          Ship Rodger Stewart.-We mentioned a week or two since that a ship of noble
     dimensions built at Brunswick, had been towed up to our harbor.  She now lies at
     Central wharf, getting ready for sea-and is probably as thoroughly built, handsomely
     modeled and staunch a vessel as ever floated. She was built at Brunswick at the yard
     of Mr. George Skofield-has a very heavy frame of Maryland white oak, with
     planking and fastening of proportional strength. Her decorative finish is likewise of
     the highest degree of excellence. Her stern is ornamented with a burst of the person
     whom she was named, "Rodger Stewart," and the scroll work is of a bold and
     graceful character, somewhat new in style-highly creditable to the carver, Mr.
     William Southworth of this city. Her cabin is finished with polished rose wood,
      mahogany and satin wood, the work of Mr. Luther llsley of this city. Mr. R. T. D.
     Melcher, of Brunswick, was head joiner, Mr. William Cobbett painter.
          She is owned by Messrs. George and Alfred Skofield and others-her tonnage is not
     far from 1100.
          Rev. Mr. Hadley, a minister to the poor of the city, says in a card in the daily
     paper that the "Poor's Purse" is empty and my poor purse  is nearly so, it having
     been drawn upon to the amount of a  few dollars within the last fortnight, for the
     relief of the sick and suffering.  There is now severe sickness and destitution in
     several families under my immediate care.

          New Bishops.-On Tuesday the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
     Church, elected four Bishops, as follows;-Rev. Dr. Scott of Baltimore Conference;
     Rev. Dr. Simpson of Ohio Conference; Rev. Dr. Ames of Indiana Conference;
     Rev. Dr. Baker of New Hampshire Conference.

          At the Democratic Convention in Saco, Honorable W. C. Allen of Alfred was
     chosen delegate to the National Convention and George F. Sheply Esq., of this
     city, elector.
          Sad Accident.-A boat in which  three lads were sailing, in New Bedford harbor,
     was capsized on Saturday afternoon, and two of the boys, named William
     Howland, aged 14 son of Capt. Jonathan Howland, and Tilson Wood, Jr., aged son
     of Mr. Tilson Wood, were drowned.

          Samuel V. Ames of Hallowell, on the 16th inst., went to the wharf, laid off his
     hat and coat, took a kedge anchor in his arms and jumped overboard. He drowned.
     Delirum tremens.

          Dr. J. Prescott has opened a hydropathie establishment at Augusta.
          FIRES. The house and barn of Colonel George E. Richardson, in Hiram, also the
      stable of John P. Hubbard, Esq., was destroyed by fire on Friday night last. Insurance
      about $500.00-probable loss $1000.
          Fire in Bangor.- A stable, and portions of a house owned by Mrs. Merriman and
     another owned by Elijah Clement, in Bangor, were burnt on Thursday evening.
          Two boys of Mr. Richard Gibbs, and their grandmother, aged 85, were turned to
     death in the conflagration of the house in which they were asleep, in Bath, on the
     19th inst.,
