That Strike.—The night employees of the Eastern Railroad deny that they are on a strike. They say that they are still in the employ of the company, the Superintendent having refus ed to make out their time-bills. They claim that justice to themselves aud a regard for the safety of passengers on the trains require that conductors, engineers, brakemen, &c., should not he overworked and compelled to attempt the discharge of their duties while nearly worn out with excessive labor. In regard to the statement imputed to Mr. Hatch, that the trains would ho run regularly though every employee should drop dead at his post, they say they do not doubt it, for incompetent men will be em ployed rather than the. trains should stop. They deny that men fiom other roads have been em ployed. Rcefianism in Deebino.—Tlie other after noon a partj' of ruffians called at the Brewer House apparently sober. On leaving they were not onlydrunk, but disorderly aud cruel, beating andrunuing tlieirliorses up and down tbe steep bills between the “Brewer” and the “Brighton House” at fearful speed, exhibiting their bottles and vociferously proclaiming where they were filled. At last one fell out and the wheels of the carriage passed over him. He was helped in, the bottle taken from him,and then driven to his home in Saccarappa. On the road from Stroudwater to Scarboro Corner, two of them alighted from their car riage, and pursued a middle-aged woman. She escaping by jumping out of a back window and secreting herself till they left. A Fortunate Ladv.—Last evening a lady discovered, on entering City Hall, that one of her gold bracelets was gone. She immediately retraced her steps along llm route she came from home by, and when in front of Lowell’s jew elry store, on Congress street, she saw some thing glistening in the gutter, and on picking it up recognizee her bracelet. It is a little sin gular that it should lie there for nearly an hour right under the feet of the crowds of people constantly passing, and not be secu.

Though this popular institution is really lo cated in the town of Deering it still hears the old name. Yesterday was a lovely day for the closing exercises of the graduating class. A large gathering of relatives, a'.umni and friends filled the beautiful little church where the com mencement exercises took place.

The band then played a selection, after which the Rev. W. E. Gibbs of Congress Square Church, delivered an able and eloquent oration, of which the following is an abstract: At the conclusion of the oration, Mrs. Eliza beth Akers Allen—Florence Percy—delivered | her new poem. As Mrs. Allen has arranged to publish the poem comp'ete in Scribner’s Monthly, she re quested the reporters of the city papers to re frain from publishing any extracts from the poem, which request as an act of courtesy to the gifted poetess we obey. Last evening there was a reunion of the past and present graduates, and to-day a grand ex cursion will be made-to tlie islauds in the ex cellent and favorite steamer Gazelle. The term at Westbrook Seminary closes with 190 pupils in attendance. Commercial Street R. R. Crossing. Mr. Editor,—To such of your correspond ents as enquired whether the Boston and Maine Railroad propose to cross Commercial Street at three different localities, a little reflection would have saved the trouble of asking and have suggested at once the following answers, viz: . 1st. The Boston and Maine Railroad can desire a crossing ou’y for the purpose of connecting with their wharf properly, and with the Grand Trunk Railway and through them with the other wharves of the city, and therefore do not need three crossings. 2nd. The Boston and Maine Railroad have no special privileges, nor any not given them by the general laws of the State; and therefore cannot cross without the consent of the municipal officers of Portland, and then only upon such terms and conditions as such officers may prescribe. 3d. After the great expense the Boston and Maine Railroad have incurred in this city to avoid grade cross ings, it is not to be supposed they will now un necessarily seek them. From the time the above named Railroad commenced their extension towards Portland, it must have been clear to them and to onr cit izens, that the interests, both of tlie Railroad and its customers here, required the Rail road should reach tlie wharf property on the south side of Commercial Street. Precisely how the railroad should reach it and atwiiat point, of course could not be made certain until the enterprise was somewhat ad vanced. property on the south side of the street secured, and the practical relations of matters so far developed as to enable tlie Railroad and Municipal