Egiilio Sarconi, deputy vico chaucelor in tl:e ministry of grace and justice, set out from Home about the middle of August last to enjoy bis month's holiday at Corleto Perticara, a hamlet iu the Basilicata, and about half a day's journey south of Potensa, the oil iff town of the province. His family bad preceded him thither, and in his eageroeM to join it with the least delay p( >ssible he stayed no longer in I'o tcnza than to hire a vehicle, accepting, in fact, the first that offered itself. Ou ho went, anticipating the joyous re ception in store for him, and—high legid functionary as he was —thinking nothing of the law and as little of its breakers, when suddenly, some six miles from Potenza, ho was roused from his reverie by two gruff voices bidding the driver pull up. Presently two muister faces appeared at the win dow; two rifles were leveled at him; and he was told to alight immediately. Unarmed himself, with no assistance near him for miles around, ...

YANCOI >ER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIALPAPEK OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Mrs. Kate Sprague. Yesterday 1 met an Ohio gentleman intimately acquainted with the Sprague family of Rhode Island, who gave me some particulars of their first meeting. It is v eil to be known since the recent publications of their calamities. " Kate Chase,'' said this gentleman, " was alwavs a willful, pleasing, coquet tish girl Her father idolized her, and probably from his excessive admiration arose her propensity to look for admira tion, to expect it, ami to labor for it among other men of equal note. " She first met Gov. Sprague at the Kennard House, Cleveland, Ohio. Kate had 1 sen stopping several weeks with Hon. R, C. Parsons-, who was a favorite 1 of hir father, and about that time a Member of the Legislature, afterward Speaker of the Assembly. FIRST SEES IPRAOUE.

Oliver Goldsmith. Sidney Smith once said of a certain quarrelsome person, "that his very face was a breach of the peace." The por trait of Goldsmith, given to posterity by the genius of Sir.Joshua Reynolds, is so different from the ideal the reader of his writings would inevitably picture of him, that one can but consider that nature committed a breach of propriety when she fashioned him externally heavy and supercilious, while inwardly brilliant and genial. Cheerfulness and the pleasure, of life in the abstract shine like sunlight through his writings. A man who had, so to speak, a physical affinity with nature should have been moulded by nature in her kindliest mood. Burns is said to have had a finer face, a more melodious voice, and a bearing more modestly grand than he succeeded in embodying in bis lovely verse. Tim ad jectives which describe Lord Byron's personality, beautiful, sublime, deformed, as accurately describe his works. How ever, as if to make amends for this seeming ...

VANCOn EK INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, OCTOBEB '.), IST;'. It has bees demonstrated over and over again that our army is not suffi ciently large for the work required <>f it. No adequate protection Is afforded the lives and property of citizens in the extreme western states and terri tories, and notwithstanding the con stant predictions of partisan dema gogues in Congress thai there will be no more Indian wars, scarcely a year passes imt In some portion or other of the great West we have an Indian outbreak, sudden and unexpected, costing scores of lives and millions of dollars before it is Anally subdued. Scattered as our little army is, it i- Impossible to concentrate a large force of troops without great delay, and thus we see a column of four companies under Major Thoruburgh, of the lih Infantry, sent out to cope with an in furiated hand of the red devil- whose fighting strength is four or Ave times the number of their opponents. The, result is always the same. Major Thornburg an...

Influence of the Mind on the Body. Andrew Crosse, the electrician, had been hitten severely by a eat, which on the same day died from hydrophobia. He seems resolutely to have dismissed from his mind tho fears whioh must naturally have been suggested by these circumstances. Had he fielded to them as most men won id, he might not im probably have succumbed within a few days <>r weeks to an attack of mind- ' created hydrophobia —so to describe the i fatal ailment which ere now has been known to kill persons who had been 1 bitten by animals perfectly free from rabies. Three months passed, during which Crosse enjoyed his usual health. At the end of that time, however, lie felt one morning a severe pain in his arm, accompanied by severe thirst. He called for water, but "at the instant," he says, "that 1 was about to raise the tumbler to my Hps, a strong spasm shot across my throat ; immediately the terrible con viction came to my mind that I was about to fail a victim to hydrophobia...
