There was no evidence in the case of the Por tuguese sailor brought before IT. S. Commiss- I loner Clifford, yesterday, to sustain the allega tiou of mutiny, so he was discharged. Harris, Atwood & Co., of this city, have b It a steamer to be used in the porgy oil t de, and a new barkentino owned by Curtis , D wis and others of this city, was launched at Dumariscotta yesterday. “Old Probabilities” appears to have decided upon giving a benefit to tbe Hospital Fair. A drifting boat containing a coat and a basket of provisions, picked up off Ram Island Ledge caused it to be feared that some one was drowned. Tbe fear was allayed by tbe dis covcry that the boat bad breken from its fas tenings while tbe owner was on shore. Hon. L. D. M. Sweat and wife sailed from Quebec in the Polynesian, Saturday. The ya.-ht “Alarm” sailed for Marblehead last evening to take part in the annual excur sion of the Eastern Yacht Club, which comes off Wednesday. A large number of physicians arrived last night to take part in the proceedings of the Maine Medical Association, which begins its annual session in this city to-day. A girl employed in Orin Hawkes’ tailoring establishment was taken with a succession of fainting fits yesterday morning and had to be carried to her home. Two lunatics got loose in Market Square last evening and began reciting verses and selling catarrh cure. Cullen, tbe man who was stabbed at Nelson Leighton’s bagnio some time siace, has so far recovered as to be able to walk out. A man on Smith’s wharf was suddenly at tacked with hemorrhage yesterday morning, an! it was at first feared that he had ruptured a large blood vessel. Twenty five gamblers arrived on one train yesterday. Should there happen to be a large number of fools in the city to-day—larger than usual we mean—these sporting characters wiil re in a rlcu Tjarvest. Some exci«>tni*nt and much merriment was caisedon Market street about seven o’clock la ;t evening by the appearance of a man wear in ; only * shirt. He was drunk and was in charge of officers Garland and Horr. A young man employed in a planing mill on Commercial street, was -atruck on the shoulder by a falling plank, yesterday, and severely in j n ied. Officers Rich and Gribbin brought into the police station yesterday a well-known Cape Elizabeth man who had lost his watch and pocket-book. He was too drank to give any information regarding the loss. Mr. Win. Catlin of London, speaks in Mar ket Square this evening at 6 o'clock. Mrs. Pat Ward and brother were arrested on North street yesterday by Deputy Bridges and officer Jackson, for playing ball with a hatchet which they playfully tossed at the heads of each other. The City Marshal found a den of misery near the junction of Commercial and High streets, yesterdoy, where tbe father and mother lay half naked and whole drunk across the bed with a babe six months oid, who had not tasted food for the day, between them. It is describ ed as the dirtiest bole in America. An elegant frosted wedding cake of huge di mensions, has been prepared by Webstei as a gift to the Hospital Fair. The loaf reflects much credit upon Mr. Webster’s artistic and culinary skill. The happy couple who get the cake will have enough to distribute among the largest circle of friends they can possibly pos sess. Citizens ought to know better than to flock to the engine houses at an alarm of lire and th is impede the firemen in their duties. This w is done Sunday night, and the delay caused thereby might have resulted seriously had the fi e been a large one. The fools are not all d ad yet. A large number of horsemen arrived in town la t night to attend the June meeting at Forest C ty Park. The Portland Cadets had an clectiou of of ficers last evening, which resulted as follows: Neal IX Winslow, Captain; Henry A. Merrill, 1st Lieutenant; John D. Osgood, 2d Lieuten ant.

He iias won golden opinions while with us, and our citizens will regret his departure. Capt. Mayo wil! be i succeeded by Commander Weld N. Allen.— ! Commander Allen is a native of Alfred, and a son of tbe late Judge William C. Allen. He is au officer who has a notable war record, having been wounded in tbe attack on Fort Fisher, and will make au able and courteous bead for tbe department. The Marginal Way.—We learn that Mr. John A Stimson of Alfred has taken tbe con tract for tbe earth work on the marginal way, and has associated with himself Mr. Levi H. Straw of Bostou. The track is now being laid and tbe pile work fast progressing, so that in two weeks Mr. Stimson will be able to place bis cars on the rails aud begin filling in the earth. Under his superinteudeucy wo expect to see the much-needed work rapidly approach com pletion. The contract was signed yesterday. Strife by the Sad Sea Waves.—The title of a tract of 280 acres on Pilie Point near Little River, is contested. One of the contestants re cently built a house thereon, \vhich the other tore down. Another frame was put up, and Satun ay night that was pulled down, l lie house builder purposes erecting another and the house destroyer purposes demolishing it.

