Tbe Fourth was peculiarly free from holdouts of a disagreeable obaraoter One or two slight acci dents occurred from Ihe careless baudllog ol fireworks, but no seri ous resulte followed, lue roof vf a Uouse ou bp ring street caught fire from a failing rocket, but It was extinguished by tbe polioe with out calliug upon Ibe lire depart -meut.

The triumphal car was designed and decorated by Wm. Stoermer and Mike Curreu, assisted by Miss Annie Alexander and Miss Nora Horn. The young lady who represented a Goddess, riding in tbe oar nf tbe Painters' Union, was Miss Maud Stephenson. From all that we oan gather from those wbo were present from this oily, the celebratiou at the Azusa on tbe Fourth was one of Ihe most delightful tbat has ever been held in tbis county. After a patriotic address by Col.

So toothsome were tbe viands tbat two prominent couuty officials are credited with having got away witb a sheep apiece, in addition to huge sections < f the choicest portions of the bullock.

OaUbiatloa la tkii Oity—Decoration— A Usls Tvn oat— Patriotic Oration by Stapben M. White, Etq, Notwithstanding the chilling ef fect the recent dastardly attempt to assassinate President Garfield and bis precarious condition bed upon our citizens, tb« nationai an niversary, thanks to the energy and good taste -of Confidence En gine Company No. 2, was fittingly observed. The prooession although not as large as others we have a-eu lv this oity, was tbe most complete aod imposing in every detail (bat has ever graced our streets aud all •iue, we take pleasure in repeating, to tbe "git up and git" ot the Con fl leuoe Boys. As tbe last strobe of twelve was told by the towu clook on Sundry night the celebration opened by a saluts of thirteen guns, fired unde£ the direotion of Walter MoGratb. At sunrise a full national sa lute <>f thirty-eight guns wsa fired r.y the same efficient artiilei iat and again repealed at noon aud at sunset. Although the heal was fervid, tbe streete Were filled at an early buur by cltlasns aud visit ors from tbe oountry and presented a gala appearance. Along the route of the procession and general ly throughout tbe city, many pri vate bouses, places of business and all the hotels were decorated 1 Willi evergreens aud patriot- ( lo emblems, lbe most nuts- , ble bel"g Couflleoce Engine ] House, lbe beadquaneis of tlie | celebration. At the Junction Of Main and Spring streets tbe ( speaker's stand presented a gala appearance, with Its fee toons of flags and tbe effect was j heightened by ropes of evergreen , stretched from the roof of Temple Blook to Downey and Hellman . Blocks across the streets. The bo- ( tela flew their fl igs, as, in faot, did , all the establishments blessed witb fl g poles Thirty Eight*' Engine House bore some deonratiouo, j among whioh was a motto in evergreen over tbe door "Ou duty July 4 h, 1881."

