NICELY TRAPPED. A girl, young and pretty, and above till gifted with an air of admirable candor, lately presented herself belote a l'arisiuu lawyer.

You must remain on three occasions alone with him ; you can then go before u judge aud swear that he is your lover." •' And that will suffice, Monsieur ?"

" Persevere in your design, uiwdamoi. sclle, hut the next tune you eoinc to con. suit iue, nive mo the name of the young man you are p>ing to make m> happy in spite of himself." A fortnight afterwards, the young lady knocked at tin; door of the counsel's room. No sooner was she in than she fluiifr herself into a chair, saying, that the walk hud made Iter breathless, ller counsel tried to reassure her, tuade her inhale salts, and even proposed to unloose her garments. " It is useless, monsieur," she said, " I am mueh better." " Well, now tell me the name of the for tunate mortal." *• Well, then, the fortunate mortal, be it known to you, is yourself," said the yuung beauty, bursting into a you, and 1 have bceu hero three tiii.es tete-a-tcte with you, and my four witucsses are below, ready and willing to accompany me to a magistrate," gravely continued the narrator. The lawyer thus caught had the good sense not to get angry. The most singu. lar fact of all is, thut he adores his young wife who makes a most excellent house keeper. THE ARCTIC RAFT.—Tho Alaska Her. aid says: "The ingeniously constructed India rubber raft, on which Mr. Octave Pavy proposes to trivvl in the Arctic wa ters, iu search of the North Pole, is com posed of four keelshaped cylinders, fast ened together on the decks by wooden «iats, to which the uccessary masts and rigging are attached. It was designed by the iuventor as a life boat, to be carried ou vessels used in ease of fire or shipwreck. It is so small tn it it oocupies very littlo room—iu fact, Mr. Pavy carries his in a barrel. Such a rait cannot be capsized, and will float in tho severest storm.

Near Steilacoom, Washington Territory, there is a little island, who.se traditionary name is ttattno. A narrow channel separ ates it from the mainland, and at the ebb and flow of the tide tho water rushes through tuniulttiously, Tho inland is loop: aud not very wide, and is covered by a for est that count* its years by centuries. Hundred* of Summers have poured the fervor of their seasons into its stately growth ; hundreds of Winters have dow c.ed it with sturdiness and endurance. Its strip of beach is strewn with soft, gray stones, wave-worn into curious forms. Tl»e chartu of legend lingers about these stones. Many generations ago, there lived in the vicinity of Stcilacoum a Xisqually ehiet', brave and powerful. lie had many horses und a letinue of slaves, the unhappy trophies of his victories in war. Hut the pride ol his heart and of the tribe, was his daughter, whoso surpassing beauty brought her many suitors. In vain they rehearsed before her stories of their prowess, and brought her robes of choicest beaver skins, glisteuing stones, itulc trinkets ami brace lets of strango shells, flowers and berries and trophies of their t kill in hunting and fishing. Everything that a despairing wooer eoulJ hope would win him a tender thought, was Lid before her in humblest homage. SiiO was kind to all, but only kind ; her heart was untouched. She was a gentle mistress and the ser vice of her slaves was oue of love. They were her merry attendants, aud her un troubled heart asked nothing that their coiupuuiotiship could not supply. Uucon scious of the distractions wrought by her beauty aud her obduracy, she lived in per fect coutent iu her father's lodge. ISut one day there appeared among them a stranger, handsomer than any that had ever visited them. He was tall and mus cular, his eyes were keeu, his voice sonor 011*. At evening, around the fire ; ho un folded narratives of adventurous deeds iu the strange country from which he came. From his eyes darted imperious glances. There was a power in his rude eloquence and impressive pantomime that delighted his grave, undemonstrative audience. 