Wo are requested to remiud the corporators, (and their associates) of the new Fire Insur ance Company, of the adjourned meeting at the Collector’s office in the Custom House at 3 o’clock tlii3 afternoon. Mr. D. M. Elliot, Principal of Yarmouth Academy, has resigned his preeeptorship, to go into the business of life insuranoe. The trus tees of the academy have made a proposition to the town, which will probably he accepted looking to the conversion of the institution into a free high school. Tuesday night the shop of J. E. Conway, Ferry House, C. E., was entered by means of a false key. The money drawer was rifled of the coppers and nickels which it contained, but nothing else was taken. The key was broken off in the lock. Our readers must not forget the amateur per formance of “Peep O’Day” at Mnsic Hall, Friday aud Saturday evenings. The play is excellently well rendered. Mr. C. L. Gorham, of the Gorham pianos, mailed the first postal card which came to this city. It was sent Monday. Deputy sheriff Matthew Adams has been r.p pointed Adjutant of the First Kegiment of State militia. President Grant will pass through this city in July en route to the Togus asylum. Miss Adelaide Phillips will take a solo part in the rendering of St. Peter by the Haydn’s. The Fair to be held at Bath in aid of the Maine General Hospital comes off the 5th and 6th of June. The sum of §25 wa3 realised for the library fund at the exhibition given by the pupils of the Fourth Grammar School yesterday after noon. At the semi-annual meeting of the Grand Trunk Company, held in London on the 21th ult., American locomotives were spoken of as much superior to the English. The Board have voted to replace their English locomotives by 300 American ones, which will be fumishod by the Portland Company. The tower of the India street church is -fast approaching completion,and will soon he ready for the reception of the fire alarm bell. The City Marshal has offered a reward of three hundred dollars for the detection and conviction of the person who set fire to tho house of M. Welch on Larch street. Postal Cards.—Fifty thousand postal cards were received at the post office in this city yesterday. The rush for them was great, near ly every one wishing to know how it seemed to write a message on one of them. One gentle man sent a card to his family up town, inform ing them that he should not be home to supper; aud then hurried horns to enjoy their astonisb meut at its receipt. Another gentleman took the precaution to write his message in Spanish, very sure that few people could then read it. Between one and six o’clock yesterday after noon 22,000 cards were sold in quantities from a siDgle card to 5000. The cards are put np in packages of 25, and these in boxes conta:ning 20 packages. Each card is five inches in length by three in breadth, buff in color, with lathe work border, hearing upon the right upper cor ner of the obverse the stamp (a vignette head of libert.yjhpon the left upper corner the words “IT. S. postage card” ana below these lines for the direction. The reverse of course blank for the message. The card is very neat, convenient and pretty. The Cary Concert.—In relation to the Cary concert, which takes place Friday evening, “Sidney,” the well known correspondent of the Boston Journal, writes to that paper as follows: There is to he here, at the City Hall, on the 16th inst., a grand concert in aid of the Maine General Hospital, at which the distinguished contralto, Annie Louise Cary, has volunteered her services and will make her last appearance in public prior to her departure for Euiope. She will bo assisted by her sister, Ada Cary, and the Beethoven Quintette Club of Boston. It will be a rich treat. Nosinger stands higher than Annie Louise Cary, not only as a vocalist but as a woman. In spite of adulation and honors, she is as unaffected and lady-like as ever. She is ever ready to aid worthy and deserving ob ■ jects. She loves music with her whole intense nature, and hence the glorious expression and soul with which her vocalism is enriched. She sails for Europe on the 21st inst., in the Wyo ming, and will pass a few weeks in London, with several other Portland vocalists, enjoying the musical season there. She comes on from New York on purposoto assist in the Maine General Hospital fair concert, which institu tion sho has already aided on two occasions. At the recent complimentary benefit here sho w as the recipient of over $1000, tho net pro ceeds—a well merited result. Annive os ary Entertainment.—To-night is the 9th anniversary of Mystic Lodge I. O. G. T., and they propose to celebrate the occasion by giving a dramatic entertainment at Grand Army Hall. They have secured some of tho best amateur talent in the city, and we have no doubt that it will bo one of the most pleasing entertainments of the season. We had the pleasure of witnessing one of tho rehearsals, and were surprised to sec the progress that these young artists have made. In the most difficult of the roles wo recognize two of Portland’s fa vorite artists, Miss Alice Carle and Miss Ella Bonney. Their presence is always a guarantee of success In dramatic entertainments, ft will trouble a professional company to excel the performance that this company will give this evening at Grand Army Hall. India Street Entertainment.