The Portland & Ogdensburg—Prospects of Completion.—The SL Johnsbnry Caledonian says: “As the facts have already got into the city papers, it is no breach of confidence to say that the managers of the Vermont Division of theP. & O. E. B., are endeavoring to obtain authority to get a preference mortgage of §500, 000 put below the present bonded debt of §2,* 300,000 to its Ogdensburg and Montreal con nections. Of the whole distance of 117 miles, only 35 miles are incomplete, and,if the means are obtained at onoe, this portion C£ n be finish ed and the road opened by August. The pros pects are now very encouraging, more than two-tbirds of the necessary proportion of the present bonded interest having agreed to the the arrangement, which is evidently the best thing that can be done for all parties. When carried eut, it will give a road 117 miles long with a bonded debt of §2,800,000, or §2,333.38 to the mile. It has also transpired that the arrangement to consolidate the entire line (in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont) has failed, and the Vermont Division remains independent of the Eastern Division, the same as lit always bas been. If the arrangement to consolidate had been carried out, perhaps the road in Vermont might have been completed earlier, but in the end Vermont would not prove as well off as under the present arrangement, as the control of the entire line would have been put in the hands of Portland.” News and Other Items.

Press .Opinion* ol the Democratic State Committee. The Herald considers that tbe New York delegation to St. Louis is bound to support Tilden for the Presidential nomination; also that if Morrissey and his anti-Tammanyites do not vote the Democratic ticket the state will go Republican, The Tribune considers yesterday’s convention absolutely for Tilden and says Morrissey may throw his votes with the Republicons this fall, but that it is not very probable that old Demo crats will vote against their ticket in tbe na tional convention. The World says the Democrats of New York in drawing taut the line of organization and sending the foremost Democrats of the Btate to St. Louis with tbe message of the resolutions to their brethren, speak, not so much for them selves, or their favorite statesman, as for the interests of the whole people. The Times says the Utica convention was packed in the interest of Tilden, whose career in his present office is that of a demagogue and who has no chance of a national nomination except as the result of bribery. The platform is composed of platitudes which the conduct of the Democratic majority in the House of Rep resentatives has rendered contemptible. The Times makes a very uncomplimentary com parison between the Boston Republican and the Utica Democratic conventions. WASHINGTON. Kilbourne Hailed. Washington, April 28.-—Judge Carter today decided the Kilbourne habeas corpus case. After citing the legal statutes upon the author ity of Congress in contempt cases, showing that it was the duty of the Speaker ot the House to certify the case to the District Attor ney, whose duty it is to bring the matter be fore the grand jury of the district, he decided that the case is one of misdemeanor, and pun ishable by the courts. In conclusion be said: ‘‘The relator will be rendered to the dominion of the indictment.” Mr. Eldredge, of the counsel for Kilbourne, asked if the court was ready to receive bail. The judge answered that be did not receive bail; that he must apply to the judge of the criminal court. Kilbourne then in company with his counsel repaired to the marshal’s office, where he gave bail in $5000, his partner becoming his surety. The Mary Merritt Case. The committee on expenditures in the Treas ury today commenced an examination of the bark Mary Merritt case. Edward G. Johnson, attorney for the owners of the vessel, denied the statement that the Secretary said he would leave Washington so that the matter might be adjusted by Assistant Secretary Conant. Judge Hubbell, U. S. District Attorney for Wisconsin until the spring of 1875, testified that his first intercourse with Johnson was twenty days before the final remission of the fine. Johnson had called on him to ask whether he had received any communication from Washington relative to the arrangement for the release of the Mary Merritt. Johnson reported that he had just returned from Wash ington and found things there very