The following from American Note and Quarries is an interesting account of the lignillcation of tho mime of each month of the year: January is of Latin origin, from the word Januiiiiiis, named in honor of the god Janus, to whom this Bcusjn of the year was sacred. February was introduced by Numa Pampilus. The Latin word, Kobruurius is derived from Februm, which is of Sa bine origin, according to Nnrco, and means "purgative;" lionce comes the noun Februrn, which signified tho Ro man festival of lustration nnd expiation, celebrated on the 15th of the mouth, culled, in consequence, Fohruury , March Is named in honor of Mars, the Roman god of war. April, which the part of tho year in which the buds appear and the whole earth apparently opens, derived its nnme from Aperire, which menus to open. May is a name the origin of which we owe to the Romans, In honor of Maria, the mother of Morcury and daughter of Atlns, June is a name that all will readily think of when they read tha hlnlory of the untitle Juno, in till month liu teemed, from ull account, It) be greatly worHiiippett.
