NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Sunday, February 44, IH46. Weekly Herald. A third edition of the IVetkly Herald will be iMue-d this morning, with the late foreign news, and the lull particular* of the wrecks on Srquan Beach. We have been obliged to do th.a, in order to supply the increased demand. What la Peace J?Sunday Reflections. It would be utterly imt>ossible to say any thing upon ihe blessings ol peace, or in deprecation of the incalculable miseries of war, which would uot be trite and common-place. All, perhaps, that can be sa id upon tins subject has been already said a thousand times, and repeated over and over again. And yet, notwithstanding, peace is indeed a blessing, and hardly too much can be said in its favor?hardly too much can be done for its preservation. Wise nations, as wise even as ourselves have been plunged into long and vexatious wars, which have weakened, crippled, and, eventually, ruined them. There might be auch an inextricable entanglement of circumstances, such a provoking and complicated course of events, that, with every desire to maintain peace, yet we might be driven luto war, and find ourselves, almost against our will, involved in all its horrors, its blood, its cruelty, its injustice, and its devastation. If, then, as wise nations as our selves hat e unnecessarily and rashly been partici patoiy in the horrid deeda ot war?if circumstances b~yond all our control might have provoked and h irried us into war?whom have we to thank lor the inappreciable and never duly appreciated bless ing of continuing peace, but that great and Al mighty Power who alone controls the events and circumstances ot nations and individuals, and directs the hearts and minds of all people as He wills! We have, indeed, as a nation,great cause to acknowledge His power in our behalf, and to be thanklul to Him tor seen and unseen, known and unknown cervices, and for a preservation in peace and wonderful prosjierity hitherto. When Washing ton led our dispirited and little armies; when an overwhelming enemy has been ready to sweep away, apparently, our lost and forlorn hope, how often has lie mterposed, and suddenly we might sey, miraculously, raised a mist, as iu one case?a sudden Hood, as in another?which saved our lit tle patriotic band from destruction, and baffled the well-lmd plans and almost certain hopes of our ?nemy. If, in the present crisis ot our aflairs, when war, with all its evils, appeared to be inevitable?if, at such a time, the general mind has been dis posed to a j>eacelul and harmonious course, has been inclined to receive or propose con cessions which will avert the dernier resort to havoc and bloodshed?if, in such a vibrating and doubtlul posture ol aflairs, circumstances have all been caused to yield, and bend, and modify them selves lo a complexion favorable to the conserva tion of peace?we say again, whom should we thank but the All-wise Ruler and Disposer ot all eveuts, whose kind and watchful care over us, has been, we believe, again signally manifested to wards us, in this eventful juncture I He has raised up our nation?He has kept it and preserved it?He has carried it by his blessing, to an enviable height of greatness and prosperity; and may He not only oontinue to do so, but may we also increase And continue in acknowledging gratefully, and compre hending wisely His goodness. Yet in the face of all this, our rights must be ma ntained at all hazards. National honor must be preserved inviolable. If need be, we will fight, and desperately, too. Origin op Oregon ?In all the numberless dis cussions which Oregon has given rise to, little if anything hati been said of the meaning or of the origin of the word As tar as we can ascertain, Oregon is a word of Indian origin, and signifies the High Itidge, and is jiroperly the name of those mountains which we call, not perhaps very appro printely, the Rocky Mountains. We say not appro priately, because nothing is indicated by the term which may exclusively characterize them, since all mountains are more or less rocky, and may claim the name as well as these. This name is also cal culated to mislead. Many persons are apt to ima gine that the Rocky Mountains are a vast ridge of rocks; whsreas they are, like all others, green and beautilul elevations, presenting all that rough variety of rich and picturesque landscape which is to be observed among them all. The Oregon Mountains ' is more properly their name, and is perhaps more euphonious than their present more familiar appella tion. These vast mountains are a continuation ol that long range which constitutes an immense system of mountains, commencing at Cape Horn, the southern extremity of the great western hemisphere, running Irom Cape Horn throughout the entire length of the American continent. It has been familiarly called ihe back-bone ol America, from its anali ,-y to that osseous ridge which runs through most annuals, and which seems intended to give strength and unity to the softer parts. In South America, that portion of these mountains