Foy, of titiscity, yesterday received a letter from his sister, who lives at Lawrenceburg, Indiana, in which she says at the time of writing the thermometer marked eleven de grees below zero—forty-three degrees below the freezing point. The lady also inquires why it is that while we are claiming that ours is the most healthy climate in the world our papers are filled with physician's cards and apothecary advertisements. The why and wherefore of this is thus: Loa Angeles is the resort of invalids from all parts of the world. Doctors go where the invalids go, and druggists are essential to both doctors and in valids. The Star litis apparently convinced itself that there is nothing in Hough ton's bill, so far as a change of route of the Southern Pacific Railroad Com pany is concerned. There is, however, one point on which it has not yet ex ercised its sophistry. In their con tract with the people of this county, tho company agreed to com plete their road from the North to Los Angeles within five years from November, 1872; but In Houghton's bill they ask to have the date of com pletion extended to 1885. Is this all right and would another subsidy of $;iOO,OOO prevail on them not to go into Congress sometime between now and 1885 and ask to have the time extended to the year 1901 ? Cucamongo Homestead. Editor Hkkaj.d I You have Stated that you would give pioposcd purchasers some inform ation relative to the lands, water privileges, etc., of tiie Cucamongo Homesteau Assooia tiou. Arevou prepared to do so now? Tlie sale of the pvouerty is advertised to lake place on Ttleaduj next, and I in common with others who eunteinptata puroliusing, would be thauktul for n>l Information attain able relative to tho matter. New Comkb. Los Augeles, January 29,187 i In response to the above note, we will say that we have not yet received the long promised report on Cuea niongo land and water, and cannot to day give as full and explicit informa tion as we had hoped and desired. The following facts and suggestions may be useful to our correspondent and his friends: The quality of some of the soil of the Cucamongo grant is cor rectly described in the pamphlet pub lished by the company some time ago. What proportion of the soil ia as de scribed the pamphlet does not say nor do we know. It is a good rule not to purchase land until you have seen and carefully examined every acre of it. Those who intern! to purchase Cuca mongo property should rigidly apply this rule. A certain proportion of tbe land ia a loose gravelly forma tion, good for fruit trees, but will require an immense amount of water. Now of the main thing —water —with- out an abundance of which Cucamongo land, like a great deal of other land, is worth less than nothing. The old Cucamongo vineyard is the heart of the homestead, but is not a part of it and is not to be sold with it, though we are informed it is owned by the same parties who are placing the land in market. Aconsiderable water rises on the vineyard, and it is supposed to be the water which sinks at the mouth of the eaiion. The company is now taking the water from the cation and convoy lug it in pipes down to the homestead lands. Here is the danger which purchasers of the homestead should guard against: .Suppose it is found, as it most certainly will be, that taking the water from the cafion iv pipes exhausts the supply at some season of the year on the vineyard, what guarantee have the pur chasers of the homestead that the owners of the vineyard ranch will mot by process of law compel them to turn tho water back into its natural chan nel? The vineyard has the prior claim to tho water If it can be shown that its supply is from the canon, and its fail ure after the water ia taken out in pipes will be evidence of that fact. Tho loss of the water to the homestead purchasers would render their land utterly worthless. Properly the vine yard ranch should have beeu a part of tho homestead, but as it is not no one should purchase a foot of the land until the vineyard owners forever abandon all claims to the water of the cafioti. This guarantee may have already been made, but if it has not it should be before the land is sold. The Two Companies. Knowing as we do that tbe Evening Express has long cherished a griidge against the Grange and tho Granger, and that it has become so prejudiced against the railroad company that it cannot bring itself to see any good in that corporation, we can readily ex cuse its opposition to the action of the State Grange in recommending our delegation iv Congress to favor subsi dizing the Southern Pacific Company in like ratio that aid was offered the Texas Pacific, as well as overlook its broad and unsustained charges of mo nopoly and extortion preferred against the Southern Pacific Railroad Com pany. But we cannot permit it to make an argument against our posi tion relative to the course pursued by the State Grange and in support of the Pacific company, and yet leave the main feature of that position untouch ed, without saying a word in response. The gist of our argument was that