Farm Notes (Downey Courier.) Dr. Wolfe commenced on Tues day laat slaughtering hogs. He will have butchered about a hun dred head this week, and will turn them Into hams and bacon. Dr. Wolfe understands the business, and will plaoe an excellent quality of oured meats on the market. He is also buying bogs for the San Franolsoo market. Oar exports during the present Week bave consisted of: Corn, 293 aacka, 36,048 pounds; ten bundles treat,(oo pounds; ten boxes oranges, 716 pounds; five oars hogs, 100,000 pounds; merchandise, 1,645 pounds. Total, 138,508 pounds. Three car loads of hogs were shipped from here on Sunday last and two more on Thursday. There were three hundred and fifty-one In the two shipments, and the hogs were purchased by Mr. Morton and Dr. Wolfe for tbe San Francisoo market. One car load was shipped from Loa Angeles. Buy ers are pay - Ins; two and a half cents per pound for hogs, and there seems to be a downward tendeucy in prices. Our valley is gradually assuming Importance as an exporter of wal nuts and oranges. For several years walnuts bave been raised here, but It is only quite recently that orange trees have come into bearing. Two shipments have just been made to San Francisco, and tbe fruit was exceptionally One. Last year 25,557 pounds of walnuts were shipped to Han Francisco, be sides those sold at homo and used by the producers themselves, which comprised no small arnouut. This year there will bo several shippers of oranges from here, James Shugg, J. M. Bushard, L. L. Bequette, George Harter aud John Tweedy. Mr. J. H. Burker Is tbe largest shipper of walnuts, owning two large orchards; tbe ether shippers being Jamea Shugg and O. P. Pas aens. Many persons have a few bearinpr orange and walnut trees, which nourish luxuriantly through out this valley. [Downey Outlook.] C. M. Beubrook, of this place, lias ft vegetable curiosity iv his garden ■ \ l, -8t is something entirely uewto. us. It is the common pepper that bas yielded three crops for three successive years; ami it is now get ting ready for tlie fourth yield. Portions of the moro tender branches die every year, and are trimmed oft, leaving i lie main stnlk t» put forth new shoots. We have always supposed that the pepper Is au annual plant; this seems to be perennial. But, then, California i ■ always committing some freak or other. i We Heard three men of this val ley talking about their young orange trees the other day, from which we gathered tbe following facts: Mr. H. Sealer said be had a two-year-old bud tbat preduced flfty-two oranges, and Mr. O. P. Parsons replied that he hud ouu of tbe same age that is bearing fifty one. Mr. Jobn Tweedy said that he had eleven trees of tho Mission variety, budded on Mission, only seven years old, that are bearing flue oranges, 120 of which fill a box oftbesize in which this fruit ia shipped. We think these facta are pretty good for a "hog und corn country." Specimens of oats and wheat, grown ou the farm of J. S. Elliot, on east side of New River, have been left at this _ Tbe seed came from Sonoma crttHity, and is known as the "While Dutch" variety. Mr. Elliot says it ia much better than the common kind, so generally known. The stalk grows as high ns eight and a half feet, and the head is Bitten inches long. Tho wheat is also from Honomu county, and is supposed to be tlie Austra lian. It is beardless, the grain is large and this variety soems to be subject to no rust, as it lias escaped, although grown ou rich bottom land. Mr. Elliot promises to write to his brother, who sent him the seed, and get further information, which we shall commuuicato to our readers. If this wheat, which sev eral judges have pronounced very superior, can he grown on our bot tom lands without rust, it is very valuable to Ibis Bection. Rev. Mr. Hill's Lecture at Ana helm. L Anaheim Gazette.J Tbe lecture delivered by the liev. W. H. Hill of .Loa Augele9 on Thursday eveulug was worthy of a much larger attendance than that which was present. We should hail a large attendance at such lectures as a good indication of a tssto for higher entertainment than that which negro minstrels and Terpsicborean gatherings afford, and we hope that tbe time will come when an overflowing hall will mark tbe intellectual appetite of our people. The lecturer began by vindicating his right as a clergy man to engage In the work of societies such as the Ma sonic order and tie Odd Fel lows. Tbo Church of Christ Is a great brotherhood, ami has for one of itsmbjects the amelioration of evil and relief of distress, but its members do not always do their doty, and distress still exists and cries for help. The heuevolence of Odd Fellowship and Masonry meets to a great extent tbe demand, and In working with these societies the minister of the Gospel is helping forward one great end of his minis try, In particularizing these twe societies Mr. Hill paid a warm tri bute to others, such as the Good Templars, etc., but said he would speak principally of those which he knew must intimately. The place and work of such socie ties were forcibly and eloquently exhibited in connection with three leading points, Ist. The pewer of association in charitable and be nevolent works. Individual charity needs channels through which to flow. It needs concentration and direction; otherwise muoh of its feree is dissipated. The effect or association is to encourage and In tensify the beuevolcuce of the world. 2d. Their social effects. Differ ences of race, pursuits, religious creed and political opinions all tend ta sever men into oliques and parties. Animosities and antago nisms arise and perpetuate theevil. The influence of such societies is to weld together differing elements and to soften down asperities. Striking illustrations of this prop osition were adduced by the Rever end lecturer. Sd. Tbeir Influence In tbo con servation of existing institutions. I Political considerations lie outside of tbo range of such societies and loyalty to "the powers that be" is inculcated by all the principles of Masonry and Odd Fellowship. Touching allusions to events in connection with our civil war bore out the speaker's remarks, and he concluded with an eloquent appeal to his brother Masons and Odd Fellows to live up to the princi ples of their orders, and to see that no reproach oould be cast on the Societies by the unworthy lives or characters of any members.

Mr. Editok:—Having read in jour pa per reports of the remarkable cures ol ca tarrh, I am induced to tell " what 1 know about catarrh," and I fancy the "snuff" and "inhaling tube" makers (mere dol lur grabbers) would be glad If they could emblazon a similar cure lv the papers. Fur 2tJ years I suffered with catarrh. The nasal passages became completely closed. "Snuff," "dust," "ashes," "iuhaling tubes," and "sticks" wouldn't work, though at intervals I would sniff up the so-called catarrh snuff, until 1 became a valuable tester for such medicines. 1 gradually grew worse, aud no one can know how much 1 suffered or what a miserable being 1 was. My head ached over my eyes until 1 was connnedtomy beaior many successive days, Buffering the most intense pain, which at one time lasted continuously for 103 hours. All senso ot sincll aud taste goue, sight and bearing impaired, body shrunken and weaaenea nervous system snat tered and constitution broken, audi was hawking and spiLting seveu-eigbtns of the tube. I prayed lor death to relieve me ot mv suffering. A favorable notice In your paper ot Dr. Sage's Catarrh Keniedy lu duced nte to purchase a package and use It with Dr. l'ierce's Nasal Douche, which applies the remedy by hydrostatic pres sure, the only way compatible with com mon sense. Well, Mr. Editor, it did uot cure mo In three-iourths of a second, nor Inonehour or month, but lv less than eight minutes X wus relieved, and in three months entirely cured, and have remained so oVer sixteen months. While using the Catarrh remedy, 1 used Dr. l'ierce's Golden Medical Discovery to pu rity my blood and strengthen my stom ach. I also kept my liver active and bowels regular by the use of bis Pleasant Purgative Pellet*. If my experience will induce other sufferers lo seek the same means ot relief, this letter will have an swered ils purpose. Yours truly, S. P. BBMICK.
