U. S. Land Commision. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

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

Hedge Plants. One of the finest adornments to a garden is the Hodge that divides it from the highway and the buildings that surround it. A Hedge is not only ornamental and useful for the outside of the ground, as a protection, but it is necessary as a dividing line between the various departments of a garden. The Flower and Fruit Gardens should always be separated by a Hedge. It would be much better in a large establishment to divide each class by hedges. The Fruit Orchard, the Vineyard, the Flower Garden and the Vegetable Ground should each be separated by an ornamental Hedge. The Hedge should also separate the grounds from all the several buildings. In California a Hedge can be made in a very brief time; two, three, or (our years are sufficient to establish a beautiful and strong Hedge, according to the nature of protection wanted. There are several species of Hedge plants admirably calculated for these purposes, that are indigenous to California, and so well adapted for Hedges th...

The Fire Blight—Cracking of Pears. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

The Fire Blight—Cracking of Pears. J. A. ERNST, CINCINNATI, O. I haTe been a learner for the last fifty years, a large portion of it devoted to Horticulture. My zeal has prompted me to close scrutiny of the various phenomena that often cross the horticulturist's path, the solution of which has not always been as satisfactory as is desirable. This is especially the case with the Pear, the trees and the maladies to which it is subject. The cause of the fire-blight, so called, I think I fully understand, experience confirming the correctness of the views presented by me on former occasions in the pages of the Horticulturist. This summer has afforded another opportunity for testing them. Those who have paid attention to the matter will probably remember that I suggested, that with the return of a wet summer, we should have the fire blight, which seemed to have disappeared for several years. Time has proved so, most fatally so in some situations destroying very large trees. I have had mu...

The Winter Rest of Trees. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

The Winter Rest of Trees. Trees have not an absolute and entire rest during winter. The sap circulates more or less from root to branch during the mild days of the season. If the trunk of a tree is measured in Autumn, and again in the spring, it will be found tliat it has enlarged itself. And yet, relatively to their condition in summer, trees in winter are at rest. They close their annual labors in autumn, some of them early in the season, others later. Some of them show that they are tired of making leaves and branches and frujt, even before frost comes. The maple, bass, birch and hickory indicate it. about the middle of September, b; r holding out flags of yellow and red. Others, as the elm and ash, give up work at the first touch of frost. But with what splendid pomp do these and all the other trees combine to clothe the hills before they lay oft" their summer drapery and go to rest! This, their last, is the most brilliant performance of the year. It would seem that they did thi...

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

Flowers. There exists in every mind an mate faculty for the appreciation of the beautiful, and happily for its gratification there is an adaptation in the material world to this as well as every other principle of our nature, and where the mind of man has not been debased by "earth's too sordid touch," he is not slow in perceiving the dwelling places of the spirit of beauty, as well as to seek what may strictly be termed useful in this varied and changeful world of ours. Among all this variety which inspires us with the love of the pure and beautiful, the flowers hold no mean rank. This rank they have held from the most remote ages, and no nation, however rude or uncultivated, has withheld from them their most enthusiastic admiration. Notwithstanding, they have from days of yore, been the poet's theme, and have often found a pluce in the most prosaic productions of men of science, yet now they again return to us in all their freshness and beauty, claiming a slight tribute of remembr...

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

Tremont House. Come, dine with me at the Tremont House ! What associations crowd upon the mind of an old Boston ian "at a name like this. Tremont House ! That princely head quarters of all good living, that good old familiar home for so many thousands of travelers, east, west, north and south. For many years it was unnecessary to ask any respectable traveler who was about to visit Boston, where he was to be found; it would only require you to call at the Treniont House! The mountain hunters, who would carry the fat venison and bear meat to Boston, did not stop to inquire who wanted the best; they drove to the Tremont House. The fishermen who were so lucky as to catch the h first salmon," he would hurry to the Tremont House. It mattered not what delicacy was brought to Boston, fish, flesh, or fowl, I'm going to the Tremont House, they always buy the first and best. Was a splendid dinner to be got up? That dinner was at the Tremot House, Bostonians, remember this, and it won a name an...

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

The Gentleman's Room.—Far beyond draw-ing-room, and important above almost every other arrangement in your domestic establishment, is the consecration of one room to the especial use of the master of the house, should his pursuits be such as to render occasional solitude and quiet needful, or merely pleasurable to him. A sound and lovely policy is that which secures to a husband, in his own family, certain privileges and comforts that he can never find elsewhere, and that are calculated to counterbalance the weight of the many other attractions which his immedi ate circle cannot offer. A room to himself—a home within his home— is such a privilege, and few sacrifices are too great, if they may procure it for him; few advantages are great enough, if they must take it from him ; it will keep him from clubs and curd parties abroad, or from being •'always about" at home; it will prove a sanctuary from the numerous petty domestic troubles and annoyances that, as few men can comprehend for...

How the Apes Catch Crabs in Java. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 21 December 1855

How the Apes Catch Crabs in Java. After walking close up to the old campong, they were on the point of turning hack, when a young fellow emerged from the thicket, and said a few words to the mnndoor. The latter turned, with a laugh, to Frank, and asked him if he had ever seen the apes catch crabs. Frank replied in the negative, and the mandoor, taking his hand, led him gently and cautiously through the deserted village, to a spot which the young fellow had pointed out, and where the old formerly planted hedges, rendered it an easy task for them to approach unobserved. At length they reached the boundary of the ormer settlement—a dry sandy soil and strip of beach, where all vegetation ceased, and only a single tall pandanus tree, whose roots were thickly interlaced with creeping plants, formed, as it were,the advanced post of the vegetable kingdom. Behind this they crawled along, and, cautiously raising their heads, they saw several apes, at a distance of two or three hundred paces, ...
