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

tend from Main through to Charity

with no fear of frost. Street cars will
soon be running in front of the tract,
the vineyard is in full bearing, ami

the orange trees are laden with tine

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

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
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
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.

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

Treasury by an amendment to the
law regarding such balances.
