Tlie Congregational church at Woodford’s Corner was handsomely decorated with flowers around the pulpit yesterday, in commemora tion of Easter. Yesterday the harbor was full of coasters, waiting for clear weather. In spite of the execrable walking yesterday, the churches were well attended, Easter obser- I vance proving in many of them strong induce ments to venture out. Snow, sleet and rain competed for the mas tery during the past thirty-six hours; which succeeded best (lie public can judge for them selves. Twenty-oiglit barrels aud four half barrels of Portsmouth cream ale were emptied into the sewer under the station house on Saturday. Fifty men were engaged on Saturday to work in the Cape Ann Granite Company’s quarry, j Mr. John N.

The school is in a most flourishing Condition under the vigorous and efficient man agement of its accomplished Superintendent. , -~ -um: ^ c uxa, mm mg from Portland, was injured on the Cheshire railroad, Massachusetts, and is now under medical treatment at Fitchburg. It is thought he will recover. That kind of April showers that begun last Saturday and continued uutil this morning is not understood to he of the variety that has tens May flowers. Friday moruiug as the through freight on the Maine Central was passing Danville Junction, a box .car loaded with iron jumped the track and rolled over bottom side up beside the track. The shackle which hound it to the next car be hind did not at once break, and that car was lifted high in the air, and when it came down was in a demoralized condition. The steamship Polynesian, CapL Brown, from Liverpool 3d inst., arrived at this port at 2 45 A. M. this morning. Pbksbn’Tatios.— The members of the Ariou Club, Friday evening, presented their pianist, Miss Fannie E Jordan, with five elegant vol umes of Beethoven’s and Mozart’s Sonates, Meudelssbou’s Songs without words, and Cha pin’s Waltzes, all complete. The presentation was made by Dr. S. C. Fernald, in behalf of the Club, and a gentleman present responded very gracefully for Miss Jordan. This lady is fast gaining for herself a name as a pianist. Military.—An order will appear to-day from tbe Adjutant General’s office announcing the appointment of Gen. George L. Beal, Captain «f tbe Norway Light Infantry, as Aid-de-Catnp, with tbe rank of Colonel, on the general staff, with orders to report to Major General Cham berlain, who will assign 1dm to be the chief of his staff. M .\DAY VERTICES. . The Observance of Easier No more gloomy aud discouraging day, as fi as tlie weather was concerned, could have t f any possibility had a place in the calendar f< an Easter Sunday than yesterday. The sk was clouded; all day there was falling rail snow or sleet, the streets and sidewalks wer covered with a mixture of dirt and slosh, and so slippery that walking was umlomforta hie. Within the churches, however, all wa bright and beautiful, and the glad cardls o Easter and the sweet flowers which typifiet and glorified the day, filled the several edifice with” perfume and song. Music and flower were the aids of the service, and the resource; of the florist and the taste aud skill of th musicians were fully taxed. CON-ORESS SQUARE (UN1VERSALI8T.) At this church the floral display was probab ly the fiuest and most elaborate of any in thi city, and the effect produced, especially in th evening, when the gas was lighted, was verj fine. The elegant interior of the church pre sented tho usual magnificent appearance am was pleasing and imposing. A heavy festooi o evergreen was tastefully arranged over the entire arch, which dropped in graceful fold: down to the floor. Suspended directly from tin centre of the arch and over the altar was the “'star of Bethlehem” some four feet in diame ter, elegant in conception, design and finish, composed of evergreen, calla lilies and white rose buds. Ou the altar were two large pyra midal white bouquets,aud suspended from eacii side was two cunning little baskets filled with the choicest of flowers, smilax and other fino vines trailing below. In the recess back of the altar were two beautiful crosses filled with white rose-buds, while on tue ngnt ana outside of the arch was the motto very distinctly work ed in evergreen,—“The Saviour Hath Risen”— and on the left,—“And Man Shall Not Die.” Under each sentence was an Elegant Greek eross, beautiful in design and finished in ever green. The recess and platform around the alter were completely filled with pots of calla lilies and choice plants in full bloom, sufficient in number to resemble a miniature garden, and which filled the church with their delicious porfume. Running from tho point of the arch to each side was an invisible wire, from which were suspended baskets filled with magnificent white roses, smilax, passion vines and other beautiful flowers. In front of the altar was a large, elegant anchor—the emblem of Faith, presenting the idea of being .rooted and ground ed in