Noble Tennessee in the Field. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Noble Tennessee in the Field. We believe we cannot better serve the cause of agriculture and the mechanic arts than by publishing entire the most excellent address of ExGovernor Brown, delivered at Knoxville, last Oct., on the occasion of the Public Fair held by the State Agricultural College of Tennessee. The Legislature of Tennessee, with a magnanimous liberality, have established an Agricultural College, and given power to establish branches in every county in the State. Here we have an example worthy of imitation. The address should be read by every legislator in our own country, and no farmer can read it without being better prepared for his duties. We especially commend this address to Californians. speak of the gold of California and her climate, &amp;c.; but they prefer Tennessee and her agriculture. They love both, for both are protected by a wise and noble legislation. We trust ere long California will imitate Tennessee and have her college also. We copy the follow...
Oysters! Oysters! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Oysters! Oysters! Capt. Russell, the pioneer of the Shoalwater Bay trade, and the particular pioneer in the Oyster Trade, has just received two more cargoes of these bivalves, for the satisfaction of our citizens, and to please their increasing taste for the good things of—the waters. The last two cargoes consist of some 5,000 baskets of the best oysters yet brought to market, and we learn that Captain R. is planting them on the Oakland side of the bay. A friend. at our elbow asks us, (as we tell of planting oysters.) if they will grow? We assure our friend that nothing increases faster by planting than oysters. Some may think but little of the announcement of the oyster trade on this coast, but it is an important fact. Thousands and tens of tnousands of dollars are thus retained in California, giving employment to vessels and men, that otherwise would go to the East for preserved oysters. Now we have them fresh and save the gold in the State. Strawberries are Coming.—We saw fine ri...
Address of Ex-Governor Aaron V. Brown. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Address of Ex-Governor Aaron V. Brown. Ladies and Gentlemen : You do wrong in calling me to address you on the present occasion : Wrong to tne for want of previous notice, and consequently for want of proper preparation: Wrong to that elaborate and able Address to which you have just listened, no word of which I would obliterate from your recollections: Wrong to this noble occasion, when everything around us is speaking to you in language more eloquent and effective than any which I can hope to utter. The farmer is here, speaking to you through the rich and varied productions of his fields; the manufacturer is here, speaking to you through his curiously .wrought and costly fabrics; the mechanic is here, speaking to you through the wonderful ingenuity of his peculiar art ; but, above all, the fair daughters and matrons of East Tennessee arc here, speaking to you in the delicate texture of their own handiwork, and shedding over the exhibitions of the day, the light of their presence a...
Speech of Hon. C. W. Cook, [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Speech of Hon. C. W. Cook, of the assembly. The following glowing extract is so full of true enthusiasm of the right kind, so full of earnest pleas for truth and right, that we insert it with much pleasure. We wish all our legislators would mark the great boundaries of nature, and not only boundaries, but the wonderful revealments that this country affords, and do what they can to promote their development, and thus place our State before the world, as grand and glorious as nature designed her to be. Wo note with much pleasure the zeal of the honorable member in behalf of all great interests of the State; they are worthy of just commendation. EXTRACT FROM THE SPEECH OF MR. COOK, ON THE QUESTION OF A BOUNDARY LINE FOR STANISLAUS COUNTY. Sut: Our possessions on the Pacific are the wonder of the world. California is an anomaly in the history of nations. '1 here is not now and never has been another country like it. She is not, from Siskiyou to San Diego, one republic only, but a valley...
Evergreens. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Evergreens. We publish the following article upon evergreens with the hope that a proper attention will be given to this subject in California ; for here we have some of the finest specimens of evergreens that can he found in the world. In addition to the rules laid down by Mr. Cross, we would add one, and we believe the all important one —" the time of planting." We believe the best—we would say the only time that eveigreens (we mean more particularly all the tribes of pines.) should be planted, is when their buds are just starting into new growth: remove them then, and follow the rules of Mr. Cross, as alluded to, and success is certain. We really hope all who are laying out grounds will reflect upon this matter before their whole space is occupied. In looking around among the enlightened farmers of the Empire State, I am sorry to see so little taste manifested for planting evergreens. Some pretend to say they are good for nothing but to look at. This a great mistake. They are use...
