CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY MARCH 11, 1875. LOCAL BREVITIES. The term trial jury in the County Court was yesterday discharged. Au express leaves the Postoffice at 2 p. M. each day for Santa Monica. Seven hundred hogs and 325 sacks of corn were shipped from Downey yes terday. Judge O'Melveuy yesterday received' intelligence of the death of his mother and sister who were living in Illinois. Miss Turner, at the Postoffice book and news store, has the Herald and Herald pamphlet for sale. The new Babcock hook and ladder truck was placed in the engine house, at the disposal of the city yesterday afternoon. The Ventura was delayed at Wil mington yesterday and passengers for San Diego did not leave till the after noon. The Ventura arrived yesterday with 100 passengers and 460 tons of freight. She will sail for San Francisco to morrow. Frank Luck has some good fortune iv store for him, which he can learn by addressing Postoffice box 248 Sac ramento. Where is the lucky man ? A juror presented himself in the County Court yesterday too drunk for any use, and was fined $5 for con tempt. The revenue officers completed the work of removing the bonanza brandy from Tarbox's distillery yesterday. Altogether 61,700 gallons have been confiscated. Captain Mark Harloe makes his final sea voyage with the present trip of the Ventura. He will retire with his wife aud family to his ranch in Sau Luis Obispo county. An infant son of J. L. Ward named Hal Houston died yesterday afternoon. The funeral will take place from the family residence, Hill street, between Second and Third, at 4 p. m. to-day. There is to be a Temple of the Jan nisaries of Light at San Buenaven tura. This Order, taking its origin in this city, promises soon to be wide spread and popular. The second civil case of Gabriel vs. Newman was concluded in the Dis trict Court yesterday, and, like the first, proved a failure. The jury failed to agree and were discharged. The Grand Lodge of F. & A. M. of the State of California will convene in this city on Tuesday the 23d Inst., for the purpose of laying the corner-stone of the Spring Street M. E. Church. The Cottage Photograph Gallery on First near Spring street is the best and cheapest place to get pictures taken in this city. Good work and cheap worn is the motto of Williams 6 Smith. Our friend Mike Madigan leaves us this week for an assesing trip to Eliz abeth Lake, Fort Tejon and the sur rounding country. He anticipates a rough journey and will be gone about three weeks. An advertising wagon, painted in grotesque style aud directing at ten tion to the People's Palace, patroled the streets yesterday. Another me tropolitan feature; one by one we catch the tricks of trade. The jury in the case of McArthur, tried for manslaughter, returned at 7 o'clock last evening, after being out six hours, and reported that they could not agree on a verdict. They were then discharged. The case will go to another trial. It is reported that since the Great Register was printed, in 1873, 1,400 names have been added to the list. This, with the intervening additions, will give us in the vicinity of 7,000 votes next Fall. Allowing the usual average, this would make the popula tion of our county about 35,000. The carpenter shop of M. Choynski was placed on rollers yesterday and moved from the Odd Fellows' lot, on Spring street to the opposite side of the street below First. This move was made in anticipation of the sale of the lot or the building of au Odd Fellows' Hall upon it. The Express hold* it no evidence against a Good Templar when he is found with a bottle of whisky under his coat; he must have it under bis skin to signify. A brick in his hat wouldn't do either we suppose, but he must needs have it in his stomach. Here's logic. A little row between John Rodgo, known as "Happy Jack," and John Robert*hi occurred on Los Angeles street yesterday evening. When otflcer Bilderrain put in an appearance the belligerents had each other by the hair and were hammering away lus tily. They were both lodged in the cooler. A badly deluded young man who has no conception of. what he is wish ing for thus expresses himself: " If I was a lokle editor, wouldn't I have a time ? I wouldn't print a cussed word for less'n a$ a line. I'd get my grub and so forth free, & tickets to the shows; I wouldn't pay for buggy hier; and wouldn't I ware good close!" That's all very nice, but let him be interviewed by a man with a six shooter — a big man with a six shooter! Five thousand copies of the New Italy were issued from the Herald press yesterday and an additional five thousand will be printed in a few days. The paper, so far as it relates to information concerning Los An geles valley, is one of the finest ever issued in this section. It answers the thousand and one questions pro pounded by Eastern correspondents about our social, moral and political status, the cost of living, wages paid laborers, our natural advantages, the prices of land, etc. It is lust the thing to advertise our* city and county abroad, and our Chamber of Commerce have taken a wise step in securing 5,000 copies of it for general distribution. ST. PATRICK'S .DAY. How it will be Celebrated. Our Irish citizens have made full preparations for honoring the anni versary of their country's Patron Saint, on Wednesday next, tho 17th hist. We are promised that it will be the grandest affair of its kind ever given in Los Angelas. At 12 o'clock m. a procession will be formed con sisting of the Irish Benevolent Socie ty, the Irish Literray Society, and cit izens, ou Arcadia street right rest ing on Main. At 12:30 promptly, the procession will move, taking up the following line of March: Up Main street to the Plaza, countermarch ou Main street, down Main to Sixth street, along Sixth to Spring street, up Spring to Tum-Verein Hall, where an oratiou will be delivered by Steph en M. White, Esq., after which a few patriotic songs will be sung by the la dies of Los Angeles. Mr. Senry King will act as Marhal of the Day. In the evening a grand ball will be given in Turn-Verein Hall, to which the youth and beauty of the city will be attract ed, as well as a few old maids and bachelors. The proceeds of the ball will be donated to the wives and chil dren of Irish patriots who are incarce rated in English prisons There will be a fine turn out aud a fine time generally. THE RACES. ('otnpllmcntary Knee to lludil Ooble mill Wife. The