The various correBpondents in Bonding iu erop reporta from Ibis county, have not agreed as to the condition of wheat, yet they seem generally to feel better about it than was to have been expected from the open winter. The following are the published reports from this county for April, the opinión of different correspondents being separated by dashes. We can hardly teil what the condition of wheat is; everythine is covered with clay mud in this township.- Think wheat is in the best condition I have known it for years.-It has been too dry andjthere has been too much bareground. Ice killed a good deal, but it may come on yet- VVheat on well drained land looks well, but on ,clay not well deained it is very light. Taking the late sowing and dry season into consideration, it has come through March looking well. Jacob Ganzhorn reports the peach and fruit prospects as follows: All of the fruits, excsptingthe peach have come out of the winter uninjured. The Crawford buds ave largely killed, also nearly all other varieties oípeaches on very young trees. Hill's Cltili and some other like hardy sorts are good. But as the Crawford predomínate largely in number of trees, the coming erop on the whole does not promise over 50 or 60 per cent. The outlook seems similar to the season of 18S6 with respect to peaches. The Ypsilanti weather reporter writes as follows: The snow and rain the latter pait of the month has been benefleial to wheat. I think wheat is in f ullas goodjcocdition as it was a month ago. Farmers all seems to be well pleased with the present outlook. Clover meadows on gravelly soil are good, little or no water standing on fields."
