The police records show that people instead of getting drunk Saturday nights as they did in the golden age of the Ecpublic, now get drunk in the middle of the week Nearly every one indulged in Tonics Satur day. To obtain the full beneficial effects of sueb a remedy a week’s use is absolutely neces sary. Tho Earth got her faca thoroughly washed Saturday.

Ho said that every denomination supposed that it had the key which unlocks the treasure house of the scriptures; and so, perhaps, it has, as there are many doors opening upon different views of the religious world, each suited to those who choose its particular key. The ser mon in general, advocated reiieirs toleration. Bloodgood’s Combination'.—This evening Harry Bloodgood’s Combination opens for a season of nine nights at Music Hall. No one needs to be told of the excellence of this troupe, a troupe which richly deserves its well-earned popularity. La Belle Celeste and a host cf new star3 arc comprised in the combination.

TnE Overture.—Work up to a late hour Saturday night materially changed tho aspect of Clt\ Hall. With its contents it now looks like the combination of an immense booth with an industrial show. In the centre of the hail is a floral stand, the pillars of which are en wreathed with evergreen and bunting. Its tables will he devoted to the display of rare flowers.

Schumacher, the well known art dealer, is giving all his time to the arrangement of the collection, and that is equiv alent to saying that it will be characterized by admirable and artistic ta^tc. The other ante rooms and the galleries of City Hall will all he occupied by objects of interest, well worth look ing at. _ -_— Children’s Sunday.—In accordance witn a rule of the M. E. Church, which seta apart the second Sunday in June as “Children’s Sunday,’ special services in the interest of the children were held yesterday in Chestnut street church, which were of an unusually interesting charac ter. The spacious vestry was elaborately and taste fully decorated with evergreens and flowers. Appropriate mottoes and emblems adorned the walls; banging baskets and beautiful wreaths decorated the Superintendent’s desk; and vases of choice and beautiful flowers were tastefully arranged withiu the altar. Here the Sunday School was convened at 1.30 o’clock p. m., the usual hour. The ordinary exercises were omit ted and upraise meeting substituted, in which nearly the entire school participated. At three o’clock the school repaired to the audience room to listeu to a sermon appropriate to the occosion from the pastor of the church, Here vases and baskets of flowers decorated the platform, and two memorial wreaths of exqui site workmanship were suspended from the front of the pulpit, in memory of Miss Lizzie E., daughter of Mrs. M. J. Nichols, and of Earnest M., sou of Capt. William Eoss, who were recently taken from the nursery of the church and transplanted iu the Paradise of God. The sermon was founded upon the appeal of Jacob to the Angel, “I will not lot thee go,” &c., and was an able and very appropriate pro duction, eloquently delivered, and abounding in incentives to tho young to earnest and perse vering activity in the pursuit of troth. An interesting Sunday School Conceit was held in the vestry in the evening, conducted in the usual manner. Speakiug, responses, exer cises in the Scripture, interspersed with sing ing, coneluded the exercises of this “Children’s Sunday.”_ Strong Word3 and Fitting.—Dr. Carrutli I era yesterday delivctcd at the Payson Memorial church a strong and earnest appeal for the Maine General Hospital. His text was taken from Hebrews XHI-1G: “To do good and to communicate forget not; for with such sacrifi ces God is well pleased.” We have only room for the following extract,—an extract deserving the application of the simile of the sacred poet. Words fitly spoken are like apples of gold in pictures of silver: The sympathy of individual Christian hearts flows naturally with the strongest currrent to wards those who by local nearness or close rela tionship demand ourattention and excite our af fectionate solicitude. To weep with those that weep,or wipe from their eyes the tear of sorrow, pour the soothing balm of consolation into the or lacerated heart, is ever a becoming exercise of Christian love. But such personal attentions cannot, in the nature of tilings, be extended to more than a few of the vast multitude of earth ly sufferers. What we cannot, however, do in person, we may do by proxy; and if by our joint contributions of property, or skill, or effort, we can secure the need ful medical aid or the ready ministra tions of such as are officially devoted to the care of the sick and dying, we shall be unques tionably carrying into effect the divinely im posed counsel of the great Apostle. Facilities of this kind are contemplated and afforded by such institutions as that which is this week to absorb to such an almost unprecedented extent, the practical attention of this community. It is one of the noblest of charities,though scarcely coming under the appellation of a charity since it is directly designed and fitted to benefit our selves, should we, in the providence of God, require the applicants that will there be pro vided for the relief or the removal of physical distress. Who of us can warrantably claim, in the ev er uncertain future, exemption from the neces sity of seeking in “the Geuen. 1 Hospital of Maine” those offices of kindness and skill which the most affectionate solicitude of our respective homes may not be able to provide? Could we look down the long vista of coming generations, and see the multitudes who are here successively to reap in person the fruits of this well-timed humane and philanthropic movement, we should be irresistibly constrain ed to do whatever in us lies to secure the early completion of an edifice so long demanded in our state—s> worthy of the age in which we live, aud so well fitted to illustrate the benig nant spirit wb ch even tic- indirect influence of Christianity infuses into the public institutions of our own and other lands. Hospital Fair.—All parties who have do. I Dated merchandise to the Hospital Fai', (suita ble for tbc bail), or who intend doing so, are re quested to send the same to City Hall to-day, if possible. Borne valuable donations came iu Saturday. Among them are a ‘‘Domestic” Sewing Ma chine, by E. A. Joy Esq.; Three “Fairbanks’ Scales,” by the gentlemen Fairbanks’, to the care of Collector Washburn; two large rolls of sole leather from Boston, &c., &c. Lt is very desirable that ladies, furnishing ta bles for the fair, should send them to City Hall as early to-day as possible. The executive committee have decided tbAt Miss Harriet J. Morrill of Deering, having re mitted five hundred and fifteen dollars, is enti tled to the gold natch to be presented by Mr. H. H. McDuffeo, to the lady who obtained the largest contribution in money,in aid of the Hos pital Fair, the same being the largest amount received by them. One of our manufacturing corporations pre sented their operatives tno tickets each to the Fair, the operatives having previously givon a day's pay each to the Hospital Fair. A Monumental Stone .—The monument in memory of the late Father De Rose has arrived from Italy, aud was to be seen in its place at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception yesUrday. It is of fine material, simple,chaste and beautiful design, n nd exquisite workman ship. Upon the granite pedestal is placed an octagonal shaft 6ix feet high, fashioned from the white marble of Italy. Upon the panel immediately in front is the inscription: “In niemoriam Rev. James De Rose, sacerdotis devoti.” Upon the panel to the left is, “Natus in Uolandia, obiit Portland die xii Martii, A. D. 1873.” Upon the panel to the right is, “Hoe monumentuin amoris testimonium fideles crex enmt. Upon the second panel to the right is, “lteligi o munda ct immaeulata apud Deum et patrem. Haec est: visitare Pupillos ct viduas in tribulatione eorum: et iinmaculatum se cus todire ab hoc sasculo.” The shaft is surmount ed by a marble 3tatue of the Holy Virgin, life size, clothed in tlowing drapery, her right arm extended and her left arm leaning on tbc cross, the monument is placed over against the right aisle, about half way between the entrance' to the Cathedral and the altar. A “Democrat,’ Paper.—Saturday morning an ancient man, clad in garments that had about them a suspicion of the good old colony times, slopped into the Press office and began to negouate for a copy of the paper. He sat isfactorily concluded the bargain and was about to deposit the necessary “stamps,” when a mis giving struck him and ha eagerly asked, “Is this a Dimocrat paper?” The cashier opined that it was not, whereupon the ancient and un terrified one gathered the skirts of his coat about him, picked up his four cents and slowly departed, meditating on the danger so narrowly escaped, *_ Coepcs Cheisti.—On Thursday comes Ibe festival of Corpus Chrlsti. It will be observed ;n thp usual manner at the Cathedral of the Conception by admittingchildreu of a suflcient ly advanced age to full communion for the first time. The children will be dressed in white aud the services will be very impressive. Yes terday the children w»re examined in their catechism by Father Bradley.

