Insure your life by coming to Los Angeles for your health. The absorbing question—was it fog, or grog, that caused tiie loss of the Ventura? The Orizaba will leave for San Francisco sometime to-morrow. The Ancon went up yesterday. Go to the sale of Park Square prop erty to-day. There will be some bar gains secured. It is reported that the picnic of the Irish Literary and Social Club netted the Society somewhat over $300. We publish this morning the cartl of J. W. Stump, attorney tl law, whose many friends will be pleased to meet him in a new role. Donations of clothing for the sufferers by the Ventura disaster, can be left at the United States Hotel antl will be thankfully received. •The Main street horse railway is be ing built rapidly and will be a great convenience to the people in the vicin ity of that street. Mr. Joseph Myers, formerly of Armstrong county, Pennsylvania, and reputed to be an experienced oil man, is prospecting for the slippery fluid iv this vicinity. We were wrong in our statement of yesterday in saying that the Ventura was an iron ship. Isn't there some other reason that can be as signed for the variation of that com pass? The annual meeting of the Grange Co-operative Company will be held on the 4th of May for the election of a new Board of Directors and the trans action of other important business. The steamer San Luis arrived at San Pedro yesterday. There was m r chandise for this place but no passen gers, it being exclusively a freight boat. It was a dull shipping day for Los Angeles yesterday, there being only 193 boxes ef lemons and oranges and 54 bales of wool sent by rail to San Francisco. Picnics to Santa Monica beach are becoming quite popular. A party went down yesterday, but the atmos phere was disagreeably cool and they returned early. By the end of this week most of the oranges in this valley will have been picked and shipped to San Francisco. Shippers have been delayed, owing to the difficulty of hiring reliable pick ers. We are glad to see that Mr. George B. Davis, of the Alden Fruit Drying Company, is ou the streets again after his severe prostration from a relapse into typhoid fever. He seems re turned from the dead. Elegant vHIa sites, beautified with vineyards and orange groves, situated in the San Gabriel fruit belt, are of fered for sale by Wilson & Shorb, in small and convenient tracts. Apply to C. Cabot, Temple Block, or to Wil son & Shorb, at Lake Vineyard. Mr. Jacob Steinbach and family, late of Leavenworth, Kansas, are vis iting us with the intention of locating. Mr. Steinbach was one of the unlucky Ventura's passengers, and lost all his baggage, but is not disgusted with all California in consequence. The Graud Jury is in session, to the terror of evil-doers. The criminals were arraigned before them on Mon day. It is hard to tell when their la bor will be completed, as many legal points arise continually, and it takes the District Attorney considerable time to settle tbe difficulty. Our distinguished visitor, Past Grand Master Fox, of San Francisco, was cordially received last evening by Orange Grove Encampment at the Odd Fellows' Hall. It was a generous interchange of kindly sentiment, pleasing to the members and beneficial to the Order. The Mutual Aid Association yester day levied an assessmtnt of three dol lars per member on the death of E. K. Dunlapof Tulare county, who died a few weeks since, leaving a dependent family. The assessment is due imme diately and delinquent in twenty days. The association ordered one-fourth of the benefit be paid immediately. Mr. J. D. Dorian will open on Mon day, May 3d, a select school for male and female pupils. Mr. Dorian de sires to state that his aim will be to secure the thorough and rapid pro gress of his pupils, giving special at tention to the moral, as well as intel lectual training, of those under his charge. Full particulars and terms are given in our advertising columns. Two urchins of the genus school-boy aged about eight years, engaged yes terday in a fist fight in front of a blacksmith shop near the Spring street school house. They clinched, punched and bit in English,which was quite intelligible; but when we found they were swearing in Spanish, not being acclimated yet, we prepared to leave in disgust. The fight ended in an American yell from one of the con testants, in response to a bite from the other. A company has been Incorporated to work the oil lauds, two miles West of town at the oil wells, adjacent to Mayor Beaudry's hill property. A powerful machine has been contracted for in the East, which has the power of boring to a depth of 2,000 feet. At a depth of 800 to 1,200 feet the pro jectors expect to strike gas which they will try to utilize. Oil and water are expected at a greater depth, but whether gas, oil or water, is the pro duct ofthe boring, we hope the enter prising compauy will be rewarded and the country benefited. Lost Through Bad Management. It is now announced officially, that none or the passengers baggage on the Ventura will lie saved. This will strike a severe blow to many who had a great portion of all their worldly goods on the ill-fated steamer, and more so, as many of them consider that the loss need not have been sus tained, if proper efforts had been put forth to save the baggage at the out start. According to our account ofthe disaster, published lastßunday morn ing, no attempt was made to secure any of the effects from the steamer during the night of the 20th, or the following day. Mr. Win. F. Kellett, ono of the unfortunate passengers, called at our office yesterday, anil stated that, on the morning of the 21st, two hours were wasted in an at tempt to rig a tackle for the transfer of provisions to the shore, and after this had beeti abandoned, a bout was sent out and brought the edibles to land in a few minutes. There seemed to be no system, no intelligent man agement of affairs, antl no consider able effort put forth, either for the ac comodation of the passengers or the rescuing of their goods, or other val uables, on board the wreck. Grand Italian Opera. To-night will be presented at Turner Hall, Donizetta's famous opera, Don Pasquale, by the Italian Lyric Com pany. Every preparation has been made by the manager to put Don Pas quale on the stage in a highly credita ble manner, and none of our music lovers should fail to be present. The rehearsals of the troupe convince us that the presentation of the far-famed opera will be a musical success alike creditable to the singers and gratify ing to the audience. The following is the caste: Don Pasquale, Sr. Marra; Dottore Malatesta, Mine. Franzini; Norina, Mme. Reiffarth; Ernesto, Sr. Risoluti; Notaro, Sr. Labrunie. The music will be under the direction of Prof. Schad; stage manager, Sr. La brunie. With some of these artists, Los Angeles has a pleasing acquaint ance. Sr. Marra and Mme. Franzini sang on tiie occasion of Madame Ara bella Goddard's visit to our city aud proved themselves accomplished mu sicians and cultivated vocalists. Mme. Reifiarth has sang to our people at different times and always acquitted herself with credit. The other mem bers of the troupe are, we are assured, thorough musicians and singers. Go early and secure your seat at the Hotel dcs Princes, Lewin's music store or Turn-Verein Hall. Park Square. The sale of the Park Square property opened yesterday with the most satis factory results to all concerned. Of the 04 lots placed on the market, 25 were sold, aggregating $4,143.

