CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
SUNDAY DEC. 20, 1874 Tilton announces himself in better health than at any previous time within the past ten years. Still THE ODORE hates HENRY with the cordial intensity of an earnest Christian. Tim Continental Hotel, Philadel phia, pays $160 per year for water. A number of smaller establishments in Eos Augeles pay about 5000 per year for water and don't get it all the time at that. Oi r San Francisco coteniporaries are trying to find out which can print the greatest number of double sheets within a given time. The Call and Chronicle have distanced all compet itors and now sta«d neck and neck. Both are sinking mon-y by the opera tion. The California Alden Fruit Preserv ing Company have been awarded the gold and silver medals of the State Agricultural Society. In noticing this fact we will take the opportunity to say that Mr. Geo, B. Davis, pro prietor of the Alden Fruit Works in this city, yesterday received a letter from one of the largest wholesale grocery firms of San Francisco,stating that the Los Angeles Alden preserved fruit was a superior article to that from any other portion of the State, and readily commanded the highest price in the market. The Alden will open a fine market for all the fruit grown in Eos Angeles valley. T. B. Peterson & Brothers, 300 Chestnut street, Philadelphia, publish this day "The Fair Maid of Perth," by Sir Walter Scott, being the second volume of an entire new edi tion of the Waverly Novels, now in course of publication by them, enti tled " Peterson's Cheap Edition for the Million of the Waverly Novels." Each book is printed from plain, clear type, double column, aud each work is issued complete in one large octavo volume, with a newly illustrated cover on each book, and will be completed in twenty-six volumes, at twenty-five cents each, or five dollars for tlie com plete set. This will be the cheapest as well as the only complete edition of the Waverly Novels published in this country, as it will coutain all the author's notes, as well as all his last corrections ami additions. A full set of the twenty-six volumes will be sent at once, post-paid, by mail, to any one, to any place, on their remitting five dollars to the publishers. At this low price all persons should possess themselves of a full °<>t of tho \V«v*»rl v at once, and we would take this occasion to advise all of our readers to make a remittance of five dollars at ouce, per first mail, toT. B.Peterson & Brothers, Philadelphia, for the twenty-six volumes, who will send them to any oue, at once, free of post age, on receipt of that sum. The "Herald's" Prosperity. The prosperity of the Herald with in the past eight months is unprece dented in California journalism. From almost nothing, the business lias expanded to the utmost capacity of the largest and best appointed job and newspaper ofiice south of San Francisco. Our steam job presses are ruu fourteen of every twenty-four hours, the job-room is always crowded with work and we are doing more and of a superior quality of job work than all the other printing houses in the city, With new type, line presses, steam power and first-class workmen, we are enabled to fill the orders of our patrons in the best style of tlie art and in tlie shortest possible time. Of newspapers alone, there are now printed on the Herald presses, one daily, one semi-weekly, two Weeklies and one monthly. Tlie large Taylor power press, though capable of throw ing otf fifteen huudred impressoins per hour, is taxed to its utmost capac ity with the large editions of these regular publications. To meet this demand upon our press-room, we are preparing to add another large single cylinder press to those already in use. The circulation of the Daily Hmr.vld is already large — nearly or quite dogble that of any other daily pub lished in Southern California—nnd is steadily increasing. It furnishes all the news of the day and each issue contains more reading matter than all the dailies published in the city. Its editorials are intended to bo frank, fair, outspoken and impartial. It is not the purpose of the editor, nor is it expected, that his articles will uiewt the approbation of everybody. The individual or journal that labors with the single object of pleasing everybody possesses neither individ uality, force or distinctive character. An honest, candid opinion may not please and it cannot receive the en dorsement of all, but it is entitled to and receives greater consideration and respect than the non-committal, shilly-shally bosh with which some publishers till their editorial columns. The editor who hews to the line, let the chips fall where they maj', will have readers who will not endorse all or his views, but they will respect his honesty of purpose aud iadei»cndeut position. We had rather have half the world quarreling with our opin ions than to have all the world saying that we were wanting in the manhood and intelligence to have an opinion. The