Cold weather.

--The mercury in the thermometer, on Monday night, was a long way above the freezing point, and gave us a taste of what might be called desperately cold weather. The water in several of the by grants in the upper part of the city was frozen so hard as to require copious potations of hot water before they (the hydrants) could be coaxed to yield up their regular supplies for family use.
