LOCAL BREVITIES. A large party of excursionists vis ited Artesia yesterday. The Ventura sails for San Francisco to-day. Our courts are getting supremely dull. The Santa Barbara people tbink they have symptoms of the epizootic among their horses. Two teams were loaded at the depot yesterday with 1,800 pounds of general merchandise for Bishop Creek. The new lighter of the liailroad Company, "Mil Billen," was launched at Wilmington yesterday. A race for a purse of $1,000 will come off at the Bark to-morrow be tween Mormon and Don Elipha. The Los Angeles Guards will assem ble at their Armory at 1 p. M. to-mor row sharp. By order. Photographs only $3 per dozen, at Williams & Smith's picture gallery, coruer Spring aud First streets. The shipments from Downey yester day were 1,204 sacks corn, 78 sacks meal, 71 sacks grouud feed and 20 sacks potatoes. Schooner Annie Stoffer, Capt. Joer genson,arrived at Wilmington yester day, six days from Casper, with lum ber for J. G. Juckson.. The railroad agent at Downey was compelled to stop receiving freight for two days last week, for want of space in tlie depot. Tnree hundred aud five boxes of oranges aud seventy bundles of sheep pelts were among tiie shipments from the depot yesterday. German dramatic entertainment aud ball at Turn-Eerein Hall to-uight. Miss Reiflarth appears for the first time in our city as a star on the Ger man stage. Mr. W. H. Martin, General Manager of the California Immigrant Union, who has been in our city supervising tlie Centinela land sale, leaves for his home in San Francisco to-day. The feat of climbing the flag pole on High-school bill was accomplished by Joseph Sandon yesterday. He carried up a cord ami inserted it through the pulley, thus supplying the important requisite for Hying a Bag on Washing ton's Birthday. Locations peculiarly adapted to hor ticultural pursuits aud cultivation of semi-tropical truits are being very rapidly taken, yet occasionally a bar gain presents itself, like those lands now offered by Meserve & Sorby just beyond Spadra, in tbe San Jose valley. Prices and terms beyond competition. A son of Cyrus Sanford was herding cattle out on the Ballona Ranch a few days since, when a large eagle swooped down upon a good sized calf anil car ried it up to a distance of some twenty feet from terra jirma. The bird then let its prize drop. The calf was dam aged considerably, and the boy ran off in dismay. Tlie Los Angeles Immigration and Land Co-operative Association decided at their meeting last night to erect a fine school building on their property as soon.as the sale is concluded. The building will cost between $3,000 and and $4,000, and will be the finest of its kind In the comity outside of Los An geles. Officer Bilderrain yesterday arrested Peter Rice, a somewhat notorious character, concealed in some bushes on Alameda street. The man had with blna a fine buggy robe, which be had doubtless stolen from some car riage. Subsequently Officer Cruz traced up and recovered anather lot of stolen property which Rice had sold to one of our merchants. The culprit was securely lodged In the jug. The owner of tbe buggy-robe can recover it by calling MI the Marshal and proving property. Vivian's Company drew one of the largest houses of the season to Tur n Hall last night. Instead of "The Morning Call," as advertised, Vivian's olio was substituted and filled the bill excellently. The burlesque, "Pocahontas," concluded the enter tainment, and with it the engagement of the company in our city. Vivian aud the members of his company hold a sure place in the esteem of the Los Angeles public, and they will always be welcomed when they chance to come again. The Express reports that a new bank is about to be started here by a com bination of capital from San Diego, San Francisco and this place. A lot of 25 feet trout, on Main street, next to Chauvin's store, has been purchased for for $12,500, and a flue building will be erected thereon for the bank. Four of tho directors are residents of this county and three of Sau Diego. The general business manager and cashier will be ex-Mayor Toberman. We un derstand that the work of demolish ing the old building on tlie property purchased will commence about the Ist of March aud the bank structure will be pushed to % speedy completion. We learn also that the projectors of the enterprise propose to make it a National Gold Bank of issue. Miss Jennie Leys. Miss Jennie Leys will lecture at the Court House at 2 p. m. this afternoon and 7:30 in the evening. Subject at 2 p. M-, "Love, the Life Essence of True Religion." Subject in the evening, "A Spirit's Charge Against Sectarian ism." Miss Leys is a remarkable woman. With a strong intellectuality and grat natural speaking ability, she yet believes herself but the instrument of a Power invisible to the world. Brought up and educateed in the old, rigid Scotch Presbyteriau school of religiou, she is a spiritualistic enthu siast. She is the most intellectual, the most sincere and intelligent spirit ual lecturess we have ever met, and we are curious to know if her ideas and arguments are as original and terse as a speaker as she presents them in con versation.

