COTTON IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

COTTON IN CALIFORNIA. We place before our readers the following letter from Col. P. B. Reading, of Cottonwood, upon the culture of cotton. It has appeared in some of our journals, and was addressed to Judge Heydenfeldt. The arguments are forcible and lucid and cannot but carry conviction to the mind of the reader, of the ultimate success of this great staple production of this State. Col. Reading is bo well and favorably known, and his influence in favor of everything that tends to advance the interests of the State, so well understood, that his statements will carry weight wherever and whenever presented. We trust they will not only turn the attention of the cultivators of the soil to the importance of the subject treated, but also cause our legislators to consider how and in what manner they can so legislate as to give encouragement to, and assist forward to a speedy introduction of. this and other new and important products into the State. We trust the public will hear often from...

FATTENING ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

FATTENING ANIMALS. There are certain principles which apply to the feeding of all animals, which we will briefly notice. 1. The breed is of great importance. A well bred animal not only affords less waste, but has the meat in the right places, the fiber is tender and juicy, und the fat is put on just where it is wanted. Compare the hind leg of a full-bloom Durham ox, and a common one. The bone at the base of the tail extends much further in the former, affording more room for flesh, and the thigh swells out of convex or circular shape; while in the common ox it falls in, dishing and hollow. Now the " round " is the most valuable cut, and is only found in perfection in high-bred stock. The same is the case over the whole body. So well do eastern butchers understand this that their prices are regulated by the breed, even where two animals are equally fat. They know that in a Durham or Hereford ox, not only will there be less offal in proportion to weight, but the greatest quantity of ...

AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENTS. John Uaynolds, in a communication to the Concord Farmer's Club, says—Agriculture, being the mother of the arts, and the chief reliance of civilized man for the means of subsistence, and its operations having been, in a great degree, dependent upon the application of muscular strength, it has naturally followed that man's inventive genius has been more or less engaged, during the last half century, in the improvement of machinery, and all the implements of farm husbandry. In our country this spirit of improvement, this constant striving for something better, has perhaps been more apparent than in any other part of the world, and has been attended with better and happier results. One of the evidences of this is, that during the last year one hundred and fourteen patents have been granted for agricultural implements, twenty-seven of which were for harvesters, power reapers, mowers, Ac. Agricultural organizations and cattle shows, serve to awaken the attention o...

TO MAKE A COW GIVE DOWN MILK. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

TO MAKE A COW GIVE DOWN MILK. The inquiry in the American Agriculturist, 8 what will make a cow give down her milk ?" reminded me of an incident in my own experience, We have a fine cow, which goes by the name of Whitey, on account of her color. She gives a large quantity of milk, and of superior quality. Her only fault is, that she is rather too intelligent, and knows too well how to look out for her own interests. She is evidently in favor of bovine rights, and has no idea of submitting, against her judgment, to the control of man and woman. She can let down the bars of the pasture very nicely, if there are no precautions taken to prevent it; and if the fence is not " legal," she does not consider it worthy her regard. She understands the mysteries of latches and hooks; and. if she has a calf to look after, she knows very well how to retain a sufficient portion of her milk for its nourishment. Bridget had been with us several weeks, and I had always given her particular instructio...

Reader! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

Reader! Do you feel an interest in the permanency of California ? Do you desire tc see an increase of population —more families coming to our shores — more houses built —more farms cultivated —more manufactories and workshops reared? Do you wish to see the mechanic, merchant, and farmer, cheerful, contented and prosperous? Do you wish to see churches and schools established, and the whole population under an influence that speaks only for good ? If you wish all this, then you must take measures to effect it, and the first step is, to enlighten the people in the old States as to the real condition, prospects, resources and capabilities, oj California. When the people of the old Stutes are correctly informed upon these matters, then we shall have an increase of population and of the right kind too. We shall have eastern families, and the most intelligent—we shall have more "homes" built —more farms cultivated—and better too. We shall have our manufactories, workshops, and warehouses—a...

California vs. New York Grain Market. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

California vs. New York Grain Market. That one may form a true estimate of the value of grain in California, or the price it will soon command, the value in the eastern markets should serve as some guide. For this purpose we place before our readers the simple data per last steamer from the east, of the price of wheat and flour of the best quality, in the New York market, —best Geeesee white wheat, $2.45 per bushel. Allowing the bushel to weigh GO lbs., it is over four cents per pound. Best brands of flour, $1125 and $12 00. This is the present price there, and with the market firm and largely increasing exports to foreign markets, can it reasonably be expected that flour will be sent to California from the east? The present advance in grains in California is a real and immediate benefit to tho producer, and a permanent gain to the State. It keeps our money at home instead of going abroad, and thereby adds so much to the wealth of our State. We consider the true police of the farmer...

Artesian Wells. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

Artesian Wells. " Deep Artesian Well. —George H. Beach, Esq., of Marysville, has dug a well 210 feet without striking water. He was about abandoning the experiment, but the citizens there propose to raise $1,000 more to continue it until water is obtained. We hope they will not let such an enterprise fail for the want of a little money, as if water is reached and flows in sufficient quantities, the city and each of its inhabitants will be benefitted twenty times the cost of the well." We clip the above from one of our exchanges, and, ever feeling a deep interest in all that appertains to this subject, we have made some inquiry, and learn that there is a prospect of finding water. The party that commenced the well, Messrs. Smith & Van Dyne, bored some 100 feet, and were then superceded by other parties, who, it seems, have also abandoned it for a time. This is to be regretted, for such efforts should never cease. Persevere is the word, for the water is below. It is always...

