Prizes for Mowing Machines. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
Prizes for Mowing Machines. The Trustees of tlie Massachusetts Society for i Promoting Agriculture, believing that the introduction of labor-saving machines in field opera- | tions, especially those employed in mowing, prom- [ ises to effect a most beneficial change in the agricultural economy of New-England, are desirous of bringing this subject to theearnest and immediate attention of the farmers of Massachusetts. For the purpose of forwarding the movement now being made in this direction, they offer the following premium: To tlie possessor of the mowing machine which shall cut during the present season, with the greatest economy and to the best advantage, not less than fifty acres of grass within the State, the machine to be worked by horse or ox-power, $000. All other things being equal, the greatest number of acres cut by any one machine exceeding fifty, would entitle the competitor to the premium. Every competitor must give notice to the Trustees of his intention to compete fo...
UNION. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
UNION. [This is true poetry; it breathes patriotism, and it will awake in every breast a greater love and a truer devotion to that anchor of our liberties. We have seen this beautiful strain copied frequently. It was rend by Rev. Mr. Cor win in his address on the 4th July, at San Jose, and we presume it was original. It denotes a heart in tlie right place, whoever he may be, and it should be published in every paper in our land.—Ed J " You can't sever the Union, for ye cannot undo, The relation of brother to brother ; Ye may coldly regard him and slander him too, But when sorrow o'ertakes him your heart Will be true, To the love you once bore him when together ye grew, In peace, by the tide of your mother. You can't sever the Union, for ye cannot untwine The numberless ties that have bound you, Like the thread of a beautiful and delicate vine, Tiiat has silently spread in the rain and the shine, Till, when you would burst them, each gossamer line, Turns to cord and cable around you....
HIDDEN LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
HIDDEN LIGHT. I must mistrust the roice Thst says all hearts are cold, Tiiat mere self-interest reigns, And all is bought and sold. I must mistrust the man Who will not strive to find Some latent virtue in The soul of all mankind. Yes I it you say the fount Is sealed and dry, I know It needs a wiser hand To make the waters flow. If you would still appeal To evil life in all, I know a demon-hand Will answer to your call. But when the Lord was gone— The Lord who came a save— Two angels fair and bright Sat watching by the grave, ' And from that blessed hour, With an immortal tnien, In every tomb of Good Some angel sits unseen. The spell to bring it forth f With lowly, gentle mind, With patient love mid tius Go seek—and ye shall find. Household Words.
The Old Monumental Bell and House. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
The Old Monumental Bell and House. The San Francisco Alta California, of July 11th. says: We briefly noticed, in a recent edition, the demolition of the old time honored house of the Monumental Engine Company. No. 6, situated on Brenhatn Place, at the head of the Plaza. There are. however, some interesting reminiscencesassociated with this old building, which should secure to it more than a passing notice. It is so intimately connected with some of the most exciting phases of the history of our city, that although our exhuming them at this moment,may not save i hem from the oblivion to which all things mortal must pass, yet few will gainsay that this venerable landmark is unworthy the attention,and which is as richly due the noble band of men attached to it. as to the edifice itself. The Company was formed as early as June, 1850; but was not regularly organized and admitted until September 12,1850. at which time there were near three hundred members attached to it. In those days, wh...
Sam Slick's Bargain. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
Sam Slick's Bargain. "You will find," said the Doctor, ' the men (I except the other sex always,) are as acute as yon aie at a bargain. You ate more likely to be bitten than to bite, if you try that game with them." "Bet y on a dollar," sa\s I. " I sell that old coon as easy as a clock. What! a Cheseucooker a match for a Yankee ! Come. I like that.—that is good. Here goes for a trial at any rate." " Mounseer," sais I. •• have you any wood to sell ?" We didn't need no wood, but it don't do to begin to ask for what you want, or you can't do nothing. " Yes,'' said he. " What's the price," said I, "cash down on the nail?" 1 knew the critter would see "the point" of coining down with the blunt. " It's ten dollars and a half," said he, "a cord at Halifax, and it don't cost me nothing to carry it there for 1 have my own shallop —but I will sell it for ten dollars to oblige you." That was just seven dollars more than it was worth. ••Well." sais I, "that's not high, only cash is scarce. If y...
Ladies' Department. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
Ladies' Department. The Bloom or Age.—A aood woman never grows old. Years may pass over her head, hut if benevolence and virtue dw ell in her heart, she is as cheerful as when the spring of life first opened to her view. When we look upon a good woman, we never think of her age ; she looks as charming as when the rose of youth first bloomed on her cheek. That rose has not faded yet; it w ill never fade. In her neighborhood she is the friend and benefactor. Who does not respect and love the woman who has passed her day s in acts of kindness and mercy ? We repeat, such a m oman cannot grow old. She will always be fresh and buoyant in spirits, and active in humble deeds of mercy and benevolence. If a young lady wishes to retain the bloom and beauty of youth, let her love truth and virtue, and to the close of life she will retain those feelings which now make life appear a garden of sweets —ever fiesh and ever new. A Sweet Voice. —A sweet voice is indispensable to a woman, I do not thin...
Valuable Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 August 1855
Valuable Recipes. An ox's gall will set any color—silk, cotton, or woolen. I have seen the colors of calico, which faded at one washing, fixed by it. A warming pan, full of live coals, or a shovel of the same, held over varnished furniture, will remove white spots. The spot should be rubbc with flannel, while warm. An ounce of quicksilver, beat up with the whit' of two eggs, and put on with a feather, is th cleanest and surest bed-bug poison.
