THE GREAT FROST OF 1855. <A laov Storm of Thirty- aix Boors Deration. ITS SFFECTI IH THE CUV. Appearance of the Streets and Docks, the Ferries and the Railroads. Account* of the Storm from all Parts of tbe Country, *0., &o.; & c. The intent cold of Wedneiday terminated in one of tbe fiercest mow storms which we h*vo had for several 7?r r. We were congratulating ourielvei upon the com paratively mild winter with which we wore favored, and were looking forward with tbe most pleasing auticipi tlons to the near approach of apriog, when we were sud denly vUlted by a frost which has not been equalled in aererlty during the past ten year*. Hi ? mercury, which hardly onoe in a decade falls below zero in our eity, 1*11 several degrees below that point on Wednesday nigUt, viiil* the ttlcgrapli informs u? tbnt in Vermont and ?other Eastern States it d??;eti<?'d as low as thirty de grees. It apppured as if some great revolution had taken place on the surface of our plsnit, and that New York ?nd Nova Zemb!a had changed latitude. Who has not thought of the terrors of the Arctic regioma, as he shiver ad under the keen blast, and of the penis to which those daring adventurer* who left our port two long years ago in March of tUe L*t navigator, arc now exposed? Though It 1* seldom that we have suoti Intensely cold weather as we experienced during the present weak, what is it to thut which they are subject? Away up in the regions of almost perpetual winter, where the powers -of nature seem paralyzed, the brave, self-reliant corn minder of the Advance, and his little crew, are now per haps hennaed <n by huge bergi, or drifting about amid treacheroo* ice Uelds, at the me' cy of the winds. How often their thoughts revert to home, and to the friends they left behinl them ! and how seldom we think of them, uuleai reminded of their condition by the fierce bitter winds which sweep down upen us from the north! Let us hope that before another winter passes, he and rvhe companions who have I hired tbe dangers with whl:h he is beset will return, and that we may have the plea sure of welcoming him onee more among us. The weather moderated coiallerahly on Thursday morning, aluce when it continued snowing almost with out intermits on, up to a late hour last night. The average depth of the snow is about twelve Inches hut in some places, where it has been drifted by tin wind It is five or six feet deep. The wind, indeed, hai played some curious freak* with it. piling it in some places up in huge banks, while In other portions of the ?streets the tine it t red stones preient a etrong contratit to the uniform white which surround* them. Tbe aroai on one side have been filled with it but on tbe other it has been most sparingly distributed, am! the same invisible agency was employed during the night in drifting it through the crt- vices of door* and windows, to the no ?mall annoyance and discomfort of careful housekeeper* Hckens has, in his usual inimltntile style, described the doings of a I ondon blast, but we doubt if it could sur ? ps ?,? the freaks of a renJ, genuine New York wind. New i ?weeps along tbe house tope, and the pedestrians beneath -?>e tnvoloperi in a cloud of snow Kow it whirls It Into the air to tb? height of twenty feet or more, forming a ? perfect "snow spout," while on door stoop., window panes, cart*, awnings, eigne, lamps and everything ex ' posed to It. it is formed into the most grotesque shape*. I Put your ear to this telegraph pole and as it sweeps i . along the vires you will hear sounds as sweet anl plain < *.ive as were ever evoked from the strings of an arolian ; the trees, too. vibrate with its sweet, plaintive melody ?-while from church spirei, chimneys, and lire tower*, i ! calls forth a deep monotone. But it was withal a gentle wiad, when compared with those rough, boisterous blasts with w'uch we are assailed, and whose course od ?ea and land ia marked by wreck and ruin. It 1* not of it tbe poor have to complain, but of the frost which -made their povtrty more Intolerable and their mis erable dwellings still more m serable. Who can tell of the sufferings of that deatitute woman who** ! I'feless body was found lying beneath the scanty cover- ] ?in; with which she vainly endeavored to protect herself fri m the bit er cold of Wednesday night. To see its j effects upon the poor, one mu>t visit those localities , where they lir?, snd look into thsir wretched habit a I .tioo- ? must see the miserable lire at which they vainly i attempt to warm themselvne, bd I tke scanty clothing I ?that wrap* their freezing limbs One poor fellow we ? hw emerging from a basement that seemed more fitted i as a dwelling tor swine than a habitation for a human i feeing. He was evidently one of the unemployed me chanics, of whom there are thiaxands in this city re duced to the same condition. HI* appearance was that cf respectable poverty, if poverty can be called respejt wtiie, bat his fare bore the expression of a man who had terima enured te miesry ? With a "torn patieue*. acoreing we*k complaint, lie hardened nia heart ag&inet *i<atling want. How different the scene when he an actur, from th?t presented bjr the Fifth avenue, where the children ?f wealth, locked np in their palatial manaiona, surround them?elT*s with all the luxuries which riehee can pro eme, and lau?h at the terror* of winter. What care they for the cold, piercing wind aa they MX out In tbeir magnificent slrlgh*, wrapped in warm fun? For them, winter only brioft new recreations ? for that which ?ny he death to the poor is to the rich only a change of pleasure*. Bat eren to the poor It I* not without (one fceneUt? thousands who are out of work hare been ea ?bled te obtain temporary employment In clearing ? ??f the mow from before the doora and off the path* In the park* and other public places. In thla way aome make two or throe dollar* of a morning, while all who are able to handle a broom or a ahirel could make themselves Independent of the soap kitchen* for two or three dly? at ! lea>t. It waa a gratifying eight to *ee the eagernees , with which they went at their work when they were *o fortunate a* to oueeeed in their application to the house- j keeper.

