The Independent. FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1877. Wayside Notes. SPRING DUEAMIXGS. All hail the coming spring, making its advent fully a month earlier than is usual in this rainy latitude. The larks sing merrily, the grass is grow ing and covers the ground with a green mantle of velvet, beautiful be neath the rifts of sunlight and soft to the foot as the yielding turf by the gurgling brook in the copse or the denser shades of the forest giants. The johnny-jump-ups lift their tiny faces and vie with the grass blades for supremacy in the nooks among the dankish and mossy logs, and the fleecy clouds above cast their ever changing shadows over the minature worlds where dwell the millions of the floral kingdom. Blackbirds chirp on the staked and ridered fence, and the tiny squirrels come from their nests, three or four together, and play "hide and go seek" along the panels and in the corners. The wren has begun chirping to his mate, and the little home for the prospective bird lings is already be...

The Hour Glass. Sparkling, dane ing down, Merrily drop the load, While the golden hours so gaily pass, Amid rose aud lily, and soft green grass; Wherefore so eager to turn the glass, <>h! dimpled baby hands! Glittering-, flashing downward, In the glow of the April sun, Ah! sweet white ringers, aud sky-blue eyes, Aud cheeks as rosy as western skies; •lis a pity in Youth's first Paradise That the sands so swiftly run. Stealing forever downward, Oray tinging their virgin gold, Pulses still quiver, and heart* still beat, But the road grows hard for the tired feet; Surely the sky had more warmth and heat And the sands showed brighter of old. Drooping drearily downward, The evening is well nigh o'er, The brightest and best the river have C rossed, The bolt is shot and the venture lost; The bark on the last long wave is tossed, The glass needs to turn no more.

Journalism Twenty Centuries Ago. The first Roman Journal, published over two thousand years ago, appeared only once a year. This paper, intended to be read by the public, was known by the title Annates Maximi. The editor of this paper was the "Pontifex Maximus," whose duty it was to chronicle all the im portant events of the year. The news was written on white wooden tablets and attached to the residences of citizens. It must have been a curious sight to see the old Romans crowding around these tab lets to get a look at the latest news. But the thirst after knowledge and the curi osity of the people grew rapidly, and in such a measure that the government, the only issuer of a journal, found itself obliged to issue a daily. It is interesting to know that some of these journals, having reached the age of 2,044 years, j are still in existence. The name of the \ fir6t daily journal was Acta Populi Ho tnani Divmi; it appeared daily either as "Album," I*. «., the tablet hung out in public...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. At Rest. The wild birds sit and sing, and sing, In leafy branches clear and low; The bright clouds lie against the west In drifts of rosy-tinted snow. A silver thread of water runs In shining ripples at my feet, Fringed round with ferns and daisy-blooms— White snowflakes, starry-eyed and sweet. Through drooping willows, cool and green, The sunlight falls in bars of gold; The air is full of sweet perfume, A subtle fragrance all untold. O, Life, that Is so all-complete, So rounded, and so full to me, At rest upon this mossy bank I realize my love for thee! No wonder that the daisies bloom, No wonder that the clouds are bright; Or that the wild birds sing, and sing, From glowing morn to quiet night! Boston's Newest Wonder. The new Trinity Church in Boston, built to replace the one destroyed by the great fire, stands on the so-called Back Bay, the site, which is almost triangular, b...

Fence Posts Top End Down. A study of vegetable physiology led me to try several experiments, many years ago, to throw light upou this ques tion. The sap of moisture goes up iv the sap-wood from the roots to the leaves of trees. I found if the post is butt-end down, the pores are open upward, and water can go up, aud thus keep the post moist between wind and water, which must cause a rapid decay. It appeared probably that the pores were open only upward, and not downward in the tree. To test this, I cut a small maple sapling, (two inches throttgh), in May, leaving the limbs all on, and placed the butt-end in a pail of brine. Iv thirty-six hours the leaves were saturated with this brine, the taste of the salt being strong. At the same time I had cut another maple sapling, and cutoff the top brunch, leaving the rest of the limbs on. After winding a cloth around the butt cud, to prevent evaporation, I placed the top end iv a pail of brine, and allowed it to re main several days, but no ...

The Independent. FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 18TT. South Carolina. At last Wade Hampton's hopes are realized. The President has is sued an order for the withdrawal of the troops from the State House at Columbia. This action on the part of the President amounts to a recogni tion ol tin. 1 Hampton faction, for Chamberlasn is powerless to do any thing unless supported by federal bayoneti. Might does not always make right, and we are fearful that while Mr. Hampton may have the might on ills side, be has not the masses of the people with him. Such a thing is not impossible, in view of the huge negro element in that State; for it is very much as Chamberlain says w hen speaking of his constituents; "They are patient under the infliction of wrong; they are slow to resort to vi olence, even in defense of their rights." Such is the negro character, and we are slow to believe but that there is still a spirit predominating among the hot bloods of the Palmetto State which is strongly aver-e to Ne gro suffr...

