AGRICOLA'S LETTERS.—NO. 13. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

AGRICOLA'S LETTERS. —NO. 13. On Stall-feeding and Rearing Young Calves. (supplemental.) Editors Farmer: Before Chemistry was dreamed of, by common farmers, as being of the slightest use to them; and, when in country places, the dyer, perhaps, was the only individual who turned its lessons to account, they, in many instances, were doing almost- everything they ought to Have done; partly, it would seem, because Nature, aware of the importance of their calling, had pre-arranged for them, not only the approximate materials of manure for their fields, but also in their common crops, almost all that was wanted for their own food, or that of their animals, in a state of perfection ; and partly, because their forefathers had stumbled upon discoveries, and they continued to follow them. But now that the light of Science is dawning over the whole land, and the dignity and poetry of Husbandry are beginning to be appreciated, we are not content to go on in the old jog-trot manner we were wont, ...

Artesian Wells in Yuba and Sutter. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Artesian Wells in Yuba and Sutter. Yuba and Sutter counties are becoming more and more convinced of the necessity of Artesian Wells, and in spite of the hindrances heretofore encountered, the citizens of various localities are now determined to commence anew. We met the noble Old Pioneer General Sutter, in the city of Marysville, some days ago, in excellent health and spirits. In his hand he held a telegraphic dispatch for the workmen to commence again upon Hock Farm. He had made arrangements for the completion of the work, and he was concluding the contract, on which SI.OOO cash had been paid. We pray success to the General, and to all engaged in so grand an enterprise. We learn with pleasure that several other parlies will soon commence a similar work. G. 11. Heath, E>q.. whose well is now some 300 feet down, will continue the same the coming autumn or winter. Artesian Wells arc the great desideratum, and of the highest moment to the citizens of Yuba county.

Marysville Flour Mills. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Marysville Flour Mills. We spent some fiMfog through these extensive mills, for they. great york, though with very economical power. A very splendid engine of 40 horse-power, that consumes hut three or four cords of wood, carries two run of stones of large size, turning out 75 barrels of flour per day easily, and carries the machinery for a planing mill and for tongueing and grooving boards ; it also performs all the work for a sash and blind factory; and supplies all the required power for the perfection of the above operations. We examined samples of the flour, and found them A 1. At this mill Ingham's smut-mills arc used, and highly approved. Mr. Ingham, we learn, is now adding many valuable and new improvements to his mill for cleansing smutty wheat, and it is worthy of notice. His price is also reduced one-third from last year's prices. The Marysville Mills are owned by Sanborn. Williams & Co.. and by their appearance aie doing a very handsome business.

Fulton's Chicken Hatcher. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Fulton's Chicken Hatcher. We were very much interested in examining this wonderful and curious machine to convert eggs into chirping biddies. It is so curiously wonderful that we will not anticipate the full success of the invention by an expose of all its merits, but only give a hint of what it can and will do, and say to our readers that Mr. Fulton has far outstripped all former machines, either in Europe or America. By these improvements we know Mr. Fulton has closely applied himself to study. The results of his researches will be made known at the coming State Fair. We will simply state that the machine can be made plain and managed in an outbuilding by a lad, or it can be placed in the parlor, appearing like a beautiful work-table, and attended to by a lady or a miss. We examined the process and saw the eggs marked in pencil of all the different dates from 6to 20. We took some of the 15 and 1C and laid them upon the floor, and saw them move. Others of 19, 20, and 21 days we saw...

Prolific Character of Fruit Trees in California. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Prolific Character of Fruit Trees in California. "We hear it often remarked that the fruit trees of this State are remarkable for tendencies to an over-abundant crop, and that it holds good in every description of fruit. We know this to be so, not only in one season, or in one locality, but in all California and Oregon there is a universal disposition in fruit trees to overbear, and unless care is taken by growers to relieve the tree of a part of! the fruit, the tree will be seriously injured. By a little observation any one can see, as the fruit is maturing, a portion of it w ill grow more rapidly and of fairer form, leaving others of inferior size and form, licmove all the latter from the tree at once, and thus increase still larger the best fruit. This rule should apply to all fruits; to grapes, more particularly of the finest varieties; not only remove inferior bunches from the vines, but small berries from the bunch. In speaking of the prolilic nature of fruit trees in Californ...

Honor to whom Honor is Due. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Honor to whom Honor is Due. THE FIRST FLOURING MILL ON THE PACIFIC Was built by Geo. C. Yount, Esq., of Napa Valley. There may have been machines called mills, but we are now speaking of flouring mills worthy of the name of mills. The Star of the Pacific is the name of the mill. We have examined many mills, and we must say, for wisdom in designing and planning, for excellence of workmanship, for solidity of construction, for the general beauty, it is equal to any in the state and superior to most of them Were we to find fault 'with anything, we should say there had been no regard to the cost, in building—that it is too well, too handsomely built. But as the proprietor is amply able, being very wealthy, and wishes a good mill for his own use, it may be best. This mill is of the largest size, two and a half i stories high, carried by water power, the water • wheel being about sixty feet in circumference and j the finest finished water wheel we ever saw. jThe w hole building is very he...

