A Very Important Matter. A. heating novr in progress before the Rail Way Committee of the Massachusetts jnegis lature, on a bill for tlie consolidation of the Kastcm and Boston and Maine railroads as the Boston and Portland Railroad Company, is a matter of no little interest to Maine in general, and this city in particular. President Lothrop of the Eastern Railroad, on Wed nesday made an argument in favor of the . _1__ -_,1__j. . , . iiivuxuiv) a* uuiouuuivmi tu tuc bill providing that the consolidated company or either oi them proposing to be consolidated, may purchase, lease or consolidate with all or auy of the roads forming the line between Poxtland and Halifax. It is very evident from the brief mention given of the hearing by the Boston papers, that both the Eastern and Boston and Maine companies are finding that the present policy is not satisfactory and that there is a growing di-position to come into more amicable relations. The heaving was continued Thursday, when Mr. Lothrop on the part of the Eastern, aud Mr. Choate for the Boston and Maine, came to a substantial agreement on all the provisions of the bill except that relative to the leasing of the con necting roads to St. John and Halifax. The hearing was then adjourned until next Wed nesday in order to give the parties lime to frame a section on which they could agree. There is no indication how far the two companies represented will carry out the pro visions of the bill, should it pass; but the fact that parties arc there representing both cor porations would warrant the conclusion that there is at least a strong if not a controlling interest in both companies in favor of the consolidation. Intelligent men in this State will see at a glance that this'is one of the most important railroad schemes in its bearing upon Maine interests that has hecn considered by a legis lature for twenty years. It is needless to say that it looks to the ultimate control of all the railroad lines east of Boston leading to that city, by Boston capital for Boston interests. The consummation of the plan will be the death blow to a competing line between Port land and Bangor and dispel all the expecta tions that may have atisen in consequence of a sceond liuc between Portland and Boston. In auy light in which the consolidation can be viewed with respect to Maine interests.it will be most unfavorable. Congressman Brooks. Hon. James Brook., whose death took place Wednesday, April 30th, in Washington, wti lifirn in PfirHan^ VnwtviTwtr infix 1£/Y7 He spent his early life in this city and Lew iston and entered Walerville College at the age of sixteen graduating in 1828 when not quite twenty-one years of age. In the fall of 1*58 he was employed as a teacher in the Portland Latin school. In 1829 he was em ployed as a writer on the Portland Adver tiser, at first in a p ivate way hut was soon recognized as a man of ability and made its editor. In connection with his edi torial work he read law and was admitted to the Cumberland bar. In 1831 Mr. Brooks induced the publishers of the Advertiser to pay bi« expenses to Washington during a ses sion of Congress, and then he originated the idea of the Washington correspondent as now recognized. In 1834 Mr. Brooks was elected a member of the Legislature from Portland. In 1835 he visited Europe as the correspon dent of the Advertiser, making a thorough tour of Groat Biitain and Italy, writiug a aeries of letters that brought him Into most favorable notice. Returning to New York in the spring of 1836 he entered into a scheme t/» start the New York Express, which was done in the June following. Although Mr. Brooks’ interests were now chiefly in New York he claimed a residence in Maine, and was nominated by the Whigs for Congress in this district the same fall. In September there was no choice as a majority was required aud there were three candidates in the field. In November Hon. F. O. J. Smith was re-elected, whereupon Mr. Brooks took up his residence in New York, though he frequently visited Fortland from that time until 1840. James Brooks began his political career as a Whig and ultra protectionist. Indeed so ardently was he devoted to the “American .doctrine'’ that he introduced an emphatic reso lution on that subject in a Whig State Con vention. In his early political life, too, he was an Abolitionist, but marrying a Southern wife, his opinions gradually changed on this subject until he became an ultra pro-slavery •ujpocate. With his brother Erastus he ha; ever been identified more or less closely with the New York Express and tho mutations of that paper may very properly represent the devi ous course of James Brooks the politician. At first “decidedly Whig’’ and ultra protec tionist. it drifted into Know-Nothingism in 1334, then into pro-slavery Democracy, and during the war opposed the administration at every point. Mr. Brooks was first elected a Whig to the 31st Congress, re-elected to the S2d and de feated a3 a candidate for the 33d. As a Demo crat he was elected to the 38th Congress in 1862, and has been continued with the excep tion of one term until the present time, and although lie occupied ground entire!