THE PRESS. WEDNESDAY MORNING,JUNE 26,1878. FOR GOVERNOR, NELSON DINGLEY. JR., OF LEWISTON. EvEttv regular attache of the Press la furnished with a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and bote managers will confer a favor upon ns by demanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our Journal, as we have information that several “bum mers" are Reeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas sively, a party to such fraud We do not read anonymous letters and communi cations. The name and address of the writer are in all cases indispensab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W-* cannot undertake to return or reserve com- : municatious that are not used. « The Collegiate Crop. During the next four weeks the colleges of the country will hold their annual commence ments and turn out into the world’s market their annual crop of young men. In quanti ty the yield will doubtless be about the same as usual and the quality no more wonderful, unless we accept the expectations of the ycung men themselves, in which case it will be the most brillunt and successful that the world has ever known. Of all the young men in the country, those who can write class of '73 after their names arc to-day the most hopeful. * The future upon which they lift their eyes is rosy hued. The drouth, the threatened short crop, the depressed lumber market, the dark ways of Wall street that make havoc with le gitimate business, the greed of monopoly and ■peculation that infuses stagnation into use ful industry and deadens enterprise, the hum drum lives of thousands of the older sons of their alma mater in the sharp struggle for bread, nor even the advancing cholera, give the slightest tinge of the sombre to their outlook. Nevertheless candor compels us to state, that there is the most indubitable proof that there has been just such a collegiate crop put upon the market in each of the past fifty or seventy-five years. Doubtless the graduates of 1873 will have the same unexpected revelations. The bril liant man who has carried everything before him in college and counts upon the full tide of success in life will in a few years be found toiling for bread in some pursuit that sug gests anything but classics. The talented young man who has been eloquent in the col lege society debates will not be found among the Websters, but in some quiet country vil lage, somewhat seedy, and eagerly looking after such scrip as he can get by making jus tice writs. The ready fellow who could dash off sparkling essays and poetical effu sions will possibly earn his bread by reporting for the daily paper or be driven to such des peration that he will write stories for the New York Gusher. The fellow who took the prize for the best written essay last fall, in four years may have learned that the world does not invest largely in that literary commodity and may become a successful teacher or, the victim of hard fortune, a copying clerk or much worse in the departmental tread-mill at Washington. The young man who in his day dreams outshone Beecher and Chapin will be con tent to break the bread of life to a rural flock—and may he do it faithfully. The ele gant man of the class if he returns to meet his class at the end of three years may possi bly confess that he is making wealth as the owner of some usefUl, but as many young men foolishly think, vulgar patent right. It may be a car-coupling, a rat-trap, a washing machine, or lucky composition for blacking boots. The butt of the class—the fellow of rough exterior and the stranger of the tailor and boot-maker in ten years may turn up as the member of Congress from the last new state of the West. May his hands be clean of jobbery and his heart as free from guile as it was when he left his verdant hills. The young men who graduate this year, like many of those who have preceded them must not hope to secure conspicuous or hon orable or lucrative positions at once or per haps at all. The statement will possibly be unwelcome; but however brilliant they may be, the country has not a first class mis sion for every one who would like it. There are, however, thousands of places where they may be useful and obtain very good bread by vory hard and common place labor. There never was greater need for liberally educated men than at the present time. There is a deal of bard work to do. There is not much glory in it nor much fame to be achieved in doing it, but the best interests of the country require it and it is the duty of the liberally educated man to roll up his sleeves and go in to it. In this practical business, let us expect much fiom the collegiate crop of 1873. The attention of scientific men having been called to the increasing frequency of sun strokes during the last few years, some of them are of the opinion that the growing prevalence of the use of iced drinks may he the cause. The use of of cold drinks produc es congestion, for when the system is heated only moderately, the cold liquid stimulates circulation to such a rapidity, that it is dan gerous, and has actually caused congestion of the brain. A German experimenter took some dogs, produced in them a strong artifi cial thirst, and allowed them to drink all they wanted of ice water. The result established the opinion he held, snd proved the evil of excessive indulgence In cold drinks. The Springfield Republican is a model newspaper and we trust it will allow us the privilege of