Grant’s Flank Movement. «s ItIs now generally believed that Lee will tall back on Richmond, if he can do so with any degree of isfety to hii army. He may make a stand on the South Anna, the last river towards Richmond. Flank movements are generally considered not only difficult but also dangerous in lace of a powerful enemy. This movement of Grant shows that ho feels strong and able to take care of his army in the open field. Gen. Sherman Is “marching on” towards Atlanta. AU his movements arc character ized by good generalship and pregnant with momentous consequences to the rebels. Gen. Batter remains in his intreuebments, and is probably waiting for further demonstrations on the part of Grant. No doubt he prevents Beauregard from reinforcing Lee, and that is ooe of the main objeota of this expedition The war news has an encouraging look. Meeting ot the School Committee. The monthly meeting of the Superintend ing School Committee was held at their room on Monday evening, 23d inst., Joseph C. Noyes, Baq., in the chair. Bills for incidental expenses were received, and those which were duly certified, allowed. The resignation of Abby M. Bailey, Frincip&i of No. 4 Primary School, was accepted. She commenced teaching in this city twenty-one yean ago. The hours of the High snd Willis Schools, until the close of the present year, are to be from 8 o’clock to 12 1-2 o’clock. A resolution was introduced fixiug the hours of the High and Willis schools, alter the 1st of September, from 9 to 12 A. M., and from 2 to 5 P. M., which resolution was laid on the ta ble until the next regular meeting. A resolution to re-district, so as to equalize the attendance at the different schools, was referred to the sub-committees of the Park and Centre Street Boys’ Grammar schools with instruction to provide temporarily for the re lief of Park Street School, and to report a a plan for the future. A motion to dispense with the services of a Music Teacher was laid on the table until the next meeting. The committee of estimates recommended an addition of $50, in most cases, to the sala ries of eack of the Teachers of the Grammar, Intermediate and Primary Schools—of $25 each to the salaries of the teachers in the Willis School. The salary of the Principal of the High School was fixed at $1,200 — the assistant master, at $700—the assistant mis tress, $500, and each of the six assistants, $300 —the music teacher $500—the Island teach ers $500. The report of the committee was accepted, subject to the approval of the city Council. The whole amount of estimated expenditures for next year, is $39,218, being an excess of $3,435 over the current year. The school year commeuces in September. Letter Iron the ;8tate Capital. Augusta, May 25, 1804. TV Ike RdUor qf the Press: Maine has lost more heavily In populatioi to bar sixe, than any loyal State in the Union daring the late battles, if not, ludeed, mon than any other at all events. The loss in some regiments, In both officers and men, is fright fal, bat with not more than a single exception they hare all behaved gloriously, aud like al Maiue troops heretofore, have reflected dls Unguished honor on the State which they rep resent. The Maine State Agency at Washington, b doing all in its power for our wounded sol diers. It is a pity that at this time of all oth ers, the Agency should be so short of funds ea to be unable to purchase the actual neces saries of life for the suffering wouuded, when our people have always contributed so liberal ly to the Sanitary aud Christian Commis •iodis. ,i Adjutant General Hodsdon is collecting the likenesses of officers of Maine organizations, for an Illustrated Roster. The pictures &z c preserved in mammoth albums, each page con taining twelve cartel de viiitei. He has hun dreds already of these photographs, and is en deavoring to obtain those of eveiy other per son who is, or ever has been an officer in any Maine organization during the rebellion.— Friends of deceased officers are solicited to forward pictures of them for preservation in this collection. It will be a very interesting and valuable assortment when completed, and will grow more and more so as time advan ce*. If the editor of a certain evening paper in your city, was as well versed In the geography of Virginia as he is in abbreviations, he would know that the names of the four rivers which unite and form the Mattapony, are each sylla bles of the name of the latter, so that the riv er Ny is not the New York river, as he, for Mveral days past, has persisted in calling it. The death-warrant of Spencer, who mur dered Warden Tinker, has been made out aud forwarded to the sheriff of Knox county.— Friday, June 24th, Is the day fixed for the ex ecution. There has been for a long ti me a correspon dence going on between the State authorities and the Adjutant General at Washington in relation to a discrepancy between the records, by which Maiue has received credit lor (184 men lets than she has actually furnished. The authorities at Washington persisted in deny ing the accuracy of auy records but their own and consequently refused to allow the number claimed. The importance of a little red tape and of scrupulous exaction and care In having an accurate record of everything kept in the State, as well as of the successful manner in which this has been done, will be evident to every one when he learns that the superior correctness of our •State records have been proved to the satisfaction of the War Department, and that tho 084 disputed men have been placed to the credit of the State. A portion of the soldiers wounded in the late battles for whom Governor Cony has ob tained permission to be sent to this State, are expected to arrive hero this afternoon under charge of Hon. E. W. Stetson, of Damaris cotta. The barracks here are rapidly being fitted up for their accommodation aud it is expected that at least live hundred will be sent here. The Governor is still absent in Washington where It is not unlikely he may prolong his stay, if he can be of sufficient service there to warrant it. The disinterested authorities of this city recognizing the principle of saving at the’ spigot and wasting at the bung, allow carria ges to run against one auother in the dark ness of the evening, when even the usual, Mint gaslights would prevent such collisions, and oost the city much less than to pay dam ages on injured persons and broken vebicies. r Yours truly, Uklios. ... jjar.i»^.■■■■ ■ - Casualty* |„ the He. 17th, May .rith and 6th.

