BALLADE OF WORLDLY WEALTH. Money taketh town ami wall, Fort ami camp without a blow; Money moves tho merchants' all, While the tides shall ebb and flow; Money maketh evil show Like the good, and truth like lies; Th"se alone can ne'er bestow Youth and health and Paradise. Money makotli festival, Wine she buys and beds can strow; Bound the necks of captains tall, Money wins them chains to throw, Marches soldiers to and tro, Gaineth ladies with sweet eyes ; These alone can ne er bestow Youth and health and Paradise. Money wins the priest his stall; Monev* mitres buy. I trow, Red hats for the cardinal, Abbeys for the novice low; Money maketh sin as snow, Platv of penitence supplies; These alone can ne'er bestow Youth and health and Paradise. Woman's Sentimental Symbolism. One of the grievous defects inces santly found by woman in man is his indifference tn emotional associations with material objects. He seems to ber very stolid, well nigh barbarous in this ( respect, and naturally enou...

The Laborer. So yon see that in the great cities of the great world there is an average of About one man in ten obeying that great primal command, that by tho sweat of your brow you shall eat your bread. But how this one man has to work! Staml by and see him in the dirt and muck, or see him passing wearily on the pavement, He is in rags. He is tilth. His face is dirty. His hands are dirty. His lioaft must 1m» hard. His face is haggard and brutal. He does not lift his eyes. He works doggedly on. This man has not had enough to eat. That littlo tin bucket held his dinner. His dinner, mark you, my Lord Mayor, ladies fud gentlemen, who would be inisserable at missing a hot plate of soup, hot fish, hot meat, warm delicacies and wine at your din ners! And yet you have not one of you done a stroke of real work in all your worthless lives. This laborer, look at him again! Ho is a brute. You have made him a brute. You keep him a brute. His children will be brutes. Sometimes he lifts his eyes ...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, DECEMBKK 0, 1880. On Friday last the mill company's store at Port Gamble was destroyed by fire, causing a loss of about $80,000 to the company. The amount of in surance is unknown. The Oregonian was thirty years old Tuesday, which is a respectable old age for a newspaper on this coast. May we all be here to see it still tlie largest and best paper on the coast when it it is fifty years old. Congress assembled on Monday, and President Hayes delivered liis inaugu ral address, whichisquitelengthy. In it he makes special recommendations for the improvement of the Columbia river. This is one good result from the visit of the Presidential party to the coast last fall. The work of building a T-rail mill at Fargo, Dakota, by the X. P. It. It. Co., was commenced on the 10th. The building, 40x50 feet, will be furnished with a 40-horse power engine and ma chinery complete for sawing and slot ting T-rails, punching holes etc., and doing all kinds of rail work. E...

"Ministers' sons are apt to turn out badly," said I to tbo gentleman who sat nest to me in the car. Wn had met in the train, bound for Chicago, and had struck up an acquaintance. He stopped me with his hand on my arm, and with an earnest look I slmll never forget. I paused at once in what I was saying, and it seemed for a moment as if the rushing train had stopped to listen too. "Let mo tell you a story," ha said. "I know it is a oommoa belief that minis ters' sons are wild, but that is because people talk about the bad ones, while those who turn out well are taken as a matter of course. I gathered statistics about them once, and I found that out of one thousand sons of ministers there were few who did not grow up useful and industrious men." "But what is your story?" I asked, set tling back in my seat. ■Well," said ho, "it begins w.th a class supper i...

Mow Chickens Gkt Out ok Shki.ljS.- Take an egg out of a nest on which :i lu ii has had her full time, carefully holding ii to the ear; turning it roumi, you will find the exact spot j which the little fellow is picking on the inside of the shell; this he will do until the inside shell is perforated, and then the shell is forced outward as a small scale, leaving a hole. Now, if you will take one of the eggs in this condition from under the hen, remove it to the house or other suitable place, put it in a box or nest, keeping itjwai in and moist, as near the temperature of the hen as possible, (which may he done by laying it between two bottles of warm water upon some cotton or wool), and lay a glass over the box or nest, then you can sit or stand, as is most convenient, and witness the true modus operandi. Now watch the lit tle fellow work his way into the world, and you will be amusedand instructed as I have often been. After he has got his opening, he commences a nib bling motion wi...

