There is talk of building a large hotel at Anaheim. The Orizaba is due at Wilmington next Monday. The Kalorama, bringing freight,will arrive at Wilmington to-morrow. Another "New England breakfast" at the Packman House Sunday morn ing. A mule tried his speed and bottom in a runaway down Main street yes day. No damage. Downey shipped yesterday 78 sacks meal, 80 sacks cracked corn and 441 sacks corn. Don't forget the ball to be given on the evening of the 17th—St. Patrick's Day. It will be the affair of the sea son. J. M. Baldwin has a choice lot GOx 165 feet, on the line of the Spring and Sixth Street Railway, which $800 will buy. It is reported that Col. Peel is doing good work in canvassing for the Los Angeles and Independence Railroad in and around Anaheim. The San Diego l T nion complains of irregularity in reviving the Los An geles exchanges. We must confess to a similar annoyance on our part, and commend the subject to the consider ation of the proper authorities. County Superintendent Peck informs us that the amount of the State school moneys apportioned to this county is $49,440 56; and that $248 55 will be apportioned to each of the ninety cen sus teachers. The pro rata to each child will be $3 90. Vasquez has been interviewed again. He is cheerful in conversation. He says he does not hope for executive clemency. He spoke'of the numberof young ladies who had visited him, and said, laughingly, that if they had been on his jury he would have been ac quitted. The iron for the Main Street and Agricultural Park Railroad Company has arrived at Wilmington, and the vessel having the ties on board is now due. As soon as the material can be foi warded from Wilmington the work of grading and laying the rails will be inaugurated. We had a call yelterday trom Mr. D. Ghirardelli, one of the oldest es tablished and foremost merchants of San Francisco. Mr. G. has an exten sive chocolate, charters coffee and spice manufactory which dates its es tablishment back to 1852. An adver tisement of the house appears in an other column. A horse attached to a buggy stand ing on Spring street yesterday morn ing, became frightened at something and made an attempt to get up a run away. He was caught before going far, but in the meantime bad succeeded in kicking the dashboard from the buggy. The rig was the property of Mr. Morsch. Miss Jennie Leys' last lectures will be given at Merced Theatre Sunday afternoon and evening at 2 and 7:30 o'clock. Subject for afternoon, "The True Future of Spiritualism." Subject for evening, "Pre-natal Rights of Children." A collection will be taken at the close of each lecture for Miss Leys' benefit. We call the attention of our readers to the advertisement of T. W. Stack pole, dealer in watches and jewelry, in to-day's paper. Mr. Stackpole comes to us highly recommended as one thoroughly skilled in his business, and as he is to make a permanent bone in this city we bespeak for him a liberal patronage. The Belmont, Nevada, Courier says: "The Los Angeles papers have an eye on the trade from this section of the country. They propose to give us railroad facilities to tide water,through that city, before a great length of time elapses. On the completion of the Independence road, either the same or another company will doubtless con tinue on towards Utah. The New Italy says: It turns out that the man who wrote that he could bring a colony of twenty persons to California has a family of eighteen children, all living at home. All right, come along. Our schools are equal to any State in the Union, and no portion of Uncle Samuel's do main offers better facilities for rearing large families. Attention is directed to the adver tisement of Dr. Hobbs' Private Health Establishment, which appears this morning. The Doctor proposes to supplement our advantages of climate for invalids with comforts and atten tion of a home and the use of the magnetic sun-bath. The establish ment is on Alameda street; a short distance below the depot. Our Fruits—Can we Afford to Eat Them ? Complaints aro frequently made by visitors to Los Angeles that they are required to pay exorbitant prices for fruits and other productions of our section, when purchasing them in small quantities on the street. There is much justice in the protests thus entered. If one wishes a half-dozen oranges, he must pay as much for them to the keeper of a fruit stand here, as he could buy them for in San Francisco or New York. And yet or anges are raised here and shipped by the hundreds of thousands. The vendor buys them at 25 cents per dozen and sells them at 75 cents,- or he pays 15 cents for a poorer quality and