favorable, that Bristow was going to Philadelphia and would leave the Assistant Secretary to remit the fine or release the Mary Merritt. Witness understood Johnsou to say this to him more than once. Chairman—Did you understand Johnson to say that Secretary Bristow was going to Phila delphia with a view that a settlement might be made during his absence? Witness—I do not give my understanding, but what Johnson said. Johnson told me that such settlement would not be made unless I should give my aseent. Witness then produc ed copies of correspondence between Bluford Wilson, Solicitor General, and himself in rela tion to the Mary Merritt in the summer of 1874, and tbe terms of the compromise. These did not meet with the concurrence of witness for reasoos stated, bat finally he gave his con sent, went into court and filed a warrant of re mission. Judgment was satisfied and this terminated his connection with the case. In response to auestions by Bristow witness said he changed his mind as to the remission of tbe forfeiture, because he thougnt it would be done by tbe department anyhow, and he was pressed very hard by Mr, Young, who was interested, as he had purchased the custom house moieties. He acknowledged that he was interested to the extent of 2 per cent, on ac count of the judgment. Bristow said he was not entitled to such per cent., but the judge held a different view. Mr. Hubbell said he had been removed without any opportunity to defend himself from any charges if any were made. Bristow desired to make a statement and after discussion as to whether he should be put under oath, a motion to exclude from the re cord of the committee the statement of Hubbell about his removal was carried. Bristow ex pressed the hope that the committee would not misuuderstand him. As far as he was con cerned he did not want his statement in reply to go on the record. He could take care of him sen uuisiuB. j.rie men looK a re cess till 4 o’clock. . Representative Bright then left his seat near one end of the table and passed to Bristow, who was sitting at the other end. Bright was somewhat excited and leaned over to talk to the Secretary, who did not seem pleased with tbe visit. The conversation was in undertones. Exaggerated reports prevail of the character of the dialogue, but it is said by gentlemen who overheard the remarks of Bright that they had no reference to the pending questions. This little episode was of brief continuance, and the parties soon regained their calmness, On the re-assembling of the committee at 5 o’clock, Bristow recalled Johnson, who testified that he gave Judge Hubbell a check for $300, or 2 per cent, of the entire amount of $15,000 remitted in the Mary Merritt case. The moie ties to the customs officers were paid out of the gross sum. Judge Hubhell was recalled and claimed that be was entitled to them under the law, as tbe warrant of remission required all the cost to be paid. He made no agreement with Johnson, and it was possible that Johnson came on the part of Young. Bristow said the law of 1871, under wh'ch the claim was made, applied alone to revenae cases, and such claims were allowed only when money was actually paid into the court. Judge ' Hubhell regarded it as a revenue case. Mr. Hubbell said he had nothing to do with stating this investigation. Mr, Evans of Kentucky denied that there was any fraud in the matter, and said the ser- 1 vices ot Bristow were entirely gratuitous. That part of the resolution charging the collusion of Bristsw with an attorney for the vessel. Avans epid he did not apply to him. Adjourned till to-morrow. ' Cabinet meeting. The session of the Cabinet today was of con- i siderable length. It had been agreed to con sider tbe question regarding the submission of tbe original papers in the Executive Depart ments to Congressional committees, but owing to the absence of the Secretary of tho Treasury ‘ from the meeting, the question was postponed till next week, when Attorney General Pierre pont will present the result of his examination , of the law bearing upon that subject. Thecon dition of Indian affairs, it is believed, received attention, the question of allowing army sup plies to be usw^till the freight already shipped i to them front CTieyenne shall reach its uestina- 1 tion, being regarded in a favorable light under the circumstances, and it may be necessary so . to do to prevent a disastrous outbreak.

