One of the thirteen long-range and general predictions which I have given forth and caused to be published in the leading newspapers of the day and in any yearly almanacs between the years of 1875 and 1882, and only two has been "out" or stray with respect to the summer season. Having said this niúch on by gone f orecasts, I desire now briefly to give a brief but comprehensivo outliiie of what, in my humble opinión, are likely to be the most remarkable features of the summer and autumn of the year 1882: First - A season that will merit the designation of cool, to cold and wet generally. Not that there will not be terms of summer warmth and even intense heat for periods, but rather that these last will appear in the retrospect; as of but comparativo insigniflcance, or as the exceptions to the general rule. Second - ïlie season will be marked by not only great precipitatiou, but by a muggin as of atmosphere, generally, caused by the reeking condition of the earth and the long continuance of elouded sky. This will result in periods of extreme sultriness and heavy weather, during which the thunder and hail storms will occur. In other words, the summer will be the reverse of clearand dry. Third - There is a likelihood of June and August frosts in Korthern, Westeru, and Southern Seetions, and a general cold wave may occur toward midsummer. Fourth - The autumn months will continue moist. September will probably give rains and floods in Western Canada, and in Western and Southern seetions of the United States. October will be much the same, with early cold and snow falls. November will begin the winter of 1882-83- a winter likely to be memorable on account of its exceptionaily heavy snow falls and very cold weather over the whole nofthern hemisphere. That "a cold and wet summer is invariably followed by a cold and stormy winter" is a truth now so well proven and borne out by the tefltimony of past records that we caimot lightly put it aside; and, if we have good and suflicient grounds forpredicting the tonner, as we must assuredly have at this time, it is but right that we should warn the people of the latter in good season. Fifth and last- Theapproaching season will probably be the ürst of a couple of wet summers, and as 1882 is so is 1883 likely to be. But here we must stop for the present. - Vennns Weather Bulletin for May. A correspondent of the Detroit Free Press, antnt the undertaking of a man in Michigan to reset 1,000 black walnut trees for commercial purposes, says that they cannot be trnnsplanted and retain their vigor. They should be grown from the nuts. He has made experimenta by both transplanting and raisini? from the seed, which convinced him that the latter is much the preferable way.
