For the Washington Standard Lines to a Boy. Boy, who all the live-long day, Laugh the weary hours away. With thy face so fair and bright, And thv locks of golden light, With thv steps so tleet and tre., Yet will find there's care for thee. O'er thy brow will sorrow come, When thy childish days are gone. When the "rose hath Hed thy check," Which a merry heart doth speak, Thou'lt forget thy childish joy 111 thy older hours, my boy ! Once my heart was light as thine, Once a joyous smile was mine; Now the joyous smile has gone, And dull care instead hath come. "Oft I've roamed with boyish pride, tin the broad and smooth hill-side, And by Canda's verdant shore,' Where, nlasl I'll rove no more. Now the mounded cnrlli is seen, No-.v the waving grass is green. Where was laid witlfluany tears, Her I loved in bv-gonc years. So, my boy, 'twill lie with thee— Till heaven is reached, eternity— Soon, ah soon will fly away, All that's fair and all that's gay. K. J. Portland, Oregon, Dee. 29, 1800. Waifs. Jennv Lind (Joldsclnnit has just returned to England from a visit of some weeks to her native city of Stockholm, where she was cordially rccieved by her friends, from whom she had been ab sent several years. Her successor upon the musical "stage of Sweden, Louise Miclial, whom the Swedish critics agree in considering little if any inferior, has lately been married to her cousin, and, in imitation of her predecessors, now signs iier name Louise Miclial Michacli. BSf A young man, who hasn't any wife to take care of, went the other night to the ftidies' fair. He has been oblivious ever since, and says he saw an article there he "tain would own, but it was not for sale." He declared that since that night he is "rapturously wretched." As the " article" was hound in hoops, the reader is left to in fer that it was either a you lI o >lady or whisky. They are both calculated to make a wretch " rapturous." LOVER'S QCABIIEI-S. —The following dispatch went through our telegranh office recently: "Charley and Julia met this morning—quarreled and part ed forever —met again at 110011 and parted to meet 110 more—met again this evening and were married."— Toledo Blade. ffgr- "My yoke is easy and my bur den is light," as a fellow said when a )>rctty girl was sitting 011 his lap with icr arm around his neck. Our " dev'd" says he would give a handsome premi um for that chap's sit, or wouldn't mind act ins as sub for him. mgr» We always admired the answer of thu man who, when asked how old he was, answered: "Just forty years; hut if you count by the fun I haveseen, I am at least eighty." IBS™ " Figures won't lie," is an old and homely expression; but few men can look 011 a fashionable woman's fig ure, now-a-days, and say as much. J&ST Dr. Johnson says, "(Jood ac tions are never lost or thrown away." That is probably the reason why one so seldom meets with them. It is usual to speak of those whom a flirt has jilted as her victims. This is a great error; her real victim is the man she accepts. Jjifjr Wedlock has been compared to a bird-cage; the bird? without peck to get in, and those within peek to get out. Alabama Legislature has passed a law imposing a fine of SBOOOII spirit mediums who give public sittings. KsST* Sophistry is like a window-cur tain—it pleases as an ornament, but its is to keep out the light. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, JANUARY 19,1801. legislative Proceedings—Eighth Session. REPORTED EXPRESSLY FOR THE "STANDARD." Council. Tm-RSDAY,.Jan. B.—A quorum con sisting of Messrs. Biles, Burbauk, Ca bles, Miller anil Woodard, called Mr. Burbank to the chair in the absence of the President, Mr. Ilubbs. A supplemental Bill, submitting the location of the seat of government to a vote of the people, having passed the House, Mr. Caples vacated his seat, leaving the Council without a quorum. —then adjourned. FRIDAY, Jan. 4.—The whole morn ing spent in trying to tinker up the journal, so as to make it show that Mr. Caples was absent, yesterday, with the evident view of preventing the re ception of the supplemental bill from House, to allow the people to vote on a proper site for their seat of government. Mr. ('lark moved to make the journal establish the fact, that there was a call ot' the House, and a motion to adjourn, without the intervening message from the House, announcing the passage by the House of said bill: without a vote on this motion. Council adjourned. SATUJDAY, Jan. s.—Mr. Clark on leave withdrew his crpHHyotfi motion. Mr. Caples, then asked that the jour nal should show he was not in his seat at the time of the reception of the message of the passage bv the House of the supplemental Capitol Hill. The Council on motion of Air. Clark took up said bill, and ordered it printed after its first reading. Then adjourned. MONDAY, Jan. 7.