CRYSTAL PALACE QBE AT ROSE SHOW. The great rose show at the Crystal Palace on Satur- day was attended by a very large and fashionable company. There were thousands of persons present. The number was greater than was anticipated, taking into consideration that, on the previous day, the great rehearsal of the Handel Festival took place. At times during the afternoon the stands were so crowded that moving about was next to an impossibility. The stand in the north nave for the sale of the Handel Festival tickets, as well as those at the entrances, was besieged throughout the day. The extreme heat of the morning had caused many of the growers to lose their flowers; but, notwithstanding this, the show was not on!y very large, but of an unusually fine character.
