Parties from this city are building a new steamer at Upton, which will be ready to run on the lake in c few weeks. Capt. Robinson and Lieuts. Colcord and Eat on of the Portland Cadets, have resigned their commissions, the resignations to take effect on the 5th of Jnly. Business engagements are as signed as the cause. The Kiarsarge House will be opened for sum mer travel next Monday. The G. A.

There is no doubt but that with the excellent stage, new properties, &c., the G. A. R. will on Thursday ana l'riuay evenings give me nest entertainment ever presented by them.

Officer Stevens arrested a boy on Poplar street yesterday for breaking windows with stones. Fire Last Night.—The alarm of tire at half-past ten o’clock last evening, from box 04, was caused by fire being discovered in the Iron Foundry at No. 100 Green Btreet, owned by Beddy & Kelly. Wheti first discovered it was well underway, and although two good streams were put into it at once from a hydrant on the premises, it did not abate until the whole de partment got to work on it. They were very prompt and a stream was on from one or two steamers in less than five minutes after the alarm was given. Tho building was destroyed and all its contents, consisting of some va ua ble machinery and many choice patterns valued at $3000. The proprietors loss is about $4500. The building was insured at the agency of Lur ing & Thurston for $1500. The machinery i at torns were not iusured. A great amount of water was thrown upon the burning building, and our reporter can testify that some that was thrown was wet Tl,e first alarm was given by the whistle on Bicker’s Tannery, and the first stream was thrown from hose belonging to that tannery.._ A la New York—Yesterday morning, while Mr. Small, the cashier of the Cumber land Bank, was standing alone at his desk, a well dressed looking man entered and pro luc ing a package of bills of a small denomination, said he wished to make a deposit. While he was engaging tl c attention of Mr. Small, a confederate began making his way toward the safe and had nearly arrived there when the cashier heard a noise, and looking up, asked him what he wanted. At this moment a whistle undoubtedly from a_ third confederate, was heard at the entrance to the building, and the two men hastened to the door and mad< their escape. The signal wai probably givet because of the entrance of the e'erk. It is ev i8ent that a plan was on foot to rob the haul by some of the gang of rascals who now iufes our city._ iv ci>k cak,— iuc* urnb car uum. uy iuc j ten Car Manufactory at Bath, was passed over the Maine Central road a few days since by Conductor Chandler.

Taken altogether the car is one of the finest ever put upon this road. Three others of simi lar pattern are designed to lie run between Ban gor and Boston. _ IjrTKttNANO.NAI. TELEGRAPH COMPANY.— The. animal meeting of the International Tele graph Com (Any was held at the First National Bank yesterday. The following gentlemen »«» elected directors for the ensuing year: R. M PoUifer, Boston; Frank ./ones, Portsmouth; * *” Mersey, Bangor; William McOilvery, ■’•*■**A l> Brown, Portland; W. E. C-e.^l, Pont*o4 and T. T. Know, Portland. At * *vv*w> no ting 'it the director* Hon. B. I* Hkiu j »« * i" O'l President and A. It. «*•/**, '»****.,s*r so/1 <:ierk Pnine’s St. Peter. The oratorio performance of last eveaiug was a brilliant, important and entire success, which will greatly increase tho musical reputa tion of our city. As yet, America is too newly organized a country—too much occupied with the severer problems of existence, the develop ment of its immense resources—to have attain ed a general high culture in art; aud particu larly in music, which in the world’s hisiory has ever been a later result of civilization, than painting or sculpture. It is ouly within a few years that music has been recognized here m its higher significance, and the great an "" mortal works of the masters listeue to ''1 ever-increasing enjoyment ana _ Nothing could more distinctly indicate the rent progress made, than the successful attempt by a native composer in the high aud austere department of the oratorio; and its intelligent and adequate performance and cordial recep tion iu his native city. Without the aids, ad ventitious and distracting, of scenery, costumes and theatrical situations; without the excite ment of powerfully portrayed human passion, an oratorio ma t depend