The claim made for them is that they serve the community by making that very class afraid to deal in coun terfeits, who,if not thus cheated and so taught of experience, would be circulating millions of bad money every year.

There was an appropriate performance and a presentation on the stage to the veteran.* Cue of the most amusing incidents of the even ing was Mr. Levey’s telling how he had to change his original paternal surname of O’Shaugbnessy into the maternal one of Levey. He went to London to form part of the orches tra of the Haymarket Theatre while yet very young,and the manager insisted on the change, declaring that no London audience would stand an Irish fiddler with such an outlandish name as O'Shaughnessy. “And now,” said the vet eran “they have to tolerate au O’Shaughnessy iu the house of commons.” F OREIQ N.

The em bassy also received a message stating that the Softas first required the Sultan to relinquish the title of Caliph, which rendered him invio lable. The Sultan afterwards abdicated, Le Temps adds that the new Sultan is dispos ed to remove Hassein Avni Pasha, present Minister of War, because he favored the pro ject of Abdnl Aziz to make his son instead of nephew heir to the throne. Murad Bpeaks French. This is considered a great advantage, as he will be able to dispense with interpreters when he receives foreign ambassadors. News of the revolution is well received in both policical and financial circles. It is be lieved the settlement of the Eastern difficulties is thereby facilitated. It is stated that the new Turkish ministry will comprise Midbat Pasha as Grand Vizier, and Sadyk Pasha, at present Ambassador to France, as Minister of Finance. According to reports published in Cologne Mid bat Pasha and the Grand Vizier were at the head of the revolutionary movement. Murad has accepted three of the propositions submit ted to him, viz.: The institution of a perma nent assembly of notables, the abolition of the Seraglio, the reduction of the civil list to 5, 000,000 piasites. London, May 31.—The Standard’s Vienna despatch says the succession of Murad to the Ottoman throne is generally due to to Russia’s instigating Servia and Montenegro to immedi ate warfare. The Standard’s correspondent at Rome says it is reported that the Italian government has received an invitation to come into the ar rangement for united action in the East.

