Tbe Skowt Term awd its Imcidemts ?Our oity yesterday presented the appearance of an ant-nes: or bee hive discomposed by some sud den calamity There was jast about such a perplexed bustle of setting things to nghts as is noticeable in a troubled hive or ant hill, and almost every individual of our sixty or eighty thousand inhabitants had something to attend to in the way of an entombed pump or wood-pile, a stray deg-kennel, or an unget-at able office, ttore. or pig-pen SSOWBHLlia, ETC. The weather turning warmer yesterday, the mow was speedily converted to a slosh quite unfit for sleighing purposs?, but just the tblrg for snow Walling material, a fact recognized and made the most of by the juveniles. A squad of them was to be seen at every corner planted behind a pile of ready-made ammu nition, which they levelled with the strides', impartiality at parsers by of all degrees _ Diplomats and statesmen were arrested in their cogitations upon the affairs of nations by an unflattering 4 bim ' upon the side of the h? td Proul ladies sailing along the side walks were vanquished in mid career and sent scudding homeward to repair damages. Any passing vehicle was sure to hare to run tho gauntlet through the rows of rude boys lining the Aveauf. The sport, in abort, was eiciting?exhilara tin I; and we took our stand upon a corner to get a good view of it " ilow exuberant," we soliloquised. " are the spirits of boyhool! What a fund of innocent et>j yment these sprightly youths find in this sport?innocent we say, tor he must bo nartow-aainded indeed who would allow any slight personal incon venience to rutflrf his temper or cause him to view otherwise than with placidiiy what uinkes ?o many young hearts happy Oay, sportive youths be merry while you miy in the spring time of life !" v , At this moment we experienced a shock up< n the back of our head of a stunning na ture, occasioning extreme pain and causing luminous sparks to p iss across the field of cur vision. Our first impression was that we had been struck by a thunderbolt, but reflecting that this was not likely, considering the sea son. we then conceived that we had been shot and looked hastily behind us for the dastardly assassin ; but heating a sniggering sound from a couple of boys as they vani:>hed around the I corner, it appeared to us that we might have been hit by a snow ball, and on placing our I hands to our beaJ such proved to be the tact, I and what we hal supposed to bo our brains trickling down the back of our neck was a dis- I agreeable mixture of snow and ice. The blow was to sudden and unexpected as to deprive us of the power to follow these gal lows-trained scoundrels, but we know their I villainous faces, and they sh<?il sweat for it I yet! If there is one infraction of law more I reprehensible than another it is this life-en dangering practice ot throwing masses of snow and ice at unsuspecting persons on the street. I If the police cannot protect our citiiens from jach attieka, then we m?ght .is well have no I police We trust the authorities will look to it rtxr lost. A pump is missing in the snow somewhere I on 2*?ew York avenue, between first street an 1 I Mew Jersey avenue The snow hereabout is I twelve feet deep It is suggested that the I Mayor should offer a reward for its recovery I or discovery. TO-DAY. The weather clerk gave another twist to the I meteorological crank last night, consequently I the face of creation is fit xen up tight as wax I to-Jay, and the sleighing carnival is revived I with accelerated spirit The inventive genius J of our citiiens in improvatising vehicles upon I runners is pretty well exhausted, but we nc- I tioe some new patterns creditable to the gc- I nius of our country friends who attend Centre I Market; for instance a ^pung' shaped affair, I the uprights of which are small evergreen I trees with the ?? browse all retained, I the concern, when in motion, a sort of " Bit- I nam wood coming to Dunsinane 1 sort of look. The occupants of the vehicle looked warm and I cosy in their moving bower. srrrKEitte prom the stoh* A pitiib'.e spectacle is presented at the City Hall, in the crowds of shivering poor people, mostly women. who are to be seen crouching I about the passages and besieging the door of I Mayor s office. Since the storm, at least two I hundred applications have teen made to the I Mayor for relief,'/or firewood more pertieu I larly,) but which he has no power to grant, I save from his own pockets Officers >?orwooa and Birch, while on a I r-jutd of observation yesterday, found, in a I bouse on Third street, a j>oor feeble old v/o man. at least eighty years of age. qufte alone, J and without fire or Juel.
