THE HARVEST. Mr. Mechi, of Tiptree-hall, Kelvedon, has published the following letter, which he has received from an eminent and extensive Yorkshire farmer aud Mr. Mechi fears that his case might be multiplied very extensively :— "August 17. Dear Sir,—Last year I finished cutting corn on the 14th of August. To-day I have made a start for this year. Wheat Is much broken by a strong wind we had soon after it was sh, t, and from this day's experience I fear my own. and no doubt other crops in this neighborhood, wiil pr"ve very deficient. I have cut twelve acres white wijeat-my best pieca—it will not yield half as much as my best last ytar, sixty-eight bushels per acre. Barley will, I think, prove a fair crop, although the heads are short. 0 its and beans very bad. My mangolds were never such a failure; a regular plant, but too cold a summer. April and May sown swedea are a wonderful crop. 1 have cut, tied, stooked, and stubble raked the twelve acres for 51s. this is reducing harvesting to a min tnitm; reaper-back delivery. "J. J. Mechi, Esq."
