Moore, Pastor. School Examinations. The Intermediate School, located ou Centra Street, we examined yesterday. This school was commenced some II ft ecu years ago as an experiment. There was found to be a large number of boys iu the primary schools who were so irregular in their attendance as to be come loo old to remain in those schools before they had the requisite attainments to admit them into the Grammar schools. To save the necessity of turuiug these boys out of school entirely, or of sending them to the Grammar schools before they were qualified to enter, tne intermediate bcbool was established. There is now no school iu tiie city under better discipline than this, or that appears to better advantage, counteracting circumstances Considered. There are 17(5 scholars regis tered; averaged attendance, 01; present at examination, 101; sent up for examination for admittance to the Grammar Schools, 30. This school is to occupy the old High School building on Spriug Street at the commence ment of the next term. Mr. Clarence C. Buck, Principal, and Miss Uichards, Assistant. Mr. • Buck has had charge of the school but one term, during which time he has given the clearest evidence that he is the right man in the right place. It was feared the high posi tion the school occupied under the long and faithful management of Mr. Wentworth could not lie maintained by a new teacher, hut gen tlemen of the committee who have been ac quainted with the school from its commence ment say it never appeared better. We con gratulate Mr. Buck and hit able assistant on their success thus far. St si) ay ScnooL Picnics.—The Park s :reet aud First Parish (Unitarian) Sunday Schools held their picnic yesterday at Quahog Island, going by the schooner Olive Elizabeth, towed by the tug Warrior. They had a good time as usual. The chowder and clam back got up by Mr. James Freeman was excellent, though the latter would have done better if it had been better done. It was stated on the Island that the first Sunday School excursion ever had in our city was got up by the Park street Society in Rev. Jason Whitman's lime, some twenty-live years ago—it was a sail in a large pleasure schooner among the islands. The St. Lawrence street Sunday School held their picnic yesterday at Diamond Cove, going by the schooner II. Prescott, towed by the Warrior. They had an excellent excur sion. The Central Church Sabbath School went to Buxton Grove by the York <t Cumberland cars. The attendance was good, aud a very pleasant tinxr was enjoyed by every one. All the arrangements made by the committee were handsomely carried out. Sudden Death.—Mr. Jacob Storer of Yarmouth, died suddenly in that town on Thursday. lie had complained the day prev ious of being unwell, but was about Thurs day morning be went into the leather manu factory, where he worked, sat dawn on a bench and said that he felt no better than he did the previous day, complaiuing about his head. In a few minutes he dropped back and was seized with a violent fit. Medical aid was immedi ately rendered, and he partially recovered from that attack, but was subject to’severe Bpasms for the space of an hour, his body swelling to great proportion, until the breath left it Coroner J. S. Gould, of this city, was called upon to view the body, and hold an inquesPlf deemed necessary. After hearing the state ment of the attending physician, who pro nounced it apoplexy, Mr. Gould deemed an inquest unnecessary. The deceased was about 50 years of age. He leaves a wife and oue grown up daughter. Harbor Fortifications.—We understand that the suspension of work at Fort Preble will not involve the discharge of the workmen employed there, as they will be transferred to other forts in the harbor. Indeed, this sus pension will probably be but temporary, al though it is believed that the character of the works there will be somewhat changed from the original plan, and so as to supplement the comprehensive system of defences now in contemplation by the Engineer Bureau, which, when completed according to the design, will make an impregnable fortress of this city. Fire in Saccahappa.—A small stable, be longing to George Warren, Esq., at Saccarap pa, containing about twenty five tons of hay, was destroyed by fire yesterday. The ice house near by, belonging to Mr. D. W. Clark, of this city, caught fire, aud the roof was de ttoyed, letting down one side of the building. sue ure occasioned irora smoKiug a pipe in the stable. There was a large lumber yard surrounding it, and but for the stilluess ol the atmosphere there would have been a destruc tive conflagration. Tiie New Loan.