Havilah, Kern County, PO 45 miles north east of Bakersfield, and until recently the county seat, is on Clear Creek, a small stream entering Kern River from the south, and is the center of quite an extensive mining district, Communication is had by daily stage with the railroad at Tipton, Tulare City, near Visalia, and Bakersfield.

Since the removal of the county seat mining is the only resource, and in this its prospects are of the finest character. Being in a deep canon in the mountains, the difficulty of access, and its position, far in the interior, have been great obstacles to its advancement, but this is in a great measure overcome by the construction of the San Joaquin Valley Railroad, and the mines of Havilah are coming into notice.

Some very valuable quartz veins are known to exist, among which are the "Bright Star," owned by H. Bahten & Bros., the "Bella Union," owned by Hamel & Denker, and the "New World," owned by K. Henry and others, which have been worked with good results.

Hueneme, Ventura County, PO 12 miles east south east of San Buenaventura. Point Hueneme, or Conversion, on the northeast, with the island of Anacapa on the southwest, form the southeastern entrance to Santa Barbara channel. At the Point is a singularly located and formed harbor, a deep submarine valley being close to the shore, while the landing is exposed to the winds and waves of the Pacific, which fortunately are ever gentle. Being an important landing and shipping point for the produce of the Santa Clara River Valley, the United States Government has established a lighthouse here, whose latitude is 34 deg. 08 min. north, and longitude 119 deg. 09 min. west. A substantial wharf, extending 1,200 feet into the open ocean, has been constructed, at which steamers and sailing vessels land in safety. The productive soil contributory to Hueneme extends for twenty miles along the shore, and much further into the Interior. Excellent water is obtained by artesian wells, one of which, within 100 yards of the sea, raises a column of water through a seven-inch pipe to the height of eighty feet.
