This is an action of trover to recover tli< value of a note given by the town treasurer of Otis field, Aug. 20th, 1880, payable on demand, for tb< sum of six hundred dollars. The testimony tended to show that the note ii . question was given to raise mouey to pay the indebt eduess of the town, and was made payable to Sumne Burnham or hearer; that in February, 1871, the not was present at a settlement betweeu the Treasurer S. D. Andrews, and the Selectmen, David S. An draws and the defendant Mayberry. The plaintiff claimed that at this settlement the note, having beei paid and numbered, was produced by the Treasure andpassed to Mayberry for cancellation, but tha instead of cancelling the note, the defendant fraudu lently laid it one side, and after keeping it foi over one year, put m circulation; aud that it was paid by the town a second time when presented bj one Pierce, a bona jide holder. The note being traced tc the defendant Mayberry he attempted to account for his possession of it bj saying that in May or June, 1871, he received th< note of M. G. Burnham, then residing in Norway but since deceased, in payment of a pair ot cattli sold Burnham; that when he received the note o Burnham, one year’s interest was indorsed upon it and that the indorsement was not made by defend ant. A large number of experts were introduced showing that the indorsement was in the handwritinj of the defendant, and it was claimed that it was pui on the note by defendant to give it the appearance o: an unpaid note. It was also claimed that there wer< erasures on the note aud other evidences of fraud 01 the part of the defendant. On the.part of the defendant it was claimed tha the hooks of the town were carelessly kept, and thai for aught that appeared there might be another note of the same description as the one paid. The case has been closely contested and was giver to the jury this afternoon. The jury returned i verdict for the town for the full value of the note and interest. Strout & Holmes for plaintiff.

The First church in the old town of Yar : mouth held a ceuteuuial tea party on the 2i inst., which deserves at least a passing notio = in the history of this anniversary year. Tb Chapel of the church was well filled with men *' women and children, very many of them mosi h appropriately dressed in the costume of “y olden time.” When assembled they made i happy group, all doing their best to revive tb feelings and exhibit the manners and custom ol the last century. All were astonished a ; the rich display of antiquities in all parts o the room. The old kitchen had a supper (able sprear with substantia! viands, such as we imagim our fathers fed upon; and spinning and liner wheels showing how they supplied their ward robes before the days of and cotton woolen fae tories. In an ante-room another supper table was spread. The table itself, ot solid polished mahogany, with curiously turned legs, was ol great pge and was covered with ancient silve: and daiuty old-fashioned china, and lighted with candles in solid silver candlesticks. Sur rounded by high-backed, old chairs and sup plied from a side table with meats and pastry it was an attractive place of resort throughout the evening. But the most interesting f-ature was a table tunning nearly the entire length of the chapel, covered with articles of every de scription, many of them centuries old. Two plates—one of wood, the other of curious old : china—were brought over in the Mayflower. A sword us 3d by lieutenant Drinkwater of > Yarmouth iu the (evolutionary war, caitridges made at tho same time; a drinking cup of horn, , found in a garrison house on one of the islands a coat-of-arms, granted to “Hugh Drinkwater, gentleman,” of the city of Aberdeen, Scot land, in 1G11; a pair of dainty whito kid slippers, the wedding slippers of a maiden who was young one hundred and fifty years ago, Books and manuscript there were iu greal numbers; an almanac for the year 1776; a copy ’ of a newspaper published in New York, which ; tvas iu mourning for the death of Gen. Wasb ! isgton. Most curious was a tiny book entitled “De vout Meditatious for every day in the month,” done out cf French, every word beautifully written in a close hand and perfectly legible, iuuu^u uv»uo 111 j cm lull, xxuutuci) atlll more ancient, was a volume of curious medical receipts in the old “black letter,” printed in 1582. Still another was entitled “Theological Questions, Dogmatical Observations, and Evan gftlical Essays upon the Gospel of St. Matthew,” printed in London, 1610. Then there were the old Bibles used in the First church at the time of its organization in 1730 and afterward; also the record books of the church and ■ town during their early ■ existence. Near the close of the evening a choir of singers in the costumes of ’76, led by D Bur bank, sang several of the “good old tunes," including “Auld Lang Syne,” and concluding with “Hail, Columbia,” which stirred patriotic emotions and delighted all lovers of good music. All voted in their hearts that they had had a “good time,” and, perhaps best of all, about $75 were added to the funds of the Society. The Change of Time.