[blocks in formation]

It may perhaps be necessary, for the satisfaction of our readers, to explain the manner in which the daily observations are registered in the table from which the following abstract is taken. The table contains 18 columns. In the 1st is entered the highest to which the Thermometer has risen,-and in the 2d, the lowest to which it has sunk, every 24 hours. The 3d contains the actual temperature 10 a. m., and the fourth at 10 p. m. In the 5th is entered the mean of the highest and lowest ; in the 6th the mean of 10 a. m. and 10 p. m. and in the 7th the mean of the 5th and 6th; i.e. the mean of 4 daily observations. The next 6 columns are occupied with the Barometer, the 8th containing the temperature of the Mercury, and the oth the pressure at 10 a. m.; the 10th and lìth containing the same for 10 p. m.; and the 12th and 13th the means of the preceding 4. The last 5 columns are allotted to the Hygrometer, the 14th containing the daily quantity of rain,-the 15th the quantity of evaporation for every 5 days, the 16th the state of Leslie's Hygrometer at 10 a. m.- the 17th the same 10 p. m.--and the 18th the mean of the preceding

On the opposite page of the table are columns for the force and direction of the winds, the moon's phases, and general remarks. The self-registering Thermometers are adjusted every morning at 10 o'clock, that is, the index in each is brought to the actual temperature at that time,-of course, the day is supposed to begin at 10 a. m. In the fol. lowing abstract is given the mean of each column as explained above, together with the extremes of the Thermometer, Barometer, and Hygrometer, during the period comprehended in the Report. An attempt was made to render the Table more complete by registering Lind's Anemometer, but the results were found so very unsatisfactory, that the attempt was abandoned. We hope to be able, at a future period, to present our readers with the results of observations on the Anemometer invented by Professor Leslie, the only

philosophical instrument of the kind that has hitherto been devised. In stating the number of fair and rainy days, every day is reckoned fair when the rain does not amount to one hundredth of an inch ; and in giving the greatest and least mean daily evaporation, it is to be understood as applicable to a period of five days, as the evaporating basin is examined only every fifth day. Of course, the method of measuring evaporation by a basin does not give the actual amount evaporated from a place exposed to the free action of the wind, but for comparing one month or one year with another, it appears both the simplest method and the best, if indeed not the only practicable one.