Mr. Corwin, for the government, filed a mo tion requiring tbe arbitrators to file in court the evidence, particularly that of Admiral Porter and Bailey, and also enquiring whether the steamer McRea, having been built and used by the United States from whon- she was taken, should be included among the vessels captured or destroyed. Tbe motion was overruled and tbe award of the arbitrators affirmed. In the District Court to-day tbe case of Col lins against the Florida prize case, was argued on a motion to dismiss tbe libel filed by tbe government on the ground that tho seizuie hav ing taken place in a Brazilian pori, was illegal.

New York, June 9—A letter from Walla Walla, Washington Territory, of the 20tb ult., states that siuce the Modoc'affuir the Indians iu that vicinity have beeu quite impertinent. A nar'y of five recently attacked an old settler, who repulsed them, aided materially by a daugh ter of eighteen, who wielded r hatchet with ter rible effect, and a young son. All five of the Indians were badly wounded aud fled. The event had a salutary effect. Some 1500 Indians are ou Snake river procuring winter supplies of salmon, and are peaceably inclined. Al1 fears now of an Indian war have passed away. Tbe recent earthquakes have greatly scared tbe In diaus. A Mau Accidentally (Shot by an Officer. Dubuque, June 9.—At Fort Dodge, Iowa, Saturday night, in attempting to arrest Charles Haines, a saloon keeper, for selling liquor con trary to the ordinance, a riot ensued.

An Expedition into Or. gon. Bo\le Camp. June 9.—Gen. Divis proposes to have cavalry, light battery of the fourth ar tnlery and infantry, and inarch through Kla math county to Forts Waruer and Harvey, and as lar north as Walla Walla for the purpose of intimidating the Indiana. Preliminary orders for this movement have already been issued. Reports from the Red Cloud agency stale that Blue Horse, High Wolie, Slow Bull and Red Leaf were friendly and doing all they could to preserve peace. THE MODOCS. Testimony Against Ilic Murderers. San Francisco, June 8.—Despatches are re ceived at Yreka this morning from Po.vle’s Camp on Tale Lake Peninsular, dated the 28th. as follows: Soon after the arrival of the Modoc prisoners at this comp, Gen. Davis sent word to the set tlers m Tules Lake and Long River counties that he desired them to come in and identif y the murderers in custody and the stolen property recovered from the Indians. Among those who responded were Mrs. Boody and daughter, Mrs. Schiera, two of the women who were widowed by the Modocs. They teil the following story. Boody and Schiera took up three quarters sec tions of land near the mouth of the Lost Iliver last August, and settled there with their fami lies. On the morning of November 29th, Capt. Jack’s baud of Indians were attacked on Lost Iliver by a party of volunteers and compelled to retire. Hooker Jim and his party of Modocs were on the north sido of the .river from Capt, Jack, but knew of the latter’s defeat, and dur ing the same day, Boody and Schiera were murdered by Hooker Jim and his associates while they were cutting wood and herding sheep within a mile of their house and utterly unconscious of danger. The agent ot the Yarnox reservation had promised the settlers that any offensive move ment against the Italians should be made kuown to the whites in time to afford them op portunity to o'-tain safe refuge, but the mes senger Sent by the agent failed to perform his duty, thereby facilitating the massacre, and the arrival of Boudy’s team without a driver, with blood upon the wagon, was the first, inti motion of the terrible tragedy tiie poor woman received. Before noon they found the bodies of the murdered men, stripped of all elotning at different points within a few miles of the house. They also met the Modocs, Hooker Jim, Long Jim, Curley-Headed Doctor, One Eyed Mouse, Kuck Dave, Hump Jerry aud Mrs. Hooker Jim, who were all implicated in the massacre. While tile Indians went to the house to fiud other male victims these women escaped and travelled night aud d ly, suffering many hardships, aud reached the house of Mr. Kapp in an exhausted condition. Gen. Davis received the woman kindly, heard their story, assigned them a tent and promised to assist them to recover their stolen goods. Thisforeuoou Hooker Jiui and Steamboat Frank, who had just returned from a scout af ter the four Modocs, were taken to tiro bank occupied by these womeu. Hooker Jim was identified by Mrs. Boody as one of the Indians concerned in the massacre. In response to some remark about the robbery of the house, Hooker Jim said that Long Jim took the long purse ar.d he (Hooker Jim) took the short purse. At this point of the interview the women became greatly excitpd, began