The Star of the 16th says that Los Angeles county is in a state of insurrection, and threatened to be literally overrun by thieves and murderers unless they are suppressed by the populace. A meeting of citizens was held on the 15th, and a band of volunteers organized to take the field against the desperadoes. Benjamin D. Wilson, Esq., took command of the party. Another company had also been organized in a different part of the county to co-operate with them.

Los Diablos. — A band of robbers was in Santa Barbara last week, where they knocked down and attempted to rob Mr. Stedman and another person. They then stole two horses which were standing saddled before a citizen's door, and fled from the city. Sheriff [William W.] Twist and a posse pursued them, and traced them to the neighborhood of the Cahuenga rancho, in this [Los Angeles] county. On the road from Santa Barbara they committed a number of robberies. At the Santa Clara river they stole two horses from Juan Sanchez; meeting a horseman on the road they compelled him to dismount, tied him, and took away his horse; at the rancho Gamulos [sic: Camulos] they stole two horses and most brutally maltreated the major domo [ranch foreman], a man named Valenzuela, tying his feet up to his head, in which position he remained all night. This gang of robbers is still in the county. — Star, 16th.
