Editor Chief: Thinking perhaps a
J few lines from the land of eold would
be acceptable I will write a few. I
am at present with Mr. Eugene
Thompson, a young man from River
ton. We are taking in the west to an
advantage. Sacrameto is the first
place of much interest this side of the
Sierra Nevada. This is a beautiful city
lying 150 nuJes from the coast on the
Sacramento River. Here everything
is green and beautiful. It is a beautiful
city and a fine location foi a State
capitol. Leaving there we pass through
some fine country for a short distance,
then go into the most desolate barren
looking region in the United States for
300 miles, but towards Los Angeles we
again enter a region that might well
be called the Paradise of the earth.
Here are immense orange and lemon
groves; also, huge beds of strawberries
and cream. 1 he city of Loi Angeles is
situated on the Los Angeles river, 18
miles from the sea coast, and 35 mile
from the mountains. The valley is 25
or 20 miles wide and is certainly the
Garden of Eden. Even the historic
fig leaf is not lacking, and some of the
beautiful Eyes which can be seen at all
festive gatherings, would appear more
completely dressed were they to wear
one on their bare necks, for Washing"
ton society is highly imitated here.
Los Angeles is a city of Home 40,000
inhabitants, and also in old and his
toric city. The ditch dug by Fremont
at the time of the Mexican war, still
rcmaiiH, and two of the canon with
which lie subjugated the unruly citi
zens, still remain on the corner of the
old court house, where they wer
planted some 35 years ago. The city
was commenced in the year 1781, on
the 4th day of September, and tli3
name, Los Angeles, means city of the
angels. Only the good were intended
both are here. It now composed
mostly of Americans, there being
about 5000 Mexicans and as many
Chinese. The old adobe buildings of
the Mexicans still stand and probably
will be for a long time to come. 22
miles from this city is the yilb.ge of
San Pedro, theohipping point for Los
Angeles. Here we are now waiting
for a steamer to bear us away to San
Francisco. There is a light house here
Here is a breik water on which the
government has spent many thousands
of dollars. The flower festival at Los
Angeles was a sight seldom seen.
There were seven carloads of the finest
floweis in the land, there being 14 tons
ofpuic white hllios. 10,000 people
visited it daily for five days. Twenty,
eight electric lights were shining at
the same time in the room. The
flower season is drawing to a close,
now that the rainy season is over. The
rainy eeason commences here about
the first of December, and lasts until
April first, at the close of which all the
'finest flowers and fruits of ceitain
kinds are exhibited, It is true that the
half was never told about the wonders
of California. But, as my words are
inadequate describe it. I will close with
tho words of Joaquin Miller, "Knowest
thou the land where the lemon trees
bloom, where the gold orange groves
in the deep thickets gloom, where the
wind ever soft from the blue heaven
blows, and the groves are of laurel,
ami myrtle and rose."
"Go west, young man, go west"
II. G. Knight.
Wallack" Switch, Va., April 8.
Dkak Sik. As 1 have some relatives
and many friends in your county, it
would be a large task to communicate
with all of them. If you will be so
kind as to give space in i'our paper I
I will give a few items of this part of
Virginia. In the first place I will say
from a brief description of Nebraska I
have had through some of our Vir
ginians I am persuaded there are con
siderable advantages in your state for
a man of limited means, and equally
o for those that are not so much limit
ed financially. There is an abundance
of land in this part of our" state that
will not produce an average of ten
bushels ol corn per acre, that sells
readily at from $20 to $40 per ucie.
Corn i $ selling at 40c per bushel, and
wheat $1; bacon Sj cts per pound.
Farmers are beginning to realize that
tho hog raising business is becoming
unprofitable in this country, except
for home consumption, from the fact
that our merchants are getting vast
quantities ot bacon from the west
which they can sell at a lower price
and make a better profit than can be
made on home prodm tion. Timber is
getting to be scarce here, although we
live in the 'mountains. There are a
great many persons here using coal
for fuel and wire for fencing. I saw a
letter from uckoi Is .ounty, and one
from Butler county, Nebraska, recent
ly, in which it gave the distressing
news of a woman laving out all night
in a straw stack and getting her feet
badly frozen. Well, I can say to 'Bug
eater," as he gives that as his signature
if the woman had been here during
January ami laid out in a straw stack,
the doctors would not have had any
amputating to do, but the undertakers
would have had a job. There was a
man within three-miles of this place
had his feet badly frozen, and another
about 6 miles from here froze to death.
It tets cold enough here to freese the
horna ofi a cow, but our Januaiy snap I
beat that it froze two cows to death
horns and all. Now, Mr. Editor, I
don't want to discourage anyone thai
ban an idea of migrating to theeejparts,
OgftcisHy capitalist!, tyr that it what
Virginia need?, but I will say to those
that I am interested in, if you have
any idea of coming to Virginia, and
have not laid up plenty of skads, I say
DacKwaru, mm uacKvaru, iwur uinu
in your flight, for I tell you it is "root
hog, or die," and if you don't get about
pretty lively it will be duck or no din
ner. There arc many hard work
ing men here that would like to go
weal but they don't g t enough money
during the year to buy a ticket toj
circus. I know of several good farni
hands that worked through harvest
last -car for a half oushel of corn per
day and boarded themselves. How is
tnat for high? Now Mr. Editor I will
conclude by saying to my Virginia
friends, look out ! for I have concluded
to take Horace Greely'i advice, so you
need not be surprised at seeing a lot of
us Virginians at any time.
The Burlington Extension.
The Railway Age has the following
to say in a recent issue about the prob
able action ol the Burlington road:
"The Chicago, Burlington fc Quincy
Company appears to have decided to
push t-eetward from Denver. Colorado,
into the Middle Park ot the Kocky
Mountains, reaching Aspen and other
mining camps, and it is also believed
that it intends to push on into Utah
If this is the case it seems to indicate
the determination by this company to
eventually have a line to the Pacific
coast. The Burlington is also propos
ing to push into Kansas and beyond
by a line from Red Cloud, Nebraska,
southwesterly through that state,
thence across the corner of La Ani
mas county, Colorado, and on through
New Mexico by the way of La? Vegas
and it is said Santa Fe. This route
would bring it in direct competition
with the Atchison, Topeka fc Santa Fe
and put an end doubtless to the form
erly friendly relations of these com
panies and would perhaps result in the
Atchison company extending its own
line from Kansas City to Chicago."
