( 'apt. Barrows, whose office is in the telegraph office building, has received a few of those wonderful ink-stands about which we have all heard so much. You may fill them with ink and turn them upside down, roll them over tho carpet and around the room uncorked, and never a drop of ink will escape. These curious inventions will prove of great value to those who have a iiorror of ink spots. It is not often that a fortune goes begging, but here is one or two want ing owners, according to a postal card which we have received, reading as follows: "Rolla Hudson and Louisa llolden, heirs of Furgerson Hudson; Tipton and Joseph Todd, heirs of Nancy Todd (formerly Dale) can learn something of interest to them, about an estate in which they are heirs, by addressing M. Dale, Weston, Mo., who is Administrator. Information solic ited from anyone." [For the HERALD.] TO "T." Of all Ihe frauds we over yet did *o<\ The greatest of them Is the poet "T." The muses may have nursed him, but be crew Not c'en a poetaster, nor a rhymer true. How often hns'he Muse been Writ to blush l!y til 111, whose thoughts resemble milk ami mush; Who oft invokes herto Inspire his verse, But naught avails; he grows from had to worse. Alas, poor Kea's!

Hud "T." but seen some egotistic youth Caught in tho folds of Fancy, then In sooth We might have spared him on that tatal day. But when we knew him, old and thin (?) and ftray, An I beard him praise his friend, the poet ••T.," We did not let him think we knew 'twashe. He thought himself us sharp as any brier, And wise and great as heart could desire. His egotistic thoughts had grownso tall. He did not even dream he'J have a " fall." Yet when we played the critic on the beach, Wo hardly thought our Idle words would reach, Or that two girls, Just out ofpnblic school. Could mike a poet act so like v foi 1. —A Couple of GtatA Santa Monica, August 1, 1871. Los Angeles City and County. From tlie Resources of California. Los Angeles county embraces one of tlie largest unbroken tracts of fer tile land in California. It has about 50,000 acres under cultivation. Its population is a little over 20,000. It contains tlie following towns: Los An jreles city, with a population of about 9,000; Anaheim, 1,500; Wilmington, 500; Han Gabriel, 200; El Monte, 100; Gallatin, 100; aud Spadra, Santa Ana, Westmiuster, Compton, San Fer nando, Florence, Tustin City and San Juan Capistrano, with about fifty each. Each of these places is a nu cleus of a rich farming country. EDUCATION. Her educational interests rank high er than any county in the State, simi larly located. -She has forty-one school districts outside of Los Angeles city, with forty-five teachers —in the city fifteen schools, making sixty public schools in the county, besides the Wil son College at Wilmington and the Los Nietes College. There are few se lect schools in tlie city and county of Los Angeles, which speaks well* for her public school system. The school tax levy for 1874 is thirty cents on the $100. The average price paid to fe male teachers is seventy dollars per month, only two teaching for fifty dollars. The average price paid to male teachers is ninety-five dollars; the lowest is seventy dollars, and the highest is the salary of Dr. W. T. Lucky, the very efficient City Super intendent and Principal of the city High School, $2,500 per year; the next two highest receiving $125 per month each. The county schools are spoken highly of by the County Superintend ent, Dr. Pock, a live Yankee, fully up to tiie times in educational matters. There are eight school houses in the county which cost from $1,000 to $1, --200, three which cost $2,000 to $3,000, and six which cost over $3,000 each. The last named ure in the city. Tlie High School building, occupying an eminence entirely overlooking tlie city and its beautiful surroundings, with the furniture, cost $25,000, and the lot is valued at $15,000, making this one school property worth $40,000. We have seldom found better organized and more ably managed public schools than the Los Angeles city schools. In the city are seven church organiza tions, five church edifices, and two soon to be erected, a public library and reading room. Eight new public school buildings will be erected in this county the present year. AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES. All the agricultural products grown on this coast, can be produced in this county in great luxuriance, including Indian corn, a fact worthy of notice, as many portions of this coast are not adopted to the production of this great staph; of the central part of the United States. One hundred and twenty bushels to the acre, on whole fields, have been produced here, throwing into the shade the best bottom lands of the Mississippi valley. This county contains 200,000 acres of corn land, needing Very little irrigation, and 300,000 acres suitable for raising semi tropical fruits. Much of this land can be irrigated from flowing streams, tlie rest by surface wells. The boring of artesian wells is a great success all through the county, striking water at eighty to one hundred and forty feet, except in the city, where, strange to say, it is a failure; but the city is well supplied with excellent water from the Los Angeles river, the supply of which is almost inexhaustable. Many of the vineyards and much of the best producing iands do not need irrigation at all. This county is the great orange bearing section of the United States. No more beautiful panoramic view is is to be found, than from the hills im mediately back and adjoining the city, with the town immediately at your feet and the orange orchards and vine yards, with many varieties of the semi-tropical fruits sprinkled in, stretching for miles before, while the vision is lost gazing upon the grain fields and herds ou the grazing iands beyond. The culture of cotton, alw of coffee, has been successfully tested in this couuty. Further develop ments are called for, and many varie ties of manufactories are demanded, as the water power is immense. The ramie plant is a success here, and no portion of tho State produces beets better than this. Many hundred thousand dollars can be profitably in vested here in a beet sugarie, a paper mill, cotton and woolen mills, the manufacture of willow ware, tho ramie, a jute factory, etc. Within twenty miles of Los Ange les city, in the mountains, and quite easy of access, is a large belt of tnigar pine timber, with trees six or eight feet in diameter, waiting for au in vestment of capital to be developed. This is of inestimable value in this comparatively timberless section of the State. The undeveloped mineral resources of this county are of no inconsiderable importance, and when connection is made with the transcontinental rail road and a railroad is built to the Cerro Gordo and Inyo county mines, an investment hero in reduction and refining works will pay largely. There is one petroleum refinery established here now, aud paying well. CLIMATE. The following table will speak for itself, and say more in a small space than we can find language to express, showing the highest, lowest and mean temperature in Los Angeles city for 1873. The table is compiled from ob servations taken by J. W. Brodrick at 8 A. X r 12 M.. 3 P. M. and 8 P. M. of each day of tlie year 1870: ~„.,, Highest. Lowest. Mean. .Month. UWf , dee.s.

This is an unusual amount. The average rain fall is about thirteen inches per year. In London, England, there are about sixty unclouded days; in New York, 100; at Los Angeles, 240. The city is located twelve miles nt the nearest point from the ocean, just far enoufrh to have the ocean winds mod ified, for health and comfort. COURT CALENDAR. District 4'anrt.— sriTi.VEDA, J.
