Though peaches were so general a failure this year, there were occasional spots where some were found. A few trees on the grounds of the editor in German-town had a fair crop. At Dr. Warder's at North Bend, Ohio, we had some of the most delicious fruits we ever tasted from one of his trees which escaped when so many companion trees were barren. Across the Ohio in northern Kentucky, we saw immense orchards of remarkably healthy looking trees, without a fruit, - but in the mountains of Tennessee, at from, say 1,000 to 2,000 feet elevation, there were fair crops of good fruit.
