Notice is hereby given that the reading by the Dramatic Reading Club for the 31st inst., is postponed to the 7thprox. The crowd that attended the great moral show was mostly a moral crowd, there being very little disturbance or drunkenness. Numerous showers yesterday afternoon tried to cool the ay:, but didn’t succeed very well. No small children have been missed since the cannibals departed. The banks in this city will close at twelvc o’clock on Memorial Day. The School Committee have advertised fora successor to Mr. A. P. Stone as Principal of the High School, and they want him within seven weeks. As Judge Fox was riding on horseback down Congress street yesterday morning, his horse stumbled and threw the Judge ovei his head. The Judge turned a complete summersault, striking upon his back. Fortunately he was not seriously injured. Gen. Henry Prince, U. S. A., has presented to the Maine General Hospital Fair, Rogers , new and beautiful group “The Favored Schol ar.” Mr. Joseph Brazier of the firm of Mess. J. E.

During the procession yesteiday the house of Mr. Fields on Waterville street, was ran sacked by thieves and $60 in money stolen. The fellow who took a valuable overcoat from the Boston and Maine train Tuesday af noon, can get $25 for it in this city. See adver tisement. A runaway oti Exchange street about six o’clock last evening, caused considerable ex citement. No damage resulted. But one picked pocket was reported yester day, that of an elderly lady who had it sewed in some obscure place about which she was constantly feeling. Barnum’s moral show was a moial show in deed, and furnished very few items of an im moral character. There were 141 narnss entered on the Uftited States Hotel register yesterday. The Allan mail steamer Circassian, from Quebec, arrived at Liverpool on the 26th inst. The Custom House will be closed at noon on Memorial. Day. Reethoveo’s “Ruins of Athens” was a fair specimen of tho music played by the Barnum bands. A man named Winfield was arrested by of ficer Jones last nigbt, for drunkenness and for abusing bis family. There were but two faints at the show yes terday. An intoxicated woman fell and struck her head on a curb-stone on Cumberland street, | yesterday, cutting quite a gash. She was taken to the police station and the wound dressed. The man who was ready to swear that the mercury stood at 93 degrees yesterday, isn’t a a person of veracity.—88 was abuot the figure. It was Fred Turner who was arrested Tues day night for stealing from Curtis, Fobes & Co., instead of John B. Curtis. The West Point Examination.—We arc informed that Messrs. Slrout, Jewett and Ham ilton, the gentlemen appointed by Congressman Burleigh to examine candidates for the West Point cadetship agreed to report the names of F. E. Hobbs, who claims to be a resident of North Berwick, as passing the best examina tion. and William H. Looney of Portland, the second. The committee reported two names because there are very grave doubts as to the eligibility of young Hobbs, his parents residing in Washington, D. C., for more than two years and the young man coming from that city to contend for the appointment, and intending to go back immediately. It would certainly seem that this simple fact should bar him under the statute from receiving the appointment, as it provides that the appointee shall be an actual re ddent of the district. \ ouug Looney is about eighteen years of age, and is a m-naber of the present graduating elass of the Portland High School. He is a first class boy in every respect, as we have occasion to know. fill Affair*. A special meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen was holden at noon yesterday. The Mayor appointed as a committee on the celebration of 4th of July on the part of the upper Board Aldermen Clements, Gould and Smite. The Mayor appointed Luther Sterling police man in place of George H Cammett, deceased, and Jomes W. Stanford and Edwin M. Sinionds special policemen without pay. at the Boston & Maine Railroad station. Adjourned. Cerebuo Spinal Meningitis.— The wife of Rev, Mr. Jordan, is very sick at the residence of her father, Judge Kingsbury, with that ter rible disease, cerebro spinal meningitis. Dr. Burr, who attends her pronounces it a case of the worst type, but thinks she will now recov er. The servants have all deserted the house through fear of the disease. Accident.—A youug man from Saccarappa, who was in town to see Barnum's show yester day, made a false step just as he was mount ing the top row of reserved seat*, and was pre cipitated to the ground. He received some had sprains, and his scalp was cut some, but no serious iujury resulted. Maine State Magazine.—Wo have receiv ed the Maine State Magazine, a monthly pub lication excellently printed, well illustrated, and filled with carefully selected reading mat ter. It bears a Portland imprint and is pub lished by True, Hallet & Co. Programme for memorial Day. The Committee of Arrangements of Bos worth Post No. 2, G. A. R.. have announced the following programme for Memorial Day, May HOth, 1873: Comrades will report at the headquarters at 81 o’clock a. m., receive decorations, and under command of officers designated for that pur pose will proceed to decorate the graves in the Eastern, Western, Calvary and Forest City cemeteries, also Lincoln Tree, with appropriate ceremonies.