'J heir reserve melted before the charm of his nnutier. Even Uattao, the Tyec's daughter, was enthralled. In his presence she was happy ; away from him an unfa miliar disquietude possessed her. Togeth er they threaded the intricacies of the som bre forest; on the beach they watched the lapping waves, aud o'er the bluc,,flashing waters their eancc bore them lightly to the little island. llere Battao listened to words that be-! fore had fallen on a heedless ear; now they 1 quickened her heart with new emotion. ' Hut one day, as she sat on the shore of tho ! mainland, her lover pacing listlessly for-! ward and buck, her quick ear missed his ! footsteps. She saw him fearlessly walking the pathless waters, then vanish from her anguished gaze into a thick wall of mist that enveloped the islaud. It drifted away bel'oro the morning breeze, but tho sea kept its own secret, and her empty heart had for itself DO comfort. Her com panions vainly tried to interest her in the puerile amusements of other days. Her happiness was in the past and her ooly solace in recalling that past. A strange charm drew her to this island. She felt less lonely here; her lost lover seemed nearer; his tones sounded in her ear ind memory, with tender faithfulness revived each happy hour. While she sat absorbed in reverie, *ho scooped the sands of the beach into her hand and sifted them thro* her brown fingers. Thoy moulded as they fell into a tiny band, an arm, or foot ; into fishes, rabbits and birds. She seemed unconscious of the uiagio and followed her careless toying till they lay thickly strewn along the shore. One day as her canoe sped over the waves, it was mysteriously arrested, de. taiued as by a giant's grasp.' The efforts of her slaves were futile; they frantically plied their paddles, but the canoe was as motionless as a stranded shell. Leaning over the edge of the canoe, she saw be. neath the water tho smiling face of her beloved. Extending her arms she begged him to come up to her, but that ho could not do; he could come baek to earth no more, he said. They talked together a long time. lie told her all the wonders of his caverned home, and while she listened to bis familiar voice her heart waxed glad j but when he begged her to come to him, OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 8, 1872. it grew cold with drcud. Stronger though than fear was ldvc. She bade her slaves go back and tell her father that in five days she would return. Then she leaped into the waters and thff cireliug eddy hid her from their view. Waking the echoes with their shrill lamentations, they pad. died swiftly to shore. The whole tribe abandoned themselves to the extravagan ces of savage mourning, but in fire days it was turned to wildest joy, for the sea gave up iis prisoner. Her love for her kindred seemed unchanged, and her time was di vided betweeu her father's lodge and her mysterious home beneath the waves. Sumo gracious enchantment kept for her the sparkle and freshness of youth, while those who were young with her, aged and dropped out of the ranks of the living till their generation was only a memory, faint and fast passing to oblivion. As they disap peared, she too withdrew herself from l.er earthly haunts, though she did not forget those she left. She gave warning of every storm, rising beautiful and fearless alovo the sea, a thing but half-human. Those who saw tho spectre standing amid the curling waves, plied their paddles to reach the shore before the storm should engulf them. She was not always inves'ed w.th mists and gray clouds. Sometimes her phantom was discerned when the sea was serene and sparkling with the brightness ef a lair day, and that betokened the death of some of the tribe by drowning. She has not been seen for many years; not since the whites came, and this tradition and the stones that still strew the beach of island named for her are all that are vouch safed us. Apart from its inherent charm, this leg end of the Tyeo's daughter suggests Pros, crpino and her divided life, one half the year on earth with her mother, one half iu the dark realm of the King of Hades. It calls before us the nymphs and naiads of of those fabled days, and Uudino, the lovely waif, the water sprite, Mho paints for us " a region of light and beauty, where lofty coral trees glow with blue and crim -B'ju fruits in their gardens, where the in habitauts walk bcucath resounding domes of crystal over the pure sand of the sea." We strongly feel the kinship of mind, when from its creatious, Sicilian meadows, a German fisher's hut, aud the remote North Western forests, can each leud its figure to a group eudowed with so many points of likeuess that I'roscrpinc, Undine, and the dusky Battao stand in our mental camera, a trio of sisters. 