THE COLD WEATHER. There ia an old weather saw, which we believe even meteorologists acknowledge to be at least probable, to the eflfeot that Thunder in spring oold will bring." We have had thunder this spring, and now we suppose we are paying the penalty for that imprudence. March was, it we remember aright, a fairly dusty month; anyone sufficiently curious might have oollecled the proverbial peck of duet, "wortl1 a king's ran- som." But if the present weataer be valuable at a king's ransom, give us a beggar's bail rather. We might be worse off, though; a hundred years ago June found part of the oountry under anow, over a foot deep on Shap fells. It is to be hoped that the weather has no regard tor oentenaries. But we are hard to please. The spring this year was late, but when it did oome it was rarely beautiful. A snap ot ooldish weather wipes out all our gratitude. Optimistic persons say there is a poet con- cealed in everyone; 08, binly. there is a British farmer concealed in every Englishman. We take the good weather when it oomes only half oonsoious of it, but we are acutely ana bitterly oonsoious of the bad weather. This is wrong morally, and it it is also unhealthy. A man need not be a pantheist to tind beauty of some kind in all conditions of the weather, though it may be freely admitted that some weathers are more convenient than others. But we are too dependent on roofs and walla nawaday*. We are terrified of a oold wind, rain aeema to as an external poison. Houses have made us, to use an expressive word, neeh and a cloud eenda us running into a room. Still, it may be said, when it comes t) frokt nipping treasurable bulbs in June, we humanb are not the only creatures that feel inclemency And we confess that if we could not see thr leaves turned to living emeralds in proper Juut sunshine, we should forget all our noble sen timents, forget the required gratitude, and remember merely that we had sommonable weather at last-
