State Convention. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

State Convention. The Annual Fair which is to take place in the city of Sacramento, in the month of September next, requires of the citizens of the State some preparatory action in order to make it as useful and valuable to all the interest involved as is possible. It is not alone the Farmers, or Cultivators of the Soil, but all Stock Kaisers, "Wool Growers, Fruit Growers, and our Vine Growers, —aud not only these but our Manufacturers, Machinists, Millwrights, Artisans, Mechanics of all and every class, and not these alone, but all who are interested in art or skill. For the coming Fair measures should now be put in train to have an exhibition of all the Home Industry of tho State —products in all and every department, not only its agricultural wealth, hut its manufactures of every kind ; specimens of the mechanical skijl in every branch ; works of art; the domestic manufactures of home, the immediate handiwork of those whose presence has built up the Homes of California.

Premiums for 1855. The Premiums for the Annual Fair of 1855 will soon be published in the Farmer, thus all will see the value of a ready co-operation on the part of all, in this impatient work. Those who desire to be fully acquainted with all the particulars relative to the Fair and the Premiums, and the steps necessary to take which will entitle competitors to them, should become subscribers to the Farmer, this paper publishing the list full and complete, with all rules and regulations, giving time, place, &c. Farmers and all interested should consult together upon these matters, form Committees in their several districts and take an interest in bringing forward every leading product of the country. Many new and valuable seeds, trees and plants have been discovered in California, and many introduced from abroad; all such should be carefully grown for the Exhibition so that their merits shall be fully tested. We trust a due interest will be awakened in this matter in ear...

The Upper Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

The Upper Sacramento. A correspondent writes us. of March sth, (which letter was delayed.) as follows: The Sacramento is over its banks in all low places, it only lacks about four inches of being as high as the great flood of 1852, which was higher than that of 1849. The most of the rain that caused this rise fell in the mountains, as there has not been much here. The farmers in this vicinity have called a meeting to consider the expediency of erecting a building for the storage of grain, as this would save the expense of the usual plan of storage. The design is, a building in common, as the property of the farmers themselves. Whenever there is anything important I will let you knew. Yours, <fee, X. We are always pleased to hear from our friends, and we like to be advised of all the measures adopted for tho general good. We thank our friend, who is a constant reader of the California Farmer, for the'interest he evinces for our journal. We would suggest to our friends when...

French Loan. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

French Loan. It will be seen by the annexed " Loan of the French Nation," that the real wealth was found among the agricultural districts of the empire. And so it will always be when the nations give it the same encouragement as has the French government; in their hour of need they will be found ready to aid. We copy from the L T . S. Economist. Last year, when the French Emperor despairing of a loan through those large banking houses which for so many years have held the purse strings of the European Governments, boldly opened the books to the whole public, placing the minimum subscription so low as to bring them within the reach of all, the great success of the measure surprised the public. More than tho sum demanded was immediately .subscribed, and in such small sums as to confound those who contended that the Government was unpopular. Since that time the war and the foreign policy of the Goverument has been such as to chajlcngc popular opinion, and the Emperor once more comes fo...

The Dairy Raffle. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

The Dairy Raffle. We have noticed that our cotemporaries of the Pacific have taken up the subject of the Dairy Raffle, and seem to think that the Farmer departs from its legitimate calling, when the measure proposed by the said distribution is advertised or spoken of in our columns. We are not disposed to controversy, nor have we ever attacked or interfered with any cotemporary upon the matters they saw fit to discuss in their columns. We have pursued, with the best of our humble ability, our duties, and shall never waste time in matters of controversy that benefit no one. We have advertised the dairy prize of Mr. Southwick —it was a "farmers theme " —one of the best dairies of the State, and the person is a fortunate one that gets it. We did speak of the matter editorially, and spoke what we believed to be true, and believe ao now; for we know the parties well, and feel confident the business will be properly conducted. Whatever demerit there is in ordinary lotteries, in the distri...