There's a beautiful song on the slumberous air That drifts through the valley of drea'.ts; It comes from a clime where the roses were, And a tuneful heart and bright brown hair That waved in the morniug beams. Soft eyes of azure, and eyes of brown. And snow-white foreheads are there; A glimmering cross and glittering crown, A thorny bed and a couch of down, Lost hopes and leaflets of prayer. A rosy leaf in a dimpled hand. A ring ami a plighted vow; Three golden rings on a broken hand, A tiny track on the snow-white sand, A tear and a sinless brow. There's a tincture of grief in the beautiful song That sobs on the summer air, And loneliness felt in the festive throng Sinks down iv the soul as it trembles along From aclinic where the roses are. ■ We heard it first at the dawn of the day, And it mingled with matin chimes; But years have distanced the beautiful lay, And its melody tloweth from tar away, And we call it now "Old Times." — Thtslry's M ajNsrftSf.

Scraps From Harper. Have you heard (asks a friend) of the Centennial incident of the bucolic gentle man from Maine visiting the Exhibition? After having been shown by his friend some of the different State buildings— Kansas, Nebraska, New Jersey, etc.—he turned to a friend and inquired for the Maine building. The friend, pointing to the main structure, said, "There it is." "Wa'al," he replied, "I knew our folks 'd git up suthin' han'some!" This from "Taunton, good lord, where they shoot shad with a rail!'' "When I was a hoy of eight years I at tended the grammar school in S , and fell desperately in love with a little black eyed, red-cheeked damsel of nine. The course of true love did not run smooth. I was jealous of a big squint-eyed fellow with whom she would always slide down hill, while I went alone. At last, iv my frenzy, I wrote a startling letter to the little flirt, declaring my passion, and ask ing her which she intended to marry. The answer soon came, saying that she loved...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. The Truth of It. BY JOSEPHINE POLLARD. The man who all his life depends On the help of friends, Contented thus to eat the bread With which he's fed, Who never laid upon the shelf A cent of money he's earned himself, Or lent his hand to a neighbor's need. Or moved his heart toward a kindly deed, A helpless clod of earth is he, And a poorer man than I'd like to be! The man who thinks it doesn't pay To mark his way With roses; and has seldom smiled On wife and child; Who has no manners that are not rough, Whose face is stern and whose voice is gruff, From whom the little ones run dismayed, From whom the beggar receives no aid, Though rich in houses and lands, yet he Is a poorer man than I'd care to be! For love has infinite demands For idle hands; And richer far than pride or pelf, Is love itself; And he who cannot afford to give A word or a smile that a heart may live, Who shuts h...

Turkey Raising. The Poultry Journal has this advice ■on this subject: "The great and only secret in raising turkeys is to keep them dry and warm. They must, at the same time, have such grass, bugs, flies and gravel as they would pick up if running at large. Make a pen of any old boards, not less than two and one-half feet high (more would be better) and so tight that the chicks cannot get out through it, in a cor ner of the meadow, orchard, calf-pasture or house-yard. Sixteen feet square will be large enough for a brood of ten or fifteen, and half a dozen such broods may be kept in a place sixteen feet wide and forty or fifty feet long. Let the chicks remain in the nest twelve to twenty-four hours after they are hatched, then put them in the pen towards even ing, after the heat of the sun has passed, and long enough before evening to per mit them to explore their new quarters and get tired before dark. A little be fore "roosting time" give them a liberal feed of bread soaked in milk...

The Independent. FRIDAY, APRIL 30, I*l7. Shun Evil Publications. Shun bad books, bad papers, bad magazines and bad publications of all descriptions if you would have healthy sentiments, pure morals and happy thoughts. This is one of the most important considerations for all people. No boy or girl, who has not had a deal of training in that regard by tbe watchful parent, guardien, or teach er, is capable of selecting his or her own reading matter with that judge ment which is necessary to guard against that moat insidious and subtle of all evils, the bad book. Parents, if your children have arrived at the age when their developing minds demand reading, look sharp after what they read. Don't forget to make it your business to supervise their conduct in this respect. A neglect of your duty at this age may become the beginning point of a sinful career, alike distinctive of their happi uess and your honor. At the present day there are more seeds of moral depravity to be found in vicious ...

Marguerite. She is so sweet, so sweet. My dainty Marguerite. She is so fair, so fair, From clustering golden hair To little restless feet. But cau I tell her this, And can I beg a kiss? 1 feat she would say "Nay"— A! but a blushing "Yea" Would be such bliss! Yet she is cold, so cold; I dare not be so bold. If she my love would bless And give me but a tress Of her dear hair of gold! But she's no heart, no heart j Her sweetness is an art, Her hair's a glittering net, So she's not stung me yet With Love's keen dart. Farewell, then, Marguerite' Though Mowers spring at your feet, T will not be your slave. Your love I do not crave, Nor will I call you sweet. Getting Ahead of Astor. "But, grandfather, what about your first business transaction with Astor?" one of us asked.

Notes on Education. The kindergarten system has been in troduced in the government schools for girls in China. Bills are now pending in the Ohio Legislature to prevent the too frequent change of text-books in the public schools. The Minnesota Legislature has passed a bill providing for a uniform system of text-books in the public schools, and giving the monopoly for fifteen years to any publisher who shall give assurance of furnishing books to every scholar at half the present trade prices. The bill for compulsory education has passed the Ohio Legislature. The law will take effect on the Ist of next Septem ber, and compels all children in the State between 8 and 14 years of age to attend school at least 12 weeks in each year, not less than 0 weeks of such attendance to be consecutive. Mr. Arunah Huntington, of Brant ford, Ontario, a native of Vermont, died a few days ago and left most of his prop erty for the support of the common schools iv his native State.
