IMPROVING OUR SOCIAL CONDITION. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

IMPROVING OUR SOCIAL CONDITION. no 11 San Luis Obispo, Feb. 9, 1855. Col. Warren: It is clear to be seen, that if our legislature were to grant us, in addition to a charter, a respectable donation to aid us in establishing our Female Emigrant Society, that the money would only be loaned, and at good interest. As soon as each lonely squatter* or bachelor farmer, miner, merchant or trader, were provided with suitable help-mates, new life and ambition would be instilled into every bosom, and avenue of trade and industry—instead of a transient and restless population, we would have permanent settlers —our thousands of bachelor halls would soon be converted into sweet homes, with all the enjoyments of social life. Then, the money spent in sinks of sin and dissipation, would be husbanded, and laid out for useful purposes —not only increasing, by several fold, the property now taxed, but hundreds of quarter-sections over which grizzlies now roam, would soon become the residence of happy fa...

MILLET FOR SOILING OR FODDER [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

MILLET FOR SOILING OR FODDER The Country Gentleman publishes the following article on this subject, from a correspondent at Wihninton. Del.: I have seen frequent recommendations to sow Indian corn for boiling. I have tried it several times, but I have always found that my cattle would not eat it when they had other food, and that my cows invariably failed in their milk when soiled with it. For this purpose and for dry fodder, I prefer Millet by far. The latter may be sowed, in our latitude, fiom the first of May to the last of June. If sown during a dry spell, the seed will remain uninjured in the ground until a sufficient quantity of rain has fallen to make it shoot up. It is excellent as green food for cows, and first rate dry fodder for horses and for all kinds of cattle. The quantity of seed should be from twenty to twenty-eight quarts per acre, according to the condition of the soil. It is apt to grow coarse when sowed too thin on rich ground. Plow and harrow, then sow, cover w...

DEEP PLOWING AND LARGE CROPS [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

DEEP PLOWING AND LARGE CROPS The following extract from the address of Thomas Allen, of St. Louis, before the Franklin County Agricultural Society, Missouri, furnishes a strong proof of the benefits of deep plowing and thorough pulverization,—a mode of treatment which is doubtless specially applicable to the deep soils of the West. As for stirring the soil in a dry season proving detrimental to the crop, we could cite manj T instances in proof of its great advantages, provided it is thoroughly and efficiently done —if superficial and imperfect, it may be of little use, and we have known it under peculiar circumstances to prove injurious. We mention here but a single case of the beneficial results of thorough and constant pulverization, during the past unprecedently dry summer. A nurseryman in Western New York who has been remarkably successful in the growth of his young trees, which did not appear to be retarded in the slightest degree through the late intense drouth, informed us th...

Banks that will Always Pay. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Banks that will Always Pay. Amid the convulsions that rend every interest and shake confidence in all our institutions and business operations, it is the duty of all our citizens to look calmly around and make such an arrangement in their own plans as shall conduce not only to their present safety but to their future and permanent good ; and in so doing they will greatly subserve the good of all. Revolutions and convulsions are not "only evil and that continually," but often great good results from what appeared as only evil; that which seems a curse, often proves a " blessing in disguise." The calamities that have fallen upon this city, and upon all our cities, and in fact upon all the State, by the suspension of some of our largest Banking and Express houses, have shaken the faith of tens of thousands of men in their safety, and the consequence is a want of confidence in finding security except that each man will become bis own bmker. This had notought to be. Confidence begets con...

Crucify Him! Crucify Him!! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Crucify Him! Crucify Him!! How readily does the venomed tongue hurl forth its curses upon those whom the blight of sudden misfortune reaches. It matters not how great the fall, how dire the calamity ; it matters not how keenly the victim of misfortune suffers, or how innocently ; the first to assail will be those that have been nursed in the bosom, or fed at the table. It is sure to be those who have best enjoyed the bounty of the sunny days. But now that they have gone and the glory has departed, those that have been warmed into life upon the bosom of confidence and trust, become as the poisoned adder, ready to send forth the forked tongue whose fangs deal the death blow. The alarm, distrust and panic of the past few days has given those who have any desire to study character, an opportunity to notice the readiness with which the heartless assail those who in common parlance are classed as bankrupts; but whose misfortunes are in a measure the result of circumstances beyond human co...

Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Obituary. Death will ever be an unwelcome visitant in the abode of man, come in what form it may ; and although we have been taught from early childhood that death is the "common lot of mortals," and we see the work going on in our midst from day to day, cutting down loved ones from among r.s, taking here tho innocent babe of early promise, and there the youth of bright hopes, striking down another just entering manhood, and again entering the homes where cluster the holiest ties, and leaving a blank never again to be filled on earth ; even when we see all this day bj f day, we do not, cannot realise the full truth until it comes near and strikes down those we knew and love and meet from day to day as kindred and friends. Death is terrible, come when or where it may, for it sunders human ties and rends human affections. Death is and will bean unwelcome messenger even, but its sharp stings are less felt when in the course of nature we see it approaching and know it will come on when ...