The OinER Side —The Eastern Railroad Co. is showing that sagacity and that so licitude for the comfort of the traveling public which in the past has given it such a hold up on popular favor. Under the able superintency of Mr. Batchelder the P. S. & P. division of the road is undergoing great im nrovemeuts.— Much needed changes are iu progress at the station in this city which is being subject to a general overhauling. The ladies’ room has been thoroughly refitted, refurnished and up holstered and provided with many new conven iences. A new waiting rcom for gentlemen has been built, as also has a large and well model ed baggage room. The main portion of the depot has been repainted and otherwise embel lished. The shed portion will soon give way to a fine gothic structure, which will be a cred it to the company and an honor to the city.— Gas and Sebago have been introduced tliroug oui the building, which is now admirably light ed. Capt. William Mitchell, who was con ductor for twenty years on the old Portland & Keunebec road, has been appointed station agent. Mr. Batchelder has put all the em ployes at the station in uniform, and when a hack drives up several of them are in waiting to give all needed information and assistance to passengers. The “new blood” in the Super intendent’s office is evidently telling, and the company is determined to be outdone by none of its competitors. Free Street Sunday School Concert.— The regular monthly Sunday concert of Free Street SuuJay School, was given last evening in the vestry of thechuich. It was one of un usual interest. The subject of the exercises was “Jesus, the rock of ages.” It was written on the blackboard, one letter at a time, and as each letter was placed on the board; a passage of scripture was repeated by one of the classes, These were fallowed by remarks from several gentlemen present, including the pastor. These exercises were proposed by the efficient Superintendent, Mr. Melcher. This is the only school, we believe, that has abolished the con tributions at Sunday School Concerts. Oct Door Meeting.—The first of a pro posed series of open air meetings, to be con ducted by clergy men of different denomination: • was held successfully in Market Square last evening. Them was a large and attentive au dience present. Bee. Mr. Hanuaburg read the scriptures, offered prayer and made the prin cipal address. Several other gentlcmeu also offered remarks upon the general subject of religion. The singing by the ladies of Pine street society was excellent. Too next regular meeting will be held on next Sunday evening. There is talk of bolding a meeting on every pleasant evening of this week. Two Mbs' Dbowsed.—Four vessels arrived in port yesterday from the Newfoundland fish ing banks. The catch has been large, and they have heavy cargoes. Capt. McDonald, of the schooner “Good Templar," reports that two of the crew of the schooner A. McDonald, were drowued on the 20th ult. while crossing to an other vessel in a dory. A stiff breeze sprang up and the dory was capsiezd. One of the men, Frederick Lorcttc by name, was a resi dent of Long Island, where his parents, who are French, reside. He was 21 years of age and unmarried. The other man whoso name we did not learn, belonged in Eastport. Beware.—There are in town a large number of New York gamblers, who have been driven from that city by the “a*rest on reputation” law, and who have come here hoping to reap a rich harvest during the continuance of the Hospital Fair Their headquarters are said to be at a certain place with an aristocratic namo not far front Congress street. If any one has any money to get rid of, let him give it to the Hospital in preference to these harpies. The Marginal Way Case.—The caso of Moore against the city was given to the jury Saturday. At 10-39 Saturday night they came to the judge far instructions as to the legality of the contract, and were told that it was not valid. At 12.30 they reported themselves as un able to agree upon a verdict,and were discharg ed from further consideration of the case. They stood ten for Moore and two for the city.