—The new loan is meet ing with extraordinary success. The sub scriptions in all the principal cities are very large, and still iucreasiug. In this city those who have a little money to invest are seeking the 7 3 10 bonds. The Casco Bank has re ceived large subscriptions. They receive them on as favorable terms as any other institution. Seven-Thirty Loan.—Subscribers to the new 7-30 loan will And it lo their advantage to subscribe at the First National Bank in this city, as this Hank allows a commission of 1 8 per cent, on oil sums ol $1,000 or over. The sale of the new 7-30's at the Bank yes terday amouuted to nearly $00,000. IIosik for Solbikrr,—The Directors of this institution will be busily engaged to-day preparing the house, so that it may be ready for the reception of soldiers on Monday. Probably our citizens may be called upon to day to subscribe something for this noble and benevolent object. „ Base Bali..—There is to be a match game of Base Ball this afternoon between the Rough * Ready Club and a picked nine Irom the other organizations of this city. The game will take place on the grounds near the Arsenal at 4 o'clock. Excursion.—The Photographers and Frame Makers of this city will close their rooms on Monday next, and make their annual excur sion to Old Orchard Beach. They anticipate a good time. U. S District Court. WAKE, J., Flit81 DING. Kkidat.—Claus Mindermeeu, libellant, vs Captain ol brig Brill. James Wallace, libellant, vs. Same. In these cases, which we reported last week, Judge Ware decreed that the libel of Minder nieen should be dismissed without costs, aud without prejudice to any suit that he might bring in any proper Court for the recovery of liis wages. In the case of Wallace, Judge Ware de creed $01 aud costs for libellant. Howard & Cleaves. Sliepley & Dana. Manuel Sanchez, libellant, vs. John Berry, captain of the brig Martha A. Berry. This is a libel brought by libellant against the respondent to recover balance of wages due him. The libellant does not understand the English language, nor is he acquainted with our currency. He contends when paid oil hu received but *10.50, when there was actually due him *50.50. The respondent contends that the libellant shipped as an able bodied seaman, but ou Ibe voyage found that lie had hut little knowledge of soamansbip, and claims that the amount paid him is al) that be is entitled to.

Hardculura of the -ment oh the •fatnea Hirer. Headquarter* Army Potomac, 1 July 28. j The arrival of some troops iu the vicinity of Bermuda Hundreds a day or two ago at Iractcd the atteutiou of the enemy and caused them to believe that au advance on Richmond by way ol Malvern Hill, was intended. A force of two rebel divisions was immediately withdrawn from Petersburg and sent down to check the movement. To counteract lids the 20th corps was detached and seut across the James river, and at half past six yesterday morning our advance met the rebel skirmish ers in open field opposite Jones’ Neck, with a battery in position at the edge of the woods. On the further side of the field a long lino of skirmishers was thrown out, who soon drove the rebels to their breastworks, where they were kept hotly engaged while a brigade of the first division moved arouud on the left of the enemy’s line, and getting on their flank charged and drove them froqi their guns into the woods, capturing 50 or 00 prisoners, four guns and a quantity of small arms. The enemy fell back ou reinforcements who occupied strong works, built there two years ago. Our troops followed taking up a posi tion in their front and flanks, and belore this reaches you the entire force may be captured or routed. The guns taken were four (12 pouuder Parrotts, marked, “ May 20th, near Richmond,” and are the same captured from the lsth corps at Drury's Bind last May.— Our loss was only half a dozen wounded, noue seriously. Gen. Grant rode to the front in the after noon in company with General Hancock, and viewed the position occupied by the enemy. He seemed well pleased with the moruiug’s work. Geu. Foster’s commaud had a lively time with the enemy yesterday at this place. His force brinfe weak fell back to a stronger posi I1UU | nun it in III II* uuiii lilt uiiiiai VI uiu _ia corps, lie lost forty or fifty wounded during the day. An attack ou lVarreu’s front was expected yesterday, but was not made. Ticket and ar tillery filing was indulged in to the usual ex tent. and was sharper than usual in Trout of the 18'.h corps. From Gen. Hhr rntan*# Army. Washington. July 29. The latest official dispatches from General Sherman’s army state that lie is steadily draw ing his Hues closer around Atlanta. lie has as yet received no tidings