We ar rived in season to be present at the festival of the betrothed, called the “Polterabend.” Om entering, tea and cake were handed to us, the supper being reserved till later hours before the dance. Then comes all sorts of little sur prises. A curtain rises and two ladies appear, one dressed in a housewifely manner, knitting vigorously, the other holding a book. The first insists on practical duties: implores the bride not to allow her husband’s soup to burn; the other insists that she must read Schiller, etc.— Various plays and conceits succeed and then comes the supper, which we took sitting, and which opened with soup and finished with ice cream and fruits. At this supper little speeches were made, for the Germans and Norwegians, unlike ourselves aud the English in their hours of happiucss, sing aloud. Sweet senti ments and hearty toasts passed round; the lat ter were responded to by all rising and striking their glasses. The marriage of Miss H. R. A-n was con ducted iu Lutheran style, at church, with the exception of aNorwegan custom, viz.: in Nor way the bridegroom first enters the church with nine brother or dear friend who places him for the ceremony, then fol lows the bride with the father, brother or guar dian, who places her by the side of the bride groom. The semi-circle of the a ltar was adorn ed with flowers interspersed with lighted can dles. Tlie bride and bridegroom sit during the discourse just in frontof the altar; their imme diate friends have chairs placed around the semi-circle of the chancel. Two embroidered cushions, gifts of friends, are placed on the first step of the altar for the bride and bridegroom to kneel upon while they are pronounced man and wife. The priest is dressed in black gown and cap, offers a prayer, and a wofullylong ex hortation. The choir sing a liymn, then the bride and bridegroom exchan.e rings while kneeling, receive the blessing, and, rise—mar ried. —The Star says Mr. Sylvanus L. Akers, of Andover, while coming out of church, lust Sabbath, dropped down, aud expired almost immediately, of supposed heart disease, he I having been in usual good health. LATEST NEWS By TELEOIUAPH TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. ■ ##». - Saturday Morning, December 1, 1866. - *-- - — -1-—’ FROM MEXICO. Napoleon Arranging to Remove bis Troops. C>len. HJioriunn’s Krraiul «© Mexico. Maximilian not Exercising any Of ficial Functions. Capture of Jalapa by the Liberals. Washington, Nov. 29. Although no formal official communication has been made to this Government, no doubt information qas been verbally furnished of Na poleon’s intention to remove the French troops from Mexico at the earliest practical time, ar rangements for that purpose now being in pro gress- The reason why the first detachment, or one-third of the troops, have not embarked in November, according to the Emperor’s own programme, is that the other two-thirds might have been seriously damaged by the Liberals, who were persistently pressing them. To ob viate such a result it was deemed more prudent as a military necessity to remove t^eui all at once. Now there is no doubt that this will he done. Much speculation has been indulged in as to the actual business of Lieut. Gen Sher man iu accompanying Minister Campbell to Mexico. The truth, however, is that he was designated as adviser to that gentleman both as regards diplomatic affairs in Mexico and mil itary movements on the frontier, should an emergency arise to require a new disposition of our troops, hut since the reception of the Em peror’s intentions with regard to the removal of his army, it is not thought that such necessity will oocur. The last news received by »lie Government respecting Maximilian is that he was at Oriza ba, the French officials refusing to permit him to leave Mexico unless he formally resigned his crown. New Orleans, Nov 28. Our disoatches from this point yesterday fur nished intelligence from the Rio Grande as late the 23d inst., one day later than that of the Galveston dispatch. The report that Gen. Sedgwick had crossed his troops and taken possession! of Matamoras is evidently a canard. Gen. Sedgwick had paid an unofficial visit to Escobedo, wlio was invest ing Matamoras. New Orleans, Nov. 28. The steamer Alliance arrived from Vera Cruz this mornfng with Mexican dates to the 25th inst. Maximilian’s baggage had arrived at Vera Cruz, but he himself was at Orizaba, in which place he had been residing for the last two weeks as a private gentleman, not exercising any functions of office. In the port of Vera Cruz there were two French and two Austrian frigates, and the frig ate Tampico. Marshal Bazaine was at the City of Mexico. The Fyench now hold that place and Puebla, Orizaba and Vera Crux, using Cordova as an outpost. They were fortifying Orizaba—an im pregnable stronghold—and also strengthening the pass of Belmencho as an outpost for Vera Cruz. Thev hold no other nossw sions in Mnv ICO. It is rumored that the Church party had of fered to raise six millions of dollars for Maxi milian if he would consent to remain in the country. An American Protectorate was regarded by the people as the only solution of their present difficulties. On Tuesday, Nov. fifh, the Liberal army marched an overwhelming force on Jala;.a which was strongly fortified and garrisoned by Imperial Mexican and Austrian troops. Can nonading continued for several days at inter • vals. The Mexican Imperial troops deserted to the Liberal army and the Imperial troops were driven to the Cathedral, where they were cut oil' from supplies of food and water. The cannonading was distinctly heard over fifty miles. The final attack was made on the 11th inst., when the Imperial troops soiTendered as prisoners of war, and were so respected. On the 11th, Col. Dupea with 1000 troops arrived from San Bartholomos en route to Jalapa.