SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1875. Golden Words. The San Bernardino Guardian of the 11th inst. has the following sensi ble editorial: The counties of Southern California —Los Angeles, San Bernardino and San Diego especially—should co-oper ate heartily for the common good. Sectional jealousy la almost as con temptible as domestic jealousy; par ticularly when there is hardly any thing to be jealous about. It was the fashion some time since to set up an imaginary antagonism between Los Angeles and San Diego, just as it has been the fasbion among a few fossils in Los Angeles and San Bernardino to cultivate an imaginary rivalry and a real ill-feeling between the two latter counties. Now, after all, there is no real rivalry, either in the present or prospective, possible between Los An geles and San Diego. Nature made Los Angeles a commercial center —in short, the commercial center of our extensive country —rich in minerals, rich in soil, and teemingly productive in the precious articles of commerce. Geographically, Los Angeles, with her incomparably rich back country, must become a great city. True, she has not nearly so good a harbor as San Diego, but it Is equally true that she has im mense advantages in her magnificent valley, fertile hills,and dependent back country, which San Diego can never hope to possess, had she Scott's Texas and Pacific terminus located next door to the Horton House to-morrow. Los Angeles has no need to dread San Diego; San Diego would exhibit a sad want of sense were she to set up in op position to Los Angeles. Again, San Diego with her immediate resources and prospective railway advantages, has every reason to anticpate a period of progress and prosperity. True, she cannot build up a southern San Fran cisco, a la Aladdin, as she once fondly indulged sanguine hopes of doing; but she can become a flourishing commer cial 0 wn, gradually and surely. The pro.->! c ity of her great Northern neighbor, Los Angeles, will not at all retard the growth of San Diego; oh the contrary, it will tend to increase it. As to San Bernardino, although it is more iutimately.by geographical prox imity and commercial intercourse, connected with Los Angeles; although it must, by the inexorable fiats of ge ography, commerce and railway, con tinue an ally of Los Angeles, yet its rapid growth will in a measure stimu late a similar progress in San Diego. Each of the three counties has its pecu liar recommendation, but let any two of them take on a rapid growth, and the third must be more or less bene fited. Let us not disparage each other then. Let us work, first for our re spective counties, next for Southern for the Southern- Southern California. The Guardian has of late faithfully adhered to this course of policy, and we are glad to see that we are effecting a great deal of good, especially in conjunction with the liberal press of Los Angeles, in bringing about a cordial feeling between Lob Angeles and Snn Bernar dino. Apropos of all this dissertation, we reproduce the following from an admirable article in the San Diego Union of the 6th in9t. They are golden words and deserve reproduction in every paper in the three counties. Says the Union : "The citizens of San Diego have in deed reason to be sensitive to the at tacks which have been leveled against them from the very beginning of the existence of their city by San Fran cisco in particular aud other points in less degree. In plain language, they don't like to be lied about; and we don't know any people who are not sensitive in this regard. But, as to envy or fear in view of the growth of Los Angeles, San Bernardino or other points in Southern California, we can affirm that no such foolish feelings exist. On the contrary, San Diego views with the liveliest gratification the large accessions of population to the adjacent counties and the rapid development of their great resources. We regard the advance of our neigh bors as directly contributing to the prosperity of San Diego, with which those flourishing communities will so soon be connected by railroad. We should rejoice if 50,000 people could be settled around Los Angeles before the end of the present year. The mere producers brought into Southern Cali fornia, the more rapid the growth of the commercial center and distribut ing point of the great region stretch ing from Point Conception away beyond the Colorado to the Eastern boundary of Arizona. San Diego welcomes immigration to any quarter of this wide territory." These words have the right ring to them. There is certaiuly no sectional jealousy there. Build up the whole country, and the towns will regulate their population and business capacity. If Los Angeles advances rapidly, San Diego is benefited; so is San Bernar dino. The people will go to whatever section suits them; county rivalry is despicable. Early Rising Made Easy. "My old friend, Rossiter," says a writer, "fixed his alarum so that at the foreordained moment the bed clothes were draggad from the bed, and Rossiter lay shivering. " I have myself somewhere the drawings and specifications for a pat ent—which I never applied for—which arranges a set of cams and wheel works under tbe bedstead, which at the appointed moment lifts tne pillow end six feet and delivers tbe sleeper on bis feet on the now horizontal foot board. He was not apt to sleep long after that. Rossiter found another contrivance which worked better. The alarum clock struck a match which lighted the lamp which boiled tbe water for Rossiter's shaving. If Rossiter stayed in bed too long, tbe water boiled over upon his razor and clean shirt and prayer-book his moth er gave him, and Coleridge's auto graph, and his open pocket-book and all other precious things he could put in a basin underneath when he went to bed; so he had to get up before that moment came." The Elder Lo Hands in His Checks. Santa Cruz, March 11th.— Justiano Roxas, an Indian, said to have been 123 years old, died last night. The Old Mission records place his baptism in March, 1792, when he was supposed to be fully 40 years old. His funeral will take place to-morrow. The body lies in state at the Catholic school building, where people are paying their last respects to the deceased. Parties in Merced intend to start a new bank. Death of an Army Surgeon. Portland, Oregon, March 9th.—Dr. Wiggin, Assistant Surgeon, U. S. A., at Fort Stevns, was found dead in bis bed at that place on Sunday morning last. It is supposed he died from an over-dose of chloral-hydrate. Body Found in the Bay. San Francisco, March 12th.— The body *f a drowned mini was found in the bay yesterday. It has been recog nized as that of George Gray, a sea man on board H. B. M.'s ibipTenedos, recently in the harbor. Deceased de serted the ship and in swimming ashore was drowned. John Mitchel Twice Elected. Cork, March 11th.—The Parlia mentary election passed oft'quietly to day. About one-third of the constit uency, including the Roman Catholic clergy and leading tradesmen, took no part in it. The counting is not com pleted, but is estimated that John Mitchel has a majority of one thous and. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. <<<»>.l> RKPOKT. San Francisco, March 12.
