Brief Jottings. The steamer Express will not run to Ever green Landing this week, as the wharf is beiug repaired. Small boys are losing themselves with alarm ing frequency Yesterday another one disap peared from sight. Millions of eauker worms are destroying the foliage in the gardens up town. A party of gentlemen returning to this city from Cape Elizabeth, recently, saw the verita ble sea-serpent. He was eighteen feet long, and looked horrid. Small boys abont town “think it perfectly right Sir, every Wednesday and Saturday night Sir,” to organize bird-killing parties. Weapons of the Stone age are used. The mercury tried to reach par yesterday, but its ambitious attempts were frustrated. It was a narrow escape from a thermal panic. A new mail service was ordered yesterday on the B. & M. R. R., between Ibis city and Sal mon Falls. Keep all your doors well locked at night, lest thieves break in and steal, they appear to dote on stables recently, but probably wouldn’t ob ject to entering a house, Curiosity is satisfied every evening at the pottery in City Hall, by seeing a handle put ou a jug. Punch still continues to tantalize his poor, patieut wife, and none are inclined to interpose. Even the police staud aud witness the cruel treatment. Mrs. Elizabeth Akers Allen was at the St. Julian last night. The Commencement at Westbrook Seminary occurs to-day. The ora ion will be delivered by Rev. W. E. Gibbs. A poem is to be read by Mrs. Elizabeth Akers Al.en. The graduation class numbers twenty-three. A good prospect of a very interesting fight was spoiled last evening at Market Square, by one of the parties taking French leave. The trouble was begun by two men, each trying to outlift the other on the lifting-machine that stands there. A little maiden was testing her weight last evening on the scales in the hall, when to her utter disgust it was announced that she stood 152 pounds. Upon investigation it was found that a gentleman’s foot was to be deducted. She felt easier. Somebody on Exchange street felt so much confidence in the burglar-proof properties of his safe that he left it staudiug on the sidewalk last night. Hon. J. H. Burleigh has returned the chest of tea to the Fair, which he drew last uight. The name of the hand-cart man with one leg and sore eyes” is wanted at the police station.

The Executive Committee placard the an nouncement that suffrage is universal at tie Fair. If we understtud the matter aright a property qualification of at least twenty-five cents is required. The voting for the surgical instruments, the chair and the Knight Templag’s sword con tinues brisk. The contest is very close. Five persons arraigned before the municipal court yesterday were each sentenced to three months’ imprisonment. We are in receipt of the “Traveller’s Guide,” a neat and compendious list of stations, dis tances and fares on the various railroad and steamboat lines running out of this city.

New Passenger Station.—The Advertiser hears it rumored that the Eastern and Maiue Central railroad companies propose building a handsome passenger station on Back Bay, just above Green street, in which the Portland & Rochester road will join. The present station, in this case, will be used as a freight station. The Grand Trunk will run a braucb from its road at Fisb Point over the Marginal Way, thus connecting with this new station, while its own track will carry it to a connection with the new depot of the Boston & Maiue at the foot of Maple street, with which the Grand Trunk are expected to join. The station on the Back Bay would be erected below Green street on the dnmp sere it not for the inconvenience arising from so many tracks crossing so con stantly used a thoroughfare as Green street.

Deputy Bridges arrested Joseph Vaughan yesterday for the assault on John Audergee in the Monument street broil Saturday night.

