The following view of the temperature of past Feb bruaries, vve extract from the Philadelphia enivg Kew: " - Ev The old Februaries since 190, have been those of 1809, 1815,,183I,: 1836, 1838. while last year, the atmosphere was by no means mild. We will take them up in order 'Tor--dc-tails.,1 : . ,": "- : '" In?iS09, the medium temperature was twenty-six degrees ; the Delaware clo-ed with ice during the first week, and for several miles below-the City. The mercury was several morn ings hi succession several degrees in some ca ses eleven and twelve degrees below . zero. On, th 2.7th of the month, the merchants em ployed a great number of men to cut the ire from Pine street wharf to Gloucester Point, in order tdet out of port several vessels that had been for sime time loaded, and awaiting a break ing up. Severe weather continued until nearly the close of March. - " In February .1815, tho medium temperature was bejow that of 1809, by twenty-four degrees. Almost the entire month wasuiflnsely cold. On several mornwigs the mercury was twelve de grees belo zero There was also considerable snow on the "Earth, when the month opened, while several storms occurred before its close. The sii0w was deep everywhere, North and East as welPas West. The Delaware river, which closed for the second time in January, remained closed all through. February, and even until the second week in March." Fuel was very scarce and deain Oak' wood sold? in Philadelphia at 14 a cordTwhile hickory "went np"toU and w' t'o.'

Tlie Earth, hereabouts was robed in the wintry white mantle, from the first week in March. It was abroad pretty ! Ireely. too.dunng the whole of that time, from X. sine to Maryland. In some places between these points, it stood in banks of from ten to twenty feet in depth. There was great suffet ing among (he poor, not only for fuel, but for the common necessaries of life. During the month there were also many melancholy ship wrecks. During February 1836, the medium temper ature was twenty-four degrees, down, as will be seen, to that of 1815. From the 2d to the 6th of the month, the mercury ranged from one to ! four degrees below zero. There were besides this, from twelve to fifteen intensely cold days during the month. There was good slei"-hiu- i from 1 :ll HP to irnvnifl I lifrf imn. .'.-t-it heavy snow storms : indeed, it was estimated at the time, if the snow had fallen on a level and remained to the end of the last snow, it would have been from eight to ten feet deep.

During the mouth there was a great deal of very severe weather, and had it not been for the Iceboat, which had then just been introduced, the Delaware would prob ably have been closed the whole month. The average temperature of the month at sunrise was eighteen and a half degrees, which is thir teen and a half below the freezing point. As we have said, February of last year was ah intensely cold month, but it is of too late Occurrence to require any details. I lie most if our readers remember its exact character, Ltiabtfijs. I ' urn (. i . n w n r nr i . , 1 . -1 1 Ti ..1 .nil .1 , 1. , ,11 1 TOO r;xv iui nuiuu ntiiti;inii - uui utii i&dohiv.i: and we have done. Those of 1828 and 1840 are all that we find which particularly demand notice ; we mean, of course, up to the year 1846, later than which period we did not propose in the onset to examine. February, 1828, was au extremely mild one. The weather was indeed more like that of April titan a winter month ; the medium temperature was forty degrees. Apricot and peach trees were in blossom on the 20th, but some frosty nights in March destroyed much of the prom ised fruit. From the 1st to the 6th of February, 1S40, it was intensely cold, the mercury ranging, indeed, from "zero to fifteen above, and the Delaware being closed below Pine street. On the 6th, the wind changed to the South, and the weath er suddenly became very mild. This warm puff from the tropics broke up the ice, and the month continued mild. The present February, as we have said above, opens most brightly, and we .trust it may be a happy mouth for all. The chances are that wc shall have some considerable cold weather. "We can hardly expect to get through the win ter with such a mild atmosphere as has thus far blessed ns. We believe, whatever may come, our people are prepared for it. 2"he times are' a shade better.aud there are many organizations in operation for the relief of the really deserv '."o poor. It is astonishing how little money will answer to help a great many, when this little is judiciously expended. This fact was clearly demonstrated at a meeting in favor of the Episcopal Aid Office, which occurred on Tuesday week at St. Stepheu's Church. Hard ly $900, it appeared, had been appropriated !he present year, and jet it was marvellous to wear ine amount or good flone.

