Here at tie outlet of this Lake into Richardson a a a great Daw and a Largo Crew of men to work on it and pc run its Over ten thousand dollars has been expanded Bere. The object of these dams is to keep Back the water in the lakes till such time As it is wanted to in the Loga Down through Tho Aluce Way from one jew of a a Tho other. Then he addition to Tho three lakes we Havo enumerated there Are several other smaller a a i came her j to Day a said or c.,&Quot for the Puijs a if stating How far i was willing la sustain the new party organization known As the american party in this stale. I Havo attended but a single a a Lilica meeting this year and that was a meeting held in this town to a Small number of the old whig party which determined by a very decided Vole that no whig ticket should be run in this state at the approaching election. The reasons for adopting that Resolution were then fully Given tie principal pne being lakes and Ponds and there is at present and a Bat the whigs of the other counties of the will to for Many years to come a Large Busi slate had refused to form any ticket or to Nacsa curried on in this wild Section traversed a a in in electing any whig state ticket what by Ticae lakes and Ponds hut from the specs this was the result of a state of mens of lumber we Timve Sean on our route things Well understood Here. There were we do not think much of the Quality of the Tut enough whigs in the slate to ofter any lumber and whet this is Fuff we should not a reasonable Prospect of electing a whig think the land Worth one cent per ticket. We Are left therefore to choose hut these Beautiful lakes will to Tho resort of the ardent Angler for Ages and Genera Lions to come As the Toni and Are extended through such a vast extent of Inland Waters. It will to absolutely in ipod Sibla even to Oatch them All out or even to Emlue Stumf numbers much and we Auy to All anglers who take Delight in Quot throwing the Bright Fly a go to Richardson s Lake and in sure to fish in great l Iko for we Are Safe in saying this is the route t Placo for Trout fishing in Tho now England states and perhaps in the world. I have seen a barrel caught by three Mon in the Mourao of three Days fishing. And one string of ton Trout weighing forty Pound. Sumo of them 1 was told would weigh about seven pounds and was assured it was no uncommon thing to Tako Trout weighing soon pounds and they Are not the Lako Trout like Liose caught in Moose head like which Are not Worth cooking alter they Are caught but Are All the pure spotted Salmon Trout. Having said what to Havo and recorded Tho same by the Way Side la our Camp amidst singing and merry talk and in the utmost haste we doubtless have Mado Many errors but if so they were not Iamont Dooal and we shall not have much More to say As our Par Yaro to leave Early in the morning or a soon As our guides arrive with our baggage and our men with the carriages who Are to come up furn Bethel for a. Doct. J has lust Home in from a Short Hunt with six partridges and we would remark Hore that to have shot any number we desired on our various excursions. Sir. Oct. 7?we have now arrived at the popular tavern kept by John Smith where we Are to Dino on Moose Steak. Tho Day has been Beautiful and our Rido excl locating in the sex reme. Tho scenery through which we have been p Issing has appeared quite us interesting As it did in our description we gave on our Way up. On do sending the Mountain through Tho notch we passed within a few rods of Tho Placo whore the Moose was killed to which to have referred in our notes and Tho first House to Oarn to we saw u skin stretched upon the Harp. Our party ordered a atop Anu with shouts for suite of the Trouso meat we rushed into the House to the great Naioti ashment of the lady of the House who however soon became Calm and sold to our party Auch pieces of each one might select at very reasonable rates of Flor ing us some Moose Mineo pie a lob our party pronounced delicious. Our Driver informs us to b is noon seven Between the american and the democratic Haiti est old party lines Are to a great exp not obliterated. The american ticket a made i of men of in Atli Iho ancient parties. 1 he democratic ticket excludes All but democrats. On Tho 4th of last month the americans met at the Capitol of the state and formed a platform upon which they have organised their new party. It is Liberal and fair. It proclaims Trie 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 worship god according to the dictates 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 Gratin irom foreign noun trips to i or shores la 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. On these principles i was willing to act and am yet willing to Al bul i never was a member of what has been called the native american party or of the know nothing society As it is More commonly called. I know there Are Many eminent men in this country for whom 1 have great respect who Are members of each of the the present governor elect of Renus Tirania. Who is personally known to Moas 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 Saal owes i election in a great degree to their votes. A better Man could not in my opinion have been selected for the office. I know not upon what authority it is slated that the late 1resident of the United states in a member of the know nothing order. But t do know that a number of the most intelligent and a biotic men in the country Havo adopted the principles and joined the society of this secret Paity. 1 know too that in this state a very great number of gentlemen of High standing and acknowledged patriotism from the ranks of both the whig and democratic parties Are believed to be among the members of Ilia order of i United americans.

