COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. TUESDAY MARCH 31, 1874. A New and Important Feature in the Development of Wilmington Harbor. It has been heretofore supposed that the bed of our harbor at Wilmington was a deep soft mud, and that in the future improvement of the ship chan nel an expensive system of sea-walls would be needed to prevent this soft mud from settling down and refilling channels and docks when they had been cleared. The prosecution of the work of the new wharf company has thrown an unexpected light upon the subject, and shown that instead of mud, the bed of the harbor is a Arm clay that will neither wash nor settle. The slope of tins stratum of clay is from the land out toward the sea. This explains the fact that the ship channel lies, through almost its entire length, upon the outer side of the har bor, hugging the shore of Rattlesnake Island. At first sight this position of the main ship channel along the outer edge of the harbor, with broad flats of a stiff clay, almost entirely bare at low tide, separating the channel from the main land, would seem a serious bar to the improvement of the harbor, ne cessitating the construction of long wharves to gain at the end of each wharf only a limited accommodation for ships. Here comes in, however, the new feature of which we have spoken. It is found that branching off from the main ship channel, like the branching arms of a river, are a num ber of side channels almost like the worn beds of old water courses. There are probably a dozen of these arms be tween the present railroad wharf and the bluffs below, each arm or slough reaching from the navigable channel almost or entirely back to the main land. The long continued action of the tide has gradually filled these an cient channels with a soft mud, al most as liquid as water, leaving the firm banks of clay standing like sea walls on either side so that when once the soft mud is cleared out no pile work or walling will be needed to preserve the shape of each channel. The new wharf company cross with their work the first and shoalest of these side channels 450 feet back from the main channel. Mr. Jones, superintendent of the company, says that an iron rod sank with its own weight seven feet through the mud. These sloughs be low the first gradually increase in width depth and length, some ex tending back a distance from the ship channel of 1,200 and 1,500 feet with a width of several hundred feet and a depth of fifteen to twenty feet at low tide. The wharf company make use of two or three sloughs besides a frontage upon the main ship channel between the mouths of the two sloughs of several hundred feet. 'The first slough, which they are now crossing, will give a basin 450 feet in length, with width for several vessels to lie. The second slough has a length of more than 1,000 feet with width at the commencement of 300 or 400 feet and depth of the soft mud of about fifteen feet at low tide. The company can make available at a limited expense a water frontage of probably 2,000 feet. Nature has already provided in these series of sloughs the outline of an ex tensive system of docks that will double the original frontage. Here, too, a plan at once suggests itself for the rapid and cheap and at the same time permanent improvement of these docks. These flats, as before stated, clear out to the main ship channel are simply a stiff, firm clay, solid almost as cement, cut at right angles at inter vals of a few hundred yards by sloughs of soft mud that reach from the navi gable channel back almost to the high ground. Instead of building a road way of earth down the side of the sloughs run a double line of piles (fence posts would almost answer) such distance apart as may be desired for the width of the roadway. No fear of the teredo destroying them as the clay in which they stand is bare at low tide. Then plank up the sides to the level of high tide. Here are simply a couple of strong board fences 40 or 50 feet apart. Now set the dredging ma chines at work, letting it dump the soft mud of the slough over the fence into the enclosed area. Two ends are accomplished; the road-way is built at less cost than if the dirt has to be hauled, and the slough is dredged for ships at about one-half the ordinary cost of dredging, as the mud does not have to be re-han dled, and no steam tug is needed to tug lighters. Yet after the roadways are filled there will still remain considerable mud in the channel, and it is desirable to prevent any further deposit of mud by the slow action of the tide. Stop a moment and notice ! The building of the roadways for each slough has left between it and the slough next be hind, or back of it, a tidal basin of from 20 to 50 acres. This basin must empty or fill through its frontage, still open, upon the main ship channel. Yet this frontage ia the most valuable of all, because of the greater depth of water before it. Now extend the earthen roadway from the point where it had reached the channel, back along the edge of the channel toward the terminus of the roadway to the slough just above it, leaving only passage sufficient unclosed for tbe filling and emptying of the basin. Across this space run (only a modification of the plan presented to the Chamber of Commerce several months ago) a line of floodgates open MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY. Map showing the geographical and commercial position of Los Angeles; the system of Trans- Continental Railroads on the Pa cific Coast; the impassable ranges of