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

INNS AND OUTS. JKEMS I'm out of cash, and so, of course, I've pocket room to let; I'm out oi patience, just because I'm never out of debt. Besides, I'm dreadfully in lov, And more than half in doubt Which is the greater evil, that Ofbeiuginoroutl I'm deeply in my tailor's books, But 1 don't mind a dun; And if I wasn't out of funds I'd pay him, out of fun. Ho always gave me "tits," ho said, But heaven bless his eyes; I would put him in a tit, I guess, He'd be in such surprise, I'm out at elbows, in distress, — In sooth, a aorry tale 1 I'm out of favor, out of sorts, But, then, I'm out of jail. My landlord says my time is out, And thinks I'd better "shin," I'm such an out and outer, he Won't have me in his inn.

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

THE DISSATISFIED MAN. Still restless, still chopping and changing about; Still enlarging, rebuilding, and making a rout; Little Timothy, strange as things may appear, Pulls down and builds up again, ten times a year ; With this altering rage, poor dissatisfied elf 1 What a pity it is he don't alter himself. A Jokk op tub Quincys.—Some years ngo the vencrabje Josiah Quincy, then President of Harvard University, and his son, who lectured htre one evening so humorously, instructively and happily on "Joe Smith and the Mormons," then President of the Common Council of the city of Boston, were toasted or alluded to as two President Quincys. After the usual noisy demonstration, the younger Quincy very gravely aiosc and repudiated the idea of such grouping of Presidents. He told the audience that he intended to be courteous to others, and yet submit to allow nothing to be said derogatory to his own dignity. " I beg leave to request the audience to remember that the old gentleman over there ...

Novel Form of Industrial Protection. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Novel Form of Industrial Protection. If the State is benefited by the progress of American industry, as it surely is; IT it is the State which is reformed in all such progress as that now soliciting our attention, as it certainly is. then the State is, in fact, the community which should tax itself, and the people have no cause of complaint for any such assessment. It is equally true that all outsiders have nothing to do with the thing; and if they come in" at all. it must be on onr own terms. Now, suppose we should agree that any may come in, provided a certain amount of per centage of the articles thus brought in and sold shall be put into our treasury, to form a Fund to be expended for our improvement, to enable ns to produce the very best specimens of the article in question in the very best manner. It is imquestionably better that each unit, whether individual or social, should be independent of all others, so far. at least, as these necessary products of labor are concerned It...

Agricultural Papers Instead of Money. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Agricultural Papers Instead of Money. Friend Brown : —I wish you to give me a small space in your paper, to enter my protest, as politicians say, against Agricultural Societies awarding money or cash premiums. Now what is the object of awarding premium? Certainly not to pay the receiver for having the best farm, or best horse, or cow. The very fact of having such is his reward. The object is to improve our fanners in agriculture. Now how does the donation of a dollar and a half in money, to a lanner, improve agriculture. The amount is too small to be of any permanent benefit to him. Suppose the same amount was paid him in the "Ohio Farmer," foi one year! He gets fifty-two instalments, each of which will do him more good in farming, than the whole would if paid in money. He has something permanent, substantial, useful, ft is spread over a whole year; like the dews of Heaven, it is continually refreshing his soil, improving his stock, bettering fruit, and will add enough to the profit...

Waiting for the Latest Improvement. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Waiting for the Latest Improvement. Ahe you acquainted with Fanner Tardy? He is a cautious man. He is what might appropriately be termed an excessively prudent individual —one of that class who is never taken in with new fangled notions of this inventive age. He professes to be thoroughly acquainted with every thing he purchases, and never (in his own estimation) has he been " taken in "by dealers. In a word. Farmer Tardy is the man who for many years past has been waiting for tho latest improvement in agricultural machinery. Three years ago when his neighbor Thrifty purchased the first reaping machine introduced into his section of the country, Farmer Tardy laughed hetrtily at his neighbor's verdancy. But Farmer Thrifty had never been taught to hold the sixpence so close to his eye as to hide the dollar beyond. Tardy's pleasantiies were received good humoredly, and the reaper was put to work. The first season nearly one-half the expenses of cutting his harvest were saved, and the n...

Tender Feet in Horses. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Tender Feet in Horses. Mr. Editor :—The mechanism of the horse's foot —contemplated anatomically —is truly wonderful. No one who understands it will be surprised at the number of lame horses seen in our streets, and on our farms, for with such complicateness and delicacy of construction, it is not at all astonishing that, with the careless manner in which these valuable animals are treated and ridden, they should so frequently be rendered useless by lameness, especially in their legs and feet Tender feet are quite common, and I will, with your permission, relate an incident that occurred some years since in my experience, which I think goes far to elucidate the cause of this disease. I was owner of a young horse, for which I paid a large price, and which I knew to be perfectly sound when I purchased him. He was one of the best animals I ever knew —kind, docile and intelligent, and having an affection for him, I could not bear the idea of causing him pain. But I sold him, and purchas...

