Untitled [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
Madam Pfeiffer. —We would call the attententionof our readers to the article in this week's issue, relative to this lady. It was taken from an eastern paper, and the lady merits all that is said and more. We have stated in a former article that we had the pleasure of a visit from her at our Agricultural Exhibition in 1853, at Musical Hall, and remember the activity of mind and the deep interest she manifested in all that related to science. Her company and conversation was most instructive, for it was a constant emanation of interesting facts, that, like electricity, vibrated through the nerves.
Our Country is Safe. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
Our Country is Safe. What are these great gatherings at the Merchants' Exchange at New York, and at Boston, at Philadelphia and Baltimore ? Why these telegraphic dispatches? The lightnings are at work there, and the merchants of these famous cities are gathered in groups in earnest conversation. Can it be true, says one—loaded with Grain and Flour from California did yon say ? what can it mean? There must be some mistake —one ship last, week another to-day, and a third telegraphed. But, says another speaker, more anxious than the first, I have just received a dispatch from Boston of one ship in, and another below, laden with grain and flour ; and my partner at Philadelphia says this is but the beginning. Californians arc exporting shovels also, and various kinds of merchandise manufactured in the New England States, and making large profits. Strange country, that California! Another group, more sedate than the first, are mutually condoling one another: Says one, my flour has gone to...

The Mammoth Ox.—This wonderful animal is now on exhibition at rooms on Commercial street between Sansome and Montgomery, (see advertisement.) It is impossible to give such a description as will enable those who have not a conception of what a mammoth ox is, to appreciate his Bovine Majesty. No one should fail to go and see him and judge for themselves. It is a sight of more than ordinary interest. A wonderful animal, size and proportion in fair keeping ; in truth an elegant animal. He looks so good you wish to feel of him to see if he is real. The rooms are neat and clean, and ladies can visit with the assurauce that order and cleanliness and most respectful attentions will add to the pleasure of the visit to the wonder of the day. This ox approximates to the enormous weight of 4000 pounds, and he is still termed a calf, and by great care and feeding can be made to reach 5000 pounds. We are pleased to learn that the proprietor intends to put him in order for the State Fair at Sacram...
Wm. D. M. Howard, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
Wm. D. M. Howard, Esq. Few names are so honorably identified with the history of San Francisco as is the name of this gentleman, whose arrival with his family was chronicled among the passengers of the J. L. Stephens. In its earliest history stands the name of ;i Howard," its streets and blocks of buildings bear it, and the early pioneers remember well that every measure of public good, every public enterprise, every demand upon the benevolence and sympathy of this community—all received his prompt attention and cheerful aid. His name was a passport to success, his influence was potent, Whatever work was in hand, his name carried with it a host, and his influence came not only in a public sphere—hundreds and thousands in private felt the cheering and blessed charm of generous aid and sympathy. The stranger upon these shores was made welcome, the poor, the sick, the distressed, found in W. D. M. Howard, the noble, generous, disinterested friend and helper, and thousands will ever bea...
A SONG OF SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
A SONG OF SPRING. MRS. MARY ANN WHITAKER. The; Angel of the Beautiful Ilitth rai-ed the wintry veil From Nature's face of loveliness, And tinged her features pale, By breathings pure as morning air, When gently stirred with early prayer. The Angel of the Beautiful Hath wooed her for his bride. With sweetest tale of mystery, Till, spell-bound to his side, Fair Nature kneels within her bower, And loving, joyful, owns his power. The Angel of the Beautiful Hath decked his bride with flowers, And now he leads her lovingly To greet the rosy hours, With off'rings such as seraphs bring. To celebrate the birth of Spring. The Angel of the Beautiful Hath oped the secret mine, Where precious gems are glistening, As stars at midnight shine i And claimed the brightest, purest, best, To sparkle on dear Nature's breast. The Angel of the Beautiful His chosen one hath taught To sing glad songs of gratitude, Which mortal ears have caught; And thus to man on earth is given A foretaste of the bliss of H...
An Evening with a Woman who has Travelled round the World. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
An Evening with a Woman who has Travelled round the World. I had the good fortune to pass an evening in company with tho celebrated female traveller, Madame Ida Pfeiffer. She interested me exceedingly, not only because she is the first woman who has had the courage to travel over the whole world, alone, unattended, and unprotected, but because her character of itself is a powerful and remarkable one. In person she is slightly and delicately formed, of scarcely the middle hight. Her features are quite small and regular, her complexion darkened by exposure, apparently, and her expression worn and aged by fatigue. And here allow me to remark, how strange it is that different individuals see the same objects with such different appreciative vision. Madame Pfeiffer has been called plain. I do not understand how one who has ever seen her smile could say so. Her smile is wonderful and extremely fascinating. Her soul beams out of her fase with amazing brilliancy and sweetness. I could compa...
