The Paris banking firm of Rothschild Brothers expired by limitation on the last day of September. It was recon structed on the same day for twenty-five years. Its capital is fixed at 50,000,000 francs ($10,000,000), contributed equally by the three partners, Mayer Alplionse James de Rothschild, No. 2 Rue Saint Florentm; Gustavo Samuel James de Rothschild. No. 23 Avenue Marigliy, and Edward James de Rothschild, No. 23 Rue Lafitte. The Rothschilds, wlieu they received their patent of nobility, adopted as their device the words "Industria, integri tate, et labore." More than three-quar ters of a century have elapsed since they assumed this motto, and they have al ways acted up to it. Each member of the' house not only works for the com mon good, but is remarkable for his per sonal merits. The head of the French branch of the family is Baron Alphouse de Roth...

IN TBE FIRELIGHT. "Are you listening, Donald?" asked his sister. "Yes." "Do you call that listening, with the back of your head to me?" "As long as it gets through me, does it make any difference whether it goes through the back or the front of my head?" "I wish you would not talk slang. Jack detests it!" and an impatient hand rustled the sheet of letter paper. "Humph! He does? What a fraud he is!" came a cool retort from the fire place, in front of which was drawn an arm-chair, over the top of which could be seen a dark, motionless head, as if the eves were fixed upon the grate. " "At least, you might be polite!" "I will be Chesterfield's ghost, if you will only get on." An impatient rap of five fingers on the open letter, then the reader bogan, in a half provoked voice: " 'My Dear Little Woman:—l have reached my journey's end, and it will be my last, I can assure you. If it had not been for tue interest at stake, I would have cut and run at once. I never was so homesick in my life...

A Ghost Story. The locale is the old Foglesang road, which leads north from this city out past the Fair Grounds, and the legendary Mt. Pleasant; out past the old Van Pearse homestead, up the rocky hill and through the oak woods, by the Still- House Hollow, and out through the beautiful reaches of woodland and mea dow beyond. The time was, more than a half a century since, when Lancaster was a backwoods hamlet with a howling wilderness all round about. Then the Foglesang road was hardly more than a bridle-path, and the rocky 1 ill next to impassable on account of its sharp and angular projections, its offsets, deep furrows, crevices, and irregularities, and the sturdy old farmers who lived up in that section invariably made the trip on horseback. The Still-House Hollow was a deep, dark, heavily-timbered, forbid ding ravine, at the li*ad of which, well hidden in the rocks.and exuberant vege tation, was an old log still, owned and run by a mysterious specimen of antiquated humanity nam...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 21. 1881. The steamer Oceanic, which arrived from Hongkong in San Francisco Sun day, is quarantined. Site has ten cases of small-pox on board among the Chinese steerage passengers. The mails were fumigated and brought on shore. News from the very ancient city of Bagdad in Asia, says that the ravages of the plague are terrible, though not extending beyond the sanitary cor don. Four thousand inhabitants have quitted Xedjed and camped in salubri ous localities. Xedjed and Djuhara were bi'rned on the Bth inst. The dis ease has become violent, those af flicted dying in ten hours after being attacked. In a trial just had at New Tacoma, Judge Greene decided that a note stip ulating for the payment of compound interest in the case of default could not be enforced so far as interest on inter est was concerned. It is only in cases where the promise to pay compound interest is made after the interest has accrued and when there is a sufficient consideratio...

Vancouver Independent. Official Path or City akd Cochtt. Vancouver, Clark* County, Washington Territory. First Trousers. The strongest desire of the boy is to become a man. Now, the first evidence of manhood, the first serious step made in life, is the wearing of trousers. The first pair of trousers is an event desired by the father and dreaded by the mother. "To the mother, it is the begin ning of the end. She looks with moist eyes at the little petticoat forever aban doned, and says to herself: "I have lost my baby; my reign has ended; and, alas! how soon. He will have new tastes, new desires; he is no more mine, his individ uality asserts itself, he is somebody, he is a boy." The father, on the contrary, is charm ed. He laughs in his sleeve as he looks at the slender calves which emerge from the trousers. He feels the little boy so clearly outlined under the new garments, and savs to himself: "How well he is formed, the jolly little dog—he will have my broad shoulders and sturdy ...

