T pjb pjRESS. ^ifxOEHSft ATBIL 21^1873. Eyzry regular attache of the Pbesr Is furnished wltb a oard certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat aud bote mauager* will confer a favor upon us by demanding ered atials of every i*erson claiming to represent our iouroal, as wc have information that several “bum mers" are seeking courtesies in the name of the **it«s9, and we have no dispo>ltion to be, even pas * vely, a party to such fraud. W do not road anonymous lettcra and communi cations. The name and address of the writer are in ull cases luJispo ab e, Did necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. Wo cannot undertake to return or re erve com munications that arc not t&e-i. The Pulpit ou Jonraalism. The sermon of Itev. Mr. ELincks of Slate Street Church, on “The Press,” which we publish on our first page, is a very fair anti in telligent statement of the powers and oppor tunities for good and evil which the profes sion of journalism affords and the faults which are observable to a greater or less extent in all papers, and which no cue sees so clearly and deplores so keenly as the conscientious journalist. It must be borne in mind, howev er, while reading the sermon, that the preacii- j er is seeking to depict an ideal newspaper, ; precisely as he seeks to present to his heaters art ideal course of lite, not with an expecta tion that, anyone of them will actually attain if, but with the purpose of fixing a high stand ard, the pursuit of which shall lead them to ward that eecelleuce which cannot be abso lutely achieved. Thus some of the faults of the press depicted in this sermon are offences perhaps against the ideal, but aie inseparably connected with the real and will never be ful ly cured until we can publish millennial jour nals for millennial readers. Alargenewspa per is of so extended connections, and draws its material from so many minds and so many sources of information, that, however sincere and honest may be the purpose of its head to present nothing but what is truthful, and to advocate nothing whose influence direct or Indirect shall be bad. occasional lapses mu t necessarily occur; and it is quite too common a form of injustice for the critical reader to seize upon isolated instances of this kind .as a basis of slashing denunciations of the man agement of a paper, without duly considering Its general good character and tone in mitiga tion of bis strictures. As to the power of the press, a very moder ate and reasonable statement is given. The constant presentation of facts and the fre quent repetition of arguments on any ques non ui men in a journal which iuey uae—auu men generally feel a sort of personal friendli ness for their favorite journals—must have a very powerful influence on their opinions. The indirect influence is much greater than the direct, for people dislike to feel themselves consciously led or influenced, and yet the di rect influence is very considerable. How common it is for people to inquire what “the papors say” on all subjects of general interest, and how easy it is to adopt an opinion whose basis and supporting arguments are supplied ready made. Mr. Hinck’s example of the slight eflect of the Tribune in leading people astray last summer, will seem of less value to him when he considers how promptly and effi ciently journals of equally high character, all over the country, disclosed the motives of the Tribune'« apostasy and the fallacy of the statements and arguments by which it sought to justify its action. Had there been no jour nals opposed to it, or, more strongly, had they joined it in its mad attempt, the result would quite possibly have been reversed. The newspapers must accept large respon sibility for public opinion and action; a re sponsibility which the journalist who appre ciates it views with full sense of his own hu man) fallibility: but wc believe that ail respectable members of the profession try as conscientiously to do right, as members of the clerical or any other profession. That they are glad to have faults pointed out and improvements suggested is shown by the general good temper and kindliness in which they receive criticisms upon their ac tion. The temperate and logical strictures of Mr. Hincks, and even the intemperate and violent denunciation, in what Dr. Car rutbers, with a fine sarcasm, calls a “devo tional” meetings are treated with respectful consideration—the only sharp response evok ed being in the case of one who, in ostensibly defending journalism, charged it with venali