A force of thirty men is now on hatni to commence work on the new wharf extension at Wilmington. The schooner Uncle Ham, Captain Hopkins, sailed yesterday, morning for Han Francisco, via Hueneme. The Knights of Pythias iii Han Diego have lost by death a brother Knigh», E. A. Veazie. There Is a message at the Western Union Telegraph Ollice for Hannibal ESd wards. It'you desire to purchase the best piatios for the lowest prices go to Pat rick's, No. 00 Spring street, and buy a Decker, Dunham or Emerson piano. The Sunday Hchool of the Episcopal ('butch will have a Christmas tree on the Monday evening following Christ mas. Mr. J. P. Kerr, of the Han Francisco (Jail, is on a visit to our city. He is well pleased with our lively business appearance. Rev,'A. M.Campbell has recovered his horse, which was stolen from him some time ago. Tbe saddle which went with the animal is not forth coming. Tbe Wilmington Kuterprine says that two elegant new passenger coaches have jiHt been completed in the company's workahips in that, place and will probably be put upon the tine to-day. Judge Gibbs and Mr. L. M. Holt have moved their office from No. 41 Temple Block to Allen's building, No. lji Spring I street, first floor. They have a pleasant location und commodious quarters, Little Mae'j minstrels played ton crowded house last, night.

Kelleher, of tho new firm of Moore & Kelleher, purveyors and civil engineers, was the late Division En gineer of the Texas Division of the Texas and Pacific Railway. lie was also a Captain in tlie U. H. Engiueer Corps. Such men are sure to do good service, locate where they may. Mr. John Huntei living near Ana heim, writes us that lie has found a stray pointer dog (or spaniel) liver colored. The animal is a good eater with steadily increasing appetite, and Mr. Hunter wishes to deliver him to tlie owner as soon as possible. Mr. McComas, the Manager of the Immigration and Land Co-operative Association, will commence active operations in the affairs of the com pany to-morrow. His office is with Mr. L. M.

The members aud friends of the Congregational Sunday School will have the childrens' Christmas Tree on Wednesday evening December 23d, at Good Templars' Hall. There will be music, refreshments and entertain ments for young and old. All are in vited. Admission free. The Inyo Independent sivys that the recent discoveries in tlie new Coso dis trict are simply enormous in their ex tent and value. These mines are forty miles southeast of the foot of Owens Lake, seven miles east of tho Inde pendence and Panamint stage road, and about eight miles west of the head of Darwin Caftan. They are easily accessible by wagon. Mr. McComas, one of our most sub wtantial and progressive farmers, has just imported two thoroughbred Jer sey bulls, six months old, valued at $100 each. These are the first of the Jersey breed ever imported into Los Angeles county. Our farmers would make money by following the exam ple which Mr. McComas has set for them. Dr. Brenan's free lecture at Turn- Verein Hall to-nigjit will doubtless attract a large audience. The subject —"The Human Mind and ita Influ ences upon the Body"—is one of great interest and it will be treated by the Doctor in his own original and pun gent style, richly repaying all who hear him. Go early, if you expect to secure a seat. The editor or the Inyo Independent hus gone into the show business. His first effort is thus chronicled by his own paper: "Our Senior's first appear ance on any stage as an acrobat, trapezist or grand and lofty tumbler, occurred upon his recent trip to Pana mint,when, as the stage was ascending oue of the grades in that region, hp attempted a gallant leap into space in order to save his bacon from what he supposed was an upsetting stage. Mis calculating his ability to manage his pedal extremities, however, he man aged to gracefully land all in a heap among the horses' heels, tbe wagon .tongue, double-trees and things. But the stage maintained its equilibrium, aud Mr. C. fiuaily arrived safely in Panamint, as we learu from the News. Our informant states that it was a close call. As will be seen by a notice pub lished to-day, Major Beaudry has transferred his office from tho city building where it bus been heretofore to No. 13, New High street. Thos. H. Vale, a ranchero, was pass ing quietly along IjOs Angeles street yesterday minding his own business, when oue James Girk rusheil out of a saloon and grievously beat and mal treated him, thereby interfering with his peace of mind and ease of body. ThOS the Inoffensive Mr. Yale com plains to Justice Gray, and the other half of the story will be elicited to morrow. Messrs. Fisher & Thatcher are lead ing off In fine style in the holiday jewelry trade. Their gale for yester day alone summed up well towards a thousand dollars. Still there is a mag nificent stock left for all to choose from who wish to make Christinas or New Year's presents. Everything from a silver thimble to a thousand dollar diamond can be found at their store, and all Warranted tbe best of the kind in the market. Call on Fisher & Thatcher and look over their stock when you have ati hour's leisure. It will well repay the timeandattention, Whether you purchase or not. Religious Services To-Day.

