VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL TAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Y moouver, Clarke County, 'Washington Ter ritory. The Old Mill Pond. Who is there who has not in some re-1 cess of the memory a dear old haunt like this, some sucli sleeping pond radi- j ant with reflections of the scenes of early j life I Thither in those Winter days we came, our numbers swelled from right and left with eager volunteers for the j game, till at last almost a hundred strong we rally on the smooth black ice. The j opposing leaders choose their sides, and ' with loud hurrahs we penetrate the i thickets at the water s edge, each to cut his special choice of stick—that festive J cudgel, with curved and club-shaped end, known to the boy as a "shinny stick," ' but to the calm recollection of after life j principally as an instrument of torture, j indiscriminately promiscuous in its play- J ful moments. How clearly and distinctly I recall those toughening, rollicking sports of the old mill pond 1 I see the two op posi...

Our Treatment of the Insane. Dr. Hammond, in the International Review for March, presents tliis topic in an able manner. The treatment of this class of unfortunates has taxed the generosity, philanthrophy and ingenuity of benevolent men for nges, yet in read ing thfi article mentioned it would sec in that appliances for the treatment of the "mind diseased" are yet fur from being in all instances of that humane charac ter which misfortune should always ex cite. Rumors in regard to the bad management of the Longview Asylum in Ohio became so prevalent that the Legislature of that State appointed a committee to investigate them, and the following extracts from the report of this committee are given by Dr. Hammond: According to the testimony of several eye-witnesses, a punishment frequently and sometimes gleefully resorted to by attendants in this asylum is one known as "taking down." "Taking down,' in the words of the testimony, consists in tripping or throwing the patient to the floor,...

According to the London Globe, Dr. Rudolph Kalb, an eminent philologist, has traeted the language of the ab original Indians of Peril and liolivia, to pure Aryan roots held in common with the Semitic race, lie concludes from this that America was peopled first, and that the highlands of Bolivia were first the cradle of the human race: or, in other words, Adam and Eve were Americans! The Panama railroad people are con cerned about the railway across the isthmus of Tehuantepec, for the con struction of which acompanvhas been organized with a grant of land from the Mexican government.

Caught l»y Randits. Sig.

His family had preceded him thither, and in his C:agerness to join it with the least delay possible lit? stayed no longer in Po tenza tln-.u to hire a vehicle, accepting, in fact, the first that offered itself. On ho went, anticipating the joyous re ception in store for him, and—high legal functionary as he was- —thinking nothing of the law an 1 as little of its breakers, when suddenly, some six miles from I'otenza, ho was roused from liis reverie by two gruff voices bidding the driver pull up.

The arrangements for a proper represen tation of liis fellow members at the last services are made with little regard to expense ; his virtues are declared in long and eloquent eulogies in Congress, and eiegantly printed volumes of these trib utes are distributed by the thousand. Uy the annual report of the clerk of the House of Representatives for the year ending June 150,1879, it appears that the funerals of members who died in that year cost the government §13,- 366 97.

A recent Duluth -paper s»'iit us by a friend, boasts of a blast funuice, a foundry ami machine shop, a saw mill ami a million bushel elevator, all to be built there this season, and occas ioned by the revival of Northern Pa cific Railroad affairs. The Oregon Supreme Court has de cided against the law prohibiting the employment of Chinese on public works, and the Supreme Court of Cal ifornia ha> j-ust rendered a similar de cision. There is no way to get rid of the Chinese lawfully except by annul ling the treaty with China. The Republican Committees in Idaho attempted to appoint delegates to the national convention after the same style of machine work that was done in this Territory, but the people made such a row about being deprived of the few political rights they now possess under a Territorial government that the general committee was com pelled to call a'i\ ritorial Convention, in the usual manner.

TANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke Connty, Washington Ter ritory. "American Motherhood." There is an editorial writer for the Sunday edition of the New York Times who is devoting himself with much as siduity, if not assininity, to the several phases of female life in this country Iti some capacity he has evidently had an opportunity to observe women and their habits in the Fpliere of upj>er ten dom. That either the front or the back stairs of Murray Hill resiliences and Saratoga, Long Branch and Newport hotels have been used as places of obser vation upon the female sex he has made apparent in every article. He assumes the air of a severe and somewhat cyn ical critic of that society and thus escapes the vice of toadyism, but his fault lies in the common practice of gin eraiizing from a very limited range of facts, and possibly, of ideas. His las* contribution is on ''American Motl'c - hood. ' This is a theme which shou'd certainly iuspire b...

Exactly Just So!—A well con ducted journal never, in the long run, fails of appreciation in an intelligent community. Tt needs not be hotly partisan. A broad and independent declaration of opinions always secures confidence. The better class of read ers do not want a newspaper to con form to all the opinions. They want honesty, independence—the courage which dares to utter and can afford to wait for public approval.—Tiller.
