It is almost impossible for one to take in the extent of the settlement of which Anaheim is the center by the ordinary hurried visits of the corres pondent or tourist. Not quite six years ago the traveler, after leaving the settlement of Los Nietos (then, too, in its infancy), passed over an immense uninhabited plain and through a dense undergrowth of mus tard and malva, seeing no sign of civ ilization until he had arrived at the oasis created by a German family, de voted to the cultivation of the wine grape and known as Anaheim. At that time the voting precinct included within its area five government town ships of land, with hardly fifty voters. Then there was no settlement east of the Santa Ana river from the Yorbas at the mouth of the cafion to the Refu gio ranch, near the sea. In only six years' time —and during those six years unexampled in the memory of the oldest citizen as years of drouth— a most marvelous revolution has been effected. In a solid block around Anaheim, twenty thousand acres of land have been sold In small tracts ranging from twenty to one hundred and sixty acres each, and at least three-fourths of this acreage has been placed under annual cultivation. The voting population of the precinct has increased from the small number men tioned above, until it is tallied by hundreds, and that, too, after making much smaller the exterior limits of the precinct. On the east side of the liver there have been started three settlements—those of Orange, Santa Ana and Tustin City, each of which is growing with unexampled rapidity. Probably, however, a better idea of the increase in population and wealth can be given by a reference to the exports of last year from Anaheim Landing. The year Was extremely disastrous to the farmer. \\ ith but a scant fall of rain, late Spring frosts united to ren der futile his labors. Notwithstand ing this, the number of tons of grain shipped from Anaheim Landing Mas fifty per cent, of the entire crop of this county and that of San Bernardino. This year it will largely exceed that figure, there being a much larger area seeded and the yield being fully up to the capacity ofthe land. We doubt if there is afforded in the history of any other newly settled locality an in stance of such steady and constant growth as has been alforded by this section, and we believe that this is due to its unrivalled natural advantages more than to any other cause. Maj. M. J. Wicks came through di rect from Memphis to this point. Ac companying him is a little grandson, who seems to be rather frail. He has on'y been here about a week, yet our splendid climate is already beginning its magical work upon him. The roses tire forming on his cheeks, his eyes are growing brighter and his step more elastic. He goes from morning till night, taking great interest in the swallows and "wabbits," and when night comes he lays his little body down and enjoys in all its fullness "Nature's sweet restorer,balmy sleep;" for the nights are just as cool and re freshing for slumber as the days are temperate and inviting for play. There is no place like Southern Cali fornia for children.—[Wilmington En terprise. Intense excitement prevailed in Vi salla June 22d, on account of reported discoveries of fabulous wealth in the Mineral King district, sixty miles east of that place. Returns of an assay of the croppings made by John J. Valen tine, Superintendent of Wells, Fargo & Co., show $125 per ton in silver and gold. The ledge is plainly in sight for MS or seven miles, and forty or fifty feet wide. An immense quantity of the rock from which the assay was made is above ground—the discoverers calculate millions of tons. There is an abundance of wood and water on the ground.

A Huge Estate —Milk-Urowlng and liiittcr making l !■<• Itnncltos. Somewhere, about thirteen years ago, upon Puenta lleyes, in Marin county, three brothers engaged In the occupation of dairying. By many it was considered an uphill business, but as time rolled along the name of the brothers became common among the moneyed men of the country. The fickle goddess smiled steadfastly upon them; gradually, almost imper ceptibly, the power began to exceed the weight, and about the year 18(54 the name of Steele Bros. Hashed upon the markets of San Francisco as one of the most successful dairy firms of the Pacific slope. About this time one of the brothers was called upon by tho people to fill the position of County Judge) and for four years the name of Hon. George Steele was syn onomous with the quintessence of honor and legal discrimination. In the year 1860 the interests of the brothers in Marin county were dis pos. d of, and the firm immediately turned their attention to Southern California —a region which was just beginning to attract the attention of settlers and assume a prominent posi tion among the list of " El Dorados" of the Pacific slope. After a careful examination of tho ranehos "Coral de Piedra," "Pismo" and "Bolsa de Cha misal," situated in this county and aggregating something more than forty thousand acres, were purchased by the brothers and one of the most Herculean tasks of the kind that has ever been undertaken was inaugu rated. Success has attended them in almost every venture,and to-day there is scarcely a market in the world where dairy produce is sold but is fa miliar with the name of Steele Bros. During the residence of Judge Steele in San Rafael the writer made his ac quaintance, and sitting to-day in the ranch-house, enjoying his hospitality, I can hardly realize that nearly one fourth of the years commonly allotted to man has so quietly passed away. THE RANCHES Lie in the San Luis Obispo Valley, about five miles east of the town of San Luis Obispo, and embrace one of the most fertile agricultural dis tricts In the State. The soil is rich, well-wooded and watered. Numerous large streams, flowing out of the mountains, meander the valley from northwest to southeast, rendering ir rigation, unless in an exceedingly dry year, entirely unnecessary. Fruits of various kinds (lourish finely, and in the more sheltered localities oranges are being successfully grown. In a few years I have no doubt