COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
SATURDAY MARCH 28, 1874. Our Object. The Los Angeles Herald Ims fully passed into the hands of the new joint stock publishing company. The Board of Directors, Judge Thompson (President), I. W. Lord (Secretary), J. W. Potts, P. Beaudry, F. P. F. Temple, F. G. Gary and If. J. Bixley, in tend to spare no pains to make the paper first-class. That* gentlemen are known to the citizens of the county as energetic business men. They know what kind of a paper is needed, and will spare no pains to accomplish their object. We believe that the field is large enough to support several good pipers, and we will extend a helping hand to our contempo raries and help to build them up; not that they need our help to in sure their success, but co-operation adds strength and certainty to the success of all parties. If as a journal we cannot furnish valuable information to our readers and make the paper worth what they pay for it, we do not expect to retain our subscribers. Neither shall we attempt to ruin other journals by put ting them down. It is one object of the company to furnish information to people in other parts of the country relating to the re sources and commercial prospects of our county. We want farmers, pro ducers of every class, men of capital and energy, who will take hold of our undeveloped resources and by organ ized action make this the garden of the world. By filling our columns with information about the character of our soil, its products, the profit of cultivating, the wonderfully rapid growth of vegetation, our cheap lands, our manufacturing resources, our commercial situation and the inex haustible mineral regions adjacent to this place and forever tributary to us, we expect to induce many to come here and settle. Ou the other hand we will try and furnisli our local readers with all val uable information from abroad, which will enable them to most successfully carry on their local enterprises. New systems of agriculture, new crops, and such other matters as will be of practical use to the farmer will be inserted for his benefit. Matter relating to the commercial portion of the community and enab ling them to take advantage of any change in the market, or of any new material in the market, will find its place in our columns. The field here stretched out is large enough to occupy all of our space, therefore we will not spend time in abusing private or public persons or enterprises. Neither shall we hesi tate to promptly inform the public of any scheme designed to injure or op press. No organization or party need ex pect any favor except so far as it pro motes the general welfare, in which case the Herald will earnestly co operate. The interest of each locality is best promoted by a healthy growth of all the others. We shall therefore strike no blow at any part of the county or any sectional interest, but will labor for the growth and prosperity of each part. This is a large programme and covers a wide field. Do you think you can carry it out ? Well, may be not; but we will try. As we said before there is room for several good journals, and we expect to do our part to the best of our ability. When we have exhausted the above subjects, then, and not till then, will we devote our time and space to less important matter. To put the matter in a few words, the Publishing Company propose to run the Herald in the interest of Los Angeles county and not in the in terest of any party, order, or indi vidual. The "Blue Cum" vs. Willow and Fever. Statements have at various times been published with regard to the pe culiar power of the Australian blue gum tree in controlling and even de stroying the miasmatic poisons of the low lands of hot climates. The following extract taken from the Medical Times and Gazette seems to show that such virtue is really pos sessed by the tree. The instances quoted would seem to be conclusive upon the point. Now for the practical application. The low lands of the Los Angeles, Kan Gabriel and Santa Ana rivers are in many places fenced in with live fences of the willow and other trees. Ry these fences the free sweep of the ocean winds is broken; the air be comes heavy and stagnant; miasmatic exhalations remain undisturbed; and —the result is fever. Why not plant these fence rows with the blue gum instead of the willow ? The same soil the same care needed for the one will grow the other. Why not cultivate, health in the fence rows instead of disease. In addition to its disease destroying qualities the blue gum furnishes a timber of great value, and is an ex ceedingly rapid grower, while the wood of the willow, except as an in ferior class of fuel, is worthless. Look ing at the question in a purely monied light, apart from any consideration of health, the substitution of the blue gum for the willow certainly is much to be desired. Tlie following is the article from the Medical Times and G izetic to which we have alluded: M. Oimbert, who has been long en gaged in collecting evidence concern ing the Australian tree Eucalyptus globulus, the growth of which is sur prisingly rapid, attaining besides gigantic dimensions, has addressed an interesting communication to the Academy of Sciences. This plant, it now appears, poetesses an extraordi nary power of destroying miasmatic influence in fever-stricken districts. It hits the singular property of absorb ing ten times its weight in water from the soil, and of emitting antiseptic oamphorous ellluvia. When sown in marshy ground it will dry it up in a very short time. Tho English were the first to try it at the Cape, ami within two or three years they com pletely changed the climatic condition of the unhealthy parts of the colony. A few years later its plantation was undertaken on a large scale in various parts of Algeria. At Pardock, twenty miles from Algeirs, a farm situated on the banks of the Hamyze was noted for its extremely pestilential air. in the Spring of 1867 about 18,000 of the euca lyptus were planted there. In July of the same year —the time when the fever season used to set in—not a single case occurred; yet the trees were not more than nine feet high. Since then complete immunity from fever has been maintained. In the neighbor