The Wonderful Sinks. Upon this subject the Eureka Senti nel says that all of the principal and many of the smaller streams in Nevada have no visible outlets. The larger riv ers all terminate in lakes of considerable area, respectively. The most singular thing is that the water supply in these lakes is at all times the same. The Spring freshets, tilling the livers from hank to hank, work no' perceptible change in the reservoirs. What, becomes of all this water u> the, mystery. It has been the generally accepted theory that there exists a subterranean connection between the Nevada "sinks" and the Pacific Ocean. But this theory is now disputed by a gentleman who has re sided on the shores of Humboldt Lake for years. The Winncmucca Silver State comments on the above as follows: "A great many persons entertain the opinion that there is a subterranean out let to the Sink of the Humboldt. One of these expressed his views on the sub ject in the,presence of Walter Schmidt, who has resided...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JUNE 19, IST'.t. The little end of thchorn is small in size but the confederate bigadiers manage to squeeze through it, one at a time, as they did once before at command of the people of the north. A tost case t'lom the Mormons on polvgamy is now before President Haves and cabinet. The probabilities are that the decision will be against polygamy, as the President will decide that way, while the cabinet is evenly divided. The Burlington Hawkeyt says: "Our brethren of the Southern States can't mend their own levees, nor build their own railroads, nor take care of their own sick; but they can build more confederate monuments in a month than we of the North could pay for in a year.'' The following now Postmasters have been appointed in this Terri tory: Jay Stillman, Boisfort, Lewis county; Harriet Harvey, Hangman's creek, Stevens county; J. S.

Spiders as imgineers. On going round the pardon this morn ing, 1 perceived what seemed a small piece of,cheese, apparently floating in the air straight before me. On coining up to it I found that it was suspended from a spider's web, which was spun right across the path. Due's first hasty thought was that this spider had found a piece of cheese below, and taking a fancy to it, was then drawing it up into its web to cat it. Further examination however, showed that the substance was not cheese, hut a small pebble much re sembling that edible, evidently taken from the gravel walk beneath. There was nothing tor the spider to attach his web to on the walk, so he had selected a suitable stone to balance his web. which indeed it did admirably, the web being attached to trees on either side of the wall;, and weighted below by the stone, so as to be nearly in a perpendicular position. The stone was connects! with the web by a three-fold cord, the strands of whieh were attached to different p...

A Cloud Burst. On Wednesday afternoon, May 28 according to the Pendleton Indepen dent, a violent rain and hail storm 00- oured on the head-waters of the east fork of Birch Creek. It spent its greatest force in a line along the foot hills, extending from Spring Hollow to the head of Stewart Creek, a dis tanee of about six miles, and traveled in a direction from S. W. to N. E. These waterspouts or cloud bursts, as they are locally termed, have of late years become periodical, and fall gen erally during the months of May and June. The storm was one of extreme fury. The Water did not fall in the form of rain, but rather seemed to come down in a homogeneous mass of water mixed with hail. The hill sides appealed to be a foot deep with moving water, rocks and earth; on the head of Spring Hollow some mountains are entirely stripped of soil and vegetation. The creeks rose suddenly and came down presenting, in some instances, a front of ten to fifteen feet, carrying terror and de struction in...

YANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. A Perilous Voyage. BY CHARLES E. HURD. Those familiar with the lumber re gions, not only of the United States, but of Canada, know that the great streams which iloat the huge rafter of of timber down to the various ports and mills along their course are often made serviceable for other purposes. Some times the lumber-man or shingle-maker takes his family with him to the scene of his Winter labors ; and in the Spring, when the season's work is ended, places them —women and children, sometimes a round dozer—on a raft of logs or shingles, and. keeping close to tlio shore, lloats down, ten, twenty or thirty miles to his home. , James Allen was a well-to-do farmer of Woodstock, on the St. John river, and besides the income derived from his land and dairy, he owned, in connection with his son, a tract of wild timber some dozen miles up the river. 15egin ning to turn his advantages to ...

A Sensible Fashion. A story, good enough to be true, is told of a young Englishman, who had been voice to the time-worn complaint of snobbish people about American so. ciety: "It is quite impossible, you know, to have a high-toned society where there is no aristocracy." "What do you mean by aristocracy I" a lady asked. "Why-aw\vou-know; J mean ten thousand people who live anywhere and have nothing to do." "As for that," replied the lady,."we ! have such a class tao. hut we call them ' tramps." The answer was something more than polite chaffing. Th< re is a world of difference, on the score of comfort and cleanliness, between living anywhere with nothing to do, backed by a fortune Sufficient to make life a pastime, and j doing the same with a beggar's wallet; still, in spite of the superficial contrast, the moral difference is not so very great. The man whose only claim to considera tion rests upon the circumstances that the chance of inheritance has made him able to gratify his s...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1879. R. D. Hume of Astoria is endeavor ing to establish a Coasting trade, north and south of the Columbia river, and for this purpose has placed Capt. Carrol in charge of the steamer Alex Duncan, with headquarters at Astoria. This steamer will put in at all the small harbors on the Coast from. Cal ifornia to the Straits of Fuea.

The Darien Canal. 'llie first route is, next to the Nicara- j guan scheme, tlie longest. It crosses the j State of Cauca, in the United States of Colombia; on a line measuring 290 kilo metres.

The ad- ; vantages of this route arc the small j amount of digging and the fact that j comparatively little stone is encountered on the route.

PuY.vLLi r Coal Minks—A recent examination,of the coal fields on the Puyallup developed the fact, that on CarboH river, (a branch of the Puy allup,) and only about three miles from Wilkeson, there are seven veins of coal within a space of 900 feet along the river, making an aggregate of fifty-six feet of solid coal of good quality, and that all lay at the same angle of 45 degrees, showing that the coal is in place at that point. The Northern Pacific Company builtf their road to Wilkeson, at a cost of six hundred thousand dollars, without having careful survey of the coal field made, and have spent seventy thous and more in costly blundering exper iments, and have finally shut down their mine in disgust. There is an independent company at work, and they drove their gangway over 1500 feet, all the way in coal, but with only a light lift, but will reach a heavy deposit, and other veins on the Gale claim, in about four hundred feet more in about two months.

Heading Off a Lawyer. Rufus Choate, in an important marine assault and battery at sea case, had Dick Barton, chief mate of the cliiper ship Challenge, on the stand, and badgered him for about an hour that at last Dick got his salt water up and hauled by the wind to bring the keen Boston lawyer un der his batteries. At the begining of big testimony Dick had said that the night was "dark as pitch, and raining like seven bells." Suddenly Mr. Chcate asked him: "Was there any moon that night? "Yes, sir." "Ah, yes! A moon —" "Did you see it?" "Not a mite." "Then how do you know there was a moon?" "Nauticle almanac said so, and I'll be lieve that sooner'n any lawyer in the world."

Woman's Sphere Found at Last. Baron Huddleton, an eminent Eng lish judge, recently took occasion to say from the bench that it was an undoubted fact that a woman told a lie much better than a nan did, and with very much better effect. It was a remarkable cir cumstance that when a woman was de termined to say what was untrue she said it in a much better manner than a man. Whether this was due, to a man feeling that his dignity was to a certain extent offended by a recourse to untruth, he did not know; that was a metaphysic al question into which he would not en ter; but it was certain that a woman told a story much more logically, and, if it was untrue, held to it much more pertinaciously, and with much more the appearance of truth, than a man could.
