The people of England are formally called upon to evince their patriotism by abătaining from the consumption of every article of French produce and manufacture, until å mere tid ral policy towards this country shall animate the government of France. French wines, French brandies, and every article of French produce and manufacture, ought to be placed under an interdict in every English family, from a sentiment of patriotism only. Our larsrius habits occasion us to be the best customers of France, and the law of retaliation, though beneath the dignity of the British government, ought to be practised by the people are time when all the property of a Frenchman would be confiscated for having in his possession a single yard of English broad cloth, we are taking from the French, in articles and wanted luxury, upwards of a million per annum!
where the want of an export to the Continent is much felt at this time. Our woollen manyfacturers, however, at Leeds, Halifax, &c. enjoy, at present, a brisk trade; and orders have been to considerable lately, that all hands are employed. In the West, the trade is not so brisk for fine clochs, except those for the London marker. However, there is no depression in the trade.
The outward bound Aleet for India (the pursers of which are already at Portsmouth) take out a considerable quantity of British manufactured goods of all descriptions, a continuance of which, at this present time, is much to be wished for, so as to give life to the towns of Birmingham, Manchester, Nottinghamn, &c. &c. and it is with pleasure we announce the arrival of very considerable orders for the West Indies, where all kind of European articles are wanted.
In the North of Ireland the linen manufactnres flourish in the greatest degree ; and withe in a few days 213,465 yards have been imported thence to London alone. The prices have advanced, particularly the coarser kind, from about 10d. to 18d. per yard ; the fines sort keeps steady; and the very fiue ones, upwards of 5s. per yard, not much demanded.

MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE crops of wheat, barley, and beans, since the commencement of the dry warm wea
ther, have recovered the check given them by the heavy rains which fell in the early part of the preceding month. Tares, clovers, and artificial grasses, are every where Alone rishing and luxuriant, yielding an heavy swath. The turnip fallows are in a state of great forwardness, and a large scope of land has been already sown with the Swedish sort The ave. rage price of Wheal throughout England and Wales, per quarter, is 749. 6d. ; of Barley, Pos. isd.; and of Oats, 283. 3d.
In the Fen districts, where the drainage has been incomplete, or the banks broken by the heavy rains which tell in the latter end of May, many thousand acres of oats are spoiled, and the wheat, beans, and barley, on the highlands, much injured in their growth, so that much of them will never exceed half a crop. Their mowing grounds, on the banks of the rivers, have been completely irundated, and the crops of grass totally spoiled. Fortunately, the high meadows and art ficial grasses, which are now mowing. yield heavy crops, and the extensive cow commons are in excellent condition, keeping large stocks. The usual fen operations of paring and burning, for coleseed, although impeded in the beginning by wet, have been renewed, and carried on with much activity.
In the midland counties the pastures are floarishing, and the meadows are nearly ready for the scythe, and will yoeld good crops. Round the metropolis the hay harvest is nearly finished. The crop is generally of goud quality, and has been rell got is; but the bulk is' mot se great as in some seasons. MONTHLY Mac. No. 158.
It is worthy of observation, that since the Middlesex hay farmers have discontinued the practice of making very large stacks, they seldom suffer from heating and firing. The stacks now made, rarely ever exceed eight or ten yards in length by 472, or six yards in breadth.
Little variation has been experienced in the prices of Lean Stock, at the recent Fairs, where Horses, Sheep, and Cattle, have been brought in plenty, and met with some buvers.-a Smithfield Market, Beef fetches from 43. 60. to 55. 4d. per stone of 8lb.; Mutton, from 4s. 6d.

REPORT OF THE PROGRESS AND DISCOVERIES IN THE SCIENCE
OF BOTANY, FOR JUNE, 1807.-(To be continued.) THE last month has afforded but little of novelty in this science. The usual periodical
publications, the Botanical Magazine, Botanist's Repository, Paradisus Londinensis, and English Botany, continue regularly ; but it is with regret that we observe that Erotic Botasy, from the same pen and pencil as the lastómentioned work, has been dormant for some montha past. This is the more to be lamented, as we were promised a continuation of the very inte resting plants discovered in Northern India, by Dr. Buchanan ; we trust, however, that the design is not laid aside.
The Botanical Magazine for June gives us drawings, and, more or less detailed, descriptions of the following plants:-Xylophylla latifolia, lantana annua, gesperia tomentosa, fuchraa lycioides scilla sibirica, narcissus orientalis (var s hlava), trillium erectuni (war â cloforas), colchicum variegatum. Dr. Sims remarks, that the genus xylophilla does not differ from phyllanthus, as the litter is at present constituted ; indeed Jussien, while he lias continued the erroneous designation of the former genus, which Linnzus adopted from Browne, expresses his doubes on the subject. As, however, the genus phyllanthus. is probably such more extensive even than is at present known, we think the Doctor has done right to costinue the name of xylophylla to this and the immediately related species, which perhaps the peculiarity of its inflorescence is sufficient to justify our considering as a distinct genes, and infarescentia crems ramulorum foliiformium might have been added to the generic character:: Both genera are said here to be more properly inserted in the class and order monęcia monadelphia, immediately after ricinus ; an arrangement possessi:g an advantage which oughe cer. tainly never to be lost siglit of, that of bringing plants of the same natural family nearer to gether, without encroaching on the rules of the system; forbendes ricinus, jatropha, and croton, here mentioned, herculia hippomane and hurd, are also of the same natural order, and occupy the same place in the Linnæan system.
Lantana annua, though known to Miller, is supposed to have been acyer bçfore figureda We owe our present possession of this plant to Lord Holland.
The next four plants in the above list are commented upon by Mr. Bellendenther, late Gawler, who seems to have undertaken to illustrate the Linnæin natural orders of ensaia coronaria, the plants of which having, many of them, been long cultivated in the gardens of Europe, and thus become crowded with varieties, and many others introduced of late fronitbe Cape of Good Hope, and hardly known to botanists but by the very inadequate descriptions of Thunberg, in his Orodromus, have been a sort of opprobrium to the science, no two 21chors agreeing to what genus the individual species should be referred, or in applying to thema the same name; a more acceptable office could therefore hardly have been undertaken. Of the first of these orders, so complete an account is no where to be mer with as in the Botanica! Magazine, and, by the same author, in the Annals of Botany. ' Scilla sibirica is here ceasi. dered as a variety of S. amæna, but of the propriety of this we entertain sume doubt: at the same time we applaud the caution which this author shews, not unnecessarily, to increase the aumber of species; and whilst we are indulged with descriptions and âgures o: (he most remarkable of these varieties, the science loses nothing if real species should now and then be enumerated as such, when we have appropriate names to call them by; but if ever varieties from any cause become permanent, that is, when similar plants are always predaced from seed, without any disposition in the offspring tu revert back to the form of the original parens, these become as nece-sary to be recorded, to form a complete history of the geous, as any other species.
In his account of colchicum variegalum, Mr. Ker has taken the opportunity of anbjoining á synoptical view of the species at present known. These are,
Montanum, Wild (berendera l uloocodium, Redonté).
