Fight hundred tons of freight is in course of shipment from San Francis co to the Panamint Mines, under the management of Senators Jones and Stewart, There was a rush for goods in Sam'l Norton's new dry-goods store, Arcadia Block, yesterday. Mr. Norton has a line new stock on hand, and he is sell ing cheaper than the cheapest. A dispatch was received by the au thorities here yesterday to the effect that the absconding Moser had been arrested in Santa Barbara with $380 of his ill-gotten funds on his person. Under the new law, Postmasters' letters are not free, but require the of ficial Postoffico stamp especially de signed for that purpose. Postmaster Bent desires our citizens to make a note of this. The Orizaba arrived yesterday with some two hundred passengers for this place. Among the number was a gang of forty Chinamen, who will proceed to Panamint to work on the road leading into the mines and to clear a site for the mill which is to be erected there. JohnT. Lambert, alias Frank Ed wards was conviced of manslaughter in the District Court yesterday and ordered to appear for sentence on Mon thly Sept. 21st. It will be remember ed that Lambert was the principal in the last stabbing afl'ray in Sonora and killed his man. Sheriff J. R. Stone of Ventura county, is in this city looking after some horse thieves and house break ers. He was made the recipient of a handsome silver-mounted revolver at Wolf it Gates' saloon on Wednesday evening—the gift of Mr. A. W. Potts, our County Clerk. A number of friends assembled at the saloon to see the honors done and Dr. Russell made the presentation in a neat little speech. John Purpura's barber shop, on Spring street, opposite the Herald office is increasing in popularity daily. Tlie shop is well furnished and kept in apple-p'e order, and the three first class workmen are constantly on hand to attend tlie wants of patrons. For polite treatment, first-class work and satisfaction generally in the tonsorial line, call on Purpura. There will lie a meeting of those who desire to unite in forming a Tribe •■f the Improved Order of Red Men in Los Angeles, at Good Templar Hall, on Friday evening, Sept. 25th, 1874, for the purpose of taking the initiatory steps for the formation of tlie Tribe. AU who have signed the petition are requested to be present, prepared to pay the charter fee, and others who desire to join should put their names to the petition before tlie meeting. A full attendance is desired, as officers will be elected for the current term. The dog law is now to be enforced In Los Angeles by direction of the Common Council, and owners of ca nines who have any regard for tho life, liberty and happiness of their pets will do well to take out tho necessary license. The tax is SI 50 and S3 per head, ranging with the gender, and it can be paid to Officer Hart lee, the acting Marshal. A crusade will soon be organized against the worthless curs which infest our streets and then wo be unto those which do not bear the municipal tag on their collars. A perverse bronco hitched in front of the Court House took a "pulling" fit yesterday and came very near com mitting suicide outright. He was hitched to a heavy post with a strong rope, and all of his efforts to pull loose only resulted in shutting off his wind without effecting his release; but the strong-minded brute pulled and choked and choked and pulled the harder; lay down and pulled, stood up and pulled, bucked and pulled, in fact just pulled. At last, not being able to dispense with his breath entirely, he gave it up and stood quietly up by the post, looking very much like a fool horse badly sold. Mr. H. Smith, Adjuster for the Lon don and Liverpool and Globe Insur ance Company, was in the city yester day, and afteradjusling the loss on the Steams mill, which burned last week, drew his check for $6,000, the amount of the policy held by Mrs. Steams in that company. Mr. Callingham and Mr. Chalmer are also here on the part of the Commercial Union and State Investment Companies, and will doubtless make their adjustments and settlements to-day. Greatcredit is due these companies for tlie prompt and satisfactory manner in which they have met their losses, not only in this instance but on every occasion where Sires have occurred in our city involv ing their risks. Mr. J. W. Brodrick is agent for all of the companies named. Tho Lyceum. Tlie Lyceum Committee has spared no pains in their effort to make the first entertainment a j-uecessful one, and the prospect for this evening Is such as to Insure an enjoyable occa sion. Persons requested to take part in the exercises have been unexpect edly prompt in responding, and tin programme promises very favorably, There will be readings by Messrs Binford and Smith, and essays by Master Goodrich, Mr. Littlefleld and one other gentleman. In addition to these, the specially interesting fea tures of the evening are expected to bo Instrumental and vocal music by Mendel Meyer and Pancho Coronel, and the reading of the first number of the Los Angeles Independent, a news paper conducted under the auspices of the Lyceum by several young ladies whose previous literary efforts are a sufficient guarantee for this portion of the entertainment.

A cordial invitation is extended to all who may desire to be present. The time of meeting is half-past seven P. M. Common Council Proceedings. Thursday, Sept. 17th.

I">.] The Los Angeles people of all classes vie with each other in efforts to at tract people from abroad and to im press visitors favorably. The local newspapers there fairly agonize from day to day over the incomparable healthfulness of the climate and the exhaustless wealth of mineral, agri cultural and manufacturing possibili ties, etc., of the entire southern coun try; and the persistent, earnest, whole souled efforts of the enthusiastic peo ple of that city are producing visible and permanent results. The fame of Southern California is extending to the ends of tho earth. The Public Library of Los Angeles is an institu tion of decided merit. The collection of books is not so extensive as tlie Oakland Library, but they have been selected witli intelligent care. Con nected with iho library is a pleasant and conveniently arranged reading room, free to all well-conducted per sons, audio which strangers are cor dially invited. Conspicuously posted on the wall at the foot of the stair way which leads up to the room and at the Postoffice on Spring street, are placards reading thus: LOS ANGELES LIBRARY. • OPEN FROM 12 M.

