CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. SI'N'DAY SEPT. 13, 1874. Wk understand that the Railroad Company have decided to lay their track through the south west side of Anaheim. The location of the depot is not yet determined. The Erprets is again digging away at the Council and the Council is doing much as did the moon when the ca nine barked at it—keeping right along as If nothing had happened. The Sacramento Union calls tho Stockton Independent the Cow-Catch er. Now we happen to know some thing about the Independent and we know to call it a "Cow-Catcher is ap plying a misnomer. The paper is too slow to catch anything. If placed on the rear of a train propelled by the force of its own intellect almost any old cow would soon catch it. We are just now hearing a good deal of railroad talk. What it will all amount to is one of those things which uo one can guess. The prospect of a road from the coast through this city, and by way of Cajon Pass on to Cerro Gordo, seems more flattering than ever before. Senator Jones and his friends regard the enterprise very favoia'jly and willnodot b (materially aid in carrying it out. Our citizens should not let the present opportunity slip by unimproved. A. Delano, of Grass valley, died on Tuesday last. The deceased was well and popularly known throughout the State as the author of "Old Block's Sketch Book;" "Pen and Knife Sketches," and " Life on the Plains and at the Diggings." He also wrote hundreds of newspaper articles and stories. He was an upright, honor able man. and commanded the respect of all who knew him. He leaves a family and a large circle of friends, who will remember him with affection and friendship. Returns from the North Carolina election, from all but eleven counties give this result on the vote for Super intendent of Public Instruction: Pool (Dem.) 89,445 Purnoll (Rep.) 78,013 Democratic majority 11,432 In the eleven counties yet to hear from, the vote in 1572 was about equal ly divided between the Democratsand Republicans. That year Grant carried the State by 23,904 majority. In 1572 the Legislature stood: Democratic majority on joint ballot, 24. This year the Democratic majority is 72. THE up-country journals are grow ing facetious over the decision of a Los Angeles jury that found a man sane while examining him on a charge of insanity and immediately afterward, while trying him on a charge of attempt to kill, pronounced him insane. It does look curious, but considered from an emotional stand point, the two verdicts may be made to harmonize. The man was crazy when he attempted the killing, but he was not crazy when the jury looked at him from a crazy standpoint. The explanation is a little hazy yet, but it is as clear as we can make it. Poetry the Key to Truth. Do not confound the poetical way of viewing things with the expression of poetry. Poetry, the first and finest of the fine arts, Is the making of a noble use, according to our talents and op portunities, of such amiable and noble emotions as we are capable of. Anil this may be done through the medium ol words, when the perfect expression eonstltutes written verse, or it may be done through marble, or painting, or music. But there must be grounds for the noble emotions before they can be experienced, and these come of the habit of viewing things poetically, aud are supplied by the Imagination, which, contemplating nature as a world of emblems, is received and used by the poetic faculty, having nothing iv them defective or untrustworthy. No poet worthy the name lives in illusions. He is the high priest of truth as well as a singer and a painter of beautiful scenes. When there are two interpretations offered of a given difficulty or of any question whatever that refers to matters above secular und physical needs, that solution which men would call poetical, or opposed to prosaic, may infallibly be relied upon as the truest and highest. It was not without reason that the ancients accounted poetry the lan guage of the gods and of divinely in spired men. As the expression of the silent and universal symbolism of na ture, touching men's hearts at every point, and exciting noble emotions in those who listened, poetry could not fail to be regarded as heaven-born. To this day we ac knowledge it to be so. The inspira tion of the past is forced upon us, whether spoken through the medi um of the pen, or of the marble, can vas or lute. Some old writer once mentioned the marriage of religion with poetry, having been instituted at the foundation of the world. The idea was a grand one; for by effecting such a union, we can conceive how easy for the mind to flow in a mighty st ream of cause and effect. Every object then has its beauty, and every beauty adorns itself with the coloring of mor al eloquence. Moral science, social science, and natural science like the graces, should go hand iv hand, and ever recognize the poetic faculty as belonging to their sisterhood. And all should be enlisted