O. O. T., last niglit, a resulution was adopted thanking Mrs. M. M.

The Sunday school of Trinity M. E. Church South picknicked at Oak Grove yesterday. The children., accompanied by Itev. A. M. Camp pell aud their teachers, were driv en out in Osborne's caryall and other vehicles and spent a very pleasant day. The picnic of Stamm No. 133, (J. O. R. M., comes off at City Gar dens to-duy. The Gardens are one of the pleasantest places about the cily for a day's enjoyment and we have no doubt will be crowded. The entertainment will conclude with a ball in the evening. We are indebted to Harper & Bros., through Messrs. I ouis Lew in & Co., for "Deceivers Ever," a novel by Mrs. H. Lovett Cameron. Also, •' Less Black Than We're Painted," a novel by James Puyn. The imprimatur of the Messrs. Harper is a sufficient guarantee that these works are interesting. Mr. St. Clair yesterday showed us a specimen of honey made from the ball sage which surpasses any thing we have ever seen for clear ness. We placed tho bottle over a page of type and we could read the print just us readily through bottle and honey as if nothing had been before it. Tbls honey vas made at tbe Asiizr. We remind our lady readers that Mr. M. Hofl, of tho Capitol store, who has just returned from Sau Francisco, is receiving one of tlie largest anil best assorted stocks of the latest sty les of ladies' goods ever brought to Los Angeles, which he proposes to sell at nston ishingly low piices. Give him a call. Madame Z.inno's Blondes and Brunettes arrive to-day and will make their bow to a Los Angeles audience nt Turn Verein Hall to night. At all the places at which they have appeared they have beta received by crowded houses, and Ihe papeis speak in the highest terms of their performances. We expect to see Turn Vereiu Hall filled to overflowing to-night. Mr. J. K. Maxwe'l, proprietor of the Maxwell Tract, near Wilming ton, reports that he has 1,400 acres in wheat which uppears to be in the finest possible condition. It stands five four feet high and is well bearded, looking, as he termed it, us level as a barn floor. It lias shown no signs of rust, blight or lodging, and, nt present, appear ance.", is good for 30,000 sucks of grain. This would seem to contro vert the theory hitherto prevalent that wheat cannot be raised to ad vantage near tlio ocean. The Congregational Church ex cursion and picnic to Andrew*' Station yesterday was a most de lightful affair and was enjoyed by a large number of our citizens. As the train wm returning to the city It stopped at the mouth of tho tun nel for about half au hour to give the excursionists an opportunity to examine that wonderful work, which was taken advantage of by nearly the whole party. About six o'clock they arrived in the city, satisfied Hint their day in the couuiry had been very pleasantly passed. The late rains, fogs, and humil ity of the atmosphere generally has had a rather disastrous effect ou the wheat crop. We are told that rust has appeared on all tho wheat in Ibis section, and thnt the most of it will be a failure. One exception, however, is to be noted. The wheat sown by tho Miles Bros, aud by Mr. Gwin shows no signs of [ust, and there is every indication Hint it will mature in a perfect con dftion. The kind sown by them is the "Odessa wheat," and its supe rioilty over the " Souora wheat" will probably be fully established this year.— Anaheim Gazette. San Diego News: For some days past there have beer, rumors of new discoveries ol placer mines a short distance from tho city. A number of persons huve visited them, aud from a gentleman of large mining experience wo glean the following facts: The discoveries are at the base of the San Isidro mountains, übout thirty miles from San Diego, nud two miles north of the Mexican line. There are, up to this time, but two or three claims that uro paying anything, although there aro a large number of prospectors iv tho neighborhood. It is proba ble there are rich mines, both placer and quartz, in tlie neighbor hood, though, as yet, they are not found. We expect important de velopments from this locality iv a few days. Grand Jury Report. The Grand Jury, which has been in session six days, reported yes terday that they had examined 27 cases, finding true