Mr. Mullally's house, a.s projected, will cost $5,000. The Board of Supervisors met yes terday, but did little business. The Victor Sewing Machine is the most perfect of the Howe class. Mayor Beaudry held an inquest on seventeen cases .yesterday morning. Orange Grove Encampment, No. 31, I. O. O. F., meets this evening. The Thirty-Eights held their regu lar meetiug last night. The track is laid eight miles beyond Spadra. The grading on the East side of Temple Block, is being pushed vigor ously. Mr. Ollivier de Villers has started a public, "Au Jardin dv Progres," on Aliso street. Mr. John Archibald, director of the San Francisco Savings Union, has ar rived with money to loan. The San Bernardino Advertiser, No. 11, has reached us, making a creditable appearance. Messrs. Joe Huber, Dr. Gelclch and Baker went up to San Fernando on Sunday. Col. R. S. Baker has returned for a day or two, and is registered at the Backman House. Capt. Kraszynski, of Lyon'sStation, arrived in town last evening and showed his genial face on our streets. The steamer Ancon arrived yester day morning, with 110 passengers and 390 ions of freight. Mr. J. D. Dunlap has beeu appointed land agent for this section by the S. P. R. R. Co., aud the appointment is a pleasing one to the community. A Chinaman was arrested yesterday for racing his horse on Spring street; but it appearing that the horse was unmanageable, he was released. Prof. Randolph will lecture at Mer ced theatre to-night ou "The Philoso phy of Life after Death." He is worth hearing. Mr. Herman Morris has been ap pointed by Major Toberman agent at Downey for the Home Mutual, and It is a very proper selection. The Bruning Tract is offered for sale on easy terms. It is desirable property and persons wanting homes can get nice residence sites cheap. The Southern Miustrels give another entertainment to-night, and they should have :t crowded house. An entire change of programme. Marshal Carrillo, assisted by Officer Sanchez, arrested on Bpring street, yesterday morning, Tanislado Armen ta, who about two months ago stabbed a man and stole his horse. He was held to answer. The Southern Minstrels gave a highly creditable entertainment last night to a good house. We can cor dially recommend this gentlemanly troupe to all our neighboring towns as first-class burnt cork artists and pleasant business men. Sam. Prager desires us to say that he has just received a large assort ment of linen suits, morning and eve ning wrappers, and neatly and figura tively worked underwear,all for ladles. We know It's so or Sam. wouldn't say it. The festival of Pentecost, commem orating the promulgation of the law from Mount Sinai, will commence to night. A lecture in English will be delivered at the Synagogue to-morrow morning by Rabbi Edelman on "The Ten Commandments." Mr. Ben. A. Stanard, foreman of the Herald, has suddenly expanded to the dimensions of a ton. He has grown a very Croesus, too, and goes about distributing champaigne among the printers. It's a boy, and the im age of its dad. Mr. Chas. H. Johnston, of San Luis Obispo, called on the Herald office yesterday. Mr. Johnson was too mod est to inform us of the fact, but from other sources we learn that he is the choice of a great many Democrats of this district for Congress. The editor of the Herald acknowl edges the receipt of a complimentary ticket to the Eighth Annual Tuolumne Reunion, to take place at Badger's Central Park, Oaklaud, on the 17th of June, 1875. As he cannot be pr jsent he takes this opportunity to wish all a happy time, ana to hope that the oc casion may prove a union of hearts as well as of hands. We have just received from Messrs. Sherman & Hyde, music dealers of San Francisco, a copy of the " Elaine Fu neral March," composed by Blumen thai and published by them. The title page is embellished with an ac curate photograph of Toby E. Roseu thal's magnificent painting, Elaine. Every lover of good music should send 50 cents in currency or stamps to the publishers aud obtain a copy. JWe had the pleasure of a call yester day from Mr. Strassburger, of the firm of Sachs, Strassburger & Co., millinery dealers, of San Francisco, who has given Los Angeles an extend ed visit and made many warm ac quaintances. We hope to see more of such an enterprising business man. He is always welcome. The popular jewelry firm of Fisher & Thatcher will not sell cheap Eastern or San Fraucisco made jewelry. They claim to sell and manufacture the very best of everything in their line. We notice that they have just turned out a fine gold vest chain, made for Mr. T. Jeff. White. Notwithstanding the dull times this house continues to do a fine business. Reason: they offer nothing but goods that they can guar antee, and their prices are always the same. The reputation of the house is too well