We are obliged to our Summerville, S. C, correspondent, for expressing a doubt as to the correctness of the editorial note at page 228, that the beautiful vine she described as such a lovely ornament of her porch, was probably Smilax laurifolia. She now sends a specimen, which proves to be a neighboring species, Smilax lanceolata. The leaf is not so leathery as S. laurifolia - having more of the delicacy of the Smilax of the florists, which by the way is an asparagus and not a true Smilax. Both this and the laurifolia are well worthy of admittance into the regular stock catalogue of beautiful climbing vines for general cultivation.
