Exit Maine Central. Despite the assurances we had ten days siuee from parties who ought to he versed in Maine Central affairs that that railroad had not been leased and further that the transaction was not contemplated, we now have the best authority for saymg that, if not already in the hands of the Eastern Railroad Company, arrangements have been made and the details settled for the transfer at an early day. We are, however, informed by gentlemen who arc in a position to kno w the movements of the Maine Central directors that the base has been consummated and that the necessary papers wero passed yester day. If this is true the Maine Central as a living and responsible coiporation has ceased to ex ist, and the leading road in Maine is in the direct management of gentlemen living out of the State. We must confess that the tact that the leading railroad, running through the heart of the State, and the branches that connect with it, is under the control ot other than our own people, is not one calculated to inspire confidence at the in ception, It is to be expected, however, that the new managers of the railroad system of the State will consult their own real interest by adopting such a liberal and wise policy as will develop the industries of Maine rather than that short sighted and niggardly course which will not only despoil the State of her energy but eventually ruin the prospects of the railroads. Already the lumbermen of the Kennebec complain that the demands of the railroads have compelled the manufacturer of lumber that are able, to build mills along the tide water, so that they can there manu facture their lumber and ship it by water. Of course the natural result of this change in the lumber business, is to compel operators with moderate means to abandon the busi ness and ultimately abandon the State with their capital and business energy. It is impossible to ascertain what has led to the leasing of the Maine Central to the Eastern. We are told, however, that parties interested in the Eastern have purchased a controlling interest of the stock and that the consolidation or leasing would be accomplish ed next January at the time of the annual meeting. Maine Central stock has been grad ually drifting in the hands of Boston parties and it may be possible that by the unloading of R. B. Dunn, Esq. of Waterville and other parties not entirely in accord with Judge Rice, the control of the road has gone out of the hands of the present managers. ouisum'ii “grent moral show’’ was at tended yesterday by a noticeably large num ber of people who look upon the theatre and ordinary circus with abhorence. As to the circus they are no doubt right. But in this connection, we trust that due caution was ob served to eschew the clown and the depraved mules that kick, and to patronize only those parts that were real curiosities and calculated to increase their knowledge of zoology. Al low us to suggest that hereafter they cannot gravely censu e tliote who attend the theatre when the productions of Shakespeare are put upon the boards. It is said that t!u> temperance element in new Tork Assembly under the adyice of temperance leaders secured the defeat of the local option prohibitory bill framed in accord ance with the suggestions in Gov. Dix’s veto of the previous bill, making it optional with the voters whether or not cider and beer shall be included in the list of the beverages pro hibited to he sold. They evidently go on the principle that ahalf a loaf is not so good as no bread at all. The specificalions in the case of the United States against the Union Pacific Rail, road managers, an abstract of which may be found on the first page, is a document of te dious length but probably includes all the charges that can be brought against that cor poration. The effect of the suit upon the bonds and stock of that road has been quite disasterous, causing them to fall to a lower figure than at any time since the iailure of Ames Brothers, nearly four years since. There is no decided charge in the Guber natorial field. The same connecting reports multiply, one parly claiming that flic whole State is Stone bound, and another as vehe mently declaring that as to the Gubernatorial contest, the commonwealth is practically free of that article. There is, however, a larger reserved party quietly watching affairs who will, in good time, we think, deem it best to support Judge Kent. Anniversary week used to be one of the prominent institutions of Boston and every reformer and the clergymen of the leading denominations used to go up to the city to these annual meetings in great numbers. For several years the attendance and interest lias fallen of very hugely.

