rpnE history of the grape is almost as old aa that of man
1 —growing in its highest perfection in Syria and Per
sia, its lucious fruit and the unrivalled beverage which its
fermented juice affords, recommended it to the especial
care of the Patriarchal tillers of the soil ; and vineyards
were extensively planted, long before orchards or col
lections of other fruit trees were at all common.
The grapes of the old world are all varieties of the wine
grape, which, thongh so long and universally cultivated
and naturalized in all the Middle and Southern portions
of Europe, is not a native of that Continent, but came
originally from Persia. From the latter country, as the
civilization advanced westward, this plant accompanied
it—first to Egypt, then to Greece and Sicily, ard gradu
ally to Italy, Spain, France, and Britain ; to which lat
ter country the Romans carried it about two hundred
years after Christ. To America the seeds and plants of
the European varieties were brought by numerous Emi
grants and Colonists, within the first fifty years after its
The wild grapes of our own country, are quite distinct
species from the wine grape of Europe, and are usually
stronger in their growth, with longer and more entire
foilage, and iu their native state with a peculiar foxy
odour or flavor, and more or less hardness of pulp ; these
traits, however, disappear in process of cultivation ; and
we have already obtained from the wild type, new varie
ties of high quality, and of superior hardiness and pro
ductiveness in this, our Northern climate.
The universal experience in all countries, has estab
lished the fact that dry, warm soil is the very best for
the vine. All in this latitude may raise the grape suc
cessfully bv setting the vine in a favorable exposure to
the sun". The late varieties that I offer for sale, are all
earlier thou the Isabella but oue, and that ripens full as
soon as the Isabella There is no fruit grown, in my
opinion, in this world, more beautiful, delicious, or use
ful than the grape. If a man is not too lazy, he may have
round him all tire varieties ol grapes in a high state of
cultivation, and his garden adorned with all the beautiful
and social productions of this fair world of ours, and a
mind that has any stir in it at ail. by little enquiry and
practice, may learu to cultivate anything that grown.
I consider "the followiug variety of grapes the very beat
to cultivate for outdoor culture in our uoithorn climate,
out of the vast variety.
This excellent hardy grape, is the true Burgundy grape
so highly valued tor wiiie iu France. The fruit is very
sweet and excellent, and the hardiness of the vine ren
ders it one of the best varieties in the open air in this
climete. Bunch small, compact,(i.e. berries closely set.)
Berries midle-sized, roundish-oval, black, juice "sweet,
good, ripens about 20tli of Sept. Thompson gives more
than forty synonymes to 1 his grape.
PRICE SEVENTY FIVE CENTS.
This excellent, native grape, was first introduced to
notice by Maj. ADLCM. of Georgetown, D. C., and was
found by'him in Maryland. It probably has its name
from the Catawba river, it is one of the most productive
and excellent of our native sorts. There is is no grape
in some portions of the United States, so good for wine
or table use. Beautiful bunches, pale red, rich musky
flavor, and very sweet when ripe.
PRICE, TWENTY-FIVE CENTS.
Origin uncertain, said to have originated in Western
New York, growth vigorous, hardy, and productive,
bunches compact, berries round, rather below medium
size, black, covered with a thick bloom, eatable eight or
ten davs before Isabella, frosts make them very good.
PRICE, TWENTY-FIVE CENTS.
This exceeding fine, hardy native grape, was raised
from seed by E. W. BI LL, "Concord, Mass. It is very
healthy, vigorous habit, and very productive,bunch rath
er compact, large shouldered, almost black, covered with
bloom, very sweet, it is more hardy than the Isabella,and
ripens about ten days earlier. Consequently it is very
valuable for a large Northern range.
PRICE. ONE DOLLAR.
