I left there on the same day aud arrived here in Portland about 5 p.m., with about $300 in my pocket; went into Toony’s and got a drink; there met Scotty ana Dean for the first time; they went with me to Brownrig’s, or “Bob Peel’s,” where I engaged board; then we returned to Toony’s and there I treated all hands, some ten in all: handed out a ten dollar bill to the bar tender and he returned me the change; had a game of cards with Scotty, Dean and another man, whose name I do not know; drank there three or lour times, strong liquor; then they fetched me to have a game of pool to a place called McGlinchy’s ; it was not dark at that time; played pool with Scotty and Dean and another lellow; the other fellow “got stuck,” but I paid, and we had more drinks; left McGlinchy’s little after six o’clock; my money was all right then; then we went to Mrs. Shields* and had some pop beer, five or six driaks. I was then tho worse for liquor, but I was not drunk; Scotty sung “Teddy O’Neal” in there; I joined in the chorus; I then took my coat off', because something was said about measuring my breast;Jtbe money was in the coat; I put my coat on immediately without being measured; there was a man there in his shirt sleeves—I do not know his name, but believe he was one of her board ers ; little scrip dropped out of my coat pocket and this boarder picked it up and handed it to me; we then went into Langdon’s; do not know what I did in there; I was kind of senseless and stupid; it was then between 8 and 9 o’clock; from there 1 do not kuow where they .took me; next I recollect was when I was getting a beating in McGlinchy’s and Mur phy’s; one ot the defendants was beating mo and the other was fumbling in my pockets; cannot tell which was beating me or which was searching my pockets, but am sure only Scotty and Dean were about me. H afterwards wont onto the street.

First Performance of “Theodora’’ ii : America. i- " The renditiou of “Thoodora” by the Ilaydi Association last evening was most successful and onco beard so favorably, this lovely an< noble work of the composer can never be agaii relegated to the neglect which has long been it . unjust fate. The cordial thanks of all who wen fortunate enough to hear it are due to the mu sical knowledgo and enthusiasm of the fricni - of good music at whose suggestion the Hay dns studied “Theodora”; to Mr. Coyle, whose genuine love of what is best in his art ant prompt, wise and vigorous management con. stantly encourage and direct the efforts of the society; to Mr. Kotzschmar, whose appre ciation and delight in music instautly com municate themselves through Lis spirited baton to the forces under his control; and, finally, tc all of the performers who acquitted themselves so faithfully and well. The overture, in G minor, is admirable. It consists of four well contrasted movements, a stately aud impressivo maestoso, an interesting fugue, a simple but exquisitely lovely passage in E flat, which though marked “Trio” has neither of the technical traits of that form of composition, but is in the minuet manner. The Courante which, returning tojthe original key, concludes the overture, is energetic and entirely Handeliau in style. The opening reci tative aud air are allotted to Valens, and a des cription of theso applies equally to all the music of his part. It is large, forcible and warlike, in the grandiose manner, full of superb storms of rage of Handel’s “Polyphemus,”or Harapha— it is indeed in “Ercles vein, the tyrant’s vein,” and gives a Rembrandt-like shade to the pure coloring of the solo music of the other charac ters. Tho part of Theodora is exceedingly beauti ful in its dramatic effect; and the pathos, delicacy and strength of the music allotted to her is one of the most finished delineations of the composer. Her first aria, “Fond, flatter ingworld,”is dignified audexalted. “Angels P.VP.r liritrhf. anrllfai'p ” la fan nrnll Irnnmn 4-a ..aa/1 praise here, for it has long been appreciated as one of the most beautiful of sacred songs. “With darkness deep” is filled with pathos and the accompaniment enforces the expres sion ol the vocal part with full-scored and ex pressive harmonies. “O that I on wings could rise” is a more elaborate air; and, although beautiful in itself, has less interest than the preceding one. In the prison scene with I lid i in us, Theodora’s song “The pilgrim’s home” is at once intense and pathetic, plead ing and forcible. The duet “To thee” is full of courage and exalted tenderness. The duet of Theodora and Irene is well contrasted in its fervor of dramatic characterization, tho loving solicitude of Irene and the hope and resolution of Theodora are a beautiful sketch which Han del was not slow to color with matchless skill. The closing duet of