Shipping Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 23 November 1855

Shipping Potatoes. It will be easily recollected how abundant were the crops of Potatoes in 1853 and '54; millions of bushels were raised, and many millions perished by frost and rot; and- so low in price had they become by reason of their abundance, that thousands and tens of thousands of bags were given away for the carting, and thousands of bags lay and rotted on the wharves and in warehouses. We remember well of urging the attention of those interested to the subject of the manufacturing of starch for printers' use, (calico printers); it would have made a profitable thing, for the Potatoes could have been had for the hauling. We call attention again to the Potatoes, because they cau be raised here so abundantly as to be exported with great profit. In New York at the present time the price is high, and as flour and grain advances, potatoes will rise, and therefore it would be well to study how to keep Potatoes, after they are ready for shipping. Potatoes can be shipped with safet...

The Artesian Well at Grenelle, in France. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 23 November 1855

The Artesian Well at Grenelle, in France. The interest which is now being evinced in the subject of Artesian Wells, induces us to present a briel sketch of the famous Artesian at Grenellc, in Fiance, as described in 184(5, by Galignani's Guide to Paris, from which work we relect our data. This splendid achievement at that date may be looked upon as the pioneer effort, and at me pfßtwrr* *♦*»» » n a wi*bin <* very few years, the most astonishing results rhay be expected : It was toward the end oT 1833, that the contract tor boring to the depth of 1200 feet in search of water was made with M. Mulot, sen., of Epinay mir Seine, and on the Ist January, 1834, the work began. On December 31. 1836, the boring instrument had penetrated 383 metres, through strata of alluvial earth, sand, and successive, beds of Hint and chalk. In June, 1840, the borer had reached 4GG metres, and was still in the chalk. For some days before the 26th February, 1841, a greenish sand had been drawn up,...

Thanksgiving. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 23 November 1855

Thanksgiving. Whose heart does not throb, quicken, as the eye or ear catches this holy word? Linked as it is with oui Pilgrim Fathers, and with their struggles, their trials, nnd their victories—linked as it is with dear New England, yet it is a word that now belongs to all who claim to be descendant/ of the Pilgrims, or who love our history, our country, or our firesides nnd our 1 lonics. The return of this day towns Califomians, must recall scenes of by-gone years, where ar-j is linked the brightest visions of life and happiness; and it is to be hoped that although many may be separated from kindred and friends, ycf by tlie keeping alive this day, all will join in making it a daysacred to the memory of the past, and joyous in its associations of the present; thus laying a foundation for its continuance through all future years. The Proclamation of the Chief Magistrate will be found in our present issue, and is as brief as need be for such a document Wb have received from Robert T....

Keeping Sweet Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 23 November 1855

Keeping Sweet Potatoes. The time is near at hand when sweet potatoes for next year's seed should be packed away for the winter, and this is a suitable time to give the results of our experience and observation. Select fine days during the first and second weeks of October, and take the potatoes from the hills, carefully, so as not to bruise them ; let them dry thoroughly, but speedily, either irt the sun. or spread upon a floor under cover. The boxes or bins for stowing will be in size according to the quantity you wish to keep, but in no case over two feet in depth. Gather a sufficient quantity of sand or fine road-dust, and have it thoroughly screened and dried. Put a thin layer of sand upon the bottom of the box, and lay in a course of potatoes from eight to twelve inches thick, then pour in more sand till it fills all the insterstices between the potatoes to the bottom of the box. When this is done, next put in another course of potatoes, and then again pour on sand as before, a...

Massasoit Salve. Prominent among the new institutions of the day Hand* the famous Massasoit Salve—wluch unctuous preparation was tlie discovery of the celebrated Indian Chief whose uame it bears.

Country Residences—Trees for a Lawn. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 23 November 1855

Country Residences —Trees for a Lawn. The beautiful valleys that lie spread out over this State, and the thousand and tens of thousand charming spots that seem by nature designed for homes, should secure a more particular interest and attention from our citizens than has yet been given to the subject. These scenes in nature will always strike the mind of.a person of cultivated taste as far more beautiful than anything that man can deaign, and so they are, for here everything is planned and arranged in harmony. The rocks, trbks. grass, and flowers are all placed where they meet and please the eye, aad the gushing spring of water from the mountain aide is just where one would have it if he had desired it at the most appropriate spot. The winding path around the base of the hill is skirted with the small shrubs and flowers, and the broad avenue is shaded by the lofty oak and pine. Thus is it with every hill and mound, each is more or less covered with tree or shrub, to harmonize with t...

Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 23 November 1855

Marriage. Messrs. Editors : If you think the following of importance enough to insert in your paper you may do it. If not, throw it under the table : Is a Married Life to be Desired ? I answer that I believe marriage to have been instituted by the great Creator of all mankind for their especial benefit, and also as a source of the greatest happiness to be desired here upon earth ; but in the manner in which it is more generally entered into, I acknowledge that it is far from being desirable, I look upon it as being wholy within the power of the parties concerned. But should we listen to a great portion, I am sorry to say the greatest portion of married people, they would tell us new to marry. Would they speak the true sentiments of the heart 1 How often do we hear mothers giving this advice to their children : never marry— you are much happier single than married. And why? Because they really wish to keep them from ever experiencing the sad disappointments ever expectant from the to...
