A letter from Cincinnati to the New York '
Tribune gives the folloniug interesting facts ,
about the cultivation of this delirious fruit
" I>o the readers of the Tribune know to j
what decree the strawberry is grown in the en
virons of Cincinnati ? The season has not yet
bfgun. but I understand that in theoourse of a
w?ek or two hundreds and hundreds of l>ush"U ,
will be brought in in a day. Last season one
man would have three hundred bushels in the
aiarket at a time. Mr. Longworth is the father
?>f the strawberry cultnre as well as of the vine
culture He has given to the world the fruits
of a remarkable discovery in the shape of three
new ?^edlings?the Superior, the Prolific, and
the Extra Red?earh of which has an excel
lence of its own. This discovery was the prop
erty of an ignorant market woman, who first in
Philadelphia. ^nd neat iu Cincinnati, beat all
her neighbors in the abnndanco as well as the
fineness of her crop Every spring she would
caretully go over her b-^ds. pull up numbers of
t.ie largest-blossoming plants and throw them
over the fence. The rival gardeners, emulous
of her sue ees. carefully picked up these rejected
plants and ?<ot them out in their gardens. But
not yet had they caught the goose that laid the
g_>idei eg*s. Her castaways di I no better than
the old ones, if ae well, and still she raisod five
Umes aa many berries as auv one elae On
eomifig U) Cincinnati, she still distanced all
eompetitors?why. no one could discover. At
length her son carelessly dropped a hint in the
hearing of Mr. Lougworth. who caught it up
* ?d experimented, until he found out the eu
rious fact that the strawberry is sometimes
"l^i^uielimes temale, and ?oatetitnes heruia
jwixodite having both organ* nu>re or lew coj?
{lete?* fact the injudicious use whereof has
rought tho price of strawberries from forty to
fifty cents down to four to five cents per quart,
and made thein a staple of the state. It was
the male strawberries, whose blossoms are al
ways the largest, that the market-woman threw
over the fence, keeping just gentlemen enough
in her beds for the lames. Too many not only
take up too much room, but as their er.ergies I
are not exhausted in hearing fruit, grow and j
spread so fast as seriously to encroach upon
their harems, so that if not looked to in time,
they are likely, as Mr. Longworth rays. '? to
kick all the women out of bed." Henoe it is
that many people find, to their great surprise,
that they have fewer and fewer strawberries,
though the blossoms are larger and larger every
spring. On the other hand, the female can do
nothing without intercourse with the other sex. >
of course. Harvey's Seedling, so long the fa- ,
vorite strawberry of the East, is a pure female, ;
and bears only when it has companions in the
bed. as it is almost sure to have fewer or none.
The English strawberries are said to be always
hermaphrodite?which renders it very difficult
for .lohn Hull to believe that there are pure
males and females. Not the leas! curious thing
about this matter is the way in which the male
impregnates the female. He does it by proxy,
honeybees and other insects playing the go-be
tween. They carry the dust on their feet aa
they fly from flower to flower. This fact has
been established, I believe, beyond cavil, by a
series of experiments, such as covering some of
the female plants with gauze, when they are
sure to be barren, but begin to do their duty
the moment the gauze is removed. There is,
therefore, no need to put the male plants in the
same bed with the female, and in practice oa-h
is now usually placed by itself, from a foot to a
yard apart from its conjugal companions. Of
the three varieties just incntiencd as Mr. Long
worth's seedlings, now in general cultivation
here, the Superior and Extra Red are female,
and the Prolific is hermaphrodite."
Epsom race course on a Derby day. hs our
readers are aware, is a phenomenon quite in
describable. It is a medley?a world on a
small scale?such as the Derby alone exhibits,
for only London could furnish it. No other
festival in the world approaches near to it. It
is. in fact, a houseless Loudon?London with all ;
its pomp, wealth and ?qualor, wants, vices,
luxuries, gentlemen, knaves and fools?at oncc
transported, as if by magic, into the open fields.
Like all great sights, it leaves a strong, though
indistinct impression on the mind, whimsical
and Lizarrr. like the aspect of the course itself,
where much is seen and little recollected. Who
that saw a Derby once can ever forget it: yet
who that has seen it fifty times can tell more
than that it is an immense assemblage. aa un
definaMe as the ocean ?
