MAY CIVIL AND CRIMINAL TERM, 1876, SVMONDS, J., PRESIDING. Friday.—In the case of Leonard A. Bickford and James E. Bickford, convicted at this term of the larceny of a beehive and contents, were each sen tenced to two years imprisonment end labor in the county jail. Thomas A. Pike, convicted of manslaughter two years ago, for causing the death of his w ife by throw « ing her violently upon a lounge while she was in an intoxicated condition, appeared belorc the court to day. His case during that time has been before the law court on exceptions which, however, were lately overruled. Meanwhile Pike has been out on bail. His counsel, Gen. Mattocks, moved that his sen tence be suspended until next September term, and called several witnesses to show that Pike has not only reformed in his manner of living, but that his reform is probably permanent. Rev. Mr. Bullfinch of Waldoboro, with whom Pike has lived lor fouiteen months, since the verdict against hiol, testified that he had been industiious, studious and temperate during that time; that he studied navigation with a brother of witness during the time, and having been to sea for a number of years, and second mate of an eleven hundred ton vessel before he came to Portland, he was now well rnialified for the position of master mariner. Pike has lately been first mate ot a vessel and only left to be present at court and save his bondsmen.— His countenance and manner indicate to those who saw him just previous to the trial that his habits of life have so far been totally changed for the better. In the afternoon there was a large number of fines and costs in liquor cases paid. Hugh Doherty was sentenced to three months im prisonment in jail on an indictment for being a com mon seller. Another indictment against him for nuisance, to which he pleaded guilty, was continued for sentence_ Jluaicipal Coart. BEFORE JUDGE KNIGHT. Friday.—Peter Wright. Search and seizure. Discharged.

Last evening two surgeons were busy setting his broken fingers, and it is thought he will be able to make bis second appearance Monday afternoon when the club try the Alerts again. They make a standing offer to play any clab in the state for the gate money. The Abt Sale.—Visitors were plentierthan purchasers at Schumacher’s art gallery last evening, and the sale of pictures was not so large as it should have been in view of the merit of the paintings. The prices were vary tow, and bargains were secured Dy nearly all who bid. The sale will be resumed this even ing, and will positively close then. This, the last oppoitunity to secure paintings at prices far below their value, ought not to be neglected l>y those who have a taste for good pictures. It ig -arely that such a chance is afforded. Real Estate Transfers.—The following are the real eb*'R® transfers recorded in this county yesterday: Cape Elizabeth—Lot buildings from Geo. H. Dow to Horace F. Davis.

Sullivan After the business of tbe meeting was finish, ed, the members of the association, with a por tion of the Portland Baud and representatives of the city papers, repaired to the Preble where “mine host” Gibson had in readiness one of those faultless repasts which have done so much to make the Preble one of the most popular hotels in Maine, Sapper despatched, the chairman of the committee, Mr. R. K. Gatley, called the gentlemen to order and after music by the band, proposed the first regular toast: The President of the United States.

A, Smith. Mr. John O. Rice, in connection with thesenliment, “The Army,” on being called upon, spoke of the Army and Navy Union.

