The improvements at the Boston & Maine depot for the convenience of hacks is a great desideratum. Yesterday was a lovely day. The fog in the morning rolled away, leaving » clear, soft, sweet air. Don’t forget the May dance at Congress Hall to-night. The “Emeralds” are to bring out “Peep O’ Day” at Music Hall, Wednesday, May 7th, and also May 14th. Now that the season has arrived for burning °ld brush and rubbish, people should be cau tious about lire. The Boston & Maine train waited several hours yesterday morning for tho Maine Cen tral. The destruction of the bridge on tho lat ter road lias disarranged their running time. The baggage car of the early down traiu yes terday, on the Ogdeusburg road, caught fire by sparks from the engino when just above Lake Station. The train was stopped and the fire extinguished. The car was but slightly dam aged. We are requested to remind the corporators of tho new Insurance Company of tho meet ing called for three o’clock this afternoon.

The land on Union street that was .sold al auction yesterday by F, O. Bailey & Co. to Mr. Moulton, brought §1.33 a foot Judge Sawyer of San Francisco, has present ed to his father, Enoch Sawyer, who resides in this city, a handsome Malacca cane.

Conductor How ard of the Maine Central, slipped while getting on the train at South Gardiner last Monday, and just escaped serious injury. ^ The injunction against the Maine Central has been continued without prejudice on mo tion to dissolve. Grand Army Hall was filled last evening with an appreciative audience. The young people who presented “Ten Nights in a Bat Room have reason to feel proud of their suc cess. We hope we shall hear train them again. The y ouug man, Jordon, who was arrested on suspicion of larceny, Tuesday, was dis charged yesterday. A sweet little dot of a girl got lost yesterday, aud was carried to tlio station by a lady. Marshal Parker received a despatch last night from the City Marshal of Halifax, requesting him to arrest and return a runaway boy who was on board tbo steamer Charlotte, which was due here at three o’clock this morning. Meeting op the Maine Central Direc tors.—A very full meeting of the Board of Directors of the Maiuo Central Railroad was held in this city (its natural headquarters) Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The principal matter considered was the re-con struction of the line of the road at Kendall’s Mills, which is now interrupted at that point by the burning of the bridge. We understand that there was a full consultation on the subject and plans were considered, viz: First: To rebuild the bridge at Ken fall’s Mills. Second: To build a bridge abovo Colby Uni versity, iu Waterville, and connect on the east side. Third: To have ouo bridge somewhere npar the present bridge at Waterville for the Skowhegan aud Lewiston trains to cross, but extend the road up the oast side of the Kenne bec to Kendall’s Mills for all the through east business and thus avoid crossing the Kcnnebac more than once. The opinion of the Directors was decidedly preferable to the last plan and it would probably be adopted at once if the company had a char ter to enable them to build the now road. They would probably run the risk to do this could they secure all the land for location on the pro posed line at any possible rates; butone citi zen at Kendall’s Mills owns a lot of land which the road must crops that he will not sell, as lio avers, for that purpose if it is “covered with greenbacks a foot deep.” The Directors, how ever, are assured of a location if they will lay their road out so as to make a junction a mile (and a half east of Kendall’s Mills that will be no more expensive than the route along the rii’Gv Knnlr The Direct.rs made President Itiec, Vico President Morrill and Noah Woods a com mittee, clothed with full power, to make the best possible connection in the briefest possible time. Tlie matter of discontinuing the old Kenne bec road from Augusta to Kendall’s Mills and building a road from Augusta to Belgrade in stead, lias never been considered a moment and is only the liorid apparition of timid Ken nebec farmers who have been frightened by oft repeated tales of railroad perfidy. There is no doubt but what the managers havo fully determined to adopt the last plan named if they can safely carry it into execu tion. It can be done in the shortest time, will bo the cheapest and most peimancnt. The Montgomery Guards at City Hall.— The assembly and drill of tho Montgomery Guards at City Hall last evening, was a success ful affair. A large company was present to participate in the festivities. The company drill and bayonet cxerciso were both finely ex ecuted. A splendid flag was presented to tho Company by Miss Mary A. Dory, with an ap propriate address, which was happily respond ed to by Captain A. J. McMahon, who receiv ed the flag in behalf of tho Company. The flag was a rich green silk with a Harp on ono side, and the wreath of Shamrock on the re verse. It was made in Boston, and cost $75. The Company appeared in their new and tasty uniform made by Arthur Noble of this city. The dancing was continued until the weo hoars of morn. New Feature in the Boston & Maine Dei*ot.—The Boston & Maine Itailroad Com pany are adding a new feature to their depot arrangements in this city. One wing of the Walker House is being fitted up as a restau rant. The main room has a principal entrance from the large hall of the depot and is intend ed for the use of gentlemen.

