AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE past month commenced with very wet cold weather. The quantity of water that fell in the midland counties by far exceeded that of any former May within recolleetion ; the effects of which upon agriculture are very obvious to the traveller. The low lands were inundated, and the tenacious soils so uncommonly saturated with the redundant water, as to chill the corn near the furrows, and to sadden the higher parts from which it could escape more freely. No season since 1799 has so clearly shown to the farmer the great importance of under-draining arable land, as no practice is so sure of rendering the soil certain in all seasons.
The young wheat upon clay subsoils is a thin plant, but upon percolating breadths strong, healthful, and forward. The warm weather about the middle of the month caused the crop to put on a more promising appearance than it had in the preceding month.
Barley is very backward in appearance, and much set upon tenacious soils from the wet cold weather ; but upon the sands and light loams it has a promising appearance, though not so forward in growth as in milder seasons.
Oats are also backward, but thick set upon the ground.
Beans, peas, and all the leguminous species, have had a rapid growth, and promise a great and early crop.
The soiling tribe are not so good as in more favourable seasons: they are thin upon the ground, and appear much injured by the cold wet weather.
The brassicas, what small portion was left from the severity of the season, have not run so early as they do in warmer springs.
Hops throw up a strong bine, and the orchards have the most promising appearance. From the backward state of the blossom we may expect a great fruit season.
The pastures and grass upon high lands have grown much since the weather changed, and promise an early full crop.
