Subsoil Plowing. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

Subsoil Plowing. This all-important subject is bo ably and thoroughly reported upon by the Secretary of the Mass. Board of Agriculture, C. L. Flint. Esq.. that we feel it highly necessary to present it to our readers. Subsoil plowing, we consider, in this State the most important subject of discussion that can b« laid before our cultivators, and while it has been urged upon their attention so often, it is so little understood and so little practiced, that thousands of dollars have been expended in irrigation, which would have been saved by subsoiling. In our examinations of farms and orchards we have never yet seen it tried without complete success..and we have found many la-ge establishments, farms and orchaads. where by subsoiling a/one. tbe most glorious results have been achieved. The Thompson Brothers' Ranch, peach orchard, nursery, and gardens, are a most successful proof of the Value of this method of cultivation. It is necessary, too. to know what subsoiling means, and what ...

Official County Statistics. EL DORADO COUNTY. Bbownsvillb, Oct. 15th, 1855. To S. H. Marlette, Esq., Surveyor General, Sacramento: Sir—l have the honor to transmit herewith my statistical report for El Doardo county for 1855. It is not as full as I could wish it, but it is as complete as circumstances will admit. If it is the desire of our Legislators to obtain correct statistical information, I would suggest the passage of an act authorizing the officers whose duty it maybe to collect the statistical data, to obtain the same under oath or affirmation —if this is not done, no reliance can be placed in tho statistics obtained, nor will they be complete unless so obtained. The following is as nearly correct as could be expected under the circumstances, viz.: Land inclosed for agricultural and grazing purposes, about 8,000 acres. No. of acres is wheat, 450 —yield per acre, 20 " " barley, 340— " " 28 " " oats, 387— " " 25 11 * hay, 1750 —per acre. 11-4 tons Fruit Trees.— Apple, 1,608 ; ...

What Shade Trees are Best. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

What Shade Trees are Best. j Allx'si >n having been made to this subject in 'another column, we shall now present our views relative to tbe kind of trees that should demand the attention of all who love Arboriculture. Sacramento is undoubtedly in advance of any other city on the Pacific Coast in the planting of shade and ornamental trees. Many of our genteel residences are now finely shaded by the Cottonwood, which is the tree that has been almost universally adopted. This tree has been planted extensively because it was the only one that could be had in any quantity, aud on account of its ready growth and its abundant shade. Had it not been for the abundant supply of this tree which has always been piled upon our levee, our city* would even now have been like other cities, barren of the beauty which such shade affords. But the question now arises, what trees s.ha\l we plant? what trees are best? Shall we plant Cottonwoods ? We answer emphatically, no! Shall we plant Aila...

Treadwell's Clipper Plow. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

Treadwell's Clipper Plow. It is important that farmers should always have the very best implements—economy is wealth." In each and every department it should be the aim of tbe farmer to have only the best: the beat working oxen and horses, the best plows, Waggons and harness. For his family or dairy use, the best cows, and domestic animals of all the best breeds. His houses should haye tlio best conveniences, and bis barns and graneries built upon the most approved plans, his corrals strong and high for his stock, to guard them from escape or depredation. The farmer's fences should be in the best order; his seed should be the purest and the best, and in order that his seed may do well, his ground should be plowed deep and fine, and cultivated in the best manner. The plow is the '"great weapon of the farmer." If he uses a poor plow—if his lands are shallow plowed, they cannot be well cultivated, and the consequence will be his seed may spring up, but, having no depth of earth, it per...

Correction. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

Correction. j The elegant " Bitting Harness," exhibited at the late State Fair by A. T. Nelson, of this city, jand reported by the committee of award as of foreign manufacture,and thorefore not entitled to a premium, was manufactured by Mr. Nelson at bis place on X street, Sacramento. It is not only a beautiful, but a very valuable improvement on the ordinary fixtures for such purposes, arid is every way worthy of a high reward. Having just learned of the above mistake t hasten to correct it by the first issue of the Society's organ, without waiting for a meeting of the Executive Committee, at the next session of which, I have no doubt, a suitable award will be made. 0, C.

The Disease in Poultry—Reply. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

The Disease in Poultry—Reply. We publish the following letter from Dr. W. W. Chapman, the proprietor of the remedy for diseases in fowls, in answer to the inquiry of ■ Colfbn," from Stockton. This is an important subject, and worthy the immediate attention of poultry raisers. The facts stated by Dr. Chapman we know can be relied on, and as many new and valuable varieties of fowls are being introduced from China, the disease should be arrested ere its effects are too fatal: Vallkjo, Nov. 5, 1855. Editors Farmer: I notice in your paper of Nov. 2d an inquiry from " Colfon," of Stockton, desiring information in relation to the diseases of domestic fowls and a remedy for tho same.

A Modest Man. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

A Modest Man. Wh have found a wonder! and reader what do you think it is? A very modest man, and that man an editor, a political editor too, a gentleman and a scholar, an amateur in the finest works of art; the embellisher of nature's beautiful landscapes ; the cultivator of all the pets which the goddess Flora commits only to her worshippers 4— 'such a man we have found. And how can we account for this strange phenomena in a political editor? Simply by the influences of a rural life, held up in contrast before the boisterous unhappy toil of a politician. Such must ever be the result, and we were happy to note this influence over the whole man. All those genial influences that shine out divinely in man's nature while holding converse with nature, are crushed by the hardening influence of political strife, and only return to him when he returns to nature. Thus it was with our friend amid the din and strife of the " ins and outs," the " loaves and fishes;" that better and diviner natu...

