Tewksbury lu Dcering on tho night of the 24th of April. The defendant was at work for the doctor as a car penter and slept night3 in the harness room adjoin ing the stable. On the evening of the larceny, Mr. Hayes, who had charge of the stable, at seven o’clock put up the team, leaving the harness and headstalls in the stable, locked the door and carried the lap robs into the harneas room, which is soparato from the stable. Hayes eays ho locked the stablo and put tho key together with the key to the harness room in a con cealed place known only to him and the defendant.— At ten o’clock Ilaycs went over to the stable, found the harness room door locked on the inside and Thay er inside; that everything was all right so far as he saw.

Thayer denied all knowledge of the larceny. Ho says he got home that night at nine o’clock, found the keys in the harness room door, and immediately went to bed.

The deed of Smith's wharf was entered for record by W. L. Putnam, attorney for the Bos ton & Maine railroad, yesterday afternoon. Tho High School class of '75 have been a Mayiug. They had a gargantua among them who eat up all the provisions and then cried for more. Then they thought it best to return home. The 140 pictures sold at Lancaster Hall this week brought about $1500. Now they tell us that Sir Edward Thornton is not to occupy a summer residence near this city. Perhaps we can get along without him. We'll try. The Falmouth brought a quantity of goods from Halifax saved from the wrecked Atlantic. A Grand Trunk train butted against a bakers cart ou Commercial street yesterday and broke the wheels. Twenty large despatch boxes have been filled with papers belonging to the office of the As sessor of Internal Revenue in this city, and the end is not yet. These boxes are to be sent to the Treasury Department at Washington. A meeting of the corporators of the new fire insurance company was held at the Collector's room, Custom House, yesterday afternoon, No business was transacted and the meeting was adjourned uutil next Tuesday. Entry thieves arc about, so lock your doors. Steamer Lewiston will commence her sum mer arrangements next week, leaving every Tuesday and Friday evenings at 10 o’clock. The seventh anniversary of the Army & Navy Union will be celebrated by a junketing at Cape May. A Portlaud man was sharp enough to ma ke $25 out of two Boston pocket-book “frauds.” A $50 counterfeit bill figured conspicuously in the transaction. in our report oi tne proceeumgs ot tne Maine Savings Bank, we unintentionally omitted to mention the name of C. J. Morris esq,, who was chosen a member of the corporation. Lieut. Howe, who was killed in the Modoc massacre, is tlic second Bowdoin graduate who has lost bis life in Indian warfare. The other one was Lieut. Frederick Beecher, killed some years since. A placard of the Commuue, pulled from the burning walls of Paris by Minister Washburn, is framed and hung up iu the Portland Custom House. It is a fervent diatribe against the priests and constituted authorities. The fountain in the Park has received a coat of paint and is now ready for business. Mr. II. A. Fuller, the well knowu railroad contractor, is at the Preble House. There was a magnificent display of northern lights last evening. One great hand of red light extended across the sky from cast to west. Law Court Decision-TUo opinion of the Law Court upon the indictment pending in Kennebec county against the Maine Central Railroad, has just been announced by the court sitting in this city. The indictment was found under the statute for the benefit of Jos. eph Cavill, father of the fireman who lost his life by a collision of trains between Hallowell andFaruiingdale, Juno 27, 1871. The company demurred to the indictment and the case was argued at Augusta last year. The finding of the court is, demurrer sustained—indictment adjudged bad. Other indictments of the same nature are pending, which, of coarse, fall with this. ___ A Suggestion.—J udge Fox of the District Court made on Wednesday during the progress of the McGlincliy trial a very pertinent sugges tion. He found it difficult to hear the witness es distinctly owing to the echo produced by the height of the court room. His suggestion was that one or more wires of small size bo drawn across the upper part of the room below the ceiling. He stated that this method had been successfully tried in Boston. The suggestion is certainly a valuable one. A Voice From Wisconsin.—A lady in this city received twenty-five dollars last week in aid of the Maine State Hospital fund, from Mr. and Mrs.-, Maine people now residents of Wisconsin. This substantial and timely proof of the interest of old-time friends in our home institutions, gives us the pleasing assurance that our project is widely approved, since it en lists such hearty co-operation of friends in the far West. The Hospital Concert.—The concert to night for the benefit of the Maine General Hospital will be a most gratifying success. Nearly every seat in the Hall is already sold, aud the audience will be exceptionally good in size aud quality—such a one as always greets Miss Cary, who attracts such audiences as no one else can, and is thoroughly installed as prime favorite here. The more interest is felt in the concert as it is Miss Cary’s last public appearance prior to her departure for Europe on the 21st inst. She is in excellent condition and voice, comes fresh from her marvellous tri umphs in the Oratorio concerts in New lork, and the great Festival in Cincinnati and will invest her part of the concert with the usua charm. . The rest of the concert will also bo very a tractive. Miss Ada Cary's beauuful voice will be heard to advantage in the two pretty Eng-, lish songs assigned her in the programme. The Beethovens made a reputation for themselves by tlieir former appearance here and report says they are playing still better now. Mr. Kotzsehmar will play the accompaniments. It will bo a remarkably good concert. We append the PROGRAMME: 1. Overture, “William Tell”. Rossini Beethoven Quintette Club. 2. I love my love.Plnsuti.

