The Alta Californian complains of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN for copying an article on " California "Wines," some weeks since, and crediting it to the California Farmer instead of to the Aha, in whose columns it originally appeared. We plead "not guilty " to any intentional oversight in this matter. We received the article in slips, sent directly from a wine-grower in Los Angelos; and as they bore the imprint of the Farmer, we had no other just alternative but to so credit it. As we seldom get"sight of the Alta, we shall certainly be excused for having once raiscredited its productions.
