Courier, of a recent date, says there is at this time a man residing in that town, an Irishman, whose grandfather died some years ngo at the age of ninety-nine. During his life he had been the husband of five wives, by -whom he became the father of thirty-seven children. Thirty-two were sons, and of these, thirty-one enlisted in the army. The thirty-second, who did not enlist, occupies a situation in the iron foundry in Eotherdam, and is the father of a large family. One of the daughters, aged 4G, lives in London, and is the mother of twenty-four childien. It is said at Baltimore, that in case Symms is returned to the South, there will be half a dozen arrests in Boston, of negroes who fled from this State. The proper papers and witnesses are ready. The stockholders of the Pacific Kail- road Company have approved of the proposi- tion of the Board of Directors, to locate and commence constructing about 45 miles of the road immediately. The postmaster at St. Louis has given out that, "persons calling for letters will please bring with them dimes and half dimes, as I find it impossible to furnish change for the whole community." Small change must be scarce there. C3T Francis Tigg, of Indiana, has run away from Mrs. Pigg and four little Piggs. Oh, the great hos!

The Day Book speaks thus of his acting: Ltat night we had the genuine pleasure of witnessing the Macbeth of this artist, at the National. Mr. Booth is still in admi- rable possession of those intense and vivid powers of conception and delineation, which make his representation of human passion much more electric than those of any other artist of the century. It was not only a pro- found delight in itself, but a deeply interesting study by contrast, to watch the unexpected and startling yet always true und simple means by which his immense effects upon the imagination and power over the heart are produced. OLD TIMKS' IGC-i, the cold was so intense that the Thames was covered with ice sixty-one inches thick. Almost all the birds perished. 1691 the cold was so ex- cessive that the famished wolves entered' Vienna and attacked beasts, and even men. Many people in Germany were frozen to death in 1G94, and the winters of 1C97 and 1GD9 were nearly as bad. In 1709 occurred that famous winter called, by distinction, the cold winter. All the rivers and lakes were frozen, and even the sea for several miles 1-ri'ditnex. s-ri'inin-' for all the world from the shore. 1 he ground was irozen nine tliu wake d M.me fairy barque, whose, lbet and beftgtg were ,-aiU wire purple, and whose prow was beaten dead in the fields, and men perished by thou- sands in their houses. In the south of France the wine plantations were almost all destroy- ed nor have they yet recovered that fatal disaster. The Adriatic sea was frozen, and even the Mediterranean, about Genoa, and the citron and orange groves suffered ex- tremely, in the finest parts of Itally. In 1716 the winter was so intense that people travelled across the straits from Copenhagen to the province of Senia in Sweden. In 1729, in Scotland, multitudes of cattle and sheep were buried in the snow. In 1740 tlftj winter was scarcely inferior Ip that of 1709. The snow lay ten feet deep in Spain and The Zuyder Zee was frozen over, and thou- sands of people went over it; and the lakes in England froze. In 1744 the winter was very cold. Snow fell Portugal to the depth of twenty-three feet on a level. In 1754 and 1755 the winters were very severe cold. In England, the strongest ale, exposed to the air in a glass, was covered in 15 min- utes with ice one-eighth of an inch thick. In 1771 the Elba was frozen to the bottom. In 1776 the Danube bore ice five feet deep be- low Vienna. Vast numbers of the feathered tmd finny tribes perished. The winters of 1784 and 1785 were un- commonly severe. The Little Belt was fro- zen over. From 1800 to 1812 also, the winters were remarkably cold, particularly the latter in Russia, which proved so disas- trous to the French army. Mns.
