The people at church yesterday, were a tired looking crowd. At the Forest City Park last Friday, the pools netted $20,000, tbo largest amount of money ever put up in one day in Maine. Hon. Nathan Webb and John Rand, Esq . were at Lew iston last Friday on the injunciion case before Judge Danforth. Yesterday, at the India Street Universal ist Church, was observed as Children’s Sunday. The services were very impressive, and the singing by the children well executed. During the exercises 27 children were christened by Rev. Mr. Bicknell, each of whom received a bouquet from the pastor. Saturday afternoon, the Brewer House in Deeriug, was visited by the Deputy Sheriffs’ and a seizure of liqors made. Don’t forget the Temperance Meeting this evening at the Allen Mission Chapel. Several clergymen and reformers will address the peo ple. Opportunity wi'l be given to sign the pledge. Services to commence at 8 o’clock. The roughs from out of town have decided that Portland isn’t a good place for their games, and they have concluded to postpone further operations until the Slate Fair at Bangor in September. Market Square presents a lively appearance evenings. Formerly there was one disconso late vender of some sort of ware, bat since the Fair began there have been three or four. The bridge between the two halls presents quite a rustic appearance. A gentleman went into Fluent Hall on Sat urday to take an ice cream. When he had been waited upon by one of the bewitching little waiters, he complained that the ice was too cold and made his teeth ache, and asked the waiter if she couldn't warm it ? She told him she was afraid it would melt if she at tempted it The anniversary of the opening of the Home for Aged Women occurred Saturday, and a number availed themselves of the opportunity to inspect the building. All expressed them selves as well pleased. Prof. Barbour of Bangor, delivered two of his powerful discourses at State Street Church yesterday to large audiences. Two hundred dollars were collected at State Street Church yesterday morning as a contri bution to the Maine Missionary Society. This amount will Ire further increased by the contri butions of some who were not present. | A very pretty woman made her appearance at the police station last night, and begged that her husband, who was confined there for drunkenness, might be released. Rev. J. T. G. Nichols of Saco, preached at the First Parish yesterday. There were nine drunks at the station last night. The police have made 205 arrests so far this month, which exhibits a lamentable state of affairs in Portland. Affkavs and Assaults.—Saturday night and all day Sunday were marked by a number of aggravated assaults. King Alcohol reigned supreme, and his subjects did him good ser vice. The ball opened by a first-class row near Gorham’s Corner, Saturday night, in which brickbats flew thick, and heads were broken. This was followed by a very respectable scrim maeg on Union street at a late hour. In the opening minutes of Sunday morning a war of the races was inaugurated on Monu ment street by a party of American citizens of Irish descent assaulting the house of an American citizen of African descent, named John Andigee. The assaulting party number ed a dozen, and the defenders of the bouse were two. Reinforcements for the besieged ar rived, however, and a general melee ensued, in which an A. C. of I. D. got stabbed in the face with a dirk by George Williams, an A C. of A. D. The besiegers turned tail and fled at tilts, ana were pursued into Adams street, where the fight began anew. At tbis moment Marshal Parker, accompanied by Deputy VVil' liams and officers Barbour, Meserve, Mosley and Stevens, ai rived on the ground and pro ceeded to make arrests. Some of the guilty ones took refuge in a cellar. One of them, Mat McGlincliy, took to bis heels and escaped, but not before officer Mosley had emptied his revolver at him. Three men we arrested. Yes terday afteruoou Deputy Bridges and officer Hanson arrested Williams, the man who used the knife. Williams denied having a dirk, but confessed to owuiug what he called a “sticker.” About three o’clock yesterday afternoon au affray occurred at Gorham’s Corner, in which one man got badly beaten, and several others Bligbtly. About seven o’clock last evening a stupen dous row, in which two hundred persons were participants or spectators, took place on Wash ingtou street. The crowd dispersed before the police arrived. A row about a woman took place at Pike’s establishment, formerly Kelson Leighton’s, yeBterday, and a man, after the time-honcred custom, was thrown out of doors. A brickbat was thrown at him, and he was severely injur ed. P. S. We have almost forgotton to say that if was a carnival of erime. BASE Ball.