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.

THE ALDINE,
An Illustrated Monthly Journal; uni
versally admitted to be handsomest
Periodical in the World. 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

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.
If any subscriber should Indicate a pref
erence fir a figure subjeot.the publishers will
send "Thoughts of Home," a new and beauti
ful chromo, 14x20 Inches representing a little
Italian exile whose speaking eyes betray th«
longings of his heart.

AS THE CHARMING CHARAC-'

especially that most favored section called
Santa Barbara, becomes known to the world,
it is not surprising that a widespread ami
growing interest in tills region should be
awakened. It Is theconstant aim of the Press
to furnish perfectly reliable Information on al
tiolnts of Interest to tourists, invalids and
lome-seekers, which we are now able to .do
witli greatly increased facilities.
While tlie PRESS seeks to promote the
prosperity of all Southern California by al) L
gltlmate and honorable methods, It is more
directly Interested Intlie growth and coming
greatness ot Santa Ilarbara. The unequaled
loveliness of the climate, its almost Incredible
healthfulness. the beauty of the scenery, th
wondrous variety and fertility of the 1011, th
almost unlimited range of products whie

not be controverted, In the columns of the
