AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE wheals, and spring crops of every description, look well, and are in want
of nothing but warm and seasonable weather, with genial showers. The spring sowing is in general finished, and the seed got in after the best possible manner; the lands working as kindly as has ever been known. The fallows are in excellent order.
The scarcity of cattle-food has been severely felt during this extreme cold and backward spring; and, unless a great change take place very soon, the relief from grass will be late indead. Accounts from the North, and from Scotland, are dis. tressing; the snow, in inany parts, lies deep upon the ground, and cattle-food 80* scarce, and the stocks of cattle so large, that the conseynences may be most serious. The northern farmers and graziers, who have taken farms at the late enormous replin
from four to seven and eight pounds per acre, must certainly be, under the present circumstances of the times, in a most critical situation.
Accounts continue extremely favourable of the thousand-headed cabbage, the seed of which is sold by Gibbs, Piccadilly. It has been of infinite service, where cul. tirated, during this distressing season; and, as it resists the frosts, will doublless succeed in the climate of Scotland. In Norfolk, it has produced heads of great weighis and a yart in diameter. It gives several crops.
All sorts of cattle and pigs are in great abundance, throughout the island; and keep being so scarce, the price is declining; but probably far stock may be scarce in the summer, from the backwardness of the grass. In some of the northern counties, lean stock are cheaper than has been known for years.
