There will be a special meeting of Pentalpha Lodge, No. 202, F. & A. M., this evening, in the third degree. 'Tia but a little faded flour—and yet the ladies persist in putting it ou their faces. Three car loads of wool and one of oranges were shipped to Wilmington yesterday. A car load of wool still remains iv the depot for shipment. A well-boring company has been formed at Sau Diego and they are de termined to find artesian water if they have to go 4,000 feet for it. That's pluck. Louis Walker former Editor of tlie i Neasho Valley Bigifter Kansas, is in our city. He proposes to take a look at our Valley and if lie is pleased, make his home with us. Joe Bryant, arraigned before Mayor Beaudry yesterday on the charge of throwing stones at somebody, was dis charged through an informality in the. complaint. Read the advertisement of Messrs. Jones & Noyes, which appears this morning. This is the all-popular auc tion house of our city and heeds no words of approval from us. There are niesiagvs at the Western Union Telegraph Ollicu for Juo. Duw son; John Trabuco; Rev. Tbeo. H. Por ter; Mrs. Kate Miller and C. W. Davis. We found upon our table last night the card of Mr. Edwin Goodall, Sec retary and Cashier of the Goodall Nel son & Perkins (Jo. We regret that we were not at home to receive the visit, and must ask its repetitiou. The County School Superintendent has made au apportionment of ninety live cents to each of the children which belong to those districts of this county which are entitled to pro rata appor tionment. Tbe amount apportioned is $6,580 20. Our city schools receive $2,290 45. Notices of apportionment have been mailed to all school district clerks entitled to receive them. We understand that this is tlie last appor tionment for the school year ending Juue 30, 1875. Professor Ploennies will give a pic nic for his German-English school in the Arroyo Seco to-day. The picnic ers will leave the city at 8:30 a. m. The youngsters will be sure to enjoy themselves to the full limit that the law allows. We saw at the Orient saloon yester day some fine specimens of silver and lead ore, taken from the Promontorio mine, in the Coso District. The spec imens assay $161 in silver and $1 25 in gold to the ton, with 78 per cent, lead. The mine is owned by Mr. Ra fael Cuerro. Parties going to Santa Monica or Truxton should take the left hand road from the Half-way House, there by avoiding the steep grade down the cation at Santa Mouica. A new road has been graded to the beach one' fourth of a mile South of Truxton and teams can now follow the shore of the Pacific from the Shoo Fly Exchange to the camping grounds of Santa Mon ica. Mr. J. W. Potts showed us some cu rious geological specimens yesterday taken from the excavation on Temple street. They comprised a faint trac ing of a mollusk shell embodied iv solid clay and a piece of petrified bone. A specimen recently taken from the sauie locality had the appearance of being a part of the frame of some large mastadom or hugb whale. As found in the solid earth thirty feet be low the surface it measured nine feet in length and over a foot iD circumfer ence being carried in the form of a huge rib. Only a section of tbe specimen was saved. Oue of the finest improvements in the city will be the re-building of tlie Lafayette Hotel. The whole of the back of the house is already being torn down, and the front will shortly be built up. The stores will be just half as large as they are now, and, as the Important has a very large stock ou hand, they will not have half room enough for their goods and in order to prevent them from being damaged by dirt aud dust, they have decided to sell all their Spring goods at less than cosi,and others, such as cottons, table linen, etc., at exact cost. We advise all to call at the Important and con vince themselves of the great bar gains. Such bargains they can never get again, aud in order to prevent a great rush, we advise all to call early and take advantage of the building of the Lafayette Hotel. COMMON COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS.

The Committee on Lands reported in relation to the recovery of the tri angular piece of land at the intersec tion of Virgin and Alameda streets, as the same laud had heen dedicated to public use.

Mr. Workman strongly opposed the recommendation of the Committee and, on motion, the abstract of peti tioner for deed to said tract was read. The report of the committee was placed on file and the matter referred back for further investigation. On motion, it was ordered that a notice of intention to improve the main zanja on Alameda street be drafted. . The Committee on Lands reported on the petition of the Sisters of Char ity for laud for hospital purposes, rec ommending that a tract of ten acres in East Loa Angeles belonging to the city be granted to the petitioners.

By permission, Governor Downey addressed the Council on the question of grading Main street in front of his block. He claimed that Main street as it formerly stood was oue of the best road-beds in the world; it has always carried off Its drainage and has been heretofore the cleanest street in the city. By grading to the newly estab lished level much valuable property will be almost ruined and the street not materially improved. He entered his protest further against the estab lished grade of New High street. He reminded the Council of the fact that citizens have rights which cannot be ignored by their representatives, the Council. By permission, Capt. Thorn ad dressed (he Council on the subject of the Main street grade. He asked that the Council reconsider the grade es tablished for said street between the St. Charles Hotel and Second street.

The City Marshal presented his reg ular weekly report, which was placed on tile. Tho Zanjero presented an account of expenditures ou zanjas from January Ist to date, showing a balance due him of $21 50.

