To Mr. Mace, of Newburgh, we are indebted for a box of very fine Delaware grapes. We tried to keep them, but it was no use.
To some friend at Springfield, Mass., (name unknown,) we are also indebted for very fine Delaware grapes. We wish he would discover himself, so that we might thank him. - From Connecticut we received some very large and beautiful Flemish Beauty Pears; in all respects excellent. The letter accompanying them was mislaid, and we can not recall the name. The hope of doing so has prevented an earlier acknowledgment. - We have also received many samples of grapes and pears from other parties, all of which, we believe, have been acknowledged in other ways, according to request.
