Howard, Major Frank Ganahl and Chief Engineer Crawford, leave this morning for the Southern part of the county on a canvassing tour for subscriptions to the stock of the Los Angeles and In dependence Railroad Company. The rumor that the people of Anaheim and vicinity were so opposed to the building of the Independence Road that they would take no stock in it, is, we are informed, without foundation. We are not astonished to hear this. The people of the lower portion of the county cannot overlook the fact that a continuous line of railroad from Ana heim to the mines of Inyo county will be a mine of wealth to them, by af fording a ready market for their sur plus products of every kind. In fact every portion of Los Angeles valley will be benefited by the building of this road. We want a market for what we grow that will not cost half the value of the article in transporting it to the place of sale. Every farmer and every producer iv this valley must see that railroad communication with the mines gives not only a good mar ket but one that will buy all we have to sell. This is an important fact aud one that cannot be set aside or covered up. The people of Anaheim and the farmers of that part of the county will not stand in their own light, and we believe they will meet the committee with the spirit of enterprising citi zens. The Queen of the Antilles. For three centuries the Kings of Spain have ruled with despotic power over the destinies of the people of Cuba, aud, until recently, over all Mexico, Central America, and a large portion of South America —their title to the same having been acquired by the sword, and the subsequent grant of the Pope of Rome. During all this time these vast possessions have been treated by them as the "land of Ophir," whence their coffers were re plenished, and their courtiers and ad herants rewarded by office, with carte blanche powers to oppress and eat out their substance. This policy contin ued uninterruptedly down to the year 1776, when the North American colo nies of Great Britain startled the world by their manly Declaration of Independence. From that time the Spanish colonies took courage, and began to consider the situation. The Orita de Libertad enunciated iv 1810, at the small town of Moselia, Mexico, by the patriot Hidalgo, was the re sult, aud since that time all the vast continental colonies of Spain have suc cessfully thrown off the Spanish yoke and entered upon the experiment of Republican government, with varied success. In all these great struggles our Government granted no material aid, but individuals did, aud the elo quence of Clay in Congress, in behalf of these struggling patriots, was as an "army with banners." In propor tion as the power of Spain decreased on the continent, it was concentrated on the "Queen of the Antilles," which was always held as her base of opera tions against her continental colonies, and down to the present hour she holds that beautiful island within her enfeebled grasp, notwithstanding the numberless unsuccessful attempts of her patriots to throw off the galling yoke. These frequent miscarriages and failures, instead of crushing out the spirit of liberty in that island,have been the "blood of the martyr in strengthening their cause." Hence for the last five or six years, has the wail of the patriot been wafted across tbe waters of the gulf to our shores, and re-echoed from valley to hill-top, and from city to hamlet, calling upon us,as the great conservatives of Liber ty, to reach them an assisting hand Their pathetic appeals have reached, the hearts of nine-tenths of the people of this Republic, and yet our Govern ment seems so absorbed in its own dirty schemes of personal agrandize ment, that their appeals have failed to attract its attention, and these straggling patriots, almost with in hailing distance of our shores, are left to the tender mercies of the "Bourbon butcher." Viewed only in t national point of view, this question iemands the prompt aud serious con sideration of our Government. This island lies almost within the lips of the mouth of the Mississippi, and is the natural key to its commerce—a river that, including its tributaries, drains a country capable of feeding and clothing one-half the civilized world. In the possession of effete Spain, Cuba is, at least, a living menace to this Republic; in the possession of a great naval power it would be humiliation! But, says the casuist, it will never fall into the hands of a great naval power. Are we sure of this? Politically, Eu rope this day is a Vesuvius, ready to burst forth at any time. With heavy balances to adjust, we see war with rapid strides approaching from every quarter. Russia is again turning her attention to "the sick man of Tur key," and Eugland is Jealous of her possessions in the East; France is abiding her time and awaiting her opportunity, whilst Prussia is prepar ing for every emergency, and Austria, writhing under the disgrace inflicted upon her a few years ago by Bis marck, is sullenly awaiting the turn of events; and effete and revolutionary Spain, after passing through tie throes of maternity In bringing forti several forms of Government, has a length discarded the counsels of Cas"ellar, the noblest and purest statesuan she ever produced, and gone batk, like " the sow to her wallow," ant called upon the putative son of Ssrkano and Isabella to give her pea®. The boy has already ascended the throne and is now loudly calling up»n sur rounding monarchies for assistance in maintaining himself in that position, with nothing but the "Queen jf the Antilles" as a consideration! Under these circumstances, what assirance have we that this island —the key to the Mississippi —will not fall into the hands of some great naval power with treaties of alliance, offensive ai,d de fensive, with others? The slothful statesman may say, in answer to all this, "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof;" but we hold that the true standard of greatness in the statesman is to avert dangerous com plications rather than to successfully meet them at great public cost in blood and money when they arise. With Cuba in the hands of a great naval power, the history of the Dardanelles may be repeated and Havana become the port of entry