Soi'TH Windham, May 31, 1873. Our village was visited by burglars on Tbus da> evening and the store of W. & W. H. Bacon & Co. robbed of several huudred dollars worth of property. The carriage shop of-E. T. Smith was first visited, whore tools were pro" cured by which the store was broken. It is thought the thieves will be caught. The firm have recently opened a shop for the manufac ture of sale work injthis village, having lit'ed up one of the best shops in the county, and are doing a large business, the best of work, and are a reliable strong firm. No prospect of improvement of onr Water power this season. Politics arj dull—Gubernatorial question somewhat discussed; mostly inclined to Kent but some Stone laborers. Saji. It was a package of black crape, not lace, that was picked up near the Phess office Sat urday. The concert of the Musical Club, which was announced for Thursday night, June 5th, will be given to-morrow Dight instead. It will be a delightful affair. Frank Hurd got his hand jammed while shackling cars on the Portland and Rochester railroad, Saturday. There were 32 intensions of marriuge and 55 deaths recorded at the City Clerk’s office during the month of May. The 6.30 p. m. freight train on the Boston & Maine yesterday, comprised 31 “long” freight cars. The Maine Wharf and Portland Pier Co.’s hold adjourned annual meetings to-morrow. Rev. Mr. Hincks, of State street church, commences a four week’s vacation to-day. BDeering boys amuse themselves by playing “Injun” and shooting at yju from behind fences as you ride by. The result is a large in crease in (he number of life insurance policies taken out by those of our citizens who have occasion to drive in the suburbs. Tho members of Braraball Lodge, K. P. are to meet at Pytbian Hall at two o’olock this af ternoon, for the purpose of attending the fun eral of their iat brother, Granville Bacheldtr. Members of Munjov Lodge are requested to at tend. On the 16th of May 1786, a writ was served against Moses Parker of Standish, for the non payment of six gallons of rum, which he owed to Jeremiab Burnam, of a place called Bridg ton. So says a time-stained document which came into our possession yesterday. Yesterday people began to recall the tradi tions of tlieir childhood that we live in tbs Temperate Zone, “shielded on the. one hand from the vertical rays of a torrid sun. and on the other from the chilling blasts of the north ern ice-fields.” That was about the way tho old geography’s put it. Members of Maine Lodge. I. O, O. F,. are referred to the special notice column. Articles to be contributed through the First Baptist Society to the Hospital Fair, may be left at 169 Cumberland street. The steamer Express, Capt, Oliver,which has become a regular boat to Peak’s Island, is now undergoing thorough repairs for the summer season. Capt. B. W. Jones has put bis yacht Clarence on tho route i.i the interim, and by it a very pleasant sail may be taken to Peak’s Island with the Harbor Master himself as pi lot. About four weeks since an intelligent dog followed tho Bridgton stage to this city, and since his arrival has taken to the two lines of horse cars, following tho Spring street line in the forenoon and the Congress street in the afternoon. Last evening, a short time before the Boston boat left the wharf, one of those men who al ways succeed in making themselves disagree able, began promiscuous abuse of the persons congregated at the landing. Thereupon one of of the crowd bestowed a sound and well-merit ed kicking npon him. The “ICickee” was tak en into the boat just in time to save him from a terrible beating. There were five drunks at the police station last night. Deputy Williams found a woman on the streets last night who was evidently deranged. Wha she was and what’s her name she didna care to tell. Forest City Park.—As will be seen by the advertisement in another column the trotting to take place at Forest City Park on the 10th, lltb, 12th, 13th and 14th of June is expected to surpass any of the June meetings that have ever been holden. The premiums offered, amounting to $2500, are larger in amount than ever yet announced in this city. The number of entries already is 57, and the tale is not yet complete. The show of horses promises to bo a fine one, and the trotting cannot but be ex cellent. The Maine General Hospital manag ers offer a gold mounted harness and a Martin Pennell wagou, valued at $350, as premiums. On that day the gate money will he turned over to the Hospital fund The Weather in May.—The monthly re port of Mr. Williams, the signal service obser ver at Portland, shows an average temperature In May of 52.24°. The lowest temperature was on the 8d, 34°; the highest on the 24th, 75°. The highest barometrical pressure was record ed on the 8th, and the lowest on the 13th. There have been 10 cloudy d ys and 8 rainy days, with a total raiufall of 2.08 inches. The mean temperature aud pressure have been about the same as in May, 1872; the rainfalls a little less. The prevailing wind has been southwest and the maxium velocity 24 miles an hour.__ Novel Entertainment.—An amusing and novel entertainment was given at Army and Navy Union Hall last evening by Prof. Stearns, the celebrated Psychologist. His de monstrations are all that he advertises them to be, and every one that can spend an evening at one of his entertainments and not have sore sides is to be pitied. His entertainment is simi lar to that given by Prof. Stone at Fluent Hall some time ago. No one can find a pleasanter place to spend au evening than to listen to the Professor. He gives two more entertainments, one to-night and to-morrow evening. The Battle op Newbern.—1The G. A. it. Dramatic Club is doing its best to present, as heretofore, an entertainment worthy of the patrouage of our citizens, and we hope to see Music Hall crowded at each representation. The reserved seats will be for sale at Stock bridge’s music store, 158 Exchange street, at 10 o’clock this morning. Our advice is to go a ujl secure seats early to avoid the crowd. City Affairs. The regular monthly meeting of the Board of Mayor and Alderman was held last evening.— Also a special meeting of the Cotmnou Coun cil. IN BOARD Or MAYOR AND ALDERMEN. The Cammittee on Streets Sidewalks and Bridges reported favorably 'Ui the proposition from the United States government to bear part of the expense of paving the streets fronting the Custom House, with blocks of stone, and those on which the post office fronts with wood, and passed the orders given elsewhere. . .

