TO THE EDITOB, Blß,—When 1 visited the Exhibition the other day I entered the fernery, which presents a most beautiful picture of Nature. Whilßt looking around, an idea struck me that, to give it (the fernery) a more natural aspect, would be to place a few of our native birds therein, such as, for instance, the fantail, the warbler, and wren. The former, which is almost tame at any time, would look very attractive fluttering amongst the ferns, and would almost find enough to eat without any attendance. I would suggest this as a great attraction.—l am, etc*., An Admiher or Nature. Dunedin, October 19.