Lias kindly offered to his horse and Carriage with which 1 shall Manivo at Homo at about eleven of clock a. M. And thus Mendoth Tho record of this very exciting Ami interesting excursion. Tiie Socle difficulty obviated. From late advices despatched from London to Liverpool just before Tho Dopa Tuio of the steamship it would appear that Louis Napoleon concluded to change his determination not to allow or Soule to Cross Franco. Tho now York courier and enquirer says Louis Napoleon retracts and or. Soul is Freouf Tho soil of franc. We have received intelligence by telegraphic despatch to Liverpool dated London nov. 3d, ii o clock p. A announcing that Tho emperor Napoleon has rescinded his order prohibiting or. Souled a passage through France and the american minister will leave London to Norrow nov. 4th for Paris on his was to Madrid. The argument and the ill fences which operated to product this change in the policy of the French Monarch had not transpired at the time when our information was despatched in it it indeed we have it a of to believe that the determination which so suddenly Kut an end 10 All speculation and App re Sii Siou on this subject wait made very suddenly anti was qui e unexpected in diplomatic circles in taxi Don although it was supposed that the answer of Del Sluys would prevent All difficulty Between the two countries. A a a a a a i Mats it a a a Tiik know nothing nominations nor the presidency. The following speculations Are from Tho new Yolk Tribune a the new York times of saturday has an folic jul or Semi official article to inform the Public at Large that the know nothings will not nominate their candidates for president and vice president at present. Very probable but this does not Render it any the less Clear who 11tose candidate must be. Hor president their Man is Sam Houston. He is a southerner and a slaveholder and therefore Well soiled to Lead that great movement for crushing out Quot Sec ional feeling a that is to say Suliko of slave catching which is avowed to to one great object of the order he also voted against the no a in a Temperance Man which will make him an available candidate at the North. , he is a demo eral and May possibly get the nomination of tbsp party and so carry the Irish and German Voles. Best jes he is himself suppose to by the identical Quot same a or mythical impersonation of the order. Of coarse he must be the candidate and a pretty Strung candidate he will be. As for the vice presidency nothing need be said. That Piave a reserved for or. Daniel Ullman and we protest against any other name be my mentioned. Havo not held in office i did not gladly the sign and i Aupp Oso i shall even yet resign the seat now hold before the expiration of the Long term which is before me. But i am not ungrateful to my friends for the honors they conferred upon me and a Well know and can never forget the men who bestowed them. There is no sacrifice which an honorable Man could make to sustain them which i am not at All times ready to incur. I do not expect the party to agree with to in everything. I do nut expect a i to be either a whig or a democratic parly. But if i am to net with a i at All it must stand by the principles to which i have referred. The foregoing extracts Are copied from the american ballot a paper gently started in Portsmouth n. H. So far of these extracts Are concerned the sentiments they contain have our cordial assent. We regard them eminently Republican calculated to strength eur and Render enduring the form of government which Tho people of these United states have a doped and to enlarge and vitalize ire institutions. If this be Tho full platform of Tho american party and there is no addenda by which the eternal principles of personal Liberty Are violated or held in abeyance we desire to stand upon no belter Ono. Take for example Tho following sentence a a a gentlemen 1 am for american citizens a a american interests. 