which traverses the country is called the Andes; in Guate mala and Mexico, their name is changed, and they are called tho Cordilleraa; north of Mexico they assume the name of the Rocky Mountains, or the Oregon, as we have shown they were originally called by the natives. The entire length of the whole chain is estimated to be nine thousand miles. Between the Oregon Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, is a wide strip of land which belongs, on the north, to Russia, and on the south, to Mexico. The middle portion, and the least valunble of the whole, as it contains but one good river, and little more than one plain or valley of any fertility, called the Willamette Valley, belongs at present, by treaty, to the United States and Great Britain, by whom it is held in a sort of joint occupation. As long as this joint occupancy is in force, neither party can be said to have a right to the exclusive possession of the country. Hence will be perceived the justice ol Mr. Polk's views, in recommending a dissolution of this partnership, by giving the proper notice, according to the terms of the treaty. And this view may satisfy every one that the giving this notice has no necessary connection whatever with warlike intentions or demonstrations. The word Oregon having been used of late with almost nauseating frequency, this change of the subject to a geographical and etymological direc tion, may give some relief. In the mean time, it is not improbable that we have been " barking up the wrong tree." The monster of war, it it should ap pear at all, will very likely arise in another and dif ferent quarter <MM Lata Snow Democracy oT lUlfhlnf' A snow Miorm in this city !8 st any time a great thing, provided it be deep enough to allow our plea sure-loving people an opportunity ot riding a few miles without graung on the paving stonea with which our streets are paved. The late storm was ot this character, and we need hardly say that it was fully taken advantage ot, and that every thing at all approaching a tunner in appearance was brought into requisition. Une of our corpt took a sleigh ride yesterday, with the intention of detailing the incidents ot a de mocratic sleighing excursion in this region, tor the edification of.our Southern readers?those* unfortu nates who have never experienced the pleasure of sitting in a cold room, with their teet in a tub of cold water, a draft blowing in their faces, and keep ing time to the whistling of the north wind, with the poker and tongs. This is the definition which the immortal Franklin applies to the exciting plea sure of sleighing ; but although it may have applied to the amusement in his day, we are apt to think that, as regards the sleighing on the Third avenue, this definition will not apply at the present time. We accordingly jumped into a Harlem sleigh, and, with the assistance of a couple of pair of nags, reached the suburbs of the city without any serious drawbacks. The way, thus far, was not remarka ble; but alter we had fairly got out of the city? after the last of the brick and mortar was left hall a mils astern?ye immortals, what a scene we found ourselves a part of! Old men and young men, married and single men, crusty old bachelors and their intended help-meets, lawyers' clerks and doo doctors, merchants and boot-blackB, stock-bro kers and parsons, tinkers and tailors, and others I too numerous to mention, in every kind of vehicle, lrom an ancient hack carriage on runners, to a wheel barrow on the same foundation, all agog for a sleigh ride, the last,probably, for the season. Here would be seen the Wall street speculator and his wife, with his segar in his mouth and his robes around him, pretending to be enjoying the amusement, and making believe that he was happy; although the deep cast brow told that his soul waB still in the back dark basement of his office in Wall street.? Here would pass the sleigh of a bank president, con taining, besides himself, his lamily of daughters, each with a smile of paradise on her lipe, and a bloom on her cheeks sufficient to tempt some one. No sooner would they be well out of sight, than a ) thundering democratic two story sleigh, with the ominous name of " Oregon" painted in golden let ters, and containing a lot of the " boys," would be hailed, making a noise sufficient to wake the seven sleepers. Here is a chance for the writers of books on America. Out with your pencils, Madame Trol lope and romantic and lie-loving Marryatt; here , is a cnance for you to dip your pencils in the " de tails" of democracy. If you have courage to write t' lly, now ft your time. JSee the happy throng ! Do you see the careful driver, listening with attention to the conversation of his "gues;s," enjoying their jokes; yet man- j aging hia trusty steeds with the hand ot experience, until, whiz! a snow ball aimed by the truant school i boy meets his eye, and he gives up the reins to his ! friend to drive until he clears his daylights of the unwelcome intruder. See with what carejulness and regard to his passengers, his