On the farm ol Mr. Tit.t)K. anl brothers, there is a llock of 1.300, mo-tly of Saxr.n blond. We saw the fleeces of this years' clip, which are not yet sold. They are generally tif lino quality, and are put up iii very good order, being well clean-ed, and of almost snowy vvhi'oiies.. The average weiuht this season, was o ii ,, jr lleece. The Urgc.-t Heece was tli if of a buck (i lbs. The host buck, how ever, is a throe-vc:.r-nld one. bled by Air. C. 11.

Wool is considered Ihe staple product, an I no more stock of any other kind than sheep, is kept than is ii"Ce try lo inanago the farm; at present there nro kept .1 horses, I oen, ti cows, ami :i jo'ing cattle.

It is our intention lo give a inoro particular descrip tion of it next nionlli. In compinv with Mr. Tilden, wo vi-ited tlio mount lin on which arn his principal summer ranges for sheep.

I have already laid lieforo iho readers of the Annuaire Iho results of Ihe investigations un dertaken by tho natural philosophers and astro nomers, regarding tho influence of Iho moon anil of comets on thu changes of tho weather. These results clearly show, in my opinion, that the Influences of lin'th these bodies arc almost insensible, ami, therefore, that tho prediction of tlio weatlier can never lie a lirancli ol astrniioniv, proiierly so called. And vet our satellite and comets have, at all periods, been considered as preH)iiderating stars in meteorology. Since the publication of these opinions, I have regarded the problem in another aspect. I have considered whether the operations of man, and occurrences which will always remain lioyonu the raniro of our foresiolit, tmi'bt not Ihj ot such nature as lo ninthly climates nccmenuilly, anil ill a very sensible manner, in particular with regard to temperature.
