WEEKLY AGKICULTUKAL KEPORT. Thursday Evening. During the week several farmers in this district have sustained heavy losses by fire, in too many cases rightly attributed to incendiarism.

A. great deal of the golden drop crop seems to be affected with blight, which certain persons ascribe to the late frosts. Some of the oat crops averaged so low as eight bushels per acre, but there were patches of potato oats, particularly from land where wheat had been previously grown, which went as high as thirty bushels to the acre. At Newlyn the crop appearB better, for the wheat up to the present has averaged from twenty-five to thirty-five bushels per acre, and the oats from twenty to twenty-two bushels per acre.
