After diligent inquiry nnd Invcstlga
lion, wo have been unable to he tr of any
case of small-pox in this city, and if tho
wlc and prudent precautions of the board
of health are icgarded us they should be,
there will be none. In this connection
it is well to observe, that the most eminent
medical authority are agreed
that re-vaccinntion at least cv
ci v seven vcars, is requisite to
insure perfect immunity from this loath
some disease. It Is supposed that within
that period, the human system undergoes
nn almost entire change nnd assumes other
and new conditions having thrown off
or exhausted the former constituents of
the body, and taken upon itself others
which require the same preventives as in
the first state. We repeat what wc have
before urged let no one omit to bo vac
cinaled, even if ho has onco been ; if tbe
virus takes, then he is assured of safety if
it docs not, he is equally safe, for it shows
thnt bis svstem Is prepared to resist tbe
disease. An ounce of prevention is worth
a pound cf cure.
