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

THE PAST. // pastato c pafsnto, c per lempre '. —AZELIo. The Prist is past! with many a hopeful morrow I Its errors and its good works live with God; The agony is o'er of joy or sorrow ; The flowers lie dead along the path we trod. The pa§t is past 1 in solemn silence faking, Alike, the sunny and the rainy day j On tho life altar of tho fond heart hrenking Full many an idol built on feet of clay. The past is past I and our young selves depnrted Upon the flashing whirl of those fleet years ; Its lessons leave us sadder, stronger hearted, More slow to live, le6s prodigal of tears. The past is past I and knowledge taught suspicion To dim the spirit with its foul, cold shine : For many a base and dark thing finds admission Amid the wisdom learnt from life and time. The past is past I and in thnt twilight valley Dwell slow repentnnce and the vain regret; Fears for the future from those shadows sally, And hang around the path belore us yet. Tho past is past I and ah I how few deplore it, ...

A Hero and a Bully; OR, THE TRIAL OF COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 1 March 1855

A Hero and a Bully; OR, THE TRIAL OF COURAGE. One evening;, a short time after the battle of Fontenoy, (1745,) a group of the king's bodyguard was congregated near the Latona basin, at Versailles, listening to two of their number discussing a subject which at that period was rarely' a matter of controversy in military circles. . "Refuse a duel after a public affront!" exclaimed the tallest of the speakers, whose bronzed features were rendered almost ferocious by the thick-red moustache; "itis a stain that all the waters of the deluge would not wash away." "I repeat. Monsiur de Malatour," replied the other in a calm, polite tone, h that there is more true courage in refusing than'in accepting a duel. What is more common than to yield to passion, envy or vengeance; and what more rare than to resist them ? Therefore it is a virtue when exhibited at the price of public opinion ; for what costs nothing is esteemed as worth nothing." " A marvel! Monsieur d'Argentre, 1 would advise, if eve...

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

Fixing the Attention. What is commonly called abstraction in study. is nothing more than having the attention 9o completely occupied with the subject in hand, that the mind takes notice of nothing without itself. One of the greatest minds which this or any other country ever produced, has been known to be so engrossed in thinking .on a particular subject, that his horse had waded through the corner of a pond; yet, though the water covered the saddle, he was wholly insensible to the cause of his being wet. I mention this, not to recommend such an abstraction, but to show that he who has his attention fixed, and the power of fixing it when he pleases, will be successful in study. Why does the boy who has a*large sum upon his slate, scowl, and rub out, and begin again, and grow discouraged ? Because he has not learned to govern his attention. He was going on well, when some new thought floated into his mind, or some new object caught his eye, and he lost the train of calculation. Why h...

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

PENCILLINGS. MRS. E. A. W. In No. 6 of our Journal, we copied from the Sacramento Union, a sketch from the pen of this gifted writer. In haste, and purely unintentional, our compositors omitted to give the initials of the writer. For this ommission we hope forgiveness. To-day we have the pleasure of laying before our readers an Original Sketch, written for the Farmer. We feel highly gratified that we are able to add so talented a correspondent to the Ladies' Department of our Journal. The early sunshine of a bright, beautiful, morning is pouring a golden flood upon the hill-tops, and though the valleys still lie in the shadow, they smile happily in the promise of tho bright day that is to follow. j February in California, may fearlessly throw j down the gauntlet with any of the spring months jin the Atlantic States; even now the spring is ' stirring through her veins, though snow is on her brow; an unseen hand is carpetting the vales with green and tender foliage—the delicate germ i...

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

Valuable Recipes. To Dry Pumpkin,—Cut it round horizontally ' in tolerably thin slices, peel them and hang them on a line in a warm room. When perfectly dry, put them away for use. When you wish to use it, put it to soak over night; next day pour off the water, put on fresh water, stew and use it as usual, &c. Another, and as some think, a much better way, is to boil and sift the pumpkin, then spread it out thin in tin plates, and dry hard in a warm oven. Prepared in this wise it keeps good all the year round, and a little piece boiled up in milk will make a batch of pies. To Remove Wine or Fruit Stains from Linen, —If the stain be of long continuance it may be removed by rubbing the soiled parts, on each side, with yellow soap; then lay on a mixture of starch in cold water, very thick ; rub it well in, and expose the linen to the sun and air till the stain comes out. If not removed in three or four days, rub that off and renew the process. When it is dry, it may be spri...

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

FROM THE EAST. The Vchzuelnn Government has put into execution its design of taking possession of the Bird Islands, a. cluster of guano-covered rocks in the Caribbean Sea. The invading force drove away two American vessels that were taking in cargoes, one of which lias arrived at Boston. AH the Americans on the islands embarked on board the vessels. The sloop-of-war Falmouth, at St. Thomas oh the 6th of Jan., would sail in a few days to watch the movements of the Venezuelans. It is stated that the proposal on the part of tho Allies, which induced Prince Gort-chakoff to ask for time to consult his Court, embraced the destruction Of the Russian fortress of Jomael, on the Danube; the construction of a neutral fortress in lieu of it. to be garrisoned by the Five Powers, and the demolition of the forts "and arsenal of Sebas- topol. The Hon. Luther Severance, late U. S. Minister at Honolulu, and the projector and for a long time editor of the ''Kennebec Journal." died recently at his resi...

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

FROM THE SOUTH. Kern River Mines. —The steamer America arrived here on the 241h ult., bringing later intelligence from the Kern River Mines, fully corroborating the previous repoits of the extensive discovery oi gold in that region. As the number of 1 Winers increase the news becomes more favorable as to their extent and richness. A few of the miners had returned to Los Angeles to buy goods, bringing with them plenty of dust. Los Angeles and vicinity are comparatively deserted, the excitement being as great as that of '49. The average yield of the mines is from $8 to $20 per day, and big strikes of daily occurence; another statement is, from $5 to $8 per day. The richest localities found thus far, are high up in the mountain gulches, where the snow at present makes it very difficult to work. Parties have located themselves upon rich claims thus situate, and are awaiting the advent of warm weather to commence operations. A Southern paper speaking of the mines, says | "Although we sti...
