A lhatch game of billiards will bo be played at tbe Orient saloon at 3 o'oloek tbis afternoon by Leandro jiuolva end Mr. MeKinney. Tbe Stake is SUM) a side. Mr. MeKinney is a professional expert from Texas, while bis opponent is a citizen of Los Angeles. Both are said to be tine players and tbe prospect is good for an uncommonly interesting garnet In view of the prospect for a large attendance at the complimentary con cert to be given to Miss Olivas next Friday evening, the place of holding ihe entertainment has been cbanged ftoio Templar to Turu-Verein Hall. He hope the hall will be tilled to its utmost capacity pa this occasion as a fair testimonial of tbe regard in which Miss Olivas is held by our citizens. We acknowledge the receipt of a complimentary ticket tothe fair and supper to be given by the ladies for the benefit of the Episcopal Church at Anaheim this evening. We regret that business will prevent us from en joying the entertainment with the people of Anaheim, but we wish tbe ladies of the church an abundant re turn financially as a result of their efforts. The latest preventative of bores in augurated iv the East Is .something after this style: A man has a ticket pinned on the under side of the lappel of his coat with the words, "Hire a hall!" printed in plain letters. When he is beset by an insurance or book agent or anybody who is likely to talk him to death, he carelessly turns up his coat-lappel aud displays the sug gestive card. It is said to be very ef fective. Capt. Kraazynskl who has extensive oil claims in the San Fernando dis trict, is in tho city negotiating with Dome Eastern men to develop his claims. He feels confident that he will strike it rich ami draw im mense oleagenous wealth from li is ter ritory. Tlte Captain's claims are lo cated immediately at the right of the atage road, some nine miles North of San Fernando, and directly opposite the Temple and other claims of which bo much has been said. Should the negotiations be closed, work will be Commenced IU a short time, and we shall have another monied enterprise to record for our county. Prof. Carr's Lecture. The Lecture of Prof. Carr on "Wom an's Prerogative" delivered at the Congregational Church for the benefit of the Public Library was of rare ex cellence and amply rewarded all who attended. The speaker took the ground of a higher standard of educa tion for the women of our day and, when this is acquired, they will be the educators of tbe world, instructing not only in tlte household, but throwing their more refined influences over the whole field of society. He also advo cated the right of woman to do what ever she was well adapted for and could accomplish successfully in every field of labor. The lecture was one of tbe most entertaining ever deli vered in Los Angeles, and was replete with -wholesome truths. It should be printed in letters of gold and hung at ■every fireside and in every schqol jroom iv the land. FORT HILL. Annlher Chapter In lis History. In the early part of October last, Col. J. J. Warner reatl an interesting historical paper before the Lyceum, giving an account of the construction of the fortifications on Fort Hill. At that time the history as given by Col. Warner was taken as full ami conclu sive. It effectually controverted the common belief that the works in (lltes tion were built by fitment I Fremont and lixetl with equal certainly the fuel that General Micheltorena planned and partially built thetn, long before Fremont was known Id California. Hut certain facts which have recently come to our knowledge show (hat only half of the tale was told when il ter minated with the brief and spasmodic effort of the Mexican General. The entire fortifications us we know them now, or rather their ruins, are the work of Col. St. George Cooke, built by tho Mormon Battalion under his command in the year 1847. Yet we will not attempt to rob General Mi cheltoreno of his honors, if sucll they be, for it is established beyond a doubt that he planned the works and com menced then-construction iv 1.H42. Hut to be clearly understood we must lake up the thread of history, :ind, com mencing where Col. Warner left off, follow tbe course of events for the suc ceeding live years- 1842 to 1547. Under apprehension of an attack from Com modore Jones, Commandant of a United States Squadron, who had just invested Monterey, General Manuel Micheltorena, Mexican Governor of the State, designed and commenced the fortifications of which we write. As stated by Col. Warner, for about five tlays the work was carried on wit li mit intermission, the working parties being frequently relieved. Before the work which had been outlined was completed, however, a message from Commodore Jones informed General Micheltorena that Monterey had been restored to the Mexican authorities. All apprehensions of an attack having been dissipated, the work on Fort Hill was discontinued. How much had been accomplished in the way of forti fyimr the position is left in a great measure to conjecture, but we incline to the belief that only an inconsidera ble part of the works could have been constructed in t he live days and nights during which the Mexican General's men were employed. We are told that the first plans comprehended exten sive works. History also informs us that when General Micheltorena first landed in San Diego, a short time pre vious to the time of which we write, coming from Mexico, "he had only a moderate force with him" and his men were somewhat inferior in dis cipline. Now, in those days a "mod erate force" might have been fifty or a hundred men, and this imperfectly organized baud working for so short a time could not have carried out exten sive plans very considerably. So, then, Fort Hill lied assumed only an incipi eut aspect of war, aud in this condit.iou it remained for five years. Overlook ing the little Mexican hamlet, Nensira Seiiora Reina ile Los Ant/el en, during a time of turmoil and bloodshed, eonld this silent monitor speak from its old tumble-down embankments, what a story would it tell! Leaving his un finished work, tho Mexican Com mander with his farce repaired to Monterey, then Capital of the State, and assumed his position as Governor. An insurrection was soon raised by the native Californians, headed by Alvarado, a previous Governor, aud Vallejo, who acted as General of the insurgent forces. On the 21st of Feb ruary, life,' Castro, lending the rebels, pushed out from Los Angeles and the hostile parties met. After a brief and bloodless engagement, Mexico surren dered. California was declared an in dependent State and a "Deputation" elected Pio Pico, its oldest Minister, Governor, and Castro General. Mi cheltorena, his officers and all of his soldiers who hud not married in the country were nut on board ail Ameri can bark and hustled off to San Bias. In the Spring of the following year, Pio Pico still being Governor und Castro busy ut the north plotting how to oust him — a contention (laying sprung up between them—there glided in from over the mountains at the east a young surveyor with a little parly of mountaineers, whose appear ance put a period to the civil wars and the old times in California, But we have not space to follow ull the events of this interesting period, und must be content with v brief summary. In ISlti Los Angeles was taken possession of by Governor Stockton,the commander of the United States forces in the State, und here, ou the loth of Sep tember, be was joined by Fremont with his battalion. Both commanders departed soon after with their forces, leaving a garrison of fifty men to hold possession of the town. The Mexi cans, seizing their ndvnntuge, raised a force, overpowered the garrison, and again Los Angeles was in the hands of her old masters. The place, with its fortifications, was recaptured on January 10th, 1847, by Governor Stockton, and we believe has never since slipped from the grasp of the United States. During this five years of revolution and counter revolution, the fortifications on Fort Hill were no doubt frequently occupied, but we have no account that the unfinished work of General Micheltorena was taken up and completed, or in fact that ally improvement in the fortifica tions was made, in January, 1847, however, a Mormon battalion of four companies, some three hundred and fifty strong, under command of Col. St. George Cooke, was stationed on the bill. Within the intrenchments they pitched their tents and remained for about n year, when they were mus tered out of the service. Dining their occupancy of Fort Hill, however, fearing an attack from the Mexicans, they repaired the old intrenchments, now no doubt well worn und battered by their five years' service, and taking up the abandoned plan, completed a fort of considerable strength. The ditches were re-dug, deep und wide, and the earth taken from them thrown on the inside. Besides this, an adobe wull wus rnised along the inner line ofthe intrenchments to the height of six or seven feet. Two brass cannon were mounted, v flag-staff was raised by Col. Stevenson with due ceremo nies, and the stars and stripes were unfurled from Its top. These works, we are led to believe, formed, iv tho whole, a genuine fort, with all its ir regular angles, projections, corners and parapets, and must have been quite a stronghold. If the curious reader will take a stroll around these old remains some pleasant afternoon, he will see, beside the lines of demurk atiou formed by the old ditches, a mound extending along them on the inside. If he will observe closely the outer portion of this' mound, he can trace the almost obliterated but slill unmistakable 1 forms of tho adobes. The wall, which no doubt was once considered formidable, has crumbled to the shapeless mass of earth which we now see. " Neglect ilntl Time Have marred tiie work of artisan and mason. And UMPM ami I Ides are lost in one long term of stagnant desolation." Thus we have the history of Fort Hill; unimportant, perhaps, in itself, but still to be kept in kindly remem brance for the part which it played when California and Los Angeles were young 111 their political existence. In a few yens Improvement will march over* the spot, and with pick and shovel will obliterate even the few landmarks which now remain. Then, when none of the old inhabi tants are left to tell the story, from such records as this only can fhe peo ple of the busy city know that once above them rose a Fort Hill. THE STATE GRANGE. ltc|>orl of (he Proceedinjrn ot the special Meeting. [From the St. F. Chronicle, Nov. lti.] The State Grunge, which has been holding close session in this city since Thursday last, concluded its delibera tions yesterday. The matter under consideration was the failure of EX B, Morgan's Sons and tlic bearing of that disaster upon the imorests of the Or der. Owing to the secret nature of the proceedings, no report of the re sults attained has heretofore been made public through the press. On application, W. H.