no matter how or by whom the Southern overland railroad was built, it would not give us a competing line; that if the road was built by two companies, there would be no competition; that the Texas Pacific would not build fur ther West than it met a road going East; that the Southern Pacific will only go East until it meets the one stretching West; that only the one track would be built, no matter how many companies were engaged in its construction. If our cotemporary can show us that this position is not cor rect, it will be able to upset all the rules and regulations that govern business. Tlie Southern Pacific al ready have the right of way to the Colorado river and they will build tlio road to that point, subsidy or no sub sidy. Tom Scott will not build his Texas Pacific road a mile beyond that point on the subsidy he will receive from towns, counties, States and the nation. If anyone flatters himself that these two companies will build parallel roads and run a competition that will impoverish both, he is mis taken aud is ignorant of the first prin ciples of railroading. If the Govern ment should subsidize both the South ern Pacific anil tlie Texas Pacific to the full cost of building and equiping, and stipulate that each should build a railroad from ocean to ocean, within twelve months from the date of com pletion, one company would control both roads. That there would not be competition, is the point we sought to establish, and this point the Express writes all arouud, but does not touch nor attempt to refute. If it can be shown that Scott will refuse all offers of combination or sale from the South ern Pacific and will push his own road on to San Diego and San Francisco re gardless of where he meets the South ern Pacilic or how far tho two roads will run side by side, and if he will bind himself, his heirs or assigns, not to buy, sell or in any way collude or combine to or with the Southern Pacific, we shall be in favor of subsidizing his road from tlie Atlantic to the Pacific, and shall advocate the measure as earnestly and persistently as could be desired by the most uncompromising opponent of the Southern Pacific Com pany. We will heed and carefully weigh all arguments the Express may advance to this end, and when it has convinced us that Scott will do this thing we will join with it heart and hand and do all in our power to assist liiin in the accomplishment of the great and glorious undertaking. We know that tlie company controlled by Messrs. Stanford, Crockf.b, Hopkins, Huntington and Colton is seeking to control the railroad sys tem of the Pacific; wo know that these managers have received vast sums from the people in the shape of subsidy, and we know that it is only where we can make our interest theirs that we may look for concessions at their hands, but shall we improve our condition or change the aspect of affairs by giving subsidy aid to the Texas Pacific and withholding it from the Southern Pacific? By so doing we will prolong the time when we will have a Southern overland railroad and defy the proverb which says it is better to trust the devil we know than the devil we don't know. Testimony of Colonel Morrow. Nkw Orleans, January 28th.—Be fore the Congressional Committee, to day, Col. Henry A.'Morrow testified that ho found hostility to the General Government In the State of Louisi ana. The people do not regard tlie negro as entitled to the position he holds. It is objected that he was given rights to which his education did not entitle him. He believed that the people would submit quietly to a fair election, without the presence of U. 8. troops, and abide by the result. He was a Grant man in politics, and a friend of the President.

Washington, January 28th.—The House is at a dead lock on the Civil Rights bill. It may be broken on Monday by a mere majority. To avoid such contests for the future, a new rule is proposed, which is that when any question is before the House, there shall be but two dilatory motions entertained —one to adjourn and one fixing the time to which it shall adjourn. There is some appre hension that an extra session may be necessary, but probably not, if the night sessions are devoted to busi ness. It is conceded that the Interior De partment must apply to both Houses of Congress for money to pay for the legal services under the McGarrahan resolution. Houghton holds that no legal proceedings can be instituted under existing laws in which McGar rahan can intervene. He regards the House resolution as entirely inef fective. Butler's Telegraph Bill. Washington, January 26th.—The Postal Telegraph bill introduced by Butler, of Massachusetts, yesterday, proposes to declare all telegraph lines post-routes, and the Postmaster-Gen eral is authorized to advertise for the transmission of Government dispatch es, as carrying the mails is how adver tised for. The bill also requires that the rates for special news dispatches and commercial news bo the sumo,and in no case to exceed the rates charged press associations on tbe first of Janu ary next. Bates are to be uniform for similar service. A Brakeman Run Over and Killed. Stockton, January 28th.