Commerce and its Progress , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Commerce and its Progress , The commerce of the United States now exceeds that of any other country in the world . It was surpassed by that of Great Britain until within the past year . It now reaches the enormous amount of nearly six million tons of shipping and probably measures the general development of our country as correctly as any other element of its growth . We have no data by which to determine the character or magnitude of the am ient traffic by sea . Tyre and Sdon and Tharshish contributed to the magnificent wants of Solomon .- The two former , famous cities of Phoenicia , scoured the Mediterranean with their ships , founded Carthage , and adventuring through the Pillars of Hercules , ( straits of Gibralter . ) ii . to the broad Atlantic , are known to have reached Britain and Ireland ; the legends of which latter country assert for its people a Phoenician origin . The Phoenicians were not merely roving adventurers ; they brought tin from Cornwall , as a trophy of their...

Farmer Politicians . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Farmer Politicians . Every man in this country shonld , to some extent , be a politician , so far as to make himself acquainted with the principles of government , and the distinctive policy of parties . As a part of the government , he is bound to inform himself in regard to public measures , because , if he does not , he is liable to vote and act ignorantly , and , instead of benefiting the country in which all his hopes are interested , he may , to the extent of his influence and power , act to its injury . The position of men here , in regard to the welfare of the country , now and hereafter , can hardly be too highly estimated . What we > wish to say in this connection is , that so far as the happiness or prosperity of a farmer is concerned , he adds little to either by becoming a mere politician . Men of high aspirations are generally desirous to have in their employ and under their influence , drill corporals and sergeants , scattered over the country , whose ambit...

Shade Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Shade Trees . It is too . late to plant out shade trees the present spring ; but a few remarks on the subject may not be out of place . Our towns in Illinois , in nine cases out of ten , are located in prairies . Usually , the men engaged in building up new towns have little time to make other than necessary improvements ; and hence it is that many of them , for years , have no trees to break the heavy winds that sweep over them or to furnish the refreshing shade so grateful to man and beast . Nothing adds more to the appearance of a town than fine healthy trees , lining the streets and shading the sidewalks , especially in those portions of such towns as are at a distance from the bustle of bu siness , occupied for residences , whether of the rich or poor , the gorgeous mansion or the unpretending cottage . Shade trees planted out with judgment , contribute too , to the con veuieuce , comfort and health of those who can enjoy their refreshing shade On this subject we have noticed ,...

Orchards—Peddling Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Orchards—Peddling Trees . The reputed agents of eastern nurseries are already passing through Illinois , soliciting orders for eastern trees . We again caution the farmers of this State against purchasing eastern nursery trees . They are not as large nor as thrifty trees-as those grown in Illinois nurseries ; nor are they of any better varieties . {¦ ¦ All the valuable varieties of apple tree 3 worth cultivating in Illinois , can be found in onr nurseries , and these nurseries are under the control of men who have quite as much regard for their reputation as any eastern nurserymen ;* and . besides , what security have our people tharthe trees sold by these reputed agents are the trees represented ? These men are peddling clocks one month—tin ware another - essences the third , perhaps . If any man has a desire to sec eastern trees , and how they stand this climate , he can gratify himself by traveling up and down our rail roads , where he will see thousands of them yet , heeled in t...

The Farmer ' s Home . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

The Farmer s Home . The following article is taken from the Country Gentleman : A greatdeal has been said about the farmer s home ; as to what in many cases it is , and what in all cases it should be . And much has been said eminently to the purpose , though not all . For example : when the attention has been called solely to the farmer s physical comfort ; when he has been exhorted to build a more elegant house . finer barns and fences and the like , the advice has been well-meant and perhaps judicious , but something more and better than this should have been said . The first step towards improving the farmer s home , should be taken in the work of self-culture . At least this culture should go hand-in-hand with all external improve ments . In most cases—not all—if his home looks badly , it is simply because he chooses to have it look so : it is the true expression of his character and tastes . Those unhinged gates and doors and shutters point to an unhinged owner . That mossy roo...

Floral Exhibition . ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Floral Exhibition . ! Our readers will indulge us in a short article of local interest . Iu the month of June every year for the last six years , we have had a floral exhibition in our city . The occasion was interesting on many accounts ; the beautiful display of flowers , their tasteful arrangement , and the general attendance of all classes of our citizens . It has become an Institution of our city , which ought not to be dispensed with without ample cause ; We give it as our opinion that more attention has been paid to Florticulture in our city than in any other in Illinois . We have a great and select variety of roses and other flowering shrubs , and Flowering Her . baceous Perennials ; annual flowering plants in great variety , are also cultivated . When the season was favorable , the amount of flower offerings at the Floral Festival , almost exceeded belief ; and when these were arranged in the ample rooms of the State House and the Metropolitan Hal ^ ithey seemed scarcely to...

Millet . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Millet . Millet makes excellent fodder . The seed is a great favorite of birds and poultry . It will produce from four to six tons of fodder per acre , and stock are more fond of it than hay . As high as 40 bushels of the seed have been raised to the acre . If for fodder , 16 to 20 quarts of seed should be sown . It may be sown from May till the middle of July . There is now ., and is likely to be , a great demand for the seed . Hence , probably , it wonld be most profitable at present to rake the crop for seed . Several Singamon farmers will sow a few acres . of Millet the present spring . We anticipate that the culture will ha extended .