11. WHERE TIIE GOLD GOES. —In tho reign of Dariua gold was thirteen tiuies more valuable, weight for weight, than silver. Iu the time of Plato it was twelve times more valuable, lu the time of Julius Coesar it was ouly nine times more valua ble, owing, perhaps, to the enormous quantities of gold seized in his wars. It is a natural question to ask— what became of the gold and silver? A paper read before the Polytechnic Asso ciation by Dr. Stevens, recently, is calcu lated to uiect this inquiry. He says of our annual gold product, fully fifteen per cent, goes to Europe; twenty.fivo pet cent. to Cuba; fifteen per cent, to Brazil; five per cent, direct to Japan, China, and the Indies, leaving but five per cent, for circulation in this country. Of that which goes to Cuba, tho West Indies and Brazil, fully fifty per cent, finds its way to Europe, where, deducting a large per centage used in manufacturing, four.fifths of the re mainder is exported to India. Here the transit of the precious metal is at an end. Here the supply, however vast, is absorbed, and never returns to tho civilized world. The Orientals consume but little, while their productions have ever been in de mand among Western nations. As mere recipients, these nations have acquired the desire of accumulation and hoarding, a fashion common alike to all classes among tho Egyptian, Chinese and Persians. A French economist says, in his opinion, the former nation alone can hide 820,000,000 of gold and silver annually, and tho pres ent Emperor of Morocco is reported as so addicted to this avaricious mania, that he has seventeen large chambers with the precious metals. The passion of princes, it is not surprising that the same spirit is shared by their subjects, and it is in this predilection that we discover tho solution of :he problem as to tho ultimate disposi. tion of the precious metals. This absorp. tion by tbo Eastern nations, has been un interruptedly going on since the most historic period. Aoeording to Pliny, as much as f 100,000,000 in gold was in his dav, annually exported to the East. The balance of trade in favor of those nations is now given at $80,000,000. t#" A young Indianan " proposed" to •is young ladies just for fun, and was con siderably annoyed by being accepted by all of them. AN OREGON LEAP YEAR INCIDENT. We all know that during leap year the ladies enjoy certain privileges which are not vouchsafed to them at other times, but very few of the dear creatures ever pluck up the necessary courage to use the "rights" guaranteed. We, however, have been informed of a case which occurred in tliia town a few days ago where an ethe | real young damsel of Washington county, i grasped her priviledge with a vigor and went-te work determined to he a married woman, or know why she couldn't Ik>> A young man hid been calling on her for ! several months, and as ho hadn't popped the delicate question or made sign, she concluded to bring him up with a round turn. Making all things ready, she in formed the young man she w*s going to visit Portland on business and would be very glad to have him accompany her. Of course his modesty forbade him to de cline the invitation, and on the cars the two came to town. After their arrival at the St Charlei, they then went out to see the sights. Finally the young lady reached the court house and enquired for the Clerk's office, which was shown her. Entering the office she caught sight of "Jccms" the affable and accommodating deputy, who advanced to the counter, and addressing the young gcutlcman asked if he desired anything. " No, I dont't want nothin," but I guess she does. Just come along with her, and I'm doggon'd ef I know what she wants." " Jecuis" turned to the young lady, whom he addressed in his blandest tones, and desired to know what ho could do for her. " Whv. I want a marriage license, to be sure. For what else does a young woman come hero ?" The question asked in return was one that " Jeems" did not answer, and he im mediately set about preparing to supply the fair visitor with the desired document. " Whafis the name of the bridegroom ?" asked " Jeems," pen in hand. " Come. John, speak up and tell your name to the gentleman." " Why I don't want to set married, and I don't want to get no license!" replied John while hi* face blanched. " Pshaw. I know better. You have been courting me for nearly a year and its got to etui sooner or later, and it isn't worth while Waiting; go (oil the srentleuian your name, that's a "rood fellow !" •Tnhii finally blurted out his name like a frightened seltool.boy, and in a twiukling it was writteu in the license, which was duly sealed and handed over to the fair one, who paid the fee, aud taking her intended by the hand she led him away, after ascertaining where a minister could be found.— Portland Bulletin. TAMMANY SOCIETY. —This venerable organization, which by the recreancy of a few of her Sachems had acquired a bad name, has determined to reorganize. The plunderers have been expelled from the temple, and those who are attached to Democratic principles, uuder the call of Grand Saclicm Schell, were notified to meet on February tho 2Gth at Tammany Hall. They include the uiost prominent Democrats in tho Union.

