MALL-POX. The historv of small-pox as prevailing in thi citv, ha.- been fully desc ribed in the annual re poit. and the exhibit of the health officer ap pea reel to this communication marked "A." The epidemic, which at first threatened to leave its deadly traces in every part of the District, has Ik en successfully arretted and confined to certain limits bv the; vigilance and persevering energy ot the officers having this subject in charge. 'j !.?? most jowerful measures tor the preven tion ot the spread of small i>ox have been found to consist in isolation and vaccination. The lormer has been rendered as perfect as circum stances and the provisions ot law would per mit, tl.e latter most diligently and taitlilully practiced to the lasge-t |?e>-si'ble extent. The vaccination of the j>opulatioir, exclusive of such l*-r.-oii- as received attention at the office of the board, was confided to the ward physicians ot the c:?v. under conditions iiuposedre'iuirmg the n.o-t thorough scrutiny into the need-ol the community in this respect, and their complete protection bv \ ae ciiintioii per.-cveringly proae <?uf.il. How faithfully and efficiently the work ol tLc-e me<lical gentlemen has been performed is e vinced by their full and* satisfactory reports to the beard, but more by the strikingly bene fit lal results of their labors. Too lunch cannot be said in commendation of the zeal and devo tinn bestowed u|?oii the ta.-k a.?igned them. 1 he w?,rk assumed no ordinary proportion-.and demanded no ordinary sacrifice and exertion. To the offices ot the ward physicians, we teel convinced. i?due a large share of success in shielding the District from the ravages ol small l>ox. For these extraordinary services suitable r< numeration ha- not yet been rendered. Their accounts, herewith presented, are regarded by the Ward as exceedingly moderate and ni-t, and carlv action of the Legislative Ass ?nibly i re-| eetiu!ly urged, by which these; physicians ma> be compensated for the imi?ortant duty they have so faithfully executed. The l. iard of Healtli has already assumed onc-th;rd oi this pecuniary indebtedness, to be paid out ot the appropriation made by Congress lor the next hscal vear. and the aid of the legislature i earnestly it-yoked to meet the rema.ning obli gation. In order to prevent the ingress of small pox it is ! .-sential that the system ol vaccination tlius inaeigurated -hall be persistently sustained year after vear, since a new imputation is constantly being added to the District. and jieriuanent resi dents re.mire the test of revaccination at uncei tain intervals. The board would, therefore, snegest that an additiou of at lea-t per annum be maele to the present salaries ol tin ward plivsicians. in return tor which thev shal! be required tat kast once a year, or oftener. shou .. -mall |>ox prevail,) to visit every hou-e in their respective eiistricts, for the vaccination and revaccination of all such as may be uipro tected. and to ascertain that then* who pr<:'er to apply to their own tamilv physician* shall >iave complied with the compulsory rule within a reasonable time. , , Additional legislation is absolutely demanded to enable the l?oard still more successfully to pro tect our citix*lis against small pox. At present the disease chieily prevails in shanties and di lapidated Rouses where numbers are cotigre gated, the surroundings ef which indicate gros neglect of the common rules of health, especi ally' as res|>ectj ventilation and personal clean liness. No legal authority ex.sts to compel the removal ol the intected from these locations and thus, in nianv instances, they have una voidably continued to o|>erat? as foci for the propagation and spread of the epidemic. In order to stamp out everv trace of a ma!?ly so justly dreaded it is absolutely essential that tli board shall bave authority to separate th ? diseased from the healtliy. Vaccination and isolation once assureel. small pox will have no longer a local habitation in our midst Vaccination, not witl; standing the ntw-ntptt wisdom upon this subject,still command* the confidence of the profession as an efficient pre ventive against the small pox. The ex|?e-rience ot the Nt* York Board of Health, durihg the ??ast vear, is strongly corol>orati veot this asaer " It |>ositively affirms that "among all iion. - vaccinated or re-vaccinated th>'?e MlfCftlwtU'sf . to small |h>x in any nor.e have fallen victim.. . torni. while numbers have been su?c*eu it who retused to be vaccinated." Theeitortsof thel*>ard to extinguish small im>x bave resulte<l in partial succ?*sonlv, chieflv lor the want of suitable legislation by which isolation and vaccination could be made com pletely effectual. 1. In order to thorough protection ot the com munitv everv persou expensed, from neglect of vaccination or re-vaccination, shourd l>e com pelled to submit to this important preventive measure either at the hands of the ward physi cian, or the family medical adviser. 2. Authority should be vested in the Board ot Health to remove to hewpital all cases of small pox. whenever in their judgment the public safety may require such proceeding. Of cour-e a w ise discretion should be observed, avoiding conflict with suitable domestic arrangements for isolation of the sick, where the menus of the Oc cupant anu the capacity of the dwelling jus?ity exemption troni the rule. These provislons.it is hoped, will receive the official approval of our law-makers, and that the board will hereafter be fortified with ample j*>wer and authority to control Infectious disease, whenever it iuay thr? aten or assume epidemic form. Every phy sician anil head of family should be required to rejxirt within M hours any and all cases of small pox, or other infectious or contagious disorder that may occur within the circle of their inmates or patients. The following results in regard to sm%ll pox in the District will be found interesting and sug gestive : srXMART. Tn'al number of cases of small-pox occurring from duly 1. 1*72, to April 15, 187 i?continent ca.-es, ss'.i; mild tvpe, 334?1.223. %l>eaths?never vaccinated, 307; previous to 5 years.

