The only kinds in perfection being the May duke, Elton and American Heart. A premium for the best cherry (the Elton) was awarded to Mr. Barnard, and deservedly too. Mr. Worden had as usual a large collection of the best sorts. - among them the Elton, American Heart, Black Tartarian and Down-ton. Mrs. L. B. Crocker presented the Napoleon Bigarreau, Graffion and other fine varieties.

At the close of the exhibition the articles were sold. The society numbers about 250 members whose contributions, added to the proceeds of the fairs amount to a very respectable sum, which is disbursed in premiums and books, thus encouraging competition, diffusing knowledge, and promoting a taste for horticultural pursuits.

Our next exhibition is to be held in September, when our peaches and pears will be in season - the crop of which promises to bo very abundant. Many of the orchards planted withturn to the proprietor for bis outlay of money and time. The city and town of Oswego must, this year, have a very large surplus of the finest apples for export; and of peaches, a sufficiency to meet the home demand. There is a prospect too, that the demand for choice pears will be measurably supplied. I notice in many places, arrangements for the culture of the Isabella and Catawba grape, on a pretty extensive scale - and the crop must be a large one. I trust our citizens will not neglect the cultivation of these varieties, yielding, as they do, liberal and sure returns for a small amount of labor and space. Yours, etc. J. M. Casey, Rec. Sec. Oswego Horticultural Society.

The Berkshire Horticultural Society held its first meeting for the exhibition of fruits and flowers, at Lee, on the 3d of July. Present E. Williams, Esq., Vice-President, in the chair.

The exhibition of flowers surpassed that of any former period, for the corresponding months, and the display of fruit, though limited to strawberries, (cherries, in consequence of the lateness of the season, not being in maturity,) was enough to tempt any one to exclaim in favor of their cultivation.

The first premium on strawberries was given to William G. Backus, of Pittsfield, $2; and the second to Edward Pomeroy, of Pittsfield, $1. Mrs. Hon. Wm. Porter, of Lee, exhibited more than 30 varieties of the Rose, beautifully arranged in tasteful pyramids. These roses were roses, none of your half formed, stinted productions, such as are too often seen among the grass and weed plots of those who "don't care nothin about flowers! 'taint no profit to raise em." In form, they were nearly perfect; in shade, rich; in variety, forming agreeable contrasts. Mrs. Porter received the first premium, $1. Mrs. G. W. Platner, of Lee, a large and rich variety, 2d premium, Breck's Book of Flowers. Mrs. Sarah L. Clark, of Richmond, 3d premium, Bridgeinan'sFlorist's Guide. The first premium on Perpetual Roses, to Edward Pomeroy, Pittsfield, $1. Second premium to Mrs. Curtis, of Stockbridge, Breck's Book of flowers.

On cut flowers, to Mrs. Chamberlain, of Lee, $1. Mrs. George Hull, of Sandisfleld. Breck's talented address was given by Hon. H. W. Bishop, of Lenox.

The next exhibition will be held at Pittsfield, on the first Wednesday of August. W. Bacon, Secretary. Richmond, July 7,1851.
