Events , Speculations on the Fntnre , & e . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

Events , Speculations on the Fntnre , & e . The Leviathan steamship , judging from present indications , will not be ready for sea this season . The equipments of such a ship are so varied and extensive , embracing wants and demands common to us all , as well as those peculiar to the sea , that anything like haste or hurry is necessarily discarded . That she will commence a now era in commerce , is our opinion . Subject to all the vicissitudes incident to new undertakings , the princi ple of size in vessels will yet succeed . Largeness of view and execution characterizes this century . In floating bodies give us size for safety , for speed , for the conveyance of passengers , troops , or cargo . If we are to drown , or sink , or be submerged in the ice , let us do it on a big scale , with plenty of company to share the fate ! But this contingency will be avoided in proportion to the size that vessels are built . Compartments , so difficult in small vessels , arc an ackno...

The Season , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

The Season , We Lad occasion to congratulate our , readers in April on the beautiful opening of spring . The weather continued favorableuntilnear the middle of the month , and . since , until the pre- , sent writing , wehare had such deluges ofraia as we have not for seven years- witnessed in this State . At this time { May 27 th , ) the earth ; s completed saturated , and on . level grounds , in many places ^ the water lays on the surface . In . consequence of the rains , butlittlo spring grain has been sown , and not a twentieth part of the ground designed for corn has yet been planted ; and , unless lands are rolling and . naturally dry , they cannot be planted for several days even with good weather . Much land intended for corn , with . present appearances , will not be planted this spring . A good farmer , as : much as a good general , must make the best of the circumstances . by which he is surrounded . With pur ordinary , corn ,. acrop can be ntade if planted by the first of...

Wlxt ® xdm &amp;amp;&amp;lt; Grafters . Wo liave tree peddlers scattered over the country , who very generally take the advantage of the innocent in their sales of tree ? and ahubbery . One of these chaps in the lower part of the State this spring sold 200 quince sprouts to a farmer for seventyfive cents apiece and made him pay for them . The letter below speaks of companies of grafters , who have been traveling and working over the Southern section of the State . There , most of the apple trees are seedlings , and these men very properly say that they can improve the fruit of these trees by cutting off the . tops and grafting them . When this is done properly on trees that will pay the expense , it is well enough . But the object of the grafter is to make the most money , and we have known them go into an orchard and for a days work charge twenty or thirty dollars . And there is no certainty when grafts grow well , that you . will get good fruit . There are orchards in this...

&amp;lt;§ 0 xtxmttnx &amp;amp; Giape Culture in Missouri . Professor SWAILOW , of Missouri , re-, cently read before tlie Scientific Association , in session in Baltimore , an elaborate paper , designed to demonstrate the adaptation of the climate and soils of Missouri for the cultivation of the grape . He believed that the hi gh grounds in the south-west part of the State were the best portion for that purpose , though much would follow the cultivation in other parts . Professor SWALLOW thus speaks of the success of grape cultivation at Booneville , Hamburg and Hermann . He says : ¦ Notwithstanding the many difficulties our vinc-dressers have had to contend with , and notwithstanding some of their vineyards are not- —to say the least—in the most favorable localities hi the State , their success has been very flat- . tering . The vineyards of Booneville have yielded the present season about 6 , 000 gallons , worth § 12 , 000 . Five acres gave a clear . proHt of § 2 , 000 , o...

** ; The Manguel IVurlzel . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

** ; The Manguel IVurlzel . Editor of Farmer : I have had some experience in the cultivation ofthe large beet , known as the Manguel Wurtzell , for cattle . It can be said in favor of this root , that if the seed is planted in good , kind soil , in proper time , it will not fail of producing large crops . I would not be surprised if a rich and well cultivated acre would produce thirtyfive tons of the roots . Cattle are fond of this root . It will greatly increase the quantity of milk , and add to its richness , if fed to milch cows . It does not . impart , as turnips and Ritta-Baga sometimes do , a had taste to butter . On the contrary , butter made from the milk of cows fed with this beet , has a fine flavor , like that of May butter . I do not suppose that our farmers will go largely into the cultivation of roots for stock ; but some who arc curious , and who wish to try all things , and hold fast to the best , may try the cultivation on a small scale . The seed may be planted in ...

gfcc | tofet . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

gfcc | tofet . Children in the Flower Garden . If parents take an interest in the garden , the children imbibe their taste . This cultivation tends to useful results , both moral and physical . Children must have some hobby—a kite , a whistle , a pup , or something else to amuse them . Their minds are active , and they must have employment . Give children a patch in the garden ; teach them how to prepare the ground ; how to plant it ; admire with them the plants as they come up , and as they grow ^ and as they yield flowers or fruit . Children , and others of larger growth , have more love for plants that their own hands have tended , than for all others . Don t you think it does their little hearts good , when ,, with sparkling eyes and flushed cheeks , they pick a flower of their own growing ? It does so . And this may be the beginning of- the exercise of a taste that will follow them through all after life . A little but-door exercise is good for them physically , and it enlarges...

Roses . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

Roses . Many of the Roses are now in flower . June Koses , as a general fact , give the handsomest flowers of that class of plants ; but in a fortnight their beauty is gone . Hence there is a general desire to possess a class of roses which , if not so beautiful as the June , will exhibit their fine blossoms throughout the season . This class embraces the China Rose in all its varieties , and the Hardy Perpetual . The China Roses , ( and in these are included the tea , noisette , and bourbons , ) when the plants are large enough , blossom perpetually during the summer and autumn . Many of this class are tender , and will not survive the winter out of doors . Others will live in the ground , some with little , and others with no protection . The Hardy Perpetuals usually blossom twice or three times during the season . These are as hardy as June Roses , and show handsomer flowers than the China Roses . Both of these classes of roses can be purchased at the green houses in all seasons ...

** Years of Floods . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

** Years of Floods . An observing friend reminded us that heavy rains , and . floods come upon this country , periodically — once in -seven years . There was a great flood in 1844 , ( that deluged the American Bottom , ) all the western rivers were high , and the waters out of their banks . The same thing occurred in 51 , though the floods were not so extensive as in 44 ; and again in 58 . The . Illinois river now in some places lookslike an arm of the sea , and even our little home river Sangamon could swim line-of-battle ships . For some days , all the country bridges across the river were impassable , and there was no chance of crossing but upon the railroad bridges . These were high beyond the floods . . jE ^* Several car loads wheat Chicago have been rejected m New York . on account of its heing damp , muBty and dirty . Chicago wheat is now quoted in .
