Missotmi.-— 1 o thn great 6tnplb of .wheat the weather has been Wghly favorable. t Such of it as surviv^ths inclemency of thp patt Winter presenta a most healty and promising ' appearance. Unfortunately in this immediate neighborhood (and we fear the remarks applies to the whole) tho Wheat ha? been Wintcr-kJlled ^J an unusual extent. Farmers here calculate upon not over half a drop; but if favored with good harvesting weather expect it to be of'a.very superior quality. Jill the crops, without exception, though back' , ward, are highly promising. , The meadows bear a richer burden than has been known for years here. The growth over tho Oat and Potatoe fields is-i-cry luxurient; and tho-yteld will bo abundant.