ty Of course in this case it became neces sary to show the character of the source from which the inuendo proceeded. The yast improvement in character for the past thirty years, so well stated by Mr. Hincks, gives good assurance that the high * standard which those having a pride in their profession place for themselves, is near attain ment. If we fail to fully reach the ideal, we at least have the advantage of a sincere and * honest attempt for excellence. Toe two last reports of the bureau of sta tistics relative to exports and imports are de cidedly cheering when compared with the fifteen months previous to September 30th. The imports to this country for that period exceeded the exports in the sum of $131,000, 000. Since that time, however, a great revo lution has taken place. The statistics for October and November show that our exports amounted to $117,427,892. The importa tions tor the same months were $90,848,280. Thus in two mouths the exports exceeded the imports by twenty millions. The net gain of exports averaged more than thirteen millisns a month, and if continued until the end of July will carry our exports for the year above our imports, and exhibits a for eign commerce oi more than $1,360,000,000 in place of half that amount in 1869. The quiet city of Portmouth, N. II., has a small religious war of its own. Portmouth, be it known, is something of a Puritanical town that has come to the conclusion that aside from the Fourth of July, church bells are notto be rung before sun rise except as fire alarms. Easter morning the rector of the Episcopal church ordered the sexton to usher in the day with a lively ringing of the bells; but that official fearing the terror of the law more than the denunciation cf his spirit ual adviser, flatly refused. Thereupon the rector sent his son and there was an alarm betimes that dismal stormy morning, bring ing hundreds of people from their couches and stirring up a fire of indignation that will not be quenched except by the resignation of the rector. In the case where parties sued a telegraph company to recover damages for sending a telegram to another city than that to which it was directed, the Supreme Court ol Massa chusetts has decided that the person sending a message is bound by the printed heading of the telegraph blanks, by which the company is held not responsible for mistakes or failures in messages which are not repeated or insur ed. Chief Justice Chapman said in conclud ing his opiuion“It seems to us that one who elects to save the small sum charged for a more extended liability cannot reasonably claim the benefit of it, in a business where °*)eratoM are 80 liable to make mis ' rb<‘ recognized learning and high interest t 1110 C0UIt render this opinion of interest and importance.

Measuring the life of Mr. Sewardl^ this scale, Mr. Adams has no scruple in en rolling his name in the third and highest class—a judgment that the intelligent part of the nation now or will in a few years, hearti y and gratefully endorse. It anybody wants specific information about “Prof.” Thwing’s spoliations we will furnish a list of references to victims on application at this office. The subject is hardly of suffi cient consequence to require a publication of details. We sincerely regret fV©m the thorough re spect we bear Dr. Carruthers, that he should have made the mistake of writing tholetter pub lished elsewhere. He is only lending his honj ored name to one who deserves no such sanc tion. His own great, noble and manly na ture incapacitates bim from comprehending such a character as Timing’s. We knew, as Dr. Carruthers cannot, how entirely justified we were in publishing the paragraph to whie he refers. We spoke feelingly because we have suffered, and we are fully prepared to maintain all statements which wc have made about this individual. The organizations known as the Reform Clubs arc making excellent progress in various parts of the State and are doing good service for total abstinence. At Skowhegan, Dr. Mann, of peculiar fame in the medicinal line, has turned from the evil ways of rum-drink ing and rum-selling to becomo the President of a reform club. The worldly wise scoff and predict that it is only‘a “seven days wonder, and that he and all like him will return to the bad old ways in a few months at most. All this may be true; but isn’t it a good thing for a man to reform for a few months ? Happily, in hundreds of remarkable instances this is not the case. They have kept the pledge a year, and to-day are the most effective