"Old Boroas" got loose yesterday,
and made quito a blow. It would
not surprise us if February and
March havo agreed to exchange
places this year.
On account of the failure of the
Columbia Register to reach us yes

readers of the doings of the Legis

their valuable paper irrogularly, we
would probably not often have any
ground to complain.

was forwardod from this place to
