MAY TERM, SYMONDS. J., PRKSIDINO. Wednesday.—Seth T. Scribner et al. vs. Annie E. Mason. Action to recover $12.58, balance of ac count for groceries. Defence—that groceries were de livered to the husband of defendant and c ousumcd in the family. Decision lor the defendant. Ridlon for plaiutift*. Williams for defendant. Sally H. Burke rs. City of Portland. Action to re cover damages for au injury alleged to have been sus tained by reason of the slippery condition of a pub lic walk owned by the city and leading from the door of the police station in the rear ot the City Building to Myrtle street, on the 24th of December last. Dam ages claimed $3000. The case was withdrawn from the jury and submiltod to tbe presiding judge. Mrs. Burke is an Irish woman about 6»‘ years old, mad bad been some time in the employment of the city, doing washing for the prisoners in tbe lock-up* On the day before Christmas she left her borne on Casco street to go to the station for the weekly wash ing. She came down Congress street, entered the building at the main entrance on that street, and af ter doing what work she had to do in the {police quar ters took a bundle of clothing and stepped out of the rear door on to the walk leading to Myrtle street.— While in the exercise of ordinary care she slipped up on tlia ice and sprained her ankle, rupturing (he lig aments and disabling her from the performances of her ordinary and customary labors which arc her on ly means of support. The ice was smooth and very slippery, and the testimony was that it had been so all tbe foreuoon up to the time of the accident, which happened about twelve o’clock; nothing in the nature of sand or ashes having bee spiiuklcd ui>on it. The defeuse is, that this being an action under the statute making municipal corporations liable tor de fects in highways, the action cannot be maintained because the place where the Injury was received was not a way within the meaning of the statute; that mere slipppiiness caused by ice is not a defect; and that plaintiff was not in the exercise of ordinary care. Decision reserved. C. W. Goddard for plaintiff. C. F. Libby for defendants. Alfred S. Hallett vs. Reuel Merrill. Action for money had and received to the amount of $250. In 1860 plaintiff was master of the ship “Northern Crown,” and while in London, wishing to retire from navigation, the owuers sent on the defendant to take charge of tbe vessel. The plaintiff says lie had two hundred and fifty dollars worth of seamen’s clothing which the defendant agreed to take and dispose of, charging no freight nor commission, but to retain one-half the profits and pay over the balance to plaintiff. The defendant admits the bargain, but says that after being out some thirty days a mutiny arose and he was put in irons by the crew tind confined sixty ■days, during which time the clothing disappeared He also pleads the statute of limitations. Decision reserved. Rand for plain iff. Giveen for defendant. ! Municipal Court. BEFORE JUDGE MORRIS. Wednesday.—Thomas Duffey and Thomas Welch. Intoxication.

Albert McDonald (Tuesday, omitted in Press).— Sixty days in county jail. Brief Jottings. The rain-fall of Wednesday morning was 52.100 of an inch. Since June 1st, to date 11-100 inches have fallen. Stroudwater has contributed seventy-five dollars cash to the Hospital Fair. .House wanted. See advertisement. Gen. S. F. Hersey, member of Congress, from the Fourth District, is hi the city and attended the Hospital Fair last night. The hot spell is upon us. Dr. Greene delivered an oration on ‘'Scientific Spirit” before the Medical Association last evening. The employees of the bustle factory will be paid off iD full to-day. It is said that the con cern is about to resume business. Daniel Da"is, of the firm of Davit & Beck, White Bock. Gorham, lies at the point of death. The Treasurer of the Hospital Fair has re* celved a letter from Dr. Dana, enclosing $250 from himself and other physicians, $120 have also been received from ten physicians. State Street Church is reminded that it is to furnish refreshments to-morrow moruiug. Hospital Fair. SECOND day, The second day of the Fair opened cloudy, but tbe snn soon came breaking through, and shone with a fierce splendor until nightfall. The attendance was much larger than on the previous day, anil duriag the evening the ball was crowded to its utmost capacity. Tbe sales j are rapidly increasing in number, but tbe plac es of the articles taken away are inimediaiely filled by fresh contiibutions. The