THE PRESS.I WEDNESDAY MORNING, APR. 16 . ’73. Ewry regular attache of the Press is furnished with a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and hote managers will confer a favor ui*on us by demandihg credentials of cver\ person claiming to represent our journal, as we have Information that several “bum mers” arc seeking courtesies iu the name of the Piikss, and we have no disposition to be, even pas sively. a party to such fraud. W k do not read anonymous letters and* eommuni cni ions. The name and address of the writer are in all eases iudispo ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. \V 3 cannot undertake to return or re erve eon** muuicauous that are uot used. Yestebdav gold declined from 118^ to 117f. _ The public will be glad to know that O’Kelly, the New York Herald Cuba corre spondent is perfectly sate. Where now is Stanley and Dr. Livingstone ? The interior of the State reports from two to three feet of snow, with hay plenty and stock looking finely. Yet the possessors of »o many blessings are not happy. Thebe will be no ball playing in Maine on Past Day. In fact, His Excellency didn t have the national game in mind when he set apart the day. _ Pkbhaps the fact that tbe expenses of the Pennsylvania Legislature are paid wholly by a tax levied ou railroads, has led that body to mistake its real mission under the delusion that it must servo those who pay for its scr trlena It must be that Henry Watterson, the bril liant editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, and one of the authors of the Greeley move ment, has seen the folly of that attempt, for the St. Louis Democrat reports that he is now advocating the election of Speaker Blaine to the presidency in 1876. It is said that Jay Gould is suffering of heart disease. There may be those who doubt his possession of that organ; but if true, he should,like his associates, brother Daniel Drew and Commodore Yandeshilt, hasten to estab lish and endow a denominational college. How strange it would sound—the “Jay Gould Theological Scmiuary.” The people of an Interior town, w ishing to avail themselves of the provisions of the free h'gh school bill, and being indoubt as to the true meaning of the law, consulted, one after the other, the Superintendent of Common Schools, the Attorney General, several “able legislators, ten legal experts, a spiritual medi um, a Judge of the Supreme Court and a clairvoyant. Each gave an opinion different from all the rest, and at latest accounts insan ity and suicide are alarmingly on the increase in the rural districts. ' The condition of the Russian peasantry and operatives m the factories of that nation Is deplorable, and is getting worse instead of better. More than sixty per cent, of the operatives suffer from maladies caused by the neglect of sanitary precautions in their dwel lings and general mode of living It is furth er said that fifty-seven per cent, of the chil dren die before they are five years of age and ! that the average length of life is not over twenty years. The condil ion of the agricul tural classes is worse and has not been im proved since the nominal abolition of serf dom. They live In huts, covered with sheep skins, and eat with and live like brutes. Emancipation has not resulted in their ad • vantage, because the government has taken no treasures to educate them or raise them from degredaiion. Have the Maine Central officer's entered Into any contract with “Prof. John Haynes,” “Slim-Jim” and their countryficd looking confederate whereby the smoking cars on their regular trains are converted into saloons in which these blacklegs may victimize un wary passengeis ? If so, it is hardly fair to 4-l.n 1_1!_it_ il_t •_ -iMWIIMh, lUVUl ouiviwug cars?” Why not be manly about it and have them re-lettered: Prof. Haynes’ Three Card Monte Saloons ? We are credibly informed that this disreputable game was allowed to proceed on Tuesday’s train from Bangor, openly and continuously. The parties en gaged in the business were “Prof. John Haynes” and “Slim Jim.” They had in ad dition a fellow to act as decoy who outward ly bore the appea'rance of being from the “rural deestricts” on his fust visit to town. We regret the necessity of being compelled to notice these outrageous proceedings again. The conductors bn the Maine Central would make short work of this business were they directed so to do by those above them. We hope they will see that a stop is put to this sort of thing and help to send the blacklegs to jail. _ Auoi-sta mourns the premature snuffing out of a prospective shoe factory. It happen ed thus. Waverly Hall—a building that for many years, under various names, has been nsed for various purposes, and not so remark able as a “thing of beauty” that it should be preserved simply on the ground of being a “joy forever”—was about to be transformed into a shoe factory. How there is nothing objectionable in shoe factories per se; indeed, more people would be unhappy without these industrial institutions, than now suffer the pangs inflicted by ill-fitting and diminutive pedal adornments, but sundry gentlemen liv ing on Wintbrop street near Waverly Hall, think otherwise. So when Mr. Staples, the practical owner, asked the city fathers 'for power to put a steam