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

John Tabor. Let justice be tempered with mercy." While it is the duty of every good citizen to foin in seeing the law sustained, and in aiding in carrying into execution ever} - decision of our courts, it is also his duty to hear the cry of mercy and be ready to join in the prayer that may be made for executive clemency to those who may, by being spared, as fully serve the ends of justice as if the full penalty of the law was enforced. We arc for law, and yet we are for mercy ; and when we recall the history of the unfortunate Tabor, as connected with the melancholy event which now demands his life as atonement, we confess we lean to the sidexif mercy. By the evidence which has been adduced of his character and diposition, there are circumstances that demand mercy in the case, and that mercy we trust will not be invoked in vain. We learn that recently, petitions most numerously signed, bearing the names of our best citizens, are now in preparation to forward to the executive, and fr...

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

FROM THE EAST. The P. If. steamship Golden Age arrived at this port Monday morning. We have dates from New York nine days later, and from Liverpool fifteen days later than previous advices. The bill to extend the time of the L T . S Land Commission in California, has passed both Houses of Congress, and will doubtless be approved by President Pierce. The House of Representatives voted down the amendment to the post office appropriation bill to provide for carrying the mails from Independence to San Francisco in coaches. An amendment for camels was ruled out of order. The Congress of the Dominican Republic has rej"etcd the Cazneau treaty by a large vote. N. P. Giddings, anti-Douglass man. has been elected the Delegate to Congress from Nebraska, by 100 majority Total vote 1,000. Hard times press severely on all classes in the Eastern States. Meetings are being held in New York for the purpose of aiding the mechanics who are out of work. It is stated as a certainty that I)r. Bcale has r...

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

FROM EUROPE. Accounts from the Crimea to 13th December, say that the siege operations seem to have made but little way, and the state of forced inactivity to which the besiegers were reduced by the exhaustion of their previous efforts, seems-to have been turned to account by the Russians, in the further strengthening of their defences. The reports of the falling off of their supplies of ammunition are belied by the fact that from the 23d of November to the 13th of December, during which they made a succession of vigorous sorties, the firing from their batteries was kept up almost incessantly. The Grand Duke Michael was observed to be encouraging by his presence the efforts of the besieged. Supplies of provisions were also said to have arrived in the town. From the preparations made for arming some of the Russian vessels in the harbor, it was thought that they were about to put to sea with a view to intercept the transports of the allies; and in the Raltic it is stated that they are ...

Culture of the Raspberry Plant. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

Culture of the Raspberry Plant. Madrono Ranch, Napa, J«n. 15th, 1855. Messrs. Editors: Judging from the tone ofj your paper your readiness fo impart information whenever desired on the subject of agriculture and horticulture, and your ability so to do. I take the liberty to address you a few lines in the style of an inquirer. Although I have a way of my own, I always seek to know the best. Now what I want to know is, what is the best mode of treatment of Raspberry Plants? I have some 500 Oregon plants that were set last yearThey did not bear any fruit —w ere trained up to ■tikes four feet high, three shoots to a stake — this is their present condition. Now is it best to cut the shoots down to the ground and train up three or more new ones, or let the old ones remain? The plants are very strong and thrifty, and some of the shoots are nine feet in length. I also wish information on planting the grape vine—l mean the distance the rows ought to be set apart, and also the space necessary...

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

The Concord Grape. No horticultural production has excited a greater interest of late years among pomologists. than this new seedling grape. Its hardiness, productiveness, large size, and reputed earlincss of ripening,—nearly a month before the Isabella, — have given it very strong claims, at least for a thorough trial. In consequence of the repeated inquiries which havo been made of us as to its quality, we recently made application for a specimen of the fruit, and have been politely furnished by E. W, Bull, its originator, with a box of beautiful bunches, which came in fine condition, notwithstanding a railway ride of several hundred miles. Although the largest bunches had been previously selected for the different horticultural exhibitions, and the drouth of the season had sensibly affected their growth, these were the most showy of any native grape we have met with. The berries measured about throe fourth of an inch in diameter, and were almost perfect spheres; the bunches were ...

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

Double Flowers. The London Horticultural Cabinet of 1847, as quoted in Hovey's Magazine, says that merely planting the fresh seeds of double flowers, does not at all insure double llowers again, nor even increase the liability over any other seed similarly used. But that, to obtain them, the seed must be kept several years, or the extreme verge of vitality, when their vegetating power or vital force has become nearly expended, and that will result in those imperfect or unnatural productions known as double flowers. In the words of the article alluded to, — ; 'lf, after having gathered the seeds of malcomia annua, or ten-weeks' stock, we sow them immediately afterwards, the greatest number of the seedlings will produce single flowers, whilst, on the contrary, if we preserve these same seeds for three or four years, and then sow them, we shall find double llowers upon nearly every one of the plants. To explain this phenomenon, we say that in keeping a seed for several years, we fatigu...

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

One or two gentleman recently conversing about the Natural Bridge of Virginia, remarked that there was an extraordinary incident connected with it, for that General Washington once threw a doljar completely over it, an achievement which has not been performed since. "No wonder," replied his companion, " for a dollar in those day* could be made to go a great deal farther than at the present time." When ill news comes too late to be serviceable to your neighbor, keep it to yourself.—Zimmerman.

