The fourth anuual report of the Massachu setos Board of Health makes a book of five hundred pages and contains, of course, a great amount of information both curious and valuable. In the report the matter of drainage and j sewerage in connection with the health of | cities and towns is largely noticed. Ween-; dorse the idea that the intelligent enforce- : mentof sanitary regulations will ward off half the fevers, consumptions, etc.; and the en lightenment of the people by such informa tion as this volume contains will greatly les sen disease. In this connection the pollution of steam and the water supplies of towns arc noticed, opening up a vast question in con nection with the subject of drainage for the cousidor. iiou of the future. One of the most important topics considcr. «d was that treated by P. Emery Aldrich, Esq., a member of the board, relative to tbe use and abuse of intoxicating liquors, giving a great deal of evidence gathered from corres pondents and authentic sources. He takes issue with the conclusion of a report of the chairman of the board, Mr. Bowditcb, last year, that the permission to sell light ales, beer and wine would promote temperance in New England. The result of bis inquiry is that beer shops cause and increase intemper ance, and that their influence is bad and only bad. Tbe use of light wines results in the habit of using stronger and more dangerous stimulants. In California the abundance and cheapness of wines have fearfully increased the amount of intemperance. Speaking of the Swede3, he says the nation rose and fell, grew prosperous or degraded, as tho rulers restrained or permitted the manufacture and salcTif that which all along its history has seemed to be the uation’s greatest curse. It is the testimony of a great number of official persons in Massachusetts that the sale of ale and beer increases crime. One of tbe papers of the greatest interest is by Dr. George Derby, tbe secretary, on the food of the people of Massachusetts. Want of proper food is one of the chief causes of consumption. He presents a mass of an swers of correspondents to his circulars, ask ing about the sort and quality of food in use, tho cooking, etc. The result is not very en couraging. Dyspepsia is prevalent in some communitiei on account oi bad food and the inordinate use of tea and coffee. The mak ing of good bread is rare, it is a lost art. There is a great consumption of the abomina ble pie and cakes. Pies are eaten twice a day by most people in Massachusetts above the age of five, and if a lunch is called for, it is generally pie. ^ouiury uaxers aistriDUte more pies than loaves of bread. Tlie-average Massachusetts pie (used as a 6taple of food and not as an addition to a. d'uner) is made of flour, water and salt, mixed with “short ening,” which consists of the cheapest fat, hog’s lard or the lowest grade ot butter, to which is often added carbonate of soda. This paste encloses chopped meat, seasoned with hog's fat and spices, the meat, like the but ter, being of the poorest kind, such as could not be eaten in any other form except sausa ges ;and the spices cover the taste of the meat; or some sort of fruit is used to fill the flaps of indigestible dough. Another fruitful source of disease it the “bolting” of the food. The average time devoted to each meal by the peo ple of the state does r.ot exceed twelve to fif teen minutes. A great quantity of air 13 swal lowed in eating in haste. The excessive use of water at meals is another great cause of dyspepsia, the food is unduly dilute! and the stomach is chilled. “Washing down” the food with frequent draughts of water is one of the most pernicious habits, and it it oniy a habit. These are only a few of the topics treated of in the large volume; and what is rather nuusuai the matters are all of the highest importance and the most of the dangers point ed out may Ire remedied by the people them selves. Indeed, the few matters to which we have(calledattention above will afford ample ground to begin the renewal ot their civiliza tion. The Maine Pocltey Association are already taking measures to secure a large ex hibition in the city next January. It is now a long distance away, but the managers in this city and elsewhere are already making arrangements for large special premiums, and corresponding for the purpose of securing one of the best exhibitions of fowls, not only ever held in Maine, but in New England. The breeding of choice and fancy varieties of fowls is more largely carried on i than any of our people have any idea of; while the general business of raising poultry, eggs, etc., lias in creased at a rate the past five years that will surprise those who consider themselves the best informed. Indeed, it has become a leading pursuit among the smaller farmers, and promises to be one of first importance. In view of these facts the organization of the State Association is timely and in the hands of the energetic gentlemen who represent it, will be sure to give this rising branch of in dustry a new impetus. We aro assured by the officers who are taking direction of the matter here, that they meet a very cordial cooperation Evidently Michael Cunningham of Porta mouth, N. Q , is not in full standing in his church since he takes some pleasure iu stat ing that he severely cowliided the Rev. Can on Walsh the pastor of the Catholic church, for repeatedly using insulting language to ward and cursing at bis family. If the pastor so far forgot himself as to insult his family Michael is to be censured for waiting for any repetition before he applied that powerful