The Los Angeles and the Orizaba arrived yesterday from San Francisco. Their freight lists are published this morning. We are indebted to "Chips," the efficient messenger of Wells, Fargo & <!o's. Express, for late files of San Francisco papers. A little difficulty occurred in a store on Main street yesterday, wherein a merchant received a slap in the face for being so impudent as to ask a debtor for money. No arrests. We received a call yesterday from Mr. Horace P, Bachman of Logans port, Indiana, who is making a pleas ure trip through the State, and will visit in our city for about a week. A lady's shawl—black and red stripe —was lost on the corner of Commercial and Los Angeles streets, Thursday last. The finder will be liberally re warded by leaving the same at the Herald office. Another runaway and oc curred on upper Main street yesterday. When last seen the horses were draw ing a bee-line for the cemetery, di vested of almost every buckle and strap of harness. The Grange store is driving trade with a vim now-a-days. The first month's lusiness aggregated nearly six thousand dollars, and the patron age has been steadily on tbe increase from the commencement. A boy named Henriques Shore was arraigned before Justice Gray yester day for a grave oft'ense not often charged upon one of such tender years. He was remanded to fail until to-day, to await the Judge's decision. Sam Hellman has been authorized, as the agent of tho Howe Sewing Ma chine Company, to collect, receive and receipt for all money due the company in thin city, and also to draw bills of sale for machines. See notice. Rev. Dr. White, pastor of the Pres byterian Church, arrived in this city yesterday on the Orizaba. The usual services of this congregation wil! take place at Good Templar's Hall to-mor row, conducted by Rev. Mr. Egbert of San Francisco. The Southern California Post has been enlarged to thirty-two columns and has a typographical appearance not excelled by any paper in the city. This material improvement in the third issue argues well for the pros pects ofthe enterprise. Mr. Thos. A. Garey If ft for Rincon, San Bernardino county, yesterday (o organize a new Grange at that place, making the third in San Bernardino county and the twentieth in this dis trict. lion. F. M. Houghton has been chosen temporary Master of the (Irange. The Water Company announces in a card, which will be found elsewhere, that in order to facilitate the erection of hydrants the water will be shut off in the whole city to-day between 3 and 4 p. M., and Monday aud Tuesday, the 17th and 18th, on Main street, at same hours. Afire occurred three miles south west of the city about 12 o'clock yes terday, in which a stack of baled hay belonging to John Beid, was entirely destroyed. The stack contained about ISO tons and was. valued at nine dol lars per ton. It will be a heavy lo"ss upon the owner. The origin of the tire is unknown. No other serious damage was done. A somewhat novel sight is presented occasionally by a little Miss Eva Brush, eleven years of age, who rides a yearling colt on the street not larjrer than a fair-sized Newfoundland. The young equestrienne disdains the use of a saddle, and rides in the primitive style, "bare-back," going with equal suavity over street or sidewalk, or even into the Postofflce without dis mounting. Mr. W. B. Caldwell, who left the city on the Gth of this month, with three teams and fifteen tons of freight for Prescott, returned last Thursday night. He reports a successful trip, but very warm weather. The trip out was made by the Ehrenburg and the return by Mohave route. Mr. Cald well thinks that the latter route is preferable for small teams, but it has many short turns which would incon venience large trains. A couple of gentlemen who were coming to the city yesterday, while driving through Los Nietos river, met with quite a serious as well as lu dicrous accident. While in the mid dle of the stream the horses broke loose from the vehicle, and leaving it with its occupants, started for parts unknown. One of the gentlemen was compelled to wade out and hire an other team to extricate his buggy from its *<ar« quo. The runaway team had not been recovered up to last night. We were in error yesterday in stat ing that the dangerous place on Alien street, where teams are liable to be mired, ia in front of Mr. Beaudry's water-works. The slough in question is south of Mr. Beaudry's works, and in ,/ront of the property of Clario Ybarra. Mr. Beaudry has filled up the street iv front of his