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

Nomenclature of Fowls. The principle on which poultry nomenclature is founded is mainly that of their original geographical dispersion. In several classes this is sufficiently authenticated ; but in others from the little attention, in former days, bestowed upon the subject, and the difficulty of recognizing present rates in the usually vague and indistinct accounts of the few early writers on this branch of natural history, great uncertainty necessarily prevails. Malays, and other Asiatic fowls, Bantams and Shanghaes. we are enabled to trace satisfactorily from their primitive habits; hence, indeed, our often expressed unwillingless to accepUhe erroneous designation of "Cochin-China," a district from which few, if any, specimens of the lastnamed fowls appear to have been derived, while Shanghae is clearly the head quarters of the breed. The same reasoning sanctions the employment of the term Dorking to the five-clawed fowls that had their origin in the districts around that town, o...

Commissioners to the Exhibition at Paris. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

Commissioners to the Exhibition at Paris. The following letter, addressed to Gov. Bigler, will show that the Commissioners have been industrious in obtaining specimens of the various products of California, to be forwarded to the Exhibition at Paris. It appears to us that the Commissioners have pursued the proper course. The plan the)* have adopted, if fully carried into effect, will do more to give the people of Kuropc a correct impression of the vast resources of our State, than volume upon volume of books of travel: San Francisco, 1-t mo., 18.ii, 1855. Respected Friend: The Commissioners for the Paris Exhibition, notice that a Bill has been introduced to the Legislature, authorizing the appointment of an indefinite number of persons to attend that Exhibition, &c. They beg leave to call thy attention to the fact that the duty of Commissioners appointed to attend the World's Fair, is to aid the managers in classifying the products from their section, as well as to atten...

EXTRACT FROM "THE ANDES." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

EXTRACT FROM "THE ANDES." AN UNPUBLISHED POEM, BY C. W. B. NO. V. Andes) Thine is the throne wliere winter sits, asleep, Numb and impassive, save when wind's career In cloudy chariots, waking tremulous Echoes in the icy air, or thunders Break the silence of his frozen sleep. His breath, changes to stone, the very streams That strive to leap down, o'er aged crags, To greet their sisters, in the vales below i And when his icy watid is o'er them wav'd, The cateracts, frozen in their dizzy leap. Moveless, and voiceless, to precipices cling. Summer's step, ne'er mounts these lofty palaces, Nor Flora, with her gifts, dare here intrude. The pine tree, crowns the Appenine and Alps, And lichens cling, to summits, where theso die— But here! what that hath vitality can live! For towering unutterably high, These mightier mountains, gaze serenely down Upon all mlhi, that owns no king, but death I And yet that realm is beautilul I the snow Untrodden and unstain'd, spread o'er ill, Conceals the ro...

Lecture of Hon. Thomas H. Benton on the Pacific Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 February 1855

Lecture of Hon. Thomas H. Benton on the Pacific Railroad. The fifth of the series of lectures before the Mercantile Library Association, was delivered in the Trement Temple, by the Hon. Thomas H. Benton, of Missouri. The doors of the building were thrown open at half-past six o'clock, and the hall was speedily crowded to overflowing by gentlemen and ladies assembled to listen to the words of the illustrious statesman. The seats in the body of the house, in the galleries, and upon the stage, were filled with human beings, and the aisles were thronged with people—including some ladies —in a standing position. Upon the platform, immediately in the rear of the speaker, were seated, among other gentlemen of distinction, the venerable Josiah Quincy, Senr., Hon. Abbott Lawrence, Hon. Robt. 0. Winthrop, Governor Washburn. Lieut. Gov. Plunkett, Judge Shaw, Judge Wildes, Mayor Smith, our Governor elect, Henry J. Gardner, Wm. M. Sturgis, and Richard H.

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

Fanny Fern. We should be glad to give the true name of this authoress. But she prefers still to maintain her incognito, and a proper deference for the obligations of courtesy (which are as binding in literary as in social life) forbids our doing what would otherwise be an equal gratification to our readers and ourselves. With regard to the personal history of Fanny Fern, we feel a similar constraint. We shall, therefore, only touch, and that lightly, upon such points as, under the circumstances, may be referred to without the slightest violation of propriety. Not many years since, Fanny Fern was living — no matter where —in affluence. No home need be more lovely, no family more happy, than hers. Ample wealth, devoted love, cultivated intellect, refined taste, and a fervid religious spirit, combined to make that home whatever could be desired on earth, and excited the respect and admiration of all admitted to the happy circle. But suddenly a bolt fell. Death came, and the husband and...

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

FROM THE SOUTH. The citizens of Los Angeles have just completed another new school house and appointed a lady and gentleman tcacheis. The San Diego Correspondent of the Herald says: Complaint is made of the want of rain in this part of the country, but our farmers and rancheros are busy putting in large crops of grain, and much more will be raised the coming season than in any previous year. New ground is being plowed up in every direction, and with but little labor the land nniy be made to produce an abundant harvest. For several days past, says the Star, we have enjoyed the most'beautiful "summer weather, the thermometer raging at noon as high as 83 degrees Fahrenheit. We have hail as yet no very severe frosts, as we notice the peach leaves are still green in many locations. Mr. D. W. Alexander, assisted by his vaqucros, lassoed a wild boar of enormous size, who it is believed has been running wild on the plains for years. His tusks were from six to eight inches long, the potency ...