continuing an exchange, despite the spiteful act o( the last Congress; but once in a while it makes a mistake and on rare oc casions does the thing thoroughly as will be seen by the following: LYNCH LAW IN MAINE. George Fields, a negro, ravished Lizzie Koch, a young German girl, near Augusta, Me., Sat urday. Fields was soon arrested by the sheriff near Labac, and taken to Augusta, where he was hanged by a mob. Our State capital denies the charge; indeed never thought of it. The trustees of the Prostetant Espiscopal Theological School at Cambridge Mass., have declined to accept the donation of $100,000 proffered by Mr. Nathan Matthews on the condition that the board of management be so recognized as to contain the high and low churchmen. Mr. Matthews in his communi cation says that he wants to put this disturb iug question in the Episcopal church where it can cause no misunderstanding to which the trustees reply that they do not desire to introduce the matter at all. That able and thoughtful journal, the Boston Pitot, takes decided grounds against the formation of the proposed “Irish Union” at Cleveland, next month. It declares that the Irishman who would proscribe a native American, and the native American who would proscribe an Irishman, are guilty of the same crime against the principles of the Constitution. But the Irishman is guilty of more than the other. When he joins a secret society, he is recreant to his religion; when he joins a proscriptive society, he is recreant to his citizenship. The report that Mr. 8chultz has resigned the charge of the American department of the Vienna Exposition, was premature. It is said by competent authority, that this distin guished New Yorker has shown wonderful tact and energy in the discharge of the duties that were thrust upon him, and that to his executive ability, is largely due the great cred it that the United States will receive from the exhibition. Veby unwelcome to the sorely afflicted in surance companies must be the reports of ex tensive fires in all parts of the country. They are not yet of sufficient amount to cripple any of our strong companies, but if the drouth continues the aggiegation of compar atively small losses will make serious inroads intd prospective dividends, a game which has already been played twice too often. In less than one week the fiscal year of the government closes, and thus far our ex ports have amounted in currency value to $203,028,638. Last year for a similar period they were $219,764,270, showing an increase of $43,764,270, or in gold $88,055,900, while the increase of imports exclusive of specie is $2,515,958 over last year. The opposition papers are very much chagrined because the Republicans of Maine declared themselves so emphatically on the Credit Mobilier and salary questions. In the face of the expressions of which this is a sam ple, they cannot make any capital, and they do not conceal their disgust. But it is a way the Republican party has of speaking to suit itself, and not its enemies.— [Albany Evening Journal._____ Elsewhere will be found some account of a murder in the poor house at Cornville, by poisoning, last week, Maine is rivalling New York city in this species of crime. Shore Fisheries or New England—Grad ual Decrease of their Productiveness.—Professor Baird, United States Commissioner of Fish and Fisheries, states the following conclusion* from his investigations in New England waters in 1871 and 1872: That the diminution of food fishes along the south coast of New England is substantiated; that the shore fisheries have been gradually decreasing for twenty years; that by 1871 traps and pounds had taken the place of hook and line in all successful fishing; that hluefish are decreasing; that the period of decrease of shore fisheries is synchronal with the time during which traps and pounds have been well established; that In 1872 the decrease was so great as to diminish tlfe profits of traps; that this decrease is due to pounds and weirs, and to the ravages of hluefish upon spawning fish; that the remedy is to regulate the action of the weirs during the spawning season, pro hibiting their use from Friday night until Mon day morning of each week of the spawning season. Prof. Baird adds: “I am not prepared to advocate the abolition of traps and pounds, as without them it would probably be extreme ly difficult to furnish fish in sufficient quantities to -meet the present and increasing demand of the country, aud they also perform an import ant service in the capture of bait.” Professor Baird leaves this week to extend his observa tions along the coast of Maine. A Young Man Who Wants His Life In jured.—A young man from a New Brunswick city, who had been visiting in Milwaukee, Wis., recently passed though Bangor on his way home with a fair daughter of the West to whom he had been engaged, and whom he was taking to his provincial home to show to his fond parents. He took her to his father’s house; thejfatlier looked coldly on her, and the young man quit the parental roof loudly pro testing that he would take his girl to the States, and after procuring the seivices of a clergyman proceed to win bread for himself -and the idol of his affection. But the fellow had been so influenced by the papa’s threats of disinherit ance, that he inwardly resolved to send the poor girl off to shirk for herself. In pursuance of thiB plan, he, on the arrival of the train at Vanceboro’, nchecked his baggage to his home, and waiting ou the platform till the last moment, he let the train go on and took the next train back. The girl, on discovering the cruel desertion of her lover took the matter coolly and with genuine grit. Slid told a con fidante whom she bad made on the train that, by-and-by, she would come back and put a re volver bullet through that young man’s heart if it cost her a life sentence in the provincial pe nitentiary. Treatment of Cholera.