Agonizing. T'.xtract from a speech of Colonel J. S. Ford in the Texas Legislature. An incident forces itself upon my memory. Thirty yean ago Doc Sullivan, Alph Neat and my self, accompanied by Major Neighbors. Indian Agent, went on an exploring expedition to the then unknown region ot El Paso. We spent several months in the Comanche camp and with the people of that trilWe ■were encamped on Brady's Creek, about one hundred and twenty miles above and west of Austin. The bands Oi Bha naco and Yellow Wolf were united[war riors, women and children numbered about five thousand, 1 saw a woman mounted on a hoise and recognized her as an American. She had a fair com plexion.bluc eyes and auburn nair. Cop tain Jim Shaw, a Delaware Indian, the United States interpreter, gave timely warning not to speak to her—that the penalty was death. I gazed upon her in mute indignation and pity. The 1 whole figure was an apt and forcible personification ot despair. Anguish was depicted in every lineament o...

Make a Note- However much the opinions of the San Francisco Chronicle on unimportant subjects may clash with those of some of our citizens, none can deny that it has the fullest and best teports and dis patches concerning the important occur rences transpiring in every part of the world. The "Weekly Chronicle is so in valuable; as a record of current events that those who have become subscribers assert that they could not do without it —no other paper on the coast furnishes such varied, entertaining and instructive matter written in a most readable style.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MAYS, 1879. How true it is that the avenge Bourbon editor seldom learns and never forgets anything, for the truth of which the inquiring mind is di rected to the Port Townsend Demo cratic Prttt, which is still pounding at lion. \Y. 11. Small wood, who edited this paper a short time two years ago. The Pratt ßourbon has not yet learned that this paper changed hands a year and a half ago, and that Mr. Small wood's able pen is entirely occupied with the extensive business of the U. S. Laud office. In plain english we will inform the Press man that Mr. Sinallwood has not written a line of editorial for this paper in nearly two years, and that if he had done so it would make the condemnation of southern rebel brigadiers and their northern dough-face allies none the less deserved.

Concerning the wreck of the Great Republic, the San Francisco Bulletin prints these significant statements: "It is the opinion of many shipmas ters that there is no other place be tween this port and Alaska where a vessel could run ashore with such certainty that the passengers would be saved and tho vessel lost. The pilot which had been in the employ of the vessel since the time she entered the Oregon trade unaccountably left the service a short time ago, and a new pilot was taken on. The trip which ended so disastrously was the second one for the new pilot." In another article, the same paper says, "her taking off without stress of weather is not without precedent." It adds that "the four thousand ton side-wheeler will soon be a rarity in that port, while the iron-screw, as slim as a race-horse, is getting to be a sight as familiar as the ordinary bay craft." Even the side-wheel steamers that plied on the Sacramento river have one by one disappeared. A San Francisco ('«// reporter...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPKFIOF CITY AND COUNTY Vanoouvi-r, Clarke County. Washington Ter ritory. Wild Becky if there was one thing taut the coun try folks of Millvillo were proud of, over ami above the now organ in their "meetin' house," it was the Millvilla boarding school, which capped the very topmost pinnacle of their village. A light set upon a hill, which shed its lit erary radiance over the whole place. Cynthia Adams was the only day scholar ; but she was the Squire's daugh ter, and it was a matter of course that her schooling should be something be yond that of the rest of the village girls. One day, as the scholars were hanging over the school-yard fence, or sitting in groans on the stone steps wailing for the school-bell to ring, they heard a man ■with a lusty pair of lungs shouting, '■Gee, haw, git up thar '." in a voice so loud that it threatened to shake the hills. "Th.it is one of old Miller's whispers, Ido believe." laughed Cynthia. '-He's a farmer about her...

George D. Prentice. We are indebted to the Frankfort Yeoman for tho following important, and certainly a most interesting, com munication from Colonel .J. Stoddard Johnson, Secretary of State, of Ken tucky, in relation to tho late George 1). Prentice and the scandalous stories which have recently found Buoh exten sive circulation touching his alleged Bale of himself to the Confederates in 1861. Aa to what actually transpired in tho old Louisville Journal office, there is but one thoroughly, competent and well-in formed witness now alive, Paul 11. Ship man; for we take it that neither Mr. Osborne, one of tho proprietors, nor Mr. Calvert, an employe of the counting room at that time, is fully conversant with tho facts. The veal power in the Journal in those days was the late Isham Hender son. He was a man of great ability, sagacity and force of character. He had come to the rescue of Mr. Prentice at a critical period, and substantially owned two-thirds of the paper. He was an original...

VANCOUVER IXDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MAY 15. 187<>. After the defeat of the army appro priation bill with its offensive and un constitutional provisions, the rebel brigadiers in congress passed a separate bill, under pretense of pro hibiting the use of the array on elec tion days. There is alteady a law on the l\ 8. statute books that clearly declares the army shall not interfere with elections, except to preserve the peace, and the proposed law would seem to be useless for that reason; but the new bill was so worded that even armed rebellion could not be resisted lawfully by the U. S. government for its own preservation. Persons in tending rebellion could not be more artful in law-making to further their own success. President Hayes on Monday very properly vetoed the bill, and the rebel brigadiers are left once more aground in the efforts to destroy the executive branch of the govern ment. The Sound country is receiving manv emigrants this season, and one verv larje colouv is goi...

YANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AN D COUNT Y Vancouver. Clartia County, Washington Ter ritory. A Sad Story. I had retired to my room after a day of intense exertion, feeling qu'.te tired. All day 1 had been poring over Black stone; and now, to escape from the gloom v offi !6 to my own cheerful room, was, indeed, a great relief. 1 had drawn off my coat and boots and seated myself at the grate, when a tap at the door caused mo to look around sharply, and exclaim— "Come !" In answer to this, a head was thrust in, and then came these words — "A gem'inan to see you, sail." "Show him up," said I, bitiug my lips, for, being an old bachelor, I did not relish being disturbed. A heavy footstep sounded upon the stairs; the door open suddenly, and — there stood my old friend and college chum, Harry Rushton ! "Ed!" exclaimed he, springing for ward and wringing my hand. "Harry, old boy, how are you* Ho sit down take off your coat, and make yourself at home !" "I was very much "flurr...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MAY 82, 1879. The warehouse of Trenchard & Up shur at Astoria was burned on Mon day morning. The loss amounts to #12,000, and insurance to $10,000. The editor of the Fergus Falls (Minn.) Journal, who served in the war under Gen. Sully, in a notice of his old commander's death, says: "Mem bers of the Ist regiment will gen erally hold that he was the best fight ing colonel they ever knew—handled his regiment best. A man of rare coolness, he always gave the right order at the right moment." Senator Slater of Oregon lias in troduced a bill into Congress treating of the Chinese question, to prohibit them from working for any person but Chinamen. None but a Bourbon of his stamp would ever have discov ered that it is right, just, or proper to prohibit by law any person from earn ing his daily bread. When this shall have become a success it will be in order for Senator Slater to have a law passed forbidding Republicans or greenbackers from earning a livi...
