Monday.—The civil case of Adams vs. Ricker, assigned for to-day, which hid fair to occupy from five to ten days, was settled by the parties before be ing opened to the jury. The jury was dismissed finally. Court adjourned until Friday morning at ten o’clock. Brief Jottings. Masonic Relief Association holds its meeting this evening. Some rascal stole Mr. Nate Allen’s sink spout a few nights ago. The street department have done a good job in grading up the corner of Commercial and India streets. The yacht Alarm is undergoing thorough re pairs in the dock west of Custom House wharf. The weather yesterday was fickle enough for April. There has been no movement made to divide the Portland Rowing Club. The tramps have everything their own way at the Cape now. No one dares to tarn them away empty handed for fear they will fire the buildings. Brick-iaying was commenced on Farrington Hock yesterday. Prayer meetings will be continued at the St. Lawrence street church every evening during this week. Mr. Libby of the Eastern Express, made a Visif. fn 11 if* WTillf>ir RnilEo flfitr liafnro ccoforflntr It was the first visit made to this house since the winter set in. Mr. Jonah Dyer, aged 81, a well known citi zen of Cape Elizabeth, fell from the havmow in his barn Saturday, and fractured his bip and shoulder. There was an interesting game of base ball Saturday afternoon at Morrill’s Corner between the Morrill’s Corner and Woodford’s Corner nine, and resulted in a score of 28 to 21 in favor of the Woodford’s Corner nine. Mr. William Burnham, janitor of the City Building, injured his back severely yeBterday morning while clearing up the room over the City Hall. Boswortli Post have a drill meeting this even ing, in preparation for Memorial day, which occurs on Tuesday the 30th iust., at which time decoration services will bo held by the G. A. K. as usual. There was a rumor yesterday that Mr. James Itobinson’s barn in Cape Elizabeth, was burn ed Sunday night. Davy Crockett. To say merely that Mr. Frank Mayo’s per sonation of “Davy Crockett” is a fine bit of acting, is doing him scant justice. It is a crea tion in dramatic art worthy to take its place by the side of Mr. Jefferson’s immortal “Kip” or the “Dundreary” of Southern. The play itself is a pleasing one, well constructed, lively in movement, full of incident, free from objec tionable sensation aud admirably adapted for a specially. It has been described as an idyl of the back woods, aud the description is an apt one. The backwoodsman is pictured with all his virtues, while his faults are, properly enough, put out of sight. Fortunately for the purposes of the play the real Davy Crockett came nearer to perfection than most men. A a personated by Mr. Mayo he is a hero of ro mance, intrepid, simple, modest, chivalric, with all the qualities of a hero and a martyr. But it is never forgotten for a moment that he is a backwcodsman, rude of manner and uncouth of speech. The charm of the impersonation is in its exquisite naturalness. The peculiarities of the hunter are never refined away. He makes love in the backwoods dialect. In his moments of intense pathos he is still the uncultivated man, expressing his grief in homely words. The audience last evening was not a large one, but it was certainly appreciative. In the very first act, which indeed in some respects was Mr. Mayo’s best, it caught the charm of the impersonation, and thenceforward was warmly demonstrative in its indications of ap proval. The second act, where “Davy” bars the door with his naked arm against the how ling pack of wolves, wrought the spectators up to the highest pitch of excitement, and they broke forth with long continued applause. Mr. Mayo was fortunate in having a good support, which added much to the pleasure of the audi ence. Miss Josephine Laurens was a very pretty “Eleanor”, and acted with intelligence and spirit, while Master Buckingham was a perfect “Bob,’ ’ giving a rendition of extraordin" The play will he repeated this and to-morrow evenings and at a Wednesday matinee. Those who fail to see it miss witnessing one of the finest actors on the American stage, in his fa vorite impersonation—an impersonation which justly ranks among the triumphs of dramatic art. The house should be packed during Mr. Mayo’s stay. Fuse Defahtment.—Tho bell on tbo Roch ester depot was arranged yesterday so as to strike the number of the box in case of a fire. This is a much needed improvement as the bell has been cf little use, merely announcing an alarm. The Chief Ecgineer has discovered the per son who struck the alarm at the depot Friday night, at the time of the fire at tha Cape. The experiment will not bo repeated. Real Estate in Deeking.-F. O. Bailey & Co. have sold the two story double house ou Grant street at Woodford’s Corner to C. F. Musans for $4000. The same firm have sold Ihree lots of land on Lincoln street, Deerlng to L. J. Perkins for 5J, and 4 cents per toot. The Adelfhians.—To-morrow evening the Adelphians give an entertainment at the Museum. This tr; upe is composed of a num ber of young men of much dramatic taleut and they give good entertainments. Music for the Fourth—The Haydns an now busily engaged in reheatsing patriots music for the Fourth of July celebration. Tin concert to he given by them promises to he oci of the most interesting parts of the celebration Odd Fellow*’ Anniversary at Saccarappa, Saccarappa Lodge No. 11, I. O. O, F., cele brated its 32d anniversary yesterday afternoon and evening. Several of the Grand officers With members of the order, accompanied by Cole’s Band of 22 pieces, went from this city on the afternoon train. On the arrival of the train the procession was formed for the parade. The procession, which was composed of the Saccarappa Lodge, Cumming’s Encampment No. 1G, and the members of the order from this city, was headed by the band and proceed ed over the route arranged. They passed through the principal streets of Saccarappa and Cumberland Mills, and then visited the cemetery for the purpose of decorating the graves of deceased members. A prayer was offered by the chaplain, Kev. A. W. Pottle, after which each Odd Fellow’s grave received a floral decoration, after which the baud played a dirge. At the close of the exercises at the cemetery the procession formed and marched back to Odd Fellows’ Hall, where they were dismissed. At'six o'clock a banquet dinner was served in the hall of the Presumpscot House. The dinner was a grand affair and about 300 plates were laid. The members of the Kebekah Lodge were present and assisted in enlivening the scene. After taking their seats at the table the company listened to mu sic by the band, after which Rev. Mr. Pottle invoked the divine blessing. Aftor the eatables had been thoroughly discussed interesting re marks were made by Past Qrand Master Cum mings, Grand Secretary Davis and Grand Rep resentative Rich of this city. In the evening the Central church was densely packed with people, who listened earn estly to a carefully prepared oration on Odd Fellowship by Kev. A. W. Pottle, a member ef the Saccarappa Lodge and a former resident of the village The shower in the afternoon slightly interfered with the parade, but the exercises all passed off very pleasantly and the whole village turned out to witness them.

