An Irish servant girl recently imported hy an up town family, who when hired, declared she understood fully her duties, was sent a few days after to purchaso a feather duster and re turned with a pepper box. Commercial street yesterday, reveled in clouds of dust. The extraordinary dry weather we arc now experiencing, should make people careful of fire. Rev. Mr. Wright, of St. Lawrence Street Church, will preach at the Allen Mission Chap el next Sunday morning. A spark from an engine set fire to the Port land and Rochester bridge Wednesday, and a tie was burned off before it wae discovered. . ■** There was no business before the Municipal Court yesterday. The Springfield City Guard wiil visit Port land this Summer. Tho hearing before the County Commission ers on the question of damages in reference to the Boston & Maine railroad, has been post poned until the 30tli inst. Officer Stover arrested a man yesterday after i noon for getting drunk and smashing furniture in a house on Summer street. Deputy Williams and officer York arrested a man named John H. Hart yesterday, for get ting drunk and beating an organ grinder. They ought to have considered his temptation. It will be remembered that some time ago the County Commissioners were petitioned for a county-way in Falmouth and the citizens not being satisfied with the award of damages, a jury was drawn who assessed the damages at about double the amount awarded by tho Com missioners, say some §3,500. The Commis sioners havo decided therefore not to grant the petition for the way. Judge Clifford contemplates paying a visit to California the coming season. As he was was the originator of the treaty of acquisition he feels much curiosity to see tho State. It is said that tho defence in Wagner’s caso will attempt to prove an alibi. Elijah Tipton, Esq., publisher of the Bath Times, donates all printing and advertising for the Bath Fair, now in progress in aid of the Maine General Hospital Fair. r» The grand jury will report this morning at ten o’clock. Prisoners will be arraigned at the coming in of Court in the afternoon. Morris Brothers drew a good audieuce to their pleasing entertainment at Music Hall last evening. Mr. J. F. Libby, the well-known and popular livery stable keeper, bought the Preble House stables. He purposes running both ■tables. During the month of April 53 vessels passed through the draw at Vaughan’s bridge. Two little children were picked up by the police on the streets yosterday. One was un able to tell his name, and the other didn’t know where she lived. The homo of the girl was ascertained by asking her where she bought her candy. Rubienstein.—The reduction of the price of seats at the Rubinstein Concert will undoubt edly ensuro to the shaggy Maestro a full house this evening. The programme selected is a su perb one, embracing the finest of morceaux from the great masters. It has been well said that Rubinstein makes of his instrument an orchestra. It is no longer the stringed box of the boudoir, but the loosened voice of many instruments. He indulges in no “piano pyro technics” but there is a Titanic grandeur about the man, a disdain of all elegancies and pretti nesses which makes other piano forte playing seem tame and insipid. The violin playing of Wieniawski shows a tender grace which few living players have learned to express. Withal he is a capable and brilliant artist of the most thorough training and of exquisite finish of style. Miss Louise Liebhard is spoken of as a so prano of undoubted excellence. We append the programme: PART I. a Overture, “Egmont,” Beethoven. 1 o Rondo, Mozart e Gigue, Handel. d Wedding March, “Midsummer Night Dream,” Mendelssohn. Anton Rubinstein. 2 Aria, “Angels ever bright and fair,” Handel Mile. Louise Liebhart. 3 Fantasie, Faust,” Wieniawski. Henri Wieniawski. PART II. _. a Nocturne, f‘e 4 b Erl , Liszt, c Turl t nwthoven.. Anton Rubinstein. ■ (I Robin Adair, Kuckcn. 0 b Ruck Ruck, Mile. Louise Liebhart. - a Legende, Wieniawski. b Airs Russes, Henri Wieniawski. a Ballade, 7 b Berceuso, Chopin, c Polonaise, Anton Rubinstein. Portland Water Company.—A majority of the bond holders of the Portland Water Company under the first mortgage met at the company’s office on Plum street yestecday morning and received from the company an exhibit of their affairs. In accordance with a request of the company a committee was ap pointed consistiug of Mr. Althrop of Boston, Burhham of Saco, and Mr. Fuller of Taunton, to make such further examination as they mtgat desire and report at an adjourned mret ing to be held at the office of Head & Perkins in Boston, May 21st. The bond-holders expressed the opinion that they believed the city would meet the applica tion of the company for additional aid in tho spirit oflibcrality|considering that the capital for the construction of the works was furnished by parties outside of the State, and vote sach a subsidy as should be a fair compensation for the water supplied to the city. Hon, Israel Washburn, Jr., one of the Trus tees, spoke of the advantage the company had been to the city and of the promising future of Portland, and Hon. W. W. Thomas also refer red te the growth of Portland, of the great ne cessity the works had become to the city,of the introduction by him of the water into the ma jority of the dwellings owned by him, and that he was prepared to put the pipes into as many more. The meeting adjourned about 3 p. m. Among the bond-holders present was Mr. T. H. Perkins of Boston, who represented bond holders to rhe amount of 8200,000. Art Exhibition.