DR. CARPENTER, OCULIST AURIST, Would inform those suffering from Blindness, Deafness, Catarrh, OB DISEASES OF THE THROAT, That on account of earnest solicitations of his patients, and many other from a distance who are desirous of consulting him.but have been unable to do so on account of bad travelling, he has been induced to prolong his stay in Bangor a short time but those desirous of consulting him should do so at once. Dr. C. can refer to many patients in Bangor and ricinity who have been benefitted by treatment received from him, who do not wish their names made public, but who are willing to converse with those interested.

The Dr. can be consulted, until the aboveldate, at the BANGOR HOUSE. 43- Sec advertisement in this paper. d9 sn Notice. As I am about to leave Bangor, I must insist upon the immediate payment of all demands now due me, and I will remain at the old stand for ten days to settle all accounts.

d5 an S. B. FIFIELD. He would have them remain until their esses were decided by the two Houses wst House for itself and by a fair constitutional decision of the question he (the President) is willing to abide. A portion of the War Department clerical force is busily engaged ih preparing- a register of the volunteer forces occupied in suppressing the late rebellion.

It will contain many interesting facts, hitherto not published, and will be a complete and comprehensive history of deeds of valor performed by that branch of the service. Every engagement in which certain regiments participated, and the part they played in the great drama, will be given, but only the members of regiments who distingnished themselves, and were awarded medals of honor, will be mentioned in connection with the register. When completed, it is expected the work will consist of five volumes, covering six hundred pages. It is not stated whether it is intended for general distribution, or merely to complete the records of the War Department. A Look at the European and Rorth" American Railway from out 'West, An old citizen of Bangor, now in St.

Louis, writes upon this subject in a strain that should bring a blush to some of our townsmen. The numbers of such are few, we hope, but there are some in an apathetic state upon this great matter, so near to all our interests as an enterprising people. A less number have discovered, as the stock subscription books appear, that they shall soon move away. A still less number, some of them among our able men, lay back, waiting for their liberal and enterprising neighbors to carry this great project through, knowing their open laps must receive in full proportion of the fruits of the toil and Bweat of their fellow citizens. The following is an extract of the letter referred to In the matter of vour Kailway subscrip tion, please set me down for such sum as you consider my proportion.

It is plain enough the success of the project is vital in its influence upon the prosperity of Bangor. I wish that the people of our city could see as clearly as I think I do, the great importance the enterprise to which their attentioi called. A western city, or town, of any size, would, under such circumstances, raise the needed amount in twenty-four hours. A portion a of the people would not obstinately reluse to be benefitted, because a few others would thereby, at the same time, reap'some advantage a Iso. Such a dog in the man-eer policy as animates some men in Bangor, is a disgrace to them, and-would bring upon them the blasting indignation of any western community in which they might ati tempt such selfishness.

I hope that the eydST and pockets of these men may yet be opened. As I said, please set me down for whatever sum you think right. NEW GOODS JUST RECEIVED BY E. M. N.

To show what is said to bo the present disposition of Southerners (Virginians at least) towards northern men who go among them, the Richmond Whig endorses the following rules and regulations of intercourse, which were recently stated in a Virginia letter to the Providence Journal; We do not mean to be understood as saying that we will cover those who come with caresses, and that we will do for them wbat we will not do among ourselves abolish all those social distinctions that education, good character and gentle breeding on the one hand, and ignorance, vice ana boorislf manners on the other hand, give rise td.

Nor do we mean that we will open our hearts and our homes to all strangers indiscriminately. We simply mean that those who come on business, pleasure, or to settle among us, will be as sate and unmolested as we ourselves are in person or property. As for making companions and friends of them that will depend upon all those ordinary circumstances that regulate the relations of life. Upon this the Journal remarks with truth that northern people going South will ask no special favors. All theyjask is a fair chance, liberty of action and thought and speech, and they will take care of themselves.

A good many northern people are already settling at various points in the south. But the southerners err, if they suppose that at the present they can attract a sufficient influx of white laborers on farms to take the place of negroes. There is a great scarcity of such laborers in the north. The men who are looking to the south at all, are not men who are willing to work out by the month on the plantations. They are either men with some capital, who hope to place it well down there, or skilled mechanics, who hope for higher wages and the prospect of establishing shops, or farmers with a little money with which they wish to buy farms, as the same class have done in the west.

All these classes the south needs. All of them she should endeavor to attract. All of them she can attract if she pursues a generous policy towards them. But certainly neither of these classes, nor all combined, can take the place of the black laborers. Gov.

Orr, of South Carolina, who perceives the industrial wants of the south more clearly than other southerners, sees this fact, and tells his fellow citizens that the blacks must furnish them a large part of their agricultural labor. It is amazing that any intelligent southern man should fail to understand this. Yet many of them are still talking wildly about substituting white labor for black labor, and seem to think also that they are going to effect the change in time to secure the next crop. They do not undertake to tell us where the three or four millions of laborers required are coming from. There is really only one thing for them to do, if they mean to raise a crop the eoming year, that is, to go into the field themselves, as some have done, and also to make the best arrangements they can to secure the aid 01 the negroes.

