The weather was so extremely disagreeable yesterday that but few ladies ventured out, fearing the combined effects of hall and sleet on the pavements. The men tripped mincingly along, as if fearing to come down by the run; while the beasts of burden tugged unwillingly at sluggish paces. The river showed no symptoms of an abandonment of its rising pretensions. Indeed, should the present ‘"spell"’ continue, we may reasonably look for a freshet of very respectable dimensions and depth.