Freight Statistics.—The following is a comparative statement of the amount of freight business transacted through Portland by the Grand Trunk for the six months beginning Nov. 1st and ending April 31st in 1871-2 and 1872-3: Forwarded 1371-2. Number of tons local freight forwarded from Portland. 15,632 Number of tons steamship freight forwarded.. 25,113 Total number of tons.'.40,715 Forwarded 1872-3. Number of tons local freight forwarded from Portland. 18,963 Number of tons steamship freight forwarded.. 27,883 Total number of tons..46,816 Making an increase of 0,101 tons forwarded from Portland for 1872-3 over 1871-2.

This state ment does not include the St. John and Hali fax business, which has about doubled that of a3t year. Pleasant Gathering.—The friends of Rev. Israel Luce, connected with Chestnut street church and congregation, met at his house on Wednesday evening to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Luce. The house was literally packed, and a more pleasant gathering we have never attend ed. Substantial evidences of their regard for their late pastor and family were left to the amount of about $300, $122 of which was in money, and the balance in silver ware and household goods. Mr. Luce in the three years that he has been pastor of this church, has en deared himself to the hearts of this people as few pastors have ever done, and in the broader field to which lie is now appointed, as Presid ing Elder of Portland District, we bavo no doubt be will win hosts of friends, and that the church generally will recognize the wisdom of his appointment. His frionds will be pleased to know his residence will still continue in this city. _ Eleazer McKenney.—At a meeting of the Directors of the National Traders’ Bank, yes terday, the following resolutions were adopted: Whereas it has pleased our Heavenly Father to PUlUlouly >ua*>« Ly It» lUih <►»»■ Ctiuul qml Muooiato, Mr. Eleazer McKonney, for twenty-eight years • Di rector in this Bank, we feel called upon to express our sorrow for the event and to give suitable heed to tbe solemn admonition. Resolved, That we bear testimony to the integrity ofour departed associate, to his urbanity and genial disposition as a companion, and to his carefulness as a trustee of corporate funds. Resolved, That we take pleasure in reflecting that while this bank has been steadily strengthened by increased resources during his long connection with it, he has also been equally successful in his own pe cuniary accumulations, without in any measure ob taining bank facilitcs for his private benefit. Reeolvei, That we deeply sympathize with the family in their sorrow, and we will attend the funer al of our deceased friend, provideuce permitting. Voted, That a copy of these resolutions bo sent to the family of the deceased and to the daily newspa pers for publication. In tbe ease of the United States vs. Thomp son and Dyer, a report of which we gave yes terday, an erroneous impression may have been conveyed by the statement that these gentle men claimed $40,000 of the government. The $40,000 was the nominal sum used in the plead ings in the nature of an ad damnum. Their claim was for so much as the land should be found worth and for whatever incidental dam age should accrue to them from the erection of tbe battery. Mr. Thompson claimed that the building of the battery would greatly injure, if not destroy his business of taking summer boarders, while it was claimed by the counsel for the United States that it would have no such effect. The jury awarded Mr. Thompson $2275 and Mr. Dyer $1357. Disorderly Houses.—By the prompt re moval of the notorious Mrs. Stetson from the house on Dow street, Marshal Parker is entit led to the thanks of the residents in that vi cinity. The statement of the Press, referring to the above case that ‘ ‘these disorderly houses are mul tiplying in the city and the evil seems to be on the increase,” is too true. As long as land lords will rent houses in respectable portions of tbe city, to such notorious and abandoned char acters, knowingly, we shall have reason for thankfulness that we have a police that is ready and prompt to abate such nuisances when called upon. Dow Street. Anniversary.—Tho ninth anniversary of Mystic Lodge No. 2, I. O. G. T,, was celebrated at Grand Army Hall last evening by the pre sentation of three popular dramatic pieces to quite a large audience. Miss Carle appeared as Catherine in “Household Fairy,” and as the Duchess in “Faint Heart,” and exhibited a charming grace and vivacity. Miss Bonney as the young King in “Faint Heart” won frequent applause. All the parts were well performed, and tho young amateurs have reason to feel proud of their success. We judge from the in dications in the ante-room that after the per formance supper was to be in order. Peep O’Day.