hope—filled with fine evergreen and covered with white roses, heath, myrtle, ger aniums and other choice flowers. From the gas lights were suspended baskets of ivy, while a magnificent floral harp was placed in front of the organ. Elegant vases on each end of the platform were filled with rare flowets and running vines. On the communion table were elegant bouquets and wreaths, a beautiful bouquet in memory of the late Leonard Billings and an elegant wreath in memoriam of tho late Miss Mary A. Butler, who was for a long time a teacher in the Sunday School. The very disa greeable weather which prevailed yesterday, seemed to have no effect in diminishing the at tendance at this church, a larger number being present than any Sunday for a month past. All present felt fully repaid for venturing out on such a discouraging day, in the privilege they had of listening to the very eloquent sermon by the pastor* Rev. W. E. Gibbs, who commenced his discourse by saying: I will take my text, this morning, from my surroundings. They speak to us to-day, and though every other voice was silent,they would express our praise, our joy and our hope. These beautiful flowers arc themselves teachers, in structing us concerning the creative ski.l of the great Architect, and of our dependence up on Him for what there is of life and loveliness, of gladness and growth. How charmingly they adorn the house of God, and with what pleas ure our eyes finger upon their beauty. After the long, cold winter, how refreshing to see such evidences of fife, and to realize that soon the whole face of nature shall be wreathed in like graceful and gladsome charms. Surely, noue can refuse to praise God, “for His guild - ness and for His wonderful works to the child ren of men.” Looking upon these attractive and delightful witnesses of our Fathers’ love, our hearts must be dead and cold indeed, if they can find nothing to rejoice in, and nothing to hope for in that affection of God. He who thus clothes the grass of the field which is so soon cut down and witherctb, shall He not much more clothe you? Oh, how weak is hu man faith in Divine power, that men can look upon such beauty, and yet be afraid to trust to God, to call forth from every fife something equally satisfactory and lovely! That He calls from earth the rich loveliness of which her life is capable, is but testimony of His design to educe from humanity the best that inheres to their souls. Why else are such grand possibil ities given us? We cannot suppose He will allow any to remain defective when only His will is necessary to make them faultless. Were luis iuc mi, wc ouuuiu nave guuu vaust? LU lie spair. But the life here is but the beginning, the budding wich many, the promise to bud with many; the full flower is beyond, the per fect fruit still further on, in life’s continuous chain of evolution. The fruit that in early sum ■ meris hard and sour,mellowed by the autumnal sun becomes rich iu juicy sweetness. So may souls, that here but partially develope their powers, under the influence of the heavenly radience and sunshine, become mellowed to perfect obedience, and sweet with love’s sub missive trust. When the dark river is over passed, God still leads the soul, seeks to evolve its good, and continues his endeavor until the cerements are broken open, under the influence of love’s sunshine, and the leaf breaks forth, the blossoms fill the air with fragrance, and fruit, at last, rewards the patient providence of God. Not in a momeut, not in a day, but in the fullness of time, everything is ready, and the perfect result for which Jesus came is at tained. God is not glorified by failure. Hence when His effort ceases, it will be because the end has come, when, every enemy subdued through the grace and truth of Christ, God shall be all in all. These flowers teach us how to praise our maker. Though but for a day they bloom, yet they make use of every ray of sunshine, and of every drop of moisture, to evolve the perfect bloom. They answer, with most accurate fidelity, the purpose for which God created them. So ought our lives to ans-. wer the purpose of God, as to fill with content and pleasure tho hearts of the angelic host as they look on us. However brief tho existence here,human souls should make wise use of every I opportunity and privilege which wlil aid them iu developing the beauty and power which love haB made possible, and in which God’s glory is advanced as well as human good. Nor are the flowers our only teachers here to day. These symbols clothed iu evergreen, these crosses, anchors, harps, all have voices now to tell us of self-sacritice, hope aud thanks giving. With what power of inspiration they recall to our memories, Him whose life and death they symbolize. The cross, rich in the lesson of self-sacrifice, is fitly decked with ever green and adorned with lilies and roses. Looking on it here, men learn that he who lives most out of