Our report for the month of June will be found rather discouraging to such of our readers As are disposed to cherish the expoctation of a favourable change in our climate. The maximum temperature has never approached nearer than eleven degrees and a half to the maximum of June 1818, and eighi degrees to that of 1817. The mean temperature has also declined 45 degrees, and is actually a degree lower than that of 1817. The minimum has never been lower than 41} ; but in consequence of a clear atmosphere, the ground has been frequently at the freezing point, and vegetation, especially during the last part of the month, has made little progress. The mean of the extreme temperatures differs, from that of 10 morning and evening, only by three tenths of a degree. The daily range of the Thermometer is almost exactly the same as June last year. The mean height of the Barometer is nearly the annual average, and the fluctuations have been rather less than usual. Of the rain, about an inch and a half fell on the 20th, and three following days. On the day that the rain began, the Hygrometer stood higher than at any other period during the month; and the Barometer, which had previously sunk about three tenths, began again to rise, and continued to do so till the rain was over. The average quantity of moisture, in a hundred cubic inches of air, is somewhat less than June 1818, the one being .21 and the other .23 of a grain. The relative humidity, however, is three degrees greater, owing to the higher temperature of last year. The point of deposition, at 10 A. M. coincides exactly with the mean minimum temperature, and affords another proof of the accuracy of Anderson's Principles of Hygrometry. The temperature of spring wator, which, in consequence of the mildness of the winter and spring, had been con siderably higher than during the corresponding months of 1817, has now fallen behind that of last year, being about four degrees lower than at the same period last sunmer. The increase, however, since the month of May, has been considerable.
