The Horticultural Exhibition this year, has been eminently successful, in every point of view. The long continued summer drouth, extending even into the autumn, had created serious fears of a partial failure. Many kinds of fruit seriously felt its effects, especially the Pear, the growth of which seemed almost suspended for some time, yet the subsequent favorable weather so nearly recovered them, that the fruit exhibition would compare well in quality with that of any former year, while in quantity, it was the largest exhibition ever made by the Society. We have not space for details, but will merely annex the list of Premiums:
