Vancouver Independent. Official. Papb& of City and Cochtt. Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Territory. AS OLD GAMBLER. A deep fall of snow lias covered tlie pavement, tL ■' storui continued, and the i heavy flakes drifting into one's face ren dered pedestrianism somewhat unpleas- j ant, and finding tlio way in the capital of I Belgium a matter of no small difficulty. It was 8 o'clock in the evening, and I was coming out of the Faubourg de Cologne on my way to the Place do la Monnaio on urgent business, not, however, so urgent I as to prevent my going into the iir-t ci-1 gar store of the Rue Neuve and buy one j of those londres which are the iast re source of a foreigner in Brussels, and f> bad one to boot. I had hardly got into the street again when an old man, who hail been standing in the store, rushed toward me with his arms extended, and cried out, with a very pronounced Italian accent : "Ah, my dear friend, here you are! Your are my Providence —my savior." "Who are v...

Tbe Canal Sclictiict is PuiFo.l nl fnrlii. Evidence accumulates that the pro jectors of the Panama canal scheme are blowing an enormous bubble in Paris by means of newspaper puffery and grossly exaggerated accounts of the profits to accrue from shares. Some of these accounts are so gor geously over-colored that it is strange they do not excite suspicion in the French mind, which is usually shrewd enough in money matters. The esti mates of amount of tolls is based 011 a tonnage rate, which would tax Cali fornia wheat 2:! cents per bushel. It is safe to say no wheat will ever pay such tribute to DeLesseps' company. The Paris correspondent of the New York Tribune ridicules Re Lesseps' means of raising the wind by his isth mus canal operation. The real pur- j pose, the true inwardness of the j scheme, lies in the 19th article of the ' contract of the association consolidat- j ing the company. This states that 10 per cent, of the shares are to form a priviliged class of shares of stock f...

THE MYSTERY OF DEATH. BY EDWIN ARNOLD, "She is dead!" they said to him; "Come away! Kiss her and leave'her—thy love is clay!" They smoothed her tresses of dnrk brown hair: On her forehead of stone they laid it fair; Over her eves that gazed too much They drew" the lids with a gentle touch; With a tender touch they closed up well The sweet thin lips that had secrets to tell; About her brows and beautiful lace They tied her vail and marriage lace. And drew on her white feet her white silk shoes— Which were the whitest no eyes could choose— And over her bosom Ihev crossed her hands. "Come away!" tliey said; "God understands." And there was silence, and nothing there But silence, and scents of eglauterc, And jasmine and roses, and rosemary; And they said: "Asa lady should lie, lies she." And they held their breath as they left the room, With a shudder to glance at its stillness and gloom. But ue who loved her too well to dread The sweet, the stately, the beautiful dead, lie lit his lamp...

A Pre-Hlstorlc City. Colonel Stephenson, of the United States Geological Survey, has returned to this city after a very eventful trip in the light of its results, which were noth ing less than the discovery of tho re mains of a great city of the cave or cliff dwellers. The section of the United States Geo logical Survey, of which Colonel James Stephenson was in charge, left this city last August for explorations in Northern Ncm. Mexico. They went by rail to Santa Fo, and there procured mules and wagons for continuing tho journey to their field of labor. They made some examinations at Taos, and proceeded thence to the Indian town of Santa Clara, on tho west bank of tho Rio Grande. While at Santu Clara Colonel Stephenson first heard of some ancient and abandoned cliff caves siiuuted about twelve miles westward from Santn Fe. Procuring Indian guides the explorers started for the described locality. Tho ruius were found situated in the face of a series of cliffs between tho Rio Grande r...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1881. Philetus Sawyer, formerly ft repre sentative iu congress, has been elected U. 8. Senator from Wisconsin. In Tennessee on the 30th ballot, Howell E. Jackson, state credit democrat, was elected to the senate. Kwong Tai, the well known Port land Chinese merchant, states that the Northern Pacific and the O. R. & N. Co. will need during the coming summer 4000 Chinese laborers. Many will be brought from San Francisco. Last week a fire occurred at the Cas cade Locks, destroying the hotel, store, and butcher shop of Borthwiek & Co., and llindle's lodging house. The origin of the tire and the amount of loss sustained are not known yet. It is expected that the N. Pacific railroad will be running from Glen dive, where it strikes the Yellowstone (to which point the track is nearly laid), up the Y'ellowstone to Miles City next July, a distance of;7G9 miles. Passengers will be carried to the Y'el lowstone Park in July of the coming year. ...

