AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The early part of the month was favourable for ploughing up the land for spring corn, and turnip fallows; some pease and beans were sown at that time. From the mildness and fairness of the weather, the flocks on the Downs did remark- ably well, and the season was not less favourable to those feeding on turnips, which lessened, con- iderahly, the consnmplion of hay-at this time 5 he VI'ti'T- wlieai,.( were growing too rapidly, and t;he turnii;s were running fast to green j but the I II frost, setting in about the middle of the month, put a total stop to vegetation, and gave a fine opportunity of running out manure on the meadow and wet lands, much of which work was done during its continuance; the frost setting in very severe, the sheep were quite shut of turnips; and those flocks which depend on that useful vegeta- ble for their winter support, have net since done so well. The early sown common turnips are very much rotted with the frost those farmers who have been fortunate in raising good crops of the Swedish kind, will therefore find them particu- larly useful the ensuing spring. The frost has meliorated the stroug clays, so as to make them work well for spring sowing, a business which the farmers in the Weald will be getting on wrth very fast, should the weather -continue, as at present, open, or otherwise favourable. The late frost has apparently destroyed the eggs de- posited so generally in strong filmy bags, on our hedges, in the vicinity of the sea; and, in exposed situations, it has also reached the destructive insect-tribe deposited in the ground. The great reduction in the price of Wheat effected in Mark- lane, by the immense importation of that article during the mouth, has not yet reached this part of the country, as wheat fetched, on Saturday last at Lewes market, from 241, to 2bl. 10s. per load Barley from 42s. to 43s. per quarter and Oats from 26s. to 31s. per quarter.- Butcher's meat, with the exception of mutton, nearly as per last, report; good wether mutton is some- what dearer.
