Friday.—State vs. Alexander Scott (alias Alexan der McCluskey) and Peter Dean. Robbery from the person of Nicholas Moore. Alexander Scott gave substantially the same ac eount of what transpired in the company ot Moore during the afternoon as Dean did. He testified that in McGlincliy’s and Murphy’s saloon Moore threw his coat oft’and stood at the bar lacing Murphy; that Moore then tore his shirt open to show what kind of a built man he was; that Dean picked up Moore’s coat and held it in a position for Moore to put it on; that then Moore turned, and with his list shut gave Dean a thump in the mouth; that Moore then whirled and hit him (Scott); that he returned the compliment and hit Moore; that ho then ran around the stove, Moore following him; that when he found he .could not escape Moore, they both clinched, they then being near to the door between the shDp and back room; that both fell, Scott on top, so that their feet were in the front shop and bodies in the back room; that Moore sung out “Enough— oh, my eye”; that Dean grabbed Scott, and Andrew McGlincby said, “I would not strike him any more” ; that Scott said “all right, if he lets me alone”; that they then made it all light by calling for the drinks. Scott denies that he took any money or saw anybody take any from Moore. He accounts lor having the knife, which was tonnd on him by the officer, by saying that he heard Moore say if any one undertook to arrest him, he would “have guts,” and he was afraid of Moore and got his knife from him under the pretence that he wanted it to cut tobacco with. Wm. Murphy, called by tne Government, testified that Moore slapped respondents in a friendly way, and Scott kuocked Moore into the dark room; that on getting a light and going tc them, he thought Dean and Scott were fingering around Moore’s pockets. A number of police officers testified to the bad reputation of each of the respondents for truth and voracity. Llewellyn Kidder, Recorder of Municipal Court, produced the records of the Court, showing that Scott ha9 been convicted of an assault upon one David Crocker, and of intoxication and disturbance; and showing that Dean was convicted of an assault and battery upon William Price. This testimony was admitted as affecting the credibility of the re spondents as witnesses. Verdict guilty. Libby, County Attorney. A. W. Bradbury for defendants. State vs. Lemuel A. Bickford and James E. Bick ford. Larceny of a bee-hive and two boxes of honey from Joseph] Leighton at Westbrook, .January 25th, 1876. On trial. Libby, County Attorney. Ridlou for defendant.

Appealed. l/Kimn ALilllCB.'-'A UO JCCIDIUUJ Ui rested a man named Piper,'who purchased tbo hose couplings stolen by Dwinel. The coup lings were plainly marked “City of Portland” and the purchaser must have known they had been stolen. The cellar of Mr. Payson Tucker’s house on Spruce street, was entered Thursday night and three tubs of butter stolen. George Turner was arrested yesterday lor stealing a piece of lead from the Rolling Mills. Marshal Bridges and officer Blethen arrested Dave Campbell last evening, for making the assault upon the old mau named Reaves, re cently referred to in this paper. Of coarse Campbell denies the charge. A sailor who had been drinking freely made a complaint last evening that he had been rob bed of $13 by a crowd of roughs on Pore street. Rapid Transit.—Messrs. Hillman & Met till yesterday, at 2 o’clock, received twelve case of goods, which were shipped from New Yorl at five o'clock the night before, and came b; the Merchants’ Dispatch Line over the ltocli ester road. This is the quickest time on record Brief Jottings. May is a skim-milk month When feebly does the pulse stir , ’Taint warm enough for a calico coat, > And you feel like afoot in an Ulster. : A large crew of men are employed construct iog the sewer in Chestnut street. An up-town man has set up every night for J the last month trying to catch a large rat. He has a large revolver at his side at ail times, and swears that if ever the rat appears he is dead, sure, but the rat doesn’t appear when he is watching for him. ■ Mr. Podcb has the frame of his new hotel np, and expects to have the first stoiy complet ed in season for this summer’s travel. The art editor of the Graphic should visit the Superior Court room while in town and picture the array of “talent” distributed through the rear of this room while some criminal is on trial. No