MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The strong easterly winds and droughty weather in the beginning of the month retarded
the progress of vegetation very materially, and also threatened the farmer with danger to his early crops ; but the warm and copious rains which have since fallen, have completely removed his apprehension by inducing an unusual appearance of verdure and forwardness. The oats have every where been put into the ground, and barley also, except on very cold foils. The wheats have now got over the most dangerous season, without having received any serious injuries, and in general look favourably. Clover and other artificial gralles seem likewise to have escaped without much injury, and on the whole to put on a promising afpect. Some of our reporters observe, that more really useful agricultural business has been performed during the last three or four months, than has been done at the same season for, many years paít.
With regard to orchard fruits, our reports are also equally favourable. In many districts of South Wales, as well as in. Herefordshire and some other neighbouring counties, the orchards have the most promising appearance of plentiful crops, which must be particularly gratifying, as it is many years since there has been a good cyder crop.
Wheat and oats seem to be rising in price, especially the latter; but barley is much as usual.
WHEAT averages, throughout England and Wales, 51$ iod. per quarter; barley 28s. eid. oats 18s. iod.
CATTLE. Lean cattle are rapidly advancing in price, but fat stock seems to have fallen. considerably, at least in the northern parts of the kingdom. Our reporter fays, beef so much as 14d. or 2d. per lb. in the Edinburgh market. This fall, he however observes, is probably only temporary
SHEEP. Nearly the same as in our last report. Beef fetches in Smithfield market from 35. to 4s. 2d. and mutton from 3s. 6d. to 4s, per stone of $lb. linking the offal.
Hogs continue still low.