Mr. Little responde d to the sentiment ‘‘Our absent comrades.” Tbe party separated at midnight after sing ing “Marching through Geotgia” and giving three cheers for the newly elected officers. The occasion was one of unalloyed pleasure aod will be long remembered. Merrimae Valley Dental Association. At the close of Tuesday evening’s session, af ter a spirited debate, a resolution presented by Dr. Thomas Fillebrown was unanimously adopted, to the effect that a full course of med ical study was necessery as a preliminary step to a thorough preparation in the study of den tistry. At tbe close of the session the association, by invitation of the Portland dentists, adjourned to the Falmouth where a rich collation was en joyed by all. At its close Dr. S. Bacon wel comed the visiting members, after which words of cheer and fraternal feeling were expressed by a large number. At the session yesterday morning the follow ing persons were elected members: Br. G. M. Twitohell, Fairfield; Dr. Isaac Goddard, Lew iston, and Dr. J. W. Curtis. Brunswick. Clinics were.read by Dr. G. A. Young of Con cord, N. H., Dr. L. S. Shepard of Boston, and Dr. Thomas Fillebrown of this city, introduc ing new improvements and new methods of operating. The essays and remarks have all been marked with a spirit of true enquiry after facts, and the results will be realized as individuals carry the suggestions into office practice. Tbe an nual session will be held in Boston in Novem ber. Abbival of Two Whales.—Burnum has at last been oatdone in the show business, for now an enterprising manager has sent to Labrador and securfed two fine young whales for exhibi tion. Some time since M. C. Coup, formerly the manager of P. T. Barnum’s great moral show, dispatched his agents to tbe coast of Labrador for the purpose of securing, if possi ble, one or more living whales for his new Crys tal Aquarium, now in process of construction on Broadway and 30th street. New York city. After long and patient labor,during which they suffered intensely from cold and ice, they were rewarded by the capture of two fine young whales. They were captured after an exciting chase and shipped to Quebec, where two im mense tanks were, constructed to receive them. From tbeie they were re-shipped by special cars over the Grand Trunk to this city, where they arrived last evening. They are evidently quite young, but are in fine condition. They are about twenty-five feet in length, and are considered tbe finest specimen ever seen on this coast. They will be shipped from here on ifou day by steamer to New York, so as to enable the agent to keep them well supplied with salt water. They can be seen in the Grand Trunk yard until they are shipped, and will doubtless be visited by huudr eds iu the next two days. Decoration Services Tomorrow.—Bos • worth Post will have Decoration Services at City Hall tomorrow afternoon, the Post attend ing in a body. Rev. Mr. Johnston will conduct the services, assisted by some of the other cler' g> of the city. The choral choir ol India street church, under the direction of Mr. Charles E. Hodgkins, will furnish the music. Mr. John ston will preach a sermon prepared for the oc casion. The exercises at Evergreen Cemetery on Sun day afternoon by the Army and Navy Union will be very appropriate. The ladies and chil dren will accompany the Union and wilt deco rate the graves. There will be a prayer by the Chaplain of the Union, poetical recitations by the children, and music by a select quartette. Fatal Accident.—Yesterday afternoon as two men were unloading a car of lumber at Jose’s lumber yard at the westiru end of the city, the lumber fell from the car upon Mr Geo. Ware, crushing him to the ground. The other man dodged behind a skid and narrowly escaped. Mr. Ware was at once extricated and Dr. Hutchinson called, hut be died just as the physician arrived. His death resulted from the rupture of a blood vessel. Coroner Gould was called, but did not deem an inquest necessary. The deceased was a man of steady habits and boarded at Mr. Dyer’s on Commer cial street. Portland & Machias Line.—On Tuesday next the steamer City of Lewiston will begin to make two trips a week to Machias. The City ot Richmond took a very large freight to Rockland last evening, which is to he transferred to the Charles Houghton at Rockland, to be shipped to Ellsworth and Deer Isle. The goods were purchased in this city by traders who have usually bought iu Boston. The facilities offered by putting the Houghton on the route from Rockland to Ellsworth has induced them to purchase in this city. Public Grounds.—The Committee on Pub lic Grounds, of which Alderman Taylor is chairman, have nearly completed the annual “slicking up,” which has been done more thor oughly than usual. The scraggy brush along the brow of the Western Promenade Las been removed giving it a very tidy appearauco. Mr. Itundlett is putting Lincoln Parkin excellent order, trimming the borders of the walks and renovating the walks themselves. StEBEOscopic View.—This evening the en terprising firm of C. D. B. Fisk & Co will give a public stereoscopic view in front of their store on Middle street. A large canvass will be arranged on the store opposite upon which the pictures will be sbowu. The pictures will he worth seeing, and there is no doubt but what the street will be throngod all the evening. Annual Challenge Cap Regalia. Tbe anuual cnalleuge cup regatta of tbe I’orU laud Vacht Club came off yesterday. Theie wero no formal entries for the race as all boats belonging to the club are supposed to compete. As it was, there were fourteen boatt that start ed, but only six of them went over tbeir several courses. The wind was blowing fresh all day from the South, and no better day could have been selected for tbe race. The judges decided not to start the race uutil 10.45 instead of 10 o’clock, the time settled upon. Long before the time for starting the end of Cnston House wharf and the club house piazza were crowded with spectators who were anxious to witness the start. At 10.30 the first gun was fired to bring the boats into line. Fifteen minutes later a gun from the club room told the yachts they could weigh anchor and proceed at once. This signal was speedily heeded and each and every boat in line got a fine start. The Viva, which was lying nearest tbe Cape side, took a good strong puff from the land and led tbe squadron around tbe breakwater, closely fol lowed by the Rambler, Undine, Mischief, Edda and tbe Mist. This position was not kept long for the second and third class yachts were obliged to part company as their courses lay in different directions. Tbe Casco lead the sec ond class as easily as the Viva led tbe Sparkle. Just before reaching Green Island the Sparkle gave up the race, leaving the Viva to go over tbe course alone. The Gracie wei t nearly over the course, but as tbe Casco was far ahead she did not make her last buoy, but returned to tbe starting point and her time was not taken. Tbe only contest of tbe whole race was between the twoscbooDers, Undine and Rambler,in tbe second class. Both boats got started together and sailed over tbe whole course, a distance of 18 miles, in company, until after getting inside the breakwater when the wind left the Rambler slightly and the Undine crossed the line a few moments in advance. The Mist lead the Edda in the third class boats and won the cup. The course for the first class boats was 31 miles, for the second class 18, and for the third class 12. Tbe judges were B. J. Willard, F. Willard and T. K. Jones. Tne following time table gives the figures: FIRST CLASS. W &5 a S' S. * a 2.

