Hunt came near losing a val uable horse on Friday,by his breaking tbro the ice while driving on to tbe.river at the ferry way, He was got out with the assistance of the bystanders. An Irishman named Joseph T. Sullivan being intoxicated, got into an altercation on Exchange Street, on Friday, and during the tnelee, got stabbed in the leg. He could not identify the person who inflicted the wound. On the Hub. Our Boston correspondent spoke the other day about a grand peace celebration which those felloes at the hub have projected. It is one of the biggest things ever got up In this or any other country. We trust Mr. Gilmore will not Hre in his efforts until the success of the undertaking is made a certainty, and when the wheel of time brings us to the 15th, 16th and 17th days of June, may we be there to see and hear. The idea is an axle-o nt one, and if the solid men of Boston fail to give the required aid to carry it out, no pun-lsh-ment will be too severe for them. Fibs in Cherbteield. Mr. Haynes of the Ellsworth stage, informs us that the barn belonging to John Barber, in Cherryfield, was destroyed by fire last Thursday night, together with ten tons of hay and six head of cattle. No insurance. The fire was communicated by sparks from the chimney of the house. The Methodists of Waterville are building a fine church. They are liberally aided by R. B. Dunn, Esq.

The time for holding the State Convention of the Grand Army was erroneously stated in our paper Saturday. The Convention is to be h eld in Augusta on the 20th inst. It will be an occasion of much more than ordinary interest. Marine Disaster. A dispatch informs ns that the barque Bride, of London, Irwin, master, was wrecked six miles East of Cutler, Maine, night of tbe 1st. during the thick snow storm. Was deal loaded, bound from St. John for Londonderry. Sails and rigging saved and taken to Cutler. Hull breaking up. Cargo will probably be lost, Our Astronomical Observer has seen the Grecian Bend. By the aid of a powerful glass it was first discovered over the Western hills and far away. Tbe astronomer gives his opinion that it must have been visible to the naked eye at the same time in Fifth Avenue (Gotham) and op Beacon Street, (Hub). The planet is unlika any other heretofore discovered, in that it is in form a cross between deformed humanity and that classical and soul delighting pattern of grace, the eamel. As the son travelled P. M., the planet was distinctly Inspected by tha nude oculars of out artist. It is not a fixed star, nor a brilliant shootiBg star or comet. It is eccentric in its coarse. It trsveleth not with the sun at present, 'but contrariwise. Its destination is eastard ho The theory of the French philosophers is that It shineth not for all, hut for the god of fashion. .Our firmamental surveyor gazed upon its multiform proportions till it crossed the zenith at the point of the Customouse, took another inclination to the eastard another bend forard, and was finally lost to view in the constellation of more goodly planets, and sank in the horizon in the vi cinity of the point marked Quoddy Head. We see by the Belfast Journal, that lively Capt. of that city, has recently caught aud forwarded to Boston, two tons of smelts, with a single line, two hooks attached. We could have hardly believed the fish story, had we seen it in any other paper. ST. Andrews Lodge. Tbe following of. fleers were installed in St. Andrews Lodge, F. and A.

Still greater was his surprise to find that the animal moved out of the thills, leaving the sleigh behind. On examination he found the thugs bad been out apart above the whif-fletree, and the horse was practically cut free from the sleigh. ' . Further examination showed the marks of teeth i i the leather, and the faithful wag of the faithful dogs tall, aa he stood looking at, his masters predicament, showed that the dog it waa who was the guilty party. The dog is exceedingly . attached to .. the horse, always following him, when harness ed, and remaining at his side in the stall. He noticed that the horse had baited at the place where he had spent a night, and evi dently desired to unharness him that he might again receive the shelter and hospital ity of the neighboring stable. Joel Giay, Esq., has subscribed $40,-000, to the stock of the Somerset Railroad, in addition to the $10,000 he has previously subscribed, ThiB brings the subscription up to half a million and an assessment will probably be at once made.

