Ah, now we're getting somewhere. Think how easy this would be if
you'd provided this information initially.

Well, your rpart() statement won't run, so obviously you can't see the tree.
There's no data argument, and the variable names don't match the
column headers in the data you provided.
Here's a revised version, that prints and plots the tree, and predicts
some test data.
# corrected rpart(), guessing at what you meant
markdata <- read.table("http://statcourse.com/research/boston.csv", ,
sep=",", header = TRUE)
fit <- rpart (MEDV~ CRIM+ZN+INDUS+CHAS+NOX+RM+AGE+DIS+RAD+TAX+
# two ways of looking at the complete tree
# predicting a few values
mark.subsample <- markdata[1:5,]
predict(fit, mark.subsample, type="vector")
If this is your actual code, your problem was far more basic than plotting
and predicting. Sharing your error messages would have been a good start.
