Absence of singing-birds among our trees? 1865.

Canaries.—There is nothing which strangers so quickly notice as the absence of singing-birds among our trees and in our gardens. We have to rely on imported birds, and among these the canary is the finest songster. The house that has a canary bird, has in it at least one happy creature, which from early dawn till twilight, warbles its cheerful strain. Those wishing to procure these birds, can find a large collection at B. F. Ehlers’ in Fort street, lately received from Bremen.