refreshment tables in Fluent Hall were excellently well pat. ronized, and the receipts were large. The out of town attendance isoons-antly increasing,and the beautiful weather we are having,will doubt less be much augmented in the days to come. We give a description of the tables which we omitted to mention yesterday. No. 2 is the South Berwick table, where a flue display of fancy articles is to be seen. ‘A inagnificeut ebony chair, upholstered with heavy rich fabrics, and valued at 8110, is to be raffled for. Attached to it is an elegant foot rest, with convenient slipper box, valued at S25' The whole affair is very handsome and comfortable. It rests one just to look at it, A ! rench doll with real hair,is one of the great attractions for the little people. It is upon the fine display of toilet articles however, that this table particularly prides itself. The table is under the charge of Mrs. John H, Burleigh and Misses Mary and Sarah Jewett. No. 4 is the Fairfield table under the charge of Dr. aud Mrs E. G. Fogg. This table is no ticeable for its display of useful articles. In deed, almost everything that a lady and a fam ily want for real use, in this line, can be found at the table. The attention of those who wish for serviceable souvenirs of the great fair, is di rected to this. Here also, are to be found neat little dolls, and a variety of faucy articles. No. s 7 and 8 arc the i'ortlaud tables, The article which first strikes the atteutiou, is a case of fine gems, contributed by Dr. Hamlin of Bangor. Some of the specimens are rare, uoticeably so a pink pearl. An exquisite set of Chinese chessmen, a fine revolver, two ele gant clocks, a meerschaum pipe that would gladden the heart of any true lover of the great plant,a fine painting of the Mooshilauk river,bv Codman, and many other valuable articles are to be seeu. The greatest curiosity perhaps, iu in the whole hall, are the i.lustrated eggs, which no one should fail to notice. A case of valuable surgical instruments will be given to the doctor who receives the most votes. The guess cake and the set of silver ware attract at tention. The grand raflle, including two mag nificent pianos, fowling pieces, cbroinos, etc. The table in under the direct charge of the Ex ecutive Committee. The cashier is Mrs, S. T. Hooper, aud the assistants are Mrs. Miller, A. Webb, Kendall, Putnam,and C. E. Jose, and the misses M, J. E. Clapp, M. Woodbury, An na Merrill, Chadbourn, Rice, Wescott, Russell, S, J and J. Shepley, Cushman and Crockett. At the Fairfield table, some of the articles belonging to table 13, are placed under the charge of Miss Alice Gerry and Miss Julia Thom. Here is a grand display. Five young ladies, all pretty, all witty, all “sweet sixteen” and all “dressed to kill,” have the matter in charge, Miss Gerry acts as chaperone of this charming little bevy. How the young fellows, thoroughly distracted, flocked around the stand entranced by the quick, glittering glances of the brunette, or the soft languor of the blonde; aud how adroitly and gracefully the attendant divinities absorbed their loose cash. The chief object of attraction, aside from the young la dies, was a doll. Aud such a doll! Of French nativity, clad iu garments cf Parisian cut and make, and wearing a real camel’s hair shawl, * Paris gantt chapeau and all the accessories which go to make up the toilet of a dame de >o ciete. The sight of her would drive a child wild with delight. She was to b? raffled for. Next came the peddler; the queerest, oddest, funni est, little woman you ever placed eyes upon. The raffle for her was under charge of Miss Thorn. A beaulifnl painting of pansies, Nor mandy caps,which are made a specialty of, an exquisite toilet table, a wrought picture of Par is, he of Trojan memory, are at this table. Hel en, divicest of women, was absent, but her place was amply supplied by the young ladies. In speaking of the Watcrville table yesterday we omitted to mention the fine painting from the brushes of Waterville ladies, aud also a cu rious Saxon silver coin. The mats from Ma deira, made from some texture peculiar to that isle, are really beautiful, and will repay close and scrutinizing attention. The lady in charge is Mrs. E, W. Hall, not Mrs. E. M. Hall, as we had it yesterday. There were two raffles in the evening, both for Rogers’ groups. The jardiniere was drawn by M. A. Blanchard, and the “favorite scholar” by Mrs. William J. Thom. There will be free admitttnee to Fluent Hall between the hours of 12 and 