As the procession entered the Hall, the fifes, drums, and trumpets proceeded to their gallery, and the several other persons composing it were directed to their respective places by the Officers of Arms; the Barons of the Cinque Ports with the Canopy remaining at the bottom of the steps.

THE severe drought of which we complained in our last was succeeded on the 20th of last month by a fall of rain amounting to nearly half an inch in depth : and since that period genial showers have been frequent. Turnips that had been sown in June, either gave a very partial braird, or did not come up at all till the 24th of July, when a fair and regular braird appeared. The operations of horse-hoeing and thinning are now going forward, but are fully a month later than usual, consequently a full crop cannot now be expected. The second cutting of clover has made little progress, and in many instances horses are fed on hay. Since the commencement of the rains, however, pastures afford a better bite, and vegetation in general has made considerable progress. In the early districts some hasting pease have been cut down, and wheat will be ready for the sickle within ten days. In the higher districts harvest will not be general before the second week in September. Wheat will turn out a better crop than could have been expected. Barley is for the most part late and irregular. Oats will not be a bulky crop. Beans and pease on retentive soils will yield an ample return. On dry shallow soils they will not reach an average crop; potatoes have improved considerably of late, and promise a full return. Flax has also improved since the rains. Towards the end of July prices of grain advanced a little, but from the improved appearance of the crops they begin to retrograde. Vegetation is just now twelve days later than at the same period any of the two preceding seasons.
