C TV AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY JULY 2. 1874. Our Railroad. We have before us the " Report of Barometrical surveys, made for the Los Angeles and Independence Rail road Company by Joseph U. Craw ford, Chief Engineer." The report contains nineteen pages of matter, in which is condensed a great deal of val uable information, relative to the esti mated cost of the road, the resources of the country through which it will run, its probable trade and the cost of operating tho roaJ after it is com pleted. The report contains a descrip tion of two routes by which a road DUty be constructed between this city and Independence. The report reads: " The first route begins at Spadra, the present terminus of the Southern Pa cific Railroad, the line can be laid closely upon the surface with easy gradients not exceeding thirty feet per mile until Cucamong ais reached three hundred and fifty feet above and twelve miles distant from the initial point, thence the line should be laid along the foothills adhering to the line of the present ore road, crossing Lytle Creek upon a low trestle bridge and passing the project ing spur of hills west of Martin's house. This will bring the line to a point some eleven miles northwest of San Bernardino, and twenty-six from Spadra, over coming a rise of nine hundred and fifty feet in fourteen miles with a maximum gradient of sixty-five feet T mile. Thence ascending the west ' "•'ion Cafion, until the point of side ot v... ... 1, . divergence of Brown -. from the main cafion is reached tit a point t iirty-five miles from Spadra and ai". elevation of 1,100 feet above Martin's, requiring a gradient of one hundred and twenty-five feet per mile, thence the line can be laid up the main wash with good direction and light work until the summit of the Cajon Pass is r.-ached, an elevation of 1,350 feet be ing overcome in nine miles with a maximum gradient of one hundred and fifty feet per mile. Thence de scending the northern slope of the Sierras towards the valley of the Mo jove over a broad, unbroken slope, cov erc:l with juniper, sage and other kinds of brush. The descent will re quire the following gradients: For the first six miles one hundred feet per mile, for the succeeding nine miles eighty feet per mile, ending with a light thirty feet gradient which lands the line to a point near the bend of the Mojave opposite Point of Rocks, and seventy miles from Spadra. Thence the line should be laid north with moderate and slightly undulating gradients traversing Black's Lake and Dry Lake Summit; thence nearly level and bending easterly towards Panamint Mountain, skirting Carlton Lake and passing west of Large Borax Lake, to a low gap in an extension of the Coso Mountains; thence direct to Little Lake Cafion, through which the present ore and stage road passes, and at which point the route from Soled ad pas 3 will naturally connect; thence following closely upon the line of said ore road, with easy grades and light work, until reaching Owen's Lake, one hundred and eighty-seven miles from Spadra; thence skirting the west side of the lake through the town of Lone Pine and on up the broad valley of Owen's River until our objective point is reached at the town of Indepen dence, two hundred and twenty-two miles from the terminus of the South ern Pacific Railroad, at Spadra, mid at an elevation of 4,'AO feet above tide water. The physical difficulties to be over come upon this route are readily sur mountable, the only heavy work upon the entire line being comprised in the immediate vicinity of the Cajon Sum mit; this, the report says, can be materially reduced by a judicious choice of ground when the line comes to be finally located. From Spadra to Martin's the line Is laid upon the surface, the only Items of cost being the Cucamonga and Lytic Creek bridges, thence up the Cajon Cafion with alternate cuttings and fillings. After passing the summit with a heavy through cut, or may be short tunnel, whichever may prove the cheapest, the line is laid over a coarse sandy mesa, entirely free from shift ing sands, over which tho road can be constructed economically and rapidly, the only work requiring to he done for miles being to clear ami grub the line. This feature will he a characteristic of the whole route after passing the Summit, with tho exception of short sections at Coso Cafion, Little Lake, and Owens Lake, at each of which places a small additional expenditure will be needed to construct the road bed. "South of Cajon Pass there is an abundance of water, while north of the summit it can be had at the Bend of the Mohave, Black's Lake, Carle ton's Lake, Borax Lake, Little Lake, and thence forward to Independence, wherever needed.'' Timber, for building material, is abundant in the < 'ajon Pass and at several convenient points east of the Pass. Good cedar ties may be had at an expense not exceeding twenty-five cents each. Tbe survey passes through the Cuca rnonga ranch and within eleven miles of San Bernardino, but may be run within six miles of that town. The Holcomb Valley trade will connect with the road just north of the sum mit. The Arizona trade will reach and leave the road at the Bend of the Mohave, by which $30 per ton will be saved on all freight to and from the Territory. Panamint freight will be accommodated in the vicinity of Borax Lake, and the completion of this road will revive the declining borax trade. Cerro Gordo freight will connect with the road at Owens Lake. Independence, situated in a fine farm ing country and surrounded by im mense ore deposits, will be the ter minus of the road. For convenience in estimating the cost of graduations, Engineer Craw ford has divided the route into three subdivisions, as follows: Subdivision No. l—From Bpadra (<•• he Mohave, 70 miles; cost of graduation nUA) per mile $lnl,ooo Sublvisinn No. 2.