Davis, comer of South aud Spring streets, ha3 been purchased for a Young Wo man’s Home. Near the Graud Trunk depot yesterday, a team was crossing the track on Commercial street, when it was run into by a locomotive The horse was thrown down and pushed for some distance.

Mr. Sherman Smith has charge of this department. A Lumber Firm.—The firm of Mowe, Co)e & Benson, recently established in New York, and engaged in the sale and shipping of lumber is already doing a large and prosperous busi ness. We take pleasure in noticing this fact for the reason that two members of the house are Maine men. Mr. Mowe was reared in East port, and Mr. L. H. Cole is well known here as the efficient manager of a large lumber busi ness in this city. All the partners are young mon l.oviiwr -.. .1 nn.-1 ilt/iii' success seems already assured. Wo are glad to know that they will have a branch office in this city, taking charge of the lumber business in which Mr. Cole has heretofore been interested. Messrs. Mowe and Cole were in the city yester day, and tendered a dinner at the Falmouth Hotel to a few of their friends in the lumber business. It was a very pleasant affair. Another Old Citizen Gone.—We recorded yesterday the death of Mr. James Mountfort, oil the 27 th instant, at the age of 81 years. The deceased was one of the worthy men ot Port land-honest and upright in all his dealings, and noted for his strict integrity. When Port land was organized into a city in 1832, Mr. Mountfort was elected Councilman from Ward one, and was re-elected for six successive years until 1839, when ho declined being a candidate. As a member cf the city government he always had the interests of the people in view and based his action accordingly. Of him it can truly be said, be was an honest man without guile.__ Grand Assembly—The first grand assembly of the Montgomery Guards takes place at City Hall this evening. The many friends of this fine organization will undoubtedly turn out in great numbers at this, its christening ball. A drill will precede the dancing, and will he fine, for tho company is in a state of efficiency and will ‘‘do itself proud.' We hope for a large as eembly. Tiie Trial op Elisha J. Cotton —A trial ’ of more thau ordinary interest has during tlio past few days occupied the attention of the U. • S. Circuit Court in this city, Judge Shepley pro- j siding. Elisha T Cotton of Brownfield, was ar rested on the charge of passing upon two differ ent persons, at different times, a ten dollar bill which is acknowledged to be counterfeit. The first party, a Mr. Whitcomb of Lewiston, to whom he passed i t returned the bill to Cotton and received two good fives for it. The secon party, Mr. Black, clerk of the Adams House ot this city, placed the matter in the hands of two United Staies detectives, who were hoarding at the Adams House at that time. The defeuce put in a general denial and plead ed a want of proof on the part of the govern ment They averred the unimpeached charac ter of the accused up to the time of this accu sation ; the failure on the part of the govern ment to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, knowledge on the part of the accused that the bill was had when he passed it. The defence introduced the testimony of Dr. Daveis to prove that Colton’s eyes are diseased, and that it is impossible for him to see anything distinctly. Hon. Nathan Webb, District Attorney, ap peared for the government, and Strout & Holmes for the defence. The Judge did not charge the jury last night. The general impression of those who have heard the testimony and the arguments is that the government lias failed to make out a case. An Irish Woman on Her Travels.—At the lower end of A. Q. Leach’s dry goods store is a large mirror extending from the floor to the A „ Tmlm tvoa ill til A store yesterday purchasing goods, seeing what she thought another department of the store be yond, attempted to step over the marble slab placed at the foot of tlio mirror and struck tho toe of her brogau solidly against the mirror. Fortunately the mirror was a thick plate glass and resisted the toe, or the damage would have been considerable. Removal op Prisoners.—Yesterday, Sheriff Warren of York county, and County Commis sioner Brackett and several deputy sheriffs, quietly removed the alleged murderer, Wagner, and tlio rest of the York county prisoners from the jail to a close c ar at the Portland and Roch ester depot, from whence they were conveyed on tho half past one train to the new jail in Al fred, which has been completed for the recep tion of prisoners. In addition to Wagner there were several hard characters. The removal was effectcJRo quietly that it. attracted no at tention. __ Ten Nights in a Bar Room.