Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Wash ins-ton Territory. Vanished. UY mini ALICE SBOWSI, Ho star hath fallen from the sky, The uioon burns on with equal flame; Aud yet the nights are not the same- Sweet nights we knew in Mays gone by. Preen hlHoek, can you tell ma why ? The young dawn blossom* just as fair Along the hills; and yet I know Some grace she wore a year ago Hath darkened into empty air I Ureeu hillock, can you tell me where? From grove and woodland, far and near, A thousand soft, harmonious notes Pour from a thousand joyous throats— And yet, ah me! I wait to hear The sweetest singer of the year I Of all tlie daisies oti the lea I miss no little shining face; Where lurks the charm, tho vanished grace. That made the fields so fair to see? Ureeu hillock, can you answer me? Green hillock, whitening day hy day. Low hillock where the daisies run Between her fair face and the sun, I kuow what glory of the May With my lost darling ...

Tho New York Police on Duty. Every street aud broad alley in the city is divided into a series of •'posts" or "beats," patrolled by a 9ingle officer, which vary in length according to the locality, some in tlie northern part of the island being many blocks in length, while others iv the lower wards are scarcely two blocks long, and arc intersected by other posts. Besides this, officers are statirmed at much-frequented cornets and street-crnßsings,at railway stations, steam boat landings, wharves, ferries, places of amusement, iv the municipal offices, nnd elsewhere on special duty. It is common cant that a policeman is always present— except when wanted. In the lower part of New York this is more slang than sense. How far will 30U walk in the re gion of Canal street, for example, before meeting a policeman—that is, if you look for one, for it is his policy to remain in conspicuous? Lower Broadway, dim and gloomy at midnight, is full of police, furiously shaking the handles of the do...

V AXCOIV EI INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, AUGUST 9& LB7& It is haril to toll just how trumps are made. There are undoubtedly a great number of causes for this rapidly grow ing curse to our country. Hut wo know how they are helped along, how many of them are made, ami how they are encouraged to continue in their course of idleness and crime. There are certain newspapers, and certain demagogues, "greenback" orators, work ingman'a advocates, who have much re sponsibility in this matter, hoping to ride into power or popularity on the fu rore created by their false teachings. They bespeak forlazy loafers and tramps compassion because they are "poor," and tell them that their condition re sults from a conspiracy of property ladders, capitalists, against labor. They never once hint to them that their con dition is the result ot their own indo lence and slothfulr.ess. They are told that every property holder is a Shy lock, bloated bond-holder, a despicable capitalist. They deride those who...

Suuday in Ensrlaiul. One of the jolliest sights to be seen on Sunday, is, a wagon with the family, bound foi a day in the country. Them is the husband, the wife, the baby—and quite often two babies —and from three to a dozen children of nil ages, size- and sexes, peeked In like herring, and all aglow with excitement and anticipation I l"nder the seat is a basket, plethoric with sandwiches, cold chicken, bottles of beer aud a flask of choice old brandy. Away they go, rattling cheerily over the London pavements! A proud man is paterfamiliiu as he draws the reins over his powerful nag and dexterously touches him up occasionally with a flick from a whip, long and imposing enough for a six-in-haud turnout. A proud mother is materfumilias as she admires the horse manship of her husband, and adjusts tbe multifarious white wrappings of the chubby, blue-eyed flaxen-haired baby. Proud are the older children as they ex ercise a commanding over sight id" the youuget ones, whose bats are ever ge...

Russian Woman. The subjoined extract from an article iv the Contemporary Jlieieic gives a curl out revelation of the status of women iv Russia formerly and ai the present time. If it is correct, the query will arise in the mind of the tender whether the women in Russia ha\c been benefited by tho change: "The idealization of woman, and tin type of devoted and submissive love on the part of man, were equally unknown in Muscovy until Peter the Great forci bly opened the tereme, or private apart ments of women, where they were kept in something like Oriental confinement. The ancient Slavs considered woman a malign being, an Incarceration of the evil spirit, that could not be sufficiently guarded against. The Tartars, under whose dominion Russia lay for many centuries, saw in her hut an inferior be ing, the instrument of their pleasures, and these ideas could not hut exercise an in fluence on her late. The reform abruptly introduced in private and Social lite by Peter the Great, and the ...

VANCOU VER IN DEPEIS DENT. fHUBSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, iSTS. Slowly the facts are leaking out about Wilbur's "good Indians." Soon after the time of Major Kress' attack on the Indians crossing; the Columbia Wilbur made a howl about peace able Indians being disturbed in this ruthless manner, that they were not hostiles, but had been oil* gathering toots, etc. In that attack onolndinu was known to be wounded and car- I ried off Uy his comrades. That Indian is now with Wilbur's Indians recov ering from his wounds, nnd proves \ to be a Bannack. Now it certainly shows extremely discriminating marksmanship on the part of Major Kress' men to hit the only bad Indian in that crowd of forty of fifty icram bling Op the bluff on that occasion. -\ private letter from the Yakima lo acltty has been shown us, front a per* ■on whose statements we can rely upon implicitly, that at the time Per kins and his wife were missing, Wil bur was appealed to for men to send in search of them.

\n Era For a New Poet, Tlie death of one of the oldest poets suggests the curious thought, that there are no young singers to take the places of such venerable bards as Whittler, Dana, Emerson, Longfellow, and Walt Whit man, who must iv tho course of nature soon follow Bryant. And when Holmes and Lowell depart in the fulness of years, their death will threaten the close of au era in American literature. It is true there are minor poets of promise, 'ike Howells and Stcdmau, but they are both advanced into middle age and have not yet made a distinct impression on the Consciouness of their generation. They have grown up in the shadow of the earlier race of poets, and seem to have been obscured from the sunshine of pop ular favor and stunted in their growth by the "harpers hoar" of our primeval liter ature. The time is thoroughly ripe for a strong original genius. The people have grown somewhat weary of the old songs, and though they have not ceased to love aud honor the singers, they s...

Before the Indian raids Messrs. Murphy had in John Day valley a band of 3,000 sheep, which were said to have been among the best in Ore gon, and were intimated to be worth in the neighborhood of $10,000. Of these but 200 are left, the rest having been killed by the Indians. In one pile there were not less than 600, some with their throats cut, others with their legs cut off at the knees, and others with their ham-strings cut. P. R. Murphy, one of the owners, was among the first killed iv Umatilla county. A herder by the name of Gentry was killed at the same time. P. P.. Murphy leaves a wife and three children in San Francisco. What It Really Is.—Pigweed is because it is; or, more properly speak ing, the procine qualifications of the sagebrush soil produce certain elitnin ative conditions, which, acting on the chemical properties of the negative forces of the climatic influences, as op posed to the astronomical deviations of the positive poles, effect a contra distinction which, in t...

Wyoming. The massacre at Wyoming Is one of the best known incidents of the Revolution, and its centennial commemoration aroused considerable public interest. The event is one ol the most painful in our revolutionary history. It came of civil war, aud it had all the repugnant features of such an unnatural content. There were few Indiana comparatively in the hostile, array. Of the murderous gang who brought tire and death to 'hat thriving settlement, only three hundred out of sixteen hundred were really Indi ans, and the rest Tories, painted after the Indian fashion. The commander of the invaders was Colonel John Butler, a Con necticut Tory, while second in command of the defenders was Colonel Zebulon Butler, a cousin of John. Hostilities, which culminated in the massacre, hail for a long time been conducted in a cruel and remorseless way. There had been a season of killing, of scalping, and of mangling. This will be better under stood when it is stated that ou the 4th of July the ene...
