nor ItyrarArnENcE.—On Saturday last we had a considerable increase of fly in the plantations in this neighbourhood ; but, in consequence of the high and cold winds to-day, not so many are to be found, they having retreated to the runners and the hedgerows. The weak liines, in many places, have stopped growing. Reports from 'Cranbrook Fair state that the low grounds are very much loaded with fly.—.MaidStone Gazette.
On Tuesday last, at Brencbley, 150 flies were counted on a leaf not so large as a crown-piece, but in most instances they lie too thick to be counted. The bine, however, has continued to grow vigorously till within the last few days, when it was checked. In one garden at Headcorn, and in others in different parts, the owners are taking up the poles, convinced that it is quite hopeless to expect a crop. The stocks are quite dead, supposed to be entirely rotted by the rains of last slimmer. Last year the fly did not make its appearance till the 28th of May ; this year it began to be visible on the 11th, nearly three weeks earlier. We have been assured by a planter, who in 1828 grew HA bags an acre, that, unless an early and very decided improvement take place, he shall not this year grow more than two. Another very extensive planter, who has been practically connected with farming for many years, considers that there are indications of a more " general blight than has been known for the last thirty-five years."—fiicIstone Journal