At 1 p. m„ all the comrades of the l ost win assemble as above, receive the decorations together with the Portland Army ®uli ’t.", Union, join in the escort, consisting a_ several military companies of *lttock* i„ der command of Col. cnas nviock will front of their headquartors, tlh g move up Congress stme^to ^ up . ty to Spring, tbrmigb £ Temple, up Tern Fw’ ‘JCfiST down Congress to City Hall, where toey will’ receive the Governor, Mavor, City Government, orator, honorary members and other invited guests, thenc' down Con gress to Smith, through Smith toCumberland, down Cnmberland to Pearl, down Pearl to the Portland and -Rochester depot, and take the ears to Deering On arriving at the Memorial lot at the ceme tery, the column will halt, and officers in charge of decorating sections will proceed to post their men one at each grave to be decorat ed . As soon as the men are posted officers in charge will report to their Commauder, when, at a signal from the bugle, each comrade will uncover, place his decoraPon upon the grave, come to the position of soldier at parade rest, and remain so while the hand plays a dirge. A recall will then be sounded, each comrade will report to the officer in charge of his section at the place where they started, and march upon Memorial Lot. At the same time the escort and all others not assigned will be formed around'Memorial Lot. When all are formed on and arouud Memo rial Lot, the Lot will be decorated by the en tire Host, each comrade having reserved a por tion of his decorations for that purpose, escort saluting at signal.' Three volleys will be then lired by a detachment detailed for that purpose. After the volley a prayer will be offered by the chaplain, followed by a dirge by the hand and benediction. The column will then re-form and proceed to the ears. On arriving at the city the column will move up unestnut street to City Hall, leaving the City Government and invited guests. The column will then counter march iu front of City Hall and proceed direct ly to the G. A. R. headquarters, when they will be dismissed. Comrades and escort will again assemble (es cortwith side arms and colors) at 7 o’clock at their respective 1 eadquarters. The line will be formed in front of G. A. R. hall at 7 1-2 o’clock and proceed to City Hall, the central por.ion of which will be reserved for the pro cession. The order of exercises in the' evening will be as follows: Instrumental music by the band, singing by a select quartette, prayer, oration and benediction, The hall will be open at 7 o'clock, and the committee cordially invite the citizens to join with the comrades in these cer emonies in honor to the fallen brave, “Our Nation’s Dead.” The Committee of Arrangements consist of the following comrades: Geo. H. Abbott, Chairman; John Yeaton, Jr., Secretary; Z. A. Smith, C. C. Douglass, W. B. Smith, E. A. Hanson, W. H. Green, T. H. Bibher, H. P. Ingalls, T. A. Roberts, Geo. H. Libby, J. F. Laud. The Big Show. Barnum came, saw, and conquered. He came at 4 o’clock yesterday morniug, he saw the streets filled with immense crowds of peo ple as early as 9 o’clock, and his conquest was a conlinous one. The people began to arrive Tuesday night,the first lot being a boat load from Bangor, the far thest distance any ever went to see the big show. The special train over the Ogdensburg brought in 1500 people, while the Grand Trunk and the Rochester brought upwards of three thousand. The number of teams from the eountry was enormous, and it was a capital day for the girls to count white horses. About 9000 people were preseut at the morning exhi bition. In the afternoon the attendance was much larger, and in the evening the great pa villions were densely packed. There were probably 14,000 people present. As for the show the only fault to be found with it ;s that it is too large. There is too much of it, and the eyes grow weary before half the sights are seen. It fully sustains all the praise that has been lavished upon it, and is undoubtedly the greatest exhibition that is shown under canvass. In fact, it is a combination of exhibi tions. The menagerie is very large and com plete, embracing many animals never exhibit ed before. The gymnasium and the hippo drome form a great exhibition in themselves, and the mechanical curiosities and freaks of nature, many thousands in number, are all par ticularly fine. Many features which the visitor hastily passes by would te well worth an hour’s study had one the time. There was excellence in every department. The hippodrome boasted the famous names Lucille, Watson, Sebastian, and others,while the female Sampson,the Math ewq the Costellos&c. adorned the gymnasium. It would take a column to adequately describe the exhibition; the posters and the advertise ments must be consulted. The courtesies extended by Mr. D. S. Thomas, Press agent, added