BRIEF MENTION. The game law is now in force. Nearly three inches of rain fell on Monday night. No letters or mail from Walla Walla for over three weeks. Quite a ntimber of new buildings are being erected in the city. Pender and Hamilton have their large barn up and nearly enclosed. The Board of County Commissioners will meet on Monday next, the 7th inst. Mr. J. E. C. Durgin and Grant Short, of Washougal, were in town yesterday. The wind shook the scholars of the public school building out again last Friday. The boys had to content themselves with one day's skating at Vancouver this year. Mr. J. T. Bowles has entirely recovered from his severe accident of a few weeks ago. The heavy rains of this week make possi bilities of another flood in the Willamette. The mails have come and gone with a re freshing regularity sincc Monday morning. The boats made their usual trips up the river on Monday, for the first time in lOdays. The person who sent in a communication signed "A Total Abstainer...

Vancouver Independent. Official Papb« of City aj«d County. Vancouver. Clsrke County, Washington Territory. How I'nclc 'Dad Found It Out. Richard Gossett was making merry with peine friends under circumstances well fitted to put the party in the best of spir its. It's a jolly thing to be put down as sole legatee in a rich man's will—a jolly thing not only for the fortunate individ ual himself, lint for his friends, also, if they know how to play their cards prop erly. "By George, you're a lucky dog, Dick!" cried an enthusiastic youth across the ta ble. "Why haven't til of us got uncles like Medad' Whistler —nice old parties, who go oft' about their business, gain for tunes, and come back to leave them to their nephews, instead of hanging round home to"scold and find fault, and cutting you off in the end with their blessings and a lot of trumphery good advice?" "The drawback is," sighed Richard Gossett, "that uncles with fortunes to leave, as a class, are proverbially tough. There's U...

BEGUILED. Ho had never had any sisters and knew very little about women; but thought, foolish fellow, that he knew everything, and was invulnerable. His affianced, Lucy Lofton, quite a little t»ing that she was, knew better. They had been engaged just, a month when Mab Devereux came to Ito«ehome. "Don' L . you think Mab pretty, Allen ?" asked Lucy. "Not particularly," replied Mr. Allen Stopford. "She hasn't a good figure and she never blushes. I like to see a woman blush." Lucy laughed a little. She had long wished that she could cure herself of her foolish habit of blushing. It was amus ing to think that Allen liked it, aDd more amusing to think that he did not know Mab Devereux, witli her cool, cream-white face, her wonderful eyes and curled black lashes, was a littlo beauty, and invariably the belle of a company. But, like most men, his eyo caught first the beauty of fair, rosy girls, and he was not yet tired of Lucy's pink-and-snow complexion and ripples of golden hair. "Allen t...

\ tWN ITEMS. Gross earnings of fiS railroads increase - §35,000,000 for the year 1880. It is stated that uot more than half a dozen of the tire insurance companies doing business made anything last year. When the bells rang out the old year and rang in the new in Jutland, the jail doors swung upon their hinges, in accordance with the act of parliament, and every prisoner for debt walked out into the midnight air a free man. An immigration bill introduced in the South Carolina legislature, and likely to pass without opposition, proposes to exempt from state, county and municipal taxation for three years the real estate of every immi grant and the capital iuvested in improving it to an amount not exceeding §1500. lu Chicago one hundred commission mer chants have signed a pledge not to sell olo margarinc, butterine or any other villainous compound of that class, and do all in thell" i power to discountenance and prevent their 1 sale by others.

