AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 12. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS. —NO. 12. On Rearing Young Calves. Editors Farmer : The food taken into the animal system has got two principal duties to perform: to supply heat, (and fat, which, as we have seen, is formed from a superabundance of the material provided for that purpose.) and to furnish the constituents of flesh and blood, which in young animals are daily increasing, and in those of any ago constantly undergoing change | and consequently require additional supplies to make up for the constant waste. On making an analysis of fat we find that it does not contain nitrogen, and. consequently, in stall-feeding for the butcher, food containing but a limited supply is wanted. But our principal object, in raising young stock, is the production of muscle, and no more prudent course can be taken than to follow the rule already suggested: "First to ascertain what it is made of, and then to supply the necessary materials in the animals' food." Flesh and blood, according to Thomson, are compo...

Gapes in Chickens. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

Gapes in Chickens. Mr. Miner : I send you a small instrument, which I used with great success in curing gapes in chickens. Early last spring a number uf my young Shanghaes, were raised without being affected with gapes, in a yard where other chickens were nearly all destroyed by that disease. My preventive was to put two or three drops of spirits of turpentine in their water every time it was renewed. In passing through my yard in the month of August, I noticed a brood of cross-breed Brahma and Shanghae chicks, about three or four weeks old, gaping badly. The girl who fed them told me that they had been badly affected for several days, and two had died that morning. There were sixteen in the brood. I had tried the feather and spirits of turpentine sometime before, and killed two by injury to the wind-pipe, as I supposed. I went to tho house and got a piece of wha!e-bone, and 1 had the brood, fourteen in number caught, and I set them on my knee, opened their mouths, stretched their n...

Does it Pay ? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

Does it Pay ? How often do we hear this ejaculation emanating from those who in many of the occupations of life are in the most commanding positions; positions, where by their influence they sway hundreds and thousands. Yet while they are good and honorable men their whole aim seems to be to acquire weal(h l and all the energies of both body and mind are given to this pursuit, as if its attainment was the very zenith of all their aspirations, and the securing of this wealth was the "open Sesame" to the road of happiness. The merchant, as he unrolls the long invoice-.-.' that his correspondents or agents have shipped him ; as he looks over the various articles enumerated upon the list, rarely thinks of the benefit he may be conferring upon the city or State by the introduction of some new commodity. In his eye and on his mind are written and stamped these three words — will it pay ? The manufacturer, as he erects his mill and looks over the complicated machinery, as the polished whee...

The Turf, cf California. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

The Turf, cf California. California is destined to create some excitement in the world, by the attention which is now given to the preparations for having within her borders the finest horses in the world. We mentioned some time since the importation of a very valuable entire Horse by A. J. Easton, Esq., of San Francisco. We were invited by Mr. E., a few days since, to see this noble animal, and were kindly driven out to the stable near the Laguna, on the Presidio road, for this purpose. Having sccn'and examined this beautiful animal, —having made a thorough inquiry and examined the certificates of his pedigree—having learned all the necessary details, we are now prepared to speak of the animal, and what we saw. All we need say or do will be to publish, from authentic documents, the history of the animal. This will convince any one that we have now in California one of the finest and most valuable entire horses in the United States. Mr. Easton has erected a very neat and handsome br...

A Visit to the Mines. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

A Visit to the Mines. The following was written as part of the article with the above heading, published last week, but was accidentally mislaid: As we have said, no just conception can be had of the magnitude of the mining enterprises, without a personal inspection of them; and we particularly recommend to those who are making a summer journey, a trip to Park's Bar, during the months of September and October, when these works shall be in operation. We hesitate not to say, some of the richest deposits that have yet been discovered, will be found hero. The Golden Channel Company has a claim of 1000 fee long on the river. The water is now from 12 to 25 feet deep in the basin they are preparing to dry, and they are putting in four powerful steam pumps, from which the water will be carried in their waste flume and leave the bed of the river dry. The gigantic plans of fluming the whole river have been completed by several companies up and down, the present company being at the end of the...

Agricultural Meeting in Yuba County. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

Agricultural Meeting in Yuba County. Agreeably to our mention last week, we publish, from the California Express, the doings of the Yuba and Sutter Counties' Society, at a meeting held at the City Hall in Marysville, on the 13th inst. We publish this in the hope that tho proper public spirit thus manifested in that city, relative to the Great State Fair the coming month, may induce other counties to awake to their duty. We would ask most earnestly, where are the Societies of Santa Clara, Napa, Sonoma, and Alameda ? Each and all have great interests at stake—each of these counties has an organization, and great interests within its boundaries, and each cultivator is more or less interested, according to the amount he has invested in stock, gardens, nurseries, orchards, or grain fields. When each county is active, the mass will move, and if only few act, then few will reap the benefit. Each of these named counties has important interests at stake, and in an enterprise of such moment a...

