Edward Oxnard.—The death of Edward Oxnard, which occurred at his residence in this city at 8 o’clock Saturday morning, was not a surprise to oar community, for he had been iu failing health for a long time. Mr. Oxnard was born in this city July 13, 1791. and was cousequently nearly 82 years of age at the time of his death. With bis brother William he went into the dry goods business on Middle street sixty years ago. Thirty years af ter they engaged iu navigation, and built ships for the cotton trade.

Eastern Cemetery.—A general renovation has taken place at the Eastern Cemetery. The grass has been cut, the hedges and shiubbety trimmed, the headstones set straight and every thing made as attractive as the locality and its uses would permit. It is now a fitting spot for the last resting place of so many of Portland’s citizens. The work has been under the Super intendence of Mr. J. S. Gould, to whose care and taste we owe the excellent improvements which have been made. Alarm of Fire.—The alarm of fire from box 38 Saturday afternoon was caused by the burning of a wooden sidewalk and fence on Congress,near the corner of Carlcton st reet. The sidewalk led from the street to the residence of Mrs. Hezekiah Packard. The only damage done was to the planking. This was the first alarm that has ever been sounded from box 38, aud there was no apparent necessity of sound ing it then. Too Bad!—The young ladies are beginning to get rested from their arduous labors of the last two weeks, and are lamenting, with a woe too wild for tears, the close of the Fair. The deco rations of the floral pavilion and the fancy ta bles, and the jaunty costumes of the waiter gills made a superb and attractive setting for for their beauty. They find it hard work to come down to plain citizen’s clothes and citi zen’s duties. 1 Base Ball._The young Emeralds of the Port land Rolling Mills are again organized under the name ot Ligouia Base Ball Club, and the following otficerg have been chosen: President, Thomas McGinnis; Vice President, M. Burke; Secretary, J. Wilkinson; Treasurer, W. Jones; Captain, D. Jones; Field Director, W. Perkins SUNDAY SERVICES. STATE STREET. The sermon at State Street Congrcgationa'fist Church, yesterday, at the morning service, was delivered by Rev. Mr. Bissell of Winchester, Mass. Text, Romans /, “Paul the Servant of Jesus Christ,” The preacher traced the histo ry of the great apostle of the Gentiles,and show ed that the scene at Damascus was the key note to his whole life. His conversion changed his whole being, even bis name. Paul’s minis try was especially characterized by three things, namely: activity, boldness and dignity-. He was active because he saw so much to do in the service he had undertaken, and his whole great soul was roused with enthusiasm. e was bold because ho saw the great things jo was able to do, and to assist him to do; aud how little sin could avail against him in the long rnu. His ministry was a dignified one, because he was very sensitive for the glory of the Master: He was ready to suffer stripes and imprison ment as Paul, but wheu the houor of Christ was at stake, he would not break out of jail or be quietly withdrawn, but insisted upon having his conduct publicly justified. It is evident too that Paul thoroughly under stood his work, that he knew the requirements of his Master, and that he appreciated the im portance of his mission. We find him re ferring to the work of Christ, as “the glorious gospel of the gracious Lord.” A nature deepened by God’s grace was what made Paul’s life significant. We have our har bors dredged and dug out that the deep keeled ships may reach the shores. So we should have our hearts’and mi uds deepened that the freights of God’s grace may be unladen in large stores into our lives. NEW JERUSALEM CHURCH. Rev. Mr. Hayden preached his first sermon since his return, at the New Jerusalem church yesterday morning, taking as his text Mark iv; 26, 27, the parable of the sower. His discourse turned upon the union of divine and human forces iu the achievement of results. There arc two extremes, said the speaker; one is that of waiting with folded arms for the manifesta tion of God’s grace and power, the other is that of attempting to achieve all by one’s own powers, unaided by divine assistance. The golden mean lies between these two extremes. Man prepares the soil and plants the seed, but God gives the vegetative soul and sends the rain and the sunlight to nourish it The speak er then commented upon the limitation of our knowledge. We know that the seed shapes it self into the fruit, hut we know not how nor why. The sermon was onb of much power, abounding iu great wealth of illustration, and delivered with even more than usual fer vor. At the Sabbath School Mr. Hayden gave a brief account of the General Convention at Cincinnati, from which he has just • returned. Statistics show that the church throughout the country has increased in numbers and influence during the last year with greater rapidity than during any previous year. He spoke in high terms of Urbana University, Ohio, which is fast becoming a national denominational col lege. He said it was almost a Maine institu tion, Rev. Frank Sewall and Prof. Moses of Bath, being its leading officers, and many of its teachers being Maine men. FIRST PARISH. Rev. Mr. Buck exchanged with Rev. Dr. Hill yesterday morning, and preached a powerful I discourse at the First Parish church, selecting | as his text, Math. XVI—3, “the sigus of the times.” He spoke of the recent sermon by Beecher iu which he advocated the doctrine of final restoration, and of the succeeding ser mon, so different in character, delivered at the same church by Murray. Iu the discourse of Mr. Beecher the speaker saw the sigus of the times. It was au evidouce that the days of rigid adherence to the dead words of creeds were passing by, never to return any more. A spirit of broader charity was manifest,and henceforth a man will be judged by the spirit within him and by