AGRICULTURAL, &o. 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 offered to the public. Their great superiority over other powers, consists sn the plan ot 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 thf? 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 the.-c powers, during which time they have been thoroughly tested, and gained a high reputation over all others: ...

THOUGHT IS FREE. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 24 May 1855

THOUGHT IS FREE. Thought is free I Chainlesß as the unfathomed sea. Buoyant as the breath of Heaven, Rapid as the gleaming levin : It was born before tho light, And will last beyond the night. Thought is free I " Free as air men's thoughts should be," So English Alfred said; So did preach the martyred dead In the land in time of old, Where truth bravoly yet is told. Thought is free I In the woods of Germany Herman did old Rome withstand ; Dauntless Luther lit his brand : And still in that realm of cloud Breathe thoir souls as through a shroud. Thought is free I ' In the vaults of Italy, 'Neath the grey sepulchral stones, Late it stirred the old dry bones, And its flash electric ran Down the gloomy Vatican. Thought is freo t France, to purchase liberty, Though the price of blood she paid, Ol" the boon seems half afraid; But no fetters yet may bind In that land the forvent mind. Thought is free t Peaceful be its victory I But at times its latent force, Bursting, takes a whirlwind's co...

A Drunkards's Trick. —Swartz was a drunkard. He was once engaged to ornament the ceiling of a public building, and was to be paid so much per day for his work; but he was so fond of tippling that his employers were obliged to hire another man to watch the tipsy painter. Finding that he could not go to the tavern as often as he wished, he resolved upon practicing a piece of deception. He stuffed a pair of stockings and shoes similar to those he was in the habit of wearing, and hung them down from his staging whenever he left his work. The watchman called in two or three times every day, but seeing a pair of legs hanging down, suspected nothing, and reported to his employers that Swartz had reformed! The roguish painter thus contrived to absent himself for whole days. Seen and not Seen. —A worthy miller wishing for a portrait of himself, applied to a painter to have it accomplished. "But," paid he, "as I am a very industrious man, I wish to be painted as looking out of the window of m...

Agricola's Letters.—No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855

Agricola's Letters. —No. 1. INTRODUCTORY. There is no other life so agreeable to an unsophisticated mind as that of the Country, where, more particularly, we hold converse with Nature, and riot in the enjoyment of her charms in her favorite haunts. But " The plowboys whistle and the milkmaid's song." " The woods and lawns and living stream at eve," "The ooltage home from towns and strife remote," and all the combined enticements of r*ural inno-' cence, and rural scenery together, would cease, and go to waste and ruin, did not the skillful farmer, H with eye of observation," continually direct the natural gifts of Heaven into their proper channels, and apply his useful labor to render nature doubly beautiful and attractive. Agriculture, properly speaking, is both a Scienc and an Art—the Scientific department consisting in ascertaining the nature and qualities of soils by chemical and other means, the analysis of plants and of manures, and the philosophical reasons for ever}' requisit...

Protection of Home Industry—Mechanic Arts, [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855

Protection of Home Industry—Mechanic Arts, To the Editor of the California Farmer: Sir —The social and political alTairs of California seem to be undergoing a very minute analization, inviting as they are all the philanthropy and philosophy that the sentinels of its future independence and prosperity can put in requisition. Yet there are not many flying to the rescue of our young State from the internal disorder which is fast discoloring her fair and lovely figure, though adding as she did another bright star to the enviable, but I hope enduring, constellation. The bridal plumage which she has worn since her annexation, is now so much tainted by treachery and corruption as to nearly cause a mortification of her entire frame. The men who have been fed and fattened, and made aristocrats, by sucking the open pores of her golden heart, have for the most part become the Arnolds of her tottering disease, and who would in all probability smile at her agonizing groans if their own clandesti...

Hindrances to California Prosperity. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855

Hindrances to California Prosperity. With good intent our public journals are weekly suggesting plans of various kinds to relieve the State from its present embarrassments —among them are: plans to induce emigration to our shores —plans to induce our steamers to offer special encouragement to emigrants—plans to form Immigrant Associations, and man}- other plans that may appear feasible. All these have appeared from time to time in the columns of the California Farmer, for a year or more; but this is not the most important thing to be done. There is one thing paramount to all others, that must be done, before we can expect a large immigration of permanent settlers, of the right kind. We must furnish the citizens of the old States with the right kind of information about California. We must give them reliable information as to our climate, soil and productions; we must show them we have a country fit to live in; a country that has moral, social, and intellectual privileges and blessin...

To Grain Growers. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855

To Grain Growers. The present condition of the grain interest of California demands more than a passing notice from a journal like ours, professing as it does, to guard this great and growing interest of our country. The prospect of large crops of wheat and barley is before us, and it is readily admitted that the conditions of the growers arc such, in many districts, that unless a generous sympathy is felt, aiuWt disposition shown to aid those who have met with reverses, and unless the present price is fully maintained, there will be many a field that will go unharvested for want of means to gather the crop. The great cost of the harvesting implements utterly precludes the possibility of their purchase by all who need them. For in the present depressed state of trade they can only be bought for ready cash, and this farmers have not got. We mean all that need these implements. It is for reasons like these that we urge that in every county there should be meetings called of those inte...

Members to State Agricultural Society. The California State Agricultural Society has been duly organized and in operation more than one year; and having held its first State Exhibition is now entering upon the preparatory labors and duties of its Second Grand Exhibition. By reference to the Fabmer of last week and of every alternate week, the list of premiums will be found, embracing agriculture and its kindred interests, and a large and generous list of prizes worthy a spirit of friendly strife and emulation. It is highly important that the plans of the society should extensively known and widely disseminated. It is important too that all who are owners and cultivators of the soil should take an active interest in the State Society ; that they should come forward voluntarily-and enroll their names as members, attend its meetings, aid in all those plans that will tend to develop the resources of our growing State. Members tickets are now ready at the Society's rooms. Ten dollars con...

California State Agricultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855

California State Agricultural Society. We published last week the list of premiums to be awarded by the State Society, at the coming Annual Fair, to be holden at Sacramento city in September next. It is to be hoped that all who are interested in Agriculture, or in any branch of Home Industry, will give immediate attention to the invitation of the State Society, and unite with them in preparing for such an exhibition as will do honor to the State.
