TlrlE PRESS. WEDNESDAY M0BX1XU, APRIL 30, ’73. ~ A Bloody Affair. The despatches from the Modoc country given elsewhere, Indicate that our troops have met with a bloody repulse that can be regarded little better thau causeless slaughter The accounts are very unsatisfactory, but there is enough to indicate that a small body was led by the Indians into an ambush and there massacred. The Case of Messrs. Phelps, Dodge & Co. There never has been an alleged or real at. j tempt to defraud the Government of tariffs due by law that has caused so much comment as the case against Messrs. Phelps, Dodge & Co. of New York which was compromised a few weeks since by the payment of $271,017. 23, No house in the country was more wide ly or favorably known. Few, if any, have done so much business in the past decade. In addition to this, the gentlemen comprising the firm, arc widely known and respected as high minded, patriotic and every way reliable citizens. It is for these reasons that the pub lic have been unusualiy interested to know the part iculars of the w hole transaction that so suddenly brings a stain upon one of the hith erto most honorable houses of the country. Not long since we published an abstract of Messr*. Phelps, Dodge & Co.’s statement of the matter. It was an admission of a techni cal violation of the law but a denial of any purpose to defraud the revenue. Indeed, they that if the whole transactions of the firm were considered, the Government would be found to be the gainer. Their onense was me matting ot a second invo'ce or certain importations of tin which differed in some particula s from the invoice sworn to before tbc United States consul at Liverpool. The tariff was to be a certain percentage of the cost price when it was greater than the the contract price and the reverse when the contract price was greater than the actual cost. Ou certain lots, the firm asserts that Us Liverpool agent through ignorance of the laws invoiced at the contract price which was sometimes less than cost and sometimes greater, but on the whole the result would be favorable to the government. He not only did this but ha made oath that such invoices as he presented to the consul were the only ones made and then sends others giving the . actual cost of the goods. A clerk employedby the firm saw this irreg ularity and as the firm aver, selected such of the invoices as made an unfavorable showing against the revenue and destroyed those showing the opposite. In the course of time the spy becomes in former, and Messrs Phelps, Dodge <fc Co. say they prefer to settle the matter for just the value of the goods, the packages of which are tainted with irregularity rather than be come involved in a long suit ia law. Since the publication of the statement of Messrs. Phelps, Dodge & Co., the Treasury officials have given the official correspondence in full. The first communication relative to the alleged irregularity is a report of Special Agent Jayne on the matter in which he says lhat he finds that the invoices of the manu factures which he received from the informer agteed in every particular with those on file in the custom house except in the price paid, the difference being four shillings or less per package and in omitting the cost of transpor tation from Wales to Liverpool the place of shipping. As both invoices were made in the same hand writing and in direct violation of the provisions of the law governing the in voicing of ad-valorem goods that haB been in force since 1863, Mr. Jayne concludes that it was a systematic attempt to defraud the government. To conclude otherwise, is to assume that this great firm in the transaction of their enormous business knew nothing of the fmport or meaning the oath taken by their Liverpool agent or taken many times daily by some member of their firm and have known nothing or cared nothing for the laws they have systematically disregarded and defied, at least so says Mr. Javne. The transactions begun in January 1871 ; and of invoices which have been entered since that time, $1,720,000 have been tainted with fraud and would have been liable to seizure if discovered. Tbe items ou which an under valuation occur, amount to but $217, 017 23 on which the amount of undervalua tion is $0,657.78 and the total amount of du ties that the government should have receiv* ed on the same is $1664,68. The total im portation ol the firm i3 about 80,000.000 annually. There can be no question but that the government had a good case agiinst tbe firm; Indeed it admits as much when it makes the proposition to compromise for the cost of tbe goods. Tbe other question, and the one most important in connection with a firm so widely known, is, was it an act of oversight and carelessness or a well devised plan to de fraud the government? Messrs. Phelps, Dodge & Co. say it was not; and while they fail to show (hat such was not their intent, and it is evident that their Liverpool shipper failed to rtgard tbe express provisions of the law, it is hardly possible that men of their ex perience and reputation in business circles would have the folly to engage in a fraudulent transaction out of which they only realized $1600, and thereby vitiate an importation that embraced millions of dollars and rim the risk of damaging a reputation upon which no value could be set even in commercial circles. Good character and reputation must stand (or something, too; so in view of the circum stances, the judgment of fair minded men will be that thij great firm had become care less in some of the minor details of their enormous business. Thebe is a dead lock in the municipal gov ernment of Lawreuce. Six Democratic