Mc Lean', 3'1'4 Chcsnnt street,- St. ,Lo:iij. Mo.- itodale Nurseries, WM. WATSON, Sole Proj rletor. When the useful acd the beautiful are combined, a master-piece of industry and art has been accomplished. This truism finds a liappy illustra tion in ttta success: with -which . the well directed labor's of sev enteen years have been crown ed. Commencing iu 18G0, with only forty acres of land, the proprietor of Ro3Edalc lias pushed his business ahead, un til his orchards and nurseries include an area of a hundred and seventy acres. This year there are no fewer thanfive thousand select peach trees in bearing ripening from Ma- till November. There are fifty varieties of the freestone' alone, and nearly as many ot the cling, besides twenty five varie ties of new peaches. The most ot the varieties are full bearers. ThU will be apparent when it is remembered that as many as a barrel of peaches have been yWded by a single tree. Mr. Watson is tbe pioiucr of fruit growing in this county. He was the first to demonstrate the adaptability ot our soil and cli mate to the growing of the fin est fi nits. An ounce ot demon stration, from actual experiments, is worth more than a ton of the ory. At Eosedale, Mr. Watson has raised as fine early apple? as they do in Tcnucssee or Ken tuekv. From ayoung tree, on ly a faxr years old, be has "gath ered a birrel of apples. There is over fifty varieties ot apples, ripening from the middle of May till Decemhcr. Many thousands of these will be ready for transplanting in the tall. The pear trees, with their beautiful fruit, half bidden iu thick green foliage, present a most charming appearance. The varieties os this fruit are very extensive. In this climate they do well. A gentleman who has eaten pears in both hemis pheres, told us recently that he had eaten as- fine ones at Rose d tie as he ever had seen any where. This assertion will not appear extravagant, when it is re nembered that pears weigh ing neaily a ponud have been raised here. This, in all reason, is proof tint the country is adapted to the growth of the rich, luscious fruit for which it is so pre-eminently ditinguish nd in the fruit world. The va riety of this fruit grown here, i very extensive, and there are five thousand trees ready for transplanting in the fall. The variety of nectarines and apri cots grown by Mr. Watson, is very extensive. The success which has ben achieved at Rosedale in fruit it growing, is oniethmg wonder ful, and reflects the highest credit on the energy and entcrr prie of its proprietor. Enter ing on the business with a full determination to give it a lair trial, the intelligent gentleman who undertook it, waj oon con" vinced of the practicability of making fruit growing and the nursery business a success The results that have followed this Wi'll conducted enterprise, are well known to thousands ot the citizens of Texis who have eat en of the fruits. The health and vior of the trees which Miv Watson has grown here can be attested by thousands and thu sands of those residing in the Stat", scattered from Red river to the Rio- Grande, and who have bought and cultivated the 'iruit trees grown at this nursery. Tree- cultivated in this nur sery, have been transplanted as farso'ith and west as Browns ville and El Pao, where they thrivo and boir well. At Ro3edal'e, tJSrere will he more than ten thousand peach trees ready fof transplanting next fall, and something ap proximating tlm same number of apple tree. It may be asked "how will be ever dispose' of this immense numbtr of select f i'i it tree??" Easy enough. Mr. Watson' has- a- l-argo number ot agents travelling in his interest. Among theso agents are two of his own' manly sons, whoso high moral bearing must bs to him a source' of more pride and pleasure" thjn all the beautiful fruit ot Rosedale, or even the goldjir fruits of the garden of Ileiporido-.,- wero tboy growiiijj in his extensive orchards. In fact Mr. Watson has not per mitted fruit growing to absorb his attention so exclusively as to leave no time for the cultiva tion of an3' thing else. The three, who are nearly or quite grown of his five sons, show the judicious training they have received from the parental hand, and with what care and gentle" ness the exuberant offshoots of youth have been pruned, exhib iting as the result ot this labor of love, symmetrical bodies, un seated by rough usase, and hi i litis Untainted by immoral examples. In fact we believe it is the highest pride of Mr. Watson, that he will leave sons who will thoroughly understand the business he has labored so long to establish, arid who will conduct it witll that judicious system which has made his own admini-tration of it, such a grat ifying success. In an establishment of tlii3 character, where the ornamen tal has kept even pace- with the useful, it would be vain to un dertake to give even a fabit "outline of the beauty of the ground, which have been laid yfl with the most captivating taste, jrowinir the ornamental trees and flowers of every clinic, trbm the further Iud to the Pa cific slope, as well as those which are native and to the manor born. There is no end to the roses. An endless -wilderness ot these is the best description we can think of. The dwarf hedges, properly pruned, con tribute 110 small share of beau ty to the grounds. Evergreens in countlees numbers and va rieties, seem to extend to the visitor a hearty wchome. Ce dars and cypresses, indigenous to China and Japan, floui'ish side by side with the Oregon pine and show no symptons of mel ancholy for having left the land of their nativity. In an article of this character it is impossible in the space at Our command, to do a tithe.of justice to tho subject. Even if a olnme were writlea on this theme, - and the material at Rosedale are ample tor the pur pose, there would still be much lelt unsaid. The pleasure to be derived from viewing thifc grounds, and the lessons qf practical utility that can be learned while doing so, would be cheaply purchased by the fatistne of a day's ride. The thoughtful farmer will learn at what an insignicant price of money and labor, he -can sur round himself with the luxury of fruits as delicious as ever gratified tho palate of man, and tho neat housewife, whos eye, ever awake to the benutif ul and capable of taking it in at a glace, will perceive at what a trifling cost she can surround her own home, be it humble or pallatial, with beautiful orna ments, which will be a perpet ual source of joy. Parties residing in remote parts of the country, can have their orders filled as well as if they attended the sjlectinn in person. Y'hatevcr is ordered is pacltcd up with scrupulous care. Every tree or ornamental shrub that leaves the packer- is w rtiTanttd to come fully up to what it is represented. Accom panying each bill, is a cata loaue, containing full and com prehensive' directions for the cultivation of the tree or plant. The just reputation for supe rior excellence which" the fruits of Rosedale has acquired, is not confined to Texas. Ordera have been filled for Louisiana, and it we are not mistaken, for Mis sissippi also. Arkans.is has giv en sevcal orders, both for lruif trees, and for shrubbery. We have omitted to say anything about hot house flowers,- frailcrs and creepers, because we f'clfl oar utter incompetency to do justice to the beautiful and del icate subjects, native and exotic. Tun side walk on Main Street, a large portioa of which was built by Mr. Grabcr at his own expen'3?, is now needing repairs, and we think the city authori ties should have it done at once. There was no obligation in the first pl'acfj on the part of Mr. Graber to'huild jhi's side' valk, and wo think- it is the duty of the corporation' to'repair it,- antl kp.Mi it in rrihllp.nnr1itinti.
