It is a matter of just congratulation to our citizens that the Americau Association for the Advancement of Science is to meet here next week. The association may be said to represent the most advanced thought of our country. It is composed of gentlemen of the highest literary and scientific attainments, together with a fair proportion of the best read and most highly cultivated of our more wealthy countrymen. Probably in no other body, or anything like its numbers, in the whole length aud breadth of our land can there be found -so many of the leading minds of the age. For, be it observed, it is these same quiet students that, in the re tirement of their study or office or laboratory, take the great steps forward which all recognize as stages of progress, when the ideas evolved are reduced to practical, tangible form. It is very common now, as it was formerly, to decry and deride every idea which does not give promise of direct and immediate application to the industrial arts. Men are very apt to feel and to say: Give us something practical; some thing which will increase our wealth or render us less subservient to manual toil; show us something that is not mere theory and we will adopt it and bless the inventor. Pure science and tho painstaking, systematic search for it present no attractions to tho common mind. And yet it is only the man v ho loves exact and particular truth, that can contribute much to the advance ment of his fellow men. Unquestionably, he who takes a particular truth—a particular dis covery in science—and makes a practical appli cation of it; he, for instance, who avails him self of a single discovery in chemistry, to bring out a new color for our fabrics of every sort; or to jiroducc a new and cheaper material to substitute some expensive article of manufact ure, has been of great use to mankind. But if we were to go no farther than merely to apply the material already afforded us, we should soon come into the condition of the Chinese and the Japanese nations, who, apparently, until quite recently, have not made any visible or grand progress, for perhaps thousands of years. We should become thoroughly sordid.® As a nation we should certainly continually deteriorate in the pursuit of merely material success. But, thank Heaven, as the case now stands, we have a noble class of men, who, content with comparatively little of worldly wealth devote themselves to the systematic investiga tion of truth; who strive to draw forth the hid den secrets of animate and inanimate creation not knowing whither they may next be led but courageously willing to follow into any path that may be opened to their view. These are our advanced guard, who, though we may not realize it, as we go about our daily avocations, are stimulating us to move on, nor rest content ed with the infetior attainments we have al ready made. These are tho men who, by their labors, so unrequited in the physical and ma terial sense have enabled our children to grasp ideas impossible to the men of fifty years ago. These are the men who are opening up to our common gaze the grand vistas of creation, ana who will not cease their efforts until there shall he nothing beyond that man can explore. Let us show our appreciation of the noble glimpses of the universe, in its great whole and in the marvellous perfection of its mi nutest details; of the deep full breath of a purer, more exhilarating air, to which these men have assisted us; let us show our appre ciation of the honor they confer upon us, by extending to them a most cordial welcome. L. G. J. High School Priori pals hip. Mr. Editor;—We see it stated by your evening contemporary that several meetiugs of the High School Committee have been held with a view to the election of a principal in place of Mr. Stone. &c. The fact is such meetings have been held, not with the view of electing a prin cipal, hut for the purpose of recommeuding to the full board for election some one believed to possess the requisite qualifications to insure success in that capacity. The committee on the High School not being able to so recom mend with any degree of unanimity, decided at lieir last meeting to refer the matter without recommendation to the fuli hoard. But it is an error to say that uuder existing circumstances Mr. W. W. Colburn of Manchester, N. H., (not New York,) is a prominent candidate for the vacant position. A sub-committee of the Higli School Committee visited Manchester and conferred witli Mr. Colburn upon the mat ter, and learned from him that on certain con ditions lie would accept the place of principal in our High School. So well pleased was this committee with Mr. C., that they (unanimously recommended him to the High School Commit tee, but in consequence of the divided views ex isting among members of the HighSohooi Com mittee, in relation to candidates, and of the evident impossibility of securing condi tions precedent to Mr. C’s acceptance of tbe position, it is deemed entirely unfair to drag his name before the public as a prominent candidate, or as a candidate at all under existing circum stances. It is now’ very plain that no one can be elect ed to the Principalship of the High School with the entire support of either the sub-cotnrnittee on that school, or of tha full board. The embar rassing question for tbe school board now to de termine is, can aDv one be elected and placed at the head of the High School as its Principal, who will receive sufficient suppo rt from |the full hoard and also from the community,to ren der it safe to anticipate for the school that measure of success in the future, that it has en joyed in such eminent degree in the past. Di vided counsel iu the hoard and any consider able hostile sentiment iu the community would surely prove fatal. The Board have now a very delicate liuty, in the performance of which the public hold by far the largest interest, and have a right to look for such action on the part of the hoard of school committee as shall in no wise jeopardize tbe best interests of the High School. Portland, Aug. 15tb, 1873. * Mr. Editor :—A card appeared in the Press and Argus, of a recent date, severely censuring Capt. Sands of the Gazelle, for the course he took in continuing on his island trip on tha afternoon of Saturday, Aug. 9th. Now I would not cuter into any needless discussion as to whether he erred in judgmeut in not attempt ing to land his passengers and save life or prop erty, as opinions differ as to his ability or in ability to do either, considering the large num ber of passengers he was conveying at the time and the nature of his boat, but when the writer states in substance, that Capt. Sands is not a suitable person to have human lives entrusted to liis care, I would simply state that for a long number of years he has • run a steamer to Peak’s aud Cushing’s Islands, and during the whole time has not met with a single mishap, but has gained the reputation of being a watch ful and careful man, and beyond a doubt the travelling public will affirm this statement. I consider this a simple act of justice to Capt. Sands and iu this connection I would also state that the pilot of the Gazelle is regarded as one fully competent for the position he has so long and ably held. When the truth comes to be bptter understood it will be found that if, per chance, Capt. Sands erred iu judgment on that occasion, that he is not the heartless wretch that some would have us believe him to be. _Justice.

A Judicial Decision* New York, Aug. 15.—John Fogerty was sentenced at the General Sessions in 1871 to 18 months in the penitentiary for felony. He es caped in November leaving 15 months unex pired. Long after the period for which he was committed had elapsed he was returned to prison on a three month sentence for misde meanor. The second sentence has been served out and the Warden holds Fogerty as an escaped convict. Counsel submitted in the Su preme Court to-day that the Warden could not hold a man on his owu allegations; that such power would be dangerous, and that competent courts should decide whether the prisoner was an escaped convict. Judge Davis said that the prisoner was before the court on a proper pro cess and did not traverse the Warden’s return. As to being an escaped convict the Warden was bound to hold the prisoner for the remainder of the term aud then appear against him for es caping. The writ was thou dismissed. Route of the Northern Pacific. Gen. Rosser ia charge of the railroad sur vey of the Stanley Yellowstone expedition has submitted to the authorities of the Northern Pacific Railroad Coinpauy, iu this city, his official report of the results thus far accom plished by the expedition. He finds the new, final route across western Dakota, from Missouri to the Yellowstone river entirely practicable aud satisfactory, it being greatly superior to those of former days. The distance, 205 miles, is 21 miles shorter than the survey of 1871, the gradients are moderate, the average of work per mile is considerable less, and the number of important bridges is reduced nearly two-thirds. The little Missouri river, which former surveys crossed seven and eleven times, is crossed once. On the line so located, the route runs immediately through only one mile of the “had,” or clay land, just east of the little Missouri.