Washington, April 28.—The Senate suspend- c 1 the legislative business at 12 20 o’clock and isumed consideration of the impeachment of | I. W. Belknap. After reading the minutes of ( esterday’s proceedings, the pending question ( as on the motion submitted yesterday to j ear the testimony in regard to the jurisdiction E the Senate before the arguments in regard ] lereto. Mr. Carpenter of the counsel for Belknap, ddressed the Seuate. He charged that the tanagers were attempting to manage the case o both sides. It was not the intention of tho . aunsel for the accused to cause any unnecessa- i f delay in the Case, but they bad prior profes- ! ional engagements and had not yet bad time ‘ 3 prepare themselves for arguing the question f jurisdiction. He asked that the matter be elayed two weeks from today, and they will hen ask for no further postponement. Their bject was to present the question of jurisdic ion as its importance demanded. Mr. Lord, on the part of the managers, op losed the request for a postponement, and ask d the Senate to hear the testimony in regard o jurisdiction. He! stated that they had the fitnesses ready this morning and asked that hey be heard. Mr. Conkling submitted an order that the Senate proceed first to hear and determine the luestion whether Belknap is amenable to trial jy impeachment for his acts as Secretary of iVar, notwithstanding his resignation of said iffice. The motion that the testimony he heard ouching the exact time of such resignation ind touching the motives and purpose of such esiguation is reserved without prejudice till ho question above stated is considered. Mr. Carpenter during his remarks said that hey would contend that an officer of the gov srnment had a right to resign any moment, and ,he motives which govern the resignation can rot affect the matter. Manager Lord said the evidence as to juris Jiction was principally of a documentary char acter, and it would not take over an hour to bear it. Mr. Edmunds submitted a motion to strike rut the last paragraph of the order submitted by Mr. ConkliDg. and insert the following in lieu thereof—“and that the managers aud coun sel in such argument discuss the question wheter the issues of sact are material.” The Senate then retired to consider the order as submitted by Mr. Conkling and the amend ment of Mr. Edmunds thereto. At 4 40 p m. retnrned and the presiding offi cer, Mr. Ferry, announced that several or ders had been agreed upon, which were read by the Clerk, as follows: Ordered, That the Senate proceed first to hear and determine the question whether W. W. Belknap is amenable to trial by impeachment lor acts done as Secretary of War, notwithstanding his resignation of nffioa otid tbof tba monorrnro *nui anuncol ill fhAtr arguments discuss the question whether the issues of tact are material, and whether the matter in sup port of the jurisdiction alleged by the House of Rep resentatives in the pleadings subsequent to the arti cles of impeachment can be as alleged if same are not averred in said articles. Ordered, That the hearing proceed on the 4th of May at 12.30 p. m., and that the opening and close of argument shall be given to the respondent, and that three counsel and three managers may be heard in such order as may be agreed on between themselves, and that such time be allowed for argument as the managers and counsel may desire. Mr. Lord said the managers desired to he heard on the question as to the opening and closing of the arguments. The presiding officer said that the gentleman was not in order, as an order of the Senate could not be discussed. Mr. AnthoDy inquired if there was noway of reaching consideration of the order. Mr. Edmunds said that the managers could move to set aside the order. Mr. Lord moved to rescind the order and said that Mr. Hoar would speak for the manag ers on behalf of the motion. Mr. Hoar argued at length in favor of re scinding the order, and was opposed by Mr. Carpenter. Without action the Senate, as a court of impeachment, adjourned till Monday at 12 o’clock. NEW HAMPSHIRE. The College Boys’ Squabble at Dart month. Hanover, April, 28.—The “Parker student riot-case” bids fair to be settled. The referees finally agreed upon, Messrs. Cragin, Durant and Pattee of Lebanon, have accepted the appointment, and the hearing began before them yesterday. The town acknowledged its liabilities for damages to Mr. Parker on account of the mob, but this arbitration settles the amount, which with costs will be paid by the students, and the case probably withdrawn from Ihe court, where a suit is pending against them. The “Dartmouth,” which contained in its last issue the treasonable article upon the ag ricultural department, suspended publication with its issue of this wees, the editors saying in their valedictory that the faculty have con trol of its columns and they, (the editors) are unwilling to be cramped in tbeir expressions by dictation, especially where honest criticism is needed and a fair discussion is given. The suspension is only the action of the present eenior class, and the Dartmouth will undoubt edly be revived at the opening of the next col lege year. _ THE INDIANS. Situation at Red Cloud Agency. Omaha, April 28.