Flowers! Bright Flowers! " I walk among the plants and flowers: . The air is charged with sweets; I live, as this Arabian gale My fainting spirit greets."— Tappan. Reader, would you forget the cares and anxieties, the trials and disappointments that now make a mark on your brow and place a heavy weight upon your spirits, depriving you of your cheerfulness and robbing you of health—go " walk among the plants and flowers," as we have done this day ; go see how beautiful earth can be made; go examine the bright petals of those fragrant gems that adorn their favorite homes; go breathe the atmosphere, that is far better than warehouses and counting rooms; go look upon their shining foliage, far more beautiful than even the shining ore of the banker's vaults; go breathe the atmosphere of these gems, forgetting the cares and sorrows incident to the picsent peculiar times, that surround those who live with the multitude; go and live awhile with nature and nature's God, and you will go back ...

Legal Fences, &c. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Legal Fences, &c. Sonoma, Feb. 18, 18, r )5. Messrs. Editors: As you are the acknowledged championß of the fanners and cultivators of California, giving up a large portion of your time, the columns of your paper, and your valuable information to them and their interests. I beg of you to use all your influence with the members of the present Legislature, to have some just law passed on the subject of fencing, and also relating to stock of all kinds, running at large. The present law in regard to fences, is ridiculous— the fence, to be a lawful one, must be capable of excluding—for the fact of its being broken down is taken as evidence of the fence not being a proper one, or it could not be broken. The farmers in this valley suffered so much last season from animals at large, that, in self-de-fence, they were compelled to kill or lose their entire crop. I myself had a small lot of grain in, and would have been perfectly satisfied to have divided on the square with the hog ...

Politics at the State Fair. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Politics at the State Fair. Few of our immediate readers need be told, that with the usual outside " shows," and mountebank exhibitions, we also had the politicians out, in force, at out State Fair; and during every day and night, political meetings and political speeches were in full blast, even in the hall advertised by the State Agricultural Society for the evening meetings of members and visitors, and the quiet discussion of highly interesting professional questions. We desire to speak calmly and prudently of this insult to the agricultural interest. But we cannot pass it by in silence —nor fail to call upon the Agricultural Press of the Union, £o denounce the usurpation, and protest against the precedent sought to be established at our expense. It has been a principle, with our editors, and the officers of our Societies, to steer clear of political questions. But we need not blink this question ; nor is there any call for us to be mealymouthed in dealing with it. What has the G...

Horticultural Department. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Horticultural Department. American Apples.—lt is conceded that the best apples in the world are produced in the United States; and that the best winter apples grow north of 38 deg. north latitude. Within a few years past, several thousand barrels of fresh apples have been shipped from New York to Liverpool and London, at highly remunerative prices, the best quality, in good condition, bringing from $8 to $10 a barrel, and in some instances, even $20 a barrel. The charges for freight, by clipper ships, are from thirty to fifty cents a barrel, and by steamer from two to three dollars. The best varieties for shipping, are the Newtown Pippin, Baldwin, Esopus Spitzenburg Tompkins County King. Lady Apple, and Jted Canada. There are probably other sorts of hardy apples, not yet tried, which would succeed well. A Premium Orchard. —The Oneida County Agricultural Society awarded a premium of $15 to J. Talcott, of Home. N.

The Argan Tree. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

The Argan Tree. The following letter, descriptive of the Argan tree, by the British Acting Vice Consul at Mogadore. will be read with interest. The tree is valuable in dry countries as furnishing what is there much wanted, a supply of fbod for cattle in seasons of drought. The Argan tree grows more or less throughout the Statesof Western Barbary.but principally in the province of Haha, and south of this town. The soil on which it is found is light, sandy, and very stony. It is usually found upon the hills, which are barren of all else, and where irrigation is impossible. I should imagine from the appearance of some of the trees, that they are from one to two hundred years old ; and a remarkably large one in this neighborhood, I should say, is at least three hundred. This tree measures round the trunk twenty-six feet; at the height of three feet, it branches off, (one of them measures eleven feet near the trunk ;) these branches rest upon the pound at about fifteen feet from the trun...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

Happiness.—An eminent modern writer beautifully says: "The foundation of domestic happi-' ness is faith in the virtue of a woman. The foundation of political happiness, is confidence in the integrity of a man. The foundation of all happiness, temporal or eternal, is reliance on the goodness of God. A Ready Application.—A mother admonishing her son—a lad some seven years of age—told him that he should never defer till to-morrow what he could do to-day. The little urchin replied—" Then, mother, let's eat the rest of the pi urn-pudding to-night."
