N.B. The Observations are made twice every day, at nine o'clock forenoon and four o'clock afternoon. The second Observation, in the afternoon, in the first column, is taken by the Register Thermometer.
The dry weather, which had produced such pernicious effects on the growing crop at the date of our last, continued (with the exception of a shower on the 15th) till the 24th, at which period serious apprehensions were entertained for every thing connected with vegetation. A moderate shower fell on the 24th, and less or more rain fell on each of the ten succeeding days, accompanied with a temperature averaging about 58° Fahrenheit. The depth of rain during that time amounted to two inches; since our last, to two inches and seven-tenths. As might have been expected, the effects of the rains on the growing crop has been particularly favourable. Wheat had the ear previously formed, and on light lands it was short; but a luxuriance is now communicated to the plant that will insure a well-filled car. Lateral shoots of oats, that began to languish, have acquired fresh vigour; early varieties are in full ear, and promise well. Barley that was early sown is in many instances rather thin, but shews a fine ear with dark-green foliage. Beans have clongated considerably; and pease are now in full flower, and promise a bulky crop Potatoes shew healthy spreading foliage; early varieties swell rapidly. Turnips were for the most part sown before the rains, and a fair braird has been obtained; but an unusual number of annual weeds appear in every turnip field. The hay harvest commenced about the last week in June. The crop is light, and the weather has been rather unfavourable for getting it secured. A great breadth still remains in the small cock. The second cutting of clover comes forward boldly, and pastures now afford a full bite. Vegetation is about eighteen days earlier than at this period last year. In the corn market, sales have been rather dull of late, and prices begin to retrograde. A good deal of wheat is still on hand, and indifferent samples are almost unsaleable. In barley there is little doing. Oats continue to command a brisk sale, but prices are looking down; and bonded oats are now sure to meet the current crop in the market by the end of next month. The price of cattle has improved since the rains. Horses are not purchased with the same avidity as in the spring months. Sheep go off well, and wool is expected to rise a little higher in price than last year.
