The murder of Deputy Sheriff Hayden and Mr. Hubbard by Cullen has had no parallel for atrocity and fiendishness in our State. The hanging oi the desperate murderer by a disguised band is a disgrace upon the reputa tion of our people. We say our people be cause the settlers of the country about Presque Isle arc very largely from all other parts of the State, and represent all other sections. We can well imagine how such a horror as that committed by Cullen would stir up a sparse population where any stir ring event and the slightest infraction of the peace arc of rare occurrence. We can, also, imagine how a few hundred inhabitants in three or four sparsely settled townships would be indignant and even enraged at the cause less and fiendish m urder of two citizens well known to and respected by every one of them. But the intelligence of the Stale is shocked that, in one of the securest, most temperate and hitherto most law-abiding communities et the State, nearly a hundred men could so ho carried away with the mad frenzy of the hour as to seize that miserable wretch, Cul len, from the officers of the law, and become murderers if not assassins like him by lynch ing him. On the frontier's of civilization, or rather beyond its limits, where there are no courts at all or inefficient ones, where violent men congregate, and human life is little regarded, there may be a possible excuse for mob law; but in no respect can these conditions exist in Maine; the courts are impartial; the pris ons are safe, and there is no reason to believe that the criminal would not expiate his foul crime by suffering the fullest penalty of the law. The advocates of capital punishment, or more strictly speaking that part of those that insist (and evidently take great satisfac tion in so insisting) that hanging is the only punishment for murder,make haste to declare that this blood-thirsty exhibition of mob vio rcuv;c in AiuyjiuuK is ii prutusb iiganidt buu present method of executing the law in this State, and a warning that the abolition of capital punishment would be followed by a repetition of such evidences of violence and savageism. Iu other words, they declare if the murderer is not hung, they will become murderers themselves by hanging him. The men that declare by such acts for capital pun ishment,cannot be those who have the strict est notions of the sacredness of human life, nor do they seem to be moved by a sense of the demands of justice, but by the spirit of revenge. But the assertions of the advocates of the lex laliouis do not hold good. In the Southern States, and particularly in Ken tucky and Missouri, where murderers are cer tain to be hanged, the lynching of criminals is of most frequent occurrence. There is hardly a week passes but what we read o1 the lynching of a person guilty of capital of fence in those States, and certain t» be hung by the due process of law. Indeed, we be lieve that it will be found that there are more cases of lynching in those States where hang ing is the most frequent, and that these ex hibitions of violence are correspondingly rare in States where the gallows are less fre quently used. The violent men in Aroostook the other day did not think of the punishment that awaited Cullen by due course of law. They only saw in him the fiend that murdered two of their best citizens and plunged their fam ilies in woe, What should have been a senss of justice, demanding his punishment by law, became a demon of revenge that demanded satisfaction then and there, and by theii hands. A few weeks ago a man under sen tence of death was taken from a county jai and hung, when his time fixed by law was only a few weeks distant; so the enraged and blood-thirsty men in Chapman plantation would not have been deterred in their violent purpose had it been shown them that the mis erable wretch whose life they sought, would be hung in a month. Doubtless many of the men who partici pated in the hanging of Cuilen are respecta ble citizens; but blinded by their rage, and believing in the maxim of a life for a life, thoughtlessly rushed into this outrage againsi our laws, and disgraced the fair fame of oui State by a deed of violence. They will yel bitterly repent their rash action, now that il is loo late. The general expression of the press rela tive to the sentence of Timothy Horgan, o Boston, to six months imprisonment for as vaulting a fellow horse-shoer because he re fused to join in a strike, is that Judge Dewe; served him right. The strikers have too fre quently displayed a violent and even bruta snirif trtnrnnJa n.A.Un.A,, nrh/, Jr, «Ai a!,aa.< to adopt that policy, and this decisive act ir punishing one for a brutal assault upon s man, because he chose to work rather than he idle, will have a good effect. The right tc labor is as dear as the right to strike,and both should be maintained by the courts.