engine into the build ing with a view of making it a shoe factory, these parties were thrown into consternation. They had visions of dctatchments of Waver ly Hall flying through the air aDd lighting in their gardens. They dolorously predicted that life would be a burden when shoes came to he made by steam in Waverly Hall, and that death by any other means than by the fragments of Waverly intruding upon their privacy,would be joyously welcomed. Besides, there was a whisper of the annoyance of burning leather, smoke, unfashionably dress ed workmen and “things.” But Staples in sisted and secured the right to an >oy the good people with the steam engine aud its concom itants. Argument failed, entreaty was vain; so now these persecuted people, bankers,mer chants, manufacturers, lawyers, all, make up a little pool of $5000, for which Mr. Staples concludes to sell them the lot and remove Waverly to less fashionable quarters. And now the State Capitol iu ordinary mourns an opportunity forever lost. New York letter. The City charter—A disagreement—He ro rm In IVcw Yorii—tlauT men of many artnrts t(Olnrplij'-phobiit—The President and Hr. Cnrtis—A sample of practical Vacation* pm to candidates—Wall street. rsEw York, April, 12 lolo. At last, the two houses cl' our State Legis lature have passed a charter for the city of cw ork. But unfortunately the charter adopted by the Senate is so unlike that sent 0 ^ ° "3r'mljly, that the work ofrccon n ing d.aercnces threatens to occupy the whole of next week, with doubtful chances of (Tuccess even then. The two cardinal points of disagreement' are in reference to the appointing powor ’ the retention of certain heads of Depart ments. The Assembly proposed to give the power in question to the Board of Aldermen euhject to the approval of the Mayor. The Senate reserved to itself the selection of Con troller, Counsel to the Corporation, Commis sioner of Public Works, President of the Park Commission anil President of the Board of Police—the five highest offices crea ted by the charter—and gave the Mayor the privilege of naming the others, by and with the advice and consent of the Board of Al dermen. These conflicting views can only be reconciled by a compromise. A proposition was made early in the week by several lead ing Republicans to dispose of the whole mat ter by delegating the appointing power to the Mayor, subject to the concurrence *^e President of the Board of Aldermen. . lerations which com wero a great many emu** In tho first mended this alternative to i hail place it was a new xhe adoption provoked no adverse cntlcMm ^ bands of it might involve conCM ^ faction, but could give triumph to n > In the next place it was e^ely ^ ^ Mayor and the President of the dermen are both gentlemen 0 r bi(rbl universally respected, anJ ° “ obity and'in standing in the community P • .. telligence to risk popular erit.c.smby makm bad appointments. Besides it iS«uchlessd^n gerousto give a contingent hold upon pat™ age to one well-known^ ^ mcll, share his responsibility, than c wbo many of them fh“ odinin of con might divide between nominees upon senting to s e project is in reality the JSJSonaWe than any of the otli Z unices we except that of giving the pow er exclusivelytIie Mayor, a thing it is ab J d to talk about, because there isn’t a Re publican in the Legislature who would go for it. But reform in New York after it has con yuered its open enemies is sure to be hinder- ! ed and badgered by its professed friends. In the committee of seventy, the new scheme of dual executive power was presented by the ablest adviser on charter matters there ;= the committee and was heartily sustained by another member scarcely second to him in practical sense and familiar with local affairs; but it was voted down, every negative vote proceeding from a Democrat, a coincidence which goes a great way to en courage the growing impression that politics are finding their way iuto the councils of this non partisan body. Weil, shortly after this, the subject was in troduced at the monthly meeting of the Un ion League Club. It was freely debated, and there were indications that the plan would be endorsed by a decisive majority, when, after every body had become exhausted by the dis cussion, Park Godwin sprung a substitute, which was so much more denunciatory of the action of the Senate in retaining certain heads of Departments, that the meeting for got for the moment that it left the vital point at issue precisely where it was before, and adopted the substitute with a hurrah. Where upon a motion was quickly made to adjourn and the whole proceedings ended in-noth ■ ing. So true is it as some old philosopher has said, ‘Tf every Athenian were a Socrates an assemblage »f Athenians would still he a mob.” What between the Tammany Hall demo crats who want a thoroughly anti Republican Charter; the Apollo Hall democrats who want their especial Representatives in the common council to have a voice in the confirming power because it is an element of political traffic; the regular Republicans who believe that with the control of the city they can give the people such an admirable local ad ministration as will ensure their continuance in power for a long time to come; and the genuine Reformers who care very