bills as follows: Burglary 4, forgery 3, grand lar ceny 4, embezzlement 3, murder 1, assault to murder 4, sending threat ening letter 1, resisting an offleer 1, perjury 1, robbery 1. Bills ignored: Forgery 2, grand larceny 2, duelling 1, arson 1. The jury in a body visited the jail and, while they find its man agement all that ia to be desired, they make the usual report as to Its unsultability for the purpose for which it Is used, and recom mend the Board of Supervisors to provide a more suitable building. A committee visited tho Huspital and report that they fouud it cleanly and well kept and the pa tients receiving every attention necessary to their comfort and re covery. The report concludes as follows: "In closing our labors we gladly acknowledge the material aid ren dered by the District Attorney and his assistant; also, to tbe Sheriff and his deputies for tlieir prompt ness und attention." The Horticultural Pavilion Site. Tlio Committee to select a site for the Horticultural Pavilion, held a meeting yesterday and reported that they had not yet agreed upon a location. Ex-Mayor Beaudry, with characteristic liberality, has tendered the Society a lot free of cost. This lot is located ou elevated ground ou Tem ple street, near Pearl, commanding a beautiful prospect and possessing many advantages of easy access, etc. Tlie Committee wero strongly tempted to accept the munificent oiler, but they Anally determined that it was a little too far removed from the present center of popula tion of the city, nud were therefore reluctently compelled to decline what would have been equivalent to a gift of two or three thousand dollars. Tho properties offered by Mr. Hellman and Captain Hutchinson, the flrst on Main street and the other on Spring, were discussed but wero finally rejected on ao count of the expensive building the Society would be compelled to erect for the reason that both are within the fire limits. The choice is now narrowed dowu to two locations —the oue offered by Mr. Kivarru, on Main, near Firth street, and the other that offered by Don Juan Warner, at the corner of Sixth and Main streets. Tlie committee favor these locations for the reason that, both being outside (lie lire limits, the Society, should they conclude to takeeitner, can erect an inexpen sive frame building suitable for their present wants. Further consideration of the question was postponed to an ad journed meeting, to be held ut the same hour and place next Satur day,when the mutter will be finally settled. Hon. Barney Woolf, Clerk of the Supreme Court, yesterday decided to accept the location tendered by the Messrs. Hellman and Mascarel for the session! of that Court. Col. P.. S. Baker had offered ten rooms In Arcadia Block, accessible from Los Angeles and Arcadia streets, and with au eutranco from Main street through the Baker block, for $100 a month. This offer was a very attractive oue and was con sidered very fully hy Mr. Woolf. The Messrs. Hell man and Mascarel gave Mr. Woolf the option of dictating abso lutely tho accommodations which the Court would need, with the privilege of naming his own price. Mr. Woolf, hiking Into considera tion tho admirable location of the uew building, and tlie very liberal authority given to modify the plan to suit the nicest requirements of the Court, made an oiler of SloO a mouth in the Messrs. Hellman and Mascarel for the ten rooms needed by tlie Court. They bind themselvts to put marble mantels and wash stands, gas fixtures nnd lire places in every room. The building will bo completed a full month before the Court will convene In I.os An geles, thus giving ample time for the masonry nnd plaster-work to become dry. The Messrs. New mark, we understand, had intended to tender the third story of their block (the old Temple Block) for tlio use of the Court, but so many modifications would have been ne cessitated in the plan of their build ing that, considering tho very moderate rental to which Mr. Woolf felt himself to be restricted, they did not, at the last, think it worth while to make any proposition. The location selected cannot fail to give very general satisfaction. It is ceutral, salubrious and pleasant in every way for the judges. LEGAL INTELLIGENCE. IMsirtl I COlirl SiCPCLVeDA, J.

