Phofiilx-ltke Raised from their Aabea —Again lv Running Order. It will be remembered that on the night of July 10th, 1874, the people of Los Angeles were aroused by an alarm of fire and turned out to find the Aliso Mills enveloped in flames and sood converted into a mass of ruins. The loss to the owners and operators at the time was estimated to be about $20,000 and was but slightly covered by in surance; but the injury entailed upon the business interests of the commu nity in the destination of the princi pal flouring mill of the county swelled the actual loss to a much larger figure. Fortunately the walls of the building, of substantial brick, withstood the fury of the flames and were not even cracked by the intense heat and the water thrown upon them. During the past two months, workmen have been busily engaged refurnishing the gutted walls with roofs, floors and machinery, and the Aliso Mills stand to-day as staunch as ever. The refit ting was done under tbe supervision of Mr. Thos. W. Irwin, and cost about $8,000. New machinery throughout of the most improved style was sup plied, and the whole placed in cap-a pie order, with bins, elevators, bolting machines, separators, etc., only to be appreciated by a practical miller. The power for operating the mill is fur nished by the main zanja, which carries about 400 inches of water. A Lafelle water wheel is used, operating two run of stones and the other neces sary machinery. Mr. G. R. Parker, a man of large experience in the busi ness, is the miller in charge. Although the mills were started up some two weeks since, it cannot be said that they were in full operation until the beginning of this week. Thus far only feed has been ground of mixed barley and corn, but in a few days tbe mills will commence running on corn almost exclusively, making an article of meal fully up to the old standard. To Messrs. O. W. Childs, J. G. Dow ney and I. W. Hellman, the proprie tors of the mill property, belongs the honor of rescuing our city from a complete state of dependence upon other sections for the immense quan tities of flour and feed consumed in Los Augeles. We trust that the Aliso Mills will stand untouched by fire or accident in the future, and prove a nucleus around which other similar enterprises will congregate to make our city one of the chief manufactur ing points of California. The Wheeler Troupe. The following notice of this troupe, which will appear at Merced Theatre on Saturday and Monday evenings, we clip from the San Jose Mercury: "Ben Wheeler's Comedy troupe gave their last appearance for the present at the Opera House last night to another highly pleased audience. We say, and in no sense of fulsome flattery, that this is one of the very best troupes of the kind that ever visited San Jose. As a delineator of plantation eccen tricities we don't believe Petri has his equal in America. Wheeler's Irish characters, also, are genuine touches of true genius. Although a sort of variety performance, it is entirely chaste and meritorious, and just the kind to please the average audience. We hope they will find it in their way to visit us again." ST. PATRICK'S DAY. How it was Celebrated by our Irish C'ltlrcus-Tbe Parade — Ceremonies at tbe Hall—Address by Mr. Stephen n. White -ttrand Ball at Night ■• Topo' the Herulu' to Ye"—And a Uraurt Time Uenerally. The 17th of March ever wakes in the Irish breast feelings of patriotism; feelings which are intensified by the love of a country oppressed and a liberty denied in their own native land. Besides the great question of Ireland's rights and wrongs which the day brings vividly to mind, there is a historical charm awakened, which furnishes additional zest to the occa sion. In the commemoration of this day, which has been handed down from generation to generation from the remote ages, there is combined a religious festival and a national holi day. In America, the love of their native land burns not less brightly in the hearts of true Irishmen, nor loses aught by the allegiance which they pay to their adopted country. In Los Angeles, the occasion was celebrated most appropriately yesterday. THE PARADE. In accordance with the published programme, the procession formed on Arcadia street shortly after noon and moved about Ip. m. The procession was headed by Desmond's brass band, re-enforced by a number of pieces from other bauds of the city. About 300 men formed the procession, and with their regalia, badges and standards, made a fine display. At the head of the column the American and Irish flags were carried, and midway in line an elegant banner of the national color, ornamented with appropriate emblems and the motto in gold, "God Save Ireland." The members of St. Patrick's Benevolent Society came first, wearing their beautiful regalia— a broad green sash across the left shoulder. The members of the Irish- American Literary and Social Club followed, each having a neat and elegant badge, prepared expressly for. the occasion. A full description of the badge was given in our issue of yes terday, and does not need repetition. The rear of the line was brought up by carriages conveying the orator and president of the day, the reverend Fathers of the Catholic Church and other prominent citizens. Mr. Henry King officiated as Marshal of the Day with Messrs.Thos.Desmondand James Gorman us aids. The line of march was taken up Main street to the Plaza, countermarch on