himself, lives nearest to the Father, in that self-denying love, furnishes the strongest ties to bind in closest union the Creator and His creatures. Well may we welcome the cross, and glory in it, and taking to our hearts the teaching of self-denying love, should learn to give expression to its power and loveliness. So the anchor, symbol of hope, fitly plays a part it. au,.. j ing. Wo have no right to clothe life in gloom, and drench it with tears. Despite our griev ances God is better than such thought would represent Him. The same breath that gathers can scatter the clouds, the hand that separates us can bring us together again. “Hope thou'in God.” And amidst our grievings, let there bo music too. The hymn of grateful thanksgiv ing, the song of hopeful ioy, the psalm of trust, the glad melody of love. Beside the cross stands the harp; strike its chords, and through the air there sweeps the harmony of Heaveu Angels join the triumphant song, “Jesus hath cheered the dark valley of sorrow; And bade us immortal to heaven ascend.” And the motto, “The Saviour hath risen, and Man shall not die,” how irfills out the lesson of the day. The hearts of men fiud strength in the faith thus taught The burden of grief is lightened by the hopes in Christ’s resurrec tion coufirmeu. The way of shadows has been illumined by the “Light of Life.” This day brings to us again the promise which ia Jesus is but a renewal of God’s covenant with Abra ham; “And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men after me.” “Let not your heart be troub led, neither let it be afraid.” “liaise thine eyes Bnto the skies, ti now, The Eternal cannot be o'erthrown." “Ar; .T,CWa3 Very The Easter Carol f rt and ml e'Ben’ was rendered with flue ef fect, and other music appropriate to the ocea *,on- At the concluf>°n of the evening service the flowers were made up into bouquets aud disl tributed among the sick of the society FIRST PARISH. It was indeed beautiful to pass from the cold aud storm of yesterday into the hallowed pre cincts of this ancient parish, where floral beau ty reigued and diffused a sweet perfume. Encircling the pulpit arch was a framed work of evergreen, surmounted by a beautiful cross diagonally shaped and ornamented with red aud white rose buds and delicate callas.— From the gas brackets on either side of the desk were suspended two baskets containing tulips intermixed with ivy and choice smilax. The pulpit cushion was prettily and artistically wreathed, with a memorial wreath in the cen tre, and below was a very largo and handsome ivy. The sacramental table was beautifully garlanded in front, imbedded in a ground-work of green with delicate tea rose buds iutermixed with sprigs of ivy and myrtle. In tho .centre of the table was a group of full bloomed tulips and a little to the left was a magnificent cross composed of white azaleas, camelias aud mig nonette, to the memory of the late Capt. Will iams. On the right wero very superb crosses, in memoriam to Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Boyd, and a bouquet to the memory of their son Parker. A most elegant cross of walca. and camehas was in memory of Mrs. A. W. H. Clapp. A very elegant floral cross rested upon a stand in memory of Mrs. J. N. Winslow. Around the platform were stands on which were placed r rich bouquets. The organ was neatly decorated. y Notwithstanding tho inclemency of the r day, quite a good congregation was present. ’ The music was fine and the sermon by Dr. Hill 3 was an admirable effort. It was a strong argu , moot in favor of the resurrection, and the su periority of Jesus as the Divine messenger , from God. ^ In the afternoon the Sunday school and the children of the Preblo chapel participated in , an Easter celebration. The carols by the , chapel children were tkiely rendered. Address i es were made by Dr. Hill and Rev. Mr. , Phelan. Rev. Dr. Hill preached at tho First Parish last evening, a clear and strong sermon on Christ, the Saviour. Ho took squarely the , ground that Christ was sent from God and only , by an acceptance of Him men are saved from the consequences of sin. The mnsic was very fine, embracing Kotzschmar’s “Te Deum” and closing with Coronation. st. lure’s cathedbal. 