Fourth Page—The Exile, from tlic Persian ; Morganatic Marriages. Is-General Sheridan coming to Portland? At least it will do no harm to ask him. He *111 be in Boston on MonTlay, and it is necess ary that any measures that are to he taken to invite him in the proper manner should he taken at once. His presence in Pennsylvania and New York is ot immense value to the Union cause. Stump speeches arc well, and mass meetings edifying, but Sheridan is in spiration. He will come to Maine, if at all, t x> late to proluce any immadiate political eft'eot; but his presence will awaken the old patriotic spirit, and give us an opportunity to * show the Democrats that we are not altogether given over to apathy after all. Let him have an official invitation to oome by all means. Every body wants to see him. Home of the soldiers who were in the cavalry will recognize him as an old acquaintance. They saw him at Winchester. It will content the rest of us to see had at Portland. Tbiai, of Jeff. Davis.—The regular fall term of the District Court for'Virginia will he held at Richmond on the fourth Monday ot November. A reliable Washington correspon dent says that when the case comes up for trial the counsel for the defendant will make a mo tion to enter a nolle prosequi, which will he ar gued and decided during the early part of the term. Judge Underwood will be present, but it is possible that Chief Justice Chase will pre side. Stanbcry says that though he lias been consulted he cannot be held accountable for tho manner in which the trial is conducted. Hon. Wm. M. Evarts, of New York, will assist District Attorney Chandler in conducting tlic prosecution. This New York Times has a long editorial on the opinions expressed by the judges oi the Supremo Court of Georgia, iavorablc to sub mission to tho will of Congress. Its moral is * that Judge Rice, who has brought a test case » under tho Amnesty Proclamation before the ( courts, will have his tabor for his pains. In ( this the Times makes two mistakes. Judge Rice lives in Alabama instead of Georgia, and his case will be tried before the United States District Court, Judge Richard Busteed pre siding. Rice claims that the President’s proc lamation entitles him to vote, though ho was a judge before the war and afterwards partici pated in the rebellion. His claim to register having been rejected, he brings the matter be fore the courts, it is said, in accordance with the advice of the President. “ Ohb policy is to put the government into the hands of the democracy, where it is bound to go as there is a God in Heaven.”—Argus. Pretty talk 1 Has not the government been in tlie hands of the democracy through the traitor Tyler’s, Polk’s, Pierce’s and Buchanan’s administration? And what did your Senators and leading men do? Your Davis’s, your Floyd’s, your Mason’s, your Wigfalls', your Slidell’s, your Cobb’s, all leading democrats" What did they do? Declare for secession, and vacate their seats iu Congress. They brought on tho rebellion, and found a large number of northern “white slaves,” as John Randolph used to style the northeru democracy, to go with them. Pm the “government again into tbe hands of the democracy !” will you? We trust the people have become too wise to submit to such degradation. A Loyal Democrat. — —--1 -- A Convention called in Louisiana—All uncertainty in regard to the result of the elec tion is Louisiana is removed by a telegram re ceived by Gen. Grant from Gen. Mower, Dis trict Commander, saying that a Convention is called by a small majority. The expression “small majority,” used in this connection, is by no means to be understood to imply that those who voted for the Convention are ouly clfghtly more numerous than tboso who voted against it, for the latter vote was comparative ly insignficaut. But the law of Congress pro vides that unless a minority of all who regis tered vote either foror against a Convention, none shall be held. This nnnuditi-** w bren ■aueorqni;4 lo the dispatch of General Mower. It is now his duty, or that of General Hancock, if ho sbull take command, within sixty days to issue a notification to tho dcle g iti-s elect to assemble in convention at a time and piaoe to be fixed by the General under command of the District. The Massachusetts Democbacy met as a matter of form at Worcester on Tuesday, as already announced by telegraph. The Boston papers courteously devote some little space to a report of the Convention, but it is of little