Influence of Agricultural Societies. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855

Influence of Agricultural Societies. We copy from the Secretary's Report of the Massachusetts Board of Agriculture the following statement, showing most conclusively the lasting benefits which result from Agricultural Associations, and the wisdom and necessity of a liberal policy on the part of the State in fostering with parental solicitude the great and growing interest. We have received the full report of the Mass. Board of Agriculture for the past year, from their able Secretary 0. L. Flint, Esq., by the hand of % we shall have the pleasure of laying before our readers, from time to time, tho practical results of the liberal policy of Massachusetts legislation, and of other States also. We refer our readers to the extracts which we have made to-day : Probably the agricultural associations have been among the most efficient instruments in raising the standard of Massachusetts Agriculture. These societies are now seventeen in number. The oldest of them, the Massachusetts, founded ...

Reports on Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855

Reports on Irrigation. (from mass, board of agriculture.) We would urge the particular attention of our readers to this important subject. We ask their attention to the various subjects connected uilh irrigation, which we fear is too generally overlooked—such as the mechanical action of the waters, the difference between running and stagnant water, surface and underground water. The subject is worthy an attentive perusal,and isably reported: The next mode is by irrigation. This is so dependent upon circumstances, however, that it is not practicable for all; yet many lands in this State are so situated as to make it not only judicious, but truly economical. It has never been attempted to any extent by the farmers of Massachusetts; but the few instances which have come under my observation have been successful and remunerative. Irrigation has been practiced by successful cultivators from the highest antiquity. Long before Europe was civilized, the waters of the Tigris and the Euphrate...

A Frying Trip to Sunnyside. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855

A Frying Trip to Sunnyside. We have visited the county of Santa Clara twice within the last two weeks—one was the visit of a day or two. We passed down from San Francisco by land, over the San Mateo road, and which, with the exception of a few miles after leaving San Francisco, is as fine a road as man need travel upon. The after part of the day was clear and beautiful, and we rode fast in order to reach San Mateo at early eve and stop at v Depuysters." This hotel is a very fine one and everything is in order and genteel: a place where one would love to tarry, away from the business and care of a city. Mr. Depuyster himself attends to the wants of his visitors and supplies them well. While at this place we visited the splondid residence of W. D. M. Howard, Esq., whose claim of six miles square has just been confirmed. This is one of the most extensive, picturesque and beautiful estates in all California, and no man has done more for the advancement of the State than this gentleman—n...

Boston takes the Lead-$20,000 for the Fair. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855

Boston takes the Lead-$20,000 for the Fair. We announce with pride and pleasure the glorious example which Boston has set to all other cities in the Union, in behalf of the Agricultural State Fair, which is to be holden at that city, in the month of October next. The value of public Agricultural exhibitions has always been fully appreciated in the city of Boston, and in no place in the United States have they ever been gotten up with more splendor than in that city. So great has been the interest always felt that it would be considered derogatory for a citizen not to bo interested in them. The great gathering of the members of tho United States Agricultural Society has been secured to the city of Boston, by that love of public spirit which has always marked her course, and which has made her greatest among the great cities of our land in such enterprise. When this great meeting was announced, the city came forward and granted their public squares amounting to forty acres, with other...

That Supper! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855

That Supper! "A Dream that lean nut all a Dream." Already fatigued with a long ride over hill and through valleys, we still pressed on, that we might gain the end of our journey by land, and reach the steamer and there find rest. By hard riding the feat was accomplished, and after the necessary ablutions and change of dress usual after a very dusty ride, we found ourselves in a most luxurious bed in a splendid stateroom of one of the finest steamers that glide the golden waters of the Sacramento. How long we slept, or how long we dreamed, we have no positive record ; but this is a faithful transcript of our Dream : Itseemed like a reality, for the dream commenced with the same long ride we had that day accomplished, and we came down to the same wharf and saw the same steam er, that proud qucenlike looking palace the '"New World," that sits upon the water "like a thing of life,' —and we remember too. (as we dreamed on,) that we had been but a little time on the steamer after she left...
