Important to Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Important to Farmers. Stockton, Nov. 7, 1855. Mr. Warren : Dear Sir—Allow me to call the attention of your readers to the circular of Lieut. Maury, calling on the farmers and others throughout the United States, to keep correct metereological tables of the weather, and return them to the Central Committee at Washington City, at the end of the year—say commencing on the 15th of Nov.. which I think would be a good time to commence this year,—as far as regards our climate and State. Now some one should take it upon himself, in each county ; as the climate differs materially, even in the same latitude of our country, i. e. the Pacific Coast. Let us hear if someone will volunteer in the cause, in Humboldt Los Angeles. Mariposa, Calaveras, San Francisco. Santa Clara, Shasta, El Dorado and Sonoma counties About 9 A. M. and P. M., would be a good time to take note of. It would also be useful to add the quantity of rain (the depth of course) that has fallen each twenty-four hours; and the co...

Steam for Agricultural Purposes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Steam for Agricultural Purposes. The Royal Agricultural Society of England have offered a premium of two hundred pounds for the best steam-cultivator or substitute for the plow. The competition was to take place at the annual exhibition of the Royal Agricultural Society at Carlisle, July 19th. As the subject has excited very considerable attention in England, we copy from the English Agricultural Ga«ettc, a letter addressed to the committee having control of tho awards, in which are set forth the alleged advantages of the steam cultivator or digger, over the plow and spade. The inventive genius of the two countries; heretofore chiefly directed to other branches of industry, has now fairly turned toward Agriculture. But a few years ago Reaping and Mowing Machines were thought impracticable, and seeing what has been done in them and other implements, it will hardly do to be startled now even at tho idea of the introduction of steam for Agricultural purposes. The article is as follows:...

Carson Valley—Emigrant Wagon Road. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Carson Valley—Emigrant Wagon Road. Sacramento, Nov. 2d, 1855. Agreeably to your request I herewith transmit you a few hasty notes, made during my recent trip to Carson Valley. Accompanied by Col. J. O. Johnson, Major Bee, and Mr. Gage, member of Assembly of El Dorado county, I left Placerville on horseback to examine the route of survey of the proposed wagon road to the Eastern line of the State. For seventeen miles to Rogers' Bridge, our courso lay along the south bank of the south Fork of the American river, over a beautiful ridge of heavily timbered pine land, dotted everywhere with evidences of nourishing farms, saw mills and mining enterprises. From the table land to the bridge, we descend by a steep zigzag road, thence ascending the North bank commence the real difficulties of the journey, as the present road here rises by a steep ascent for nearly three miles, following the ridge in a circuitous course, and alternating up hill and down. The country to the East. For twenty mil...

The Exportations of Gold—Effect of the European War. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

The Exportations of Gold—Effect of the European War. We were turning our thoughts to the subject of the continual drain of specie from our State. and the consequences upon our industrial interests, when we noticed the following article, which vre copy from the N. Y. Herald of Oct. 2d, as fully expressive of the subject. We commend it to our mercantile community at the present time, for the day is not very distant when the influence of this continual drain will be felt in our own country with a violence that shall be of terrific power. The impression that we shall continue to export specie without regard to the condition of our foreign trade, is gradually gaining ground. The continuance of the war upon a scale more extensive than has yet been realized, will make it necessary for the governments of Great Britain and France to obtain supplies of gold at any cost, and their financial agents will naturally look to our receipts from California to meet that demand. It has been our belief f...

The Capital. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

The Capital. "we are at home." As the period is approaching when the Legis- [ lature again convenes for the transaction of the State's business, Sacramento will become a very attractive spot. Duty, business, pleasure, each will summon men to the capital, and the city will be the theatre of many a busy and active scene, as well as gay and festive ones. Among the masses that shall congregate in our city from time to time, there will be many that take an interest in the science of Agriculture and Horticulture, and we feel it a duty to lay before our readers all the information in our power upon this subject, by which they may be interested while at the capital. We believe that the citizens of Sacramento will do al! in their power to tender to those who reside with us the coming winter the courtesios and hospitalities of the city and to make the season a source of (he most interesting and valuable intellectual social visitings that can be found in the whole year. Visitors from abroad wi...

Smut in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Smut in Wheat. This subject is one of vital importance to the Grain growers in California, and as the evil which has caused so much loss, and so loud complaint, is one that can be easily remedied, if those who are much interested will take the necessary steps to accomplish it, we call their attention to the following as matters of moment, and ask the kindly co-operution of all our grain growers to the subject. The frequent inquiries that are made of us upon the subject of Smutty Wheat, induces us to lay before our readers the following article, which we published in March last. We re-publish it, as the season approaches for the planting of grain—the remedy is simple and easy, and we have faith in it, and coming from a reliable source, is worthy the confidence of the public. The letter from which we now make the extract, was published in Vol. 3, No. 10, —and from E. S. Jai vis. Esq., of Vine Springs Ranch, Columbia : '' In the Atlantic States in 180G, I sowed wheat ( spring wheat, fo...

Shipping Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Shipping Wheat. We believe our farmers are growing wise relative to the various plans adopted to affect the Grain Market, by a class of speculators that are scattered over the State. We have often met them and have been amused at the strategy employed to affect tho price of grain in localities where they were desirous of operating, They make considerable use of the Assessors' reports of the quantity of grain raised in the State, and by figures make a large surplus. With a full report of all the counties, and a recapitulation, there will be seen at a glance that our State comes short of a supply, to say nothing of the grain that has been exported; and from this amount is still to be taken the seed grain that will be retained. The lastModge we have noticed was the publication of the arrival of tho clipper ship Charmer at New York, with a cargo of wheat in bad condition, selling at $I 50 per bushel. Remember the speculators got this news. When, the owners got their letters, not a bag w...