corrective. We are, however) half inclined to believe that the Rev. Canon was simply sharply reprimanding Michael and his house hold for improprieties of worldly conduct and dereliction in spiritual duties. We are the more inclined to this conclusion because Mr. Cunningham has sent us a printed note, net couched iu meek and lowly language. Worthless western corporation stocks frequently come to light as in the case of the Ocean National Bank of New York, when several thousand dollars worth of such bonds, probably received as collaterals, were sold for five per cent, of their face. This fact is more noticeable because there arc doubtless many of like worthless bonds throughout the cast, and if they don’t turn up when least expect ed, our people will be fortunate. It may be that a large part of the Louis iana people don’t like the Kellogg govern ment; but the statement that $254 000 of taxes have been collided during the first quarter of this year against $133,000 collect ed during the same period last year is not to be taken as an indication that the people of that State will not submit to the rule of Gov. Kellogg. __ _ That Consular Demand. To the Editor of the Press: From current newspaper paragraphs, I see that Censul Bcaubovcber, has asked, or will ask the State of Maine to refund the money paid out by himself, for the relief, while there and subsequent passage home, of a part o that ill-fated fAdams Joppa Colony. Hisf <:blil,” amounts to $3600. Maine is called upon to settle this demand, because the majority of the Colonists, were from Maine. Now, as an ex-member of that , celebrated oriental humbug, possessing a fa- i miliar knowledge of its details, I wish—before ( any payment of such claim is mdde-to make a statement of facts, relative to the case, for the instruction ami benefit of those “whom it may concern..’’ The tacts arc these. Before 011/emigration to Palestine, we appointed Vice-Consul Loenthal, (of Joppa, a German Jew) as our agent, to purchase certain lands and other property, for us in the vicinity of j„_a, as it could be done in that manner, much cheaper than to purchase it ourselves after wc should arrive there. We forwarded the necessary funds to do so. lie procured the property from the ignorant natives, by fraud, bribery and intimidation. Then mak ing out false vouchers to us we wore helpless ly compelled to acceed to his extortionate de mand. We were successfully “jewed.” This swindling transaction was brought before Consul Beauboucher, at Joppa tor adjust ment, when the unscrupulous vilhany o. Loenthai ivas fairly unmasked. Yet Ut-auu.- i cher shielded him in this unmitigated swin dle and he was let off without refunding ally of Ihe money he had cheated us ou» of. We then entered complaint to the Department of State at Washington against both of them, petitioning for their removal. Thus a quar rel was inaugurated he'tween the colonists pouring their grievances into the ear of the Secretary ot State and the Consuls replying in self-vindication. In addition to this misfor tuneintcrual difficulties presented themselves. Some were losing faitli in the enterprise, and were getting discouraged and wished to get home. So they “seceded” and joined the Consular faction; the Consuls using such names with theirs to the State Department against the rest of the Colony. Now, if Beauboucher expended any money at all, in the interest of the Colony, lie cer tainly gave it to those few who joined his party, and that too rather for political pur poses, than auy charitable design. I claim that altogether, he did not pay out $500 in all that he ever paid to the Colony, or any part of it, in any manner, directly or indi rectly. So if the State of Maine has airy money to pay to the savior of their colonists, let her pay it to the estate of the late large hearted, philanthropic Moses S. Beach, for mer editor of the N. Y. Sun. He was the man wiio rescued the Maine colonists not Beauboucher of Jerusalem, nor Johnson of Beyruit. Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) thus correctly alludes to this fact in his “Innocents Abroad” (page 014). It was an unselfish act of benevolence; it was done without ostenta tion, and has never been mentioned in any newspaper I think. Therefore it is refresh ing to learn now that another man has re ceived all the credit ot this rescue of the colo nists. Such is life.” Although I never receive 1 the benefits of his kind donat.on, yet the occasion that calls forth this article, is a happy and appropriate, though I confess a somewhat tardy one—in behalf of those colonists, to publicly acknowl edge our lasting indebtedness to—and heart felt appreciation of the sympathetic kindness of the late Moses S. Beach, whose Samaritan like compassion on a helpless people, found substantial expression, in the form of a check for $1500, which enabled some forty members of that ill-starred colony to reach their homes in America again. “Honor, to whom honor is due.” So if $1500 would send forty hack, how is it that some six or eight persons at most, use up some $3800 in getting back? In view of the foregoing circumstances and facts, I respectfully suggest that before such claim be allowed and paid, on the part of the State of Maine that due examinali >n be made ot its merits. K. F. E. Letter from Bangor. Exit 8n«ir; Eater .Kud—Tfaoce wager* net tled— The Shore line defeat— Manufact uring zeal droopeth. Bangor, April 21t 1872. To the Editor of the Press: The rains of Saturday and to-day have transformed our frost-bouud streets into lakes of soft mud, making driving difficult aud un comfortable; outside