THE PRESS. FRIDAY HORSING), MAY SO, 1873 Ev :ry re:ular attache of the Press is furnished willj a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat au 1 bote managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our journal, as wo have information that several “bum mers” are seeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas sively, a party to such fraud We do not read anonymous letters and communi cations. The uame and address of the writer are in all esses in lispensab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W i cannot undertake to return or reserve com munications that are not used. In Memorlam. That we haye a national existence to-day, that our nation stands in the front rank of the nationalities of the world,that we are a pros perous people at peace with the world, that the tendency cf all governments is toward a greater freedom and larger intelligence of the j masses, is due largely to the patriotic men who by their sacrifice and devotion in the gi gantic stiugcle for national life became its saviors at the price of martyrdom. It is fit ting, then, that the city, to-day, with the im pressive solemnity of civic and military pomp, the village with its band of surviving veterans and pr. cession of citizens and school children, and thr rural neighborhood with its modest offering and unspoken tribute except that richer eloquence ef tear-suffused eyes,—all unite to do homage to the nation’s dead. To-day too, we forget worldly rank and po sition to pay our homage to devoted man hood, honoring those most who made the greatest sacrifice. In that unknowu couutry to which the Nation’s dead have passed, the general’s star, the sergeant’s chevron and the private’s corps badge are eclipsed by more enduring halo of martyrdom. To-day we venerate not so much the brilliant deed and effective service as the chivalrous spirit that prompted it. It matters not whether the man we honor fell on the perilous edge of battle, or his life was thrown away by in compent leadership, or he sickened and died in the attempt to serve the nation; for viewed from the stand-point of that cost, sacrifice and heroic devotion that has made our fair temple of Freedom so priceless, no life, how ever humble, has been wasted. To-day thousands will be unable to pay the tribute of respect to the memory of the idol of their cwn respective firesides. Perhaps that hero whose memory we sacredly cherish, may be quietly sleeping on the banks of the Potomac,—quiet to-day because he rests there, or his sacred dust may consecrate to us forever the ridges of Gettysburg or the emer ald slopes of Fredericksburg,or lost in the jun gles of the "Wilderness, or the Southern breezes whisper his requiem among the pines of the lonely plain. Others will garland his resting place, or if unknowu to human being, God, who clothes the fiel i with lilies, will cause his unknown mound to be clad with His verdure. “On fame’s eternal camping ground Their silent tents are spread And glory guards with so'emn round The burial ot the dead.” But however beautiful may be the form of our decoration, however rare and costly the garlands we place upon the mounds of the country’s saviors, all will be idle mockery if we leave their graves with no renewed reso lution to be better citizens, with no earnest desire for the cultivation of those virtues which made them conspicuous. If we go away from the services of memorial day to be sordid and self seeking, if we forget that we owe the country and its institutions greater service because they have been preserved at so great cost, not ouly will our service be in vain but the men we honor, will have died in vain. We should always remember that so far as our influence goes to weaken authority, to violate the laws, to lower the standard of morality in society or integrity in business re lations, or oppose measures for the promo tion of the intelligence and welfate of com munity—so far we eulist under the banner of those hostile to the Nation's saviors. Nor should we forget more immediate du ties. The' fathers, mothers, widows and or phans of those we honor to day, at least many of them—are poor and needy. Be cause of the death of those whose graves we adorn, life is one incessant struggle with pov erty and privation. There is not a village in Maine where this is not the case, and in the larger communities, it is particularly so. Then there are hundreds of men wasted by disease or so crippled by wounds that life is a perpetual burden. In the country’s service they hat e been so injured that they caunot compete with others for those comforts that make life desirable. With them life is scarce Iy endurable; let us rob it of that keener pang that neglect may give. The Ohio Constitutional Convention has been seriousiy considering how far it would be judicious to omit the clause of the State Constitution which exempts church property from taxation. It appears that Ohio has about one-tenth of the whole church proper ty in the United States, and accord ing to a writer in the Cincinnati Commercial, the increase in the value of the same is greatly in excess of the increase in the number of churches and church members. From 1850 to 1800, he says that the