We notice that travellers in America are beginning to be surprised at the growing taste for flowers. A correspondent of the Journal des Roses, says that "no one would doubt that Alcibiades, Anacreon, Socrates or Caesar, would stop to admire a Paul Neyron, or Marechal Niel, for the Greeks and Romans decorated their assemblies with flowers; but that flowers should be thought worthy of being sent to an American Senator caught me by surprise; but there was the 'pupitre' of Senator Kasson, of Iowa, loaded with choice presents, among which I noticed Roses, General Jacqueminot, Niel, Pactol and Lamarque".
