I propose to give the public what, not like the late Horace Greeley, I know, bnl what are some of my thought! upon the subjects named in the heading of this ailicle. The chief objects of pruning trees or shrubs are two, beauty of the form and its pro ductiveness. As tho beauty of a production de pends upon art and a cultivated and discriminating tasle, T shall leave that branch of the subject, to those better qualified than myself, anil give only my thoughts upon pruning for pro ductiveness. Before laying his band, armed with knife or saw, upon tree, shrub, or any other vegetable form, the product of the orchard or garden, the pruner should not only understand, but bear in mind, that In every healthy tree, in it*4 natural state, there is a perfect equilibrium between the roots on the one part and the branches aud foliage on the other, und in the forces em ployed and tbe function's which they reciprocally perform; and he who would dismember a tree without re gard to this fact, should be restrained from entering a nursery or an orchard. Keeping this fact of equilibrium in view, It will lie evident that the re moval of any limb from a healthy tree, destroys Ihe equilibrium)and the roots must stiller adimunition of their powers in exact proportion lo the amount of foliage-producing branches which have been removed, until by thi' decay or suspended growth of the roots and the continued growth of tiie branches, the equilibrium is restored. Another important fact Is, that in a living tree there is a constant circula tion of fluid, an upward and a down ward flow. The upward How, with the exception of a small amount of salts, Is composed of water, while the downward flow contains the carbon, in tho condition of carbonic acid, with which tho tree itself, both root and branch is constructed. The carbonic acid, which furnishes the matter for the building Up of fhe tree, is taken from the atmosphere by the leaves, which are laboratories in which the matter is prepared for use in the for mation of the structure. Every parti cle of matter which enters into the composition of a tree, whether it be the roots or branches, or the fruit, has passed through the leaves Before tak ing its proper place in the form. All the solid matter which enters into the root and stein of an embryo plant, un til its leaves make t heir appearance above the ground and gather nutri ment from the illuminated air, was contained in the seed when it fell from its parent stock or from the fruit in which it was imbedded before Its sepa ration from the patent tree. We (bus seethe importance of the leaves of a tree. And the roofs are no less Impor tant than the leaves. All tho water required to hold in a fluid state the solid matter which the leaves obtain from the atmosphere is furnished by the roots ofthe tree. If the roots are unable to furnish the requisite supply of water, the leaves harden and lose their power to extract matter from the at inosphere. When the matter taken from the at mosphere is employed in the forma tion of seed or fruit, there must neoes "•irilje i..cult d .llmiiiiitinh of ft... lii(iu. ous formation of the tree —of the growl hof (he woody part, Every ob server will have noticed that whenever a tree is unusually loaded with fruit, the growth of wood during the year is but slight, it is from this cause that many fruit and men-bearing Ireesonly produce fruit or seed biennially. The entire force of the organization being expended upon the formation of the fruit or seed, there Is no ligneous growth during that year upon which seed or fruit buds could be produced. New Mining District. At a miner's meeting held at Jiang's Station, on tbe 12th Inst., a new min ing district was formed, called the " lllue Ledge District." It lies nortli of San Fernando mining district, con necting on the same and extending north to the summit of what is known as Chico Lopez mountain; bounded on the West by the Arroyo Seco, on the East hy the Fsquididl mine and the old toll-gate; thenco on to the summit of tho San Fernando range of moun tains. The parties making the lirst discoveries now having their claims in legal shape and form, give me the liberty of informing the press as far as present development* extend, which J will do as briefly as possible. About three miles by the compass and five by trail from 'Lang's Station, quite a variety of mineral deposits have been discovered. Very extensive gold ledges have been found, pt which the lowest test is $2,t00 per ton, and run ning as high as $5,000 per ton, of winch as yet but fifteen claims have been properly located. There is room for more, and from all appearances, the last may be as valuable as the first. This test was made with acids, by Mr. Sliang, of San Fernando, tbe discov erer of the mines, and the above is Un report lie gave me. I have been on the ground and examiued the mines, and feel satisfied that they are under estimated. Cinnal>ar,m.tive silver and lead mines have been discovered within two miles of the same place. Mr. Henry Tomas reports the discov ery of a black lead mine within about seven miles. I have always been op posed to sensational reports anil ex citements, and do not feel like ex pressing my mind in full as to the nattering prospects of this district, but will simply say that if further devel opments prove as satisfactory as past tests, it has never been surpassed on the Pacific coast. It costs but little to examine the field, and those hunting mines might do well to turn their at tention in this direction. I give it as my opinion that these mines are very rich and inexhaustible. I am the Recorder of the district, and wilt take parties to tbo grounds wishing to see them. I also have every accommoda tion for man and beast, but large par ties coming through San Fernando would do well to consult Mr. Shang, Mr. Hilman, Messrs. Look cV Denote, merchants, J. D. Uell, J. McGilvie, Mr. Slater or Mr. fJilman, merchant all of whom are interested and saw the gold test made. The distance from l.os Angeles to these mines is about 60 miles. .John Lanu.

The rumor was circulated in this city yesterday morning that an acci dent had occurred on the Wilmington road, between Compton and Wilming ton, resulting in the death of several railroad men. Soon afterward it was officially announced (hat no one had been killed. The particulars, as tele graphed from Wilmington, are as fol lows: A sad accident happened on the railroad this morning, between here and CerrltOS. It was deemed advisa ble, on account of the late heavy rains to send the locomotive San Gabriel ahead of the regular passenger train. Mr. W. H. Thomas, the Master Me chanic of the company; A. French, Engineer, and Edward Matecr, Con ductor, were on board. They pro ceeded carefully until within a few miles of Cerritos, but before they had run a mile, they struck a place that had been honey-combed by go phers, and the track gave way, sud denly doubling the engine and lender up like a knife, smashing the engine badly. The three men were badly bruised and scalded. They were extricated from the wreck and brought back to Wilmington on a hand-car aud every thing done to allcviatetheirsuircrings that was possible. Br. Wise, of Los Angeles, and Drs. Johnson and Laudesheimer were In attendance as soon as possible and rendered all the aid in their power. The injured men willrecover, but they had a very narrow escape. A wrecking parly is out, at the scene of the disaster, and are building a track around the wreck. They expect trains to be running on Wednesday nt the latest. REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS.

Mak'iin, Ceneral Agent California Immigrant Union—Dear Sir:—l have Just Vis ited the "Centlncla nnd Siuisnl Hedondo" Rancho, and drivenoverthe land described in youradvertisemenl. Willi all my experience In tho southern part of (California, I have seen not hing lo .surpass this tract in fertility of soil, beaut v Of location, and advantage ol easy m- 1 and salubrity of climate. For purposes of colonization, 1 know ol no large body of land so near a growing commercial centre, in Cali fornia or elsewhere, to equal it. No part, of it Is unavailable for farms, orchards or home steads. 11 can be subdivided Into lots ranging from live acres to several hundred acres and e\ery acre of 11 can be made productive. Waioi ls abundant, and convenient. Tbo land Is .subject to easy Irrigation; and lean vouch lor Ihe fact that it will produce anything thai nourishes ill Los Angeles or Santa Barbara counties. 11 Is my confident opinion thai the value of shares In this magnificent tract will be. quadrupled within two years—such is the extraordinary Influx ol Immigration to Ihe vicinity of Los Angeles at the present time. Wishing you success in your undertaking, I urn, very truly yours, J. Boss Bkow nk.
