AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE most sanguine expectation relative to the approaching harvest will scarcely

fall short of reality. Every where, excepting in very few districts, where the corn has been laid by the late storms, and this mostly in the north of England, the produce will be abundant. Owing, probably to this cause, a late fall in the price of grain took place, and the consequent partial fall of bread, which is a circumstance rather unusual jast before harvest. The late fair weather has considerably mended the appearance of

crops in general, but hay continues high, and the second crops are not likely to repay the unusual scantiness of the first.
