Some unknown friend, from an unknown locality, sends us by express a basket marked as above, and with the note that they were gathered on the 23d. They are fully equal to the best at this date, seen in our markets, and have a very solid flesh, which should give it good market value. They had soured by travel, and the flavor could not be determined. The variety is characterized by a very large number of small seeds set closely together on the surface. We believe all the very firm berries known as good carriers belong to this class.

By a card, received several days after the above was written, we learn that the berries came from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on June 24th, and that the special point claimed for them is that they ripen after other popular kinds are gone. It is evidently an excellent late variety.
