The Independent. THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1877. ludiaii Policy. The recent outbreak among the Indi ans of Western Idaho, and which prom ises to extend into Eastern Washington and Oregon, is only another one of the natural results of a mistaken Indian policy. The Quaker plan is a fraud. It has already cost the country many precious lives and much treasure, The humantarian theory of subduing the Indians with Sunday School tracts is the merest bosh. It is all very well for persons who are secure in their Eastern homes to talk of the Quaker policy, but those who have witnessed its practical work ings, who have tasted its practical effects in blood, well know that this crazy and fanatical attempt to civilize and christianize a few lazy, dirty, vaga bond Indians is simply preposterous. Those who sow the wind must inevita bly reap the whirlwind; and so long as our government gets down to the level of the Indian, so long as it sends out agents to hold solemn pow-wows with them, so long as the att...

David Grey's Estate. Over his forge bent David Grey, And thought of the rich man 'c ross the way. "Hammer and anvil for rac," he said, •A weary toil for the children's bread. "Kor him, soft carpets and pictured walls, A life of case in his spacious halls." The clang of bells on his dreaming broke; A flicker of flame, a whirl of smoke. Ox in travis, forge grown white-hot, j Coat and hat were alike forgot, As up the highway, the blacksmith rau, In face and mien like a crasy man. •'School house atire!" Men's hearts stood still, And the women prayed as women will. While 'bove the tumult the wailing cry Of frightened children rose shrill and high. Night in its shadows hid sun and earth; The rich man sat by his costly hearth. Lord of wide acres at.d untold gold, But wifeless, childless, forlorn and old. He thought of the family 'cross the way; "1 would," he sighed, "I were David Grey." The blacksmith knelt at his children's bed To look once more at each shiuing head. "My darlings all safe...

Central Africa's Danger. Stanley writes that "within the equato rial rainy belt of Africa and that vast ex tent of country known as Soudan, there are 50,000,000 of people who only waut a railroad to the sea coast to give the out side world a trade of many millions of dollars." Now just look at that,will you? Just place your optics upon the advance of civilization into the heart of Africa. Look at these benighted pagans, turning deaf ears to the consolations of the gos pel carried to them by the missionaries, sitting down in front of their humble huts, and crying for a railroad. Poor, de luded, misguided Africans. What has Mr. Stauley been telling you? How could he impose upon your ignorance and your childish credulity, and fill your un tutored miuds with vague, unrestful yearnings for a railroad? They will want a daily paper next, and then they won't be satisfied until they have a telephone, a system of life insurance, a Beecher scan dal, a Louisiana muddle, a signal service bureau,...

Since the discovery of the forgery that came so near displacing Chief Jus tice Lewis, large numbers of Federal officials have gone to Washington to assure the president that they have not yet resigned, and to request him not to con uder them resigners or resigned un til they have brought their resignations in person and satisfactorily identified themselves.— Albany Democrat. Just so! Under a Democratic ad ministration, though, such an assurance would be entirely unnecessary, and a forged resignation impossible; for a Democratic President would know very •well that Democratic officials never resign, and rarely die in office. Of all the Democratic presidents, not one has died during his official term. All the presidents who have died in office have boon either Whigs or Republicans; al though the Democrats have had eleven of thorn out of nineteeen. Some surprise was expressed by the English people at seeing Gen. Grant in the garb of a private citizen. They could hardly understand how a...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. "(Tradation." BY ML HOLLAND. I count this thing to be graudly true: That a noble deed is a step toward God—• Lifting the soul from a common clod To ft purer air and a broader view. We rise by the things that are under our feet; By what we have mastered of good and gain; By the pride deposed and the passion slain, And the vanquished ills that we hourly meet. Wings for the angels, but feet for men! We may borrow the w ings to find the way— We may hope, and resolve, and aspire, and pray; But our feet must rise, or we fall again. Only in dreams is a ladder thrown From the weary earth to the sapphire walls; But the dreams depart, and the vision falls, And the 6leeper wakes ou his pillow of stone. Heaven is not reached at a single bound; But we build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies. And we mount to its summit round by round. Wiertz's Weird Picture...

Common Sense Grape Pruning. Many pruners say, cut severely and to a certain system, without regard to any aircumstauce which may or may not act disastrously to the health of the plant, but I greatly prefer the plan practiced by an old farmer friend, which he styles the "common sense system," aud which con sists merely in pruning very little and only when it is absolutely necessary. I know he has fruit when many of his more scientific neighbors have little or none. The first season after planting it is a good idea to start with new wood, and to do this, it is necessary to cut back two or three eyes, allowing only one shoot, to grow from these, which will form the main stem in after years. Tie the shoots up neatly to the trellis, spreading them neatly over the surface, anil cut away all the superfluous branches when such are growing thickly together. The ends of all the shoots, as a general rule, are of very little use in furnishing fruit-produc ing buds, so they may all be kept back ...

