In humble recognition of our dependence upon Almighty God, who h s so graciously remembered us In the abundance of His loving kindness and tender mercies, I do, with tbe ml vice of the Executive Coun cil, appoint Thursday, the Seventeenth day of April Next, as a day of public Fasting, Humilia tion and Prayer, and recommend its appropriate ob servance by all the people of the State. Consecrat ing the day to prayer and supplication, that we may be strengthened iu all upright purposes and every noble eijiteavor, and mindful of those whom misfor tune and sorrow have made deserving our kindly sympathies, let us not forget those acts of charity and good will which give to life its highest joy, and liil the thoughts in holy communication with the Great Giver of all good. “Is not this the Fast that I have chosen? to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo tbe heavy burdens, and 10 let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Js it not to deal thy broad to the hun gry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out, to thy house?” <.iven at tbe Council Chamber, in Augusta, this twenty-fifth day of March, in the year of our Loid, one thousand eight hundred and seventy threo, and of the Independence of the United States of America the uinety-seventh. SIDNEY PERHAM. By the Governor. George G. Stacy, Secretary of State. The Loss of the Atlantic. The appalling disaster on the coast of Nova Scotia sinks into comparative insignificance the horrors and loss ct life that have attended the history of steam navigation. In a single moment a magnificent ship freighted with over a thousand human beings, who are Sleeping securely, becomes a vast charnel house and the greater part of its human freight, after a pang of terrible agony, are transferred to that sleep that knows no wak ing. The heart-rending scenes, the intense suffering in the pitiless storm and freezing cold, the Bcores ot hopeless battles for life, the brief but unutt 'rable anguish of scores that only awoke to find the most teirib.e forms of death staring them in the face, may in an in definite manner be comprehended by the most unimaginative: but human language can never depict in their terrible reality the tragic scenes about this ill-fated ship, in that dark and stormy night on that rugged coast. Doubtless the f-illest investigation will he made into the causes of the terrible calamity and possibly some mat ters may be brought to light that may relieve Captain Williams of the blame that apparently rests upon him. But by his own statement as given by the press despatches, he shows a lack of prudence that cannot be accounted for by any natural course of reasoning. The ship, as the commander knew, was on a coast always regarded as dan gerous, in a dark night, witli a high wind and blinding storm. Under these circumstances, one can hardiy understand how an experi enced ship master would allow the usual speed of his ship to he continued, not even fully knowing at wliat rate she was running and to retire to his state room. It is said that the lights in t-iat locality are insufficient and that one may be mistaken for another; but the fact that the ship struck the roc'.: bound shore far to the westward of both of these lights goes further to prove that Captain Williams was criminally careless. It would seem that an officer in the possession of all his faculties, with a thousand human beings consigned to to his care, and property worth not less than » million dollars,would have careiully worked his way at slow speed into the harbor or gleamed- slowly' land until daylight and improved weather sbouia rendered hisenlrance to the port less hazardous. Pos_ sibiy fuller testimony will give a different view of the case but from the published state ment of tho commander, the only inferenei is that,the calamity is principally due to hii carelessness. It has already been a matter of discussioi whether or not the models which thi White Star and other lines of oceau steamer have adopted for their vessels, makinj speed the chief object, are safe. Experience! ship-builders and owners on both sides of thi wa er have criticised 'he models as being i violent departure from the old-fashionei; standard of length- healing to breadth o beam, which is a proportion of six to one, anc have declared that such a policy would leac to disaster. As the length of the Atlantic is about eleven times her breadth, this importanl question will again come up and be broughi to more general notice under spur of this ter rible disaster. There is, however, a genera feiiing that some of these lines have sacrificed too frequently, security to dispatch. It is statei that this same company allowed the Adriati to go to sea with a broken propeller, in ordc to secure the contract to carry the Unite States mails, and that its escape from disaste on that occasion was only luck. M reover theie is too good reason to he lieve that the Atlantic had on board a suppl; of coal inadequate to the necessity that sucl a voyage might and does frequently demand a culpable neglect from any point of view. In conclusion, it must be admitted tha there is every indication that this steamshi was managed, if not recklessly, with the sin idea of speed. The model of the shij the light supply orcoat, the rashn““* th commander in attempting make the port all iudicate the* **,e cardinal end sought wa t0 good time.” Mr. Curtis’ Resignation. The resignation of George William Curtis from the Civil Service Board is a matter - general comment, especially among *e friends of the reform to which Mr. Curtis'as maintained so cliivalric a devotion a*1 of which he has been so effective a chc'P1011" The best efforts of his silver tongue ar>d his elegant and powerful pen have beer given to the furtherance of this system. Inspired by his interest in the subject, le threw the weight of his distinguished character, v:gor ous intellect and high literary culture into the Presidential contest of last year, and no man in all the nati w was more potential on the right side than Mr. Curtis. He presented