AGRICULTURE. i i HARVEST operations have proceeded kub slowly in Essex during the past week, owing to continuous showers, which drove the labourers occasionally from the fields. A considerable breadth of wheat has, how- ever, been cut. Harvest operations have become general about Coningsby, Lincolnshire. The (ftops are a fair average. About Alford the crops are pretty good, but they have been sadly knooked about by rain and wind. Near Caistor the harvest will not be general for another week. The crops are very much laid. On the Southwolda the harvest has been greatly retarded by recent adverse weather. Harvest operations have become general in the neighbourhood of Stamford, a large number of Irish harvestmen having visited the loeality; the crops are generally good. Harvest opera- tions, although not yet general, have commenced in several places in the neighbourhood of Boston. The orops are much laid. About Whittlesey the wheats have ripened rapidly of late, but have suffered much from recent rains; the harvest has become general both on the high and the low lands.