authorities to cooperite in meeting the necessities of business with the least detri ment to other iutere«ts on tlie street. The light of the Railroad to locate tlieir line, .as they were advised, expired Feb. 17, 1872. For the purpose, among others, of having time to adjust properly this very matter, the Corpor ation applied to the Legislature for an exten sion of tlie time of location. This request was one which liad never before been refused to any railroad while actually in process of coostrction as this one then was; and yet, the most powerful railroad lobby ever organized in Maine, and which was so pow :rful that, this last ses sion it was able to give tlie Eastern and Maine Central Railroads a possible right to appropri ate the streets of Portlaud, without her con sent, and in tlie face of her remonstrances, de feated the requested legislation, and did this so late in February, 1872, that the Boston anil Maine Railroad were compelled forthwith to make so many locations across Commercial street, as would enable them to choose with consent of the Mumoipa! authorities the route which might thereafter be shown necessary by future purchases of wharf property or other contingencies. Now, having obtained Smith’s wharf they de sire to reacli it aed at the same time make the Grand Trunk connection, and their petition for leave to do this, is pending before the Mayor aad Aldermen. very resjectfully, William L. Putnam. Mann’s Reactionary Lifter.—We visited this novel and newly patented machine yesterj day at the room of J. H Gaubert, Flueut Block. We entered the room a skeptic aud left a firm believer in his method of treatment. The machine is a little affair, aud consists of a sSties of splendidly adjusted fulerums. The manner of using it is simple,easy and—delight ful. Every muscle in the body is gently exer cised and one is surprised to find that he has really lifted 250 or 300 pounds. Ladies can al so exercies without change of garments. We advise all who desire a gentle aud thorough exercise which will move every muscle in the body in ten or fifteen minutes, to give Mr. Gau bert a call. Statf. Street Concert.—We would say for the benefit of our young friends who do not quite understand about the fioral concert on the “Fourth” that there will be no procession, but when the hour arrives the singers will be in their places on the stage, which will be prepar ed for them bcueath the beautiful elms near the State street church. Each one will be fur nished witli a flag at the lilst rehearsal before the concert. Remcml>er the firs', rehearsal Saturday (June 21st) in City lfall, at 2J o’clock. Tickets will be distributed as soon as the chorus is formed, efter which, no new ones will be added. Vale Tonic.—In all the years to come the word “tonic” will be a pleasant word for us to write on account of the associations which have environed it during Fair week. The paper has not lived a long life, hut it has been a merfy one, and its editresses retire from tlieironerous positions rich in many amusing experiences. For the kind words which they have been pleased to bestow upon.tlie Press, we are real ly grateful. One lias reason to be proud of a compliment from a paper that has run lip a cir culation of 1000 on the second day of its exis tence. Hospital Fair. — NINTH DAY. Yesterday the attendance at the halls was nndiniiniahed. Expressions of regret were heard on all sides that the hair which has been such a splendid success, must now be brought to a close. The committee have already yielded to the popular demand and will continue the Fair one day longer than originally contem plated. Last evening hundreds who were pres ent at the opeuing visited the hall in order to tlx more deeply upon their memories the most beautiful exhibition ever vouchsafed to the citi zens of Portlaud. in every department the Fair has been a grand success. This is unquestionably due to the sagacious manner in whiclf the whole man agement has been conducted. The Executive Committee consists of some of the ablest and most successful business men of our city. Gen tlemen who have had large experience in busi ness enterprises, involving vast interests. It was in the hands of these gentlemen that the responsibility of raising .$40,000 to complete the Maine State General Hospital was intrusted. They gave to this work the same energy, thought and personal attention they had been accustomed to devote to their own private busi ness. The whole management of the Fair lias been conducted upon the strictest business principles, and just here lies the secret of its success. The thanks of the whole State are due to these gentlemen for the assured comple tion of the State’s noblest charity.

