This which commences on the fifth of October, promises to be of interest, not only to Georgia, but to all the United States, and to all the interests therein. Horticulture and Pomology have not been forgotten, and the dates between October 25th, and October 29th, have been selected especially for these. $20 is offered for the best collection of assorted fruits, and various sums, $3 to $10. for samples of each of the leading varieties of Grapes, Plums, Pears, Apples, etc.
For foliage plants and blooming plants, cut flower designs, etc., the premiums are equally liberal. We are glad to learn from a personal visit from Mr. Cole of that city that the prospects for a very fine exhibition are very bright; and that horticulture in general, is very popular.
