A slight fracas occurred iu the yard of the Portland Cuinpauy yesterday, between a big rough and a little fellow whom he was trying to “clean out. ” Tbe tables were turned and the big fellow got tbe cleaning out in good shape. A card printiug press has been added to the attractions in the glass blower’s room. You can get your card printed in a moment, and as neat as a pin.

No lively contest was made except in Ward 3, where a ticket composed of friends of Keut and Stone was chosen by a majority of two votes. The result i„ Wards 1, 2, 4, 5 and H is generally favorable to Mr. Dingley, and in Wards 3 and 7 to Judge Kent ami Col. Stone.

The fact* so far as can be learned are that Almon M. Gordon, and his wife and child, were murdered in cold blood in their bed* aoine time during Sunday night. Two other children were also shockingly muti lated, and probably left for dead. The house was then «et on fire to conceal the hellish deed, but fortunately it was discovered iu time to put it out and the bodies were found before they were destroyed. Coroner Poor of this city, summoned a posse and jury and immediately started for Ibe scene of the butchery. Later.— Further particulars of this horrible tragedy have been received. The deed was committed about 3 o’clock this morning, or the fire was discovered at that hour, burning the bed upon which the bodies lay dead. It seems there were seven persons in the house; Almon M Gordon and wife, and ,hree children aged about seven, five and ore years respectively, a little niece about ten years old, John True Gordon, an elder brother of the murdered man, and one Ward, a young man about eighteen years old, who was at work on the farm. John T. Gordon is about 28 years old, and Almon was about 25 years old. The condition of things were first discovered by Ward, who heard the children cry, which awoke hitn and he smel’ing smoke went down stairs and found the bed in tho room on fire. e immediately roused the brother, who also s ep up-stairs, and gave the alarm to the ' 71’and after severely burning bis hands Tho siirn,fX:inSUishi"« "he j nth *a njft bis view was a horrible one.

The following additional particulars of the Thorndike murder has been received: John Gordou, a man of seventy, had recently con veyed to his son, Almond M., his farm worth $3000, taking hack a mortgage for the life sup port of himself and wife. The other son.Johu T., was dissatisfied with this arrangement, and probably tbongbt that by the death of his brother and family, that the property would fall to him. This is the only motive thus far assigned at the time of the murder. The old people were absent ou a visit. The inmates of tile house were the murdered man, Aliuon M., aged 23, Emma A., his wife, aged 22, their childreu, Ira B., aged ti, and a little girl aged 17 mouths, Anoa A., niece, aged 9, John T., the brother, and tbe hired man. At about three o’clock tbe latter was awakened by tbe shrieks of tbe little boy, and immediately discovered that tbe house was on fire. Alarm ing the neighbors tbe flames were extinguished without much damage. Tbe bodies of the fath er, mother and infant, who occupied the same bed, were found mangled and so scotched a* to be hardly recoguixable. Tbe little boy, who slept in a crib in the same room, was severely wounded but may survive. Tbe bloody deed was evidently committed with an axe. which was fouud ou the premises. Tbe wounds of the three murdered persons were inflicted upon the bead, and mast have caused instant death. The brother, John T., was soon arrested and remains in custody of the sheriff. He is 28 years old, a farm laborer and unmarried. He maintains a sullen indifference, refusing to ans wer atiy questions but saying that at the proper time be will defend himself. A jury of inquest is now in session under charge of Coroner Poor, but had not rendered a verdict when the last train left Thorndike at half past six this evening.

The committee to inquire into the outrages on the Texas border deny the reports that the Texans made raids into Mexico, and say there I is nothing there to induce them to plunder their poverty-stricken neighbors. All our citi zens care for is protection in their persons and property against incursions from the Mexicans and Indians. After the Commissioners went un the Rio Graude to take the testimony the Mexicans on the lower part of the river crossed aud began thieving operations, tor which they were puraued and chastised by Col. McKenzie. Tne Texas Legislature instituted inquiry into the Mexican and Indian wrongs upon citizens of the State, when some of the most respecta ble residents of Neucez vallev went to Austin aud gave stronger testimony than they had pre viously given before the Commissioner. The Commissioners represent the amount direct and consequential to those who suffered bv those raids at between $50,000 000 and .m00O,00<>.— Five hundred petitions in the way of complaii ts were presented to the Commissioners, sup|H>rt ed by 1600 affidavits. Many of the |>etitiou< rs and atliiluvi s are represented to be men of fine education and most respectable character. As to the Kicbapnos it is supposed there ure not more than 200 winners of them altogether.— One of the old chief in referring to the proposi tion of the United States to the KieWapoos to go on a reservation, said to a Commissioner as follows: We would have hut a small growth of ground aud could not make raids ou other reservations. Here we are supported in part by the Mexican government, which not only supplies us with provisions, but giws us money, and when we want to go into Texas the Mexi can merchants and planters supply us with horses, guus and ammunition auJ previsions, that we may make our raid, and we pay them from what we capture. Besides we have a good country aud fine cli mate. many privileges and the whole Texas border to raid ou. The commissioners think that if the captives taken bv McKenzie should be restored to the Kickapoos they would be no more inclined to return to tin* United States than they are now, and hence they doubt the complying with their requests. The Secretary of the Internr will take no pres *rtion ou the telegraphic requestor the Kiekapoo commissioners except to refer it to the Secretary of War, with the suggestion that he confer with the Secretary of Stale ou the subject.

