Mild weather at the South.

--At Charleston, S. C., last week, the weather was unusually mild. Peach trees were in full bloom, green peas had been in blossom for a week, and strawberries were beginning to form. The Mercury anticipates that about the middle of next month strawberries and green peas will be among the luxuries supplied to Major Anderson at Fort Sumter, which would scent to indicate that the fort is not to be taken by the 4th of March after all. The Dallas (Texas) Herald says that during the last of January the editor saw hyacinths, roses, verbenas, chrysanthemums, oleanders and phlox in full bloom. Such has never before been the case, during the month of January, in one of the prairie counties of northern Texas. In addition to these novelties, a friend of the editor recently gathered a dish of fresh English peas from vines that have not yet been killed by the frosts of winter. All these things, the flowers and the peas, have been brought about without the use of hot-houses or stoves.
