THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 1879. VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. It is announced that no less than eighty English ships are coining to the Columbia river this season to re move to England the surplus wheat crop of Oregon and Washington Ter ritory. Most of them will be loaded at Portland. The most glaring inconsistency on exhibition now in the United States is the fact that Geo. Q. Cannon, a Mormon with six wives, remains un molested and a delegate in Congress, while some poor obscure Mormon like Reynolds was picked up for trial. The damage to crops in England by recent storms is very severe, and adds the finishing touches of mis fortune to an already partial failure. It is declared by competent judges that the rain of the last week has done greater damage in some districts than all previous excessive rains. The Commercial Reporter says the Portland Board of Trade have re solved: "Not to receive any shriveled, smutty, weeviled, damp or musty ■wheat, which will lie rejected, and if in foul condition...

Woman's Sphere Found at Last. Baron Huddleson, an eminent Eng lish judge, recently took occnsion 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 ho 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. A Substantial House. Attention is called to the advertisement of the Mt Hood Agricultural Implement House. This Is one of the most substantia) and popular houses on the Pacific Coa«t, and carrlcs a line of machinery not equaled by any ot...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. A »CR AI'TERXXIS.

There comes to us tho hum of bees; A bird flits by on startled wing, And through dim arches in the woods ft'e hear the swaying breezes sing. With rippling laugh and silvery sheen. Through cool, green haunts of moss and : fern, The brook betrays its hiding place, And clearer grows at every turn. The wild rose lifts its blushing face Above the wayside grasses low, While pale wood lilies iu the shade Their snow-white bells swing to and fro. O, golden Slimmer afternoon.

Streets of London. The streets of London are of every conceivable width and length, and are paved with the Belgian block, the mac adamized roadway, the asphalt, patent pavement and the wooden pavement. In the centre of "the city" the under soil is composed of very coarse debris of all sorts, prominent amongst which are large pieces of flinty chalk, with a fair proportion of ground up bricks; there fore the paviors have not much trouble in making a solid foundation from the start. This, however, does not apply to the north, south, east, west and suburbs, where the soil is largely composed of a very coarse clay, with flinty stones running through it. Out of this clay are made many of the bricks used for building purposes in London. Regarding the use of the Belgian blocks, they first seem to bo all of a un iform size, cut out of granite, a trifle smaller than those laid on Broad street, Philadelphia. They prepare the soil for laying them by first picking the ground to the depth of a fo...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1879. JVSTICE IX JOl BXALISM. The late San Francisco imbroglio, j< which so nearly resulted in the fiercest | ] exhibition of mob violence the Pacific 1 Coast has ever experienced, has for its i immediate cause that element in the journalism of the day which for the ' sake of gratifying a vicious public j 1 craving after sensationalism, oblite- ' rates from its policy that keen sense 1 1 of justice which so guide and control »11 newspapers that they will not pub lish evil reports except for justifiable ends and then only after such reports are proven to be true beyond a reason able doubt. Now there should besuch a thing as justice in journalism the same as in the judicial department of the state. In court a person accused ! of crime is considered innocent until the contrary is proven, and editors i and publishers of newspapers should have a lesson in this regard. A widely circulated and influential newspaper i has the power to crush a...

Winter in South Africa. For the last few days up there, how ever, the cold had been unendurable; snow had even fallen, and had withstood the melting powers of the sup for two or three days, imparting to the hills quite homelike effects, which we never expected to see in South Africa But refreshing as it was to be able to fancy ourselves for a moment in England, the illusion unluckily did not carry us so far as to make us imagine ourselves in side substantial walls, and sitting in front of a glowing tire, with a good sheet of plate-glass instead of a thin canvas between us and the cold. And it is marvelous how unexhilarating is even the most bracing cold, when it has to be encountered in a tent like a sieve, with the moon and stars beautifully visible overhead, and through which the wind sweeps as it list eth, ruffling your hair as you lie in bed. It is distinctly not amusing, but, on the contrary, to the last degree dreadful and depressing, to have to lie in bed to get warm, and fin...