A Woman Poisons All Her Family. Chicago, June lfi. — A despatch from Deca tur states that last September A. W. Drake, a farmer, living near Nawcaqua, 111., died uuder suspicious circumstances. Mrs. York, his mother in-law and house-keeper, was sus pected of having something to do with his sudden death, but no steps were taken in the matter, and Mrs. York went to reside tvith her son in Kansas, when a few days since she was taken ill. The physicians told her that she had but a few hours to live and she then confessed to having poisoned her husband in 1805, Mrs. T. W. Drake, her daughter, two children of A. W. Drake, wife of E. R. Drake, formerly of this city, and last September A. \V. Drake. She then went to her son’s a short time ago and made a mixture of poison to administer to him at the first opportunity. Feeling unwell a day or two afterwards, the went after some medicine to the cupboard and by mistake took the fatal dose prepared for her son, which re sulted in her own death. Desperate Fight With Thieves. Chicago, June 16.—A desperate fight occur red this morning at the corner of Halstead and Erie streets, between three police officers and some burglars, which resulted in the shooting and probable killing of Jack Allen, one of the most dariug and notorious thieves in the coun try, and the capture of Dave Riggis alias Rog ers, or one-armed Dave, a scarcely less noted villian The burglars were spotted last night by Sheriff McDonald of Sioux City, on a train from Milwaukee, in which c ty on Saturday they robbed a dry goods store of several thou sand dollars worth of goods. McDonald telegraphed to the police head quarters here and three policemen met the train at the depot, bnt the thieves catching sight of them, jumped from the cars and ran. The officers overtook them aud met with a fierce resistance on attempting to arrest, them, Allen drew a pistol and fixed an ineffectual shot at officer Simmon's, who returned the fire, one of his shots striking Allen in the side pen etrating his intestines and inflicting It is be lieved a mortal wound. Riggis also fought desperately, but finally was captured and is now m jail. About $2,000 worth of stolen goods belonging in Milwaukee were recovered. The third burglar made his escape. Arrest of Alleged Train Wreckers. Norwich, June 16.—Three men were arrest ed in Plainfield last night and are now in prison here, charged with placing obstructions upon the track of the Norwich and Worcester Rail road, Sunday morning. Engineer Stanley P. Cooper of Preston, and Geo. Harvej, firemen, were severely injured by the escaping steam from the locomotive. A plank was placed upon the track just below the depot at Dav ville, hut was swept off by the cowcatcher. About two hundred feet further on the engine encountered a tie in the very heart of the vil lage and swept it some live hundred feet to a switch, where it caught, in a frog and threw tlie locomotive from t*~e track The engine could not be stopped and it swept the capstones from the bridge over the five mile river, and tlie locomotive^ and three cars, containing sixteen persons, fell into the bog meadows some four teen feet below, burying the engineer and fire man beneath the ruins. After hours of labor they were extricated, badly bruised and scald ed, but are reported doing well to-day. The Raida on ike Rio Grande. . New York, June 16.—A Washington spec ial says that the Mexican Border Investigating Committee have returned to that city to pre pare their report. They have been engaged constantly since January 10th. ard have heard evidences in 400 cases, and have received in ad dition 1300 ex-parte affidavits. Several women and children who had escaped from the Indians appeared before the com mission aud told the story of their terrible sufferings. The Cam anclies are said to be mainly engaged in the business of stealing and selling women and children of the white settlers, while the Kicka poos and Li pans and Mexicans organized as such, chiefly confine themselves to cattle steal ing. Raids of these people are so frequeut th t stock raising within 200 miles of the Rio Graude has been well nigh abandoned. Five Persona Drowned. Montpelier, Vt., June 16 —A painful acci dent occurred yesterday afternoon in what is called “Number Ten,” in the town of Calais.
