The reserved seats for "Trovatore" are going off rapidly. Tbe Congregational Social last night at Mr. Bent's was a delightful affair. The murderer Vuhle has a name suggestive of a melancholy end. It is pronouueed like the Latin, Vale, Vale. The Governor of Kansas is on his way to California, and will visit Los Angeles. General John Mansfield, formerly of the Army of the Potomac, is stopping at the St. Charles. Mr. J. A. Nelson, freight and ticket olerk at Wilmington, has tendered his resignation, to take effect to-day. Mr. John Rowell, of Providence, R. 1., who has been with us some time, visits the Santa Monica beach to-tlay. Mayor Beaudry examined one drunk yesterday and made him put up for his future sobriety. The Calathumpians will hold a meet ing in a tew days preparatory to a Fourth of July celebration. See the Remington ami Victor sew ing machines at A. M. Janes', 60 Spring street. The Pound-Master will sell this morning at 10 o'clock, at Allen's sta ble on Main street, two gray mares picked up by him. Yesterday was pay day at the depot among the railroad boys. The day before the employees along the line received their pay. In another column Mr. Stevenson offers $10 for the return of a portion of the telescope of a surveyor's transit, and no questions asked. A shooting scrape—People vs. Mc- Donald—was to be tried yesterday by Judge Gray, but other business crowd en it out. A squaw lay In front of the Star of fice last night, and no policeman to offer her shelter. In reply to all in terviewers shesquaw-ked, "all right." Vahle, the murderer, would be a good man to send to Utah, where wo men are plenty and the sudden demise of one or two would not be noticed. The capacity of our four prin cipal hotels, when the present exten sions are finished, will be in the aggre gate 1,000 guests. Biehop Jesse T. Peck, of the Metho dist Episcopal church, is expected by steamer to-day, and will preach in the M. E. Church, Fort street, to-morrow at 11 A. M. and 7} P. M. Mr. Joshua Durrel's artesian well at Florence, only one hundred and thirty feet deep, flows six inches over a seven inch pipe, and is ample to irrigate one hundred and sixty acres. Tne charge of malicious mischief against Mrs. Starkey was dismissed and a charge of abusive language en tered in Judge Gray's Court. The case will come up to-day. The Express says It took the Herald ! two days to find out that it meant Chavez where it said Vasquez. It took tbe Express a great deal longer to find out that Vasquez was dead. A man In Leavenworth, Kansas, re cently dislocated his Jaw blowing his nose, since which time, for prudential reasons, the citizens have avoided tbat kind of exercise, and the town is suf fering from an epidemic of catarrh in consequence. The Downey Courier says it is stated, upon good authority, that many far mers are holding back their corn from shipment and sale, and that there is now In that valley probably not less than fifty or sixty thousand sacks of corn. The murderer Vahle is pursuing the system of most wife-murderers—first killing a poor, confiding, abused wo man, and then making a post-mortem attack on her virtue. Hell is too com fortable a place for such a villain. In another column will be found the advertisement of the President of the School Board for proposals for building two school houses in East Los Angeles and on the East side of Los Angeles river, respectively. We have heard of wife-murderers defending their crime on the ground of the infidelity of their wives, but never before did we hear of one so double-dyed as to attempt to ruin his wife's reputation in two languages, as Vahle has done. Clock repairing a specialty. Mr. A. W. Pratt, a practical clock maker from the Ansonic Clock Manufacturing Co., and late adjuster for the National Clock Co. of San Francisco, has taken the new show window at 36 Spring st., where he will repair clocks in a first class manner. Satisfaction guaran teed. We desire to draw the attention of our readers to the advertisement of A. M. Janes, No. 60 Spring street, who has commenced the sewing machine business on an extensive scale. All first-class machines bought, sold, ex changed or rented on the most favor able terms. The Los Angeles aud Independence Railway is now making good progress. Yesterday the road commenced a suit against Josefa Alaniz de Leloug, Gre gorio Talamantes, Lauriano Talaman tes and Pedro Talamantes, to have the right of way through the Ballona, legally given to the road. The Santa Barbara News publishes the following on tbe 12th instant, which will be news to Susan's brother, if he lives to read it: Leavenworth, May 11th.