/ antag ouistic to that lie occupied at the commence ment ot Ills political life, he was undoubted 1 y the leader of his party in the House. From being an ardent protectionist he had come to be an ultra and even violent free trader; and bora an early abolitionist he bad become the most determined foe of the colored man. The revelations of the Credit Mobilier in vestigation, which showed that lie was more deeply involved in the discreditable affair than any other public man except Oakes Ames, his bold denial of any participation in the matter to the face of the most positive proof, and tire censure of Congress, are fresh in the ^d of every reader. He was in fee. ble health at the time and the shock that this investigation gave his system was too meat for him to withstand. Thejie is a little branch railroad in the in terior of Pennsylvania that is so foolish as not to recognize the autocratic Tom Scott and the great Pennsylvania Central. A few days ago the partisans of Col. Scott destroy ed a part of the road of the little branch com pany as a wholesome warning. Wednesday the minor company sent out a party to repair the ravages of the Pennsylvania Central when its aimed force, two hundred strong met the workmen drove them off and further crippled the road by burning the bridges. Foolish people complain that this way of tearing uj railroads interferes with travel and business but this is of no consequence in the Uingdon of Tom Scott. President Grant in Virginia. The Manassas (Va.) Gazette, a Democratic journal and a supporter of Horace Greeley .a th/Tate campaign, in a recent issue speaks of Cron. Grant and his administrator.in con nection with the troubles in the South in the following temperate and considerate style, which may be commended to the opposition press in general: While many of us differ with Gen. Grant, few will say that the people of Virginia have caurc to complain of his treatment. While the State has presented continually since 18(59, a solid front against the Republican party, President Grant has shown a friendly disposition toward Virginia. We are led to these remarks by seeing the attempts to sad dle the troubles now afflicting some of the Southern States upon “Grant's policy.” If “Grant’s policy” has given those States their trouble,why bus not his policy given Virginia trouble? That a portion ol the South is sorely afflicted, none will deny, and all l>* people must sinceiely regret, “ " p id . see the justice of blaming ®u ie, ,■ .• 83&.«sJjrsg"^» s SteVS* &&m, nphren, wh cb tbc lameuted Greeley so zeaiously labor ed’aiid which was established before Gen. Grant held his present position. As there is no Presidential election pending we will not be accused of trying to influence anybody’s vote. Gen. Grant is to bo our President for the present or the next three and a halt years, and whatever of good or evil Virginia i3 to re ceive at the hands of the General Govern ment is to be received through Grant and his administration. Taking the past as a criterion we think we need have no fears for the future. He has said that he wub not President of the party that elected him, but of the whole coun try. We think we know enough of him to believe he means to deal justly with all, with out regard to politics. The report of the war department of the Dominion of Canada shows that 30,144 offi cers and men were mustered at the various drills in the provinces and that the number attending the camps of instruction for fifteen days was 24,144 This military instruction and equipment cost the people $1,750,000. The ministry, however, estimate but $1,000, 000 for the service the present year, giving as a reason for the reduction, the fact that the Washington treaty recognizes an Internation al Arbitration Tribunal by which all future differences between the United States and Great Britain will be adjusted. The opposi tion papers aver that the Dominion militia is largely on paper and “is used to a great ex tent to cover the withdrawal of large amounts of money from the Treasury for other pur poses.” We can hardly believe this, but agree with these journals that it would he absurd to loek upon this or any military es tablishment of the Dominion as a means of defense against the United Stales which raises armies of millions in a few days, and has a force of trained officers of all grades which it is doubtful are excelled by thoso of any European nation.” A Nashville paper suggests that the democrats adopt the “anti-bond swindle” dodge—a very popular one in the South— with the free trade notion of the ITorM—a suggestion that causes even the New York Herald to exclaim: “Is not one millstone around the neck of the poor democracy enough?” The reduction of the national debt for April i3 $2,247,485.60—a very good showing. Political Notes. The World does not meet with a very cor dial response to its proposition to make the Democracy “a conrisreons free-trade nrona gandism.” The Cincinnati Enquirer the leading Democratic paper of the West says in response: “We don’t think any Democrats ought to be protectionists, but unfortunately the whole party ih Pennsylvania are such, and always have been, with thousands and tens of thousands in New Jersey, New York, Chic, New England and other States. We don’t think it would be hardly expedient to lead out of dur party the whole organization in Pennsylvania. We aro more desirous to read people into the party, just at present, than to order any one to leave.” The Albany Journal says that the State tax of New York last year was nine and three-eighth mills, of which a third, or more than three mills, was to make up a Demo cratic deficiency. This year, with this Dem ocratic legacy out of the way, the tax will be but little over sis mills, and the levy is so carefully adjusted to the actual requirements of the State, that there will ho little or no de ficiency. The Concord Monitor calls upon ex-Con gressman Hibbard, the Democrat recently appointed to the Supreme judgeship by Gov Straw, to emulate the example of Judge Pe ters of Maine, by returning his part of the back pay. . Mr. Itnudall Rises to Explain. To the Editor of the Press: In your issue of 28th inst. I noticed an article referring to myself in whicli the writer (in re ferring to the action of tho Graud Lodge of Good Templars upou the eider question) says: The fact that the gentleman who introduced the resolution and most persistently advocated it in the recent meeting was the same one who, as a member of the committee of tho State Temperauce Convention, to presont its views before the Legislature asked that body to take the very action upon the subject that it did, is passing strange.” Tho writer of the above either did cot know the views I advocated before the Temperauce committee of the Legislature, or he designed to misrepresent me. T did not directly or indi rectly “ask that body to take the very action upon the subject that it did." That action was wholly unexpected to me and I have no doubt to every friend of temperance in Maine. More over this action, if I do not mistake, was not in barmony with either the majority or minority reports of the Temperance Com. 