—Mojave to L ttlo Lnl ', 76 miles; cost of graduation MOo per mile 45,000 Subdivision No. a.—Little Lake to In dependence, 70 miles; cost of gradua tion $Six) per mile 00,800 Grading nve miles of sidings at ;m«i per mile 4,000 Wood and water stations 12,000 Stations and freight houses 10,000 Engineering and superintendence 28,1100 $1,413 por mile ttSl,4oo The above estimate is for the gradu ation of an ordinary gauge railroad, fo:irfeet, eight and one-half inches, bridged and stationed ready for the track and rolling stock, the character and cost of which is a matter which is 1 'ft for the consideration of tho Board of Direction. As the work is mainly light, the adoption of a nar row three-feet gauge will only reduce the above total about ten per cent. The cost of water and freight stations, engineering, etc., being the same for either gauge. The description of route number two is as follows: Beginning at San Fernando Station, the present terminus of tho Southern Pacific Railroad, the line can be laid through the cafion now occupied by Telegrap'i Stage Road, thence by short tiinnei thi'OUgb the summit, via Lyon's Station, until we roach the head-waters of the S:iuta Clara river, tinHCe swinging eastwardly into the Soledad Cafion tho line is laid up the same, conforming to sinuositie?, which render necessary tho use of sharp curves of small radius, or else to make frequent expensive rock cut tings in straightening out the bends of the cafion. Thence surmounting the summit with a maximum gradi ent of one hundred feet per mile, thence descending into the Mojave Desert with equal rapidity, the line should be laid to pass west of Buck Horn Station and the Twin Peaks to the Dry Lake, near Desgrt Springs, thence skirting the east tide of said Lake, it passes via Mesquit Spring and Tortoise Cafion direct to Little Lake, at which point it coalesces with route No. 1, and thence forward as sumes the same line, making Inde pendence two hundred and nine miles from the present railroad terminus at San Fernando. Tho physical difficulties which are met with upon this route are at first quite formidable. The passage at the San Fernando mountain, which oc curs immediately after leaving the railroad fetation, will necessitate either the use of exceedingly steep gradients or the expenditure of a large sum in a tunnel and approaches. This region is so broken and the choice of alter nate lines is so great, that an estimate of cost made without having a careful instrumental examination, must ne cessarily be only vaguely approxi mate. From the railroad station north a vertical rise of seven hundred and fifty feet has to be overcome in five and a half miles, a portion of which distance cannot be made avail able on account of the formation of the ground, while in descending north towards Lyons Station we encounter within a mile and a half a fall of four hundred and thirty feet. If we use a gradient of one hundred and twenty five feet per mile upon the southern and one hundred feet upon tho north ern slope of this pass, it is estimated that an expenditure of at least $110,000 would be required to grade the first ten miles after leaving the railroad sta. tion. The work of building a railroad up the Soledad Cafion has been already commenced by the Atlantic and Pa cific Railroad Company, and most of the cuttings being opened up gives a good idea of the character of material and extent of the work required to be done. The cafion is in places close and crooked, whereby the line is forced to cross and recross the drain age frequently. The summit of Sole dad Pass is broad and flat and cannot be materially reduced by cutting down, as the line descends north into the Mojave desert, a maximum gradient of one hundred feet to the mile can be obtained by a side-hill development, at a sacrifice of distance. From this point forward the line can be cheaply laid upon the surface, until a connection is made with route No. 1 at Little Lake. Crossing the Mojave Desert we encounter two sand belts, one south of Buck Horn Station, which is about eight miles wide, and the other south, of Desert Springs, of about ten miles in extent. However, there is no evidence of any consider able amount of shifting sand. From the vicinity of Buck Horn Station a road might be opened up connecting with the Holcomb region and the Ar izona trade at the bend of the Mojave. In the vicinity of Desert Springs there are some extensive deposits of borax, while further north, near Tortoise Cafion, we cross the wagon road to Fl Paso, Slate Range and Panamint. Water is abundant along this route. Timber will be scarce after leaving Soledad Cafion. The following is the estimated cost of graduation: Subdivision No. I.—From San Fernan do to Uuckborn Staiion, 03 miles. Cost of graduation, 43,201 per mile $201,000 S'.lodlvlson No. 2 —From Bunkhorn to Utile I.uke, 70 miles.