substitute avoids that impetuous fellow, who, regardless of the in- ! junctions of the livery-stable man, seems to be trot ting against time, his sole aim, apparently, be ing whether the segar butt in his cheek will be exhausted before he reaches Cato's. And, oh, ye host of foreign scribblers and malicious misrepresenters, did ye ever see a sight like that an your native shores'! There you see the honest far mland hia blooming daughter, with the rosy hue of morning, painted with nature's own tints on her smiling cheek, coming home from the great city.? See with what care she keeps her little bundle of ribbons and 'kerchiefs?presents for her brothers and sisters, purchased with the avails of the|old man's summer Bweat. See with what piide the old man, wrinkled, looks upon his dutilul child, and despite of the dashing fashionables momendy over taking him, keepa on in the same old fashioned jog trot. But we are warned to keep out of the track, and we shall do it. Hurrah! Hurra! Here comes a j Pearl street clerk, in a splendid sleigh, drawn by a , splendid nag, for which somebody Buffers. Away he goes, a hundred rods ahead of his fellow clerk, who, with his intended in company, would die be- j fore he would be distanced. Run away ! run away ! | the race is continued, until coming in contact with a charcoal box on runners, his nag dashes ahead, whilst he and his intended are dumped on the white snow, amid a erash of timber and the jeers of the passers by. See that old concern, loaded to its full est capacity with the family of a bank president - See the earnest manner in which the banker's lady warns the driver $to drive steady, and evade those bloods, who seem bent on being upset?and observe what seems almost too inevitable, the crash that will undoubtedly ensue, if those blacklegs in that fash ionable turn-out, do not alter their course. See how the old lady fidgets?but, heavens! they have pass- j ed, and miraculously escaped meeting them. "Fifty four forty!?Hurrah!" proceeds from that large sleigh containing the Empire Club; and "54 , 40?54 40?and a little beyond," is vociferated by their friends, as they pass by, in answer to the salutation. Away they go?horse-flesh and runners above par. " What the devil is this feLow aboutl" "Lord, he will rua into us!" "Keep the right side!" exclaims our driver. He receives in answer that they would send him to the serious resting place, and with the speed ol lightning, he just touches our vehicle, and leaves us behind a mile in an instant?while his competitor, a black-leg lrom Park Row, strains his animal to the utmost, in older to win the segars. But lo! who is this coming down at such a furi ous rate, and with such a splendid establishment 1 No matter. This is enough to show the democracy of sleighing in New York. It is nch and raptur ous. Mors Shipwrecks.?We have been iavored with a few extracts of letters from the agent of the un- j derwriters, to Walter R. Jones, Esq., of this city, ' dated : Aascro* Inlkt, Friday F.rening, > Feb 10th, 9 o'clock, P. M. } -j The brig Aboone, Capt.

She is perfectly tight, and I think tha car go will be landed in the courie of to-morrow, in good order. I have aent aaaiitanca to her. with Capt. Bell, who has all the necessary material* for getting the rea ls! off. and from what I can learn reapecting her aitua tion, it can be eaaily affected. The brig Betaey, ot Boston, Capt.

Fob Boston ?A special train will leave Brook lyn this morning at 8 o'clock, lor Boston ( Pbxnck DmoJiicr-PiMiDiKT Rotu \xd M. Guizot?The reader* ot the Herald will remember, no doubt, that several weeks ago we published the secret correspondence of M. Guizot with President Rosas. Ihe letter from the French Minister to the President of the Argentine Republic, was carried by u certain Captain Page, a secret agent, and com tained propositions for private arrangements, ex ceedingly curious, and couched in terms of the most careful diplomacy. Rosas, indignant at the deceit, published the letter to the world. We now find that there exists no doubt whatever of the genuineness of the letter we published, nor of the tacts we then related. Advices from Paris concur in establishing the authenticity ol our infor mation; nud we find the French government organ in this city also confirms the truth ol our statement, by referring to the letter as authentic, under the head of Pans correspondence. We mention this circumstance, not merely as a proof ol the correctness of oar important state ; menu, but to call attention to the (act itself, as an interesting portion of secret history ; which, from its apparent incredibility, was received with some suspicion by many, at the time we made it public. The affairs on this continent may yet become of : too delicate a nature for the continuance of the alli ance between France and England. Vk*y Late feom Mexico.?We have re ceived |by the packet ship Norma, Captain Bar : ton, from Havana, the Faro Jnduttrtal to the 10th inat. It contains intelligence from the city of Mexico and Vera Cruz to the 31st ol January, ten