TUESDAY IAN, 6,1874.
CITY AND SUBURBS. At Harris & Jacoby's (-'ash Store Freeh Garden, Grafs and Alfalfa seed. The orange crop la moving pretty lively. Judge O'MelVeny took his sent yes terday as judge of the County Court. Passengers from San Francisco, l»y the steamer Pacific, will arrive in this city on this morning's train. There are several hail loud holes in town that need tilling. Will the City Council give them attention?. A pair of curls have been found on the sidewalk and left at, this office. The owner can have them by calling for them. Two teams left the depot yesterday, one to San Bernardino, consigned to to W. MoT)., and one to Cucainonga to J. L. L All the public schools of this city will re-open on Monday, Jan. 12th, except the School which will open on Tuesday, Jan. 18th, Mr. Wilson who advertised for a gold buckle which he had lost was happily rewarded by having it re turned*. One of Mr. Pitpuy's employees found it. The receipts of bullion at tlie depot yesterday were quite heavy, footing Up 1,000 bars, or over forty tons. A part of this came in on Sunday, but was included in the amount received yesterday. Col. J. G. Howard and H. T. Haz ard have joined In a law partnership, and A. A. Wilson and P. \V. Dooner have done the same. Another of those "red clay" cross walks that friend Messmer referred to in his communication the other day has been constructed, this time be tween the Herald office ami Temple block. Passengers for San Francisco by the steamer Pacific, will leave this city on the three o'clock train on Thursday afternoon, Instead of Satur day, as advertised. Mrs. Irene Hunter, of San Bernar dino; a lady who has been abandoned by her husband, after he hail incum bered her home, and reduced her nearly to destitution is stopping at the Clarendon, and seeking assistance. Calrin Fletcher, Esq., a wealthy and influential citizen of Indianapolis, who has been looking around tho country for some time, has returned to his headqiiartes at the Pico House well satisfied with the appearance of things. It is quite likely that he will invest. Mr. (i. W. Morgan, the agent of the Los Angeles Fruit Association, in forms us that the company has sold every alternate lot in their tract to a gentleman of means, who intends taking immediate steps for their im provement and settlement. He says that it is his intention to have a fam ily on every lot, before the expiration of another year. Those who are look ing for houses would do well to exam ine this trici. Newspaper-men are sometimes ac cused of being liars, and to have too little regard for truth, &c, but a more noble array of truth-telling "typos" than were 'present at one of our city courts yesterday afternoon, never graced a court-room, and, it seems to us, suffices to prove that, so far as Los Angeles newspaper-men are concerned such slanderous accusations are en tirely without foundation. Each and every one of them told the truth, and swore to it. In compliance with the importuni ties of his many friends, Mr. Morris has at last cut up his splendid vine yard into lots to suit purchasers. Lo cate*! on Main street near the city, it is one of tlie best places for business men to purchase homesteads. The lots ex tend from Main through to Charity street; the ground is high and dry with no fear of frost. Street cars will soon be running in front of the tract, the vineyard is in full bearing, ami produces'the best grapes in the city; the orange trees are laden with tine fruit, and the Sicily lemon trees are in full bearing. The tract will be sold in wholeor in part to suit purchasers. The first of the Winter season Monthly Sunday Evening Concerts by the Fort street M. E. Church Sabbath School, was held on Sunday evening last, and was attended by such a large number of people as to till the Church to its utmost capacity. The exercises consisted of music by the Church choir, and chorus of children, read ings, recitations, etc., and were highly pleasing throughout. Some of the recitations, especially that of petite Helen Widney, eliciting "audible smiles" from the audience. These Sunday evening concerts, besides ex hibiting the advancement and profi ciency of the Sunday School pupils, serve to give our people a pleasing and at the same time a moral entertain ment, drawiug to them many who sel dom attend church on any other occa sion, and who thus may be led to in terest themselves more in religious af fairs. We hope to see them inaugura ted in connection with the other Sab bath Schools of the city. The Races To-day. The management of the New Year's Kace Meeting announce an attractive programme to-day, the first thing on the list being the Ladies' Phsetourace. Several of our fair horse-women have signified their intention of participa ting, and from the character of the teams they drive, and their known ability in handling the reins, there will doubtless be an exciting contest. Following at 2 p. M., the Hurdle race, a mile dash over four hurdles, takes place. The meeting winds up with a trotting