Fire and Fatal Aooident. At Fort Kent, on Saturday, Sept 14th, the house, barn and outbuildings of Peter Clare were entirely destroyed by fire. Loss about $5000. No insurance. After the fire Mr.

Clare descended into his well to clear out the rubbish, whioh had fallen into it daring the horning of the buildings; the air In the we'l was almost entirely exhausted, and it was filled with noxious gases, so that when Mr. C. reached the bottom he fell insensi ble. As soon as his condition was ascertained, another person, takiDg a rope with him started down tbe bidder but did not get more than half way down when he was overcome and fell to the bottom, striking his head against a rock with such force as to kill him instantly. They were both got out of the well after a great deal of ex ertion.

It was with difficulty that Mr. Clares life was restored. Pioneer. BT We learn that Geo. F.

Shapley, of Portland, is about to raise a regiment for Gen Butlers brigade, for special service. Gen. Butler arrived on the train Thursday afternoon, and was welcomed at the depot in this city by a large and most enthusiastic multitude.

Major Gen, Benj. F. Butler arrived in this city yesteiday noon, and took lodgings at the Prei ie House. In the afternoon he was called upon by many of our citizens, and, at the request of the Mayor and many others, concluded to meet our fellow citizens at the new City Hall at 74 oclock the evening. Long before the time had arrived the spacious hall was as densely packed with human beings as it could be, and all the ante-rooms were filled, It was the largest convocation of -people we have ever seen in Portland.

Gen. Butler was introduced to tbe audience by His Honor Mayor Thomas, in a few felici-tious remarks, and was received with storms of applanse, the band playing TbeStar Spangled Banner. In response to calls from tbe vast au dience be addressed them for half an hour.

An Incident. Mr. Editor As I was walk ing with a friend through the camp of the 9th Regiment at Augusta, the day before its departure, I noticed an elderly man besnDg a little child of a few months old in his arms, and ac, companied by a young, sad looking woman, of some two or three and twenty years. The elderly man was probably the grandfather of the child, and the youDg woman the mother and tbey were htsre to take their last leave of the fether and husband who is a soldier. I saw no more of them until after the Regi meat bad left, when I met tbe same group in the Hall of the Augusta House, just ready to leave for their home.

Having a cariosity to know if my surmises of the day previous were correct, I en.ered into a conversation with the man and learned the following faets: The man appeare I to be one of the respects, ble class of small farmers. He lives in the town of Sumner, and as I had correctly surmised, sustained the relation of grandfather to the child, and with the daughter-in-law was here to take leave of the son wly had gone with the Regiment. He told me this was the fourth and last of his sous who had enlisted. Such facts as this are cheering indications, and while our hone hardy fathers and moth era are willing and ready to give up the last son to serve his country, and assume the care and expense of their families, we need not despair of the cause of liberty and right. Ttis is, to be sure a simple incident, but one of much significance.

Another person was attempting to drive by him and crowded his horse out of the road. fcIhe Portland Advertiser and other papers call upon ns to give the names ot the persons alluded to by us as be! eved to have tampered with men of our Maine regiments for the purpose of producing mutiny. The Advertiser must be verdant to suppose that we should do aDy such thing. When the government has proof enough, to convict the gentlemen they will probably hear, of something to their disad vantage.

The Mutiny in the Fourth Regiment. The Belfast Age has the following facts from Capt. Bean: When called out for parade one hundred and three refused to do duty. They comprised a large portion of Capts. Burns and Carvers companies of Rocklaad, and a considerable number of Capt.

Smith's Wise asset company, also about twenty from Capt. Cunningham's company, and three from the Sears port company. The mutiny arose from a supposition that tbe regiment were only three months men on account of some informality in musteriDg them into service.

Treasons shroud Somethin? to be Considered. In the contest whioh the Government is now waging to preserve the Union and the liberties of the people, not the least among the obstacles which it has to meet is the epirit of impatienoe manifested under apparent reverses, and a disposition on the part of many to censure onr officers without a knowledge of all the facts, and to draw desponding conclusions in regard to the prospects of the war. Many loyal newspapers and individuals are every day doing damage to the cause, by indulging in this fault finding disposition for to the extent of their influence they are impairing the confidence of the people in their Government and their leaders, and to that extent diminishing the necessary support which the Government mast have from the peo- aj-NEW Fl PATAPbCO Call re Piau a L.

P. Bradbury C- it, tifio American of the present week again urges lhe necessity of such precautions upon the attention of the public, and reprints the following method of preparing ladies inflammable dresses to render them safe against such accidents. We commend it to attention: The chemicals to be used are the tunsgate of soda and the sulphate of ammonia. Carbonate of magnesia and common alum will answer, but the first two are said to be the best. One part of these salts dissolved in ten parts of water is about the strength of the solution required.

The salt may be mixed with the starch, or after the dresses are starched and dried in the atmosphere they may be thoroughly and uniformly moistened with it, and then dried and ironed. In several of the great bleaching works in Great Britain, the muslin in pieces is now rendered uninflammable by the application of these chemi-1 cals. PICKED UP schr.

We lay down this rule In its broadest and fullest sense, and intend to abide by it. If snybiug appears in onr columns at this cris's which may tend to the discouragement of our soldiers or of the people at large, or which shall induce tnem to think that the war is improperly or inefficiently conducted, it will be by accident or because it did not meet the eye of the editor.

The defence of the Union is in the hands of the constituted authorities, and wears willing to leave it there. They should have they muet have the cordial ard united support of the people, or we shall fail in subduing this gigantic Our resources in money and in men are abundant for the purpose but the extent to which they are provided depends materially upon the confidence which is felt. If the cause is made to appear doubtful, money will not be so freely furnished, nor will men so freely enlist. It is therefore not the part of a sincere patriot to let his voice be heard in censorions or disponding tones. If he has such feelings, let him keep them to himself.

A single desponding remaik made at the corners of the streets may fell upon the ears of men who will report it in the country as the general sentiment ofthe city.and thus do incalculable mischief, when in feet the opinion of intelligent men is that the Union cause gaios strength and its general prospects brighten every day. We say, then, toevery Union man: Dont talk as if you were frightened. Dont say that General Fremont or any other General has failed in his management, or that the cause is losing ground in his department. If it be so, it will do no good for you to declare it. Let the Government investigate all such matters and take such measures as the public interest may required.

We are informed by a letter from Fort Kent that Abraham Do-four, elected representative ia that distrust, was not nominat' by the Republicans as heretofore ststed, but was the candidate of the Frenoh settlers, and supported as an anti-war mail. That timid and nneducated people have been easily alarmed about the war, by a few designing men, and made to believe that they will be sent to the army and as they far outnumber tbs native Americans on the Madawaska, they were able to secure the election of an anti-war man by a plurality. The Union men of the district had no less than three candidates, we believe two Republican and one Democrat. A Feast Spoiled.