—The art exhibition at Lan caster Hall continues to attract many visitors. The display is a fine one, the arrangement of the pictures adding much to the effect. It is to be hoped that our citizens will show a due ap preciation of the efforts of the artists who con tribute, and so encourage similar exhibitions. Portland ought to be able to support an annual art sale. During the remainder of the week the hall will bo open day and evening, The effect when the hall is lighted is very fine, and will undoubtedly add to the number of visitors. Many of the pictures are worthy of particu lar mention. Among these is a White Moun tain scene by Harry Brown, in which that most difficult of all colors white, is managed with rare ability. A view of Portland Light in win ter, by the same artist, possesses the fine charm of all his marines. Enneking of Boston, con tributes two lake scenes, one in Switzerland, the other in the Adirondacks, which are masterly in their treatment His “Winter on Nepon set” evinces a treatmentof sky and cloud which is very fine. H. G. Hewes has a cold, foggy marsh scene which it makes one shiver to stand before, It is intense in its realism. Higgins, in his Wolfboro’ landscape, exhibits some cloud painting that is really admirable. Holmes of Gardiner, shows a curious gray picture, which is remarkable for its absence of positive tints. Webber of Gardiner, has several of his charac teristic, nature-loving pieces. There are many other paintings on exhibition that we should like to mention if we had time. As it is, we advise onr readers to go and see for themselves. Chinese Curiosities at Senter’s.—It will be remembered that in 1871 a French naval force punished the Coreans for their persecu tions of Christians. On the part of the United States they were chastised again the same year, in hopes of whipping them into good behavior towards foreigners, and lead to make peaceful negotiations for the benefit of shipwrecked sea men. In the French account it is stated that some Coreans who rushed out against the sol diers were clad in armor.of helmets and breast plates and stood the fire of the troops without damage. Some cannon found at Kanghoa were breech loaders of Chinese make. J. W. North of Portland,an officer on board the Colo rado, in the expedition, brought home a sample of the breech loading bullet proof cap and coat of twenty thicknesses of India cotton and a match lock and sword. They are geneously appropriated for the Natural History, but left at W. Senter’s for a few days inspection. Forest City Pare.—Mr. George H. Bailey has associated with himself in leasing Forest City Park, Horace C. Willis of Mystic Park, Boston. They will offer $2,500 in purses, com mencing June 10th, and continuing to the 15th. They propose to make the time specified a grand gala time for trotting. On Saturday the entire proceeds of the gate will bo devoted to the Hospital Fair. The committee in charge of the Fair will en that day offer a superior wagon for a first premium and a superb har ness, for a second premium. As this season of trotting will take place during the progress of the Hospital Fair, it is very reasonably expect ed that the Park will entertain crowds of peo ple. _ Marietta Ravel.—The favorite pantomim ic artist, Marietta Ravel,- supported by a pow erful New York company, begins an engage ment at Music Hall this evening. The sale of seats begins at the box office this morning. The play presented this evening will be the very popular one of “Jartine,” in which Miss Ravel assumes so many roles. The play and the actress are so well known here that it-is scarcely necessary to more than call atten tion. __ How to Stop Rumsellino in this City.— Discharge every one arrested for drunkenness upon their testimony convicting the one who sold them rum; offer a reward of twenty-five dollars to any person who will give evidence convicting any person of rnm selling; let the rewards bo paid by the fines, or by the city or from a fund raised by subscription. How many, think you, would dare sell, with such a reward offered for their conviction? p. The LiLLiPUTiANs^-^The wonderful fairy sisters continue to draw good houses, their grace and vivacity proviug an unfailing attrac tion. Indeed the more one contemplates them the more the wonder grows that such mites can be fcuud anywhere out of fable land. They give entertainments every afternoon and eve ning during the remainder of the week. "t . Boston & Maine Extension.—Work on the Boston and Maine cutting at the foot of Park street is progressing slowly. This hard ledge is with a single exception the only blasting that will need to be done before the extension reach es the depot on Maplo street. The exception consists of but a slight cutting. It is expected that all the blasting will be finished by the first of July. __ Personal.—We are again under special obli gations to Stephen Berry, esq., for the model reports of the Masonic meetings the past few days. The press of the State generally are un der many obligations to Mr. Berry who is uni formly courteous, prompt and accurate.