—The amateurs of the Emerald Boat Club present “Peep O’Day” at Music Hall this and to-morrow evenings. The per formances are for the benefit of the Maine General Hospital. The play is excellently put l upon the stage, the scenery is more than ordi nanly good, and the acting is much better than the average. The Fair scene and the old quarry are particularly worthy of notice. Those who wish to help a good cause and see a good play, should not fail to attend. Lanceny.—Mr. A. s. Hinds, proprietor of the well known apothecary store, under the Preble House, has had reason to suspect for some days days past that a hoy who has been in his employ about six weeks, had been pilfer ing money, cigars, &c., from the store. Yes terday his suspicions were made certainties by the discovery of missing articles in the boy’s possession. Deputy Williams arrested the boy yesterduy afternoon. He is about sixteen years old. Boy Lost.—Manasseli Smith, Esq., is anx ious to ascertain the whereabouts of a boy nam ed Alfred Hall, a visitor from Quebec, who strayed from Mr. Smith’s residence early yes terday, and ha3 not been seen since. Tho boy is about nine yeors old, has deep red hair and freckled face, and wears a suit of dark clothes and a dark blue Scotch cap. Railroad Accident.—As the 8 o’clock p. m. train from Boston on the Eastern Railroad was passing Ipswich yesterday, the Pullman draw ing car caught in some obstruction on the track and was thrown off, breaking the forward trucks. The damage was slight and no one was injured, though several ladies on board the car fainted. Police Notes.—At one o’clock this morning there were in the station seven simple drunk ards, one drunkard and disturber of the Pea®f» one thief, and one young woman who oar el at a real nice place” but was recogniz a night walker by the police. , . And here let us inquire if it isn t about time that those who have this matter m charge be gan to act on the principle that drunkenness » a crime and cither fine those found drunk iu the streets, give them the privilege of com plaining against those who sell them the wretched rum, or send them to the work house [ or jail for thirty days as common nuisances. Let it be recoguized that drunkenness is an offence against society to be punisbad in every case of arrest and there will be less of it. India Street Entertainments.—The sec ond of a series of four entertainments at tbo vestry of the India street church, was given last evening to a delighted audience. The play was “Mission of Earth,” which was presented in fine style by a company of tweaty young ladies. Their costumes were in excellent taste and showed much careful preparation. To night they will be unable to present the piece that had been announced, owing to the illness of those who have been the most active in pre paring it. In the place of it the Sabbath School will hold a reunion, free to all. On Saturday evening they present the humorous play enti tled “The Chimney Corner.” Tiie Montgomery Guards.—Last evening this new military company made its first ap pearance on the street with full ranks, attract ing much attention and eliciting flattering com ment. Their uniform is both showy and in good taste. The men marched finely and show a determination to excel. If they continue in their praiseworthy efforts it will not be long ere the Montgomerys will be ranked among the very first of our volunteer companies. During the evening Capt. McMahon inspected his com mand. _ Sheridan & Mack.—Last evening Music Hall was filled with an audience that evidently went there to laugh and grow fat. Sheridan was unexpectedly absent, owing to the severe illness of a member of his family. His part was successfully filled by Miss Hoshell. This troupe are sure to draw a full house whenever they appear in this city, and never fail to give excellent satisfaction. Respect.—The eight stores and all the offices in Thomas’ Block, on Commercial street, will be closed Saturday afternoon, and the occupants will attend the funeral of the late Eleazer Mc Kinney, who had occupied one of the stores for some time previous to his decease. Saccarnppn. The Congregational chuich which has been undergoing remodeling, is now nearly complet ed externally and presents a very neat and at tractive appearance. An excellent clock has been put up in the tower with a dial of a novel style, being made of a frame work of iron. The interior of the church is plastered, and only the frescoing of the walls and ceiling and the wood finishing remains to be done, and it would seem that in about a month the edifice will be ready for dedication. .niSCELLANEOIlR NOTICES.