On such a road, light engines, costing only about §4,000 each and weighing not more than six or seven tons, with wide driving-wheels, cov ered With tires of vulcanized rubber, are used. Such engines are very pow erful, and will do a vast amount of work. The following is the estimated cost of one mile of wooden railway su perstructure: Stringers—CxS and 31,4.1,618 feet nm.,fl $22 !.„ $ofi O Ties—Sew, t<* 6o cts 440 Wedges BO Framing and track-laying 600 Transportation of Materials 450 Rate per mile $2,51.0 The total equipment of the road is set down thus: 8 light 0 ton engines, Q $4,000 $32,000 6 passenger coaches, ■■< *i,SOJ U,l» 0 40 platform cars, /<$ 3300 12,000 2j box cars, .j. 3100 8,00" Baggage, P. 0., Express and hand-cars.. 2,000 Total c qnipt&e nt ..$03,000 The total co.t of the railway via Cajon Pass is estimated to be: Graduation,bridging and stations. etc..5521,400 Superstructure on 222 miles at $2,500 per mile 555.000 Equipment—rolling stock and motive power 03,000 Rate per Utile, $4,233.

One train each way will carry during a year of three hundred days 12,000 tons of oro and bullion and return with 9,000 tons of inland freight, mak ing a total of 21,000 tons which can be carried at a cost of SlO 00 per ton, and thus earn ten per dent, on the in vestment, besides paying largely for repairs on roadway and machinery. Tho capacity of this cheap wooden road is rated at not less than 200,000 tons per annum. The only increase of expense would be in rolling stock and for hands to run the additional trains. In conclusion, Engineer Crawford says: "I have estimated the road to be built solely of timber, in the most economical manner, oper ated by light and inexpensive rolling stock and motive power, and at a low rate of speed, not to exceed twelve miles an hour. My object in so esti mating has been to submit an esti mate of cost which would place the improvement within the reach of the residents upon the line. As business increases and the country settles up, this road can readily be laid with a T rail, the stringers being cut and placed as ties." The editor of the Herald acknowl edges the receipt of an invitation to participate in a complimentary din ner, to be given to Hon. Benjamin P. AVERY, United States Minister to China, at the Grand Hotel, San Fran cisco, on Wednesday the Bth instant. Did time and circumstances permit we should be happy to attend this meeting designed to honor a distin guished and—with pleasure we say it —honest editor, and worthy gentle man. Benjamin P. Avery, is one of God's noblemen, and this compli mentary dinner is one of the few events of the kind that has its origin in sincere friendship for the man, owing nothing to toadyism to place and power. May we always be represent ed at home and abroad by such men as Benjamin P. Avery. A New Publication. Mr. G. C. King, who has been can vassing this city for A. L. Bancroft's works on the Bible, has just received from their publishing house, in San Francisco, a new work, entitled, "Washington Outside and Inside." We were so attracted by its title and appearance that we gave it a thorough examination, and must Bay it is a rare production. It treats fully and mer itoriously, as well as artistically, of our National Capitol, and briefly of almot all it contains. The city, Gov ernment buildings, Congress, our pub lic men, etc. It contains about fifty engravings, some of them fine steel plate engravings on colored paper, it is a work of great artistic skill and rare merit, and must commend itself to every one ut sight, it is a book of over 750 pages, and is sold at subscrip tion at the following very low rates, which is another great incentive for people to purchase: Extra English cloth, sprinkled edge, $4 00; Fine leather cloth, sprinkled edge, $4 oO; Turkey morocco, marble edge, $5 50. If our citizens want a picture and nar rative of Washington City—"outside and inside—the origin, growth, ex cellencies, abuses, beauties and per sonages of our governing cLty, buy this choice book, by Geo. Alfred Towns end. Mr. Skirm, counsel for the License party, will apply early next week to Judge Belden for a writ of mandamus on the Board of Supervisors, to compel that body to order a Local Option election for the town of Santa Cruz.