The projected railroad uuder the management of the Centinela Land Company seems to have awakened the former project of tho Truxton landing road, which has been quietly napping for several mouths past. Yes terday a meeting of the prime movers iv the latter enterprise was held attlue United States Land Ofiice. About twenty gentlemen were present who exhibited an active interest in the af fair, and the meeting proceeded in a very business-like mauner to inaugu rate a stock company .for the work In hand. The name adopted was "Tlie Los Angeles Railroad Com pany." Ex-Mayor J. R. Toberman was chosen President, with Louis Wolfskill Treasurer, J. W. Haverstiek Secretary and a board of seven Direc tors; all of the officers being elected temporarily. Twenty-eight thousand dollars ill stock was promised and a donation of one hundred acres of land lying at the shore end of the line was made to the company by Mrs. Lucas. The capilal stock of the company was fixed at $200,000—a siim which was deemed ample to construct the road and build a wharf at the landing. It has been practically demonstrated that such a wharf extended 1,400 feet would reach a depth of twenty-one feet of water at low tide, thus giving ample accommodations to shippiug. Com mittees were appointed to canvass for subscriptions to stock in the road,con sisting of the following named gentle men: Committee at large, Mr. Weed and John D. Young; for the Third Ward, Los Angeles city, J. R. Tober man and Mr. Haineaj. for the Second Ward, H. D. Barrows and Louis Wolfskill; for the First Ward, Gen oral Uouton. It was decided to in corporate the company at once, and the necessary articles ready drafted were submitted to the meeting. We hope that the "Los Angeles Railroad" will prove a success. It is in the hands of men who have both the nec essary means and enterprise to con struct it, and, being an entirely local road devoted to the interests of Los Angeles as its name implies, tht re is no doubt but that it will receive a strong support from our citizens. Presentation. City Marshal J. J. Carrillo was the recipient of another nattering compli ment from his friends last night. This tims it came in the shape of an elegant gold-plated badge. The affair came oft' at Judge Thompson's ollice where a number of prominent citizens were assembled, and Mr. Carrillo be ing iuvited in, Senator Bush arose, and with a few appropriate remarks, made tho presentation. He expressed the high esteem in which Mr. Car rtllo is held-in Los Angeles, and be lieved that the confidence of the peo ple, as shown in the late election, was not illy bestowed. Mr. Carrillo re sponded with a few words expressive of his gratitude to his friends who had thus chosen t» honor him ami prom ised to be faithful to his trust. The badge was pinned to its place by the Marshal's aged father, whp was pres ent and delivered some sound parental advice suited to the occasion. Mr. J. J. Thomas then followed with a little speech of congratulation, after which the company adjourned to convenient quarters and drauk to tlie health of all concerned. The badge is a very tasty and elegant piece of workmanship. It Is In the form of ashield.bearihgon its face in enameled engraving the words " Los Angeles City Marshal," and on the reverse, " Presented to J. J. Carrillo by his friends; Los Ange es.Dec. 19th, 1874." [Written for the HERALD.] TO -.