Slackpole, Klijah P. Lewis, Jefferson Ma bry, Charles K. Jordan, Hubbard Wilson, Geo W. Parker. Letter from Rev. Mr. Lovering. The following letter written from Freder icksburg, May 19tU, by Itov. Jos.F. Lovering, chaplaiu of the 17th Regiment, to Rev. Dr. Boeworth of this city, will be read with in terest. We commend his suggestion* to all the friends of the sick and wounded soldiers : Rev. and DeakSib:—I have a few min utes to myself after a very weary day’s work among our brave aud Buffering wounded. * * • Concerning the Maine Cauip Hospital Association in whose work yon are Bpecially interested, let me say that it is worthy of the highest commendation. Mrs. Mayhew arrived here on the morning of the 12th inst., in com pany with our State Agent, Mr. Hayes, and Mrs. Sampson who has been stationed as you know at Washington. Mr. Hayes has beeu very efficient, laboring in every possible way both In active personal ministry among the wounded and in facilitat ing the work ot others. Mrs. Mayhew and Mrs. Sampson, joined like two sisters in their Samaritan spirit, have shown the most inces sant and zealous sympathy aud the most con stant and painstaking tenderness. Of course I do not write all this from my personal observation merely. I might per haps appear partial in my judgment if unsup ported. Indeed I have only had yesterday and to-day’s experience among the wounded in this city. My work has been in the front close by our brave and heroic 17th,and there I should be now if so many of the dear fellows were not here needing all the help I can give them. But, I know it will please you to learn that belore I knew that Mrs. M. or Mrs S. were here, ♦heard the boys speaking in the highest terms of them, and by their descrip tion and after acknowledgment I knew that it was your agent of whom they spoke. Dear Sir, let me beg of you to use all yonr influence to stay their hands. How long the battle will rage about them we cannot tell, but hold up tbeir bauds full of wine and oil, aud the great agony that follows war as a black shadow shall be alleviated if it cannot be escaped. Allow me to say to you, what 1 have said to others many and many a time — ‘the Maiue Camp Hospital Association is a Providence.’ It is a noble Christian blessing. It brings the great love of home close to those who battle tor home, and lays a cool hand on the feverish brow aud gives strength to the fainting spirit. It is a noble auxiliary to the Christian Commission, which gives its bounties upon bended knees, praying the Lord Jesus to bless the soul, while all physical necessities besides are satisfied. I believe you have had some witness of the terrible effects of war amonf the wounded at Gettysburg. Without some such experience you could lorrn no conception of the terrible condition of those in this city. It is the hab itation of suffering, the most distressing — even because it is borne so nobly. O that our prayers could be more constant and fer vent for these brave men, God Uelp them to endure—God help those at home to send com fort and health. God help us, who are here, to be faithful to our work. Casualties in the eleventh Maine. The following clipped from the Boston Jour nal, 1s the list of casualties in the 11th Me., Col. H. M.