in terest except to humorists. From tbe speceli of Mr. Parker, who presided, to tbe resolutions, everything was in the old stereotyped Demo cratic way. It was resolved that “each State in the Union is free, sovereign and independ ent”—a good South Carolina resolution for the year 18G0. Then the usual changes are wrung on taxation and debt and government bonds and military govcvuu'int and Radical conup tiou aud Democratic'^ jetity and all tbe other shams and humbugs which have been explod ed and auswered aud passed, upon by tbe peo ple over and over again. A sop to tbe Fenians an.l to the P. L. L.’s completed tbe platform, • The nomination of John Quincy Adams, the sou of our Minister to England, is perhaps re garded as a tine stroke of policy. The name is a good one, but its merit arises from its former association with great men aud great ideas.— Disconnected from these it is no better than John Smith. The Republican papers take this view as appears from tbe following comments of tbo Advertiser and the Journal. The Jour nal says: It is of little consequence, however, whose name figures with that of “scattering” in the returns as appropriating tbo votes not given to the triumphant re-election of Governor Bul lock. We cau ouly regret in this cose that it is a name suggestive of better end more illus trious associations. —Ttfe Advertiser is impressed in tbe same way: The new blood which wa e promised us in tbo selection of the State ticket was forthcoming, and a highly respectable young man was in duced to take tbo chief nomination, although Ids years might well have excused him from this voluntary martyrdom. Snow.—At the lakes in the Northern part ef tbe State on Monday, the snow fell to the depth of ten inches. At Ruinford, Oxford county, there was four inches, which roinaiued on the ground and roots of buildings all day. Such a snow storm Was never before know in these regions in the month of September. Political Notes. Besides the elections iu Pennsylvania, Ohio aud Iowa, next Tuesday, local officers are to b» chosen in Indiana and West Virginia. The next Republican National Convention will probably be held at Chicago. Memphis al so puts in a claim with the rest. The Troy Times is severe on Capt. Raphael Semiues. Noticing his retirement from the Memphis Bulletin, it says: “Though a pretty good pirate, be made a poor editor, and his lit erary piracies were never appreciated.” Graham, the lately defeated Republican can didate for Governor of California, has publish ed a card urging all his supporters to vote the Uniou ticket at the Judicial election in Octo ber. Tbis is the right spirit. X Jcrc is a report current that Secretary Hew ward has received a dispath from Mr. Otter burg, our Minister to Mexico, informing him of his intention to return to the United States. HiB reception by the Juarez government, as Minister, is Represented in letters from that country to have been of the most rigid character The ‘ White Boys in Blue” is a secret politi cal organization which is fabled to be compos ' ed of Ohio soldiers who are attached to the De mocracy. If soldiers, t|jey probably served in the Canadian Brigade. The New York Times argues earnestly against impeachment, and thinks that, unless the President attempts to disperse Congress by force, such a course would be uoconstitution-al. Though the late Ex-Officers, Soldiers and Sailors'Convention at ltichmoud did not in dorse the proceeding of the Radical Convention held at the same place in April, it is warmly applauded by Uunuicutt for its patriotic spirit and its support of the reconstruction policy of Congress. One after another the great Democratic vic tories dwindle dowu to the vanishing point.— They carried New Mexico by fraud,and it now appears that they have not Colorado at all. The Republicans have a majority in both Houses of the Legislature, aud a mijority of nine on joint ballot. One of the Republican speakers in Ohio lik ens the now Democratic mode of paying off gold debts in greenbacks to a man trying to re deem his negotiable paper by giving notes without interest. That is just about what it amounts to. The World takes it for granted that Sheridan is uot entirely en rapport with the Radicals • because he does not make long speeches. But he is so orator as Silkies is. Severe**-A' ('obpeihwd editor »t tha V«rtjjj; dUptaosed Wit-li a lerttre i>n the freedrnen, tleliviTdd l>.v Ot-1. Awlerpon, that he indulged in very severe comments upon that