Ihe Modoc Question. Opinion of Attorney General Wil liams. X'Sic !?3urdercrs May be Tried by Military Commission. Washington-, June 7.—The following is the decision of Attorney Generel Williams relative to the Modoc captives: Department of Justice, j Washington, June 7, 1873. j To ttie President: Sir—I have the honor to acknowledge the re ceipt from you of several papen relative to the Modoc Indians now in the custody of the Unit ed States army,with the requestor my opinion as to authority to try certain of the prisoners by a military tribuual. The main facts out of whitb the question arises are these: In 1884 the United States nude a tseaty with these Indians, by the terms of which they were to go and remaiu upon a reervation in the State of Oregon. Late last fall, the Indians be ing away from their reservatkn, a military de tachment was sent to proorc their return. Finding them uuwilling so g. peacefully, the officer indicated bis determiation to use com puleon, in consequence of with a conflict en sued between the United Stars troops and In dians. Soon after several peaceable settlers aud their families, in tho viiiuitv, were mur dered by the Indians of tbiabaud. They then entrench- d themselves in tla lava beds in the neighborhood. Fighting caned, and oue ortwv severe battles took place, in which persons on both sides were wounded ad killed and tpe United States troops repula*. Pendiug hos tilities, negotiations were owned for peace and on the 14th of April last, Gm. Canby.Kev.

Canliy and Mr. Thomas were treacherondj assasinated, and Mr. Meacham severely wanded by the Indians present upon that occasion Battles followed, and Capt. Jack and all, oraist all of bis tribe have been captured, and all are now in the hands of the military auttorities. Gen.

Section 13 of : these instructions is as fofcws: “Military juris diction is of two kiuds. First, that which is conferred and defined by*atute; second, that which is derived from co*ton laws of war."

EXECUTION OF MODOC MURDERERS STOPPED. More Outlaws Captured. _ New York, June 7.—A special from the headquarters of the Modoc expedition, dated the 5th instant, to the Times, states that Gen. Davis was preparing evidence to prove the

identity of the Modoc murderers, intending to hang eight or ten of the leaders to-morrow, (the Gth), when he received a dispatch from Washington to hold them subject to decision there, and probabie court-martial at the camp. This delay causes great dissatisfaction among the citizens, and in camp, and is calculated to create a wrong impression among the surround ing tribes, who are disaffected. Boyle’s Camp, June 5,—8 a. m,—Late yes terday afternoon, a detail of men belonging to the artillery, arrived from Timber Mountain, near the peninsula, with twenty juniper logs, clean and straight, and evidently not intended for use iu the erection of tents for the prisoners Many persons marvelled for what purpose the timbers bad been obtained. This morning the secret is out. General Davis intends to erect a scaffold and execute about a dozen of the worse murderers in the tribe at sunset to-morrow. He feels there is no need for delay as to a doubt of the guilt of the intended victims can exist, and justice demands speedy and certain action even at this time. lie is now writing out a statement of their offences, which will be read to the condemned Modocs. Still Later. A dispatch says that General Davis, after having completed all arrangements for the exe cution of the Modocs, received orders from Washington to hold the prisoners until fur ther advised, and is thus stopped in the con templated work. The feeling in the camp is of profound disgust at this result. One of the Oregon volunteers, just arrived in camp, says his troops captured five warriors, four squaws and five childreu, among them Dave. These prisoners were at Linkvillc.