Bandage* for the Wounded. To the Editor of the Bouton Journal: In The Journal of May 20, Dr. W. T. G. Morton who visited the late pattle-flelds, says: What mu need more than anything else, are bandages of old cotton or linen, as they have nothing but new cloth, wlitch is rough upon the wounil and will not absorb moisture. Can we lie upon our comfortable beds at home, while husbands, fathers, brothers aDd sons are thus suffering and do nothing to re leive them ? Let ns each give one sheet im mediately for baudages, even though wc iie on bare mattresses ourselves. Think of pine troughs for a bed, with rag ged wounds, amputated limbs, aud rough bandaget, then freely give, aud tlod and the soldier will bless. A Woman.

They are youug, en ergetic and persevering business men, who are determined to secure success by actual merit. Their stock of School Books,' Station ery, Boom Papers, Ac., is equal to anything ever offered iu the state, and as Blank Book manufacturers they have few if any superiors.

New York, May 25. The Herald's correspondent says of the light at Milford Station, that French’s battery en tertained the rebels while the cavalry force flanked the position, when they beat a hasty retreat, leaving behind a battery, six officers and sixty men, besides quantities of delicacies, wearing apparel, Ac., sent up from Richmond the day before. The World’s correspondent says of General Grant’s last movement, “ Gen. Hancock mov ed on the night of the 20th, flanked the right wing of the enemy, and formed a line of bat tle south-west of the Mattapony River, in a commanding position. The country therea bout indicated that it had not suffered from the desolation of war. Much corn and fodder of last year remain. As secret as the movement was, it was known to the rebels before hand, and only the day before got off their wounded and army supplies from Milford Station. Milford had always been an important depot. At midnight the rebels were driven from an intrenched position. We captured six com missioned officers and sixty men belonging to Ewell’s eorps. Lee in a Tight Place. New York, May 25. The Herald’s correspondent says General Grant occupies the railroad between the rebel army and Richmond, over which Lee has transported all the supplies for his array. Lee must cut his way through the web in which he is entangled, and march his army Richmond ward, or he must crush the Army ol the Potomac where it lies. Another correspondent says it Is now a race to see who shall first reach the next line of rebel defences, supposed on the North Anna. Lee is a trifle ahead. On the afternoon of the 21st Gen. Wright was attacked, but he soon put the rebels to flight. A dispatch from “ Carleton ” to the Boston Journal, dated Headquarters, 24th, states that the whole of Grant’s army is across the North Anna River, and the rebels repulsed in all their attempts to stop us. The impression is that Lee is really making for Richmond, hav lng given up all hopes of stopping us short of that Farioue Items. New York, May 25. The Tribune says Gen. Sigel has been ap pointed by Gen. Hunter to command the re serve division guarding the Baltimore A Ohio Railroad. The Times’ correspondent with Gen.

Howes, before reported, was bu. nt on the 20th of March, in lat 14 40 N, Ion 33 W, by the privateer Florida, Morris commander. The ship was laden with guano, from Howland’s Island, in the raciiic.aud was bound to Queenstown, for orders. Capt liowes continued in the Florida until April 4th, when he and some of his crew were transferred to the barque F Milly, from Mauritius for London. Ten of tbe Avon’s crew jained the pirates. Accounts from Melbourne, of March 24, state that a suspicious steamer, supposed to be a Confederate privateer, has been seen recently off Cape Otway. This tfa.* very much discredited American tonnage there. Ship Jack Frost, Emery, which has been trading between Melbourne and Ottago NZ, is much out of time, and it is feared she had foundered.
