W. C. B., (Buffalo.) Ton win find Malmaison,Solfaterre, Devoniensis and Chroma-tella, free bloomers in winter, if you give them plenty of room, and allow them to make long shoots. Water with liquid manure occasionally when they are in full growth. S. C. M. The best rose for stocks is Rosa Mannetti, and if you cannot get this, use the common Boursault, (climber;) both these grow readily from cuttings.

Dear Sir: What is the proper time of year to propagate roses by cuttings, for pot growth. I have this, year bought some of the best sorts I could find, and they are now planted out in my garden, and growing luxuriantly. When should they be potted again to bloom in the green-bouse next spring? and ought they to be cut or pruned. Yours, J. T.

[If you take off cuttings the last week in August, and plant them in light soil, under a north wall or fence, they will root and make nice little plants before winter. The end of October will be time enough to take up your Roses. Do not cut them when you pot them; but let them stand until the beginning of the year, when yon may cut them back moderately, and bring them forward for bloom.] Ed.

The finest of climbing roses is the " Cloth of Gold." The finest of yellow roses is the Cloth of Gold. The finest of noisettes is still the Cloth of Gold. And yet how few know it except as a dwarf, grown in a pot or a border, and bearing there a scanty supply of its noble blossoms. Nevertheless, it yields to none in the power of flowering, producing, if properly managed, enormous quantities of golden balls.

Bo says Dr. Lindley. His correspondents agree in adding, that, to bloom it in perfection, it should never be pruned; and we add, that the plant must have Borne age to insure a profuse bloom.

A select list of roses: La Reino, Baronne Prevost, William Jesse, Souvenir de la Malmaison, Coupe d'Hebe, Madame Masson, Madame Vidot, Prince Leon, Lord Raglan, Paul Ricaut, Madame Domage, General Jacqueminot, General Castellane, Paul's Victoria, Auguste Mie, Caroline de Sansal, Duchess of Sutherland, Gloire de Dijon, Cloth of Gold, Doctor Herron, General Pelissier, General Simpson, Madame Knorr, Mathurin Regnier, Paeonia, Pauline Sansezeur, Souvenir de la Reino d'Angleterre, Toujours fleuri, Triomphe D'Avranches, Triomphe de l'Exposition, Imperatrice Eugenie. We give some of the above more to accustom the reader to their names than anything else; being quite new in France and England, they must be rare in America as yet.

A knowing man writes to the Gardeners' Chronicle about Roses: "Let them have an eye to every point that tends to perfection - vigorous habit, constancy, free blooming, and, above all, handsome and abundant foliage, not forgetting high perfume. These are what we must look for, now-a-days, in every new Rose that is brought before the public, and a variety that has not all these qualities more or less in advance of its compeers, has no business to pass muster. Above all, however, let handsome foliage be aimed at; for, as an old cultivator of this lovely flower, I can answer for it that a clean, luxuriant foliage is the very making of a Rose. We amateurs do not want varieties from which a choice bloom can only be plucked now and then. To any beginner in the cultivation of Roses, I would say: "Never rest till you have procured Madame Laflay and William Jesse, and let him add Coupe d'Hebe, Jules Margottin, William Griffiths, Baronne Halles, Duchess of Sutherland, Blairi No. 2 (Hyb. China), Auguste Mie, Prince Leon, Geant des Batailles, Baronne Prevost, Pius IX., and Mrs. Rivers (the best white)".

A late work gives the annexed list of Hybrid Perpetual Roses: "The following are the best Hybrid Perpetual Roses in the greatest number of instances: Geant des Batailles, Baronne Provost, Duchess of Sutherland, Mrs. Elliott, and La Reino (two uncertain kinds, however), William Griffiths, Madame Laffay, and Madame Rivers, Pius IX., and Robin Hood, General Jacqueminot, for brlllianoy, and Dr. Marx, or Robin Hood, or Auguste Mie, or Baronne Halles; but after the first six or eight, there are a dozen of about equal merit".

Roses #6

The new and favorite roses of England, and France, and Belgium, all bloomed magnificently at Rosedale (Mr. Buist's garden, near Philadelphia), the present season, viz: Bacchus, Lord Raglan, Emperor Napoleon, General Jacqueminot, Salet, etc., and will soon be ready for dispersion among amateurs of this most charming of flowers.

The Rose #7

The Rose, with all her beauty, has only of late years become a "florist's flower." With all her glowing colors and her rich perfume, she has been wofully wanting in shape; and we have only to recall, in proof, a pan of Roses, as exhibited some ten or dozen years ago. Blooms, large and beautiful (if you did not mind the green "eye"), were plenteous; but blooms like Paul Ricaut, Madame Rivers, Louise Peyronney, and many others, which we shall see in July, were indeed few and precious.
