W; cannot undertake to return or reserve com munication* that are not used. The French Crisis. To say that the history of the I rench gov ernment has been a succession of crises from the advent of the present Assembly until the present hour, would be near the truth; but it must be evideut that the oue now impend ing, if indeed it has not already taken place, is to decide the future of that unfortunate coun try. The past two years rule in France is an enigma. There has been no majority in the Assembly, hut rather a half dozen factions that have cohered a few days or weeks against any possible reason that may he giv en for tlicir existence. President Thiers one day finds his support on one side of the chamber and the next on the other, and still another time from an aggregation of warriDg elements that have no natural affinity. Through the timidity of the leaders of fac tions, and by the fear they have had of him as much as by his adroit management, Thiers has rarely ever been without a majority when he required it. He has been the guiding pow er, always looking to what he has deemed the best good of France, aud when one party has deserted him with that April day like fielder ness so proverbial oi ths French, he has reso lutely looked for another party that would support him, holding out to it such minor in ducements as would not conflict with his main purpose. His administration has been a marvel. He has been able to secure the adjustment of the troublesome questions with Germany, managed the finances so marvel ously as to tare care of the immense German indemnity without great embarrassment, and by his internal policy, placed the industries of the country in the most prosperous condition —and all this without a reliable majority in the Assembly and even with one hostile, if it could he.organized. Now it seems that all this has changed and a combination formed to break him down. The results of the recent elections has alarm ed the enemies of Republican government in the Assembly. They see in them the success of toe Republic unless immediate and deci sive action is taken. Delay will give the Re pnbjisans the control of the Assembly. Con sequently the Orleanists, the legitimists and Bonapartists have united to break him down. Monday the monarchists on the election of President showed a decided majority. Wed nesday, with a fuller attendance, Martel who was defeated for the Presidency, \\ as elected as Vice President by seven majority. This is counted as a majority for President Thiers. To-day (Friday), the struggle was to begin by the monarchists moving an interpellation or questioning the President as to his future policy. This will be opposed by the support ers of Thiers. There will doubtless be an ex cited debate and the result of the vote will indicate the fate of Thiers. If he proves successful, there is, at least hope for a Repub lic and peace in the future. If he fails and the enemies of the Republic triumph, it re quires no prophet te predict the anrachy and bloodshed that will follow. The present crisis overshadows all others because the issue is mads strictly between all the various shades of monarchists and the Republicans and radicals—because it is evi dent that it settles for a time the future of that nation. The Ohio Convention. The Republican State Convention in Ohio last Wednesday, despite the fact that it is the “off year” following a protracted campaign, was a large body made np of the best elements in the State. Gov. Noyes, the soldier with a wooden leg, who made several effective speeches in this State last August, including one in this city, was re-nominated for Governor with hearty unanimity. AH of the nominations were made with unus ual unanimity; the only signs of disaffection appearing when Mr. Herzeing, the member of the Board of Public Works who supported Mr. Greeley,was nominated,but reconciliation rnied the hour. The resolutions are admira ble, showing that the Ohio Republicans flilly appreciate the questions of the hour and are heartily in sympathy with the best political purposes and asp rations of the people. In reference to the action of Congress in increas ing salaries, the convention speaks in the most emphatic terms, as may be seen from the resolution below: When retrenchment is required to lighten the burden of taxation and to continue the re duction of the public debt, an increase of salat ietis unwise. We condemn without reserve the voting tor or receiving of increased pay for services already rendered, and demand that the provisions of the late Act of Congress by which the salaries were increased shall be promptly and unconditionally repealed. This resolution was received, it is said, with shouts of approval; and as the conven tion was the first representative body of the Republican party in any of the leading States since the consummation of the salary steal, its utterances on the subject can he fully ac cepted as clearly indicating the sentiment of the Republican party, not only of Ohio, but throughout the country. Rev. W. H. H. Mubbay, of Boston, has recently written an article in the Congrego tUynaliat in which he shows very clearly how the influence of the clergy of the rural dis tricts might be useful in staying the disaster ous decline of agriculture in New