State Agricultural College in Michigan. We publish to-day the Bill (in part) passed by the Legislature of Michigan establishing an Agricultural College. Ite provisions are liberal, means will be abundant, and the interest manifested is of a right character, as will insure for it a speedy execution and a successful commencement. An act of this kind by .the legislators of Michigan, reflects the highest honors upon them.

Superior Dairy Cows. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Superior Dairy Cows. There is quite an excitement going on among a portion of stock raisers and dairy men in Ohio, relative to tho merits of certain famous cows now prominently before the public. These cows ara all of very high standard, and their milking qualities are of almost an incredible character. We make extracts—one from the Ohio Farmer, of the cow " Giantess;" and one from tho Michigan Farmer, in response, for the " Aunt Fanny's Cow." Both these specimens are worthy any State, yet Ohio takes the lead. We hope California will give some such examples : [From the Ohio Farmer.l THE BANNER MILK COW. " Willoty Farm," West of New Petersburg, 0., ? November 16, 1854. > Messrs. Editor : At your request, and in the fulfilment of promises made other agricultural friends of some half dozen States, I present you for publication the following statement of the banner milk cow of the Union ! honored with first premiums at our State and National Fairs in October last.

Turnips from Glasgow. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Turnips from Glasgow. In last evening's paper was announced the ar- [ rival oi a vessel from Glasgow with a number of tons of turnips on board: This-' certainty is a" curious thing—turnips from Glasgow! Where is Long Island? Is Oysterpond Point-snowed under ? Or have Sonthfield farmers made money enough, and retired from turnip raising. Times were different when we were young. In the old times—say ten years ago���there was no such place for turnips as the east end of Long Island. Late in the fall—not until the frosts had withered the tops, yet before the ground was so frozen as to anchor what was in it for the winter —the farmer kept all his boys home from school, and spent the day, or several of them, in polling turnips. It was not an occasion much coveted by the boys. Jack Frost, at other times a myth, then was a solemn reality, always standing behind the turnip puller, nipping his nose, pinching his ears, and often fetching him a'hard slap as he bent to his task that brought tear...

Butter and Lard. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Butter and Lard. Some very fine samples of Butter and Lard were exhibited at our late Fair, says the Southern Cultivator, by a lady friend of Tennessee, whose husband has obligingly furnished us with the following directions for making these indispensable household articles: li The butter is six months old. It was churned as it is usually done; the milk washed out of it, then salted and set away in the spring house till the next day, when, with a wooden paddle all the water is worked out; set it in the spring house again for several days, when it is again worked, and one ounce of pulverized loaf sugar is added to each pound of butter; then put into a stone jar, laying a cloth over it, and salt on the cloth, and set in the spring house, where it may be kept through the summer. The Lard was soaked for twelve hours in water and then thoroughly washed in tepid (warm) water; it is then rendered by cooking it until the cracklins are beginning to brown; it is then nicely strained and set a...

Clean Grass Seeds—--Quantity to the Acre. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Clean Grass Seeds—--Quantity to the Acre. In my early days, passed in one of the Eastern States, and daily working on a farm where the plow-fields abounded in rocks and small stones, I was taught, that when a field was to be newly seeded down, it was all-important to have seed that in growing, would prove the truth of the name given it by the seller. This item I have too often seen overlooked by many in Ohio. The additional twenty-five or fifty cents, between the seed purporting to be Timothy, and that proving to be Timothy, is often the rock upon which many farmers have foundered. A little forethought will convince any of us, that if we put good seed upon our land, we are more likely to get good grass, and that its added value will, in one crop, more than twice pay the extra price of pure, over impure seed. Another thing 1 was told when a boy, and have thus far seen no reason to doubt its truth, viz: that if we did not sow upon the land a sufficient quantity of good grass seed, wee...

The California Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

The California Farmer. This issue we send to many who may have never before received the Farmer, or may not have known that such a paper was published. We send it to such here, and in the various sections of the old States, whom we believe and trust will be pleased to receive it, peruse it, and learn the success that is now beginning to flow upon this new country. We believe that many of our distinguished Agriculturists and Horticulturists will not only be pleased to see our journal, but will cheerfully aid in its dissemination, by tl,< ii owl i iptionu Mid tl.«vt of tKoir frionclo. Hv such a measure they will become familiar with California Agriculture and its rapid progress, and they can also communicate to us; by such interchange of knowledge, good will result to all.

