The Lodge, Green Meadows, Los Angeles, GOLD REPORT San FKANonoo, April 8. Qnld.lnM Greenbacks—Buying,B7; selling.Bß. LOCAL BREVITIES. The saloon-keepers' case will be de cided by Mayor Beaudry to-day. Only one solitary drunk in tbe May or's Court yesterday. The Cot)Btantine arrived at Wil mington yesterday. Fourteen saloons have been closed under the provisions of the $2,000 bond ordinance. Mr. I: W. Hellman left by the Ori zaba yesterday for a nine mouths' vis it to his Fatherland. You could n't go anywhere yesterday but you found somebody speiting something. Mr. Cbas. Knowlton, late proprietor of the Pico House, left for Ban Fran cisco yesterday. Mr. M. C. Baker has a number of the new lock-stitch band sewing ma chines, which he will sell st a sacrifice —$26 apiece. Worse and worse! Beside the spell ing mania in Ban Diego, they have got puns. Can it be that we are com ing to this? We learn that Mr. Weeks, formerly chisf clerk of the Pico House, will take charge of the hotel at White Sulphur Springs, Napa county, during the Summer. Tbe wsrk of demolishing some old adobe buildings on Los Angeles street, between Commercial and Requena, was commenced yesterday, prepara tory to tbe construction of a fine brick block by Mr. Requena. Our enterprising merchant, Mendel Meyer, has returned from Ban Fran cisco, loaded down with the best sto ,-k of goods he ever purchased. It is wonderful, tbe amount of goods he sells. At a meeting of the Los Angeles Guards, held Wednesday evening, the following officers were elected: Cap tain, D. W. Fltzpatrick; First Lieu tenant, James Bartley; Orderly Bar gent, Wm. D. Barnum; First-Duty Sargent, Thomas Boland; Second- Duty Sargent, Matthew Btamer; Third Duty Sargent, John Sullivan. Three Corporals are yet to be supplied by appointment. Tbe election was spe cial, to till vacancies caused by the re moval of the late Captain, L. J. Ba criste, and tbe resignation of other officers. At Page A Gravel's carriage manu factory yesterday we saw au elegant single buggy, nearly completed, for ex-Governor Pio Ploo. The running gear is silver-bronzed and delicately striped, making an extremely novel but tasteful finish. The body and top are of tbe finest material that can be procured and finished in a style to cor respond with tbe other work. The buggy, when completed, will cost about $800. and we safely venture tbe assert ion that no finer of its klud can be found in tbe State. Several parties have accused us of mis-spelling some of the catch-words in our report of the spelling-match of Wednesday evening. By way of ex planation we will state that we were guided by Worcester—the standard taken in our office—and by that au thority all of the words were printed correctly. In this there was only one deviatlou from any other authorized orthography. Worcester gives da guerrotype and Webster daguerreo type. The rest of the words, as sanc tioned by both authorities, are sibyl, herbaceous, ichthyology, troubadour, coautchouc and tic-douloureux. The Oriental Restaurant will be opened in Signoret's new building, opposite the Pico House, to-morrow, by Messrs. Fiote & Cason. Both of these gentlemen are caterers of long experience and we expect from them something above tbe average of so called first-class restaurants. Tbe dining rooms comprise a large ball for general accommodation and four pri vate apartments for families and par ties. All are fitted up in elegant Stylo snd furnish, together, probably tbe most retired and commodious estab lishment of the kind in the city. Mr. Kirkpatrick, who lives on the corner of Fort and Fifth streets, had two valuable sheep killed last Monday night by a vicious dog. The sheep were valued at $225 together, aud this amount of property sacrificed by a brute not worth two cents, is a severe tax on good nature. There is an or dinance, we believe, among the dead letters of this city, which provides for the licensing and muzzling of dogs; snd now that the Bummer is coming on, the present is a most propitious time for its enforcement. Let us have a squad of policemen out administer ing hot applications of powder and lead to these renegade curs and tbe city will be better off. "By the way," says a correspond ent of the San Diego Union, " have you noticed what a hubbub this spell ing mania has caused? A sad case of domestic infelicity was developed in tbe police court yesterday. An irate husband was brought up for assaulting bis wife. He plead guilty, but asked liberty to state in mitigation that be and the partner of bis joys had been having a little spelling-match. 'She made several small blunders,' said he, ' but when she insisted on spelling cow with aQI couldn't stand it any longer. Be as light as yeu can, your honor, and I'll promise not to do so anymore.' And then the Court sent him over to Hunsaker's hotel for ninety days." COMMON COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Thursday Evening, April Bth. The Council met at 8 P. M. with Mayor Beaudry in the Chair. The minutes of previous meeting were read and approved. The Mayor presented a report, stat ing the amount of fines collected dur ing the week $66 and for sale of ceme tery lot, $25. Placed on file.

