the press. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 12, 1873. EvfiRT regular attache of tho Press is furnished wtili a m*rd certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and lioto managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our Journal, as we have information that several bum mers” arc seeking courtesies in the name of the Piuess, and we have no disposition to be, even I a~ sively, a party to such fraud. W l do not rend anonymous letters and communi cations. i bo name and address of tho writer are in all cjsos InJispensab c, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty Of good faith. Wj cannot undertake to return or reserve com munications that are not used. Contemptible. One of the unpleasant duties that a news paper owes the public is to expose humbugs and denounce frauds. In what the Press has published respecting gambling on the trains of the Maine Central and like matters, It has been actuated by no other purpose than the public good. It is a duty incumbent upon us, and however unpleasant, one that we shall not shrink from; and if the humbug is unmaske.1 and the knave held up to view in either case they are responsible for their own disgrace. It was simply this view of the matter that led us to notice the Bridgton affair Saturday. Since that time several gcnt'.emeD who have been in various parts of the State have called on us and made statements which show that for nearly a year a pair of graceless scamps have been travelling through the country known here by the names of Hickson and Ap plegate, and who have been claiming to be long to Col. Whiteley’s secret service for the detection of counterfeiteis. When making their raids through the State they profess to be “runners” taken ill or having a lame horse for which they beg a little liquor. Their real Dusiness is to prowl about the country and purchase liquor where they can iu order to secure witness fees on making eompiaint. In making a tour they secure as many cases as they can by practicing all manner of deceit and then report to a United States Commis sioner “in this city, who issues a warrant for the arrest of the parties, which of course it is his duty to do if the case seems to be im portant. The matter is put into the hands of the United States Marshal, who is obliged to serve it, but which the District Attorney, it i3 said, in many cases, considering the severe penalties of the revenue law, has authorized that officer to settle with the technical viola- I tor for the amount of the license and costs, where the violation appears to'be rather un intentional than deliberate. Against this procedure in general there can be no complaint, though the internal revenue department has its own officers, whose duty it is to attend to this matter and collect these licenses rigidly but with as little hardship to the dealer as possible. At least those who violate this revenue law through misconcep tion or ignorance, should not be harrassed with expensive suits, and never be preyed upon by spies and pimps. But when these Cises are brought to the District Attorney and United States Marshal they have no al ternative but to proceed with the suits. There Is, however, complaint that Mr. Commissioner Rand should issue, except in extreme cases, warrants at the instance of two such men as Hickson and Applegate, when he ought to know that they make it their business, and it Is for their interest to make as many com plaints as possible. In tbe case of Mr. Hill of Bridgton, we have learned since our last issue that be has once in a while let bis neighbors have alcohol or whiskey in case of sickness and is accord ingly answerable to the law, and though undoubtedly a very respectable man it is no reason that he should be allowed to violate the law, even if his sales in a year do not amount to a qaaiter of the cost of a license. The officer that visited him was a deputy marshal in the discharge of his duty, and off ered to settle for the license and the costs, though the latter were double the sum ho would had to have paid for the former. But now wc come again to Messrs. Hickson and Applegate. We might add one or two more names, and will if we hear more of their dirty tricks. We do not know whether these men were the two nice young men who traveled through Somerset county last winter with a lame horse for which they attempted to pureha‘c so much’alcohol, but presume they are the same. Nor do we know it they are the same pair that have troubled so many parties in Oxford of late, but believe they are. In every case they obtained alcohol or whis key by pleading the urgent necessity of sick ness—by lying and protesting in their lies. But we have a number of cases that were reported to us Saturday where Hickson and Applegate