afier the editorship of the press expired i

in the bg of Allen, when no itago-coac!
bad been atopped by highwaymen, when
no conjuring congregation bad been diapers

made hit entry with a long train of eoatiV.
and. aix, when no lord or poet had been bur
led in the Abbey, and when, consequently,
it was difficult to fill up four scanty pages,"
then tho editors supplied n leading article.

OCT A correspondent of the Rational
Inteltiyenccr says that tho Mississippi river
(lid not "freczo throughout its entire
length" this winter, as has been represent
ed. Il was open for navigation during the
entire winter from Memphis to New Or
leans. Souin (lonling ico was to bo seon
on it as low down as B.-iyou Sara ; perhaps
small quantities as low down as Baton
Kongo. It was formed on tho banks, at
tho water's edgo, in small quantities, as low
down as Natchez, perhaps as low down as
tho mouth of Kud River. To this extent,
no more, did tho Mississippi lllvor "freeze
throughout its ctiliro length. The sanm
thing has occurred in previous years.

writing from Washington, thus speaka of
tho improvement! of the Capitol :
"The new dome Intended lo surmount

necessary by reason of ibo extension of that

colling every thing of tho kind in tl.lscoun
