This is a much easier route, and by it the time to Santa Barbara will be reduced about two hours. In about ten days the compa ny propose to put on a line of four horse wagons between Anaheim and San Diego. The wagons have already been ordered, and they should arrive here by the time indicated above. A saving of two hours, by tbis new ar rangement, will also be effected be tween Los Angeles and San Diego. The Los Angeles and Independence Railway. We find the following in the San Francisco Post of the 17th, which, if true, puts Los Angeles on the direct route of the Union Pacific Railroad to the East: "Col. Crawford, Chief Engi neer, and James A. Pritchard, Secre tary of the Los Angeles and Inde pendence Railroad, sail to-morrow in the Orizaba for Los Angeles, to push forward the work of construction. This road is one of the most important enterprises ever projected in thisStatej Senators Jones aud Stewart are deter mined to carry it through at the ear* liest day possible, not only for the benefit of their mining Interests at Panamint, but also in the hope of ef fecting a combination by which a di-. rect rail route may be opened through to Ogden, independent of the Central" Pacific. Jay Gould and Senator Jones* have been in close consultation re cently on the subject and it Is more than likely that something may come of it, as Mr. Gould is particularly de sirous to reach the Pacific coast with out coming over Stanford's line. The idea proposed is to extend tho Los An geles and Independence Railroad from Independence, the present projected terminus, through the Southern part of Nevada, striking Pioche and other important mining camps, and tapping the Utah Central Railroad at or near Beaver, Southern Utah. Mr. Pritch ard says there are vast coal beds at different points ou the projected route which would prove amine of wealth could they be opened up and their treasures brought to market. Mr. Jones will be here in about two weeks, when work on the Los Augeles road will be driven forward in earnest." " II Trovatore." Last night a large and critical au dience witnessed "II Trovatore" at Turn-Verein Hall, and never has an opera been received in Los Angeics with greater applause. The profes sionals of Sig. Marra's troupe and the volunteers—Sig. Fernandez, Messrs. Falkenau, Arevalo and Knell, and the Turn-Verein chorus—performed their respective parts well and were received with enthusiastic encores. The cos tumes were elegant and all the other stage appointments complete. The solos of "II Trovatore," which have a world-wide reputation among musi cians, were admirably rendered, and the choruses given with great effect. The representation was a grand suc cess, showing to advantage the musi cal ability of Big. Marra's troupe and pleasing the large audience. To-mor iow night the opera will be again pre sented and we hope to see a full house. IRRIGATION. Tiie Danger of Improper Legislation— Tbe Work Should be Don* by Pri vate Eulerprlae. To the Editor of the Chronicle: sib: i he great interest evinced in your in teresting articles on the sulijectof Irrigation. Induces me to offer a few remarks. Tho great importance of irrigation to the State is ad mitted by every one. The folly of allowing our large, rivers to run idly to tbe ses, when they might be utilized on the land, Is also quite apparent, it Is roughly estimuted that ten mllllous of gallons per secoud is the aver age discbarge ofthe Sacramenio audSan Joar quin rivers, and every gallon of this water In the spring will probably Insure a pound of grain, If distributed over tne plains in a Judi cious manner. On this estimate the loss Is too great to bo figured up. Hero there are only two ways to stop this waste and of in augurating a system of lrrlgatiou-by the State, or by p.lvate corporations. If the State takos hold of It, a grand bureau,of cor ruption will be immediately instituted. Tax ation tor the purpose would be unconstitu tional, and onerous u>>on those who have no Interest in agriculture. Infact.it would be just as proper to issue State bonds for the construction of mining ditches; aud, besides, if they were issued, tiie issue being unconsti tutional, no capitalist would buy them. At t lie last session ofthe Legislature a bill was tntroduced empowering Commissioners to Usuo bonds on irrigation districts, payments lo bo secured by property in tbo district. These would have been unconstitutionally issued, because the Legislature cannot dele gate thepower of taxation to Commissioners; and, besides, if I have the misfortune to own property within the district, why, if I do not need or want water, should I be taxed to ena ble Jones to Irrigate his land 7 Theonly true method, therefore, Is u> encourage private en terprise by wise legislation, liberally confirm ing, amending and ratifying existing laws. The bugaboo of monopoly is all moonshine. Give any company undoubted right to take water out of any river—the first approprlator t»» be the first In right—and you will soon see all the rivers brought out upon the plains. The Legislature might reserve the right to regulute the rates on petition of land owners. It will lake