Wilmington, Jan. .">, 1H74. Editor Herald: The harlior ques tioa has been quite thorouirhly dis cussed, and yet there may be room tor a word or two more. There is no difference of opinion as to the neces sity of bringing ship and rail together, hut the people are divided in opinion, as to the quickest and most economical mode of doing it. The engineers are confident that the dredging of a chan nel through the bar is entirely practi cable, and as it is a work which they have been commissioned to do, it is their intention to perform it, as soon as the rough weather is over. The building of the breakwater was merely preparatory to this, and unless it is done, all the money and time spent on the breakwater go for nothing. The dredging of the channel is affirmed to be not only practicable, but necessary. Tf the railroad were extended to San Pedro, and a wharf built out to deep water, ships would have no harbor, but only an open roadstead, exposed, as they now are, to all the storms and swells of .the ocean. In very rough weather thay could not lay alongside the pier and discharge their cargoes but would be subject to vexatious de lays. Inside the bar Is a deep and spa cious harbor, where ships may float in safety, and discharge their cargoes at any time; for the water is always calm and free from ocean swells. Now, after ships have crossed the bar, and wittered the harbor, it is evidently the part of wisdom for them to appaoach as near to "Wilmington as possible. How near they can approach is the question. The cnpttiln of the Mohongo has often stated, that if allowed to do so, he could, even now, cross the bar at high tide, and place his ship along side the wharf at Wilmington. It is admitted that the water at the present wharf is too shallow for large vessels, and sometimes at low tide, the ground is almost bare. Much misapprehen sion has arisen from this fact. Only a few hundred feet down the channel, at a point opposite the quartermaster's building's, the water is seven feet deep at low tide, a depth sufficient for ves sels of a tonnage large enough to do all the carrying trade between San Fran cisco and Wilmington. The Wilming ton Vharf could easily be extended to the point mentioned, and if it is not done, private parties will construct a wharf from the quartermaster's build ings to a point in the channel opposite. They are now nearly ready to com mence the work and will be certain to have it completed by the time the channel is dredged through the liar. There will be no failure. Capitalists have taken the work in hand, and be fore many months roll away, opposi tion steamers will discharge their car goes on the new wharf In Wilmington. The figures about the depth of water in the channel and on the bar, which I gave in a former letter, were ob tained from the pilot who has navi gated the channel for many years, and who has perfect faith that the channel, though crooked in some places, can yet be navigated by vessels of 1,000 tons, to the point mentioned, when the haf shall have been dredged. ('. PACIFIC COAST ITEMS. Jones, the former agent for the Flathead Indians In Washington Ter ritory, has been arrested on a charge of misapplication of annuity goods while agent. An idea of the trade be] formed from the fact that since September 85th, a period of seventy days, one firm has dispatched to different sections of Arizona 1,447,190 pounds of freight. The total cost of fences in California Is $29,000,000. The annual cost of tho same, including repairs and interest, Js $8,000,000. The experiment of raising cotton is being tried in various portions of the State, and with the most gratifying results. A small propeller, the Emerald Isle, only forty-five feet in length, running on Lake'Tahoe, is the fastest boat of her size in the United States. She makes fifteen miles an hour. In Greeley; Colorado, lands which were comparatively' worthless before the Introduction of irrigation, now bring from $20 to $100 per acre If irrigation will do that m Colorado, why will it not do as much and more in California. George Wilkes, of the New York Spirit, has sued John F. Chamberlain the owner of True Blue, and who was in California recently, for libel, and the latter iusists there has been no libel, a id that Wilkes is a forger and a bad man generally. There Is no longer complaint of a scarcity of water in Carson river. The late thaw has sent floods of water pour ing Into that stream from hill, vale and mountain gorge. All the mills are in full blast and their stamps out roar the combined waters. The White Pine (Nev.) News has been shown very rich samples of ore from the Indian mine, situated in Sho shone District, about 150 miles from Hamilton, which assay up to the thou sands. The ledge is represented as ex tending a distance of a mile and a half, allowing rich croppings all the way. An incline has been Bunk at one point to the depth of forty-five feet, all the way in ore. The bard times in Pioche (Nev.) have had a depressing effect upon the local columns of the Record. It is said that one pawnbroker there holds over 2,000 revolvers and bowie-knives, deposited witli him by impecunious fighters as collateral security. When times brighten up and those pleasant little item-makers are redeemed, the readers of the Record will smile again. California will this year prodnce over 12,000,000 gallons of wine valued at $3,500,000, 2,000,000 pounds of grapes for table use, and 250,000 pounds of raisins. Forty thousand acres are de voted in California to the cultivation of the grape crop, audit is estimated that $,000,000 acres of land in the State are especially adapted to grape culture.