The Portland Water Company. We learn that the petition of the Portland Water Company for aid to enable it to get iu to a sound financial condition will be present ed to the City C'ounnil to-night. The peti tion is signed by a large number of our lead ing tax-payers, and sets forth the merits and embarrassments of the Company at length. It says in the completion of the work thus far, which has afforded the city the most am ple protection from ffre, the Company has in curred a funded debt of $800,000, and a float ing debt of between $150,000 and $200,000, in addition to the amount paid in for stock, which is not stated. The Company has laid twenty five miles of pipe and is extending its means of supply to differeat parts of the city. The Company is supplying with water free of cost all the public and charitable institutions in the city, and has greatiy aided in introduc ing manufactures, and in all material respects been of incalculable benefit to the city. Al though the receipts of the Company have m increased largely every year and promises to increase at a greater ratio in the next few years if the company shall be enabled to ex tend its works,it has not been able to pay the interest on its bonded and floating debt, and running expenses. In order to enable it to extend its works to every part of the city without embarrassment, the officers of the Company ask such aid from the city for a few' years as the importance of the enterprise merits. The Company do not ask the city for any specified sum, hut after a fullliearing of the merits of the case, expect to be able to show that their prayer will merit the favorable ac tion of the City Council. The matter of securing pure water to all parts of the city is one of so great importance to every citizen that there can be no doubt I uut HiliVl JUUl lUU iW pi UUCUCC UCUlilims | secure so desirable an object, will be extend ! ed, if, after a full hearing, it shall appear that ! the management of the affairs of the eom ; pany warrant its encouragement. Political Notes. The Butler gubernatorial campaign lias opened in Massachusetts by the organiza tion of a Butler Club in Ward 2, Boston. The movement is made without distinction of party, in favor of the liquor interest as ex plained by one of the fuglemen. The New Tork Herald asks: ‘‘Now that the Democratic flee traders propose to read the protectionists out of the party, suppose the protectionists should conclude to read the free traders out? Wlieie will your Dem ocratic party be then?” The Ohio Liberal wants the name of the Democratic party abandoned because of its disloyal associations. The Aroostook Tragedy. VC 1.1. AND AUTHENTIC FAETICULARS OF THE SHOCKING CRIME—THE LYNCHING BY A DIS GUISED MOB. Under the date of May 1st, the Presque Isle Sunrisi extra says: This morning the whole chapter of awful and astounding facts burst upon our community. Terrible as we apprehended the facts te be, the reality excelled even the worst apprehension. We give the narration, as we have with care collected the facts. As soon as it was known at the mil', what bad happened, men started for the camp. On arriving there they found it burned, and all there was to be found of the re mains of Mr. Hayden and Mr. Hubbard were a few bones, all of which would not weigh ten pounds. Some keys which Mr. Hayden had in his pocket were found in the ashes. The men who visited the camp returned to the mill about 9 o’clock in the evening, with what remained of the two men. The camp belonged to Swanback, made of dry cedar logs covered with splits, and occupied for making shingles. According to Swanback’s statement, he was in his camp when Cullen came there towards night, Monday. Early in the evening Mr. Hayden arrived with Hubbard and Bird in pursuit of Cullen. Mr. Hayden having travelled some miles on snowslioes, and was much exhausted, decided to stop at the camp until morning. Previous to his retiring to sleep lie took Cullen out of doors and told him that he had a warrant for his arrest, as it is supposed he would bo frightened and leave the country. They all, however, lay down to sleep. About daylight Swanback was aroused by bearing blows, which proved to be Cullen I Infliptinnr Klnu*e linnn flia imiwAtia Af« 11 dpn and Hubbard. It is impossible to know just what the wounds were, but they were, no doubt, what a strong and perfectly reckless and desperate man could inflict with a sharp axe upon two defenceless men sleeping side by side. Swanback seeing what was going on fled from the camp. Bird, who is a mere boy, attempted to follow him, but was met by Cullen with axe uplifted, when Bird said, “do not kill me,” upon which he dropped his axe replying, “I will not if you do as I tell you ana not tell about tbis.” He then placed the two dead bodies upon the fire which had been burning during the night, (it is common in these camps to keep a fire through the night). Cullen then piled dry hard wood upon them, with quite a quantity of dry cedar, rolled cut some barrels of flour and pork belonging to Swanback, and setting the camp on fire left in company with Bird and Swanback, all the time threatening that if they informed of him lie would kill them. Having got nearly out of the woods, they got away from him and gave the alarm. Cullen was found about ten o’clck in the forenoon, in the cellar ofJSamuel Williamson’s house in Castle Hill, at which place is his wife and child. He was brought to Ball’s Mill, where he made a full confession of all he had done, and said repeatedly: “He was glad he had done so.” About nine o’clock in the even ing, what could be found of the remains were brought to the mill village, and Cullen, in view of what lie had done, said: “He was glad he had killed those he had, and would kill Swan back and Bird if he could.” The people had become terribly exasperated with