T P E PKESS. luesdaj Morning. Msrch 19, 1867. Temperance^ Re not deceived. We are to have the whole question re-openeil. The champions of prohi bition, believing In their own infallibility, are assuming to be wiser and more conscientious than other people; and most of them are resort ing to the old arguments of misrepresentation, exaggeration and downright slander. Already they rank men who sell sound, wholesome liquors with the keepers of bawdy bouses, thieves, burglars and murderers, and a* listened to patiently. Some of the best men to he found in society, clergymen, lawyers, chemists, physicians,judges, police officers, and the mayors of large cities are classed with “rum mies," because they are in favor of a license law. Is not this shameful—pitiful—and sure to react against them before long? Some people seem to have a notion that late, enforced by heavy penalties, confiscation, im prisonment, or if need be hanging, is a sure remedy for any evil, if tho ministers of law are faithful. There cannot be a greater delusion. Such laws repeal themselves, or die of sheer in anition. Ihe moment a penalty is thought disproportloned, or ill-adapted to the offence, men are unwilling to prosecute, witnesses re fuse to testify or perjure themselves, and juries will not convict. And then what becomes of tho law? and what of the evil? In all the larger cities of Europe, after ages of experience, they license brothels. Why? To encourago licentiousness? No indeed, but to restraiii it, to protect their wives and daugh ters from outrage, and the whole community from disease and death. Men will drink, as they will eat; and no hu man legislation ever did, or ever can avail to stop drinking, though it may restrain it. The appetite for intoxicating beverages is a natural appetite, as much as that for roast mutton or beef, or venison or turkeys. Men ruin their families by indulging their appetites. Will you cure them by prohibition? Tlave not sumptuary laws been established everywhere? And everywhere without advantage to the State. How would you, the friends of prohibi tion, like to have roast beef, and gold watches and majiogany furniture, and costly broad cloth. and velvet and silks and laces, prohibit ed, because the example may be injurious to others who cannot afford such indulgences, or 1 realise what you may call extravagance leads to poverty and crime? Ask yourselves, and then ask youy neighbors. Mr. Huntingdon says that, by prohibition, he has no idea that the sale of liquor can be stop ped—but that the use of it, as a beverage may be stopped. I do not give his words, not hav ing been able to refer to them. But how on earth can you stop the use of liquor as a bever age, with thousands of miles along our frontier unguarded by sea and land, and people hurry ing hither and thither in all diieetions with trunks and parcels, which are never meddled with by police officers or custom-house officers? Not long ago, young men would club together and take a room for “mutual improvement" in singing, reading,declamation and card play ing. They would supply themselves with liquor, and keep it always within reach. Others went about selling religious books made of tin and containing sometimes a quart of brandy. Oth ers had hollow canes and artifical eggs and both containing liquor for sale; and thousands drank, not so much because they loved liquor, as to show that lawgivers and zealots were eas ily outwitted. Shall we have such things re peated ? Go on with your prohibition and con fiscations, and what shall hinder, since men tctll drink, and cannot be prevented by legisla ti°n? John Neal. Tiercc at Sncenrappn. Brief allusion has already been made to the Levee held in Saccarappa on Tuesday evening last, for the benefit of the Methodist Society in that village. Handbills announced that if the weather should be unpleasant, the levee would be post poned. The weather proved unpleasant, but the storm was so light and came so late, that the managers, of whom was the notable “Bish op B.," deemed it advisable to go forward.— Many persons were kept away byreason of the notice; but so great was the interest in the af fair that despite the weather, the hall was crowded. On entering the hall and beholding among the crowd the solemn face of the high sheriff of the county, and the determined look of the chief marshal of the city, it seemed morally certain ibere was to bo an execution, although we were assured that not a single drop would be allowed at the scene, notwithstanding that arrangements were already in progress for the adjusting of a peculiar knot. Extending our vision, wo discovered in the distanoe not exactly a black sm'th, albeit he trains in the company of “blacks,” doubtless pray-iug for deliverance from the hall, and threatening to lean(e)it on account of the jam, unless he could receive the foster-ing care of thoBe whose peculiar privilege it is to furnish the valentines. But he should have remem bered that birds of a feather Will flock togeth er, and been prepared for the worst. Among the attractions of the evening was singing by a quartette club, who were dress ed in the costume of the old Continentals.