Paine, the distinguished'au thor of “St. Peter,” was also named John K., and was born in Standish, Me., and lived there for about forty years. His musical talents had obtained at that time a wide celebrity, and he wa3 visited by a delegation of Portland citizens who induced him to remove to this city. Soon after taking up bis residence here he entered into the manufacture of organs, aud organized the Portland Band, which has continued in ex istence to this day. Several of the sons of Joliu K. Senior were members of this band, one of whom. Jacob S., was the father of the compos er of the Oratorio “St. Peter.” The John K. ! Senior was a musical celebrity in every sense of the word. Iti fact, in early life his penchant for the organ aud musical organizations had so strong a hold on the unknown and untaught young man that he, living in the dense woods of Standish. two miles from any other resi dence, conceived the idea of building an organ for his own gratification. An attempt at any thing in the musical lino was with him a sure forerunner of success. He at once made ar rangements to be absent a week, which time he spent in this city (Portland), iu exploring the interior of the organ in the old St. Paul’s church. At the conclusion of that time he re turned to his home in Standish and commenc ed on bis house, alone, with the simple aid of a saw aud jack-knife, the manufacture of an or gan with two stops. The organ rose in propor tions as week after week passed by, reaching to the wall, and still not completed. The timbers of the house were obliged to be cut down aud the organ was at last completed, and Paine then reaped the reward of his labors. It is but a year .or two since that we, in company with the composer of this oratorio, stood with un covered head within this ancient building and gazed with reverence on these living memen toes of this mau’s inventive genius and perse verence. Thus has the musical mantle truly been transmitted through two generations and has fallen with superior grace upon the shoul ders of one who nobly sustains the high talent aud rare genius of his worthy grandfather. “The first Paine organ” was soon purchased by the old church iu Limingtou, and remained in good service for forty years without any im provements being made, and is still in existence * there at this day. ITSzlinc General Hospital Fair. BEQULATIONS. The following general rules have been adopt ed for the government of the refreshment de partment during the Fair: 1st.—Ail articles contributed, become tho property of the Fair, and are not to be wi:h dr.twn without the consent of the Ladies’ Ex ecutive Committee. 2d.—The Department will he under the charge of a coumittce of three, selected from the La dies’ Executive Committee tor that purpose. 3d.—It will be the duty of this committee to provide suitable facilities for special work of the Parish Committees, to affix prices'to arti cles sent in. and to settle all questions which may he referred to them. 4th.—Tea, coffee, butter, milk, strawberries and ice cream, dishes and a portion of the labor will lie provided by the Ladies’ Executive Com mittee. oth.—It is expected that the Parish Commit tees will solicit from their respective societies all kinds of refreshments not provided by the Ladies’Executive Committee; they will also take the entire charge of the tables ou their re spective days, will provide ail assistant corps of ladies whose duty it will be to take charge of table of supplies, and a number of young ladies who will wait upon the tables. Societies are also earnestly requested to send in floral decorations for their respective days. 6tb.—The fiuancial arrangement of the de partment will be under the charge of a treas urer, cashiers aid assistant cashiers. Miss Au ua Evans will act as treasurer and her assist ants will be selected by her and the Ladies' Executive Committee, aud will serve during the Fair. 7th.—In consequence of magnitude of the Fair, thereby necessitating help from so many people, it will be impossible for any person in any way connected with the Fair, to be provid cd with free lunches. A room has been provid ed, pleasant and accessible where ladies can if they choose, make little lunch parties of their own. 1 Stb -It is requested that all contributions to the Refreshment Department shall b ■ sent to Fluent Hall each day by ;> o’clock a m Mbs. 8am’l Small, i Mrs. 8. K Lymas, > Committee. Mrs. C. H. Burb, ) Larcenies.—Yesterday morning deputies Williams and Bridges arrested William Hinck ley alias Melville Kenniston at the house of Michael Crowley in Cape Elizabeth, for the larceny of two coats, one from the house of a Mr. Keardou aud one from Woodbury’s stable iu this city. The deputies captured the man in his little bed. He hails from Bridgton, and seems to be a man who has a great aversion to sunlight, he having passed most of his life in prison. „ Last evening about flo’clock a man entered the store of Howe, Hilton & Tarbox, 103 Com mercial street, and stole therefrom a 00 pound chest of tea while the men were handling flour in the rear of the shop. Chase was given To him and the tea was dropped. Shortly afterwards Deputy Williams and officer Hanson arrested him after a fierce struggle on his part. He gave his name as John Rand, and said he was from Hartford, Ct. He claims to be a fore mnner of Karnum. The Gbeelv Hospital.