Our Boston Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

Our Boston Correspondence. Boston, July, 1855. The great topic of the day is the heat: people talk of nothing but tho heat—thermometer above ninety ; and no one has enejgy to use anything! but a fan. Those who can afford to get away, rush out of the city, and those cannot, say they are going. Ice is a pleasant thing to think upon, and a trip to the sea shore—Newport or Nahant —is far more agreeable than shinning in State street, or standing behind a dry goods counter. Thin coats and trowsers from the famed Oak Hall, and cool soda from Brown's, are the only relief for the "troubled ones," If one desires something new in the way of luxury, he will find it at Tompkin's in the shape of cream syrups, a most delicious article, new and singular and very popular, if we may judge from the rush at his soda fountains during the hot days. Sun strokes are common, and foreigners who drink the raw material incautiously, suffer in consequence. Fruit is plenty and ice cream abundant. Provisions are ...

The Apple Tree Borer and Sun-Blight. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

The Apple Tree Borer and Sun-Blight. AViiile in Yuba county we had several occasions to examine young Apple trees, that were seriously injured "by the borer and by blight. At Mr. Briggs' orchard we saw large numbers of trees utterly killed by this blight. They were burned near the surface of the earth, for about three or four inches above the soil. Mr. B. lost several hundred trees in this way. He attributes this loss to the intense hot weather upon the sand, which scalds the trees. He has also lost many from the borer; but in every instance the borer has been introduced from imported trees. Trees grown here are not subject to the borer. Several other orchards have suffered losses from the same source. "We should think the sun-blight was the result of a too speedy growth, in the burning weather, and the contrast between the days and nights in the temperatures, or any cause that checks their growth. Those trees that were denuded of their foliage by grasshoppers, in almost every case,...

William Cullen Bryant on Horticulture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

William Cullen Bryant on Horticulture. At the late Exhibition of the New York Horticultural Society, W. C. Bryant, the poet, was expected to deliver an address ; but being unable to attend, he sent the following letter: New York, Tue-day, June 19, 1855. My Dear Sir: May I ask of you to lay before the company assembled this evening in the rooms occupied by the Horticultural Society, my apology for not appearing to address them as I had engaged to do. For some days past I have suffered with a swelled face which has prevented me from preparing myself for the occasion in the manner 1 wished, and which unfits me for appearing to day. It had been my intention to advert to some of the more remarkable triumphs of horticulture in lightening the beauty of ilowers and improving the quality of fruits, and thence to draw encouragement for those who follow this pursuit in our own country. The favorite varieties of cherry in France and England decay for the most part the instant they ripen in the ...

MY FATHER. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

MY FATHER. As die the embers on the hearth, And o'er the floor the shadows fall, And creeps the chirping cricket forth, And ticks the death-watch on the wall, I see a form in yonder chair That grows beneath the waning light; There are the wan, sad features; there The pallid brow and locks of white. My father 1 when they laid thee down, And heaped the clay upon thy breast, And left thee sleeping all alone, Upon thy narrow couch of rest, I know not why I could not weep— Tho soothing drops refused to roll; And oh I that grief is wild and deep, Which settles tearless on the soul. But when 1 saw thy vacant chair, Thine idle hat upon the wall j Thy book—the penciled passage where Thine eye had rested last of all— The tree, beneath whose friendly shade Thy trembling leet had wandered forth ; The very print thy feet had made When last they feebly trod the earth ; And thought, while countless ages fled, , Thy vacant seat would vacant stand— Unworn thy hat —thy book unread— Effaced thy footst...

Letters from Roving Jack.--—No. 8. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

Letters from Roving Jack.--—No. 8. SUGGS THE RUINED POLITICIAN. Merced Cocntv, Ausruet 4, 1855. Editors Farmer : My writings hitherto may justly be termed of a medley character, and may be accounted for in this way: I never write until I think of something to write about, and how near I have attained the object aimed at (of always writing about something.) 1 leave the readers to pass judgment. Sometimes I think of a subject entirely foreign to anything that I ever have written upon. The consequence is, if I feel like writing. I sit down and pen an article on the subject first in my mind, and. as near as I can say, all I know about it, regardless of what the heartless critic may advance for or against it. One thing, however, I undertake to say (in proof of which I would refer the reader to my numerous miscellaneous letters that have appeared in the public journals at different dates), which is, that in all of them I have preserved a degree of consistency and candor, and have not been...