We have no doubt there are very grave difficulties in the way of obtaining steady labor of a large part of the blacks. Many of these have a vague idea that their net born liberty consists roaming about at will, and that by giving them lands, or some other way, the government is going to enable them to live without much labor. The testimony of travelers in the south is uniform on this point. Many of the blacks are naturally enough distrustful of their old masters, and refuse to work, because they think they will be cheated out of their wages at the end of the season. The planters have not ready money enough to pay weekly or monthly, and cannot have the money until the next crop is raised.

There are therefore very serious obstacles to the desired restoration of labor. But many planters have already proved that these obstacles are not insuperable and have large gangs of men at work with contentment and industry. We hope the souih will see that her prosperity depends not merely on securing a fresh supply of white labor, but also on making available the productive force of her black labor. The New York Times says that the sum of $10,000 is to be put at the disposal of George T. Downing, for his use in representing the interests of the blacks at Washington this winter, that the colored men of Louisiana are to raise $10,000 for their delegate, and that it is proposed by the colored men in New York to send Pred Douglass with the same amount to Washington.

These delegates are to establish a bureau at the capital to obtain and disseminate information respecting the needs of their race.

In the issue of Saturday last it says A gentleman from Bangor informs us that the prospects of this enterprise have mate rially brightened since an exhibit of its affairs was published, bearing the responsible name of the Treasurer, Hon. Noah Woods. The statement coming from such authority has weight, and has inspired confidence among the capitalists of Bangor, and since that publication the subscriptions, had come to a stand still, rially swollen. The Boston Advertiser says that a meeting of the Governor and Council of Massa chusetts, a few days since, a report was adopted recommending the Legislature to authorize the Treasurer to invest $200,000 in the 6 per cent land bonds of the company, instead of the 5 per cent, bonds of Maine, in which it now stands. The'same paper also says that at a meeting of prominent citizens, by invitation of the Mayor and President of the Board of Trade of Boston, there was a general concurrence in the opinion that the Commonwealth might at this stage of affairs lend its credit to a moderate extent in aid of the railway.

It has been understood to be the opinion of many of the leading business men, that in addition to the claim of upon the State of Maine, of which Mas sachusetts consents to give the company the benefit, $800,000 of the land bonds should be taken, to insure the completion of a work of such great importance to that city and Siate. The Governor and Cr ncil, after examination, express their confidence in the enterprise, and it is urged that the present posture of business affairs, the State might properly be asked to give its, aid in supplying a part of the means for which Massachusetts is looked to. A petition to this effect will probably be presented to the Legislature. We are glad to see something tangible being done, that looks like work and progress. It is singular, surely that the Press which is generally so swift enough to condemn should have just discovered that Hon.

Noah Woods has published an exhibit of the affairs of the E. N. A. Co. so satisfactory as to change entirely the views of that paper in regard to the character of the company.

That exhibit was published in the Whig more than three weeks ago and yet within a week the Press has libelled the Directors of the Company by declaring that the whole tiling has been manipulated for the benefit of a few fancy operators, and that all the money actually handled goes to keep them in cigars and to pay their hotel bills The Bangor Whig, to create the impres sion that the Press is hostile to this enterprise, finds it much mope convenient to misrepresent the Press than to copy said. This is a fair sample of the fairness of that journal to the western part of the State. Press. Is that so 7 Well, you shall have justice, which, perhaps, you dont really want. The following are two specimens of the friendly dispositions of the Press both cut from the same number of thepaper, and less than a week ago John A.

Poor gives notice in the Bangor papers that the E. N. A. Railroad Co. a paper corporation will petition the Legislature for extension of time in which to build their read, and also for further aid from the State in the construction of said and for other purposes.

We had hoped no more humbuggery was to be practiced upon the State by this concern. This State allowed Jthree years in which to build the first section of about fifty miles. Two years of this time has been wastes! and not a blow struck. Further aid is to be asked before a single practical thing has been-done. We hope the Legislature will he wise, and hold the parties up to their first agreement.

If they commence the work in earnest next summer there will be no trouble iu getting the requisite extension the winter following! N6 other similar corporation has ever received a single dollar of State aid. This concern does not hesitate to come with its supplications for a second donation before it has begun to comply with the conditions on which the first was granted. It seems to us the whole thing has been manipulated for the benefit of a few fancy operators, and that all the money actaally handled goes to keep them in cigars und pay their hotel bills. Again in another item it says It does look a little queer, though in perfect keeping with the whole enterprise, to see this work began by an American com-Pfnj the British end, when every dollar pledged or promised to the company is contingent on the finishing and completing of this end of the line. No doubt the Press will now say it was only John A- Poor it was opposing but Mr Poor is still President of the company, still doing the enterprise' great service -and has still the confidence of an honest, honorable, and able Board of Directors.
