(Plaintifi’s counsel discontinued as to the other defendants named in the writ.) On the 31st of last May, Edward McManus, with seven oth er workmen, carried a counter-limber weighing about eight hundred pounds, on to the stern stage of the “Samuel Skolfield,” a vessel of seventeen hun dred tons, then being built at Brunswick.

All the men were more or less injured. McManus died from his injuries the 2nd of June.

Amount sued for twenty thousand dollars. Argument for defense clOBed. Mr. Bradbury commences the closing argu ment for the plaintiff this (Tuesday) morning. Bradburys. Reed. Superior Court. APRIL CIVIL TERR, 1876-8YRONDS, J., PRE SIDING. Monday.—In the case of Cnnningham vs. Mc Quade to recover five thousand dollars for personal njuries sustained by reason of a collision between a wagon upon which plaintiff was a passenger and the defendant’s jigger, the jury rendered a verdict for the plaintiff for $350. Putnam for plaintiff. Strout & Holmes for defendant. Tho case of John Sutherland versus I. T. Wyer and James A. Arnold, an action on a breach of contract to recover $1500 salary, was called. The plaintiff says he made a contract with the de fendants, through the theatrical agency of Simmons & Wall, of New Fork, to play in the Portland Mus eum, as first old man, for $35 a week. He played as agreed until December 27th, 1875, when the whole company were called to the business office and were there informed by Mr. Wyer that business was dull, that he bad lost a great deal of money, and be found it necessary to reduce salaries one-third, and that those unwilling to accept the terms would receive full salary for that week and be discharged. There upon Sutherland, Curtis and Norris refused to ac cept the “cuts,” and were discharged on the 27th ot December. Complainant did play, however, until the 10th of January, at full salary, a week after his discharge. While playing in “Eileen Oge,” he was requested by the stage manager to return his part. He then went to New York and got an engagement at Booth’s for eight weeks from February 14th, at $25 a week, in character parts. The defence was, that the contracts between the actorB and the management provide that the actors shall conform to the rules and regulations of the theatre, and that among the rules the management reserve the right to discharge any actors who proved incompetent to fill the parts for which they are en gaged. For the plaintiff appeared himself, Mr. Curtis, Mr, Snyder and Mr. Noriis as witnesses. They testified, that in their opinion, Mr. Sutherland was up to the position ot ttrst old man, ana naa a gooa reputation in that line in the profession. Also to the conversa tion between the manager and Mr. Sutherland re lating to his discharge. For the defence, Mr. G' T. Ulmer, who succeeded Mr. Sutherland as first old man, aDd Alonzo Page, stage carpenter, were introduced. Mr. Ulmer said he engaged as first old man, but that be &as playing any part to accommodate, and that he did not cou sider Mr. Sutherland competent for first old man. Mr. Page testified to Mr. Sutherland’s lack of com petency, in bis opinion. I. T. Wyer, the defendant, denied that he told the company that those who did not accept the reduction would be discharged. He says he discharged Suth erland because he was incompetent for the part he engaged for; that he discovered soon after the season opened that Sutherland’s appearance, make-up and voice were againBt him aB an old man; that he neith er looked,talked nor aoted like an old man. Hale lor plaintifi. Howard & Cleaves lor defendant. Members of the bar are requested to take notice that the assignment of court cases for this term will be made from halt past nine to ten this (Tuesday) morning, aud that this term will be the last opportu nity to fry court cases before the session of the law court._ Brief Jottings. When the Odd Fellows move into their new quarters a new lodge and encampment will fee instituted. Before issuing papers to vessels in the future, the Collector of Customs will require prool that the name, and port to which she belongs, has been painted on the stern. A Mi«s Ann E. Libby of this city, appeared In the Boston police court last Saturday, tc testify against one George Gorham who stole a satchel from her. The trial was highly enter taining and the prisoner w.as bound over. It is rumored that Moody and Sankey are to visit Portland aud hold meetings at City Hall. The fog signal on Mananas Island has been separated from Monhegan Island Light Station and made a separate station. FraDk