—Saturday afternoon a match game (iff base ball was played in Deering, on the grounds of the Dirigo B. B. 0 , between the Dirigo and Kesolute clubs, for the State cham pionship and the emblems. The Besolutes took the start from the first and kept it until the close of the game. Mr. Adam Leighton made a very acceptable umpire. The game lasted two hours and a half. Messrs. Wilde1" and Day acted as scorers. The game was won by the Resolute club, the score at the close be ing 32 to 14. In the first inning the Dirigoes were sent to the bat aDd choked, the Resolutes scoring 8; second inning, Dirigoes 2, Resolutes 4; third’ Dirigtes 3, Besolutes 2; fourth, Dirigoes 0, Res elutes 1; fifth, Dirigoes 1, Uesolutes 0; sixth, Dirigos 1, lies dutes 0; soventh, Dirigoes 1, Resolutes 7; eighth, Dirigoes 4, Resolutes 7; ninth, Dirigoes 2, Resolutes 3. Boot and Shoe Intebest.—For the week ending Saturday the number of cases of boots and shoes shipped by five firms amount to 362 cases. [We shall give hereafter every Mouda.v a fnil exi.ibitof the week’s shipment of boots and shoes of all the jobbers aud manufacturers in the city. ' Don’t omit to dine at Fluent Hall to-day. Among the luxuries to be served is a splendid fresh salmou presented to the Hospital Fair by Mr. D’Artbenay of Augusta; and you may have a taste of Bome very superior butter, do nated by Mr. Renselear Neal of Augusta. Maine General Hospital Fair. FIFTH DAY, Saturday brought but little diminution iu the number of visitors to City and Fluent Halls. All day long a constant stream of people pour ed up the broad stairway and swarmed in the corridors and ante-rooms. In the evening there was of course a big crowd In attendance. The scene presented did not vary much from that of previous evenings. People promenaded and flirted, and partook of refreshments and drank soda water and lemonade, and bought tickets in raffles, and squinted through the thingum bob that multiplies the scene so many fold. Many gathered about the soda fountain counter to witness the curious vaporization of perfumes by which a constant sweet scented cloud is dif fused throughout the ball. Great numbers clustered about the Tonic staud, where the handsome news agent was kept busy by the constant demand for papers. The witty descriptive article on the “pantmps cope” has obtained a large circle of readers, and the fair gossip in the last issue was highly relished by those who perused it, A capital spiritual pun worthy «f Tom Hood’s ghost oc curs to us in connection with that word “tonic”; but all puns on the name are forbidden by its editresfes because of the depressing effect on the general reader, so we are obliged to forbear. VVeare authorized to state that a poem entit' led “Cbauged,” written expressly for the Tonic by Longfellow, the poet, will appear in to-day’s issue. Back numbers of the paper can 1* found at the news stand. Of course everybody will want a complete tile. The New bury street church table, No. 1(1, has met with great and rapid success. All the goods upon it have been disposed of, and it has been turned over to the Executive Committee, who will furnish it with articles from the State tabes. Among other contributions received is a valuable box of fancy articles from the la dies of the Unitarian society of Castine,by Mrs. Alex. Longfellow; a box of fancy articles from the North Congregational church of Belfast, #(il.45 cash and a box of fancy articles from C. C. Vinal’s Society, Kennebunk, by Miss L. Titcomb. The big raffle for the pianos,"ehromos, fowl ing pieces, &c., is attracting much attention. More attention was attracted Saturday evening however, by a young woman who went up the stairs at the left of the platform, seated herself at a piano and played “Java March,” seated herself at the organ and played “Java March,” went to the other organ and played “Java March,” then stepped down into the hall, went round to the stairs at the right of the platform, ascended them, clutched the ivory keys again and played the same old identical East Indian archipelagoian promenade. At the Portland table is to be seen a fine wa ter color, by Mrs. Stephen Berry, called “Bring ing in the Deer,” the subject being taken from the well known lines in “As You Like It.” Among the thousands of articles contributed to the Hospital Fair, a lot of carriage robes costing $75, manufactured at the factory of Thomas Goodall of Sanford, and contributed by him, are worthy of special notice, as they are as fine specimens of that kind of goods as are manufactured in this or any other country. Congressman Burleigh, agent of the Newicha wanick Company of South Berwick, contribut ed a fine sample of Victoria Kersey, which some parties insisted was imported; also some horse covers and lap robes, the material of which came from the same well known factory, but were made