Interesting Statistics. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Interesting Statistics. The report of Mr. Deßow of the census Bureau, shows that the foreign born population of the United States numbers only about one-eighth of the native—much the largest portion beiag in the Middle States. The largest number of immigrants to this country in any one year was 439.----437 in 1852. The most valuable crop in the United States is that of Indian Corn, estimated in 1850 at two hundred and ninety-six millions of dollars—and being nearly three times as valuable as Wheat, and more than three times as valuable as Cotton. Six times as many acres of land are devoted to Indian Corn as are given to Cotton and three times as much as to Wheat. The value of Butter made annually in the United States exceeds fifty millions of dollars. There are only 347,525 slaveholders in the United States, of whom only two own over one thousand negroes, only nine own over five hundred, only fifty-six own over three hundred, one hundred and eighty-seven own over two hundred, fourte...

Convention of the Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Convention of the Farmers. It has long been deemed most advisable by the Executive Committee of the State Agricultural Society to call a convention of the " Cultivators of the Soil." By the advice and counsel of many, the Executive Committee do therefore call upon all who feel an interest in advancing the Agriculture of California, to assemble at the City of Sacramento, on Wednesday forenoon, 25th April. The Executive Committee of the State Society earnestly call upon all County Societies, already organized, to call together their members and appoint full delegations to represent their several counties; and in those counties where there are no organization existing, it is hoped meetings will be called and delegates chosen; and it is also, suggested that as the Convention is to be held at the capitol of the State, each section of the State will immediately open a communication with their Senators and Representatives, and make known to them all the important matters necessary to be ac...

Agricultural Aid from the State. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Agricultural Aid from the State. One year since the Legislature granted $5,000 per annum for four years, for the special purpose of awakening a due attention to this great science among the cultivators. This amount was specially devoted to the payment of " premiums " only; no provision was made for the support of the Society, in any expenditure it should be called upon to make, to organize a State Society, or prepare for an Annual Exhhibition and Fair. All such expenditures had to be provided for by donations from friends, by memberships, and admission fees at the Annual Fairs. The First Fair was held, and owing to the general depression among cultivators, there was not that interest shown which was hoped and which was expected. The Fair was of a character however that reflected credit upon the State, but many circumstances occured at the time to prevent a general interest and attendance—such I as the calamity to the " Yankee Blade," the Meiggs excitement, a stormy week, &am...

The Seasons. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

The Seasons. From letters received from nearly all sections of our State, we have very flattering accounts of the crops. Grain never looked better, and the quantity planted will be found to be large. A most gratifying attention has been paid to seeding land to grasses of various kinds—herd, grass, red top, red clover, alfalfa (Peruvian clover.) and some other grasses have been planted in various sections of our State, and with flattering prospects. dn the vegetable districts a more systematic plan has been pursued. The amount that has been planted of potatoes, onions, cabbages and roots crops generally, is more in accordance with the wants of the given section, than as a mere system of guess work or speculation. This will be far better for all. By the appearance of the orchards that have sprung into existence w*thin two years, one can anticipate the present year a most luxurious market of fruits. Many thousands of fruit trees of all kinds have been planted and with great success. Th...

California Wine. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

California Wine. Keep it before the people that California will ere long export wine, aye, and the produce of the wine vats of the Golden State. Mr. Buffum, the able Representative of San Francisco, in a recent speech on the liquor law, gave the following data relative to the vineyards and wine of Los Angeles. In frequent visits to the capital we have noticed with satisfaction that he is ever ready upon any question,. We never saw him away from his post, or unprepared upon any question of importance that might arise. Such men are the real working men, and such men we want always. We are happy to know we have many such from all parts of the State, and we shall endeavor to note them and their actions justly : "In Los Angeles county—the vineyard of California—there are already under cultivation as many acres covered with the vine as there are in the whole great State of Ohio, the pioneer in the wine manufacture of the United States. In Los Angeles the number of bearing vines amounts to...

Letter from Sierra County. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Letter from Sierra County. Dowmkville, Mttrcli 28, 1855. Messrs. Editobs : The season here is as far advanced as it was last year the last of April. I have commenced plowing and putting in seed. Times are brightening up some; miners are making good use of the water they have, although there is not enough for all. I should judge from the snow in the mountains that there will be hard times the coming summer; there is not snow enough to keep up the springs later than the middle of April. Potatoes are selling here at 12 cents a pound, cabbage 20c, beets 20c, carrots 20c, rutabaga lfic; the trouble is to get the money, though that is not so bad as it was. I have on hand 8,000 cabbages which average six pounds to the head. There are better times coming, whether we live to see them or not. Hope on, hope ever, is my motto. Yours, P. Note. —We publish the above, although a private letter, to show that our mountain friends are wide awake on the subject of raising their own produce in the moun...

Management of Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 5 April 1855

Management of Tobacco. We call attention to the annexed article on the " Management of Tobacco." as important to growers in this country. It is presumed that a considerable quantity will be raised in this State the present year, and, successful as may be the culture, the curing and preparing of it for the market is a very important theme. We know that last year the value of what was raised was materially affected in value by the condition in which it was brought to market—varying, in many instances, 25 cts. and 50 cts. per pound. We knew of fine tobocco raised here and sold for wrappers as high as $2 per pound: for this reason we lay before our readers all the information we can upon all the productions of our State. In looking over the November number of the Southern Planter, my attention was particularly , called to an M Essay on the Culture of Tobacco," over the signature of Wm. H. Jones, of Mecklenburg. Being a planter myself, I read it carefully, and think it a good production....
