A Strange Warning. I was running a night express train, and had n train of ten ears eight jin-- seng. r and two baggage ears - and nil were well loaded. I was behind time, and very anxions (•> make n certain point, therefore 1 was using every exer tion, and putting the engine to the ut most speed of which she was capable, t was on a section of the road usually considered the best running ground, when a conviction struck me that i must stop. A something seemed to toll me that to go ahead was dangerous, and that I must stop if 1 would save life. I looked back at my train, and it was all right. I strained my eyes, an 1 peered into the darkness, and could see no sig nal of danger, nor anything betokening danger and there I could see live miles in the daytime. I listened to the work ing of my engine, tried the water, looked at the scales, and all was right. 1 tried to laugh myself out of what I then con sidered a childish fear, but, like Ban quo's ghost, it would not down at my biddin...

Sweet oil will cure poison of almost any nature, both on man and beast. The patient must take a spoonful of it inter nally, and bathe the wound for a cure. To cure a horse it takes eight times as much as for a man. Snake bites may also be cured by it. It will cure bloat in cattle, caused by fresh clover, ft will CUM the stings of bees, spiders or other insects, and persons who have been poisoned by a low. running vine called ivy, may find in it an effectual remedy. The following is said to be an excel lent remedy to ...

Olympia Notes. The daily Olympian has passed into the hands of Mr. C. B. Bagley, who will take editorial control. J. M. Mar phy remains as usual prophet-in-chief of the Standard. "Success to them both, say we." Dr. Runts Wlllard, who left 01 jrmpla a few months ago for Edinbnrg, Scot land, to prosecute bis medical studies, received the highest honors on exami nation in that city. He stood far in ad vance of many applicants who have studied for years, and was the only American admitted.

Franklin in Philadelphia. Mrs. Uelsjcca Heeding Davis attrib utes to the advent of Franklin in Phila delphia, the birth, growth, and life of tho intellect and development of that city. She writes in Scribner's .- The advent of Franklin into the city on the day when, a shabby lad of seven teen, he walked up High street munch ing his roll, really marks the date of the birth of intellectual life of Philadelphia. There is not an effort for her improve ment, mental or practical, whieti cannot be traced to its origin in tho teeming brain of the energetic printer. Schools, universities, free churches, public libra ries, drainage, Arc and military compa nies, street lamps and street sweepings —every reform, from the broad policy of the statesman to the smallest detail — bears somewhere the lwld scrawl, Frank /in fecit. The wisdom and scholarship of that day were wholly drawn from books. Franklin dealt directly with the great natural forces, physical and human;out of the unlikely material of...

Early Printing: in America. The first work known to have been printed in America was a sort of hand book for the Spanish priests, issued in 1540. having the following title: • Christophorons Cabrera Burgensis ad lectorem, fncci baptism) ministr. Eieo !on leastiehon." The author was Christopher Cabrera, of Burgos, Old Castile. The latter por tion of tho book is translated as follows: ' This Manual for adults was printed in the great city of Mexico, by tho command nnd nt the expense of tlie most reverend men, Bishops of New Spain, nt the house of .Tnnn Gromber ger, in the year of the nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ one thousand live hundred and forty. On the 18th day of the month of December." But one copy of this work, and that sadly mutilated, is known to be in ex istence; it is in a private library at Mad rid. Cromberger, who has thus achieved immortality as being the first printer in America, died in Mexico about A. 1). 1544. Before leaving Spain, he "had been tlie proprietor of...

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 88, IMB. Clarke County Kepablieui Conven tion. In another column of to day's INDE PENDENT will be found a report of the proceedings of ihe Republican Conven tion, held at the City Hall last Satur day. Everything passed off harmo niously, and with perhaps one or two exceptions, the nominations may be con sidered the best that could have been made tinder the circumstances. A few of the chronic croakers of the county will doubtless charge that llie ticket is made up of too large a proportion of voiing men. It is true, that four or live ot the candidates have yet to reach the meridian of life, but they all have had some experience as servants of tbe people. Hon, Alvin (Turk furnished the best reply to this Objection when he said, "The only way to keep up a good team is to break in the colts." With regard to our own candidature, modesty demands delicate mention. So far as these columns are concerned, suf fice it to say that il we are elected, we shall attend to the du...

