A Remarkable Man. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

A Remarkable Man. A correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune, writing from the West, thus describes an individual well known throughout the Western States: In tho vicinity of Jacksonville is the most noted man in Illinois, not excepting the ''little giant." lam told that he is a native of Muskingum county. Ohio, and that he emigrated to the prairies many years ago with money enough to buy a quarter section of land. He is of medium stature, but his frame has been one of immense power and toughness. Sometimes when he has been purchasing cattle he has accomplished the almost incredible feat of riding on horseback nine successive days and nights with no sleep but what he got in the saddle. His judgment of cattle is nigh infallible. He will ride into a drove of cattle, glance over it, with incredible quickness counting the number, singling out the average ox, computing from him the whole drove, and offering a price for the whole more promptly than many would for a single ox. Ho has the reputat...

St. Petersburg Bird Market. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

St. Petersburg Bird Market. Perhaps for a stranger, the most interesting portion of this world of markets is that of (he Tshukin Dvor, where the birds are sold. Two long rows of booths are full of living specimens of ornithology; pigeons, fowls, geese, ducks, swans, larks, bull-finches, siskins, and hundreds of other singing birds, are there collected, and form the most picturesque and variegated menageries that can be imagined. Each booth is of wood and open at the front, so that the whole of its contents may be seen at once by the passing stranger, who is saluted with such a concert of cackling, crowing, chattering, cooing, piping and warbling, as would suffice to furnish the requis. ite idyllic supply of melodies for a hundred villages. Between the opposite booths are usually such bridges as I have already described, from which the pictures of saints are suspended, for the edification of the devout. On these bridges and on the booths whole swarms of pigeons are constantly flutter...

An Inquiry after "Betty Martin." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 August 1855

An Inquiry after "Betty Martin." Pike, Santa Cruz County, Cal., ) August 14, 1855. j Mr. Editor : I will feel much obliged by your inserting in your columns, the enclosed communication to your charming friend " Betty Martin." Being naturally a very bashful man, it is painful for me to give such publicity to my too ardent feelings; but as your valuable paper is, as yet, the only medium through which I have the happiness of knowing her, I hope she will excuse me. Of my personal appearance I have said nothing, but should my suit meet with a favorable reception, I will then describe myself as accurately as my modesty will permit.. If, however, you should think it better for me reserve this last as a pleasing surprise on our first interview, I will be guided by your judgment. I began answer at as early a date as possible, as in the present state of my heart 1 find it quite impossible to pursue my rural occupations, and potatoes are growing fast and must be dug, Yours, «See, A.

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

Night. (We copy the following beautiful apostroph) Ijrom the Marysville Herald. It contains so raan> lessons of truth and beauty, that we know 0111 fair readers, at least, will thank us for it:) "Oh lovely night! from thee I learn to bear WliHt man has borne before ; Thou laye-t thy finger on the lips of care And they complain no more." The glories of the golden dawn, the splendors of noon-day, the fading light of evening, and the holy calm of twilight, have awakened the melodies of many a sweet lyre; but dearer to me, is the strain of that poet who has caught tho sweet, yet solemn voices of the night. True it is, that. ' day unto day uttereth speech" —its language from the moment of its glad birth to its calm decline, is praise most eloquent, to Him who scatters the cheering beams over all lands, bidding earth and all her tribes rejoice in His radian! smile. But, it is not less so that "night unto night showeth knowledge." And may my ear and my heart ever be open to its ...
