The citizens interested in tbe Com mittee of Safety held no public meet ing last night. The organization is proceeding quietly. Colonel Ord and Lieut. Birmi, of the Wheeler Exploring Exploring Expe dition, will be here in a few days. Tbe main camp will be established here. The high state of morality in Los Angeles was apparent yesterday morn ing when Mayor Beaudry called in vain for criminals. On the return of the Marra Troupe from Santa Barbara,we understand the citizens of Los Angeles will tender Sig. Marra a benefit. It will be a de served testimonial. James A. Pritchard, Secretary of the Los Angeles and Independence Rail way, left Los Angeles yesterday morning at three o'clock for Kern county. The Janissaries of Light are about to organize the Grand Temple of Light, and next Friday evening Temple No. 1 will elect delegates to that supreme organization. Sheriff Rowland is in luck. He re joices in the advent of a boy, who dates his arrival in semi-tropical Cali fornia on May 24th at 2P. M. He is not yet placed on the Great Register. The lecture of Mr. Kilpatrick this evening at Good Templars' Hall will be a fine effort and will undoubtedly do great good to the cause. There should be a large attendance. We had a call last evening from Mr. J. I). Witherell of Michigan, who is traveling through California looking after sewing machine interests. He expresses himself well pleased with the country. Visitors to Santa Monica should patronize J. M. Donaldson. He is an old stager and knows the road. His conveyance is one of the best ever used in this county. Put yourself in his charge. The case of the People vs. T. S. Hall and H. Beckley, charged with taking up the water pipes of F. S. Randall in Tejunga Cafion, was ended yesterday morning before Judge Gray, iv a jury verdict of guilty. Sentence will be given this morning. The map of Mr. Bruning's tract, cor ner of Main and Pico streets, was filed for record yesterday. It is valuable ground and has been subdivided into building lots. We predict that Brun ing's Subdivision will become popular with land-buyers. A photograph was received yester day by Starbuck & Butler, from one of the Western States, showing a view of a new hotel that cost $12,000. The owner offered to exchange it for $3,000 worth of property here. No takers, or encouragement returned. Sam Prager does not permit any one to have finer goods, a greater variety, nor to sell them at a lower price thau himself. His fine emporium, corner of Main and Commercial streets, is crowded with goods and purchasers. Go and see how it is yourself. If the young man who lost bis money on Monday, recovered it by go ing to the Herald office, went out for five dollars change, and forgot to re turn does not send the money, we will publish his name and a full account of his sneaking conduct. The prismoidal railway will have a public trial this afternoon about three o'clock, near the new depot, under the direction of E. J. Clayton, Chief En gineer. It will probably be in work ing order earlier lv the day, but the formal trial will not be given until 3 P. M. Vivian and a number of others in this city will give an entertainment for the benefit of the Orange Library at Orange on Thursday evening next. Madame Muse, pianist; Profs. Fischer and Myers, violinists; Prof. Arevalo, guitarist, and Mr. Fischer, the popular tenor, have volunteered their servics for the occasion. This is a strong ar ray of talent, und a first-class enter tainment is certain. Vivian isa whole company of himself, and when so well supported as he will be on this occa sion a rich treat may be anticipated. A negro and an Indian were arrested yesterday afternoon on Commercial street for fighting, and committed to jail. They will take an appeal this morning from the Marshal's jurisdic tion to the Mayor's Court. It is sug gested to send them to the Chain-gang for twenty days, because they showed such poor pugilistic ability. The proprietors of the St. Charles complain that they cannot accommo date the crowd of customers demand ing entertainment of them. This is the good luck that attends successful hotel keepers. The traveling public appreciate good hosts, toence the popu larity of the St. Charles. We would suggest to the owners the addition of fifty moms. The School Examination. The examinations commenced yes terday morning at 9 o'clock. In the High School the Juniors were exam ined in algebra and physiology by Miss Hawks and in arithmetic by Dr. Lucky. In physiology the class used Brock's elegant plaster castSiby which they explained minutely all the im portant points of the body. The reci tation was thorough and interesting, pleasing to the visitors and gratifying to