High Prices East. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
High Prices East. The present high prices of all kinds of provisions and produce abroad should serve as an encouragement to stock raisers, dairymen, grain growers, farmers and produce dealers of all kinds in our State. The war in Europe has created a larger demand, and its continuance has withdrawn the laborer from the field to other avocations, thus decreasing the crops, while an increased supply is needed. From a combination of circumstances not wholly explained, with increased crops, there is almost a certainty of high prices ruling for grains, flour, produce and provisions of all kinds, for some time to come, even till or after the new harvest. By reference to our extracts from New York prices, it will be seen that eastern markets rule higher than our own for flour, grain and produce. California can spare a largo amount of each and have enough left; and while we would urge a large shipment we would again urge shippers to look well to the condition of articles shipped, especially...
Land Titles. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
Land Titles. One of the greatest obstacles to the improvement of our immense territory may now be considered as removed, and all those original claims like that of Fremont and Richie, may now be claimed from authority as already confirmed, for the same rules and principles that have been ap plied to those cases will be applied to all others, and in a brief time the difficulties will disappear, and peace, order and prosperity will take the place of riot, bloodshed and ruin. The generous proposition of General Sutter to those who have for years held his property, without rent, should awaken sufficient gratitude to bring them to a prompt and amicable adjustment. We learn that T. 0. Larkin, Esq.. a large land owner in Colusi, Butte and Sonoma counties, has manifested great liberality in the adjustment of claims. It is a pleasure also *o record the fact that C. M. Weber, Esq., of Stockton, has shown very great liberality to those who are upon the grounds lately confirmed to him. Acts lik...

A much larger trade in fruits is carried on with ports in the Mediterranean, which supply annually something like seventy or eighty cargoes—principally oranges.

Twelfth Legislative Agricultural Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
Twelfth Legislative Agricultural Meeting. The ticelftti and concluding meeting of the series was held on Tuesday evening. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Flint, Secretary of the Board of Agriculture, who made some interesting remarks appropriate to the closing meeting. He felt that the discussions during the meetings just closing had been of an unusually practical and useful character, and that they had personally benefitted all who had listened to them; while the reports which had been published had been read and copied throughout .the length and breadth of the land. The subject for this evening's discussion, The Economy of Agriculture, was one which embraced all the practical details of farming, and not only those, but the broader question of the duty of the State to promote the interests of agriculture. He concluded by announcing His Excellency Governor Gardner, as the Chairman for the evening. The Governor, on taking the chair, expressed his interest in the cause of agric...
Home-made Bread. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
Home-made Bread. Messrs. Editors : Your correspondent E. D. P., must have experienced much gratulation to find his important inquiry, how to bring butter in the winter, without spending three days in fetching it, so gratuitously and satisfactorily responded to by so many members of the Cultivator family ; and as good butter deserves good bread, 1 will go out of my way a little, for the purpose of bringing my mite to cast into your treasury. Now, is there one in one hundred of those who live in the country that does not advo cate the use of home-baked bread in preference to that obtained of the baker ? But is there one of all these who has not at times been disappointed in the expectation of obtaining it as it should be, in consequence of ill flavored, dark colored, bitter yeast 1 I trow not. Here it may be well to observe, I never use any " lightening "for bread but brewer's yeast, if that can be obtained by almost any means; knowing by painful experience the difference, when in the...
Butter-making. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
Butter-making. Messrs. Editors: I would notice one very essential point in butter-making which has been entirely overlooked by your correspondents who have written upon the subject of late, and that is. good butter-cows. There is as much difference in cows as there is in hutter makers; these last may be improved, but cows which make white, soft butter, that is a long time coming, cannot; so they had better be sought out and put to some Other use. It is most generally the case, that poor hutter costs the most, on account of its being hard •Co churn, sell, or eat. I have practised butter making fifteen years, and am fully convinced of the truth of the above. Every new cow which comes on the place, and they come often, I give a fair trial by herself, and if she proves satisfactory; well; if not, she is put to some other use besides making butter. Ido not scald my milk, neither put stones or carrot juice in my churn ; only let me select my cows, and I can have good,, yellow, solid butte...
WHERE DWELLETH MUSIC ! [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
WHERE DWELLETH MUSIC ! Shk seeks a wild homo in the ocean's roar, In the floating breezes she lores to soar, In the moaning wind, in the waterfall— Oh, the spirit of music dwells in them all. This fairy being hath many a tone, And 'tis by her freaks that her pathway is known, For the blackbird's song in the rustling tree As the spirit passes grows firm and frco. Her presence is Mt with the deepest sway When the gorgeous daylight is passing away, And the ling'ring sunbeams their brightness cast, Each one in radiane outvieing the last— They rest on the church, and its towering spire Glows to the earth with a brightening fire; Then to the bruok, as it dunces so free, In the tiny streamlet a rainbow see. Though we cannot see her, I know she is nigh When twinkling stars are gemming the sky, And the glorious moon hi the silver-cloud Is sailing enwraped in her vestal shroud. Oh, there's solemn music at daylight's close In the hush of fair Nature's calm repose; Ye need not search lor that s...
BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
BEAUTY. Never yet was there the beauty That with time would not decay • Never yet was there the flower, Bowed by dew or washed by shower, On the heath or in the bower, But would droop snd pine away ; Never breeze, thuugh sweetly sighing Through the grove and o'er the plain, But had kissed the frail and dying That can never bloom again. Time and beauty chime together Till we press our childhood's hour; But when most we need the charming Of our graces, Tune's alarming Speed is all our grace disarming, And we chill bcueuth his puwer. Reason bows at beauty's shrine; Passion thinks her all divine; Men adore, admire, and love, O'er the earth for beauty rove; Find her but a tender flower Blooming in the sheltered bower ; Rive her from her parent stem — Gaze awhile upon her bloom— Gaze upou her hundred graces— Press her o'er and o'er again; But she dies in their embraces, Fleeting time her bloom erases, Time und sorrow leave their traces— Each is lord of beauty's reign. — Life Illustrated. ...

Dennie and his Father; [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 31 May 1855
Dennie and his Father; OR, THE DOUBLE PLEDGE. On the shores of the beautiful Horicon, nowknown as Lake George, in the eastern part of New York, there lived, a few years ago, a clergyman. His happy family of five daughters, and a darling son. a boy of more than ordinary promise, were growing up under the influence and instruction of such parents as few children could boast. Happy among themselves, with their home amidst the most beautiful scenery in nature, life seemed to them a bright and glad rcaljty. But occasionally a shadow of anxiety might have been detected on the. usually calm brows of both father and mother. The time at which my story commences was before the days of temperance. It was when every family kept a supply of ardent spirits constantly on hand ; and children were accustomed to the dangerous beverage daily. So it was in this family. The little " Dennie," accustomed every morning to his glass of bitters, and to treat every time a friend called upon tho family during ...
