Dear Herald: Having reached
the conclusion tbat a paseo of a
few days would be a good thing,
and knowing how wont San Fran
cisco Is to be breezy and anything
bat semi-tropical in July, it oc
curred to tbe undersigned that a
oooler place for a slight vacation
could not be discovered than tbe
city itself. Tbe way tbe schedule
Is arranged, the passenger from
Lis Augeles gets fairly across tbe
desert, is refreshed by a comforta
ble meal at the Mojtve hotel of
tbat old Augeleno, E. H. Boyd,
before "dewy eve" has settled into
uncompromising night. Milton's
phrase, I take it, is unique in its
application to the Mejave desert.
Yet, all things taken together, it
was by no means very warm, al
though dew is a visitation tbe
cacti family of that arid plain are
never able to be thankful for. Tbe
rjute taken by the railway de
prives tbe traveler of tbat weird
and parti-colored view of tbe deseit
which was indescribably fascinat
ing in ths old stage days. It is
much to be regretted that the Hue
©." the Southern Pacific Railway—
in fact, of none of our railways
exoept the Santa Monica branch —
Is calculated to give tbe stranger a
thorough impression of either the
beauties ur Ihe possibilities of Los
Angeles enmity. He who makes a
trip te Yuma sees absolutely noth
ing of the wealth or exquisite cul
tivation of the Mission San Ga
briel. He who goes down to Santa
Ana is in rqunl ignorance of Ibe
beauty aud fertility of the Los
Nietos valley, Anaheim, Gospel
Swamp, Orange, Westminster aud
other sections not surpassed in
their line ou Ibe continent.
It is hanlly necessary to say that
travel now is at a very low ehb.

A FAT LAND.
The first blushes of tbe sun found
us traversing tbe richest grain sec
tion ou tbe American continent.
As far as the eye could reach, on
both sides of the track, the fields
were goldeu with grain, either in
precess or being reaped or threshed,
or yellow from tbe countless mil
lions of stalks from which the
grain bad been cut by tbe header.
The spectacle would have aston
ished a Pennsylvania or New York
farmer, witli his fifty or one hun
dred note fanu economically put iv
diversified crops, and who Is con
tent to go out with a rea;> r
and mow his gtain himself, with
the assist nirj of a hired manor
two during tlie busiest part ot' the
season. Everywhere were lour
horse teams, lour beiug employed
to head Ihe wheat and four to haul
the wagon which accompanies the
header aud receives tlio grain.
Everywhere could be seen im
mense stacks on those portions of
the fields which bad bee., treated
by tbe header, and near these
stacks would be a movable engine,
"busily threshing out tbe wheat.
As near as 1 could count them in
my rapid flight, one of these stucks
would generally yield a couple of
hundred sacks of wheal. Iv every
corner of the immense Sacramento
and San Joaquin valleys, teams are
at work, either completing tbe
harvester hauling it lo points of
The only break in a laudacape
audi as I have described was wlieu
an occasional straggling and rustic
town, or a town neat and preten
tious, like Merced, came into view,
or when a thick growth of live
oaks aud cotton-woods, across tbe
yellow plaiu, marked the progress
of some river, like tbe Tuolumne.
I can well believe the statement of
the late Isaac Friedlandei's last
grain circular, that tbe present
wheat and barley crop Is the larg
est ever raised in California. When
marketed, and tbe proceeds passed
to the credit of our farmers, the
pall of bard limes ought to be pret
ty effectually broken.

On the principle that it is dark
est just before day, Sau Franoisco
should become very prosperous
shortly. W» are disposed to grum
ble a little iv Los Augeles occn
sitaally, but tbe refrain of bard
times which one encounters here is
something absolutely appalling.
A large eily always looks busy to
a visitor from a small oue, but I
am Informed, on all bands, tbat the
time* are sadly out of joiut. Judg
ing from the general tenor of the
conversation, Flood A O'Brien are
th* causes of the collapse in real
estate valuer. Those gentleman,
in their time, hi.ye put their foot
down on many a promising 'Meal,"
but whether tbey aye proved
themselves public benefactors by
so doing it Is uot for " a looker on

certain, they have made untold
millions—far more than tbe Ral
ston junta; but,unlike that reckless
but public spirited syndicate, tbey
have shown themselves to be most
solicitous to hold on to what tbey
have made. No flourishing brauch

public enterprises, bave owed their
inspiration to the intellect and lib
erality of this fabulously rich firm.
Tbe money which Sau Franciscans
dosired to see go iulo supporting

