A profound commotion was created
iv Chinatown last evening about 8
o'clock. A Celestial woman went to a
junk shop to buy a can of opium, and
iv paying for her purchase displayed
the astounding sum of $9 50. This
was too much of a temptation for tlie
merchant and one or two attendants,
and they attempted to rob the custom

licemen came to the rescue and suc
ceeded iv arresting the woman and
lodging her in the calaboose.

been thoroughly renovated and is now
as neat and clean as a new pin. The

reasonable price, eaten with all the
comforts of homo.
Postmaster Bent complains that
many papers and packages of mail
matter known as third class are
dropped into the ottice insufficiently
stamped. No less than nineteen in
stances of this kind occurred yester
day. Under the postoffice regulations
matter thus mailed cannot be forward
ed, like letters, to be paid at the office
of delivery, but must bo thrown into
the waste-basket. Many who are
sending papers and packages to their
friends will be disappointed. The rate
is one cent for two ounces or fraction
thereof. If there is any doubt about
weight, it can always be ascertained
at the office.
"B." in Trouble.
Editor- Herald : I am nervous,
vexed; have not slept for a week until
two or three o'clock in th© morning;
my health is fast fitilingand very soon
there will be a solemn funeral ami a
long obituary, stating that I died of
some disease to which the doctors will
give a scientific name requiring twenty
letters to spell it and which nobody
living can understand, when the fact
ofthe matter is, I shall be literally
howled to death. My neighbors have
a score of curs that make night hideous
with howling. Nothing undermines
health like tlie loss of sleep, nnd
when health fails, nothing makes
one so nervous as the howl
of a dog. If the truth were
known, I have not a doubt but
there are fifty victims now sleeping in
the silent grave in this city who were
howled to death. I iove a good dog;
one that will quietly watch the house
avid obey when spoken to, and has
sense enough to knew that no howling
is permitted in aeivilized community.
Civilized people wiil not permit any
other kind of dogs to live, especially
in a city. We have a stringent dog
law in this city, and we have officers
to enforce tho law ; but so far ns we
know, there is perfect harmony
between the officers and tlie own
ers of dogs. Occasionally the
vicious curs will pounce upon a woman
or a child and nearly devour them,
then the officers will sputter around
and sell a dozen or two brass c dlars
for two or three dollars each, and that
is the end of it—all quiets down uutil
another outrage is committed. Is there
no law to make officers execute this
law? If not there ought to be. I give
the City Fathers timely notice that
heavy damages will be claimed when
I die. I have engaged the lawyer and
posted my heirs, and tlie city must
pay for it. The only means ot escape
from this loss is for the city to put the
dog law in force and save my life.
La Ballona.
[Translated from La Cronlea.l
The nearest point of commencement
of La Ballona .Ranch from the Court
House, of the city of Los Angeles, in
a Southwest direction, is just three
leagues. Extending thence to the Pa
cific Ocean, taking in tho favorite
watering place Santa Monica and Will
Tell*; it embraces an area of 13,919
acres, a little less than twenty-two
square miles.
The origin of the name La Hallona
may be undeistood in the following:
There being, however, two versions
both of which will be ottered. The
lirst is, that an immense whale was
once carried ashore (by the way the
skin and bones of one is on the beach
at the present time) and out of respect
to his "whale-ship" one letter having
been dropped from his name, ami an
other inserted, tlie ranch was called
Ballona instead of Ballcna (whale.)
The second is, that valle (valley)
often spelt Balle, by suppressing
when a vowel the last letter, accord
ing to rule, and affixing the augment
ative oiiu becomes in Spanish "Bal
lona," in English, meaning large val
ley. As this answers both analogical
ly" and descriptively, for Ballona is
Indeed a large valley, it is probably
the correct version as to the origin of
the name.
El rancho de la Ballona was orig
inally granted to Seftores Dons Au
gust in and fgnario Machado, Felipe
and Tomas Talamautez on the 27th of
November, 1839, by Juan B. Alverado,
then Constitutional Governor of the

