An order was passed in the Common Council for the city to release claim in liquors se. zed by the City Marshal belonging to the late E F Stetson, for which a suit is now pending in the S. J. Court; and the same was laid on the table in the Board of Aldermen. A communication was received from the President of the S & N A Railway Co., ac-cepting the offer of the City to sell said Co. the Old Burying Ground lot for $12,000 two-thirds of said lot to be conveyed to said Co- and one-third to the B & P Railroad Co., undivided; and orders were passed aothoriz log the City Treasurer to execute deeds of conveyance to said companies respectively, of said proportions of said lot- ' The report of the Committee on Finance of the appropriations for municipal purposes the present peer, wet accepted; but the Be-olve accompanying the same, was laid on the table in the Common Council, where the report waa first presented. Adjourned to Thursday evening, Oct 7, 7i oclock. Dedication of the 'Childrens Home- The beautiful edlfloe which has been erficted at a cost of $25,000, through the beneficence of the late Mrs. Sarah March Pitcher, upon land donated by our esteemed fellow citizen James Smith, Jr. and which has received a noble and gener erous endowment fund through the subscriptions of our citizens being completed and ready for occupancy, was dedicated yesterday t the purposes for which it was de tirntd. At an early hour in the afternoon person began to drop into the house, and at throe oclock, the hour at which the services were appointed to be held, the spacious building was completely packed by an interested gathering of our best citizens who bad come to show their interest in the welfare of the little homeless ones who are henceforth to receive Buch kind care and attention under the charge of the noble society which has inaugurated and, after many years of toil and struggle, perfected the grand charity which is Bangors highest boast and noblest monument. The Board of Managers and as many others as the room would contain having assembled in tho I large living room, his Honor Mayor Thurston called to order, and called upon Rev. P. T. Hazelwood to offer prayer. After the prayer, a choir consisting of Miss Clark, Mrs. Wasgatt and Messrs. Merrill and Torrens, sang the hymn coma mencing Make channels for the streams of lovo Where they may broadly run ; And love has overflowing streams To fill them everyone. Mayor Thurston, by request of Mr James S-mith, Jr., road a note from the latter gentleman in which with his best wishes for tho future prosperity and usefulness of the institution he presented the Board of Mana. gers with a deed of the lot npon which it was erected ; and the note and deed was then handed to tho President of the Board, Mrs. C. C. Barrett. Mr. P. W. Pitchor, of Boston, the late husband of her whose munificont hand has established upon a fine foundation an institution whose influence for good shall reach out with years far beyond the time when we who looked upon the services of today shall have been forgotten, came forward, and addressing the President, Eaid : A little more than a year ago we met here to lay the corner stone of this Childrens Home., We have now asked your presence that we may transfer it to your possession completed. Before doing so, we wish to acknowledge thenoble generosity of Mr. James Smith, Jr. who gave this beautiful lot for the purpose of this building. The giver deserves your grateful remembrance. Our thanks are also due to Mr. H. W. Hartwell. Architect, Messrs. Pattee fc Goodwin, Contractor, Mr. Daniel R. Palmer, who had the mason work in charge, Messrs. Leighton fc Co., Messrs. Wood, Bishop & Co., Mr. Timothy T. Cates and many others who have been actively engaged in the work, for the careful and thorough manner in which it has been performed. To General S. F. Eersey, we are indbted for personal attention and aid on the grounds ; and we are under great obligation to Dr. S. B. Morrison for constant assistance since the work began. We would also express our appreciation of the liberality of the citizens of Bangor who have so well endowed your corporation. You may well be proud of them Their response' to yonr calls have ever been prompt and generous. And in this building, while we have studied for convenience and utility, we have sought to make it a pleasant and attractive object of interest to them, for we know that your success will be in proportion to the lively support which they give you. ;! You will notice upon the walls of the reception room a portrait of Mrs. S. F. Her-sey, which we have solicited because of personal attachment as well as because of her great interest for many years in your institution. We