What is fame? A telegraphic despatch to the Farmington Chronicle announces the death of “Barney Williams, the noted prize fighter.” Several of the Allan steamer clerks left for Montreal yesterday.

The sale of tickets for the Berger Family and Sol Smith Russell commences early this morn ing. A drunken tramp took possession of the Ar gus office last evening, and officer Crowell was called to conduct him to the police station. An Important Suit.—Some time ago Mrs. Susan Mussey, wife of the late Charles Mus sey, Esq , brought an action in the Supreme Court against Mr. Jobu Mussey to recover the sum of $10,000 which the plaintiff alleges was due her husband at the time of bis death. It appears that in 1850 Mr. John Mnssey agreed to pay semi-annually the sum of $300, to the deceased, his brother. The writ states that said sum was paid up to 1802, when payment ceased, and nothing has been paid since. The * payment of the annuity was for life, but it is claimed by the defense that the agreement was simply a gift and was not based upon any con sideration, while the plaintiff claims the con sideration was $10,000. The ease came before Judge VirgiD, Thursday, .and was nonsuited as the plaintiff was not ready for trial. The case will probably come up in another form at the next term of the coutt. Counterfeiter Arraigned.—Deputy Mar shal Marble arrived in this city yesterday af. temoon with Benjamin O. Hall, who was ar rested at Frankfort Tuesday, charged with passing counterfeit money. He was brought before the United States Commissioner and * pleaded not guilty, and was committed to await his trial next Tuesday. He had no counsel but District Attorney Webb appeared for the gov ernment. Hall is about forty years of age and is married. It is claimed that he has been manufacturing five cent nickles from zinc and lead. ,__ A Free Rids.—Yesterday morning an emp ty car arrived from Bangor over the Maine Central and was hauled down to the store of George W. True & Co., to be loaded wi th corn. On opening tbe car the workmen discovered a man, who admitted that he had'got in at Ban gor and was locked up. When released he made tracks for an eating saloon near by. If the car had been run on to a siding between here and Bangor tbe man would have been iu a bad fix.___ Accident.—Mrs. Harriet Thurston met with a painful accident yesterday. As her aged mother, nearly ninety years of age and totally blind, was moving about tbe room she came near falling on tbe stove. Mrs. Thurston sprang to save her and succeeded, but fell and broke her.hip. The fracture is a bad one. Hotel Improvements.—Some time ago w alluded to the improvements to be made in th Preble House the present season. The worl proposed is now completed and this house i all ready for summer travel. The room for merly used as a reading room is now convertei into a private gentleman’s parlor. The writin< desk has been taken out and the roon thoroughly renovated. A handsome carpe adorns the floor, while the white walls shov signs of a whitewash brush. The furniture ii also very attractive. This room is for tho usi of guests of tho house, and will he kept nea and attractive all the time. The placards 01 the walls announce that no smoking will bi allowed. The improvements in the businesi office is very noticeable. Tho counter now runs lengthwise of the room, giving much more room and better light Irom the rear windows This latter improvement is more noticeable ot a dark, cloudy day. In the rear of the countei there is a private business office, very nicelj fitted up for the use of the proprietors. At the rear of the office Mr. Morris has a cigar stanc and an office for the sale of railroad tickets Adjoining this stand is the coat room. The room formerly occupied as a barber shop is nou converted into a light, airy reading room where can be found the Press and other lead ing daily journals. Beyond is the wash-room, The barber shop is now to be found in verj neat quarters in tho basement. A large pantry and soap room has been added to the rear ol the hotel. Besides these improvements just named, the proprietors have been rearranging the rooms and have nowly furnished many of them. The proprietors, Messrs. Gibson & Waterhouse, are to bo congratnlated on their preparations for the summer trovel of the centennial year. The Museum. -The storm interfered with the attendance at Mr. Calder’s benefit last eve ning, but still he had an excellent house and a thoroughly appreciative one. His first appear ance was the signal for warm applause, which was repeated at subsequent appearances. More substantial evidence of appreciation was the presentation of a hundred dollars in green, backs, which took place at the close of the third act. The play given was Bulwer’s fine comedy “Money” in which Mr. G'alder assumed tho role of “Graves,” one of the most entertaining of modern plays. It is to be regretted * that the bill is not to be repeated. Besides the assump tion by the beneficiary Mr. Wheelock’s rendi tion of “Alfred Evelyn” deserves warm praise for its force and refinement. It was an imper sonation which commanded the hearty admira tion of all present. A pleasing incident of the evening was the neat programmes printed on fine board and each having for a tassel a beau tiful white rose-bnd. They were furnished by the Bon Marche, 545 Congress street. One of these programmes, containing the cast for the play of the evening, will be given to each lady attending Mr. Wyer’s benefit. This evening “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” will be given with Miss Alfy Chippendale in her very popular and excellent role of “Topsy”, which provoked so warm praise last season. Mr. Wheelock assumes the part of “George Har ris”, Mr. Bascomb that of “Uncle Tom”, Mr. Calder that of “Marks” and tho little Curtis that of “Eva.” Tho play will doubtless call out a large house. It will be given at the mat inee. People should bear in mind that tha sale of seats for Mr. Wyer’s benefit opens this morn ing. Let there be a rousing house. Bobbery on Fore Street.