Plows and Plowlne . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Plows and Plowlne . We find a good article on these subjects in the Valley Farmer , which we marked for our last number . It may , however , be of some service , though most of the spring plowing is now done . The kind of plow to be used to the best advantage for the farmer , should be governed by the depth and character of the soil to be plowed . Deep soils that have been subjected to the skinning system , that is , cultivated in the same crops for a long series of years without manure , and never plowed more than three or four inches deep , if either artificially drained or naturally dry and well plowed with the double or trench plow , may be rendered almost as fertile as when first brought into cultivation . The Trench Plow , or as it is sometimes called , the Double Michigan Plow , has two mould-boards on the same beam ; the foremost one removes the surface or sod to the depth ol three or four inches , and throws it into the previous furrow . The large , or hindermost one follow...

From an English Paper . Extinct Reptiles . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

From an English Paper . Extinct Reptiles . Among the achievements of , science there is no one thing which more deservedly excites our admiration than the restoration of extinct animals . Various writers , who may be said to have discovered the science of geology , had shown that the strata of the earth were laid on one upon another in a certain regular succession , and that each class rock , to use the geological phrase , had its own peculiar suit of exuviee ; but this had not supplied us with the true key with which we unlocked the cabinet of Nature and called from her secret treasury those strange cr ? atures which were produced during the earth s childhood . . Cuvier , however , has supplied what was wanting in this respect , and , by a rigid application of comparative anatomy , has enabled us to perfect our natural history by introducing scores of animals of whose existence our fathers knew nothing . The construction of an animal , however , when only a small portion of the ske...

A RHAPSOM ON GABDEN SEEDS BV H . W . BEECREB . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

A RHAPSOM ON GABDEN SEEDS BV H . W . BEECREB . There is something in the very sight of a genuine seed store that does us good . Even when we lived in the West , and went to the country store , where the annual box of seed from the Union Shaker Village , or the later rival box from Landreth , was displayed , we felt a relaxation , and smelt garden long before it was time to have one . True , a seed is a seed . But it is a good deal more than a seed . It has a history , and it is ready for another history . A whole summer is wrapped np in that pea . A whole summer wrought to form that bean . A whole summer spent its time about that ear of corn . It came forth small as a needle . It stood tremulous and yellow for weeks , it waxed apace in June , it rustled in Jnly , it stood up the noblest of all the grasses in August , with a many fringed band of flowers on its lap , and with a little baby ear at its breast , with silken hair hanging down uncombed yet untangled , and spotted and powde...

Cultivation of Cora . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Cultivation of Cora . We copy the following paragraphs from the May number of the Valley Farmer : It has been clearly established by careful experiments that corn properly planted in drills will yield a larger crop than when planted in hills or check rows . When drilled with a suitable machine , the stalks stand at a uniform distance apart , aud so nearly in a line that the plow or cultivator may run so near them as to cut up most of the weeds without the necessity of turning upon them two inches of earth . Some of the largest premium crops now on record , were produced by level culture . If the first plowing is done with the bar next to the corn , throwing the furrow from the hills , and the earth returned with the next plowing , the cultivator should be used for all subsequent working . This leaves a level mellow bed for the thousands of minute roots which fill the entire space between the rows , and are in fact , the mouths through which alone the plants are fed . By keeping the ...

The Sleep of Plants . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

The Sleep of Plants . The way in which sleep is shown in the vegetable kingdom , is infinitely more variable than among animals . Man throws himself prostrate ; some kind of monkeys lie down oxi their sides ; the camel places its head between the fore legs ; and birds roost their heads beneath the wing . Beyond these , there are few remarkable differences . But in plants there is no end to the curious and beautiful diversity which lewards the seeker after Nature s mysteries . Some plants droop their leaves at nijrht , the first part becoming flaccid and pendulous . Others , of the k nfd called compound , as clover and vetches , close their leaflets together in pairs , and occasionally the whole leaf droops at the the fame time . The three leaflets of clover bring their faces to the outside , and so forms a little triangular pyramid , whose apex is the point of union between the leaflets and their stalks . Lupines , which have leaves resembling a seven-fingered hand without a palm , ...

SUesian Merino Sheep . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

SUesian Merino Sheep . The origin of these sheep is this—Ferdinand Fischer , of Silesia , visited Spain in 1811 and selected from the Infantado and Negretti flock , one hundred ewes and four bucks , and paid a very high price for tbein , as he would have none but the very best , and from that time to this fa period of forty four years , ) they have been bred with the greatest care and kept entirely pure , never have been crossed or mixed with any other blood . lu 18 ? 0 , Mr . Ferdiuand Fisher ( who still lives ) sold ont his farms and flocks to his son , who pursues the same course as his father , keeps the same register and numbers , aud finds ready sale for all bis surplus sbpep , lu fact he does not raise half enough to supply the demand . He often lias sheep engaged one , two aud three years in advance .
