Principal of the High School.—The School Committee of the city of Springfield Mass., recently offered Mr. A. P. Stone, Prin cipal of the High School in this city,the super intendency of schools in Springfield, at a sal ary of $3000. Mr. Stone, in reply, stated that he was receiving $3300 here and that the addi tional $500 would not make it an object for him to remove; but if they would increase the sal ary to $3300 he would accept. The Springfield School Committee, at an adjourned meeting Friday afternoon, acceded at once to the con dition of Mr. Stoue’s acceptance of the school Buperintendcncy—making tho salary $3500— and elected hi in to the office. The loss of Mr. Stone from our High School will he much regretted here, and we congratu late the people of Springfield upon securing ihe services of an educational man of so eminent qualifications and with a reputation national in extent. The position which he leaves as Principal of our High School is honorable and desirable. Great interest will be felt in the selection of his successor. As he dies not leave until the close of the present sch ol year, abundant time is allowed for care and delibeia tion in filling the place.

The Sail Upon the Winslow Patents. Last Saturday, Judge Clifford delivered before the Circuit Court in this city an elabor ate and exhaustive opinion on the validity of the Winslow patents for preserving green corn and other substances. The delivery occupied an hour an I a half. The history of this case is, in brief, as fol lows: In the year 1840, Isaac Winslow, tvho was then it France, conceived the idea of pre serving sweet green corn by a process that should retain for years its natural flavor an succulent juices. He wrote to a relative resid ing in Westbrook, Me-, requesting him to plant I a certain portion of his land with sweet corn that he might have the article for the purpose of experimenting upon it. His request was complied with, and on his retnrn to this coun try he, for several years thereafter, devoted himself to the task of reducing to practice his conception. As the coru when ripe hardened rapidly, his opportunity for experimenting was necessarily confined each year to the brief period of time when the corn was suitable for his purpose. This at the outset was discourag ing. He first tried the methods already In use, hoping to discover what he sought by improv ing upon them. First, he boiled corn upon the cob aud then packed it in hermetically sealed ▼easel* This failed, as tho cob absorbed the flavor of the corn. Next he ent the corn by the usual method from the cob am boiled tbe corn, tbon packed it as before. This also failed as the juices aud milk contained in tho kernel were suffered to escape by the process of cut ting, and when taken from the can were found t) be unfit for use. He tbe n tried a new plan which consisted in cutting the kernel from the cob by means of a peculiarly constructed knife and packed the corn with its juices and milk in tiic can, and boiled it in hot water. This also failed. The ferment* I gasses expanded within the can by the heat in process of boiling and burst it. It was at this pointin his experiment ing that the conception upon which his letters patent were granted, was revealed to him. He boiled the can up to the time when the expand ed gas would be likely to burst the vessel, when he drew it from the water, punctured it, let out the fermented and expanded gasses, resealed it and continued the boiling until the corn was Bufflei. ntly cooked. Here at last was success. March 7tb, 1851, he applied for letters patent, b it for various reasons they were not granted until May, 13(32. During this interval of nine y ars the inventor died. His heirs, J. W. Jones, et als., engaged in the business of pack ing by the process described, and for which let tar’s patent wore on file at Washington. The great value of this process led other parties throughout the United States, illegally, as claimed by Mr. Jones, to ougage in the same business, using the process discovered by Mr. Winslow. In 18(37 Mr. Jones Jones, and his co-heirs brought this suit against several of the parties so using his prooess, in order to make it a test case for all. The im portance of this ease will then be seen when it is remembered that not only is the dsmand and consumption of preserved corn very large aud largely increasing, but other articles like lob sters, meat, etc., are preserved by the same pro cess by a large number of firms, involving a capital of several millions of dollars and doiag business in various pares of the country. Various defences were set up by the respon dents. First, They averred that Isaac Winslow was not tbe inventor of the art of preserving gnen corn in its natural stale, and to substantiate that allegation introduced extracts from scien tific works, and referred to certain patents granted in England to English inventors at a date considerably earlier than the Winslow in vention. The Judge compared in detail these averments with the specifications contained in Winslows' letter’s patent, and exhibited in this analytic comparison, not only a of proof in favor of Winslow but conceded to him a claim in matters entirely new over the English claims. Second, The defence declared that tho inven tor hid abandoned his invention prior to filing bis application for letters patent. Third. That he had abandoned his patent after tiling his application and before receiving the preliminary rejection from tbe patent of fice. •nnige i