Although the column was far from tbe longest w« have seen iv Loa Augeles, it is only fair to say tbat, for the number who turned out, we nevei before saw so attract ive a display. The triumphal cars were gotten up with the most marked deooratve ability. The presiding goddess of the hose car riage was Miss Chauvin, erstwhile Captain of the Carnival Quad The ship of state was commanded by Miss Bowena Lanfrauco. Tbis conceit of a boat on wheels was a very happy one. A crew of sailoi lads with blue blouses and cups, manned thecruft aud feathered the oars. A- little oanopy iv the center of tbe boat overspread the fair oommandante. After moving through tbe prin cipal streets In accordance witb Ihe published programme, tbe column drew up iv front of the speakei's staud and the ezeroises of tho day were opeued. Lieutenant Governor Mau-fl>ld was called upon to preside and he preformed the duties of obalrmau with his usual grace. After a uatiiotic air by tbe baud, Mr. Gen. S Patton was introduced and pro ceeiied to read the Declaration of independence. Next, Stephen M White, Esq , orator nf the day, was presented. He delivered AN ADDRESS Filled with souud patriotic ideas, and with little about It of the usual Fourth-of July, pyrotesblo order. Alluding to the Impossibility of offering new ideas ou a theme so , well worn, be said bs would give up the attempt, commending It to persons possessing inventive facul ties of a high order. That nation, It has beeu said, is tbe best governed which is lhe least, governed. By tbat I under stand is meant not a state of an archy, but that perfect order which ought to follow tbe establishment - of mild and wise laws, operating ' upon Intelligent mluds and acqui esced in because obedience to them - Is the logical result of their ex | amiualion. We are daily endeav oring to perfect our systems of oilu I oation. How to make the boys and 1 the girls learn useful things, iv the most expeditious manner, is Ibe - study of the schoolmaster. That 1 Improvements are constantly tak s lug plane In this direction ought not lo he a subjeot nf discussion. 1 If we believe It material toadvauce * the cause of letters we must, too, i concede that no education oau be perfect which does not, lo some cx i tent, instil into the mmd of Ihe pu pil tbe cardinal principles of gov -9 eminent, Tbis ie more necessary 3 in a country where tbe rights or citizenship are universal. While a A PUBE DEMOCRACY la impossible, we claim to bave se lected the proper and happy medi um, but no sane man can contend that any production of human hands or human minds is absolute ly faultless. Wherever there Is room for Improvement tbero Is room for study and thought, and hence any character of festivity winch tends, even to a very llm ited extent, to direct our attention lo our defeols and transgressions Is not only profitable, but even requi site to our prosperity. If we are confined to self-laudation tbe re suit of our efforts will not be deslr able. But if a Utile honest criti cism be Indulged lv, au appeal to tbe forum of each one's conscience, a comparison of wbat we are witb wbat we ought to be, aooompanled with a desire to utilise our re searches, I doubt not tbat the gen eral tone of affairs would be far more elevated. Ido not intend to fatigue by any resume on these points, opt merely to suggest, as tersely aa possible, a few of those general subjects of rsfleetioo natu- tftmwwamr oar iMooootngs. OUR DRAWBACKS. Assuming for argument's sake that we are ruled by wisdom, It cannot bs denied that many things fre quently ocour among us which are eztiemely reprehensible. The re cords of our jails, bouses of correc tion, tbe calendars of our Courts all contribute to afford very strik ing and convincing proof of this. When our elections come arouud and certalu olasses of our citizens —too numerous alas—put their suffranes and manhood up for sale and baiter away their votes aud tbeir honors to the highest bidder for cash; wbeu our Congress and our Legislatures contain members who betray their constituents and damn thelrsßouls for a few paltry dollars; when an outraged publio is thus often and ruthlessly de ceived it wou'd be the most frigid impudence on my part to an* noui oe, evrii on the Fourth of July, that wo ate absolutely and universally pure. We bave often been taunted with tbe remark that as THE STREAM CANNOT RISE ABOVE ITS SURFACE, So publio servants will Dot ordin arily be better than those who choose them. This may be true, bat even If its accuracy bs conceded It iloes not follow that the office bolder may not be the Inferior of many of those by whose votes be was elected. It is q lite ootorlous that our Legislative seats—Slate and National —are, In numerous in stances, filled with