Mrs. 0. J. Woodman, of Chico, is a candidate for School Superintendent in Butte county. That's cheek-oh! There was no Eastern mail yester day morning. Where is the break now in Uncle Sam's postal routes? A local telegraph line has been es tablished between the Western Union office and the depot. The foundation of the new brick and iron block on tbe corner of Main and First streets is nearly finished. The Lafayette Hotel will be able to accommodate 250 guests in a few weeks. The crowded state of our hotels should push the owners of them to au extension of their limits. The French Benevolent Society gives a picnic aext Sunday week at Arroyo Seco. The Masons of this city have secured the Merced theatre for the oration at the coming anniversary of St. John. The organizing committee of the Hussar Company meets next Tuesday night in Moore & Kelleher's office. The Turn Verein Society have gen erously volunteered to sing the chorus in II Trovatore Wednesday and Fri day nights next week. We are indebted to Mr. Carreras for a number of fine photographic views of the San Fernando oil regions; also several of the San Fernando mission. We had the pleasure of a call yester day from Mr. H. Becker, of the Ken sington Knitting Mills, Philadelphia, who is visiting Los Angeles. The boquet of wax flowers raffled off at Charlie Bush's jewelry store last evening was won by the number owned by T. Jeff. White. 44 was the highest number thrown. The Water Company only allows water to be used iv gardens for two hours iv the morning aud two in the evening. They hope iv this way to prevent a waste of water. In the County Court on Tuesday ln the case of Win Sing, the jury brought in a verdict of not guilty. There was too much chicken iv the case. Chicken no goodee. As the Prismoidal track is a success, using only one rail, we will expect soon to see an air-line started which will need no rail at all, but will skim the air like a bird. Slanders in Eastern papers against California continue to multiply so fast that it is impossible to deny them, so we will let emigrants come aud see for themselves. Colonel Crawford, Chief Engineer of the Los Angeles and Independence Railroad, has arrived in San Francisco, and a telegram received from him yes terday announces that he will be dowu by the Orizaba on her next trip. The Hussar Company has opened an enrollment list, which has received thirty-five signatures. Messrs. E. F. De Celis, Horace Bell, M. Kelleher, Frank Quirado and R. D.

Moody & San ity, preaching in Agricultural Hall. Dr. Fernandez, a distinguished musi cal amateur, has kindly consented to take the part of Ferrando, in II Trova tore. This is a great accommodation to the Italian Opera Troupe, as they had no basso pro/undo, and Dr. Fer nandez will fill the part admirably. Parties who miss their daily Eastern papers since the break in the road has been repaired, are beginning to think that the paper mail was utted to patch the road up. A little inquiry for this back paper mail would be to the credit of some enterprising special mail agent. Prof. Thomas A. Saxon announces himself a candidate for Superintendent of Public Schools. Prof. Saxon is a young and enterprising educator, free from all antediluvian prejudices and pedagogic bigotry. He has been suc cessful as a teacher in our midst, and is well fitted for the position to which he aspires. Serious Gunshot Wound. A man named Conway, with a gun shot wound in his hand, suffered am putation of an arm yesterday about 5 p. m., in a lodging house opposite the Pico House. Dr. Stanway performed tbe operation quite successfully in the presence of Drs. Wise, Brook, Kurtz and Orme, and Mr. Couway is now in a fair way to recover, minus an arm be low the elbow. He is a middle-aged man, and received the wound about a month ago near this city. There was no opportunity for the hand to heal, as it was badly shattered. Amputation and Death. Last Sunday Mr. Louis Aucouturier was thrown from a wagon at the cor ner of Fourth and Main streets and fractured a leg in two places. He was immediately curried to the French Hospital, from whence he was after wards meved to the County Hospital, where he received every attention. A day or two ago the surgeons deter mined to amputate the limb, but it was delayed until yesterday. At tho appointed hour—ll a. m.—Drs. Wise, Brooke, Kurtz, Orme, Stanway, Mc- Kee and Euphrat were present and amputation was performed by Dr. Wise, the leg bein>r taken off high up in the thigh. Every attention was paiti to the unfortunate man, but at 3 p. M. he breathed his last. Several causes contributed to this result, viz: the patient physically was weak, men tally he lacked vitality, and gangrene had set in. Gangrene was caused by the sharp edge of the fractured bone severing an artery, preventing the cir culation of blood iv the extremities, so that the lower limb was actually dead. The deceased was aged 21 years, and leaves near relatives in France. The Merced Theatre. This popular place of amusement has been undergoing repairs for some time, and when completed will be tbe most comfortable and elegant theatre south of San Francisco. An elegant balcony encircles the auditorium, from which the stage is visible ut every point. The seats are comfortable, and the capacity much enlarged. Mr. Ab bott, as a caterer to amusement lovers, has not been uumindful of the safety of his visitors, but has strengthened the theatre throughout, and furnished an easy entrance ami safe exit for spectators. The lighting facilities are admirably arranged and the ventila tion perfect. As soon as the improve ments are finished, we hope to see the building opened by a good theatrical company, with an elegant audience as patrons. Silver Wedding. A pleasant reception was given at the Backmau House last night, in honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Back man. The parlors of the house were aglow with their garniture of flowers and fair faces; there was mirth, music, dancing, and finally a feast worthy of Hymen. A substantial mark of es teem was shown in a fine array of sil verware, presented by friends of the happy couple. We can only hope that the golden wedding of mine host and hostess will nnd them as full of vigor and surrounded by as many friends as they now have in passing the twenty fifth mile-stone. Festival To-Night. The ladies of the Presbyterian church give a grand festival to-night in aid of the building fund. We hope to see Turn-Vereln hall crowded with the youth and beauty of Los Angeles, and that the receipts may be so large as to immediately insure the building of a substantial church. There will be an "Art Gallary" cormeotod with tho fco tival, in which the portraits of undent and modern celebrities will be exhib ited. Such an excellent entertainment is seldom offered. Correction. We were misinformed as to the gathering at Orange Hall on Tuesday. The District Council, Patrons of Hus bandry, of Los Angeles and San Ber nardino counties, was in session, and had the banquet at the St. Charles. We do not desire to deprive tbe Coun cil of the feast at the St. Charles, and we apologize to the Grange Co-opera tive Company for giving them such an elegant repast on paper. The Choral Society Last Nighl. The concert last night for the bene fit of the building fund of the Presby terian church was quite a success. The ladies and gentlemen composing the Choral Society certainly made a musical hit In their first appearance, and we hope to see them soon again. The audience evidently appreciated our home talent, as the singers were frequently encored and the lady solo ists showered with boquets. Sad Tragedy at San Diego. About 8 o'clock on Monday evening San Diego was shocked to learn that Mr. J. G. Maxwell, an old citizen, had committed suicide iv his store at the foot of Fifth street. The horrible taking-off was accomplished by means of a double-barreled shot gun, which he fired into his head by pressing both triggers with a lath, causing instant death. For several days prior to the occurrence be had been quite despond ent, and it is supposed his morbid melancholy produced insanity and prompted suicide. His funeral took place Tuesday, from the Presbyterian church in San Diego. The deceased leaves a wife and several children to mourn his untimely fate. San Diego Items. Wool is coming into San Diego in large quantities. It is estimated that Cajon valley will produce this year 50,000 bushels of wheat.