Twenty-seventh Annual Exhibition of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. The Exhibition commenced on the 18th of Sept.. at the Boston Musical Hall, one of the best places in the city for the display, and the committee were very wise in choosing this spacious temple, as it is Very central, arid fully answers the purpose. The display was the finest for rhany years, and the attendance Of Visitors very large.

Female Equestrians. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

Female Equestrians. The papers from the States by the last mail, contain numerous reports of the performances by Ladies, and all such reports are highly creditaole to the performers. The following is from the New York Herald, of October 2d : The Albany County Fair closed last week, with a riding match. The attendance was large—the receipts over $3,000. But two ladies presented themselves as contestants: Miss Elizabeth Morey. of Brunswick, and Mrs. Hallet, of Albany. The Argus describes Miss Morey as a dashing, easy rider, who manages her steed skillfully. Another Albany paper says she sits on a horse like a trooper, and possesses a degree of coolness that peculiarly fits her for the wants of a saddle. The competitors passed three times round the course; once on a walk, once on a trot, and once on the gallop. Miss Morey was mounted on a glorious animal, and doing her mile inside of two minutes, when her girt broke, casting a degree of alarm for the instant. She retained the reins, ho...

Hindrances to Immigration. Wk have often reverted to the effect made upon j thi minds of people in the old States by local j newspapers, in the publication of tha dark aide \ only of California. The terrible array of murders, assassinations, lynchings, street brawls, duels (only another name for murder), embezzlements, frauds, forgeries, bank failures, &c; these, with sheriff sales, foreclosures of mortgages, and backed up by adding the reports from Recorders' courts. painted in fancy colors; and to these add divorcements, elopcmeats, ie, with a grand finale of Indian atrocities, these are the pictures held up before those whom we would invite to th* Pacific shores. We refer to this subject now. having received the annexed letter from the East by la.it steamer, which clearly points out this effect, more strongly than wo have stated it.

Reaping Machines. The folio . ing description from the Paris Constitutionel. is translated into the English papers, from one of which it is taken: I'ahis, August 7, 1855. The second day of August having been appointed for the final trial of all the reaping and mowing machines in the Exhibition, the trial accordingly came off on that day. There were ten machines in the Exhibition ; nine of them were sent out by the Imperial Commissioner to the place of trial, about forty miles distant.

Remarkable Sport of Phlox Drummondii. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

Remarkable Sport of Phlox Drummondii. It is one of the peculiar features in vegetable physiology, that the progeny of many plants, more or less depart from tbe original types, and which is understood in botanical and floricultnral phraseology, as "sporting." In other words, that the seed sown, will not produce precisely tbe same type as ite parents ; in some the difference is very while in others it is scarcely if at all perceptible. It is to this principle we are indebted for much of the luscious fruit that supplies our tables, and many of the choicest flowers that deck our gardens. It is sometimes apparent in nature's own sowings, in the woods and tho bye-ways, but more especially so in the members of the cultivated garden. The Phlox Drummondii, well known to everybody who knows what annuals are, is one of the cases in point, and perhaps with* out exception the finest annual grown for decorative purposes. When first introduced from this continent to Europe, not many years since, t...

Ashes in Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

Ashes in Agriculture. "Wood ashes is one of the most important fertilizers. It is easily obtained in any quantity, and at little expense. Take them carefully from your hearths, and save them till your corn and potatoes have risen two or three inches fiom the ground, and then tako a basket on your arm, and from it take a small handful of ashes and cast it at the root of your plants, and hoe them soon, so as 10, cover the ashes. Ashes contain all the inorganic substance of the wood or plants which are consumed; part of these are soluble and part insoluble. But tbe soluble substance fixed with water will dissolve the insoluble. Thus, dissolved potash will dissolve silica, and prepare it for glazing the stalks of cane, corn, wheat. Ac. Not a particle 6f ashes should go to waste. Leached ashes has parted with most of its potash, but it still retains its phosphoric acid and most of its lime. Ashes meutralizc acids in the soil; they warm cold, mossy, wet places; they are very destructive t...

How to Prevent and Cure Kicking Cows. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 9 November 1855

How to Prevent and Cure Kicking Cows. A correspondent, " Old Farmer," writes thus to Fowler & Wells' Life Illustrated : In most cases the habit of kicking is contracted during the first month af er the cow has had her fust calf. If, as is often the case with well-fed heifers, the udder is a little feverish at the time, it often becomes so sore that it is impossible for the poor creature to stand still while the necessary milking ia being done. Following the instinct of nature, she kicks; aud finding she is thus for tbe moment freed from pain, continues to do it till the anger of the milker is aroused, aud then a bad matter is made much worse. It is better in the first rjiace to tie the heifer by the head, then set your left shoulder gently but firmly against her. just back of her right shoulder, grasp firmly her right fore leg below the knee, turning her foot up backward till it touchesathe leg. then slip on over the knee a strap, or hoop, or cord that will confine it fa...