number of churches was in creased some forty-two per cent., while from 1800 to 1870 there was only an increase of sixteen per cent. From 1850 to 1860, there was an increase in church-membership of thirty per cent., while during the succeediug decade the increase was barely eleven per cent. Titbue seems to be good ground for the belief that the corn crop of this year will be very much less productive than it has been for several years past, for the reason, as the Chicago Tribune puts it, “that cold, raw, and ~ wet weather has prevailed in all parts of the great corn-growing belt of the country.” As if in anticipation of such a result, farmers who each had twenty acres in 1872, have on ly half that amount this year. In 1872 “the great corn-growir.g belt,” which includes Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Wiscon sin, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnessota, yielded 5SO,548,000 bushels. The yield of Illinois alone was 217,600,000 bushels, whde Iowa, second in productiveness, gave 101,180,000. We have received a despatch from a gen treman who claims to know, stating that the Eastern Railroad has not and does not con template leasing the Maine Central. The Boston Evening Journal has the best of au thority for saying that the report is incorrect. We have only to say that our informant was told by an Eas'ern Railroad official on Wed nesday, aud that another gentleman, entirely reliable and in a position to know, told us that while the lease had not been made, it would be within a few weeks as the prelimin aries had been arranged. That is a sufficient basis for our announcement of yesterday and we believe it is true. # Akd now tin* agent of the associated press takes pain9 to say that there is no compro mise between the friends of Messrs. Dingley and Stone in Augusta. The honest news paper man can’t comprehend Augusta poli tics, but hereafter we shall not believe any re port from that direction. It does, however, indicate that there is a warm contest between the friends of these estimable gentlemen, as there is in every town where they come in contact that can only be harmonized bv changing fronls for Judge Kent. Let it's have Kent and peace. Wednesday the Massachusetts House of Representatives passed the bill providing for the State to purchase and run the railroads tunning through the Hoosac tunnel by a vote littie° 10 Yesterday, however, after a bv 11T'*?™0*’ k'" was reconsidered 000 for the coracle!! h ? aPProPriatC9 S200. quests the Governor \na'r0 '"T’’ “d ^ the most feasible use of thT, ^ . „ , ^ ot tuv.nel to the next General Court.

The careful reader will find several indica tions in the news from Paris'published here tofore that are omit ous of evil to the Repub lic, the chief of which is the announcement of the Pope ot his ienewed friendship to France now that it is ruled by a government that will prfeserve order and civilization— which is an indication that he hopes that the new rulers will take a hand in the restoration of his temporal power in Italy. Happily France is in no condition for a war to accom plish that purpose. We are informed that by Julgo Rice's positive order t le cars of the Maine Central have been made too hot for the gamblers an that they have transferred their operations to another road where tiiey will be watche .

TEST OF THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE LAW EXEMPTING MANUFACTURES FROM TAXATION —THE CASE OF OXFORD. To the Editor of the Press: A case which has recently gone to the Su preme Court from Oxford, is of unusual impor tance to such towns as have offered “Exemp tion,” and to such parties as are now exempted by towns, or propose to accept offers of exemp tion which towns have made. The firm of E. Andrews & Co., have sued the town of Oxford to recover the amount of a tax paid by them under protest, on property which they claimed is exempt under the aet of the town. The defense of the town is, that the Act of the Legislature authorizing such ex emption is unconstitutional, and on this single rjucstion of the constitutionality of the law, the case has been made up by agreement and refer red to the court for decisioni A biief history of what has been done on ac count of the exemption act, at Welchville, which is the place where E. Andrews & Co’s mill is situated, may perhaps be of interest as showing the practical working of the plan offering exemption from taxation for the pur pose of increasing manufacturing. Before the town of Oxford offered exemption to manufac turers, the only manufacturing at Welchville, was that of lumber. Messrs. King & Co., had large mills then, and it was to supply their mills with logs, that the extensive pine forests of Oxford Plains w ere cut down. Some years since their large mill was burned, and as the supply of lumber was getting short, it was not rebuilt. At the time of the passage of the Exemption Act by the town, the lumber business had gradually dwindled down to what could be done in one old and decaying saw mill and an intermittent manufacture of match-splints in an old building adjoining. The village was not of very inviting appearance at that time; slabs, waste, and the debris of lumber piles, were