— Hearing of the surrender he returned to Ori zaba. The Alliance brought dispatches for the Mex ican and French Consuls at this point, the pur port of which is unknown. Washington, Nov. 29. The Government has received no intelligence of Gen. Sedgwick’s alleged move, and thinks the statement is untrne. THE FENIANS. The Atlantic Cable Denounced. A BRITISH EMBARGO. Money and Men Rapidly Coming In. _ New York, Nov. 30. The scanty intelligence furnished through the cable, of the rumored rising in Ireland, is causing great dissatisfaction among the Feni an portion of our inhabitants. It is believed the British Government has placed an embar go purposely on the cable, so that no news of an eqcitable nature may be transmitted here until the rebellion if at all commenced, is stamped out. The headquarters of James Stephens is kept in a state of continual bustle and excitement by the solid snpporters of the C. I. F. R., many oi whom called on Col. Kelley and Gen. Hal pin to-day, and tendered contributions to a considerable amount. Concerts, balls, and all sorts of conceivable means are being usei L to raise money, and there is no doubt the war fund will be augmented at least fifty fold be fore the end of next week. Hundreds of young fellows who have served with distinction in the Union and Confederate armies, called upon Colonel Kelley during the day and oger 'nd their seavices in the coming struggle for liberty. It is supposed that several privatsers are al ready being fitted out in the States, to prey on British commerce tiie moment the Fenian was probably commenced Toronto, C. W., Nov. 30. A Quebec correspondent says fears are en tertained of a raid from Vermont during the trial of the Fenians at Sweetsburg, the object being to release the prisoners. It is reported the Fe niaus are gathering at St. Albans and other points on the irontier. Washington Correspondence. New York, Nov. 30. The evening papers have the following spec ials from Washington: The French Government has yielded to the President’s demand relative to Mexico. Officers of the Western National Bank are here to protest against the proposition to re deem their currency in New Yore. Breckinridge is petitioning lor pardon. A private letter from London says Secretary Seward’s dispatch to Bruce has awakened a belligerent feeling among the Tories. The Post’s Washington special says: Acting Comptroller Hubbard in his annual report will recommend an increase of currency to the 1 amount of $25,000,000, and it is reported that Secretary McCulloch will agree to it. It is certain that Congress will be urged to provide for the redemption of all National Bank notes issued in New York. The caucus of the Republican members is postponed until Saturday night. Five or six cholera cases have occurred this week. Front Washington* Washington, Nov. 36. The receipts from Internal Revenue yester day ami to-day, was #1,430,917; The Postoffice Department has simply agreed on a preliminary basis tor a postal treaty with Great Britain. The articles there fore remain to he formally executed and the time fixed tor its operation. It is expected the treaty will be in lull force by or before Janua ry, 18ti8, at which time the preseut postal trea ty between the United States and Ureat Brit ain will expire by limitation.

On Thursday morning they came into Court and reported that they had not been able to agree upon a verdict. The papers were taken from them and the case was continued. The Jurors stood at first, and nearly all the time, eight for conviction and four for acquittal. Once or twice the ballot stood nine to three. The jurors have been discharged from any further attendance at this Court. MUNICIPAL COUNT. JUDGE KINGSBURY FRESTDINO, Friday.—William F. Dyer, on a search and seizure process, paid the ntnal amount, $22.26. John Fagan, for drukeuness and disturbance, paid *8.17. John Robinson, for drunkenness and dlsturbanoe, was fined $3 and costs. He refused to pay and was committed. After the warrant for his committal had been made out and he hail been taken into the police office, he pitched into Deputy Marshal Wentworth. Wentworth pounded the floor with the fellow’s head a short time, when the ruffian cared In. Thaskagiriai Day. The mild weather of Thursday was more like “fickle, fooling April” than November.