It is said that the scandal has doubled the sale of Beeclier's pews arid run Tilton's "Tempest Tossed" into the thirteenth edition. Rev. John Francis will preach in Spadra to-morrow at 11 a. m. Sub ject, "The Origin and Excellence of the Bible." The poll-tax is new due and Mr.Bet tis, the newly appointed Deputy Col lector, will be out In a few days tak ing it in.

The surveyors for the Los Angeles and Independence Road completed one of their preliminary lines into thecity the other day, coining in on Sun Pedro street. Mr. McCaffrey, the telegraph oper ator at the depot, went to Anaheim yesterday to put up the regular instru ments aud batteries for the oflice at that place. The notorious roughs, Began and Driscoll, were fined $30 each by Judge O'Melveny yesterday, and condemned to remain in the county jail until the tines are paid. M.

A Santa Barbara debating club is going to settle tbe question whether the United States should bave domin ion over the entire American Conti nent. We await the decision with interest. A paper is to be started at Lompoc. The Santa .Barbara Press wonders why some people complain because Southern California is not heaven, when we have green peas and new potatoes in March. The rush to the Cottage Photograph Gallery, on First street, near Spring, still continues. The proprietors, Wil liams & Smith, are turning out fine pictures of all kinds at prices lower than ever before in this city. A map of the Forbes tract, now the property of Mr. Arthur Bullock, was filed for record yesterday with the County Reorder. The tract 'lies be tween Pico, Figueroa and Charity streets, and contains about 40 lots, each 80x230 feet. This will doubtless offer fine opportunities for parties de sirous of purchasing cheap residence lots. The County Board of Examination is still in session at Good Templars' Hall, but will conclude its labors to day. Of eighteen candidates who pre sented themselves on the first day, but twelve remain, the others having with drawn from the examination.

A public entertainment w ! ll be given at Wilson College on Saturday evening, the 13th inst., to consist of charades, tableaux, and vocal and in strumental music.

Wohlers has on hand'a number of the famous Eureka Wash ing Machines, patented in 1867. They are the most complete of the kind iv the market, being so arrange 1 that anything, from an army blanket to the finest lace, can be washed in them with very little labor. Mr. Wohlers in introducing this machine desires only that persons will come and examine ii and then judge for themselves. The machine can be seen at the main fac tory, No. 3 Spring street, or at the hardware store of Harper & Long. The arrival of the ties and iron for the Main Streetand Agricultural Park Railroad will be the signal for tbe early completion of the road to Pico street. The materials are afloat and are daily expected at Wilmington. Within forty days after their arrival here, without accident, the cars will be running. We learn that those in terested in the enterprise have de termined not to wait until just pre vious to the county fail antl races, but to proceed immediately upon complet ing the road to Pico street to pusb it through to Agricultural Park. Sale of the Falrvlew Tract. It has been but a few days since Mr. Williams notified the public of his in tention to dispose of this tract. The advantages offered, however, were readily comprehended by our men of means, and the sale was well attended and proved entirely satisfactory. Dur ing the day it was prosecuted on the grounds, the lots being knocked down by the auctioneer's hammer at a lively rate, and at night the sale was con tinued at the auction house of Jones & Bland. The entire sales were as fol lows: Lot. Hik. Ami H. J. Crow 2 2 «11)0 00 do 4 2 150 On Chas. Arnold 6 2 110 no August Klelm 8 2 Wl 80 do do 10 2 WOO C. Arnold 5 2 100 00 A.