M ; B. P. Parker, York county, Q. M.; J Burnham Davis, Cumberland, Q. M.; S. W. Perkius, Otisfield, Q. M.; for ass’t Clerk, P. Smith, Hollis, Q. M. The report was adopted. The record of the last meetiug was read and approved. Letters containing reports from the several county meetings were then read. Salutations from delegates present from oth er bodies were received, and reports from dele gates to other bodies listened to. Rev. G. W. Howe presented the following re solve : '’That we recommend the churches of this Quarterly Meeting to pav to the Treaurer of the Maine F. B. H. M. Society, lor the current year a sum not less than $1500.” Referred to the Busiuess Committee. It was decided to leave the location of the next meeting with the clerk. The Treasurer presented his report. Cash re ceivi d, $107.27; paid out, $24.75; in treasury, $82.52; due from the Conference, $24.64. The report was accepted. The Committee on Correspondence re ported as follows; For Massachusetts and Rhode Is land Q. M., H, Whicher; Penobscot Q. M.. C. H. Webb: New Hampshire Q. M., C. Bean; Baptist State Convention, 8. M. Bailey; Con gregational State Conference, T. Stevens. The Committee on Resolutions reported the following resolution: ’’That the success af our mission as a de nomination depends largely on the efficiency of our publications, and the interest we take in their c.rculation,” This res dve was assigned for Wednesday forenoon at 10 o’clock. Rev. J. Stevens of Saco, advocated the es tablishment of a fund for superanuated preachers. Referred ta the Business Commit tee. Quite a little debate now occurred,which was spicy, though brief. Rev. C. O. Libby of Dover, New Hampshire, suggested the establishment of a board, whose duty should be to endorse the various claims upon the churches for contributions for chari table objects. His plan was to compose this board of individuals selected by the various New England Conferences,and that no charity, be it for a college, church, or any other object, be allowed to appeal to the churches without the endorsement of this board. Rev. J. Melville wanted to discuss the propo sition. To his mind it looked like a centraliza tion of power. There must be some underlying motive in tb; desire to delegate such sweeping powers to the few men the board will be com posed of. It virtually delegates an arbitrary power to the board to force the churches into such disbursements as the board mai dictate. Mr, Libby replied that the matter had better lay over so as to give th ■ brother opportunity to bunt out all the little traps aud tricks, The matter was referred to.the Business Commit tee. nir. ijiuoy also suggesteo mat one nour oe granted to foreign missions instead of fifteen minutes as proposed. Mr. Melville thought there was danger of too much time being being taken for missions. He considered fifteen minutes sufficient. Referred to the Business Committee. After prayer by Rev. Mr. Melvlile the meet ing adjourned. The Convention re-assembled at 7 o’clock in the evening. The church was well filled. Rev. C. Bean conducted prayer meeting services for three quarters of an hour, after which a ser mon was deliverrd by Rev. Dr. Quinby of New Hampshire. His text Was First Corinthians, 14:6. His subject. ‘‘How to conduct a successful prayer meeting.” Paul gave directions in regard" to the general management of meetings,aud espe cially prayer meetings. The meeting should be largely occupied with prayer. There should also he exhortation and singing. 1st—Prayer should contain confession of sin and supplica tion for forgiveness. The singing should con tain thanksgiving. The exhortation should embody confession of wrong, personal experi ence, scripturai allusions, persuasions, etc. 2d— Who are the the proper participants? Ans.— All without distinction of sex who possses the requisite fitness. 3d—What constitutes fitness? Ans —Confession sf sin, the power of melody in the heart,ability to exhort others. 4th—Upon whom do prayer meeti'igs lay special claim as to workers? Ans.—All professing fo'lowers of Christ. 5th—What constitutes the needed pre paration for a prayer meeting? Ans.-Holy living, Bible reading, incidents, experience, consideration of the importance of the occasion and our relation to it. prayer before attending. 6th—How should the prayer meeting be con ducted? Aus.—It should begin and close in proper seaso-; there should be no vacant time; the speaker should speak so as to be heard. 7tli—Their effect? They will edify the partici pants; they will draw in the unconverted; sin ners will be converted; the church will be in creased and the community blessed. The sermon was an able production and was listened to with great interest. The clergymen of this body are a fine looking set of men, and there are among them gentlemen of decided ability. Rev. A. A. Smith, the | opulaJ pastor of Casco street church, was obliged to leave a few days since for the hills of northern Ver mont, on account of ill health. The meetings of to-day promise unusual interest. ij£.aki L,r,ss iiuu£ since a peddler of spectacles called at a certain house in this city for the purpose of selling his wares. The woman of the house had no ready money to invest in optical aids, but'she desired a pair of the spectacles exceedingly. The pedler ex pressed his willingness to exchange the desired articles for any property of equal value which the woman possessed. After limiting the house over she produced a silver coffin-plate, bearing the name and age of her deceased husband. The plate was bartered for the spectacles, but before the exchauge took place she left the room for a moment When she returned the heartless vender of spectacles had disappeared with the coffin plate, omitting to le ive its equivalent. The grief and despair of the al most broken hearted woman at thus losing the dearly prized and funeral memento of her dead lord and master cannot be described in words. Language is too feeble to express it. The police were put upon the track of the fe lingless scoundrel, and the precious article recovered. Concealment or Childbirth.—City Mar shal Parker arrested a woman yesterday, about 35 years old, for the concealment of childbirth. She is employed as a domestic in a family on Winter street. Yesterday a man who was eleoning out the vault found therein the re mains of a child, apparently still-born. The Marshal was summoned, as also were Coroner Gould and the city physician. It is thought the remains have been in the vault about three months. At fust the woman stoutly protested her innocence, but finally owned np to giving h rtli to the child, which she asserts was Still born. Army and Navy Union Exclusion-A lovely day smiled upon the excursionists to Old Orchard Beach yesterday. Some seveu or eight hundred people improved the opportunity to luxuriate in the delightful coolness of this now famous sea side resort. The arrangemeuts for the day’s enjoyment were perfect and no acci dent occurred to mar the festivities. The com mittee are eutitled to credit for the efficient manner with which they completed their ar rangements. At the beach all Rorts of amuse ments were participated in. There was danc ing, and ring toss, foot ball, and base ball,bowl ing, etc., etc. Deputy Sheriff Stevens of Bid neford was on the ground with assistants, but the presence of officers was hardly needed as a more orderly crowd never went to the beach.— The excursion was a complete success. Lamentable Sight.—A sad sight was seen on Commercial street yesterday afternoon. A woman, well dressed and good-looking, but intoxicated, was wending her way towards the Grand Trunk depot, carrying a child in her arms. She said that she was from Yarmouth, aud wanted to get to the depot before the train left. The child ran several narrow escapes of having its brains knocked out against several lamp-posts. Hospital Fair. SEVENTH DAY. The attendance at the Fair yesterday was not bo large as on previous days, tboug in t e evening there was a goodly number of people present The tables begin to present a decided ly naked appearance, tbe sales during the last few days having been remarkably good. Mr. and Mrs. Sprow of Saccarappa have kindly consented that their triplets should be exhibited at the Fair to-dav, and if pleasant they may be seen in one of the nn*e-rooms of il.V Hall from 2 o’clock to 6 this afternoon.

