A. CARD. December, 1870. Having seen the prospectus of the Pacific! Rural Press, and believing there is great need I in our comparatively new' agricultural districts of such a journal as therein proposed, the uni dersigned do not hesitate to state that from the ! standing reputation and success of its pub- ! lishers, (Messrs. Dewey &amp; Co., proprietors of • the BCKNTOTC Press,) we believe the new jour- ' nal will be worthy of universal trial by our agi ricultural and rural population, and that its publication will be fruitful of much usefulness ! to its subscribers and in forwarding the development of our natural wraith and prolific rei sources.

The Pacific Kukal is only four dollars per annum. Tlie paper is especially intended for tbe farmer, tho gardener, and the country gentleman, but will be n useful paper, in other respects, to every man having a family. It will be devoted to spreading information, to advance farming, gardening, stockrailing and fruit-growing interests of the Pacific slope, and ns we in thin country cannot find, owing to the difference of climate here, and at the East, the requisite information in our Eastern papers, we think that here is a chance to buy what we want, home tons, nnd we recommend the papers to all.— [NeT.

HOW CHROMOS ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 1 April 1871
HOW CHROMOS ARE MADE. W« give this week another fine engraving from one of Prang's excellent chromos. It is entitled " Launching the Life Boat," and is after a painting by Edward Moran of Philadelphia. Our readers will remember the picture of "Sunset on the ("oast," by De Haas, which appeared in the PIUGM of Feb. 11th. With their success with these two productions the publishers are well content. They do not hesitate to say (we quote) that in the reproduction of these two pictures they have given to the public, two master-pieces of American art, such as have never before been approached by the hand of the chromo artist. Although Mr. Moran's picture is in perfect contrast to Mr. De Haas', the two are nevertheless most excellent companion pieces. While the latter is glowing with color, the former \m gray Hinl sombre. Here the storm in yet raging in i&lt;* fury, autl the beaveni are covered with black clouds. There it has already spent its force, and through the riven cloud-vei...
MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 1 April 1871
MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Pneumatic Mail Tubes.—The following description is from Gardiner Greene Hubbard's late memorial on the subject of postal telegraph: "Twelve of the principal offices in Paris are connected by these tubes. The carrier consists of a brass box, shaped like a clock weight, placed inside a tightly-fitting case of hard leather. After many experiments this form has been found the best adapted for the service. The messages are placed with addressed envelopes in the carrier, together with a list, showing the number and destinations of the messages. The carrier stops at every office on the route, that messages may be taken out and others put in. Each office is furnished with a Morse instrument and line wire. There is one main circuit 21,497 feet in length, two secondary, 17,350 feet and 16,617 feet, and a branch line 3,712 feet, making a total of 59,182 feet, or eleven miles. "The trains" start from the central station every 15 minutes, and make the circuit in about 14 min...
SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 1 April 1871
SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Effect of Light at Diffekent SeaDepths.—An instrument for testing the depth to which the actinic rays of light can penetrate, devised by Mr. Siemens, was recently tested in Gibraltar Harbor by Dr. Carpenter. The action of the sea water upon it, however,—increased as it was by the galvanic current arising from the contact of iron and brass in the mechanism, — interfered in some degree with its working, and it is to be reconstructed and again tested. We copy a description of it: " The foundation of the apparatus is a horizontal wheel with three radii, each of them carrying a glass tube in which a piece of sensitised paper is sealed up. The rotation of this wheel round a vertical axis brings each of the tubes in succession out of a dark chamber in which it ordinarily lies, exposes it to light in an uncovered space, and then carries it into darkness again. This movement is produced by a spring; but it is regulated by a detent that projects from the kee2&gt;e...

The Snow-Bound, Starved Emigrants of 1846. Statement by Mr. Reed, one of the Dormer Company. "The Doiuier Tragedy—A Thrilling Chapfer in Our Pioneer History." [Contiuued from puge 188.] Arrive at Capt. Sutler's. When I arrived, making known my situation to him, asking if he would furnish me horses and saddles to bring the women ami children out of the mountains, [I expected to meet them at the head of Bear Valley by the time I could return there], he at once complied with the request; also saying that he would do every thing possible for me and the company. On the evening of my arrival at the Captain's, I found Messrs. Bryant, Lippencott, Grayson, mid Jacobs, some of the early voyagers in the Russel company, they having left that company at Fort Laramie, most of them coming on horseback. During the evening a meeting was held, in which I participated, adopting a memorial to the commander of Slitter's Fort, to permit them to raise one or moro companies of volunteers, to proceed to Los...
