Fisher San Francisco Schneider Gricrson it Co Arizona City THE COAST IilXE. i owns fccenery Mock Stages Koaus The .Metropolis, etc. Sax Francisco, August G. It may interest a portion of The Citizex readers to give a "brief account of the coast route overland between San Ber nardino and this city arriving here Thursday evening last, just one week from the time I reached the former place. Stopped over at different points three days and four nights. San Bernardino, the last before the jumping-off place toward Arizona, is the most substantial settlement ac cording to its extent, of any in south ern California. It is laid out Mormon fashion north, south, etc.; no old adobes crumbling around like the re mains of some crooked fortification. Any one investing in real estate there now, will realize handsomely in view of the railroads and current improve ments. To Los Angeles, Go miles, the road is hard and smooth with the ex ception of a mile or two. The cele brated Cocomungo wine establishment is the chief attraction on the way. Ben. Holladay owns this bit of stage line, just to keep his hand in, I sup pose. It is all the stage property he does own now, and ho has no business to be bothered with that. It is well conducted. His steamers having: no opposition again, I found it about as cheap to take the coast line stage would get here several days sooner, besides I wanted to come the overland route. Los Angeles is pushing itself up through the old Spanish walls quite effectively some fine buildings on the way. Still, a few barricades to con nect those old mud lines of outer- works remaining, and the city of An- els would be effectively fortified. The place appoars in a thriving condi tion notwithstanding dry seasons, And altogether it is a little city in mcst every sense which a State so new should feel proud of. It has depended so far on irrigation as a rule in agri culture. San Bernardino has more water for this purpose than Los Angeles. The Coast Stage Line is the prop erty of Flint, Bixby & Co. the sheep men resident at San Juan. They have no use for this line, but were compelled to take it through transactions. It carries the daily mail between Gilroy and San Diego. It is entitled to the name of first-class in stage business. It runs the good old leather-lined Con cord coach, four to six fine horses on lo-mile stretches. I should think Ben. Holladay would possess himself of this property ere long, and havo a pretty good monopoly of passenger traffic south of the metropolis. The opposition steamers cut up the through business for the stage company, but it looks as though the way trade were always important. Owing to the stoppages of the steamers, the stage gets through on as good time, besides running every day. The fares from ban Bernardino to ban Francisco, in cluding railroad from Gilroy, amounts to $25; the feed to about half as much more. The cars now run 20 miles further south on the Central corn. pany's road (to the town of Hollistor) but owing to mail contracts, and branch line of stages owned by and connecting with Flint, Bixby & Co, at San Juan with Monterey, the stagi travel will not be shortened this year, at least: besides, some road-makin would be involved in the change. The company have lately whipped up and caught up six or eight hours, which devoted to sleep or rest on the south ern side of Salhas valley. So, you see, were the 30 miles staging cut off, or a change to Hollistor, besides these hours gained, you would get mails at least 12 hours earlier than jiow. But you must bide the time. Leaving Los Angeles at 5 P. 1L, run over rolling prairie to ban Bueuaven tura; smooth road except a certain stretch Avhere the gophers liave alway undermined it, and with, a light load the very devil is to pay with you Quartermaster's clerk, returninj his mammy from Camp Apache, and myself were the only occupants that night, and we were thrown about. and "telescoped" together in great distress At daybreak, and after breakfast at the above town, the scene is remarka bly reviving. The mountains crowi the road down into the very breakers of the ocean, and. you are carried along as pretty sea-beach drive for many miles, as there is in the world The wheels of. the coach are, switched and washed at times by the breakm waves. Beaching Santa Barbara at S A. if., thence out over picturesque foothills, and a sharp mountain to climb, cutting off a number of mile: and leaving the oia uaviotta Jrass road ouite westward toward Point Conc3i)tiou. I look upon Santa Bar bara settlement, its soil and climate as flourishing and inviting as any in the State, but I was disappointed, in the looks ot the town proper; the blend ing of old Spanish hovels with the modern improvements, is top general and noticeable. .Now, Los Angel ;s is unfolding itself like a silkworm pushing off the old shell from within and you can pay your money and take a slice ot either view; but banta Bar bara is a sort of architectural niisce genation throughout. This