—Grand Army Hall was well filled last evening with an audi ence that appeared to enjoy very much the evenings entertainment. T. S. Arthur’s cele brated dramatic story was produced with a viv idness and power that reflected credit on tho club that presented it. This evening it will be repeated at the same place and as the proceeds of both evenings are to help swell tho fund of the Maine General Hospital, we sincerely trust our citizens will lend a helping hand. Police Notes.—At the station last night there were three persons arrested for drunken ness and disturbance; one, a young man,charged with stealing a pocket book from the captain of a vessel, and a man and woman charged with unlawful cohabtation. The parties arc a married woman from Augusta-and a man be longing in this city, who have been living as man and wife for some time. Marshal Parker and "Deputy Williams made the arrest. There were also three lodgers. Surprise Partv.—Some twenty or thirty of the members of Portland Division No. 95, Sons : of Temperance, visited Past Worthy Patriarch . R. W. Lincoln last evening, and presented him I with a beautiful Grand Division regalia. The presentation was made in handsome terms by Mr. Francis Loriug. The intention was en tirely unknown to tlio recipient, and was ns handsomely carried out as it was secretly got «P-_ The Owen Benefit.—We notice the tickets for Owen’s benefit to tho Hospital Fail for Saturday evening next are selling rapidly. We are glad to see the front scats in the gallery arc to he reserved at 75 cents each, as we consider them equal to any in the house. Those who failed to obtain seats at Mr. Owen’s last appear .auee will now have an opportunity to witness one of his most popular entertainments. Sheridan and Mack at Music Ilall last evening drew out a good house. The variety of this entertainment keeps the audience in ex cellent humor, and taken altogether it is one of tho hast of tho class that visits tho city. Presentation—Monday even ingFred Strout, l clerk of the Preble House, had presented to ] and well deserved testimonial in the shape of a j gold watch and chain valued at $240. Questionable Economy.—Any of the Safe Deposit Vault Companies in New York city, would have taken on special deposit the valu. abies going to make up the $1G2,000 belonging to individuals—received by the directors of the Atlantic National Bank, as a favor (?) to the depositors—which the Cashier of that institu tion used up in his operations in Wall street,for a sum not exceeding two dollars per thousand. The failure to make deposits with a Deposit Company results iu a loss to some one—the stockliolders.of the bank or the depositors—of some ninety-nine and four-fifths perceut of the amount. The depositars have the satisfaction of knowing that they did not have to pay that one-fifth of one per cent, for security, niSCELLAAEOTN NOTH!KM.

The B."Webster was built under special survey of French Lloyds, and is of special model and build throughout, and is withal one of tho best vessels ever launched here. NEW HAMPSH1 BE. The Trouble of Close Elections. Concord, April 29.—At a meeting of tho Governor and Council to-day, the votes for Con gressional Bepresentatives'in districts one and two were counted, and the committee will count that for the third district to-morrow. There will he no change in the vote as already report ed iu the first and third districts. Iteturus in the second district were found to give the elec tion to Hon. Austin F. Pike by 7 plurality. At tho request of the Governor and Council parties were heard on the question of correcting elec tion returns, errors in favor of Hon. S. N. Bell having occurred, as declared in Ward 5, 51an chester and Hopkinton, the correction of which give Boil a plurality, it is said, of 13. The pow er of the Governor aud Council to go behind record of votes in the several towns in tho dis tricts was discussed at great length, pro and con. There were uo precedents to quote that bore directly on tho case, therefore controversy depended almost exclusively as a question of propriety ct opening a subject which might nato uu puiuii wi uiiuuiauuil, iiuu might not bo confined to errors specifically al leged. The Council arose without deciding on the question of granting a certificate to either contestant, and it is pretty well understood here to-night the question of executive authority to permit corrections of returns will be submitted to the Judiciary of the State. MASSACHUSETTS. The New Railroad Corporation. Boston’, April 29.