LADY JANE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 25 January 1855

LADY JANE. | The following beautiful verses, on a favorite Horse, were written by the Into Mrs. Frances S. Osgood:) O, saw VA e'er crenture so queenly, so fine, A« this dainty, lerinl darling of mine! With a tOM of her mane, that is glossy as jet, With a dance and a prance, and a frolic curvet, SIM i- off! She is stepping superbly away I Her dark, speaking rye full of pride and of play. O, she spurns the dull earth with a graceful disdain, My fearless, my peerless, my loved Lady Jane I Her silken ears lifted when danger is nigh, How kindles tho light in her resolute eye I How stately she paces, as if to the sound Of a proud, martial melody playing around. Now pauses at once,'mid a light caracole, • To turn her mild g'ance on me beaming with soul; Now fleet as a fairy, she speeds o'er the plain, My darling, my treasure, my own Lady Jane I Give her rein I let her go! Like a shnlt from the bow, Like a bird on the wing, she is speeding, 1 trow— Light of heart, lithe of limb, with a spir...

Cure for the Toothache. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 25 January 1855

Cure for the Toothache. Beauty has charms. So it has, almost equal to music. It may soothe a savage breast. It did soothe, or charm, a German music teacher one day last "week. He was charmed with the beauty of a lady, blight as a star, lovely as those who dwell beyond, or in the shining orbs. He saw and she conquered. He saw her in the street, and followed. Other poodles have done the same. She entered a store —so did he. Not because he wanted to buy goods, but he thought an opporturnity might occur for him to speak music to her. or hear the music of her speech, Oh, what a voice!— more sweet than his own fiddle; and its tones vibrated to the very bottom of his lager beer barrel. And her smile —it struck him to the heart, for be thought she smiled upon him. Perhaps she did. We smiled at a bigger fool in the circus the oilier night. She looked at silks—i.c tried to suit himself with a new pair of gloves. Both were haul to suit, and time sped. At length she left, and took a stage for h...

PROSPERITY. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

PROSPERITY. Would the farmers of our State desire prosperity? then let them take the proper measures to secure it. When questions of State are agitated, politicians are engaged heart and soul to secure success and triumph to their cause —and shall the cultivator of the soil esteem his profession less noble than politics?—and yet, compare the interest and enfhusiasm manifested at political meetings,in contrast to that of the agriculturists'! We rejoice however to note the right feeling in some portions of our land, and when such feelings, are awakened, prosperity will follow. In the great State of Ohio, at their late State Agricultural Meeting, sixty counties were fully represented by delegates, nearly 300 being present. This was a large number of delegates, and the whole proceedings of the Convention occupy four and a half columns of the Ohio Farmer, one of the largest sheets published in the West. The meeting was one of great interest. Some of the most prominent and distinguished m...

MORALS IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

MORALS IN AGRICULTURE. Messrs. Editors : Having published from two or three sources on the above topic, yon will, perhaps, allow another to offer a few suggestions. I am led to these by recent transactions. Not long since, at an auction sale in this to*vn. Peach trees were under the hammer, and the inquiry was made by numbers of honest men, who wished trees for their own use—" What variety are they ?" The honest and knowing proprietor of the nursery replied, ' Melacatoon ; a very fine variety" —and the trees sold like '"hot corn." for the auctioneer had referred, for the wisdom and integrity of the proprietor, to a well known citizen of our town. Now, did, or did not. that pro prietor know that " Melacatoon " (Mclocoton) is no more the name of a variety of the peach, than evergreen is the name of a variety of tree ? Did he not know that it was the name of a whole class of varieties ? Again, it is not a thousand years since a similar farce was enacted with cherry trees. In reph to an...

SPECIMEN PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

SPECIMEN PLANTS. Humboldt, Jan. 15, 1835. Colonel, Warren: Thinking yon might feel pleased at receiving a few specimens of our growth, I yesterday went out with a pick and grubbed up some. There are at least one hundred different varieties of fruit-bearing bushes, shrubs and trees, in Humboldt county, which I have never seen described elsewhere. Many of which I never heard of before. I send a bundle to you by Mr. E. L. James, the gentlemanly and accommodating purser of the steamer Humboldt. No. 1. Is a monster Current, larger than the largest cranberry, and of exquisite flavor. No. 2, Currents and Gooseberry. No. 3. Red and White Salmon Berry, a gigantic species of raspberry. No. 4. Two bushes, called by some spice, others olive, and others laurel. It is an evergreen, sugar leaved in shape, and bears a fruit resembling an olive, which the Indians use as an article of flood, after roasting, and is said to be very nutritious. The leaves must be poisonous. If you will but squeeze one b...

