FRANCE.-The German mails, lately arrived, have opened so far an intercourse with this country, for money negotiation, hut the restrictions are so sig.d on the Continent, that. it is dangerous to risk either the drawing or excepting bills between the two countries, and in consequence thereof little or nothing is done in that way. By these mails, we are in., formed that the ports of Bordeaux, &c. &c. are full of wines, brandics, &c. and no port apen to receive them, although offered at very low prices. All other kind of commerce is totally extinct in France, and their fabricated paper money bear an enormous discount,

PORTUGAL, The accounts of the last mail from Lisbon, fully informs us of this country being at length completely cleared of the French, by the allied armies, and that in Consequence of it, the paper-money bears now only a discount of 2 per cent, which MON TULY MAG. No. 212.

a few mionths back was at 30 per cent! Such are the changes caused by the efforts of our brave countrymen. The trade, however, must take a considerable time to get into ita usual channel.

SPAIN.- A dreadful hurricane took place here the beginning of the present month, when upwards of 150 sail of ships, chiefly lying in the bay at Cadiz, nrove out to sea ; upwards of forty sail were totally lost, and the remainder suffered considerable damage. Two of their register ships had arrived from Suuth America, bringing remittiinces in dollars to the amount of upwards of one million British sterling, as also considerable remittances in pro. dure to the Spanish merchants.

WEST INDIES.-By the last mails, we are informed of the fleet's arrival at the Leeward and Windward islands from Cork, with a plentiful supply of provisions of all kinds, of which the states were in the greatest want of. The islands are amply supplied, and indeed overstocked wih all kinds of British manulactured goods, and considerable, remittances in produce were shipping for Great Britain, &c. &c.

SOUTH AMERICA. The markets here hegin to get rather more brisk than usual, for all our manufactured gouds, and trade with the Spanish settlements, were brisk to a degree unknown hitherto. We however recommend our mercantile friends to be careful in not shipping off goods, (as hitherto) of inferior quality, the market already having been over. stocked with large quantities of low-priced Manchester goods, for which no sale can be bad. · Current Prices of Sharęs in Navigable Canals, Docks, Bridges, Ruads, Water Works, and Fire and Live Insurance Companies, at the Office of Messrs.

MARCH
Love's pleasing ferment gently now begins

TO warm the powing blood.
NO weather could possibly have been more acceptable at this season of the year, than that

which we have experienced during the course of the present month. The crops are all looking well. Nor have we yer had any of those furious gales which are usually expected about this time There were strong gales from west-north-west on the 3d, and from westsouth west on the 6 h, 7th, and 8th, and these were the only boisterous days we have had. The wind was westerly, or oorth-west, from the 1st to the grli, in the afternoon of which day ir was south. Ora che 6tn, 7th, and 8th, it was west-south-west ; on the 9th north-east, and afterwards west. On the 12th it was cásterly, and so continued till the 18th, when it veered.

found to west. On the 22d it was north, and from the following day to the end of the month asterly.

There was rain on the 1st, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 22d, but during all the remainder of the month the weather was dry. March 5th. Rooks have begun to build their nests; and daffodils are in flower,

The capsules of several species of moss now adorn the banks of hedges and ditches, and the tops of old walls.

March 7th. The marsh marygolds (calba palustris) are in flower, and give to all the wet meadows a golden hue..

March 8th. Several kinds of insects crawl out of their hybernacula, in old buildings, para ticularly spiders, millipedes, and a species of the slow-beetle, or darkling (renebrio mortisagus of Linnæus, blaps mortisaga, of Marshara).

March 10th. The vernal whitlow-grass (draba verna), and purple dead nettle (lamium pure pureum) are in flower.

March 11th. Some of the smaller kinds of ants are busily employed in opening their holes, and clearing their nests. On artencively observing them, they are seen to bring out grains of sand or other small objects which incommode them in their habitation, and to de. posit them at a little distance on the exterior of their holes.

March 12th. A caterpillar was this day seen crawling upon the road. Seven dark coloured butterflies were fitting about the fields.

March 14th. The farina of the malé yew-trees is blown off by the wind in great guantity. *.The plumage of all the small birds is now in the very height of its beauty. Bird.catchers technically call the plumage, at this season, their “ wedding garments," * The flowers of some of the willows begin to fade. - March 18th. The leaves of the lilaç and weeping willow appear. Primroses and violets re in flower.

March 20. - Water lizards are seen in abundance in two or three of the shallow and gravelly ponds of this neighbourhood. But I have not yet remarked that they have begua o spawn.

March 21. The roads, which only a few days ago, had pools of water standing in almost erery hollow, are now quite dry and dusty.

March 24. The leaf-buds of the mulberry tree appear nearly ready to burst; but it is probable that these trees will not be in leaf for several days. The leaves of the bramble, woodbine, and elder, have been out some time.

March 26. A species of wood-bug, which I think is cimex baccarum, was this day brought to me.

The scentless violet (viola canina) and common stitchwort (stellaria belsltea) are in flower, March 28. This was a peculiarly hot day for the season. Insects of numerous kinds were in active employment. Bees were Aying about such plants as were in flower; sand-wasps (ammupbıla vulgaris) about sandy banks; and opatrum sabulosum, several species of curculio, and small carabi, crawling about among the stunted vegetation of the road-sides.

March 30. Lapwings fly screaming over the wet meadows.

March 31. The easterly winds, which have prevailed for the last nine days of the month, have been extremely seasonable. They have tended considerably to check vegetation, which, dering the preceding warm weather, was making too rapid a progress for this early part of the year. I have not yet remarked that any of the standard.fruit trees are in flower,