No auction sales of articles will he permitted. The rooBter was set np at auction last night and hrmght five dollars. The genial City Clerk, H. 1. Robinson, Esq,, acted as auction eer. The following letter from the Superintendent of tbe Portland Division Eastern Railroad, ex plains itself: Portland, Me., June 17,1873. Hon. A. W. H. Clapp: Dear Sii—Tickets over the Eastern Railroad will be good as long as the Fair continues. Yours truly, Geo. Bacheldeb, General Agent. Caaamereial Street Again. THE DEPOT QUESTION. Portland, June 17,1873. Mr. Editor:—A writer in your paper of June 14th enquires whether the location of the Boston & Maine Railroad across Commercial street means a crossing of the street by one or three tracks, Sic. It is gratifying to know that some of our citizens are a little anxious as to the railroad occupancy of Commercial street, and the B. & M. should not be permitted to ac quire rights there inconsistent with the necessi ties of the business which must be done on that street. But if rumored negotiations mean any thing, Commercial street is to suffer a greater railroad occupation than the true interests of the city can admit. This is to come about not alone by the B. & M., but by the Eastern and Maine Central Railroads establishing a passen ger depot in the vicinity of Union street. Ths recent announcement of the union of the East ern and Maine Central, placing both roads ud der one management, may be for the interest of both those corporations and of the State as well, and with a knowledge of the ability and energy of the managers of the Eastern Rail road we maybe assured that the interests in this city of the joint corporations will be taken care of If a passenger depot is required on Commercial street near Union, it will be placed there, unless indeed the city shall have the pow er and the will to make city interests para mount. No complaint against the Eastern Railroad is intended. The writer recognizes the enterprise with which that road is manag ed, and rejoices in its prosperity and disposition to accommodate the public. Only last week, however, we saw consummated in the Massa chusett Legislature a scheme -which has been the pet of the Eastern Railroad Company for the past year. While the public were suppos ing that the President and Directors of that road were red hot for consolidation with the Boston & Maine, lo! and behold! under the smoke of that agitation, a bill securing to the Eastern the right to take nearly one hundred acres of land in Charlestown, including that whereon the State’s Prison now stands, was en sured a passage. No fault tef find with this. It gives to the Eastern just the property needed for terminal facilities, in and near Boston. But the situation in Portland is different. Commer cial street takes the water front, where a large amount of the business of the city must be done. It should be secured as free front railway trains as possible. A passenger station at the Back Bay would be quite as convenient for travelers as one on Commercial street. While we are enquiring as to the number of tracks the B. & M. propose to put across Commercial street, let us not lose sight of the question of how many passenger trains the other roads propose to run the length of the street. Yours, Commercial Street. Larcenies.—Mouday night a valuable har ness was stolen from the stable of Joshua Moses at Libby’s Corner, and a harness and three coats from the stable of J. W. Yeaton on Arsenal street, and some clothing from the house of Mr. Small, on the same street.

