Petition from Maine.

--A memorial has been forwarded from Portland, Me., to Senator Fessenden, for presentation to Congress, earnestly praying for measures of conciliation and compromise. The memorial, which indicates no preference for any particular measure of compromise, is subscribed to by 2,500 signatures, collected in a very few days, and representing all shades of party feeling. The names of eight influential clergymen, and of the Rev. David W. Bacon, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Maine, are appended to the petition.