CALIFORNIA PEA-NUTS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

CALIFORNIA PEA-NUTS. Sacbambnto, Jhii 92, 1855. Messrs. Editors : 1 have now before me yours of the 19th inst., and notice its contents. I have this day left with Messrs. Baker & Hamilton a sack of pea-nuts, to. be forwarded to you. I planted quarter of an acre, and gathered about 20 bushels, or 800 lbs. I should here remark that I planted the African pea, very old. and did not get more than half a stand. The trial satis- fies me that our sagdy soil will produce 100 bushels per acre, or 3,000 lbs.—at the lowest price of African nuts now in market, say 25 cts., will yield $750 per acre. The time to plant is about the Ist to 10th April. In ground well broke and levelled, lay off with a drill rows 4 feet apart and drop one kernel in the drill about 24 inches apart, and cover about 3 inches deep. When the vines begin to run, say G to 8 inches, and blossom, then commence to cover about 2 inches with the soil from between the rows, always leaving the end of the vine free. The ...

FARMING IN SIERRA COUNTY. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

FARMING IN SIERRA COUNTY. Oak Ranch, Sierra county, Jan. 20, 18S5. Messrs. Editors : I receive about len California papers weekly, and being an agriculturist in a small way, the Farmer is of more value to me than all the others. Every person in this State engaged in that pursuit, or its kindreds, such as are treated of in the Farmer, should take that paper. They would gain dollars, ten times its cost. Not only does it contain a mass of most valuable practical information, but being wiitten in a pleasing and graceful style, it entertains while it instructs. Mine is a little barren patch up in the most rugged and apparently worthless of the Sierras, in latitude 41" N. and an altitude of about 5,000 feet above the level of the sea. I raise nearly all kinds of garden vegetables, and about twenty-five tons of potatoes, on six acres of ground, and sell potatoes for 12 cents per pound, cabbage 20 cents per pound, turnips 12 cents, beets 1(3 cents. I planted about three-fourths of an acre o...

OLD COLONY SWEET CORN. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

OLD COLONY SWEET CORN. The editor of the Granite Fanner, who has given this superior corn a fair trial, pronounces in its favor as follows: We have cultivated, the present season, three varieties, Stowell's Evergreen, Darling's Extra Early, and Old Colony. Of Darling's Extra Early we would say that it is a good variety, but not extra early at all. at least with us. Planted at the same time with the others, it is in eating at the same time. To be sure, we have this variety on the table first, because we planted it in oui garden two weeks perhaps before the other kind. With us it it simply a good corn. We planted Stowell's. Evergreen Sweet as much for curiosity as anything. We wished to see if it would keep green forever. We had formed the opinion that it was not a first rate table corn, that it was large and coarse, with not a delicate flavor. But in this we have been happily disappointed. It is a prime table corn; its appearance is handsome, the ears are large with full deep grains....

California Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

California Agriculture. We copy the following from our cotemporary the Evening Journal, and we rejoice in the hope that our daily and weekly journals throughout the State arc beginning to look at the Agricultural interest in its true light. We hail this as a new and glorious era, when our local journals shall be willing to accord to this branch of our nation's wealth its high position. We have read with pleasure the leader of the Evening Journal, and are familiar with the truths thus expressed, for they are but the condensed arguments we have been using the entire year; and our readers will readily recognize the various themes touched upon. There is no one branch of agriculture or its kindred subjects, in this well condensed leader of our cotemporary, that we have not been urging upon our readers the past year, and this fact makes it the moro interesting to us, for we feel assured and encouraged to labor on when we see a new and increasing interest, and of a character that promises ...

Holcus Saccharatus, [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

Holcus Saccharatus, {Sorglio sucri.) * BY LOUIS VILMORIN, MEMBER OF THE CENTRAL S. OF AO. An article contained in the " Moniteur Universel," of January 21st. by noticing in a very inaccurate manner a presentation that I had made to the Central Society of Agriculture, during its session of the 18th of January, has prematurely attracted public attention to this plant by attributing to it—through an error in figures—qualities which, did it really possess, would sufficiently explain the rapidity with which this article has been circulated amongst a large number of journals. It is in order that these false notions may not be further extended, that I am obliged to return at once to this plant, of which I had intended not to make any fresh, public mention until I should have more fully studied it. The plant which I presented to the Agricultural Society, in the name of one of our correspondents —M. llantonnet, of Hyeres,—is called Holcus saccharatus, Sorgho sucre, It is known of old and in ...
