Persons holding tickets to the entertainment of the Portland Debating Club are reminded that to night is the evening for the entertain ment. This evening there is to be a 3ocial party at Arcana Hall. A pleasant time is assured. The Reform Club will hold a Dublic meeting this evening in the Y. M. C. Association Hall, commencing at 7} o’clock. The election of officers for the Third Class P. H. S Literary Society will take place Fri day, May 5th. All the members are requested to be present. Mr. Sands’ excellent art entertainment at the Allen Mission last evening was largely attended and the audience were delighted, and a unanimous vote was given to repeat it. The entertainment is very instructive and inter esting. Bryant’s Minstrels make their first appear ance in this city on Friday evening. The agent says it’s the only real good minstrel show ever in Portland. There are about forty cases to be presented to the grand jury, besides those for liquor selling. George Wellbridge, who lives on Middle street, fell down a bank in his garden yester day morning, and broke bis left leg below the knee. Mr. J. R. McKelvey is doing an excellent work in the cause of temperance at St. Albans, Vermont. The school teachers will be paid oft Satur day. The City Treasurer's office is to have tele graphic communication with the police station. A small boy was run over by a jigger on Lincoln street, Tuesday afternoon, indicting a severe wound on his leg. The new silver change has put in an appear ance in this vicinity. The weather yesterday was not very promis ing for green peas on the Fourth. The grand jury come in next Tuesday. On execution obtained by the town of Can ton against Hon. F. O. J. Smith, the sheriff last week levied on and set off thirty-six acres of hie “Forest Home” estate in Deering; two strips of land were taken, one each side of his house, running from the Plains road to the lower road from Woodford’s Corner to Morrill’8 Corner. Mr. Smith has one year in which to redeem the land. Mr. Hutchins, the gentleman who was Btruck by the engine at the Grand Trunk station at Yarmouth on Monday, was much less seriously injured than was at first sup posed. There are no indications that any in ternal injury was sustained, or anything more than severe bruises. A Wonderful Child.—Yesterday morning a Gra nd Trunk Railroad employe called at the police station and informed Deputy Sterling that there was a boy at his house, who was wanted in Boston. The Deputy visited the , house and arrested the boy, who gave his name as Henry Lamb. He says be is sixteen years old, although he does not look more than ten. He says that his father died when he was very young, and since then his mother has married a lawyer named Woodmansee at Nicholsville, Coss county, Mich. He got tired of staying at home and about a year ago left to see the coun try. Since that time he has been to all the principal cities in the United States, At one place he engaged as waiter in a hotel, and worked several weeks. He came here on the Boston & Maine train Fast Day, and has since been stopping where he was found. On Mon day he was down to the Boston depot and saw an officer from Boston, who was looking for him. After he was arrested yesterday Mar shal Bridges telegraphed to Boston asking if be was wanted. An answer was soon received from the Chief of Police saying that his moth er wanted him sent to Michigan. He was to go to Boston on the boat last evening, but it did not go. He will be sent from Boston to his Western home. He is smart and bright, and says be is going to Europe on his next trip. Genealogy.—It is not generally known that the late Charlotte Cushman, the eminent ac tress, was a lineal descendent of the Rev, Thos. Smith, the first pastor of the first church in Portland. She was descended from Mr. Smith’s eldest daughter, Lucy, who married Thos. Sanders of Gloucester, Mass. One of her daughters married Erastus Babbitt ol Stur ULIUgU) lUltCO, , UCI UUU^Ul'Ct iUUlJ IlllllltU Elkanah Cushman, and their eldest daughter was Charlotte Sanders Cushman, the actress, born in 1810. Thus Miss Cushman was in tbe fifth degree of descent, in tbe female line, from Parson Smith, who died in 1795, aged 94. This is the same degree in which Gen. S J. Ander son stands to the same venerable head, through the male branch of the family, he being a lineal descendant of Peter Thatcher Smith, the only son of the old parsou who left any children. A Confidence Game.—Officers York and Miles arrested two sneak thieves named Dwinel and McCarty yesterday, charged with playing a confidence game on a youth from Augusta. The victim arrived from Augusta Tuesday, and was met by three men, who were very aDxious to show him the sights. One of them exhibited a tobacco box and bet 810 he could not open it. This bet tbe young man accepted and easily raised the cover. Then other bets were made on the same subject, the uewlyjfouud acquaintances losing every time. When near the centre of the city one of the strangers asked the young man to make change for a bill, and when he had put ali his money—some 813—with the winnings in their hands, they departed. Odd Fellows' Ball.