—About nine o’clock last evening officer E>ce discovered three men coming out of a saloon on Fore street, kept by Andrew McGlinchy. One of the men was intoxicated and his face was bad ly bruised. He appeared to be in care of Alex ander Scott, better known as “Scotty,” and Peter Deehan. The officer saw that the man was in bad company and so took him to the police station. He told the officer that he was discharged from the Portsmouth navy yard Thursday, and yesterday came to this city with $378 in his pocket. At the depot he met “Scotty” and Deehan who got him drunk and then assaulted and robbed him. Deputy Ster ling and officer Eice at once arrested Deehan and “Scotty” for the robbery. They found a railroad check for the man’s baggage in Dee han’s pocket, and the man’s discharge papers on “Scotty.” From the discharge papers the man’s name appeared to be Nicholas Moore. Tho officers afterwards arrested the wives of these well known thieves and searched their houses, but failed to find the money. Both of the men are notorious characters and they are arrested just in time for the grand jury. The Eeception.—The committee having in charge the sale of tickets for the Infantry Be ception have failed to send invitations to many of our best citizens, and as it is feared they cannot reach all who would wish to attend, it has been decided cot to limit the sale of tick ets. The Eeception Committee will drive to the Falmouth on the evening of tho reception and receive Governor Connor and staff, and General Chamberlain and staff, with their ladies. They will then be escorted to City Hall and will be formally received in an ap propriate speech from Colonel John C. Cobb. It is expected that? both the Governor and Ex Governor Chamberlain will reply. There will then be a band concert by|,the Portland Band, after which a collation will be served the in vited guests in the reception room. Eeed will prepare the collation, and will also have a dining hall in the Senate Chamber. After the collation there will be dancing.

It is in the hands of some of our most prominent citi zens, who desire to show to Mr. Wyer their ap preciation of his efforts ro sustain a first-class place of amusement in this city. We trust iuai uu luvuuaj eveumg me nouse will db pack ed, for the beoeficiary certainly deserves sub stantial encouragement in his attempt in spite of many difficulties, to furnish a high order of entertainments to the people of Portland. The business men of the city should be especially prompt to respond. The play selected is Bou cicault’s highly successful drama, “TheShaugh. raun,” a play which has been warmly received wherever presented. Trade from tiie Mocntains.—Hardly a day passes but what the trains over the Ogdens burg briDg more or less merchants from the mountains to trade with our wbolosale houses. Yesterday we noticed Mr. C. J. Houghton and G. H. Tisdale of St. Johusbury, the Priest brothers of the Franconia House, and Mr. Bowles of Bethlehem, all of whom stopped at the City Hotel. The Priest Brothers aro just starting a new hotel at Francouia and they bought a large bill of goods ou Commercial street. The gentlemen are much pleased with the city and propose to come ofton. May Day Dinner and Concert.—The ladies of the Second Parish have made arrangements for a grand entertainment at City Hall, May Day. A hot dinner will be served in Recep tion Hall from 12 to 2 o’clock, consisting of all the delicacies of the season. In the evening there will be a concert in the main hall, also a fine display of useful and fancy articles for sale. There will also be an exhibition by the ladies, in costume of ye olden time. A Fine Colt.—The famous stallion coll owned by Mr. Henry T. Carter will be offeree for sale, at auction, this morning, at the car riage mart on Plum street. This colt was sired by “Tom Patchen,’’ and claims the wel known mare, “Kate Sharp,” for a dame. H( received the premium at the county fair a yeai ago, aDd is considered by all judges of horsi flesh to he a very promising colt. Declaration of Independence—Mr. J. K Barber of this city is agent for copies of Prof Peacon’s Declaration of American Independ ence which is regarded as the greatest work ii pen drawing ever made in this country. Th piece has been photo-lithographed in good styl Iand is 21 by 41 inches. It is designed to b framed. It will undoubtedly find a ready sale St. Nicholas Fair.—The St. Nicholas Cir cle will bold a fair Tuesday and Wednesday a No. 13 Park street, for the sale of useful am ornamental articles. The fair will be opei from 10 a. m. to 10 p. m. i Mayor Fessenden’s Team Stolen.—The > Thief Caught.