COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
TUESDAY MARCH 31, 1874. CITY AUTO SUBURBS. The Senator sails to-morrow at 10 A. m. for San Francisco. Twelve new subscribers for the DArLY Herald yesterday. The Templeton Star Alliance will appear at Merced Theater next Thurs day. The County Court is again in session. Judge O'Mefveny has recovered from his sickness. Truxtou will be the name of the new town at the end of the Shoo-Fly road, near Santa Monico. The Constable auctioned off a lot of household goods yesterday, and created quite a sensation on Temple street. There will be printed an extra num ber of to-day's paper to accommodate persons desiring to send copies abroad. A little rubbish got on fire at the Clarendon Hotel a few nights ago, but the Are was put out before any dam age was done. The chaingang was at work yester day clearing our plaza of its over growth of weeds. Well done, good and faithful servants. The Spring and Sixth Street Rail way Company has levied an assess ment of ten dollars per share on its stock, payable immediately to the Treasurer, Mr. Temple. There will be a series of protracted meetings at the M. E. Church during this week and all are cordially invited to attend them. The services will commence every evening at 7:30. The "Important" still lives. For proof of the fact, see our advertising columns. Such thoroughly live men as are the proprietors of this well known establishment should be well patronized by the public. Our business streets are becoming very dusty lately; so much so as to cause considerable extra trouble to our merchants. It would be a very good idea to start the water cart out soon and thus obviate the trouble. As may be seen by reference to our advertising columns, persons wishing any ploughing done in their lots iv this city, cau have it done at very reasonable rates by J. M. Hawley. Orders can be left at No. 53, corner of Third and Fort streets. There was only a light sprinkle of rain ou Sunday last in this city, but farther out towards the mountains the rain fell in considerable quantities. As we have already had enough water for this season, we are perfectly willing to be slighted in this way. The ladies of tbjs city will hold an other temperance meeting to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock in Good Tem plar's Hall, when a time will be set for a general prayer meeting. A full attendance is requested, as it is de sired to have as much working force as possible. The demand for the last two issues of the Herald has been so great that all of our extra copies were sold out, and we to-day sent out and procured all the copies we could find among our subscribers. We would like to have twenty-five copies more returned to meet the demand. We are informed by Mr. Armstrong that the cantata of the !' Flower Queen," projected for the benefit of the M. E. Sunday School, has not been given up but only postponed for a short time. Business calls Mr. Arm strong from the city for a few weeks, iv consequence of which the entertain ment is delayed. Dr. Lucky wishes us to state that the teacher of the various schools in the city do not wish scholars to go to school before 8:30 in the morning, and that parents will do much to keep their children, off the streets and out of mischief, besides conferring a great favor on the teachers, if they will not let them start to school before that time. Great preparations are being made to insure the success of the Grangers' ball to-morrow night, and no doubt it will be a very fine affair. No pains have been spared to make it the most enjoyable affair of the season, so of course they will have a great number of persons present. The tickets are sold at very reasonable rates, only one dollar, so tnat all can afford to go and have a good time. A subscriber of the Herald told us yesterday that he first saw a copy of our paper in the library of the Young Men's Christian Association at New ark, New Jersey, where it had been sent by the Chamber of Commerce, and that many were inquiring for our fapers while they were sent. Who nows how many persons have come to our city from reading copies of the various papers which the Chamber of Commerce sent East? We have received from A. S. Addis a large number of stereoscopics of J)laces in Inyo county and of Ana leim. They are very well executed and the objects selected with good judgment. This is one of the best means of correctly informing the resi dents of other localities " how we look." If you want to send a portrait present to any of your Eastern friends just step into Mr. Addis' rooms and order a set of stereoscopic views. A rich treat is offered to the people of this community to-night in the per formance to be given by the celebrated Excelsior minstrel troupe. This com pany have obtained considerable celebrity in the comic line, and if we can judge by the programme, they will sustain their reputation here. They don't bore the audience with stale, prosy, old-fashioned love tunes, but just keep them in a roar with gen uine, side-splitting nigger tunes and dances. The Templeton "Star Alliance" will perform here for three nights this week, beginning on Thursday night, and offer a splendid programme for each evening. They have met with great success on their tour through this country, but can only spare time to stay here three evenings, as they have other engagements which call them away. As they will remain but a short time, of course they will have very full houses. For full particulars, see their advertisement in another column. Mr. Wolfensteln, the energetic pho tographer, has taken a large negative of the city map of Los Angeles, em bracing Ord's survey of 1849,Hancock's survey of City Donation lots, Gift's survey, and all the surveys of thirty five acre lots east of the Los Angeles river. These different surveys are all brought together in one map, thus giving a perfect map of the city. Every property owner should have one in his possession and the hotels should each nave one neatly framed. For sale at W. J. Broderick's. There will be an advisory meeting of stockholders of the Orange Co-opera tive Company to-day at 1 o'clock i\ If., at Good Templar Hall in connection with a meeting of the Board of Direc tors of that Company. A full attend ance of all who have subscribed to the stock of the company is desirable. Delos Campbell, a well known livery stable keeper of this city, was kicked by one of his horses on Saturday last. The gentleman is now able to be out on the streets again, but he still suf fers considerably from the effects of bis injuries. His many friends iv this city will be very sorry to hear of his mishap, but glad to know that it is not so bad as was at first supposed. Henry M. Bailey, wiio has lately purchased a place on Alameda street some three and a half miles from the center of town, has just planted out an acre of ramie cuttings. He expects that the cuttings will be ready for transplanting in about six months. He