operated down east recently that will show how inconceivably mean md per fidious these follows are. In the town of Robbinston a lady named Kerr keeps a public house but never sold rum. This brace of worthies marked this woman for a victim, as real cases were not plenty, and applied to her for brandy, pretending violent sickness. She told them she had none and did not keep it; but as they were very persistent and she was obliging, she agreed to send to St. Andrews the next day for a bottle of brandy, which the did, and let them have it for the same it csst. The average of mankind can hardly bring thimsclves to comprehend that two men eould be found so lost to decency as to bring a complaint against this woman under the cir cumstances ; but they did and a warrant was issued, but the officer in this and several like outrageous cases, was so disgusted that he would not make service upon them, though several parties were victimized in that locality. We are informed that Hickson and Apple gate are not United States officers, though they claim to belong to the somewhat myste rious department of Col. Whiteley, and re cently put tbe government to considerable expense in a counterfeit money matter where they failed to make a case. The length of this article precludes a pen and ink sketch of these fellows. They dress well, talk professional slang, but have such marks of the genus blackleg that one instinc tively feels relieved when they leave his pres ence and he ascertains that his pocket-book is safe. These undesirable marks may per tain to all the detectives of Col. Whiteley’s force, hut the public will be sorry to believe it in Vi iwYillA'ij a 'lir 1r~1 that cl ass of men who serve the State perforce and without par. The seventh annual report ef the State Board of Harbor Commissioners for Massa chusetts, is an exceedingly able and instruc tive document. Hon. Josiah Quincy is chair man of the Board. W« are pleased to see in the report the following handsome reference to one of our Portland citizens: “All the government work in Massachusetts done to improve and preserve harbors during the past year, has been in charge of Gen. George Thom of the U. S. Engineers. His adminis tration in this State has been marked by great efficiency and a judicious economy in expenditures, that have made the appropria tions accomplish the greatest amount of good. His relations to the Board are especially grat ifying.” The commissioners copy in full Gen. Thom’s report of the improvements during the year, in the livers and harbors of Massa chusetts. Josiah Quincx in a note to the Boston Advertiser, says that there is between Bos ton and Chicago “watered stock” enough to build and equip a double track railroad with steel rails the whole distance. On this the people of the country are paying the interest, and when there is complaint made of high tariffs, the corporations exhibit the small dividends they make on the stock, forgetting to state at the same time that this stock nev er cost a dollar. Anna Dickinson, says the St. Paul Press, “tells a friend who speaks right out in meet ing, that Whitelaw Keid is a spoony sort of a dandy dilletante, without any brains to speak of, and that she is engaged to no such man— not she P An exchange thinks this sort of talk is only the result of a lovers’ quarrel. As a great many of our citizens hold the bonds of tlic Union Pacific Railroad Com anv, they may be interested to know that the company sold during the month of April, 1873 11,471 30-100 acres of land, at an aver age price of $4,92 per acre, amounting to $54, 440.70. Sales averaged 428 7-10 acres to each purchaser. Total sales to May 1, 1873, 714,908 80-100 acres, at an average price of $4.28 7-10 per acre, amounting to $3,064,877. 01. This company has a land grant of 12, 000,000 acres, lying on each side of the track, and extending through one State and three territories. Three million acres lying on the first 300 miles of the toad in the State of Nebraska, are now for sale on ten years time with interest at six per cent. Chief Justice Read of Pennsylvania,in his protest against the opinion of the ull bench of that Slate declaring the constitu tionality or the local prohibition law, urged the following which in the light of a judical reason, possesses the highest degree of nov elty: ’“On the Fourth of July, 1776, every patriot drank to the independence of the Thirteen States. Shall it be that on the Fourth of July, 1876, all we can lawfully of fer to our guests on this great anniversary will be a glass of Schuylkill water, seasoned with a lump of Knickerbocker ice?” A New Yorker answering to the peculiar name ol Nickey DeFreest has started for the lava beds armed with a pistol, a big knife, two razors, a big cane and a huge accordeon. His policy is to beguile the savage Modoc irom his lair with the accordeon, sooth his savage breast and then scalp him at his leis ure. There has been solemn war wisdom not a great deal more practical than Nickev's. Send in Yonr Gifts. In the conflict of opinion among religionists, scientists, philosophers, statesmen, and politi cians, there is, happily, one sentiment which commands universal assent. That is, that humanity requires a helping hand to the sons-and daughters of misfortune and suffering wherever found. 