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

SPRING. On I I lovo, I love the beautiful Spring, When leaves and plants are growing ; Whon tho joyous buds in the green wood sing, And gales o'er the hills are blowing. And I love, I love the mu-ical note Of waters that swill through tho valleys float, Their way to the far sea taking; My spirit it thrills with a holy thought, And my heart with a gontlo love is fraught, Amid the young year's waking. Oh I I love, I love the beautiful Spring, When morn is newly beaming, And the larks aloft on their missions wing, Their praise through the ether streaming; And I love, I love tho freshening breeze, The lowing herds, and tho grcon, green trees. And the fiolds of glistening flowers. The sun rejoices o'er valley and stream, The mountains ho tips with a golden beam, And lights the budding bowers. Oh I I love, I lovo the beautiful Spring, When day is calmly closing, And tho flowers abroad thoir fragrance fling, On tho twilight air reposing. And I love, I lore from the hawthorn tree, The gush ...

"A Reform Needed." [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

"A Reform Needed." Such is the title of a brief article written by the late lamented A. J. Downing, and published in the Horticulturist for October, 1851. The evil which he therein exposed to the reprobation of all lovers of decorum, good order and good taste, still exists, as it did at the time he wrote. It is the custom of allowing cows, hogs and other cattle to run at large in the streets of cities and villages, and in the highways of the country. This abomination extends all over the Union, with the single exception of the State of Massachusetts, and the town of Newburoh in the State of New York.If there are any other exceptions it would give us pleasure to be informed of the fact, and to have the public know it. Now, Messrs. Editors, we think you would be doing something considerable towards promoting good order and good taste, and towards abating an almost intolerable nuisance if you would reprint that excellent paper from the pen of Mr. Downing, and give thousands an opportun...

Culture of Teasels. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Culture of Teasels. The best soil for teasels, is a gravelly loam approaching to clay. Sandy or muck soil is not good. The best course is, to turn over in April, green-sward, with a good coating of manure, Barrow very fine, and when the weather is dry and the soil mellow, sow, with a drill or by hand, in rows three and a half feet apart, and so thick as to ensure one or more plants to each foot in the row. Soon as they are up, so that the rows can be seen, run a cultivator or small harrow two or three times between the rows, and thin them with the hoe to six to twelve inches apart, Keep the cultivator and hoes at work through the summer, or go oier them three or four times, and sull'er no weeds to grow with them. This ends the first year. The second year, run the cultivator through then as soon as the ground is dry in spring, and mellow it well. If the weeding was thoroughly done the previous year, the hoe will not be needed now. Now for the cutting and curing. Build sheds, open at ...

What Should be the Objects Aimed at by the Agricultural. Societies. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

What Should be the Objects Aimed at by the Agricultural. Societies. We have received a printed. c""t «f the abl* address of Mr. William Kelley. on retiring from tho Presidency of the New York State Agricultural Society —delivered at the Albany meeting, February 10, 1855. There are many valuable suggestions in this address. We give the following extract: The diversified objects of these societies, seetm not to be known nor appreciated as they should he. Many suppose their whole business is to got up an attractive annual exhibition and distribute premiums to the best specimens in every department there shown, but this, though important, is but a means to an end. I was struck lately in reading the charter of the Royal Agricultural Society of England, with the enumeration of the means it employs to advance the great object for which it was constituted —allow me to read them to you. 1. To embody such information contained in agricultural publications and in other scientifio works, as hav...

State Agricultural Society. The attention of the Agriculturists of the State is now called to this Society. "The note of preparation soundeth," the Government are at work making ready for the Annual Exhibition, and it is to be hoped that an interest will be manifested in all parts of the State to make this Exhibition one of unusual attention. Agricultuie, Horticulture, or Floriculture can present specimens that cannot be excelled. The Home Manufactures in every department can present evidence of the skill that will reflect credit upon the artisan, and honor upon the State. The Artist, too, can present nature in her most beautiful forms upon the canvass, so that it shall " speak to us;" and the skillful in many branches of immediate ' home industry » can add great interest by the varied products of rural life and beauty. The State Society asks at the hands of all onr citizens their aid and influence to make this Fair what it can bo made by such an union of feeling and interest. Liber...

Additional Exports. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Additional Exports. Since our last mention of exports several parties have come forward and large quantities of Grain have been shipped, and more is preparing. The following vessels'are up and loading, viz: The " S. S. Bishop," loading with wheat, barley and flour for the New York market. The " What Cheer," for Australia, taking in flour, grain, potatoes, etc. The " Mercedes." for Australia, has already engaged 5,000 bags of wheat, and 350 tons of flour. In the shipment of grain and produce, the certainty of success and profit by the transaction depends upon three all-important and requisite points of knowledge: Ist, The condition of the goods shipped and their certainty of arrival in order at the port of destination. Grain and root crops being perishable in their own nature, shippers should not take too great chances, for they can be avoided ; and it is all-important that this first point should be established before the work is begun. 2d. A careful estimation of all the costs of s...