iiHorn reviewed in detail witu search ing analysis these several averments of the de feuce aud compared them point by point with the progress of Winslows’ experiments, and his persistent application of claim before the de pattmentat Washington. The weight of opin ion was given on these points in favor oi Wins low. ft was shown that Winslow patiently, and with constant effort endeavored to en lighten the patent office as to the nicety and value of his invention. The court ruled "that mv defendant who sets up that the inventor has abandoned his invention must prove the al legation by the most cogeat and conclusive tes timony, such as the acts aud declarations of the inventor himehlf. In this the defence whol ly failed. Again, when an inventor has finally prosecuted his application to an allowance, the testimony must be clear and conclusive to sup port the allegation to abandonmeut; that only the inventor himself can abandon, and if public useissetup to provo abandonment, such use must be shown to have been with the consent and allowance of the iuventor, anil the court de cided as a matter of fact that if there had been any publ c use of this invention the defence had fully failed to connect it with the knowledge aud couseut of the inventor. W. H. Clifford, Esq., of this city, counsel for the claimants, may well feel proud of his suc cess. Against the opinion of sotno of the ablest pat nt lawyers in the country, he undertook this case in 1868, and although then but 27 years of age and opposed by an array of emi nent counsel for the defence has fought this case step by step up to its present time. The counsel for the defenso propose to take ex ceptions to the rulings of Judge Clifford and carry the case up to the full hanch. Wo under stand that Mr. Jones, under the decision of Saturday, proposes to move at once against alt parties infringing upon his rights granted by his letters patent. A Card. Many branches of busi ness highly honorable in themselves are prejudiced by the dishonest and otherwise improper practices of oertain un worthy parties engaged in them. As the Sew ing Machine business is one of this class I de sire to place the matter in a proper light before the public. An.agent of a first class Sewing Machine Company, on Monday last sold a ma chine to a young iady who works in a factory in this city. A party pretending to represent another machine followed her to the factory, and annoyed h r fur hours in a vain attempt to indnce her to change her purpose. A young man sent by the same party subse quon’l.v followed her into the office of the gen tleman from whom she nad purchased, where he persisted in inflicting his odious presence up on her, refusing for some time to leave though she plainly told him she would have no conversation with him on any subjeet whatever. But this wa3 not enough. He watched her until she left the office, ran after her in the street, caught her by tho arm and forcibly detained her, attempting to coerce her to go witli him to his place of business, and would not desist uutil threatened with arrest and exposure. In behalf of the manufacturers, vendors and agents of all the first class sowing machines [ desire to disclaim any part or lot in such prac tices, and prefer not to be associated in the public mind with those who indulge them. 1(>6 Middle St. A.

Installations Tbe installation services of the Rev. I>r. Hill as pastor of tlie First Parish took place yester ( day afternoon. The church was filhd y an audience composed of people of all .1 enonuna lions. The desk and altar were tastefully dec orated with evergreens and flowers. Upon the altar was a vase of magnificent ealla I,lies, j W|,iie over tbe alcove was a beautiful evergreen ! cros9j round which was entwined a garland of rows. After the voluntary and the anthem a very brief and very appropriate introductory prayer was offer by Rev C. W. Buck of Park street church. Reading of the Scriptures fol lowed by Rev. W. T. Phelan of Preble chapel. After the singing of a hvntn the sermon was delivered by Rev. Dr. Peabody. We give an abstiact below: SEEMOX. Br. Peabody began by saying it was an early New England custom for the minister to preach his own installation sermon, with the view of ‘‘showing his colors” and indicating his posi tion ou questions at issue. In the spirit of this custom he should give views, as far as may be, in sympathy with those of the new pastor on some of the fresh topics of the day. His text was I Tim. VI—20, ‘‘Oppositionsof science falsely so called.” There is no scriptural type repeated oftener than Uzzah, who thought that the ark of the Lord would be overturned because the oxen shook the cart. Good men in our time arc fearful that the results of scientific research may unsettle scriptural truths. This apprehen sion is virtual infidelity, and these fears do more injury to the cause than avowed enmity. True science and divine revelation cannot \v any possibility contradict each other; they- must coincide so far as ttiey cover the same grouud. The hieroglyphics of nature must correspond to the alphabetic writing of revelation. But what are the science and the Christianity we may ex pect to find harmonious? Not. indeed, whatev er any scientist or erratic student of nature may choose to term science; nor ye- whatever any enthusia t or bigot may claim as Christianity.