— The showers and the mud put a damper upon out-door sports, with the exception of the pop ular game of Reconstruction, or Four months after the Fire. The Butcher, the baker and the candle-stick maker sat quietly in church, or at home, waiting in placid anticipation for the well-basted turkoy. The masons, the car penters and the joiners were busy all day long, in spite of the proclamation. Many ahops bad one shutter down in the forenoon, but had mostlv their trouble for their pains, customers keeping resolutely aloof. Religious services were held in the morning at St. Luke’s Church, Chestnut Street, Park Street, High Street and Congress Square, and in the evening at Casco Street. Dr. Shailer preached at Chestnut St., Rev. Mr. Hayden ad Park Street, and Captain Dutton of steamship HiberniaD, at the Casco Street. The services in the other churches were conducted by the Pastors. PARE-STREET CHURCH. The services in Park Street Church, Thanks giving day, were the joint exercises of the two congregations worshipping there. Rev. Mr. Hewes being absent from the city, Rev. Mr. Hayden (Swedenborgian) officiated. After a brief allusion to the many causes for thankfulness presenting themselves in the circumstances by which we are this year sur rounded, the speaker announced, as the princi pal theme of his discourse, “The Age in which we Live,” as a reason for gratitude and praise. He called to mind the differences between this and former times. The distance we have travelled in one hundred years from the old world, in which our ancestors toiled and lived, traded, legislated and worshiped, can now with difficulty he realized. Some of the his torians give us vived pictures of the social de ficiencies and moral declension of the first half of the last century. He then drew a contrast between that age and the present, in which were presented many striking particulars of the advantages possessed in our times, beyond those of that age. The political power of Rome was described as then ruling the world, and as offering the grand impediment in the way of a healthful progress. The nations that acknowledged her sway had come to a stand still. But in 1757 her power was overthrown.— Protestantism in Europe, in the East Indies, and on the American Continent, gained such immense successes, in that year, as to secure, thenceforward, the predominance of liberal ideas in the politics of the world. Since then the main stream of History has flowed in the Protestant channel; and an Age, under the blessing of God, of the most unexampled pros perity, enlightenment and improvement has been the result. The movement has a spiritual cause and meaning. Divine Providence intends good to the human race, by the more perfect establish ment of the Church, and the precepts of the Gospel as the law of life. We ought to be thankful that our lot is cast iu this more happy'Age of freedom and relig ious toleration with greater means of purity and happiness iu our hands, and we ought to live—to learn, act, and think, so as to keep on the movement, and aid in bringing the glori ous day pictured in the 22d Chapter of Reve lations, when the Divine Will will be done on earth as it is done in Heaven. The addross was exceedingly able, and we are happy to learn that, by request, Mr. Hay den lias consented to repeat it, with some ad ditions, to-morrow evening in Park Street Church. Mr. Hayden always illuminates whatever subject he discusses, and we have no doubt he will have a full house. FIRST UNI VERBALIST CHURCH. At this church a ritualistic service, appro priate to the day was performed, Joined in by pastor, choir and people. The sermon of the pastor which, owing to the length of the devo tional services, was neeessnrily brief, did not touch at all upon those excitiDg public ques tions which are usually made the subject of Thanksgiving discourses. The theme of the preacher was The elements of a True Thakful ness, which he found to be chiefly three, name ly: Thoughtfulness, Faith and Obedience.— Thoughtfulness to enable us to judge rightfiil lp of the blessings of God, that our joy be not the mere unreflecting gladness of a child;— faith which makes us to accept the sorrowful as well as the joyful appointments of the Good Father as proofs of his loving kindness; and obedience, which brings to the altar the purest of all thank-offerings, a life ordered in accordance with the Divine Law. The subject was handled with simplicity, force and direct ness, and occasionally with eloquence. The musical portion of the service at this church was extremely beautiful and appropriate. CASCO STREET CHURCH. There is quite a revival of religion in this church, and the pastor, Rev. Dr. Graham, took ocoasion to make the services appropriately praise and thanksgiving for spiritual and tem poral mercies. Prayer meetings were held both raorningnnd afternoon, which were truly peayon <* tBbntalgiving for aU. the mercies vouchsafed to Jur land, and for the special mer cies bestowed Upoisthat church. The results of the recent ijecflbn* were themes also for thank* to Almighty God. In the evening Capt. Dutton, of British Steamship Hibernian, delivered a disooiuge, which was listened to 1 with great interest. HtOH Shut CHURCH, Six congTegationj worshipped itere — the State Street Cong&gatloftaliMs, Free Street Baptist,Pafon CoRUMgatienalUt, Second and Third Parishes. Thin church was greatly erMWded, Mr. Fenn took ii Kings 7: 9. “Then they said one to another, we do not well. This day is a day of good-tidings, and we hold our pesos.” The speaker opened his discourse with the special and local reasons of Thanksgiving, , Shurch and family. The Puritan er, that the day would degenerate in iRud haeknpyed repetition of similar were condlped to our own innnici We most grasp the lessons oif —lenee In the nation at largo, and aarghpt and practical acknowledgment of Onr chief congratulation to-day is Upon the intelligence and probity of our people. They understand themselvesj and the problem of the hour. Their verdict t^pon the issue between Congress andExeouttvtia explicit They have won the fight, and are not to be trifled with. If our first duly is towayd the Southern States, and the first yueption-bt^heir conciliation, then is Mr. Beecher right aid his letter unanswer able. ... t The people, however, toneeive that their first duty la to themselves. < The public faith is pledged to the black soldier and cannot be brok en. The country must rabeive the highest guar antees of future security. These guarantees are Still wanting.