—The Board of directors of the New York and New England Railroad met at the office of the trustees ot the Bostou, Hart ford & Eric Railroad to-day, aud organized by the choice of Win, F. Hart as President, and H. C. Luce as Treasurer. The executive com mittee consists of Messrs. Watson, Foster and Lotlirop, and the finance committee of Messrs. Jewell, Barlow and Dane. Chas. P. Clark of Boston, was appointed General Manager. Tlie War of the “Doctors.” The trial of the offending members of the Massachusetts Medical Society, against whom charges have been preferred by the society be cause they practice homeopathy, commenced to-day. Among tho prominent physicians on trial 'are I)rs. Win. Bushnell, David Thayer and J. J. Talbot. No. 2 of the specifications alleges “that while a member of the Massachu setts Medical Society, you have joined aud are a member of a certain Bociety called the Massa chusetts Homeopatlrc Medical Society, which adopts as its principle in the treatment of disease a certain exclusive theory or dogma known as homeopathy, and whose purposes are at variance with and which tends to disor ganize ttie Massachusetts Medical Society.” The trial attracts quite a largo attendance of M. D’s. Various Tinners The reported death of Crawford, who was stab bed by Hoppiu in Danvers, Sunday, was incor ect. Ho was alive to-day with a slight prospect af recovery. A very attractive fair in aid of the Young Mens Christian Association under name of “Bazaar of All Nations,” was successfully in augurated in Music Hall to-ni'ght. It is a com prehensive and altogether a moral exhibition aud will, doubtless, materially assist in its ob ject, the clearing of the association from debt. Edward McGloane was eonvieted of man slaughter to-day, for causing the deatli of Chas. Mahan by violently pushing him down a flight of stairs.' NEW YORK. Vicars of the Indian Commissioners. New York, April 29.—The commissioners in their discussion last night thought the most important field was among the Sioux Indians, who number about 35,000, many of whom may be disposed to give trouble if a satisfactory ar rangement is not mado with them in regard to tho Northern Pacific railroad. Spotted Tail’s band is restless because of the recent murder of some chiefs, and a rising is feared in Black River and Powder Hill country, should a new expedition seek to open up this country. The commissioners will have a couucii with the Ncz Forces m the summer, and they do not ex pect trouble from them. Neither do they ex pect trouble with the Klamaths, Snakes or other Indians in the Modoc country. A “Corner” in Sailors. Commissioner Duncan has succeeded iu ex citing the opposition of sailor hoarding house the commerce of the port. Vessels with valu able cargoes en board have been detained more than a week, and there is no prospect of get ting crows.

The Adamic Bank. Receiver Strong reports that to-day’s exami nation shows the Atlantic Bank to be in a bet ter condition than was anticipated. Sonic of tlio slock supposed to have been hypothecated has beeu found in a security box, and it is be lieved more will he discovered. The suspenso account in which call loans amounting toSJlOO, 300 were noted, shows that although the amount lias been carried a year, at least 50 per cent, is owned by parties from whom it may be collected. The defaulting cashier, Tainter, was indicted to-day by the United States grand jury. A Fight. This afternoon as Jay Gould was taking a lunch in Delmouico’s on Broad street, with Charles J. Osborne, his broker, J. J. Marvin, a lawyer, came up to Gould and after a few minutes conversation with him, struck him in the face. Gould did not retaliate hut left for his office and shortly afterwards drove up town with his counsel. A difficulty between Jay Gould and Marvin to-day is said to have arisen from an old Erie litigation. Marvin is said to have been under the influence of liquor. A warrant has been issued for liis arrest and he will appear before Tudgc Dowling to-msrrow. * Various .Hatters. Six convicts at Blackwell’s Island yesterday ifternoon, overpowered their keepers aud es iaped. Three of them were recaptured in the ivening in Williamsburg.

President Watson and Counsellor Barlow of the Erie railway have gone to Bestoti to assist in organizing a Board of Directors of the Hart ford and Erie Company. It is believed that Mr. Hartt will be elected President. The aggregate of goods, offered the Indian Commissioners on bids opened to-day, was over 550,000,000. Prices were very low and compe tition greater than was ever known.

