Th steam yacht Tourist went down yesterday t tow the Sparkle to this city. Julius Caesar* To see “Julias Ctesar” as given by the Jar rett and Palmer company at the Museum las i evening is an event in one’s dramatic experi ence not to be forgotten. The splendid an< stately tragedy received an interpretation a ■ the hands of those chiefly conctrned in pre ! seating it thoroughly satisfactory. The andi ence missed of course the magnificent stagi setting, the army of trained auxiliaries, thi rputence of color, the splendor of pageantry which marked the production of the play ii ' New York, and which made it the most bril Hint and imposing theatrical spectacle evei put on the American stage. The limitations o the Museum stage as to size and scenic ant mechanical effects put out of all question at attempt to repeat that dazzling pageant, and no oue expected to see it. It must be confess ed that the management as regards these mat ters were more prodigal in promise than per formance. Y’et the scenic display was fine and the more striking scenes were not unwor thily given. In several the effect was impres sive and the pictures conveyed noble present ments of the old city and civilization. Y’et hat the theatre been as bare as in Eiizabethat times the admirable acting would have com pelled the audience to forget any lack of scenic effect. The great artists who sustained the characters of the Roman leaders stood in no need of accompanying bravery or accessories of gorgeous color and perfected detail. The entire absence of these might perhaps have been a benefit as removing from the spectatoi any temptation to disregard the intellectual at tributes of the performance in admiration ol lavish scenic display and profusion of pagean try. A cast of more fitness and excellence could not have been constructed had the manage ment the whole large group of American play ers to choose from. The four leading actors gave nobly conceived and vividly and realis tically executed portraitures of those eminent Citizens of the last days of the Roman Com monwealth who fought and intrigued for its control. No quality of the tragedy was lost, everv reouirement was amnlv comnlied with. aud those lofty and daring spirits, the noble Romans whom the genius of tbe great dramat ist has presented as no other modern genius could, were fittingly and adequately personat ed, The distribution of the principal roles is so judicious, the three parts of Brutus, Cassius and Antony are so balanced in respect to prominence, that it is difficult for the spectator, especially if the play has been seen but once, to give exclusive palm to either of the three great actors who assume them. Each seems so fitted by natural bent of temperament and gifts of person for the character he enacts and appar ently so uufittel for the others that there ap pears to be little ground of comparison; and only a full and dotailed criticism, such as tbe hastiliy writing critic has neither time nor in clination to give, would furnish sufficient data to the reader to form a conclusion. Mr. Da venport’s “Brutus” was a noble and stately characterization, an entirely sufficient interpre tation of the lofty spirit who led the Ro man Patricians in their revolt against the Dictator, Mr. Bangs as “Antony” was striking and effective, and his elocution as be delivered the famous oration over the dead body of Ctc sar was fitted to produce the effect traditional ly ascribed to that moving and politic address. But Mr. Barrett’s “Cassius” produced the most marked impression on the house. He had the very front and semblance of the con spirator for liberty, and the impersonation was infused wilh the ardent yet subtle spirit, and weighted with the lofty dignity which we associate with the stern Roman, while in the closing scene it was nobly pathetic. While Mr. Levick did not perhaps fully con vey “Cmsar,” that consummate flower of Ro man manhood and culture, he gave a worthy and dignified rendition, and the few lines he had to read were delivered with force and feel ing. Tbe subordinate parts were, in tbe main, well distributed, and the large and brilliant au dience had reason to be delighted a’Jso noble a presentation of tbe noble tragedy. Portland in 1033. This centennial year makes appropriate all matters relating to the face of the country, ear liest openings for settlement and beginnings of English houses in Maine. 1623 tbe site of Portland was visited and its surroundings explored by Christopher Levett, one of the council of Governor Robert Gorges. It was early spring. He landed on the Isle of Shoals, spent a week with Thompson at Fis cataqua, coasted in two boats along shore to Portland harbor. Two rivers were found, one wherein tbe savages said “much salmon and other good fish then existed, when tbe fisher men fished for herrings and four sturgeon were taken that season, and on both sides of whioh “the ground is goodly”. The o’.her river he explored for about three mi'es and found a great fall of water, much bigger than the fall at London Bridge at low wa'or FnrJlihP a tin at. narninf. errt Vint. aVinvA the fall tbe river does cot rue smooth again, and just at this fall of water the Sagamoreon King had his house, and where two Sagamores move their wives and children, in all about 30, met Lovitt and his boat's crew, bid him wel come and gave him of their food to eat, and Lovett in return fed them with tobacco and strong drink. Tbe great Sagamore of the east Country is Samaaset of Pemaquid, known in English history as Samaset, whom the other savages regard as chief among them, gave a beaver coat to Levett in return for a salute fired on his departure. Here he found divers ships a fishing, hailing from Weymouth, England. The fishing he found good, much