AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

D

The rain that fell between the 17th May and the 14th June amounted in depth to nearly five inches. The cloudy and moist weather which prevailed during that period was succeeded by dry weather with warm sunshine. On the 27th June the mercury in Fahrenheit's thermometer rose to 85° in the shade, but on the evening of the 4th July it fell as low as 41°, and in some of the higher districts it approached near to the freezing point. From the 4th the temperature became gradually more elevated, and on the 10th and Ilth the mercury in the thermometer rose to 76° and 78'; but there has been little or no rain for these four weeks past, and vegetation now begins to languish for moisture, of which many of the growing corns indicated superabundance at the date of our last report. Wheat, indeed, seems little in want of rain; it is for the most part quite luxuriant, shews a fine ear, and is at present in full flower, and till the flowering is past, washing rains for that species of grain is much to be dreaded. Oats, however, are much in want of rain, as they begin to come in the ear on a rather stinted stock. The appearance of barley is middling, and would improve by a shower. The turnip fields in particular have an arid appearance, the seed was later than usual in being committed to the soil, and the Black Ay has been very destructive, in many instances occasioning a second sowa ing. On dry soils potatoe stems begin to spindle, and shew a premature disposition to come in flower. Beans and pease have improved considerably since our last report

. The weather has been uncommonly favourable for hay making, and the crop is in general weighty ; on poor clays or thin soils, however, it may be observed, that no sort of crop will reach a common average, wheat excepted, while on rich black loams every species of crop is luxuriant. Pasture, and the second cutting of clover, would improve much by a shower. Cattle have met with rather a dull sale at the midsummer markets, and the sale of grain for these two weeks past has not been quite so brisk as iņ June. Farm seryants have been engaged on the same terms as last year.

Water plants continue to come in flower about six days earlier than last season. Wheat came in the ear about five days later, perhaps from its lateness in being sown ; in the progress of other plants there has not been any difference through the month, so that turning up to the last year's report will render a table in the present Number un. necessary.-Perthshire, 12th July 1820.
