[Apple crop]

Messrs. J. W. Draper and Son, Covent-garden, report in the Garden that the crop of American apples is most prolific this season. In England the crop is comparatively a failure; in France a poor half-crop is calculated upon; in Germany, one third crop only; in Holland, only half a crop; and in Belgium not half a crop.
