The Adams Oration. Mr. Adams’ oration on the death of Will iam H. So‘.ard embodies an interesting re view of the history of parties in this country for the past half century. On the principle that nothing but good should be spoken o the dead, its strain of unmixed eulogy mat pass unchallenged, but we confess our sur prise that a man commonly believed to bt so severely impartial in his judgments a; C harles Francis Adams, should have found no flaw iuthc diplomatic or executive record el the dcce; sod statesman. The truthful chronicler who writes the story of the Re bellion, will he obliged to admit that the con duet o' tha Trent affair was an inexcusable blunder throughout. No man had better op portunities for knowing this than he who he.d at tl.e time the post of Minister to Eng land. The obvious course of the government, dictated alike by the public safety, and inter na t on a! law was t > hare remanded the cap tives, Mason and Slidell, iDstantly to British jurisdiction. Had it been done promptly it would have been universally acquiesced in at home, and highly applauded abroad. It was a great opportunity to vindicate ourown inter pretation of the law of nations uninfluenced by menace or coercion. It was unwisely thrown away and as a consequence, the country was subjected to the deepest humilia tiou which It has ever been called upon to en dure. The despatch of Lord John Bussell, demanding the immediate restitution of the Rebel enemy, is one of the most peremptory and insolent state papers on record. It was discreditable to its author, but it helped to show in a clearer light the impolicy of the net which made such an imperious summons possible, and embittered the auti-anglican feeling of the whole American people. Mr. Adams passes lightly over Mr. Seward's complicity with Andrew Johnson’s apostasy. This will always constitute the darkest page n the biography of the ex-Sccretary. John son would have amounted to nothing, but for the countenance and encouragement ol his chief minister. His applause of the act ing President’s inflammatory sjjeech from the portico of the White House on the 22d of February, 1866—his consenting to dignify the fsmous swing “'round the circle” by his pres ence a few months later and his ostentatious break with the Republican party were meant to bolster up the waniug fortunes of his chief Fortunately the people, however true to their leaders while they pursue the straight path, will not follow them when they desert to the enemy and the elections of 1868, demonstra ted that the most eminent statesman of his wan unnhlf* to ftimmmd a pnrnnrtil,i guard when he turned Uis back on the great organization he had helped to create, an J of whose principles he had been,in earlier years, the fervid and eloquent champion. History repeats itself and what was true of Seward in 1800, was equally true oi Sumner in 1872. We mention these things in no spirit of disre spect to the memory of the departed states mau, but because in a candid review of an eventful public career, the lights and shades should be artistically blended to constitute a faithful picture. It would have been strange if there were no defects in a character so marked with good traits as that of the man who played so distinguished a role in Amcri can politics for thirty years. But we believe that future generations will honor him more for the masterly efforts he made to educate public opinion to light conceptions of duty, in reference to the greatest of all the issues of the century—the irrepressible conflict—to inspire them with sentiments of obedience to the “higher law,” than for his subsequent la in) rs, meritorious as they were, in the Depart ment of State. One of our minor Democratic exchanges In the interior re'ers to the Republican as the “salary steal party.” Had it been wise it would not have made this statement; for out of 1X3 Republicans in the House of Repre sentatives, 60, or 53.1 per cent., voted against the measure, and 53, oi 40.9 per cent., voted lor it, while of 84 Democrats voting on the question, 49, or 58.3 percent., voted for the steal, and 35, or 41.7 per cent, voted against it. In other words, had the Democrats voted against the disgraceful plunder scheme in the same ratio as did the Republicans, it would have been defeated, The law officers of the Crown in England, the highest authority and the last tribunal of appeal, decide that the provisions of the New Brunswick free school law, falls within the powers granted within its charter and it is, con sequently, not a subjectfor royal iuterfl’-. The question as to the Power • Brunswick government to \ , . was raised by the C*” enaC 8Uch*IaW and carried to t> of P™™;cc the deterw’ -e highest tribunal. Despite Syttr ..ncd opposition to the free school _ai in that province, the attendance of the public schools has an increase from over 33, 000 in 1871 to over 39,000 in 1872. The article from the Ellsworth American favoring the appointment of John A. Peters to the Judgeship, iu the vacancy soon to be made by the retirement of Judge Kent, is val uable as a tribute from Mr. Peters’ boyhood home to his personal fitnes3 for the place. Oi his professional qualifications no one can have the slightest doubt. The only objection made to him is that his habits