Our thanks are again due to our many and kind correspondents for valuable and seasonable articles, some of which we should have been glad to have found room for in this number, but could not well do so without deferring the very interesting Review of Mr. Emerson's Report on the Trees and Shrubs of Massachusetts, to which we would call particular attention. We have on hand a capital article on training peach trees in cold houses, and have been awaiting the opportunity to present our own Diary of the Cultivation of the Grape in the GREENHOUSE, which will extend to several pages. We hope to make room for both in our next.

Our thanks are due to Gov. Briggs for a copy of Mr. Emerson's Report, and to J. G. Palfrey, Esq., for Reports of Agricultural Societies of the State.

IT We would call attention to our prospectus of the Fruits of America, the first number of which will appear simultaneously with this Magazine.

SAXTON & Miles are no longer our agents in New York,

James Hogg, Seedsman, Broadway, will act as our Agent in New York.