scattered by the street sides and in the mill yards, and very little seemed to have come back to the village in the shape of improve ments, for the wealth of adjoining forests which had disappeared and here been prepared for market. Soon after the passage of the act mentioued, Mr. John Harper huilt on the site of the old gang mill, a neat and commodious woolen mil', which has since heen constantly run, employin r from 40 to 50 hands. Four years ago E. Andrews Co. purchased the other side of tlffe privi lege, and established a four engine mill for the manufacture of leather board. Their mill has been run constantly night and day ever since, employing about a dozen workmen. A marked improvement in the appearance of the village has taken place since the establishment of these manufactories. Yards and fields have been e’eared of stnmps and rubbish, eight or ten dwelling houses have been built, besides a neat little church, and the whole village has an appearance of thrift, and moderate prosperity which is gratifying at present, and augurs well for the future. It should lie borne in mind that all the capi tal employed in conducting these mills has been brought into the towu; and notwithstanding ex emption, no property in the village pays less tax, but the aggregate tax of the place, in eith er real or persoual estate is larger than before. There are hundreds of unoccupied mill-privi leges in the State, similar to the one at Welch ville, which under the inducements offered by exemption and low prices of real estate in their vicinity, would undoubtedly gradually attract the attention of manufactur ers, and be similarly developed, carry ing markets to many farmers, keeping many young men and women at home who otherwise would seek mechanical employment in distant places, and doing more towards building and maintaininr/ railroads, perhaps, than can be done by the issue of bonds by non manufacturing towns. It would seem to he advisable, for towns and manufacturers to de fer any further action based on the exemption act of the State, until the case is decided. If the decision of the court allows towns to repu diate the contracts they have made, as Oxford is endeavoring to do, it must inevitably re tard the development of the manufacturing fa cilities of the State. Hon. J. H. Drummond of Portland is coun sel for the plaintiffs aud Hon. J. J. Perry of Oxford, for tho town. Observer. Welchville, May 28th, 1873. Labor ix Massachusetts.—Id the report of the Massachusetts Labor Bureau, there is an extended table given of the wages and earnings of those employed in manufacturing and me chanical employments. This table includes a total of 242 different occupations, and a total of 13,076 establishments. 'In those are employ ed 277,654 persons, of whom 177,500 are males over sixteen, 85,989 are females over fifteen, and 10,075 are youths and children. The total wages paid in 1870, were $117,785,691. The av erage number of days worked was 280 in the year. The average daily wages to males was 82.42; to females, $1.07; to children 68 cents. The average actual earnings to males over six teen, was 8536.52; to females over fifteen, was $2:17.22; to children was 8150.76. In a table of the earnings of unskilled labor ers, men without board,we find the average an nual earnings are $433.90. Ooe Hundred and Fifty-four Days of Sleighing.—According to the Northampton Gazette, Mr. O. P. Clark, who runs a stage from Wiliamsburg through West {Cummington to Hinsdale, makes the following remarkable statement: "He states that he run a sleigh over Windsor Hill five days in November, and did not run a wagou again until the 28 day of April, 1873, making 154 days of sleighing, or 154 days be tween the times of running a wagon. The mail was earned on foot from E *st Windsor to Hindsdale from April3d to April 27th, 22 days. He did not keep the road all the way until May 19, in consequence of‘snow drifts, and at date, May 24, drives over a drift four feet deep. The above is from experience and observation, and he thinks there is plenty of snow in places to make sleighing till July. Some plowland is twe and three feet under the snow, and the farmers talk of removing it to put in their crops.” Rumor of Higher Insurance Rates.—A New York special say3 that the difficulty be tween the Board of Insurance Underwriters and various companies still continues to wear a formidable aspect. A reporter was informed bv a prominent insurance man to-day that the oject of certain parties was to oblige the bus iuess community of this city to pay the losses sustained by the insurance companies by the Chicago and Boston fires. In other words, ac cording to the reporter’s information, the com bination had for its purpose the determination to put the risks up in this city at as high a fig ure as possible, and to keep them there. Postal Affairs.—A Washington despatch says that the Postmaster General states that he is unable so to construe the new postal act as to permit the free transmission of exchanges and papers in the county of publication. He also states that he expects again to recommend to Congress the adoption of the postal telegraph system. He is quiet,y collecting additional in formation upon the subject, but has not detail ed a large force for that purpose, as had been stated. Congregational Publishing Society.