Hampton Colored Students.—City Hall was well filled last evening. with an !, audience that represented our better class of citizens, to listen to the sweet songs of these children of the south. And it is extremely doubtful if any school in the country can produce from among its pupils seventeen young ladies and gentle men, white or colored, who can give as good satisfaction to an audience. The second soDg on the list put the audience in good humor, and song after song was encored. Indeed the hearty encores given drew out quite a number of very fine songs not on the bill. Many of the pieces were rendered with an unction that was invig orating. These students were so finely disci plined that they require no instrument to give them the key at the start. They exhibit the most perfect harmony. The soft, the full, the ringing, the heavy, blended in tones of such ex quisite symphony that every word uttered rang out distinct, and fell upon the ear in delightful strains. Ex-Mayor Kingsbury introduced Gen. Arm strong, President of the Hampton Institute, who gave a brief statement of the condition and requirements of the school. The purpose of the school is to educate the colored youih of Virginia and North Carolina sufficiently to enable them to pursue the avocation of teachers One good point he made when he said “is it not better economy to pay $210 for a two years’ course for one of these students and then send them out on a life mission of teaching the blacks at no further expense to you.than it is to send a whit8 teacher from the North at an ex pense of $500 a year?’’ The Institute obliges the studeuts to work and help earn their board. They do not ask for charity but appeal to Christian duty. City Affair*. At a meeting of the Board of Aldermen yes terday afternoon it was voted to issue bonds of the city to the amount of $50,000 for the Port land and Ogdensburg, the Board having become satisfied that amount had been expended in work done and materials furnished since the last issue of bonds by the city. Petition of Patrick O’Neil for permission to build a wooden house on the comer of Dan forth and Walnut streets was referred; also pe tition of Solomon Schryver as pawn-broker. Fire.—The alarm at half past 2 o’clock this morning was occasioned by fire being discover ed in the Plaster Mill of Knight & Whidden, on West Commercial street. The amount of damage is unknown. It is supposed the fire caught around the boiler. A Rumor.—The quid nunc’s have it, that Mr. Francis Chase has resigned his position of •uperintendent of the Portland,Saco and Ports mouth Railroad and that the company will of fer the position left vacant by Mr. Chase to Paysou Tucker Esq., Agent of the Boston and Maine. ■ MISCELLANEOUS NOTICES. “All’s well that ends well.” Adamson’s Botanic Cough Balsam begins well and ends well in curing coughs, colds and lung com plaints every time.