and bearing have nol the dignity and sobriety which the positiot demands, and this article meets the objectior squarely from a good standpoint. Within a week or two, a shot has ueen nr h1 at the passenger train of the European £ North American Railway, near Oldtown, ani another at a train of the Maine Central, nea Gardiner. There is an evidence of depravitj in such acts—a sort of general enmity to tb< human xace—that wc are at a loss to under stand. __ In the Massachusetts Senate Saturday a bil authorizing the Boston & Maine aud Easterr Railroads to consolidate, was referred to thi Railroad Committee in concurience. Neithe of the corporations ask for the measure, bu a few parties interested think the measur would be liaudy property to have in case any thing should happen. The Massachusetts Legislature has beet tinkering the statutes of that commonwealtl since January 1st, and there arc no presen appearances of an immediate adjournment At five dollar* a day the rural member isn’t i hit anxious at the suggestions of the Bostor papers about planting time. The Massachusetts Legislature has passer a bill which authorizes the administration o oaths to witnesses in courts in that manuei which the person sworn rsgards a* most bind ing upon his conscience. This removes at old controversy that has from time to thru come up in the courts of Massachusetts. The Toronto Globe assumes that Sir IIu - Allan has failed to secure the aid he cxpccte in England, in consequence of which he hr virtually failed in his plan for the constnn tion of the Canadian Pacific Railway. ( course the Globe charges the present D< minion ministry with the responsibility oft! failure. It is estimated at tbe internal revenue burca that the tax collections under the new intenn revenue law will b0 increased fifty percent because of tbe impossibility of defrauding ll government out of its special taxes, owing t Jhe publicity which every manufacturer "at dealer is compelled to give his special tax r ceipt by keeping the same open to the view his trade. ! Sew York letter. ’ The ucv ci«r cborrer—**‘°**°{ *—• • ,„a.,T-roB,...rol!er «rccu-A. T. S.ew | nri. - New' York, April, 19 1873. At last we have a charter which, without ’ satisfying anybody,entirely embodies so many reformatory provisions as to be in the main acceptable to everybody. The retention of the obnoxious Commissioner of Police is ' atoned for by the preservation of Comptroller Green from the general sweep. Mr. Green has been the most conspicuous figure in the great campaign against the Ring during the • long battle which has finally culminated in its extirpation. He is the incarnation of re* I form. Always a democrat, his administra tion of the affairs of the Central Park, won for him the confidence and respect of good men of all parties, nis advent to the office of Comptroller as the successor of the fuga gacious Connolly, was the first effective step in the direction of a cure for our municipal grievances. Jt was brought about by the ju dicious management of Mr. Havemeyeraud Mr. Samuel J. Tilden, to whom Connolly ap pealed for counsel and succor when the awful revelations of peculation, forgery and fraud burst upon an astonished public in the sum mer of 1871. They insisted that he should surrender unconditionally, and place his functions in Mr. Green's hands as the nomi nal deputy, but actual head of the Finance Department. He had no alternative hut com ; pliance with this demand. This coup d'etat I frightened the Ring. Hall rode sixteen miles j on a Sunday to find Gen. McClellan and per j.suade bin to accept the Comptrollership. I Rut while McClellan hesitated the game was i lost. Mr. Green took possession of the office | and has held it ever since. Hall yielded at j last to public opinion, and appointed him as 1 Connolly’s successor. He has defended the : Treasury against all sorts of unjusk claims, | with matchless fidelity and ability. But in doing so he has incurred the hostility of vast numbers of persons whose plans he has thwarted. Tthese men have been constantly “seeking occasion against him.” They en deavored to influence a Republican Legisla ture to abet his removal on the score of his politics, and yet his bitterest opponents were democrats. The fact that lie has been scrup ulously impartial iu the execution of the du ties of his trust has alienated from him the support cf all that class of democratic parti sans, who regard the exchequer of the muni cipality as legitimate spoil. Fort.mately, the honest public sentiment which demanded Mr. Green’s retention has been respected by the Legislature, and his continuance in office will compensate for all the other defects of the charter. He holds the citadel which will prove an impregnable defense against the assaults of the numerous adventurers who spend their lives in devising ingenious plans for preying upon the moneys of the tax-payers. He is at this moment the most important official in New York. His power is immense. The title of his office symbolizes its prerogatives. Iu him rests the chief hope of a long suffering people that wise economy and strict accountability will characterize all the other departments of our local government, for the min who holds the purse strings can always exercise a po tent influence