— Science is not by poll eses that may, hut princi ples that do explain the phenomena of uature. The name is inapplicable to deducti'-ns from partial phenomena, or to those incapable of. verification or the mere opinions of scientific men, nowever plausible these may lie. The speaker did not regard the development theories as necessarily hostile to religion. If specific creation implies creative wisdom, mvoh more is it implied in the endowment of primeval atoms with the power of development into organized life. If we believe our race sprang from an ancestry of apes we may believe it destined to the developed into a posterity of angels. But these theories are as vet mere hyphothesis, aud it is to be doubted if they will ever be more.— Now what is this Christianity which must fall it it be in opposition to fully established scien tific truth? It is the ethical leichings of Christ, the reality of his divine mission as Teacher,Ex emplar and Saviour. This religion has been transmitted to as in human language in con nection with biography aud history and inci dental references to opinions of the time. But history aud chronology and opiuions are not rovelatiou. Though for my owu part I have faith in the earlier revelations of which the Hebrew scriptures are the receptacle, all that directly concerns us now as cbrisiians is the genuineness of the divine mission of Christ.— Science and religiou have in common three sources of evidence, testimony, experience or experiment, and intuition. 1st.—Scientific truth rests in great part on transmitted or accumulated testimony. So does the historical portion of Christianity. The speaker here reviewed the question of the au theutict.v of the gospels. He said there were two or three legal principles that apply to all sub jects of human testimony. One of these is the statute of limitations. If Christianity proved itself to the minds of men during its first three centuries when it had to combat pow erful pre-establisned religions, it cannot well he doubted now. Now most of these objections have seen the light during the last thirty years. Mo«t of the ancient arguments against Christ ianity were demurrers. The authenticity the gospels was admitted, but Christ was ac" cased of being a necromancer. In this ag when the existence of necromancy is denied, the admission of autbencity at a time when the facts must have been kuow*' is strong proof. The testimony for Christianity is as v >b 1 as much of that upou which science is based. a.<.— Science and Christianity equally rest in great part on experiment or experience. Chemistry notably does so. Now test Christ ianity hy experience, and you will And that it furnishes the peace, the charity, thecunsola tion which it teaches. 3d. The evidence of intuition is claimed equally for science and Christianity. When facts have beeu collated, experiments m ide aud deductions drawn, the established princi ple becomes to the scientist a necessary truth. He sees not only that it is, but that it must be. So with tli# Christian. He comes to that stage when he can no more doubt his religion I an he can his own existence. We all have een thousands who have this faith. We have thus considered the evidence on which science aud Christianity rest. I t no one then suppose that he does honor to Ci. risti anity by jealousy of science. Let no one imag ine that he reveres science by discrediting Christianity. They are equally divine. Iu closing the speaker expressed bis gratifica tion at being present, and said that, nearly for ty years ago bo received the apostolic charge from the pastor of this church. He then re ferred to one of its members, but recently dead, whom he had hoped to take by the hand. In conclusion he commended their pastor as one who, like the high Priest of an earlier dispen sation, will stand between the Irving and the dead and stay the plague of doubt and unbe lief. Rev. J. H. Morrison then made the prayer of Installation aud Rev. J. T. G. Nichols, with many appropriate remarks gave the right-hand of Fellowship. Rev. W. E. Gibbs offered the concluding prayer, an 1 the pastor pronounced the Benediction, The last Anthem was from the Oratorio of St. Peter. Chestnut Street.—Rev. S. F. Jones, the newly assigned pastor of the Chestnut Str< et M. E. church, entered upon his work yesterday, delivering a powerful doctrinal sermon fr< m the xvi chapter of St. John. He took occasion to combat the idea, which he claimed to be too prevalent, that because a man earnestly be lieves in any religion, that because he has faith in some divine overruling power which lie calls God, and that b cause ho lives a moral aud up right life, that therefore bis salvation is assur ed. Salvation is only through Christ and him crucified. There is but one way to heaven, and He is that way. Only by faith in the Divinity and Godhead of Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit can man be saved. It is useless tj call upon the Father alone. Mr. Jo- es closed by pledging to his flock during his p: s torate here, his best efforts for the cans of Christ. The ssrmon produc d a very favor le impression, and many compliments were ss cd upon it. Police NorE3.—Patrick Gortuley ax . ltn Foley are summoned to appear Ibeforo J dge Morris this morning on a charge of lte in - open shop on the Lord's day. A young colored girl wat arrested yesterday on suspicion of the larceny of a bank book and some other articles from a house on Washing tm street. A boy about sixteen years old was arre (el yesterday ou a chargo of heating his mother. He stands a fair chance of gracing the gallows one of these days. There were five arrests for druukouness yes terday.

