Educate ! Educate !! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

Educate ! Educate !! Believing it our duty to urge the subject of education at all times, and to use all the means in our power to promote it, we avail ourselves of every opportunity to investigate the subject and whenever we find ourselves in tho vicinity of an institution of learning, or country school-house, we foel a desire to enter and witness these crucibles of human thought, and to watch the process of "separating the gold from the dross." We have been a gold digger, and havo rocked the "cradle" many a day at the river side. We havo worked at the "sluice" and have pounded the "quartz," all to obtain gold; and the processes of education are as various as gold seeking. We are sometimes pained upon entering a school room of young children to see them cribbed and cooped into a close, ill-ventilated school room, sixty, seventy or eighty little ones and one teacher, and here for long, long hours— two long sessions—these humans are drilled, more like soldiers preparing for battle, t...

Flouring Mills of Stockton. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

Flouring Mills of Stockton. While in Stockton the part week, we seized the opportunity to examine the Flouring Mill*, and foun 1 much to Interest. The San Joaquin Mill, recently owned by Paige & Webster, but now by Wm. Neely Thompson, Esq., of San Francisco, is a large and veryfine three-sto-y brick Mill, with six run of stone; four for wheat, one for barley, and one for middlings. The mill is driven by a fine engine of seventy-five horse power—a half-beam engine, as they are termed; we believe this is the only one of the kind in any mill in the country. This mill, which runs day and night, turns out two hundred and twenty-five barrels per day, and the flour finds ready sale. P. O. C. Newell is the miller. Grimes' Smut Mill is used here ; in addition to which, Newell's new patent is also used, and gives great promise. Mr. N. thinks the grain is not so heavy this year, by two or three pounds per bushel. Stocklon City Mill, owned by Sperry & Baldwin ; this is a...

The Catawba Grape. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

The Catawba Grape. We trust particular attention will be given to the cultivation of the Catawba Grape, the coming season. We believe it will be found a superior kind for California; and it is to be hoped more care will bo bestowed upon the grape in its culture, than has yet b?en given to it. That the vine will groie any where In California, is admitted ; but that it will succeed and produce a good crop of fine grapes without much cultivation, is another thing. The grnpo requires a good, deep, rich and wellpulverized soil; our hill sides can be made the best vineyards, if tho ground is properly prepared. No vineyard should be planted without iirst thoroughly subsoiling the land. Subsoil our hill sides—plow in the scattering bones and waste manure that lay scattered upon the ranch, and the vineyard that may be established there will support a family in luxury. Who will try the Catawba? Sec the following: Catawba. —Tho Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, in a recent report on the business...

Produce Market. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

Produce Market. MONTHLY CIRCULAR OF GEO. G. POPE AND CO. San Francisco, Dec. 1-t, 1855. The receipts of produce during the past, have been much less than in any previous month since harvest, and although the demand that existed in the first fortnight was very light, yet the past two weeks have been marked by an active inquiry, arising from a demand both for export and also for local and interior wants. Sales were very light until the 15th, since when large parcels of Chili Flour in bond have bcon taken for export, as also, considerable parcels of Domestic, details of which will be noted in further review. The diminished receipts of Grain during the early part of the month might have been attributed to the lessened demand, had it not continued to be the case in the latter part, when an active inquiry prevailed, and we are forced to the conclusion that the greater portion of our crops have already been brought to market. In our last Circular we referred to tho advices of a large defic...

The Great Exhibition of the U. S. Agricultural Society, at Boston. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

The Great Exhibition of the U. S. Agricultural Society, at Boston. The Great Exhibition opened to-day (the 23d Oct.) under the most favorable auspices. The weather was clear, with a cool westerly bretze prevailing, and the sun beamed forth in unwonted splendor, to enliven the scene. The grounds look finely ; around tho entire course were the cattle pens, covered with canvas, which had a very neat effect. In the inclosure are the President's Marquee, the Marshal's Tent, the Reporters' quarters, and the Judges' Stand, all gaily decorated with flags. The entries havo been quite numerous, the stalls are nearly all filled, and the show of stock is superior to any ever made at any previous fair; these have attracted universal admiration and attention. The scene in the race course, is beyond toothing ever before seen. At precisely 10 o'clock the exercises of the day were opened by a brief address from the President, followed by music from the band. The Grand Cavalcade was then formed, comp...

The Right Action. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

The Right Action. We take pleasura in publishing from the San Joaquin Republican the report of the doings of | the Agricultural and Mechanical Association of i the county of San Joaquin. We call the attention of other counties to the value of such action, and we rejoice to see this union of those two great interests—the Agricultural and Mechanical. This is a sure guarantee of success to both. Having met each of the gentlemen, we feel assured their hearts are in the work. It now remains the duty of the citizens of the county to rally and support them.' MEETING OF THE AGRICULTURISTS' AND MECHANICS' ASSOCIATION. The Agriculturists' and Mechanics' Association convened, pursuant to notice, at the City Hall, on the sth Nov. This being the first quarterly meeting of the Society, it was looked upon with considerable interest, as the first great effort to stimulate united action upon the producing interests of this county. The number in attendance was gnitifyingly large, and gave ample proof...