—A horri ble accident occurred near the Han Joaquin river bridge of the Central Pa cific Railroad this morning. A brake man named George Hayes was run over and both his legs were cut off. He fell through the trestle-work and died in about three hours. Sale of a Large Ranch. Martinez, January 26th. — The Marsh ranch, in Contra Costa county, was sold at noon to-day at Sheriff's sale, for the sum of $199,138. W. W. Camron, Alice Camron and C. P. Marsh are the purchasers. The Tilton-Beecher Case. New Youk, January 27th.—In the Beecber ease yesterday, the cross-ex amination of Moulton was continued by Tracy aud ex-Judge Porter. He was questioned with regard to certain letters and documents in the ca9e, and as to how Tilton obtained copies of certain letters, but no material infor mation was drawn out. The examina tion was interrupted by Moulton re ceiving a dispatch announcing the death of hiß mother, and after a brief interruption he resumed his testimony, both aide agreeing to get through with him and let him go. Coungpl for defense endeavored to get in a letter from Clark, published in the Oolden Age, with a view of showing the poor financial condition of the paper, and that Clark consider ed Tilton a great drawback to the paper, Court ruled out the letter. The Wnfcsess admitted destroying some letters of Beecher to him, he supposed intentionally. He denied saying to Mr. Swan that Beecher and lie (wit ness) had got into a controversy and one had got to destroy the other. A Fatal Affray. Eureka, Nevada, January 28th.— A murderous affray has taken place at Blue Eagle Springf, near McDonald's salt marsh. Three men, Jarvis, Wil liams and a third whose name is un known, were en route for Panamint. They qrfrreled over a division of com pany ptperty and stopped ever night. In the morning the unknown man was found dead with his throat cut. Jarvis was living, but with terrible wounds on tlie bead and face. Wil liams is nowhere to be found, and a liorse, blf.nkets, arms, etc., are miss ing. It is supposed that Wilson killed his partners and decamped. From San Diego. San Diego, January 28th.— The re cent rainfall here amounted to two inches. The rivers are full. There is snow in the mountains directly East of us, for the first time in years. The Arizona telegraph is down since Tuesday. Up to that time heavy rains were reported along the line. Three men were arrested Monday on suspicion of robbing the mails, on the 17th iust., between here aud San Luis Hey. Beecher and Tilton. New York, Jauuary 28th.—In the Tilton-Beeeher case the question of a wife and husband testifying for or against each other was discussed. Pending the argument the Court ad journed. Chicago wants a Mint. Chicago, January 20th.—A largo and enthusiastic meeting was held at the Palmer House this evening, to consider means to take steps for the establishment of a U. S. Mint here. A committee of three was appointed to go to Washington and urge the pas sago of a bill to meet the want. California Pioneers in New York. Nkw York, January 28th. -- A m«etiug was held to-night by a num ber of residents of California prior to its admission as a State, to make ar rangements for a reunion in this city. Tbe eveuing of February 11th was de cided ou, and steps were taken to or ganize a permanent society of old Cal ifornians. A Chilean found in his Cabin Horri bly Mutilated. San Rafael, January 27th. — A murderwas committed on what was called the White Ranch, eight or nine miles from this place, about 1 o'clock yesterday. The murdered man is a Chilean named Joe, who was, until re cently, in the employ of A. Mallard. Joe has had trouble with his neigh bors, and was arrested on Christmas for firing at one of their houses. At 3 o'clock yesterday a neighbor went to his cabin in the redwoods, and found him dead, with his body horribly mangled and mutilated by blows from an axe. In tlie bouse was also found a man of middle age, who had in his hand a bloody ax, but had no marks of blood on his person or evi dences of having recently engaged in a struggle. Tlie body was cold and the deed must have been commit ted two hours previously. The man fuddled with liquor and appeared to be stupid and dazed. He was arrested and brought to this town and lodged in jail, but showed nosigu that he was aware of being accused or suspected of a great crime. He was unable to tell his own name or give any account of himself. It is very improbable he had anything to do with tbe matter. The deceased was a man of violent pas sions, was addicted to drink, and when drunk was a very dangerous man. More Narrow - Gange Railroads-The Weather. Salt Lake, January 27th.—There has been incorporated at this place a company to build a narrow-gauge rail road from Salt Lake to Ogden, intend ing to connect with the Utah Western here and the Utah Northern at Ogden —both narrow-gauge railroads. The cold weather of the past few days has hardened the snow and stopped slides for the preseut. NEW TO-DAY. A Rare Opportunity ! Look Out!
