MEDICAL._ IT IS A PIKED FACT, CONSUMPTION CAN BE CURED! SIR JAMES CLARK, Physician to Queen Victoria, and one of the most learned and skillful men of the age, in his "Treatise" on Consumption, says: "That Pulmonary Consumption ndm'ts of a cure, is no longer a matter of doubt; it has been clearly demonstrated by the researches of Lssnnec and other pathologists." Da. Carswell, who investigated such matters probably as thoroughly as any man, says : " Pathological anatomy Ims, perhaps, never afforded more conclusive evidence in proof of the curability of a disease than it has in that of tubercular phthisis," (pulmonary consumption.) It Is no Fiction. These statements arc made by men who have demonstrated what they say, time after time, in the crowded hospital, and in the truth telling dissecting room. They are from men who have no possible motive for publishing what is untrue, or emblazoning falsehoods. The Remedy which we offer Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, has cured hundreds of ...

The Convention. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

The Convention. We publish to-day the result of the State Agricultural Convention. We have not received the official report from the Recording Secretary, which wo much regret, for we anticipated a very able and detailed report for this issue. AYe trust hereafter we shall receive official reports of both the Executive and the Society's doings. Sixteen counties were duly represented, and although there was not a large convention, those present were earnest. About one hundred and fifty were present at the evening sessions. We trust each county will now call meetings and take action respecting their share of the labor. To make a State Society efficient, tho counties should be active auxiliaries; and it will be observed that committees are to be selected in each county, to co-operate with the Executive, in the preparatory steps for the Fair, and as Committees to examine Farmt, Gardens, Nurseries, 6fC, It is also expected this committee will procure members to the State Society.

Sonoma County Meeting. We would call the attention of the citizens of Sonoma county 10 the meeting of the Agriculturists of that county and vicinity, which is to be holden on Saturday, May 5. We would urge all that can possibly attend to be present, as it is ■very important. Besides the organizing of a Society, many important measures for the protection and encouragement of these interests will be brought forward. Measures should be taken to prepare for the State Fair and to correspond with other counties; also to enroll members to the State Society, to gather statistics, and various duties connected with the best interests of Connty and State. We shall hope for a good report. Friends from other counties that can, should be present. County Meetings should be held in every section of our State, to make preparation for the State Exhibition, and we would be glad to receive such communications as are needed, from the several counties, and give them a place in our columns.

Strawberries.—Fragaria. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

Strawberries.— Fragaria. This most luscious fruit, which is now being presented to our citizens in its most tempting forms daily at our markets and saloons, is worthy of more than a mere passing thought. Tts wondrous size, its rich fragrance, and its other excellent qualities, attract the notice of the passers by; the mouth waters, some are tempted to buy and eat, others bear away the fairest and best, as a prize; the fruit is consumed, and the circumstance, however pleasant, is soon forgotten. But this fruit —its advent into California, its new and remarkable features, its increased productiveness in size and quantity, the habit it assumes as a perpetual bearer—these are subjects that should arrest the attention of every fruit grower in California. It is perfectly astonishing to notice among the masses of cultivators at the present day, how little they are acquainted with the character and capabilities of this fruit — a fruit that is so much needed and would find so ready a sale in...

Shipment of Grain. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

Shipment of Grain. The shipment of a cargo of Flour and Wheat to New York, one year since, excited some surprise, and many doubts were expressed as to the safety or feasibility of the speculation. The present year presents the subject in a tangible and permanent form, and tne matter has beeu begun in earnest. We have often been asked what shall be done with our surplus produce, and our answer has invariably been — l- A way will be opened." It should be borne in mind that the last season, after much exertion, plans were perfected and means provided to furnish funds; to advance on tho shipments of wheat to the East. Few only tried the experiment, and they did well; had more entered into the work, a great good would have been accomplished, and the price of grain would have paid the grower. The present aspect of our export market should give great encouragement to our farmers and grain growers. The time has come when the ports of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, shall see ...