—Colonel Anthony, who was Postmaster at Leavenworth, is a brother of 3usan B. Anthony. Last night Wm. Eraboy, editor of the Appeal, was shot and fatally wounded by Col. R. D. An thony, editor of the Times. Newspaper quarrels between the two over a mat ter connected with the Typographical Union was the cause. Anthony was arrested and committed to jail. - THE LATE MURDER. Antecedents of the forties <;« ecu the Impelling Oanse— High Character <>l the Deceased—Previous Marital Re lations of the murderer ~ A Hani Record. The wretch who committed the murder in La Ballona Tuesday evening was prompted to the deed by as foul motives as ever actuated the most de based of criminals. The circumstances, as we have them from persons who know the facts, are these: Tuesday, Seflora Guadalupe came to town with her son, Francisco de Figueroa, a youth of 18 years, to look after certain per sonal effects carried away in a surrep titious manner by her husband, John Vahle. Soon after arriving in town, Vahle, with the stolen articles, was found on Main Street, when Seflora Guadalupe asked an explanation for such conduct, and requested the cuU prit to return with the goods to her ranch. Vahle replied by saying that he would do so, and when there would go to work. He then requested her to dismiss her son, Francisco, ami return with him. To this she objected, but they finally met together at Seflora Guadalupe's ranch in the evening, and the result of tbat meeting was the perpetrating of that most inhuman, cold-blooded wife murder. One of the causes, it is said, which actuated the murder was, that a few days ago he demanded of his mother in-law three hundred dollars, which was refused. The villain, Vahle, from that time grew sulky, and his ill hu mor increased till it resulted in the act of theft to which allusion has already been made, and finally to that most heinous of all crimes, murder. The intentions of Vahle when he married the widow Seflora G. Figueroa, about ten months ago, (who is the mother of live children, one of whom is grown), was to get possession of her property. So sure was he of this that he required a notary to be present when the maniage ceremony was per formed, in order that the transfer of his wife's property might be made over at once inlo his hands. This transfer, however, was never made, although Wahle often boasted to per sons in town that he owned in his own name a large ranch, and contracted debts with several merchants accord ingly, who accepted bis statements as the truth, and have thus been victim ized to the extent of several "bad bills." As to the life of Vahle—who is about 40 years of age—prior to his marriage with Sefiora Guadaloupe, who was nearly 50 when murdered, we know but little. But if credence to report be given he was married once before, and his unkind treatment of his first wife caused her untimely death. Concern ing this we have no authentic proof, but that which precedes this state ment is vouched for, and it is to be hoped that a speedy trial be given him, and that he pay the penalty, in order that society may be rid of one whose hand was too cowardly to take good aim at his own head, though in the despair of a defeated fortune hun ter and robber he could send a bullet from the same pistol through the heart of his deceived wife. The Barbed Wire Fence. Fences are generally quite expensive and frequently useless for the purpose intended. Among the recent inven tions for farmers' use is the barbed wire fence, for which Mr. J. W. Stump of this city is agent. During its exhi bition at the Grange store, it was ex amined by hundreds of farmers, who pronounced it the fence of the period. With cheapness, it combines durabi lity, making it the most desirable fence ever presented to the public. It will withstand the charge of a drove of Texas steers, aud give them such a reception that they will never make a second attempt. Any farmer can put it up, and when once up, it needs no repairs. As compared with other fences, it is cheaper, more durable aud more easily put up. For further in formation, apply to Mr. J. W. Stump, or at the Grange store. Sudden Death. Dr. Graham, a hydropathic physi cian who has been for some time stop ping at the Pacific Hotel, San Diego, died very suddenly Thursday night from hemorrhage of the lungs. It seems that the Dr. had been suffering from slight hemorrhage for a number of days, and Thursday evening it set In with renewed violence, and before medical assistance could be obtained he bled to death. Dr. Stockton made a post-mortem examination this morn ing, and found that hemorrhage pro ceeded from the left lung. We are under obligations to Mr. Louis Lewin for a fine gold pen of the manufacture of Aikin, Lambert & Co., presented to us yesterday. The pen is all that could be desired by the most fastidious writer, having the softness of touch characteristic of the gold, combined