men our voters should support, and, elect

readers "talk up" the matter, and, on Satur
day next act from conviction.
Our much-esteemed contributor, "Ein
wiHid," complains that her poetical contri
butions, iobintbc" and "Treasure-Trove,"
were marred by chnnges, which were, we
dare say. misinterpretations 1 the manu
script. In the last named contribution the
word "loss" was substituted tor "roses" in
the line "my heart is only the roses of May"
a change that not only marred the sense,
but meter. It is true, as "Einwood" urges
that while missing words can be readily
supplied, or ambiguities remedied by the
good sense of the reader, of faulty prose,
similar mistakes or ambiguities in poetry
are not so readily understood and corrected.
"Einwood" is, usually, a careful writer;
but if she will write upon wi. l.-r paper, so
that she is not compelled to break her lines,
her manuscript will not confuse the vision
ol the printer, and insure greater fidelity
to copy. This done, and the proof "read by
copy," as it will be, in the future,
mistakes will, wc hope, be of rare occur
rence. As not a few of the citizens of Cairo
i feit inclined to ascribe at least i part of
the sickness that atUictcd the attaches of
Tiik lit i.M.1 ix ofiice, hi.st summer, to local
causes, the following testimony will.1 or
should, we think, qui-t nil apprehensions
as to the future. Mr. Woolen, the 1 1 -..lih
Ollicer. has p!ac d m our lends the fol
lowing statement : "I have tiioi-oii .h'.y ex
amined Tiik lb i.i.ktin building and
grounds, and find even thing in a good san
itary condition. 1 extended my search un
der the main building and find it in a
cleanly condition and thoroughly and lib
erally i.isinfeeted. The out-hof.ses, of
which complaints were made la-,t summer,
have been torn down, tlie vaults tilled with
lime umi earth, and new buildings er-cted.
The grounds have been reli "ved of al! rub-
i bih and put in good order, and I can con
scientioiisly say that it the balance of the
city were in as cleanly a condition, I might
rest from my labors and con.-ider my duty
( ur business, manager spent an hour,
yesterday afternoon, in Mrs. J'rot'. Alvord's
department in the Thirteenth street gram
mar school. The legular annu d examina
tion was in progress, and the readiness with
which questions were answered, and the
facility w ith which the problems submitted
were solved, told of n thoroughness credit
able to scholars and teacher and certainly
gratifying to parents w ho w ere there to see.
The reading class, all the members of which
were tind-rleii years of age, did remarka
bly well. The class in arithmetic has
advanced under Mrs. A's. instructions as
tonishingly. It numbers about twenty pu
pils, and each, in turn, disposed

we have neither time nor space for fiirthei

it' she had not previously enjoyed
a mod enviable reputation as a teacher,
she might safely "rest her laurels" on the
work she has achieved in the room she now
has in charge. The rapid, solid and safe
advnncement. of scholars; the strict observ
ance of sensible discipline, and, withal, the
mutual feelings of love and respect in
teacher and children, have won for the lady
the good will and heartiest commendations
of the patrons of the school, and has won
for the school itself the designation of
"model department" of the Cairo schools.
-Accepting the past experience) of the
South as a sate criterion by which to judge
of the I'll lu re, ve would h ive but little oc
casion to apprehend the outbreak of the
yellow fever again during the coming sea
son. The disease has never appeared in
epidemic form in any locality in the. South
two years in succession, While this fact
will, and ought to, go fur to lull fears re
specting the immediate future, no man
should compose himself into u feeling
of cnitseintis security, and view all precau
tionary measures that may lie adopted, iw
idle ami unnecessary. The appearance- of
the yellow fever in the South lias always
been irregular and fitful. Sometimes a
period of ten or twelve years
intcrveiiiM between its vialts; then again
it appears after an absence of six
years, four v-ars and one year. Thai
it has never appeared two years in siicccs-

APRIL 2. 1870.
1 measures of prevention ami cure. This foul
places were made clean, and the infected lo
calities were thoroughly disinfected, so that
the warm weather of the succeeding year
found no congenial spots wherein to breed
the pestilence. In the West Indies, in
Hrazil and in certain points in Central
America it has been known to rage as
often as six or seven years in succession.
This was so because the inhabitants had
learned to regard the annual appearance of
the scourge as a matter of course, ami made
no effort, hy the adoption of sani
tary reforms to keep it out.
Hence we have proof that is very conclu
sive that the South has not been alllicted
two years in succession, because the con
ditions that invited and nurtured the
germs ol the disease one year, did not ex
ist the succeeding year. The conclusion
enforced from this state of facts, teaches
the authorities of the South, the authorities
of Cairo, and of all other localities to which
the germs of the deathly epidemic may lie
transported,- that it is a duty they owe to
the people they represent, to proceed, with
all due industry, to the work of renovation.
Cairo has made an encouraging commence,
ment. Hut much remains to be done- the
death-breeding Hastiness hidden under
the hovels of the city the
damp and mould the decaying
timbers; the slop and tilth of kitchens
all this, hidden away from common observ
ation, is the most fruitful source of disea-o;
yet it all p'inains to be hmked after. We
mention this in no complaining mood; for
the Health Ollicer i pei forming his duty