Tbe race was a very satisfac tory one t> all concerned. A fine view of tbe race conld be had from the new yacht Vif, which went nearly over the course with a large party of gentlemen.

It was removed to Rich’s undertaker room where it was identified as that of John Maley, a laborer on New Federal street. He has not beau at home for several days, but from appearances the body had been in rhe water but a short time. Coroner Hall was called but did not consider an inquest nec essary, as appearances went to show that he fell overboard whib intoxicated. Personal. Mr. Royal Cummings^editor of the Vermont Farmer, a weekly paper published at St. Johns bury. is in the city stopping at the City Hotel. Hon. Charles H. Haskell, Centennial Com missioner, has changed his quarters from the Grand Exposition to the Elm Avenue Hotel. His letters should be addressed to that hotel, adding “corner of Elm Avenue and 41st street." Departure of Jailbirds.—Warden Rice was in town yesterday and took six prisoners to bis home in Thomaston. It will be some time before their familiar faces will be recog nized on the streets. To-day F. O. Bailey & Co. are to sell at auction the whole of tbeir fine assortment of furniture. This lot was made by one of the best known manufacturers in New England, and is in good condition. Those in want of nice furniture should not fail to attend this sale, as the whole will be sold to the highest idder. A large number of peisons have in pected the stock the last few days. The Nutritive Tonic, prepared by Dr. Boring, is one of the best medicine* for the debilitated to be found in the market. It is the result of carefnl study and experiment, like all Dr. Boring’s preparations, and those who have used it are lavish iu its praise. Physicians also endorse it. Its sale has been unprecedented. Horatio Staples offers some very attractive bargains iu spring dress; goods. While out shopping to-day, drop into his store, No. 180 Middle street, and see the fins stock of goods he has to select from. Religious News aud Notes.

Dole of the Plymouth church of +1ai'o sti + n +V.« _ _ Jamaica PlaiD, Mass., last Sunday morniBg. The Episcopal Diocesan Convention of Cali fornia has just refused women the right ty vote for vestrymen, by a small majority. Last Sunday two persons were baptized and received into the Baptist church at Houlton, and four were taken into the Freewill Baptist church. The Yarmouth First Pariah Sunday school celebrated its fiftieth anniversary Sunday, May 14th. The bell of the church edifice has been recently re-cast and increased in size. The English revisers of the New Testament held their 59th session April 25. The revision was carried through the 221 verse of the 5th chapter of the Epistle to the Ephesians. Freedom, in this state, has no minister, no preaching, no Sunday school, but a large and constant Democratic majority. Just now there is hope because of two well attended prayer meetings. The Lewiston Young Men’s Christian Asso ciation at its annual meeting reported that the receipts of last y--ar weie 81,697.10, and ex penditures, including 3775 for City Missionary, 31,669.35.

Messrs. Moody and Sankey will go to Chicago early in June, where they will open the new church which has been built for Mr. Moody. It is stated, authoritatively, that all of Mr. Moody’s sermons are caretu'ly prepared and written out bsfore delivery. The leading ministers of the Unitarian Con ference recently held at Philadelphia, advocate the opening of the exhibition Sundays. If it is the purpose of religions people to keep thou sands out of the beer gardens about the gates, they cannot do otherwise than advocate that policy. The Gospel Banner cannot have many doubt ers among its readers respecting the safety of tbe cardinal doctrine which the name Uuiver salist implies, judgiog from the frequency with which they call upon the able editor to explain the “new birth.” The latest request for light comes from Limerick, where the Y. M. C. A. have teen holding revival meetings. The Kennebec Valley Camp-meeting will begin on the beautiful grounds of the Associa tion at Richmond, on Monday, the 7th day of August, continuing one week.-The State Camp-meeting will be held on the camp grounds at Richmond, beginning on Monday, the 14th day of August.-The l’oland Camp meeting, in charge of Rev.