UNIFORMS FOR GIRLS. —A writer in Scribner's Monthly does not know why it is not just as well for school girls to dress in uniforms as for boys. There are many excellent schools in England where the girls dress in uniform throughout the en tire period speut in their education. By dressing iu uniform the thoughts of all the pupils arc released from the consideration of dress; there is no show of wealth, and no confession of poverty. Girls from widely separated localities and classes come together and stand or fall by scholarship, character, disposition and manners. The term of study could be lengthened by the use of the uioncy that would thus be saved; and while a thousand cousidcra. tions favor such a change, wo are unable to thiuk of one that makes against it. These reflections are suggested by tho fact thxt in somo of our schools the mere item of dress for young ladies is often over ono thousand dollars a year. MT General B- F. Butler is a delogate to the Philadelphia Convention, and in structed to vote for Grant. In 1867 he wrote to Mr. W. Jones, Xeanah, Wis., that " Grant's election will be a misfortune, because it will put ia a man without a head or heart, indifferent to human suffer* ing, and impotent to govern." tUT A farm of four hundred acres in England is kept by a woman, to whom the royal Agricultural Society gave its highest premium last season for genera! excellence and system. CATTLE RAISING IN TEXAS. Cattle raising in Texas is characterized by features peculiar to that State. The. business is principally in tho hands of comparatively a few men, who conduct their operations on a scale of great magni tude. In 1*00,10.000 head of cattlo con stituted a large stock; now 25,000 and 30,000 are not uncommonly owned by one man, while in the brands of some individ uals are included as many as 50,000 or 00,000. It is said that an unassuming Irishman named Tom O'Conner, living iu Refugio county, is the largest cattle owner in Texas. He does not know precisely how many he owns, but his stock is esti. mated at about OJ,OOO. Iu Texas when a calf is weaned from its dam and cannot be identified .13 the property of anybody, it becomes tho chattlc of whoever first brands it. This gives a great advautage to the large owners, as small stock raisers are not able to employ the necessary labor to keep their stock branded up, and what I hey lose usually becomes incorporated in the herds of wealthier men.* During the war, when nearly all tho able-bodied uicn in tho State were either in the Confeder ate army or driven to take refuge in Mex ico, the wealthy stock owners employed Mexican vanqueros, who were exempt from the draft, to look after their herds, while the cattle belonging to poOr men strayed wherever they liked. Tho con sequence was that the small stocks became to a great extent absorbed in the larger ones. Over one million cattle were shipped or driven from Texas during the past year, but the trade is in a very depressed condition now. Owing to the low rates paid iu the Northern markets, a great pro portion of the droves started last year have becu held over and wintered iu Kansas, waiting improvement iu prices. Several million dollars'worth of cattle, it is esti mated, have been stolen and driven over tho lino into Mexico by organized bands of thieves, who have pursued their rob beries with impunity. The Mexican Gov. nrnmcnt has notoriously encouraged these raids. Our own Government has done nothing worth mention to guard against them, but has been energetic to prevent tho Texans from following the robbers aerOS! *'»« lino. No end of petitions for prelection against thete robberies have been sent to Washington. In answer to thetu Grant withdrew troops from Texas and scut them to New Orleans to overawe a Republican Convention which he feared was unfriendly to his personal interests. tey* Seven months ago, Chicago was a!- most obliterated from the fuco of the earth by one of the mast terrible conflagrations of modern tiuies; one who saw it then would hardly recognize it now. The rap idity with which it has been rebuilt is marvellous ; the unsightly ruins made by fire are almost entirely replaced by tine blocks of buildiogs, more substantial and beautiful than those which occupied their sites, and the value of property is rapidly rising in all parts of tho city. On Wa bash avenue and in Jackson, Adams, Mon roe, and Jefferson streets, the prico of land has airanced from SI,OOO per front foot to S 1.200, and in some instances to 51.500. The Grand Pacific Hotel is the finest and largest of the new buildings, and his 500 rooms; it is rebuilding on its old site and will cost one million dollars. The Republican Life Insurance building, which was badly damage 1 by the fire, is rebuilding with stone, iron and brick, and the many public edifices in process of erection will make Chicago a much finer and better city than it ever was before. As may readily be believed, in all build, injrs great precautions aro taken against danger of fire, Chicago being a ' burnt child." A NEW WAY or PUTTING IT. —Rev. Thorns R. Beechcr, a brother of H. W. 8., of Plymouth Church, but who is a very different Beecber, presides over a church at Eltnira, N. Y. . Recently, in an address, he said: " I hear a knock at one of tho doors of my house ; I answer the summons, and see before me a man with a face and head swollen with «jnall-pox in its worst and most malignant form. He holds iu his hand a fair and beautiful white lily, which he offers me. I tell him I love the lily itself, but I cannot take it, owing to the very peculiar circumstances under which it is offered. And so the liepulicau party—corrupt and festering as it is— comes to mo and hold out its platform and says it is a pure and good one, made up of morality and justice and all that, but I do not feel like taking it from such a source." D.