Au Important Decision, Washington, April 29.—The Supreme Court resterday, in the collision case from Maryland, eld that nautical rules require when a steam er and sailing vessel are approaching, that from he very moment a sail is in view the steamer shall watch with utmost diligence her course md movements so as to be able to adopt such finely measures of precaution as will necessary irevent the two boats coming in contact. The 'anlt on the part of the sailing vessel does not ibsolve the steamer suffering itself to get into langerous proximity.

I.isj of tiie Killed anti Wou»d«fl, Lava Beds, April 20.—A roconnoitering party composed of batteries A and K, of the 4th Artillery, and Co. E of the 12tli Infantry, left camp at 7.30 this morning proceeding in the direction known to lead to the present stronghold of the Modocs, Capt. Thomas in command. A dozen or twenty of the Warm Spring Indian? were expected to co-operalo on Thomas’ left. The troops having formed a line the skirmishers advanced without molestation HU IIUUJ itlinuu illi U1C loot OL U U1U11, HOULXX U1 the Lava Beds having meanwhile signalled to the camp that no Indians were to bo found. On reaching the bluff the Modocs opened a severe tire causing the troops to seek such shelter a3 they could find in tbe crevices, chasms, &c. As usual the foe was uuseea; the first position soon became untenable owing to the fact that the Indians were able to deliver a cross fire and an enfilading fire, and tho position of the troops is so exposed that up to the present writing, 7 o’clock p. in., only two could reach the camp out of nine wounded. Lieut. Wright of the 12th Iufantry had sougbt’shelter iu the crevices which were particularly open to tho Modoc fire. Grave doubts exist as to their ul timate safety. As soon as information is re ceived at headquarters relative to tho peril of the party, troops wilhat once be pushed forward to the rescue. Four companies are ordered out, two of cavalry lrotn this camp, and two from Col. Mason’s. Stre obors for conveying the wounded were forwarded, but the latter are now returning without having achieved the object that they were intended for. A bitter cold night is be fore them. It is barely possible from the char acter of the evening that some of them no longer heed cold or lieat. Lava Beds, April 27, 5.39 A. M.—A des patch received from Col. Green of tho 1st Cavalry, who went out with reinforcements yesterday morning show3 tho surprise tp have been more complete and more terribly fatal than was first supposed. The despatch states that Adjut. Thomas and Lieut. A. K. Howe of tbe 4th Artillery were killed. Lieut. Harries of the 4th Artillery is hadlv and, perhaps, mor tally wouuded, and Lieut. Barustou of tho 4th Artillery is missing. From tho second despatch sent by Coi. Green it appears there are now collected and waiting conveyance to camp, the bodies of 16 men killed including Capt. Thomas, Lieut. Howe, Lieut. Wright, aDd eight wounded, including Lieut. Harris of the 4th Artillery. Three added to the number of wounded men above cited show largo percentage of casualties from the small number of men engaged. Eighty Modocs are armed with Spencer carbines anil breech load ing muskets. In more than oue instance a Modoc has been known to havo two or more Spencer rifles, enabling him to keep up rapid fire from his natural or artificial breastwork of rock. The surface of the ground in many places is toru up by volcanic actions, which form crev;ces, and these are adaptable to pur poses of either hiding or for points of defence. In several instances soldiers knowing nothing of topography have come unawares on such fissures and before they could escape were confronted by a wTily Indian with rifle levelled and finger upon the trigger. Death, of at least a dangerous wound, is the result. Too often the cowardly redskins escape by paths know'll only to themselves. As a sample of their treachery and cunning may not be amiss I will state that a portion of batteries A and K, finding themselves in danger of being out flanked, took shelter in a hollow spot affording partial cover. No sooner had they done so than tho Indians, who know and command every egress from tho cavity at that point, numbering21 warriors, detached seven of their number on one side, fourteen remaining on the other, and then opened a cross fire on the pour fellows who could not show a head or hand without the certainty of being struck. Very few escaped injury and tbe rest were killed or wounded. It is impossible to ascertain the number of Modocs killed and wounded yester day. Capt. McKay reported that his Warm Spring Indians had taken four scalps. This may lie the wholo or it may be only a portion of tho killed, the Modocs being very careful to destroy as fast as possible