    A NORTHERN INVASION. – Early risers were surprised yesterday morning to find the ground covered with snow, for the first time in several years. The telegraph announced the snow storm in Macon and Augusta early in the evening, but it did not reach us until near morning. It brought with it a sharp, biting atmosphere, and, though the snow had disappeared by ten o’clock, there was, during the day, a decided Northern twang in the air that reminded us of that ungenial region from which so much ill wind has blown of late.
