It 4ias feces gh&wn;as far as our enquiries
have extended,) that in The Southern States
the season of the grpatest prevalence arid
inarjgnancy of diphtheria, is during the time

Drainage, What we $ay of drainage is
applicable to all infectious diseases, j Per-
feet drainage is the precedent condition of
prvention in all of them. A badly drained
city, town or locality, runs risks which are
J - . ,
proportionate to the inefficiency of its plan
of drainage. The soil of any situation which
is soaked with stagnant water, is sure to be
soaked with foul water, and all water which
is rife with animal and vegetable decompo
sition, is a most prolific ! hot-bed of infec
tious diseases. . .
One of the paramount conditions then, of
Pure watcr is thftt 'lt shaI1 ,iave frce fir?
lation, shall flow freely, and one of the es
sential conditions of harmless-' soil, is that it
shall have a free circulation of ground air.
Thorough drainage, therefore, becomes a
most potent factor in limiting the spread of
diphtheria, and should never be neglected.
Ventilation in and under dwellings should
be secured and made-effectual, because noth
ing contributes more to good health than
pure air ! Pure water, pure air, and a plen-
- in h
sunlight arexf the utmost importance
gienic.pmnt of yiew. As much, sun
shine as possible should btlet into the damp
shady corners, and such places as cannot be
remedied by drainage should lie frequently
covered with unslaked lime, charcoal or so
lutions of green vitriol.--

Spontaueous Combust iom
The St. Louis Republican gives this
account of the origin of a recent mys
terious fire in that city: A well au
thenticated case of spontaneous com"
bustjon occurred recently in the su
barbs t)f Oak Hill, ihe residence of
Mr. Edward Mead, the jeweler, fur
lushed the sensation j The circum
stances of the fire were, fortuuately,
such as to leave no doubt regarding
lU iCanse, and these "Circumstances are
especially interesting in a city where
fires of a mysterious originiiave been
remarkably frequent, j 'The fire prov
ed to be the result 01 spontaneous
combustion, and from a cause which
has beeu the one usually accredited
with effects of the kind, i Some of the
floors in Mr. Mead's house had lately
received a thorough coating of colored
varnish, and, in the polishing, hemp
cloths (squares cut from sacks) had
been used. Oue of these sacks, satu
rated with varnishj had been put in
the: basket for further use. It had of
itself smoldered, and finally produced
the fire The case is a curious one,
and of value from the knowledge it
affords of a dangerous combination.