place, at his own expense, making a solid and passable road. The improvements soon to be made by tho Council will remedy all the existing evils on the street wherever located. OUR SARATOGA. A <Jo««ipjr Letter from i» Hew Cor res p-in.ienf, ■■ 1,011 I.on In " -The Orig inal Onrden or Eden — Those " Hor rlil Jlcn" from l.on Angele*—'-Zoe Zelln" Gone from the r.cnrli Thing* In General. Editor Herald: Zoo Zclla, Dum uorix, Corry Es Pondent, Right Away, ami a number of oth ers whose names we cannot pretend to fathom or enumerate, have written and re-written up our fair little watering place, until perhaps it may seem a vain endeavor for us to attempt anything further on the theme; hut love, real love, for the spot where we have whiled away so many hours that would otherwise have passed in weariness and etmui, pleads with us to cast our mite into the vast fountain of letter writing. Yesterday, while lying upon the white, glistening shores that stretch long miles away and finally fade from the sight, lost in tho boundless ex panse of water, we could not but think that indeed there might per haps be some truth In the idea that somewhere among our verdant hills and lovely vales lifo first came, and that on some spot familiar to our eye dwelt our first parents. But highly imaginary as this may be, Santa Mon ica is to us AN EDEN, As fine and fresh as the hour it stood complete from the hands of its Crea tor. I'erhap ■ ■>.. whose every mo ment is abfl rbc 1 with the responsi bilities of >usii ess, would ask us how we contrive to pass so many idle days pleasantly. Well, our days are not idle ones; and if they were, we venture to assert that the mere re membrance of the fact that before us stretched the grand old ocean and around us the much-loved caflon, would alone make them pleasant. Then we are quite a literary set down here, and the authors are consulted not a little. We have a poet with us (once a week, at least), and even the immaculate " Zoe " herself gives us a kindly word now and then to keep ua light-hearted and free. By-the-by, have your ever seen "Zoe?" No? Well, let me tell you something, then. You don't know anything about her, notwithstanding Dumnorix's half dozen futile attempts to immortalize himself by giving a description. She is a sweet little woman, with her large brown eyes and curling, black hair, and after one view of her not even Dumnorix himself could con vince you that " Zoe " is a SKELETON IN THE CLOSET. For our part we are delighted tbat there, is yet left some one with suffi cient force of character and strength of will, to say that black is black and white is white, even though the in jured innocents down here (whose ex tremely primitiVe'eonduct is really the only blemish upon Santa Monica) do condemn her an 1 tbreaten fight. Day after day come the papers from your city, and almost as many times do we find reports in them of hood lumlem, disgraceful conduct, etc., rel ative to Santa Monica. Now if there is one hoodlum amongst us, we should like to know it, and we warrant that this community would unanimously vote a earn of tbanks, may be in a tangible manner, to tho informer. The secret of it is, that on Sundays alone is there the least appearance of rowdy ism,and we argue that it is pretty fair to say, inhospitable as it may ap pear, tbat our visitors themselves are the hoodlums, if indeed there can any be found. We do not propose to "pull" this, our home, for its many attrac tions render that quite unnecessary, but we do ask visitors and callers to let us alone, and if they cannot do it physically, why, then, mentally and morally. Some week or ten days ago, two gentlemen (?) came down from your city to see how we could enter tain, I suppose, and finding us rather TOO QUIET AND SPIRITLESS To suit their depraved tastes, walked into a neighboring tent, and insulted the occupant. The quarrel not coming that they had anticipated, they had recourse to the cowardly act of dis paraging his parents. Now, you touch a California boy upon the question of father's or mother's honor, and you find yourself in a hot nest, and this case proved no exception. It is per fectly true that a revolver was drawn, but iv a worthy cause, and we honor and respect him who had tho manly courage to defend a parent's name. We only hope that the blonde and brunette'will not be foolhardy enough to make a second attack upon one who has shown himself fully able to resent an insult, even though a revolver does have to be brought in as assistant. Our friends down at THE