AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

THE humid unsettled state of the atmosphere, through nearly the whole of last month, has very much impeded the early spring sowing, which may probably verify the old adage. that Beans soun in a flood, will come up like a wood. A wei March is not an appropriate season for the improved agriculture of this country.

The young wheats in the northern counties have suffered so much, either from the late period in which the seed is deposited, or from the unfavourable weather, hat they scarcely have the appearance of whear, and in many places cannot be distinguished from the fallows

On the free percolating subsoils in the milland and southern counties there is a very promising plant,

The barley lands upon stiff loams work very clung and unkind. If the weather should continue dry, the barley of this summer will in many situations be of two growths.

Turnips, cabbages, and all the brassica tribe, having suffered so much from the changeable severity of the weather, has caused heavy draughi from the hay tack, which can only be obviated by the great breadths and promising state of the soiling crops.

The backward state of the bud and blossom promises fair for a fruitful season.
