Mr. Frank Gross, of the San Fran cisco Post, who has been with us sev eral days, leaves to-day for San Diego. Our fire department turned out last night, for a little practice. They make a very creditable display. Passengers for San Francisco and principal way-ports per Senator will leave the depot at 3:45 p.m.; for San Diego, per Ventura, at same time. In the County Court yesterday David Dominquez, convicted of house-break ing, was sentenced to three years' im prisonment in San LJuentin.

Bisha» Kip wili visit Los Angeles Sunday, April 18th, for the purpose of holding a confirmation in tne Episco pal Church of this city. Those photographs taken at the Cottage Gallery, First street, are as good as the best and cheaper than the cheapest. The St. Charles Restaurant Sunday dinners are doing a great deal in the way of making fat men, embompoint women and chubby children. We are pleased to note that Mr. Geo. B. Davis, proprietor of the Alden Fruit Works, is able to ride out again after his long and serious illness. The rush to Sam Prager's to buy those rich and fashionoble dry goods is the sensation of the week. Seven teen clerks are kept busy all the time. Fisher & Thatcher have seven men and a seven-horse power engine stead ily at work manufacturing massive gold chains, heavy gold rings and beautiful pins. The funeral of A. A. Campbetf will take place this forenoon, under the auspices of the Odd Fellows. Mem bers of the Order are requested to meet at the Hall at 10 o'clock litis morning.

Wolfenstein, Chas. Parke, B. F. Goode, and S. Jones, one each. We call attention to the advertise ment in another column of the ball to be given by St. Patrick's Benevolent Society on Easter Monday night, March 29th. Our Irish citizens have shown what they can do towards get ting up a first-class ball, as all can testify who attended the one in Turner Hall on St. Patrick's night. No pains or expense will be spared to make it a success. Mr. Desmond's full band has been engaged to furnish the music. Notwithstanding the recent ordi nance passed by the City Council or dering saloon-keepers to close their places of business at 12 A. m., several of them chose to keep open for the purpose of testing the legality of the ordinance. Yesterday morning Mar shal Carillo directed his police to ar rest the parties that had violated the ordinance. Messrs. Wolf & Burns, Jos. Breson, Mr. Williams, and sev eral others, were accordingly ordered to appear before Mayor Beaudry. The counsel for defense made the point that the ordinance had not been pub lished in the La Cronica. as the law required. They were all discharged. The Wheeler Comedy Troupe gave their first appearance at Merced Thea tre last evening to a large and appre ciative audience. The perform ers were each encored several times. Miss De Courcy's singing and acting was very good. Mr. Wheeler in his Irish specialties was a perfect success and drew shouts of laughter from the audience. Master Bennie and Mr. Petrie, the former as change artist and character actor and the latter in his negro delinea tions, acquitted themselves very cred itably. Taken of a whole, the per formance was a success, and reflects credit upon the management. It will be repeated on Monday evening. Religious Services To-Day.