3, for the conven ience of business men. The dinners and lunch esare most excellent. The attendance has been so large, that it is found necessary to double the number of waiters. The different church soci eties are requested to govern themselves accord ingly The public are requested to send in flowers to Fluent Hall. The need is urgent. Single Scull Knees. The single scull race by amateurs for the championship of the harbor came off yesterday forenoon. A fairer day could not have beeu se lected. The storm of the preceeding night cleared away before the hour announced for the start, and a glorious sun smiled pleasantly down upon the animated scene. The wharves and vessels along the route were lined with spectators. Soon after ten o’clock the judges, Messrs. Patsey O’Donnell, Barney O’Douahue and Jerry Callan proceeded to their respective positions, Mr. J. H. Carroll, of West End Boat Club, Boston, acting as referee. Prepar ations were made for the race. For the first race the following boats were entered: C. L. Iugalls, pulled by E. A. Henry. Bogus Charley, pulled by R. O'Connor. Hump Back, pulled by A. T. Stewart. North Star, pulled by J. Welch. Wax, pulled by A. H. Larkin. In the choice for position Larkin had the in side, Welch next, O’Connor third Stewart fourth and Henry the outside. Some little time was occupied iu getting into position, but at the word they started off finely. The follow ing was the time made. O’Couuor 17 40; ften ry 18 10; Welch a boat length behind, Larkin three lengths behind Welch, and Stewart dis tanced. The winner was greeted with cheers and the utmost good nature prevailed. After an interval of rest, the fqjlowing boats ranged for the second race. Emerald, pulled by J. Welch; Sfiacknasty Jim, pulled by J O’Donnell; Grade, pulled by C. M. Henry. Welch drew the first position, Henry the second, O'Donnell the third. A fine start was made, Henry taking the lead which he held throughout. The return was made in the following time: Henry 15 27; O’Donnell 16 15; Welch 17 00. The time made has rarely if ever been excell ed in our harbor by amateurs, and a general satisfaction was experienced in the result of both races. Portland Yacht Club.—A meeting of the Portland Yacht Club was held in their club room last evening. The report of the commit tee to revise and print the constitution and by laws, aud also to prepare a sample of a uni form to be worn by the club, was presented.

Mambriso Thatcher.—In Hale’s always at tractive window, corner of Free and Middle streets, is a very fine picture of the splendid Ilambletoniau stallion “Mambrino Thatcher,” painted by the well known artist of Boston, Mnrsdeu. This famous stallion is one of the best in New England. He is owned by Messrs, Kimball and Hayes of Boston. Maine Medical Aaaeciatiea* SECOND DAY’S PROCEEDINGS The meeting was called to order at nine o’clock yesterday morning. Dr. Putnam of Bath, rose to a personal ex planation as to the report of the proceedings of the Association in Wednesday morning’s issue ot the Press. He said lie was not re ported correctly in relation to his remarks on homoeopathy; the only point he made against homoeopathy being that the leading homoeo pathic physicians of Bath were opposed to the Hospital Fair, while some of the leading advo cates of the Fair in Bath were -‘hom ceopathic ladies.” Dr. Sanger said he was also misrepresented in the Press. Remarks were made by several members, all condemnatory of the report. A vote instructing the committee chosen yes terday to revise all reports in the future, was passed, A vote was passed “That this Association enter a general protest against the report in the daily Press of this city of to-day, and espe cially in relation to the remarks of Dr. Put nam of Bath, and in regard to the paper of Dr. Sawyer of Bangor.” [We take this occasion to say that our re port was a correct one in every particular. The Association has very wisely, by the revision of its constitution and by-laws, provided against any such dirty quarrels iu future as the Bangor ■quahble. In regard to Dr. Putnam we have to say that we are pained it we did him an in justice. When a mau speaks of a hnmoeopa thist it is understood that he means a homoeop atbist physician. Who ever heard of a Bruno niau woman? As will be seen above, the As sociation requires all reports to be submitted to its Secretary. No newspaper reporter, of course, would submit his mannscript to the consideration of any official except his chiefs. We accept the report furnished