at least $2,0O",000 to divert either tho Merced or the San Joaquin on to the plains If It were done, lunds now practically valueless would Immediately advance from S5 to $20 per aore. Is itexpected that the capi talist who risks his money in such an enter prise, will furnish tho water for nothing, after all his expenditure? This can hardly be ex pected by sensible people, although " the water and the air of heaven are free," as some buncombe orator announced in the last can vass when denouncing the "bloated monopo lists," who had] presumed to divert "God's water from the everlasting hills," etc. If any legislation Is expedient or necessary, let it be such as will authorize a bonus of say $5,000, to Ik paid to tiie first company that shall di vert a certain amount of water from any river or luke for Irrigating purposes. Q. E. D. Editor Herald: The San Fran cisco Chronicle of the loth instant contains the above correspondence, which must be reproduced in order that it may be fairly noticed. The subject treated Is of primary impor tance and worthy tbe consideration of our great minds. An English gentle man visiting this coast forty years ago, stated tbat California could com fortably maintain 35,000,000 of people. I believe he was quite moderate, for Los Angeles county can support 1,000,000 and not be crowded. It will be the question of irrigation that will solve and settle the problem. There is little that passes to us from the classic days of Rome on the sub ject of irrigation, but there is suffi cient to show us that the Romans fully understood its importance. The Italian lawyers who commenced to write and compile on the subject in the tenth century are caudid enough to state that what they put together is but fragmentary laws and traditionary customß, running back to prehistoric times. Verri, who is considered an exact historian, places the first efforts on the compilations on this subject as com mencing in the beginning of the 10th century. We surely are not traveliim in the dark on this subject. We have the intelligence of eight centuries to guide us, and the best engineering minds to direct us — the contrast spread open to us of irrigated and non-irrigated lunds, and their capabil ities to support a happy and thriving people. We simply look at the con dition of Hpain when her water was utilized by the Moors for irrigation, and now, in the 19th century. Let us look at Verrona to-day and see amidst its vicissitudes of political turpitude the frugality and happiness of her people and her capacity to maintain a population to the square mile. In those states the government main tains the sovereignty of every running drop of water, and Dave wise laws to curb the selfishness of individuals and corporations. Happily I consider that we are still the owners ot the waters of the State by virtue of our inheri tance from Spain, and we should wisely keep the control. There is no necessity of issuing bonds by the State, nor creating a vast State ex penditure. The people have a right to ask that the State assume control of her waters, and rauke the Surveyor General her engineer-in-chief to lay off every river as a district, with rite natural subdivisions, coiitioied by lo cal Boards of Commissioners; to fix what shall be an irrigating head, which has as yet puzzled out civiliza tion; to secure the right of way in a positive but equitable manner.as they have done in Italy, putting a stop to the selfishness of humanity iv a fixed but decisive manner. Partial evil will have to give way to universal good, and the wealth of the State will have to be taken into consideration by the merchant, banker, artizan and la borer. The doctrine of Q. E. D. will not hold good. The iuitials remind mo of those used by our Spanish friends, which unabbreviated mean, "Que en paz desconse." I hope his ideas, although honestly put forth, will rest in peace. Some few of the Italian States granted rights to barons, nobles and corporations to take out the waters of the rivers and sell them to cultiva tors, with certain restrictions. An unhappy thing, as is well set forth by an English commissioner who exam ined the subject preparatory to fixing up a code for the East India syßtem. Our State must retain the water, and never permit her people to be placed at the mercy of any corporation. J. G. D. SAN DIEGO ITEMS. At last accounts the condition of Mrs. Gatewood was not improved. We hear that Under Sheriff Frank Miller is in tbe mountains near Julian on the trail of an Indian who com mitted a murder at Carrise, on the Desert, eleven years since and broke jail at Old Town shortly after his ar rest. He lias lately been seen around Julian, aud word was sent the officers here, who "went for" him. Our in formant says Miller came upon the Indian on Sunday, and that the abo rigine took to his heels, whereupon Miller took a crack at him with a re volver, hitting him in the shoulder. A posse Is now in pursuit.— Union. The Bazaar, corner of Main and Re quena streets, has just received an Im mense stock of new goods, consisting of clothing, dry goods, boots, shoes, hats, etc., which they will sell at bot tom prices.
