To our Readers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 June 1855

To our Readers. Wb would most respectfully call the attention of our readers and all interested in the cause, which this journal pleads, to the card of the Executive of the State Agricultural Society, which appears in this day's issue. There is a work before us which we have long desired to perform —the examination of the practical Agriculture of California. Most earnestly do we wish to meet the Cultivators of the soil upon their own ground—to see them at work—to sec the true conditon of the crops, the acres under cultivation, and the condition and character of each crop—to look at, examine closely, and report truly, the prospect of the coining harvest of the great staples of California. But this is no small or easy task ; it is a Herculean labor, but one that can be made easy and pleasant by the generous co-operation oC those who are now engaged in the practical duties of Agriculture. We wish not only to examine the grain fields and potato fields, but orchards, nurseries, greenhous...

Agricultural Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 June 1855

Agricultural Exhibition. June, the month of roses, is ever hailed by those who love horticulture and floriculture, as the fairest and brightest month of the year. The first Saturday in June is the bright opening of Flora's gala days in the New England States ; for May has an embargo of east winds and chilly days that holds the goddess in check till the bright " Movith of Roses," June. Thus the California State Agricultural Socioty, wishing to commemorate this fragrant month. have commenced a serious of exhibitions, which give promise of much interest and pleasure, not only to the citizens of Sacramento, where these exhibitions are held, but to many others from all parts of State, who contribute of their products and who may chance to be at tho capital during the exhibition days. The Society having announced these displays to be held semi-monthly, the first came off on Saturday last, and although the notice had been but short it was well attended.

The Press of Sacramento and Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 June 1855

The Press of Sacramento and Agriculture. One of the*evidences of the influence of Agriculture is seen in the interest that is now evinced in its behalf by the press of Sacramento. So many evidences arc being daily presented to the minds of all. of the beneficial results of the cultivation of the soil, that the press can no longer withhold in giving it a true position. The whole press of Sacramento speaks its value to that city. The numerous gardens, the luscious fruits, the fragrant flowers—these demand a tribute of praise, and we rejoice to have them duly recognized. A double good is accomplished when a portion of the columns of a political journal is occupied in speaking of these beautifiers of our homes; these strong advocates of industry, of health, peace and prosperity. The press of Sacramento have very promptly and generously urged the subject upon the attention of their readers, in repeated notices, since the announcement of thp proposed opening of the State Society's Rooms a...

Examples Worthy of Imitation. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 June 1855

Examples Worthy of Imitation. The Exhibitions of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society have ever been a source of pride to every member, a source of gratification to the citizens, and an honor to the State. The Annual Shows have always been the great gatherings of the lovers of nature and her handiworks, and these Exhibitions have always been attended by the most intellectual and wealthiest citizens —and not only attended, but encouraged and sustained by them. The wise and good have liberally contributed, and it has been by such encouragement that this Society has reached its present proud and exalted position, and can now wield a mighty influence for good in developing the resources of mind and matter. By referring to the Annual Report of the Treasurer of that Society, we find the following estimate of its property: Original purchase and Hall - $3G 000 Additional purchase, - 12,000 Furniture and Library, ... 4,000 Appleton Fund, .... I^oo Lyman Fund, 1.000 Bradlee Fund, .... I^OO...

Disease in Roses. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 June 1855

Disease in Roses. San Francisco, Mny 28, 1855. Messrs. Eoitors: I wish to ask your advice concerning a singular fatality which has attended my efforts to raise a few roses to relieve the barren waste of brick and plank in this plate. 1 had four thrifty plants five weeks ago. Now I have two left, and the other two (before the healthiest of all) are on their last legs, apparently. Let me detail the process of destruction: They are in pots and are placed in a window facing south; they were the recipients of close attention, were well watered and entirely free from any visible insects. About April 17, the leaves began to curl up as if frost-bitten —soon the largest leaves and leaf stems dropped off. then the others; the disease stripping first the old wood and leaving for a while the fresh shoots from the root. These suffered next; the disease here beginning at the root and ascending to the top. At last, in the short space of about two weeks, the plants had not a leaf on them. They then...

Indian Settlements—Agricultural Developments—Civilization—Government Appropriations, &c, &c. The vast amount of moneys appropriated for California, on her public works and in her varied departments, is often the subject of newspaper criticism The large amount expended at our Indian reservations, and of which so much has been said and written the last year, and the wrong done to a gentleman of great worth —(Lieut. Bcal) who had charge of these departments, and under whose administration great improvements were made—has induced us to make inquiries and know if in reality there has been any good accomplished. It is a source of very great pleasure in the commencement of such a work to learn that Lieut.

THE FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 June 1855

THE FLOWERS. Strong Wisdom framed this world of ours, Rich goodness formed the herb nnd tree j But love and Beauty made the flowers, — Or so it seems to me. From heaven they brought their tissues bright, Earth hath no drugs such tints to dye; And formed the petals, in the light Of Beauty's laughing eye. And Love and Beauty, as they wrought, Joyed o'er their work, so wonl'rous fair j And each its breath of fragrance caught, From sweet words uttered there. The little cherubs, hovering by, Crept each to some sweet blossom's breast, At d closed their bright wings, lovingly, Like song birds in the nest. And still they braided buds and flowers, And Eden grew so sweet and fair, That loftiest seraphs loved the bowers, And God himself walked there. When sin invaded Eden's bowers, All high and holy angels fled, But, nestled in their favorite flowers, The loving cherubs stayed. And now by mountain, shore, and grove, Beside the palace and the tomb, Still breathing out their souls of love, The b...

My Confession. fierce fury of temper: his sin, but also how unintentional"; his atonement. And then, in the depth of his agony, he turned to implore her forgiveness. She said, weeping, " she forgave him: it was a grievous crime—grievous, deadly—but you have expiated it. You have repented in deed by selfsubjugation, and by unwearied labors of mercy and good among your fellow men, and do forgive you. my friend, as Herbert's spirit would forgive you! And," in a gayer tone, :i my beloved husband, who will return to mo to-day, will bless you too for preserving his wife, as I bless you for preserving me to him." The darkness fell from him as she kissed his hand. Yet it still shades his life; but as a warning, not as a curse —a mournful past, not a destroying present. Charity and active good among our fellow men can destroy the power oi sin within us; and repentance in deeds—not in tears, but in the life-long efforts of a resolute man — can lighten the blackness of a crime, and remove tho ...
