Yesterday was the closing day of the Fair, and as was expectvd the day was occupied more for the delivery of goods sold and drawn in raffles the preceding daysjtlian for sales from the tables. Indeed, the tables were empty ex cept here and there where the committees were busy ticketing the few remaining articles for the grand closing raffle in the evening. The attendance in the evening was large and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves to the utmost. Those who had been fortunate at pre vious drawings were congratulated hv theii friends, especially the happy possessors of wax dolls and rag bahies, which by the way fell largely to single individuals of the male persua sion. The owners of blanks took their disap pointment good uaturedly. A large number of small articles were put up at the raffle in lots and were all disposed of. The following are [ the more important prizes given last evening: No. 5. model of steamer Clyde, ticket 183, some body in the tall; Waltham watch, ticket ltiti, A.

Spring of Danvers, Mass., through Sirs. L. O. Short, $50. The refreshment hall was not so well patrou ized since the change in the arrangements. The lady waiters proved a profitable attraction, and the contrast was marked from a bevy of beau tiful young ladies to the plain, business like ap pearance of the last two days. Providentially no accident has occurred to mar the harmony and pleasure of the occasion.

The Railroad* and the (lilt. Portland, June *20tli, 1873. Mu. Editor:—I have read with much care the communication in the Press of to-day from Mr. Putnam, in behalf of the B. & M. Railroad, upon the Commercial street question. It seems that Mr. Putnam, as attorney for the B, &. M., has felt it his duty to assail in a partisan spirit the Eastern and Maine Central railroads, and to forget that the B. & M. was the first to “organize a powerful lobby” in the State of Maine. That, however, has nothing to do with the queries which Mr. Putnam un dertakes to answer. Taking Mr. Putnam as authority, as doubtless he is, we may assume that the B. & M. proposes to cross Commercial street with but one track to reach Smith’s wharf, and make a connection with the Grand Trunk, and that the City Council have this proposition under consideration. Now let us hear from the Eastern and Maine Central; what do they propose to do in Com mercial street?' With a knowledge of what is proposed by the several roads, we shall get a clear comprehension of the situation and can meet the question without becoming the cham pions of either of tlie railroad companies. Portland will make no unjustifiable discrimin ation. Commercial Street. Democratic State Committee.—The Dem ocratic State Committee met at the Preble House last evening. Quite a number of distin guished gentlemen from various parts of the State were present. The following resolution was passed: Resolved, That the whole subject of the call . for a State Convention he referred to a commit tee consisting of S. D. Leavitt, James C. Madi gau and Alonzo Garcelon, with full power to act in the premises. The members of the consulting committee wore the air of.eheerfu 1 resignation character istic of mourners returning from a funeral. The project of doing away altogether with a convention was broached, but the opinion of the majority was in favor for the present of a policy of wise and masterly inactivity. Knights Templar Excursion.—The Sir Knights who are to go on the excursion to St. John, are reminded that the baggage will leave the Hall at half past ten precisely. Every Sir Kuiglit should he at the Hall at 11 o’clock promptly for dress-parade. As the special tiain must leave on the minute, it is of the utmost importance for all to he prompt, so that each man will know his place. The Sir Knights wiii leave the Hall at 11.30 and march to the depot through Middle, Congress and State streets. City Government.—A special meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldernnu was held at 11 1-2 oclock yesterday morning. The petitions of W. F. Murray to erect a wooden building on Washington street, and of W. C. Cobb to erect a private stable on Emery street were referred with power. An order was passed to build a sewer on Deeriug street. The bond of Charles Sampson as constable was approved. F. O. Bailey anil C. W. Allen were licensed as auc tioneers. That Strike Again.—We have received a note from a personal friend of Mr. Hatch de nying that he ever used the language imputed to him by the conductors and brakemen who have recently struck on the Eastern road. The language referred to is “That the trains would he run regularly though every cmplovee drop dead at his post.” Police Station.-AI the police station last night there were three drunks and one case of assault and battery. This latter case was of rather an aggravated character. A man named John Collins assaulted a young woman named Sarah I). Grott. The parties live on Middle street. How badly she is injured is not yet de termined. First Baptist Sabbath School.—The fif ty-sixth anniversary of this school will he held on the afternoon and evening of next Sunday. The exercises will consist of devotional ser vices, reports of officers, address by the pastor and others, singing, etc. This is a flourishing school under the charge of Mr. If. B. Ricker, and there will doubtless he a large attendance. A Heavy Wind.—Pearl street was visited yesterday forenoon by a gust of wind which though brief, was severe. Anchn trceeighteen inches in diaipeter, was broken down. This tree was planted years ago by Hon. Eliplialet Greely, ex-Mayor of Portland. It is said that the Maine State Magaziue, bearing the imprint of Portland and purporting to he published by Hallett &-,is really printed at Augusta by E. C. Allen & Co. Marginal Way—Learning that work on the now famous Marginal Way had been re commenced under the new contract with the Portland and Rochester Railroad Company, we took a stroll yesterday afternoon up 4N ashir.g ton street to the scene of operations, and gleam ed a few facts about the work, that may he of interest to our readers. There are two sections of the road uncompleted. The first is in “Back Cove,” between Washington street and the de pot. The second is between Washington street and the Grand Trunk bridge. The first section is being built of earth, at the rate of 400 cubic yards per day, All the dirt is taken by single horse teams from the northeast side of the hill and dumped at the foot of Washington street into cars and the cars run by theirown momen tum along the track to the spot where the con tents are needed. On the second section piles are being driven preparatory to filling in the earth. Fifty men, and thirty-six horse teams are employed besides the cars, only a half doz en of which are at present used. The men are under the charge of Richard Shanahan, sub contractor. Thomas Shanahan, jr., and Eu gene Mack are in charge of special departments. No machine is used for filling the carts. Five pairs of oxen do the plowing as the dirt is loosened in that way instead of by picks. It is expected that cars will be run from the Roches ter depot to the Grand Trunk depot within six ty days. Ex-Suprintendent of the Portland & Rochester Railroad, Thomas Quiinby, esq., has the general direction of the whole work. S.Camp Meeting Purchase.—The Commit tee in charge of the matter have decided to purchase the property'of J. Jainesou at Old Orchard Beach. The lot comprises thirty-five acres and encloses a fine grove. Engineers are already employed to lay the property out after the most approved styles. It will be called “Camp Grove and Seaside Summer Home.” We learn that the Boston & Maine Railroad Company offered the Camp Meeting Associa tion $.100 and ten cents for every ticket sold during the sessions of the meeting. This was considered a very liberal offer on their part. Railroad Fire.—The through express car on the Eastern bound Pullman train was found to be on fire near Winslow, at about four o’clock Friday morning. A large quantity of valuable packages of goods were destroyed and the car so badly damaged as to make it neces sary to leave it behind. The cause of the fire is unknown, but is supposed to have been caused by some material inside. Prof' Stearns.—This gentleman will give one of his unique eurertaiuments to-night at Army & Navy Union Hall. Their is no hum bug about the performance as the subjects are taken each evening from the audience and em brace a large number of well known gentlemen. yilNCELLAHEOIIl* NOTICES.