little for party but very much for the general good— who want economy, cleanliness, order—an attractive city to wich visitors may come with a sense of security against thieves, bruisers and murderers; and in which men may live without being utterly consumed by onerous taxation and exorbitant assessments; between. these divergent interests and motives, it is very difficult to fix a basis of agreement on whicli an organic law shall be framed to the satisfaction of all. I make no account of the guerillas who want no charter. These arc the incumbents of offices under the instru* mctit devised by Tweed, Hall, Sweeny and Connelly to give them a perpetual base of Manhattan Island. They are powerful in numbers and rich in the unchallenged plun der they acquired before their masters were expelled. But being naturally odious they mostly burrow in secret and execute their plans by indirection. They have exactly the measure of power which is derivable from the possession of patronage, no more and no less. How much that will prove to be we shall Know within the next seven days, The fmperative necessity for enacting a chatter is the strongest reason for hope that one will be agreed upon. The Republicans of the State ot New York would never for give a member ol the Legislature who by any act of omission or commission helped to throw away the golden opportunity to render this great service to the party, to the city and to the State. Any charter is better than none, and in the midst of such conflicting views as the wide spread discussion of the subject has elicited, almost any plan which shall fi nally be adopted, w ill meet with general ac quiesencc. Most unquestionably this will be so if the immediate result should prove to be the bestowal of power upon a higher class of men and the infusion of greater vitality into all the departments of municipal government. Mr. Greeley's successor is subject to chronic and violent attacks of a malignant disease which I cannot better describe than by calling it Murphy-pliobia. It breaks out every little while in various sizes of type, and several columns of aggravated bile. It is the old, old story, and its frequent re-appearance suggests the inference that it is kept standing in the composing room, ready for use at a moment’s notice. I dare say there are great numbers of people at a distance from New York, who read these wretched fabrications of an irate bohemian with an idea that they contain at least some grains of truth. I confess it is hard to com prehend how a man of education and having some outward semblances of a gentleman, could fall so low as to pile up day by day pyramids of abuse of an honest, unoffending private citizen against whom he had no greater cause of hostility than that he refused him a seat in a State Convention in conse quence of his not being a regular delegate thereto. * And yet it is so. Nobody knows better than this wicked caluminalor that every count and specification in bis long indict ment against Mr. Murphy is without the smallest shadow of a shade of foundation in fact. He is perfectly aware that Mr. Mur phy’s dealings with tha government were honorable anil patriotic—that he is a man en- j tirely above reproach, a frank, hearty, ingen- | uous. whole-souled nentleman. verv mnpti i teemed by everybody who knows him, and ! with an open purse and generous sympathy i for every charity. But it suit" his purpose to make war upon Km, and he does it with ! ail the ferocity of a Malay and the treachery : of the captain of the Modocs. Heaven save i us from such “journalism” as this! If the ■ coni'try is to derive its opinion of New York- j ers from these poisoned sources, there will be as wide a divergence between character and reputation as there is between truth and the Tribune. The resignation from the Civil Service commission of Mr. George William Curtis lias furnished occasion for a fresh considera tion of the practicability of Civil Service Re form. Mr. Curtis may be said to he the orig inator of that plan for infusing vitality and the chances ol promotion into the various corps of government officials to which the rules were made applicable. The fact that Mr. Curtis had relinquished j his post was seized upon by the editors, who j have made it a habit for years to carp at the ! President, to insinuate the idea that there j had been a disagreement between Gen. Grant and Mr. Curtis. The latter has set [he matter right by giving to the public his el ter of resignation. Between two such men is George William Curtis and U. S. Grant, [here is a natural law of attraction. They iave much in common. Mr. Curtis is one of die few men of the country in whose honor, uirity and patriotism everybody has implicit faith. Of course such a man would naturally be captivated by the straight forward honesty, sincerity and manliness of the soldier Presi dent, and the latter was equally certain to form an abiding friendship for the gifted scholar and accomplished citizen,in whom he ^covered no aims of self seeking, but who «,^i5e^y to dev°te himself zealously to the IM.°;Sr"otinSthe public welfare, of the causM°™m Tlli,e to enter int0 a history chinery ofthe CommCC“i0nally SOt th° raa' the President someu^‘0n-0Ut 01 ^ If Mr. Curtis did ’£u?rted the rules, wrong.