Valuable Documents. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Valuable Documents. We have been favored with a valuable package from the Hon. M. P. Wilder, President of the U. S. Agricultural Society, to whom we return thanks. Among the works were the doings of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, U. S. Agricultural Society, full reports, and the !i Proceedings of the Third Session of the American Pomological Society," Each of these works contains valuable statistics, and important data, from which we shall, from time to time, make extracts. The whole United States is largely indebted to President AVilder, for his zeal and devotion to the Science of Agriculture, Horticulture, and Floriculture; not only the United States should we say, but his good influence crosses oceans and is felt the world over. Such men are true patriots and benefactors of a state and nation. From the examination we have made of the proceedings of the Pomological Convention, we find valuable reports upon all the principal fruits grown in each State, the varieties best ...

Pacheco Valley. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Pacheco Valley. During the last week r*ssed from Benicia over to that beautiful spot that lies embosomed amid the hills, that miniature city " Martinez." We were most kindly attended to by the proprietors of the Ferry, Capts. Swain t Coffin, who very promptly furnished us with a fine saddle horse, and with Capt. Coffin for a guide, we commenced a trip to the famed Pacheco Valley. To those who Irave never been among the hills and valleys that so beautify and enrich our State, no just estimate can be had, or any conception of the real magnificence that is scattered in the many valleys now under the highest state of cultivation. Martinez is indeed a pretty place, and its beauty cannot be fully appreciated by those who merely pass it on their trips up river. Surrounded by fertile hills, it is protected from the winds, and lies sheltered from the sun by fine evergreen trees. The soil is rich, and soon, with (he attention given to cultivation, will become one wide spread garden. Upon the ...

Rev. Dr. Scott's Opinion of California Climate and Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Rev. Dr. Scott's Opinion of California Climate and Prospects. We find the following in an eastern exchange, and. corning from so high authority, we cannot better subserve California than by giving it wings and sending it abroad again to bring more citizens to our State. The picture is so true — however dark the present, the future is full of hope: 1. This State is in a very depressed condition at present. The emigration to it is greatly diminished ; but the emigrants now are chiefly such as come to stay. A large proportion are women and children, and returning Californians, who find that they cannot be content to remain in their old homes beyond the mountains. 2. The present depressed state of business may continue for a year or so; but better times arc before us. Improved facilities for communication with the older States, by an inland road, and by propellers, will aid the settlement of the Pacific shore. A vast population is to live on this side of the continent. You may depend up...

The Boston Corn Exchange. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

The Boston Corn Exchange. In our last issue we spoke of the necessity of associations of grain growers and grain dealers, and urged their importance as a measure of safeguard and aid to a prosperous result to all interested in the great staples of our State. We annex the following, which comes to us by last mail, corroborative of all we have said. We copy it from the Boston Journal: Opening of the Boston Corn Exchange,— In accordance with previous notice, this recently organized body of merchants formally opened their line rooms on Commercial street, opposite South Market street. The attendance of dealers in flour, grain, &c, was very large, and a great degree of interest was manifested. The Boston Corn Exchange commenced operations under the most favorable auspices. Numerous samples of grain, flour and meal were exhibited on the tables, and several sales were made and bargains for future operations were consummated conditionally. ' At about the hour of closing, tho Pres...

Pure Wine. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Pure Wine. Read the following and see if there is not an urgent necessity for the manufacture of something better. We are glad to learn that lately several vintners of high reputation have arrived in this country to take charge of some of the manufacturing departments of our Southern plantations. This will rapidly advance these interests and add wealth to our State, by checking importations and preparing for exportation. A London paper gives the following account of the manner in which port wine is manufactured: "When port is required to be manufactured, two separate processes are deliberately and systematically gone through; first, the wine itself is made, and then the bottles are prepared into which the liquor is to be transferred. When the mixture itself is deficient in the fragrancy peculiar to the grape, a boquet is contributed by means of sweet scented herbs, by orris root, elder flowers, or laurel water. A vinous odor is sometimes imparted by small quantities of the liquid kn...

Diseases of Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Diseases of Poultry. In our travels in the country, we had many inquiries relative to a particular disease which carries off great numbers of the various kinds of poultry; and being desirous to make known a remedy which we believe effectual for this disease, we reprint the following communication from Dr. J. B. Phinney, and call the attention of those inteiested to it, at the same time requesting from those who experiment, to send us the results: Messrs. Editors: It may surprise you that a physician should undertake to prescribe for any thing but human beings; but those of us who take an interest in our profession are apt to notice disease wherever we may see it. The mortality amongst poultry has long attracted my attention, and, knowing their great value in this country, I was, out of mere curiosity, led to investigate the matter by repeated dissections of those that have died. I found they all had inflammation, and in most cases ulceration of the crops and bowels. This inflammatio...