believe its presence will be cheering to you in your trials and difficulties. Please accept these papers the title to the property with the assurance of our continued regard for your prosperity for while we are deeply interested in your work, other and more tender feelings are associated witKtbe Home. To ns it is consecrated as a memorial of her in whose name the gift is made, and we fondly believe it will always be a fit memorial of her life, in lifting the young and innocent from want and suffering to the joy of a home of love. Please convey our thanks to your board of Managers and the other officers of your institution for courtesies received during the progress of this work. The building is in your full possession. Mr. Pitcher then placed in the hands of thr President a title deed of the property, beautifully engraved on parchment, and handsomely bound in Morocco and gold. The conveyance is made in fall to the Society, for the purposes set forth in their charter, and in an additional act, of Legislature amending the same, with the stipulated condition that the building should be kept fully insured against accident or damage by fire or lightning, and that any such damage should be immediately repaired, and should the house be destroyed it shall be rebuilt and still remain a memorial of her who furnished the means for its erectiOD. In behalf of the Managers, Rev. C. C. Everett arose and , replied to the donors, and accepted the deeds conveying the property. We regret that circumstances prevented our taking full notes of his beautiful, touching and elegant remarks. He alluded with deep feeling to the beautiful character of her whose kindness and liberality had been the occasion of the assemblage of today. Alluding to reference made by Mr. Piteher to the portrait of the lamented and esteemed Mrs. Hersey, which adorned the walls of the reception room, he said he was happy to see by its side the beautiful portrait of the pure and noble woman whose name would hereafter be insepera-bly connected with this Childrens Home as their patron and benefactor, and he indulged the hope and belief that the sight of those lovely and sweet features would do much toward elevating the little ones who should grow up beneath the protecting roof of this dwelling, up to a level of her own purity and gentleness and goodness. And he would, for the Managers thank her memory : and, - might he not be allowed to add, her bright spirit which he could hut believe hovered over them and blessed with her approving smile the exercises of the day. He also returned his thanks to Mr. Smith who had so generously bestowed the land, to Mr. Pitcher who had so faithfully and generously carried out the wishes and intentions of his late associate, and had watched over the work with snoh careful attention, to the citizens who had so liberally endowed it, and to all who had been instrumental in bringing the work to completion. He was grateful that his last public act in Bangor should be one which gave him so mnch pleasure, and which would so long dwell in his memory. While Mr. Everett was speaking, a gentleman handed Mrs. G K Jewett, Treasurer, of the Board of Managers, a one hundred dollar greenback, with the explanation that It was a present from Hon. Lewis Barker of Stetson, in aid of the funds of the Home. 8 W Sawyer also sent in a large and handsomely framed Photograph of the old Orphan Asylam building as a memento of the past. The announcement of the presents by Mayor Thurston was received with a feeling of pleasure by the audience as yrell as by the managers. - The choir then sang the hymn commencing: Scorn not the slightest word hr deed Nor deem it void of power ; Theres frait in each wind-wafted seed Waiting Us natal hour. Rev. G W Field then offered a beautiful and touching prayer, after which the services were concluded with a benediction by Rev. Dr. Pond. a subsequent meeting of the Board of Managers, it was voted to accept tho property under the prescribed conditions. It was also voted to allow Mr. Pitcher to have charge of and control the grading of the grounds, making any improvements therein which he deemed advisable, the same being done without expense to tbe society. Mr. James Smith, Jr., bis wife and his two children were also vojed into tho Society as life members. We are requested to say in this connection that although all the subscriptions made have gone into the endowment fund of the Society, the entire expense of the erection of tho building having been borne by Mr. Pitcher our citizens have yet work to do to make tbe institution all it is intended, and to support the full capacity of the Home,1 endowment fund being as yet not sufficiently