C. Adams, lately appointed first assistant at Monhegan, has been transferred and promoted to principal keeper at Mananas Island. Several oyster vessels in the harbor displayed their flags at half mast yesterday, out of re spect to the late^Iames Freeman. The steamer Falmouth, which has been uu dergoing repairs, is to go on the Halifax routi Saturday. . The late James Freeman had a policy o '310,000 on his life. The steamer Forest City goes on the Bosto route this evening. There was a large and intelligent audience : Allen Mission last evening to listen to the ver interesting lecture by E. Sands on Sunshim and a desire was expressed that the lectui might he repeated at City Hall. Important to Portland.—The Manufac turers’Union of Burlington bavo drawn np a memorial praying tbe President of tbe United ’ States to arrauge terms with the Dominion of Canada for the free use of the canals and in land waters of the two countries by the citizens . of either, and to make tbe construction of tbe > Caughuawaga ship canal a condition of tbe 1 agreement. This plan was recommended by the Senate Committee on Transportation two years ago, and again by the American Board of Transportation and Commerce, recently in session at Chicago. The proposed canal from the St. Lawrence to Lake Champlain is 29i miles long, with less than 25 feet of lockage, and can be built for 33.500,000, Upon its com pletion vessels of a thousand ton3 burden can load at Chicago, or other lake ports, and land wheat without breaking bulk, within two hun dred miles of Portland, having passed through less than sixty miles of taxed canal naviga tion, and at a reduction of nearly if not quite fifty per cent, of the freightage from the present rates, The reduction of the freight on the lumber from Michigan and Canada will be at least one dollar per thousand. The saving to New England in the cost of bringing the quantity of breadstuffs now transported by the railroads and tbe Erie canal, would repay tbe total cost of tbe canal every year. The enlargement of the Welland and the St. Law rence canals is now in active progress, and it is of the greatest importance to secure, at the earliest day possible, the opening of this route from the West, which will diminish tho land transit over the Portland and Ogdensburg railroad, by tbe whole distance from Swanton on Lake Champlain to Ogdensburg, 132 miles. The Vermont Central railroad made baste to get possession of the line from Lake Champ lain to Ogdensburg a few years ago, in order to preoccupy the route before the completion of the Portland road. The construction of the Caughuawaga canal would practically bring Ogdensburg to Swanton and make Portland a near neighbor. School Committee.—Tbe regular monthly meeting of the School Committee was held last evening. The board was all present with the exception of Messrs. Hill and Fobes. Messrs. Burgess and Chadwick, the Committee on Drawing and Penmauship, reported that the total expense to the city of the recent exhibition of the work done in those branches was $6.76. The next exhibition of the kind will doubtless require a muc'p larger room for the display of work properly and to accommo date the crowds attending it. Messrs. Libby and Fobes, Committee on Centennial Exhibit, reported that the usual semi-annual examination papers have been Deatly and cheaply bound at a trifling expense. Photographs of the North School house and the High School Building, and interior views of the Centre, Brackett, Park and High school buildings have been taken. Selections iiuui iuc .'jjcuiuuja ui Jicumuuouip auu uian ing in the different schools of all grades in separate portfolios; also framed specimens of original designs and copies, four from the North School and two each from the Centre, Brackett and Fourth Grammar schools, six frcm the Park street school—sixteen in all—to gether with a few drawing and writing books and special class work from the Primary and Grammar schools, make up the collection to be sent to the Centennial. A petition was received from a large number of persons interested in the Park street school house, asking that it be repaired and ventilated. The matter of building a new school building on Park street for the accommodation of the Grammar schools was also discussed. The matter was postponed. A beautifully executed plan of a Primary school room was presented by Mr. C. H. Kim ball, architect. The usual reports were made and accepted. Concert at Congress Street Church.