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
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
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.

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

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.

of sheep round toward Point Concep

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

A Section of LaAV.
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. A 11 '
