When in Montreal the editor found it impossible to go with the party who were invited by the Dominion Government to visit Ottawa; but some friends of his, who went on the trip, reported that among the many interesting things which they saw there, the beautiful government gardens were by no means the least. Mr. Robertson, the superintendent of these grounds, received much praise for his good work.

We have on hand a very interesting sketch of these pretty grounds, which we hope to give in an early number.