men in this great reform. The public will come to tbeconclusion that losing a steamer, and thus causing the death of between four and five hundred persons, is not, after all, a very grave offence, since the Collector of Halifax closes his ponderous in* vestigation by simply revoking the certificate of Capt. Williams of the Atlantic, for the brief period of two years. If the testimony of Capt. Williams and all the others shows anything, and no one will say it does not, it is that the vessel struck the rocks in conse quence ot the ssness of that officer and his subordinates. The postal cards are to le issued on the first of May and can be obtained at that date from the postmasters. As already described they will be five and one-eighth inches in length and three inches in width, oue side containing the printed one cent stamp and ruled lines for the address, the other side be ing intended for the communication. The price of cards will be one cent each, whether in large or small quantities. James Gordon Bennett notcontent with being tbe champion yachtist of the country, and finding Livingstone, is now determined to secure that rather venerable gewgaw known as the crown of Denmark through a matrimo nial alliance with a charming young princess of that somewhat decayed house. It is to be hoped that James Gordon, Jr., will not bring the profession into disrepute through any of his whims in that line. The terrible railroad accident earlv Satur day morning on the Providence and Stoning ton Railroad, near the Richmond switch, in Rhode Island, combined all the possible perils of flood and fire, with all the other heart-rend ing details of a railroad casualty at headlong speed. The later accounts do not corroborate the first reports of the great loss of life, but at be9t it is bad enough. Portland, April I9th, 1873. To the Editor of the Portland Daily Press. I have reSd with surprise and sorrow ou your own account, your strictures in this morning’s paper on my respected and beloved friend and brother the Rev. E. P. Thwiug. He has as good a title to the prefix “Rev.” as any minister in this city. He was for many years the pastor of one of our city churches, and though for the, present simply a member of the Second Parish, is the acting pastor of one of the best and most ancient churches of the neighboring commonwealth of Massachusetts. I ,vas, of course, present at the devotional meeting of Thursday afternoon, though at my earnest request, the Rev. J. M. Palmer pre sided OP that occasion. I am therefore com petent to affirm with all confidence that Mr. Thwing did not use the words imputed to him “God forbid it”. He did not ou that occasion, nor has he to my knowledge on any other, represented himself as in any way officially connected with your paper. His credentials as a Christian, a minister, a pro fessor of elocution have all the necessary and customary attestations, and in all those ca pacities as well as in that ol a good and up right citizen, he has the entire confidence and sincere respect of all who know him. The circle of his intimate friends in this city em braces very many of all denominations, whose surprise and sorrow (on your own account) were doubtless as great as my own. Yours respectfully, J. J. Carrutiiers. Highly Complimentary.- The Rutland Herald tell3 the following pleasing story of Miss Cary’s amiability: Miss Annie R. Car}-, of the Strakosli concert troupe, whose indisposition ou her recent visit to Rutland, was so much regretted by her many admirers here, was a warm personaffriend ana schoolmate of Mrs. Charles H. Sheldon of West Rutland. The friends of Miss Caiy here relate the following pleasing incident, which illus trates the characteristic generosity and mag nanimity of the talented prirna donna. Dur ing, or at the close of a concert given by Miss Cary and others in Poultney some time ago, the attention of the audience and performers was directed toward the entrance way to the hall from whence the martial strains of “Tramp, tramp, tramp,” were heard to proceed in sweet and melodious tones. The unusual occurrence interested all, and Miss Cary, leaving the stage, promptly made her way to the door where stood the impromptu vocalist, a little girl meanly clad, who readily accepted the proffered hand of Miss Cary, who led her to and back upon the stage. Here the little one sang several melodics to the graceful accompaniment of the gifted song stress, after which, taking a gentleman’s high hat tor a contribution box, Miss Cary passed quietly through the admiring audience, collect ing a nice donation for her novel protege. We believe this really pleasing, truthful and highly romantic incident was never published, and as evidence of the admirable self-po-.session, char acteristic beneficence and goocness of heart of one of America’s sweetest artists has no parallel in the annals of verity. Topsham Finances.