Other decorations adorned the windows, and bouquets and vases of flowers in abundance were arranged on the tables, and around the hall.

Among the curiosities that attracted much attention, were pears from the original Endicott pear tree in Dan vers, which tradition says was planted in 1680; some fine looking Orange pears, from a tree two hundred and ten years old on the estate of Capt. William Allen, in Hardy street; also, apples from a tree planted by Peregrine White, the first male child born in New England, on the farm originally settled and subdued by him in Marshfleld. The farm is now occupied and owned by bis direct descendants, by one of whom, Miss Sybil White, the apples were sent to Dr. Merriam, of Tops-field. These relics of past ages are yet productive, and their fruits of no little curiosity.

The display of Fruit was very fine, especially that of Pears, which, for their variety, beauty, and perfection may well challenge comparison with any similar exhibition of this season. Two thousand dishes or baskets of fruit were placed upon the tables, consisting, as will appear from the list, of six Hundred and seventy varieties, viz: of Pears, two hundred and ninety with names, eight seedlings and twenty-nine unknown - total, three hundred and twenty-seven; of Apples, one hundred and fitly-one with names, seven seedlings, and twenty-three unknown - total, one hundred and eighty-one; of Peaches, forty with names, thirty-four seedlings, eight unknown - total, eighty-two; of Plums, nineteen with names, three seedlings, one unknown - twenty-three; of Grapes, thirty-three with names, eight native seedlings - total. forty-one; of Quinces, Nectarines, Figs, and Melons, three each; of Oranges, Lemons, European Walnuts, and Cornelian Cherries, one each.

The specimen flowers were arranged on stands in the hall. The Rose, which, with its hybrid Perpetuals, Noisettes, and Bourbons, is beginning to extend the season of its lovely and fragrant blooms during the autumnal months, was well represented. The Asters, Stocks, and Coxcombs were also conspicuous. A stand of Pansies, and also a stand of Phloxes, Antirrhinum in varieties, Oenothera, Acouitum, Gail-lardia, Tradescantia, Trollius, etc, added much to the interest of the exhibition.

A few pot plants were placed on the platform in front of the arbor, consisting of Achimenes. Gloxinias, Fuchsias, etc, whose showy ana splendid flowers formed a striking contrast with the native denizens of our fields and meadows, grouped in the rear.

The vegetables, etc. were arranged in the anterooms. The display, although not large, was very interesting, and consisted of fine specimens of Squashes, Potatoes, Onions, etc. In this department were placed the Cereals - as varieties of Corn, Wheat, etc. The cultivation of the last named grain is said by the gentlemen who exhibited specimens, to have been successful; and it is greatly to be desired that further experiments should be tried by our agriculturists, to test fully the advantage of its more general introduction. - Report of Com.
