Second Pakish Sunday School,—The 59th anniversary of this organization was observed last evening, tbe cburch being full. The church was appropriately decorated for the o icasion. On fhe platform back of the pulpit there were two arches of evergreen, upon which there were respectively the dates 1817 and 1876. These arches were surmounted by another arch upon which was inscribed the words “Praise ye the Lord.” Beneath them all and arou nd the pulpit there was a profusion of flowers and evergreens. The exercises commenced with an anthem of praise by the choir, followed by the reading of the 96th Psalm by the Superinten dent, Mr. Daniel Green. Alter a hymn by the school, Rev. Dr. Carruthers, tbe pastor, led in prayer.

Impressive Services niCily Hall uud< (he Auspices of Bosworlh Post—Scrmo by Rev. Hr. Johnston of Pine Strei H. E. Church—Decoration of Soldicri Graves by Army nnd NavyiEnion—Intel esting Services at Evergreen Cemctet by that Association, etc., etc. City Hall vras well filled Sunday afternoo by a very interested audience, called out by tl announcement of the usual religious exercisi on the Sunday before Memorial Day, wbic have been observed under the direction of Boi worth Post, Grand Army of the Republic, ft several years. The audience was much large than at any previous occasion of like charade and the services throughout were unusually in pressive. The members of the Post iu uniforr came into the hall in a body, the ranks bcln unusually full. Tho Post occupied the fron seats. The platform was occupied by large choir, the uucleus of which was theeboi of Rev. Mr. Bicknell’s church, under the skill ful direction of Mr.C.E.Hodgkins. ThePortlan Band furnished excellent instrumental music Mr. John Yeaton, Jr., chairman of tho com mittee ou arrangements, presided. The exercises began by the singing of word entitled “Angel of Peace” set to the music c Keller’s American Hymn. Rev. Mr. Johnsto of the Pine street M. E. church, offered a fei vent prayer, after which the choir gave “Rod of Ages.” Rev. Mr. Johnston followed witl an appropriate discourse, taking his text fron Joshua 4,21—“What mean these stones?' Briefly alluding to the occasion when this ques tion was asked relative to the twelve stone which the children of Israel took out of thi Jordan to be a memorial,the speaker proceeds to say that all times and peoples had employei memorial stones or instituted ceremonies o observances to recall great events or signa epochs iu their history. God had made use o memorials. He had set bis rainbow in tb heaven as a memorial to men of all ages of bi loving kidness and mercy. The Jews unde Moses and other great leaders set up many memorials. The sacrament which was cele brated by the entire Christian church of what ever name, was a memorial of God’s love am mercy, and as such was recognized by the civ ilized world, binding man to man, church t church. It is fitting, then, on this occasioi that as a people we assemble on Memorial Da; to pay the debt of gratitude to the men t whose devotion, sacrifice and blood, we enjoy the blessings of government and the glory o a fatherland. To forget these men would be the basest of ingratitude, to pay them a tribute is, indeed, a privilege. The speaker bad a per sonal interest. The brother, the pride of tbi family, poured out his life for the Union on the historic bills of Gettysburg. He proceeded to remark that no war in mod ern times had excited so general interns throughout the world as that whose first guc was fared April 14th, 1861. There had beer warp|as bloody,wars in which as much property was destroyed, but in world-wide interest and its general effect upon the destiny of humanity none were comparable to it. Wars generally had their origin in the jealousy and ambition of kings. In the war for the Union, a great question affecting the welfare of the commor people and bringing into a single issue the ability of man lor self government and of a race to freedom. The speaker then passed on to note lh< growth of the country prior to the war, the deep interest the nations of Europe had in iti development and the ordeal through which ii was called to pass to rid itself of slavery. It was not only a war for great principles and to establish great truths, but it was one full o self-sacrifice, of noble examples, of personal braveries. The