the most striking example possible of a gen tleman and scholar in politics, and elevated the tone of the contest by his presence and action in it. ne imbued the cultivated classes, who were somewhat inclined to neg lect political action, with his own enthusi asm, and inspired the feeling that an interest in public affairs was a matter of duty to every citizen, From tj,e [jme 0f jestablishment ft) 'S('3CtiT1 an act've and laborious member L „Llim”i9ai0n t0 Prepare a code of rules duties 7 thattSia‘e CiVi‘ SerViCe- The charged, and the ^1“,”n.h,ave been dis forced so far as pracfuTeT» *7™ on his own motion, in )h e PrCsi(,en,> gressional action on the subject6"06 °* C°R' Some of the more unscrupuious . position journals are endeavoring to T® °F* litical capital out of the tact of° then's6 P° tion, by alleging that Mr. Curtis retire’ in despair and disgust at some of the preg* dential appointments in violation of the Civil Service rules. T:.is assumption is entirely gratuitous as he himself states nothing of the kind, and the practical completion of the task assigned him aff >rds ample reason for his action, in the absence of any feeling of dissa'isfaction on his part. Nor is there any cause for dissatisfaction. When we consider the impediments,it is real ly wonderful that the system is made as ef fective as it is. For nearly half a century the iramen le machinery of the public service has been run in accordance with the one idea of mere political reward for usefulness. This principle of management was never seriously questioned before General Grant became President. He early became convinced that a change of system was desirable and it was by his influence that the Civil Service Board came into existence. Since that he has steadily adhered to the general policy in his usual wise and practical way. In the face of a hostile Congressional majority it would have been indiscreet and would have jeopard ed everything to have instituted an immediate and radical elimination of all political consid erations front all appointments. President Grant was one of the earliest advocates of a Civil Service independent ot political consid erations in its lower grades, and he is nat the kind of man to abandon any of his well gronnded convictions. If there be any one quality in him more conspicuous than all others it is pertinacity, and no fears need be entertained of his desertion in this case. We think the judicious and thoughtful friends o. a Civil Service Reform are highly gratified by the cautious, practical and sagacious manner in which he encounters the difficult problem. Ghosts, we imagine, are not the most cheerful and desirable of companions.— Our personal experience in this line has been exclusively confined to that political phantom called the Democratic party, but a Georgia town is troubled with an unearthly visitant who drops red hot nails upon the heads of people or where others so unfortunate as not to have the usual protection for their feet will be sure to step on them. We are inclined to protest against this species of ghostly attention, both on account of the dis agreeablencss o) red hot nails on the ground or in the air, and the residence that hot nails in ghostly bands suggests. Op late the local government of Nova Scotia has been giving greater attention to its public educational matters than formerly, as is shown by the fact that in five years the sum voted by the assembly for public instruc tion has incaeased from $90,000 to 117,000. A bill has just been introduced making rad ical changes and improvements. Among its provisions is one providing that the public school fund shall be divided among the coun ties “according to the grand total number of days’ attendance made by all the pupils throughout the Province.” Bbotheb Morhill, of the Home Journal is a good fellow and wouldn’t swindle a wo man or anybody else by selling an article pur porting, to their apprehension at least, to he a thing which it is not. Unquestionably there arc many honorable men in the accident insurance business, but this is no reason for modifying our strictures upon the other class, who are also in the business, and who are guilty of swindling women by false pretenses out of twenty five cents each on the cars. If Bro. Morrill wants an instance, we refer him to tllfi CaSP O.if.Pfl hu Afns Painnh/ill aa r»nminor under her own observation. The Philadelphia Press says that .Senator Scott has not drawn his back-pay. So far so good. Let full credit he given for this. But quite a large number have not drawn trom whom there is no assurance that they will not take it when the popular feeling is lulled. The way to do the business is to clinch the refusal by puttiug the amount where they cannot get at it hereafter. The names of Congressmen Van Trump, of Ohio, and Wil lard, of Vermont, are added to the small but growing list of decliners. IIon Joseph Powell died at Greenville, Tennssee, lately, after an eventful life, and one act in it entitles him to an immortality of fame. He served in the South Carolina Leg islature, and was the only man who voted ‘•No" at a public meeting that passed the nullification resolutions. A gold-headed cane was presented to him inscribed “The Immor tal No.” During the Rebellion he served in Burnside's army, and was imprisoned at Richmond. In the Dominion Parliament Wednesday the opposition moved a committee of enquiry iuto the affairs ot the Canada Pacific Rail road organization. After a debate, the As sembly divided and the resolution was lost there being a majority of thirty-one against it. This is claimed by Sir John Macdonald's friends as a very important victory for the nwnistry and a virtual vote of confidence. Ttm. Hew York Commercial says that the i managers of the Boston and Albany Rail road are a sapient set. Because their em l ployes will steal cigars when they are shipped ! over that road, they have resolved to charge i four times as much for carrying cigars a9 ; they do for other freight. The idea of thrust 1 ing the responsibility upon the shippers is > quite original. t — - ‘ Fobnet’s Press whiah was so bitier ■ againt Gov. Hartranft last fall, is now com mending him for vetoing several bills which declares to be of an unworthy character. The Wreck of the Atlantic •lx THRILLING EXPERIENCES AND cn>ENTS I _ j The following additional see*' t'le night of the loss of the Atlantic arc ivcn by special dispatches: r Patrick Leahy, a youn, ^'pbinan bailing 1 from Waterford, was on * . •* ° dock, a. m., and then everything fjL"®'118’ "n.a? u?na*: He went iuto the forwa ®*eeraSe ai>d bad not been there but a few sr™ „W,,en nth® ®rash . came. With his chu-1°“®"Ogan he instant ly attempted to gain'® cre vi'n,a r moment the passac'1,^® bad become block ed Such was the’art,ins nature of the shock ‘ tlmtitbtl arouL^r^r8 °at °V^ir ' berths and tbey^j®®, ^®1^ passages before thf»v know or f? thought of what was the l matter. WhJ^Sh£ «*c,,ed tbe de(*tbe ! 