Saldou and John Van Voorhees of Rochester. A jury was empanelled with out difficulty.

The Court refused to hear Mrs. Authony in her own defence, the District Attorney objecting to her testifying. Very little evidence was given, the act of voting being admitted, as well as the fact that she was a woman Mr. S8ldon in an exhaustive argument, occu pying nearly three hours in its delivery, anun clatid three propositions: First, That the de fendant was legally entitled to vote at the elec tion in question. Second, If she was not so entitled, but believed she was so and voted in good faith in that belief, such voting does not constitute a criminal offence under the statute. Third, That she did not vote on such belief and good faith. He said that the two first questions were for the oourt, and the last for the jury, uuless the court si ould consider it so dear that the defendant acted in good faith as to leave no question for the consideration of the jury.

Sherman and Sheridan. New York, June 17.—The official report of Col. McKenzie to Gen. Sheridan of the former’s pursuit and punishment of the Kickapoos has been received at the War Department. It simply recounts the facts as heretofore. It bpars the following indorsement of Gen. Sher idan; “I take pleasure in heartily approving the conduct of Col. McKenzie as’a gallant act. The only course for the security of life and property on onr side of the Rio Grande, is to do as Col. McKenzie has done. I do not be lieve that any boundary should exist between the United States and Mexico when we are de fending the lives of our citizens and protecting their property against a merciless bandit, to whom the name of murderer, robber or thief poorly applies as covering liis deeds. The gal lant act of Col. McKenzie is best recorded in his plaiu narrative of the event. I can only add that the Government ought to staud by McKeuzie.” The report and Gen. Sheridan’s indorsement were forwarded to Gen. Sherman, and the latter indorsed it as follows: ■‘The conductof Col. McKenzie is fully ap proved. If the attack was made on Mexican soil, as the report does not indicate, it is clearly the duty of the Mexican Government to com plain. Until then thp War Department has do official knowledge that sucli is the fact and need not take any action. It is my opinion that when a band of freebooters, murderers, robbers and outlaws make the recognized boun dary line between t vo nations at peace a safe guard for their crimes, there can lie no just cause for dissension if the lawful forces of either nation pursue them for the purpose of captur iug them or ending their deeds of violence ” A letter front Brackettsville, Texas, states that after McKenzie’s raid a meeting of theMex ieans was held, which at first was inclined to insist upon a reparation from the United States, but wise counsels prevailed, and it sim ply requested the Governors of Coahuila and New Leon to urge their national Government to adjust the frontier difficulty with the United States in an amicable manlier.