Theodora and Didiinus has an expression of repose and unshaken trustful ness; the voices move together for the most in parallel thirds, giving a harmonic effect of singular sweetness and purity. The part of Irene contains the fioe air “Bane of virtue;” tho pleasing “As with rosy steps the morn“Defend her, heaven,” the expres sion of which seems at times delayed by nu merous notes, and consequently lacking in point and spontaneity. The air “Lord, to thee” is one of the noblest and most beautiful of the many that Handel has written for a con tralto voice—a part to which he has allotted much of his most intense and pathetic music. In the part of Didimus tho air "The rap tured soul” is powerful and exalted, embel lished with the roulades that are familiar to lovers of Handel. “Kind Heaven, if virtue” is an air somewhat in the mauner of the composer’s operatic writing, at once tune ful. strong and natural in the highest degree. “Sweet rose and lily” is tender and melodi ous. Among the airs of Septimius “Descend, kind Pity” is notably lino; “Dread the Fruits of Christian folly” is a florid song,'an excellent specimen of its kind. “Though the honors’’ is vigorous and manly. “From Virtue Springs” is earnest and expressive. Of the numerous recitatives of the oratorio it is enough to say that they are full of the dig! nity, variety of characterization, and beauty of declamation by means of appropriate intervals that are always to be noted in Handel’s writing in this department. The choruses are, in general, less elaborate as they are less numerous, than those of the composer’s weightier oratorios—the “Messiah” ■ “Samson” &c. Tho first chorus “And Draw a Blessing|Down” is spirited. That in which is declared the penalty of refusal to sacrifice to the heathen gods, has a singular interest apart Liuui ito uiciib. -luo urat measures oi it are nearly identical with those of the “Pastoral Symphony” in the “Messiah”; which the dis covery Iwitbin a few years of a manuscript bearing in Handel’s autograph the significant note, “Novena"—as well as the internal evidence of its peculiar measure and rhythm—proves to have been derived from the hymns, which for countless years, it has been the custom of the mountaineers of the country around Rome to sing before the wayside shrines of the virgin, during the nine days (novena) preceding Christ, mas. These days are precisely those, it is well known; of the old heathen Saturnalia—whose pagan license became later Christian liberty, and whose songs A revelry, it is by no means impos sible, were retained—as were some of the curiouj superstitions of that period—unchanged in form but converted to higher meaning. How far this theory of ours is to be credited, it is a* this time, of course, impossible to say; but one thing is sure, that Handel had profound koowl. edge of musical history, and a sublime sense of the fitness of things which gave to his work much of its eternal weight and authority. The remaining choruses of Romans “Queen of Sum mer” and “Venus, laughing from the skies” are spontaneous, brilliant and full of luxuriant gaiety—fit hymns to celebrate the golden myth of the goddess bore of the light foam of the sea. Among the choruses of Chris' tians, “Come, mighty Father,” and All power in Heaven above” are serious and contain much admirable writing. "Go, generous, piou3 youth” is exceedingly beautiful, sympathetic and forms a fine close to the first part of the oratorio. The most important number of the Work is the chorus “He saw the lorely youth.” This is written in three distinct movements; the first of which, plaintive and woeful, re* lates the death of the widow’s son at Nain. The lamenting voices follow each other as if in sad procession, tearful and unlit by any hope—until after a little silence with a sudden change of key and tempo, occurs the words “Else youth, he said.” This brief passage, like a ray of sudden sun—precedes a sunsrb fugue “Lowly the matron bowed.” Too much admiration cannot be given to this wonderful chorus, which the scope of dramatic expres sion and technical treatment combine to make one of Handel’s greatest inspirations. The concluding choiuses “How strange their ends,” and “Oh, Love Divine,” blend loving grief for the sad fate of the martyrs, with hopo and re joicing lor their strength and faith. The part of Theodora was precisely suited to the pure, largo voice and dignified, sincere style of Mrs. Wetherbee. She is a singer who pos sesses the “grand manner” of the traditional school of singing; and hor exquisite finish of execution and noble voice were heard to great advantage. Mrs. Goudy, to whom was given the part of Didimus, sang with marked dramatic effect. Her rich contralto improves constantly in the using, and has a warm, shadowy quality