— Some time Thursday night a horse thief entered Mayor Fessenden’s stable i in the rear of his residence, on Deering street, and stole one of his valuable horses, a new l phaeton, a new harness and two carriage robes. The entrance was effected through a back win dow. The property taken was very valuable, the horse being one recently purchased to match the carriage horse which took the premium at i the State Fair. As soon as the robbery was discovered Marshal Bridges was notified and the whole police force was soon on the street to catch the thief. Deputies Chase and Sterling took teams and at once started in different di rections. Marshal Bridges sent telegrams in every direction, giving a description of the team and asking for the arrest of the thief. The Marshal sent officer Stevens to Portsmouth, officer Hanson to Bar Mills, officer Newcomb to Saco, and he himself went to Freeport, but all of them were unable to find aDy clue to the stolen team. Last evening a despatch was received from Portsmouth saying the team had been recover ed and the thief arrested. When the City Marshal of Portsmouth heard of the robbery he stationed two men on the bridgo and order ed them to remain there until the next morn ing. About seven o’clock last evening one of these officers discovered the stolen team about to cross the bridge. The horse was stopped and the thief secured. He gave his name as Chas. O. Douglass, and admits the robbery. Marshal Bridges will go to Portsmouth this morning to bring Douglass and the team to this city. Mar shal Bridges and his officers were very active in looking up the matter. Second Parish.—At the annual meeting of this society last evening, the following offi cers were elected for the ensuing year: Clerk, W. H. Hobbs; Parish Committee, S. W. Lar rabee, Geo. Brock, John Porteous, Samuel Fogg, J. H. Webster; Treasurer, S. W. Larra bee; Music Committee, L. M, Cousins, R. S. Curtis, Enoch Martin, J. F. Liscomh. The thanks of the society were unanimously ex tended to S. W. Larrabee, chairman of the Parish Committee, and Treasurer, for the faithful performance of his arduous duties dur ing the building of tbo church; and also to the ladies for providing for the payment of the in terest on the bonds. For the information of the many kind friends who have aided by their con tributions towards the erection and completion of the Second Parish church edifies, and all in terested for the welfare of the sneielv ilw, following statement is made: The entire cost of the church, furnishing the same and organ, is $81,172.52. The parish owe $12,000 bonded debt, and $2000 other debts, in all $14,000. When circumstances are more favorable and business revived somewhat, it is hoped to ef fect the sale of more pews to aid in the dis charge of this debt. Thirty-five pews upon the main floor have now been sold. Music Hall. — Bryant’s Minstrel Troupe gave their first entertainment last evening at at Music Hall, and it is safe to say that no more pleasant or refined minstrel show has been given in this city for months. An excel lent programme was arranged and carried out in the most artistic manner. Part first was a real mnsical feast. Mr. J. W. Freeth and Al bert Welling, of the famous California Quar tette, each sang a song, the former “Eileen Allanna,” and the latter “Little Robin, tell Kitty I’m Coming.” Their sweet singing cer tainly entitles them to the reputation they bear of being the finest minstrel vocalists in the country. The “Merry Minstrel Entertain ment," by T. M. Hengler, followed, in which he introduced a fascinating darkey in Sweet Aleen, a captivating belle, and a wandering minstrel in a captivating manner. The banjo duet of Adams and Lee, the sketch by Goss and Fox, and the oratorical dissertation by Lew Benedict, too, were immense. The jokes throughout the entertainment were new, and> in short, the whole show was unusually enter taining. This afternoon this troupe give a matinee for ladies and children, and those wbo attend are sure to be well entertained. The troupe give their last entertainment this evening and they are sure to have a full house. Concert.—The Old Folks’ concert last even ing at Congress street church passed off very pleasantly. Several of the selections were very fine, especially the solos of Mrs. Milliken, “When the tide comes in,” and “Waft her, angels, through the skies.” Mrs. Noyes was in fine voice and rendered the cavatina “O Mio Fernando,” with fine taste. Her other solos were excellent. The male quartettes by Messrs. Stevens, Noyes, Tnkey and Adams were well sung. Chandler kindly volunteered and gave some fine music. Mutual Relief Association.—The month ly meeting of the Citizens’ Mutual Relief As sociation was held last evening. There was a good attendance'and forty members were re ceived, making the present membership 332. The matter of extending the territory of the association was postponed until the next meet ing. This association is in a very prosperous condition. Where to Purchase.—It is hardly necessa ry to say to intelligent readers that those par ties who advertise their goods are the most likely to have the best bargains to offer pur chasers. In our advertising columns will be found a large number of announcements which those wbo have a few dollars which they wish to put where they will do the most good, will do well to consult. Reform Club.—Several members of the Club addressed a small audience at Allen’s Corner last evening. To-morrow the Club will bold services at the Bethel at 10J o’clock, and a gospel temperance meetiog in the evening at the same place. Snatching a Ring.—Two boys made a com plaint to Officer Rice last evening tbat a man snatched a gold ring from them yesterday. The thief is well known to the police and will be arrested this morning.

