Thou art a little angel now,
A diadem is on thy brow,
A golden harp is in thine hand,
Among the holy throng thou stand'st.
Thou was't not born to dwell on earth,
And here engage in sinful mirth;
Joys nobler, purer were designed,
To fill the young immortal mind.
The Gage Tavern at Bridgton Center, was wholly destroyed by fire on Sunday

S. H. Jacobs, who shot an Irishman at Fairfield, has been tried at Norridgewock and
sentenced to the State Prison for seven years.
Eating House.-Messrs. Ingersoll & Son have taken store No. 77, "Fox Block,"
and fitted it up in fine style as a confectionary and restorator (sic) establishment. Their
rooms are spacious, well lighted, and lofty and their refreshments for the inner man are
admirably served, as all who were in at the free lunch on Saturday can testify. They
deserved patronage and will get it. As friends at our elbow says-
"Those will now eat who never ate before,
And those who always ate will eat the more."
The Legislature.-"Things is working" at Augusta. And it is amusing to observe
the moderated exultation of the successful maneuvers, and the look of injured
innocence put on by the discomfited party! They are shocked at much profligacy,
the honest souls! The Whigs, Morrill men and Free Soilers seem to have coalesced
without difficulty and have elected Noah Smith, Jr., of Calais (Whig) Speaker of
the House, and General J. J. Perry, (Morrill) Clerk. The Senate having a majority
of regular democrats, has spent its time in trying to out wit the coalition. As there
is a majority of Pillsbury men elected to the Senate, they wish to force the House
into action upon only a portion of the vacancies, and thus secure the organization
of the Senate. The House refuses to go into this partial arrangement, and thus the
wheels of government are at a stand-still.
Ship Clinton of Bath, Murphy, which was at Turks Island 9th ult., ldg for
