Our Soil Inexhaustible—Reasons why. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Our Soil Inexhaustible—Reasons why. Messrs. Editors : The following very able exposition of the beneficial effects 6f drought on land, is from the able pen of Prof. lliggings, in a late number of the Philadelphia Ledger, and con- tains much truth and presents one reason why our arid plains so agreeably disappoint strangers in their natural and artificial productions, especially the latter. Can any one, after these weighty • reasons, say that deep plowing and thoroughly pulverizing soil is or " worse than useless," as some say 1 r l Agricultural Chemist of Maryland. (Mr. lliggings,) nas punilslieU a paper showing the necessity,, of droughts to replenish the soil with mineral substances, carried off to the sea by rains, and also taken up by the crops, and not returned by manure. These two causes, always in operation, would in time, render the earth a bar ren waste, in which no verdure would quicken, and no solitary plant take root, if there was not a natural counteraction by drought, ...

Spare the Birds!—- Birds and Insects. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Spare the Birds!—- Birds and Insects. Wilson Flagg, in a late number of Hovey's Magazine, makes five classes of insects, and as many of birds, acting as natural checks upon the increase of insects: The swallows are the natural enemies of the swarming insects, living almost entirely upon the wing. The common martin devours great quantities of wasps, beetles and goldsmiths. A single bird will devour five thousand butterflies in a week. The moral of this is, that the husbandman should cultivate the society of swallows and martins about his lands and out buildings. The sparrows and wrens feed upon the crawling insects that lurk within the buds, foliage and flowers of plants. The wrens are pugnacious, and a little box in a cherry tree will soon be appropriated by them, and they will drive away other birds that feed upon the fruit, a hint that cherry growers should remember this spring, and act upon. The thrushes, blue-birds, jays and crows prey upon butterflies, grasshoppers, crickets, l...

"The Bread of Life." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

"The Bread of Life." f That bread is the "staff of life," has been too long an established fact to permit of a question now, and when danger approaches this sensitive chord, the whole body domestic is affected. It is with this view, feeling that every information we can impart, every aid we can offer, by which the citizens of our State may be fully apprised of the condition of this great staple, that we look to its movements as of the highest importance. California is destined to be a great Grain growing country, and she will need to know not only the true condition of her own granaries and markets and those of the great marts of our older States, but of all Europe; for as years advance, means of communication will be much more rapid, and we shall be competitors in every market where the "Stars and Stripes" are known. For these reasons, we shall endeavor to present at the proper time the true condition of our own markets, our stocks on hand, and the present and prospective value of ...

Where shall the Next State Fair be Held ? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Where shall the Next State Fair be Held ? The most appropriate time to agitate this question is the present, and the best time to decide it is during the coming Exhibition, when we can have the voice, will and interest, of those who are to be affected, present at the gathering. It is customary to have the Annual Meeting of the Society holden during the Fair, and as the act of incoporation fixes that election, the question should now be presented to all who feel an interest in this important matter. It is to be hoped that large delegations will come up from every section of the State and manifest an interest in tho matter, for there is hut one way to decide the question. Wherever the greatest zeal for the cause of Agriculture is found—wherever the citizens manifest by their action the present year, by bringing forward evidences of that interest and by their personal efforts making known by the most reliable proof that the mass of the people will receive the most benefit, there will t...

Editors Farmer : The accounts from all parts of the country in regard to the crops, aro very promising, and it is a cause for general rejoicing, as it will have a most beneficial cfTect upon all branches of business.
