METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

From the beginning of May till about the middle, the weather was wet and coldish, and from the middle till the end dry and warm. During the former period, there were only five days dry throughout; during the latter, only one shower fell, and that not exceeding one-tenth of an inch. On the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th, it rained almost incessantly, the quantity amounting in all to an inch and nearly nine-tenths. After the 15th, it set in very dry, with a considerable increase of temperature, the barometer remaining steady at an elevation above 30 inches. For many years there has been no such weather experienced in this country during the month of May, in point of temperature at least, as has prevailed since the 15th. The thermometer rose repeatedly to 70, and during the night sometimes sunk no lower than 50. Though the early part of the month was coldish, the mean temperature is fully four degrees higher than last year. It is some what remarkable, however, that the hygrometer (Leslie's) is more than five degrees los. er, notwithstanding the elevated temperature, and if allowance were made for that ele vation, the difference would be several degrees more.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

From the middle of May to this date, the weather has been warm and genial in a greater degree than we ever remember it to have been at this season ; the thermometer in the shade having been often above 70°. In our younger days, we have often heard of the plouglmen beginning their yoking at two or three o'clock in the morning in the month of May, resting from breakfast time to mid-afternoon, and finishing their task in the cool of the evening. This, which, if true, we were inclined to ascribe to the indolence of our beur-sced cultivators, whose labours were chiefly confined to seed-time and harvest, has been rendered sufficiently credible, and the expediency of the practice justitied, by the high temperature of the greater part of last month, as well as of the present. There are yet some complaints of the grub; from the ravages of which, however, the crops are fast recovering ; and in some places the hay-crop will be deficient in clover plants ; but, upon the whole, the prospect of both an early and abundant harvest in our fields, orchards, and gardens, is extremely flattering. There has been but little rain for this month past, yet the drought does not scem to be hurtful, though a supply of moisture must be wanted for making the turnip-seed vegetate,-a crop for which the labour is now in great forwardness. The corn-markets declined during May, but have since be. gun to look up, especially for wheat. Of this grain there is understood to be less than usual on the fields, partly owing to the lateness of last harvest, and the unfavourable weather at the end of autumn, which, as well as the wetness of the summer, prevented the fallows from being completed for sowing in due season, and partly owing to the small extent of the spring sown wheats, which had very generally failed in this climate for the last two seasons. Grass-fed meat begins to come into the butcher-market, so that prices have given way since the middle of last month. A pretty good leg of lamb, weighing from 6 to 8 lbs., can now be got in our market for 3s. or 4s., and will soon bé sold for the half of it. Old potatoes are still at a moderate price; but the new, now selling per pint at as much as the lamb-leg, are still confined to the tables of the wealthy, June 13,