— Mrs. L. W. Edwards presided at the piano. Of the music it is cnly necessary to name tie pianist, and to say that the club was composed of Messrs. Merrill, Mariner, l’hinney and Bnow. A farmer’s kitchen of ancient days was fine ly represented; and the transactions of that department were equally amusing and sugges tive. The spinning-wheel, the churn, and the washtub were admirably displayed and man aged to a t. Mrs J., Mrs. C. and Mrs. M. are surely adepts. “Act well your part, there all the honor lies,” was pleasantly illustrated by Uncle Joy, who in his devotions is ever accus tomed to neal. there was a wedding, too; and such a wed ding! Joyous and hilarious as was the ceremo ny, there was a bell-e towle-d, hut in a manner so phinnney-cal as to relieve the affair of all gloom. Moving around the hall prior to the ceremony, bearing an enormous roll through whose ample lolds 'only a sin gle ray [m—d] could penetrate, might be seen a whig of “ye olden time.” Fortunately a certain mill was hard by, otherwise wrappers would surely have failed. The presiding geni us of the corporation might well question, as he did,by implication, the appearance of the certificate of intentions after furnishing mater ial wherewith so completely to bury it. And now comes Elder Cilly, direct from the “receipt of customs”—a hardshell from the far West—to perform the nuptials. In the ab sence of Elder Macomher of Indiana, he had already delivered before the audience a dis course on his favorite tex: “And he played on a harp of a thousand strings.” We are not permitted to give even an abstrac of the ser mon, lest possibly a copyright b« infringed, or we anticipate its repetition elsewhere, with emendations and alterations to suit occasions. But we would kindly hint (hat genuine wit and apt allusions and admirable take offs, in which the discourse largely abounded, lose niUth ol theirrelish when coupled with passag es of scripture in a way (not intended certain ly ) to bring the sacred writings into ridicule.— The careful avoidance of that connection would leave a sweeter fragrance to all the rest. The cer emony proceeded, the knot was firmly tied, the usual advice and the custom-ary salutation were given, the spouse being required to render only reasonable obedience, and the curtain dropped But the best of the whole “in a sense,” and to which all the rest was but a prelude, was what followed an earnest and appropriate ap peal by Kev. Mr. Pottle, the excellent pastor of the Methodist church. It can be told in a few words,and is a delightful commentary upon the generosity of the citizens and of friends from Portland, Gorham and .elsewhere, namely —that what with the proceeds of the levee proper, and subscriptions paid or pledged on the spot, the amount realised from the Fair was about nine hundred dollars! A Uentle Wife. In the police Conrt at Chicago recently, a wife thus ingeniously explained away some very serious el,urges of harsh treatment of her unfortunate husband: One day, when she was running across *i,» room, with a fork in tier hand, be jumped‘to her way and struck his wrist against the loth wrenching it from her grip by the tines, which he ran into his wrist. Then he undertook to Strike her, but she held up a pan of hot dish water between them, and spilt it all over his head. Then he got still more angry at this ac cident and started to jump at her; but his head came against her hand, and he fen down. She took hold of his hair to help him up, and the hair was moistened by the hot water so that it came off. Then she saw that it was no use to reason with him any longer, and she left the house. A gentleman, who had by a fall broken one of his ribs, was mentioning the circum stance and describing the pain he felt. A sur geon, who was present, asked him if the injury he sustained was near the vertebrai? “No, sir,” replied he, “it was within a fey, yards of the court house/ —One of Josh Billings’ maxims—'“Ri*e ar]y work hard and late, live on what you can’t sell’ give nothing awa, and if yu don’t die ritch, and (to to the devil, yu may mm me for damage’s," Original and Select®*!* _First page—British Colonial Matters, Con ditions of liebel Submission.