—It seems that the change of time on the Eastern and Maine Central roads was made in order to allow the trains over the former road to leave lor Boston at 1.30 p. m. as the Boston & Maine does. As the arrangement was the Boston & Maine were i in the habit of running their afternoon train out to the transfer station and there waiting for the arrival of the Maine Central; thus by tak ing the Boston & Maine the passengers could save half an hour. Now both trains leave at the same time and the Maine Central arrives before they start so as to make connection. In order to do this both the Lewiston and Bangor trains, in and out, have to meet in the yard near the Y. Bath trains coming in have two of the rear cars reserved for Portland passen gers, and when the trains arrive in the yard these cars are taken into the depot while the remainder of the two trains go to make up the train over the Eastern road for Boston. This train is made up on the Y and a car leaves the depot at 1 30 and is attached to it. It requires very sharp work to make up the trains on time and yes'.erday the Boston train was delayed about five minutes. The officials of the road claim that hereafter they can make up and leave just on time. It is said that the. Borton & Maine will change their time in a few days so as to leave the transfer station on the ariival of the Maine Central and thus got the start of the Eastern. The Grand Trunk road will make some change in their time table next Monday, hut just what change is not yet known. The prospect is that there will he much rivalry between the Boston >u>0 uvuouu, '-null i Ilium uiiu^ fcvF Ifcavu Boston first_ Cumberland Centre Farmers’ Club.— The Cumberland Centre Farmers’ Club, at their regular meeting held April 29th, voted to hold their annual cattle show and fair on the 3d and 4th days of October next, and to invite the citizens of Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Yarmouth and Falmouth to contribute as usual to the fair and show. The club,desirous of stim ulating the growing of yellow corn,voted to offer a special premium of §20 for the three best one half acres raised in either town, §10 for the first best,$G for the second and §4 for the third. All persons proposing to compete must notify the secretary, David L. Blanchard, of their in tention on or before the first of September, that the committee may have an opportunity to examine the corn in the field and to obtain such points relating to the mode of culture, cost of raising, etc A sample of the corn must bp exhibited at the fair in trace of not lass than titty ears. It was voted to pay a special premium of $10 ou the largest and best lots of vegetables raised and exhibited at the fair, as follows: $5 for the best, $3 for the sec ond, and $2 for the third. These premiu ms are open to all and it is hoped that it maybe instrumental in stimulating many persons to make the effort. The committee will be chosen t from each town. The club is doing a fine work • in stimulating its members to greater exer tions to raise more and buy less, and were ■ never in a more prosperous condition. They t had a pleasant reminder from Hon. J. H. Bur i leigh in a generous surpl.v of seeds from the Agricultural Depaitment, selected with his 1 usual good judgment of such seed as we in this 1 climate need. ‘ Henry Augustus Merrill —The intelli. gence of the death of this estimable young 1 man in Matanzas, Cuba, on the 2Gth of April last, was received by his many friends in this vicinity with great surprise and sorrow. He * had left his native city lor a ssa voyage to the 3 tropical climate of the West Indies in hopes tc 1 stay the progress of a disease which was rapid ’ ly undermining his health. He left his home and friends in the best of sjiirits, confident oi 3 his ultimate recovery, but how soon to be strick 3 en down in the early years of a life wliict promised so much brilliancy in the future! He • graduated with honor from the Portland Higl r School in the class of ’72, and immediately en * tered into mercantile pursuits where he shew as in school life, his superior ability and talents 1 and was respected and loved by all. His losi 9 will be keenly felt by his classmates, who e through rnaDy years of intimate friendship learned to appreciate him for his many gooc qualities and excellent traits of character ® From that little circle his pleasant words ani genial presence will he greatly missed, and hii 3 memory will he kindly treasured by them, win are now called upon to mourn their first loss. * 1 Vermont Trade.—About a week since a ' party of Vermont merchants came to town am made purchases. One of the number went ti Boston after inquiring prices and thought In would buy his goods there, but yesterday in ’ returned, satisfied that he could buy good j cheaper in Portland than in Boston, |e Another party of merchants came through yesterday and are at the City Hotel. Amon r_ the number are Messrs. George P. Harvey o j Morrisville, S. A. Nelson of West Burke, W gt A. Chapman of E ist St. Jolinshury, and A. C ^ Babbitt and Edgar Hunt of East Hardwick.

