Mr. Fenn of High street church officiated. The flag on Odd Fellows’ Hall was at hilf mast during tbe day, and the oyster saiooos were al' closed from 2 to 4 o’clock, ont of respect to the deceased. The remains were taken to Ever green Cemetery for interment. Portland Illustrated.—Mr. Albert Bunn /• of the N. Y. Graphic is in town preparing to il lustrate in that journal the prominent features ofPortland,including tbe leading mercantile es tablishments, manufactories, &c. These illus trations will be from photographs and will he accurate and finished representations. Pict ures of some of tbe prominent citizens will also be given, and a carefully prepared editorial up on the city will accompany the illustrations. The plan has been presented to several of our leading citizens and meets with much favor. Several other cities have been treated in a simi lar way and with marked success. Presentation.—The members of Mr. J. W. Raymond’s private dancing class presented him, last evening, with a beautiful silver ser vice, purchased at tbe jewelry store of C. H. Lamson. The set was appropriately engraved and the presentation speech was neatly made by Mr. C has. Rich. Mr. Raymond was very much gratifiod by such a marked manifesta tion of the esteem of his pupils. The set may be seen atC. H. Lamson’s store for a few days. Promenade Conceki.—This evening the Odd Fellows of this city celebrate the anniver sary of the Order by a band and promenade concert at City Hall. Chandler’s full band will famish the music for the occasion. An antiquarian supper will be served in Reception Hall dnring the evening. The proceeds of the ■conoort go to aid the Fair. Personal. Some of oar leading citizens think to tender a complimentary benefit to Mr. Wyer of the Museum for his arduous and nntiring efforts to furnish Portland with a first-class place ol amusement. Mr. Wyer deserves substantia recognition. Accident.—Mr. Isaac Gee, a machinist ai the Grand Trunk repair shop, broke bis am last Sunday while out sailing. • 1 Maine Poultut Association—An ad journed meeting of the Maine Poultry Associa tion was held at ilie Preble Hous9 yesterday Afternoon. There was a very large attendance and much'interest was manifested. The mattei of amending the constitution was brought up and discussed at some length. From the dis cussion it was apparent that the constitution nejded considerable amending in order that the members should understand wbat it means. The amendments offered were laid on the table, and a committee, consisting of Messrs. Fred Fox, E N. Perry and Charl-s G Haines, was appoiu'ed to consider all necessary amendments and report at a meeting to be held -lanuary 25th. The election of officers resulted as follows: President—Albert Noyes, Bangor. Vice-Presidents—E. Dana, jr, Portland; Chas. H. Haskell, Portland; W. P. Atherton, Hallowed; H. Leavitt, Skowhegan; Wm. G. Davis, Portland; A. S. Sawyer, Cape Eliza beth; G. D. Stockwell, E. Eddington; It. C. Pingree, Lewiston; Fred Fox, Portland; Col. H. A. De Witt, Augusta. Secretary and Treasurer—Fred Fox, Port land. Directors—It. O. Conant, Portland; B. H. Lewis, Deering; E. L. O. Adams, Portland; W. S. Tilton, Togus; F. F. Harris and W. W. Stevens, Portland. Trial of A Nozzle.—The Board of Engin eers tested the Clements nozzle last evening. Casco steamer was run down to the corner of Federal and Franklin streets and tho new noz zle attached to a line of hose for trial. The ad vantage of this invention is that it is arranged so as to give the pipemen full control of the stream at all times. This is done by a neat contrivance which shuts off the water, and gives a small or a large stream, as is required. The engine is run at full force all the while, and when the nozzle shuts off the stream the water is forced into the suction hose, thus tak ing the strain from the leading hose. By this means a fireman can go into a building and play a small stream or a large one without bursting the hose. The trial was very satisfac tory, and the nozzle will doubtless be introduc ed in the department. The Reception.—Tho reception to General Connor and General Chamberlain, which oc curs next Tuesday, promises to be a graud affair. These gentlemen will be met by the committee of reception on the train the aft ernoon of that day, and on arriving here will be escorted to the Falmouth Hotel, their head quarters during their stay. In the evening tho same committee will escort them to City Hall. St. Johnsburt Freight.