T. Rivers and Son respectfully inform their friends, that, owing to the last favourable season, their Plants, both Standards and Dwarfs, are very fine and healthy. In consequence of the increase in the number of fine Roses, they now beg to suggest to those beginning the culture of Roses, to consult the abridged catalogue, in the " Rose Amateur's Guide," of varieties calculated for beginners, or Amateurs with small gardens; to such also they venture to give fie following advice : — Fix upon a given sum for the amount of the order, and the families of Roses to which a preference is given, and leave to them the selection of sorts; if the situation and soil be described, this will be found to be by far the most eligible plan, as a better selection can then often be made, better plants sent, and they will be charged less than the prices in the Catalogue by one fourth. The Climbing Roses, and all the Roses of the Autumnal Rose Garden, are kept in pots, so as to be removed with safety at any season.

This Catalogue being intended for the'Rose Amateur solely, the greatest attention has been paid to arranging the Roses so as to group well; in the Perpetual Rosos particularly, botanical affinity has been sacrificed to this. In the Hybrid China Roses, a few are related to the l'lle de Bourbon Rose; and, in some others in this division, it is difficult to decide which has the preponderance, — the China Rose, Rosa gallica, or Rosa centifolia: in a singularly robust habit and luxuriant foliage they all agree.

Catalogues may be had gratis of Mr. Kernan, Seedsman, 4. Great Russell Street, Covent Garden, who exhibits blooms of all the choicest varieties, in his seed-shop, during the Summer and Autumn.

The following terms are used to express the form of the flower: —

Globular The outer petals encircling the flower till fully blown, in the manner of the Common Cabbage, or

Provence, Rose.
Expanded. — The flower rather flat, petals open, in some varieties showing the central stamens.
Cupped The outer row of petals erect, rather incurved, inclosing numerous smaller petals; the Crimson Perpetual

Rose, when first open, will illustrate this term.
Reflexed. — The petals turned back, something like the French Marigold.

Imbricated. — The flower flat, petals lying over each other like those in the centre of a good Double Anemone.
Compact. — Petals stiff, close and upright, resembling a Double Ranunculus.

Those marked P have long flexible shoots, and are well adapted for Rose Pillars.

The Nursery at Sawbridgeworth is 23 miles from. London, on the Newmarket, Cambridge, and Norwich Road. Morning Coaches from the Flower Pot, Bishopsgaie Street, at 6, 7, and. 8; and, at 10, from the Green Dragon in the same Street; returning in the Afternoon; and from the Belle Sauvage, Ludgate Hill.