—A telegram from the Red Cloud and Spotted Tail agencies, via Fort Lar amie yesterday evening, states that no supplies worth mentioning have been issued to the In dians since the 10th inst. The Indians are on the verge of starvation owing to the failure of Congress to vote an appropriation, and on the part of the government’s tailing to forward the supplies needed. The Indians would undoubt edly have left on a raid ere this but for the moral effect of the late expedition against Crazy Horse’s band. There can be no question but that they will he forced to a raid unless supplies are promptly furnished. Gen. Crook is urging the necessity of keeping up the sup plies and holding to the agencies the {Indians disposed to be friendly, but he is apprehensive that the hostile Indians will be greatly rein forced from those now at the agencies, on ac count of lack of supplies. No official inform ation is received of any further raids. Fortj-Fourth Congress—First Session. SENATE. Washington, April 28. A resolution bjP Mr. Anthony, from the Com mittee on Printing, to print 25,000 copies of the agricultural report of 1875, tor the use of the Commissioner, was opposed by Mr. Sauls bury, who desired the resolution laid over unti 1 a plan be arranged for their distribution by members of Congress. Mr. Babcock offered an amendment that 250, 000 additional copies be printed for Congress men. Finally the resolution with amendments was laid over. Mr. Hamlin submitted an amendment to the 7th rule so as to provide that the deliberations of the Senate during the impeachment trial be open. Laid over. Mr. Anthony submitted a motion that the proceedings in the impeachment trial bo print ed separately daily for the use of the Senate and House. Agreed to. The Senate then resolved itself into a court of impeachment. Ex-Secretary Belknap en tered the Senate with Mr. Carpenter ot hi3 counsel, and was soon followed by Mr. Blair. After adjournment as a court of impeach ment the consideration of the legislative busi ness was resumed. Mr. Whyte of Md., moved that when the Senate adjourn it be to Monday. Mr. Sargent hoped the motion would not pre vail as he desired to be heard ou the resolution recently submitted by him in regard to Chinese immigration He would show the Senate that our country was being filled up by slaves, and San Francisco was being converted into Asiatic. Our young men and women were out of em ployment on account of the competition of Chinese. Mr. Thurman hoped the Senate would adjourn over, and said that every Senator should have one day in the week to study the questions pending and become laminar with them. Mr Sargent said he begged the pardon of he Senate, having been so busy this week he bought to-day was Thursday instead of Fri iay. (Laughter.) The motion of Mr. Whyte to adjourn until Monday was agreed to. On motion of Mr, Anthony, the vote by which the resolution for printing the proceed ngs of the impeachment, passed in the moro ns, was reconsidered and the resolution was amended so as to provide for printing 300 copies >f the proceedings for the use of the Senate, 25 ;opies for the use of respondent and counsel, ind the same number of copies for the use of he managers, and as amended it was passed. Senate then adjourned till Monday. HOUSE. A bill removing the political disabilities of fames E. Slaughter was passed. The Speaker laid before the House a commu lication from the Sergeant-at-Arms with the leciBion of the of the Chief Justice of the Su ireme Court of the District, discharging from :ustody Hallett Kilbourne, the recusant wit less. Referred to the Judiciary Committee. On the motion of Mr. Lord permission was ;iven the managers of the Belknap impeach nent to examine as witnesses in the trial any nember of the committee on the expenditures n the war department or any members of the louse whose testimony they may deem re piisite. The House tbeu voted on the various amend nents to the legislative appropriation bill. All hose amendments on which a separate vote vas not asked were agreed to in bulk. The first amendment on which a separate ote was taken was the one offered by Mr. lurlbut of