gentleman’s character,going altogether beyond the bounds of decency. The. Colonel being asked bi» opinion of the manifesto replied that it reminded him of a story told by gentleman fresh from the scene oi the Indian depreda tions: A hand of Indians made a sudden attack on a detachment of our soldiers in the mountains. The soldiers had a mountain howitzer, rcoun - ed on a mule. Not .having time to take it oil a i ¥C5 l.n P°Bition, they hacked up the mule and let drive at the Indians. The load was so heavy that mule and all went tumbling down tue hill toward the savages, who, not under standing that kind of warfare, fled like deers. Afterward one of them was captured, and when &9ked why they run so replied: “Me big Injun, not afraid of little guns or big guns, but when a white man load up and fire a whole jackass at Injun, me don’t know what to do. Two Kinds of Speeches.—An exchange after warmly approving the modest little speech made by Sheridan tbe^ other day at his reception in Philadelphia, which will he re membered as a. gem of its kind, contrasts it with one chat Mr. Johnson would have made under the same circumstances. Those who have had leisure and patience to read the Pres ident’s speeches will recognize the hypotheti cal one as true to the style of the genuine: Mr. Mayor—Sir: I regret and am sorry that I do not have and possess language or words sufficient or enough to express and utter my feelings and emotions at this great and high compliment and act of civility. I say that I nave not language to utter my feelings. This is a high compliment, gentleman. I shall re gard it with feelings which it is impossible for me to express. While, 1 regret this and am sorry lor it, 1 can only say that you will please and gratify me very much and exceedingly—I Baythat I shall be gratified by your convoying to the Common Council of the City of Phila delphia, and the citizens and inhabitants, that I feel honored. I say I feel honored. I feel honored, but I can’t, l haven’t the power and ability, and I should like to express and utter my appreciation of tliis welconi ', I say iny ap preciation of this welcome, which I wish you to carry and convey to the Common Coun cil of the City of Philadelphia. This subject brings up Sheridan’s speech at Winchester—as fiue, if not as finished, a piece of declaration as was ever delivered on a bat tle ff f| ftie other way, hoys; face the other We are going back to our camps. We are going to lick them out of their boots.— Boys, this never should have happened if I hud h:CU here. I tell you it never should have hap pened. We arc goiug to get a twist oil them; will get the tightest twist on them yet that ov er you suw. We’ll have all those camps and caunou back again. Distinguished Advocates of Female Suffhage.—The following address to the voters of the Unitod States is signed hy the Governor of Kansas and hy both Senators and the Representative from that State, by Sena tors Wade, Sprague and Nye, Representatives Broomall, Julian, Washburn of Indiana, Ames, Ashley, Louridge, Trowbridge and Driggs; also by Beecher. Phillips, George W. Curtis, Higginsou, Tiltou, Gerritt Smith, Prof. Slowe and other distinguished men ot the country. These names, together with that of Chief Justice Chase are at least sufficient to give respectability to the movement for fe male suffrage. The address is as follows: To the Voters of the \United States — ' In this hour of National reconstruction, we appeal to good men of all parties, to conven tions for amending State constitutions, to the Legislatures of every Slate, and to the Con gress o>'the United States, to apply the. princi ples of the Declaration of Independence to Women. “Governments derive their just powers from the content of the goveroed.*’ The only form of consent recognized under a Republic is suf frage. Mere tacit acquiescence is not consent; if it were; every despotism might claim that its power is justly held. Suffrage is the right of every adult citizen, irrespective of sex or color. Women are governed: therefore they are rightfully entitled to vote. The problem of American statesmanship is, how to incorporate in our institutions a guar antee of tho rights every individual. The so lution is easy. Base governments on the con sent of the governed, aud each class’will pro tect itself. Sale of Government Vessels.