It docs look as though we might have a guiet Centennial Fourth of*July. The season at the >fu-eum closes on the 13ih Inst YesteYday was May Day. The callow youth who started out with Geutle Annie for May flowers thinking that spring time had come, declared that it was November, and cold at that. The Lewiston and Auburn people are right on hand with their programme for the celebra tion of tbe Fourth. Raymond’s juvenile class will give an exhibi tion at City Hall next Monday evening. The papers all speak highly of Buffalo Bill and Texas Jack. They appear at Music Hall Friday and Saturday evenings aud Saturday afternoon. Tbe sale of seats commences Wed nesday morning. Crocker will play on the Taunton Nine this Season. The afternoon train over the Grand .Trunk does not now connect with the trains over the Eastern road. Jonas Phillips, six years of age, whose par ents reside on Danforth street, was run over by a jigger Saturday afternoon, and his thigh fractured. Mrs. J. B. Mathews caught her boot-heel iu tbe carpet at tbe head of a flight of stairs at her residence on Cumberland street, Saturday night, and fell the entire flight injuring* her wrist badly. ■The records at the City Clerk’s office indicate 31 intentions of marriage and 65 deaths, re corded daring the month of April. Yesterday was not a real nice day to go May ing. Rather too chilly. Haverly’s Minstrels put out very attractive posters. The annual meetiug of tbe Masouic bodies commences this morning. Messrs. Freeman and McKenney have par chased the Hannah Watts lot on Cumberland street, and contemplate bnilding a block of two story mansard roof houses. The “May Day Riot” referred to in last night’s Advertiser tarns ont to be a very small disturbance between very small boys. Real Estate Transfers.—'Tho following are me real esiaic irausieio iccuiucu iu iuw * county yesterday: Freeport—Lot of land containing seventy four acres, and buildings tbereon, from Mary J. Townsend to Edgar C. Curtis. Gray—Lot of land containing one acre, with buildings thereron, from Martha and Simon Fogg to Warren Thayer.

Deering to William McLaughlin. . Westbrook—Lot and buildings from Abner G. Bickford to Charles W. Foye. Lot of land in Saccarappa Village from Emma L. and Abba Engenia Haskell to John Cloudman and Leander Valentine. Fiue Department Items.—It seems that the Committee on Fire Depaitment are and have been in favor of moving one of the hook and ladder trucks up town, but the last city government refused to vote mouey enough to defray the expenses of the removal. It is not at all lixely that the Washington track will be moved into the house on Market * street forth very good reason that the house is not long enongb, nor can it be made snitable fer it. The iron post in the centre of the House on India street is to be removed to give more room in driving in and out. Narrow Escape.—As the train due here at 6.15 last evening over the Ogdensburg road was coming around a sharp curve about a mile this side of White Bock, an intoxicated man was discovered on the track. The engineer whistled down brakes, but it was impossible to stop the train before it reached where the man was staudiog. Just as the locomotive was to Btrike the man he staggered from the track and the train went whizzing past. The engi neer says that a second more would have cosl the man his life. Mechanic Association.—At a recent meet ing of Mechanic Association the following com mittees were appointed: Library—J. M. Peck, A. H. Waite. Stepbei K. Marsh. Auditing—G.-A. Harmon, F. Pray, M.

The play given was Boucicault’s now cel e brated Irish drama, “The Shaughraun,” a pla; which commands success whenever presentei because of the wealth of its incident, thi strength of its situations, the smartness of it dialogue, and the variety of its scenery. 1 was brought out at the Museum with carefu preparation and great attention to detail, an< with remarkable scenic effects. Mr. Richard fairly surpassed himself, especially in the firs act, which was a rapid succession of fine scenes and in the old tower prison of the second act So far as regards scenic appointments “Thi Shaugraun” has justice done, and is put on ii a manner unexcelled this season at the Mnse urn. On the acting, some of which was excellent and much good, we have not time to dwell thi morning, though we cannot omit to mentioi Mr. Wheelock’s fine characterization of thi oareless, rollicking and warm-hearted Irisl vagabond, a characterization which great); tickled the fancy of the house, and brought hin an enthusiastic call before the curtain at tb close of the second act. Worthy of particula mention, too, was Miss Ulmer’s “Moya,” whicl was both tender and vivacious. At the end of the third act loud calls wen made for Mr. Wyer, and that gentleman ap peared before the curtain and briefly thankei the audience for their attendance.