Unmerited honors never wear well. The habit of being always employed is a great safeguard through life, as well aa an essential to the culture of every ▼irtue. Edmund Yates says that genuine hate red is almost as rare in English polities tas gratitude. But it isn't so rare in our politics. No matter how ill-tempered or resent ful the ship may be on her voyage, said old Captain Crosstree, "she always drops her rancor when she comes into port.'* Some Indians me scalping knives of tortoise shell, probably on account of the old fable iu which the tortoise was alleged to have got away with the hare. "What a blessing it is," said a hard working Irishman, "that night niver comes on till late iu the duy, whin a man is tired and can't work any at all at all.

THURSDAY, DEC ISM BKR 16. 1880. Pensacola, Florida, had a tire on Fri day night which burned down all the business portion of the town, causing over a million dollars loss. Several lives were lost also. An American lawyer is now attor ney-general of the Sandwich islands. The Philadelphia Chronicle remarks that if in two years he doesn't own the entire country and hold the King's note for a large sum, he is no credit to the American bar. America has a bin coal mine acci dent now and then where from one to forty lives are lost, but the English still maintain their superiority in this respect. An explosion occurred in a coal mine in Wales last week by which over one hundred miners were killed. Some one is after the scalp of Hon. N. H. Owings, Secretary of the Terri tory. His term expires on the oth of February next, and already remon strances against his re-appointment are in circulation. Owings has made a good officer, so far as we know, and we should be pleased to see him re tained. ...

"From what?" said tho young man re ?ently arrived from a far interior State, tnd to whom a vessel of any sort was a mystery, and a wonder. "From stem to stern," said the editor, fixing a suspicious and threatening eye upon him, "and tell how many feet of water she draws, her breadth of beam, her tonnage and all that sort of thing." This was the young mail's first mission. He was eager to distinguish himself. He had already done so ou his village paper in a series of essays on "The Cesmogyny of the University." But that little town was a thousand miles away. He wanted a wider field for his aspirations, and had come to New York. Yet he went out of the office anxious and doubting. "I wil...

A LITTLE WISE TVOMATV. Louis Clare liad gone out for u walk quita oirly in the morning, and as it was Saturday , she had linger.'d over her en joyment of the beautiful day, the fresh, sweet air, and the cool breeze from the sea. Louisa was a seliool teacher, and I am quite sure not one of the noisy, wild creatures whom s he sought to guide in the paths of knowledge, enjoyed the weekly holiday as she did. But even Saturday was not all holiday —she had brought home exercisos to cor rect, and copy-books to look over; and she began to reflect that she could not afford to stay out much longer, even on holiday morning. She had sat down to rest for her long walk had tired her -on a seat formed by an old tree-trunk that had lain long enough t > be all green and moss-covered, and only a little way in front of her the sea washed up against tho rough, shingly beach.

He was elected to the 36th Congress as a democrat, serving from Dec. 5, ls">9, to Jan. 21, 1861, when lie retired from the House, his State having seceded from the union. He was a member of the house in the first and second Confederate con gresses, serving from Feb. 1862, until the surrender. Advices from Honolula describe the eruption of Mauna Loa, now in prog ress, as one of the grandest ever wit nessed. It broke out Nov. sth throw ing out two great streams of lava, one of which is 30 miles long, 100 to 200 yards wide, and about 20 feet deep. Terrible explosions accompanying its flow.

Repentance. A man who as an overseer before the war hail driven the darkeys with n whoop came to the city yesterday. After taking two or three drinks, and foeling that pe culiar muscular growth so well known to men who stand around in spiritual seance," the overseer went out on the street with the swagger of a man noted for voting whole neighborhoods. An old blind man came walking along. The overseer looked haughtily to one side and stopped. The old man ran against him. "You old villain," exclaimed the over seer, hooking a hand in the old man's collar, "haven't you got more sense than to run over a white man?" "Marster, for de Lord, I hopes you 'skuse me." "Ah, yes, you old rattlesnake; you thought that I would be afraid to tauklo you, eh?" "Marster, 'fore the lord, you uius' 'skuse me fur de ole man hain't seed a wink since loug afore freedom."

In the last two weeks 359 cases of the former, and 330 casesof the latter were reported to the board of health. a fire occurred in a wall-paper fac tory in Buffalo last week, by which 15 persons lost theirlives. Many persons were badly injured, and others killed, by jumping from 4th and sth story windows, while some perished in the flames. Several socialists expelled from Ger many have landed at New York..