up and are sold by Messrs. S. C. Chase & Co., Boston, who are also agents for the sale of Mr. Goodall’s goods. The really beautiful proportions, fine archi teetural effects and coloring of Fluent Hall,— , to which many of us were almost strangers be fore it was so generously offered for the use of the Fair by the liberal proprietor, Mr. Fluent,— draws forth much admiration from visitors. It has been so skillfully and artistically developed by its present adornment, an adornment in such good taste, that we hardly know to whom we are indebted for the graceful and attractive tout ensemble so delightful to all who enter. All Saturday afternoon and evening the hall was thronged by men, women and children with vo racious appetites. It is amusing to notice the great quantities the young men eat,—ju t to please the pretty waiter girls, they say. These same waiter girls are bard workers, and each makes strenuous efforts to out-do the others, and so make the best show of cash receipts. Saturday a long, lean, gaunt-looking man, who gave one the idea that he had been fasting for at least forty days, made his appearance in the hall. How the waiters rushed for him! Each was frantic to seat him at her table, for he look ed good for a four dollars dinner, at the least. To see the children eat is one of tbe great pleas ures. One of the ladies in charge, who has a heart!, humorousaud sympathetic appreciation of the small people, declares that she is amply rewarded for all her labors by just watching them at lunch. At the very rear of the hall, behind the evergreens, is flirtation bower, where an opportunity is afforded for squeezing bands between the courses. This afternoon, at one o’clock precisely, there will be served up hot, four roast pigs. Shade of Charles Lamb! Won’t there lie a rush at the dining tables! As the Fair progresses one has more time to look iuto the details of the several entertain ments that are offered to tbe pleasure seekers who are constantly thronging tbe entire build ing. We notice near the centre of tbe hall the Electrical Indicator, that we briefly alluded to at tbe commencement of tbe fair. This was at first to be found in the Chief Engineer’s room, but owing to the crowd that are continually around it, it was found to block tbe passage way to Fluent Hall, consequently it was re moved to its present position. The Indicator is operated by Mr. B. S. Smith of Boston, who w:ll be most happy to shoe/any one the stiength of their nervous system for the small sum of ten cents. The electricity is let on very slow and even, there being not the slightest jar or uu|nv<i»uiiv zwiiuf,, jvu utcu IOBC UU MIUIC lightning at a single dose than you choose. It is quite amusing to notice difference in the strength of nerve. For iustancp, some of the stoutest men cannot control their nerves as well as some hoys and girls that have not half the muscle. The average is 250 degrees. There are a very few men who have been known to take the entire strength of the battery—900 degrees B it few, however, can take more than 300 de grees. The operator tells us that he can take 400 degrees, but cannot gain on it a particle. The machine being in such a conspicuous place naturally attracts a deal of attention. The pro ceeds of course go towards the Hospital fund. The picture gallery, which is really a rare and beautiful collection, is often lightly passed over in the glare of pretty fancy work and the still greater attraction of pretty women. We may not for years have another opportunity to ‘ee so many choice aud beautiful pictures as may now be seen in this local collection. We all long to see the beautiful works of art in foreign lauds, which bnt' few of us can do, therefore, let us not slight an opportunity to taste, even in a small measure, this great enjoyment. Two pictures in the gallery in City Hall, No. 11, Gif ford’s “Kauteoskill Clove,’, and No. 92, McEn tee’s “Flight of Birds,” would repay any one for many miles of journeying and many times the small entrance fee. The following is the result of the raffles Saturday evening: No. 33, silver plated tea set, ticket 17, Miss Myra Chadbourn; No. 54, em broidered strip, ticket 9, M. G. Ray; No. 18, set of Dickens’ Riverside edition, ticket 25, James Hinckley; No. 10, oil painting (flower piece) by Seavey, ticket 46, Mrs. William Tib betts; No. 50 (three prizes) foot rest, ticket 193, A. 1’. Fuller, shawl strap, ticket 39, Miss Eve line Mclntire, toilet cushion, ticket 2, F. Max well. Ticket 8377, holder unknown, drew the glass blower s prize. There are twenty candidates for the set of surg.cal instruments, 239 votes having been cast. Or. Hunt bas 77 anj Dr. Fitch 63 O. S. Fogg leads in the contest for the Knight Templar’s sword, with S. C. Gordon secoud and Stephen Berry third. In the race for