Furmora' and Democratic Primary, At a meeting of tbo farmers at School House No. 2, Cienega School District, belli on Saturday, May 18, 1878, pursuant to a call for a Farmers' Council, Jus. M. Cate was elected President and Teofilo Valdez, Secretary. James W. Cate, James Thomp son, and E. A. Benedict, Sr., were elected delegates to tbe Farmers' Convention. E. A. Benedict, Jr., was elected to tbe Democratic Convention to be held June 4th. Tho following resolutions were adopted: Hetolved, Tbat in the befogged conditions sun minding tbe two po litical organizations through tlie action of their State Central Com mittees, and tho uncryatallzed con dition of the laboring men's party, the people aro practically left with out nominating conventions capa ble of inviting a general, cordial and united recognition of the re spective parties. Resolved, That we approve of tlie cull for a "Farmers' Council" without party distinction, and ex press the earnest hope that all school districts that have not had sufficient notice will either for mally or informally, make up their full representation during the com ing week. Resolved, That tho perilous con dition of public 11 flairs calls for de termined action iv the naming of delegates to the Constitutional Convention. Tho people must speak through nomlnatingconven tions or not bo heard. Resolved, That in this exigency Ihe farmers have an opportunity of exercising a marked Influence on the selection of Iho delegates by recommending suitable names lo the other nominating conventions, or if necessary, by making separate nominations Resolved, That tho Convention will be the people's grand oppor tunity (not soou to recur) for re forming the fundamental law, and if tlio farmers allow their "mow ers," " headers" anil " threshers" to prevent them from participa tion, then let Ihem wear the shack els which land monopolists, asso ciated capilal and corporate greed place upon them. Resolved, That our sympathies are with tlio struggliug laboriug masses of tho country, and we ex press tho earnest hope that they will reconcile tho unfortunate dis sension in their ruuks, ami, avoid ing excesses in speecli aud action, that they will demand and secure tbeir just rights under tlie forms of law. Tlieir cause and that of the farmers is substantially the same. Resolved, That State sovereignty and local self-government—town governments—aro the safe-guards ol ourcivil liberty; that the Federal government is sovereign within its limited powers, and the States are sovereign lo the extent of their re served|powers; that|eaob should see to tlie execution of its own laws. Resolved, That it is the duty of the State government to repress by the most rigorous laws the grasp ing, oppressive and corrupt prac tices employed by some corpora tions, monopolists and capitalists in debauching the public adminis trations and in augmenting their power und plunder. It is also its duty to repress the violence and disorder which these practices pro voke In times of general distress. An honest, vigorous, thorough ad ministration of the law is the only safety for both classes —tho rich and the poor. The death penalty should be Inflicted for bribery or corruption lv public office. The confidence of tho people ill the faithful administration of tlie gov ernment and its laws must be re stored or ultimately anarchy or despotism will be the result. Resolved, That the science of government consists in ascertain ing, expressing and executing Hie public will. Resolved, That it is tlie public will thill corporations shall be bridled and forced to a complete subordination tojustlaws; thai the sovereignty of the state shall be declared and effectually made su perior to the sovereignty of Hie great railroad power that, has so ling, so unblushingly und so suc cess ully debauched legislation, baffled nnd defied the laws and public officers and held political parties und the people of tlio State iv the hollow of lis hand. Resolved, That it is further tlie public wiil to establish such consti tutional plans of taxation, exemp tion and inheritance as will invite laud monopolists to sell and per sons of small means to buy in ■mall parcels. Thus the Stato will eventually connect tlio thousand) of idle hands ami hungry mouths with our millions of vacant acres without violence to private lights. Laud monopoly will gradually be overcome in tho slow, Impercepti ble progress which this reform can alone accomplish. Resolved, That it is further (he public will that "tlie Chinese must go;" that they ought to be expelled by any legal means permissable under the Federal Constitution, hut that they must have the protection of our laws while they are here. Resolved, That it Is further the public will that our revenue sys tem should be so dellnitely con structed that persons of small means or small farms shall not practically be assessed or taxed higher, In proportion, than persons of large means or large landed es tates; that growing crops should not be taxed; tbat forming imple ments or tools of a trade Of occupa tion by which the owner acquires a livelihood should be exempt from taxation, at least to a limited amount. Resolved, That it is further the public will that the provision in our present Constitution requiring tlie establishment of a system of rural town governments be re adopted, with adequate guarantees that it will bo put in operation by tho legislature and will secure to tlio people of each town the man