A NFW PoTATo,-The following sin
gular origin of which is apparently a new
species of potato. we take from the Maine
Cultivator. The origin ofthe potato now
used is losi in mystery, altbhough the pop
ular tradition hat, long been t hat it sprung
from an excresence parts on a plant in
South America. Does not the following
seem to corroborate this notion.
"-Year before last, Mr. John Smiley, a
farmer in the northern part of Augusta,
nioticed upon some of the stalks of the gil
liflower, which the female memtsers of
his family had cultivated in a flower
pot. some protuberance, or excrescences
like warts about the size of peas. They
appeared prefectly formed and living sub
stances, resembling the seeds that project
from the stalk of that hulbous flower
known as the tiger lily. Every body is
acquaiuted with the gilliflower, as a very
conimon aunnal plant resembling the pink
in size and flower. Curiosity led him to
preserve these excrescences-they were
not the natural seed--ant plant them the
following spring. One (if his neighbors
also took a portion of them and did the
sante. Two or three came tip arid at
tained maturity. The product was over
half a peck ofgood sized and very hanid
some potaitoes! These were preserved
and planted the last spring. They grew
vigorou-ly, and the result. was about three
buhels of a new Stort of real potaoes.
The potato is of oblong from, stooth face,
mostly white, :nixed nceasioiia!!y with
purple. Mr. Iliwchaings, of the Aiiusta
Hoiise, has cooked some of them and
pronounces them superior. They may he
a variety nsorth ctiltivating. But the mvs
teiy in our mind is. that they should have
been the product of the gilliflower. Was
that the way potatoes first came?"