known to need further com ment. Santa Monica. Our young Long Branch is looking up in a sprightly manner. It was our good fortune to visit the popular re sort last Sunday, and we witnessed a scene of life and gaiety altogether un expected. Last Summer the bathing season was not fully Inaugurated until July, when people with their throats full of dust were fairly driven off to catch a breath of sea breeze. This year pleasure-seekers and caterers to the pleasure-seeking public have taken time by the forelock, and the deserted cation of a week ago now sports quite a village of tents, "establishments," etc. There are already two good res taurants in running order, one of them presided over by Mrs. Anthony and the other by our old friend Will Tell, formerly of Tell's Retreat. Mr. Dupuy has a new corral and livery es tablishment on the grounds, where he takes good care of visitors' rigs, and keeps a supply of horses and buggies to let. Besides this there is a peanut stand, moved out bodily from the city, and several other evidences of positive luxury scattered about the cailon. There were about a hundred aud fifty ladies and gentlemen present, only a small proportion of whom availed themselves of a dip iv the surf, as the water is yet rather cool for bathing and there is a lamentable lack of bathing suits. J. M. Donaldson, the pioneer stager, has our thanks for courtesies extended, as well as that Jehu, Sam Harper,who is running the "opposition." Mayor Beaudry's Improvements. Mayor Beaudry has just completed his new supply reservoir on Alameda street. This consists of an excavation 120 feet long by 80 feet wide and 8 feet deep, which gives a caprcity of over half a million gallons. The sand and gravel which has been taken out of this large reservoir is placed so as to form an embankment entirely around it and about four feet nigher than the surrounding land. Almost the whole of the excavation has been In a coarse white sand and gravel, through which the clear, crystal water may be seen bubbling up. The sides of the reser voir have been paved with cobble stones, and the extensive system of drain pipes and ditches which is being constructed under the supervision of Mr. McCarty, the efficient engineer of the work, will so drain the surface water, as to prevent a single drop from entering the reservoir, which is filled by the supply bursting up directly through the bottom. From here the water is pumped through cast iron pipes to the reservoirs on the hills and from them distributed through the mains to the consumers. It is a pleas ing sight to see the precious fluid well ing up in such unlimited supply, and we congratulate our energetic Mayor upon the final success of his arduous labors. A high board fence is to be constructed entirely around the Ala meda street reservoir, and the inside of the enclosure will be planted with eucalyptus trees. We advise our citi zens to take a walk up Alameda street to-day and satisfy themselves of the abundance and quality of this water supply. A One-Man Convention. Editor Herald: As a voter, your correspondent was somewhat impress ed with the one-man idea, when he read your account iv your Sunday's paper of the proceedings of "the In dependents iv session." J. S. Thompson is the only Thomp son on the committee, and therefore the only Thompson present. J. S. Thompson makes a motion- Carried. Mr. Thompson does likewise—again carried. Judge J. S. Thompson reports—also carried. J. S. Thompson is appointed a dele gate to the State and Congressional Convention, and J. 8. Thompson is elected Secretary. Query: Is the Independent party a Thompßonian party? t A Santa Monica Fracas. On Saturday night Henry Malcolm and S. J. Dunn got Into a fracas at Santa Monica over a game of cards, which resulted in Dunn being seri ously stabbed. Malcolm was arrested yesterday, but as Dunn could not ap pear, owing to his wounds, he was re quired by Judge Gray to furnish bonds in $500 for his appearance, Messrs. Mullally aud Kurtz being his bonds men. It is only justice to Malcolm to say that he denies the charge and as serts that Dunn was drunk, and in falling cut himself. A Serious Accident. On Sunday afternoon, as Henry Baebr aud Fred. Fleischman were re turning home from Arroyo Seco, rac ing their horses, Baehr's horse fell and his companion's horse fell on him, breaking bis collar bone ln three places. Baehr is about eighteen years old aud works for Mr. Ponet. His ac cident will lay him up for a month, and is another sad warning against the practice of racing. The Santa Barbara News reports the following stage robbery: " The Coast Line stage was robbed about a mile and a half this side of La Graciosa and about seventy miles West of here, be tween one and two o'clock yesterday morning. James Caldwell was on the box and he had Just