NorwiTHSTANDING the easterly winds, accompanied by showers of hail and snow, in the latter end of May, the crops in general appear to have suffered little. The succulent plants, such as clover and potatoes, have in some places, however, been consi. derably injured ; but in the orchards in the Carse of Gowrie, and on the banks of the Clyde, the fruits having been mostly set before the frosts came on, the injury to the expected crop is not so great as was contemplated. Wheat still continues to promise a luxuriant crop, and many helds are now in ear. Oats everywhere have a flattering appearance ; and barley, except on heavy soils, and sown when the ground was wet, ges nerally looks well. Beans and pease appear in very desirable condition. The weather has been favourable for turning over fallow grounds; and a great breadth of turnip has already been sown. The genial showers since the commencement of this month (and it is hoped the frosts are over for a season) will enable the hay crop to reach a fair average. Grain still continues to find a dull market. Fat cattle meet with a ready sale ; and young cattle for grass bring high prices.-- June 14.

The Cardamine pratensis and the Montia fontana, both aquatic plants, came in flower on the 15th May ; apple-trees in orchards, and the lilac in shrubberies, were in full Power by the 16th. The various leaved water crow-foot was in flower by the 17th, the lily of the valley by the 19th, the laburnum trec by the 21st; walnut and oak trees were in leaf by the 24th*; the Cerastium tomentosa and hautboy, and Chili strawberries, were in flower by the 28th ; the hawthorn came in flower on the 1st June; the Veronica beccabunga, (brooklime,) a water plant, on the 2d, the common peouy on the 6th, water-cresses and the Stellaria uliginosa by the 8th ; old ash trees were in full leat by the 9th ; and, on the 12th, the common rye-grass (Lolium perenne) began to open its flowers.

The temperature of the water in the pond where the water plants grow, on which the above observations were made, ranged between 48o and 539 Fahrenheit, from the 11the May to the 12th June.
