Vc notica that the winter has set in
with unusual severity ia England as well
3 ia this country, acd that there is
great Buffering among the poor. Our
attention be;ng called to this, we took
occasion to refer to ano!J Look contain
ing some records in regard to the weath
er of that country, and of portioti3 of
the eattern continent, and were sur
prised to find that at times they have
had winters that would bo considered
eevere in Cacada. Ia J 814 the Thames
was f.czen so firm that booths were
built on tho ice. Aguin, in 1789 that
river was frozen euScient for crossing.
In 1420 the ice between Constantinople
and Iskaiar w3 passable on ice ; and in
1224 the Mediterranean was frozen aver
and poods wcro run across in carts ; and
tbs ThuBOS was rozen for fourteen '
weeks in 10G3. and in the river fro
zen for five weeks. Tho Mediterranean

TLuj we sec that Europe, at times, has
had winters intensaly severe in sections
where the olive and the oranra flourish

The recurrence of these severe winters

meteroloieal law could account for them,
nor do they establish any lav; that would
justify any prediction of their recurrence.
Mankind can solve in.iDy of the appa.

2000 years for the ba:s of his calcula

an eclipso will commence a thousand

weather for an hour ahead. It is a ques
tion that all arj interested in, and a
thing that hundreds cf millions of pco
p!j have been continually watching since
the earth was peopled, and yet it is a j
puzzle as much to the philosopher as
tho fooL No one knows whether the
severe seasons refered to were the re
u!i of som-j fixed law, or the effect cf
Borne accidentally uniting circumstance.-;
nor can they tell whether this winter wi'l
be like them or whether Europe will
ever have such agaia.

"lie was one who had wrested ri ;hes
from the poor by the most audacious
schemes of robbery ever perpetrated
with impunity; whoo rrh in lifj was
bordered by ih-s wretkot" honestermeu's
fortunes; whose plundering plots had
bankrupted the widow and the orphan;
whoso every dollar, whose every jewel,
..whose every possession, represented
wrongs inSieted upon his fellows ; who
knew noither honesty, truth nor mercy;
whose career was a double cursj to his
country demoralizing to our youth, on

We repect vice nowhere. Living, it is
entitled to co exemption from criticism;
dead, it demards from us no com pn no

caused by tbe manner of his takhig off

whom he lived will see him with our

moral enormity of his career and exam