New York, May 15.—The general term of the Supreme Court rendered a decision this morning in the case of Nixon, the condemned murderer, denying a new trial or stay of pro ceedings. This decision destroys Nixon’s last chance, asGou. I>ix has declared that he will not interfere. Disagreement of a Jury. The jury in the case of Exhart and Hallon, dry goods importers, against ex-Collector August Schell, for §100,000 for exacting illegal duty on delaines, failed to agreesnd were this morning discharged. It is stated by jurors that they stood eight for the plaintiff to four for the defendant. Stokes's Case. Mr. Perrin, Clerk of the Court of Appeals this morning signed a writ issued by Judge Brady staying the proceedings in the case of Edward S. Stokos. This will bring the case immediately before the Court of Appeals, and as it requires only fourteen days notice under the rules of the court to bring the case on for hearing, the caso will no doubt be heard and decided before the court takes a reces3 in June. Silk in America. At the banquet of the silk manufacturers last night., John Newman, a silk manufacturer of San Francisco, said that within ten years America would be the chief silk producing country in the world. It has quadrupled itself within the last few years, and if the woolen manufacturers would only supply good yarn their poplins could be made equal to Irish goods The Suit against the Union Pacific. The suit of the government against the Un ion Pacific Railroad is to be brought before District Judge Shipman at Hartford. The bill in equity which was concluded yesterday will be filed on Wednesday next at Hartford, and consists of an elaborate statement of the case. The relief asked for and the documents con nected therewith and the theory of the bill are said to he that Congressional grants to tho Un ion Pacific Company were upon the trust that the property should be managed for the benefit of the security of the United States on account of government bonds and interest, which the United States pay on them, and that the mana gers of the company have not performed the trust, but have distributed a large amount of assets among themselves and for their private benefit. This distribution was accomplished b.y fraudulent contracts, and the government coun sel contended that the courts have power to compel these parties to restore the property in order that the security of the United States may be unimpaired. Tko Episcopal Convention—Election of Dr. Paddock HUhop. The Episcopal Convention to-day after pre liminary proceedings, commenced balloting for Bishop of the Massachusetts diocese. There was no choice the first two ballots. Dr. Potter was withdrawn at the first, and Dr. Paddock of Brooklyn, N. Y., and Dr. DeKoven were the leading candidates. On the third ballot Dr. Paddock received a majority of both clergy and laity, and the election was made uuani with but one dissenting voice. The reason urged against Dr. DeKoven was that he fcelfi the belief of the personal essenseof Christ was in the elements of the holy sacrament Social Science Association.

Denied. The published statements that complaius in regard to recent awards for Indian supplies iu New York city had assumed such gravity as to be brought by Secretary Delano to the atten tion of the President, and that the President had ordered the execution of the contracts sus pended pending the investigation, is denied on official authority. Secretary Delano says ttie facts arc that the awards should be made to them. . He referred these complaints to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs for a report, which is not yet prepared. The New System. A letter to Commissioner Douglass from an agent of the iuterual revenue office says: I have iust returned from a trip among some of our lew England collectors, and I find but one ex press’on among them in reference to the new stamp law. They all say they are collecting more taxes and doing it in a much easier and more satisfactory manner than under the old system. THE COAL MINE HORROR, The mine Still Burning Tlic Explosion Caused by the Use of Pow der—The nteu Victims to their own Stnbborucss—An Investigation doing on* * A allfax, N. S.. May 15.—A gentleman who returned from the burning colliery says that re lays of men have been to work since yesterday tillingup the slopes and air shafts with clay. The fire is st’ll burning as fiercely as ever. He went within a few feet of the mouth of the shaft, from which blue sulphurous flames were ascending twenty or thirty feet. The roar from the burning mine was something terrific. Dense volumes of smoke continue to ascend from several air shafts. No adequate idea can be formed of the terrible disaster. The com puted loss of property is enormous, but is noth ing in comparison with tbo loss of i life All the wood work in the mine is burned, and ex perienced miners say it is one mass of burning ruins. The causes that led to the disaster is not," as stated, to be occasioned by the strike of the miners, but to powder having been permitted to be used in one of the beds worked by a miner named Eobert McLeod, who insisted on using it unless he received higher rates for cutting without it. At the inquest yesterday, several important facts came out in the evidence, which show recklessness or carelessness in the work of the supervisor of the mines in the dangerous parts of the mine. The inquest yesterday afternoon was ou the body of John Dunn, one of the pit miners res cued front the pit, who died shortly after beiug brought to the surface. The first witness was Thomas Lowther, the foreman, who testified that the mine was care fully attended during the time the miners were out ou the strike, so that there could not have bsen an accumulation of gas when the miners