The First Baptist church entered upon the experiment of freo sittings Sunday, it is hoped aud believed that it will be a success. The family of tho late F. O. Libby are re storing their mansion in Congress Square, sub stantially to its condition before the fire. The workmen found two feet of ice in the cham bers. Butterflies put iu an appearance yesterday. It really looks as though we had got most through winter. The advent of the street sprinklers was ob served with appropriate, ceremonies yesterday. John I1. Thomas has sold his yacht, the “Whisper” to parties in this city. The sermon delivered by tho Rev. Mr. Uineks at State street church Sunday, was not, as might he inferred from our announcement, of a controversial character. Tho Boston trains mada no connection with the Maine Central yestetday, owing to tho failure of tho latter to arrange a time table corresponding to tho spring arrangements of the former roads. Yesterday was a glorious day. Doors were thrown open, and for the first time for months many buildings got a ventilation. One man,of sanguineous temperament, was hoard to ejacu late, “Isn’t this hot!” One of the large scows for the new mud-dig ger was launched yesterday. If the streets are to be sprinkled but once during a day, let it be at tho time when they are the most dusty. The Bev. Dr. Hill will deliver the annual ad dress before the Bible Society of Maiue, at the First Parish church, at their anniversary Sun day evening May 11th.

Another of cur merchants left the door of his store unlocked last night. Officer Merrill found the door unlocked. The Tonic. The Maine General Hospital Fair journal is to be called the Tonic, as a title with a medical flavor seems essential. It is to he under the editorial charge of Miss Mary S. Deering and Miss Marcia D. Bradbury, the bare mention of whose names is sufficient guaranty for the brightness and liveliness of the paper. It wil‘ contain eight pages, three of which will he filled with reading matter prepared specially for tho Tonic. We understand that gome of the most eminent and entertaining writers in the coun try will make contributions, and there will be a fall representation of the best talent of this city and vicinity. All the local interests and incidents of the Fair will be graphically writ ten up. This department will he under the spe- ! dal charge of Miss Bradbury, while Miss Deer ing will manage the general literary depart ment. Five pages wiil be devoted to advertise ments, and as the paper will be very largely sold both to our own citizens and to the crowds of strangers attending the Fair, it will afford a very desirable advertising medium. It will bo issued as an evening paper each day of the Fair. There will be also a number contaiuing announcements and other preliminary matters issued four days before the opening of the Fair and one number on the day after its close, mak ing ten numbers in all. We cordially commend this Charito-literary enterprise to the good graces of the public and congratulate the Fair managers en their happy selection of editors. A Thoughtful and Genebous Acr.—The operatives of the Farnsworth Woolen Manufac turing Co. at Lisbon, of which Messrs. Deeriug & Milliken of this city are agents, have given one day’s receipts to tho Maiue General Hospi tal. Tliis generous act cannot he too highly commended. Tho workmen giving the money will not probably directly reap any'of its bene fits, but they thoughtfully recognize the fact that scores of similar workmen are every day in want of just the kind of care that the Maine General Hospital is disposed to give, and they make this generous sacrifice in behalf of that class of men and women. They also recognize that the institution is just what its name indi cates, and will bo the asylum of the poor and suffering all over the State. The workmen of tho Farnsworth Company have set an example worthy of imitation. The .Second Parish.—The Annual Meet ing of this society occurred last evening. S. W.

Meeting of the Lrar!«in»«™ ! of the Council. Peter Campbell was elected ; President of tlie House of Delegates.

The not taxes and licenses for the year ending Juno on are §1,500,000. Of this §856,957 have been col lected. j The Governor urges that the appropriations . for the ensuing year be carefully scrutinized and kept within the revenues, and that the oc currence of deficiencies be prevented by more careful estimate of expenditures. The opera tions of the sinking commissioners have oeen highly satisfactory. Nearly all the floating debt of the late corporations of Georgetown and Washington in the levy court house have been paid. The funded debt of the District is now $9,010,891, and is gradually being reduced by purchases of a sinking fund.

Supreme Court Decisions. The Supreme Court ha# decided in case of Ripley’s administrator vs. Railway Passenger Insurance Co., of Hartford, that there can be no recovery of the amount of the policy, as the deceased was not at the time of his death ou a public or private conveyance, but after travel ling from Grand Haven to Dalton, Mich., was walking home after midnight and was waylaid aud beaten to death. Court also decided that the license tax impos ed by the city of Mobile on the Southern Ex press Co., is constitutional. The tax had been resisted on the ground that as the Company was engaged in the carrying business beyond the limits of the State it was unconstitutional as being in conflict with the provision of the constitution, which vests in Congress the pow er to' regulate commerce. The Court ruled in a case from New York that an officer of the Internal revenue making a seizure under authority of law, is not a trans gressor, and reverses the judgment against the Collector recovered on that form of auction. The Court held in the case of the Union Bank of New Oilcans for recovery of the balance of au account auterior to the war that Gen. Banks had no authority to order the debt of the Plaut er s Bank to bo paid over to the military au thorities, and that obedience to that order did not exonerate the Union Bank. The Court then adjourned to Thursday when it is expected to adjourn for the term. Justice Miller proposes to sail for Europe Saturday. Au Expedition.

A small requision is also to be made upon shareholders of the Farmers’ and Citizcus National Bauk of Brooklyn for the same purpose. The Atlantic National Bauk was examined ia February and October, 1872. The reports of tbe examiners show that tbo capital of tbe bank was seriously i mpaired. The Comptroller directed that no further dividends be declared, and accordingly no dividends were made during the year 1872. Bad debts to tlie amount of $32, 400 were charged off during the same year. Tlie defalcation is' supposed to have occurred from (he use. of special deposits and collaterals by the cashier.
