Discontinuance of High Street. After visiting the proposed location of the Boston and Maine Bailroad on High street yes terday, the committee adjourned to the Council room at 4 p. m. Upon meeting in the Council room Mayor Wescott in the chair, Mr. W. L. Putnam, the counsel for the Boston and Maine road, offered the following propositions: 1st. The Boston & Maine will widen Maple street twenty feet on the west side. 2d. They will dedicate to the public for the use of teams and persons approaching or leav ing the station, one additional space of uniform width extending from Commercial to Y°« street and adjoining Maple street, so that sa spaces and the widening of Maple street, equal the number of superficial feet of High street discontinued, such space b , , subject to such regulations relative to hacks aud teams, not inconsistent with the aws of the State and tlie ordinances of the City, as tu8 railroad may from time to time establish. Also said railroad reserving the right to extend a sidewalk on the western line of said space, and also the necessary sidewalks, not to exceed twelve feet in width without consent of the City Government, Littlefield & Wilson to have until June 1, 1875, to remove their buildings, but the remainder of the street and space to be opened on notice from the City Government. 3d. Said railroad will so construct tlieir cross ing of Park street as to enable the city, when ever they desire, to improve the grade of Park street as prepared in the report of the City En gineer. 4th. Said railroad will pay the city $12,000 to be used in improving Park street, or used elsewhere as the city may desire. 5th. Said railroad will never impede Park street and will never cross the street at grades. After reading his propositions Mr. Putnam read from the City Engineer’s report, showing that if High street is not discontinued no such passenger station can be constructed by the Boston and Maine between High and Maple streets as is contemplated. He, Mr. Putnam, could see no interests that could possibly suffer except the property holders in that vicinity. And he thought after the improvements were finished that were contemplated the property holders would have as good, if not better ad vantages than they now possess in good wide, easy grade streets, at Park and Maple streets. The new station would require space for six tracks to enter it. Mr. Bacon, superintending engineer of the Boston and Maine extension, was then intro duced and made statements corroborating those of Mr. Putnam. John Rand, esq., appeared for the P. S. & P. and Eastern Railroad Companies, claiming that as large properly owners they were deeply in terested in the question. Mr. Rand contended that the public convenience did not demand the discontinuance of High street; it was only de manded by the convenience of the Boston and Maine. At the time that Commercial street was made High street was extended to it to subserve the public convenience; it can only be discontinued for the same reason. High street is oue of the main thoroughfares to the P. S. & P. road, a road which constructed half of Com mercial street and gave it to the city. Tt can be bridged as well as Park street. The Boston & Maine want this portion of High street for its surface ground, for the location of their sta tion. They have bought all the land between High and Maple streets below York. They now ask the city for High street for a station ground, and offer $12,000 for it. York street can be moved up and thus ample room be given for the six tracks without the discontinuance of High street. If the public convenience de mands this discontinuance, why has it not been done before? Isn't there more business over High street than ever before? The $12,000 will not begin to pay for the changes on Park street, changes which the B. & M. are obliged to effect at their own expense in any contingency. Nathan Webb. Esq., next spoke in opposition i to the discontinuance, which he regarded, in view of the future growth of the city, as a great misfortune, for every thoroughfare will be needed. The only justification for laying out a street is the public convenience, and the only justification for its discontinuance is the public convenience. As business increases, this thor oughfare will be more and more in demand. A portion of the public business which is with the B. & M. will be benefitted; but other portions will be incommoded. T. B. Reed, Esq., opposed the petition in be half of a large number of remonstrants. He warned the committee that their action would be in effect, irrevocable, for after the ground has been occupied by the B. & M. it will be well nigh impossible to drive them from it. There are but 4000 feet of available water front for the whole business of the city. The city stretches from Munjoy to Bramhall, but lits transportation facilities are crowded into ti e narrow strip between India and State streets. It is of the utmost importance that all the pres ent thoroughfares from this to the other por tions of the city should be kept open. It is a question of the discontinuance of High street, or os raising its grade three feet. Shall the west end have two thoroughfares like Park street, or shall it strike ont one? Lewis Pierce, Esq.,coincided in the views ad vanced by Messrs. Rand, Webb and Reed. Col. C. B. Merrill favored the petitioners,and thought the value of property on High street would be enhanced by the discontinuance. W. L. Putnam, Esq., arose and explained that the phrase “public convenience,” is to be taken in its widest sense. It does not mean the convenience of a few dwellers on High street merely; it does not mean the