Saturday.—Moore vs. City of Portland. This is an action to recover damages for an alleged breach tf contract with reference to the construction of the Marginal Way. Ad damnum $30,000. The plaintiff claims that in the fall of 1871 ho en tered Into a contract with the city to move one hun dred anl seventeen thousand cubic yards of earth work, furnish two thousand piles and spurshorcs, driven and ^secured, and one hundred aud sixty five thousand feet of plank, for which hew .as to receive the sum of forty-seven thousand six hundred and seventy-five dollars; and that it was further mutual ly agroed that in case the full quantity of earth, piles and plank which the plaintiff had agreed to move and furnish should not bo required in tlio comple tion of the work abatement should be made as fol lows: thirty cents per cubic yard for earth excava tion ; piling four dollars per pair, and planking at the rate of thirteen dollurs per thousand.

He further claims that as a part of the 117, 003 yards of filling he was to be allowed 30,000 yards of harbor dredging; but that the plan of construc tion was afterwards changed by the city, which ren dered it impossible to use the dredging, and that he was thereby damaged $2200.

The quarterly session of Cumberland Lodge of Good Templars will meet with Evergreen Lodge at Morrill’s Corner, Deering, to-morrow, commencing at 10 o’clock a. m. The bugs and the drought are injuring early vegetables, especially cabbages. The Deering horse-cars transported over three thousand i>assengers on decoration day. A boy employed at Pond Cove, Cape Eliza- I beth, by Mr. W. F. Safford, recently fell upon an old scythe in a grass field and was badly cut in the side. Dr. Dana dressed the wound. Don’t forget to procure seats for St. Peter before they are all taken. It is said that Rev. Mr. Bolmer will remain for the present with St. Paul’s church. The merry month of May belied her name and went off panting. After St. Peter. What? The Hospital Fair. The air was fragrant yesterday with the faint sweet smell of lilacs just bursting into blos som. June came up to the scratch singling yester day. A young man on Congrcs3 street Saturday night was called a “brute” because he acciden tally stopped on a lady’s trailing dress, worn, probably, to conceal hideous feet. Ladies should bear in mind that trails are not fit for street wear. In Europe they are only worn on the street by women of doubtful reputation. A package of black lace, “cut on tbe bias’* (is that correct), was picked up near the Press office Saturday, aud now awaits an owner. Much complaint is made concerning the de struction of small birds near the Grave’s Hill road by certain amateur sportsmen of this city. If the offence be repeated it is proposed to ar rest the budding nimrods. The Musical Club give a coucert at Rossini Hall for the benefit of the Hospital fund on the 4th inst. Tickets are now for sale at Lowell’s and Stockbridge’s. Sixty dollars was realized for tbe Hospital fund at the performance of “Peep O’Day by the Emerald Club. Some kind and anonymous person has sent a barrel of flour to the Hospital Headquarters, aud the Treasurer is anxious to know to whom to credit it. .rrot. c. i-. Brackett of Bowdoiu College, was in tjwn Saturday for the purpose of testifying before the Municipal Court. He has been an alysing some ‘'hop beer,” and finds that it con tains 3J per cent as alcohol. “Small beer.” A collision of teams on Park street Saturday evening eansed considerable excitement aud some damage. The lumber in Barnum’g reserved seats has been bought at a bargain by the Overseers of the Pool to be used In some building about the Alms Hot’se. The Anna Scarbird concert troupe is at the Falmouth. It lias just returned from St. John, X. B., and gives an entertainment at Ports mouth, N. H., this evening. The proper thing to do now is to go over to the Hospital Fair Headquarters, jiurehase an umbrella, and then return the raiu-sliedder to the managers. A well-known member of the Cumberland Bar has set the example. The dust flew at the corner of Lincoln and Wilmot yesterday afternoon as two dogs were about to part. One dog had been dusting the hide of another. A pig-stye on Larch street was set on fire by some hoys about six o’clock last evening. They had probably been reading Charles Lamb, aud wanted some roast pig a la chinois. They would do well to turn thtir attention to the perusal of the revised statutes. The Park was excellently well patronized last evening. It seemed so rural that many made calves of themselves. A polar wave swept over the city Saturday night. People who had been complaining of the hot weather begged pardon piteously. There was a brilliant display of Northern light last night. As will be seen by onv miscellaneous notices the Fays will continue their surprising exhibi tions a week longer. The Preble House is being fitted up for sum mer travel. There is a petition on foot asking tlie City Government to employ tlio Portland Hand to give an out-door concert 0110 evening in each week. Music is needed to sootho the savage breasts of the young loafers on Congress street who persist in insulting every woman that pass 63 Two sons of Mr. Fessenden, aged nine and twelve years, went down the harbor on a boat ing excursion Saturday, and did not return when evening set in, thus causing great anxie ty to their friends. They returned late at night, having made the tour of Hog Island. P O S of A.