Last Saturday night was the occa

the birth day Mrs. Henry Rhelm.
About twenty young couples marched
down Main street to her residence
where a serenade was started by a duet
sung by Miss Rosa Reim and Prof.
Arevalo; then music by Dick Kern &
Co. Curtain raises and the entire
company walk in aud indulge in
dancing. About midnight the sur
prisers were surprised by Piepenberg's
Brass Band. Miss Blaucho performed
seme very difficult Irish and Spanish
jigs All enjoyed themselves to their
entire satisfaction and the party broke
up at daylight.
On Sunday afternoon Ambrosia Sal
azar a young native woman who lives
on tne line of the railroad about two
and a half miles from this city met
with a terrible accident which came
near causing her death. While cook
ing in the hitchen her clothes caught
fire from a brand which fell from the
stove and she was at once enveloped
in names. Very indiscreetly, she ran
out in the open air, thus increasing
the blaze. A sister of the unfortunate
lady, Mrs. Olivas, and Mr. Juan Buel
na came to her assistance, and after
some time by tho opportune use of a
barrel of water standing near at hand
they succeeded In extinguishing the
flames though both had their hands
badly burned in the operation. Miss
Salazar was found to be se
riously burned her back, chest, and
limbs being badly blistered and
her eyebrows and hair being
singed off. Very fortunately Dr.
Stan way who happened to be rid
ing by with a companion stopped at
tlie house to procure a drink of water
and was made acquainted with the
circumstances. He administered such
relief to the afflicted parties as was at
his command and made them as com
fortable as circumstances would admit.
Soou after Dr. Lyford who had been
summoned from the city arrived and
took the patients in charge. They are
now in a fair way to recover, and the
young lady will not suffer any perma
nent Injury more thau scars upon her
Tho twenty-fifth anniversary of the
wedding of Mr. and Mrs. M. Norton
occurred last Sunday, and was appro
priately celebrated at their residence
on Fort street. At 1 P. ftf. a dinner
was given to the relatives and friends
of the family, at which a board wan
spread with all tho luxuries of the
season and supplemented by a pro
miscuous pulling of champage corks.
Toasts appropriate to tho occasion were
offered by Rev. Mr. Edelman, Mr. M.
Morris, Mr. Mendelsohn, late of Japan,
and Mr. B. Cohen, with many wishes
for endless good luck to the bride
groom aud bride, and the recurrence
in due time of their golden and
diamond wedding. Mr. Levy and
lady, a couple far on tho shady side of
life who officiated at the wedding of
Mr. Norton and wife as bridegroom
and bridesmaid a quarter of a oentury
back honored the occasion with their
presence and gave expression to a
countenance of their old regard. An
elegant array of silverware was pre
sented to Mr. Norton and lady by
friends in this city and San Francisco.
In the evening a large company as
sembled at the house to conclude the
festivities and enjoyed themselves
until a late hour with banquet, music
The open-air services in English and
Chinese attracted quite a crowd in
front of Temple Block last Sunday.
Although the services were designed
principally for the edification of the
Celestials, they were very much in the
minority, not more than twenty being
present altogether. After a short ad
dress, delivered by the Rev. Dr. Fran
cis, the Chinese missionary spoke to
his countrymen for about fifteen min
utes. He seemed to be earnest and
impressive in his words, however odd
they sounded to the majority of his
listeners, and those who could under
stand his import gave him the most
marked attention. To the credit of our
city, we are proud to say that in that
promiscuous gathering, with its some
what peculiar, and, to some, ludicrous,
circumstances, not the least disrespect
was shown by word or action to either
the speaker or any of the Chinese au
ditors. After the conclusion of his re
marks, a chart bearing a translation
of the little song, "There is a Happy
Land," in Chinese characters,
was hung up in sight of the
assemblage, and the missionary
attempted to lead his Chinese
brothers in rendering it into song. To
onr notion, it was a sorry attempt at
music, but we suppose it was melody
to the drum of John's ear. Afterwards
It was sung with the English words
and tune, sounding much more Chris
tian-like. The assembly was finally
dismissed by a benediction,pronounced
in passable English by the missionary.