Washington, June 30. — IT. T. Blow arrived here today and In com pany with ex-Post muster Dennison, had an interview with Secretary Bris tow, with reference to their duties as Commissioners for the temporary government of the District of Colum bia. The tenor of Blow's conversa tion clearly indicated that he will ac cept the position. More of the Indemnity Matter. Washington, June 30.—Secretary Fish remarked in conversation to-day that the demand on Spain for indem nity for American prisoners executed in Cuba by order of Burriel, was in accordance with the protocol, concern ing the settlement of the Virjrinius affair, apart from the duty imposed upon the Government to claim satis faction for such wrongs. The Worst not Told. Nnv York, June 30.—Tilton says he did not publish all of Beecher's let ter of apology, and that the portion suppressed is worse than all. Female Employee* Discharged. Washington, July I.—Three hun dred and seventy-live females in the Bureau Engraving and Printing De partment were discharged yesterday; fourteen of them fainted upon receiv ing their dismissal. Loss of the St am or Fnradny. Halifax, June 30.—-The steamer Faraday, engaged in laying the New Atlantic cable, left Halifax a week ago, and now intelligence from Pictou just received represents that she struck an iceberg oil' Sussex, and is a tolal wreck. Public Debt Stateineut. Washington, July I.—The Public debt statement issued to-day shows a reduction of 32,180,197; balauces in Treasury at close of business to-day, were, currency $14,570,010; spec al deposits, legal tenders for redemption of certificates of deposit, $58,700,000; coin, $74,205,304; including coin cer tificates, $22,825,100; outstanding legal tenders, 5382,000,000. Refused to Pay. New York, July I.—The Atlantic and Great Western Railroad Company declined to-day to receive and pay the coupons on their first mortgage bonds. Au Early Close of the tubuu War An ticipated. New York, June 30.—Cuban news indicates more than ever tho inability of authorites to subdue insurrection. The proposed draft of troops from some of the interior towns threatened by Insurgents is a confession of weak ness, which added to daily increasing financial embarrassment, it is thought will compell an early close of a six year war. There is an under current rumor that Mr. Cushing, at Madrid, has taken advantage of the crisis, to make United States mediators to in sure peace on terms which shall ad vance our commercial and political interests in the Island. The Achinese Uefeat the Dutch. New York, June 30.—The Achinese, on the night of March 20th, attacked the Dutch fort, c.iptured it, and over whelmed the garrison. The loss of the Dutch is placed at 1,000 killed, and 4,500 wounded. A great number being laborers employed to work on the fort. Colonists' dwellings, out side the ships, were required for wounded, wh<» i the chiefs permitted to be removed from the shore, as much to embarrass the navy as an act of humanity. The news of the com plete annihilation of the Dutch expe dition, is known to the officials at Sin gapore, and is purposely withheld from the press. Npain (ale 11 psn r»r Indemnity. Washington, June3o.—A dispatch says Mr. Cushing, U. S. Minister to Spain, has made a peremptory demand upon the Spanish Government for full indemnity for the Virginias prisoners slain by,order of General Burrell. The same authority makes Secretary Fish say that the American Government has made a prompt demand and one quite as decided and peremptory as that made by the British Government, for indemnity for the lives of prisoners destroyed and the loss to their fami lies. FOREIGN NEWS. spin.i. it News. Madrid, June 30.—General Zabulla has arrived at Miranda. The army of North is falling back in good order and will bo rapidly reorganized. Re inforcements are arriving. General Loma has been placed in command of a division. It is reported that the Carlists murdered many of the priso ners taken in the recent battles. Bayonne, June 30.—The Carlists claim thut eight hundred prisoners fell into their hands during the re t.eat ofthe Republican army after the buttle of Muro. London, June 30. — A Standard special reports that the Republican loss iv the last attack on Fstella, to have been eight hundred killed and wounded. London, July 1. —A special dispatch to the Standard says that Marshal Serrano has decided to take command ofthe Rtpub.ican army immediately. t:uro|t«ail Ncum. London, July I.—The Paris corres pondent ofthe Times says that among the stories current there is one that the death of Marshall Concha was in stigated by Serrano, because he was an Alphonsist. Another is that by the death of Concha the influence of Ger many is increased, which is unfavora ble to the restoration of a dynasty at tached to the Pope. A report reaches here that an acci dental tire in two houses nearEstella, was made a pretext by the Carlists for inassacreing all the wounded Repub licans who fell into their hands. There is great excitement in Corba consequent upon the c ections, which take place on Sunduy next. Thirty citizens were killed and wounded yes terday by tne troops called out to quell disorders. Further trouble is appre hended on the day of election. SAN FRANCISCO.
