YARR0W1E, May 24. When I last wrote things in general were at a very low ebb, and our farmers were looking gloomy in consequence of the continued dry weather, but now I am pleased to have to record an entire change in the state of affairs. A great deal nf wheat was sown in this district while the land was very dry, and farming operations were retarded very ranch in consequence. It is very fortunate, however, that alter a consider able area had thus been sown we were blessed with a splendid downpour ef rain, giving the wheat a splendid start. Most of it is already appearing above ground, and comparing this season with the last, when Bot more than half of the wheat came up, we have every reason to be thankful. To-day it has been raining steadily, and with the beautiful mild snnsbine we have bad, I can only say that it we tad the ordering of the elements it is doubtful whether a better effect could be produced. There are still a few fanners who have not quite finished their seeding ope...
