Vancouver Independent. Official Papfi or Citt and Coostt. Vancouver. Clark* County. Washington Territory. Farmer tiar field. General Garfield finds much rest and recreation in attending to the details of work on his fium. Calling on him yes terday, I found him tramping about his fields in a rough suit of cassiinere, his pantaloons tucked into his boots and a slouch hat, ornamented with hayseed, protecting his head. While the General was inspecting his winter wheat, and ob serving the condition of his cattle, Mrs. Garfield was standing iu the back door of the house/ giving directions to the "bands" about the shipment of a dozen barrels of cider which she was sending away to market. The scene led me to make some inquiries in regard to Gen. Garfield's farm and farming, and the facts elicited may be interesting to many readers. The farm contains one hundred and fifty-five acres, all under cultivation, ex cept a few acres of timber. It lies twenty-five miles east of Cleveland, front ing ...

WHAT MRS IRWI3 WAS THANKFUL FOR. BY MARY GRACE HALPINE. Richard Irwin toiled slowly and very wearily up the two flights of stairs which led to the poor abode, whoise scanty furniture had grown still more scanty as want and poverty pressed more and more hardly upon him. But poor as it was, everything was as neat as his pretty wife Mary's busy hand could make it, who turned upon him the same brave, cheerful smile with which she always welcomed him, though her heart sanlc as she saw the gloom which shrouded his face. "It's of no use, Mary," he said sinking down into a chair. "I've walked the streets nil the morning, and there is no work to be had; men are discharging their old hands insteud of taking new. I've had no work for three months now, with the exception of an odd job or so. Winter is coming on; all my hardly earned savings are gone; and what is to become of us is more than I know." "It is always darkest before the duwn, Richard." "That's what you have been saying for a long ti...

VANCOUVER IXDEPEN DENT. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1881. Dr. J. C. Hawthorne, who has been in charge of the Oregon Insane Asylum for many years at East Portland, "died in that place on Tuesday, from appo plexy. He has long been a promi nent citizen, much respected by the people. From the eastern and southern states conic continuous accounts of great floods nml storms, and in the western states the country seems all snowed in. The weather is bad here, but we are not so badly off as our east ern friends after all. Portland has an excitement in the way of the failure of the oiliest Chi nese firm of merchants doing business in that city, Coung Ye Loung & Co. The failure of any Chinese firm is a rare occurrence; and in tHis ease some little game has been played, it is sus pected. The Olympia Courier says Mr. Mc- Pherson, of the colony here, in com pany with live others of said colony, has returned from a trip of explora tion of the country up and beyond the Nootsack, in Whatcom county, a...

The Great Disti'rbtng Force of the British Market.—Now that American products have found a per manent place side by side with home produce in our food supply, western competition can no longer be regarded with the indtterence, real or assumed, that for a long time was affected by English monopolies. Capital as well as labor is moving to the promised land in the west. American produc tions, vast as they are, represent noth ing as compared with her resources. Her fertile north-western Territories have yet to influence the world's mar kets. "The development of the great Red River Valley, Upper Minnesota and Dakota, is now only in its initial stage. Eastern Oregon and Washing ton Territory is a region of surprising fertility, and of very great extent.'' wrote Mr. Williamson, M. P., recently in an important letter to the Time'*. The X. P. R. R., which has already ac quired, as the result of construction of road, many million aeres, otters for sale farming lands in the parts of Min nesota...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory.

The Epoch of Travel. Each age of history has its distinct ive characteristics; sometimes more marked and manifest, sometimes less so. Our own epoch is no exception in that regard. Indeed, one might not go far wrong if ho were to say that, if exceptional at all, it is for the number and piquancy of its salient traits. When we hare said that it is in the age of steam, the ago of telegraphs, the age of invention, the age of the news paper and the novel, the ago of free thought and fri e speech, abused often to the extreme of license, tho age of the politician and tho defaulter, we have surely catalogued special features enough to malto it notable in history. But one, at least, may bo added; our age is, pre-eminently the age of /rural. Has the reader ever thought what ai restless race, in this respect, the race ; of man has become? When Captain j Cook made his voyage aroutul the world, just about 0110 hundred years ago, it was a miracle. Wo seem to bo near tho time when a man will be re...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, FKBRUARY 24, ISBI. —-——— ———-——— In another column we publish an article from the Oregonian giving the present railroad situation on this north-west coast, in which is shown the virtual consolidation of the X. 1\ I R. It. with the O. R. & X. Co.'s lines. The significance of this announcenient ; lies in tlie fact that by this movement ! Portland gains virtual control of all this coast in transportation and com mercial enterprise. "Whether the! country shall have cause to regret it will be told in time, and the uses Port land men make of their opportunities. The matter to be regretted now is, that the Xorthern Pacific, an enterprise supposed to belong to this Territory more than any other sectioiv, now comes wholly within the control of Oregon men, and will undoubtedly be used against the interests of Washing ton Territory. The United States Senate on Mon day received from the secretary of war in lesponse to Slater's resolution, a : copy of the rep...