- The action of the Southern Legislatures hasgtot beef ratified by the peo ple of their sevetM State*. The speaker adduced many historical paral lels to prove thy value of singleness and con tinuity of purpota in tfalt direction, and that beyond removing the temptations of future dis tractiveness and sectionalism, we could only trust to large and wide-sweeping causes for harmony. Time, interest, intercourse will solve mist. While wo are |o be determined as to our dnty, he urged magnanimity and charity. CHXBTSCT M. X. OUUBCH. At the Chestnut Street Methodist Church, a sermon was preached by Bftv. Dr. Shatter, from Psalms 6S. ft "Qod setteth tke solitary in fami lies." After an appropriate introduction, showing that man was oreated asocial being and craved companionship with others, it was remarked that provision had been made to meet his wants in this respect. The domestic rela tion was established, and God who said “it is not good for man to he alone ” set the solitary In families. Hence it was remarked:— 1st That the family relation was institu tuted by Ged. In illustrating this proposttien it was shown that It was God who fitted man for this relationship—His Providence directed in its formation, and His word sanc tioned and guarded ft, so that its highest ad vantages and blessings might be secured. It was under the teaching of His truth that a Chris tian home became so sweet and was the abode of purity and peaoe. 2d 8ome of the countless benefits resulting to man from the family relation were consider ed. These begin with ouf earliest infancy and are continued Unsough everyetage oi life. l|ere principles are inculcated—imdnictidns given— habits formed — sympathies awakened — love cherished which lead to the development of man’s truest nature. 3d It was remarked that we found in the blessedness of the family relation much to awaken our gratitude and call forth thankgiv ing. It was a day when the domestic festivi ties were joyous to us all, when parents and children and grandchildren assemble to partake of the bounties of Providence, and realize how sacred and Bweet are the bonds of the tamily relation. No other day in the year is so hal lowed in this respect, and it is meet that with thankfulness of hearts, we should on this day offer praise to the Author of all Mercies, for thus setting the solitary in families. This is but a brief outline of a 4iscourse which was listened to with attention, and it is hoped with profit. The attendance at the churches was gener ally respectable and at Hjgh street even crowded. The city was very orderly throughout the day and evening. The theatre was thronged and the hall at Mechanics’ Hall ,/was largely attended. t ___ An Incident.—On Thanksgiving day eve ning, just after dark, a well dressed man set himself down on the step of Messrs. Hayes & Douglas’ store on Pore stieet. He evidently had imbibed a generous supply of the bever age, “spirit ardent ” and being of a religious turn of mind, he concluded to hold a meeting, As presiding elder, he commenced the exercises by Binging with a mellow voice, a medley, con sisting of the Doxology, psalms and hims, and peneroyal tunes, and then began to exhort his hearers to be thankful and happy, as he was, for he had received a great many blessings, in cluding a turkey and chickens, but the best blessing of all was whiskey I Afterwards he proceeded to High street and serenaded his sweetheart with several plaintive and patri otic songs, but, on pulling the bell discovered that he had made a mistake, as she did not dwell in that vicinity. p. p. Thanksgiving Festival.—We learn that that the Thanksgiving Festival held at the West Congregational Church last Thursday evening, was a complete- success. Although the evening was unfavorable, the house was well filled. The Sabbath School performed its part admirably in Binging and speaking. The tables bore ample testimony to the liberal in terest and excellent taste of the ladies who prepared them, and the occasion was one of happiness to all present The Society realised one hundred dollars, free from all expenses, as a very acceptable aid in its own support— This Society is young but flourishing and de serves much credit and encouragement for its earnest and united efforts to maintain within itself the institutions of the Gospel. Thanksgiving Rows. — Notwithstanding thanksgiving day passed off in an unusually quiet manner, still there were a few rows, oc casioned by the use of two muoh burning fluid. There was a fight between a couple of Celts in the yard ai the Centre Street School House. Both came off victorious. Anothor small fight occurred between a couple of the same origin on Danforth street, neither of them suffering’ much. A gang of rowdies on Commercial street got into a fight among themselves, much to the satisfaction of lookers on, and some heavy blows were given on both sides. Afekay.