in the pursuit of truth so that at the same time the heart may be effected, and the mind purified. The Mayoralty. Among the several worthy gentle men whose names have been mention ed in connentioii with the candidacy for Mayor, Mr. P. BEAUDRY, present member of the Common Council from the Second Ward,is probably the most popular with the people, besides being a man possessed of those qualities— energy, Intelligence and far slghted ness—which a proper regard for the interests, present and future, of our city requires In the Mayor. Mr. Beaudry became a resident of Los Angeles in the early part of the year 1852 and his interests have been here ever since. In 1854 he purchased what is now known as Beaudry Block and thenceforth he has been engaged in building up and Improving some part ofthe city. His attention was attracted to the hill lands In the north western part of the city as early as 1866, and when he said that elevated plateau would one day be covered with dwellings surrounded by groves and gardens, he was called wild and visionary. Those lands were consid ered next to worthless and the wise thought it an excellent joke to sell Mr. Beaudry tracts here and there for nominal sums. Who the joke was on will be seen from tiie light of sub sequent events. From one piece for which Mr. Beaudry paid $517 he has sold lots to the amount of $6,000 or $7,000 and still has one-half of the land. For the Bellevue Terrace tract he paid $1,500, divided it into 150 lots from which he realized $35,000 and has Bellevue Terrace, one of the mest beautiful spots in the city remaining. He purchased the plot known as Beaudry Terrace for 555, sold $5,000 worth of lots, has half of it left on which stand five or six cottages that pay two per cent, on the money invest ed. These are the results of the jokes played on Mr. Beaudry by the wise ones in selling him hill lands. Mr. Beaudry was one of the organizers and the first President of the original Los Angeles Water Company, and until its last assessment was paid he owned one - fifth of its stock. He was one of the originators and organizers of the Canal and Reservoir Company. He went out on the river with Capt. Moore and Geo. HANSEN, and dem onstrated the practicability of convey ing the water over the proposed route. He has taken active part in each of the steamship and railroad enterprises inaugurated for the advancement of the interests of our city and valley. It is due to Mr. Beaudry's energy that the hill lands, once considered worth less, and from which the city derived no revenue, are now assessed at $120 per acre. It is hazarding nothing to say that he will yet increase the as sessment value of this property to at least $2,000 per acre. As early as 1867 Mr. Beaudry* conceived the idea of throwing water on the hill lands by means of steam power, and from time to time he purchased these lands as they were tendered him by those who considered them worthless. To-day an abundance of excellent water is llowing over the highest parts, forced there by an engine and pump through a system of pipes designed to irrigate the entire area, all costing not less than $75,000. Mr. Beaudry has ac complished this great work unaided aud alone. He has expended this vast sum of money against the judgment of his friends and amid the jeers of the wise ones, who called him a vis ionary. It is a grand work, and in its successful carrying out Mr. Beaudry has done more for Los Angeles than any other of her enterprising citizens. It is such a man as this that our city will need at the head of her municipal government in tlie future. Mr. Beau dry thoroughly understands the city's wants. He became a member of the Common Council in December, 1871, and has occupied a seat in that body ever since. He has devoted much time anil study to street grading, tlie drainage question and the water sys tem—three important problems which must be solved by the city authorities of next year. He is a man of superior intelligence, untiring energy and the purest integrity. With a Common Council composed of such men as may be, and, we hope, will be selected, and with Mr. Beaudry as Mayor,the muni cipal affairs of Los Angeles will be ably and honestly conducted and the city will begin to show those Improve ments to which her wealth and beauty of I oral ion entitle her. An Excellent Action. The too common use of fire-arms among the youth of this city cost a boy his life a few days ago. It is said that many of the school boys carry pistols, and not uufrequently boast what they can do with them in case any one should be so unfortunate as to Insult their "manhood." It is high time a stop was put to this juve nile pistol practice, and the following resolution, passed by the Hoard of Ed ucation at its meeting yesterday, may do some good in that direction. We call tlie attention of parents to it, as by so doing they may prevent the ex pulsion of their boys from the school. The resolution reads as follows: "Re solved, that any