—A physician of New York, whose treatment in cholera has been very successful, writes to the Times of that city as follows: First let me say that I have no ‘stereotyped’ mode of practice, either for this or any other disease, which is so vauntingly put forth as al most oracular by many, who probably never saw a case of cholera; for it is well known that it assumes a variety of forms and requires a varied course to suit each individual case. One of the most powerful aids we possess is the steam-bath, and in the absence of proper ap paratus it can be effected by placing the patient in bed and wrapping him in woolen blankets, rung out of water as hot can be borne, and dry blankets over all. Cover the abdomen with a linseed poultice, bottles of hot water about him and at his feet; ice to quench thirst. Fric tions with dry flannels are useful, should they not produce spasms by too much motion of the patient; if so, they will do more harm than good and should be discontinued. Astringents, as tannin, and stimulants, as brandy, ether, am monia internally, aud moist heat externally is the proper course. President Grant on Profanity.—The N. Y. Evening Star has the following: “On Fri day, before leaving for Long Branch, the Prcs dent dropped in to see a well known citizen of Washington. During his stay the daughter of the gentleman referred to remarked that she had heard a pleasant thing about him (the Pres idext). The President inquired to what she re ferred. ‘I have been told by an ofBcer who served with you in the arm\,’ said she, ‘that he had been with you undei many trying circum stances, and that in no single instance, no mat ter what the provocation, bad he ever known you to make use of profane language. I was delighted to hear this, especially in view of the fact that profanity is said to be the rule, and not the (xception, among army officers. Will you excuse me, Mr. President, if I inquire what I heard is true.’ ‘It is, I believe,’ modestly re plied the President; ‘I have always regarded Iirofane language as unnecessary, to say the east, and as I am a man of few words 1 have never been able to understand the necessity for useless expressions of the character referred to.” The Geneva Award.—Several owners of vessels destroyed by rebel crnisers, have re cently applied for information relative to the disposition of the Geneva award. These appli cations are based npon the assumption that the process of distribution will begin immediately after the payment of the money by Great Brit ain in September next, and nave been made in consequence of the representations of claim agents. Such Is not the fact. The money will be invested in United States bonds, which will be kept as a special fund until Congress shall provide some means for the distribution. Sen ator Edmunds has stated that he intends to in troduce a bill which should obviate the necessi ty of middle-men. To the Point.—The Springfield Republican siys: ‘ The ghosts continue to walk in New York politics. Messrs. John Cochrane, Ethan Allen Waldo Hutchins and others, sign a call for a “Liberal Republican” conference at the St. Nicholas Hotel, June 2d. We said our say about these gentlemen, while they were still living; never with greater plainness and free dom, than during the recent canvass, when an honest man and a good cause were cursed with their ill-omened support. We have nothing to add—nor to take back. Now that they are dead, we find them for the first time, entirely harmless, and rather amusing. News aud Other Items.

The two had been occupying the same room in the poor house. Maxwell died very suddenly on Wednesday of last week—some conduct on the part of Dennis excited some suspicion, and upon examination a bottle near ly half filled with strychnine was found in his pocket Dennis was arrested and taken before Justice Liscomb, and after being arraigned fur ther examination was postponed for one week, and in the meantime the stomach and its con tents are to be examined, which will virtually decide the whole matter.

When the system begins to wilt under the effects of the first ‘‘heated term/’ it is obvious that it ought to be reinforced and sustained by wholesome stimu lation. To resort to the adulterated UquorB of com merce in such a crisis, as too many do, is the height ot infatuated folly. All such fiery stimulants have a sting. After the first effect has past away, than sting is felt. The reaction is terrible- The prostra tion of body and mind which ensues is more complete than before. But the operation of a medical tonic like Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters, in which extracts ot the rarest remedial herbs and roots are blended with the spirituous essence of rye, pure and undeflled is very different. No unpleasant reaction follows its use. It is a permanent, a perpetual fnvigorant, and there is no phase ot debility, indigestion, biliousness, nervousness or Intermittent fever which it will not speedily cure. SPECIAL NOTICES.

