It will be recollected that last year we stated the success obtained by Messrs. Thomas Archer & Co., of the Lake Shore nulseries at St. Joseph, Mich., in the cultivation of the fig. We have just received from Mr. Archer two boxes of the ripe froot. and as showing the proliiic nature of the tree, a branch four and three-quarters inches in length was sent containing seven ripe fruits. Mr. Archer estimates the erop from the tree from which our ligs came at two bushels. It has already yielded a peck of ripe and luscious figs. It is not of ten that ripe flgs picked from the tree in the open ground can be enjoyed in this climate, and but adds another to the list of choice fruits that may be cultivated in the wonderful regiĆ³n of the western Lake Shore. The fruits came in most excellent order, and were duly appreciated by oflicers of the Prairie Farmer, company and friends, who enjoyed the pleasure of tasting ripe iigs tresh trom the trees.