Hints on Grafting. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Hints on Grafting. Much is written in every horticultural journal upon grafting, and each treatise of fruits gives all the information desired, numerously illustrated with cuts. Yet a lamentable ignorance exists among farmers and many fruit culturists upon the subject. It is not our intention to give the mode of the operation, but to say when it should be performed, and the stocks applicable to each kind. Any work on horticulture may inform sufficiently a novice who possesses an average amount of skill and care, so that he may be able to graft successfully. The first step to be taken is to obtain scions of those varieties which are desired; they can be cut from bearing trees, or from young plants, if genuine, between which there be no choice, only that the shoots should be well ripened. They may be cut during March or April, or at any time the buds commence to swell, indicating the approach of Spring. They may be kept till wanted in a moist cellar, partly imbedded in sand. There are...
Address of the Hon. Edward Everett, [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Address of the Hon. Edward Everett, . AT THE DEDHAM CATTLE SHOW. Remarks at the dinner of the Norfolk County Agricultural Society, at Vedham, on the 261 Aof September, 1849, Hon. Marshall P. Wilder, president of tht society, in the chair. After making his personal acknowledgments to the Chair and to Mr. Webster, Mr. Everett went on as follows: — You have been pleased, Mr. President, to inform the company that lam a Norfolk man. I am, sir. 1 was born in Dorchester, and my ancestors, from the first settlement of the country, were born and bred in this prosperous town ol Dedham. lam not ashamed of my descent. My forefathers were humble men, farmers and mechanics, and pursued a most unambitious career. They left nothing to their descendants of either fame or fortune, but a good name. But as times go, he is not the worst citizen who gives himself with unpretending industry to a private career; content to embark in the ship of state as a private passenger, and if need be, to work his pass...
Will Good Bread ever be a Common Blessing in this Country? [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Will Good Bread ever be a Common Blessing in this Country? We fear not till some more efficient steps are taken by the managers of the various agricultural societies than they seem as yet to have even dreamed of. Something more is needed to reach the root of the difficulty than the award of a premium for the best bread at an exhibition. Particulars are as important in such a case as a minute description of the process of making butter, such as has frequently been given to country societies by successful competitors for prizes. The kind of practical knowledge that shall enable others to attain the desired result, is the very .thing most needed, and which seems thus far to have been overlooked. , A recent exhibition in London shows that in this matter of bread making as well as many other of the arts of life, " knowledge is power." It was by a French firm in that city, showing the method by which, by a peculiar modification of the fermenting process, the amount of bread from a given w...
"ALL, IS NOT DARKNESS YET." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
"ALL, IS NOT DARKNESS YET." Though shadows drear, should cloud our sky, And griefs our inward peace destroy, Some rainbow tint may soon come by And bring to us sweet drops of joy. Though brightness may depart awhile, And darkness o'er the present roll, A star may rise, with happy smile Illume the desert of the souL The gorgeous shades of sunset hour Dissolve in twilight's sombre wave Till Luna, radiant in her power, Wakes, Phoenix-like, from Sol's dark grave. The friends of youth's own sunny tune May all depart, one after one, Yet in the hours of manhood's prime New forms supply the hearts now gone I When flowers of gay, delicious spring, Soon wither 'neath an early doom, The summer days profusely bring A richer and more lasting bloom. When fondly cherished hope decays, And dreams dispelled in waking thought 5 When treacheries black, our truet betraya • Our friendship, by a traitor sought j E'en in this time, 'neath sorrow's sway, When heart, and soul, and mind are bowed, A hand may...
