VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL TAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. A Royal Romance. It was in October of tlis year 1839 that the two youngCoburg princes came to England. They brought with thorn a letter from King Leopold, which rau as follows : My Dearest Victoria Your cous ins will themselves be the bearers of these lines. I recommend them to you. They are good and honest creatures, deserving vour kindness—not pedantic, but really sensible and trustworthy. I have told them that your great wish is that they should be quite at their ease with you. The young men arrived. Their cousin, no longer the little girl of Kensington, in ihe homely old-fashioned house, but a great queen, received them at the top of the royal staircase, amidst all the magnificence of A\ indsor Castle, as if these two wandering knights had been emperors. But after this grand recep tion, the commonest of incidents brings back the princely travellers and the royal circle into ...

A Big Mistake. Recently a church hail a new minis ] ter. He is a nice sociable gentleman,, but being from a distant State of course lie was unacquainted with our people; therefore it happened that during his pastoral calls he made several ludicrous blunders. One of them was as follows: The other evening he called on Mrs. Hadtlpn. She had just lost her husband and naturally thought that lib visit was relative to the sad occurrence. So, after a few commonplaces had been exchanged, she was not at all surprised to hear him remark : "It was a sad bereavement, was it j not, Mrs. Haddon f' "Yes," faltered the widow. "Totally unexpected 1" , j "Oh, yes; I never dreamed of it." "He died in the barn, I suppose." "Oh, no; in the house." "Ah, well, I suppose you must have thought a great deal of him." "Of course, sir " —this wir.h vim. The minister looked rather surprised crossed his leg?, and renewed the conver sation. "Blinu staggers was the tlisoa.no, I be lieve," he said.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 15, 18S0. We publish on the first page the platform adopted at Cincinati by the democratic national convoution. Our readers can form their own judgment concerning it, which is best done by comparing it with the platforms adopted by the party for twenty years back. An exchange says the excursion scheme from the East to Oregon, got ten up by Rev. Isaac Dillon, was a failure financially. On the excursion train coming west the excursionists made up a purse of 8100, which they presented to Mr. Dillon to assist him in making the scheme cleai of debt. The Yakiuia Record says a nugget worth .-?4+S has como from the Swauk mines in that county. The same party has a numbei of smaller nuggets. It also speaks of rich prospects having been found near Ellensburg in that county, and says: We also heard a rumor of a rich find of quartz on Wil son creek, but could not trace it up, vet the quartz was found, and we saw a specimen. It is very rich with free gold. Th...

Oh! why should the strong oppress the weak Till the latter go to the wall: On this e.".rth of ours, with its thorns and flowers, There is room enough for al'.. If a lagging brother fall behind, And droj g from the toiling hand, If fear and doubt put his soul to rout, Then lend him a helping hand.

For there's room enough for all. And if, by doing your duty well, You Bhould get to lead the van. Brand not vour name with a deed of ...

Life in Greece. An Athens correspondent o£ the Pall Mall Gazette writes as follows under date of May 13 : Although not one of :130 and odd days set apart for re ligious observance by tho Orthodox church, to-day is, nevertheless, a high festival in Athens. It is the Ist of May, old style—the Feast of Flowers, and" all the world goes maying and pic liicing, to eat roast lamb and dandelion salad" and drink the wines of Fames under the gray olives of the Attic plain, or the black firs of Patissia, or the blos soming almonds and quinces on the gar don banks of tho Kephissus. The feas*, indeed, began over night, for -all yesterday afternoon the footpaths of street, and of the ends of those called Stadion and University, which converge in Concord place, were crowd ed with flower sellers offering their nose gays and their flower starred wands and clusters of woven green, and their wreaths of daffodil and anemone and apple blossom, with which the Athenian burgess sportively crowns himself wh...

■VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, 'Washington Ter ritory. A Thrilling Story. In the year 1526, James Lynch Fitz stephen, a merchant who was at that time mayor of Galway, in Ireland, sent his only son as commander of one of his ships to Bilboa, in Spain, for a cargo of I wine. The credit which he possessed was taken advantage of by his son, who se creted the money with which he was entrusted for the purchase of the cargo;' and the Spaniard who supplied him on this occasion sent his nephew with him to Ireland, to receive the debt and estab lish a further correspondence. The young men, who were nearly of the same 1 age, sailed together with that apparent j confidence and satisfaction which eon- ' genial pursuits generally create among mankind. The ship proceeded on her j voyage, and as every day brought them j nearer the place of destination and the j discovery of the fraud of young hitz- • Stephen, he conceived- the diabolical res- ! o...

Charging the Battle Line Over on the right our infantry were gradually falling back, and the center could hardly hold its ground. The enemy could spare two brigades and still push our right. They were now bringing them up under cover of the • woods to hurl them at our left. All our troops were in action, and men died on the battle lino with the dogged dater luination not to givo an inch of ground. Now there is a lull. No need to tell a soldier what it ueans. The enemy is changing his bat ;le lines so as to include the reinforce ments coming up. Murder takes a rest or a few minutes. An alue-de-camp dashes up and in quireg for the officer in command. He rides down the line to the colonel. Our regiment is all alone here, and less than "00 men in the saddle. Away goes the aide, and as the colonel turns in the saddle to look over the men we can all see that he wears a pale face."" What was the order ! It was for that lone regiment to swing around the corner of the woods and hurl itself a...

Venerable but Good One of the ilrollest scenes of vituper ation that O'Connell ever figured iu took place in the early part of his life. *Not long after he was called to the bar, Ins character and peculiar talents re ceived recognition l'roui all who were casually acquainted with hiiu. Ilis tal fcnt for vitnpeiative language was per ceived, and by sor s he was, even in those days, considf td matchless as a scold. There rvas, how cer, at this time in Dublin a certain \ aman, Biddy Molar ity, who had a huckster's stall in one of the quays nearly opposite the Four Courts. * She was a virago of the first order, very able with her fist and still more formidable with her tongue. From one end of Dublin to the other she was notorious for her powers of abuse, and even in the provinces Sirs. Moriarity's language had passed into currency. The dictionary of Dublin slang had been considerably enlarged by her, and lier ; voluble impudence had almost become I proverbial. Some of O'Connell's friend...

A Base Deception. Nothing but our unshakable determi nation to expose fraud in important places induces us to forego our native gallantry sufficiently to relate the par ticulars of the following gloomy catas trophe : It seems that, not content with fraudulent appeals to the sympathies of mankind by means ot "palpitators" and false calves, the ladies have recently in troduced a still more insidious delusion —viz., what are known to mo listes as patent indiarubber inflatable hips. A young lady—who was doubtless driven to this artificial reliance by stern neces sity, however—recently attended a large dinner party on Yin Ness Avenue. Atwr the meal the company retired to the library, and the young lady was handed to a seat by the host. Nf>w, in this very chair a small boy of the family had placed a bent pin in readiness for bis French tutor. When the young lady sat down a sound ensued, which caused every person in the room to blush witli embarrassment. The victim her self remained par...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 29, ISSO. The shipments of meat on ice to England are greatly reduced this year compared with bust year's shipments as ice is scarcer, and the ocean steam ers have taken out their refrigerators in part to give room for emigrant travel.
