T HE P EE S S. TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 6, 1873. Ivv.iRY regular attache of the Press is furnished ^Ua^ ««^i^rtHicato countersigned by Stanley T. 1*u'tten, Editor. All railway, steamboat and liote managers, will confer a favor upon us by demanding cred-iitlals nf every person claiming to represent our Jour.ial, as we have information that several ‘‘bum mers” are seeking courtesies in the name of the Fkess, and we have no disposition to be, even pas sively. a party to such fraud. \V,|„ uot read anonymous letters and ouiumuui I he name and address oftlie wr.teraro in *n esses in iispo ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. Wi cannot undertake to return or ro erve com ic miiaauoiw that are uot used. The Murder of James Cullen. The example of the crazy idiot, Cullen, in chopping off the heads of his captors is one that never could inspire any normal intellect with a feeling of emulation. Universal hor ror and execration were the iustant effects ot that monstrous butchery. Murder itself, ac quired a blacker hue from the unrelieved atrocity of its latest exploit. The terrible na ture ot Cuhcu’s offense and his prompt arrest, to be followed in the natural course of events by an impartial trial, conviction and the pun ishment which the laws of the State provide tor tbs worst offenders, were circumstances calculated io give rise in all minds to a health ful appreciation of the sacredness of human life, and the certainty of retribution for crime, alulae ;0 net a State where the murderer has escaped punishment through legal technicali ties, the tricks of able counsel, or the modern doctrine of “emotional insanity.” Does any apologist for James Cullen’s hundred or more murderers happen to thiuk of any instance in the judicial annals of Maine where there has been a clear failure of substantial justice in case of a homicide? " “ ’ her* itftnSws , o-J 7-j against those who have shed blood ? There is every reason to believe, then, that all the requirements of justice would have been sat isfied as the result of a legal criminal prosecu tion, if the Presque Isle butcher had been left in the hands of the authorities. And how does the murder of the murderer by a mob affect the situation ? Murder is a harsh word to apply to the acts of persons, who are, perhaps, most of them, men of aver age respectability. But as harsh words are the worst that they are likely to suffer, and as they have received in advance full indem nity for even these, in words of fervent eulo gy and unqualified commendation, it is not improper for us to call their act just what the laws of the State call it—murder, and murder in the first degree. But instead of exciting the same aversion and horror as the savage Cullen's demoniac work, this murder is regarded by large numbers of our fellow citizens as not only heroic but virtuous. The actors in the second tragedy are pointed out, not as monsters of iniquity, but as men whose example is to be imitated. Here is murder vaunting itself—murder putting on airs! Wanton as the deed was—without an excuse that could satisfy the scruples of the weakest intellect—its perpetrators and their admirers expect our applause. -It will be difficult for the most adroit advocate of stran gulation to make even a plausible defense for this unauthorized application of their favorite panacea. The gooa of society cannot cer tainly be subserved by familiarizing it with such scenes as the hanging up of Cullen without even the formality of a mock' trial. Instead of teaching the young that life is sa cred, such a transaction teaches them that a man’s life is worth no more than a dog's, and that it may properly be taken without the smallest precau tion against mistake or injustice. By no other means could respect for law and the security for life and property which it gives be so surely and speedily broken down. If the hundred of Presque Isle may judge of ■Cullen's guilt and may doom him to instant death, they may judge of any other man’s oflense and may doom him, too, and the more thoughtless or vicious of the hundred would not be slow, we may be sure, to avai themselves of their newly discovered immu nity. If the Presque Isle hundred may usm-p the functions of courts and officers of the law, so may any other hundred or fifty or ten, and so on till anarchy prevails throughout the State. And for every desper ado appalled by the swift retribution overtak ing his fellows, the incipient criminality, hardness of heart and general recklesness of ten others would be stimulated and confirm ed by witnessing bloodshed, participating in i}s excitement, and receiving the plaudits of tbe advocates of strangulation. It may be said that the infrequency of crimes like nat of Cullen furnishes a perfect safeguard against the repetition of Lynch law violence. There is a men living in Auburn in the en joyment of liberty and, as we understand, of the esteem of his neighbors. Six years ago the people of Auburn felt as certain that Terrill killed two .unprotected old women, with such additional