Crawford's Early and Early Bernard were recommended for general cultivation. The Early York, best Early Peach, large White Cling, recommended. Tippecanoe, not well known. Old Mixon Free, good, but surpassed by Early Strawberry. Crawford's Late, recommended. George the Fourth, best of its season. La Grange, thought good.

Peaches #1

The freezing and thawing of last winter we supposed, at the time, to be fatal to our Teach buds; yet, as frequent as these variations of temperature were, they produced no unfavorable effect Every Peach tree which came under our observation was loaded to its utmost capacity. One farmer in this place, where a dozen years ago planting Peach trees was thought an act of folly, after supplying his family and remembering his neighbors with kind liberality, had a surplus of forty bushels for market. At the horticultural exhibition in September, the display of this fruit from Central and Southern Berkshire, would, for quality, challenge competition with any section of our country. An individual in Stockbridge exhibited twenty-two varieties of seedlings, which were all fine, and of which three-fourths were worthy of general cultivation. So there is no mistake but that Western Massachusetts, as rough as her soil and as severe as her climate is, may raise at least a good supply of Peaches for her own consumption.

Peaches #2

The orchard-house has the past season been of great assistance in developing the qualities of Peaches which might otherwise have remained unknown for some years. The Bourdine is one under this category, for it has been confounded with the LateAdmirable, whereas it is much larger, ripens a week or ten days after it, and is a most excellent late Peach for the orchard-house.

The American Peaches, hitherto thought lightly of in this country on account of our climate being too humid for them when cultivated on walls in the open air, are of the highest excellence in the orchard-house. Scott's Early Bed, ripening about the middle of August, and George IV, ripening the second week in September, were this season juicy, vinous, and rich beyond any other varieties. The Early York was also very good, and the Large Early York equal to George IV. These Peaches are more piquant and racy in their flavor than the European varieties.

A new late Grosse Mignonne Peach (Mignonne grosse tardive), gained by Monsieur Lepers, of Montreuil, from a sporting branch of the Grosse Mignonne, is a most excellent variety. It ripens a fortnight later than its parent, and is equally good.

Monstreuse de Doue, a seedling raised from Reine des Vergers, is a new French variety, like its parent in excellence of flavor, but very large, and more deep in color than most Peaches. Its skin is entirely of a deep crimson.

The Angers Large Purple is one of the largest and finest of Peaches, and ripens about the same time as the Chancellor, or rather just after, forming a capital succes-sional Peach.

Gregory's Peach, raised from seed in Gloucestershire, is a very hardy late Peach, melting and very good. It closely succeeds the Late Admirable, and is a most abundant bearer.

Peaches #5

The Peach trees are all dead. So there will be no more peaches until a new crop of trees are grown. We hope no one will fail to make new efforts in behalf of Peach trees. If they do, they may succeed; if they do not, they will certainly raise no peaches, and it is better to fail in making an effort in a good cause, than to fail through lack of effort.
