It is an old Baying that 'one swallow does not make a summer,' and it is equally true that one downpour does not make a winter. Still the magnificent fall of rain which hasj UBbered in the month of April is sufficient to raise hopes that a good winter is in store for us, and it will at ail events be a great boon to thoBe engaged alike in pastoral or agricultural pureuite.
