A Carl Wolfarth

Very fine purple crimson; a very beautiful variety.


B. J. In order that the layers should root freely, you must water the ground every morning in dry weather - and if you can cover it with moss or short grass as a mulcher it will promote greatly the formation of roots.


This and Bush's Beauty were first shown by D. C. Richmond, Esq. It is said to have originated near Fremont, Ohio. Tree, a strong upright grower and abundant bearer; fruit, medium, globular, slightly flattened; skin, smooth, pale, lemon yellow, with darker suffused dots - slight brownish blush on sunny side; calyx, rather large, with nearly erect segments; basin, medium depth; stem, slender, projecting just beyond the surface; cavity, deep, sometimes with a knob or irregularity on one side, and slightly russeted; flesh, white, crisp, tender, mild, sub-acid; core, above medium, with large capsules, and open in center; seeds, ovate pointed; September ; a most delicious amateur fruit.

Carpenter's White Peach

The same journal remarks: "This splendid peach, has, we are glad to learn, been placed in the hands of nurserymen for propagation and sale. An intelligent friend says of it: 'At all the shows where it has been exhibited, it has received the prize as a superior seedling peach. It has had a four years' trial, and has sustained its character fully. It is not only one of the best, but one Of the largest peaches ever raised. The flesh is uniformly white to the pit. It ripens about the second week in October. Having had opportunities of testing it for three years past, I do not hesitate to say that I consider it a very great acquisition.'"

Carrington's Commissionaire

The object of this journal, it is stated, is to "make known an agency through which non-residents can send to New York, and purchase any article wanted for individual use, or for dealears' supplies, either singly or by the quantity, from a shawl to a steam engine - a penknife to a piano." It is consequently a capital advertising medium. The reading matter is witty and racy to a degree. It is published at 98 Broadway.


Why has this beautiful and superior grape been allowed to lay so nearly unemployed ? On a little bit of a plant, set out in the fall of 1855,1, this season, had at least two dozen bunches of very handsome Cassadys, which fruit was pronounced by some very good judges as the best on the table, where Catawba, Concord, Isabella, and a number of others were shown. Vine, hardy, and a strong grower. Bunch, medium. Berry, hardly medium, the whitest of all the natives, but little pulp, sweet, with an aroma not to be excelled by any foreign variety.

Cassia Chamaerista And Nictitans, (Wild Sensitive Plant.)

Leaving the forest, let us now search that arid sandy plain, for since our visit in spring, its vegetation has entirely changed. We shall now find these two species of Cassia, which are very similar, except the flowers of the first are much the largest. They are bright yellow, with dark centres, produced abundantly on their slender branching stems, which grow about one foot high. As the delicate feathery foliage of these little annuals, like the true sensitive plant, folds be esteemed a weed, yet its numerous spikes of blue flowers render it attractive, and well worthy of notice.