1 drowned. When the water commen ce! to come into the steerage the passengers made for the hurricane deck. The captain shouted for any men who had life belts or buovs to rush into the sea or mount the rigging; as those were the on ly chances for life. Leahy and his chum immediately' ascended the rigging after much trouble, and from thence had a good view of what was gcingon.“ Then,” said be, “I saw the first and an awful sight.” It was just gleaming day. A large mass of something drifted past the ship ou top of a wave, and then was lost to view ©n the trough of the sea. As it passed by a moan—it must have been a shriek, hut the tempest lulled the sound—seemed to surge up from the mass, which extended over fifty yards of water. “What is that,” asked Leahy of one next him. “Sea lions, said the man addressed, probably a foreigners who did not know that we had none such on our shores. “My God,” said another, “its the women”; and so it was. The 6ea swept them out of the steerage, and with their children to the number of two or three hun dred they drifted thus to eternity. Leahy was in the lagging seven hours moving npand down to keep hi blood in circulation. He saw men on both sides of him fall from exhaustion, mostly able-bodied Germans. The only chance of escape n'as by means of a rope to the shore, which Mr. Brady, the third officer, swam ashore with. Nearly half those who ran the risk of crossing ou this lost their lives. One man had just secured a flour barrel on deck when he was washed overboard, but not before be had obtained a hold on either end, the bottom being out. The fore; of the waves was such, however, that the barrsl was torn from the man’s grasp, and he disappeared while bis quondam support floated away on the top of a bugh billow A little fellow, the only child saved from the wreck, rushed upon deck with the stream of passeugers, when the first alarm was given.— His parents and other members of his family were still below a d evidently perished wheu the ship filled and fell over on her side. Hust led about among that struggling mass of ex cited humanity, the piteous screams of the poor little fellow went to the hardest heart.— He leaped upon tho back of one of the men. in tile hniipu (,foo<iin» v: —.-1r —-, the first engiueer in particular, who remained ou the wreck for hours, assisting the passengers to reach the rock. The lady caom passeugers came on deck iu the excitement, and were standing near the wheel-house. They hesitati d a moment, as if panic stricken and returned in to the companion-way, as if looking for some thing. Presently they came out am endeavor ed to reach the forward part of the ship, where the passengers were sent ashore on the lines. At this moment a huge wave, swept over the ship's quarter, the men clinging to the rigging heard two heart-rending shrieks,and when they looked again the women had disappeared. These are only a fe v of the incidents of that terrible wreck. Young men as well as old be camenalXed, and as they clung to the rig ging and to the sides of the vessel they seemed bereft of all reason. When spoken to by the others to make some effort to reach the boat and save themselves, they would roll their eyes in their bead, stare vacantly at the speakers and ask them in a whining tone, “What boat?” Many again who were aroused out of their berths had scarcely time to put their clothes ou and rush on deck to perish. One cabin passenger, a young man, came up with only a vest on. He clung to the ship’s side as long as he was able, and finally rolled off into the sea, frozen to death. Maine Industrial School for Girls. The undersigned, trustees of the Maine In dustrial Schools for girls, hereby earnestly ap peal to the generos:ty and philanthropy of the people of the State,of all classes and conditions, to the rich and poor alike, for aid to this im. portant movement. Our call is to mothers and fathers blessed with virtuous and obedient children; to those who have suffered by the waywardness of some beloved daughter; and to all kind hearted men and women, who would gladly Bee reclaimed from evil, or restrained from sinking into lower depths of vice,the neglected, exposed and erring girls in our midst. For six years has this subject been agitated in the State, and presented to the considera tion of several legislatures, and during that time the objects, plans and practical workings of such an institution, have become familiar to the public mind. The project is now so near consummation that by a promptand liberal re sponse to this appeal, the school can he in act ive operation by the first of July next. By the terms of the Kesolve of the Legisla ture granting State aid of 85,000, the sum of twenty thousand dollars must first be secured from other sources, Of this amount ten thou sand dollars at least is contributed by two gen erous ladies in Halloweli. For the balance, the trustees confidently look to the citizens of Maine, in every city and village, as equally con cerned and equally to be benefitted. Let them send their contributions, whether large or small, freely and at once, to either of the under signed, and the receipt of the same will be duly acknowledged. Benj.

