-The medical officer of Liverpool, Eogland,
In his report for 1871, gives the following facts
- In reference to small-pox and vaccination:
Among 1616 cases of the disease, the rates o?
mortality were as follows: Among the no?
va cd nated, 56.4 per cent; whare one scar
was visible, 14.T per cent.; where there were
proofs of two vaccinations, 9.8 per cent.; and
where three scars were discernible, 7 per
cent. These facts go to show the necessity o?
repeated vaccination; a view which ls now
generally admitted. It' repeated vaccination
were generally practiced, under proper ad?
vice, the existence of small-pox as an epidem?

former, after a protracted, desperate contest, j
triumphed. Wu now 4ear thut Mr. John W.
Garrett has countered this rap by getting
through the late New Jersey Legis'ature a
charter for a short apparently insignificant
road, where, by through connections already
bargained for, the Baltimore and Ohio may
run its trains right Into Jersey City In utter in-1
dependence ot the Pennsylvania Central and
its henchman, the Camden and Ambo;.-. More
succinctly, each of the two railroad kings has
secured a clear track from the Hudson to the
Potomac, and will soon be running through
trains from the commercial to the political
metr?polis lu unembarrassed competition with
his great riva). Most heartily do we congram- j
late the public on these facts." '
* -The eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which
has been in progress lor several'days, has as?
sumed aten ible violence, and Intelligence ls
now communicated by the cable that two hun?
dred persons, inhabiting the villages at Its
base, have been burled by the lava. Thous?
ands of others have fled in dismay to situations
of safety, and the distress and excitement are
Intense. The event recalls but few parallels
in the history of Vesuvius. The first recorded
eruption of the famous volcano occurred in
the year 70, when Pompeii and Herculaneum
were destroyed. Then followed a long period
of apparent rest. In 1066 floods of lava were
again belched forth, and since that.tlme about
sixty eruptions have occurred. The most con?
spicuous ol these were In 1779, ia 1794, when
the town of Torre 'del Greco was destroyed; In
1823, in 1855, destroying the village of Cerc?lo,
and in 1858, '59 and '61, when the eruptions
were especially marked for their terrible gran?
-A letter from Newfoundland gives intelli?
gence ol the United States Arctic exploring
expedition, under Captain Hall,. received by
the Danish brig Meerbek, lrom Disco, Green
and. On February 28 the exploring steamer
I Polaris put Into Disco for fresh provisions. On
I the 8th of that month she had encountered
heavy weather, and run upon ice snags o.n
the peaks of Icebergs imbedded in sa^d or
mud. The Polaris was so damaged ti\at she
was only kept afloat by the united, exertions
of all hands at the pumps, and when she
reached Disco the company w.-re so exhaust* d
that another day at sea mus'u have compelled
them to abandon the vessel. The log of the
Polaris contained many strange discoveries,
which led to the conviction tbat in the ex?
treme and undiscovered north there ls at
times a genial atmosphere and open seas.
Plants were deteoAed In the ice which are in?
digenous to Southern climate?, and the exam?
ination o? a floating stick of wood, found on
Saturday, January 13, proved it to be a
limb of 8omo huge birch. The most Important
clue to the existence of a polar passage is the
fact of the crew of the Polaris having seen,
followed and killed a whale having In one ot
its flus a harpoon similar to those used in the
South Pacific; and this happened in a region
where, as Captain Hall Bays, "the sall ot an
American or European vessel had never been
given to the wind before." In May Captain
Hall hopes to make a clear passage to the un?
There are name ron 3 odds and end3 scat?
tered about in all the States ol the Union
whose votes, if concentrated in a Presidential
election would probably determine its result
in any contest. In addition to those odds
1 and ends which consist of all kinds of "isms"
and societies, there are foreign segments of
our population, which, if banded together,
would tell decisively. The two principal
fractions are the Irish and German. There
are, besides, considerable bodies of Scandi?
navians, Belgians, Hollanders, - Danes,
French and Italians, the votes of which
thrown together would materially affect th?
result in the States in which they reside.
The German vote, if cast together, can
j turn the scalejp the States of Pennsylvania,
Illinois and Ohio. The total German pop?
ulation in the United States is set down at
1,696,410. In the four States named it is as
Ohio.v.. 182,899 36,578
Indiana.... 78,056 15,611
The total Irish born population in the
United SUtes was in 1870 1,838,678, giving
a voting force of 367,735. The States in
which their votes will most strongly affect |
results are the following :
California. 54,421 9,070
Connecticut. 70,630 11,273
Indiana. 28,698 4,449

The Welsh, who are chiefly resident in
Pennsylvania and Ohio, and are for the
most part miners, nu ' ir 71,904, and have
ll; 984 votes. They are scattered through
the following States :

