Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855
Flowers. Friend Warren : The charming thoughts that are associated with flowers, with their shapes, colors and fragrance; their poetical uses, their seasons and successions, and all that has been said about them by bookmen and lovers, lie so close at hand, and are so familiar in the aggregates to the world at large, that, like most familiar things, they are generally treated with neglect. Some people don't care about flowers, because they have them growing luxuriantly under their eyes, and because one crop of blossoms is no sooner wasted on the air than another crop comes out, and because, in fact, do w hat you will, you cannot exhaust the flowers, which are endowed with a perpetual vitality, and which without any artificial help, even against all sorts of unneighborly difficulties, will continue to grow and fiorish, and throw off their perfumes as if it were designed in the scheme of creation to show the principle of immortality throughout the minutest works of nature. But with all...
Advantages of Education to Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855
Advantages of Education to Farmers. HENRY S. FRENCH OF EXETER, N. H. Effect of Electricity on V'ge'ation — Plants are the best Lightning Rods — Vegetable Instincts — Plants Seek the Water—Apple Tree Roots 13 feet deep—Roots Seek and Find Food—Climbing Plants have a Choice of Direction — The Hop Twines with the Sun—The Bean the Other Way. Among the agencies invoked by science to the aid of agriculture, electricity should not be forgotton. Surely that mysterious power, which lights up the winter heavens at midnight, making an Aurora Borealis —a northern morning—of glory in place of darkness—which, swifter than winged Mercury from Olympus, nay, swifter than light itself, conveys the thoughts of men around the globe—which bound by some enchantment — by combinations of plates of different metals, has even been compelled to labor at the wheel, and drive the engine at man's bidding—surely this power, this Protean spirit, assume what varied form he may, shall yet be held captive till he rev...
"She's a Sewing Girl." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855
"She's a Sewing Girl." We have frequently heard the above remark, when it excited in our mind a feeling of ineffable contempt for tho worthless piece of humanity that uttered it. It is a source of deep regret to us that it should ever be our duty to dual harshly with any portion of the fair sex who maintain a reputable standing in society ; and there are some, and not a few, who, although their fame may be unspotted, are so deeply imbued with envy, jealousy and hatred towards those of their sex, who happened to be less favored of fortune, but not less perfectly moulded and finished by nature than themselves, that their heads are gall, their souls are wormwood, their breath is pestilence whenever they can make it convenient to speak to them. These are they, who, with a sarcastic leer and scornful turn of the nose, stigmatize as "nothing but sewing girls," such young females as have the moral courage and virtue to work with their hands for an honest livelihood, rather than be dependen...
O, if I had Wealth! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 3 May 1855
O, if I had Wealth! It is a frequent feeling, if not utterance, "0, if I had wealth, how much pleasure it would afford me to contribute largely to all benevolent and religious objects !" To one thus expressing himself, an aged Christian replied: I am not quite so sure of that, and that for several reasons: First, You do not seem to realize that God demands a charity commensurate with what we have, and not with that which we have not, and hence, if we do not come up to this real standard, it is not probable that we could comply with an imaginary one. Second. It is the willing heart which is most commendable in the sight of God; and if the heart refuses when our means are small, it is in vain to excuse our delinquency by a promise of generosity in circumstances which may never occur. Third. This prospective benevolence seems entirely to forget that, by God's blessing, the mite of the poor may go much further than the affluent gifts of the rich ; and if we had no just sense of this, ho...

NO ENEMIES. D. CLARKS, SEN. " He has no enemies!" you say ; I pity his condition, His manhood he has thrown away, His candor and position. " ne has no enemies t" well then, The reason is, he never Has heart enough to act, but when He sees, " which way's the weather." His principles are very light, If he is not contented, To be traduced for doing right, When once he has assented. -He has no enemies V Indeed, Then what has he been doing t Or, what on earth can be his creed, What has ho been pursuing t A truckling—vocilating course— Unmanly, undecided; — His little puny soul is worse Than sixpence twice divided I Then give me one of upright heart, Who dares tho truth to utter, And act a noble, manly part. Though enemies do mutter— A man of earnest, iron wilL Whose enemies are many. And yet whose virtue, strength and skill Is undeterred by any: Whose fearless lovo for truth and right, Keeps falsehood at its distance | And though he may be crush'd by Yet always acts consistent Aye I like...

MEDICAL. IT IS A FIXED 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 admits of a cure, is no longer a matter of doubt; it has been clearly demonstrated by the researches of Lamnec and other pathologists." Db. Carswell, who investigated such matters probubly as thoroughly as any man, says : " Pathological anatomy ha-", 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 are 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 tehich we offer Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, has cured hundreds o...