On Tuesday as this train was running between Lachiuc Junction and Bonaventure station, about a mile from the latter point, a lady who resides near the track, observed a man coolly place bis head and shoulders between the wheels of tlie second and third car from the engine. No one on the train seemed to observe the act. The inward bound train came along soon after and seeing tlie body stopped, took it aboard and carried it to the next station. The head and shoulders were horribly crushed. Tho man was | well dressed, and appeared to be about 50 years of age. The body wa3 unrecognized up to tho time our informant left. It was unquestiona bly a case of suicide. A Brio with a History.—Yesterday F. O. Bailey & Co. sold at auction the brig Jibaro, ly ing at Commercial wharf, to K. Lewis, esq., for $2100. There is a history connected with the sale of this brig. Certain parties in Cuba were owiDg E. Churchill, J. E. Carter, M. B. Clem onts and E. S. Churchill of this city. The Cu ban parties were unable to pay tho Portland creditors, and pending a settlement of these claims they purchased this brig. The Portland gentlemen attached tho brig and advertised her for sale.

The Press on the Modoc M ar. i New York, April 30.—The Times urges the fighting of the Modocs their own way, as the country is tired of the miserable slaughter of our soldiers. The Tribune says that the Indians should never bo allowed to forget the supreme power of national forces, and it will ho easy to pre dict how many bauds will spring up from this last fatal success. The Herald says that in view of the threat ened uprising of the Indians, the immediate suppression of Capt. Jack and his Modocs is a matter of the highest moment. It says: “Let Gen. Sheridan he detailed to the duty of the settlement with Capt. Jack, and to a general overhauling of all tribes, reservations, Indian Agents, peace makers and all, and then we shall have peace.” The World finds fault with Gen. Gillem for making the advance, and says it is idle to waste indignation on the Modocs. The Sun calls for the utter extermination of the Modocs, but not at the expense of so many lives of good soldiers. Inhumanity to n Sick Woman. An elderly woman named Elizabeth McGraw, of Boston, was found last evening in the raio on one of the benches in City Hall park, sick. She had been ejected from the Park Hospital by the keeper in a cruel manner, against the remonstrances of the Park physician.

Total receipts from all sources for the first four months of 1872, $41,045,937, and for the first four months of tho present year, $32 094,609. There seems uo doubt that the estimated re ceipts for the present fiscal year,namely, 8110, 000,000, will be fnlly realized. The receipts al ready amount to over $93,000,000, with two months remaining of the fiscal year. Postal Card Decisions.

There will soon appear au officially authoriz ed stalcmcut of the labor movement by John Pool of North Carolina, chairman of the Na tional Executive Committee of the united workingmen of America. Gen. Crook’s Peace Policy. Gen. Crook’s manner of carrying out the peace policy in Arizona is strongly endorsed, especially in military circles. It is known that two of the most formidable hands of Apaches have recently surreuded through the absolute of his troops, one of the chiefs saying in coun cil that he first thanked Gen. Crook then God for holding forth the olive branch and permit ting his people to come in under the whitest rag in the band. Gen. Crook in a letter to dele gate McConnic dated Prescott, Arizona 11th, says "although we may have some scattering depredations in some parts of the tenitory I feel that the main work is over and the necessary connection can be made by the post conimand I crs. I expect, however, to be kept busy several months to como watching that the Indians on tho various reservations settle down in the right grounds,” THE MODOC WAB. The Peeling about tbe Modoc Disaster. San Ebancisco, April 29.—A despatch from Yreka to night says that tho people of that place and in Scott’s Va’ley are ariniug under the apprehension that there will be a general Indian war. Mendenhall’s troops, numbering 130 men, were expected to join General Gillern last night. The settlers in the valleys of Oregon, above the lakes and lava beds, are moving away with cattle and other property, being afraid to re main lonsrer. There is no further nows from Uie tront. New York. April 30.—A Yreka despatch dated last nisi)1- 3ay3 that tho news there over the defeat of our troops causes the greatest ex citement, and there is strong disposition by old frontiersmen to organize a party to fight the Modoes in their own style. If any inducement were held out to these men they could exter minate G'apt. Jack and his band shortly. Tlic report that the Modoc squaws and pap poses had taken refuge with the Pitt River Indians is not credited at Yreka, as those tribes are not on friendly terms. The ladies of Yreka have organized a society for the relief of the wounded soldiers. It is generally believed that Lieut. Cranston and party will not be heard from again. Gen. Davis and staff leave this morning (the 30th) for camp. A Wash ire ton special says that it is a mys tery to the War Department how tho Modoes are so well provided with ammunition and the latest implements. Gen. Sherman says there was no such loss during any engagement in the late war as in the last fight with tho Modoes. The latter have chosen a far more difficulty country to battle in than the Scmiuoles had in the everglades of Florida, and how it is to end we cannot tell. He thinks they certainly have allies, either Indians or whites, but the difficult to overcome is the same, aud whatever the victory may cost it must be achived. Another prominent army officer states that every prep aration is making for an emergency that may arise in that section of the country. The suc cess of tho Modoes over the army is thought by. old army officers to be the precursor of a long conflict with the Indians. Loss of an Ocean Steamer. New York, April 30.—The Herald has a let ter from RioJanerioof April 4th giving the following account of the less of French steam ship Gambia. It is chiefly interesting because of the similarity in some respects to the Atlan tic disaster, though the results are so widely different. The Gambia sailed from Rio March 4th for Bordeaux with quite a full passenger list and a cargo of coffee, hides and tallow.