—The schooner Nettie Walker arrived yesterday morning with 100 tons of pig iron for Messrs. E, & T. Fair banks & Co., St. Johusbury. Tbe schooner Hannie Westbrook has just finished discharg ing a cargo of coal and iron for the same pai tide oil A f TT7 Vl I nb lino »AnA firr rt t./l a I> & O. Railroad. The Museum.—Those who only saw “Dot” at the first representations have little idea how much better it is now presented. The actors have had time to familiarize themselves with their pans, and several of the impersonations at first good, are now of marked excellence The matinee to-day should draw a large house" Steamer Arrival.—The Allan mail steam er Peruvian, Capt Richardson, from Liverpool 13th, arrived at this port at 120 p. m. yester day, with 44 cabin and 138 steerage passen gers. Mr. Henry Bailey, former Superinten dent of the Grand Trunk, was among the pas sengers. Festival and Concert.—This evening the ladies of the First Baptist society will give a festival and concert at their vestry. A very interesting programme is arranged. The enter tainment will be repeated with slight changes to-morrow evening. Calico Ball.—The Montgomery Guards will give their calico ball at City Hall tomor row evening. A large number of tickets have already been sold and there is a prospect o' a large company. Chandler will furnish the music. Art Entertainment.—There will be a grand art entertainment at the Allen Mission this evening, illustrating a trip across the cou tinent. A powerful Drummond light will be used. From a Former Resident of Portland. Flushing, N. Y., April 23. Mr. Editor:—I hope that I am not quite forgotten and unknown in “the dear old town | seated by the sea,” where I was born and spent so many years of my life, so full of happy memories. I still retain my inrerest in what is going on with you and read your papers, which are occasionally sent to me, advertise ments and all, in hopes to see some familiac name among them. I write this to correct an omission in the Rev. T. Hill’s address on the history of the First Parish, copies of which I have received. I was not only a purchaser at the sale of pews in the old stone churcb, but was the holder of a pew in the ‘‘Old Jerusalem” some years before its demolition. So my name should make the number of six survivors out of the list of original pew-holders. Respectfully, Andrew Scott. Ship-Bnildin?. A Ntrell Through the Kennebunk Ship yards. Kennepunkport, April 25,1870. An afternoon at the stirring yards at this place indicates in this dull season for naviga tion an amount of enterprise not exceeded in any other similar locality. Standing ou the draw bridge iu fine view, and almost within rifle range, may be seen nine vessels in varied condition of progress, five of them being large first class ships, averaging 1700 tons each. Commencing with the yard near est the sea, Messrs. Thompson & Titcomb have a three-deck ship, all ceiled and partly planked, that will measure about 1750 tons. 210 feet keel, 221 feet on deck, 41 feet in width and 27 feet hold. The well earned reputation of these builders will be increased in the perfec tion of this vessel. In the yard next above Capt. Nathaniel L. Thompson has two three decked ships of large proportions, the first measuring 225 feet on the keel, with a beam of 40 feet and 27 feet depth of hold, will register about 2000 tons; this ship is only partially ceil ed, and will be several months on the stocks, as most of the workmen are upon a still larger vessel above the steam mill, which ship is 223 feet on the keel, 41 feet beam and 20 feet 3 in ches hold; the inBide work below the upper deck is nearly completed, and the planking half on. The capacity will be about 2200 tons. These tine ships will have stock both in woods and metals corresponding to their great size, and can be finished in detail as a purchaser may desire. The next premises contain the yard of David Clark, whose new steam mill has a novelty in a bevel jig saw, which makes a saving both in stock and time, and turns out beveling plank and timber with a speed, accuracy and finish not attained in tbe old way. He has well ad vanced a finely modeled bark of 1000 tons, of pood eanaeitv. vet with medium sham ends, is 170 feet keel, and 180 feet over all, is 38 feet wide, and 21 feet 4 inches ucep. Some extra qualities are noticeable. The thick work is very heavy for her class, the npper deck clamps being about the size used in ships of 2000 tons; the cabin accommodations will be large, in a poop coming to the mainmast, and the neces sary extra fastening is being pat in to insure a rating with French Lloyds A1 with a star for eleven years. The depression in vessel property of this class