YORK COUNTY. Chvles W. Snow v. Albert P. Gould. Rescript by Peters. J.—A client wrote to his coun sel to commence a suit for divorce at an ea ly day, so that his wife woul* have t?me to think the mat ter over, and perhaps consent to a private senara t on. and thereby avoid as much public scandal as possible He aiso oraliy instructed his counsel to withdraw tbe libel.if a fury trial could n >t be avoid ed. In the trial of a suit between the counsel and the client to determine the amouut of tne compen sation whi<*h the count-el should receive for services in obtaining a divorce, the counsel was allowed to put the wtitten and oral internet ons in evidence to •how the nature of tbe engagement and tbe servi ces performed. Held, that the same shr-uld not have been excluded as confidential communications. An agreement between parties to a divorce, declar ing the erms upon which a divorce may be de creed, does not necessari y show connivance or col lusion. Where no fiaud is intended to be thereby practiced upon the «ourt. and no facts are sup pressed, such an agreement, although to be careful ly looked into by the court, may be entirely unob jectionable. When a questio- arises as to the words of an interrogatory put to a witness, the judge not having a personal recollection, «ud the c unsel not agreeing about it, may adopt it as found in the Court reporter’s short hand notes.

Further particulars received by the owners Of the Bchoouer J W. Sawyer yesterday, fully confirm the previous reports of the total loss of the vessel and the drowning of three of her crew. The schooner was wrecked last Wed nesday on a small ledge about four miles from Swan's island. Some of the men got to Mar shall’s Island. Boats came from Swan’s Is land to the rescue and succeeded in getting all but three of the crew 6afely to land. Nothing whatever was saved from the wreck. The crew were badly used up but are now recover ing rapidly, aud will be at heme as soon as there is a vessel coming this way. A despatch from Bar Harbor last night says the three men lost were drowned while trying to reach the ledge. The captain was washed back three times, but was fiually pulled upon the ledge in an exhansted and frozen condi tion by one of the crew. Ooe man—James Bolten—bad his leg broken. The survivors remained on the ledge sheltered only by a piece of sail aud barely kept from freezing by a small fire of driftwood until Thursday after noon, when they succeeded in reaching Mar shall Island in the only dory saved. On Fri day help was obtained from Swan’s Island and the survivors taken there aud cared for. An Old Commission Rev. Joseph Stcckbridge, D. D., of Plain field, N. J., lias placed in Rev.

School Committee. The new Board met by order of the Mayor last evening for organization, His Honor Mayor Deoring presiding. Present, Messrs. Holden, Files, Merrill, Fox, Bradley and Briggs. The hew members of the Board having qual fied, their certificates Were placed on file. The request of the inhabitants of Long Is land for the Spring term to begin somewhat later than the first of April, and that they be allowed a Winter term, was brought before the Board by the Superintendent of Schools. This was laid over for future consideration. The Superintendent of Schools called the at tention of the Board to the tad accident which occurred Monday at the North School, explain ing the circumstances. Mr. Fox reported that he had visited the North School Tuesday aud had carefully in quired into the casualty, and cannot find that blame attaches to any one but the boy himself, as all children are absolutely forbidden to ap proach the stair-rail in going up and down stairs. Voted That the Supervisors of the North ScHool examine the railing aud make such fur ther protection as seems necessary. The committee proceeded to ballot, and made choice of H. P. White to take the school census the present spring, and decided that the matter of arranging the compensation and other particulars be referred to the chairman of this board with power. It was moved aud voted, that a committee on estimates aud expenditures bo appoiu'ed by the chair. Messrs. Holden, Fox aud Bradley were appointed that committee. A committee on farther assi n moots, con sisting of Messrs. Merrill, Files aud Fox, was appointed. Voted, That the secretary of the Board be authorized and requested to call a special meeting when this committee on assignments is ready to report. Mr. Holden announced that he had, by au thority of the board, opened an additional room for the surplus scLool children in the Chestnut Street School; he also calls the at tention of the board to the absolute necessity of refitting the Chestnut Street School house the present season. The necessity of finishing two additional rooms in the new Sbailer School bouse was re ferred to, but no action taken. Adjourned. The Vote on Assistant Engineers. Yesterday’s Argus says of the vote taken on Monday night on Assistant Engineers of the Fire Department. “The first four named being Republican candidates, it was clear that add ing the fourteen votes cast for Murphy to the lowest number cast lor any one of the Repub licans, sixteen, and thirty is the result; show ing that two more votes liad been thrown than there were legitimate voters. So they con' eluded to vote again, and vote for each engi neer separately, not for ell together.” The facts in the case are these. The com mittee to sort and count the votes returned the following renort; Wliole number of votes.28 Necessary to a choice.15 Charles I>. Shillings Lad.2b Abert s. Mitchell.28 Ch-rli-s W. Cushing. 16 Robert W. Jackson .16 Robert IS. Murphy. 14 David S. Ring. 12 The whole number of votes last then—for no scattering were reported—was the sum total of the vote cast tor all six candidates. Add up the column from, and including Skillings, and yon get 112 Votes. Divide by four, the number of assistant engineers to be elected, aod you get 28 the number of ballots thrown. Again the two votes Skillings lost were added to Murphy who had two more than the other Democratic candidate Ray. The vote was however reconsidered, under an honest mis conception and Mitehell, Skillings, Murphy and Jackson elected. — Personal Mr. C. H. True was prostrated by an attack of faintness yesterday in M. C. H. Farley’s store. Dr. Burr called it an attack of indiges tion. < Dr. D. W.