The Oxford County Republican Conven tion is called July 2d, and ail Republicans and those opposed to the “salary grab,’ are invit ed to send delegates. The Kennebec County Convention is called August 26th. Tun Legislature of New York has passed a bill making May 30th, known as Decoration day, a holiday. IT will probable make the large dailies of Boston feel indignant to know that the Ger mantown Telegraph is satisfied that the Ken nebec Journal is among the papers that are surest indices of New England sentiment and that no Boston paper sustains the relation of a public indicator. The Augusta Dingiey-Stone war is at an end and a compromise has been made to di vide the delegation equally between those two gentlemen. Therefore for all piactical pur poses the delegation had as well stay at home and save their time and currency. Interview between Speaker Blaine and Brigham Young. A Salt Lake City despatch gives the follow ing account of an interview between Speaker Blaine and Brigham Young. Brigham wanted to impress the Speaker with the idea that Con gress had no right whatever to interfere with the local affairs of the government of the ter ritory, that any attempt at interference was a breach of faith, and be said they should be left just as the organic laws left them, and should have full power to do all legislation without let or hindrance. The Speaker reminded Brigbatu that the pres idential contest of 18G1 was fought on this dis ' tinct issue of the right of Congress to control I the domestic institutions of the territories, and [ that ,Mr. Lincoln was' chosen on that ground; | that Congress had exercised its power by abol ! ishiDg the relation of master and slave, and ; that its authority was plenary in the premises aud the extent of its exercise a matter of dis cretion; that the organic act of Utah was by its terms subject to amendment, alteration and | repeal; and that no enactment of the territo I rial Legislature was of the slightest validity if Congress chose to annul it. Brigham said, “If that is your doctrine our interests and rights demand that we bo admit ted as a State. We have the requisite popula tion, resources and wealth.’’ “It may be true, Mr. Young,” the Speaker re plied, “that you have the necessary population and wealth, but sneaking to you with the frank ness with which I should speak were I on tlio floor of Congress, I must say that Utah can never he admitted a State so long as the insti tution of polygamy is upheld and practiced by the Mormon church and, as I understand, by the er-at mass of your people.” This remark seemed to nettle Brigham con siderably, hut lie kept his temper and proceed ed to a long dissertation relative to the purity of the morals of eastern cities in comparison with the morals of Utah, contending tiiat the superiority was oil the side of the latter, i “But, Sir. Young,” rejoined/ the Speaker, “what you denounce in ihe east is done against the law clandestinely, and is admitted lobe wrong even by those who indulge in it. What you do in Utah is not only done by sanction of | the law but it has the approval and command of the church, With such practices and opin ions, radically differing from those of the peo ple of the United States, you cannot in my judgment ever he admitted to participation in the government of the Uuion.” “Well, then,” said Brigham, “what are you going to do about it? You seem always to be worrying about Utah in Congress and attempt ing to legislate for us.” “Wby,” replied the Speaker, “what specific measures Congress will adopt is not for me to say, but I will answer you that Congress will adopt such measures as in its opinion may be necessary to maintain the fcdqral authority in tliis territory, butas to Congress worrying about Utah, it is my impression that the worrying is on the other side. T do not think it to be right nor wise to prosecute your people for what they may conscientiously believe, however much I may differ from them, but at the same time I would not leave on your mind the impression that Congress may not at an early time legis late in your affairs in just such manner as they j may deem best for the general good.” Southern Opinion. [From the Richmond Whig, May 24.1 In a word, negro ascendency or radical rule, wlikh in Virginia are but convertible terms, means death.—aye, worse than death—dis honor, negro equality, not only before the law, but in the workshops, at the hotels, theatres, churches and in all the departments of the gov ernment. Equality, not by the elevation of the nogro, but by the degradation of the white man. Virginians, can you stand this? The black flag of the negro is already fluttering in the breeze; they have already thrown down the gauntlet, and dare you to the contest. Up. then, with the banner of the white mad; let it fly from the masthead of every conservative journal in the State; and since the issue has been forced upon us, let every true man rally to his colors. [From the Richmond Enquirer, May 24.] White voters of Virginia, the issue will he before you at the fall elections: black or white; which race is to govern our commonwealth? For the sake of both the races let us have the same popular verdict we had four years ago. [From the Richmond Despatch, May 24.] Exactly! What is the matter, people of the Union? Why is it that a part of this Union, unexampled in the past for its peace and order, for that sunshiny public content, confidence and repose that prevailed everywhere, should be now disturbed by disorder, outrage, conflict of authority, shameless public depravity and lawlessness? Why is it? Consider the question—turn it over in the mind—view it in every way, and what is the answer? The Negro. That is the only answer that can be given. It is the introduction of the negro element into the governing power of the country. This has substituted disorder and all manner of public evil for peace, order