This is the name given by Austra
lians to ii species of acacia, n native
of that continent. Like tho eucalyp
tus, it has several vaiieties: unlike
' the eucalyptus, it docs not attain to
a great size. Tho two principal
vaiieties arc known as the black or
gum wattle and the silver wattle.
Tho silver wattle makes a pi city
ornamental tree, in gardens or near
to icsidcnccs. The gum wattle pro
duces a highly-scented, yellow
' )iosom, pleasant to the eyes and
grateful to the olfactories. Resides,
it has a commeicial value, its gum
, being used for making mucilage aud
its baik for converting raw hides
into leather. The batk is shipped
fiom the trees when they nic two or
thiec years old, and is largely ex
ported as well as being in gicat de
mand at home. It is considered one
of tho very best tanning matctials
known. Of course, the lciuoval of
,thii baik kills the trees, but, as they
have already diopped their seeds,
others spiing up and take their
places. In paits of Austmlia a
gieat many families gain their liveli
hood by gajhciing tiie gum and
baik. of these trees. AVe say fami
lies, because it is done largely by
women and children.
' Olir object ih giving the foiogoing
btief outline is to suggest the ex
periment of trying the wattle here.
The eucalyptus and other Australian
tiei'f have been successfully trans-
.planted to these islands; but, so far
".as we know, no attempt has been
made to introduce the wattle. We
'sec no reason for supposing that it
would be any more dilllcult to ac
climatize than the eucalyptus. As
tho Government arc wisely intcicst
ing themselves in the lestoration of
our forests, and are procuiing from
-other countries seeds and plants of
vniious kinds of trees supposed to
be suited to our climatic conditions',
they might do worse than 'accept
the suggestion. We have little doubt
that the wattle would thrive in our
soil and climate, and besides making
a lovely forest in quick time, its
gum and baik might become one of
'the sources of the country's future
For the information of any one
who may bo desious of procuring
the seed, we would say that Wai.tt.u
Him., lvQ., Curator of the Jiotunic
Gardens at Riisbane, Queensland,
will gladly send them on application.
We have authority for saying that
this accomplished and enthusiastic
botanist will be pleased to send
seeds or plants of any kind of Aus
tralian tree to any one here, in ex
change for seeds or plants of trees
of these islands.
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS.
