Biddeford Union and Eastern Journal (Newspaper) - December 1, 1854, Biddeford, MaineLakes. The first in order is Lako urn a go about ten Miles Loni. The next above this i Richardson a Mako connected with 1 this by a River some air Milea Long to follow its crooked course. The rarer takes the ii am of andr Scoggin and is not navigable for boats. At Tho Bead of this River and the outlet of Richardson s Lunko is a data and a Large Camp with u Crew of men to take charge of it under the direction of Apt. Shaw who is ready to accommodate Fisher men and does it to their Salish Actium. Then we find Richardson s Lako about fun Trimn Uultt from one extreme Point to the other. The next Atill above this is the Lake Noblr called or it like it is the larg thit of nil. Being about seven teen Miles. Hero at the outlet of this Lake into Richardson s is a great dam ind a Large Crew of men to work on it and Crha s us ten thousand dollars has been expanded hero. Tho object of these dams is to keep Back the water in the lakes tilt such time As it is wanted to run the logs Down through Tho since Way from one p Odo the other. Then i addition to the three lakes we Havo enumerated there Are several other smaller lakes and Ponds and there is it present and will to for Many years to coins a Largo Buni Ness carried on in this wild Section traversed by these lakes and Ponds but from the specimens of lumber we have Sean on our rout we do not think much of the Quality of the lumber and when this is Riff we should not think the land Worth one cent per acre. List these Beautiful lakes will to Tho resort of the ardent Angler for Ages and Genera Lions to come As the a and Are extended through such a vast extent of Inland Waters it will be absolutely impossible even to Oatch them All out or even to Nolue Plum numbers much and w3 Auy to All anglers who Tuko Delight in throwing the Bright Fly go to Richardson s Lake and a sure to fish in croat like for we Are Safe in saying tins is the greatest place for Trout fishing in Tho new in land states and perhaps in the world. I have seen a barrel caught by three men in the Tourso of three Days fishing an j one string of ten Trout weighing forty pounds. Some of them i was told would weigh about seven pounds and was assured it a no uncommon thing to take Trout weighing soon pounds and they arc not the Lake Trout like those caught in Moose head like which Are not Worth cooking alter they Are caught but Are All the pure spotted Salmon Trout. Having said whal to Havo and recorded Tho same by the Way Side in our Camp amidst singing and merry Tulk and in tue utmost Huste we doubtless have undo Many errors but if so they were not intentional and we shall not have much More to say As our Papy Aro to leave Early in the morning or As soon As our guides arrive with our baggage and our men with the carriages who Are to come up from Bethel for us.

Friday morning dec. 1, 54. Clayton on americanism. Hon. Juhn m. Clayton at a recent Mau meeting in Delaware City delivered a Long mid Ehn Patent address in exposition of the principle Ami vindication of Trio objects of the american party from a report of which we extract the following " i came Here ton Lay said or c.," for the purpose f stating How far i was willing los ustain the new party organization known As the american party in this state. I Havo attended but a single Wjk i tical meeting this year and that was a meeting held in this town t y a Smail number of the old whig party which determined by a very decided vote that no whig Tiok i should be run in this stale at the approaching election. The reasons for adopting that Resolution were i they fully a Ives the principal pne being thar the whigs of the other counties of the state had refuted to form any ticket or to join in electing any whigs ate ticket what lever. This was the result of a state of i thins i Well understood Here. There were l Mil enough whigs in the slate to offer any treasonable Prospect of electing a whig ticket. We Are left therefore to choose but Ween the american and the democratic putties old party lines Are to a great ext obliterated. The american ticket is a Nadu up of inert of Ritli Tho ancient Par lies. 1 he democratic ticket excludes All but democrats. On the 4th of last month the americans met at the Capitol of the state and formed a platform upon which they have or nixed their new party. It is Liberal and fair. It proclaims the principle of religious toleration in the words of the Constitution itself. There is no bigotry no proscription to be found in it. It leaves All men to won dip god according to the die talks of their own consciences proclaims no religious test for office and asserts Liberty of conscience Freedom of thought and Freedom of speech As constituting the very basis of the new organization. It denies the right of aliens to vote without naturalization and proclaims the doctrine that americans should Rule their own country. It welcomes All virtuous and Good men Emi Grain irom foreign countries to i or shores to seek an Asylum from oppression among us. Though i was not present at the time the resolutions were adopted yet they meet with my most Hearty concurrence and approbation. Oil these principles i was wilting to net Ami am Yel willing to act but i never was a member of what has been called the native american Patty or of the know Noth ing society a. It is More commonly called. I know Thero Are Many eminent men in this country for whom 1 have great