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

Vineyards of the Ohio. The following was prepared by R Buchanan. Esq., for the Columbian, and condenses much useful information upon the grape culture and manufacture: At your request I present you with the following account of this year's vintage in the vicinity of Cincinnati, and statistics of vine culture in the West, prepared from data in the possession of the Cincinnati Horticulture Society and the Wine Growers association of this city, and from my own personal knowledge and observation. It may be relied on as nearly accurate. Within a circle of twenty miles around Cincinnati, about 1.200 acres arc planted with the vine, some 800 acres of which were in bearing this year, and produced on an average 400 gallons to "the acre—an aggregate of 320.000 gallons of wine. Some of the best vineyards yielded 000 to 800 gallons to the acre; but others, in localities where the'-rot" prevailed, did not average over 150 gallons per acre. The season was considered very favorable, and the crop u...

The New Rochelle Blackberry. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 15 March 1855

The New Rochelle Blackberry. Editor N. E. Fakmer : I notice some remarks in the January number of your paper, in regard to the price of the New Rochelle Blackberry. The price at which they are sold is by no means extravagant, as they arc only propagated by shoots from the roots, which all must be aware, is a slow process. The only two persons who raise them for sale—Mr. Lawton, of New Rochelle. and Geo. Seymour & Co., of Norwalk, Ct.—are trying to raise for their own transplanting; for after the first or second years' transplanting, they will raise more than a dollar's worth of the "fruit, and the demand for the fruit is greater than the supply, and will be for years to come. t I exhibited Inst year in New Haven, from Messrs. Geo. Seymour & Co., at our Horticultural Exhibition, very fine specimens. One of the berries measured four by three and a half inches in circumference, the size of a pullet's egg. Some of the specimens were taken from a plant in Mr. Smit...

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

Striking Cuttings. One of the most important as well as the most delightful occupation of the amateur or lady gardener, is just now dawning on us; namely, propagating plants for the decoration of the flower garden during summer. Many, doubtless, think increasing their stock by means of slips or cuttings, an art only to be practiced with success by the best gardeners. For the information of that numerous class of readers, who cannot command the services of an experienced gardener, and who nevertheless desire to have their " door-yards " look gay with nature's gems during the summer months, we beg to say it is not so, and offer the following as a guide to the inexperienced. To get ordinary bedding plants to take root from cuttings, the great secret is, to place them in such an atmosphere as will check the evaporation of the juices of the cuttings, till such times as they have formed roots of their own. and become perfect plants. This is secured in the following manner: Get four pieces...

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

The Worsted Stocking. The following thrilling adventure is from an English Magazine: '■Father will have done the great chimney to-night, won't he mother ?" said little Tom Howard, as he stood waiting for his father's hreakfast. which he carried to him at his work every morning. '• He said he hoped all the scaffolding would he down to-night," answered his mother. " and that'll be a fine sight; for I never like the ending of those great chimnoys ; it's so risky ; thy father's to be the last up." ~ t; Eh, then, but I'll go and see him. and help 'em give a shout afore he comes down." said Tom. "And then," continued his mother, : ' if all goes on right, we are to have a frolic to-morrow, and go into the country and take our dinners, and spend all day amongst the woods." •' Hurrah!" cried Tom,, as he ran off to his father's place of work, with a can of milk in one hand and some bread in the other. His mother stopped at the door, watching him as he went merrily whistling down the street, a...

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

Recovering a Fortune. Lord II , an English nobleman, ruined by the extravagance of London fashion, had counted on a handsome inheritance to pay off his debts and enable him to pass the remainder of his days in wisdom and quiet. But the expected inheritance came not—and the young lord, rendered desperate by his disappointment, and finding himself doomed to the most precarious condition, deprived of all hope of fortune, full of misery, resolved on blowing out his brains. The loaded pistol was in his band, when, most unaccountably. Lord H suddenly remembered that the Epsom races were soon to come off. Too superstitious to believe that chance had inspired him with such a thought in such a moment without a motive, he dropped his pistol and began calculating his chances of regaining his fortune in tho approaching contest. His critical eituotion was not known, his credit in the sporting clubs was unlimited, and he availed himself of it by unscrupulously engaging in very heavy bets with som...