sells at 50 cents. Thus he makes some two or three hundred per cent, profit — a very fair margin on a class of fruits which can not be considered perishable. The same exhorbitant prices cover all our semi-tropical fruits and nuts. Why does this state of affairs exist? Is it because a number of grasping vendors have a corner on the market and skilfully maintain it? Such must be the case. Our groceries and pro visions, our furniture, our hardware— everything which is imported is sold at retail at little above the ruling prices of San Francisco or the East. A visitor who steps out upon the street and buys a few oranges on which he pays two or three hundred per cent, profit, concludes that Los Angeles is a place of magnificent charges. He packs up his trunk, perhaps, ami moves on. We need twenty-five or more live Yankee boys to establish fruit stands on every alternate corner along our main streets and "bear" the market. Let us have fruits sold from door to door in carts or peddled in baskets by enterprising boys and girls. Then we can eat the productions of our own section at a reasonable price. We can have the best also, iustead of the refuse now given us, culled from shipments to our neighbors who are fortunate enough to live where semi tropical fruits do not grow. His Room Better than His Company. Some time since a correspondent of the New York Herald visited Santa Barbara and gave a description of our fair up-country neighbor which was far from complimentary. The letter, which occupied something over*two colums in the Herald, we read care fully, and we think without prejudice. It was, to say the least, very unjust in almost every proposition. It depreci ated every advantage and magnified every disadvantage which the country might possess. It was ono of those mean, underhanded expressions of spleen which differed as much from a fair, generous criticism as the writer differs from a gentleman. This inli vidua! Is now in Son Drego and one of the papers at that place gives blm a warm reception after this fashion: What will become of us now ? A would-be newspaper aspirant has landed in our midst, claiming to be an imp of the New York Herald. Will the boss of that powerful metropolitan sheet call his "Tiga" away ? The fact that he has, been imported into our midst by dint of begging free passes from transportation companies aifd signing his name on hotel registers as "special, etc.," is sufficient to stamp him as a relic of by-gone times in the judgment of all intelligent men. Newspaper men who travel in this shape are "dead beats" from A to Z, and are not countenanced by the craft. God be praised when we shall hear no more of them! In course of time we shall doubtless see another of these splenetic commu nications in the New York Herald, which will make San Diego gnash her teeth with rage. And then this Mr. Wormwood will probably pack up his valise put the bricks back into his truuk and start for Los Angeles. He will no doubt lavish a full measure of venom upon our city, doubly distilled, as death loves a shining mark, and dead beats are equally capricious. At all times we invite an expression of truth regarding Los Angeles. We will kindly receive criticism and even endure misrepresentation; but should the man throw himself upon our hos pitality and wilfully belie us, we will not answer for the Christian forbear ance which he may rooolv©. Makinp one's exit from a city on the ragged edge of a three-cornered rail to the tune of the "Rogue's March," would hardly be pleasant under the most favorable circumstances. We charge nothing for this suggestion to our San Diego neighbors and promise nothing to this Mr. Wormwood should he con clude to pay us a visit. A portion of the thirty-live acres adjoining the residence of Judge King, owned by the Episcopal Church, is to be subdivided and sold in lots. The proceeds will be applied to making needed improvements about the church building on Temple street. Some ten acres of the tract will be reserved, upon which to erect a denominational school building. This will place in the mar ket some of the choicest building lots to be found in the city. Mr. Temple's crack team of farm horses hitched to a buggy stood in front of the Palace Saloon yesterday after noon, and were objects of general interest. The two stallions are four and five years old respectively, aud their aggregate weight It2,96opounds. The animals appeared in good flesh although they were not so heavy, the exhibition of bono and sinew, howev er, was something astonishing, and altogether, we have never seen better specimens of heavy draft horses. ■!> m • 1 Sacramento News.

