The Outlock. Bo absolutely ia Southern Cali fornia In the infancy of its develop ment, so crude and tentative have been all our efforts and bo far have we been from crystalling into the status which our geographical, ag ricultural and other possibilities atiign to us, that the situation is apt to and does change from year to year. The writer ia not an old California!!. His experience of the State only dates back some six years. And yet he has seen, during that time, a great many varyiug phases of development, both in Los Angeles and San Diego couuties. HeeawSan Diego when she was at the neap tido of her prosperity, and he saw that prosperity past away like a mist before the hoi Hummer suu. He has seen Lot Angeles iv two periods of depress 100 and In on> of exceptional pros perity. • There were few duller conimuni ties than Los Angeles in 1872. Al •yea were riveted on S*n Diego, tbi asserted coming rival of San Fran Cisco as a trade emporium. Of tb immense numbers who passed South on the steamers, few stopped •hort of San Diego. Los Angeles was hardly dreamed worthy of a visit of inspection. Of course this slighting of the fairest agricultural aud pomologl oal section of California could not last long, aud a reaction sec lv which carried this city up to tlie highest pitch or prosperity it has ever known. This progress was so great that it resulted in positive fever, with the Inevitable re-action, which has now lasted some years, and which we firmly believe to be Nit an end. We are intimately aware of all tbe drawbacks which vow Incon veulenoe Los Angeles. The com pleted Hail way has by no moans proved all that its advocates claim ed for It. It involved certain radi oal changes in our methods of doing business which make tho period ol t ansition one of trial and positive hardship. But we should like to have a single instance in the history of railways pointed out to US in which tlie experience was different from our-. As a result of the competition of Ihe Central and Union Pacific Railways San Fran- Oiseo not only failed lo realize her extravagant expectations, but she was thrown back years while ac commodating herself to the change. That the railway is now a recognized benefit to San Fran clseo, and that it has been for some yar», no sane citizen of tlie me tropolis will feel inclined to dis pute. Los Augeles, also, will go through a similar experience. While the completion of the rail way from Sao Francisco via Los Angeles to Yuma lias diverted some sources of trade from our City, it has created aud will con tinue to create uew ones. Those ol our merchants who are character ized by any degree of enterprise are building up quite a remunera live trade lv Arizona. We are in formed by tliem that \rizinaus are proving their most reliable customers, satisfactory remittances from that territory being us cer tain as tbe day. As we may legitimately regard Arizona as a portion of our "back country," it is impassible to avoid noting with pleasure the rapidity of the development which is now witnessed there. The shipments of four mines of that territory, in the single mouth of August, ag gregated nearly two hundred thousand dollars. From all we can hatn wo have no dnuht whatever but that the yield of the Arizona mines for the cut rent year will amount to six or seven million dollars. This bum will be indefinitely increased in tlie com ing years. With Arizona our re lations are certain to be profitable, and our already considerable com mercial intercourse is sure to ex pand to huge proportions. Bur, more than any outside guarantee, is the assurance of pros peiity we have in our local devel opment. It has really been mar velous. In soma sections of Loa Angeles county there are now us many settlements at there were formerly single inhabitants. This la notably the case in tlie southern portion of the County, although Ix>s Angeles proper and the Son Gabriel valley have been marked by an almost equal rapidity ol growth. Imruensu areas of our lands, which were formerly desig nated as fit only for pasturing ibeepsud cattle, have been demon strated to be the most fertile and productive in tlie State, and to ad mit of the most varied range of products. Tho growth of our corn and alfalfa farms lias kept pace with Ihe progress of our orange groves and vineyards. Wheat is now successfully cultivated in Los Angeles county with no greater drawbacks than attended the Wheat farmer, In the first stages of the experiment, in tbe now most famous wheat counties in IheState. Xreti iv the present year, one ex ceptlonally unfavorable to the wheat farmer on account of the ex cess of tho rainfall, we have raised more than enough wheat to feed our own people. The Messrs. Laukershim & Van Nuys have also seen to it that we shall grind our own flour, so that one principal leak, through which money was drained abroad, has been plugged. When we look around is in Los Angeles city aud couuty all the signs of a revival of prosperity, and a prosperity of the most robust kind, present themselves. We may not for years see again the specu lative fever which raged here