Circular. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
Circular. The Executive Committee of the State Agricultural Society, beg leave to say to the Agriculturists of the State that as the time for holding the Annual Fair approaches the necessity for increased and energetic action throughout the State becomes, daily, more apparent. The officers of tho Society arc giving their time, attention and money to the furtherance of the work, but this will not suffice. Unless the Farmers, Merchants, Lawyers, Hotel Keepers and all others interested (and who is not?) come up to our aid, subscribe and pay their memberships and give countenance to the work, our approaching Fair cannot be made what it should be — cannot be what the resources of our State call for, what the honor of this most prominent interest demands. The State has made commendable appropriations for premiums, and the Executive Committee has published a schedule for the approaching Exhibition, and it is hoped that we may be placed in circumstances to show full statistics of Farms, Orc...

Post Offices. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
Post Offices. Conjugal Love.—The following is from the Journal of a gold digger in California. January 24th, 1850 : « A mail agent has come in to-day, and still no letters for me. It is now thirty-nine weeks since my last letter from home was dated. I would purchase one line from my wife with all the gold I have made during those thirty-nine weeks. February 4th. This is a day to be remembered. Letters from home. If any would learn the full significance of the words, let him pass ten months in California without one word from his loved ones, an unhappy exile from his family. It is an era in the mines—the arrival of the mail agent. How cheerfully are our two dollars a letter paid. It was like receiving back my family from the dead —those letters, after so long and weary a silence. I am happy ; and lam miserable. I am calm; and lam feaifully excited. It is an era in a miner's life when such although tardy messenger reaches hint. I have been present when many of these have given their t...
A Specimen of California Workmanship. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
A Specimen of California Workmanship. In our walks around the docks and among the shipping we noticed theold favorite steamer New World of '50 and '51 memory, looking as new. gay and beautiful as wdien fresh from the shipbuilder's hands; and upon being politely invited by her excellent commander, Capt. Samuel Seymour, to inspect the alterations and improvements lately made, went on board for that purpose, and we now take great pleasure in presenting to our readers, the result of our hasty visit. It may not be uninteresting to know that the entire machinery of this steamer was manufactured in California, and the work would really reflect credit upon any manufactory in the world. We give below the dimensions of the castings and wrought iron work, and we think it will prove most satisfactorily that we are not behind our Eastern friends in the arts and manufactures. The cylinder is 48 inches in diameter with 11 feet stroke of piston, requiring over 8 tons of heated metal to make the cas...
To the Voters of California. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
To the Voters of California. A correspondent of the Charleston Courier relates the following interesting circumstance, connected with Gen. Washington's last vote : ■'I was present when Gen. Washington gavo hifl last vote. It was in the Spring of 1799, in the town of Alexandria. lie died on the 11th of December following. The Court House of Fairfax county was then over the Market House, and immediately fronting Gadsby's tavern. The entrance into it was by a slight flight of crazy steps on tire outside. The election was progressing— several thousands of persons in the Court Houso yard and immediate neighboring streets, and I was standing on Gadsby's steps when.the Father of his Country drove up and immediately approached the Court House steps, and when within a yard or two of them I saw eight or ten goodlooking men from different directions, certainly without the least concert, spring simultaneously and place themselves in positions to uphold and support the steps should they fall in ...

A SPINNING-WEEL SONG. Km—" The Little House Under the Hill" I. Mellow the moonlight to shine is beginning; Clote by the window young Eileen is spinning; Bent o'er the tire her blind grandmother, fitting, Is croaning, and moaning, aud drowsily knitting— " Eileen, achora, I hear some one tapping." *' 'Tis the ivy, dear mother, agnlnet the glass flapping." "Eileen, I suicly hear somebody sighing." " 'Tis the sound, mother dear, of the summer wind dying." Mm lily, cheerily, noisily whirring, Swings the wheel, spins the reel, while the foot's stirring; Sprightly, nnd lightly, and airily ringing, Thrills the sweet voice of the young maiden singing. 11. " What's that noife that I hear at the window, I wonder!" " 'Tis the little biids chirping the holly-bush under." " What makes you be shoving and movine your stool on, And singing all wrong that old song of ' The Coolun I'" There's a Ibim at the cat ement —the form of her true love— And he whi. pers, with lace bent, " I'm waiting fjr you, l...
A Dream. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
A Dream. I stood upon a noble steamer's deck. The moon shone lustrously —here and there fleecy clouds sped quickly across the deep blue, hiding as they passed the diamond that hung in the vault above, and sometimes they would cast a slight shade upon the deck where I stood. The sea, glorious ever in its quiet beauty, was only moved by slight ripples. Tho wave- enme dancing o'or the eea, la bright and glittering bands; Like little children, wild with glee, They clapped their dimpled hand-. Far as the eye could reach was one vast ocean, bounded by the horizon only. Not a spec upon the broad space : our steamer stood alone, " monarch of the ocean." I gazed upon the beautiful scene, long and happily, for it was beautiful," It bore the impress of Deity. Grand as it was, there was one chord more wanting: the scene was too beautiful to enjoy alone. The human heart ever yearns to give utterance to its feelings, its admonitions of the beautiful. But I was alone! Would that some bright spirit...

Youthful Recollections. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
Youthful Recollections. Beautifully through the vista of a few short years comes floating back upon me the reminiscences of my happy childhood. Lovely visions greet me, visions of rainbow coloring; glimpses of my dear old childhood's home, all sunshine, my ears saluted by the birds warbling of the past. Nestled far away, amid clustering lulls of New EnKlund, ever rich with verdure, stands th#» quiet old red farm house of my aged father. The gray moss clinging to the roof, and the tall elms, of almost centuries' growth, are lovely still in my eyes, for they whisper of the loved and the lost, those playmates of my childhood's hours. Some of our household band, sweet sisters and manly brothers, now slumber in the cold dreary churchyard— their spirits returned to the God who gave them, those dear, cold, rigid, outstretched forms clasped in the embrace of Death, that grim monster, O ! I even now shudder at the slightest recollections Under the old elms that shaded the farm house, have th...
Miss Fortune's Opinion. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 August 1855
Miss Fortune's Opinion. We give space to the following communication without a critical review of the subject in question, or its tendency. We shall be glad to have the real name of the writer, and to hear from her again upon any subject, as we perceive she can wield the pen well: " In what contrast," says an exchange, " is the protest of Miss Stone, to the following remarks on ' Woman's Sphere,' by Charles Dickens:"— The true woman, for whose ambition a husband's love, children's adoration are sufficient; who applies her military instincts to the discipline of her household, and whose legislates exercise themselves in making laws for her nurse; whose intellect has field enough for her in communion with her husband, and wdiose heart asks no other honor than his love and admiration ; a woman who does not think it a weakness to attend to her toilet, and docs not disdain to be beautiful; who believes in the virtue of glossy hair and well fitting gowns, and who eschews rents and ravelle...

SPECIAL NOTICES. |y Consumption Can be Cured !—Sir James Clark, Physicinn to Queen Victoria, and one of the most learned and skillful men of the age, in his " Treatise" on Consumption, Says : "That Pulmonary Consumption admits of a Cure, is no longer a matter of doubt; it has been clearly demonstrated by the researches of Laennec and other modern pathologists." The mere fact that such a disease is ever curable, attested by such unimpeachable authority, should inspire hope, and reanimate failing courage in the heart of every sufferer from this ensc.