Yesterday it differed little from it* usual cos
mopolitan asj>ect. There were tents and boots
of all kinds, from tho palatial canvas of Alger
down to the miserable tarpaulin shanties on
twigs from out of which the sallow daughters of
Egypt dispensed unheard of wealth in sixpenny
fortunes. There were organ grinders, mounte
banks. dancers, fiddlers and beggars, perform
ing monkeys and precocious children. Tender
intants that could scarcely stand upon their
feet were made to stand uj?on their heads in
wooden platters, and urchins, scarce weaned,
crept up long ladders carefully adjusted on the
paternal nose, which bore evident tokens of
baving suffered somewhat in the usual duties it
was called upon to fulfill Sallow vagabonds in
much-used " fleshings" comforted themselves 1
after a manner that quite upset all theories as
to the use of a back-bone. Punches, girls on
stilts, ballad-singers, negro melodists grinning
from ear to ear. card-sharpers, and never-to-be
sufficiently anathematised 4* kerrekt cards"
abounded as usual.
Pickpockets, of course, mustered strong, and \
must have reaped a bounteous harvest, for un
til it was time to clear the course but few po
licemen were to be sern. In this part of tho ar
rangements an alteration is decidedly needed.
The Grand stand was very full, aud visitors
continued to arrive up to the very moment of
the horses' starting. As usual, there were some
twenty or thirty belated parties that missed the
whole affair, coming only in time to share the
dust and general panic aud disappointment that
ensued on the wiuner's number going up at the
post. The first race generally commands about
as much attention as the first piece of a boxing
night. Yesterday there was not even a mis
giving as to the state of the turf to give it in
terest, and all the varied noises of a racecourse
continued with almost unabated vigor. Not so,
however, as the time for the event approached.
The uproar gradually stilled down into a busy
hum. and silence deepened as excitement and
expectation increased.
Just before the first false start, a fixed, solemn
attention reigned over the whole multitude, that,
compared with the former restless uproar, seem
ei bodeful and impressive. The excitement
arose to an intense pitch : odds were given and
taken for or against almost anything Only in
subdued exclamations or long druwn breaths
was the disappointment of the false starts ac
knowledged. Suddenly there was a hoarse mur
mur. gradually swelling into an uproar?a con
fused. dull trampling, and a rush like a
whirlwind as the horses swept by?the colors
mixed, changed and vanishing in the distance ;
and ere you could collect a thought or hazard a
guess, the Derby was run and won. The result I
ot the race was scarcely unexpected; for Black
Fo.iny, the winner, had throughout the winter
been the lending favorite, and nad only lost her
position in the betting by her defeat at New
Market for the one thousand guineas stakes?a
defeat which is now inexplicable, and which I
perhaps, can only be attributed to the glorious
uncertainty ot the turf.
After her performance at New Market, she
went quite out of the betting, but a few days
ago she was brought again into favor, and at
starting was in request at twenty to one. Still
many uelieved that Strathnaver, her stable
companion and winner of the Dee Stakes at
Chester, would be more trusted animal of the
two. The ring is somewhat severely hit by the '
success of Black Bouuy. for many people who
hid backed her prior to her New Market run- ,
ning. hud no opportunity of hedging, and were ;
compelled to stand their money out, while \
others, believing she had no chance, betted i
heavily against her without saving any part of
their investments. Had Black Tommy won.
the fielder- would have had a rare turn ; for

win ?27.(NXi on him. was not backed for six- |

The following extract from a New York paper
cannot fail to Ik- interesting. In referring tojgpl&g
the receipts of Teas in this country for one[Tr.!K;
year up to 30th ultimo, it says they will l?e 12,-;
non,i*?i pounds short of the imports of tiie year end
ing J tine ;*>, UCifi, and that
" The advance in black teas. Oolongs, since last
December, has boen fifteen cents per pound; and
Young Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades,
liave experienced an advance of one hundred per
cent, over last season's closing prices.
"It will thus he seen that the strong and rapid
advance in the tea market has l*?en the result of n
short supply and aotive demand ; but when it is con
sidered that we may hear at any moment of the en
tire suspension ol shipments at Shanghai, and. in
fact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from F.ngland
arrives at the seat ol war, all five ports of entry in
Chiua. will prohebly he placed under strict blockade,
it would not be surprising to see Teas at a much
higher figure than they have yet attained."
