Reviving Nature seems again to breathe,

As loosened from the cold embrace of death, FROM the 19th of January to the 18th of February, the wearber has for the most part con

tinued as before, unusually mild for the seafon. During this time we have had no snow, and very ! ttle frost. In funny days the bees have been seen flying about as if employed in colleding foud : in ihady places near their hives, however, several of them have been perfealy benumbed with the cold. I tried to recover two or three by taking them into the house, and placing them at a little distance from tre fire, but I did not succeed.

Qa the gift of January, which was an extremely warm day, two peacock butterflies (papilio in of Linozus) left their hiding places and were seen fying abroad. Some of the newspapers have remarked that there butterflies, the most beautiful of any that this country produces, have been observed in other parts of England.

la the curly part of the evening of this day, I was surprised by secing a but fit paft me in the air.

Several of the boufe flies have in some degree recovered from their torpid fate, and crawl about the windows. Their limbs however are tiff, and all their motions are performed with dišiculty.

February 1ft. China Rofes, are still in Power in the gardens. The first leaves of the Common Frverfew í Vatricaria parebenium) be in to appear. Crocuses, Anemones, and Laurustinus, (Vebancarinus) are in flower.

The red-breaft, skylark, blackbird, and ebrush, were all heard to fing on the first of February. In the middle of the fine days, the woods and fields resound with the notes of fong birds, as it the fpring was far advanced.

(a the éch of February, Fonquils (Narcifus Jonquilla) were in Aower; and the hyacinths Amd begun to push up their flowering items. The beautiful crimson styles of the male flowers of the baze were fully expanded, and the catkins had begun to open and shed their farina.

Red Archangel, (lamium purpureum), ivy-leaved Veronica, (veronica bederæfolia) and grees bellebore (belletorus veridis) are in flower.

Three or four Salmon have been caught in the course of the present month, and these of confiderable fize.

In the night of the 17th of February the wind changed from S. W.; the prevailing quarter for some weeks paft, to N. E. In consequence of this, we have a hard frost, which it is hoped will continue for a while, and put a temporary check to the vegetation. On the 18th we had a heavy gale of wind which lasted nearly the whole day.

The quantity of rain fallen during the last two months is equal to 3-1 inches. Besides the rain there has been a heavy fall of snow ; near the metropolis it was but trifling, but at a distance it was drifted very many feet; and several of the coaches on the porthern and east. ern road were actually dug out of it.

We have allo to notice a very remarkable high wind on the night between the 17th and -18th. It did almost incalculable mischief to our shipping between Dover and Margate, and was productive of much serious mischief in the Inland parts.

The average height of the thermometer for the whole month is nearly 370 ; of the batometer, it is 29.696. It has been higher and lower this month than we have witnetled for ome time.


Some Correspondents who have sent, and others who have promised, communications relative to Mr. Whitbread's Poor Bill, are informed that we shall give preference in our next to fuch papers as best illustrate the fulject by reference to facts. One of our correspondents, wishes us to invite information relative to the encreafing monopoly of Farms, and to those branches of manufacture which give employment to children only. 'l'hefe he calls fuurces of Poore MAKING, the continuance of which will render all other regulations nugatory.