says that when transplanted they will cover an area of about ten acres. This, wo believe, is the first experi ment of the kind ever yet tried in this county. No doubt it will be a success. Mr. Bailey has also eighteen acres of barley which will be ready for cutting in about a week hence, this b«ing the earliest crop of the season. He will soon plant a lot cf the "peerless" po tatoes, which have just come into the market from New York and have never before been cultivated here. Last night as Fritz Henz, the well known proprietor of the New York brewery, was taking it easy with his pipe and lager, he spied smoke and tire issuing from the chimney of a neighboring house; so laying aside his loved meerschaum and mug, he called together his brave fellow-brewers and went to the flre.bearlng his ladder all ready for use. Fritz placed the ladder against the side of the house and boldly mounted to the roof, closely fol lowed by his companions. While they were having a long talk as to what had tetter be done to save the house, the chimney got through burn ing and the house was saved. So Fritz, feeling that he had done his duty, climbed down to the ground and packed his ladder home with him. Some time afterwards Fritz walked out into his yard to get a look at the scene of his late victory, but was greatly surprised at seeing several men still on the roof of the house. "Why don't those fellows come down?" thought Fritz to himself. Just then a stranger came up and asked, "Have you got a ladder around here? Those men on top of that house have none to come down by." The thought sud denly struck Fritz why those fellows did not come down. Fritz don't like to talk much about that fire now, but he treated the boys on the strength of it last night. Mr. Plercy's Farewell. The farewell testimonial tendered to Samuel W. Piercy drew a very good house to Turn Verein Hall last night, and the entertainment was well re ceived throughout. "Owing to a com bination of circumstances," as Mr. Piercy stated it, the scene from Romeo and Juliet had to be left o?.t of the programme, but was made up for by the recitation of "The Blue and the the Gray," "Sheridan's Ride," and "Schneider's Ride." Mr. Piercy is too well known by the citizens of Los Angeles to require any comments in his favor from us. It la simply neces sary to say that his part of the enter tainment was well sustained and well appreciated. The vocal solo by F. Guinette and the instrumental duete by Messrs. Arelavo. and Meyer were worthy of mention. Mr. Matthews in his Dutch songs most emphatically "beat the Dutch," and was the recipi ent of encores loud and long. Tpon the whole the affair was a most pleas ant good-bye to Mr. Piercy. Around the County. Prof. C. L. Lewis from Los Nietos reports the crops very good. Much of the barley is out in head. The late sown grain is making a fine growth. The farmers are preparing for their corn crop. The area sown this year in small grain is much larger than in previous years. No damage was done by the heavy rains except to displace the bridge across New river. The col lege building is now on its new foun dations and will soon be prepared for the use of the students. The L O. O. F. and Order of Masons are building a fine two-story brick hall. Some $3,000 already subscribed. The Professor is succeeding finely with his singing schools at Los Nietos and Compton. t W. H. Whit worth, living near Bal lona ranch, reports fine crops; some 2,000 acres of grain, mostly barley; probably 200 acres of wheat. Much of the grain is heading out. Crop far better than last year. Some com al ready planted. Farmers in his neigh borhood anxiously awaiting Shoo Fly railroad, which is now being surveyed. The deep ploughed land will yield at least five sacks per acre more than the shallow ploughed. Mr. West, near Cohuenga Pass, says the early barley is five feet high and heading out. The rye is full six feet high and In head. The crops will from present appearances be at least fifty per cent heavier than last year. Spadra, thirty-five miles east of Los Angeles. The railroad forces are at work completing the depot, near Ru bottom's house. The water-tank also is completed, and from present appear ances the railroad company will soon make this the connecting point for transfer of San Bernardino passen gers. The crops were never looking better and never gave a finer promise of an abundant harvest. Large areas of grain have been sown. Many arc now preparing to plant corn. This is one of the finest parts of the county for apiary. The valley is about three miles wide by say twenty miles long. Ou all sides it is surrounded by hills covered with the finest honey-bearing flowers and grapes. North of the val ley, say eight miles, is tho Sierra Madra range of mountains, to which the bees resort and find material for what is known as mountain honey— the finest in the world. The comple tion of the railroad to this point gives new life to it; already the land sells at an advanced price, and new-comers are securing homes. In a short time regular trains will run for passengers and freight. Col. E. J. C. Kewen brings good tld ings from Mission San Gabriel. Sun day the rain camo down in refreshing showers from 2tosp. St The ground was. wet down to the moisture of the last rains, making the soil in fine con dition for plowing. The Colonel's wheat fields are iv fine condition; no signs of rust. The heads are seven inches long and very plump and full. The wheat is of the Sonora variety. Many estimate that the wheat will yield seventy-five bushels per acre. The barley is heading out and is about three feet high; will yield probably thiity bushels per acre. Orange, lemon, lime and almond trees are in full bloom. The other fruit trees are putting forth their flower buds and bid fair to produce more than at any former year. Florence, seven miles south. Mr. Farris reports that the grain crop around Florence is unsurpassed in its promise for an abundant yield. The plains are covered with clover, grass and weeds two feet high. Early crops are so far along that they will mature without any more rain. St. Vincent College, of Santa Bar bara which was burned on the 10th of this month is to be rebuilt. We clip the following from the Press of the 28th : " The Sisters of Charity tender their sincere and grateful thauks to the citi zens of Santa Barbara generally for the interest manifested and services rendered during the late lire. They regret the necessity which obliges them to appeal again for aid. and have now opened a subscription list for the reconstruction of their building. Yes terday they commenced their sad mis sion and are grateful for the sympathy and k'ndness with which they were re ceived." Appended to this is a list of subscriptions amounting to $1,631. Doubtless the necessary amount will soon be raised and the college again reared from its ashes. AMUSEMENTS. MERCED THEATER. Great Fashionable Attraction ! Gala Performance Renewed Three Nights Only!