—The enter tainment at India street vestry last evening was very successful, there beiug a good atten dance, and everything passed off pleasantly. Those present were highly delighted. The en tertainment will be repeated this evening with a change of bill, the “Vision of Earth” by 20 young ladies being given. Those who wish for a pleasant time will do well to attend. Maine Savings Bank.—This institution held its annual meeting yesterday afternoon, and the following ofbccrs were elected, viz: President, Benjamin Kingsbury, Jr. Vice President, Charles Holden. Treasurer, Alfred M. Burton. Paine8* ^^eus It°gera and Frank II. Investing Committee, Benj. Kingsbury, Jr., Samuel ivolfe, Wrm, E. Gould and A. M. Bur ton. Examining Committee, Samuel Eolfe and Charles Holden. Messrs. Henry H. Burgess, A. L. Gilkcyand J. S. Kicker were chosen members of the eor poration. It was then voted that all sums of one dollar e.nd upward deposited on the first day of every month begin to draw interest at once, and sums deposited during the remaining days of the month begin on interest tho following month. It was also voted to procure tho photographs of Charles Baker and Nathaniel F. Deering, past Treasurers, and have them placed in the banking room. The following resolutions were unanimously passed: Whereas. Nathaniel F. Deering, late Treasurer of the Maine Savings' Bank, has been removed by the Divine Provideuce from the active duties of the life here to the higher and better life beyond the grave; therefore Resolved, That we desire to place on record our ap preciation of his rare and upright character, and to testify to the ability and arduous duties of the office he has held for the past seven years; associated with the Bank from its organization in 1859, either as Trustee or Treasurer, it is indebted largely to his financial ability and deep and constant interest in its growth for its present success. Resolved, That we shall not only feel the loss of his official labors, but we shall miss the genial presence of a true friend, whom we had learned to love as well as respect. Resolved, That the Secretary be instructed to fur nish a copy of these resolutions to the family of Mr. Deering and to the daily papers. iY LAND DIFFICULTY — reports this morning give in their usual brief foim the results of a trial before Judge Virgin, of considerable interest. It was a question of the assessment of land damages, in which the United States appears as plaintiff. It appears that the government required certain lands on the Cape on which to erect a fort and a battery. I It had already purchased a strip embracing a hill nearly hack of tho lighthouse, containing twenty-two acres, for the sum of §127 per ac e. This strip was not deemed sufficient for the pur pose desired, and proposals were made to the owners of land on either side of the lot already purchased. Messrs. Thompson and Dyer were willing to sell provided they received their price, which they modestly stated was $40,000 for tho lot on the right side, and $40,000 for the lot on the left side. Uncle Sam’s agents thinking this rather a high figure, made an offer which was rejected. Then these agents took the or dinary method for settling the difference of opinion as to the real value of tho laud by bringing the question bofore the court— Messrs. Strout and Vinton, counsel for the re spondents, talked largely about the splendid sea view and prospective value, and aired their romantic dreams of sea-side villas in fervid elo quence. Messrs. Webb and Reed, who appear ed for the United States, after stating the plain facts and figures, asked tho jury to “assess the fair market value of the land and the damages by reason of the appropriation.” Mr. Webb could not let so tempting a subject as the fine scenery plea developed by the counsel on the other side pass without a display of that wit, humor, logic and eloquence for which he has achieved so deserved a reputation. The jury yesterday awarded to Mr. Thomp son $2,275 for 15J acres and to Sir. Dyer $1,357 for 111-3 acres. Art Notes.—A fine painting of Pleasant Cove, by Harry Brown, adorns Hale’s window. The picture is marked by the softness of color finish of detail and unity of effect, which arc attributes of former paintings by the same brush. The long wedge-shaped rock, moss-car peted, which juts out into the water, is excel lently managed, and tho group of pleasure seekers'upon it, clad in bright colors, have an admirable effect, while the brown boats off tho beach give the needed sombre touch. The painting has been sold to a gentleman of this city. There is also on exhibition in the same win dow an oil portrait of the late Rev. N. W. T. Root. It represents him as he was in early manhood, and will ho scarcely recognized by our citizens as a likeness of the genial Rector of St. Pauls. A Gypsey girl, by Mrs. Murray, and an excellent photograph of Representative W, W. Thomas, Jr., of this city, are also to be seen. Eleazer M’Kenney.—Our community will be pained to hear of the death of Mr. Eleazer M’Kenney, which occurred at his residence on Spring street about five o’clock yesterday af ternoon. The event was not unexpected, as the disease under which he labored was at his advanced age necessarily fatal. Mr. M’Kenney was one of our oldest and most respected mer chants. For years he kept a grocery store on Congress, near the head of Green street, which was a noted resort for the best checker players in the city. He afterwards went into the wholesale flour business, and at the time of his death was a member of the firm of Alden & M’Kenney. In 1858 and 1859 he was a member of the Board of Aldermen, and for many years has been a director of the Traders’ Bank. He was noted for his probity and the sterling qual ities of his character. Mr. M’Kenuey way 71 years of age. He leaves a wifo and five child ren. Select Entertainment.