wholly upon its merits of sincere thought and feeling, expressed by means of appropriate and learned musical forms of writing. In this, we do not hesitate to say that Mr. Paine has succeeded in his ora torio, “St. Peter.” The overture would seem to express the mighty unfor-.ed longing of the people, led by a prescient instinct to look for a diviner and clearer knowledge. Beginning with an adagio movement in B b (minor, the melody—of which the accentuation is most expressive—soon be comes more agitated. A powerful motif in the bass, emphasizes tho reiterated questioning. Like a prophecy of coming good, as yet un known, is the brief cantilena of the wind instru ments, reenguized by the eager upward rush of the strings, until the repeated dominant of C, commented upon by an earnest bass subject, is at last accepted as the long sought solution, and leads into the powerful and stirring cho rus. expectant of triumph, “The time is fulfill ed.” The second theme of this number, ‘ re pent and believe,” is exceedingly well writtcu; the striking intervals to which is set the word ‘Repent,” contrasting with tho elaborate fig uresof the words,“and believe the glad tidings.” This first chorus would alone be enough to prove that the composer was familiar with tho traditions of the great contrapuntists, and knew how to adapt his resources to the just expression of his ideas. The important aria for soprano, “The spirit of the Lord,” is admirable aud ex pressive. The representation of the twelve dis ciples by individual singers, instead of the voi ces of the whole chorus, forms a very dramatic feature of the work. The first chorus for these twelve voices, tenori and bassi divided, begins alVunisono, with a melodious and clearly defin ed theme,“We go before the face of the Lord.” At the words “By the remission of their sins,” the voices separate iu skillfully written four part harmony, to winch is soon added the mix ed chorus. After a lovely chorale—of which the harmoaic progressions and instrumentation given to it by Mr, Paine, are well fitted to the grand simplicity of its melody—a brief phrase of soprano recitative precedes the question“Wbo do men say that I am?” answered oy a very expressive and original passage for tho disci ples, and by the emphatic phrases of Peter. After a uoble tenor urioso, occurs the grand aria for bass, “My heart is glad,” a song of re joicing and hopeful strength. “The church is built,” is a very solidly writteu chorus in two well-contrasted movements, in which, as in many other numbers, the composer displays great command of tho resources ot his art. This exalted and powerful number closes the first scene of the sacred drama. A soprano recitative begins the scene upon tho Meant of Olives, and is followed by a most expressive arioso for the tenor. The recitative “Before the cock crow,” is answered by Pe ter’s confident words, repeated a fourth higher, with increased emphasis by the disciples. Tho lovely aria for tenor, “Lst not your heart,” is cxquistely tender and peaceful. The beau tiful quartet and chorus “Sanctify us,’’seems to us, rather writteu upon the models afforded by Mozart, in his masses, than upon the sever er types of sacred music; aud is a very attract ive number of the work. A contralto recita tive uarrates the coming of Judas with the mul titude, and the desertion of the disciples. In the succeeding chorus, “We bid our faces from him,” the composer has arrived at a most pathetic expression of a world’s woe and con trition. Tbe accompaniment to the seco'd theme, “He was broughtjas'a lamb.”is noticea ble for the masterly management of counter point, and its original and admirable harmo nies. Next follows the highly dramatic scene where Peter denies his Lord. Tbe orchestra tion of this passage is exceedingly vivid. After the lamenting interlude which depicts the re morse and despair of Peter, comes the repent ant pleading aria “O God! my God, forsake me not.” To this succeeds a solemu and beau tiful chorus of angels—soprani and contrulti divided thus complementing the similar chorus of bassi and tenori. The notes of the harp alone accompany tiie voices, until the entrance of the vigorous and cheering allegro theme for full chorus, “And he that overcometh.” A seri ous and expressive contralto aria “The Lord is faithful and righteous,” precedes the chorus ixwaue tnou tuat steepest. wmcn is very pow erfully written, including fine fugue passages. With