The Lodge, Green Meadows, Los Angeles, LOCAL BREVITIES. The Ventura sails for San Francisco to-day. Tlie width of Figueroa street has at last been defined as 89 feet. The Council will hereafter hold its sessions iv the evening. Mr. W. P. Myer, an attorney from New Haven, Connecticut, was admit ted to the Los Angeles bar yesterday. Not content with a court-house aud the prospect of a railroad depot, San Bernardino wants a seminary. Dunsmoor Bros, finished moving into their new store in the Postoffice block yesterday. Mr. C. Jacoby, editor aud proprietor of the Sued Ca/ifornische Post, leaves for San Francisco to-day for a week's absence on a business trip. The steamer San Luis arrived at Wilmington yesterday with 40 tons of railroad iron and the same weight of oil and powder. And now there is a rumpus about the new Babcock hook and ladder truck. Some of our Couneilmen would find fault with an angel's pin-feather. An entertainment will be given at Wilmington to-morrow evening for the benefit of the College. Professor T. A. Saxon will favor the company with some of his fine readings. The mem here of Golden Rule Lodge No. 00, J. O. O. F.,are notified that an important meeting will be held at their hall this evening at 7£ o'clock Every member is requested to be present. An up-country paper makes this announcement: " Born—To the wife of Allen M. Hicks, a son; thanks to Dr. Cleveland." We wonder what Mr. Hicks thinks about that. It is reported that the Grand Lodge of F. & A. M. of the State of California will convene in this city on Tuesday, 23d inst., for the purpose of laying the corner-stone of the Spring street M. E. Church. The writ of habeas corpus on the application of Beegan was granted by Judge O'Melveny yesterday, but the prisoner was immediately remanded to jail, on the ground that he was an es caped convict from Utah. Our prayers and tears and entreaties have at last been heeded; our great drops of inky sweat have been re warded. Five hundred dollars are to be expended to improve and beautify the city plazas. Glory enough for six weeks. We are pleased to be able to an nounce that Mr. Geo. B. Davis, pro prietor of the Alden fruit drying works, who has been quite ill for some time, is now rapidly recovering and expects to be about again in a few days. Mr. J. E. Small, living at tbe mouth of City Creek, near San Bernardiuo, informs the Argus that he has luxu riated in ripe tomatoes all Winter.and that he had green peas one month ago. He Bays no frost visits his place in the Winter time, and yet he is a thousand feet above this valley. Williams Higgins, the man who made Booth United States Senator, has been spending a few days in this city with his family. He returns to day per Ventura, leaving his family to enjoy for a season the balmy air of Los Angeles. This is Mr. Higgins' first visit to this valley, and with his usual good judgment he predicts a bright Future for Los Angeles valley. We had a call yesterday from Messrs. G. L. Bilby and J. Hudion. These gentlemen started from Del Norte, Colorado, on the 16tb of last Novem ber, and have traveled since then some two thousand miles through New Mexico, Arizoua and California. They report that the roads are mostly in good condition. The gentlemen come to Los Angeles county for the purpose of settling. Messrs. W. J. Welch and William Donaldson have made arrangements for two races which promise to be very interesting and the chances are that considerable money will change hands on their results. The races are set for the Ist and 3d of May, the stakes be ing $1,000 a side for each race. A de posit of $1,000 forfeit money has been made by the parties. This looks as though they mean business. Little Jennie B is a bright little three-yeas-old, and promises to be fully up to the progressive spirit of the times. A few days ago, Jennie's mamma was engaged in the domestic duty of baking gingerbread—those large native American gingerbreads, known to all Western and Southern boys as sections and quarter-sections. Well, Jennie's mamma caught her stowed away in a remote corner of the pantry, with one of the aforesaid sec tions, and said in emphatic terms: "Why, Jennie, what are you doing with that cake?" Jennie —•'Oh, mamma, I am just cutting it up into building lots." In a few remarks addressed to the Council yesterday, Dr. Lucky stated that the Board of Education contem plate the construction of five new school houses aud considerable en largements of two others before the opening of the next Fall term of the public schools. For this an axpendi ture of $10,000 will be required, which will be submitted to a vote of the ieople. At the next session of the iegislature, the Board will petition for permission to sell the Bath-street and Spring-street schools and devote the proceeds to the construction of a large edifice similar to the High School in the Southwestern part of the city.

