THE PRESS. TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 8, 1873. Ev :ky regular attache of the Press is furnished wit li a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pulton, Editor. All railway, steamboat ani bole managers will coufcr a favor upcu us by demanding ered-ntials of evcr^ierson claiming to represent onr jour.ial, as we have information that several bum mers” are seeking courtesies in the name c Press, and we have no disposition !o be, e>en 1 a « velv, a party to such fraud ^ \V u do norT^^TTetters and ocmimuni catlMs. The name and address of the writer are in all cases in Itepenaab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W. cannot undertake to return or reserve com munications that are not useo. Numbers versus Discipline. A velry serious difficulty, which the friends ot Judge Kent meet in presenting his name for the gubemato.ial candidacy, is Jhe feet . that there is no orginized interest back of him, no fund to pay ordinary and legitimate expenses of a canvass, and the Judge himself makes absolutely no effort in his own behalf and is not even in the State. The other can didates arc actively managing their own cam paigns and using all the usual appliances, which gives them a very great practical ad vantage. We c;dl attention to this phase ot the situation in no censorious spirit toward those gentlemen, neither of whom, we believe, would resort to any improper means for advancement. The go, . > iiarship is a laudable object, of am bition fur any citizen, and persona! exertions for its attainment are not proper subjects of advc-\-" ev'V’rism. ‘•Whatever is worth hav ing is worth trying for. ’ We speak of the matter in the way of suggestion to Judge Kent’s friends that individual effort is requir ea Oil inui j»an. iuc) uiuov au* m nit; premises without being requested. They must not wait to be drummed out to the cau cuses—there is no money to pay fer carriages to convey .them to the primaries nor to pay their expenses to Bangor. Those who have an interest in his nomination must act of their own motion without solicitation. His supporters are au unorganized mass— probably large enough to readily secure his nomination if their strength can be utilized, and it can be utilized only by the individual efforts of men who are not usually prominent in political primary meetings. Whether such efforts will be made is the prohlcm upon whose solution the result will depend. We must admit that such action would be phe nomenal but still it is not impossible. Occa sionally the rank and file of the party come to the fore and bring signal confusion upon the “little games” of the knowing ones. But those men, who say that they “want Kent for Governor”—that he is a “noble old Ho man”—that they “want a man free from rings, cliques and combinations’ ’ and a great many other very pretty things, must remem ber that their words will be but as sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal—vox et preterea nihil—unless they go to caucuses and secure the choice of Kent delegat ions. The Chinese go to battle with a prodigious beating of gongs but without the most improved styles of warlike implements,and invariably come to griet. We hope that Judge Kent’s friends will not emulate their mode of warfare. The following resolutions passed by farm ers’ conventions in Kansas are to the point if not polite. Their frankness is refreshing: Whereas. The Congress of the United States have perpetrated one of the most out rageous steals known to the civilized world, in the passage of the retroactive salary bill; and tVhcrcas, D. P. Lowe, our Congressman, supported the bill; Resolved, That we demand that he resign his seat in Congress,that his place may be fill ed by an honest man instead of a thief. Resolved, That no honest man should sup port any newspaper that does not write down such thieves. By farmers in Catroll County, 111. : Resolved, That the increase of Congres sional salaries, in these bard times, is an in fernal outrage upon the working people of the country. Resolved, That members of Congress, whether voting for or against said increase, who take said increase from the United States Treasury, are guilty and condemned beyond re-election. Governor IIowe of Nova Scotia, whose death has been announced, has for many years been a leading and influential man in Nova Scotia aud Dominion politics. He was born in Halifax and served an apprenticeship as a primer. He early and warmly espoused provincial reforms, and as an editor, was ar rested on a libel suit and thrown into jail. He defended his own case and was acquitted. In 1839 he was challenged to fight a duel by the son of the Chief Justice of the Province, when he reee'ved his adversary's fire and dis charged his pistol in the air. In 1840 he be came a member of the provincial cabinet since which time there is no responsible position that he has not filled. He has been one op the most earnest friends of railroad develop ment. All of Gov. Howe’s works bear the stamp of a statesmanlike grasp. He was un doubtedly one of the ablest of the Dominion leaders. A matron of Tippecanoe County Illinois, who bears the historic name of Smith has given birth to four small Smiths at once to the infinite delight and pride of all the deni zens of Tippecanoe county, except the pater nal Smith who cannot really, you know, be expected to look cheerfully upon this sudden wholesale supply of mouths. The ecstatic citizens have petitioned the United States government to present to the two elder Smiths and the four juvenile dittoes a quarter section of land each as a reward of merit and for encouragement to other Smiths. We ob ject. It is too mournful to contemplate the utter cessation of Smiths from the land, which would be likely o follow the desperate efforts to cmula’e the example of the Tippe canoe Smith. Gen.