tbe most or dinary material. The American cltig'O, in times of high political erciterneiit, will readily vote for a mau tn whom he would not trust the keys of his safe or the honor of his family. Or if. perchance, bis canifldate is honest he may be nf suoh Inferior capacity ac lo win the voter's sympathy on Charitable grounds. These are 10I1! facts. I do not say that tho remarks are universally, nor even generally ap plicable, but that such example* are common Is the dictate of each one's observation. For these rea sons It may be proper, on this Fourth nf July, to turn to these phases of our condition to bleud a small amouut of SOBER REFLECTION With the brilliancy of surrouuding display. That there iv a remedy for the ills of which I speak, there oan be no doubt. As to whether it will ever be applied is quite an other question. We place too low an estimate upon the honor of of floe. While we are scrupulously oareftil concerning our private busi ness matters, we are ludlffereut as to the character of our public serv ants. We of California are peou iiariy to blame. In tbe council halls of the nattou we have never been represented by our ablest aud best. men. Our weight In the sis terhood of States is, per conse quence, much less than it ought to be. We have combined talent and honesty enough to furnish repre sentatives wbo might successfully cross sword* with the muster minds nf the nation, Yet no advantage Is taken of the opportunity. Jeal ousy, demagogism, or some otber equally obnoxious agent allures us from our duty. It is to be hoped that further experience, ulded by the praotlcal lessons which have already been Inculcated, will in duce us to fulfil our obligations lo a more patriotic manner. The speaker then made an ex tended comparison of the condition of our country with that of otber leading governments, concluding that, notwithstanding the evils which beset us, ours Is altogether the most desirable. Concluding his address, be said: THE CALAMITY WE DEPLORE. Fellow citizen?, under ordinary oiroumstanoes, lv view of the pres ent condition of the atmosphere, I would close my address at this point. But the events of tbe laet forty-sight hours demand some notice. For two days, and even up to this very moment, it has been a question whether we were to wear the garland insignia of rejoioing, or whether our dwellings and our persons should be druped iv tbe habilmenteof woe. The fact that the Chief Magistr ite of this Repub lic has been stricken down by tbe assassin has roused popular Indlg naiinn as It has moved the univei sal lietrt. I have not, nor bave any of you, met one man, bo lie Democrat nr H public in, wbo does not regret from the source of his divluest oiiio lon, this lamentable tratiesotioii. Some give more reas one fol their regret than others, but all are emphatic in the dec laration tbat when the bullet was direoted at the President, a blow was aimed ut the whole Atuer lean people. I huve heard a fear expressed that the o'iwariily aot might be found to contain some of the same char acteristics which have been exhib ited In the violent deaths of other rulers. But this is olaeriy a mis lake. I attaoli NO MORE SIONIFIOANOE To the attack made upon our Pres dent than I would If his Injuries had resulted'rom a railroad acci dent or other casualty. It is true that the one contains an element of malice not observable In the ntber. But at the same time the assailaut did not act as Ibe agent of any faction, any party, or any creed. If he is not absolutely In sane be carried out his treacher ous plans to satiate personal hate. Par from having auy abetters lv the deed, he is looked upon by the world as a public enemy. He has not one friend. Without a dissent ing voice he is adjudged guilty of a capital crime and the country asks a speedy execution. On the other hand, we offer up cur 00:11 --biued and most fervent prayer lo tlm Eternal Throne, ask ing of Ibe Beneficent Ruler of the universe to spare lbe ohoseu leader of this people: That he may not only be permitted to live out his term in full vigor, but thai having faithfully discharged his onerous trust he may retire front offlee enjoying through an extend er! life the consciousness of having deserved, as well as received, the gratitude of every advooate of lib eral institutions. At tbe oonolusion of Mr. White's address tbe assemblage gave three hearty obeers for Ibe Governmeut aid three obeers for Confldenoe Engine Company, to whom was due tbe oredit of the celebration. Tbe orowd tben dispersed. In tbe evening several bonfires wen lighted along tbe main thor oughfares. OoDsMenoa Kngine bouse was Illuminated to tbe very top of tbe flsgstall over the belfry. There was a considerable display of fireworks during the