Mining News. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
Mining News. Every paper that comes to us seems to be filled with new discoveries and a richer yield to old diggings; the rivers yield largely, the mountains give forth of their abundance, and the quartz mills are pouring out streams of gold. This is well for the miners; we rejoice at their success, and it is good for the country if we can keep the gold here. The great aim now should be to manufacture and produce all we want, even if we pay a little higher price for home manufactures. Let the miner encourage California Industry, and more comforts will flow back to him for it. We make extracts from the several journals that speak of the new diggings and the success of the miners. SPRINGFIELD, Is a large town, within sight of Shaws Flat; the buildings are in a continuous line between the two towns. The settlement in this place, is not so scattering, and the houses have the appearance of permanent population. There are many substantial buildings for business and some beautiful private ...

Currants. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
Currants. The following excellent article on tlie growing of Currant Trees, we lay before our readers, and we say amen to it, with all our heart. There is no one fruit more nutritious and wholesome in the summer months, none more palatable, and if pains be only taken to give them room and care. California would produce the finest currants in the world : There is no class of fruits so much neglected as the currant, and none possessing so many good qualities and so susceptible of improvement, under good cultivation. Planted in some far off corner, where other fruits would starve and die, it is left to take care of itself, receiving no care in \ the way of manuring and pruning, or mulching | In almost every garden where they are planted, j we find them complete nuisances—hedge-rows of poor weak straggling branches, utter incapable of producing good sized fair fruit. In the production of new varieties, the currant has been sadly neglected, while every year adds to the too already extend...

Literary Department. •'TWICE Married." a story of Connecticut Life, j — 12tno. 204 pages—published by Dix &amp; Edwards. New lork : A lively romance, that has appeared in success ' ive numbers of Putnam's Magazine, and having been quite popular, is now reprinted in book form. The scene is laid in a Connecticut village, land the description of life there is quite lively jand picturesque. The plot is simple, but well | wrought out, and makes one of the most enter- | tabling stories that we have read for a long time. I The author says in his preface, that his ardent i desire was to please the readers of the magazine, i and if the reader can discover a moral ho is woljcome to it, for it was not put in by design. The : story is a plain sketch of rustic Yankee life and j character, and at the conclusion the very rare circumstance occurs, of the hero and heroine being twice married to each other.

A THOUGHT IN NONANTUM VALE, BRIGHTON. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
A THOUGHT IN NONANTUM VALE, BRIGHTON. WM. B. TAPPAN. I WALK among the plants and llowers, — The air is charged with sweets; I live, as this Arabian gale My tainting spirit greets. I go :—my garments benr away The fragrance on them lnid , And with their many-voiced perfumes Tell where to-day I've strayed. And so the soul that seeks delight In interview with God, And hath His garden of chief spice, Myrrh, aloes, cassia, trod, Will find, wherever he mny go, The fragrance with him stay ; And Henven, still lingering on his steps— More odorous than May.
THE QUAKERESS BRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
THE QUAKERESS BRIDE. MRS. E. C. KINNEY. The building was huinblo, yet sacred to one Who heeds the deep worship that utters no tone, Whose presence is not to tlie temple confined, But dwells with tlie contrite and lowly of mind. 'Twas there, all unveiled save by mode-ty, stood The Quakeress bride in her pure satin hood ; Her charms unadorned by the garland or gem, Yet lair as the lily just plucked from its stem, A tear glistened bright in her dark shaded eye, And her ho«om halt uttered a tremulous sigh, As the hand she had pledged was confidingly given, And the low murmured accents recorded in Heaven.
THE KISS OF WEDDED LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
THE KISS OF WEDDED LOVE. Give me of wedded lore the holy kiss, Bel to wed with rapture and received with bliss, Where soul embracing soul in union sweet, Not only lips, but hearts together meet. Give me the kiss that asks no fancied aid, From warbling nightingale in myrtle shade, From flow'r enamelled mend or secret bow'r, Beneath the moon's pale beam nt midnight hour. Be mine the kiss that's given without fear, That stains not honor, and that wakes no tear, The kiss whose raptures gold can never buy, The kiss that's ne'er remembered with a sigh. Give me tlie kiss of innocence alone, The huiloved kin*, that I can cill my own.
A Way to Create Happiness. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
A Way to Create Happiness. The following beautiful incident we publish for tlie benefit of those who desire to make others happy. The hero of the story must have been one of the lucky editors —a big salary, or a goodly list of prompt-paving subscribers —and with these means he could act out his whole heart. If every reader of this story would only do his duty in thus giving the means whereby editors and pub Ushers could testify their affection for their wives, there would not be quite so many old bachelors — nor would there be so many divorces. Reader, just think how much good you can do; perhaps you may witness such a scene. Will you try ?— for we endorse all the writer has so beautifully depicted of Happiness: a pleasant surprise. One evening hist month, a prominent editor took his friends and his household by surprise in a most novel and charming fashion. His wife—a most charming woman by the way —had a birthday just'in tho pleasant season of fruit, and as birthdays only come onc...
The Mother. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
The Mother. The mother's influence is almighty for good or evil. Upon the mother depends in a great measure the future character of the child. As cay in the hands of the potter, so is the mind of the child in the power of the mother. We publish the following sketch as most truthfully delineative of the action of some who bear that relation, without understanding the responsibility : PATIENCE. BY MIST. "Mother!" No answer. " Mother ! I say, mother ! " "W T hat now, you little troublesome thing?" asked Mrs. Moore, as she entered from the kitchen, looking very stern and impatient. «» Mother, is it school-time ?" " Yes, it is, and after, too ; and I am glad of it. I believe you children were never so troublesome before in the world. Go along to school as fast as you can go; I shall be rid of you until dinner time, at any rate." So Charley went, feeling very cross and unpleasant, and ready to dispute and quarrel with the first child he" met. The influence of his mother's fretfulness was ...
Search for Wives. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
Search for Wives. Where do men usually discover the women who afterwards become their wives, is a question we have frequently heard discussed, and the custom has invariably become of value to young lady readers. Chance has much to do in the affair ; but then there are important governing circumstances. It is certain that few men make a selection from hall rooms, or any other places of publia gaiety ; and nearly as few are influenced by what may be called showing off in the streets, or by any allurements of dress. Our conviction is. that ninety-nine hundredths of all the finery with which women decorate or load their persons, go for nothing as far as husband catching is concerned. Where, and how, then, do men find their wives? in the quiet homes of their parents or guardians—at the fireside, where the domestic graces and feelings are alone demonstrated. These are the charms which most attract the high as well as the humble. Against these, all the finery and airs in the world sink int...
Embroidery. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 14 December 1855
Embroidery. DIRECTIONS FOR WORKING. There is no work which allows of more care, judgment and taste than embroidery ; and no more pleasing, either to the fair worker or to the favored one for whom it was worked. It is adapted to all kinds of articles, whether for wear or ornament; and there is no work where better materials are required, neither is there any where greater care and judgment in the choice of materials and colors can be shown. If the work is on white muslin, always choose soft embroidery cotton, coarse or fine, according to the boldness or delicacy of the work : Dick's embroidery cotton is the best, in our opinion, amongst all the makers. Let all your work be very regular and even ; and never, or in very few instances, draw it tight, but let it spread out to fill up between the threads, so that the*muslin may not be seen between the stitches. If on satin, velvet, or leather, the same directions must be followed ; but in the latter the greatest care must be taken that th...