The total expense of conducting the amall pox service from l?ecember, 1871, to May 1st, l?74, including vaccination and vaccine matter, amounts to a-f? Sum j'aiet from appropriation of Congress. fl?:,5<2.25. Srm paid from appropriation of District, ?3,:V;35. Appropriation asked from District to reim burse ward pbvsicians, amounts to *7,317.33. Should the Legislature appropriate a ?uffl etent ram to pay accounts of the ward physi cians, the amount paid bv the District will then be fll.2M68,or #.4,367-M less than the sum taken from the general government appropria tions. rrBLIC BATHS. The cleanliness, proper activity and warmth of the skin, so essential to ordinary health, Is especiallv to be regarded as a defence against cholera and other epidemics. Ihj ??osssltv has t>een recognised abroad, especially in England, where public baths and washing houses have b ng been established. The importance of such institutions to the laboring classes, in a physi cal, social and moral aspect, cannot be over [ ? vtiinaUd. The public bath and washing t ouw? organized at Liverpool in 1*43, was t?l wed in lMfbya similar institution in White ' liar*', London, calculated Tor ?t bat'is ani 95 washing places, each with its separate drving closet, and to meet a weekly demand for about 30,000 baths, tod the washing and drying of ihe clothes of about 20.000 persons. Since then other establishments have been opened and are in successful operation in different parts of Ijondon. The number who have availed theni ? selves of the penny baths Is incredible, while the arrangements tor cheap washing and dry ing of clothing arc most complete and accessi ble to all. That the bath should fiiui a place among the regular occupations cannot be ques tioned. It is really of greater consequence and more general utility than any species of manual I or g> mna.-tic exercise. In our country the iia l*>itance of vubiic baths has been time and again insisted upon by sanitarians. In Boston | they have l>eeii in use for a number of vears. and extensively patronized by all classes. In | New \ ork the accommodations for public bath ing are|uot In proportion to the demand. At I tention, however, is being directed to its mi I portance. and it will not be long ere this great saritary measure will receive the consideration I it justly merits. I>r. Stephen Smith, one of the I most distinguished sanitarians of the age, in re I terring to the value of public baths, especially I to the districts in New York occupied bv ten I ant houses, says: I '? The maintenance ot public baths in such I numbers and so distributed throughout the c.ty I as to enable every inhabitant to bathe daring I the afternoon or evening, would greatly ni'ti I gate the effects of high temperature: 1, by I directly reducing the temperature of the body; I 2, by 'maintaining a diminished temperature I through the increased evaporation from the I surface, which would follow through cleansing I ot the skin. Tliemj measures, it faithfully and I promptly can ied our. would do much to r< iu I edy the insanitary condition* which arequick I en?d into such fatal intensity and aetivit\ dur I ing the hot season of the year, and our summers I thus be made, if not a-- healthv as any other I portion of the year, at least as healthy as the | summer towns and reports whither we are wout I to flee." I I ew cities require public baths more than onr I own. With superior water advantages the p >or I coi.'d be furni.-hed all the be no fits of bathing I their persons and was'iing their clothes at ;*n I expense merely nomina". It is to be hoped the I le^islatu-e will consider this subject of sutli I cient importance to the sanitary iiiterestsot the I I 'istrict to introduce s.>me measure by which I undir direction of the Board of Health or I other wis;, the advantage of frequent bathing I may l.c sccurcd, at trifling cost, to our inoreas I ing population. I II Kit At" OP VITAL PTATWTICS. It is greatly to be regretted that the monthly I mort larv statements of the board have been so I meagre r nd defective in that precision so es I sential U the completeness and utility of such | reports. This is due to the absence ot any law I com pell i ig the physician in attendance to com municate the existence of disease ami death, and to the loose provision by which the board is I informed of deaths, their causes, and other I qualifyirg conditions. I'he best interests of li u man it., demand that there shall be. at what ever cost secured, the most complete periodical I statistics of births, marriages and deaths, c-ire fully classified. and recorded in such lurm a, to I be instartly available. Comparative estim ?tes I of publu health, caret'nllv prepared, including the causo operating at different periods to l.ro I duce certain diseases, constitute a most im;? >rt ant basis of preventive sanitary operations. I Not onU is this d< mantled in a sinitary view but for tlie requirement* of law :tn<l the ends ot public justice. Indeed, no subject opens a more I comprehensive field of useful inquiry. or mav I lead to n ore ini|>ortant results. I Carefu investigations into the operations