Hekald advocates what it be lieves to be right and just and con demns what In its judgment is wrong and unjust. Its advocacy or denunci ation is never equivocal. It is our aim to so express ourselves that t.ll who read may understand. The Weekly" Herald Is conceded to be the largest and best paper published in Southern California. Its eight pages are filled with news and reliable Information concerning the "New Italy" toward which the steps ot thousands are now turned. The circulation of the Weekly Hkuai.l) now approximates two thousand, and hundreds of copies are mailed each week to subscribers in the Southwestern and Northwestern States. The circulation is so rapidly increasing that we are warranted in saying the next year will enable us to shew an edition of at least four thous and copies. Cause of Idolatry. It is a fact universally admitted that man is a religious animal. The ado ration of his heart must be bestowed upon something. There is another fact quite as well established, and that is, that each Individual man will adore that which he believes to be greatest —.that which possesses most power &*ud able to bestow or communicate the greatest good. Consequently the worship of the Creator has ever been most common among mankind, be cause the power to create carries with it tho Idea of the power to bless, and to do all things. For this reason the savage tribes of earth nearly all worship a great spirit, who they sup pose controls the destiny of man. It is an acknowledged principle of phil osophy that the mind of man is so constituted that he is compelled by the very law of his being, not only to worship that which he considers the greatest and noblest, but he will of necessity assimulate his own charac ter as much as possible, to the charac ter of the object or being he worships. "We lay down these as facts, though stated in the simplest manner possi ble, which are universally acknowl edged. With these facts as abasia, we can very redily discern the cause of idolatry and trace it through all ages to the same source. The savage in his native wilds is less idolatrous than the more cultivated, or as we term the more civilized. Tlie reason Is obvi ous. When he stands upon his native mountain top and views creation around him he sees a world teeming with life and beauty. Tlie scene to him is grand and there is a conscious ness within him that declares these all to he the work of a great Creator. At once he lifts his heart and pours out his devotion to that Great Spirit. From what he can see of the laws that gv crn-the world he concludes that this Great Spirit has something to do with the affairs and destiny of mankind. This (Stan* OfitmH .'o acknowledged to be the governor or ruler of the world, and the character of the savage is formed by his idea of the nature of this great ruler. In re gard to the formation of character the same principle holds good with all classes and grades of humanity. As men or nations ascend in the scale of intelligence and science their ideas of Deity change, and the change is in variably enstamped on their charac ter. When science takes a material istic turn, pantheism is the natural result. The scientists of to-day are teaching naturalism. Plants and ani mals, brute and human are taken to be all one, evolution causing the dif ference. Plants are endowed with in telligence and the ape is the father of man, and all are to end in dust. Nature la God continuously as the most, in-most of all life. Will they not soon plead, " What harm if peo ple fall clown and worship nature, or some portion of it, as the heathens do, and erect altars to gods that can be seen and known?" This speculative paganism, if continued, must end in pagan idolatry. The scientists of to day have made but few, if any, new discoveries. The Egyptians taught very nearly the same materialistic doctrines four thousand years ago, the effect of which was seen in the char acter of the Israelites as long as the generation which was brought out of Egypt lived. They were so imbued with the materialistic views that they were taught in Egypt and were glad to give their richest treasures to make a visible golden calf to fall down and worship. The invisible, unknown God of Moses was not tangible; all the science of Egypt could not com prehend him. They must have a god that science could not demonstrate. They had been taught that the cow was the superior of all animals and nearest allied to man, and that gold was more valuable and controlled the affairs of mankind more than all metals; hence a calf made of gold was the proper object for man to worship. We can only conjecture as to the first idol that will grace the altar of the scientific materialist of this genera tion. Doubtless gold will enter largely into its composition.

Villagrana, of Dower California, says a commission is on the way from the City of Mexico to establish a system of land laws, holding out superior in ducements to settlers. ■ ■ ■-— i —' i Cessation of Indian Troubles.

