Welch of Agricultural Park, which the owner can have by proving property and paying charges. The Republicans of this county are preparing for the campaign, but the third-term design of Grant will have a disastrous effect on them, even to the remotest counties of the United States. Specimens from the Winston mine ; were exhibited in our streets yester day carrying about eighty dollars in silver to the ton. Capt. Taylor, the superintendent of the mine, is quite enthusiastic. The Mayor's Court yesterday morn ing had a few insignificant drunks up for judgment, which brought a few dollars into the treasury, and added a few hearty appetites to the city board ing house.

Bard It a candidate for the patronage of our people as a horticul turist and ornamental gardener. Mr. Bard thinks that Los Angeles can be improved ono hundred percent, by a little attention to neatness and taste in caring for nature's products grow ing in such luxuriance inourcity. An experienced ornamental gardener and florist can make a little paradise out of very ordinary premises and at a light expense. We can recommend 11. W.

Fitzpatrick, who was so unfortunate as to be in the last flro on Main street, understands the mould of form better than any tailor Los Ange les has ever had. With him the dress of man becomes a fine art, and with his correct ideas and elegant taste he has given satisfaction to ail the fash ionables of this city. There is a genius about Fitzpatrick's work, such as tiie artist uses in draping the figures in a fine painting, and he has attained great distinction in dressing the human form divine. A Chinese Case In Court. The case of Win Sing, charged with assault with a deadly weapon on Ah Yung, was tried in tiie County Court yesterday. Tiie prisoner, whoso alias is Quakee, was dressed in a black blouse, check pants and the other Chi nese accompaniments, and his trial was attended by 41 Chinamen in black, blue, white and lead colored blouses, slippered and booted, pimpled and scrofulous, ranging from the bleached, pale Mongolian to the smoked copper-color. Some of the Johns evidently had been out on an opium bust, or had been playing Chi nese poker all night, and were just taking a'little recreation in witnessing the trial of the unfortunate Quakee. Ah Foy and Ah Won were sworn, American fashion, as interpreters, and Ah Foy administered the oath in Chi nese fashion to Ah Gin, Ah Dun, the prisoner and two others, who took it amidst the squawking of a half-dozen Spring chickens, just ready for the sacrifice. Ah Foy explained that he swore them "same white man, tell story, go San Quentin, same go to h—l to white man,tell story cuttee chicken, cuttce him same." The witnesses then started for the street, where spectators and jury followed, and, in front of the' Court House ou Spring streel, the crowd formed a ring, with the Chinese interpreter and witnesses iv the centre. After a short chant from a document that probably graced a Chinese fire cracker box, and a lecture from a Japanese tea label, each wit ness chopped a chicken's head off with a little cleaver, the blood flew, the chickens kicked, the crowd scattered, and the witnesses returned to Court in triumph. The chickens, which were to fly to heaven with the Chinese per jury, if there was any, wore left lying in the street, as the boss swearer mut tered, "Chicken nogoodee." A China man, in explaining the ceremony, said, " Killee chicken, Chinaman swear hard;" and their evidence afterwards justified the statement, and the attor neys were thankful that each man killed only one chicken, for the slaugh ter of two might have doublet! their swearing ability. As a witness, John Chinaman is a success, but it is a pity for the poor chicken. Smith & Ward, Wholesale Dealers. In another column will be found the advertisement of Smith & Ward, auc tion and commission merchants, im porters of Eastern merchandise, ami grain, wool and produce dealers, who are the successors of J. L. Ward, at No. 8 Commercial street. This firm is composed of Mr. J. L. Ward, an active and enterprising business man of this city, and Mr. S. Prentiss Smith, late of rit. Louis, where he was engaged as a broker and banker. These gentle men make a strong firm, and we ex pect to see their trade sales of staple groceries, etc., become a marked feat ure of business in Los Angeles. Their connection with manufacturers East will enable them to offer goods away dowu close to jobbing prices in tbe East, having made special rates on many staples in general use. Their trade In wool, grain and produce will be very large, as their warehouse ad vantages will be of the most extensive character. Orders for Eastern goods promptly attended to, and consign ments handled to the best advautage. Honey for the Million. A few days ago, as one of our friends was taking a stroll through the Cath olic Cemetery in company with his wife, be discovered a wheelbarrow smeared with fresh honey. On push ing his investigations still further he found a man in a disused burial vault, busy shoveling out honey, which he piled into the wheelbarrow and wheeled away. The man said that was his third load, and the supply was not half exhausted. Our friend took a look into the cavity and saw festoons of honey, fall ing in beautiful folds from the roof and sides of the depository for the dead. The deserted vault had become a safe resort jbr the bees, and for years they had stored their sweet deposit, to at last become the prey of man. After such an occurrence, surely no one will be disposed to question that California is a land overflowing with milk and honey. Bed and Lounge Factory. The advertisement of Carl Herberger, manufacturer of bedding and lounges, No. 13 Aliso street, appears in another column. The advertiser is a practical upholsterer, and guarantees to do good work. His manufactures, wher ever used, have taken the preference over goods made elsewhere, and he will undoubtedly receive the patron age of all needing good work in bed ding, lounges or upholstery. The fur niture stock bought of Mr. D. A. Stern is for sale oelow cost. Attempted Assassination. On Sunday evening Mr. T. Jeff White, of Casa Linda, hearing a noise in his front yard, stepped out to ascer tain the cause, wheu he was shot at by un assassin who stood behind a walnut tree, Mr. White attempted to use his pistol, but it snapped, and tiie would-be assassin escaped under cover of darkness. No clue to the perpe trator of the outrage. The Grange Co-ope rative Company. The annual meeting of the Grange Co-operative Company, which was held yesterday at the Grange store, was well attended, and the business transacted was of the most important character. At 2 o'clock in the after noon about eighty ladies and gentle men assembled in the St. Charles dining room, to discuss an elegant dinner, and for nearly two hours the party reveled in the feast of good things provitled in Salarl & Gehring's best style. The occasion was most enjoyable, and tbe annual business meeting an epoch in the hislory of the Grange Co-operative Company. Travelers' Home.
