The Gardiner Reporter come* out in a de cided article in favor of the nomination of Mr. Stone. The Bangor Whiy denies that Hon. James M. Stone was telegraphed by parties in that city to go there for a political consultation. A Halifax despatch announces the death' of Hon. Joseph Howe, recently inaugurated as Governor of Xova Scotia, Sunday morn ing. ____ TnK town of Unity has elected Diugley deb egatcs. Unity is the native town of Mr. 1 Dingley, and shows that a prophet is not al ways without honor in his own country. The Stoats Zeituuy believes that the resig nation of Thiers and the election of McMahon were in a great measure due to the action of the Czar of Russia and the Empress of Aus tria and Germany, who were uneasy at the republican tendencies of France. The telegraph is silent, and the reliable Augusta politician gives us no further news of tho hot Diugley-Stoiie fight at the State capita!. They are, a wise, discreet people, and are doubtless giving their attention to Kent and peace. The New York Legislature adjourned Fri day, after a session of 142 days New York legislatures do not show up very well when in vestigated ; but the one just adjourned, though not perfect, is a great improvement on its predecessors of the past few years. The friends of Hon. Noah Woods, who ear ly named lira for Governor, have not left the field, as a notice appears in the Bangor Com mercial, calling his friends to meet at their “usual place.” Will he be the railroad candi date? The New York papers have diversified headings for the Bowen-Tilton-Beeeher man ifesto, which was published Saturday. The Tribune calls it “the slanders against the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher.” The Times ap propriately terms it “galvanizing a filthy scandal.” The Watervillc Mail thinks that the agree ment of the Lumbermen’s Convention to fix the prices of the various kinds of lumber at certain prices lor the present season,has more to do with the dullness of that important bus iness and the retarding of building, than the threatened strikes in New York, Brooklyn and elsewhere. The New York papers how ever, attribute It to the uncertainty on ac count of the threatened strikes. Jin. Peimsoll’s bill for the protection of British sailors came up before the Ilause of Commons,Wednesday aft jrnoon of last week, and failed to pass to a second readino. This is considered as effectually disposing of it for this session at least. The ship-owners fought the measure,and had to aid them also, an apparent general lack of interest on the subject, the prime ministcr^himself, not betng present during the debate upon the bill. The increase of bank notes in the United States for the year ending in May, was $11, 258,500, and the decrease of treasury notes $359,287, giving a net increase of cuirency for the year, of $10,899,213; yet, despite this increase, with gold at 1.10, as it was in May, 1872,and 118 now, the value of our paper cur rency in the currency of the world,has shrunk $25,303,794. And this great discrepancy is largely due to a clique of deperate gamblers in New York. The telegraph informs the public that the directors of a New York country bank have settled their affair with the burglars who stole $300,000 by giving them 35 per cent of that sum as a reward for their enterprise or possibly for demonstrating that their vaults are insecure. These business-like directors also promise the thieves immunity from pun ishment. Unless bank robbing is to be placed among the honorable professions, the bank officers, whose names are known, should be indicted being accessories to the theft after it was committed, tried and con victed to hard labor for a term of years. Bank robbing will hereafter increase. Maihe congressmen seem inclined to let the gubernatorial contest “gang itsain gait’’ without interference—at all events, without very lively and aggressive interference on their part. Senator Hamlin is luring the wily trout in the depths of the northern wilder ness. Senator Morrill is naturally very quiet at his home in Augusta. Speaker Biaiuo is conversing with Brigham, in Utah. Mr. Hale is in Michigan. Gcn.Hersey is in the west Mr. Frye takes to the woods to-day, going a fishing. The absence of the political mag nates perhaps accounts for the ludicrously confused attitude of some small politi cians on the governorship question. We suggest for the guidance of these bewildered citizens, that it will be safe to go for Kent. P-yjsox Bbowjtlow (we wish he was clear of the salary steal), addresses a characteris tic letter to D. H. Hill, editor of the North Carolina Home, and late Lieutenant-General in the rebel service, called forth by an edito rial of the ex-General, which savagely exult ed over the death of Gen. Canby, and attrib uted the death of Lincoln, Stanton, Gen. Thomas, and the paralysis of Parson Brown low, to a retribution of God for fighting the . outh Hill charges Gen. Canby of tying up fore the war, it yL , ,rei>,led’tUal bc* shment by regulaily ^^j pun" least of all,Gen. Hill should bldn ®,c ”> and who, while in command 0f the8,. „c''arfcR troops in North Carolina, had twtiuslv men tried and hung within twenty-four hours thereafter, simply for being loyal to the Union. In view of this, the Parson conceives that there would be a fitness in Cnpt. ja.