—For several years past there have been rumors afloat respecting the management of the financial affairs of the town of Topsham from March 4th 1861 to March 25th 1867. At the town meeting in 1870 Messrs. Isaac P. Tebbetts, Win. Dennett and Charles E Scribner were chosen to make a full investigation, with the aid of an account ant, of all the papers and transactions of the official for that period. Mr. S. E. Libby of this city, was employed as accountant aud a report of the investigation is just printed. During the war period Mr. H. P. Mallett, acting as treasurer of the board of selectmen, received and disbursed the greater part of the money. The amount received during that period as shown by the books was $50,439.23, and the amount disbursed was $47,180.07, leaving $3, 258.26 unaccounted for. The committee report irregularities in the management of the town affairs The town voted to instruct the com mittee and town agent to commence a suit against the finaucial agent during that period. Where the Modocs Learned Treachery. A writer in the New York Times, who was with Gen. Crook in the Modoc region a few years ago, says: “I have no sympathy for Capt. Jack and his associate murderers, and the fiat for their ex termination has my support; but it is none tile less true the savage could very properly say to that white man, in this case, with tenfold more truthfulness than did Shylock: ‘The rilliany you teach me, I will profit by.’ For the verv commencement of this Modoc war was a deed of treachery, as black as that which decoyed to his death the brave aud noble soldier and the excellent minister of peace who fell by his side. Cover it as we may, it is none the lens true that some years ago a Captain Wright of the United rStatcs army, did invite a party of Modocs to a feast aud then treach erously murdered them, when they were as powerless to defend themselves as were the peace commissioners in the lava beds.” Tli alluding to the performance of the clergy in this city last Thursday, we have uothing but commendation and high praise for those able aud truly Christian gentlemen who coufiued themselves to their legitimate and very proper duties, as in the caso of the Kov. Drs. Carruth ers and Hill, and Messrs. Wright and Hincks. But during the evening of that day a conventi cle was holden, which had for its object an altogether different purpose. That purpose ap pears to have been the unqualified ceusure aud denouncing of all people and institutions not fully in accord with tho peculiar tenctsof its members. It is hut just to say, however, that, n nli hut a single exception, the most offensive anu stupid of the tirades againstanothcr member • we clerical profession, differing from them — came from individuals no longer -rL the clergy of any denomination. *nrnnJ!sLC0ID?M!ut wc ha, e to tnake upon the t of.ttris remarkable meeting is tlia 1 tin,, U1v1?,,u t*ns advanced age of civiliza tellbran? enllShtened views to find such unin wmigeut action aud conduct in life.—Sunday One of Philadelphia’s present aggravations is had veal, and there is much ill-health con sc quent tbercon.

The timo of his short Q , however,—made at tho request of tho st nool board—was thoroughly economized, and a Dying visit made, yesterday, to all our school buildings and most of our schools, with which lie was as much pleased as the committee seem to be with him. It is feared that Portland will not let mm go under any consideration, even if he can be made willing to give up liis pleasant home; hut the board can hardly do better than make a strong effort, and lie may rest assured of a hearty welcome to Springfield, if he will coine._ News and Other Items.

Mrs. Myra Bradwell bus been dented the right to practice law in Illinois, although it was admitted that she was qualified for the privi lege.

To the Machias Republican.—Gents:—As Dr, Urann, of Boston, is about visiting your place, and a stranger in these i»arts, I know very well, like most physicians traveling, he will be looked upon with sus Eicion, particularly as his cures look miraculous. I ad 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 drees or undress ray solf, or get oft the bed without help.

