During this period the weather has been extremely variable. We had some
days of sharp frost: this was succeeded by rain, and subscquently by heavy winds.
In the night of the 12th of December the wind was extremely boisterous.

November 19.--Some few of the late Powering autumnal plants continue still in bloom, though the late frosty nights have cut off the greater part of them. The wallflower, (cheiranthus cheiri,) bemlock-leaved cranesbill, geranium molle, strawberry tree, (arbutus unedo,; and joy, (hedera helix,) are chose which have been principally observed.

November 22.---The gossamer continues to float.

November 23.--Bullfinches, in some of the midland parts of Sussex, are unusually abundant.

November 26 - In several of the clear rivulets and streams, the smaller lampreys, or lamperos, as they are called in some parts of the country, petromyzon fluviatilis of Linnæus,) are observed to adhere to the gravel and stones. They are easily caught by boys, who wade in the water for that purpose.

November 27.-On the sea shores of Hampshire and o:ber southern counties, the sand-launces, (ummodytes tobianus,) are caught in great abunudauce at the recess of the spring udes. They are a somewhat eel-shaped fishi, willi a hard and pointed snout, and about six inches in length. As the water retires they lupy themselves under the sand, through which they have the power of moving with sufprizing facility. The mode in which they are caught is by digging them out with a kind of prong, and considerable expertness is required in the seizing of them, for if

they once e-cape from the fingers, and can penetrate the sand, it is a very unneult · matter to recover them.

November 29.-A storm of thunder and lightning in the evening.
November 30,---Fieldfares are arrived.

December 1.-The first blades of wheat begin to shew themselves above the surface of the ground.

A few herrings were this day caught on the western shores of Hampshire. The public papers mention that an immense number were caught about this time in the
