„ .- < - ^ . Q- - AGRICULTURAL PRESS—THE MONTHLIES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1843

„ .- &amp;lt; - ^ . Q- - AGRICULTURAL PRESS—THE MONTHLIES . Farmer s Monthly Visiter . The May number reached us about the first of this month . It is one of the older of our monthly agriculturals . The present number is ably sustained by contrib utions and judicious selections . An article upon the cultivation of hemp , which we suppose to be by the editor , occupies twelve columns , and communicates the whole process—preparation of the land , sowing , harvesting , rotting and dressing . The plant has a tap-root and the ground should therefore be plowed deep . As inducements to the cultivation of it , it docs not exhaust the land , is hardy , and destroyed by no insects . Those of bur readers who have raised it , say it . is attended with considerable labor . This would undoubtedly be lightened by experience . The Visitor docs not confine itself exclusively to agriculture , but selects some choice miscellany . It is ! published by Isaac Hill &amp;amp; Sons . - ¦¦ - •&am...

LA SALLE COUNTY—THE FAIR . DUBI . VG the past month , we spent a few days in calling upon the farmers in La Salle county , and we found-thcm wide awake concerning the cattle show and fair , able and willing to make all necessary preparations . Zeal in the cause is not-confined to a fow , as is too often the caSs , but all are engaged , —lawyers , -merchants . and others , as well as the . farmcrs . They seem to consider the reputation of the : county for hospitality and public spirit , in a measure dependent upon the manner in which this exhibition goes off ; and if the present interest be maintained , of which we have not . tho shadow of a doubt , their , high reputation will not be tarnished in this trial .

REVIEW OF THE PRAIRIE FARMER FOR JULY . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 August 1843

REVIEW OF THE PRAIRIE FARMER FOR JULY . BY JONATHAN MCATEE—INCOG . 2 D . DEAR MESSRS . EDITORS : The non-appearance of my review in your last No . gives me great uneasiness . I begin seriously to apprehend that I have mistaken my vocation . I tried to imitate Incog the 1 st , and went so far as to say WE whenever I spoke of my humble self ; but whether or not I overshot the mark , or shot entirely to one side of the object aimed at , or did not elevate my swivel high enough , or apply the match soon enough , remains for editorial disclosure in future , as Incog the 1 st would say , and / must say , of course , for it seems no style or manner will suit you or your readers except it be the pure , pertinent , classic style of that learned doctor and agricultural champion . Well , be it so . It augurs well of the public taste . We will venture one charge more , and if we do not hear from you encouragingly , or receive some token of approba ^ lion om your readers—we dont expect applause—...

It becomes my duty , as president of this Society , to address you . The form , of course , must be complied with ; and I would that I could make it something more than mere form . We have met to discuss and improve an interesting and important subject—a subject to which I am so ardentl y attached and almost enthusiastically devoted , that had I the ability as I have the will , I would bring to its aid all the convincing logic of an Aristotle arid the captivating eloquence of a Cicero .

HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SEV -ERAL BREEDS OF SHEEP . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 August 1843

HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SEVERAL BREEDS OF SHEEP . BY HENUY S . 1 UNDAU .. WOOL-GBOWIKO is to be so important a part of western fanning , that a thorough acquaintance with the different varieties of sheep is indispensable . For some lime we have been on the look-out for a concise description , that our readers could place dependence upon ; but we have found it a difficult task to procure accounts of particular breeds from impartial observers ; in almost every instance finding the writer had a few choice ones for sale of the particular breed he described . The following essay by Ma . RANDALL appears to us as fair and impartial as any thing we shall probably find , and we therefore copy it entire from the Transactions of the N . Y . State Agricultural Society , for 1841 . Parts of it might be omitted , perhaps , without greatly detracting from its value to most of our readers ; but we prefer giving it entire . The Prairie Farmer is intended to be made useful for future refer...

RED CLOVER AND TIMOTHY [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 August 1843

RED CLOVER AND TIMOTHY IIY ABRAHAM SMITH . WHEN I first commenced farming on the Grand Prairie , it . was on a tract of land oh which was a small field that had been cultivated for ten years—every year but one in corn—so that by that lime it did not yield as good a crop of corn as the newer land in tho neighborhood . But to remedy that , I sowed the old field in clover , with oats—about three bushels of clover seed in chad to the acre . The clover succeeded well , making a valuable pasture for . hogs , horses , and such cattle as I wished to keep enclosed for two years . But in the field there were a few damp spots of land on which the clover continued thin ; on th ese spots I sowed timothy seed . The next year the whole field was mowed and produced so largo a ^ erop of hay that I was itu ., duccd to belicAC in clover . ^ And on seeing an enquiry ) in an agricultural paper whether clover was well adapted to the grand prairie , I gave my experience , with flic opinion that if I were ...

In this part , of the country we continue to improve in the art . of making ditch-and-bank fence .

I have no hesitation in saying thai in wet land this kind offence will be found the cheapest and best . On dry land more care is-rcquired in making , and more repairs arc needed . Mr .

HOME MANUFACTURES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 August 1843

The inhabitants of Chicago and all northern Illinois , who lived here ( 3 years ago , know that almost all our manufactures were imported ; wagons and farming utensils , shoes and hats , cabinet ware , &amp;amp; c . ; and they also know that they had to pay not only the original cost whore the articles were manufactured , but transportation , insurance , commission and storage , which made them cost high , especially all bulky articles . Shops arc now established , and building ; workmen arc now here , and coming , to sup ply us with most of our manufactures . Our chair and cabinet makers , wagon and harness makers , have ne...

THE U . A . S . EXHIBITION . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 August 1843

THE U . A . S . EXHIBITION . To the mechanics would wc appeal for aid in rendering the approaching exhibition worthy of the great West . Identified as arc the interests of mechanics with those of tn cJarmers , it becomes them to unite in this annual Arrival , particularly as it may be made to conduce so much to their pecuniary advantage . On all hands western mechanics ore complaining for want of patronage—that patronage which might be bestowed upon them by purchasing articles of their own manufacture , but which now goes to the East to a considerable extent . Unquestionably many orders are sent to eastern manufacturers which might as well be filled in tho West ; and this must continue till western manufacturers convince western purchasers that they can be supplied at home with articles as good and as cheap as elsewhere . There is no occasion like the annual cattleshow and fair of the Union Agricultural Society to make an exhibition of mechanical skill ; and if mechanics fail to tak...

FEATHERS OF BIRDS—THEIR CONSTRUCTION . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 August 1843

FEATHERS OF BIRDS—THEIR CONSTRUCTION . But the artificial part of the feather is the beard , or , as if : is sometimes I believe called , the vane . By tho beards are meant , what are fastened on each side of the stem , and what constitute the breadth of the feather ; what wc usually strip off from one side or both , when wc make a pen . The separate pieces or lamina ? , of which the board is composed , are called threads—sometimes filament , or rays . Now the first thing which an attentive observer will remark is , how much stronger the beard of the feather shows itself to be , when pressed in a direction perpendicular to its plane , than when rubbed , either up or down , in the line of the stem ; and he will soon discover the structure which occasions this difference , viz . that the lamina ) whereof these beards arc composed , arc flat , and placed with their flat side towards each other ; by which means , whilst they easily bend for the approaching of each other , as any one may...
