Imported Garden seeds.
We learn that the Ordnance Bureau, with the approval of the Secretary of War
, has imported from Bermuda
, a large quantity of valuable garden seeds
, of the varieties most suitable for cultivation in the Confederacy
Several supplies of these seeds have already been received and sold, (only to persons desiring to plant them) at Government prices, by agents selected by Major W. S. Downer
This enterprise, and its successful execution, reflect much credit upon the Ordnance Bureau, which, whatever may be said as to other departments, has been so well conducted as to escape even censure.