Flouring Mills of Napa City. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Flouring Mills of Napa City. We visited the Pacific Steam Mills of Longwell & Co.. a large wooden mill, connected with their manufactory of Threshers. This mill is carried by an engine of 30 horse-power. It has two run of stones and makes on an average 80 barrels of flour in 24 hours. Were the bolting cloths more capacious, it could, with the same power, make 100 barrels per day. Crimes smutmill is used here and approved. The wheat at this mill averages 270 pounds for a barrel of flour. The very best wheat we have seen in the State we saw here, from the Suscol Rancli of Messrs. Thompson & Bro. Mr. Walbrige is the miller at these mills. They propose preparing for the grinding and bolting Indian corn and meal; this is much needed. Napa Steam Mill.— This is a large mill with two run of stones, carried by an engine of 45 horse-power. At this mill is used Smith's smuling machines, in preference. They use the Buffalo Stones, and turn out a fine flour very handsomel...

Weekly Accounts of Fruits Exhibited AT THE SOCIETY S ROOMS. From A. H. Myers, Alameda, per Wells, Fargo & Co.'s Exptess. one box of samples, embracing eighteen varieties of Apple. In the accompanying note, dated August 25. Mr. My ers says: "This with two varieties not in this list, which I have previously sent you, will make twenty varieties. The trees are all small and have never been irrigated. In shipping to this country I have lost the labels to some varieties; such the Committee will please to name. In order to obtain this collection I have had to keep some of the fruit too •long." The fruit will be laid before the Committee and duly examined, and errors corrected. From John Lcwclling, San Jose Mission, four Bartlett Pears, sent August 23d, and of which he modestly writes: •' They may be quite inferior to the same fruit grown in other parts of the State; but as one of the objects is to have a variety from all parts of the State, these may deserve a place."

A Challenge For Stock. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

A Challenge For Stock. In examining the stock of Salinas, Napa and Sonoma, and in reports made to us, we find some of the most splendid animals of the State. In our round through these counties and amoug the stock we met with, we saw a most splendid animal, that the owner has every reason to be proud of; so much so that he callenges any stock raiser north, of the Bay, to produce his equal, for a Silver Cup in the value of $100. This animal is a bull calf of eight months old. Any person desirous to compete with this offer, by addressing proposition and acceptance of the challenge, can be satisfied of the abilities of the parties. Communications addressed to this olfice will be attended to. The Great Cattle Show.—The coming Exhibition of the Stock of California will no doubt he one of great interest and value to our State.

Ho! for Napa Springs. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

Ho! for Napa Springs. A great interest is now felt among the traveling community to find the best place of resort. Tho Warm Springs of Napa are now attracting particular attention ; so much so that it is with difficulty you can gain rfthnittance to the hotel at the Springs. Visitors from all parts of the State, several from San Francisco, Sacramento, Marysville and Benicia, are now, the present week, enjoying this pleasant resort. Over seventy visitors we met there on Sunday last, and many of them severe cases of suffering, These all were daily recovering health. The house is conducted by Messrs. Evy <fc Tilley, who do all they can to make their visitors comfortable; but the rush is too great for a small place. The proprietors are preparing to'increaso their accommodations, and soon a better coudition and more comfort will be found. Having visited the Sulphur Springs of Napa, we feel called upon to make known what we saw thcr,e, and these facts can be attested to by many ...

The Turf in Tuba County. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855

The Turf in Tuba County. THE RACES AT GROVE HALL, MARYSVILLE. We attended these fine races some few weeks since and took notes of the speed of the various animals. Our notes of the time were lost, and we now give a portion to show that Yuba county can produce some evidence of speed. The iirst trial was a single dash of a mile, between '• Pocahontas" and "Sister Kate," for $1,000 aside. "Sister Kate" won the race by a neck, handsomely. We had made up our mind that " Pocahontas" would have taken the purse, and think so still, had the rider of "Sister Kate" been upon his back. The rider of ' Sister Kate" was a young lad by the name of John Henry Keller, and a finer specimen of riding we have never seen. We think the lad a match for any rider in the United States. The run was made iv 1.52. A race of 440 yards was run between " Old Tom" and " Humming Bird." Time 23 seconds, Purse $1,000 a side. Another between "Bay Filly" and " Rougin Dick." Time 18 seconds. Purse $100 a side. Other race...

Agriculture and the State Fair. Under the above heading tho State Tribune of Tuesday has an ably written and truthful article, which we copy, and commend to a careful perusal: It is profitable, occasionally, to withdraw the mind Prom 'he absorbing and exciting topics involved In a political contest, and wiping olf the dust and dirt of party strife, to refresh the tired energies with the contemplation of the less dazzling hut more substantial realities of our Agricultural interests. Amid the turmoil df contending parties, and the disputations which conflicting aspirations and passions beget, we are too apt to forget the claims which this subject has upon our attention. ■ Throughout tho widely extended and varied elements of a country's wealth, none are more deserving a respectful consideration than that embraced in the one great, vet, much neglected subject of Agriculture. The Agricultural resources of a country or State, are of all others niost essential to its prosperity and power....
