Great progress has been made of late years in ascertaining
the limits and directions of winds, the result of widely
extended observations at sea and on land, which have been
collected and reduced by Meteorological Societies in England.
The first duty of those who wish to aid the labours of
such societies (and few objects can be more philanthropic), is to
register the readings of the barometer and the wind-force, and
the direction of such force. What is next wanted is to
examine and compare these phenomena, and draw practical
inferences from them, for both farming and shipping interests.