large to afford sufficient income to meet, in full the expenses. Until this ismade so our citizens should see to it that it does not lack for aid, and by their contributions keep up to and in advance of tbe demands made upon it. We have n. fears but that this will be the case, but only staie the fact3 lest it might be erroneously thought that ample funds were already secured and nothing more remained to be done. THE BUILDING. The new building which has been dedicated, and which will be occupied during tbe week, is a handsome brick structure two stories in heighth, with Mansard roof, maku ing it equal to three full stories. It is fin ished in a neat and tasteful manner, with a handsome porch over the entrance, covering the driveway. Entering the spacious hall, on the left is a convenient room to be used as tbe office, a reception room, handsomely finished and neatly furnished, the wails bearing the portraits of Mrs. Sarah March Pitcher and Mrs. Gen. S. F. Hersey. Passing through tLis room we enter the living room, or tbe sitting room of the children, a neat, spacious room looking out upon the east and south, with a commanding view of the whole city. To the west of this and divided by the back ball is the nursery, which can be united with the living room by throw, iog open the large double doors iu each. Adjoining the nursery is a convenient bed room, and further along, leading from the hall, are tbe childrens cloak rooms. On the right of the main or hall, or on the northeast corner of the main floor is the diningroom, very neatly furnished, and connected with the kitchen, a large room, fitted up with every convenience, and with which is connected a spacious and convenient pantry A lavatory and passage-way occupy the remnant of this floor. On the second, tp proacbed by a spacious and easy staircase are the room of the matron with bed-room makiDg off from it, three spacious dormitories, lavatories, bathiDg rooms, writing-room, large closets for bedding, &c., and, over tbe front entrance, a neat and convenient room, fitted up with book cases on each side, for a library. Quite a large number of books, suited to children of tender years, already adorn Us Bhelve3, and, we doubt not, Merry Christmas will see a large addition made to the number. A room for tbe seamstress occupies a portion of this floor. In tho upper story are eight large airy vnd beautiful dormitories, supplied, as are all the others, with neat iron bedsteads. We noticed several rooms fitted up in a neat manner, with larger beds than those in tbe children's sleeping rooms, and learned with pleasure that they were provided for those who, having outgrown the Home, and gone out into the basy wurld of fife, should come back to visit their old home once more-The idea is a a beautiful one, and years hence, who can tell how many will fondly return to spend a night under the roof where they have spent so many happy nights in their younger days, and received those words of admonition and advice which had shaped their future life. Descending to the cellar, we found one of the finest cellars imaginable, blown out of the solid ledge and with cement walls and floor, it hardly the appearance of a cellar. It is divided into wash room, with stationary tubs and water ready to turn in by merely turning a cock, laundry, furnace and coal rooms and cellar. Three immense cemeut cisterns, heaping full and running over, supply all the water which the house requires, while pipes and improved water works carry it to all parts of the house. In the yard is a fine fiag staff with the stars and stripes floating in the breeze. We noticed also that the miniature planing mill exhibited by Messrs. Dole & Fogg on Centennial Day, has been deposited by them in the yard to be used as a play bouse. We understand thT family will take possession of their new house this week. Police Court Wednesday, October 6. Richard Nally and Humphry Callahan for drunkenness, were each fined $3 and costs, and committed to jail for want of scrip. The great tidal wave that passed along our coast the other night was a curious phenomenon. It swept up the Penobscot with great rapidity. A captain who was laying at the wharf at Palmers Mill below here, says he heard the wave coming several seconds before it reached his vessel. When it did reach it, the craft rose five or six feet in as many minntes. It swept np with such force that it carried the lumber away from several booms. Palmer & Co lost $4,000 Sargent $8,000, Stearns $3,000, and others smaller amounts. The lumber was carried up stream, and afterwards was widely scattered by tbe ebb of tbe tide, lnone instance the water came in with such violence as to sink a boom, letting