—The annual meeting of the Congregational Publica tion Society was held in Boston Thursday. The circulation of the Well Spring is 30.000 a week and 500,000 copies of the Pilgrim’s Lesson Pa per have been circulated. The cash receipts have been $112,229.01. Cash balance on band May 1, $0975.76. The society has received for needy schools $12,223,75, and given away $12, 836.85, in 850 towns and localities all over the country, and a few in foreign countries. News and Other Items. Two Wisconsin girls captured five wolves last week. Women iu Florida make from $18 to $23 a week braiding palmetto hats. Bret Harte has secured an injunction against the importation of his hooks printed in Eng land. Gen. Munroe, who commanded the 8th Mas sachusetts in its famous march through Balti more, died Monday, aged 61. Writers of indecent matter on postal cards are subject to a fine of not less than $100, nor more than $5,000 for each offense. A window-sill at New London, Conn., has been pretty effectually eaten up by a peculiar insect, not much larger than a mosquito, which apparently, is partial to that locality. Gov. Hartranft, of Pennsylvania, vetoed eighty-six bills, and at his request over one hundred were recalled and put in less objec tionable shape. In a turkey stealing case at Xorwich, the other day, a woman testified that she knew her turkeys “by their walk, their countenance and their manner of roosting.’ The experiment recently made in Ohio, of placing women at the head of all the schools below the high sehools, is pronounced a decid ed success. Our “Far West” correspondent says he pre fers roast ox to Modocs any day. The latter are a shack-nasty lot, who cut up badly, and arc apt to leave a fellow bald. The Lynchburg (Va.) Press is astonished a the amount of tobacco coming to market. The warehouses are stuffed full, and the dealers never knew such a time. Still .the prices are kepi at the highest notch.

His explorations will commence at Mount Desert, Me. This is from the Augusta, Ga., Chronicle; “De'inquent subscribers should not permit their daughters to wear this paper for a bustle. There being so much due on it. there is danger of taking cold.” Five men from Canuon’s Station were cap sized from a sail boat east of Gregory’s Point, Conn., Sunday, ind one of them Daniel Stur gis Abbott was drowned. The others .were picked up by a schooner. The whole party was under the influence of liquor. The people of Waverly, R. 1. were greatly agitated a few days siuce, over the excavation of a box supposed to contain human remains. The mysterious box was dug from the earth, and a justice of the peace called to see it open ed, when, to the disgust of the crowd, the car cass ot a uog was discovered. Levi Souls was hanged at Mariou Court house, S. C., last Friday, for the murder of another whits man. Under the gallows he said intemperance had been his ruin, but continued • “1 am going to rest; I hope you will all meet me in heaven. My faith is in God, and I am ready to go.” People down in Kentucky have started a re port that C ipt. Jack is n son of Capt. Jack Chambers, who was born near Frankfort, in that State, went to California with a party of fortune seekers as early as 1845 or 1846, and af terward fell in with the Modoc Indians, and maricd the daughter of their head chief. The wild manln the woods has made his ail. nual appearance once more, and very early, ha being this time in Fannin County, Georgia. He is represented to be eight feet high, and in a re cent fight with some of the citizens who at tempted to capture him, he killed one of them, as represented, and tore off the tail of a horse. Diplomatic circles are much exercised at the condition of affairs upon our Mexican border. The most sensational projects are seriously dis cussed by diplomats, who claim to have infor mation that our troops in western Texas are be ing reinforced, and that the Mexican Border Commission will approve greaterclaims against Mexico than that country can liquidate. An illustration used by Mrs Livermore last evening, drawu from Wellington’s endurance under the “hammering” at Waterloo, calls to mind the remark attributed to an old peninsu lar soldier at that time, who, upon being told that Well'ngton hal declared that he should fight it out if necessary, all summer, or some similar remark,replied in a common-place way: “Oh, if the Duke has said that, why. the other fellow wiil have to give in!” The idea of speak ing of Napoleon I, as “the other fellow” is es pecially good.—[Boston Journal. Says the Utica Herald: The man who thought anybody could millc a cow, don’t think so any more. He bought a cow yesterday, and last evening ho took a new pail and a raisin box, and started for the stable. Ho revolved out of the stable through a window in just three min utes. At the same time the tin pail was heard wandering among the rafters, and the raisin box came bounding out of the door. The hired girl made a recounoisance, in force, and report ed that the cow was standing on her horns, so to speak, and wiggling her hind legs for more I worlds to conquer. STATE NEWS.

