CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
TUESDAY JULY 21, 1574. LOCAL BREVITIES. O. W. Morgan nfill has money to loun. * There is a mammolh bear - trap waiting at tho depot for somebody. The sent nee of Wiley MeNai r was postponed yesterday until Friday nt l p. m., to await the determination of a motion for a new trial. Mr. Win. Temple has returned to the city from the Bast, where he has Just completed a course of study to lit himself for a limb of the law. Dr. Howard extends an invitation to all who are interested in the cultiva tion of tobacco, to be present at tlie Agricultural Association's grounds on Thursday afternoon. Our evening CO temporary learns that th" Duarte country looks splen did. Tbe hay crop Is Immense, and a great crop of barley has been rsised, and it is selling there at 85 cents. Professor Denton delivers his last lecture to-night, at Grange Hall. Pet as many as possible turn OUt to h ar this distinguished lecturer on the "Age of Man, or the A.dvenl of Hu manity on Our Planet." Mr. M. Madigan left by the Ori/.aba yesterday for San Francisco on a business trip. He goes to look Up tbe archives in relation to ranches in Los Angeles county, and also some records belonging to the city. Chambers, the man who was at tacked at the Monte the other day and beaten over the head with a chair by Lawton, is now insane. Steps are being taken to send the unfortunate man to the Insane Asylum. The ease of Corona, the accomplice of Vasquez, was called in the County Court yesterday, but postponed until Friday next. Vasquez has made his deposition so far as relates to this case and his evidence will be submitted at the trial. Mr. Edwards, of the firm of Ed- Wards & lion", ltas gone to San Fran cisco to replenish the stock of their establishment. Business has been lively at the Capital store since its opening, and hence this repurchase of tvoods lias been made necessary. An "anxious inquirer wants to know whether our local is any rela tion to the glue man—he looked so glue-my the other day. Our answer is, No; but he knows the fool-killer like a book, and if somebody don't look out there'll be an anxious in quirer dead before long. S. If. Mott having resigned the at'oncy of tbe Imperial insurance Company, of London, John Carl in lias been appointed agent, eriviny him the strongest fire agency in the State; con sisting of the Imperial, of London; Queen's, of Liverpool; Northern, of London and Aberdeen, and the old Hartford, of Connecticut. Messrs. Fisher & Thatcher have made a valuable addition to their force of workmen by securing tho as sistance of a diamond setter and an other practical watchmaker. The growing demands of their business nave made this increase of assistants cecessary, and they will now be able to keep up with their orders. Among the passengers from San Francisco who arrived yesterday per steamer Constantino, was J. J. War ner, who lias been appointed Register in Bankruptcy for the Fourth Con cessional District, by Judge Hoffman, ofthe United States District Court, in which he took the oath of office ami qualified by giving tl»e required bond. The Castac Water Ditch and Placer Mining Company organized on the llth inst., and yesterday elected the following oHicer»: President, It M. Williams; Treasurer, J. M. Elliott; Secretary, B. L. Peel; Superintendent, A. M. Sharrocks. The company own four hundred and fifty acres of mining ground on the head of the Santa Clara j i ver, in this county. A dispute and high words were raised on Spring street yesterday af te 'ii mil between a big little man and a little small man. The larger at tempted to choke the smaller and the i small man drew a revolver. The di.sputp was settled by the intervon -1 ioii of Constable Haire, and the man who !>:oiliieed the weapon was march ed oil' to pay his line. Antonio Mallachowitz called at our offlee yesterday, and in the height of good humor informed us that his spouse hail presented him with a son. This heeounted particularly fortunate, inasmuch as seventeen years have elapsed since the oirth of their last child. The happy result was brought about by herbs raised by the la ly iv her garden; so it is said. Wo had a call from Mr. George Wright from Azusa, yesterday. Be is engaged in the bee interest. His apiary is not very large, consisting of one hundred and fifty stands. He thinks they will yield him this year nearly one hundred pounds each. He brings into this market the best qual ity of honey, Ho reports everything prosperous in his vicinity—crops good and farmers happy. The circus drew another large crowd last night for their concluding per formance in the city for tho present. The efforts of the company were fully as successful as on the previous occa sions, and tho audience went away v\'!s'.ii."g for more, like Oliver Twist. Tlie