PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE. Fenn Valley, February 10, 1855. Editors Farmek : Soon after I settled in this charming little valley, I became a subscriber to your valuable journal the California Farmer, and it has been a regular and welcome visitor ever since. I have brought ray family with me, and expect to make California my adopted home, and of course feel a deep interest in the prosperity of the country. I have noticed your oft-repeated request that farmers would contribute to your paper ; this, gentlemen, is right, and is all that is wanting to make your journal everything that can be desired. We want the practical experiments of California Farmers. I have felt the effects of this want very materially the past season. The soil, climate, mode of culture, and many other things, are very different here to what they are in the Eastern States; hence little matters are of vast importance to new settlers. For instance, last year I planted potatoes on land that did not yield the seed planted, w...

ON THE POTATO ROT. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

ON THE POTATO ROT. A SUPPLEMENT TO THE " POTATO RESTORED." Kuitoh Michigan I'auiikii : -As I am confident rfifvF tny of the rot, are correct, and that several erroneous tY»eories respecting it are being circulated through this State, I take this method of stating some interesting facts connected with the subject; and as Ido not pretend to be a il Potato Doctor." but merely an experienced agriculturist, 1 do not wish to have these important facts kept secret, but made as public as possible, by means of your widely circulated journal. Beginning with 1845, the first year of blight, I will make an extract from " the report of the commission of Agriculture, of the Province of Groningen in Holland, on the Potato disease." The report after a few preliminary remarks, describes the appearance of the disease thus: The intense heat of the early part of the summer of 1845. was succeeded by cold and rainy weather, which lasted from the 15th of July, to the end of the month of August. On the 21st...

SUCCESS OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

SUCCESS OF THE FARMER. The success of the farmer is in proportion to the amount of knowledge he brings to bear upon his profession, and not on the strong hands or capital employed, nor an}' other exterior advantage. Like most other undertakings, it depends on the mind of the man. The hands are the instruments by which the plow is guided, or a scythe or fork is wielded, and strong ones are necessary for the work; but they arc only the instruments of the controlling intellect which plans, devises, arranges, and controls the whole. Dolts do not make the best farmers, but the men who think are they who will succeed here just as they will anywhere else. If this be true we can sec at a glance where improvement in agriculture is to commence. The farmer is required to be a thinking man; and he is the best farmer who brings the best trained intellect to the work—the soundest logic, the best judgment, and the purest heart. It is true that men acquire considerable skill in most pursuits of mer...

The Word is Onward! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

The Word is Onward! The best proof that the State is progressing in spite of the depression that pervades a great portion of its interests, arises from the fact that we see those interests that tend to permanency constantly progressing. The money market may be tight, merchandise may fall, ships may want freight, and mechanics' wages may be less; all the general interests may feel what is called "hard times:" but still, if we sec fields plowed, grain sowed, lands fenced, cottages built and the stock increased; if we see this, and see people coming to our shores, then ttc may fee aenarod that CftZ Word is onward ' Warehouses may he closed, banks may break, men may be out of trade and employment; but this is not in vain. All need rest, all need change —like the plant that has blossomed and borne its fruit. The winter conies, its fruit is gathered, the leaves fall, and the tree may appear blighted and dead ; but soon the rains of Spring, the returning sun and its renewed warmth re-cloth...

Steamships to China. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

Steamships to China. Extract from the Speech of Hon. M. S. Isatham, of California, delivered in the House oj Representatives, January 9. 1855. I Mr. Charman : 1 rise to say a few words upon | a subject of interest, not only to my const'tuents, but. I believe, to the whole country, in favor of the bill establishing a fine of mail steamships between San Francisco and Shanghae. in China, touching at the Sandwich Islands, and at JapanJ I am aware that the State which I have the honor in part to represent, has been looked upon in the House, and in the Senate, as a constant applicant for legislative favors, and a tax upon the United States Treasury. California has been represented as swallowing up a large amount of our national resources; but the question, how much the wealth and enterprise of California has added to our national prosperity and power?—which is essential to a proper appreciation of the subject—is often lost sight of, or treated merely as incidental to the problem of financ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

Ron on Page, Bacon & Co.—The reported suspension of the House of Page & Bacon in St. Louis, caused a report that the House of Page, Bacon & Co. in this city was about to fail, and numerous persons crowded about the house on on Saturday to obtain their deposits. The rush was made principally by poor men and women, whose all was dependent on the solvency of the bank, and whose anxiety led them to crowd toward the counter at the risk of their lives, several getting severely bruised. The most of the heavy business men dealirg with the House had sufficient confidence to leave their funds with it. The run subsided before the close of banking hours. It is almost needless to say, says the Chronicle, that, although the news from New York was of a nature to alarm those not fully aware of the condition of the firm named, still there was not a particle of reason for the panic, as the House is fully able to pay all its liabilities and then be worth a million o...

The Ohio Pomological Society. By the Circular of this Society, we note one of the important features of it—viz ; that members were invited to attend prepared to report upon the following points: Ist. The fruits cultivated by himself, or in his region, with the proper name, and all tlie local and synonyms known to him.