Dedication of n .Soldier's Monument in Wntereille. Waterville, May 30.—The observance of Decoration Day was of more than ordinary in terest in the town to-day because of the dedica tion of a soldiers’ monument which has been a subject of much interest by the people of the town for some time. The monument is one of the most beautiful in tbe State and reflects the highest credit to the taste and patriotism of those who have secured its building. The mon ument consists of a granite base of rare design surmounted by a bronze statute of the citizen, soldier. The procession was very large. The Colby Rifles performed escort duty, and in that capacity attracted much attention by their sol diery appearance. The procession was made up of Heath Post, G. A. R., Odd Fellows, fire companies and a Urge body’of citizens. Busi ness was generally suspended and nearly 3000 people were prosent at the exercises. The ora tion was delivered by M. E. Stevens, Esq., of Portland, and A. L. Hinds of Benton read an original poem. A quartette furnished excel lent music. The exercises were most impres sive. The following is au abstract of Mr. Stev ens’ address: The speaker remarked in opening thatitwere well if. to the memorial of the fallen ones here erected,there were added only the unseen tear and the unspoken sigh from loving hearts while strangers present should stand by bowed aud hushed, " ’Tis manliness to bo heart broken here. Tim errovn nf oartli's nnhlonoua ia utoforo/l lin a tear.” Yet important lessons may be drawn from the memories to which the day is sacred. As Americans we bear a common love to this broad and free and fertile land. We are proud of it and of nothing more than of the fair leg acy of daring and heroism bequeathed by our citizen soldiery. Once, twice and again have they come from the pursuits of peace to wi n their noblest laurels on fields of blood, giving life itself that the nation might live. Beferring to the rebellion he said it needs not that its story should be told today. It is only just below the horizon of present view, the gleam of the battle light and the | rush of the bayonet charge come to us even now as the after-ripples of the waters upon a sea-shore, yesterday lashed by the billows and beat by thelsurges of storm. As one after another the passing years come between ns and those events, we may accept each annual way-mark as but steps in a ladder, whose ascent shall enable ns better to under stand the conflict and more correctly to appre ciate the devotion and heroism of those whose graves we deck with flowers today. Whence came these men! From what sea of influence sprang, Minerva-like, fully armed that array of heroes? To these and like questions eur vantage height of fifteen years will enable us to find ready reply. The speaker then passed in rapid review the conditions, physical and po litical, from which the fathers of the nation wrought the power and renown of which we were so proud at the opening of the rebellion, and dwelt especially upon the earnest purpose, the untiring energy, the frugality and honesty, the brilliant enterprise by which they were char acterized. It wa3 in the golden age of the growth, the fruitage time of progress resulting from the labors of such men, that the citizen soldiery of 18C1-65 were born and reared. Those Adamses and Warrens and Knoxes and their compeers were the sires of these; the Heaths.the Stevens’s and others who were nam ed. The speaker here introduced and read from several original letters written during camp and hospital life by Sergeant Major Stevens ef the 10th Maine, one of those whoso names we have npon the tablet of the monu ment, and said I have read these extracts not for anything remarkable or singular in them, but because they are but examples of the messages which come from hospitals and battlefields and sometimes from prison pens through all that bloody strife, tell ing, as can be told with no other such empha sis, the indomitable heroism, the surpassing devotion of the Union soldiers of the war of the rebellion. They were schooled in the vir tues and graces of the fathers, and so giew strong and brave and ready for that supreme call of duty to which the country’s hour of need gave voice. Hence while rejoicing that they have lived, proud that they were our “boys in blue,” let us find in what they were and the virtues they exemplified the way-marks for our guidance, and in their fame, their glory, their rest, the beckoning genii who shall woo us to like patriotism, like devotion, like consecration to the land we love. So if in any future day a like danger should imperil this glorious land, this Memorial we rear shall rouse us as the warning of Paul Bevere roused the yeomanry of Middlesex, and inspire us as the presence of u,1 ~ gi —: — _ i , itt: 1 a “Bat,” said the speaker “1 do not forget that the Rebellion is ended, that these lives so freely given purchased victory; that the stream of our national life is flowing on broader, deeper, grander than ever before; that while musket volleys are speaking, over the graves of the fallen, the emotions we cannot utter, the Cen tennial bells are ringing their glad peals as we enter a .second century of growth and progress. As midst the light and beauty of a sultry day in summer time come dark clouds, the light ning’s flash, the thunder’s roll, the pouring floods, only to give the glad beauty of a Bright er evening and a more glorious to-morrow, so there came to us, the darkness aDd the gloom of civil strife that after the storm we might en ter upon a new and more vigorous national life and control with higheT skill the agencies in whose ouworking the perfect manhood of our nation shall be secnred. Let ns not forget, therefore, that if the institutions bequeathed by the Fathers were worthy of our love, much more binding should be the ties which link us in strong affection to the new nation, the per fected freedom, the consolidated nationality these later heroes have won.” Alluding to Col. \V. S. Heath, whose body was never recovered, he said: “I am reminded that there is many a marble slab in Northern chnrch-yards which tells only of a hero absent; the only report of them is ‘missing;’ such was he whom-you mourn to-day, who from the fear ful strife at Gaines Mill never returned. Some where in that luxuriant Southern soil his dust mingles and sleeps. The Persian poets suDg “Each tinv flower That flings its perfume on the summer hour, Draws its young life, when first its rootlets start From a pure drop that warmed a hero’s heart." So to-day, children, brother, friends, while the stern fate of war forbids you to "twine the flower, .wreath and bestrew his grave,” you may cherish the pleasing thought that moth er earth will be faithful to him, aud to all these missing ones, aud that with each returning May ehelwill crown their restiug places with blossoms whose rootlets kiss the precious drops they so freely, nobly shed. In conclusion the speaker said, it is fitting then, that here in their early home, within sound of the college bells which called so many of them to the training aud culture which made them what they were, you should rear this beautiful and imperishable monumeut, that in thus keeping ever present a memento and symbol of their glorious deeds, you may bo enabled better to fulfill the uncounted debt of love it is your joy to pay. To this holy purpose iet this beautilu! work, wrought in enduring bronze and moulded by tbe rich and expressive touch of art, be dedicate and consecrate: for this benign aud sacred use, long may it stand. niuuuug iu an ucui m naiujci a|i|ucuauuu ui the blessings we enjoy, and inspiring in ali lives a grander devotiou to the principles on which they rest, now, and in all the days to come, so making vital in our own act, the spirit and example of those fallen ones that, though “Gone!—in a nobler form they rise; Dead!—we may clasp their hands in ours, And catch the light of their glorious eyes. And wreathe their brows with immortal flowers. Wherever a noble deed is done, There are the souls of our heroes stirred; Wherever a field for truth is won. There are our heroes voices heard.” In Fnirfleld, Faibfield, May 30.—Memorial Day exer cises were observed at this place at five o’clock this afternoon. Services were held at the cem* etery. A special train of eleven cars from Waterville brought the Hook and Ladder Com pany, Graud Army boys, Colby Rifles, and a large number of people to join ns in the ser vices.

New York, May 30.—The sub-committee of the congressional committee judiciary conclud ed its sessions in this city this afternoon and in the evening all the members with tbe exception of Mead returned to Washington. William E. Dodge, of the firm of Phelps, Dodge & Co , testified to settling with the government for $250,000, to which were added $21,000 for ex penses. None of that was paid by him to Noah Davis, nor was a dollar given to Wake man for that purpose. He never had any doubt but that Gen. Butler had a share of the money paid by their firm.

Tbe firm was given to understand that if they did not settle with the government $1,750,000 worth of their goods would be seized.