The travel on the city railroad* vraa ?ou>#what alower than uiual ye?lerday, in conaequeoce of the hear/ fall of (now. By the aid of an admirable contrivance, called the mow plough, the tracka were kept pretty elear.

On the Hudson River Railroad the traina were not de tained more tban half an hour beyond their uauai time. On the Hail>'m and New Haven roads the JetonUoa of the train* did not exceed half an hour. The train* on theKrie Railroad were aix hour* behind time yeaterday morning, the road in never*! p'.acea be ing coverid nilh drilte to the depth of Ore and aix feet. THE HAILS. The Boaton mail, which wa* 'due yesterday morning by ateamhoat, a* well aa the lamV mail, due at on* in the afternoon, did not arrive till neven o'clock la*t evening. The Southern mail* were detained only a few minuto* beyond the regular tine. THE KIYERSAKD THE BAY. Both river* and the bay were filled with fltatiog ico, and a largo number of ve**el* weie detained below Quar antine in conaequenco. The ateumboal Columbua hi* made one trip thi* morning, and will leave again at three o'ctock, for that point, and will not return to-day. The kteamer Hunchback, while laying at anchor at gtaplet?n, had two hole* cut in her by the ice. and wa* put head on the beach to repair. The revenue cutter apoken of yesterday as having dragged her anchor, ia very near the beach and frox?n in near Townaend'* dock. A fiahing achoouor ia alao froxen in near Van Bitten* dock.

Without wishing to pl*<e either one of these hardy and faithful pablio servants and frontiersman hlgLer in toe public estimation than the ot.ie.s, I j cannot help here t peaking in warm terms of a1 mitatlon ot Colonel Jacob Hall, contractor for oar tying the mall from Independence, Missouri, to Bsnta Fe, New Mexico, a distance of eight hundred and fifty miles In six mul? coaches and baggage wagons For four yeara up to the 1st of July la?t ' Color el Hail never lost a mail nor proved a delta- 1 qoett over that long aid difficult route. Hyju^ cious management he his so timed and met II truer gencles as to command the high esteem and approbation of tbe present as well us the late Post Office Department. Coiontl Hall was formerly a lawyer of distinction in Alabama, but la uow a citl- I sen of Missouri, toseeseing a Hon landed eotite and a deservedly high popularity. He la o\e of Colonel 1 Thomas Hart Bent >n a main pillars of support, and Irmly believes in " Old Bullion's" great forecast srd statesmanship, and in bis great Central Pa iflo lUllroad.
