tho a tho of a Lander post.—Exchange, Tho Tulip. Tho tulip was first made known to botanists botanists by descriptions and figures made by tho Swiss naturalist, Conrad Gessner, in tho year 1550. The plant from which Gessner made his drawings was growing in the gar^ den of opo John Henry Harwnrt, at Augs~ burg, tho seed or bulb having originally been brought from tho Levant. The date of its introduction into England is somewhat somewhat uncertain, but horticulturists usually usually set it down as 15SO, probably on account account of a passage in tha works of Jlnk- luyt (V583), which says, "Now within those' four years there has been brought into England England from Vienna, Austria, divers kinds of flowers called Tulipas." Linnwus tolls us that the tulip is a native of Cappadocia; also that ho believed It to be the "lily of the (It? Id" spoken of by the Saviour,— St. J.onis Republic.
