STEINBERG, Watchmaker and Jeweler The worst cold blizzard thut has been experienced for many years swept over a wide extent of country last Thursday night, Friday ami Saturday, the wind blowing at Ult ra te of 7fi or more miles an hour In many places, accompanied with driving snow. The mercury here did not drop as low as it has been known, by ten or fifteen degrees, novating around one or two above or below zero, but on account of the heavy wind the cold was felt most intensely. In many parts of the country great damage was done and much suffering was occasioned. (round hog day dawned lirlgb'. and clear last Tuesday, and as that little hibernating animal to which superstition accredits groat wisdom in forecasting the weather, came forth from his burrow to take observations, lie gazed upon his shadow, and fortwlth retired to the solitude of bis hole for another six weeks to await the passing of winter. There are a lot of people who dojiot oelleve this superstition that If the sun shines on the 2d day of Febuary we will have six weeks more of winter, but the observation of The Times' forecaster is, that in this climate at least it is true nine times out of ten, extending frequently to eight or ten weeks; and he has also observed that the same Is true whether the ground hogs sees his shadow or it is cloudy on that day.
