In reply to this, Mr. Blair stated in

that is settled beyond controversy by

belongs to Congress to count the

London, January 25. According
to the British Medical Journal, great
alarm prevails in Eastern Europe
over the rapid spread up the Volga
River, in the southeastern part of
Russia, of an extremely fatal disease
believed to be a plague. It is thought
to have been brought to Russia by
two regiments of Cossacks returning
from the war in Turkey. The dis
ease was regarded at first as typhus
fever and neglected, but its terrible
mortality soon compelled the local
authorities to take steps for its res
triction. Rigid quarantine was en
forced aguinst Astrakan, where it
originated, but tha panic-stricken
inhabitants of that city fled in all di
rections, and scattered the germs of
the infection oyer the provinces of
Samara and Saratap lying along the
River Volga higher up. In spite of
all efforts at restriction, it soon reach
ed Tsaritzin, an important trading
town on the Volga, connected by rail
with the whole of ttussia and .Eastern
Europe, and finally appeared in
Nizhal Novgorod, only a few hours
distant from Moscow. Some Russian
newspapers consider the disease only
a species of malL nan t typhus fever,
but the St. Petersberger Medicinische
Wochinscbrift, of January 11th. says
it cannot be doubted from the tenor
of communications to official papers
tbiit it is a plague. Doctor Zulekauei
and Professor .Butkin conclude from
its rapid Bpreud and extraordinary
mortality, there being few if any re
coveries, that it is a plague .in its
worst form. A most rigid quarantine
is enforced against the infected towns
and villages, which are divided into
districts, and not allowed to com
municate with one another. Tho

if he could have been nominated for
president and elected the war would
have been saved, and the attempted

been choson to be president over

A New Zealand paper relates the
following : J. here is a dog at 1 aupo,
and also a young pig, aud these two
tillord a curious example of annual sa
gacily and confidence in the bona fide
of each other. These two animals
live at the native pah on the opposite
side of Tapuuehuniiu, and the dog
discovered some happy hunting
ground on the other side and in
formed the pig. The pig being only
two months old, informed the dog
that be oould not iwira across the
river, which at that spot debouches
from the lake, but that in time be
hoped to share the adventures of his
canine friend. The dig settled the
difficulty. He went into the river,
Btandinsr up to his neck in water, and
crouched down ; the pig got on his
back, clasping his neck with his fore
legs. The dog then swam aoross
thus carrying his chum over. Regu
larly every morning the two in this
way go across, and forage around
Tapaueruru, returning to the pah at
night; and if tbe dog was ready to
go home before the pig he would wait
until his friend came down to be
ferried over. The truth of this story
is vouched for by several who have
watched the movements of tha pair
for some weeks past.
A writer in the London Medical
Times argues that the general opinion
(hut frequent cold and warm baths,
ar.J 'wasiiing the skin with cold water,
accompanied by friction, are con
duuive to health and cun do no harm,
is a conclusion that cannot be ad
mitted; for, on the one hand, millions
of men take no baths of any kind, or

where baths aie frequently resorted
to, and in the country, where they
rarely can be got, says but little for
