RBUIT LISTS FOR THE NORTH. The Fruit-Growers' Association of Ab bottsford, Canada, has published a pamphlet of twenty pages, occupied with a " Fruit List for the Province of Quebec," of sorts that have proved adapted to that latitude. The thoroughness with which the task has been performed, and the vast amount of labor in volved may be inferred from the fact that two hundred and ninety circulars were ad dressed to fruit-growers in different parts of the Province, and that replies were. received from over a hundred persons, besides other correspondence on the subject. T he society has shown a great deal of energy as well as igtelligence in this list, and the ap pended remarks. Among the various sorts on which experi ments were made, one case is reported of an orchard planted five years on drained black muck five feet deep, the trees in good health and the fruit large, but not equal in flavor to that on more suitable soils. On clay flats the orchards mostly proved failures, even when they were underdrained. The region embraced in the experiment reported mostly lies between forty-five and forty-five and one-half degrees north latitude. The full statements of the results with sort are given, which we condense. APPLES.-Of the summer varieties, Duch ess of Oldenburgh stands first, then Red As trachan; Early Harvest, short-lived and un satisfactory ; Tetofsky promises well, hand some, productive, hardy, moderate in quali ty. The two best autumn sorts are St. Law rence and Alexander, both healthy and har dy trees; Keswick.Codlin does well in shel tered places; Hawthornden, hardy, and an early and heavy bearer, often dying of ex haustion; Kentish Fillbasket, very large. good for cooking. For early winter, the Fameuse is without a rival; Autumn Strawberry, fine; Hubbardstown Nonsuch, promising on a limited trial. For late win fer the following are given: Golden Russet (of Western New York), White Winter Cal ville, Canada Baldwin, new and along keep er; Blue Pearmain, poor bearer t Ben Dayv fs, productive and hardy, wanting in flavor, ships and sells well, keeps till May ; North ern Spy, hardy in some places, tender in others, tardy bearer, short-lived; Pomme Grise, poor bearer, for home use only; Tall man Sweet, mostly hardy, productive, not salable; Ribston Pippin, reports mostly un favorable as to health of tree; Yellow Bell flower, hardy and often satisfactory; Bald win Rhode Island Greening and Spitzen burgh have succeeded only in a few shel tered and otherwise favored spots, and should be rejected. For the best five for profit, Fameuse re ceives a nearly unanimous vote from all quarters as the best; Red Astrachan, St. Lawrence, Duchess of Oldenburgh, and Golden Russet of New York, appear to be among the most valuable. The following are named as the hardiest: TetofBky, Duchess of Oldenburgh, White Astrachan and Peach; next are Alexander, Ben Davis, Fameuse, Red Astrachan and St. Lawrence. FARes-The hest five sorts are Flemnish Beauty, Belle Lucrative, Glout Morceau, Lawrence and White Doyenne. The fol lowing` are added as deserving of special mention: Bartlett, Onondaga, St. Ghislain, Louise Boune of Jersey, Napoleon, Howell, 01band's Suutimer, Beurre Diel, Kingsessing, Clapp's Favorite. G.arns.--The essentials for success are thorough underdraining, protection by ences or hedges and winter coverihg. The following are the best four : Hartford Pro Alfle, more fruit with less care than any other; Adirondack, excellent in quality, al ways ripens, sometimes winter-killed under the same cover that saved other sorts; Creveling, hardy, vigorous, productive, fine, bunches loose and unsalable; Delaware, a general favorite, hardy, productive, excel lent-needs warm positions-as late As will ripen. Concord does not always ripen; El.mea~, its only fault from two year's limited trlid is its small size; Rebecca, fine dg special care; Salemn, ripens just be oAe Cooord; Isabella, will ripen only on walls. Among the small fruits, the currants all succeed well, the Cherry currant bringing the highest price in market. The English gooseberries mostly mildew, but near Mont real there are bushes of the Whitesmith, thirty years planted, which have never mil dewed, and are still yielding good crops. This sort, Green Ocean, and Crown Bob, all do well, both on clayey and gravelly soils. These fruits are profitable for market. Houghton's flourishes everywhere, bearing enormous crops without mildew, but the smallness of the berry is an objection. One cultivator, however, at Ottawa, .planting four feet apart each way, or 2,500 to the acre, sold his crop at fifteen cents per quart, and realized at the rate of $1.000 per acre. This is at the rate of 206 bushels per acre. It is not so salable at Montreal. Downing's seedling is less productive and has been giv en up. Raspberries do well in that region, the Red Antwerp being the general stand-by. Clarke succeeds well; Brinckle's Orange is quite hardy; Blackcaps enormously pro ductive. Blackberries are almost invariably cut to the ground. T. E. COLLINS, A.TTOIINEIY AT LAW. Special attention given to Collections in all parts of the Territory. Conveyancing promptly a nded to.
