Navigation of Western Rivera Obstacles that have bsssi Onienat an tbe Columbia saS Saake Rivera — Preparation* for Opening tbe Upper BI tsionri. A writer in the Helena, Montana, Independent gives the following inter esting account of the means used to fa cilitate the navigation of the great riv ers on this side of tin? continent, and the wort now being done on the Upper Missouri : Tho navigation on the Upper Missouri, Upper Columbia, Upper Sfelltrwstone and such rivers was for man* years con sidered impoaaibli, or at least impracti cable. The Upper Missouri was, how ever, found to be navigable for middle sized river steamers to Fort Benton two months in the year, but the navigable season gradually increased, until this last year the river was found navigable from April Ist to Nov. 15th, and even to Dec. Ist. Tlie Yellowstone proved to l>e navig able to Powder Horn and Big Horn rivers six to seven months in the year, and even 10' miles further up during high water. The Upper Colum...

Chief Hdmly.—While on his way | to Pendleton to see two of the Uma- j tillus off, Hotnly, chief of part of these Indians was interviewed l>v the Weston Leader's reporter. "Chief" ! he said, "whither are thou going and where will you he when you get there?" Hotnly smiled and answered: "1 am going to Pendleton and intend to be present at the grand 'send oil."

Backwoods Courting. He sat at tho side of the room in a big White oak rocking chair. A long cared dctrhound snapping at flies was by his side; a basket of sowing was by hers. Both rocked incessantly -that is, tho young people, not the dog and bas ket. He sighs heavily and looks out of the west window at a crape myrtle tree; alio sighs lightly, and gazes out of tho cast window—at a turnip patch.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1879. The association of gentlemen on the Sound who are sometimes un justly styled "the ring," some of whom took such delight a few weeks ago in setting down hard on S. W. Hall, have undoubtedly "put their foot in it," and the Olympia ( 'ourier's three columns given to describing his rascalities are worse than wasted. The people above mentioned were no doubt astonished on Friday last, by reading the following dispatch in the Oreyonian: Cahi.invii.i.e, 111., Jan. 30.— S. W. Hall, of Olympic, \V. T. who was brought to this city us fjteorjffl H. Holllday, applied fi>r a writ of habeas corpus yesterday. Judtrc C harles L. Lane president at the trial.

A.LOVKR'H TESTS. I sat to-day beneath the pine And saw the long luke shine.

A Bad Ji dokFok Tbadk.—Judge Lewis is the man we mean. He has injured the whisky trade and gamb ling trade, and the squaw brothel trade immensely, and it is for this reason that so many engaged in those trades hate him. The gambling and brothel trades he has literally de stroyed in his district, hardly a trace of them existing in any part. A friend in Seattle informs us that he was positively assured by a fellow citizen the other day that Judge Lewis had done a great injury to the business interests of their town. "For instance," said this enemy of the Judge. "Three years ago the town was lull of whisky and women and other like attractions to coal miners, mill hands, loggers and sailors. These fellows would come in, after a season of hard work, witli lots of money in their pockets. They would go on a jamboree and by the time they got through with it they wouldn't have a dollar. The people of the town •would get it all, the saloon keepers, women, hospitals, doctors and drug gists dir...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT* THURSDAY, I'KBIU ARY HO, 1879. lveports from Alaska show the sit uation there to be alarming. Theln dians appear to have begun to eagry out their oft repeated threats to rid themselves of the white population, and at kst accounts t the white people of Sitka had taken refuge in the 'priest's house for protection against the savages. That a portion of the Territory over which the stars and stripes are supposed to tloat should be left entirely unprotected by a military or naval force and without any show of a civil government is a lasting shame and disgrace to our boasted institutions. The prompt action of the British authorities at Victoria in sending a naval vessel to the relief of the people of Sitka is a reproof to our government to take prompt measures to afford constant protection to our citizens in Alaska. Civil government should at once be given by Congress to that far off Territory and a naval vessel kept constantly in Alaska's waters. It turns out that ...

In the fourth year of their wedded life Mrs. Hell was tatter, suddenly ill and expired the next day. The old churchward of Kilmare, stood on the side of a bill, anl immediately m the rear of the charch and adjoining the Chancel was the tomb o! the Bell family. Here, in accordar.ee with immemorial usage, the body of the decease 1 lady was to repose, and there it was deposited the third day after her demise.

Killed by n Meteor. Covington, Ind., January 15.—0n Tuesday night last, Leonidas Grover, who resided in the vicinity ot'Xewton, Fountain county, met his death in a way that is probably without parallel in this or in any other country. Mr. Grover was a widower, living on his farm with a married daughter and her husband. On the evening re ferred to, the married couple had been absent oil a visit to some neighbors and upon returning at a late hour entered the house, finding everything, to all appearance, in usual order, and supposing that Mr. Grover had al ready retired, went to bed themselves. Next morning the daughter arose, and having prepared breakfast went to the adjoining room to call her father, and was horrified to find him lying on his shattered bed, a mutilated corpse. Her screams brought the husband quickly to the bedroom, and an inspection disclosed a ragged open ing in the roof, directly over the breast of the unfortunate man, which was torn through as if by a cannon shot,...