Ex-Mayor Bass of Bangor exhibits a "photo graph burnisher” at the Centennial Exposi tion. It will be remembered that Mr. Bass failed to establish his right to a patent in the U. S.

Mrs. John Griffiths has presented to the Cumberland Bar Association a statue of Jona than Morgan, Esq., modeled by her late hus band. Commissioner Nye is in Augusta.

The convention comes off at Saco next Thursday at 11 o’clock. The Aet Exhibition.—Among the pictures now on exhibition at Schumacher’s, and to he sold Thursday, is one by Hewes of Boston, “Rocks at Cushing’s Island,” in which one of those beautiful fog effects so familiar to the frequenters of our coast is given. The sun is lowering through the thick mist which envel opes the distance in haze, and which by.con trast renders the foreground objects more than ordinarily prominent The rocks and water are carefully executed and the bit of pebbly beach on the left is a piece of realistic paint ing. In the same line collection Ordway has a view of Old Orchard Beach, cold in tone but truthfully and carefully handled, and giving the very feeling of a grey day by.the sea shore. Cryus F. Davis of this city, contributes a charming study of nature, a sunset view sketch ed in shadows and solidly painted, which, while strongly realistic, is full of sentiment. Harry Brown has in the collection two or three characteristic marines, soft and warm in color, bold and correct in drawing, and infused with the very feeling of the sea. Runaways.—’The horse of Joshua S. Clark ran away on Commercial street yesterday morning, and when opposite the store of James McGlinchy, collided with the team of Mr. Dyer, the shipping commissioner, smashing the latter carriage. Mr. Clark’s team was unin jured . Mr. N. B. Noble was thrown from his car riage on Atlantic street yesterday morning by the running away of his horse, and was some what bruised.

Another mouse similar to this one was killed recently in the horse car depot in Market Square. As there is a telegraph office in this room it is thought that the mouse in some way got same of the vitrol from the jars on its head, and it immediately eat tlie top off its head. A Card. The sum of §20.64 has been added to the fund for the founding of an elevator at the Maine General Hospital from the proceeds of the Y.