us because we are otherwise unable to make a complete one. What information we have outside we shall enclose in brackets. A physician, whoso name we did cot learn, moved that newspaper re porters be excluded from the room. The Asso ciation, witli great good sense, voted the prop osition down. It is not to be supposed that an assembly, comprising some of Maine’s ablest men, would entertain such an idea for an iu staut. The display of intolerance was prompt ly rebuked. After the Press had been suffi ciently condemned, the tight of the Bangor doctors was resumed. Dr. Laughton made some remarks concerning Dr. Sanger. The Association gave Dr. Sanger a half hour in which to reply. We regret that wo are unable to give an account of the discussion, which, unfortunately, we did not hear.] Voted to elect the President by open ballot at the opening of the afternoon session. Dr. Gordon made a report on Gyraecologv, accompanied by a report of cases and treat ment. Dr. Adams road a report ou pycomria, with report of oases. Iu relation to the paper, Dr Hamlin said that all recoveries in his knowledge have de pended upon the administration of bi-sul phates. Dr. Gilman mad-* a report on the Maine General Hospital, stating the action of the As sociation in relatiou to raising funds, and giv ing a synopsis of the work on the buildings for the past year, and expressing a hope that the Fair would so strengthen its funds as to enable work to be resumed. It is a State and not a Portland institution, We should have a State pride in its completion. It is the child of iliis association. Should wj not care for it? Scatter to the winds any differences of opinion or prejudices. Dr. Fuller said: “Let ns use every eudeavor as individuals to supply funds for the hospital. It deserves our aid, and at this time each of us in our own vicinity can do more than any gen eral agent. Where there is a will there is a wav.” Dr. Edward Cowles of the Massachusetts Society, was introduced, welcomed and invited - to take part in the deliberations of the Asaoci tion. . Dr. Cowles expressed his thanks and made some remarks in relation to the Massachusetts Medical Society. Dr, Sanger spoke for Bangor ia relation to the hospital. Dr. Buxtou’s agency last year did good. He was much surprised at receiving so generous subscriptions in the face of the loss by the Boston fire and the depression of the lumber business. Bangor feels kindly toward the hospital. All who did subscribe did so cheerfully. Dr. Weston also spoke of what had been aud might have been done in Bangor. Dr. Dana thought every individual member of this association felt kindly toward the insti tution. He offered to be one of ten to furnish $250 for the institution. Drs. Putnam, Gil man, Small, Marston, Adams, Files, Stanley, Kilgore and Brickett accepted the proposition. Ten other physicians gave $10 each. Dr. Merrill presented a paper on phlegmasia dolens, which was referred without reading. Dr. Stockman was elected a member of the association. Dr. Wedgowood was delegated to send greet ings to the New Hampshire Association, now in session. Adjourned until afternoon. AFTERNOON PROCEEDINGS. Drs. Harlows of Augusta, and Hamlin of Bangor, were chosen a committee to receive, sort and count the votes for President. A. F. Page of Bucksport, received 50 votes, and was declared elected. While voting Dr. Brickett reported that the Committee on Treasurer ap pointed yesterday, recommend that the Treas urer be chosen f >r five years, and receive $25 a year as compensation. Carried.

The report must be furnished the Secretary by June 1, 1874. in a sealed package without signature Voted to accept Dr. Foster’s offer.

Dr. Adams of Island Pond, thought much money might be raised on the line of the Grand Trunk Bailroad out of the State. Dr. Adams was chosen a special committee to bring this matter to the attention of those living on the line of this road. The follawing members were admitted: Itos coe Smith of Turner, Rufus P.

[Dr. Sanger exhibited a large lizard, eaid to have "ome from the stomach of a woman. Ttic Doctor did not vouch for the statement. There seems to be some mystery about that lizard, Some one whispered to Dr. Sanger, when he arose, and vehemently declared that the reptile had not passed out of his possession since he obtained it. Has some one been tampering with the intestinal saurian?] Dr. Btles from the standing committee, read assignments of subjects for 1874, as follows: The hygienic ana therapeutic effects of exer cise, Dr. T.

