AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

SINCE our last Report the weather has been remarkably favourable to field work of every kind ; and the seed was never put into the ground with a better prospect of an early and vigorous vegetation. This, however, was much retarded by the want of rain : and until the 12th instant, when we had plentiful showers, such of the grain-plants as had appeared above ground showed symptoms of feebleness in many instances, and later sown fields in general were thinly and irregularly planted. It is well known, that, in this part of the island, wheat suffered more than any other kind of corn last year; yet there is reason to fear that oats, even when not deficient in weight or in meal, have suffered in such a degree as to impair their vegetative powers. It is certain, at least, that where a comparison has been made between the oats of 1815 and 1816, by sowing both on different portions of the same field, the plants from the seed of the former year are by far the most close and vigorous. There has been a gradual fall in the prices of all sorts of grain for some weeks, particularly of inferior samples ; though in the London market, and throughout the whole of England, if we may judge from the weekly averages, they have not given way so much as in Scotland, into which very large importations have been made since the beginning of this month.-Cattle, in forward condition, find purchasers ; and grazing lands have been let for the season at the rates of last year, or somewhat more.-Wool is expected to improve in value, the import of that article of late not having been so large as formerly. The apprehensions which were once entertained of a great scarcity must now have subsided, for there is no doubt whatever of our having enough of corn to carry us forward to another harvest. Prices, indeed, cannot be low ;-but it deserves to be remarked, that if Government had interfered, as on former occasions, by bounties and prohibitions, and thus sounded the alarm all over Europe, the price of wheat, in particular, would have been higher this year in Britain than it has ever been in the memory of man.

METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

In our Meteorological Report for the first three months of this year, we gave the results of our observations, without any comparison between the last and the present year. It may not however be uninteresting to our readers to state, that the mean temperature of the four months of this year that have just elapsed, considerably exceeds the mean temperature of the corresponding months of last year. The difference of the month of January, is 59, February 6°, March 3, and April 4°. The effects of this difference are quite obvious in the unusually forward state of vegetation in gardens and orchards, and would have been equally conspicuous in the corn-fields, but for the severe and long-continued drought.