A Large and Enthusiastic Assem bly. NOMINATION OF HON. NELSON DING LET. A LIVE PLATFORM. [Special Dispatch to the Press.] Bangor, June 19.—The State Convention to day was unquestionally one of the largest, most harmonious and enthusiastic ever held by the party in the State. A long time before the as sembling of the Convention, the hall was filled with delegates. The Convention was called to order by Hon. IVm. P. Frye, acting chairman of the State Committee. Rev. Mr. Goodenough offered prayer. Mr. Frye, iu behalf of the State Committee, nominated Hon. Eugene Hale of Ellsworth for temporary chairman of the Convention. Mr. Hale was received with lively demonstrations of applause, aud on being introduced spoke as follows: Speech of Han. Eugene Unle. Gentlemen of the Convention:—l thank you fof the honor that you have placed upon me.— To preside over a Convention of Maine Repub licans, aud such a Convention as I now see be fore me, is no light distinction. You represent the parly that for seventeen unbroken years has borne sway in the State of Maine, and through all the clamor of abuse aud the cry of corrup tion which havo ever been shouted by its adver saries—a cry never louder than in the last two years—this party has elected eight Governors, upon not one of whose reputations is a stain of corruption. And in the seventeen Legislatures that have marked its duration of power, no one has never heard of one man being bought or sold. It is a bright record. Let us keep it uu dimmed. You, gentlemen, represent the achievements of the past and the hopes of the future. A free Republic witli every bond riven,an emanci pated race, a crushed rebellion, a reconstructed Union, a uatioual credit, have all been laurels laid at the feet of this party, upon whose shoul ders lias always rested more sublime duty than has ever fell before on a political organization. Last fall the American people passed on this illustrions record and approved it.. But, gen tlemen, when the country gave a new lease of power to the Republican party, it looked to the future as well as the past. There is work yet to do. Social and political order is not wholly given to the South. It were folly to say other wise. No party cau establish that order oxeept ours. It will not do to give up the task to the men who swept whole States into revolt, and conquered on the battle field, only await a po litical tide to re establish their fortunes and to enable thorn to take vegeance on the new order of men who have come up since the war end ed. I am free to own that I am sick of some of the carpet-bag governments. It does not follow that I would welcome unrepentant reb els in their place. If Louisiana has no settled government before next winter, I want to see thp Republican party, through its President and its Congress, take that harrassed State iu charge for the time being, to give its citizens a free election, and then, whichever ticket is fair ly elected, 1 want a Republican administration to stand by it with the whole power of the gov ernment. There are plundering raids organized on the Treasury and the Republican party must see that they arc defeated. The south is filled with claims like that forrefunding the cotton tax, which would take 860,000,000 of good money, and the Democratic party always vote in a body for all such claims. Moreover, there are new matters on the horizon—questions which touch the purity of legislation and ot Legislative bodies are coming up. The simple days of the Fathers sometimes seem to he wholly passed away. Congress and our State Legislature are too much given to private legislation, in which the public good is forgotten. Ill this great privileges arc besought and grauted, great mo nopolies are established and an irresponsible and unscrupulous lobby is built up, which.while it has little influence compared with what it claims, yet fills the ante-roomsand corridors of every legislative hall ir, the land, corrupting the atmosphere, disgusting the observant peo ple aud bring disrepute on legislative bodies. It is a growing evil and the Republican party must check it. Another thing,—I am not here to rail at cor porations, but they must remember that they exist by the will of the people and that when, as iu the case of railroads engaged in the transportation for the public, they oppress by extortiouate rates and coinhius with each other to prevent competition, the people will surely bring them to a reckoning day. Tiie Republi can party must set itself to remedy these griev ances, and I have the faith to believe that it will do it. Last winter in the person of one of Maine’s foremost public men—the Speaker of the House of Representatives—this party insti tued and then carried through an investigation into the Credit Mobilier fraud, a transaction that involved the good name and fame of some men who had stood high in party couucil. There was no faltering, no attempt to screen because of party. Tlie lance and the probe were pitilessly used and the world to-day j knows that the great scandal tarnished tlie 1 fame of men iu botli parties and that a Repub lican Congress deemed investigation for truth’s sake better than concealmeut for party’s sake. (A Delegate—What about the salary grab?) A gentleman asks about the salary bill. That bill would never have passed but for the rally of Democracy on the final vote in the House under the head of Mr.Randall of Pennsylvania.

If I were rendering account to my constituents of the Fifth District. I should he glad to go in to it more fully.