1 am for american in preference to foreign labor american mechanics american manufactures american navigators Ami above All american agriculture. I am for american bread stuffs and an american Market for them. I am far the country As it stands in preference to All other countries and have no desire to Rin he foreign vote by abject flattery or professions of greater regard for foreigners than far those bom in my Omi a my native such n platform is a patriotic one for patriotism is not so Dii Iuse As to make no distinctions Between countries. Tho Truo Patriot Aims to Advance the interests of his own country a by All honest and reason Able Means. He prefers its interests to the interests of other and foreign countries. This was the platform adopted by the fathers of the Republic the one upon which Washington stood and the one which will command the respect and Confidence of the genuine Republican democracy of the noun try. It is pleasant to feel that Tho recent indications give Promise of a better state of things and that the country after having swerving from her True position and its peo pie too Many of them have been running after strange gods and worshipping at the altar of Paity instead of the altar of the country to soon to resume the old Republican position mid Trio people to return to worship no the american Aliar which was reared amid Tho storms and trials of the Days of the revolution. It will be perceived that or. Clayton docs not claim to speak i Cathalma for the know nothing organizer lion and to expressly says that he Neve was a member of what has been called the native american party or the know nothing society As it is commonly called. This disclaimer of or. Clayton a renders of comparatively mulls importance another portion of or. Clayton s speech in which he asserts that the new organization will ignore the question of slavery and to use his language a a will refuse to test Tho suitable Ness of any Man for Public office by Tho question whether to is for or against the Mere Extension of slavery in Somo territory of the United we accept or. Clayton a sentiments upon other matters not because he Speaks by authority but because we consider them of eminently right but his views in relation to the slavery questions in our judgment to do no Cord with american principles nor Are they to be taken As indicative of the principles of Tho order to which they refer. In our View it is essentially american to decree that outside of slate jurisdiction Tho Law of territorial Liberty shall be observed and the theory of personal Freedom recognized in or though a naturalized citizen. If any i Gressional legislation relating to the Mas Jitter Fiorin that opinion he is at per territories of the United states. As american feet Liberty to do so by.

We Timve reason therefore to know if there be anything prescriptive bigoted or among the know nothings of other Stales it is not to be found in the Creed of the party principles of the americans of Delaware. A a a a i concur in the sentiment expressed by Gen Washington that?o�1 is contrary to the policy of this government to appoint Loreign. Ers to it file to the exclusion of Nativo born citizens a i do not mean by this that a foreigner should never be appointed to office. I mean that other circumstances being equal the american ought Lobo preferred mid that was the opinion of jul there Are Many foreigners in this country for whom i would not hesitate to vote and to illustrate my meaning i now Lake leave to say that As the senatorial Lerton of James Shields of Illinois is about to expire if i had a Hundred votes 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. But if Ai Tuther Shields equally worthy patriotic Uttz Able were to prevent Insull us his opponent being born a american on the soil hero i should prefer him to the foreign. I i claims to True american and patriotic feelings. I shall not enlarge upon this subject for my views have already been publicly expressed. You understand me therefore fellow citizens As standing on the platform adopted by the americans at Dover on the 4th Duy of last month a and no other which in any degree con hints with it. I will not support for office a Man who claims to be a native american unless he plants himself Alo upon that platform. If he seeks my vote he must do it by professing my principles. He must Tell me that some other party betide the american party Here has nominated him for the office. He must come out plainly and say that to asks support on the principles of the americans at the Capitol when they met last month publicly in