'I have not the proceedings of the Legislature at hand, but if I mistake not, this action was introduced by Mr. Vinton of Gray as an entirely independent measure or as a substitute for both reports.— When tne Committee of the State Temperance Convention appeared before the Committee of the Legislature, 1 expressly stated that the Committee of the State Temperance Conven tion had not time for consultation since their appointment; that they had no measure to rec ommend,but that they wanted such a change of the law of 1872 as would entirely prevent cider selling and cider tippling in the State. I fur i ther said that personally I would prefer that ; the word “cider” should be stricken out of the ; law of 1872, meaning of course section 3 of the ; law (for that was the one under consideration) , and leaving the question to be settled by the ! general provisions of the law upon the subject, ! for section 2 of the law of 1372, and section 22 , of the 27th chapter of the Revised Statutes ! would take care of the question fully. That ! the Legislature did not do, but, on the contrary, | repealed section 2 of the law of 1872. which i amended section 22 of the Revised Statutes, in ! eluding “cider” among the intoxicating liquors. Section 3 of tho same law was also repealed, ana section oi cnapter 17 ot llevisea statutes revived This actiou virtually declares cider i not intoxicating and throws open the indis j criminata sale of cider and wine to any one who pleases to engage in it. This I never asked for. i It is not very important to the temperance cause, whether the “Rev. Mr. Randall took ' this round about method to denounce himself,” ; or “whether lie seriously compromised his con sistency.” The cause will live without him.— ; In a labor of more tha n forty years iu the tem , peracce cause this is the first time I have been accused of inconsistency. But I cau stand it; especially consider! ng the source from whence it : came for, I strougly suspect that the article un der consideration was written by a gentleman i who was present ia the Lodge, and who has ! some sensitiveuess upou the action of the Lodge ; in the case. I>. B. Randall. I Fairfield, April 30,1873. ! [The gentleman’s assumptions as to the au I thorship of the article are entirely erroneous — j The gentlenmu may not prepare his own ser [ inons. but that fact should not lead him to con elude that the editors of tho Pebbs do nor ! write their editorials. As to the letter, lie tm i fortnnately admits all that the article stated. _Ed.] Lincoln Matters. AN IMPORTANT DIVORCE CASE WIIO OWNS SQUIRRELS ISLAND? Wiscasset, May 1,1873. To the Editor Of the Press: There is now on trial in the Supreme Judicial Court before Judge CuttiDg and a jury, the soinewhst celebrated divorce case of Emma G. Call libl’t, vs. Moses Call. The parties live in New Castle, in this county. The defendaut is a physician of large practice, sixty-eight years of age. The libellant is his second wife, is 3G years old, and they have been married about six years. The courtship was of four months duration, and both sides testify that the Doctor kissed his wife but once before marriage, and not many times since, Tho trial attracts great attention, and if in New York or Philadelphia would bo looked up ou as peculiarly novel and sensational. The first week of the marriage was prolific iu tem pestuous scenes and evil foreboding. They | proceeded to Boston upon tlieir bridal tour, which appears to have been unattended with all the charming matrimonial pleasures usually attending such seasons. The trial commenced on Thursday of last week, and will continue longer than this week. Gould & Morse, and Hilton, for Libellant, and S. C. Strout and Judge Converse, for IJr. Call. Much excitement is caused by tbc rumor of the widow of Judge Bruin claiming dower i n Sqnirrell Island, lying sonth of this place. Many elegant cottages have been errectcd on this island. From the nature of the frequent telegrams and letters received, it would appear the island is being well advertised, althqugh a triflo expensive to certain parties. Hon. Ja son M. Carleton of Whitefield, is the retained counsel of Mrs. Bruin, who often relates to onr eager throng the manner of the acquiring of ti tle by Judge Bruin. Lincoln County. Woxdekful I’HOTOGKArHDfo. — Governor Stanford, the owner of the California trotting horse Occident, recently endeavored to secure a photograph of the animal while traveling at full speod. After several failures the photo grapher contrived to have two boards slip past each other by touching a spring,and in so doing to leave an eighth of an inch ojeniug for tho five hundredth part of a second, as the horse passed, and by an arrangement of double lenses, crossed, secured a negative that shows Occident in full motion—a perfect likeness of the horse. The space of time was so small that the spokes of the wheels of tb« sulks were caught as if they were not in motion. This is probably the most wonderful success in photo graphing ever yet achieved, and the artist is as proud, of his discovery as the governor is of the picture taken. Lectures at Bridotox.—A F. T*wU f.an of Fryebui'g has given his four lectures upon his “Trip across the Continent,” and the “Scenery of the Pacific Slope,” before the pupils of Bridgton Academy the present term, to the great pleasure and satisfaction of all.

What Is Vitality f Science 1ms not vet answered this conundrum The principle of life, in spite of tho researches of chemists, doctors and metaphj sicians, remains un known.