returned to work on Tuesday. The second witness was James Duuston, who was in the mine when the fire occurred, testi fied that he found nothing unusual in the mine when he descended. When tlie word was pass ed that the mine was on fire all hands were re quested to go put it out. Those who refused to assist were ordered to leave, by remaining they would impede the progress of the others. Had the men obeyed the order when it was found possible to stop the fire there would have been plenty of time to put it out. The same level had been on fire before. A man was always sta tioned in the cabin to give miners information as to the condition of their places and to warn them of dangers. These regulations were at tended to as well as the furnaces forventilating the same level. There was more gas in some levels than others. In these the use of powder was prohbiited. The bed where the fire occur red was aired by lattice work. When giving the warning the witness went as far as the face of the bed but could do nothing in consequence of the smoke and fire. The miners attribute the calamity to the re- • fusal of the manager to give an eutra price to McLeod for getting out the coal in his ward, thereby enabling him to dispense with the use of powder. Ths names of the men who volun teered to go down the air shaft and explore the mine after the first explosion were Abraham Guy, Edward Burns, Thos. Glenwright and Timothy Howatt, all of whom lost their live-. Guy was above the surface when the first ex plosion occurred, and when bis terrible fate was made known to his wife the unfortunate wo man rent the air with screams. I* ia toniy lxMiuLrowling to pass ttrronjn me square of buildings where the families of the lost miners reside. The window blinds are drawn and tlie stillness is over the place, and there is nothing but weeping and wailing. Verdict of the Jury. The.jury have returned the following verdict: “We find that the said Johu Dunn came to his death on the 13tli inst., by an explosion of gas in the Drummond colliery, caused by a derange ment of theventilatorof tlie mine,'arisingfrom fife in Eobert McLeod’s Ward.” THE MODOC WAR. San Francisco, May 14.—A despatch from Yreka to-niglit says the Modocs are in another locky fortress, which they are making still stronger. The troops will not attack them be fore the arrival of reinforcements. The new position is about twenty miles south of their last stronghold. C. Burgess has seen Bogus Charlie on tlie Klamath, who said ho knew nothing about the contemplated massacre of tho commissioners, and that there were thirty Modocs left, who would fight until the last man was killed. Seventy-five men will be retained in camp to guard the stores until the (arrival of reinforce ments. Lieut. Harris died in the camp at the lava beds May 12th. Surgeon Semig is recovering. New York, May 15.—A lava bed despatch of the 13th says that Gens. Davis and Gilletn in crossing Tula Lake the previous evening during a heavy gale, had a narrow escape from drown ing. the boat becoming unmanageable. . The present force at the command of Gen. Davis is not considered sufficient to make a suc cessful attack on the Modocs in tlieir new stronghold, but the General will endeavor to hold the Indians where they now are. and await reinforcements, which, with mortars are hurry ing forward, and are expected in a few days. The troops are suffering from want of water. Willow Creek is the nearest stream, but the Modocs ate between it and the troops. The Modocs have their families with them and it is not thought they will seek to leave their present position until they have made pro uision for the safety of the women and cliil dren. Their loss in the fight of Saturday was two braves killed. A large part of their horses, ammunition and clothing were captured, and about two tons of provi ions were destroyed. The Modocs entered the fight stripped to their lieecli clouts, but could not resist the Warm Springs, who trotted into the light and ran the Modoc3 past their plunder, retaining all. THE GALLOWS. The End of the Murderer Ln«ifnani-A Strange Quarrel about the Remains. Morristown, N. J., May 15.—At the close of the prayers, Father Shecran kissed him and a constable drew the cap over his face. Instan taneous the Sheriff placed his foot on the spring and with a thud the 350 pounds at the end of the rope fell into a hole dug for the purpose, and Lusignani was jerked six feet into the air. A crucifix which he held in his right hand was retained nearly forty seconds, hen the mus cles relaxed and the crucifix fell. His legs were drawn up several times but otherwise there were no contortions of the body. At the end of two minutes, the pulse beats were 140 per minute; in four minutes 120, and in seven and a half the pulsation had ceased entirely.
The body was allowed to hand twenty-nine minutes when it was lowered into a plain but neat coffin of stained wood. As soon as the body was cut down, the Priest of Morristown asked to have the possession of it, hut was told the doctors must first certify the cause of death. Father Vasselo strenuously objected and told the .jail physician he would prosecute him if he touched the body. This having no effect, he declared that Priests would not receive the body if cut or mutilated, and that it could not be buried in a Catholic cemetery. The doctors refusing a certificate, the coro ner ordered an examination and it was found that death was caused by strangulation and not by distortion of the neck as was supposed. The body now lies iu the cell, awaiting burial, and if not claimed will be buried by the coun ty authorities. The execution occupied but five minutes from the time Lusignani entered the jail yard until he was hung. METEOROLOGICAL. PROP ABILITIES FOR THE NEXT TWENTY-FOUR HOURS.
