Grafting the Chestnut, etc. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Grafting the Chestnut, etc. From an interesting letter published in the 1 Cincinnati Gazette, from Mr. Sheldon I. Kellogg, to the Wine Growers' Association, dated Bordeaux, France, we make the following extract. Mr. Kellogg says: ' I have been much surprised in seeing the great dependence the poorer classes make upon the large chestnut for their daily food. It is cultivated in this neighborhood in great abundance for this purpose. All classes use them more or less; the rich having them daily brought upon their tables as a dessert, either boiled or roasted. It is often made into soup, which is highly esteemed. They are cooked in a multitude of ways, and T know-nothing of a farinaceous nature which is so very delicate and nourishing. "The marron,or large chestnut, is the produce of the wild chestnut after being engrafted. The wild tree, at three or four years of age is cut square off. The stump is then split twice. The slits intersect at right angles at the centre of the stump. There ...
Sketches from Sierra Valley. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Sketches from Sierra Valley. ALICE. To-morrow I'm to bid good bye to our ingle nook, lock up the cabin, nail shingles across the window, and carry away the household gods from the dominions of the Storm King. The other day a flock of deer came down the hill behind our cabin, stopped at the brook, and seemed to be holding a council whether to leave their summer haunts, or to remain and be hunted into the snow banks by their enemies the wolves. They were quite close to our cabin, and I fancied I could see them turn their eyes apprehensively towards the snow hills, as though they had heard the storm-spirit marshalling its forces in the glen. At last, one old fellow with great wide antlers, probably the patriarch of the tribe, started down the branch, and the whole liock soon disappeared among the trees. 1 have already passed one winter here, shut out from the world, surrounded by great snow drifts, with no outlet save towards the sky, and oh ! how dreary were those long chilly months t...
The Duties of a Guest. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
The Duties of a Guest. That the duties of a hostess arc many and onerous, no one attempts to dispute. Guests have a way of thinking that none are owing in return. This being the season of innumerable country visitations, which fall with especial weight upon a hostess so situated, let us see what Mrs. Manners, the highest authority in these matters, thinks should be the duty of the visitor: '■ To accommodate yourself to the habits and rules of the family,in regard to hours of rising or retiring, and particularly tlie hours for meals, is the first duty of a guest. Inform yourself as soon as possible when the meals occur—whether there will be a dressing-bell—at what time they meet for prayers, and thus become acquainted with all the family regulations. It is always the better way for a Jamilj to adhere strictly to all their v •'iii a' habits ; it is a much simpler matter for one to learn to conform to those than for half a dozen to be thrown out of a routine, which may be alahnost indi...
TO BETTY MARTIN. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
TO BETTY MARTIN. On a rich plain, near where Cosumncs flow, Where ginut oak in stately grandeur grow, Where lesser shrubs bedeck the forest glade, Forming a cool, a sweet inviting shade— Tbei c stands the cot that my poor presence grace: Beneath mi oak, the monarch of its race; * And while the cot can boast no luxuries rare, It has v wealth that every heart should share. Oh, happiness I it is not with the great, In guilded halls of thoi-e who move in state, Nor with the oue who seeks to stir the strife For m ,ney, honors, (lilthy dregs of life,) Tlmt fill his heart, (instead of sweet repose,) With all the ills, the author of his woes. Yes here hi mini, when Auras glance is seen First in the sky, and then upon the green, The leathered songster carols lorth his lay, Joyous to greet the coming of the d.iy. Thus from our slumber waked with notes of joy, We rise refreshed and feel our spirit's buoy, Hoping that thus our life may e'er glide on, Unt 1 at but the final goal is won. And yet ...
Florence Emerson; or, the Young Widow. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Florence Emerson; or, the Young Widow. VIRGINIA DE FORREST "Florence !" cried Jessie Lawson, bursting into her cousin's boudoir, one morning—" Florence Emerson, Harry says you are engaged to George Langford !" " Well, cousin, if I were, have you any objections?" " Objections ! Why. Floy, he is old enough"— "Just thirty-nine, cousin Jessie." "Thirty-nine! and a widower, with two children! But it is a mistake of Harry's; you are not really going to marry him, are you ?" " I expect so," said Florence, quietly. '• Well, I give you up. You, Florence Emerson, the belle of the season, with a large fortune ; you the beauty and heiress, with lovers, beaux, offers without end or number, to throw yourself away upon a poor widower with two children, and no fortune except in his profession. Oh ! Floy, I thought you had more sense. What are you thinking "of ?" " Why, Jessie, you are wasting your eloquence. George Langford is handsome!" " Granted." "Talented!" " Granted, again." "He loves me!" tt ...
VANISHED HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
VANISHED HOURS. Bring not to mind those vanished hours, They're gone, and let their memory die, 'Tis vain to weep o'er faded flowers, When fresh ones grow unheeded by. Say not thy lot is dmk and drear, That pleat-ures leave thee one by one; O dost thou not thyself prepare The cloud that covers up the sun. Hope I —for the sun that sinks at c'en Will rise to-morrow lair and bright; Smile! —for the trees and meadows green Laugh at the shower, nnd scorn its might. Upward I 'tis thither thou must tend, And " onward " must thy watchword be, Then shall thy spiiit learn to blend The finite with infinity.
Don't Shoot the Birds. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 August 1855
Don't Shoot the Birds. Oh, it is the deed of a noble heart, which can ruthlessly slaughter the little feathered songsters of our forest—those brightest) Psalmists of Nature, who are ever reiterating their jubilant songs of praise and thanksgiving, and praise, and love— whose harps are never unstrung —whose sweet, melodious voices come wafted like incense to us upon the Summer zephyrs, and floating onward and upward through the grand old woods, are caught, and re-echoed with new power, anil new beauty, and varying tones, by a myriad tuneful chorists, until the very air seems filled with the essenco of harmony, and the embowered branches of the o'erspreading trees are converted into a grand orchestral temple. We love little birds. We delight, when suffering, and care, and sorrow, have left their impress upon our mind, or some dark shadow of Evil, or spirit of Gloom, or Genii of Despair, have crossed the brighter path of life, dimming our faculties, destroying our perception of enjoyme...

The scrofulous patient, covered with ulcers, loathsome to himself and to his attendants, has been made whole. Hundreds of persons, who had groaned hopelessly lor years under cutaneous and glandular disorders, chronic rheumatism, and many other complaints springing from a derangement of the secretive organs and tlie circulation, have been raised as it were from the rack of disease, and now, with regenerated constitutions, gladly testify to the efficacy ot this inestimable preparation.