much to the enjoyment of those journalists who were present. The Two Cemeteries. Mr. Editor: I spent a half day on yesterday, in a visit to the beautiful grounds of the Evergreen Ceme tery, and took a stroll through the grounds of the new cemetary, which are now under con struction. They promise to be no less beautiful than the other. But their boundary lines run awkwardly, like a blunted wedge far into the finest portion of the Evergreen grounds, ad joining the latter on three side lines of consid erable length, and much to the detriment and inconvenience of the separated lots of the Ever green. It suggested at once the inquiry, can not the city authorities institute some negotia tions upon reasonable terms, by which these deformed boundaries and ungainly fences now dividing the two grounds, may be blotted out and the whole brought under one control? The improvement to each would be very great. Tbo Trustees of the new corporation, as published* are judicious men, and in harmony with the best interests of the c'ty; and I should think would favor the union, if they can do so consistently with their trust. The purchase could not prac tically add anything to the city debt, for the property would pay off the bonds that may be given for the grounds faster than such bonds may mature. The frontage of the new ceme tery is many times more spacius than is that to the Evergreen, and capable in the future of an imposing eutrance-way. Probably no time may ever occur again wheq the suggestion of a union will be so practicable as the present, when the work of construction of the new frounds lias advanced but a little way. 'rompt action in such cases is always good economy. Evergreen. May 26th, 1873. Stealing and Selling.—Yesterday after noon Deputy Bridges and Officer Place arrest ed two men on the Western Promenade who were driving a thriving trade at selling whips. It appears that Tuesday afternoon these men entered the store of J. Larrabec, in Portsmouth and stole therefrom about thirty dollars worth of whips. That night they got on to the Bar num train and came to this city. One of them named Warren White, who bails from Stough ton, Mas3., confesses the theft, and says that the other an attache of one of the side shows, helped him secrete the articles. Private Select Reading.—Last evening we had the pleasure of attending a private reading at the library room of the A. & W. V., given by Mrs. Roberts assisted by Miss Ella Bonney. The selections were varied and in fine taste. They were of such a character -s to bring out the nicety of tha reader’s expression. Mrs. Roberts did well in all the different pieces, but if we were to speak of any in particular it would be her first selection, "The dying Sol dier.” Mrs. Roberts proposes to form a class in elocution at an early day. Boston & Maine —The Boston and Maine Railroad now have on sale at Portland, excur sion tickets for Wolfboro and return at $l.fi.3, also to Centre liar .or and return at $.3. These tickets are good at any time during the season. Passengers by this route go by rail to Alton Bay aud there take the new and elegant steam er Mt. Washington to the above place. The sail upon the lake is one of the most delightful in New England. A dinner is served on board the steamer, with a bill of fare equalled by but few hotels iu the country India Street Bell.—The India street bell, weighing 3000 pounds, was raised to the high position in the city which it is destined to occu py Tuesday evening, amid the congratulatory shouts of an army of small boys. It gives forth a rich, deep mellow tone which it is a pleasure to hear. It has as sweet a tongue in it, though not yet as smooth, as any bell in the city. Great credit is due the Troy foundry for turuiug out so excellent a piece of workmanship. Calvary Cemetery.—A detachmen3 of tlio Grand Army of tha Republe, accompanied by a detail from the Army & Navy Utiion aud Fort Preble, under escort of the Montgomery Guards and Sheridan Cadets with the Portland Band, will on Decoration Day visit the Catho lic Cemetery at JLiggnia. A special train will leave the station of the Boston & Maiuo Rail road at 5>i a. m., returning at II a. m. That Coal.—An Argus correspondent is troubled because the city authorities did not ad vertise for proposals for the purchase o eon for the public buildings. To avoid any ur e* uneasiness it may be stated that after a ful consideration of the matter it was deemed best to purchase a cargo at schedule pr.ces in Philadelphia and ship it, thus saving commis sions, or the profit that dealers would expect, feeling assured that it would be no cheaper the present season than when bought. tllSCELLANEOim NOTICES. The Fays.—Little Annie and Prof. Fay are astonishing and confounding all who visit their exhibitions at Army & Navy Hail ante-room. They exhibit to-night and every evening this week.

