been done, especially in the more northern parts of the Illand. In places where the nature of the soils would admit, some farmers have began to fallow the turnip grounds for the next crop, and others are plowing the grounds from which the turnips have lately been eaten off, as a preparation for barley. The fields in general look green, and winter corn has for the most part a promising appearance, but this is not by any means the most dangerous month for them.

Grain. The markets for all sorts of grain are on the whole rather dull, but more para ticularly so for oats, beans, and pease.

The average price of wheat throughout England and Wales, was, on the 20th of January, Sis. 5d. and of barley, 28s. rod.

MEAT. Butchers meat continues to hold its price, or perhaps is rather on the rise.
Beef on the last market day fetched from 3s. to 4s. 2d. and mutton from 3s. 8d. to 45. 68.
Hops. These are also getting higher.

The prices of Kentish Hops vary between 705. and 1055. for bags, and 80s. to 12os. for pockets.

THE ENQUIRER will be resumed again in a month or two, as will the articles from the Peruvian Mercury. Communications of Biographical Anesdotes of persons recently deceased, are always acceptable.
