A Bit of History—Capt. James Brooks, father of the member of Congress by the same name,whose death was announced Wednesday, was a native of England and was for several years a worthy shipmaster of Portland. His last cruise was as captain of the private armed sloop Yankee, a unique craft, modeled by John H. Hall, the inventor of the breech loading rifle which was adopted by our United States War Department. The sloop had a flat bot tom with a keel six feet deep. She sailed from Portland in June 1814. On Sunday July 10th, the Portuguese armed ship San Jose Indiana, with a cargo most of Which was British goods, came in as a prize to the Yankee. The armament of this ship was in the September following, transferred by the Portland ltiile Corps, to the dismantled brig Boxer, which placed the brig in position to de fend Vaughan’s bridge from a threatened at tack by the enemy. The capture of this prize by Capt Brooks was the last that was heard of him or his vessel. Her deep keel probably caused her to founder in a storm. Capt. Brooks left a son and daughter—James and Eliza, who afterwards married a Mr. Marsh, of New York. The second son, Erastus, now of the New York Express was born several months after his father sailed. The orphan children drew au annuity from the United States naval pension fund and were cared for by their mother and their guardian, the late David Trull. W. G. Windham, May 2.

The West Point Appointment.—Several of our Portland boys will be pleased to learn that Congressman Bnrleigh has signified his intention of nominating to the West Point ca detship, the young man who shall pass the most successful examination before a commit tee that he shall name. This action on the part of Mr. Burleigh, is highly creditable to his generosity and sense of justice to a largo class of worthy young men, who have to depend up on themselves, as well in the interest of the ser vice which will secure better officers by this method of selection. The time, place and names of the examining committee will be named at an early day.

Haw ley oi Connecticut, responuea to tne toast ot “legislationupon commerce” as follows: I have been looking to the expression of this body with a great deal of interest, and if I had time I should like to talk upon a topic of so very great value—a topic in which you are all as merchants interested-the topic of hard mon ey. It seems to me, from what study I have beeu ablo to give to the political condition of the country and its legislative needs, that there is no subject of greater importance to us than that of our currency. I am a hard money man; I don’t believe in a lying paper currency. That which we have in our pockets says the United States will pay one, five or ten dollars for it, but the United States has not done so within ten years and they don’t try to do so. We are waiting, it is said, for rhe country to grow up to hard money. Meanwhile there is not a branch of interest that is not suffering. The manufacturer suffers, the importer suffers, the western farmer suffers and the mechanics and laborers suffer. We need a fixed and stable currency. The interests of the industrious de mand it. The Chamber of Commerce has said what is right on the subject and the influence of its members can be beneficially exercised in assisting national legislation to bring about the desired end. The Atlantic Dank. Receiver Strong of the Atlantic National Bank reports that $301,000 iu securities are missing. The liabilities are set down at $1, 027,300, the assets os which are $301,000 short. It may be further changed by new developments in the investigation. City Appointments. It is rumored that a combination has been made in the board of Aldermen to defeat all the nominations made by Mayor Havcmeyer unsatisfactory to them, three republicans, four Tammany democrats and one Appolo Hall be ing the parties. It is also asserted no provision having been made in the new charter for re tention of Mayor Havemeyer as in the case of heads of departments, he will go out of office with the expiration of the old charter. Concert Saloons. The Grand Jury to-day made a presentment on the subject of the suppression of concert saloons, in which they say the excise licenses shield the proprietors, and oaly the owners of the premises are liable to criminal prosecution and punisbment. The Number of the Grog Shops. The figures just presented by the excise Board, show that during the year ending April 30tb, no less than 8,061 licenses to sell liquors were issued. This averages one drinking place to every 120 of the population. Suicide. Col. W. A. Cameron, who during the war commanded the 5th U. S. Artillery, committed suicide to-day because of his removal from the HiiefAm TTaiioa T'Iapouanil trJiA ia aoiil Ia o relative of Gen. Burnside, was at the time de ranged in consequence of a wound.

Mr. Ordway,Sergeant-at-Arms of the House, in view of the fact that the late James Brooks was one of the oldest members in service elect ed to the 4:3d Congress, and following the pre cedent in the case of the late Thaddeus Stev ens who died in Washington during the recess, has tendered in behalf of the House, an escort to take charge of the remains till after the fun eral ceremonies in New York city.