the valley will be second to none in the produc tion of most of the semi-tropical fruits. MANAGEMENT OF THE HUGE ESTATE. Almost the first thought occurring to the visitor is, can this immense tract of land be jirofifably handled ? This was the question I asked myself, and after a careful examination lam compelled to answer in the affirma tive. The most perfect order and precision is noticeable in the most mi nute details, and a strict double-entry account kept of every transaction, a young man being employed for this purpose. There are about three thous and acres under cultivation, two thous and of which is devoted to the pro duction of barley and wheat, ihe re mainder to corn and potatoes. Wheat grows finely, yielding from twenty to twenty-five bushels per acre. Rust is is comparatively unknown. DAIRVINO. Although the larger portion of this immense tract is admirably adapted to agriculture, the principal part is Used for dairying and stock purposes. The brothers own upwards of four thousand head of cattle; two thousand of which are dairy cows. The ranch is divided into six dailies; and I am assured by Mr. Hemphill, the book-keeper, that the net receipts per cow during the past season were fifty dollars; gross in excess of seventy-five. To carry on this im mense business requires the steady employment of a hundred men. There are upwards of one hundred and fifty miles of fence, and the value of the buildings may be safely estimated to be worth twenty thousand dollars. Of course there is a considerable amount of lumber required to keep the fences and buildings in repair, and for this purpose $3,000 were expended during the past year. Notwithstanding, the enterprise has proven financially a success, beyond the most sanguine ex pectations of its progenitors. The care and anxiety consequent upon the con stantly increasing business of the ranch, has induced the owners to offer for sale a considerable portion. With this object in view, the entire tract has been subdivided, and is now of fered for sale at prices varying from one dollar and twenty-five cents to LOS ANGELES, SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 4, 1874. seventy-five dollars per acre, and such terms as cannot fail to induce a speedy settlement of nearly the entire tract. I had intended to say something of the White Sulphur Springs, the new town of Arroyo Grande, Strawberry Beach, etc., but will be compelled to reserve it until my next for the HERALD. Kan Luis Obispo, June 28th, 1874. Prof. Haskins and the College. Editor Herald: Thanks to the courtesy of the Manager of the Her ald, we again revert to the college subject, hoping to develop some new phase at each recurrence and show the importance of such educational facili ties as we shall be able to offer, in its bearing upon our immediate pros perity. There is no valid reason why the Southern California Sanitary Hotel and Industrial College should not he the best institute of learning on this coast, Combining all the advantages ot a thorough classical educational es tablishment with the equally impor tant practical knowledge only attain able in the actual battle of "life—for the reason that it has been tho constant study of the friends of tbis movement for years to so mould the mind of the young as to not only give them the insight into tho highest realms of thought and action, but to simplify as much as possible the educational pro cess. It would bo a good and wise ar rangement if Professor Haskins could be induced to co-operate with the founders of this institute, thereby making an establishment so desirable as to leave nothing to ask in the way of facilities for learning. The conservatory of music has al ways been a favorite feature with us; and the higher branches of art, as painting, drawing and sculpture has ever been an unending source of pleas ure and profit. There is not the slightest doubt that if even a synop sis of the plan mapped out by lis and published while in the East were placed before the public here and else where, their desirability and feasibil ity would be so apparent that there could be no lack of harmonious co-op eration. F. M. Shaw. Los Angeles, July 3d. A Pen Picture. We clip tho following from aletUr Wfttten by Col. Hodge, of the Santa Barbara Press party, and published in the Detroit (Michigan) Union: I have taken time to look at and around Los Angeles from every direc tion. To the west of the city, and within its limits are some fine rolling hills, with valleys between, known as the " BEAUDRY TERRACE," Owned by P. Beaudry, Esq.. compris ing some 1,600 acres. From these hills, or "Terrace," a Que view is had of the city, with its numerous orange and lemon groves, and vineyards ex tending for many miles up and down tbe valley. But the finest panoramic view, I think, is from the "Mesa" (tableland) one mile east of the city and east of the Los Angeles river, near the residence of Wm. H. Workman, Esq. From the "Mesa" a view is had on a clear day, like tho present, of the Sierra Macho range of mountains ex tending for forty miles to the east, and on the north side of San Gabriel Valley; thence looking northwest a view is had of "Cahuengu (pronounced Cowanga) Mountains" for a like dis tance; to the west of the Cily of Los Angeles, extending for miles north and south, engirt with beautiful groves of oranges, lemons, limes, al monds, English walnuts and other fruits, with numerous and extensive vineyards. A more distant view to the west to the left of the " Beaudry Terrace" and fourteen miles distant is the Pacific in plain view and the site of the future city of "Truxton." To the southwest is San Pedro Bay and Wilmington twenty-one miles distant, which is the seaport of Los Angeles, while away to the south and southeast extends the beautiful valley of the Los Angeles and Lower San Gabriel rivers to Anaheim, Gospel Swamp, and other fine growing towns and vil lages. To be appreciated fully the river must be seen, and no person can portray it in all its beauty and grand eur. We are indebted to Mr. Work man for his calling our attention to this fine view and for his open and noble generosity while at his pleasant home.
