Rumble & Gaertuer have the con tract to survey 200 lots near Santa Monica, in the Ballona Ranch. The manifest of the brig Deacon shows that she brings 212,362 feet of rough lumber and 15,839 linear feet of piles. The California State Dental Asso ciation will hold its sixth annual ses sion iv San Francisco, June Bth, at 10 A. M. Since our last report, there has been shipped from the depot 45 bales wool, 20 boxes lemons, 15,000 pounds brea, aud a horse for San Francisco and two cars to Spadra. The festival of the ladies of Merrill Lodge, I. O. G. T.| will take place on Friday and Saturday, May 21st and 22nd, at Rink Hall. They have ar ranged to have tableaux during the evenings. The Express has placed Sheriff Row land in au awkward position. It has made him build a great big brick house on ground owned by Sam Rowan. Besides this, Rowland says he is in doubt about when he shall get the money to pay for that house. The balance of the lots remaining unsold in the Brooks Tract will be auctioned off to-morrow at the auction rooms of Jones & Noyes. The prop erty is desirably located and very valu able, and this will be about the last chance this season to buy at auction such property as this. The Congregational church sociable will be held at the residence of Post master Bent, on Ninth street, this evening, to which all friends are cor dially invited. The cars of the Spring -tee; railroad will accorn uiodute return passengers as late as 10:15 P. M. The Mayor's Court yesterday wit nessed the preliminary examination of Mrs. Starkey, who is charged with blowing up a trespassing horse with kerosene, turpentine, giant pow<der and nitro-glycerine. She demanded a jury, but what a blowing up they will get if they don't act gallantly in the case! Yesterday morning, about half past 11 o'clock, as H. Hellmann was driv ing along Commercial street, between Los Angeles and Main, one of the buggy shafts broke, stopping the ve hicle suddenly, but otherwise doing no damage. The accident might have been serious but for the gentleness of the horse. We had the pleasure of a drive yes terday with Mr. George B. Davis, on an inspection tour to see his 80-acre barley field, about two miles out. In this case deep plowing aud subsoiling have triumphed, Mr. Davis having a good crop while his neighbors, who plowed shallow, have nothing to show. We hope Davis' tactics may be intro duced all through California. Mr. A. B. Lindeman, Centennial Agent for California, writes us tbat that the Executive Committee desire to hold entertainments throughout the State for the benefit or California's quota, and wishes us to provide him the names of five ladies and five gen tlemen who would be willing to take charge of an entertainment. Those de siring to take such a charge can leave their names with us. The Festival. The festival given at Turn-Verein Hall last night for the benefit of the Presbyterian Church proved a very pleasant affair. The hall was elegantly decorated with flowers and festoons of flags and fancy articles. Booths sup plied with notions to tickle the fancy and draw on the purse-strings were distributed about the hall and presided over by the ladies and misses of the church. In going the rounds of the hall we found the followiug: Fancy table, Miss Sue Bold and Miss Bettie Bettis; flower stand, Mrs. Clark and the Misses Ella Shields, A. Scott, Cornie Standford and Annie Thomas; fancy table, MissCasad and Miss Peel; refreshment table, Mrs. Doak and Mrs. Jackson; lemonade table, Miss Here ford, assisted by Laura Morris and Bertha Levy; fishing pool, Misses Glassell, Carrie Hereford, Amelia Weil and Nellie Pattou; Postoffice, Miss Russell and Miss Hamilton; hat stand, Lula Glassell, Kate Chapman, E. Havell and Sarah Anderson. A prominent feature of tbe evening was the art gallery, presided over by Mr. Chamberlin. Oue saw there more cu riosities in a minute than he could pick up in prowling around back-yards for a week. Everybody after inspect ing the gallery took a great interest in having somebody else see it.. The at tendance was not large, but sufficient we should judge to insure a good finan cial return for the benefit of the cause. COMMON COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Thursday Evenino, May 13th.

