T JESDA V JULY 28, 1874.
Castac Placer Mines.
Col. B. M. Williams has returned
from the Castac mines, where he went
last week with a force of hands and a
supply of tools and provisions for the
purpose of digging a ditch from Eliz
abeth Lake. He reports the road up
the cafiou much easier to make than
he expected. The hands at work on
it will make it a good wagon road to
the head of the ditch in a few days.
There are no hills and very little grad
ing on the banks. The camp is in a
beautiful grove, with a fine stream of
water running by it. The old mining
engineer had made a preliminary
survey of the ditch before Colonel
Williams left, and to the great de
light of the company he found the
ditch could be shortened nearly two
miles by crossing a ridge that the
company had thought was too high for
the fountain-head. It turns out that
they will have one hundred and forty
feet fall above the ridge. There is no
fear of failure now. This company
have the means and the energy to put
this enterprise through, and from all
accounts when the water is on these
rich mines it will be the best mining
interest south of Sau Francisco.
There are thousands of acres of low
foot hills upon which you cannot get
a pan of dirt that docs not yield from
two to sixty cents to the pan. When
the water is brought to these placers,
there will be thousands of miners set
at work. For thirty years the natives
have been packing earth from these
mines on donkeys several miles to
water. Hundreds of excavations re
main to show the ancient sign. An
acquaintance with the customs and
habits of the old Southern Californi
ans is necessary to explain the reason
this rich treasure ha<3 lain idle so long.
Another feature of some moment in
regard to the;e mines is: the Southern
Pacific Railroad can find a better
crossing and shorten their route to
San Francisco over thirty miles by
running their road up this cafion to
Elizabeth Lake.
"Municipal Purposes."
San Francisco is endeavoring to
avoid the puyment of tlie Spring Val
ley Water Company's bill, by proving
the constitutionality of the Ensign
Act. On the petition for a rehearing
of the case before the Supreme Court,
City and County Attorney Burnett
has filed a brief in which the act is de
fended as creating a corporation for
municipal purposes, and as a
general law conformi ng to the require
ments of the Constitution. The prop
osition sought to be proven is that the
laying down of water-pipes in the
public streets of a city and county,
city, or town, and tiie introduction of
water into the territorial limits of a
city and county, city, or town, for the
use of the inhabitants thereof, are mu
nicipal acts, and the means thereto
and the purposes thereof are munici
pal. In support of his position Mr.
Burnett quotes decisions from Mas
sachusetts, Alabama and Maryland re
ports. The sole argument is to estab
lish the two points, first, that the con
tract between Ensign and the city
was for municipal purposes, and sec
ond, that it was made under and in
conformity with the general law. In
no part of the brief is an attempt
made to maintain the constitutional
ity of special or exclusive franchise
legislation. Mr. BURNETT seems to
admit the soundness of the Supreme
Court decision on that very vital
point in the case, and relies solely on
the assumption that the corporation
was formed in accordance with tho
general law. The answer to Mr. Bur
nett's argument is short yet it com
pletely overturns every proposition
advanced. It is tin' -: If the Ensign
contract ivasoneof those corporations
that may be formed under the general
laws, why ivas a special Act thought
necessary to give it a legal existence'?
This is the sole point at issue, and it
is this alone on which the Court will
decide the case. All corporations cre
ated by special Act are unconstitu
tional, and when a corporation sets up
that it was formed under the general
law, it must show that its creation
WM in no mannerduetoa special Act.
Sheep Raising.
Quite recently, J. H. KTBKPATBICK
sold to our townsman, Spencer H.
Wilson*, thirty-one sheep of Spanish
Merino blood. The flock consists of
two rams and twenty-nine ewes. A
few days ago these sheep were sheared
and the following is the yield in wool:
The fleece of one ram weighed twenty
eight pounds—fifteen months' flip;
that of the other ram weighed twenty
six pounds and ten ounee9—same pe
riod of growth. The growth of the
ewe's fleece was fourteen months, and
the average weight of the twenty-nine
fleeces was sixteen pounds lour ounces.
The lightest weighed twelve pound*,
and tho heaviest twenty-one pounds
four ounces. These are extra fine
sheep, and we call attention to their
heavy yield of wool for the purpose of
showing tho advantages of growing
fine-blooded sheep over the common
stock. Leaving texture out of sight,
the fleece of one sheep like those of
Mr. Wilson will more than average
three taken from the backs of common
sheep. Ono of these Spanish Merino
sheep will consume no more food than
the Bheep that will shear but three or
four pounds of wool. ludecd, experi
enced xvoA growers tell us that it costs
more to feed a common sheep thau a
a Spanish Merino. In other words, it
takes about four times the amount of
grass to grow sixteen pounds of com
mon wool that it docs to produce that
number of pounds of Spanish Merino
wool. We presume all practical wool
growers are aware of these facts, but
they may be of interest to many about
to engage in the business, and there
fore we give them publicity.
Elsewhere we publish a short
note from our correspondent Mr. Mc-
Kxkiiit, in which he explains that
he possibly did the Herald and Santa
Barbara Pre** injustice in charging
them with over-estimating the many
advantages offered by Los Angeles
Valley to the farmer and fruit-grower.