The Grain Market. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

The Grain Market. Ws present our readers in this issue with a valuable report of the Grain Market and its particular features on the first of the month, as furnished us by the house of G. G. Pope & Co.. produce dealers, San Francisco, in their circular of that date. We publish this report in detail, as it contains many features relative to grain that we had urged in past months, and which are now fully nerified by the present markets. We call particular attention to the remarks relativo to the estimates of farmers made by themselves previous to harvesting, and to the estimates of the assessors; to the facts relative to the condition of the wheat, and to the demands from Europe. These are points that we have repeatedly urged, and which wil- now result beneficially to the farmer if ,c has regarded them. We have published the detailed report of flour, potatoes and beans, as being articles of large trade and affecting the farming interest. If such reports be saved on file fo...

A Successful Medicine. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

A Successful Medicine. Dyspepsia.—What a world of misery is contained in this sinsle word. What disease so utterly dispiriting, so hope destroying, so fraught with wretchedness as this! Let the continned Dyspeptic answer. It is estimated that more than half the suicides that occur, could be traced to the state of mind induced by this di-ease. A thousand and one remedies have been ottered for its cure, but nearly all have been " found wanting." We know of but one reliable remedy, one that has proved itself in scores of well attested cases, a cure for dyspepsia in its worst forum. W« •tsfm- tv rtie merttiluc Kuutvu the Oxygenated Bitters—the production of an eminent physician. They contain no alcohol, and are sour rather than hitter to the taste. Of their efficacy, none who try them can doubt. Many of the most respectable citizens oi Boston have certified to their curative powers, and they are already a standard medicine—having the approval of nearly all our physicians who are slow to...

"THERE CAME AN ANGEL TO MY HOME." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

"THERE CAME AN ANGEL TO MY HOME." MRS. H. K. G. AREY The Croat hud spoiled tho dowers that wove Thair w rem lis about my cot, But could not chill the blooui of love, The (lower that fadeth not. And though the autumn wiads had reft The clustering vines apart, The birds that nested there had left Their songs within my heart. But ere the Mowers returned to bloom, Know ye the blessing given t There came an angel to my borne; The faire*t out of Heaven. A blessed sprite, with wings concealed, And some forgotten name; And eyes whose holy depths revealed. The Eden whence she came. Ah me I the birds have never tried Such songs as charmed my ear; The common sunshine dimmed beside This suushine, doubly dear. What cared I then that wealth should come, Or fame or friends be given! There dwelt an angel in my home ; The fairest out of Heaven. A tiny, d mpled form oi grace, A footfall here nnd there, And kisses gushing o'er my face, Aud through the glowing n r. And now, when o'er the cottage floor ...

Cutting an old Friend. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Cutting an old Friend. Many years aso, the good ship " Cleopatra " arrived in Baltimoro. with a hundred steerage passengers from the Emerald Isle. Among the number were two young men from Tyrone, who had married just on the eve of sailing, and had come with their buxome brides to seek their fortunes in America. The latter had grown up side by side from girlhood, and wero intimate as sisters. The former were no less intimate and attached to each other. The names of these adventurers were Terence Learv and his wife Margaret, and Andy O'Shane and "his wife Biddy, or Bridget. The first idea of coming to America had been suggested by Leary. who was a quick, intelligent young man. and had conceived the notion that a fortune was to be made in the now country across the Atlantic, from which ever and anon were coming the most inspiring intelligence to the enterprising and ambitious. He had been during two or three years gardener for an Irish gentlemen, in whose family Maggy, his wife, had fo...

SONNET TO THE OLD OAK. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

SONNET TO THE OLD OAK. Majestic Oak, when first I saw Thy stately form, and spreading bough. My soul inspired a gentle awe, Impassioned lore for thee 1 row'd. For centuries thou hast stood, old tree, And smiled to brave each raging storm, Then spread thy bi anchei over me, While I admired they stately form. Our humble cot was quickly reared Beneath thy spreading shade; A princely dome it soon appeared, As thy safe pinions o'er it swayed. Upon thy limbs the children swing, Like fairies dancing in the air: I beard their happy voices ring— Ah, yes I like fairies, they were fair. I aaw a traveler faint and sick. Beneath thy grateful shade, old tree ; I bathed his brow, I gave him drink, As blessings he invoked for me. There the sweet robin reared her young; The martin sang her matin song , The couch my dying sister swung On thy paternal arms so strong. " Sister," she said, and smiled on ma, *' Why don't my Saviour take ma now f" And when I cast a glance at thee, I still can view her mar...

Who are Our Friends? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 16 November 1855

Who are Our Friends? Who shall we call our friends ? Are those our friends who flatter most, praising with enthusiasm all our acts, charmed with beauty, where the truthful heart would acknowledge no beauty ? ever blowing a silvery trumpet in our ears, using all their powers to call forth but one look or word of vanity from our unguarded confiding hearts ? One that tells you that you are wise, lovely and fortunate; offering friendship and confidence, unsought? one that leads you to some new and pleasing theme, because they envy your prosperity in your good old well known, well beaten track, seeking to lure you on, crying safety ! when they sec you upon the brink of ruin ? Such will come quizzing and peering into your past life, smiling and clinging about your pathway in a manner that you cannot condemn ; still your feel a chill freezing the warm blood that would burst from your heart. No, dear reader, they seek but to know the pearl you prize the most; and, if/found, they will bind y...
