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.
