The St. Charles Restaurant will he "poned Wednesday morning. The Orizaba arrived at Wilmington yesterday. The wires were down between Wil mington nnd this place yesterday. Tlie sailing of the Kalorama for up per porta will probably be postponed until to-morrow. Orange Grove Kncampment No. 31,. I. O. O. F. meets this evening. A full attendance is requested. The bridge over tlie Arroyo on the Los Nietos road washed away yester day. Our Auaheim correspondent says there are 13,000 sacks of grain waiting shipment at that point. The stroets aro again muddy, ex cept where the new grading lias been done. Wo received yesterday five days' mail from Santa Barbara, which was detained by reason of tlie impassable roads. Our farmers and stock - raisers are now almost as anxious for dry weather as they were to have rain a tew weeks ago. Tke rain of yesterday morning was accompanied, at times, with a heavy wind. it, however, did no serious damage. A culvert at the corner of Spring and Temple streets ia badly needed. We commend tiie subject to our City Fathers for consideration. Superintendent Hewitt informs us that he has received no information that the bridge over the American river at Sacramento is washed away. Hy mail yesterday we received cop ies of the Santa Barbara Pre*t from the Kith to the 23d, inclusive. They have had some rain over there. Our dates from San Diego are up to and including the 22d. Tlie rainfall down there has not been so heavy in this valley. J. 1). Dunlap, Deputy United States Marshal, has received tho appoint ment of United Dilates Timber Agent, and lie will at once enter actively upon bis duties. A little army of prisoners were ushered into tho County Court this morning to plead. Ibid and Cabezon pleaded not guilty, and the rest will say yes or no to-day. A gentleman who called at our of fice yesterday Informed us that it was a good day for younii ducks. Such re port* are encouraging for our agricul tural interests. Owing to tiie break in the railroad, the sailing of th« Orizaba for Han Francisco has been postponed until to-day. I'asseiigers will leave ou tbe 10:15 A. M. train. It is reported I hat the adobe bouse on the corner of Commercial and Ala meda streets, opposite the depot, has been so injured by the rain as to bo considered dangerous. Postmaster Bent aud his clerks were nearly Hooded out yesterday. The roof on the building turned the water the wrong way, and the result was a general dampening of U. S. mail mat ter and things, all but comfortable. The San Bernardino Argun plays it on our neighbor after this style: "The Los Augeles Mar says the gas went gracefully out at about half past eight iv the evening. We suppose Ben left the olllce about that time." It commenced raining about eleven o'clock on Sunday night,aiid at twelve o'clock yesterday, according to IHi commun's gauge, 3 00-100 inches had fallen. Jwa makes a fractioa over 20 inches for the season. The lot opposite the Pico House was again a lake yesterday morning. The street grade prevents the water run ning on, and offers a tine opening for an enterprising young man who would like to start a duck ranch. The filling in the gulches on Temple street and at other points where Mr. Beaudry has made improvements, have stood the heavy rains very well. No damage has b«en sustained, and in a number of places above tlie rilling the wash from the hills has tilled up the low places with soil. Mr. M. T. Herzogg of the People's Palace, returned by the Orizaba from San Francisco, where he purchased a large stock of the latent styles of dry goods and fancy goods. People in tending to purchase, will do well to give the People's Palace a call before purchasing elsewhere. In style, qual ity and pride we can suit everybody. Our San Fernando correspondent, under date o.f the 23d, says: "The wheat crop looks line all over the San Fernando valley. We have had 14J Inches of rainfall this season. Farm ers are all at work late and early, put ting in more wheat and barley. A large lot of early seed potatoes have just arrived from San Francisco. Tho necessities of Mrs. Fraser ami family, of whom mention was made iv the Hekald some days ago, are met hy tlie Masonic fraternity. The widow does not want for food or cloth ing, but she is sick and needs the at tention of her own sex. We trust our kind-hearted ladies will need no further potioe, and will call on Mrs. Fraser and render her as comfortable as possible. An lowa correspondent says his wife has an abhorrance for such ani mals as the bed-bug flea,and mosquito, and wants to know whether wo have them in Los Angeles. Speaking from personal experience, we have never encountered a bed-bug here; wo have seen only a few of the smaller and mild-manuered species of mosquito, and formed the acquaintance of only one flea, which staid with us all Sum mer. Attention is directed to the cart! of Dr. Paul M. Brenan, which appears this morning. The Doctor will remain with ns four days longer, and during that time he can be consulted at his oflice, No. 9 Downey block. Postmaster Bent received a tele gram yesterday, informing him that the Eastern and San Francisco mail would be forwarded that day to- Los Angeles by steamer. We will, there fore receive no mail of tiiis kind until to-morrow, at best. Mr. M. C. Baker has well nigh ac quired the title