The thirteenth annual Exhibition of St. Matthew's (West Kensington Park) Association took place last week in the National Schools. There was a remarkably good show of window plants, including geraniums, fuchsias, musk, and other favourites with the working classes of London: The prizes were distributed in the coarse of the evening, when Mr. Arthur Mills, look the chair. After some interesting remarks as to the flowers in New Zealand and other countries, which he had recently visited in his voyage round the world, he encouraged the crowded audience to go on in their pleasant and healthful employment in cultivating flowers for their homes. Mrs. Mills then gave away the prizes.