Tlie coUeo tion of magazines anil literary week- complete. PROFESSOR TYNDALL'S ADDRESS. Editor Herald: Space fa your columns is asked for a brief review of Prof. Tyndall's address delivered on assuming tlie chair as President of the British Association for the Advance ment of Science for the current year. A recent number of the New York WttMjf Sun gives the following: The address recently delivered by Prof. Tyndall at Belfast, before the British Association for the Advance ment of Science, will doubtless|excite to renewed energy the contest between Science and Religion, which has been ragmg during the past few years. Ap parently goaded into it by the criti cisms of the religious press upon his proposition for a scientific test of the efficacy of prayer, the Professor has seized the occasion of his elevation to the Presidency of the Association to make the distinct avowal that he sees in the matter "the promise and poten cy of every form and quality of life." In other words, he declares that mat ter contains in itself all the elements necessary to account for the phenom ena of creation without assuming the existence of a personal, intelligent Creator. Taken alone, this avowal would au thorize us to rank Prof. Tyndall among the Materialists. Such a con clusion, however, he most earnestly deprecates, even to the extent of say ing: "In fact, the whole processor evo lution is the manifestation of a power absolutely Inscrutable to the intellect of man. *As little in our day as In the days of Job, can man by searching find this power out. Considered fun damentally, it is by the operation of an insoluble mystery that life is evolved, species diH'erentiated, and mind unfolded from their prepotent elements in the immeasurable past. There is, you will observe, no very rank materialism here." And a little further on he says again: "We have the conception that all we see around us, and all we feel with in us—the phenomena of physical na ture as well as those of the human mmd —have tlieir unsearchable roots in a cosmical life, if I dare apply the term, an infinitesimal span of which only is offered to the investigation of mail." Aside from tho contradiction be tween the idea of matter as self-suf ficient to evolve every form and quality of life, and that of an unknown power which evolves from that matter all perceptible phenomena, it is worthy of remark ho,v confidently Prof. Tyndall pronounces this latter power ""inscrutable" "Insoluble," and "unsearchable." There Is in these epithets a revelation of great sicniflcance. It is a confes sion of the impotency of Prof. Tyn dall and his school to fairly grapple with the subject they profess to dis cuss, and of tlieir unwillingness to concede that any one else can do what they fail to do. They know all about it that can be known, and therefore those who pretend to know more are impostors. It Is this secret arrogance more than than their attacks upon accredited opinions that renders mod ern scientists so hateful to the public at large. Men will listen to argument when it is candidly and fairly submit ted to their judgments, but they will not hear dogmatism which, in ad vance, brands dissent as folly. All this, however, does not detract from the force of such arguments as Prof. Tyndall aud his friends really have to present. They have already done much to dissipate false ideas of the relations between God and tlie universe, and we trust they may be enabled to do more yet. In tlie strug gle between them and their opponents tlie truth will sooner or later come to light, and when it does come to light no one will object to the means by which that result has been achieved. The Professor's allusion to the ques tion put by Job's friend is inappropri ate to the subject under discussion, and shows a want of candor, a want of knowledge or an inexcusable weak ness on the part of one making sucli high claims to ability and learning. Zophar, in reproving the afflicted pa triarch for seeking to justify himself, declares that the wisdom of God is unsearchable, and dealing purely with the spiritual phenomena attendant upon tlie exercise of genuide repent ance in the midst of severe afflictions, asks, "Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty to perfection?" These questions in troduce us to a sublime description of tho Almighty, a knowledge of whom is " high as Heaven, deeper than lv ll and broader than the sea." Zophar then draws a picture of tlie power, wisdom and absolute greatness of God, which is startling to all who have violated his law. He is repre sented as a being who intimately knows the human heart —is thorough ly acquainted witli its sins, and from whom it is utterly impossible to es cape. Could the learned Professor have alluded to any book of human origin which proves with such abso lute certainty the existence and char acter of God, who creates, upholds and governs all things? There are few sciences which are not foreshadowed in the Bible, and there is no surer an tidote to tlie gross materialism of " evolution," which the Professor has tlie boldness to avow and defend in course of his address, than is found on every page of the Divine Record. Tlie sublime truth that God created— called into being — the heavens and the earth anil all things therein is fundamental—it lies at tlie base of all knowledge. Denying this great fact, such minds as Tyndall's, Humphreys' and Darwin's may tread the dark mazes of evolution without rest or hope. "Natural selection is a rope of sand that crumbles if but touched with a sinple fact, and " Protophasm " is a shifting title, eluding its discoverers and gliding from under its adherents. Nor should the advocates of such speculations warp Scripture from its true meaning by allusions, leaving the impression that it supports their view. If they see in ' matter the promise and potency of every form of life," the proof is not found in that book which positively and persistent ly refers all "matter" anil all "life" to tlie creative act of God. In the con test between science and religion the latter has nothing to fear; but tlie Bi l»le —God's revealed Word—must not bo perverted or misapplied. Nor is it admitted, as tlie Sun inti mates, that Professor Tyndall and those who follow him have " dissipat ed " from the world "false ideas of the relations of God and the universe." II m>, who can name them ? Their spec ulatiuns are far from being univer sally adopted, even by the mass of un believers in the Bible, and toall Chris tians, and by far to tbe greater mai if our race, its teachings nr.* receiver as the title and only satisfactory ac count of the origin of all things. The Scriptures are the only standard of re ligious faith to the best thinkers and leailing intellects of the age. W. Los Angeles.