Re ports were quite favorable for crop until last Bunday, when the hot desert winds swept down our valley, drying up many kinds of crops and making the prospect less favorable for the farmer and for trade. BREADSTUEFS. The latest reports from San Fran cisco show a moderate export trade during the past week. The falling off in the wheat exports has a very marked influence on the volume of business. We have cleared three car goes of wheat for England since the Ist, showing a value of $210,000. The only other cargo clearances have been the steamer Great Republic for Yoko hama and Hongkong, with flour. The Liverpool wheat market is given at 8s lld©9s 2d for average California and 9s 2d@9s 6d for club. These are low figures, but tbe market continues to look weak under large imports and favorable weather for the crops. New York advices say the export trade continues light, shipping mar gins on all our principal staples being adverse. The recent advance in wheat has checked business, as neither miller nor exporter can purchase at present figures and realize a profit. This,with lower prices from the West and Eug land, has deprived the market of its buoyancy, aud at the close prices are a shade easier. Spring is selling at $1 18 @1 27 per bushel, with extra Minne sota for milling as high as $1 30 and Winter at $1 35(0>,l 37. Borne No. 2 Milwaukee has been sold for June de livery at $1 235. The telegraph reports fine growing weather in the West and Northwest, Rnd though the Winter crop sustained rather more thau average damage from the rigors of the past season, it is the opinion of the best judges that the increased acreage of Fall sown and a full average breadth of Spring seeding will bring an average crop, future weather being favorable, and the whole country be ing taken into consideration. There are many sections of the West where wheat is in excellent condition and promises a full crop; yet if some of the prophets were to be believed we should be in some danger of a famine a few months hence. The light stock here and the limited quantity likely to ar rive this month ure calculated to break tbe force of the fall in wheat which now seems to be impending. Corn has declined 2@3c. on increased offerings and a falling off in tbe export demands. Barley is scarce and very firm at $1 55(u}l 57 for prime Canada, with no business of moment. The latest from Chicago says the re turns of stocks in tbe Chicago ware houses present au anomalous condi tion of thiugs. The quantity of grain on storage is not much different from what it was a year ago, though there is considerably more wheat, but a large reduction in other grain. The details compare as follows: 1874. 1875. Wheat, bushels 2,304.500 3.970,200 Corn ~ 3,183,800 2,121,700 Oats 849,4'.i0 532,900 Rye 25,300 5,700 Bailey 128,:00 (il 300 The combined aggregate is 6.001,800 ; bushels, an increase of 200,000 busheis as compared with the same time a year ago. The light quantity of bar ley on the market will surprise most people. The weekly receipts of barley at San Francisco equal the entire stock at Chicago. There are some or ders here from the East for barley, which may be filled if the price should go much lower, though It is too late in the season to expect much trade of that kind. THE WOOL MARKET. In New York the market continues very dull, though toward the close of the week there was a slight increase iv tbe demand. The sales of tbe week chiefly were of California. There ap pears more disposition on tbe part of holders to meet the views of manufac turers, though the change in rates has not been great. New Spring is being received in moderate quantities, but prices realized are somewhat below what dealers were led to expect. It has got to be a very choice lot that will realize 35 cents; most of the sales were made at 30@32 or 33 cents. Fall California has made with a very liberal demaud, and prices continue firm. Both foreign Clothing and Carpet ma terial are quiet, but prices exhibit no change. Sales for the week comprise 89 bales Australian, atsl@s2 cents; 25 do. Cape, private; 30 do. East ludia, at about 15 cents; 181 do Spring Cali fornia, at 29@35 cents; 300 do. Fall do., at 16@23 cents; 125 bags scoured, at •j.st;. 71 cents. The Boston market shows the fol lowing: Transactions in the Wool market have again been quite large, but there is no improvement to notice, and holders are still disposed to close up their stocks as fast as possible. The principal transactions have been in pulled and California. Fine fleeces still move slowly, and holders have to shade a little ou both tine fleeces and Australians, to effect sales; but me dium and combing and delaine fleeces still command very extreme prices. The stock of fine fleeces here is con siderably reduced, and mostly in the hands of one house. Transactions in California have been the largest for a long time, comprising 772,000 lbs. Fall and Spring, at 15@24c. for Fall, and 21@36c. for Spring. The highest price before obtainable for new Spring has been 35c, and this may be considered an outside figure for choice lots. Good average lots will not bring over 28@ 30c. There have been sales of combing and delaine fleeces at 54fV.56e; unwash ed combing and delaine at 37©50 c.; scoured, 53c.@l 05; and super pulled at 35@57ic. Tbe Wool market in San Francisco opened as follows: Choice long. »ft 23@25 c Good shippina 19(a22^e Heavy fre •, V ft_ avails c Burry, $ft 16gl8 c Murder.
