We have before us a letter from the Reverend Canon Beadle, a well known English Horticulturist, as well as an esteemed Clergyman of the English Church. The letter was written in his 102d year, and is extremely interesting for the warm spirit of love for horticultural pursuits, as well as for its being a letter from such a famous old man. The writer has, however, ended his days in peace, since the letter was written. We are indebted to Mr. J. Frazer, of Rochester, N. Y., for a perusal of this interesting letter.