England, and increasing the knowledge of the tanner in his vocation. To this end he urges the minister to employ his leisure in studying up the latest improvements of agriculture and prepare lectures on such subjects as the adap tation of manures to different soils, horticul ture, special crops, etc. The suggestion of Mr, Murray is worthy of commendation and may apply with equal force to other profes sional men in our rural towns. It is to be feared that, if the influence of the profession al man has not been unconsciously against the interests of agriculture, he has failed to give it that degree of encouragement that is required to restore it to its former condition and check the growing belief that farming has no rewards which has led the young maD to forsake the country and seek the over crowded city. Above all others, the intelligent minister, who comes in contact with the peo ple, can do a great work by interesting the young men in agricultural pursuits and coun teracting the pernicious idea that the city is the only place of existence. The Iloosac tunnel is proving a terrible bore to Massachusetts and its General Court. The Legislature don’t kuow what to do with it; and although the most influential papers oppose the scheme, it is evident that a major ity of the House in their despair of finding a better policy, will vote to purchase and run the railroads that wlH use it. It is very doubtful however, if the matter is disposed ofl at the present session, even if it ij continued through the year. The appointment of Thomas P. Packaxd, Esq., as postmaster atHoulton, must evident ly be under the civil service rules as he al. ways has been an-out and out Democrat, but has been retained in the office as assistant since he held it under Pierce and Bu chanan. _ We feared it, for we felt that he could not resist the temptation—that Subsidy Pomeroy would be'a candidate for Senator again in Baa. And now there comes the direful wires Kan llas, gone to that State to lay the wires- Kansas afresh. The nextcluTwe^rnT^r—— turn its back upon the WrnaUsU ’thltrtS for it on the Gubernatorial nominator is Rockland. ’ Tub demand for She pektal cards exceeds all the expectations! of the postal officials. Up to Wednesday night the orders received by the department for flie card# aggregate 22.000,000 and the daily Older averages 1, 000,000. Tlie preselit supply Is hut 400,000 a day but the contractor promises 600,000 daily soon, ... .. The New York Times publishes an order purporting to emanate from the United States commission at the Vienna Exposition which painfully indicates that the author, if he ever had a speaking acquaintance with the Eng lish language, never presumed so far upon its friendship, as to become familiar with the mysteries of its orthography and syntax. The Commercial Advertiser coolly as cits that the proprietors of the principal hotels ot New York have introduced for retail the Get tysburg Katalysine Water as an antidote for the had rum they sell. It may do as an auti dote, but the average New Yorker will stud* ously avoid it as being too thinfor a beverage. Ex-Congressman John Hill of New Jer sey writes to the Sergeant at Arms to cover his part of the back pay into the Treasury, statiug at the same tone that he did not draw it. believing that it would revert to the Treas ury after July 1st, the same as other unap" propriated expenditures. Eastern Normal School. The exercises of graduation and the dedica tion of the tew school building of the Eastern Normal School at Castine occurred on Wednes day and Thursday. The State was represented by Gov. Perham, State Superintendent John son, Messrs. Harlow, Thompson, Files and Pul sifer of the Council, and Messrs. Abbott, Pul lou, Dresser and Patten of tbe Board of Trus tees. Mr. Bounds and Miss Hayden of the Western Normal School were also in attend ance, and several other educational people of distinction. Nearly all tbe visitors reached Castine ou Wednesday morning by steamer Lew iston from Portland, and returneJ by same boat . on Thursday night. The care and cordiality of Capt. Deering and his associates, and the ad mirable equipments aud general good manage ment of the boat make it a desirable and favor ite means of travel. EXAMINATION OP CLASSES. Woduesday forenoon wa3 occupied by an ex amination of classes, which was on the whole eminently satisfactory. In view of the low grade of attainments reqnired for admission and tbe shortness of ths course—two years— the proficiency of many of tbe pnpils was re markable and indicated commendable efficien cy on the part of the instructors; The after noon opened with a general exercise in didac tics by a class of yonog ladies and gentlemen, who were required to discourse upon a wide range of educational topics assigned them at the time by lot. Some of them showed great originality and independence of thought, an.c tlie youDg ladies particularly evinced much readiness and self-possession in answering ques tions propounded by the visitors on the subjects of the best means of raising! shcool money, school supervision, the building and equipment of school houses, the district system and cog nate topics. The discussion of the mill tax question was quite lively, several of the trus tees and other officials taking a part. After