[Continued from yesterday.] Wf have a railroad running across tlie country iv the northerly !>:■.rt of its territory. One is projected am] partly huilt across the Southern bor der. Tt is a work of such magnitude that the prospect of its being com pleted in a reasonable purioil of time, if ever, without tha aid of the whole people, acting through the Severn* ment. is not hopeful, and t he quest ion now presents itself to the people and more especially to those devoted to farming and agricultural pursuits than ' any other, Is it for the interest 6T tbe nation, for that of the farmers and ag riculturists generally, that this assist ance should be rendered ? The difference in the climate und character of the country over whidi the two routes pass are almost as op posite as could be imagined. Ihe one, cold in Winter and hot iv Bummer, covered with snow at one Beaton and drenched with rain at another, and having its requisite number of streams to carry ort' the superabundance Of water, which are crossed by bridges and culverts, continually exposed to damage by Hoods and heavy rains, tlie washing away of eHbsnkftlotitsj the freezing and thawing of tiie road-bed, together with the greater wear and tear, cost and delay iv operating a road of high grades and sharp curves, are items which amount annually to a much greater sum than the interest upon the money expeuded in the con struction and Stocking of the road. The 3:2 d parallel route is free from cold and snow, unexposed to the dam aging effects from the freezing and thawing of the road-bed, with minor extremes of heat and cold. The amount of rain-fall is Inconsiderable, consequently but little or no damage is to be suffered by the washing away of bridges, culverts or embankments. No part of the route lias a high alti tude, but runs over extensive plains, giving a low aggregate of ascents and descents and without high grades, the wear and tear of the road ami the cost of the propelling power will all be so much less than upon the present road, that the rate of freights and fares and the length of time In transit may be greatly lessened and still leave the operating of the road a profitable bus ness. Most of the delays and expenses caused by obstructions constantly re curring upon the northern route, will be avoided on the more southern one. From the shores of the Pacific to the Mississippi river or a maritime port in Texas, there are but two rivers of magnitue, both of which would be crossed far down their courses, which is of no inconsiderable importance. The products of the soil can be trans ported with greater ease and less cost In proportion to distance in the direc tion of the flow of the rivers of a country than in the opposite direc tion. Thus, a railroad along the32d parallel, crossing the rivers at right angles and near their mouths, will drain the country of its products with greater ease and at less cost than one traversing the country near the sources of its rivers and streams. While it is undisputed that in tlie past,railway corporations and specula tors in tiie Construction ol* railways Lave overreached the people and the Government and have unjustly drawn large sums of money from the people, it does not follow that for that cause the Government should henceforward abstain from aiding und assisting in pie for their welfare and which, with out such assistance, must be iiulifi nitely postponed. Such is not tho policy that guides individuals. No man oi energy folds his arms and sub sides into inactivity because he has been overreached, swindled or cheated by a competitor or employe. It only serves to stimu late him to greater care and watch fulness. His experience serves as a beacon in his future course. Ho, I conceive, it should be with the people, acting through their Government. If in the past they have been de frauded, instead of supinely turning their backs toward great and beneficial enrerprises, they should be only the more ready to engage in them; as, from their past experience, they have acquired a knowledge of the snags and quicksands which lie in the way and are better prepared to avoid them in the execution of similar enterprises. If those who have been entrusted with tlie powers of the Government have been deceived and outwitted in tlie past, they have that experience to guide and direct them in the future, so that they are'better able to guard and protect tlie interests of the people. If the people have been deceived and defrauded by those to whom they have entrusted the Government, this dere liction of duty by their agents should operate as an incentive to stimulate the people to bestow that care and the exercise of that sound judgment in se lecting to whom is committed the management of the affairs of the na tion, so as to insure an honest and eflicient discharge of those duties. It would be a humiliating fact, if such should be proven, and one which would destroy all faith in our form of Government, that the people are in competent or unable to select proper agents to manage the business of Gov ernment; but I am far from harboring a belief in the existence of such a fact. An intelligent man finds no insupera ble difficulty in making a bargain or a contract in such a form and manner as will leave little or no room for decep tion and non-performance. And what any intelligent man can do, moat cer tainly can be accomplished by a hun dred or more intelligent persons. There are not wanting among twenty millions of men a few hundred of honest, upright and competent citi zens, who might be selected and sent into the Congress of the United States, if such men are not to be found there at present, who could readily frame a law, contract or act of incorporation, by the operation of which this great and needful enterprise could be ac complished without much, if any, risk of the peoples being defrauded. I believe in the power of tho Grange organization of the country not only to secure the aid of the Government for the immediate construction of this great commercial highway, but to de vise and direct tiie mode and manner iv which that assistance «hall be given, without risk or prejudice to the agri cultural, tax-paying citizens of the country.