since last year is some 20 per cent,—then a ship of the above description would bring $50 —now this vessel can be bought (hull and spars) for $40 a ton, and the larger ships in the yards below at proportional prices. Across the river, above the South Congrega tional church, is the capacious yard of Messrs. Crawford & Perkins, where a short time since a fire swept off their half completed ship, their steam mill aud joiner shop. A new mill with modern improvements, a much better shop, a larger aBd finer vessel now adorn the premises; this ship is being built under contract with Messrs. George C. Lord & Co. of Boston, and Captain Moses C. Muling of Kennebunk, the builders retaining an interest for themselves) Commencing with an improved model, and a frame more perfect than was ever raised on this river, these enterprising builders are com pleting their vessels with materials and work never excelled in the state. The principal di mensions are: keel 196 feet, leugth on deck 208 feet, breadth of beam 40 feet, hold 24 feet, ca pacity about 1480 tons; the beams are 10x15 inches above and 15xlG under the lower deck, with large partner beams in the lower hold; she has four 16-inch keelsons, with doable sis ter keelsons, and upon the upper deck a double hard pine lock streak, the thick work iu all Other places of the most heavy stock, secured iu additiou to tbe beet square fastening by un usual edge bolting. As a specimen of tbe se lected stock iu her construction, we notice tbt upper deok laid with clear Michigan 4 Dy ‘ joist, and excepting under the houses, even s small knot caa hardly be found. This sbii "ill be named Rembrandt, aod is under tht daily care and superintendence of Capt. M. C Mating In additiou to the conditions for thi highest insurance rating, she will have a stean engiue in the deck house sufficient for all pur poses of pumping, loading aod weighing an chor, and furnished with a fresh water couden ser. In smaller craft, Mr. Charles Ward will launch this week, all rigged and finished, £ sharp, tasty fishing schooner, built for Ricliart I. Nunan of Cape Porpoise, and Capt. Weeks of Proviacetown. Will measure 33 tons O. M. and has been named Ed. H. Weeks. Messrs. Jacob and Henry Heckman launched Saturday a small fishing vessel for their own use. Charles Hamilton is building a fisherman foi a Cape Porpoise crew, and Benjamin Jackson & Sans have put up the frame for a p'easure or fishiog boat, which will be for sale. The great increase iu the size of onr mer chant ships since about the war of 1812 is hardly realized by our younger owners and masters. From the printed list of new vessels registered at this Custom House sinoe 1800, I find the average tonnage of ships for the 20 years ending in 1821 to be only 202 tons; to make a plain comparison, tbe five ships above noticed aggregate a tonnago equal to the first thirty-two ships built on this river after the year 1800. The cost per ton is also much iu excess above the old time shipping, as each year brings additional demands for improve ments and expensive outfittiDgs. Two masts landed here a few days since in the ears from Michigan cost $500 each. X. Y. Z. Maine Business Notes. The woolen mills at North Vassalboro’ are to shut down for repairs on Monday next. It will take some six weeks to repair the flume; after that is completed the mill will run a portion of its machinerji) while other portions will be under repairs, which will take most of the summer season to complete. A portion of the help have left, and others are lmltimr around for employment. Some changes have been made with the overseers, some have been set back to their old places, while new ones are to come in. There is to he a change in the kinds of goods manufactured, which requires the change with the overseers above men tioned. There are three mills in Denmark running on full time, sawing 0000 staves a day, and employing twenty hands. Maple sugar mak ing has beeu a poor paying business this season, the flow being small, and stormy weather interfering with operators. Hay is plenty and sells from $12 to $10 per ton. Western corn sells for 80c at Brownfield depot, and potatoes at 53c per bushel. V. M. C. A. Canvass.