ceeding, which would render it unnecessary for the Commons to proceed further in the business. His Lordship at the same time stated, that he should, on Thursday the 6th, if no judicial proceeding should in the mean time be adopted by the Lords, submit a motion to the House of a distinct character, by which her Majesty, the House, and the Country, would be put in possession of the charges contained in the sealed bag. Mr Western expressed a wish to get rid of this business altogether, from a conviction that the House ought not to entertain charges which were at one moment represented as of a highly criminal nature, and the next as capable of negotiation with this view he moved as an a; mendment upon Lord Castlereagh's motion, that the King's message should be taken into consideration that day six months. After an animated debate, the amendment was negatived by a majority of
195 to 100.
Accordingly, on the 6th, the adjourned order of the day for taking into consideration the King's message was moved by
Lord Castlereagh, to be postponed till the 15th August. This motion was afterwards withdrawn, and his Lordship consented that the order should be discharged. The House of Commons will now, therefore, proceed upon the bill, or whatever other measure may come down to it from the House of Lords.
While these important discussions were going on, the Common Council and Livery of London, the inhabitants of Westminster, and the borough of Southwark, as well as several provincial cities and towns, have presented addresses of condolence and encouragement to the Queen.
On the 7th instant eleven men and one woman arrived at Dover from Calais, who were understood to have come over for the purpose of giving evidence against the Queen. They were, on landing, surrounded on the quay, and very roughly handled by the mob; from whom they were with difficulty rescued, and sent off to London. They have since been embarked for Holland, there to wait till the judicial investigation shall commence.

THE rain that fell between the 17th May and the 14th June amounted in depth to nearly five inches. The cloudy and moist weather which prevailed during that period was succeeded by dry weather with warm sunshine. On the 27th June the mercury in Fahrenheit's thermometer rose to 85° in the shade, but on the evening of the 4th July it fell as low as 41°, and in some of the higher districts it approached near to the freezing point. From the 4th the temperature became gradually more elevated, and on the 10th and 11th the mercury in the thermometer rose to 76° and 789; but there has been little or no rain for these four weeks past, and vegetation now begins to languish for moisture, of which many of the growing corns indicated superabundance at the date of our last report. Wheat, indeed, seems little in want of rain; it is for the most part quite luxuriant, shews a fine ear, and is at present in full flower, and till the flowering is past, washing rains for that species of grain is much to be dreaded. Oats, however, are much in want of rain, as they begin to come in the ear on a rather stinted stock. The appearance of barley is middling, and would improve by a shower. The turnip fields in particular have an arid appearance, the seed was later than usual in being committed to the soil, and the Black fly has been very destructive, in many instances occasioning a second sowing. On dry soils potatoe stems begin to spindle, and shew a premature disposition to come in flower. Beans and pease have improved considerably since our last report. The weather has been uncommonly favourable for hay making, and the crop is in general weighty; on poor clays or thin soils, however, it may be observed, that no sort of crop will reach a common average, wheat excepted, while on rich black loams every species of crop is luxuriant.-Pasture, and the second cutting of clover, would improve much by a shower. Cattle have met with rather a dull sale at the midsummer markets, and the sale of grain for these two weeks past has not been quite so brisk as in June. Farm servants have been engaged on the same terms as last year.
Water plants continue to come in flower about six days earlier than last season. Wheat came in the ear about five days later, perhaps from its lateness in being sown; in the progress of other plants there has not been any difference through the month, so that turning up to the last year's report will render a table in the present Number unnecessary. Perthshire, 12th July 1820.