Letter', of Inquiry from the Kant— How our Frleuds across tbe Conti nent Have tbe » allfomla rever," anil Have it Bail Thouaunihi will Emigrate to the Golden Stute as Nwui aw they can Than Ont The Wcather-vnue of I ininlg ration that Slums how the Wind Blow*. It is only within the past year that Southern California has been adver tised abroad and the people of the United States East of the Rocky Mountains awakened to the knowl edge that such a place is in existence. Hitherto our section has been consid ered an unknown region, or at best a sandy stretch of desert, producing only cactus and wild undergrowth, inhabited by swarthy Mexicans and scorched by a Tartarian sun. The energy more recently infused into the hitherto easy-going city of Los Ange les, has caused our natural advantages to be made known far and wide. Other cities of the Southern coast have sent out their bulletins with equal enter prise to the world, and the result is that Southern California, and in fact the whole State is now the main ob jective point in the Union for immi gration. As a proof of this proposi tion which we have advanced, we are weekly in receipt of scores of letters, from every part of the United States, making inquiries concerning our city and county and expressing a general desire to emigrate to our section. A few of these letters, received during the present week, we present to show the prevailing spirit among the in quirers. Mr. W. H. Cock, President of the First National Bank, Clinton, Mo., writes: Clinton, Mo., March 10,1875. Editor Hkuald: Enclosed I hanu you currency, for which please send me two Her ald pamphlets. I nave, through the kind ness ol Mr. T. D. Hancock of your county, been a reader of the Hkuald the two last years; am well pleased with it. There are quite a number of persons here very anxious to emigrate to your county, all having taken the fever from reading the Hkuald, as the papers I receive pass through the hands and are read by quite a number here. Yours, etc., W. H. Cock. From another State come the follow ing: Girard, 111., Feb. 8,1875. Editor of the Herald, Los Angeles, Cal.: Dkaii Mir: Enclosed Is 15 cents, foi which please send me the Herald pamphlet; also please write me and give me the prices and mil description of the land ln the "Gospel Swamp" There are quite a number of fami lies here that are going to move to your coun ty this yer,r, and lam among them. * * * Yours truly, W. S. GOBBLK, Vice-Pres'tU. S. Pruning Shear Co. From the Buckeye State this comes on a postal card: Bucyrus, March 12,1875. Dear Sir: Will you be kind enough to send me sample copies of your paper? I want some paper from Southern California from Which I can learn something of youi soli, cli mate' prices of land, etc., etc. We have had tK) days ofextra Winter weather—the mercury as low as 28" below z»»ro. All have the Cali fornia fever. Respectfully, B. Sears. And still another: Sandoval, Marion Co., 111., March 3, '75. Los Angeles I'ublLiliiiig Co.: Dear Sirs: Find enclosed 15c., for which please send me a copy ol the new edition of the Herald pamphlet. I am seeking a milder climate than we have here. My busi ness is ft nit culture and apiculture, and I wish t» obtain all the Information I can respecting those branches of business in your county; also about the climate, soil, timber, produc tions of the soil ln general, markets, state of society, etc. Respectfully, J. H. Wilson. Here is another, short and sweet: Detroit, Mich., March 10, '75. Editor Los Angeles Herald: Dear Sir: We are forming a colony for Caliiornia. Will you please send a copy of your paper and any Information you may think valuable. Yours. J. D. McLaulin. Livingston, Term., Feb. 24,1875. Editor Herald, Los Angeles: Dear Sir: I herewith enclose you amount of subscription for Weekly Herald six months. I have received two numbers, and am well pleased with your paper. I will visit you place this Fall, if nothing prevents. Yours respectfully, J. W. Wrigiit. Litchfield, 111., March 4,1875. Editor Ims Angeles Herald: Dear Sir: Please send me a copy of the Weekly Herald, so I can see terms, etc., as I wish to subscribe for it. I intend removing to your city next Spring. David Clarke. Osage City, Kansas, ) March 17th, 1875. J Editor Herald: I have received quite a number of letters and papers from Los Ange les, and am highly pleased with the reports in regard to your advancement in every way. Some of your pictures look large, but I hope they are true, for when the public mind has been excited beyond reality, like the pendu lum. It will swing back to the other extreme. I have read the Herald, Express, Star and Truman's Book, with many other documents which speak in glowing terms of Seml-Tropl cal California. Truman's book is well written —yes, I may say too well written; not that he does not tell facts, but that their clothing are too rich, and many who read them lose sight of the time and toil which is making Los Angeles county and her surroundings the garden spot of the world. Yes; I should like to pluck the golden orange from Its native bough, and ln the shade of the lime and lem on lie, where I could watch the white-winged ships floating to and fro on the " shimmering sea;" then look up to the snowy peaks and see the garland of the North glittering ln the sunlight. Then could I say, on my right hand sleeps Eden in her emerald garb and on my left the ragged peaks of the world beyond. Indeed, this looks very much like reproving the Major, so I will turn Pegassus loose and take the world as It Is, for there Is no poetry in a hoe-handle or a jack-plane. There are many who would leave Kansas at this time, were It not for the want of means. Two years loss ot crops has emptied our cash-box and we are now praying that kind heaven will smile propitious on our coming Spring; but I may be gone from beneath these smiles for westward I see the star of Bethlehem hanging oTSr the golden shore, where energy and life bring the harvest whether Heaven smiles in showers or not. Heaven will par don me lor not believing that "He feeds the young ravens when th«y cry," for mine have chirped from morn till night and then went to bed without seeing any manna dropping down from above. I fully expect to be in Los Angeles county somewhere as soon as I can arrange business here and get off. There are quite a number to leave here for California of my acquaintance, whom I have recommended to go to your county should I not be able to start at the same time; and believing that your county has more natural resources for the farmer than any other part of California, 1 shall rec ommend Los Angeles as the hub. With many regards for the kindness of D. Freeman, W. H. J. Brooks. Gen. Shields, and Mr. Olden of Anaheim, and the prosperity ot the Herald, I am very respectfully yours, J. W. Jackson. A little fellow eight years old, the son of Charles Cusbing of Batavia, while playing in a barn on Saturday, fell upon a mower and received such injuries as to cause almost in stant death. »»» Miss Benicia Frisbie, daughter of General Frisbie, met with a serious accident on Sunday afternoon, while riding near Vallejo, by being thrown from her horse. About 200 persons applied to the various Protestant churches in Sacra mento on Sunday for admission to memberships. These are the results of the revival. THE FARMER FEEDETH ALL. BY CHAS. G. LKLAND. My lord rides through his palace gate, My lady sweeps along in state; The sage thinks long on many a thing, And the maiden muses od marrying; The minstrel harpeth merrily, The sailor plows the foumlng sea; The huntsman kills the good red deer. And the soldier wars without c'en fear; But fall to each whate'er befall, The farmer, he must feed them all. Smith hammereth cherry red tbe sword; Priest preacheth pure the Holy Word; Dams Alice worketh 'broidery well. Clerk Richard tales of love can tell; The tap wife sells her foaming beer, Ean Fisher flslielh iv the mere, And courtiers ruffle, strut and shine, While pages bring the Gascon wive; But fall to each whute'er befall, The farmer, he must feed them all. Man builds his castles fair and high Wherever river runneth by, Great cities rise in every land; Great churches show the builder's band; Great arches, monuments and towers, Fair palaces and pleasing bowers; Great work Is done, be It nere or there, And well man worketh everywhere; Hut work or rest, whate'er befall, The farmer, he must feed them all. Gold Mountain. A large specimen of gold-bearing quartz is on exhibition in the reading room of the Pico House, from the fa mous Gold Mountain mine, in Bear valley, San Bernardino county, a con trolling interest in which is owned by £. J. Baldwin, the San Francisco mining millionaire. The specimen shows plenty of free gold, and al though it is a selected chunk, the de velopeinents at the mine have shown that there is plenty more of the same sort. The company's new mill of forty stamps has been running for about ten days, and the first clean-up will be made on Monday next. The mine is literally a mountain of quartz, from which the mineral-bearing rock is quarried and run through the mill, without the necessity of assorting. Experiments ou a limited scale have shown an average yield of $29 per ton, but if the rock will pay but $10 per ton, the enormous quantity in sight, the ease with which it is ex tracted and the low cost of milling and mining which will not exceed $3 50 per ton all told, will make it one of the most valuable pieces of mining property int he world and a formida ble rival of the Virginia City bo nanza. Mr. Baldwin says that there are plenty more mines of the same sort in the distriot. Real Estate Transactions.
