In a conversation with the medical gentle men e?mi>oeing the Board of Health so to the ca.M s report*d ia this city, the opinioa is given that there are probably no cases of genuine epidemic cholera existing, but severe cases of choleramorbus, resembling. very nearly, the genuine Asiatic cholera, and which, in their peculiar indications, may be truthfully pro Bounced cases of sporadic cholera. The wa??a? are reariy identical? paia in the bowels, followed bv looseness, without much succeeding pain nnlll a ?4l?|we of the entire sv>tem. which sets in very soon, and unless ar retted by mcdicinal agencies, -oon terminates fatallv The'patient, when first attacked, should use renn dies to prevent the relaxation of the l-osr els. avoid excitement, avoid the use of fruits, vegetables, aud all tancy dishes; use the staple and wholesome articles of food, and sond for a phvsieian as soon as possible. With the proper samtar, precautions by the authorities, and an earned co-operation on the t art ot hiwawkr -[ rm in I individuals in keep ing their premises cieanlv and wholesome, there need be ao fear of the disease in this ciiy, is believed to be in a better sauitary con dition generally than ever before. f? p ifn.nmv MEAPfr.ES TO AVERT OlIOL IKJk. Health Officer BHs* this tB'irn'ng called all the sanitary inspectors together In his office and ir.-ued the following orders, with instruc tion? for each to set about putt rig them in force at once, and to spare bo pain* or diligence in doing so: ?? The inspectors will snpp'y th*rn?elves vrlth special rejort blanks and proceed to inspect their several districts, designating on the reports the gutters, alleys and vacant lots wb?re disin fectants should' be distributed, and yards, privies, anddrellings of the poor where disln fe< tants ?bouM be supplied under the law, and r? port the saa.e to the health officer, together with Lames autl localities of all poor persons whose dwellings require whitewashing; without delay. The poor will be supplied by the dis tributor with slacked lime, and directed to whitewash their premises when required. Great rare should be exercised by inspector* and dis tributors to avoid waste of disinfectants, to perform tue work thoroughly and promptly, so as to place the cities In a perfect sanitary oon dition at the ear.ieet powuble moment.'' In addition to the above. Dr. Bliss gave them ?xplicit verbal orders where and how to pro ceed in dealing with nuisaacos, to examine gutters where there is surface drainage from iuaipsor public hvdrants, to enter yards and weliings of the poor, inspect them thoroughly, advise the occupants what to do, leave disin fectants for their u?e. line for whitewashing, and enforce kindly, but firmly, all the rules of (he board, as ufOn this alone dep?B<ls a sani tary condition of the District necessary to pre vent the spread of cholera or any other infec tious or contagious disease. The conduioa of pri\ ies of the poor wa*> particularly dwelt on by the health officer, lie directed the inspectors how to instruct the people In relation to these auiP-iaccsj dry clay pulverized, scattered in the boxe<? freely r?oce, aud then a little each day, is the very best ati?! cheapest disinfectant that can be used, accessible to and coet* nothing but a little pains on the part v" those who are unable to purchase more popular such as carbolic acid. sul|. hate of copper, Ac.

He enjoined upon the inspector* the im[>ort?nCA of vigilance tnd con stant lal-or, the necexsity of disabusiug the onblic m nd of prejudice towards the Board of Health, and thus obtain the cooperation of every individual, man and woman, in this Dis trict' towarw- as perfect a sanitary condition as p?>ssible. by looking well to the premises that they occunv. That with such a state of feeling between the citnens and the board, with the anceasmg etforts which the latter promise to exert, he had no fears of cholera, even if it is brought here every dav from other parts of the cc untry. x __ Kxaiiii?ati'?w or tor Hkbrkw School.