troupe will revisit the city one week from to-morrow, at which time i hey will give a benefit for tho fire company. Dr. M. S. Jones, who gives special attention to diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat in this city, spends Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at Anaheim in general practice with Dr. Hardin, and is here on Saturdays, Sundays and Mon days to attend his special cases. Meanwhile persons wishing his at tention in any of these special dis eases may have him summoned here at any time by leaving orders with Dr. McKee at his office No. 1 Spring street, up stairs. There was an uncommonly lively rumpus on the corner of Main and Marehessault streets in Sonora last Sunday night. A Frenchman named Blanco grew demonstrative and made war upon his companions. He suc ceeded In embellishing the counten ances of two with good effect and knocked an allopathic dose of teeth down the throat of a third, when offi cers Harris, Thomas and Bilderraiu made their appearance and endeav ored to command peace. The officers Mvre resisted by the crowd and for a lime there was danger of a serious .conflict, but the officer-.' revolvers which they were compelled to draw, had the required persuasive force, and four of the rioUr> were marched off" to the calaboose. Map showing the geographical and commercial position of Los Angeles; tho system of Trans (iontloental Ilnilroads on the Pa cific (.'oast; the Impassable ranges of mountains parallel to the coast north and south of San Oorgonio Pass—the only natural pass in tho mountains from Lower California to oregon ; showing also the largest and richest mining region in the world tributary to Los Angeles; showing the proj>osed railroads to the rich mines of Cerro (rOrdO and to Salt Lake; also the thirty fifth and thirty-second parallel routes and their junction at Al* biKpierque, 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, 800; Fl Monte, 100; Spadra, r>o; Gal latin, KM); Santa Ana, 50; West minster. 60j Compton, > r >o; San Fernando, 50; Florence, 50; Tus tin City, 50. These are each the nucleus of 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. Important Mining Operation. We are in receipt of the prospectus of the Potosi Mining and Smelting Company of Cerro Gordo.an incorpora tion formed for developing the mining interests in that district. The imme diate object of tlie company is to run a tunnel into the west side of the Cerro C-ordo mountain, cutting the entire system of mines that have heretofore been worked or that may be discovered during its construction. The tunnel is desigued to lie nine feet in width, eight feet in height, and 4,400 feet in length, cutting tlie Igna cio mine at 210 feet below the surface, the Alpha at 240 feet, the San Benito at 4.12 feet, the First Lead Mine at 570 feet, the Second Lead Mine at 008 feet, tlte Santa Maria at SIG feet, tlie Union and Jefferson at 1,044 feet, the Buena Vista at 2,140 feet below the outcrop. It will contain a double railroad track and its primary design will be to fur nish a meansof egress for the mines which it intersects, besides giving them a better ventilation and increased supply of water. It is also expected that blind lodes will be developed in its construction that will furnish no in considerable profit to the company. The principal revenue of the Potosi tunnel will be the transportation of ores from the company's own mines to their reduction works; and also of ores from tlie mines already opened on the proposed line, for which will be charged one dollar per ton. This source of revenue is almost unlimited, as the mines are inexhaustible, it is estimated that the receipts for water cannot be less than $50 per day. The total cost of the tunnel will be about $100,000. The capital stock of the company is $5,000,000, divided into fifty thousand shares of $100 each. The property of the company consists ofthe Potosi Tunnel, and Tunnel Site, located in February, 1871; the Alpha Tunnel, and Tunnel Site, and the Al pha, Franklin, ami Omega Silver Lodes, located in 1868, When the i'oliisi Tunnel is completed, the pros pectus estimates the net profit to the company, from mining alone, at 5109, --200 per month. In concluding, the report says: The Potosi Mining and Smelting Company oilers one of the safest investments, for the amount of proposed cost, that can possibly be offered. Tlie tunnel will cut several of the most extensive and valuable mines in the world, at a depth varying from 300 to 2,200 feet below the outcrop, and will form the cheapest possible outlet for these ores. The company's mine heretofore men tioned can immediately be placed on a paying basis. The entire works will cost as above $97,009 20, or in round numbers $100,000. They can be com pleted within two years, and when complete, cannot