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

Varieties. A Yankee Story.—A friend of ours tells one of the most capital stories, illustrative of Yankee shrewdness in driving a bargain, we have ever heard. It is the well-known practice of NewEngland farmers, living in the vicinity of smtill towns, to send their produce to some merchant residing there and receive all sorts of goods in exchange. Sometime during the last war with the mother country, when many and all kinds of goods were scarcej a tall, heavy Green Mountain boy. walked several miles into town with an egg which his mother had sent him with to exchange for a darning needle. The bargain was concluded, but still the countryman tarried in the store, looking silently and wistfully about him, with his wide mouth half open, until he spied at the farther end a decanter of old West India rum; this sight was too exciting for longer endurance and overcame his bashfulness at once — " Look here, mister," Jonathan exclaimed, "don't you always treat when you've made a trade?"

THE STUDY OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

THE STUDY OF AGRICULTURE. Mr. Editor : I was right glad to read in the Farmer of last week, your editorial, calling the attention of farmers and others to the importance of Agriculture being taught in our common schools. When we consider that about seven-eighths of our population are engaged in agricultural pursuits, that this art is the basis of all other arts and coeval with the first dawn of civilization, and that its successful prosecution depends upon a knowledge, in the cultivation of the soil, of the principles of natural science, is it not to be regretted that we have not long since established schools, in which our youth may be taught the principles and Jjraetice of their future btisigeqp • me. on Tvhicn ruort than "any «tW Wandi r>t business, the fortune of our country, moral, political, and national, depends? In almost all the other departments of life, we require a preparatory study, before the student is qualified for his part. And yet agriculture, the great ...

TENANT LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

TENANT LABOR. In many sections of our country, and particularly in the long settled portions, there is a complaint of the scarcity of laborers to secure the i harvest. In our love for large farms and the possession of much land, we apprehend, lies the true ! source of this want; and it can only be remedied when means are provided by which this labor shall he retained imthe country. A friend who is one of the most successful farmers in Western New York, having been for many years annoyed by the difficulty of securing good and efficient help in summer, has resorted to the plan of having what may be called " tenant labor." He has several small houses suitable for a laboring man and family, which he rents at a fair price per annum, on the conditiou that he shall have the first refusal of service at the stipulated price per day or month, as the case may be. In this way he is free from the care and trouble of providing for a large number of hired men on his own homestead, and his better h...

WHEAT-GROWING IN MASSACHUSETTS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

WHEAT-GROWING IN MASSACHUSETTS. Some twenty-five years ago, it was well known that wheat could not be raised in Massachusetts, except in a few favored spots on Connecticut river. The reason was the land was too old ; that wheat could only be raised profitably on new lands. Yet wheat has always been raised in the old "'countries." in England, in Italy, in Germany, in Russia, in as broad a range of latitude as our whole country, from New Orleans to Pembina in 49°. , But since the establishment of Agricultural Societies and the increased circulation of farming newspapers, in consequence of which it is no longer held as treason, or even as a high misdemeanor, to suggest new hints or express new ideas upon the business of farming, it has been really suggested that wheat might be raised on our soil, and the experiment, bold as it may seem, has been tfied. The result of the experiment is, we believe, that wheat, though not considered so certain or so profitable a crop as corn, may. notwith...

Horseback Exercise. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

Horseback Exercise. Riding on horseback is, perhaps, of all others the most manly, elegant and efficient form of exercise. In the first place, it cannot be taken without being out of doors; then it enables you to breathe a larger amount of fresh air than if walking, because you pass through a greater space in less time, and consequently a greater number of layers, or rather sections of fresh air, come in contact with the nostrils, with less fatigue. Another advantage is, that all the muscles of the body are exercised in moderation, and, v to a certain extent, equally so. And then again, while thus exercising, and while every step forward gives you a fresh draught of pure out-door air, the mind is entertained by every variety of objects, new things being constatdy presented. The only thing to be guarded against is a feeling of chilliness; this is essential, for every chill is an injury; whether a man be sick or well, a chill must necessarily be succeeded by a fever, and fever is dise...

