Three hundred and fifty five dollars have been reoeived from the citizens of Saco for the Hos pital, and $100 from the employees of the C. P. Kimball Company. Huge drifts of snow are to be seen on the White Mountains. The sight is a fine one, the quantity bciug unusually large for so late in the season. “Prof.” Haines says lie is going to give a ben efit to the Hospital to-da.'. All his profits from three card monte this afternoon he promises to turn over to the fair. The police force are “putting in the big liclts,” now; going for the sinful ones and winning golden opinions from everybody. Gambling isn't so safe an occupation in Port land as it once was. Prof. Barbour of Bangor, preaches at State street church to- morrow. Despite the clouds of dust yesterday was very pleasaut. There is a compositor in the Press office who oan set, distribute and eat at the same time. There was an exciting runaway ou Portland street about eight o’clock last evening. Maine Congregational Conference.— The annual Conference of the Congregational denomination will be held at Gorham, com mencing Tuesday, Juno 24tb, aud will coatin' ne during the week. A committee on hospital ities have bad the matter of arrangements un der consideration, and we arc informed that the applications for places for entertainment from various sectious of the State is unusually large. Arrangements have been made with ail of the railroad couipauics, aud the several steamboat companies for fare at half the usual priqs. The superintendent of the Portland & Rochester Railroad will run an extra train after the evening exercises, so that delegates aud others from this city will be able to return home at night. The Westbrook Congregatiou alists have kindly tendered the hospitality of their own homes to any of the delegates who may fail to fiud suitable accommodations in the neighboring village of Gorham. The meet ing will he a very large one, and the exercises will be very interesting. Memorial Day.—At tho regular meeting of Bosworth Post No. 2, G. A. R., held Friday evening, June 13,1873, it was Voted, That the thanks of this Post be ten dered to the several military companies for their kindness in doiug escort duty on Memorial Day; to the City Government for their kind assist ance; to the Trustees of Evergreen Cemetery for many favors extended; to the several cler gymen of tile city foi sermons relating to Me morial Day, on the Sunday previous; to the Rev. Messrs. Gibbs and Small for tueir kind invitations to the Post to attend service at their respective churches; to Messrs. Shaw anil True, Mrs. Hademau and rs. Somerby for donations of money; and to those who contributed houj quets and flowers for Memorial Day; to ail the ladies who labored so kindly and "zealously in preparing decorations; and to all who in any way contributed to the interest of the day. The executive committee of the society ot the Army and Navy of the Gulf met at the Faltnou'h Hotel yesterday afternoon, aud made arrangements for the reception of that Socieiy in August next. Gen. P. H. Sheridan, Gen Sherman, Admiral Bailey and many other dis tinguished commanders have signified their in tention to visit our city on that occasioh. We hope, for the credit of our city, that the union of this honored Society may prove a great sue- ! Cess. Maine General Hospital Fair. FOURTH DAY, The Fourth day of the Hospital Fair open ed cool and breezy. Though clouds of dust were blowing in the streets, it was ou the whole very comfortable. The halls were at a pleasant tern perature all day. The forenoon attendance was much larger than on any previous forenoon during the week, very many out of town pevple being present. In the afternoon it slackened a little, but duriug the evening an immense crowd, the like of which had not been seen duriug the fair, packed tho halls and ante rooms aud corridors. Sales at the various tables were most excellent during the day and evening, though the buying of tickets in the raffles absorbed tbe main portion of the money paid out. Contributions continue to pour in. Fluent Hall continues to be crowded with an anxious and hungry multitude, keeping the waiters at work without cessation. Indeed the demand is