SMALL POX SO DECLARED BY THE NATIONAL
BOARD Of HEALTH.
Washington, Jan. 20. The executive
committee of the national board of health
this afternoon declared small pox epidemic
In the United States and directed tbo in'
spection of several of the important quar
tino stations to determine that the regula
tions of the board are properly enforced
An appropriation of $5,000 is made for
the purpose of preventing the introduction
of the disease into the District of Colum
bia. The Women's National Relief associa
tion of the District of Columbia, having
requested Surgeon-Gen. LTamiltcn to desig
nate four hospitals to which Bhall be tent
such clothing, etc., as they may have on
hand for the benefit of the discharged pa
tients, he has selected the hospitals at St.
Louis, Chicago, Louisville and New York.
With two exceptions the Ohio river was
higher at this point yesterday than it has
been on any day during tho last ton years.
At about four o'clock yesterday afternoon
it stood at 45.62 on tho government guage
and was rising slowly. A statement of
the dates and measurements of the high
est stages of water at this point during
each of tho last ten years will probably be
of interest to the readers of The Bulletis,
and here it is :
1872, April 20th, 20.2; 1673, Feb
ruary 20th, 41.2; 1874, April 20th, 47.-
i 1S75, April 21st, 33.7; same
year, August 8th, 45.1Jf; 1870, April
tb, 40.43 1877, April 15th, 40.6; 1878,
March 17th, 35.8; 1879, January 2Cth,
30; 1880, March 23d, 44.5M; 1881, April
Oth, 45.9; 1882, January 21st, 45.6
It appears from this statement that the
only years during the last ten, which could
show a record of higher water at this point
than the present did yesterday, are 1876
and 1881 ; that only one year in the ten,
1870, can show as early a date for the
highest water during the year as does the
present, and then it was but 36 feet; that
in one year out of the ten, 1872, the highest
water camo in February ; in two years, 1878
and 1880, it came in March; in five years,
187274, '76, '77 '81, it came in April, and
in ono year, 1875, it came as lato as Au
gust. It is probablo that the river will con
tinue riso here a little while longer, and
may rcaoh a higher poiat than it has been
But "lot her come;" Cairo can stand off
all tho water the old Wabash, Tennessee,
Cumberland, Missouri,Missi8sippi,and Ohio
riven can roll down upon hor and not feel
tho least inconvenience either. Cairo didn't
suffer any in 1876, when the river stood at
46.4, which was tho highest water known
in ten years, and she would not stand in a
particlo "of danger now were it to rise
several foot above even that mark. Tat, it
would dd a great deal more damage to prop
erty, both above and below Cairo, than it
hat already done at its prelont stage.
Every inch of a rise- now will mean
distraction to tome propeit aome-
where and, therefore, with
eye full of pity and a bosom heaving with
anxiety for poor inundated Paducah
Nashv'Ile and kindred marshes, we hope
and pray that the flood will come no high
er. Standing upon this lofty eminence, at
the confluence of the two mightiest streams
in the land, we Burvey the fearful destruc
tion the raging floods have wrought 'round
about us, with a calm assurance of our own
safety, but with some feelings of regret
that the rebuke given to those who scoffed
at and defamed us, is so pointed, so hum
mating and so destructive.
MEN, WOMEN AND BOOKS.
MOTED IN THB INTEREST OB" THE CAIBO
'Mr. Longfellow is rapidly recovering
from his recent illness, and in spite of his
yeara is taking long walks."
"Mr. Browning's extraordinary rapidity
of work is shown in the fact, lately made
public, that his tragedy of "The Blot on the
'Scutcheon" was written in five days."
"The Meihodist University of Boston has
come into possession of $2,000,000 be
queathed it by Isaac Rich, the fish mer
chant, ten years ago."
"Paul Hamilton Hayne, tho southern
poet, lives in a rough cot of pine boards on
the Georgia railroad, about twenty miles
from Augusta; where, completely isolated
from the social and artistic world, he de
vote3 his life to conscientious literary work."
Mr. Roskin has determined to devote the
remainder of his life to making the museum
he has founded at Sheffield the most com
plete institution of tho kind In the world
He has lately given to it his unique and
almost priceless library, and a portion of
the books and plates have already arrived.