The editor iof l" N,ew Yrk Courier thtia discourses upon one of the advantages of civilization " We have tested the comforts of a night ride of rain, gloom, wild wind, and all that the cause could devise to impress upon a traveller what an invention, what a charniof civilization, thrice refined, it was to roll securely through all this gloom, and in the face, in the scowl of die storm; and while the rain dashed over road aud river, to be borne rapid!y and safely iii a lighted room, and where the thoughts could glide into indo lent perplexity, the very threshold to sleep. " A rainy night in the cars ! That it is which lifts this century high, if not dry, above all others. Where else but in our times, and where else but in lands of the civilized, could the traveller smile at the storm, and find rath er more pleasure from its contrasts than hin drance from its power ? The wanderer over the.jeartli a century or a half century since, would, 'on such a night as this,' have been the personification of a dull despair. lie would have been saturated at the first mile, begrimmed ! at the second, and been introduced, with every prospect of a close acquaintance to consumption and rheumatism at the close of his doleful jour ney. " - . . Duties of Daily Life. Life is not en tirely made of great evils, of heavy trials; but the perpetual recurrence of petty evils iind small '.rials is the ordinary and appoint ed exercise of the Christian graces. To bear with the failings of those-, about us -with their infirmities, their bad judgment, their ill breeding, their perverse tempers to endure neglect when we feel we deserve attention, and ingratitude when we expect thanks to bear with the company of disa greable people whom Providence has placed in our way, and whom lie has provided on purpose for the trial of our virtuethese are the best exercises of patience and self denial, and the better because not chosen by ourselves. To bear with vexation in business, with disappointment in our expec tations, with interruptions of retirement, with folly, intrusion, disturbance in short, with whatever opposes our will, contradicts our humor, this habitual acquiescence ap pears to be more of the essence of self deni al than any little rigors or afflictions of our own. imposing. These constant, evitable, but inferior evils, properly improved, furnish a good moral discipline and might in the days of ignorance.

A correspondent of the Missouri RepnJtlicau writes that last summer he was at Naufo-and conversed with Mr. Bitoman, who is m irried to Joe Smith's widow He says: . I siU at the table with the family, consisting' xdBitortran-and wife, and three sons of Joer bmith; the eldest about twenty-three or twenty four; the second about twenty; the third a lad of some twelvq or thirteen years. From Mr, Iiifoaian, I learned that not one of the family beleived in Mormonism and, that his wife for merly Mrs. Smith- -had always been opposed to it as well as-the boys. I was told that Joe Smith prophesied some two years before this young lad was born that a sou was to be born to him at or about a certain time; that at the time stated his wife did give birth to a son. At tho same time, he also stated that his son's name would be David, (not Joe)and that is the name of the lad for I heard him answer to it Joe also said that his ir untie of greatness aud prophecy would fall upon his son and lineal heir David who he stated would be as wise and pow erful as David of old. The fact of the birth of this child, following according to Joe's proph ecy, strengthened the belief that . had already so strong a hold upon his followers. Mrs, Uitoman isji masculine, intelligent looking lady of forty-five or forty-seven years. She is a na tive of Xew Yo:k. She has a splendid farm some four miles from Xauvoo .which ia managed by her two eldest sons, while David goes to school. About the two eldest there is i. othing remarkable to be seen. They are intelligent men of largo size, but have nothing in their appearance betoken ing them to be prophets, or sons of a prophet." To their mother, they are said to be very much attached and very kind. Pavid is au uncommon ly intelligent lad, of massive forehead, and bright expressive eyes His stcpt-father intimated that he cares as little about Mormons and Mormonism, as one that never heard the names, notwithstanding that thousands of the followers' of his father believe him to be a great ; high priest, a prophet and seer,(in embryo,)&c He knows that they worship his name equal to that of Jesus Christ; and yet, I atn told, the lad is too intelligent to allow it to make any impress ion apon him. Probably the fact of all oi tne family being uubelievers in it is the cause. The following incid nt I learned from a gen tleman residing at Nauvoo: That when. Joe was killed in jail, pome fifteen miles from his home, his wife and son took possession of hi body, and to prevent the rabble fnm getting it they raised the floor of the dining room, and digging a grave, hurried his remains there, where they still remain. This story, whether Lrue,-or not, is generally believed in Jvauvoo. ApotooY Making. Dr. Franklin, we ore told, once lvnd-a servant who was never in the wrong.

At a -fancy dress party" in Hartford Ct., the past week, one lady appeared in a dress ornamented with iundreda of little bells, not much big--o-er than rain drops affording music of the fairy kmd in the dance. In some of the eastern countries, dancing women wear bell on their ankles which tinkle in time witli the music of the dance, and, perhaps, thitf custom suggested the more conspicuous di plsjy of this, musical ornament.
