Death ot Owen Lovejoy. The telegraph has already conveyed to us the saddening intelligence that Uon. Owen Lovejoy, member of Congress from the Fifth Illinois district, died in Brooklyn at Ittllf past 11 o’clock on Friday night. The following biographical notice we find in the N. Y. Eve ning Post: Mr. Lovejoy had been complaining since last January, but came to this city from Washington on the 15tli, and the following day was out of doors; since then he has been confined to his bed with an affection of the liver and kidneys, lie was attended in his last Illness by Ids wife and daughter, and by many sympathizing friends. Mr. Lovejoy was a self-made man. Born iu Kennebec county, Maine, in 1811, lie passed his boyhood working on a farm, and paid his way through Bowdoin College by teaching school. Study ing theology, he received a call to the pas torate of the Congregational Church at Princeton, Illinois, and otliciated there for sixteen years, until, in 1856, he was elected to represent his district in Congress, where he was prominent as a bold and fearless advo cate of freedom for all. Ih 1847 bis brother. Kev. E. P. Lovejoy, an anti-slavery editor, was murdered at Alton, Illinois, by a pro slavery mob; and since then Owen Lovejoy had, naturally enough, manifested a deeper Intensity in his hatred ol slave institutions; aud to those of the opposite party his bold, unsparing denunciations had rendered him peculiarly obnoxious. Among the Incidents of his political career, it will he remembered that shortly after the struggle for the Speakership in the House which resulted in the election of Mr.—now Oeneral—Banks, Mr. Lovejoy was speaking very earnestly, when he was interrupted by Pryor, of Virginia, who said he did not wish to near any more oi such trash, lo tins Mr. Dovejoy replied that for six weeks the House had listened to the1-trash-’ of the Democratic members, and now it was his turn. Mr. Dove joy was at once supported by the Republican members, and Mr. Pryor by the southern Democrats—since, Secessionists. It was a really notable struggle for the maintenance of free 8|>eecli in our Congressional halls, and had for an incidental result, the famous Pot ter and Pryor challenge—a duel which never took place. Mr. Dovejoy was exceedingly popular in the district which lie represented, where he possessed great influence, and where his free and bold discussions of political questions, while he was yet a pastor, aided to form the political opinions of his constituents. He was as honest as he was fearless. In private life lie was amiable and irreproachable. The Character oi our Veteran Soldiers. We are permitted to make the following extract from a letter of Col. II. M. Plaisted, of the Maine Eleventh, dated at Morris Is laud, S. C., March 10th, to Mayor McDellan of this city. It presents a view or the influ ence o( army life upon the soldiers which is most gratifying to contemplate; especially when we reflect that sooner or later — soon we/hope—these soldiers, relieved from the duties of military life, will return home to dwell among us, and with us to take part in controlling the political affairs and in shaping the destiny of a country whose honor and in tegrity they have done so much to defend: “You are right wh^n you say there is hon esty and honor iu the army. Nor is itcouflued to the officers. We often hear of recruit* stealing from one another on their way to the army and after their arrival, but not so of our ‘veterans.’ You will not hear of their robbing each other on their way home,though their pockets may be full of money. The ser vice makes them better men and better citi zens, unless their officers are greatly wanting. There is good reason lor it, in the wholesome ness of military discipline, and in the absence of temptations. Resides, the life of soldiers is the constant exercise of the highest virtues; love of order aud neatness, fidelity to their colors and commanders, Temperance, Con stancy, Patience, Courage and Patriotism. All that old song about the demoralizing effects of war I do not believe in. It is my firm belief that I have not a man in my regiment who is not a better man to-day—aud will not make a better citizen—than he was when he enlisted in the army. This I believe to be true of regiments generally. I could give you many most interesting examples of individual cases iujpiwi ui nuat i nay. You need never fear, however long the war may last, that our body politic will be cor rupted by the return of old soldiers. They will carry with them to their homes the same love of order and industry, the same generos ity and patriotism they have exercised in the service. Allow me to say these thiugs for your encouragement. 1 have often thought you at home needed more encouragement than the soldiers. VVe are schooled to patience by the necessities of war and by our military training. If the war must last, let it. There ia only one icat/ out of it for us, and that is through it, to one complete and final triumph; if we would not be infamous in history. If you give us a chance to vote, as I trust you will, you will see no backing down in the ‘returns’ from the army.” Letter lroin Hath. Bath, March 20, 1864. To the Editor of the Prest: As it has been unpleasant weather till yes terday during my visit at this region, I have been unable to get around much. But Provi dence has at last favored your unfortunate friend,and-lie will now try to make himself useful as well as ornamental. Thus far, wherever 1 have been,in the surrounding re gion, a good word has been spoken for your paper, and what I intend to do in the future will be for the of the Press. There is a better feeling in regard to the paper now than there was in the same circles only one short year ago. I don't know as loaves and fishes have auything to do with it, but am rather inclined to think that the bold stand it has taken and maintained has “ turned many from darkness to light.” Bath has always been noted for its ship building, and this season has not been an ex ception. A large number of fine crafts are now on the stocks, and many of them are al most ready to launch. A splendid schooner named Adriana, of 100 tons, was launched I_a TIT _ J_J_/* . .1 I M lUUV.’UUJ W WH1 UIO JOIU VI i'l I • I/, V, Blaiadeli. She is to be commanded by Capt. Samuel Williams. Yesterday a large crowd of people were teen wending their way to the ship-yard of Messrs. Lemont <fc Kobinson, to witness the launch of the superio? ship “ Aberdeen.” It was a most successful launch. She is nearly 800 tons burden and is to be commauded by Capt. Anderson. Business is brisk and there is every prospect for its con tinuing so for some time. The Bavell Troupe has just concluded a successful engagement in this city. They are to visit Portland again very soon. O. Heavy Kobbkry.—While Mr. Willard B. Heath, (watchmaker aud jeweller,) and fami ly were at the meeting at N'orombega Hall, last evening, some burglars effected an en trance to his dwelling house on Spring street, by prying open a window with a “jimmy,” and carried off 80 watches, *75 in money, 8 gold rings, 2 gold pencils and 5 gold chains — amounting in all to *1500 or more, says the Bangor Whig. 25T" The Legislature have defined “ the Lord’s day,” to extend legally from midniglfl Saturday to midnight .Sunday. 5 TITLES OF ACTS AND RESOLVES Passed by the tegislature ol 1804.
