N. B. The air, in general, has been so soft, that the small birds have chirped alond their goles. The effects of the gale, noticed in last month, have continued to the end of the present month. But the stagnated ar has taused a gloominels and foggancís; and the effect of its want of motion of the atmosphere has seasly caused a famive in the want of bread, the wind mills being almost contineally at a fand. The water-mills are nearly in the same fituation, the water being almost exhausted, from unusual drains, and long drought.
