The Independent FRIDAY, FEBRUARY I*s, 1577. Practical Politics. Ideal theories of government are well enough to cherish, with reference to im proving on the system in rogue, but what the country needs more than any thiug else, is that practical cast of poli tics necessary to meet the exigencies of the times. The statesman of the most use in the country, is he who is able to take thiugs by the smooth haudle. He may have lofty ideals in politics; but with an appreciation of the evils which beset all human institutions, he is ever ready to help on that political policy, which seems to combine the greatest number of good elements, and not so anxious to eliminate the evil from that policy, as to see the most practical policy adopted by the country. This proposition does not involve a surrender of principle, for an ideal course that is beyond the power of the masses to ap preciate, much less to attain, is out side the range of present possibility, will not therefore serve the present nece...

One mellow smile through the soft, vapory air, Ere o'er the frozen earth, the loud wind run Or snows are sifted o'er the meadows bare.

Tophaven's Luck. HIS ADVENTURE ON THE LONG BRANCH BOAT. "Why not to me, as well as another man?" said Mr. Theodore Tophaven. The y%llow August sunshine shone brightly into the uncurtained window of the little attio bedroom; a box of pa per collars lay open on tho window-sill and a smoked-out cigar stump adorned the toilet-table; before which our hero f was waxing his moustache and arrang ing the unstudied flaxen waves of hair which drooped over his forehead; while a purple satin neck-tie, transfixed with an immense imitation diamond pin, adorned his breast, and a dollar bottle of eau do Cologne stood ready to bedew his cambric pocket-handkerchief. For Mr. Tophaven, ordinarily impris oned behind the counter, had a holiday and was going to spend it on tho Long Branch boat. "All the aristocracy travel in that di rection," quoth he to himself; "and who knows but that I may make an impres sion on somebody? Jones got a rich wife by riding on the top of the same stage that she fell off fro...

LOCAL. A number of ladies and Jemen from Portland attended the Garrison Hop last Friday evening. All present seemed to enjoy themselves as usual. The item in last weeks paper, about Major Henslee's sheep, erred in saying that ho lost 70 head of sheep by the wolves this winter, it being last winter that he lost that number. The reading people of this north west coast were jnerced to the heart last Tuesday, on reading the follow ing item from the Oregonian-s Albany correspondent: "Mr. Pierce, owner of the ferr;y, was troubled with sore throat last week." WHALE.—The Tacoma Hcrall says: A Whale was seen in the bay, from BlackwelP & Kelly's hotel, recently. It is wonderful how the news of lively times on Commencement Bay is spread ing. Even the fishes of the sea come to enjoy it. STIRRING.—Francis 11.

A Visit to the Amijhara, the Famous Perspiring Statue. My success was partly a fluke and partly owing to management. I had confided to tho wild Kooshal my desire to the see Amijhara, and promised him a small reward if we succeeded ; on which his protruding, luminous eye literally blazed wifh delight, and he promised to give me every support, though not, I think, so much because of the reward as for the fun itself. When people visit the Tain temples it is usual to send round with them a few of the priests, or other custodians, and also some of the Arab guard, whose ruffianly appearance has already been noted. The entrance to the concealed temple, beneath which is the Amijhara cave, is in the inner south side of the inclosure of the first temple which tho visitor enters—great teniple dedicated to Neminatha, the twenty-second Tir thankara. No one who did not know of it beforehand would suspect the exist ence of this concealed temple ; for the door is a part of the latticed stonework wh...

The Independent. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 1577. Louisiana and Oregon. Last Friday the Electoral Commis sion rendered their final decision in fa vor of the Republican Electors of Louis iana. Eight members of the Commis sion voted with the Republicans, seven with the Democrats. Their names are as follows: Bradley, Garfield, Morton, Edmonds, Hoar, Frelinghuysen, Miller aud Strong—S. Abbott, Bayard, Clif ford, ilunton, Payne and Thur rnan—7 Nearly all doubts about the final result are fast disappearing. Ore gon is the next serious bone of conten tion, but recent devclopemeuts unearth ed by the Senate investigating Commit tee have placed the leaders of that fiasco in such an unenviable position and have so disgusted the country, that the Oronin vote, as a thread upon which to hang a hope has diminished to gossamer proportions altogether invisible in the ordinary light ehed upon the political field.