fowl and "the main as good ground as any can desire.” ‘'Cogatoesco” was the name of the ruling chieftain here. Coga wesco,Mema-wormet,(father of Mohotiworment of Sheepscot) and Samaaset or Somerset now spelled Samaset, all met him, and Coga weseo told him if he would set down at Casco “he should be very welcome, for Pemaquid, Cape BewageD and Monbegan were set tled then by others. The King of Casco, his Queen and their son, a Prince, with bows and arrows, dog and kettle, sailed from Boothbay to Casco, the King’s attendants in their canoes paping the boatmen. It was tbe Queen’s patrimony, and the Sagamore, being dead, aDd she an only child, held the inheritance. She drank toasts to the English captains and her husband then, bidding them all "welcome to her country.” Here Levett built bim a house and fortified it for his home stead. Levett’s dwelling and the Weymouth fishermen were tbe only English occupants in 1623 of Portland Eastward older establish ments existed, whether men for Levett’s ser vice had been sent for rendezvous before he himself arrived and in divers ships that had entered at Popham’s port of Pemaquid, es tablished prior to 1614, and Gorges and Sut cliffe plantation on Monhegan Island harbor 1616 in pursuance of Capt. John Smith’s ar rangement with Nahanada of Pemaquid. _S. Washington Bbay. Esq —Many of our readers will be much pained to learn of the somewhat sudden death of Mr. Bray, which occurred at his residence in Naples on Satur day One tyanlr lipfnrn his death he was taken down with acute bronchitis, which rapidly de veloped into pneumonia. Mr. Bray was horn in Turner in this state in 1814. He was selectman for Naples for twenty five years; for ten or fifteen years he was post master, and for many years he bad represented his town in the Legislature. He married Catherine, daughter of Mark Jordan, late of Casco, and niece of Hon. Samuel Jordan of Leering. He had accumulated a large property by habits of industry and economy. He was one of the most generous of men, and will be sadly missed by maDy to whom he had always extended the helping hand. His friends wer( not confined to the town in which he lived, but were scattered very numerously for miles around. His public services entitle him to the respect and esteem, of his whole county. Few men liavo filled the offices of husband and father more worthily than did he. Mr. Braj left a wife and one son, Dr. C. \V. Bray of this city. _ Beal Estate Transfers.—Tho following are the real estate transfers recorded in this county yesterday: Bridgton—Lot of land containing 30 acres from Charles A.

Special Meeting of the Board of Trade. — ; A special meeting of the Board of Trade was held yesterday afternoon to consider a reciproc ■ ity treaty with the Dominion of Canada. There i was a fair attendance, and President Wood i man presided. T. C. Hersey, Esq., stated the object of the meeting, and said that he had been requested by the President and officers of the Board to prepare a preamble and resolutions suitable for the Board to adopt, and he had accordingly pre pared the following: Whereas, This Board at an early day after the abrogation ol the old treaty of reciprocal trade with Canada, placed themselves on record, favoring the negotiation of a new one, and have since often re affirmed the same, and Whereas, The National Board of Trade at their meeting last year unanimously adopted a resolution to “memorialize Congress to pass an act authorizing the President ot the United States to ap poiat a commission of not less than five merchants and business men, familiar with the subject, to confer with a like commission on the part of the Dominion of Canada on the subject of a treaty for reciprocal trade and commercial rela tions, said commission to be authorized, on the part of their respective governments, to suggest and recommend the details of provisions for such treaty, subject to the concurrence of the respective govern ments of the United States, the Dominion of Canada and of Great Britain,” which resolution met the approval ot this Board, and Whereas, Mr. Ward of New York has introduced, from the Committee on Commerce in the National House of Representatives, a resolution in substan tial accord'with the recommendation of the National Board; therefore, Resolved, That in the opinion of this Board the best interests of the whole community would be pro moted by thanegotiation oi a broad, liberal and just treaty of reciprocal trade with the Dominion Govern ment, and that it fully approves of the adoption by Congress of the lesolution oliered by Mr. Wood in the United States House of Representatives for the appointment of a commission by the President of the United States, to confer with other commissions, to he appointed by, or in behalf of, the government of Great Britain, to ascertain on what basis a treaty can be negotiated for the mutual benefit ct the United States and the Dominion of Canada. After reading the above resolutions Mr. Hus sey spoke iu favor of them. He explained the probable cause of the failure of the last treaty by saying it covered too much ground. The old treaty he said, was better than none, but still it had several objectionable features. A reciprocal treaty will ouly be successful when both parties interested are content to let it re try to each overreach the other. Our consum ers as well as our manufacturers are interested in a liberal trade between here and Canada and it should not be restricted. Mr. Hersev was of the opinion that as the Board was unanimously in favor of reciprocity, lengthy temarks were not necessary. Messrs. W. S. Dana, M. N. Kicb, A. K. Shurtleff, Capt. Coyle and others followed Mr. Hersey, all of them speaking strongly in favor of the adoption of the resolutions. At the close of the remarks the following vote was unanimously passed: Voted, That the preamble and resolution be forwarded to our representatives in Congres* with a request that it receive their earnest at tention. Centennial Excursion.