Gould, and a poem by J. H. Blanchard, interspersed with choruses under the direction of Professor Parker. Tlie Los Angeles Social Club will give an invitation party at their rooms, which prmises to be a very brilliant affair. BEAR VALLEY. [Correspondence Sun Bernardino Argus.] February 17, 1875. Times are getting quite lively with us in the Bear valley mining camp. Buildings are going up very fast, and many more would be put up, but for want of lumber many building lots will remain vacant at present. The Gold Mountain Gold Mining Company have at last completed their seven mile flume and are getting ready to start up their mill, which I think will run by the 15th of next month. There are a great many strangers coming and going: many prospectors are out, aud some are working on claims of recent discovery. A company in Holcomb is trying to get down to the gold dust in the placer claims—with what success is not yet ascertained. Very few idle men are around our camp, and I think the time is not far distant when every man who wants work will find something to do. J would not advise anyone to come at present—not until the mill starts, and thei! the company will, I think, put ou more miners, and there will be room for some more laborers iv the camp. There seems to be a misunderstand ing about the mail contract to our place. The contract has expired for carrying the mail to Holcomb valley, and the Postmaster is appointed for Bairdstowu, and no contract to be let for that place. Jay. Resolutions. Merrill Lodge, I. O. G. T. Whereas, It has pleased the Com mon Father, in whom are the issues of life and death, to remove from the midst of his usefulness and in the prime of his manhood, our beloved and worthy brother, J. 0.

Bright and lair thy natal morning, Eleven yeurs ago to-day, Came a baby in-life's dawning, Through earl h's labyrinth to stray. All the grand and "noble d renin lug Centered muud they, little one, The ideal sweetly seeming In thy future early won. With thy blue eyes' dreamy wonder And thy wavy locks of gold, Looking ever over yonder Where the pearly gates unfold; With thy face of baby sweetness; Baby accents most dlvin,e;— Years have stole these in their lieot ness, But the little girl Is mine. I have watched tbe bud unfolding— Read each promise written there; Miiglc gifts far years are holding. You'll fulfil each promise rare; Never shull a doubt come stealing, Through the night or ln the iluy| No death knell must e'er some pealing Where my cherished hopes may stray. I have urged thee, ever leading, Up the path where Knowledge trod; Listen to her winsome pleading, It Will lift thee nearer I iod. Up, beyond the worlds of splendor, Leaving curl hly things afar, Though,tbe cord that leads is slender, It will reach beyond tbe star. Little daughter, may no sorrow Cast Its shadow o'er thy track; Would Mint ln the great to-morrow I could bold ull trouble back. Would that I could bear tbe burden, Take the pain and meet the strife; All thy future should be Eden- Joy's wand should rule thy life. Yet, howe'er we love our treasures, Ood hath willed anu it is so, Each must bear their pain and plea>ure— Weak or strongly meet their woe. We can never lift the curtain That divides the Now aud Then; Never can be truly certain Of the destinies of men. Yet, my darling, blue-eyed daughter, If thy mother's hand could mould, It would never tire nor fatter Until death hud froze it cold. It would reach beyond the portal. Into all Ihe great and good, Until earth should hold immortal Mary's perfect womanhood. I will wish for thee all blessings, In tlie luture's Joy and strife; Should you meet the world's caressing, Parity must guide thy life. Ah! uueridn, we ull cherish Hopes that rise above the clod; Mil) thy child-fail Ii never perish, But be anchored nearer Ood. ORANGE. Au luvltiug Community— New School House Proposed Narrow tisnre Railroad IHe "4». O. ©." Society An lotei CUtllig taller from "lx>ie." An urea of fifty square miles in the Southern part of our county is about the extent of a tract of land knowu as Richland. .Ou this tract as choice directed, persons have recently purchased hundreds of acres, others, if for no other reason it would seem than for society's sake, have taken from one to forty acres adjoining each other, forming in this manner CHARMING VILLAGES Whose inhabitants seem as a unit, so congenial are they in sentiment und pursuit, and if anything beneath the sun Is calculated to secure happiness it must he in forming such communities as these, where the moderate wealth of each individual is an incentive to some exertion; where the soil pro duces almost everything that soil can bring forth; where all enjoy the love liest of climates; where each oue seems intent not only to beautify his respective home, but also to cultivate his neighbor's good will, by means of that attention and kindness, which is sure to bring peace and contentment to the common home of all. We will not refer particularly to the beautiful villages of Tustin City or of Sauta Ana, built upon the same tract as Orange, but rattier confine our short description to the latter to which our experience Is better suited. THE TOWN OF ORANGE, (So called from the peculiar adapta bility of its soil to the luxuriant growth of the orange) five and one half miles in a Southeast direction from Anaheim, is scarcely three years old, and yet, numbers hundreds of in habitants. Tlie average attendance of the graded public school, under the able management of Mr. Robert Fur long, numbered the last term over one hundred. The Sunday School, under the supervision of Mr. L. J. Lockhart, a gentleman of wealth and education, numbers ninety-six attendants. The building of a new and more commo dious school-house is contemplated and will soon be effected; the school