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 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 were 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 50 cents per dozen, or $3 per hundred, 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.-A new English variety, large and handsome. First exhibited the past year by H. & Co. Plants, 50 cts. per doz.

Together with all the common kinds worth cultivation.