—The Odd Fellows celebrated their fifty-seveDth anniversary last evening by a concert by Chandlers Band, a ball and antiquarian supper in City Hall. About a thousand Odd Fellows and ladies we.'e present, just enough to eDjoy themselves com fortably in tbe hall. Chandler’s music was ex cellent as a matter of course, the dances en' joyed, tbe amauscment and the supper would have done credit to the skill of the grandmoth ers of the ladies who got it up. For an old fashioned, social and thoroughly enjoyable oc casion, the annual parties of tbe brethren of the “three links” cannot be excelled. An Unfounded Complaint —A complaint was made to Mr. Sawyer, yesterday, that a cow owned at Ferry Village had broken her leg and was suffering from the effects of the injury. Mr. Sawyer; appointed lire. Riplej and Richardson to investigate tho case. The; visited the owner of the animal and were in formed that the cow broke her leg some tim ago and now the fracture was nearly well. Th cow could walk with little or no difficulty an was in good condition. Portland Neamen’s Friend Hociely. At the recent meeting of this society the re port was, in important respects, very encourag ing. The past has been a year of precious re sults. The reading room in the church has proved all that was anticipated. It has been yiaited by a great many seamen, who have met a cordial welcome and found a retreat safe, pleasant and profitable. More than six hun dred letters have been written, and scores have found oor religious meetings, who otherwise would never have been drawn in. At one time it was nearly overrun and nearly captured by “tramps,” but was rescued, and is now held exclusively in the interest of the sons of the ocean. Some 32 libraries have been put up and sent to sea during the year, mating 172 at this port. The religious meetings of the Bethel have been unusually blest. Meetings were held eve ry evening during January, and from to four weekly since. The religious interest has been deep and constant, though perfectly quiet, seemingly not dependent upon “works,” but on unseen influence, beautiful in power and re sults. There has been no attempt to enumer ate, but certainly a large number have signified their purpose to lead a new life, and have de sired remembrance in prayer while away upon the sea. Quite a number have returned stead fast in faith. Last Sunday evening some ten or twelve requested prayers. A pleasing fea ture of the work has been the very cordial and harmonious union of the Portland reformed brethren in the meetings of Sunday morning. These meetings still continue with unabated interest. The visits to the boardinghouses and wharves have been constant and systematic. More than 600 packages of papers, periodicals and tracts have been placed on ship board, besides distri bution by our visitors. Some 1200 copies of the “Bethel Flag” have been published and circulated freely in our work. We again gratefully acknowledge the thought ful kindness of friends who have given valua ble reading matter, both periodicals and books, without which our work would have been far more imperfect. The Bethel enterprise rests on its friends, largely outside of the few church workers—a united and cheerful band—at the church on Fore street. It must still rest thus. We cannot expect to draw men and women from the larger societies, where they are so greatly needed, to become personally engaged here. But they must remember that this is a part of their work. Noble supporters have gone. We shall not soon forget Deaon C. J. _11 i — ^ t. _r— _ ----•-j-- '“vvh rit; and benevolence, withdrawn the past year. We need others to fill their places. The aim is to do tbe greatest amount of good with the least possible outlay. But the in creased facilities for doiDg good, named above, have affected tbe treasury. The reading room was not obtained and furnished without cost, in changes in the interior of the church, and for care and furniture. It must add somewhat to current expenses. The debt of the Bethel is very small, and that only for a month or two just passed. But the outlook owing to the long continued de pression of business, is unusually dubious. Could the Bethel but go along entirely without money, it would have at length solved the prob lem of perpetual motion. It is worth some thing to have come near it. The entire expen ses of the society, including pastor’s salary, libraries, reading room and lightiog the church do not exceed SI500 for the yea?. We trust the friends of goodness, especially those whose in come is not seriously affected by the times, will remember this work with peculiar interest. John H. True, Treasurer. F. Socthworth, Secretary. CITY AFFAIRS. A special meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen was held yesterday afternoon, and the following business was transacted: Petitions presented and referred—Of An drew J. Rich for damages caused by a defect in Market Square; of John W. Libby etals., for sewer in Hanover street. Tbe following communication from S. J.