—Yesterday afternoon a couple of bummers undertook to have a game of fisti cuffs on Fore street near Franklin street.— Both of the combatants had more rum on board than they could conveniently carry, and they knocked each other over in fine style.— The affray continued for about fifteen nftn utes, when they separated, hearing that the police were approaching, with a promise to re new the fight at some more auspicious time.— The police arrested one of the combatants and took him to the lockup. Accident.—Yesterday a laborer named Lar rabee was severely injured by being struck on the head with a brick from a barrow load that was emptied from the third story of the City Hall on Myrtle Street. The man who was emptying the load cried “look out,” qfter he had dumped it I Dr. French attended to the injured man and dressed bis wounds. Mr. Larrabee was dangerously wounded, his skull being cracked. Thunk suiting in Jail. Parker House, Nov. 29th, 1880. Mr Kditor .-—Having arrived in Portland, and beirg an entire stranger, and receiving a very pressing invitation to make the Parker House my home during niy stay in your city, I very readily complied with the invitation, where I met the very gentlemanly landlord who keeps the house, and iouud him well qual ified to entertain his gnets. We therefore concluded to make that our home for tho pres ent, and on learning that great preparations were making there for the Thanksgiving din ner, we concluded to note the guests on that occasion. So, at the signal for dinner, wc took our stand in a conspicuous place for observa tion, while the guests were taking their places (for dinner). Among them we noticed Rev. John Sullivan and Rev. D. R. Carter (who have been transferred from their former field •f labor to the dlooese of Portland), Admiral James McGui ness (British Navy), Hon. A. L. Brown (Mass. Legislature), Col. J. J. Driscoll (temporally hors du combat, from a recent en gagement), Lieut. William North, Capt. James Kelley, Adjt. Mark Rsach, Commodore John Holland, Gen. John Sullivan; the distinguish ed explorer Melvin Keniston, Count Thomas Bradeen, George F. Baker, wholcsali clothes dealer, Brig. Gen.B. S. Waverley,Dan.Webster LLD; the Duchess Mary Oaudly, the Abbess Martha Mason, the actress Annie Aikins, Rev, Joseph Russell, John Murry, A. M., Professor Charles Reynolds, Gen. James Brown, Sec Stephen Phinney, Admiral Charles Gove, Co'. John Cripps, Rear Admiral Mark Sullivan, Hon.Augustus Moore (Mass.Legislature,)Hon. James Storer, Gen. Charles Sawyer, Rt. Rev. J. H. Sullivan, with twenty-five other distin guished persons, who did ample justice to the turkeys served up on that occasion. We no ticed the landlord, who appeared to be every where present, and paying strict attention to the wants of his guests, who appeared to be from every State in the Union, and every Kingdom of the earth. After all had partaken plentifully of the lux uries prepared for them, and a candid consul tation of the merits of the same, it was unani mously decided by tho guests that the dinner served np at the Parker House for the present Thanksgiving, was the best dinner given in the city. ■ , We would observe that the Parker House is a strictly temperance house, and boarders are accommodated with rooms and board at the shortest notice. Respectfully yours, R. J. Doletii. Aid fob a Deserving Public Servant.— In respect to an old and esteemed public school teacher, we would call the attention of the res idents of Muqjoy Hill to the fact that Mrs. Martha CumpsLon, one of the oldest primary school teaohers in this city, and well known to the people of that locality, has determined to ask from her friends there, some aid to enable her to rebuild her house destroyed by the lato fire. Mrs. Cumpston has been a constant teacher in our publlo schools for more than twenty three years past, a greater portion of this time among the people on the hill, and she was a teacher at the time of the fire. Her entire property was swept away in that dreadful con flagration, and the school house in which she was teachiug having been also destroyed, she is left not only without means, hut without oc cupation also. Mrs. C. has always enjoyed the reputation of being an efficient and popular teacher.— Nearly two thousand scholars have been under her tuition during her tong term of service, many of whom are now among our most en terprising business men. If each of the scholars remaining in the city could contribute but a small amount to her aid, she would be relieved from all want. It is hoped that those to whom application may be made will respond cheerfully. Volun tary contributions by fnends who may not de sire to await solicitation, would reach Mrs. C. if left at 49 Spring Street. Embargo on Steamers. — The storm of Thursday night and Friday morning placed an embargo on the stoamers. The New England for St. John, arrived here at her usual time Thursday afternoon, from Boston, hut laid ov er ou account of the storm until last night.