all traces of their casualties, carrying their wounded iu caves and burning the dead bodies. Tho wounded arc supposed to be hidden in eaves, but few of them l have been seen so far. Justice fo the gallant i dead compels a record of tho following facts j which aro well authenticated: When Capt. Thomas found himself and meu surrounded by his vindictive foe, true to his tia ■ turc as a soldier he sought to cheer the soldiers on to the hitter end, and obtain if possible life ! for life and sell their lives dearly, saving: "Men, we are surrounded; we must tight an-l die like men and soldiers.” In bis noble efforts to sustain the courage of his small command he was ably seconded by Lieut. Howe and Lieut. Wright. After receiving a mortal wound he buried his gold watch and chain among the rocks and emptied his revolver amongst the en emy before dying. If living he would also write in terms of well deserved praise of the conduct of Lieut. Howe, who was similarly sit uated. Capt. Thomas with a portion of batte ry K, -1th artillery, set au example of bravery aud determination to his men, uttering some such sentiments as those already quoted, not that that it required such expressions to stimu late men to deeds of bravery when every man would willingly have followed either officer wherever he chose to lead, yet they showed the mutual confidence existing between them. Sinco they were to fall it is u pity that it had not been alien opposed to worthier foes. Yet it is a mournful consolation that Capt. Thomas, Lieut. Howe and Lieut. Wright, the sons of soldiers, met a soldiers’ death in defence of the govern ment and laws of the country. Of the men killotl or wounded it is perhaps sufficient to sav they sealed their bravery with their lives 8.30 P. M.—The reiu'forccments sent out un der Col. Green, together with the killed aud wounded, are expected momentarily. Heavy rain is now falling, which is beneficial to the poor wounded men in alleviating their suffering auArelieviug their feverish limbs. Their arriv al is anxiously looked for by their more fortu nate comrades in camp. Every preparation is made for their proper reception. When the news of the massacre reached camp the soldiers who had grown old and grey in the service wept like babies at the fato of their officers and com rades. April 28—fi A.

Romer, battery A, and private James Rose, battery K, 4th artillery, died yesterday; Sergt, Back, battery A. came in wounded, not previously mentioned. In many instances it would be difficult to recognize the dead but for some article of brass known to have belonged to them, Indian barbarity has so defaced the lineaments of the killed.

New York, April 29.—The Herald’s special from tho Lava Beds dated tho 26th savs that the force under Capt. Thomas which started to reconnoitre the position supposed to ho held by the Modocs, numbered69 men. The object was mainly to lind out how the Modocs were situat ed, and whether mortars could be brought up and used efficiently against them. As thetroops approached tho base of the Lava Beds about 101 o'clock, our command was brraght to a halt and the men were allowed to take a rest. The story of the first fire is differently reported. Mr.'Ticner states positively that it came from a party of nino Indians, who occupied tho bluff to the eastward of where the troops were sta tioned. Major Thomas immediately threw tho men into skirmishing order, with Lieutenant Wright’s company sn the right, Tho latter, however, had not got into position before they were flanked to the right by a party of fourteen Indians that had come up to the advance of those who fired first. The cross lire on Lieut. Wright’s men proved very demoralizing and they broke back in contusion, leaving their gal

lant leader in an exposed position and support ed by a few non-commissioned officors. In the meantime another small party of In dians had obtained a position to the left and opened a raking fire on tho two batteries of ar tillery. It was a fearful trap and the first few shots were only fired to draw tho troops more directly between the fire of the Indians on the right and left. Tho route was complete aud mall- e ?x21ption the officers and non-com nissmned officers, the majority of whom lay ml} *he? on tlle !'ocks with their life blood ob a!,1?v>ast. *5? watoi word was ‘ Sauvo rent. Confused and disorganized as they were tlie men became mi easyxirey to tho Mo docs who, confident in tho protection of their native rocks, shot them down like so many frightened deer. Occasionally news was brought by the scared stragglers exagerated in the ex treme, but significant of some dire disaster.