MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE copious fali:'of rain in the middle of this month have contiderably lestened the fears
which the drouelity weather, in the chose of the last, and beginning of the prefent, had excited. Crops, in general, continue to put on the most promising appearances.' Clovers, as well as other artificial grätics, and particularly those which have not been eaten in the Spring, look uncommonly well, and the pastures are extremely fresh, especially those fown down the last season. For fallows and fallow crops, the fcalon has also been unusually fine, and with active agriculturists, the potatoe reed time is nearly finished, and much of the turnip grounds prepared. Summer fallows have already been mostly twice ploughed over.
WHEAT, &c. in the midland countics, is rather lower.
Our reports of the fruit crops are likewise equally promising. In the cyder districts, there is, generally, a very favourable appearance, and in other counties the apple crops have seldom had a more plentifui atpect.
CATTLE. The price of cows in calf and lean Rock, have in some degree advanced. Eutchers meat is alto fomewhat higher than in our last report.
SHEEP. Iwes and lans, and indeed sheep of every kind, are getting considerably higher in price.
Wool is also on the rise. Beef felis in Smithfield Market from 38. 2d. to qs. 2d. per stone; mutton from 35. 4d. to 45.; pork, 25. 8d. to 3s. 84.