Now it contains more than 200,000 population. —The story that the House committee on public expenditures will report in favor of the impeachment of Mr. Smythe, the New York collector, is denied by its chairman. It is un derstood that they will report a concurrent resolution calling on the President in the name of the people to remove Smythe. —The Chronicle authoritatively denies the report, in general circulation for the last month or so, that Mr. Sumner will retire to private life at the close of his present term in the Sen ate. —It is said the late Alexandria election is to be used as a means of testing the military re construction bill of the last session. The case is being mado up very carefully and will bo pushed up to the Supremo Court as soon as possible. —The House judiciary committee, it is said are considering the propriety of reporting a bill providing that all congressional elections in the United States shall be held on the Tuesday next after the the first Monday in November, 1808, and on a corresponding day jn every sec ond year thereafter.

Lewis Barker, Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, has gone to Connec ticut, to take the stump. —The Gardiner Journal tells a story of a man in Farmingdale who got so far ahead of time that on Sunday morning last he started his boys into the woods chopping wood, loaded his team with potatoes, took his saws to have filed and came into the religious city o f Gardi ner to market. On arriving there and driving up to a store to trade he found it closed, and remarked to a passer by that he supposed^ Mr. -had gone to breakfast, and was astonish ed with the reply that he had probably gone to church. The poor man immediately wend ed his way homeward. —The Whig learns that the new collector of the port of Bangor, Hon. John H.

The former is the successful stump speaker and wit, the latter the favorite poet and wit. The former is stout and full, the latter lean and thin. The thin man, David, was introduced to a stranger who remarked, “you are much smaller than your brother Lew is.” “Yes,” replied the poet, “but take the wind out of ’Lew’ and he would be no bigger than I am.” He would not spoil a joke for re lation’s sake. —The Waterviile Mail has seen in that town, four oxen, the united weight of which was 8100 lbs. They were the property of Mr. Ama sa Shores, of that place. One pair, Durhams, 4 years old, weighed 3900 lbs. and the other pair, 5 years old, weighed 4200; the latter pair were twins. New Pablicmliena. Religious Poems.—By Harriet Beecher Rtowe. Illustrated. Boston: Ticknor & Fields. In an elegantly printed volume of something over one hundred pages, Mrs. Stowe has col lected about thirty short poems, nearly all of which have more or less of a religions charac ter. In point of poetic and literary merit they are very unequal, a part being in the wri ter's best and most thoughtful vein, and others greatly below the average of what comes from her pen. The opening poem, “Saint Catherine borne by Angels,” is one of the best in the vol ume, and the lines headed “Only a Year,”— printed on our fourth page to-day—will speak touchingly to many a heart. Another which we find particularly pleasing is entitled “Sum mer Studies.” The wood-cut illustrating it is one of the best in the volume. The external appearance of the book is most attractive. %he paper and printing are nearly perfect; the il lustrations, like the poems, are extremely un equal in merit. For sale by Davis Brothers. Famous Americans of Recent Times. By James Barton, author of “Life of Andrew Jackson,” “Life aud Times of Aaron Burr,” etc. Boston: Ticknor & Fields. The contents of this volume are not new — They consist ot papers contributed, at various times during the past four or five years, to the pages of tho North American Review, the At lantic Monthly, and other periodicals, and near ly all of them attracted very general attention at the time of their publication. The article on Daniel Webster, from the last number of the Ncrth American, has scarcely yet ceased to excite comment, which has been particularly animated in those regions where the lingering effects ot the Great Expounder’s wonderful personal influence are still felt. And though opinions may vary in regard to the correct ness in some points of Mr. Barton’s portrait of Webster, it must he admitted that his article is an admirable specimen of this kind of writing. It exhibits not only much skill in the analysis of character, and an acute judgment in esti mating its moulding influences, but also in a very eminent degree the writer’s happy facul ty of presenting the results of his examination in a taking and popular manner. The paper on John Randolph, published in the same periodical some time last year, is an other fine example of Mr. Barton’s best man ner. The other essays in the volume are on Henry Clay; John C. Calhoun; Stephen Girard and his College; James Gordon Bennett and the New York Herald; Charles Goodyear; Henry Ward Beecher and his Church; Commodore Vanderbilt; Theodosia Burr, and John Jacob Astor. The whole are comprised in a very handsome octavo of some five huudred pages, finely printed and bound and embellished witli an engraved portrait of Calhoun. It is for sale by Davis Brothers.