days later than our previous advices. According to these accounts, Paredes remains in the undisturbed enjoyment of the power which his military force acquired tor him; and his course and conduct seem to make it appear that as iar as regards the good government of the country, and the honorable conduct of the government, the power could not have fallen into better hands. All accounts of revolution, subversive of his au thority, which dats prior to the 31st of January, are falsilled by the intelligence we have received. No movement up to that date was made, or eve pears contemplated, againg of Paredes. At any rate, then to the reported pr Track were one hunfj port of Hava can, thirty-* French, aian, and i tion Cuban] half Island ' list vessel; In lowi, tedl lasl abol (ttol Pa AufB deligB Chtrj rimi| thiii hut tad fd conefl thaf| ambl bardl crow Jul i J by il beautiful children, will make their third appear ance at the conclusion of the tragedy, in tneir graceful and astonishing gymnastic exercises. The performance of these great artiste* has excited univer sal admiration, both in this country and Europe. At the ti.eatre " Varieties," in Paris, they performed seventy five nights to brilliant end crowded houses,?at the Princess Theatre, and English Opera House, London, upwards of one hundred nights, as well as in the princi pal cities on the continent?always giving the most un bounded satisfaction. We doubt not they will prove a great card to the management of the Park. The eve ning's en ertainment concludes with the farce of the " Bengal Tiger." Bowaav Theatre.?'The performances at this establish, ment, consisting of tBanniater's new drama of the "Orange Uirl of Venice-," and his production of " Wal lace, or the Hero of Scotland," and other entertainments, drew a full, fashionable, and crowded auditory last night. On Monday evening is to be presented a grand national and new eauestrian drama, from the prolific and untiring pen of N. H. Bannister, Esq , entitled "Araapba, or the Last of the Delawares," in which J. R. Scott, Mrs. O. Jones, and Messrs ('ony and Blanchard, will form the most distinguished features. The author (Mr. Bannis ter) says, that if this play does not suoceed, (which is a warranty in itself,) he never will place his pen to paper again. From what we know of this production, we are satisfied that it will eclipse all the former efforts of this gentleman, and become even more popular than his play of " Putnam," or the more recent production of the "Wiiard of the Wave." "We shall be there to see." Host's Ciacus.?The highly classical and refined per formances at this favorite place of amusement, continue to draw very large aadiences. This is owing to the suc cessful efforts of the managers in prodacing novelties that are not often exceeded in this city. The perform ances yesterday afternoon, particularly the exquisite riding of Madame Macarte, and the jokes of the favorite clown, drew forth the most flattering expressions of admiration. We do not know of a more suitable place of amusement for families than Howe's Circus,at Palmo's Opera House. Movements of Travellers.

Dear Sir Believing you to be the most public spirited and liberal minded editor in the United States, I have presumed upon the liberty of stating to you a ({rievance which the marine community labor under, and which ought, in common justice, to be redressed, or at least made public.

There is one, and only one atten dant at the establishment, (which, by the way, is a rough, old wooden fabric, little better ?mn common barn, situated on the river, about aeven miles from town,) who is an old sailor, discharged from one of our New York packets, while out there; and no matter how many invalids there may chance to be. tfna man is supposed to administer to them all their medicine and food, nurse and attend them, and when dead, dig a hole in the sand, and cover them up. They rarely, if ever, see a doctor. The predecessor of this man was an old negTrss, whom, 1 am credibly informed, by a gentleman in Wilmington, abandoned a poor sailor, aick with the small-pox, for three days and three nights, leaving him without one particle of food, drink, or atten dance, until the poor fellow, feeling himself in a state of starvation, actually crawled to town on his hands and knees, in search of the common suste nance of life ; and yet. this is by no means a rare incident. Now, in the name of Heaven, tells ns it such a state of things is to continue to exist in the veiy heart of our enlightened country 1 Alter riding fifteen days quarantine, (if that may be to styled, for which there are no regulations, and i where there is no visiting physician,) you proceed : to town, come-to off the lower end of it, and send your boat ashore to hunt up) the doctor?his highness comes on board, ascertains if your time is up, and examines your crew?woe to the unfortunate man who happens to have a pimple on his person; for, in such a case, the vessel is ordered back for fifteen days more, and the poor fellow is sent to.this mo dern Golgotha.