Main street, down Main to Sixth street, along Sixth to Spring street, and up Spring to Turn-Verein Hall. AT THE HALL A large concourse of people was al ready gathered on the arrival of the procession. About half past 2 o'clock the exercises were com menced by the band playing "St. Pat rick's Day." Mr. Neagle, the presi dent of ceremonies, then arose and de livered a very neat little speech, wel coming the auditors and referring briefly to the occasion which they were assembled to commemorate. This was followed by a song, "Erin, My Country," rendered exquisitely by Mrs. McDonald, wjien the orator, Mr. Stephen M. White, was introduced and delivered THE ADDRESS. The speaker premised by saying that he did not expect to present anything novel for the consideration of his aud itors, but merely to revive old memo ries of facts which some may have forgotten, and which would encourage them to nobler exertion in the future. In the words of Montague he had gathered a posy of other men's flow ers, the threads which binds them to gether only being his own. He re ferred to the principles of government, the advance of civilization, and the rights of nations, and applied his de ductions to the condition of Ireland, showing that she was not only op pressed during those ages when con quest was held to be a natural right, but that, in later times the same dark and bloody policy has been pursued, the same sophistries adduced in justi fication of her oppressors. He ques tioned the right of sovereigns to en thral the body of man whose soul was created free and immortal by God. Referring to the natural love of coun try, the speaker said: " He who could forget the land of his birth, the home of his dearest friends, would be truly heartless, but it must be admitted by all that Irishmen are free from this charge." It muy be that the hearth-stone>s cold— Perchance the roof-tree bare, And that the loving ones of old No longer gather there; Yet, yet his fancy ever strays Across the ocean's foam, To that fair scene ol otherdays, The old fireside of home. Did space permit we would like to follow the orator through his address, which was crowded with interest from beginning to end, but with this brief mention we must reluctantly dismiss the subject. Mr. White was frequent ly applauded in the course of his re marks, and it was plain to be seen that be elicited the highest interest in his auditors. After the conclusion of the address, the band struck up " THE WEARING OF THE GREEN," All air ever held greeu in the memory of Irishmen. Mrs. McDonald then sang "The Harp that once thro'Tara's Halls," the song being finely received. After this came the "Star Spangled Banner," by the band, and tne exer cises were closed by a song, "God Save Ireland," rendered by Mrs. Mc- Donald, Miss Maggie Bradley and Miss Sacriste. The ringing through out was charming, and too much credit cannot be awarded Mrs. McDon ald and the other participants for the parts which they sustained. After the conclusion of the exercises the pro cession reformed and marchea to Steams' Hall, where the celebrators dispersed. . IN THE EVENING, The ball at Turn-Verein Hall came fully up to our anticipations. The Committee of Arrangements were Messrs. Thomas Desmond, Matthew Dullaban, A. J. Hamilton, Thomas Mead, D. W. Fitzpatrick, Daniel Des mond, Chas. Hagan, James Gorman, I P. H. Hannon and Michael Hopkins, They did ample credit to themselves in arranging one of the most delight ful affairs of the kind ever held in Los Angeles. There was a large attend ance and no lack of beauty, elegance and gaiety. The dancers amused themseives as usual until an advanced hour of the morning. The proceeds of the affair, which must have netted a handsome sum, were donated to the wives and families of Irish patriots in English dungeons. Thus ended the celebration of St. Patrick's Day, and we venture the assertion that many a city of greater proportions than Los Angeles did not better honor the occasion. Mr. Bancroft, of the firm of Bancroft & Thayer, has returned to the city from San Francisco, where he has been engaged for the past month in having a map of Los Angeles engraved and printed. The map is from authen tic and reliable surveys, and is the only official one published. Only a limited number were secured, and these will be sold at the mere cost—s4 each. Parties wishing them should call early at the office of Bancroft & Thayer. EDUCATIONAL COLUMN. [Edited by the Teachers of the Public Schools of Los Angeles county.] Duty of Teachers. Teachers should frequently and care fully read the following requirement of the California School Law. There is no part of their responsible work that calls for the exercise of more vig ilance and prudence. Their success in training up virtuous men and women, good American citizens, de pends more upon conscientious com pliance with this, than with any other portion of the law. "It shall be the duty of all teachers to endeavor to impress on the minds of the pupils the principles of morality, truth, justice and patriotism; to teach them to avoid idleness, profanity and falsehood, and to instruct them in the principles of free government, and to train them up to a truecomprehension of the rights, duties and dignity of American citizenship." The Noblest Charity in America. Girard College, in Philadelphia, is now supporting and educating five hundred and fifty orphans. For more than thirty years its beautiful