METEOROLOGICAL REPORT,

The month of March lias been unusually warm and dry. After a shower of snow on the 1st, the temperature continued pretty stationary for a few days about 36, but, after the 4th, it gradually increased to 47, till about the 17th, when it again declined to 45 during the day, and from 28 to 35 during the night. After the 25th, it continued to increase, and the month terminated with an average temperature of 19. The mean of the whole is exactly 5 degrees higher than that of March 1818. From the 1st to the 24th, there was scarcely any rain, and the showers that fell after that period were mo. derate. On the 18th, the barometer fell upwards of an inch in 24 hours, but the rain that followed did not amount to the tenth part of an inch. Leslie's hygrometer has in. dicated, as might be expected, a greater degree of dryness than last season and the relative humidity is 8 degrees less than during the month of February. The point of deposition, or the temperature at which the air would have been completely saturated, was sometimes as low as 12 of Fahrenheit. A more favourable seed time has scarcely ever been experienced in this country, and labour at this season is seldom so far advanced. The temperature of the ground, as indicated by spring water, is 2. degrecs warmer than during March last year, a difference that must sensibly affect vegetation.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

À MORE forward spring, whether with respect to the crops or the operations of hus. bandry, has seldom been witnessed. The wheats in England are in a remarkable state of forwardness; and should their future progress be in proportion, harvest might be finished in the southern parts of Britain a month 'earlier than usual. - The quantity of March dust which has flown has had its proverbial good effects. All the spring crops wear a luxuriant and promising appearance. The oats, beans, and pease, in the lowland districts, have been put into the ground under very favourable circumstances, and barley continues to be sown under every advantage. The growing wheat, particularly in Berwickshire and East Lothian, is luxuriant, almost beyond former precedent, and the new grasses have made considerable progress. Turnips are generally

, plenty ; but, from the forwardness of tire season, are rapidly running to seed. In the upper ward of Lanarkshire, many of the best fields and inclosures have been let in grass for the season at three guineas per acre, and some even so low as eight shillings. The lambing season has been very propitious, and there are a great many twins, but it has not yet commenced for Highland stock. Horses of every description brought high prices in the spring markets, and milch cows have been much in demand ; but fat cattle and sheep have rather declined in price. The prices of grain have varied but little, and continue nearly stationary. The orchards on the banks of the Clyde are very forward ; and should the temperature continue genial, promise to be very productive. - April 15.

We subjoin an abstract from an official return, by order of the House of Commons, of the value of all grain and flour imported into Great Britain for the last seven years, whick may, perhaps, be interesting to many of our readers. Value in 1812,
