The "Impure Milk" Investigation—
Report of Committee.
The subjoined ia the report made to the
Mayor, last night, by a special committee of
citizens, appointed at the request of tho dairy
man: : . ,
CINCINNATI, OHIO, August 24, 1859.
To Bit Honor S. M. Buhno. Manor of the
city of Cincinnati Sir: In obedience to writ
ten notice given us of our appointment, by
you, as a committee to investigate charges
ngHinai oeroey van liner, aims own request,
"lor selling Impure milk," the undersigned
availed themselves of the conveyance, you
was so kind to send to our places of busi
ness, and, to-day, visited tne dairyfarm,
occupied by Mr. Van Laer, a short distance
from Ludlow, Kentucky. .. '.
wetound,on the place, fortv-three cows.
and personally examined their appearance
and condition.
To properly understand the charaoter of
tbe milk, and the previous condition of the
cows, we took the testimony in the presenne
of the owner of the dairy of Mrs. Elizabeth
Hopkins, wno says that she resided on ir.e
tnrm colore too dairyman moved on it. Mr.
Van Lear keeps his cows, during the winter,
in stables, on the Plnnk Road, in Storrs
Township, just below Cincinnati, but, durum
the) spring, summer and fall, they graizo on
this Ludlow farm. Hore the pasturage is
abundant, and the cows have access to a
reservoir ot spring-water at all times, and no
still-slop is fed to them on this farm. Some of
those prosent, on that day, eavo thciron nion
that the cow was buckeyed, or poisoned
mai several visitors irom uncinnauwere pre
sent at the time and knew of the occurrence
he described the oondition of a large brindle
cow that, for a long while, bad a soro on her
teat, which was so tender as to cause her to
kick at those attempting to milk her, and she
was always taken to a corner and chained be
fore she would give down her milk. Theoom-
oiitteo examined this cow and found her as
described; a large toab still covering the sore.
The proprietor confirmed the narrative of the
witness as to tho speciQo cases of sore teats,
and of the death of the eow, which the wife of
the proprietor, herself, acknowledged had been
indisposed for three weeks, partaking of but
little food; but they oonteoded although bo
suffering the milk was good. Barney Nieteot,
driver of the milk cart, says he has been with
Mr. V.li. for two years, but thero baa been, to
bin knowledge, no lumpy milk put in the oans.
J. be oows were not sick, bat a few teats, as
stated, were tore.
Mrs, Hopkins testifies that of the thlrtv
oows brought over last May, six of them had
diseased udders, ss she discovered In a few
days, from being called upon to milk them.
Their teats were raw and swelled, one or two
giving bad milk, thick, feverish and lumpy,
like staroh, for she had milked suob in tbe
cans. On being Interrogated why she did so,
she said ahe was employed for othors, and it
was not her business to pour the milk out
tbe proprietor Knew tne mtikt was from tne
oows whose dugs were sore, for he and his wife
bad complained that they never had such
trouble before as this one eow had caused
them. The witness obtained roots, and, with
sulphur and other matters, made a salve for
thein. cue says Mr. v. L. had got out of pa-
tienoe, himself, with the delay and trouble
thus brought upon htm. AU this time the
milk was carried off, and, as she supposes,
told.
She described a cow, whose milk, when first
given down,"would "spirt out in lumps;" Mai
having been milked on tbe ground, the re
mainder of the milking was placed in the
cans.
Three other oows gave milk wbioh would
not foam, and that, In ber opinion, was not
good milk: and of one cow that the proprietor
had said that he would not drink it himself
for three dollars; that tbe pew cows purohased
were not so sheeted. She ueconbed the sud
den death, as if of staggers, of a eow, whioh,
up to the day of her death, had been con
tinuously milked.
