UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 September 1860
RED ASTRACHAN . —A fruit of extraordinary beauty , first imported into England with tho White Astrachan , from Sweden , in 1816 . It bears abundantly with us , and its singular richness of color is heightened b y an exquisite bloom ou the surface of the fruit , like that of a plum . It is one of the handsomest dessert fruits , and its quality is good , but if not taken from the tree as soon as ripe , it is liable to become meally . Ripens from the last of July to the middle of August . Fruit pretty large , rather above the middle size , and very smooth and fair , roundish , a little narrowed towards the eye . Skin almost entirely covered with deep crimson , with sometimes a little greenish yellow in the shade , and oscasionaHy a little russet near the stalk , and covered with a pale white bloom . Stalk rather short and deeply inserted . Calyx set in a slight basin , which is sometimes a little irregular . Flesh quite white , crisp , moderately juicy , with an agreeable , rich , acid...

Premium Corn . In company with Prof . Turner we visited the farm ot Mr . Litton , a mile south of tho Fair grounds , st Jacksonville , to examine the fields of corn , entered for the premium for the best five acres of corn . Mr . L . has two pieces , ono of which he intends shall take the first , aud the other the second premiums , thus by a coup d etat , he intends to carry the whole thing Looking at theimmense growth of the stalk , the myriads of huge cars , it looks as though he would carry all before him . The rows are about three feet wide , and in hills half that distance , each hill with two to three stalks , aud each stalk contain ing two to three ears , seldom one each . We have never seen a large field like this such a perfect cane brake—such an immense crop . We will make no attempt at guessing , as it K to be accurately measured .

A Few Hours in Sopi . il Chat with Prof . J . b \ Turner at his Home . All know Prof . Turner , either personally or by reputation . By some he is considered too progressive , by others impracticable , and by very many of his friends who know him best , as a truly scientific and practical man .

Wc have for a long tiuie been anxious to make him a visit , and not until to-day ( 21 st ( has that wish been gratified . 11 IS HOME GROCDS Contain sixteen acres adjoining the Deaf and Dumb Asyluni , in the city of Jacksonville .
