AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

SINCE the date of our last, the weather has continued extremely dry, a few passing showers have only raised the water in the rain gage one-fifth part of an inch, and even this supply was partial. The nights have been cold; the thermometer often falling to 400, and once to 340: some potatoe foliage on mossy soils has, in consequence, been blast. ed. The growing corns every where have a languid appearance, and notwithstanding the extreme drought, vegetation is ten days later than at this period last season. Wheat has come in the ear on a stem which has a yellow, and almost ripe colour.

On some soils in high order, and of a retentive nature, the appearance is more favourable, but in general this species of grain will not reach a common average. Oats on light soils are extremely short, and shew a light ear. Barley on tenacious soils has come up very partially, and begins to run to seed on a feeble stem. Culmiferous crops of every descrip. tion will have little bulk in straw, and hay is not half an average crop. Beans and pease hold out better on carse lands; on black land they are much in want of rain. Potatoes are later than usual, and the stems make very slow progress. Turnips were all sown in June, but in a majority of instances no braird has been obtained ; on very fine lands that gave a partial braird, the plants make better progress. Pasture is parched up, and cattle are falling off in flesh, and have declined in price from 30 to 40 per cent. Hay has advanced in price to double the sum at which it was sold last summer, in consequence of the deficient weight, and anticipation of a scarcity of fodder.

Grain has sold rather brisker of late, and prices have advanced a tride. Horses sell at low prices, and sheep meet with a dull sale, at prices very much reduced. Farm servants have been engaged for next season on nearly the came terms as last; in some instances there has been a little rise; labourers are now more in request than last month, in consequence of the hay harvest. Cleaning potatoe ground, &c. men receive from Is. Gl. to Is. 88. women and boys about 8d. per day. The weather has been favourable for working fallow ground, at which farmers are now employed.
