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

The Victoria Regia. HARLAND COULTAS This splendid plant is a native of the tropical parts of South America. On account of its beauty, magnitude and rarity, it has hcen styled the " Queen of Flowers." It is found floating on the broad waters of the Amazon and its tributary streams. It also grows in Bolivia and British Guiana and is consequently widely distributed over the interior of South America. The Victoria Regia was first discovered by Hanikc, a German naturalist, in 1821; but, although he collected specimens and described the plant, it remained unknown to European naturalists, because Hamke never lived to return to his native country, but, unfortunately for the cause of botanical science, died at the Philippine Islands. In 1828. D'Orbigny, a distinguished French naturalist, came across the Victoria Regia whilst descending the river Parena, in South America. He immediately sent specimens to the Museum of Natural History in Paris. In his published work, entitled " Travels in Trop...

First Experience of a Debt. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

First Experience of a Debt. INCHES Never did I feel prouder or richer than when my father said, " Harry, that calf is jours; I'll give you Bossy; she shall be yours." He was standing whittling in the old barn-door, while I, his oldest son, was maiking with delighted interest, Bossy's frisky movements in the yard; how she would snuff in the morning air, then whisk her tail and caper around, if not with all the grace, with far more gladsomeness and naturalness than a ballet queen. Bossy seemed to think it a very pleasant thing to live. Much as I loved the cicature before, I was seized with a fresh puff of love at my father's generous announcement. "Nep !" I cried, "Nep, that is my calf! see to it, sir. that you treat her like a gentleman, and not bark at her or bite at her when you fetch the cows from pasture." Neptune looked up, wagged his tail, and glanced at Bossy, as much as to say, " Yes, yes, 1 understand the matter." To my brothers and sisters — and there were five younger than...

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

EXTRACT FROM "THE ANDES." AN UNPUBLISHED POEM, BY C. W. B. NO. VI. Dove-eyed Beauty, like an angel, dwells In this majestic home. Her sparry caves, Whote grottoes weep, unpitied dewy tears; Where wonder strays in glittering solitudes. Her Bweet wild-flowers, that spring like spirits From the mouldering stones, and die unseen, Causing sadness, that leaves no ache behind. Her gurgling streams, that flow through forest shades, Wooing luxurious raposc—all these, Like music, breathe a calmness o'er my heart, That yields to beauty, as the soul to song. Man's cursed ambition, that despoils all climes, And greed of gold, o'er crested wave, first led The cruel Spaniard, to the Andes' base, — Where bloodiest deeds, that e'er in human hearts, Enkindled horror's flame, became their sport. Their history's page, grew to a book ol blood, And nations cursed their name and memory. Victorious battles, heaped the earth with slain, But freed th«m not from foemen's myriads— For all wore heroes, and—eage...

The London Merchant [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

The London Merchant MR. BOURCICAULT's SKETCHES OF EUROPEAN SOCIETY. John Oakheart and Son are Baltic merchants. Young John entered his father's office as a clerk at sixty pounds a year, of which he paid his mother forty for his board, lodging, and washing, and clothed himself with the odd twenty. Do not imagine that Mr. Oakheart's establishment required this assistance. The old gentleman desired to make his son feel independent —he was a man, he earned his own livelihood, and should feel that he supported himself. At twenty-five years of age, young Oakheart marries, receiving with his wife a moderate sum of money. He wants to purchase a share in his father's business: they cannot come to terms. Young John can make a better bargain with a rival house in the trade. The old man hesitates :he likes the sound of J. Oakheart and Son. but business is business. Had his son married a penniless girl, the father would have given him what he now refuses to sell; but now business is business, an...

"Who is Fanny Fern ?" [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

"Who is Fanny Fern ?" A PLAIN STATEMENT OF FACTS. " Speak of me as I am; nothing extenuate, Nor eet down aught in malice." —Othello. In consequence of the recent issue of a work of fiction, the distinguishing feature of which is an attempt to embody, in the guise of a romance, a partial account of the public and private history of the literary star whose name graces the head of this article, —we consider it due to our readers, who were the first to form the acquaintance of " Fanny" as a writer; due also to ourselves, to the public generally, and, above all, to the personal friends and relatives of the lady in question, to answer, in as plain and concise a manner as possible, the oft-repeated inquiry—"Whois Fanny Fern?" Fanny's maiden name was Willis. She is the daughter of Mr. Nathaniel Willis, one of our most industrious and respectable townsmen, —now a man well advanced in years. It is scarce necessary to add that she is sister to Mr. N. P. Willis, the brilliant essayist and poet....

A MOTHER'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 8 March 1855

A MOTHER'S LOVE. E. FORTES. DYER I do marvel how a mother, In the midst of numerous cures, Can contrive so well to. manage All her family affairs. From the early dawn ot morning Till the hour ol evening rest, Who can nil tiie thoughts und counsels That are busy in her breast ? What apparel must be furnished, And what stitches must be set J Whtt an endless round of duties By her labors must be met. Then the queer and curious questions Which her little children <i*k, She will answer with affection, Though 'tis not an easy task. V She will list their sad complainings When 'iltliction gives them puin, She. will kiss the wounded linger. So to make it well again. If her little baby's crowing, Is sweet music in her ears, And her tide of love flows deepest For the child of lewest years, Who will blame the tender mother For an instinct of her heart, If against her roguish elders, She shall take the baby's part f Yet she wins the children's reverence, While their hearts are very yo...
