InbsTY Summer ix the Past.
In New England, the Spring of 1794
was distinguished by the forwardness of
the season, and by the destruction oc
casioned by the frost on the night be
tween the 10th and 18th of May. Ap
ples were then as larjre as grapes
FFintcr rye had attained its full height.
The apples and a great part of the rye
Tn 1798, snow, fell November 17.
and lasted nearly all the time until
"The cold year" was in 1R16. That
summer there was frost in every month.
On the 7th of June there was snow;.
on the Sth it was too cold to ride com
fortably toward the 2Vbrth, even in
winter clothes ; and for three succes
sive nights there were lanre white
frosts, which cut the corn down to the
rots. Corn was so thoroughly frozen
on the 25th of September, that it ws
hardly worth harvesting.
In 1818, i.he season was extremely
backward" It rained or snowed nearlv
every day in the month of March and
Mr. Editor : I saw in the last
Courier, a selection, headed 'A jump
for life.' Now I propose to give you
an -incident which occured in this,
(Franklin county) showing as much
nerve and presence of mind as your
. Mr. G. when a young man went
on one occasion to a Store in his neigh-
borhood, where he engaged in a social
gLss with some of his boon companions,
and according to his own statement he
took a glais too much. When he
reached home in the evening, a ser
vant who was hauling with some oxen,
met and informed him that a very large
rattle enakc was lying a cross his path.
and lie wanted help to kill it, where
upon our hero proceeded to the spot
and finding the reptile as reported, he
proceeded at once to dispatch his
snakeship. To accomplish this he se
cured a stick of sufficient length and
size, Lut in attempting to strike, his
stick broke, -, which threw him forward
with his heel on the snakes head, now
if he jumped he would in all probabili
ty be bitten, so throwing his weight on
that foot held the snake fast until he
could get his knife out, and then cut off
the head of the snak?, and upon ex
amination found he had 13 rattles and
a button. So I' head my snake story a
."Stand for life.''
la reading the snake story of our
Correspondent u5. B.,' it briugs to
mind one related to us by aunt Abby
House not long since. She states that
on one occasion whi'e walking a through
path from Pony s Church, she saw
a large black snake coming towards her,
it very naturally frightened her, and
she ran with all her speed,-(which she
said was faster than gals of the present
day can run, she was then only about
18 years of age) and the snake right
after her, very soon she came to a
small creek that crossed her path, and
cousin 'Sally Dilliard'' like, she pre

self around her Ie in a marncr too
tight for comfort. She seized the rep
tile by the neck with one hand, and with
the other drew her knife from her
pocket, which she opened with her
teeth and cut off his snakoships head.
This in connection with our friend