convenience of pedestrians and carriage drivers merely; It means the convenience of the business interests of the whole city. There might be circumstan ces in which the discontinuance of a highway, and the giving it away to a railroad, would be a public convenience. New streets, over which no man has need to travel, are laid in unsettled portions of the city,with a view to its future heeds,and it is done for the public convenience. The convenience of a railroad must be distin guished from the convenience of an individual. The remonstrants have confounded the two. Mr. Putnam prrceeded to sustain bis point by further illustrations. SCHOOL AFFAIRS. The regular monthly meeting of the School Committee was holden last evening. In the absence of the Secretary, Clarence Hale, Esq., was cho?en temporary Secretary. The action of the Executive Committee in making up Miss Hovey’s salary on the basis of $1,000 a year, was approved. The report of the Committee on preparing questions for examination for Primary Schools was accepted; permission was granted to Albert M. Langmaid to temporarily tap water pipo of West Grammar School, so thereby to conduct Sebago water into his house at No. 12 Lowell street. A large number of applications for the posi tion of teachers were read by the Chairman and referred to Committee on Examinations. The amount of bills approved including pay roll, was $17,200, the pay-roll amounting to $16,341.67. The following orders were passed: Permis sion be granted to to Wm. L. Fitch to appear before such of the Primary and Grammar Schools as he desires, and invite the scholars to participate in the floral concert to be given un der his direction the coming 4lh of July; that the Executive Committee be empowered to make desirable alterations in stairways of Brackett Street Grammar School for Girls; that the Sec retary furnish the Chairman of the Supervis ors with certified copies of examination papers, that a committee of flve 'be appointed to ob tain a training teacher, salary not to exceed the amount appropriated. The committee are Smith, Burgess, True, Sliailer and Blanchard. That the pay roll of Andrew H. Files |be made up for the full quarter; that the salary of the assistant in the grammar department of the West school, be fixed at $430; that the follow ing standard of marking be adopted at the next examination of candidates for promotion from the primary schools. 1st, marks shall be based upon a standard of form; 2d, an average of 3 in all branches shall be requisite for promo tion to the grammar schools.; 3d, each mistake ill process m arithmetic shall deduct one third of one from the full rank, each mistake in a principle in arithmetic one-half of one from the full rank, but if six of the eight problems are correctly performed, the pupil shall be entitled to 3; 4th, each word incorrectly spelled shall deduct one-third of one from the full rank,, the the whole unmbar of words being twelve. Adjourned. THE BATTLE WON. 940,000 Received. The Executive Committee of the Maine Gen eral Hospital Fair, feel authorized to state that the gross receipts of the Fair will amount to the round snm of $40,000. The accounts are not all adjusted, but enough is known to make sure that the receipts will equal and perhaps overlap this sum. With the aid of future con tributions which are expected and asked for the committee hope to raise the net receipts to $40,000. We trust to hear a response to this.last call from all sections of the State. The com pletion of the hospital is now an assured fact, and it is only a question of time, Retail take hold for one last lift, and put it in running or der as soon as possible. The Executive Com mittee will be in session at No. 3 Elm street, to which place all contributions may be directed. As the amount of the expenditures has not yet been ascertained, the net receipts are of course unknown, but the additional contributions hoped for will undoubtedly raise it to the covet ed sum. _ The Yacht Club.—The Yacht Club started on its annual cruise about eleven o’clock yes. terday morning, presenting a fine appearance. The following yachts started; Kay, Commo dore A. M, Smith; Commodore, yice Commo dore C, JL McLellan; Ethel, ex-Commodore J. 51. Churchill; Capt. Preble; Sparkle, Capt. J. A. Thomas; Spy, Capt, Paul; Whis per, Capt. Thomas; Ella, Capt. Deiaho; Game Cock, Capt. Mars tan; Clarence, Capt. Jones; Magic. Capt Carter. The fleet returns Wed nesday night. Fire and Lui or Life. ONE WOMAN KILLED AND ANOTHER BADLY BURNED. About three o'clock yesterday morning fire was discovered in the stable adjoining tbe dwelling house owned by Charles Brackett, sit uated on Saco street, about one half mile from Saccarappa village. The house was a two story building with ell, and was occupied by the family of Benj. F. Roberts. The family of Mr. Roberts consisted of himself, wife and sev en children, his mother, an old lady of about 70 years of age, and his niece, an accomplished young lady of 18 years, Mr. Roberts was the first to discover the fire, and he at once aroused the family. The entire family, with the ex ception of the old lady and niece who slept to gether in the back attic, succeeded in making their escape in safety from the house, though they were unable to save any clothing but what they had on. Mrs. Roberts was severtly in jured in the face and hand by coming in con tact, in the excitement of the moment, with a heavy piace of furniture. The fire had made such headway when dis covered that it was impossible to check it and the entire buildings were speedily reduced to ashes. The furniture, hay, farming tools and a cow were burnt. The saddest