Catalogue of Fruit and Ornamental Trees, and Plants, Knox Nurseries, Vincennes, Indiana. By Simpson, Ten Brook & Co. Our parish is indeed extensive when such fine catalogues of everything valuable reach us from such long distances as we chronicle this month.
Catalogue for 1858 and 1859, of Gloaming Nursery, Clarksville, Habersham County, Georgia. By Jarvis Van Buren. A great variety of valuable fruit.
Catalogue of Fruit and Ornamental Trees, etc, etc, at the Morris Nurseries. J. L. Darlington & Co., WestcheBter, Pa., 1858-59. This well known establishment continues to sustain its reputation. They also issue a Wholesale price list of importance.
Wilcox & Felt's descriptive Catalogue of Fruit-Trees, West Feliciana Nurseries, Bayou Sara, Louisiana.
Catalogue of Superb Dutch Bulbous Roots, imported and for sale at Bridgeman's Horticultural Establishment, 876 and 878 Broadway, New York. These bulbs we have noticed elsewhere; they are priced in this list and cheaper than we have noticed in any other, say from eight to fifty cents for Hyacinths, and for Tulips five to twenty cents.
Catalogue of Annual, Biennial, and Perennial Flower Seeds sold at Bridgeman's 876 and 878 Broadway, New York. Ditto of Vegetable Seeds, same proprietors; both of these contain ample lists of pure seeds. We see in the last, Garlic sets, at thirty cents per pound: some gourmets will thank us for noticing the fact.
Keystone Nursery, P. A. Mish, Proprietor, Harrisburgh, Pa. A great list of valuable and popular fruit and shade trees, strawberries, raspberries, etc. etc. Such a nursery must be an acquisition to any neighborhood.
Catalogue des Especes et Varietes de genres Hosiers Remontants, cultives par Francois Fontaine, a Chatillon-les-Baigneux (Seine) France; Paris, 1858.
Horticultural Monthly, Morrisania, New York.
The Illustrated Annual Register of Rural Affairs, and Almanac. By J. J. Thomas, Albany and New York, Tucker and Son, and New York, C. M. Saxton. This little cheap volume contains a world of good sense, as indeed one might expect from the care of the editor. There is no farmer that would not be benefited by its perusal, and it is a convenient almanac for all.
Catalogue of Fruit and Ornamental Trees, cultivated and for sale by Peters, Harnden and Co., Atlanta, Georgia. This is the state for fruit growers', from the nature of its soil and climate, and that it must partly supply us at the north is becoming evident; we see a demand made upon the railroads running to the Atlantic for large additions to the " fruit cars," - a good sign. Peters, Harnden and Co., and P. J. Berckmans and Co., will not be behind any demand that may be made for the trees.
Descriptive Catalogue of Vines, etc., with explanatory remarks and indications for cultiva. tion. By C. W. Grant, Iona, near Peekskill, N. Y. A valuable pamphlet received too late for more extended notice this month: in our next we shall give some remarks on the grapes noticed, from the pen of Charles Downing. Dr. Grant has a fine stock of all the best grape vines.
Buist's Almanac and Garden Manual, Philadelphia. Like most things that the author does, this is well done, and we shall notice it again, giving Mr. B.'s long experience on the list of "best" roses, etc.
Descriptive Catalogue of Fruits, Hardy Ornamental Trees and Shrubs, etc.; Louis C. Lishy, Nashville, Tenn. A very full and valuable list. Other Catalogues were received too late.