ward there were several recitations of original and selected pieces, and Miss Laura L. Jennys, of the graduating class, gave an admirable model lesson in Botany, makipg a very favora ble impression. DEDICATORY EXERCISES. Id the evening the formal dedication of the new klooI edifice was made. This building stands on the hill hack of the village, just be low the old British Fort of Revolutionary time9 which crowns the summit The location is mar vellously beautiful, overlooking the bay with its numerous islands, aud having tbe hills of Mt. Desert and the mainland northward for background of the view. The building is a handsome, tasteful structure of brick 48 by (38 ou the ground, with a front projection of 14 by 40 feet. In the high andwell lighted basement are located the steam heating apparatus, space for a chemical laboratory, etc. Four recitation rooms each 21 by 28 feet and 12 feet high, are located on tbe first floor on either side of the hall, which is 64 by 8$ feet. The two entrauce3, one in.the front and one in the rear of the building open into tbe ball, and from H one may enter the recitation rooms spoken of, or ascending tbe stairs the main school room, the dimensions of which are 66 by 43 feet and 1G£ feet high, and from this the teachers’ room, library, ap paratus room and cabinet. The third floor is at present occupied as a gymnasium. A beau tiful toned bell weighing five hundred ponnds, a present from Dea. Samuel Adams of Castine, hangs in the cupola, and a Howard clock, pre sented by J. H. Jarvis of Boston, is attached to the wall just over the teachers’ platform. These, with some valuable specimens as a nucle us for a cabinet, presented by Mr. W. H. Fennel* of Portland, comprise tbe presents thus far re ceived. The appropriation of $3000 made last winter will provide the necessary furniture, and a part of the apparatus needed ih the illus tration of principles iu Physics, Chemistry, As tronomy, etc. Some of the minor details of the building are perhaps fair subject of criticism, which, howev er, 8honid be tempered by tbe Consideration that the managers were required to make bricks with a rather insufficient supply of straw—only $20,000 having been appropriated for a building which legitimately should have cost $20,000. Hon. E. G. Harlow, of the Council, under whose special supervision the work has been done, Is fairly entitled to congratulation and uraise for the generally satisfactory result. The dedication ceremonies were opened by Mr. Har low, who gave some account of tbe erection of the building and the general advances in educa tion which it indicated, and closed with the fol lowing original lines, called forth by a consider ation of the beauties of the site, which indicate that, while thoroughly practical and business like, he is not entirely unmindful of the charms of fancy: where the wind of the cast breaks its softest sigh, where the billowy ocean is roiling by. Where the snn’s warm smiles early dispel Sight’s tear* from this temple it loves so Well, Gov. Perham, as temporary chairman of the Board of Trustee?, received the keys lrom Mr. Harlow with some brief but happy and inspir ing remarks, and formally conferred the au thority over the building upon Mr. G. T. Fletch er who had jnst been elected Principal for the seventh time. Mr. Fletcher responded feel ingly, alluding to the vigor with which the school enters upon the seventh year of its exis tence, the encouragement that the instructors have to labor, the importance of education in maintaining a strong and powerful government, and the advance made in preparing students for a useful public or private life. At the close of Mr. Fletcher’s remarks, Hon. Warren Johnson delivered a polished and high ly interstiug dedicatory address. He began by saying that this was the first instance in the history of Maine in which a school building was to be dedicated, built wholly by the State. Thus far, he said, we have been dealing with effects, not causes. Jails, Prisons and Houses of Correction have been built at the expense of thousands of dollars and years of toil, while the cause of this outlay, and of the filling of these institutions has not been struck at with the same labor and expense. Mr. Johnson then took up the subject of Normal Schools, show ing their efficiency and benefit to a nation by ciliDg the effects resulting to France from their degeneracy .and to Prussia by their maintenance. Che first Normal School in this country, said the speaker, was established in Massachusetts in 1839, and had an attendance of three pupils. Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York fol lowed, and so on until at the present time one hundred and fourteen of these schools are in progress in twenty-three States. In addition there are forty-one Normal departments con nected with colleges and academies, but these mixed Normal and Academic schools have proved a failure. The address closed with a brief review of the work in Maine, where there are but two Normal Schools, one of which, fbe Eastetn, began its efficient work in 1867, with thirteen students. At the close of Mr, Johnson’s address, mem bers of the graduating class sung a fine dedi catory ode written for the occasion by Mrs. M. A. Lawrence. Governor Perham, Hon. Sumner A. Patten Stanley T. Pulleu, Esq., Hon. E. W. Files, Mr! J. W. Dresser, Deacon Samuel Adams, Mr. C. C. Rounds aDd others, made brief remarks, congratniating the teachers and scholars on the fine building devoted to their use, the people of Castine that the school was located in their town, and wishing all prosperity to the institu tion and those connected with it. The exer cises closed at eleven o’clock with prayer by Rev. Mr. Moreland, singing of the Doxology by the assembly, and a Beuediction by Bev. Mr. Pfllsbnry. The exercises throughout the evening held the complete attention of the audience, and, interspersed as they were by the music of the Castine Band and excellent singing, wore very appropriate and highly interesting. graduation exercises. The exercises of graduation began at 9 o clock ou Thursday moruiug, with the follow ing programme: PRAYER. Music. What For? 1 Mattie C. Black.Sandy Point. ' English Literature. Nettie S. Walker.N. Brooksville. Music. Art and Nature. Abbie S. Emery.South Thomaston Tbo Study of Physiology. Ida M. Sawyer.Trincc of Wales, N. B. Music. Nations of the Past. Laura L.

Eloise S. Butler. Appleton. Valedictory. r # ^ Elvira T. Lenfest . Union Awarding of Diplomas. Prayer. Doxology. Benediction. The essays exhibited considerable breadth and maturity of thought, and in matter and de livery were very creditable to the members of the class. The girls were prettily dressed and made an attractive appearance. Mr. Fletcher made a capital parting address to the class, and Gov. Perham, as chairman of the Trustees, conferred the diplomas with cordial and appro priate remarks. The affair passed very happily despite the somewhat"gloomy and disagreeable weather. ' • The visitors from abroad were most hospita bly entertained by the citizens of Castine, and were profuse in praises of the perfection of the arrangements for their oomfort and pleas ure. It was a most agreeable season and left the happiest impression on all hands. 1 THEBTEE MEETING, , Tho Board of Trustees held their first meet ing on Wednesday and effected a temporary organization by choice of Gev. Perham for Chairman and Stanley T. Pnllen for Secretary. A committee of three, consisting of Messrs. Johnson, Pullen and Abbott, were appointed to report a plan for permanent organization and a series of by-laws at the next meeting, which will bo held at Farmington on the occasion of the graduating exercises of the Western Nor mal School in Jane. The Hall Expedition.—The public still continues to be interested relative to the stories of the rescued party of the Polaris. A New York despatch says that Judge Charles P. Daly, President of the Geographical Society, speak ing of the death of Capt Hall, of the Polaris Arctic Expedition, says that the letter-writer who started the poisoning story npon the ex pression of a suspicion of an Esquimaux, would not have done so had he known the breed. They do not know what truth means. Joe is spoken of as a well meaning man, but Hans is a man of very bad reputation, and was near being banged by Mr. Hayes on one of his expeditions, so convincing was the proof that ho had been the cause of the death of Mr. Son tag. Judge Daly is not inclined to accept as truth, the stories told of Capt. Baddington, by those rescued, and alluded to the circumstance that Tyson and Myers were the men reported as showing insubordination at Disco. Capt. Hall, he says however, was not capable of lead ing such an expeditioa, and did not care so much that the north pole should be reached, as that he should reach it. He was no seaman, and an attempt to induce him to leave the com mand to Lieut. Grlnnell,a son of his benefactor, failed. This Mr. Grinnell, when spoken to on the subject, said that Capt. Hall lacked only one requisite for the task he undertook, ability to govern the men. He was too familiar with his crew, John Hegeman, who furnished the expedi tion with a portion of her outfit, is made to say by an interviewer, that Hall expressed himself confident that Buddington, Chester and Morton would sustain him In any discipline he should attempt to enforce, and that he (Hegeman), in his daily visits to the Polaris, when at New York, was not favorably impressed by Tyson. He regarded him as a very dissatisfied man, and one whom it would be difficult to manage. In bis opinion the whole party rescued were de aefews.'* lof r.i* r/o.r » Not after Election.-The Ellsworth American repeats a good story which was told at the Kent dinner in Bangor the other night: When Kent was first chosen Governor, and after weeks of doubt, was finally counted in, and was proceeding to Augusta to assume the office, he stopped at Unity with his escort for dinner. After dinner, when the party were all in their sleighs ready to start, Kent be thought him of his smoke and asked the host ler to go in and get him a cigar light. The hostler did so, and came out puffing tte cigar, which he took from bis mouth and offered ihe Governor elect. “No my friend," said Kent mildly, “I could do it .before election but X. can’t rtow." The West Point Examination.—We are requested to give notice so that all may under stand, that the candidates for nomination as Cadets to West Point will meet the examining committee and he examined on Tuesday next, in Saco at one o’clock P.
