Apple Tree Borer and Sun Blight. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Apple Tree Borer and Sun Blight. Ai.iia.ubka Valley, Martinez, Sept. 4, 1855. Editors Farmer : Your request to Orchardists and Gardeners in the last number of the Farmer, respecting the Apple Tree Borer and Sun Blight, induces mo to, sketch my experience in the matter as based upon my personal observation, which may tend to multiply facts suggestive of a general remedy for avoiding the above named pests. I have observed the " Sun blight near the surface of the ground " on apple, quince, and peach trees, and it appeared to me to result from, either deficient tillage, the soil being clody and baked, or, if the ground was loose, deficiency in moisture; in each case not supplying sufficient nourishment to the plant. I have l»a<l quinoo troo.t, oo afl'ovtcJ, cut down below the blighted part, and they started a new thrifty growth. The Borer infesting my trees is certainly indigenous to this country, and in its habits and form is somewhat different from the Apple Tree Borer in t...

A New Fact in Grafting. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

A New Fact in Grafting. The better process generally for working cherries and plums, is to bud or inoculate at the proper season ; but it often happens that it is desirable to work trees too old, or the season so drythat the bark will not slip, and the budding process cannot be performed, in which case grafting becomes important. The grafting of the cherry is quite an uncertain operation, and never succeeds well except when, performed early In the spring, and the scions, which are difficult to keep, are fresh and in good order, the bark is so liable to discolor, and the wood to shrivel, which is absolutely fatal to its vitality. The same trouble applies to the plum in a less degree. Individuals, not nurserymen, are apt to neglect cutting their scions in proper time, and are only sensible of the oversight when they observe the objects they wish to alter at the opening of spring, w hen it is too late. The new process to which I allude, is a means whereby a scion of any kind may bo cut...

THE FRIGATE BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

THE FRIGATE BIRD. OSCAR G. HUGHAN Bird, of plumage rich and rare, I would soar with thee in air; Through the broad expanse of blue, Purer visions I would view. Far irom scenes where mortals weep, On thy pinions I would sweep; Gaily o'er the sparkling wave, Where thy pinions thou dost lave. Lend, O lend me, then, thy wing, Lonely wanderer, airy king ! Let me now my flight begin, I would flee the earth's loud din. Man has made this world, once fair, The birthplace of unceasing care; Hearts 'gainst hearts, till life is o'er, Wage a dark, relentless war; And when death has kindly freed A heart that lived alone to bleed, Buried 'neath the sod 'twill lie, Perished c'en from memory. Far from earth's conflicting thrall, I would live, if live at all; Give, O give me, then, thy wing, Lonely wanderer, airy king. Storms may ruffle thy soft breast, But they soon are hushed to rest; Leaving nothing in their train, That can give thy bosom pain. Soon are ye upon the crest Of heaving waves, with plu...

Boston and its Environs. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Boston and its Environs. The following brief but memorable and truthful sketch of a few of the M sunny spots" around tho Queen City of New England, will cause a quicker pulsation at the heart of many a Californian. We know no New Englander can read them and n6t be carried back to scenes and associations "dear to memory;" associations linked with the loved ones of their early home. Mount Auburn ! what holy ground—the dead are there. No, it is only the dust of them that sleep ; their spirits have gone back to their giver, and we feel as we now commune with the spirit of those we once laid there, as the tear comes unbidden at the flash of memory—we know these pure spirits have ascended, and that " we shall meet again." TheAthencum! that temple of literature, where the living hold converse with those of giant intellect, who have passed away, and who have left volumes of their history to act on coming ages, when the marble that would keep alive their "Story" shall have crumbled to ashes,...

Canal of New Granada. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Canal of New Granada. It is a self-evident proposition that commerce between countries, as between parts of countries, must be greater or less, according to the diversity of production. When two nations like England and New England produce nearly the same articles at about the same skill and cost, that trade or interchange of commodities between them can not be great. Each has of its own enough of that which the other produces. On the other hand, the interchange between an exclusively manufacturing and an exclusively agricultural country must be very great, because each wants exactly that which the other produces. During the long peace that has prevailed since the wars of Napoleon, the countries of Western Europe and North America have assimilated through the process of manufacturing arts. England has become a larger customer for produce and a greater seller of goods. She has sought markets for these sales, however, out of Europe —in the East, in South America, and in the distant is...

Commercial Morality. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Commercial Morality. The failure of the great banking house of Strahan, Paul & Bates, of London, is a remarkable event in English commercial history ; not for the reason merely that they are bankers, or that the sum for which they have failed is large, but that the facts present a deliberate misappropriation of trust funds, and a systematic violation of, the principles of commercial honesty totally at variance with the high reputation for probity and honor which have been the supposed characteristics of old English merchants. The house in question has been in existence since the days of the Commonwealth. During nearly two centuries it has, as a bank of deposit, making advances on title deeds, plate, &c, enjoyed the confidence of the most exalted class in British society. As the wealth of England has increased and the revenues of its nobility and landed gentry have grown in amount, the business of this firm has increased. Of late years, under the title of llal...

Valuable Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 September 1855

Valuable Recipes. A New Preserve. —A correspondent sends us the following: "I have lately been very busy making a new kind of preserve, which, I may Bay, is quite a discovery, to me at least, and which promises to insure me a plentiful supply of good, wholesome jam. for my family during the winter at a price below the usual cost of preserves. I was, the other day. making some ordinary apple jam, and before finishing it, tput in some blackberry juice, in order to give it a little color, and I was surprised at finding how much the preserve was improved by the addition; so much so, that it might be mistaken for damson jam. As you will see by the following proportions, the cost must be very small, wherever apples and blacki berries are to be got. I put to two quarts of tho juice of blackberries —that is, I bring the berries up to a simmer for five minutes, and then strain them through a coarse cloth —and about six pounds' weight of cut-up apples, and one pound ot crushed lump-sugar, and...
