Tiie L ist New Project.—The New York Evening Post, referring to the general amnesty and impartial suffrage project, now so much discussed, expresses the opinion that if such a project had Mr. Johnson’s countenance, and was urged by him, it would probably ire receiv ed with favor by the mass of the Southern peo ple, Tiie Post continues: \Ye think it right to add that our own pri vate information is to the effect that the Presi dent does not at this time favor the project, though we are told that he listens to argu ments for it. In anything that is done cart must ‘lie taken that we get the condition. Wo hive -noticed that one or two journal), iu thaiiveal for this method of reconstrbction, have advocated tire release of Mr. Davis, in the belief that if we are trustful and generous, we shall get in re turn what is desired. We do not favor any confidence in such a matter. If a practicable scheme of exchanging amnesty for suffrage can be contrived, and if both parties are w.l ling to agree upon such an exchange, it is no doubt the simplest method of reconstruction.— But we oughi not to give without being sure, that we shall get. As the poople have in the recent elections declared that Congress shall demand “conditions precedc.nt”of the Southern states, it is only fair and proper that the declara tion of general suffrage should be precedent— should precede the. declaration of general am nesty, and not follow it. The Fire at Sarnia.—No particulars of the fire of the sheds of the Grand Trunk Railway at Sarnia, up to last evening. As the wires were out of order Saturday nothing could he received. We are informed by Mr. Portcous, the Freight Agent iu this city, that in answer to a dispatch scut by him on Saturday, be re ceived a reply yesterday stating that their fears were realized and that particulars of the fire had been lorwarded to tiie Superintendent of the Western Division. From this, ami from the fact that Messrs. Bradley, Coolidge & Rog ers had received a dispatch stating that their flour was safe, Mr. Portcous is of opinion that no freight for Portland or for tiie Eastward was destroyed, but that the fire occurred in those sheds in which was storod the freight boned to Chicago, Milwaukee and the West. We hope it may turn out so, and that the circumstances of the case may soon he known in order that the anxiety of our merchants may be relieved The Queen of Spain hissed at the Thea tre.—It is customary in Madrid to receive the Queen with applause when she makes her ap pearance in her box at the Theatre, whilst tiie orchestra plays tiie royal march. When a few evenings ago this air was being played, the au dience manifested their disapproval, and in the end began to hiss, upon which the Queen rose and quitted the theatre. Tfiis may hasten the execution of the coup (Vetat project of which we spoke yesterday, and of which the correspondent of the Oowrriev de Bayonne, who will not be suspected of connivance with the opposition, confirms the existence in the following terms: Marshal Narvaez has adopt ed a scries of measures which, according to information we have received, may he regard ed as the prelude of a coup d'etat' whioti lias b. en silently prepared liy the set who sur rounded the Queen." —Some men (says Hawthorne)liayo no right to perform great deeds, or think high thoughts; and when they do so. it is a kind of humbug.— They had better keep within their own propri ty- ___ Bu^iur^ IVoliccs.