of the cavalry force sent out to cut the Maeou and Columbus rail road, which is the only means of escape for the rebel army from Atlanta. New York, July 29. The Tribune’s Washington dispatch of the 28th, says dispatches received this evening from Gen. Sherman’s army, state that there has been no material change. Atlanta is withiu grasp of Gen. Sherman, and could be occupied at any moment, but tbe capture or destruction of the rebel army is what he is contending for. The rebel loss since our army crossed tbe Challahoochie, is estiuiated at 18,000. Gen. Stoneman is soon expected back from his raid. Washington, July 29. A dispatch received here states that Hood made efforts to renew the assault upon Gen. Shermau’s Hues since the battle of Friday; they were, however, feeble efforts, which were easily and promptly repelled, with a lots to i Sherman of only about 100 men. Various Items. Baltimore, July 29. There is no late authentic news from the Upper Potomac. There is one thing certain, that the rebels have not crossed the Potomac, but had. at last advices, disappeared from the line of the river. Our forces are understood to be vigorously pushing the rebels south of the Potomac. New York, July 29. Gen. Averill is on duty at Hagerstowu. St. Louis, July 29. Gen.

She was bark rigged, painted black, and burned soft coal. She steered for tbe Republic, but tbe latter lost sight of erh at six o’cloc* in the eveuing.” StrageHe Vosition of the Army above Hev~ mnda Hundreds. New York, July 29. a be Post's Washington dispatch says Gen. Grant has secured a very important and stra getie position above Bermuda Hundreds, gain ing command of a uew base of supplies, only ten miles from Richmond, as the result of i Wednesday engagement. rojBK. j Portland Daily Press. _ - — Froth Harprr'tt Form Orrnjintion uj Mttr tinsbnry by thr Fntrrat Troops. Bai.timokk, July 21). The American’s special dispatch, dated Harper's Kerry, says: Harper’s Kerry is once more the scene of active military operations. The military au thorities have pushed forward their move ments with unusual vigor, sagacity and se crecy. If the re I It I force lingers anywhere near Winchester a battle is among the proba bilities within the next few days. If fought at all it will bo fought under circumstances which I believe will give it success. There is nothing important from up river. The rebels withdrew their pickets from oppo site Williamsport on Wednesday night, and yesterday Geu. Kelly occupied Martinsburg. Telegraphic communication with that placets not re-established, nor lias auy train yet ven tured up, as the condition of the road and bridge at Opequon Creek is not kwsrwn. The bridge over Bush Creek, beyond Martinsburg, it is reported, lias been destroyed. A train crossed the bridge at Harper's Ferry . to-day for the first time since the last rebel I occupation. Harper’s Ferry has been burnt over again, this being the fourth or fifth time since the war began. Xone of the private buildings of the town have been injured.

Fort Sumter was undergoing another des tructive bombardment from our batteries, and serious damage Las resulted to some of the strongest portions of the tort. The fire on 1 Charleston was kept tip. The work of erecting residences for the reb el prisoners on Morns island progresses, though the rebels annoy the workmen to the extent of their ability by shelling the build iugs. Gen. Foster’s late expedition created a great scare in Savannah. The rams were moved down to the obstructions on the river, and Gen. Johnston sent a brigrde of Georgia troops to Savannah, which was diverted at Augusta to Johns Island, where they partici pated in the light of the 'Jib. from Mrmphis. Memphis, July 20. Apparently authentic reports front Helena say that an expedition consisting of a regi ment, u portion of the loth Illinois cavalry and a section of a battery left- that place on Monday morning, going in the direction of White river. When near Nelson, eighteen miles out, they encountered a formidable rebel force, and after a short fight were obligetl to retire with a loss of twelve killed and four teen wounded The rebels pursued to within nine miles of Helena, where our troops made a stand, and a sharp light was going on when our informant left. The remainder of the loth cavalry and other reinforcements were rapid | ly lieing sent forward from Helena. Gen. Washburn has issued an order that all persous of West Tennessee and Mississippi having cotton will be permitted to bring it to Memphis and store it with the Government Quartermaster, liable to such disposition as may hereafter be made of it, the Quartermas ter giving bis receipt therefor.

