A Singular Couple. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 February 1855

A Singular Couple. Aldng with my brother, who was collecting; matter for a work he was about to publish, 1 visited the interesting town of llexahm, —interesting at least to him, for it was a flue field for historical research, although for my own part I found little to admire besides its ancicnt church. The circumstance which, more than anything else, obtained the dingy town a lasting plac c in my memory, was our taking a lodging with an extraordinary pair, nn old man and woman, husband and wile, who lived by themselves, without child or servant, subsisting on the letting of their parlor and two bedrooms. They were tall, thin and erect, though each seventy years of age. When we knocked at the door for admittance, they answered it together; if we rang the bell, the husband and wife invariably appeared 6ide by side ; all our requests and demands were received by both, and executed with the utmost nicety and exactness. The first night, arriving late by coach from Newcastle, and merely ...

[Prwtit th« North Ainurlatn BERKELEY'S VISIT TO AMEllK V. BY H. T. TI'CttERMiN". In 1725, Bishop Berkeley published his proposals in explanation of his long-cherished purpose : at the same time he oTered to resign his livings, and to consecrate the remainder of his days to this Christian undertaking. So magnetic were his appeal and example, that three of his brother-fell ows ;it, Oxford decidcd to unite with him in the expedition. Many eminent' and wealthy persons were induced to contribute,their inHucnce and money to the cause. But he did not trust wholly to such means. Having ascertainad the worth of a portion of the St. Christopher's lands ceded by France to Great Britain by the tre\ty of Utrecht, and about to bo disposed of for public advantage, he undertook to realize from them larger proceeds than had been anticipated, and suggested that a certain amount of these funds should be devoted to his college.

FRO.V TMIi MINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 22 February 1855

FROM THE MINES. Los Angeles Star. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1855. <> The mining news from Kern River still continues encouraging, and miners from all sections of the country are on their way thither, by land and by sea. The steamship *America* brought down an unusual large number of passengers, most of whom were men bound for the mines. Our public houses are crowded with strangers, although every kind of conveyance is called into requisition to get to the diggings. Some miners are at work on this side of the San Fernando Pass, and are reported to be doing very well. Rumors are in circulation that rich diggings have been discovered on the eastern base of the Sierra Nevada, and that many miners are employed there, and although we cannot trace this information to any certain source, we are inclined to place confidence in the report, as some fine specimens have been brought in purporting to have come from that region.

Culture at Ihr Grapr. The Grano i* almost universally nrouacratod in [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 22 February 1855

Culture of the Grape. The Grano i* almost universally nrouacratod in The Grape is almost universally propagated in California by cuttings, and although some writers on the Management of the Grape are of the opinion that layers will furnish more vigorous plants and the cultivator surer of success, we are assured there is scarcely an instance known where this mode has been adopted in this State. Grafting is sometimes necessary, and is resorted to to improve the fruit of large and healthy vines, but the operation requires much skill and experience to be successful. Son..—Downing in his excellent treatise on the Grape snys: -The essence of all that can be wild in Grape Culture, respecting soil, is that it be dry. light, deep and rich. There Is, however, much difference of opinion among snmo of our most experienced horticulturists in regard to the soil best adapted to the Grap*. Some of our cultivators prefer a light sandy soil, and nre of the opinion that the fruit is far superior in ll...

Correspondence of the Lou Angeles Star. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 22 February 1855

Correspondence of the Lou Angeles Star. Santa Barbara, February 11th, 1855. Editor of the Star—Dear Sir : Although the Southern Californian may consider the roa-1 from Los Angeles to the mines the best, and although that journal "independent in all things but neutral in nothing," may think there is no place like the "City of Angels," won't the worthy editor of the Californian allow me the gratification of sending a few items to your reallv excellent journal. If he should say >'no correspondence should be allowed from that "dried up" town, Santa Barbara, why, I shall "dry up" also, but I'm certain the handsome editor of the Southern Californianwill allow me to give a few items' of the "Barbaraniaus." Since the news brought by the last steamer of the richness of theJKern River mines, a great many persons have left, and 1 others are preparing to leave for the land of gold. Picks, pork, shovels, hard ' bread and pans are at a premium, and in place of ! the merchant with a lon...