Nelson Dingley, jil, of Lewiston, was declared the unanimous nominee of the party for Governor. Mr. Dingley was notified of the action of the Convention, aud upon invi tation came before it and accepted the nomina tion in tlie following speech: Speech of Hon. Nelson Dingley, Jr. Mr. President, and Gentlemen of the Conven tion:—For tlie distinguished mark of confi dence, which, as I am informed liy your Com mittee, this convention lias conferred upon me, I tender you my sincere thanks. 1 accept the nomination with which you have honored me, witli a due appreciation of tlie regard which it implies, aud as I trust with a deep sense of the obligations and responsibilities which it may impose. In responding to your call it is to me an inspliiug assurance that I shall receive the generous support and cordial cooperation, not only of the members of this large Convention, but also of tlie teus of thousands of noble men whe compose the great Republican party, which, for more than a decade in the nation, and more than sixteen years in tlie State, lias borne itself so grandly and so successfully amid perils and trials such as no nation ever before encountered. The record of the triumphant manner iu which the Republican party of the Stale and nation has met tlie grave responsibil ities of tlie past forms a glorious chapter iu tlie history of the Republic It is aj record which may well entitle jLmot only to the gratitude but also to tlie confidence of the people, as it completes the work of national defence and restoration so successfully carried on aud moves forward to grasp tlie questions of the present and the future. The platform of principles unanimously adopted by the Convention, as I am informed by your Committee, shows that tlie Republi cans of Maine are as steadfast in their devo tion to justice and equal rights, aud as prompt to proclaim tile right and rebuke tlie wrong as ill tlie earlier days of its history No higher proof of the claim of any political party to con tinued confidence and support can be given than that offered when itpromptly rebukes anything which seems to be improper iu the official con duct of those professing lo be friends,and takes the lead not only iu proclaiming riglrt princi ples, but also iu declaring that no wrong meas ure can receive any support at its hands. I most earnestly join with you in condemna tion of such flagrant disregard of the obligations of public faith and virtue, as was some mouths since shown by the officials of the chief com mercial city of the Union, and more recently in a less extensive but not less dangerens manner by fitch members of Congress as accepted an interest iu Credit Mobilier stock or dividends after they had reason to suppose that it was in tended to influence their votes for legislation favoring the corporation at tlie expense of tlie natio- s, l most heartily approve of the earnest and unevnivocal manner in whicli you have re buked the action of the Iato Congress on tho salary measure and demanded its prompt re peal. This measure I can hut regard as wrong ill principles aud dangerous in practice, and as invo’ving such a breacli of faith as would make it a pernicious precedent and an evil example if it should not be promptly repealed, It i*with me a deep an! abiding conviction that national safety is to be assured only by tlie preservation of public virtue and integrity, and that the se cret of national compactness is in nationaleon scienc". national affection aud national faith in moral ideas. I'desire to express my concurrence in tiie other features of your platform of principles, aud especially in your declaration in favor of tlie utmost economy consistent with a wise public policy, in both State and national ad ministration. The careful observer of the ten dencies to extravagance which is manifest in all classes, can hut recognize the fact that economy is the one word which needs to lie everywhere proclaimed and practiced iu private as well as public circles. I can hut indicate my earnest approval of your views of the ne cessity of pursuing such a State policy as will promote tlie development of our valuable re sources atnl unrivalled waterpower, and give a new inpetus to our mechanical, maritime and agricultural interests It is eminently wise and statesmanlike to adopt such measures as will opeu remunerative home markets to our farmers, for agricultural pur suits are the basis of material prosperity and best calculated to foster those habits which conduce to tho highest interests of a State. We may well indulge the hope that through sucli a policy Maine will become as she may, aud as I hr oily believe she is destined to be, one of the most prosperous States of the Union. Gentle men. thanking you again for the honor confer red upon me, it will be my pleasure as well as my duty to co-operate with you atul all others concurring iu theso views in .all honorable means to promote the triumph of the principles which you have enunciated, and to advance the interests of our beloved State. Upon tho conclusion of Mr. Dingley’s re marks there were loud calls for Congressman Frye, who addressed the Convention in his elo quent manner, commanding the close attention of the crowded hall and receiving marked de monstrations of applause. Ife spoke of tho necessity of better and wiser legislation. In referring to the salary steal, lie said that the Maine delgation in Congress would accept the voice of the Convention iu the light of instruc tions, and pledged the vote aud influence of that delegation to secure its unconditional re peal. He defended the action of the President in approving tlio appropriationlbill, containing the salary increase of Congressmen, on the ground that the constitution empowers Con’ gress to regulate the pay of its members, aud that in view of this he had no right to veto the bill. Tlie people wliose servants Congressmen are have tlie power to veto the bill aud will do it. The voice of the Republicans of Maine will be heard throughout the