SCENERY AND VEUETA'I02. J?
There 13 but a single ubilftj in'existance
among onr co-proftssiotials that we consider
as really enviable, or, at least, there is but one
whichVp epvjcj" it is njttjjfe ability to lire ' in
luxury through means of wealth in this we
congratulate all nor is it the" ability. :oy
thought or silent discernment; .but' we envy
that ability, which some possess, of picturing
thought, of putting every emotion of the sou
into language ani of conveying to the eyes 0
others., all the ideas which stamp themselves
upon the imagination.
This is a divine faculty, tke faculty which
makes the poet, the novelist and the orator,
Never has the absence of this power been
more painfully felt by us than upon the present
occasion, as w have had the the satisfaction
of viewing a scenery which quite bafflps any
description by our pen. For this view we are
indebted .to Jhe courteMy of J3on JohnB. Allen
wKo called upon us on Sunday evening last
wMn, taking a seat in his carriage we had a
pleasant dr.ive. of seyeral miles, visiting ih
various cultivated fields and ranches alon th
Santa Cruz valley;
For several months we had not been beyond
the suburbs of the city and were not prepared
for the,- scenes which everywhere presented
themselves: Here are several thousand acres
of land, certainly as pictuiesque and as fertile
as any on the Pacific slope, blossoming luxu
riantly .; va t and nunserous . fields of grain
Gome just springing above ground, others
have attained various.heights, from sis inches
to two feet, and we observed one field of
barley already headed ; peach trees in ful
blossom, an J hedge rows which present a
continuous mass of fo.iage may be seen in
every direction, and form an indescribable
contrast with the dark prey mountains beyond
We halted ft r sorre minutes at the ranch of
Mr Allen which is located about two miles
from town. Everything here bears evidence
of thrift and enterprise in the owner A lar;

Until recently, ,the principal road leading
through this agricultural district was in very
poor condition, so poor that during the rainy
season k was sit luuuypuims iinjiassuue, owing
to the quantities of water at these points ac
cumulated. But the enterpriing spirit of the
gentleman before named, would not suffer th s

who, from January to December, stai.d .behind
their counters, and do little else than limn)

HeTe is a climate and soil where most-tropical
fiuts will grow anl ripen; and there i no
cbservble rea0 1 why the bee should not here
as well as in the valleys of California deposit
their lescious ftores in abundance.
However, it is satisfactory to know that
these various branches, of agriculture are about
to have a fair trial: Mr. Allen, who, during
the past tour years, nas experimei tea to . a
ereat amount, for the purpose of ascertaining

fruit trees. He will likewise try the cultivation
of the grape, of the success of which there can
be no doubt since it is to be found growing
wild in every portion of the Territory where,
a stream of water courses.
This is citizenship of reil valut c'ti7enship
through which a count 7 mu?t prosper. Why
cannot others, possessing ample means, aid in
this pursuit ot agricultural information, rather
x y n
than raise, year atter year, me same species ot
fruit or grain 7 It is Known to all that experi

A sanguinary affray, resulting in loss of
ife, took place here some days since: A Mex
ican named Juan Camancho got into a dis
pute with three other Mexicans, and, being a
reputed desparado, was by them considered a
dangerous individual with whom fo altercate.
They accordingly endeavored to ccme to an
micable understanding, and having to all
appearance succeeded, were about to separate
when Camancho caught one of them, named
Joaquin, (alias Chappo, alias Shorty,) by the
arm as if to detain hiir. The latter requested,
then demanded to be released, but the former,
who was evidently determined to have a quar
rel, was about to renew the misunderstanding
by a series of accusations and threats, when
Joaquin suddenly pulled a large bowie knife
and plunged it into his breast. The wounded
man was carried off and remedies were ap
plied, but to no purpose: he died aoon after
wards. Joaquin has since been arrested, and
is now con6ned in the jail to await trial.
There are various conflicting rumors current,
purporting to explain the origin of the quarrel,
but from our best information it would appear
that the foregoing is the most reliable.