the reclining chair Dr. Tewks bury has swept to the fore, with Dr. Burr sec ond and Dr. Dana third. The field is a close one, and a blanket would cover all three—pro vided it was kig enough. The floors aud corridors of City and Fluent Halls have been washed and thoroughly reno vated since Saturday; the tables have been re arranged with new goods, and everything is in perfect order for another week’s pleasure and profit. We understand that refreshment hall will, under the skilful management of the la dies in charge he made, if possible, more at tractive than ever. We would advise gentle men to take their families aud dine down town while this beautiful hall remains open. Soldiers’ Monument,-At the regular meeting of Post Bosworth, G. A H., Friday night, it was voted to raise a committee to act with the representatives of the Army and Navy Union and other organizations. The following named comrades were accordingly ap pointed a committee on the part of the Post: — T. A. Roberts, W. H. Green, Z. A. Smith, J. F. JLand.R. K. Gatley, John Yeaton. Jr. THE NEW ARRANGEMENT. Knstern and Maine Central Railroad*. RESIGNATION of judge rice and ELECTION OF HIS SUCCESSOR. Saturday morning a meeting of the Directors of the Maine Central railroad was holden at the Falmouth House, at which the resignation of Judge Bice as President of the road was tendered and accepted. The following resolutions iverc unanimously passed: Resolved, That we have heard the announce ment of tue resignation of Judge Bice, of the Presidency of this Board, and of this corpora tion, with profound regret. Regarding him, as we do, as one of the foremost railroad men in our State and one ot the prominent agents in building up, out of discordant materials, this railway company, infusiug it with life and strength, aud giving to it a name and place among the great railway corporations of the country; feeling, as we do, that in him we had a cool, sagacious, far-seeing, patient, persisten t and at the same time an urbane, affable, and genial executive officer, whose place cannot eas ily be filled, we have accepted the tender of his resignation with great reluctance. Resolved, That the thanks of this Board and of this corporation are due to Judge Bice, and are hereby tendered to him, for his mauy years of untiring, able and faithful discharge of the high and important duties which have devolved upou him as the chief executive officer of this company. Resolved, That our best wishes and sympa thies will accompany him to his new field of labor; that his doings there will be notod by us with interest, and that every success which he there achieves will be the occasion of special gratification to the members of this Board. Resolved, That these resolutions be entered at length upon our records, and that the clerk be and hereby is directed to forward a copy of them to J udge Rice. Hon. Anson P. Morrill of Readfield, was chosen successor to Judge Rice, as President, and Mr. C. F. Hatch, the geueral manager of the Eastern, was elected to a like position on the Maine Central. Mr. L. L. Liucoln, the present Superintendent of the latter road, will continue to serve in that capacity. To-day, as we have previously auuounced, the new arraugemement by which the Eastern as sumes control of the Maine Central goes into effect, and ere long we may expect the opening of the long talked of through line from Hali fax to Xew York, with hotel cars, &c. As soon as arrangements cau be completed the headquarters of the road will be removed from Augusta to this city. The car aud ma chinery shops will soon follow. They will prob bably he located on the lot of laud belonging to the Poor House farm, situated close to the road on the other side of Bramhall. It is esti mated that 3000 people will, by this move, bo added to the population of the. city. Of cours the benefit to the trade of the city will be great, _ FOREST CITY PARK. CLOSING DAY. The day was fine, though cool; the track in good condition, though rather hard, and the at tendance slim compared with preceding days. The following were appointed judges:—J. 8. Heald, Portlaud; J H. Morris, DetroU, Mich.; Geo. F. Hitchiufis, Portland. The first race was for a Martin & Pennell wagon valued at $250, for horses that never beat 2.45. The following horses were entered: George H. Bailey names b m Grace. Pruden Let ourman names c m Purity. S. H. Jacobs names g m Lady Walton. G. M. Delaney names b m Nellie. The following positions were drawn: Purity, inside; Lady Walton, second; Grace, third; Nellie, outside. In the pools Grace was the favorite and Purity second. First Heat.—Time 2.48. The horses got a good start, Purity leading. The horses came iu iu the following order: Purity first, Grace second, Walton third, Nellie was' distanced. Second Heat.—Time 2.40$.

