The Board of Health met last evening in regular session. At thu conclusion of the reading of the minutes, the Secretary read the following very excellent report: Wi I. Ml no ton, Del., Jan. 6, 1879. To the Board of Health :— By request of the Board of Health, I submit the f »Mowing in addition to what has already been adopted : For the month of December, 1878.

The attendance lias been full and much activity shown in the per formance of the work reported ami re ferred to the various committees for their consideiation. Various complaints made to the Board during the year just closed, are classified as follows : Water in cel lars, steucii arising from cesspools, filthy gutteis, dirty alleys, offensive pig-j>enB, stagnant water in ditches, garbage su tier ed to remain on the pavements, filth in .Shipley run, had smell from tallow and other factories, bad smell from night carts, dead «logs, cats, rats, gnats, etc. The above consul utes about all the kinds of fiuisain*ts the Board have to contend e«l to with, except the standing nuisance, and one which deserves to be dealt with in no trifling manner, aye more than a nuisance, a fountain of death slowly but surely sending many to an early grave. This honorable body is aware of the fact but is powerless to check it. Forty thousand free and intelligent people know the fact that when they are slumbering in their beds at night, the stream, the clear, sparkling, gurgling water of the Brandywine is being pois oned, and the only moans made use of to stop this deathly monster is newspaper discussions and appointments of special committees, who sj*Mid their time in talking instead of acting. This Board has perfouued its duties weiland I a th fully, according to the means at their disposal. The estimated population of Wilmington is 40,(88). The amount ap propriated for th«r Health Department is $500, and $D8J to the Registrar of Deaths 1 Burials, making a total of $»8)0 for tlu* year 1879. The t*s< iur«ted population of the city of Washington I). C., is H »5,000. The ex penditures for 1877 in the Health depart ment, not including the report of'lie Reg istrar of deaths and burials was $32, 902 50. Wilmington, $d<)0 lu ad. I have no recommendations or advice to give on this subject, but believe it time, that tins department should not be overlook«« I and instead of the citizens being satisfie« with what some iires|M»i»Hible iiewspu|H*r clerk may write. They should appeal to this Board, where th. r« are men of intel ligence, men of learning, men who are willing to give the desired scientific in formation if they are encouraged by hav I Ingthe means at. their disposal The nui»uiu*e3 r«*p( rted durit g tlie pas year are a*» follows, ac«ordingto w auls 1 ... 3 rases ... 4 " ... 1 44 ... 1 44 ... 4 44 ... 1 44 First Ward,.

Th* committee on the impurities of the Bramlywiue water,have been poisiitent in their ell'ori» to stop the flow of poisonous matter In the stream, and have accomplished for this ci*.y much good, and they d «serve tli« thanks of this entire community. They have don«* all In .their power to a»op this flow ot pbou it matter with the means at tlieir com □land. I bag leuva to refer to mine maltera which may he for your advan »ße in the future : l)r. Tulllo S. Verdi, President of the Board of llealih of Waalmißlon, L. C., •ays, in his luport to the President of the United States in lbTJ : " A government should not he niggardly in the supply of water, any more than it abould ha in the supply of air. E»ery drop of water is a scavenßer, erery drop of pure water, is a diop of health, whan it is not poisoned." In relation to aewershe s.ys : "Woe to our city, wue to any sewered city, if the supply of water should he withdrawn a hundred, nay for fifty c naecutlve hours." A not lier »ery important rnarter is ilic ßucstion of wholesome food. It is made the duty of the Board of Health of Wash inß, D. C\, by an act of Congress, to pra »ent the sale of unwholesome food. "Yet the means giren hy th quite inadequate to carry out the law, says Dr. Verdi, iu his report, " we have but one inspector of food. I here aie in tlie District of Columbia seien large markets, about one hundred green gro comuionly so called, or people who and lisli iu stores. K.mif an cere, s« * 11 m* at*, vegetable It. is not wiibin human isjssibillty that should visit these places j regularly, even once iu two weeks, for I ihe public markets take all bis tim« There is no question in sanitary govern iuentf »hat aflect the welfare of ereiy citizen as this very question ot whole some food. It atlects the tich as well a • as the jioor, not only for a day but loi ' evc^ry day, ami tliat every tinie that 'he mw j used to sustain life." Gentle , tins very question should be the prevailing one, the uppennost in your minds ; it appears to be tlie very founda t'on and sapping stone to eur prosperity: pur«« aud wholesome food. William Wolf, Esq., food inspector the District of Columbia, speaking or meats in his rep«»rt to the Board of Health says: 44 Ae have three classes of butchers, tii st, our regular butchers, who sell tint class meat ; second class, who sell an article imported ; and the third class, who sell poor meats, devoid ot nu I mi one man lis ill is ■nun of triment, and used mostly in sausage. The butchers who supply our market have many disadvantages to contend with, not met in other ci'ies of our p«»p ulation ; our customers require the ten der tine cuts for brain work." Inspector Wolf, says.'When the farmer turns butcher, a suspicion is at once aroused ; them are those who would nut hesitate to dispatch an animal wuote leg had been accidentally broken, or some bodily fractuts impaired, and offer the fevered or diseased meat as food for con sumption in the cltv." These things de serve your 8|>eclal attention. This does not include the Registrar of Deaths and Burials. Our population bo ng one fourth or the real »out, ws have or all purposes In the Health Depart ment the sum of Gentlemen, the Registrar of Deatlis ami Hurlais has bsued for the past year over one thousand certificates for deaths, removals, etc. He makes out a moutlily statement of th* mortuary, and has it printed, and mails one hundred, tieside the other eu tries and Indexing, and recelv* a many communications, which take his time and attention, and as your Uecretary, he does the t»est he can for you, under the circumstances. Respectfully submitted, a E. B. Fhazrk, Secretary. On motion of Mr. Sharp, the report was accepted, and ordered to be record e«l upon lb* minutes. On b«dialf of the Committee on the impurities of the Brandywine water,Mr. Smith said:— 4 The committee have ao especial report to make, but would call especial attention, to some one who is writing in the newspapers, who appears to have more ktiowiedne about the Brandywine water than the committee themselves. 1 would way that the Brandy wine water has not for the past twenty five years been in as good a condition as at present. 1 think those persons who are writing in the newspapers and do not sign their names, is unfair; it seems to me that rhev have never visited the stream, os much as the committee. Dur ing the past year there lias been remov ed from the vicinity of the stream 130 cesspools, and a number of other nui sances abated, In fact all the nuis&DC<*s I might say have been ahatsd, with the exception of the dyestuff which comes from Bancroft fib H« »ns mills. The ques tion of abating that nuisance is a vexed one, and will cost money to settle. 1 of the opinion that iu time the nuis ance woiilii be abated. 1 think that the ciiy is equally derelict in their duty;they allow a large quantity of filth to run in to the stream, by not having their drains properly constructed, 1 do not think that w«* should order I he parties up the creek away, when the city authorities are equally as bad. Jn regaril to the notices that have appeared in the newspapers, I have ueitber the time or inclination to answer, perhaps the writers have their I do not think that the parties up the hen the city is equally as bail. The Committee on Accounts reported the bill of Win. Hickev far 82fi»>l, and John Lungreen, $28 41, as correct, and on motion orders were directed to he drawn foj the amounts named. )f Mr. Smith the Board ad el at the call of the I*rest to grind o blame o w it in fair ti cre«*k, On mou d to it* lit.