—The entertain ment to which we referrel to in yesterday’s is sue, was given in Free street vestry last even ing, to a very interested audience. The exer cises consisted of solos and duetts by Mr. Geo. Thomas, Miss Chandler and Mies Alice Carl* all of which were encored. Declamations and a few very interesting remarks by the pastor followed Also the reading of the paper that is published by the society, called the “Experi ment.” .Judging from this number of the spicy little sheet we should say that it was a success. At the close of the entertainment all were invited to step into the small vestry where refreshments were for sale. The committee will realize a sum sufficient to carry out their plans in regard to altering their vestry. Boy Missing.—On Monday noon a young boy named Willie Hainesstrayed from his home No. 32 Merrill street, and lias not since been heard from. For two days his father has been searching for him, and it is feared that some accident or foul play must have befallen him for ho was a bright, smart boy. He is eleven yeais old, about four feet high, slim build, dark blue eyes, dark hair, and had on his old clothes considerably patched. Any information will be thankfully received by his parents. Children’s Concert.— The young people who propose taking part in the children’s con cert to be given on the 31st inst, for the benefit of the Maine General Hospital, assembled at Reception Hall, City Building, yesterday after noon, for the purpose of rehearsing. Nearly the whole nu mber of children required, 500, were present. The rehearsal was very satis factory. The affair, it will be remcm bored, is under the charge of Mr. William D. Fitch. Hospital Fair.—The Ladies Executive Committee of the Maine General Hospital Fair will be in session at the rooms, 120 Middle St., on Friday, May 17th, at 4 of clock P. M. It is earnestly requested that the Refreshment Com mittee of each church will 3cnd a delegate to confer with the Executive Committee and to make definite arrangements with regard to the Fair. Mary S. Deerino, Sec. Clothes Line Thief.—Jere Reagan, a well known thief, whose operations are confined to no particular department of thieving, was ar rested by Deputies Williams and Bridges yes terday afternoon, for the larcony of clothes from tbo clothes line of a Mr. Seott, who lives on Forest street. Reagan was arrested neaa the Poor I' arm. He has but recently served ont a sentence in the State Prison. Sheridan and Mack.—This evening the excellent variety troupe of Sheridan and Mack give an entertainment at Music Hall. This company, which consists of eighteen mem bers, gave great satisfaction at its last appear ance here.

BiRTiis.-The numberof births in this city from April 1, 1372, to April 1, 1873, was C33. Of this number 316 were boys and 317 girls. The odd girl is destined in all probability to be the “su perfluous woman’’ of whom we hear so much. To save from the fate which impends over her if she remains in New England, we advise her to go West, young woman, go West. Room Papers.—Lothrop, Devens & Co., call attention to their advertisement of the largest paper hanging establishment this side of Bos ton.

Nelson Dingley, Jr., as the Republican candinate for Governor, believing that the election lies be tween that gentleman and Judge Kent. MASSACHUSETTS. Broker in Trouble. Boston, May 14.—Reports are current that J. A. Coe, hanker and broker at 76 State street, has been raisiug money by raising figures on stock certificates. It is alleged that one share of Old Colony Railroad stock aud one of the Eastern - Railroads were made to represent ono hundred shares each and pledged for collateral for the increased amount. The matter is un dergoing investigation. Coe was arrested at his residence in Worces ter street this afternoon. Among his alleged operations are raising certificates of the shares of the Michigan Central to 300 shares; two of the Boston & Albany Railroad to 200 shares; one of the Eastern Railroad to 100 shares; three Old Colony from two to 200, and three of one share to 100 each. The Boston Water Power stock is also said to have been operated with in a similar manner. The altered certificates have been used as collateral, and it is supposed about 8200,000 has been fraudulently obtained. It it reported that one concern suffers by the forge ries to the extent of $50,000, another $20,000, one $10,000, one $7000, another$20,000, amount ing iu all to upwards of $100,000, with more to hear from. The Third National Bank in Janu ary last loaned Coe $20,000, taking as collateral a certificate for 200 shares of the Old Colony Railroad, which now proves to have been raised from a genuine certificate for two shares of the same stock. Coe, who was formerly connected with the house of J. N. Fisk, is about 35 years old, and in course of quite large business expe rieuce for a man or bis years, has hereto fore sustained an enviable reputation. He is one of tho best known men on the street and is a member of the Brokers’ Board. Oakes Ames’ Will. Hon.