of otlier health institutions throughout the j country made recently bv a committee of this board, contirm the opinion expressed of the ne I cessitv ot a more j?erfect svstem of vital st iMs I tics than that at prcsenf existing. The aid I and exhaustive report, just publish*. l, couu.ns I the foliov ing allusion to this subject: ?? Your committee are thoroughly impressed with the importance and necessity of the es tablishment, in connection with our own bowl of a bureau of vital statistics, including record' oi births, marriages, deaths, burial*, transfer and removals, inquests of coroner, causes oi diM-ase, death ratio, and the like, and recom mend that suitable legislation be requested ot | the Legislative Assembly covering this -ub I ject." It is certainly most desirable that sonic legis I lation should be had at the pending session of I the Assembly by which a more perfect s.-'etu I ol vital statistics may l>e secured. In this con nection, it is esj^cially urged that no burials | -hall be authorized wuhin the District of Co I liiinbia without a perin.t from the Board of Aealth previously obtained, the ipp!ie ation for the same in every instance setting forth the n ine, age, sex. country, disease causing death ol the deceased, and anv other information es I sential to a complete mortuary report. I ylABANTINK. Certain quarantine regulations are als>> im I perativelv demanded to prevent the intro fuc I tion of intectiousor contagious disease jnt it'ie I city trom abroad, whether by lan.l or water j The want of suitable legal restrictions has t>-en more than once apparent during the prev li -nee I of the late epidemic. Persons arllicted ?vith I -mall pox have come, unchecked, into Wash ington and Georgetown, from neighbji iuir I towns and cities, m the serious risk ot our own inhabitants. > o enactment at present exists to prevent the con-tant rendition of such .Ulcer ous invasion of the District. Both land and water communication should be properly I guarded again-' the inroad of contagions -lif eases, Md projier quarantine regulations at once adopted as ,? part oi the essential m i uin ery ot the board of health. ABATTOIR. The location of slaughter-houses in cities has long been recognized among the proin! lent causes ot unhealthfulness and diseas ?. In JUie ot the European cities abattoirs have been e.on strncted beyond the mnnivirtal limits wiiere alone animals are slaughtered for niirket. In these the most careful provision is made to secure entire cleanliness and freedom from offensive and injurious odors, the protection of the commui ity against unsound or immature meats, and the utilization ol every portion ot animal matter (including blood Minder the stme roof. An extensive abattoir, at immense cost is now in process of construction near Boston' where all animals intended for the city markets will be slaughtered. This abattoir, req :ired by legislative enactment to be built, under direction of the Board of Health, has been ap propriated by the butchers themselves, who are constructing it at their own expense, but under the direction ot* the health or^an of the city Similar buildings must, sooner or later, be con structed in every city. Such structures cannot l*il to result roost advantageously in rem .ving the o.^ctifclye and pernicious odors which ^im itate from sH:*5' slaughtering establishments, badly regulated, ana '"fiiisliiBg lor the butchers themselves, at one jajiiit, ami ai ino t erate cost, all necessary appliances for the suc cessful prosecution of their business. DISPOSITION ov NIGHT 8??IL, OARUAOK, ETC. | Experience has proved tiiat the prompt and If??>yal of night soil and garbage can not ne effected unless the Board of Health is allowed to exercise entire control in the direc tion of its agents. The same remark applies to the cleansing of streets and allevs. ami tUe gen eral removal of tilth from thoroughfares and private premises. Such control of these im portant sources of offense and Insalubrity obtains in other places, and is quite indispensa ble. It is therefore earnestly requests ! that some legislation be had looking to a more effective disjmsition ol this important division of sanitary I a !*>r. The transfer and final disposition of night soil has always keen an object of much sanitary interest, and invariably attended by no small trouble and expense. The board has' g: o the subject unusual attention, and in few ot the cities is the e.vcrementitioua matter so thor oughly disposed of, and with so little offense, as in our own. The same may be affirmed of garbage and d.ad aiimals. These nuisancc* are all transferred, under one contract, and by the same rneaus of transportation, to a point down the river, eight miles from the city limits This whole work is accomplished at an expeuse to the board of ?20,000 per annum, or *.rd.7!i tier diem. In New York the cost of reiuovin-' night soil and dead animals is *41,per annum or *112.? per day. This does not embrace, how ever, the expense of removing garbage, which is included in the contract for cleaning streets and removing ashes. The number of dead animals removed annually in this