AGRICULTURAL, &c. Pitt's Double Pinion Eight or Ten Horse Powr. THIS Horse Power, as now manufactured by the subscriber, is admitted by those who huve purchased and ueed it, to surpass, for strength, ease, durability and cheapness of repair, any Power ever ottered to the public Their great superiority over other powers, consists in the ! plan ot construction. It will be teen that this Horse Power is ' just double the strength of any single geared power, and is the only real Double Pinion Power in existence. Notwithstanding it is sufficiently strong and warranted to stand the full strength of eight or ten horses, it is also warranted \ to "ire as much effective or useful power, when driven by one ! or two horses, as any other power, whether constructed on the endless chain or lever principle.

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

HOME. AARON SMITH. There is a simple little word— Oh! ne'er its charm destroy— Throughout the universe 'tis heard, And nowhere but with joy : There's music in its magic flow Wherever we may roam, The dearest, sweetest sound below; That little word is Home. The soldier in tlie battle's hum May all things else forget; 'Mid by'nets' flash, and beat of drum, His home's rcmember'd yet. The exile, doom'd on foreign lands Through hopeless years to toil, May do the despot's stern commands, Tet sighs for home the while. I care not whore may be its site, Or roofd with straw or tile, So that the hearth-fire bums more bright 'Neath woman's radiant smile : Affection on her fondest wing Will to its portals fly, And hope will far more sweetly sing When that blest place is nigh. It may be fancy, it may be Something far nobler—far; But Love is my divinity, And Home my polar star. Oh I sever not home's sacred ties ; They are not things of air; The great, the learned, and the wise, All had their train...

How to Catch Dusks.—The duck season being close at hand, we will give a receipt for getting any number of fine fat ones. It is necessary in the first place, to supply yourself with a belt, with hooks at intervals of half an inch all round. Then get a large bushel basket, the interstices between the plaiting of it being very large These are all the weapons and amunitions necessary, if we except a bottle of " Cognac, 1814." The next thing to do is to go where ducks most docongrcgii'e. Put the basket over your head and wade leisurely into the water until it reaches the armpits. The basket will then appear to be floating on the surface of the water. Walk slowly down among the ducks, and they, thinking it some floating drift wood, will cluster round it without alarm. Then reach your hands out under the edge of the basket and seize the unfortunate ducks by the legs, pull them under water suddenly, and hang them by the feet on the hooks for that use made and provided; the interstices in th...

MEDICAL. IT IS A FIXED FACT, CONSUMPTION CAN BE CUBED! SIR JAMES CLARK, Physician to W «BSggT Queen Victoria, and m t' the moat J learned and skillful men of the Bge, in f hi- "Treatise" on Consumption, says: ( "Tlmt Pulmonary Consunaptlon admits of a cure, is no longer a mutter of doubt ; J -»Su—E3t ' mJ clearly demonstrated by the researches of Lumnoc and other patholoiSC ~ ) *mwi£iz£\ gists." Dr. < !arswell, who investigated Stsitmnmmummmmmmmi gucn matters probably as thoroughly as any man, says : " Pathological anatomy has, perhaps, never afforded more conclusive evidence in proof of the curability of a disease than it has in that of tubercular phthisis," (pulmonary consumption.) It Is no Fiction. These statements are made by men who have demonstrated what they say, time after time, in the crowded hospital, and in the truth teliins dissecting room. They are from men who have no possible motive for publishing what is untrue, or emblazoning falsehoods. The. Remedy which...

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 6. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 July 1855

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 6. On Watering of Plants—Continued. Editors Farmer : That there is an analogy between plants and animals, every one perceives; but yet, with many points of resemblance, there is, among others, one striking particular in which they differ. Animals, at all times, inhale oxygen, and, at all times, exhale carbonic acid gas: while plants, by day, inhale carbonic acid gas, and exhale oxygen. Thus, the one is admirably contrived to neutralize any disarrangement of the atraosp iertc elements, which might otherwise have taken place, had it existed alone. To make animals have an inherent heat in themselves, they are furnished with absnrbi»nt.s anrl nnnrluitn, by means of which they take up carbon from their food, and through which it is carried and mingled with their blood ; and the blood, so charged, coming into contact with the oxygen of the atmosphere in the lungs, undergoes partial decomposition, producing heat, and carbonic acid gas is thrown off as a necessary co...

