Five men were up' before Judge
Peel yesterday on a charge or drunk
and disorderly. Two were sent up
five days each and the other three
ten days apiece. In the case of
purchasing a stolen horse, the ac

the animal in good faith, where
upon the judge decided that be
return tho horse to the rightful
owner and dismissed tho charge.
The jury in tho case of the People
vs Tamiet, on trial for forgery, re
tired about half past four yesterday
evening. A few minutes before
eight o'clock tbey came into Court
and reported that they were not
likely to agree. The Judge remand
ed them to the care of tho Sheriff
and directed him to bring them
into Court this morning, when, if
they havo not agreed, they will
probably bo discharged.
The Board of Supervisors, ut their
last session, adopted an order re
quiring jurors in criminal cases to
make affidavit of tho number of
days they may have served during
a term and the distance traveled.
Heretofore the simple word of the
juror as to the distance traveled has
been deemed sufficient, but, as
their statements of tho number of
miles have not always been exactly
accurate, the Board lias found it
necessary to issue the above order.
J mors will please take notice.
We are pleased to learn that tiie
area auwu in wheat iv the San
Fernando valley Is much larger
thau we had at first supposed. As
one of our contemporaries iiaa as
sumed that our estimate of twenty
thousand acrc9 in wheat for the
whole county is too large, we are
happy to be able to assure it that
there iR within a trifle of seven
teen thousand acres in wheat in
the San Feruando valley alone.
The Messrs. Lankershim aud Van
Nuys have, on their side of tbe
valley, about twelve thousand
acres, of which all but enough for
feed for their own stook is in
wheat. Taking tbe whole county,
we think ws are justified in ad
vancing our original estimate two
or three thousand acres. Tbe green
fields of all kluds never looked
belter than they do now.
The Marra Concert.
Loa Angeles can generally bo re
lied upon to give a local favorite n
cordial aud appreciative testimo
nial. That tendered to Madame
Marra at Turnvereln Hall last
night was really nu ovation. We
were glad to find that the hull was
crowded iv evory quarter, the aud
itorum being filled witli the
fashion and culture of our city.
The concert was opened by Miss
MattleS. Fairmau, who executed a
piauo solo by Gottschalk iv a sym
pathetic and highly finished style.
She was obliged to respond to a
hearty encore. Mrs. S. W. Knapp
sang Millard's "Waiting" in an
arch and acceptable mauner, win
ning a cordial recall. Mr. W. G.
Cogswell gave "I Fear no Foe,"
from Pinsuti, in tho highly artistic
aud spirited fashion which has
made his appearances on our local
stage a welcome feature in any en
tertainment. The usual encoro re
sulted—a feature of the evening, we
may add, which was only broken
in one instance.
Mr. Cogswell gavy place to
Madame Marra. tho beneficiary of
the concert, who was greeted by a
perfect storm of welcoming plaud
its. She sang Gabriol's "Only" in
English, phrasing it perfectly and
rendering it with exquisite appre
ciation. The conservatories of Los
Angeles must have been exhausted
of their contents to furnish the bou
quets, large and small, which were
showered upon ber at its conclu
sion. In response to a peremptory
encore, she sang the Serenade
from Gounod, and her reed like and
delicious votes were never heard to
better advantage than last nlgbt.
Mr. F. W. Ludovici next played,
on the violin, a selection from
Pagauini, accompanied by Miss
Pruneda on tbe piano. Thlsgeti
tlemau is a very superior violinist,
and he enjoyed the advantage, in
his accompanist, of a young lady
who has attained a remarkable pro
ficiency in tbe manipulation ofthe
piano. No incidents of the eve
ning evoked more emphatic recog
nition from the audience than the
Instrumentation of Mr. Ludovici
aud MisbPruneda. Tbey were ob
liged to respond to repeated en
cores, and iv the two last Mr.
Ludovici exchauged his violin for
a cornet, exhibiting a marked
mastery of tbe latter, making ap
parent versatility which was not
expected by those of the audience
not personally acquainted with
Mrs. S. 11. Caswell sang Farm
er's " I'll Follow Thee" piquantly
aud enjoyably. She was compelled
to yield lo a very enthusiastic 011
--core.aud was succeeded by Mr. Car
ter, wliowiifJiot encored because his
descriptive solo, "City on Fire,"
was a trifle too long. With the
experience of the Chicago lire iv
their mind's eye, the audience
thought the conflagration should
have been got through with in a
more expeditious manner. His
singing, however, was unexcept
ionable, and the lack of warmth ou
the part of theaudieuce was simply
referable to an unfortunate selec
Mrs. J. G. Howard, a lady who
very rarely, if ever, sings in public,
gave tho soprano solo from Kobert
le JDiable. Mrs. Howard is notable
for the possession of a very swset
and elaborately cultivated voice.
She answered a vory emphatic en
core by singing "There is a Path
by the River," in a manner, we
thought, even more acceptable
than the Hist selection. Tbe mu
sical portion of tho entertainment
was concluded with "Sunrise," by
the Messrs. Fanning, Carter, Fos
ter and Corbett, a quartette whose
superior qualifications have been
Uo often conceded by a Los Ange
les audienco to need detailed men
The whole wound up witli " Les
Fcmmes gui Pluerent," a little
French comedietta which was very
creditably performed by some am
ateur actors of the Latin race.
We take great pleasure iv being
able to note that the testimonial
was not. only a success from an ar
tistic standpoint, but that tho pe
cuniary outcome must prove highly
gratifying to Madame Marra and
the friends who so cordially co
operated with her.
Yuma and the Small-Pox.
A gentleman who lias just re
turned from Yuma gave us a cu
rious account of the Insouciance of
the inhabitants of that burg with
regard to the spread of the small
pox, a disease which has been prev
alent there for some months. He
fliat happened upon an old ac
quaintance, who had been residing
on the Colorado for some time.
After a cordial shake of tho hand,
tbo Augelefio asked after his
friend's health. He was pretty
well but his family was sick.
" What's tho matter?" said our
townsman. "Oh, they have the
small-pox," waß the reply. Horri
fied Augelefio, "And I suppose you
have just come from them." The
soft impeachment was admitted,
and our townsman removed him
self from the scene of the conta
gion, and from further converse
with hia old-time frleud, with an
expedition which spoke of a deci
dedly diminished cordiality.
As the result of his observations,
lie would judge that they seem to
think as little of small-pox out in
Yuma as they do of chicken-pox
elsewhere. Sanitary regulations
were adopted by the authorities,
but no atteulion seems to be paid
to them. Patients just out of bed,
with the small-pox ecabsstill stick
ing on them, would enter tbe
stores,and other publio places,quite
in a matter of course manner.
The fact is that the disuase in
Yuma is of an excessively mild de
scription. Hence tbe comparative
indifference which exists as to its
spread. The arrangements for pre
venting its reaching Los Angeles
and other points are fortunately
far better than for restrlotiug its
spread in Yuma itself.
The Beard of Supervisors yester
day adopted a resolution request
ing tho Loa Angeles Legislative
delegation to procure the passage
of an amendmeut to the delinquent
tax law for this county, extending
tbe time of publication of tbe de
linquent list one month be
yond the time prescribed by tbe
Board of Supervisors.

