The Independent. JANUARY -U, 1878. It seems the Chinese jieople are ready in more ways than one, to adopt the habits aud customs of the Ameri can race. They are in the realm of polities as w ell as elsewhere. It is said there is a veritable Chinese lobby at Washington, to look after the interests of their much despised countrymen. It is said to be powerful and well or ganized. Strange if the Chinaman without a vote should beat the dema gogues on their own ground and at their own game. Eastern people will not be slow to appreciate the situation, and John may stir up a feeling in the East that will in some way react upon the promulgator*, of those extreme measures against the Chinese in Cali fornia. There are plenty of men in the country who are of the same bent of mind in this respect as was the late Senator Morton. They do not talk much, and wheu they do, they speak rationally and their words count. Sar gent and Page et al will not be able to force their radical schemes through Cong...

Koees budded, bloomed, and fled — All the summer flowers are dead : Autumn showered her rainy tears— Hopes have faded into fears.

On Feeding 1 Horses New Hay and Oats. The question whether horses are in jured by being fed on new hay and fresh oats has been made a subject of investi gation by a French military commission, who have been experimenting upon cav alry regiments. The Kamcmd reports that the results of the experiments prove that the health of the horses was not es sentially injured by new hay if they re ceived tho ordinary regulation ration along with other fodder. Some animals were at first rather loss active aud more -quiet, they swoateil more freely, and the were somewhat softened ; hut in a short time this ceased. In general, the horses ate the new hay more willingly than the old. They retained tho same strength and corpulence as before. The hair kept bright, the health perfect. Of 150 horses from 4 to 18 years old, with which the experiments were instituted, :!7 gained in fatness, and 18 in strength and endurance. Oidy 18 hist flesh, ami 8 lost strength, while 7!) remained un changed. A second se...

The Independent. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7. 18T8, IIIKTV WIIKK. Louisiana, more particularly New Orleans, is never happy unless en gaged in trouble or making trouble for some one else: never was gov erned but once, when old Hen Butler was chief in command in that pesti lential locality; ami will probably remain ungovernable through all time. The latest phase is the arrest ami indictment of the returning board members, who gave the electoral vote to Hayes, ami also the threatened in dictments of Republican statesmen who went there while the returning board was in session to help still the troubled waters. The ultra disturbers in New Orleans, who once allowed Hayes' title to be pood on the same returns that ousted Packard, have bitterly repented of their quiet assent to that programme, and are now charging that it was all brought about by a corrupt bargain between President Hayes, the returning board, and some of the Democrats in the South.