[Selected for Sunday's HERALD.] OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Ovor and over again, No matter which way I turn, I ulways find In the book of life Some lesson I liuvc to learn. I must take my turn at the mill, 1 must grind out tlie golden grain, I must work out my tusk with a resolute will, Over and over again. Wo cannot measure the need Of even tho tiniest (lower, Nor chock the flow of the golden sands That run through a single hour; But the morning dews must lull, Ami tho sun and the Hummer rain Must do their part, and perform it all Over and over again. Over und ovor again Tlie brook through tho meadow flows, And ovor and over again The ponderous mill w heel goes. Once going will not suffice, Though doing be not in vain; And a blessing failing us otuv or twice May come it we try again. The path that has once been tro.l Is never so rough to I ho feel; And the lesson wo once have I ariied Is never so hard to repeat, Though sorrowful tears must full. And Ihe heart to its depths be riven Willi storm and tempest, we n erf them all To render us meet lor heuvi-n. Occident. Allegory and Story. Dean Stanley, in an address at the unveiling of the statue of John Bun yan, alter quoting Lord Macaulay's statement that, the seventeenth cen tury only produced two men of orig inal genius, John Milton and John banyan, went on to say that theie were only two prose works of univer sal popularity in the Whole of E.iglish literature. These are the Pilgrim's Progress, written by a Baptist preach er, a non-conformist, and Robinson Crusoe, by a Presbyterian journalist, and dissenter. The reverend speaker thought Pilgrim's Progress to be "ono of the six books," and equal with any of the six, that, after the English Bible, have contributed to the com mon religious culture of the Anglo- Saxon race. It is also about the only English book that has succeeded in identifying religious instruction with tbe entertainment and amusement of both old aud young. A busy, useful, holy life, and none other, is a lfe of well-doing; is a noble life, though passed in a cottage, is a happy one, though its path be rough and thorny. In a world where there is much to do, there is little time for self-enjoyment, and no time for sinful ones. Like a toil-worn laborer, weary in, though not of his work, the Chris tian may sometimes wish it were con cluded, and long for sunset that he might leave the field to go home; yet toiling and enduring, bearing others burdens as well as his own, living not for himself, regarding every day as lost which is not marked by some good done, and regarding himself as the steward of God's bounty—not a lord but a laborer iv the vineyard —that man, though he may be weary in, will not be weary of well-doing.— Bowman. Things that Last. Let us now look at those things that "will never wear out." I have often heard a poor blind girl sweetly sing, "Kind words will never die." Ah! we believe that these are among the things that "will never wear out." And we are told in God's own book to be " kind to one another, tender - hearted, forgiving ono an other." The word of the Lord will never wear out. Though the grass shall wither and the flowers fall away, the word of the Lord endureth forever. (1 Peter, i. 24, 25.) The life of the righteous will never wear out. They will live in the world to come as long as God shall live; but the death of the wicked will last for ever. The joys of the Kingdom of Heaven will never wear out. The people of this world soon die; but the enjoy ments of thafworld will never end. The crown of glory will never wear out. The crown of the winner in the Olympic games soon faded; the crown of kings all wear out; but the crown of glory will never fade away. (1 Pe ter, v. 4.J The "new song" will never wear out. We hear sometimes that some of our tunes are worn threadbare; but that will never be said of the new song. Which will you choose—the lasting or that which wastes away ? The things of time or of eternity ? Will you choose wealth, honor, fame or the joys of heaven, eternal life, the crown of glory and the "new song?" May God enable you to make a wise choice; and, with Joshua, may we choose to serve the Lord.— Christiaii Treasury. A Curious Incident. As tbe cars from one of our branch depots were about to leave for the city the other day the signal was given to start and tho steam turned on with full force, but the train refused to move and curiosity was great for a time to Hud the cause. At hist it was ascer tained that a bottle of the famous housekeeper's cement had been broken on the track and stuck the wheels fast to the rails. They were at last sep arated and the train departed, and on its arrival iv town the rush to the Dollar Store for a bottle of that cement was tremendous. There are a few botf ties left. dei.o 3t* How is it thai tlie People* I'ulace is k<> popular with the ptihEc ?
