I in the present month. The cold and wet weather, which seems happily to have ended with the 20th of this month, increased the bulk of vegetation, but without proportionally accelerating the fructifying process. With a continuance of the present summer weather, the wheats may be expected to blossom successfully—a circumstance of great consequence towards an abundant crop. Complaints are still made of much of the wheat being too thin upon the land ; but it has occasionally happened, that such crops, thin of straw, have been thickest of grain All the spring crops are of good report, ex. cepting that precarious article, the pea. The Middlesex bay-harvest is at its beight, and the weather at present fine ; and should the season continue warm, grass, in the more backward counties, will be abundant. The turnip culture proceeds successfully, and a

large breadth of Swedes will be sown. The cattle cabbage culture, also, has revived of late years. Hops appear strong and luxuriant. Cattle and milch cows have sold well throughout. The breed of pigs has greatly decreased in England, the county of Essex excepted; imports from Ireland increasing. Good horses command almost any price which can be asked.

12 During the first fifteen days, the weather was mostly fine, warm, and dry; the fall of rain amounting only to two tepths of an inch. But during the last sixteen days, (with the exception of the 21st, 220, 230, and 24th, which were chiefly clear and very warm,) it was cloudy and cold, with frequent and heavy falls of rain, accompanied at intervals with gales of wind from the W. and S.W. On the 16th, 18th, 25th, and 27th, there fell half an inch of rain on each day. Much rain also fell on the 29th, in short heavy showers; one of which, about 11 a.m. was accompanied with distant thunder. A shower of hail fell in the afternoon.

A moderate degree of temperature for the most part prevailed; the thermometer gene. rally standing between 60° and 650 in the day, and between 40° and 45° in the night. At all times, however, it was rather fluctuating. On the 3d, 4th, and 5th, it was below temperate (55°), and in the nights of the 4th and 5th, fell to 334° and 361°. On the 22d, 23d, and 24th, it exceeded 70°; but on the 25th, a reduction of 14° took place, and it continued very low during the remainder of the period.

THE return of the QUEEN from Italy

l on the 6th of the month, has ex. cited greater interest through the nation than any event for many years.

On the afternoon of her arrival, the following message was delivered to both Houses of Parliament:

« GEORGE Rex, “ The King thinks it necessary, in consequence of the arrival of the Queen, to communicate to the House of Lords, certain papers respecting the conduct of her Majesty since her departure from this country, which he recommends to the particular and earnest attention of the House. The King felt an anxious desire to prevent all disclosures and discussions which must necessarily prove

painful to his feelings ; but the step adopted by the Queen leaves him no alternative. The King has the fullest confidence that the House of Lords will adopt that course of proceeding which becomes the justice of the case, and is due to the honour and dignity of the Crown."

On the Thursday following the committee was nominated in the House of Lords, but her Majesty transmitted the following communication :

“ The Queen thinks it necessary to inform the House of Commons, that she has been induced to return to England in consequence of the measures pursued against her honour and her peace for some time by secret agents abroad, and lately sanctioned by the conduct