fail to produce a very large revenue for generations. This is perhaps the most important mining operation which lias ever been projected in Southern California, and its successful accomplishment/, which seems well assured, will greatly promote the interests of our section, The Cerro Gordo mines have almost an exhaustless supply of richly pay ing ore. Hitherto the system of oper ating these mines lias been the most primitive in character, the hoisting from many of the shafts being done entirely by manual labor. With the increased facilities for mining which this new project will inaugurate, and the cheap and rapid transportation which will be supplied by the con struction of tbe Los Angeles and Inde pendence Railroad, we may expect tlie products ofthe Cerro Gordo mines to double and treble within tlie next three years. Professor Denton's Fifth Lecture. Tho attendance last night at Prof. Denton's lecture was considerably bet tor than that ofthe previous evening, there being more ladies present, we think, than at any former lecture. The Professor began by saying that al though the granite formation is the oldest, we have granite of recent form ation—it is forming now. The meta morphie formations go hack long be fore the period of animal life, yet there were metamorphic rocks formed long after animals existed. No place on earth contains all tlie formations shown on the chart. Neither are they found now lying in the order named. The chart represents them in the order in which they were formed. In the changes that havo taken place it is proven that eleven thousand feet of rocks have been worn oil' in places— tlie highest mountains have been worn down to plains. These remarks are necessary and introductory to my lec ture to-night, which is the tertiary period, or the age of mammals. There are eleven orders of these. First, two handed mamma s — man the repre sentative; second, four-hand mam mals—monkeys the representatives; third, insect devoureis—tlie hedgehog; fifth, the carniveran—the cat and dog; sixth, the cretaca, the whale, por poise, etc.; seventh, the pachyder niatas, elephants, etc.; eighth, the buminanchi, ox. sheep, etc.; ninth, MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY. Rodentine, gnawing animals, squir rels, etc.; tenth, edentator, animals of no teeth; eleventh, marsupulia, Douched animals. He then spoke of the difference of families, genii and species In treating of mammals, and dwelt upon them at length. He pointed tint the tertiary formations in various parts of the earth. We find these fossil animals in this formation. The serpent appears for the first time hero. Scientists knew but little until recently of this period. Comparative anatomy lias come to the aid of the scientist to bring into form and re store to their original shape the mil lions of bones found belonging to this period, although differing so materi ally from those wf their age. The Pa cific coast was all under water then; first the Sierras rose and the eastern part of this State, while the western part of California was still under water. Four hundred species of fossil remains have been found in one bed in Alabama. Tropical fruits have been found in New England showing that this locality must have been as warm then as in Southern Florida at that time. Only six per cent, of modern shells are found iv the first tertiary formation, forty percent, in the middle and from seventy to ninety percent, in tlie last or highest. He dwelt upon the interesting country we inhabit, and dwelt upon the impor tance of a knowledge of geology to us and our children. Some ofthe South ern States, Colorado, Nebraska, and other portions of our country contain immense quantities of these fossils. The number and forms, too, very great. Seventeen species of fossil horses have been found on this conti nent, differing from ours; yet not a horse existed in America when the Spanish came here. One of the most remarkable spots on earth is in Utah Territory, lie there found sixty or seventy fossil insects new to the geol ogist. Wheat and the rose is found iv this highest tertiary forma tion for the first time. The earth is evidently being prepared for man. Bight hundred species of insects are found iv ■Germany. Nin%ty-eighl dis tinct species of plants in northern Europe, which only now grow in trop ical clime. The mastodon, the largest animal known, lived in this age. He had tusks fourteen feet long, feet a yard long. His tail must have been'two feet in diameter at the body, and his thigh bone three times the size of the largest elephant. Tlie Professor here painted in fancy some of the terrible scenes that must have transpired on land and in the water by these terrible monsters, just as the Professor can iv his glowing manner. His next lecture to-night is, "The Age of Man, or the