Circular. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 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 of Farms, Orc...

The City of Oakland. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

The City of Oakland. There is probably no locality upon the Pacific coast for a beautiful city, superior to that of the sister city of our Commercial Emporium—Oakland, or the " City of Oaks." Nature seems to have intended this location for a luxurious retreat of the business a great commercial emporium, and we believe at no distant day. the mercantile and commercial men, bankers, and others, of San Francisco, will have their residences at Oakland. The soil is of the very best character, and susceptible of the highest cultivation. Among the many localities for beautiful homes, we havo seen none that present greater or more favorable prospects of future permanence. It is deeply to be regretted that any delay- in the settlement of land titles should retard the rising and improvement of this city, so highly favored by nature. We would most urgently cry out to all who have a love of the beautiful, " Woodman ! spare that tree !" and apply it to one and all. Those noble oaks, let them all ...

Bucknen Ranch—Stockton Road. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Bucknen Ranch—Stockton Road. On Saturday last, we took a trip on the Stockton road, to view the several farms and ranches of that vicinity, and, at the request and invitation of Judge Bucknen and other agricultural friends, to have a social talk over the interests which this journal advocates. We drove directly to the residence of the Judge, and in the evening met the farmers and ranch owners of that vicinity, and in the new building where the festivities of the 4th of July were held, we advocated the cause of Agriculture and the coming State Fair, and those kindred interests which grow out of them. We were pleased to meet so many that seemed to be truly interested in the cause. By request, we remained over the Sabbath, to meet the citizens of that neighborhood and again addressed them at the School House, on Sunday evening. Our theme being ,; the Beneficial Influence of Agriculture upon the Homes of California and the blessings it confers," we v/ere gratified to have present so man...

Hicks' Dairy Ranch. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Hicks' Dairy Ranch. The value of our Dairies, their extent, or the influence they are destined to exert upon our trade and commerce,cannot be estimated or conceived without a personal inspection. During our trip to tho Consumnes river and the neighboring Ranches the past and present week, we visited this famous and justly esteemed Ranch. Hick's Ranch is situated upon the banks of the Cosumnes river, about twenty miles from Sacramento city. Crossing the river by a strong and handsome bridge erected by the public spirited proprietor of this ranch at his own cost, you emerge through a fine grove of oaks to the beautiful and fertile grounds that surround the residence of the proprietor—a handsome mansion, full of the comforts of life, convincing you that it was intended as a home. Around it is a well cultivated garden, containing a variety of the most desirable kinds of vegetables, fruits and flowers, grapes and peaches in full bearing; and roses, dahlias, and other flowers beautify the...

Sacramento No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Sacramento No. 1. Sacramentans : As conductors of a public journal, as conductors of the only Agricultural Journal on the Pacific coast, as friends and advocates of ' home industry," embracing as it does the Agriculture, and its kindred interests, of our country ; these giving life and animation, vigor and success to manufacturers and the mechanic arts and these again giving a healthful support to our mercantile and commercial interests —we shall endeavor to show in succeeding numbers that the cause of the prosperity which now dawns upon this city results from this simple cause: the advance of her Agricultural interests: for Sacramento stands No. 1 in the State in this respects. We shall endeavor to show conclusively, also, that our citizens are those who, in a great degree, have been indentilied with all her history from the beginning, and that they have labored to build up and sustain the homes of their adoption ; that it is this untiring perseverance and industry, and consecratio...

Grasshoppers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Grasshoppers. This devastating scourge has generally swept the entire Sacramento valley of all garden vegetables, and many surrounding counties have fared bad; so much so that it will be difficult to supply readily the demand for vegetables. San Francisco market will feel the influence of this in an increased demand for garden products. We have received information of much damage to the fine gardens and ranches in Yuba county, and as we intend to examine them personally, we shall give a report of some. We know Messrs. Briggs, Brach, Sheppard, Wickersham, Swazey and others, have sulfered largely, and we intend to examine particularly tho ravages and all appertaining them. In tho " old countries" the people of the villages turn out, and gathering all the tin pans and kettles, they drum them effectually out of their grounds. We have heard of experiments here of various kinds —fire crackers, pebbles, dust, &c, and shall note all. Agricultural Books. — Among the many' aids to...

The New Kiln Dryer—inquiries. Jult 10th, 1855. Editors Farmer ; What of the Kiln Dryer t Has tho company you spoke of been organized ? As I see nothing in the paper in relation to it, I presume it is not jet completed. I have reIcently learned that capitalists in the East are ready to furnish funds to carry on this drying business in all its branches, if men here are unwilling to embark in an enterprise that would most certainly yield them a larger profit than any other investment they could possibly make in the country. There is capital enough here, can it not be enlisted in a work promising so rich a reward ? S—*.