—Saturday evening Camp No. l.of the State of Maine,Patriotic Order Sons of America, was instituted at Arcana Hall by H. .1, Stager, National Secretary. This is tlie first Camp as yet instituted in this state, hut it starts out with a good list of charter members, who are not alone able to build up a good Camp but may pioneer the organization of many oth ers in this section of the country. As this ord er is new to many of our readers we- will hero give a brief review of its objects and present standing. The Order was first organized in 1847 and continued in existence until the breaking out of the late war, when a general enlistment of its members compelled its suspension. Up to that date it had made considerable progress, as subordinate Camps were to be formed in all the New England and Middle States, as well as in the majority of the Western and Southern States. In lSGli the Order was re-organized in Pennsylvania,and to-day there are State Camps in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, New Jer sey and Maryland, representing from fifteen to two hundred subordinate camps each. In such States as have no State Camp, (it takes ten subordinate camps to form a State Camp,) the National Camp exercises jurisdiction. At pres ent the headquarters of the order are at Phila delphia. Pennsylvania leads the list in having the greatest number of members, and shows nearly twenty-five thousand members under its jurisdiction. The National camp has been under way but one year, and consequently lit tle effort has as yet been made to extend the Order, but at its next annual sitting in Juno, at New Y'ork city, measures will be provided whereby the subordinate camps of tlie Order will be extended in every State of tlie Union. me principles ot the organization are,hrst, pat riotism. By it is meant a devoted love for the free institutions cf our country, of which edu cation in our common schools is the safe guard, our national constitution and laws the basis, and our eternal vigilance the guarantee. Remembrance is the next; believing that char ity should begin at home the members attend their sick, bury their dead, and contribute to the support of the widows and orphans of de ceased brethren. Fidelity to each other, a be lief in an allwise God, in the Holy Bible in our bauds, a disbelief in the infallibility of any man, a contempt for political corruption aud a firm determination never to yield up America’s rights into the hands of America’s enemies, concludes their distinctive character. Any man who is eighteen years of age, born under the flag of the United States, obedient to law in his habits aud calling, can become a member. In excluding natives of other coun tries from their camp-fires, the Order does not do so in any spirit of hatred or national jeal ousy, but claim for themselves the right, as they grant to others, the privilege of fraterniz ing. The Order is not partizan in character, neither does it administer any political obliga tion, believing that Americans, as well as those who accept our hospitality,if educated properly will vote right and place only good and true men iu power. There are three degrees iu the Order, the Red, White and Bine, attainable iu progression. The ceremonies are instructive and beautiful, and based upon the history of our country. The following is a list of the officers of the new Camp: Fast President, G. Curtis Ham; President, Albert Hawes; Vice President, Franklin Berry; Master of Forms, Abijah Purinton; Secretary, Frank B. Richards; Ass’t Secretary, Oliver Hodsdon; Financial Sec , E. H. Bennett; Chaplain, Samuel W. Rogers; Conuctor, Wm. L. Ham; Guards, George M. Call aud Alanson Ordway; Sentinels, John W. Cortland and Daniel Avery; Trustees, E. H. Burns, Franklin Enstis, J. P. Torry. Com. Transportation to the Banger Con vention* Arrangements have been made as follows, for railroad and steamboat fares to the Republi can State Convention in Bangor, June 19. Maine Central.—Half fare tickets will be sold from the offices where delegates start,good from the 13th to the 20th, inclusive. A special train will leave Lewiston at 5 o’clock the morn ing of the convention, airiving in Bangor at 10.30, and returning the same evening. Dele gates from the western part of the State and Bath must take the regular train. Grand Trunk.