This is the way the Santa Barbara Press treats one of the fault-finding visitors at that place: "That corres pondent of the Cincinnati Commercial is advised to carry his troublesome breathing apparatus back to the gen ial air of Ohio. The average invalid does not find the air of Santa Barbara too stirring during the greater portion of the day to allow a person with weak and sensitive lungs to expose himself with impunity. The most delicate consumptive can spend the greater portion of almost every day in the open air, as the greater number of sufferers from pulmonary diseases who have found restoration here will tes- "This querulous invalid remarks the lamentable fact that we have no hospital or poor house in our county, but adds that' Colonel Hollister keeps a private poor-house, ten miles up in the couutry.' As he has been one of the many partakers of the Colonel's boundless hospitality aud kindness, he includes himself, with nearly every body else in the city, in his category of paupers. And perhaps that will explain why he tarries so long with his peculiarly sensitive organization, iv this inhospitable clime. If so, we will cheerfully head a subscription lor means to send him home to his moth er, and a petition that travel on the overland route be made easier, for his convenience." — .—♦ —_——— The Odd Fellows at Solano dedicated their now hall on Monday evening last. Wilmington Items. [From the Enterprise.] Since last week considerable work has been done on the new wharf. Another railroad track has been laid, ami pile-driving is now going on with a rush. Two vessefs floated np to tlie wharf this morning—t he schooner C. H. Mer riphew, from San Francisco, with I'JO.UOO feet of lumber for the railroad company, and the three-masted schooner Una, with a locomotive and railroad material. One by one they drop iv. Patience! The good time is coming. Our "first men" in the piscatorial line, Charles and Martin Sweetzer, struck a real "bonanza" down the Bay last Tuesday. They say they made a drag near the breakwater and drew about a ton of smelts to the shore. They secuwd over 800 pounds — all they could getaway with—and allowed more than half to escape. This story is decidedly "fishy," nevertheless it is true. Our semi-tropical country was on its bail behavior yesterday. We had a good stiff "Norwester," which was a little cold. While the passengers were waiting for the steamer to 'Fris co. '>ne chap was observed enveloped in a forty-pound overcoat, sitting on the sunny sitle of the house, reading Truman's "Semi-Tropical California." No doubt he believes the author of that book a near relative of Baron Munchausen. The Way a Governor Courted. This is the way Governor Chamber lain, of South Carolina, did up his courting, and the kind of a womau he won. The story is told by a Washing ton correspondent: In the album of a lady friend he came across the picture of a young girl, with sweet pure eyes and haunt ingly lovely face. In his undemon strative manner he asked her name and whereabouts, and, without stop ping to ask the advice of any mutual friend, determined to see it the real picture compared favorably with the ideal, and if so, and the thing were possible, to gain the young lady for his bride. He saw and was conquered, not only by the personal beauty of sweet Alice lngersoll, but by her addi tional charms of mind and manner. He saw her but twice and hardly seemed to notice her, addressing but very little conversation directly to her, but immediately upon his return to Columbia wrote her a letter such as girls dream about as coming from their Ideal lovers; and sweol Alice,astonish ed, pleased, delighted that such a re served, intellectual man should be charmed by her beauty andsimpliclty, said "Yes," and they were married three or four months afterward. Miss lngersoll was the daughter of an emi nent lawyer, who was at one time Attorney-General of the State of Maine and a warm friend of Senator Fessen den. After the father's death their ample income ceased, and the eldest daughter determined to put her tine education to some practical use. Ac companying her mother she came to Washington and both obtained posi tion in the newly-organi/ed Banking Bureau, over which Mr. McCulloch was then Controller. For years the girl, fresh from school, occupied a clerical desk, making the lone room all the brighter for her presence. She .»»»«■ feW — T ffLmrlnn, unliU>l)-hsiiroil gill, with, large blue eyes, shadeu by dark lashes, dark penciled eye-brows,white teeth, and complexion of that vivid pink and white which the partial gods only bestow upon New England girls, and no others.

The Directors of the Los Angeles Immigra tion and Land Co-operative Association would announce that at their laic sales over l,6tXi acres of land was sold; the greater part of whl di went to actual settlers who will im prove the same at once. Desirous of disposing of the remaining lands —nearly 2,000 acres—in orderto make the s. i tlement us strong as possible, aud at the same time give the Association an opportunity lo subdivide other ranches, t ie managers now offer at, Public Auction, the remaining lands, on the 6th, 7th and Bih of April, 1875, when the purchase! will be allowed to take the lands in parcels to suit At their own Figures. The entire tract will be sold without reserve. A Public School building, to cost over #4,000 is now being erected and will be completed before the second sale. The percent ige, ol the last sale devoted to the erection of I his build ing amounted to over $2,000, and the same percentage (10 percent, on town property and 254 per cent On farm property i «-iil be given for the same purpose from the proceeds or I be next sale. Soil. The soil is of a rich sandy loum and free from alkali. There aie two oi three small pieces of alkali ground on the tract, but they will be pointed out to purchasers so that they may know what they are buying. Tlie char acter of the soil is more like the warm mesa lands of the country, than the low, damp corn lands.
