ORIGINAL COMMUNICATIONS.

ART. I. Some Account of a Green-house erected the past Summer

in the Garden of Mr. S. Sweetser, Cambridgeport ; accompanied with Engravings illustrating the same, and the method of Heating by Hot Water. By the CONDUCTORS.

AGREEABLY to our intentions, it is with much pleasure that we now present to our readers an account, accompanied with a description and engravings, of a neat, beautiful, and very convenient green-house erected by Mr. Sweetser in his garden the past summer, and which has been finished but a few weeks, and the plants just moved into their places for the season. To his kindness in communicating to us, thus early, the information which is contained in this article, we are greatly indebted ; and we have no doubt onr readers will be equally so with ourselves. We are confident that this house will be found one of the most complete of the kind that has ever been erected in our vicinity. It is just the size that any person would wish who has but a few hours to devote to the cultivation of flowers and plants; and the coet of the erection is so trifling, compared with what is generally estimated by those who are unacquainted with gardening, and have but little information on the subject, that we are certain it will serve as a model to build by for every lover of horticulture who is desirous of having attached to his garden or dwelling, that most truly desirable of modern additions, through our long and dreary winters,– a green-house.

În the construction of green-houses, hot-houses, graperies, &c., there is yet much information wanted ; from this want, VOL. II.-NO. I.