Adopted. Forest City Park. The heavy rain Tuesday night, suggested grave doubts to the minds of lovers of the turf whether the track would he in a fit condition for use by afternoon. But as it proved, these fears were needlfcs. A warm sun and a drying wind speedily reduced the heavy mud oil the course to a fine dry dust and by the time an nounced far the inauguration of the first raco of the day, the track was in a splendid condi tion. The attendance was large and indicated the increasing interest felt in the more than ordina ry series of reces now in progress at this popu lar Trotting Park. A large number of ladies graced the grounds with their presence. The chief attraction, prior to the beginning of the race, was of course around the booth where the pools were sold. The bidding was quite spirited, Ella Elwood being the favorite and Fanny second. The judges were J. O. Hicks, Boston, J. W. Withee, Winslow and J. S. Heald Portland. The first race was for a purse of $250, and was free to all road wagons, wag on and driver to weigh 300 lbs; $150 to first, $75 to second and $25 to third. For this race the following entries were made. Lon Morris, Mystic Park, Boston, names b m Ella Elwood: Dan Bigley, Beacon Park, Boston, names ch m Fanny; Wright & Nor cross, Mystic Park, Boston, names cli m Au burn Boy; S. H. Jacobs, Skowhegan, Mainr i names cli g Troublesome; Hiram Woodruff’ Beacon Park, Boston, names btk s Regulator. The horses occupied relatively the following order in the choice for position. Fanny took the pole, Auburn Boy, second, Elwood, third, Troublesome, fourth. Regulator, fifth. First Heat—After a number of false start", the liorses came finely into position and the word “go” was given by the judges. Fanny took, the pole and showed splendid travel. Troublesome pushing hard behind, with the head of Elwood in his wagon, while Auburn Boy and Regulator brought up in the rear. Every horse broke and Troublesome badly. Fanny came in ahead. Time, 2:47. The judges however decided against Fanny, and gave the race to Elwood, the third horse in. This de cision gave dissatisfaction to the friends of Fanny and created considerable “sparring of words.” The feeling was sufficient to lead to the resignation of two of the judges, Messrs. Hicks and Witbee. Geo. F. Hitchings of Port land, and Isaiah Pompiliy of Auburn, were ap pointed in their places. Second Heat.—Fanny sold first in the pool, with Elwood second. At the time of starting, Fanny took the lead again, which she kept up coming in the winner, with the other liorses in the following order: Elwood. Regulator, Troublesome, Auburn Boy. Time 2:48. Third Heat.—A good deal of jockeying was displayed before the word was given. The horses went off with very littlo relative change of Dositious from the other heats. El wood tried hard to catch the pole withont suc cess. Troublesome behaved badly, as usual, Fanny won the h“at, vith Elwood second, Troublesome third, Auburn Boy fourth and Regulator last, Time 2:45$. fourth Heat—Consider;! hie scoring improved the mettle of the horses before they got the word. Fauny took her old place at the pole, which she struggled hard to maintain, but on the home stretch Elwood made some splendid spirts, and passed Fanny almost at the wire, winning the heat. Time 2:44$. The other horses were Fanny second, Auburn boy third, Regulator fourth and Troublesome last Troublesome was ruled out as distanced. Fifth Heat—A good deal of excitement was manifested over this heat, but after a hard struggle, it was wou by Fanny. Time 2:45 Elwood being second. Regulator third and Au burn Boy last. Between the second and third heats, a saddle race took place for a purse of $100, for horses that never trotted better than 2:35, Wright & Norcross, Mystic Park,Boston, names blk s Lo tha!r; H. E.

The new clip is near at hand and the market appeals to be free from the usual excite ment, and comparatively few buyers are turning their at’ention to the West, as the belief is quite prevalent that supplies car he purchased in Eastern markets from week to week, to better advan-age, than mak ing large contracts at the West A lot of new Ohio fleece has already been received, but uo considerable sunplies can be looked f t until e>rly in July. In New York, for domestic a very fair demand is noticed, with prices hrmly maintained. The stock bas not been increased, but remains light with the assortment very poor. The amount of fleeces at present in stock i« lower than tor many years past, and the frequent large sales of pulled have greatly reduced the supply of that descrip Ion. In Philadelnhia the general outlook is pretty much the same as previously reported. There is no materi al change to w noted, either in prices or demand, though the transactions have been on a somewhat smaller scale, owing, apparently, to the decreasing; stock of desirable grades of old, and the yet scanty receipts ol new. The manufacturers are very bare of supplies, and are only purchasing from han 1 to mouth. The new clip is beginning to come forward.
