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

Varieties. Not so very Green.—A young and apparently verdant slip, who gave his hailing place as "old Varmount." found himself surrounded, upon a certain occasion, by a crowd of quizzing upstarts, who seemed bent upon displaying their own smartness, at the expense of the Yankee. "Hello. Jonathan!" says one. "where you bound ?" " Deoun to Bosting. on a little tramp." Mas the reply. " What's your business in Boston ?" contiucd the inquisitive gentleman. " Oh. I'm deoun artcr my pension money," responded greeny. ''Pension money!" ejaculated whiskeree —"how much do you fret, and what are you drawing pension money for ?" MOh !" answered the countryman, " 1 get four cents every year — tew mind my own business, and tew let other folk's business alone !" The crowd had no more remarks to offer. The answer was entirely satisfactory.

Italian Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Italian Agriculture. What we have so often asserted relative to the conversion of our hill sides into vineyards and gardens, we know to be worthy the attention of all who are interested in Agriculture and Horticulture. We ask attention to the article we publish from the Edinburgh Journal of .Agriculture, as worthy particular notice, believing as we do that our mountain sides, even high up the lofty Sierras, may all in appropriate seasons and under proper care be made fertile and productive. Some of our most beautiful locations for scenery and some of the richest soil can be found upon our mountain slopes; and there can be established homes far happier than those that are found in the palaces of the cities of our land. "We trust a due attention will be given to this subject; now is the time to give heed to it. This is the article referred to: Under the blue heavens and delightful sun of Italy, even its mountains are fertile; and the fruits of the earth are reared with case in every p...

Treatment of the Horse Distemper. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Treatment of the Horse Distemper. By request, and in consequence of having had an unusual number of horses under treatment during the last few weeks, suffering from influences (commonly called distemper) which I believe to be. to a certain extent, contagious, I ask the liberty of communicating to gentlemen who own, or are interested in that noble animal, the horse, my opinion of what predisposes and makes them more susceptible of being affected by it. also what ought to be done to prevent it. The conditions inducing it may exist alontt for some exciting cause may be required for their full development; for instance, gunpowder wants a predisposition to dryness, and peculiar composition in order to take fire from a spark. The most prominent predisposing causes, are sudden and undue exposure to extremes of cold and heat, impure atmosphere in stables, arising from dampness, darkness and bad ventilation. The skin of a horse at ordinary work is raised in temperature in order to maintain o...

Cutting Hay. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Cutting Hay. Messrs. Editors :It was a saying of the sage of Monticcllo, that "all religious opinions would be tolerated in a free country, where reason was left free to combat it," so, the advocating of a wrong theory in agriculture will do no harm, for the judicious tiller of the soil will cull and select what seems to him right; may we claim then the right to combat the correctness of our friend Sargent's theory on the cutting of hay. He says, the "ultimatum of all plants is their seed, therefore, no plant will decay until the seed is perfected in its growth." Plants arc raised for different purposes; some are grown for their seeds, as with the cereals; some for the feed of stock, as the grasses; no man will suppose that plants raised for different purposes require to be harvested at the same time. Our observation and practice confirm us in the opinion, that early-cut hay is far preferable to late. If the seed is matured, a large part of the best of the qualities of the grasses i...

Cultivation of Sandy Soils, Long Island. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Cultivation of Sandy Soils, Long Island. Messrs. Editors: A large portion of the soil of the country is of this class, and very little of it is under what may be considered good cultivation. The greater part is managed on the skinning or starvation system. That these soils possess many advantages, has been long acknowledged by those who have given the subject the least consideration, whilst their peculiar adaptation to the culture of root crops is now generally admitted. The absence of alumina and their porous character rendering them unable, in a great measure, to retain moisture, the best portions of manure are lost, either by percolation or evaporation ; and hence has arisen a great objection to the cultivation of this class of soil, which their cheapness, ease of tillage, and facility for raising early crops, do not seem to have obviated. And yet that such soil can be profitably cultivated has been long known ; witness the barren sand of Belgium and the estates of Coke and Hathe...

STATE AGRICULTURAL CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

STATE AGRICULTURAL CONVENTION. At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the California State Agricultural Society, held on the 2d inst.. it was unanimously Resolved, That a Convention of the Agriculturists of the State be called, to assemble in the city of Sacramento, at 11 a. m., of Wednesday, the 26th of the present month. The objects of such Convention are numerous and important to every cultivator of the soil, every grower of stock, and every manufacturer, in the State. It is hoped that public mass meetings will be held in the evenings oi the days which may be occupied by the sittings of the Convention. Such meetings will be seasons of free discussion, and public speaking by the best talent available. It is earnestly desired that every County or Town Agricultural Society will send delegates, and that where no such societies exist, the inhabitants of the several towns, villages, and precincts, will meet and appoint representatives. Where no such representation can be obtained, ...

Agricultural Convention. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Agricultural Convention. We call the attention of all the Agriculturists of this State to the Convention which is called for the 25th of this month, at the Capital. In order to make the State Fair of the present year prosperous, and to have its influence spread widely over the State, it is important that every portion of the State should be fully represented, so that committes can be selected from every county. These committees should be working men, men that will take hold in earnest and see that every farmer in his district is notified of the Exhibition in season, and be sure that he has no excuse for not having his farm and grounds examined and reported fully. .The success of the farmers can be greatly promoted by an energetic and earnest attention to these matters in season. Will all who are engaged and interested in these matters feel they are a committee for their own neighborhood, to rally a delegation that will be present on the 25th? The cost of traveling is now but a trifl...

Large Sales of Plants. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Large Sales of Plants. An increasing love of flowering plants and a greatly improved taste, are manifested by the public sales of Blooming Plants that are now made in onr principal cities, almost weekly. Handsome collections of Greenhouse Plants are ottered in this city from the fine ardens of Sontgag & Co. and Center & Co., of the Mission, and also from the conservatory of W. C. Walker, Esq.. Golden Gate Nurseries, and from Donnell & Co. At Sacramenlo city, very handsome plants in large quantities are exhibited and sold, and at very satisfactory prices. The last week we saw two large sales in one day —one collection from San Francisco of nearly 300 plants, and a still larger lot of about 450 plants from the extensive gardens of Messrs. Smith, and also Mr. Keehler. These collections embraced every variety of choice plants worthy of growing. Camellias, Geraniums, Lillies, Passion Floweis, Heliotropes, &c.

Dairy Ware--—Water Pipes, [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855

Dairy Ware--—Water Pipes, Manufactures are springing up all over our State. The want of an article creates a supply. The increase of dairies has produced a demand for milk pans, churns, &c. The necessity of conveying water over extended grounds, called for water pipes. The drainage of wet land required pipes also, and the potteries have now extended their business so as to embrace all the articles in demand. We feel it our duty to note these things, and to make them known. Recently at Smith's Gardens, at Sacramento, we saw extensive preparations for the water pipe which was to convey, water over the entire grounds of many acres. We saw the pipes and learned they were made near by. at the pottery on the plank road, above the Fort, where afterwards we saw them, together with earthen churns, drainage pipes, milk pans, water coolers, beer bottles, flower pots, and ware of all kinds, equal to any that can be made in the States. All and everything needed in this line can now b...