—Delegates from the towus along the line of that road, will be furnished tickets to Danville and return for one and one third fares. Tickets will be furnished by th e station agent, to whom the delegate must pre sent a certificate which will be provided by Col. F. E. Shaw, member of the State commit tee. There will be no other than regular trains. European & North American. President Jewett, in the temporary absence of the Super intendent, writes that there is no doubt but what half faie tickets will be issued to the con vention by that road and its connections,includ ing Bangor and Piscataquis. Portland and Bangor Steamer. — The company limning the City of Richmond will take delegates and others from Portland and intermediate points, to Bangor and retnrn for one fare. When purchasing tickets, those go ing to the convention will give their names to the clerk, and pay full fare, and be furnished with a free pass returning. The boat leaves Portland at ten o’clock Wednesday evening, be fore the convention. The other roads have not yetbeen heard from. Body Found.—Yesterday morning, about eight o’clock, Mr. Coburn, who was standing near Galt’s Wharf, perceived a body which had been left exposed by the tide in a nearly up right position, imbedded in the mud at the foot of the dock. He fished the body out and deliv ered it to Coroner Gould, who had it placed in the Eastern Cemetery for identifica ion. Some time in the afternoon the body was identified as that of Howard Farrar, a young married man, 21 years old, who has been missing about nine weeks. Our readers will remember that about that date we spoke of a cry and a sudden plunge near Galt’s Wharf. It was at that time, undoubtedly, that Farrar came to his death. The body was very much disfigured aud was only identified by the clothing, and by the mu tilated condition of the fingers of the left hand. Dr. True was, by request of the relatives, call ed to view the hotly, but found no marks of violence upon it. Under the circumstances Coroner Gould judged an inquest to be unnec essary, and only a source of expense to the city. _ The Floral Festival.—The Floral Festi val at City Hall Saturday evening, was a mark ed success, and agreeably surprised all who at tended it. Though much was expected, so complete a triumph was not looked for. The large uumber of children, arrayed in white with a dash of pink now and then, had a very pretty effect. The singing was excellent, .some of it noticeably so. The trio by the Misses Leavitt and Miss King won great favor with the audience, and the solo “Going Home with Willie” by Miss Annie Leavitt, called forth a double encore. Great credit is due to Mr. Fitch for his admirable management of the af fair, and the large audience which filled the Hall have occasion to thank him for a remark ably pleasant evening’s entertainment. BATTUE OF N EWBDRN.—Boswortll Post will bring ou the “Battle of Newbern" in lirst dass style at Music Hall on the evenings of the 5th and Glh inst. Extraordinary exertions have been made to “mount” the play with a careful regard to the time, place and circumstances of its action, and our readers may rest assured that it will bo put upon the boards in a manner worthy of being witnessed. Reserved seats aro now for sale at Stockbridge’s. Lectures and Demonstrations.—Prof. I. Stearns begins a series of lectures on psycholo gy at Army and Navy I-Iall this evening. He promises a novel and amusing entertainment.— Judging from the testimonials lie shows the promise will be fulfilled. The demonstrations are claimed to be “laughter-provoking, side splitting and rib-wrenching." If this be the case it will furnish a Cue Celd for items. Dust.—We understand the street sprinklers who are laboring so hard to keep down the dust on many of our principal streets, are to in crease the number of their teams and will make an effort to-day to obtain sufficient sub scription on Commercial street to wet that aw ful dusty thoroughfare, which has been almost insufferable during the past week. Wake TTr.—The 10th of June is near at hand and the Ladies Executive Committee find it necessary to learn wliat is to be expected from those towns or individuals in tlie State who do not propose to be represented by a tabic at the Fair, but wlio do propose to make dona tions. That there are many such we know, but our knowledge must bo more definite. Will not those ladies or organizations who intend to make douatious, or who wish to ask any ques tions relative to the matter, communicate im mediately with Mrs. J. T. Gilman, President of the Ladies Executive Committee? 1 aucy and useful articles are of courso solic ited, but the Committee also desire contribu tions of gutter, eggs, pickles, cheese and house hold articles of every description. There is to he a “kitcheu table;” therefore such articles, no matter how small the amount, will he espe cially acceptable.. All articles addressed to “Maine General Hospital Fair, Portland.” will he forwarded free of charge by the railroads, and delivered, freo of charge by the express companies. During the eight days of the Fair, Congress Hall, near City Hall, will be open day and eve ning, for the accommodation of visitors from out of town. It is to be used as a place of de posit for packages, clothing, &c., and responsi ble persons will be in attendance to take charge of the hall and to furnish all needed iuformo tion to strangers.