Advent of Hu manity." We hope the people of Los Angeles will give him a large audience on this, the last occasion which the learned gentleman will give us to lis ten to him on this interesting subject. Tho Grange Store. We clip the following from tho Mutual Aid for July, just issued. Tho statement comes from an official source, and may be relied upon as cor rect. It gives a more comprehensive idea of the status ofthe enterprise and its objects than we have yet presented to our readers: The Grange Co-operative Company has established its main store iv i.os Angeles, on Main street, between Sec ond and Third streets, and have com menced a strictly cash business. The trade starts out under favorable BUS* pices and averages at the rate of about $3,000(1 month. If a credit system were adopted this trade would be more than doubled, but goods could not be sold as low as they are at present. The capital of the Company at present is very limited and it is absolutely neces sary to adhere strictly to a cash trade. Experience will show the Company what it is best to do in the future. The General Manager now has on hand a full stock of groceries which are being sold to stockholders at from lv to 10 per cent, below the ordinary retail prices heretofore prevalent in this country. To persons who are not Stockholders, goods are being sold at prices much lower than those in vogue elsewhere. Thus far about one-half of tbe trade is to persons who are not stockholders anil both goods and pri ces give general satisfaction to all. The company regrets that it was unable to get in operation in time to furnish grain sacks for the grain crop in the south end of the county, but the officers have done their best to meet the wants and have the satisfac tion of knowing that they will be pre pared to meet any emergency another season. Notwithstanding this delay large quantities of sacks are being sold. Arrangements have been made by the General Manager for the shipment of grain aud farm produce. (Stock holders anil others should consult Mr. Seymour before disposing of their produce elsewhere. All kinds of farm implements will bo pur chased by tlie company for those giving it their orders,' stockhold ers receiving tlieir implements at as near as possible to wholesale prices. More capital is needed. There are hundreds of Gsjmgers yet in Eos An geles and San Bernardino counties who have not yet subscribed to the stock of the company) and they should do so at once so as to give the General Manager more funds with which to operate. There are also a few who have subscribed to the stock of tho company who have not as yet made their first payment of five dol lars per sbare and taken their stock. Such persons should respond at once and thus help tlie movement. A lunre amount of tho trade at the store is now with those who arc not stockholders. A large city trade will soon be built up which will furnish a good market for the farm products. The surplus products will besbipped to San Francisco so as not to allow the market hero to become glutted if pos sible. Joe Murphy Last Night. Tlie first of Murphy's series of en tertainments in Los Angeles met with a rousing response from our citizen's last night. Tho audience was the largest which we have ever seen in Turners' Hall, every available I pace being occupied. The proceeds from the house doubtless reached a thousand dollars. Tlie entertainment was what Murphy's playing always proves—immense. The minor char acters were all well sustained and cap ital hits were made throughout. If you want to laugh and laugh again and keep it up for two hours or more go and hear Murphy to-night. There is a telegram at the Telegraph Office for Wm. Denver, blacksmith. BORN.

This remarkable curative herbal preparation Is entirely unlike nnd greatly superior to any oilier recuperant ever dis covered. It Strengthens the living vital nervaurie principle, and gives energy to the muscles, nerves, filaments, membranes, and all tissues of Ihe internal organs. PIPIFAX — Keeps the skin in a supple condition; the cuticle pliant; the pores open; and brings the blood to the surface; thereby enabling the system lo counteract these bane fill atmospheric influences. PIPIFAX—Parses through the blood, car ries off by presplratlon and oilier excretions the effete and injurious materials ofthe body. It is soothing, alterative and del'urative. Used methodically and rationally, aided by suita ble diet, it produces most important changes in the system, contributing tt the reconstruc tion of tissues, and removes vitiated matter which has become not only useless but inju rious. No other article has ever been intro duced which combines in such nn exlraordi nary degree tho principles of an efficient anti bilious agent and tonic. Try it and be i ,n -vineed. m iv 29 3m—2o Ceo.
