Small-Pox in Boston.
The small-pox epidemic in Boston
and vicinity is beginning to. create
grave apprehensions among the peo
ple of all classes. J? or months th
disease has been on the increase, and
the feeble efforts of the authorities
to prevent its spread have amounted
to nothing. The new city govern
ment has grappled with it with an
apparent determination: to check its
progress, but the disease has obtain
ed such a firm, foothold that it will
be a long time before it can be whol
ly eradicated. It is probably no ex
aggeration to say that 8,000 cases
now exist in this city, and the per
centage of deaths is much larger
than by all other causes combined.
Nearly all the burials are made in
the night, and from midnight until
daylight there are vary busy times
in the various cemeteries surround
ing the city. Two hospitals have
been established for the treatment
of Boston patients, and within - two
days after they were ready they were
filled to their full capacity, and yet
there are accommodations for only
a fraction of the cases now existing
and rapidly multiplying. The au
thorities, of course, endeavor to con
ceal the real state of affairs, and, un
til within a day or two, they have
partially succeeded. The alarm now,
however, is becoming general, and a
great many families whose means
allow it have removed from the city.
There is probably not a single hotel
of any class in the whole city but
has had its quota of cases, but of
oourse the patients have jn every
instance been promptly removed,
and therefore no deaths have oc
curred in the public houses. Only
last night Judge Colt, of theSuprem'e
Judicial Court, was taken with the
disease, and at midnight was taken
from his hotel to one of the hospi
tals in the Highland district. . His
condition to-night is very critical,
and it is probable he cannot recover.
The epidemic has already begun to
affect business, and its damage to
the commercial! interests of the city
promises to be scarcely less than that
occasioned by the November fire.
Of the suburban1 cities most afflicted
Charlestown is the most prominent.