P. Willis LATEST NEWS BY TEI.EGKAI'H TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. ■ UMH Tuesday Morning’, November 20, 1866. The Political Cauldron at Wash ington. Rumors of a Coup D’Etat by the President. Erlbitr lo Induce tbe President to Ignore Congress and Make Terras with the South. Mis. JOHNSON NTILL WINES THAN THE PEOPLE. Combination to Urge Amnesty find Impartial Suff rage. New 1'obk, Nov. 17. The morning papers have the following spec I lals relative to the President: The Herald says, in view of the recent con sultation between the President and leading men in Washington, it is confidently believed that the former is on the eve of a grand coup d'clat, which will gratify his friends and bewil der his enemies. There is certainly an earnest desire on both sides to compromise the difficul ties which obstruct the speedy readmission of the Southern States. The Tribune says Chief Justice Chase’s first interview with the President was merely to give the latter some opinions in judicial mat ters. The second interview was merely a friendly one, and Judge Chase took occasion to advise Mr. Johnson to depart from his present policy and urge the Southern Legislatures to adopt the Constitutional Amendment as a fin al settlement of present difficulties; that in case they objected to the second and third clau ses of the amendment, to compromise by sub srituting universal amnesty and impartial suf frage. Not only has Judge Chase urged this course on the President, but so also hare sev eral prominent men of his own party, both from the North and South. Clement C. Clay is among the latter. Whether the arguments and facts on which they are based will change the course of the President, remains to be seen. A couple of Democratic Congressmen, who have lately conversed with Mr. Johnson, state that he has no idea of altering his present policy, and claim that the election had no ef fect except to make him more determined in his old plan. They claimKwith what truth is uncertain, that he insists that the people wdfre hoodwinked and deluded, and will soon be'frn to see their mistake and ad .pt his views. The Times says Mr. Johnson has not indi cated his purpose relative to the amnesty-suf frage plan, though the geufclemen who advocate the proposition represent that the President has given them encouragement to expect that lie will adopt their suggestions. Several news paper correspondents have endeavored to cre ate doubts of the existence of such a combina tion of leading men for the purpose of induc ing the President to accept the proposition and advise the Southern people. I am enabled to say, from personal knowledge, that such a combination does exist. A number of gentle men, co-operating in it, had interviews with Johnson. They have been laboring in the mat ter for a month, visiting and corresponding with influential men North and South. The Commercial’s Washington special says it is confidently expected that reconstruction will be amicably settled in the approaching session of Congress. Negotiations for that purpose are in progress between the President and leading politicians of all parties North and South. The basis of the settlement will be universal suffrage aud general amnesty. The President partially acceeds to this proposition, but lie insists, upon Constitutional grounds, that the question of suffrage properly belongs to the States, and is so far adverse to agita tion of Congress upon that subject. If assur ances can be obtained from Southern leaders of the speedy adoption of uniy^®*:®1 au<&>»**<> the President will Waist? ills objections. FROM MEXICO. Expedition for the Recapture of Tampico. Maximilian at Oi*i^aI>a. Aitack on Maiamoras. Washington, Nov. 1!). The Navy Department lias received infor mation of the arrival of the Tallapoosa at Gal veston from oft' Tampico. The Tallapoosa will he succeeded by the Paul Jones rear the latter place. No foreign vessels of war were off the river or in the port ol Tampico Oct. 29th, and only one American vessel was ill the harbor. Tampico at present is in command of Ool Gamez, with a force of 800 men, controlling customs and enforcing payment of loans. The authorities of Victoria, the capital of the State, do not recognize those of Tampico, and tlieir guerrillas seize all goods found en route for the interior markets despatched from the Tampico Custom House. By letters from San Luis Potosi it is ascer tained that Mejia and Dupire arc to leave that place early ill November, with an expeditionary force for the recapture of Tampico. Gen. Favor, who lias a force of from 1500 to 2000 men in H rustics, and is now holding Tam pico, has issued a proclamation declaring Puebla Viejio open to foreign commerce, which, it is feared, will lead to open hostilities between the forces under his command and those under Col. Gomez. Under this state of affairs the in habitants of Tampico are in constant dread of a most serious disorder and the probability of indiscriminate plunder of the town. The United States steamer Winooski arrived at Key Weston the 10th. New Orle ans, Nov. 19. Vera Cruz dates to Nov. Kith have been re ceived.

A special dispatch from Brownsville to the Courier, dated the 11th, reports that a spirited attack oil Matamoras took place on the 7th, and lasted several hours. The assaulting party, under Tapia, gained the advantage, but dis trusting Cortinas, did not follow up their suc cess. The defenders lost twenty prisoners, and Col. Bias,their commander, was arrested for bad conduct on the field. On the night of the 10th inSt. Tapia died ol cholera., This event will change the current of affairs.

