AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The excessive drought which prevailed throughout the spring months has been fol. lowed by frequent and heavy rains. On the 17th and 18th May the quantity that fell amounted to something more than two inches, and since that period the weather has been uncommonly moist, with little sunshine. The temperature has been as high as might be expected, though frequently cooled near the earth's surface by the evaporation which succeeded every shower. The mercury in the thermometer since our last nas ranged between 520 and 61', by observations taken at nine in the morning, the mean temperature at that hour being 511° nearly.

The rains, in the first instance, brought on a luxuriance of vegetation, but the crops on retentive soils now indicate excess of moisture at the root. Wheat in general is a most luxuriant crop, and is in danger, from its weight and thickness, of being lodged. Oats for the most part plant thick, and stock freely. The late rains have completely destroyed the grub, so that now no danger is to be apprehended from that enemy; but on light, and also on tenacious soils, early sown oats have a yellowish appearance. Barley and flax look rather sickly, but these untavourable appearances woull soon be removed by warm sunshine. The heavy and washing rains liave fallen at a very unfortunate period for late varieties of apples, or fruit trees in late situations. Such rains, when the anther is discharging the pollen, are always more to be dreaded than even slight dry frost. Pears, being set before the ruins, will be an abundant crop.

The weather has been unfavourable for cleaning tällow and turnip grouuds. Potatoes come up slowly, and on wet lands are partially rotted. Hay promises to be a weiglitz crop, and pasture grass has improved considerably. In the price of cattle and grain there has been littic variation since our last.-10th June.

We noticed that vegetation was about six days iarther ndvanced on the 15th May than it had been at that period last season. Tlie trequent rains that have fallen since the middle of May have produced luxuriant foliage, and clongated the stems of plants, with0914 bringing them suddenly into flower, so that, by the ist of the present nionth, vegetation was in the same stage of progress as at the commencen.nt of June last year. 1819. 1820. 1819.

It may be remarked, too, that lofty ash trees were in leat this year on the 27th May, nearly two weeks earlier than last season ; this, com. pared with the relative progress of low growing plants, affords a proof that the air was more cold near the earth's surface, by the cortinued evaporation, than it was in the higher regions.--Perthshire, 10th June 1820.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.—The demand for Tallow continues limited; the late depres. sion in the prices does not facilitate sales.- Hemp is lower, and the purchases still limited.-In Flax there is no alteration.—May 30.

BRITISH MANUFACTURES.—It is with pleasure we copy the following paragraph, indicating a revival of our trade :-“ It is partieularly gratifying to be able to state, that the trade of this town continues in progressive improvement. Commercial men are gradually extending their business, and are daily getting fairer prospects and better spi. rits. Weavers for every kind of fine plain work are in considerable request. The wages of weaving are a little higher."--Glasgow Paper.

“ We fulfil a pleasing part of our duty to-day, in again noticing an improvement in the demand for British manufactures. The advices from Germany continue to an. nounce large sales at the different fairs; and the consequence is already felt at home in an advance of prices. At Manchester white goods have for some time been rising in value; and the houses who buy for money have found it necessary to give the advance as well as those who purchase on credit. This is an unequivocal indication of improvement, as in cases of partial revival rich houses are able to traffic with the needy without acceding to the enhancement which is unavoidable by others. In Glasgow and Paisley the demand has been good this spring; and the simultaneous orders from the West Indies, the United States, and the Continent of Europe, must have greatly lightened the home market."-Glasgow Chronicle.

“ We are happy to have it in our power to confirm the accounts given in former numbers of our paper concerning the revival of trade. Several manufacturing houses could employ many more weavers than they can find at the present prices. Calenders, print. fields, and bleachfields, are particularly throng, many of them working over hours. The proprietors and artisans are of course in better spirits. Dye-works are also considerably brisker, and the dyers of turkey-red in particular have as much work as they can over. take."--Glasgow Journal.
