AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Tue labours of the husbandman have met with little or no interruption since our last

. The severe frosts in winter, followed by dry weather, and frequent nightly frosts in the spring montlis, rendered harrowing clay lands a more easy process than it has been for many years past. In the west country, and towards the Highlands, heavy falls of snow and sleet, about the beginuing of the present month, were rather unfavourable to the operations of seedtime, but even in the latest districts the cat seed is nearly in the ground, and in general the whole spring seeds have been got in under the most farourable circumstances. Near large towns early potatoes were planted in the field between the middle and end of March, and planting of late potatoes has already commenced in low lying, or early situations. On high grounds fallow wheat looks rather shy, but in general the appearance is flattering, and the good effect of the late passing showers is quite visible on wheat and clover fields. On humid soils sown grass has been partially thrown out by the spring frosts. On dry lands the plants stand thick, and have the earth settled to their roots by the roller. Turnips are over almost every where, and great numbers of half fed sheep are at present offered to the butcher at prices inferior to those at which they were purchased in autumn. The failure of the turnip crop has also reduced the profits which the farmer should derive from the feeding byre. The prices of grain too are rather declining. Potatoes for seed are in request, and bring higher prices than at any period since they were taken up. The rents obtained for

grass parks are somewhat less than last year ; parks of good pasture, however, go off readily, and lean stock are now in request.' Milch cows maintain high prices. Good draught horses have been rare in the spring markets, and what were offered to sale brought high prices. In orchards the appearance of blossom buds is promising, and should the weather prove favourable when they are expanded, a good crop of fruit may

Pears in particular offer a most abundant blossom.-April 12, 1820. Notwithstanding of the general indications of an early spring and favourable seedtime, vegetation is just now about six days later than at this period last season, as may appear by the following statement : 1820. 1819.
