The month of February commenced with a pretty severe frost, which continued for a few days, in the course of which the Thermometer sunk lower than at any former period of the season. After the 4th the weather was generally open and frequently very mild, though the temperature during the night was often at, or a few degrees below the freezing point. Previous to the 16th, there was little rain; but betwixt that and the 21st, there were some heavy falls, which were always preceded by a change of wind. The mean temperature since January has declined upwards of a degree, but exceeds that of February 1818 by the same quantity. Spring water has not yet sunk so low as it did last yearcircumstance which affords some grounds for concluding, that unless the month of March be unusually cold and stormy, the present will be a more early spring than that of last year. Appearances indeed are already in favour of this conjecture, as well as of the theory of those philosophers who have predicted a progressive amelioration in our climate. By the end of the month gooseberry bushes had begun to unfold their leaves ; the wheat crop which had suffered from the heavy rains is rapidly recovering, and vegetation promises soon to be very vigorous. The temperature of the ground, three feet below the surface, was, on the 5th, 38.8, and by the 25th it had risen to 40. On the same days last year it was at 37.5 and 38.5. VOL. IV.