mountains parallel to the coast north and south of San Gorgonio Pass—the only natural pass in the mountains from Lower California to Oregon; showing also the largest and richest mining region in the world tributary to Los Angeles; showing the proposed railroads to the rich mines of Cerro Gordo, to Salt Lake; also the thirty fifth and thirty-second parallel routes and their junction at Al burquerque, as proposed by Coll Scott. ing only with the out-going tide. Rack at the head of the slough, which has been walled in by the roadways, run another line of floodgates sufficiently extensive to fill the tide-basin. Do not fill the roadway here with earth, but simply bridge the space necessary for the gates like an ordinary wharf. Let this second series of floodgates open only with the in-coming tide. The basin can now only fill by the current rushing up the length of the slough, carrying with it the soft mud of the slough. The water then spreads out over the small basin, depositing, as it gains a state of rest, the mud held in suspension. When the tide turns, the gates back into the slough close and the water empties itself gently through the floodgates which open upon the main channel. In this way the slough will rapidly be swept out and then kept clean for all time with no further expense for dredging. The mud, too, will be left upon the flats where it can do no harm, instead of silting back into the main ship chan nel to shoal depth and create bars. The description of the work seems compli cated and elaborate—the work itswlf is simple and inexpensive. The cost of one such wharf as that at Santa Bar bara or San Diego, with berth room for only two or three ships, woula here give room for twenty or thirty. Then the work is permanent, with almost no expense for repairs, instead of the costly structure of a wharf, needing to be renewed every few years. All of these facts prove still more completely the statement made repeatedly by en gineers—that they had never before seen a place where nature had done so much for the making of a first-class harbor. The Herald Map. We present our readers to-day with a map prepared at considerable cost showing the commercial position of Los Angeles. It also shows the south ern system of tran-scontinental rail roads on the Pacific coast. One rail road from Los Angeles north to Dela no, then dividing, one branch running over to the coast and up by Salinas valley to San Jose. There again di viding, one branch running to San Jose and one running to Oakland and thence to Stockton and Sacramento. Coming back to Delano the other branch runs down the San Joaquin to Sacramento or San Francisco. At Sac ramento tho roads form junction with the system of railroads of the entire north part of the State and across the continent. The proposed road to Cerro Gordo and Lone Pine is also indicated. A bill has just passed the Legisla ture incorporating the road. Ft is in the hands of wealthy men who will build it. The present amount of freight passing over this route at $SJ pur ton will it is estimated in five years time pay for the road—a narrow gauge. It will be seen that the 35th and 32d parallel roads must come through the San Gorgonio Pass. After entering the pass the road will reach the ocean at Wilmington. To terminate at Wil mington will save running 100 miles to the next nearest landing south of Wilmington. At some time in the future a railroad will be constructed from Los Angeles by way of San Gor gonia Pass to Salt Lake. Such a road will bring Salt Lake, by commercial distance, 400 miles nearer the ocean. An examination of the map shows the immense mineral region which must forever remain tributary to Los Angeles. This map shows the com mercial necessity of developing fully the capacity of the harbor at Wil mington. Look at the map. Study it well. See the insurmountable range of mountains north and south of San Gorgonio Pass, forcing all the rail roads to this place. Then dream of the future greatness of our grand valley—a dream that will be realized before some people wake from their slumber. One of the women of tbe future is supposed to be the Chicago girl who settled a row in a street car a short time since. A brace of roughs came in puffing clouds of tobacco smoke and wouldn't stop. A gentleman pulled the oigar stump from between one fellow's teeth, anu they went for him. Not far, however, for the girl we mean stopped one of the roughs with his pistol half out of his pocket, by putting a cocked revolver to his ear and quietly stating that it would be unpleasant for him to make any disturbance. The two agreed very promptly and there was no row in that 'bus—or roughs either. How to Build Cheap Dams. As the season for irrigation ap proaches the question of constructing cheap dams to turn the water of tho rivers into the irrigating ditches arises. We propose the following as the cheap est and most effectual dam that can be constructed for rivers with sandy beds: Construct boxes out of rough redwood say two feet high and two feet wide by ten feet long. Each box will cost about $2 75. Construct enough of these boxes to reach across the stream. Put the box lengthwise across the stream, fill it with sand and nail on the lid; place the next box end to this one, fill with sand and nail on the lid; so on across the stream. Each of these boxes will be as firm and as heavy as a solid block of stone 2x2x10 feet. Imagine a dam of solid stone blocks across the stream and you will have some idea of the strength of a dam made of sand boxes. The boxes may