AW.—The boll of wheat, beans, and pease, is about 4 per cent more than half a quarter, or 4 Winchester bushels; that of barley and oats nearly 6 Winchester bushels.
From the beginning of May till the 15th, it rained more or less almost every day, with s cold wind, generally from the east. After the 15th there fell no rain, except one-tenth of an inch on the 30th, the weather being in general clear and warm. The Thermometer rose twice as high as 71, and after the 12th never sunk below 42. The mean temperature is 4 degrees higher than the same month last year. The Barometer has of late been very high, and remarkably steady, owing partly to the east wind, which has prevailed generally during the month. The Hygrometer during the day has sometimes risen high, but the average is 5 degrees below that of May 1817. The mean point of deposition coincides exactly with the mean minimum temperature, and has done so almost every day during the month. On some occasions the temperature of the air has sunk a little below the point of deposition; but even in those cases the dews have seldom been very copious. The high temperature to which the ground has been raised, by a long tract of clear and powerful sunshine, has probably prevented the air in immediate contact with it from being cooled below the point of saturation.