Is Pear Culture Profitable? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Is Pear Culture Profitable? This is a question that cannot be answered properly in a few words, yet we are over and over again requested to answer it within the limits of a brief letter. We propose, therefore, to devote a short chapter to the subject now, in order to avoid the necessity of frequent and unsatisfactory replies hereafter. Looking at the question in the abstract, we can say, without the slightest hesitation, that pear culture, for market, is profitable. Land of the finest quality for the purpose, situated in the finest fruit-growing districts of the United States, and of easy access to the best markets, can be purchased for from $50 to $100 per acre—varying with the value of the improvements, in the way of buildings, condition of the land, contiguity to railway stations, Ac This is one great point settled, —good cheap land, in a favorable climate, and all desirable facilities for marketing the crops at any season of the year. As to the prices of pears, we need say but l...

The Jenny Lind Seedling Strawberry. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

The Jenny Lind Seedling Strawberry. Mr. Joseph Beck, of Boston, Mass., gives in a communication to the Rochester (N. V..) Horticulturist, the following information relative to this species of the strawberry: " There are so many new things constantly brought up before the horticultural world, and so much humbug about a great majority of them, that it is with some diffidence I present to the public a description of the Jenny Lind Seedling Strawberry. It has been exhibited for three successive seasons in the Massachusetts Horticultural Society's rooms, and the writer, a member \)f the Fruit Committee, has had frequent opportunities to test it with other varieties. It is entirely distinct from any other sort in cultivation here. It possesses many excellences, and, in my humble opinion, is worthy of general cultivation. One of our first confectioners, who deals largely in ice creams, and who has used this as well as other varieties of Strawberries to flavor them with, says it is the best...

Chinese and American Millet. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Chinese and American Millet. Db. J. S. Curtis, of Sacramento, has exhibited at the Society's Rooms specimens of the above varieties of millet, and from the specimens shown, the Chinese will produce double the quantity of grass. The American will yield about six tons to the acre, and the Doctor thinks the Chinese will give twelve tons. Dr. C. will, upon threshing, weigh the seed of each crop, and this will test their relative value. The Chinese variety is of a bright green foliage, grains golden color, long pendant branches, and also throwing heads from numerous joints below the principal head. It is a beautiful tasselled head, and yields a large quantity of seed and thus gives nutrition of great value, which is a large consideration in the value of the grass. The American changes to a brown, and is a compact long round head/filled with seed. Both samples can be seen at the Rooms. We append the following article on millet, from the Rural New-Yorker, showing the important feature in i...

Wheat Crop—Statistics and Distribution. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

Wheat Crop—Statistics and Distribution. As an article of commerce, wheat has been raised, in surplus, in several countries; but, taking the whole earth into view, the production of wteat has never equalled the demand for it. There have always been countries which, in pursuit of greater gain from other crops, or, in consequence of natural deficiencies, have not raised enough for their own food; and, if we equalize the crop, we shall find there has never been enough. In giving the statistics of wheat in this country, we state, in advance, that the production of wheat in the interior of the United States, is of great consequence and interest to our western railways. A single fact will place this in a striking point of view. In the year 1854, the wheat crop»of Ohio fell short of a fair average, 10.000,000 bushels. The whole of this was taken from the surplus — , that which would have been carried to market. The consequence is. that a single railway fell short in its freight business to ...

NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

NIGHT. Sweet, sweet the hour of closing day When night conies on apace, And with its dark, and sombre veil, Enshrouds fair natures face; While, one by one, the twinkling stars Come forth, so clear and bright; And seem but one vast bed of pearls. Beneath the moon's soft light. Oh I then I love to wander forth, And cast off worldly care, And catch upon my burning brow The cooling, midnight air, That comes through scented groves and bowers, With swift yet unseen wings, And from some bed of flowerets sweet, The choicest perfume brings. Yes, 'tis an hour I dearly love, When nature is at rest; For then sweet intercourse I hold. With thoughts within my breast; Then, sorrows that at times seem great, A form less hideous wear, And trials, that each day brings forth, Appear less hard to bear. Tia then I think of days gone by, When, joyous as a bird, With gladsome shout, and merry laugh, In sports my voice was heard; Oh I that I sould those hours recall, With all the joy that's fled, Tb« frien...

England and America. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 20 July 1855

England and America. The tenor of certain articles which have of late made their appearance in the Times, would seem to indicate that there exists across the Atlantic, in the breasts of our near relations, the inhabitants of the United States of America, a feeling of hostility to us. our institutions and undertakings, and a feeling of sympathy with our Russian antagonists. We do not believe it; but, on the con.trary, we believe that blood is thicker than water, or inthiscase we might say than oil —that though the Yankees might have no objection to have a shot at us themselves, they wish no other people in the world to do so with success —that republican liberty can never sympathise with despotism —enlightened intelligence with hopeless ignorance—progress with obstruction—that the an- tagonism of qualities and races and institutions between Russia and the States is a gulf too stormy to be passed, and that the ties of kindred blood and kindred sentiment between the States and Great Br...
