The Independent. THURSDAY, APRIL I. ws. On Tueadaj next occurs the election for delegates to tlie Constitutional Convention. In our Judicial District, and als - in the Council District, hut one set of candidates is presented to the people, and we have net as yet heard any dissatisfaction expressed in regard to any of them, except some slight grumbling from Olympia, which place was unable to locate all the can didates within its own boundaries. The interest iv the election is a'quiet one, most of our people being willing to try ! for State organisation, which must come sooner or later to place our Territory in the rank to which it is entitled both by population and its resources for wealth. In -.he Walla Walla District there is only one sot of candidates, On the Sound there is opposition to the Republican candidates, and more ex citement than in any part of the Ter ritory, a regular canvass being made. The only nominations in our districts are Republican, as fellows: Ter Delegate* at...

Fragrant Memories of Andersonville by a Survivor. An old survivor of Andersonville, in l a talk with a representative of tbe Exen- 1 ing Post, snys: I "There was an episode during my life < at Andersonville that stands out in my < memory ngaiust all others. No one can 1 conceive of the demoralization that I comes upon men confronted on all sides I with so much misery. While Anderson- 1 ville developed examples of as noble her- I oism and self-sacrifice as the world pro- I bsbly ever witnessed, it served also to ] bring out on the part of some of the in- > mates some of the most abhorrent and ■ despisable traits of humnn nature. Tbe 1 greatest luxury that could be enjoyed by j a prisoner was a warm blanket. Yet < men were found among the prisoners base 1 enough to rob their fellows of even these ' comforts. A gang of robbers wa9 or- ) ganized who went around the camp at 1 night, and tore the blankets and clothes I off from sick aud dying men, kicking I and beatiug those w...

Tin y aro not like the pine lands of the South and West, valuable only for their timber. The lit- and cedar timbei of the North west stands iv a heavy but rich clay soil. It neels but the removal of tim ber and the genial warmth of the sun, to produce the grasses, and vegetables, and even the cereals in abundance. The above is predicted of the timber lands proper.

The day is in its matchless close, The golden light to crimson grows, In flery spray the billows break. Now, mellow dusk blends with the fire.

The Independent. THURSDAY, APRIL 11.1-T> At last it has been decided that a Confederate Brigadier is better than a Democratic Union eoldier, maimed in his country's service. A short time since door-keeper Polk was re moved from his office by the House of Representatives, for peculation in offico anil othe)r irregularities. On Monday an election was held in the HotlM to fill his place, and Field, a Confederate Brigadier-General, was elected dix>r-keeper over Shields, a t.iart who, though ■ life-long Demo crat, fought is the Union army* against rebellion, leaving an arm on a battle tieid in his efforts to sustain the honor and unity of his country. This dis graceful act was consumated by Southern votes —the will of men who drenched the country in blood in their effort!- to destroy the country. They have demonstrated the resolve that "treason shall be made odious"" by putting traitors in all the high places, while Union Democrats a well as Republicans must take back seat-, and be...

The London Chick-Weed Man. Ilirda and flower* do much to enliven the dusky house windows of London streets, and both are attended to with great care.

Both chick-weed and groundsel are In aignifloant little things, but the epicu rean lurk, canary or goldfinch finds lv it a most beneficial article of diet, quite as much superior to other green stutF as— in the minds of some boys and giris—ice cream and sponge cake arc superior to roast beef and potatoes.

He was simple ya all liis tastes; liked old songs and old poetry, lie was always neatly, hut not finical iy dressed, He disliked gloves, and once I saw him extract seven or eight pairs of gloves from an overcoat pocket, where they had accumulated after having been furnished him by Mrs. Lincoln, Usually, be drank tea and coffee at the table, but lie preferred milk, or cold water. Wine was never on the table at the White House, except when visitors, other than familiar friends, were present. The President's glass was always iillcd, and he usually touched it to liis lips.