Capt. Hartley, whose suicide in New York was reported yesterday, was born in this State in 1839, and entered the army on August 14, 1862, as a private in Company E of the Eighth Regiment Minnesota Volunteers. He rose rapidly in the ranks, and was commissioned capcain of the Twenty-second Infantry on July 28, 1866. About four months ago Capt. Hartley threw up his commission. Me was at one time a clerk in the Treasury Department at Washington. His uncle is a bank president at Saco. Mrs. George T. Davis is lying very ill at her residence on Spring street. Mr. Benjamin L. Cleaves, at one time a prominent citizen of Chicago, was drowned in that city on Thursday last. He was born in Portland about fifty years ago, and leaves a widow and seven children. He served gallant ly in a Chicago battery during the war and was afterward coroner of Cook county. Maine Women in the South. Maine is represented in the South among the Freedmen by the following ladies: Miss A. E. Farrington, Portland, missionary at Wilming ton, N, C.; Mary K. Lunt, New Gloucester, missionary at Selma, Ala.; Miss E. P. Hayes, Limerick, missiouary at Raleigh, N. C.; Nellie L. Cloudman, South Windham, teacher at At lanta, Ga.; S. L. Emerson, Hailowell, instruc tor in Tougalow University, Miss.; Hannah A. Lord, Center Lebanon, instructor in Straight University, New Orleans, La.; Mary E. Sands, Saco, instructor at Atlanta University, Ga ; Miss Ruth E. Stinson, Woolwich, assistant in Ls Moyne School, Memphis, Tenn.; Miss Mari’ Duren Hyde, formerly of Bangor, teacher at Wilmington, N. C. These women are doing a noble work under the auspices of the American Missionary Association. The Maxim Light. The Maxim incandescent light has been put in Schlotterbeck’s by the New England Wes ton Electric Company, and attracted much attention. The lights are claimed to be six teen to twenty-four caudle power, and the dynamo used is self-regulating, the power being supplied by the company’s works in the rear of Lancaster Building. About thirty lights are used, and also several half lights. They all burned with perfect steadiness last night. It is expected a number of other firms will take the light. The First Baptist Church. Services at the recognition of Rev. A. P. K Smali, D. D., as pastor of the First Baptist church will be held this evening, at half-past asven o'clock. Rev. A. J. Gordon, D. D., o* Boston, will preach the sermon. There wil1 be addresses of welcome by Rev. J. McWhiu nie, Rev. W. H. Fenn and Rev. J. Ricker, D. D., to which Dr. Small will respond. The services cannot fail to be of more than ordinary interest. A Boston correspondent of the Mirror writes: “Dr. Webb’s is my church when in Boston, but on stormy Sundays I go to Dr. Gordon’s, which is very near. The Baptists are very strong in Boston, and Dr. Gordon's is one of the best churches. In this church Mr. Moody held his inquiry meetings, and the in terest of that period seems never to htive de clined in this society. It is not uncommon for five or six hundred to attend the evening prayer-meeting, and conversionsjand baptisms are many. Their hospitality is cdrdial and personal. Let me sit where I may, the pew owner or occupant says at the close of service, ‘I am glad to see yon, and hope you will come again and sit with us.’ Gall this policy, if you will, or propagandism, but it is agreeable, certainly, and Christian. The edifice is large, cruciform, and exceedingly comfortable, the organ powerful, and the music by the chorus choir sufficiently art'Stic, while all the music, congregational or otherwise, is devotional. Dr. Go/don is a slrong, 6quarely-built man, fifty years old, gray hair, smooth face, and serious manner. He is one of the manliest and most earnest men one meets in Boston, and is a leader in all manner of reforms. His theology on essential points is most uncompromising, but it never offends or impels; it is winsome al ways, and for two reasons. One is, it is pro found and solemn conviction, and very tender in its utterances; another is, he never projects himself, there being an entire absence of egotism and self-consciousness. His personal ity is great, but tho greatuees is due to bis (lb sorption in his theme, his work. Ministers, workers of any kiud, may thus learn the true secret of success.” Matched Race on Back Cove. The matched race on Back Cove, postponed Saturday owing to the storm, took place at 3.30 o’clock yesterday afternoon. The following