Virgil on Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 July 1855

Virgil on Agriculture. Ark aim a, Mo., March, 1855. Mr. Abbott—Sir :— At the suggestion of a friend, t have translated some of Virgil's first Georgia, where he gives us his opinion or rather his system of cultivating land—not for adoption, of course, but for the gratification of those who wish to compare the state of agriculture in the height of Roman prosperity, and the present. If you think it will do an}' good by familiarizing any of your readers with the science of their calling (for I deem agriculture a science, and the chief one to be chosen for happiness,) I say if you think it likely to do good and feel so disposed, you can give it a place in your excellent and highly useful periodical. Ido not give it as an elegant translation, but almost literally and as intelligibly as may be. After invoking the several deities, &c, he thus begins : " Very early in the spring when the melted snow flows from the hoary mountains, and the mellow earth crumbles at zephyrs—even the...

Circular. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 July 1855

Circular. The Executive Committee of the State Agricultural Society, beg leave to say to the Agriculturists of the State that as the time for holding the Annual Fair approaches the necessity for increased and energetic action throughout the State, becomes, daily, more apparent. The officers of the Society are giving their time, attention and money to the furtherance of the work, but this will not suffice. Unless the Farmers, Merchants, Lawyers. Hotel Keepers and all others interested (and who is not?) come up to our aid, subscribe and pay their memberships and give countenance to the work, our approaching Fair cannot be made what it should be — cannot be what the resources of our State call for, what the honor of this most prominent interest demands. > The State has made commendable appropriations for premiums, and the Executive Committee has published a schedule for the approaching Exhibition, and it is hoped that we may be placed in circumstances to show full statistics...

The Grasshopper—Ghryllida. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 July 1855

The Grasshopper—Ghryllida. Believing that everything relating to the history, character and habits of this most destructive animal will be interesting to our readers, we have taken some pains to gather from writers and from old records such data as may be relied upon; and as our climate is of such a character as to be subject to these visitations, it is of great importance that we set about in earnest to provide a remedy for this great and growing evil. The Locusts of Egypt, the Harvest Fly of France, and the Grasshopper of the United States are, if not the same insect, all alike in their character, habits, and destructive properties. Equally alike they flourish in a hot and dry climate; equally and alike avoid cold and damp latitudes, or if found there, it is for a short time, and only when driven by want of food from the latitudes in which they flourish. That among other trials to which the cultivator of the soil in California may be subjected, the periodical visitation of this pl...

The Grasshopper Plague. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 July 1855

The Grasshopper Plague. The following facts can be relied upon, having received them from such sources as leave no question of their correctness. We hope cultivators in all parts of the State, and especially where these devastators have been felt this year, will examine the coming winter and see if the same thing occurs again. Remember! Wherever the floods covered th* soil and remained a little time, no grasshoppers appear. Remember! They rarely or never are found in shaded grounds, or damp and wet localities. Remember! They are destroyed by winter plowing—deep sub-soil plowing. Plow deep and bring up their eggs to the action of the wintry storms, and you will lessen if not wholly destroy them. In many of the older States they havo been found embeded in clay below the surface, and around the trees, thus seeking shelter—while in the dormant state and the egg—from the severity of the storm, remaining there until their time of re-appearing. We have made many inquiries, and from those w...

Permanent Location of the California State Agricultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 July 1855

Permanent Location of the California State Agricultural Society. Messrs. Editors: You may be aware that the recent effort to establish rooms, a museum, a library, head-quarters, a home, for the State Agricultural Society, has created a fear that a design exists to "monopolise the whole thing, with its successive annual fairs, for Sacramento." Now, as one with whom the idea originated, and who has labored second to none in its realization thus far, I wish most distinctly to disavow any such intention or wish. Nothing could be further from the desires of the present management of the Society. I hesitate not to say that ( there is not a single cultivator of the soil, or friend of Agriculture in this valley, who would consent to such a thing. Every intelligent culturist knows that the annual fairs of such a society must be held successively in different sections of the State, or the great objects of its organization can never be obtained. Every part of the State must have, in its turn, ...