Five oows, from our observation, bore evi
dence of disordered udders and sore teats; and
from milking two of the teats of one oow, a
thick, lumpy, dotted mass exuded. We regret
that the testimony is to be taken as to only one
dairy, for it may be that the party affected by
this examination, is not so bad as numerous
othors, who make a business of making money
at any event, by selling all the milk they oan
obtain from oows, at small oost, whether
healthy or unhealthy. But the range of our
duty is clroumsoribed to this individnal cafe;
and we say, emphatically, we would not like
to use the milk ourselves, and we oannot
reecommeud the public to do so. Those who
furnish a groat city with milk, should rcjeot
from their dairies all oows affcoted as several
of these are.
None but good milk should be mlnzled in
the draught portioned oat at our tables. But
we should not have been sent to Kentucky, to
expose bat a slight portion of this evil the
Oreeks are at our doors I We believe the case
of Mr. V. L. is infinitely 'bettor than many
others in and near tbia city. His cowsare gen
erally in good eonditien, with tbe exoeption of
those mentioned, and we believe those were
diseased from rlose confinement in tbe atableB
on this side, where they are fed, during the
winter, on still slop.
$3" A meeting of the lot-holders of the
Catherine-street Graveyard, was held, jester
day afternoon, at the offioe of Enquire Marchant.
The oonduct of the Trustees in disrespecting
the place was the cause of the meeting. It
was stated that a portion of the ioclosure had
been parposely destroyed, and that hogs and
oatt)o wero allowed freo use of a part of the
grounds; that a partition fenoe erected at the
expense of the lot owners had beon destroyed;
that a stable had been built over some of tbe
graves, and that the horse of a minister had
been allowed to ramble at pleasure through
the cemetery, The object, it was stated, was
to destroy the charaoter of the cemetery and
force a removal of the dead, that the grounds
might be resold for the benefit of the churches
interested. '' . ,
Commendable feeling was displayed by those
at the meeting. It was finally decided to ap'
point a oommittee of five to consult with the
Trustees, and learn whether they were willing
to repair the inclosure and the general damage
that had been done to the grounds, and report
to a futuro meeting of the lot owners. ' Messrs,
N. Marchant, F. Harrison, A. 0. Brown, D.
Ross and Samuel Martin were appointed the
committee. The next meeting will be held at
the call of the committee. 1 ' ' ' 1

Theater Thk Pakodi Or era
Taonra. An Opera Tronpe, with a full and effective
chorus, is a ubrelty in Cincinnati, and one ot the
great doftclencios that baa hitherto attended tbe rep
resentations of operas in this city, Is that tbs chorus
boa been vary Imperfect, and wanting miruorlcal as
well ss musical strength. The Parodl Opera Troupo,
now perlortning at Wood's Theater, are the first to
present to Ibis community au opera possessing this
Impartftiit accessory in perfection. Last nilht Ver
di's masterpiece, La Tkayiata, was performod to a
erltiral and dlscorningaudiouce.
The production of this Opura introduced a now
candidate In this city to public ,'avor, in the persou
of Bignora Alaimo, who sustained the arduous role
of " Violet ta," in a manaor that at once stntnped her
as a lyric actress of more than ordinary ability. She
gradually won the favor of bar audience; and in the
death scene she sang with .inch exquisite taste end
feeling, as to call forth a storm of applause. Siguor
Sbrtglia, as "Alfredo," and Signor Qnone, ss "Gior
gio," fully suataiutd the reputation which has been
awarded them elsewhere.
To-night the Opra of LcmiTi Boaara will be
presented with Parodl in the principal role.
tfSS The concert to be given by Mra.Varaln
James, at Pike's Opera-houso, to-night evening,
bids fa'r to b a rich treat for the lorera of music,
Ber rareand wondrous powers of song can not Dill to
be appreciated, if we are to Judge from tho enco
niums ef the Press. We hope that our citizens will
show that just appreciation 'of these merits sho ao
richly Uosorves, by filling that magnificent temple of
art this evening. Aa Mr. Pike has given Mrs.
James the free use of theOpora-housefor her concert,
our citizens, we are certain, will not fall to do their
part in giving hora liberal reception.
