THE crop is now (with few exceptions) in the barn-yard, even in the most remote Highland districts. In the southern counties, and in early situations, the fields were clear by the 20th of last month. The weather still continuing dry, a considerable breadth of potatoe ground was cleared of the produce by the beginning of the present month, and now the most part of that useful root is secured for winter and spring use. Wheat turns out an excellent crop all over the country, and may, at least, be reckoned onefourth above a common average. Barley is less uniform. In the Lothians, that sort of grain is reckoned a fair crop, while, in most of the other corn districts, it is very deficient. Oats turn out better than was expected at the thrashing-mill, and produces a fine well-filled sample, yielding something more than meal for oats at the meal-mill, besides paying dues. Potatoes are deficient in quantity, but the quality is good. Turnips come forward slowly, and even young grass seems to indicate a want of moisture at the root. The sowing of wheat commenced, in late situations, about the middle of September. The greater part of that grain is now committed to the soil, except where it is intended to sow after potatoes. The seed-bed has been, for the most part, over dry, and does not give a braird so soon by four days as at the same period last season. The braird is, in general, fair, and, from the open state of the soil at seed-time, it is to be expected that the plants will be able to resist the effects of the rains that may fall in the winter months. Little stubble land has, as yet, been turned over by the plough, the ground being rather dry for that operation,-a círcumstance of rare occurrence in the middle of October. Farm produce of every description seems to be falling in price. Wheat, oats, and barley, i have declined considerably since our last, and cattle, as we then anticipated, have met with dull sales, and brought ruinously low prices at the autumn markets. The partial failure of the turnip crop may have prevented many from buying in the usual quantity of lean stock for the feeding byre; but this circumstance, of itself, is insufficient to account for the turn the cattle market has taken.-14th Oct.
The Aster amellus, which opened its blossoms last season on the 7th September, did not come in flower this season before the 18th. The temperature has, for the three past weeks, been considerably lower than in the corresponding weeks last year; and vegetation seems to be ten or twelve days later.