match, three in five, to har ness, for a purse of $100; $75 to first horse and $25 to the second, free to all horses that have never beaten three minutes. The [Races Yesterday. There was a pretty fair attendance at the Park yesterday, the most of those present being sporting men. The first race—a single dash of a mile—between Bay Jim, Sultan, and Bally, was won by Bay Jim, in 1:57. The second race was a trotting match, two in three, and was won by Gen. Rose's black mare, (Beautiful Belle, Enterprise taking the second heat. The crowd though not a large one, was full of spirit and considerable money changed hands. The pro gramme to-day as noted in another place, is an attractive one, and ourclt izens cannot do better than pay the Park a visit. The Ladies' Phieton race for which there are three entries, und the Hurdle race, four entries, are the great attractions, and will draw a crowd of people. The skating rink is already becom ing a favorite resort of our mirth loving people. Mr. Glray informs us that hereafter, ladies will be admitted /rec during the afternoons, and have the use of skates which is a Very liber al arrangement on his part. Last night there were present, skating a number of beaux and belles, and belles waiting for beaux, who proba bly arrived as soon as business hours were over. /V "Skating Carnival" in masque would be a jolly tiling to hold before the season is over. It would be "*o funny," you know. The Spanish Bandits at Kingston. The Visalia Delta of January Ist gives the following particulars of the late robbery at Kingston, a brief ac count of which we hud by telegraph: On Friday evening last, between the hours of 7 and 8 o'clock, the notorious outlaw Vasquez and his band of some twelve or fifteen men, entered the quiet little village of Kingston, Fres no county, and robbed the* entire town of all valuables they could convenient ly take with them. They entered town by the bridge on the north side, leaving their horses in charge of ono of their number, near the bridge, so that their approach might be as quiet as possible. On crossing the bridge they met a man on foot, who was im mediately gagged and tied by them before he could give any alarm. Leav ing him, they passed on to the hotel, where they met Douglas of this place, and Gilroy, who were at supper. Vas quez was immediately recognized by these gentlemen. Gilroy made some resistance by striking the robber with his chair. After snapping a cap at him the robber felled him to the Hoor, striking him with the pistol. Both men were then tied. They took from Douglas some coin and a valuable watch —one that was highly prized, it having belonged to his deceased father. Gilroy was taken to the store of Jacob & Einstein for the purpose of opening tke safe; each one in the store was tied down, their watches taken, and their pockets rifled of coin. From this place the robbers entered the store of Sweet & Co., again tying each one and taking what they could get. They tied Sweet standing up, and then or dered him to fall on his face. Sweet begged not to be treated so roughly, but they showed no mercy. When Sweet was getting down one of tlie robbers tried to take a ring from his finger, hut S. begged for it, telling him it was a present from his wife; so the robbers left it. The amount of booty by this time was $430 from the hotel, $800 from Jacob Einstein and $60 from Sweet & Co., together with many watches and other valuables, which will amount to several thou sand dollars. While the robbers were in and around the store of Sweet & Co., Sulli van and another gentleman at the ho tel, hearing the robbers at their work, got a small reinforcement and made an attack upon them, firing some forty shots, and beyond all doubt wounding some of the desperadoes, as various places on the bridge were found to be bloody after their retreat. When the tiring commenced upon the marauders their leader gave orders to retreat, which they hastily did. Crossing the bridge, they mounted their horses and rode off These gentlemen deserve great credit for the manner in which they acted, und which perhaps saved much valuable property by causing a hasty retreat of the desperadoes. As soon as daylight began to uawn, various parties started in pursuit, many going from Visalia. Alter fol lowing the robbers some miles, they came upon a Spaniard who claimed to belong to a sheep camp near by, but when taken there could not be identi fied. His stories were so conflicting that he was taken to Kingston and identified as one of the party. He finally confessed, stating that he was left behind to take care of two wound ed men and bury them if they died. He would not tell where the wounded men were, and as yet they have not been found. This desperado was taken by the officers to jail at Fresno, to await the action of the grand jury. Reports are continually reaching us of the doings of these desperadoes. Al most every herder and sheep man on their line of march has suffered more or less. Report of the County Physician.

