The quantity of rain failen this month is equal to 3.287 inches in depth.

The whole of the month, that is now past, has been uncommonly stormy for the season, the Barometer has been very variable; the average height of which is 29.464; but the sudden rise and fall of the mercury, of two or three tenths of an inch, have been frequent and in general followed by corresponding weather ; though, in some instances, our expectations, founded upon past observation and experience, have not been answered..

The temperature of this month is remarkably high, for although the Thermometer has been once eight degrees below the freezing point, yet its mean heighth is 44°839. For the same month in last year, it was only 33°, and for January 1802, it was not quite 3°. 4 In proportion to the warmth of this season of the year, we may expett rain; this month the temperature has been high, and the quantity of rain fallen has been proportionally large. The wind has blown chiefly from the S. W. the verdure of the fields, is uncommonly fine, and the early flowers are in full blow.
