Tancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AMD COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash injfton Territory. Love Unsung. dnide on, sweet purling stream, And mingle with the sea; Adown each glen thy water ) gleam. In merry dance and fr Sing on, sweet bird; the blue expanse Of heaven's vault is thine; • lap thy soul iuto a trance; Poor forth thy song divine; But I must not give forth my strain; I love a maid, but love in vain. The blithesome bird that haunts ths vale Will bear but half her grief; ■ Hhe floats her sorrow on tho gale, And gives her soul relief; The meanest floweret on the field Basks iv the noon-day sun; And every creature hath a rest. When daily toil ia done; I to myself make bootless moan, And bear oij burden all alono. A urn I' that links two hearts in bliss, Ia but a hidden treasure; What's but a thorn when singly borne. When shared becomes a pleasure; The finer feelings of the soul Are known by mutual union; Such spirit hath its counterpart, With whom to hold communi...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1878. The first serious attack that has been made upon the Constitutional convention of the Territory, now iv session, comes from the woman suf fragists and they are after the mem bers, body, boots and breeches. The Convention had hardly time to organ - ize before it was flooded with petitions to strike out the odious word "male" from the constitution, (yet unformed), and this deluge was followed by v vigorous attack by the Oregon apostle in person, who, by timely action and persistence will pound into the new constitution all that is possible to get into it ofthe importance ofthe average woman of Oregon. The attack was so sudden and so furious that one of the members was taken without re- Btatenoe and either in his delightful innocence or in a feeling fit of deep sar casm ottered a resolution that the Oregon lady should be at once ad mitted as a member of the conven tion, where site could sit ami make the constitution to suit herself with o...

Baugh, William Brockie, an<l Thro lure Justice, these being actively assisted by Stephen N. Wiuslow, Chair man of the General Committee, ami the ' Secretary, George G. I'ierie. Some time before the steamer started there was put aboard by members of the committee cue basket of champagne, a case of brandy and a case of whisky. Subsequently there were added to this two baskets of " Blue Seal," paid for by three or four gentlemen.

Old Draff. Some said he was a misir with barrels of money bid away ; Others that hu hadn't a cent wherewith to bless himself; ami still others, of more romantic turn, voted him a hermit; but the sum total of ab solute knowledge touching Old Draff was that he was odd, old and ugly—ioie seedy garments, and lived iv a seedy looking cottage on a high bluff overlook ing the river. To thoughtless b <ys, of the cla-s ready to torment anything helpless, from a worn-out horse to an orphan kitten. Old Drafl" offered especial attraction. They would boot ami jeer at him on the -tieet; inquire the address of his tailor; and mock him in so many ways that it was plain they bad no fear of she-bears before their eyes. Ooe <lay Hairy Turner, and several other urchins alike sportively inclined, hit upon anew plan -one, at least, which they hadn't tried before—of having a little fun out of Old Draff. It was to tie a rope across the path along which he was accustomed to take his evening walk, and ...

Grafting Grape Vines. A correspondent of the Fruit Recorder says: "It is a well-known fact that grapes that are a success in one locality arc entirely worthies in another. Hence it is often desirable to change a few vines or even a whole vineyard with as little loss us possible. This can he done b] grafting, and have the new vines come in bearing the following year. Keep the scions in a cool place where the buds will start as little as possible, until the first flow of sap is over. This will be when the first leaves have pushed out of the size of your thumb nail on the vines to be grafted. Then dig down beside the vine; selecting a root of suitable size, say as large as your finger, cut it off four inches under ground and cleft-graft the same as for apples; tic the graft snugly into tbe cleft with cotton twine, using no wax, as that would form a cup to hold the sap which would sour and kill the graft. Brace it up straight with a stick or anything which will bold it in place, and til...

Walla Walla lias a crazy school master, proved by the following item from the Watchman of June iHst: Last Tuesday, Smithy, eldest son of Capt, P. X Johnson, and favorite pu pil of Prof. Lamarshe's school, struck a little mint, while at school. Just before recess lie gathered up his l>ooks to put them tinder the desk like a good boy, but he met with an obstruc tion. He stooped down to see what he struck, and 10, there \\ :is a can, tilled with $598 in gold coin. He went out and showed it to the boys on the play ground and of course the glittering coin created quite a commo tion among the young folks. The Pro fessor did not fail to notice it, ami as certaining the cause, claimed the coin, and to prove property beyond a shadow of a doubt, he said to one of the boys: "look in the stove and you will find so much silver in a pitcher," and he went and he found the mentioned amount. Then said he to another: "go to my desk and you will find so much there in greenbacks," and lie went and f...

A decisive movement was theex pedition of Major J. A.

Howard's forces have had two sharp brushes with the Indians, destroying camps, stores, and provisions, in considerable quitnti tities, but few Indians being killed in till the lights.

Use London Dust.Man. There he goes! A dusky gloom hangs over the roofs of great London city, a similar gloom fills my room and seems to have touched all the furniture with smoky age, and as I look down from the window into the gloomy street, I see him coming along slowly, and crying i in a voice like a plea for help in afflic tion: "Dnst-oh!—dust-oh!—dnst-oh!" When the London fog is gray we can not see him very far off, for he, too. is gray from head to foot with ash-dust, and as he approaches ns he comes out of the mist like a phantom, though in reality he is a substantial, square-built, deep-chested fellow, shod with enor mow Buleher shoes (the soles of which are bright with nails), and clad in n loose blouse and trousers that are tied up about the knees. Tho blouse is open at the chest, and is lifted to the waist by his big, brown hands, which are tucked in his trouser pockets, and his head is covered by the kind of hat that sailors call a sou'wester.

I tried him at everything that falta to tho lot of a sailor, and though raised in a salt water region ho failed at all. On our way back wo arrived off the mouth of the river (a very wide one) about mid night, and as the wind was very light, and a strong "ebb tide," I anchored with my sails up. A large schoonor was lying ahead of me, at anchor, and was tho only visible thing. Now, thinks I, is the time to Rettlo with my "green" (?) passenger. He was in tho cabin "dead" (asleep). The crew "went be low," and "turned in." I waited till everything ...