The Chinese Question. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

The Chinese Question. The able report of the Hon. Wilson Flint, upon this subject, is a document of great value, and gives evidence of much labor and research in its preparation. It is published in fell in the Herald of the 18th. We make extracts touching the most important feature of this document, —we mean the value of the services of the Chinese as cultivators of our vast tule and swamp lands. We have often alluded to them in this connection, and shall ever believe that they are to be a most valuable means of restoring vast portions of our waste lands to the highest degree of fertility. We annex the following extract from the report, and shall give more at some future day : "In short wherever intercourse is expedient between any two parts of China, no natural impediments are too gigantic, no labor or expense too great, to overcome them. T appeal to the reflecting men of California not to drive out of our borders this mighty labor power. Is it not better, with modern skill in engi...

The Powder Magazine at Benicia. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

The Powder Magazine at Benicia. One spark and all is lost! On a recent visit to the Arsenal, or Armory as it is termed, at Benicia, we learned the astounding fact that the U. S. Government has not yet provided for the safety of the life or property that is now congregated at this important station. We learned these facts by a visit to the building styled ' : Powder Magazine!" and here in a wooden building, exposed to almost every danger, were stored twelve hundred barrels of gunpowder! One can hardly find words to express the astonishment felt at such neglect on the part of our Government to shield life and property. Within a few yards are buildings containing families; a little distant the costly buildings stored with almost millions of ordnance, and a little further the Pacific Works, counting in numbers the largest figures; but more than all this, arc the citizens, whose lives are priceless. We stood near to this little wooden building, and there seemed no danger; but one flash f...

The Wine Trade of France. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

The Wine Trade of France. LETTER FROM DR. GOODRICH U. 8. CONSUL AT LYONS. I propose to give you. in this communication, j some account of the staple productions of France, that may be of interest to many of the readers of the Merchants' Magazine, and especially so. as the vine culture is beginning to attract attention in the Southern and South-western sections of our own country. As you are aware, the two principal products of France are wheat and wine —both entering largely into domestic consumption, and the latter yielding a surplus for exportation. The most productive wine districts of France are the South and South-western, and the least productive is the North-western. The vine grows not only on the level and undulating lands, but also on the hill-sides and mountain summits. These lands are mostly stony, sandy, sterile, worn out, and unfit for wheat growing. During the last three or four years a destructive disease has attacked the vine not only in France, but in Italy. Spain, ...

FROM EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

FROM EUROPE. Dates from Liverpool are to the 10th of March. The previously reported death of the late Emperor Nicholas, is fully confirmed, and his successor, the Emperor Alexander IL, has succeeded peaceably to the Russian throne. The new Emperor has issued a manifesto stating that he will adhere to the policy of his father. Constantine and his other brothers and officers of the Empire had taken oaths of allegiance to the new Emperor. The hopes that were entertained throughout Europe of a peace policy, in accordance with tho supposed personal character of Alexander, were becoming more faint. The influence of the powerful party at the head of whom is the Grand Duke Constantine. it was feared would urge the Czar forward in a course opposed to his better judgment. His first appointments of the Ministry were, however, regarded favorably for peace. Meanwhile, the allies determine to seize the opportunity of the uncertainty which the news of the death of Nicholas must occasion, to presec...

Improved Varieties of the Shellbark. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Improved Varieties of the Shellbark. I. HALE, KEENE, N. H. Although it may not be possible to improve the qualities of our indigenous fruits by cultivation merely, yet the skill and perseverance of man may assist nature to produce new and improved varieties. If the luscious plum is, as somebody has said, a lineal descendant, by a fortunate line, of the sloe ; and if the trees, which bear what is called the English Walnut, may trace their remote parentage to the same ancestor as the trees scattered over Europe, in forests and hedges, bearing small and thick-skulled nuts, there is good reason to believe that the fruit of our own wild walnut or hickory may be at least enlarged in size, and its shell made thinner. If it can he done by any aid furnished by man to nature, it ought to be done, and begun to be done quickly, though the chief benefit may be enjoyed by those who shall como after us. Reason, enlightened by experience, tells us that it can be done, and how it can be done. The fa...

Importance of Forest Trees. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 26 April 1855

Importance of Forest Trees. (The following is an extract from a paper read by Dr. Hawks, before the Geographical Society of New York:) Civilization uses a vast amount of wood, although for many purposes it is being fast superceded; but it is nut the necessary use of wood that is sweeping away the forests of the United States, so much as its wanton destruction. We should look to the consequences of this. Palestine, once well-wooded and cultivated like a garden, is now a desert —the haunt of Bedouins; Greece, in her palmy days the land of laurel forests, is now a desolate waste; Persia and Babylon, in the cradles of civilization, arc now covered beneath the sand of deserts produced by the eradication of their 'forests. It is comparatively easy to eradicate the forests of the North, as they are of a gregarious order —one class succeeding another; but the tropical forests, composed of innumerable varieties, growing together in the most democratic union and equality, arc never eradicated...