Tree Planting. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

Tree Planting. We notice among the munificent bequests of Elliot Oressen, a legacy of 55.000 to be employed in planting trees in Philadelphia. There is something touching in this gift. It is fragrant of good taste anil friendly feeling. It aecms to express gratitude for the comforting shade of some old tree under which the <weary philanthropist had meditated his schemes of usefulness; and of considerate interest for the health and pleasure of future generations, who arc to people the city of his birth. And when monuments of marble and of bronze shall crumble, the broad arms of the elm and the oak shall stand out against the sky as the befitting memento of the liberality and the last of the tree-loving Philadelphian. Every one should plant trees. No object is more beautiful than a spreading elm. or a lively evergreen ; none more productive than the apple or the luscious pear. Half the labor bestowed on a single crop |of potatoes, would originate an orchard, the product of ...

Peculiarities in Plants. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

Peculiarities in Plants. If we consider the vegetable kingdorh attentively, we are astonished as much with the variety as with the greatness and magnificence of the phenomena which it offers to our contemplation. Almost every season, every day, every hour, and every place, presents us plants under different circumstances, with peculiar qualities and in varied forms. Scarcely does the soft air of spring refresh the earth, when every object, in which there is still a germ of life,"becomes developed with astonishing rapidity. The plants which spring has graced with foliage, summer decks with a multitude of flowers. In autumn the fruits are collected. In winter those plants, once so beautiful, are found to be, some in a state of dissolution, others in a state of rest, or in a continued development, which proves that nature is engaged in an indefatigable activity. But, in winter, the greater number of plants die ; the fallen foliage decomposes, returns into the earth, and becomes the ric...

How Much Tobacco is Used. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

How Much Tobacco is Used. The present annual production of tobacco is estimated to be 4,000,000,000 pounds—four billions of pounds ! This is all smoked, chewed, or snuffed. Suppose it all made into cigars, one hundred to the pound, it would produce 400.---000,000,000— four hundred billions of cigars ! These cigars at the usual length—four inches—if joined together, would form one continuous cigar 25,252,520 miles long, which would encircle the earth more than one thousand times. Cut up into equal pieces, 240,000 miles in length, there would be over one thousand cigars which would extend from the centre of the earth to the centre of the moon. Put these cigars into boxes 10 inches long, 4 inches wide and three inches high—HJo to the box—it would require 4,000.000,000 boxes. Pile up these boxes in a solid mass, and they would occupy a space of 294,444,444 —two hundred and ninety-four million cubic feet! If piled up 20 feet high, they would cover a farm of 338 acres, and if laid side by...

THE TEAR. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

THE TEAR. OSCAR O. HUGHAN. Ti« hour of midnight is tlie hour to sleep; The hour of morning is the hour to pray ; The hour of twilight is the time to weep The heart's deep bitterness in tears away. My mother, when I left thee, long ago, I saw a tear-drop from its fountains start; And down thy failed cheek, in silence, flow The overgushings of a broken heart. How eloquent tliat tear ! it seemed to say, Though unregarded, " Do not leave me now, — Years creep upon me, and my hair is grny, Aud Care's doep impress sits upon my brow. " Think ! think, how sad, how lone my hours will be When thou nrt wandering o'er tho boundless main; Smiling with the smile I love to see, But in whose warmth I may not live again. " If thou but know what tears, what 6ighs will start, When I behold my cherished idol flown, Thou couldst not thus in thoughtlessness depart, And leave me tottering o'er the grave alone." If I had loved thee with as deep a love As I have lain upon a stranger's shrine, We ne'er had p...

Dean Swift and the Cobbler. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

Dean Swift and the Cobbler. It happened that the Dean was one day passing through Patrick's Close, when he espied a cobbler hard at work in his stall. Poor Crispin, though half naked, was singing away- like a lark, and hammering at the heel of an old shoe with an apparent lightness of heart that astonished the Dean, when he contemplated the merry wretch's obvious misery. " Friend," said the Dean, pausing in his walk at the stall, and addressing him, ''youseem to be very poor; but then you seem to be very merry." " It's not mirth, sir," replied the cobbler—" I'm singin' for the children in the cellar below." "How is that?" asked the Dean; "I don't understand you." " Why, sir," said the man, " whenever the poor things are hungry, and have nothing to cat, I sing droll songs for them, in order to make them forget the hunger." " What family have you ?" " Not many, sir—only twelve or thirteen,or so —but plase God, there's a good time comin'— Nelly, sir, has her gifts —and, between you and...

Be Ye Perfect as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855

Be Ye Perfect as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect. The human soul scorns any lower aim. Beggars as we are, we remember ns of our divine lineage ! Now let us count tho costs. We have each of us. individually, in regard to our organic health or harmonious expression of our souls in our bodies, and all of us collectively, in the wise ordering of our social relations, our organization of labor and evolution of harmonies from nature; the same problem to solve, the same conquest to effect, and the same ends of unity to attain, that God has to solve, to conquer, and to attain, in the life of the universe : namely, to give those loves or passions in which the rays of the Divine Spiritual Sun are individualized and refracted in us, as the rays of the physical sun arc individualized and refracted in the varied colors of the crystal, the shell, the flower, or the bird; that form, order, and surface appropriate to their essence, and necessary to their harmonious effect. We must co-oper...