him. About ten o’clock, B. J. Hughes, constable of Mapleton, who had Cullen in his keeping, with a guard of six men, amoii" whom were Dr. Parker and James Pliair of this vil lage, started for this place with the prisoner. About one-half mile this side of the mill, and seven miles from this village, they were sud denly surrounded, as Dr. Parker judges, by seventy-five men in disguise, who seized and held Mr. Hughes, also the Doctor and others of the guard, and seizing Cullen, dragged him out of the wagon and a very short distance into the woods, and hung him to a tree. Dr. Parker says it was all the work of a very few minutes, nor could any one tell who were the perpetra tors. A circle was formed around him so that no one could approach him until he was dead, when he was put into a box and brought to this village. This terrible tragedy, which in all its horrors was never equaled probably in New England, has cast a gloom over our village and town, never before known. Mr. Hayden was one of our best citizens, who has lived in this town from his childhood, universally respected and beloved. He leaves a wife and child, father, mether, and numerous other relatives. He was of the firm of Hayden & Pratt, merchants, had been for years a Deputy Sheriff, faithful and true in all the relations of life, and we could hardly lose a more valuable citizen. His age was 30 years. Mr. Hubbard was recently from St. Albans, in Somerset county. He had taken up land in Chapman, for the purpose of making a farm, and was Icnnwn t,n manr r*f mr /dti-rono oo a very worthy young man. We hear that he was the only support of a widowed ir.o!lier. His age was about 25 years, Cullen, who was twenty-seven years of age, was from New Brunswick, and belongs to a family of rough and hard men. It is said his reputation was very had in the Province, and that he came here because he could not safely remain there. He has been in the vicinity of the place where he committed the crime some two years. Those who knew him best say he was regarded by them as a reckless and danger ous man. Those who knew less about him re garded him as quiet and inoffensive. Probably Mr. Hayden had no idea of his reckless charac ter, or he would not have afforded him the op portunity to commit the dreadful dead. We cannot close our account of the terrible tragedy without putting on record our earnest condemnation of the summary vengeanoe which has been inflicted upon Cullen. For him per sonally we care not a straw. We share in the deep grief of our whole community over the death of the worthy and good. We sympathize as deeply as any one with the family and friends of our murdered neighbor and townsman. But nothing can justify or excuse any person be coming one of a mob for the purpose of taking the life of another in cold blood, however val ueless or dangerous that life may be. Amidst the oppressive sorrow under which we write, we have a ray of pleasure in saying that no citizen of Presque Isle is suspected of being a party to that mob. It was done seven miles from this village. Who they were, we have not the remotest idea, and personally we wish never to know. But we hope (that when this excitement shall he allayed, aud men s minds shall become capable of sober reflection, that our Sheriff, County Attorney, Attorney General and Courts will vindicate the laws our State, and teach lawless men of every class that they cannot take human life with impuni ty! ' _ _ Tiie Spuing Trade.—The New York Bulk tiu says that, thus far, the spring trade has not been satifactory to the jobbing bouses of t at City. The commission firms (at least those in the dry goods trade) appear to have done about an average business; but among the houses which distribute to the retail trade, the transac tions fall below expectations._ An Iowa farmer living about ten miles north of Burlington, has recently ploughed up a stone axe weighing ten pounds, and a stone knife aud chisel, all of which implements are of much larger size than any of the many simi 1 lar Indian relics that have been unearthed with* • in the memory of the oldest settlers in that | State. The Grand Trunk Accident.—A gentle man wlxo was on the Grand Trunk train that was wrecked Friday morning, gives us the fol lowing particulars: The accident occured at 5.45 Friday morniug 27 miles cast of Montreal, when the train was on a down grade and be hind time, and consequently at a high speed, The embankment was twenty feet high where the train went off and the Pullman train rolled over once and a half, clear off the limits of the road The cars were thoroughly smashed. It was said that there were 32 passengers on hoard the train, but only 27 were to be found after the accident. Many of the passengers were badly injured, and two probably fatally. Conductor Stevens of the Portland & Ogdens burg was considerably bruised. Mr. Grace,who is employed in the Treasurers office here, and his wife, were slightly bruised. One Bangor man was also somewhat injured. It is said that the accident was caused by a freight car getting off the track and running four or five miles without being discovered, and when it was no one was sent back to examine the track and make repairs. Fire in Boston.—The following are the losses reported at a fire in Portland and Cause way streets Boston, early Saturday morning: John F. Keating, planing mill, who owned the building, loss nearly $16,000; insured for $3,550 in five different offices. Alonzo Boivers, carpenter and builder, loss on machinery, $1, 500, stock and building, $3,000; insured for $5, 000. Wm. A. Holmes, grocer, loss $2,500; in sured for $2,300 as follows: N arragansett $1,000; City of Providence, $650; First National of Worcester, $625. K. P. Putnam, liquor dealer, loss $1,000; insured for $600. L. C Durkec, saloon, loss about $1,500; has no insurance.