* Underwood, commander of the Grand Army of the Republic for Massachu setts, made an address Memorial day in New ton, of which he devoted a large part to a biographical notice of the soldiers whose graves were that day decorated, particularly of their military connection. In his order relative to Memorial day, he recommended the posts in Massachusetts to take measures to secure and in some way permanently pre serve a record of the service of each soldier buried within the towns in which the posts are located, with all others who went into the army from that locality and where they died. The suggestion is so fitting as to commend itself to all. i ul great public burden special legislation is becoming, may be faintly realized in the fact that the New York Legislature bad to consider 1800 bills and passed 1100, by far the greater part of wliich, were of a special and private character. The jobs, tricks and injustice such a mass of private legislation is sure to involve, the expense to the State in printing, engrossing and the time taken from important general interests by this legislation should make it one of the first evils in legisla tion to be corrected. TnE Boston Advertiser intimates that there wasn’t the necessary amount of strength and will displayed to check the last fire in that city. This is pretty severe and all the more so because it comes from a paper that is never hasty in its judgment. There is some enquiry here lor the valiant chief engi neer who ridiculed the extent of the Portland fire with the remark that it could have been put out in “two blocks in Boston.” The customs administration of France has just published the returns of the foreign trade for the first quarters of 1872 and 1873.

STATE VS. PECK AND BONDSMEN. Last week the law court at Augusta render ed a decisicu ou the long standing Peck bond case, giving a final judgment for the State. A brief resume of the various trials of this case may be of interest to the readers of the Press. The suit was first brought January 15th igfjl A year or two afterwards a trial was had be fore a jury, oa the following issue viz: Messrs. Fox and Rand, coun sel for the defendants, claimed that the bond sued did not have affixed to it any seals at the time it was signed. lion. John A. Peters, counsel for the State, avered that the hood was legally and properly sealed, and the jury so found. The defendants took exceptions and carried the ca.se to the law court, where the ex ceptions were overruled. The defendants .hen had, by agreement, leave to plead over, and m the April term of 1868, they pleaded that Peek had performed all the conditions of the bond. To this the State replied, that Peck had failed to fulfill all the conditions of the bond because be bail received $39,231.19 belonging to the State and had not paid the same over. To this the defendants demurred. Demurrer was then joined by the State and the case then went up to the law court where it was argued dnring the law term of 1870, at. Portlaud, by Hon. T. B. Reed, Attorney General for the State, and John Rand, Esq., for the defendants. The re sult of the arguments was that the court over ruled the demurrer. At the October term of 1871, when the case came to the NitiPrius Court, Judge Tapley presiding, Mr. Reed mov ed that judgment be given to the State for the sum of $39,231.19, with interest from the date of the writ. Judge Tapley ordered judgment for that amount, whereupon defendants took exceptions. At the following session of the Legislature, Messrs. Dow and Cummings, two of the bondsmen were released upon judgment of $5,020.11 each. v/a uie April 101 lowing, Mr Hand, counsel fov the defendants, filed a plea sioce the last continuance that the legislative discharge of Dow and Cummings operated as a discharge of the other bondsmen. Judge Barrows, before whom the case was then being argued, refused to receive this plea. To this refusal Mr. Rand took exceptions, and the case went up to the law court upon these exceptions and those of the preceding law term. At the July term of 1872, these exceptions were argued by Attorney General Reed for the State and by John Rand, Esq,, for the defendants. The final decision has now been reached in the decision of last week at Augusta, and a final judgment has been entered for the State in the sum of $39, 231.19, with interest from date of writ. VICTORY OF RAILROAD TICKETS In a suit brought by a lady against the Grand Trunk Railway, who purchased a ticket several years since, good from Portland to some point upon the road, Bethel or Paris, and stopped over a few days on the route, and was refused a passage on the ticket on the ground that it was good but for the day- it was dated, the court rules that a railroad ticket is good for six years in Maine, if not used before the expiration of that time. CUMBERLAND SUPERIOR COURT. By some blunder, the statute conferring criminal jurisdiction upon the Superior Court of Cumberland county was left out of the Re vised Statutes of lS7r,and was not discovered for some time. In the meantime a large number of indictments had been made, including that ofLoveitt for murder, and many liquor cases! The Legislature at the next session passed a healing act, hut the full bench decides that the indictments of that grand jury are null and orders that they be quashed. i lie Lxpionea seanaai. Tlie publication of Mr. Bowen’s full and cm phatic retraction of all charges and insinua tions against Henry Ward Beecher would seem to set a very disagreeable matter forever at rest. Whether Mr. Beecher acted wisely iu accepting the retraction, and forgiving a man who had most cruelly injured him, may bo a question, but it is one the public have nothing to do with. The retraction was made aud accepted, and, in compliance