We see it announced that Mr. Hovey will take charge of a horticultural department in the American Cidtivator. We are much pleased at these evidences of a disposition to make eminent attainments practically useful. Science and high taste in art have gone on faster than the people have moved. We think the great want of the day is, that intelligence in every branch of culture should come down to the people. The writer of this, in so far as he is able, has never hesitated to employ voice or pen in any circle where either could be useful. It is peculiarly fitting that horticulture should assist agriculture, and we are pleased that Mr. Hovey has agreed to take this position, and congratulate the Cultivator on having obtained his services.
