One of the most effective steps that could be taken toward the breaking up of the land monopoly which ex ists in the San Joaquin Valley and other portions of the State, would bo the inauguration of a general or State system of irrigation. If the revenue necessary to cai ry out the scheme is raised from the land benefited, the as sessment on the large tracts now held by men who will neither cultivate them nor permit others to do so, will be so heavy that tbey will soon realize the necessity for realizing from their lands something more than the mere rental for sheep range, ln the prepa ration of a bill looking to the passage of an irrigation law, this important consideration should be kept steadily in view. The Railroad Prospect. In our local columns will be found a paragraph from the Sail Francisco almost confirms tbe views of the Herald expressed some weeks since, that the Los Angeles and Inde pendence Railroad would sortn form a part of a trans-continental road which would make this city its Western ter minus. It appears that Jay Gould, who now has a heavy interest is the Union Pacific road, isanxious-to effect direct railroad communication with this part of the coast, and to that end he is consulting with Senator Jones on the practicability of connecting the road from this city with the Utah Central. If this enterprise is carried out it will be productive of grand re sults to this part of the State. The road will pass through a rich mineral section, and through extensive coal fields. It will cause the immediate development of these gold and silver mines, and bring into market the pro duct of the coal fields. The through road will be worth millions of dollars annually to Southern California. Street Opening. We fully endorse an article in a late number of the Express on opening the streets. There are a number of streets in the city which must be opened and there are several others that need straightening. The doing of this work is but a question of time, and there is uo time like the present for doing what ought to be done. It will cost citizens and city less to open and straighten streets now than here after. Property is rapidly increasing in value and the longer the work is put off the greater the cost and the greater the necessity. The obstruc tions in Los Augeles street should be removed at once and intersecting streets with Main and San Pedro streets and with other streets running parallel with these are becoming so necessary that their opening cannot be much longer delayed. We desire to impress it. upon the Council that these improvements can be made at less cost now than hereafter. In San Francisco the custom is to assess the property enhanced in value by the opening of new streets to pay for the private property used in the opening. This plan may be adopted here to a great extent and the expense to the city thus greatly reduced. If the city would keep pace in appearance with her growth and prosperity, she must make straight streets of her crooked by-ways anil open the thor oughfares needed for the prosecution of Iter commercial pursuits. Insult to Immigrants. We presume that if the immigrants now coming into this State were told that they were a different class of peo ple from those who came here in '49; that they were wanting in the energy, enterprise aud industry which char acterized the early settlers, they would deny the imputation and assert them selves the equal iv manhood and in dustry of any who have preceded them. We imagine that the people coming here now are coming on their own responsibility and expect to rely on their own means and efforts for the support of themselves and families. Yet, such does not seem to be the con clusion of many of California's people and journals. We hear of prepara tions for the immigrants and in one or two instances charitable individu als have suggested the establishment of soup houses at which the impecun ious Immigrant might obtain the means to keep soul and body together without money and without price. However well these propositions may be meant, we cannot but regard them as libels on our State and insults to the men and women seeking homes on the Pacific coast. Bureaus of in formation, circulars, pamphlets and other means for enabling the new comer to inform himself as to the most desirable place to locate, are all very well and will serve a good purpose, but the assumption that immigrants are paupers, beggers and alms-takers, is neither creditable to those now here nor those on their way here. We do not believe that many of tbe immi grants now coming to California will patronize free soup houses, and we hope they are not a class who will thank us for extending them such liberal, though thin, hospitality. The State will not be benefited by the in flux of such people, and should they come, we had much rather subscribe to a fund to send them back to the place from whence they came, than to induce them to remain by the dispen sation of free soup. Disseminate Information. In view of the fact that thousands of persons in the East are now seek ing information relative to the soil and climate of California, for the pur pose of definitely determining whether they shall or shall not seek homes there, and in order to controvert the misrepresentations of Southern Cali fornia which the San Francisco and Sacramento papers seem determined to keep before their readers, we have a proposition to make to our Chamber of Commerce aud to those of our citi zens interested iv drawing to this part of the State a desirable class of immi gration. It is that they adopt some means for placing in the hatids of in tended immigrants copies of the local papers. The weekly Issues of the Herald and of the other papers pub lished in this city contain a vast amount of reliable Information con cerning Southern California, of the character which persons who contem plate coming to this State most desire. Fourteen months ago the Herald commenced the work of describing Los Angeles Valley—its soil, climate, resources, its preseut condition and future prospects. We have steadily applied ourselves to the task up to the present time, and as a result of our labor we point to the hundreds of fam