the teachers. This closed the examinations in the High School, as the Senior and Middla classes were examined on Monday. The examination of Miss Bengough's and Mr. Kimball's classes commenced at the same time aud were continued all day. Miss Palmer's class com menced its examination at 1 o'clock. The proficiency was quite surprising, the tests employed being of the most trying character and receiving satis factory solution. Quite a large number of visitors were present and evinced great inter est iv the progress of the examination. To many it was an intellectual sur prise, and they left the school highly impressed with the success of our public school system and with a flat tering opinion of Dr. Lucky's superin tendency. We again urge our citizens to attend the examinations. Go early and encourage teachers aud scholars by your presence. This morning's programme is highly attractive.* Read it aud attend. WEDNESDAY, 26TH. Forenoon—Mr. Saxe's class, First Grade, Intermediate. Miss Bixby's class, Second Grade, Intermediate. Miss Porter's class, Alameda street. Afternoon—Miss Casad's class, Sec ond Grade, Intermediate. Miss Russell's class, First Grade, Primary. Miss Lucky's class, Fourth Grade, Primary. Mrs. Onstott's class, Sau Pedro street. Street Railway. Editor Herald: In yesterday's Express, in an article ou the extension of the Spring and Sixth Street Rail road track to-the upper depot, occurs the following statement: "It seems that certain parties connected with the East Los Angeles and San Pedro Street Railroad, a pristnoidal street railroad, are theonesfrom whom these objections emanated, and that they have used aud are using all the means in their power to prevent the proposed extension, and have gone so far as to cast slurs and insinuations against the Council." I wish to say the state ment, so far as it relates to the Direct ors of the East Los Angeles Street Railroad, that neither as Directors nor as individuals is the statement true, either as to their own action or any one on their behalf. R. M. WIDNEY, President East Los Angeles aud San Pedro Street R. R. Co. Santa Gertrudes Lands. The sale of the lands of the Santa Gertrudes Land Association takes place on the rancho this day, the 26th. A special train has been engaged to convey customers and those desiring to see the rancho free; leaving here at 9:15 o'clock sharp. Carriages will convey passengers from the Norwalk Station to tbe lands and a lunch will be provided for all. The Exodus from Minnesota. We find the following in the Santa Barbara Index: We are pleased to learn that Judge Frank Beebe of Minneapolis, Henne- Em county, Minnesota, has made up is mind to make Santa Barbara his future home. Judge Beebe was one of the pioneers in the Northwest and did his share to build up the splendid city of Minneapolis. The Winters there are too cold and too long, and he seeks the Eden of Santa Barbara for com fort and the enjoyment of life. Mrs. Judge Beebe has already arrived aud is the guest of the family of Mr. Chas. F. Lucas, formerly of Minneapolis, who is here, beckoning his old friends from out the snowbanks of the North west. We venture to say' Judge Beebe will be living in Los Angeles shortly after his arrival in California. Santa Bar bara is a nice place, but Los Angeles leads in business activity. Judge Beebe will illustrate the old doggerel: How tlotu tlie busy Bee-be Improve each shining hour. The following gush we find in the San BernardinoGuardico»:"We hearti ly wish the beautiful bride and the genial and gentlemanly bridegroom all the felicity possible to earthly lov ers. That their honeymoon may ex tend through life, their domestic horl aon always shine brilliantly in young lover's .refulgent rays; their two lives milt in one, like twosuubeams unit ing." The way that editor throws beautiful, genial, felicity, honeymoon, domestic horizon, young lovers' reful gent rays, sunbeams and other red-hot phrases, is equal to a meteoric shower. His wish that " their two lives may milt into one, like two sunbeams uniting," could only originate in the mind of an editor sweltering at 110 in the shade. If the Guardian had got this off a tew weeks ago, be would have certainly been summoned us a witness in tne Beecher case. The Brooklyn domestic horizon has al ways been shining in refulgent rays. That's what the jury's trying to find out. Tbe 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. Call and examine their stock. nil A LETTER FROM FRIGID MICHIGAN The History or California Millet-Its Origin in tbe Egyptian Catacombs —Icebergs In the Lakes—Frost and Ice on May I4tb lv Michigan—Great lininlaratlon Coming. Wehave received the following let ter from