Oranges and lemons in California.

--The attempt to grow oranges and lemons in California is every year becoming more successful. The principal groves are at Los Angeles, where there are half a dozen men engaged in the business. Oranges are grown in other places in the State, but mainly in gardens and for private use. There were about 60,000 oranges and 30,000 lemons grown last year at Los Angeles. This year nearly 100,000 oranges and 40,000 lemons have been raised in that vicinity. The oranges grown this year are larger and in every way better than last year's crop, and sold at the grove at three dollars per hundred. The largest growers are two Frenchmen at the Mission San Gabriel, whose crop last year amounted to about 25,000 oranges, beside a quantity of lemons.
