Letters from the Coast Range. – No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
Letters from the Coast Range. - No. 1. We know it will afford our readers great pleasure to hear that we are to have a series of Letters from the same pen whence emanated those deeply interesting and graphic skethes of the "Mammoth Treo," -'Caves of Calaveras," &amp;c, which were published in our journal the last year, and copied so -widely. In the Letter which we lay before our readers to-day, we have an inkling of what is ir i store for us and our readers. Our eye catches th c " Guysers " as the chief attraction for the writer; and we feel confident we shall have from his gifted pen a description of thcoc wonders, that will stir the warm blood around the heart. And then 100 the "scenes in the mountains" — the writer says they collected their " traps for the journey," prepared for the deer, elk, and grizzly, as also for the piscatory tribe—and of these s ports and dangers we are to hear—the chase of the "swift of foot," the close hug of the grizzly, and those famous nibbles...
Our Boston Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
Our Boston Correspondence. letter no. 4. Boston, August 12, 1855. Editors Farmer : Since ruy last to you, 1 have received letters from different sources, upon the crops, &amp;c, in various sections of the country, and which may interest your readers. Continued accounts are received of the abundance of the crops in all quarters of the country, and it appears beyond doubt, that there never was so much wheat grown in the country before; and it has been and is being gathered into the garner in excellent condition. In Illinois the wheat crop is everything that the farmer could ask, and the whole range of other crops never promised such abundance before. At Alton, in Illinois, the corn '' reaches from six to ten feet in bight, each stalk generally bearing two huge ears of corn, as lung as an ax handle." All accounts from lowa represent the wheat harvest as a most bountiful one, In Missouri the wheat has all been gathered, and the granaries of tho farmers are overflowing. Kentucky ...
Caleb Crusty's Experience. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
Caleb Crusty's Experience. Messrs. Editors: In response to your intimation in the Farmer of the 7th inst., soliciting contributions on the subject of " home blessings and comforts/ with Essays on Wives, Sisters, &amp;c, and ending with a little soft soap about able writers and so forth, I have come to the conclusion to write you an unvarnished account of the influence of my three sisters on my domestic tranquility, and how they manage to keep me in such perpetual trouble, that I really wish you could get some of your Mormon readers, if you have any, to take the whole off my hands at once, and leave me to find comfort and happines in my own way. When I came out here in '49,1 was poor, but, being a regular down-easter, I knew how to turn my hand to almost anything. So I set to carpenter work; and, though I had never before done anything of the sort, beyond building a fence, or making a hen-coop. I soon found myself a master builder, with some half dozen young lads at work for ...

Rural Lays—No. 7. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
Rural Lays—No. 7. DREAMING. " In maiden meditation fancy free," Such pleasing day-dreams oft occur to me • While forth I wander, at the close of day, To weave my wild, unpolished rural lay ; When lengthening shadows mark the sun's decline, And Nature's harmonies accord with mine. But when the envious Night shuts out irom view The latest sunlit cloud, of golden hue, And Sleep, her sister, aids her in the strife Of robbiug half the world of half their life: When all the flowers their little leaflets close, And I, like them, have sought her dear repose, How often, then, comes Fancy with a train Of phantoms flocking through my youthful brain I Last night, for instance, scarcely yet asleep, While Memory still did half her vigil keep, Methought that Squatter, Rural Turn, and Pike, ' (The last of whom I cordially dislike,) And Forty-nine came " brattling down the brae," In such a cheerful, careless, huppy way, I felt, at once, I'd have no easy part To keep unskaithed my tender, truthful he...
SONG OF THE HOPEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
SONG OF THE HOPEFUL. MISS FORTUNE Nay, tell me not that all is sorrow; But rather let me hope in vain— Let fancy picture for the morrow, Some scene to glad the heart again. Nay, teach me not to fear the future; I love to think it may be bright i We have enough to-day of darkness, Tell me not of to-morrow's night. Though storm clouds gather thick and faster, Vet will I hope they'll clear away, And, if they orush me not in passing, Hope for a brighter, better day. Hope ! thou sweet, delusive something, Ever cheering our dark way; Oh I I pray thou'lt never leave me, Thou that art my only stay.
A Life Sketch. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
A Life Sketch. MISS FORTUNE I once had a fair young friend, as gay and light-hearted as the birds of summer, without thought or care for tho morrow; the idol and pet at home, and general favorite abroad. When quite young she had a lover who made proposals for her hand, but was rejected by her father, in view of her extreme youth; over which calamity the sweet innocent of thirteen made bitter lamentation. Well, they separated: he went South and she went West. Two years elapsed, and the ' lover visited her again. This time the father did not object to his addresses; but something went wrong with the lovers. She became impressed with the idea that he had become immoral, (whether right or wrong, I know not,) and from the impulse of the moment, dismissed him without giving him an opportunity for explanation. A year passed, she was introduced to a gentleman, (in appearance,) who became another suitor. He was a Methodist by profession, and passed for genuine. She had no fears for his moral...
COME BACK. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
COME BACK. LOTTIE LINWOOD Come back I I long to clasp thy hand, And press my lips to thine, To hear thy voice in tones of love, Still answer back to mine. There is a shadow on the flowers That traces out thy name, I yearn for love like thine of yore, Say, art thou still the same ? I hear sweet words around me, words Of love and kindly cheer, That stir the fount of gratitude, But ah! Thou art not here 1 And I've a joyful heart to sing, Life is so dear to me; But over every glorious thing Are shadows, love, of thee. And 'mid the dim soft tracery That pencils o'er life's track— My spirit fondly calls for thee— Come back to me, come back t
The True Aim of Life. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
The True Aim of Life. To one just entering upon the duties of active life, no question can be more important than— " For what purpose was I created ? what is the great object to which my future life should be devoted ?" I think this question should be satisfactorily settled before a single step be taken by the young into the untried future. No one should go forth single handed and alone into the broad battle-field of life, without having a just conception of what he is designed to accompjish. And yet how many do, without any definite object in view. Fired with youthful enthusiasm; and impelled by the ardor of their feelings, they take upon themselves the solemn responsibilities, knowing little of the stern reality that awaits them. Momentary success awaits them and may attend their efforts and inspire them with the most glowing hopes for the future; but soon, alas! the dream of their imaginations gives place to the sober convictions of reason ; the bubbles that so late amused them v...

An Incident in the Life of a New York Fireman. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 September 1855
An Incident in the Life of a New York Fireman. The following thrilling story, exhibiting the heroism of a New York Fireman, we clip from the New York Tribune. The facts were narrated by an eye witness: " It was the night of the 17th of March. 1852. A heavy sleet had fallen during the day and the streets were covered with slush and mud. The Spring of that year was very backward and the night to which we refer was quite as cold as any in January. The alarm of "fire" was pealed from the City Hall bell and thencecommunicated to the various other watch-towers throughout the city. Engines rushed through the muddy streets, the ropes manned as well as though the weather had been pleasant; for changes in season do not, retard the fireman in the performance of his duty. Onward they go. the men cheering each other on their way. Arrived at the scene of action, it is found that the house, No. 89 1-2 Bowery, is completely at the mercy of the flames. It is a large double building, and the fire, or...