OUR LITTLE DAUGHTER ELLA. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
OUR LITTLE DAUGHTER ELLA. We bad one little daughter, Sent to ue from above, Our darling little Ella Wag formed to bless and love; So peaceful, innocent, and true, Bo gentle and so dove-like, too. She came, our home to gladden For two short fleeting years; She's gone, our hearts will sadden, Our eyes grow dim with tears Whene'er we think of that dear one, So early called, her sweet life done. She filled our hearts with sunshine, She filled our home with love, Before the Angels called her To dwell with them above; Before we laid her down to rest, Within her little "coffin chest." Dear Ella looked so sweetly When laid upon her bier, We thought her far too lovely To be a dweller here; Too fair to be of mortal birth; Too fair to be a child of earth. B.
Peeps Behind the Curtain. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
Peeps Behind the Curtain. Domestic happiness ! thou only bliss Ot Paradise that has survived the fall I Though lew now taste thee unimpaired and free, , Or, tasting, long enjoy tliee; too infirm, Or too incautious, to preserve thy sweets Unmixed with drops of bitter. Cotoper's Task. Home, sweet home! around which centre the hopes, the holiest aspirations, and the dearest affections of the human heart! 'To be homeless, the greatest calamity; to possess a home, in the true sense of the word, the greatest happiness of earth ! There are happy homes, hundreds of them, in our land; and alas! there are also hundreds of homes seemingly happy, where selfishness, or willful waywaidness, a want of forbearance, or a teasing,* fretful, fault-finding spirit, in one or Other of the married pair, has destroyed all love and all happiness, and the matrimonial fetters are eating like a canker into the very soul. Not most frequently, by great derelictions from duty, is domestic happiness destroyed ; it...
I.—THE GOOD HOUSEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
I.—THE GOOD HOUSEKEEPERS. "Ihave brought home a new book to read to you this evening, dear Mary," said Edward Hervey to his young wife, as they rose from the teatable, "we are fairly settled now, and can begin to enjoy our home? " Oh, f shall be so glad if you can only spend your evenings at home," exclaimed Mrs. Hervey. Her husband smiled at her enthusiasm—it nearly equalled his own. "I must sometimes be gone an hour or two after tea," he said ; v but most of these long winter evenings 1 hope to spend at home. Home I How sweet that word sounds. It is a long. long time since I have had a home, and now — Hervey's emotion prevented his compleiing the sentence. Thoughts of his long years of orphanage—his struggles with the world—and his heart-loneliness, contrasted with the present blissful fruition of all his fond daydreams, choked his utterance, the chrystal teardrop bedimmed his eye—and turning abruptly away he left the room. Mary Ellsworth, the object of Hervey's choice, his "gentl...

" Oh, lam so happy I " a little girl aid, As she sprang, like a lark, from a low truuble bed ; " 'Tis morning—bright morning ! good morning, papa 1 Oh, give me one kiss for good morning, mama I Only just look at my pretty canary, Chirping his sweet good morning to Mnry; The tun is peeping straight into my eyesGood morning to you, MUter Sun, for you rise Early to wake np my birdie and me, And make us as happy as happy can be." "Happy you may be, my dear little girl," As the mother struck softly a clustering.curl— " Happy you can be —but think of the One Who wakened this morning, both you and the sun." The little girl turned her bright eyes with • nod— " Ma, may I say, then, good morning to God t" " Yes, little darling one, surely you may, Kneel as you kneel every morning to pray." Mary knelt down, with her eyes Looking up—earnestly—into the «kies ; And two little hands that were folded together, Softly she laid on the lap of her mother, " Good morning, dear Father in He...
The Standard of Female Education should be Raised. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 12 April 1855
The Standard of Female Education should be Raised. We are pleased to notice that the importance of raising the standard of female education and of making provisions for that end. is beginning to attract the attention of some of the legislatures of the States, and of the more intelligent classes of citizens throughout the country. It seems to be thought by many that our daughters should have the opportunity of acquiring an education of as high a grade intellectually, as our sons have had provided for them in the several colleges throughout the Union; and that it is not wise nor in accordance with a just sense of the best interests of society, that the latter institutions should receive State and other patronage and material aid, while the education of females is left almost wholly to the contingency of female enterprise. The happy improvement in publicopinion which is indicated in the demands made in our legislatures for Female Seminaries is evident in several other forms, and especi...
