At the meeting on the 22d of March, Mr. W. Paul, the celebrated rose grower, gave an address on the literature of gardening. After the passage of the dark ages, horticulture took a wonderful leap, in which great efforts the Italians and the Dutch took the lead - the French and English then followed closely with their writings. The new era in gardening came in with the 17th century. It is however from the dawn of the present century that the best literary efforts in behalf of gardening have been made.