NICHOLAS VOSS NO COWARD. BY J. A. E. A group of young meu were standing one morning last April on the banks of the river Aar, which flows by the quaint old Swiss town of Berne. There was Johann Leid, the baker's son, and Fritz Bund, the wood carver, and half-a-dozen others with their sisters and swcot hearts Bund, as usual, was loud-monthod and voluble. He talked with one eye on the girls to see the effect. "What do you say to a race, boys? There is Johann Leid with his big mus cles. I can outrun or throw you in five minutes, Leid." Leid nodded, threw off his coat, and was beaten in both race and wrest' '. Ho was a big, sheepish-looking follow, and grew red with anger. "If yon want to look woll in Jean notto's eyes," he muttered, "it is Nichol as Vobs you should throw, not mo. Sho thinks more of his finger than of your whole braggart body." Bund was enraged. Everybody saw that plainly. Ho looked at Jeannette, standing with the other girls, like a modest little rose among flaunt ng d...

Nearly ten thousand European em igrants arrived in New York city last week. The greater portion of them are German, many of whom are going south. The Memphis Appeal says: "If 5,000,000 of Germans could lie dis tributed through tiie south ti»e advan tages arising would be incalculable." There appears to be a lively demand for them now in fields and workshops. The New York Sun says: ''This prom ises to be the greatest year for immi gration we have ever known. Arri vals for the first quarter are far ahead of those for the corresponding period of 1880, and yet the season when im migration is most active is only just approaching. Indications are that tne number landed at Castle Garden for the whole year will equal half a million. In Germany there never be fore has been so ardent and widespread a desire for emigration as now, and extra steamers have all their accom modations engaged far ahead. Saturday afternoon at the railroad camp on the line of the Denver & Rio Grande, forty miles ...

Vancouver Independent. Official Pafm of Citt add Cocktt. Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Territory. Our Presidents. As the nation has recently witnessed another presidential inauguration, the inquiry may be suggested—to whom are we indebted for such a title? We now have presidents of railways, banks, in surance companies and similar institu tions, and, by a comparison with foreign lands, wo learn that the term is pecu liarly American. The chief officer of the 6ank of England is called a "gover nor," and the ruler of a British college is called "principal" or "dean of faculty." President, on the other hand, is an Amer ican term. If the question be, there fore, asked who designated this term for our chief magistrate, the reply would be Benjamin Franklin, whose mind was al ways adequate to an emergency. Twenty five years before the Declaration of In dependence Franklin proposed a colonial convention at Albany for the purpose of consolidating Americau interests under the British Ha...

MT ESCAPADE. BY MARY KYLE DALLAS. It is now many years since I, Miss Helen Cranstoun, performed the one ec centric act of my life. I was old enough by that time to have grown prim and "governessy," and years spent in preach ing propriety to young ladies had had their effect upon me, and I knew that it would never do in my position to be spoken of as peculiar. And yet—But you shall hear. I had at that time an engagement in Mrs. Harding's family to finish the education of an only daughter. The house was a large double building, and the study or school-room, was in a wing across the hall. Next it was a handsome, well-furnished apartment which had been given to me as a bed room. It was removed from all the other bedrooms of the house, and at night I was entirely alone. However, I had no fears of the supernaturul, and no terrors of any sort, and the room suited me. On this night I had retired, as nsnal, and the whole house slumbered, myself included, when I was aroused by some thing—l ha...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 1881. It is not very often that we allude to the weather, but as this subject is always in order, and we have seen so many dispatches from various parts of the country and especially from Wis consin, lowa and Minnesota, where they have had lots of it, we believe that the weather is still a fashionable topic, and that extended allusion to it will not be considered out of place for the information of our readers both in the west and the east. The people on this coast are still greatly interested in the weather, and we naturally pre sume that it is the same in other parts of the country. To begin with, ween ter upon the subject of tlie weather with due humility, feeling how very inferior this coast is to the sections of the country named above where they get so much more weather than we do. There the snow has been from four to six feet deep on the level, and it is stated that about twelve feet fell dur ing the whole winter, whereas here we did...