> NOT RIDICULE CHILDREN.—ChiId, ren often stem to say very absurd things, for which they are ridiculed or abashed. Nothing, however, oao be more cruel than this, for the child has merely done what many a philosopher has done before him —jumped to a wrong conclusion; and if instead of being; ridiculed and made to distrust himself, and avoid the venturing his littlo speculations before us ia future, had we been at the trouble of examining his notions, we should see how naturally, perhaps, the idea had arisen, or how in. geniously, through a lack o! knowledge, the little mind hud put together incongru ous things. Mr Duke Alexia is expected in San Francisco next September. He is now in China. > WHOLE NO. 604. TRUTHS FOR OUR GIRLS. Almost every newspaper or periodical we take up contaius some kind of advice to young women, until you must, be tired of the theme. Much is said that is excel lent, but before you rely upon its iiupliei. ty, I wish you would notice whether it ia the advice i>f a man or woman. Neither sex can understand the wants r.f the pther us well as they can tho wants of their ojn, and a treat many men who writ* for tbe newspapers know lets about the feuiale understanding than they do of the myste ries of dress making, or the management of a cross baby. You have enough of advice, certain}? ; I shall only tell jou a few well-known facts. Do not aiako matriuioay tho aalc end und aim of your cxiyteuce. Now lint colleges, schools of art,, und tho learned pio'ei-sinns are opened to women, you need not accept the first &ian who of fers himself, whether you love him or not, became you have to be supported some, how, mill it is not respectable for a lady to cam her own living. It i.« better fur tho moral condition of society that girls should become doctor.', artists, telegraph opera tors, book-keepers, or anything that will support theiu honestly, rather than be come the wires of men they cannot lore. Girls, never marry for the poor boon of either a home or a husbaud. Do not soil yourselve-i for gold, for a ninrriage without is an inferno more terrible than Dauto ever pictured. It is better to be a cheer ful, contented " old maid," than an un happy wife. Some of the oldest women who ever ex isted have never married, for they pre ferred "single blessedness" :%i "wedded misery." Of course it is better to be mar r'eJ if the right one comes ; but if he does not, do not tret about it. There is no greater mistake than 4o affirm either that matrimony is the universal vocation of wo men, or that a sour temper and discontent, ed spirit are inseparable from the condition of Mugle life. There never was an un happy " old maid" yet who would not have been qnite as unhappy as a wife, and created double mischief, for ahe would have made two people miserable instead of ono. STUFF ANI> NONSENSE. —"Can't bo helped," in a phrase often enough on thu lips of feeble folk. As they miss chance* and spoil undertakings, they cousolc thenu selves with this pitiable formula. It serves their purpose. It suggests a sort of fate outside themselves, inevitable and irresistible, of which they are the victims. It clears theui of responsibility, or it rec onciles tliuiu to blunders. A man is on the wrong truck when ho often says. "It can't be helped." True, " thero is no rjni cdy for spilled milk," when it has been spilled; but there are a good many prtotu. tions against spilling. A strong man takes the precautions; a wcuk man spills the milk, and then, with a look and a tone of commisseration, partly of himself, partly of the wreck, he says, " It can't be helped." NEI'OTIBM. —An exchange gives the fol lowing definition of this word: The term "nepotism" originated in Itxly about the thirteenth century wlieu the temoral pow er of the I\>pes was felt throught Christen, dom. The Popes, invested with a dignity and u revenue of imperial proportions, soon began to use their influence to aggran dize their families. Being deprived by virtue of their priestly offiee, of direct descendants, they promoted the collateral branches of their families, and espeetally their nephews, to various profitable em ployments and dignities. So far vaa this carried that the Italians invented the term " /1j Nipotixmo" —nepotism--to express, this papal abuse, from the familiar word nrpos, a nephew. THE WAK AGAINST TOBACCO.— There is considerable amusement expressed over the way in which an anti-tobacco society iu England were recently taken in. •- It seems a Professor NOW >uau was brought up to give his experience of the bauefnl. Always having been innocent cf its rise, he was to try a pipeful in order that lia mk'lit get sick, and be enabled the mere vividly to detail iu horrible effects upon the human system. But unfortunately for science and philanthrophy, the Professor was not thrown iuto the terrible siskeesa so confidently expected, ar i he rather liked the sensation than otherwise; so, much so iodeod, that ho would bo billing to make another trial. trf Horace Greeley is (he first practical printer that erer was nominated fhr the Prc>idency.