1 At both the 7 and 10£ o’clock a. m. services, the congregations were very large considering the inclement state of the weather. Rev. Mr. Hayes, chaplain of the Cathedral, and Rev. Frederick S. Sill, deacon, officiated at tho early service and administered the communion. At 10£ o’clock the full choral morning service for Easter was held, Bishop Neely and Rev. Mr. Hayes officiating. The Bishop preached a ser mon irom nomans std, loth, after which the ceremony of confirmation was administered to ten persons by Bishop Neely. The service con cluded by the administration of the Holy Eu charist. The music on the occasion was very fine in deed; the anthems and hymns were never bet ter rendered in that church. The Te Deum and Kyrie of Walter Goold’s latest composi tion, were given with very fine effect. During the offertory a duet was beautifully sung by Messrs. Batterson and Cloyes, and a solo by Mr. Cloyes; and a spesialty was the singing of a fine solo by Mr. Ingraham. The hymns were also rendered with much correctness and good taste. The floral decorations were beautiful. The baptismal font was adorned with calla lilies, aud the new credenco table, just put up by the contributions of the classmates of the late Ger trude B. Barrett, was inclosed by a memorial wreath to her. The centre of the reredos was covered with foliage and rare flowers, roses and wreaths of roses adorned the high altar, and an elegant cross of rarest flowers lay upon the Litany altar,understood to be in meraoriam of the late Rev. Mr. Root. Tho chaucel rail was covered with green foliage and white roses. - At the evening service a tenor solo, intro duced in the Psalm of the day, “Thou wilt show me the path of life,” was sung admirably by Mr. Batterson. The choir, of male voices only, has made very decided progress of late, and the members wore cassocks, presenting a uniform and neat appearance. CATHEDKAL OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION. At the Cathedral of the Immaculate Concep tion the services were deeply impressive. Rt. Rev. Bishop Bacon, assisted by Deacon Father Walker and sub-Deacon Father O’Sullivan, conducted the services. The grand altar was brilliantly illuminated, presenting a scene of imposing splendor. The altars of the Virgin, St. Joseph, and the Baptismal, were profusely decorated with flowers. The music was unusu ally attractive. Mozart’s Mass, number seven, being given. A large audieuce was in attend ance . The Bishop delivered an able discourse from Mark 10:17, “He is risen. He is not here." Jesus rose from the dead, according to his promise, to prove that he was realty the Sod of God. His resurrection is also a figure and a guarantee of the resurrection of the be liever when the Angel’s trumpet shall summon all men to the general judgment. His resur rection is likewise a figure of the resurrection of the sinner from the death of sin, or in other words, of his repentance. The characteristics of this resurrection are, that it took place early, and according to promise; that it was a real resurrection, and not a false one; that it was apparent, aud finally that it was not followed by another death. Such should be by the con version of the sinner to grace. First. It should take place immediately, for time is uncertain. Grace is not promised to us that we should have it. wlipn wo. would. Tt should hn tmI that is, he should have repentance with a firm purpose of amendment and a determination to avoid the occasion of sin for the future. Third. It should make us desire that nien, especially those whom we had scandalized by our sins, should be the witnesses of the opposite virtues in us. Fourth. We should be converted to sin no more, and it is ouly on these conditions that the resurrection of our bodies will be like to that of His glorious one. PARK STREET. The floral display at Park street church was , simple but very elegant. Tho most elaborate single piece was a beautiful cross raised upon piilars covered with white rose-buds and aza leas, a memorial of AUie A. Bryant. The singing at this church by the regular choir, as sisted by Mrs. Dennett and Miss Lewis, was exquisite, and received very general and hearty commendation. Mr. Buck’s sermon, on “Ob servance of Days,” was one of his best efforts, to which justice caunot be done in an abstract. We shall publish the sermon entire to-morrow morning. STATE STREET CHURCH. The State street Congregational church pulpit was richly decorated with floral offerings. A large bouquet of beautiful flowers filled a vase in front of the pulpit, while smaller bouquets with green festooning were arranged with ex quisite taste on either side. The pastor, Rev. E. Y. Hincks, preached in the morning from the words, “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” The sermon presented very forcibly the duty cf the Christian to de velope in this life the teachings of the Lord Jesus. INDIA STREET. At this church services were held appropriate for Easter. After the devotional exercises and the excellent rendering of an Easter anthem and suitable hymns, Rev. Mr. Bicknell deliver ed a discourse suited to tho occasion, founded upon the text in Matthew,28th, 6th—“He is not here Ho is risen” PINE STREET CHURCH. At the Pine Street Methodist Church Sunday morning the pastor, Rev. Mr. Hannaburgh, preached from 1st Corinthians 1:18, on the pow er of the cross of Christ. Allusion was made in the sermon to Easter. The evening services at the various churches were thinly attended owing to the bad state of the weather. At the Cathedral of the Immaculate Concep tion the grand Pontifical Vespers were given. Bishop Bacon was assisted by Fathers O’Calla ghau, Bradley, Wallace and O’Sullivan. Over the grand aiiar, in auumon ui me decorations or tho morning, was a gas jet forming the word, “Resurrexi.” The music was very fine. The vestments of the Bishop, Priests and Altai' boys were new and presented an attractive ap poarance._ Closing op Pabk Street.