Just use ftp. A sample session of me downloading that file:

  seneca@dodecagon:~$ ftp
  ftp> o mirror.direct.ca
  ftp: mirror.direct.ca: Unknown server error [normal for this mirror]
  ftp> o mirror.direct.ca
  [normal welcome stuff]
  ftp> cd pub/linux/debian/dists/potato/main/binary-i386/oldlibs
  250 CWD command successful.
  ftp> binary
  200 Type set to I.
  ftp> get libstdc++2.8_2.90.29-2.deb
  [getting file]
  226 Transfer complete.
  ftp> quit
  221 Goodbye.
  seneca@dodecagon:~$ sudo dpkg -i libstdc++2.8_2.90.29-2.deb
