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

Soliloquy of a Loafer. Let's see, where am I? This is—coal I'm laying on. How'd I get here ? (reflects) Yes, I mind now. Was comin' up street—met a wheelbarrow coroin' 'tother way—it was drunk—and one on us fell into the cellar—don't mind which now—guess it must a been me. I'm a nice young man, yes I am —tight! tore ! shot! drunk ! Well, 1 can't help it—'taint my fault—wonder who's fault'tis? Is it Jones'fault? no. Is it my wife's fault? well it isn't. Is it the wheelbarrow's fault? n-0-0. It's whisky's fault. Who's whisky ? Has he a large family ? Got many relations ? All poor I reckon. I think I wont own him any more. I'll cut his acquaintance; I've had that notion for about ten years, and always hated to do it for fear of hurtin' his feelings —I'll do it now—l think liquor's hurtin' me—it's spoilin' my temper. Sometimes I get mad when I'm drunk, and abuse Betz and the Brats—it used to be Lizzie and the children; that's some time ago though, I can just mind it; when I'd come home ...

THE INTERNAL COMMERCE OF THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

THE INTERNAL COMMERCE OF THE WEST. The following interesting expose of the magnitude and importance of the internal trade of the Northern Mississippi Valley is worthy of a careful perusal by the cultivators of the soil. They need not be told that in every article enumerated below, the elements of the soil which conduce to the growth of the crops are annuajfly removed to the amount of hundreds of thousands of tons. We have a soil whose fertility cannot be excelled ; but the experience of thousands of years warns us to cherish our resources for manures, and apply them to the soil before the period of exhaustion shall have been reached —for it is far easier to preserve the fertility of any soil than to restore it when lost. How many of the farmers whose individual harvests have'gone to swell the amount of produce conveyed on the Western riveis and Eastern canals to theseaboerd market, anticipate the time when this productiveness shall cease, and are wise in time? Too man) — far too man...

EXPERIMENTS IN IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

EXPERIMENTS IN IRRIGATION. KII.N DRIED CORN MEAL. Mr. Editor : I have noticed with some interest your late articles on irrigation. More thorough investigations will not only show the great advantages of irrigation, but also that it can be done with spring as well as soft water. Some persons have supposed that the water used must be poured upon the plant, or made to overflow it, or at least overflow the ground; whereas, the water should pass up through the soil by means of capillary attraction, thus supplying moisture in nature's own way, and in nature's own quantity. It is true that showers are beneficial on the leaves occasionally; but the greater portion of the water soaks into the soil, to be returned to the plant as it needs it by the capillary tubes. 1 have a piece of ground of about two acres, on which I have been making some experiments the past season, having a stream of water from a spring passing through it. I plowed the grouud (which was sod) in May last, into lands ten t...

WHAT SHALL BE DONE? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

WHAT SHALL BE DONE? At the late exhibition of the New York State Agricultural Society, the classification of sheep was " Fat Sheep, Long-wooled, Middle-wooled. Merinos, Saxons, Cross-breeds, and Foreign." In the Merino class was entered all the French and Silesian, as well as the crosses between them. The committee of judges on the Merino found themselves in a dilemma, for out of those three breeds they had to decide which was the best. Each breed had its peculiar characteristics, desirable, and valuable, and yet no one combined all these good qualities sufficiently to warrant the important decision of the judges that they were the best. If size was to be regarded, then the French sheep would be entitled to the premiums, for they were much the heaviest of the finc-wooled sheep. If fineness and evenness of wool, then the imported Silesians were ahead; while for hardiness, and for all the practical purposes of the farmers of the country, the Merino would bear the palm. Then, as to the...

The Agriculture of France. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

The Agriculture of France. What makes the Agriculture of France so prosperous? Read the history of her success, look at the picture of her smiling vineyards, her bending orchards, her cultivated lands, her princely gardens, and sketch the history of her renowned grains. The perfection she has attained in her products for the kitchen, has no equal; and when we speak of her Flora, we are refreshed by the perfume that memory recalls of the beautiful. The Agriculture, Horticulture, and Floriculture, of France have been made honorable, aye, noble, by the Government bounties to encourage, public approbation, and rewards, emblems of distinction, and the highest tokens that the soldier of the Imperial Guard can win for bravery and love and devotion to his country, the " Cross of the Legion of Honor," is publicly bestowed upon those who by discoveries and labors advance the interests of Agriculture in France. Agriculture and kindred sciences in France, and England, are esteemed as they shoul...

How to Prevent Wheat from Smut. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

How to Prevent Wheat from Smut. Vine Springs Rancho, Columbia, ) Feb. 28th, 1855. { Gentlemen:'l am much obliged to you for your agricultural journal, which I am much pleased with, and consider it a good paper and one that docs much credit to the State, and shall become one of your subscribers. It would give me pleasure to obtain subscribers for your paper, but I have only miners for neighbors and they take no interest in agriculture, but. on the contrary, appear to think it an antagonistic occupation. I notice in the number sent me (vol. 111., No 7) an article headed "Smutty Wheat." and yoi request the opinions and practical experiments of California agriculturists. Since I began to raise wheat in this country, I have had no opportunity of making any experiment on the subject, for J have seen no smut; but I did not suppose that experiments were necessary, as I thought both the cause and the preventive had been discovered and were well known. Not having the authority with me I canno...

