A winter rather mild, though wet, and marked by the long prevalence of strong gales from the west, has been succeeded by an early spring, and of late, by very favourable weather for committing the seeds to the ground. The spring crops will therefore probably occupy the usual space; but there is every reason to suspect that a much less extent of wheat than usual was sown in autumn, and that only upon the driest soils could there be any considerable addition made to it since. The grounds sown with the wheat of last season are in several instances unpromising. Live stock of all kinds have passed the winter well. The weather has been propitious to the early lambs.-The corn markets have fluctuated little for some weeks, excepting in the article of inferior wheat, which at present is hardly saleable: and if the supply of foreign wheat be as liberal as it is expected to be, a large portion of what remains of the last year's crop of British wheat is not likely to be in demand at any price. Perhaps oats are the only species of grain on which some farther advance may be expected, the stock of this grain in the high lands, and that of potatoes, which in many places are used as a substitute, generally, being now nearly consumed. Premiums have been offered by the Highland Society of Scotland, and by the Irish Societies, for encouraging the culture of early potatoes, which it is to be hoped may alleviate the pressure of scarcity and dearth during the summer.-The late markets for horses, cattle, and sheep, indicate an improvement in the demand; sheep, in particular, have advanced considerably in this part of the island.-Upon the whole, the prospects of all those farmers whose chief dependence is not placed upon a wheat crop, which was in by far the greater number of instances ruinously deficient last harvest, both in quantity and quality, may be said to be much better than at the corresponding period last year.
