Postmasters’ Salaries.
Under the bill for the adjustment of post,
masters’ salaries, passed by Congress just be
fore adjournment, the offices in Maine now in
the seoond class, which will probably be reduc
ed to the third, are those in Auburn, Bath,
Calais, Gardiner, Haliowell, Rockland, Saco
and Waterville. These offices each pay a sala
ry now from §2,000 to *2,300 per an num. Un
der the new law the salaries of these offices,
taking out tho expenses for rent, etc., will
probably be diminished to from *800 to *1.200
a year. AgaiD, under the new law, Augusta
and Portland only will remain in the first class,
BaDgor falling to the second, that office, with
Biddetord and Lewiston, being tbo only offices
under the head of the latte* class. But while
the salaries of many offices in the first, second
and third clafs will be contracted, the fourth
class offices, under which most of the country
offices now come, will pay even tetter than
they do now._

Ad audience filling two-thirds ot the seats
in City Hall, and composing an assemblage as
critical and brilliant as is ever brought to
gether at a concert in this city, listened to the
delightful entertainment afforded by the
Boston Symphony Orchestra last night. The
programme was most carefully selected to
please the various tastes of the auditors, and
yet there was no one number that could be
called so severely classical—iu the popular
meaning of the word—as to prove tedious to
the average cencert-goer. Among the com
posers represented were Schumann. Wagner,
Rubonstsin, Von Weber, Reinecke, GrauD,
Vleuxtemp and Hiller.
The principal number of the concert was
Schumann’s Sympbouy iu D minor, teeming
with the vigor aud origiualty (that always
marked the great composer’s symphonic work)
in the allegro movement, and full of poetry
and melody in the romanza. The superb drill
of the large band of musiciaus, with their ex
cellent shading was fully brought out iu the
symphony. In the overture to Taunhaeuser
so familiar to all concert-goers, it was inspir
ing to note amidst the rushing and whirling of
the accompaniment, like the rush and whirl of
the storm; or the raging of mighty waters,
how the grand motif went as steadily on as
A charming feature of the evening was the
little caprieeio, called “The Sentiuel,” by
Heller. If no name had been given to it on
the programme the least imaginative person
oould have supplied it. With its steady
march, like the solitary continuous tramp of
the sontry; with the occasional rattle of the
drum announcing the change of guard; with
the clash of the presenting arms, aud with all
these different features brought out with mil
itary precision, without hurry or attending dis
tractions, the composition thoroughly warmei^
up the audience who demanded au euooro but
failed to get it. Then there was the beaut .
ful. yet melancholy, “Eutr’ Acte” from Mau
fred, aud tbe entertainment fitly dosed with
the beautiful ballet music from "Feramors.”
Mrs. Heuschel delighted everybody with her
maguificeut rendering of Grauu’s aria. The
perfection of her style aud her fiue voice
which gave such an intelligent interpretation

bowed to her encore. Mr. Listeinauu’s su
perb technique was admirably displayed iu his
rendering ot the fautasy on the quaint aud
interesting Sclavonic airs, while the aceorn
panimem by the orchestra added no little to
their enjoyment.

crowded every part of the house, was attracted
as much by her fame as anything else. The
great violinist contributed several charmi ng
selections, notably among which was the
"Witches' Dance,” by Paganini. This was
played with especial grace aud delicacy, aud
was of itself a sufficient reward for attendance
at the entertainment. Miss Marguerite Hall

