AGRICULTURAL REPORT. FROM the middle to the end of December, the weather continued cold, and rains were frequent. The mean temperature, for that period, did not exceed 36°, and the depth of rain amounted to 24 inches. The new year commenced with pleasant weather. The rains that have fallen since the 1st of the present month do not exceed two-tenths of an inch, and the mean temperature was about 41o. Frosts have been frequent, but of short continuance, and seldom so hard as to give any interruption to field labours; plowing is, therefore, now far advanced. A considerable breadth of clo. ver ley has been turned over, for oat-seed furrow, on light lands; on clay soils, it is thought rather early for that operation.
The progress of vegetation has of late been rather rapid for the season; immense lists of plants in flower appear in almost every newspaper ; but, in glancing over such lists, it is easy to observe, that most of the flowers mentioned are Autumn, and not Spring flowers. They therefore only afford a proof, that, hitherto, frosts have not been severe, but they offer no data whereby to judge of the actual progress of vegetation. It may, however, be mentioned as an anomaly, that the lateness of vegetation last season, and its earliness at present, are conspicuous in the green state of the arbutus-berries, (which usually assume a scarlet colour in December,) and the early springing of the snow-drop, which seldom appears before the end of January. Latesown wheats have had a favourable season, and look well, except in some instances in pease stubbles, where the slugs have made terrible depredations. Turnips are be. ginning to run, and a short continuance of the present weather will soon hurt their quality.
Prices of grain have improved considerably since our last, and at a period of the season, too, when the market is usually glutted. Wheat is in demand ; best new, from 28s. to 30s., in the northern markets. Barley is keenly sought after, and brings from 26s. to 275. per boll : seed oats also find ready buyers at about 20s. per boll. Pat cattle are rather scarce, and brings from 6s. 6d., to 7s. per stone, Dutch weight. Turnip-fed sheep are in request, and will pay something for their keep, besides the value of their droppings to the soil. The season has been favourable to the operation of planting forest-trees, and labourers are easily found at 1s. 2d. per short day of seven hours.
