It is said that a disease closely resembling tbe epizootic, which afflicted horses two years ago, has broken oat among cattle in this vicinity. Cows particularly are affected by it and the consequences are frequently serious. * The stevedores think they deserve a chance to pull for a prize on the Fourth.

They take the name of the Liquor Dealers' Union and have a constitution and by-laws. _ Maine Railroads.—The Railroad Commis sioners during the past two weeks have been making a very careful examination of the greater patt of the railroads in Maine. From one of the Board, we learn the following facts. The Maine Central is generally in excellent condition, better than a year ago. The Port land & Saco & Poitsmouth and the Boston & juaiue are in excellent conuiuon, me lormer, however, needing a little new iron. The track of the Portland & Rochester is in good condi tion and a few repairs suggested by the Com missioners are being promptly made. The condition of life road has improved every year. The Portland & Ogdensbnrg is in good busi ness condition. The Knox & Lincoln wa3 made the olject of careful scrutiny, because of an impression that its pile bridges are not safe. These bridges were minutely inspected, every pile showing only signs of decay being inspect ed. The Commissioners report the road in fair condition so far as the tracks are concern ed, and the bridges are absolutely safe. A gentleman of long experience in railroad matters remarked recently that Maine railroads would pay no dividends so long as the present heavy rolling stock was used. The engines used for drawing fast trains weigh from fifty to sixty tons, where those weighing twenty or twenty-five tons are amply sufficient. He said that on one Maine road the other day, a sixty ton engine was used to draw sixty passengers. Wasted to Fight.—A coal heaver made quite an exhibition of himself in front of the Custom House yesterday afternoon. He want ed to fight a fellow laborer, and he made all the preliminary arrangements for the affray. He commenced by nearly undressing himself and then pranced about for some time. He was soon surrounded by a large crowd and two of his chums appearing, the trio started in quest of the man who had wronged them so grossly. He was found sitting on a pile of lumber at the bead of Franklin wharf, and the farce be gan. The three men took turns telling bow bad they were to whip him individually and collectively. The man addressed sat quietly chewing bis quid, changing it from one side of bis month to the other, as the speakers finished their remarks. Apparently no one dared to touch him as they retired, and the police ap pearing the crowd dispersed. Cincinnati. Tbe Committee having charge of the arrange ments for the excnrsion to Cincinnati, held a meeting Saturday. Reports from all sections of the slate show a deep interest in the welfare of their candidate, and it Is certain that there will be a large delegation at the convention from Maine. The tickets are good until JuDe 28th (instead of 25th). As tbe convention will he held the 14th there will be ample time to visit Washington and the Centennial Exhibi tion on their return. Information aud tickets cau be obtained of H. L. Osgood, Augusta, or at the Portland & Recbester railroad office, 191 Middle street. Read Estate Tkansfeks.—Tho following are the real estate transfers recorded in this county yesterday : Freeport—Two lots of land fiom Rebecca W. Metcalf to Wm. H. Metcalf. Gray —Lot ol land fiom Horace M. Wight to Freeman H. Morse. BridgtOD—Lot of land from Elliott P. Field to George Tavlor and Wm. F. Perry. Portland—Lot of land on Congress street from Frank G.

Dr. Perry was for three years rector of St. Stephen’s chur h in this city. He resigned io 1864. Rev. C. F. Dole will probably remain at Plymouth church two more Sabbaths. Dr. True has been confined to his house the past week with rheumatic fever. Gen. B. F. Butler came over the Grant Trunk yesterday morning aDd took the early train for Boston._ To Philadelphia.—The excursiou to the Centennial, via the steamer New Brunswick, is to be a popular cue. The agents have already sold sufficient passages to ensure success to tht enterprise, and letters are received daily from people in different parts of the state making enquiries as to the arrangements. Any who d( not desire to make the excursion trip can en gage a passage to Philadelphia at reasonabh rates. The route laid out is a pleasant one am the trip can uot fail to please those fond o steamboat travel. A Ceuel Attack.—While the deputies wen making a seizure at John Sheridan's on Com mercial street the other day a drunken rowd, named John Kelley came along the street wit1 a pair of scissors in his hand and plunge them into the side of the deputy’s horse. Th horse was also stoned and generally abusec Some one gave the deputies the name of tlr rascal and he was arrested. This morning h will be brought befare Judge Knight. CITY AFFAIRS.