Stevens : Dear Sir—Among the many cures effected by the use of Vegetine, I have heard of none more satis factory than my own. I have been afflcted with Scrofula Salt Rheum for many years, inherited in the blood, making its appearauce on my whole body, bursting out in different pi ices, and painful beyond description. Six of the most popular purifiers which are advertised to cure Scrofula and like complaints, I have faithfully tried; but my disease was so deeply seated as to resist all. I laid my case before several prominent physicians, but nothing tended to alleviate. Finally, by the influence of friends, I consented to try Vegetine, commencing on the first of January last, and soon after 1 experienced a senable relief, and could feel it working in my system very differently from anything I had ever taken before, and at once discovered that it was accomplishing the object so earnestly desired. I continued on, following direc tions for three months, and the first .of April found me a well man; have passed through the not sum mer, and have continued to be free from any appear ance of it to the j resent time. My general health is excellent; and my recovery, of which I had about despaired, I ascribe entirely to the use of Vegetine. I could never have been con vinced of the marvellous result of this wonderful Vegetine under any other circumstances; but now I recommend every one to iry this inestimable reme dy, and that all is true as Is represented. 1 am a liv ing witness; and it will afford me great satisfaction to show the marks oi my disease, and converse on the merits of Vegetine, as none will dispute who owe it what I do. I will here mention of my child having a severe attack ot heart complaint, which Vegetine has en tirely cured, and shall always be happy to make Its virtues known within the lange of my influence. Yours, very respectfully. E. H. ITOUNG. Mr. Young has been in the employ of the Boston Herald during tho past eighteen years. Many can vouch for the above statement. REPORTS FROM APRACTICAL CHEM IST AND APOTHECARY. _ Boston, May 1,1871. Dear Sir—This is to certify that I have sold at re tail, sixty three doz. (756 bottles) of your Vegetine since April 12,1870, and can truly say that it has giv en the best satisfaction of any remedy, for the com plaints for which it is recommended, that I ever sold. Scarcely a day passes without some of my customers testifying to its merits on themselves or their lriends. I am personly cognizant of several cases of Scrofu lous Tumors being cured by Vegetine alone in this vicinity. Very respectfully yours, AI GILMAN, To H. R. Stevens, Esq. 468 Broadway. The conviction is in the public mind as well as in the medical profession, that the remedies supplied by the vegetable kingdom are more safe, more success ful, in the cure of disease, than mineral medicines. Vegetine is composed of roots, barks and herbs. It is perfectly safe to give to an infant. Do you need it? , Do not hesitate to try it. You will never re gret it. Vegetine is sold by all druggists.

Has 'been tested in every variety of climate, and by almost every nation known to Americans. It is the ^!'„S™°“p,ai:Lon and Inestimable friend of the missionary and the traveler, on the sea or land, and no one should travel on our Lakes or Rivers without Since the PAIN-KILLER was first intrnflnppd and met with such extensive sale, many jiSiSS' Reliefs, Panaceas, and other Remedies have been offered to the public, but not one of them has attain ed the truly enviable standing of the PAIN-KIL LER. Why Is This Sol It is because DAVIS’PAIN-KILLER is what it claims to be a Reliever of Paiu. Its merits are Unsurpassed. If you are suffering from INTERNAL PAIN, Twenty to Thirty Lrops in a Little Water will al almost instantly cure you. There is nothing to equal It for Colic, Cramps, Spasms, Heart-burn, Diarrhea, Dysentery, Flux, Wind in the Bowels, Sour Stomach, Dyspep sia, Sick Headache, Ac. In sections of the country where FEVEB AND AGUE Frvails, there is no remedy held in greater esteem. ersons traveling should keep it by them. A few drops, in water, will prevent sickness or bowel trouble from change of water. From foreign countries the calls for Pain-Killer are great. It is found to Cure Cholera when all other Remedies Fail. WHEN USED EXTERNALLY, AS A LINI MENT, nothing gives quicker ease in Bums, Cuts, Bruises, Sprains, Stings from Insects, and Scalds. It removes the fire, and the wound heals like ordin ary sores. Those suffering with RHEUMATISM, GOUT, or NEURALGIA, if not a nositive cuie, they find the Pain Killer gives them relief when no other remedy will. It gives instant relief from Aching Teeth. Every House-Keeper should keep it at hand, and apply it on the first attack of any Pain. It will give satisfactory relief, and save hours of suffering. Do not trifle wifh yourselves by testing untried remedies. Be sure you call for and get the genuine PAIN-KILLER, as many worthless nostrums are attempted to be sold on the great reputation of this valuable medicine. IOP*DirectionB accompany each bottle.