An Ecclesiastical Council met at the
new German Ecclesiastical Church, on
Spring street, between Fourth and
Fifth, in this city, on Sunday, the 10th
instant, for the purpose of organizing
a Baptist Church. The delegates
present were Revs. John Francis of
San Francisco, J. C. Curtis of Los Ni
etos, Deacon I. Lankershim of San
Francisco, Rev. Mr. Cooper and Dr.
Hobbs, with a number of lay breth
The meeting was called to order by
the appointment of Roy. J. C. Curtis
as President and Mr. Hancock as Sec
retary. After the reading of the Dec
laration of Faith aud Covenant and
other preliminary exercises, reading
letters from the churches, etc., the
Rev. John Francis delivered the rec
ognition sermon and the Rev. Mr.
Curtis the charge to the newly organ
ized church officers, pastor, etc.
During the day two Chinese and
English services were held and largely
attended—the first being on the public
square near Temple Block, where the
best of order was maintained, and the
second in the church on Spring street.
Commencing at tho close of the or
ganization services, and notwithstand
ing tho meeting was protracted for
four hours without intermission the
interest was continued to the close.
The newly organized church will
meet every Sabbath at the above
named church edifice at 3 o'clock p. M.

How Is It?
Editor Herald: How is it that
the Commute on Police make a dis
crimination betwen officers when
charges are preferred against different
members of the police force?
Some two weeks ago a charge was
preferred by a person of doubtful rep
utation, in fact a notorious rough and
hoodlum. The officer was immediate
ly suspended from duty and an infor
mal trial or inquisition was held be
fore the Police Committee. The tes
timony did not go to prove anything
against the officer but went conclu
sively to prove all that the officer said
was true. But there was a certain pet
of the committee that must have a
place, and the decision was concluded
long before the inquisition met, and
the officer mentioned was compelled
to send in his resignation.
Los Angeles, Sept. 7th 1874.
The Santa Barbara Index is respon
sible for the statement that a field of
barley plowed three years ago at tlie
base of the Santa Cruz mountains
yielded this year a volunteer crop of
fifty bushels to the acre.
Suggestion! to the Grangers.
Kditou Herald: As the Granger
interest Is strong and becoming
stronger daily, I would like to ofTer a
suggestion as to a possible relief Kjr
our southern counties, that do not
grow wheat as readily and profitably
as tho other portions of the State, but
do grow unfailing crops of barley. I
believe that it will pay to ship barley
direct to England, if the tonnage can
be obtained. While in Europe last
year it was a part of my business to
examine carefully the shipping, with
a view to charter or purchase possibly
vessels to bring passengers and freight
direct to the southern part of Califor
nia. Therefore, I placed myself in
communication with tho principal
ship-building firms of tho United
Kingdom, to ascertain the expense of
charter and purchase of such a class of
vessels as would be suitable to bring
passengers direct, via the Isthmus er
.Straits of Magellan, and return with
freight. My plan Involved the con
struction of sucli vessels as it was
found upon investigation that there
were no craft suitable for the exigen
cies of such a voyage.
As my experience in the building
of steamers has been acquired by ac
tual investment and construction. I
soon discovered that a new model and
mode of propulsion was required to
unable one to overcome the difficul
ties to encounter in steaming from
Europe to California without break
ing bulk or vice versa. My plan of
construction was submitted to the
most competent engineers of both
Europe aud America, and met with
an unqualified approval. Now as I
am heart and soul a granger although
not belonging to the organization, it
would give me exceeding pleasure to
go to England or the East and build
one sr more ships to transport freight
or passengers direct between the Old
World and tho New upon such terms
and in so desirable a style as to leave
nothing to ask by emigrant or ship
per that desired to reach our industri
al home, or send away our surplus
fruits or grains.
There are iron masters and ship
builders in Englang and Scotland
who would gladly take barely as pay
ment for their ships. So there is no
excuse for being dependent upon any
one for our own conveyance.
