Letters from Roving Jack.—No. 7. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Letters from Roving Jack.—No. 7. Rose May School Land Warrants — lnformation Respectfully Solicited—The Subject partially Discussed—And Open for Discussion . Merced Covnty, July 26, 1855. Editors Farmer : Possessing as I do a degree of gallantry, I very certainly would be guilty of perpetrating an unpardonable error, and would 6adly misrepresent my nature, did I neglect to dedicate a portion of this article to the fair Poetess who has so kindly condescended to peer down from her lofty pegassus and thus breathe her plaintive and sublime effusions, and devote them to the gentle warning and desired reclamation of your humble and unworthy correspondent, over that lovely signature " Rose May." It matters not whether it be her true name, or simply a non de flume; in either case it is the same Should it prove to be her real name, it is one of the sweetest in the world—and let it be a non de plume, it is prima facie evidence of the lady's good taste in making tlie selection.

The New Yuba and Sutter Society. Makysville, August 4, 1855. Col. Warren: Dear Sir —You have already been apprised of the fact, that the counties of Yuba and Sutter have united in forming an Agricultural and Horticultural Society, and it affords me great pleasure as its official organ of correspondence to address the Parent Society through you. and claim a place beneath the shadow of her wing. It will afford you increased happiness to know that in spite of all the discouragements which have attended the Agriculturists of California thus far, that they are determined by united effort to obey the great command. " Replenish the enrth nnd subdue it" It will afford me heartfelt pleasure to assure you from time to time, of tlie increase of interest which I feel fully assured will attend the Society, and all favors received, in the shape of Books for the diffusion of agricultural knowledge, which is much needed, or Seels for careful experiment in culture, will be most gratefully received, ...
Practical Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Practical Agriculture. Give us special directions —more practical di rections ; give us regular rules for the production of the various crops, so that we can raise our annual pioducts by them, as a carpenter builds hi&gt; house by his plan. Such, we suppose, is what many people expect of a '' first class" agricultural paper ; and just ko far as any file of weeklies or .of monthlies comes short of this, just so far short it comes of Hs obligations. Are we right in thus describing at least the secret hopes of many readers of those useful journals, if not their actual expectations ? If so, we are perfectly willing, for one, at once and for all, directly and explicitly, to extinguish those hopes, and annihilate those expectations,, so far as the expression of our views, and opinions, or expectations, may produce such a result; for we have no sort of confidence in any such plan of operations, and the louder any co-laborer should proclaim this as his definite object and expectatio...
Caliph, a Pure Arabian Horse. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Caliph, a Pure Arabian Horse. Saladin, a writer in the N. Y. Spirit of the Times, gives the following in relation to this horse that was recently imported from Egypt, and remarks on Arab horses in general: Mr. Editor: Perhaps you would confer a favor on the numerous correspondents and readers of your valuable paper by disseminating the intelligence that there is. at this time, a beautiful Arabian horse (Caliph), now standing, on very moderate terms, at the stable of Mr. John Case, in the town of Flemington, Huntingdon county, New Jersey, that can be reached in four hours from New York by railroad. The history of Caliph is brief, and supported by documents that Mr. Case will exhibit cheerfully. Caliph is now live years old. A few of his colts, dropped within a week or two. are to be seen a short distance from his stand. He was presented, when a colt of eighteen months, to an infant son of the late U. S. Consul-General in Egypt, by the reigning Viceroy, selected out of his noble and p...

Our Politics. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Our Politics. Party is the madman of many, for the gain of a few.—Swift. We are so often inquired of, relative to our " political creed ;" so often called upon to open letters containing stirring political strains,linked with agricultural lore, that we are really troubled and vexed. Our journal is devoted to agriculture and its kindred sciences, to the promotion of those interests that tend to build up the State, and to make it the happy and prosperous home of an intellectual and happy people, and from this purpose we can never be drawn, driven or bribed by any pecuniary or political consideration, or hope of gain from these sources: our highest aim being the diffusion of that information which we believe tends to permanent prosperity and happiness. For this reason we feel called upon to declare anew our purpose and plans, and to present the political platform ot the California Farmer; and from this time we trust no letter or communication will be addressed to us containing politica...
California Industry. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855

The City of Marysville. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
The City of Marysville. In the years past we well remember the apparent rivalry that existed between Marysville nnd Sacramento; high words, hard words, went between city and city —but it was in the "'newspapers"; it was like a political warfare; railroads, trade, steamboats, 4c, all influenced this kind of —game ; it was words, and we are very happy to see and know that even words have passed away and nothing but the kindliest feelings of fraternity exist. It is some two years or more since we were in Marysville, until our present visit, and we find that Marysville, like Sacramento, bears the marks of progress and permanency. Both are goodly cities, and destined to be "great marts" of a prosperous trade. Marysville is indeed a prosperous and beautiful city, and is daily becoming more so. Improvements of a solid and permanent kind are being made; her citizens, her merchants, her professional men, "grow with her growth and strengthen with her strength." They arc identified with her st...
Weekly account of Fruits Exhibited at the Society's Rooms. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Weekly account of Fruits Exhibited at the Society's Rooms. From this time until the Annual Fair, a Committee will attend at the Rooms, from day to day, to examine and record succinctly such data as will give to each exhibitor the same chance for a premium at the Fair, as though his fruit was there and then exhibited.

Flouring Mills at Marysville. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Flouring Mills at Marysville. The people of Yuba county are actively preparing to do their own work in tho way of manufacturing flour. We have examined the " Buckeye Mill," owned by Messrs. Teegarden and Foster. This mill is now undergoing repairs, and much improvement will be made in every feature of the work. It has three run of stones, capable of turning out 100 barrels per day. Smith's smut cleaner is used at this mill; this cleaner revolves 1000 times per minute. The grain is raised to the roof of the building to winnow, thence down to smut, up again for a second winnowing, thence to a damper, and then (when sufficiently swelled) it passes to the stones. Whew* first ground, all the flour that passes the perfect bolting cloth is bagged ; that which passes to the second bolting cloth is again returned and ground over, until it is perfect enough to pass No. 1. The mill is moved by steam power; a very fine engine docs the work grandly, and at the small consumption of only three cor...
Another Murder. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Another Murder. " Oh, thou Invisible ppirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call the—devil 1" Another victim has given his addition to swell the awful cortege of mortality ; led on by ths inflexible demon, drunkenness. The evidence adduced by the coroner's inquest, was that one John Van Arnam met his death from wounds given by some sharp instrument, in the hands of some person unknown. From outside information.gleaned from reliable authority, your reporter learns that the circumstances connected with the affray, which resulted in the death of the unfortunate man. as far as known, were subs antialfy these: He was first seen running from a .house in Virgin Alley, with his hand to his side, exclaiming M Some one has struck me with a clapboard 1" A stream of blood issuing from his side, and his face horribly mutilated, immediately attracted the attention of passers-by, by whom he was removed to the Western House, where he died the next day. From the few words which ...
Circular. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 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 lor 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 oWarms, Orcha...
