A correspondent sends us a circular issued in the West, offering the above, and asks what is it? It offers the "cut leaved Russian" and the "common Russian." The former is praised especially as a fine timber tree.
The former is Morus nigra laciniata of old English catalogues, and the latter Morus nigra, the common mulberry of European gardens. We think it quite likely that the wood of the trees would be valuable in the Northwest where the tree is offered. The timber is pretty much of the same character with that of the Osage Orange which is allied to the mulberry.
