AGRICULTURAL REPORT. WITH the exception of a heavy fall of rain on the 22d February, the weather has been dry since our last. Easterly winds have been frequent, and the Thermometer has ranged between 27o and 45° Fahrenheit at nine in the morning. The sowing of spring wheat and beans has met with little interruption. The sowing of beans commenced about the 18th in the lower districts, and that operation is now nearly over. The soil is in excellent condition for receiving the oat seed, on a dry bed, but little of that grain has hitherto been committed to the soil. On light lands the sowing of oats will be delayed for some weeks for the sake of the straw, which is always short when sown early. Young wheat has not made much progress since our last; on fallow grounds in exposed situations the plants have suffered a little by the spring frosts; in general, however, the appearance is still flattering, and early sown wheat is exactly in that state of forwardness which promises & vigorous growth in the summer months. The coronal noots, which afford nourishment to the plants till they arrive at maturity, are just beginning to form. It will be recollected that this process was over last season early in winter, and the roots were considerably exhausted by the action of the weather in the spring months, hence the yellow sickly appearance which wheat fields presented in June last.

Clover plants in many instances have suffered partially by the frosts ; on dry firm land they are still safe.' White turnips are entirely over. The yellow variety and the Ruta baga has for some time been the only resource, and it is acknowledged on all hands, that little profit will be realized this season by the feeders of sheep or cattle.

The Spring markets have been well supplied with draught horses, which sold at high prices. Grain of every description has advanced in price from 2s. to 4s. per boll since the middle of last month, which gives a slight stimulus to the languishing hopes and expiring energies of the farmer.- March 14.

The Snow drop was in flower on the 16th February, exactly a month later than it came in flower last season, and tulips planted in October appeared above ground on the 23d. It may be remarked, that all bulbous-rooted plants are a month or five weeks later than at this period last season, while aquatic and such herbaceous plants as have their roots near the surface, are only about five or six days later. The following table will show the state of forwardness in both seasons, and the difference of their time of flowering: 1819. March 4. Ranunculus hederaceus, an aquatic, 1820. March 10. 6.

COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars. There has been a steady and increasing demand for Muscovades this week, and, although little variation in the prices can be stated, yet the general appearance of the market is much more favourable for an improvement of the trade. In refined sugars, the sales have been limited, and the market is stated ra. ther heavy. Molasses have been in steady request. Foreign sugars go off freely at improving prices. Coffee.—The coffee market has considerably improved, both in the demand and in the prices; the request commenced ou Tuesday last, since which considerable purchases have been made, St Domingo 118s. 6d. The demand by the grocers, for the home consumption of the country, has been considerable ; they have taken ordinary and good ordinary Jamaica, the latter 116s. a 1175. The public sale of Wednesday went off with great briskness, generally 2s. a 3s. higher than by private contract. Cotton.The cotton market continues heavy, and the India Company having declared a further quantity for sale on the 17th instant, has added to the general stagnation of the trade. The purchases last week consist of 300 Pernambucos, 16.d. good, duty paid ; 100 Boweds, 113d. good, in bond ; 100 Surats, 6 d. a 7 d.; 500 Bengals, 6d. a 6 d.

Oils. The prices of oils are improve ing, on account of the short supply.

EUROPEAN Produce.- Tallow.--Foreign tallows continue in general and extensive demand.
