MEDICAL. IT IS A FIXED FACT, CONSUMPTION CAN BE CURED! SIR JAMES CLARK, Physician to V nEfi Queen Victoria, and one ol the most j learned and skillful men of the age, in f liHtL-A n '" "Treatise." on Consumption, says: V "That Pulmonary Consumption admits of a euro, is no longer a matter of doubt; I -Jfc—lE3T clearly demonstrated by the Cv^""3t- J *Jf* l *M'\ researches of Lwnnec and other pathologists." Da. Carswell, who investigated guch matters probably as thoroughly as any man, says : " Pathological anatomy has, perhaps, never afforded more conclusive evidence in proof of theVui ability of a disease than it haa in that of tubercular phthisis," (pulmonary consumption.) It la no Fiction. These statement* are made by men who have demonstrated what they say, time after time, in the crowded hospital, and in the truth telling dissecting room. They are from men who hove no possible motive for publishing what is untrue, or emblazoning falsehoods. The Remedy which we offer Dr. Wistar's B...

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 10. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 10. On Stall-feeding of Animalß. Editors Farmer: In Letter No. 4.1 recommended Potatoes as a substitute for Turnips, in in Stall-feeding. I now return to the subject; but, before doing so, offer a few remarks on Animal Physiology, to enable us to understand more perfectly what we have got to do. Food, when taken into the stomach, is dissolved by the gastric juice into "chyme"; which '"after or lacteals, take up the fluid part, leaving the insoluble portions. The chyle, or absorbed fluid, is partly conveyed into the abdominal veins,' and partly made to pass through numerous glands (in which process it loses its acid re-action, becoming alkaline) from which it proceeds to the thoracic duct, and is, with the lymph, poured into the vena cava, to mix with tire venous blood."* From the right ventricle of the heart, the blood, collected from all parts of the body, passes with considerale force to the lungs; where, meeting with the oxygen of the atmosphere, it is the...

What Food will Produce the most Wool. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855

What Food will Produce the most Wool. As the raising of sheep is fast gaining favor in this State, antl us it is certainly destined to be a sheep raising and wool growing State, and that too on a laige scale, we feel that every practical truth connected with this subject is of much importance, and copy the annexed account from Morrell's Shepherd. The experiments can be easilytested here in California, at the present time, and thus prepare the way for a more speedy success, if they are based in truth and will be applicable to our State: Peal, beans, vetches, Ac., are useful for the purport of enriching the blood, by furnishing it with large supplies of albumen, which is its principal constituent. It will be remembered that in the analysis of flesh ami blood, the relative propoitions of their constituents are nearly identical; consequently, whatever food contains nitrogen, and the greatest amount of albumen, is the best adapted to the development of flesh or muscle, und is therefore t...

A Grasshopper Remedy. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855

A Grasshopper Remedy. Messrs. Editors: I have just noticed an article in that truly useful and well conducted journal, the Scientific American, which all owners of fruit trees and vines would do well to try now before the grasshopper season is over, to prevent them from devouring the leaves. •• T bored proportionahly small holes, according to the size of the trees, through the sap wood, six or eight in number, at different heights around the trunk, though at a short distance from the ground. The holes were then packed two-thirds lull of sulphur and plugged up with soft pise or cedar wood, coated over with a mixture of pitch and beeswax. I could not doubt for a moment that sulphur exhalations were obnoxious to tree norms, since from observations 1 know it to be the case with the red ant and some kind of winged insects, while 1 think the view just set forth is well confirmed by the gradual disappearance of the worm shortly after the application of sulphur, Sulphur is exhaled from the ...

The New County Society of Yuba. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855

The New County Society of Yuba. We can most sincerely congratulate this county, and its people of every class, in the successful organization of their County Agricultural Society. As will be seen by their reports, we were present at their preliminary meetings, and the real interest then manifested assured us there is abundant material for a most prosperous Society. We know it is very difficult in a new country like this, amid so many distinctive cases and dif ficulties as at present surround all interested, to call together all those who will finally become identified with this Society. At the present time there is quite a degree of political excitement; a depression 100 from losses caused by the grasshopper—much, very much to deter men from immediate action upon a subject so new as an organization of this kind. Yet we were truly pleased to see the meeting so well, we may say so largely attended, when we think of their con* Dieting interests. We are sure, from our personal knowledge...

Feather River Road—Ranches, Grasshoppers, Titles, etc. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855

Feather River Road—Ranches, Grasshoppers, Titles, etc. Startino from Alarysviile we passed up the Feather River Road, examining the several Ranches, their crops of grain, vegetables, &c. We were continually pained to witness the devastation of the grasshopper, but pleased to see the general fortitude displayed under the loss this peste has caused. Great as this evil is, jit is nothing compared to the loss and hindrance to the general prosperity caused by the delay jn the settlement of titles. W T e passed manny fine Ranches, and noted their improvements. We called at the '■ Covilland Feather River Ranch."— We found here a line tract of land, with a neat residence upon the highland)*, a broad and beautiful opening to the river some miles from the • house, and as rich bottom land as could be desired. Upon this land and iv fact upon the whole of this hue bottom, we have no doubt ere long we shall see tropical fruits as well as cotton, lice, tobacco, and in the lower bottoms...

New Books. Cone Cut Covers: The experience of a Conservative Family in Fanatical times. By Benauley. Mason Brothers. Publishers. 23 Park Row, New York. 450 pp l2mo. This is a singularly witty, satirical, and well written American romance, depicting lifelike (and we suspect truthful) eccentricities of rural New England Society, which will he particularly interesting to every son ami daughter of the land of steady habits who will not fail to recognize the accuracy of the portrait these exhibit, and indulge in hearty laughter at the fun interspersed throughout the book. Those, too. who ha\e figured in, or are acquainted with fashionable society in New York, will be surprised to find skillfully drawn scenes of folly of the Gotham "upper ten" circles, which while they do not offend correct taste, w ill have a reformatory tendency upon all interested, and provoke only cheerful mirth in the reader.