the city it is worse yet, the roads being almost impassable. In the city the snow has generally disappeared, showing only iu spots, and gardens and ter races with a southern exposure are hegiuning to look green; elsewhere to the north and east, the fields are covered with an unbroken sheet of snow. Sunday morning the ice went out of the Penobscot river without damage, and the nu merous hats aud cigars waged on the date of this event vyere declared to the winners. This morning the Sanford steamer, the first vessel of the'season, reached Bangor, and, at the usualjhour, started on her regular trip to Boston. The season for navigation is fairly inaugurated, and business men are beginning to look jocund once more. To day, was submitted to the people the proposition to subscribe §150,000 to the Ban gor and Calais Shore Line Itailroad Company, issuing therefor the bonds of the City payable in 30 years from their date, with interest at 6 per cent, per annum: §100,000 to he paid on the completion and equipment of the road lrorn Bangor to Ellsworth, aud $50,000 when completed au 1 equipped to Macliias village. The subject had been well agitated, and most of our capitalists and business men were strongly in favor of tbe measure, but the sen timent outside the city was against it, and it failed to get a two-thirds vote, the vote stand ing, at the close of the polls, 1,118 in favor of, to 749 against the proposed subscription. This may be considered as settling the ques tion of aid to the Shore Line, at least until the next annual election. As the spring trade opens the subject of in troducing manufactures is less talked off, and it seems quite likely that after all, the propos ed dam at Treats’ Falls will not be completed this season. A correspondent has been very ably writing up tbe matter in a series of arti cles to the Whig, but I fear even his indis putable arguments will fail to start the man ufactures, until parties from abroad improve the opportunity and reap the profit. P. A Winter Day in April. To the Editor of the Portland Press: We havo had a hard,long winter and the end is not yet. The crows, like the “Mayflower” pilgrims, had got tired of a shelflshj diet on the coast, and sought the interior for a change, but found the ground covered deep with snow; not a grub nor a frog coaid be got, nothing hut a few shriveled apples left on the trees, to sub sist on. They are brave birds not easily dis couraged. Like William of Normandy, when he landed at Hastings,|they came to stay, so they come round the farm houses and cry “corn.” Now l think the bounty should be given to the live crows, instead of for the dead heads. The insects destroyed more than compensate for the young corn pulled up by them; this is easily prevented by soaking the seed in salpctre or tar water. We havo fed a whole colony of them for a month. The blue jays, who never leave, insist on taking their rations with the .rows, and both have become very tame. Jim crow wears a coat of priestly cut and ;olor, and always maintains a grave demeanor. The jays are gay, in blue and white, with wings shaded in black, a spike on their helmet like a Prussian soldier, and a black throat strap to hold it on. Our coffee often gets cold while we are watching these birds at their breakfast. A month ago the almanac said “spring begins” but we couldn’t see it. Last week we bad be come hopeful, but to-day came a driving} snow storm, “All winter drives along the darkened air;” and the hill tops that had struggled through their winter covering, are again hid under the snow as in mid winter. Our hope now is in a warm June, which will probably thaw us out. Tho times are out of joint—the weather docs not tally with the calendar. For two separate mow storms this winter we have had frequent Bashes of lighting with thunder that would be creditable to July, and on Monday last, rain fell continually through the day, with the wind sharp northwest. Will the weather man at Washington please explajji, and oblige, Windham, April 18. q Kens and Other Items. Gen. F. P. Banks will deliver the oration at Waltham, Mass., on Decoration Day. Hon. John T.

A St. Louis man applied far a divorco on the 'round that his wife throw a butcher kuife at lim, but she proved much worse things against lim, and his suit was thrown out. The net revenue of Few York Stale from tho Syracuse salt works in 1872 was $33,991.78, and tlio caual tolls which were paid to the State al so amounted to a considerable smn for tho year. The reason has been at last discovered why Virginia prpposc3 to jrat up Jubal Early as candidate for governor; it is because he ruus so well.

All kinds of operations w ere jierformed ©n my eyes, and all to no good results. Finally the disoase prin cipally settled in my body, limbs and feet, uLd at times'in an aggravated way. Last summer I was, from some cause, weak in my spine and kidneys, and it was at times very hard to retain the urine. Seeing your advertisement in the Commercial, I bought a bottle ot VEGETINE, and commenced using according to directions. In two or three days I obtained great reliel. After using' four or live bottles I noticed it had a wonderful effect on the rough i-ealv blotches on my body and legs. I still used VEGETINE, and the humorous sores one after another disappeared until they were ail gone, and I attribute the cure of the two diseases to VEGETINE and nothiug else. If I am ever affected with anything of the kind again, I snail try VEGETINE as the only reliable remedy. Once more accept my thanks, and believe mo t be, \ ery respectfully, AUSTIN F. PARROTT.