An Indian Graveyard on House Island.
Mr. W. G. Kimball of BridHon furnishes the
Transcript with the following description of an
Indian graveyard ou House Island.
“During the summer of 184c, whilst superin
tending the present earth works at Fort Scarn
mell on House Island, Portland harbor, in
inakii g an excavation for soil to build the
works, the workmen came upon an ancient
burial ground. That it was Indian, was appar
ent from the fact that the interments were
made iu a sitting posture of the b dies. The
location of the hod was on the westerly side of
the island, near the point of land fending
towards the city. The soil of this place was
deeper than at any other part of the island,
somewhere shout eight or nine feet to the rocks
Being one day at some other part of the
works, word came to me that the laborers at
excavating bad for some cause stopped work
ing. Upon going to the spot I found the re
mains of a human body bad been unearthed.
The method of excavating earth, when a
large amount is to be done, is as follows: To
dig under a large mass with pick and shovel.
Then goon the bank above with iron bars aud
wedges and cave off a large body into ihe pit
below, where it is easily shovelled into carts
and barrows. I found iu making one of these
"throw offs” the split came nearly in
the middle yif two interments. There
were the remains right before m; eye*, with
a good chance to examine them. One otthem
had the upper part of ttie skull entire, so that
I took it out of its place In the bank; many ef
the bones were whole in form, but upon taking
hold of them they dropped to powder in the
hand. The sitting posture was plain, occupy
ing vertically about three feet. From discoior
tion and partial cavities it was evident that
the bodies were placed in a kind of case
formed by weaving some kind of material in
and out around poles that constituted the
frame work, which conformed to Ihe shape of
the body; large at the top and small at tbs
1 ottom.
rue otuer lutcruieiji, at liiiow oir inure
have been made at a much earlier date, a* all
of the bones bad crumbled to earth, even tbe
skull. There was tbe exact shape of the body
in the marked discoloration of the earth. Over
each of them were depressions of the earth,
caused by the caving in as tbe bodice decayed,
shown by tbe strata
It required no small amount of talk and per
suasion to get the men to their work, as tbe
Irish, as a whole, are very superstitious; not
until I bad got a bole dug at some distance
away, and carried all that would bold together
and had them covered up, would the men re
sume work.
As the excavation progressed we came upon
others, all in a state of complete decay. Some
times tbe “throw off” came in the middle as
the first described, at other times with the mass
of earth came decayed fragments.
Now it is evident this must have been a gen
eral burying place, and for some considerable
length of time, as the earliest only showed
markings anil discolorations, others at a later
date gave the form and substance of the bones,
yet later tbe one with the skull entire.
Why this spot was selected as a burial spot,
by wbat tribe of Indians, and when were these
Interments made, are questions X leave with
those who are better posted in Indl u history
than myself.
Tuesday afteruoon, a little fellow named
Jimmy Williams, about eight or nine years

