Salubrious Weather – During the whole of the last and thus far in the present week, the temperature has ranged from 14 degrees below to 25 degrees above zero. It has not at any time thawed in the shade. The snow is abundant, but somewhat drifted. So long a period of such uninterrupted extreme cold, has, we believe, seldom been known, evening in this latitude.
