FRUIT GROWING. TO THE EDITOR 01' THE TIMES. Sir, — Lord Fortescue has done well to direct public attention to some extravagant utterances on fruit culture. To persons who really under stand the subject of garden culture acquired by long and not unsuccessful practice, various articles and leaflets that are circulated on the subject, and on dotting thousands of little Edeus all over the country, represent ignor ance, nothing but ignorance. They do not deceive the experienced, and only the inexpeti euced could venture to push such theoretical extravagances on a credulous world. Let...

That such is the inolancholy case brings to tho front once again tho question of public mot ulity, and how 'it is to be maintained.

Liedertafel Smoke Concert. (TO THE EDITOR O*1 T1I13 CU3IUE11LAND AHCIUS.) Sik, — May I express my disgust, through your paper, at tho excessively bad taste dis played by tho majority of tho audience at tho above concert en AVodnosday last, iu applaud ing botweon the versos of every song and dur ing the rests in tho instrumental parts, ap plause which no pcrform:.T over appreciates. It was not done during the choruses, and where is tho difference ? This ill timed enthusiasm must bo attributed to deplorable ignorance rather than appreciation of music. Then, again, striking matches during a performance. I counted as many ns fifteen during ono item. Is it absolutely necessary to placo notices round tho room to teach a few snobs how to behave themselves? Tho noise at the bar throughout tho second part of the programme was simply disgraceful, Thanking you in advance for airing my grievances. — Yours, etc., A.R.A.M. Parramatta, Fob. 28, 1880.
