THE frost that set in towards the latter end of December continued with increasing severity during the first four days of January. During the first night of the month, the thermometer sunk to 14, and on the 2d, to 104. From the 5th to the 9th, it was more moderate ; and on the 10th, the temperature of the day rose to 40ų, the lowest during the night being 36. After the 12th, the frost became more severe than at any former period, and continued till the 22d. On the morning of the 18th the thermometer stood at Zero, and did not rise higher than 11ļ till very late in the evening. In the neighbourhood of the river the temperature was observed about 10 degrees below Zero, probably the greatest degree of cold ever experienced in this country. After the 17th, the thermometer sunk repeatedly to 5, and on the last night of the frost it was at 12. From the 23d to the end of the month, the thermometer rose to 40 or upwards every day. The State of the barometer during the month was as extraordinary as that of the thermometer. From the 1st to the 9th, it rose gradually, every day, with one slight exception ; and on the morning of the 9th, stood at the very unusual height of 30.835. This was at 10; but an hour before, it was at 30.845, and in all probability had been higher during the night. Making allowance for the elevation of the place, it must have been as high as 31.015 inches at the level of the sea, a height altogether unexampled perhaps in this climate. During the next nine days, the barometer sunk almost as gradually as it had risen ; and on the morning of the 19th, two days after the greatest depression of temperature, it stood at 28.830, being 2 inches lower than at its greatest elevation. The mean temperature of January is nearly 7į degrees lower than that of January last year, the mean of Leslie's hygrometer is one degree lower, and the mean relative humidity exactly the same. The quantity of evaporation is one-third less than last year.