— Tho New Brunswick, from St. John for this port, put buck to Eastport, where she remained yesterday. The Katahdin and Lady Lang, trom Bangor, the former for Boston, the latter for this port, were at Bockland yesterday. The Lady Lang will leave this port for Bangor,at 9 o’clook this evening. Mrs. Susie M. Johnson, who has been speaking for the Spiritual Association for the several Sabbaths past, will close her present engagement to-morrow. Her lectures thus tar have been of a very radioal character, and prin cipally upon practical subjects, religious, po litical and social. The hall has been crowded, every seat being occupied, and large numbors standing every Sunday, and we have never seen closer attention paid to any speaker. Free Lecture—The second lecture of Ecv. Mr. Gage, on Biblical Geography, will be given at the Chapel of State Street Church this ev ening, at 7 1-2 o’clock. The first lecture, upon the location of the Garden of Eden, was in teresting and instructive, and was listened to with marked attention by a very large audi eence. If we are correctly informed, the sub ject this evening will be the possessions of Abraham. Damage to Walls.—Some slight damage was done to a few of the brick walls, going up in this city, by the raia of Wednesday night, but nothing of a scriouto character. A small portion of the side wall of the shop erecting by John Neal, Esq., on Exchange street fell in.— Some slight damage mas occasioned to two or three walls on Fore street and some oi the old standing walls were prostrated. New Hotel.—We learn that Messrs. Shep ley and Jose have conchided the purchase of the Natural History Sooiety (Academy) lot, on Congress Street, and that they will erect a sp'endid hotel on the IClm Hotel lot and that above mentioned. It is one of the most eligi ble places in the city for such a purpose. Thanksgiving at thp Work-House.—The inmates of the aimshoarse were gratified on Thanksgiving Day with a luxurious dinner of fowls, puddings, pastry, &c., which they en joyed with great content. In the evening to the music of a violin, the^ enjoyed a dance. Seizure of Liquor. .-Yesterday the police seized small quantities of liquors in the shops of Abner Paine and Martin Ryan on Green street, Mary McGinnis^ Fore street, and Hen ry J. MeG inohy on Green street. Falx of a Buixdvto.—A building in pro cess of erection on t#e Fox lot in the rear of Fore and Exchange streets, tell down yester day afternoon with a crash, during the slight squall. Patents.—Patents lxave been granted this week to Beitjomin B. Brown, of Portland, for combined coat hod and sifter,|and to P. A. Ger ry, of Doveq, for Improvenent in sewing ma chines. The Mexican custom ol using soap as a cir culating medium, has extended to this country for all housewives consider Lettthe & Gore’s steam refined soaps as good as gold itself. Collision.—Two locomotives on the Grand Trunk Railway collided with each other on the track near Fish Point, Thursday night— Both engines were somewhat dlamaged. We would call attention to *Je sale ol onions to-day at the head of Central wharf, by E. M. Patten fir, Co. Thaw Rsorvrao.—The employees of Messrs. Georfye T. Burroughs & Co. were made the re cipiqFits of a Thanksgiving tur fcey each. , REliieiOt'N. —Rev. George W. Diirell, formerly rector of the Episcopal Church lu Bath, has entered up on his duties as rector of Emmanuel Church, Somerville, Mass. —At the Baptist Ministerial Institute lately in session at Watervil e, the following topics were discussed: 1. The grounds of strict communion. 2. The best method of raising money for be nevolent objects. 3. How may pasters most effectually aid each other in their work? 4. The best method of promoting revival in terest. —Rev. Charles Van Nnrden ofNew York is to be installed over the Congregational church of New Orleans, organised last spring by Rev. W. T. Eustig of New Haven. — Elder Knapp the revivalist is preaching in New York. He intends to go to California in the spring. —The Gospel Banner says the Universalists of Saco and Biddcford have recently extended an invitation to Rev. Judson Fisher of Paper Mill Village, N. H., to become their pastor, with a stroug probability of his acceptance. —We learn from the Mirror that the Con gregational church Pittsburg, Pa., of which Rev. Henry D. Moore is pastor, is preparing to build a house of worship, and the ladies of tlie church are to have a grand fair for the object on the 11th of December. —Rev. George B. Illsley was ordained pastor of the Baptist church in Springvale on Wed. November 21st. In the afternoon of the sr tne day a new and commodious house of worship for this society was dedicated, as we learn from the Advocate. —Tli» fact that the Roman Catholic custom of confession has been of late years gaining gronnd among the High Church in England, has often been asserted. At length Dr. Pusey himself, in a letter to the London Times, ac knowledges it and evident y rejoices over it.