Dear Sir: As we do not profess infallibility, will you allow me to qualify what I stated in the last Horticulturist in regard to the American Summer Fear-main. This apple I hare noticed two or three years on young trees, and it has usually cracked a good deal, so much so, that its quality and bearing properties did not seem to me to warrant its culture with this objection.

This year, however, it ripened in the gardens of two of my friends so finely, that they called my attention to it particularly. With Dr. Camak the tree has borne this year an abundant crop of large fair fruit of the best quality. It ripened about the first of this month. Dr. Wood has it also under the name of "Watkin's Early," and equally fine. Whether the fine season, or maturity of the trees, has made the specimens that come to my notice so much better, this much is certain, that should its good qualities continue permanently, no better summer fruit could be desired. A friend from a neighboring county, states also that with him it is an excellent fruit and a good bearer.

The Gravenstein is now just ripening an abundant crop and though rather acid here is still a good fruit and worthy of cultivation.

Our experience in regard to peach trees, in the the main, coincides with that of Mr. Scott. In ordinary years they bear abundantly but there is no doubt that they are more liable to tyring frosts. This year for instance, I venture to say that I will get as much fruit from a dozen seedlings in my garden, as will be gathered from any hundred northern peach trees in this town. But they generally bear well. Mr. Harwell (be will pardon me for using his name,) writes me in a letter of last month, that his northern peaches are getting acclimated at last, and doing well. From the early Tillotson he gathered. June 5th, a single half bushel, which he sold in Mobile for $10.60.

Our Ohio friends cannot believe the tales from this quarter of the Union, about ever-bearing strawberries. But there is very little doubt that in this climate, if well watered, the straw, berry will bear nearly all the season. Since the 2d of April there has not been e week that my vines have not shown ripe fruit; not much, it is true, for they have had no care, but most after wet weather, and there is not the shadow of doubt, from the testimony of reliable eye witnesses, that Mr. Pea body's statements are entirely correct. With me Burr's New Pine and Large Early Scarlet are the only ever-bearing varieties, Hovey's Seedling is not. Yours very respectfully, Wm. N. White. Athens, Geo. July 9, 1862.
