MR. RYLANDS kindly communicated a list of several of the rarer plants, said to have been found about Warrington, in Lancashire; the stations of some of them being on the Cheshire side of the river. But I fear to copy from the list, for the plants of either county, as it professes to have been partly drawn from a source the accuracy of which there is too much ground for doubting. The doubts arise from the introduction of several plants which are very unlikely to occur in this part of England; and I am unable to say to what extent the including of others may have depended on the same authority.
