An Donor to onr City.
It is a matter of just congratulation to our
citizens that the Americau Association for the
Advancement of Science is to meet here next
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.

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
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.

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. With few ex
ceptions the country is a roiling prairie, some
times rising mto low hills, the grass being
excellent, and 'the soil good. Good water was
found the entire distance. Coal outcrops at
various points in vein* several feet in thickness
and timber is more abundant than on former
The report states that the main body of Gen.
Stanley’s expedition accompanied the scientific
corps, and most of the press correspondents did
not accompany the engineers who were escorted
by Gen. Custer’s detachment, but followed the
old abandoned route of South Heart River,
heuce the description of the region traversed by
the main commaud does not apply to the coun
try traversed by the new route for the rail
The directors of the company have accepted
the Dew line recommended bv Gen. Rosser.from
Bismarck, the present end of the track, to Yel
lowstone crossing, and have called for proposals
to grade and bridge this section of the 205 miles.
The expedition is now prosecuting the survey
westward up the left hank of. the Yellowstone
to Pompey’s Pillar, where it will join the sur
vey made last year from the west, and thus
complete the surveyed line across the continent.
The entire commaud is expected to return to
Fort Rice about October 1st.

New York, Aug. 15.—One of the women
arrested in Brooklyn last night, is Mrs.Weston,
wife of the one armed man found horribly
I murdered a week ago near Albany, and in her
possession was found a seven barrelled revolver

empty. Another woman, uuknown, was also
arrested. They were all fonnd in Westou’s
house on Palmetto street, Brooklyn, in half of

cupying the other part. Weston, the murdered
man was a one armed soldier, and sold prize
packages for a living, and the day ho left
Brooklyn, he drew a considerable amount of
money from the bank.
