The Weather. — During the present week we have had in this neighbourhood frequent strong gales of wind, and an unusual quantity of rain. The weather has once or twice promised to take up and turn to a frost, but such prospects have only been of short duration. We now frequently hear very old people remark that they cannot remember so wet a January on the whole as this has been. The winter on the whole thus far has been of a very open character, and judging from the number of deaths that have taken place, we are inclined to say it is rather healthy than otherwise. At least no serious results have attended its course yet.
