The Chamber of Commerce had a called meeting last night, at Judge Sepulveda's Chambers, to protest against any proposed action of Con gress to allow the line of the Southern Pacific Railroad to be so changed as to leave the city of Los Angeles thirty miles or more to the west. Present, Mr. Lazard in the chair, ane Messrs. Widney, Hewitt, Barrows, Caswell, Brodrick, Lord, Downey and Meyer. After the President had staled the purpose of fhe meeting, Mr. Hewitt said that tbo citizens iiad no reason to fear that the Southern Paciiic Railroad Company desired to build their road contrary to its agreement with the city. The :?;>77,000 bonds given to the company by Los Angeles are valueless unless its agreement with the city and county was complied with. The com pany is working to fulfil its contract, and from appearances in less than sixty days the road will be advancing towards the Colorado and the San Fer nando tunnel be Under progress. As the Southern Paciiic road is the only railway corporation In this section able to do anything, it is bad policy to ut tempt to cripple its operations. On motion of .In«l«e Witney, the following resolution was adopted: Resolved, That a special committee ofthe Board be appointed to enquire into tho truth of the rumored otarngC of the Southern Pacific Railroad Com pany, and that if any such bill has been introduced In Congress, they be instructed to send to our Representa- M n* IU.. :.. .. ~ naWlSofl .nnUn n f liven ut * i .i-i»; "i< * '■■ i** i i i... ■. ..-j-n .1 w, the agreement between the city and county ami thesaitl railroad company, and request them to use their endeav ors to prevent any legislation that might injuriously affect the same. The chair appointed as said special committee Messrs. Widney, Barrows and Lord. After discussion, Judge Widney pre sented the following resolution, which was adopted: iteaolved, That the Committee on Harbors be instructed to furnish Con gress a statement of the commerce and other statistics of our port, and the great necessity that exists for granting a further appropriation, as recom mended by Maj. Mendel I, U. S. A., for carrying out Ids views relative to Wilmington Harbor. Gov. Downey said that it would be a great outrage if the S. 1\ R. It. should change? its main route without consulting the people of Los Angeles, and make this city a mere side-station —this city and valley had acted too liberally toward the company to be so treated. Mr. Hewitt said that to his knowl ledge, up to live days ago, it was the intention of the company to build its main route direct through San Fer nando to Eos Angeles. Mr. Barrows presented a series of of resolutions, setting forth that the Southern Paclflo road was about to violate its agreement with Eos Ange les, and urging our Representatives in Congress to oppose any amendment to the law as it now stands, calculated to moke the Los Angeles road a mere branch. On motion, the special committee was Instructed to forward the resolu tions iv our representatives in Y\ asn ington, if they ascertain that any such legislation is contemplated. The Sec retary was authorized to use the tel egraph to ascertain the facts in the case. At request, Mr. Hewitt stated his conviction that an excellent and permanent channel would be secured in Wilmington harbor. On motion, the Chamber then adjourned. BEE CULTURE. Proceed lii srs ot the Bee-Keepers* Meet ing Held Yesterday at (Jrunirc Hall. The bee-keepers of Los Angeles county bad a meeting at Grange Hall, yesterday afternoon, to consult to gether on the general interests of the fraternity in this section. Capt. J. T. Gordon, of Azusa, presided, with Wm. Muth-ltasmussen as Secretary. Among the prominent bee-keepers present were A. J. Davidson, P. C. Malloy, P. Harmon, Mrs. 11. Richardson, P. l'liil lippi, li. Richardson, W. Muth-Kas mussen, R. J. Bayly, J. P. Bruck, A. H. Arnold and W. T. Clapp. lIOW TO DISPOSE OF "OUR HONEY." Mr. John P. Brack, of Arroyo Beeo Bee Ranch, pressnted an article on the important question, "How to dispose of o;ir honey." He suggested that the fact be advertised of the superior qual ity of Los Angeles honey, aud the certainty of a constant and adequate supply, "if the buyer does not seek us, we must seek tho buyer. Our market is evidently in tho Eastern States, and there we must seek our buyer. Wan Francisco is, and ever will be, but a place of exchange, where the Los An geles bee-keepers are now compelled to employ middlemen or brokers to do whal, in tt regulated state of affairs, tiie bee-hoe'H'l's can do themselves. But our bee-keepers must acquaint the buyer and consumer with the ex cellent quality of our honey—ty/ <'<l vcriisinj/. Its quality, as well as its quantity, cannot be praised too much. He suggested that a slatistieul article on bee culture) In Los Angeles couniy be prepared for publication. Mr. A. J. Haqidson also furnished suggestions on tbo same subject. He desired the second-hand oil can to be thrown aside, and a »» honey vessel" determined upon. Small producers, by acting together, could make it prolitable to ship honey in large quan tity to an Eastern market, (,'umb honey is as a rule in demand, espe cially if well put up. A prolonged discussion followed, participated in by Messrs. Gordon, Malloy, Davidson, Bruck and others. London was suggested as a good market for California honey. FOUL-HROOO. Mrs. Richardson, of Grand View, presented an article en " foul-brood." She maintained that it was caused by. excesses either of heat or cold, and that sudden changes were very detri mental to tho good health of bees. She recommended good shade in the Summer and a water-shade in rainy weather. Good, aolid.tight-frame hives are essential to practical bee-keeping, and' also a guard against moth millers. Messrs. Davidson, Bruck, Malloy, Wm. Miith-Hasmusscii, Bayly and others spoke on tho subject. Mr. Gordon maintained that there was no real contagious foul-brood in this part of the county. THE NEXT MEETING. The society will hold its next meet ing on tiie third Saturday in February, when tho following subjects will be discussed: Queen raising; Italianizing an apiary; tho best way to form a nucleus.

God's Children's Sleep. God lias a mot her's way of patting a child to sleep. You know there is no cradle-song like a mother's. After the excitement of the evening, it is almost impossible to get the child to sleep, if the rocking-chair stops a moment, the eyes are wide open; but the mother's patience and the mother's soothing manner keep on until, after a while, the angel of slumber puts his wing over the pillow. Well, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, the time will come when we will be wanting to bo put to sleep. The day of our life will be done aud the shadows of the night of death will be gathering around us. Then we want God to aoptlie us— to bush us to sleep. Let the music at our going not be thedirge Orthe organ or the knell of the church tower, orthe drumming of a "dead march," but let It be the hush of a mother's lullaby. Oil! the cradle of the grave will be soft with the pillow of all the promises. When we are being rocked into that last slumber, I want tliis to bo the cradle-song: "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you." "Asleep in Jesus! Ear from tliee Thy kindred ami their graves may be; BUI thine is still a blessed sleep, From which none ever wake to wepp." A Christian man was dying in Scot land. His daughter Nellie sat by his bedside. It was Sunday evening, and the bell of the Scotch kirk was ring fug, calling the people to church. The good old man, in his dying dream, thought lie was on the way to church, as he used to be when he went in the sleigh across the river; and as the evening hell struck up, in his dying dream he thought it was the call to church. He said: "Hark, children, tbe bells are ringing; we shall be late; wo must make the mare step out quick!" He shivered, and then said: "Pull the bulFalo-robes up closer, my lass! It is cold crossing the river, but we will soon be there, Nellie; we will soon be there!" And he smiled and said, "Just there now." No wonder he smiled; the good old man had got to church. Not the old Scotch kirk, but the temple lv the skies. Just across the riven How comfortably did Cod hush that old man to sleep! "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will J comfort you." " hot me die the death of tbe right eous, and let my last end be like his." — Talmage.