A special meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen was held last evening, for the pur pose of giving the petitioners for a sewer in High street, from Doering street to Cumber land street, a hearing. Statements showing the necessity of such a sewer were made by Messrs. P. Barnes, Isaac Jackson, H. J. Libby, H. C, Newhall, W. F. Milliken and James Freeman. After hearing the statements of the parties interested, Alderman Phinney offered an order directing the Committee on Drains and Sewers to build the sewer prayed for, if they deem the same necessary. Alderman Morgan moved to amend, by con stituting the whole Board a Committee to visit the premises and examine the same. Alderman Holden thought some temporary relief could be afforded without going to the heavy expense which this sewer would cost at the present time. Alderman Whittemore was in favor of grant ing relief to the petitioners. Alderman Giddings thought something should be done to relieve the petitioners. Alderman Phinney withdrew his order and on motion of Alderman Morgan it was voted that the Board would meet on the premises at 4 o’clock this afternoon to inspect the same. The petition was then laid upon the table. Andrew J. Kich was appointed an under taker. P. Y. M. C. A.—The second lectnre of the course prepared under the auspices of this so ciety will be given at the State Street Chnrch, on Monday evening the 2Cth iutrt., by Governor Bullock, of Massachusetts. The subject is, “ The Five Historic Periods of America,” a theme which can hardly fail to draw out the best powers of this popular and effective ora tor. Music suitable to the place and occasion has been provided by the committee, who, we think, are wise thus to add to the attractions of their already attractive course. f We are requested to state that the pews on one side of the church will be reserved until a quarter past seven for the holders of season tickets. Diseases of the Eye, Ear and Throat.— It will be seen by our advertising columns that Dr. Carpenter, the Oculist and Aurist, will visit this city professionally next week. Ac cording to the press of Bangor, Augusta and other towns, the Doctor has performed many surprising cures during his two years’ practice in this State. They assert that he is a gentle man of veracity, and that the certificates that have been published in their papers are bona fide. Those suffering from the diseases to which he devotes his attention, should give him a call. The following contributions have been re ceived by the Mayor since our last report: Citizens of Washington, D.

Dennis, from Newbury port may be found at South side Long wharf with a cargo of silver skin onions, of the best quality. The Affray Sunday Night.—Officers Por ter and Matthews, in going their rounds Sun day night, came across some eight or ten young men on Pore street, who wero making consid erable noiso and disturbance. Two or ihrce of them wero engaged in smashing boxes and throwing them, with lumber, on the sidewalk. The lead »r of these appeared to be Henry Me Glinohy, who, as goon as he saw the offioers dropped a stick of timber he had in his hands and rnn. The officers gave chase to him anil eatne up with him on Commercial street, when, finding escape impossible, he showed fight.— But officer Matthews caught hold of him and held him nntil officer Porter came up. As they were attempting to iron him two ot his com rades came up and endeavored to rescue him; one of them had a knife and the other a revolv er, and they threatened to shoot the officers un less they let McGlinehy off. One of the bank watchmen named Lnnigan came to the assist ance of the police, and with bis help McGlinehy was ironed and taken off. They had got to Fore street, when his two comrades again came up and made a second attack upon the officers with knife, clubs and revolvers, swearing they would have McGlinehy or would die in the at tempt. Officer Porter threatened to shoot the fellow who had the revolver if he approached. The fellow did not hoed the warning of the of ficer but was coming on with pistol in one hand and club in the other, wlien Porter fired, and the follow, who was hit by the shot exclaimed, “I’ve got enough,” and cleared out, with his comrade. McGlinehy was then taken to the lock-up. Last evening officer Matthews arrested the fellow who was shot. Hia name is John Dris coll. He was found at Michael McGlinchy’s boarding house on Fore street. The shot of officer Porter, it was found, had hit him in the fleshy part of the thigh, and had not been extracted. He was taken to jail. Hia com rade is shill at large. The officers are sustained by our leading men in the shooting of Driscoll. Arrests for Barn-burning.