Providence, E. I., May 8.—Fred L. Watts, mate of the schooner Leander, of St. George, Me., at Warren, is missing, having probably fallen overboard while paying out the anchor chain. MASSACHUSETTS. *4 Liquor Law in Boston. Boston, May 8.—The State constables are about the city to-day with notifications suited to the different grades of liquor dealers. Wholesalers are let alone. Bar rooms are no tified to close at once, on pain of prosecution. Ale dealers, wholesale and retail, are warned against selling “over the bar.” Eating-house keepers are asked what they sell; if the answer is ale, porter and cider, the caution against giv ing their customers anything stronger is im pressed upon them. The hotels manifest a dis position to take no notice whatever of the edict, the small detlers only vary their form of ans wering thirsty callers. The principal dealers hold meetings to-night aud it is reported a proposition will be carried to send their stock out of the State and sus pend manufacturing. Tax Bill-Fatal Shot. The bill making the amount of income ex empt from State taxation $1500 instead of $1000 as the law now stands, has passed the House by a vote of 137 to 13. An amendment to abol ish income tax was entirely defeated by a vea and nay vote of 78 to 93. Thos. Mahan, who was shot by F. H. Shaida last Saturday is past hope of recovery and Sha dia is held in $2500 for examination. Death of Hon. Oakes Ames, North Easton, May 8.—Hon. Oakes Ames died at liis residence in North Easton at 9.33 this evening. His disease was appoplexy, com plicated with pneumonia. He died very easily, passing away without a strugglo in the pres ence of his wife, his three sons, his daughter, Mrs. H. French and her husband, Mrs. O. A. Ames, his grand daughter, Mrs. Maria H. Ames, his sister, Mrs. S. A. Witherell. his brother, the Hon. Oliver Ames, and nephew, Hon. Fred L Ames, and Dr. Geo. B. Cogs well, his family physician, who has scarcely left his side day or night since ho was taken sick. The funeral will take place from his late residence in North Easton on Sunday,11th inst. A train will leave the Old Colony depot in Bos ton, giving his numerous friends an opportuni ty to attend the funeral and return to Boston after the services. Mr. Ames was 69 years 3 months and 18 days. He has been suffering from diabetes for nearly three years, but by a strict attention to diet has been able to keep that disease in check. On Monday night, April 28th, he had an attack of indigestion but attended to his duties in Boston on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. On Thursday he remained at home, occasionally visiting his office in North Easton. Thursday evening he was seized with inflammation of the diaphragm, and through the night he suffered intense pain, obiaining no sleep. Friday ho obtained a little easy sleeping while in a sitting posture. Ho passed the whole of Friday night sitting in his chair. Saturday he was more comfortable; Sunday he remained about the same, slept well through the night, and Monday his pulse, temperature of the body and rapid respiration all indicated a rapid return to his usual health. He remaiued very comfortable up to about 5.30 p. m., when he was seized with apoplexy, resulting in a complete paralysis of the right half of the body. At the same time there were slight indications of pulse monia in the lower lobe of the left lung, which extended over both lungs. Mr. Ames remained partially conscious at intervals up to noon Wednesday, from which time he has remained perfectly unconscious up to the time of his death. Thus has passed away an other good man, a man respected and beloved by all who knew him—a man whose life is a national one—and the time will come when the whole American continent will recognize the late Hon. Oakes Ames as one of its greatest benefactors. NEW YORK. Chief Justice Chase. New York, May 8 —Business at the new court house was generally suspended to-day owing to the adjournment of nearly all branch es of the Supreme Court and Common Pleas out of respect to the memory of Chief Justice Chase. A large number of the friends of Mr. Chase called to-day at Mr. Hoyt’s to see his body. Despatches have been received from Gen. Sherman, Ex-Secretary of the Navy Gid eon Wells, and other prominent persons saying that they will be present at the funeral on Sat urday. The face of the late Chief Justice retains a natural appearance and there is no token of acute suffering. The following gen tlemen have been chosen to act as pall bearers: Gen, Sherman, John M. Evarts, Hamilton Fish, Gen. Itwin, Gen. McDowell, Hiram Bar ney, Gideon Wells, Charles O’Connor, William Cullen Bryant and Caleb Cushing. It is un derstood that Mr. Chase left an estate of $50, 000 to $200,000. In a will made about two \ ears ago he bequeathed a considerable sura to Dartmouth College and to a University for col ored people at Worthington, Ohio. It is not known however whether the terms of the will have been changed by a codicil. No action has yet been taken by the government relating to the death of the late Chief Justice. It is thought that immediately upon the return of the President there will be ameeting of the Cab inet to take proper action. The remains of Chief Justice Chase will be in St. George’s Church this city, from 8 a. m., to 1 p. m., Saturday. At 3 o’clock the same afternoon, the funeral services will take place. The remains will reach Washington Sunday morning, and will lie in state at the residence of Senator Sprague during Sunday. On Mon day they will lie in the Metropolitan M. E. Church. A service will be held the same after noon, after which the interment will take place. American Bible Society.
