HEREFORDSHIRE.

The result of a course of experiments has been laid before the Hereford Agricultural Society, by T. A. Knight, esq. from which it appears, that the strength of the juice of any cider-apple is in exact proportion to its weight. Thus the juices of the inferior apples are light when compared with the juices of the old and approved sorts. The forest stire outweighed every other, until it was put in competition with the new variety produced by Mr. Knight, from the Siberian Crab and the Lulham Pearmain, nor could another juice be found equal in weight to the latter.