TL-e North Turner cheese factory started up Monday, the 22d. The shoe factor; of C. M. Daicy of Buck field, will start up Monday morning, May 29tli, employing the same amount of help as before. The steam saw mill in Brewer recently pur chased by T. N. Egery, Erq., has been leased to S. F. Barton & Co., and will start up in a short time. Mr. J. Winslow Jones of this city, publishes a long communication In the American Grocer of May 20tb, in which he sets forth the grounds of the validity of the Winslow corn patents. Business is brisk with the Granite Company at Bed Beach. They have orders far in ad vance of the present capacity of their works, and their polishing mill is runniog day and night. The Chronicle says the Auburn shoe factory connected with the jail is in a prosperous con dition ; 22 hands are now employed under charge of Mcses Abbott. They ate now making three cases a day. The goods are first class and are sold through the agency of Ara Cushman & Co. The Calais Times says as a result of the fish hatching operations at Grand Lake Stream 300,000 young salmon fry have lately deposited in the lake just above tho dam, by Mr. Atkins’ agent. This is 59,000 more than the 25 per cent, to which these waters are entitled, and to that extent more than carries out Mr. Atkins’ promises. The Kennebec Journal says that Mr. G. G. Stacy has sold bis shoe factory and real estate connected therewith to William Ling of Wor cester, who will engage in the shoe business with Mr. Band of Concord, N. H. These gen , tlemen have capital and experience, ami pro pose to start an extensive business. A Man Much Married.—A Sensation in Machias.—The Machias Republican says:—“A rather romantic affair came off in this town last Saturday. We think Machias never had a similarcase. Friday afternoon, May lltb,'a woman of rather prepossessing appearance came te town in the boat from Portland. She was directed to the Lawrence House as a proper place for a woman and her son, a boy about fourteen years of age, with her. Satur day morning she called for the Chief of Police, to whom she had a letter from the Chief of Police in Boston. Mr. John A. Capen, a con stable, was sent for, and he referred the woman to a Trial Justice, to whom she made knowu the fact that she was in search of a husband, to whom she was lawfully married in the city of Cork, Ireland, iu 18G0, and who had come to this country more thau ten years ago, proving unfaithful, as so many others have done before him. He married iu Lawrence, Mass., palming himself off as a single man. While living with this woman he removed to Machias, where she died. He subsequently married another woman in Lubeo, and one child was born to them, they living in this town. The name of the man who could so leave a wife and boy in Ireland, and come to this country thus to sport with the affections of other women, is John Treagy. a fancy painter and graiuer. Mrs. Treagy the first, after seeing various people, and telling th£m all about it in confidence, sent a message to her faithless spouse, that a lady wished to see him at the Lawrence House. He came at once, and was ushered into the presence of the woman he had deserted ten or twelve years ago. What tran spired between these parties in this interview has not been told. No interviewer was pres ent But Sunday afternoon is was rumored that Treagy had left for parts unknown. Mrs. Treagy called upon wife No, 3, and offered to take her child, but she refused to give it up. She left ou the boat last Monday morning for Boston, where she represents herself as being employed. Her son is a fine looking lad of some fourteen years. Whether her husband left to go with her, is not known. When she first came, her only idea seemed to bs to punish Treagy. We have an idea, however, that she did not stick to that, but induced her husband 10 abandon the third woman, and to go with her. Wherever he may have gone, he deserves punishment. He was a good work man, but inclined to oblivionsness, on account of strong driuk. We understand that wife No. 3 does not mourn very much, nor regret the somewhat rude severance of the bond of matrimony, as she bad seeu about enough to satisfy hpr that. Trparru mitrlif-. aa troll rrr\ aa not. Although tho parties came from Ireland, they had much more the appearance of Eng lish than Irish.” Kittery Navy Yard.—The Washington special of the Boston Journal says that the con tinuance of the New England navy yards was one of the subjects which came up for discus sion on Saturdey afternoon iu the House, when the naval appropriation bill was under consid eration. Mr. Hale gave notice of an amend ment, restoring the Kittery Navy Yard, which had been left out of the bill, and Mr. Burleigh soon afterwards gave some excellent reasons why this should be done. This brought up Mr. Randall, chairman of the Committee on Ap propriations, who reminded Mr. Burleigh that he had never heard a more complete condemna tion of the Kittery Navy Yard than from him. Running back through his Congressional histo ry and the remarks made by him iu reference to that yard, the committee found reason why that yard and the administration of everything connected with it should be suspended, (which is what is asked,) if not rooted out. Being aware of the condemnation pronounced hereto fore by Mr. Burleigh, the committee had cut it off from any appropriation. Mr. Burleigh admitted that he had condemn ed the Kittery yard, because there was fraud there, and asserted that at recent examinations the Committee on Naval Affairs had found fraud and corruption there which more than substantiated the statements which he had made, but frauds had also been found at the Philadelphia yard. He went on to briefly state that the Kittery yard is not surpassed bv anv navy yard in the country for its facilities for shipbuilding. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY The Journal says a sailing party offive gen tlemen, Friday alternoon started for a sail on Wilson pond. A stiff breeze was blowing and in making a tack their boat was capsized.
