Quantity ol rain from tlie 26th of August to the 25th of September, one inch -JgV

The general character of the weather in this interval lias been as favorable for the harvest as in the preceding; and, though a greater quantity of rain has fallen, it has not been in a degree to impede the farmer in thi9 important operation. The raivge-of the mercury ban been remarkably great, from 292 on the morning of the 6th, when the heaviest fall of rain that had happened for many weeks occurred, to SO3. This great and rapid fall of the mercury in the ban.meter, was preceded, on the 4th, by sudden stormy gusts of wind from the S.W. The degree of temperature has been sometimes below the usual standard of the season; on the 8th the thermometer was down to 45 at sis in the morning, and probably, in some situations exposed from N.W. which was then blowing, to a strong wind some degrees lower.

Cholera seems entirely to have vanished in this interval, and a tendency to catarrhal affections, and rheumatism, to have arisen. Rubeola still' is frequent among children.
