Messrs. Douglass & Sons, Waukegan, Ills., send us specimens of some silver and golden forms of American arbor vita3. They are very beautiful, and it is good work to watch the beds of seedlings, and select these beautiful forms for publication - yet our pleasure has its sad shades. Only think of the terrible, long Latin names these little variations will receive when they get to England! If our very good but somewhat sensitive neighbor of the Garden would strike for a reform here, how gladly would we not co-operate with him !