Besides, the lots are going cheap aud all those ou the alert should not fail to attend the sale to-day. _______________ Spanish Items. (Translated for the HEKALDfrora La Cronlca) Last Saturday at 7 p. m. were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, Don Juvencio Valenzuela and Miss Mar garita Reyes, both of this city. Not a single death has been regis tered on the books of the Catholic Church of this city during the past week and but one marriage and six baptisms. Mr. James Kays has lately been con fined to his room, suffering an attack of the measles. We are happy to learn of his convalescence and hope to see him soon attending to his duties. Death, the relentless leveler of all things, on tbe 18th of this month, vis ited Anaheim and left desolate the home of Don Pedro Blanco and Doha Manuela Garfias, taking away their son Peter. Two Catholic priests left this city a few days ago for Sau Bernardino to assist in the ceremony of removing the remains of Mr. .Eneas Quinn from the cemetery to the monument just finished near the church. The widow of Mr. Quinn provided the funds for the erection of the church. Exit. The steamer Ancon, for San Fran cisco, took a large number of passen gers and considerable freight yesterday from this city. The following is her Sassenger list: R E Dyer, R Dunn, F ierrant, Geo Pace and wife, Michael Shay, T W Wright, Geo Brown and wife, J A Deyer, C Miller and wife, P H Nook, J B Smith, Mrs D Finis and two children, M Maher, C Zeirath, H Schumaker, Miss £ Wright, Mrs Geo Brown, Mrs Farrell and infant, C P Fogg, Wm Earle, A G Lester, W H Freer, W C Johnson, H M Cameron, A Ferguson, P Grisbey, C H Allright, O W White, Jos Quarby, G W Morde cai, F M Wright, CE Davis, J Mo- Cormick, Jas Thompson, A L White, H Jachel, H McCloskey, Mrs Piker, Mrs J G Davis, F W At wood, WR Hatch,.

The Wealth of Alaska. In the purchase of Alaska the Gov ernment obtained a bonanza, so far as seal fishing aud coal mining are con cerned, but its wealth is controlled by the Alaska Commercial Company, in stead of being open to the people. The Pacific coast is largely interested in the development of the Russian pe ninsula and desires that the special privileges accorded to the monopoly known as the Commercial Company, be revoked. The industrial interests of California should move in the mat ter and agitate this question on behalf ofthe people. We gladly publish the following proceedings: At a regular meeting of Compton Grange, held April 10th, 1875, the fol lowing preamble and resolutions were passed: Whereas, The Government ofthe United States has acquired the Terri tory of Alaska as the common prop erty of the whole people and paid for the same out of the common treasury and Whereas, It is the right and for tbe interest ol tiie whole people of the United States tiiat they should have free access to every part of the public domain as a legitimate field for the exercise of their skill aud enterprise; aud Whereas, We are informed and believe tiiat said territory abounds in natural wealth, such as is especially essential to tbe building up of a great commerce on tbe Pacific slope; aud Whereas, We, as citizens of Cali fornia, are especially interested in tbe development of the seal, cod and sal mon fisheries and the coal and timber wealth of said territory; and Whereas, Our Government utterly disregarded our said rights as citizens of the United States, and especially ignoring our interests as citizens of California, has created a monopoly of the seal fisheries of certain islands ad jacent to and forming a part of said territory hy leasing the same for a term of years to a private corporation by the terms of which lease all pwrsons are practically excluded from said ter ritory; and Whereas, The inhabitants of said islands and the mainland of Alaska bave represented to the Government and the people of the United States that they are practically reduced to a state of abject slavery by the employes of said private corporation and the United States officials resident among them; therefore, Resolved, That the leasing of the islands of St.George and St. Paul, and the consequent control of Alaska, to the Alaska Commercial Company is a high-handed outrage, a violation of the rights of every American citizen and especially injurious to the Pacific slope. Resolved, That the degrading bond age to which the inhabitants of said islands and territory have been re duced, is a disgrace to the American people. C. W. Coi.trin, J. G. Hathorn, T. V. Kimble, \ Com. B. M. Twomblv, J. J. Morton, On motion it was ordered sent to the Pacific Rural Press and the Los An geles Herald for publication. T. V.

Everything is as green around there, and crops as promising, as if they bad a Spring shower every week. No signs of the recent cold snap are visible. This certaiuly, is the most desirable soil we ever saw, aud the country will soon be densely set tled. Homes at a Bargain.

Yesterday morning about lOo'clock Hanry Myers, the would- be suicide, escaped from his room, in the rather primitive costume of Adam before the fall, aud made a Hying trip through tbe streets. During his progress he was followed by an enthusiastic audi ence of admiring citizen-, and was finally given a pass ou an express wagon to the jail. He made himself at home by immediately seizing a padlock bar and clearing the room of all spectators, but was afterwards per suaded to re-assume the masculine toggery which he had temporarily abandoned. He is now more composed and less likely to tear himself away on such short notice. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. LAND FOR SALE! MESERVE 4 LOOP TRACT.
