One of the boys was thrown from the wagon and a wheel passed over his bead, seriously if not fatally injuring him. The quantity of wool which passed through Wilmington last year for ex port was about four million pounds, This year it is supposed that at least seven million pounds will be exported. This is the product of Los Angeles county alone, and does not include the wool used by our home manufacturers. The Wilmington Enterprise says that Charles Sweetzer, a fisherman at that place, recently caught some mam moth shrimps, the largest of which were over nine inches in length. These are nearly two inches longer than that in the Public Library, noticed in the He BALD some time since. There came near being a serious ac cident in front of the U. S. Hotel yes terday afternoon. Asa hired man was driving Mr. Brunson's carriage up Main street, with Mrs. Brunson seated within, a passing team came in colli sion with it, shattering the tongue of the carriage. The horses commenced kicking and prancing about in a lively manner, but were prevented from run ning away by the by-standers. Mrs. H, J.

An affray occurred between some boys in Sonora last Tuesday, in which one Guillermo Oropesa, a boy about fifteen years of age, drew a dirk and stabbed a companion in the shoulder, iniiieting quite a serious wound. Had the knife entered but an inch lower it would have penetrated vital parts and caused death. The name of the wounded boy isllario Lages. Yester day the boy's aunt, Sivalo Lugo, made complaint before Justice Gray against the young villain who perpetrated the deed and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. It Is reported by tho Express that between four and five hundred gallons of a very fine quality of illuminating oil has been secured from our new Re finery. The product is 33£ per cent, of the crude petroleum. In about thirty days machinery for boring will arrive on the ground, and two wells will be sunk. They are certain of going down 000 feet, and are prepared to go 1500. This will be the right kind of a test. There is one well now down 250 feet which is flowing very freely. Next month, three parties representing avery largo cupital, will arrive herefrom Pennsylvania to examine our oil resources. These men are all largely interested in the Pennsylvania oil region, and have bean advised, by competont persons who have examined our wells, that the show for oil here is greater than it ev»r was in Pennsylvania. The next • tin of the Refinery will bo on lubri ating oil, A TRIP TO TRUXTON. Kleh I,iui.l Tlrond *loM«-lt, nnllful I.anJscnpe—The Itnllronri TeritiliniH- Keep Water Mini Wharf Facilities— Snnl.v Deneii — The Drive to the Neustl.le House. Yesterday, in company with Mr. F. P, P. Temple, Professor Hobbf and n couple of ladies, tho editor of the HERALD paid a visit to Santa Monica, the water terminus of the Truxton and Los Angeles Railroad. The mode of conveyance was a four-in-hand ba rouche, driven by Reynolds, who han dles the ribbons with nil the grace of the elder Sam Wcllor, and is not afraid of "vidders." LEAVING THK CITY At 10 A. If., we went bowling along at a rapid gait, and a few moments after 12 o'clock alighted on the beach behind which the town—beg pardon—the city of TrtlXtOD is to stand. Along the road on our way down we saw the line of stakes which mark the survey of the railroad which will soon be built between this city and TrtlXtOD. In passing over the route, the traveler is struck with the superior quality of the soil which meets the eye from the moment of starting unto the very sands of the beach. LIKE THE ROAD TO WILMINGTON, The Truxton road will run through a rich body of land, extending back from either side of the track for miles. ft is not hazarding much to say that soon after this load iscompleted it will be lined from this city to the water by gardens and cottage homes. Over nearly the entire area the soil is now under cultivation, and there is no ap parent reason why orange groves and orchards should not be cultivated from Los Angeles to the ocean beach. THE RAILROAD May be built at the minimum cost. Prom this city toward the water the first tan miles will require little or no grading. Then comes a mile or so over which slight grading will be nec essary, and thence on to the water no cutting orsJilling is needed. At the blutf orbahk the road will pass along v ravine making into the sea. The bank from the level valley down to the surf-Washed beach is about twenty live feet. THE DAY, Which some one, fond of euphony, has nicknamed Shoo Ply, was yesterday calm as an inland lake. The surf rolled in over the sandy beach so gently that the ladies followed the retreating