ACROSS THE THRESHOLD OF THE YEAR. 1 stand upon the threshold of the'ycar. Tired with life's passes, wi*h its ahiftirg sand. Like s<>nie bemghtcii traveler Gazing afarucn ss the ccast!and stiand. What sentries halt at thy unbolted rate. Within thy creeping shadows, wan new^ear? What mystic password from the realms of fate Falls untranslated on my listening ear? 1 wait imploring with beseeching hand'— "Tell me your mandate, heralds of the year.

Butler on the Chinese. The following is from the report of an interview of a •'Call" man with Gen 4eral Butler: "No thinking man could have failed to have seen in the overwhelming ma jority by which your new Constitution was adopted, and the way your people declared against Chinese immigration, that it was a vital issue with your State, and must necessarily become one to the whole Union. The conversion of Mr. Blaine and Judge Thurman, however, is rather accent. As along ago as the 4ih of July, 1870, I put myself on record on this question, and if I weie to repeat the speech to-day, I would not change it in any respect. It was at Woodstock, Connecticut General Grant, General Hawley and Henry Ward Beecher were there. You may' remember it I re cently read that speech over, and it is quite fresh in my mind. In substanee, I said, that the true theory of our Gov ernment contemplates that any man, from any part of the globe, has a perfect right to come to this country, enjoy its privileges...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. An Arkansas Romance. A very singular termination to a love affair, says the Little Rock Gazette, has just occui it'd near this city. Some time ago a young man, whom it would do no doubt lie well to call James, fell ia love, or though: lie did, with a young lady •whom it would be well to call Susau. Practical names, both of them. The fondness of James was returned. James told Susan that he loved her, and Susan told James that she loved him. James asked Susan tk> marry him, and Susan said that she would. The young man had spent sleepless nights in contem plating the prize he was attempting to win, but when he found that the pole of attractions had knocked the''persimmon" of Susan's affections, he ceased tissing the cover at night and slept soundlv Finally he mused : "I don't love that girl. I wish that 1 had not acted so rashly in engaging mys< if to her. It would almost bre...

Is the Jeannette Safe. A great deal of anxiety is being felt, and considerable earnest sympathy wasted on the possibility of disaster to Mr. Dennett's exploring vessel, theJean nette. It would not be reasonable, after considering all the facts relating to he* to suppose that she is in the slightest peril. In the first place, in spito of all reports to the contrary, she is strong and well fitted for the undertaking. She was purchased by Mr. Bennett ot Allen Young, who was with McCliniock, the Artis explorer, and is himself one of the most exjKsrienced Artie navigators. When her owner parted with her, it was with so much confidence that he offered to take her back at the selling price at the end of the three years of expected ab sence. Lieutenant DeLong had her put at once into dry dock, and became satis fied by boring that she 'fras perfectly sound. Aft the niizzenmast she is almost entirely of mahogany. Her hu'l is sheathed with Australian ironwood four inches in thickness. She is s...

VANCOUVEK INDEPENI) EXT. THURSDAY, .HIV 1, 1880. There is an extensive forest Are now raging in the Simeoe mountains about 17 miles north-east of Goldendale. The woods are very dry, and if no rain comes to check it, there will be a vast amount of valuable timber de stroyed. The Aiitoriunsays: James Williams caught auother shad in his trap near Fort Stevens a few (lays ago. Shad are being found in larger quantities near the mouth of the Columbia eaeh year, anil will no doubt become a sta ple article.

Untold Millions of Human Beings. Although we have not, nor are we likely to 1 av» for years, any accurate Statistics of the population of the interior of Africa, there is very little doubt that wo have greatly underrated it. Much important information has lately been gathered on the subject, especially con cerning the distribution and density of the inhabitants of that far off land. In the great lake district, for instance, there are territories as thickly settled as many European States, relatively small areas possessing millions of people. The ne gro regions are by far the most populous while the dessert portions are the re verse. A French geographical society gives the estimated figures of various subdivisions of that continent as follows: In the Souden the population is 80,000,- 000, or about fifty-three persons per square mile. The town of Bida, on the Niger, for example, contains fully 90,- 000 inhabitants. East Africa is rated at 30,000,000, and equatorial Africa at some 40,0...

Ascending Chimbarazo. Tlie most remarkable of all Andean ascents has recently been made by the distinguished traveler, Edward Whym per. Writing from Quito, March 18th, he modestly s-ays he hud "polished o!l' Chimbttruzo, Carazou, Sincholagoa and Antisann, nnd passed twenty-six con secutive hours on the top of Cotopaxi, encamping 19,f>00 feet above tht seo." The scaling of Cotopaxi, the ice-clad volcanic cone rising almost under the equator, is, the traveler thinks, his prin cipal feat, though Antisana was round the most diiticult to surmount. The achievement of Whymper cast into the shade the many reccnt ascensions of Mount Blanc and all Alpine adven tures. In 1802 Humboldt was battled in his attempt to reach the summit of Chimbarazo, which he determined by trigonometrical measurement to be '21,420 feet his;h. The eminent savant, BoussingauK, subsequently got within sixteen hundred f«et cf the top, but could go no farther. In 1856 Jules lieniy, a Frenchman, claimed to have accomp...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JI'LY, S fSSO. Mr. John 1?. Allen lias finally an nounced himself as a candidate for the Republican nomination for Delegate to Congress.

Woman's Sphere [ do not pretend to understand either Man or Woman in capitals. I only know individuals, of no' two of whom would I say tlmt I think they arc en tirely equal. But there are two visibly standing before the world (which is juade up of them) to be judged accord ing to their works, and upon these works I wish to ask the reader his and her opinion. This is mine to start with—that when God put two creatures into the woild (I l»ope that persons of advanced intelli gence will forgive the old-fashioned phraseology, which perhaps is behind the age) it was not that one should be the servant of the other, but because there was for each a certain evident and tutficient work to do. It is needless to inquire which work was the highest. Judgment lias been universally given in favor of the man's work, which is that of the protector and food producer— though even here one cannot but feel that there is something to be said on the weaker side, and that it is possible that the rearing of ...