Washington, May 30.—The Senate having decided it has jurisdiction in the Belknap im peachment matter the opinion is expressed that the trial will be postponed till November next when the Senate will reassemble for that special purpose. Belknap has a large number of witnesses to be examiued, and as his coun sel will in defence of their client contest every step of the managers on the part of the House of Representatives there is a strong probability that the trial will continue six weeks or two months. Mr. Lord, chairman of the board of managers, expresses the opinion that it will occupy at least six weeks. It is believed that to go on with the trial now would prolong the session of Congress until the latter part of August or 1st of September, as in addition to the time consumed by the trial a month or six weeks will be required to finish up the abso lutely necessary legislative business of passing the annual appropriation hills. Quite a num ber of senators are in favor of postponing the time till fall and when the question is submit ted to the Senate they will urge their views as to the advisability of sneb postponement. Grave doubts are expressed by many disinter ested persons whether in view of the fact that less than two thirds of the Senate have voted in favor of jurisdiction there is anything to be gained by proceeding with the trial at all. Very eminent legal authorities who have no connection whatever with the proceedings as sert that tbe 27 senators who yesterday voted against taking jurisdiction will not be preclud ed by the Senate’s action from yoting “not guilty” on this jurisdictional ground when tbe tbe final issne is presented. The Kerr Mcnadal. District Attorney Bliss, after testifying on other matters, on being questioned by Mr. Caulfield, said he was mainly responsible for Harney's appearance at Washington as a wit ness. He (Bliss) bad known tbe facts in pos session of Harney about ten months. He had csmmunicated them to Mr. Bass, a member of the committee. Harney was an appraiser and Darling’s right hand man. When Darling’s nn..nA/.(inr. mitl. thu Thiel A Bank was uhder investigation an effort was made to stop the investigation by a threat that if Harney’s connection with the affairs of the bank was exposed, he would make some dam agiog revelations about Mr. Kerr. Mr. Bliss said Mr. Bass told him he would not present any charges against Mr. Kerr un less they seemed to be well founded, and that he (Bliss) had carefully questioned Harney in regard to his relations with Mr. Kerr. He was satisfied Harney was truthfnl and honest. The Cabinet. The understanding is all the recent Cabinet changes take practical effect from the 1st of June.

[first despatch.] Quebec, May 30.—Fire started in Scotfstreet it 2 o’clock today, nod is now raging. Fifty houses are already destroyed. Efforts of the Sremeu appear useless, aud owing to the pre vailing high wind and amount of inflammable material in the neighborhood, it is feared the greater part of il.e St. Louis suburb will bn de stroyed.

Already the houses destroyed ate counted by huudreds Almost the whole pop ulation of the lower part of St. Louis snbuibs are moving, and huudreds ot poor, unfortunate sufferers will he compelled to pass the night in the open fields. Thousands of people are on the streets viewing the fire. The water was turned off from the ward when the fire started, which will account for the rapid spread. The Asylum of Good Shepherds is now out of dan ger [THIRD DESPATCH ] The fire which broke out in Scott street at 2 p. ra.‘ is now burning fiercely bat is somewhat under control. The high wind of the afternoon has moderated and a good supply of water is now available. The fire has passed through the contre of St Lonis sububs, extending from the extensive western limit to the eastern limit, facing the ortifications, then southerlo to Grand Allee, and northerly to 3d street, south of St. John street. Only a rough estimate of the loss can be made to night. The number of houses burhed may be put down at t,BOO and the loss at least $1, 000,000, Fields adjacent to the burnt district are covered with goods of all descriptions and huudreds of poor sufferers will be compelled to pass the night without shelter. Scott street, where the fire originated, bears unenviable no toriety for fires, having been almost wholly de stroyed twice within a few years. THE NAVAL INVESTIGATION. Secretary Robeson’s Defence Prepared. [Special dispatch to the Boston Journal.] Washington, May 3.—Secr-^ry Rob' n has prepared what his friends s*y 'a a u sive answers to the charges TP.*®0 ” . him by inferences irom detached masse* of testi mon.v which have been given out from the Na val Committee. Mr. Robeson says that it is physically impossible for him to be personally cognizant of all the abases in the navy yards, abuses which had prevailed for generations be fore he came iuto the Navy Department, and that it would be quite as just to charge the Secretary of the Treasury, for instance, with all the petto abuses that exist at the custom houses in the country. He scarcely knows a naval constructor, and he has never had any thing to do with contracts. He says that mo9t of the parties from E. G. Cattell received com missions had their transactions with the pur chasing paymasters and not with the Depart ment at Washington. The hank accaunt which the committee demanded from the Camden Bank and of the receiver of Jay Cooke and Co., showing his transactions with A. G. Cattell & Co., can be explained, and will show that all his transactions with A. G. Cattell & Co. were of an ordinary business character, and always regarded as legitimate and proper among busi ness men. A. G. Cattell, the ex-Senator from New Jersey, has always been liis personal friend, but his acquaiutauce with E. S. Cattell has been limited. MKTJEO RO LOGICAL.