WAS HI N C TO N. Washington, Jan. 4. Congress will reassemble to-mor row. The Supplemental Civil Rights bill will likely come up and probably pass. The United states and Mexican Commission has resumed business. The claim of Mexico for $27,000,000 is in the hands of Sir Fdwurd Thornton, umpire. A postofiice has been established at San Simeon, San Luis Obispo county, 15. Pico, Postmaster. It is now believed that Williams' appointment as Chief Justice will be confirmed. The Commissioner General of the Land Office has decided that the Pal tent for the raneho Ballos, Los Ange les county, must be delivered person ally to parties in interest, or the hold ers of last powers of attorney from such parties. Washington, Jan. 5. Cutting; down (he Kstlmntes At tempted killing' OppoHitlon to Williams. In preparing the army|bill, Gen, Sherman and the Secretary of the Treasury, were consulted in regard to the cost of our forces on the Texas, New Mexico and Arizona frontier. It was found impracticable to reduce the force much at present, though Gen. Sherman expressed the opinion that if railways were in operation through on that line, about $5,000,000, might be saved in the military estimates, be side a reduction of the appropriation for the military establishment proper. The committe decided to give only $1,200,000 for fortifications instead of $3,000,000 asked, and also to reduce the river and harbor appropriations from $10,000,000 asked, to less than $3,000,000, making the total reduc tions in the estimates of the War De partment about $20,000,000. The committee also ascertained that under the Treasury construction of the law in regard to unexpended balances, fixing the limit of two years to the last warrant drawn, the Quarter master's department has accumu lated a surplus of $3,000,000 which has not been reported to Congress, and re specting which the law requires no Joport. This will be covered into the Treasury by an amendment to the law regarding such balances. A New York special says an attempt was made on New Years' day to kill Judge L. D. Morris, formerly District Attorney of Brooklyn, with an infer nal machine. As the Judge was ab sent nt the time of its reception, the box was put aside until his return. When be opened it In his bedroom surrounded by his family, the snap as of a revolver was heard, and it was dis- Aooered to be an infernal machine. Frelinghuyson, it is said, Is opposed to the confirmation of Williams, making six of the seven members of tho Judiciary Committee united in that view, Cr«M«ell states oflllcally that the Increased subsidy of half a million to the China line, will not be needed, owing to the inability of the Company to comply with the law granting the subsidy. The prevailing opinion at Washing ton, is that Pavia's assumption of power was made with the consent and approval of Castelar. The bankruptcy bill of the Senate Judiciary Committee, offered in lien ofthe House proposition of repeal, re quires the concurrence by one fourth of the insolvent's creditors to force him into bankruptcy. It allows protested paper to run sixty days, and permits a majority of the creditors to take the case out of bankruptcy at any time. It also permits any number of creditors to make a composition of their own claims, after the British system. Speaker Blame expresses a decided opinion that the tax on tea, coffee and incomes, will not be restored. Nkw Yoiik, Jan. 4.

Scott will be in Washington in a few days and will then decide on the course for the Company to pursue. MiTllnif «f tti* Legleli-tiircUo««r«l for Tn«M|ue«. San Fkancisco, Jan. S. Tlie Legislature met to-day. A bill was introduced in the Senate, offering a reward of $15,000 for the capture of Vasquez and his murderous gang. Bowers' San Diego railroad bill, granting the right of way, and certain lands in that city, to the Texas and Pa cific railroad, was indefinitely poat poned. • \ Fall ol n Wall A Bntrli ol' Convic tion* Dividends Man Killed. The wall of an old building on the corner of Jackson and New Montgom ery streets fell this morning, while several men were at work. All but two escaped without injury. One of these hail his leg broken; the other whose name is Alexander Lamed, was completely buried by the falling wall, and was taken out in a dying condi tion. His face is mashed, and both arms and one leg broken. His injuries are fatal There is no blame cast on any one for the accident. KateVarncy, an old offender, was arrested for grand larceny, and as the evidence is pretty conclusive, she stands a good show of going to Kan Quentln. David Patton, chief of the new crowd of hoodlums, was sent to the county jail to-day. Wm. Dunn, under indictment for robbery, was sentenced to 200 days in the county jail for an assault on Offi cer Crook a month since. The Belcher Company declared a dividend of $5 per share to-day, amounting to !57>°.0,000, payable on the 10th Inst.

Ah Chung, a Chinese merchant, was arrested to-night for attempting to kidnap a Chinese woman on Spofford alley this morning. He claims she owed him a hundred dollars and he was only attempting to collect it. A Chinaman was brought to the station house this evening by several of his countrymen. He has a serious knife wound in the head which he says was Inflicted by another China man. Detectives have the clue and expect to have the assailant to-night. The habeas corpus case of Capt. Kinsey and wife and three others, ac cused of the murder of Harvey Green, at Pescadero, occupies the attention of Fourth District Court this evening, and will not be concluded to-night. The two witnesses for the prosecution who were expected to testify that Kin sey laid the plot, pdjd the money and gave weapons to the other defendants to kill the Greens, flatly contradicted each other. Ono man named Warner testified to that effect; the other, Brad shear contradicting him. The China is overdue from Dec. 23, instead of Jan 1. Five or six Chinamen entered a house ou Spoflbrd alley occupied by Chinese women and threw a quantity of redpepper on their faces, blinding and stilling them, and then robbed them of all their money.