—On Friday evening a fine concert is to be given at the Congress street M. E. church. The pro gramme is not yet arranged, but enough is made public to warrant a fine musical treat. The Misses Turner of Iowa, but formerly of this city, will appear in several selections. The friends of these young ladies will be glad to welcome them back to their native city. The Burlington Hawk Eye in speaking of the ap pearance of these young ladies in the vicinity of Boston, says: Our citizens who have often had the'pleasure of hearing the Misses Turner, of this city, in the Congregational choir and in several public entertainments, and who have experienced a pardonable degree of pride in their successful debut in eastern musical circles, will be pleased to learn that an additional interest, amounting to a kindly and personal enthusiasm has greet ed them in recent select concerts in Boston and vicinity. The young ladies have never hesitat ed to contribute their general efforts in every charitable enterprise of the past winter to aid the poor and needy, and it was but a just recog nition of their many good deeds when the Bun ker Hill Times says it refers “with pleasure to the announcement in another column of the testimonial concert to be given to the Misses Turner on the 28th inst. Their many acts of kindness in our midst bespeak most emphati cally the worthiness of the beneficiaries.and we gladly'hail the opportunity thus offered of sub stantially expressing our appreciation and en couragement.” Fine Carving.—Mr. Nahum Littlefield has just completed a figure head for a large ship building at Kennebunkport! for Capt. N. L. Thompson. The figure is something ont of the usual course, being a fine piece of artistic work. It is a female figure about seven feet in length. She is clad in a large loose gowD, and about her form is thrown a large ccarf, which she holds firmly in her left hand. Her right hand is holding a beautiful bouquet. Her feet are cov ered with button boots of modern style. Her head is well proportioned, and her hair is dress ed and arranged in modern style with the omis* sion of "crimps.” A large chain, to which is attached a locket, encircles her graceful neck, and beautiful ornaments hang from her ears. The expression of her face is something re markable, and to look at it one can scarcely imagine that it is nothing more than a block of wood. The position of the figure is easy and graceful. To Boston via Portland & Rochester — -Luc luuiauu ow Lhuuuoaici unci uu excellent and very convenient route to Boston and Lowell by their line. Passengers taking the 7.50 a. m. train make close connection at Nashua Junction with the express train for Lowell and Boston, arriving at Lowell at 12.15 p. m., (several minutes quicker than by any other route,) and at Boston at 1.15 p. in. Re turning, passengers leave Boston from the Bos ton & Lowell and Nashua station at 8 o’clock a. m., and 5 o’clock p. m., and arrive in Port land at 1.20 and 10,50 o’clock p. m. The train leaving Boston at 0 p. m. must prove quite pop ular, as our business men can have two hours more in Boston (and reach home the same day) than they can have by acy other route. The fares are the same as by the other lines; and the quick time made, as well as the elegant passenger cars which run on this line, must place the Portland & Rochester road in the list of competitors for Boston and Lowell business. Actors in Court.—During tie trial of the Sutberlaud-Wyer case yesterday the de fence called one of the Museum actors as a witness. As he stepped forward and was sworn, he was requested to ‘‘take the stand,” whereupon he started for the piisoner’s box much to the amusement of the spectators. When Curtis was called, he showed that without doubt it was his first appearance in court, and a more frightened man could not be imagined. To add to his embarrassment some of his fellow actors were grouped in the rear of the court room laughing at bis discomfiture. All at once he caught sight of them and his hithertofore sober face relaxed into a quiet smile, such as Curtis can give, causing a pro found sensation in the court room. He said he had rather play “Tilley” and tend the baby than to*be a witness in court. The Museum.—The charming play “Dot,” which has made so decided a hit, will he con tinued for a few nights longer. It is finely presented and played, and none should miss seeing it. Of course there was au excellent sale of seats yesterday morning for Mr. Calder’s benefit. Good seats caD, however, still be recured on early application. Severe Accident —As Mr. J. S. Palmer of the firm of Dow & Palmer, and his wife were driving in town yesterday morning the horse became frightened at a locomotive passing over the Portland street bridge, and ran away throw ing out both occupants. Mrs. Palmer suffered a fracture of the nose and was otherwise injur ed. Mr. Palmer was also injured but not st ' severely. i Real Estate Transfers.