CETSINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. NATIONAL HOTEL DISEASE. (From the New York Herald ] Having been strongly and repeatedly urged by a 1*1 y sufferer at the National Hotel about , the middle of March, and who came under my care during a relapse in New York about the first of May. to publish my views of the malady. I have thought it might be of some service pos sibly to do so. as I have been in a position to obtain information not only froui facts coming under my own observation, but from scientific men on the snot, who were personally familiar with the whole history of things from the begin ning up to the present time. Having lived in the midst of the most mala rial districts of the South tor a great portion of my life, opportunities have been afforded for becoming familiar with diseases of that nature and their various symptoms. My opinion is. i that bad air malaria will account for all the phenomena observed, and that no other suppo sition can Some five or six years since diarrhoea whs very prevalent at that hotel. One gentleman was seized at the National last October. An eminent physician of Washington says. '? The first ease of the diarrhoea I met with at the National was in the latter part of Janu arv " It cannot be denied that several persons who never ate anything at that house were attacked by the disease Ihere were many who took all their meals there through the whole season and remained well. It is not in proof that there were any case? in the neighborhood A wide street bounds the house on three sides. Ladies who spent all their time in the build ing suffered less than men who were absent a good part of the time, thus eating at the house less often than the women. There was every grade of intensity in the symptoms in different persons. The symptoms themselves were much varied. The attacks usually came on early in the morn ing and suddenly, with a copious and repeated discharge from the bowels of n light colored, frothy, sourish fluid, of custard consistency, without pain, griping, straining, tenderness, chillness. or fever. In most cases the stomach was not affected nt all in the beginning, and theappetito would re main good. If the disease went on for a few days the stomach l>ecame irritated and the food only was thrown up. especially if the bowels had been cheeked by opiates and astringents. Sometimes very violent pains would be felt in the bowels, seemingly due to spasm and flat ulence. At a later period, inflammation, soreness, tenderness, and fever would manifest them selves. with loss of appetite, great thirst and in a very few cases cramps A copious rash appeared in a gouty patient. There were few. if any, cased of bloody or mucous stools. The best results generally followed tho use of absorbents and antiacids. such as charcoal and magnesia. The best diet seemod to be rice, farina starch and the like. Quiet and confinement were less bcneficial than courageously keeping out and about. Relapses most frequently occurred from im prudence in eating. e'pecUlly meat. The stomach was only secondarily affected and sometimes not at all. One man would eat a single meal in the house, leave it. be taken sick aud remain so for weeks; another would eat and live in the house for days and weeks and escape altogether. Several persons who remained in the house and procured their uwq food and water did not cscape an attack. Many parts of the house were filled with a most offensive odor, some parts were compara tively exempt No practical chemist has Critically examined a body dead from the National Hotel disease and declared under his own name that there was any trace of a mineral poison. Examina tions of the dead body have been critically made without the discovery of arsenic or of any other mineral poison, a* in the case of Mr. Petriken. of Harrisburg. Pa. In epidemics from bad air. this bad air including miasma, that is decaying vegetation, as well as malaria in geueral. such as chill and fever, fever aud ague, diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera, yellow fever and the like, half the people escape alto gether. If mineral poison is in the food on the table in sufficient quantities to aflect a single persou decidedly, such effects will be observed within a very tew hours, and not one in ten can possibly escape altogether. In large doses arsenic kills in five or six hours, beiore inflammation take? place In moderate doses there is inflammation and irritation of the bowels, and death occurs in three or four days. In a third class of cases there is a nervous irritation causing a kind of palsv or lockjaw, hysterics, mania and the like. If death does not take place in a few hours from arsenic, there is inflammation of the stomach, as well when it is applied to a fresh wound as when in the stomach. For a hundred persons to sit down to a table and partake of food poisoned with arsenic, oauting death in some instances or severo sick ness wubin a few hours, and yet the greater number to escape, is a chemical aud physiolo^i eal impossibility. Heat destroys the effects of malaria as to the human body by rarifying it, and carrying it above the breathing |?int. Cold brings it near er the floor or earth, and in a more condensed and virulent form Hence women sitting in in warmer rooms with the larger supplies of air from without through window crevices, suffered less than men who were in colder rooms with a supply of new air from frequently opening doors trom the passages in the hotel, the outer doors bein? kept closed Mineral poisons affect the stomach almost in stautly if in large do-?es, causing fearful vomit ing" or excessive burning or pains in throat, stomach or bowels. A person entering a house in a tired and wearied Condition, and breathing a concentrated malaria while eating a single meal and then leaving the hou-e. may very eisily imbibe a fatal disease in that short time lrom the oj?era tion of two causes?bis debilitated state and the empty stomach drinking in the poison from every swallow of saliva, until he eats, and then the vigor of the svstein being expended on th?? digestion of the food in the st >tna h. leave* other parts of the system projiurtionably weak against disease engendering agencies. Anomalous secondary symptoms and pheno mena would attend the disease, from the fact of the extraordinary combination of simple mias ma with the more general malaria, and the ex traordinary concentration of the gases from sewers, ces-pu^ls kitchen offal, noisome cellar', and the heat of cooking, washing and ironing in the vicinity of the lower rooms of the build ing. not very accessible to the out-d<?r air. It is believed that not a single statement ha been made in the preceding article that cannot be literally substantiate I in a court of justice by the tejtimony of personal observers of the tacts of the case?the testimony of scientific men favorably known to fame. The aim h:.s been to write a reliable paper hoping that com petent minds abroad, as weii as at home, may vj able to deduce therefrom conclusions that will shield the National from an unwarrantable suspicion that there could exist, in the whole extent, a sinzle heart so base as to attempt tho death of the President elect, all regardless. to? , of the certain fatal consequences to hundred of helpless women aud innocent children und unattending fellow citizens.