Adjourned. Products of the Citt Farm.—In looking over the Report of the Overseers of the Poor< (made to the City Council a few evenings since,) we were struck with the productive ness of the city farm and tho adjuncts; and as we presume our citizens In the main are un acquainted with the results of this source of revenue, we take the liberty, lor their infor mation, to transcribe a list of the products of last year, as follows: 20,094 lbs pork, $3,014; 1470lbs butter, $.198; 5000 gallons of milk, $85; 80 tons English hay, $1000 ; 8 tons 2d crop, $90; 4 tons salt hay, $40; 3 tons barley straw, $45; 24 bushels barley, $24; 750 bushels potatoes, $450 ; 4000 heads cabbage, $200 ; 8 bushels of onions, $4; 4000 lbs squash, $00; 900 pump kins, $27; 17 tons carrots,$255 ; 40 bushels of beets, $20; 200 bushels turnips, 100; 12 bushels parsnips, $12. Also, sales of calf-skins, cow hides, vegetables not enumerated above, $288, 09; amounting in all to $0,908.09. This favorable result has been brought about under' the careful management of Mr. Sampson, (the master of the House) in co-op eration with the efficient farming committee of the Overseers of the Poor, by their using all the artificial means available, with the labor of the able-bodied male paupers in the House, to swell the products as largely as possible. Cite Hotel.—It gives us pleasure to an nounce that Messrs. John P. Davis & Co., landlords of the City Hotel, havo abolished their bar, and hereafter no intoxicating drinks will he sold in that house, and it will be kept as a first class hotel. The house is large, spa cious and airy, and under the present proprie tors it has become a popular place of resort for strangers. The tables are always supplied with the best of viands and all the luxuries the markets afford, while the neatness, cleanliness and convenience of the sleeping apartments cannot be exceeded. It becomes the temperance portion of the community to liberally patronize this hotel, and unless they are false to thoir professions and pledges, they will so do. The complaiut has been universal in this city that a first-class temperance hotel cannot be sustained—that temperance men prefer to go where intoxicat ing liquois are sold, rather thau patronize one where they are not. Here is an opportunity to try the question upon its merits, and let us now see if such be the fact. A Kemarkable Case in Life Insurance. Mr. John 11. Daus, depot master at Lewiston, made an application lor a $2000 life insurance policy in the New England Mutual Life Insur ance Company of Boston, through their Gen eral Agents, toward the last of December. The policy was forwarded to him on the 1st of Jan uary, 1807. Mr. Daus died on the 2d of Jauu ary, While his policy was in the Post Office. Messrs. Kufus Small & Son., General Agents of the above Company, at Biddeford, Me., re cited on til* 10th inst. a check for $2000 to pay the widow of Mr. Daus. Sales or Keal Estate.—The lot of land on the corner of Smith and Congress streets, con taining 5720 square feet, with a barn and unfin ished dwelling house thereon, belonging to the estate of the late Charles E. Beckett, was sold at auction on Saturday, by Henry Bailey & Son, to L. D. Cole, for $50 over the incum brances, which were $5151. The lot on the corner of franklin and Congress, and the one on Vaughan streets were withdrawn. B. Stevens, Jr., has bought the house of Thomas T, Sawyer, 48 Danforth street, for &7«oo, St. Patrick's Supper.- The anniversary o1 the Patron Saint of Ireland was celebrated last evening in good style by our worthy charita ble society, the Irish American Belief Associa tion, at their new liali in Mr. Charles McCar thy’s building, on Fore street. During the day the natioual flag of Ireland floated side by side with the btar Spangled Banner, from the hall. At nine o’clock a goodly number of the mem bers, with their ladies, assembled in the rooms below aud marched up to the ball, which was very handsomely decorated with flags, bunt ing, paintings of St. Patrick, Emmet,0’Connell> Washington, the prominent Generals of our army, etc., including the green banner of the Association—the only article rescued from the great lire. Five long tables, with one at ihe head, were spread with all the delicacies of the_ season, and in his usual handsome style, by Mr. J. Partington, caterer for the occasion. The company was called to order by Mr. Tbos. Parker, President of the Association, and after a full discussion of the viands, Mr. M. H. Hed dy was cal led upon to act as toast-master. The