The precise origin of this is not known, we have the
following account of it from A. THOMSON, of Delaware,
Ohio. It was brought to Delaware by a German, its ex
cellence attracled his attention, and an inquiry as to its
history. It was brought from New Jersey some eighteen
or twenty years ago, having been obtained from the gar
den ot a French gentlemen, PAUI, H. PUOVOST, in Kings
wood twp., lionterdon Co., N.J. It was known in that
vicinity as the Italian Grape, sent from Italy, bunch
small, "a beautiful light red, or flesh color, exceedingly
sweet, one of the most delicious, hardy grapes. It is a
vigorous grower, an early and profuse bearer, and prob
ably morfc hardy than the" Isabella, it ripens two or three
weeks before "the Isabella. No grape more desirable
for our climate.
PRICE, THREE DOLLARS.
A seedling of the Catawba raised v y Mrs. Diana Cre
hon, of Boston, and named hy the Massachusetts Horti
cultural Society. It was announced the bed and most
beautiful of American grapes, particularly valuable for its
earlincss. The color is a fine reddish lilac, it hangs long
on the vines and is not injured by severe frosts ; it is ex
ceediugiy productive and vigorous.
PRICE, ONE DOLLAR.
Raised by Mr. STEEL, < t Hartford, Conn. Hardy, vig
orous and productive, bunch large shouldered, lather
compact, berry large globular, black.covered with bloom,
ripe about ten days betore the Isabella.
PRICE, ONE DOLLAR.
This very popular grape, a native of South Carolina,
was brought to the North and introduced to the notice of
cultivators about the year 181 st. Mrs. ISABELLA GIBBS.
the wife of GBOKGE GIBBS, Esq., in houor of whom it
was named. Its great vigor, hardiness, and productive
ness, with the least possible care, have caused it to be
most widely disseminated. It is probably more bardy.and
ripens earlier than the Catawba, which renders it most
valuable at the North. It is so well known it is hardly
worth while to describe the beautiful fruit it bears.
PRICE TWENTY-FIVE CENTS.
EARLY NORTHERN MUSCANDINE.
This grape ripens the last of Sept., is perfectly hardy.
The variety is a seedling from the native white grape
raised hy PHILEMON STEVENS, Shaker Village, New Leb
anon, Columbia Co., N. Y. Bunch fine and large, light
amber color, and very delicious, very highly spoken of,
and very liardy ahd productive.
PRICE ONE DOLLAR.
A new variety, bunches four inches long, and two and
a half inches in diamater, very compact, color light green
in the shade, or golden in the sun..and covered with a
light bloom, sweet and delicious ripens ten days earlier
than the Isabella, keeping a long time after it is gather
ed. This superior white grape is undoubtedly a native—
chance seedling in the garden of E. M. PKAKE, of Hud
son, N. Y., proved perfectly hardy and productive. It is
not so vigorous in its habits as the Isabella or Catawba ;
but hardy and healthy, and being exceedingly beautiful,
as well as excellent, it must be regarded as a very great
acquisition, it is so well adapted to the North.
PRICE, TWO DOLLARS.
This very attractive grape originated among the Shak
ers at Union Village, Ohio, and was introduced by Mr.
LONGWOBTU, of Cincinnati. It is undoubtedly a seed
ling of Isabella, is very vigorous in growth, and ks fruit
often nearly equals the size of the Black Hamburg. It
ripens about the time of Isabella.
PRICE, ONE DOLLAR.
The following tender variety of grape vines arc all
raised under glass witli one exception, the Chassetas. 1
have succeeded admirably in out door culture with the
vine. Black Hamburg. Red Muscat. White Syrian, Golden
Hamburg. Bishop. Wiiite Frontignan. Black Prince. Blk.
Danuisk, Golden Chasselas, may be found at my garden
The Isabella, Catawba and Clinton, by the 100 or 1000
all well rooted, to any that wish to set vineyards at ex
ceeding low rates. 1 warrant all true to name, any mis
take-or errors shall be made good.' Ido not want some
thing for nothing. A legal thief is the most despicable.
1 wish to advertise a simple fact only—no pulling in pa
pets is wanted. By my own merit I stand or fall, earth
ly tribunals cannot keep me up or down.
" The above grape vines can be had at the garden of
Mr. JOHN A. HAMPER being equally interested, will
travel throughout the county and adjoining counties, and
will give instructions about culture, Ac., and be able to

which are in great demand and very scarce.
