The Enterprise of the 10th gives the following report of the shipping busi ness at Wilmington during the week: Four steamers and a number of sail vessels have discharged their freights. The travel also continues very large. There have been 400 passengers and 1,200 tons of freight landed. Every public-spirited citizen should attend the mass meeting to be held at the Court House at 2 o'clock this af ternoon for the furtherance of the In dependence Railroad project. The meeting will be addressed by some of (be most prominent men of Los An geles, San Bernardino and Inyo coun ties and Mr. Crawford will exhibit maps and give explanations regarding the proposed line. He was the last man that we would have suspected of such a thing; but he has "done gone and done it." At the residence of Dr. MacDougall, on Thursday evening, Mr. Sidney Lacey was married to Miss Concepcion Wil liams, both of this city. Mr. Lacey is one of the most popular young mer chants of Los Angeles, and the bride no less a favorite in social circles and highly connected. The Herald is under obligations for wine and wed ding cake. The demand for business houses in Los Angeles is greater than ever be fore known. Eligible locations are scarcely to be had at all and when a new building is erected or an old one vacated the store-rooms are engaged months before. Mr. Temple's new building adjoining the Herald office was leased as soon as the plans were drawn; also, Mr. Ducommon's build ing on the corner of Main and Com mercial streets, now in course of erec tion. Many firms have taken stands in out-of-the-way places and await an opportunity to remove to a main street as soon as a room can be se cured. We believe that if tweaty business houses could be erected here this Winter in good locations, they would all find ready occupants. Here is a remunerative field for our capital ists to work in. New Wharf at Wilmington. We are looking for work to begin every day on tho new wharf. The machinery, material and men, we be lieve, are on hand, and the arrange ments are nearly perfected. The new wharf will be a continuation of the old one, about a thousand feet west ward along the channel. This will give, including both wharves, about I.bOO feet frontage, which will furnish ample accommodations for many small vessels that have heretofore been compelled to anchor and await their turn at lighterage.— Enterprise. The Los Angeles and Pacific Railway. A meeting of tho Directors of our latest formed railroad project was held on Thursday evening. The matter was thoroughly canvassed and made to assumo a tangible shape which points strongly to its speedy execu tion. The proposed railroad is to run from Los Angeles, through the Centi nella Rancho, to the nearest point on the coast, a distance of twelve miles. It is claimed that this will he two miles shorter than the proposed "Shoo Fly" route and will also reach a point on the coast much better adapted to the construction of a wharf and the accommodation of shipping. The capital stock of the corny any is fixed at $500,000 ; but $100,000 is deemed sufficient to construct the road and wharf. The latter sum only will be collected on the stock. The plan of building the road is that recom mended by Engineer Crawford for the Los Angeles and Independence Rail road. The ties are to be laid down six feet apart, mortised to receive a string er six by eight inches, laid flatwise and securely spliced and pinned to a broad tie under each joint. These stringers will be covered with heavy strap - iron and the whole buried, so that tin; top or rail surface will be slightly raised above the back-filling. Such a road-bed, in Mr. Crawford's opinion, would rot out longdefore it would wear out, and it would last as long as ordi nary railroad ties and could be readily and cheaply renewed. It is proposed to operate the road with light rolling stock and six-ton engines. The wharf to be built on the coast is to be extended one thousand feet into the water where a depth of thirty feet will be secured—am pie to accommodate any vessel which sails along the coast. One-third of the amount necessary to construct the road and wharf has been already promised and the rest will doubtless be forthcoming as soon as the stock hooks are opened. The project is in the hands of men who possess ample wealth and enterpiise, and there is no room for a doubt of its completion. The Directors of the road are the same as the managers of the Centinela Colony. Their object, of course, is to improve the value of the property lying at the coast end of the line, which they will soon throw upon the market; but, at the same time they will accomplish a great good for Los Angeles and take an important step towards making our city tlie rail road center and metropolis of South ern California. Another Paper. The Los Angeles Immigration and Land Co-operative Association recent ly formed in our city, believing