It was the largest sale of tho kind ever held in Portland and a large number of people were in attendance. All who like sunshine and to know how to make home happy should be at the Allen Mis sion this evening. Besides, the proceeds go to help this noble charity. The Allen Mission was crowded last evening by an intelligent audience who were deeply in terested in the earnest and eloquent addresses by Hon. Neal Dow, and Geo. K.

A Curiosity.—In the old .town of Kenne bunk there lives an old lady aged 100 years, named Ross. This lady lias a daughter, who has a daughter, who has a daughter, who has a daughter, making five generations, and they all live in one house. Tub Museum.—Saturday night llio regular season at the Museum came to a close, the “Shaughraun” being performed. At {the con clusion of the play Mr. Wheelock, in compli ance with a request made, stepped before the curtain and delivered in his inimitable mauner that fine poem, Sharnus O'Brien, greatly to the gratification of all present. The season has been thirty-six weeks in length, and from a dramatic if not from a pe cuniary point of view has been a marked suc cess. The company has been a live one, the plays well selected and admirably presented. Mr. Wyer has certainly spared no endeavors to make the Museum au excellent place of enter tainment, and his efforts command hearty praise. Thi3 evening the great tragedy of “Julius Cassar” will be brought out at the Museum by the famous company from Booth’s Theatre. The opportunity to see a play like this present ed so finely, is rarely offered, and is one which no oue can afford to neglect. Four of the lead ing actors in the country, Lawrence Barrett, E. L. Davenport, Frank Bangs aud Milnes Levick, assume the roles of “Cassius,” “Bru tus,” “Authouy,” and “Cmsar,” aud they are supported by a full dramatic company. The representation is by the best dramatic critics held to be the most meritorious ever put upou the American boards, and has everywhere evoked enthusiastic praise. The acting is ad mirable, the cast could not be bettered, and the scenic effects are simply perfect. Indeed, so fine a representation is given of republican Rome and its costumes that the professots and students of Yale College went to New Y’ork in a body in order to see the play and embrace so favorable an opportunity to study Iiomon an tiquities. We repeat that neither the lover of fiue acting nor the historical student can afford to neglect the opportunity. Good seats may yet be secured. The following is the cast: Caius Cassius.

Chase, editor of the Vermont Union, who was in town last week, .sends a very interesting let ter to his piper. From this letter we should judge be had “seen” Portland to a large ex tent and was pleased with the sight. His paper contains the cards of about sixty of our whole sale dealers. In speaking of the business of Portland he says: In a business point of view Portland far ex ceeded our expectation. It is a city of wide awake, enterprising merchants and business men. A few years ago what is now Commer cial streetj for over a mile in length, was under water. This has been built ud from the sea and lined on both sides with wholesale business blocks, the main railways running through the middle of the street, delivering heavy goods in to the very doors of the stores. This saves trucking from the depots, which wholesale merchants consider au important point gained. This is the main street in the city for heavy trade and every hour in the day it presents a picture of lively business. Competition is al ways active, keeping prices at the lowest point, and all the traders ask of Vermont people is to give them a trial. There are numeious large houses embracing every branch of the trade. The city contains 35 business and mnufactur ing corporations, among the most extensive of which arc the Portland Bolling Mills, employ ing a force of 200 men and doing a business of 81,000,000a year. The Portland Co., for the manufacture of locomotives and all kind of railroaii work. This company employs about 300 hands and seods its work all over the coun try. The Portland Kerosene Oil Co., capital $200,000, with capacity to manufacture 4,000, 000 gallons. The Portland Star Match Co,, Portland Machine Works, Forest City Sugar Kefinery, Presumpscot Iron Co., etc. Besides incorporated companies there are many private firms largely engaged in the manufacture of all kinds of goods. Daring the past ten years manufacturing enterprises have been steadily increasing, aud at the present time the tenden cy to increase is stronger than ever. Portland is determined to be one of the principal manu facturing points in New Boland. SUNDAY SERVICES. CONGRESS STREET M. E. CHURCH. The new pastor, Kev. M. M. Sterling, yes terday preached from St. John xv, 5: “I am the vine,ye are the branches.” He commenced by saying that thero were different opinions as to what called forth this remark of our Lord. Some think that it was a vine over the church door; others that it was a vine that grew against the hoase where the Pas3over was held. But it would seem to be the grape vine from which the grapes were gathered to make the wine used for the feasts. At any rate the les son taught is, the close relation that should ex ist between Christ and his followers. We can not subsist as Christians outside of Christ, any more than a branch can live severed from the vine. If we are closely connected to Christ as the branches are to the vine, no duty will be irksome, no matter how mach of a cross it may be. The discourse abounded in apt illustra tions and was listened to with the closest at tention. PARK STREET CHURCH. Rev. Mr. Vinal of Kennebuuk, occupied the pulpit at Park street church yesterday. A Sad Plight.—A fine appearing young couple from Lisbon appeared at the station Saturday night for lodging. It appears that this couple were married just a month ago and have been on a bridal tour and were returning home. On the way between Rochester, N. H., and this city the brilegroom had his pocket picked, and was thus left in a strange city without money or friends. The couple re mained at the station yesterday and this mom ing will telegraph to their friends in Lisbon for aid.