LOST TO SAVE. "What'B the matter, my boy?" The question was asked by Lawyer" Maythorpe, who lived in the large red brick house at the entrance of Silver weir Hiah Street, and who was reputed to be "as rich as a Jew." Certainly far richer than Sir Hugh Northall, whom all the town knew found it a very hard matter to make, as the term goes, both ends meet. At Silverweir, the Northall family had been known and respected; and though it was said, and truly, that Lawyer May thorpe could put down pounds to Sir Hugh's shillings, and beat him then, the reverence and respect went for Sir Hugh. Indeed, the man of law was considered to have been honored when, by aids and loans, he had extricated the Baronet from more than one pecuniary difficulty that had threatened the foreclosing of the heavy mortgages on the estate, and banishment of the Northalls therefrom. "And so he ought," ejaculated the Silverweir-ites, "for was it not Sir Hugh's father who took Lawyer May thorpe's father by the hand whe...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. |THUJRSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1881. The Indians of New Mexico are on the war-path, numerous small parties being out, engaged in murdering set tlers and miners and desolating ranches. There promises to be lively times for the entire season in that por tion of the country. The King of the Sandwich Islands arrived in San Francisco last week, but the people did not make half as much fuss over him as they did over the Euglish lord who married Sharon's daughter. His blood is so blue that it makes his skin too tawny. There is another cold wave taking possession east of the Rockies, great storms from Nebraska to Chicago, mercury down to 34° below zero at Jamestown. N. Y., and trouble all along the line. The peopleare getting tired of the Periheliou winter all over the continent, as it is exceptional in all sections.

Troup's wood at the dock is afloat, but well boomed, so that none has baen lost. Nearly a thousand railroad tics have been picked up at Vancouver, which came down on the flood. Lewis river has been very high recently, and now only the Hall bridge is regarded as safe to cross. Geo. Willi...

When the lessons and tusks are all ended, And the school for the day is dismissed, And the little ones gather around me To bid me "good night" and be kissed; Oh, the little white arms that encircle My neck in a tender embrace! Oh, the smiles that are hilos of Heaven, Shedding sunshine and lore on my face! And when they are gone I sit dreaming Of my childhood, too lovely to last; Of love that my heart will remember, When it wakes to the pulse of the past, Kre the world and its wickedness made me A partner of sorrow and sin, W hen the glory of God was about me, And the glory of gladness within. Oh, my heart grows weak as « woman's, And fountains of feeling will flow, When I think of the paths steep and stony Where the ieet of the dear ones must go; Of the mountains of sin lianging o'er them, Of the tempests...

BUTH PRIM'S BUDGET. Eben returned from his visit to Miss Barbery's with glittering eyes and flushed face. "What is it, Cousin Eber?" asked Mary. "O, Aunt Betsy was more glad to see me than you can think. When 1 rapped at her door she opened it herself. She stared at me a little minute, then she caught hold of my hand and pulled mo into the house. But look here, and see what she gave me before I can tell you about her." And the excited boy filled Mary's work-basket with pennies and silver coin from his two pockets, then added, "All these she gave me, and you ought to have seen the big bones she gave Ponto, and there was lots of meat on them, too. Speak, Ponto, and tell what else she gave you. He says, 'bread and butter.' Well, you can never think how glad she was to see me. She said Blie had been saving her pennies for me ever since she left our house, and so long as she lived she would never spend another one, but keep them all for me. She made me eat pie and cake until I felt sick....

Archibald Gibson, second lieutenant of the 7th U. S. cavalry, and son of a prominent lawyer, died of inflamma tion of the brain, caused by a singular event occurring while he was a West Point student. One day while on pa rade a spider got into his ear. The rules prohibited his removing it, and he stood in the ranks while the crea ture worked its way into the ear, and when he was dismissed the ear was full of blood. This caused corrosion of the bone next to the brain, and he has never been completely well since, al though having done hard service in Dakota. Mr. Fitzsimmons, marshal of Geor gia, is going to resign. He was ap pointed on the theory that the illicit distillers would submit with better grace to be arrested by a democrat than a republican. The theory did not work. The moonshiners blazed away at Fitzsimmons' deputies with out troubling themselves to inquire as to their politics. Mrs. Sarah Lee, widow of the late Rev. N.
