health and «o let them remilin there f >r sev-
It is my conviction that by the
,ed disinfection, if thoroughly made in pri-
Hoys, Htreets, und gutters and
under'the dwellings, &c., and wherever
tilth has accumulated for a long time, or
water stagnated principally if a mixture of
sweet and salt water has taken place, the
general health of the community1 would be
highly improved, and there would be far less
disposition to all epidemical sickness.
1 strongly belreve too, that if unluckily
vellew fwver should be imported, it would
then no more become epidemic.
Every precaution is d mbly necessary
now with the great change of population,
army nd citizens, not acclimated, it would
therefore be highly prudent to use the solu-
tion of copperas wherever digging-, ditches
«•r earthworths are to be made, to prevent
the dangerous inhalation from the earth or
hi ganic matters laid open, for instance dur-
ing the necessary repairs of the gtspijx's,
«te. Hoping that our authorities will give
due consideration to these remarks
1 remain, etc. C. F. JENNY.

tliemarket closing at 37®39c for'good or-
dinary, 40^42 for low middling and 45^46
for middling Some authorities quoted low
middling at lc. higher, and we heard that
40c. had been offered andrcfused for strict
gpod ordinary, and 43c. had been paid for
low middling, but as ha# been the case for
some days past, l¡¡*ts that were specially
wanted, either from their staple or other

buyer, and 60, 50, 25 and 21 to others.
