We would harlily commend this lecture of our enterprising citizen, not only to the people of Maine, but to those of other States The Old Folks’ Concert.—The Congress street Methodist church was full last evening on the occasion of the Old Folks’ Concert.

Thomas, Charles Chase aud the Misses Leavitt were heartily encored aad contributed not a little to the evening’s en tertainment. The lavishly spread tables in the vestry were generally patronized, and the worthy people of the society are exceedingly gratified that their concert has been appreciat ed, and that they have a good sum as the pro ceeds left to aid them in their good work. The entertainment will be repeated in about two weeks. IiowDOtN College Exhibition.—The Sen ior and Junior exhibition at Bowdoiu College, Monday night, was very successful.

The maximum are now allowed on the New York and New Haven, the roads all nlnmr the lake shore and several Boston and Washington roads. Mr. Davis said he considered postal cars a necessity. They save time and ensure prompt ness in the delivery of mails. Concerning the complaint yesterday of Mr. Harris of the Con necticut Valley road of inadequacy of compen sation, no official notification to that effect has been made to Mr. Creswell. Sir. Harris said they had often complained previous to Creswell’s term and had given up in despair.

The exaction^of pilotage on vessels eugaged in commercial transactions betweeu New York aud other States w'hen no pilot service is rendered,appears to me to be unneighborly a'd unreasonable, ;i,‘J, 1, respectfully recommend that the act of chabter 293 of the laws of 1872, he so amended as to exempt all coasting vessels fl,°™ the requirements referred to. The records of the Port Warden’s office show that the whole of pilotage collected on vessels navigating Hell Gate from April, 1871, to March 12,1873, was $89,107.50, as follows: Foreign vessels piloted 1409, $24,028.60; American vessels subject to pilotage 4056, $43,203.58; Ainoricau vessels not subject to pilotage 1837, $12,084.11; half pilot age collected 1818, $9,771.11.

WASHINGTON. JVewa from the Indian Country—Had In dians, and Worn Whites. Washington, April 10.—The Secretary of the Interior has received a letter from the Modoc Peace Commissioner Meacham, which Meacham says the principal impediment to the peace negotiation is the fear that the Indians indicted by the Jackson County grand jury will be given up for punishment. The peace commissioner and military however are wont ing together harmoniously to overcome the dis trust of Modocs, but a difficulty is encountered from the intervention of bad white men, who from mercenary motives desire the prolonga tion of the war. Meacham says that the de sire of the government is well understood by his colleagues, and the military, aud that no means will be left unturned to secure peadbr Secretary Delano had Advised the military not to give up the indicted ludians, but rather to remove them if they surrender. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs has re ceived a letter stating that it has not j*et be*11 discovered who were the perpetuators of'toe murder of the four surveyors.
