The New Steamer Circassian.—The new steamer recently built for the Allan line is elaborately described in the last number of the Liverpool Post. She is fitted up with every convenience, and has a carrying capacity of 1,000 steerage and 90 cabin passengers. With reference to the cabin passengers everything that can in reason he done has been accomplish ed for their convenience. They have in the first place a splendid saloon of sixty-five feet iu length, and for the most part of the entire width of tbe ship. Around the saloon are sofas of crimson velvet, and seats of similar kind are placed at the tables, which are covered with handsome crimson cloths. The part of the mizen mast which passes through the fore part oi the saloon, is handsomely mirrored; elegant swinging lamps, with arms and fittings of sil ver, depend from the ceiling; the walls are panelled with oak and gilt beading, the panels being occasionally interspersed with mirrors Bet in gold frames. More important and not less generally inter esting, however, is the manner in which the steerage and intermediate passengers are pro vided for, and here the results of large experi ence are plainly seen. These passengers are accommodated upon the main decks in berths which are much more liberally arranged with regard to space than the Act of Parliament re quires. _ The Hampton Colored Students.—These sweet vocalists will make their first appearance in Liiy nan next j.nursuay evening. ncare happy to announce an entertainment of so great merit in our columns, and we trust our people will turn out in large numbers.

The company numbers seventeen and they make a beautiful chorus. They have a little hoy and girl with them who are very fine singers. Inspection of a Steamer.—Saturday af ternoon Capt. .1. W.

