NotE.-Sun's gradients at first N. Easterly, then S. Easterly succeeded by S. Westerly about the beginning of July.

REMARKS. 1. The Table indicates

Probable Winds. Strong N. Easterly tendency from the 1st to the N. Wly. to N. Ely. in the N. 4th

Westerly » Easterly » , 28th. 4. General Forecast :1st to the 10th, Stormy: being period of Moon's Easterly tendency.

It would be noticed that the corresponding period of Moon's Easterly tendency for April (8th to the 15th) and May (5th to the 14th) were stormy. During this period the strongest gale will pro. bably occur on the 1st or 2nd, from the N.W. to the N.E., if pressure one or two days previously relatively high to the S.W., or, what is the same thing, if wind Westerly to North-Westerly, but if pressare relatively high to the North and East

then gale will probably blow from S.E. to N.E. 11th , 19th, Generally fine with occasional thunderstorm. 20th 27th, Changeable. 28th » 30th, Stormy. Moderate Westerly to North-Westerly

gale probable on 28th or 29th. 5. The gale predicted on the 6th of May blew from N.W to N.E. instead of from S.E. This was caused by pressure being previously relatively high to the South and West. It must be understood that the General Forecast is based upon an examination of past weather, and being necessarily im. perfect, I would deprecate attention being paid to it to the exclusion of the Table of Currents which is really the more important.