Consideration of the New Civil Service Rules by the Cnbiurt. Tlie Cabinet had under consideration to-day for several hours tlie subject of civil service re form. The modified rules, ten in number, having been approved, were promulgated this afternoon. One of them declared that while it'is not tlie purpose of tlie roles aud regula tions either to restrict tlie power of removal or to extend tlie teuue of service, such power will not be exercised arbitrarily, and therefore ap plications must not lie entertained by any au thority having the duty of Humiliation or ap pointment for tlie removal of any person in tlio civil service, nor will any person tie removed for tlie purpose of making a place for any other person. The following are extracts from the rales: Tlie grouping heretofore made for the Exe cutive Departments at Washington, is modified by striking out the words “female clerks, copy ists and counters at $000 a year,” these places being below the grade of clerkships of class one, selections may be made by tlie appointing power at their discretion from those reported competent, being at liberty to give tlie prefer ence to such as may be justly regarded as hav ing the highest claims to public consideration by reason of loss of support or of property, oc casioned by death, or disability of any person in the defence of tlie Union in war, or in other public service of the government. Applicants for appointment as cashiers of Collectors of Customs, Cashiers of Assistant Treasurers. Cashiers of Postmasters, Superintendents of Money Orders, divisions iu post offices and other custodians of large sums of public money, for whose fidelity another officer lias given olil-. cial bonds, may be appointed at discretion, but this rule shall not apply to any appoiutmeut to a position grouped below tlie grade of assistant teller. In cases of defalcation or embezzlement of public money or other emergency calling for immediate action where tlie public service would be materially injured unless tlie vacancy be promptly filled without resorting to the methods of selection and appointment prescrib ed by the rales and regulations, or where a va cancy happens at a place remote aud difficult of access, and the methods prescribed for till ing it cannot be applied without causing delay injurious to the public service, the appointment may be made at discretion; but this rule shall not apply to any place which is provided to be tilled under the rales of competitive examina tion. Be For the purpose of bringing the examina tions for civil service as near to the residences of those desiring to be examined as tlie appro appropriation at the command of tlie President will warrant, and for tlie further purpose of fa cilitating tlie making of selections for sucii ser