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

SEPARATION. My koul thy sacred Image keeps— My midnight dream* are all of thee ; For nature then iv silence sleeps, And silence hroods o'er land and sea. Oh, in that still, mysterious hour. How oil from waking dreams I start, To rind thee hot a fancy flower, Thou cherished idol of my heart. Thou hast each thought and dream of mineHave I in turn one thought of tfiinc t Forever thine my dreams will be, Whate'cr may hp my fortunes here j I ask not love—l claim from thee Only one boon, a gentle tear. May e'er West visions from above Play brightly 'round thy happy heart, And may the benms of peace and love' Ne'er from thy glowing soul depart. Farewell I my dreams are still with thes— Hast thou one tender thought of me t My joys like summer birds may fly, My hoi c- like summer blooms depart, But there's ore flower that cannot die— Thy holy memory in my heart No dews that flower's cup may fill. No sunlight to its leavvs be given, But it will live and flourish still, As deathless as a thing...

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

Business Endurance. Men of genius without endurance, cannot succeed. Men who start in one kind of business may find it impossible to continue therein all their days. 111-health may demand a change. New and wider fields of enterprise and success may be opened to them ; new elements of character may be developed. Men may have a positive distaste for some pursuits, and to succeed may demand a change. None of these cases, fall within the general rule. Men may have rare talents, but if they are "every thing by turns and nothing long," they must not expect to prosper. No form of business is free from vexations; each man knows the spot on which the harness chafes ; but he cannot know how much his own neighbor suffers. It is said that a Yankee can splice a rope in many different ways; an English sailor knows but,one method, but in that method he does his work well. Life is not long enough to allow any one to become real master of more than one pursuit. The history of eminent men in all prof...

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

Influence of Woman. The utter subjection of woman to the arbitrary I wili of man is characteristic of countries steeped [ in ignorance, barbarism and tyranny. The ele-] vation of woman to the intellectual dignity of man is characteristic of countries blessed with i knowledge, civilization and liberty. Let the des-' potic nations of the Last regard the tender sex as j slaves only to their uncontrolled dominion ; but i let the free nations of Europe prove their superiority injustice, refinement and religion, by sharing with that sex all the mental pleasures of Which they we as capable as ourselves. If incompetent legislators make bad laws, women are as deeply injured by their operation as men; if competent legislators secure good laws, women are as much benefited by the blessings they produce as men: independently of which, if even men alone were' subject to the evil or the good, how could woman be indifferent to the happiness of their husbands, fathers, brothers, or sons, of whom suc...

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

Conversation. Among a large proportion ot young women, and especially among those who are not remarkable for the strength of their understandings, and who have not been accustomed to estimate the worth of objects according to the standard of reason and religion, conversation loaded with flatteries, as silly as they are gross, too often finds welcome hearers. Hence, also, discourse is confined, in circles of this description, to scenes, topics and incidents, which embrace little more than the amusemcn's of the preceding or ensuing afternoon ; the looks and the dress of the present com■pany, or of their acquaintance; petty anecdotes of the neighborhood* and local scandal. Is it wonderful, then, that the wish prevalent in most men. and especially in young men, to render themselves acceptable in social intercourse to the female sex, should betray them into a mode of behaviour which they perceive to be so generally welcome? Is it wonderful that he who discovers trifling to be the way to ...

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

The True Wife. She is no true wife who sustains not her husband in the day of calamity', who is not. when the world's great frown makes the heart chill with anguish, his guardian angel, growing brighter and more beautiful as misfortunes crowd along his path. Then is the time for triai of her gentleness, then is the time for testing whether the sweetness of her temper beams only with a transient, light, or like the steady glory of the morning star, shines as brightly tinder the clouds. Ihis she then smiles just as chai ruing? Does she say, " Affliction cannot touch our purity, and should not quench our love ?" Docs she try, by happy little inventions, to lift from his sensitive spirit the burden of thought ? There are wives—nay, there are beings who, when dark hours come, fall to repining and upbraiding —thus adding to outside anxiety the harrowing scenes of domestic strife —as if all the blame in the world would make one hair white or black, or change the decree gone forth. Such kno...

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

Home Influence. Wouldest thou listen to it* gentle teaching, All thy restless yearuings.it would still; Leaf, and flower, and laden bee are preaching, Thine own sphere, though humble, first to fill. Truly has it been said, that "our duties are like the circles of a whirlpool, and the innermost includes home." A modern writer has designated home "'heaven's fallen sister;" and a melancholy truth lies shrouded in those few words. Our home influence is not a passing but an abiding one; and all powerful for good or evil, for peace or strife, for happiness or misery. Each separate Christian home has been linked to a central sun, around which revolves a happy and united band of warm, loving hearts, acting, thinking, rejoicing and sorrowing together. Which member of the family group can say, I have no influence? What sorrow, or what happiness, lies in the power of each ! " A lighted lamp," writes M'Cheyne, " is a very small thing, and it burns calmly and without noise, yet it giveth light t...
