The horso ilisenso which is occurring in
the illileroiit cities outside- of Now York
and which hail caused a great deal of ex
citement among Htablo keepers and car
companies, has nindo its appearanco in this
city, causing tho greatest panic. Tho dis
ease appears to have appeared first in the
city in magnitude, on Monday afternoon,
nltuough there weYo some few cases of an
earlier date. Contagious qualities of tho
disease aro very violent, and within twenty-four
hours from tho timo thellrstsymp
toms of sickness were noticed in one largo
stable ouo thousand horses under tho same
roof were similarly alllictcd. A reporter
who has visited the principal stables states
that no less than seven thousand horses in
nil wero alluded. Up to yesterday even
ing tho horses of tho diU'erent stage lines
and street car companies wero all more or
less affected. On the Oth avenue railroad
lino two huncred horses wero stricken
down in four hours, the company being
compelled to withdraw somo of their cars
Over two thousand horses on tho 3d
avenue lino are suffering. In the stables on
tho 33d street stage line somo ilvo hundred
horses aro laid up. Up to midnight Inst
night no deaths occurred except iu the Gth
avenue stables. In Urooklyn the disease
is reported to be spreading. It is gravely
apprehended that the disease will spread
and materially interrupt tho means of traf
fic throughout the city. There are some
14 thousand car aud stage horses in New
York and if equine travel becomes stopped
this season the losses to business will be
very heavy. The disease is denominated
catarrhal fever ; it commences with a
cough. In about SO hours running from
tho eyes and nose is developed, tho horses
become weak, the affection being though
to be similar to the Canadian epidemic.
William M. Tweed delivered himself up

The bail of Thos. C. Field was declared
to be forfeited. Muvor Hall appeared and

Ni:w Yoiuc, Oct. 24. It is rumored that
Bonner's Pocahontas has the malady. 130
street cars and 50 stages have been taken
otl. Uleeding and drenching has been
found to be a failure, and many have died
from the treatment. Among various rem
edies used is a solution of tar and bella
donna aconite and Taylor's compound
food product, of Manhattan Feed-mill
Company. The last mentioned is the
only remedy which has met with marked
success as a preventative and cure.
Various reports of the horse disease are
received up to this evening, but it is gen
erally conceded that no deaths accompany
it. Tho papers discuss various modes
of treatment, some being successful with
lobelia and others with tar, aud one per
son gives testimony of successful treat
ment by Phenic acid injections in the
veins. Great numbers of horses continue
to be afflicted aud nearly every second
horse seen in the streets shows signs of
being under tho influence of the disease.
Philadelphia, Oct. "4. Horse owners
are excited but have not lost a single case
yet. It is estimated that 3-3 per cent, of
the horses have the malady in various
stages. Eight to ten thousand sick.
Alarming stories are atloat that human
beings are subject to the infection, but so
far not authenticated.
Many cases of the horse malady aro in
Jersey City and vicinity.
A Urooklyn gentleman lias sent a com
munication to the agent of the New York
Associated Ps, stating that a sub cuta
neous injection of PlienU acid is a rapid
cure for the horse disease. The quantity
to be administered is small.
ItocHKSTKK, N. Y., Oct. '24. There was
a heavy frost last night.
The horso disease is severer than ever,
and none are to be seen on the streets.
Hand carts and porters are delivering
Tlie disease has appeared among the Ca
nal horses along tho lines. There is great
difficulty in procuring conveyances for
The horse disease has now spread to
every stable iu tho city. Symptoms con
tagious are visible on almost every horse
on the streets. Stages and street car lines
aro continuing to lessen their trips. At
about 8 o'clock yesterday evening there
was not a Broadway stage between thelJat
tery aud City Half. This morning that
thoroughfare seems to be almost without
vehicles. It is calculated that there are
about 1S,000 horses now aflllcted. Ani
mals attacked with the mnladv day before
yesterday have generally exhibited worse
features and it seems evident that they
were standing cases from Monday. On
Sunday tho crisis can yet hardly be said
to have arrived. The continued working
of aflllcted horses is beginning to tell In
the rapid increase of dangerous cases.
Not many deaths have been reported as
yet, but it is known that deaths are oc
curring. It is the opinion of veterinary
surgeons that the distemper may not prove
fatal but horses w ill sillier sometime from
weakness. The Sanitary Committee re
ported to the Board of Health yesterday,
"That the disease was thought, generally,
not to bo fatal or contagious. The course
of it seems to be : Say, Friday the animal
appears to be sick and on Saturday worso ;
Sunday the malady attains its climax.
On Monday tho horse improves, and on
Tuesday is almost fit for work." Its ellVct
on business has not yet been very severely
felt, but already the cost of draviiur and
cartage in some instances has risen to war
KocHKSTKii, uct. Tne liorse uisease
shows no abatement. The weather is rainy
and damp and the reports from various
atonies aro that they aro much woree than
they wero yesterday.
CniCACio, Oct. 121. Tho horse malady