vice equally from tlie several portions of the Union, while at the same time preserving tlie principles of promoting as tested by fair com petition, it is provided that the States shall be grouped into five districts.. Tlie President will employ or designate a suitable person to be chief examiner, whose duty it will be, subject to the provisions of the civil service commis sion to promote uniformity in preparing for conducting, reporting and grading tlie examin ations by saiil board at .Washington, and to prepare for, attend, supervise and report the ex amination herein provided to be held elsewhere than at Washidgton. The district examina I tions sliall lie held not more than twice in any one year in the same district except, in Wash ington, where an examination may he held in respect of each department as frequently as tlie head of such department, subject to the ap proval of the President, may direct; and all persons so examined in Washington, wherever they may reside, sliall lie entered on tlie record of tlie person eligible for appointment equally examined elsewhere. Tlie report of the Civil Service Commission to Gen. Grant says, among other tilings, that it appears to be the unanimous opinion of those at the heads of tlie departments, that there lias been a decided mitigation, under the oper ation of such rules, of serious evils that before prevailed and steadily increased. Mere per sonal importunity and partizan intrigue have diminished in the same ratio; that individual merit and just rules for testing such merit havo been made tlie basis of appointments and pro motions. The application of these tests has been gradually extended as experience has seemed to warrant, aud in every ease with good results. The Commission is convinced that tlie success of civil service reform is to lie decided by the intelligent fidelity witii whicli its friends shall present its true methods to tlie popular judgment. It lias been their aim to recognize the light, which requires that a vic torious party should be able to name officers so far down tlie official scales as tlieir principles may be justly involved in fair and honest ad ministration. At tlie same time we have re sisted that pernicious theory wbieli insists that every clerk in public office, no matter bow sub ordinate or bow useful, sliall mingle as a partizan in every contest, and go out as a mat ter of course with tlie retiring head of the de partment. But tlie uew rules they submit will show that they do not regard tlie question of tlie proper duration of tenure of office or of clerkship as one with which civil service re form, as now inaugurated, lias any other than an indirect connection. Tlie more we have been brought into famil iarity with tlie practical bearings of tlie great principles of individual justice and national sanction of all true methods of improving the civil service, and the amplier have been our op portunities ot measuring the allegiance which such principles command from those whom the people placed at tlie head of their great affairs, the more profound is our impression of the iu e-timable value of the reform itself and of the solemn obligations of all its friends to leave no means untried during the best opportunity our generation has seen or may see to place that reform upon a sure foundation, and to trans mit it in healthy vigor as the greatest political blessing this generation can confer upon the generations to come.” (Signed,) Dorman B.

Philadelphia, June 20.—Two children, An nie Reagan aud Maggie Metray, aged five years, who have been missing since Wednesday, wore found this morning in a closed and empty house in the 25th Ward. One of the children was beyond human aid but the other recovered. Eater. Of the two children found in a closet this morning the one now dead was frightfully bruis ed black and blue, the marks being distinctly visible all over body, and liar lower extremeties were smeared with blood. Maggie Mulway was also bruised but not so severely. The facts thus far gathered give good grounds for suspicion that the person of Anna Reagan, if not both the children, was outraged, and that they were the victims of hellish design. Several parties residing in the neighborhood are under arrest. Midnight.—The excitement attending the finding of the children missing since Wednes day in a closet of an unoccupied house increas es. At the post-mortem it was clearly proven that the dead child had not been ravished. Slie died of suffocation. The stomach revealing the fact also that she had not eaten for 48 hours.
