Experiments with Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Experiments with Potatoes. Downieville, April 22, 1855. Messrs. Editors: Being always interested in the perusal of your paper and taking a deep interest in whatsoever concerns the development of the resources of our country, more particularly the Agricultural part of it. in which I have embarked and intend to make my profession, I am ever seeking for such information as will aid mc in that business which I have adopted from choice. T have taken your paper for my guide, not entirely depending upon it in all things, but as a rule whereby I may work. In it 1 find many hints which are serviceable to me to create new ideas, which as far as practicable I follow up by experiments, the results of which are carefully noted in a journal for that purpose, and compared with those rules found laid down for others like myself, the inexperienced. By carefully noting and comparing the results of the few experiments made by me, with those made by farmers in other States, I find that the same rules w...

Agricultural School. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Agricultural School. A correspondent of the Country Gentleman makes the following inquiries of the editor: " Can you inform me of the whereabouts of a good Agricultural Academy, where Agriculture is taught in all its branches, practical and theoretical, applicable to the Middle States? one where common school studies are also taught, but where the chief study and employment is Agriculture ; having a farm attached, which the scholars are taught to properly cultivate and manage, with proper buildings, lire stock, implements, apparatus, &c, amply sufficient to give the scholar a clear and thorough knowledge of the object in view 1 I mean a place from whence, after a reasonable time of diligent study and observation, the student can come, fully competent to manage a farm profitable and effectually ? Also the name of the principal, charges of tuition, (which most be moderate,) and other particulars. "If the editors of the Country Gentleman will answer the above through the co...

Draining by Wells. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Draining by Wells. Messrs. Editors: You wish to know if land can be drained by wells. I have made one experiment only, and that was entirely successful. I owned a piece of land on which there was a basin of about three-fourths of an acre, which received the surplus water of at least ten acres. It would sometimes be from two to three feet deep in the centre. The water stood in the basin at least eight months in the year, and the basin was full every hard rain the other four months. On the 3d of August, 1841,1 dug a well nine feet deep in the centre of the basin, and came to living water, which rose very rapidly, so much so that I expected to see it run over the top in a short time. 1 think the water rose at least two feet in ten minutes and then stopped, and remained at that depth until a heavy rain of three days. I then went to look at the well, expecting to find it full and running over; but to my utter astonishment, there was not more than a half feet in the well. It had risen abo...

Grow More Wool. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Grow More Wool. Our own experience and observation have satisfied us that there is no kind of farming that is so generally profitable as raising sheep and wool. It matters not whether you are upon the bleak hills of Vermont or in the fertile plains of Texas; upon the prairies of the West, or the now solitary mountains of the South. Everywhere and anywhere the sheep would live and thrive, and with proper care pay more for the capital invested than any other animal, or any other system of farming. It is one of the most useful and economical machineries which has been given us to convert the vegetation of the farm to money. Were it for the first time presented to us, we should consider the sheep one of the most wonderful animals nature has produced for the use of man. Its annual growth of wool, so admirably adapted for human clothing, and used in every portion of the globe—its skin and flesh, and in many localities its milk, all serve for the necessaries or luxuries of man. There is no...

Valuable Foreign Stock. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Valuable Foreign Stock. We have recived the following Circular, which we publish for general benefit. It came addressed to the Cor. Sec. of Cal. State Ag. Society, and believing great good will result from it, and hoping it may induce a better attention to stock, it is laid before our readers. The information is of much importance, and valuable, by reason of its correct description of the various kinds of stock: ENGLISH CATTLE. SHEEP AND SWINE, Selected and imported on commission, to any of the Atlantic seaports in America, by Thos. Betts & Co. of Liverpool and of Herts, Eugland; embracing pure blood horses, &c; mules from Spain, ftcj Short Horned cattle, Devons, Herefords, 'Ayrshire and Alderdey cows. Arc; pure South .

Letter from a Subscriber. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Letter from a Subscriber. ''I asked for bread, and they gave me a stone." The following is the true copy of a letter received at our office on Tuesday last. We do not, will not utter a word of reproach or complaint, but simply ask the writer, and all others who either write or think so, to pause and reflect. The small pittance we ask for our journal, to which we devote all our means, time, strength and the cause to which we have been wedded for more than a quarter of a century, we think de mauds of those who receive the results of our efforts, humble though they be, a corresponding feeling on their part. We have placed the price of our paper very low —the writer himself says so, as will appear in his letter. " The paper is worth double the amount of the subscription." This we think should induce every subscriber to remit us promptly; and it is with deep regret that we are ever obliged to cut off a single subscriber. We do not rank the writer among those who are unwilling to pay, or ...

Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Agriculture. A HOBBY, VERSUS TRUTH. The steady and earnest pursuit of a great enterprise may so thoroughly imbue the mind with its importance, it may become so wedded to the heart and affections, may be so enthusiastically pursued, that the casual observer, ho who never looks into the true merits of that calling, may in his ardent interest for some other pursuit, so speak of a noble science as to give a wrong impression of its value. We plead the cause of Agriculture as a great science, one most deeply affecting all the best interests of California. We are jealous of all that shall jeopardize it, and we trust we shall be understood, while pleading the cause of Agriculture, that while we claim for it a high place, yea the very highest, in the affections and interests of every man, woman and child, we do not wish to detract from the merits of other meritorious pursuits. We are too well aware that "Agriculture," is but a dry subject to the great mass of the people of this State—tho min...

Strawberries. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Strawberries. The proprietor of Smith's Pomological Gardens, at Sacramento, has given us another proof of his skill at fruit growing, by sending us a generous basket of his strawberries on Saturday last. 'Tis true they were not G 1-2 inches, like the " mammoth specimens 9 exhibited above, but many of them measured 4 and 4 1-2 inches, and a few 5 inches in circuniference, and a finer or more delicious fruit cannot be found. They were also the same variety we alluded to, "Smith's California Seedling." We are very sorry our neighbor of the " Wide West" should be so great an unbeliever in the fertility of our soil, for it could not have been anything else that caused him to pen following. Poor fellow! there's no "music in his soul," yet his mouth waters for a feast. We must ask friend Smith to send him a basket, to make him believe. Hear what he says: . " Strawberry Sauce— The editor of the California Farmer, in his enthusiasm over a deli- clous repast of strawberries, uses the followin...

The Victoria Regia or Great Water Lilly. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

The Victoria Regia or Great Water Lilly. We have received the colored plates of this most gorgeous flower. It is indeed a queenly one, and the plates are got up in most superb style. The plates are by that celebrated artist William Sharp, Esq., of Boston, who executed Hovey's work on fruits, and those also of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. The whole work descriptive of this wonderful flower, its discovery, history, culture, manner and season of blooming, and all appertaining to it, has been carefully pre-* pared by that distinguished horticulturist, I, Fisk Allen, Esq.. of Salem, Mass., whose graperies, gardens and grounds, are specimens of taste and skill that bespeak a love and devotion to the science, rarely excelled. This work is on exhibition and for sale at our rooms, where lovers of the beautiful may be gratified.

Facts to be Remembered. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Facts to be Remembered. Vermont supplies her schools with Agricultural Books from the State Treasury. New Hampshire also furnishes the public schools with Agricultural Books from the State Treasury. The Legislators of Massachusetts devote a portion of their evenings in discussing the merits of Agriculture. Ten public meetings have been held at the State House during the present session, and every meeting was fully attended by senators and representatives, the chief magistrate also being present at nearly all the meetings. This is as it should be. We wonder what would be the result if the Legislators of California should do the same. Maine has endorsed her State Agricultural Society and made appropriations upon a liberal scale, offering to grant as much] from the State Treasury as the members will raise. Special.—The communication from our correspondent, " Protection to Agriculture," we are well pleased to lay before our readers, and we feel assured it will lead to inquiry, to discus...

The Arsenal at Benicia. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

The Arsenal at Benicia. Perhaps some of our readers may say. what havo powder magazines, or arsenals, to do with Agriculture ? We can only say, that the great Washington taught —"In time of peace prepare for war"— ergo, we should have arsenals and magazines. What would our friends at Sonoma, Napa, and Suisun, do if we should, be so unfortunate as to have a general war with Europe ? Then the farmers would be glad of the defence to our teaboard. But to the Arsenal: Very few can have any possible conception of the most admirable plans now being adopted and carried out to establish one of the best military defences in our country. It is but justice to a highly meritorious ofQcer to show what can be done by one who, feeling the nature of an honorable post, one of great responsibility, resolves to acquit himself of that trust in the noblest manner. The military stations to which we allude, the "Arsenal." has been for years under the charge of Capt. C. P. Stone, an officer universally hono...

