There are a hundred & twenty five different kinds of grass, including the cerial [cereal] grains within the state of Illinois, 101 of them being native to the soil 11 introduced, and are now found in a wild state-and 10 that are only known in cultivation.

Introduced No. 5, 6, 8, 15, 39, 40, 45, 69, 92, 93, 115
Cultivated No. 76, 77, 78, 80, 83, 91, 95, 117, 124, 125

Of these it is proposed in the present paper to give such discriptions [descriptions], accompanied by figures as will enable any one to detect the different species; to show their general character, and uses, if any; and to give some general observations on the nature of grasses, in general.-

Though rice might be cultivated at the southern extreme of the state it is not at all probable that it will ever be produced to any considerable extent in Illinois.-