be made of any size or shape, as may be required by the stream. Boxes 2x2x4 feet or six feet in length may be used for a lower row placed parallel to the current. On top of this row may be set a row of boxes 2x2x10 feet lengthwise across the stream. This will give a dam four feet high, width of box four to six feet, width of top two feet. A dam of any dimensions may thus be constructed. The cost per foot of a dam two feet high by two feet wide will be about 27 cents. When the ir rigating season is over take the lids off the boxes, empty out the sand and pile up the boxes on the shore. They will be ready for use the next season, and will last with care at least five years. The cost per foot per year will therefore be about six cents. The San Antonio Creek Scheme. A Washington dispatch of March 25th says: Colonel Alexander, before the House Committee yesterday, said the proposed San Antonio Harbor would be to San Francisco what the Brooklyn Atlantic Docks are to New York. Conger, an able and influential committeeman, replied: "But Con gress was never asked to construct tho Atlantic Docks." Sawyer concurred that it would be unwise to inaugurate a federal system of making harbors other than tor refuge. In response to inquiries, Alexander admitted that there are various points on the bay where a railroad can reach deep water without expending millions for mak ing a harbor, but they are thirty miles from San Francisco. Conger—"That's immaterial. The railroad won't reach the city in cither case, and for shipment to Europe what difference does it make?" Alexander did not seem to think the railroad wharves insecure, except from the danger of cars running off the track. The toredo is not bad on the east side ot the hay. In response to Luttrell, Alexander said: "Northern California could ship wheat better from Vallejo or Martinez than at Oak laud; while the south would be better served at San Francisco." jjSawyer suggested that the San An tonio scheme would he tor the benefit of the railroad. Alexander assented. Conger asked why Antloob would not serve the middle portion of this State, Vallejo the northern and San Francisco the southern? Higby esti mated that one third of the State would be better served at Oakland. Conger, Luttrell and Clayton showed that a very small area was necessarily dependent on Oakland as a shipping point. The remainder could use the rivers and bay. Luttrell wanted all the main rivers improved before aid ing San Antonio real estate specula tors. The scheme is dead for the pres ent session. The Board of Trustees of Santa Bar bara are considering the proposition of one P. Murray to farm out their plazas at an annual rental of $30. Economy is wealth. A patent iron coffin dealer advert! sol that those who have used his invention will use no other. NEW TO-DAY. GOODALL, NELSON &, PERKINS' STEAMSHIP LINES.

W*ter Is the all important question In South ern California. Let there be water ami 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 heeonics a little paradise ÜBder the manipulation of industry, wherever water can lie had. The hill lands have been delayed In their sale simply because the arrangement! 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 waterls now being constructed. An engine and pump is now on Its way hither, which will raise 80/100 gallons of water per hour into the reservoir, more than Is now consumed ly the entire city of Los Angeles. All lots mast be sold previous to April Bth, for upon that date those that are left will be disposed of it public auction, by the popular auctioneer, Joyes. They will be sold on the installment plan, at his rooms in the Temple Block on Spring street; the first Installment payable on the day of sale. Fifteen thnisand (Bet of pipe are now being laid in the Ureets, 8,000 feet of which are al ready in theground, and a million-gallon res ervoir Is new being made to supply the lots witli water. The City Purveyor has been ordered to de fine the grades and lines of Olive, Charity and Bunker Hill avenues, from Hill to Hope; Second/Street and Temple street from inn to Hope. Till? will bring these lands within easy reach of the 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 perfect and indisputable title, otrers 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 ot two hundred in number, and the maps, together with abstracts of title, are kept for public inspection at his office, op posite the Pleo 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 ]iay the fixed price of the land selected by him in e<|iial monthly installments, as follows: On lots valued at $100 and upwards, but not toexeeed SooO, S»ls per month; on those valued at and less than $400, 510 per month. Payments in gold or currency ami 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 and 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 ad vancc, and on such payments he will allow one per cent per month, from tho 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 Jo 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 representatives, on de mand, a good and sufficient and absolute deed of conveyance ot 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 tilled. Anywhere else, in as de sirable location, lots readily command from $.")00 to $1,000, and even higher rates. This property is put at the astonishing low price of I'rom $:!00 tojiuo. But this Is not all. This may be paid in currency and a reduction of fifteen percent will be made for cash in hand. NEW TO-DAY. pacific mailjteamshiplo. Special Notice.