with our demand, has been given to the public. Here the matter ought to end. We regret that some of the journals of the city are not disposed to let this unfortunate matter sleep its last sleep in peace. They would have an investigation. They clamor for a suit at law. They would dig open a grave to feast their eyes upon its bones or scatter its ashes to the four winds. However such a course might gratify a prurient curiosity, it certainly could not promote ju tico or good taste or morals. The principals in this unfortunate affair have already paid a terrible penalty, aud must nec essarily suffer more. The sooner the matter is suffered to drop out of speech and out of mind, the better for all concerned. Mr. Beecher’s fame is the property of the nation, and nothing has come to public knowledge that tarnishes his brilliant reputation. The American people will give him their confidence, in spite of all calumnies and self-confessed calumniators, un til he is proved to be unworthy of it.—Graphic. It is not made plain, in the telegraph dis patch mentioning Mr. Moulton’s exposure of the Beecher-Tilton-Bowen document, whether Mr. Beecher is guilty of any or all of the charges preferred against him; but it is pretty well established that the charges were started by Boweu, and in denying that he had made a retraction of them he has been guilty of false hood. It is a fair supposition that if he would lie in the one case he would iu the other; and under this view of the case Mr. Beecher stands acquitted not only, but occupies a nobler posi tion before the public than ever before—the position of a man who chose to be the victim of evil report rather than break a covenant even with his maligners.—Rochester Democrat. Henry Ward Beecher on the Future State.—A New York despatch says that ou last Sunday, Henry Ward Beecher, in Ins ser mon, surprised some of liis hearers by espous ing Universalist doctrines. He chose for his text the words: “For the former things are passed away.”—Revelations 21:4. Mr. Beech er said: “la this world men experience sorrow aud. trial, their hopes arc disappointments, their aspirations failures; but there comes a world id the future iu which all this, the for mer thing* shall have passed away forever^ Did souls pass immediately into blessedness al ter they quitted this state, or did they lie. as he .Tews believed, iH a vast receptacle, await ng the last day? The New Testament was lot clear on the subject, but by implicatiou its caching, was that they rose at once into the Divine preserce. No allusion was made by t’aul to an interval, to a dormant state, aud yet lie made constant reference to the state after death. He never intimated that the soul took a sort of unconscious vacation, awaiting a gen eral ingathering to the spiritual sphere, nor did such an idea address itself to any human instinct which desired it to be true. Paul’s doctrine was. ‘Absent from the body present with the Lord—out of this into that!’ There was aspring of immediateism in his doctrine. If there was a great slumberous interval after death, why was there no hint of it in the word of God?” Mr, Beecher did not affirm with arrogant positiveness that this doctrine was true and none other, but he thought that Scripture war ranted the presumption that they had a right to believe so they may conceive, said Mr. Beecher, how ineu when they were not very fit for earth might nevertheless enter heaven, and heaven might develop what earth might never develop. One might conceive people here un fitted by force of animal passions for a spirit ual life, who nevertheless, when death took away what was their bane on earth might be gin a good life in a future state. Men whom society rejects now may get standing room in heaven, not high up, but a starting place. Social Gathering at Otisfleld. A native of Otisfleld living in Boston, has extended an invitation to all the inhabitants of that town and their descendants to meet in that town on Wednesday, August 20th, 1873, for the purpose of boldi ng a "religious and social gath ering, to renew olu acquaintances and forming new ones.” The meeting will be held on Meet ing House Hill. Those livin'; near will be ex pected to provide for themselves, while those at a distance will be cared for. Persons desir ousef accommodations, etc., should write to M. Hancock, Esq.,Chairman of the Committee ot Arrangements. The meeting is to be con ducted on the principles of “equality and uni versal brotherhood.’ A programme will bo is sued in due time. Those persons who may travel on the G. T. It. It., will center at Oxford stat'on, thence in nearly a due west course by stage, Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays, or private convey ai ce about six miles to the meeting. Those who may travel by the P. & O. It. R., from Portland will take the steamer at Sebago Lake and arrive at Harrison any day of the week (Sundays excepted) thence eastward six or seven miles to the meeting. Still another route from Portland by stage leading directly into Otisfleld Dear the center, Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays. For the Committee, Otis Feknai-d. Bolsters Mills, May 31, 1873. Washington Notes.—The steamer Frolic, which was dispatched to Nora Scotia for the survivors of the Polaris, is expected off our coast Tuesday next. It has not been generally known that the Frolic sailed under sealed orders. It is understood that the purport of those orders was that the Commander should not permit the survivors to have interviews with any persons not connected with (ho ser vice until they should have severally told their story to the Department. Secretary Robeson is determined, if possible, to solve the mystery connected with the death of Capt. Hall. Frederick Law Oln.stead has accepted the commission offered him by the Government to superintend the embellishment of tho Capitol grounds. 