[From the Danville, Illinois, Commercial.] IiOK AnoeljKS, Cal, Jau. 30, '75. Dear Old Commercial: An ever welcome visitor as you are to me, and have been since I left Danville, yet I have never written you a line since my arrival in California. I have thought many times of doing so, but business and other correspondence seemed always to demand my time, besides I have seen an occasional let ter from this place to you, written by the able pen of Judge Clapp, andYnore recently from 8. P. Smith, botli form erly of Danville. Having traveled through the Golden State with a view of settling permanently, I have been a careful observer throughout; but found no place which suited me in every respect, as did this place. The mildness of the climate, and the pro ductiveness of the soil, it seeming to be adapted to raising every kind of produce, both Northern and semi tropical; besides the rapid growth of the city, the increase of railroad facili ties, and the vast tide of emigration, all so plainly speaking the future des tiny of the place. It also being the metropolis of Southern California, what more need one ask to iusure a good business? I have lived here for one year and a half, and the improvements of the city are really wonderful. There are many facts, which would, no doubt, interest many of your readers, pertaining U> this quaint city "The Queen of the Angels," founded nearly one hundred years ago, and presents to this day, to a stranger, the charm of antiquity with its crooked streets and queer adobe buildings, scattered here and there. Theaa, however, do not lessen the attractions. The streets arc being graded, and the sidewalks are nearly made. Also, we boast of OUf two and three story buildings which we have without number. The city itself occupies an area of about six miles, and embraces, within its limits, a grand and beautifal view of hill and plain. From my window I look upon the hills clothed in green, and beyond are .the Sierra Madre mountains, with their lofty snow capped peaks. . What a contrast! •Were is not that it would seem too much like fairy lands. I would say we gathered flowers with one ha nil, and, at the same time, snowballs with the other. I may say distinctly that we have no Winter here. When we speak of wandering through orange groves, bending beneath their yellow burden; or inhaling their balmy, de licious atmosphere; of the beautiful eucalyptus and pepper tree with the lemon and pomegranite—in fact, one vast tropical orchard, while the gar dens, teeming with every variety of the flowery kingdom, lills the air with their incomparable odors; does it sound like Winter - .' of the dreary, leafless days that you are enjoying, or enduring, at this time. Ah! I have spent too many days in your icy clime to be ignorant of what Winter means, and can but soliloquize, ugh! I don't want to be there. It is cold enough here to make a fire pleasant and a light overcoat comfortable, and we have as glorious an atmosphere, as much enjoyment, as many pleasant sights ns though it were June. Some of our Eastern friends, I believe, erro neously imagine that our Winters are made up of rainy days; but if they will stop and think that we do not see a drop of rain from March until December, they will readily see that ram would lit- bailed with grout de light. However, 1 will correct that error by saying that our Winters are far from being rainy ones. It rains for a few days, then "the sun shines its warmest and brightest, and the mud dries up as if by magic—the soil being very sandy, we have but little mud. It is then, if ever, that the ladies all seem to be of one mind, that is to get the full benefit of clean streets, for it must be remembered that where no rain descends for nine months, there must consequently be some dust. Some seem bent on shopping, others, regaled in all the fashions of the day, are making calls, while the greater number, with hosts of children, have gathered on the hill which looks— from a distance—as if it were sudden ly changed into a grand park; every thing is glorious and full of life after a rain. The rains this year are later than usual, also heavier, causing in some parts fearful damages. Marys ville, in the Northern part of the State, has suffered heavy loss, owing to defects in the levee. Large contri butions are being sent every day, which will partly alleviats the suffer ings of the poor. 1 learn through votir columns that several of the Dan ville boys contemplate a tour through California, this Winter. That is right; come in the Winter and save yourselves from all the cold blasts that you can. Do not return without seeing Beini-tropieal California. No one could see it and breathe its in vigorating air without being charmed —especially in Winter. In summer the heat is tempered by a cool sea breeze, and the nights are invariably cool—just cool enough to require a blanket ou the bed—insuring perfect rest and sweet slumber to all. Our churches and schools are well worthy of mention, for of these, a stranger who contemplates settling here, with a large family, will first inquire. The Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregf tionalist aud Episcopalians, occupy neat and commodious build ings, while the Baptist, which is more recently organized, occupies for the present the Good Templars' Hall. The Southern Methodist congregation will soon erect a place of worship, which is to cost $50,000. The Hegrew Syna gogue is one of the showiest buildings iv the city. The Public High School, under the superintendence of Wm. T. Lucky, is, in every respect, what one would expect to find in much larger cities; it being fitted with all the mod em appliances, and the Superintend ent being a gentleman of over thirty years experience in teaching.is enough assurance that it can receive the most advanced students. Los Angeles also boasts of a public library containing over 1,»IH) volumes, aud is one of the chief attractions to tourists; a chess room is connected with it which is also used as a smoking and conversa tion room. I will not "spin my yarn" to a more tiresome length, which I might do by speaking of our sea-side resorts etc. Come all ye Danvilleites and see for yourselves. E. E. F. Ex-Congressmen Clamoring for Offices. Washington, March 10th,—Large numbers of Senators and ex-members of the House culled on the President to-day. Several ex-members wanted the President to provide them with offices, but they received little or no encouragement.