part of the story remains to be told. The old lady men tioned was sleeping in the back attic, together with Miss Mary Boody, the niece. They were awakened by the smoke and endeavored to es cape by the back stairs, the only way down,but the flames bad possession of them, and so they dashed for the window, out of which in her crazed excitement the oid lady threw herself headlong, a distance of 24 feet, striking upon her head and producing almost instant death. The niece with more caution let herself down as far as possible and then dropped without serious injury. But both were severely burned, Miss Boody on the hands, arms, face and body. While this event was occurring the neighbors had arrived at the burning building and both Miss Boody and the body of the old lady were carried into a neighbor’s house and a physician summoned to attend Miss Boody. She is a teacher in one of the public schools and is said to be nuiversally beloved by all who know her. A pleasing iucident was developed yseterday afternoon. A little daughter of Dr. Sylvester, and one of the pupils of Miss Boody, had her sympathies so much aroused by the terrible accident, that she drew up a subscription paper and started off in the village to raise funds for her loved teacher. Mrs. Roberts, the old lady, is said to have been a lady of intellect and was greatly es teemed by all who knew her in the village. This sad event has cast a gloom over the entire village. Miss Boody is attended by Dr. J. M. Stewart. The property of Mr. Roberts was uninsured. The buildings were insured for 82000. Coroner Gould went out with a view of holding an in quest over the remains, but after learning all tbe circumstances deemed it unnecessary— Sheriff Pennell was also on the ground, aud from all tbe circumstances revealed concluded to appoint an investigating committee consist ing of J. S. Gould,F. M. Ray and H. P. Murcb. The fact that no fire had been used by the family in the portion of the buildingwhere the fire was discovered, and that one of the neigh bors heard some one go by on a run just before the fire broke out, gave a suspicious cast to the whole affair, and the sheriff deemed it best to investigate all the attending circumstances. A brief preliminary examination was enter ed into yesterday and the jury adjourned to 9 o’clock a. m. Wednesday. At tbe request of Sheriff Pennell we withhold the result of yes terday’s investigation. A Hard Customer.—Last evening about six o’clock, officer Rice was called upon to quell a disturbance in Hugh Kelley’s house on the corner of Fore and India streets. He found Kelley’s face streaming with blood, and the no torious Tom Ross making himselFgenevally dis agreeable. Mr. Rice took Ross out of the house, when the rascal began making a great disturbance. The officer then arrested him, though he made a powerful resistance aided by a crowd of a hundred or more gathered around. Rice is a man who never lets go his hold, and by the free use of his billy, he took Ross out of the crowd, and with officer Totten brought him to the station. Great credit is due to Mr. Rice for his energy and promptness. It should also be said that Nelse Leighton who was present, took hold like a good law-ahiding citizen, and assisted the officers. Portland Water Companv.—In the Uni ted States District Court before Judge Fox, yesterday,in the case of J.B.Brown and others, petitioners for adjudication of bankruptcy against the Portland Water Company, the court dismissed the petition with costs. The case will be taken to the United States Circuit Court on writ of error. Our evening contempo ry understands that Judge Fox differs with Jndge Blatchford as to the class of persons lia ble to involuntary bankruptcy, on the ground of suspension of commercial paper. Judge Fox holds that the only persons to whom the “com mercial paper” clause pertains, are brokers, merchants, traders, manufacturers and miners. Judge Blatchford holds that clause applies to any one who suspends payment of “commercial paper” for fourteen days. Funeral Services.—The funeral services of the late Edward Oxnard took place from his late residence on Danforth street yesterday af ternoon,and were attended by a large concourse of citizens. Rev. Mr. Fenn and Rev. Dr. Cliickering, former pastor of High street church, officiated. Mr. Oxnard was one of the original members of High street church, and sat under Dr. Chickeri ng’s ministrations until State street church was formed. MISCELLANEOUS NOTICES.

A REMARKABLE CASE. Swedish and Norwegian Emi grants Seize a Schooner. Arrest of the Ringleaders. Probable Charge ol Piracy. [Special Dispatch to the Press.] Quebec, June 23.—A remarkable case,which may end in a charge of piracy against a number of Swedish and Norwegian emigrants, was in vestigated here to-day; and a large number of the ringleaders lodged in Quebec jail. It ap pears that a large number of emigrants from Sweden and Norway were brought to Canada by Mr. Molson, who has large iron works on the lower St. Lawrence river at a place called Moissie, and they were engaged before they left home for a period of three years. When they arrived out in the spring they went to work, but a dispute arose as to the payment of wages, they insisting that they should be paid in gold and their employer giving them orders only to obtain goods in stores kept by himself. This they refused to remain satisfied with, and left their work, but as they had no means of getting away from the pie they were in a bad position, no vessels trading there regularly except those owned by Mr. Molson. In their extremity they went down to the river in a body and took possession of a small schooner.