The Continued Cold Weather.?
The cold weather of the past week
continues, and last night was oue of
the wildest ever experienced in this
latitude. Yesterday afternoon the
keen northwest wind lulled somewhat,
and hopes were expressed that the
backbone of the blizzard was broken,
but between live and six o'clock a san"
disappointment followed, and old
Boreas let go for all he was worth.
The heavy gusts picked up the snow
and sentit in clouds through the streets,
around corners and up iu the air in I
Bpiral columns and down the necks of
those whose collars were not turned
up. A few people compelled to be out
moved hastily and all who could wend
cd their ways to their homes where
they remained until tnorniog. The
weather continued to grow colder aud
the wind to roar more fiercely, and by
dark the howling blizzard was being
severely felt and heard. The wind
blew great guns as if from a field of
icebergs, and all who could hugged
tiuir firesides and listened with no
little apprehension to the roar of the
elements, which seemed to have been
given loose rein. The sky was cloudy
and appeared to be snow-laden,
and there would have been no disap?
pointment had (ive or six more inches
of snow been found this morning upon
tbe two layers already on the ground.
The Streets were deserted by man and
beast, and house dogs crouched in door?
ways and under steps, while cats clawed
on doors for admission from the pitiless
blasts, Auer midnight the wiud seem?
ed to have gathered additional strength,
and its roarings became terrific, causing
many who could not sleep to keep un
willing vigils. The long, dismal night
finally ended aud the morning broke
upou the same snow-covered earth, but
frozen much harder and the old Poto?
mac solid enough for an ox cart to
cross upon its surface. About every
other hydrant was frozen and windows
looked as though they had been glazed
with blocks of ice. The wiud was
blowing almost as liercely as ever, and
it was generally supposed the mercury
was dowu to a lower stage than at any?
time during the winter, but such was
not the case, some indicating I0a above
zero and others 8?. People forced to
be out had experiences similar to those
of yesterday, the mists of winds nearly
taking them Jrom their feet, whiie
bliuding snow flew thick and fast iu
every direction. Many pavements
which had been cleared yesterday were
blocked again during the day by the
wiud hurling snow from ore section to
another. In the afternoon the wind
moderated perceptibly aud milder
weather will doubtless follow by to?
morrow. At 3:30 o'clock this afternoon
the mercury registered IS0.
Tiik Trains.?Two trains on the
Southern road which arrived here yes?
terday and were held at this city on
account of the snow block left for
Washington at 5 and 5:10 yesterday
evening. They succeeded in reaching
thai city after much difficulty.
The W. S. train from the south due
yesterday morning at IO.l'S aud which
did not reach here until after 3 o'clock
in the evening, remained until 10
o'clock last night when it proceeded to
Washington, which city it reached after
several hours' delay.
This morning a train on the W? S.
road arrived- here from (Juantico at
8:30 aud proceeded to Washington.
This was followed by several othir
trains of the Southern and C. & O.
roads, all of which, though having two
or three euuines attached, were several
hours in reaching Washington.
A train was sent from Washington
this way at 9:10 o'clock this morning
and was" followed by another at 9:35.
The latter was to do local busiuess be?
tween this city and Washington and to
take back to "Washington the through
passengers who had been detained here
since yesterday morning. These trains
did not reach this city until after 12
o'clock to-day, having been detained by
heavy suow drifts at the Long bridge
causeway. These were the first trains
to reach this city from Washing on
siuce 2:30 o'clock on Friday morning.
One of them went on to Quautico.
The train from Florida on the South?
ern road, due here at 7:?0 this morn?
ing, arrived at 10:10 this morning aud
]oft for Washington at 10:45.

O. road or on theManassas road.
A W. S. train, which left here at
5:30 yesterday evening, became stalled
in the snow ou Henry street near Col
ross and was delayed there till 10
o'clock last night. It. took five engines
to moye the train which, after being
ieleased. wentou to Washington.
All the overdue trains of the C. & O.
road have arrived, some of them being
only a few hours late. They report
the most serious obstructions just
this side of Manassas. They were all
sent northward to t?ke their chances
in getting through the blockade uear
aud on the Long Bridge.
All the trains to leave this city to?
day were run from the Southern Kail
way depot, as the W. S. tracks between
this city and St. Asaph were coveted
with snow,
j No fre ght trains have been run on
any of the roads, centering at this city,
for the past two days and uli local pas?
senger trains to and from the South
have been virtually abandoned.*
The railroad officials are experiencing
much difficulty in keeping the tracks
clear, even after they are opened, as the
higli winds blow the snow in every di?
rection and cause heavy drifts. Much
difficulty is also found in getting men
to work in the cold.
Nearly all the men in the Southern
Railway shops, in this city?about (55 in
number?in charge of* Mr. C. F.
Thomas, were yesterday evening sent
to Bloomsgrove, between Manassas and
Clifton, to clear the snow blockade there
and to relieved the C. & 0. and other
trains that had been snowbound there.
They succeeded in doing so*nd return?
ed to this city this morning at 0 o'clock.
The train on which they left this city
went on south.
About 175 men from Wilmington,
Del., were sent here last night to dear
Henry street track, which they did
from Duke street to Colross.
The engine and train which was
snowed up near St. Asaph on Thurs?
day night, is still theie.
The mails from the Manassas road
due here yesterday arrived this morn?
ing. The train that was blockaded be?
tween Marshall and The Plains reached
Manassas and the mails were sent here
by a through southern train.
The train on the W. & O. road, which
was snowed up at Herndon yesterd ty,
reached here at 1 o'clock to-day, assist?
ance having been sent from this city.
The passengers were taken from the
W. ?fc O. depot to the Midland depot in
carriages and sent to Washington.
Four C. & O. trains were snow-bound
at Manassas yesterday and the passen?
gers had to be accommodated at that
place. Farm bouses in the neighbor?
hood had to be visited for the purpose
of procuring provisions for the pas?
One of the worst points the railroad
men have to pass is withiu the city
limits near Colross. As fast as the
suow is cleared away the wind blows
it back on the track and but few trains
pass that point without trouble.
The railroad men think the worst is
over and hope by to-morrow to have
the trains running with something like
Trains from the south, on all the
roads, somewhat delayed, have been
arriving during tlio evening, and are
sent on to Washington as last as cir?
cumstances will allow. All come into
the Southern depot and are sent north
on the Henry street track.
tip to 3 o'clock three local trains bail
left here for Washington?one at S:30
a. in., one at 9:15 a. m and one at