this climax the first part of the oratorio closes. The Asceusion forms the subject of the sec ond part, which begins with the chorus “The Son of Man;” telling the story of the crucifix ion. Nothing more profoundly pathetic, more simply touching in its utter grief, can be imag ined than its opening phrases. It recalled to us the tender heartfelt strains full of love and sorrow, with which Bach iu his marvellous “Passion Music,” mourns for the dead Saviour, as for one to whose life and sufferings he had j been an eye-witness. After the first mournful i phrases, alV unisono in F minor, closing on the dominant chord of which the fifth only is taken b\ the voices, giving an indescribable effect of vague fear and wonder, to which no solution presents itself—for the brass instruments is scor ed a finely mauaged and strongly accented suc cession of harmonies, while the voices narrate the crucifixion. Like a burst of suu’ight, comes the chorus "And on the third day,” in the key of F major, and to which the prominence of the chord of C imparts peculiar vigor and brightness. Another chorale expressive of trust and hope, is followed by a beautiful scene for tenor and bass, of which the recitatives and ariosi are full of life and expression ; a sopra no recitative and the chorus “If ye tbcu be risen,” somewhat in- the modern style of writ ing, and exceedingly spontaneous and tuneful. After a contralto recitative and an impressive aud majestic soprauo aria, “O man of God,” the scene of the Ascension closes wi h a beauti ful quartet, “Feed the flock of God.” The tenor recitative relating the miracle of the Pentecost, is remarkable for its vividly de scriptive orchestral accompaniment. To this succeeds the chorus “The Voice of the Lord.” The theme is admirably indicated, and this number seems to us among the finest and most original of the work. The wondering chorus, “Behold!are not all these Galileans?’, precedes a soprano recitative, and an aria for Peter, of the highest dramatic interest both in its vocal and orchestral parts. To this is contrasted the sombre, meditative aria for contralto “As for Man” which is written in a large and noble manner, with a very beautiful accompaniment. To the agitated and intense questioning of the people “What shall we do to he saved,” Peter and the disciples reply by a singularly lovely melody “For the promise.” A tenor recitative introduces the important chorus, “This is the witness of God.” This number is very skillfully’ written, al though in the second part there seems an occa sional want of clearness, and tho harmonic treatment appears a little iusolved and over elaborated. Another chorale, very effective in orchestration, precedes a short recitative for soprano, and the aria of Peter with chorus, Now as ye were redeemed.” Next comes a fine duet for soprano and tenor, introducin'* the magnificent final chorus, “Great aud marvel lous,” which iu its massive harmonies, grand proportions and emotional power forms a fit ting termination to the oratorio. We have not space to particularize the mauy points of skillful instrumentation, fortunate melodic and harmonic traits, and contrapuntal elaborations which so richly deserve especial praise. The smgers, soloists and chorus were admira ble in their several departments. Mrs. Weth erbee’s clear and powerful soprano, was of course, very effective in the recitatives and aria allotted to her, as also in the concerted music. Her smooth caataibilc was displayed in the aria “The Spirit of the Lord,” and in the noble song “0,man of God”—which in its earnest, natural aud original melody, and interesting accompan iment, indicates tho wholesome inJLomCe of Mr- Paine’s faithful aud loviugon*"^ of Bach’s works—Mrs. WetherhecV rrtlre* vigorous style and firm sosteaiM-r rul1 *C0Pe Ml»» A’tel aide Phillips’ rich, deep contralto, and lino dramatic power, gave great interest and life to the music of her part. In the air ‘‘The Lord is faithful,” the velvety tones and smooth phrasing of the artiste pave gieat pleas ure to the audience, and tho solemn p irases o ‘‘As for man,” seemed even more ailap ed to display the rich resources at lier command. Mr Osgood’s task was an exceedingly ardu ous one, and he acquitted himself; singing the beautiful music of his part with much expres sion, and in an unaffected and manly style, evincing sincere study and appreciation of his part. A slight inequality of tone was at times