YANCOUYER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. TEN YEARS AFTER. Ten years ago, when she was ten, I used to tease and scold her; I loved her, and she loved me then, A boy some five years older. I liked her, she would fetch ruy bcok. Bring luucU to stream or thicket; Would oil my gun, would bait my hook, And field for hours at cricket. She'd mend my cap, or find my whip, Ah! but boy's hearts are stony! I liked her rather less than Gyp, And far less than my pony. i She loved me then, though Heaven knows why, Small wonder had sho hated, For scores of dolls she's had to cry That I decapitated. I tore her frocks, I pulled her hair. Called red the sheen upon it; Out fishing I would even dare Catch tadpoles in her bonnet. Well, now 1 expiate my crime; The Xeniesis of fables Came after years; to-day Old Time On me has turned the tables. I'm twenty-five, she's twenty now, Dark-eyed, pink-cheeked and bonny; The curls* are golden round ...

"The Star Spangled Banner." Colonel Cohen was the only Burvivoi of Captain Nicholson's artillery com pany of Penoibleß, one of the three Bal timore companies which were stationed at Fort MoHenry during tho attack on Baltimore. On the 13th of Beptember, l*7. r >, then in his seventy-ninth year, he made his last visit to this fort, to look for the last time, with failing vision, UPOO the scene which was so well im pressed Upon his memory in youth, and in which the changes of time, had made such a vast difference. An interview held with him by a member of the Sun's stalF on this occasion was reduced to writing at the time as an interesting contribution to our local history. Cohen said that it was on the 13th of September that the bombardment com menced, and therefore the 13th of Sep tember was his anniversary. He was then barely eighteen years old, being the youngest of three brothers, Jacob I.; Philip I. and Mendes I. Cohen. Capt. Nicholson's company numbered ninety men ordinarily,...

Few C*BtNtlllng .Mimy. People of the Northern States are becoming tolerably familiar with the fact that through the dictates of cau cus and the servility of a few northern democrats in either branch of Congress the eleven States recently in rebellion ara actually controlling the country. The action of the present Congress has taught them this fact. The dominant States are those recently in rebellion, and their representatives are chiefly those who held prominent rank in the confederate armies. The population actually represented is only about five and a half millions. There are four and a half millions of blacks who are practically disfranchised and unrepre sented. 1Q the Senate there are twenty Senators who (ought in the army of the rebellion, and three others who held high civil place in the confeder acy. Forty-two Senators rule the Sen ate and twenty-three rule the caucus. About the same proportions obtain in the House. Thus eleven or twelve States of the south rule Congress. If ...

Modesty of Women. It is strange how different civilization looks upon the same matter. In Japan, for instance, men women anil children bathe together without a vestige of clothing, and with no thought or 'sug gestion of indecency. There is in the United Slates even, a wide difference in the views which different sections ent tain in respect to what constitutes an insult from a man. I: is undeniable that, at the North, a degree of contact and familiarity is tolerated without a thought of impropriety, which, in the South, is resented as an impertinence and insolence. The recent tragedy at Richmond, Va., in which Charles t Curtis was shot dead by John Poindex ter, is a case in point. The murdered man had complimented Miss Isabella Cottrell, Poinde»ter's sweetheart, on her pretty form, and had, as the young lady declared, squeezed her arm rather warm ly in helping her into the carriage. With this as a provocation, Poindexter cowhided Curtis ami then shot him dead, and the jury could not...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 10, 1579. The Portland cricket players went up to Victoria to plav a match and were dreadfully beaten. They ought to have known better than to play Englishmen at their own game. A recent cyclone in Minnesota killed abont a dozen people, wounded fifty, destroyed a town and number less farms, ruining the crops of large section of country. Fortunately this country is never subject to such ter rible disasters. Last Saturday night some drunken Yakima Indians kicked up a row near Seattle, and there was some firing, in which one Indian was wounded. Though pursued the Indians escaped to the woods. No serious trouble is likely to come from it. There is a slight advance in the price of wheat in New York, caused by news of prospective short crops in England and in Europe. In France it is estimated that, in consequence of a bad crop, purchases of foreign grain would amount to twenty mil lion pounds sterling. A weak pleasure steamboat on a little lake near W...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OK CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. ISCOXTEST. Two boats rocked on the river, In the shadow of leaf and tree. One was in love with the harbor; One was in love with the sea. The one that loved the harbor The winds of fate outbore, But held the other, longing, Forever against the shore. The one that rests on the river, In the shadow of leaf and tree, With wistful eyes looks ever To the one far out at sea. The one that rides the billow. Though sailing far and fleet. Looks back to the peaceful river, To the harbor safe and sweet. One frets against the quiet Of the ruoss-grown shaded shore; One sighs that it may enter That harbor nevermore. One wearies of the dangers Of the tempest's rage and wail: One dreams, amid the lilies, Of a far-ofl' snowy sail. Of ail that life can teach us There's nought so true as this: The winds of fate blow ever; But ever blow amiss. Curious Stories of Simiggiing. Perhaps the oddest phase o...