trotters contested for a purse of $25: Fannie M , owued by Mr. Gerrish; Patchen, by Mr. Milliken; Barney, by Ira Woodbury, and Flirt, by Mr. Ramsdell. There was a very laige crowd in attendance and the course was a half mile over the ice. The trotting was very square and very pretty. The race, in five heats, was won by Patchen. Time not taken. The first heat was gained by Barney, the sec ond by Flirt, and the third, fourth, and fifth by Patchen. Valentine C. Hall and Charles Cobb were the judges. The Weber Club. The annual meeting of the Weber Club was held last night and the following ofiiceis were chosen for the ensuing year: President—H. L. Houghton. Vice President—C. .1 Sietson. Secretary—D. Page Perkins. Treasurer—Carl Weber. * Librarian—F. H. Little. Conductor—John Morgan. Assistant Conductor—rratik W Shaw. Investigating Committee—John Morgan, W. C. Lambert, C. J. Stetson.

The financial re port showed that there was a surplus fund in the treasury and all bills were paid. Serious Accident. Lincoln W. Foster, a yard man for the Bos ton & Maine Road, was attempting to draw a pin connecting two freight cars, in the yard yesterday morning early, when his foot slip ped and lie fell. A car wheel passed over one leg, breaking it, and seriously injuring the other. The injured man was takan to the Maine General Hospital where the surgeons were unable to tell what the result might be. Foster is about 24 years old THE SCHOOLS. Some Practical Points Made. To the Editor of the Press: It has been interesting and at times instruc tive to read the articles iu reference to our schools which have appeared iu the Press from time to time. Some of these evidently have beeu written by persons who have but little practical knowl dge upon the subject. They have beeu mere effusions—an airing of vague ideas. The writer has refrained from entering the arena as a contributor, for the reason, first, that he has felt that the subject was so vast and comprehensive, that it should be treated by those who have had the greatest practical experience iu school matters, and secondly, he is not in the habit of writing for the press. But, Mr. Editor, if you will allow me space, I will dilate a little upon a recent article which appeared in your columns iu reference to the position in writing and the materials for the same, since, as I shall show I have had practi cal experience in these matters for over seven years. The newness given to the oblique posi tion of the body and copy book to the desk in writing would seem to indicate that it was the results of recen' observations and discussions This will appear a little curious to those who have had practical experience in teaching pen manship, since by this test it will be found in most cases that this position will be tbe best one, whatever position may have been adopted at first. I was taught this position more than twenty years ago by the now Honorable John P. Swasey of Canton, and for seven years as a teacher iu Oxford, Androscoggin aud Cumber land counties,iu public and private schools,and as teacher of penmanBbip in Hebron Academy, Westbrook and Gorham Seminaries I taught this position of the body and copy-book iu writing. As principal of the City Reform School for Boys of Boston, I Dot only taugh t this position iu my own department but I in sisted upon its being carried out by the teach, ers in the several departments under my charge. By the request of the Supervisor of the Schools of this county, wliSn that officer was in existence, I gave lectures at teachers’ meetings in which I insisted that not ouly the oblique position of the body and copy book to the desk in writing was the best one, in most cases, bat that a lignt surface with dark ma terials was better than a dark surface with light materials to use in writing, aud I advised that teachers buy blank book paper and lead pencils to use instead of using slates and slate pencils, since the paper and pencil would not oniy assist the pupil to learn to write with the pen belter, but that I had found they were much more agreeable, especially to those who had weak eyes. As a pupil of Mr. Shaylor’s in the excellent Portland Busii ess College conducted by Mr. Gray, aud a knowledge of the fact that he was a pupil of Piatt R. Silen cer, the originator of the now beautiful system of penmanship, distinctly American, and-my acquaintance with other distinguished teachers of penmanship, I am prepared to state that