reached a point where the road pass through a llveoak thicket, wheu his leaders shied and by his stage-lamps the driver saw that a ropo was stretched across the way. As he pulled up his team a voice oalled out frotn behind a tree: "I've got you!" " What dou want?' asked Cald well. "I want the box," replied the voice. "Are you in earuest?" To which the hoarse voice from the thicket responded, "If you don't put that box out I'll show you, by G—d!" The ominous appearance of a gun muz zle looking at him from behind the tree was an argument too strong for even Jim Caldwell, and the box was accordingly thrown out. The image of a man was seen in the darkness at the other side of the road from where the active operator was; but the driver is not certain whether it was a man or a dummy; probably the latter, as the Image remained immovable through out the time of the stoppage. There were four men in the stage at the time. It is more than likely that this rob bery was perpetrated by the same in dividual who so successfully operated about a week ago near Plelto. Ha got away with about $350 the first 'ime, but it is not yet reported how much was in the box taken yesterday morn ing—probably very little." LETTER FROM ORANGE. Fair Haven (settlement—A tiood Re port or Crops— Temperance Senti ment of the Place—A Homo for in vnlidn -Interesting' Particulars. Editor Herald: We have a new colony near us. Mr. Messenger is starting a settlement about four miles Southeast of our place. I was over the locality yesterday, and took a good look at the surroundings. fair haven, For so Mr. Messenger has christened it, is situated on the mesa immedi ately below the foothills. It is em braced both on the North and South by ridges that extend a considerable distance out upon the plain. The ridge on the Northern side will shelter the new town almost entirely from the Northers, or "Sauta Anas," as we call them here, that are such a nui sance occasionally to tho rest of the plain. Mr. M. offers these lands, com prising several hundred acres, espe cially to Episcopalian communicants and persons favorable to the Episcopal church. He places the price this year at thirty dollars per acre, but this low rate will soon be quadrupled, perhaps in one year, in the legitimate rise in value of the land. The lands of the tract are of several kinds. Some is pure adobe, but the greater portion is of the finest loam, suoh as has been shown by experience to be best adapt ed for fruit aud vegetable raising and flower gardening. When the railroad is extended to the San Joaquin Ranch, lying to the South of Fair Haven, the tract will have as favorable access to the depot as Orange itself. There can not be a particle of doubt that this land will produce anything grown in any part of the county, and its peculiar lo cation, up on the mesa and near the hills, on the warm belt, renders it ex tremely probable that the banana and similar plants can be cultivated suc cessfully. A water ditch above the tract has already been dug and the lands are ready for immediate occupa tion, a part having already been set to vineyard. For residences the location is a very fine one, as the whole tract overlooks the great valley containing the Rancho de Santiago de Santa Ana and the Rancho de San Joaquin. The view is very beautiful, but it is from Rattlesnake Hill, about one mile dis tant, that the eye is delighted with the most lovely picture the mind can imagine. Stretching out from our feet forty miles to the left and ten to the right lies the Happy Valley, beautiful with sycamore groves, waving grain fields aud bright green meadows. One tries to fancy the scene when every spot shall be green and blooming with flowers and covered, so near in the fu ture, with the happy homes of a hun dred thousand living souls. The ocean lies in full view, and the islands in the distance. Wilmington harbor, the light-house, and away off to the North west the school-house "on the hill" in Los Angeles, all assist in forming a scene as varied and interesting, as bright and beautiful, as one could de sire to look upon. NEWS ABOUT TOWN. But to leave these things that no body will believe until they come and see for themselves, let me give you the items about town. They are all practical, as we are a practical people here and indulge iv sentiment only when we get on top of Rattlesnake or some other hill and think how delight ful it will all be when so many people fill up the country that our land will bring a thousand dollars an acre, easy. The well-directed enterprise of Messrs. Neill & Benedict, who opened a livery and stage stable a few weeks ago, has met with merited success. Their teams are busy nearly all of the time, and from their cheerful countenances It is easy to draw the inference that the harvest of dimes is satisfactory. Their