beginning to exceed the supply, and all citizens are urgently requested to send in contributions of refreshments to-day. The Congress Square Univcrsalist Society have charge of the tables, and, in addition to the usual hill of fare, they promise a regular Satur day night’s supply of baked beans. The ladies of the First Baptist Society are re minded that they are to furnish refreshments on Monday. Contributions of flowers are ear nestly desired. There were four raffles last evening, resulting as follows: No. 22, flower stand, was drawn by Mrs. Dr. Gilman, in ticket 8; No. 40, bronze statuette of Hagar, was drawn by Mrs, J. B Carroll, on ticket 4; No. 53, folding easy chair, was drawn by George Cram, on ticket 55. [This chair, which is an elegant affair, is from the Springfield. Mass., Iron Furniture Co., and was sent through the agent in this city, Mr. Arad Evans]; No. 31 embraced three prizes, tbe first of which, a sofa pillow, was drawn by Mrs. H. C. Noyes, on ticket 94; the se.ond, a doll, was drawn by Mrs. F. H. Colby, on ticket 24; the third, a toilet set, was drawn by 8. E. Grover, on ticket 12. a uc wuwai uvci me reclining cnair nas oeeu a close one, and at present Dr. Burr leads, with Dr. Dana close behind him, and Dr. Tewksbury third It promises to develope into a fight be tween the ‘’ ’pathies.” Success to them. A later account puts Dr. Tewksbury first, Dr. Burr second, and Dr. Dana third. In tbe contest for the Knight Commander’s swonl, Orrin 8. Fogg is three votes ahead of his two competitors. In the voting ou the surgeon’s operating case, Drs. Fitch and Hunt are still the favorite candidates, the former standing at ten o’clock last eveniug 61 to the latter’s 35. Many other doctors have received from one to a dozen votes each, hut none are near the two named. Nearly $700 were taken at the refreshment tables in Fluent Hall yesterday. The Floral Committee desire we should say that the professional gardeners, as well as mauy private parties, have been very generous iu supplying flowers, hut that present resources for the booth are nearly exhausted. All who can send contributions of flowers today (even If but small lots), are desired to do so. GLASS BLOWERS AND POTTERY. There are so many sights to be seen at the fair on the lower floor, that one can hardly find time to go up one flight more, to see the glass blowers a'd the pottery. Our readers may rest assured that the objects there to be round are well worth seeing. The pottery is at the head of the stairs and quite over the gallery; so one can stand and see them make pots and jugs for a moment, and then turn around and btbold the people that are thronging the hall bejpw. It is quite a curiosity to those that never visited a pottery, to witness the making of vessels out of clay. A lump of clay is put into the mill, and before you can hardly see how it is done, a well shaped jug or pot appears. The Glass Blowers are farther along the hall, in a room to the right. There are two stands, with a man to each. They heat tbe glass and make almost every imaginable object, birds, vases, glasses, tumblers, &c., &c. There is also a marine engine, such es are used on steamboats, made entirely of glass, of different •olors, and run by hot air. It is a very novel affair indeed. This room is always full of visi tors. Still further ou is the Natural History room. This of course must be visited by all. There is the live rattlesnake that arrived iu town the other day. As every one else was goiug to the fair, he thought he must go too. One might spend weeks in this room and then not see all that is there. This all costs you but twenty-five cents. One gentleman last evening remarked that “if it wasn’t worth a dollar it wasn’t worth a red.” We entirely agree with him. EOKE8T CITY PARK. FOURTH DAY. The proprietors of this race course may well congratulate themselves upon the propitious weather they have thus far enjoyed. There were at least three thousand people present at the races yesterday. There were more ladies present than on any preceediog day. Both the track and tbe horses were in excellent condi tion. The judges appointed for the day were Messrs. J. S. Heald, Portland, James Keegan, Augus ta, and 3. A.