—A correspondent writes that meetings were begun at Limerick the 17th where there are three churches, the Congregational, Baptist and Free Baptist. The churches were in a low state when the meetings begun. The first day nine persons expressed an interest in religious matters, among whom was the teacher of the high school. Last Friday afternoon the school at tended the meeting in a body. At the close twenty-five of the scholars with the assistant teacher rose for prayers. Sunday six meetings were held in the same church. The meAings gfere of deep interest and the number of per sons seeking religion increases at every meet ing. The meetings will be continued another week. Experience has shown that it is wise to devote more time to places where an interest is awakened. At Springvale tLc Work has been golDg stead ily on this week. Meetings at Cornish will probably not com mence before Monday evening next. The West Buxton Case.—Several gentle men from West Buxton were in town yesterday and report the excitement over the supposed murder case unabated. Mr. Bartlett has care fully examined the blood taken from the bridge and is of tbe opinion that it is human blood, but as it was perfectly dry when brought to him, he can not positively determine in this respect. He ha3 shown it to several chemists, who consider it human blood. From the con dition of the blood Mr. Bartlett is of the opinion that it was dropped directly from the person or animal onto the bridge where found. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY The Lewiston Journal says the first invoice of new silver halves and twenty cent pieces has been received in that city by Mr. Baothby of Eastern Express. AROOSTOOK COUNTY.

The management of Gen. Tilton is highly commended by the committee conduct ing the examination. Tho Journal says: The first sailing vessels of the season came to our wharves yesterday, being two three-masted schooners. The Journal says yesterday noon the carpen ter shop of E. F. Pinkham of Augusta cafflfc very near being destioyed by fire, through the carelessness of some boys. They had set the grass on fire in the field adjoining, and it was blazing up and spreading rapidly towards the building, when tbe situation was discovered. The Journal says: Tbe freight train for up river was just starting, about noon, Monday, when two young ladies rushed from the ladies’ room in the passenger depot, evidently "intend ing to get aboard. One of them seized hold of the iron rods, to assist her in getting aboard, but tbe train was going and she had no time to get a foothold. There she hung by the hands. The attention of tbe engineer was attracted to her perilous situation, when he reversed his engine as speedily as possible, and brought tbe train to a halt, just as the lady became entirely exhausted, and losing her hold, tell prostrate npon the track.

She died very suddenly last week, and was brought back to Dixmont for burial. The peculiar appearance of the remains aroused suspicion that there had been foul play, and after an examination the physician said that death was probably caused by poisoning. The deceased was, however, in terred. Mr. Burgess came to Bangor, Sunday, and interviewed Coroner WilsoD, who will investigate the matter. WALDO COUNTY.

Ar*ply between 2 and 4 o’clock at NO. 217 COMMERCIAL STREET. ap26 isdlw* Dr. Mckenck’a Standard Remedies. The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup, Schenck’s Sea Wefd Tonic, aud Schenck’s Mandrake Pills, and, if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy cure effected. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenck, ot Philadelphia, owes his umivalled success in the treat ment of pulmonary diseases. The.Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matter in the lungs; nature throws it off by an easy expectora tion, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it off, the patient has rest and the ungs begin to heal. To enable the Pulmonic Syrup to do this Schenck’s Mandrake Pills and Schenck’s Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck’s Mandrake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstructions, relax tbe gall bladder, the bile starts freely, and tbe liver is soon relieved. | Sclieuck’s Sea Weed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative; tbe alkali of which it is composed mixes with the food and prevents souring. It assists the digestion by toning up tbe stomach to a healthy condition, so that the food and the PulmoDic Syrup will make good blood; then tbe lungs heal, and tbe patient will surely get well if care is taken to prevent fresh cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenck, either per sonally or by letter, can do so ac his priDeipal office corner of Sixth and Arch Sts.. Philadelphia, every Monday. # Schenck’s medicines are sold by all druggist throughout the country, jy14 mhleod2m3dp&wsn A 'SWSSSST* boar" —^■——■ NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