Wild Animals. Probably less is known of the extent, value ancl number of rare and valuable beasts reared in our own midst than any subject of interest to the public. If horses, cows, colts and calves have n market value, so have tigers, lions and their young, for of the latter many are born in the United States every year. Daring the past live years no less than seventeen little lions have seen the light of day though only six reached years of | maturity. The details of their nursing is pecu liar. The lioness is not approached un til the cubs are fully three or four months old. They are then, by means of strategy, separated, and weaning commenced. A quart of milk, together with nice, boneless, juicy cutlets and titbits are given them until the seventh month, which is the critica l period of cubs. If they get over that, they stand a fair chance of living a long time, though the period of tooth-shedding, ■which generally occurs at twelve months, . is attended with danger. It is a know...

Pay of British Army Officers When the army estimates were before the House of Commons recently a mem ber, a former Guardsman, complained of the pay of the Household Brigade being so much more than that of the line. He pointed out that, whereas a Household Cavalry colonel gets .£532, a line colonel gets but £410; a major in the former .£*445, in the latter £351. Captains in the Household Cavalry get £'J7 5, lieu tenants £188, second lieutenants £140, and adjutants £237 ; while in the line cavalry the pay for these grades was £266, £164, £146, and £209. In the Foot Guards, majors receive £419, cap tains £282, lieutenants £233, second lieutenants £100; while in the line the pay of a lieutenant-colonel commanding is£3lo, a captain £211, lieutenant £118, second lieutenant £95. These figures will show what a much better thing it is to be in the New York police than in her Majesty's army. The humblest door man in the noble force which guards our lives and property receives $524 more than a...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 17, IST'J. Very warm weather prevails iu the Southern states. On Sunday at Charleston, South Carolina, ten whites and five colored persons died from sun stroke. More damaging storms in tho east, more particularly in Ohio. Our peo ple complain of a cold, wet summer, fcut other parts of the country suffer tar more than this coast. The New York Tribwu., reviewing European crops, says that even if the accounts are approximately correct, the demand upon this country will be far greater than ever before. The government in Franee is very much put out because the English people gave the dead prince Napoleon a royal funeral. The ruling party in France never does like England. The Yakima Indian Agent, Rev. Wilbur, has his Indians so well in hand that he was able to spend a couple of weeks at Goldendale, running a camp meeting. All is quiet on the reservation. \v m.

Irene's Auction. "And must all go ? Can nothing be . 1 saved?" querulously questioned Mrs. Ar- i' thur, her hands listlessly folded across j her lap, her air betokening utter help- 1 lessness as she looked pitifully toward 1 the beautiful girl whom she addressed "Nothing, mamma," answered the lat- ; ' ter, drawing nearer as she spoke and ,' kneeling at the other's side, while she laid her linger caressingly upon her mother's pale cheek —"only each other : } but papa's death has taught us how much 1 that is. Don't worry, dearest. I hope ' the sale will enable us to buy furniture , more suitable to the few rooms which ' for a time must be our future home, un til I can secure some pupils and get the litt'e home in the country where you are to live, surrounded by birds and flowers, and forget that the red flag ever waved from your door."

Rag Carpets. In nine cases out of ten, one who lacks energy to make a rag carpet will not have the means to buy a store carpet even at 50 cents per yard, when it must be cash in hand; and then, if purchased, it is a poor thing, and will not, with the b&t of care, endure the wear of every day use for one season. Rut even that would pay by giving the house a more habitable appearance, for a house with bare floors, though it be ever so well fur nished otherwise, looks naked and barn like. Rut a rag carpet pays better in an ordinary farm house, because it wears better and is better adapted to the cir cumstances of the family, and corre sponds with the usually plain furniture. It pays by subduing the noise caused by the tramp of boots, the moving of j chairs, the rattliug of dishes, and in softening the tones of voices. Indeed a rag carpet has a softening aad refining influence upon every member of the family. Even those rough boys forbear to scuffle in the house, because it will in ...

An Amphibious Monster. On the 25th of June, says the Day ton News, while Samuel Isaac Paper, Horace Murch and John Black were encamped near the banks of Rock Creek Lake, in Whitman county, they saw an animal in the water which from the description, is a nondescript, a sort of amphibious monster. It was of a dark color. At one time it looked as if it might be a sea horse; at another its entire body floated on the top of the water, and it was judged to be about forty feet long, and its body about three feet in circumference. Its head resembled in shape the head of the fish known as the sucker. At one | time they were within one hundred yards of the monster. Rook Creek Lake is about two hundred yards wide and fifteen miles long. The Indians will not go near the lake, they having a superstitious dread of it and its sur roundings. The party tried to get some Indians to go to the lake, but they peremptorily refused. It will be remembered that some of the largest bones ever discovered were...
