Black Sea frozen over for twenty days. 4ti2. The Danube was frosen so that on army erossed on the ice. 70S. The Black .Sea and Straits of the Lardenellos were frozen over. 822. Tho Danube, Kibe, and Seine were frozen so hard as to hear heavy wag ons for a month. 1035. A frost in England on mid-sum mer's day Wits so violent that it destroyed the fruits of the earth. ll '3. The Po was frozen from Cre iminia to tho «oa. AVinp ii1r« worn Imrsf and trees split by the action of the frost, with immense noise. 1230. The Danube was frozen to the bottom, ami remained so for a long time. 1201. The C'atej^it was frozen from Norway to Jutland. 1344. All the rivers of Italy were fro zen over. 1403. The wolves were driven by the cold from Denmark, and crosscd the ice to Jutland. 1434. It snowed for forty days without interruption. 140S. The wine distributed to the sol diers in Flanders was cut iu pieces with hatchets. 1021-22. All the rivers of Europe were frozen, and the Zuvder Zee, the Hellespont, were covered with a sheet of ice, and the and the Venetian licet was frozen up in the lagoons of the Adriatic. K»5S. Charles X. of Sweden, crossed from llolstein to Denmark with his whole army, foot, horse, baggage and artillery.— The rivers in Italy bore heavy carriages. I0U4. The Thames, in England, was covered with icy 'rtij-one inches thick almost all the birds perished. 1084. The oaks were split in England, and coaches drove along the Thames. lGyi. The same thing occurred, the fam ished wolves attacking men and beasts iu the streets of Vienna. 170(j. Occurred that famous winter called by distinction the cold winter. All the rivers and lakes were frozen, and even the sea for several miles from the shore*— The ground was frozen in England nine feet deep. Birds and Beasts were struck dead in the fields, and men perished by thousands in their houses. In the south of France, the olive trees were killed, and the wine plantations mostly destroyed.— The Adriatic sea was frozen, and even the Mediterranean about ticnoa the citron and orange groves sutl'ered extremely in the finest parts of Italy. 1710. l'he winter was so intense that people traveled across the straits from Copenhagen to the provineo of Scnia, in Sweden. Fairs were held on the river Thames. 1720. In Scotland, multitudes of cattle and sheep were buried in the snow. 1737. In January the ground iu New England 1 rozc four ifcet deep. 1740. An ox was roasted whole upon the Thames. The winter was scarcely in ferior to that of 1709. The snow lay ten feet deep in Spain and Portugal. Tho Zttyder Aee was frozen over, and thousands of people went over it and the lakes in England were frozen over. During the hard frost, a palace was built of ice at St. Petersburg, after an elegant model, and in the just proportions of Augustan architec ture. 1744. Snow fell in Portugal to the depth of twenty-three feet on the level. This was a summer winter in New England, according to Parson Smith's Journal. 1753-55. The winters were very severe. In England the strongest ale exposed to the air in glass was covered with ice one eighth of au inch thick. These were very mild winters in New England. See Smith's Journal. 1771. The Elbe was frozon to tho bot tom. 1776. The Danube bore ice five feet thick below Vienna. Vast numbers of the feathered and Jinny tribes perished. In Holland and France wine froze in the cellars. 1796. Perhaps tho coldest day ever known in London was December 25th, 1790, when the thermometer was 16° be low zero. From 1800 to 1812. The winters were remarkably cold, particularly tho latter in Russia, which surpassed in intenseness that of any winter in that country for many preeeeding years, and caused the destruction of the French arm}' in its re treat from Moscow. AVhat with the loss in battle, and the fleets of this awful and calamitous frost, France lost in the cam paign of this year, more than 400/ 00 men. Iu some parts of Now England thother- inomctcr stood at 39 and 4)° and the day was known its the "Cold Tuesday.'1 l£56. Jan. ]U the thcrinometer in Bos ton was 5° below zero at sunrise.

A trustworthy gentleman gives us an ac count of an extraordinary illness of a young woman—a Miss Winsor in Provi detvv. li. 1.—quite similar in many of its features to the phenomenal case in Urook 1 VII which we have published in detail.— Miss W. has been confined to her bed for sfvcral months, and has not partaken of sufficient nourishment to keep her alive if she had been in a normal condition. Yet her faculties have beci^ne strangely acute, aiul she seems to be endowed with a spe cies of second sight. When the physician, Dr. Barrow, calls on her, she can tell the number of visits he has made, the numbers of the houses of his patients, and describe accurately their complaints. I The clock having been removed from her chamber she wtts enabled to determine at any hour the exact time of day or right, and she would describe the color, size aud marks of the doctor's horse and the hue and the texture of the linings of his car riage. She composed a poem which she i called the Sea Serpent, one-half of each i line in Latin aud the rest in English, which was pronounced by the professors of Brown 1 University pure Latin, although she had never had the least instruction in the language. She also draws finely without having taken lessons, and doe* other ex traordinary things not to be accounted for by any of the known laws of temperament, niedieitje or science. While asleep her right arm is constantly in motion, though it is perfectly powerless when she is awake. A number of the physicians and savans of Providence are deeply interested in the case of Miss Winsor, and are endeavoring to solve the mystery of her soemintr super natural powers.—-.V. 1'.

DAD MORTON'S BEST.—Uncle Mortonr, better known at Hyde's, in Sudbury, Vt., as "Dad," is a famous story-teller, in both senses of the word, for he not only tells many, but they are general!v of the most Munchausenish kind.

The old critter kept her sittin', and in three weeks I heerd a little 'peep.'— Then I put my ear to the spigot, when the peeping growed liko a swarm of bees. I did'nt say anything to the folks about the hatchin'. for they'd all the time told me I was a fool, but lbs next mornin' I knocked the head out of the barrel, and covered the barn He,or, two feet deep, all over with lit tle chickings.