ilies now residents of this valley who testify that they were induced to come here through information obtained from the columns of the Weekly Herald. This source of information may be greatly enlarged by the Chamber of Commerce and wealthy individuals ordering and sending East our weekly papers in larger numbers than are sent from the offices of pub lication. The plan is adopted in the middle portions of the State and as the papers sent from there contain nothing favorable of Southern Califor nia, it behooves our people to meet those misrepresentations with the facts, the evidence of which is found in our own papers. Los Angeles Choral Society. Editor Herald: For one, I very much regret that so few of our citi zens were present at the concert given last week by this society, ami also that such brief aud unsatisfactory re ports were published by the daily pa pers. Many of the most distinguished musicians of this city have voluntar ily associated themselves together under the leadership of Prof. Havell, not only for musical improvement, but for the purpose of elevating the standard of musical entertainments and of the public taste. The necessity for sucli an organization has long been felt, and this effort to supply the want is worthy the highest commendation. The members of the Choral Society are all personally and favorably known in our city as ladiesand gentle men of real worth, of fine musical taste and eminent artistic ability, cer tainly not second to any of the trav eling troupes which have drawn crowded houses during the past Win ter. After a few weeks careful prepa tion, a programme of real interest was prepared. The selections were in every instance adapted to a cultivated popular taste and consisted of solos, duetts, quartettes and choruses—a choice variety. Every part was well sustained. Probably no musical en tertainment ever given iv our city displayed finer musical talent, greater correctness of execution or a higher degree of cultivation The expression of sentiment was natural and forcible. This was especially apparent in the solos sung by Mrs. Stoneman and Miss Edelman. As a musical entertain ment, this first concert was a success in the highest and truest sense. It was a benefit given in and of one of our churches and thus evinced a spirit of noble liberality and generous be nevolence worthy the highest praise. As it is the province of music to cast a refining and elevating influence over tbe soul, this manifestation of real charity struck a cord of deeper har mony than ever vibrated from lute or harp. It is to be hoped that the mem bers of the Choral Society will take courage and persevere in their very laudable undertaking and that by their superior skill and earnest efforts they will overcome all indifference ana soon enjoy, as they deserve, the respect, confidence and patronage of the community. \V. Those Pottaville Miners. Pottsvillk, Pa., May 18th.—Last alght, at New Kirk colliery, near Tamauquad, as some workmen were returning from the mine, they were attacked by twenty-five mcu,stoned and ■red upon. John Shirley was shot and wound ed in tne head. A man named Ochman was badly hurt hy the stones. Others were in jured. The trouble was occasioned by these men resuming work in the mines. A Breeze in New Hampshire. Concoro, N. H., May 18th.—The Executive Committee of the Republican State Commit tee are In session at Eagle hotel, with closed doors. Prominent Republicans from all parts of tho State arc ln attendance. They report that the Republicans throughout the entire State are aroused on the Senatorial Issue of usurpation of power by a co-ordinate branch of the government. The Hon. Daulel Chls ley, of Dover, one of the oldest and best law yers in the State, says that he has never been consulted by Governor Weston. His opinion is that the action of tbe Governor on tbe Sen atorial question Is unconstitutional and with out precedent. The Feeling in Whisky. Chicago, May 18th.—This afternoon tho distillers were surprised by a new move on the part of tbe Government, which may bo very embarrassing to them. W. 8. Goldson, B. F. Phlpot, Richard H. Watson, Frank A. Eastman and Isaac Butlerberser were arrest ed on a warrant charging them with conspi racy to defraud the Government. All of them gave bonds and will be duly examined by Commissioner Hayne to-morrow. European Crop Prospect. London. May 18th,—The Mark Lane Bbcprwu says tbat there has been a marked Improve ment In the temperature of the past week, reaching tbe highest point attained ln the summer, and altering the face ofthe country. This, coming on a dull market, has made business still more difficult. Had high prices been paid, a smart decline would have fol lowed; but at present there is no move for an abatement. All over Europe a beneficial change has been felt, but the markets are lit tle altered, prices being perhaps a shilling lower. San Francisco Items. San Francisco, May 18th.—A German, J. H. Flßhback, was fount! dead thin morning In tbe basement of California Market, having committed suicide by strangulation. He had been employed hy John R. Stege A Co. an collector. On Wednesday last Stege found his accounts apparently fraudulent and called him to account for it. Fishback left and bud not been seeu since, until he was found dead this morning. Stege thinks he must have committed suicide shortly after tbo conversation with him. Deceased was a single man and aged about IS years. The pilot-boat J. C. Cousins went ashore on South Reach, abreast the Ocean-side House, about 3 o'clock this morning, und will proba bly prove a total wreck. Thore were nine I'crsonson board, all or whom got ashore. The cause of the rtlsaster Is somewhat myste rious, as the night wus clear. It is supposed thai the watch on deck went to sleep. A man named John Barrett was arrested to day for attempting to bum Long Bridge, over Mission Bay. The bridge was Bred on the morning oi the 13th nit., but was extinguish ed. Another attempt was made about five o'clock this morning, but was »iso discovered before much dxinuge was done. Barrett made a de*peiulo resistance against the officers, getting away several times before the prison was renched. Sympathy for Hutchings.

