Kept at Edinburgh, in the Observatory, Cultonhill.
NB.-The Observations are made twice every day, at nine o'clock forenoon and four o'clock after. noon-The second Observation, in the afternoon, in the first column, is taken by the Register Thermometer.
FROM the date of our last to the 25th of that month, the weather continued mild and open. On the evening of that day, a severe frost set in, which continued till the 2d of the present month. On the 3d and 4th, a heavy rain fell, amounting to something more than an inch and a half in depth, accompanied by a loud easterly wind. The ground being previously dry, and rendered open by the frost, the moisture was soon absorbed, and ploughs were at work by the 6th. The weather continued mild till the 12th, when a slight frost, with a general fall of snow, obstructed the farmer's labours in the field. The mean temperature, for the last ten days of December, was 39°. The mean for what is past of the present month is 36° Fahrenheit; and it may be proper to remark here, that the mean temperature for the whole of last season, by daily observation at 10 morning and evening, about ten miles east from Perth, and about 172 feet above the level of the sea, is 48 degrees Fahrenheit—a degree, or nearly two, higher than the average temperature of this climate; occasioned more by the mild temperature last winter, than by any elevation of temperature in the summer months. Though farm-labour has met with some slight interruption since our last, yet it is, upon the whole, as far advanced as could be wished. Turnips have hitherto suffered nothing from the frost, and wheat holds out well. The appearance of barn-yards indicate that a scarcity of fodder will still be felt; and complaints of the deficiency of oats and barley grown on dry lands, are frequent. Markets for farmproduce, however, continue dull. Meetings, to petition Parliament for Agricultural relief, have been held in this country; and, in the south, from the general tenor of these petitions, we anticipate little good; they are, for the most part, too much mixed up with state politics, to be at all palatable; and we believe no serious friend to the farmer, or to his country, would wish success to the petitioners at Norfolk, who have rendered themselves famous, by their attention to William Cobbet.
