Brisk winds 2-Boisterous ones 1. This has been an uncommonly wet month; indeed, during the reporter's uvioterrupted ob. servalions for the last six years and four mouths, he has not registered nearly so much rain as what has fallen in the preseut period. The greatest quantity for the month of May for the six year's was in 1811, viz: 5,075 iuches; and the greatest quantity for any one month was iu Sepiember, 1807, the fall was 6,255 inches. The full of raiu in the present mooth is 7,140 inches; from tbe 7th to the 26th rain fell either less or more every day.-- Out of the 31 days, 22 may bé denominated wet, s brilliant, and 4 cloudy, but fine and without rain. The atmospherical pres#itre has fluctuated for the most part about a mean elevation; but after the new moon, which occurred on the 29th, the pressure became high and pretty stationary: the strong west and southwest winds shitting more towards the south, diminished to a feeble breeze, dispersing the clouds; the consequence was, an augmentation of temperature.--Much thunder and lightwing prevailed during the rainy period, particularly on the 10th, 13th, 14th, and 30th.-On the 13th, à sudden violent glist of wind from the south-west. On the 24th, several hail-showers during the day.—The mean monthly temperature is eight degrees bigher than the mean of the preceding month.