hood of Constantino the farm of Ben Machydlin was equally in bad repute. It was covered witli marshes both in Winter and Summer. In live years the whole ground was dried up by 14,000 of these trees, and farmers and children enjoy excellent health. At the factory of the One de Constantino, in three years a plantation of eucalyp tus has "transformed twelve acres of marshy soil into a magnificent park, Whence fever has completely disap peared. In the island of Cuba this and all other paludal diseases are fast dis appearing from the unhealthy districts where this tree has been introduced. A station-house at one of the ends of a railway-viaduct in the Department of the Var was so pestilential that the officials could not be kept there longer than a year. Forty of these trees were planted, and it is now as healthy as any other place on the line. We have no information as to whether this beneficent tree wili grow in otherthan hot climates. We hope that experi ments will be made to determine this point. It would be a good thing to introduce it on the West Coast of Africa. Fine Crops-Good Prospects. We learn from Mr. Strunk, who owns a nice farm about six miles west of the city on the Rancho Cienega, that the crops are looking better than at any time for several years past. Over 1,200 acres of barley, wheat and oats have been planted and is making a fine growth; will mature and give full crops without any more rain. The wild grass is over a foot high and on the bottom lands would cut at least a ton of hay per acre. His land was ploughed from eight to ten inches deep, and he believes in deep plough ing for heavy land. Mr. McFadden, our pleasant ex- Buperintendent of Public Schools of the county, brings glowing accounts from the south part of the county. Wild grass and clover cover hill and valley with a growth of luxuriant richness about two and a half feet high. The Grass Valley Union says there has been much suffering in Perm Val ley endured by the cattle Many of the ranchers there have lost heavily because their supplies of hay ran out before the grass came on. How do you like the contrast? To resume our account: There is over thirty per cent more grain sown this year than any former year, and it looks fully one hundred per cent bet ter. Barley and rye over four feet high, and the late sown grain growing equally well but not so high. Many are planting corn, expecting to raise a crop without irrigation. liichland is settling up very fast. The Chapman land, among the best in the county, is passing into the hands of the farmer; soon the last acre will be sold. The farmers generally are planting more vines and trees than heretofore. In fact the farmers came here poor and have been paying for their land. Now getting out ef debt they are making permanent improve ments. Mr. McFadden has a vineyard of six acres, some four years old, which has never been irrigated. It is as vigor ous in its growtli and yield as any irri gated vineyard, and it is one hundred feet to surface water where the vine yard is growing! How does that coin cide with your "old resident's" theory that nothing will grow without irriga tion? A few miles east of Richland Rev. Mr. Leihy has a fine growth of orange trees on land where it is thirty feet to water, and that without irriga tion. Such lands as are referred to above can be bought of the owners of large tracts at from $13 to $30 per acre. We commend the foregoing to such persons as are mentioned in the fol lowing: Charles Piatt, well known in Cali fornia in connection with the show business, is now at Grand Rapids, Michigan, and writes from that place under date of March 15th to Cole, pro prietor of the Yosemite House, stating that he has abandoned the itinerent show business and opened an office for the sale of California lands, as well as to give information to those wishing to settle in this State. He states that he has for sale ten thousand acres of land in Fresno county, and that a col ony is partly formed with a view of settling in San Joaquin Valley. In the short time—only about a week— he has resided at Grand Rapids, he says that he has been literally run down by applicants who are desirous of coming to California. The first band of emigrants will number about twenty-five families, whom he advises to make Stockton their business head ijuarters. Piatt states that all there now proposing to take up their abode in California are people of the best class.—[Stockton independent, March 24th. The best life insurance policy that a farmer can secure for his children is a well improved farm with a good prac tical education and industrious, moral habits. Come to Los Angelos. The following letter explains itself: San Francisco, March 17, 1874. To the Editor of the Santa Barbara Press: DEAB Sir: lam making strong ef forts to start an Italian agriculturist colony, beginning with one hundred or two hundred families, in the south ern part of the State, because the cli mate there is more similar to that of my native sunny Italy than here, and the produce of the soil more precious. I have so far experienced great diffi culty in finding a suitable piece of land (from five thousand to twenty thousand acres) for the purpose. Can you, please, indicate to me any great land owner in your county th/tt would be M illing to aid me In the enterprise for the itid of the State? Please pardon me the liberty I have taken. Very respectfully yours, C. Dandero, Editor La Voge del PopolO. Our Chamber of Commerce would do well to send to the writer a state ment of facts relating to this county, and make an effort to secure the col ony. The land can be had here in the above quantity, and as to quality can not be surpassed. We send him a copy of this paper and call his attention to the items relating to this county. By all means come here and see our soil, our climate, our resources; devel oped and undeveloped. Your "native sunny Italy" by gift of nature is in ferior to Los Angeles. The once com mercial greatness of Italy will be out done by the future commerce of this place. The labor of your hardy emi grants will receive a richer return here than ever was yielded by the soil of Italy. Our balmy air, blue sky and sunny days will drive homesickness far away. NEW TO-DAY.