sentiments —“Theday we celebrate, the Land of our Nativity, the Land of Our Adoption, the Daughters of Erin, the Memory of Washington and Emmet, the Ladies, and the Press,” were severally responded to in a very eloquent man ner by President Parker, Mr. James Cunning ham, Vice President, J. J. Maybury, Esq., Mr. Charles McCarthy, Mr. H. Dolan, Mr. Carr, aud a representative of the Press. The speeches were eloquent, enthusiastic and hopeful for the cause ot Ireland. Several songs were sung by gentlemen of the society, such as “Erin go Bragh,” “The Wearing of the Green,” “The Harp that once in Tara’s Hall,” etc. Chandler, with his Quadrille Band, was present, and in terspersed the speeches with the sweet and ex citing music of Ireland. After the tables were removed the young gentlemen and ladies occu' pied the hall in “tripping the light fantastic toe” for several hours. Altogether, it was an occasion of much happiness and success to the members, and was highly creditable to all con cerned. The Songs of Scotland.—Not all the in evitable disagreeables and annoyances of Doering Hall were sufficient last night to pre vent a large and fashionable audience attend ing on the first of Mr. Kennedy’s vocal enter tainments illustrating the songs and legends of Scotland. Certainly, the entertainment de served a large house, for it was one of the most charming which we have enjoyed for a long time. Mr. Kennedy possesses a rare com bination of talents. He has a voice of much sweetness and of unusual compass, a rich, mel low tenor which is capable of the softest and most melting notes of pathos at one moment, and at the next has the ring of a clarion call ing to battle. He is an admirable mimic, and a capital raconteur, and being as Scotch as old Scotland, he gives to all his stories, his ballads and his dialogues a true Scotch fiavor. It is difficult to tell whether he is most at homo in the graver portion of his entertainment, or in that which is gayer. His recitations of portions of the Nodes were admirable ; and in his songs ho rendered the hopeless sorrow of “Auld It obi n Gray,” the spirit and dash of “Young Lochinvar,” the comic archness of “Duncan Gray,” and the liery—patriotism of “Scots wha ha’e wi’ Wallace bled,” with almost equal beauty and truth. The spirited Jacobite song, “Bonnie Prince Charlie,” was also admirably given.— No one who loves—and what person of taste does not love!—the beautiful songs and ballads of the land of Burns, should fail to witness this entertainment. The programme for this evening contains the best features of that of last night, with some additional attractions. We bespeak for it an audience even larger than the first. We should not omit to mention the graceful and close accompaniments played by Miss Kennedy. Her performance is surprising in one so young. Portraits.—We iave seen some specimens of a new invention in the art of printing in oil color-', which will doubtless find favor. They are portraits of various distinguished person ages, Lincoln, Grant, McClellan, Johnson, and others, printed partly in oi s and partly in the usual manner, with inks serving to bring out the features very distinctly. Mr. T. J. Lowell is.canvassing agent for these pictures for the city and country. Detention of Trains.—In consequence of a freight train getting off the track on the Portland & Kennebec road yesterday, the pas senger trains, both ways, were detained. That due here at 2 o’clock did not arrive until half past four o’clock. Accepted.—We learn that Lewis M. Smith, Esq., has accepted the position of Assistant Engineer of the Fire Department, and taken and subscribed the oaths of office. T he MBKMBchiisftts Liquor InveNtigntion The friends of prohibition are now being heard before the legislative committee of Mass., in opposition to the movement for a licence law. Below we give the gist ol the testimony given at scveal sessions of the committee: Rev. Mr. Dennison, city missionary of New Bedford, stated that the temperance cause was in a better condition than 2(i years ago. The statistics of arrests show that tho amount of drunkeness has decreased in the city. The witness was strongly in favor of a prohibitory law. Judge Pitman of New Bedford asserted that a license system will not check the sale,—that had not been the effect where such laws have been tried. He said that if a majority of the people did not wish an enforcement of the pro hibitory law it would not be enforced. In New Bedford, the prohibitory law has cheeked and almost entirely