It strikes us that a largo portion of the
very considerable numbor of persona
within tho dominion of Undo Samuel,
who Insist Hint Cairo Is tho very float arid
center of chilli and fevers, In wilfully
Ignorant. Tim experience of tho tens of
thousands of troops wiio rendezvoused
hero during tho recent "unpleasantness;1'
tho experience of olhor thousands domi
ciled here; and tho very emphatic and
widely published reports of tho surgeons
stationed hero in the military hospitals
from tho year 1S01 to 1805, furnish evid
ence of the hcalthfulnesa of this locality
of which few men of even ordinary In
telligence and observation, anywhere lu

ent of this, tho one million
traveler, annually brought hith

not have overlooked the perfect pictures
of health to be seen on our streets, in our
schools, our churches, our places of busi

factswnd strong probabilities, it requires
a vast amount of charity to ascribe the
