The HERALD is in receipt of a copy
ofthe annual report upon the "Sur
veys and Harbor Improvements in
California," with the compliments of

ness of that gentlemen the Herald

view all facts of importance relative

County Physician's Report.
From tlie report made to the Board
of Supervisors, by Dr. J. P. Widney,
physician in charge of the l.os Ange
les County Hospital, for the three
months ending on the ."Ist of Decem
ber, IS7-1, the following items are
taken:
During the quarter 51 males and six
females were admitted to the hos
pital, and 75 males and 10 females
were under treatment during that
period. During the quarter 10 pt
tients died and 37 were cured and dis
charged, leaving 38 patients in the
hospital on the Ist of January, 1875.
The causes of death during the
quarter were as follows: Alcoholism,
1; paralysis, 2; phthisis, 4; aneurism,
1; inflammation of the bowels, 1; fever,
typho-malarial, 1.
Besides the cases admitted to the
hospital, a great many others have
been furnished medicines, aud medi
cal attendance, free, on condition that
they should furnish their own board.
Several cases, sent here directly
from the hospitals of other counties,
have been received for a few days, and
then furnished transportation to carry
them back to the counties where they
belong and are entitled to support. In
no case, however, has a citizen of this
county been sent away to become a
burden to another county.
At various times persons have ap
plied for admission to the hospital,
saying that they were citizens of Santa
Barbara county, but that when they
applied for relief in their own county
they were told that tliere was no pub
lic hospital in Santa Barbara county,
and that they must shift for them
selves. These poor persons told the
county physician, at the hospital
here, that they knew they hail no
claim upon Los Angeles county, but
that unless this county would charita
bly care for them, they would have to
die in the fields. From no other
county than Santa Barbara have such
complaints ever come. San Diego,
San Bernardino, Inyo—all care for
their own sick.
Many persons come here sick, remain
long enough to give them legal citi
zenship, and then apply for admission
to the County Hospital. This is a
manifest injustice for which it is dilli
cult to see a remedy. Some State leg
islation is much needed upon these
points, it is not just that one county
should bear the legitimate burdens of
another, because that other refuses to
do its duty toward its own indigent,
suffering citizens.
Tho Mines in Inyo County.
An old prospector gives tlie follow
ing particulars of the buried treasures
of Inyo county; and when the railroad
from Los A n gel es to Independence is
built, this entire region, so rich iv
mineral wealth, will be tributary to
tliis city:
Between Cerro Gordo and Panamint
have jus) been discovered the most re
markable deposits of carbonate ores
ever heard of. Panamint is " no
where" in comparison witli these new
discoveries, and the excitement over
them will be immense In the Spring.
The old miners in Inyo county are
wild with joy, and well may they feel
exultant, for In a bolt of less than 100
miles lies the Eclipse mining prop
erty, near Independence) held iv Lon
don, England, and valued tit $2,000,000;
then there is Cerro Gordo, with the
Union mine, the owners of which re
fused $1,50(1,(1(10, and two other mines
in Cerro GordO, bold in New York, of
equal value with the Union; of the
Panamint region, with its many val
uable mines, and its thousands of
miners already on the ground, all are
acquainted; quicksilver discoveries Of
great richness are daily being made;
antl/.lastly, these new mines at Coso,
richer and more extensive and more
accessible than any. Well may Inyo
county lay claim to being tbe richest
mineral county in the State.
The California Immigrant Union.
The report of the operations during
the year 1871 of tlie Immigrant Union
will be a favorable one, although its
operations were seriously curtailed by
the failure to secure an appropriation
from the State. The California Re
porter, just received, says:
Tlie business has been conducted
with Commendable energy by the Gen
eral Agent, W. H. Martin, who has
succeeded in disseminating ti wonder
ful amount of Information concerning
our resources, ' and the advantages
which California offers to men not
afraid to labor, At tlie olliee of the
Union, California street, just below
Kearney, the inquirer will always
meet a cordial welcome, and every fa
cility aflorded to aid in his selection
of such a location as his means or in
clination may prompt. Largely by
the influence ofthe Union, and its fa
cilities for sending information to
every portion of our coast, the recent
subdivision and sale of the Lompoc
Rancho was effected; and it is now
engaged in a similar, enterprise In
connection with the Centinela and
Sausul Redondo Ranches, six miles
west of Los Angeles, by Which 25,000
acres of land will be cut up into small
farms, and placed at prices easily com*
passen by men of small means. The
first auction sale of property will take
place on the 15th of February, 1875.

The Late Silver Discoveries.
One of the HERALD'S many friends
ill San Fernando sends us the follow
ing particulars concerning the late
discoveries of silver quarts in that
section, witli the promise of "sonic
thing still more startling" at an early
day:
San Fernando, Jan. 4th.
EDITOR HrRALD! Our prospecting
for cinnabar in this locality lias result
ed in the discovery of an exceedingly
rich deposit of silver-bearing rock
within twenty-live miles of Sau Fer
nando, 'flic ledge runs northeast by
southwest, and shows croppings in
that direction some 6,600 feet, while
it measures 1,200 feet in width. From
tests made to-day, by smelting in an
ordinary crucible, quite a large quan
tity of pure silver was obtained.
Some persons here of experience be
lieve tlie ore will assay $5(10 per ton;
others have placed it at $1,000. Noth
ing accurate can be given until an
assay of the ore is made. You may
expect to hear of something Startling
then.
The Cinnabar Discoveries.
The following communication to
the HERALD needs no words of expla
nation:
Lyons' Station, Jan. 4th.
EDITOR HERALD: Having just re
turned from a highly successful tour,

With ('apt. Kraszynski of this place,
and knowing that at all times the

the latest and most complete intelli
gence concerning the development of
the immense mineral deposits in this
county, 1 forward to you the following
information regarding the wonderful
discoveries of cinnabar lately made iv
tlie San Fernando region. Tlie ledge
in question bad been discovered and
located by the Captain some time
since, but upon re inspection and pros
pecting to-day, the immensity and
richness of the claims gave the hope
that another "Almadeii" has been
found. Parties at the station who ex
amined the ore antl contrasted the
same with some of the best specimens
of New Almadeii and Quiett Sabe,
pronounced the Captain's, specimens
far richer than either. The new dis
coveries have caused the Captain to
withdraw from all negotiations that
are now pending for tlie sale of part of
his Claims. A tunnel will be sunk
immediately, in order to further de
velop it. Plenty of wood and gootl
water to be had right on the grounds.

Wm. H. Martin, General Agent California
Immigrant Union—Dear Sir:—l havejust vis
ited tho "Centinela and Sausal Redondo"
Hancho, and driven over the land described lv
your advertisement. With all my experience
In the southern part of California, I have seen
nothing to surpass thistractin fertility of soil,
beauty Of location, and advantage of easy ac
cess snd salubrity of climate. Fnrpurposesof
colonization, I know of no large body of land
so near a growing commercial centre, In Cali
fornia or elsewhere, CO equal It. No part of it
is unavailable for farms, orchards or home
si ends. It can ho subdivided Into lots ranging
from five acres to several hundred acres and
every acre of it can he 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
nourishes In Eos Angeles or Santa Barbara
counties. It Is my confident opinion that the
value of shares In thiß magnificent tract will ,
be quadrupled within two years—such Is tho
extraordinary Influx ot Immigration to the
vicinity of Los Angeles at tho present time.
Wishing you success in your undertaking,
I am, very truly yours, J. Hoss Bbownk.
