Roses and Seedling Chrysanthemums.-Our late blooming roses are also exceedingly fine, better than I ever saw before ; and although ihe forests have turned brown and are fast shedding their leaves, the garden is very gay with chrysanthemums, marigolds, zinnias, thunbergias, &c. By the way, we beat you all hollow in chrysanthemums. Mr. Waddel has some very superior seedlings. I intend to prepare some notice of our gardening operations " in these diggins” for your annual review, if I can get time, and my lame shoulder will allow me to write.Respectfully, yours, M. A. Ward, Athens, Ga., Nov. 1847.

Rhode Island Horticultural Society. The second annual exhibition of this society was held at Hoppin's Hall, No. 33 Westminster street, on the 29th and 30th of September last. The reports of the several committees upon fruits, flowers and vegetables, showing a schedule and description of the articles exhibited, and the premiums awarded, have been sent to us, and we have endeavored to find room for their insertion. We have, however, condensed them somewhat, leaving out the names of the fruits exhibited by persons from other places, as they will be found in the list of sorts exhibited at the last annual show of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

The committee, in the report sent to us, state that “the season, which has been backward throughout, prevented the exhibition of many fruits which are generally mature at this time. Nevertheless, the show was exceedingly fine; the favorable spirit evinced towards the society was never more flattering ; the increased zeal of the public was truly gratifying to its friends, and the ardent competition for the luscious prizes at the sales was never equalled at previous meetings. So may it ever be until we can boast with confidence that Cleveland is the garden of the West.”