oat all the logs, when the logs from another boom passed in and were caught by the boom when it rose again. The exebange bad been made with such ease that the mistake was discovered with some astonishment. h-Thb Freshet resulting from the storm of Sunday and Monday has proved very disastrous in all parts of this State. The storm was probably more severe in the western and northern parts of the State than in this immediate vicinity. The small streams were overflowed with great rapidity, allowing no opportunity to save mouable property within reach of the river. All the tributaries of the Penobscot have been pouring their torrents into the main river since the storm. Till last night the river had reached a mark higher than that of last spring, the rise at Oldtown being about nine feet. Tnesday night the Sunkbaze and Corporation Booms were carried away, and abont ten million of logs were let loose. Yesterday morning the river at this point was crowded with drifting lumber. It is estimated that over five millions have passed below. Most of them will be saved, as large crews have been sent down. The loss, however, will he immense, and all our lumber men. are involved. On nearly all the small rivers entering the Penobscot we hear of great damage to the crops that were being harvested, large amounts being carried off by the flood. Corn, grain, pumpkins, &c., &c., cover the surfaoe of the river above Oldtown. On the river, we hear of no damage to the bridges or other property save lumber. Rev. S. D. Church was settled over the F. W. B. Society in this city, some four weeks, and they object to settling another (as indicated by our paragraph of yesterday) as long as he proves so acceptable. We1' have for sale a few copies of the Whig containing the late Centennial ser vices. Of the twenty-seven indictments pre seated by the Grand Jury of York Coumy at its present session, eleven are for liquor selling. Tbe law seems to be enforced to some extent there. Tbe Augusta correspondent of the Bosi ton Advertiser, says the Governor has determined to nominate Hon. Lot M. Morrill to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Mr. Fessenden in the Senate. It is estimated that there are in this State 40,000 soldiers and seamen who were engaged in the late war, and who are en titled to receive the testimonials of honor certifying that the holder has seen service and has been honorably discharged therefrom. Fifteen thousand of these testimonials have already been issued from the Adjutant Ginerala offico. One hundred and seventy-five of the number have been issued to seamen. On Saturday, at South China, Wm. C. Kingsbury was tried under the liquor law and convicted of being a common seller. Tbe same evening the Second Baptist Church was set on fire and burned. As several mom bers of the church were instrumental in getting him convicted, suspicions fell upon Kingsbury as the incendiary, Monday morning Kingsbury, John Kitchen and J. B. Mitchell were arrested and taken to Augusta for trial. All three plead not guilty, but were held for trial, which takes place Wednesday. For want of bail, all three wore committed to jail, says tbe Press. It has been expected that tho address before the old Kennebec Agricultural Society, at the annual exhibition in Readfield this week, would be given by Gen. O. O Howard, who is a native of Leeds, in that connty; but a despatch just received from the General, states that Bickness in his family will prevent him from fulfilling the engagement. His place will be supplied by Col. Thomas S Lang of Yassalborough. A very valuable history of Augusta and the interior of the State is shortly to be is sued. It has been compiled by the Hon. James W. North, of Augusta, who has devoted all of his leisure time for the past ten years to it. Under appropriate headings, the history will give a detailed account of the settlement of the place, the various settlements on the Kennebec River, and of the rise and progress of enterprises engaged in by the people, political events and sketches of the eminent men who helped shape them. Judge Ndrth has been for several years an active member of the Maine Historical Society, and has taken special pains to make this history trustworthy. Littells Living Age, No 1323, for the week ending Oct. 9th, contains Tho Feast of Belshazzar, a prize poem, by Edwin Arnold; Childrens Litorature, by Miss Yonge, author of John Halifax, Gentleman; three articles on the Stowe Byron controversy, from the Spectator, Examiner and Saturday Review, respectively; Lady Duff Gordon and her Works, Macmillans Magazine; Of Unconsciousness and Annihilation, FraserB Magazine; Mrs. Merridews Fortune, Corn-hill' Magazine; A County