the fruit of his works, rather than by the creed which he holds. The speaker dwelt upon the doctrine of final restoration as proba ble, pleasing and consonant with our ideas of the goodness of God. He took occasion to speak in deprecatory terms of the Church Herald article on John Stuart Mill. Slllt.c.1 UAIVEKSALIST. Yesterday morning, a large congregation was in attendance. The services wore conducted by the Pastor, Itev. Geo. \V. Bickuell, who took for the text of his discourse, the words found in Gen. 3; 8, “Aud Adam and his wife hid themselves amongst the trees in the garden.” Adam commenced life in purity. He trans gressed. His conscience became aroused. He thought to hide from the warning voice. The result exhibited the folly of attempting to es cape the consequences of transgression. Yet thousands attempt the same experiment. They fail and always will fail The preacher went on iu a pointed manner to show how men per mit their consciences to exert an influence iu such directions, hut restrain them in others. He did not believe in having special consciences. Its full power should be exerted everywhere. He spoke iu plain terms of the baneful influ ence attending the sentiment too often in busi ness, that you must gain the dollar anyway. Fraud was fraud everywhere, and the man who indulged therein, like Adam, would desire to hide himself. Business must never swing away from honest, upright dealings. Allusion was also made to the “political ^conscience”— its trickery reviewed. Men might he honest everywhere else, but they deemed all fair in politics. This doctrine was earnestly combat ted. The demands of the age are for honora ble,straight-forward, able men. The victory of principle should alone he legarded. It is this sentiment that all is fair in politics, which leads to results so often disgraceful, aud the chief manipulators may see the time when they will gladly hide themselves, even as some ought to do to-day. He did not believe conscience was satisfied in religion where are simply understood the arti cles of creed—or was scrupuously exact iu all outward ceremonies. He did not believe in that semblance of religion which asked God’s blessing on the poor, aud then gave them shirts to make atja sixpence apiece,—nor that which prayed for the heathen in foreign lauds, and kept our own heathen out of our churches by high pew taxes. When conscience really gains its power—all such will seek to hide when goodness, aud trutli ami Christ pass by. Conscience must never he denied. We want it full and clear—should so live that under no cir cumstances shall we desire to conceal ourselves or our acts. Keep conscience clear in business, politics aud religion. God speaks to us through it when we err. Always listen to the voice. We shall never seek to hide, when God calls us, when oureonsciences'are clear, but we shall he prepared to rest iu the everlasting arms, trust ing anil happy as a child folded in its parents embrace. FREE STREET CHURCH. The pastor, Rev. Dr. Small, was absent yes terday, and his pulpit was supplied by Rev. Mr. Estes of Paris Hill. Mr. Estes preached a fine discourse from Rev. x: 1, 2. The subject was l very interesting. The cloud that was spoken of was explained as being a symbol of mystery, the raiubow as a promise, the open book as a revealmeDt of the promise. The Bible is as full of concealments as it is of revelations. God shows His power just as much iu the con cealment as in the revelation. CATHEDRAL OF THE CONCEPTION. Bishop Bacon delivered a sermon at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, his text being Luke 4; 1st to 10. It being the 28th anniversary of tile Pope’s ascension to the Seat of St. Peter, the thread of his sermon related to the papacy. The Bishop sa.d the Catholic Church being founded by u J h19 Al,08Ues’ "M the only true church. All governments must have a head ■ the Catholic Church was a government with Christ at its head. All other forms of govern ments may change, will change, have changed the Catholic church never lias changed and never will. The Pope, he said, receives his power di rectly from Jesus as also did his predecessors, consequently lie must be infallible. As a man he is liable to err, hut as Pope he cannot. The Church lias seen many bitter days; it has been harassed during eighteen centuries, and will he until the end of time, hut at no time iu her his tory lias she been so troubled as at the present. The Pope lias during the last three years been despoiled of the possessions which the church has held for twelve ceuturies,—possessions which are absolutely necessary for him to have. He is now thrown upon the benevolence of the catholic people throughout the world. MARKET SQUARE. The usual open air meeting, holilen under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., took place in Mar ket Square last evening, ltev. Mr. Williams, of Plymouth church, conducting the exercises. Prayer, singing and exhortations made up the programme. The attendance was good. The interest in these meetings seems to be on the increase, and we trust they will be continned. We would suggest, however, that they be hold en either at an earlier or later hour, as at six o’clock most people are busily engaged.

The pastor, Dr. Shailer. remarked that he had prepared an address to deliver, but on the whole be thought it best to talk to them instead He then proceeded to discourse of the childhood of Jesus, drawing therefrom lessons of charity, of meekness, of earnestness, and of wisdom, for the benefit of the children. iThcre has al ways been a great desire among men to see the God of their worship. The great cry of the He brews was to see their God.He deigned to reveal himself in the form of man, and to become as a little child; and while a child he set a shining example for the children of all time to come. EVENING EXERCISES. In the evening, the appearance on entering the church was very line. The main audience room, as well as the galleries on either side, were filled to repletion.