—Seventeen vessels belonging to the Navy were offered for sale at auction at the Brooklyn Navy Yard ou Tuesday morning. The terms of the sale were twenty per cent, down, aud the balance in two weeks, at which time the vessel:; arc to lie re moved. The attendance of buyers was quite limited and the bidding slow. The first vessel offered was the North Carolina.** Hugo UucKer, 2G33 tons, 201 feet in length, and51 loot 9 inches beam. She is 51 years old, but is said to he sound above the water line. The first hid tor her was §12,000, from which she was run up to $30,000, aud at that price knocked down to Capt. Carr. The other vessels in the catalogue were then sold as follows: ltbode Is and, tide-wheel steamer, 1617 tons, to Geo. Quint'uvd, for $70,000. Augusta, side-wheel steamer, 1310 tons, for $40,000. Massachusetts, Screw steamer, 110.3 tons, to W. F. Wells, for $30,000. Pontiac, side-wheel steamer, 974 tons, for $17,000. 1 awtuxcl, side-wheel steamer, 974 tons, was passed. Estralla, iron shle-wbcel stamcr, 438 tons, sold for $9000 to Mr. Lamb. Connemaugh, side-wheel steamer, 935 tons, sold t>T $17,100 to Win. Quigley. Tahoma, screw gunboat of 507 tons, sold for $13,000. Sonoma, side-wheel steamer, 974 tons, for $16,900. Oscoelo, same class ami size, sold for $16,000. The others were withdrawn. Tho prices arc said to be low, aud the buyers, in several in stances, to have obtained bargains. Prize Fight in Maine.—The Portsmouth Chronicle says that considerable excitement was occasioned in that city, on Tuesday, by arrival of a large number of pugilists. It was supposed that a prize fight was on tho tapis, and that it would take place on the islands at the ‘‘Shoals,” in this State. Among the celeb rities who conveued at Portsmouth weTo Joe Coburn, llarney AaroD, Lew Baker, Walter Brown, aud several other well-known sporting characters. A special dispatch to the Boston Journal of last evening says that the fight was to take place yesterday, and that the parties militant were Hookey Moore, proprietor of a public house in New York city, and George Hooke, of Providence. The match is for $1000, aud^John C. Hcenan is the stakeholder. Moore left Portsmouth for the “Shoals” yes terday morning, and expeeoted to meet Hockey there, the latter having taken the boat from Boston the previous evening for the purpose of holding the interview. A dispatch, received last evening, states that the fight came off yesterday forenoon, on Smutty Nose Island, one of the Isles of tho Shoals. Moore won the fight in twenty-four rounds, lasting au hour and four minutes. Bangor Lumber Market.—WeJearn from the Bangor Whig fhat the statement of the amount of lumber surveyed from January 1st to Oct. 1st, 1867, compared with tho amount surveyed during the same period in 1863 and 1866, is as follows: 1865. 1806. 1667.

He says: “When an Englishman is a fool, he is the most unendurable of all lords. He has not the vivacious national vanity of a French man, nor docs he rise to the colossal and Niag ara-like grandeur of the arrogance of a typical Yankee. It is not that he is particularly ag gressive in his insolence. He is too conceited for this. Heds wrapped round in fat folds and coils of self-complacency. Nothing that a for eigner can do will bring Britons of this stamp down from their trumpery pedestal. If he is polite, they insist that he is servile or insin cere; if he shows any syintom of self-respect, then he is impudent and forward. He is very sure to prove himself on iW infinitely lower moral level than his critic, do what he will. This is a result that nothing iu this world will alter. The Britou is the llower of civilization, and he does not miud if everybody knows that he thinks himself so. Even over men who are decently sensible at home, this fatuous humor comes the moment they are out of the Dover packet.” —The house at St. Heleua, once occupied by Napoleon L, is now a stable. The French peo ple am indignant about it. —The New York Times does not like the expression, ' Washington of Italy,” as applied to Garibaldi. It says: “I’ossibly be may bq that,—but it would lake ;v great many like him to be the Washington of America, ill Uhsei fisli devotion to the good of his country and to the measures by which he believes it will he promoted, we deem him equal to any mau of auy country and of any age; hut iu sound practical judgment, in willingness to consult the opinions of others, iu the ability to esti mate aright'the force of events and ot public sentiment, and in the wisdom which enables a man to- do what he can and not to attempt what is