Dead Letters. Mr. Carleton Hughes lectured in Washington recently, on the "Mysteries of the Dead-letter office." Mr. Hughes was for some time a clerk in the dead letter office and relates somo interest ing experiences connected with the de livery of dead letters. About 10,000 are opened daily, und the money con tained in theso amouuts to about $81,- 000 a month. An interesting case was where a gentleman traveling on busi ness sent a letter containing $1,500 to his wife at home. By some unaccount able neglect he sealed the envelope and deposited it in tho mail without any address whatever. After the letter was opened at the dead-letter office we found that he had written but a few lines announcing his determination to go further South, not mentioning any probable destination, and signiug the name ' George." There was no clue to trace the wife, and but a slight one to find the writer. After a long search "George ' was discovered on the hotel register, the only person out of thirty two...

Ilnrivlliwil Beds. A terrible doublo murder was com mitted on the Skagit river, among the Indians, some two weeks since. It appears that two Indians, named Sam and Bill, had a dispute over some triv ial matter, which resulted in a right. A few da\ s after they met. again, and >iaeh took his gun with which to de fend himself. llill went into his house and laid down on his bed. Sam slipped up and shot him dead through a (.Tack in the door. The murdered man's father felt very much aggrieved, and taking his gun he .went out and killed Alice, a six teen-year-old daugh ter of Sam. Tins, according to Indian law, made matters ail right—a life for a life. No legal stcps'have been taken iu the matter. There is now enough iron at the front and 'n the Dalies awaiting shipment,* to complete, the gap between the two ends of the track between that place and Walla Walla,, and as • 10u as weather will permit, work will be pushed with renewed vigor.

DO YOU REMEMBER? ''IS BA4 IO f*ATO FON K MAI PERM?TO." Because we once drove together In the moonlight oyer the snow. With the sharp bells ringing their tinkling chime, So many a year ago. So, now, as I hear them jingle. The winter comes back again. Though summer stirs in the heavy trees. Ami the wild rose scents the lane. We gather our furs around us, Our faces the keen air stings, And noiselessly we fly o'er the snow-hushed world Almost as if we had wines. Enough is the joy of mere living, Enough is the blood's quick thrill; We are simply happy—l care not why— ' We are happy beyond our will. The tr*es are with icicles jeweled. The walls are o'er-surfed with snow; The houses with marble whiteness are roofe 1, In their windows the home-lights glow. Through the tense, clear sky above us The keen stars Hash and gleam, And wrapped in their silent shroud of &now, The broad fields lie and dream. And jingling with low, sweet clashing, Ring the bells as our good horse goes, And tossing...

Shelling Ponies. The j)ony of the Shetland isles is. in fact, the offspring of circumstances. Ho is tho pet of the family, gentle as the Arab's steed under similar training. He will follow his friends indoors, liko a dog, and lick the platters or the chil dren's faces. He has no more kick in him than a oat, and no more bite than a puppy. He is a noble example of the complete suppression of these vicious propensities that some of his kind ex hibit when they are ill-treated, and of the intelligence and good temper that may be developed in horses by kindness. There is no precedent for his running away, nor for his Incoming frightened or tired, even when ho has carried some stout laird from Lerwick to his house, many Scotch miles across the hills. Ho moves down tho rugged hillside with admirable circumspection, loaded pan nier fashion with two heavy "cassies" of peat, picking his way step by step, sometimes sideways. In crossing boggy spots, where tho water is retained and a green carpe...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1881. We confess that we felt very hadly wheu we read in the Oregonian the assertion that Mr. Henry Villard had succeeded in capturing a controling interest in the Northern Pacific Rail road. Nor were we alone to feel bad about it. Every body outside of Port land and the owuers and managers of the O. R. & N. Co. must have felt as we did. We asked ourselves whether this result was to be theouteome of the princely gift of the public domain by the nation to the Northern Pacific; whether the vast grant of public lands to this company, designed to afford fa cilities to commerce, to develop the wonderful resources of the coast, was to be converted into an engine for making its agricultural, industrial, mining and commercial interests mere branches of revenue to swell the gains of a monopoly; whether, in fact, the gift made for the benefit of the people was to be used as a means for the per ple's oppression. That the O. R. &N. Co. has been ...