—In our Sat urday’s issue we stated that Ambrose Buck and William Morrill, Jr., were arrested on the charge of burring the barn of Ervin Robinson at East Sumner. We learn that the parties assembled last Friday at Buckfield village aDd Buck and Morrill were brought before a Jus tice of the Peace for a hearing. But it seems this charge against these men was too much hurried, being made without a particle of proof to sustain it. The Justice, after hearing the complaint, waited for the evidence, but none came and the prisoners were discharged. There were several witnesses summoned, but the At torney for the Government examined them in private; and he soon became satisfied that they knew nothing tending to connect these men with the crime. He did not even appear before the Justice, as he was satisfied—and so express ed himself- that the case was clearly with the respondents. It seems to us that when men attempt to hunt barn-burners or burglars they ought to have some evidence, either circum stantial or otherwise—something beyond and above mere suspicion—before a man is arrested for crime. We understand a peddler, a stranger to Mr. Robinson, put up with him on the night of the fire. His horse and carriage were burnt, and in the morning he poked about in the ashes and found a pair of new shoes which had re cently been put upon his horse. He said he would save them and carried them away, leav ing the iron axle-trees of his wagon. We know not to what extent the peddler was i-»-—a — «—» lusurea at all. This fire, or the origin of it, is still sliouded in mystery. Portland Horticultural Society.—At their annual meeting, held on S.ituiday, the following persons were chosen officers tor the ensuing year: T. C. Hersey, President; N. A. Foster, John M. Brown, William C. Robinson, Abner Lowell, Eliphalet Clark, Vice Presi dents; John W. Dana, Corresponding Secrcta ry; S. B. Beckett, Recording Secretary; Sam’l Rolfe, Treasurer. Market Street.—Tire 8tar proposes that the name of Lime Street be changed to Mar ket street We second that proposition hearti ly, and agree with our contemporary, that tho change would be “very appropriate and sig nificant.” Casco Street Church.— We understand there is an unusual attention to religious mat ters in the CascoStrect Church,and that meet ings will be held in this church every evening this week, commencing at 7 1-2 o’clock. 8. E. Spbinq, Treasurer of tho Relief Com mittee, hereby acknowledges the receipt of SWI from Stephen Hinckley & Co., of Gorham. THE STATK. —The Dover Observer says: “More than fifty tons of supplies have passed by our office with in the past fortnight to Mooseliead Lake, for the use of lumbermen, who are engaged there the coming winter.” —The Calais Advertiser says that Mr. Wm. Robertson has nearly completed a bark of 440 tons at that place; also that Mr. Rideout has a bark of 430 tons ready for launching, and Messrs. Short Bros, a fine ship also about fin ished—and there are two or three others on the stocks in difierent states of forwardness. —In Bath, Lewiston and Gardiner horse thieves are lively. —On Friday evening as we learn from the Lewiston Journal, Mrs Ira Berry of that place, was blowing out a kerosene lamp, preparatcyy to retiring, when the lamp exploded, throwing the oil over her face and body, which were im mediately enveloped in flames. The screams of the unfortunate woman at once attracted persons to her room, but before tho fames could be extinguished she wa9 horribly burned on her face, neck, breast and arms, to the very tips of her fingers. She wore only a night dress at the time of the accident, so that the fire streamed at once over her very flesh. The unfortunate woman lingered in great agony till 10 Saturday A. M„ when death came to her relief. —Chas. J. Talbot, Esq., removed from the office of Surveyor of the port at Portland, 1 c cause he did not enuorse “my policy,” and who of course is succeeded by a Democrat, has returned to his beautiful residence in Wilton and engaged in the personal superintendence of his valuable tarra. On retiring from office, his associates, some twenty-five in number, presented him an elegant gold-headed canc, appropriately engraved, in token of their es teem. The cost value of the present is abou t fifty dollars.—Farmington Chronicle. General Butler and his Apple.—The Nation, a week ago, commenting upon the sin gular demonstration which greeted General Butler in the Park at New York, a few days before the election, remarked that though liis coolness was commendable, in eating an apple thrown at him by an unfriendly audience, the taste of the act was questionable inasmuch as the fruit was taken by a dirty hand from a dir ty pocket. Unwilling to rest under this impu tation, the general aodessed to the Nation the following laconic note: “ To the Editor of the Notion: ‘ I pared that apple. Do you ever eat apples or eggs without paring? “Fastidiously yours, “Benj. F. Butler. “LowELt, Nov. 12,1916.” The editor addressed is relieved to find that General Butler has not been guilty of so horri ble an action, and gratefully says that he “nev “er supposed it was more than an inadvertence “into which the general fell in the heat of de bate.” ___ Queen Victoria Kbplies to a Suitor.