marble halls have been filled to their utmost capacity. Here thousands of boys have been trained up in the paths of virtue, who, perhaps, would have be come pests of society if its doors had not been opened to them. Every child, when admitted into the College, is indentured to the Board of Mana gers. He is instructed by teachers who rank with the highest in their profession. Boys who exhibit remark able talents, after completing the thorough and practical course of study in the College, are sent to other Col leges to acquire a more extensive edu cation; while the greater number are bound out to farmers, mechanics and tradesmen to acquire a knowledge of business that will make them useful and independent citizens. The income of the College for 1874 was $600,000, while the expenses were $400,000. The income will soon be so large that it will be difficult to find objects of charity sufficient to exhaust it. 520 acres of land belonging to the estate will soon be covered with houses, the lease of which will make Girard College the most magnificently endowed Institution in the world. In comparison with such a gift, whether we consider its immense value or the noble work it is accomplishing for humanity, the donation of James L,ick sinks into insignificance. Teachers' Examinations. In Santa Clara county there were 50 applicants for certificates, 41 ladies and nine gentlemen. Only seven certifi cates were granted; one first grade, three second grade, and three third grade. Of the examination in Placer county, the Herald speaks as follows: At the teachers' examination, held last week, there were five applicants for certificates. All received the de sired document, but none higher than third grade. Tne questions, it is said, were unusually hard. We hear much complaining about the rigid restric tions «f the State Board in reference to examinations. Under recent rules, applicants are not only required to answer a certain percent, of questions, but must do it in a certain time. This is an arbitrary humbug. Some think the State Board of Education are at tempting to crowd out of the profession all but Normal graduates. They, as a class, ought to be superior teachers; but if not the rule, certainly it is the exception, that others are as good. Just what the Los Angeles Teachers Do. The New York Educational Journal says: "If the teachers in largerschools would take different education jour nals and exchange, it would be well." We adopted this plan last year, with results so satisfactory that it is con tinued for the year 1875; and in addi tion to the teachers each member of the Board of Education takes a jour nal. Thus twenty-five of the best educational papers in the United States are deposited monthly in the Superin tendent's office, whence they can be drawn by teachers and advanced pu pils. We heartily endorse the recom mendation of the New York Journal. German School. The German school in this city is in a prosperous condition. The building now occupied being too small to ac commodate the classes, and being un pleasantly located, the Trustees nave determined to build a more commo dious house, in a more eligible situa tion. The house they propose to build will be an ornament to the city. Suc cess to this, and to all schools. A Short Course of Instruction. An Irish girl once excused her ig norauce by saying: "I haven't much larnin'. I never went to school but one day, and that was in the evenin', and we hadn't no candles, and the master didn't come." Dr. Oilman, President of the Uni versity of California, has presented his resignatien to the Board of Regents. It is understood that he will be elected President of a new University, in the city of Baltimore, which has en dowment so ample that it will at once take rank with our oldest colleges. The Regents will find it difficult to procure a man who can fill the place vacated by Dr. Gilman. It is the most respon sible position in the State. Scores of men suited for other positions can be found where there is not one suited to the Presidency of our great Occidental University. A thousand interests de pend in some degree upon the choice made by the Regents. In the public schools of the city of New York there are 3,039 teachers, of whom all but two hundred are ladies. The Stockholders' Meeting. In compliance with the by-laws, the holders of a majority of the stock in the Herald Printing and Publishing Company assembled at the Herald office yesterday, ami in accordance with a legally published notice, pro ceeded to elect a Bourd of Directors for the ensuing year, commencing on the 11th instant. The meeting was called to order by Geo. C. Gibbs, President of the old Board. It being found that a majority of ihe stock was represented by those pfi*etit, a ballot was taken, H. S. Orm nnd I. W. Lord acting as tellers, with tlie following result: Directors, H. M. John ston, L. J. Rose, J. M. Bas sett, E. E. Hewitt, J. R. Mc- Connell, H. J. Crow and Gabriel Al len. After the election of the new Board, the old Board adjourned sine die. At 2 p. M. the new Board met and proceeded to organize by the election of H. M. Johnston President and J. M. Bassett Secretary. J. M. Bassett was elected editor-in-chief and general business manager of the paper for the term of one year. An assessment of five per cent, on tne capital stock was levied and the proper notice ordered given by publi cation in the Herald. Change in Postal Law.