John Lambert. 2 1 I 1 Stranger. 12 2 2 The premiums for the day weregiveu by the Hospital Committee. There was very little betting or excitement. New Art Gallery.—Amid the hurry and bustle of fair week the openiug of Schumacher’s new art gallery to the public has almost passed unnoticed. It is directly over the old oue, aud is approached by a stairway veiled by heavy maroon colored hangings. The gallery is admir ably lighted and excellently ventilated. Indeed the light is unusually well managed, and is so arranged as to show pictures to the very best advantage. The frescoiug of the roof is very handsome, and the dark tint of the walls makes au admirable background for paintings. The room is elegantly furnished with several highly-finished, costly aud beautiful easels, curious music boxes of German oak in the form of Swiss chalets, flower vases, engraving portfolios, statuette stands &c. Many fine works of art are hung uoon its walls A New European mountaiu scene of Harry Brown’s is deserving of much attention, as al so are the copies after Meyer Von Bremen, so popular last wiuter. A visit to the gallery will amply repay the visitor. Removal of Grand Trunk Office.—Tlio office of the Grand Trunk Railway Co. in this city has been removed from 282 Congress strict to the larger and more commodious office 74 Exchange Street, near the post office. In this connection we would slate to our readers that the General Passenger office is removed from Bangor here, and that Mr. W. C. Tail man of Ogdensburg N. Y. for a long time travelling agent for the G. T. R. bas been ap pointed passenger agent for New England, a gentleman eminently qualified for the position, not only on account of bis thorough knowledge of the different routes aud the business gener ally, for his obliging disposition, and desire to please the traveling public. Runaways and Smashups.—Saturday even two ladies were thrown from a carriage in Deering, and one of them severely injured in the kuee. East evening a drunken man overturned his carriage (a hired one) on Washington street, and smashed it into smithereens. He was taken in charge by officers Barbour and Stevens. Last evening a man managed to overturn a carriage in which he was riding on Pore street. The man immediately jumped up and ran away, from which we infer that the team was a hired one. There was also an overturn on Cumberland street last evening The carriage was smashed, the horse injured, and the driver fled. Un doubtedly his team was hired. The police found a horse attached to a buggy trotting along on State street last evening, without a driver. Was the team a hired one? Apparently the profits of the livery stable keepers were not heavy yesterday. Three More.—Saturday morning, officers Horr, Jones and Hanson, arrested three New York sharpers, two on suspicion of being pick pockets and one on suspicion of being a gam bler. The gambler broke the hank at the St. antes the night before, winning its small capi ss i(l ■ for which he deserves some praise. _. .'at 'leavy gamblers we Portlanders are. Think of running a faro bank with only $800 'l,>'3 ' man with so small a fortune as la ai rest invest it in some honest calling. The gambler and the pickpockets were packed of to Boston on the evening boat Prof. Stearns -Last eveningT^ood audi ence gathered at Army and Navy Hall to wit ness an exhibition of Psychologic power The entertainment was appropriate for a Sabbath evening. The Professor carried his subjects to the pyramids, to Jerusalem, to the tower of Babel, to Babylon, and drew out excellent descriptions of dress, method of working, and scenery. To all who are curious to examine the operation of mind upon mind, a fine oppor tunity is now presented. The Professor has some singular drawings worth examining. The Army & Navy Picnic.