By a circular we learn that the whole of the rare collection of plants for which the firm of Geo. Such is so justly famous was to be sold at public sale on the 11th of the past month, in order to " settle the business relations heretofore existing between Geo. Such and Charles and John J. Ridgway." It is to be hoped that this is not the end of one of the most honorable and enterprising firms in the introduction of rare plants we have in America.
