AGRICULTURAL, &c. Pitt's Double Pinion Eight or Ten Horse Power. THIS Horse Power, as now manufactured by the subscriber, is admitted by those who have purchased and used it, to surpass, for strength, ease, durability and cheapness of repair, any Power ever ottered to the public. Their great superiority over other powers, consists It the plan of construction. It will be seen that this Horse Power is just double the strength of any tingle geared power, and is the only real Double Pinion Power in existence. Notwithstanding it is sufficiently strong and warranted to stand the full strength of eight or ten horses, it is also warranted to give as much effective or useful power, when driven by one or two horses, as any other power, whether constructed on the endless chain or lever principle. I have, for the last eight years, manufactured and sold a large number of these powers, during which time they have been thoroughly tested, and gained a high reputation over all others: / ...

Varieties [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 17 May 1855

Varieties I Didn't say Bristles.—The Louisville Journal relates the following anecdote: We remember that some years ago, Jtodger M. Sherman, and Perry Smith, were opposed to each other as advocates in an important case before a court of justice. Smith opened the case with a violent tirade against Sherman'B political character. Sherman rose and very composedly remarked: "I shall not discuss politics with Mr. Smith before the Court, but 1 am perfectly willing to argue questions of law, to chop hairs or even to split hairs with him." " Split that then," said Smith, at the same time pulling a short rough looking air from his own head, and handing it over toward Sherman. "May it please the honorable court," retorted Sherman. "1 didn't say bristles." Interesting to Hen Fanciers. —One of the most serious obstacles in the way of keeping hens about a house has been their hitherto unconquerable predilection for stratching up gardens. We learn from the Oswego Palladium that an ingenious Yankee...

Smut in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

Smut in Wheat. Stockton, May 12. Messrs. Editors : As I suppose the columns of the California Farmer are open to every Species of industry and agricultural knowledge, I have penned the following, more in the spirit of inquiry than teaching. Will you or some of your subscribers give a clear and popular solution of this perplexing subject, rendered the more so because of the diversity of opinion which prevails among all classes of farmers. Mr. A. and his neighbor B. bought of the same lot of seed. A.'s turned out perfectly clear of smut, while B.s (grown on the adjacent ranch) was by this scourge of the wheat field, rendered unfit for the ordinary use. Mr. C. relates his experience: he has grown two kinds of wheat, mixed, for three years, sown and grown simultaneously ; one kind has smutted invariably, in the other he has never seen an unsound head; hence C. infers that it is a disease in the seed. transmitting it in the germ from j-ear to year. Mr. A, is puzzled, but concludes and ar...

Clerkships vs. Farming. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

Clerkships vs. Farming. The letter of the city Clerk, published in the Country Gentleman of the 25th January, has elicited several replies, the last one of which seems to me to be peculiarly adapted to the case; devising a plan, safe, judicious, pleasant and profitable. If the early training of the clerk was upon a farm, he may have obtained a knowledgde of the business with what be (i£yeti r oung) can learn, to become a'practical farmer and make it profitable' to himself. But I have seen many instances here in the valley of the Connecticut river, of attempts at farming by city gentlemen, retired merchants and commanders in the merchant marine, attracted hither by the healthful climate, good air and water, and productive soil. They are generally perfect novices in their newvocation, and commencing an unlearned and untried business late in life, it very often results in loss, vexation, disappointment and failure. They find themselves wanting in the practical routine of profitable far...

To Ascertain the Weight of Live Stock. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

To Ascertain the Weight of Live Stock. First, sec that the animal stands square, then, with a string, take his circumference just behind the shoulder-blade, and measure the feet and inches —this is the girth. Then measure from the bone of the tail which plums the line with the hinder part of the buttock, and direct the string along the back to the forepart of the shoulder-blade, and this will be the length. Then, work the figures thus : —Suppose girth of bullock 0 feet 4 inches, length 5 feet 3 inches, which multiplied together makes 33 square superficial feet; and these, multiplied by 2.s—the number of pounds allowed for each superficial foot of cattle measuring less than seven and more than five feet in girth—make 75U lbs. When the animal measures less than nine and more than seven feet in girth. 31 is the number of pounds to be estimated for each superficial foot. And suppose a small animal to measure two feet in girth and two feet in length ; these multiplied together make 4 fee...

Prevention of Drouth. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

Prevention of Drouth. The subject of the best means of preventing crops from suffering from drouth was discussed at a late meeting of the Farmers* Club of the American Institute. Professor Mapcs made a brief and excellent address. He said that the deposition of moisture upon the surface of bodies colder than the atmosphere was an acknowledged evidence of the «rstence of moisture in the atmosphere. The fact of a want of moisture in the soil was a sure evidence that there was a superabundance in the atmosphere. Wherever the soils are disintegrated to a sufficient depth, they will be found te be colder than the supernatant atmosphere. When the atmosphere circulates in a free soil, it will deposit moisture in every particle of earth colder than the air. This process, too, was eminently beneficial in another way. It was well known that during the first part of a shower, rain was more beneficial than in the last part, as the ammonia accumulated in the atmosphere, and which was necessary t...

Fattening Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

Fattening Fowls. Fowls and chickens may be fattened in four or five days, by feeding them three times daily with rice boiled in milk, always fresh, as sourness prevents them from fattening. Give them clear water to drink. By this method the liesh is made particularly white. It is very desirable, both for the thrift of the animal and the orderly progress of the labors of the farm, that all the domestic animals, as far as possible, be fed, watered, etc., at the same hour and minute every day. It has been found by experienced and intelligent herdsmen, that, when thua attended to, they iearn to expect their fodder at the stated time, and remain quiet and uncomplaining till that period comes around. This is true of all domestic animals, and should be heeded by the farmer. Let him so arrange his labors at the barn that every operation may be performed at a stated time, and he will find matters to go on much more pleasantly and comfortably than when all is left at hazard, without system or...

Removal.

Butter, Cheese, Lard, &c. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

Butter, Cheese, Lard, &c. It may be interesting to some of our producers, our dairymen and others, and it may also be a matter of interest to our merchants in the country who are not posted in such matters, to know a little of the quantity of the articles of butter, cheese, lard, soap, and candles, that are imported into San Francisco. We should bear in mind that the first three of articles are now the produce of California, and can be had in quantities ample for the wants of the State, if a proper regard be had to home industry ; and the other two can be manufactured here as cheap as in tho Eastern States. From the books at the Merchants' Exchange, so ably conducted by Messrs. Sweeney & Baugh. we find the following recorded as the importation of the present month, only tnenty-four days: Butter —28 hhds, 034 tierces, 309 barrels, 424 half barrels, 251 firkins, 93 cases. Cheese —1.084 casks and cases. Lard —1.023 cases. These three articles can be had here in ...

Practical Agriculture—Its History—The Mechanic Arts, &c. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

Practical Agriculture—Its History—The Mechanic Arts, &c. We beg to acquaint our readers that we have made an arrangement with Mr. Wm. Thompson, of Mission Dolores, (the author of the "Prize Essay" of the California Academy of Natural Sciences, referred to in the Farmer of the 17th inst.) to furnish us with a series of articles on Practical and Scientific Agriculture, which we are confident will be found interesting to agriculturists. The manuscript copy of the first number is in hand and will appear in next issue. The publication of the State Society's Premiums prevents its appearance this week. Mr. Thompson's articles will appear in familiar letters over the signature of "Agricola." From Agricola our readers may anticipate a series of interesting letters.
