Street Sprlnkllnst Viewed In is Sani
tary Mght.
WIT FILTH MORE DELETERIOUS AHD PEB-
TirKROtTS THAN DRY—OTHERWISE AN
ANNOTANCE AND NUISANCE.
We present to-day an article from the
pen of an eminent physician of Rochester,
New York, on street sprinkling. The
views of our gifted correspondent are new
here, but are the fruit of profound and in
telligent investigation aided by observation
in all parts of the world:
It is only a few years since the first
rickety sprinkling cart was seen in our
oity. For several seasons the institution
barely survived, and ventured to convey
its supposed bene6ts only a little way from
Aqueduct street. Now its numerous prog
eny are finding their way into every con
siderable avenue of the city, bringing to
the inhabitants, it is to bo feard, evils
much greater than the augmentation of
taxes levied against thousands, and with
out consent. It is worth while to inquire
into the utility of this method of contend
ing with the evils of street dust, or filth
in a dry condition, and as to the influence
upon the salubrity of the city of street
filth both when dry and wet.
It is hardly necessary to mention, what
is so well known, that the dust and accu
mulations in the paved streets of cities
consist chiefly of organic debris and ani
mal excreta; and that all such organic
matter, when in the presence of air, mois
ture and warmth, pass rapidly into a state
of change, fermentation or decomposition. I
As a result of such change, there is pro
duced and given off sulphuretted hydro
gen, sulphide of ammonia, phosphides
and other noxious gases. Both theory and I
experience prove tbat these volatile and
gaseous substances, produced by such I
organic matter in a state of decay and
fermentation, are injurious to human
health.
They are so, even when froti this ex- I
treme state of dilution the organs of smell
are naturally insensible to tbeir presence,!
or when, by habit, they become so. Often
when the olfactory organs fail to detect I
danger in tho offensive exhalations, it has
been found that the senses are not to be
relied on to guard us against the influence
of such volatile poisons. The accumula- I
tion of sulphuretted hydrogen in close
places, such as cess pools and common
drains, sometimes becomes so great as to
strike down instantly the workman who is
incautious enough to breathe it. This gas
is about one-fifth heavier than common
air, and a single gallon of it mixed with
1,200 gallons of air renders it poisonous to
birds, and one per cent, of it in atmospher- I
ie air makes it fatal to dogs. A very
small portion of it mingled with the air we
breathe makes it injurious to health.
Air, warmth and moisture are necessary
conditions for the processes of fermentation
and putrefaction. If any of these three
conditions be wanting these changes go on
more slowly or cease altogether. Thus in I
cool, dry vaults, dug in an absorbent soil,
and through which a current of dry air
passes, bumau bodies sometimes become
dry before they have time to decay, and I
they gradually shrivel up into such horrid I
mummies as the bodies of twenty-five
monks robed in the cassocks in which they I
lived, which are exhibited to travelers in
one of the churches in Bonn, and those ol I
a count and his daughter in the church of
St. Thomas, in Strasburg. It is well
known that where tbe climate is hot and
dry, as on the borders of the African
desert, in the pampas of South America, I
and in California, the flesh of animals, in
stead of becoming putrid, can be dried
and preserved for any length of time. But
where moisture is present —even though
warmth and air be in a great measure ex
cluded—decay still takes place in dead
organic matter, and subtle gases of evil
odor and malign influence continue for a I
long time to be produced and given off.
Another interesting fact connected with
this subject is, that street dust, as soon as
it is subjected to the action of moisture
and heat, generates countless myriads of
the lower orders of animal life, invisible to
the naked eye. Examination of the dust
of street and atmosphere of various cities,
under the microscope, show it to bs pos- |
sessed of a wonderful amount of active
animal life. Mr. Dancet, washed out with
distilled water twenty-five cubic feet of air
from the city of Manchester, England, and I
obtained about 160 drops of liquid. In
one thousandth part of a drop of this the
microscope revealed 250 organic beings, or
some 40,000,000 in the TSO drops. The
officers of health have made the same like
examination of the air and dust of the
streets of New York.
The report, after mentioning the parti
cles of various organic aud inorganic sub
stances found in over one hundred speci
mens of the dust which had settled on
plates of glass, says that fungi were very
abundant, and when water was added and
the contents exposed to heat and light for
half a day, thousands of animalculai made
their appearance, while the fungi sprouted
and multiplied, and formed a perfect mi
croscopic aquarium, full of vegetable and
animal life. By allowing filth to remain
in the streets, and by wetting it daily
during warm weather, we can not only
generate an abundance of noxious and poi
sonous gasses, but cultivate vibriones,
bacteria and other varieties of animalcu
lous vermin on a scale that puts Seth
Green's fish culture altogether into the
shade. There are in our cities other,
though less visible, pests than the fleas of
Borne and musquitos of Venice.