in the eflicacy of printer's ink in any busi ness enterprise, have wisely concluded to publish a paper of their own. The sheet is to be called The Neiv Italy. It will be a four-page paper with six col umns to the page—nearly the size of the Daily Heuald. Five thousand copies are to be issued monthly, and arrangements are being made to dis tribute them on every passenger and emigrant train that leaves Omaha, westward bound; also on the steamers leaving San Francisco for Southern California and on the steamers sailing from New York for Aspinwall. A large number of the papers will be circulated through our own county, to be sent East by individuals who may have friends desirous of knowing something about our country, and the paper will also be sent to the principal hotels of the Pacific Coast and to such places East as will bring it before the largest number of readers. It will thus be made an excellent advertising medium, not only for our city and county together with the lauds of the association, but for real estate dealers generally and all who bave property for sale. The New Italy will be issued from the Herald office. A full supply of ma terial has been ordered from San Fran cisco for it make-up and it is designed if possible to have the first number printed by the 25th of this month. Any further information regarding the publication can be obtained at the office of L. M. Holt—the Secretary of the Association—No. 41 Temple Block. Presentation. There was a pleasant gathering of the friends of Mr. J. J. Carrillo and Emil Harris at the Fashion Saloon last night. The occasion was devoted to the presentation of a token of re gard from Mr. Harris to his late suc cessful opponent in the political con test. The present consisted of a silver mounted revolver of tho Webley pat ent, with sheath and belt. It was presented with a neat little speech from the donor, aud Mr. Carrillo re sponded with a few remarks expressive of his gratification at the kindly feel ing thus expressed. In this very commendable way the two rival can didates, who waged such a hard fought battle at the polls last Monday, shook hands over the "bloody chasm" and declared an amnesty. After the presentation, many bumpers were drank to the health of our Marshal elect, and his no less deserving friend Harris. The affair was altogether most agreeable and we commend it as an example for other political oppon ents to follow. A Lesson in Adjectives. " Well, my son, you have got into grammar, have you ?" said a proud sire to his thickest chip the other night. " Let me hear you compare some adjectives." Chip—"All right, dad; little, less, least; big, bigger, beast; mow, more most." Proud Sire—"Hold on, sir; that is not right; you " Chip—"Toe, tore, toast; snow, snore, snout; go, gore, gout; row, roar, rout " Proud Sire— "Stop, I say; those ad jectives " Chip—"Drink, drank, drunk; chink, chunk,chunk " Proud Sire—"You infernal little fool! What in thunder- " Chip—"Bet. better, best; wood, wet ter, west; bad, wusser, wust; bile, biler, bilerbust; sew, sewer, sun; pew, pewer, pup—ouch! oh! geminy, dad! o-o-O!'^ The outraged parent had broken up the recitation with a bootjack. According to an Auburn paper they are going to put up in that city an ad dition to the r seminary, " to accom modate eighty-six students 200 feet long." NOTES BY THE WAY. To VtMBIM In November- So. 2. The close of my previous notes left us at the Italian's house, where there was warmth and good cheer and where we were served with excellent fare. In the morning we set out for " Hite's Cove." In going there we passed over a long grade and when nearly to the bottom of the mountain we came to a ware house and then the road ends and a trail begins. After leaving Hite's Cove we followed a very steep trail up the mountains again for a long distance and then ob tained a magnificent view. As we wound down the other side of this mountain, our whole attention was taken in looking at the scenery, lis tening to the birds and the waters of the Merced river below. Our trail lies along this river until we get into the valley. At times our narrow path winds around high blufl's hun dreds of feet high and the same below. It bogan to grow dark and we were getting hungry and tired. A com fortable hotel would at that moment have been more welcome than the great white cliffs that no doubt are very good. We knew the hotel was not far off and the stable man said the mule knew every step and would go straight to it. Strangely, we passed the toll-house without noticing it or being noticed, 80 great was our anxi ety to get on. At last we reached the hotel, where we had an excellent sup per, though a late one. The next morning I was up bright and early to explore the valley. I rec ognized all the prominent objects of interest at once, having seen numer ous photographic views of them. There was "Sentinel Rock" above the hotel, the "Three Brothers" and the "Yosemitc Falls" opposite, and down the valley "El Capitan," "Three Graces," "Cathedral Rocks" and "Three Sisters." I was dazzled with the beauty of the scene, it was so much grander than I had dreamed of. Fol lowing a branch of the Merced, we came to Mirror Lake, in whose waters are reflected "The South Dome," the grandest clifl* of all, " Washington Column," "Mt.Watkins" and "Clouds Rest." Strangely, the reflections seemed grander than the originals— owing, I suppose, to the fact that dis tances looking down seem greater than above us. We found a clumsy boat on the lake, nearly full of water; but by bailing it out we got it fairly afloat and rowed up the lake some distance. A dog that followed us from the hotel swam after us, not liking to stay on the bank alone, though the water was icy cold. After rowing some time we thought we would see what we could do afoot, although the ground was cov ered with snow; but we found walking difficult, and went back to the boat arid floated along for a time with the current, which was quite swift. Re turning to our starting point, we thought we would try tlie experiment of a bath in the lake, it was so clear and beautiful. Yes, it was cold; but we made a rousing (Ire on Hie shore. We spent nearly a day on and around the lake. I shall not attempt to de scribe what so many have attempted and failed, but 1 shall ever remember the beauiy of Mirror Lake and its re flections. Returning to where the Merced branches, we visited Mr. Lemon's garden and obtained some line apples, nearly every one of which weighed a pound, which he had laid by for the tourists of next Summer. It was late when we returned to the hotel. On the way we met some bright, healthy children that were raised in the val ley. Before I returned I went to the foot of the falls to look up and try to realize their immense height. The next morning after breakfast we set out again on our explorations. We started for "Glazier Point," trav eling along the side of a cliffa long distance. At last we got into snow four feet deep anil lost the trail, but we were determined to obtain a view from Sentinel Dome. We knew the direction and trudged on, but every step brought us up to our waists in snow, and the mountains were steep. By spreading out our coats on the snow and moving on our hands and feet over it we managed to progress, though slowly; but we were paid for all our trouble in line views from difterent poin£s on the way. Coming down was not so easy as we thought it would be. Such a time as we had sinking into the snow and get ting out again! Sliding down was not a success, for I tried it. Attempting to hurry, I landed on my head several times. Oh, this would have been a charming walk if it had not been for the snow. The view was ever chang ing as we descended. In the afternoon I started on my homeward way. How I longed to stay longer! there were so many objects of interest. The ride back was delight ful. I saw the beautiful Bridal Veil aud Cascades again, and El Capitan towering up so high that large pines on it looked like shrubs. On my re turn I met the toll-man that I had passed, and he thought me a guide. Well, really, my clothes looked as though I had been some time in the mountains. As I descended a mist rose and gave everything a strange appearance below. There seemed to be islands and trees away oft'in space and I came near stepping onto noth ing several times. At last we reached a harbor of safety for the night. In the morning we passed a train of burros packed with eatables for persons in the valley. Each animal carries about 250 pounds. Tho mine near Hite's Cove is said to be rich. There is a tun nel here 1,500 feet long and an upright shaft 900 feet deep. These it has taken live years to dig. There is a twenty stamp mill and forty men at work here. The trail by way of Hite's Cove and up the Merced is passable two or three months earlier than any other one. I have wondered that it is not traveled more by tourists. Aftersomo trifling incidents on the way,l reached San Francisco safely, having been absent a little over a week. Ready. A quartz mill is being erected at Bear Valley, San Bernardino county. It is stated that Chinese will be em ployed in it, and the Argus says that if that is the intention of the owners, it believes and hopes that the white men will band together and drive the Chinese oft. The Humboldt Times, of December sth, says that not far from 18,000,000 feet of logs were run to tide water, or where they can be handled at any time, during the late high water. About 6,000,000 of these came down Freshwater, aud 12,000,000 down Elk river. Concrressman Houghton has pre pared a bill to be introduced in Con gress, granting to the city of Han Jose absolute title to pueblo lands, in ac cordance with the decree of the Su preme Court of the United States, as was done in the case of San Francisco.
