LETTERS FROM ROVING JACK. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

LETTERS FROM ROVING JACK. NO. V. The Corner that is Left Out—Legislation for the Farmer Needed—Conflict Interest of the Stock-raiser and Farmer —A New County Wanted, &c. Merced River, Jan. 27, 1855. Editors Farmer: The clodhopper in this vicinity, from his peculiar situation in reference to locality, is perhaps more justifiable in being skeptical and not easily falling in with the opinion of others that great, good will be done by the present Legislature for this corner of God's moral vineyard. I say corner, from the fact that is a corner, and one that has been most generally left out. We would most humbly ask what we have done that we should be as it were left or considered out of the pale of Government not by any means in a tax-paying point, but in reference to the benefits of Legislation. The farmer, 'tis a melancholy fact, has in a measure been wholly forgotten by the California Legislature, and-more particularly have the citizens of the Merced River, in their petiti...

WASHINGTON'S FARM. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

WASHINGTON'S FARM. The following from the Maine Fanner, we pronounce good, and say that for spunk. Down-East will carry off the palm : Every son and daughter in the Union has heard of Mount V ernon, the home of (lien. Washington. It is a place to which many a traveler bends his steps, in order to stand at the tomb of that great man, so dear to the memory of Americans. A move has been made in Congress, that the United States purchase this homestead, and convert it to the uses of an institution, where young men might be taught agriculture as a science, and agriculture as an art, that is to say, both the theory and practice of farming. This plan originated with F. P. Blair, Esq., and has been discussed in Congress, but no definite action taken upon it. Why does the proposition receive so little attention ? Because it is of so peaceful and noiseless a character. It is too useful, —there is not blood and thunder enough about it. It is too devoid of gunpowder glory to excite attention. Wh...

WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

WHEAT. We find some valuable information relating to wheat culture in the Working Farmer, furnished to that publication by J. Payne Lowe: Selection of Seed. —It is of superlative importance that the best varieties of wheat should be used for seed ; and this fact becomes still more apparent if there be any truth in the old and hackneyed phrase, that " Like begets like." It is supposed by many growers that the peculiarities of different kinds of wheat are retained for some years, when sown in localities other than those to which they were natives. Care should be taken that seed wheat be free from the seeds of other plants, and also that grains of inferior quality, rendered so by disease or the attacks of insect*, etc., be not used. It is also of much importance that the varieties .suited to the particular climate in which it is intended to be grown, be selected, and in these days of railroad travel the getting of seeds from distant places within a short period of time, can be easily a...

Mr. B. will receive communications for our paper, and be ready to receive subscriptions and advance the interest of the California Farmer, in all its departments.

What Constitutes a State? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

What Constitutes a State? In the inaugural address of Gov. Grimes, of lowa, we recognize that tone which, when felt more generally throughout the Commonwealth, will give a character to all our institutions and raise us in reputation and influence at home and abroad. When the Chief Magistrates of every sovereign State shall be imbued with a desire to improve the condition of the whole State, regardless of sectional or party influence ; when they shall resolve to leave an impress of their labors, that shall be remembered for good only —then, and not till then, shall we see at feel all the best and lasting influence which our republican institutions are calculated to exert, or were intended to exert by the patriot founders of that glorious chart of liberty to which we look for peace, prosperity, and happiness. "Educate the people," is a watchword that should be heralded from one portion of our land to another. Educate them by every means in the power of each and every form of Governmen...

Patent Office Seeds. Sacramento, Jnu. 27, 1855. Messrs. Editors : Having just received from the Patent Office at Washington, a small assortment of seeds, selected in England by the agent of the office. I shall be happy to distribute the same to such professional and amateur gardeners as may wish to test their value in our interesting soil and climate.

California Bacon, Hams and Pork. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

California Bacon, Hams and Pork. How few are aware of the rapid progress that is now in operation for the entire independence of California. Our forefathers fought, bled and died to win their own independence from British tyranny and sway; but from that day we have been paying an annual sum of "tribute money" to the same British tyranny. We may talk as much as we please of independence, but there is no freedom so long as we look to them or receive of them what are esteemed as the necessaries of life, or rather called necessaries, although properly named extravagancies; and what, was true of our forefathers in their efforts for independence, is true now as applied to ourselves in California. We need not talk of independence so long as we are so dependent upon other States for what we could easily raise or manufacture within our own borders. We rejoice to know the struggle for independence is commencing in earnest. Many new and valuable kinds of products are daily brought to light, al...

