The year 1816 was known through out the United States and Europe as the coldest ever experienced in this latitude. Very few persons now liv ing can recollect it. The following is a brief summary of the weather during the year ; January and Feb- | ruary were mild ; March was cold ; ' April began warm but ended in | snow nnd ice. Ice formed an imb ) thick tn May, and fiel is were plan ed j over and over and over again till it j was too late to replant. June was the coldest ever known , in this latitude. Frost and ) ice were common. Almost every J green thing was killed ; fruit nearly , all destroyed. Snow fell to the depth of tea inches in Vermont, * seven in Maine, three in the interior of New Y. rk, and also in Massachu setts Tln-re were a few warm days. All c.asres looked for th m in that memorable cold summer 67 years ago. It was called a diy season. But little rain fell. The wind blew steadily from the north, cold and fierce. Mo'hers ki it extra socks and mittens for their children in the •r ring, and woo Ipil a that usually disappeared during the warm spell in front of the houses were speedily built up again, p.ai ting Hid shivering were done together, and the farmers who worked out their 1 taxes on the country roads wore over- ; coats and mittens. In a town in Ver- j mont a flock ol i heep belonging to a ; farmer had bean sent as usual to j their pasture. On the 17th of June a heavy snow fell; the cold w s in tei.se, and the owuer started at noon to look for hie she-p. "Better start the neighbors after ms soon, wife,” ha said in jest, before leaving; "being the middle of June, I may gut lost in i ihe snow," Night came; the storm; increased, and he did not return. The next morning the family sent out for help, and started in search. One after another the neighbors turn ed out to look for the missing mao. The snow had covered up all tracks, and not until the third day did they find him on the side cf a hill with both feet frozen, unable to move. A farmer who had a large field of corn in Tewksbury built fires around it at night to ward off the frost; many an evening he and bis neighbors took i turns watching them. He was re- I warded with the only crop of corn in | the neighborhood. Considerable dam- I age was done in New Orleans inconse quence of the rise of the Mississippi river ; the suburbs were covered with j water, and the roads were only pass- I able in boats. Fears were entertain ed that the sun was cooliug off, and throughout New England all pio-nics were strictly prohibited. July was accompanied with frost and ice. On the fifth, ice was formed ; to the thickness of common window | glass throughout New England, New York and some parts of Pennsylvania. < Indian corn was nearly all destroyed ; some favoably situated fields escaped. This was true of some of the bill farms in Mass icbnsetts. August wan more cherries*, if possi ble, than the summer months which preceded Ire w T as formed half an in h in thickness. Indian corn was s frozen that the g eater part was cm. down and dried for fodder. Almoss every grei-n thing was destroyed in this country and Eurcpe. On the 30ih, snow fell at Barnet, forty miles from London. Newspapers received f om Eoglan 1 slated ‘‘that R, would he remembered by the present generation that the yetr 1816 was a year in which there was no slimmer.” Very little corn ripene 1 in New England and the Middle Slates. Farmers supplied themselves from corn produce of 1815, for seel in the spring of 1817. It mid at Iron l four to five dollars per Imshe!. September funlisted about two i weeks of the pleasante.it weather ol ihe season, but in the latter part ol the month ice formed an inch thick. October had more than its share ol cold weather. In Europe the summer was cold and raiay, and in France and else where price* of provisions rose to double tbe usual figure. November was cold and snowy. December was comfortable and the winter following was mild. Frost and ioe were com mon in every month of the year. Very little vegetation was mature! in the Eastern and Middle States. The sun's rays seemed to he destitute of beat during the summer; all na ture wan clad in nahle hue ; an i men exhibited no little anxiety concern ing the future of this life. The average price of llonr during the year, in tbe New York market, was thirteen dollars per barrel. The 1 average price of wheat in Eng ; land was ninety-seven shilling* per I quarter. Broad-riots occured through out Great Britain in 1817, in conse quence of tbe h'gh prices of the stafl cf life. Harvard College —At a recent meeting ot the overseers of Harvard College, a discussion was held upon a resolution which had been lefore the hoard for several weeks, that in the opinion of this hoard, Ihe statutes i making attendance on morning pray ers a'd other religions exercises coot ' pulsory, should he repealed The ■ ho,aid by a strong vole, re ure i .n adopt the resolution. But Mi. Ge rge ShifT-r, lately ire in Martins iuirgh, B ai.'Cu . Pi., who Lad a Can eeroi.s growth on his note, n i who was advised ro use of Benina before a visit to a Cancer Hospital, was al lowed to take that par-txoel ent rem edy, and by its na. for a very shor t time, was cured completely—pa ;e 21 in tho ‘ Ills of Li e”—get cne from ytur druggist. The Rev. Newman Hall, who once published a very popular tract called “Come to Je-us,” to k another—i very bitter stark upon an opponent —to Dr. Binney, a clerical friend, and asked his advice about publishing it. ‘‘l seeyou haven’t got a title for il," I said Dr. Binney. “If you will accept my adviie about a title I will advim its publication.” ‘■What title would you give it?” ark ad Hall. "I would call it," answered Binney, “ ‘Go to the Devil,’ by the author of ! ‘Come to Jtsus.’ " Hall tore it up then and there. Prof. T. A. Edison has, it is claimed, perfected a lamp that can he used in coal mines. The light is de rived from the burning of carbonized bamboo, which is encksed in an air tight gffiss bulb, and connected with the wire through a copper covering which is hermetically sealed. As will be readily seen il is an imposai- I bility for the mine gas to become ig | nited by this light,for it is burned in a : vacuum and will be much safer, there fore, than the Davy safety lamp.