— Soon after the death of Prince Albert, the Em peror Theodorns of Abyssinia hearing of that melancholy event, and moved probably by sym pathy for the unfortunate widow,sent to Queen Victoria a formal proposal of marriage. The offer was treated with silent contempt. His sa ble Majesty, after waiting some time, came to the conclusion that he was intentionally insult ed, and, out of revenge, seised the principal En glishmen then within his dominions. By the latest accounts there is reason to fear that all the prisoners, as well as the envoy sent out to their succor, have been put to death. Queen Victoria has at length been indneed to dispatch an autograph letter to her savage suitor, in the hope of securing the release of her subjects, it they are not already released by death. VAKIKTIKft. —How many times thirty-six stars did Pres ident Johnson scatter among uproarious crowds during his prolonged frolic out West? It is altogether probable that tho failure of tin star shower last week is due to Mr. Johnson’s lavish distribution of the sparklers. There wrre not enough left for the November exhibi tion. -The following advertisement appeared re cently in the New Orleans papers: ^-Members of the above orgauiza ■'t the Old r'Hy l*'' re<® *° reI‘"rt themselves at the 01(1 Headquarters, over the A~e bar A«,!luri"s th# neit *'*5*5?

The child was at play upon the doorsteps of a neighbor when a man threatened to shat it up in a dark, room. This so frightened the little fellow that he ran into hts moth* r and fell into paroxysms on the floor. It sickened from the fright and never recovered, and when dying said, “Papa, don’t let me die. I will never go on the steps again.” —By iar the best toast given at the dinner in New York last week in honor of Cyrus Field was this: TbeOitu of New York— the front door oi the New World—whose bell pull is now on the cliffs of Valentia. —The Milwaukee News, the leading demo cratic paper of Wisconsin, wishes it under stood tiiat It is not opposed to the exercise of the privilege of voting by negroes, or any other class of person i, because of color, race or sex, and that it “recognises no qualification of that privilege as proper or just, except the qualifica tion of honesty, loyalty and intelligence. It is opposed, however, to the policy of compelling the Southern States to adopt negro suffrage as a condition of admitting their representatives in Congress." —A correspondent of the New York Times says it is “a very pleasant diversion” in travel ling through the Sonth, to visit the Yankee school ma’ams. “If you see a tall one with a fresh ruddy complexion, solid square-built form, and one or two curls hanging down from her light brown hair, with a moderate sized waterfall, you may bet your exigence she is from the State of Maine. Little, natty girls, with looped-up skirts and fashionable outfit generally, are from Massachusetts. With rare exceptions they are all from New England, and they are the bitterest, most uncompromising Radicals imaginable.” The Chief .Justice and the President.— The Boston Advertiser’s special Washington correspondent telegraphs to this paper as fol lows: All the published stories aboutconsultations between Chief Justice Chase and President Johnson in relation to general amnesty and impartial suffrage as a political compromise, misrepresent the facts. Mr. Chose lias, from time to time, as occasion offered, given tho President bio views upon public questions.— At the beginning of Mr. Johns..**’* eaw janiicc chase earnestly advised him to recog nize no distinction ot color between citizens in the rebellious States. Previous to tiio last session of Congress,'he advised Mr. Johnson to submit all his measures to Congress lor its decision. Mr. Chase has recently had two in terviews with the President The first of these was concerning judicial matters, and had no connection witli a subsequent informal meet ing of Cabinet ministers. At the second in terview, by appointment for that purpose, he was asked and gave his opinions upon the questions before the country, earnestly advis ing the President to recommend the adoption of the amendment of the Constitution as a just basis of settlement, or, if lie was nut pre pared for that, to take ground in favor of sub stituting for the second anil third sections of the amendment universal amnesty anil impar tial suffrage. Iho counsels of ilie Chief Jus tice have not heretofore lieen followed, and