THE weather for the last fortnight of May, and down to the middle of the present month, has been cold and rather wet. On the 10th a thunder storm, with very frequent and loud reports, passed over this city and its vicinity, but without occasioning, so far as we have heard, any considerable damage to the buildings,-or to the crops, which are not yet sufficiently advanced to be lodged by the heavy falls of hail and rain with which it was accompanied.-The season is yet too early to allow of any approach to certainty in forming an estimate of the growing crops; but their appearance in Scotland, with the exception of dry and warm soils seeded with wheat crop 1815, is by no means very promising, either in regard to the abundance of the produce, or the period of its maturation. The oat-crops, in particular, if we might venture to hazard an opinion, must be both scanty and late.—All kinds of corn have risen since our last, and are still likely to rise, unless the season become more genial than it has been hitherto, at least until the earlier harvests of the Continent of Europe can come into the market. A considerable quantity of wheat, of inferior quality it is said, has been exported to France, and large shipments have been made from this country to Ireland for the last six months, so that the glut and depression, noticed in our last Number, have now passed away.-Butchers' meat here, and at Morpeth, may bring about 7s. per stone avoirdupois,-very good beef at Morpeth somewhat more. The lateness of the pastures, which have improved much within the last fortnight, has prevented any briskness in the demand for lean stock. In the Edinburgh market, oatmeal, the chief article of food among the poor in Scotland, sells at 4s. 8d. per stone of 174 lb. avoirdupois, the quartern loaf at 16d., and potatoes (old) st 16d. per peck of 28 lb.

THE Comparison between the first four months of 1817 and the corresponding months of 1816, as stated in our last Report, was considerably in favour of the present year. The reverse however is the case with the month of May, the mean temperature of which is at least 14 lower than that of May 1816. This diminution in the average is owing not so much to great depressions during particular nights, as to a general decrease in the temperature of almost every night. During May 1816, the Thermometer sunk repeatedly below the freezing point, which it has not'done during the present month; but it rose also considerably higher on particular days. The Rime, which has been more than once observed this month, must have been produced, either by evaporation, according to the old theory, or by radiation, according to the new theory of Dr Wills, for the temperature of the atmosphere was never so low as the freezing point.