that is Miss Mil like u made her debut as Irene, and sang very sweetly. Her voice gives much promise of future excellence; it is a fresh girlish contralto, with facility in its upper range, and sweet and round in tone. She is evidently well grounded in the elements of music, too often ueglecte 1 by Joung singers; and her care and accuracy of time and phras ing deserve much Jpraise. Study will develop the many good qualities oi this youthful voice. Mr. Coyle sang the music of Valins with great spirit and effect. He possesses the valu able power of losing himself entirely in his part, and singing with an unconstrained and spontaneous force that results most happily. His rich, powerful lasso, fine phrasing and genuine dramatic power were admirably dis played, and arc well fitted to render Handel’s music. Mr. Thurston’s round, mellow tenor and re fined, manly singing were, as always, most de lightful and satisfactory. The recitatives of the Messenger were well delivered by Mr. Jordan. The chorus sang, as is their wont, with ad. inirable precision and intelligence. The effect, as of the muted strings of an orchestra, in the funeral chorus; tho superb harmonic effect in the closing portion of “All power in heaven;’ i and the lovely “Go, gentle pious youth” attes ts! the flno training of the singers in especial points, while each and every chorus was proof o£ their general excellence. Mr. Kotzschmar conducted with his usual fire and spirit. Miss 1 Blanchard’s accompaniments were careful, sympathetic and in every way successful. Her earnest study is rewarding her richly, in an ex ceedingly good technique, and appreciative! ‘ delicate and sufficiently powerful style. [ OF the REFORMER*. Mecond find Closing l»ny of the Rnlly of Hie Reform Clubs—Very IntereMing Meetings at l ily Hull. The rally of the Reform Clubs came to a close last evening after a very profitable session of two days. A praise meeting was held a£ City Hall at 10.J o’clock yesterday morning. The exercises were opened with singing “Nearer my God to Thee;” by tho audience, Eev. Mr Perkins of Casco street church then read the Scriptures and offered a fervent prayer. The audience then sung “The Temperance Light is Breaking.” Short addresses followed from Messrs. Hinckley of Auburn, W. Langley of Bangor, A, T. Hillman of Auburn, G. Smith of Portland, Capt. Choate of Portland, Mr. Carle of the Boston Temperance Album, Messrs. Withington of Bnckfield, Kilby and Webb of Skowhegan, Bryant ot Lewiston, Skillins of Gray, Eev. Messrs. Perkins and Southworth of Portland, Pickles of North Auburn, Messrs. Nichols of Lisbon, Bowers of Portland, Taylor and Emerson of Bowdoinham, Mrs. L. C. Part ington, Mrs. Wilbur aad Mrs. Leavitt. In the afternoon a meeting was held at City Hall, which was fairly attended. The exer cises opened with singing the familiar Corona tion, followed by reading of the Scriptures and prayer by the Chaplain of the Portland Eeform Club. After a formal invitation to the Presi ,1 ~„ .. C *1 _1 li.f . ni. 1 . a uiuvtvuvxtviuiui VIUUO iojm>oc u ucu to take seats upon the platform, JMrs. Clark sung the song beginning "Where hast thou gleaned today.” The opening address was made by the Presi dent of the Portland Club, who said they had met there not to please the high toned, who come out of curiosity or to criticise, but to lift up tbe fallen. Mr. Williams, Vice President of the Port land Club, was called upon and said he was in duced to sign the pledge through the efforts of the club and by moral suasion alone. He was a hater of King Alcohol and a lover of the Lord Jesus Christ. Mr. Webb, President of the Skowhegan Re. form Club, said, he too, like the preceding speaker, became a reformed man through the efforts of these organizations. The Skowhegan Club though but two and one half months old, had 480 names on the iron-clad pledge and 700 on the general pledge. He spoke highly of wo man’s effort in the cause, attributing a large part of its success to her influence. Mr. Skillins of the Gray Reform Club, fol lowed in much the same vein, and saM the more he labored for the cause the more he wanted to. Mr. Dow, President of the Dry Mills Reform Club of Gray, said there could not be fonnd a drunken man in that community. The move ment there had raised many who had been in the deepest poverty from their drinking habits to comfort. Mr. Horton, Vice President of the North Auburn Club, attributed his salvation to the influence of the Reform movement. He sign ed the pledge once, and relying upon upon him self solely he fell. But he had signed it again, and by the help of the Saviour, had been en' abled to keep it. Mr. Taylor of the Bowdoinham Club, said he was glad to be able to return to his home and tell his people that the prospect looked encour