circumstances of out rages and cruelty as made the homicide the foulest and most maddening in the history of Maine, as the people of Presque Isle are that they know the assassin of Sheriff Ilayden. A few weeks afterwards the Stales Attorney entered a not pros in the case of this same man, and his innocence is now generally con ceded. It would have been rather a hard ship for Terrill if there had been in Auburn a hundred men as reckless and impatient as those of Presque Isle. We can imagine no stronger case to illus trate the immense risk of mistake incurred by those who take the law into their own hands, than Terrill's universal conviction in the hearts of his neighbors, followed by his legal and subsequently by his popular acquit tal. It Is nothing to the purpose to say that the law, as now administered, does not treat murderers with sufficient severity. The law and its ad in i u is t rat ion conform to the delib erate opinion of a majority of the people ex pressed in due and legal form. It is some thing more than nullification for a hundred men in any part of Maine to push it aside, and set up a Draco’s code of their own in its stead, and that, too, on the spur of the mo. meat. We may be wrong, but from a remark made by the Kennebec Journal, we infer that it approves of the consolidation of all the rail roads east of Boston, by the Massachusetts utjj.uiinuiv mat um UUl UUIJ IUC building of a competing line between Bangor and Portland, but put the people and busi ness interests of central Maine entirely at the mercy of a foreign corporation that will have uo other interest in view but to wring out of them the utmost dollar. Do we understand the Journal correctly? It is due to the Boston & Maine railroad to say that we have seen a communication trom President White of that corporation, in which he gives it as his unqualified opinion, formed by an intimate acquaintance with the leading stockholders, that they will never consent to the consolidation of the Eastern and Boston & Maine roacs. And now contracting coopers and sugar re ners emp oying coopers have promised their journeymen that they will not purchase bar rels made in Portland or Bath. The ques tion may not be pertinent, but is this a free country ?_ “Toby Can-dor’ journal after looking over the Gubernatorial field concludes that unless some new man enters the field, Hon. Nelson Dingley, Jr., of Lew iston, will be the nominee of the Bangor Convention. Bad Bum.—The officers of the Portland and Ogdensburg Bailroad complain that the build ing operations in New Hampshire have been retarded not a little by the great number of groggeries located along the line, which tend to keep a great many men unsteady, and conse quently more or less vicious. In Maine no trouble lias bceu experienced iu shutting up these dens, but in New Hampshire they find it impossible. The Hon. S. S. Cox is likely to be the succes sor in Congress of the late James Brooks New York Letter. The »e« VorU Cbnrtcr-I.tbc Mayor leg J „„,f - Auo.hcr Rumor - Slate mailer, au,. so.,iper.-A ProTi.ioaal Covcrnmcnt-Thc Tweed policy-Tbe Paciflc Mail Steamship Company null Wall S:ree, operation.. New Yoke* May, 3 1873. The local politicians of tho city have been greatly exercised for the past twesty-four hours hy the discovery of certain omissions in the new charter, which are supposed to invalidate the claim of Mr. Ilavemeyer to retain the office of Mayor, It is true that tho charter apparently legislates everybody out of place except certain heads of Department who are specially named. Nevertheless the Mayor having been elected by the people for a term of two years, and being invested with large powers and functions under this very charter is so obviously the central fig ure in the new system, that the idea of dis placing him, through somedefect of phraseolo gy is too absurd to be treated seriously. Yet, it is astonishing to what a pitch of excitement people can bo wrought up hy sensational ru mors. The universal themo of inquiry on ev ery tongue to-day has been, “What does it meau? Has the Mayor really been turued out by au oversight of the charter makers? If so, who will take his place? And then your ex perts in technicalities proceed to elaborate the point, that the new law makes no express pro vision for the retention of the Mayor—that ho is therefore out—that being au elective officer there is no power in the Legislature to re-in state him, that the vacancy can only be filled at the general election provided for by the stat ute in November 1871, and that meantime, the President of the Board of Alderman, is Mayor de facto etc. etc. To all which the answer is plain and simple enough. The Mayor is in of fice—was placed there by the suffrages of the people, and cannot he constitutionally remov ed except for misdemeanor. The fact that he is in possession disposes of all the theories.of hair-splitters and sensation-mongers about Jii title to his seat. The agitaficTui'thc question has served its wpiie. It has proved a day’s wonder, and the theme of a day’s talk. It will