The Season and the Crops. The "Chester Courant" states that the "6ne back end" for which everyone connected with agriculture has been hoping, and which some folk had "prophesied," has been pretty well in evidence of late. November opened fairly and characteristically. A bright, sunny and mitd day, with fog at night followed by sharp frost, were features which in the absence of rain are not unwelcome at this season, aud a continuance of which for a few weeks is to be heartily hoped for, to enable wheat sowing to be accomplished. A few froata at intervals have given time!y warning to root-growers, who have been busy during the past week in getting mangolds and swedes under cover, with the result that few now remain unprotected. A anish is also being made of potato-raising, and no further evidence is needed as to the quantative value of the crop in this county when we state that good, clean, sound tubers are selling freely re- tail in the Chester Market at 38. a hundred- weight, or a little over three pounds for a id, the quality being all that can be desired. So tar the pleasant autumn has lent quite a charm to the country-side, which is all glorious with the tints of the dying year and though a few primroses and other Sowers may be found lurk- ing here and there in quiet garden nooks, evidences are not wanting, particularly in the change of colour of some of the pastures, of the approach of winter. But though the grass is not quite so green as a few weeks since, when milder weather prevailed, there is still plenty of keep for stock of all kinds, and which, including dairy cattle, have found free run in the open during the daytime.