Rowell, wheelwright, loss $200, insured. W. W. Smith lost a wagon worth $200 which was not insured. T. H. Howard, cabinet maker, had a large stock of finished work, which was destroyed, loss $4,000. John Godfrev. cabinet maker, lost $1,500; insured for $500. Alonzo Ledyard, manufacturer of irregular moulding, lost $1, 500; no insurance. Several other occupants lost small amounts, including Humphrey & Chism, McClellan Brother, E. Beard, all cabi net makers. Colby University.—The order of exercises for the next Commencement will be as follows: Sunday Evening, July 20th, Sermon before the Boardman Missionary Society, by Itev. Dr. Murdoch of Boston. Monday Evening, July 21st, Prize Declama tion of the Junior Class. Tuesday Evening, July 22d, Oration before the Literary Societies, byKev. Mr. Pentecost of Boston.

Thursday, Exercises of the Graduating Class. Evening, Concert, music by the Mendelssohn Quintette Club, assisted by Mrs. J. Houston West. A Brakeman Injured.- It is our sad duty to chronicle another ease of accident produc ;d unquestionably by carelessnest. Lase Saturday as an inward bound freight train was passing a covered bridge between South Gardiner and Richmond, a young man, brakeman on the traTu, was standing on top of a box car, when his head came in contact with the bridge and he was knocked off the car. He was picked up and found to have sustained serious internal injuries. He was carried to Brunswick where he belonged. We were unable to learn his name. __ The Boston Consolidation. Portland, May 3, 1873. 2b the Editor of the Press: In your paper of Saturday you say that full examination of the report of the hearing of the Eastern and Boston & Maine Railroads upon the bill for consolidation before the Massachu setts Legislature, “leads to the conclusion that the B. & M. only became a party to the bill in order to secure as unobjectionable a measure as possible,” etc. The bill referred to was origi nated by neither of the above named compa nies, but the consolidation of those roads has been recommended over and over again by the Railroad Commissioners of Massachusetts. The proposed consolidation is probably as much de sired by the Boston & Maiae as by the Eastern Railroad, and it is perhaps safe to say that it is not upon principle that either would reject it, the question with both being one of terms. The same measure was before the Legislature of Massachusetts last year, and then it was oppos ed by the President of the Eastern Raitroad The ninth section of the bill now pending pro vides that the consolidated company may lease connecting roads, or substantially that, and to that the Boston & Maine agreed. The Boston & Maine did not want the bill passed so as to authorize but one of the Boston roads to lease these roads. The Boston & Maine can claim no advantage over its rival as a champion for the people. One of the People. sens anu timer 1 lems. Vesuvius is threatening again. Charles Sumner declines his hack pay. The name of Chief-Justice Chase has been given to a city in Virginia. Strawberries and peaches are promised in abundance this season. Major William S. Worth with 200 men from Governor’s Island, New York harbor, left last Thursday for the Modoc region. Spurgeon is not coming to America to lec ture, because “he won’t degrade himself nor disgrace hi»congregation.” Superintendent Kelso of New York lias or dered the police to make a census of all disrep utable houses and characters in the city. A gi gantic undertaking. Overtures have been made to Mr. Morpliy to induce him to join in a grand chess tournament which it is proposed to hold at the Vienna Ex position. A bill is before the Dominion Parliament regulating the amount of deck load which may be carried by sea-going vessels, the home gov ernment having set the measure on foot. Many of the cardinals in the Boman Catholic churches have reached extreme old age, Billiet is 90; De Angelis, 81;Catermi, 78; Amat, 7G; Grassellint, 77; Mathieu, 77; Antonucci, 75; Patrizi, 75. It is now proposed to construct a navigable channel between the North and East rivers, New York, by way of the Harlem, and it is predicted that this will make Harlem the great commercial centre of the city. A large number of excursion parties will make the tour of Europe this summer from America. They will number from ten to one hundred and fifty each, and the expense of members will be from $400 to $1000 in gold. Albert Fortune, the notorious horse thief, desperado and convict, captured in Baltimore, Saturday, was manacled and placed on a train in charge of officers, but he escaped by jumping off when going twenty-five miles an hour, and cannot be found. Up at Concord, N. H., they want to know if ale is intoxicating, and in a recent trial a man was called as an expert, who said he had drauk thirty or forty glasses of ale in a day, and thought he might lie able to drink a pail full. Connecticut people will be interested by the ‘•American news,” recently published in the T.cmtnn G rn nh i e to the effect that “the Demo crats have carried their candidate, Ingersol), for the governorship of