Family, part xi, Chambers Journal; The Future of France, and Forthcoming Changes in European Politics, Fall Mall Gazette ; besides short articles and poems. The Freshet in the Androscoggin. The rise in the Androscoggin River waB very sudden, and the storm must have been very severe there. Tbe Lewiston Journal says the amount of rain which fell is well indicated by the rapid rise in the river. The tempest closed abQUt 6 p. m. with a flood. Our streets were drowned out. Goff street, Auburn, was a lake for a period, there being no drainage. The Androscoggin began ris ing gradually Monday morning, increasing its volume rapidly for 24 hours, and reaching a height unprecedented for rapidity and rarely equalled in degree. The total rise of tbe river from Monday at 10 a- m., to Tuesday at 10 a.m., was six feet. It is probably ten years since so high water was seen. From sunrise through the forenoon the river was full of logs, it being reported that several booms had broken up tbe river. The loss of logs will be large several millions no doubt. On what firms the loss wil fall is not known at this writing. Messrs. S. R. Bearcc & Co., and the Lewiston Steam Mill Co., will lose quite largely. These firms have large gangs of men employed in catching logs at Lisbon and even as far down as tide waters. The river was well sprinkled all Tuesday forenoon with floating pumpkins and cornstalks, indicating that the damage to intervale land up river is great. On such lands farmers must have lost considerably. It was amusing to witness the efforts of urchins and others in hauling in these floating crops. On the river banks were frequent piles of bright yellow pumpkins with interlocked cornstalks, indicating that there are a good many more people in at the harvest than al the planting. All the mills on the lower level the Continental, Lewiston, Little Androscoggin, Cobb & Co.s Woolen Mill, Lewiston Falls Manufacturing Co.s Mill, were shut down Tuesday morning on account of back water, Tbe roof of tbe Continental Mill is damaged about $400 by the wind, which tore off the tinning. All the mills on the upper level the Hill, 1 and 2; Bates I and 2, Androscoggin, Lincoln, &c., were running as usual. It is conclusive evidence of the ability of the Franklin Companys Improvements on their water power, that despite this unforeseen and great freshet, the rise in the river has not done a cents worth of damage to our cotton mills, to our dams, or to our canals. Tbe rise in the brook on tbe old foundry privilege in Auburn was each as to overflow the territory on the left of the dam, gullying out the earth at the foot of the high fill on the Maine Central Railroad and causing quite a slide of earth not enough, however, to prevent the rnnnlng of trains as usual. The top of a new dam just built at tbis privilege by Mr. Tibbetts, was partially carried off and tbe slaughter house below flooded. Tbe basement of Fullers shoe factory. Auburn, was flooded, and the engine and boiler submerged. The New York Times, which is ohary of its compliments. Says that Harvard Divinity School isto be congratulated upon having secured the servkses of Rev. Charles CarrollEverett. ' W,;-.. . KoikABOtJT the JfijjoD. -The Portland Argos says at Kendalls Kills and at Somerset-Kill s every log has gone down river. The loss at these two ' points 6annotbe less than $60,000. lQOjnea are thrown out of employment. At Kendalls Kills J Winslow Jones loses corn factory, in addition to one at Farm-ington. - . At Waterville, General Franklin Smith loses all his logs, and his new saw mill is damaged. The Sabasticook river eleven feet in five hours. The boom at Kendall's Mills baB been swept away, with tbe whole stock of logs, carrying with it several of the supports of the piers of the toll bridge at that place, rendering it unsafe. A culvert at Skowhegan washed out, delaying trains on the Kenneboc roal till a train could be sent from Augusta. An Augusta correspondent of the Lewiston Journal says the steamboat storehouse there was carried off. The wharves are 8 feet under water, and the river is still rising, A large number of logs are being swept away. More rain fell during the thirty-six hours the storm continued than has for years. The drowning of J M Thompson and Mr Freble of Auburn, at Gorham, was a melancholy affair. They were endeavoring to get machinery from the mill when the portion in which they were was carried off. They were in the rear of the mill, when that portion started and was carried off. They must have been killed instantly, as they were not seen after the mill fell until their bodies were rescued on Tuesday about one oclock says the Argus. . Letter from Belfast. October 6th, 1869.