State Agricultural Convention. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

State Agricultural Convention. In accordance with previous notice the California State Agricultural Convention assembled at the Council Chamber at 11 o'clock Wednesday morning, 25th ult. The meeting was called to order by 0. C. Wheeler, on whose motion C. I. Hutchinson, Esq., was appointed President of the Convention, who, on assuming the Chair, addressed the Convention substantially as follows: Gentlemen of the Convention: I thank you for this bestowal of honor in calling me to preside over the deliberations of the first State Agricultural Convention ever assembled in California. A brighter and more inviting field than this has never presented itself for occupancy. Richer and more abundant producing soils than are furnished by the rich valleys of California tho world docs not afford. The seasons of no section or country on this or the other continent are perhaps as well adapted to permanent or experimental agricultural pursuits as are tho seasons of California. It is appropriate th...

Horticulture and Floriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

Horticulture and Floriculture. There is no better evidence of the prosperity of a village or a city than the improvements around home. Go where you will, that city or village where the homes are made attractive and beautiful, carries the best evidence of prosperity. That city or village where you find every, mansion or cottage improved and beautified, returns into the treasury a liberal tax for tho increased value of property, and this tax is again paid out to improve and beautify streets and squares, or build schoolhouses, hospitals, or other needed improvements. Thus one improvement stimulates another, and the whole publia is benefited. Compare any two cities or villages, one improved and the other neglected, and you have the evidence before you—the one rises as the other falls. We can contrast several of our cities and note the great difference, Many of our fine city residences seem entirely neglected, and such as might present a beautiful appearance outside have the ground left ...

Report on some of the Diseases and Insects Affecting Fruit Trees and Vines. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

Report on some of the Diseases and Insects Affecting Fruit Trees and Vines. THADDEUS WILLIAM HARRIS Professor of Entomology of the Mass, HorticuUural Society. (From the Proceedings of the American Pomological Society, we copy below Dr. Harris' valuable treatise upon the various insects that infest fruit trees, alluded to in our last, and although only few of these have yet appeared in California, we believe we can do a great service to our orchardists by presenting this invaluable document entire, and thus lay before them a treatise for future use, for in all probability we shall find them in coming years among the trials we shall have to contend against:) SWOLLEN BRANCHES OF THE APPLE TREE. On the 31st of May. the Hon. M. P. Wilder sent to me some pieces of the limbs of an apple tree, which were singularly enlarged in diameter to the extent of several inches. He found the disease to prevail on the north side of the tree, white the south side was almost entirely free from it The spe...

Valuable Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

Valuable Recipes. Nice Pancakes for Supper.—These are made of eggs, flour and milk. The just proportions are one table spoonful of flour to each egg. To make small pancakes, beat a couple of eggs thoroughly, and add sweet milk. Then take a couple of table spoonfuls of flour, work into a thin paste and ductile batter, by adding the milk and eggs and a little salt. Grease the pan with a piece of sweet lard, and stir briskly to prevent adhering to the bottom. When the under side is sufficiently browned, turn it. If this is found to be too solid, add more eggs, and use less flour. A slight sprinkle of grated nutmeg will be an addition.— Prairie Farmer. Sugar Pie. —The Ohio Cultivator has this recipe for a pie:—Cover your pan with good paste, spread over it a layer of sweet butter, then sugar enough to cover the bottom; then pour in a half pint of rich cream, in which a table spoonful of flour has been first stirred, and it is ready for the oven.

A TRIBUTE TO QUEEN FLORA. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855

A TRIBUTE TO QUEEN FLORA. MRS. K. A. WRIGHT Oh 1 bright is the mountain, the ralley and plain, For Flora hath come with her glittering train; All smiling and lair, —and most happy are we To join in the song that gives welcome to thee. Thou comest right early thy sceptre to sway, And gladden the hearts of the grave and tho gay, Thy subjects most loyal this truth will attest, A favorite thou art —the loveliest and best. T was full six months ago when we saw thee depart, And a tear of regret swelled up from the heart; With ill-concealed sorrow due homage we paid The dreary old monarch who reigned in thy stead. We wish him no harm, if he will not intrude In the family circle with manners so rude, We have this against him, wherever he goes, To the poor of his realm no lenity shows. Unlike thy dear self—no cottage so mean But is cheered with thy presence—thy foot-prints are seen In the mendicant's hut—and thy carriage of state Stands as oft at the door of the low as the great t In age, it...