Editor Herald: There are
three necessities which our city
must supply before it can claim to
be what it ought to be; these are
good sidewalks, a theatre and a
Court House. Tbe first named are
gradually being supplied. Tbe sec
ond depends upon tbe enterprise
and publio spirit of ourcitizens, and
should be provided without delay.
Iv this day and stage of civiliza
tion, a city without a theatre, or a
well appointed building for public
amusements, is Justly classed
among back-woods settlements, Is
shunued by travelers, ami gains a
reputation as a "one-horse" town,
void of enterprise, and lacking the
commonest modern advantages.
The last named, a new Couuty
Court House, we must have, no
matter what else wo try to get
along without. For this we must
look to our Supervisors and law
makers. As one of your contem
poraries observes, tiie present affair
used as a Court Houso, wouldn't
pass muster as a stable in some
places; aud to think ot putting up
with it much longer, is out ofthe
question. . In appearance, it is a
blot upon the town, and iv incon
venience, want of room, unsafeneas
us a depository of public reoords,
and a total unfitness for the pur
poses for which it is used, it chal
lenges comparison with anything
In the shape of a County Court
House in the United States. We
must have a new Court House.

The Fire Near Riverside.
We take the following addition
al particulars of tho burning of Mr.
Walters's house, near Riverside,
San Bernardino county, from the
Express of yesterday:
A gentleman living near the
scene of the late disastrous Are be
low Riverside, gave us, this.moi n
ing, some additional particulars of
the sad affair. The stricken family
consisted of Mr. D. Walters aud
wife, with a boy nine years old,
aud tbair daughter, Mrs. Vau Pat
ten, who, with her husband and
iufant, lived in the same premises.
The men were both away from
home when the fire occurred. Tbe
baby was saved by being thrown
into a trough of water near the
house, aud the others extinguished
the flames in their clothing by pre
cipitating themselves into a pond
of water near at hand. The two
women and the infant, although
their clothes were almost burned
off and th«y received severe inju
ries, are recovering. The boy died
the day after the dreadful occur
rence. He was so badly burned
that the muscles of his arms and
legs contracted, drawing his hands
and feot out of shape; 011 many
parts el' his body tho flesh was
ready to part from the bones at the
least touch. The family were
taken in and cared for by a sym
pathetic neighbor, nnd a subscrip
tion was taken up among others,
which resulted in the collection of a
considerable purse, and some cloth
ing and bedding for their use. Our
informant was Mr. J. Richardson,
Jr., who, himself, was one of the
most active movers in behnlf of
the sadie afflicted pecplc.