Vegetable Leather. Under the title of "Improvements in the Manufacture of Vegetable Leather," a patent has recently been obtained, says the English Mechanic, in this country for an invention which promises to util ize certain waste or cheap products. Fucus of several species and Laminaria are well-known sen weeds, as plentiful on the sea-const as grass in the fields, and waste textile materials of vegetable origin are still in sufficient abundance to find profitable employment in the manufacture of this "leather." Sheets of carded wadding are manufactured with cotton waste or cotton itself, ac cording to the quality required to be produced, uniform in thickness, length and width, which sheets are placed on polished zinc or other metal plates, then the wadding is conted witli a concen trated decoction of "fucus orispus" or |>earl moss, or other fUCUSor mucilagin ous lichen (rock moss), or any other similar mucilaginous substance may be employed. The metal plates requires to l>e...

Acricultm'nl. [Front Willamette Farmer ! Ohii.r Cluh Whkat—Mr. D.

It is a fact many will be glad to knew, that this variety is not safe for winter sowing. Poultry on thb Farm. — Poultry on the farm is a source of profit in proportion to care and atten tion bestowed upon them. If only common scrub chickens are kept and allowed to pick for themselves, the sup ply ol eggs they give in spring and summer, when eggs are cheap, and the few extra chickens sold, will not more than pay tor the feed they wasted and what they eat, while on the other hand, if the improved breed are adopted, they will, with proper attention, give a good supply ot eggs the year through; even when eggs an high and scarce, they continue to lay as well as in mid-sum mer.

Beat Breads of Fowls. There can lie no possible doubt but thnt cross-bred game anil Dorkings are infinitely superior as table fowls to BrahmaS ami Cochins. A game cock and Dorking bens will produce early maturing birds, taking si/c and quality of flesh from the mother, plumpness and hardihood from the sire, whilst there will be a striking absence of offal, arising from the sniallnoss of bono. I commenced keeping poultry in Decem ber last, and bearing, or rather reading, so much in praise of the famous Brahmos, 1 procured eight pullets and a male bird of the best prize strains; but. having always hail a fancy for game fowls, f also bought sixteen game hens and pullets, f may mention that f ob tained the fowls from several different sources, so that they may be considered fair representatives of their respective breeds. Now what is the result ? The sixteen game hens have laid 202 eggs, and are now laying at the rate of eight eggs a day. while the BrahmaS have only laid twenty eggs, an...

$im to u m | mlcp nt itnt, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER SO, [BTB. The Candidates. Mr. Judson, in his speech to the Democratic Territorial Convention, which gave him the nomination of Del egate to Congress, attempted in the most sickly and egotistical manner to draw a comparison between himself and Judge Jacobs, the Republican candi date. He called himself the Washing ton Territory boy, the boy who had grown up and got his education here, and who was of the people, identified With the people and could labor for their interests. He was the coming man, the Moses to lead the tribes of Israel through the mid deserts of terri torial politics. Like Tilden iv hie let-, ter of acceptance when be said, ''It is me they want." Me, tbe "big itijun me," was the principal burden of his harangue.

A Backwoods Editor. For the benefit of those who have not heard it, or forgotten it, we will give the story of a backwoods editor: Yean ago, when a certain Western State (which we shall not name) was a Territory, and with few inhabitants, a voting lawyer from one of the old ■States emigrated thither, and settled in the town of X -. He succeeded ad mirably in his profession, and rose rap idly in popnlar favor. He had been there nearly two years when he induced tk printer to print a weekly paper, of which ho was editor and proprietor. Squire S. was much pleased for a while with editing n paper. He was a man of very low stature, nut he used the edi torial "WO," as frequently ns it' there were a dozen of him, and each ns big us Daniel Lambert. Strange to say. there were men at that time in office who were not a particle more honest than they should be; a thing which probably never happened before and never will again. SquireS. felt nil the patriotism of a son of '78, and poon .I out gra...

Women's and Men's Quarrels. Two men were walking down the street j in Detroit, the Free Press says, arm in arm, followed hy two dogs. The men were talking, apparently, about women, which is an unusual thing, for, says one of them: "Yes,by George. I'm tired hearing about that fuss: every time I go home it's dinged into my ears till 1 wish I was in tho Sandwich Islands, or my wife was, or something." Then the other man said that he "did think that women would quarrel over the most foolish things one over heard of. and he was glad that men did not allow such tri\ i d affairs to disturb their Friendships as women did, and, in fact "— Then there arose n chorus of growls and yells in the rear, and both men turned round quickly to see what was the matter, and saw their respective dugs engaged in fl tussle, and went right back to part them. There was a good deal of dust and dog. swearing, and much ex- i citement, and the ragged edge of a crowd began to appear, when the two owners glided in ...

The Kansas Chief. The Kansas Chief; tlie sheet which published a slanderous article in re. gard to Capt.