success is simply due to the fact that they have met a long-felt need. There are yet other directions in which enterprise and capital can profitably be turned here, outside of the farming interest, which will take care of itself. Success to the firm of Neill & Benedict and may many more like them come among us. NO GRASSHOPPER PLAGUE. We read a great deal about the grasshoppers in Kansas, and some are said to even visit Los Angeles. We confess to a few in the neighborhood, but nobody complains of damage done by them. A gentleman who has lived here four years, aud whose business takes him all over the tract about every three days, told me that he has never known of their doing any ma terial injury to crops during the entire period of his residence here. There are no fears of them among the peo ple, although an estray grasshopper is quite a common sight. Some of my friends object to my spelling of the "San Diagus." It is wrong, I admit; but I gave the ex pression as 1 most often heard it, and, like the valedictory student that made somebody else's speech, "I had it in quotation marks." THE GOOD TEMPLARS. We had an eloquent address last Monday evening by Mr. Kilpatrick, on the subject of temperance. This gentleman is doing much good by his addresses in different parts of the State. If he can only make a speech that will keep away the saloon-man who is coming, we will make him up a purse. Saloons may be very desira ble sometimes, but we feel quite able to get along without your assistance— so do keep away, if you please. Mr. Kilpatrick organized a branch of the State Temperance Alliance and en rolled a body of nineteen members—a pretty good evening's work. THE SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENTS. Mr. Furlong's school closed for the week to-day, with quite a series of pleasant little entertainments. A number of the pupils gave recita tions, aud a number of songs were sung. Other exercises were given of a natnre to manifest the real interest taken in the school by both pupils and teacher. Mr. Furlong deserves great credit for the manner in which he has done his work here; but then he has the finest material to work with and ought to do well. His school is acred it both to him and to the neighbor hood. We would like the teachers of Los Angeles to spend a day or two of their vacation in coming down to see it. A COUNTRY FOR INVALIDS. Much has been said in the papers about Los Angeles county as a resort for invalids. The great want in this direction has been convenient, pleas ant homes, where invalids could have the quiet and rest they need, as well as proper medical treatment. An ef fort is being made here in Orange to meet such a want, and it promises to become eminently successful. The handsomest building in Orange is the Hygeian Home, kept by Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Larkin. The main building is a coucrete structure, two stories high, 46 feet long and 31 wide. The pur pose is to give invalids the preference always in the matter of accommoda tion, though other boarders will be taken and transient travel accommo dated when it is possible. Not yet being filled with regular boarders, tbe house has thus far oeen kept princi pally as a hotel, and though it has been in operation only about four weeks, il has already wou a very fa vorable reputation. It is safe to say that Mrs. Larkin aud her husband will both do all in their power to make their guests comfortably and, their previous efforts taken as a guaranty of the future, will add greatly to the pleasure of a "trip to Orange." Their house is thoroughly fitted up in the most approved style, aud one cannot wish for a cosier room or a better meal than can be had by a stay in the Hy geian Home. A system of sun baths and " Swedish movements" will be organized in connection with the es tablishment, of which I will write more when they are completed. A CONVERSATIONAL CLUB. The "Orange Conversational Club" was organized this evening. As its name indicates its purpose is to culti vate the art of conversation. A full set of officers was elected, an earnest conversation held on the question of "how to keep out the saloon man," and subjects chosen for future meet ings. The attendance was large enough to give the new Society a very favor able start. The Society was unani mous in opposition to the saloon man, and a mass meeting appointed for his benefit to-morrow night. W. Orange, June 4th, 1875. The firm of Treadwell & Co. of San Francisco lias suspended. 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, h ats, etc., which they will sell at bot tom prices. Call and examine their stock. ml COURT REPORTS. Probate Court—O'Melvrny, J. Monday, June 7. Estate of Henry Paderats, deceased.—Peti titlon for sale of real estate disallowed, and ordered that R.
