Died at Grand Forks, Dakota Territory, May 5th, Janies Deering, son of Nathaniel Deering of Portland, Maine. Mr. Deering, at the breaking oat of the late war, entered the Navy as Paymaster’s Clerk and was on blockade duty in the Gulf on the frigate “Santee” and other vessels, for over two years. He was then transferred to the Mississippi Squadron, then commanded by Rear Admiral D. D. Porter, and in 1864 received a commission as Ensign in the Navy. He was executive officer of the iron clad gun boat “Ozark” during the Red River expedition and was complimented in tbe reports of his supe rior officers for his gallant and meritorious con. duct during that time. He remained on duty in the Squadron until tbe close of the war, when he resigned his position in the Navy to accept one in the Quartermaster’s Department in the Army, and was stationed, at various frontier forts in New Mexico and the West, until 1871, when he resigned and went into mercantile business in Grand Forks, Dakota Territory, where he resided at the time of his death, which occurred very suddenly May 5th after an illness of a few days. The Grand Forks Plaindealer of May 26 closes an extended notice of Mr. Deering with the following trib ute to his memory. "‘Captain Deering had en deared himself in the hearts of our people by his upright dealings in business matters,, his generous and openheaitedness, and his frank ness in all matters whether public or private. He mado no distinction between persons, but was ever ready to salute in true military style, or doff his hat to the poor and lowly as well as those of rank and wealth. As a citizen he was prompt and energetic and ever ready to do his share in the work of promoting the welfare of this place. In a word, no man in our place had fewer enemies and none who commanded more respect from all classes.” Personal.

Common Council.—At a special meeting of Ibe Common Council last evening it was voted to accept tlie iuvitatiou of Bosworth Post to participate in exercises to-day. BANK OF PORTLAND. The End of Thin Ratter at Lam. Mr. Franklin J. Hollins, tlie assignee of the Bank of Portland, met the creditors at the office of the Register in Bankruptcy yesterday morning, and made his final report. He stated that he had carefully gone through with the books and traced out where the money had gone, as far as it was possible. Prom Mr. Rol lins’s statement it appeared that Mr. W. N. Goold, the manager, was a defaulter to the Second National Bank, at the time of its disso lution, to the sum of $16,000. In order to pre vent prosecution on a charge of embezzlement, be conceived the plan of continuing that bank in a private form, for at least two years, when the statute of limitations would save him from that scandal. In a little over two years, by vouchers, Mr. Rollins showed that Mr. Goold had expended for his personal uses $10,000. aud this sum did not include incidentals, for which no vouchers could be found. In fact, in Sept. 1873, a little over one year from the time Mr. Goold started the Bank of Portland, he was a failed man. He had spent every cent of the depositors’ money. At this juncture he induc ed Mr, Moses B. Clements to hecome a deposi tor, and by that means, and by giving out that he was a partner, he succeeded in tiding over his troubles, and commenced trading on Mr. Clements’s oapital which went the way of the other. Indeed in Sept. 1873, while he bad spent $10,000 since starting the bank, the amount of deposits up to that time had been but $21,000 and Mr. Clements’s $42,000 proved a godsend. Mr. Rollins succeeded in disposing of the as sets so as to realize the sum of $29,354.22, which is on deposit in the Canal National Bank. The liabilities amount to $82,486.11. The creditors number 91, and they voted to declare a divi dend of 30 per cent. The creditors expressed themselves well pleased with the excellent manner in which Mr. Ro'lins had conducted the affairs, and they were generally surprised to find that so large a percentage would bo received. It is generally thought that Mr. Goold cleared $6000 when ho left Portland to take up his residence in St John, where he now resides. Removal.—Messrs. Pierce & Dunn, who with others, are the proprietors of the Pierce’s Paper File and Binder, have taken rooms at 10J Exchange street, up stairs, where they will enter quite extensively into the manufacture of this article alore. They have already received many orders and the “paper file and binder” is highly commended by those who have used it. The proprietors hope to be able ere long to •‘•v.ii luiuutiuu upuu uuu luaiaov. A Church Secession.—Cornish is agitated over a church secession. The Rev. Mr. Blades has been minister over the Methodist church in that town for the past year. This spring the conference refused to continue him there, send ing the Rev. Mr. Andrews instead. Thereupon some Methodists withdrew, and with others formed a new congregation, holding its meet ings in the Free Baptist church, where Mr. Blades now preaches.

The steel plate is 31-2 inches thick. The safe is four feet high, two and one-half feet wide, and 23 inches deep, and is supplied with a Yale time lock. Its cost, put in posi tion, was $1200. OXFORD COUNTY. A fearful fire has been raging in the heavily timbered woods in CoDway, on the line of the Portland & Ogdensburg railroad, in the vicini ■ ty of Rattlesnake mountain. It is estimated that between four and five thousand dollars worth of timber was destroyed. Some of the territory over which the fire burned is owned by D. R. Hastings, Charles Tibbetts, William Jordan and others of Fryeburg. PENOBSCOT COUNTY. The Whig says that Dr. J. F. Babcock of Bangor, was recently awarded the “Johnston Prize” of a suspension dental engine, valued at $75, in New York, for the best written and most instructive “essay upon facial neuralgia aDd its treatment.” Among his competitors for the award were dentists from all parts of United States.

Farmers have sown some grain, but previous to Monday had done little planting.-Pingree & Co.’s drive is near that place.-Caterpillars are very plenty in the apple trees, and the price of ap ples will be a continual tight.-We received quite a scare by the announcement that the Umbagog dam had broke and 16 feet of water was coming on the valley farmers. Later we learned that only sixteen feet of the dam had gone out, which .settled our nerves somewhat. The river continues to fall notwithstanding the break in tbe dam. Would it not be well to have those dams examined and made secure if insecure? YORK COUNTY.
