VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. No Fun in Being a Princess. The position of the Princess of Wales is too exalted a one to permit of much j social enjoyment, yet has not the splen did potentialities of reigning royalty. ! The Princess, too, is peculiarly unosten- 1 tatious, and evidently tinds the magnifi cent loneliness of her position an actual! trial. To he young and beautiful, and I idolized, and yet to be shut out from most forms of social amusement, can be by no moans delightful. Yet theie are, of course, very few houses, even among j those of the highest"nobility, to which the Princess of Wales can go as an in vited guest. And when she does go, an | awful state hedges her around. She is passionately fond of dancing, yet no gentleman can ask her to dance. She it is who signals out the personage whom i she desires as a partner, and. when she i .stands up to dance, all other dancers inust sit down. After ci...

The Deacon and the Cow. One of those incidents that en use a I pious man to damn the whole animal 1 creation occurred at Janesville last week. ( A business man whom we all kno*v got j up last Tuesday and took a walk down by Monterey, to view the beaut'es of nature and get up an appetite for break fast. He is a man who weighs close to j one hundred svul fifty pounds, though j he is as kitteny as anybody when vcca- j sion calls for kittenishness. Gazing in- | to the crystal waters fcf Rock river, it occurred to him that he would take a 1 bath, and, so he dis -obed himself, laid his clothes on the ground, and plunged in. He had been sporting with the wavelets and waving with the sportlets for some minutes, when lie heard a bel lowing on shore, and looked up to see a cow pawing the ground and running her horns through his clothes. You know how the smell of blood or carrion will ; cause the mildest-mannered cow to get [ on her ear and paw the ground and bel low. Not that there was any bl...

One of the host evidences that the census of South Carolina is fraudulent is found in the discrepancy between re- 1 turns of pomilat ion and returns of prop erty. Wliil it is claimed thsvt the popu- j lntion of tlic state lias increased forty threp percent, in ten years, there has been a decrease of wealth almost as remarkable as the increase of popula tion. Since 1870 the value of land is reported to have decreased by more than 523,(M)0,000, and the reported liumbei of buildings is less by '2,(ill) than ten years ago. These figures as to property are confirmed by a recent official report of the auditor of the state, which report also shows that the whole taxable value of property in the state is less by S4t),oon,o<to than three years since. Not only do tlie returns show a diminished number of houses, but they show also that the number of domestic animals and various forms of personal property have largely de creased. Of course it is impossible that the state sl»uld have increase...

The New Waltz. At Long Branch, this season, it is said that some of the waltzing is of the new kind, in which the dancers slide tlnec times one way as fast and as far as their legs will let them, and then three times the opposite way. A couple divided against itself cannot stand that sort of capering. The partners must slide, sway and whirl exactly in unison, or trouble comes. Take one recent in stance for an illustration. The young gentleman was brawny ami demonstra tive. He was up in the new waltz and eager for it. The young ladv was tall, stately and sedate. She could not waltz the new way, and deemed it an improp erly agilo and athletic diversion. The old style was plenty lively enough for her. But there was no such under standing between the two when they stood up together to dance. The new waltz begins without premonition, scoot ing otl suddenly sidewise, like a tre mendously accelerated crab. Such was the initial movement of this your.g gentleman. Encircling the lady firmly w...

Escaping steam caused most of the in juries. Some person's blunder was the cause of the accident. It is a noticeable fact that but one mem Iter of t lie last legislature has been re-nominated iu the whole Terri tory, and he a Seattle man.