once But we have seen the- worst, and the watchword henceforth is ex celsior. We shall go surely upward and onward. We raise hero the c tii, wive and oil which have been the leading staples of com merce from the remotest days of antiquity, and the vine, the fig, olive, orange, iemou and pome granate will grow iv rows with the potato and tho beau. We have two millions of acres of spontaneous grasses, which cure themselves on the ground, on which to pasture our sheep and cattle, leaviug about twelve hundred thousand acres which are destined to tidily re ward a miuute and painstaking cultivation, aud from which a pop ulation of hundreds of thousands msy derive a comfortable sub sistence. These thiugs are certain to make themselves felt; and, con sidering the comparatively low prices of real estate now prevalent here, they point out Los Angeles as the Mecca of judicious investors. The Express of yesterday in dulges iv a rather singular expres sion of political opinion. It says that the laurels have been about equally divided between the two parties iv Indiana and Ohio, and then admits a loss of five members of Congress ill those two States to the Republicaus. Altogether six teen per cent, of Ihe members of the House of Representatives huve been so far voted for, with a net Republican loss of six, counting v gain of one Republican member in West Virginia, which we beg to doubt, aud taking Republican esti mates exclusively for all tho de tails of the elections. Tho simple rule of three thus enables us to work out the percentage thus; If the Republican parly loses five members ou one-sixteenth of the elections, how many will they lose as the ratio ot tlie remaining eighty-four per ceut? By this in exorable rule of arithmetic we liud that the total Republican losses in the Congressional elections, will ho thirty-one, reducing tlie present membership of that parly In tbe House from one hundred anil forty to one hundred und nine members. And this will probably ho tlie issue of the com ng elections. Ukn. Sherman's penchant for writing letters is at present receiv ing a good deal of notice, by no means of a favortib'e kind, at the hands or the press. The General of the Army undoubtedly has a weak ness for "slopping over" on some topic, but if he always devotes his c immunications to purposes so in nocent and even laudable as cheer ing on the work of spanning the wistesof Arizona with the iron rdi, the people generally can af ford to forgive the old soldiei's girrulity. For a man who once banished newspapermen from Ins li ie», William Tecumseh Sherman his a remarkable faculty for ven tilating himself through the press. I i nearly every instance thus far he has employed tin types either in insidious attacks on the Demoo rrcy and Democratic retrench ment or in glorifying \V. T. Sher man. One ot our San Diego coutempo riries the other day Objected to the S ittlbern Pacific Railway designat ing that portion of its road running South from Los Angeles as " The San Diego branch." We do not see any force in this querrulous ob jection. Tom Scott started out six or seven years ago with the osten sible purpose of building a railway to San Diego, and lie has not made near as much progress In that di rection as the Southern Pacific lias done in tlie past two years. As we have often predicted, San Diego will get her first railway from the direction of Los Angeles and we hope to see it pushed forward rap idly,as we are anxious to see aclose Connection between our own Or ango Grove City ami our Southern neighbor. Sau Diego can afford to welcome the advent of the Iron horse from whatever direction it may come. TllK news of tlie serious illness of Oen. Cotton, following so soon ou the heels of his election as Presi dent of the Arizona branch of the Southern Pacific Railway, is a re minder of tlie very precarious hold which our railway magnates have upon their energies and life. Gen. Cotton appeared to be the youngest aud most active of tbe men who have achieved such wonders In railway building. What effect the death of the President would have upon the Arizona extension it would be difficult to say, but we presume that the plans of these mighty corporations have crys tallized into a system and are in dependent of the life or death of their original promoters.—Since writing the foregoing the intelli gence reaches us by telegraph that Gen. Coltou is dead. The situation for the Democracy in the next House of Representa tives is becoming mure and more roseate. It actually appears that we have carried two of the lowa Congressional districts. Great heavens! Can such thiugs be with out a good deal of special wonder on tho part of Democrats them selves? We herewith venture on a little prophecy, which wo are per fectly willing to have tiled away for future reference, viz., that the Republican membership iv the uext House will lv no event exceed one hundred and ten and may fall considerably below niuety. And yet we are told that the Demo cratic party is dead! Iv good sootb it is a lively sort of a corpse. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.
