After next week the steamer Lewiston will make two trips per week. Police Notes —Officers Bell and Harris broke np a row in the rear of York street last evening which promised to make a first class item. It seems that a blind man bad been drinking to the health of his sister who had jnst left for New Hampshire, and becoming noisy bis wile reasoned with bim, using an iron stew pan as an argument. The reasoning bad the effect to quiet the man for he was cut badly about the head and bled profusely from his wounds when the officers arrived. The injured man was taken to the station, hut the wife was kept in the house as she bad several small children. A rum crazed man drew a knife on a woman on Congress street last evening, when a passer by interfered and called officer Hicks who took him to the station. A large knife was found on his person.

The executive committee to whom are entrusted the details of the ar rangements are already busy at work, and will make their report in a day or two. The camp fire at City Hall the previous evening will be a monstrous affair. The main ball will be devoted to the citizens while the galleries wil1 be thrown open to the public. A movement is on foot among our veterans to get up the colla tion for the camp fire. This would be a very proper thing to do, and would reflect great credit upon the city to thus acknowledge the visit of the soldiers and sailors of the State. The whole company will leave for the Island at an early hour Thursday morning and on arriving will at once take breakfast, after which the several regimental organizations will meet for the transaction of business. After this there will he sports of all kinds, to ba fol - lowed later in the day with a huge clambake. The party will return to the city in season to take the evening trains to their homes.

Portland Schools as Philadelphia The exhibit made by tbe schools of this city a the Philadelphia Exhibition have arrived there are in position and command general praise Our teachers aDd scholars certainly deserve credit and warm praise for their zeal, knowl edge and efficiency.

Fire in the Wood*. i Yesterday afternoon a huge column of smoke rising from Westbrook woods suggested to our vigilant reporter that, if there be any truth in proverbs, there must bo some fire in the leaf less coverts. So, himself fired by the thought of distancing the reptile contemporary, he sallied forth, cherishiug some hope that all Westbrook might be aflame. The night was pleasant aud the nag a good one, and as ho journeyed along he painted glowing pictures of the victory he should achieve over the other man, and began making appropriate bead lines in which reference was had to the devouring element and all that sort of thing. It wasd easier, however, to invent captions than it was to find the item to suit them The fire fiend appeared to be a sneaking sort of a fellow and it was only after a long chase that he was found snugly hid in the woods near Allen’s Corner, where he had been amusing himself by capering to and lro over a hundred acres and had taken the edge off bis appetite by a lunch of four hundred cords of wood—which he doubtless found a knotty matter for digestion. The reporter sadly made inquiries, for the shameless fellow was disappointed at not find ing at least one house in ashes, and learned that Isaac Kuigbt, who lives near Allen’s Cor ner in Westbrook, set fire to a heap of brush on his farm yesterday afternoon, that the fire extended to the woods beyond aud could not for some hours be checked. It ran over about a hundred acres, ruining the growth and burn ing up four hundred cords of cut wood before it could be stayed. The wood was owned by James Lucas. For a time there was much ex citement in the vicinity, and,the people turned out en masse to fight the flames. Considerable apprehension was felt of further danger, and it was only by a hard struggle that the fire was kept from buildings near by, and at last checked. The loss to Mr. Lucas canaot be less than a thousand dollars. Barnburners at the Cape. The fire at Cape Elizabeth Friday morn ing was succeeded by another this morning precisely similar. This time it was the barn of William S. Emery, situated on the Cottage road between the brick school house at the southerly end of the bridge aud the meeting house at the top of the hill. Mr. Emery dis covered the fire about half past 12 o’clock, when it was too late to eave any of the contents, which consisted of a yoke of oxea, horse, two Jersey heifers, twenty-five heus, seventeen tons of hay, muwing machine and farming utensils, all of which were destroyed. No one, lkf. L1_ __1_1_1 1__. 1. . - • — J —.VV/V. UV.UI »UU barn with a light, and there is no doubt but tbe fire was purposely set. Following so quick ly on the fire at Ferry Village it leads to the belief that a gang of barnburners are prowling about the Cape and residents should take some precautioas to prevent the destruction of their property. Mr. Emery’s loss is §1500 at the least; on which there is no insurance. The fire was plainly seen in this city and tbe alarm from box 43 struck. An engine and the Eagle books went over, but the barn was in ruins when they arrived. Gobham —Kev. Mr. Whittier, the evangelist, has been laboring with the people of this vil lage for several days past and now both church es are having a revival of religion.

Nevin, 5 to congratulate him in person upon the open ing of this house of worship for the people of 8 the New World, and welcomed it as a decided 1 evidence of the religious liberty which his n family have soueht to cive to the nation so lone oppressed by spiritual despotism.
