Tobacco and Opium . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Tobacco and Opium . Tobacco is the most widely known of that class of indulgences called narcotic and for which there is such » prevailing taste among onen . Whether instinctive or derived from artificial modes of life , the fact remains that the craving exists , and that man has sought out the means to gratify it without preconcert or knowledge of others , or by acquired influence beyond his own sphereTobacco is only equalled by Tea in its universal use . Columbus found it in America in the year of his great discovery in the form of cigars . From thence it was taken to Spain and France , and was introduced into England by those celebrated cavaliers and gentlemen Drake and Raleigh about the Year A . D . 1535 . It met in England with some obstacles , the pedantic king said it was a custo me loathsome to the eye , harmfull to the brain , and in the black stinking fume thereof nearest resembling the horrible sty . gean smoke , of the pit that is bottomless . In Turkey and Persia their ...

Fall of the "Charter Oak . " , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Fall of the Charter Oak . , This vsnerable tree , connected with , inter- ; esting historical recollections , fell in the late gale ( Aug . 21 ) which swept over a largo : part of New England and the Middle States . ; This oak stood on the old Myttys place in Hartford . About the . year 1650 , Gov . Myttys made arrangements to remove from England to the colonies aind sent his steward to provide for him a residence in Hartford . He found a venerable oak tree upon the lot which he purchased , and which seemed to possess a peculiar sanotlity in the eyes of the natives . They said that it tow ered above the forest arid had been the guide of their ancestors for centuries . It was spared at their solicitation , and has fallen after the whole aboriginal race has passed away from the State . It had no doubt been the monarch of the forest for at least twenty centuries , and finally fell by natural decay . Three years ago . some lads made a fire in its hollow trunk , which burnt out . the rot...

Hedge Eenees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Hedge Eenees . Can the osage orange be set in hedgerows in the fall ? We have often heard this question asked . Our springs are short , —too short to accomplish all desirable spring work . Thence it is , that there will be great advantage if some of the work set for spring can be done in the fall ; because in the fall , there is , annually , some leisure time with our farmers . Butjthis is not . answering the question—can : the . osage orange be set out for . hedges in the fall ?— -The question is satisfactorily answered , in the annexed communication , which , we copy from the Valley .

Cnltivation of the Grape in the Baited States . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Cnltivation of the Grape in the Baited States . Dr . GUMPBEIT , a German , has recently published a work on this subject . He explains the causes of the failure of the manifold attempts to domesticate the European grapes in the United States by comparative thermometrical and hygrometrical statements from which it appears that the ill success is attributable to the greater proportion of moisture to which the vine is subjected here ; while the temperature is more favorable in Philadelphia , Cincinnati or St . Louis than in Paris , Dresden or Prague . The Catawba grape , an indigenous variety , is now extensively cultivated in the West and Southwest , and the Catawba wine bids fair to become an important article of commerceIn 1854 the vineyards comprised less than three thousand acres , the greater proportion of which was in the vicinity of Cincinnati from thence the grape culture has since spread , along both banks of the Ohio , to Pittsburgh and Cairo , and in a southerly direction t...

Of the Moon . In the course of the last month there was a meeting of aavans for the advancement j > f science , at Albany . A good many curious subjects were discussed and new discoveries announced at this meeting . The moon was one of the subject ! -jf discussion . Prof . ALEXANDER discoursed of the relative age of different portions of its surface . He exhibited diagrams of the moon , in comparison with the Eastern Hemisphere of the earth , and went on to show that the moon had undoubtedly been subjected to convulsions similar to those which had occurred on the earth , the white objects which are Observed upen its disk being evidently the matter thrown up by the convulsions which had disturbed its surface . Prof . MITCHEL inquired if Mr . A . had observed upon the moon s surface appearances like a lake and a river . Professor ALEXANDER had observed them ; they were once fluid , but are now cooled lava .. Prof . MITCHEL noted the peculiar appearance of the river , which ...

Cultivation of Fruit . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Cultivation of Fruit . Tha season is now at baud for the planting out of fruit trees . Little that is new can be said on this subject . But old facts can be with advantage brought to mind , can be dwelt upon , and can be impressed upon the . attention of the reader . All love fruit . It is healthful ; it is desirable ; and its cultivation can be made a source of profit as well as pleasure . In these days , it would be regarded as strange , indeed , if any man opening a new farm did not take measures to plant out an orchard . It is demonstrated beyond a doubt that the West is second to no country in the production of fine fruit , and especially of apples . Fruit growers from the East , who attended the Fruit Growers Conventions at Chicago and Burlington , admitted , without question , this fact . The opening of new farms in Illinois , and the extension of old farms , in every quarter of the State , is beyond any precedent , even in this progressive age , and almost beyond estimation ...

Valuable Raspberry Patch . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Valuable Raspberry Patch . Mr . Samuel Seymour , of Norwalk , Conn , raises raspberries for market . This is his process : His land is on a stony side hill ; the large s tones were removed from the surface ; land well manured ; stalks planted in the fall of 52 , four in a hill ; hills four feet apart ; the stalks were three feet high ; they were immediately laid down and covered with one or two inches of soil . 1 ^ the spring , just as peaches were in bloom , they were uncovered and tied to small stakes ; the ground was kept clean and in good order , and the plants cultivated as corn . There was five-eighths of an acre in the piece of land thus occupied . The plants yielded , the first year , 440 pint baskets ; the second year , 226 baskets ; the third year , 5 , 026 baskets , worth at the rate of $ 658 40 per acre . Of the production the present year we have not a full estimate . — On the 24 th July , 4 , 600 pints had been gathered , and still the gathering was going on . The vari...

