THIS Society held its exhibition in the Thatched House, Hammersmith, on the 9th ult. There was a goodly display of this favourite flower, and a spirited competition. Mr. Edwards of Holloway obtained the first prize for 24 blooms; and Mr. Lane was second. In the Nurserymen's class, the best stand of 36 blooms was contributed by Mr. Turner, and the second by Mr. Bragg, both of Slough. A certificate was awarded to Mr. Hunt's Helen, and also Mr. Waite's seedling prize. Certificates were also awarded to Polyphemus (Thomson), and Tartar (Lane); both good flowers.
