It is much to be regretted that the funds necessary for keeping up the Garden on the Parade cannot be raised among the inhabitants of Kingston, who have always bee noted for acts of generosity and a desire to assist any useful undertaking. It cannot be denied that the establishment of a permanent Garden on the Parade would add materially to the improvement of the City and present to strangers visiting it something like an effort to appear in keeping with other civilized Towns. Much labour and attention have been bestowed upon the Trees now growing on the Parade, by Mr. Andrew Lyon and Mr. Henry Ford, without which, no doubt, these Trees would have languished and died shortly after being planted, although the community subscribed handsomely at the outset of the project. The small amount of 10s or 12s per week, (Mr. Lyon says), would be sufficient to keep up the Garden effectively. Will Kingston really allow such a shame to come upon her as the abandonment of the undertaking without making an effort to prevent it? We would recommend Mr. Lyon to enlist the kind offices of the Ladies - a practice that has met with approval in other communities; and by the appointment of a Collector to visit subscribers of even a shilling per quarter, sufficient funds, we are sure, would be raised to keep up the Garden.