page of history from the ear best time can never find brighter illustrations of real greatness than the war for the Union The world cherishes deeds of valor and heroic devotion. Nations fall,races become extinct,bul thestories of Leonidas and the Spartan mother survive. He then gave several illustrations of heroism, and among them related the circnm stances of a mother in this vicinity who gave her minor son permission to enlist, in a letter to the recuiting officer, in which was the follow ing words: “He is my boy, he is my all, but as he desires to fight for his country, 1 lay him upon the altar of my country.” To the men who left all and went forth to die, he paid a high tribute. He eloquently portrayed theii sufferings and the terrible martyrdom thou sands endured, and exclaimed “Perish the peo ple and country which would forget such noble dead!1’ They fell under the terrible wrath of battle, in that fierce heat which no man can stand, from death-wounds on fields where no hand could seotb, on languishing hospital couches, under the silent stars whom none but God saw. The patriot dead and comrades ol that greatest and best of men—Abraham Lin coln—whose “life is crystalized among the im mortalities.” Turning to the members of Bosworth Post he remarked: You do well, gentlemen, to cause these men to be remembered; you have a noble duty to do. Men may forget the nation’s dead, but you who saw them die, who wore of them, can never forget. You do more than flaunt a flag over their graves; you care for their fath ers, mothers, widows, and orphans. To you belongs the duty of making the busy world re member the dead and care for their living ones. It is to your credit that in the past few years you have collected and expended more than $7000 in charities. It is a monument of your devotion to the great cause and of your love for the men who died or were maimed that your charities extend to all. Go on iD your noule mission. In conclusion, the speaker blessed God that to-day is a day of peace—that the sound of war is no more heard in the land. He prayed that thare would be no more wars—that past differ enCflS hft and all nannlps shnnlrl shout: “Glory to God in the Highest, peace on earth and good will to men.” At the conclusion of the discourse the»choir rendered “Spirit Rest,” Mrs. Kate Knight of Falmouth singing the solo with much effect. Mr. Johnston then pronounced the benediction and the services, which were exceedingly im pressive and appropriate, were closed. DECORATIONS BY THE ARMY AND NAVY UNION. The Army and Navy Union Association dec orated the graves of their deceased members yesterday. In the morning detachments were sent to Eastern,Forest City and Calvary Ceme teries, and the usual number of graves in each cemetery received a floral tribute. In the afternoon the members of the Union with their ladies and children, visited Ever green Cemetery and held very appropriate dec oration services on Memorial Lot. The chap lain, Mr. Hatch, offered prayers, after which a quartette composed of Messrs. Shaw. Fernald, Stetson and Tukey, sang “Rest, Soldiers Rest.” Col. A. W. Bradbury then delivered a short oration upon the duties of the soldiers who sur vive their comrades of the late conflict. His remarks were very appropriate and were close ly listened to by the large crowd which gather ed about the lot. Miss Perry then sang a solo “The Faded Coat of Blue.” Several of the children gave recitations appropriate to the oc casion. The quartette sang “An Offering of Flowers to Thee We Bring,” after which the children proceeded to decorate the graves, singing a short piece as each bouquet was de posited. The whole exercises were very impres sive, and the members of the Union returned to the city with a consciousness of having done all they could to honor the memory of their fallen comrades. The Union will turn out in uniform with Bos worth Post ou Decoration Day. Arrival oe the Ossipee.—Tho United States steamer Ossipee arrived in this harbor Saturday noon from Port Royal.

One of them the station agent adjudged intoxicated, and so he put him out of the room In the process of ejectment the mau fell and inflicted a slight wound on his head. This raised the ire of his ffriend, who threatened t( whip tlie officials of the whole road,jwhereupor he too was assisted in leaving.