Previous to this, a lot of land,.situated on the southeasterly slope of Thomas Hill, and commanding an extended and delightful view, waa received from Mr. James Smith, Jr., of this city. The folio wipg action waa taken r Voted, That the managers most gratefully accept from Mr. James Smith, Jr., the noble gift of a large lot of land, situated on James, Ohio, aDd Highland Streets, containing nearly two acres, as an eligable building sito. They are also gratified to learn that Mr. Pitcher finds the above location eminently suited to his long contemplated pur pose of erecting a new bouse for the Asylum Association, which is to be styled The Bangor Childrens Home. Mr. Pitcher, true to his promise, immediately msde preparations for building, and on thq second day of September, the cornerstone was laid with appropriate ceremonies, and dedicated to the memory of Mrs. Sarah March Pitcher, through whose bequest it is erected. Aud what more fitting memorial for one whose brief life was filled with gentle and charitable deeds I It is now expected the new house and grounds will be completed during the coming Bummer, when we shall rely upon the generosity of our friends for aid in furnishing it in a neat and suitable manner. The meetings of tbe managers b&ve been fully attended, and an unusual degreo of interest manifested. Mrs. E. J. Treat and Mrs. John Bradbury have retired from the Board during the year. Mrs. Bradbury was one of the original members, and always manifested an untiring interest, laboring zealously and faithfully till failing health compelled her to resign. In September the managers very reluctantly accepted the resignation of their Secretary, Mrs. E. L. DureD, who had proved herself a very valuable officer. There are connected with the institution twenty-nine children, and four assistants, viz. matron, cook, nursery girl, and seam- stress. j in months of February and March, during the temporary absence c the matron, several attempts were made to fire ttaehon.a. which occasioned much anxiety and alarm. Proving to be one of the children, she was removed to the Almshouse, and afterwards, through the kindness and interest of Mr. Pitcher, who took her into his own family for several weeks, placed at the Reform School for Girls, in Lancaster, Mass It has been necessary to call a physician but a few times, and our thanks are due to Dr. Field for his great kindness and attention, gratuitously rendered ; also to Dr. Morison, who was called during the illness of Dr. Field, and to Dr. Harlow for furnishing needful medicines Iu February, the children enjoyed the rare pleasure of a sleigh-ride, through the kind-ess of Capt. Chas. Sanford, and on their re turn a bonntiful collation, prepared by Mrs, Orin Shaw, Mrs. George Lancaster, and others. At the Hammond Street 'Sunday School excursion in July, twenty of the children were furnished with tickets and provisions ; and in August, they spent a delightful day with Mr. and Mrs. James Robinson, of Car mel. Going and returning in the cars, they were indebted to Mr. Small and Mr. Pitman, for their fare and other kind attentions. They were present at one of the matinees of the Penobscot Musical Association, by invitation of Mr. Duren, and in December, were invited to a supper for the Missionary Society connected with the Hammond Street Church. For ten years, Mrs. G. W. Merrill has provided a Christmas Tree for the children, and furnished each child with a present, This year it was filled with useful articles, books, toys, Christmas cakes and candies. One of the presents is especially worthy of mention a bed quilt, pieced together by a little girl, but nine years of age, Mist Julia Strickland, and qnllted by her grandmother, already past her three score years and ten Mr. J. P. Tuoker invited the children to his store Christmas morning, where a variety of Christmas presents awaited them, and in the evening they were made happy by an Invitation to the Christmas Tree for the Unitarian Sunday School, where, among other things, Santa Claus delighted them with the gift of a complete set of The Little Prudy "Books, and The Dotty Dimple Stories. Among the first donations of the year was a check for one hundred dollars from Mr Jeremiah Curtis, of New York, and as there was no pressing need of its immediate use, it was appropriated to the fund, A very nice Wheeler & Wilson sewiDg maohine, from a benevolent gentleman in the city, whose name is withheld at his own desire, was another most acceptable gift, Indeed, it had become so necessary that an effort had been made to purchaee one, and the sum of seventeen dollars and twenty-five cents collected, which will now be approprL a ted tq some cities equally necessary convenience. A few little girls on Cedar Street, held fair, the proceeds of which, twenty-seven dollars, were seat to the Treasurer In the hope it might add somewhat to the comfort of the children at The Home. This is the third successive year that aid has been received from these little girls. We have received very acceptable gifts from the following firms in Boston: Messrs. Jordan, Harah & Co., O. F. Hovey & Co. Hoqghton, Perkins & Co., and A. Hamilton & Co. - .-w Besides these, we are indebted to many of th merchant of cur own city, who not only remember os in the way of gifts, bat deduct from titeir usual prices, when we purchase of 9 . i t Fifidiag sa .effort Jaost be made to replenish ofit, frlllng ftiaS It Va decided to make an ppsl to ton? of our citizens pn tha 4ay juroaaAfag Thanksgiving.

About-Ji barrels of potatoes, one barrel of crackers, sixty pounds of sugar, several pounds of tea, forty pounds of buckwheat with syrup to go with it, fifty pounds of codfish, a bushel of beaus, a bag of meal, several boxes of raisins, several boxes of grapes, a box of starch, a box of soap, aud a very nice chopping machine, a nice lot of yarn, worsted goods, cotton goods, cotton flannel, hoop skirts, nnder garments, and sundries. Also, provisions for Thanksgiving Day, consisting of turkeys, chickens, oysters, mackerel, cranberries, squashes, and other vegetables. These nokbeing sufficient for the winter months, soma gentlemen kindly interested themselves, and a Levee was held December first, which realized the handsome sum of two hundred and forty dollars. In connection with this there was handed to us a ten dollar bill from Mr. George M. Weston, of Augusta, who, unable to be presont, manifested his interest in this way. We remember gratefully the no less acceptable donations from month to month of household articles, clothiDg, milk, and in their season fruits and vegetables, from kind and benevolent ladles. We cannot Tefrain from expressing our thanks to Mrs. W. B. Hayford for her continual remembrance of our needs. To Mrs Ellis for the amount of knitting she has done, and to other ladies who have assisted us in sewing and knitting we are very grateful. Tbe amount received from subscribers, as appears in the Treasurers report, ia five hundred and eighteen dollars and twenty-five cents. An increase of one hundred and forty-three dollars and seventy-five cents over the previous year ; but surely not more than half what we might reasonably expect. The expenses of the year have averaged early two hundred dollars a month, and this with careful economy. To meet thdse, the Treasurer has been drawing from a fund of one thousand dollars, which was collected some years ago by former manager and placed at interest, but which is now nearly exhausted. So it is evident that even after the interest of the en dowment fund becomes available, unless the number of yearly subscribers is largely increased, we shall still be dependent in a measure upon tbe charity of our friends. And is it not a benefit to a community to have in its midst an Institution appealing to its charity, where those who take pleasure doing for others may see the -result of their efforts 7 We feel confident that the citizens of Bangor will take pride in sustaining the managers in their endeavor to make this Institu tion one of the most useful of its kind and an honor to our city.
