AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIONS. WHEAT. Among farm products, wheat takes the first rank in the husbandry of Upper Canada. Formerly it occupied an equally prominent position in Lower Canada, but for many years this cereal has not been successfully cultivated in the eastern part of the province, in consequence of the Hessian- fly, wheat midge, and an exhausting system of culture; it is now, however, slowly regaining its position in Lower Canada. The following table shows the amount of wheat produced in Lower and Upper Canada in different years: I.cnviR Canada. Year.

In 1790 the valley of the Richelieu produced 40 bushels to the acre EXTOKTS OF BREADSTTJFFS FROM THE PORT OF QUEBEC, FBOH 1793 TO 180], AND FROM 1816 TO 1822, INCLUSIVB. Tmi. Vli.:nt.
