MAY CIVIL AND CRIMINAL TERM, 1876, SYMONDS J., PRESIDING. Wednesday.—John W. Jones et als. vs. Georgi Burnham, Jr., et als. This was an action brough by the pl&lntifls as owners of the patents for packini green corn, granted to John W. Jones as assignee o Isaac Winslow to recover license fees from the de lendaut firm of Burnham & Morrill upon greet com packed by them under a license from plaintiff to use Bald patents dated August 25th, 1874. The defendants pleaded that these patents had been held void by the decision of the Supreme Court of th< United States in the case of Jones et als. vs. Sewall, admr. of Clark, and were allowed to use the opinion of the court, delivered in December last by Judge Hunt with the same force and effect as the record ol the case would have had if a final decree had been entered, no mandate having been received from Washington at the present time. They also plead that they had received no manner ot consideration or benefit, pecuniary or otherwise, from the taking of said license,but that the taking ot and packing lin ing under the same was an occasion of great loss to them. Also, that if there was originally any consid eration for their contract to pay license fees the same bad wholly tailed; and finally that the letters pa tent in question were known to the plaintitis to be void at the time they granted their license, and that (he defendants were induced to enter into the same by fraud of the plaintiff. It appeared in evidence that at the time this license was granted these patents had been sustained as valid by the opinion of Justice Clifford in the Maine Circuit in 1673; that after that opinion was delivered these defendants, who had previously assisted in and contributed to the defence of the suit of Jones and Sewali, concluded to no longer dispute the validity ot tbe patents, and took .the license in question by which they agreed to pay twenty-five cents per dozen for each dozen of cans of corn packed; that they worked under this license and paid royalty in 1871, but that when tbe time arrived for payment of amount due upon corn packed by them in 1875, they refused to pay until the case ot Jones and Sewali, then about to be beard at Washington, was decided, and after that decision was announced refused to pay at all upon the grounds above stated. After the evidence was out tbe court, deeming the questions involved to be wbolly matter of law, and that tbe same having been during tbe progress ot tbe trial discussed at length with elaborate reference to authorities on the part of counsel, ruled in substance as fellows: That tbe fact tbat tbe parties in Jones vs. Sewali were other than the parties in this suit, did not render tbe record of that case inadmissible against the plaintiffs in this suit,but that the record was im material, slnee even if the patents were invalid tbe defendants were liable at law for any license fees due upon com packed by them before giving notice to plaintiffs that they abandoned tbeir license, or be fore the decision was rendered in Jones vs. Sewali; and that, as regarded any fraud on the part of tbe plaintiffs, tbe defendants bad failed to establish even a prima facie case, and therefore directed the j ury to find a verdict for tbe plaintiffs for the sum op $8581.45, tbe full amount claimed. Defendants except, and tbe case goes forward to tbe Law Court upon questions of law above stated. Mattocks & Fox. Strout & Holmes. Mnicipal Conn. BEFOBE JUDGE KNIGHT. Wednesday.—George Webster.

On motion ot Alderman Fox a committee of conference was appointed to consider the mat ter of the appropriation. Messrs. Fox, Perry, I Greeley and Waterhouse were appointed on this committee on the part of this board. 1 Mr. Cushman, who was originally appointed, i declined to serve onthis committee for the reason that he was a member of the committee which arranged the programme for the celebration originally, and as it was thrown aside he did not propose to have anything further to do with it The committee of conference retired, and ; soon returned and reported that they had de_ cided upon $5000, and the board voted to con cur with the lower board in an order to that effect by a vote of 3 to 1. A committee to ex pend the same was appointed, consisting of the Mayor, Aldermen Fox, Perry, Greeley and Waterhouse. Mr. Cushman refused to serve for the reasons stated above. COMMON COUNCIL. Papers from the upper board were passed in concurrence, and Councilmen Brown, Boberts and Sargent were appointed a committee of conference in relation to the Market lot mat ter. President Small stated to the council that the chief object of the meeting was to see if the board would reconsider on the matter of appropriating $350 for the Fourth of July cele bration. Councilman Little, who voted for $350, moved to reconsider the vote. Councilman Cunningham was in favor of letting the matter go up to the other board and then if necessary appoint a committee of conference. He thought that if the board should vote to recon sider it would reflect on those who voted for $350. Councilman Andrews agreed with the former speaker and thought the board should adhere'to its former vote. He thought it too late to arrange for a suitable celebration, Councilman Brown thought there was plenty of time to get up a celebration while Council man Roberts thought there was not and was in faver of adhering. It was voted to reconsider Mr. Little’s motion. On motion of Councilman Brown Messrs. Walker, Andrews, Roberts, Somerby, Cun ningham, Enowlton and Leach were appointed a committee of conference to confer with the committee from the upper board. The committee retired and soon relumed andjthe chairman reported the adoption of an order appropriating $5000. On motion of Councilman Cunningham the vote was taken on yeas and nays in order to put the members on record, and the order re ported was adopted 9 to 8. It was then proposed to appoint a committee who with the committee appointed by the other board, will arrange the celebration. To prevent the appointment of this committee a motion was made to adjourn, hut was not car ried. The President appointed the committee who arranged the former programme to serve in this connection. Councilman Cunningham objected to tbis, but the board voted that they should serve. Then Mr. Andrews asked to be excused for the reason that he did not vote for the celebration and he thought tkoce who did should get it up. The board was about to ac cept the resignation when Mr. Cunningham suggested that they could not do so as they had just voted that the committee appointed should serve. At tbis point a motion to adjourn was made and carried. Maine 100 Years Ago.—The Transcript this week contains an account of a vendrable public document containing very interesting centen nial relics. It is a report of the Committee of Valuation, made to the General Court of Mass achusetts in 1803. It contains a list of all the towns in the Commonwealth, of course includ ing Maine, with the number of polls in each, the aggregate valuation and the rate of taxa tion. It shows the relative importance of the principal towns in Maine at the beginning of the present century as indicated by these tables. The District of Maine was then divided into six counties, viz: York, Cumberland, Lincoln, Kennebec, Hancock and Washington. The ag gregate polls in these several countios was as follows: York, 8107; Cumberland, 8G12; Lin coln, 6225; Kennebec, 5149; Hancock, 3475; Washington, 738. Among the towns Portland leads off with 1001 polls, and next came Wells with 866, and Berwick with 840. Ten years before, in 1793, Portland had but 560 polls, while Berwick had 848 and Wells 837. Down to 1803 no other town in Maine besides these three had over 800 polls. But Falmouth made a good show with 756 voters, and Kittery was close behind with 711. Then came York with 607, North Yarmouth 601, Scarboro 51G, Free port 515, Gorham 507, Pepperelboro (Saco) 434, Arundel (Keunebunkport) 418, Brunswick 428, Poland 432, Bristol 431, Buxton 403.