—Mr. Ilubbs, pre sented a petition from citizens of Island county praying for the erection of a county to be called Snohomish, read and referred to committee on counties. The same gentleman laid before the Council a statement in regard to the Clallam Indians, accompanying which he introduced a resolution. The whole matter referred to committee on Indian affairs. Air. Clark introduced a general in corporation law, which was ordered, printed. The House Memorial praying the es tablishment of a Post route from l'ort Townsend to Conpeville, Oak llarltor and Ut-se-la-da, passed. The House Memorial relating to the stationing war steamers upon Puget Sound being taken up, Mr. Denny moved to amend changing the phrase ology somewhat, but not altering the spirit of memorial. As amended, the memorial unanimously passed. The apportionment bill was received from the House and referred to a select committee consisting of Messrs. Miller, Simmsand Clark, after which the Coun cil adjourned. TUESDAY, Jan. B.—Mr. Caplcs—a bill to incorporate the Vancouver and Fort Sinicoe road Company—ordered printed. The following bills from the House, "an act relocating the County Seat of Island county, and a bill establishing the county of Shoshone," read and re ferred to committee on Counties. The House llill relative to the navigation of Oak Point Slough, referred to commit tee on commerce. Mr. Miller, chair man of select committee to whom was referred the apportionment, bill, re ported that the majority of said com mittee had instructed him to recom mend the passage of the bill without amendment, but that he as a minority of said committee reported a substitute. The majority report was adopted, and under a call ot the previous question, the bill passed by the following vote: AYES— Messrs. Caplcs, Clark, Denny, Simms and the President.—s. NOES.— Messrs. Biles, Burbank, Mil ler and Woodard.—l. By this bill Thurston county is re duced one Councilman, and two mem bers. Sawamish county is added to Pierce for a joint member and joint Councilman, in other words entirely ab sorbed in the larger county. Pierce and Sawamish are made a Council Dis trict. Pierce elects two members, ami Pierce and Sawamish together elect one. The present district represented bv Mr. President llubhs, is allowed an other Councilman. And the Clark and Walla Walla region, are increased in definitely, in Council and House repre sentation. Every county opposed to Thurston, is liberally looked after in both houses. The Republican counties, are narrowed down to the strictest adop tion of the rule. The outrage alone to Sawamish county condemns this bill. Mr. Denny condemned the bill, but as a choice of evils.voted for it. Other members fearing there would be no apportionment, accepted it as Ilob son's choice. And thus this bill of abominations, fixed up to operate on the choice of delegates to nominate a candidate for delegate to Corigre is 1 foisted upon the people of the Terri tory for at least one year. Sir. Caples, moved to instruct the committee on Public Buildings and grounds, to make report on the hill sub mitting the location of Capital to the people to-morrow morning—carried. The Council then adjourned. WEDNESDAY, Jan. '«♦.—The committee on counties reported favorably on the bill relocating the County Seat of Island county, and the bill erecting Shoshone county, which were subsequently passed.

The Council took up the bill divorc ing John and Ann Cantwell. On mo tion of Mr. Caples, the Sergeant at arms was directed to procure the attendance of Henry Miles, Mr. Stone of Cowlitz and Dr. Warbass to give testimony. The President of the Council very justly objected to the Council being converted into a jury to try divoive eases. It is really ventilating to see a disposition even thus late, to stay these hasty, ill-advised divorce proceedings. After Mr. Miles had made his state ment the bill was referred to commit tee on Judiciary. Several bills reported from commit tees and those in order for third read ing wore passed.

MOXTICELLO, JIM. 9,1861* En. STANDARD —I sec it is customary when breaking colts tti handle them roughly, which I think is very Improp er. Colts, When they hafe been in the habit of running at large, are naturally very wild and afraid of man, and his easiest and best mode of breaking them is to deal gently with them. Teach them what you waiit them to do with out fortie, and they will soon become attached to vou and willing to do what you want of them, while on the other hand, by rough treatment, they will continue to be afraid of you, and will strive to escape. I think if any ouo who has the management of horses, will be guided by my suggestions, ho will be convinced of their utility. I have hud much experience with horses, »nd can therefore speak from my own knowledge.
