I'a-sengers will take the 4 o'clock p. M. train. Mr. ('. Phillips, of Spadra, shipped sixty-five bales of wool through the city last week, consigned to San Fran cisco. Mr. E. M. Piercy, who is acting agent for the Biancha Opera troupe, looks for their arrival here about the l.ist of this month. The circus will be here next Friday. The boys should commence at once to stow away their odd quarters in pre paration for the occasion. Mr. Addis packed up his tents and photographic equipages yesterday and departed for San Buenaventura. He expects to return to Los Angeles be fore long. We would direct the attention of cheep-owners to the advertisement of "P. B." which appears under the head of "New Advertisements" this morning. There will be a meeting of the Di rectors of the Chamber of Commerce this evening: A full attendance is requested, as business of importance M ill be transacted. The case of Lucca Marasovich, in dicted for manslaughter, was tried in the District Court yesterday. The jury found the defendant guilty of assault and battery. The following unstamped letters are held in the Postofflce: A. D. Staples, Banner City, Cal.; John M. Huntley, Carson City, Nev.; Mrs. M. F. Van nest, Fleming, N. Y. Messrs. P. F. Roth A Co., of San Francisco, who are stopping in our City, purchased last week three thous and sheep of fine quality, which they propose to keep in this county. Joe Murphy, with a company of ten actors, leaves San Francisco to-day and will be here doubtless this week. He will regale our play-goers with "Maum Crea" and "Help," two of his most popular specialties. In the article "Trip to Wilmington" in our Sunday's issue we were made to say, "The grain is hauled from the depot to the warehouse on account of tlie producer." This is a mistake — tlie warehouse company haul it at their own expense. We acknowledge the compliments of Pippenburg's Band, paid last niirht with a fine serenade and three rousing cheers for the Herald. The bind lias only been organized about a week and already furnishes some very cred itable music. Gentlemen, our re gards. We understand that Mr. Samuel Meyer has made another purchase of business property on Main street, ad joining Dr. Terry's drug store, giving him now a total frontage of seventy feet. We can probably look for some fine improvements on the property be fore long. The Turn-Verein of this city are thinking of starting an evening or Sunday School for the instruction of their members who have not enjoyed early advantages of learning. The school will be conducted by members of the society, and both German and .English will be taught. Dr. M. S. Jones has entered into a copartnership with Dr. Hardy, an old resident and highly esteemed physi cian of Anaheim. Dr. Jones has al ready removed his office to Anaheim, but makes visits to Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday of each week to attend to his patients here. Mr. I. M. Hellman, with his family, returned to this city last Saturday from Cucamongo. Mr. Hellman's family have been rusticating in that hosiptable locality for some time past. While ruralizing, Mr. Hellman did a nice bit of gunning, and in an hour's time killed twenty rabbits and fifteen quails. There's no telling what he would have killed if it had been a good day for game. Mr. J. H. Brady is a hewer of wood and a drawerof water; principally the former. Recently he left some wood with Mr. Ferguson, the commission merchant, to be sold on his account and risk. When called for, the return* for the wood were not forthcoming and a quarrel arose between the parties in interest, in which the commission merchant drew a revolver and flour ished it about to a considerable extent. Justice Gray will settle it. Judge O'Melveney fined another lot of delinquent jurors yesterday, as will be Been by our court report. It costs anywhere from five or ten dollars and a curtain lecture toofl'end the majesty of the law now-a-days. If our citizens do not become more prompt in answer ing the summons to appear as jurors, Judge O'Melveny promises to place a higher tariff on the luxury of exemp tion. We have commented upon this subject heretofore, and can now only reiterate our hope that tbe Judge will fully maintain the authority of the law and enforce the duty of c*ery citi zen when required. At a general meeting of Orange Lodge, I. O. B. 8., held on Sunday, July 12th, the following officers were installed for the ensuing term: Sam'l Prager, President; A: W. Edelman, Yk-e-Preßident; I. W.

