The quantity of rain that fell during the month of March is less than that of any one month for the last six years. In other respects there is nothing deserving particular notice. The mean temperature has been gradually, though slowly, increasing-the average for the month being one degree and a half higher than that of February, the same quantity less than that of March 1819, and nearly a degree higher than the mean of March for the last four years. The Thermometer, during the month, sunk eight times below the freezing point, and rose eleyen times above 50. The mean daily range is about half a degree greater than is usual for the season. The Barometer has not been so stationary as might have been expected during so long a tract of dry weather. The fluctuations were frequent, and sometimes of considerable extent, generally preceded or accompanied by gales of wind. The mean of the Hygrometer is above the usual average of the spring months, and the point of deposition is consequently below the mean minimum temperature. This is generally the case, indeed, during the months of March and April, owing, as has been often remarked, to the prevalence of dry cold winds from the north and northeast. The season altogether has been uncommonly favourable ; and though vegetation has not been so rapid as last year, there is reason to expect a much more abundant crop of all kinds of fruit. In this district the orchards were scarcely ever known to present a more promising appearance than they do now.