noticeable, but wan by no means enough to ma I terially mar the effect of_liis generally fine per formance. Mr. Rudolphsen, to whom was intrusted the role of I’eter, sang with power and dignity, en tering into his part with appreciative fervor. The high tones of his voice were very effective, and his rendition throughout very satisfactory. The air“Ye men of Judea,’’gave him au oppor tunity for fine effect, which he improved. The chorus, sang with the greatest spirit and expression,a.id showed the good effects of care ful, conscientious study, and individual enthu siasm aad intelligence. The beauty of tone at tained by the Haydn Association is very re markable,and their shading is exceedingly lino. They have arrived to tjjo mastery of the pianis simo, and chorus singers and conductors need not be told how much praise that implies. The orchestra was hardly sufficiently familiar with some parts of the very difficult score; hut on the whole,did well. The harp passages wci« admirably represented on the piano-forte, by Mrs. Gosse, the pianiste of the Haydn Associa tion. The presence of Mr. Paine, who conducted this first performance of his oratorio, was in spiring to the forces under his baton, and tho audience gave him a cordial and enthusiastic reception. Cumcvrlaail County Eioilgc I. O. of CS. T. Cumberland County Lodge, I. O. of G. T., began its quarterly sessi ui at Morrill’s Corner, Deering, yesterday morning. The Lodge was called together by A.

The County Templar then made a report of the condition of the Order in this county, which is about the same as at the last session. He recommended measures to be taken to start new lodges and build up and help sustain those that are in a low condition, and invited every member of this County Lodge to institute a Lodge wherever one could be sustained. The next resolution was then taken up: Resolved, That we have more discussion on the cause of temperance in the lodge rooms. After some discussion it was passed.

The entertainment con sisted of music, dialogues, recitations, &e., and considering the sparsely populated district iu which she lives and the little aid she received from a few Sabbath School children, her suc cess and spirit are worthy of all praise. Some fifteen or twenty dollars were realized for the object The name of this enterprising young lady is Miss Etta Haley. Let Miss Haley’s ex ample inspire other young ladies to like efforts for the Hospital. L. C. Psychologf.—Professor Stearns gave anoth er very interesting entertainment at Army and Xavv Union Hall last evening to a fair sized audience.

Atfi.43 this morning, Frank H. Walworth, aged 19 years, shot aud killed his father, Mans field >' Walworth, in the Sturtevunt House in this city. Tho deceased was a soil of the late Chancellor Walworth, one of the most d stin guisbed citizens of the State. The Chancellor died in 181)7, at the age of 80. The family has been largely identified witli the most prominent interests in the State—in the judiciary, in the church aud in education and literature, aud they have a wide and influ ential acquaintanceship. Mr. Walworth was born in Albany in 1830, and consequently was in the 43d year of his age. He was educated for the legal profession, and after being admit ted to the bar. assisted his father for a short time in his office at Albany, hut the profession becoming distasteful, he soon turned his atten tion to literature. Mr.Walworth married some years ago, and the result of that uuiou is two daughters between 13 and 14 years of age, and the son hv whom he lost liis life this morning. He has been separated from his wife some years, and that lady is now keeping an excel lent seminary for young ladies on the estate of the late Chancellor Walworth at Saratoga Springs, where she is living in elegant style. Mr. Walworth’s contributions to the literature of the day are embodied in five novels “Hot spur,” “Lulu,” “Warwick.” “Delphaine,” and “Beverly.” He was at the time of his death writing a serial for a popular weekly, aud a publishing nr.n has a new novel in press A special despatch from Sarotoga to the Ex press, says: rhe announcement of the shooi, nig of Mansfield G. Walworth, by his son blank, causes grew excitement. Great sympa thy is ielt here for Mrs Walworth who has been greatly wronged by her husband. Not satisfied with publishing a novel in which he claimed to have portrayed himself and wife, slandering her, he has