Terrible Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
Terrible Revenge. A late Parisian newspaper tells the following story of a wealthy Englishman, who may constantly be seen at the Grand Opera, and the Italian Opera, and who enjoys a great reputation, not only as being a connoisseui#f music, but further, as being a great amateur of painting. How the reputation was acquired, you will presently see. He was one of those Beduoin Englishmen, who live alternately in the European capitals, except when they are on an occasional jaunt to Egypt, or to China, or to India,or to the Holy Land. He never traveled alone; bis wife was with him—his bone Jide wife—for, notwithstanding his errant life, so apt to weaken one's morals, he had all the English respect for the sex, and a true Englishman's love for his wife, She was a beautiful woman, one of those " keep-sake" beauties, that once seen, make a man dream forever. Her social success was very great in all the cities they visited. In Rome, after being married some years, they became acquainted with...
Hints on Education. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
Hints on Education. Home Education.— No children now study at home, save those who, at school, study too much. Give them three hours per day at school, and the business there would be delightful and attractive. The mind of the child would involuntarily revert to the business of the next day, and moments would be snatched—as rest or recreation, as a change from other occupations—tr&gt; look into the subjects on hand for the next succeeding school hours. Parents could point them to men or women of whom they could get a fact or a truth. Insensibly, the interest of parents would be excited, either by inquiries on their part or on the part of the child, to ascertain that which either did or did not know; and here would be a home school, blending in deep and delightful harmony the deep and warm interest and experience, developed mind, and may be scientific knowledge of the parent, with the active and searching curiosity, confidence, simplicity, sprightlincss, and affection of the ...
Sketches Connected with California History. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
Sketches Connected with California History. PROLOGUE. [continued.] So we come on to the time (1709-70) of Padre Junipero Serra, as he saith in old manuscript, who "at the expenses of the Catholic Monarch of the Expands Senor Don Carlos 111, (who mayGod guard.) subministered by the orders of the enlightened Senor Don Carlos, Marquis de Croix, actual Viceroy and Captain General of this New Spain, by the hands, commission and direction ample and entire, of the illustrious Senor Don Josef de Galvez, of the king's council and household, and of the royal and supreme council of the Indies; Intendente in the army,etc., etc:" established the Missions of San Diego, San Carlos de Monterey, San Gabriel, and San Antonio; and by successive viceroys and priests gathered the Indians of the coast valleys into communities from San Diego in 1709 to San Rafael in 1817—besides sending out to the northwest the maritime expeditions from 1774 to 1791 of Juan Perez, .Juan Bodega de la Quadra, Bruno Heceta, ...
A True Man. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
A True Man. If I shall describe a living man, a man that hath that life that distinguishes him from a fowl or a bird, that which gives him a capacity next to angels; we shall find that even a good man lives not long, because it is long before he is born to this life, and longer yet before he hath a man's growth. He that can look upon death, and see its face with the same countenance with which he hears its story ; that can endure all the labors of his life with his soul supporting his body ; that can equally despise riches when he hath them, and when he hath them not; that is not sadder if they lie in his neighbor's trunks, nor more brag if they shine round about his own walls ; he that is never moved with good fortune coming to him, nor going from him; that can look upon another man's lands, evenly and pleasedly as if they were his own, and yet look upon his own and use them, too, just as if they were another man's; that neither spends his goods prodigally, and like a fool, nor yet...
A Word for Wives. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
A Word for Wives. ALMA GREY. What is it? A little pencil note, crumpled and worn, as if carried for a long time in one's pocket. I found it in a box of precious things that Fanny's mother had hoarded so choicely, because Fanny had been choice of them. I must read it, for every thing of Fanny's is dear to ns now. Ah! 'tis a note from a gentleman who was at school with us at F , whom Fanny esteemied so much, whom we both esteemed for his 'sterling integrity, and his gentleness. It is precious, too. as a reminder of him. I love the remembrance of old schoolfellows, —of frolicksome, foolish, frivolous, loving schooldays. But let me read. 'Tis mostly rubbed out, but here is a place. ' "You know full well that long since, 'that dear cousin' permitted me to call her by the endearing name of sister; and may I not, when far away, thinking of bye-goncs. add your name to hers in the sisterly list? You asked me when I had heard from the dear one: she was down here a short hour last week, but wh...
MARKET REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855
MARKET REPORTS. Thk condition of the markets, generally, is such that if we believe common report and newspaper items, we would pronounce, dull, very dull. The price of most merchandise is made by auction prices. Some staples are in good demand; but the large amount of arrivals check any advance in prices, except Grain and Flour. Both these articles are firm and advancing. Wheat, best, firm, 2c | Barley, best, 1 V 4 3il%c ; Oats, best, 2®2V(jC; Flour, Cal., $6®s7l Gallego and Haxall, #12M»® $13. The advance of these articles of produce and the demand for shipment, together with large shipments already made, speaks well for our State, and should speak hope to the husb and man.