with the delicate stroke of the finest manufacture of steel. Mr. Lewin's assortment ranges from the heavy bank pen to the lady's size, and includes the celebrated oblique style so highly esteemed by fine penmen. Mr. Lewin has our hearty thanks for bis appropriate present; we shall re member him as long as we keep it, and shall keep it as long as we live. The Presbyterians in this city desire us to tender their sincere thanks to Prof. Havell aud each of the members of the Los ADgeles Choral Society for the very beautiful aud appropriate concert given in aid of the building fund of the church on the evening of the 12th inst. Much gratitude is felt towards those ladies aud gentlemen, not members of the ohurch, who con tributed liberally towards, and person ally assisted in, the entertainment given on Thursday evening last. To-day will probably be the last chance to purchase lots in the Brooks Tract at auction. The sale will take place at the auction rooms of Jones & Noyes at 12 o'clock. The last auction averaged the lots at $50 each, and the remaining lots will be closed out to day to the highest bidder. The lots are 60x150 feet, and terms half cash and half in six months without inter est. Tbe regular annual convocation of the antique and horrible order of CaU thumpians will take place to-night, at eight o'clock sharp, at tbe office of Medico Duulap. Non-attending mem bers will be subject to all the pains and penalties prescribed in the Scarlet Code. Wherefore be prompt and vigi lant. So reads the edict, as we are informed by the registering secretary. [Written for the Herald.] GRANDMOTHER. BY W. HAZF.LTINK. • ————— How queer it seems to think that she Was once a little miss like me, And went to school in Jaunty curls, And laughed and played like othsr girls. How odd to guess that she could run As wo girls do, and have such fun; And shout, and scream, and plague the boys, And hide away their tops and toys. And droll It sounds to hear her tell When she was but a " gal," and dwell With kludling eye, on callow themes, When life was full of suuuy dreams. The dear old face Is wrinkled now; The dews of eve are on her brow; Hhe cannot do as once she could, Yet we can love her Just as good. And If, when I am old and gray, And gathering shadows dim the wny, Kind helping hands I then would llnd, To her I must be ever kind. Po this shall be my daily care; And when I lisp my evening prayer, I Ml pray the Lord her soul to take. If she should die before I wake. •' 1 swear tbe kisses Of other misses Are third-rato blisses Compared lo Cis's." What nonsense this is! Hay all the other misses. Letter from Orange. ' Editor Hkkald. — Orange still maintains its position as one of the most progressive of any of the farms of .Southern California. At present it is a scene of great activity. New buildings are going up in all directions, and an increased number of orchards and vineyards are receiving the at tention of the people. The social ele ments are by no means neglected. Last Saturday we had the essential "spell of spellin'." The occasion was very interesting, and the conflict was maintained by an exceptionally good class of spellers. The ranks were at last thinned out, till only two were left, Miss Mary Squires aod Mr. Fur long. They seemed very equally matched and tbe fight promised to last all night. By good fortune, however, the umpires made a mistake and deci ded against Mr. Furlong's spelling of the word of the "Orchestra." This left Miss Squires the victor, and she received the prize, a handsome book, among the congratulations of her friends. On Sunday the new M. E. church was dedicated, Rev. Dr. Jewell, of San Francisco, preaching both morning and evening. The occasion was very interesting and the interest of the peo ple was fitly manifested by raising in about fifteen minutes the five hun dred dollars necessary to complete the payment for the beautiful newcnurch. On Tuesday many of our citizens joined in a pic-nic to Newport Land ing. If the harbor facilities of this place are only equal to its pic-nicking qualities, I wish no stock. However, the party was not one to cry for amusement, and the day passed quite pleasantly in croquet, boat-riding, walks on the hills, etc. Tuesday evening saw the installa tion of the new officers ofthe I. O. 'J. T.| and a temperance lecture by Rev. Mr. Knighten, now of Ventura. And so we go, work aud play. We earn our pleasure and then enjoy it to the full. A mysterious building is being erected in the centre Of the place. No one seems to know its purpose, but all forebode that it is a saloon. There is a decided sentiment against this. We ail hope against it. W. Travelers' Home. Arrivals yesterday from San Bernar dino by Arizona Line: Mrs Shaffer, A M Young, J C Lemon.
