NEW AND CHOICE VARIETIES OF FRUITS.

HOVEY & Co. CAMBRIDGE NURSERIES, NEAR BOSTON, MASS. RESPECTFULLY invite the attention of amateur cultivators to their immense collection of Fruits, embracing every variety to be obtained in Europe, selections of which were made from the English, Scotch and Continenial nurseries, in the autumn of 1844, during a personal visit, and other new and rare kinds, since received from their established correspondents in London, Paris and Brussels. No pains or expense have been spared to render their collection unequalled in the Pomological department, both in extent and variety; and specimen trees of every kind are planted out, thus affording an opportunity to inspect the fruit as the trees are yearly coming into bearing.

20,000 Pear trees, on both the quince and pear, are now ready for sale; and, in addition to the established and well known sorts, the following very rare kinds are now offered,--several of them for the first time in the country.

PEARS. LANGELIER's BEURRE.—Raised or introduced to notice by M. Langelier, who first introduced Van Mons Leon le Clerc. He describes it “perfectly melting, ripe in January, larger than the Napoleon, trees very vigorous, and one of the best flavored in cultivation, otherwise it would not be recommended by him." The original trees cost one guinea each, and fine young trees are now offered at $2 each.

JERSEY GRATIOLI.- Described by Mr. Thompson to have a “melting flesh, like honey, exceedingly rich ;, in its decay, not becoming mealy or insipid, but still retains its honied nature : ripe in October.” Highly esteemed in Jersey, where it is considered the “ finest pear ever met with.” Fine trees, $2 each.

VICOMPTE DE SPOELBERCH.—Raised by Van Mons, and described by himself as one of his finest seedlings. $ 1 each.

NEW SEEDLING STRAWBERRY.

BOSTON PINE.

HOVEY & Co. HAVE the pleasure of again announcing to their friends, and lovers of this delicious fruit, that their new seedling, called the Boston PINE, is ready for sale, after the trial of another season. This variety is one of the most valuable kinds ever produced ; it is not quite as large as Hovey's Seedling, but possesses the very desirable quality of being nearly ten days earlier, remarkably beautiful, equally if not more productive, and of the highest and most delicious pine flavor. The flowers are all perfect, and will always bear an abundant crop, with or without any other sort. Several large baskets of the Pine were exhibited the past season, before the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and the Fruit Committee made the following report :

“The Messrs. Hovey presented four large baskets of strawberries, two of Hovey's Seedling, and two of Boston Pine. The berries wese very large, and the flavor delicious. Hovey's Seedling is well known to cultivators through the length and breadth of the land, and we shall be greatly mistaken if the Boston Pine is not found, in a few years, in every good collection. It is perfect in its organs, and, when grown within twenty feet of Hovey's Seedling, will ensure a certain and large crop to the latter variety. We recommend both the varieties as deserving of extensive cultivation."

Strong plants are now ready for delivery, at the low price of $1 per dozen, and will be packed to bear transportation to any part of the country. Orders executed in the rotation in which they are received. Orders from a distance, remitting the amount, will be duly attended to, the plants safely packed, and forwarded to any part of the country.

ALSO, THE FOLLOWING SELECT VARIETIES : Hovey's Seedling:-Well known, and acknowledged to be the finest of all strawberries. For its production, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society presented Messrs. H. & Co. with a beautiful SILVER PITCHER, of the VALUE OF FIFTY DOLLARS. Plants, $1 50 per hundred, and $10 per thousand.

Deptford Pine. -A new English variety, of high reputation, which promises to be a late and desirable sort. Plants, 50 cts. per dozen. Princess Alice Maud. - Another new English variety, large and hand

First exhibited the past year by H. & Co. Plants, 50 cts. per doz. Together with all the common kinds worth cultivation.