place in New York can furnish such materia! for a pictuie. Chief Engineer Merrill lost his fine setter dog yesterday. The dog was left in the house in the afternoon, and when Mr. Merrill return ed at night he was found dead. Mr. George L. Fox, of Humpty Duinpty fame, is not violent, as has heeu stated. He is in an iusano asylum a short distance oat of Bos ton, where he remains perfectly calm although hopelessly insane. The yacht Vit was launched yesterday after noon. She will he finished at once. Mr. E. It. Sands has acceded to the earnest requestor some of our prominent citizens, and will repeat his lecture on “Sunshine, or how to make Horae Happy,” at Allen Mission, Mon day evening. The lecture isfspoken of in <he highest terms by those who have heard it. The police say there is no foundation for the story “that a seaman on the Monongahela makes complaint tliat he went into a saloon on Fore street or Commercial street, Thursday night, and was robbed while intoxicated, of $300,” as was stated in the Advertiser last eve ning. __ Mir. Wlieelock’a Benefit. A very large house greeted Mr. Wheelock on the occasion of his benefit la9t evening. Xhe audience was one rf the be3t of the season, was Cordial in its welcome, and testified its admira tion many times daring the play. So enthus iastic did it become at the eud of the fourth act, at the close of the famous scene where ‘Richelieu” threatens the^eoweriug Baradis with “the curse of Rome” that he was called before the audience three times. He was call tribute to so excellent aud deserving an actor may bs taken as significant of the general de sire that Mr. Wheelock shall lead the Museum company next season. Mr. Wheelock’s impersonation of the Car dinal Duke, the strongest and subtlest spirit which ruled France in the period that inter venes between Henri Quire and Napoleon, was in many respocts admirable. He conveyed a vivid impersonation of the great intriguer,the man who despised no great crimes and scorned no small arts in the furtherance of his aim, the spread of the power and glory of Frauce. One saw Armand Du Plessis as he was, a states man of grand ideas, bent upoa raising his countrvjjto the first rauk among nations, and remorselessly crushing every obstacle which stood in his way; capable of noble and gener ous deeds, aud of mean acts as well. In the crucial scene, whore he confronts “Baradas” Mr. Wheelock rose to the full height of the situation and his acting was lofty aud impas sioned. But in the passagisiu minor bey thye was sometimes a lack of fiuish, a need of study,—finish and study which so fine an ar tist is hardly to be excused for neglecting. As regards Mr. Wheelock’s make up there will b® difference of opinion, ft was certainly not the make-up to which we are accustomed, nor that which Bulwer indicates. But it has the ad vantage of being historically correct. At neither of the times of the two conspiracies which the English dramatist has patched into one, was the Cardinal an old man. Of the support two command warm praise. Miss Cameron’s “Julie'' was excellently done, impassioned and tender, aud in the “Baradas” of Mr. Snyder was seen a fine picture of the “dark gamster” whom Bichlieu conquered, the man who ventured his life against a throne aud lost. This evening‘tlia season at the Museum closes. At both performances, matinee and at night, “The Shaugbraun” will be given. Let the last houses be big ones. It ought to be unnecessary to remiud people that “Julius Cassar,” with four of the finest actors iu America iu the cist, will be brought out at the Museum Mouduy night. Many ex cellent seats yet remaiu unsold. Our Musicians Abroad.—A correspon dent of the Transcript writing from Florence has the following kind words for some of our Port land people: Miss Ella Lewis, possessed of a delicate so prauo voice and remarkable talent, has pursued her studies to great advantage, under the same able master with Mr. Sweet, and sings with a sion that never fail to charm alike the cultured and the.uncultured. Her unusually sympa thetic tones, though oftimes tremulous aud low, are of that rare, limpid sweetness, that appeals to the heart, even more than to critical intelligence. She recently sang delightfully the Bolero from the Sicilian Vespers; and with the pleasure it called forth, was mingled a gen eral regret that it had not been twice as long. This young lady, in addition to her own natu ral gifts, came abroad with the inestimable ad vantage of a foundation in Signor Vannuccini’s pure method, given to her by Mr. Dennett, a former pupil of this great master. In the mu sical reunions of this winter, we miss Mr. Stockbridge’s sweet tenor, and Mrs. Dennett’s highly cultivated and delightful contralto. False Rcmobs.