Poultry . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Poultry . According to the census of 1850 , the value of the poultry in Illinois was estimated at $ 330 , 968 . Large as this sum is , the value of the poultry now in this state will now double the amount . Probably ninetenths of this estimate is based on the returns of the dunghill fowl—the remainder on the tnrkies , geese and ducks . The common dunghill fowl can be raised on our farms , generally , with little cost . — There is always plenty of feed about . But they should be provided with places for laying and raising chickens . In winter all varieties ot hens will lay if provided with proper food , warm shed , and plenty of lime , ashes and occasionally fresh meat . The care taken of the Shanghais , Brama Pootras and other choice fowls , causes them to lay through winter . One family within our acquaintance sold $ 30 worth of Shanghai eggs last winter . Eggs are of sufficient value in the winter months to justify the best care of fowls . •

English Durham Stock . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

English Durham Stock . The value of the improved Short Horn Durham stock is proved by the fact , that in England , where this stock is most sought , the supply of valuable , first class animals is much less than several years ago . Early in the month of July , the Royal Agricultural Society of England held its Fair at Chelmsford , thirty miles from London . The best stock of England was there on exhibition . An American stock breeder , R . ATCHIESON ALEXANDER , was present . He purchased several animals , at prices one half more than they were a year ago , He says that these high prices are the result of demands for this stock from France and Australia . Mr . ALEXANDER writes to the Ohio Farmer : The number of Short Horns exhibited this year at the Royal Society s Show was seventy- eight , which I believe to i > e considerably leas than usual ; and if we look at . the shape and quality , of the stock , generally , there is a most decided falling off in this sho \ V as com...

Apples for Food . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Apples for Food . Liebig , the eminent physiologist , says : The importance of apples as food has not hitherto been sufficiently estimated in this country , or understood . Besides contributing a large proportion of sugar , mucilage , and other nutritive matter , in the form of food * they contain such a fine combination of vegetable acids , extractive substances , and aromatic principles , with the nutritive matter , as to act powerfully in the capacity of infrigerants , tonics and antispeptics ; and when used freely at the season ot ripeness , by rural laborers and others , they prevent debility , strengthen digestion , correct the pntrifactive tendencies of nitrogeneous food , avert Scurvy , and probably maintain and strengthen the powers of productive labor . The operators of Cornwall consider ri pe apples nearly as nourishing as bread , and more so than potatoes . In the year 1801 , a year of scarcity , apples , instead of being converted into cider , were sold to the poor , an...

Productive Orchards , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Productive Orchards , In a statement made at the Fruit Growers Society of Western New York , Dr . E . W . Sylvester , of Lyons , New York , said : If people do not cultivate and take care of their orchards they cannot expect good fruit from them , or that fruit will bring a good price . I picked from one of my Spitzenberg trees , this year , five barrels . We have forty trees to the acre , that will give us 200 barrels of apples . These apples I sold at one dollar a barrel . and barrels found . My man picked from eight to ten barrels per day , and put them up . The cost then was probably about one shilling per barrel . The total amount therefore , for fruit is § 200 per acre , from which deduct ore shilling per barrel for picking , and you have left , as the profits on one acre , $ 175 . This , I acknowledge , as above the true . estimate as a general thing , but orchards may be brought very nearly to this point under good cultivation . I know some orchards the owners of which , the...

The Fireside Forty Years ago . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

The Fireside Forty Years ago . Wood-piles on the hearth , like wigwams and log-houses , are , as the clearings increase , getting to be matters of history . They are very pleasant things to remember , but on the whole would be , to our more cultivated substitutes , in these times , very uncomfortable to depend on , for house warming in a New England winter . I trust I am not ungrateful in what I am saying . Many a pleasant evening have I danced with the boys and girls of the village by the light of the blazing fire on the kitchen hearth . Many a time have I sat on a stool in the chimney corner , and looked up and seen the stars twinkling through the broad flue . Well do I remember the high-backed settle , which was as essential then in a kitchen , as a sofa is now to the parlor . There may be readers of the Farmer so ignorant as not to know what a settle is ! It is a high-backed wooden bench , long enough tor four or five ,, or occasionally , six or eight boys and girls to sit on , ...

Demonstration of Foreign Animals . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1856

Demonstration of Foreign Animals . Those who have of late years familiarized themselves with the Department news of Washington , or rather of that portion devoted to . the encouragement o ? farming and tha materials for manufactures , have doubtless come to the conclusion that Government deserves not a little praise for its efforts in tins direction . Much has undoubtedly been done for the industrial benefit of the country , and our dSerent agricultural and scif-ntifis soMeuesar- * entitled to even more praise for their effor ;? . But there is one branch . vhich . despite all that hr . s been dons , may be said to be as yet comparatively neglected . We refer to the in trod notion and bringing into general use , of animals as yet unknown among us . It is somewhat remarkable tl . at though we live in a comparatively peaceful age and oae in which the arts of peace arj presumed to be making incredible advances—those of agriculture of course included -we are still very far behind the old...

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS . CANVASS BAGS FOR HAMS . —The following directions are Irom the Louisville Journal : —The hams should be well tried and fmoked . If they are to be put up for family use , bags made of heavy cotton cloth , the shape of the ham , but something larger , with a dravung string at the large end , are the most convenient , and may be used several years if taken care of . Cover the haras neatly with brown paper and drop them into the bag—draw up the end and hang them up in a cool , airy house . Or they may be covered with the paper as directed , and the . cloth cut to suit the size and form of the hams , and then sewed firmly around them ; then prepare a box or large tub of white-wash , made of commou lime , about the consistency of cream , and dip the hams into this ; then hang them up and dry them . If a neater article is required for market , dip them into a wash made of whiting , to which should be added sufficient thin paste to set the whiting ; to this add chrome ...
