Senator Maclay, of Sun Fernando, is in the city. He predicts brilliant mining operations in that section. The Knights Templar will hold their regular conclave to-morrow(Thnrsday) evening, at their Asylum. The schooner Isabella, on the rocks oil'old San Pedro, has hewn worked off And still the rain is in progress, with a total fall of over twelve inches up to 6 o'clock last night. Passengers booked on the Ventura are requested to call at the steamship otlice and secure transfers to the Sena tor. 11. A. Jones, Esq., of Panamint, is at the Pico, just in from the new mines. lie gives a most favorable report. One of the rascals figuring in the late burglaries here is a man named Bird, just out of San quentin for rob bery. The rain is telling ou the Coronel adobe block, on lxis Angeles street. It is au old building and has a thrilling history. The rain is good for the Grangers, hut it's rough on the gophers an<l ground • squirrels. They are being drownedOßt hy the thousands. The sale of delinquent property on Ihe city tux list for 1874 commenced yesterday. The rain made bidders scarce and cautious. The Directory shows thirty plain "Smiths" in Los Angeles, sixteen "Browns," and ten representatives of the Jones family. " Uncle Hilly" fiiiboUom, of Spadra, was in the city yesterday. The rain has made him happy, and he wants the gatis kept open for three days more. The Ban Francisco Call says that 30,1)00 sheep are on the roads leading from Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties into Kern eountv, looking for feed. All hopes ofthe safety of the schoon er Emma K. Farnham have been abandoned. She left Crescent City for Wilmington over a month ago, loaded with lumber. The Express says: "We received by to-day's mail San Francisco Calls ofthe 13th, 14th, 15th, 10th and 17th." Had the Metres* delayed its call at Wells. Fargo & Co.'s until the 25th inst. it would have received so many more Calls. Mr. Hewitt, Superintendent of the .Southern Pacific Railroad, returned from Wilmington l ist night. He re ports that the wounded men are all doing well, and that the chances are that even Master Mechanic Thomas, the most badly injured,will recover. The Senator arrived at Wilmington from San Francisco yesterday morn ing, with ninety passengers aud sev eral hundred tons of freight. The male passengers had to walk over half a mile at the break at Domingucz, the ladies were taken across ou hand cars. The rains have played the deuce with the stages on the coast line. At the Santa Clara river the drivers are looking wistfully at each other across the raging waters. There has been uo stage communication to or from San Diego or Santa Parbarafor three days. No stages will depart on this line to day from this city. The latest railroad intelligence is as follows: The Anaheim branch road is badly damaged, breaks at a dozen places and trains will not be running ior ten days. The road to Spadra and San Fernando is all right. It is ex pected that the break on the Wilming ton road will be repaired by this morning. At a regular meeting of South Star Degree Lodge No. 7, I. O. t). F., held January 19, 1875, the following ofilcors were installed in their respective chairs for the current term: Horace Burdick, D. M.j J. K. Somers, 1). D. M.j Pen A. Stanard, Secretary; E. A. Pruess, Jr., Treasurer! J. M. Passett, 1. G. The D. M. made the following appointments: I. C. Cirard, W.: A.W. Hutton, li. S. D. M.; I. J. Smith, L. S. D. M. The mails from San Francisco did not arrive until 1 r. m. yesterday. Tho Telegraph stage line reached San Fer nando but three hours late, a fact not worth noting in these delugey times. The San Fernando train was down at the wreck on the Wilmington road and this caused the additional de lay in the receipt of the mails. The stage line have men out all along the line, guarding against accidents, and are determined to make time. The culinary department of the Packman House has been arranged on the restaurant plan, so that day board or single meals can be had at the usual price. A ground entrance to the dining room has been secured, loading through tho Identical store of Messrs. Goldsmith & Davis. The table of this house is unsurpassed by any hotel in the city. The waiters are courteous and accommodating, and there is a notable absence of the confusion and noise of the average restaurant or ho tel. Presentation. After the ceremonies of installation of the officers of South Star Degree Lodge No. 7, I. O. O. F., last evening, the members presented the newly in stalled D. M., Horace Burdick, who has filled the same for a number of terms, with a heavy gold Past Grand's jewel. The presentation was made by J. M. Bassett, with appropriate re marks. Mr. Burdick was taken by surprise and said so, but feelingly thanked his brothers for their kindly remembrance. The jewel is a five pointed star with a heart and hand in the center on one side, and on the obverse an appropriate inscription. It was manufactured by Fisher & Thatcher, and is a finished piece of work. THE CITY LIBRARY. New Books on I In- Shelve*.