Mr. Sbaylor stands without a superior in the department to which he is specially devoted, and it is safe to leave these matters to him. My observations while abroad, especially as a member of I he Seventh International Medical Congress held in London, the largest gathering of medical men ever known, men from all parts of the civilized world, leads me te think th it tee Americans, if not far superior, are at least abreast with any other nation in practical matters, so that it is not very essential to know what they are saying elsewhere upon these sub jects since the coud.tions are somewhat differ ent from ours. There has been considerable written of late in regard to the effects of faulty positions of tbe body at school upon the spinal column, aud it is urged that the body is not iu frequently kept in an incorrect position for a long time aud tbuB disease of tbe spine is in duced. It is true that in some schools the desks are ill adapted to the child and improve ments can and will probably be made, hut the teacher of experience knows well how. hard it is to keep a pupil iu any position very long at a time, even long enough in many cases for the committee to inspect\hem. So that although it is not deuied that disease of the spine is not Infrequently induced by a faulty position of the body, it must be admitted that the disease is often tbe result a constitutional condition, which might have developed iDto a spinal af fection or seme oilier disease, under other and different conditions. Our school committee have been assailed in various ways. It is not proposed to def nd them for they are capable of doing'hat i'hemselves. They have a deli cate aDd difficult task to perform and probably have done what ihey thought best, without money or price and therefore it seems hard to censure them. There is only one thing more that will he considered and that is tbe Leigli type, which is used in tbe primary departments. This type, to state it miloly, is doing a good deal of injury to the eyes of the children and teachers who use it. Two years ago, I procured two of ttieBe books aud put them iu the bands of parties who knew nothing about the type and asked them to read the articles to the children. Upou asking them sometime after how they liked the books the first remark was that the print made their eyes ache iu reading it al though in ordinary reading they never had any trouble. Several teachers have cot suited me iu regard to their eves, iu whom the diffi culty was induced by the use of this type. They are requned to print this type on black hoards daily, distinct enough to tie ► eu at a distance, and these black boards are often be tween two windows. The color of tiie black board has a tendency to cause the pupil of tbe eye to ailaic, while the lateral rays of bright light from the windows together with conver gence and accommodation of the eye, tend to contract the pupil, thus two antagonistic con - —,—■— -—“ I dltions are constantly at work which just bo conitantly irritates the eye. If this type most be used, why have it printed on white or better tinted linen paper with black ink which would make it much less irritable to the child's eyes and save a great deal of time and I ttiguicg eye work to the teacher.

The Government Chemist Analytes two of the Leading Baking Powders, and what he finds them made of I have examined samples of "Cleveland’s Superior Baking Powder” and "Royal Baking Powder," purchased by myself in this city, and I find they contain: "Cicrrlnail’i Sniwrior linking Powder.” Cream of Tartar Bicarbonate ot Soda Flour Available carbonic acid gas 12.01 per cent, equivalent to 118.2 cubic inches of gas per oz. ot Powder. "Royal linking Powder.” Cream of Tartar Bicarbonate of Soda" Carbonate of Ammonia Tartaric Acid Starch Available carbonic acid gas 12.40 per cent, equivalent to 116.2 cubio incl.es of gas per oz. of Powder. Ammonia gas 0.43 per cent, equivalent to 10.4 cubic inches per oz. of Powder. Note.—The Tartaric Acid was doubtless in troduced as tree acid, but subsequently com bined with ammonia, and exists in the Powder hb a Tartrate of Ammonia. E. G. LOVE. Ph. D. New York, Jan'y 17th, 1881. The above shows conclusively that “Cleve land’s Superior” is a strictly pure Cream of Tartar Baking Powder. It has also been analyzed by Professor Johnson of Yale Col lege; Dr. Genth of the Uuiverslty of Pennsyl vania: President Morton of Stevens Institute; Win. M. Habirsbaw, F. C. 8..
