The Peach Orchard at Suscol. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
The Peach Orchard at Suscol. Some two weeks since we had the good fortune while pursuing our duties of investigations among the beautiful spots which glad the face of our fair earth, to be joined by a group of friends most congenial and most appropriate for such a duty as we were engaged in, that of looking at and tasting the various specimens that our bounteous -soil and climate yields. While at Benicia and preparing for a visit to the celebrated ranch of tho Messrs. Thompson and Bro., the thought occurred that it would be much better to have witnesses of some of these wonderful products, as people are very apt to say that we in California tell terrible stories about the wonders of California. Be that as it may. resolving this time to be sure, we had the honor to unite with a happy party. Some in saddle and some in carriages, a ride of sixteen miles brought us to Suscol, and reader we will not tell you now how much fruit we saw —how magnificent, or how far beyond the anticipations ...

Our Boston Correspondence. Boston, July 21, 1855. StNCE my last to j-ou we have had some dc lightful cool weather and refreshing rains, and the change from the suffocating heat has been bailed with joy and gladness.

Tho usual weekly exhibitions of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society hive been well attended, and the shows of fruit and flowers have been fine. This day being the premium day for picotees and carnations, the display was the best of the season —the flowers were rare and fragrant after the refreshing rains. New seedlings of the delphinium tribe were exhibited. The first premium of $5, for the best display of picotees, &amp;c. was awarded to Evers &amp; Bock, of Nonantum Vale ; the second of $4 to Hovey &amp; Co.; the third of $3 to W. J. Underwood. The display of fruits was excellent —peaches, large and rare, making the mouth water; grapesofevery variety. Mammoth cu...

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 the Society are giving their time, attention and money to the furtherance of tho 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 lair 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.