may to charitable and otherwise excusable I simply remark it. Once up the Santa Juez mountain the road is carried at a considerable elevation a long distance, or until the Salinas Plains are reached. Alter tcrnate hills, mountains, and level runs, with few places in the entire distance, however, that the road has ever been changed from what nature made it. In the Spring-time, the adobe stretches are muddy, but .most of the time these several hundred miles of hi 'hway are so smooth and hard that horses arc subject to "jam as on a plank road. Xo dust to speak ot anywhere, San Luis Obispo county is all roll ing, and a good pasture region; and the country between San Buenaveu tura and Salinas Plains, everywhero dotted with live oak, is otherwise tim bered and good to look at. "When the grass and flowers are in season, I can imagine no more pleasing landscape or trip to take than that between Los Angeles and Gilroy; and the continua tion southward to San Diego is no doubt interesting as well. 'Whoever comes over the present divide looking down upon the town of San Juan, at this season, Avill see "a scene tor a painter and no nonsense. At all these old towns, the red tiled roofs lend a pecu liar charm to the situation, after all; and the brick walls, etc., of modern improvements seem to paint things into a pretty jumble. The universal 'old mission, or cathedral, is at all points along the coast route as usual. 1 have used the word "settlement purposely where speaking of towns and neighborhoods, for how discon nectedly and sparsely the State is cul tivated to the southward! Were it not for a sheep-herder's shed here and there, the stage stations would appear as lonely almost on the coast line as in Arizona. Speaking of sheep again, a word as to the "drouth" in California, short crops, etc. There is yet little or no suffering among horses, or cattle, much less sheep. It is feared there may be on the Salinas plains, but I never saw grass-fed stock look much better than all along, and thousands were in sight.t Still, prices are reasonable; in some instances very cheap, and a good year to invest. San Luis Obispo is perhaps the safest county in the State for grazing. Colonel W. W. Holistor. 1 ivps arm flourishes among about 90,000 head of sheep round toward Point Concep tion, in Santa Barbara, besides having thousands in San Luis. He left Mt. Vernon, Ohio, with others on a drive overland, arriving in California with 700 for his share, in 1854. From the increase thereof, his estate is now esti mated as worth two millions! The party were three years on the road coming the southern. route dril the animate from Ohio through, stop jjiujj aioug in juissoun, JN ew Mexico, etc. I found the metropolis as usual in O i - mo oummer nine, looked like a snow storm on the evenino- nf nmunl and felt something like one in nonf-msi: with the Territory left behind. But with its pleasant forenoons rhn ble afternoons as a rule this time of year, and Avith all its faults T fpl somehow as if "it were rood tn h here. ALy first advent was when the city was most thriving, and its ideas biggest, and mv visit or sninum m- is at the dullest time and the people most down hearted, vet T fool ,f,m laith in th -i outcome than ever. If I had more invested in it n.nd ings, I should hesitate fore leaving it again. To-day has been a throughout, and the Itiilin 11 lln vn ruTi aerea it extra-interesting by their eel eDration ot "United Inhr" Home as the Capital once more. The orass-mountea she wolf, suckling the mianc lounuers ot the Eternal City, were solid emblems of pioneering in deed, and should be oWichofl k?- oil good Arizonians as emnmnr. i,m,;i,,u gods. I don't know but Eomulus and .Kemus had a softer thing suckin"- civ ilization out of the four-footed savage breast than the people of ArizoSa have in their eternal tug of war with the Apaches.

For the benefit of our Santa Fe ex changes, Colonel Pope, and those officers here who hold it legal to con fiscate the property of every man in Arizona who trades with the Indians without a permit from them to do so, we give section seven of Act of Con gress, approved February 28, 1859, which is law to-day: Sec. 7. And be it further enaetpd. That the Commissioner of Indian Af fairs, under the direction of the Secre tary ot the Interior, is herebv author ized and directed to prepare rules and regulations for the crovernment of thi- Indian service, and for trade and in tercourse with the Indian tribes and the regulations of their affairs: aiul when approved by the President shall be submitted to the Congress of the United States for its aooroval: nro- vided, that such laws, rules, and reg ulations proposed shall not be in. force until enacted oy uongress. Now let the people note these facts : that neither the Indian Department nor the President of the United States can make laws, rules, or regulations for trade and intercourse with the In dians, which can be enforced until they are enacted by Congress.