— In this vessel they set sail for Quebec and ar rived yesterday all safe, there being men, wo men and children on board to the number of 200. When they landed at Point Hove wharf the police were waiting for them, as informa tion of their acts hac been telegraphed to this point. The men mostly wore sheath knives in their belts, and looked very formidable, but on the police showing that they had authority to ar rest them, they surrendered peaceably. Twen ty-eight of them, who were said to be leaders in the movement, were taken into custody and lodged in Quebec jail to await the evidence of Mr. Malson against them, and the charge of stealing the vessel which the owner of the schooner means to bring against them. The case is creating great interest among all con nected with emigration. J. G. MATTERS IN MAINE. (Special to the Press.) The Portland Commandery at St* John. St. John, Jnne 23.—There never is but one thing to report when the Portland Command ery goes on an excursion, and that is a continu al round of pleasure; and to say that this has in any sense been an exception, would be unan ticipated. Our Bangor friends have added much to the zest of the trip, which has been in all respects, all that we had desired. The weather has been beautiful. Kothinghas oc curred to mar our pleasure, and we are upon the top wave of success. Upon our arrival there, we were met by at Carlton by a commit tee from the two encampments here,“St. John” and “Union de Molay,” and escorted to our comfortable quarters at the “Victoria.” After breakfast,the morning was passed in a pleasant manner, groups from the four bodies going about the city and to church at their will. Att about noon, we were informed of the sorrowful event that had just occured in the hotel—the death of that well known, genial musician, Mr. Charles ICoppitz of the Globe Theatre, Boston, who with his orchestra had just closed a very successful season of opera at the Academy of Music. It had been our intention, at the invi tation of Mayor Reed, to have our bands united and give the citizens a short sacred concert in the Queen’s Park, but the unexpected death of Mr. ICoppitz changed the design,and the after noon was passed in a quiet manner. In the evening we joined in the procession of Masons and escorted the remains to the 9 o’clock train, on their way to Boston. < To-day at 10 o’clock, we were met at the Vic toria, and in an informal manner taken about the city to points of interest. The suspension bridge, Insane Asylum, City Hospital, etc. We then returned to Masonic Hall, and there fra. ternized for an hour or so with our friends of St. John. In the evening we were met at the Victoria by the St. Johns Knights, accompa nied.by the splendid baud of the 62d Regiment, and escorted to Lyceum. Prominent among the St. John Knights is the well known Capt. Chisholm, os the “International line steamers” who is perfectly at home'as host, and who is a host in himself. We leave here to-morrow a 10 a. m. for home, via the St. Johns river tot Fredericton, and thence to Bangor. H. [Special to Press.] Man found Drowned—Suspicious Circum stances—Coroner’s Inquest Summoned. Springvale, June 23.—Saturday, the body of a man named Martin L. Gerrish, was discov ered in the Mousam river, near this village. He was last seen Wednesday evening, at about ten o’clock. It is also reported that loud outcries were heard in that vicinity,soon after, the same night. The body, when found, disclosed that the skull had been fractured, and there was no water in the stomach, so that there is suspicion of foul play; and a certain desperate character, with whom he was recently seen, is suspected. Gerrish was a man of intemperate habits, about 40 years of age, and leaves a family. A coroner’s jury was summoned, and after taking a view of the body, and a little unim portant testimony, partly corroborating the above, adjourned until Saturday,at ten o’clock. For the Information of our Neighbor. Bangob, Me., June 22 —Hon. John A. Pe ters of Maine, returned his back salary April 24th, and holds a receipt of the Secretary of the Treasury dated April 26th. Tho reports re cently circulated, are grossly incorrect, Mr. Peters was the first of the Maine delegation to return the money. Accident to a Maine Vessel. New York, June 23.—The schooner Chal lenge, from Gardiner, Me., for New York, with lumber, was run into by an unknown schooner in Hell Gate, carrying away her head gear, and staving a hole in her port side, down to the water’s edge. The Thorndike Murder. [To tbo Associated Press.] Verdict of the Coroner’s Jury—The Broth er Charged with the Crime—New Evi dence Discovered. Belfast, June 23.—The coroner’s jury in the Thorndike tragedy completed the inquest this afternoon. The verdict finds that the fa ther and mother came to their deaths in conse quence of blows inflicted upon their heads and faces with an axe, fracturing their skulls; and that the infant was either killed in like man ner, or by inhaling smoke, heat and fire, after the Wows were given. The murders were com mitted between 12 and 3 o’clock. That the fire was kindled in many places, in and upon the bed, and the crib in which the little boy was sleeping, and that the door leading to the room was closed. The jury further say that the blows were inflicted by John True Gordon, with mal ice aforethought, and that the fire was kindled, and the door shut by him for the purpose of causing the bodies of the victims to be consum ed and destroyed. A new motive to the murder, that of revenge was disclosed in the evidence of a young lady iu the vicinity, to whom John Gordon had been paying attention.