—The follow int are the real estate transfers recorded in thii t county yesterday; P Hariison—Lot of land containing fifty-threi acres from Geo. W. Newcomb to Bela Strout Scarborough—Lot of land containing twenty acres from Reuben S. Meserve to Jonatbai 1 * ogg. Promotion of Consul Murray.—Henry John Murray, Esq., who has been so long known to the citizens of Portland and vicinity as the British Consul at this port, has been promoted to the consulship of Buenos Ayres in the Argentine Republic. Mr. Murray was appointed British Consul for Maine and New Hampshire in March, 1860, to reside in this city, and in 1871 consul for Maine. He has re sided in this city since that time, and in his business aud social relations has made hosts of warm friends who will deeply regret that he has been assigned to auother post of duty. As as a gentleman of ability, of wide information and thoroughly acquainted with the details of the position, it is needless to add that Mr. Mur ray has proved a most efficient officer. In con nection with his office, ha has furnished his government with many valuable statistics and observations, which have been frequently cop ied into the Press. For several years he has been called upon by many charitable and lite rary societies to give those readings which have been so loug popular with our people. For many years he has given these readings with out cost, and iu so doing has wou hosts of friends vmoog ail classes. Mr. Murray has a long and honorable record of public service. He was iu the audit office attached to the English foreign office in 1834, till appointed Vice Consul at Tangier Aug. 30, 1841. He was actively employed iu providing for the safety of British sunjects during the French bombardment of Tangier in August, 1844, and was acting Consul General in 1847. In I860 he was appointed Consul to the Canary Islands, aud March 30, 1860, Consul for Maine and New Hampshire, to resido in Portland, and in 1871 Consul for Maine, resident in Port land. Our people generally express the wish that the British government will confer the cossul ship upon Mr. George H. Starr, who has so faithfully performed the duties of Vice Consul for twenty-four years. Odd Fellows Anniversary.—The Odd Fellows are arranging for a grand band aud promenade concert at City Hall tomorrow even ing, the fifty-seventh anniversary of the Order in this country. The proceeds will go to the Odd Fellows fair. An antiquarian supper will be served daring the evening.

The Patten Car Works at Bath, have a con tract secured which we understand will keep them busy for a year. The Gardiner .Reporter says: “Mr. J. S. Bradstreet, of the firm of Bradstreet Bros., lumber manufactureis and dealers of this city, does not confine his speculative mind to the lumber business exclusively. We understand that he will shear this spring from his floqk of sheep in Colorado'about 20,000 pounds of wool. Mr. B. started in the business about three years ago, and his flooks now number a little over 6000 sheep. He also expects to have about 3000 lambs the present spring.” STATE NEWS. __ ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. The Journal says Androscoggin mills Nos. 2 and 3 start up again on Monday next. The mills have been shut down for several days on account of back water. The Journal says Rev. C. C. Mason of the Methodist conference, was run over on Main street by a carriage containing three ladies, who did not stop to see the extent of the inju ry, or sympathize with the gentleman, who though somewhat hurt, escaped without any broken bones. The Journal says the trustees of the Lewis ton Institution for savings have made applica tion to Judge Walton for the appointment of a receiver, under the statute, and the judge has ordered a hearing May 1. Under this proceed ing the assets will be disposed of, the loans collected as they shall mature, and depositors be paid pro rata. This will of course occupy several months. Such a closing up of the af fairs of the bank will necessitate some loss to the depositors, on account of depreciation of certain securities held by the bank. The de posits in the bank last November were 8878, 790.93, On the day of suspension they had run down to 8758,672.80. KENNEBEC COUNTY.