Talamautez, the others having gone,
after living to a good old age '• to that
bourne from whence no traveler re
turns," leaving behind them, howev
er, as dashing, handsome, intelligent
representatives as any that California
can boast of, and of whom La Ballona
is justly proud. But time, though it
may tyke from their gaze, conuot dis
pel from their memories the fond rec
ollections associated with their ances

Sr. Don Ignacio Machado at the age
of 85 is a magnificent type of the na
tive California!!. Though suffering
at times from a slight chrouic infirm
ity he is still stroug in body and vig
orous in mind, and finds pleasure once
in a while in riding a "bronco" or
doing a good day's work, in spite of
the protestations of his careful and
affectionate children. Don Ignacio
possesses a wonderful memory, and
from time to time regales his numerous
children and friends by narrating
incidents connected with early La
Ballona,which,historically considered,
are worthy of notice, aud may be pre
sented to your readers when space may
be found in the columns of your paper.
La Ballona, Jan. 24.
From the many letters of inquiry
which we receive daily, we select one
now and then for publication to illus
trate the general interest which is
awakened throughout the East regard
ing Southern California. The follow
ing may be considered a significant
straw which shows which way the
wind blows:

not like the society there, and I be

Last Tuesday evening a lighter with
a load of lumber, belonging to the
railroad company, broke loose from its
anchorage and drifted around and was
thrown on the beach of Rattlesnake
Island. The little steamer went this
morning to pull it off.
Major McClea left with his family
to-day for the purpose of making Los
Angeles his permanent residence. Mr.
Ames, his father-in-law, has rented
his farm up on the railroad, aud will
move to Wilmington to occupy the
Major's house.
Messrs. Thomas, French and Ma
teer, who were scalded and otherwise
injured, last week ou the railroad,near
Wilmington, are all getting along as
well as could be expected. French is
out and on the road,but looking some
what like a scarred veteran. Mateer,
whose injuries are principally burns,
is very iuuen relieved from his suffer
ings and only requires time to get out
all right. Thomas, who was not only
buried, hut received internal injuries,
is considered out of danger, but will
require careful nursing.
San Diego Items.
The San Diego river is coming down
in increased volume, and is pouring
an immense stream into the Bay.
This shows how heavy have been tbe
rains iv the country.
The bees iv San Diego county make
honey in December and January, and
continue in their work till late in Au
gust, when the wild flowers die. The
first honey of the year 1875 was
brought to town yesterday, being a
section box from the apiary at the
Sacatero Ranch near the head of the
Sweetwater river.
The Vieuxtemps skipped out to
parts unknown on Saturday evening
last. They left a small token of their
affection at the Lyon's House ia the
shape of an empty valise. Poordcvils,
they must be having a hard time of it
out in the storm which has pre
vailed since their departure. Any one
who may feel interested In tlie afore
said gentlemen may hear of their
whereabouts hy usiiiK the telegraph
between this place and Yuma. That
they are a pair of thoroughbred bilks
no one will doubt. Look out for them,
you Yuma folks, Newspapers through
out the country should give this brace
of confirmed humbugs a "benefit."
They are musically inclined, but tlieir
"plays" are of such a character as to
bring them up with a quick jerk one
of these days. They capped the climax
by promising a benefit for the Catho
lic Church,sold tickets, collected some
money and walked oil' with the plun
der most unceremoniously.— World.
Our storm has conic. After the big
rush or waters in the upper country,
Sun Diego is favored with a small del
uge. Durinn the last storm, while (as
it is reported) Los Angeles was
drenched with Vlh inches of rain, the
rainfall in this city measured little
over half an inch. It is true, we have
our doubts about the Los Ange
les story; twelve inches is a good deal
of water to descend upon the surface
of the country in two days. But there
is little doubt that the rainfall up the
coast was very largely in excess of
that at San Diego. On Sunday night,
however, our turn came; the wind
freshened up from the Southeast, and
it began to rain; toward daybreak
it rained hard; and during the greater
part of yesterday forenoon there was
a stiff Southeast gale and a steady
pour. Total rainfall ninety-live hun
dredths of an inch. And it is raining
again as we write. — Union, 1307 A.