Ettiqnette in the Germau Army. The cavalry is the favorite nrra of the German army, the Uhlans, rich in the prestige of the late war, being especially popular, while the two crack regiments are the Garde de Corps and tho lirst Garde Cuirassier. These are composed of men selected for their size, their offi cers bear the oldest names and their ap pointments are the very best. We be lieve they are the heaviest cavalry in Europe, the average weight carried by each horse being 9oU pounds, and their appearance in pure white uniform, with cuirass and helmet of polished brass, is very striking, even superior to that of the* English Guards. There is great rivalry between, them; one has the hereditary Grand Duke of Mecklenberg, | the other a prince of Hohenzollern, and theft is almost an equal distribution of lesser notables. Each is given an opera box, one under, the other opposite, the emperor's.'and they only agree in affect ing to ignore each other. Other regi ments are jealous, and say t...

Making Money by Farming. A shrewd writer, says the Country Gentleman, has given two rules, hereto fore mentioned occasionally in these columns, by following which any one may acquire more or less wealth, name ly: L Cut short your losses;" and 2, "Let your profits run on." There is no kind of business where the adoption of these rules is more needed than in farm ing; but there are many cultivators who do not know when they are losing and when ihey aro gaining. The great requisite for success therefore is to de termine this vital point. We know the owner of a small farm—and as doubtless every reader may know of an additional one—who thought ho was gradually adding to his property. But he kept no account with his farm, and did not look over his list of creditors. Before he was prepared for it, his credi tors came upon him with claims which ho could not meet, and days were con sumed in examining his whereabout. He discovered lie had gone to sea with out compass or log-book. Some of his ...

Awaiting Vindication, * REV ARK ABLE CASE OF CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE. Captain John Weatherwax resided near the village of Plattsburg, New York. He was a man of good character, one of a numerous family of the same name, the settlement being known for miles around as the Weatherwax settle ment. Captain Weatherwax lived near the Tillage of Plattsburg, New York. He was the owner of a snial! craft which plied on Lake Champlain, trading with New York, Vermont, and Canada towns along the shores of the lake. The crew of this vessel consisted of himself, his cousin Andrew Weatherwax, aud one Walter Brown. In the latter part of June, 1856, he left Plattsburg, with a cargo for Cana da, and, on the way back, stopped at Pike River landing, on the Canadian shore, where he was to take in a cargo of wood for Plattsburg. During the day, while the wood was being taken on board, a sharp quarrel arose between Captain Weatherwax and his cousin An drew, and mutual threats were indulged in. It was soon ov...

The Abyss of Niagara. a professor's story whigh may ex plain A MYSTERY. It happened not long ago that a dis cussion arose in the natural philosophy class at Williams College, on tho ques tion, " Why is it that, of the various victims carried over Niagara Falls, no trace has ever been found, either in Niagara River or Lake Ontario ?" One student suggested that the fall itself was sufficient to dash to atoms any body whatever; another thought that the weight of water could not but keep the body effectually down in tho cran nies of the abyss below the precipice; and the idea of the third was that the numerous fishes tenanting the deep pool would leave slender chance for " contin gent remainders." The genial professor, after hearing the various theories of his young philoso phers, said that he would not advance one of his own; but that, in humble imi tation of a greater man, he would tell them " a little story," which might pos sibly throw a ray of light Upon the sub ject: "In my early ...

We expected to be able this week to announce the conclusion of the whole presidential controversy, but the Dem ocrats are filbustering over tbe Ver mont returns,and up to the time of go ing to press we are unadvised of the fiual result. We have no doubt but that Hayes and Wheeler will be inau gurated next Sunday or Monday.

An Old Man's Lesson. Luke Tramway was thirty-five years old. Ho had been married twelve years, and four bright, loving children were his to love and care for. His wife, Maud, was true and devoted. He loved her with all his heart and she had returned that love in full. How happy Luke Tramway was du ring the first fow months of his mar riage, and how happy was Maud. Not a cloud to cast a shadow upon the bright sphere of love and good will, aud not a jar to disturb the harmony of the sweet music. They were capable of joy, and their cup was filled to the brim. Could the clouds ever come ? They told themselves never. Such love as theirs could not die out, aud as for truth and faith they were both sure and steadfast. And so, in sunshine and gladness, their first child was born, and new joy was theirs. Twelve years had passed since the happy morning of life—years of unin terrupted prosperity —and the house of Luke Tramway contained nil tho out ward things that can make life joyous, and yet...