— He says: “The use of confession among us all —priests and people—fsvery larjpe. It pervades every- rank, from the peer to the artisan or the peasant. In the course of this qu irter of a century (to instance my own experienca which I must know,) I have been applied to to receive confessions from persons in every rank, of every age, old as well as young, in every profession, even those which you would think least acces sible to it—army, navy, medicine, law.” —me unriemn. Aitvocate nas an cauonai urging American Methodists to undertake in a thorough manner a mission to Italy. It urges that the English Wesleyans, who have a mis sion there, are not so acceptable to the Italian people as Americans would be, hut that Meth odism is peculiarly adapted to them.) —An effort is being made to rebuild tho Sea men’s Bethel in this city, but it is found diffi cult to obtain the necessary funds. The build ing has been carried far enough to secure the old walls so far as standing, and an effort will be made to finish the vestry this winter. Ber. Mr. Sonthworth, pastor of the church, writes to the Boston Recorder: “There are some 30, 000 seamen frequenting this port annually, and a church here for them is a necessity, and an institution in which the whole country is inter* ested. We need some 3,000 dollars to complete our work and leave us free from debt in clear working trim.” —From the Gardiner Reporter we learn that on Wednesday 2tst, Rev. John T. Magratb. Deaoon, was admitted to the sacred order of Priests, at Christ Church, in that city. The sennon was preached by Rt Rev. G. M. Ran dall, D. D. Missionary Bishop of Colorado. THE STATE —The Argus informs us that several para graphs of State news which we have lately cred ited to the Saco Democrat were borrowed from its columns without acknowledgment. The Dem ocrat, it appears, is the sheet to which the Ar gus lately referred as “the only paper which has the meanness to copy its exclusive news without credit." Settle it among yourselves. —“The Organ” of the Sons of Temperance of Maine, published monthly at Gardiner, has reached its sixth number. We learn from the last number that a call will shortly be issued for a State Temperance Convention, to meet in Augusta some time in January. One of the leading objocts of the Convention will bo “the earnest consideration of the means of se curing fidelity to Temperance principles and measures in all places of official position or public trust.” We are surprised to learn that many Divisions have as yet done nothing to promote the circu'ation of the Organ. It is offered at the surprisingly low rate of 15 cents for the next six months. —The Augusta correspondent of a Boston paper says: The railroad bridge over the Kennebec at this city was endangered by a fire which broke out ' in one of a group of wooden huildings on Wa ter street. The floods of water poured upou the flames by our steam fire engine confined the damage to the upper part Of the building in whioh the fire originated, and the loss was slight. —The great Dyke at Machias lias broken away. The Union says: Last Friday brought extremely high tides and in the night the sluice, which was built and put in its place in September, at a cost ot fifteen hundred dollars, was lifted from its bed and floated off up towards Marshfield bridge, leaving the whole central part of the Dyke, which was about finished, open aaid exposed to the action of the tides, which will no doubt wash much of it away. —The people of Bangor are deeply interest ed in the project for a dam at Treat’s Falls. The Whig says it has been decided to consti tute a committee who are to reaeivo and hold subscriptions to the amount ot one hundred thousand dollars, until the subscribers, to whom the shares of the Penobacot Mill Dam Company are to be- transferred, organise and elect a Board ot Directors. The functions of | the Committee are then to cease, and the con trol of the funds raised, is to be passed over to the new organization of the Company. Ke ftisal3 have been obtained of K>e stock, char ter and franchises of the Penobscot Mill Dam Company, and of five hundred nnd thirty-five acres of land, for eighty-eight thonsand dollars, of which a liberal proportion will be taken in stock. And this is exclusive of about sixty five acres of river fronts in Brewer, of which conditional deeds have been executed. —The Bath Times has changed ha mV, ami it was announoed in that sheet on Thursday th»it the next issue would bo under new auspices. —Another ease of horse butchery is reported in Danville.

Olcott, ClotmurJicAiin house aud other State aud staff officers Mr Fessenden seemed to be much gratified at this mark of the consideration in which he is hold Mr. Fessenden was formally received by the Union League Club, to-night. The president John Jay called the meeting to order, and aitcr interchanging iutroduotious,addres.scd the club, announcing the presence ot their guest, Sena tor Fessenden, and paid a tribute to his talents, patriotism, and services to the country, al ud lng to the vindication of his course by his own State, by New England aud the country. He welcomed him to New York, ami to the hospi talipes o the club, who were proud of an op portunity to take him by the hand. -ur. e esse ..den replu-d that ne was rejoiced to meet the members of an organization so well known to the country. Their aid to the soldiers on their way to aud from the seat of war,-their patriotic efforts during the conflict,—tboir prompt adoption of measures for the vigorous prosecution of the war, and their easly raia ng m colored regiments, has made them honora” bly distinguish^!, and be was happy to toe-1 them. He then discussed upon napouai topics. The question of reconstruction had been deter mined by the people. He had no misgivings. They should not hasten nor compromise toe re sult. There was no occasion to he in a hurry. Tho President had no business to have a policy on the subject. The question belonged to the loyal people aud their representatives. Tho recent elections had determined a 1 doubt*. He desired to have the country restored, and all the States to their places as loyal constituents of one great Republic j hut he did not believe in measures all propounded for ono side. Con gress had a duty to perform and would do it firmly. He remarked of Jobusou that he did not know liow he came inside of our party.