The importance of a large attendance of company of wide awake Republicans from th state of Maine was fully considered at th “ meeting of the Blaine Club at Augusta on Fri '* day of last week. There was earnest expres ’ sion of sentiment from every county that tber •- should be a large representation, and immediat y efforts should be made to bring about such i result. The members of the general commit tee from each county pledged a number fron his own county, to which in the aggregati 11 would make the number reach 250. We full; e endorse the importance of this movement, am 8 trust that Cumberland county will do its duty 3 Many have already expressed their intention o ' joining the company. Should the number sim ply reach two hundred, which appears to hi r already assured. Tte company will have thi r advantage of a special train from New Yotl city, which in a reasonable manner will ii 3 point of running and stopping be under the di ? rection of the company. We are informed thai ' the executive committee who have the mattei 1 in charge desire to receive information at ai r early day from such as intend to join the com pany, so that arrangements can be made to se cure rooms which are already conditionally en gaged.

Osgood of Augusta, who will 3 answer any inquiries. ) - The Whales.—Our announcement of thi : arrival of two whales in this city created quit! i a curiosity to see these rare specimens of thi i finny tribe. Early Saturday morning a largi crowd flocked to the Grand Trunk yard, and ai one time the number of children was so greai i that the yard master scarcely dared to run ! trains for fear of causing iujury to some oi 1 them. At last a remedy was devised. A pla [ card reading “Admission to the whales $2,” r was posted, and aftsr that they were not troub [ led much. Yesterday a large -number of the : curious obtained admission through the polite, j ness of Messrs. Harper and Coup. They are j worth seeing, but those who have them ir charge are anxious to keep them as quiet at possible. Mr. Coup, who went to Labrador fot them, gives a very vivid account of his adven • tures. Ho went to Quebec on tte 2Gth of last . Marcb, and from there went to Murray Bay ot Malhaie, a small fishing village about two hun i dred miles to the north. At Malhaie he char i tered a schooner of twenty-five tons, and pro r cured a French captain and a crew of thirty i five men. It took two weeks to reach the coast of Labrador in the schooner. After arriving ; they proceeded as follows in tbei capture: Stakes, or pins, as the fishermen call them— are driven into the water in a semi-circle, some distance from the coast, thus forming a sort oi ) uuj. xuu juuu, n uuilc wuib viucu iu lucouua, in pursuit of minndws, which form tlieir food, and the fishermen wade into the water after them, while others approach in the opposite di i rection in the boats. The stakes, which are placed at intervals of a foot apart from each other, prevent the escape of the whales, and they are lifted into the boats by the fishermen, immediately taken ashore and placed in tanks. Bat it is not every day that whales swim into these enclosures, and for throe weeks the party waited in vain. Finally two fine ones, a male and a female, were secured, placed in tanks made of wood, put on board the schooner, and sail was made for Quebec, The whales will leave for New York tonight. Personal, Rev. N. E. Boyd occupied the pulpit at Park street church yesterday morning. Mr. A. B. Winslow, who was thought to be out of danger, is very low,the rheumatism hav ing attacked the heart. Lieut, Webster, of the Ossipee, is a son of Capt. Webster, who will be remembered as a very efficient revenue officer. Capt. James ltackleff of this city is 97 years old, and is in perfect health, retaining his fac ulties to a remarkable degree. His hearing aDd eyesight and memory don’t seem to be im paired in the least. He walss on an average two miles a day, and bids fair to live many years. Mr. J. F. Phillips, Superintendent of the Lowell branch of the Boston & Maine railroad, is at the Preble. Building Notes.—W. H. Anderson, Esq.,'is to erect two brick blocks of two houses each on Deering street. Mr. Charles Merrill is to build a two story brick house on Cumberland street near Avon street this season.

Cummings has just completed the foundation for a two story brick house on New bury, near Franklin street. Mr. Howard Soule, of the firm of Hodgdou & Soule, has purchased a lot of land on Pine street, at the head of Carleton, and is to build a residence thereon this season.