city is about eleven thousand. For a more explicit account of the action o* the board in disposing ot night soil I beg to refer your excellency to my last report, and especially to the admirable deUiled st uem -nt with apjiendix submitted by I>r. Bliss, chairman ot the sanitary police committee. MA KINK PRODCCTH. Attention is invited to the report of inspec tions and condemnations of marine products for the vear ending April Kith, 1?73. It will be seen by the detailed statement (appendix B) that the total number of single fish inspected has been 5,Ci3,!V50, amounting In weight to 5,885 610 pounds; of bunches, 3!?,427, weighlna 1,731 J21 pounds; amounting in the aggregate to 7,377 131 Cunds. The condemnations ot products unfit r sale amounted to 103.324, including single fish, bunches, oysters, clams, and crabs. PERMITS, LICENSES, ?TC. The system of requiring permits in regard to certain trades and employ ments.in force in other cities, has demonstrated the necessity of such conditions to the conservation of public health and comfort. These should Include permits for the sale of all doubtful insanitary products whether animal or otherwise, for the Introduc tion and continuance of soap fat and boilin? establishments, the collection and salting of fish and green hides, the manufacture or sale of dangerous chemical compounds, and all occu pations or trades threatening to affect injuri ously the health or life of community. Su able legislation is desired to secure the ad ran. tages accraing from permits, which should be (ranted by the Board of Health. CLOTI11HO, DISINFECTANTS, ETC. in compliance with the requirements or law Of the destroyed clothing ami furniture of the poor exposed to small-nox In fection, and the valnattonplaced upon the same, prepared under direction of th? board is herewith transmitted, (appendix cVffn order that suitable provision maybe made tn reins bur* tho?e mho hire sutler* d loss by the sur render of the r good* for the| ubltc benefit.

To ef fect thin a considerable indebtednesss was un ?>oid<tbly incurred in the hiring of carts an.I lalxirer*. vtliu h hasnot been cancelled, amount ing to S 1,300. The (K-rvices. valuable in a san itary view, were performed by a class of per sons greatly in need of the money they have honestly earned. As the Board "of Public Works "decline to pay these accounts, we are compelled to ask from the Legislature a suit able appropriation for that puri*?se.

IMrrilE Atl.KYS ASD VACAST LOT#. A large majority of the alleys of the city abound in sources of disease requiring speci.il attention. Reference is not made so much to collected filth on the surface, as to the fact that these narrow lanes are Inhabited by a class of persons who disregard, in their manner of liv ing, the plainest principles af health. For the most i>art they occupy shanties, often in dilap idated condition, and overcrowded with living inmates. Insufficiently clothed and fed, with out proper ventilation, ami exposed to other causes of morbid derangement, they become the earliest victims of epidemic disease, and the surest means of its spread to others. The e buildings constitute nuisances injurious to health, which the l?>ard should be anthoriz d to al ate. It is estimated that more th tn twenty-five thousand persons aro living at- described. The owners of such property should be compelled, under heavy penalty, to keep the buildings in tenantable condition," a-id especially to provide (what is so much need' T a proper water supply. Powir should al?o be granted the l>oard to cau.-e tooe tilledordrain ?<! vacant lot* where standing water and tilth pools exi-t. Whole sections of the city are infested by fevers and other maladies from this cause, th". correction of which is imperatively dem nid d. FISAM ES. The retort of the Treasurer, herewith tra-is mitted ^appendix I>), will he found to present a fair exhibit of the financial operations of the board ?inc<< its first organization. It will be seen by comparison with thee\i>enses )(f similar Institutions elsewhere, that unusual prudence and economy have been practiced in the salu tary management of the I>i?trict; while the le sult- accomplished will compare favorably with the health labors of other cities. The preva lence of epidemic small pox has required for its arrest an increase of force and appliances, call ing for a corresponding increase of expenditure of money, but it will l>e found that the actual outlay has been unusually moderate lor the work accomplished. The amount appropriated by the Legislat ure at its last session has been long since exhausted, and the board is now in need of funds for cur rent expenses, and contingencies that may arise before the expiration of the fiscal year. In conclusion, the hoard, animated bv a sin cere desire to acquit itself faithfully of the im portant trust committed to its management, earnestly irvokes the cooporation of your excel lency, the Legislative Assembly, and ail g'ssl citizens, in the honest effort hi ingmade to ren der the District a model of salubrity as itsion must become of all that is attractive in exter nal finish and adornment.