tween Washington aud New York bud
been abandoned.
At 1 o'clock to-day the first mail from
the North to arrive here Juce Thurs?
day evening at 4 o'clock reached tin
postoflice. There wus a great mass ot
mail matter and the clerks were kei t
busy distributing it.
Thb Minstrels.?The Hi Henry
Minstrels arrived to-day and gave a
parade about 12:30. People crowded
to see them aud hear the mutic whiih
was fine. They appear at the Opeia
House to-night. The Danville Register
says of the performance : "Many people
in the large audience last night declai
ed that Hi Henry's company is the
best mioistrel aggregation on the road.
This company came highly recommend?
ed and the people expected a good per
formaoce, but they were hardly look?
ing for the almost faultless exhibition
they were treated to. The band is
probably tbe best that was ever seen in
Danville. The singers were very good,
and the many other features, most of
them entirely new, go to make up one
of the best and most refined minstrel
performances this community has ever
The Staunton Post says: A better mio?
istrel performance has never been seen
here than that given at the Opera
House this week by Hi Henry and his
company. The audience testified its ap?
preciation by frequent laughter and ap?
plause, encoring nearly all the special?
ties. Tbe stage mounting, costuming
and accessories were rich and elegant
and the programme throughout was
smooth and uniformly rendered.
The Biver.?For the first time in
I two years and for the second time in
many, navigation ou the river is com?
pletely suspended and the Potomac to?
day is covered with ice from shore to
shore, varying in thickness from four to
eight inches and extends far below
Maryland Point.
The Norfolk steamer which passed
up the river about 12 o'clock yesterday
did not start on her return trip as was
intentled. The other Norfolk steamer
which-left here Thursday night and
which later anchored near Maryland
Point, reached Norfolk yesteiday even?
ing but did not leave that port last
night on her return trip.
One of the Norfolk steamers was to
have come here to-day for the purpose
of taking on freight and of atte'mpting
t > make a pathway through the ice.
It was found, however, that thesteamtr
was aground and could not be golton
out of her dock in Washington.
The tug Brewerton has been making
occasional trips between this city and
Shepherd's to-day, trying to keep a
track open so as to be able to run tbe
railroad transfer barge when freight
trains, which have been practically an?
nulled in this section, commence Tun?
ing again.
The tides, owing to tbe northwest
gales which have prevailed for the past
few days are very low and most of the
steamers and other vessels in the docks
here are resting on tbe bottom.
The Poor.?The numerous calls
made by the poor of the city on the
ladies of the relief committee have ex?
hausted their means and they are now
unable to relieve any more demands.
Since last report they haye received
$7 from Mr. Harry Burke and $5 from
Mr. M. B. Harlow. The ladies made
the money go as far as possible in re?
lieving the destitute and now lind
themselves without further means for
that purpose. They have done a no?
ble work.
Mr. H. C. Price, "watchman at the
Driving Park, had his ears' badly frozen
1 while walking home "yeste*rdiy.

caught in the machinery. His arm was
drawn in above the elbow and the flesh

aud Dr. O'Brien .summoned, who upon
Iiis arrival, found that the ilesh had
been fearfully lacerated from the band

Domestic stuffs, such as sheetings and
bleached muslins, were never lower than at
present. The very best makes of sheetings
can now be procured at prices as low as infe?
rior goods formerly cost. There has also
been a material reduction in many leading
brands of bleached muslinsj cambrics, etc.
Our first instalment of New Spring Per?
cales is now open. The styles are very at?
We still continue our bargain sale of Win?
ter Dress Stuffs, and the remarkable values
have made them ready sellers. Nearly three
months yet for the use of a winter wrap, and
this is a rare opportunity to obtain one at a
nominal cost.
Special attention is called to our line of
ready-made sheets and pillow cases. Excel?
lent values. The cost for finishing is just a
fl^*one price *^ir
Is a pleasant thing ; there are
high teas, pink teas, 5 o'clock
teas, that celestial thinks he
has a good tea and there is no
reason why you should not
have a good tea also. Good
green teas are very hard to get
this season. I mean really
good teas. I have succeeded,
after no little effort, in getting
the large stock that is required
to supply my tea trade for the
crop year. You know that for
27 years I have sold the best
teas, and though good teas
cost more this year than for
several years past, I have not
lowered my standard. In fact,
I think my 50c tea is better
than ever. My best green tea
is just what it purports to be,
the very best.
Then those nice black teas
and that superb cevlon tea,
that is getting to be the fash?
Recollect that I give better
tea at less cost than any one