Festivities at Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

Festivities at Sacramento. Although San Francisco is the metropolis of our State, it is not the capital—and although the commercial emporium, yet Sacramento can and does, offer opportunities of a social nature equal if not superior, to any city in our State. We do not fear contradiction when we assert that the extent and influence of social life and enjoyments are more widely felt at Sacramento than elsewhere in California. Fashionable life, etiquette, wealth, and fashion, may have a greater preponderance at the " Bay City," but the l: Queen City of the Plains," will wear the crown in all the widely extended influences of refined social life. The family circle, the pleasant intercourse of neighborhoods, and the charms of social parties of pleasure, here present a degree of rational enjoyment no where else to be found upon the Pacific coast. When we speak of the public gatherings, and the literary and scientific meetings, we cannot but remark that they are encouraged and graced by th...

The Climate of California. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

The Climate of California. The magnificent scenery of California, especially her winter scenery, was never more enjoyed than it has been the present season. Heaven never sent brighter skies, nor June, with the breath of roses, ever breathed a sweeter breeze than is now enjoyed in the central portions of our State. The Sacramento valley, with her balmy atmosphere and her bright moonlight, seems to rival the vales of Italy with all their fabled beauty ; —but we refrain further words. We were on the prairies of Sacramento a few days since, and had enjoyed the delicious weather there, and felt inclined to speak in the fulness of our admiration of it, when our eye fell upon the following beautiful thoughts, as expressed by a correspondent of the Sacramento Union. Their beauty, truthfulness and originality, so quickly obliterated our own humble description, that we laid down our pen, and quickly catching the inspiration, became convinced that we were not touching our own thoughts with too...

What Papers do You Send Home? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

What Papers do You Send Home? It is " Steaincr-day " and I must go and get some papers to send home that our friends may know how we are getting along here. I have no time to write, and I must therefore send some papers. But what papers shall 1 send ? Father is a democrat, but mother is a whig ! —then uncle and brothers are " Know Nothings." while sisters all love music, paintings, and llowers ! I have it! I'll send the "California Farmer." Politics ain't of much account, and I know they had all much rather know how we live —how we prosper—what we have to eat and drink—how our homes look, and where all attend church— who is married —who is dead, Ac. This kind of news will prove much more acceptable to them than all the politics, recorder's court proceedings, sheriffs' sales, &c, in the world. Yes, what our eastern friends want to know about is, human progress, improvement, home comforts, and such like, and I will therefore go and buy twenty copies of the*" California Far...

Examine your Fruit Trees. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

Examine your Fruit Trees. Tilt: TREES IN CONVENTION. Wt: are persuaded that more trees die of the laziness or carelessness of their owners than front all other causes united. Were they gifted with tongues, and assembled in convention, we think there would be indignant remonstrance at their untimely M taking off," and the cause of their death would almost invariably be laid at the grower's door. Whether such a convention has actually been held or not, we do not presume to affirm; but we find among our editorial notes, reports of speeches said to have been delivered at such a tree meeting. It seems the orchard and garden trees took a hint from the -'Joint-worm Convention" held sometime this last summer, down South, which they saw reported in the papers, and thought if the field insects could muster a gathering, it was fair for them to be up and doing. So a meeting was called at Pomological Hall, to protest against death's doings, and to devise ways and means to promote the longivity o...

The Castor-Oil Plant. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

The Castor-Oil Plant. The castor-oil plant, (Rivinis communis.) belongs to the Natural Order Euphoibiaeea. 1 , which consists of a collection of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants, abounding with an acrid, milky juice. The plants of this order grow in warn, regions, especially in equinoctial America, and the interior of Africa, where they occur as trees or bushes or lactescent herbs, and often present the appearance of Cactuses, from which they are at once distinguished by their milky juice. The castor-oil plant grows spontaneously in the East and West Indies, in Africa, and the southern parts of Europe. In the temperate and more northern counties of Europe and America it is a herbaceous annual, with a primrose or mealy stem, peltate-palmate leaves, and simple unisexual flowers, the male and female being presept on the same plant. The fruit consists of numerous clusters of thorny three-seeded capsules. The plant grows from three to eight feet in height, but the first frosts of autu...

Trees and Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

Trees and Flowers. We feel the irremediable destruction of flowers more than we do the stripping of trees and shrubs, because these appeal more than they to our protection and to our fondness, We look up to trees as superiors, in whom reside guardianship and protection. The}'teach us patience, endurance, and unwearied hope. We see them beaten bare by autumn storms, and perfectly content to stand bare. The moment the winter relents, they spring forth again, and all the summer long you hear them singing, but never do you hear a tree rehearse its wrongs.. It forgets the past. It lives outwardly so long as it can, and then retreats within itself, patient to wait for better times. And we feel also, in -the case 6f trees, something of the veneration which antiquity always inspires. They are old chronologers. They are older than the oldest living men. That old oak was an old oak when that crippled old man yonder was a boy, and it was an old tree in the days of hits fathers. These faces tha...