—Ever since the first report concerning sm ill pox appeared, a week ago, there has been all sorts of rumors afloat in re gard to the spread of this dreadful disease. Yesterday there were several new ones started. It was said that a member of Mr. Files’ family (the principal of the North School) had taken the disease, also that a member of the Chestnut street school had been taken Lome sick with the tame disease. It was also reported that one physician had twelve cases on Munjoy Hill. Each aud all of these rumors are false, as the only person knowD to have the disease in this city is the little daughter ofJCapt. Farr. The mother nor neither of the boys have taken it. _ A Disgrace jo Himself.—There is a well dressed gentleman in town at present on a reg ular spree. He resides not a hundred miles from the city, and is stopping, while here, at one of the principal hotels. His son followed him to the city yesterday and tried to petsuade him to return home, but he has engaged a room for three weeks and is determined to stop his time out. He can be seen every day walk ing up and down Congress street, just as intox icated as it is possible for a man to be and still be able to walk. His son is almost frantic with grief at the course his parent is taking, aud to-day will take some measures to have him leave the city. Washouts.—There are several bad washouts on the Grand Trunk road which .interfere with the runuing of the trains. The road is over flowed at Stark so bad that the trains do not daro to cross. This side of Island Pond there is a washout which will require some time to fiil up. On the other side of the line there are several bad places caused by the lato storm. The upper end of the Ogdensburg road has suffered from the late rains severely. There ha3 not been a traiu through to St. Johnsbury since Wednesday. Yesterday the train ran as far as the Fab.vau House and returned. It is not known ko.v soon they can get the road re paired. Theatrical.—Mr. George Honey, the lead ing man at the Globe Theatre, Boston, who has made such a hit the past season in “Our Boys,” will start on a three weeks’ starring tnnr Ihrnnoh Vpw n,r],1 n,1 a nnPAri n v in “Our Boys” aud “Caste” in all the principal cities, after the closing of the Globe on the 27th inst, Among his company will be Miss Lilian Con way, Miss Laura Joyce, Mr. and Mrs. James W. Lanegan,Mr. H. S. Murdock and Mr. John XL Burnett. Doubtless Portland will be fav ored with a visit. Yarmouth.—At a regular meeting of Ulys ses Lodge No. 324, X. O. of G. T.,held Wednes day evening, the following officers were duly Installed: John M. Cobb, VV. C. T.; Miss Etta Leighton,W. V. T.; Byron D. Allen, Sec.; Miss M. Viunie Hitchcock, Ass't Sec.; Fred C. Roberts. Financial Sec. j Jacob H. Mitchell, Treas.; Rev. Geo. B. Illsley, Chaplain; St. John M. Bennett, W. M.; Miss Minnie Hods don, I. G.; Norman P. Grant, O. G.; Miss Hattie Leighton, Organist. Reap Estate Transfers.—Tho following are the real estate transfers recorded in this county yesterday: Deering—Lot of land from Artemus L. Rich ardson to Lucy R. Goddard. Scarborough—Lots of land containing eight i acres aud oue acre respectively, from John'!’. . Meserve to O. E. Xowell. Windham—Ijot of laud containing eleven • acres from William Bickford to Georgia Emery. DU. HILL'S HISTORICAL PAM PHLET. 1'oiuuacudutory, Correctional nutl Supple mentary. Dr. Hill’s pamphlet on the First Parish, printed for private distribution, 1 have just read. It is a work after my own heart. The First Parish has been favored from the first in having ministers who took an interest in pre serving its annals. What the learned Doctor has done for his parish should be done by the pastors of all the older religious societies of the city. What now appear to be only trifles, in after years will become important facts. The names of Smith and Deane as ministers would hardly now be known but for their valuable journals. A sketch of each of the societies of the city combined would form an interesting ecclesiastical history, which cannot be given in a general history of the city. I find in the appendix to Dr. Hill’s