The audience was quite small, we regret to say, and showed a lamentable Jack, of interest in tho cause on the part of our citizens. Certainly the meagre attendance can net be considered in any uncompli mentary sense toward the lecturer, for he stands high in the estimation of the people throughout tho State, and not less so In Los Angeles than else where. The Doctor has the advantage of being both earnest and candid —car- dinal virtues, when taken together, often lacking in temperance lecturers, ROCS into no ectacies of tragedy on the subject, lias noth ing to do witii hyperbole, but talks plainly and reasonably. At tho same time be takes no middle expound in the matter, but advocates temperance first, last, and all the i ime. He will talk to the children at i iood Templar's Hall to-morrow after noon at 4 o'clock. We trust that there Will bo a full attendance of young and oh!, for Ids lecture will bo equally In tel est ing to both. Vivian. V.'.ere wa3 not a spare seat to be had In Morced Theatre last Right. Much to their credit, our citizens rallied finely to give this talented gentleman n reception worthy of his merits. Concerning%he performance, we can I nly sjy that it was up to Vivlau's high standard; abounding in melody, humor and vfit, but polished through -out, There were no crudities iutro d'ccih to jar against the sensibilities C ft iy one. Madamo Muse? presided at the piano with much grace, adding !ly to the pleasure of the evening b; her melodious touches. Mad ame J. ReitTarth has a lino vi ice well cultivated, end her songs and bu,llad3 were received with hearty cn tores.

Wo here present the decision of the Register and Receiver of tho U. S. Land CKTice in tho of Eftston & Davis, under the Act of ISG6. This decision contains some new points of law which have never before been presented and will bo of interest to many: t T . 8. Land Office* i Los Angeles, July 29, 1874. / Hon. S. S. Burdett, Commissioner General. Land Oilioe, Washington, D. C: Xm —We herewith transmit the tes timony, with our joint opinion there* on, in the matter of .the application of Fusion and-Davis under the provis ions of tho Act of July 23. 1866, to pur chase cviiuiu lauds rejected from the dnal survey ofthe Pileblo tie Los An geles. The application was tiled in this ofdee on the 18th day of January, 1872, and the trial of the case commenced o:i the Bth day of May, 1874, and con cluded on the llth day of the Same month. It Is stipulated by counsel in the case of Bertrandßiviere; applicant to purchase under Act of lSi<i certain city donation lots of the city of Los Angeles,that the tract of land of which the said tract applied for forms a part, was rejected by the Board of U. S. Land Commissioners on the sth day of February, 1851; and that said stip ulation shall bo regarded as evidence in t his case. Tlie survey of the.southern bound pry of the lands of the city of Los Angeles was made in ISoS, and the plat of township 2 S., R. 13 west, 8. B. M., was filed on the 22d day of April, It appears from a diagram attached to-una forming- a part of'the said up* plication, that the tract applied for ; s located in the W. J of section 15, township 2 S.. range 13 W., San Bor nardiuo Meridian. It also appears from said diagram and from tho testi mony that the house and much of the improvements of said applicants Mere on the N.W. Jot" said section, which Henry Hancock, as counsel for said applicants) abandoned at the com mencement of eaid hearing, and the testimony of George Hansen shows that he made a survey of the caid lots, and that all of lot 4 aud more than half of lot 5, is in the N. W. |, abandoned as afore* said, leaving only about thirteen or fourteen acres as the claim of the ap plicant. Tbe testimony shows that Easton and Davis, as partners and tenants in common, occupied and resided on the said lots from the date of their pur chase up to 1857, When they leased the same for a p riod of two or three yeais, when it was wholly abandoned. It therefore appears that from about the year loiui up to the date of the pas sage of said Act, and even up to the present time, the suid applicants have not beeil In the possession of said tract, nor have they cultivated or im proved the s:ime. It is shown by the records of this oflice that Andres "Reyes tiled his D. 8. No. 312 Nov. 27, 11*71, for the S. W. J of said Sec. 15 —alleging settlement in c. 1, 1800, an I that on the 26th Oct, D 7:2, he made cash entry No, 91 of ; aid tract. There is uo evidence show* ing that applicants ever objected to the adverse occupation of said tract, by the said Reyes, or to his final entry thereof; wherefore applicants are now estopped from setting up a legal right thereto. Actual possession, cultivation and improvement are among the condi tions imposed by the 7lh Section of said Actoi' July 28 1 1860, and it Is in cumbent upon poisons seeking relief thereunder to show affirmatively that they or their grantors have remained in the-actual possession of the tract applied for, from the date of the origi nal purchase thereof at least up to the date of Ihe passage of the Act, aud as we believe from the date of purchase up to the determination of. the matter oi the application. Applicants have failed to show that they so ra.ininrd in the actual posses* slou of the said tract up to the date of the passage of said Act—having been out of possession thereof,and not hav ing used or improved the same for at least six years previous thereto, as ap pears by the testimony of one of the applicants, Said application should therefore be denied. Very Respectfully, AhFfIKD Jame?, Register. J. W. lIAVEitSTiCK, Receiver. LETTERS FROM NIETOS y::e I.oca: Election—More Com plete itejios-t—other Items—Letter* frota " «n.l '-T." | Nietoo Station, August 7, IS7I. I Eoiioit :—Tho Local Op ) lion eieotion passed off quietly here j yesterday. " License " had a majority of 21, out of 217 votes polled. The vote was