George Prldham, agent of the Coast Fine, San Diego and San Bernardino stages, left the city yesterday, per steamer Mohongo, for San Francisco. Mr. Lehman, on Spring street, has a very line assortment of furniture of the Otlingcr make. It is quite a line show which his store makes, with its $20,000 worth of stock. Leon Baldwin, who Umi returned from San Francisco, called yesterday, and expressed himself gratified with the business-like appearance of the Hkrald office. Qoiler, the wagon maker, is get ting quite out of stock, so rapid is his present sale. He has the Mitchell itacine wagon on hand, as well as those of his own make. The proprietor of the White House restaurant appeared before the Mayor yesterday, and increased the city trees sury to the amount of SO for "chas tising" his partner in life. The idea of raising a subscription for puttinga clock in the lower of the High School building, is meeting the approval of all citizens. It is to he hoped that it will he pushed through.

NOrdllngcr, the enterprising Jew eller, is now manufacturing watches which bear the imprint of his name. The excellence of his work is such as to justify him sending watches far and wide, with his name engraved on the work. The ollice was visited yesterday by a large number of ladies, curious to know the mysteries of a printing of fice. They were fully gratified and instructed on all points of interest in connection with the presses and gen eral work. The distractions were most pleasant. Yesterday afternoon a yoke of oxen hitched to a dump cart, became fright ened at a passing train, at the corner af Aliso and Alameda streets. They started on a run down towards the Aliso mills, but not being as fast as the train, tlie engineer had to hold up and let them pass. The machinery now in use at the Woolen Mills has proved quite inade quate to till the large supply of orders that are coming iv.

A new workman will arrive on the next steamer to at tend to a special branch of their bu siness. One of the most active men iv town is John Osborne. As he says in his advertisement, anything from an en velope to a piano, is iv his line, and he will deliver a steam engine or a love letter with equal care. His drays, wagons, &c, are of the hest possible manufacture, and his reliability guar anteed by the fact that Wells, Fargo & Co. entrust all their business to him. A piece of well cooked corned l>eef and v nice salad are uot to be despised even by a professional free luncller. Mr. Bresson prepares daily the most recherche cold lunches imaginable, und a shoulder of lamb, assisted by a well mixed lettuce salad, is never out of place between the hours of twelve and one o'clock, (Cefa vout convicut Monsieur Joseph f) Henry Stoll the proprietor of the Sisla \Vorks went east yesterday for a flying visit to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, lie did not forget to call nt this office to have a farewell shake of the hand, and to take several copies of the Hkkai.d to distribute east.

Yesterday afternoon a gentleman from the rooral district" sold Sam uel Jones a load of wood, and was toltl to go through the barber shop and open the side door. He entered the front door, and strode along the room until he tunic in contact with a large mirror, and was mulled for a few moments to see how he was going to get into the back room. One of the barbers politely showed him the right direction to take, but he still insisted on " going through that ar mirror," and for a few moments could not be convinced that it warn't the door.

This Is the first time that this great artist lias ever visited Los Angeles, and on her financial success will greatly de pend the visits of other celebrated singers. Some time ago an article ap peared in the KxprrHH, as to the pay ing of entertainments in this city, it was decided that, as a rule, they do not pay. And now Los Angeles is to receive a visit from a lady whom crowned heads hnve delighted to hon or, and who has received ovations from the most cultivated American citizens in the United Htates. She has sung, during her life, with Grifll, Gar citi, Persiani, Ruhinl, Tamburini and Lablache. Thai berg and Dohler have been proud to he her accompanists, Moscheles, the master of Mendelssohn and Abbe Lis/.t, counts her as a pupil. Her voice is the purest soprano tfogato, her enunciation and expression Incom parable. It was the good fortune of one of the Hkrald Editors to meet her in Melbourne five years ago where, with the wonderful pi anist and viK'iilist Lascelles her con certs were a series of triumphs. Men delssohn has said of her I hut England litis givan three great singers to Italy. Clara Novello, Catherine Hayes and Anna Bishop. Her name is intimate ly associated with those of Orisi, Vinr dot, Alboni, Cruvelli and Lind. As a linguist she is unequalled, for she speaks German, French, Russian, Danish, Italian, English, .Spanish, Swedish and other languages. For three years she sang at Naples in the great Opera House of the San Carlo. I n Moscow she played Alien in Fro J)io rot,* in the Russian Language. Social ly she has heen the frequeiitand honor ed guest of royalty, and endeared her self to all who ever knew her. She is a member of the Philharmonic Socie ties ot Copenhagen, Florence, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Rome and London. Every honor that science and wealth could pay her bus been liberally bestowed. As an Oiß'rntic Artist, a ballad Singcror an interpre ter of oratorio music she is equally at home. Now she is making her fare well tri]*, and some of her last notes are to be BUOg amid the orange groves of Ixis Angeles. The arrangements for her concert are very complete. Mr. Broderick's store will contain the plan of the Hall, und seats can be reserved for either the ti rst, second or third concerts. In the next issue reference will be made in the Hkrald to the fame of Mr. Wilkic the Tenor, Mr. (lildcr the Pianist, and Mr. Uottschalk the bro ther of the immortal "Seven Oc taves." Pel roleopolls.

Tiiis is the widest Oil Lead in the dis trict. Mr- Michul Hrophy is on the spot looking niter the Oil Company's interest. The .subjoined letter from Mr. S. D.
