--Mr. John Morton, florist, whose skill in the arrangement of flowers is proverbial, presented to the President's wife, on Monday evening, a bouquet of rare beauty.
We know of no more appropriate offering to the shrine of female worth, than the combined floral treasures of the autumnal season, before the frost has dimmed their lustre or impaired their fragrance.
