has blown much more from the SE than usual. Wheat looks well, and, I think, all the operations of husbandry have been carried on without interruption.

In Flower.-China rose, laurustinus, common furze, pansey, yellow aconite, wall flower, christmas rose, stocks, hepaticas of different colours, polyanthus, auricula, primrose, gentianella, heaths, crocus, snow drops, pimpernel, dwarf rhododendron (rhododendron hirsutum), 'hellebore, and mespilus japonica. This month of January has been the mildest ever remembered, and certainly very favourable for gardening and planting. We have had some very heavy gales of wind, and several slight frosty nights, but nothing like snow storms, which are usual at this season of the year. The crops, particularly that of wheat, of the last autumn, have proved very productive in the northeastern part of the kingdom at least, and of a good quality.

In Flower.-Crocus, snowdrop, hepatica, aconite, violet, wall flower, heath, mezerion, anemone, stock, pansey, polyanthus, primrose, auricula, primula gentianella, dog tooth, violet, christmas rose, pimpernel, carnation. The month of February has this year been remarkable for its mildness. We have had no frost beyond occasional hoar frosts in the morning, and although there have been some violent gales of wind, and one or two heavy falls of rain; upon the whole, all the operations of husbandry and gardening have been carried on without interruption, and in the most favourable manner. At the same time, the frosty mornings have given a salutary check to vegetation, and prevented that premature expansion of leaves and flowers which too often ends in the ruin of our crops of fruit, particularly of apples and pears.

ARTICLE III.

An abstracted Statement of the Weather during the Twenty Years from 1772 to 1792, kept at the Imperial Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburgh; to which is added the Two Years 1818 and 1819; both copied from the Russian Yearly Calendar. By

Thermometrical Observations. The account is given in the scales of Reaumur and De Lisle. I have reduced the numbers to Fahrenheit's scale, and annexed them to the others.
