TIM MAINE: LIQUOR Lxvv.---The Mayor of Port
land, Me., in his report to the Common Council of
that city, gives the most gratifying accounts of the
effects of the Liquor Law on the morality, prospe
and order of the city. So quiet, peaceable and
orderly are the streets that watchmen have been
altogether dispensed with, although several were
indispensable before the passim , e' of the law.
Public houses or grog shops have utterly disap
peared, and liquor is only sold in very small'quan
tities and with the greatest secrecy by a few for
eigners. No more than one quarter the amount
formerly used is now consu tied in the State. The
number of persons requiring relief from the Alms-
House, both intern and extern, is seriously reduced,
and the. House of Cortection is entirely empty.
The Mayor says :
" I have reason to believe that the law is every
day becoming more firmly fixed in tale favorable
regards of-the people of this city and Stale, and I
am confident that no retrograde step will be taken
here in relation to this subject.
He concludes his report thus :
" I am confident at the end of this municipial
year I shall be able to report to the City Colincil
that this traffic is entirely extinguished, And that the
city has not paid a dollar of the cost.
We have also received a letter from a conespon
dent at Calais, in Maine, confirming the above—
Our correspondent says that some time in Decem
ber a vessel arrived at that port having on board
several barrels of alcoholic spirits, which, an its ar
rival, the Sheriff seized under an execution for debt.
While thus in the custody of the Sheriff, he was re
quested to deliver it over to the City Marshal under
the Liquor Law. The Sheriff refused, but the Mai
shal made seizure and appointed a keeper. The
Sheriff took the I quur horn the keeper and stored
it in a private house. The Marshal summoned a
posse of temperance people, broke open the house,
carried off the liquor, and by legal jintstment under
'the Liquor Law, it was spilled on the public streets
on the last day of the year. Since then, Houston,
in whose house the liquor was stored by the Sheriff,
was tried for an attempt to kill, and on the other
hind the Marshal awl his men were summoned and

ti What do you think the imnionnljackson would
have said upon the subject of non-intervention at
this time I • (Immense cheering.) I can imagine,
gentlemen. The old hero, watching with deep in
terest the struggle between Hungary and Austria,
and the aproach of the Russian Bear to take part
against the gal'atit Magyar, would have said at once
to the latter, 4 ' Halt, there; Mr. Bear, this is none of
your business;--we'll just draw a ring and show
the parties fair play, but if you do mix in, look out

said to have been such as to make a longer stay,

The officers repeat the charges of profanity, bias

Government al the United States. ' The Mormon
Governor is also said to have abused Washington
at &public rneetingisaying that " he Was a greeter
man than George Washington ;" that he " knew
more than George Washingthn ever Bid," &c. The
excitement of the people became so great, that the
officers feared for their lives. Misappropriation of
the United States funds is another of the charges
brought against Gov. Yana —The vice of polyga

is openly avowed and practised in iltz, territory, un
der the sanction and in obedience to the direct com

that verylew, if any, leading men in community can
be found who have not more than one, wife each,
which creates a monopoly and which was peculi
arly hard upon the officers sent- to reside thhre.
The prominent men in the church, whoperaxamite
in all things it is the ambition of the More' humble

we are credibly informed and believe, as many as
twenty or thirty, and Brigham Young die Governor
even a great number. Only a feW days before we
left the territory, the Governor was seen ridifig
through the stteets of the city in an omnibus; , witli
a large company of his wives, more than two-third,
of Whom had infants in their arms—a sure sign
that the evil is increasing. It is not uncommon td
find two or more sisters married to the same min ;
and in one instance at least a mother and her daugh.
ter are, among the wives of a leading member of
the church. This practice, regarded'and punished
as a high and revolting crime in all civilized coon
tries, would of coarse never be made a statutry
offence by a Mormon Legislature ' • and if a crime
at common law, the court would be powerless to
corm:A the evil, with Mormon juries."
The document shows a most monsoon's state of
social as well as political morals in Utah,. but it does
not seem to us to afford satislactory reasons for
three prominent United States of:fleeter abandoning
their posts, and flying With so Much haste to the
seat of government.
Frightful Railroad Accident.
The following, we extract from the Philadelphit‘
Latzer of Saturday morning,
The 6 o'clock train from New-York, yesterdays
morning, on passing Bristol, dropped one of its ears
those having charge of the train ran the cat ofl the
main track into a small car -brise, r pit left it there,
but neglected to torn bark again into its pro - per
place the switch leading to the car-honse. At 12
o'clock, .the 9 o'clock train from New-York reach
ed &loot, arid there being no passengers waiting
there, was passing on at nearly full speed, whey- it
reached the switch, and a sudden jar and the crash
ing of timbers caused quite a'consternation ammo ,
s The Locomotive had been turned from its proper
course by the misplaced s - ritch, and ran upon the
track leading to the car-house into a hich
it plunged, bursting through the doors and forcing
the empty care standing in the house thence through
a brick wall in the rear, thence through a pile of
wood in a yard adjoining and thence again into
the dining•toom of the house of Mr. William Stew'•
art, in the middle of which himself and family,
seven in number, were sitting around the dinner
table. The whole interior of the back building,
which was of frame, about 12 feet in by 16
feet in length, was brought down in a mass of ru •
ins, the upper floor falling on the table and stove,
with the bedding and tuunitnre from above.
The passengers immediately left the cars to ren
der such assistance as might be needed. They
found Mrs, Stewart and a young girl who were in
the room at the time of thecrash, were in the yard
whence they had been thrown, frantic with terror,
while the lather was struggling to rescue his child•
ten from beneath the ruins Their screams could
be beard and for a few minutes. nothing could be
,en of them, but on the upper floor, which had
fallen being lifted off, tha three children, two girls
and a boy, were found covered orer with rubbish
and rescued, whet the it injuries; were.happily found
to be but slight.
On returning to the car house, into which the
head of the train had entered. th'e locomotive and
tender were found to be driven together, and the
running gear and the name of the former crushed
into a hundred pieces, being, in a fact, a perfect
wreck. The end of the 'empty car, or rather the
shattered frame of, it, was driven almost entirely
out of the car-house through the brick wall, and it
lodged ort,the pile if wood in the yard, between
the rear of the house and the dwelling of Mr Stew
art ; a portion of it entering arid demolishing the
back of which, as before stated, but still retaining
its eleiated position.
The truck of this car was thoroughly demolished
between the front of locomotive and the lower part
of the wall which, heir' , " built against a bank of earth
did not give way. Th e engineer, Mr. Peter Pro
vost leaped ofl as soon as the head of the locomo
tive struck the -door, and succeeded in escaping
with a slight injury to his site and back. The two
firemen, James K , infey and James . Lexor, both of
New- Brunswiek, discovered the danger of their
position ton late to jump; and were tripod at last
between the locomotive and tender, the first with
his right foot caught at the instep, the bones crush
ed and protuding in alt 4011 manner, and the sec
ond with a similar injitr) to his left fool; and, though
not so severely crushed as the other.
A messenger was sent by the conductor, by - horse
express to the telegraph stationat Trenton, and a
mes , age sent to Philadelphia for another locomo
tive which reached Bristol auhree o'clock, and af
ter a detention of about three hours, the train was
again in motion to the city, where tt arrived at 44