scholar who shall bring with him to the school, or who may have in his possession during school hours, any dangerous weapon, shall be immediately dismissed from the schools of the city." S. A. Waldron has one Lhouaaud dollars in legal tenders, which he wishes to sell. Call at the Dollar Store. ■At about 1 o'clock TuesUay afternoon Mr. Mohen's house, situated on Peta luma street, Gold Hill, was discovered to be on fire, causing damage to the extent of $9,000. THE PACIFIC MAIL. From an extensive article in the Alta, devoted toan exhibitof the pres ent condition of the. Pacific Mall Steamship Company's line*, we con dense the following "points of interest: Within the past year the company has already added to their fleet afloat six new iron screw steamers, of which four cost half a million each, and two cost three hundred and fifty thousand dollars each. Recently they have launched two of the finest steamships in the world, the Bity of Peking and City of Tokio. each costing one million one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. They are now in New York, receiving their machinery and outfits, and will both sail Ibr San Francisco within the next thirty and sixty days. In building these ships, every pre caution and experience has been availed of, and it is confidently ex pected that they will be able to make the run from Hongkong to San Fran cisco, via Yokohama, in twenty days, as they are guaranteed by the builder, under a heavy forfeit, to make 14J knots per hour. The six new iron steamships already running are paid for, and the two now finishing will leave New York with clean titles. CHINA LINE. On the arrival of the new vessels at San Francisco, the Company's China line will be composed of tlie Great Republic, China, Japan, City of Pe king and City of Tokio. The Alaska and Colorado, now running on this route, will be held as spare ships—one at Hongkong, the other at San Fran cisco—for use in emergencies, to load when required as extra ships during the tea season. The Compauy have recently closed a contract with Messrs. John Roach & Son, of Chester, Pa., for three new iron steamships lor their China line. They will probably be better adapted to that trade than anything yet built. They will all be fifty feet longer than the Col i ma, with one additional deck, and will cost $700,000 each, in cluding outfits; the contract price for iron work being $600,000. They will carry 800 steerage passengers and 3, --000 measurement tons of freight. They are to be finished within twelve months, and will have 50 per cent, more power than the Colima, with six boilers instead of four, and 80 pounds pressure compound engines. Their speed are to be sixteen knots per hour, or " the fastest of any steam ships in the world." They are building in accordance with the regulations of Bureau Ver itas, and are to be 15 to 20 per cent, stronger than are required by English Lloyds. In addition to the three new iron screw steamships already referred to as building, the Company has under contract two others,a 11 of which are to be engaged in the trade of this port with China and Japan. The live, when complete, will cost over four million dollars. The company originally expended $6,000,000 to open up the trade of this port with China, and they now pro pose to retain what tbey have so largely developed, by bringing teas, silks, etc., from China and Japan at as low a rate of freight as any line now or hereafter on this route. After the arrival here of the Peking and Tokio, the aggregate capacity per annum of the China steamers alone will be 26,000 tons weight, or 86,000 tons measurement. The present administration desire to so conduct the company's affairs as to merit the hearty approval of this community, believing that by so doing they will best succeed in plac ing the company upon a strong and permanent basis, alike profitable to themselves and their patrons. And suggestions tending to this end will, we hear, be cheerfully received and acted upon as far as practicable, and such will be considered as true friends who thus aim to assist in correcting any outstanding abuses. ft is undeniable that the Wett Coast of North America has a brilliant fu ture before it, and its business on the Pacific Ocean will never be less than at present. A large fleet of steamers will inevitably be required for tlie growing necessities of its commerce. The Pacific Mail Steamship Com pany have ships and experience nec essary to develop and conduct this business profitably. They now seem determined to keep thoroughly up with the times, by building new iron steamers having all the latest im provements in speed and comfort. Last but not least, they are emphat ically a California creation, associated with its growth, and the company, standing alone, has maintained a fleet of carrying vessels which have flown at their peak, for over a quarter of a century, through fair weather and foul, a flag that should be tbe pride of every true American heart.
