Teaching Boys to Write. We believe that the whole of this method is a mistake, that there is no •ingle system of mecanigue for writing, Tind a child belonging to educated classes would bo taught much better and more easily if, after being once enabled to make and recognize written letters, it were left alone, and praised or chidden, not for its method but for the result. Lot the boy hold the pen as he likes— and make Lis Btrokes as he will—hurrv, of course, being discouraged—but insist strenuously and persistently that his copy sha'l be legible, shall be clean, and shall approach the good copy set before him, namely, a well written letter, not a rubbish text on a single line, written as nobody but a writing master ever did or will write till the world's end. He will make a muddle at first, but ho will soon make a passable imitation of his copy, and ultimately develop a characterisic and strong hand, which may be bad or good, but will not be either meaningless, unde cided or illegibl...

VANCOUVER 1 INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JUNK 10, ISSO. Osrllflil of Olilo for l'rcxiiiriit. The National Republican Conven tion which met ut Chicago on Wednes day of last week did not Hose its labors until Wednesday of this week. Sev eral days time was taken up in settling contested seat claims, adopting rules and platform. On Monday the ballot ing commenced', and following is the count on each ballot: The Grant men hung to their candi date to the last, hoping to win by dojj ged perseverance, a determination which gave the opponent* of Grant the chance to unite and name the nominee as they pleased. The result of the con vention is accepted with good grace by republicans everywhere, more es pecially as Gen. Garfield has never been considered a candidate for the nomination, and goes into the contest now with an untarnished name and no promises made or doubtful frieuds to weigh him down. Collector Arthur of New York was nominated for vice president on the lirst ballot. Gen. James A. Garfiel...

Sheridan's Ride. A splendid lyric which has been uni versally pronounced one of the most fer vently patriotic that ever enriched any language or land was composed in Cin cinnati on the morning of October 31, 18G'l. A somewhat minor trilling cir cumstance which cannot be generally know n was the cause of its production at that time, llow its author might have sung later its theme of glory no mortal can tell. Cy> us Garrett, brother-in law of Bu chanan ltea<!, with whom the artist and his family sometimes reside on West Eighth street, that morning discovered in Harper's Weekly, a spirited drawing by Thomas Nast, representing General Philip Henry Sheridan mounted and "tearing madly along the road far ahead of his escort," to join his troops twenty miles away.

The old racing cuts, representing a horse with both fore and hind legs ex tended almost in a straight line with the body will now disappear. Muy bridge, the photographer, lias demon strated by his photographs taken of horses at full speed and in all positions, that no horse ever gets himself in that shape. The hind and fore legs are never extended at the same time, and the animal is generally in a position entirely different from that in which he is supposed to be. Fhe illusion is due to tiie fact that motion is quicker than sight, and that before any im pression of any particular attitude of a racing horse can be conveyed to, and impressed upon the brain, the horse is in quite another position. The Klickitat Sentinel says: The large stock owners, who have for years been ranging their stock in the upper portion of this county, are becoming alarmed at the rapid settlement of tlit county, and a number are at present engaged gathering up their stock with the intention of driving them e...

The Norwegian Feasant Proprietor. The Norwegian peasant proprietor, notwithstanding the advance a»d gen eral diffusion of agricultural k»owledge of late years, still commits contentedly almost every agricultural si». Of any sort of systematic husbandly he has but the most elementary notion. His sys tem of rotation is to meadow the same land for three or four years, without giving it any assistance in the shapo of top-dressing; to break it up then for a succession of grain crops, the last of which only will bo manured, and then leave it fallow to grow grass without seed. Hoot creps, except potatoes, are never grown, and the land is manured, on an average, ence only in seven or eight years. The Norwegian peasant proprietor, like the small Irish tenant, always keeps twice as much stock an he can "feed properly tluring the Winter, and supplements his fodder with birch and aider leaves, bark of the mountain aali, reindeer moss, anil, along the coast, with fish refuse. Although an improve...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AN O COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. A Tale of Lookout Mountain. For ga'imtry at the battle of Shiloh, John Marsha 1 1 was promoted to Lieu tenant of artillery. How he saved bat terv M, Fifth Kegiment, is a nihtter of record in the war archives at Washing ton. It is not that which this article has to treat, but a subsequent and even greater exploit. At various times and places one of the Journal's young men had heard of what John Marshall had done at Look out Mountain, and so one day he made up his mind to have the whole story from the veteran's lips. Mr. Marshall is a veteran of the Eng lish army, ha\ing served thirteen years in the artillery, in those thirteen years he learned the duty of an enlisted man in this branch of the service thoroughly. But to come to the story: In October and November lt>o3, Hooker's army lay in the valley overlooked by Lookout Mountain, which in the latter month they so gallantly s...

Sacking of Porte Bello. Near by is the ruined cathedral, bear ing still vestiges of its former beauty. An the gi!d*d decorations have been de stroyed, and its shrine rifled of what ever of value it contained. But "Some of the antique carving yet remains—the marble pavements and the frescoed walls. Two or three bells still hang in the di lapidated tower, but the rest lie half buried at the base. From these bells the notes of warning rang when Mor gan began that terrific attack that ended in the sack and ruin of the city in 1665. While the cannon thundered from fort and castle, their wild, shrill peal sounded clear and high amid the frightful tumult, summoning all for gen eral defense. At tho other extremity of the street stands the dismantled fort of Todo Hierro, half hidden by the en veloping foliage of the huge trees that have token root in and within its walls. Here Morgan began his attack. He had long had his eye on this point, the fame of whose gieat wealth attracted, while the ...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Tancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. The Art of Destruction. The curious theory was recently ml - vanced bv the Saturday Review that af ter a few more improvements in firealms there will be no more battles. There is a suggestion that this result may have already been reached in naval warfare, in the fact that neither in the Franco- Prussian nor the Ruvso-Tut kish war ■was there any naval battles of conse quence, although all the combatants had squandered immense sums of money on their navies. The inference is that, knowing that in certain contingencies their forces might be exterminated, they forebore to run the risk of ex|(osure to kopeless destruction. The Review ar gues that this will be the ultimate result of contests between nations which equip their armies with the weapons which ■will probably be invented during the mext half century. War will become a specie of game, and the army which, when brought face to ...

It is the tirst suit of the kind on record, but in tke event of the plaintiff's suc cess, it «iii by no means be the last. Sonic time ago, Mr, Finch, of New bern, who is in the jewelry business, exhibited to Miss Waters, a young lady with vhom he was on friendly terms, a beautiful set of real jst. The lady was very Anxious to own tho set. but was not able to buy it. In these cir cumstances Mr. Finch proposed a novel kind of bargain. He said that he would ■ell Miss Waters the set for one hun dred kisses, to be paid at the rate of one kiss daily on each and every day next ensuing from the day of the date of the agreement, excepting nevertheless, each and every Sunday thereafter. It was furthermore provided that Mr. Finch was to call at the lady's house every morning, except Sunday, to receive his 4aily kiss, which...

The regular appro priation bills had all been passed, but there was very little other legislation effected during the entire session, al though there was plenty of business | that ought to have been attended to. 1 This was truly a do nothing congress, as near worthless as one could be con stituted.
