EXCESSIVE COLD.—AnOther fall of
snow took place on Sunday night, which as
the roads were previously smoth and icy
very much improved the sleighing. The
weather however is so iftensely cold as to
make it we suspect rather an uncomfortable
enjoyment. - Yesterday was probably, the col
dest day we have yet had this winter. Sev
eral accidents happened last weQk to sleigh
ing parties, such as running-off ofhorses and
the over turning ofsleighs with their fair oc- .
.but in no case attended with vevy
serious personal injur.

(INF:S.—W . O are not in the•haffit of' reeoMen
ding Quack medicines, nor do we propose to
begin now. Most of the nostrums trlvertised
.are made by ignorant pretenders to medical
skill; they generally profess to cure all di
seases, or nearly all that flesh is heir to.—
but the ease is widely different, when a phy
sician .of high standing, whose knowledge
and shill in his proffssion arc beyond dis
pute, offers remedies for precise ailments for
general use. Such is the case with Dr.
Clintorks Miqirines, it list of which
will be found in our columns. • Pr. MeClin
tuck was for many years a Professor in one
of the Medical Colleges upon the various
branches of medical science. In Morbid
Anatomy he is perhaps unrivalled, as no
physician of the age has dissected the-human
body more frequently than he. The remedies T
which he offers artthe resnit Of thirty yehrs'
of practice, :tbservatim,, and study- ; and
eaeh is prpared for the disease to which
it is specially adapted. In especialy those'
parts of the country where it is difficult to
obtain promptly the aid of a physician in ca
ses of disease, we should, think it wise and
prudent to have on hand Dr. Meelintocks
remedies. A timely use of them might ward
off dangerous disease, or be the means of
saving life.