Stevens. i-'cci1 ijh—u i u tr uuuiuiu a vuiucr from Theodore H. Mansfield to Charles F. Mu sans. Keform Club.—The club held a large meet ing last evening in Arcana Hall. Interesting remarks were made by tbe president, Mgssrs. Bigby, Perry, Merry, Sylvester, Smith, Facy and Booker. The lady friends of the club will hold a sociable for the benefit of the club at the Y. M. C. A Hall, Thursday evening, June 1st. The Fourth.—Hon. George F. Talbot has consented to deliver the oration at City Hall on the Fourth. The committee have made ar rangements for half fares on all railroads and steamboats except the Boston & Maine road. The full programme will be announced in a day or two. Frans E. Harris, whose place of business is at No. C Hampshire street, is manufacturing Centennial Ice Cream of the very best quality. He will send a team out this eveuing if the weather is pleasant. The herring is now used as a food fish to a considerable extent, both smoked and pickled, but the menhaden very little, solely on account of its great abundance of fine bones, so numer ous as to give it a common name in some sec tions, “Bony Fish". Both belong to the same family, (tbe clupeidae), which includes also the shad, alewive, sardine, anchovy and others. The juices of all of them are remarkable for abundance and richness of flavor. In view of this fact Mr. Gooiale inclines to believe th at the true function of the minbaden in the econ omy of nature is now first recognized. How ever this may be, it is safe to say that the amount of raw material at command for mak ing his extract is practically without-liraits, and the yield of oil and scrap (the only products before sought,) is not at all affected by the utilization of the juices, these having uuiform formly been allowed to flow back into the ocean. His plan, therefore, puts to use what has been entirely wasted hitherto, and promi ses to turnish a valuable and extensive addi tion to the food supply of the world. [to nionnf intnro o 1 frhran rmotlrr nnmnoi.n.1 with articles possessing only ordinary nutritive power, will bo cheaper than that of beef, whatever that may b9, since the oil and scrap pay for taking the fish. When Baron Liebig first announced his discovery of beef extract and its remarkable properties, nobody anticipated beyond a very limited use of it. He, himself, ventured, ow ing to its great cost only to recommend it to the government, to bo made in sufficient quan tities to supply to wounded soldiers on the field of battle, weakened with the loss of blood, to enable their safe removal to the nearest hos pital, but its extraordinary merits gradually won for it a much wlderemployment notwith standing the great expeuse attending it. So that when its manufacture, about 1801, was undertaken in South America and other coun tries where beef was plenty and cheap, the de mand increased rapidly and at the present time hundreds of thousands of cattle are an nually slaughtered for this purpose, and the extraet is sold in all parts of the world. The new extract from the juices of fish as yet has only been made in an experimental way, but we understand that preparations are in pro gress for larger operations during the present year. Business Changes.—The following business changes are reported as recently taking place in Maine: Farmington—G. W. Hanger, Gen. store, sold to N. Farmington Grange. Gardiner—Mrs. S. Id. Heath & Co., dry and fancy goods, dis. l*ortlaud—A. Little & Co., w. dry goods,dis.; W. E. Chase retires; admit E. D. Eastman. Waterville—T. E. Hausted & Co., hardware, dis.; now E. G. Coffin. A New Source of Food. i _ s , Mr. Gooilnle’* Food Extract—Sncccasfu Experiments with (he Juices of “Bon: Fish’*—A Material as Valuable as ih< ) Extract of Beef, etc., etc. 1 The readers of the Press will recollect thai our Philadelphia correspoudeut noticed in a re cent letter as one of Maine’s contributions t< the Exhibition Mr. Goodale’s “Food Extract’ as being shown in a modest way. A few day since a representative of the Press while it Saco, Mr. Goodale’s residence, was enabled b; the courtesy of that gentleman to obtain sonn interesting facts relative to the Food Extract which is wholly a new product and gives prom ise of developing into large fruitfulness. It appears that last year Mr. Goodale con ceived the idea of utilizing the juices of thi herring and menhaden (commonly called por gies) for the production of a food extract simi lar to that made from beef, and carried tbi idea into execution. The method of operatioi is to dtess the fish in as cleanly a manner a. for tho table and as soon as possible after bein; taken. The juices are then skillfully separat ed with pressure and evaporated until the nearly all the water is expelled. In this stati the extract contains neither flesh, bone, skin o: fat, but possesses the active virtues of nearl; fifty times its weight of the fish as taken. I: dissolves readily in hot water and with sal added and other seasoning if desired, forms I rich and palatable broth or toa hardly distin guishable from that made from beef. Indeei we could not distinguish any diforence be tween the broth made from the fish extrac and the tea made from the beef extract, ami such is tho experience of nearly every one wh< has tasted it. Besides the popularly recogn’zed exoellen cies of fish as Prain food it possesses in a high ly concentrated form (like extract of beef, which is nothiog mora or less than the juice: of the lean meat of the ox with its water ab stracted) remarkably supporting, stimulating and restorative properties, and may be usee with great acceptance alike by the sick ane the well, the invalid and the convalescent, fur nishing to the system nervous and musculai power, and without -need of [prior digestion, because it is itself the substance which nature has prepared in its own wonderful organic lab oratory of a living being, for the very purpose of supplying force or energy in tho animal or ganism. The juices of the muscles constitute the reservoir of force, and by skillful means they can bo separated, preserved and transfer, red to other animal organisms, and give out it them the same power. n..n!_TAT „ i_ auuauv .«-»»»u * xj,s_ okX XIUIIVO* S. C. Watkins of Webbs Mills has taken £ contract to furnish a Western firm with on< hundred fine departure sleighs, to be delivered b.v the first of November next.