We are pleased to see the gentleman
do himself this credit, and we are
pleased to know that he has come
lv re to remain. If he lives in this
part of tho State three months we
have no fear that he will write un
favorable reports concerninc the cli
mate and soil of Southern California.
The facts are all that need be stated
to prove this part of the State the
most desirable locality on the Pacific
Coast for those who desire cheap
and comfortable homes.
A WEEK or so ago we noticed an ad
vertisement In a Vlaalla paper, in
quiring for tho whereabouts of Miss
Mattie Graham, a young lady of
twelve or fourteen Summers, who iiad
disappeared from her father's man
sion. A later date from that village
contains the marriage of Miss Mat
tie to the youth of her choice, and
GRAHAM, pcre, will of course stop the
"information wanted" ad.
Ben Butler has published a letter
to prove that he never stole any
spoons. Letters from those who lost
the spoons exculpating Ben* from the
theft would be more acceptable evi
dence.
Mrs. Beecher says if all the wom
en in the world were to swear that
Beecher was unfaithful, she would
not believe it. Wonder if Mrs.
Beecher is not whistling by a grave
yard?
It turns out that Beecher's love
for the pretty sisters of his church is
merely platonic. We are glad to hear
this—platonic love is such a rare thing
nowadays.

LETTER FROM SAN FERNANDO.
The Oil Wells—Opinion of an Expert —
The Fruit Crop-Olive Culture.
Editor Herald: The reports from
the oil wells in the San Fernando
mountains are extremely favorable.
I yesterday saw a gentleman who
claims to have had a large experience
in the oil regions of Pennsylvania, he
having made the oil business his spe
cialty for a number of years. After
having been on a prospecting tour
here for two weeks, he says there arc
better indications here than he ever
saw in Pennsylvania. He also says
that if the wells at which the company
is now at work were in Pennsylvania,
they could easily sell their ground
FOB $500,000.
Quite n little pile, is it not? There
are quite a number of parties here
that are only waiting to be assured of
tlie success of the present company
before commencing operations. They
think the reports are too good to be
true. If they are all that parties who
have visited them claim, they will add
an immense source of revenue to
LOS ANGELES COUNTY,
As the market is unlimited—having
all the Pacific coast to supply, as well
as China.
There are also very favorable re
ports from the new gold mines.
Amongst the old settlers of this coun
ty the richness of these mines is no
new tiling, and one and all say that if
an adequate supply of water can be
obtained, they will yield an enormous
amount of wealth, and of that supply
they do not express a doubt but that
it can be obtained.
New comers in our town for the pur
pose of commencing business and
building themselves homes are con
stantly arriving, and others for
preparing their farming lands for work
iln- coming season.
THE GRAIN AND IIAY
Raised in the neighborhood the past
season is being hauled in at a lively
rate. Everyone is busy, and the pros
pect of a largo crop the coming season,
with an ordinary amount of rain, is
very flattering; that is, a large
breadth of land will be sown. People
are just being convinced of the adapt
ability of the soil of San Fernando
Valley, for raising not only the small
grains, but of tobacco and all the
semi-tropical fruits, as well as of its
tine soil for grapes—which is said to
produce an article of wine equal if not
better than tho famous Cucamonga.
Tbe two orchards at the Mission bid
fair to produce a very largo crop of
olives, which fruit, bye the bye, if
properly managed wdl be a great
source of wealth in future years to
those who judiciously care for them.
The olive and the viue, so far as my
observation extends in this county,
seem here to have found a genial
home. The culture of these fruits
also can never be overdone. We have
the whole world for customers for the
same, but they must not be cultivated
in a slovenly manner, but each must
strive to raise the best fruit. So it
may be said of all kinds of fruits, that
those of tine varieties will always And
a profitable market. Yours,
San Fernando.

New York, July 27.—The New York
Graphic publishes an outline of Mr.
Beecher's defense* He says that he
will admit that Mis. Tilton formed a
very strong, loving attachment for
him, anil he submitted to her bland*
isliments, but denies positively that
their intercourse was ever of a crim
inal character. Still it was such as
was calculated to alienate her from her
husband, and in that was committed
the wrong to Tilton fur which he
made the written apology.
Tilton Repents tho Dmc,
Ni'.w York, July 27.—The report of
Tilton's cross-examination occupies
nearly four newspaper columns, lie
gave the particulars of several acts
charged in the first statement of the
affair in the library. He says he
saw Beecher) while sitting oa the
Hour, and .Mrs. Tilton on a low stool,
put his bands under her clothes,
caress her ankles and lower limbs,and
afterwarrls she denied it, but finally
confessed, and said she had abided
Beecher. He declared he never said
his wife was pure as au angel, but for a
long time endeavored to conceal her
offenses from the public. Of the scene
In Tilton's bed-chamber, he Hays that
when Mrs. Tilton opened the door,
Beecher sat in an easy chair with his
vest unbuttoned and plashing as red
as a rose. Mrs. Tilton explained that
she wanted a quiet talk with Beecher,
and they locked themselves in the
chamber to avoid interruption by the
children. At the time he accepted the
statement as tme. She always in
sisted to him that she could sec no
wrong in her intimacy with Beecher.
She regarded him as nearly Jesus
Christ himself.
