The "Fruits" of Horticulture. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855
The "Fruits" of Horticulture. We give below a specimen of tho Fruits that are produced by encouraging the science of " Pomology." We present our friends and readers with the sentiments inculcated by a gathering of the friends of Agriculture, Horticulture and Floriculture, at the Pomological Festival given by Hon. M. P. Wilder, at Boston, last winter, at the Revere House. Among gudsts from every State, men of the highest standing, we find the Governor of Massachusetts, the Mayor of Boston, and other distinguished men, and when called to respond, their words are as the fruits of such festivals nourished and grown upon the great tree of Agriculture. We append a few, to show them in contrast with political speeches, and hope the day is not far distant when such festivals shall be had upon the Pacific coast. When the company had partaken of the elegant repast, Mr. Wilder made a brief address, and gave utterance to the pleasure which this visit of the members of the American Pomological S...
I AM LONELY. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855
I AM LONELY. I am lonely, oh, how lonely, And my weary soul doth pine, For one loving heart, one only, Joy and grief to sharo with mine I I would pour each thought, each feeling, Fearless out, on some fond breast, Sure to find an echo stealing Upward from its gentle rest! When the festal throng arc meeting, Round one form my arm I'd twine, Conscious that the heart-pulse beating, Gave back throb for throb, to mine! Then I'd smile where crowds are smiiing, Proudly feeling even there, Where sweet beauty's most beguiling, I was one heart's dearest care ! Vain, all vain is this world's yearning For the love I knew of yore, Sadly, toari'ully I'm learning, Earth will give it me no more I I have known how dear a blessing, Is a love that knows no fear, But its sweetness, past expressing, Never more my heart will cheer I So, I'm lonely, very lonely, And my weary soul doth pine, For that blessed home where only Love and joy «an now be mine 1 Doha Lib.
Women Should Shun Men of Bad Character. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855
Women Should Shun Men of Bad Character. We hope that the following advice will not be lost on all mothers and daughters. They should shun base and sensual men. as they would a leper. But unfortunately the society of a brilliant bad man, is about as much courted, as a brilliant good one. Females cannot shield themselves under the plea of ignorance. Good men may have bad reputations, and bad men good reputations, but aside from this, they have a character which is or may be known by all decent women who would prefer the society of a gentleman, to that of a villain and roue. — Ohio Farmer. Here is the extract,: Did woman feel the responsibility of the station she holds in society —did she feel how much she is the arbitress of man's destinies on earth, nay, even beyond it, how different would she act! Instead of dispensing her smiles equally on the worthy and unworthy, she would show by her discountenance of vice, how hateful it was to her; no matter how talented a man was, how graceful...
PUSH ON! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855
PUSH ON! HENRY J. SARGENT. Awake I and listen. Everywhere— From upland, grove and lawn, Out breathe the universal prayer, The orison of morn. Arise! and don thy working garb; All nature is astir; Let honest motives he thy barb, And usefulness thy spur. Stop not to li .-t the boisterous jeers, (lie would be what thou art,) They should not c'en offend thine ears, Still less disturb thy heart What though you have no shining hoard, (Inheritance or stealth;) To purchase at the broker's board, The recompense of wealthPush on I You're rusting while you stand; Inaction will not do; Take life's small bundle in your hand, And trudge it briskly through. Push on I Don't blush because you have a patch In honest labor won ; There's many a ema'l cot roofed with thatch Is happier than a throne. Push on I The world is large enough For you, and me, and all; You must expect your sharo of rough, And, now and then, a fall. But up again I act out your partBear smilingly your load; There's nothing like a ...

Sketches connected with California History. ritOLOOUE. In that most ancient collection of gazettes containing the earliest chronicles of the human race, as indited by Moses and the prophets, and continued by tho apostles and followers of Jesus Christ, until they touched on the distinctly ascertained boundaries of historical evidence, we are informed of countries similar to the one in which it has pleased God to cast our lot: of the primitive life of the ancient patriarchs and rancheros; of their explorations of unknown territories ; of their battles with the heathen and conquest of Phillistine nations; of their discoveries of lands flowing with wine and milk and honey; of soils yielding an hundred fold; and of their trade and commerce with peoples and tribes who had riches of gold and silver, and pearls and precious stones. And here followeth the narration of some of the most noted of their daily events, as related' by editors of those times, when the earth lay a fresh field, open t...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855
OBITUARY. The tolling bell on the evening of the last Sabbath, drew our steps to the church of Rev. Mr. Benton, at Sacramento. Soon a long procession of children from the Schools were gathered within the church, and the organ notes sent forth the solemn requiem for the dead ; then from the voices of many children rose the " Farewell Hymn," and this touching appeal prepared those who were in the crowded auditory to listen to the solemn address of the pastor who made an earnest exhortation to impress upon the minds of those present the melancholy event which had just occurred, in the loss of one of the teachers by drowning, while crossing the river from opposite Sacramento. It being near dusk, the boat was crushed by a steamer, and this lady with her friend and protector perished. This event is most touchingly and trutlifully, yet beautifully and tenderly given in the obituary which we append, a just tribute to a most amiable and highly esteemed lady. The obituary notice is from the p...