DOUBLE CLIFF HOUSE Have deserted us. You know we are all interested in that mansion, for on dit "Zoe" lived there, and she had two fair companions with her, whose mischievous pranks ' never ceased ; "but they are good girls, both of them," and we upon the hill walk to and from the beach alone, and sigh for a glimpse of their bright, merry faces. Close your schools up there, and send them to us again. We give you our solemn word to meet them at the Half-Way House with our drove of burros. Could they ask any more ? Last Sunday, to escape the crowd and confusion that invariably attends us on that day, we, in company with a party of congenial spirits, left the tents and clambered our way up the precipitous path that leads to the cliff ABOVE THE CANYON. But after our walk was ended, the view repaid us. We paused. Which was most beautiful, the bright bril liant hue of the water before us, the delicate tint of the heavens above us, or the bold, rugged mountains, to which "distance lent enchantment ?" Truly, nature has been bountiful in her gifts to us, and we have naught of which to complain. Just then the "couple of girls" pointed out Cata lina to us, and the picture was com plete. About six miles from here is Will Tell's Seashore Retreat, ami it is not seldom that we turn our horses' heads in that direction, and after a delight ful canter down the beach find our selves in close proximity to lake and boats; yet not even a pull up tbat ex quisite stretch of water, Tell's Lake, could convince us that there is any spot like unto our Santa Monica. But the watch ticking in our vest pocket reminds us that If we contemplate j< ining that fishing excursion to-mor row, It is time to he on our way to the land of dreams. If you are not too much afraid of putting your dear life in danger, pay us a visit up hero at Hillside Villa, and we promise you a hearty welcome and something to refresh the inner man. With kindest wishes for you, poor mortals who are missing the fun, we hope we may be, yours, Lou. Lewi.**. Santa Monica, August 11, 1874. Stabbing Affray. About 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon another bloody affray occurred on Ol vera street, north of the plaza, which resulted in the death of a man whose name is not known. The particulars of the affair, as near as we could gather them, are as follows: Frank Edwards, the man who did the stab bing, lives in a small room on Olvera 9treet, with a woman named Maria Los Angeles Alvisa. He came home yesterday afternoon, and finding the unknown man in hie room, ordered him out. The man left for the time, but soon returned with a companion and commenced making a disturb ance. Both parties set upon Edwards, beat him and tore his shirt entirely from his body. At this juncture, Ed wards drew a knife and stabbed one of his assailants, inflicting a deep wound in the left breast. The wounded man ran out of the room, up the street in a southerly direction and turning into the house of one Juan Trellis, fell dead. The other man also fled and succeeded in making his escape. Ed wards was promptly arrested and lodged in jail. Another man, named James Wallace, who was a witness to the transaction, was also taken into custody. Edwards is a young man, perhaps twenty-five years of age, and of ex ceedingly low propensities, as would seem by his manner of life. He is described as a "bummer," and does not claim for himself any particular means of livelihood, though he has worked in a livery stable some. The man who was killed was some what older —probably twenty-eight or thirty. His name wo have failed to learn, after the most diligent inquiry, but it is understood that he and his companion were both from the Monte. He wore a pair of fine boots, blue jeans pants, tucked inside of his boot tops, and a grey woolen shirt. The body was removed to the jail-yard and held for an inquest, which will proba bly take place this morning. About six o'clock we visited the pris oner in jail, and learned from him the facts of the case as wo have given them, corroborated by the statements of others. Edwards admitted that all of the parties engaged iv the fracas were under the effects of liquor, in cluding himself and the woman Al visa. His statements were somewhat confused, but appeared to be correct in the main. New developments will doubtless be made at the inquest. Later we learn that the man who was killed bore the name of Frank Tedrow, with an alias or two, and lived in Gospel Swamp. Tt is said that he had a bad reputation. In Memoriam.