William Redmond i t Samuel SicartwoulThis was an action to recover back $7,088 71 duties paid by plaintiff" to defendant, while the latter was Collector of the port of New York. It appeared that, by the 3d section of the act of Congress of 1833, a duty of 36 percent, was im posed upon certain articles imported into the United States, manufactured of hemp and flax. By the 4th sec tion of the act of March, 1843, bleached and unbleached linens were exompted from this duty, provided that they were not dyed or colored, except such stains or | discoloration as the flax or hemp might receive in the , processes of rottiim or manufacturing; and a circular was issued by the Treasury Department, instructing the custom house appraisers to ascertain whether all im ported articles referred to by the act were colored by dying, or merely such stains as were unavoidably re ceived in the processes afoiesaid. The plaintiff, in the years 1836, 1837 and 1938. imported considerable quanti ties of bleactied and unbleached liuens, and the apprais ers reported that they were colored. The defendant, under thut report, compelled Mr Redmond to pay the full duties, under a protest. The question was after wards brought before the 8upreme Court of the United States, by other importers, and the Court decided that ll.n (^.nllaptnr'd dnr tat in it a a HIamI Mr Hnvt siifffAAil. the Collector's decision was illegal. Mr. Hoyt succeed ed Mr. Swartwout, in the meantime, and application was made to him by Mr. Redmond to refund ; but he in sisted that a written protest was necessary, and Mr. Redmond's being merely verbal, he, on that ground, re fused to pay. The statute of limitations was interposed as a defence ; also, that Mr. Redmond had taken the be nefit of the bankrupt act, and it was contended that his interest became vested in bis assignee, who was not, but ought to be, a party to the suit. A verdict was ta ken by consent, subject to the opinion of the Cou f n bank on a case to be made or plaintiff, Messrs. Hall bt Cutting ; lor defendant, ' U. I. District Attorney. Morm^ \ airs.?The Wartave Signal of the Bth inst iy^ -We learn that the New Wisconsin Prophet, v ' e name is James J. Strang, is making con siderable ds into the ranks of the Twelve, espe cially withuui the limits of Holy City. He has estab lished himseli in Racine county, Wisconsin, at a place he calls Voree, to which he invites all his followers Here he has started a paper, called the Porte Herald. The first number contains a letter, purporting to have been written by Joe. Smith, dated at Nauvoo, Jane 17, 1844, ten days before his death, and directed to the said Strang. In this letter Joe foretells his approaching doom, and in view of his death appoints the aaid Strang his successor as Prophet, Seer and Revelator. By virtue of the authority, Strang claims to be the successor of Joe, and says the Twelve should be subservient to him. Being prophet, seer and ravelator. Strang says the Lord directed him where he could find some plates, which would complete what Joe had lsft undone. These plates he is now translating. Tha new prophet is re ceiving revelations and seems to have his church in full blast The Mormons, living! in the eounty, are many of them Joining the standard of Strang, and are leaving for Voree.

Tha Gladia tor left Wilmington on Saturday, at 11 o'clock, and ow ing to tha violence of tha gala, waa Ave houra in getting to Smith villa; aha than hove to for the night The Gov.

At 1 o'clock on Sunday, pa aaa d tha Governor Dudley going up tha river, all aafa. Tha wind on Fri day night and Saturday, blow a perfect hurricane from aaat aoutheaat. On Saturday night it changed to north aaat?all tha atrandod veaaela wore hard and faat on Sun day evaulng. [From tha Georgetown, 8.