Let there he water and every thing in the vegetable line springs up and grows with a growth unparalleled in other lo calities. Orange trees spring up with marvel lous rapidity, and the spot becomes a little paradise under the manipulation of Industry, wherever water can be hail. The hill lands have been delayed In their sale limply because the arrangements for water were Insufficient, The time given for their sale has consequently been extended for two months. A large reservoir capable of containing untold hundreds of thousands of gallons of water li now being constructad. An engine and pump is now on Us way hither. Which will raise SO,OOO gallons of water per hour into the reservoir, more than is now consumed by the entire city of Los Angeles. All lots must be sold previous to April 12th, for upon that date those that are left will be disposed of at public auction, by the popular auctioneer, Noyet. They will be sold on the Installment plan, at his rooms In the Temple Block on Spring street; the firs! Installment payable on the day of sale. Fill ecu thousand feel of pipe are now being laid in the streets, 8,000 feet of which are al ready iv the ground, and a million-gallon res ervoir is now being made to supply (he lota wilh water. The City Surveyor has been ordered to de fine the grades and lines of Olive, Charity and Hunker Hill avenues, from Hill to Hope; Second street and Temple street from Hill to Rope. This will bring these lands within easy reach of»tht business part of the city. The distance to the Court-house is less than it is to the Turner's Hall. Mr. Beaudry being the owner by perfeel and indisputable title, oilers the following scheme believing that it supplies a felt want, His various tracts have been surveyed, and plotted in lots of convenient size for resi dences, upwards oftfco hundred in number, and the maps, together with abstracts of title, are kept for public inspection at his office, op posite the Pico House. Any person desiring to purchase can inspect the land, select his lot or lots, and acquire the same, if not previously taken up by another, upon the following terms, purchasers not be ing restricted to a single lot : The purchaser or his successor to pay the fixed prtOS Of the land selected by him in equal monthly Instslaments, as follows: On lots valued at $100 and upwards, but not to exceed $suo, $15 per month; on those rained at|3Do and lesstnan $400, $10 per month. Payments in gold or currency and no interest demanded. For cash In hand, a reduction of fifteen per cent will be made. The purchaser to have immediate possession upon payment of the first installment ami on execution and delivery of contract. The right of the purchasers may be assign able to him, and his assigns to succeed to all his privileges and liabilities; standing in all respects towards the vendor as an original obligor. Purchasers shall not be restricted to the pay ment of the installments as above shown, but may make payments in advance, and on such payments he will allow one per cent per month, from the date of payment until said payment would become due. Upon selection of a lot or lots by a purchaser and payment of the first installment with $5 in U. S. gold coin, as expenses on the docu ment, Mr. Beaudry, with the purchaser, will execute and acknowledge a sealed agreement embodying the above conditions; and, Upon full payment,according thereto, the under signed will execute and deliver to the pur chaser, or his lawful represent itives, on de mand, a good and sufficient and absolute deed of conveyance of the abstracted lands, in form of warranty against grantor, the grantee pay ing the cost of such deed. The location is very desirable. All that has heretofore been lacking is water, and that want is now filled. Anywhere else, iv as de sirable location, lots readily command from $500 to $1,000, and even higher rates. This property is put at the astonishing low price of from $:ii>o to $400. But this Is not all. This may be paid iv currency and a reduction of fifteen pePeeiit will be made for cash in hand. STRUGGLE FOR LIFE !
