THE METEOROLOGICAL REPORTS. A South Lincoln Farmer" throws out the following suggestion In The Times Sir,-The farmers are chiefly dependent upon the weather for the sowing of their crops and gathering them in good condition. To be prepared for the changes in our variable climate is therefore most need- ful. The predictions of the Meteorological Depart- ment a few hours previously are generally correct, and greater reliance ought to be placed on their reports, as is done by the shipping intereat. If they were sent by telegraph to each office before the rural postmen start out, and carried by them, at a small cost, to any person in each parish on their route, the greater part might know them within three hours, instead of 37 as now. Please use your powerful influence to induce the Post-office officials to grant this boon to our class, which would be the greatest they can confer.-I am, yours faithfully, A SOUTH LINCOLN FARMER.