Division of the State.
The Herald has been foremost
iv endeavoring to crystalizs the
wide-spread opinion which prt
vails iv .Southern California iv
favor of the erection of a new and
homogeneous commonwealth in
this section of the State. We have
shown that territorially South
California would be a symmetri
cal, compact aud good-sized State;
tbat it would be eveuly divided in
politics; that it would not cost
more (if as much) to run a separate
State government than it does to
bear our own proportion of a polit
ical system which seems to be only
beneficial to ilia center of Ihe
State; that we could make our
selves felt iv tlie councils of the na
tion as a State, whereas now we
are wi liiout voice and without in
fluenoe at Washington; that we
would relieve ourselves of the dis
tressing position in which we are
now placed iv being merely a tail
to the great kite of Sau Francisco;
that we would give ourselves an
individuality abroad, and make
our section a reputation as a Slate
which it can never uchieve as a
niero appendage to tlie present cen
ter of power on this coast; that in
stead of being swallowed up and
obliterated by tbe rest of the Slate
we should become a distinctive
unit iv tbe political system of tbe
Pacific coast, and be enabled to
further ourpeculiaraud distinctive
interests iuateud of seeing them set
aside and overshadowed by tlie in
terests of the more populous,
wealthy and powerful portion of
our present State. We have fre
quently set forth those and oilier
reasons for separation, and there Is
a very decided uuanimity of senti
ment in favor of it among our
largest as wull as smallest tax-pay
ers. It has seemed to us that an
event Is nbout to take place when
it would be proper anil perhaps
pructlcal to set Hie ball of State
division in motion. Tlie represen
tation of Southern California in tbe
Constitutional Convention will
show by its disparity to the
population it represents how un
justly this part of the .State has
been treated. That disparity will
stand as a powerful argument
against a further continuance of
connection with a Slate which
could treat it so unjustly. Tlie del
gates from Southern California
might take the first step toward
dissolution by insisting on a gene
ral clause In the Constitution pro
viding for a division of tho State
under certain conditions. What
these conditions should be tbe dele
gates will determine; but we believe
tbat tbe only material one should be
be that when a certain extent of con
tiguous territory possesses a given
population, it may, ou the affirma
tive Tote of two-thirds of the peo
ple residiug in said territory, set
Itself up as a separate and distinct
commonwealth California has
territory enough to make Ihree
fine Slates. Noith California,
Central California snd South Cali
fornia would form three very sym
etrlcal commonwealth", nnd will
necessarily, in the nature of things,
become distinct and independent
States. It la only a question of
time when separation will come,
and we submit that it is the duly
of the delegates to tbe Consti
tutional Convention to pro
vide a way in that 'nstrti
uicnt by which State division can
be legally effected. Wo call par
ticularly on th.. members of the
Convention fmm this nsrt of the
Slate to piepare a provision to this
effect, as it is probable that South
California will be the first section
to move practically hi the mat

it was held that the latter'*evi

tained. This leaves Curlee's case
to rest upon its merits. Satisfied
witli this tbe pr.isccutiou rested

rescinded which required him to
preserve the stadia quo and that he
should only use the troops lo pre
serve Ihe peace. The President
had authorized him (Matthews) to
communicate this to Representa

also, a telegram from himself and
Levy to Qov. Nicliolls saying they
had such assurance from ihe Presi
dent and a guarantee from Slier

that the President is correctly rep

came a telegram from Nicliolls to

Witness here recited the inter
view that transpired between Mr.
Hewitt and himself immediately
after tlie Democratic caucus, in
which the Democratic parly bad
agreed that the count should go on
to a peaceable termination. Wit
ness had ooraplained that tbe Dem
ocratic caucus had not demanded
as a condition of tho counting in
proceedings that Louisiana and
South Carolina were to be freed
from bayonet rule. If Louisiana was
left to herself she must trade or
light. Trading would lose two
United States Senators to the
Democrats and fighting might
plunge tbe country Into revolution.
Hewitt responded Hut the Demo
cratic party could not afford to
take the responsibility of plunging
the country Into strife, upsetting
values and disturbing trade and
they would put this fraud upoi.
the shoulders of Ibe Republican
party and go before Ihe country
four years hence. Witness replied
that Louisiana could not endure
carpet-hug rule longer and would
iusist that the bayonels be with
drawn. Hewitt promised to place
these views before his friend*in
the House to do what they could in
the interest of Louisiana and
South Carolina, Such progress was
made among Democratic member*
by friends of the South that, at one
time, the number of flllihutter*
reached 110, enough to deter the
progress of the count. It was then
that Sherman sent for witness and
these conferences occurred and
guarantees were given.

emphatically that there was a bar

and that the Republican conferee*
did not insist on ceasing to lilli