Ills., increasing the compensation if territorial judges from $2500 to $3000. Re ecled. The next amendment en which a vote was aken was one appropriating $3000 for the col ection of agricultural statistics. Rejected. Mr. Seelye of Mass.,made a point of order on ection four, which transfers the Indian bureau rom the Interior to the War Department. He .rgued that it contradicted the rule adopted on he 17th of January 1876, that no provision in my bill or amendment changing tbo existing aw shall be in order except such as is germane o the subject. This was a change of the ex sting law and not being for retrenchment of xpenditures it was not germane to the appro iriation bill. Mr. McCrary of Indiana, read a written ugument in support of the point of order. Mr. Randall argued that the section came ■of only within the spirit but within the letter if the law. It was retrenchment, and so ap leared upon its face. He quoted the minority eport, which is signed by Mr. Seelye to show hat $1,000,000 would be saved in salaries. Aftet a long debate On Mr. Seelye’s point of rder. in which the republican members argued ^ i favor of the point and the democrats (except N Ir. Cox) against it, the Speaker decided M gainst his own party and sustained the point ^ho^Speaker having sustained Mr. Seelye’s mint of order, the section transferring the in- a( Ian bureau to the War Department was struck ut of the bill and then the legislative appro- D iriation bill passed, 208 to 17. , The Speaker was congratulated by several „ ending republican members for the impartiality if bis ruling. u Mr. Randall offered tbe following amend neut to rule five, saying that he did so at tne vs pecial request of tbe Speaker: 1 roe ,,e: bat in case of the personal illness of the v Speaker be may make such appointment of Speaker pro tem (for a period not exceeding ten lays) with the approval of the House at the ;ime the same is made. Agreed to. Mr. Scales, chairman of tbe committee on j Indian affaire, reported a bill appropriating (5,000 for thS subsistence of the Apache Indi- t ins in Arizona.

Please tell the people that ycu saw theii Advertisement in the PRESS the circula tion of which, per month, exceed 1100,000, To Core Catarrh PIIMIA1 ARE BAFFLED! Wliy? Because llie have not made tills disease the study ol a life-time, as did old Dr. Raeder, a dis* tinguislied German Professor, who has probably spent more time over this intricate complaint than any person on the globe. Reflect lor a moment, use your good sense, and remember that the origin of Catarrh is in a COMMON COLD Which oue Box of the great remedy, RIDER’S German Snuff, Would have quickly cured. Now what are the spmptoms of Catarrh? They commence with a sense of irritation about the nasal organs which, if not allayed with GEKM AN SNUFF, alter a short time extend to the throat. As you lie down at night, and fain would sleep and rest the weary brain, HORRIBLE TO SAF, The Secretions of the Head PASS TO THE LUNGS, Causing these delicate organs to become impregnated with CATARRHAL POISON. In the morning you arise with a dull, heavy feel, ing about the head and extreme nausea at the stom ach; you cau eat nothing with a relish, to work is a task, as you have that dull pain and sense of oppres sion which demonstrates the faet that CATARRH HAS SECURED A VICTIM. Now when you realize this fact, do not get frightened and run and pay five or ten dollars for worthless advice, but invest just 35 cents in a box of REDERS German Snuff, Use it according to directions, and a cure is war ranted. PEOPLE OF NEW ENGLAND, Beware of tbi. bane of the age; do not be cot down in the prime of life and hurried to the grave. Bemember Catarrh cause. Consumption, and by the u.e of tbi. reme dy yon will certainly be cured. MEN AND WOMEN, we mean you who are troubled with these com plaints, alas! so common, such as Partial Paralysis, Neuralgia of the Head, Him Vision, Loss of Energy, Lose no time to rid yourself of what in time will kill you, for all of the above are the results of neglected Catarrh. MOTHERS! MOTHERS: We beg of you do not give your little ones Worm Medicine when they complain of being ‘‘staffed up.’* No, no! they have what is far worse and more dan gerous than a myriad of worm9. They have INFANTILE CATARRH, Which, when neglected, and their bodies are placed in a horizontal position, leads very often to what is known as a SUDDEN CROUP, which in nine cases out of ten cannot be cured, and yon behold your loved one die before your eyes. Mothers, always keep on hand a box of R/EDER’S GERMAN SNUFF. For sale everywhere. Prico only 35 cents. SMITH, DOOLITTLE & SMITH, 26 ITemont St., Boston! Agents for U. S. dec7M W&Ssn6m GHASS_ SEED.