At the bee-keepers' meeting on Sat urday last, Mr. A. J. Davidson, made Ibe following suggestions on the im portant quest io.i, " How to Dispose of our Honey:" It is no doubt well for bee-keepers to understand all the best methods for keeping bees and the best plans for getting the greatest amount of honey, but the practical part of the business is to make it pay by fair, honest means. Honey, in the city of Los Angeles, will not always pass as a legal tender, as did coon skins in prim itive times in the Western States. In tbe consideration of the subject, "The best method of disposing of honey," I fully agree with the great Horace Greeley when be said much depends upon the spirit with which an enterprise is carried out; for if a per son, or a number of persons, have a good plan for operating, it can only be successful in proportion to the skill used in executing theditlerout parts of the method, and consequently we can only make general suggestions that may be particularized when decided upon. If the honey producers in the white sage belt would put up their light grade of honey, and do It In good taste, and their darker grades be dis tinctly marked second grade, we could then have a basis on which to estab lish a trade. By having reciving and distributing stores at our principal towns, we could (ill orders and get our money for just what we produce; and that, too, near our homes. But this plan would re quire a cheerful co-operation ou gen eral principles. It is my opiniou, we should adopt some kind of vessel to contain honey for shipment, and to be returned after it is emptied, so that the price paid for cases may twtt bo au entire loss and we also avoid the use of the second hand oil can. Mr. J. S. Harbison, by having a large quantity of honey, has made it profitable to seek an Eastern market. Many small producers, by acting to gether, ofcotir.se, could operate in like manner. Comb honey seems to be lv demand generally, if it can be pro cured in the Harbison comb-boxes, which is certainly a far more desirable form than that adopted by sonic, who cany comb honey to market in milk pans covered with cotton cloths. The plan of bottling liquid honey, or putting it up in small cans, has merit, if it could be done at the city or market where disused of, as ship ments in bulk are far more economi cal. Then there is another plan, viz: for everybody to sell when they can, aud for what they please or can get, and prepare it for market as their own peculiarities may indicate. Doafhs from Lamp Explosions. There are so many circumstances under which accidents, more or less severe and often fatal, occur from lamp explosions, that people cannot be too studious in informing themselves with regard to such accidents or too careful in seeking to avoid them. Put a few days since the following case occurred at the house of a gentleman on Perry street, in San Francisco: The gentle man entered a room late at night in which a kerosene lamp had been burn ing low through the evening, stepped towards it and was in the act ol ex-r tending his hand to turn it down and out; but just before his fingers reached the thumb-screw the lamp exploded with aloud report which sent it in fragments to every part of the room. Fortunately there was no fire set and no person injured. Tbe next morning a careful examination of the fragments to learn the cause of the explosion, led to the theory that the tube, which was rather a large one, had been fitted with a very small wick, thus leaving a large air space, by means of which, in all probability, tho movement of the air in the room, caused by the opening of the door, forced the small, flickering llame down into the tube far enough to communicate with and explode the gas which would naturally, under the circumstances, have accumulated therein. In this connection it may be inter esting, as well as useful, to call to mind the fact that Prof, ('handler, of New York city, says: " The total result for the year 1860, for the city of New York, which 1 myself have cut from news papers, is fifty-two fatal accidents from dangerous kerosene, lifty severe and si x slight—in all one hundred and eight persons, to my knowledge, from my own reading, have been injured liy kerosene in one year."

Forpnrposesof colonization, 1 know of no large body of land so near a growing commercial centre, In Call' lornla or elsewhere, to equal It, No part of it Is unavailable for farms, orchards or home steads. Il can besubdivided into lots ranging from live 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 lor the fuel thM it will produce anything that nourishes in Los Angeles or Santa Barbara counties. It is my confident opinion that the valueof shares in llns laagnidoeiit tract, will he quadrupled within two years—such is the extraordinary Influx of immigration to Ihe vicinity of Ijoa Angeles at tho present time. Wishing yon success in your undertaking, I am. very truly yours, J. Ross Bnowrnt. FISHER & THATCHER, WHOLESALE AND RETAIL ManufacturFng Jewelers, WATCHMAKERS A.N ID O 3? TIOI .A.
