DURING the first week of December the Thermometer never sunk to the freezing point. On the night of the 8th it stood at 24b; on the 9th at 23}; and on the 10th at 9. Be.. tween the 10th and 10th the frost was more moderate, though uninterrupted ; but on that day the weather became open, and continued so till the 21st. On that night the thermometer stood at 29, and the frost continued till the end of the month. During this period the greatest depression of temperature took place on the 26th and 30th, the former being 16, and the latter 14. The consequence of this continued frost is, a considerable de. pression in the mean temperature of the month, which is about six degrees lower than December last year. The mean height of the Barometer is about a tenth below the annual average, and the mean daily range a little greater. The greatest depression of the mercury took place during the fresh weather about the middle of the month, accompanied by a fall of rain amounting to one inch. On the 10th the ground was covered with snow to the depth of 6 inches. A second fall took place on the 28th, amounting to 3 inches, and a third on the evening of the 29th. The Hydrometer frequently indicated complete saturation ; and the hoar frost was at times very heavy. The mean of the extreme temperatures is again lower than that of 10 and 10. The greatest depression of temperature generally took place about 8 in the evening.
