The runaway dually turned up Court street aud made the entire circuit of the Court-house, overturning the ve hicle meanwhile and dragging it up side down. The animal was soon checked, however, and the damages both to himself, the harness and buggy, fpuud to be comparatively slight. A Few California Farms. Editok Herald :— Thinking a few statements and some figures concern ing some of the largo farming inter ests in the Stato may be interesting to some of your general readers, as well as to the farmers of this county, I will give you some data concerning the threo largo cultivators of Butte and Colusa counties. Their operations are on such a very large scale that con templated by the farmers of 40, 00, 100 and 100 acres the comparison seems bewildering—in fact, the idea of one man cultivating .18,000 acres in wheat would have appalled a Jefferson or a John Adams. Gen. John Bidwell planted 0,000 acres. The average yield will not be less than thirty bushels to the acre: 0,000 acres at 30 bushels each—lßo,ooo bushels; and at 00 lbs. each, 10,800,000 lbs. Gen. Bidwell has some lands that, for wheat growing, are probably un surpassed in any country. I have heard acknowledged judges declaim their belief that of the 0,000 acre plaut of this year, 1,000 can be selected that will yield sixty bushels to the acre. Granting this, the yield will be 210,000 bushels, or 12,000,000 pounds. This gentleman, whom I expect to greet as Governor of our State, frequently treats his guests to bread at a 6 o'clock p. M. dinner made from flour ground from wheat that stood as it grew in the fields when the sun arose on that day. David Reavis, Esq., another, and neighbor of Gen. Bidwell, whose lands are west of Chico and distant say two miles, planted 5,000 acres. Five thousand acres at thirty bushels each is 150,000 bushels, or 9,000,000 pounds; at thirteen cents each in San Francisco, with freight to delivery and to contain 130 pounds each, the sacks alone wi 11 cost $9,000. The Sacramento river separates Butte from Colusa county. Dr. — Glenn, of the latter, through himself and tenants, planted thirty-eight thousand acres. Average these at 20 bushels per acre, and find 700,000 bush els —at 00 pounds each is the enormous quantity of 45,000,000 pounds; rating which at 1J cents per pound, or 90 ets. per bushel, is the snug sum of $684,000. The small farmer, cultivating sixty acres of wheat, doing the most of the labor by himself and his family, has $1,620 in gross product at thirty bush els to the acre with a value of 1 \ cents per pound, or 90 cents per bushel. These estimates are fair for the ordi nary good lands of the Sacramento valley as to the yield per acre. The price—9o cents per bushel of sixty pounds—is less than any average com ing within my recollection. Respectfully, etc., s. L. Dewey. Los Angeles, August 16, 1874. Serious Runaway. A runaway, with quite serious results attending, occurred on Commercial and Los Angeles streets yesterday. It seems that Mr. Frankel, from Gal latin, was driving out with a single rig, accompanied by a niece of Mr. H. Newbauer and Miss Hauch. At the corner of Wilmington and Commer cial streets the horse became fright ened, and turning very sharply threw Mi - - Frankel from tho huyrgy. Tho animal clashed on up the street, bring ing the vehicle in collision with an awning on Commercial street,and then turning up Los Angeles, his fright was much increased by the screams of the young ladies in the buggy. A short distance from the corner of Commercial street, the buggy was overturned and both occupants pre cipitated upon the ground. Miss New bauer escaped without any serious in juries, but Miss Hauch received a kick upon one side of her head from the horse, and was otherwise badly bruised. Mr. Frankel in his fall sprained his ankle and received some slight bruises. The horse ran to Main street, where he was at last stopped, and upon examination found to be so badly injured that his owner was compelled to havo him shot. The buggy was not so badly shattered a3 could have been expected, after the wild race upon which it went. Altogether, the runaway was disastrous in its results, and it will prove doubly so should permanent in jury or fatal consequences result to the young lady who was so roughly handled. Castac Placer Mine. One of the hands from the Castac Mine came to the city yesterday. He reports the wagon road completed to the head of the ditch and the grade staked out over one mile, which puts the ditch high up on the side of the cafion, in good ground for ditching. The men are all in good health and spirits. This speaks well for the en terprise, when we consider that all the men are working for stock in the com pany in place of money. There seems to be a fair prospect that this mining enterprise will be a grand success and a great benefit to Southern California The Grand Jury was yesterday em paneled, with the following mem bers: T. P. Campbell, Foreman; F. Greenbaum, R. H. Gillman, Thomas Gillette, D. W. Field, W. R.Malcolm, Carlos Cruz, G. W. Dye, I. W. Lord, S. G. Greely, R. D. Curtis, John Baldy, Bernardo Guirardo. Seven prisoners were brought in by the Sheriff 1 , but no positive action was taken by the Grand Jury, as it was found that G. W. Dye, being quite deaf, was disqualified for the position of juror. The Jury then returned and reported the facts in the case to the Court, who postponed further action until tho opening of this morning's session, when a new venire will be or dered to fill the vacancy. Mendel Meyer, Stage Manager of the dramatic section, Turn-Verein So ciety, informs us that Miss Frauelein Meyer, a celebrated German actress, is in the city under contract with the Society to play a series of engage ments. The first of tho series will be given with a German play at the hall on next Sunday evening. Other plays, some English and some Ger man, will follow, as will be announced in a few days. We are glad to learn that our friends, Louis Pfeiffenberger and Henry Shaurer, have purchased tho Woolen Mill store, on Los Angeles street near Commercial, and will hereafter run that proper establishment on their own account. The stock will be con siderably enlarged, and will include both imported and domestic gqods in large variety. Goods made up to or der in tho latest style. See notice. Three Novel Foundlings. On Sunday evening last somebody —well-disposed, we trust—left a box, containing three kittens, on the door step of our friend, Dr. F. M. Shaw. Attached to the box was a scrap of paper, upon which the following verses were inscribed in a very neat lady's hand: Three little kit tons nestle here, Far, far away from mother dear; Torn from our home by ruthless hand. Kind sir, blame not our little bard. We've had no voice In stocking earth, Nothing to say about our birth; Why we're on earth, you know the cause- Obedience to Nature's laws. Then let no cruel gulllotino. Before our pleading eyes be seen; No worthless canine craunch our bones, While you make merry o'er our moans. No hungry John, with almond eye, Transform us into feline pie. Tie not a stone our necks around, And toss us in the ditch to drown. Olve lissome milk, we humbly pray; Watch o'er us, day by day; Olve us a warm and cozy nest— Your stove-pipe hat would suit us best. When we grow up 'twill be our joy, Clophers and rodents to destroy; We'll tap their heads with genlle paw- Invite them mildly to our maw. By way of response, the Doctor says in a note to.the editor, "As two of my valuable gopher kittens died with in a week, and as I am a little short of cats just now, having only one John Thomas cat, and four others, the anonymous madrigal, with its cater wauling accompaniment, came oppor tunely to hand. Thanks— F. M. Shaw. Los Angeles, August 18th, 1874. Turn-Verein Hall was well filled last night, on the occasion of Vivian's farewell benefit. We have already said our say in regard to Vivian's tal ents, and those of Madame Muse and Madame ReifTarth, and it is unneces sary to add anything in their praise. Last night the programme of the pre vious entertainment was changed almost entirely, a few features only being retained by special request. The songs and sketches were rendered with their usual happy results, and at the conclusion of the entertainment Mr. Vivian took occasion to express his entire satisfaction with his visit to Los Angeles. May the company come and gladden us again with the coming of another season. Mrs. Carter lias been elected by the School Board as Mr. Saxon's assistant in the Bath-street School.
