AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

SINCE the date of our last Report, a very favourable change has taken place in the appearance of the crops ; and if the present fine weather continue for another month, we may calculate with certainty on the commencement of a very abundant harvest. The heat of the last fortnight of June, and the late mild showers, have not only given health and luxuriance to the plants, which before that period were feeble and stationary, but seem to have called a great many into existence almost instantaneously, and of an advanced growth, to occupy the spaces which, from the ravages of insects and other causes, were then vacant. The price of grain, particularly of wheat, has fallen considerably; and as the quality is so generally inferior as not to hold out much encouragement to reserve any large proportion of what remains to be worked up with the new crop, the probability is, that the market will continue to be abundantly supplied, from the anxiety of the hold. ers to get quit of it before better grain come into the market. Yet it ought to be remem. bered, that what one month of most propitious weather has done, another of an opposite character may in a great degree counteract ; and in our northern climate much must den pend upon the weather for three months to come. The harvest has already begun in the south of France, and in some other parts of the Continent, and from all quarters the Reports are favourable-Hay is generally a good crop, but the saving of it has been retard. ed, in this part of the island, by the closeness and humidity of the atmosphere for some days. Pastures have been very productive for several weeks, and the demand for stock has improved. The price of butcher's meat has varied little for the last month.-- There is now a good supply of early potatoes in the Edinburgh market, a larger quantity have ing been grown this season than usual. On the 8th instant, best oatmeal was still 4s. 8d. per stone of 174 lb. avoirdupois, the quartern loaf 15d., and potatoes 18d. per peck of 28 lb.

the greatest daily heat is only half a degree more ; and that the actual temperature at 10 a. m. is even lower this year than last. The Thermometer last year stood once at 73 and once at 72 during the month of June; this year it stood once at 76, once at 73, once at 72, once at 71, and once at 7010. During June 1817, the temperature rose 18 times to 60 and upwards; but during the same month 1816, it rose in the same way 22 times. From various other circumstances that might be stated, we suspect that the present year has appeared warmer, only because there has been more sunshine, which has of course produced an astonishing difference in the appearance of the crops. The moist state of the atmosphere too might perhaps prevent evaporation at night, to the same extent as prevailed last year, which would of course prevent also the same depression of temperature. This conjecture is confirmed by two facts. In the first place, the average height of the Hygrometer, at 10 p. m. for June last year, was 141-this year it is only 104 ; and in the second place, the difference between the mean temperatures of the two years is almost wholly owing to the difference between the temperatures of the nights.