Illinois. 3,146 524
Missouri. 1,524 254
New York. 7,856 1,309
Wisconsin. 6.550 1,091
The Hollanders number 46,560 and have
7760 votes; the Belgians 12,474, with. 2076
votes. The latter are chiefly located in Wis- J
consio and Illinois; the others in Illinois,
Michigan, New York and New Jersey, about
half being in Michigan. The Scandinavian
population are chiefly settled, in the States
of Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa and Wiscon?
sin. Ia the. last three States they exer?
cise an important influence. In Illinois
they hare nearly or quite 2000 votes. The
Swedes are chiefly settled in Illinois and
Minnesota. In the first named State they
have over 5000 votes. There are also about
1500 Swiss votes in that State, while Ohio
has over2000. These votes ma" turn the
scale, especially as they are quite clannish.
The total populations before noticed'are:
Swedes. 94,443 15,740

'Under the new apportionment the next
electoral college will consist of 357 members,
of whom lt will require 179 for a choice. Ac?
cording to "Liberal" slate-makers, the Ger?
man vote, the Democratic and such Republi?
cans as can be drawn off will be likely, if a
coalition be formed, to carry Pennsylvania,

This estimate leaves out Virginia, ll;
West Virginia, 5; Nevada, 3; Arkansas, 6;
New Jersey, 9; Oregon, 3, which are confi?
dently counted on by the Liberals. Tbeir
vote is 37, which would swell the Liberal
vote in the electoral college to 224, and
would give a majority of 45. We have not
considered the colored vote in the above
classification. If the Presidential contest
be between Democrats and Republicans
J only, the colored people will generally vote
for the Republican candidates; but if there
be two Republican tickets in the field it may
be practicable to split the colored rote,

The Lancaster Ledger says that the
United Brotherhood, or Scott Ku-Klux Klan,
was organized by the notorious Thomas Jef?

was intended to secure the re-election of
Scott, the ritual of the Union League being
defective in that respect. The rilual of the
Brotherhood compels its members to vote

Tbe recent changes in the faculty ol the
Medical College of South Carolina are ex?
pected to increase its value to students of j
medicine, and make it eqnal to any sinjilar
institution in the country. Its clinical ad?
vantages are greater than can be bad io
any other Southern city, excepting New Or?
leans, tbe city hospital having two hundred
beds; and it is a matter for surprise that
any one should think of entering a Northern
college when an institution of the highest
class opens wide its doors in Charleston to
the citizens of South Carolina and the ad?

of his profession in Charleston, and who en?
joys, oesides, a national reputation, is the
emeritus professor of the institutes and
practice of medicine. Dr. F. Peyre Porcher

The chair of obstetrics is divided; Dr. J.
Ford Priolean being elected to the chair of
the principles and practice of obstetrics, and
Dr.' F. M. Robertson to the chair of gyn?
ecology and clinical obstetrics. The other
members of the faculty are: Dr. R. A. Kin?

professor of general pathology, pathological
anatomy and hygiene; Dr. Middleton Michel,
professor of physiology; Dr. Geo. E. Tres

The New England factories have largely
increased their prouts of late years. Count?
ing by decades they made: From 1820 to
1830, a shade over Sj per cent. ; from 1830
to 1840, just 10 per cent. ; from 1840 to 1850,
hardly 8j per cent. ; from 1850 to 1860, a
fraction over 5* per cent. ; from 1860 to 1870,
not quite 12 per cent.

It moat be remembered that mills in the
cotton region have great advantages over
tho New England factories. The saving to
the Southern mill-owner in freight, commis?
sion?, loss of weight, cost of site, ?fcc., will
enable him to make a handsome dividend,
while his Northern competitors are barely
paying expenses. One of the most acnte
manufacturers in the Sooth has made the
calculation that a mill-owner in Columbia,
for example, can stll his yarns at what it
costs the Lowell mill-owner to manufacture
the same number of yarns, and still realize
a fair profit.. This expresses in few words
the strength of the position held by those
who advocate the erection of factories
throughout the South. Well managed, they
must be a highly profitable investment: and
the indirect advantages to the sections in
which the mills are built must be fully equal
to the direct advantages reaped by the
stockholders. The mills will give the planter
a quick and satisfactory market for his
cotton; they will give employment to women
and children who now cannot find any work
adapted to their strength ; they will increase
the value of landed property; they will add
to the business of the SoalMfh railroads;
they will put in circulation amongst the
Southern people millions of money which
are paid, in the cost of yarns and cotton
goods, to the mechanics and factory hands
of the North. Capital cannot find a more
Burely profitable investment than in the
building of cotton mills in the South.
The Full Senate.
When the United States Senate, on Wednes?
day, decided to admit General Ransom as a
member cf that body irom North Carolina, Mr.
Thurman remarked that, for the first time
siuce 1871, all the States are fully represented
in Congress. Now that this much of Justice
has been done, tardily and ungraciously, how?
ever, the New York Evening Post says 'it
would be well to take another step towards
reconciliation and peace. The rule of the
bayonet has been gradually giving way to law.
although with apparent reluctance. At most, the
proscription ol the Southern leaders for politi?
cal offences cannot continue through another
administration. It would be an admirable
sequel to this act completing the representa?
tion of the Southern States for Congress to
adopt au act sweeping away all disabilities.