Thursday evening week, after the regular meeting in the church, seventy-five converts and inquirers met in the vestry for prayer and conversation, with the brother and pa-tors who are so deeply interested in the work. Meetings are held day and evening, and are largely attended. Cincinnati has arranged for a religious Cen tennial celebration during Whitsunday week, beginning on Sunday, the 4th of Jane.

Tho Christian Register (Unitariau) says that while the Western churches have multiplied five-fold and the Eastern churches are not much more numerous than they were twenty years ago, Eastern churches now contribute three times as much as they did when the Western Conference began, and the Western churches are still quite near their original amount. Several Eas'ern churches have just given more to missionary objects than all the seventy-three Western churches pnt together expect to give. One of the most remarkable of our Ameri can Sunday Schools is that of the church of the Disciples (the Rev. JameSiFreeman Clarke’s), Boston, which numbers aiome eight hundred pupils in its various classes, chief of which ranks the pastor's Bible class of about two hun dred. There ate forty-eight classes. The lib rary contains iwo thousand volumes. The one lesson system—The Life and Teachings of Je sus—has been the plan pursued by most of the classes. The Rev. Dr. Robinson, President of B own University, recently supplied the pulpit of the First Unitarian church of Providence in the ab sence of the pastor, and his sermon was regard ed as a remarkablo one as coming from a lead ing Baptist divine. Ho maiDtiined that relig“! ion, like the physical world, had its epochs amt revolutions, and that the present movement, although bloodless, is deeper and more signifi cant than any preceding oue. He was not afraid of progress, bat is convinced that the Christian religion is more firmly established than ever in the world. A congressional inquiry respecting tho army chaplains sets them in no very enviable light. Col. Palmer of the 2d cavalry, who has served since 184G, calls them “the greatest incubus on the army,” and says: “A more useless and worthless set of drones and idlers were never fastened upon aDy body of men. The men who have been appointed to these positions are generally characterless men, who are no exam ple to either the officers or men, and they bring the Christian religion into contempt wherever they go. Gen. Ord, whose service dates from 1839, says that not more than one in ten is use ful. Capt. Guy N. Henry, 2d cavalry, says thi-ir presence is demoralizing. W. H. H. Murray wants conceits gathered into the churches without doctrinal confessions of any sort; because, says he “whoever has re pented of sin and has faith toward Christ is al ready a member of the church of the Most High, in good and regular standing. And all earthly and local churches must receive him or her as such,” He urges this not as anything new, but as particularly needed in New Eng land, where “a custom has come into vogue of ‘examining’ Christians who desire to make public confession of their faith, in an inquisi torial way and to an extent obnoxious to Scrip tim* and also to Ohrist.ian nnnrtoQv anrl nhari.* ty.” Edward Eggleston objects in the Sunday School Times to the prevalent international system of lessons. “Progressive Sunday School men,” bo says, “even now chafe under a des potic monotony.” The committee which pre pares the lessons “acts upon the theory that a Sunday School is a sort of primary theological institution; that the test of success is the quan tity of information about Boaz or Josiah that the scholar is able to retaio.” He expects thunderbolts” on his bead for sayiug it, but be insists upon it “that, 1, the international sys tem is not in any sense sacredly identified with Christian piety; it is a system under which big oted school ■ are sure to get their Bible lessons carefully filtered through denominational fil ters. 2, That notwithstanding the publishing interest involved, and a sort of Fourth of July sentiment about Christian union, it must soon er or later give way. 3, That, beyoud its use io diffusing widely established methods, the advaotages claimed for it are of uo practical account. It is of do real benefit ta Melbourne iu Australia, to know that Binghamptou in New York studies the same bard passage in the book of Samuel on tbe same day. Maine Business Notes. The Fianklin Land and Lumber Company, whose headquarters are in Boston, tbe cor poration that has based the saw mill at tbe east end of the Kennebec dam in Augusta, has just met with a sad mishap iu tbe loss of one of their valuable dams on Carrabasset stream. The consequence is that the company will be unable this season to get all their logs down to the mills. Appearances now indicate that out of nine millions of feot, they will be lucky if they get out one million feet. It is their inten tion, however, to furnish plenty of business for their mill, even if they have to buy logs of other millmen. They have recently laid out about 81500 on repairs on their leased mill in Augusta. , The new steam mill being erected on the east side of the river in Augusta, on the site of tbe one burned last October, is rapidly approaching completion. It is expected that the mill will be completed and ready for business about the last of June, when it will give employment to a crew of thirty-five men—about tbe force it took to run tbe former mill. The structure, fitted with machinery, etc., ready for operations, will cost about 825,000. Tbe company running it will engage in.tbe manufacture of long aud short lumber. STATE NEWS.