prohibited the open sale. He would prefer to see the license law enacted rather than that the present statutes should be persistently nullified; but he believed in the competency of tho State to enforce the law against liquor dealers. Hon. Oliver Ames of Easton stated that lie was in fevor of the prohibitory law, which had done much good in that town. The drunken ness among the foreign clement of the town bad not diminished. Lieut. Gov. Trask of Springfield believed tlierl was no troublo in enforcing the prohibi tory law. For the last eleven years with two exceptions, there have been no efforts by the city government to enforce the law. On the cross-examination, the witness declared that the people of Springfield, for nine ycars,'elect cd city governments that acted as he had de scribed, and such was the condition of things there now. Hon. Nebemiah Boynton of Chelsea stated that his convictions and impressions were against a license law, because it would increase the sale of liquor, drunkeness and crime. Wit ness thought that the liquor dealers were con tributing largely to break down the prohibito ry law. He saw considerable intoxication in the streets, about the same as formerly. Rev. Charles Cleveland, city missionary for 33 years, gave his experience with the poor of Boston in relation to the cause of temperance. He referred to the license law, as he had seen its operation, and characterized the system as rotten. Hon. Amasa Walker of North Brookfield, was not in favor of the law when enacted, but stated that it should be sustained, as it look the citidel of intemperance b.\ storm. He be lieved it was a good law and popular. A ma jority of the voters were lor it, and of the peo ple, women and children, nine out of ten la vored the enactment. Rev. Jacob M. Manning (of the Old South Church) said he had been a constant laborer in the cause of temperance. Mr. Manning ob served that lie was not one who never dined at any of ouv hotels. He frequently dined at the Parker House, and Young’s Hotel, and was generally well served. He was opposed to li censing private dealers, but did not believe it was a sin to drink a glass of wine under all circumstances. The witness observed that it was his impression more intemperance ex isted than formerly, which he accounted for by the intense excitement of the war, and the consequent reaction. Alluding to the witness es for the petitioners, he said some of them have been faithful to temperance, and mean to he so. The Trinitarian elorgv are overwhelm tngiy opposeu to a license law. someimng has been said of the weight ot mind in the Com monwealth lor licensing. The witness declar ed much of it must be dead weight. He knew ot men opposed to the prohibition who were as true to the Master and temperance as he was. But they arc mistaken. Hon.Josiah Peabody, Mayor of Lowell, in 181(4 and 18fi.i, averred that much of the failure to enforce the law arose from the reluctance of t e police, who were amenable to the Mayor and Aldermen. ilev. Mr. dale, Unitarian clergyman of Lee, stated that there had been no open sales of liq uor in that town for many years. He should consider the adoption of a license system a cal amity. In the course of his examination he stated that he could not say whether a minori ty of Lee would vote for license or not, it the question should be put to them. ltev. Ur. Todd, pastor of the First church in Pittsfield, was allowed to testify for the peti tioners in accordance with an agreement pre viously made. He stated that he hail been forty years an advocate of total abstinence, and had brought up seven children, who had never par taken of any wines or spirituous liquors, ex cept at the sacrament. He said the present generation ilia not understand the temperance reform, which ho described from the earliest time. He asserted that the church and pulpit labored in the temperance cause until the law took the matter out of their hands, which de prived them of moral power. Alcohol, opium, tobacco, arc resorted to by per: ons to relieve some of the distresses of hu man nature. Alcohol is now prescribed by physicians to a ten-fold greater degree than formerly, and under these circumstances he did not believe the sale could be suppressed, but had better be regulated. We are not so well off in Pittsfield now as when the law first started. On the cross-examination. I>r. Todd said that he had preached a total abstinence discourse within four weeks, and his people did not know that he was opposed to the law, which he considered a failure.