Important to Friends of the Grape. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
Important to Friends of the Grape. (The following translation having been 9ent to us by a kind correspondent at Mud Springs, we commend it to the perusal and careful observation of our cultivators of the Grape—should the disease which is doing such injury in Europe, ever appear in California:) ITranilated from the N. Y. Staats Zeitung, for the California Farmer, by Gustave Schmidt, E*q.] Dr. Franz Vulkan, in Eppan, Tyrol, from the experience that Parasites cannot continue to subist on animal substances, tried the following remedy against the diseases of the Grape: He took two and a half pounds of common joiners' glue to sixteen gallons water, let it boil therein, entirely dissolve and cool, so as to make the mass not stagnant, and at the same time not too watery, but having the appearance of lie.* Into this solution the sick grapes were dipped, and after forty-eight hours the berries showed the finest dark green shining color, like the healthy ones. In tho month of September they we...
New Trees and Plants. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
New Trees and Plants. The Agricultural Department of the Patent Office at Washington has entered with spirit upon I the work of introducing new trees, plants and seeds, for experiment in this country, and many valuable results may be expected to flow from these laudable ellbrts. A few thousands of dollars annually appropriated in this way, will doubtless, in a few years, add millions to the productive resources of tho nation. Within a few weeks, we have chronicled, says the N. E. Farmer, the introduction of fig and tamarind trees, two varieties of marine grasses, the morocco dressers' sumach, and three varieties of wheat, from Naples and France. We have now to add several other plants to the list; and first, in importance, is the Cork Tree, which is highly interesting: " About a hogshead of acorns of the cork oak was ordered by the Patent Otlico from the south of Europe, for distribution in the middlo and southern States, for experiment, or to test their adaptation to soil and clima...
Horticultural Exhibition--—Boston. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
Horticultural Exhibition--—Boston. Behold the contrast! We copy the following as the report of the exhibition held at the Society's Hall, August 4th. and we notice the last paragraph says, "of the products of the garden, there were early squashes, potatoes, corn and cucumbers." Early ! August 4th ; we would only make the contrast of tho seasons to request our readers to remember that Boston is the garden spot of New England, and enjoys a'better supplied market for all these products, than probably any other in the United States, now excepting California. Here our markets are supplied with tho finest vegetables nearly tho year round; no period when we do not have in the markets nearly all these products daily, and fresh gathered too—and nearly all the root crops remain growing the winter long. Radishes, lettuce, spinnage, cabbage, cauliflowers, celery, etc., remain in the open ground, and daily gathered the year round; cucumbers and squashes from January and February to No- | vember,...
The Next State Fair. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
The Next State Fair. If "none but the brave deserve " it, the bright, lively village of Elmira well merited the honor of being selected, tho first selection from the Southern Tier, as the place of the Farmer's Annual gathering. It is yet several months before the affair occurs, but even at this date, the inhabitants of Elmira are making industrious preparation, and with a liberality of view of their duty and their true interest* which it would have been wise and well had larger communities imitated. These citizens realize that this Fair is to test the question whether the Southern Tier of Counties can sustain reputation for excellence in the culture of the earth. Mr. Samuel Young, when Secretary of State, and while combating the Erie Railway, was accustomed to allude to this part of the State as past all hope of being anything but the companion of John Brown's tract. It bore the offence, and suffered and was strong. The counties, onco provided with a great road to the markets of New...
BUILT UPON THE SAND. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
BUILT UPON THE SAND. ELIZA COOK 'Tia well to woo, 'tis well to wed, For so tin; world hath done, Since myrtlei grew and NMM blew, And morning brought the sun. But have a care, ye young and fair— Be euro ye pledge with truth; Be cci tain that your love will wear Beyond the days of youth; For if ye give not heart for heart. As well aa hand for hand, You'll tind you've played the "unwke" part, Aud "built upon the Band." 'Tis well to cave. 'tie well to have A goodly store of gold, And hold enough of shining stuff— For charity is cold; But place not all your hope and trust Iv what the deep mine brings; We cannot live on yellow dust, Unmixed with purer things. And he who piles up wealth alone, Will olten have to stand Beside his cotter chest, and own 'Tis "built upon the sand." 'Tis good to speak in kindly guise, And soothe where'er we can, Fair speech should hind the human mind, And love win man to man. But etay not at the gentle words, Let deeds with language dwell; The one who pities s...
MUSIC HATH CHARMS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
MUSIC HATH CHARMS. [ON HEARING MRS. W,,,, FLAT AND SING.] Lady I thy voice is echoing still Around my heart, thy music stealing Like fire electric, it doth thrill My very soul with purest feeling. Oh, what were life without thy charm Mclodia ? Hail glorioua art I Thy magic powers all griefs disarm, And soothe the sorrowing, troubled heart. Lady, thou knoweet well the chord Where Music's deepest tones are found. The Poet's thoughts thy soul hath heard, Thou giv'st them potter and sweeter sound. Chords touched by thee, thy Harp doth know, Are by a "master spirit" moved. Obedient they in music flow, As stars gleam from the blue above. The purest, holiest joys of earth, That e'er to mortals here are given, By Muetu niuwU, receives new worth, For Music is a " Gift from Heaven. —Marysville Herald. W.
The Rural Preacher. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 September 1855
The Rural Preacher. " The destruction of the poor is their poverty." Solomon was a wise man, no doubt, for the whole world says so; wise beyond any other man who has yet lived, as is evidenced by the original and collected pithy sayings attributed to him, and handed down to us in the Book of Proverbs; and which are alike the best guide we can take, either for our prosperity in this world or that which is to come. And now to our text. Why is it that we have so many poor farmers among us ? For the very reason, my friends, that they have so little means to do wi'h. Look at the way the poor farmer starts in life. In the first place, he is a poor boy. He works out, after eighteen years old. usually for a poor farmer, like what he himself is now. He never learnt to do much as it should be done, except to chop wood, and do chores, the extent of too many farmer boys' education. He starts in life poor, of course, marries early, and commences work in too many instances on a poor farm. He has ...

She, together with her fortune, was placed in the hands of a guardian, who was distantly related to the lamily. Her fortune and her remarkable beauty, attracted the attention of many suitors, among whom was an accomplished young man from St. Louis, whose only wealth was his profession, His handsome person and fascinating manners won the lady's affections: and without the knowledge of her guardian, they were privately married. Shortly afterwards they removed to St. Louis, where they lived together for a time and a bright fortune seemed before them. At the expiration of a year, the lady having attained her majorit}*. they returned to New Orleans to claim her for tune and live in the splendid old family mansion.
