In the course of the present month, the writer of this article, had occasion to apply to an intelligent friend at Carmarthen, to ascertain the prices of living in South Wales; and he received the following particulars: it appears by this statement that a good family house and garden can be had in and near Carmarthen, from 501. to 301. per annum, subject to from 151. to 101. taxes and rates ;-chat bread is 4d. per lb. ; butter 18.7d. per lb. of 24 ounces ; cheese 6d. per Ib. ; beef 644. per lb.; mutton 5d. per lb.; and fish, vegetables, and fuel, half the London prices.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT. VERY little wheat yet sown, and, where the seed has been put in, the operation has been

badly performed from the wetness of the land. Scarcely any young wheats have yet appeared above ground, excepting in those tew districts where very early sewing is practised. The backwardness of the se-son has been universal, extending to every branch of husbandry. Clover sced and beans smysl abroad, receiving considerable injury, and not improbably part of the latter may remair. until the return of bean setting. Some oats and barley, still Out, must be harvested by we hogs. The above account refers chiefly to our earliest and best tilled counties ; in one north, of course, the harvest has been still more backward, expensive, and einbarrassing; and, as it seems scarcely practicable to complete the required breadth of autumnal wheat-sowing, no doubt but recourse will be had to spring wheat, hitherto so success. ful, to an unusual extent in the ensuing year. Garden seeds have generally failed. Biling pease rise but indifferency in Suffo k. Much corn still out in the sen counties. The great hurry in the farmers of thrashing and sending wheat to market abated, or rather at an end, • Fixed at this maximum by the Excise laws.

The average temperature for the month is equal to 40-50, which is lower than it usually is for the same month, and almost 5° lower than it was for November 1811. The mean height of the barometer for the same period is 29.4 nearly, which is also low, and lower indeed than might be expected, considering the quantity of rain fallen, which is by no means remarkable. We have on this hill had a few days gloomy; and slight fogs twice, but the num. ber of fine brilliant days have been eleven; so that the month cannot be said to have corresponded with what is usually denominated November weather. On twelve days, rain has tallen. The wind has blown hurricanes some days, particularly on the 27th ult. when much mischief was done, and a poor lamplighter, in the act of his business, was blown from his ladder on Blackfriars'-bridge into the Thames, and was drowned.