Daren of Calais, on Thursday afternoon when seven hours out from Boston fell in with a small boat containing three men and attempted to res cue them but the boat capsized and all were drowned. The captain can give no description of the men It is thought these meu belonged to the schooner Mary A. Xticc, which was towed in here Friday, having been found abandoned. Kailboad Accident.—A freight train over the Maine Central road, loaded with cattle and sheep, went off the track this side of Leeds Saturday afternoon and considerable damage resulted. About twenty head of cattle were killed while a number were injured. The num ber of sheep killed is not known. Superinten dent Tucker went down Saturday and bad not returned last nigbt. The Fbyebubg Kidnapping Case—Satur urday morning Judge Virgin sent in his decision in this case. The boy is given into the cus tody of his grandfather. This will set.le a case which has been a troublesome one for several months._ HerNonnl. J. B. Hall of the Worcester Gazette, and E. H. Knowllon, secretary of the Merchants’ Ex change of the same city, were in town yester day. ____ Maine Business Notes. The two canning factories of Castiue put up last year 50,000 cans of lobsters and 13,000cans of clams. The Lewiston Journal says bricks can now be bought at So-.'jO per thousand. Good season to build. The woolen mills at Hartland started run ning on full time last Monday, but with a re duction of wages; they cut dowD five per cent. The machinery in the Perkins & Emery ma chine shop on Gooch Island, which was recent ly sold at auction, was purchased by Andrews & Bragdon, Biadcford. They propose to occu py the shop for polishing granite and marble. This polishing of granite will be a new branch of industry there. It may not be generally known that granite is capable of taking on a high polish. We believe there is but one es tablishment now in the state where such work is done, and that is located at Augusta, Messrs. ,T. Dingley, Jr., George E. Strout and H. Foss have formed a copartnership under the firm name of Dingley, Strout & Co., for the purpose of manufacturing men’s opera and beaver boots, shoes, slippers, etc. They have purchased the machinery of D. Harwood & Co„ and propose to lease of J. H. Jioak, Esq., the factory formerly occupied by D. H. & Co., in Roak Block, Auburn. Mr. Dingley was for merly of the firm of Gay, Dingley & Co. Mr, Strout has for some time been connected with A. Cushman & Co.'s factory. Mr. Foss is thor oughly acquainted with the shoe and bool business as manufacturer. We are glad to sec addition rather than subtraction, so far as Au burn is concerned. STATE NEWS.

To All, particularly invalids, spring 13 a trying season. Indications of sickness should at once be at tended to. Fatal diseases may he caused by allow ing the bowels to become constipated, and the 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 sayiDg. Therefore, we advise all who are troubled with the complaints now very prevalent—headache, indigestion, disordered liver, want of appetite, nau sea. or feverish skin,to take, without delay, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills. We know of no remedy so harm less anu decisive in its action. It at once strikes at tlie 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 ot the 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 ot 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.

Bailey & Noyes, GENERAL AGENTS — FOR — Chickering & Sons’ PIANOFORTES Submit the foliowing facts to those who contemplate buying a PIANO, trusting that a more com plete knowledge of the superior advantages possessed by Ihe CHICKERING manufacturers will help to decide all purchasers who want the best. 1. The Chickering Pianos have been exhibited in competition with the planes of every well known maker in the world, and in every instance, without a single exception, have been awarded Honors and Prizes in advance of all Competitors. 2. Nearly Fifty Thousand Chickering Pianos have been manufactured and sold. Last year Chickering & Sons manufactured and sold rnoro Pianos by sev eral hundred than any other first-class piano maker in the United States. 3. Chickering & Sons’ Factory is the largest piano manufactory in the world. 4. All the Vital Points of Improvement in all Pianos now made in America were first introduced by Chickering & Sons, and subsequently copied or imitated by all other makers in the country, without exception. d, Pi very part or tne unickering nano is made in the Chickering Factory (except, of course, the hard ware used in the pianos, which is purchased by every maker), and the immense force of skilled artisans employed Is, and always has been under the personal supervision of Chickering & Sons. Chickering & Sons being the largest manufacturers in the world and having the first reputation, have not only been able to employ the best men in the various branches of manufacture, but they have been caused positive inconvenience at times by the number of applications for employment from the best workmen of other makers. 6. A piauo is usually a purchase of a lifetime, therefore great care should be used in selection— “The Best is the Cheapest.” Buy of a house whose representations can be believed and whose business to day, at the end ot fifty-three years of unexampled prosperity, is larger than that of any other maker and whose pianos are endorsed as The Best by the International Expositions of France and England, and by the unanimous testimony of the most noted Art Institutions and Artists of the World. Parties living in the State of Maine will find it for their interest to purchase of the Agents, BAILEY & NOYES, EXCHANGE STREET, oa PORTLAND. apr28 eodlm • i SPECIAL SALE. H. S.