and public blessings, tlio like of which was never seen in this world since the days of Paradise. The New York Carpenters’ Strike—The announcement that the strike of the journey men carpenters in New York had virtually enlcd, and that most of the employers had ac ceded to the eight hour demand of the men, ap pears to have been premature. There is con siderable excitement in the building trade on j the subject, hut the matter iustead of being at an end may be said to have hardly begun as yet. Th° Evening Post reports that on Tues day all the large planing mills were in opera tion as usual, and hut few of the workmeu had demanded a return to the eight hour system. The owners are unanimous in their determina tion to resist any attempt of the kind. What lias been accomplished thus far is just this. The society men have been around to the shops where men have been working under the ten hour system and cautioned them not to con tinue so doing. Al>out two hundred men have been in this way frightened iuto quitting their work. These men have endeavored to gain employment at the eight hour shops, hut ou ac count of the dulness of the season their services were not required, and they are naturally at a loss to understand how the movement is going to benefit them. There is a large reserve force of non-society German carpenter.? in the city, which it is thought will lie sufficient to fill the places of the men who have quit work. The Commercial Advertiser reports that there is not the faintest approach to a general strike on the part of the carpenters. According to the Post, the policy of the society men is to continue the course thus far adopted, and seek to force the ten hour men out by fair means or foul. The police authorities are determined to preserve the peace; and the society men had best go very slowly in the matter of intimidation. The Whipping-Post in Delaware.—Two lads, Masters Jolin Mullen, aged 18, and David Clark, aged 17, sentenced for robbing a market i man of his money box as he drove through the street, were whipped in New Castle, Del., Saturday. The market man, a Mr. Tilly, en gaged one, Andy Ryan, a man of mature age, and this Ey an incited the boys to rob his em ployer, and even assisted them. At the tria] Ryan turned States evidence and escaped, while the boys were sentenced to six months imprisonment, ten lashes apiece, and compelled to make a restitution of $18.50 each, they hav ing stolen $37. Promptly at 2 o’clock the court-yard gate was thrown open and the crowd admitted, while at the same time the sheriff hurried into the warden’s room and, grasping the “cat-o’-nine-tails,” walked into the yard and took his seat beside the whipping post. Less tliau two minutes afterward, John Mullen, bared to the waist, and with a coat thrown over his|sIioulders,wali£ed into the yard accompanied by the warden, and for a mo ment stood -with downcast eyes, hesitating what to do. A nod from the sheriff decided him, and throwing off his coat he walked boldly to the post. It was a horrid sight; the crowded court-yard, still as death itself, the bare skin of the boy glistening in the sun, as lie placed his bands in the iron bands while the warden pinned them in, and the sheriff, whin in band, stood near, ready to inflict the cruel blows. But at the first blow the folly and, indeed, the cru elty of the custom became painfully apparent, for the sheriff merely lifted the whip and the thongs fell on the lmys back as lightly as if in play, scarcely reddening the flesh. As each blow fell the warden called out “one,” “two,’ and so on until, having counted ten, the boy’s wrists were released, and picking up his coat, he ran back to the prison, and the other enter ed the yard and was as mildly dealt with.

There is talk of a now Republican paper iu New York city, uud it is said that propositions have been made to Mr. Erastus Brooks, with a view to purchasing the Express for its Associat ed Press franchise, and turning it into a Re | puoucan sneer.

Summer, Although the mother of myriads of beautiful flow ers, is apt to steal the roses from the cheeks of those who are exposed to its fiery breath. At this season if there any germs or disease in the system, the heat is pretty sure to develop them. Tho bilious, the dys peptic, the nervous, the debilitated, suffer more at tins period of the year than at any other. They, there ore, require an invigorating and regulating medicine, and this desideratum nasbeen placed with in the reach of all in the form of Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters. To recount the uses of this invaluable pre cGIiaP rcme(iy, seems like repeating a familiar Tact that has been notorious everywhere for manv, many years. Who does not know that dyspepsia, bilious disorders, constipation, diarrhoeal affections rheumatism, nervous complaints, kidney disturban ces, and constitutional weakness, in both sexes, are relieved and radically cured by this powerful yet harmless vegetable preparation.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate rrom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of nis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck's Seaweed tonic diss v the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto ach, digests easily, nourishes the system, and creat a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, aDd the patient is a billious habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.

The occasion is one of unusual interest, and it is becoming that we, who are reap.ng the fruits of the great contest, should devote the day to the commem oration of the brave men who have given their lives to the preservatiun of the unity ana integrity of our common country. Let us, fellow-citizens, ever cherish with gratitude the memory of those who have saved to us and our children the priceless heritage bequeathed by the heroes of the Revolution.