She leaves for Boston to-niglit. Narrow Escape from Drowning.—Satur day evening a man named Thomas McGinnis lell off the drawer of the Boston & Maine Rail road bridge and drifted to tlie piling between the two bridges. His outcry aroused the draw tender, who could not get him out, when he alarmed the neighborhood, aud a large number of men arriving, lie was rescued with the aid of a rope and a boat after being in the water over half an hour. The man was much chilled and is a railroad laborer. The Storm Signal.—The reason why no storm signal was displayed Friday announcing the approach of this storm, is because the des patch from Washington ordering it, was not re ceived till twenty-four hours after it was sent. 1 thought this explanation was due to those who depend upon those signals, and to the repu tation of the Signal Service. A. B. IV illiams, Observer in charge. Ckurch Notes. Rev. 1. Luce delivered a farewell sermon at the Chestnut street church yesterday forenoon Ho took his text from the 118tli Ps , 25th verse His subject was the development of a church The object of a church organization is to save the imperishable soul. A minister is the moutl: piece of God. Holiness is not the end of Chris tian work. The church must go out to men in the scum of society and lift them up. But one out of twenty live are saved unless connected with church organizations. The church must be a unit that prescribes all animosity and sel fishness. The most devilish thing on earth is a church divided against its members. There was a time when Methodism cost nothing, but now it requires money. No church can bo Christlike unless benevolent We must care for the children. If men regarded the church as uo longer the rich man’s church but their Father’s house, the church would be crowded every Sunday. In conclusion, he urged renew ed activity on the part of the church, and refer ! red pleasantly to his three years’ connection with the church and people. . Lev. A. K. P. Small delivered yesterday morn ing at I rec street Baptist Church, an able ser mon on “False and true jirosperity.” This church have abolished the practice of taking up a collection at their Sunday School concerts. Rev. Dr. Hill of the First Parish, preached on Sabbath evening on the authorship of the Gospel of St. John aud the Book of Revela tions, entering into an argument to prove that both books were written by St. John the Evan gelist. Rev. W. H. Fcun gave his people a lino ser _o.. _ i_c _ . IT?r.*—fpnm Tin. UIVU MUUUIIJ AV1VUUUU «*V --7 seaG: 3, on the aualogy between the beauties of Nature as seen in the opening spring, and the glory of a developing Christian character. The sermon abounded in felicitous periods. Eev. E. Y. Hincks of the State street Con gregational church, delivered a discourse Sun day evening founded on John 8: 24. “If ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins.” Eev. Dr. Shailer of the First Baptist church, baptized on Saturday evening last iu the church, eight ladies and three gentlemen. Sunday fore noon the Doctor delivered a powerful sermon from Heh. 10: 20, on the consistency of faith. An Old Land Mark Gone.—That sectior of a city where progress and improvement hold dominiou, always undergoes marked changes. Few of our citizens will recollect that the old one story house situated at the ex treme foot of Brackett street on the westerly side, and now being demolished, was once the toll house to Portland bridge. Yet for twenty seven years such was the fact. It was built for that purpose, and until 1851, when the bridge became a free bnidge, the sign board with its rates of toll held dominion over th< thoroughfare. The incorporators of the bridge company received their charter in January 1823, and the bridge was built that same year As a matter of historic interest we give the names of the incorporators, nearly all o: whom have passed away from earthly ■senes: Silvanus Higgins, E. Jordan, \V, Gregg, E, Dyer, Elias Thomas, J. Neal, T. Eohison, E. Ilsley, A. W. Tinkham, H. Ils ley, and J. Mussey, Jr. The toll house was built in 1823 by the proprietors of Antho ny Brackett’s dower, and with four rods square of laud on which the house was situated was deeded Nov. 10th, 1823 to the incorpora ters by Thomas Beck iu behalf of the proprie tors. The following is the language of the deed: “Conveying in fee a lot of land fora toll house to be four rods square, on the south-westerly side of Brackett street and adjoining said bridge, for the considera tion of fifty dollars.” All passage over the bridge was then from the foot of Brackett street. On January 0th, 1851, the bridge was surren dered to the county and became free. The county in 1855 lowered the grade of the north cud to a level with Colhmercial street and oth erwise improved the bridge, so that passage from Brackett street to the bridge ceased. This act, however, did not affect the right of lb* county to a claim upon Brackett street for an outlet, as the charter was “in perpetuo.” The toll house was then sold to Samuel Tyler and W. W. Thomas, who afterwards sold to other parties, so that until recently it has been occu pied as a dwelling. At the time it was built it was the only building in that neighborhood and the waters of Fore river washed the base of the bauk on which it stood. For many years James Townsend was the toll keeper. Sunday morning at the Chestnut street Meth odist church fourteen persons were baptized and three admitted to the church. Sunday after noon two were baptized by Eev. Mr. Luco, pas tor of the Chestnut street church, iu the water at Back Cove. Tho Chestnut street church have secured as the successor of Eev. Mr. Luce, the Eev. Mr. Jeuesof Newton, Mass., from the New Eng. land Conference. He will preach his first ser. inon next Sabbath. Drowned.—Capt. Alfred Burns, owner and master of schooner Langammon, of Waldobo ro, while passing down Commercial wharf to his vessel about 10 o’clock Saturday night, stumbled and struck his head aaainst the mail boom of another vessel and fell overboard. Tht blow must have rendered him insensible as lit made no effort to save himself and was drowned. The noise caused by his striking the boom and falling into the water was heard, and search was made. In about one hour the body was re covered. Coroner Gould held au inquest ant the verdict was “accidental drowning.” The remains were taken to Waldoboro yesterday. where he leaves a wife and three children. Exports per Allan Line or Steamers.— Herewith we give the value of the exports from this port per British steamers.

Sorno boys from your city built a lire May day on Mount Holy which was fortunately dis covered by Mr. Brackett the proprietor before it reached bis residence. Mount Holy in 1756 was thought to cover an immense coal bed. Edward Weston, Walter Simonton and others formed themselves into a company to work it. They dug soveral days and whilst off to dinner the side of the excava tion caved in and covered up the tools left. In 1834, the Portland and Cape Elizabeth coal and Railroad company, with right to build a rail road from Mount Holy to tide water and to mine for coal, was incorporated by the Legisla ture. The companywas organized but could not raise the necessary funds to carry on the work.