alder men were elected with theDemocratic Mayor, hut the common council is composed of eigh teen Republicans and twelve Democrats. The city officeis holding over are all Republicans. The Democratic board of mayor and aldermen are anxious to go into convention to elect officers for the present year, but the Repub lican council, fearing that the mayor will break the apparent tie, refuses to concur in the vote of the upper board, and, as a result, no officers have been elected but tbe old hold over until successors are chosen. The “outs” are getting anxious, nod now the Mayor has petitioned the Supreme Court for relief, and the court has ordered that the council go Into convention before a certain day, and in case of failure to appear and show causa there for. Ocb brief comment on W. Gilbert Esq.’s extrajudicial card seems to have roused the sleeping lion. In a letter occupying more than a column of I he Bath Times, lie devotes himself to a vigorous denunciation of the “congressional junto,” as he calls it, and to a demonstration, with full historical references, of the gross wrongs which Sagadahoc has sustained at the hands of the Republican party; and all liecause Mr. Gilbert was not appointed Judge instead of Mr.Pcters. That it » *3 mournfnl, viewed from the Gilbertian stand point, we will readily admit; but we caution the venerable dis-appointee to avoid choleric humors. They derange the blood, impair the digestive functions and often make elderly per sons appear ridiculous. Above all he should keep out of print. We have heard of men whoso “mouths go off too easy” ■ Mr GiI bert’a pen seems afflicted with a s’itnila'r ten dency to premature discharge. Tue following were the ordinary expenses or the United States and Great Britain for the past three years, the English pound sterling being turned into dollars at the rate of enc of the former to five of the latter: United States. Great Urit.i mi:::::::::;. , ,h‘s doc* uot of course include the amount seen that despite our paid°CorJS 'tWlU te large appropriations for rivers tT'" other internal improvements,’the expense of our Government are smaller than those of Great Britain and constantly decreasing while the latter indicate a steady increase in a time of peace. The St. Johnsbury Caledonian says that immense amounts of freight are delivered at the depot at Xlydo Park on the line of tho Portland and Ogdcnsburg railroad for mer chants along that road and in the towns north, south and west of it. When the road is comploted Portland will beyond question, be the place where the greater part of these goods will be purchased and where the great er part of the products of Vermont will find a market. Thera is, therefore, ample reason for our people making frequent and anxious inquiries as to the progress of the work. — ■ . Excitemeuton the Kennebec PROPOSED ABANDONMENT OF A RAH-ROAD. Augusta, April 20,1873. AIk. Editor,—The alleged revolutionary plans of the Maine Central oligarchy crea great excitement among the people living on the East side of the river, between here and Waterville. These plans conte mplate noth ing less than the abandonment of the eighteen or nineteen miles of road between this city and Waterville, and the construction of the new line from Augusta to Belgrade, thus forming a connection with tho Maine Cen tral proper in such a way as to avoid main taining two expensive bridges over the Ken nebec, one over the Sebasticook and several others of minor consequence. There would nlso be ton ot eleven less miles of track to be kept in repair, if the plan were adopted. You will see that there is a kind of plausi bility about tho scheme that is raleulated to create alarm in the rural district through which the doomed road passes. The new iron bridge across tho river at this point might seem to preclude the idea of au aban donment. But the company must build a new bridge across the Kennebec at Water ville at a very early day, and It is proposed to build it at the College Narrows, and to make it the only bridge across the Kennebec main uuueu oy uic juaine veuirai rauruuu. xuu new iron bridge at Augusta can easily be taken down and used for this purpose. The crossing at Kendall’s Mills is to be abandon ed in any event, and the further changes above described would undoubtedly add much to the simplicity, if not to the economy, of the Maine Central system of roads. Many of the original projectors of the Ken necbec and Somerset road were in favor of building it on the west side of the river, but the influence of the Langs and the villagers on the east side was sufficient to counteract that influence. In this way it happened that the track got so wonderfully mixed up with the Kennebec and Sebasticook rivers and with the country roads. The probability of the change is still further increased by the fact that tho Maine Central is now substantially controlled by strangers —men who care nothing for the rights and interests of tlis people, and who look upon it no longer as a local road, but merely as a link in that great through line from New York to Halifax of which ihey will soon be in pos session. The sacrifices made by the humble farmers of the Kennebec valley for the sake of insuring the building of*the road, their ex tensive losses by their subscriptions to the capital stock of the Somerset road, the adapt ation of their business and mode of life, to the new situation in which the road placed them, the new manufactures that have sprung up in consequence of the facilities offered by the road and which must be aban doned when the track is taken up—all these things will go for nothing with the stranger, who knows not Joseph. To