Potato Crop of California. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Potato Crop of California. What shall we do with our surplus produce? What shall we do with our potato crop ? These are questions which are continually meeting us in our walks, rides, and letters —they meet us everywhere. Our answer has invariably been— " A way will be opened." When the mania for ship building raged in the East during the shipment of grain to feed the famishing millions of Europe in '47, careful men, croakers, were constantly asking, what shall be done with all our ships when the shipment of grain ceases ? The answer was— ,; A way will be opened." And what shall be done with all the foreign mercandise we are now importing in payment for the Grain we send to Europe'? The answer was —"A way will be opened." The shipment of grain ceased—ships increased at all our great seaports and lay idle at our wharves, but how long? The gold fever came, and every ship was quaickly required, no matter what its age or condition; ships were wanted and with them all our surplus merchan...

Refreshing Rains. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Refreshing Rains. THEIR EFFECJUPON THE GRAIN AND FRUIT CROPS. CHANGE OF THE SEASONS. The last two weeks we have had some heavy rains: although in years past rains have fallen in May, yet they were not so heavy nor so oft repeated. To whatever cause people may attribute these changes in the seasons, none can doubt their beneficial influence. To grains just making joint, and some heading, these rains will give a vigorous start and healthier growth, and assist greatly in causing the grain to set strong—not only grain, but fruit and vegetables are all very greatly benefited. We have never seen grain or grasses look so well. Hoot crops promise to be abundant. Fruit trees give at present all the needed assurance of a generous supply. We can assure lovers of good fruits that the CrOpS Of Strawborrloa >nd pettoHes tUo r r«»«ul season will be abundant. Strawberries will be found in our markets more or less the entire season. Peaches will be exhibited this year, in quantity and qua...

Kiln Dried Grain and Vegetables. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Kiln Dried Grain and Vegetables. AN INSURANCE AGAINST LOSS. It is all important in the shipments of grain and other products from California to tho Islands or any other part of tho world, that there should be a prospect of succsss in the shipment. The greatest danger to such an expedition is the risk of injury from sweat or decay, by which all kopp of profit is lost. To remedy the evil and to avoid all risk, the process of kiln drying is the only safeguard, and a perfect security can be had from every possible chance of loss from this source. A Kiln Dryer has been invented and patented, and is now ready to be presented to the community, or to parties who desire to be secure from such risks. This invention is one of the highest moment to California. By the use of this dryer, barley, wheat, flour or any other kind of grain, can be perfectly dried in a brief moment of time. Potatoes and other vegetables can be so dried as to secure their safe transmission on long voyages. Of this the b...

Sutter Title Confirmed. This long delayed question is at last at rest, It has been confirmed to its full extent 33 leagues. It is now hoped that all who have claims cither as original holders under the Suffer title, or as settlors, will promptly meet and adjust all differences in good faith, and with a generous feeling, so that Sacramento may go on and prosper, and the cultivators of the soil now make tho long delayed but much needed improvements.

Steamer Senator. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Steamer Senator. This noble steamer is once more upon the waters of the Sacramento. This event has caused quite a rejoicing among the travelers upon the river. It is a proof too that there is no evil that befalls us without some good to break the severity of the blow. The unfortunate accident which befell the splendid steamer New World and deprived us for a time df that favorite boat and her gallant commander, calls out recollections of this pioneer of steamers upon the Pacific, and awakens in the memory of all old '49 Californians, associations of the most thrilling interest It was our good fortune to have been one of a gay and happy group on her first trip from Boston to Portland. It was our good fortune to be upon her decks on her first trip up the Sacramento in '49, an event that will long be remembered ; and it was our good fortune to be again a passenger upon the resuming of her present course, which we trust will be a profitable and a fortunate one. The announcement at Sacram...

Vineyards, and the Manufacture of Wine. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Vineyards, and the Manufacture of Wine. GATHERING THE GRAPES. Cheerfully the Vinter undertakes this, the pleasantest of all his labors. Remuneration for many a toilsome hour now smiles at him from out his favorite vines. So sweet is this feeling that few Vintcrs can wait for the proper time. Grapes should be gathered as late as is possible, and it matters not if they should even get overripe. Many Vintcrs are of the opinion that the Grape, once ripe—which is the case as soon as the stems of the Grape hunches turn brown —it is useless to permit the grapes to encumber the vines any longer, as its quality will not be thereafter much improved. But experience demonstrates that while the quantity is slightly diminished, the quality is much improved. In this country, where there are never more than two, and generally but one species of grape, while in Europe from six to twenty species are often found in the same Vineyard, one reason for premature gathering is obviated. The grapes generally...
