CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10, 1875. Public Cremation. [From the Petaluma Argus, Feb. 6.] The Flag of Thursday gives an ex teuded account of the recent crema tion of an Indian murdered atHealds burg last Saturday. The ceremony was witnessed by many whites. When everything was ready, tbe dead In dian was laid upon the pyre and the mourners took up their position to the windward. Torches were then applied and tho flames began the work. The Flag man says the sight of the roast ing body was sickening. The flesh became charred and blackened and as the cords ami muscles contracted, the arms, legs and trunk were moved with writhings and contortions, as though the form had life and sense of feeling. The Indian had died in a drunken debauch,and when the flames penetrated to his entrails the alcohol ignited and burned in a blue flame over the body for several minutes. Chief Francisco, who was boss stoker, then replenished the tire, and with a long stick pushed the projecting limbs into the center of the flames, uttering grunts of satisfaction at the successful progress of the cremation. The whole operation required about three hours time, although not much was to be seen of tbe boiiy after tbe first hour. When the burning was over the re maining ashes were buried and the Indians solemnly filed away, mutter ing, in their tongue, the equivalent "Peace to his ashes." Men We Don't Want to Meet. The man who grunts and gasps as he gobbles up his soup, and atevery other mouthful seems threatened with a choking fit. The man who, having by accident been thrown once in your company, makes bold to bawl your name out and to shake your hand profusely when you pass him in the street. The man who, pleading old school fellowship, which you have quite for gotten, never meets you without try ing to extort a five-pound note. * The man who volunteers his criti cism on your new play or picture, and points out its worst faults in presence of your wife. The man who artfully provokes you to play a game of billiards with him, and, though he feigns to be a novice, produces his own chalk. The man who can't sit at your table on any set occasion without getting on his legs to propose some stupid toast. The man who, thinking you are musical, bores you with his notions on the music of the future, of which you know as little as of the music of'the spheres. The man who wears a white hat in the Winter and smokes a pipe when walking, aud accosts you as "old fel low" just as you are hoping to make a good impression 011 some well-dressed lady friends. The man who, knowing that your doctor faces him at table, turns the talk so as to set him talking doctor's shop. The man who, with a look of urgent business, when you are in a hurry, takes you by the button-hole to tell you a bad joke. The man who, sitting just behind you at the opera, destroys half your enjoyment by humming all the airs. The man who makes remarks on your personal adornment, asks you where you buy your waistcoats, and what you paid for your dress-boats. The man who lards his talk with little scraps of French and German after his return from a Continental tour. The man who spoils your pleasure in seeing a new play by applauding in the wrong places, aud muttering in stage whispers his comments on the plot. And, to finish with, the man who, when you draw back slightly to appre ciate a picture, coolly comes and stands in front of you, and then receding, also treads upon your toes.— Punch.

Parties desiring to purchase SHOULD BE ON THE GROUND a few days prior Ie the sal., inorderto EXAMINE THE PROPERTY. Title, UNITED STATES PATENT. Situation. "Centinela," with tho addition ortne "Sau sal Redondo," contains 25,000 acres. The boundary of tbe Rancho commences three and a halfmiles from the city limits of Ijos Angeles, and extends to the Pacific Ocean. Topography. •'Centinela" is mode up of one broad, level, fertile valley of over twenty thousand acres, and beautiful fertile rolling lulls near the ocean. Soil. The soil is an exceedingly fertile loam, and is, without exception, the richest and most productive in Southern California. Its vicin ity to tlie ocean insures a crop without irriga tion. Excellent wlieet has been raised for the last two years upon the hills adjoining the ocean. This wheat field contains 1,000 acres and covers the lightest soil upon the Rancho. There is no alkali or barren land. Semi-Tropical Fruits. There aro a few bearing orange and lime trees upon tbe Centinela, and the fruit they produce is of the largest and finest quality. There is an orchard containing 0,000 orange trees three years old, and 1,700 almond, lime and lemon trees. Tho almond, lime and lemon trees will bear fruit in 1575. The or ange trees will boar in five years. There are 7,000 three-year-old orange trees in the nur sery near the orchard. Fig, pepper and gum trees grow without Irrigation. The entire or chard can be taken care of by three men with six horses. The orchard will be kept undi vided by the company to save the expense of each shareholder having a few trees to take care of. Each share will entitle the owner to about 15 trees in the orchurd and about tlie same number in the nursery. The almond, lime and lemon trees will yield an immedi ate return. In five years each orange tree will produce $20 per annum, or $300 per share tor those now planted. There are (lowers in the garden In bloom every day In the yea Sheep. After the lambing season in .la unary the flock of sheep will number about 14,000 uud they will be kept undivided, to save expenses to the shareholders. This will give about thirty sheep to each share. The sheep will produce, in Increase and wool,over $2 each yearly,over expeuses. They will be grazed upon outlying and unsold lands of the company. The "no fence" law is in force in Los Angeles county, to supply every lot with crystal, cool, sweet wider. Climate. The climate ofthe Centinela is, without ex ception, tlie finest and most equable iv tlie world. It varies but little throughout the year. The mean temperature is about (10 deg. The mercury falls but little below 60de_. iv Winter and rises but little above (10 deg. lv Summer. You sleep under one pair of blan kets and with your bed-room window open every night in tlie year. Agriculture. The soil of the Centinela is admirably adapted for all kinds of grain, vegetables and fruit. Water. The Centinela creek rises upon the rancho and runs through the northern portion of the tract. It affords an abundance of clear spring water. Tlie source of the Centinela creek consists of several natural artesian springs, showing that artesian water can be obtained by boring. « The Town. A square mile is laid off at an eligible point on the tract, with lot* 25x140; avenue 100 feet aud streets 80 feet wide. A stream of water can be brought in so as to supply every lot with crystal, cool, sweet water. Provision will be made for a College and Farm School.

Maktin, General Agent California Immigrant Union—Dear Sir:—l havejust vis ited the "Centinela and Sausal Redondo" Rancho, and drivenoverthe land described in your advertisement. With all my experience In the southern part of California, I have seen nothing to surpass this trivet in fertility of soil, beauty of location, and advantage of easy ac cess and salubrity of climate. Forpurposesof colonization, I know of 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. It can be subdivided into lots ranging from five acres to several hundred acres and every acre of it can be made productive. Water is abundant and convenient. The land ls subject to easy irrigation; and lean vouch for the fact that it will produce anything that flourishes In Los Angeles or Santa Barbara counties, lt Is my confident opinion that the valueof shares In this magnificent tract will be quadrupled within two years—such is the extraordinary influx of immigration to the vicinity of Los Angeles at the present time. Wishing you success In your undertaking, I am, very truly j ours, J. Ross Bbownk. LIVERY AND SALE STABLES. FASHION Livery and Sale Stabie, MACY, WILSON & CO., MAIN atreet, opposite Arcadia *trect.
