THE THOMPSON ROAD STEAMER. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

THE THOMPSON ROAD STEAMER. On last Tuesday, a rather strange-look-ing affair might have been seen traveling along the railroad bridge of the C. P. R. R. at Oakland Point, and bucking, turning and progressing over the sandy streets of our sister city. The Tide Land Reclamation Company had taken their Thompson Road Steamer from the U. 8. bonded warehouse, and sent it across the Bay, where it is soon to be tested as to its powers and capabilities for plowing. The evolutions gone through on this occasion, were principally to satisfy the curiosity of a few persons* and to " give a ride" to a few privileged individuals, among whom was one of the proprietor! of the Pkess. This steamer, the first on the coast, has been brought hither through the enterprise of Mr. G. D. Roberts, President of the Tide Land Reclamation Company, who is not slow in going for a good thing when he sees it. With the steamer was sent a gang of eight heavy plows, with the necessary machinery for operating them. We ha...

Mechanical Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

Mechanical Progress. Heat Kadiation as Affected by Bubface. —In one of his last papers, Prof. Magnus gives experiments made with platinum plates instead of plates easily oxidizable, in order to avoid possible error. He found that "when surface is otherwise the same, inequalities may exist without any increase in the radiation. When, on the contrary, a plain platinum plate which had boon heated by «• glass-blower's lamp and was quite soft," was roughened by means of fine emery paper the radiation was doubled. A\ hen a platinum plate was covered with a thin plate of spongy platinum, by spreading 11 thin layer of ammonio-ehlorideof platinum upon it, and then strongly heating, without treatment with nitric acid, it indicated seven times as much radiation as before being treated with spongy platinum. The author concludes that the increase of radiation with a roughened surface depends essentially on the refraction which heat experiences on its emergence from the surface of a radiating bod...

Scientific Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

Scientific Progress. Dekp Sea Mud.—Following are some paragraphs from an article in a late number of Nature:— "Dr. C. W. Giimbel has recently published an important paper, containing an account of some highly interesting investigations on deep-sea mud. Sir K. Murchison and Professor Huxley provided him with a large quantity of mod, taken up from the Atlantic at lat 29' 36' 5-t' N., and long. 18 19' 4H" W., at a depth of about 2,850 fathoms. This he first cleared, by long-continued washing, from all seasalts soluble in water; then he divided it, by filtering, into three parts. In the first, Foraminifera and larger organisms predominated; the second consisted of a sediment easily distinguished from the first, fine but heavy; the third was fine and flaky, remaining lightly suspended in water, and consisting almost exclusively of Bathybius, Coeeoliths, Coeeospheres, together with other organisms of the smallest kind (Diatoms, Radiolaria, Spongespicules, and a very few of the smallest Fo...

Bound East. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

Bound East. [WRITTEN FOB THE PBIHB] Once more I resume my travels, this time with my face turned steadily eastward. Over the Western Pacific to Sacramento, over the Central Pacific to Ogden, I traverse again the regions Which I have already described at length in previous letters, and on which I therefore dwell no further in this communication. I received, as ever, the best treatment from the Railroad Company, which rendered the trip one of pleasure., Ogden to Omaha. From Ogden I pass over, to me, neAv ground, and am made the recipient of the hospitality of a new company. I find, however, no diminution in the comfort of the accommodations or the attentiveness of the employees. I have made the acquaintance of several of the officers of the road. I may be permitted to mention the names of the efficient Land Commissioner, Mr. (). F. Davis, and of the Chief Engineer and Superintendent, General T. E. Sickles. Gen. Sickles has succeeded Col. Hammond. He is a genial, pleasant gentleman and...

Important to Tide Land Owners. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

Important to Tide Land Owners. EditobPress: —Some, perhaps all, of the tide land islands, lying near the mouth of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, are naturally of a very porous nature, and, until consolidated by draining and settling, may not inaptly be likened to huge pieces of sponge, the edges of -which are covered by a coating of clayey sediment, very nearly impervious to water. Upon the upper ends of some of these islands, sediment has accumulated to such an extent as to form quite a firm soil for several rods inland; while upon the lower ends, in many instances, it is simply a thin layer, extending but a few yards from the shore. Where this sediment is of sufficient depth to reach some feet below the bottom of the ditch or excavation, made in constructing levees, and is of sufficient consistency at this depth to keep out water, the levees may, if desirable, be located inside of the ditch; but upon the lower ends of these islands, where this coating is not more than thre...

Granular Fuel. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

Granular Fuel. Editors Press: —In any country in which-firewood is worth from seven to ten dollars a cord, it is an object worthy the consideration of every land owner, to avail himself of every means to turn to the best account every particle of wood growth, the product of his lands, that can be converted into a marketable article of fuel, at a value greater than the cost of production. Is it generally known and understood that the now almost useless brush-wood and willows of large [ tracts of lands bordering the rivers and sloughs of our valleys, can be converted into a compact, valuable fuel for light fires, or for igniting the more solid materials heavy ones either of wood or coal ? The preparation of such a fuel as this, consists in subjecting the willows or other brushwood to the action of a machine similar in construction to an cutter, but of greater strength, by which it is cut into lengths equal to about twice the diameter of the brushwood used. It is put upon the market, o...