Metzger on railroad depot grounds was presented and referred to Commit tee on Finance.

On motion, the vote taken relative to zanja No. 6 was reconsidered and repairs ordered *to be made at once. The special committee on Plazas was instructed to have fence around upper plaza repaired. Adjourned. The Alleghanians. The pleasant entertainment given by this inimitable company is just such as the people of Los Angeles de light to patronize. It is refined aud chaste from beginning to end, except that horrible Sam Collins, who makes everybody laugh in spite of them selves. There is nothing vulgar about Sam, either; only he was raised on saver-kraut and talks backwards in English. The old fathers and mothers in Israel are all ready to shake their sides when the young Quaker and his sweetheart present themselves. It c»rries these good old folks back to their youthful days. These are only little funny eposides thrown in; the music is the attraction. S h "*",i — 1 km fn mn >u« iiieionean, blow it out of trumpets, shake it out of bells, knock it out of tumblers and whet It out of goblets. Everything they touch seems to transform itself into an instrument of music. Of course the house was full last night and will be to-night again. This is Sam's ben efit night. We hope the landlord will feed him on saver-kraut to-day; we want him to do his best to-night. Suicide. A stranger who came to Spadra from San Bernardino yesterday committed suicide by shooting him self through the head. We have been unable to learn the name of the party or anything about his history, as there were uo papers about the body by which it could be identified. Our report states that about 3 o'clock iv the afternoon the deceased approached a boy employed as cook in the estab lishment of Mr. Bryan and expressed a wish to purchase a revolver. Tak ing the weapon in his hands ap parently for inspection, the man cocked it and said that be intended to kill himself aud, by threats, com pelled the boy to stand back. He then went to a corral, about 100 yards from Mr. Egan's store, and deliber ately shot himself in the right ear, falling dead on the spot. The de ceased was a middle-aged man, of small statute, with sandy whiskers aud moustache, and appeard to be a teamster. The cause of the desper ate deed is beyond conjecture. Buy a Home. Tiiere wiil be an auction sale of choice city lots next Monday at 10 o'clock A. m. The property is located on Olive and Charity Sts. between Bth and 9th., two blocks from the Spring and Sixth St. railroad and on the cor ners of Hill and llth Sts., one block from the Main St. railroad and oppo site Mr. O. W. Childs beautiful resi dence. The tract is owned by Mr. W. H. S. Brooks and others, aud embra ces some 20 lots. The terms of sale we learn are one third cash, one third in six months, and at the rate of one per cent, per month. This sale will afford a fine chance to those of limit ed means who are desirous of secur iug a good homestead lot in tlie most healthy and finest part of the city. The Main street railroad which is now being laid will run within one block of the lots located on Hill and llth street. This is without doubt one of the best chances to make a good in vestment. Plats of the property can be seen at the auction rooms of Messrs. Jones & Noyes who will conduct the sale. Conductor J. W. Hansen made his farewell trip over the San Fernando and Anaheim roads yesterday. He has resigned his position, and will be sueceod by Mr. Chas. Dunn. Mr. Hansen proposes to take a short pas ear in tbe country and will then leave for Bear Valley. Doubtless he has a bonanza in his eye, arid we most sin cerely hope he will find it. Of all the railroad men whom we have met in the course of our travels, we have fount! Mr. Hansen the most uniformly polite and accommodating; jealous alike for the interests of the railroad company and its passengers who came under his charge. His absence will be regretted by the traveling public, who have learned to appreciate him, and by the many friends he has made all along the line. Spanish Items. [Translated tor tho Hekai.i. from I.a Cronica] Lazara Medina was lined $14 for resisting Officer Thomas a few days since. Messrs. J. M. Estudillo and John B. Castro are candidates la-tore the State Democratic Convention lor the ofiice of State Treasurer. Bishop Mora left this cily day be fore yesterday for Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Inez, Monterey, etc., in which places he will adminis ter the sacrament of continuation. We are informed that Prof. Marra proposes to give a series of representa tions of French opera houtle and Ital ian opera in this city, and that he has effected the engagement of Signor Risoluti, teuor, and other artists, who will soon arrive. As Mr. J. J. Carrillo, our indefatiga ble Marshal, was returning from a short pasco with his family on Sun day last, he was asked to send au officer to a garden about ten miles off, to the South of the city, where one Trinidad Borruelas was threatening to take the life of Don Pedro Belliard. Mr. Carrillo, without loss of time, left his family and in a few minutes ar rived on the spot and arrested Bor ruelas. Messrs. Jesus Teran and Benito Valle honored their friends last Sun day night with a ball and supper at the hall of Mr. Teran, ou Upper Main street. About 100 of our Spanish- American friends were present. The beauty aud gracefulness of the aenori taa present was something. Los Ange les should be proud of. HOTEL ARRIVALS. BACKMAN HOUSE-Mr. 4 Mrs. Backman.