waves and retreated as they advanced, but out in deep water no swell was noticeable, and so far as our nautical judgment went a vessel would have encountered no ditliculty in receiving and discharging freight at a wharf, such as it is the purpose of the company to construct. The indenture or bay is HALF-MOON SHAPED, And extends from San Pedro Point on the southeast to the Malaga Point on the northwest. The distance from point to point is about twenty-live miles. The water at the point where the railroad will strike the bay, deep ens so rapidly that a wharf fourteen hundred feet in length will roach twenty-live foot of water at low tide. A few hundred feet farther the water is forty or fifty feet deep. THE BEACH Is of fine sand, free of shells, and slopes gradually. Santa Monica bay is one of the finest, if not the finest, bathing localities on the Pacific coast. That it will become a great place of public resort—a second Newport—is the opin ion of all who visit it. The large area of land recently purchased by the rail road company is a level surface some twenty-live feet above high tide, and will in a short time after it is subdi vided and sold in lots of a few acres be dotted with cottages for the accommo dation of the thousands who will make Truxton a place of Summer resort. A BIDE IN* THE SURF. After the party had spent a couple of hours in looking over the site of the new town, and in imagination built half a dozen Newports, we again took our seats in the barouche, and Mr. Reynolds turned his team down the beach toward the Seasick- House. The tide was coming in rapidly; still the broad sandy slope offered an excellent drive. At times the waves would al most reach the carriage bed, and send the spray over our party in small showers, but the man at the wheel, which means Reynolds holding the ribbons, Knew his business. He had been to sea in a barouche before, and when he saw an unusual roller coming he headed the craft inland, and iv place of a capsize we always got away with a shower of salt water. The voy age was about three miles long, and ended with our arrival at THK SEASIDE HOUSE, Owned and conducted by our old up country friend, Will Tell, and his es timable wife. Before reaching the house, however, it became necessary to cross the lake, which is a lagoon a mile or so long, and was a hundred yards or more wide and rapidly grow ing wider from the incoming tide. The case looked a little dubious, and if we had been running away with some old lord's darling we should have Commenced chanting Lord Lilian's Daughter, but a fellow never feels strong in the sen timental when riding with his own wife. The strategy of Reynolds over come the ditliculty without a wreck. He landed the party and dashed the team across before the quicksand had time to swallow up the horses. Then With a boat found on the opposite side he ferried his passengers over. Our friends Tell and wife did not happen to be at home, but as they had neg lected to lock the kitchen door we were soon going for the eatables with tho appetite of pirates. The owners of the house soon returned and catch ing us in the act rewarded the out rage by furnishing us with a good dinner soon prepared by Mrs. Tell, consisting of fresh fish, broiled duck, roast veal, plenty of vegetables, good coffee and excellent wine. A PLACE OF REST. Mr. Tell's sea side house is rapidly becoming a place of Summer resort for a largo number of families living in this oityand valley It is a quiet cosy place. The lagoon affords good boating, while the beach is the resort of bathers. There is also good fishing ground in the locality. The house is sufficiently large to afford accommo dations for a number of families, while judging from our experience, the table is all that could be desired. AFTER PINNER Reynolds pointed the animals toward the city. YYV passed over tho higher land by the splendid plfl :c of Mr. Bur nett and down again into the valley, reaching the Clarendon Hotel at hall past live o'clock. The trip was en joyed by all and afforded the writer at least if not the entire party an oppor tunity of gathering sundry items of value relative to the new railroad and the surrounding valley, for all of which we, in the name of the party, return thanks to that genial and obliging gentleman, Mr. F. P. F. Temple. LETTER FROM MEMPHIS. The " HeritlU" not -Received A l'lan lor tin Arlilicinl Harbor. Editor HERALD : During the past two months I have been getting my news from Los Angeles through the columns of your enterprising cotempo rary, the Santa Barbara Press, which some kind friend sends me occasion ally. This means that you have not been sending me tiie Herald, or