Smut in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

Smut in Wheat. Stockton, 2&1 Nuv., 135 a Mepsrs. Editors : I am glad to see you watching the agricultural interest thus. 1 havo been looking for some time in the Fakmer for some one's experience about smut in wheat; but 1 havo never seen it before the last issue. Now we have several remedies given out by practical men, and very good ones, (one of which is from an acquaintance of mino in the South, and which was published in the Southern Cultivator of Sept., 1853), but probably there arc some of your readers who would like to see a chemical analysis and a theory, —a doctrine of causes of smut, if 1 may so call it. Where is Agricola ? Here is my friend's letter— Messrs. Editors: As thero has been so much said about smut in wheat, and as the time of sowing is near at hand, I thought I would give you my views respecting it. I believe that it is deposited in the grain of the wheat, or the smut grain, and not in the land, as some suppose. I am confident that soaking in blue st...

CAN'T DO WITHOUT A PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

CAN'T DO WITHOUT A PAPER. What, do withour a paper ? no, I've tried it to my sorrow, So to subscribe for one I'll go, Nor wait untU to-morrow. Should lovers drown or hang themselves, Or other foolish caper, 1 never get to hear of it— I do not take a paper. Why. there's my neighbor, Jothara Stouii He always has the news, And, having news to talk about, He never gets the blues. While others yawn in ennui, His mind is light as vapor ; The cause is plain to half an eye— He always takes a paper. While neighbor Stout has all the news, And knows each current price, And always minds his P's and Q's, By taking good advice— I cannot tell the price of calves, Or poultry, coffee, tape, or Any kind of merchandise, Becnuse I take no paper. Though, I have ftudies which require Much time aud mental labor, Yet I can spare a little time, As well as Stout, my neighbor; Though time be precious, I can use A longer midnight taper; And thus take time to read the news — Therefore I'll take the paper.

DON'T BELIEVE HIM. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

DON'T BELIEVE HIM. WALTER. Whkn some one comes with accents smooth and oily, And tells you that a triend you valued highly Has fallen into grievous paths of error, Or done a deed which makes you quail with terror— Unless you know there's truth in what he's saying, 'Twere best to think that some one has been playing On his credulity: it may relieve him To tell the tale to you— but don't bclitvc him. If one should come and whisper that a woman Of good repute has done a deed inhuman, — Been frail and fickle—rocreant to virtue, — E'en though the tale be spicy, 'twill not hurt you Once to deuy yourself the bit of slander With which unto your appetite he'd pander;— If you're a man, you'll try to undeceive him, But if you do not that— still don't believt him. There's many a villian in the world who uses His tongue but to disseminate abuses; Who rends of nothing except thefts and murder?, And crime of which our inmost spirit shudders; Hi* mind'e! mo.t choice, most eloquent production Is som...

Emerson's Maxims of Education. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

Emerson's Maxims of Education. Let it be your grand object to prepare your pupils for the greatest usefulness and enjoyment. Teach for eternity. Teach nothing, but what appears conducive to the usefulness of your pupils, if improved according to its natural tendency and influence. Let every branch receive attention, in proportion to its probable utility. As far as possible, make your pupils perceive and feel the importance of every branch Ihey pursue. Proceed systematically ; and, as far as possible, teach those things first which are first in the order of nature, and which may be understood without an acquaintance with other things to be subse quently acquired. As far as possible teach those things first which are easiest in themselves. In giving instruction, proceed very gradually and by the shortest fcteps, from the more easy to the more difficult. • As far as may be, see that your pupils understand each step before proceeding on to the next. Never teach them directly what they c...

Autumn. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 7 December 1855

Autumn. "Tim hcdcer stopping gaps amid the leaves Which time her lints in every color weaves j The milkmaid posf ing with a timid look, From stone to stone, across the brimming brook; The cotter journeying With the noisy swine Along thf! woodeide where the branches twine, Snaking from mossy oaks the acorns brown, Or from the hedges red haws dashing down." Supper dishes have been cleared away just long enough for me to write a hasty sketch before the going down of the sun, which continues to shine with a lessening ray. It is as combining the decline of the day with that of the year, the period both of beauty and decay, that an evening in autumn becomes so generally the parent of ideas of a solemn and pathetic cast. Not only as in the first of these instances, do we blend the sunset of physical with that of moral being, but a farther source of similitude is unavoidably suggested in the failure and decrepitude of the dying year— a picture faithfully, and in some points of view mournful...

Not that she was uncivil or unsocial' c by any means, for the moment we had taken tin proffered chair she set in with a steady stream < !' talk that was as instructive as it was entertaining, for besides her admirable qualities as a hous< - wife,the lady possessed rare conversational power*-.