pam phlet, under the head of anecdotes, the follow ing paragraph which needs correction. Of course the Doctor knew nothing personally oi the occurrences described in it, and his in formant made several mistakes: The moving of the old house was effected by Jame3 Gowen, a somewhat pompous Friend, who was once elected representative from Westbrook to the General Court; and driving to Boston with a splendid span of colts, was surprised and mortified to find that he pro duced no sensible impression, and received no special attention on alighting at the State House. Gowen stood in the door of the old house, overlooking the long line of oxen hitched to its sills, and giving orders to their numerous drivers in a manner which, in Bpite of his Quaker principles, was evidently copied from that of a militia officer on training day. When the steeple and tower were removed, a line of sailors and oxen were drawing on ropes down Temple street, while the posts of the steeple were sawed off. * * * * The first act in the removal was the pulling down of tho spire. The force applied was the numerous spectators, men and boys, including myself. There might have been some “sail ors” on the rope, but there were no “oxen.” Thprtt nrp muntr oifiTona loft t»-Vw» tlao scene. When the steeple fell luy interest centered in the vane to ascertain if the tradi tional ballet bole was there, said to have been made by John H. Hall, a boat builder, with his breech-loading rifle, of which he was the first inventor, and for which he received a patent aud sold it to the United States gov ernment, for whom he superintended their manufacture at Harper’s Ferry for twenty years. The ballet hole was easily found, and before the vane was placed on the new spire a patch of copper was put over the place, which can now be seen with a glass. The old meeting house stood with its broad side to street the steeple was at the southwest end. The moving of the house was sideways, or directly back on to the school house lot. The building was first raised by wooden “bed screws”—the iron jack-screws had not then come into use. Timber ways and rolls, were then placed under the cross sills. The force ap plied was large tackles, worked by men with capstans, but not until the bed screws were ap plied to the front sill, would the venerable structure budge an inch. The contractor was Charles Frost senior, of Portland—he was the only man in the county who owned the necessary apparatus to do the moving. The frame of the old house was com posed of very large hard wood timber. “When that house arose; For its cross-beams square, Oak and walnut fell, Little worse for wear.” There ware on both sides large braces, fifteen or twenty feet long, framed into each post, just above the gallery, the other end reaching far out and secured to the cross beams. The ceiling was flat and plain. Mr. Frost was deceived in the immense weight of the building, which re quired more time aud force to remove it, than he expected. He was a man of great energy, and like Othello, he was sometimes “rude of speech,” which the following authentic auec dote will show. Ur. Nichols, the minister, inspected the work every day, aud from the glow progress made, he became anxious about his Sunday service, which it was intended to hold in the old house on its new site. He said “Mr. Frost, can’t you increase your force, so as to get the house into place by Saturday night?” The contractor was doing all in his power, and became restive under what he took as an iruphedj reproof, and replied, “Sir you must be aware that the gos pel moves slow, but to accommodate you Doc tor, we will do our d-dest.” In the manner described, the moving was finally accom plished. There was no “long line of oxen” and no “door” in the back side of the building for ‘■James Gowen of Westbrook” to have stood in to give orders, if he and the oxen had been there. But he had been dead three years—he was my grandfather and 1 write from my own knowledge. Dr. Hills informant had evidently got the moving of the meeting house in 1825, uiiavu IMVU «IUV umuiiu^ ua tuc UtU WU1 lUUUSO iu'181(j, The latter moving wag affected by long lines of oxen, and James Gowen presided, as described in the Piess of the 22d of January last. As to the drive to Boston with a splendid span of colts, it may be correct; Mr. Gowen had such a team, and from his weight they were convenient. Their performance on the road to town still lingers