Domestic Bliss. There ia a sacred spot on earth, Which antedates our joys above; Tis where we sit when toil is o'er, With those we love Oft, in my waking dreams, 1 sit, With the dear darlings of my life. And ga/.e upon those treasured genus— My child and wife! Tbe tleeting pleasures ol the world. Like darkening shadows fade away, And gives us glimpses of tbe bliss Which scorns decay Oh. wedded love! God's dearest gift To render all his creatures bles'., Tis only, neath its smile we taste A perfect rest A Race for Life. "My dear fellow, I am delighted to see j you," exclaimed my friend McCausland, as he met mo at the door of his house. 1 had gone on a visit to Homesdale, a little town in the north of England. McCausland was engineer to the water company there, and had Invited me to go iown for a week. After the usual interval for dressing, we sat down at the excellent little dinner.

Lee's Surrender. I remember—and it was recalled to me to-night in conversation when tbe name of General Grant came up in the course of conversation — the wonderful scene that transpired in that little place in Virginia, on the 6th of April, 1865. It was late in the afternoon when it became known that General Lee bad sent for General Grant to surrender to him. It was between 2 and 3 o'clock when we met in the little room in the house where tlie surrender of Lee's army took place. I know there is a belief that the surren der took place under an apple tree, where Grant and Lee met and exchanged a few words. The surrender took place in the left-hand room of that old-fash ioned double house. The house had a large piazza which ran along tbe full length of it. It was one of those ordin ary Virginia houses with a passage-way running through the centre of it. In that little room where the meeting took place sat two young men—one a great grandson of Chief Justice Marshall, of the Supreme Cour...

Information For Immigrants. Clarke County is in Washington Territory, on the north side of the Columbia river, about 75 miles fro n the sea coast, and separated from Maltuomali County, Oregon, by the Columbia river. It has an area of about 670 square miles, 540 of which is surveyed. Scat tered over this surface there is a population of 4,000 pe>ple; their chief occupation being agriculture. This country, like the balance of Western Washington is a timber country; yet there is here some land which is natural ly devoid of timber, but all of this is occu pied. There is a quantity of unoccupied gov ernment land in this county, all of which is more or less timbered. Some of it is com paratively easy to clear, but a large part of it is covered with heavy green timber. This land lies chiefly on the eastern and north eastern boarders of the county, and is, of course, more remote from schools and mar ket than are the settled sections. Tbe sur face of the country in the central and west er...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Poem by William Cullen Bryant. Read at BtitnintjUm, Vt., Cetttr-nnial Ct Uhra tion. On this fair valley's verdaet breast The calm, sweet rays of summer rest. And dove like peace benignly broods On its smooth lawns aud solemn woods. A century since, in flame and smoke, The storm of battle o'er it broke. And, ere the invader turned and fled These pleasant fields were strewn with dead. Stark, quick to act and bold to dare, And Warren's mountain band were there, And Allen, who had flung the pen Aside to lead the Berkshire men. With tiery onset, blow on blow, Tbey rushed upon the embattled foe, Aud swept bis squadrous from tbe vale Like leaves before tbe autumn gale. Oh, never may the purple stain • Of combat blot these fields again, Nor this fair valley ever cease To wear the placid smile of peace! Yet here, beside that battle field, We plight the vow that, ere we yield The rights fo...

Pnre Milk. If all the dirty and careless practices •were known which prevail at our farms relative to the food, water, stabling and yarding of cows, and in milking and taking care of the milk, it would no long er be a mystery why so many are feeble and sickly among us. There is probably no article of diet which is so easily poi soned with unhealthy ingredients as milk. The cow's blood is poisoned by impure food and water. Aud if the blood is im •pnre the milk must be. And if there be ; any impure g ises or noxious scents in the atmosphere, tbey are greedily absorbed by milk, either in stable, cow yard, or milk room. The sugar of milk is so delicious to the taste that it hides and sugar-coats a thousand impurities and deadly elements in the milk which is so greedily devoured by the infantile idols of the human race, and their transplanta tions from earth to heaven is ascribed to a wise Providence, when in fact the ter rible crime was caused by the filthy and criminal practices of tho...

