For the Faimsr . PATRIOTISM . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

For the Faimsr . PATRIOTISM . Nothing can . be of more-importance than patriotism , love of country . We intend to gather from the current sentiment of the day a few ideas . on this subject . That there is less patriotism now in the Republic than at any former time , is felt to be too much the fact by all of us . With the great body of the people it seems less needed . Our greatness and the . power of our form of government is to them a sufficient guarantee of our safety , sufficient to absolve us from any individual responsibility , as to the opinions we hold , the vote we give , the tone of character we exercise on the political aspects that are ever be & re „ us . We do not consider that , it -is ^§| a | r ; degrees that the integrity of a nation it ^ dernnned , that an evil step once t ^ 4 S ^ ret ^ eementisalJiJost impossible . A . precedent once established it becomes a ^ standard of political action ^ ever afterwards , ; ind thus -dowhwardjwe fall until a Marius a...

This , renders the study of entomology almost a necessity ; for if without check , this evil continues to increase , the daymay come , sooner than many will believe , when the important agricultural products will be so diminished , from thi » cause alone , as to produce * great dearth and suffering , and when many of the best and most Yaluable fruits will-be a rarity , if their production is not rendered impossible . - Note , in ; verification , all the varieties of the plum , - gage , nectarine ,, and cherry fruit , which , from the ravage s of the different genera of curculio , or the weevil , are now rare , and seldom come to perfection ; and even one species of this destructive insect , has lately deposited its eggs i...

*» The Past / Winter . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

*» The Past / Winter . We speak of the winter as past , but we may yet find it lingering in the lap ofSpring . In a large portion of the winter months , the weather was unusually mild , —more so that we have witnessed for years in the same season . Many learned men have endeavored to account for this extraordinary weather on ; natural principles ; but we have seen no speculations . upon the subject possessing a deeper interest than those of Hon . Thomas B . Butler , a judge of the Supreme Court of Connecticut , a notice of which we find in The ffo-m esteafl , a Valuable ^ agricul-tural-paper , published in Hartford , Connecticut . Judge But er ; : tokes the ^ following points : Fitst , There is nothing peculiar oHocal in the advance of vegetation of this season .

iMfat * - .- ¦ A Feep Into a X-IFID ^ Mans Stomach . The case of Alexis St . Martin is one with which the public , and especially those who have given particular attention to the subject of physiology in connection with medical science , are already familiar . It is indeed a most extraordinary one—perhaps we might say , the most extraordinary one known in the annals of surgery . St . Martin is a- € & nad * an , of French descent . In the year 1825 , when he waaeighteenyearsold , and while employed in the service of the American Fur Co ., in Canada , he was accidentally wounded by . the discharge of a musketloaded with duckehot , as he calls it , but which must , we infer , have been about the size ofbuck shot . He informed us that he did not know or feel that he had been hit , but a moment afterwards he felt a cojd chill , as if a pail of cold water had been dasbedoyerhim . The charge , enteringlaterally from behind , passed quite through his body , tearing off the muscl...

STATE FAIR . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

STATE FAIR . ¦ ; % \ u piwofe gmmx . ; ^ i *» . SPRINGFIELD , A Pit It 1 , 8 8 . At the meeting of the Executive Committee on the 9 th of March , Centralia , in Southern Illinois , was selected as the point at which the Pair of the Illinois State Agricultural Society , for 1858 , should be held . There were applications for the fair from Jacksonville / Peoria , Freeport , and Centralia . We believe it has been generally understood that the fair would be held in Southern Illinois so soon as a point could be generally agreed upon in that section of the State , and where the conveniences to make it effective could be obtained . A general desire was manifested in the South that the fair should be held at Centralia , aud the people there and through that section of Illinois , by their committee , satisfied the Executive Committee that suitable grounds would-be furnished , together with all the fixtures necessary for the fair , and also other provisions made by which the multitude expecte...

Mailer for Gratulattan . The press of this State / without a sin-. gle dissentient , so far as . we know , have approved of the location ojE the State Fair at Centralia . While we are glad that this is so , we are sure this approbation springs from a conviction that the loca-. tion was made as a matter of justice , and for the best interests of the State and the Society . We thank them for this expression ot their convictions ; and we ask of them further , that they will give their useful and efficient aid and further labors to secure the success of the coming State Fair . We want every portion of the State represented there—not only of its citizens , but of its productions . —¦ We Want Northern Illinois , with her specimens of valuable agricultural implements , machinery , products of the farm , animals , to be there .

« . The Satire Raspberry . ' [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

« . The Satire Raspberry . We have been informed that in the southern part of this State , there is considerable variety in the native raspberiy . One gentleman informed us that he had found on one occasion , hunting in the woods , a fine black , well flavored , small seeded raspberry , of the black cap variety , which measured threequarters of an inch in diameter . We allude to this matter now , because there is greufc diversity of opinion in regard to the raspberries offered for cultivation in the West . Brinkle s Orange is the only kind of imports ed stock that promises , at all well without winter protection . A native raspberry , of large size , good flavor , tolerably free from large seeds , hardy , prolific , would be a great desideratum . Will our friends in Southern Illinois , the coming season , see if they cannot find among the multitude of raspberries to be found on the edges of old fields , or about fallen and rotten trees , specimens of fruit , such as is desired ?—and...

&amp;lt;• Domestic Hints . Haras , at a cost oE 15 cents a pound , are cheaper food than beef at ten cents . Boiling is by far the most economical mode for cooking meats . Butter is the most concentrated animal fat . When 3 - ou buy goods on a credit , you must pay more for them than if you were to pay cash . It is very pleasant to dress well ; but not pleasant when one thinks that the clothes on his back belong to another , and that ho will be called to pay for . thein when they arc worn out .

When should Produce be taken to Market ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

When should Produce be taken to Market ? MR . EDITOR : —This is an important question to farmers- It is believed that as a general fact , produce should be taken to market vhen it is ready ior market . We have been holding on to our last year s crops , and we have not bettered ourselves . If we had sold our wheat last summer , as soon as we could have got it harvested and threshed , we would have secured double the price we can now . We should have saved too the shrinkage and waste . I know of several farmers who will not do the same thing over again the coming season . They are already looking out for threshing machines , so that their work will not he delayed . The prospect now seems to he that there will be a great crop of winter wheat ; aud we do hope that it will bring a price that will pay . reasonably . I know that the prospect is a poor one for a foreign demand ; but it may be that money being plentier in the Eastern cities , it will , to some extent , be invested in wheat ....

These trials . also enable the committee to form opinions of . the value of machines , which cannothave a proper basis when opinions have to be made up on an examination of the machines alone , on the Fair Grounfls .

Tie Potato Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

Tie Potato Crop . Editor of the Farmer : —It is said that the potato crop of the United States in -value , ranks not very far in value from the crop of wheat and corn . At all events , it is an indispensable crop . No family can well get along without a supply of this esculent . In Central Illinois for two years previous to the last , the crop was not good;—and what potatoes were produced , seemed to have degenerated . The change of seed , it seems , is necessary to keep up the excellence of the potatoe ; and it also seems reduced to a certainty , that to obtain good and sizeable potatoes , too much seed should not be planted in a hill . Two potato stalks are enough to he in one hill , and some cultivators prefer one stalk to two . Small potatoes are known as seed to have produced as good a yield as large ones , not only in amount , but in size . We have been accustomed to regard the Pink Eve as the best potato . It was certainly the best we had ten years / ago . They aTe good now )...