on those who surround him. Mr. Andrew H. Green is a bachelor not far from fifty years of age. He was educated to the profession of the law and commenced practice some twenty-five years ago, as the partner of Samuel J. Tilden. His first appear ance in the political field was in 1848 when he engaged with all the enthusiasm of youth in the democratic revolt which led to the nomination of Van Buren and Adams, and the defeat of Lewis Cass. He identified him self with the anti-slavery democracy known in this State as barn-burners, but returned ts the fold two years later in common with nearly all the rest of the gallant seceders from the party, which was then sowing the seeds of its destruction by a most abject sub serviency to the dictation of the southern oligarchy whose motto was “rule or ruin.” But in spite of his allegiance to his order, he never surrendered his individual opinions in regard to the sin of slavery and regretted the growing tendency of his party to lend itself to the perpetuation of that flagrant national wrong. When the grand project of the Central Park was conceived, he became prominently connected with it, and ever since as Comp trolle,) Treasurer and Commissioner thereof, has been the leading mind that directed and carried forward the improvements which have given to the people of this island that beautiful monument of the foresight and wis dom of its projectors. To him more than to any other citizen arc we indebted for the judi cious management, which made lhatmagnifi i cent enterprise an exception to the mal-ad ministration and waste which have been so. painfully conspicuous in all the other branch es of the municipal service. In 1870 the “Ring” took possession of the Central Park Commission and Mr. Green was virtually depos^, He’was nominally re tamed in tb* ^soani but without salary or in fluep'-',., Mr. Sweeney took the reins. The result was that expenditures of a most ex travagant character were authorized, and the debt of the Park increased with alarming rapidity. Mr. Green’s voice an l vote were always heard m protest against the prodigal ity which was eating out the substance of the people but he was powerless to prevent the mischief he denounced. Between him and Sweeney, and the creatures of the Ring there could be nothing but inharmony. He op posed them because they were unfaithful to the public interest, they hated him because they could not use him. But t’me at last “sets allthings even.” After an unchecked reign of some eighteen months, Sweeney and his confederates came to grief, and Mr. Green, associated with Mr. Stetbens, Mr. Church and Mr. Olmslead addressed h’msclf to the task, of bringing order out of chaos, re storing them to their former condition, stop ping works of doubtlul utility and enormous cost and saving a plundered community from c..^ . ! From this congenial sphere of duty he was ! called to the Finance Department. He lound j It in a state of utter demoralization. Loaded • ; down with debt, crowds of creditors clamor i ing at its doors, the city credit impaired, the employees of his predecessor around him, the . Mayor hostile, and all the other Departments ready to conspire against him, it demanded the force of a Hercules to bring such a mass ofcoufusion and disorder into shape. Mr. Green’s highest praise is that he proved ' equal to the emergency. With cool patience and unwearied industry he set about provid ing means for carrying on the government, ! investigating the multitudes of claims that ■ were pressiug upon him, abolishing sinecures, repairing leaks in all directions and curtailing expenditures to the lowest point consistent l with the welfare of the city. This is the man, whom the new char ter has (irmly established iu his place. He ■ whom the King would have crucified has be come the chief head of the corner. It is not merely a personal triumph, but it is a tri umph ofthe people, a solid gain to the tax payers, an earnest of better things to come, a sign o‘ promise in which every unselfish and law abiding citizen will heartily rejoice. I am sure your readers will be glad to know that Mr. A. T. Stewart who has been serious ly ill for four weeks, and for a few days dan gerously so, is rapidly recovering and will be out in a day or two. Mr. Stewart passed the age of seventy in August last, but he looks s fifteen years younger. He is a man of sueu excellent habits and obeys hygienic laws so rigidly that he is likely to illustrate the 1 longevity for which his race is celebrated, rie j comes from the North of Ireland and it h long been noticeable that immigrants ,r0 that part of the world attain to exceptionally old age. It is within a few months of half a h ?ince this remarkable man opened a mo lace and trimming store on Broadway, , 0 a stones throw of his present imposing wnoie tale establishment. He has prospered so mar velously that his fortune is rather over t a uuderfifty millions of dollars. Ho is a very 1 unpietentious, unostentatious gentleman With all his possessions in houses and lands, ’ his two meat palaces full of merchandise in 6 New York, his branches In Manchester, Pans, 0 Lyons and Berlin, he never seems pressed d for time and finds leisure enough to give wel come audience to friends, and to take an in >f terest in