What is the inference to be drawu from
such facts, as applied to street dust or tilth?
Plainly, that if it is to be allowed to remain
for any length of time, or if it is not to bu
swept up and removed at short intervals, it
is far safer for tbe public health to keep it
as dry as possible. In Cairo, Egypt, the
"powers that be" act with much safety, if
not understanding!}', on the principle in
volved. Thoro you can ride over accumu
lated filth in tbe streets of such depth as to
make tbe motion of the carriage as noise
less and elastic as if the streets were paved
with India rubber. Where rain does cot
fall once in ten yoars, and whore aldermen
are not eager to furnish good contracts to
a cavalcade of sprinklers, the public is not
jeopardized by allowing the filth to remain
undisturbed, inasmuch as it is perfectly
What are recognized iv our own climate
as "sickly seasons," are usually character
ized by-a high temperature and frequent
rains. In such years vegetation grows
most luxuriantly, and often mildews and
decays. Examiue the numerous reports
in foreign and American medical journals,
detailing facts connected with yellow fever
. in the West Indieß and Africa, with the
rise and progress of the cholera and the
various intermittent fevers and dysente
ries of tropical climates. Such examina
tion will show that the general condition
of tbe country or district where .these dis-
Water, a polluted atmosphere, or one dapip ,
•ad reeking with tbe products of decaying
auimal and vegetablo matter, contaminated

them all.

THE STATE JOURNAL, j
Ths Stath Johbsul enters upon a new ca
reer, under auspices which promise perma- i
nence and increased usefulness. i
This paper will be Republican. The organ t
of no wins; or clique, it will aim to represent
the polioy of the National party; to build trp
a healthy National sentiment, and inspire lore
of the whole country.
It will not be the rehicle of personal detrac
tion, nor be used to get its pets Into office, nor '
to keep others out Tbe safety of all is in the
triumph of the cause ; and to secure it, all J
must labor xealously and devotedly, and take t
their chances in the general result.
Aiming to treat every member of its own
party generously, it will be just to its oppo
nents. It Will discuss all questions of public
Interest fairly and temperately. Asserting the
right earnestly and fesolutely, and bating no
jot or tittle of the truth whicn It is oalled.to de
clare, It will aim to "speak the truth in love."
It will commend genius, patriotism and vir- a
tne everywhere, and be aa prompt to expose j
corruption and imbecility in its own party as t
in another.
We shall advocate all measures to advance
the pubMc good, originating In our own party !
or outside. There are vital questions enough c
between us and the opposition without seeking c (
issues where all good men should stand on
common ground.
Believing popular Education to be the one j
crying want of our State and of the country, 1
we shall give large space to its advocacy. To "
:ducate thoroughly all the children of tbe
State should be the supreme and paramount
work of legislation. To this sacrod task we
;onsecrate our paper. We shall plead the
cause of the little ones who have no voice; ,
and, in so pleading, we plead for the future of *
Virginia in whatever can make her great and
jlorlous.
The financial condition of the country, and \
jspecially of the South, will not be negleoted. i
We advocate a financial policy which will
aring back again to tbe South more than Its J
aid prosperity. We are for the enoourage- s
inent of* a varied home industry. Ws are for
Free Banking, under a system which makes o
money absolutely safe and accessible to busi
ness men at living rates. We are for such a f ,
revenue system as will preserve the public ■'
credit without Imposing undue burdens upon a
Ihe people.
Realizing tbe vast importance of mechanical
and manufacturing Industry, we shall labor
heartily for the development of these interests,
we shall give accurate and detailed informa
tion of our vast natural wealth In mines, for
lists, water-powers and fisheries.
Believing In the "harmony of interests," we
■halt endeavor to show how fully each is de
pendent upon tbe prosperity of all; that labor '
and capital, employer and employee, should r
be allies and friends, enriching each other by
fraternal co-operation. ■.
Agriculture is our pet. Fresh from a VirJ !
glnla farm, which we leave lovingly and ree t
luctantly for awhjle, we have learned some
thing of what wide and varied knowledge,
what patience, economy and administrative
ability It takes to make a farmer. We shall j
give large space to Agriculture and Horticul- I
ture. *
In conclusion, we will say that we will unite
v. rdially and earnestly with men of all parties
to remove every obstacle to tbe moral, intel
lectual and physical progress of our State and
nation. There are thousands of noble youog
men and women in the State full of grand
capacity, now dormant and wasting. The old
Commonwealth is sounding tbe drum-beat to
duty. Let tbem shake off the night-mare of
conservatism and old traditions, and march
bravely to the work ol this new day. So sball
tbey make the future of Virginia worthy of
the past, and themselves worthy of a great an
cestry 1
REPUBLICAN NATIONAL PLATFORM.