Prager, responded iv a very able manner. Map showing the geographical and commercial position of Los Angeles; the system of Trans continental Railroads on the Pa cific ("oast; the impassable ranges of mountains parallel to the coast t orth and south of San Gorgonio Pass —the only natural ?ass in the mountains from iower 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 and to Salt Lake; ahw the thirty fifth and thirty-second parallel routes and their junction at Al buquerque, as proposed by Col. Scott. The names of the follow ing important places in the coun ty are omitted from the map for want of space: Anaheim, popu lation, 1,500; San Gabriel, 200; El Monte, 100; Spadra, 50; Gal latin, 100; Santa Ana, 50; West minster, 50; Compton, 50; San Fernando, 50; Florence, 50; Tus tin City, 50. These are each the nucleusof a rich farming section. It is plain to be seen that Los Angeles county is the represent ative county of Southern Califor nia, and tho emporium of Los Angeles county and Southern California is Los Angeles City, centrally located therein ; also centrally located in the best val ley on the Globe. Comp'on snd Vicinity. A lal'road depot, a country tavern and store, one blacksmith shop, a neat little church cost ing $3,800, a nice pub lic schoo house which cost nearly $4,000, two stories high, for a graded school, with a few farm houses scattered over the surrounding coun try,constli utesthe village of Compton, if village it may be called, situatid in as beautiful a section as can be found. This settlemeut is eight miles north of Wilmington, and twelve miles south of Los Angeles, on the Los An geles and San Pedro Railroad. The social nnd moral condition of the peo ple of Compton is first-class. Regu lar preaching is si stal led every Sab bath in the church, a 1» *ge and inter esting Sunday school is maintained tb* year round, and a good graded school is kept up regularly, ten months each year. The school district num bers nearly two hundred children of school age. This settlement lies with in the limits ofthe artesian well dis trict, and it does one good this warm, dry season to see the wells flowing, throwing their cooling streams into the air, glistening in the sunlight and filling the channels marked out for them by the husbandman who util izes it in the production of as fine crop 9 as grow anywhere. Thanks to Mr. G. D. Compton, who met us at the depot with his carriage and drove us first east, out across the Los Angeles rive' 1 to the San Gabriel, m iking a circui of a few miles through mid cerebrated corn-producing region. This section is similar to the Los Nie tos country and is about equally re nowned for its immense yield of corn, barley, vines, and all kinds of vegeta bles, and as far as the cultivation of fruits have been tested, they prove a great success. We passed by ma y fields which yield annually one hun dred bushels of corn with very little cultivation, one hundred and twenty have been produced here.and frequent ly eighty bushels with no cultivation —no labor hut the planting and har vesting. With good cultivation, one hundred bushels of barley can here be produced; from sixty to eighty being an average yield. Six crops of alfalfa are cut in twelve months, yielding from twelve to fifteen tons to the acre. Here on the wild, unimproved lands is a growth of mustard standing ten or twelve feet high and beneath it is a heavy growtli of blue-joint grass, burr-clover and al-filerea, forming a growth of several tons to the acre of the best feed upon which stock can subsist. In the bed of Los Angeles river and adjoining its banks and all along the course of the San Gabriel river, as well as in the low tracts, have sprung up a growth of willow, 9ince the Americans commenced the settlement of this country, about six years ago, and the growth has been so rapid that one acre is now considered a constant future supply for fuel for a family. It is estimated that some of the heaviest growths of this six-year old willow timber land will cut one hundred cords of wood to the acre. Who can estimate the value of this element of prosperity in this compar atively timuerless country? No irri gation is needed iv all this section for the production of grains or fruits or even corn. We ought to give the im mense yield of the potato crops which have been produced here. From 300 to 700 bushels to the acre have been raised in ene crop. Mr. Compton told us that in one year he sold $1,000 worfh of potatoes from two acres of land. Of course this was an extra yield. Flowing wells, although really uot a necessity, here can be easily ob tained. Here I think we saw some of th-* most perfect osage orange hedges i hat ever grew. Before speaking of the price and more fully of the qual ity of these lands, we will meutiou, further, some of the extraordinary productions of this neighborhood. These statements, together with the foregoing, were given to us by truth ful meu, and may be relied on. Cab bage-heads have been raised here weighing thirty-six pounds; fifty-one pounds of sweet potatoes have been taken from one hill; three crops of barley from one sowing, being two volunteer crops, the third crop yield ing fifty bushels to the ao.e, have been produced. Thus we might particular i c, but 'tis unnecessary. iNow for the price of these lands ly ing from one to three or