affairs outside of his business. He drives down to his retail stoic between niue and „en in the moming-spends an hour or two there, looking into details with the prac wlinWi°f a master—proceeds thence to his ?sal® Yar.ehouse an<i remains there till about Co clock when his coupe appears and bears him to his home. Being an educated gentleman, he has a taste for books and pict ures. Occasionally he beguiles an hour at the theatre. He is the owner of Niblo s and the Fifth Avenue theatres and has a private box in each. It is only when one contem plates the extraordinary success of this quiet courteous gentleman, that he realizes that beneath such a plain and simple exterior lies concealed the power which has. made him the greatest merchant of his adoptejManch^ Who Shall be the Judge, Our Governor has upon him the important responsibility of appointing a Judge of the Supreme Court whose service will begin when Judge Kent’s term expires in May. It is a matter of no small moment. Not many things are more important to the people of Mvne than that its highest Court be kept pure and elevated iu the character of the men who constitute it. Judge Kent whose second term is about running out, htis been an honor and ornament to the bench. There are few men in the State who are his peers in all the essentials that go to make a good Judge. But lie is, while yet in full faculty, more than sev enty years of age, and both lie and his friends have expected that at the end of his term a successor would be appointed. Unde" these circumstances there has been m the Eastern part of the State, nearly a complete centreing of public sentiment upon Hon. John A. Peters, as the fittest man for the place soon to be vacant. Not only law yers, but business men and propeity-holders who appreciate a clear head and an" upright life join in this seutiment and wherever it has been manifested the movement has been voluntary. Mr. Peters is not seeking the place. To this unanimity in this part of the State must be added the voice of a very large portion of the legal profession in other sec tions, in some counties this expression com ing from mote than a majority. The feeling has been strong that the chance to secure suen a man for our highest Court, does not offer ev ery year, and that it should be gladly seized But we have regretted to see in some in stances, in tne press of this State, a disposi tion to question the wisdom of Mr. Peters’ appointment to so important a position, and we are moved thereby to say a few words. We can speak with some authority, because Ells worth is Mr. Peters’ native town, where for more than half a century he and his family have been known root and branch. Man and hoy, Mr. Peters has been seen here in his in comings and out-goings, during his entire life. He was here at school, and returned after his honorable college graduation to study his pro fession, and while his home has been in Ban gor for the last twenty-five years he has con tinually been in the practice of law in this comity and in business, politics and social in tercourse, has kept up an intimate relation with our people. In that time we have seen him as the admirable and successful lawyer whose merit has been as plain with judges as with juries and who has yet scrupulously maintained the high tone aim dignity of the profession. He has entangled no man use lessly in law, he has stirred up no strife. With this he has been a straightforward and trust worthy business man and citizen, with a vital and animating integrity of character that he inherits from his father, and a faithfulness in performing every duty laid at his door, that we wish more men would emulate. His do mestic and social life has been such that where he is best known he is both best respected and best loved. All classes and professions will bear us out in this. In this whole region where Mr. Peters’ life has been open as day, bar and bench, clergymen and laymen, the most .sober and temperate bear willing testi mony to the truth of what we say. We speak with a certain fervor for we know of what we speak. What more is wanted ? If it is not of such timber that good judges are made then we have much to learn as to high judi cial tribunals. PorliQtn ltqc oltirntra elirttrn oti bavnnof desire ts do that which is be3t for the State that has three times elected him to its highest office He has sought to keep himself above narrowness and prejudice in his appointments. We believe he will do so now. There are no perfect men, but this we know, that neither Gov. Perham, nor any oiher Governor of Maine, since we have known anything of Ju dicial appointments has selected any "man for Supreme Court of whom more good tilings and fewer bad things can be said than can be truly said of Mr. Peters. Let us have him for Judge.—Ellsworth American. Fryebubo fob tee Maine General Hos pital.—The citizens of Fryeburg Village met Saturday eveniug to consider what steps, had best be taken to raise funds for thu Hospital Fair. There seemd to bo a determination to go forward in assisting this noble undertaking. Maj. D. R. Hastings nominated the following committee, who wiU moet again next Saturday evening to perfect their organization and com mence active work: Mrs. T. C. Shirley, Mrs. John Ward, Mrs. XX L.