—The excur sion to Old Orchard Beach to-morrow, will per haps be the most popular party of the seasou. Nearly every one intends going, and arrange ments have been made to accommodate our out of town people who wish to go on this trip and at tend the Fair the same day. The first train will leave at 8,30 a. ra. prompt, and return immediately. The second train at 12.15 p. m. Secure your tickets and avoid the rush. See advertisement. Larcenies.—Officer Place arrested James Curry of Charlestown, Mass., at Deering yes terday for the larceny of a horse blanket hood from Samuel Jacobs. Jacobs accused Curry of the theft, whereupon Curry assaulted him. A man was arrested by officer York yester day at Gorham’s Corner, for the larceny of $13. Some of the money was fouud upon him. Office Frye arrested three boys last night for stealing lead from a bake shop on Union street. Bloodgood’s Combination.—Saturday even ing Harry Bloodgood’s Combination gave an other rousing entertainment at Music Hall. All the specialties were given with, if possible, increased effect, and the extraordinary hoop of of fire feat presented once more to an astonish ed and delighted audience. To-night positive ly the last entertainment will be given, as the troupe is announced to ap|>ear in Biddeford Tuesday. We hope to see a crowded house. Park Street Grammar School.—The fol lowing report for last week which has been faauded us from Park Street Grammar School for boys we think worthy of record. The read er must bear in miud that it was “Confirma tion” as well as “fair” week, and that a small attendance might not unreasonably beeu looked for: Whole number registered, 143. Average attendance, 139. Perceutage of attendance, 9.72. Location or B. 4k Iff. Railroad. Mr. Editor:—How are we to understand the location adopted by the Boston & Maine Bail road Corporation and approved by the County Commissioners Feb. 14 and 18 1872? Do they intend to lay tracks across Commer cial street at three separate points between State and Center? We judge this to be their intention from a careful reading of their loca tion as published. Will some one, who cau, enlighten us on this matter? A. Those in want of household articles can ob tain them at very reasonable rates at the Fair. A large quantity was disposed of to purchasers residing in the city, as well as mauy in the vicinity. Should there be any articles left unsold when the Fair terminates, it has beeu decided by the Executive Committee not to sell them at auction, as arrangements have beeu made to obtain near the value for them.

Sherman’* View*. i^EW York, June 14,—Gen, Sherman liad a conversation with a reporter last evening, and is made to say of Gen, Davis concerning his in dictment of Capt. Jack and the preparations for hanging him and some of his associates: , 5re Statement is correct there is no doubt that Gen. Davis must have exceeded his duty,

and he would have been held responsible for his acts. He should have been guided by mili tary rules and the law. We all know they arc murderers. The President himself says they are murderers, and bad Gen. Davis shot them while being pursued, I do not think he would have exceeded his duties. He did uot do this, and could not afterward shoot them in cold Mood. Gen Davis’s report to Gen. Schofield, Gen. Sherman said, “may differ from that pub lished in the papers. Davis is too experienced an officer to do anything that would hriug odium upon the army or lay himself opon to a military court martial forexceeding his duty as an officer.” Thc.Geu. thinks there will he no difficulty about disposing of the Modocs under arrest; those found guilty of murder will be banged or shot, and if it is proved that there was an agreement for a general uprising among the tribes, others will receive some punishment as a warning to the Indians. He remarked, however, that it was a pity that the guilty Mo docs were not shot at first, then all this com mission business aud expense would have bren avoided. As to the killing alteady a few of the prisoners, Gen. Sherman savs those who committed the deed are low blackguards and murderers, who had nothing to do with the ; army. Recovery of Stolen Good*.