furniture, however, belonging to the present school building is of the latest and most approved pattern, udapted to the best of school looms. A narrow-gauge railroad connecting with the Anaheim branch is much talked of, and the Railroad Company have already conferred with the peo- Ele of Orange in reference to the uilding of a bridge across the Santa Ana. A Orange Hall and handsome church have beeu erected; a first-class country store, under the management of the Grangers; a Postofßce, carpen ter shop, paint shop aud blacksmith shop are some of the conveniences to be found in tlds progressive and ad mirable colony. The pleasures of po lite society are not forgetten, and teachers of music are encouraged and well patronized. As an evidence of the literary taste of the people we would call attention especially to the fact that: THE TRIPLE O. O. 0. SOCIETY Of Orange, devoted to literature and music, gave an entertainment on the evening of tlie 12th inst. for the benefit of the public school library of that district which, every way considered, was a perfect success, resulting, in a financial point of view, beyond the society's most sanguine expectations. From this we might infer that there exists among the peo ple of Orange a unanimity of feeling and a proper disposition to encourage the efforts of the literary part of their community. While the object on this occasion is not by many considered as of the most popular class, yet from the interest displayed on that evening by the people of Orange, nothing could then have been more popular. The display made by the O. 0. O. So ciety was indeed admirable. Let us stand for one moment among the crowd of ladies, gentlemen and little ones who constituted the audience on that particular night of the 12th, and listen to the music of the orchestra; now see the curtain rise upon a gar den scene, real and true to nature; the anistic landscape view in the distance, the sparkling fountain's flow and hear the music of its waters, as they mur muring pass away; you will agree j with us, we think, that it was indeed "a thing of beauty. Ami now witness that lady, fair and young, who lends her presence to the enchanted scene, and you would add, "A JOY FOREVER." And so, delightful Orange, we leave you, und have nothing said about the Kant' Ana, that, swelled by wintry storms, booms around you; nor those giant ground-swells that mark an in terval in the space 'twixt earth and heaven, that patronizing seem to look uimn you; nor of. tho ocean's roar, which you may hear; nor its bound less waters, which from your streets and houses you may see. No! noth ing could we say, nor nothing could we add to your perfection. AH we might do is to hope that other com munities, while they may not be blessed in full measure as you are blessed, may yet have a little of your energy, something of your congeniali ty, and may strangers feel, as we have felt, the sweets of Orange hospitality.

Fiy and let your wiugs be love, Fly and stretch your flight above; Fly, while lite and grace are glv'n, Fly from hell and My to heaven. —Moravian Almanac. The Law and the Gospel. Some believe that Christ died, but that after all we must do a great deal. We must repent; we must weep; we must agonise; but if we think that our salvation depends on anything we do to merit it, we might as well be Jews at once. Salvation has been done and God sends us word and that is the Gos pel It is glad tidings. The bjessings of the Old Testament are contingent upon an "If." The blessings of the New Testament are prefaced by "Therefore." When God's people used "If," nothing was done—men failed. But when Christ accomplished his work, God's people say "Therefore," because all thing are done. It may be asked: Do we make void the Law? Paul says, we establish it. The things that the law tried to do, but failed, we get through grace. If you want salva tion, or faith, or any good thing, you are promised it in tlie Gospel. The law was given that we might realize how much sin there is in us, just as a mirror shows us a soiled face of which we would have been uncon scious. We would never have felt the need of a Saviour without a sense of sin. The Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith—Gal. iii., 24. When Moses went down from Sinai to ask the people if they would have the new law, they said, O yes, every bit of it—all the words of the Lord, but it was not a month before they made their golden calf. Even now Christians need many failures before they will learn how utterly helpless they are—that they can keep God's law only when the heart is right. "The law made noth ing perfect, but the bringing iv of a better hope did."—Heb. vii., 19. God sent his angels as ambassadors—to proclaim glad tidings to all people. What was this glad news? "Unto us is born a Saviour"—not one to help us save, but a Saviour. He was the Lamb of God that should "take away the sins of the world." "On Him was laid the iniquity of us ajl." This was His work, and he said, "I have fin ished the work Thou gayest Me to do.' 1 Now it is not our sin that keeps us from God, but it is our unbelief that keeps us from availing ourselves of his atonement. We may go with this blessed gospel to the most degraded being on earth and say. "Your sins were laid on Christ, and if you will believe it, they may and will be for given." Now if Christ has done this work and sends us word that lie has, if we don't believe him we can't be helped. We grieve God by not be lieving this glorious news of salvation, just as a child would grieve its mother by doubting her word. Christ says, "O trust me, and you shall be deliv ered from the penalty and the power of sin." Jesus is enough to save. Ask for nothing else. Look only to Him. Only believe God's record of His Son, and you will be more than conqueror. TO BUILDERS.