Cr ange of Time.—The Maine Central, Bos ton & Maine and Eastern railroads announce a change of time May 1st. Personal. Judge Clifford and family have engaged rooms at the Preble for this summer. Street Sprinkling. Mr. Editor:—Beautiful spring has returned. As usual after the disappearance of snow and frost, we have clouds of dust whirled about as regular as spring products in the market;. Being fully aware that former articles have ap peared in regard to street sprinkling and that such are usually of a complaining nature, it may not be expected that this appeal to the city government will solicit much respect. Still there is a point where reason has a right to demaud attention, and here sues for consid eration in the mind of authority. I would re spectfully ask if the matter of laying the dust isjnot a subject for the consideration of the Board of Health? Nine-tenths of the people go along the street thoughtless of the properties and particles which are taken into the system. City people get little fresh air in the most, and when a good wind wafts us pure mountain breezes, our streets uprise and give us a grit y atmosphere. Every year it takes about so much time to get private subscriptions together be fore operations can begin. And ther, perhaps, some time after this organized and non-system atic course, some streets wet and others that cross dry, we have walked the former when they were muddy and seen the clouds of dust whirled by the wind from the latter and flock ing people and goods. And when the sugges tion is made for the city to sprinkle such streets and pay for the same by tax then, per contra, that no one would be willing to pay for what benefited other portions of the city than where they lived. But can there be a real es tate owner who would not receive a benefit when walking other streets than those in his immediate vicinity or the one on which he re sides? It is not a good disposition to he willing to receive a benefit and not bd willing to con tribute to its support. Healthfuiness is au im portant consideration ia the subject of laying the dust. And to lay it with salt water. Many living in the C'ty are subject to slow poisoning by iu-door life, and when they get out and want a good draught of pure air they are choked and sneezed up, ears aud eyes clogged np with dust composed of all manner of filih from the streets, too vile for mention. Admit ting that arguments may be used against the suggestion, but no sensible man or citizen whe has a spark ot liberality in him would with hold support for this purpose. Pedestrian.

There are said to be nearly one hundred wo men preachers in this country. The Friends’ quarterly meeting at Dover, just closed, was one of deep interest.

Ed wards of the Bangor Theological Seminary, to commence to laoor among them in June. The preachers at Cornell University this year will be Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, President Porter, Rev. Dr. Chapin and Rev. Dr. Peabody of Harvard College. It is found in the work of gathering the New Hippodrome converts within the churches, that many of them are reluctant to join any church, and there is a movement for a “Gospel hall” for their future spiritual nurture. At the annual meeting of the First Congrega" tional Parish in York, holdeu on the 10th inst., the right of suffrage was granted to the wo men of the parish, giving them the right to vote in parish affairs.

During 1875, 700 men were employed upon the restoration and completion of tbo Cathe dral at Cologne. The main work was on the towers, a number of which were completed up to the point at which the spires will be built upon them. The Cathedral was begun in 1250. Some ten or a dozen Congregational churches in Massachusetts have recently discontinued the afternoon preaching service. Some of these have preaching in the evening. The old fash ioned afternoon preaching service i s getting to be exceptional. Mr. Murray says that “Heaven is not popu lated with singing thieves or palm-bearing bankrupts, who settle with their creditors at 25 cents on the dollar Wednesday, and ride to church the next Sabbath in a $1000 ceach with a man in livery on the box.” The First Congregational church and parish of Bridgton, at meetings held last week, voted to extend a call to Rev. Henry Carpenter to become their pastor. Mr. Carpenter has sup plied the pulpit of the society for several weeks, to the great acceptance of his hearers. An exchange says: “Difficulty meetings” are now becoming popular among Sunday School teachers. Written statements of difficulties met with in the work may be prepared before hand or at the moment. These are handed in anonymously, and the whole company proceeds to solve the difficulties. The annual meeting of the Brunswick Bible Society was held Sunday evening, April 23d. The report of the officers showed that the soci ety is free from debt, owns its stock of bibles, and had as the result of a canvass, supplied all destitute families in town with bibles. The Secretary of the Maine Missionary So ciety (Congregational) announces that the treas ury is overdrawn $1500, and that the liabilities of the society from April 1 to June 30 will be about $5000. He appeals to all the people in the churches to raise as a thank offering for the success of the year in the missionary field. Rev.