1. We congratulate tbe country on the assured
success of the reconstruction policy of Congress, as
evinced by the adoption, in the majority of the
State™ lately in rebel lion, of constitutions securing
equal civil and political rights to all; aad it is tbe
duty of the Government to sustain tbose Institutions
and to prevent the people of such States from being
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guaranty by Congress of equal suffrage to
all loyal men at the South was demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of gratitude, and of
justice, and must be maintained; while the question
of suffrage In all the loyal Statea properly belongs
to the people of those States.
3. We deuouuee all forma of repudiation as a na
tional crime; and the national honor requires tbe
payment of the uublic Indebtedness In tbe utter
most good faith to all creditors at home and abroad,
not only according to letter, but the spirit of the
laws under which it was contracted.
4. It is due to tbe labor of the nation that taxa
tion should be equalized, and reduced as rapidly aa
the national faith will permit.
6. The.national debt, contracted as It has been for
the preservation of the Union for all time te some,
should be extended over a fair period for redemption;
and it is the duty of Cougress to reduce the rate of
interest thereon, whenever it can be honestly done.
6. That the best policy to diminish our burden of
debt is to so Improve our credit that capitalists will
seek te loan us money at lower rates of interest than
we now pay, and must continue te pay so long as re
pudiation, partial or total, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspected.
T. The Government of the United Statea should be
administered with the strictest economy; and the
corruptious which have been so shamefully nursed
and f -stored by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radi
cal retor m.
8. We profoundly deplore the untimely and tragic
death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession
to thePresideusyof Andrew Johnson, who has acted
treacherously to the people who elected him and tho
cause be was pledged to support; who has usurped
high legislative aud Judicial functions; who has re
fused to execute the laws; who has used hi* high
office to induce other officers to ignore and violate
the laws; who has employed his executive powers
to renler Insecure the property, the peace, liberty
and life of the citizen; who has abused tbe pardon
ing power; who has denounced the national legisla
ture ai unconstitutional; wh > bas persistently aud
corruptly resisted, by every means in his power,
every proper attempt at the reconstruction ef the
Status lately in rebellion; who has perverted the
public patronage into an engine of wholesale cor
ruption; and who has been justly* impeached for
high crimes aud misdemeanors, and properly pro
nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty llvo
Senators.
9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other Eu
ropean powers, that because a man is once a subject
he is always so, must be resisted at every hazard by
the Uuited States, aa a rello of feudal times, not au
thorized by the laws of natlous,and at war with our
national honor aud independence. Naturalized cit
izens are entitled to protection in all their rights ot
citizenship, as though they were native-born; and
no citizen of the United States, native or natural
ized, must be liable to arrest aod imprisonment by
any foreign power for acts done or words spoken in
this country; and, if so arrested and imprisoned, it
is the tin ty of the Government to interfere in his be
half.
lU. Of all who were faithful in the trials of tbe
late war, there were none entitled to more especial
honor than the brave soldiers and seamen who en
dured the hardships of campaign and cruise, and im
perilled their lives in the service of the country;
the bounties and pensions provided by tbe laws for
these brave defenders of the nation are obligations
never to be forgotten ; the widows and orphans of
the gallant dead are the wards of the people—a sa
cred legacy bequeathed to the nation's protecting
care.
11. Foreign immigration, which In the past has
added so much to the wealth, developement, and re
sources, aud increase of power to this republic, the
onylum of the oppressed of all nations, should be
fostered and eucouraged by a liberal and Just policy.
12. This convention declares itnolf iv sympathy
with all opprossod peoples struggling for their rights.
13. That we highly commend the spirit of m»g
nanimlty and forbearance with which men who have
served in the rebellion, but who now frankly and
houestly co-operate with us In restoring the peace
of tho country and reconstructing the South
ern State governments upon the basis of impartial
Justice aud equal rights, aro received back into the
communion of the loyal people; and we favor the
removal of the disqualifications and restrictions im
posed upon the late rebels In the same measure as
the spirit of disloyalty will die out, and as may be con
•isteut wiih the safety of the loyal people.
'14. That we recognize the great principles laid
down in the immortal Declaration of Independence,
as the true foundation of democratic government
and wo hall with gladness every effort toward mak
ing these principles ft living reality ou every inch of
| Ainertetn sssL.