furnish a text for tho leading articles in the Sunday papers perhaps. But by Monday noon it will be forgotten. Anoiuer canard lias relieved tue monotony of a dull week for news. There is a story that the aldermen have formed a “King” to control the appointments to be made by the mayor subject to their confirmation, the four Tammany members consorting with three Re publicans and two Apollo Hall men in the Board. Some of the journals are violent in their denunciation of the plot to capture the patron age of the city. Such a combination would certainly be discreditable to the parties con cerned in it and would justly call out a genera^ expression of popular indignation. But the ru mor is not sustained by evidence and is proba bly another of that numerous brood of Roor backs which are always set afloat on the eve of important changes in governments, great or small. The Aldermen are in the main reputa ble citizens, far above the average Aldermen of the past fifteen years, in character and standing. Doubtless, they have ambitious projects, and desire a voice in the selection of the incoming municipal functionaries. The statute declares that nominations are to be made “by and with their advice and consent.” The uniform practice of the President and Sen ate of the United States would seem to be con clusive authority for the ruling, that the Exec utive in sending in the name of a candidate, invites thereby the “advice” of the body clothed with the power of confirmation or re jection. Some of the Aldermen hold that their advice onglit to precede and guide the selec tions made. But certainly the Mayor has every argument that precedent can furnish for a con trary view of his prerogative, and I presume his right to initiate nominations will not bo seriously disputed. As long as these matters are in abeyance, we must expect to be in a state of heat and fermentation. Every variety of ru mor, sometimes with a slender basis of fact and oftener conceived In pure fiction, will be set afloat with alacrity and caught up and kept in circulation as long as its specific gravity wilj sustain its flight. People are amazingly credu lous about affairs of public concern, and literal ly revel in reports of plots, and conspiracies, so intrinsically nonsensical, that when they come to be sifted, everybody wonders how anybody could have been humbugged by them. Almost every day som<?enterprising journal ist makes up a “slate” on which is inscribed the name of every local officer to be selected in conformity to the provisions of the charter. Very likely it is a pure invention from begin ning to end. But it almost always serves the purpose of eliciting comment, often indignant protest, sometimes angry phillipic. Even the Times, which is par excellence the great organ and mouth-piece of reform and never conscious ly swerves from the straight path of unfalter ing rectitude, occasionally gets caught by one of these fables of the gossips, and hurls its thunderbolts of wrath against a suppositious candidate who probably had not been even thought of in connection with the post assigned tmn, save in tne Dram ot tne writer wlio used his name to point and emphasize a para graph. Whatever may be the disappointments ot in dividuals in the distribution of patronago under the municipal law just going into effect, of one thing we may he reasonably certain, and that is that the people at large will be greatly benefitted by the changes that are to take place. For eighteen months the city of New York has had really nothing more than a pro visional government. Its chief financial offi cer has been a sort of assignee in bankruptcy administering upon a disordered estate. It was the rule of the Tweed Ring to pay bogus t claims and ignore genuine ones. Nothing could get through that hadn’t a steal in it. Consequently the Comptroller’s office is be sieged by creditors, whose long standing ac counts have to bo subjected to a scrutiny em barrassed by the lapse of time sinco they orig inated, and which severely tax the patience and skill of the whole clerical force of that vast department. When the new order of things is firmly established and system and discipline succeed the chaotic confusion of a rascally regime, the public service will grad ually improve, the highways of the city will bi put iu decent condition, and that unsightly structure in the Park, the County Court House, whi ch stands as a perpetual memorial of the reckless iuiquity of the old Board of Supervi sors by whom it was begun twelve years ago in defiance of law, will be hastened to comple tion. At present its surroundings of d n"v and weather beaten scaffolding, and out-lying blocks of rust-eaten marble offend the sight of every passer-by. It will never cease to be the shame of every honest New Yorker, but it will be a less hideous spectacle when it is finished. It is the “whited sepulchre’’ of the metropolis of the new world. Next to Erie, the stock of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, has most conspicuously illustrated the vicissitudes of Wall Street