MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE humidity and

attendant mildness of the season, have retarded the preparation for lowing and setting Field Beans on strong foils, operations on which usually have at this time been in great forwardness. On light foils, preparations have been made for lowing Barley, and a great breadth of lay ground has been already broken up for Oats. The Wheats, Rye, and winter Tares ftill continue to look well, and the Artificial Graffes are very flourishing, and promise early feed for Ewes and Lambs. Wheat averages, throughout England and Wales, 753. 8d. ; Barley, 375. 11d; and Oats, 26s. 4d.

Fiven the Fens, immense droves of coleseed sed sheep have been recently sent to Smithfield in high condition. But from the prevailing warmth and wetness, coleseed is found to grow too fit, and the remainder of the feeding stuck, which is still conliderable, do not do so well.

The same observation holds good, in respect to Turnips—a crop which has been this winter universally good, and abundant.

The practice of stall-feeding beasts on oil-cake, ground corn, turnips, &c. being now general, scarcely a well managed farm is without a tew, and it occafions a great stock of fat cat. tle, in the country, which has considerably reduced the prices of fat meat. Notwithstanding the large supplies wanted by government and merchant ihipping, Cows and Calves are more reasonable.

Little bufiness has been lately. done, in the horse markets. Some few Fen-bred cart Colts have been fold at very high prices.

The demand for Porking Pigs still continues great In Smithfield, Beef fetches from 4s. 62. to 55. 34. ; Mutton, from 4s. 5d. to 55. ; and Pork, from 5s. 6d. to 6s. 6d.

MONTHLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. IT appears, that in the year 1805, 467 thips, 52,997 tons burthen, and 3514 men were

employed in the Newfoundland Fitheries ; and in the year 1806, 577 ships, 64,667 tons burthen, and 4,336 men, making an increase of 110 thips, 11,670 tons, and 322 men, in this trade alone.

There passed the Sound, during the course of the year 1806, 7140 vessels ; that is to fay, 5535 from the North Sea to the Baltic; and 3605 from the Baltic to the Sea. Ofthele wert,

NATURALIST'S MONTHLY REPORT.

Reviving Nature seems again to breathe,

As loosened from the cold embrace of death, FROM the 19th of January to the 18th of February, the weather has for the most part con

tinued as before, unusually mild for the seafon. During this time we have had no snow, and very ! ule frost. In funny days the bees have been seen flying about as if employed in colleding foud : in ihady places near their hives, however, several of them have been perfeady benumbed with the cold. I tried to recover two or three by taking them into the house, and placing them at a little distance from trze fire, but I did not fucceed.

Qa the gift of January, which was an extremely warm day, two peacock butterflies (papilio ins of Linnzus) left their hiding places and were seen Aying abroad. Some of the newipapers have remarked that thete butterflies, the most beautiful of any that this country produces, have been observed in other parts of England.

In the curly part of the evening of this day, I was surprised by seeing a but fit paft me in the air.

Several of the bouse flies have in some degree recovered from their torpid Aate, and crawl about the windows. Their limbs however are fiff, and all their motions are performed with

February 1A. China Roses, are fill in flower in the gardens. The first leaves of the Commer Frver few (Matricaria paribenium) be, in to appear. Crocuses, Anemones, and Louruftinus, (Vburras tinus) are in flower. The red-treaft, skylark, blockbird, and tbrush, were all heard to fing on the first of February. In the middle of the fine days, the woods and fields resound with the nores of song birds, as ir the fpring was far advanced.

On the oth of February, Jonquils (Narcissus Fonquilla) were in flower; and the hyacinths kad begun to puth up their flowering Atems. The beautiful crimson styles of the male Aowers of the buzul were fully expanded, and the catkins had begun to open and thed their farina.

At thte fcalon of the year the bedge, snails (belix arbufforem of Linnæus) are found collected in woliderable numbers about the roocs of trecs, in holes of such as arc decayed, and the thel.

February the 17th. The Hedge-Sparrow, and Greater Titmoufe fing. Rocks begin to pair; and make preparation for building their nefts.

Red Archangel, (lamium purpureum), ivy-leaved Veronica, (veronica bederæfolia) and grecs bellebore (belletorus veridis) are in flower.

Three or four Salmon have been caught in the course of the present month, and these of confiderable fize.

In the night of the 17th of February the wind changed from S. W.; the prevailing quarter for some weeks paft, to N. E. In consequence of this, we have a hard froft, which it is hoped will continue for a while, and put a temporary check to the vegetation. On the 18th we had a heavy gale of wind which lasted nearly the whole day.

The quantity of rain fallen during the last two months is equal to 3.1 inches. Besides the rain there has been a heavy fall of snow ; near the metropolis it was but triling, but at a distance it was drifted very many feet, and several of the coaches on the northern and east. ern road were actually dug out of it.

We have allo to notice a very remarkable high wind on the night between the 17th and -18th. It did almost incalculable mischief to our shipping between Dover and Margate, and was productive of much serious mischief in the Inland parts.

The average height of the thermometer for the whole month is nearly 370 ; of the ba. tometer, it is. 29-696. It has been higher and lower this month than we have witnefled for ome time.

TO CORRESPONDENTS.