of being a universal genius. In ull manner of repairing, from a needle to an engine, as well ns in silver plating, brass casting, work ing in iron, steel, etc. Call on him, when anything breaks loose. Attention is directed to the adver tisement of Messrs. Jones & I , .l;ind--a new firm who succeed Noyes & DuilVc and will conduct at the old stand, op posite tho llkrald oflice, a general real estate, money brokerage and auction business. Mr. Jones is a gen tleman of means, recently from the East, and Mr. Bland, late of tho firm of Ruggles & Bland, is well known in the city. We predict a lively business for the new linn. We are troubled, like many of our neighbors in these wet times, with a leaky roof. It is not that tho water comes pouring down upon us iv tor rents that we complain, for then we could swim for our lives; but there is a continual dropping which is aggra vating in the extreme. As wo bund over our desk to write, it comes drop drop-drop—striking us in the nap of the neck and thence meandering down our back in a way which is at once cooling and exasperating. The water has been dammed several times, but it still continues to drop as before. THE STORM. Too Xmcli wf a Uood Tiling:. After three days of sunshine, and when everybody was beginning to congratulate everybody else on the beautiful weather, Sunday afternoon brought some portentious clouds. Tlie evening came on with hardly a star visible and about 11 o'clock at night the threatened rain commenced. At iirat, it was a steady shower with a slight fall, but towards morning a strong wind set in from the North east, which amounted almost to a gale, and the rain came in torrents. The wind subsided during the fore noon yesterday, the rain gradually slackened, and by 5 o'clock, we were very nearly treated to a glimpse of sunshine. CONSIDERABLE DAMAOE Was done by the storm in blowing down trees, fences, signs, etc. On the corner of Spring and Franklin streets, a line pepper tree was thrown over against the fence; on Mr. de Celis' place, in tlie Southern part of the city, several large walnut trees were ruined, the bodies being broken oil' near the ground. It is feared also that much damage may have been done to the growing fruit, now in various stages of development. THK KAILHOADS. The effect on the different railroad branches running from this city was most disastrous. All of the recent re pairs were washed away and the roads were left in even a worse condition than after the previous rains. No trains were run on the Wilmington, Anaheim and Spadra branches, but a successful trip was made to San Fer nando, tlie train bringing down our Northern and Eastern mail at 3 i>. If. The Wilmington road is damaged near Cerritos, rendering it impassable. The Anaheim branch has suffered the worst of all. A dispatch to Superin tendent Hewitt from Mr. Higgins, at Downey City, stated that near Coyote creek tlie track was two feet under water for a distance of fifty feet and the water was running with a strong current. The false work this side of that plaj(e was carried away. New Rjver was very high ami still rising, bringing down much brush. The bulkhead at the Los Angeles river was washed away. At Jamison's, about 400 yards of track was washed off and at many places the water was making a complete destruction of tho line. REPAIRINO FORCES. Nothing was attempted on the Ana heim branch, except to save ties and stringers from being swept off by the flood. Forces of men were at work on all the other roads, but they labored against hope, while the rain continued. To-day we have slight grounds for hope that any ofthe roads will be in opera tion, ami, should the rain continue, all attempts at repairs may have to be abandoned until the weather becomes settled. THK RAINFALL. The raiu-gauge kept by the telegraph operator at tho depot, Mr. Caffery, showed a fall of 2.24 inches from Sun day night to 4 o'clock yesterday after noon. Mr. Ducommun's gauge indi cated 3.90 inches up to yesterday noon. There is evideutly a mistake in the calculation somewhere, but it is safe to say t hat over three inches of rain fell. This makes, for the season, about twenty-one inches. It is to be hoped that the elements will give us a respite for a time now, as another storm like that of Sunday night would work almost irreparable damage. ANAHEIM NOTES. A correspondent at Anaheim gives us the following points of interest con cerning the doings of our neighboring city: Tho work on the depot has been postponed for want of lumber and the carpenters are out on the road helping the section-men repair tlie washes by the late rain. Mails arrive quite ir regularly. In speaking of tho late homicide, the Gazette claims that there was bad blood existing between McArthur and Neilson, and that, as usual, a woman —Neilsou's wife—was at the bottom of it. This state ment our correspondent con tradicts flatly, giving Neil sou and his wife good characters and the reverse to McArthur, who committed tho murder. Ho says that McArthur after killing Neilson, re turned from the kitchen into the din ing-room, proceeding to wait on the tatle with tho blood on his hands. When some ot the guests asked him what had happened in the kitchen, he said, "Some light," but turned his back and would not answer any more questions. [Written for the HERALD.] MY GUITAR.