Au Injured Wile Seeks Vengeance Upon the Favorite »f Her Faltblenti Husband. [8. F. Bulletin, March 9th.l Much commotion was caused on Kearney street about 10 o'clock this forenoon by a desperate encounter which occurred in the lodging-house at No. 323, the participants being Mrs. Bonnet, wife of B. Bonnet, asphaltum worker and brick-maker at No. 402 Montgomery street, and a woman known as Kate Crowley. As might be inferred without further explanation, the difficulty had reference to Mr. Bonnet's disregard of the marriage vows, and was one of those episodes liable to occur at any time in an un wholesome social atmosphere. The encounter was fierce, and by an unac countable chance was unattended with fatal consequences. The woman Kate Crowley occupied apartments in the lodging-house mentioned, where she was maintained, as presumed, by Mr. Bonnet. She was engaged in ironing this forenoon, when her peaceful do mestic duties were suddenly inter rupted by the entrance of Mrs. Bonnet. This lady was attended by a sympa thetic friend named Mrs. Rhoda, wife of a citizen engaged in the retail liquor traffic somewhere on the city front. As soon as Mrs. Bonnet entered the apartments and perceived the object or her hatred, she leveled a four-bar reled Sharp's shooter and opened it brisk fire at short range, but with very erratic aim. The third shot, however, took eftect in a slight degree, plowiug a furrow of several inches along Miss Crowley's scalp, about on a line where that lady was accustomed to part her hair ordinarily. A fourth shot was prevented by a clinch, aud the fight was continued desperately at close quarters, until the uproar attracted persons who separated thecontcstants. Kate Crowley succeeded in throwing Mrs. Bonnet to the floor after the third shot, and wrenching the pistol from her hand she commenced beating iter over the head. Mrs. Bonnet mean time was active, aud laying hold of a warm flat-iron she dealt her antagon ist a number of heavy blows across the back and shoulders. Had not inter ference occurred at this juncture, there can be no doubt the encounter would have reached a tragic termination. Mrs. Bonnet was arrested anil taken to the City Prison, and Kate Crowley was deposited in her bed for surgical attendance. The wound shu received was repaired with a few cross stitches and her injuries were found not to be of a serious character. THE STORY OF HER WBONOS. After being lodged in the prison, Mrs. Bonnet became quite calm, and conversed freely regarding the affray and the circumstances by which it was instigated, seeming to experience regret that she had failed iv accom plishing her purpose. About six years ago the woman, Kate Crowley, was employed by Mrs, Bonnet as a ser vant. She remained in the family nearly two years, when evidence came to the knowledge of Mrs. Bonnet which caused her dismissal. This measure, however, did not succeed in breaking up the unhallowed associa tion which had been formed; for not long subsequently Mrs. Bonnet dis covered that her husband was main taining the woman Crowley at a sepa rate establishment in the city. The distressed wife disturbed their rela tions at different times, and caused the removal of their quarters from place to place. A year ago Mrs. Bonnet encountered the destroyer of her peace at a funeral at Lone Mountain and the two engaged in a desperate com bat, in which Kate Crowley was more or less damaged by loss of hair and contusions. Mrs. Bonnet further declares that latterly herself and three cliildieu have been left with barely the races saries of life, while her husband has maintained bis favorite in luxurious quarters and provided for her a life of ease. Before the advent of Kate Crowley, the relations of the family had always been happy and their cir cumstance comfortable. The woman Crowley, on being visited by a re porter regarding her version of the difficulty, was disposed to be reti cent. Officer Tooney, who was arraigned before the Council at its last week's session on a mere quibble, was yester day exonerated from all blame by the Committee ou Police. There is much bad blood existing between members of our palice force, which comes out occasionally in this spiteful way, and greatly injures the unity of action and efficiency of our force. The authori ties should take measures to banish all petty jealousies, which are alike injurious to the individual policemen and the interests of the people. The Vallejo Board of Education on Friday passed resolutions denouncing the recent change of text books by the State Board of Education. A taxidermist has been engaged for some weeks at Judge Crocker's art gallery, Sacramento, placing in posi tion fifteen hundred line specimens of birds.

Soil. The soil Is of a rich sandy loam and free from alkali. There are two or three small pieces of alkali ground on the tract, but they will be poiuted out to purchasers so that they may know what they are buying. The char acter of tlie soil Is more like tbe warm mesa lands of tbe country, than tbe low, damp corn lauds. Semi-Tropical Fruits Will there find a combination of soil,climate and water well adapted to their rapid growth. These lauds are not entirely free from frosts, but the cold is not severe enough to injure the growth of semi-tropical fruit trees, and rarely does any damage, except to tbe tuset tenner vegetation.