Horticulture in the Highlands, [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Horticulture in the Highlands, We copy the following from the Shasta Courier, and we are as much rejoiced as any one can be at the advance making in our up-river country. Our friends, however high up, need have no fear of success. No matter how elevated, with deep cultivation, every tree, shrub and vine must succeed, and we have abundant testimony that such is the result in every section of the State. High cultivation, & c. deep cultivation will produce better results without water, than shallow culture and all the irrigation that could be applied : Gardening.—Quite a number of gentlemen in , this place have turned their attention to the con- . version of their waste grounds into gardens. The result is that there are a number of very beautiful ' enclosures in various portions of the town, where. I but a short time since, the eye was offended with i unseemly gullies and uncouth hillocks. Our old friend Downer, however, is entitled to the palm, for this kind of improvement...

Hon. Marshall P. Wilder. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Hon. Marshall P. Wilder. Under the head of " Mercantile Biography," Hunt's Merchants' Magazine for January contains a rapid sketch of the life and various pursuits of the gentleman named above, together with a most life-like portrait. In the Courier we find a condensed notice from the article in the Magazine which we subjoin : ■ Mr. Wilder has been a successful merchant in Boston, for thirty years, and is now of the respectable and well-known firm of Parker.

Most Beautiful Sentiment. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Most Beautiful Sentiment. "The setting of a great hope is like the setting of the sun. The brightness of our life is gone Shadows of evening fall around us, and the world seems but a dull reflection—itself a broader shade. We look forward into the corning lonely night. The soul withdraws into itself. The stars arise and the night is holy." No wordscould more truthfully describe scenes that have often been verified in California life. " The setting of a great hope ! " How like an avalanche has misfortune fallen upon the brightest prospects, blotting out every hope from the heart. How often amid the tenderest associations of life has the fell destroyer laid his relentless grasp upon the loveliest among the lovely, and left homes desolate and hearts stricken and paralyzed. How often too has tho cup of bliss been raised almost to the lip, only to be dashed from the grasp, leaving a sting of bitterness so fearful that the heart shudders at the reality of the woe — v The setting of a grea...

A Sublime Bridal—-Two Oceans Wed. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

A Sublime Bridal—-Two Oceans Wed. Invitations are out for the most sublime and magnificent nuptials ever celebrated upon our planet—the wedding of the rough Atlantic, to the fair Pacific 9BMH. An iron necklace has been thrown across the Isthmus ; the banns are already published ; and the bridal party will leave this city on Monday next, February sth, to perform the August ceremony. Some seven millions of dollars have been spent in achieving this union ; but, as the fruits thereof will soon show, it has been money well invested. Across the bosom of the Isthmus, the golden products of our Pacific borders and the incalculable treasures of the distant Orient, are destined to flow in unremitting streams. The stupendous enterprise of uniting the two oceans which embrace the greater portion of the globe, we are proud to say, was conceived and executed by our own citizens, in the frowning face of obstacles that none but Americans could overcome. The swamp, the mountains, the miasmas of the ...

FROM THE EAST. The Nicaragua steamship Uncle Sam, arrived at this port on Friday night, bringing dates from New York to the 37th ult., and from Europe one month later. Site had nearly 500 passengers.

Culture of the Pear. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Culture of the Pear. For more than twenty years has the " pear fever," as it is called, been raging in this part of New England, and many and solemn have been the predictions that " the thing would be run into the ground," and the market so far glutted by over production, that pears would not pay for the cultivation. Nurseries have been established in almost every town—thousands of trees have been sold yearly at auction and at private sale— and yet. strange to say, the price of pears in the market is higher this year than it eyer wasl>efore. A dollar a dozen for handsome dessert pears is an ordinary price. When it is borne in mind that the pear crop is less affected than any other fruit crop of this climate by the casualties of the seasons, the facts here stated are sufficient to show that there is no danger of over-production. A widow lady who owns a small farm of fifty acres not fifty miles from Boston, has received more money the past season from the product of two pea...

Cranberries. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Cranberries. We hare frequently, within the last two or three years, called attention to the importance and profit of cultivating the cranberry, and are glad to know that agitation of the subject through the columns of the press has resulted in the greatly increased production of this healthy and palatable fruit. Mr. John Carroll, whose farm is in the neighborhood of Long-a-Coming. Camden county. N. J., has planted out five acres of his upland with sets gathered in the wild state from the swamps, a portion of which are in full bearing. They arc planted in squares, one and a half by two feet apart, and cultivated as corn and potatoes. The sets spread very fast, and would soon cover the entire ground, if they were not restrained by cultivation, which is necessary, in order to prevent the soil from being hard and baked. On marsh land, or on soil that retains moisture without cultivation, they may be allowed to run into a compact mass, as they soon will, completely covering the ground a...