—As the small pox campaign of last winter and spring, has *>een triumphantly fought out to a successful co. a brief review of the labors of the Board of Health during that fearful epidemic may no. now'to out of place. We cannot forget the fright occasioned by the breaking on of this malignant disease in the early part of last win ter, not only in this city, but in Boston and other places. At first the former hospital on the city grounds built for the e3. ccial purpose, was used, but by reason of its comparitively small size and inad equate heating apparatus had to bo given up. On the first of January, the Greeiy Hospital— named in honor of the late Eliphalet Greeiy, Mayor of the city, during whose administration it was built, was put into excellent condition by the citv government, and placed under the general medical charge of Dr.B. B. Foster, City Physician, with Dr. A. W, Larrabee as resi dent physician and general superintendent. The number of cases treated have been sixty eight and the last patient was “discharged cur ed” a short time since. ^vs uim iii* a leariui epiueuiiu, reyviio will almost inevitably arise unfavorable to Hos pital management; we liave taken the paius to make a personal examination of the Greel.v Hospital and to institute some inquiries rela tive to the treatment there received; and the result has been to demonstrate that the best medical care has been imparted to the inmates. A full record of tile cases treated, with every ueeded remirk to explain them was kept. Those who died (the number was comparitively small), were properly interred in the cemetery near the Hospital, aud each grave is suitably marked aud numbered, so that the remains of any particular person can be readily ascertain ed. The furniture in one room, which belong ed to the late Father De Bose, was a sad re minder of his self-sacrificing spirit in adminis tering the consolations of religion to the dying, from which lie contracted his fatal disease. Many are not. aware either, that “the Black Maria” is really a very convenient carriage well fitted up with a comfortable brd, and that pa tients removed in it were even provided with hot rocks aud other means of protection from the cold. The city has been very liberal too in providing every needed form of help aud com fort. Good nurses of both sexes were employ ed, and a uniform degree of heat was regulated by the fireman and watchers. Too much credit can hardly be awarded to Drs. Foster and Lar rabee for their onerous labors which have been performed promptly and with great faithful ness. The work for the present is over, and j the hospital was yesterday closed, it is hoped not to ba re-opened for the reception of patients with the small p >x for some time to come. JlArNE Hospital Fair.—The Executive Committee acknowledge the donation of addi tional articles and money in aid of the Maiue General Hospital Fair, from the following named parties: Kennebec Journal, Sprague, Owen & Nash, Augusta, advertising.

Sherwood & Co., Lowell, Mass., two cases corrugated wire goods, $100 Charles H. Haskell, Treasurer. St . Peter.—The first orchestral rehearsal of St. Peter took place at City Hall last evening, under the direction of Mr. Paine, and was a most marked and triumphant success. About twelve of the orchestra were present. The complete harmony of the orchestra and the chorus was remarkable, taking into considera tion the fact that it was their first rehearsal. Many of the most difficult of the choruses were rendered with a power, skill and spirit that was very pleasant to Mr. Paine. Among the spectators we noticed Mr. Henry S. Ed wards, go long organist at High street church, who has come on from Natick to be present at the production of the oratorio. Mr. Osgood arrived last evening, and Miss Phillips and Mr. Rudolphsen will arrive this morning. Large numbers of musical people are expected from New York, Bostou and other places. A final rehearsal takes place at City Hall this after noon. The seats are nearly all sold, and those who arc desirous (and who of us are not?) to bear this magnificent production of Mr. Paine’s genius, must secure their seats at once. It is evident that this greatest musical event in the history of Portland will fill City Hall with the largest and most select audience ever as sembled within its walls. Convention Transportation. The Portland & Ogdensburg and Portland & Rochester railroads will take delegates to the Bangor Convention and return for one fare. Delegates will pay full fare at the station wuero they take the train and be furnished with re turn certificates on application at Bangor to Z. A. Smith, Secretary of the State Committee. 'The Maine State Year Book for 1873-4, pre pared by Edmund S. Hoyt, and just issued by Hoyt & Fogg, will be found a valuable refer ence book and political manual, contain ng, as it does, all the latest statistical matter of State and National importance, as well as important information to public and business men. It is gotten up in the usual neat and convenient style, and is fuller even than usual.