BRIEF MENTION. Great quantities of drift-wood are coming down the river. Tuesday has been set down as the boss wet day of April. Lewis river is rising rapidly under the in fluence of the rains. The crops in the Lewis river district are reported as looking fine. The Water Company is extending the ■treet main west on lltli street. Tom Thornton arrived down from the Dalles yesterday, brown, fat and hearty. Dr. A. Dobbins sailed for San Francisco on Saturday, 011 his way back to Kansas. There are the usual number of people who predict unusually high water next month. Farmers on the bottoms are beginning to fear drowning out of crops again this season. The roads in the green timber are not to be recommended for smoothness or easy traveling. Base ball has entirely subsided in this city, and the national game seems to have lost all its charms. The Fire Dept. election takes place next Monday, commencing at 5 o'clock P. M., at the City hall. Prof. J. P. Fcaster has returned to Port land, whe...

HAPPINESS. Avo\ith sat on a sofa wide Within a jiarlor dim: The maid who lingered by his side Was all the world to him. What brought that glad light to his eye, Thai cadence to his tone? Why burns the lamp of love so hich, Through midnight's hour hath llown? The clock above the "lowing grate Has stopped at hslf-past ten And. long as that young man may wait, It will not strike again. The artful maiden knows full well What makes the clock act so, And whv no earthly power can tell The time for him to go. Although the doep-toned village chime 3 Have long ago struck two, And sundry cocks at divers times Are making much ado. But Time stands still, with gracious mien, Nor seems to think it meet That cruel Fate should intervene To break their vigil sweit Too soon the streaks of opening day Light up the Eastern sky, As tenderly ho steals away, And whispers,"Love, good-by! The ancients sought for earthly bless On sacred mountain tops; But the secret of true happiness Lies in a clock that—stop...

A Waste of Words. A reporter of a San Francisco morn ing journal is responsible for the follow ing: He was walking up Jackson street one aftemood when he noticed a white man fitting in a Chinese barber-chair, while a Celestial artist bent over him. The spectacle was so unusual that the re porter stopped to look curiously at it, and soon found himself one of a group similarly engaged. The shop was a hole in the wall with the door open, and every uncomplimentary remark of tlie crowd could be plainly heard within. Neither the barber nor his patron paid any attention, however, to the conversa tion, and did not even acknowledge the pungent quality of the sarcasm and sec tional scorn even by a smile. This did not seem on the part of the Chinese bar ber particularly strange, but on the part of the white oustomer it was incompre hensible, as the allusions to him were too pointed to be ignored. As the barber removed the wot cloth from the top of his head, and lie straightened himself up in t...

The losses of cattle in Nebraska dur ing the winter just past were enor mous. At the "pi."iin;;of winter there were estimated to he half a million head upon the Nebraska ranches, worth an average of Sl.i per head, or $.7,500,000 in all. Usually the losses in winter from snow and cold weather are 5 per cent., hut the unprecedented cold and snowfall of the past winter brought up the percentage to fully one half, in some cases probably three fourths, so that tile loss in Nebraska alone in cattle is expected to reach nearly if not quite 53,000,000. A leading firm in East Portland bor rowed a ratter, a few days ago, and shut him up in the warehouse, hoping to get rid of a trouhlesowie mouse. Af ter a time they went to see how the war progressed, and were fully satis tied that the dog hail lost no time. He had treed the mouse in a stack of flour; and in digging for him, had de stroyed eighteen tifty-pound sacks of flour. They now think they will let that mouse alone. The wool crop of Oreg...
