Practical Suggestions on Wheat Raising. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

Practical Suggestions on Wheat Raising. Messrs. Editors : As it is very important to all the citizens of California that the next crop of wheat should be free from the complaints of all farmers' the past season, I feel it a duty to give some instructions, drawn from long experience in wheat growing sections. The first requisite is thorough plowing, as an evenly crop rannnt tifc mv —'-*- from unequally deep plowing for the grain on the shallow stirred soil will ripen sooner than on the deep. The next in importance is good seed, and perfectly clean ; if there should be the least smut in the seed it should be carefully washed, thus: take a large and a smaller vessel, fill the smaller one with a strong brine, so that when the wheat is poured slowly into it, all imperfect grains, whether of wheat or oats or smut, will flow over into the larger vessel; when filled, drain off the brine and empty the vessel, and return the brine through a sieve to the former vessel, and repeat the process. ...

How Much Seed to the Acre? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

How Much Seed to the Acre? The following is about the usual amount of seed sown to the acre in the Middle and Western States. We should remark, that about twentyfive per cent, less would be the average of the want of California culture. This would depend upon the quality of the soil and tho cultivation adopted, as this is for broadcast sowing : Wheat 14® 2 bushels.

Experiment in Sowing Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

Experiment in Sowing Wheat. A correspondent of the Southern Planter, who seems to kave kept "well up" in his classical studies, gives the subjoined as the result of following the advice of an agricultural writer, who flourished as long ago as the reign of Augustus. We would not advise our friends to try the experiment upon a very large scale: I sowed one hundred bushels of wheat last October, every grain of whi< h was put into boiling hot water; it is at this time the best looking wheat in this part of the country. I tried fifty bushels of very smutty wheat in the fall of 1853, and not one head of smutty wheat, nor fly. nor anything to injure the crop but rust. I got this hint from Virgil, so that it is not exactly new, and should it turn out well this harvest. I will give you a full account. lam afraid to holler on one experiment; but knowing that smut proceeds from the puncture of a bug that deposits an egg which turns to a maggot, and then to a fly, I showed the worm i...

"Fashion," [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

"Fashion," HER PEDIGRF.E. CHARACTERISTICS AND PER- FOHMANCES. This distinguished mate was bred by the late William Gibbons, Esq.. of Madison, Morris county. N. J.. where she was foaled on the 2Glh of April. 1837. She was got by imported Trustee, out of Ronnets-o'-Blue by Sir Charles, and she out of Reality. Reality was got by Sir Archy. and her pedigree extends the imported horses Medley. Centinel. Janus. Monkey, Silver Eye and Spanker, to an imported Spanish mare. Trustee, the sire of Fashion, was a distinguished race horse in England ; he was foaled in 1829. and was got by Catton, out of Emma by Whisker, and combines the blood of Hermes, Pipator and Sir Peter, on his dam's side, with that of Penelope by Tnunpator and Prunella by Highflyer on the side of his sire. It would be difficult, perhaps impossible, to compile from the Stud Rook a richer pedigree than Fashion's. She is descended from the most eminently distinguished racing families on the side of both sire and dam, that have...

California Makes her Mark. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

California Makes her Mark. Shortly after the State Exhibition, we selected some of the fine specimens that had won so much notice at the Hall, and had them carefully prepared and arranged for exhibition at Boston, and other places, with a view of giving our friends Fast ocular demonstration of what California could do, on the Pacific shores, in the way of Agriculture and Home Industry. By the liberality of the house of Wells, Fargo & K!o. they were transmitted to the office in Boston, free of charge, and exhibited there by the junior editor of this paper. The interest they excited and the astonishment they have produced, will best be explained by the editor of the Boston Traveller, who speaks in the following glowing terms: California Agricultural Pm»fM 'c *•>.—We took occasion a few days since, to refer to Rome remarkable products of the soil of California. We have since had the pleasure of examining numerous samples of these products, brought to this city by...