country. The Committee on Resolutions reported the following platform, which was adopted amid vigorous acclamations: Resolved, That tlie principles of the Repub lican party as heretofore expressed iu its con ventions, are re-affirmed: it is declared that events have proved that their practical enforce ment is essential to the welfare of tlie country and the maintenance of the interests, rights and liberties of the people. Resolved, That in view of the fact that tho Republican party has so met the vital i- sues of Hie past twelve years as to secure tlie support of i vast preponderance of the patriotism ami in telligence of the nation, it has fairly won tor itself the right to tlie title of being the true Reform Party of the country. .... , Resolved, That the Republicans of Maine de mand at tlie hands of those they have chosen to conduct the affairs of the Nation and -state rigid ccououiy, to tho end. that taxes may lo reduced as rapidly a* consistent with good ^Resolved* That this Convention, in behalf of die Republicans of Maine, declares its unquali Sed condemnation of the recent action of Con gress increasing the salariesof its members and nakin- its provisions retro-active, as uncalled or, unpatriotic, and In gross violation of the most emphatic pledges of the test National donventinn to the country; and it demands of nfr Maine delegation to use every effort to se kctso diiaSf! f I"1 unconditional repeal of an o the p^ple 'f CoDsres3 aluI josHy “'lions a^iinst V|'l*’ -^at this Convention protests a„.unst the granting of another acre of the public domain to railroad or other corporations and we futaher declare against any grant of the national credit for, or national participation in the building of canals or railroads, believin'' that the direct tendency of that policy is to ward prodigality and corruption. - Resolved, That as “all power is inherent in the people,’’ and the government of the people ts fortlie people,their rights and powers are par- j aniou.it to those of any creature that exists by its pleasure; we therefore declare that it is the duty of the Legislature to promptly apply a remedy to all abuses, discriminations and ex tortions of transportation companies, and to make them subservient to the best interests of tlie State. Resolved, That we heartily applaud tlie ac tive measures of the lute Congress in ferreting out and exposing eorruptio i, and demand pure otiioial conduct and the punishment of unfaith ful men, who, having betrayed the confidence freely extended to them, shall not be shielded, iruni the disgrace of their acts by any partisan ship of ours; and wo denounce all Credit Mo* bilier transactions, whatever be their form. Resolved, that the Republican party of Maine heartily endorse all meusurss that tend to in crease the real prosperity of the people, to de velopc the resources of the State, and elevate the standard of intelligence and morality among the people. Resolved, That the practice of loading the appropriation bills essential to the support of the government, w ith objectionable legislation in the shape of amendments, towards the close of the session, is a prolific source of abuse ami fraud upon the people, and its reform is urgent ly demanded. Resolved, That we recognize as a growing evil that should be uprooted, the increase of private legislation both in the State Legisla tures and the National Congress, consuming time that should be given to purely public inter ests, building up thereby, overgrowu corpora tions and monopolies, and giving rise to loobies which tend to bring reproach on both National and S afco legislation. Resolved—That the thanks of the people of | Maine are duo to Hon. Sidney Pcrhain tor the i faithfulness and ability w’ith which he has till- j ed the Executive Chair for the last three years, ! and further: Resolved—That this Convention presents to j the people the Hon. Nelson Dingley, Jr., as a : i gentleman of unspotted reputation, distinguish ed by iiis service in the public affairs of our State, and capable of filling tlie Executive Chair with the wisdom and ability demanded by tlio first office in the State. On the w hole the Convention was in every re | spocta success; the resolutions are thoroughly ! alive, the short-comings of the party have been vigorously dealt with, and the make-up aud spirit of the meeting excellent. Since the or ganizationof the party no State Convention has ‘ been more successful, and in lew has there been so great an interest manifested in questions j thoroughly alive.

Y., June 19.—This after noon Judge Selden made a motion in tho case j of Mrs. Anthony fur a new trial upon the ground j of misdirection of the Judge in ordering a ver- j diet of guilty without submitting the case to the jury. The District Attorney replied, when the court in a briet of the argument of the counsel denied the motion, the District Attorney im mediately moved that judgement be pronounc ed upon the defendant. The court made tho usual enquiry of Miss Anthony it she baa any thing to say why sentence should not be pro nounced. Miss Anthony said she had a great many things to say, and declared that in her trial every principle of justice had been violat ed, that every right had been denied, that she had had no trial by her peers; that the court and jurors were her political superiors and not her peers and announced her determination to continue her labors till equality was obtained and was proceeding to discuss the question in volved in the case when she was interrupted by the court with the remark that these questions could not lie reviewed. Judge Hunt then said that the judgment of the court is that you pay a fine of 8100 and the costs of prosecution, and immediately added, “there is no order that you stand committed until the tine is paid,’1 and so the trial is ended. A motion for a new trial is to he made in the case of the inspectors to-morrow morning, on thd ground that Hall, one of the defendants, was absent during the trial. WASHINGTON.