A Representative and Chamji ion of American Taste. NOT Foil BALK t.N NEWS OR BOOK STOKKS. THE ALDINE, while Issued with all the regularity, has none of the temporary or time ly interest characteristic of ordinary periodi cals. It Is an elegant miscellany ofpure, light and graceful literature ; and a collection of pictures, the rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and white. Although each succeed ing number affords a fresh pleasure to Its friends, the real value and beauty of The Al dlne will be most appreciated after it lias been bound up at tho close of the year. While oth er publications may claim superior cheapness, as compared with rivals ofaslmllarclass,The Aldlne is a unique and original conception alone and unapprouched—absolutely without competition in price or character. The posses sor of a complete volume cannot duplicate the quantity of tine paper and engravings in any other shape or number of volumes for ten times Its cost; and then, there are chronios, besides ! Art Department. I*7 i. The Illustrations of Tiie Aldlne have won a world-wide reputation, and In the urt-centers of Europe it is an admitted fact that its wood cuts are examples of the highest perfection ever attained. The common prejudice in favor of "steel-plates,"is rapidly yielding to a more educated and discriminating taste which recognizes the advantages of superior artistic quality with greater facility of production. The wood cuts of The Aldine possess all the delicacy and elaborate finish of the most cost ly steel plate, while they afford v better ren dering of the artist's orlgnal. To fully realize the wonderful work which The Aldine is doing for the cause of art-cul ture in America, It is only necessary to con sider the cost to the people of any other decent representations of the productions of greal painters. In addition to designs by the members of' the National Academy, and other noted American nrtlsts. The Aldine will produce examples of the best foreign masters, select ed with a view to the highest artistic success and greatest general interests. Thus the subscriber to The Aldine will, at a trifling cost, enjoy in his own home the pleasures and refilling influences of true art. The quarterly tinted plates for 1K74 will be by Thomas Moran and J. D. Woodward. The Christmas Issue for 1874 will contain special designs appropriate* to the season, by our best artists, and will surpass In attractions any of Its predecessors. Premium lor 1H74. F.vry subscriber to The Aldine for the year 1874 wil l receive a pair of chromos. The origi nal pictures were painted In oil for the publish er of The Aldine, by Thomas Moran, whose great Colorado picture was purchased by Con gress for ten thousand dollars. The subjects were chosen to represent "The Fast" and "The West." One Is a view In The White Mountains, New Hampshire; the other gives The Cliffs ofi Green River, Wyoming Terri tory. The difference In the nature of the scenes themselves is a pleasingcontrastjand affords a good display ot the artist's scope and coloring. The chromos arc each worked from thirty distinct plates, nnd are in size (18x16) and appearance exact fac similes of the origi nals. The presentation of a worthy example of America's greatest landscape painter to the subscribers of The Aldine was a bold butpecu llarly happy idea, and its sucessful realiza tion Is attested by the following testimonial over the signature of Mr. Moran himself. Newark, N. J., Sept. 20th, 1873 Messrs. James Sutton & Co. Gknti.kmen,—'l am delighted with the proofs In color of your chromos. They are wonderfully successful representations by mechanical process of the original paintings Very respectfully, THOMAS MORAN. The chroms are In every senso American. They are by an orlgnal American process, with material of American manufacture, from designs of American scenery, by an American artist, and presented to subscri bers of the first successful American Art Journal. If no better because of all this, they will certainly possess an interest no foreign production can inspire, and neither are they any the worse If by reason of peoilar facili ties of production, they cost trie publishers only a trifle, while oqual in every - respect to other chromos that are sold singly for double the subscription price of The Aldine. Persons of taste will prljse these pictures for them selves—not for the price they did or did not cost, and will appreciate the enterprise ttiat renders their distribution possible.