respect who Are member of each of the latter. The present governor elect of 1 Emi Sylva Ilia who is personally known to me As one of the most estimable and Able men in the country is universally believed to be a member of the know nothing order and it is said owes i election in a great degree 10 their votes. A better Man could not in my opinion have been selected for the of Liee. I know not upon what authority it is stated that the late president of the United states it a member of the know nothing or Der. Hut t do know that a number of the most intelligent and patriotic men in the county have adopted the principles and joined the society of this secret Paity. I know too that in this state a very great number of gentlemen of High standing and acknowledged patriotism from the tanks of both the whig and democratic parties Are believed to be among the members of Tiu order of United americans. Whatever Inay to the principle of the know Noth ing of Oiher states we Are bound to be Lieve that the principles of the order in Del aware Are in perfect accordance both with the letter and spirit of the resolutions adopted in Delaware nit the 4th of october be pause they were present in great numbers at the meeting held on that Day assisted in the formation of the platform itself and it was adopted after Lull deliberation with out one dissenting voice. We have reason therefore to know if there be anything pro bigoted or unprincipled among the know nothings of other states it is not to be found in the Creed of the party principles of the Amer Iconis of Delaware. I concur in the sentiment expressed by Lien. Washington that44 it is contrary to the h i icy of this govern input to appoint foreign ers to Otloe to the exclusion of native born i do not moan by this that a for Eigner should never to appointed to office. 1 mean that other circumstances being equal the Ain Elican outfit to be preferred and that was the opinion of Washington. But there Are Many foreigners in this coun try for whom 1 would not hesitate to vote and to illustrate my meaning i now Lake leave to say that As the senatorial term of James Shields of Illinois is about to expire if i had a Hundich rotes to cast in the election of the senator of that state i would throw them All for James Shields such is my opinion of that Man. Hut if another Janch Shields equally worthy patriotic and Able were to prevent Tii Moll us his opponent being born an american on the soil hero i should prefer him to the foreigner though a naturalized citizen. If any Man differ from that opinion he is at perfect Liberty to do so by. I do not Efty him his claims to True american and patriotic feeling. I shall not enlarge upon this subject for my views have already been publicly expressed. You understand me therefore fellow Citison a standing on the platform adopted by the americans at Dover on the 4th Day of Tail month and no other which in any delve con Lints with it. I will not sup port for office a Man who claims to to a native american unless he plants himself aug noon that platform. If he seeks my of he mint do it by professing my principles. He must Tell me that some other party besides the american party Here has nominated him for the office. He must come out plainly and say that Houks sup port on the principles of the americans at the Capitol when they met last month publicly in state convention. If he asks the support of Tho american party he has no right to accept without our consent a nomination from another party professing principles which we As american have never adopted. At ibis ii is when think there in far More real danger than he Ever existed be fore a the Oralo upon mailers of political intercut to Thoin an american citizens and to die noun try at Large. Even California has sent Delegate to this convention. The strangers in town who Aeten to be members of in Aro among the beat men of Tho country and create a Strong Impre Aaion in their favor from their general intelligence order to briefly mid unexceptionable Demeanour. In is said that one of the objects of this meet ing is the nomination of a candidate for the presidency in 1856. I do not believe any such nomination will be made this year or that Ilia contemplated by any Large num Ber of delegates to make one at this time. New York new England the South North and weal Are All repro Aenied Here by men of National sentiment and character it looks Loua a if Providence had Interpol and to raise up a body of pure and True Inen to give a wac and patriotic direction to the government.

Gen Canrobert sends officially to the French minister of War Dales to oct. 22, in which he states that the French approaches towards the Walls of Sebastopol continue to Advance agreeably with his previous plans of working but the difficulties met with Are two fold first in the Rocky nature of the ground upon which the parallels have to be formed and second the extremely heavy calibre of the ship artillery which the russians have mounted profusely upon the Walls against which the French have t Only to oppose their 68 Pounders and 12 Inch mortars. This fully explains the de Lay in the Progress of the siege. On the night of the 20lh the enemy made an attempt to Piko the French guns but failed signally whatever russians did enter the batteries being killed. The losses of the French Are not so great As might have been expected and their wounded Aro All sent to constantinople where Hospi Iala Are in effective condition.
