Snow lay in the fields this side of Lake Ontario on Sunday, the 18th, iwo or three inches deep. Accounts from Buffalo also state that show fell there on Saturday.

The weather also turned chilly cool, and fires and overcoats have been brought into general requisition. A sharp and cutting frost supervened the rain yesterday morning, and a still severer one this morning; both rain and frust, we believe, received a pretty general welcome-the former being greally needed, and vegelation generally being malured and out of all harm from the latter. Our planters have had a very dry and favorable fall for gath. ering their cotton, and have made good use of it.
