THE EAGLE HAY PRESS. The above is a correct representation of this remarkable Eagle Hay Press, THE INVENTION OF J. A. McOILLIVRAL, OF ILLINOIS, TO WHOM LETTERS PATENT WERE ISSUED JANUARY 10TH, 1865, AND JULY 24TH, 1866. Several years were devoted by the patentee to the per. fection of this powerful press, and its unprecedented sale in the East induces the proprietors to introduce it into California and the Pacific States. All who have seen or used these Presses pronounce them superior to anything used heretofore. The power is applied by means of two levers, and it will be seen the power increases in ratio to the resistance; as the levers approach a horizontal position the power can scarcely be estimated. It is not only a powerful Press, but has the advantage of being Cheap, and also Simple, therefore not liable to get out of order. Three men with one horse can bale from Ten to Fifteen Tons per Day, each bale weighing 250 to 300 lbs. It obviates all necessity by beating the bay befor...

Selecting Cattle.—Ayrshires. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Selecting Cattle.—Ayrshires. There is no one breed of cattle universally adapted to any large extent of territory; neither is there any one breed equally well calculated for the purposes of the dairy and for fattening. A short-horn or an Ayrshire requires quite a different range from a Hereford or a Devon. The former delights in a rough, rolling country or in elevated mountain valleys; while the latter thrives best in low, warm pastures. If we place either of the former in a large, rich agricultural valley, like the Sacramento or the San Joaquin, they will be very likely to lose their characteristics in a few generations. So if we place either of the latter in a contracted mountain valley, a similar deterioration will take place. It is by reason of such facts as theso that we find such dissimilarity of opinion among farmers in their preferences — that one man will tell us the short-horn is the best animal he can raise, while another insists that the handsome, richcolored Devon is pr...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Burnt Iron and Burnt Steel.— This is the title of a paper read at a late meeting of the London Chemical Society, by W. Mattien "Williams. Nature for April 20th gives an abstract of it, from which we quote:—" Iron which has been damaged by reheating, or excessively heated and exposed after balling in the puddling furnace, is designated * burnt iron' by the workmen. It is remarkable that no amount of heat applied to the iron in the blast furnace or in the early stages of the puddling process produces burnt iron. Burnt iron is brittle, its fracture is sliort and what is called cryatalline, it has lost the fibrous character of good iron. If steel is raised to a bright red heat and suddenly cooled, it is rendered hard and brittle, but these conditions may be modified by the process of tempering; if, however, the steel be raised to a yellow or white heat, and then be suddenly cooled, it is no longer capable of being tempered by mere reheating. It is worthless for ordi...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Regional Elevations and Subsxdences. Lieut C E-Dutton read a paper April 7th before the American Philosophical Society, upon the causes of change in regional elevation, in which be advanced certain views of his own in regard to the changes effected in rocks while undergoing inotamorphism. Their specific gravity is undoubtedly changed; also their volume. If the volume is increased, there must be an expansion, and that can only take place in a vertical direction upwards. A decrease of volume would, similarly, occasion a subaidence. We quoto from an abstract of the paper in the U. S. Railroad Register "If we were to assume a change in the specific gravity of 1,000 feet of rock to the extent of five per cent, we could account for a change of level of 50 feet, and a series of rocks as thick as the carboniferous in this State, would, with an equal amount of change, give an alteration of level equal to the average altitude of tho North American Continent above the ocea...

Irrigation by Iron Pipes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Irrigation by Iron Pipes. Eds- Pbebs: —Serious as are the consequences to our State of another dry winter, it has certainly produced one good effect. It has thoroughly aroused our people, especially in the San Joaquin valley, to the vast importance of irrigation for our grain fields. Of the many plans proposed and on foot for this praiseworthy purpose, all wo have heard of up to this time are on the principlo of a ditch, or canal, beginning at some Huitable point on the Joaquin or its branches, and dug through the various portions of the valley where the water is to bo distributed. A different plan, ■which is in some respects peculiarly adapted to California, has been suggested to tho writer by a friend, and appears to prosent certain advantages that make it worthy of examination and discussion, oven if it should be considered, at first thought, too expensive to bo tested practically. But we hope an accurate estimate of the expense of constructing such a system will be made by those...

The Tea and Coffee Plant in California [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

The Tea and Coffee Plant in California Editors Pbess:—lt may not be uninteresting to many of your readers to state that both tea and coffee are indigenous plants in California. The tea plant or bush grows in Sierra and Plumas in abundance, wild, from which the Chinese manufacture excellent tea, better than the imported. [?] This fact I have been cognizant of since 1854-55, and have partaken of it often. It is a bush about four or five feet high, having serrated, olive-shaped leaves, and delights to grow on mountain sidesyiot far from some mountain stream, and is a hardy evergreen. Coffee grows everywhere below the granito formation on a slate soil. It is distinguished by its lancelated leaves, and peculiar berry, first bright red, then pur-plish-black. It is much sought after for browse especially by sheep and goats, and has the same anti-soporific 1 quality as its kindred of Tartary. The sheep who partake of it are extremely vigilant, especially the males. The berry is smaller and ...
