IMPORTANT TO FARMERS.—We have before us, the draft of a bill intended to be brought under the consideration of Parliament -in the forthcoming ses- sion, and which if passed into law, will make it im- perative, that every kind of corn, grain, pulse, seed,; meal, and flour, shall he sold by weight throughout the United Kingdom; and the weight so employed should be the pound avoirdupois, ascertained and established by a certain act passed in the fifth year of the reign of his late Majesty, King George the Fourth, entitled an act for ascertaining and establishing uniformity of weights and measures. The draft of the bill also coutaius provisions, that corn returns are to be made of the weight of nominal bushel a memorandum is to be given with the sale of all corn exceeding a cer- tain weight, to be decided upon by a committer-, and inspectors may call for the production of such a memo- randum, which must be produced under a penalty; inquisitions may be held by magistrates at quarter sessions, for ascertaining rents payable in grain or malt. &c. in England, under the oaths of twelve sub- stantial freeholders, and the sheriff's depute of each county may summon juries for the same object in Scotland Chester Courant. BIUSTOL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETy-A public meeting was held at Bristol on Thursday week, for the formation of an Agiicultural Society. A large portion, notjonly of the Agriculturists of the neighbour- ing counties, but of the most respectable merchants and professional gentlemen of Bristol, took an active part in the proceedings. After several very able addresses had been delivered an Association was formed, the Committee of which comprehends, besides the Mayor and the Dean of Bristol, several gentle- men of the first standing in agriculture, commerce and the learned professions. SCIENTIFIC INSTRUCTION IN MINING —A pro- ject is on foot for forming an Institution in Bristol, for the diffusion of instruction on this very important subject, on scientific principles. The value of such an Institution must be universally admitted and the great mineral district of Glamorgan, Slonmouth, and Brecon, the importance of it must be most strongly felt. Enormous sums have been sunk in fruiil-ess exertions, only from the want of knowledge of" the geological indications of mineral productions." INCENDIARism.-The crime of incendiarism ap- pears to be lamentably on the increase. Scarcely a provincial paper reaches town, in which some fresh instance of this«trrcious practice is not recorded.
