The month of August commenced with dry weather, which continued with little interruption throughout. Excepting some light showers on the 1st, 7th, 10th, 17th, and 21st, scarcely exceeding in all one tenth of an inch, there fell no rain till the 25th. On that day, and on the 27th and 28th, there fell altogether about half an inch, but the whole quantity still bears a very small proportion indeed to that of August last year. The tem perature of the month has been uniformly elevated, the average being nearly 2 degrees above that of the corresponding month 1817. The Thermometer rose twice above 70, fre. quently to 66, and every day to 60. The Barometer was steady at an elevation of about 30 during the first three weeks, so steady, indeed, that on some days the elevation or depression of the mercury in the space of twelve hours, was imperceptible even in Adie's delicate Barometer. The Hygrometer was also generally high, the average being about 7 degrees above that of August last year. It will be seen from the abstract, that the mean of the maximum and minimum temperatures for the month, differs from that of 10 and 10 only by about three-tenths of a degree; and that the point of deposition, according VOL. III.

5 A

to Anderson's formula, is only about one degree lower than the mean minimum, a quantity altogether inconsiderable, when the prevalence of dry east and north east winds is taken into the account.