We walked uloug a splendid street— We always walk, my love and I— And many a stately home we saw, Till he looked down * lib. half a sigh, And half a smile: "Grand oiks live here." I laughed a gay defiance then, And said! " We'ra grander far than they! You're grander far than all the men, "And I am grand .is any dame Who walks in velvet down the street, Forstrengtn and youth and love are mine!"— Ah! but his answering smile was sweet! A brilliant carriage past us rolled, A gray-beard sat in It, alone, My love said lightly: " There- he rides, A rich man." " Yes, and makes his moan; " For all his wealth that man would give If life were fresh and love were young, And he coubi walk, like us, and sing Tho song that yesterday we sung!' 1 My love ceased sighing. How we laughed And tos-ed our darts of harmless tun, And praised the blueness of the sky, Aud praised the giory of the sun! We drank a draught of fragrant wine, We breathed a pure, inspiring air, "And why, dear, did you marry me?" " Because you're good, and dear, aud fair.', "And why, and why?" . . . Oh, happy hour! i in, charming street and park and square, Where we beheld that brightest flower Which bloomed when Eve was young and fair! Ah, many a sober face we met That looked and questioned: " Who are these— These plain young people, who forget The Winter's cold, the naked trees?" Our eyes w re clear and theirs were blind, They saw not our companions gay, For Love was smiling close behind, And Joy dauced wildly all the way! —Atlantic, Monthly. Kansas News. When it Is not grasshopper news it is something else equally fatal from Kansas. The telegraph informs us that in Leavenworth, Kansas, on the 11th, W T . W. Embrey, editor of the Appeal, shot and fatally wounded Col. D. R. Anthony, editor of the Times and Postmaster of Leavenworth. As there are many Kansans present, to whom Col. Anthony is as well known as ex-Senator Pomeroy, the news ex cited much comment and elicited the following facts of hla eventful life: Col. Anthony is a brother of Susan B. Anthony and came to Leavenworth, Kansas, in 1859, as an insurance agent, immediately taking an active part in the political fights prior to Lincoln's election. As part owner of The Conservative, a reM-hot Radical paper, he got considerable notoriety, and at tbe commencement of the war be was active in driving Democrats out of Kansas. In 18G1 he shot the editor of the Enquirer, Satterlee, in the back aud killed him, and afterwards headed a mob which threw the material *ot the pa per into the Missouri river, and for which tbe city of Leavenworth after wards paid on a judgment $10,000. He helped to raise the noted 7'h Kansas cavalry, of jayhawking fame, with Jennison as Lieut. Colonel, but be came so obnoxious by bis tyrannical abuse of the men that he dare not stay with the regiment, and was in 1862 sent Uy Gen. Thomas Ewing, Jr., in irons to Fort Leavenworth, and dis missed the service, but afterwards had his disabilities removed. In 1863 by the help of Federal bayonets he was elected Muyor of Leavenworth, at the same time holding the office of Post mastei, Out ha 1(50-1 was badly defeated for re-election, ami came uear liming his life in attempting to close the polls. In 1865, 1868 and 1870 he was again defeated for Muyor, but in 1872 wus elected, there being no Demo cratic candidate. From 1870 to 1872, he was chairman of the Republican State Central Committee. Iv 1866, he had a street affray with Jennison, his former lieutenant colonel, shooting him in the thigh and then running away. In 1873, while he was in the office of Mayor, he was elected to the Legislature, aud in 1874, just before he left the Mayor's office, was ap pointed Postmaster, which office he still holds, unless relieved by death. During his eventful life, he has made no friends, and has only been tolerated because he had control of a newspaper and was feared. He was constantly deserting faithful friends and trying to make terms with bitter enemies. He advocated all the political rascality of Jim Lane, Sidney Clarke, General Blunt and Senator Pomeroy; was a Graut elector iv 1868, aud yet was totally unreliable as a party man. He wus a beau-ideul office-holder, and if he dies, will be followed to his grave by a large concourse of grateful Kan sans; but if he lives, they will regard his recovery as another judgment on the Republican party, as well as an infliction on the State. Pacific Coast Items. The water in the Yuba rivet is on the decline. The indebtedness of Solano county is at present set down at $293,050.

A large body of fine clay, suitable for making fire-brick, has been discovered on the Carbonero ranch East of the San Lorenzo river, Santa Cruz county. A small shooting scrape took place at Sierraville last Saturday night be tween a half-breed Indian called Billy Lane and a Chinaman, in which the latter was killed. The Central and Southern Pacific Railroads have filed an application in the Governor's office for patents to 60 acres of tide land in Mission Bay, San Francisco, and the land embraced in the right of way. A company has been organized to take water our of Kern river, near the railroad bridge to irrigate the entire scope of country lying North of the river within the limits of Keru county. The company claims 74,000 inches, miner's measurement. An Ohio paper says: We have miss ed hearing much sound criticism of those ohl Lexington and Concord chaps which we shall never hear now, by the failure to have Wendell l'hillipsspeak at the Centennial.