agement of such public affairs ns properly pertain to town govern ment and make it the agency for the more effectual assessment, equalization and collection of taxes for school districts, town I(i county and State purposes. Resolved, That it is further tbe public will that all couniy ofllcers he paid by moderate salaries and that all fees bo collected and paid Into the public treasury, that cor ruption in ofllee lie punished by tbe swiftest and severest penalties; that a system (of industrial educa tion be established that will not only secure to each child tho com mon branches of learning, but will also secure to each a knowledge ol some industrial calling by which they may eatn a livelihood and become productivo elements in the body politic. Resolved, That our enormous ratos of Interest—one and a half and two per cent, a month—are subver sive of the public prosperity. They destroy the very industries that capital and reasonable rates could and would promote. Usury has become a public evil of that mag nitude that demands the interposi tion of the sovereign power. Like any other isi-uo between the peo ple and the money purses, if treat ed at all, it must lie settled in tho Constitution, and placed beyond legislative reach by tlie insertion of a rigorous self-operating maxi mum clause. The foregoing resolutions were offered by Judge Lindley, of Monte Viatel and unanimously adopted. Tbe original Blondes and Bru nettes, Pink Stockings and White Garter Minstrels, at Wood's Opera Bouse to-night. Gen. Wilcox and Arizona. We take pleasure in publishing the following interesting informa tion of military affairs io Arizona, furnished us by a gentleman who has recently made a tour of that Territory: Major General Wilcox, the new commanding offleer of the Depart ment of Arizona, seems determined to have Ins troops In readiness at all limes for au emergency. An order has beeu issued to post com manders to have three skirmish drills a week and turget practice once esch week, the order to take precedence of all other duties. Army matters iv Arizona have taken a decidedly favorablo turn. The country has been carefully in spected by lis commander, and al ready have men and horses been distributed where they will do the mostgond aud in a manner that meets the approvul of those most familiar with the necessities of tho Territory. New scouting lines have beeu occupied and a supply OStnp for scouting parties estab lished in the vicinity of the Cliiri cuhuu Mountains. I.ieut. Hanna, with cavalry and ludian scouts, is to patrol between Hauchuca and Camp Supply. Lieutenautßucker does the same duty, co-operating with detachments of Col. Hatch's troops between there and Fort Bayard, New Mexico, and Lieut. Carter is to operuto witli scouts between Fort Bayard and Camp Apache. Other opera tions aro directed from Grant and Bowie. In this manner any trail can be discovered and quickly followed of the hostile Indians now in the country or driven over tbe line by Mexican troops which are vigorously operating against our reuegade Indians in Sonora. A glance at the map will show the wisdom aud effectiveness of this disposition of our forces. Lieut. Henley, Acting Engineer officer, has been put to work making a new nud accurate map of all that part of South-eastern Arizona which lias uutil now been almost a sealed book. Col. C. E. Compton, commanding the Sixth Cavalry, has been placed in general charge of these movements. The new camp is surrounded by good grazing anil watered and tim bered lands and can bo supplied with forage cheaper than any other fort in Arizona. Cheap grain can now be obtained from Fronteras but the choice funning lands and water around it will soon be occu pied by settlers, since the presence of active troops has made the coun try safe. Prospectors uud settlers are already ruslilng into this, one of the choice parts of Arizona, and great surprise at its beauty and value for agriculture and mining is expressed hy all who now see it for tlie flrst time. Formerly rations hud to be taken from Camp Bowie (Apache Pass) goingaud returning; before troops could overhaul In dians they used to run short of food. The supply camp changes all that. All are attracted to General Wil cox, and the papers liken him to Gen. Crook, but Arizona's greatest debt to him is for giving the peo ple conlidence in the desire of the army to afford actual protection to settlers in that hitherto dangerous part of tlie country. ST.

Gentlemen—Several years since I look a severe cold, which settled on my lungs where it remained without relaxation. I was then iv Massachusetts, and growing worse and becoming unable to attend to my business, I returned home and com menced searching in earnest for some medicine whlou would restore my lost health. 1 consulted physicians and tried many remedies, but obtained no help und dally g.ew woise. I haa a ter rinle cough and raised a good deal ol blood. I had profuse bight sweats and seven? pain lv my side* 1 continued in thla state for months.and became so weak that it was with great difficulty I could w;t!lt. when 1 was advised to try Wistak's t> alsam op Wild Cuwry, and, to mygreaL Joy I soon tound t .hi ibis rent' edy h id arrested the Olseasc. I contin ued to use tho Balsam to the exten. oltive bottles and have, since then experienced no difficulty of Ihe lungs. I believe the Balsam Ul ed uiylno and I shall ever bold It in high estimation. Yours iruly, 1 Lawn ruKLi's , Oo it at Once!