and clearance for the commerce of the Mississippi, and trib ute collected beneath the frowning guns of Moro Castle, whose thunders may be heard on the capes of Florida, one of our sovereign States. As a lib crfy-loving people, it is our duty to aid the struggling patriots of Cuba and to grant them at least belligerent rights. In a national point of view, our safety demands that Cuba should be ours. In 1844, when a speck of war appeared in the horizon with reference to our Northwestern boundary with England, "Fifty-four, forty or fight!" was grafted as a plank in the platform of one of our political parties. The day is not far distant when the legend, "The Queen of the Antilles—a star in the American constellation — peace ably if we can, forcibly if we must," will be adopted as a leading plank in the platform of the American people. WILMINGTON HARBOR. After many unavoidable delays and vexatious interruptions, we think, we may safely say that dredging has fairly begun. Those who have wit nessed the working of the machinery, that are capable of judging, say that everything is in excellent running order. And had it not been for the worthless chains scut from San Fran cisco, from time to time, dredging would have been under full headway several weeks ago. Another chain was received yesterday from the same city. We hope it will stand. But acting upon the principle, we suppose, that "a burnt child dreads the fire," General Boschke has ordered an Eng lish chain from Mew York, which has been thoroughly tested. When this arrives, which will be in a few days, We expect to chronicle some rapid work. The dredging machinery is very powerful; but so far, not one-half of its capacity has been used. The weakness of the chain wouldn't per mit it. As it was the number of breakages of the chain didn't allow a half day's work. We, as well as others, have care fully watched the preparations for this great enterprise, with no little inter est, and all agree that, from some cause or other, Gen. Boschke has been grossly imposed upon. A man came to him with good recommendations to put the machinery together, yet lie proved to be notoriously incompetent, and his entire work had to. be over hauled. While there were some good men among the less responsible em ployees, yet many of them were the merest shirks, which was a double misfortune, occurring when It did, be cause the Railroad Company had every available man in this commu nity employed upon their improve ments. The best iron was purchased, and a good price was paid to a San Francisco man, who had a reputation for such work, to make a chain. This is almost worthless. There were also many other interruptions which we will not mention. Yet, in the midst of all this, General Boschke displayed a perseverence and a good temper that is highly creditable t« that gentle man. But we turn to a more pleasant phase of our enterprise. Constant changes are going on in the bay, and they are all in our favor. The break water is daily becoming more im bedded; as we said some time ago, about ten thousand cubic yards of sand in the line of dredging has been carried away; and the water is cutting a new and straighter channel next to the ocean. More recent examinations have disclosed other changes. Three months ago a dredging map was made for seven feet of water at low tide, in a certain locality; a month later, for eight feet: more recently, for nine feet. In the line of the channel it is also discovered that holes are being scooped at intervals, where the bot tom is soft ; and at the point of the jet ties where the water gets a sort of a whirl, the excavations are very deep. This induces the belief that the scour ing of the water only needs the aid of the dredger at the rocky, hard points to perform a greater portion of the work. And it must be borne in mind, too, that the drift is all seaward, while there is no evidence of shoaling on the outside. As to the direction of the current that scatters this sand, we are not able to say. We merely state the result. Again we record our convictions that our harbor prospects present nothing but the most convincing evi dences of its ultimate, and not very distant, success.— Enterprise. ■ ■ — The Panamint News of February 25th refers as follows to a new mining district in that vicinity: Parties vho have been prospecting some tweity miles to the Southeast of this conp came in a day or two ago, brinung with them some very good ore, md one or two others have become sone wbat elated and have returned vith them for the purpose of forming a .lew district. Some of the croppings from there assay $12 in gold. Wood nd water, we are told, are plentiful, and plenty of good food for animals. Wiere the exact locality is, we are unabfe to ascertain, as tbe parties making the discoveries are quite reticent In »'a tion thereto. We are promised * re port of the new find soon.

San Francisco, March sth.—The investigation of the affairs of the Tax Collector's office by the Finance Com mittee of the Board of Supervisors, was continued yesterday afternoon and adjourned to resume in a few days.' The investigation into corruption in the appointment of teachers was opened yesterday at the Lincoln School by a special committee of the Board of Education. Reporters were excluded. The testimony will, how ever, be made public on the conclus ion of tke investigation. Yesterday the committee examined about fifty witnesses, and the inquiry was re sumed this morning. From authentic information it is known that the ex amination yesterday brought out the fact that Owens, ex-janitor, and Kuh nert, a recent German teacher, who has gone East, approached parties, offering to procure them situations in the School Department for a consider ation. Some witnesses testified that they knew teachers who purchased positions through Owens, Kuhnert and Stewart, but In no case was money traced to any member of the Board, though suspicion is aroused that some went that way. Eight subpoenas were immediately issued. Owens, the ex janitor, is said to be a man of some education, shrewd and cunning. The teachers, in the light of what is now shown, begin to understand many heretotore mysterious changes in their ranks. Democrats Victorious in Maine—Mu nicipal Elections. Portland, Me..