race given yesterday at Agricul tural Park came off very successfully. It was a pleasant day and a large crowd was in attendance. It was thought by some that Budd Doble would drive one of the horses, but such was not the case. The race was for a purse of $50— $30 to the first and $20 to the second; mile heats, three in five, to harness. There were three entries: Mr. W. J. Welch named Pauline, Mr. Askin Rubber Boy, and Mr. Campbell Los Angeles Maid. Pauline took the first purse and Los Angeles Maid the sec ond. The first heat was won by Pau ltne; time, 2:55; Los Angeles Maid second and Rubber Boy last. The sec ond heat was won by Pauline in the same time and the others iv the same E)sition. In tbe third heat Rubber oy came In ahead, but the heat was declared void, It being claimed that the horse broke and ran some distance. Pauline won the fourth heat in 2:49; Rubber Boy second and Los Angeles Maid distanced. The betting was about two to one in favor of Pauline against the field. Betting on Rubber Boy and the Maid stood even. 'Compulsory Educaiion. San Francisco, as will be seen by the following item from. the Alia, is about to test the legality of the law passed by the last Legislature. The result will be awaited with some solic itude. The general impression is that the law cannot be enforced: "During the last session of the Legislature, a bill was passed requiring every parent and guardian in this State, having control of children between the ages of eight aad fourteen jrcavo, to u«n<t such children to a public school for at least two-thirds or the time during which school is insession. Certain pro visions excusing them from attendance on account of sickness are made in the bill. Tlie law has as yet proved a dead letter, but it is understood that one of the Truant Officers will shortly be in structed by the Board of Education to make au arrest, so that the matter can be tested in the Courts. Spanish Items. [Translated for the Herald from I-a Cronica] The subscription list started by La Cronica for the relief of the families of Estrado and Cota, executed at Sacra mento last month, now amounts to $91 90. Ex-Governor Don Pio Pico shows his generosity with $30. Don Eulogio F. de Celis, in resum ing his duties as editor-in-chief of La Cronica, says to his readers: "We are old acquaintances, and with a few words I will introduce myself. It is customary for old friends to indulge in a prolonged and hearty shake of the hands in meeting after along absence. With this short article, let us join hands and wish each other success." About 20 days ago Don Joaquin Lo pez discovered a gold mine in San Fraucisquita Canon, supposed to be rich. Epimeuio Guzman of this city, has invented a bell, made of wood, which produces sounds as clear aud strong as one cast from metal. He will apply for a patent for bis invention. John Begau, the man under arrest on a charge of manslaughter commit ted in Salt Lake.was before the County Court yesterday on a writ of habeas corpus. The case was tried and sub mitted, and a decision will be rendered to-day. Shoultl he be released, how ever, he will be re-assted as an escaped convict from the Michigan Peniten tiary. Mr. C. Ruthard No. 132 Main street, has engaged in a business entirely new iv this city. He is in the wood scroll and carving line, and is an adept in the art. We have on our table what appears to be a miniature stump, made by him, which, on ex amination, turns out to have secreted beneath its lid au inkstand. The whole is a neat and injenious piece of workmanship. We advise the curious to visit Mr. Ruthard's workshop. Teachers' Examination. The results of the examination last week have been announced in the county press. At a future time a more - detailed account will be given in this column. More School-Houses. The Board of Education will soon present to this community a practical plan for raising $8,000 or $10,000 with which to purchase lots and erect five new school-houses. Let all be ready and willing to sustain the Board. Suicide. Tublock, March B.—A man named L. P. Loyd committed suicide here last night by drowning himself in a water trough. He had beendrinklug to excess and is supposed to have bad an attack of delirium tremens. He was a native of New York, aged 47 years. EDUCATIONAL COLUMN. [Edited by the Teachers of the Public Schools of Los Augeles county.] Dr. Kurtz's Lecture. On the afternoon of the 2d,Dr. Kurtz favored the pupils of the High School and the first grammar grade with a very interesting lecture. His subject was the anatomy, physiology and hy giene of the ear. By the use of dia grams and models he made the sub ject interesting and profitable to his attentive hearers. It is hoped tlie Doctor will continue his lectures. Dr. Brooke has promised to address the pupils. Will not other physicians do like wise. We promise a cordial greeting and an appreciative audience to all who may respond to the call. That Beautiful Present. Mrs. Truman's timely donation of a handsome ease of shells is very much appreciated by the pupils of the High .School. As the members of the Senior and Middle classes were just com mencing the study ofconchology these specimens were exactly what they needed. Who will follow the worthy exam ple set by Mrs. Truman? Donations of shells, minerals, natural curiosities, apparatus and books are respectfully solicited. [The above items, prepared for last week's paper, were crowded out by press of matter. ] City Schools for the Month Ending March 5. HIGH SCHOOL —IIK. LCCKY AND MISS HAWKS.

The ad vantages of such investmenss will ap pear in the cultivated tastes of the pupils instructed under tho genial in fluence of the sweet sounds produced by them. Artesia. The first building erected in this promising village will be a $4,000 school-house. The contract has been awarded and the work, perhaps, com menced. With the best school-house in the county, outside of this city, with a genial climate, with rich soil, with abundance of water, and with energetic, public spirited men as stockholders, Artesia must soon be come one of the most attractive places in Southern California. Success to any community the corner stone of whose prosperity is a public, school house such as the one described. Is it Right? The County Board of Examination have resolved not to renew any cer tificate more than one time. As there are two sides to this question let it be discussed in the educational column. COURT REPORTS.