The Good of Marriage. The French savant, Dr. Bertillon, has given tbe result of his study of the mor tality statistics of every country of Europe. He conies to the concluston that marriage is conducive to good health, long life and morality, and is, so to speak, a limited insurance against dis ease, crime and suicide. lie says that a bachelor of 23 has not a 1 >etter prospect of life than a married man of 45; that among widowers of from 25 to 30 the rate of mortality is as great as among married men of from 55 to 60. Taking the French bill of mor tality, he shows that while the annual death rate among married men between '20 and 25 years of ago is rather under 10 per 1,000 bachelors of that age die at the rate of 16 and widowers at the rate of 19 per 1,000. These figures apply to the whole of France, while, taking Paris, it appears that the rate for men between 20 and 25 years of age is 15.7 per 1,000 for mar ried men, 27 per 1,000 for bachelors and 32 per 1,000 for widowers, Wit...

A Dissatisfied Tramp. A gentleman attired in clothes which had seen better days called at the Tribune office on Saturday with a slip cut from the paper, and asked to see the editor. When his request had been complied with, in a measure, he said with a withering sneer : •'Wot are givin' us, young feller, liey? Don't you seewhat you're printing in the paper i Look a here !" and he tendered the reporter a printed scrap, which the reporter took between the points of a pair of scissors, and scrutinized at a re respectful distance. "This, my friend," said the reporter to the representative of the Hendrick B. Wright interest, "this, my friend, seems to be an interesting item about an impecunious gentleman in Winona, Minn., who weeded a cucumber bed for his dinner and sawed a cord of wood tor his supper, and whose demeanor so im pressed the woman of the house that she at once wrote an account of the af fair to the Winona Republican.

Explosions in Mill and Factories The burning of tho great Minneapolis, flour mills, now nearly two years ago, gave rise to the inquiry as to the cause of the conflagration, which was at that time a iuistery. The discussion was an interesting one, especially to those millers who were ingaged in making flour by the new patent process, The conclusion reached, as stated in the Sun at the time, was that the fire, which was accompanied by a great explosion, originated from the combustion of the finely-divided parti cles of flour floating about the mill, which, in some way or oth°r, came in contact either with an intensely heated surface caused by the rapid revolutions of the machinery, or from the floating particles of flour coming in contact with the flame of a candle. The theory then advanced was a novel one, but, accom panied as it was by experimental tests by which the possibility of such explo sions, occurring in the manner stated, was demonstrated, it was very generally accepted as ...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER U, 1879. Maine ami California Elections. The California election on Sept. !?d resulted in a substantial victory for the republicans, they having elected all four Congressmen, and are pretty sure of a majority in the legislature. The judicial and minor officers were many of them on all tickets. Perkins for governor will have a plurality of about 20,000, and the other republican candidates for state officers about the same, in San Francisco the Kearney party elects about two-fifths of the of ficers, and the republicans the others. One notable fact istliat the democracy, which allowed the party to be split, by opposing factions, does not elect a single officer of importance in the en tire state. Kalloch was elected mayor, not because of fitness for the position, but as a rebuke by the people to the cowardly crowd of assassins who run the San Francisco Chronic!), which wins nothing but shame and disaster for itself and its party in this contest...

You bang the spot Where he is not. He Uuyhs, and rubs bis gauzy wings, He scratches head and legs, and sings; He slyly grins, And then begins Some mischief new At once to brew.

A Reminiscence of Niagara. I remember when I was but a boy that a man got into the rapids here, having been carried down in a boat, which was broken to pieces. He had the good fortune to be dashed on a rock, to which he clung. It was at the height of the season—August, if I recollect—and he clung there for fully 36 hours. Every body streamed out of the hotels and the village; the banks of the river, particu larly the west side, were thronged with people anxious to do something to save him. Dozens of plans were suggested; some attempted, but they all failed. Thousands of dollars were offered to any body who would rescue him. The desperate situation of the man had been been telegraphed over the country, and every train brought crowds of passengers hither to witness it with their own eyes. He was then encouraged by shouts from the banks, but whether he could under stolid anything said is doubtful. The world is said to be sympathetic. It is, or appears to be, unsympathetic, be cause the...
