Celebrated English Oaks. —An English publication gives tlie following accounts of the mosl celebrated oaks in England: The oldest oak in England is supposed to be the Parliament Oak (front the tradition of Edward I. holding a parliament under its branches) in Climpstone Park, belonging to the Duke of Portland, the park being also the most ancient in the Island ; it was a park before rhe Conquest, and was seized as such by the conqueror. The tree is supposed to be 1500 years old. The tallest oak in England was believed to be the property of the same nohVm&amp;n; it was called the ''Duke's Walking Sick," was higher than Westminster Abbey, and Stood till of late years. The largest oak in ths country is called the Calthrop Oak, Yorkshire ; it measured seventy-eight feet in circumference where the trunk meets the ground. The " Three Shire Oak," at Worksop, is so called from its covering part of the counties of York, Nottingham and Derby. It had the greatest expanse of any recorde...

NEW SUBSTITUTE FOR THE POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
NEW SUBSTITUTE FOR THE POTATO. I« the garden of the Horticultural Society at Chiswick are growing two plants of a Chinese yam, which is expected to prove an excellent substitute for the potato. They have been obtained from the Jardin dcs Plantes at Paris, where they have been made the subject of experiments that leave no doubt that it will become a plant of real importance in cultivation. " If," says M. Decaisne. who has paid much attention to matters of this kind, " a new plant has a chance of becoming useful in rural economy, it must fulfill certain conditions, in the absence of which its cultivation cannot be proiitable. In the first place, it must have been domesticated in some measure, and must suit the climate; moreover, it must in a few months go through all the stages of development, so as not to interfere with the ordinary and regular course of cropping; and, finally, its produce must have a market value in one form or another. If the plant is intended for the food of man, ...
ADVANTAGE OF CUT FEED. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
ADVANTAGE OF CUT FEED. We copy the following from the Wool Grower, showing in the most satisfactory manner the advantage of cut over uncut hay in feeding fattening cattle, milch cows, and working oxen. In feeding work horses it is still more important that their feed be cut, for it is a barbarous custom to compel a horse, after working all day, to consume the whole night in grinding the hay which • . . • i • ,t i '. *.1 i , ■ • Working oxen do not so thoroughly masticate their food before it is first swallowed, and they lay at rest while the process of rumination is going on: It is generally admitted to be good economy to cut hay for cattle, if it is of an inferior quality, much less being wasted by tho animal; and it affords an excellent opportunity of mixing meal or shorts with it, by way of seasoning, making it more palatable as well as more nutritious. But many farmers have their doubts whether it pays to cut good hay—whether mush benefit is derived from the operation in the way...
BARLEY FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
BARLEY FOR HORSES. The following remarks on the value of Barley as food for horses, from the pen of J. Harris, agricultural editor of the Rural New Yorker, who has had an excellent opportunity of witnessing the feeding economy of farmers, both in England and in this country, contains some ver}' valuable suggestions on this subject. There is one point, however, in relation to the value of the barleycrop, which should not be omitted—its great superiority to either corn or oats in a rotation, as a predecessor of wheat. Whatever theory may say. the practice of many of our most skillful farmers gives the preference greatly to barley as compared to oats, so far as exhaustion of the land is concerned ; and we all know that very good wheat crops have been obtained after corn, since the advent of the weevil has rendered it necessary to sow as early as the first of autumn, in order to throw the ripening period beyond the reach of the insect season. — Country Gentleman. One of our best Western...
FLAX, AND MR. MAPES. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
FLAX, AND MR. MAPES. In another number, says the Prairie Farmer, will bo found a criticism upon a flax speech of Mr. Mapes, before the N. Y. Farmers's Club, by Geo. Anderson, Esq. Mr. Mapes comes to the rescue of his reputation with a denial that he is correctly reported in tho article criticised, and gives the following as true statements mnde by him. They certainly look more sensible: "The treatment and manufacture of flax is fast becoming of great importance to the American people, and particularly of that portion which is now wasted, from flax grown for the purpose of saving the seed. Thousands of tons of tangled flax straw are annually burned in some single counties in Ohio, and until the present time it has been nearly or quite valueless, except as a manure for land. Improvements of all kinds followed the discovery of Clausen's process, and among others, Mr. A. H. Caryl, of Ohio, has invented a machine for manufacturing the tangled straw, and many other of the now wasted produ...
THE WAY 'TIS DONE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
THE WAY 'TIS DONE. "Men do not gather grapes of thorns, nor figs of thistles," and yet it is as reasonable to expect to do this, as to anticipate success in our Agricultural pursuit while it is enveloped in such ignorance of its first principles. All intelligent minds readily admit tho correctness of the parable of the sower, and no farmer would expect much of a crop from the " stony ground," nor from the seed that had not much "depth of earth," nor a harvest if the " birds of the air came and gathered it Up"; yet why would it not be as reasonable to expect great results from these, as to look for a good harvest from the present system of farming? We are told that the seed that fell where there was not much depth of earth, withered away; and yet, how deep an impression does this truth make upon the farmer ? Go examine their systems of plowing, and see the shajlow earth upon which the grain is cast, and do we wonder there is no better result? When the summer sun pours upon it, it wit...
Santa Clara County Agricultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
Santa Clara County Agricultural Society. It is a pleasure to note the interest that is awakening in various parts of our State, in relation to the necessity of Agricultural information. There is that kind of interest being felt that gives promise of a goodly future. Those who are now fixtures of this State, those who are occupying lands where the titles are settled, are feeling the absolute demands of Agricultural Organizations for the diffusion of that kind of knowledge that belongs to the profession. This is right! this is the guarantee of the future, and it is the best kind of an endorsement. Napa Valley was No. 1 in the establishment of County Agricultural Societies, and has done good. Santa Clara county followed quickly, and formed No. 2, at San Jose, and has also done good. We hear with increased pleasure that a meeting of this Society has been called the present week, on Saturday, at San Jose, and that there is an increased interest among the members ; that they will take imm...
Agriculture vs. the Statute Book. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
Agriculture vs. the Statute Book. By reference to the bound volumes of the Statutes of California, the singular fact will appear that the word " agriculture" does not appear in the index to that work. Previous to the year 1854, agriculture, ranches, farms, gardens, &amp;c, were not deemed themes of sufficient moment by our Legislators to call for their especial notice and action. A better spirit, however, now prevails throughout the entire State Government. A wise Legislation marks the age; and our law-makers are beginning to look to, and act upon, the real wants of the people. By such a cour?e of action are they nobly proving themselves to be the friends of the people and their representatives instead of the mere intHruments of party. It is certainly cheering to note the various and important bills that have been introduced during the present session, however much time has been consumed in the il great unsettled " question of the day. What is now required in order that our ...
State Fair of 1855. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 February 1855
State Fair of 1855. Farmers, Gardeners, and Stock-Raisers, should bear in mind the importance of an early preparation for the State Exhibition o/1855. Commence in Season ! —Farmers and Gardeners should remember this when they put in their seed, and cultivate with regard to it. New and valuable varieties of Grains, Vegetables, and Fruits, should have especial care that they are fairly tested in our climate. The agricultural products of California, are the proudest heralds of her future fame and greatness. The sheaves of " golden grain,"—the vine with its "purple clusters."—the fig and the olives — these, and all her luscious fruits, shall ere long, far, far outweigh in the means of conferring health, wealth, happiness, and permanent prosperity, all the other sources of wealth that have won for this commonwealth the title of the " Golden State."
