IN -general the co n crops shew considerable bulk and promise, and the wheait has bloomo
*in all the southern districts at least, in more favourable \^xather than had been previous
experienced. But the wheats in many parts, particularly Hertfordshire, stand thin, and h*
a sickly appearance : farther, repeated blights have taken place from the prevalence of co
N. £. winds during the last two months; and burnt ears or brand are too plentiful 3 the co
sequence of which will inevitably be a considerable intermixture of smutty com. Ibis h
not been hitherto generally observed 5 but it is most true, since early blights in co^ n are by 1
means so visible as in fruit. Yet it often happens that a cro[/ may turn out smutty, at u
'same time considerable in product.

Harvest will be later than usual by three or four weeks ; a circumstance which may I
most unfortunate in the northern counties, should latter blight, or mildew, again prcvai'
last year ; in such case, we beg to remind formers of the use of cutting their com instanil;
although it may not be thoroughly ripe.

Fruit universally b,lighted, in some parts totally cut off. Pease have suffered a blight, batd
beans are most injured by it, being covered almost every where with its consequence, tJ
black fly. The late rains . have done infinite service in washing off this fly from cKe beans, a
clearing the corn of blights ; and cpmiiig with the winc^. in -a warm quarter, ihcyhave W

Hay, from bcin' late, cut very large in bulk, but in part dainaged by the lain. 1 he w

Gflunt Notegore is entitled to our warmest thanks, for his valuable commu"
locations , a part of which he will readily perceive that we have availed our'
selves oj] in t fie present number.

The communications oj W, Br' will he very favourably received.

A. B. Cs, plan is incuirnissible, as it would necessarily, from the very nature
<lfhis scheme, take up much more room than ivtiat it now aocs, and what can
conveniently, be allottedto that department, in our Magnrdne* . . .

The ** Epitaph in a Traveller,'' shall appear in our next. It came too
latefor the present number.

i\ B' wilt very highly oblige us by drawing the diagrams f whenever they
occur) on the smallest scale possible.

In answer to a gentleman who subscribes himself a ^* Constant reader of our
Magazine ;** and who wishes to be informed, wkether the '* Remarks on the
Pursuits of Literature,'* which, as it appeqrsjrom the ai^wers noticed to our
Correspondents, in the month ofFebtyiary last, weie offered by our learned and^
ingenious Correspondent, at Oxford, are entirely laid aside,' or whether they*
arc still lo he expected ; we lufve to reply that, at present, we are not enabled to
give a satisfactory anstver to this Enquirer, as we have not yet, betU fuvawed
with the Ms. in question.

1 fie very valuable communications ofJ[. C. shall appear in our next.

The papers which we have beenjavoured uilJi by Mentor, on the commer*
cialrelatiofis of this country, our intercourses with foreign nations, the advan^
iage, and disadvantage of trading coffipanies, &c. are under consideration^

Several of our obliging correspondent's productions, in Jrrose, and^ verse, are
received, to all qfwfiich due attention will be paid to their respective merits^

TUE fall of grea^ characters, or those
supposed to be great, has gene-
rally excited much curiosity, and with
it no small degree of calumny on the
fallen character. A remarkable in-
stance to the contrary, in tliesedays,
has been seen in the lutter respect, and
the subject of this sketch has iound nu-
meroiis advocates, not only to palliate
his Climes, but to endeavour, byvcvery
mcana in their power, to cover his pro-
secutors with disgrace . llie public
papers, with an exceptiop of one or
twro, have been devoted to his cause ;
and the language used by them has
been such, as to imply a total disregard
of national honour, and that it was in
their power to direct to any purpose the
feelings of the public. In every respect
their attempts were baffled, and the
benefit they have done to their noble
client is very problematical. "To
press a falling man too far," argues a
o3se and a depraved mind ; but to en-^
dcavour to prevent his Faults from lying
open to the law:^ — to aim at screening
hirn from justice — ^to overvvlielm with
calumnies those who are earnest for
the public cause — these are depravities
in the British press which we have been
compelled to notice, and which argue
a corruption of principles of the utmost
ilfilriraenf to the state.

This subject has not met with the
attention it deserves. That any man,
or set of men, should have such influ-
ence over the newspapers, is in the
highest degree imprgper ; and if it

prejudicial ; but If the writing ia favour