DI.S. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OFCAL.,> Los ANOELES, May 15, 1875. J At the regular mouthly meeting of this So ciety, held in this city on the 3d of April, 1875, and a quorum being present, the following resolution was offered by Dr. John S. Griffin and unanimously adopted: Jtesofrorf. That Mai. Ben. C. Truman, Hon. H. K. S.O'Melveny and Hon. F. A. MoDougall do constitute aeominlttee with full powerand authority to act ln all matters with direct ref erence to raising the capital stock of the Southern District Agricultural Society from 150,000 to 860,0i0, and from 000 shares to t)00 shares in a legal manner. And that said Cor'inittee oause to be pub lished a legal notice to the effect that on a cer tain day, at a stockholders' meeting of this Society said proposition will be submitted to the members of this Society; and further, That said Committee do ascertain the in debtedness of this Society, and tlx the price of the unsold stock and report the same at the next regular meeting ofthe Society. At tho next meeting of the Society, held in Los Angeles on the Bth day of May, 1875, a quorum being present, the following report of the above-named Commlttoo was read and unanimously adopted: To tho President and Directors and Stockhold ers of the Southern District Agricultural Society of Calilornls: The undersigned Committee, to whom was referred the subject of Increasing the stock of the corporation and ascertalng the debts of said corporation required to be paid as soon as practicable, respectfully reports that by a vote of the stockholders at t regular meeting ofthe Society, the same in theiropinlon may be legully done. That upon examination of the Articles of Incorporation on file in the Clerk's oflice, as well as upon reading and examining the Con stitution and By-Laws of the Society, there is no particular sum of money limited or speci fied as capital stock of said corporation; and the only reference mudc to l hat subject is sim ply a rosolution adopted by the Society and recorded among its proceedings. We are, therefore, ofthe opinion that no le ?:al obstacle exists lo prevent this Society rom Increasing the capital stock of said Soci ety from five hundred shares to six hundred shares, as indicated in your late resolution in the appointment ol this Committee. Upon the report of the Secretary of tbis compar and corporation, which we believe to be relia ble and correct, we report as the Indebtedness which it is necessary to take steps to provide means for the early and prompt payment, to amount to the sum of about. 810,000', and to ac complish that object consistent with the prin ciples indicated In the resolution of the So ciety by which we were appointed, we re spectfully submit the followfagresolution, to wit: First—That the eapiial stock of said South ern District Agricultural society be, and the same is, hereby increased from $50,000 to the sum of $60,000, and that the samo be divided Into shares of one hundred dollars each, and that the aggregate number of shares of said stock is hereby fixed at tbe number of six hundred instead of five hnndred shares, as heretofore authorized.

And such certificates ofsharesof stock shall be held by the respective holders as paid-up stock in full, and shall so express on the face ot tbe certificates of stock so issued, and in no case shall he be liable to pay assessments. Third—That in case any stockholder In s dd Society now • wnlng shares of stock, declines to receive and accept an equa! number of shares of the additional stock to the shares of stock now held and owned by him or her, la that even th sharM of additional stock so remaining un; ■ "pted by such shareholder ahull be sold lv • | irate shares to any stock holder who will bid ihe highest price therefor, but no bid hall be accepted of a less sum than $85 per share, ihe sale to be, after due notice, at public auction.
