In tlie Future. What is yonder in the futun V Lift that mystic veil away; Let the morning sunlight gulden Fall on shadows grim and gray, Of the doubts and fears wo borrow, Of the death-Chill and the sorrow Hovering o'er our lives to-day. Toll us, is there not a glory In the onward-gliding years'.' Sec we not beyond tho parting, As we gase through falling tears, Fondest bones and rosy vision? Is there not some field elysiSß Which the glowiug sunlight cheers? Though we may not lift that curtain, Falling o'er our future lives, Vet we know tbe years are bringing Biefa regard from him who strives; And. w here oue day drops of sorrow Fall tn earth, upon the morrow We shall see a plant that thrives. Twelve Years of Absence. Our story is of those days, glorious iv every Frenchman's memory, when the Em per t wtu carrying liis triumphant banneri Into one alter another European Capital, — days, if they were glorious, which were lull of sorrow also; for each new victory thinned the conquering r...

The Famine in China. Tlie famine seems now to be at its worst. Tne impoverished country consists cf the greater part ol the Province of Shansi, parts of south-western Chili, West ern Sham ling, mid the northern districts of Uiinaii, comprising an area variously estimated at from 70,000 to 100,000 square miles, The greatest distress is in the southern half of Shansi, including the provincial capital, Tai Yuen, the population of which, unless rain comes at once, bids fair to become absolutely extinct. In its horrible details, us given by all witnesses, foreign and native, ollicial mid missionary, it is the direst cal amity that this or any country has been visited with. The sturdy Chinese peas ants do not calmly fold their bands and die, like our poor fellow-subjects the Madrassces, last year; they eat the dead, and when there are none to take they kill the living for the same purpose. This is p..i Oriental exaggeration, but the actual slate of things in a district not 700 miles from ...

V ANCOr VER 1N DE PEN I) N ET. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER in. 1878. The greenback party so nearly car ried the election in the State of Maine, that it has practically suc ceeded in wiping out the great He publican majority there. The Re publican party has maintained its or ganization, but the Democratic party is swallowed up by the greenback whirlwind. In Massachusetts and Pennsylvania the tide is setting in the same way. and it is evident that the Democratic party in the Eastern States is becoming extinct on the is sue of gold or greenback currency, "hard money or soft.*' It' that is to be the final issue it is very evident there will soon be no Democratic party, except on the Pacific Coast, where a soft money issue cannot ob tain foothold. To politicians the present outlook is anxious and inter esting. In this issue we publish Gen. How ard's warning to settlers not to oc cupy the proposed reservation for Moses and his Indians. With all due in respect for Gen. Howard and his noble efforts...

It is Said and. indeed, there is no reason to doubt thai the answer of tbe Russian government to the oc cupation of Cyprus has been an imme diate order to Gen. Kaufman, in Cen tral Asia, to proceed forward in execu tion of the plan of campaign prepared for him in April last. The said plan is described ns follows; L, The main body Concentrated at Samarkand to march on Djoin, a Ilu-sian I'ortilied post on the frontier of Bokhara, ami (hen advance according to further instructions, 2, The left wing, starting from Margnel lan, in the recent annexed district of Terhana. to cross the Alsi-Dagn chain, traverse tlie Kizil Son valley to the Amu-Darya basin, and io follow that stream. 3, The right wing, starting from Petro-Abraudrovsk, to ascend th river to Tohardjonl, whence a direct road leads to Bakha...

Many of our readers are aware that genuine wild hogs maybe found often in unpleasant abundance in the foot hills of the Cascades, and such is the fact, ami wo have proof in the word of two young sportsmen who have just returned from a Summer tour into the mountain fastness near tin foot of Mt. Jefferson. While sojourn ing for a time in tho vicinity of the Cole Cabin on Butte creek, ti party was made to vis.it a place known as Long Hill, ami bring a hoar, as they can be found in that vicinity almost any day in the year. TheyoungPort landers wore anxious to find anything fierce so as to show the old mountain eers how to bring down the game. The party was headed by Jason Jones, a veteran hunter with several dogs, one ol* which was a young hound iust in training. The walk was somewhat warm for the boys, yet they brought up the rear pretty well,uutil coming to tlie ravine at the foot of Long Hill. One ol' the hounds struck a deer trail ami before the leader could t al...

New York Arsenic Bating. " She is one of the arsenic outers." " Due of your patients ?" " No. I never saw her before.

And it does seemingly do so temporarily. I will tell you the sigus by- which you may know arsenic eaters.an>i you wiil be astonished at the number who are addicted to the vice. When yon see a woman with ■woolen skin and puffy eye-lids, plump and with c. milky whiteness ol com plcxion, yon may be sure that you have s ease.

VANCOUVER IN OS PES D\ UT. THURSDAY, BEPTEMBEB 36, 1878. On Thursday of last week an affray occurred in Portland between .1. K. Mercer editor of the Bet, and A. C McDonald, manager of the Tekfram, It occurred at the corner of First and Stark streets. After some words and a souffle, Mercer fired at McDonald, hit ting him twice, and McDonald tired three or four times at Mercer, missing him; bat one of the balls hit a bystander i:i the thigh. MoDouaid died next morning, from a wound in the abdomen. Meroer will be tried for murder. The \ affair is much commented upon in Port land, aud i'l whatever light it is viewed is much to be regretted; but one thing is cert ,i:t, the personal style of jour- ! nalism indulged in by both of these newspapers could result in nothing but | shame and disaster in the end. tn t'.iis issue will be found the reply ' of N\ If.
