Agricultural Lands in the Southern
Counties of California.
BY wm. b. OLDEN.
To furnish information to eastern
people, who have already commenced
to stream into California, seeking
homes in a country and climate where
they can recover and maintain their
health, and where they can avoid the
extremes of heat and cold, I will at
tempt to describe and locate the most
desirable agricultural lands of the
Southern coast counties.
As these lands are (with the excep
tion of a few secluded valleys of small
importance) entirely included in a
belt lying between the coast range
and the sea, I will confine myself to
them, ns the land east of the moun
tain Is, generally speaking, not adapt
ed to anything except pasture for
sheep and cattle, and cannot, therefore,
be properly classed as agricultural
This belt commences with the north
line of San Luis Obispo county,
about ten miles northwest of San
Simeon bay, and extends to the south
ern limits ot the county at the mouth
of the Santa Maria, and has a varying
width of from three to fifteen miles,
composed principally of undulating
foot lulls, which, as they approach the
sea gradually subside into a compara
tively level mesa or table land, cross
ed occasionally by some stream flow
ing westerly from the coast range,
with its narrow border of rich and
moist bottom land. A valley from one
to three miles wide, extends longi
tudinally through this belt, (with
some unimportant interruptions,) from
the northern to the southern line of the
county. The soil is generally rich and
productive, and although a consider
able portion is devoted to grain it is
fount! that dairying and sheep are
more profitable; but little grain Is
raised for export, most of it being re-
Si vlred for home consumption. The
amous Steele Bros', dairies are located
in the centre of this belt, near the
town of San Luis Obispo. Steamers
land regularly at San Simeon bay and
San Luis landing, twice each month.
ftanta Barbara Comity.
The northwesterly part of this coun
ty is rough, and broken spurs and
ridges from the mountains crossing
the coast belt, extend to the coast.
Between these ridges, however, are
some very fertile valleys, equal in pro
ductiveness to anything found in the
State. Owing, however, to the ab
sence of any convenient shipping
facilities, the country must remain
what it is at present—exclusively pas
toral. The climate of the coast from
Point Conception, (the western limit
of the valley of Santaßarbara), to San
Simeon bay, (the northern limit of
this belt) Is cool and bracing; admir
ably adapted for healthy and robust
people, and it is also resorted to by
those whose health has been broken
by the malarious fevers of San Joa
quin valley. A residence of six
months or a year scarcely ever fails to
effect a cure.
Santa Barbara valley, proper, ex
tends from the Gaviota Pass to Car
plnterla, a distince of about 40 miles,
aud consists of a mesa belt, tolerably
level, varying from one to two miles
4n width. The town of Santa Barbara
occupies a central position in this val
ley, and is remarkable as the only
town In Southern California that is
built directly on tbe coast, the towns
at other places being located a few
miles back, to avoid the somewhat
too vigorous sea breeze, which usually
acquires a milder and more pleasant

temperature after passing over a few
miles of land; but as the coast of Santa
Barbara trends due east and west, the
sea breeze blows along, and not on tiie