Our dispatches for a few days past have
brought the most nlarmlng Intelligence of
the spread of n fatal malady among horses
In several of the Northern and Eastern
cities. Apropos to tho occasion, wo clip
the following, from the New York Evening
The horse) disease which has been so
prevalent in Canada has made its appear
ance in Buil'alo and Bochester, and it is
nntural to suppose that it will continue to
move eastward and southward. Tho
plague has been so general in Montreal
that great difllculty has been experienced
in keeping the street cars running and tho
Fire Brigade provided with horses, while
one surgeon has two thousand under Ills
care. The following description of the
disease and its treatment is taken from the
Bullulo Commercial, and is "worth pre
The early symptoms of tills disease are
said to be a light, hacking cough nud gen
eral dullness, witli an indisposition to
move ; cold ears and legs, witli a watery
discharge from the nostrils. At first tho
nasal membrane is pale, but as the disease
advances it becomes highly colored, and
the mucous discharge cnauges to a green
ish or yellow color and the pulse becomes
more rapid. As soon as these symptoms
appear the animal should be kept warm in
the stable by blanketing, and warm brau
mashes should be giveu.
A letter from Dr. C. Elliott, veterinary
surgeon of St. Catharines, contains what
have proved to be valuable suggestions for
the treatment of horses suffering from the
epidemic now bo prevalent among these
nuimals. Dr. Ellitt advises that the sta
ble be well ventilated, the horses blanket
ed and chloride of lime sprinkled through
the stable every morning. The nostrils
should be sponged out two or three times
a day, if the mucus adheres thereto. Tho
food should cousist of bran with a little
oats, ami a moderate quantity of nay. If
the bowels are costive, a halt-pint ot raw
linseed oil mav be civen : but it is proba
ble that the mash will cause stfcllcient relaxation.
Prescription No. 2 (given below) should
be administered every morning and eve
ning. If the throat should be sore which
can be ascertained by pressure of the hand
upon the larynx about two table spoon
fulls of prescription No. 1 (also given be
low) should bo rubbed in. So long as the
disease is confined to the larynx there is
but very Jittle danger, but should it de
scend to the lungs which will be indi
cated by the continued standing up ot the
animal, colli extremities and labored
breathing a half-pound of mustard should
be mixed with two ounces of turpentine
and water to the consistency of thick
cream, and the mixture rubbed well in
behind the forelegs or over the region of
the lungs. The legs should be bandaged if
cold. If tho pulse should be more "than
fifty-five per minute, fifteen drops of
Flemmiug's tincture of aconite should be
giveu every two hours, and if the breath
ing still continues labored and the pulse
grows more rapid, apply the mustard
again, aud give one nud n-half drachms of
calomel for two mornings. Tho following
are the prescriptions referred to :
Prescription No 1. Linseed oil, 1J ounces ;
turpentine, 11 ounces; liquor ammonia fort, 1
ounce. Mix nil together in a four-ounce, bottlo
Hnd apply to the thront, if you think it necessa
ry to do so.
Prescription No. 2. Nitrate potash, 11

P. S. If they are not very bad you
might omit the last ingredient, namely,
The recent nrotrncted dry weather has very
eerioUaly interferred with tho operations of
limners in tins locality who nro enueavoring to
