CARNARVONSHIRE AND ANGLESEY HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. The Annual Show of this useful Society took place on Thursday last, in the Penrllyn Hat), Bangor. Horticultural shows, like agricultural meetings, are of recent growth, and were almost unknown a quarter of a century ago. The object of the agricultural meetings M intended for the benefit of the farmer and the tillers of the ground generally whilst the objt-et of Hortienl- ture M mainly to encourage and incite to good gardemng amongst the labouring population. A man who love;) nowers and cultivates his garden in a manner to gain a prize, is sure to be a steady man, and a good and useful. member of society wlubt, as a rule, the very contrary maybe predicated of the man who has no taste that way. Dr. Watts took this for granted, when ho described the lazy and dissipated man in his lines on the Sluggard :— I passed bv his garden and saw the wild briar, Thethotu and the thistle grow broarder and higher. We we glad to 6od thpt this matter ))M been taken up very warmly by the gentry in all parts ofthe country; M that there is scarcely a towu of any size or unpor tmce in th(- kingdom, but what has its yearly Show of lowers fruits, and vegetables. In this district, the pnu <;ipal supporter of the Society are Cot Pennant and_ Sir Richard Butkelcy, who are also warm patrons of all acricultural iuiprovements. This does the.u great ho- tiour, and is most c'-edititbie to the high position they occupy, in the two neighbouring counties. The Show this year was held in the Penrhyn Hall, which in our opinion is a much too circumscribed area for the purpose, and it was pretty generally admitted to be so. Notwithstanding that there was a grea. fail- ing off in the Sowers exhibited by the geuh'y of the neighbourhood, and which necessarily take up a good deal of root.), the Hall was quite full in ev.'ry part, so that hat! more been sent, there would have been no <tpace for them. No doubt a more fitting place will be found for next year's exhibition. With tha exce['tion of the plants and (towers, the collections, in both divisions, fruit and vegetable, was of a very superior character, and on the congers' side, showed a very decided and marked improvement. Amongst the fruit, thf grapes, melons, and wall fruit, could scarcely beaurpaaaed; and amongst the vegeta. Met), the excdleut quahty and fixa of the potatoes tvere tite themù and the admiration of everyone who yiaited the Hall. In fact. niching has beeu aeen like it in Banger, since the Might nrst made ita appearance in m6. We may add, thtt in point ot generat exceUcnce the cottager.' productioua were not a wit inferior to those of the innateuM and the market gardenerd. and particularly thoao brought from the mode! vittage of .HMtdegai, which haa long been famous for its fruit and vefetabtee. On the centre tabte, there was a splenii,1, though a comparative small c<d)ecti.)n of rare hot-house and other towers, chiefly exhibited by Co). Pennant, Lady WU- toughby do UrukM, and \tis9 Xoberts, George Hotel. Mr. Robert Daviea Bodtondeb, had a ap)endid selection of British ferm, about 101) varieties, aud which took the &rst prize. Co). Pennant had also a smaU collection of eMtio ferua, sone of which were very beautiful speet- :nena. Amongst the more rare of the hothouae noweri) ex- hibited, were the foUowing:—A tine Bpeei'neuof the UrMCBBe Ft-na Gmudis," from Penrhyn Castle a "CiMua Dacota," from the George Hote); specimens of the Aloc36sizt M0talica and Cotens Ver.'<ha\vn'e)ti; also a nugniSueut AHtophita Austratis, and Latauia Borbon- ic*. from Penrhyu C",tle, There was also a m-ignifi- ceatahow of ¡"uchia" in fuU bbom. The show of Ihhli, was unusl\lLlly good; but those exhibited by Mr. Witson Dandegai, diatanced all com- petttors, and he carried off the two nrat prizes. He )md likeWMe the first prize for a set of Verbenas. Messrs Dicksnn and Sons, Newton Nurseries, MM Chester, exhibited a number of (towers, which are now becoming quite fashionable, namely, the Hybrids of "Obdiolus, Oaudaveuait," which were generally ad- mired. They were a most briUiant, autumna), hardy lower, and threaten in time to displace the long esta- Miahed favourites, the Dahlias and the Hollyhocks. We have stated, the grapes were superb and there were two bunches (not for competition) sent by the Hon. W. 0. Stanky, !P., of enormous size, which attracted much attention. There were some fine bunches from Penrhyn Castle, but as the colour was not Brst- rote, they did not obtain the first prize. Of course the uamea of the successful competitors will be given ba- low. The cases of mixed vegetables were unusually good, thoee from Penrhyn Cattle and the George Hotel being perfect in their way. as was also a case betonging to Mr. Roberta, of Llaadegai. The competition in this department was very close, and indeed we should think the Judges had great dimculty in deciding to which the superior exceltence belonged. Upon the platform, in front, were several floral de- TMee of considerable merit and uniqueness. There was a fMoy rural cottage, composed of dahlias and other towers by Mr. Robert Davies, of Handegai; whilst Mr. Roberts, Clerk of the Works, exhibited a really beauti- hd bird cage, contpoited chie&y of &owers, which was the production of his gardener, Mr. John Thomas. Between thewe two works of ftoral art, there was another even More fanciful still, namely, a Welsh goat, made of daMiM, Ac., a kind of grass forming the tail and beard, two cactus leaves representing the horns, aud two laurel tetves the ears. This was the work of Mr. Millingtoa, tf Port Dinorwie, and was the source of much admiring merriment during the day. The Hall was opened for visitors at one o'clock in the tftemoon, and closed at 6ve o'clock.
