Early Spring

From Harrisburg, Pa. February 27.

The weather of last week was remarkably mild the Susquehanna is clear of ice. Flights of Pigeons have been observed for several days; and we have also remarked that wild geese are on their way to the Lakes. These circumstances are considered to be indicative of early spring.