That the State of Maine is not wanting in I mineral resources is being every day made > manifest and by no single operation more so 1 than that of the Katahdin Iron Works. These i works are 50 miles northwest of Bangor, on a branch of the Piscataquis river, 18 miles from ! Milo on the Bangor & Piscataquis Railroad. 1 Operations were begun there as early as 1842 ' and a furnace erected and large amounts of 1 money have been expended at various times ; since that date, but generally with no profit to the parties engaged—owing partly to tlia long distance the iron had to bo hauled and partly from a want of proper management. The works passed into the hands of the present proprietor—then a resident of this city—in the winter of 1872-3 and have been kept steadily in operation since that time. The difficulties en countered have been very great, as the furnace and appliances had to be thoroughly rebuilt and tbe peculiarities in the ore could be ascer tained only by careful and expensive experi ments and chemical analysis. The induce ment that led to the starting of the furnace at the time was the want of a pig iron sufficiently pure for making Bessemer $tee), for which a great demand was tbeu beginning to spring up. It was believed that this ore was especially adapted for steel and the result obtained has proved this to be the case, so that the anomaly is now presented of pig iron being shipped from this state to Pennsylvania and New York. Several thousand tons having recently been shipped to Bethlehem, Penn., and Troy, N. Y., for this purpose, besides frequent shipments to the steel works at Jersey City and Trenton. The iron is also adapted for malleable castings, the demand for which is constantly increasing, and several establishments in Rhode Island and Connecticut are using the Katahdin daily for this work. It is an undoubted fact that iron exists in large quantities in northern Maine and the successful treating of this ore has demonstrat ed the fact of its possible importance to the future of the state, aud^suggests the value of a proper geological survey of the state to discov er and make known the opportunities for working it, as no single branch of business employs directly and indirectly a larger number of men, nor is any other product so essential to other industries as cheap and abundant iron. Mr. Davis keeps regularly employed about tnn T — _r__ri_a cords of wood were cut and hauled, some five thousand tons of ore dug and hauled and neat ly two thousand tons of irou made and shipped, employing on the aggregate during the winter about 150 men and 125 horses. The ore is a brown hemalite variety and results from the decomposition of a ledge of pyritifereous rock that seems to be thrown up through the neighboring slates, As now be ing mined there is a depth of 12 to 15 feet of solid ore, covering a space of several seres on the side of the ore mountain, and it is the opin ion of Mr. Davis from frequent observation of the neighboring rocks that the ore will he found in many other localities, enough to war rant the erection of additional furnaces. Connected with the works are 30,000 aeres of heavily wooded land, covered with white, yel low and gray birch, beech, maple and poplar of the right size for making charcoal. Beyond this point is the great unbroken forest, so that the supply of charcoal, which is the main point in most charcoal iron operations, may he said to be unlimited for years to come. The operation of iron making is an interesting one and during the summer and fall many visitors are attracted by it and the natural beauties of the scenery to spend a few days at the excel lent hotel at the iron works. The ore is blasted with powder and hauled (a half mile) to the furnace bunk where it is piled to the height of 8 or 10 feet on arches built of stone crossed with pieces of pig iron. Fires are then lighted in the arches and the ore is freed from the sulphur and changed from a brown to a deep red and purple color. It is carried from the arches to the top house and then charged into the furnace. The furnace itself is of stone, 9 feet in diameter in3ide and 35 feet high. This is first filled with charcoal and lighted at the bottom, and the blast supplied by powerful machinery applied through four tuyeres of 3 inches in diameter each, with a pressure of 1 J/WUUUU vu SUV UU1V iUVLi, KUO Vua 1 sinks at the top it is replaced with fresh coal and certain proportions of ore and limestone so that the furnace is kept constantly free at the top from month to month, the melted iron being drawn off at the bottom and cast into moulds in the sand. With the constant im provements being introduced in the process the product has been increased from 4 to 14 tons per day (24 hours), requiring the melting of 28 tons of ore, 3 tons of limestone and 1000 bush els of charcoal daily, yielding 14 tons of iron which is hauled at present by teams to Milo aud shipped by rail to Bangor. The makiDg of the large amount of charcoal is the most difficult part of the business and employs many men who bum it in kiins holding 50 cords of wood each, and for lack of sufficient kilns in pits, also under dirt. There are few busier places iu the state than this little settlement among tho hills of Piscat aquis county and few more worthy of a visit. A charter was obtained during the past winter from the Legislature, and it is understood that the works will he consolidated into a stock company and operations greatly enlarged and a railroad built this summer from Milo to Brownville, to accommodate the iron works and the slate quarries at the latter place. Maine Business Jfotes. The Journai says last week the Lewistou Bleachery bleached 128 ions of goods, more than ever before in its history. The works were run extra hours. Business at the bleach ery continues lively. The shoe business continues quiet in Au burn. Farwell Mill Company will commence im mediately to make 50,000 bricks at their yard in Lisbon. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY The Journal says another case of small pox and two more cases of varioloid seem to have developed in the same part of Auburn where the other cases have been. The disease is now confined to that part of Auburn known as Peiryville—upper Turner street and its neigh borhood. The Journal says Walter Smith, an employe at Wood’s steam mill, was severely burned, Friday forenoon, about the face and arms. The accident was occasioned by the sudden bursting of steam from tbe furnace. The Journal says Auburn has a floating debt of $40,000 which, it is argued, should now he funded, as Auburn boads are now selling at 1034 Scarlatina prevails in the vicinity of Lewis ton to some extent. The Journal says the New England Hotel near the Centennial grounds, is ready for guests. This hotel is owned by Lewiston part ies, is three stories high and contains 150 furn ished rooms. All the servants are from Lew iston and vicinity. This hotel is within one minute’s walk of tbe ma'in entrance to the principal exhibition building aud within three minutes walk of the new depot. The Journal says not half of the depositors who gave notice at the Auburn Savings Bank that they wanted their money, have come in for it as their notices matured. The published report has restored confidence. For some time past a party of boys in Au burn have irritated folks a good deal, by taking off gates, ringing door hells and performing s undry|miscl>ievous antics. One of them was arrested Thursday evening, and thus the whole nestful discovered. They were brought up on 1 Friday for an informal examination and dis , charged on their good behavior.
