MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE copious falls of rain in the middle of this month have conliderably leffened the fears
which the droughty weather, in the close of she lait, and beginning of the present, had excited. Crops, in general, continue to put on the most promising appearances. Clovers, as well as other artificial grafies, and particularly those which have not been eaten in the Spring, look uncommonly well, and the paitures are extremely fresh, especially those Town down the laft season. For fallows and fallow crops, the seaton has also been unusually fine, and with active agriculturists, the potatoe seed time is nearly finished, and much of the turnip grounds prepared. Summer fallows have already been mostly twice ploughed over.
WHEAT, &c. in the midland counties, is rather lower.
Our reports of the fruit crops are likewise equally promising. In the cyder districts, there is, generally, a very favourable appearance, and in other counties the apple crops have feldom had a more plentifulafpcct.
CATTLE. The price of cows in calf and Ican stock, have in some degree advanced. Butchers meat is also somewhat higher than in our last report.
SHIEP. Ewes and lambs, and indeed sheep of every kind, are getting considerably higher in price. Wool is also on the file. Beef felis in Smithfield Market from 3s. 2d. to 45. 24, per stone; mutton from 35. 4d. to 45. ; pork, 25. 8d. to 3. 8d.
HOGs. There still continue low.