Thousands of certificates can be presented if nec essary, but if the following are not sufficient to sat isfy the most s.optical, 10,000 additional ones would be useless. A few words on Rheumatism ! OR HOW I BECAME ENGAGED IN THE UNIVERSITY MEDICINES. Some eight years ago, (alter ieturning from tho sickly climate of Southern China) I was attacked with Rheumatism, and for four years I was unable to dress myself and most of the time, my suffering was so great that I would have given all I possesed or the wealth of the world if I had it, to bo relieved from my sufleitogs. I tried all remedies 1 knew or could hear of but received no benefit. I had about given up in despair when I received one of the University books. I thought it a humbug at first, but after a careful perusal it looked so reasonable, like a drown ing man catching to a straw, I sent for tho medicine, and in one week after I commenced taking it I lolt some relief. Ifa one mouth I could move about with ease, and at the end of two months I was perfectly curoii. I tried the medicine on several others af flicted with Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Dropsy. &c.t with the same beneficial effect. After testing the medi cine to my satislaction and finding it far superior to any other medicine for all chronic diseases, 1 obtain ed the general agency for the State of Maine and New Brunswick, and moved to Portland some three years ago. Aud of the thousands of patients I have treated I have met with almost universal success. I do not expect to cure all, and when I see a patient * that I think I cannot cure I tell them so, for above all other abominations there is none greater than to deceive and rob tho sick. As there are thousands suffering with rheumatism I wish to impress the minds of such to not despair; their case is cur able. When I can see the patient and apply tho direct Medicator, ; cau relieve the pain in a lew min utes, and by taking the U Diversity Medicines. If not cured in a month there will bo great relief, and it must be a very stubborn case that l cannot cure in two months. Why I dwell so much on Rheumatism I know too well how to sympathize with those that, are its victims, and I know they can be cured. If the above statement with the following certificates is not enough to sufficiently satisfy those that aro suf fering with it, God help them. Certificates of Cores. This is to certify that I had been for a long time afflicted with Rheumatism. For nine months I was under medical treatment without receiving benefit. At length I became nearly helpless, and my suffer ings iniense. In this dreadful condition I sent for Dr. Staples, General Agent for the New York Univer sity Medicines. In ten minutes after applying the Acopuncturatur I was able to dress. And in six days I walked from my bouse on South Street, to Dr. Sta ples’ office, 250 Congress Street, and I have boen abio to attend to my business ever since. L. V. WHALEN, Barber. Portland, April 16.1873. 133 Foro Street. After suffering a yeai with Sciatic Rheumatism and most of the time unable to move without great pain, all tho time being under the best medical treatment I could find, I called on Dr. S aplcs’ Agent for the University Medicines, and in four weeks I was free from the above disc .sc, and have been well up to the present time. JAMES A. MAYBERRY, Portland. April 15, 1873. Casco, Me. This is to certify that I have been afflicted with the inflammatory rheumatism for over twenty years. I have employed most of the best physicians* in Port land, and paid hundreds of dollars for medicine with out any j>ormancnt euro. Two years ago last March I was taken with Rheumatic fever; for five week? I was unablo to turn in bed or foed myself, my left arm and hand was reduced to nearly* half the size of my right one, and was unable to lift two pound’s weight until last July, when I saw the effect of tho University Medicines on tho daughter of Capt. Win. Thorndike. I called on Dr. Staples and stated my case. He said he could cure it. I commenced taking the medicine with the acapuncturation. Before! had takcu four bottlos I considered myself moro free from palu than I have been for twonty year? up to this time. I have not had a relapse. 1 consider it to be t he only suro medicine for tho abovo complaint. WILLIAM. J. SMITH, late firm of Pearson & Smith. I have been troubled, more or less, for five rears, with inflammatory rheumatism. For the last six months I have suffered beyond description. My limbs were badly swollen ana inflamed; it was with great pain and difficulty that I could movo. My case was well known by thousands of citizens in Portland. I am to-day a well man, and I was cured by the University Medicine, and Acapuncturation. CAPT. W. S. PENNELL, 18 Grey St* Tills may certify that I had been suffering with the “Rheumatism” for fivo months, and at that time it seized my right liip and leg, down to the foot. This the physicians called “Sciatic.” I tried many kinds of nighly recommended medicines wliloh I took for the blood. Still I got no relief lor seven months more, all the timo doing my best, with as ] good advisers as wo have in our city. Finally. I called at the New York University Branch, and tno proprietor said he could help help me. So I com menced on his medicine, and in four weeks I thought I felt relief, and in eight weeks I was able to leavt my cane at home and have been well up to this ti me three months have passed.

I have been troubled with Scrofula all my lifetime, and Neuralgia in tho head seven years and have con sulted good physicians from Maine to New York without any benefit whatever. I have taken six bottles of tne Cancer Plant and one and one-half of the Neuralgia Elixir, and a little of some other kinds and I now feel better than I ever was before in my life. I cannot say with Mr. Munsey, that l feel twenty years younger, being only twenty-eight, bnt can say I never felt so young to my knowledge in my life. 1 think tho worth of the Medicine cannot bo esti mated In words or money.