Menomonee, Michigan, dated May 15th, which shows the contrast between California and Michigan in a striking manner: Editor Herald: I saw recently in a number of the Herald, or in a pamphlet sent out fron* your office, an allusion to millet as a production of your couDty. The thouglit struck me to inquire whether tbe millet alluded to was the true millet, or whether it was the Egyptian corn—which is a species of millet. The Egyptian corn or millet was first sent by me to Cali fornia in 1866 or 1855. This corn was found rolled up in the hand of an Egyptian mummy; taken out of a cat acomb where it had probably lain for thousands of years. It was' brought home by some persons residing in Massachusetts who had been travel- iug in Egypt. I was in California in 1850-51, and while there was very favorably im pressed with the great agricultural ca pacity of the fertile valleys and river bottoms of that State. Other agri culture had made but little progress there. On my return to Illinois, my home at that time, and the next year after my return I made a visit to the East, and while visiting in Lowell, Mass., I made the acquaintance of a young lady, a relative of the persons who brought home t.is seed, and who presented me with a few kernels of it, which I took to Illinois with me and planted in my garden, where it grew aud produced well. Ttuj growth and yield of grain from those seeds brought to mind the rich valleys of California, and led me to think that this seed would yield abundantly and misrht become valuable as a crop to the vast population that I then foresaw would some day inhabit those fertile valleys, some of them so much like the valley of the Nile, where this grain had been grown for how many thousand years I do not know and would hardly dare to guess, and which grain was proba bly the same that the children of Is rael, in their times of direful famine, went down into Egypt to buy. I knew no person then who was engaged in agricultural pursuits in California, as my time had been mostly spent in the mountains, where gold was the only crop sought to be raised, and having no better method open to me to intro duce it into California, I prepared a small package of the seed and sent it to the editor of the Alfa California, at San Francisco. Know ing that he felt a lively interest in promoting tlie prosperity of Califor nia, 1 requested him to give it to some agricultural friends of his who would cultivate it and test itsadaptability to the soil and climate of California, and I have since seen by newspapers that be did so and that in some parts of California it has become au abundant crop. This grain may bo called either corn or millet. It resembles in shape a small kernel of Indian corn, but from the character of the stalk and tbe fact that the grain grows on the top of the stalks instead of on ears, I think it more properly classed as a millet. I write this for the reason that I sup pose there are many persons in Cali fornia who will raise it who do not know where it originated or how it got into California, and that they may have a curiosity to learn. There will be a great outflowing this year from the States (as we used to say in '50) to California. The long, severely cold Winter has led the peo ple to consider whether it is not better for them to go to a climate to pass the remainder of their days where they can have the whole of each year to enjoy the days left them, or whether they shall remain where they have only six mouths in each year to enjoy life in, while they must spend the other six in trying to keep from freez ing. During the Winter just past we have had three mouths in succession of cold weather, during which time tne mercury seldom rose above zero, and during most of that time it was at from ten to forty degrees below, aud three months more when it was but little above zero, and now ice-banks from ten to fifteen feet high may be seen along the shore of Green Bay, in the rear of my office, and last night the ground froze aud ice made on shallow waters. When we read your Southern California papers and letters from friends there, we sigh for your shady orange groves and the balmy air ofthe Pacific slope. Yours truly, E. S. Inoalls. Travelers' Home.

He says hun dreds of thousands of men are lying around idle. There are more men there than are needed, more than can live, and poverty and ruin are the in evitable results. In San Francisco rents are enormously high, a common two-story frame store-room, 24x60feet, bringing $400 per month. The Sacramento Bureau of Informa tion had up to Tuesday found occupa tion for eighty-five laborers. COURT REPORTS. District Court—Sepci.vki>.\. .i. Ti'kshav, May 20. Smith v.s.