crying, lost all control of themselves and started in fur desperate work. Mrs. Schiera drew a pistol and went for Steamboat Frank, and Mrs. Boody drew a lcnifo and dashed at Hooker Jim. Gen. Davis fulerfoietl ;aifi disarmed both of the women, receiving in the struggle a slight wound in the palm of the hand near the thumb from the knife in the hands of Mrs. Boody. The savages during the scene stood like stat utes; they neither spoke nor offered resistance. It galls Capt. Jack aud his comrades in ens tody to see Hooker Jim and Steamboat Frank travelling to and front will, and armed at that. He does not understand the consequence of turning states’ evidence. This afternoon lie became greatly excited and gave vent to his rage iu a fiery orati -n. He rose up in his chains which Schonchin and in a strong aud im pressive manner recited his grievances until an officer compell“d hi.n to desist. WHO ARE THE SAVAGES ? Cowardly Massacre of Modoc Prisoners toy Oregon Volunteers. Sax Francisco, .June 9.—Despatches from Boyle’s Cainp yesterday, relate the particulars sf an atrocious massacre of the MoJoc prison ers, supposed to have been perpetrated by the Oregon volunteers. On Saturday morning James Fairchild and about a dozen other men left Fairchild’s Rancho, Cottonwood Creek, with seventeen Modoc captives, including women and childreu, Shacknasty Jim, Bogus Charley, Tehee Jack, Pony and Little John. The Indians were in a wagon drawn by four males. At the crossing at Lost River the party encouDteied a bedy of Oregon volunteers under Capt. Haiser. The soldiers gathered about the wagan and questioned Fairchild. The latter told them the Indians were all Hat Creek’s ex cept little John, and there were uo charges againstvhem. Fairchild undertook to push on to Boyle, Camp and the volunteers returned to to their c^np near Crowley’s. On the rujd Fairchild noticed two men ahead ruimj to Rocky Poiutasif to intercept him. Wheat,he team approached the two men one of them iresentcd a needle gun at Fair child, saying, ijet down you old white-headed — , wbattuthority1’ said Fairchild. “By mine.; I am goiug.p till the Indians aud you, too, was the reply The leader caught hold of the mules and upptched them, cutting the harness. Fairchild Ringing to the lines escap ed to the grouud. TV poor wretches implor ed for mercy and be*cd Fairchild to save them. The warriors wt*e unarmed aud kuew resistance was useless, fhey were the coolest in the party, although facis, inevitable death, but women and children slir,be(], groaned and wept piteously Fairchild 1^] ,,'otliin- but a small pistol and six inches fronhis ear was the uiuzz’e of a needle gun. He sav, that the tears came into his eyes, and he mingle pjs entrea ties with those of tiie Modocs,«, hopes (he massacre would be avoided. He-adds: “I1 was a terrible scone. One I never sun forgot; T shudder when I think what 1 saw a-d heard.’ Tiie tearful voices of those women a,d chil dren still ring iu my ears, but the cowardly hounds were not to be balked.” A she, aIK] Little John lay dead in the wagon witli a bqiet in his brain. The mules dashed away \v'th Fairchild who became eutangled in the line. Five more shots were fired iu rapid succession, by which Tehee, Jack, Pony and Mooch were killed and little Jonh’s squaw was frightfully wounded in the shoulder. Awav ahead, on the road in the direction of Bovles Camp a cloud of dust was perceived, in dicating the approach of a team. The murder ers espied tiie dust and shortly afterwards were riding speedily away. Sergeant Murphy of battery G., 4th Artillery, with ten men and a teamster, came up to tiie scene of tiie massacre. The Sergeant took charge of affairs and r tnaine 1 with bis men on the ground. Fair child, a teamster and the wounded squaw with her two children, came at two o’clock this morning. Fairchild reached Gen. Davis’head quarters and related his story. Teams with an escort were at once sent to bring the prisoners dead aud alive. No stens were taken for the apprehension of the guilty parties, who are supposed to be Oregon volun teers. The warriors killed were not charged with murder. Those who know them best say they have only participated in open fights. Every one here condemns the affair. There is no doubt the murders were carried out on a carefully arranged plan, as Fairchild noticed horsemen in the road ahead and behind them when the shots were fired. The Cholera Inerensiua* Memphis, Tenn., June 9.—The cholera is be lieved to be on the increase, although there is no marked increase in the mortality since last week. The interments at Elmwood were 55 against 2d the corresponding week last year, and an average of 19 during last year. NETEOROMICilCAL. PROBABILITIES FOR THE NEXT TWENTY-FOCR HOPES.