impossible, Garibaldi falls infinitely be low the great mau who secured for us liberty and independence.” . The D*<trurilctt of th* ro.iei'h Pv«Mtr node. To the Editor of the Press. Tliig object is to be “cuddled** through in some way, and the elaborate and quasi scien tific style of the articles hearing the signature of “Ward Six” sufficiently indicate, if net the person, yet the inspiration of the writer. Referring to article No. IT., in Friday’s Press, it is quite observable how fluent the writer is in the nse of sounding generalities. It would be much more scientific to come down to par ticulars. Then we could form some judg ment of our own about the matter, as well aa test the soundness of the writer himself. For instance, article No. II aBserts and re peats two or three times, that certain “par ties”—a most indefinite term—“three parties,” “to-day, a party,” “another party," “two par ties”—hare heretofore “proposed” to purchase, or have purchased, or want to build upon, land on the northeast front, so called. Now, as this is put forward as a great public matter, why not be a little more particular, and set forth the names of these “parties"? The writer says he knows them— tell ns who they were, or are. Were any of them land speculators or contractors? Were any of them members of the City Council, or of the Committee on Streets? Did any of them pro pose to make large extents of new land on the flats, unless they oouUl get somebody to help them bear the heavy cost of filling ? This writer, for another generality, treats this subject as if it were only a question of opening a way to the flats. But the particular fact, which he keeps out of sight, is, that these flats are perfectly worthless, unless they are filled up with solid earth. Now, to make new laud by moving large quantities of earth is an exceedingly expensive business, as everybody knows who has tried it. Many persons who have commenced such works have had to stop aud look round for somebody to help them.— This is an old story. Thoso who have watched the progress of such matters in this city for the last fifteen or twenty years, are aware that very few cases have occnrred of deep excava tions for new streets, or cutting down old ones, but what it has turned out at length that somebody wanted the material for a fill tome where else, and generally on some private ac oount. This loads to the mention of another of the loose geucralities of article No. II., aud a very inaccurate one. The writer reminds us that some years ago there was a steep bank on the west side of Munjujj—that it bus been graded, cut down—and he says the resuIt is, that“the hill lias become a village, a town of itself, cov ered over, scores of acres, with houses,” &c., &o. Now, the notorious fact is, that in by far the largest and best portion of the settlement on the Hill the streets are laAl, and the houses were built, on the natural surface of the ground, with no excavation at all. Look at St. Lawrence street, Atlantic street, Munjoy street, Lafayette street, and the cross streets between—not only not excavated at all, but not settled by reason of any excavation any where else. On the other hand, go to the junc tion of Cumberland street and Washington street, and walk along towards the north, look mg to the right hand, where those excavations were. There iu a specimen of a “village,” “a town,” such as “Ward Six” proposes to have built on the eastern slope of the Hill. For it is perfectly certain, that if, in the outskirts of a town like Portland, you cut np the land with deep excavations, the adjoining lots will he oc cupied, for an indefinite period, only by those who had as lief have house lots in gulleys and sand-holes as any where else , if they can get the land at a low rate, as they certainly will if if is in that shape. Further, does this scientific writer suppose that we are all ignorant of the fact that nearly the entire mass of the excavation on the west slope of the hill was made by private parties, at their own expi nse? Would he have ns be lieve that a city committee caused all that earth to be removed by contract, at heavy cost to the city? Does he know, or does he not know, that even the streets there—large por tions of them, if not the whole—were graded by individual operators, who took out the grav el/or noliiiny, because they wanted to use it somewhere else? The truth is that modern methods of man oeuvre have made a sad aud fearfully expensive business for