spec ulation, for several years past. Before the Union Pacific railway was completed, it was a rich corporation and paid large dividends regu larly. The stock has been increased several tunes and now represents millions of dollars. It has been quick of sale at $250 aud hard to dispose of at $40. Leonard W. Jerome lost a million by it, and other operators have found in it the grave of their hoards. The last time it got down into the forties, a voung man named A. B. Stockwell, a Eon-in-law of the Sewing Machine inventor Howe n„,i in. heritor ot his fortune in part, took vigorous hold of it and secured enough of the shares to ' control its direction. The former managers were deposed, and a new set with Stockwell as President entered into possession. Tho same parties combined to monopolize tho Panama Itailway at the same time. The fluctuations in the shares of this company had been even more remarkable than those of the other, but its cap ital was not so large. Panama sold at $360, three years ago, and declined steadily till it touched 852! It was at this point that the Stockwell interest began their measures for its capture. They succeeded, and it rose to 130 and upwards. But fortune turned, and rumors are rife that Stockwell’s wealth, which was es timated at several millions has been very near ly, if not quite, swept away by the deprecia tions that have lately befallen the shares of both Corporations, of which he held enormous quantities. This extraordinary ease of the re verses to which adventurous operators are sub ject furnishes another proof of the dangers at tendant upon association with the bulls and bears in the great menagerie of Wall street and its environs. No tamer can subdue these wild animals so effectually, but that they will turn and rend him, whenever they get an op portunity. Yarmouth. Bumselling at Beddeford.—The Times says that the Municipal Court was crowded Monday morning in consequence of a fracas Sunday, for which four persons were arraigned. As the case was proceeding Mayor McMullail entered tho court room and asked permission to address those assembled, and his request was granted. As on all other occasions, he spoke e P°>nt. He desired to stop the sale of in *?? liquors, and while tho victims to wantfa ki» hearfelt sympathies, he made the°fmf th® 8eller brought to justice, and arrested for intI,'v R Proposition: Every person dcnce seams "’ho will give the evi conviciton, shall haVhiffine^aid^and $25b£ ceive 825 therefor. This is to be for this year, and the more frequent nllPfir0**61 is called jupon to pay the awar^S^ Ras ing it will be to him, and he .will back un this proposition to the extent of 810,000 if neces sary. Wiscasset letter. Wiscasset, May 3d, 1873. DIVORCES. The proceedings of the Supreme Court now : in session have been encumbered and deformed with domestic infelicities in tho shape of “bills of divorcement.” It is evidently a growing evil in society here as elsewheie, and may be re garded as the legitimate result of a departure from the marital laws of the Bible; and is an infection which is rotting away the very foun dations of Christian civilization in New Eng land. A RIGHTEOUS JUDGE. Judge Cutting, at the opening of his term noted the mischievous device of thejlaw to un settle the marriage relation, In the docket entries of cases pend ing for divorce. He called tho attention of the bar to tho mat ter and announced “that in all cases where adultery of the parties was an alleged cause, ho would only hear the cases in the presence of the jury.” He declared he would not lend ju dicial sanction to this facile instrument of crime ingettingup divorces. FEATURES. The saddest feature of this sitting of our court is the suit of Emma G. Call vs. Moses Call, showing that the taint of our divorce laws has infected what are supposed to be the better circles of society. The case is ably managed by A. P. Gould, Esq., for libellant, and your gen tleman}- and courteous Strout, of tho firm of Gage and Strout of your city, for therespon dcn. Fouler exhibits ebulitions of blasphemy, tyranny, wanton persecution and studied cruel ty, where no physical assaults appear—if we except attempts at abortion—upon a young and Christian wife and mother, and chiefly because she was a Christian and was true to her Chris tian instincts, can no where be found in the an nals of civilized turmoils. The respondent’s reputed wealth and posi tion in professional circles has of itself given the trial wide interest. This trial shows how human belief shapes and controls Jb'nTdh con duct. ‘A our thqijffJti'j&pjre higher and fur ..HHljiFand rest upon happiness beyond. But for myself give me enjoymekt while I have be ing or life to appreciate it, and I will give up the hallucination of imaginary happiness, when the sensorial faculties are obliterated wim tuc uioauiubiuu ul an ur^uiu^uuuu. oulu was the respondent’s answer to the Christian and touching appeals of his Christian wife of hopes hereafter. Happily the case was cut short by the respondent s attorney, saying that after establishing