Ideas on Progress . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
Ideas on Progress . That- the world is advancing in all that concerns its material interests , is obvious to all . Agencies , subtle , incorporeal and invisible ; are pressed into service , and are made , -with little fear of contra- ¦ diction , a connecting link between spirit and matter that is incomprehensible and inconceivable . The phenomena of spiritualism , a mundane influence so far as the hig hest and most reliable investigations can reach , shows that man s mind is brought into communion , however erratic and disordered the jnterpretation , with the physical agencies that surround us . The electric wire was no sooner laid under the . ocean , and man s voice had tviumnhed over space , than , an in voluntary anthem of praise-was shouted forth to corroborate its connexion with peace on earth and good will to men .- But has human progress in-then moralworld kept pace with these fearful and propulsive material agencies ?

Washington Territory . Description of the Country . — Natites — Atjricid * tural Advantages—Markets , ttC , &amp; c . GRAY S HABBOK , Sept . 20 , 1858 . Editor of the Farmer : —I write you from what you might say the ends of the earth . I do not feel it to be so . But this letter is penned near the mouth of of Chehalis River on Gray s Harbor , Washington Territory . I have been hero three months on a contract for surveying lands for the government . This section o £ Washington Territory was known little of by the whites until our party came here . It is true that Captain Gray , one of the early American navigators of the North Pacific visited here in early times , but it was simply a visit , and for commercial purposes , and he has not left upon record any description of the country . The harbor extends some twenty miles inland from the Pacific , has a good approachable mouth , but as it has never been surveyed , it is not possible to state the depth of its waters , though t...

The Sugar Cane Crop , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
The Sugar Cane Crop , Mr . Editor : —It seems that our whole season is to be one of mishaps and misfortunes . The rains continued so late in the spring , that we could not plant our cane seed in time . And now , ( Nov . 6 , ) when we want to work it , ( after a rain of fourteen days ) the roads are too heavy to haul and there is Eome danger of the cane souring . I hare been at your Springfielo Sugar Mill , and have made myself pretty familiar with the work there I am sure that it is a success , and that hereafter the sugar cane is to be one of our staples . But we have mueh to learn in regard to its cultivation yet . The poorest land mllhnoisis thebtstfor growing it . The land should be hi gh and dry . We want stalks possessing most saccharine . These come from diy land . To be sure they will not be as large as those raised on heavy wet land , but they will be better : and when common prairie land is to be used , it should be ridged and the cane planted on the ridges . There is no f...

Gooseberries and Currants . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
Gooseberries and Currants . Editor of the Farmer : —Last spring I obtained about a hundred gooseberry cuttings , and after trimming them and cutting them into lengths ten inches long , I planted them out in my garden , a foot apart , pressed the earth hard and close about them , and now without a single exception , as I believe , they all grew and are good plants for spring planting . It is now a fine timo to get cuttings of gooseberries and currants , and to preserve them well , bury them in the ground for setting out in spring . They should be set out as early as the ground can be put in order . Currant cuttings will grow as freely as those of gooseberries . The fruit of these plants is excellent and cost but little trouble or time to secure it in abundance . Can t oui farmers now spend three or four hours to get the cuttings ? If they are to be bought , a little money thus expended will secure a good interest . DEMPSEY .
Raspberries . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
Raspberries . Mr . Editor : I have never failed to obtain a crop of raspberries when the plants were properly cared for , whether they were the Antwerp ; the Faslolf , the Franconia , or tho raspberry which is cultivated about the country , and which I believe is a native of New Hampshire . Old plantations are not likely to do well . Those of from two to six years old , will , if taken care of . And what is the care ? Simply in the fall to lay them down and cover them with straw , litter or evergreen branches , to keep them i rom destruction by the hot sun that some times comes in February and oftcner in March , when such as are exposed to its influences breeze and thaw so often that the vitality of the stalks is nearly destroyed . If you will take the pains to protect your- plants , you can always have fruit . It is not the intensity of frcezirg , but the changes of temperature in February and March and sometimes in the early part of April that disappoints you in your anticipations...
The Wheat . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
The Wheat . Theheavy rams hav e filled the ground sowed with wheat . They may freeze up with the water on them . What then becomes of your wheat crop ? When I see large fields of wheat sown on level prairies and no attempts made to drain them , it looks to nie as if the owner was tempting Providence . It is the business of the farmer to do his duty by his lands . His experience and his reason were given him for useful purposes . If he does not use them , let him not grumble if his crops are destroyed . OBSERVER .
Ornamental Deciduous Trees , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
Ornamental Deciduous Trees , Editor of the Farmer : A few hints in regard to some of our deciduous trees , adapted to the lawn or pleasure grounds , may be of use to some of the readers of the FARMER . Among the great numbers of well known trees , there is no want of kinds to create a variety in ornamental plantations of any extent ; but for the more elegant and refined description of landscape beauty , such as the lawn or pleasure grounds , there are many new trees of recent introduction and less known , that add greatly to the finished character and deserve to be extensively planted . We shall brieflv name a few . The Cut-leaved Oak , ( Quercus fendernlulata Hctrophylla , ) a variety with deeply indented leaves ; b « t not so strikingly distinct as the beech or maple . It is , however , a very fine tree . The Cut-leaved Beech , ( Fagus Hetropliylla , } is one of the finest cut-leaved trees . It possesses the fine habit and general character of growth of the English beech , though ...
Plaut Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
Plaut Trees . Editor of the Farmer : —I think an agricultural newspaper will do most service by saying the right things in the right times . It is now the right time to plant many seeds of our forest trees . Acorns , black walnuts , hickorynuts and the seed of the ash , should be gathered and planted where you wish to have the trees grow . On prairie farms a grove near the dwelling- —not too near —would add great beauty , secure great protection against the heavy prairie winds—shield stock—add hcalthfulness —and other advantages to a farm and its occupants . What is now to be done in this matter , must be done immediately , before the frost binds the earth in chains . That man who has located on a prairie , and designs to make it his home , should not lose a single season in laying the foundation for a grove . He can do it ; he can do it without much expense ; in a few years he can enjoy his grove , and those who follow him will rise up and call him blessed . Nov . 10 . A .
The Sliuliaery . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1858
The Sliuliaery . c Editor Farmer : There is often a great mistake made in crowding small gardens with shubberry . If it is determined to have many varieties , the shrubs should be constantly cut back , and made to grow in small , snug , beautiful shape . They should not be suffered to grow at random . Pinching in the growing sprouts , and cutting them back with shears or the knife ( the knife is best ) should bo attended to in the spring , summer and fall seasons . It is not uncommon to see roses run and spread , as they will in gardens , by which wildness they disgust one of true taste , instead of pleasing , and fail to produce the best flowers . In small gardens the strong growing shrubs should have . no place . Why should the old coarse lilac be grown when a far more beautiful and neater growing and blossoming plant can be found in the Persian ? Why should the large , coarse rose bushes be found in your gardens , producing flowers once in the season , when you can have the Dutch...