tho city out of such wastes. We arc indebted to “Ward Six” for the mention of an instance. Tie tells us or me extension of Commercial street westward, by VaugbaD’s bridge, involving a “vastly large removal «f earth,” and he says that “the parties” who arc pushing the work are men of great wealth, of influence, &c, &c. Generalities again! Why not give us the names, aud the cost ? Why uot tell us the number of thousands of dollars that the city has been made to spend on that work, in this year of our severe distress, and the number of thousands more that be desires to have spent in cutting and digging at the east? Strange to say, no newspaper account or statement has yet given us the contract cost cf the work lately stopped by the Supreme Court. Tho people of the city are unfortunately left in the dark upon these matters. Few of those who see,day by day, the ruinous and sorrowful condition 01 our own streets and lots in the burnt districts, are aware of the heavy job that has been going on this very summer, by the east end of Vaughan’s bridge. For that job, performed iu this terrible year, tbo city has paid twenty-five thousand dollars!—or to be particular, has paid the larger part of that sum, out of borrowed money, aud is going to pay tho balance when the taxes come in I And “Ward Six" wishes the city to spend a good many thousand more, on a similar jon, at the other end of the town, while the city Is uuabl to borrow money on its bonds at 93! At what rate will the city hire money next year as things are goiug on? And what will be the rate of taxation? For another particular—I repeat a proposi tion, substantially such as I have advanced be fore, aud which I will make good if a decent opportunity is furnished for a discussion of this whole matter before a responsible body— that the entire body ol flats on the “northeast front” can he made conveniently aud usefully accessible to aud from the present business lo calities of the city, without the slightest inter ference with the Promenade, and without a tenth part of the cost of the Congress street job. But who shall bear the cost of filling these flats to make them into wharves and ship-yards, is another question. H. Taxation ofOovernmeac Brads. To the Editor of the Press: In your editorial colums of tbs 2nd ult., ap peared the following sentence, without modifi cation. or explanation. “If any man is afflicted with such chronic stupidity as to believe that government bonds can be taxed, nothing but the restorative in fluence of time can cure him." The object of ths above was to convey tbs idea that there exists no lawful right to impose any lax npon bonds, and also to cast ridicule and contempt upon all who believe otherwise. Therefore it was characterized as an “infa mous declaration" in the communication in the MachiaB Union of the 17th, in reference to which you say, in your issue of the23d. “It is a distressing fact that there are two E. K. Smart’s in this unfortunate state. No. 2. lives in Pembroke and,last week, addressed a communication to the Mactflas Union, call ing attention to the ‘iutamous declaration’ of the Portland Press, that government bonds are not subject to state or municipal taxation, that declaration is the opinion of the Supreme Courts of the United States, and the Press, though perfectly willing to share Judge Mar shall's ‘infamy,’ has no disposition to steal his hundor.” t Attention was not called to this declaration. It was not then published by you and was nev er before observed in gour paper. Do you now admit that congress has a law ful right to tax government bonds? E. K. Smart, of Pembroke. If Mr. Smart’s rather peculiar phraseology is to be eonstruec to mean that the repeated decisions of the Supreme Court on this point had never been noticed in the Press before the 23d of September, he is wroDg. Of course he believes what ho says, but what an exhibition a man makes of himself when be ventures on a sweeping assertion of this kind, respecting a matter of which he knows nothing. The truth is that Judge Marshall’s own words were cited in an article in the Daily Press of July 30,th together with thecomments of Kent and Story, and the same article was reproduced in the weekly edition issued Aug. 1. It has been established by repeated decisions that govern ment bonds are not subject to State or munic ipal taxation under the “constitution as it is.” The burden of Democratic complaint has been that the bondholders were escaping