She appeared before the Board of Inquisitors and they asked these questions: 1. What two great rivers enter into the Cas pian sea? “■ What is the isothermal line of the State of New York? 3. When may the writ of habeas corpus be suspended? Site broke down on all hut the first of the interrogatories, and lost the place. Thinking she would fortify herself against a subsequent mishap of like kind she inquired of a disting uished Senator, who is now serving his third term in that branch of Congress, when the writ of habeas corpus' could be suspended. “Madame” replied he uthat is a thing the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court himself doesn t knowf” Wall street has been borrowing money a’l through the week at rates varying from ‘7 to 275 per cent, per annum,all for the purpos’ of keeping up the prices of stocks which are ev er so much too high and ought to foil Fran tic appeals are being made to the Secretary of ine Treasury to expand the currency and‘ re lieve the gamesters, but he could not inflict a more grievous injury upon legitimate indus b>' heeding this cry ol distress. Bet ter let things take their course. Tile law of gravitation is the best and most uncliangable statute for such cases, and always works out good results in tlic end, Yarmouth. Evans’ Repeating Rifle.—The Legisla ture last winter chartered a stock compauy, with a capital of §200,000 to manufacture Evans’ repeating rifles in this State. Dr. Ev ans; the inventor of the rifle, writes that the company are thinking of establishing their works in Portland. We copy the following de scription of the piece from the Lynn Transcript: In these days, when all nations are striving for a new' firearm which will do the greatest execution in the shortest space of time, a great many are brought before the public; but we venture to say that one of the most destructive weapons ever produced has lately been invent ed by Dr. W. It. Evans of this city, (formerly of Thomaston, Me.) It has met with the com mendation of a great many o the best military the best magazine gun in the world. This riflo can be fired thirty-eight times in nineteen sec onds, from tlie magazine,and twenty-four times a minute retaining the magazine—or, in other words, the magazine, which has a capacity of thirty-eight charges, once filled, can be kept so ior use in a great emergency, while at the same time charges can be placed in singly and fired at the rate of twenty-four a minute. As a sin gle breech loader it can be discharged from twenty-five to thirty times a minute. It is strong and well proportioned in all its parts, its calibre is forty-four ono hundreths, and its weight but eight and three-fourths pounds. The Scene of the Massacre.—The “lava beds” in which Capt Jack and bis fellow mis creants are lurking, are situated in the county of Siskiyou,the northwestern county of Califor nia. They are a little way south of Rhelt and Wright lakes, which just touch the line sepa rating California and Oregon. The surface of Siskiyou county is mouutainous, Mount Shasta standing in the southwestern part of it. The county contains about seven thousand square miles. The “lava beds” are not lava beds at all. The prevailing rock in that part of the country is trap, the particular place where the Modocs are situated being covered 'with columns and irregularly formed masses of basalt, a rock of volcanic origiu, the fiuest specimens of which exist at the Giant’s Causeway and at Fingal’s Cave. The preciso limits of this natural forti fication are not given in the books. It is well adapted to tlie Indian style of warfare, ami since it can be defended with comparative safe ty the Modoc3 may make a vigorous defence. Postage.—The Postoflice Gazette for April calls the attention of publishers to the neces sity of arranging their business to conform to the new postal regulations concerning the non trausmission of free mail matter after Juno 30th. Newspapers and periodicals now sent free will bo charged as follows: Not exceeding four ounces, weekly, 5 cents; semi-weekly, 10 cents; tri-weekly, 15 cents: six times a week,30 cents; daily, 35 cents. Exceeding four and not exceeding eight ounces, weekly, 10 cents; semi weekly, 20 cents; tri-weeklv, 30 cents; six times a week, GO cents; daily, TO cents Ex ceeding eight and not exceeding twelve ounces, weekly, 15 cents; semi-weekly 31 cents; tri weekly 45 cents; six tithes a week 00 cents; daily, S1.05.

