Experiments in Wheat Culture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

Experiments in Wheat Culture. A well known English, agricultural writer, Cuthbcrt W. Johnson, in an article on the Wheat Crop, in the September number of the Farmer's Magazine, says: Now there are one or two facts which have been produced within the last two or three years, which are well worthy of the farmer's attention— not as offering certain rules for our imitation on all soils and in every situation, but as affording valuable suggestions for new experimental courses of inquiry.. It is prett} r certain that the best state to which the soil should be brought for the reception of the seed-wheat, is not in all cases well determined. At the July gathering at Mr. Mechi's farm, some fine specimens of wheat ears were produced by Mr. Piper, of Colne Engaine. grown on land which had not been plowed for several years, and yet had, with the aid of topdressings of soot and other artificial manures, produced good crops of wheat every year: here was the result from an undisturbed soil. On tho...

Agriculture the Only Real Source of Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

Agriculture the Only Real Source of Wealth. A whiter in the Mark-Lane Express, maintains the position that commerce and manufactures must ever be secondar}' to the cultivation of tho soil, and that the latter is not only the most important of all the industrial pursuits of man. but also the only real source of wealth. In proof of the truth of this position he compares the nature and results of other industrial pursuits with that of the cultivation of the soil. It may tend to elevate the business of the farmer, both in his own estimate and in that of others, to consider some of the principal points and features in this comparison. For this purpose we present a brief outline of them to the American reader. First, as to commerce. There is nothing produced by commerce, its office being merely the barter of commodities. And whether this barter takes place between one country and another, or between individualsof the same country,it is but an exchange of equivalents. Hence it is to be reg...

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

BE BRAVE. [Whew Hercules went to unbind Prometheus, the ancients tell us that he sailed the length of the great ocean iv an eartiieu pitcher.] Brother man, where'er thou art, That art suffering grief and woe, From this fable take new heart, Feel the lesson it dith show. Godlike mind in body frail, That can stem tho wintry sea, Breasting storms, with tattered sail, Struggling with adversity— Know that triumph ever blesses Him who courage still possesses. When the storm had pressed thee sore, And the wrecking rocks are near, Fearless gaze upon the shore, Though it enow but Stern and drear; Warily direct thy helm. Grasping it with steadfast hand; Fearful hearts slight storms o'erwhelm, Timid one's ne'er reach the land ; Keep thine eye undimmed by fear. Thou shalt sate to harbor steer. See'st thou on Life's dreary coast, All thy fortune wrecked and goneAll that made thy manhood's bonst Vanished like the dews of dawn— Friends that feasted at thy board, Eyes that looktd with love on thee—...

THE ONE ACRE FARM; OR, A Cure for Hard Times. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

THE ONE ACRE FARM; OR, A Cure for Hard Times. ICHABOD HOE. "How much land have you got here in your lot. Mr. Briggs?" " I have one acre." " One acre ! and here you are taking the New England Farmer, the Cultivator, Hovey's Magazine, and the Horticulturist, and all because you have one acre of ground ! How many such papers would you have to take if you had a hundred acres ?" 44 1 shouldn't probabJy need more than I take now; you know, Mr. Chapman, one can 4go through with allthe notions' on on© acre as well as on a hundred." 44 A man can throw away money without any. if he has a mind to.

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

The Love of Woman. Man is the creature of interest and ambition. His nature reads him forth into the struggle and bustle of the world. Love is but the embellishment of h»s early life, or a song piped in the intervals of the acts. He seeks for fame, for fortune, for space in the world's thought, and dominion over his fellow-men. But a woman's whole life is a history of the affections. The heart is her world ; it is there her ambition strives for empire —it is there her avarice strives for hidden treasures. She sends forth her sympathies on adventure ; she embarks her whole soul in the traffic of affection ; and, if shipwrecked, her case is hopeless —for it is a bankruptcy of the heart. To a man the disappointment of love may occasion some bitter pangs; it wounds some feelings of tenderness —it blasts some prospects of felicity ; but he is an active being; he may dissipate his thoughts in the whirl of varied occupation, or he may plunge into the tide of pleasure; or. if the scene of d...

The Charms of a Married Life. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 February 1855

The Charms of a Married Life. If in that chair yonder, not the one your feet lie upon, but the other beside you. closer yet, were seated a sweet-faced girl, with a pretty little foot lying out upon the hearth, a bit of lace running round the swelling throat, the hair parted to a charm over a forehead fairasany of your dreams; and if you could reach an arr round that chair back, without fear of giving offense, and suifer your fingers to play idly with those curls that escape down the neck, and if you could clasp with your other hand those little white taper fingers of hers, which lie so temptingly within reach, and so, talk softly and low in the presence of the blaze, wile the hours slip without knowledge, and the winter winds whistle uncared for; if, in short, you were no bachelor, but the husband of some such sweet image (dream call it. rather), would it not be far pleasanter than a cold, single nightsitting, counting the sticks, reckoning the length of the blaze, and the height of...

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

PRUSSIAN MAXIMS. GOOD AM) EVIL Good genders good; from evil, evils grow As wheat-seeds, wheat; and barley, barley show, A GOOD WIPX. A modest, chaste, and an obedient wife Lifts her poor husband to a kingly throne; What though the live long day with toils be rife, The solace of his cares at night's hia own. If she be modest, and her words be kind, Mark not her beauty or her want of grace The fairest woman, if deformed in mind, Will in thy heart's affections find no place; Dazzling as Eden's beauty to the eye, In outward form; foul is her face within. Better in dungeon, bound with chains, to he, Than mark at homo a wife of frowning mien. Better bare feet than pinching shoes. Tiie woes Of travel are less hard than broils at home. Contentment's door upon that mansion close, Whence wrangling women's high-pitched voices come. Boasting Yoono Ladies —When you hear a young woman boastingly say she never did a "stitch of work in her life," or that she cannot tell a pork steak from a squash p...

MISCELLANEOUS. Ingham's Improved Smut Machines. THESE Machines combine all the apparatus necessary to cleanse Grain, rendering it unnecessary to have any other machinery for that purpose in the mill. They are portable and occupy about four feet square on the floor, by eight and a hull net in hnlgtit ; and will clean the worst samples of Smutty Grain, also remove short straws, white caps, suds uud other foul substances in the most perfect manure.