1 here is also a fact of equally universal ap plication. This is, that every man, woman and child in the community is liable to acci dent, misfortune and suffering. The Maine General Hospital is founded upon these two propositions. The premises being conceded, (and no one can question them) it follows that the approaching Fair in aid of the enterprise has a claim upon tho practical good will and patronage of all. The institution is neither local in its beneficial intent, and its ad vantages are to be limited to no class, sex or condition. Though originating under the aus pices of science, its aim is the highest interest of humanity. A charity resting on such broad foundations would seem to require no spur to secure all the munificence it requires. But as the essential blessings of sun and atmosphere from their very commonness are liable to be unapprecia ted, so the claims of this noble institution may be possibly overlooked for kindred reasons. It is gratifying to learn that a commendable de gree of liberality has already been manifested in contributions to the Fair. But the time for its opening is fast approaching, and the people of Maine, all of whom have a common interest in its object, should not permit any lack or waste for want of suitable and timely action. A word to the wise is sufficient. Failure of Hall’s Arctic Expedition. Sudden Death of Capt. Hall—The Steam er Polaris loses a part of Her Crew— Nineteen Persons Saved after Drifting Eight Honths on an Iceberg—Damaged Condition of the Polaris when last Heard from—Statement of Capt. Tyson, etc., etc. A St. John, Newfoundland, despatch dated the 9th iust., gives the unwelcome news of the failure of Hall’s Arctic Expedition, the death of Captain Hall and the recovery of nineteen survivors by the seal steamer Tigress, which arrived at Boberts Bay, nineteen miles distant, that morniDg. The following arc the names of the rescued: H. C. Tyson, assistant navigator; Frederick Meyer, meteorologist; John Heron, Steward; W. C. Kruger, Frederick Janika, William Winderman, Frederick Anting, Gustave T. Linguist, Peter Johnston, seamen; William Jackson, cook: Esquimaux Joe, intemretcr; Hannah and child, Esquimaux; Hans Christ ian (of Kane’s expedition) his wife and four children, the youngest only eight mouths old. This party which had been landed from the Polaris were driven from her by a gale which burst her moorings on the 15th of October 1872, in lat. 72° 35 min. When they last saw the Polaris she was und er steam and canvass, making for the harbor on the east side of Northumberland. She had no more boats left of the six she brought from from the port of New York. Two were lost in a northern expedition, two were landed on the icc with Captain Tyson’s party, one was burnt to make water for the crew, and the other is on board the Tigress. The Polaris was in command of Captain Bud dington, who hsd thirteen of the crew along with him and a plentiful stock oi provisions. Her bow was somewhat damaged, and it is the opinion of the survivors that they will be un able to get clear until July, and even then if the ship is unseaworthy they would have to make new boats to make an escape. Ou the 8th of November, 1871, in latitude 81° 38 min., longitude 71° 44 min., Captain Hall died of apoplexy and was buried on shore, where they erected a wooden cross to mark his grave. He had recently returned from a northern sledge expedition, in which he had attained the altitude of 82° 10 min. He seemed in his usual health, and had. called the crew into the cabin to encourage them with hopes of future re wards, and stimulate them to renewed exer tion, whenlie was suddenly struck down, and expired, to the great grief of those around him, to whom he had endeared himself by his kind ness and devotion. In September, 1871, the Polaris entered win ter quarters and left August 12, 1872. The ice was very heavy and set in a southern direction. She was forced south and so continued drifting till Captain Tyson .and party were driven from her. The sledge party crossed Kane’s Polar sea, which they pronounced to be a strait about fifteen miles wide. There was an ap pearance of open water to the north. The rescued party suffered very much during their dreary drift, from hunger