A bill has been brought into Parliament for raising and securing a fund for the relief of widows and children of burgh and parochial schoolmasters in Scotland.

By great and unwearied exertions, Mr. Johnes was able to effect a salvage, amounting to about 3,500l.: but the candid manner in which the British and Imperial Fire Offices had conducted themselves towards him, induced him to conceive that the benefit arising from that salvage should not be exclusively his own, and therefore he relinquished it entirely in their favour as they were such great sufferers as well as himself by the fatal occurrence. Mr. Johnes testified his sentiments on this occasion, by a letter, addressed to the Directors, in which he takes an opportunity of expressing in high terms his

VERY agricultural process is going on prosperously and in the usual train at this Although the late rains did an immensity of good to every crop upon the earth, yet the continuance of easterly winds, and a degree of drought since, have rendered warm showers desirable for the gross and latter-sown spring crops and the gardens. The shew for grass in the best meadows is extraordinary, and the bottoms very heavy. All the early-sown spring crops are bulky and of the utmost promise, as are the wheats. Spring wheats a greater breadth than ever, and most flourishing. Mustard, rape, coriander, all the seeds promise full crops. Early potatoes plant finely, and should the season be tolerably moist, we may nave another great potatoe year; the last, in some parts of the island, having been so abundant that the roots could scarcely be expended. All kinds of fruit full of the most healthy bloom; and the hop-bine strong and luxuriant. Some smart blights have happened from the easterly winds, and in one instance from the north-west, attended with cold rain; but they were not of consequence sufficient to discolour the corn, or to affect the hop-bine, in any considerable degree.

As has been happily the case for some years past, the cattle crops have a progressive annual increase in extent; and Swedish Curtips and the thousand-headed cabbage will be cultivated this year very largely, as is proved by the increased eiders for these articles

of the London seedsmen. A nonsensical nostrum has been propagated from Ireland, in the late Reports, of the virtue of brimstone sown with turnip seed, to destroy the eg of the fly. The publishers of such absurdities ought to be told, that those eggs do not exist until the weather has blighted the leaves of the plant; and that long before they were born, brimstone and many other things had been tried in the case, without the smallest effect. (See 5th edition New Farmer's Calendar.) Considerable damage may be apprehended this season in weeding the wheats, which are generally so large and luxuriant ; a very powerful motive for the drill, which however increasing in practice, is yet even unknown in many parts of the country. Disputes on the irksome subject of tithes, it is said, prevail to a considerable degree in different quarters: it is a grievance which imperiously demands the consideration of parliament.

Lean stock increasing in price, the fat stationary Remarkable number of twin lambs in the fall of this year. All the Merino flocks have had a good fall, and the lambs perfectly healthy.