state convention. If he asks Tho support of the american party he has no right to accept without our consent a nomination from another parly professing principles which we As americans have never adopted. A a a a a a a a at this tads when i think therein far More real danger than has Ever existed before As the sequel will show i rejoice that an american party is to to found in Tho country around which i Anil other Mon who think As i do can rally a a a a a a in every slate and in every Section of this Union there is now an american party. At present a foreigner not naturalized and in trouble abroad excites Inore sympathy among the politicians of Iho dominant party than any native american Touhl possibly do. More noise was made by them about Martin Koala than would have been created by an equal danger to fifty native americans in a foreign Kiwa uth was at one time in their Estima mation an object of much greater interest and admiration than any amerion who has lived since Tho cays of gentlemen i am for Devotion to american citizen and american interests. I am for american in preference to foreign labor american mechanics american Roan fac living in a state of Mutual Dupouy dance on each Ami having Mutual existing influences we cannot be a Neil Creul to or ignore the Greal question of slavery. John m. Clayton As an individual May tie willing to ignore or to speak More truthfully May like to see slavery Prosper and extend for this i Tho legitimate and practical meaning which the South has always Given to Tho word ignore but Tho freemen of the North will never consent to such doctrine. If it wore practicable to �5 the Springfield Republican thus expresses itself in regard to the Massachusetts election a a but the result of mondays voting Means that the people were out of humor with the old political organizations nil desired to extinguish them break old Dizier Knees unite and re Divide As Tho new and More practical questions of the Limo should indicate to to necessary or this was the voice of common sense and the feeling of Tho great Moss of the peo Plo. They sought satisfaction in n fusion upon the slavery question but the quietude and velvet footed philanthropists 011 one Side and the selfish schemes of and committee men on both brought Effort Here to naught. Disappointed and vexed at this failure and unable to recognize any Good reason in longer contentions with each other when there was no disagreement of principle a great proportion of the voters of the stale seized upon the know nothing order As a common Refuge and a common instil mint of knocking in Trio head those effete political organizations which with Lillo or no Power left for Good yet had been nolo to stifle the Call for new combinations Moie faithfully representing the popular manfully said. Tho Springfield Republican is one of Tho Massachusetts whig pay pcs that endeavoured to persuade the whig leaders there of Tho Fatu Ity of la Weir course in sticking up their backs and declining they had Tho Power and would have the whole. They have got nothing and in get ing a i got their deserts. The Boston whigs have Lineti hard to make the world believe that Massachusetts a Luggery has always been Send on the slavery question. They Havo failed to Mako Tho world Belicov it just As any sensible Man supposed they would unless they could blot from the his tory of the country Tho record of the doings of Boston politicians and Massachusetts statesmen in 1850. A very Largo proportion of the sincere men who have continue their connection with the whig party have Felt for years that the greatest obstacles which stood in Way of stopping the Oxten Siou of slavery and the exercise of Tho general government in its behalf was the yielding spirit of Massachusetts there has always been vigor enough in their manifestos on Tho slavery question but unfurl Anatoly the War Hanover come up to thu manifesto.

We arc not posted slavery from the Halls of legislation q con it i Only be 011 the principle that slavery where it exists in the slates now should be left to Tho states themselves and that no new movements to extend it lerp Luato or Bouer it up should be countenanced. Such an ignoring of slavery us this would be reasonable but or. Clayton Means nothing of Tho kind.