A large number from Free Street School were present last evening and assisted greatly in the singing. The fact of two of their best lady teachers leaving made it an occasion of unusu al interest. Fire.—The Portland & Rochester railroad depot at Buxton Centre, was consumed by fire Saturday morning. It was not a very valuablo piece of property, and the loss can ho estimated low down in the hundreds. The building caught fire by sparks from the passing engine of a freight train.

The Mexican Minister has not yet received a full official account of the particulars attend ing Gen. McKenzie’s operations against the Diapans and Kiekapoos, and therefore is not prepared to present the case to our government with a view to an explanation. There is no doubt hut that these will he placed on the ground of duty of the government to protect its citi zens and punish all hostile invaders on its soil whenever found, the Mexican government be ing unwilling or unable to prevent such incur sion. It is said in military circles that the ope tions of McKenzie will doubtless serve as a warning to all armed bands who cross to our territory for plundering or murderous purposes. It is not thought in diplomatic quarters that any change will be made in the Freucli lega tion at Washington. The Parfiic-Jfobilicr Sait. Nothing has been heard at the Department of Justice as to the course to be pursued by the defeniants in the suit against the Union Paci fic railroad Co. Ono of tho couusel for the government says the defendants will of course use every possible means to defeat the bill in equity aud that any astute lawyer could force their line of proceeding, which includes a de nial of the constitutionality of the act of Con gress authorizing the suit to be brought against parties connected with the Union Pacific and Credit Mobilier corporations. No one in offi cial circles can form an opinion as to the dura tion of tho suit, further than that several years will elapse before it can be brought to a termin ation. Street Improvements.

Camp on Banks of Fellow Creek, 21 miles north of Boyles’ Camp, Tide Lake Penin sular, May 29.—The cavalry anil artillery com mands and Warm Spring Indians under Col. Green,left Boyles’ camp at 2 o’clock this mom ing, and rode in hot haste to Clear Lake, where Gen. Davis issued special orders for the scouts. Bogus Charley, Steamboat Frank Sliacknasty Jim and Hooker Jim, accompanied tu® expedition to lead the way to Capt. Jack’s Willow Creek retreat, They led the troops to a point near Jack’s retreat, within a mile of his stronghold. Col. Hasbrouck passed up the north side of the creek with his squadron, and Capt. Jackson's squadron went over the creek along the south side. Capt. Hasbrouck, having a mile further to travel than Capt. Jackson, did not arrive at the stronghold in time to accom plish the desired coilnectiou. Jack was never theless, surprised. At 2o’clock this afternoon, Jackson’s men came across two pickets on a bluff near the creek, and ran them through the juniper to Jack’s retreat. The fleeing Modocs cried out “run quick, run quick, the soldiers are coming.” Capt. Jackson deployed his skir

mishers along the face of the bluff, and though expecting to receive a heavy fire, the men ran to the front like deer, under the lead of their officers. Suddenly, the Modocs, conversant with English, cried out, “surrend r wiyio tight? we ta*k P«ace; we like peace talk.” Bos ton Charley, the murderer of Kev. Dr Thomas, came in full view,and was immediately covered by a dozen rifles. Charley offered to surrender, and was allowed to come into camp. As he fewred the Warm Spring scouts, lie threw down Ins rifle and extended his hands in token of friendship, and the proffered member was cor dially grasped by the scouts. ^naney was tnen passed to the rear under a guard. Next ho was taken to the other Modoc captives and by them interviewed. He said that several of Capt. Jack’s best warriors wanted to leave him and come to our camp and volunteered to put up a job. His gun was re turned to him and he was allowed to depart on his mission. Hardly had this arrangement been effected when a rifle in the