Potatoes—Kew mode of CultuM .- [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Potatoes—Kew mode of CultuM .- Mr . S . a . Sbipman , of Hadley township !»» t week brought us a lot of Pinkeye potatoes which he recommended as being of a superior quality , their excellence being the result not of the kind of potatoes hut the manner in which they were raised . We » e , nt them to our obliging host of the Mansion house , who had them duly served up , boiled , th . next morning for breakfast . Wt feund upon trying them , that they were superior to any potato * we had tasted this season ; most of them had burst open , were very dry , mealy and very fine grained ; they were entirely free from all the harshness found in most potatoes , and would almost melt like . butter in . the . mouth . Mr . Shipraan informed us that he planted them in the usual manner , then covered them to the depth of about six incites with straw ; after this BO further cultivation was required—the straw kept down the weeds , and the potatoes was not disturbed until they were dug .

Be kind to thy Wife . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Be kind to thy Wife . Be gentle with thy Wife ; Husband , be gentle with thy Wife , Affeotionato and kind ; And bless her with a blissful life , A happy frame of mind . You know not all that depth of lore , So constant and so true ; Or how her loving heart doth move In sympathy for you . When health and fortune on you smile , And joy your heart doth thrill , Her presence every care beguiles , And makes it sweeter still . And when dark clouds shall hover near , And terror seize the heart , She will your drooping spirits cheer , And bid it all depart . In sickness , too , she s ever there , To soothe the aching brow , And all your grief and pain to share—She loves you even now . Throughout the changing scenes of life , That love will never die ; She s ever true , a darling Wife , A seraph from on high . Oh try , then , Husband , to repay The debt of love you owe , And strive to render sweet each day , For one that loves you so .

FREXCH CHESTNUT —This tree is now bearing aud producing well on the south side of Long Island , on the Hudson , and in Berk s county , Penn .

General Views . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

General Views . It is a peculiar and important feature in our social and political institutions , that agriculture establishes no distinct class in the community . It is not made , as in oriental countries , an hereditary employment , which fathers and sons must follow from generation to generation ; nor is the approach to it , as in still more favored countries , met by royal restrictions , which cannot be easily passed . With us it establishes no caste ; it is protected by no bounties ; it is hampered by no restrictions . The poor may live by it , and the rich may play at it . The industrious man may draw from it both wealth and pleasure , and the idler may even , for a time , fancy himself useful in the world while the implement of toil is held in his enfeebled fingers . It is a neutral ground , where the politician may forget his differences , the divine his polemics , and the lawyer his precedents . .. Yet , while it invites all to its domain , it demands a certain kind of tale...

• r - m Wm ^ j • * , r « < ; - Come to Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

• r - m Wm ^ j • * , r « &amp;lt; ; - Come to Illinois . We have before said that there was never a time in the history of • IHinoLs more favorable for emigrants from the east to settle within her borders , than the present . When we thus speak , we mean the emigration of persons to our state , who belong to the laboring classes , farmers , mechanics , laborers . We -have enough of speculators , whose simple object is to monopolize the best lands , and mr . ke fortunes out of the advance in their value . There is a class of good emigrants , who pass through our state and locate in Iowa , Wisconsin and Minesota , on the mistaken supposition , that , possessing little means , they can make most of it by entering lands in those states or territory . , So far as one point is aimed at ,- —to obtain lands for $ 1 25 cts . an neve , or even less by procuring land warrants—such emigrants are un questionably right in their judgment ; for , in Illinois , there arc but few lands reinainl n...

Agricultural Education . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

Agricultural Education . We hare no pride of authorship that would induce us to forego the tise cf an article furnished by another hand , by substituting one of our own , on this , as we deem , important subject . Hon . EDWARD BATES , of St . Louis , delivered an address at the last state fair in Missouri . There is a plainness of manner , and an honesty of purpose , in every public act of this distinguished citizen , that has always commanded our admiration . He may possibly be mistaken , —not • often , however , —but he gives his opinions upon important topics with an earnestness and sincerity that lias ever secured for him genera ! respect . — He would elevate the profession of agriculture and those engaged in it to the position where they justly beio : ; g—to a position fully as important as that occupied by any other profession . On the occasion to which we have referred , Mr . BATES said : — There was a tirn « when a common error prevailed , to the eifect that no learning is n...

SE 2 JK ^ - • Talne of Fruit . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

SE 2 JK ^ - • Talne of Fruit . We find in a New York paper , a letter from Toledo , Ohio , from which we make the following extract : V Much his been said of the sickness uniformly pervading the West , and these unfavorable reports have doubtless deterred thousands from settling upon and cultivating its rich fields . The inhabitants of every new country are liable to bilious disorders , and these prevail to a greater extent in countries possessing a soil remarkably rich and susceptible of a high state of cultivation than in those which are older and less productive . The past season has been a very wet one ; and these complaints have spread over a larger « xtent of territory than usual , but are not confined &amp;lt; othe West . Indeed , these diseases rarely prove fatal , and the percentage of deaths to the entire population of this State is much below that of Massachusetts , Connecticut , New York , Rhode Island , or almoit any of the Southern States . Writers upon that subjec...