evening, numberless sky rockets aod Unman candles being tired. There was also a closing salute on Captain Mo Grain's anvil. We bear of no seri ous aocldents or casualties occurr ing during the day. Flag Presentation at San Fernando. Editor Herald: The glorious Fourth has blared upon us; we've given tbe dear old flag Its due; our country's glory has received its "three times three,"—all two day* ahead of the rest of the world—the usual asoendancy at Ban Fernando —and our coo uoo natal day has been wafted on to less devoted shrines. Triple glory was meted us by the presentation of a beauti ful flag to tbe citizens of San Fer nando, on our day of days, by tbe ladles of the Temperance soolety in this plaoe. Tbe presentation and ball oame off as aonounosd. Tbe committee's pains and the people* patriotism were standing pledges for a graud time, which, however, eclipsed the highest strung expec tations. Visitors were present from Los Angeles, Newhall aud Pomo na, and all professed full surprise witb a surplus of eDjoynient. About 8:81) the meeting was called to order by ex-Senator Ma clay and, on motion, Mr. B. F. Porter was called to tbe Chair. C VV. Campbell and H. VV. Gris wold were eleoted Secretaries, after which the Chairman called upon tbe "True Blues,'' who responded with excellent music, Mrs. Gris wold presiding at the organ. Tben followed Uiu preseutation, by Miss Katie Maolay, of the new aud beautiful flag, ami as beauty and eloquence bade tbe stars and stripes float over us, three rousing cheers went up to greet tbe pride of the world—tbe red, white and blue Miss Maclay's presentation speech was as follows: 1 There ura periods in the life of every persoD fraught with more than ordinary magnitude. The present, to me, is uue of those peri ods. There is uovemblem so inspir iug and touching to the patrioiio American heart as the flag of our Uulou—the red,-white aud blue— the stars and stripes. Palsied be the band tbat attempts todefaoe or lower it from its high position In tbe affections of any who loves bis oouutry, and dumb may be tbe man, woman or child who shall at tempt to speak disparagingly of It. The associations of this grand oid banner are heaven-horn and heav- eo-bouud. Uu back to tbe time when It floated over independence Hall, in Philadelphia, as if fanned by spicy breezes from the Isle* nf tbe Blest, and under It was ratified the proclamation of freedom to the world; then was it washed and pu rified and hallowed by the BacrlU olal blood of legion devotees. This flag was honored in the revoluilou, and old Tories wbo did uot bouor it were taught to respect aud fear It In our own late war for free oom to all mankind,and the perpet uity of the best of govermeuts, It floated over every river, hay aud battlefield in tbe grandest triumph. A few years siuce our fathers spoke of tbe flag tbat hovered over them from Ueorgla far to Maine. To-day we gazs upou and honor the flag tbat la uiifuried to every bretze from tbe Elysiau groves of Florid •; from the claiiglug maoutactoiien aod myriad fleets of the Kiel; Ihe teeming plains of the Mississippi; from tbe gold fields and tbe golden fruits of this earth's summer-land, to tbe fai-nff Alaska, tbe ice-locked home of Boreas; and over all tins mighty strstoh the stars aud stripes are honored—east, west, north, south, iv valleys, ou moun tain-tops, o'er towus, cities, rivers, lakes, bays aud oceans, old glory is known and loved. There is but one banner that I would elevate above it, and that Is the 11 ig of him who was nailed lv the oross—tbe Redeemer of man kind. Tbis should and must be the highest in lhe world; but close tn tills I would nail tbe flag of the Union —long may she wave o'er our land of lreedom, no star obliter ated, no color dimmed. It is my pleasant duty now lo present tills flag iv behalf of Ibe Temperance Soulety of Biu Fer nando to tbe oitiz-us of this town and neighborhood, irrespective of creed or party. It Is a free gift and with it goes the prayer tbat Its bright stars may guide your ship of destiny s.'fe through life. Unfurl the nag of stars and stripes, And may it ever be An embie < of our nations' pride, A giory unto tbee. Fanatto hands 6hall neT be railed, Its glorious stars to sever.

Alter the response the chorus rendered "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean," which was aoßWereil by three cheers for the flan, after which Terpsiobureati festivities were indulged in until midnight, when all repaired to a most bounti ful feast spread at the hotel by mine host, tbe Immaculate Col. Barclay. When the comet faded, tbe as semblsgs broke up, all expressing themseivea as having pass,d one ot the most delightful nights of their lives and as loving more than be fore, the Glorious Fourth.