Agricultural Fair and Industrial Exhibition of 1855. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

Agricultural Fair and Industrial Exhibition of 1855. There is no State in the Union where there could be so grand a display of the products of the earth as in California. From her vast grain fields, her fruit orchards and gardens, her vineyards, and the most wonderful display from the vegetable kingdom —we venture to assert that the present year California could make a display that cannot be excelled, if it could be equalled in the world. When we reflect that about .six years since this State was a barren waste, almost wholly uninhabited, except by the gallant and noble pioneer, Gen. Sutter, at the embarcadero' at Sacramento, and a few scattered settlers; and with the exception of the adobes at San Francisco, the trading port of those who came to California to buy hydes and tallow. Sacramento. Marysville, Benicia, Nevada, Placervillc, and scores of other cities were unknown. When we think all this, and now see the busy throng at this great commercial mart, the steamers plying upon t...

To our Sacramento Subscribers and our Sacramento Agencies. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

To our Sacramento Subscribers and our Sacramento Agencies. We have a goodly number of subscribers at this goodly ci ty, and it is our earnest wish to know that they are promptly supplied with the California Farmer. Sacramento city is now the permanent seat of government for California, and will always exert a commanding inflnence in all the internal relations of the citizens. Sacramento will soon be the grand entrepot from whence will diverge rail roads, stage routes and various means of communications, all of which will tend to build up that city and make her influential, and while San Francisco will hold her commanding influence as the great commercial emporium, so Sacramento will hold a position second only to the Bay city in point of size, population and wealth. For these reasons we look to those influences that will affect all her internal relations. The Annual Exhibition of the State Agricultural Society, and the Annual Cattle Show, together with an Exhibition of Manufactures ...

Alfalfa. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

Alfalfa. This wonderful grass (Trijolium), commonly known as a Peruvian clover, is beginning to be appreciated in California. Two years since we urged attention to it; but with that kind of faith which the mass had in this climate, that "nothing could grow here," it was lightly esteemed. Many now deeply regret the losses they have experienced for want of it. There is now abundant testimony scattered over the State that all we said has been more than fulfilled, and that the half of the virtues of this valuable grass was not revealed. We saw lawns of it at tho grounds of Captain Walsh, at Benicia, the past week, that were fourteen inches high, and had full, heavy stalks. Capt. Walsh informs us that from a small plantation he has abundant food for cows and goats, and saves all the expense of buying meal or bran; that every few weeks it can be cut, and the habit of this clover is such that when one stalk is cut down, from six to ten spring from the roots in its place. We counted from tw...

Benicia. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

Benicia. Benicia, once the bold competitor in the field for the Commercial Emporium of California, and for a time the presumed or real capital of the State, is now a quiet seaport town, ami yet of some considerable importance. Benicia is thcU. S. military station, and also the head quarters of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, with their immense Iron works. The military station gives life and animation to the place by the various duties and employments necessary for the protection of our coast, and being a convenient point, troops can be sent to any place, ready for any emergency. The head quarters of Maj. Gen. Wool, is Benicia; his name and fame are a sure guarantee that the duties and responsibilities of a true American officer will be most honorably fulfilled. Probably no station in the United States can boast, as to numbers, more honorable, courteous, or better qualified officers and troops than Benicia. The Pacific Mail Company's steamer depot and their Iron Works have given ...

FROM THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

FROM THE EAST. The Nicaragua steamship Cortes arrived on Friday evening last, with 200 passengers, and news one week later from the Atlantic States. The revolution in Nicaragua is fast approaching a crisis. The Government party have possession of all the chief places, with the exception of Leon, to which city the revolutionists have retired. San Juan del Stir was taken by Chamono on Feb. 20. He was said to be in Virgin Bay when the Cortes left. The most intense cold weather was experienced in the Northern States during the week preceding the sailing of the steamer. In Massachusetts,on the 6th of February, the thermoTtieter in many localities was 20° below zero. Boston harbor was frozen over as far as the Fort, which has not occurred since the last of January, 1844. On the 7th February , at sunrise, the thermometer at Boston fell 12° below zero, which is the lowest temperature ever remembered in that city. The? New York papers also abound with particulars of the cold. On the 7th ult....

MARKET REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

MARKET REPORTS. We ahoald My that there were no markets. Tho principal thing is for people to find enough to go to market with. Business is generally very dull. Produce is lower—little or nothing doing. Goods arriving—no money to pay for freights. That is the cry in the city; but in the mountains all is merry—miners are cheerful —gold is rolling iv plentifully, and the future promises a golden harvest. Farmers look more, cheerful i the hope of a pnying harvest inspires them, and they work now with a better haart. The late rains have i_ ,\ en iiraurauca that " seed tine and harvest shall never fell."