MATTERS IN MAINE. MURDER !! Startling Tragedy in Warren. Dr. Raker found Shot in a House—A Slighted Woman Supposed to be Guilty of the Crime—Strange Conduct of tho Accused-Coroner’s Ju*y in Session— t Excilem i;it. WALr^BORO May 18.—A terrible tragedy oc curred! Warren, on the road leading from Warrer I o Thomaston, at the house of War ren M' jk, Friday niglit la9t about 10 o'clock. The ptr* culars are as follows: Dr. P. E. Baker a physician of giod stan ling iu Warren, went to the house of Mink, whose sister formerly acted in the capacity of housekeeper for Dr. Baker while he was practicing in Thomaston. It is supposed that a criminal intimacy existed between them at that time. When Dr. Baker left Thomaston for the West some time after wards, she followed him and made her threats to different parties that if he ever had a differ ent housekeeper, she would bo the death of him. He came to Warren about six months ago and she returned soon after. He has been boarding at the hotel till this spring when he purchased a house and commenced housekeep ing, having a Mrs. Kirk for housekeeper, sinee which time he has received several letters from Miss Mink threatening to burn his house aud kill him if he did not discharge Mrs. Kirk and employ her. He has paid no attention to these letters but has made fun of them, and, as the sad end shows, placed no confidence ib -them. Dr. Baker was called to see a sick child about 9 o’clock Friday eAoning, in the vicinity of the house of Mink. Miss Mink testifies that Dr. Baker came to their house between the hours of nine and ten, she having retired. Hearing a knock at the door she got up and let him in, and he undressed and retired with her. About ten o’clock she came to the house ef Mr. Spear in her night clothes, crying out, “I am shot; I am shot; Dr. Baker shot me.” Upon examin it was found that it was not so. She appeared to be in a state of frenzy and great excitement all through the night. In tbe morning the neighbors f jund Dr. Baker’s gig in the yard of Mink and bis horse in the barn. The door ot the house was locked, which was then broken open, and proceeding into the house they found the unfortunate man lying doad on the cham ber floor. His pauts were ou, bis vest on wrong side out and one stocking partially on. It is s ipposed that after receiving the fatal wound be attempted to dress himself, and in doing so fell backward in the position he was found. The ball passed through his breast into his lungs.

Another Version—Mnspirion that Another Party Committed the Itlurdcr. [Special Despat h to the Press.] Camden, Miy 18—Soma additional reports have been received from the murder case of Dr. Baker of Warren, but up to a late hour Saturday night the Coroner’s jury had not re turned their verdict, and there are strong sus picions that the murderer is some other person than Lucy Mink. She was keeping house for her brother, recently divorced and living alone, who was absent from town. About eleven o’clock Friday night, she, in her night dress, arroused a family living in the next house with the startliug intelligence that she had been shot, and was so frightened apparently that little information could lie gained. The men at once proceeded to her house, but did not search it. and supposing that she had been frightened at nothing, gave her shelter for the night. On Saturday morning Dr. Baker was found on the floor beside her bed shot through the heart, with no pislol anywhere to be found. Dr. Baker had evidently intended to remain some time as his horse and team were in the stable. There are suspicions that some other person may have done the shooting which w >uld, in a measure, excuse the conduct of Miss Mink who exclaim ed that she had been shot. The pistol shot mark showed that it had neon placed close to the body. Others think that she decoyed him to her house iu the absence of her brother, with the intention of killing him in revenge for not marrying her, she having claimed to have had a child by him three years ago. Dr. Baker was always regarded as a skillful physician. Accident*. Frveburq, May 17.—Horace Eaton, son of J. B.