We find in the St. Louis Democrat, the fol lowing amusing account of a little " Lynch law affair that occurred on the steamer Minne haha on her trip up the Missouri, in which the public will he apt to recognize rather more ius tice than in most case? thut have been tried by that formidable judiciary. Among our respectable passengers, was found a verdant-looking youth running away with another man's wire. The melancholy fact having leaked out. it was forthwith resolved that Judge Lynch should call a special session of his august and sum mary court. Arrangements were soon made, sheriff and judges hastily put on authority and dignity, and the following writ was immediately issued : In the name of the ) People, > Court of Judge Lynch. Special. s*. ) Steamer Minnehaha?To any sheriff or officer of the steamer Minnehaha, greeting : We command you. in the name of our supe rior court, now holding a special session on board the steamer aforesaid, that you arrest and bring forthwith into our august presence. Don Juan C , if found in your Dailwick. charged with grand larceny and the further crime of adultery upon the high sens, against the peace and dignity of the giant Republic, and within the immediato cognizance of this high court. And in this fail not upon your peril. Given under our hand and seal of the Court, this 29ih of Flora, and in the year of our court the fifty-seventh. Judge Lv.xch, Chief Justice. Judge Chastity, ) Associates Judge Purity, I Associates. As usual, the sheriff of Judge Lynch's court acted with astonishing promptitude and vigor, and in twenty minutes from the issuin' of the warrant, the guiltv Mr. C 1 stood in the august presence of Ihc supreme terrestrial jus tice. Having been regularly indicted, a petit j jury was empannclled. and the public prose cutor appearing against him. the Chief Justice appointed counsel for the defense, and the trial at once began. The Court room?gent's cabin?was crowded, and all eyes were fixed Opon the physiognomy of the accused, while the aforesaid countenance grew white and red by turns, as either fear or shame took possession of its possessor. Witnesses for the prosecution were examined one after another, and all testimony went straight to show that the lady was put on board the Minnehaha at Council Bluffs, by her own leige lord, and that the prisoner came on board at the next landing and took possession of her as his own wedded wife, and that as rucu, they had roomed together since. Parties fr?.m the Bluffs, who knew the injured husband, testified ! to his marriage with the frail lady passenger, , which transpired only some two months since. The case looked dark. There was no testi mony in contradiction to the above. The prose I cuting attorney looked triumphant. The jury j grew solemnly dignified. The chief justice and hi* associates waxed still sterner and looked more morosely grave. The counsel for the de fence took the prisoner to one side?a few mo ment's conversation ensued, and again they appeared in court. The counsel and nis unfor tunate client seemed like men in desperate circumstances. Hope and fear alternated on their expressive but diabolically sedate coun tenances. At length, however, the counsel rose ! and put in the following document ns ooaclu ' sive and sufficient evidence of the innocence and purity of his client. Amidst mingled hisses and murmurings of wrath, it was admitted as evidence in court: SI PH KM E BENCH? SHOEMAKER** COCRT. Council Bluffs Citv, Iowa, } May 2. 1S57. \ To all to whom tfiete presents may come : greeting. Be itTinown that I. Simeon Shoemaker, jus tice of the peacc of said city and State. reusing special confidence in the statement that an un Jleasant row has existed for some time between ob Q and his wife Betsey, do hereby dis solve the bonds of matrimony heretofore exist ing between them, very much to their mutual di.?gust. And furthermore bo it known that I, having been duly elected to this position by the Mormon vote. do. in harmony with the sublime (?olygamic doctrines of Saint Brigham Young, lereoy seal and deliver over the said Betsey to C , Esq., to have, to use, and to hold in any manner that to him may seem good. Witness my hand, and this great seal of the Court here unto appended, on this. the2rtth day of May. A. D. 1 Sji. Simeon Shoemaker. J. P., andex-officio marriage breaker and maker. This record, from the authenticated docket of Esquire Shoemaker, was introduced with ap parent confidence on the part of the defence; and the prisoner being put on the stand, testi fied in substance the same thing, assuring the jury that he was the husband of Mrs. Q?ley. The court, however, ruled that Shoemaker had no authority in law. and did not amouut to much as a man. and that the prisoner was an unmitigated liar. The Chief Justice then launch ed out into a moral dissertation, distinguished alike for its purity and beauty of thought, and its elegance and chastity of expression. The jury retired, and in just one hour and twenty-live minutes, returned with the following verdict : We. the jurors, of this august court, after solemn and deliberate deliberation, and reflec tive consideration in the momentous case sub mitted to us, do find? ]. That Esquire Shoemaker s commission ex pired on the first of April. 1857. 2. Thut Esquire Shoemaker had no authority to grant a divorce in the case of Q. r?. Q. 3. That the defendant C. is guilty in manner and form, as he stands charged in the indict ment. We recommend that C. be put upon a log and sent down the river rolling. That Mrs. Q. be locked up in the state room and kept securely until she arrives at her place of destination, and when she shall be delivered over to her friends; and that sentence be executed forthwith.

While the judge was preparing to pass sen tence upon the convicted and truly wretched man. the steamer stopped at a wood yard?pris oner's oounsel obtained private interview, and advised eulprit to agitate his pedal extremities and disappear in the thick hazel brush and un derwood that skirted the shore.
