TH E history of the grape is almost as old as that of man
—growing in its highest perfection in Syria and Per
sia. Its liicious 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
wereexten sivety planted, long leforc orchards or col
lections of other Iruit trees were at all common.
The grapes of the old world are all varieties of the wine
grape, which, though 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 conntry, as the
civilization advanced westward, this plant accompanied
It—first to Egypt, then to Greece and Sicily, and gradu
ally to Ttaly, Spain, France, and Britain ; to which lat
ter, country the Romans carried it about two hundred
years alter Christ. To America the seeds and plants of
the European varieties were brought by numerous Emi
grants and Colonists, within the first fifty years alter its
The wild grapes of onr 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 in 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 by settiug the vine in a favorable exposure to
the sun". The late varieties that I offer for sale, are all
earlier than the Isabella hut one. 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 iazv, he may have
round him all the varieties of grapes in a high state of
cultivation, and his garden adorned with nil the beautiful
and social productions of this fair world of ours, and a
mind that has any stir in it at all. by little enquiry and
practice, may learn to cultivate anything that grows.
I consider the following variety of grapes the very best
to cultivate for outdoor culture in our northern climate,
out of the vast variety.
This excellent hardy grape, is the true Burgundy grape
so highly valued tor wine in Frame. The fruit is very
sweebaud excellent, and the hardiness of the vine reu
ders it one ot the best varieties in the open air in this
climetc. Bunch smalt, compact,(i.e. berries closely set,)
Berries midlc-sized, roundish-oval, black, juice sweet,
good, ripen- about 26th of Sept. Thompson gives more
than forty synonymes to this grape.
PRICE SEVENTY FIVE CENTS.
Thin excellent native grape, was first introduced to
notice by Muj. AHU M, of (Georgetown. 1). C.. and was
found by liim 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 ft thick bloom, eatable eight or
ten days before Isabella, frosts make them very good.
PRICE, TWENTY-FIVE CENTS."
This exceeding fine, hardy native grape, was raised
from seed by E. W. BULL, 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 attracted 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 of a"French gentlemen. PAI L H. PBOVOST, in Kings
woodtwp., Hunterdon Co.. N. J. it was known in that
vicinity as the Italian Grape, sent from Italy, bunch
small,* heautiftil light red, or flesh color, exceedingly
sweet, one of the most delicious, hardy grapes. It j-a
vigorous grower, an early and profuse bearer, and prob
ably more 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 by the Massa' iwseit* Horti
cultural Society. It was announced the best and most
beautiful of American grapes, particularly valuable for its
earliness. The color is a fine reddish lilac, it hangs long
on the vines and is not injured by severe frosts ; it is ex
ceedingly productive and vigorous.
PRICE, ONE DOLLAR.
Raised by Mr. STKEL, ot Hartford, Conn. Hardy, vig
orous and productive, bunch large shouldered, rather
compact, berry large globular, black,covered with bloom,
ripe about ten days before the Isabella.
PRICE, ONE DOLLAR.
This very popular grape, a native of South Carolina,
was brougfit to the North and introduced to the notice ol
cultivators about the year I*lß. Mrs. ISABELLA GIUBS,
the wife of GKOUGB GIBBS. Esq., in honor of whom it
was named. Its great vigor, hardiness, and productive
ness, with the least possible care, have caused it to he
most widely disseminated. It is probably more hardy .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 by PHILEMON STEVENS, Shaker Village, New I-eb
anon, Columbia Co., N. Y. Bunch tine and large, light
amtier color, and very delicious, very highly spoken of,
and very hardy and 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, ft must be regarded ;ts 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.
JJONGWOBTU, of Cincinnati, it is undoubtedly a"seed
ling of Isabella, is very vigorous in growth, and its fruit
often nearly equals the size of the Black Hamburg, it
ripens about the tiiiie of Isabella.
PRICE, ONE DOLLAR.
The following tender variety r>f grape vines are aii
raised under.glass with one exception, the Chetetaa. 1

vine. Black Hamburg, Red Muscat, White Syrian, Golden
Hamburg. Bishop, White Frontignan. Black Prince, Blk.
