AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The effects of long-protracted drought begin to be severely felt by the crops. There has not been a single drop of rain since the date of our last, and at that period the soil was unusually dry. The mean temperature for the last ten days in May was 55°, but here we must correct a typographical error in our last report, where 57° is marked in place of 51° as the mean temperature in the early part of May. The temperature for the last two weeks was something more than 57°, and had the soil not been so very dry, vegetation would have made considerable progress. As it is, the prospect of a luxuriant crop is no way flattering. On rich retensive soils, wheat looks well, and will soon shew the ear. On light lands it comes in the ear on a slender stack, with sickly foliage. It is now too evident that wheat will not be a bulky crop. Oats are much stinted in growth. Barley has come up irregularly, and where late sown, on stubborn soils, it has not yet appeared at all. Both these species of grain would improve much by rain. Beans on stiff soils shew a short and puny plant. Pease are also much in want of rain. Pastures are ex. ceeding bare, and hay will be a light crop. Potatoes shew the rows, and from the present dry state of the soil, a kindly mould would be produced by rains before horsehoeing. Few turnips are as yet sown, but the ground is for the most part ready for receiving the seed. The dry weather is favourable for cleaning fallow lands, but to reduce clay fallows to anything like a small mould is at present impracticable. There has been little alteration in the corn-market these six weeks past. Oats are still in request, and prices are looking up ; in other species of grain, prices are nearly stationary. The scanty pasture has rendered the sale of cattle extremely dull. Horses are still in request, and prices have not declined.