—Messrs. J. p. Yorston & Co., the energetic con tractors, have reached Park street on the line of excavation for the extension of the Boston & Maine Rail road toward Maple street, and accordingly this morning that portion of Park street lying be tween York and Commercial streets will he closed for public travel, and the whole force of Messrs. Yorston & Co. will be upon that point in order to cut through that street in the short est time possible. It Is expected that the per manent iron bridge to cross the railroad on Park street will be ready to put on the abut ments as soon as they are made ready to receive it. High street will now have to be used as the nearest approach to the several railroad sta tions on West Commercial street. That Matinee.—It is rumored that the matinee of that highly moral troupe last Satur day afternoon, for the benefit of the Maine General Hospital, was not so successful as to ho able to enrich the treasury of that noble ebari y to the amount of one cent. The troupo was greeted with full houses both Friday aud Sat ur ay cveuings hut Saturday afternoon the au <1 e was ight. The performers are, howev rln'rsement V” 8ecuriu8 the very favorable en dorsement of a number .1 , noer of gentlemen whose names cannot bo obtained every day. Impobtant Mail Fa™ ments have been made by Gen Postmaster of Boston, to forward' a "vi from Boston to Halifax. It will be » Eastern Railroad at 12.30 m. on Tuesday” and Saturdays to this city, connecting immediately with the fast steamships Falmouth and Carlot ta, and landed at Halifax next evening, This will prove of great convenience to tho Boston merchants in their correspondence with the province. „ 4 The Caey Concebt —We are fortunate to have a City Hall in which almost every scat is good for concert purposes. Otherwise there would be many unfortunates at the Cary Con cert to-morrow night, as it now seems certain that every seat will be occupied. The audience will be as fine as can be gathered in Portland, the immense and unprecedented sale of seats so long in advance indicating that our host citi zens propose to avail themselves of this oppor tunity to enjoy a rich musical treat and to do merited honor to an artiste, who is so highly and justly esteemed. The celebrated young pianiste, Mile. Teresa Carredo, will add much to the attractions of the concert and will be re ceived with the more interest as it is her first appearance in Portland. The seats now re maining unsold will undoubtedly he rapidly taken to-day.

On being aroused he with difficulty proclaimed himself a citizen of Scarborough. The kind-hearted Bradish took off his own overcoat, wrapped the man in it and placed him in Dr. Locke’s door way, and then hastened to the performance of his regular duties. On his return an hour afterwards, he found both the man and the coat “non est.” Tiie Trial op Wagner.—Wo understand that tho counsel of Wagner will make au effort to have his trial take place at the next term of the Supreme Court in this county instead of Alfred. It is said that Gen. Plaisted is in favor of the change. York county will probably be glad to get rid of the large bill attending the trial. _ Fatal Accident"—Saturday morniug about nine o’clock, a young man named Fred Elden, a son of Gibeon Elden of this city, while in the act of stooping to take some bolts from a box in the building, was caught by the head between a pile of castings and the planer-table, and had his head badly crushed.

It seems that General Frederick Arlington is dead, his widow residing here at St. Charles Hotel (not in Charles street, Boston), and that the woman picked up in pretended sickness on tho streets of Brooklyn is an unmitigated fraud.

General Ord, commanding the department of Platte, was telegraphed to for reinforcements and replied by sending a detachment of cavalry. The Indian peace agents seek to explain these troubles by the old story that bad men have been gelling the Indians whiskey, but it is only too evident that a combination of circumstances □as overiiirowu me peace policy anu is iineiy to precipitate an Indian war. Generals Sherman and McDowell had an in terview with the President this morning. Gen. McDowell, who commands the military divis of the South, has been for several months past jn an inspecting tour in his division, with a riew of making such changes of posts and concentration of troops as will secure greater economy in expenditures, It is probable that awing to the peaceful state of affairs in South Carolina and Georgia, some of the troops now itationed there will be concentrated elsewhere before his departure West, fokeiqn .