Henry Ward Beecher to-day issues the following card to a Brooklyn paper: Dear Sir:—I have maintained silence respect ing the slanders which have for some time past followed me. I shall not speak now, but for the sake of relieving another of unjust imputa tion. The document which was reeeutly published, was witnout consultation either with me or with Mr. Tilton, nor with any authoriza tion from us. If that document should lead the public to regard Mr. Tilton as the author of the calumnies to which it alludes, it will do him great injury. I" am unwilling that he should even se -in to be responsible forinjurious statements whose force was derived wholly from others. (Sigued,) Henry Ward Beecher. Various matters. The Health Board to-day ordered a disinfec tion of the streets, gutters, &c. Clerks in the custom house having sold their salaries in advance to a brokcraud not paying him when due, he sued them. Judge Quinn dee.ided that the broker could not recover, as public officers violate public policy bv such a course. WASHINGTON. Tax on Banks, Washington, June 2.—The impression seems to prevail among certain collectors of internal revenue, that the Act of Deeembor 21, 1872 which requires persons enraged in hauking to make returns to internal revenue officers of their capital, circulation and deposits semi-an nually instead of monthly as heretofore extends to National Banks, and in some instances Na tional Banks have been required to make such returns to internal revenue officers. This is in correct. The law question extends only to pri vate and State bankers. The duty on capital, circulation and deposits of National Ranks is payable to tlia Treasurer of the United States ui the same manner as leretofore. Appointments. The President has appointed John A. Bing ham. of Ohio, Envoy Extraordinary, and Min ister Plenipotentiary of United States to Japan. His commission was signed this afternoon. He lias also appointed Louis E. Orapsey, Consul at Chemuitz, and Wm. H. Short, Consul at Car diff. Notice to mariners.

Little Rock, June 2.—In the Supreme Court to-day the Attorney General tiled an ap plication for a writ of quo warrauto, against Gov. Baxter, to show by wliat authority he holds the office of Governor. The application set3 forth that tho Governor has unlawfully usurped the office. Although Gov. Baxter re fuses to recognize the right sf the Court to hear such an application and has announced that he will obey no mandate issued by it on such an application, and has refused to em ploy counsel to conduct the case, Judges English aud Camp ton, both eminent attomies, appeared iu court and opposed the filing of the application. The argument on this point has been going on all the evening and will be contiuued to morrow. The filing of this application by the Attorney General has renewed tbe'excitemcnt of a few days ago, when it was rumored such action was to be taken. Should the writ be granted it is thought a conflict will ensm . Tlia Governor holds that the Legislature adjudicated the mat ter aud that was the ouly power that could do so. The militia are being reorganized by Governor Baxter. Horrible IHurder.

—A series of prolonged yells and cheers arous ed this camp from a pleasant ciesta half an hourafter the departure of my last courier._ Gens. Davis and Wheaton-nnd the other offi cers and all men rushed from the house and tents to find the cause of the uproar, and at once the whole camp was in commotion. Down the level plain north of the house tvas a grand cavalcade of mounted horsemen. The studs rushed forward at once at a furious rate and soon neared the groups of spectators scattered about the premises. “Capt. Jack is captured” shouted a sturdy sergeant. Again the valley echoed with cheers and yells. The mounted command was that of Perry. He had returned from a scout of twenty-three hours, three miles above the month of Willow Creek. At half past 10 o’clock t is morning the Warm Spring scouts struck a trail, and after a brief search the Modocs were discovered. Col. Perry surrounded the Indian retreat.- His men were bound to fight. Suddenly a Modoc shot out from the rocks with a white flag. He met a Warm Spring and said Capt. Jack wanted to surrender. Three scouts were sent to meet Capt. Jack. He came out cautiously, glanced about him a moment, and then, as giving un an nopes, came forward and held out his hand to his visitors. Then two of his warriors, five squaws aud seven children darted for'h and joined him in the surrender. The command that made this farnour scout was the squadron of the 1st cavalry, Col. D. Perry, composed of troop F, Lieut Moller, and troop H, Major Trumbull and medical officer assistant surgeon Dewitt. 'J he guides were C. Pullman aud H. A. Applegate. Capt. Jack is about 40 years old, five feet eight inches hi h and compactly built He has a large and well formed face full of individual ity. Although dressed in old clothes he looks every inch a chief. The Modocs are grouped in a field near the house and are surrounded by a guard. Spectators peer into Capt. Jack’s face with eager interest, but ho heeds them not.— He is still as a statue.