Halifax, May 14.—The latest news from the Drummond colliery this morning represents that the fire is still raging in the shafts and slopes, and that all hope of rescuing the men must be abandoned. It is now stated that there were sixty men in tne pit. Another heavy ex plosion occurred in the mine about two o’clock this morning. There is some prospect of sav ing the buildings above ground should the wind continue from tha present quarter, but if the wind changes, the buildings will bo destroyed. It is thought to be almost impossible that any of the men in the pit can be living.# It is known only four or five got out before the ex plosion. The fire caught from a blast of gun powder, and the men remained to put out the Haines. Gur report says that Mr. Dunn and thirty volunteers went down to assist in putting out the fire about twenty minutes before the ex plosion occurred, at which time it is supposed that all the men were near the flames and that many if not all were killed at once by the ex plosion.

When the noise and confusion had partly subsided a shout was given that “here comes Giant,” and as soon as the President made his appearance in front of the audience, the entire assemblage rose to their feet and three deafen ing cheers went up from a thousand voices in honor of the Chief Magistrate. After order had been restored Gen. Burnside, President of the National Encampment, said: “My duty in opening this meeting gives me much pleasure, and as we assemble in tills beautiful New England city to meet the com rades of onr soldier life, let us not forget those who are absent and sleeping under the green sod of the Southern States. There are a grea t number of distinguished gentlemen present who will address you this afternoon, and it is my pleasure to introduce to you the orator of the day, Maj, Gen. Deveus of Hartford." As the commanding form of Gen. Devons appeared in front of the stage, three cheers were given. The orator after welcoming tlie members of tlie Army of tlie Potomac, gave an eloquent sketch of the military career of Gen. Meade commencing at the time when ho grad uated at West Point and following his history through the Mexican campaign up to the time when he took command of the Army of tho Potornac. A very full resume was given of tho victory achieved by Gen. Meade at Gettysburg, tho speaker interspersing his remarks with many comparisons drawn from conflicts that have taken place in Europe, and said that none were so grand or showed greater valor than that ex hibited by the Army of the Potomac in repel ling the famous charge of Longstreet’s rebel corps at Cemetery Ridge. It was thcie, he said, the first furious onslaught was made and vigoroasly repulsed by our troops. The soldiers of Meade charged upon the wavering lines of the foe and scattered them to the woods, the advancing column in this way gathering sheaves of battle flags and thousands of prisoners. The speaker was frequently interrupted by loud applause and other enthusiastic demon strations. Gen Van Zandt of Newport, then delivered a poem full of fun and good hits as well as fine poetry, which was well received. The President was loudly called for and in compliance with the call he stepped to tho front of the platform and addressed a few words to the audience. The other distinguish ed gentlemen on the stage were each culled out in turn and followed the President’s exam ple by making brief responses. This evening tlie concert by Gilmore’s Band was given. It was a fine concert aDd was largely attended. At the close Col. D. R. Wright made a speech of welcome to the G. A. R., to which General Burnside briefly responded. Major Gen. McDowell was elected President of the society of the Army of the Potomac. The other officers are the same as last year. An elegant banquet came off at 11 o’clock. THE MODOC WAR. Lava Beds.

Tins was through a movement of which this last af fair was a feature. It is still progressing and several bodies of troops are seeking an engage ment- Gen. Davis found the soldiers disheart ened hut he studied the situation carefully, uti lized the experience of his predecessors, gave tlie wearied soldiers time to recuperate from their fatigues, sent out scouting parties, had 1ns men disciplined in Indian dodges and now has his first grand movement in operation. It is his intention to harrass the Modoc*, keep them moving from place to place, and subdue them. The men say Gen. Davis means business. Au Unpleasant Woman.

Puente De Eoaul, near Stella, in Navarre, May 5th, was the most im portant yet fought, and was a complete victory for Dorregarav. Four days previously tlie Car list troops were surprised at Pena Cerrada by a government column and Retreated with the greatest precipitation towards the mountains. Other government forces cooperating joined in the pursuit. These five columns, encouraged by the fight, pursued them with such energy that Dorregaray in sixty honrs marched his men forty-eight miles. Ou the forth day the Carlists troops were completely broken down but the government troops were distanced ex cepting only oue column under Col. Novara, composed of regular troops with a battery of ar tillery. Dorregarry continued to turn sudden ly, probably to deliver a blow to cripple this force. He consequently found a line of battle at Puenta Erault. He had almost 3000 men in the position. The government troops on com ing up occupied the high ground which gave the artillery a command of thefCarlist position and the sweep of the ground between. The Carlists had no artillery. At three o’clock in the afternoon the government troops advanced handsomely supported by a fire from their bat tery, which, although not very destructive, made the Carlists, who have exaggerated re spect for cannon, very easy eveu while doing little harm. When the battle raged at this point, Elio, who overlaneded the government right, made his way throughout the Chapparal, thus getting wrell outhe flank of the government force. In the front Lizarraga peppered away to some purpose, keeping his men mostly under cover. The fight continued on these terms for nearly an hour, both sides losing men. Many soldiers carrying the dead and wounded Carlists passed me.