Appointment of a Maine Man.—Governor Kellogg of Louisiana, has appointed Chas. W. Boothby, a native of Saco, Superintendent of Education for the city of New Orleaus. The New Orleans Republican in speaking of the ap pointment says: Captain Boothby is a native of Maine, and had the best advantages for an education that New England affords. He had several years experience us a teacher, and laid down the fe rule when he took up the musket in 18G1. He has been for the past two years a most efficient member of the city school board, and served as chairman of the committee on teachers. News and Other Items.

Brevet Major General Jefferson C. Davis, now Colonel of the 23d Infantry, who has been assigned to the command of the Department of the Columbia, in place of the murdered Gen.

J Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the i liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs .that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia arc the causes of two-tliiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the'bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to > loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling someiimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp

Persons so affected, if they lake one or two heavy colds, and if the congh in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, tho lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result.

ITBANN, OF BOSTON, Who has made so many Wonderful Cures all over the New England States, is at the PREBLE HOUSE, And will Remain a Few Weeks. Every invalid shoa’d seo him.no matter what their complaint may be, 20,000 Patients have been Treated by him within the last ten years, with Wonderful Success. Read the following Wonderful Cares in Maine : Dr. Urann, who has marie so mang wondorful cures in this town and others, will remain in town but a short t ime longer. He has had good success. The case of Mr. J. B. Redman, Attorney at Law in this town, is truly a wonderful one, when Dr. Urann was calloa to see him a week ago Friday, he was not able to turn himself in bed; ho is now able to walk the street and is daily gaining strength.—[Ellsworth American. The above statement, so far as I am concerned, is but the simple truth, and I cheerfully endorse it as an act of justice to Dr. Urann, and earnestly recom mend all person* afflicted with Rheumatism, Neu ralgia, or other kindred complaints, whether acute or chronic, to give him a call, being sanguine that he ! will cure them. JOHN B. REDMAN. Ellsworth, Jau. 7, 1873. This will certify that I was troubled with Sciatic Rheumatism and suffered great pain, was unable to sleep without taking morphine, could not walk. I was carried to Dr. Urann’s offlcc, at the DeWitt House, and after one treatment was free from pain, and have been able to work ever since. A. W. BAILEY. Auburn, May 7, I860. _ ... Lewiston, May 7, 1869. This will certify that I had lost the use of my lower limbs and was unable to walk or even stand, had several physicians who pronounced my case incura ble. He aring of Dr. Urann’s Wonderful Cures, I sent for him. In less than a week wai able to walk in the streets, and can now walk two miles daily. JAMES F. BRADBURY. Ellsworth. Oct. 8, 1867. To the Machias Republican.—Gents:—As Dr, Urann,' of Boston, is about visiting your place, and a stranger in these parts, I know very well, like most physicians traveling, he will be looked upon with sus picion, particularly as his cures look miraculous. I nad been obliged to walk on crutches for one year, and for nine months wa* not able to put my foot to the floor. My spine and arm were also so lame as to nearly disable me. I could not dress or undress my self, or get oft the bed without help. He treated my case last Friday morning, and in less than an hour after I was able to walk home, a distance of nearly half a mile, up hill, without crutches, and have been gaining ever since. J. R.