there arc no indications that they will be this time. In fact, Mr. Johnson yesterday express ed emphatically his determination to abide by his position. Some of liis chief advisers, how ever, are trying to move him, aided by leading Democratic politicians from both sections, Clement C. fciay being one of tho most active among the Southerners. They say that, total ly defeated on the political issue before the people, they have nothing to do but accept the situation, and, if possible, get some compro mise for the more obnoxious portion of tbe amendment. But Mr. Johnson declares to all who advise him that he does not regard the results of the elections as indicating the real sentiments of tho people; that they were car ried away by excitement and will yet reverse their decision. George HI, and the Barclays.—The ori gin of Messrs, Barclay & Co., whose founders were linen drapers in Chenpside, is rife with in terest. It is related that ou Lord Mayor's day, 17(10, George IH. made a slate visit to the City. There was, for political causes, some Irritation among tho people, and much tumult in the great thoroughlare between St. Paul's and the Bank, so that nno of the horses in the Koyal carriage became restive, and the King and Queen were in apparent danger. In this emer gency David Barclay (a Quaker) rushed to the rescue, aud, uddrossing the King, said: “Wilt tliee alight, George, und thy wife Charlotte, and come into my house and see the Lord May or’s show?” The King, with many of his fam ily, like Nicholas, the late Ku.pcror of all the Kussias, had a profound respect tor the Society of Friends: he accepted the invitation of the draper, and went up to the first floor. The cavalcade having passed, the Quaker went through the ceremony of introduction, which, although opposed to formalities in general, Da vid Barclay on the occasion minutely perform ed. “ King of England, Priscilla Barclay, my wife—Priscilla, my wife, George, King of Eng land,” &c. On taking his leave the King most courteously invited the Quaker to visit him at the Palace of St. James's. At the next levee David Barclay went to Court with his son John. When the King saw them, he threw aside the restraint of etiquette, and gave Da vid a hearty shake of the hand. One ol the King’s inquiries to David was. “What do you iutend to do with your son John? Let niui come hero and I will find him good and profit able employment” This offer was, however, civilly, and perhaps wisely declined. The de scendants of David Barclay subsequently be came great brewers as well as bankers, and founded the world-renowned firm of Barclay aud Perkins. The two great banking and brewing firms are at the present time compos ed almost entirely of the descendants of the liuondraper of Cheapside who entertained George HI.—Fcarn’s Money Market. The Water of Orkat Salt Lace.—All travellers havo mentioned with astonishment tho peculiar buoancy of the water of Oreat Salt Lake, and it is truly surprising. No dan §cr of shipwreck need ever cross the mind of lose who navigate the lake, for ft would bo simply impossible for them to sink if thrown everboard. With my hands elapsed together under my head and my feet crossed, I floated . on the very surface or the lake with at least one third of my body above the water. Upon a warm summer’s day there would not be the slightest difficulty in going to sleep upon the lake, and allowing yonrself to be blown about as the wind permitted; only one would need an umbrella to keep off the rays of the sun.— Mr. Bowles has stated that three buckets of till* water would yield one bucket of solid salt, but inasmuch as water will not hold above twenty flve per cent, saline water in solution, and if more he added it is instautly deposited upon the bottom, his estimate is, of course, too large. On inquiring of the Mormons en gaged in pro curing salt, they unanimously stated that for every five buckets of water they obtained ona bucket of salt, which gives the proportion as no less than twenty per cent. No visitor to the lake should omit the bath; the sensation in the water is most’InSWIsous, and loads one to think himself !hsuing in the air. On the way back to (he cite, it frill he as well for the bather to stop at the superb sulphur baths jnst outside the town, and remove the saline incrustations which will have formed upon him, by a plunge into tho fine swimming bath, whose only ob jection is its peculiar odor and great heat, which requires a large ad mixture of cold wat er.— C'or. Buxton Advertiser, “Policemen and Pistols.”—I do not enter tain the idoo that policemen in this part of tho country would ever be inclined or permitted to go to such extreme of violence as the police of New Orleans did. What I wrote was “some dangerous and shocking extreme”—not “the same.” V.
