England's Future. I have now recently passed through tive of the chief counties of England by high roads and bj -roads. Though brief, my time Lias been spent in varied circles, representing all phases of society. By reason of briefer spaca I have had to merely glance at the great moving events around in the centre of England. However, I have said enough to indi cate to the intelligent by a paragraph the whole story. I am not unmindful of the fact that in ''the land reform cry" but one or two interests are touched se verely. England is essentially a manu facturing country, and in this feature the depression is most severe. There are many persons to whom the downfall of England's home wealth is a wish father to the thought That the dis couraging conditions under which nearly .■very department of British trade now labors and have for a long lime labored are very severe, there is no doubt. But we must not assume that "the bottom is knocked out of things'' here. When all branches of busi...

Exhibits at the Portland Fair. |From the Portland Daily Bee.] MESSRS. ALISKY AND lIEGELE. lsy far the most attractive exhibition we have noticed as yet is that of these celebrated confectioners. Their beauti ful stand was not completed until last night, and the throng of ladies testified to their appreciation of the efforts which these artists have made. In the center is a representation of the Mechanics' Pavilion, about three feet long and of correct proportions, constructed of lozenge paste, and the wonder is that so correct a model was made and no plan of the building before the artist, and no measurements taken. Here are the doors and windows—the garden with its green shrubbery and blooming flowers all of candy, even the battens on the sides of the building and the two beau tiful towers surmounted by waving flags made of sugar. The interior is a fair in itself. Here aro druggists, crockery ware dealers, jewellers, stationery, piles of merchandise, and little candy people inside ...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. MI.IKED. I said it in the meadow path— I say it on the mountain stairs, The best things any mortal hath Are those which every mortal shares. The air we breathe—the sky—the breeze— The light without us and within- Life, with its unlocked treasuries— God's riches —are for all to win. The grass is softer to my tread For rest it yields unnumbered feet; Sweeter to me the wild rose red, Because she makes the whole world sweet. Into yocr heavenly lonAiness Ye welcomed me, O, solemn peaks! And me in every guest you bless Who reverently your mystery seeks. * And up the radiant peopled way, That opens into worlds unknown, It will be life's delight to say, " Heaven is not Heaven for me alone," Rich through thy brethren's poverty! Saeh wealth were hideous! lam blest Only in what they share with me. In what I share with all the rest. The Landlord s Story. During the Winter of 1871, while tra...

Post Office Curiosities. There are a great many people in all parts of the country who seem to be lirmly impressed with the idea that post masters, and others connected with the post oflice, should at all times, and under all circumstances; hold themselves in readiness to act as general agents for the public. Indeed, there seems to bo a wide spread impression, particularly in the remote interior districts, that a postmaster, in addition to all his other duties, should act as a sort of walking directory and universal giver of advice. Nor is he thanked for any efforts which ho may make to meet the public require ment. On the contrary, in nine cases out of ten, if he attempts in good faith to answer some of the many questions put to him by unreasonable correspond ents, he need not be surprised if he is rouudly abused for his lack of detail and the brevity of his communication. In fact, it has grown to be a proverb in the New York post office that all mad men and women in the country ha...

Walla Walla St<tf<xnt<i» says: it is estimated that at this writing there are over 15,000 tons of wheat at the railroad depot in this city awaiting shipment. All the warehouses are stored with wheat to their fullest capacity and large quantities are stacked' 011 the platforms. The cars take daily about 4(H) tons to Wallula, hence there is now grain enough at this station to occupy the boats of the O. 8. N. Co. until the close of navigation. The harvest of eastern Oregon and the Pa louse country, estimated at '20,000 tons will have 10 lay over until the opening of naviga tion in the spring. Owing to early rains, followed by mild and pleasant weather, the fall sown grain i- look ing remarkably well, and promises an abundant harvest next year. A MOSCOW Vktekan. —On Oct. 30, H.

Caught by Bandits. Big. Egidio Sarconi, deputy vice cliaucelorin tl:o ministry of grace and justice, set out from Rome about tho middle of August last to enjoy his month's holiday at Corleto Pertieara, a hamlet in the Basilieata, about half a day's journey south of Potenza, the chief town of the province. His family had preceded him thither, and in his eagerness to join it with the least delay possible he stayed 110 longer in Po tenza than to hire a vehicle, accepting, in fact, the first that offered itself. On ho went, anticipating the joyous re ception in store fur him, and—high legal functionary as he was —thinking nothing of the law and as little of its breakers, when suddenly, some six miles from Potenza, he was roused from his reverie by two gruff voices bidding the driver pull up. Presently two sinister faces appeared at the win dow; two rilles were leveled at him; and lie was told to alight immediately. Unarmed himself, with no assistance near him for miles around, and the d...

Difficulties Encountered by Stanley, Stanley's narrative gives us a vivid idea of travel in Africa under its best conditions; that is to cay, through a country fairly known, which has been visited by white men, and is now tra versed by frequent caravans. Some-I times they crossed "broad and bleak plains, where food was scarce ami cloth vanished fast," and sometimes they came to hilly countries, where the people were civil and hospitable. Sometimes they were in troublesome districts; where there were warring tribes, where the people were treacher ous or hostile, and then Stanley could only sleep with his hand on his rifle. There were furious tempests, "and some days natuie and man alike waned against us, while mi others j both seemed combined to bless us." | Other troubles came to the intrepid j commander and his small army, ' more especially that potent and untiring enemy of all African travel— typhus. This was the enemy who me naneeil Stanley at Zanzibar, and never left lii-t foots...

She stands b«snle the cottage door To watch the (lying day, Iler raven hair is sprinkled o'er With tlakes of silver gray; And many a line of sadness sears That pale yet lovely face, To mark where slow and silent tears Have left their lasting trace. And still her whispered thoughts will tell Of scenes that are no more. And scan the once-loved forms that dwelt On mem'ry's shadowy shore; Again the little cot to deck. That now so empty stands, Again to feel around her neck The touch of tiny hands. How long, the weary spirit cries. Within thi-. - world of pain.

The Esthetics of Clothes. A correspondent sends a note inquiring what is meant by "full drtss." That term is not quite so strijtly construed on this side of the country as on the other, and especially in Europe. For instance, at an artist's reception in this city, a year fiijo or more, the B>nno requisition was made, it created a, great deal of flut tering at the time, partly for tho reason that only one artist was positively t known to have a dresscoat, although two had been seen in that costume. It whs inferred that the scttond costume had been hired for a special occasion. Bo hemia was especially stirred because there was a great dearth of dress coats among the fraternity, but no lack of la tent genius and other accomplishments. The question was at that time referred to several experts, not so much to get an exact detinition of the term as to make it broad enough to let in well dressed people who were not in full dress. At some former receptions there had been a license not al...

VAXCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 27, 157'.1. A severe winter lias set in early in European eountries, with unusually deep snows and cold weather. The Atlantic coast of America also experi ences great storms and early cold j weather. _ United States Senator Bruce, of ■ Mississippi, lias purchased ten thous- i and acres of land in Kansas, and will make his home there when his term : expires in the senate. This is a chap ter in the new exodus that looks like business. Another victory by the Chileans! over the allied armies of the Peruvi ans is reported, in which tlie latter | were badly used up. It begins to look j as though ttie plucky Chileans will certainly win the centest, being the; better off in men, money, prestige, 1 and activity.
