They dont make quite so much noise about their sayings and doings as some ' bothers, but they are always useful and practical. The address is very clever.

The New Edition of Downing's Landscape Gardening, with a supplement, by H. W. Sargent, Esq., of Wodenethe, North River, is nearly ready for publication. It is a beautiful tribute from a most successful amateur, Mr. Downing's literary executor, and is in all respects truly valuable. No one can plant the present spring without consulting its lists of new trees, and no lover of books and literature but will admire the execution, and the information of the letter press. It arrived as we close our columns, and we must speak of it more at large in our next issue. A. O. Moore, publisher.