^ and Gen. Hill uniting to write a treatise on civilization for distribution among the Ku Klux. He also states that he is recovering from his paralysis, caused by exposure and privation in rebel prisons, and when he finish es his term in the Senate, he proposes to re vive the Knoxville Whig, when he will make i t hot for Hill and his class. ' The last sale of coal indicates, as predicted that the price of that article will be no lower this season, but higher. The coal and rail road ring have full control of the business, and are said to be in league with producers in England. It is true that there never was a larger amount of coal at the mines and along the railroad waiting shipment, and that unus ual quantities are being mined; but the pro prietors of mines are evidently doiug their ut most to exasperate the miners to "strike, by inereasing the hours of labor. Our State papers arcVoblishing statcments to shew til at Mr. Dingley opposed the eider legislation of 1872, and' voted to repeal that law in the last legislature. The article of the Lewiston Journal in January, 1872, on the subject of temperance legislation, was widely noticed for its timely and judicious sugges tions, and the declaration that no good re sults could come fiom laws on any subject that was in advance of public opinion. Editobiai, Miseries.—Our readers are entitled to an apology for the fearful typo graphical blunders, both in caption and text, of our leading article in yesterday’s issue. In spite of tlie most legible penmanship and the most careful proof reading, the editor is still at the mercy of heedless compositors, and lia ble to have his breakfast spoiled by the star ing prominence of errors which he had labo riously eliminated from a disheartening proof sheet. The heart of the typo seems to expe rience a fiendish delight in dragging the har row of a garbled text across the editorial soul. And such is life—in the sanctum.—Bamior Whit;. _ _ Address of Gen. John Marshall Brown. Among tbo many excellent addresses of Dec oration day that have been printed we have read none that were more practical, timely and thoughtful than that delivered by Gen. John Marshall Brown at Augusta which the Kenne bec Journal publishes in full. We make the following abstracts: Those who die for their country should not be forgotten by their countrymen. The palms of the victor’s crown may fade; sooner or later must be said “ashes to ashes, dust to dust,” but Honor does not die, the lustre of great exam ples does not fade. In far distant years the plough of the husbandman may turn its fur rows where we stand; these graves may be for gotten, hut the deeds of their silent occupants will have gone into history and the Eweet aro ma of their sacrifices will last forover. As wo look about us it seems as if this could scarcely be. Barely eight years have passed since wel come Peace smiled upon the land, and yet tbo hurry of these latter days has almost driven that time of rejoicing from our minds; the grass has grown green and been cut down, the flowers have bloomed and withered, and once a year We gather them and strew them here. So recent the straggle, and yet how remote. Young men walk our streets in the full flush of manly vigor who only dimly remember those days of gloom and glory. Thousands of happy, laughing children at the widowed mothers knee, look awe struck at the relics on the w all, and ask for stories of the mysterious past, when the father carried the sword or musket to the war; the father whose grave, perchance, ao one knows, who when he saiu “Good bye.” kissed with such love those baby lips, but never came back for those baby eyes to see. But to day we bring this Past nearer to us; we have turned aside from the crowded thoroughfare of the world’s progress to wander among tho graves of our comrades and offer them our tribute, and pledge ourselves again to their memory and their work; not us alone, not here alone by this beautiful river, but by thou sands of others, beyond the hills to the far north east, beyond the hills to the distant west, wherever a wounded heart came home to die, is this ceremony repeated; wherever on the painful road he fell, some hand to-day performs the sacred duty. Alas, that so many sleep we know not where !On distant battle-fields,in weary prisons and sad hospitals, their eyes caught the last glimpse of the brightness of the sky, and now alone the tender hand of nature decorates their unknown graves. The lesson of this day is plain Choose what subject you may, the thought will be ringed with the color of this beautiful memo rial. The legacy of the patriotic dead is tko noble example of their lives; the duty of the living is to emulate that example and perfect their work. Do what we may, this day must be sacred to one topic; the ' tender memories of the past, the solemn exigencies of the pres ent; the various possibilities of the future. * W * 9 * Fellow citizens, am 1 wrong in saying that we need more loyalty, wc, ourselves, here, now, to-day? Loyalty is obedience to the laws; it is more than that; it is respect for authority, it is faith in onr institutions, it is self-respect, it is the spirit of mutual sacrifice, of charity. The savage is selfish by instinct and remains selfish of necessity. Association implies and compels aelf-denial. Every man parts with something of his natural independence when he takes a companion. He gives up something that he may receive something which alone lie could not have. The citizen of a free state, where the people are the source and spring of power, cannot be selfish without injuring his neighbor and bis fellow; the development of a government is logical; from mutual benefits grew mutual obligations, and the concessions and compromises which are necessary for the public good become crystolized into laws. Obedience to these laws is a paramount duty of the citizen; without this loyalty there cau be no virtue, no true happiness, no honor, nothing but vice aud critao and disease and death. In this democratic republic the people are the law makers—wliat cau we hope for if law makers become law breakers; if they make laws, or cause them to be made, which canuot be obeyed; if they look complacently upon fla grant disobedience, or smile at the paltry meth ods by which are evaded solemn enactments which have the seal and sanction of the State? Hoes the almost fatal facility with which wo make aud unmake laws, make the responsibili ty less serious, or lesson the need of patient research, wise preparation, searching criticism? How can we exemplify our confidence in out own judgments when the statute book con tains for years laws which are not and can not be obeyed. After great periods of excitement comes re action, after great exaltation depression, after great victories apathy, often over-confidence and boasting, sometimes, unhappily, arrogance and intoleiancc and false pride. Fellow citizens, can this be said of us? It is said of us; it is true of us and makes our duty plain, to shake off thi3 sloth and humble our boasting pride, and, cherishing the memories and examples of this day, to .work steadfastly, each for himself and each for all and all for the State, so that honor and virtue and religion, and good government may revive and prosper and prevail. There is no sound or threat of war, but the country is not at rest, and there is much earuest patient work to be done. Free governments have been subverted, the greatest nations have had their decline and fall. Have we solved the problem in barely one hundred years which the Bepublics of the old world es sayed for centuries in vain? The name of Ee public is nothing without the substance; ma jorities may be tyrannical and despotic. There is a servitude which is contentment and happi ness; there is a freedom which is not free. Let ns not cradle ourselves in vanity and hug ouf own conceits and say to each other, we are great, our system is perfect, we are the envy of the nat ons, the refuge of the oppressed. Wo used to say thosa very words when millions of oarcountrymen were slaves, bought and sold and beaten aud murdered under the very folds of our Starry Flag. God be praised that He has permitted us to cut that cancer out and wipe away that stain, though with our blood. Having done this tardy justice is there no more to do; is the problem solved, is our sjstem perfect? Wc have the right of suffrage; do we use itwisely? Are our public men the purest? Have we lost the right to criticise and punish? Are men in power always the best men, are nur represcntatiucs faithful to their trusts, do we relieve ourselves of the reproach of misgovern ment by delegating our right to make laws to others? Have wc less crime and more virtue than others whom we call less free? Ah, let our hearts respond, touched with tho spirit of this day, aud in the name and memory of that innumerable throng that have gone before, let us look the truth in the face and search out the disease, and having found it, cure it, if lean lie cured.