—The prospect of an excursion to Philadelphia, via Norwich and Providence, which was mentioned in the Press yesterday, is looked upon with favor. The of fer to the Portland people to go on this trip is prompted by the desire of gentlemen who par ticipated in the opening of the railroads be tween this city, Nashua and Worcester to con tinue and increase the friendly feeling started by the railroad opening. The Worcester com mittee have left a paper at Deering, Milliken & Co’s., E. N, Perry’s, the Preble House and Merchants’ Exchange. The steamer Empire City can be obtained to carry the party. This steamer is a side wheeler of 1700 tons burthen, built by the Old Colony Steamboat Co. express ly for their passeDger line between Fall River and New York, and has recently been refitted and refurnished throughout in the most thor ough manner, for the purpose of carrying pas sengers to and from Philadelphia, and furnish ing board and sleeping accommodations while there. This route and manner of visiting the Centennial is unsurpassed, and the tickets will be limited to the sleeping capacity of the berths and state-rooms, passengers retaining sole pos session of the same state-room from the begin ning to the end of the trip, and having the benefit of the spacious saloons of the boat, and an invigorating sea breeze. Families will find this a particularly desirable route, and it is in tended to furnish a comfortable home for all on board. Three meals per day will be furn ished on the route,and two meals per day while in Philadelphia. The owners of the boat are determined that this line shall be a popular one,and will use every effort to make the party comfortable. The plan proposed by the com mittee is to leave Worcester Monday morning, June 19tb, taking the steamer at Providence and reaching Philadelphia at noon on Tuesday. Returning, leave Philadelphia on Saturday. The fare for the entire trip from Portland to Philadelphia and return, including meals and berths, will be at the low price of $29 for each person. Children under twelve years of age half price. No liquors will ba sold on the steamer. n 11MT P r* /lnTrnor-r All V>n tr/> *nn<1 thn life of David Crockett will be anxious to see Frank Mayo, the celebrated actor, in the play of this name. The play is entirely different from most plays portraying frontier life, for there are no Indians in it. The Boston Adver tiser in speakiDg of the play! says: Mr. Mayo’s “Davy Crockett" really deserves both study and admiration. In it there is something of the highest artistic feeling—per haps of the highest artistic power. It is a good piece of acting in a hundred ways. It con stantly reaches that all-golden quality which no single word describes, but which comes from the actor’s seeming loss of self-consciousness. One could reasonably believe that the aotor was Davy Crockett, and not that he was play ing Davy Crockett. Juvenilk Exhibition.—This evening Mr. Baymond gives his juvenile party at City Hall. As this is the only entertainment announced for this evening the hall will no doubt be filled. The children of Mr. Baymond’s class will give an exhibition of their skill in the minuet sud all the fancy dances, as well as the square dances. Tha children will be very prettily dressed and the sight will he one worth wit nessing. At the close of the children’s danc ing there will be an opportunity for all present to participate in the entertainment. It will be a delightful entertainment. Commendable.—For their amusement and the regard they have for the welfare of the hos pital, several of the yonng ladies of the west ern part of the city gave a parlor entertain ment at the residence ot Dr. Fillebrown on Car roll street, on Thursday and Friday evenings of last week, for the benefit of the Marne General Hospital Elevator, Irom which was received the sum of §20.44. Maine Business Notes. J. Winslow Jones intends to can about 200, 000 cans of corn in Fairfield the coming sea son. His efficient agent, Mr. Merrill, is busily at work engaging corn for that purpose. The Kennebec Journal says that one million feet of logs started from Carribassett stream on Saturday morning, and are now lodged agaicst the piers of the bridge at Norridgewock, mak ing a big jam there. There has been snch a rise in in the Carribassett that the position looks threatening there, and men are strength ing the booms and bolding the logs with ropes. some seven milliou feet of log9—of last year’s and this year’s cot—that had not started out at last accounts. The Biddeford Chronicle says schooner Gem, brick laden, reported ashore at Cape Porpoise, and sold as she lay to Capt. Oakes of that place tor §325, was filled by him with oil bar rels in an endeavor to float her, but she has gone to pieces and become a total loss, together with the empty barrels. Her sails, rigging and spars were all that was recovered. A Boston paper says the honey comb and crochet quilts manufactured by the Bates mills, Lewiston, have been sold at auction by New York parties within a few days, as low as 75 cents, §1 and §1.25 for each grade. Auburn is to issue $33,000 in 6 per cent, cou pon bonds, interest payable semi-annually, to absorb the floating debt of the city. These bonds are to run as follows: $10,000 live years bonds; $10,000 ten years bonds, and $13,000 fif teen years bonds.

Fer nald of Orono, Burr of Hallowell, Bich ol Kent’s Hill, and Bounds of Farmington. Quite a large audience was assembled at short notice in the rooms of the Institute.