Hamilton, and opened in due form. Present, about two hundred members.

Brother D. H. Arnold moved that v committee of live be elected by the Grunge on Good of tho Order. Car ried. The following named Brothers were elected as such committee: I). Innian, W. Estell, R. G. Dean, J. W. Kearney, Wm. Sims. The Worthy Master then stated that expert* had been engaged to investi gate tlit! books of E. E. Morgan's Sons and would report the exact condition with the Patrons. Tiie whole day was occupied in dis cussing the condition of affairs and the business projects for future opera tions. On motion adjourned till 9 A. M. to morrow. Friday, Nov. 13—9 A. M. Grange convened pursuant to ad journment, und was opened in due form. The Worthy Master announced that the report of the experts on the books of E. E.

Secondly—A detailed report Of dls bursemcnts, showing how much had been paid to shippers as advnnees; ulso, freight, Insurance and expenses. Thirdly—A detailed report of all persons who hud shipped ami who had not received their advances; also a re* port of all who had checks which were not paid on presentation at the bunks. The expert was then called in before the ussemblugv and was questioned upon ull the details of the investiga tions. The chief book - keeper was also sent for and brought into the Grange anil questioned Upon the de tails of the business and the books. The report was then taken up and examined, which showed conclusively that not a single dollar had been dis honestly applied or appropriated to other than legitimate purposes and on motion was adopted. The following preamble and resolu tions were presented by Brother Ed. Pallet: Whereas, The last meeting of thu State Grange in Stockton passed, unanimously, a resolution indorsing the course of Brother Waleott, of the house of E. E. Morgan's Sons, there by causing much adverse newspaper comment; and WHEBEAB, After careful examina tion, the course of that brother and of the Executive Committee has been fully sustained by a searching exam ination of the books of the firm by experts and by personal examination of the parties in open Grange; there fore, Resolved, That we offer our sympa thy to Brother Waleott in his lute misfortune and repeat and reiterate our endorsement of the integrity of the course pursued by him. Resolved, That we have full confi dence in the capacity and integrity of our Executive Committee. Which, on motion, were unani mously adopted by a rising vote of the Grange.

Mr. Baxter, on behalf of the Order, wishes to announce that the report which appeared iv the Call of yester day, slating that an assessment of $5 per capita is to be levied upon the Grangers of the Stute to make good the losses of those who have lost upon their shipments, is entirely without foundation.