been writing letters of a vile character to her. Some of these letters came to theihands of her son,who left here sud denly lust evening,without notice to his mother The son has always maintained a high reputa tion here. At the Sturtcvant House, the room in which the shooting occurred, No. 267, is on what is called the second floor. It is a small apartment neatly furnished. The furniture consists of a bed, washstand, couple chairs and a table. On the hanging rack was a black stove pipe hat with mourning band, which was worn by the murdered man. and was found lyiug on the floor when the room was entered after the shooting. The marble top of the washstand was covered with clotted blood. A towel soaked in blood was on the floor at the foot of the bed, near the washstand,aud there was a great stain on the carpet. The murdered man was found lying on the floor at the foot of the bed, one arm bent underneath his head and presented a ghastly spectacle. Mr. Leland, proprietor of the hotel, states: “At about half-past six o’clock, the watchman cante to my room and said a man had been shot in room 267. 1 asked if he was dead. He said no; he was still breathing. J told him to send for Drs. Childs and Mulford, and dressing hastily went to ♦ he room. I found Mr Wal worth lying upon the floor. Dr. Childs, Dr. Fleming, and a boarder and myself then lifted him to the bed. The boy who took Mr. Walworth’s card up to his son, made the following statement: “I was told to take the gentleman’s card up. I went to the room and called young Walworth twice He did not answr« r at first,so I opened the door. He said, say that 1 am riot dressed yet;I liav’nt got up. 1 went down stairs to the gentleman an I told him that Mr. Walworth would be down in a few minutes. Soon after, the bell of No. 267 raug. I went up and Mr. Walworth said, “tell the gentleman to walk up.” I did so, and went up with him* When I opened the door, young Walworth wls sitting in full diess with his bat on, near the window. L showed the gentleman in. He looked very much dis pleased, and as I went out, closed the door be hind me. Before I had got down stairs, the bell of No.268 rang furiously two or three times. Then young Walworth came down stairs. He looked cool and collected. He told me to find an officer, and stood by the door looking up and down the street I carr.e back and sai l I could not see one. He said,“Why don’t you go to the station house, then?'* Shortly afterward he went to the station house himself. Judge Garvin has beeu retained as counsel

for young Wa’worth, aud told the reporters af ter he came from the cell in the station house, that ho thought it best for Walworth not to say anything. Chief Justice Barbour of the Superior Court, is a relative of the parricide, and adjourned his court to-day, on hearing of the murder. The following is the murderer’s story as told the coroner’s jury: “1 reside with my mother in Saratoga, my father having parted from her some years ago. My father is an author, and I have been study ing law. I think father is about forty-one years old, but do not know where lie was born. My father has not lived with my mother since we left here, three years ago, but he has re Featedly seut threatening and insulting lette s t is only a short time ago since he threatened to shoot my mother auu myself. I shot him becaose of this. Not long ago 1 met him on the street in Saratoga, and I then told him that if he did not keep away from us or molested my mother any more I would shoot him. 1 told him that there were bounds which I would not allow any iiau to go be yond with impunity, especially when my mother was being insulted. I went to his house yesterday,left a note for him to call on me. which lie did this morning. Wlien he came into niv room I drew out a revolver and told him to promise me that he would not threaten or in sult us any more, which he promised. Shortly afterwards we began speaking on family mat ters and he used some very insulting language and put liis baud to his pocket as though to draw out a pistol, when I shot him. He then came towards me au 1 I fired three other shots at him. When I fired the last shot lie had me by the collar. I only regret this oil account of the effect it will have on my family. I would like Judge Barbour to know this, as he was in terested in the case before. Various .Matters. Three burglars and a liighwaymau were ar ccsted this morning on Gtli avenue.