and cold, For the last two months they ate raw seal and polar hear as they could get it. When met by the Tigress they showed evident signs of great suf ferings; but during the nine days that they have been on board they have improved vastly, and are now in fair health. The party is in charge of the United States consul, and will ar rive at St, John on Monday next. STATEMENT OF CAPTAIN TYSON. The following statement was furnished by Captain Tyson: On the 24th of August wo left Tessinsack and went through Smith’s Sound. We succeeded in getting as far north as lat. 82° 1G min. when we returned and win tered as Polaris Bay, lat. 81° 38 min., Ion. 61° 44 min, We were frozen up untill the 5th of September. On the 10th of October, Captain Hajl started on a sledge journey north and re turned on the 24th, when he was taken sick and died on the 8th of November. He was buried on the lltli. The attack that carried him off was said to be apoplexy. We passed the winter at Polaris Bay. On the 8th of June, 1872, we attempted to reach the north with two boats. We hauled our other boat on shore and returned overland on the 8th of July. We started for home on the 12th of August, and ou the 15th were beset with ice in latitude oUu U-. we drifted from that down to lattitude 77° 35, when we encountered a heavy southwest gale. The ship being under heavy pressure on the night of the 15th, we commenc ed landing provisions, etc., on the ice, the ves sel being reported leaking very badly at times. We continued landing provisions for two or three hours,-when the pressure increased. I went on board the vessel and asked the sailing master if the vessel was making any more water than usual, and he reported that she was not. I then went to the pumps and ascertained that she was not making any more than she was doing all summer. I went on the ice again, and shortly after it began to crack, and in a few minutes afterward broke in many pieces. The vessel broke from the fastenings, and was soon lost to sight in the darkness anil storm. On the broken ice were most of our provis ions to sustain the party through the winter, and seeing nothing of the vessel we attempted to reach shore, in hopes of finding natives to as sist us in living through the winter. Getting about half way to the shore with our heavy laden boats, our progress became hard with the drifting ice, and I was compelled to haul upon the ice again. At this time succeeded in sav ing fourteen cans of pemiuicau, elcven-and-a half bags of bread, ten dozen one and two pound cans of meat and soup, fourteen hams, one small bag of chocolate weighing twenty pounds, some musk-ox skins, a few blankets,a number of rifles and abundant amunition. In the morning, knowing that I had not pro visions enough and other articles of food, cloth ing, compasses, etc., on the abatement of the gale, I endeavored to shoot as many seals as possible, both for food, light and fuel, but could only get three, owing to bad weather hav ing set in. I supposed the wind to be about south-west. .On Us clearing up I found myself within eight miles of what I supposed to lie the faat .<-?ast>.and about thirty or forty miles be °T,the al*ip. The ice being weak, I could not transport the boats and provisions to land until it grew stronger. v. i1 d'sc°vered my other boat, bread, etc., and saved all. The ice grew firm and I made another attempt to reach the shore carrying everything in the boats and dragging them on thekeel. .The ice being exceedingly rough, we stove both boats. Wo succeeded on the 1st of November in getting about half wav to the shore, when the night came on us and very stormy weather. In the morning the ico was broken, and we were driftin'* south ward very fast. Wo saw no more land for many days. Bad weather continuing all through the month of JSovember, we built snow houses and made our selves as comfortable as we could. We were ten white men, two Esquimaux, two women and five children in all. We succeeded m killing a few seals, which furnished us with light and fuel with which to warm our scanty allowance of food through the darkness of the Arctic W In^the latter part of February we lived prin cipally upoubirds, and in March commenced to S seate. Through that month we support ed ourselves on bear’s and seal s fish, wasting neither skin nor entrails. We collected enough food in this way to last us until the middle of May, had we not been driven to sea by a strong wasterly gale in the latter part of March, our floe piece being then reduced from five miles in circumference to about twenty yards in diameter. We left the piece on the 1st April, and aban doned nearly all our meat, a large amount of ammunition, clothing, skins and other articles taking a portion of the meat in a boat, which we were