The case of same parties against ship Metropolis and others is next to be heard. The Ciril Service. Kon. Samuel Shellabarger has signified his acceptance of the appointment as a member of the Civil Service Commission. The Vienna Commissioners. Several days ago a telegram was published, the fact having been obtained from official sources, giving the names of eleven gentlemen of the original Vienna Commission who are free of the charge of irregularity. The na nes of the other three Commissioners who' are im plicated iu the charges of improperly receiving money are William Mayer, Robert Sergeant and A. E. Sliasny, together with Chief Com missioner Van Buren. So far the telegrams have only been received by this government, but a full report is expected in a few days. It is understood that all these commissioners were appointed on the recommendation of General Van Buren before Congress made an appropria tion to defray the expenses attending the Amer icau display at the expositiou, and that he was cautioned to be particular in the designations. Gen. Van Buren will, however, have a fair op portunity to bo heard in reply to whatever charges have been made against him, when,- it is hoped, he will be able to establish his inno cence. The statement made heretofore that the Gen6 v act!Sn °f the Secretary of State against Va“ Buren originated in uufriendly per thpse Slons has no foundation in fact, as previous toth*6? .ha<1 beeu pleasantly intimate present" inJ?*l 'ato. scandalous disclosures.

Besides these objections to Mr. Delong it was thought some person should be appointed whe would more faithfully represent the United States in Japan. The President will, on his return, ap point a successor. THE Mebftb WAR.

Perley is the man who challenged Broderick, out of which grew the fatal duel between Terry and Broderick iu Cal ifornia.

London, May 2.—In the Tichborae trial to day French tutors of Sir Robert Tichborne were examined, and gave testimony which is re- ■ garded as fatal to hopes of claimants. The American Question ia Parliament In the House of Commons Lord Hamilton called attention to the nature .of reference to the treaty of 1846, which under the treaty of Washington was submitted together with the North-western boundry question te the decis ion of the German Emperor.- .He regretted that the English govertttoent-had allowed lipon that part of the' Oregon treaty an interpertra tion fatal to the just claims'of England. Ro sarij) strait tong after 1846, was theonlv known navigable channel between Oregon and Van couver’s Island, and hence was undoubtedly the ! channel indicated in the treaty of 1846; yet the government with unhappy ingenuity excluded the arbitrators from the consideration of this particular channel. • He ■ found no fault with Emperor Will am. He thought that the Gene va arbitrators would' have acted more wisely had they anticipated tnis method; and confined themselves to rendering their.. decision without giving reasons therefor. Lord Hamilton'said he would make no mo tion, and only deserved to obtain from the House such an expression of opinion as wonid discourage the making of treaties hereafter on the “give all and take nothing*’ principle. Capt. Bailie Cochrane sdid Earl Granville’s foreign policy had always been the reverse of that of Aberdeen, Palmerston,- Russell and Stanley. Ii had recently given to Russia 600 miles of frontier in Asia. Negotiations with the Usited States had been pursued in accord ance with the same policy of consideration and humilation. Viscount Enfield, undersecretary for the For eign Department defended Earl Granville, and vindicated the coursebe had taken. The north western bonnday question wes an intricate one, and none was better adapted for arbitration. He traced the history of the boundry negotia tions and final settlement. As an Englishman he regretted the decision, but he cheerfully and ungrudgingly accepted it. Hon. Percy Wyndham regarded the Emper or’s decision as a natural one because conces sions in the Washington treaty excluded evi *xr!e ?;hich In‘£ht have led to different result. Mr. Eastwick thought the government should t if on a striot adherence to the terms or the treaty of 1846 in which the word “mid channel” was plainly used. Viscount Bury conld not but feel that the ’Emperor’s decision was a serious blow, but thatit would be a waste of time to reopen the negotiation, probably arbitration woud soon be required- again to settle the boundary Hue between Alaska and British Columbia. Lord John Manners said the-'- r overnment was unwise in consenting to restrict instead of open orpitrauon. ., kfr. Gladstone Contended that restricted ar bitration was better than none. While the English had been defeated, he showed that ar bitration had removed the causes of irritation and restored friendliness between two great nations. The subject was then dropped. Various Matters. The Turkish government lias ordered 400,000 rifles iv the United States. The trouble between the Latin and Greek monks at Bethlehem has partially subsided and order is restored. The Porte leaves the guilty unpunished, but Kussia demands their punishment. Hopes are expressed that the great powers will now settle the dispute about the custody of the holy places out of which this scandal arose, but they hesitate to approreli a question of so delicate a character. Mexican Neva. Matamokas, May 1.—The New York Herald correspondent at the City of Mexico says that that the treaty is progressing; that the treaty claims of the Commission have been approved by Congress; that Manual Seamacain has been appointed Commissioner; that the administra tion party has elected its Congress for May: that Losada is losinz ground daily, but is not yet captured.
