METEOROLOGICAL REPORT,

From the 1st of the month till the morning of the 3d, the weather was clear and frosty, every thing indicating a settled storm. On the 3d, however, the wind shifted from the west to the east, and, during the evening of that day, the ground was covered with snow. This was followed by mild days, with a slight degree of frost at night, and a gradual increase of heat till the 11th, when the atmosphere became very dry, and the mean temperature again diminished. On the 15th, the air passed quickly from a state of great dryness, to that of almost complete saturation, apparently owing to a change of wind. A heavy fall of rain followed on the 16th and 17th, and again on the 21st, amounting, during the three days, to about an inch and a half. From this time till the end of the month, there was more or less frost every night, and the average temperature was lower than during the preceding part of the month, with occasional showers of snow. This, however, generally disappeared in the course of a day, and the weather on the whole was by no means stormy or severe. The mean temperature is 1.2 lower than the preceding month, but 1.3 higher than February 1818. The mean temperature of spring water is also 1.3 higher than during the same month last year. The daily range of the thermometer is a fraction greater, and of the barometer less, than during the month of January.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

With the exception of a few days about the beginning of this month, the weather has been singularly favourable for sowing, lambing, and all the operations of the sea. son, since our last ;-dry, mild, and steady, with the wind chiefly from the west. Beans, wheat, (spring sown,) and a large portion of the oats, have been put into the ground under very auspicious circumstances. The autumn sown wheat is uncommonly for. Fard, and the plants abundant and healthy, not appearing to have suffered, at least in this quarter, by their premature growth at the beginning of winter. In some places there is a great complaint of weeds, which the mildness of the winter has favoured as well as the grain plants; to the same cause it may be owing that the remains of the former crop have in some instances kept possession, and now share the soil with that of the present year. This is particularly the case where wheat was sown after beans, the latter in soine fields bearing a decent proportion to the foriner. Our Tables show that there has been little alteration of late in the corn market; and the probability now is, that

, notwithstanding an acknowledged deficiency in last crop, prices will continue for a month or two nearly at the same rate. The ports are shut against wheat till the third week of May, but continue open to all other kinds of grain. The meat market has been always fully supplied at moderate prices; in Smithfield, since the beginning of the present month, the trade has been brisker, and prices somewhat higher, but there is still do want of keep, and, with the prospect of early pasturage, a considerable advance is not to be expected.

The agricultural petitions continue to be presented to the House of Commons. They are read and laid on the table in due form, with but little remark from either side of it, and no difference of opinion as to the inexpediency of the measure prayed for. 15th March.

HORTICULTURE. -Perth, 12th March.-Spring crocusses vere in full blow by the 15th February. The flowers of the common mezereon made their appearance on the 4th March.

The Tussilago farfara, a semi-aquatic and indigenous plant, sent up its flower-stems by the 20th February, and by tne oth March the flowers were fully expanded. The Howers of the Saxifraga oppositifolia, a small mountain plant usually kejit in gardens, began to expand by the lith, at which time apricor trees on walls began to show their blossores, and early varieties of gooseberries were coming into

leaf.

COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE..Sugars. The sugar market has been rather heavy dur. ing the month. Muscovades have fallen between 25. and 3s. per cwt. Last week some low browns, a little washed, were sold so low as 70s. ; some brown Demerara at 72s. ; and inferior qualities rather a shade lower ; the refined market has also been without briskness; but holders still refuse to make sales at the present reduced prices. In foreign sugars little business has been done ; and molasses are also heavy and declining. Cotton.—The sales of cotton on Friday the 26th nlt at the East India House, consisted of 1780 bags ; nearly the whole of which was withdrawn or taken in. Of 829 bales Surats 264 were sold; 86 bales good Toomel at 10 d. to 104d. per lb. ; 48 bales good Surat 8 d. to 8fd.; for lower qualities there were no offers. Of 240 Bengals, 122 were sold,- middling to good quality at 5 d. to 6d. 400 Madras were all bought in at 73d. to 8 d. Since then the market continues heavy : Bengal and Pernambuco cottons have been inquired for, but few purchases made. Coffee. There has been a considerable revival of the demand for this article. Last week good ordinary St Domingo was sold at 124s. to 1256. ; Brasil 122s. to 124s. ; Cheribon 1238. There was but one public sale last week, and the coffee sold went off at a small reduction; middling Demerara 1358. to 1378. ; some very fine ordinary Jamaica realized 130s. 6d. Rum.- The demand for Jamaica rum revived considerably towards the end of last month ; but the pressure in the money market has completely suspended it, and there is no business doing. Tobacco.—The tobacco market has been improving; the parcels sold three weeks ago at 4fd. to 44d. per lb. have advanced to 5d. and 54d. The imports of last month are only 954 hhds. and the stocks are materially decreasing ; the quantity being about 16,800 Virginia, &c. and 2100 Marylands. Wils.-Greenland has fallen about L. I per tun : but the demand is zatlier improving. Cod oil is also a shade lower; and Gallipoli has fallen L. 5 to L. 6. Spermaceti is considerably lower, owing to the arrival of some English, and also a cargo from the United States. Tea.-The sale at the India House commenced last Tuesday ; the Boheas and Congous have sold about 2d. per Ib. lower than at last sale.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE. Tallow. The demand for tallow towards the close of last week was considerable, and prices a little improved ; but they have again receded, and the market become heavy. Hemp has been in request, and prices have now advanced L. 2 to L. 3. In Flax there is little variation. Brandy. The finer qualities maintain their currency, but inferior are offered lower. Geneva has declined a little...March 9.