obliged to throw overboard on account of the boat s being so deeply laden. I regained the outer edge of the pack of ice on the 3d of April, and succeeded in getting a little further in the pack. On the 4th a heavy northeast gale set in, a heavy sea running under, which bioke it in small pieces, so that we had to live on small pans, as we could not put the poat out, neither could we find seals tor food. On the 2lBt of April we sighted a polar bear. Every person was ordered to lie down and imi tate the seal, while the two Esquimaux secreted themsevles behind a piece of ice, enticing the bear near enough to us to|bimhim.A few days af ter this we got our boat in the water, and work ed our way west and southwest, and continued to work every opportunity to the westward, in the hopes of reaching Labrador coast and get ting temporary relief. \Ve were picked up by the steamship Ti prees. Captain Bartlett, on the 30th of April, in latitude 53-35 north, longitude 55° west, or near Wolf Island, and about forty miles from land. The Polaris is now without boats, having lost two in trying to get north in the spring of 1872. The Tigress fell in with the party in a dense fog, and providentially struck the very floe on which they were, otherwise they must have perished. They all seem tolerably well. Captain Ty son complained of swelled legs and feet, hut nothing serious is the matter with him. When they left the Polaris all on board were in good health. in reterence to the way in which the Rolans got away from the party which was rescued from off the iceberg, Captain Tyson stated that he felt little arxious at first, thinking she would soon come to their relief. It set my col ors as she steamed down along the shore, but the vessel was soon lost to sight in the bend of land, and behind what I took to be Northum berland Island. The piece of ice I was on commenced drifting southward as the wind hauled to the northeast, opening a little hay to the northeast of North umberland Island. I saw the vessel in the har bor there; her sails were furled and no smoke was issuing from her smokestack that I could see. I then attempted to bring my boats across the floe in an easterly direction, hoping to find water and reach the shore. I succeeded in dragging one boat across, took the water and attempted to reach the shore some distance be low the vessel. We were then drifting very fast, and the gale was blowing fresh, with great violence, from the northeast and snowing very fast ana drifting. I was driven back on the ice again and compelled to haul my boat out. In the morning we were about thirty miles southwest of where the ship went in the harbor. A heavy sea was running which broke my floe-piece, separating us from six bags of bread and one boat. I saw a vessel under steam and canvas , rounding a point to the northwest. Thinking she would come to our relief, I gave myself no extra anxiety, hut soon we were doomed to dis appointment, and from that time until the Ti gress rescued us we never got a glimpse of the Polaris. Bowdoin College.—The following members of the senior class at Bowdoin College have been appointed cont£|tauts for the 1868 prize: William A. Blake, J. F. Elliott, A. E. Herrick, Augustus F. Moulton, Clarence M. Walker and Fred A. Wilson. The military enthusiasm of tho students is apparently dying out, much to the regret of President Chamberlain and Major Sanger. A disposition to evade drill when possible, is man ifested. Surgical clinics at the Medical School re commenced Saturday, Dr. Greeue coming on from New York to conduct them. The attend ance was quite large. The medical students are loud in their prais es of Dr. Fred A. Gerrish of this city, who has just concluded the delivery of a d&urse of lec tures on Materia Medica. Tho lectures were noted for the admirable style in which they were delivered, as well as for their instructive ness and technical knowledge. Dr. Gerrish is regarded as a rising man in the faculty. Massachusetts Hall looks quite young and fresh with its painted cheeks and its new head gear. __ Verdict Against the Grand Trunk.—In the Supreme Court at Bangor, Judge Appleton presiding, Samuel W. Pollard and wife recover ed a verdict of §1300 against the Grand Trunk Railroad. The evidence disclosed that Mrs. Pollard, while travelling on tlio defendant’s railroad by permission of the conductor of the train, got out of the oars at Coaticook to leave a check for her trunk, and that before she had time to transact her business the cars started, and she was, while attempting to get upon the train, thrown violently down and injured. The defendants set up that she undertook to get upon the train after it started. [Reported for the Prese.1 Maine Conference of the M. E. Church. Skowhegan, May 9. THIRD day.