Mr. Sewall preached a “short sermon” in the interest of the Hospital, heartily commend ing i* his church, the community and town this most Christian and beneficent enterprise. A deep interest has already shown itself among our citizens for the success of the Fair.

Cirr,zr..v. A Biddefordian Incident.—S<>iyB . saloon on Main street. Time, 7 l-'i p. m Sat urday. A mere boy walks up to tmo ’oar’’and with the air of an old soaker, oalls for’“rum straight.” The bar tender brjDga on a tlire0 gallou Jug and the poison is 'jeaH out. The iue is then carefully returned L, its p|ace at a buck entrance. The boy tak,3 note of thi and “goes for it.” Tins the "m,kindest cut of P ^tain street, closely pursu edby the knight of the cork-screw, who, is bareheaded and l jlns shirt sleeves. At Wash ington street bo'.h are making good time, hut the bar tender gaiuing, the boy drops the jug on the pavement, and three gallons of “wet damnation ’ is spilled forever. The crowd on the sidewalk laugh; the bar tender screams “stop thief;” and a big policeman takes the boy under his wing, but “yer know how ’tis yourself; ’ the boy is released as the mixer of cordials says “he’aintdonenothing.” The bar-tender's face was a long as tho Isthmus of Panama when the jug dropped. A inotly crowd gathered at the spot of the departed spin ts, and mourned that this was thus; they looked as if they’d lost their earthly friend. The remains of the jag were picked up by somebody, and a druggist in the vicinity of the disaster sold a bottle of Spaulding’s glue shortly afterwards. —Times. _ A Terrible Fire.—The Washington (N C.) Star of the 11th inst., reports that a fire is rag ing all along theliacof the Wilmington, Co ' lumbia and Augusta Railway from three miles IDejona x air lsiuti to Jb lemington. Forests have been swept over, fences dostroroyed, and ' in some instances houses have been burned. There has been great destruction among the turpentine farms, and the loss to this industry wil 1 he heavy. The fire, at the date the paper was published, was raging with unabated fury, extending back into the country as far as twenty miles, and bearing rapidly down upon the Charlotte road. The area thus far covered ljy it is from twenty-five to thirty miles. The fire originated through the culpable carelessness of the railroad company, which suffered a loco motive which had loet its smokestack, to run over that section of the road, belching out showers of sparks and cinders through the dry woods. The people are very indignant and talk of suing the road to recover their losses. Miss Annie B. Starbird. — The Boston Journal says Miss Annie B. Starbird, “the tal ented vocalist, who recently sang at one of Miss Mehlig’s concerts with most brilliant suc cess, and who recently returned from a three years’ sojourn in Italy, where, after studying under the best teachers, she won decided tri umphs both in opera and on the concert stage, has organized a fine concert troupe for a spring and summer campaign. Besides an admirable vocal quartette, consisting of Miss Starbird, so prano; Miss Alice Fairman, contralto; Mr. Nelson Varley, tenor, and Mr. Sprague, basso, it includes Miss Theresc Hebe, the violinist. The party will leave the city about the 20 th of next month. Artillery School.—Gen.

Fessenden and William Everett, who entered the Military ac ademy from Maine.

It locks up the 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 are tlie causes of two-thinis of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain iu the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes 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 toms usually originate irom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons &o affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases bo suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Sclienck’s Pulmonic Syrup ia an expectorant which docs not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck’s Seaweed tonic diss v the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto ach, digests easily, nourishes the system, and creat a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient is a billious habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.
