The soil is an exceedingly fertile loam, and is, wlthrut exception, the richest and most productive in Southern California. Its vicin ity to the ocean insures a crop Without irriga tion. Excellent wheel has been raised tot tin last two years upon the hills adjoining the ocean. This wheat Held contains 1,000 acres and covers the lightest soil upon the Rancho. There is no alkali or barren land. Semi-Tropical Fruits. There nro a few hearing orange and lime trees upon the Centinela, and the fruit they produce Is of tho largest and finest, quality. There Is an orchard containing 0,000 orange trees three years old, and 1,700 almond, lime and lemon trees. The almond, lime and lemon trees will bear fruit in 1876. The or ange trees will bear In five years. There are 7,000 three-year-old orange trees in the nur sery near tlie orchard, Fig, pepper and gum trees grow without irrigation. Tlie entire or- I chard can be taken care of by three men witli six horses. The orchard will be kept undi vided by the company to save the expense of each shareholder having a few trees to take care of. Kach share will entitle the owner to about 15 trees In the orchard and about the same number in the nursery. The almond, lime and lemon trees will yield an immedi ate return.

Martin, General Agent California Immigrant Union—Dear Sir:—l have Just vis ited the "Centinela and Saucal Redonda" Rancho, and driven over tlie land described In ? 'ouradvertisement. Willi all my experience n the southern part of California, I have seen nothing to surpass thistractin fertility of soil, beauty of location, and advantage of easy ac cess and salubrity of climate. For purposesof colonization, I know Of no large body of land so near a growing commercial centre, in Cali fornia or elsewhere, to equul it. No part of it Is unavailable for farms, orchards or home steads. It can be subdivided into lots ranging from five acres to several hunered acres and every acre of it can be made productive. Water Is abundant and convenient. The land is subject to easy Irrigation; and lean vouch for the fact that It will produce anything that flourishes in Los Angeles or Santa Barbara counties. It Is my confident opinion that the value of shares In this magnificent tract will be quadrupled within two years—such is the extraordinary influx of immigration to the vicinity of Los Angeles at the present time. Wishing you success in your undertaking, I am, very truly yours, J. Ross Bkowkb. , MISCELLANEOUS. FURNJTURE, FURNITURE, FURNITURE.