pleasantly in my boyish recollections. Mr. Gowen did represent his town of Falmouth two years, (West brook had not then been set off), and “driving to Boston” was then common. My father drove to the General Court at Boston in 1815, in a chaise with his trunk strapped to the axle, but be drove only one horse. As Windham was entitled to only one representative, of course it was considered a one horse town while Falmouth was entitled to two represen tatives, which may account for the “span.” Mr. Gowen attended the Quaker meeting, and favored their style of dress, and manner of speech, but was not a member of their society. An anecdote to supply the place of the one cor rected, will illustrate Mr. Gowen’s principles and standing with the Quakers—it was current in the neighbering towns sixty years ago. The The other member from Falmouth was Heze kiah Winslow of Poplar Ridge, who “after the stirctest sect of their religion he lived a” Quak er. While the two friends were seeing Boston, they stepped into a mock auction. Fom their green appearance they were at once spotted for ! victims by the auctioneer. Some tempting ar ticle was offered as a bait, and Winslow bid for it of course it was struck off to him, but while he was getting out his money, a worthless imi tation was substituted for that sold, which trick was detetcted by Mr. Gowen, who in formed his friend of the fraud. Mr. Winslow refused to take the aritcle, when the auctioneer ordered the door closed, to intimidato the two countrymen, and threatened them with vio lence. After a moment’s thought, Mr, Gowen began to loosen his overcoat, and said quietly to Mr. Winslow, “Hezekiab, thee keep thy coat buttoned, and hold mine. Thee is a member of the meeting, but I am not so much ot a Quaker as to prevent me from seeing fair play, even in Boston.** The swindling auctioneer found that be was mistaken in his men and or dered the door opened. The vain exhibition of his colts in front of the Boston State House—his “surprise and mortification,” I may be compelled to admit; but the statement that my ancestor walked off with the “Old Jerusalem,” in tow of a team of oxen “hitched to the sills,” is too incredtble to be considered by any one who recollects that venerable edifice. I deny it in toto. W.G. Windham, April 11th. Marine Notes.—The fishing steamer Bessie Snow arrived in the harbor yesterday with the schooner Mary A. Rice, which collided with the brig Anna D. Torrey, in tow. Ths steamer » 1. ~ .... 1 I_1 -.1 A r A : 1 out to sea. There had beeu a hole bored iu the bottom to sink her, but it had afterwards beeu stopped and an attempt made to tow her, as part of a tow line was attacheu to the bowsprit. Both masts are gone and she presents a sorry sight. It is not known where the crew are, as all the clearance papers were found on board. She is loaded with dressed granite, and hails from Bucksport. She will probably go on the railway for repairs. The crew of the brig Hattie E. Wheeler, which went ashore on Nantucket Sboals during the fog last Saturday, were taken off the same day by the tishing schooner Maud Gertrude and brought into Gloucester. The H. E. Wheel er is an abandoned wreck, and was owned by Phinney & Jackson of lhis city, as before re ported. Personal. Miss Annie Louise Cary sails on the steamer Italy from Liverpool for New York next Wed nesday. She will gave a grand concert in Mu sic Hall, Boston, under the special charge of Mr. A. P. Peck, some.time in July, after which she will sail for Europe to fill another year’s engagement in St. Petersburg and other cities where she sang the first year. ' Mr. George M. Putnam, a member of East ern Star Encampment and Ligonia Lodge of Odd Fellows, died yesterday morning.

Music Hall was well filled with a fine audience last evening, which of course was delighted with the entertainment.

This afternoon they give a matinee for the ladies and children, and the admission prices are put at 25 and 50 cents. They give their closing performance this evening when tho house will he crowded as it is one of the finest entertainments travelling. Temperance Reform —The meeting at Al len Mission last evening was full of interest, and the large audience was held until 10 o’clock and then seemed sorry to leave. Speeches were made daring the evening by Capt. J. B. Coyle, H. M. Bryant, Rev. Mr. Pickles, Capt. Sturdi vant, P. Stanton, S. H. Pearson, Mrs. Parting ton and Charles Choate.