It is safe to say the proposed benefit will be tbe largest of the season.

A Gravestone Story.—Not many years ago a real estate owner in this city owned a cer tain bouse on a certain street in the city. This isjiothing unusual, but what follows is rather out of the usual course. The house was sold recently, and yesterday the purchaser subjected it to a thorough spring cleaning. In fact it was cleaned from garret to cellar, and but for the cleaning of the latter room we should have no tale to relate. In the aforesaid cellar was found a gravestone which formerly occupied a position in one of our cemeteries, and was placed over the grave of the first wife of a well known merchant in this city. The name of the deceased, her ago and the date of her death (1853) were plainly marked on the stone. The stone was covered with dirt and dust, and must have been in the cellar for several years. The question is how came it there and for what purpose was it taken from the cemetery? Death of a Portland Man.—Maj. Wil liam M. Quimby of the U. S. Army, who died at Magnolia, Va., on the 11th inst,, was a na tive of Portland. At the outbreak of the re bellion, he was residing in this city, engaged in the business of house painting, and was at the time, we believe captrin of the Portland Kifle Guards. Ue joined the First regiment as captain of one of the two companies into which the Kifle Guards was divided, and served with the regiment through its term of enlistment. He then obtained a commission as captain in the regular army and served through the war with credit. Major Quimby was 51 year3 old at the time of his death. The Musbdm.—The one remaining oppor tunity to see ‘‘Dot” should not be neglected. The play is one of the most pleasiog which has been put ou this season. It is scarcely necessary to remind the public that Mr. Calder’s benefit takes place to-mor row night. Good seats may yet be secured by those desirous to attend. Persona'. Hon. J. H. Drummond of this city has been elected a director of the Union Mutual Life In surance Co. The Portland friends of Mr. James A. Ar nold will be pleased to learn that he is playing a star engagement in Manchester, England. Concert and Beading.—The concert and reading at the First Baptist church this eieu ing promises to be a very eDjoyable affair. Change for tickets and refreshments will be ) made In silver coin. Tickets purchased for (he i last entertainment will be accepted at the door 1 i andjan entire change will be made in the | programme. A Wideawake Meeting.—Never before have the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals been known to have an excitiDg meeting, but yesterday they had one in good earnest. At the annual meeting of this Socie ty it will be remembered the agent, Mr. Saw yer, was instructed to see that all hacks and drivers employed in carrying passengers for hire be properly licensed, and the hacks have numbers placed on them. The agent at once took measures to enforce this order, and since that time has visited several stables on official business. The other day he dropped into the stable kept by Capt. Charles Sager, and found Beueral of the carriages known as landaus un numbered, also one or two drivers who were not licensed. Capt. Sager explained that these carriages did not come within the meaning of the law, as they were not for hacking purposes but were only used on special occasions, for funerals, weddings and to drive a party about the city. He was unwilling that numbers should be placed upon them as it would lessen their value for these purposes. The agent would not accept this excuse and ordered Capt. Sager to comply with the law, or he should prosecute him. Yesterday the regular monthly meeting of the directors of the Cruelty Society was held, and nearly the full board were present. Presi dent Cleaves called the meeting to order, and Capt. Sager, who is a member of the boar 3, arose and preferred charges against the agent for being oppressive in the performance of his duty. He spoke at some length, and was de' cidedly personal in his remarks. One charge he made against the agent was that he would not allow a horse to be used if he had corns. He claimed that it did not hurt a horse to be used even if he did have corns. At the close of Capt. Sager’s remarks Mr. Sawyer opened for the defence. He said while he was agent he proposed to do his duty, and when he did more than that he wished to be informed by the So ciety, and he would resign. He even offered to resign then and there, but the board refused to allow him to do so. On motion of Judge Kingsbury, the Presi dent was requested to call a special meeting of the Society to hear the charges against tbe agent. This meeting, when held, will be a live ly one, as Capt, Sager is anxious to make out his case, and Mr. Sawyer is equally anxious to sustain the position he has taken. Real Estate Transfers.