Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAFZK OF CITT AltD COUNTY TaacouTcr, Clarke County , Wtlh ington Territory. '• riie Hot Season." At last two Fahrenhetts blew up, And killed two children small, And one barometer shot dead A tutor with its ball. Now nil day loog the locusts sang Among the leaflets trees; Tbreenew boteU warped inside out — The pumps could only wliec/.e; And ripe old wine, 'hat twenty years Had cobwebbed o'er in vain. C ame spouting through tbe rotten corks Like July's best champagne. The Worcester locomotives did Their trips in half an hour; The Lowell cars ran forty miles Before they cheeked their power; Roll brimstone soon became a drug, Aud locofocos fell, All asked for Ice, but everywhere Saltpeter was to sell. Plump men of mornings ordered tights, But ere the Scorching noons, Their candle molds had grown v* loose As Cossack pantaloons! The dog* ran mad—men could not try If water they would choose; A horse fell dead—he only left Four red-hot, rusty shoes! And all ab...

"i'or him, soft carpets and pictured walls, A life of ease in his spacious halls." The clang of bells on his dreaming broke; A flicker of tlame, a whirl of smoke.

Emancipation iv Russia. The good work of emancipation was rcserveil for the present Emperor, Alex ander 11. His accession to the throne of the Itussius, in 1855, was hailed with gladness hy the poor peasants. By one of tliose divine inspirations of expecta tion which animate a long oppressed people when the day of deliverance is nigh, they felt sure that the day of their redemption was at hand. They were not mistaken. The nobles pleaded and pro tested ; the landlords cursed their slaves and delied their king. But the Emperor was too calm to be disturbed, too linn to he intimidated. Cod hail created him equal to the occasion. He pacified his nobles by kind words; he warned the landlords by vigorous acts. When they saw that emancipation was soon to be a fact they shouted, "Liberty without land;" but he replied with Imperial au thority, "Liberty and land." lie knew that freedom without the means of living would be a fatal gilt. The excitement was intense; the con troversy was bitter. P...

One night there came a fearful storm. A solitary Apache, unarmed, ami with nothing but a blanket to protect him from the cold rain, climbed over the corral wall:...

Ho then passed through and out of the town, a distance of two miles, concluding the devil was in his clothing, and that Josus had commis sioned him to go into the church as baked as he had come into the world. He pulled off his clothing, and in a state of nature started back on a dead run, followed by the constantly in creasing multitude of people, who failed to overtake him.
