METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

a

THE weather during the last half of September and the first half of October has been unusually steady. The temperature, indeed, has been greatly reduced, but the dryness has increased. "The mean temperature of the last fourteen days of September was 521, and of the first sixteen days of October 42, being a difference of 95 degrees, but the quantity of moisture in a cubic inch of air during the first period was 0.002 grains, and during the second only 0.0014. The quantity of rain that fell during the former was 0.325, and during the latter 0.101. The barometer since the commencement of October has stood almost uniformly above 30. There is at present a fair prospect of our former remark being verified, that the dryness of the weather towards the close of the year will counterbalance the wetness of the preceding part of the season, so that the quantity of rain upon the whole may not far exceed the usual annual average.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

[ocr errors]

A CONTINUANCE of fine weather has enabled the farmers of all the earlier soils throughout Britain to complete their harvest, with few exceptions ; and to secure their crops in the very best order. Wheat yields well to measure, and the quality approaches to that of average years, though, in many instances, there is more than the usual proportion of inferior grain. Some spring sown wheats are still abroad in the Lothians, and much of this crop is not expected to be productive.-Barley appears to be a tolerably fair crop, but the quality is not very fine. In oats there is certainly a deficiency, at least in Scotland; large fields are still partially green in the northern counties, and, in many instances, the frosts in the early part of the present month have given them that peculiar tint between a healthy green and the yellow colour of ripeness, which denotes that their progress to maturity has been arrested. Even in the earlier districts we have seen, within these few days, a number of fields of oats, both reaped and growing, in which there is unripe grain in the proportion of a third or fourth of the whole. Beans and Peas are in general unproductive, and the former, in particular, have suffered greatly from the same frosts; the thermometer having been once so low as five degrees under the freezing point.-Prices of grain, both in this country, and on the continent, advanced a little during the three weeks preceding the present-in which they have declined again ; certainly not in consequence of severe edicts against monopolists, published by some Royal economists on the other side of the water, which can have no other effect than to diminish the supply of the markets, and hold up the corn-merchant to the unmerited odium of the people. -Cattle and Sheep have improved in value at the late great tryst at Falkirk, in this neighbourhood, there having been a considerable demand from the South. Butcher's meat remains much the same as it has been throughout the summer ; beef and mutton in Edinburgh market selling at from 4fd. to 6d. per lb. of 17} oz. avoirdupois. October 18

N. B.-WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.--The Linlithgow boll, which is to be understood in the following tables, when no particular measure is mentioned, is for wheat, beans, and poas, about two per cent. more than four bushels, or half an English quarter ; and for barley, and oats, something less than six Winchester bushels. But, though these are the standards of Scotland, the measure of every county varies a little from them; and even in the same county, two or more customary measures are found, ditferent from the standard, and from one another. The Stirlingshire measure, in the Glasgow table, s more than 8 per cent. above the Linlithgow wheat boll. The boli of oatmeal is 8 Dutch stones, or 140lb. avoirdupois, and the peck a sixteenth part, or 84 lb. avoirdupois; but the peck of potatoes, in Edin

urgh, ought to weigh 28 lb. The weight by which butcher meat is sold, is cominonly the Dute pound of 176 ounces, the stone containing 16 of these pounds, and being thus equal to 14 stone avoirdupois. Hay is sold by the stone, weighing from 22 (which is the weight in Edinburgh) to slus.; ma butter by the lb. of as many olmces.

VOL. I.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars. The demand for Muscovadoes, after the date of our last Report, became limited, and prices have since declined 2s. to 3s. There has to-day been evinced by the buyers a greater disposition to do business, but the sales were trifling. The refined market has likewise been heavy, with a similar fall of prices. The refiners, however, are rather withdrawing their goods in expectation of a rising market. In foreign sugars, there have been scarcely any transactions, and the quotations are therefore nominal. Coffee. The market has continued heavy; but there is a general confidence among holders, that prices will advance, and few sales have therefore been brought forward. The stock, in comparison with last year, is 2192 casks and 31,968 bags less; the prices were 20s. per cwt. higher. Cotton.—The cotton market has been exceedingly heavy; a considerable quantity of Bengals are held by speculators ; and, had offers been made for a large quantity, a very considerable decline would probably have been submitted to last week. The stock of every other description of cotton is so limited, that holders would not at present submit to any depression to facilitate sales. The im. ports of cotton last month into London, Liverpool, and Glasgow, were 22,237 bags. Rum.. There have been several extensive purchases ; on Saturday about 1200 pun. cheons Leewards were taken at from 2s. 8d. to 2s. 10d. The sales of Jamaica were more limited, and generally a shade lower. Indigo.—The sale at the India House, declared for the 14th instant, is trivial as to quantity ; the quality generally good and fine descriptions. The premium on parcels of the last India sale is 15d. to 18d. per lb. Spices. There are several inquiries after nutmegs. Pimento sold last week at 9 d. for good quality. Pepper a shade lower. Cocoa is in demand, and prices are rather improving. Tobacco.—There has been some inquiry after this article, but the demand is again subsiding; little variation in prices. The imports into London last month were—1591 hhds. Virginia ; 590 hhds. Maryland. The prices, compared with last year, are ld. to 2d. per lb. lower. Oils. The lowest quotation of Greenland is L. 46, and speculators are expecting much higher prices. Southern oils continue to advance. Linseed is slso a shade higher. In other descriptions no alteration.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.Hemp, Flax, and Tallow.— The prices, which had advanced a little, are again beginning to give way, the continuance of easterly winds being favour. able for Baltic arrivals. Foreign tallow is a shade lower ; but the town market was quoted last week at an advance of ls. 6d. There were considerable inquiries after hemp yesterday, but no alteration in price. Flax is rather heavy. Brandy and Geneva.In brandy there have been considerable transactions, at 8s. 9d. ; but the prices may be since stated at 2d. per gallon higher. Geneva remains without alteration.

British Manufactures.-Respecting our manufactures, the accounts which continue to be received from all quarters are still very flattering. In Norwich, the manufacture of bombazeens is so considerably increased, that hands cannot be found to execute the orders. The Manchester manufacturers have raised their workmen's wages 6d. on the piece. The trade in Yorkshire is very brisk in woollens and common cloth, particu. larly the latter ; all hands are now employed, and the cloth is principally for the Russian army.-October 7.