— He discussed foreign policy. He would ac knowledge the talent aud ability of the Secretary ef the State, hut ' since fhe election in New York he did not tnke him for a prophet. New York had doi • well. He w ished nhu had done betier. It was a glorious Spite—glo.ious tor this victory. He would say this was a glorious city, except iu some things. Perhaps, with the examples be fore her, this city would do gloriously in fu ture. Mr. Fessenden was listened to attentively, and frequently applauded. When he coucNld ed Mr, Jay introduced Senators Morgan aud Grimes, Representatives Washburn, Hooper „ and others. Messrs. Grimes, Washburn aud others made speeches to the club and then in changed greetings and c-.nversatinr.. The oc casion ware interesting in more than a usual degree. A Singulah Newspaper.—Mr. Moses A. Dow recently declined to bo considered a can didate for >®yor of Charlestown, Mass., for tho singular reason that he did not consider him self qualified for the office. The following ac count of his newspaper will show that he is otherwise a man of original ideas: A newspaper man lias just been elected to the Massachusetts Htate Senate, from Charles town, whom few, except his own class of read ers, have even yet heard of, yet, with one ex ception, he is the most successful proprietor in New England. This person is Moses A. Dow, who publishes the Wavorly Magazine. Twen ty-five years ago, when the Millente excite ment began. Mr. Dow had a stuull hook print ing office in Boston. He secured the printing of Joshua V. Himes, who was the business man of the sect, and as there was a great deal of it, he made a pretty little sum l y the ar rangement. 1 his he lost in real estate Invest ments, and, the Millerite fever being over, had no opportunity to redeem himself. He thou went to work at the case as a journey man printer. Not being a very good one, he found it hard to earn more than from six to ten dol lars a week in. those days. With a family on bis hands, this made him Very poor. He then conceived a unique plan l'ora newspaper. It was to be a weekly “literary” periodical, to wlilcb every one should contributo who desir ed. There was to be no standard of merit for admission of writers to its columns. On the contrary nothing was to be excluded. It was to be comparatively very expensive in its ty pography and paper, but net a cent should be paid to authors, their compensation being tho privilege of appearing iu print with the beet type ami the best of paper. The project seem ed a wild one. Mr. Dow had not a cent of cap ital, and as he unfolded liis plans to type founders and paper men, no one had the least confidence in it. It was a long time before ho could get oredit and cash torhis first number, but these were at last obtained, and by work ing closely hiuiself, he succeeded iu gettiug it out. It took instantly. Its first appearance was very handsome, lor he had capital typo graphical t&ste. The people who wrote for it first bought and thou their friends followed suit. There was an euurmous amount of read ing in it, and contributions piled in from am bitions folks who found a new sensation iu not having their stories and poems rejected. Boon there was a handsome income derived, which Mr. Dow shrewdly devoted to giving the paper a yet better dress. His clrcidation Increased with each new writer, and be was more and more prospeuius. A literary Bohemian from London about this time rnalcMr. Dow’s acquaintance, and in an evil hour (ior Mr. Dow’s pocket) this individu al was engaged as editior. He set about win nowing the chaff that was sent in. This did not answer at all. The circulation began to fall off almost as rapidly asit had risen, and it was soon apparent that the paper mu t die, or part with its editor. The latter course was chosen, and prosperity returned. The opening of the war was a heavy blow t* its circulation, but it raided Atom this in good time. The income from it is now lully sixty thousand dollars a year. The entire edition is sold to tho American News Company. It has few subscribers, no editor, and no exchange list. It just travels right on tho high road of prosperity by being demo cratic enough not to discriminate in what it publishes, exoept on the ground of morality, where it is very particular. It is not evon sen sational. Its forte is harmless love stories, such as young women like to write, and very young women like to read, too, if wo may judge from the extent of his sales. A class read It who have not appreciation for any more stimula'. ing mental diet. Ir it docs not strengthen it does not deprave. Probably readers often out grow it, but plenty sb p in to fill their places. FROM KUROPE NEWS BY THE CABLE.