It seems that I the minister of a certain parish died a year or | so ago, appointing as his executors two friends noth of whom were admirals in the British | navy. Among his effects was a bulky package ! Waled up carefully and endorsed, “Inviolably j sacred; to be destroyed.” After mature delib | oration, the executors decided that as faithful I trustees of what tlieir friend had left behind : him, they could not destroy anything without j at least knowing what they were destroying. So they opened the envelope and found therein two documents, one of which was a dispensa tion from the Pope permitting the deceased to retain his position as a clergyman of the Church of England, though actually a priest of the Church of Rome; the other document con tained a list of clergymen in the same diocese or its vicinity, who were in possession of simi lor dispensations, and consequently to he relied on for sympathy and co-operation in ease of necessity. If this statement was not made by a well known and responsible clergyman, it would be set down as an obvious attempt at imposition. Uak Obove Semdtaby.—The examination at the close of the spring term at the Oak Grove Seminary, Vassalboro, took place Fri das'.

The following letter from REV. E. S. BEST, Pas tor M. E. Church, Natick, Mas9., will be read with interest by many physicians. Also those suffering from the same disease as afflicted the son of the Rev E. S. Best. No person can doubt this testimony, and there is no doubt about the curative powers of Vegetine. Natick, Mass., Jan. 1,1873. Dear Sir—We have good reason for regarding your Vegetine a medicine of Hie greatest value. We feel assured that it has been the means of saving our son’s life. He is now seventeen years of age: for the last two years he has suffered from necrosis of his leg, caused by scrofulous affection, and was so far re duced that nearly all who saw him thought his recov ery impossible. A council of able physicians could give us but the faintest hope of his ever rallying, two of the number declaring that he was beyond the reach of human remedies, that even ampntation could not save him, as ho had not vigor enough to endure the operation. Just then wo commenced giving him Vegetine, and from that time to the present he has been continuously improving. He has lately resumed his studies, thrown away crutches and cane, and walks about cheerful and strong. Though there Is still some discharge from the open ing where his limb was lanced, we have the fullest confidence- that in a little time he will bo perfectly cured. He hag taken about three dozen bottles of VEGE TINE, but lately uses but little, as he declares that he is too well to be taking medicine. Respectfully, E. S. BEST. MRS. L. C. F. BEST. The range of disorders which yield to the influence of this medicine, and the number of defined diseases which it never fails to cure, are greater than any other single medicine has hitherto been recommended for, by any other than the proprietors of some quack nostrum. These diseases are Scrofula and all Erup tive diseases and Tumors, Rheumatism, Gout, Neu ralgia, and Spinal complaints, and all Inflammatory symptoms, Ulcers^all Syphilitic diseases, Kidney and Bladder diseases, Dropsy, the whole train of painful disorders which so generally afflict American women, and which carry annually thousands of them to pre mature graves; Dvspepsia, that universal curse of American manhood; Heartburn, Piles, Constipation, Nervousness, inability to sleep aud impure blood. This is a formidable list of human ailments for any single medicine to successfully attack, and it is not probable that auy ont article before the public has the power to cure the quarter of them excepting the Vegetine. It lays the axe at the root of the tree of disease by first 'Ulimininating every impurity from the blood, promoting the secretions, opening the pores —the great escape valves of the system—invigorating the liver to its full and natural action, cleansing the stomach and strengthening digestion. This much accomplished, the speedy and the permanent cure of not only the diseases we have enumerated, but like wise the whole train of chronic and constitutional disorders is certain to follow. This is precisely what Vegetine does, and it does it so quickly and so eas ily, that it is an accomplished fact almost before the patient is aware of it himself. ju2eodlw D. C. GOLDER, Over E. T.