aging for Portland. Mr. Langley of the Bangor Club, said he was about played, or in other words, his wind was about gone, he had been booting so much of late. He said that he had labored for twenty four years to reform, but did not succeed be cause he did not go to work in the right way. He impressed upon his audience the necessity of invoking the assistance of God and the dan ger of relying solely on one’s own effort. Mr, Martin Hyer of the Portland Club, said he had suffered for thirty years from the effects of the intoxicating cup. Eighteen months ago he signed the pledge and had been enabled to keep it, and today he was a happy man with a happy family. Mr. McCurdy of the Lisbon Club, said that while he believed in moral suasion, still, he thought there were cases where the whip could be used with profit. After the speeches the pledge was circulated and obtained 61 signers. In the evening an immenso audience gather nrl flllinir nirovir Dnof- in *lt/. Lnll nnJ mnnn turned away for want of standing room. The exercises opened with 6inging “All hail the power of Jesus name.” The hymn was sung with floe effect by the vast audience, inspiring all present. Chaplain Perry of the Portland Club, read the Scriptures and offered prayer. The President stated that each speaker would be allowed but ten minutes as there were a large number to speak. He introduced George E. Smith, Vice President of the Portland Club, as the first speaker of the evening. He gave a recital of his past life, and spoke highly of the labors of the temperance women of Portland. It was through their labors and prayers that .e was induced to sign the pledge. Mr. Hideout of the Lewiston Club, was the next speaker. His remarks were closely listen ened to and he was frequently applauded. C. D. Goodwin of the Buckfield Club, spoke in a very earnest manner and held the closest attention of the audience throughout. Mr. George Facey of the Portland Club, was next introduced. No one can hear him talk and donbt but what his heart is in the work which he advocates. H. M. Bryant of Lewiston, spoke in his usuaj fluent style, and was listened to closely through, out. Mr. Bryant is an able speaker and an able worker in the temperance cause. President Pearson of the Portland Club then told the story of his reformation. Borne who were piesent could testify to the truth of the statement in regard to a certain Christian gentleman who took this man Irom a building near this office in an intoxicated state and car ried him to the Allen Mission, where he signed the pledge, which he has kept to this day. At the close of his remarks an invitation was extended to all to sign the pledge. A large number responded while those on the platform sang temperance songs. Among the number who signed was a man who was under the in fluence of liquor, having a bottle half full of whiskey in his pocket. After signing he flung the bottle out of the window. This incident caused great enthusiasm and many signatures followed. Kev. Mr, Pickles of North Auburn, President Brigham of Buckfield, and several others fol lowed in stirring remark, the meeting continu ing until 11 o’clock. About 300 S'gued the pledgo during the evening. The meeting was the most enthusiastic that has been held in vikj uau mi duiuu iiiLilt* iuo raiiy ua* uctiu very successful, aud will no doubt create a new interest in the temperance canse in this vicini ty.

ME. myll tf To All, particularly invalids, spring is a trying season. Indications of sickness should at once be at tended to. Fatal diseases may be caused by allow ing the bowels to become constipated, and tho system to remain in a disordered condition, until the disor der has time to develop itself. An ounce of preven tion is worth a pound of cure, is an old and truthful saying. Therefore, we advise all who aro troubled with the complaints now very prevalent—headache, indigestion, disordered liver, want of appetite, nau sea. or feverish skin,to take, without delay, Scbcnck’s Maudrake Pills. We know of no remedy so harm less and decisive in its action. It at once strikes at the root of the disease and produces a healthy tone to the system. People never need suffer from any dis ease arising from a disordered condition, of tho liver if they would take this excellent medicine when they feel the first indications of the malady. Families leaving home for the summer months should take three or four boxes of these pills with them. They have an almost instantaneous effect. They will re lieve the patient of headache in one or two hours, and will rapidly cleanse the liver of surrounding bile, and will effectually prevent a bilious attack. They are sold by all druggists. jyl4 iuylcodlm3dp&wsn Lawn Mowers. If yon Irani n Jloafr, write for ■pecinl prior. Very tow.
