The month of July has been warm and wet, the mean temperature being 4 degrees, and the quantity of rain three quarters of an inch greater than the same month last year. The heat during the first three days was moderate, but increased till the 6th. A heavy rain cooled the air for some days; but on the 13th the Thermometer again rose above 70, gradually increasing every day till the 17th, when it stood as high as 80%. A heavy rain again produced a reduction of temperature till the 24th. On that day the Thermometer rose to 76, and next day to 72. _The 26th was very wet ; and it rained more or less every day till the end of the month. The Barometer has been pretty steady, and generally above the average height ; and the Hygrometer also some degrees higher than July last year. The

point of deposition corresponds nearly to the mean minimum temperature; and the

mean of ten morning and evening differs from the mean of the maximum and minimum only about half a degree. The rain that fell early in the month proved very beneficial ta crops of every kind that of the latter part of the month has been very much the reverse.
