•••hi- smith O—trHlMg MirMMtam [Frum tin- tfaw fork Times, Starch 2dJ Of the 43 Democratic members of the Senate the south furnishes 30, and the rest of the country 13. In distributing the chairmanships of the regular senate committees, the caucus committee gives '20 to the south and !' to the rest of the eo'in trv. So far as the Senate is con cerned, therefore, the south will, in the words of Blackburn, "be charged with the shaping of the legislation of the land." in other words, the nom inal representatives of fourteen mil lions of people will control the legis lation of forty millions; ortoput the case more exactly, the actual repre sentatives of a population of decid edly less than ten millions of south ern whites—four and a half millions of blacks in the south not being rep tesented in the majority of the Sen ate at all—will shape for some years to come the law-making of the people of the United States.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 1879, Some individuals in Vancouver are inclined to criticise this paper, be cause we have taken occasion to op pose the course of tlie democracy in Congress, and have published some extraets from other papers showing up the aims of southern politicians, and the subserviency of northerners to them. We cannot see wherein it is wrong to pursue that course. Ev ery man should have an interest in upholding and sustaining the United States government, and should dis approve boldly all movements calcu lated to weaken the government or to destroy it: and to any man who does not look through prejudiced eyes the fact is plainly apparent that the actions of the present Congress can not he approved by any but partisans of dishonest politicians who have nothing to lose and everything to gain in the objects sought to he ac complished. Eighteen years ago the country was drawn into a bloody and costly war by southern democrats, he cause their w ill could n...

Trust in Humanity. This trustor" one in another is a beau tiful one. It holds the sweet chrism of heart peace. The broad, generous trust in all around you the true, hearty, whole souled friendship that admits of no suspicion, though so often met ami repaid only by falsity and deception brings its own reward, in the repose of mini, and keeps tin- soul young and fresh after th i years of youth and fresh ness have i'a led. To doubt and distrust the world is to roll life or' »!l that is loveliest and best and most worth living for, is to narrow your views and fetter the expansion of mind and soul. In your skepticism you may resent honest friendship and true love through the fear that behind it is hid a false motive 11 nit would work you ill. In this you may save yourself some times deception, but only to bring you perpetual unrest and disquiet.

Caught by Bandits. Sig. Egidio Sarconi, deputy rice ohaneelor in the ministry of grace and justice, set out from Home about the middle of August last to enjoy his month's holiday at Corleto Perticnra, a hamlet in the Basilicata, and about half a day's journey south of Potenza, the chief town of the province. His family had preceded him thither, and in his eagerness to join it with the least delay possible he stayed no longer in Po tenza than to hire a vehicle, accepting, in fact, the first that offered itself. On ho went, anticipating the joyous re ception in store for him, and —high legal functionary as he was—thinking nothing of the law and as little of its breakers, when suddenly, some six miles from Potenza, he was roused from his reverie by two gruff voices bidding the driver pull up. Presently two sinister faces appeared at the win dow; two ritles were leveled at him; and he was told to alight immediately. Unarme I himself, with no assistance near him for miles around, and the...

VANCO UV E 8 1N 1> E PEN »EN T. THURSDAY, M.U I, 1879. A dispatch of the 24th April from Washington says that the interior department outirely discredits the story of Saluskin, the Indian prisoner, relative t<> the alleged treachery of Moses last summer. The depart ment lias amplest evidence from civil and military officers of the incorrect ness of the statement. The depart ment thinks there is a desire on tin pan of certain whites of Northwest ern i Oregon and northern Washington to provoke hostilities in order to load to expenditures of money bythegov em men t in that vicinity. The Indian bmreau some time since received ad vices from responsible parties thai every effort would be made by certain white men in that locality to provoke Indian hostilities with this end in view. The story about Moses is a revival of the old canard of last sum mer, which was investigated and dis proved at the time. Gen. Howard is also of the opinion that >los.«s is trustworthy.

Difficulties Encountered by Stanley, Stanley's narrative gives uh a vivid idea of travel in Africa under its best conditions; that is to Bav, through a country fairly known, which Ims been visited by white men, and is now tra versed by frequent caravans. Some times they crossed "broad and bleak plains, where fiood was scarce and cloth vanished fast," and sometimes they came to hilly countries, where the people wore civil and hospitable. Sometimes they were in troublesome districts; where there wire warring tribes, w here the people were treacher ous or hostile, and then Stanley could only sleep with his hand on his rifle. There were furious tempests, "and some days nature and man alike warred against us, while on others both seemed combined to bless as." Other troubles came to the intrepid commander and his small army, more especially that potent and untiring enemy of all African travel — typhus, 'this was the enemy who me- Danced Stanley at Zanzibar, and never left his footsteps un...