We nad but two voaaola in port, and they rode out tha blow in aafety. The weather continued to thicken, and tha wind became a gnle by 10 o'clcek, and blaw with groat fury till 12 o'clock, at 8. E. and 8. 8 E. Great damage haa boon dona to tha rice Held banks and tha wharves. Soma 9000 or S000 sticks of timber ware put adrift and floated up near tha aaw mill, where they are being secured at tha time wa write. Captain Marsh's pilot boat, tha Cora, was ran into by the drifting rafts of timber, carried into tha atiwam and aank. [From tha Richmond Whig, Fab. 90.] We had yaiterday an old fashioned mow atom, com mencing about one o'clock, and accompanied with a strong wind. Tha weather waa cold ana disagreeable, and la likely to be so for soma days to coma. Wa faar our volunteers will net have their usual opportunity for display on Saturday. *? [From tha Baltimore Clipper, Fab. 90.] Tha can from Washington laat evening warn detained until half past 8 o'clock, the snow storm having act in w itb great violence at Washington at 8 o'clock, cover ing tha ground to tha depth of aBout four inchee at live o'clock. Tha Cumberland train arrived at 7] o'clock. Laat evening, Juat before dark, it commenced snowing in regular old taihroned style, with a fair prospect of a deep anow if it ooutinuea at the rate it ia falling at our time of writing. We learn that it commenced snowing in Washington at an early hoar in the afternoon, and waa still snowing whan tha cars left left night. It haa been trying all the winter to a have a snow, and present appearances indicate that this will be a successful ef fort [From tho Philadelphia Gazette, Feb. 91.] About eight o'clock on Thuredey evening, anow be gan to fall, and tha wind to blow keenly lrom the north east, drifting the flakea slantingly into tha faces of those pedestrians whe opposed it Drifts accumulated in boles and corners, and a thin powdery anow, which the wind tossed upwards from tho ground, ma da tho air mis ty, and most uncomfortable. The storm continued until early yesterday morning, when sleet began te take the place of anow, and in a short time there waa an execra ble cover of " ploah" upon the pevements, rivulets of water meandering along in places where they ware never intended to run, and huge pools of water at assay of tha crossings, which latter ware the cause of many wet feet, and sundry ruffling* of tamper not at all pro per. Tha weather yesterday morning was essentially disagreeable, uninviting in its skyward aapeot, and de cidedly repulsive in the view of what had oome from tha clouds; tho omnibuses labored along with each an additional pair of horses, all steaming like locomotives, and slow as tortoises in their pace, and all other vehi cles seemed as if an embargo nad bean laid upon their progress. [From the Newark Adv., Fab. 90 ] Tha third snow storm of the season oommencod hare laat night about 11 o'clock, with a stroag north east wind, and continued without intormisaion unt'I 1 o'clock P. M , when it turned to iain. As we go to proas, tho snow must be considerably over a foot deep on a level. The railroads are very much blocked up, of course, but the Philadelphia train, from Jersey City, due here at 9] o'clock passed through about 10| o'clock, having two engines and a capital snow shoo. Tho train from New Brunswick,due here at 9 o'clock, pasted through lor Jer sey City at 19] o'clock. We o( course have no southern mail tut noon. _^i [From tha Albany Citizen, Feb. 19.] It extended over a great surface of oountry, and waa unusually severe everywhere. An immense body of ?now has fallen, covering the earth to an average d-pth of about 18 inches. We notice, by the papers, its depth at the f llowing placet :-Hartford, Conn, It to 90 inches on a level ; New Haven, do.; Norwich and Ston iagton, 18 inches ; Boston, Mass., 18 do.; Worooetar, Mass., 90 do.; Springfield, Mass., do. ; Sohenectady 14 do. ; Saratoga 98 do.; Utica, Syracuse and Rochester, about 80 do.; Batavia 94 do. ; Geneva 98 do.; Boflale 18 to 18 do. [From the 8yracute Daily Journal.] Tha whole country is buried beneath an avalanche of ?now, which tell from the clouds, principally during tha morning of Sunday, the 1Mb intt. The storm commenced on Saturday evening, about an hour before midnight; end tboee who were up to attand tha railroad trains, at 4 o'clock the next morning,state there waa then seme aix inches of snow on the ground Between that hour a ad 9 o'clock, tho snow fell to rapidly, that it had accumu lated to the depth of two foot.! A heavier fall of anew, within the same time, was never known. After 8 or 10 o'clock, the storm abated, and by ona had ceased alto gether. The entire depth of snow which foil within a period of fourteen hours, was net lest then twenty-eight inches, [which is our measurement.) whilst most per sons estimate it at two feet and a half. This is an avarage of two inches per hour during the whole storm, whilst in ordinary forms the fail is not over en ioch per hour. We are told that during the thickest of the storm, alter daylight, the suow fell seven inches in an hour and a half! Wo cannot vouch for t< is at a fact, but it must have come down at very near this rata, at the height of the storm. Of course, we are in a state et blockade. No train from the east hss made ite appearance since Satur day night, bsfore the commencement of tho storm. A locomotive ran over the Auburn road Sunday evening, bat it had no connexion beyond. Fortunately, there ia no wind. The enow is very light and dry, and had there been a gala, tha consequences might nova bono dreadful. [From the Cincinnati Commercial, Fab. 18.] Our distant readers are informed that on Saturday last, this place was visited with tha heaviest anow storm of tha season. The anow was from eight to too laches deep in the morning, but followed with rain towards noon, which settled it down considerably. Wa ob served that it snowed at Louisville, and other places, at tha same time. Its melting will raise tha streams. Bowery Amphitheatre! Levi North 11?