—Tho following are the real estate transfers recorded in this Bounty yesterday: Freeport—Lot of land containing four acres from Prudence Grant to Floris E. and Enoch Y. Gould. Portland—Lot of land on Franklin streot, from Marcia W. Anderson te Joel Whitney. Lot of land on Franklin street from ADnie A. Lord to Joel Whitney. Lot of land and buildings on Smith street from Edward Waite to Martha A. Dow. Yarmouth—Lot of land from David Shepley to Wm, P. Hutchinson. Brunswick—Lot of land from George W. Wagg to Ellen Chamberlain. Schooner Ashore.—Tbe fishing schooner Moses Adams of Gloucester, bound East, at tempted to mike this harbor late Tuesday night, and in some way went ashore on Spring Point Ledge about 21 o’clock yesterday morn ing. She remained where she struck until about 11 o’clock yesterday, when the tug Tiger pulled her off, and brought her into the harbor. She broke her shoe and sprung her keel badly, and when brought up the harbor had about four feet of water in the hold. She will go on the marine railway for repairs to-day. The Moses Adams is a new schooner and a very fine one. Sheridan & Mack.—This evening the Sher idan & Mack combination appear at Music Hall. They have recently reorganized, and come here from Boston, where they have just closed a most successful engagement The Boston papers all speak of them in the highest terms. ____________ Fairfield Affairs. Tlic Temperance Movement-—Religious and Hnsine» Notes Fairfield, April 26. A delegation from the Fairfield Reform Club visited Clinton village Tuesday night aud or ganized a club there. They found the people aroused and ready for tbe work. The church was full of interested listeners, and as a result o' their labors a club of 43 iron-clad members were formed, with Abbott Hunter as President and Merritt Hunter as Secretary This is the fourth club organized by delegations from the club in this village. Our club was organized March 11th, and now numbers 145 “iron-clads,” the club at Somerset 31 members, one at West Waterville 67 members and one at Waterville of 115 members. All through this section the people are ready and willing, yes, more than that, are anxious to do all iu their power to sus tain and hold up the clubs. The practical workings of the movement is already manifest in our streets. Signs of drunkenness have en tirely disappeared, and it has been weeks since an intoxicated person has been seen in our vil lage. The reading room of the club is open at all hours, and tbe large list of papers and maga zines ar9 carefully read by the boys. This is one of the great levers that will help lift them above the influence of habit. The Press is the only! daily furnished the club by the publishers, and for this move on tbe part of the managers the boys feel very thankful. The fact that strangers feel suffi dent interest in their undertaking to help them by putting their Daily upon the the reading room table, calls forth words of good cheer from different ones. Kev. P. Chandler, who has labored the past year with the Methodist church at this place, returned from the Conference to continue his labors another year. The Dew Baptist chapel will be occupied the coming year by Rev. Dr. Shaw of Waterville, who will move here in a few weekfc. Consid erable interest has been awakened in these meetings and a prosperous society will, without doubt, be built up here. Our lumbermen with thoir drive >tart to-day to get their logs out to the harbor. Our mills have commenced running, but few orders co me in yet The travelling in these parts is awful, snow all gone, but the frost come3 out slowly. _ Seth. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY Hon, J. K.