The Sunrise says that on Sunday last at Wade Plantation, a young man and two youDg girls attempted to cross the Aroostook river in a log canoe, which overset and threw all three into the water. One of tho girls caught the bow of the canoe and saved herself from sinking. The other girl sunk to the bottom twice, but was finally caught by the arm by the young man, and together they got hold of the boat, which was bottom up. They floated down the river two miles when they were rescued by a man, who with another boat, went to their assist ance. The Sunrise says Sam'l McLaughlin was brought to Sherman from Sandy Stream, last week, sick with typhoid pneumonia. The first 18 miles of the route lay through an unbroken wilderness. Four men took him upon a rude slid that distance by hand. When they reach ed the Wassatjquoik, they built a raft to take him across. The trip occupied two days, and they were obliged to camp in the woods. Ar riving at the East Branch place, Mr. Hersey took the sick man upon a sled ami brought him to Mr. Boyington’s, where he remains iu a very critical situation. CUMBERLAND COUNTY.

The Chickering Pianos have been exhibited in competition with the pianes of every well known maker in the world, and in every instance, without a single exception, have been awarded Honors and Prises in advance of all Competitors. 2. Nearly Fifty Thousand Chickering Pianos have been manufactured and sold. Last year Chickering & Sons manufactured and sold more Pianos by sev eral hundrod 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 Piannu unw uiailft in Amerigo, vara firat <nfwAdn/.A,i by Chickering & Sons, and subsequently copied or imitated by all other makers in the country, without exception. 5, Every part of tho Chickering Piano 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 tinder tho 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 tho best workmen of other makers. 6. A piano 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-threo years of unexampled prosperity, is larger than that of any other maker and whoso pianos are endorsed as The Best by the International Expositions of France and England, and by tho unanimous testimony of the most noted Art Institutions and Artists of the World.

Indications of sickness should at onec be at tended to. Fatal diseases may bo caused by allow ing the bowels to become constipated, and the system to remain in a disordered condition, until tbe disor der has time to develop itselt. An ounce of proven- I tion is worth a pound of cure, is an old and truthful sayiDg. Tbcrclore, wo 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, Selienck’s 1 Mandrake Pills. We know of no remedy so harm less and decisive in its action. It at once strikes at the 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 of the liver if they would take this excellent mediciue 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 patieut of headache in one or two hours, and will rapidly cleanse the liver of surrounding bile, and will effectually prevent a bilious attack.
