METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

THE remarks made in our last number on the month of June, are in many respects applicable to the month of July. In point of temperature, as weil as moisture, there is a striking similarity between July 1816 and July 1817, The mean height of the Thermometer, during the former, was 55.6, and during the latter 56 nearly-the quantity of rain in the first, 3.8 inches, in the last, 3.2. But the most striking fact in the Meteorological history of the two seasons, and what may perhaps surprise some of our readers, is the comparative quantities of rain that fell during the three months of May, June, and July, taken collectively. The quantity in 1816 amounted to 7.7 inches, but in 1817 it is 10.6.. It is at the same time an obvious fact, that vegetation has made much more rapid progress this season than it did last; but it is a fact for which it would perhaps be difficult to account, unless it be supposed that the unusually high temperature of the spring months raised the temperature of the ground so much as to influence the vegetation of the

succeed. ing months. This appears to us a very important point, and one which we apprehend might easily be determined by keeping a regular register of a Thermometer, sunk two or three feet below the surface of the ground.