— Many of these men who had deserted their offi cers in time of peril had seen a hundred Indi ans all around them. I ears had distorted their vission and made them so helpless that that one of their number was afterwards found dead on the field without a shot. Ho had been butchered, with kuives aud was so panic struck ho could not fire a shot in his own defence. There was a mystery about the attack that nobody apx>cared able to solve as to how tho troops were so complete ly surprised. If in camp, where wero the pickets or advanced skirmishers. It appeared so strange that a party of 09 men should be al most surrounded by tbe Indians without their being aware of tho Indian’s presence, as far as they could see. This fact alone will give the public an idea of the nature of tho ground on winch these Indians fight and what our sol diers have to contend against. During the uight the Indians were creeping through tho rocks to scalp and strip tho dead. Ihe soldiers coming through Col. Green’s line told him where the remains of batteries K and A were to be found. Col. Green immediately - moved forward his line to the place instructed, and there hidden in some sage brush were the bodies of Major Thomas, Lieut. Howe, acting surgeon Simig, Sergt. Rowe and six others. Col. Wright’s body lay a little to the left, and on the right was Lieut. Harris severely wound ed and the bodies of five of his men stripped of all their clothing* Fears of Another Indian Massacrec, San Francisco, April 29.—A despatch from Portland, Oregon, to-night, states that 1100 In- ; diau warriors are camped at White Bluffs, i Yakama river, above Walla Walla,and are put- j ting up breast works.

Herald]—The following is tho true will of the late Emperor Napoleon'un der which letters of administration are applied for. The estate is sworn to under §120,000 sterling,and this sum is subject to claims which will reduce it one half: “This is my will.” I reco mmend my son and my wife to the high authorities of the state, to the people and to the army. The Empress Eu genie possesses all the qualities requisite for capably conducting the regency; and my sou displays a disposition and judment which will reuder him worthy of his high destines. Let him never forget the motto of the head of our family. “Everything for the French people.”— Let him fix on his mind writings of the prison tr at St. Helena. Let him study the Emperor’s deeds and correspondence, and finally let him remember when circumstances permit that the cause of the people is the cause of France.— j Power is a heavy burden, becauso one caunot | always do all the good one could wish, and be cause contemporaries seldom render justice; so j that in order to fulfill one’s mission, one must j have faith and conscientiously appreeiate his 1 duty. It is necessary to consider that from j Heaven above those whom you have loved, re gard and protect you. It is the soul of my il lustrious uncle that has always inspired and sustained me. Tho like will apply to my son, for lie will always be worthy of lus name. I leave to tho Express all of my private proper ty. I wish that at the majority of my sou she shall live at the Elysee and Biarritz. I trust inV niPmrtPU will Iia rlnoi* hap marl fhot oflnr my death she will forget whatever unhappiness I may have caused her. With regard to my son let him keep as a tailsman the seal I wore attached to my watch aud which comes from my mother. Let him carefully preserve every thing that came to mo from the Emperor, my uncle, and let him ho convinced that my heart and my soul remain with him. f make no men tion of my faithful servants. I am convinced that the Empress and my son will never aban don them. I shall die in the Catholic opstatic and Roman religion which my son will always honor by his piety. Done and signed with my hand at the Palace of the Tuileries the 24th of April, 1835. (Signed) Napoleon. The Exhibition Trouble. Vienna, April 29.—Special to New York Herald—The American scandal still occasions great excitement in aristocratic circles. It is discussed with sneers as another indication of the working of Democratic institutions. Gen. Mayer acting under the advice of his counsel, premptorily refuses to surrender the official pa pers with list of exhibitors and the new com missioners are completely hampered, and will probably request interference of the Austrian govern merit. Dr. Ruppaner, another of the suspended commissioners, has left for Switzer land. Van Buren is still here. The Cnrlist Susnrrcctiau. Additional advises received through Carlist channels represent that chieftains Sabrilas, August, Merrietct, Soulla, Valles aud Cristany are capable of concentrating all their forces, some 1,009, in a few hoars. Seballas is block ading the City of Vick, 37 miles from Barcelo na; Don Alphonzo is in the Province of Lerida where 500 men of a San Fernando regiment of regular army have deserted to his banner.
