AGRICULTURAL REPORT. T TUF inte intervals of warm and seasonable weather, with the intervening genial

showers, have produced a favourable alteration upon the whears and spring

The cross harrowing and ploughing of fallows have succeeded well. In some pares the breaking of summer pastures lias commencer with tolerable promise.

prisingly; the spring grasses in particular have been much benefied.

The spring corn is generally sowni, and the young crops begin to look well and healthy. The accoun's from the north are no longer alarming.

With very few exceptions, every agricultural process is going on prosperously, and in the usual train. Early potatoes promise to plant finely, and if the season should be tolerably moist, it may possibly be a great potatoe year

Though all sorts of catile and pigs are in great plevty all over the country, the probability that fat stock would be scarce in the summer, from the backwariiness of the Spring, has somewhat declined in consequence of the late tavourable change of the Wtaller.

In the late scarcity of ca:tle food, experienced in the early part of the season, the thousand headed cabbage mentioned in the last report has been found to be of the urmost utiluy: happily this new plant is found to resist the severest climates. The late scarcity and dearth of hay and fodder, in general, is still felt in the vales, and prices of lean stock, the value of which is not yet recovered