their share ol local taxation, We have shown that this condition of things is not the result of any reoeut legislation, but of the legitimate inter pretation of the constitution. Mr. Smart now wants to Know it congress has a lawful right to tax these bonds. We sin cerely hope so; for unquestionably Congress haa taxed them. The income tax is assess*! equally upon the whole community, the bond holders hearing their share of it like everybody else. Whether a mall’s income is derived from cupons or cooking stoves, five per cent, of all beyond what is required for the support of bis family i» set apart to pay the national debt. And every man who is a mau makes his pay ments on that score as cheerfully as he pays Ids own debts. If Mr. Smart wants to go fur ther and tax United States stocks more than otliei secuiitics, he should show some reason for it. Meanwhile we beg io ask him a ques tion which we proposed to the Argus some months ago, and to which we have received no answer, You complain of the inequality of the distribution of the burden of local taxa tion. Now if Congress should collect a tax of fifty per cent, on the par value of all the bonds afloat next year, would that lighten the bur den of State and municipal taxation?

Hortiocltvhal KxHinmoN. — The exhibi tion of the Portland Horticultural Society, yesterday afternoon and evening, was in some respeots the best which they have yet made. The display of fruits was remarkably fine, and was a gratifying proof of the increased atteu (jon which this branch of horticulture is re ceiving from onr people. The best show was in pears, appleB and grapes; we noticed lew, if any, plums. Of pears the chief exhibi tors were Messrs. J. G. Warren, C. H. Greene, J. B. Brown, Samuel Bolfe, N. A. Foster, and T. C. Hersey. Samuel Eolfe exhibited twenty two varieties, including some fine specimens of the Duchess d’Angoulemo. T. C. Hersey had an equal number of varieties, some of which were very choice. Messrs. J. B. Brown aud N. A. Foster had each fourteen varieties, including some not before produced in this section. A fine plate of the Louise B, de Jerseys, samples from the nursery of J. C. Chase, Cambridge port, Mass., attracted much attention. Some Bartlets, from the gardens of Miss Jones and Mr. Eolfe, showed the per fection to which this favorite fruit has been brought. Mrs. H.|J. Little also displayed some vers fine pears of choice varieties. Of apples, the finest show was by J. B. Coyle, who exhibited twelve varieties, some of which were magnificent. We observed, also, some fine-looking watermelons, from Captain Coyle’s. A new variety of cantelopc, from H. P. Storer, looked remarkably tempting. lhe display; of grapes was very gratifying A Golden Hamburgh from Miss Jolies, a Vic toria and aBlack Hamburgh from J. B. Brown, and some choice specimens from the gardens of Sir. 0. S. Fobes and Dr. Robiuson, were especially noticeable. Dr. Robinson also ex hibited several varieties oi out-door grapes, the Delaware the Hartford Prolific, and the Concord, which grown in the open air hod at tained a good size and flavor. As the past sea son has been one of the most unfavorable for the perfecting of grapes, it would seem that in an ordinarily kind year these varieties might be raised in the open air witli entire suoefcss. A plate of lucious looking nectarines' were trom J. B. Brown; and a basket of peaches raised by Mr. Lewis B. Smith in ills gardeivon Carleton street, attracted mnch attention.— They were large, and of the richest color downy and blooming, as the cheek of a girl’ The tree from which these peaches were gath ered was sprung from a stone planted in 1800, The plauts and flowers exhibited were iqpstly from the gardens of Messrs. J. B. Brown, T. C. Hersey, J. B. Coyle, and Dirwanger. It is impossible to particularize all which deserve mention. The magnificent Cockscombs from Coyle’s were greatly admired. Of cut flowers the Messrs. Dirwanger made a splendid show in dahlias and pansies. We also saw some splendid dahlias from Brown's. comparatively few vegetables were exhibit ed. Some mammoth cabbages, and some un usually large tomatoes were from H.P. Storer. Mr. Warren showed some very handsome specimens of celery and caulillower, and Mr. Brown some noble squashes. The display, on the whole, was extremely creditable to those who have been engaged in getting it up, and was gratifying as showing that the interest in such things is yearly in creasing among us.
