grafting, and the came may be said of

trees of various kinds are propagated
by grafting, especially where it is de

culiarity, such as a pendant or weeping
habit, or foliage of an unusual shape
or color. Some weeping trees which are
naturally low, a3 the weeping beech,
aeh, and poplar, form elegant specimens
when grafted upon a stock eight or ten
feet high. Amorg ornamental trees and
shrubs grafting is reEorted to as the
most rapid means of propegation; some
times a variety cannot be multiplied
ff-adily-frorH cuttings, but can be grafted
upon tonic related stock that will grow
rapidly. The choicer species of clema

the custom in Great Britain, arc at work

go through the field iudecd, but not
through the rye itself, so as to meet and

The ancieut English homestead of t he
.Washington iamilr is handsome -rr
old:fashioned, and Duilt of stone, with
immense solidity and strength. The
timber about it is chiefly oak, and in
several of the room3, narticularlv the
old hall or banqueting room, there are
rich remains of gilding, carved work in
cornices, ceilings and panels, polished
floors and wainscoting, also shields con
taining the eame coat of arms as on the
mural monument in the church, carved
over the lofty and antique mantel piece.
Beucalh the house are extensive cellars,
which, with the banqueting room, seem
to Indicate the genuine hospitality and
princely style of living peculiar to a
"fine old English gentleman all of the
olden time.' And, indeed, according to
the traditions and chronicles of that
region of country, such was the ceneral
character of the heads of the Washing
ton lamily. The walls of the house
are five feet thick, and the entire resi
clence is surrounded by beautiful gar
dens and orchards. In the old parish
archives the Washington family are,i
frequest instances most warinlj referred
to as among the benefactors of the
parish; and from the very earliest re

derived its name from Admiral Vernon,
ia connection with whose command
Lawrence Washington, George's half
brother, had m-ed in the English op
t rations at Caitl rgtrr, wkeic Verto
was in naval command. Lawrence had
nceiTw this plantation as his share of
the pitcraal landed estate, and dvi&g at
an early age, willed it to his obIt
daughter daring her lifetime, and, in
case of her decease without issue. It was
to go into possession of her uncle
George. She died when quite young,
and the great estate came into the hands
of the latter. The high opiniou enter
tained by him of tho location aad value
of the plantation may be judged from
his own words, as contained in a letter
written by him to Arthui Young, the
celebrated English agriculturist, in 1793,
in which he sajs that no estate in the
United States ii more pleasantly sit
uated; it lies in a high, drv and hcalthv
country, three hundred miles, by water,
from the sea, aad on one of the finest
rivers in the world ; its margin is washed
by more than t.-n miles of tide water; it
is situattd in a latitude between the ex
tremes of heat and told, and in the
same distance by land and water, with
gwd riads and the lV3t uavfcaliui.
from the fedcrul city, Alcximlrin and
Georgetown -distant from the first
twelve, from the second nine, and the
last Blxtccn miles; the river which en
compasses the land the distance above
mentioned is well supplied with different
kinds ot fish tfalt seasons of the year,
and, in the spring, with the greatest pro
fusion of jhsd, herring, carp, bass,
tench, sturgeon, etc.
Soon after his marriage, which took
place in 1759, Washington settled per
manently at Mount Vernon, and for
forty years it was his loved and cher
ished home. He was one of the most
extensive landholders in North America;
for, besides other great and valuable
tracts which came to him frcm his
father and with his wife, this Mount
Vernon estate the most valuable west
of the Potomac covered more than
nine thousand acres. On this be raised
in one year seven thousand bushels of
the finest wheat, and a much larccr
quantity of Indian corn, with, of course,
It appears that the original mansion
was built by Lawrence Washington, and
possessed, st his death, but few architec
tural attractions. Under the manage
ment of its new cccupant, however, a
greatly improved, appearance was given
not only to the hqusc, but to its sur
roundings; and lor posr.e years subse
quent to Washington's death, the nlace
presented the identical appearance winch
it wore when the great man passed away.
A winding cvenue leads from the public
road to toe mansion, and on entering the
gateway, the visitor alighted in the
midst of what appeared like a small
village, on account of the numcrou aad
scattered buildings devoted to the menial
purposes cf the place; further on, these
houses wore a neater appearance, and on
coming ia view of the mansion of which
these formed the appendages, the simple
stateliness of the stntcture, and thequieA
and secluded loveliness of the situation,
were at oace mde obvious. The roof is
ctewaed with a cupola or small tower, a
cosamea thing upon the old seats or rich

is two stcries in height. The portion
