Matthias took the place of Judas Iscariot in the Twelve, was numbered with the Seventy Apostles.  This is the correct order and Apostles are not to be ordained High Priests, saith the Lord.
."3 Matthias, also, who was numbered with the apostles in the place of Judas, and the one who was honored by being made a candidate with him, are like-wise said to have been deemed worthy of the same calling with the seventy." Eusebius Chapter XII. D&C 107:38 38 It is the duty of the traveling high council to call upon the Seventy, when they need assistance, to fill the several calls for preaching and administering the gospel, instead of any others. Daniel H. Ludlow, New Testament: The Four Gospels, p.213 "What ordination should a man receive to possess all the keys and powers of the Holy Priesthood that were delivered to the sons of Adam? He should be ordained an Apostle of Jesus Christ. That office puts him in possession of every key, every power, every authority, communication, benefit, blessing, glory, and kingdom that was ever revealed to man. That pertains to the office of an Apostle of Jesus Christ." (Brigham Young, JD 9:87.) "He stated that the Seventies are ordained Apostles and when they go forth into the ministry they are sent with power to build up the Kingdom in all the world and consequently have power to ordain High Priests and also to ordain and organize a High Council." (History of Brigham Young Manuscript, December 14,1845.)