Education. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Education. It is one of the most cheering evidences of the future permanency of California, that amid the wild commotion produced by panics in monetary affairs, depressions in business, and political agitation, the cause of education is steadily progressin our State. The State government, our city governments, and all our towns and villages arc awake to the importance of "education." Not only public schools, but academies and private seminaries are springing up in all parts of the State, and they are promptly fostered and encouraged. We rejoice at this; it speaks well for 1 the future. In our last issue we alluded to the Seminary at Benicia, under the direction of Miss Atkins. We cannot speak too highly of such an institution. Not only the intellect is cared for here, but the moral and physical well being of the pupils are regarded. Intellectual training is always more perfect and durable when a proper | care is bestowed upon the physical powers, and when, by a kind and affectionate...

Material for Paper. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Material for Paper. The Atlantic presses mention that paper has been manufactnn <1 at St. Leuis,from the common swamp cane of ttie Southwest. The manufacture of paper from bamboo, is like everything else tinder the sun, nothing new. It has been used from time immemorial in China, as the basis of all the qualities of that material; some of which, from certain varieties of the bamboo, taken when young and mixed with cotton, equals the finest qualities of Paris or Bath post. The use of envelopes is also quite ancient in China, and some of them are most beautifully figured—they open at the ends and not at the sides. The consumption of paper from bamboo in China is immense; paper is consumed there in larger quantities than in any other country under the sun, and is made of all qualities, colors and prices, but cane is mixed with all. The Chinese shops in San Francisco invariably use it. In the " Chinese Repository," printed at Canton, may be found full details of the methods o...

Protection to Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Protection to Agriculture. To the Editor of the California Farmer: Sir: As an individual member of the Mechanical class of working men and an unobtrusive observer of the many projects that from time to time have been launched on the deep sea of public opinion, I see nothing so far as my humble judgment can penetrate, more sensibly calculated to stimulate the industry, secure the prosperity and exalt the dignity of the State of California, than tho conclusions arrived at by the Agricultural Convention at their meeting in Sacramento city. Sir: They first demand through their resolutions to have a share of legislative action, which, in so doing, it is nothing more or less than what they have a direct and unquestionable right to ; they require as cultivators of the soil, the real developers of nature, to see their interests cherished by the community in general, and their rights and privileges guarded by fair, impartial legislation. And again, they object to the doctrine of free trade f...

Report on some of the Diseases and Insects Affecting Fruit Trees and Vines. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Report on some of the Diseases and Insects Affecting Fruit Trees and Vines. THADDEUS WILLIAM HARRIS Professor of Entomology of the Mass, Horticultural Society. [concluded.] PEAR TREE INSECTS. Those most injurious to this tree are the Slugvorms, which destroy the leaves, the Scolylus or Tomicus, referred to in a preceding paragraph, and borers, which make their attacks on the stocks of dwarf trees that are gratfted upon the quince. Pear trees likewise suffer occasionally from barklice. Within a few years, a new and probably introduced insect has made its appearance in great numbers on pear trees in the western parts of Connecticut and of Massachusetts, particularly in the valley of the Housatonic. and in the adjacent counties of Duchess and Columbia in New York. This is the Psylla, or jumping louse, which is probably identical with the same species that infects the pear tree in Europe. Some account of it has been given in the second edition of my "Treatise ;" but the history is confe...

Lawns. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855

Lawns. An English lawn ! Who that loves the country—soft grass and fine trees, —verdant turf and beautiful foliage; —who, indeed, that has ever thought or reflected upon the subject of sylvan art, has not his ideal of an "English lawn?" imperfectly formed, it may be, below its true merits, or exaggerated, and beyond what it really is; but, nevertheless, an ideal of that lawn, which, from its softness, smoothness, emerald verdure, freshness and beauty, has become so prominent a characteristic of the Landscape Gardening of Great Britain as the modern or natural style is itself a feature of the taste and refinement of the art in that country. Few who have not seen or trod the "velvet turf" of England can fully realize its surpassing beauty; so short, so elastic, so smooth is it in every part. Spread out like a velvet carpet beneath the feet, nothing, indeed, but a brief walk on such a lawn as Chatsworth, or one of similar extent and perfect keeping, could ever convey a full impression ...