They will appear on this occasion in grey coats,white pants and cross-belts. A Word from a Band Bill lint. Mr. Editor:—The unexpected defeat of the ltesolutes at Brunswick last Saturday by the Bowdoins has been the chief topic of conver sation in base ball circles, and the cause of that defeat earnestly discussed. There appears to be a general disposition to attribute tho defeat almost entirely ta Black’s pitching, and I no tice that your reporter and the Argus repoiter put the blame upon him. Now I do not know Mr. Black personally and confess that I do not regard him as an effective pitcher, and doubt if he will ever make one, still Hike to see jus tice done even in the repoit of a base ball match, and the score book will show that he is not entirely to blame for tbe fourteen runs in the first inning. The Bowdoins should have been retired for 3 ruus, for 11 runs were made after three chances for outs were given and missed. It was bad fielding quite as much as bad pitching that yielded the disastrous four, teen runs. The Argus reporter says the Bow doins made? runs in tbe second inning off of Leighton’s pitching. The Bowdoins made one base hit in that inning, and J should like to know how 5 runs can be made off of one base hit. Every one of these 5 runs were made through loose fielding and St. John’s inability to catch Leighton’s pitching. And just here comes in the weak point of tho ltesolutes—the want of a change catcher—for when Leighton pitches they have no one to fill his place behind the hat. Another thing which Captain St. John mest lemedy is the inactivity of the out fielders. I am led to say these thiugs through no unfriendly feeling towards the Ltesolutes, for in common with all lovers of the game I take pride in the record of the boys, and sin cerely desire to see that record sustained this season, but Black’s piiching is not the only thing to be improved. Amateur. The Bus Explosion. Mr. Editor:—I wish, through your paper, to remove any prejudice that may have arisen in l“v C*£<llLJCJl, LLlOjUU accuuub of the sad accident of last Friday, as many are of the belief that I was overseer and in charge ofjthe work. My brother has not been in my employ for a long while, but I was obliged to shelter him in my house and feed him at my table, he not having the wherewith, and being my brother; but in his movements, he was as independent of me, as of auy other man in the city. My house was and is open to him, and my shop, and he Game and went when he please 1 S3 he would go anywhere else. The day before the accident he we'nt to Mr. Conant’s with bis man, and when he got through he told his price and was paid, together with a small amount that he claimed for previ ous service, neither of which transactions I had any knowledge of or concern with, so that my connection with the affair is and has beeu as remote as if any of the rest of my brothers meet with an accident when I hardly know where they are. I wish also to infcrm the clerk who went up stairs before the explosion and yet in sists upon his being a watchful eye witness of the whole affair, that there is a point at which a person can not smell gas, (and tittars are no exception.) I am therefore ready to believe that my brother came down to wait rather than for breath, as he or any one might be “gassed” into eternity without being conscious of any impurity in his surrounding atmosphere. Now, Sir, while I deeply regret that such an accident should occur in his or any other man’s hands, and deeply sympathize with any who have lost or suffered by it, I sincerely hope that these few remarks will remove any doubts of my ability or carefulness, as I claim to be ex tremely so, as my record will show.

Little* Co.,Stanton Block Exchange street, have tickets to sell to the Cincinnati Convention. The First Distict Nomination.—Concern ing the nomination of a candidate for Repre sentativejto Congress, the Bridgton News says: —“The Republican convention for the nomina tion of a candidate for Congress for this Dis trict will be held in Portland on the twenty ninth of June. .There is now but little doubt that the Hon. Thomas B. Reed of Portland will receive the united sunnnrt nt rhn I'nmlwir land delegation;—not because he is a Cumber land man, but because his character and abili ty are such, as to command the confidence and respect of the whole district. Should Mr. Reed receive the nominatioo, as there is now every reason to believe that he will, the Re publicans of the First District will have con tributed their full share towards making the representation of Maiue in the next Congress unexceptionable. More than ever before, perhaps, it is impor tant for the interest of the country that our ablest men should be put in nomination for Congress, and we trust that at the convention so soon to be held in Portland the only ques tion in selecting a candidate will be, not wheth er this town or that has had a representative in Congress during the last decade, or who has the most money to expend in the campaign, but who can bring the most ability to the con sideration of the important questions sure to engross the attention of this next Congress. If this, as it should be, is the test in the Dis trict convention, wo may predict with entire confidence the nomination of Mr. Reed. Jersey Herd Book.—The Herd Book just published by the Maine State Pure-Blood Jer sey Cattle Association, will be found a valua ble document, that should be in the possesion of all our dairymen and farmers.
