Grapes Ripening Earlier than Formerly. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 4 January 1855
Grapes Ripening Earlier than Formerly. Method of Cultivation more importont than Climate. In a recent conversation with Dr. Underhill says the New York American Agriculturist, of Croton Point, he informed us that both the Isabella and Catawba, are evidently ripening earlier, from year to year. Ten to twelve years since, the earliest bunches of Isabellas, were ready for market about the first of October. The past season they were equally forward on the 12th of September. This season has, however, been a remarkable one, and some allowance is to be made on that account; but last year, and the year before, the grapes were as mature about the 18th of September, as formerly at the end of that month. Dr. TJ. thinks the Isabella may be cultivated much farther north than has generally been supposed, by reducing the amount of fruit to the vine, so that there may be a greater flow of sap, and by this means an earlier growth and maturity, secured. He thinks much more depends upon the method of ...

Who will Make a Good Wipe.—When you see a young woman who rises early, sets the table and prepares her father's breadfast cheerfully, depend upon it she will make a good wife. You may rely upon it that she possesses a good disposition and kind heart. When you see a young woman just out of bed at 9 o'clock, with her elbow upon the table, gasping and sighing, *' Oh how dreadfully I feel," rely upon it she will not make a good wife. She must be lazy and mopish. When you see a girl with a broom in her hand sweeping the floor, with a rubbing board or clothes line in her hand, you may put it down that she is industrious, and will make a good wife for somebody. When you see a girl with a novel in her left hand and a fan in her right, shedding tears, you may be sure that she is unfit for a wife. Happiness and misery are before you, which will you choose?
Profitable Farming. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 4 January 1855
Profitable Farming. Mr. Coming, in his address before theConnecRiver Agricultural Society, says: Farmers will in future time come to understand that the earth and the air are both full of wealth to them. They will understand that the deeply bedded clay and the hard pan which is hidden far down in the ground are worth something more than merely to hold the world together. They will be found opening deep and broad drains, in the operation of which they will obtain valuable material for top-dressing on their upland, and at the same time make their lowlands of much greater value by relieving them of surplus water. They will discard the idea of cultivating much land with the use of a little manure, as requiring much labor and tending to penury. High cultivation, without fancy farming, will be in the way of the successful farmer of future time. The importance of thoroughly pulverizing the soil will be better understood, and the value of the subsoil. Men who know little or nothing, by expe...
DOMESTIC DIALOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 4 January 1855
DOMESTIC DIALOGUE. Between Farmer Ashfield and his Wife, Mrs. Dorcas Ashfield. (The following is principally taken from the Ohio Farmer. Wo substitute the name of our own paper for theirs:) Seene — The living room of a neat and substantial cottage. Time — An evening in November. The farmer and his wife are seen sitting on opposite sides of the table; the farmer with the last issue of the California Farmer, in his hand; while Mrs. Ashfield is engaged with her kitting work. Farmer Ashfield. —Well, really, this is comfortable. Our crops, though somewhat lighter than usual, are all gathered in, the cattle and sheep are well provided for, and with a good shelter over our heads, and a supply of all the necessaries, and many of the luxuries of life, we have, indeed, much to be thankful for. Our children, dear wife, owing to the lessons and examples of their excellent mother, are strongly attached to their humble home, aud seem to be imbued with a love of those principles, which constitute ...
Rome-The Eternal City. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 4 January 1855
Rome-The Eternal City. Ages since, on the banks of the Italian Tiber, there was a little city of no importance politically or commercially—a city built by a second Cain, and peopled by David's band regathered "every one that was in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one that was discontented." Their monarchy was trivial —their authority unacknowledged —their bravery of small account. A horde of men worse off than David's were —for he had one wife when he slew Nabal to get another; they had none at all, and with more justice than he, carried off all the sweet Abigails from their Sabine spouses, without perpetrating his crime upon their husbands. How they espoused these wives—how the earlier and later consorts of the Roman ladies warred and were reconciled, history relates. If we turn the leaves and overlook events that happened in the succeeding century or two, we shall find Rome—a state—exerting a wide influence upon her neighbors—possessed of an enriching commerce ...
Mrs. Judson—Fanny Forester. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 4 January 1855
Mrs. Judson —Fanny Forester. A mind more gifted, a temperament more sensitive, and a heart more wondrously tried by all that could bind the crown of thorns which shines brightest in heaven, never passed from the earth, we may well believe, than in the death of her, whose names (by which she is known to the world) we have here written. Of the two lives that she lived successfully, while a tenant of the fragile frame whose pulses are now still—the first, a brilliant and brief one of literary success, and the last a slow and painful martyrdom of sacrifices and sorrow —genius and an almost unparalleled sensibility deepened, a thousand-fold, the varied experience. Few will have, ever gone to the right hand of God, we reverently feel, with more about which the angels will gather, to read the record in eyes tearful no longer. She was of that heavenly purity and self-sacrificing and humble goodness, which, it is the mystery of an inscrutable Providence should be selected for such trial on e...
