Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. My Wile. My little wife is i ut beyond the burn, I see her parasol behind the tir. And here am I inditing Terse to her Ere she return. That pretty bird is happy there eonceal'd, This fragrant chamber smiles a peaceful smile— What joy to sing the joys of home- the while My joy's atit id ! My spouse is mild she's mci kas any nun. And yet her spiritual calm is such * * * Somehow one's always feeling she is much Too good for one. She thinks I'm wise and handsome —'tis mr em d, I wondtr am I either ! On my word Sometimes I've wondered "an' my bonnls bird" Think so indeed: Perhaps. lor the my homage ne'er repels; Perhaps I might have loved her half a life, Perhaps—had she hut seen the Utile wife Of some one else. Hut why should I complain of cross erearos? While entertaining her i who won't com plain It may i c lan angel entertain —And unawares. — Comiiili Megattne, Opening of the Pari...

Mr. Jones Declines an Office Worth Only 810,000 a Year. That any one should decline an cfSce worth $10,000 v year, especially in such dull limes aa these, can Dot but excite surprise. How many highly competent men would l>o gladdened liy the oiler of even one-quarter the salary 1 This, in deed, is the first time in memory that such a berth has been declined in New York, and tlie fact that Geoige Jones can not afford to sell his time lor $10,000 a year shows how much money he is making in journalism. Thirty years ago Jones was glad to cam one-tenth of that sum. He was then living in Albany, and was an agent for Moses Y. Beach, who published the dun and carried on a small banking, or rather note-shaving, concern. Beach was the only man that united financial and editorial life, aud no doubt Jones learned from his example that no man can excel in two things at the same time. Hence he declines the Police Oommfssionerahip and $10,000 a year. Beach made money, but he would have made mor...

VAXCOIVEU IXDEPEXDEN T. THUIIsIUV, JULY IS, 1878. The effect of tho Indian war is al ready apparent in the check upon im migration into the country east of the mountains, which has ceased entirely. The tide has set iv the other way. and hundreds of families are coming down, many of them never to return. With the loss of stock, crops, money, and immigration, the eastern portion of Or egon is set hack for yean in its pro gress. The Territory is not yet .so soii ously affected, but certainly would be damaged to an equal extent should the hostile* carry their depredations north of the Columbia river. If the mana gers of Indian affaire at Washing ton could now take a trip up the Co lumbia their eyes would be somewhat opened as to the fallacy and wrongs of the present mode of governing the In dians. The press of San Francisco are be coming more generous than was for merly the custom. The ('/ironic''' puts it thusly, thereby acknowledging that the North Pacific has some advantages over the...

A Visit to the Hoot ami Shot' Factories of Lynn. Nowhere in tbe wholeof New England has machinery asserted lt« superiority over manual labor to such a startling ex tout us in this city of Lynn, to-day the greatest shoe manufacturing place in the world. There is hardly in the entire range of boot and shoe making, with its numerous details, a siugle thing to l>e done but a machine stands ready to do it, so that iv some factories which I have visited to-day nothing remains for human hands to do but to put the strings in the ladies' or misses' shoes. Is it a wonder, then,that Europeans begin to believe,not so much in American shoes, but in Amer ican shoe machinery, which they now purchase as fast as they hear of the new inventions, take them to their respective localities aud pro luce what they call an American shoe) Only last week a steamer left 11 is ton with no less than fifty of these machines, most of which are manufactured iv the State of Massa chusetts.

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County. Wash ington Territory. Smile Whenever You Can. When things don't go to suit yon, And the world seems up.-ido down, Don't waste your time in fretting, But drive away that frown; inoc life is oft perplexing, "Tis much the wisest plan To bear all trials bravely, Aud smile whene'er you can. Why should you dread to-morrow. And thus despoil to-day? For when you borrow- trouble, You si ways have to pay. It is a good 1.1 maxim, Which should be often preached Don't cross the bridge before you Until ths bridge is reached. Ton might be spared much sighing, If you would keep in mind The thought that good and evil Are always here Combined. There must be something wanting. And though you roll in wealth. You may miss from your casket That precious jewel—health. And though you're strong and sturdy, You may have au empty purse, |An earth has many trials Which I consider worse'; But whether joy er sorrow Fill np your rn...

VANCO 1 VEB INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 25, IS7S. The l'ort Townsead Ptsmt, which has boon sued (or libel by Governor Ferry, has ;i big job on hand to defend itself, as it finds all but two or three of the newspapers in the Territory to tight, as well as the Governor and his friends. However, it wades in very pluekily, determined to make a good fight for itself, and sayi many hard things about those who have con demned its course in this matter, but if its remarks about all the others con tain no more truth than what it says of this paper, the Prtm will never draw any prises for truth telling.

A "Little Nuisance." lIT MISS M. VI. ELDKIDQE. Katey Letter was only six years old. 9he was a handsome, healthy child, full of spirits and vitality, which may explain her persistent affinity for torn frocks, mud puddles, and dirty hands aud face. Her mamma, who went iv lor "oe.thetics." was shocked, every day, atid every hour of the day, at which she called the child's "Tom-hoy tastes." Perhaps, if Mrs. Les ter had devoted a little more time to her offspring, had been a little more sympa thetic with Katey, the latter Would have been different. But while the "line lady" mother was raving about Ceramics, or taking le -on. in art decoration, the poor child was left lo ainusu herself as she best might. Katey, indeed, had but one friend, her young uncle Tom, a collegian at home for the summer; lor Mr. Lester was to > much absorbed in business to bo able to givcany time to Ids little daughter. As for her mother, Mis. Letter's exclama tion, repealed a dosen limes each day, was, "do go a...

Certain facts have also recently come to the surface, which render it necessary for us, as an in. dependent journalist, to warn the people of this district ot the futility of the candidacy of Mr. Struve, as these matters of record show that he is clearly ineligible to the position which he seeks.