it has been stolen in the mail. DID IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU, That constructing a magnificent artifi cial harbor on your coast was not a very great undertaking? "How great," you are ready to ask; aud "what do 1 know about it V" Suppose you begin at San Pedro point and push a stone em bankment out into the sea, curving to the left so as to enclose the deep water in front of the old San Pedro landing. Suppose you begin another at Dead Man's Island, and push it out into the sea, curving it to the right so as to en close the deep water in front of the space between San Pedro Landing and Timms' [Is Aw-goost alive?]; ami suppose you make the first wing a mile long, and the second half that. You would have it harbor large enough to hold a hundred ships—how many more I won't say. What would this cost? Average the depth of water at three fathoms, and build your embank ment six feet above the water, and we would have the depth of the break water equal to twenty-four feet, or eight yards. MAKE ITS WIDTH ON TOP Equal to its depth, and let the slope in side and out be one for one, or an angle of forty-live degrees. Then each run ning Yard of the embankment would be equal to one-hundred and twenty eight cubic yards. .Multiply this by the length of the two wings, viz.: 2,000 yards, and you will find that the whole structure will hold 837,920 cubic yards ot stone rubble] which at one dollar per yard —an outside price—would give you a harbor at less cost than you can construct twenty miles of railroad! Possibly such a breakwater might not stand against continuous fierce gales; but there can be no reason why it would not answer at a point where a wharf is safe. If a wharf at Truxton will be safe, then it will be equally safe to make a harbor. A harbor would add an Immense prestige which you do not now possess. Freights would be cheaper than at present, and direct trade with far off countries could be more readily established. If you expect to smelt great quantities of ores you must have coal, and coal must come from abroad, and come directly and cheaply, it will not bear lighter age and handling. George W. Gift. Memphis, Term., .May 9, io?4. TRAGEDY NEAR SAN DIEGO. Armuiiy Martlareri—ladifttta tuc sm> pilic 1 "i ii nlt'lera. The San Diego L r /oon of yesterday has a long account of tho discovery by Mr. Chapin of the family of John Overend, murdered in their home, at La Jolla, three miles from Ban Die guito and twenty-six miles from San Diego, Mr. Chapin was passing the Overend place Monday forenoon,when he noticed that nothing was stirring about the premises, which appeared to be deserted. He approached the house and saw lying near, the dead body of John Overend. The head was horri bly mangled and bloody. Entering the house he encountered a stench so horrible that he was obliged to rush to the door, nearly fainting. He once more entered, and found the corpses of Mrs. Overend and two ofthe children. One of the little ones was covered with a cloth, Which be raised and found the face In an advanced state of decompo sition, The dreadful afttuvia gave evi dence that the people hud been mur dered several days. Mr. Chapin did not search for tbe other two children, (there were four ill the family) but was convinced that their bodies must bo somewhere on the premises, as if they bad been spared they would have found their way to some neighboring place. The youngest child is supposed to have been hut a few moid Us old. The Overend house is near Mr. Chapin's ranch, but is somewhat iso lated, being three or four miles distant from any neighbors. It is supposed that the deed was done by Indians for the sake of plunder, although nothing upon which to base' any suspicion had been noted nt the lime our informant left. Overend was an elderly man and had resided in the neighborhood of Ban Dieguito for the last four or live years, and is well known in town, lie cultivated a small farm, and raised a good deal of market produce, lie also owned some stock, cows, horses, etc. The Coming Entertainment. The dramatic entertainment prom ised our citizens for next .Saturday night bids fair to be a complete suc cess. Mr. Neill is moving actively in the matter of completing his arrange ments; and besides Mr. Piercy, has a number of favorite amateurs engaged for the entertainment. We have seen a portion of the new local farce to be brought out entitled The Capture of Vasquez," and can speak in its favor. The piece will contain some excellent hits. It is said that some of the men who took part in the Vasquez expe dition will assist Mr. Neill in bringing out the play. o A Splendid Paper." I'rom die San Jose Arsus.