the fact of no crime against his client, he would not contend, as the trial had developed the fact that there was a total incompatibility between them, and that the married relation could not be sustained, Whereupon the divorce was decreed. SPRAGUE, STUROISS & CO. Governor Sprague of Khodc Island, with his friends Sturgiss & Sanborn of the Kennebec and Coburn Land Co., are here locating the sites of their manufacturing establishment on “Brick Point,” the bridge to which is already piled, and work begins next week on the mill foundations. SQUIRREL ISLAM). I see repeated notices of a claim of dower in , the right of the widow of tho late Judge Bruin of New Jersey, upon the Squirrel Island sea side hamlet in Boothhay harbor. Your quon dam friend, J. M. Carleton seems to be the head and “butt” of the projected legal specula tions afoot, and Friday a petition was generally signed by the rentlemen of the bar, which tho Hon. Mr. Carleton is expected to present to His Honor for an adjournment of the court on an excursion to Squirrel Island, at the expense of the fortunate holder of the stakes of the great law suit in prospect. The proprietors of Squir rel Island sea-side homes may expect to feel the “avenging sword”of legislative memories fierce ly drawn in avenging power in redress of the widows’ wrongs. But be sure there is a live “molusk” at the bottom. S. The West Point Cadetship. Hon. John H. Burleigh has appointed Dr. Theodore H. Jewett of South Berwick, A. A. Strout, esq., of Portland, and Benj. F. Hamil ton, esq., of Biddeford, to examine candidates for appointment as cadets to West Point. The candidate nominated must be a resident of the First Congressional District of Maine, and when admitted to the Military Academy be tween the ages of seventeen and twenty-two years, and not less than five feet in height, must be free from any disease or infirmity which may make him unfit for arduous milita ry service. The candidate is required by law to be profi cient in reading and writing, in the elements of English grammar, in descriptive geography, particularly of our own country, and in the his tory of the United States. In arithmetic, tho various operations in addition, substruction, multiplication, division, reduction, simple and compound proposition and vulgar and decimal fractions must be thoroughly understood and readily performed. Whenever possible appoint ments are made one year in advance of the date of admission, (viz: about the first of July in each year) so that candidates may he afforded time to prepare for a successful examination. The candidate nominated is expected to be ad mitted next year. The committee will meet at the Saco House in Saco, on the 27th day of May inst, at 1 o’clock p. m. Saco.—We have received tho Sixth Annual Iteport of the City of Saco, which shows that municipality to be in a thrifty condition. The city debt is $53,250.00, which was lessened the past year $4,567.57. Tho report is printed by the publisher W. S. Noyes, and is in every re spect a first-class piece of workmanship. News and Other Items. Congressman Sloss of Alabama, gives his back pay to the poor of his district. Senator Daniel D. Pratt of Indiana has turn ed in liia back pay—$4120.60—to Treasurer Spinner. The Illinois Senate refuses, 25 to 15, to con sider the House resolution condemning the sal ary grab.

Last winter, after a heavy snow fall, a young Belfast girl was endeavoring to make her way along the street to a house at which she was employed, when a strange dog, a large New foundland, came to her aid. He kept ahead of her, breaking a path, until he saw her turn in a, ‘fr destination, when with a satisfied wag of the tail he trotted back. YORK COUNTY. The Times says that between twelve and one o clock Monday morning, the house and barn belonging to the heirs of the late Thomas Gor don, and situated on the Hollis road, were de stroyed by fire. Very little furniture was saved The house was insured for $700 in the “Mu tual” of Saco, and the furniture, wear inn pare!, et«., for $200 iu the “Penn.” S p What Is Vitality ? Science has not yet answered this conundrum The principle of life, in spite of the researches of chemists, doctors and metaphysicians, remains un known. We 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 principle, whatever it may be, is shorn of its active power and that the body it animates languish es. We know, too, such of us are capable of deriving knowledge from authenticated facts, that Hostctter’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 bo 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.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of tho very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are tho causes of two-thiids of tho cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling someiimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate trom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and, inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, tho lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result.