hand of Steam boat Frank was accidentally discharged. Sev eral Modocs who stood with unlifted hands de camped at this point. The accident was ex plained by Charley and all suspicions of foul play were banished when another accident caused Charley more annoyance. Capt. Has brouck’s crowd reached the edge of the creek as Charley came over the bluff and of course he was gathered as a prisoner the second time. Boston Charley, as peace commissioner, two hours afterwards was sent after the fleeing Mo does, lint failed to Overtake them. Had Has brouck formed the desired connection in time the entire hand would have been killed or cap tured, but it was impossible for liis command to accomplisli the task. His troops did all that could be done by any men. They rodo over fragments of lava and one mile further than the distance iiddenby Capt. Jackson’s com mand. The surprise resulted in the surrender of Boston Charley, l'r';ac;s3 Mary, sister of Capt. Jack, Black Jim’s woman and five other female Modocs, ranging from nine to ninety years of age, and seven ponies and mules. The Modocs actually slipped from the grasp of tho troops. Capt. Jack s retreat this time was in side a canon through which runs Willow Creek. It has precipitous sides, overhanging forty feet high. There arc but few places where the ca non can he entered by troops within six miles of Capt. Jack’s last home. The Modocs escap ed by running down tho canon. So now tho Modoc captives will try to wean more of Capt. Jack’s warriors from him. Longell’s Vallet, May 30.—At G o’clock yesterday morning tho troops left Wilsok Creek camp for a sharp and decisive scout, and u.ct with admirable success. The Warm Springs trailed the Modocs across tho creek and in a north-easterly direction, then duo north, and finally to a rocky cliff by Langell’s Valley on the cast. The halt was broken by a sudden yell from the Warm Spring Indians and cheers from the soldiers,Slid the command of forward was given by Col. Green. Capt, Hasbroucks squadron held another equally important posi tion, and was as usual on time. Along the crest of the bluff and down the steep trail on its sides charged the eutire force of 230 men. Suddenly four rifle shots were fired from the rocks and four bullets buzzed over the soldiers. A lino of skirmishers were deployed along the crc3t of the bluff which started the Modocs from their lair. About this time Scar Face Charlie and two or threo Modocs rushed down the rocks and cried out, “Wo surrender, don’t shoot.” Five Modocs came in and at once hos tilities ceased. Dr. Cabauess of Yreka, a contract surgeon, who has long been acquainted with the Modocs, went np among the rocks and made peace ne gotiations. All the Indians, including Jack, agreed to come in. Cabaness slept with them last night. A few moments since Scar Faced Charley, Old Sconchin and ten warriors surren dered, Capt. Jack and thirty others decamped during the night. Railroad Kpecnlatious. Chicago, May 1.—A number of prominent railroad men are in the city, among them are Horace F. Clark, Augustus Schell, of- New York, John Duff of Boston and John A Tracey. A good deal of interest has been created by the rumor that the New York Central iuterest had obtained control of a mojority of the stock of the North Western and of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific R, R., and would at the an nual election for directors which occurs here on Wednesday, make a radical change in the man agement by throwing out Mr. Traey and his friends. While it is probably true that Mr. Clark and associates hold a majority of the North Western and a large interest in the Rock Island & Pacific; the Illinois statute which per mits the election of only three directors at any annual election, would prevent an immediate radical change in the management of either road, but it is now understood that the iuterest of tiie New York Central will he the best sub served by retaining Mr. Tracy in the Presiden cy of the roads mentioned, and whoever may be elected to directory on Wednesday will not interfere with the management. THE BENDER MURDERS IN KANSAS. Confession and Suicide of an Accomplice.