Another Raid..—Having sent terror to the gambling houses Thursday night, last night Marshal Parker sent several detachments to visit some of the notorious haunts of the most revolting species of crime aud debauchery. One party went to a house on Green street, aud to another kept by one of the knights of the three card monte The raid of Thursday night bad frightened away the inmates, aud the search was fruitless. Another detachment visited the somewhat celebrated castle of Nels Leighton, near the corner of Franklin and Middle streets. It was very dark and quiet, and it required some time to arouse the inmates. Nelson was not disposed to be very hospitable and was ev idently laboriug under the influence of an overtose of his own wretched whiskey. Two soiled doves of Canadian importation were arrested. The next place visited was the mixed establishment of Mr. Pike, just below Nelson’s. There was a somewhat mixed aud juoilant as sembly there, but their joy was suddenly hushed when the force stepped in. Three women were taken there, one of whom was released. Their weeping was bountiful to hear, aud they filled the station with the sound of their lamentations. One house on Newbury street was visited, but all was quiet there. Last night at 11 o’clock the streets were as quiet as a country village, despite the large number of people in town. Tais is largely due to the efficiency of the po lice. There were but two men in the station last night for drunkenness. Habby IIloodgood s entertainment naa a Bother crowded house r>t Music Hall last evening. We have given so much about Harry and his company, that it is almost im possible to add more. Suffice it to say that tbe entertainment is an unusally good one, and we can assure those who wish to pass a pleasant evening and enjoy a hearty laugh, to be sure and go to Music Hail this evening. A mati nee for ladies and children will be given this afternoon at 2 o'clock. Those who haven’t an opportunity of attending the evening perform ance, shouldn't miss tbe first aui only matinee to be given by this combination. The Glorious Fourth.—We are pleased to learn that arrangements have b en made by tbe committee on celebration of the Fourth of July, for a grand floral concert on State street, by one thousand of our school children, accom panied by tbe Portland Baud, under the direc tion of Mr. W. L. Fitch. No doubt our potriotism will be ^reused by lis tening to the stirring strains of mo Marsellaise, Star Spangled Ban"er, and Kelier's American Hymn, when rendered bv sucb a cborus. We trust our young friends will respond to tbe call for rehearsal, which will appear next week. With Passenger Cab Attached.—We understand that a passenger car is attached to the freight train on the Portland & Ogdens burg Railroad that leaves here at 0.15 in the morning, for the benefit of such persons as may desire to go to Fryeburg, Couway, etc., and return the same day The train however, runs as a freight train only. Mesmehic.—Prof. Stearns well give no enter tainment this evening. On Sunday evening he will give an interesting religio-philosophical seance at Army & Navy Union Hall, and mes merise a little Miss who has b“eu blind four years. The ladies of the flower stand request us to say that if any mistake has been made in mak iug change at their table, the amount will be refunded on application to Mrs. Philip H. Brown, at tbe ball. Elsewhere will be found au article from an insurance journal on the merits of the New England Life Insurance Company, represented in this city by ,1. M. Palmer, Esq., 74 Middle street.

Among the recommendations of the civil service advisory board is one that the country be divided into four districts, and a chief ex aminer be appointed for each; these chief ex aminers to travel about their districts and in connection with local officers of sufficient in telligence conduct competitive examinations and forward the result to Washington for in spection and decision. The object is to save applicants the expense of coming to Washing ton for examination, as at present. BY TELEGRAPH. MATTERS IN MAINE. Trial of Wagner. OPENING OF THE DEFENCE. Testimony of Wagner. [Special Despatch to the Daily Press-1 Alfred, June 13.—Mr. Fiscliaeker’c opening occupied au hour and a half. The defence is that Wagner is not the man. He is not bound to show who the man is. Tbe most important facts will be in the testimony of Waguer him self. Mrs. Benjamin Muggridge had a girl in her employ by the name of Matilda Folsom. Nev er saw Wagner till tb:s afternoon; did not see him with Miss Folsom to know that it was him; she told me that Wagner was in the room when I passed through. Louis H. Wagner, age 28; been in this coun try seven years; was in Portsmouth eight weeks before that nine or ten months with Hontvet at Smutty Nose; before that three mouths on Star Island; before that fifteen years on board of vessels off an on, sometimes ashore eight days at a time; sailed in old country ten years; first came to Boston seven years ago last April; first heard of tbe murder as I was taken.by the po lice officer in the city of Boston. Wagner in answer to counsel commences to give an account of bimself from the day before the murder till the time of his arrest, and con tinued his story two hours, covering the time to the purchase of his clothes from a German acquaintance, Jacob Toedtman, of Fleet street, Boston. At 4 o’clock took the lines of H«nt vel’s little schooner at the wharf; Hontvet stepped ashore; prisoner asked him if he was going to the shoals that night; he answered me yes; 1 told him that there was a woman who wanted to go with him to tbe Shoals, named Jobanuah. Ha answered me if she was going she would have to crawl Into the bunk, for he calculated to bait trawls in tbe forecastle. Left him.
