Many of the most devoted lovers of Pomona, have been looking forward with bright anticipation to the assembling of this body of very intelligent pomologists. The meeting was held at Chicago from the 4th to 7th of October, aud exceeded the expectations of the most sanguine, in the number and beauty of the fruits presented. They were spread in masses upon extended tables, and constituted one of the most interesting exhibitions ever made in the western country. The chief contributors are here mentioned, to show the range of country represented at the meeting; and the number of varieties grown. But the list is not complete; owing to the hurry of the occasion, it was impossible to procure the whole, while acting with a committee upon a troublesome duty - that of examining nearly two hundred seedling fruits.