THURSDAY, JUNE 28. 1577. Proscription. Although the Seliguian-Hilton con troversy, which filled the eastern jour nals a few days ago, turns out to be only a personal quarrel, yet the unmis takable tone of the leading newspapers, indicates that the day has gone by in this country, when men can be pro scribed for their opinions. Judge Hil ton disclaims any intention to perse cute the Jews on account of their reli gious belief. Well he may; for the public conscience has at last become justly sensitive on this subject. The Jew, the Catholic, and the Infidel con tribute their share of tax to the support of the government, and are, theivfore, justly entitled to the same rights and immunities a.s the Protestant. Pro scription and bigotry can no longer stand in the way of free speech, free press and free schools. An eloquent public speaker has recently declared that those who will not recognize us in business or society, Weause we do not vote their ticket or worship their Clod, ''have the h...

Cures Effected by Laughter. Laughter has often dissipated diseases and preserved life by a sudden effort of nature. We are told that the great Eras mus laughed so heartily at a satirical re mark that he broke a tumor and recov ered his health. Joubert gives two sim ilar instances. Another story is that of a minister who was called on by a poor wom an to see If he could save a sick cow. To appease her importunity he went to the barn and repeated as an incantation three times the words, "If she gets well she will get well." Some time after the minister was sick with a tumor in the throat, when the poor woman forced her self into what was supposed to be the chamber of death reciting, "If he gets well he will get well." The re perform ance of his own absurd not caused the sick man to burst out in such a hearty laugh that the tumor broke and he soon regained his health. A patient being very low the physician, who had ordered a dose of rhubarb, coun termanded it, and the medicine was left...

'rltten for the Vancouver Independent.] Bunch Grass Letter. Editor Independent: The winter this side of the Cascade Mountains has been the mildest known for many years—not over two inches of snow falling' in this locality —some- what deeper in more elevated regions. Spring is several weeks earlier than usual. Stock is looking exceedingly well. Crops, as a general thing, are not good—too dry —no rain for six weeks. This is not a natural farm ing country, as there is no certainty about the crops, without irrigation; nnd irrigation in a great many locali ties is impossible; consequently but little fanning is done, with the excep tion of Willow Creek, Butter Creek and the Umatilla River bottoms. Some little farming is done along the Columbia, where the massive rocks fail to connect with the river, but the sturdy tillers of the soil are greatly in the minority. Stock raising has the preference, and for this the country is well adapted. Thousands of acres of the best of grass is yet untro...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Retrospect. Oh! to go back in our lives, To live them over again. Knowing all that now we know, Seeing all we saw not then. Oh! to refrain from speaking Where that hasty word was said, Oh! but to break thut silence Which weighs on our hearts like lead. Oh! but to tarry once more At that point where two roads met. And choose as we chose not then, Made wise by a life's regret. Oh! but to set out afresh With some who front earth are fled, Now we've read them by the radiance Death sheds around the dead! Thus cry we now and again In words of remorseful pain. Yet deep iv our heart of hearts Thank God that the prayer is vain. Russian Social Life.

Can a Poultry Farm Pay? P A correspondent of the London Jour mai of Horticulture gives us his opinion H regard to the above subject: I This question has been fully answered ■a the affirmative by our neighbors, the French. Hitherto with U9 the attempts have ended more or less in failure; but is that a reason, if a proper method is adopt ed, and due care and supervision exer cised, that we should not succeed in the future! From the accounts I have before me of the French poultry farms, I gather that if we follow their example and breed for sale just as ordinary farmers do their sheep and oxen, there is no apparent rea son why a fairly remunerative profit should not be realized by poultry farmers of this country. My belief is that all at tempts hitherto iv Great Britain have been undertaken aud carried out on a fal lacious basis. Th(! mania for prize-win ning and fancy exhibiting has helped to bar success. Again, too expensive and elaborate buildings, etc., have beeu an other cause of ...

And I think as 1 gaze ' On tremulous blaze, lTiat thou surely was drawn hy an angel of God. Through the black heart of night, Leapiug out to light, Thou art reeking with sunset, and dyed with dawn; Cleft the Emerald sod- Cleft the mountains of Cod- And the shadows of roses yet resting thereon. When all crimson and gold, Slowly home to the fold, Do the fleecy clouds flock to the gateway of even, Then, no longer brook-born, But a way paved with morn, Ay, a bright golden street to the city of Heaven! Broad and brave, deep and strong, Thou art lapsing along; Aid the stars rise and fall in thy turbulent tide, As light as the drifted White swau's breast is lifted, Ot a I une fleet of lillies at anchor may ride, With a silvery skein Wove of snow and of rain, Thou didst wander at will through the bud laden land— All the air a sweet psalm— And th...

Romance of a Hospital. St. Franciscus Hospital, a Catholic in stitution in this city, has recently been the scene of a very romantic occurrence. Some five or six months ago, a young physician, son of a prominent citizen of Pittsburg, obtaiued the appointment of assistant physician to the hospital. As be is a Protestant, some surprise was manifested by those conversant with the facts, that he should be thus honored by a Catholic institution. He received no pay for his services, further than his board and unlimited command of the splendid wines and liquors of the estab lishment, which are as abundant as they are good. Everything apparently ran along smoothly and pleasantly to all, until a short time ago; when an event transpired which has caused the young physician to sever his connection with the institution, the reason therefore being this: Residing in the hospital were sev eral nuns and sisters of mercy, who had taken vows of eternal celibacy. One of these, however, hnppened to be ...
