Omissions. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 19 October 1855

Omissions. From various causes over which the Executive Committee had no control, several articles which were on exhibition escaped the observation of the committees in whose departments they severally belonged. By reason of the absence of some members of those committees whose province it was to prepare the details of reports, errors and omissions have occurred which the government very much regret; but when the magnitude of the enterprise is contemplated, when the unceasing and innumerable claims upon the time of the Executive are seen by these reports—when these are truly considered, then an apology will not be needed from them for what has been left undone. Some committees left but pencilings of their labors, and these briefly naming the person to whom the award was made ; others enter into a detail of reasons irrelavent to the subject; again others do not define or do not understand the work in hand, and have performed their duty in haste; while some have not reported at all.

Great Staple of California—Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 October 1855

Great Staple of California—Tobacco. This product must inevitably become a great staple production of California. The samples of Tobacco at the Fair, by J. R. Jonnson, of Sacramento, were of superior quality, The manner of cultivation and the success that attends it, as noted by him in the following letter, are worthy especial notice. Dr. Brown, of this city, presented at the Fair a plant in a growing State, as a handsome ornamental plant, in a tub, and when in full foliage and bloom like this, it is very beautiful; .his. with other specimens, is highly creditable to him. We hope due attention will be given to Mr. Johnson's letter; ho is a practical and earnest cultivator. Our friend the Doctor is also one of our best amateur cultivators. Annexed is Mr. Johnson's letter: Home Wood Garden, American Flat, ) Sacramento countTi Oct. 8, 1855. J Editors Farmer: 1 take pleasure tocommunicate through your much valued paper, the California Farmer, my knowledge and experience in the cultivatio...

California Seeds—Illinois Osage Orange. Bull ard's I! ah, El Dorado county, Sept. 24, 1855, Messrs. Warren & Son : Gentlemen—A few days since I received a le'tor from Professor J. B. Turner, of Illinois, a distinguished agriculturist and horticulturist of whom you have probably heard. I had sent to Prof. Turner some time ago, some seed of grass gathered upon Humboldt (or Mary's) river, which I thought might be valuable for hay; and some Alfalfa, or Chili clover seed. He acknowledges the receipt of the seed, and writes: "The California clover did admirably, and will be of great value in this and the adjoining States. It is now (20th May) up knee high, and ready for mowing. The other specimen of grass was so given to spreading, that I was afraid it wonld be extremely troublesome, and was therefore obliged to cut it up. I should be exceedingly glad to receivo any seeds from you, which in your opinion would be valuable to us in Illinois, and will take the greatest care in th...

Letters from the Coast Range.—No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 October 1855

Letters from the Coast Rang e.—No. 4. Gkvsers, H*\>t. 12, 1855. Editors Farmer : Camp life is apt to make green hands at the business rise early in the morning, and so-betimes, (yesterday,) we woke with the birds, and chatted and laughed over our hot coffee as they warbled and frisked among the broad-spreading oaks and the dark-wooded ravines that composed the scenery around us. Mr. Iredale and our zealous young Ximiod were off early with their rifles, and, descending the steep declivity, crossed the fine little brook at the bottom of the ravine, called Plutou river, to scour the woods of the opposite bill sides for game. The distant crack of their guns, now and then, told us of their enjoyments, and thoMgh several deer were shot at, and a grizzly wounded, our palates were no bettor off for their bad luck. The Indian was left to clear up the kitchen, while Godwin led Parker, Johnson, and myself, over tho sloping irregularities of the mountain side, to give us our first vi...

Our Boston Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 October 1855

Our Boston Correspondence. LETTER NO. 7. Boston, Sept. 18th, 18. r >s. The lnte severe drought has seriously affected the Crops which have not been gathered in, and caused the farmers much damage. Day after day has passed for six long weeks, and no rain, and the earth is parched and dry. Even the trees have suffered, and the whole country is drying up for want of rain. The full crop of grass will be meager enough, and hay will command high prices; vegetables are plenty, however, —and in the country, abundance of all kinds. In Portsmouth, N, 11., potatoes are selling at forty cents per bushel; while in Boston, they sell in the markets and provision stores, at twenty-five cents per peck. Reports are now coming in from all sections of the country, and I will give you a summary of the Crops in the southern and western country, from my correspondence. In Georgia, the largest wheat crop ever known ; corn crop immense— never better ; cotton very promising. Alabama — cotton good ...

"THE HEART THAT KNOwETH ITS OWN BITTERNESS." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 October 1855

"THE HEART THAT KNOwETH ITS OWN BITTERNESS." ALICE There is a little unseen world— Oh, tell me, is there not T Within each fond and glowing heart, Where strangest things are wrought; A world of thrilling prospects, And of ravishing delight; A world of keenest bitterness, And aye, of blackest night. A spot where none may enter, Though ne'er so kind and true, For an angel guards the portal, And will not let you through j Shut out from all observers, There may we revel free— indulge our sweetest fancies — Enjoy our brightest glee. But one there is, and only, Whose eye surveys the whole, Whose voice can still the tempest That rages in the soul. He knows our feeble nature, And He kindly deigns to live Within our hearts, to guide us, If we will but believe.