The Independent. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1877. Proposed Compromise. We are informed that a proposition has been made by the Catholic Church, to give to the city a quit claim deed of all the interest of St. James Mis sion, in the Vancouver town site, for the sum of $0,500. We trust this of fer will receive the prompt attention of the City Council, as it seems to meet with much favor among the property holders of Vancouver, as well as among others, who contem plate making investments in real es tate here. Not long since, the Council >:nade an appropriation of $5,000, for the purpose of perfecting the title of the town company to the tract in ques tion. The proposition above referred to, offers a shorter road, however, to the end of the long and tiresome liti gation which has for years rested like an incubus upon the prosperity of Vancouver. This shorter routo, is probably worth $1,500 more than the other, and only, alternative, of "fight ing to the bitter end." If a reasonable cojn...

How Kindness Was Appreciated. "Please pull that bell, mister," asked au innocent looking boy who was stand ing on the step of a house on Franklin street above Girard avenue yesterday morning, of a dandy chap who was pass ing by. Thinking that the boy resided iv the house, and desired to gain admit tance thereto, the daudy replied, "Cer tainly, sonny." This little act of kind ness, thought the dandy, certainly ought to accord him a smile or a "thank you from the sister, who he had no doubt would answer the bell. It was in the hope of receiving some such recognition that he lingered for a moment. The door was opened by a robust daughter of the Emerald Isle, who carried a broom in her band. "Phat did yez ring that bell for?" she inquired of the small boy, who had takeu a position on the curbstone. "I didu't ring it; it was that 'ere man," responded the mischievous little rascal, pointing to the retreating dandy. Bridget started after the latter, and catching up to him gave him a whacki...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Take Back Thy Gifts. Take back thy gifts—l crave not one To keep for memory's sake; I would not have the sight of them One fond regret awake. A withered rose—ah! once so fair, Faded and worthless now; Fit emblem of our sweet, dead past, And every broken vow. One tiny curl, from off thy brow, Held with a knot of blue; "Beathis a token," then you said, "My love for thee is true." Take back thy ring—a lovely pearl Of rarest purity; "An emblem of your love," you said, "Through all eternity!" 1 cannot say, take back thy love, I'm sure 'twas never mine, Would not a heart that's truly given, More constant prove than thine? And thus we part—l will not say It causes me no pain; A brightness from my life has gone, That ne'er will come again. — Ltola Glempooil. Corinue's Mistake. Three merry girls entered the cars at the terminus of a city road. They were bright-eyed, intelligent, and full ...

How to Fatten Chickens. It is hopeless to attempt to fatten chickens while they are at liberty; They must be put in a proper coop, and this, like most poultry appurtenance?, need not be expensive. To fatten twelve fowls, a coop must be three feet long, eighteen inches high, aud eighteen inches deep, made entirely of bars. No part of it solid, neither top, side nor bottom. Dis cretion must be used according to the sizes of the chickens put up. They do not want room ; "indeed, the closer they are the better —provided they can all stand up at the same time. Care must be taken to put up such as have been ac customed to be together, or they will fight. If one is quarrelsome it is better to remove it at once, as, like other bad examples it soon finds imitators. A dis eased chicken should not be put up. The food should be ground oats, and may either be put iv a trough or on a flat board running along the front of the coop. It may be mixed with water or milk; the latter is better. It should...

Educational Notes. In the educational classification of the States North Carolina stands next to the foot. The University of South Carolina ■which was recently closed by the trustees will probably be re-opened sometime next year. The question of introducing algebra, Latin and Greek, into tbe grammar grades of the Cleveland schools, is under consid eration by the Board of Education. In the schools of ltochcster, N. V., a work on civil government is to be substi tuted for the study of physics in the first grades of the Grammar schools, and al gebra is to take the place of history. It is said that at Oberlin not a few of the students get through the year with out spending over $150, all told. Twenty seven dollars a year covers the entire cost of tuition, incidentals and library fees in even the highest departments. Board and rooms in the town are very cheap Scarcely one of the professors, it is re ported, gets a salary on which he can sup port his family. So they preach on Sun days, te...
