Missing Vessel-Barque Mary E. Donworth, Captain Baker, from Machias,
sailed for St. Thomas, February 13th for St. Michaels, since which nothing
has been heard from her, and fears are entertained for her safety. The ship
was an A2 vessel of 356 tons, built at Machias in 1855, where she is owned.
She had a cargo of lumber.
Barque Mary E. Donworth, reported above was at Fayal, Azores, North
America, May 31st., chartered to bring forward part of the cargo of
British barque Indus, coal loaded, condemned.
We regret to learn that on Thursday week Mr. George W. Ricker, the
popular landlord of the Stanley House, at Augusta, was thrown from
his carriage while riding on the race course of the State Agricultural
Society, and striking his head, was taken up insensible. It was first
thought his injuries would prove fatal, but we are glad to learn that he
is now in a fair way of recovery.
Accident in Gorham.-The Fourth was celebrated in Gorham by a
parade of Continentals, in grotesque uniform, with a tin and a
sheet iron band. Two young men were badly injured by the premature
discharge of a cannon they were loading. Mr. George W. Jewett had
his face very severely injured, and may perhaps lose an eye; Mr.
George Patrick escaped with a pretty severe burning of his arms.
As David Carter of Parkman, was engaged in taking down an old barn
on the 18th, he fell from the beam fracturing one arm and dislocating
his wrist. A similar accident happened to Deacon French of the same
town, only two days subsequent to Mr. Carter's misfortune.
The house of Mr. Huzzy Gould, of Brownville was struck by lightning
on the 20th ult. Two of his children were rendered senseless for a time
by the shock, and the house was somewhat damaged. The children
Brother Littlefield of the Skowhegan Clarion has an able editorial on
"Dandruff and Sore Head." He handles the subject like one who is
thoroughly versed in it.
At the opening of the Antiquarian Society of the North at Copenhagen
last May, under the presidency of the king of Denmark, Dr. A. C. Hamlin
of Bangor, Maine, sent in an inscription found in the Island of Monhegan
near the coast of Maine, and traced to the Normans, who were supposed
to have visited the American coast in ancient times.
