A tree with the habit of the Tulip, lifts itself into the finest pyramids of foliage, exactly suited to the usual width of town streets - and thus embellishes and shades without darkening and encumbering them. Besides this, the foliage of the Tulip tree is as clean and fresh at all times, as the bonnet of a fair young quakeress, and no insect mars the purity of its rich foliage.

• Though there ere grand avenues of it in the royal parka of Germany - raised from American seeds.

† At Wakefield - the fine country seat of the FISHER family, near Philadelphia, are several tulip trees on the lawn, over 100 feet high, and three to six feet in diameter.

We know very well that the Tulip tree is considered difficult to transplant. It is, the gardeners will tell you, much easier to plant Ailanthuses, or, if you prefer, Maples. Exactly, so it is easier to walk than to dance - but as all people who wish to be graceful in their gait learn to dance (if they can get an opportunity,) so all planters who wish a peculiarly elegant tree, will learn how to plant the Liriodendron. In the first place the soil must belight and rich - better than is at all necessary for the Maples - and if it cannot cannot be made light and rich, then the planter must confine himself to Maples. Next, the tree must be transplanted just about the time of commencing its growth in the spring, and the roots must be cut as little as possible, and not suffered to get dry till replanted.

There is one point which, if attended to as it is in nurseries abroad, would render the tulip tree as easily transplanted as a maple or a poplar. We mean the practice of cutting round the tree every year in the nursery till it is removed. This developes a ball of fibres, and so prepares the tree for the removal that it feels no shock at all.* Nurserymen could well afford to grow Tulip trees to the size suitable for street planting, and have them twice cut or removed before hand, so as to enable them to warrant their growth in any good soil, for a dollar a piece. (And we believe the average price at which the thousands of noisome Ailanthus that now infest our streets, have been sold is above a dollar.) No buyer pays so much and so willingly, as the citizen who has only one lot front, and five dollars each has been no uncommon price in New York for "trees of heaven".

After our nurserymen have practiced awhile this preparation of the Tulip trees for the streets by previons removals, they will gradually find a demand for the finer oaks, beeches, and other trees now considered difficult to transplant for the same cause - and about which there is no difficulty at all, if this precaution is taken. Any body can catch "suckers" in a still pond, but a trout must be tickled with dainty bait. Yet true sportsmen do not, for this reason, prefer angling with worms about the margin of stagnant pools, when they can whip the gold spangled beauties out of swift streams with a little skill and preparation, and we trust that in future no true lover of trees will plant " suckers" to torment his future days and sight, when he may, with a little more pains, have the satisfaction of enjoying the shade of the freshest and comliest of American forest trees.

* In many continental nurseries, this annual preparation in the nursery, takes place until fruit trees of bearing size can be removed without the slightest injury to the crop of the same year.

Shade Trees In Cities #1

It was fitting that the last essay of Downing to his renders, should be on his favorite subject of trees; and never has he talked to us more wisely, nor upon any subject can his advice be better heeded. It were useless to comment upon what has been so well and fitly spoken. If any one characteristic of good taste stood marked and prominent in the affections of our late friend, it was his deep love of the scenery of his native land, in its freshness and grandeur, clothed with its own luxuriant forest trees. He has made them classic by the graces of his pen, and taught us all to love and admire them beyond any and all others.

Had I the melancholy privilege to select the final resting place of Downing, it should be on the sunny breast of a hill looking out upon the Hudson, near the place of his birth and his residence. It should be where the pure waters of a bubbling spring would call out the earliest flowers of the season, and freshen the green turf beneath the sere and yellow leaves of the waning year. A group of noble forest trees should protect, with their deep shadow, a plain marble shaft bearing simply his name and age - all within a neat iron railing. In this hallowed spot would the Blue-bird carol his first song to the returning spring, and the Redbreast chaunt his last sad wail over the departing autumn - simple, touching, beautiful. Such should be the burial place of the most accomplished Horticultural writer of his time!

The Curcalio Warfare - a Successful Balth-(?) - "Don't shout till you are out of the woods,*' my friend. Try it another year or two, and see if you remain successful. We have already been told in these columns, by those who have tried it, that whitewash amounts to but little in preventing the ravages of this pest, and I am more than half of that opinion. Still, we arc inclined to heed your experience with all due respect, and hope that it may prove successful hereafter.