Regulations have been prepared by the Treasury Department for warehousing distill ed spirits, coal oil, naptha and manufactured tobacco, under thu recent internal revenue law. T wo new classes of warehouses are cre ated, to be exclusively used for this purpose, under the direction of the officers of the in ternal revenue. The regulations adopted are in most respect* similar to those which gov ern the establishment and administration ot custom warehouses. A number of Indian treaties having for tbefr object the removal and iocatiou of vari ous western tribes, were not acted upon by the Senate at the last session ot Congress, it being deemed inexpedient dpring the present unsettled conditiau of tha country to carry out their provisions.

To the Editors qf the /loston Daily Advertiser : Gentlemen— Haring seen an article copied into pome of our Boston papers from a New York journal, to the effect that there had been some disagreement between the contractors of the new light draft monitors and the Navy De partment, I deem it a duty to all concerned to state the facts for the information of the pub lic. 1 attended all the meetings of the contractors recently held in New York, aud can say that the utmost harmony prevailed. We were fairly met by the officers appointed by the government, on all questions. In relation to the payments for back work, and future improvements, there was no disposition manifested to deprive us of a sin gle dollar; on the contrary, we have reason to believe that all our payments will be promptly approved, as those already earned according to the terms of the contract have been. In relation to the monitors, the Department has delegated ( apt. Ericsson to make such im provements in them as will render them availa ble for coast and harbor defence, and when we consider their light draft, fwr these purposes, they will be very efficient against any foreign force. It is well known that all the foreign iron-clods are very deep and would not therefore approach our monitors, which could be moored in shallow water, or kept under steam as cir cumstances might require. The superiorly of their artillery has been tested in the contest be tween the “Kcarsarge” and the “Alabama.” As they are in various stages of advancement, some of them not nearly completed, theexpensc of the contemplated improvements will not be so great as the public has been led to suppose, (.'apt. Ericsson, who with others has the matter in charge, is well known to the scientific World, and does not therefore require my endorsement; but this much I may say, that his construction of the first monitor saved the nation from a great humiliation. I have examined the “Dic tator" and “Puritan'* which he has designed and sujKM in^ndcd, and consider that in mate rial, workmanship and invulnerability they ex cel anything which 1 have seen iu England or i: ranee. 1 am well aware that the public has been quit* restless in relatiou to the movements of the Navy Debartment. on-account of the depreda tions of the “ Alabama, ** “ Florida, " and “ Georgia; ” but if the facts were generally known they would show that the power of these vessels has teen greatly exaggerated. In aletter to Senator Grimes, which you published some time since, l boldly asserted that the “Alabama** was inferior in speed and fighting qualities to our sloops of war, the tiuth of which was clearly demonstrated in the recent glorious naval com bat. The difficulty has not been a want of vessels of the right class to destroy these British rovers, but to obtain sight of them. It is my deliberate opinion that almost any of our sloops could overhaul the ' Florida” in a twelve hours* run, and bring her to action. The accounts of her great spied, from the sue of the vessel, aud her well known motive power, arc entirely iucorrect. I do not believe she can l»e driven more than twelve knots an hour under steam alone for more than two or three hours at a time. If the public will only exercise a little patience, they will find that the Navy Department has not neg lected its duty iu this hour of our national strug gle, aud that in the designs of even the light draft monitors it has acted with more skill than many have believed. These vessels w ere a bold experiment, an innovation upon all previous notions of iron-clads, and could not l>e expected to be wholly perfect at first, but I am confident that without changes from the first design, they would be most valuable fur home defence. To make them available for action in Southern wa ters, in all weather, the proposed improvement is necessary. In addition I would earnestly recommend the construction of a number of sea-going wooded ships, heavily iron-clad, with high speed, from 24 to36 guns—and thus secure the respect of all the other nations of the world and the best guar antee of impartial neutrality.