ARTESIA. Sixth Day- Another Successful Day's Work-Nearly gaa.ooo for Land- Euoagb Land Left for oae i»«y More The Managers will Endeavor to ( lose oat the Last Piece To-day— Oraud Total of Males to Date about •140,000. The unprecedented success which has attended the Artesia sales from the very first day to the present was fairly illustrated on the grounds yes terday. The excursion was the largest yet had, and was composed of a larger number of bidders than usual. The bidding was lively during the greater portion of the day, and the results were satisfactory to all concerned. At the close of tbe day's work the mana gers found that they had about five hundred acres of land left, and upon the earnest solicitation of many who still desired to make purchases, they concluded to extend the sales one day more, and hence the usual excursion train will leave this morning at 9:30 a.m. There are more tickets now out than there have been for either of tbe former excursions, and to-day bids fair to be tbe big day of tbe sales. While this is true, it must be remembered that a large number of persons are now supplied with all the land they want, and hence tbe competition is not likely to be so lively. Tbe asso ciation bought the land, bowever, to sell, and hence will let it go to-day, even though the margin for expenses and profit is very small. For this rea son these will be a better chance to get bargains than during the former days when tbe competition was more lively. This is announced as posi tively the hist free excursion to Arte sia. Should any lands remain unsold after to day (which is improbable) they will be disposed of at private sale. Following are the figures of yesterday's sale: . . > . _ _ .

Mr. Noyes bought the land at the last sale, sunk an artesian well in connection with Dr. J. H. Russell, and now sells the traot, with a half interest in tbe well, at a very handsome advance. Th* Chino Ranch. Tbe solid foundation of real estate in Los Angeles county is well demon strated by the late purchase of a half interest in the above-named ranch by Mr. I. W. Hellman. Mr. Hellman is one of the shrewdest and most far-see ing bankers of Southern California, and on the eve of his departure for Europe he saw no better investment for $150,000 of his surplus capital than to put it In solid ground, where bulla and bears could not break through aud Btenl. The entire ranch contains some 35,000 acres, beautifully situated in the Spadra valley, six miles East of Spadra and within three-quarters of a mile of the railroad. Ten thousand acres of Mr. Hellman's purchase is moist land and capable of producing anything that grows in semi-tropical California. The whole tract is well watered by streams from tne adjacent mountains and foot-hills, and beside has number less springs flowing the year round. Heretofore it has been devoted to pas turage, but it is capable of much bet ter things, and we expect some day to see it divided into small farms and under the best state of cultivation. In any event Mr. Hellman's purchase must be regarded as a shrewd invest ment, and we doubt not that it is well worth half a milliou doilars. Personal. J. B. Tombes, D. D., formerly Presi dent of Carleton College, Ohio, called upon us yesterday. The Doctor re signed his position in that institution on the 24th of March last, and came directly to this county, and is now a resident of tbe vicinity of Anaheim, having bought laud in advance of bis coming. He is a minister of the Bap tist Church and proposes to preach in this city on Sunday, the 18th instant. He brings letters of the highest rec ommendation with him and looks as though he had been well cared for iv mind and body. We give him a hearty welcome among us, and con- ? rutulate the members of tbe Baptist Church in this county upon the acqui sition of so able a man. To Parents. Have you read the monthly reports of the scholarship and deportment of your children ? Have you compared their standing with tbe standing in the previous months of this session? The preparation of these reports gives the teachers much labor. This is lost if your children see that you are in different in reference to their pro gress. HOTEL ARRIVALS. PICO HOUSE.