A Worthy Man—Results of Rain, etc. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

A Worthy Man—Results of Rain, etc. Sonoma, March 1, 1855. Messrs. Editohs : As we often hear of accounts of work done in other sections of the State, for which great praise is awarded, I call your attention to the following, and challenge a single man in this or any othqr State to beat it: A gentleman farmer of our county had, from the Ist November last up to the 24th of February, plowed, sowed and harrowed one hundred acres of wheat. He has done all of the work himself, with a team of unbroke California horses. Fifty acres of the land were sod, the other fifty were broken last year. Now. sir, I think this farmer is richly deserving of an especial premium from the State Agricultural Society. The Committee should inspect the work done, and the farmer-like manner in which it is done ; for this purpose he invites them to visit his place. The Committee can inquire for Major llobt. Beck, Sonoma, and they will see the man who has accomplished the above little job. and has not done working...

John A. Sutter. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

John A. Sutter. " d shame, where is thy blush." We have called California the Golden St.ite, the bright and beautiful, the " Eureka" State, and have lauded her to the skies; and for her natural beauties, her agricultural and mineral resources, her bays and rivers, and for the ample means she possesses to make herself great —for all these she deserves a bright and glorious name; but as the sun in all its brightness and glory is often obscured by clouds, and even when cloudless has spots upon its own clear face, so our own Golden State has dark stains made by her base il ingratitude" to her earliest Pioneer and her noblest friend. We believe there is no nation under heaven that would have permitted a benefactor to have suffered as John A. Sutter has suffered. When the discovery of the precious ore was made at Sutter's mill race, and thousands flocked hither, who fed the hungry and clothed the naked and sheltered the houseless? John A. Sutter. The first discovery of gold was upon his o...

Water Works--Plaza--Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

Water Works--Plaza--Sacramento. The Water Works of Sacramento city are very handsomely situated upon, and facing south down, the Levee, What is now needed is to improve the Plaza in front. • We would suggest to the Honorable the Mayor and Council the laying out of the square in front in a style suitable to the position and character of the city. We trust they will not, however, take pattern by the city of San Francisco. It is is always bad enough to see trees and plants die in dry weather, but to see 6uch a collection of "dry bones" as ornament (?) the Bay City,and especially in the rainy season,*is rather piteous. We trust Sacramento will set an examplo that will be worthy of her, when she builds her " Public Garden." A garden can be made, but the maker should understand his business in that work, as well as the architect of any groat public building; for it is a great work to lay out grounds and establish them as they should be for futurity, and this should always be borne in mind...

Business of California. " Wliat din; re.-ult.s from tririiil cnuse* pprinif, WliHt mighty contest! rise from little tliingi- f" A shout review of the business of California takes us back to last summer, w hen a few persons in Marysville were compelled to build a small steamboat to protect themselves from a crushing combination. That accomplished, freights on our shores were reduced to $1 per ton, which caused every up country trader to push his credit and invest all the money he could command to take advantage of so ruinously low freights; this crowded the business of four months into as many days, and of course made a great stir in San Francisco. This was caught hold of (by a too meddling press into business affairs generally', and which is the source of woes unnumbered to the regular merchant of California.) and paraded before the Atlantic community, with all the coloring necessary to make a glowing account of the briskness of trade, without stating the cause of it; this too at a ...

FROM THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

FROM THE EAST. The Mail steamer Sonora arrived at this port on Friday Morning last, with dates from New York to Feb. 5, and from Europe to Jan. 20. Among the passengers was the celebrated actress Miss J. M. Davenport, also Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Booth, as well as a large number of old Californians with their families. The Panama Railroad is said now to be in excellent order, and the cars go from Panama to Aspinwall in three hours. We make a brief summary of the news: An expedition was being organized in New Or-, leans by the Government, for the purpose of securing further information relative to a railroad route to the Pacific. Capt. Pope, with a force of 150 troops, is to proceed to Lanos de Estevada to ascertain whether water is obtainable there by means of Artesian wells. Lieut. G. C. Hunter, late in the command of the U. S. brig Bainbridge. has been dismissed the service by the President, for disobedience of orders. The action of the administration is called unjust and oppressive by...

Why the Farmer should give Heed to the Man of Science. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

Why the Farmer should give Heed to the Man of Science. The following judicious remarks form the conclusion of an able.lecture by Prof. Tuomcy, upon chemistry as applied Ui agriculture: In conclusion, allow me to say one word upon the apparent indifference with which agriculturists, as a body, listen to the teachings of science. Rural pursuits are far less favorable to speculative states of mind than those of the manufacturer, and hence whilst the latter has pressed chemistry into his service, the cultivator of the soil is too often contented to pursue his own chance-directed processes unaided by the light of science. This unnatural divorcement of science and agriculture has often arisen from not distinguishing between agriculture as a science and agriculture as an art. The man of science investigates, one department, and the cultivator of the soil . practices the other. Odium is often brought upon what is called scientific farming by the failure of men of science when they attempt t...