four miles from the depot at Compton, in the neighborhood of the Los Angeles and San Gabriel rivers, and almost all the unoccupied lands, ready, or nearly bo, for the plow, and the lots or tracts are so laid oil" that a road or street ac commodates almost every forty acres: These lauds can be bought in forty acre lots or any size above that, to suit purchasers, varyiug in price from twenty dollars upwards; unimproved large tracts for the iigun. ■ just named, while choice forty-acre tracts are held as high as thirty-five and forty dollars. We passed by one improved fine forty acre tract for sale at fifty dollars per acre, including buildings, crops, etc., or less the crops, for forty dollars. If stockmen would consult tluir inter ests they would pay twenty-five or thirty dollars for these lands, rather than go back into the foothills or out on the mesa, or table hinds, to buy, simply because they can get land for live dollars per acre. And why? Be MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY. cause one acre of these lands produce as much feed, and that, too, all the year round, as twenty acres of tbe cheap hill or table land. Now the question maybe asked, Are these loca tions healthy, in so close proximity to these rivers and where the land is so moist ? We answer, Yes. There is no malaria here; nothing to produce biliousness any more than in upland locations. Although the growth of vegetation is enormous, there are no frosts to kill it, but it dries up when it matures, and new vegetation is con stantly springing forth. The soil through all this section is a light, sandy loam. From what has been said, is it not plain to be seen and can not our Eastern friends understand that this land is cheap at thirty, forty, and even sixty and seventy-five dol lars per acre? We say to immigrants, to all looking for homes in this beau tiful valley—this most lovely section of Southern California, —you will find these lands as we have describe ! them, and they are for sa'e. Most of the land alluded to is in the hands of G. D. Compton, land agent. More of Compton in our next is9ue. Another Pioneer Gone. The Express thus comments upon fie death of John Reed, an old and well remembered citizen of this coun ty: "At four o'clock yesterday after noon, John Reed, one of the earliest pioneers of California, died at his home, on the Puente ranch. Mr. Reed came here at the same time Mr. Workman, Mr. Rowland and others arrived, in 1837, or thereabouts. His brother, James Reed, died about two years ago, and they both enjoyed a wide celebrity as trappers and hunters among early frontiersmen. During the Mexican war, Mr. Reed, like all the Americans here at the time, and many of the native Californians too, espoused the cause of his native country, and rendered valuable ser vice to the American arms and interest. Ho was a son-in-law of the late John Rowland, father of our present Sheriff, and had a valuable estate in the Puente ranch. During the early immigration of the gold seekers across the plains Mr. Reed's hospitality and generosity were pro verbial. He was kind of heart, warm of disposition, and dispensed his bounties with a liberal hand. He was about fifty-six years of age, and dies regretted by all who knew him. His funeral took place this (Monday) after noon, and was attended by the Vet erans of the Mexican War, the Ma sonic Order, and a host of friends from every walk of life." Where is Tom Collins? A card emanating from the New- York Postofflce passed through the office at this place last Saturday, which is something of a curiosity in its way. The card seems to be a sort of scape-goat upon which everybody has laid hands with maledictions as it passed through the various Postoffices of the country. On the back is a com ical picture, executed with a pen, of four men apparently searching in tently for something or somebody. One has a pistol, another a club, the third a knife and the last a gun. They are looking for Tom Collins. The face of the card is thu« diversified with su perscriptions: "Where's Tom Collins? Left Trement House; gone to the vil lage of St. Louis. Isew York, June" 26th." "Several parties in the St. Louis Postofflce are looking for Tom and-Jerry. St. Louis, Juue 30th." "Swindled everybody and left the burg. Chicago, June 29th." " Not in Los Angeles; said to be speculating in corner lots in San Diego. Los Angeles, July 11th." From here the card was forwarded to San Diego, and thence we suppose it will in time find its way back to the New York Postofflce, after making its curious journey over the length and breadth of the United States.

Tulare Items. From the Delta of July 9. The celebration of our natal day passed off here in Visalia in very good order. A large procession marched out to witness the breaking ground for railroad. We here of damage being done near town by stock owned here in the place. As the no-fence law is in full force, it would be well for the people to provide some range for their gentle Btock. The contract for grading the road bed and laying down the track of the Visalia road, was awarded to Daniel Spangler, for one thousand dollars per mile. The grading is going rapidly forward, the ties are on hand, and the iron will soon be delivered. It Is ex pected that by the 25th of August at furthest, the care will be running into Visalia.
