METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

THE commencement of the present year has very much resembled that of 1817. The weather throughout the whole of January has been variable, and sometimes stormy. The changes from frost to thaw were frequent and rapid, and sometimes accompanied with violent winds from the west and south-west. On the whole, however, the season has been hitherto rather open than otherwise. The mean temperature has declined scarcely one degree since December, and is nearly one degree higher than that of Ja. nuary last year. A very unusual fluctuation took place in the barometer on the 16th. On the morning of that day it stood at 29.8, and by the morning of the 17th it had sunk to 28.7, being one inch and one-tenth in 24 hours. There was nothing in the state of the weather, here at least, to account for such a sudden depression. The mean range of the mercury for the month is almost precisely the same as that of the corresponding month of last year. For an explanation of the additions to the following abstract, we refer our readers to the second article in our January Number.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

Soon after the date of our last, the weather resumed the mildness of the preceding months, the slight covering of snow disappeared on our low grounds, and for some time there has been very little frost or rain, but a clear and cloudy sky alternately, with a temperature often as high as 45° of Fahrenheit, more pleasant than we often find it in A. pril or even the early part of May. The German Tamarisk unfolded its buds about the end of December, and by the beginning of this month the shoots were two inches long; the Snow-drop appeared about the 5th January, and was in full blow by the 16th ; and the blossoms of the Erica herbucca (an early flowering heath) began to open about the end of the month. The land, except soils naturally very wet, is almost everywhere ready to receive the spring seeds, an operation in which some progress has already been made, while the sowing of wheat after turnips has proceeded throughout the vinter with very little interruption. Neither corn nor meat markets have varied much since the middle of last month ; in the former some little advance may be expected when sowing becomes general, especially as foreign wheat must be excluded from our ports by the quarterly average about to be announced ; but the feeder who purchased stock at the high prices of the autumnal markets has but an indifferent prospect of being repaid. The season is particularly favourable for the early lambs, as it has all along been, even e our mountains, for their dams and other kinds of grown sheep.

The first of the Agricultural Petitions has been presented to the House of Commons, and received in such a manner as to put an end to all anxiety on the subject in the minds of those who are hostile to further restrictions on the Corn Trade. (See our Parlementary Intelligence.)—The attention of the House has been called to a wiser measare, the correction of the returns of prices, and of the method in which the quarterly averages are calculated. Without greater accuracy in these matters, the corn laws must be, some degree, only a dead letter.