larger than was expected. At the c^"-™ 1 election last year, about 25J votes were- polled. It was generally conceded before the election that this precinct would be carried by the »utl*lloenae, party by a small ma jority. Both parties worked diligent ly during the election. Whatever in terest tho ladies felt in ll3(i result was not manifested during the day by :heir appearance on tho ground, or their cudcavors to influence the re mit in any especial manner. A small :la-s favor liccnso becrmsr; they live by it: a little larger class aro in favor of.lt because they do not think any permanent goo.J would result from dosing, or attempting to 'dose, the saloons; and still a larger clas«, be cause they are constant pairons of the saloon-keepers. The law governing dettloni is an excellent one, especial ly iv requiring saloons to be closed while an election is in progress, and in requiring a uniformity in tickets. The saloons hero yesterday were promptly closed, and remained so un til the election was over. Owing t<> tin oversight, it is supposed, the tick* •ts were not exactly uniform; howev •r, a fair expression of the sentiments of tho people was had, which Is What the law aims to get at. Though not strictly legal, it is presumed there* tult' Will bo acquiesced in, and noth ing more be beard from Local Option in this township. P. Xnrios, August 7. Hands aro working on the streets around the depot and surveyors arc locating ditches to carry surplus water off next Winter. Business is increas ing, and building going on. Mr. Murks' storehouse is about completed and he will be receiving grain in a lew days. Mr. Rose hasJUSt received a line thresher* He is now threshing a large crop of gram, and we will soon see work around the depot utrain. The election passed oil' quietly—no Sallle Harts' out. The vote In Silver pre cinct stands 117 for license and OS against. Have not heard from Old Los Nietos. It is thought that the vote w ill be three to one for license. Th>' Local Option party say tiny will contest the election on the ground that the tickets used were not tiie size required by law. The Board of Elec tion refused to entertain their applica tion to contest, because it was made alter the returns were sealed and tbe Roard adjourned. The matter will probably come up before the Roard of Supervisors. T. COMrTON. In Compton, fifty-four votes were cast; two for license and fifty-two against, thus carrying the town for Local Option quite as effectually as the others were Carried against it. Further reports from Wilmington do not alter our returns as given yester day. The place is carried by a large majority in favor of license. Through out tbe election seems to have been very orderly and an unusually large vote has beenjxilled. Santa Barbara College. From the san.a itarbara Prats. The new term of the Santa Barbara College began to-day (Monday) under the most favorable auspices. The number of new students that bad been entered up to noon Wus fifteen, and it was expected that other names would be added to the list. The whole num ber of students was seventy-six. The following are the namesof ihe faculty, etc.: Principal, Prof. F. V. Hopkins; Vice-Principal, Miss E. C. Hatch; teachers, Prof. Julius L. Toraliuson, Prof. 11. Newmttyer, Prof. Regeustein, Miss J. Lludley, Miss Emma C. Smith; housekeeper, Miss M. L. Parsons. Prof. NewmayerwiH have charge of the department of hftisio and dancing, lie wusengaged for live consecutive years in tbe Royal Opera at Vienna, and is eminent In bis profession. It is evident that the Board of Trustees have spared no pains In their efJbrts to place the college on an equal foot ing with any, similarly situated, in the State, ami the success of those efforts is shown by the selection of an excel lent board of instructors. Tulare items. From the Delta of Aug. 0. Work is progressing rapidly on the Visaiia road. The cars now run to within about three miles of town. The depot is being rapidly pushed forward and the Whole thing will be in work ing order this mouth. R. E. Hyde, E. Jacob, S. Sweet, J. W. Crowley and L. Gugaynheim have united for the purpose of building a first-class warehouse in this place. The building is to be of brick, fifty by one bundled and twenty feet, twenty feet high, and tilted lor ihe storage of eight thousand tons of wheat. Several cattle have died In this place during the last week, as is sup posed from the effects of poison. It is likely that the cattle obtained access to some one's enclosure, where p'dson has been used for killing squir:elj or some like purpose. Wilmington Items. From the Enterprise of Ai«u»l o. The Fall term of the Wilmington public school will commence next .Monday, August Oth. Dark-eyed maidens mounted on fly ing steeds daily enliven the town of Wilmington, The next session of Wilmington Col- Icge will begin on Tuesday, August 18th, under the Presidency of Rew a. M. Campbell, of Los Angeles, lie will i>e assisted by faithful, Competent teachers. Mr. (J. is a thorough worker, and we look for good results from his management. Quite a party arc roughing it over at Cataljna island. Fishing, bunting wild fronts, bathing, and simply lying around luxuriating tire items in the daily programme. No doubt that is one' of the healthiest places in the world. No one was ever known to spend a few days there without deriv ing substantial benefit fr »m the visit. Some visitors and home folks have been bathing down on tbe beach. This is the way they doit. A stake la driven into the ground and a rope attached; a timid maiden seizes hold of it, and a pair of dainty feet go tripping over the gaild toward the surf, when the waves roll up about four inches high and tbe incipient mermaid falls down an 1 screams for help. The men make a gallant rush for the rescue, but before they react) the jeopardised bather she is lying high and dry on the beach, waving her pedal extremities .at va cancy. COURT REPORTS.
