Great Snake Fight — Mr. Daniel Terrvnun, communicates to the Massillon (Ohio) News a thrilling encounter he had tfith a rattlesnake. On first discover/, his snakeship was preparing to appropriate to his use a squirrel by the side of the road, but probably fancying larger frame. " pt.t after" Mr. T.. who gave "leg bail," and ran. On finding that the: gap between hhn and the snake was closing, Mr. T. sought the first weapon in the shape of a club, and turning gave the snake a blow just as tho reptile was pausing and gathering for the fetal spring. The blow just came in the nick of time, and just iv the right spot, severing the head from the body. Mr. T says after the head was severed the body continued to run in dili'crcnt directions, as is generally the case previous to death—but in this case it continued for an unusual length of time, owing no doubt, to the size of the reptile, and the amount of musular strength which it possessed. After it became Sufficiently quiet, so that it coul...

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 11. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 11. On Stall-feeding of Animals. [continued.] Editors Farmer :In fattening of animals, we have already seen that the carbonaceous portion of their food, which goes to supply fat, is the same material that is necessary in producing animal heat; hence the propriety of having them in sheltered places, where they are not necesai lly exposed to cold. We also know that their bodies are constantly undergoing change ; the flesh and blood of which they are composed to-day gradually yielding its place to that which is being formed, like the water in a running stream ; and that like it, the more they are at rest, the more limited the supply necessary to furnish the same quantity of transient matter in any given time; hence the advantage of having them tied up. VYe have also seen that the action of a brilliant light is capable of partially decomposing the incipient elements of fat, and vaporizing them before it is possible for them to become so; hence the propriety of sh...

A Chance for Settlers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

A Chance for Settlers. Messrs. Editors.—ln an editorial in the San Francisco Herald, advocating the establishment of an immigration society, I notice one reason given of our population not increasing, is the want of land to supply the farmer. This being the case, allow me to call the attention of those seeking farms to our valley adjoining this place. There is here a very large tract of government land, equal to any in the State, as has been proved by the crops raised by the two or three squatters who are located upon it. But the main inducement we can offer to the settler is the certaint) of finding a market for their grain at their very doors, and at highly remunerative prices. Our population is exclusively a stock raising one, and no attention is paid to agriculture. They buy almost entirely all they consume, and flour never sells here for less than $10 per 100 lbs., on account of, the heavy expense -#f getting it here. Tens of thousands of dollars leave our county every year for...

Hope for all Things. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

Hope for all Things. We have great faith in the reformatory spirit which now pervades all ranks of men ;— strong faith in the better influence which systematic, successful husbandry exerts — ; hope and believe, that by and by, Lams and barns-yards, hog-pens and the "animals" which are monarchs within them, hen-roosts, bee-hives, etc., etc., will all get ashamed of their filth, and ask to be removed out of the highway, back, behind the house, to which position they are entitled past dispute ; that, in fine, the superior utility and beauty and prosperity of good farming—of doing every thing just as it should be done and just when it should be done, will draw all farmers, pretending or real, into the rightful channel, after a while. Sprouts often go upright when the parent trunk is a gnarled, twisted old body ; so the boys, with plastic minds, whose fathers are your hap-hazard, whiflling sort of farmers, often take a straightforward course and turn out to make sterling, business men, T...

Agricultural Meeting—The Next State Fair [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

Agricultural Meeting—The Next State Fair A meeting of the Yuba and Sutter County Agricultural Society, was held on Monday evening, at the City Hall. The two counties were well represented by the fanners present. After the transaction of the business, the Society was addressed by Rev, Mr. Briggs, of this city, and by Col. Warren, of the Farmer. Their remarks were listened to by an appreciative audience and heartily applauded. Among the resolutions passed at the meeting was one which we respond to cordially. It asked that Marysville be chosen as the place for holding the next State Agricultural Fair. It will be recollected that the first State Fair was held, as was proper, at the city of San Francisco. The Bay City is the centre of trade, of intelligence, and of wealth, in our State.' In its vicinity are many tine valleys, which contain some of the best farming lands in California. San Francisco being the metropolis, and the agricultural resources of its neighboring valleys being earl...

Fruits--—Water Melon Trade of Yuba. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

Fruits--—Water Melon Trade of Yuba. California is beginning to be celebrated for her various kinds of fruits, and the several sections of the State Will be celebrated for the different varieties, according to their soil and climate. Los Angeles has been and will be celebrated for her Vineyards. The Grape is peculiarly adapted to that climate and soil, and while it will thrive and do well in many other sections, that province will always be famous for the Vine. Santa Clara and San Jose produce magnificent Pears. Their soil and atmosphere—their humid soil made more so by their success in Artesian wells, will surely give them great advantage in the science Pomology. Sonoma and Napa will both produce Peaches, Apples, Pears and Figs ; more particu larly Peaches—there is a sure thing in the soil that will give them success. Sacramento can boast of success in the Peach and Strawberry, and a short time will bring the spirit of emulation into an active state, that will result in good. But we...

A Visit to the Mines. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

A Visit to the Mines. While we were in the upper section of Yuba, and near the Gold Diggings, we were induced to examine some of the great works going on at Parks' Bar, Long's Bar, and Ousley's Bar. At the latter place, large tracts of land, of many acres wide and some 12,15 and 20 feet deep, were being sluiced off into the Yuba river, The extent of earth can be but little conceived of, unless it be examined personally. These diggings are very prosperous. Hundreds of acres of valuable farming land, are being swept into the river every season. At Long's Bar it is river washing, but great preparations are being made to wash down the hills. A Parks' Bar, the immense Hunting works of the Gold Channel Company, and others adjoining, are of the most wonderful character. The entire flow of the Yuba river, that floats steamers at Marysville, is compressed into a flume of twenty- . one feet wide by three and one-half feet deep, and by this means the entire bed of the river will be cleared of ...

A Subject for Immigration Societies. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 August 1855

A Subject for Immigration Societies. Union City, August 6, \B~>o. EDITORS Farmer: In your paper of July 27, I noticed an article headed "Light is Breaking." and the object of the writer is, if I understand it, to get up an Immigration Society for California, somewhat similar. I suppose, to the ''Kansas" and " Nebraska Emigration Societies." All right. Now if you can get up a Society to assist an emigration to this country, it will be the making of it. There are many hard-working fanners in this Valley (San Jose) that have come here to make a fortune, and then go home to enjoy it; but failing in their calculations and being So taken up with the hcalihfnlness of the climate and productiveness of the soil, they would gladly move their families here if they w ere able ; and if they could look for aid to an Immigration Society, and get it, they would be willing, after getting started here, to join the society and aid others. I traveled through Nebraska in '52, when coming to t...

J Biddleman, Esq., County Assessor, to lay before our readers the agricultural statistics of this county. By the kindness of Hon. S 11.