"Jcdoe A. W. Tourgeo is to be the editor
of the now illustrated literary weekly which
is about to appear in Philadelphia. Miss
Kate Fields is to have charge of a depart
ment devoted to co-operative work amoug
women; and Mrs. Louise Chandler Moulton
will edit a column on social customs, A
decorative art department will be conduct
ed by Mr. Donald G. Mitchell and Mr,
Louis C. Tiffuny. The paper, which is to
be called Our Contino nt, is to be stitched
cut and bound in colored covers, which
have been designed by Mr. Tiffany."
"Mr. Tennyson is not an ardent lover of
bis kind, ne has had a few devoted and
intimate acquaintances, but ho has been on
the whole self-sufficient. His pipo has
been his firmest friend througli life. Some
times he stays with Mr. Joweet, at Oxford
sometimes he visits Mr. Gladstone, and last
year he gave two or three quiet dinner-
yamca ai IWB Aiunuoa llOUBe. UUt no One
would speak of him as a "society man." He
loves long intervals of solitude as much
now as when thirty years ago he would
disappear for weeks togethor in the wilds
of Cornwall, and acquire, as he gazed upon
the tumbling Severn, that local color which
brightens his best works."
IHKKB additional volumos iu their
tasteful and inexpensive edition of Dr. Hol
land's works havo just been published by
Messrs. Charles Scnbner's Sons, Now York
They are 'The Puritan's Guest and Other
Poems,' 'The Mistress of the Manse,' and
'Concerning the Jones Family.' Like tho
volumes which preceded them, all have
had tho advantage of the author's revision
almost the last work, indeed, with which
tho lamented writer occupiud himself and
all havo maintained the high placo iu pub
lie favor accorded them in their firat ap
pcaranco. "The Jones family" has, perhaps,
gained most by the revision, being entirely
re-written and changed in form. It is ro
garded as one of the author's best efforts.
The personal types profionted havo their
counterparts everywhere to-day, and the
hits at men and manners are as apposite
now as when first penned. Tho edition is
a good ono to possess, and its inexpensive
form puts it within reach of all."
"It is, after all, to the private corres
pondence of men of letters that one must
turn for our best knowledge of them. Of
no one is this more true than of Charles
Dickens. His speech, like his dress, was
assertive. His public writings wore alloct
cd in stylo. But his private to his friends
lad tho charm of naturalness, of simplicity
and truth. It is impossible to read them
without having abetter appreciation of the
man and tho breadth of his nature. Seek-
ngonly to express his thoughts iu the
plcaaantcst way, ho gives at tho sumo time
full force oi his individuality. Tho third
volume of 'The Letters of Charles Dickons,
edited by his sister in-law aud eldest
daughter, completes tho publication of his
voluminous correspondent). These are
lettors which were not at hand wheu the
previous volumes wore prepared, and in
clude thoso already published in various
Ttiogrnphlcs, together with those addressed
to Sir Austen Layard, the Earl of I vtton,
etc. Thoy are published limply with ex
planatory notoa, as tho biography of the
author's life has been heretoforo comploted
They show every tide of the author' per
sonality, and with the two volumes already
published constitute the boat biography of

An effort existing without a cause is an
impossibility; tickling in tho throat, husk
nesa of the voice, yjolent coughing, etc.;
are the effects of a severe cold. Dr. Bull's
Cough Syrup cures the cold at once and
removes its serious effects. ,
There is more strength restoring power
a 50 CCnt bllttln nf Prbra rim
Tonic than in a bushel of malt or a gallon
of milk. As an apeti.er, blood purifier and
kidney corrector, there is nothing like it, '
and invalids find it a wonderful invigorant
for mind and body. See other column.

I found Miss Nightingalo, says a cor
respondent, reclining upon it lounge, by
tho side of which stood n small table
with writing materials on it. She held
my card in her hand, and, addressing'
mo by name as I nppronehed ami with
out rising, extended her hand and bade
me weh'onie. Florence Nightingale,
though of English parentage, wits Lorn
in Florence, Italy, in 1820, and is there
fore 61 years of ago, but she looked not
a day older than 46. Miss Nlghlngtilo's
features aro regular, hor face is nmooth
nnd unwrinkled, sho has an English
complexion, large brown eyes, and rt
well-nourished body, which would
weigh 165 pounds, so that she is not
now the slight, fragile person which tho
engraved portraits, taken just after tho
Crimean war, represented her to bo.
Nevertheless sho is, and has been, for
years, a sufferer. Had who- the health to
appear in public and to iill tho placo in
society and the social world which her
talents and worth entitle her to occupy,
sho would bo a most popular huly in
England. And. notwithstanding this
enforced retirement, I believe f lorouco
ixightingalo is to-day (perhaps except