The catch of codfish on the eastern coast of this State is said to be unprecedented the pres ent year. The winter herring fishery has yield ed over 3100,000. During the past week severe thunder showers have been experienced in the eastern section of the State. A general complaint is made that the hard winter has killed the -pplo trees. 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 of disease in the system, the heat is pretty sure to develop them. The bilious, the dys peptic, the nervous, the debilitated, suffer more at this period of the year than at any other. They, there ore, require an invigorating and regulating medicine, and this desideratum has been pi iced with in the reach of all in the form of Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters. To recount the uses of this invaluable pre ventive an l remedy, seems like repeating a familiar fact that has been notorious everywhere for many, many years. Who doe9 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. — ■ i SPECIAL NOTICES.

Stevens : Dear Sir—This is to show ttiut my son was taken sick in January, 1864. with Scrofula, which came out in large sores and ulcers on his leg and hip. His leg snd hip was swelled more than twice its natural size. He had several doctors of high standing in their profession—two from Boston and three from Charleston—without getting a bit better. He was obliged to lie wherever he wasnlaced, for he had no nse of his limbs whatever. When we had given up all hopes of his living, we were told to try VEGE TINE, the great blood remedy; and he had taken it but a short lime before we could see a great change. The sores run so bad that we had to change the cloths four or five times a r’ay. Still, he was getting better; for he conld move his limbs and help himself a little. He was soon able to sit up in bed, and, by constant use of VEGETINE, it has cured him. He has a l ime leg which he will probably have for life; but we all honestly believe, if we bad used VEGETINE before we had bothered with those doctors, it would have saved the use of his leg, and restored it to nat ural health. I hope all those troubled with Scrofula will read this testimony of me and my son, who is now woll, and able to speak for himself. CATHERINE MAHONEY, DANIEL MAHONEY, 19 Trenton St., Charlestown, Mass. May 10‘ 1872. The above plain but honest statement conclusively shows the quick and thorough cloansing effects of the VEGETINE in Scrofula. What is Vegctinei It is a compound extracted from barks, roots, and herbs. It is Nature’s remedy. It is perfectly harm less from any bad effect upon the system. It is nour ishing and strengthening. It acts directly upon the blood. It quiets the nervous s stem. It gives you good, sweet sleep at night. It is a gieat panacea for our aged fathers and mothers, for it gives them strength, quiets their nerves, and gives them Na ture’s sweet sleep, as has been proved by many an aged person. It is the great Blooci-Purifter. It is a soothing remedy for our children. It has relieved and cured thousands. It is very pleasant to take— every child likes It. Unsolicited Evidence. Springfield, Me., May 14, 1872. Mr. H. It. Stevens: Dear Sir—My daughter has been out of health for about two years. About a year ago she bad a tumor come on her ►ide, which was very painful. I saw VEGETINE advertised in the Farmer, and sent to Bangor and got two bottles. She is now tak ing the second b ttle; her health is much improved and the tumor is going away as fast as it came. Everyone in this vicinity knows what VEGETINE has done for my daughter, and I take every opportu nity to recommend it to those who are not aware of its great value. Yours respectfully, MRS. SUSAN C. RANDALL. ROOM PAPERS! ROOM PAPERS!