1 President* to savto!^ autborizeJ b.V the l resiuent to say that, be was not the guest of Senator Cameron in his recent visit to Harris burg, that the subject of a change in Federal officers was not then mentioned, aud that no change is at present contemplated. A Domestic Tragedy at Savannah, Ga. ■ East Vi eeiv Catherine Moyer o: Savannah, I Ga., who suspected her husband, E. D. Meyer, of being unfaithful, had her suspicions unmis takably Confirm'd. Slie at once denounced her husband in the most unmeasured terms, when Meyer, becoming exasperated, struck his a mo a severe Mow in the mouth, cutting it badly. A few minutes after, a son of the parties, August Meyer, aged about eighteen, entered, and see ing his mother’s mouth bleeding, reproached his father for his inhuman conduct, whereupon the latter grow v ry angry, and said, “I 11 kill vou both.” The words were no sooner uttered than young Meyer drew his pistol, and iired at his father twice, killing him instantly. He then delivered himself up to the police. A coroner’s jury returned a verdict that the de ceased had been killed by his soil, five of the Jurors adding a clause, “in self-defence.” Maine Wesleyan Seminary.—The cata logue of tlie Maine Wesleyan Seminary for the year ending June 3d snows that this well known school was never in a more flourishing condition than at present. The whole number ot students connected with the Seminary and Female College for the academical year is 694. The annual commencement exercises commence to-day (Tuesday) with a prize declamation and reading. Wednesday the exercises of the liter ary societies take place, President Alien of Orono, delivering the oration, and Rev. Mark Trafton of Boston, the poem. Wednesday evening a concert comes off in which Miss Ada Cary participates. Free return tickets will be furnished on the Maine Central. Woods on Fire.—The largo tract of wood land on Crooked River,about three miles above Edes’ Falls, was found to be oa fire Saturday. But little alarm was felt as it was thought that the fire could bo easily controlled. The winds of Sunday fanned the flames into a conflagra tion, and the result has been disastrous in the extreme, for about 1000 acres have been burnt over. It required the strenuous efforts of near ly 200 men to obtain a mastery over the flames. The loss is very heavy as the tract was the most valuable woodland in this part of the State. News and Other Items. Michigan will export over a million and a half tons of iron ore this summer. Gen. Grant’s father does not expect to live a month, and has sent for him. Ex-Senator Hale, of New Hampshire, will spend the summer at West Point. Gov. McEucry has issued an address (o the neoplo of Louisiana, advising acquiescence in the Kellogg government until Congress assem bles in December next. The Gardner News says a wreath was receiv ed in that town from Fitchburg, Decoration Day, for the grave of Lieut. Ebenezer Munroe, the first soldier that died in the Revolutionary war. A Liverpool woman who chopped her father and a pony has been seDt to jail three months for the assault on the horse and two months for that on the old man. Dogberry dispenses jus tice with curious discrimination. The Montreal Witness declares that that city is virtually ungoverned, the police force is greatly weakened,while the authorities through lack of energy and false economy refrain from improving it. As a natural result, crime is on the increase. The Vicksburg (Miss.) Times affirms that formidable attempts at organization of the State militia are being made, which are fraught with danger to the peace, prosperity and hap piness of the people It characterizes the war like aspect of the preparations as simple mad ness. The Iowa press excursion, which has become an annual institution, will not take place this year, owing to lack of dead-head tickets. They were not applied for, the papers doubtless feel ing that so long as they are making war on the railroads it would be impudent to ask for free tickets. The Chicago Times, not long ago the leading Democratic organ of the Northwest, says of that party that it is an “emaciated skeleton of an old party that is covered from head to foot with chronic sores, and distorted to the hide ous semblance of a Caliban by a political rheumatism.” Vanderbilt’s donation of half a million to the Sonthern University does not please his fami ly. They think it is too much money to send down South, and that the Commodore would have done better for his own fame, and better for the cause of education, to have founded a university in Now York, where he made his money, and to which he owes so much. In a letter to the Springfield Republican, Eli znr Wright proposes that there shall be a re vised common school edition of the Bible, from which edition everything shall be left out to which a good citizen of any or no religious creed could object. Just snob an edition was prepar ed by Mrs. Sarah Josepha Hale, and published by Messrs Lippincott, Grarnbo & Co., Philadel phia, in 1852. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. P. S.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of l 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-tlihds 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 beichiug of wind. These symp toms usually originate irom 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 bo suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs ore 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 dies v the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto acli, digests easily, nourishes the system, and creat a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient i3 a billious habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. IT.
