The cattle plague is sensibly declining, and the
sensation it has produced in the Provinces con
sequently subsiding. It seoms to have been the
most terrible in its ravages in the County of
Cheshire, on the Western coast. The farmers in
that county have lost, it is estimated, some 65,000
head of cattle, valued at ?900,000. Groat efforts
have bcon constantly made to relieve tho plague,
although thore is much complaint of the want of
Parliamentary legislation on the subject.
The l'iitt-rnal Revenue Rureau, acting under the
general law, requires all citizens of the South to
render income- returns for the year l8-, as well as
for 1855. Homo of tho rebel officers residing in
Alexandria, Va., are startled by the calls of the
assessors upon them to furnish the required state
ments, and are surprised that the rations received
by them in tho Confederate army aro estimated at
forty cents per day. One of them expressed his
roadioees to pay his taxe? in Confederate money,
but this was declined.
The Salisbury (N. O.) North State says: "We

FRIDAY MORNING, MAY l8, 1866.
Time was when vaccination was considered
an invention of the evil one. It was tempt
ing Providonco to insure against small pox.
The UB9 of lightning rods waa pronounced a
heresy that could not be compounded for.
Fire insurance in that day was looked at only
as a temptation to the house burner. Bat the
introduction of umbrellas, ooonn steamers,
coal gas, chloroform, and improved machine
ry of every kind, wae opposed in precisely
the same manner, and by the same staunch
Bat in all these and a thousand other in
stances of the same nature, Truth has event
ually triumphed; and Superstition with her
multifarious subterfugea been swept away
with the dingy cobwebs of the ages. Insur
ance of every description has bad to contend
with theeo obstacles. Ignorance blindly op
poses the new ; superstition finds arguments.
Thus in the matter of Life Insurance, there
are persons still at this day, and in this en
lightened country, who object to insure their
lives, because,-they think it is speculating
upon death-and that the wioked insurer
must therefore meet with an untimely end.
This may sound very absurd to some persons
and there are perhaps comparatively few
with sufficient candor to express such fear,
however many may hold the theory in their
The arguments in favor of Life Insurance
are so numerous and so self-evident, that we
soarooly know where to begin. There are
few principles so widely acknowledged as
this, that it is the duty of a man to provide
for his family. It ia one of the instincts of
our common nature. And while life lasts,
the husband and father plods and toils, to
supply present wants, and provide for future
contingencies. This la6t mentioned endeavor
is still further fostered by the almost univer
sal desire in the human breast, to accumulate
property. But an all-wiso Providence has
decreed, that riohes are the lot of but com
paratively few. The vast majority only "live
from hand to mouth." And when life's fitful
dream is over, and they are called awry from
thoBO they love, their lost hours not uufre
qaently are much disquieted by thoughts of
the destitute condition in which they are
compelled to loave the objects of their affec
To meet casca suoh as these, wiso and be
nevolent men, many years ago, devised means,
whereby a man oould secure a comfortable
independence to his family after his death,
by annually paying a small premium. This
ia a much suror method of accomplishing the
end than would be a mere Savings Bank ; in
the latter you can withdraw your savings at
any time, or you oan cease to deposit ; while
in a life insurance company, the contract de
mando that your premium be paid annually ;
and nothing oan be withdrawn until at your
death thoso for whoso benefit the insuranoe ]
was tiffeotod rocoivo the sum stipulated. This
premium, with au effort, almost every man
can manage to pay, and thus seoure not only
this sum, above the accidents of temptation,
failure in business, and various other contin
gencies,-bnt he invests it in the most profit
able mannor, where it will yield the largest
return. This we will not now stop to elabo
rate. This duty performed, a man may say :
"Non otnnis mortar," in a sense ne?er con
templated by IIoRAfg.
Insurance of every other kind is more open
to objoction than this. Fires may or may hot
ooour, it is e matter of chanco ; so with ma
rine and other disasters, for which insurance
may be effected. If a man oalonlates on his
look, as we know some men do, why, he may
chooso to risk it. But in the subject of life
insurance, this is quito othorwieo ; hero death
ta one of the parties to tbo contvoot, and the
event upon which the contract is based, is
Bare and cortain. The ineluc labile fatum must
overtako UB all. Thero is. not the slightest
danger thoroforo of yoi?,?; paying your per
nanum, und your heirs not coming in atsonio
time for the amount 'joutraoted.
But tbo poet say j; ??AH men think all men
mortal but therjBclvos." We havo kuvwn