Stormy Sndoo of the Cortes—Great Ex citement among the People—Figueras Continues. Madrid, June 9—Evening.—The session of th» Cortes last night was one of the stormiest on record. Owing to the confusion which pre vailed in the chamber, the closing of doors a poitiou of the time, by whieh reporters were excluded, and the late hour of adjournment, the morning papers were unable to obtain com plete or correct reports of the proceedings, and many false rumors in consequence obtained cur rency. The statement among others that the ministry proposed by Senor Pi Y. Margall was nppmved is incorrect. The House finally re jected his ministry, and called on Senor Figue ras ta resume tht conduct of the government with bis old cabinet. Tire following is an accurate resumeof the sitting: The Cortes af'er passing the resolu tions proclaiming tho remiblic, adjourned till evening for the purpose of completing the for mation of anew ministry. At 7 p m., the Home reassembled, and Senor Figueras opened the debate. He advised the republic to bo united and warned them that divisions witlii u their ranks would prove la al to the cause they held dear. The question then came up whether the ministers proposed by Senor Pi Y. Margall should be voted on eil filoe or separately. An excited discussion followed which was accom panied with frquect scenes of confusion. A motion was made to go into secret session. Senor Castellar protested. The Cortes he said owed it to the country that their proceed ings should be public. Senor P. T. Margal finally announced tlict in view of the sad scenes of disorder which lie could only consider as ev idence of distrust he would withdraw his list ot ministers. A great uproar followed and could only be silenced by Senor Figueras, who rese to move that the ministers be directly L by the Cortes. The motion for a se.iet sitting was t' on renewed and adopted, and at mid S .henneries were cleared and the reportr ers excluded Around the Palace the streetf were withac excited throng, and within the chamber the greatest agitation prevailed. 11 was rumored at one tune that an armed crowd had ent-red tine Palace and threatened to break into the hall. Moreover a tight between the military and the people in the streets was momentarily expected. Castelarand Figueras succeeded in restorin'* calm in exerted themselves to good effect'in'»Mn,ef and the populace outside. There beimr pecto t an agreement.of the doEtK asVX' coiuoositiou of the ministry Figueras brand Margall were successively called u,„,' to form one, but they either declined or failed in the task. After repeated consu.tations the whole Cortes finally appealed to Senor Figueras to remain in power wi h the old cabinet, and he at last con sented. At. 4 a. m. tho doors were thrown open and the Cortes proceeded to adopt a vote of confi dence in Figueras’ miuistry aud then adjourn ed. Burning o( a Palace—Ireland, London, June 9.—The total 1 -ss b.v the burn ing of Alexandria Palace is estimated at S3, 0l)0,000, on _ which insurances amount to SGOO. 000. The (ire was caused by the carlessness of workmen who were repairing the zinc roof. No one was killed as at lirst reported, but several persons injured. The supply of water was scarce, hence the rapidity with which the fire spread. Within a half hour from the time the alarm was given the entire structure was enveloped in flames. One by ono the great domes by which it was surrounded foil in with a sound like thunder. The. large organ was de stroyed, but some valuable pictures and other works of art were saved. In the House of Lords to-day Karl Russell introduced a bill for tlie better government of Ireland, which abolishes tbeufUce of Lord Lieut enant and provides that the voice of eight per sons out of twelve will suffice for a verdict. The object of the measure is to restrict the power of the priesthood and secure tho conviction of criminals. Tlie Character «f the Sew doverament. New York, June 9. -A Paris letter speaking of tho new government of France which suc ceeds Thiers and his cabinet, says: One fact characterized the accession of power in the bauds of new men. The transmission of tlie news to Prince Napoleon bv his political friends (bat be might return without dauger gives rise to the probability that the arrival of this Bona parte will soon be followed by that of Cora Pearl, who was an adjunct of the empire aud an especial friend of the banished Prince. Sim plicity and rectitude in private life go out with Thiers, and the can-can comes in with tho friends of monarchy. It is still the republic, hut the difference between the republic of yes terday and that of to-day is, that then it was in the hands of its friends, and it is now in the hands of its enemies. mexican Afluirn. St. Louis, .Tune 9.—Dr. D. H. Williams, who has resided in tlie State of Cobahuila, Mexico, for two years past, has reached here. In an ac count of affairs in that country, Dr. Williams confirms the report of the capture of Gen. Lo zada, the rebel chief, and states that it was be lieved lie was immediately shot. In relation to Gen. AnKenzie’s attack on the ICickapoo Indians on Mexican soil, Dr. Wil liams is of tho opinion there will be no serious complaints made on the part of tho Mexican authorities, as the latter have felt the necessity of some mutual arrangements between the two countries by wliieh Indian marauders upon eith er side can be followed across the river aud pun ished. The Doctor apprehends that the .Mexi cans will use the act as a precedent, and follow fugitives on this side of the Rio Grande. They will be sure to avai. themselves of the example set bv the Americans if not disavow, d This will eventually lead to trouble and plunge tho frontier into war. Such a result would, howev er. he hailed by many as desirable, as it would load to carviug out another fat .slice from the sick man on the southern border. There are, however, efforts being made by some of the leading parties on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande which may lead to negotiations for an nexation of mere Mexican territory, in order to strengthen the boundary line and by which Mexico will be enabled to pay her debts. The territory coveted for this purpose embraces the States of Nuevo, Leon,Cohalniilla, Chihuahua, the north end of Durango, Sonora and Lower California, known as the Mexican frontier States. 'This would shorten the boundary line one-half of the present meandering of the Rio Grande, and leave a frontier that would be much more easily protected by both nationali ties. MINOR TELEGRAMS.
