Wit and Hninor. It is proposed in Indiana to change the mnrriagc service so as it will read "Who dare, take this woman?" And the bride groom shall answer "I dare." Two ostriches, harnessed to a wagon, can pull a load of a thousand pounds, and all the care they need is a pail of wa ter, two or three old bones and a hod of brick. Send in your orders early.— Free Prett. A it.Mi.HOAD conductor and trackman were "having words" with each other, and the conductor said: "An express train is rather faster than you are, my man."

The Passe* of Hie Casrades. We have just been shown now top ographical drawings of the country between Ta^una and Yakima City, which define a practicable route for a railroad pursuing the following course: Beginning at a point on the Puyallup Branch Road, it crosses the Michelle Fork, and following the up per waters of the Nisqually and Cow litz, crosses through the Packwood pass; thence it follows the south fork of the Tenim (popularly called the Bumping,) and enters the valley of the lower Natchez, through which it passes to the Yakima. The grade upon no part of this line will exceed that of the Pennsylvania Central road between Altoona and the summit of the Alleghenies, and the alignment of the Northern Pacilic Railroad over the Cascades would be equal to this famous Pennsylvania road. A short distance to the north of Mt. Tacoma, there are two other passes which are believed to be equal in every respect ami a little shorter than the above described route. Be sides being shorter, ...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPIK OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. It Isn't All in Bringing l'p. It isn't all in "bringing up," Let folks say what they w ill: To silver scour a pewter cup- It will be pewter still. E'en of old wise Solomon, Who said "Train up a child," If I mistake not had a son, Proved rattle brained aud wild. A man of mark, w ho fain would pass For lord of sea and land, May have the training of a son, And bring liiiu up full grand; May give him all the wealth of lore. Of college and of school. Yet after all make him no more Than just a decent fool. Another, raised by penury Upon his bitter bread. Whose road to knowledge is like that The good to heaven must tread — He's got s spark of Nature's light, He'll fan it to a Basse, 'Till In burning letters bright The world may read his name. If it were all in "bringing up," In counsels and restraint, Some rsseals had been honest men— I'd been myself a saint. Oh, It isn't all In "bringi...

Advice to Bachelors. "Every dog has his day." and so has ; the bachelor. In all this weary old world there is no creature more hopelessly for- ,i lorn than the unmarried man who has i cultivated the pleasures of his youth, and rinds himself jogging alone—with I ever-increasing speed, despite gout aud < rheumatism—down the sunset slope of • life. While the bio un of youth was on I him, he was a gay gallant, whom ma- i neuvering mammas and marriageable daughters "followed, flattered, sought i and sued;' 1 but when he enters the sea- s son of the sere and yellow leaf, and peo- I pie find out that he is a continued old s bachelor who positively will not marry, I then female flatterers drop away, muter famiiiat become devoted to younger and more eligible beaux, and the girls turn i up their dainty noses at him. So the : social tics of "lang syne" are one by one severed, and no new ones come to take their place; then he flies to his club for i companionship, but even there he must stan...

The Independent. THURSDAY', JANUARY 10, MM, Montgomery Blair has introduced a, memorial in the Maryland Legislature praying "that needful legislation may lie adopted by Congress to ascertain ju dicially who was elected President at the recent election, and to give effect to the will of the people," &&, Ac, Blair expects that similar memorials will be forthcoming from the legisla tures of other States. When will this electro-presidential muddle be settled! It seems that the constantly increasing Republican disaffection has nerved the opposite party to further and louder howls against the •Vounting-in" process. Mr. Beecher stiil continues a power in the hind, notwithstanding all that has been said and done against him. At the annual pew sale of Plymouth Church last Tuesday, the receipts were $:ui. , .'04.

Grade Cattle and Thoroughbreds. Thinking over the difference of keep- ] ing common grade cattle and possessing a herd of pure breds, suggested a little calculation: Thus, say a man has fifty ! beeves, including heifer calves. Suppose there are ten heifer calves raised every year, there would be also ten yealings, ten two year old, and ten three year old, which would leave ten cows four years old, making fifty altogether. Now, ac cording to the best English system of dairy husbandry,these oldest cows, which are just in their prime, would be kept barren this year and, when dry from milk, be fattened, and sold for beef. Well, if these were good Orauge County grade cows and managed on this English sys tem, they would probably make very line beef, and now, as the best meat lias a ready sale for expo)tation, these ten cows would make $80 each, thus bringing in $800 per year, over and above what would arise from the milk or the butter. Now, we will suppose that instead of grade cattle, ano...

The Later Peace. We hare passed the noonduy s\nnuiit. We hare left tlie noonday heat. And down the hill-side slowly Descend our wesried feet.

Yet a peaceful se.isou woos us Bra the linn * ol storm aud snow. Like the bander twilight weather. When the toil of day is done.

The Independent. THURSDAY, J AMU ART 17, 1878, The War iv i lv* East. The gordian knot which Russia is tying for Turkey becomes every day mora intricate. The Bulky old Otto mon has been narrowed down to the contra] positions of his kingdom, and now howls for an armistice that he may collect his scattered wits and de vise means towards tbe best wav out of the difficulty. He will no doubt get badly plucked before the powers have finished with him. Russia has sacrificed too much no! to demand a quantum of spoils adequate to the measures adopted to bring the Turk to subjection, Tlie Turk is badly dilapidated. Besides all the horrors of battle, its carnage and spoliation, the horrible concomitants which usually follow in the shape of famine, pestilence and plague are upon them. It is said the sufferings from cold and hunger are beyond description. Pending all this, and while the Rus sian Generals are still advancing, two delegates have been appointed by the Turkish government to arrange ...