men who could not bo inducod to purchase a
lot in tho ceiTjetory, becauso tho thought of
"tho last of earth" was unpleasant. It is
woll known that many persons neglect mut
ing a wi.'il for tho sanio roason. The duty jp
readily acknowledged, but procrastination g
called in to relievo the poor man of tho un
comfortable state of feeling, producod by bo
iag reminded of these very impolite subjects.
And thus vory ofton a man with the best in
tentions in the world fails of making duo
provision for his family. Arguments avail
not against this apathy, for it is neither justi
fied nor defended. It is only by frequent re
currence to the subject, that a lasting im
pression can be expected to be made.
Wo of the South have perhaps been lees in
the habit of making such investments than
any other people of tho same status of civili
zation. And there wero many reasons for it.
But now these reasons no longer oxist. Many
of us havo been entirely stripped of our
worldly possessions. We have nothing left
but brawny muscles and willing hearts. It
becomes as, therefore, to look about us, and
seo where we can make tho most sure and
profitable invostmont of tho scanty, hard
snved yearly earnings, with a view how best
to provide for our families, after our domiec.
THE SMALL POX HOSPITAL.
Wo paid n visit, a few dayB ago, to the
aforenamed civic institution, situate on the
outskirts of the city, on what is known an.
the Schutzenplatz; and as it is not likely that
many of our readers will shortly go and see
this establishment for themselves, we thought
a brief account of its operations may not
prove uninteresting at this time.
Dr. S. C. BEOWN, one of the City Physi
oians, took charge of the "Pest Ilouse," (is
the place ia very often called,) on tho first day
of January. There was at that time but very
scanty accommodation for patients, and com
plaints were loud and frequent As we did
not examine the Hospital at that time, we, of
course, cannot say whether these complaints
were just or not But soon after Dr. PKI.ZEK
took oharge of the Health Department of
the oity, there was an entire change in the
management of the placo. By the arrange
ment made between the Mayor, on the one
part, and Surgeon DKWITT, on the other, the
United States Government furnishes rations,
medicines and hospital stores for this institu
tion. The energetio physician in oharge
visited the place daily, and saw to the com
fort of his patients, and so successful has this
exemplary administration proved in the re
sults of the hospital practice, that it must re
flect the highest oredit on the physician who
was instrumental in introducing such a laud
The grounds and buildings are admirably
adapted for the purpose, and are by no means
as muoh damaged as we were led to suppose
by a report on the subject, recently laid be
fore City Council. The main building has
two floors,-the upper one a ball room once,
ia now a largo ward, filled with rows of bed
steads, covered with comfortable bedding.
There is another ward down stairs, where the
nine-pin alley gives proof of the changed deeti
ny of the place. A well arranged dispensary,
under the charge of the -Steward, Mr. REIO,
is in an adjoining room, where our old friend,
Mr. KAMLAII, used to dispense his more palu
table physio. The rooms aro kopt c1 eau, and
well ventilated; and while it is, of course,
not a desirable fate for the Schutzenplatz to
serve as Small Pox Hospita), it is unquestion
ably the best locality in and about Charles
ton that oould have been procured.
It ia pretty generally known, we presume,
that there has been a good deal of small pox
here during the past six months. The disease,
however, has abated very considerably, and
there are very few new oases now ooourring,
and, in the course of another month, we
should not be surprised to leam that the lost
patient had boen dismissed from the Schutzen
platz, and that Dr. PELZER had olosed |its
Before proceeding to the statistics we must
remind our readers that the oases treated in
this Hospital, with very few exceptions, have
been paupers,-a large majority of them
homeless colored refugees, whose constitution
was muoh impaired by want and hardships
in its varied forms. That the mortality, under
these circumstances, should have been so
Blight, is no small oredit to the surgeon.in
The number treated in this Hospital, from
January 1, 18C6, to May 1, 1866, ia 522;
deaths 119. Of these cases 251 are marked
"mild," [whiob, from the absence of all dis
tinctions in the report between variola and
varioloid, may be considered to embrace the
milder types of both,] and 271 cases are

vaccination as a prophylaotio are interesting,'
and will doubtless prove startling to many.
Of 256 patients known to have boen success
fully vaccinated prior to the attack, 21 died
(over 8 per cent.) There were 194 oases
known not to have been successfully vaccinat
ed prior to the attack. . Of these 72 died (37
There are many more pointe of -ntarest in
viting notice, but we have perhaps already

unprofessional readora, and will therefore
