How the Cholera'is Propagated.
The letter 'of Dr. CharlOs A. Lee, Profes
sor of Hygiene in the Buffalo University,
Whidh was rend recently at the meeting of
the Now YOrk ilealth Commissitoners, is at
tracting a great deal of attentim, not oily
from the ntedikM1t fraternity,but. i1l front
citizens generniUy. Nbw theories in- regard
to the probability f cholurau ire, there ad-,
Vanced,. which are 0o fl\l of soutnd common
Ventse that 'theIy at bnve. tear -away all the
mystery wich h'a hit herto been surround
ing the ptogrese 'bf tiL dreadful disease.
While all inunicipaL corporation& are about.
hninking preparatiotts tg avert the, arrival of
tholera during Ihe co ing spring, it is well
tiint they should 1n116w that the only real
security of our people Against this disenise
is in carrying'out the.lnost thorough said
tary reforms, in personal, 'doiestic, nnd.'
civi cleanliness and purification; and .it is
a work which requires instant attenlion.
lrofessor Lee; in his letter to D-. Sayre,
our resident physician, gives'the following
as his reasons fo' the above injunctions:
"I hold that wo have batistfiitory evi.
dence that the disease communicated
'through the evncnations of those infected'
witi it, and in i. is any only. I could'ad
duce many nstatces where there, catn be iuo
qtuestion that the cholera has beetn convey
ed to hitherto healtity localities, by nmeans
of ono iifected perstn, in whom the dis
ease ins manifested itself only by an appa
parently trilling diarrhoa. Persons.so in
fected imaiy doubtless travel from one place
to another, without serious development of
the disease, and leave behind him in privies,
and water-closets 'germs which may give
rise to a deadly epidemic. ,It. is this Fact,
so generally overlooked, or not recognized
that, has thrown so much mystery over the
causes and modo of exteneion ot' the most
ftIal and mysterious malady. This fact
Also expliins.1hose appArent anomalies in
the progress of the disease, why it often
takes uo defined course in its wanderings,
bitt spreads indifferently in different qiar.
ters--now.whit the wind and now agaiust
-now follew the inain routes of .Aravel,
neverthele'ss often devinting iron licu. but
trav .tlig n0 fastor inany ease fan ships.,
railrond cprs and men travel. Those great
leaps wich it sometinisseetms to take, and
which live been supposed to he, owing to
the poison of cholera being carried by
winds, are thus sat isfatctorily ex.plaincl."
OUR SnNATons.-The Geterial Assembly
of the State have made a most happy selec
tion in assigning lion. A..II. Stephens and
t[on. iherschel V. .Johnston to ft high and
responsible duty of representipt the people
of Georgin in the Congress or the United
states. Atid while these gentlemen are