Philadelphia by three thousand votes.” During the exhibition of a menagerie in Poughkeepsie, last week, a monkey seized hold of the curl of one of the lady spectators and dragged her entire chignon and bonnet into the cage, greatly to the amusement of the look ers on. In the Pennsylvania coal trade the total an thracite tonnage for the past week amounted to 372,576 tons, and for the coal year to 4,413, 786 tons, against 4,422,980 tons to correspond ing time last year, being a decrease of 9,194 tons. ‘‘A petrified Indian, billed to Yale College,” was among the Eastern Express matter which passed through Des Moines, Iowa, last Thurs day, the body having been discovered and dug up in the bluffs on the North Platte, last sum mer. A young woman in Cumberland, England, lately threw herself in front of a railway train and was killed. Her conduct was attributed to to a love quarrel. Two weekc later her suitor followed her example and was killed in the flame way. It is not true that the Eastern Itaiiroad has paid or agreed to pay $25,000 to Palmer, the postal car clerk, who was injured at Seabrook. The case of Jeff. C. Row vs. Eastern Railroad, for injuries received at the Revere disaster, is now assigned for trial in Portsmouth at the October term of Court. The average annual earnings of the whole American people do not exceed $800 a year each. The average earnings of the employed classes do not exceed $1000. The average earn ings of those holding salaried employments do not exceed $1500. The average earnings of the learned professions do not exceed $2500. The grinders at the East Douglas axe works are all Canadian French; no American will ac cept the employment at any price on account of the great risk of life. Most of the grinders live from 2 to 10 years, some for a longer period, but very few can endure the work longer than 15 years; they either die of what is known in the region as “grinder’s consumption,” or arc killed by a bursting stone. Their wages aver age from to $8 a day, being higher than most other manual labor, on account of the risk to life. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTV.

What Is Vitality f Scienco has not yet answered this conundrum The principle of life, in spito of the researches of chemists, doctors and metaphysicians, remains un known. 5Ve know, however, that when the blood is impure, the stomach inert, the bowels irregular, the liver disordered, or the nerves relaxed, this life sus taining princlpio, whatever it may be, is shorn of its active power and that the body it animates languish os. We know, too, such of us are capable of deriving knowledge from authenticated tacts, that Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters correct impurities of the blood, in vigorate the stomach, regulate the bowels, tonic the liver and brace the nerves, thereby combatting and subduing the leading morbid condition which tend to shorten life. The average time of humam existence might unquestionably be greatly lengthened by judi cious stimulation, especially in the decline of life, and this famous preparation is undoubtedly the mostw holesome stimulant at present known.

I have tried many remedies for this complaint, and never found so [much relief as from the Veuetine. It strengthens and invigorates the whole system. Many of my acquaintances have taken it, and I be lieve it to be good for all the complaints for which it is recommended. Yours truly, JOSIAII II. SHERMAN. Would Give a Dollar for a Dose. Boston, May 30, 1871. H. R. Stevens, Esq. : Dear Sir—I have been badly afflicted with Kidney Complaint for ten years; have suffered great pain iu my back, hips, ana side, with great difficulty iu pass ing urine, which was often and in very small quanti ties, frequently accompanied with blood and excru ciating pain. I have faithfully tried most of the popular reme dies recommended for my complaint; I have been un der the treatment of some of the most skilful physi cians in Boston, all of whom pronounced my case in curable. This was my condition when I was advised by a friend to try the VEGETINE, and I could seo the good effects from the first dose I took, and from that moment I kept on improving until I was entire ly cured, taking hi all, I should think, about six bot It is indeed a valuable medicine, and, if I should bo afliicted again in the same way, 1 would give a dollar for a dose, if I could not get it without. Respectfully, .T. m. GILE. 361 Thirl St., So. Boston. Diseases of the 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 tho kidneys arise from impurities in iho blood, causing humors which settle on these parts. VEGETINE excels any known remedy in tho whole world for cleansing and purify ing the blood, thereby causing a healthv action to all the organs of the body. RECOMMEND IT HEARTILY. South Boston, Feb. 7,1870. H. R.Stevens: Dear Sir—I have taken several bottles of your VEGETINE, and am convinced it is a valuable rem edy for Dyspepsia, Kidney Complaint, and general debility of the system. I can heartily recommend it to all suffering from the above comolaiuts. i ours respectfully, MRS.