The third question was resumed, “Who re main on trial?” The characters of Peter E. Norton and J. Roscoe Day were passed, and their relation continued. Took up the fourth question, “Who are ad mitted into full connection?” Henry Heath was reported withdrawn from the connection and ministry. The relation of S. E. Walker was continued and, he being detained at home by sickness, a collection was taken in his behalf amounting to 53.65. Th# relation of D. H. Hanaburg was contin ued. J. H. Wasli and W. H. Meredith were elect ed to Elder’s orders and admitted. F. W. Smith, E. L. French and Delano Perry, were elected to Deacon’s orders and ad mitted. The 23d question was taken up, “Where and when shall the next Conference be held?” Farmington, Winthrop, Bath, Hallowell, Gar diner and Biddeford extended invitations. Biddeford was fixed upon as the seat of the next Conference. Prof. R. T. Townsend, of Boston Theological Seminary was introduced and addressed the Conference. Rev. Wm. H. Gilbert, of Hartford Conn., Superintendent of tbe American Bible Society for New England, was introduced and present ed the claims of that Society. A number of clergymen from other confer ences were introduced. Afternoon. Prof. Townsend of Boston preachOd an exoellent sermon from Hebrews 12th chapter, 2d clause of the 1st verse: “Lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us. The discourse was listensd to attentively by a large congregation and. was followed by earnest exhortations from numer ous speakers who bore testimony from their own experience to the truths that were ad vanced. Evening. The church was filled to its ut most capacity to listen to a lecture from Bishop Haven on Mexico. The numerous letters from the Bishop, descriptive of the country, and peo Sle among whom he has so recently travelled, ave awakened an interest in the minds of his readers to hear from him concerning the mis sionary movements of our church in that laud, l he people here wero entertained and profited oy one of the most pleasing and instructive lectures that we have ever heard Clyde. The Call Divorce Case. To the Editor of the Press : I noticed a communication in your paper in regard to the case recently tried in Wiscasset which I think does great injustice to Dr. Call.’ After the testimony was closed on both sides' Dr. Call's counsel stated to the court that in his judgment Dr. Call was fully vindicated from every charge brought against him, and that upon the evidence Mrs. Call was not entitled to a divorce, but there was an incompatibility be tween the parties which rendered it undesirable that they should continue to live together, and therefore Dr. Call himself desired a divorce to be decreed, which was accordingly done. There was no “drawing up” of the defence, or any other feeling on the part of Dr. Call or bis counsel, than that upon the evidence. The ver dict ought, and probably would be, in favor of Dr. Call. But as in that event the marriage re lation would still exist, which Dr. Call did not desire, he preferred to let a divorce go upon the slight ground of incompatibility, C. News and Other Items.

No Postponement. It Is not wise to put off until the heats of summer have commenced the invigorating process which would have socurod the system, in advance, against this untoward infiuence. By toning the stomach, liver and bowels in the spring months with Hostet ter’s Stomach Bitters, and continuing to take this harmless but powerful vegetable invigor&nt during the summer, it is quite certain that even persons who are naturally delicate and deficient in vital force may escape the fits of indigestion, headache, nausea, biliousness, nervous debility and mental oppression which, in the absence of such preparation, often prostrate and agonize the more robust. A pure stimulant, medicated with the juice of the finest ton ic, anti-bilions and aperient roots and herbs, as an invaluable boon to the weak and ailing, and this liie sustaining boon in the form of Hostetter’s Bitters, is fortunately within the reach of all.

For Catarrh, Dyspepsia, Habitual Cos tiveness, Palpitation of the Heart, Head ache, Piles, Nervousness and General pros tration of the Nervous System, no medicine has ever given such perfect satisfaction as the VEGE TINE. It purifies the blood, cleanses all of the or gan*, and posseses a controlling power ovexj the Ner vous system. The remarkablo cures effected by VEGETINE have induced many physicians and apothecaries whom we know to prescribe and use it in their own families. In fact, VEGETINE is the best remedy yet discov ered for the above diseases, and is the only reliable BLOOD PURIFIER yet placed before the public.
