THE mean temperature of February is considerably above the average of the same month * during the last four years, and the mean daily range of the Thermometer is upwards of

a degree less. The temperature, therefore, has been more equable thani s generally ex. perienced in this climate. The warmest period of the month was the 6th, 7th, and 8th, when the Thermometer rose above 50, the coldest was after the 18th, when the temperature of the night was frequently below 32. The mean of the daily extremes coincides exactly with that of 10 morning and evening. The fluctuations of the Barometer are somewhat less than the annual average fluctuations, and the mean height is fully 3 tenths higher than that of February for the last four years. The state of the Hygrometer indicates an unusually dry atmosphere, owing to the prevalence of cold north-east winds towards the end of the month. It will be found, on looking back to the first Number of this work, that there is a striking coincidence between February of this year and the same month of 1817. The difference both in temperature and dryness is in favour of the latter. From the mild state of the weather about the 7th, it was expected that the severe winter was to be followed by an early spring. These hopes, however, have been partially disappointed by the stormy weather that set in towards the end of February, and which still continues (March 2d,) with increasing severity.
