Mr. Conrad Kirchner, of Philadelphia, hands us a dozen kinds of seedling double Geraniums, which he has raised the past season, which shows that new double Ger-raniums may be raised as easily as new Strawberries or new Peaches. We shall soon have to be fastidious as to what we call first-rate. We want now good broad petals, and flowers of regular form. In these respects one of these is like but superior to Asa Gray, and some of the lighter colored ones will probably be distinct enough to merit names and distribution.
