What Cam* of a Surprise Party. * The New York Times thus refers to a recent occurrence at Rhinebeck-on-the -11 ml son : How it happened that one day last week a number of native Rhinebeckians determined to subject an estimable fel low-townsman to the outrage of a sur prise party, it is hopeless to inquire. It was one of those sporadic cases of crime which baffle the theories of students of social science. No less thau thirteen persons were concerned in it, and they banded themselves together under the leadership of a man who had hitherto borne a good reputation. The affair was managed with much secrecy, and but for the timely awakening of the conscience of one of the conspirators, might have proved disastrously successful. This conspirator was a youth who, though easily led astray, was not without noble impulses. The night before the date fixed upon for the commission of the crime, he was passing near a house in which a female voice was singing "The Sweet By and By." He remembered t...

An Old Prediction. The New England Almanack for the yoar 1758, published at New Loudon, Conn., a work for the far future as well a 9 for its contemporaries. "America" was the subject of its inspiration, and its anticipation of the discovery of precious metals in the far west is certainly note worthy. A correspondent has copied the article literally, which is as follows. The "Almanack" is now exceedingly rare, only one copy of the above year being known: "America is a subject -which daily be comes more and more interesting; I shall, therefore, till these pages with a word upon its past, present, and future state. "I. First, of its past state. Time has cast a shade upon this scene. Since the creation innumerable accidents have hap pened here, the bare mention of which would create wonder and surprise, but they are all lost in oblivion.

Wilkes Booth's Diary. When Booth was captured his diary was fouud beside him. He had kept a faithful record to the last moment. This diary was deposited in thu Department of Justice, and is now there. I make the following extracts: "April 14.—Friday, the Ides. Until to-day nothing was ever thought of sac rificing to our country's wrongs. For six months we hud worked to capture, but, our cause being almost lost, some thing decisive and great must be done. Hut its failure wxa owing to others who did not strike for their country with a heart. I struck boldly, and not as the papers say. I walked with a firm step through a thousand of his friend-?, was stopped but pushed on. A Colonel was at bis side. I shouted 'Sin semper!' j before 1 lired. Iu jumping broke my leg.

BRIEF MENTION. Raspberries are ripe. • Printers' picnic next Saturday. City Council meets next Monday evening. The water is almost to the top of the Gov ernment wharf. Dr. Col lings sells off his household goods to-morrow, at auction. On Monday doe Rurke went to Oregon and back again, all in one day. Every day now, the steamer Vancouver takes a lot of baled hay into Portland. Only two persons joined the excursion steamer on Sunday last in Vancouver. James R. Hall shot a deer near Lewis River last week that dressed nearly '340 pounds. Wolf's new potatoes «re very good if our household contains any judge of the article. Sam. Marsh is still hobbling about on his crutch, but manages to get to the anvil part of the time. "Love's labor lost"—the broken swallows' nests and dead fledglings that encumber the walks in places.

The "Evil Spirit of the Plains." A Tribune reporter yesterday met I)-. W. F. Carver, who bears the reputation of j being the greatest rifle shot in the world, | and was not long in learning that the doctor was, of all others, the identical i man whom wo had been wanting to meet for an interview. The doctor not only j stands entirely out of sight above all others in the use of the lifte, but has a history which is as entertaining a- it is novel—as startling as to the eastern mind it yt ouul appear improbable. The doc tor has lived a whole li.'e upoa the plains and in the f rests and mountains of the far west. He would naturally be ex pected t • ] resent the exterior of an un couth savage, and to possess a mind of J corresponding want of care. Not so, however. lie possesses a splendid phys ique, a pleasant face, rather full fore head, and rather mild looking eye for \ one so keen of night. 11,* stands ceitain- ; ly over six feet high, and would weigh at least ISO pounds.

VA>COWER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JUNE -20, 1878. It is now quite certain that there is the biggest Indian war on hand in Idaho that the Government has had to contend with in many years. The hos tile tribes are rapidly concentrating, forcing unwilling tribes into the gen eral movement, and their aggregate fighting force is not far from 1.000 warriors. Opposed to them are 850 U. 8. regulars and the cattle, horses, and homes of the unarmed white set tlers. However they may come oft in a contest with the former, they are pretty sure to get away with the lat ter. Already thousands of cattle lie rotting in the valleys, killed by the noble red man, for the pleasure of kill ing, not to eat. Whole settle nts have been abandoned, and OVei 30 men have been murdered by them on the stage routes and cattle ranches. The hostilea have a secure field from attack in the mountains, from which they can issue forth on different sides to devastate the unprotected settle ments. These things might have b...

How the King Was Awakened. Weymouth was long King George Ill's favorite resort for repose ami fresh sir. He was accustomed to stroll, unattended, about tin- streets and terrace* of the lit tle watering-place, and he liberally pat ronized its theater—indeed, the good natured monarch patronized plays and players wherever he found them. In the course of one of bis afternoon walks he had been overtaken by a shower of rain, when, the door of the theater standing open, he entered, and finding no one in attendance, he quietly made bis way to the loyal box, and seated him self iv his accustomed chair. The performances of the evening, it may lie slated, were announced to be for tbe ben'lit of Mr. Blliston, and bis maj esty had promised to attend, and support, by liis presence, the elforts of tbe actor be greatly admired, Ue was a trifle fa tigued, perhaps, and the dim light of the empty theater, and the easy chair, in duced drowsiness, In a few moments the king was fast asleep.

Crook in bis campaigns against the Snakes, and has a written discharge signed by that officer, stat in"; that Buffalo Horn had rendered valuable service to the government, and is a reliable, Inmost and trust worthy Indian, and as such entitled to great consideration. Last year, against the Nez Perces, he was very active and performed many feats of bravery, for which he was compli mented by Col. Sunnier, under whom he was serving. Officers who have soon him under tiro speak of him as a very brave, cool-headed man.