All papers favorably disposed will - /vtnfop fap/tp Iih inaorfinrr tlio oKutra Annie Louise Cary.—The New York World ion tains the following complimentary notice of Hiss Cary’s appearance at the concert of the Brooklyn Philharmonic Society: Miss Cary was ad in Table both for her selec ;ions and her sieging of them. The vocal por ;ions of Philharmonic concerts are commonly juite useless for the purposes of musical in struction. which such concerts arc supposed to >e iu part instituted to promote. For they con sist in selections from operas which are iu the repertory of every opera compauv, aud which ire to be heaid every season. Selections from* unsuccessful operas like “L’ltaliua in Algeri” md from obsolete operas like “Orfeo,” are much more suitable for this purpose. The “Che faro seuza Euridice” as it was sung by Miss Cary last evening did the same service for Gluck's vocal music which was done for his in strumental music by the “Iphigenie” overture, produced early in the winter by the Brookbjn Philharmonic and afterwards by Mr. Thomas. To common concert-goers it was the revelation of a new master rather than the revival of an old. It vindicates Mr. Chorley’s saying of Gluck that “his recitative stands alone,” and it vindicates also the meledic invention which was denied to him in his day as it is denied to his successor in musical dramaturgy in our own. Miss Cary sang it perfectly. Her noble voice a’d styfe are alike suited to the severe and solemn music.

Trade Prospects.—If there is any reliance to be placed upon the opinions of importers, we nay look for greater activity in trade later in he season. Various causes have conspired to lostpone trade, chief among which is the un favorable weather and the stringency of the nonnn " fPl.A _£ XT_XT V . a Boston officials show that, during the past week, importations at those ports reached the sum of $16,000,000, the largest amount record ed in any one week in the history of either city. This large importation is partially ac counted for by the numerous arrivals of over due steamers and ships, which had been de tained by the severity of the weather, but the imports are too large in volumo for the re quirements of trade. A dull business season must prove uuprofiitable to importers. President Grant recently appointed Mrs. L. A.

Head the following Wonderful Cures in 171 nine i Dr. Urann, who has made so many wonderful cures in this towu and others, will remain in town but a short t ime louger. He has had good success. The case of Mr. J. B. Kedman, Attorney at Law in this town, is truly a wonderful one, when Dr. Urann was called to see him a week ago F. iday, he was not able to turn himself in bod; he Is now able to walk the street and is daily gaining strength.—[Ellsworth American. The above statement, so far as I am concerned, is but the simple truth, and I cheerfully endorse it as an act of justice to Dr. Urann, and earnestly recom mend all person-* afflicted with Rheumatism, Neu ralgia, or other kindred complaints, whether acute or chronic, to give him a call, being sanguine that he will cure them. JOHN B. REDMAN. Ellsworth, Jan. 7, 1873. This will certify that I was troubled with Sciatic Rheumatism and suffered great paiu, was unable to sleep without taking morphine, could not walk. I was carried to Dr. Urann’s office, at the DeWitt House, and after one treatment was free from pain, and have been able to work ever since. A. W. BAILEY. Auburn, May 7,1869. Lewiston, May 7,1869. This will certify that I had lost the use of my lower limbs and was unable to walk or even stand, had several physicians who pronounced my case iucura ble. He 'ring of Dr. Uraun’s Wonderful Cures, I sent for him. In less than a week wa> able to walk In the streets, and can now walk two miles daily. JAMES F. BRADBURY. Ellsworth, Oct. 8, 1867. To the MAcm\s Republican.—GentsAs Dr. Urann, of Boston, is about visiting your place, and a stranger in these parts, I kn >w very well, like most physicians traveling, he will be looked upon with sus picion, particularly as his cures look miraculous. I had been obliged to walk on crutches for one year, and for nine months wa> not ab e to put my foot to the floor. My spine and arm were also so lame as to nearly disable me. I could not dress or undress my self, or get oft the bed without help. He treated my case last Friday morning, and in less than an hour after I was able to walk home, a distance of nearly half a mile, up hill, without crunches, and have been gaining ever since. J. It.