Bkdkc Eos Angeles, January 2Mb. THE CENTENNIAL. Editor Herald: A few days since I received through the Postoffice a package containing several documents the object of which is explained by the following, which is one of them: Sir: The Centennial Commission is now prepared to receive applications for space in tlie buildings and grounds of the International Exhibition. In order to all'ord the data for an early allotment of space ami its distribution among tlie different nations, it is im portant that all who purpose exhibit ing should make known their inten tion without delay. 1 forward you herewith a blank form of application aad necessary informa tion, and request that, if you Intend participating in the Exhibition, you will facilitate the work of the Com mission by advising me at your earli est convenience, iv accordance with the enclosed forms. Respectfully yours, A. T. Goshokn, Director General. The forms alluded to are left at the oflice of Judge Thompson, over tho bank, for the convenience of any per sons who wish to consult them or to enter their names as applicants for space. The people of this part of the State have it in their power to make a display at the International Exhibi tion that will attract the attention of tlte world and bring thousands of in dustrious and enterprising families to our valleys, which are the home of all the semi-tropical fruits, as well as as of all the products of the " States." Thus will the resources of our sunny land—a land of flowers aud already "flowing with milk and honey," be developed, and the highway to a glo rious future upon which we have now entered, will be made more easy to travel. It is most earnestly hoped that, as individuals, or by some concert of ac tion, there may be a display made of tlie resources of Los Angeles county which shall be worthy of her citizens anil of (ho land of their adoption. Yours truly, Wm. Porter. Los Augeles, January 2<">th. The genial, accconimodiiting con ductor on tlie San Fernando road has developed a penchant for hunting. The other evening, while on the up ward-bound trip, a drove of half a dozen donkeys chanced to get ahead of the train. Now everybody knows that if there is one animal in the world that resembles a deer more than another, it is a donkey. The small ears, slim legs, lithe form, horns, mel low voice and general appearance are identical. Our friend, the conductor, fell into tho very natural error of thinking that the donkeys were deer; so he got out his revolver and tired away at the drove with a vengeance, counting on at least a dozen quarters of venison to take back to his friends in triumph. There is no telling where the matter would have ended, but the innocent creatures, taking fright at tlie train and the hostile demoiistra tions, fled for the interior. The con ductor didu't kill any, thank fortune; nnd he bas nobody's doukeys to pay for, so he feels happy—and so do all the railroad boys who have heard the story. Financial Condition of Los Angeles County. In the official statement of the value of real property and indebtedness in the various counties of the State, pub lished In September last, the value of property iv Los Angeles county is placed atSI2,OSO,3GG, and its indebted ness at 1626,949 08. Concerning this indebtedness, County Auditor Gillette speaks as follows: Tho sum above named as the in debtedness of Los Attgelea county, la tbat giveu in my report to the Hoard of Supervisors of said county, Juno 1, 1874. In that report the real property owned by the couuty was valued at $40,000, being three - fourths of the property used by jail and city and the Court-house property. In my report of the 13th ult. to the State Controller, I appraised said property at $50,000 — nearer ita true value. Owing to such increase of $10,000 In county assets, the payment of $22,313 coupons and the collection of over $200,000 taxes (the balance in Treasury on Jan. Bth being $200,000.10) in my said last report to the Controller the county indebtedness was giveu as $308,585 IK). Against this reduction in our debt we must remember that Un tax monies are nearly all collected, aud, aside from the amounts received from licenses, the amount ou hand must meet the expenses of the current year, including the interest to fall due on bonds. A Rare Chance. Those five handsome houses on MaiDstreet, ottered for sale by W. H. J.