the Editor of the Press: In your issue of the 21st a paragraph ap peared entitled “Topsham Finances”. The paragraph consists of an inference drawu from an inference made by a certain committee of Topsham to review the accounts of that town through a period of six years. While I have no hesitatiou or objection to fairly meet any issue which may be offered mo personally on that subject, I do object that an inference drawn from an inference of a committee sitting in judgment on town accounts should be cir culated throughout the State to my injury as a business man, when such inferences have no foundation in fact. My object in writing this being simply to ask a publication of it to piaco me in a proper position as regards the para graph referred to, I do not now intend to show the errors and I am sorry to say unjust insinu ations of this correctional committee of Public Safety. Suffice it to say the accounts they have passed in review had already passed the examination of six boards of aimual auditors and pronounced by them to have been properly vouched at a time when these matters were fresh in the minds of all, and everything ac counted for at the time. During a period of six years almost—after these accounts had been kept to the satisfaction of the towu who had knowledge of them when fresh—this committee mmcni, or raiuer mucu uepiore rue looso manner in which the town affairs were conduct ed. If it was any part of the duty of this com mittee to express lamentations on this subject, they have fulfilled that part. When the period to their lamentations consists iu making insinu ations against myself as the cause of this de plorable looseness in the town affairs—so much so as to occasion the paragraph referred to—I feel it a duty I owe to myself and the public to repudiate such insinuations as untrue. When issue is taken with me on.that subject in such a manner as will afford me an opportunity to meet it I shall be ready to meet it and happy to do so. Until then I trust all distant inferences to iny prejudice may be suspended. H. P. Mai,lett. Topsuam, April, 28tli, 1873.

What Is Vitality f Science has not yet answered this conundrum The principle of life, in spite of the researches of chemists, doctcrs and metaphysicians, remains un known. We know, however, that when the blood is impure, tbe stomach inert, the bowels irregular, the liver disordered, or ihe nerves relaxed, this life sus taining principle, whatever it may be, is shorn of its activepower and that the body it animates languish es. We know, too, such of us are capable of deriving knowledge from authenticated iacts, that Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters correct impurities of tbe bleod, in vigorate tho stomach, regulate the bowels, tonic the liver and brace tho nerves, thereby combatting and subduing the leading morbid condition which tend to shorten Ufe. The average time of humam existence might unquestionably be greatly lengthened by j u<i i cious stimulation, especially in the decline of Ufe, and this famous preparation is undoubtedly the mostw holesome ktimulant at present known.

BOSTON, Nov. 15, 1871. U. R. Stevens, Esq. : Dear Sir—In the spring of 18691 was stricken down with fever, which had a long and almost hopeless run. The best medical advice being in attendance, I was taken through tho fever; butitleftme terribly reduc ed and weak, with excruciating pains in my side, back and hips I was completely prostrated with Kidnoy Complaint, and no medicine seemed to reach my case In tliis condition I was persuaded to try VEGE TINE by a friend whom it cured or the same disease, and it seemed as though I could ieel the effect ot the first dose through my whole system; and from that moment 1 began t' mend, gradually growing better from day to- tay; and I followed on with the VEGE TINE, until it completely restored me to health, since which time I have been able to i»orform my duties as a police officer, enjoying good health; and there is no doubt about tho great value of VEGETINE in Kid nev Complaint and similar diseases, i am, sir, respectfully, LAFAYETTE FURD, 561 Broadway. Disease s of I ho Kidneys, Bladder, &c., are always unpleasant, and at times they become the most dis tressing and dangerous diseases that can affect the human system. Most diseases of the Kidneys arise from impurities in the blood, causing humors which Bettle on these parts. VEGETINE excels any known remedy in the whole world for cleansing and purify ing the blood, thereby causing a healthy action to all the organs of the body. VEGETINE is sold by all Druggists. HE REID THE ADVERTISEMENT i\n wis rirnrn H. K. Stevens, Esq.: Dear Sir—In expressing my thlinks to von lor ben efits derived from the use of VEGETINE, and to benefit others, I will state— When eight or nine years old I was afflicted with Scrofula, which made its appearance in mv eyes, face, and head, and I was very near blind for two years. All kinds of operations were performed on my eyes, and all to no good results. Finally the diseaso prin cipally settled in my body, limbs and feet, and at times in an aggravated way. Iaist 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 reliet. After using four or five bottles I noticed it had a wonderful effect on the rough scalv blotches on my body and legs. I still used VEGETINE, and the humorous sores one after another disappeared until they were all gone, and I attribute the cure of the two diseases to VEGETINE and nothing else. Ifl am ever affected with anything of the kind again, I shall try VEGETINE as the only reliable remedy. ,, „ . . ODce more accept my thanks, and believe me to be, Verv respectfully, AUSTIN F.