The total valuation of Massachusetts aggregated $5,187, 313.98, of which less than one million is credited to Maine.

It was evi dent that everybody that had attended their first performance was again present and had bronght their friends, for the City Hall was packed. This is a better testimony to the merits of the entertainment they offer than anything that can be written. The musical part of the entertainment was of a high order and well merited the applanse it woo. But whatever may be said, it is Sol Smith Russell Russell aBd the Berger Family and not vice versa. The audience was best satisfied when he was upon the stage, and although he was very generous with his efforts, shew no signs of weariness. He is a humorist of rare qualities and bis various impersonations keep the audi ence in continual laughter.

A Denial.—A Lewiston gentleman who is a member of the Fourth of July Committee, writes: In the issue of May 3d, under the head of “Brief Jottings,” the Press says: It appears that Lewistou people have been in Portland soliciting subscriptions for the 4th of July cele bration. If such be the case it is a matter which the committee of arrangements have no knowledge of. We shall be glad to see any of the Portland people who may And it convenient to spend the day in Lewiston, but as for asking them to contribute money for the benefit of the celebration it is a matter entirely foreign to our expectations. Our reporter says that he had good authority for the statement. The Museum.—The “Shaughraun” proves a great card at the Museum, and draws large houses, as it deserves. The beauty of the scenery, the merit of the acting, and the inter est of the play combine to form the greatest attraction of the theatrical season. This morning the sale of seats for Mr. Bas comb’s benefit opens. This meritorious actor has given some fine characterizations during the season, and bis efforts to please deserve substantial recognition. He merits a full house.

The work will not be offer ed for sale in bookstores until subscribers have been furnished with copies, Mr. John Russell, 48 Exchange street, is agent. Wateryille Sayings Bank. The suspension of the Waterville Bank is made necessary by a long continued run, and is a measure of protection to the depositors. The deposits two years ago were $666,000, last No vember, a little less than half a million, and now tnere is due depositors $427,232 45. The bad investments which have caused the trouble were made in the early days of the bank, and under the good management which has prevailed would have been disposed of without much loss; but the lack of public confidence proved disastrous. Mr. Bolster, the Examiner, finds the sum of $425,232 45 due depositors, and an apparent deficiency in the assets of $30,601. He expresses the opinion that the bank will pay at least 75 per cent., and possibly 90. The bank had some 1900 depositors living in Waterville and in adjoining towns. The larger number did not average over $500 in deposits, while there were two whose deposits were be tween $2000 and $3000 each. These two are the heaviest; one of them is trustee of the bank, D. ft. Wing, one of the proprietors of the Mail newspaper. The bank was organized in 1S69, and its first deposit was railroad securities. There has been a quiet but constant run on the bank for the past six months, and the withdrawal of depos its has been from $1000 te $5000 a week up to the present time. The bank has been subject ed to such a dram that finally it had to shut down on answered calls to the amount of aboct $55,000. The suspension was rendered abso lutely necessary, and in the interest of deposi tors was regarded by the trustess as wise and judicious. The Examiner is convinced that there is no irregularity on the part of the officers, who are all men of integrity and who have all labored earnestly, faithfully and diligently in the inter est of depositors, and without compensation. The run on the bank is no fault of the officers, but the fault of the depositors. Mr. Bolster says not one dollar of the bank, so the books show, was ever used, directly or indirectly, by the officers. Two years ago when Hon, Beuben Foster was made President of the bank, its management was changed for the better, and every effort was made to get rid of its depreci ated or non-paying securities and in investing in available assets. This policy has been pur sued down to the present time, and had no run bsen made the officers could in a year or two have placed the institution on a footing to have met nromntlv its liabilities. Indeed, the trns. tees are cow of the opinion that if allowed to go on they can pay every dollar the bank owes before two years expire. But this a matter for the depositors to decide, some of whom are de cidedly opposed to having the bank go into' liquidation. STATE NEWS. ANDR03C0GGLN COUNTY The Journal says, Tuesday forenoon Carl Henry Beynolds, a five year old lad, son of Dr. H.
