--Our inhabitants were surprised yesterday morning on finding the ground covered with snow, about seven inches in depth, and more falling.
The air was perfectly still, and the trees were festooned most beautifully with snowy wreaths.
The earth, however, being saturated with previous rain, soon absorbed the snow, and the mud and slush became intolerable.
The sovereigns about the polls never had such a time before.