Tea in Ohio. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

Tea in Ohio. We copy the following from our exchanges and make the inquiry of our own readers —If Tea can be cultivated successfully in Ohio, why can it not be cultivated in California ? The soil and climate, the atmosphere, seasons, temperature — all are mush more congenial and favorable than Ohio, and we suggest to our readers to ask themselves and neighbors the question we propound. We wait a reply. "The horticulturists of Southern Ohio, are among the most enterprising and successful in the country. They have brought the grape to a perfection no where else equalled. Their wines, " Sparkling Catawba," &c, are widely exported. The culture of tea has attracted attention. It is stated in the Cincinnati Columbian, that a number of Chinese are now engaged in that pursuit, in the neighborhood of that city." The Sacramento Valley Railroad Co., has petitioned the council of that city for the right of running cars by steam through the city to the levee ; also, for an exemption ...

PROTECTION OF GAME AND STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

PROTECTION OF GAME AND STOCK. Saw Miguel Rancho, Jan. 9th, 1855. Messrs. Editohs: —Upon mature consideration and calculation, I am constrained to stick to my former figures, and would sooner double them than take one head therefrom. I recollect, about six or seven years ago, when I was doing only a small business at farming and unable to protect my stock, I was robbed yearly of some 600 head of pigs and chickens, and I never thought that there were more than six cayotes concerned in the robbery. At that rate 100 head per year, was devoured by each animal, and a scant supply it was too. I am informed by one our frontier rancheros, that he has known 15 cows destroyed by one grizzly bear. What the number of smaller delicacies devoured by his bearship to fill up his yeart supply was, was not known. Bruin was afterward killed, and eight inches of clear fat was cut from his ribs, proving conclusively that he had lived on the i; fat of tho land." Some of the large rancheros have from 500 t...

An Indian Mummy. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

An Indian Mummy. To the Editor of the California Farmer: Dear Sir: During my recent geological explorations in Washington Territory, I visited an Indian graveyard, on the claim of Capt. Russell, Shoalwater Bay, where my attention was called to the body of an Indian in an extraordinary state of preservation. It was enclosed in a small covered canoe, inside a larger one; the outside canoe in a state of decay, showing the great length of time that had elapsed since its burial. It was very evident that the body had not been disturbed since its interment. Full reliance may be placed in any statement Capt. Russell may make on the subject. Respectfully, John Evans, U. S. Geologist. At the invitation of Capt, Russell, we have examined the body of the Indian he has brought from Shoalwater Bay, Washington Territory, and have full confidence in the veracity of his statements. The remarkable preservation of the specimen renders it an object of great interest and value, as it illustrates far mor...

Commerce of Shoalwater Bay. The annexed statement has been carefully prepared by Capt. Russell, of Shoalwater Bay, at the request of Government. It shows the importance and value of the trade that is springing up in that quarter and finding its way into our ports ; this is but the beginning. Capt. Russell is one of our early and most enterprising shipmasters, and his energy, perseverance, and trials among the Indian tribes in that quarter, would form a romantic history.

Combination Again. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

Combination Again. We have often spoken of combinations and their influences, and have seen them beneficial to a people, and have seen them otherwise. We now have upon our mind a new and useful combination —one that, as far as it has developed itself, has most generally proved useful, and is highly approved of by our entire community. We allude to the Sacramento Stage Company, under the control of their able and efficient president and manager, Jas. Birch, Esq, The whole operations of this company have been completely successful from the beginning, Although having control of many extensive routes—absolute power, as it were —that power was most wisely used, not to M make a pile " to-day, and lose it to-morrow; but with a wise foresight, a looking to the future, this company met the wants of tho public, sought to win their approbation and confidence by a generous and liberal course, and, instead of advancing the price, they reduced it, and by such means they have won golden opinions, ...

Belgium Agricultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 18 January 1855

Belgium Agricultural Society. The first National Agricultural Exhibition of the Central Society of Agriculture, was held in Brussels on the 2.5 d, 24th, and 25th of September. The exhibition was much superior to any exhibition of cattle before held in Belgium. The competition for stock, was confined to Belgium ; but for implements, to the world. We observe that an American plow received a commendation. Another year will, probably, witness a large display of American implements, as the demand for them for the Continent is on the increase. The exhibition of 1854. took place in the centre of the city, in a building called St. Establissement dv Kenard, well covered and lighted by numerous windows in the roof. The building is divided by walls and columns, into ten compartments, all in communication with one another. The length is about one hundred yards, and breadth eleven. All the articles except pigs, were exhibited in the compartments. The pigs alone were placed outside in the court b...

" Knowleoge is power," is a truth nowhere more fully illustrated than in the field of your enterprise ; and on no part of that field more important than in our State. In other States and different climates, the experience of ages is condensed into books; and the son inherits the practical knowledge of his father.
