The quantity of rain fallen during this month is very trifling, being equal only to c.60; of aa iach in depth.

The mean height of the barometer for the present month is equal to 30.045, which is higher than it has been any given month for a confiderable time. The greater part of the rain that we have had, fell during the storm which happened in this neighbourhood, about noon, on the loth instant.

The thermometer has averaged 63°. Some days have been very hot, and two or three nights were unusually cold. Between the 10th and 11th instant, the mercury stood as low as 37%. and early in the morning on the 11th, there was a smart white frost.

For several hours in the afternoon and evening of the 24th, we had successive lightnings and thunder, but accompanied with very little rain in and near the metropolis. In some parts of surrey and Hertfordshire, the storm was much more tremendous than was experienced in this neighbourhood. -
