METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

THE month of September commenced with showery weather, which was succeeded by dry winds from the west and north-west. From the 20th, and downwards, it rained frequently, and at times heavily, making the quantity of rain, altogether, about three times as much as that of the same month last year. The mean temperature, at the beginning of the month, was somewhat higher than during the latter end of August, the Thermometer rising daily above 60, and sometimes as high as 68. For some days during the second week it never reached 60, but an increase of temperature again took place between the 12th and 20th. From that till the end of the month the temperature of the day gradually declined, but that of the night suffered little or no diminution. The mean of the whole month is about half-a-degree lower than that of September last year. It will be seen from the abstract, that the mean of the extremes differs from the mean of ten morning and evening only by one tenth of a degree, and that the former, instead of being higher, as is generally the case, is in the present instance lower than the latter. The mean point of deposition corresponds also very nearly with the mean minimum temperature. The range of the Barometer has been greater than any month since March, though the mean height does not differ much from the annual average. The Hygrometer, notwithstanding the quantity of rain, indicates a greater degree of dryness than last year, and the evaporation is also greater. The prevailing wind in September 1817 was east and south-east this year

it has been west and north-west. A more satisfactory explanation of the fact, however, may perhaps be found in the comparative dryness of the summer months of this year. In 1817, the ground was perpetually soaked with water till the end of August, so that the atmosphere in September, though disposed to be dry, was rapidly supplied with moisture from the earth. On the contrary, during the preceding month of this year, the ground was so dry as to absorb quickly the rain of September, and thus to prevent the atmosphere from being so soon saturated as it would otherwise have been.
