This tree, better known in America under its pendulous form, makes a very noble tree when fully developed. The whitish yellow flowers are in racemes like those of the locust. We have seen flowering trees in the vicinity of Rochester, Bethlehem, Philadelphia, and other parts of the Union, but we do not know who has the finest specimen.

The finest specimen in Europe, M. Andre says, is probably at the village of Villennes, on the borders of the Seine, near Poissy. This was planted in 1795. It is in the middle of the public park there. The head has a spread of one hundred and thirty-three feet, and is of a proportional height-The trunk has a circumference 13 1/4 feet. So far as we can remember the American specimens referred to would be about four feet in circumference.