CULTURE OF OPIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

CULTURE OF OPIUM. [ Written fob the Press.] From my own experience in the cultivation of the poppy for the production of opium during my residence in the opium districts of Hindoostan, and from my knowledge of the climate of California, I am convinced that its culture in this country would be attended with an almost incredible success financially. Whilst the average produce per acre in India is only from 30 to 85 pounds,—the climatic influences affecting it,— the yield in Asia Minor is 70 pounds. This is owing to the greater certainty of sufficient moisture, without its being excessive, and to the plant ripening sufficiently before the extreme heat sets in. Six and a quarter acres in the United States has produced 500 pounds, or 80 pounds per acre. One hundred and fourteen poppies in California yielded 174 grains, or equal to 77 pounds per acre. As the plant produces the opium in less than three months from the time it is planted, there is not a doubt that, wish some irrigation, two...

THE RAMIE PLANT IN CALIFORNIA [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

THE RAMIE PLANT IN CALIFORNIA There are for sale, here, over 200,000 roots of this tine textile plant. It grows like any other nettle in our climate. There is said to be an abundant demand in England for the raw fibre at 10 cents per pound. The great supply at present is from Asia. Louisiana has been cultivating it several years; but it has not made much progress there for want of some cheap machine to prepare the fibre for market. We have recently been informed that a cheap and practical machine, invented by M.Lefranc. of New Orleans, does this work well and very cheaply. But our U. S. Commissioner of Agriculture, in his Report for 1860, does not mention it, and our California ramiegrowers have not brought one to exhibit here, as an evidence of its existence and practicability. These omissions, and the general disinclination among our ranchmen to go into anything but wheat, make it difficult to sell the ramie roots. Still, as an evidence that those who have been instrumental in int...

A SINGULAR LOOKING PLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

A SINGULAR LOOKING PLOW. A very singular looking plow has been on Exhibition the past week at the Office of the Pacific Rural Press. It is called the Butler Plow;" being patented by him, and manufaeturaVsolely in all the States and Territories, except ten counties in Ind., and in the state of Oregon, and California, by Hall & Speer, of Pittsbnrg. Pa. I take the liberty to extract from a lengthy article in the Modern Farmer, of Pittsburg, the following, as the views of several gentlemen of Agricultural implement notoriety; and especially of Alex. Speer of the above named firm, who is called the "Plow Prince" of the country. "When we say that there have been a thousand improvements on forms of moldboard, all more or less oval or convex—we are under rather than over the number,— we have yet the ftrnt attempt heretofore to record of a "straight mold-board." The plow of which we write has a share cut, a straight landside, and a straight moldboard, standing vertically at an an...

WOMAN'S INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

WOMAN'S INFLUENCE. The aim of every true mother should be to inspire the little ones committed to her euro with desires for truth and goodness; and to impress upon their plastic minds the great need of temperance in diet, dross and amusement. Example is always before precept; therefore to become a wise counsellor, one should practice the virtues recommended, or half his teaching will be in vain. In a small communnity there lived, many years ago, a large-souled woman, who by her superior mind and attractive manners, Avon the admiration and esteem of all. Her views on most subjects avcic so far in advance of the age, that she was looked upon with suspicion by the ignorant, and Avith intense wonder and interest by the more thoughtful. Forgetful of self in that noble desire engrafted in her nature to improve the condition of the race, she became successful as a teacher, writer, and lecturer; instructing mothers in physiological laAvs (having been educated at a medical college), and her ...

CUPRESSUS LAWSONIANA. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

CUPRESSUS LAWSONIANA. The. liawson Cyi>ress is a native of this coast, and may be found growing in its natural stateliness and beauty, from the foot of Mount Shasta, through Oregon, into Washington Territory. There is no finer evergreen in existence, to our notion, belonging to the hardy species of conifers. It deserves to be a much more common tree in our lawns and gardens. The tree adapts itself to any position and exposure, and is said to even stand the severe frosts and cold of the Northern States, East, and in Europe, better than many of their hardy evergreens. Its great merit has been distinctly recognised, it is said, since the destructive frosts of 1867, in the Eastern States and Europe, and it is now unanimously awarded a high position lor its hardy character and elegance. One writer says: "For despite any amount of cold or heat, damp or drouth, it maintains throughout, from circumference to the center, a hue of the freshest green. This constancy in a plant of th...

THE OREGON TEA TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 14 January 1871

THE OREGON TEA TREE. The Ceonathus Oreqonus, sometimes called the Oregon tea-tree, is spoken of in the Willamette Fanner as a very desirable ornamental plant for the lawn or garden, and will grow to the size of a very large shrub or small tree. It is a native of Oregon, and flourishes in the timber neighborhood about Oregon City, in the thickets about Vancouver and in many other localities. It is an evergreen, its leaves, in winter (uniting a balsamic fragrance. It exhibits blossoms in May or June, which are white, of strong magnolia fragrance and not unlike those of the lilac. It should be trimmed to a single standard. Tho editor of the paper above-named says of it: —"Wo have passed through large tracts of land on the upper Columbia, covered with this plant, when it was in blossom, and its fragranco was so overpowering that we were glad to escape and permit 'its sweetness to waste on the desert air.'" There are many native plants, trees and shrubs, as yet scarcely known except to b...