The Weather . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

The Weather . Still continues cold , and the cold is almost without abatement . We are becoming so accustomed to a low state of the mercury , that we attend to our usual business without regarding it . We have never known so long a time of continued cold weather . — The oldest inhabitant has no recollection of the like . Near Cincinnati , where a meteorological journal has been kept for a great number of years , the mercury has . never sunk in the time but 14 degrees below zero until the present winter , when it went down to 21 degrees . The season , however , has been good , and remains so , for getting about and doing outdoor work , making rails , getting wood for next season , going to market , and doing up all the jobs which can be done , so that when spring opens every man will be ready to attend to spring work .

Alabama Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

Alabama Agriculture . Some months since Hon . C . C . Clay , jr ., delivered before a Horticultural Society in Alabama State , an address , from which we take the following extract , as showing the results of the present system of growing cotton in that State : We need net to , for proof , to Georgia or Sauth Carolina , which , for tarn * years , were almost the only cultivator * of cotton , and as late at 1820 , grew more than half the « ntira crop of the Union , but now produce enly about one-fifth of it . I can show you , with sorrow , in the older portions of Alabama , and in my native county of Madison , the sad memorials of the artless and * xhausting culture of cotton . Our small planters , after taking the cream off their lands , unable to restore them by rest , manures , or otherwist , are goisg further West and South , in searah of other virgin lands , which they may and will despoil and impoverish in like manner . Our wealthier planters , with greater means and no more sk...

„ Fraud in Fruit T ^ ::, [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

„ Fraud in Fruit T ^ ::, In our hut number , we referred to the danger of being deceived in purchasing fruit trees of itinerating ptJkrs . Most of these pedlars profess to be agents of Rochester nurseries . Mr . Barry , late editor of the n &amp;lt;&amp;gt; rl n ;! , iUrht , end of the firm of Elwanger J ; i &amp;gt; arvy , engaged extensively in the nursery business at Rochester , has thus referred to this matter in the publication named : — The tmrle in trees has grown to be so extensive , that a large number of persons are attracted to it who are mere dealers , buyers and sellers ; but on the other hand many are notoriously dishonest , and are perpetrating gross frauds upon the community . l ? y deceitful means they procure the catalogues of respectable concerns , and represent themselves as agents authorized to solicit orders . They obtain them and then fill them with whatever trash they can buy cheapest . People every where should be on their guard . A writsr in the...

The Cultivation of the Grasses . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

The Cultivation of the Grasses . Gov . WRIGHT , of Indiana , as an agriculturist , is eminently practical . He maintains that the farmers of the United States neglect , too generally , the cultivation of the grasses for their own benefit and that of the country . In our own locality it is the received opinion that the cultivation of grasses for stock is more profitable than the cultivation of corn for that purpose . — Some of our best farmers- rely mainly on grass and hay for their stock , and are satisfied with the results . The cultivation of the grasses is increasing largely . Agricultural machinery , the mower and the horse-rake , render what was once a work of much labor , now comparatively a light performance . We condense some of the remarks of Gov . Wright , at the last Uow York state fair , on this subject , as worthy of the consideration cf cur readers . He stated that no crop approached so near a spontaneous yield , and none yielded so large a profit . The hay crop of the...

Pears . * * [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

Pears . * * The disease ,- blight , which affected our pear trees , a few years since , has discouraged many of our people from further attempts at their cultivation . This should not be ; The pear is a most delicious and healthy fruit . Diseases which affect particular kinds often pass away and do not return for years . We see that in different parts of Ohio , where pear trees were formerly affected by blight , they are now cultivated with success , and this cultivation is rapidly extending . Pears are more plentiful in the markets , and every variety is of great excellence . Last fall there was a fruit convention at Burlington , on the Mississippi , which was attended by many distinguished fruit growers of the east , and the pears there exhibited , which were in great numbers , were pronounced to be the finest specimens ever seen in the . country . They were larger , fairer , better , than the same varieties produced in the east ; and the trees being examined , they were decided t...

Geological Surveys . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

Geological Surveys . v \ e are glad to learn that there wdl soon be published a report from the State Geologist , of the Surveys of the State , as far as he has progressed . This is loudly called for and the demands of the public in this respect , we hope will be speedily satisfied . The surveys in Southern Illinois have resulted in valuable discoveries of minerals of various kinds , and individuals have and are likely to obtain knowledge of these discoveries , and to secure their benefits , when these should be extended to all our people . Reports are rife that purchases of lands have been made by speculators , where minerals are supposed to exist , the occupants of which did not know their value . Shrewd men , who have such objects in view , have a thousand ways of ascertaining snch discoveries , and securing the benefits which should be open to all our people—for all our people pay for the surveys . We regret that we cannot state when this report will be published ; but wo hope i...

Country Bcsidsnees . - [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

Country Bcsidsnees . - The time has now arrived when our farmers , if they do not intend to be behind the times , must pay attention to the ornamenting and making pleasant the grounds about their residences . The time has gone by when the back parts of houses can be in the most exposed portions towards the road ; the stable in front of the dwelling , and all kinds of broken wagons , plows , legs , weeds , chips , ash heaps , aud everything conceivable , lying about a dwelling , without drawing observation and causing remark . Such things are not common now , but were some years ago . Steadily has improvement gone forward , and numerous farms now have comfortable houses , fine yards , neat outhouses , well cared for gardens , and are beautiful and desirable homes . We like to see these improvements . It shows that the people have become attached to the soil , love their homes , are good citizens , thrifty farmers , aud that their families have taste and intelligence . No man can pass...