Subsoiling and Charcoal for Strawberries. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Subsoiling and Charcoal for Strawberries. Mr. W. Saunders in a recent number of the Gcrmantown Telegraph, in an excellent article on " Strawberry Culture," says: "This leads us again to the foundation of all permanent improvement— Subsoil Culture. Trench the soil at least eighteen inches in depth, incorporating a heavy dressing of well-decomposed manure, and if the soil is clayey, or adhesive in its nature, an application of charcoal dust will be highly beneficial. As a corrective for clay ey soils, charcoal can not be too highly recommended. In a physical view, it renders the soil porous and permeable to gases, and chemically, its absorbing and disinfecting properties are equally valuable, the amount of ammonia and other gases which it is capable of absorbing giving it a value as a fertilizer. On a soil thus treated, there will be no danger of defective, half-ripened crops, or the plants burning out, as frequently happens on shallow soil, for although the strawberry is a plant of s...

Guano for Insects. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

Guano for Insects. A correspondent of the Horticulturist, says: Some time last summer, while budding some young Peaches, 1 found that ants had taken possession of some ten feet in one row. They very earnestly resisted my attempts to innoculate the trees, inflicting many unpleasant wounds on my hands and amis. In order to disperse the warlike little nation, I sprinkled near a pint of fine guano along the little ridges. This threw them into immediate consternation. I noticed little collec tions of winged ants huddled close together, and seeming to be quiet, while those without wings ran about in great agitation. The following day not a single insect could be found where the day previous they appeared to be innumerable." To which we add the following from an unknown source —' We had a very tine melon patch which was well nigh destroyed by the striped bug. The vines had commenced running, and in two or three days, the bugs had stripped nearly every leaf. As a desperate remedy, we applie...

A LESSON IN ITSELF SUBLIME. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

A LESSON IN ITSELF SUBLIME. A lesson in itself sublime, A lesson worth enshrining, I* this : " / take no heed of time, , Save when the sun is shining." i Thofe motto words a dial bore, And wisdom never teaches To human hearts a better lore Than this short tent euro teaches. As life is sometimes bright and fair, And sometimes dark and lovely, Let us forget its pain and care, And note its blight hours only. There is no grove on earth's broad chart But has some bird to cheer it; So hope sings on in every heart, Although we may not hear it; And if to-day the heavy wing Of sorrow is oppressing, Perchance to-morrow's sun will bring The weary bean a blessing. Foi life is sometimes bright and fair, And sometimes dark and lonely, Then let's forget its toil and care, Ahd note its bright hours only. We bid the joyous moments haste, And then forget their glitter— We take the cup of life, and taste No portion but the bitter: But we should teach our hearts to deem Its sweetest drops the strongest...

OTHER DAYS. How dear are the scenes that once greeted my gaze, Each friend who so oft and so kindly lv met, Look forward, look backward, I still think of days, Endeared to my mind—l ne'er can forget Nor the scenes which my earlier infancy knew, Still farther from view and the plnce where I set, Fast, present and future all tell me quite true, Recollecting them all —I ne'er shall forget. A mi J sfasss" 4»»-l p-- — 7 "im roams. Gay spirits and happy, I once bade adieu, Undaunted, unfettered they beckon me home, En back to the spot that my infancy knew.

One of the Secrets of Prosperity. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855

One of the Secrets of Prosperity. There cannot be a greater error than to be frequently changing one's business. If any man will look around and notice who have got rich and who have not, out of those he started in life with, he will find that the successful have generally stuck to some one pursuit. Two lawyers for example begin to practice at the same time. One devotes his whole mind to his profession, lays in slowly a stock of legal learning, and waits patiently, it may be for years, till he gains an opportunity to show his superiority. The other, tired of such slow work, dashes into politics. Generally, at then end of twenty years, the latwill not be worth a penny, while the former will have a handsome practice, and count his tens of thousands in bank stock or mortgages. Two clerks attain a majority simultaneously. One remains with his former employer, or at least in the same line of trade, at first on a small salary, then on a larger until finally, if is meritorious he is taken ...