resort for invalids', being admirably
adapted to those eases that require•

The vulley U principally composed
of mesa lands of medium fertility,being
generally better adapted to the culti
vation of vines and trees than to grain
raising. However, on the La Patera
rancho, ten miles west of Santa Bar
bara, there is a valley containing sev
eral thousand acres of naturally moist
fertile valley land adapted to tanning
purposes, and about ten miles east, at
the Carpenteria, is also found a sim
iliar valley of small extent. Vines,
olives and almonds flourish admirably
at Santa Barbara, not requiring irri
gation, for which there are no facil
San Buenaventura, the county scat
of the new county of Ventura, is lo
cated thirty mi lea southeast of Santa
Barbara. The coast here having re
sumed its ordinary southeast trend,
the sea breeze blows on shore, and the
same cool and bracing climate is
found that prevails north of Point
Conception, There are two valleys
of tine land in this county, that of San
Buenaventura river, which is of mod
erate extent, and also the noted Santa
Clara valley, which contains a large
body of laud naturally moist, and a
soil similar to that of the great valley
of Los Angeles county. Owing to the
fact that the climate is too cold, this
valley is unsuited for semi-tropical
productions, but is admirably adapted
to general farming. The Santa Clara
river furnishes water for irrigation,
which is also obtained from overflow
ing artesian wells, some of which
yield abundantly. At the head of the
Santa Clara valley the sea breeze hav
ing become tempered, the culture of
semi-tropical plants is successful.
Bos Angeles County.
Between this valley and the valleys
of Los Angeles county, a broad and
lofty range of mountains intervene,
extending to the coast, and the stage
road, to avoid these mountains, con
tinues up the Santa (Mara valley,
and thence into the Slmi valley,
which is of large extent, hut not pos
sessing sufficient water for irrigation,
is used for pasturage. Crossing a
steep and rocky ridge you enter San
Fernando valley, ten by eighteen
miles in extent. Shut in by hills it is
protected from the sea fogs, and is one
of the few places iv the southern part
of the State where wheat can be suc
cessfully cultivated. The soil of most
of this valley is very fertile and, in
parts of it, springs furnish an abun
dance of water for irrigation. As the
Los Angeles river rises and derives all
of its water from this valley, it is a
natural presumption that a large por
tion of it can be irrigated by artesian
wells; a matter of great importance, as
an abundant supply of water for irri
gation is an essential in the culture of
semi-tropical fruits. All those parts
of San Fernando valley in which
water can be obtained for irrigation,
will be found as well adapted for that
purpose, as any lands in Los Angeles
county. Following down the Los An
geles river, by the route of the S. P. R.
It. from San Fernando Pass (all rail
roads must pass through San Fernan
do valley), we come to the city of Los
Angeles, famous for its orange groves.
Proceeding east we pass through San
Gabriel Mission, equally famous for its
orange groves and vines, and beyond
is the well known valley of El Monte,
which «is located in the very bed of
the San Gabriel river, the water of
which, after leaving the mountains,
sinks in the sand, and after running
under the fertile valley of El Monte,
bursts fourth again in large and nu
merous springs, which, uniting, form
two streams—the New and Old San
Gabriel, each pursuing its separate
course to the sea.
East of El Monte is the fertile valley
of San Jose creek, an affluent of the
San Gabriel, a valley with a charming
climate, abundance of water, and not
only well adapted to semi-tropicals,
but also the only valley of this county
where wheat growing is certain. A
range of low hills separates San Jose
valley from the great valley of South
ern California, which extends along
the sea coast southeast by northwest,
fifty miles in length by twenty miles
in width —the true semi-tropical val
ley of this semi-tropical county. More
than half of this valley is moist bot
tom land, requiring nothing but good
farming to produce good crops, with
out irrigation. By means of the
water of the rivers and the water from
artesiau wells which are unfailing,
and can be made to now in those parts
of the valley beyond the reach of the
water of the rivers, almost the entire
valley can be irrigated; thus making
tho fortunate inhabitants entirely in
dependent of rain.
The sea-breeze here has lost the
rough harshness of the northern coast,
and its soft and tempered freshness is
equally grateful to the robust lungs of
the healthy as to the more delicate
organs of the invalid. The different
portions of this broad valley enjoy an
infinite variety of climate. On the
sea coast is found the cool and even
temperature of San Diego; on the mesa
land, near the hills, the air is dry and
warm, and in the interval between the
hills and the sea any desired shade of
climate can be found.
In this valley are located the towns
of Wilmington and Compton on the
L. A and S. P. It. R., west of the San
Gabriel river and in the western part
of the valley. In Los Nietos—the in
tervale of the New ami Old San Gabriel
rivers, is the town of Gallatin, nestled
In perpetual verdure, while on the east
side of the Santa Ana, the largest river
of the south, are found the towns
of Santa Ana, Tustin and Kichland,
each the centre of a thriving sette
Between the Santa Ana and new
Sau Gabriel rivers lies the centre ami
best part of the valley, and centrally
located in this twenty miles square
block we find the green hedges and
productive vineyards of the thrifty
settlement of Anaheim, the principal
town of the valley, and evidently
destined, from the nature of its sur
roundings, to remain so.
Following up the Santa Ana river,
in its passage through the hills,
(which in this country of mountains
are hardly worthy to be dignified by
the name of the Santa Ana moun
tains), and lying northeast from Ana
heim, a broad valley of immense extent
LOS ANGELES, SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 23, 1873.
opens before us, the valley of San Ber
nardino county. In the eastern cor
ner of the valley, at the base of the
lofty peak of the same name, lies the
town of San Bernardino, in a verdant
basin filled with running streams and
spouting wells. If any fault is to be
found with San Bernardino, it is that
water is almost too abundant. On the
east bank of the river, twelve miles
below, is the colony of Riverside,
founded by Judge North.
Following the coast to San Diego we
pass through the valleys of San Juan
Capistrano, and San Luis Roy, con
taining in the aggregate some thou
sands of acres of good land with the
all important advantage of plenty of
water for irrigation. There is also
plenty of good soil in the county of
San Diego, but the rain fall is small,
and there are no facilities for irriga
tion; until that want is supplied, the
country ow3 never Ik ♦hicfcly settled.
It is much to be regretted, that such a
fine harbor should be surrounded by a
country that is valueless for want of
Outside of the lands I have enumer
ated, there is nothing in the southern
coast counties worthy of the name of
agricultural lauds. Much of those I
have described are unequaled, ami all
of them are good; and I would advise
the intending purchaser to visit all the
described places before purchasing,
and during his investigations, to keep
constantly before his mind this fact,
that there is no unproductive land in
Southern California if it can be irri
gated; and also to remember this ad
vice, not to be persuaded into buying
land that is not naturally moist or
that can not be irrigated.— [Southern

Oakland, July 11, 1872. )
Herewith I certify that Miss Josephine Lind
ley has been a student In my department of
the University for Aye consecutive terms, viz:
from September, 1870, to April 3d, 1872. During
this time she studied the French, the Spanish
and the German languages, obtaining always
the highest marks for proficiency nnd attend
ance, her average credit mark for five terms
being 97 per cent.
On entering the University, Miss Lindley
possessed already such knowledge of the
French and Spanish Idioms as to be able to
speak them with ease, fluency, correctness,
and a pure pronunciation.
She may now be considered thoroughly fa
miliar with the theory and philosophy,as well
as with the application of these two tongues;
and she may safely be recommended as a can
didate of great promise, for teaching the
French and Spanish languages.

TO THE FARMERS OF LOS
Angeles County: We call your attention
to the new IMPROVED GANG PLOW, pa
tented by D. A. Manuel, of Napa, and adopted
by the Oranges of this State. The points of
superiority are: Lightness of draft, It being a
centre draft; a castor wheel In the rear, which
makes It turn In a space sufficient to accom
modate Its length; it has a railing pole and
can, by sliding, be adjusted to the driver's
weight, ami removes all pressure from the
horses' necks. We only ask farmers to call
aud examine tor themselves.