It was erected last year at an expense of More than seven thousand dollars its Lention is on a Beautiful and retired spot in the Vil Lago of South Berwick Ono of the pleasantest nil most cultivated places in the county of York. We know of no Planco in the county More favourably situated for inca tic Nizic instruction than South Berwick or an institution which has at its command belter facilities for imparting Rov. Or. Wells continues As principal of the school. The wittier term commences As will be seen by an advertisement in this paper on thursday of next week. Contested . By the Kennebec journal to olt Servo or. Fuller received his certify Cales signed by Only n portion ref Tho Council. A minority of the Council messes. Woodman und Tucker submit a minority report wherein they differ in opinion from the majority of Tho Council and recommend a submission of certain questions As to the legality of votes thrown to Iho supremo court. The journal Tavs that the Voles of certain plantations which according to thu Rule and opted in 1852, when Fuller was declared elected Over Robinson should have been thrown out Havo been counted. It is quite Likely that or. Milli Ken will present his claims before the next advertiser. Had we had space to Sparo we should have Given this report online. Tho chief objection stated in this report was that the plantations had not returned As Thoy were required by Law lists of the voters with the returns. Tho signers of Tho report consid ered this As imperative Tho provision was obviously into did to Check illegal and fraudulent voting. Tho refusal of a majority of the Council to submit Tho controverted question to the court seems like prejudging the Case in or. Fullers favor. In coming to this conclusion that or. Fuller was elected the Council seemed to decide with great liberality in some cases and with great strictness in others but their judgement was always such As would favor or. Fuller National know nothing the Telegraph has afforded obscure rumours during Tho inst few Days of a general meeting at Cincinnati of delegates of the secret order with an alleged View of preparing for the next presidential Campaign. The present Lime would not seem to be a favourable ode to be selected for the purpose of nominating a candidate but that a not conclusive evidence that the report it . The following letter in the new York express furnishes the most direct information that we have soon regarding the meeting at Cincinnati a Cincinnati november 15, 1854. An immense number of americans know nothings and from every Mio in the Union Are in session Here to Day �11 National cuon Oil and will be for some Days to deliberate upon matters of political interest to them of american of Titena and to tote Donn try at Large. Even California has sent delegates to this convention. The strangers in town who seem to be members of it Are among the Best men of Tho country and create a Strong impression in their favor from their general intelligence order sobriety and unexceptionable Demeanour. It 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 it is contemplated by any Large number ofic Legnica to Mako one at this new York new England the South North and West Are All represented Here by men of a Lionel sentiment and character. It looks to us As if Providence had interposed to raise up a body of pure nil True men to give a Wise and patriotic direction to the government. A Nufi mortars. This fully explains the delay in the Progress of the siege. On the night of the 20th the enemy Mode an attempt Lof Pike the French guns but a fail exl signally whatever russian said enter p 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 hospitals Are in effective condition. The health of the army is on Tho whole satisfactory although some sickness had appeared among the gunners from the ships. Signed Canko Kkt. The total loss in the French forces from thu 17li to the 28th of october was 500. Privato accounts in the Monit cur contain French narratives of the Progress of the siege to the 30lh of october. On the 25th, 20,000 russians attacked Tho French rear which was defended by the turks drove them from it and took it Possession. The English immediately attacked Tho Russ ians and sent a messenger to Gen. Canrobert who hastened with the second division of the army and a Squadron of Chasseur to their Relief. Tho French and eng Lish cavalry United nud quickly repulsed the enemy by a Brilliant charge in which the combat was maintained for about five minutes with the sword. The positions were retained. The loss of the English was four Hundred but the French loss was not quite so great. Thu Moni eur publishes late despatches received by thu government from Gen. Can Roncil dated before Seda Stool oct. 28. The works of the siege Aro being continued. On the 25th, the russian army appeared on the Plains of Balaclava. They wore attacked and a Battle ensued which had no particular consequences except that the English experienced some loss from a formidable russian charge which was re i mused by them with great vigor. On the allowing morning 5000 men left seen so Dunnil attacked the loft Wing of the knit Bol they were repulsed. The russians however rallied and repeated Tho Utlack when they wore again repulsed with considerable loss. Canrobert. Thrilling news Erom the the Steamer Baltic arrived at new York on sunday with news from Europe to nov. 15th. Tho news by this arrival is extremely interesting. 1 lie news of Iho massacre of the English Light cavalry under lord Cardigan is mainly confirmed. They charged upon a russian Battery of thirty puns and no less than 400 wore killed tight Only two Hundred returning. Since then there has been incessant and sanguinary fighting. The allies in Point of numbers Are now Over matched and urgent requests have been sent for instant reinforcements.