As Soon Prom a Massachusetts Point of
The Brookline Chronicle lins au article ou
the schools, which is as applicable lo Maine as
to Massachusetts. It reads as follow s:
Notwithstanding the faot that much of the
inaugural of our new governor, touching the
school question, seems absurd and unauthentic,
still there are points in it worthy our consider
ation, and that will set adrift a raft of theories
concerning this great problem. Is it not a fact
that the statutes governing onr educational
system, ana under which our State board of
education act are defective, and fail very wide
ly of reaching the requirements of the times?
It may not be possible to enact Iswb in the»o
matters which shall bear equitably upon every
town In the commonwealth. If this bo so,
then tli© largest liberty should be provided
each city and town for enactiug such laws as
shall meet their various wants and constantly
changing condition. Each city and towu of
the State shall make this all important ques
tion more of a study than at present, and not
leave it altogether to a board or committee, al
ready overtaxed by their Individual cares, and
hampered in their duties by a sot of statutes
a most, u not atiogeiner, iiionoruuve.
Take our own Brookline schools as an exam
pie, than which perhaps there are none better
as a whole, in the Slate. The State lawH de
mand the support of a High school, will) a
teacher to give instruction In the Greek, Latin
and Frenoh languages, etc. The past year, out
of an average attendance in ail our schools oi
about 1,100 pupils, less thau eight per cent., or
only about eighty-five as an average, reached
onr High school. Again, out of our appropri
ation for school* for years past, the High soiio l
has absorbed nearly, if not quite, oue-ttfth cf
the whole amount for the eight per ceut. of at
tendance. In other words it costs the towu
$27.40 per head for the pupils in the grammar
aud primary departments, us against $70 ja r
head for the advantages of a High school,
which the State demands.
Take one step further. The range of sala
ries paid our teachers is from $050, the first
year iu the primary departments, to $2,700 per
unuum, the salary of the principal of the High
school, Tills latter salary is paid for the privi
lege of maintaining a teacher of Latin aud
Greek, or the keepiug up of the so called Col
lege class- upon which the principal Is sup
posed to, and unquestionably does, devote the
bulk of his care aud energies.
We have slated that but about eight per ceut
of all our pupils avail themselves of this High
school course; aud now what Is the status oi
this college class? On turning to the commit
tee's report In the past reports of the towu we
get but a very little light upou the work of the
High school, two or tureo lines sufilcs. Cages
are given to the Grammar and Primary de
partments in the able report of the Superin
tendent, but his care does not extend to the"
musty shades of the classics, aud our commit
teemen are awed to dumbuess, so that it is on
ly by impertineut inquisitiveness that we leant
that this college class for several years has not
exceeded four or five pupils, that last year it
had but two, and this year but one single pu
pil, and be one of the two of last year who
was unsuccessful iu Ills college examinations
and returned on conditions.
i*u criucisui is imeuueu in uiis article upon
the merits or demerits of any teacher. It is
oar system that is under discussion, and not
perauus. But it would require no great degree
of head work to demonstrate from the abore,
that it would be money iu the town treasury to
transport every classical pupil in our schools to
Bostou or elsewhere and pay for tbelr tuition.
For, outside the single study of Greek, there
are undoubtedly twenty teachert today iu our
Brookline schools who are abundantly quali
fied to teach every other study uow taught in
our High school, teachers who are delving and
struggling with a mere pittance tor au income
as a compensation for the valuable time, labor
and vital strength employed, and yet compe
tent to till any position in oar public schools.
W.th tbe above facts before us we say, in
our ease, our high school course as uow insti
tuted is a failure and useless, aud 1 believe
every school committee-man who has had auy
experience with our high school would ac
knowledge. if he would give an unbiased opin
ion, that the conduct of its affairs has given
more anxiety than all the other schools in
town, and still remains a riddle. What then
Is the solution of this question, so far as
Brookline is interested, so that the greatest
good may accrue to the greatest number, aud
the real purpose to be attained of a common
school course. Not, we should say, by the nse
of any less money, but by using it wbeie it
will be most directly felt by the mass of pupils
whose only chance of an education to fit the m
for their life's work must be attained through
the common schools.
Experience has taught every one who has
had anything to do with o»rschool system that
the principal work must be and Is done in the
primary department. A first class Primary
school teacher is more valuable and more diffi
cult to find than any other grade of teachers.
Find a town or city in which the primary
schools excel, and you will as sorely find the
grammar departments there shewing a carrel
ponding superiority. There is no work done
in our public schools in Bfookline so laborious,
so brain and nerve taxlug, and withal so poor
ly compensated, as the teachers in the primary
department. First of all, then the kindergar
ten should be at once engrafted into our school
system. Another year should be given to the
grammar course, in which the higner English
branches, bookkeeping and perhaps the ele
ments of Latin should be taught, and the pres ’
nit cumbersome and expensive High school
tystem should be abolished. The extravagant
and useless salaries thus eliminated should be
added to the pay of teachers in the primary de
partments, where the real and lasting work is
done. It is to be hoped that our prrqpnt Legis
lature will, at least, so far reviseooreducation
al system, as to leave some discretionary pow
er with the vatious cities and towns, aud not
as now force them to maintain a course after
it shall have become so unwieldy, useless aud
extravagant ns the present High school de
partment of Brookline.
These reflections will seem sacrilege and al
most high treason to some who have gtowu to
regard the maintenance of our High School as
a public necessity. But the time has come
when these questions should be understood and
discussed by tbe people, aud some of the old
barnacles which have retarded judicious pro
gress sl-nighed off. Aud if the present Gov
ernor of Massachusetts is successful In arous
ing public attention to some of these minor
evils, which have become eucrusted upon the
body politic of the Slate, his administration,
after all, will not have beeo in vain.

$284,000 against only $217,000 In 1881 and

what was then a deficit of more than 980,000
into a balance of some $20,000 in favor of the

from dividends upon the Maine Central,