Tho receipts of the year were $11,702 74;' dis bursements. $7,682.40; vssets $14,069 69^ liabil ities, $7,793.77. Boston Bight Hour League. The Boston Eight Hour League, at its meet ing to-day, discussed the following matters:— The labor movement deals with the poverty of laborers as a class; the great question is how can wages be so increased as to add to their purchasing power. High wages will be the inevitable result of better opportunities and institutions for the masses. Labor saving ma chinery is largely the product of high wages, Expensive machinery will not pay its cost of construction and management where ljw wages prevail. Rapid and cheap production is the result of labor sawing machinery. The resalts of a days labor in America buys more than the result of the same amount of labor in any oth er country. High wages, resulting from less hours, reduces the cost of production. The tirst step toward co-operation is to rendercheap labor dearer; the conditions which will make co-operation universal will lift the standard of general intelligence to comforts so far above their present level that fraud, oppression, in temperance, prosecution and war will be im possible. The great important fact in social science is that eight houre mean higher wager or less poverty. The resolutions anticipated that the voting power of the masses will be openly or covertly assailed in the next constitutional convention with propositions to qualify suffrage, increase taxes, reduce the number of officers elected bv the people, and that an aristocray of wealthy Republicans and Democrats will nuite iu these high handed usurpations. The only hope for pure elections, incorruptible legislation, less violence, crime and misery is a reduction of the hours of labor wherever public opinion aud leg islation can properly interfere. The resolutions were earnestly discussed by George McNeil, Ira Stewart, J. H. Jones, Hinchcliffe, Hiuckley and Pettigrew, aud after a few minor amendments they were adopted. Edward Atkinson, a cotton mill agent, who was present as a listener, was called to the plat form and opposed statutary regulations of labor except so far as they controlled the work of children and those under state guardianship. He promptly solved some conundrums that were offered for the members of the league, and there were mutual acknowledgments of in struction received. NEW YORK. Tlie Bond* Dropped by Jim Brady. New York, May 28.—The United States bonds which Jim Brady, the burglar and bond thief attempted to dispose of yesterday, were undoubtedly stolen, and probably belonged to the persons iu w.hose names they are registered, as follows: Amasa Stone, Jr.," of Cleveland; Daniel Gale aud Benjamin Newkirk of Port Jervis; William C. Drake, Garrett Fay, O. Young and C. Harrison Hobart The police are of the opinion that most of the bonds were s'olen from the body of Capt. Colvocoresses, who was found dead in the field near Bridge port, Ct., a year ago, having died from a pistol shot wound in the head. The manner of the death of Capt. Colvocoresses was iu doubt, not being clear ..hetlier he was murdered or com mitted suicide. A few days before his death the frieuds of the Captain knew lie had in bis possession bonds for the sum of $60,000. These were not found on his body, aud have not since been discovered. The Turf. The trot for a purse of $2000 to-day, at Fleetwood Park, between Huntress \V. Hallan and J. W. Conley, attracted a large assemblage. The trot was mile heats best 3 in 5 to harness, $1200 to the tirst, $500 to 'he second, $300 to the third, and was won by Crawford’s John W. Conley in three straight beats. Time 2.26, 2.24, 2.24J. Mr. Goidsniitli’s Huntress was Second in the tirst two heats and distanced in the last. Suicide. Buckley F. Benton, the owner of Park Theatre, Brooklyn, and of the swimming baths, committed suicide this evening by shoot ing bimseif through the head. He had been unwell for two weeks. The Carpenters’ Mlrike. Several carpenter* who quit work in the ten hour shops Monday found at one of the socie ties headquarters that the reported action of the society was not fully eudorsed by that organization. They have endeavored to obtain ^1^ ,n fbe eight hour shops but found them all lull, aud they will probably have to returu to their old shops at ten hours labor. It is stated that a m n representing liimseif as a society carpenter, has visited several shops to-day threatening those who are working ten hours,' It is not believed now any general strike will occur unless the bosses of eignt hour shops decide to change to ten hours. The recent proposition of builders and carpente society to make eight hours the com prom i at the present rate of wages to last for li year, was rejected. !=*ftlc of Cool. To-day 80,000 tons of Scranton coal was sold at the following prices: Lump $4.30 to $4,324 Steambeat $4.40 to $4.45; Grate $4.60 to $4,624 Egg $4.82} to $4.85, Stove $5.15 to $5.22},Chest nut $4.40 to $4 45. The attendance was large and the bidding brisk. The sales indicate a slight advance in price over last month. The Brooklyn School Scandal. The commencement of the investigation into the Brooklyn school scandal commenced yes terday. No counsel was allowed by the com mittee. Mr. Rei l, late principal of School 13, testified that Mr. Kinsella, one of the school committee, walked through the class rooms with his hat on, and smoking; that lie used profane lan guage in the school; that he made demoralizing remarks about the Bible, and had appointed incompetent teachers. Mr. Kinsella testified that Rail was removed for not obeying the rules of the committee in allowing children not living liv that district to attend his school. Reid refuted this charge ami was corroborated by four teachers. The examination was adjourned till Monday. Various Matters.