Gambling. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

Gambling. That unfortunate young man A. C. Haskell, who has recently fallen from the high position of a confidential clerk of a large mercantile house, is now a prisoner at the station-house, in San Francisco. He who was once trusted with untold thousands is now branded with crime, and is within the barred cells of a prison, among felons. What a lesson for the young men of California. How terrible the fall—how gloomy the contrast— and how inipoitant it is to hold up this awful example as a warning to others. What has wrought this change 7 What were the temptations? And who the tempters? We are told that Haskell lost largely at the gaming table, and that lured on by the hope of winning back what was lost, he plunged deeper and deeper into debt, until he was tempted to commit the crime of robbery, hoping by these, ample means, perhaps by some lucky turn of the die, to win all back and be saved! With this fallacious hope he staked all, and lost. It is a terrible calamity to know and re...

San Francisco Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

San Francisco Bulletin. We do not know but we should come up before the "King" with an apology, for not extending the usual courtesies ot the press, when that spirited journal made its first appearance; but as it is so very difficult to keep posted up about all the new papers that make their appearance, and as we were so much engaged with our duties abroad, we know we shall be kindly forgiven — and write this paragraph to say to our cotemporary that we shall be happy to exchange. Had we not found very much to please ourselves, had we never have seen the Bulletin, we should now be anxious to see it, believing there was good in it, because so many were finding fault about matters of which they were not perfect themselves. We like the Bulletin—there is very much to approve, ami the good is what we seek. Whyneed the Press spend so much time, brains and money, in finding fault with the Bulletin ? Is it because the Bulletin is finding favor with the community? And some papers, wanting to ...

Festivals of this Week. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

Festivals of this Week. First and we believe the one that will leave the best impression, is the festival season of the Female Seminary of Miss Atkins, at Benicia, —a seminary for young ladies, one of the most popular as well as the happiest and most successful in the State—on Thursday and Friday. The hours of the days were to be devoted to the reci- 4tations, and examinations of the pupils. Thursday evening the Musical Festival was to be held at the Town Hall (late capitol), the design and object of which was to provide apparatus for the Institution. This musical banquet was to be presented entirely by the teachers and pupils. From the interest everywhere felt for this occasion, a very rich repast was anticipated. As we have a parent's interest in this institution and intended to be present, we shall speak fully in our next number. The Great New England Festival in honor of the Landing of the Pilgrims, will be celebrated on the 22d, at San Francisco, by a dinner and ball, by the Ne...

The Carob Tree, or St John's Bread. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

The Carob Tree, or St John's Bread. We publish the following account of this singular tree, having received and distributed the seeds from the Patent Office: Of all the seeds imported by this office for the purpose of distribution, there is not one more interesting or more valuable than those of the Caiob tree. The pods, when matured, contain a few drops of a substance resembling honey. The tree is unquestionably of Kastcrn origin, and it is supposed to be identical with that upon which St. John fed while in the wilderness. The seeds were procured for the office from the Alicante, in Spain. In Murcia. Valentia. Catalonia, and other provinces in that country, it abounds, and frequently forms, with the olive and other valuable trees, large forests. It was without doubt introduced there by the Moors, who knew its nutritive qualities as a food for their horses, mules and cattle. They probably brought it from Palestine and Egypt, whence it appears to have originated. In these Spanish pro...

Death of Professor Jas. W. F. Johnston. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

Death of Professor Jas. W. F. Johnston. The steamer lately brought the sad news of the death of this distinguished friend and promoter of agricultural improvement. No other man has labored more diligently or more successfully to disseminate correct information among the farmers of Great Britain; and his volumnious works, owing to a cheaper press—have been read quite as much in this country as there. His writings were chiefly devoted to collecting and arranging the developments of scientific agriculture, and no individual has done more to substitute a system of enlightened cultivation for one of mere routine farming. His ' Notes on America," were valuable, though in some instances, too careless in the collection and comparison of facts, and like most similar works, tinged too strongly with English prejudices. He did not, however, confine himself wholly to Agriculture proper. His last work. "Chemistry of Common Life," (recently published here by the Appletons.) is a most valuable cont...
