THE COUNTRY POST. Macquarie Plains. Although the growing crops in gcueinl have bad afine appearance to the eye, there is found dow when closely examined to be a more than usual admixture of weeds, especially of of drake or ryt-grass, as it is called. .It is owing in my opinion to the last season having been so dry that the seeds of the weeds did not vegetate, mid tho^e that did come up shed an unusual quantity of seed, not being impeded by the corn, so that the pre- sent season being wet in the extreme, a double crop of weeds has sprung up, nt the same timo íhat it gives the corn a most Itixuiiant appearance, though now easily distinguished. The wheat may be seen running up nnd leaving the surface thinly stocked, especially on wet lands. For owing to the water flowing from the hills down upon the cullivrtUd lands and tl.tre being seldom any ditches made round the field to carry oil'the water, together with'the land springs which abound in this wet season, the sur- face has been cons...
