(From the New York Herald ]
Having been strongly and repeatedly urged
by a 1*1 y sufferer at the National Hotel about ,
the middle of March, and who came under my
care during a relapse in New York about the
first of May. to publish my views of the malady.
I have thought it might be of some service pos
sibly to do so. as I have been in a position to
obtain information not only froui facts coming
under my own observation, but from scientific
men on the snot, who were personally familiar
with the whole history of things from the begin
ning up to the present time.
Having lived in the midst of the most mala
rial districts of the South tor a great portion of
my life, opportunities have been afforded for
becoming familiar with diseases of that nature
and their various symptoms. My opinion is. i
that bad air malaria will account for all the
phenomena observed, and that no other suppo
sition can
Some five or six years since diarrhoea whs
very prevalent at that hotel.
One gentleman was seized at the National
last October.
An eminent physician of Washington says.
'? The first ease of the diarrhoea I met with at
the National was in the latter part of Janu
arv "
It cannot be denied that several persons who
never ate anything at that house were attacked
by the disease Ihere were many who took all
their meals there through the whole season and
remained well.
It is not in proof that there were any case? in
the neighborhood A wide street bounds the
house on three sides.
Ladies who spent all their time in the build
ing suffered less than men who were absent a
good part of the time, thus eating at the house
less often than the women.
There was every grade of intensity in the
symptoms in different persons.
The symptoms themselves were much varied.
The attacks usually came on early in the morn
ing and suddenly, with a copious and repeated
discharge from the bowels of n light colored,
frothy, sourish fluid, of custard consistency,
without pain, griping, straining, tenderness,
chillness. or fever.
In most cases the stomach was not affected nt
all in the beginning, and theappetito would re
main good.
If the disease went on for a few days the
stomach l>ecame irritated and the food only was
thrown up. especially if the bowels had been
cheeked by opiates and astringents.
Sometimes very violent pains would be felt
in the bowels, seemingly due to spasm and flat
At a later period, inflammation, soreness,
tenderness, and fever would manifest them
selves. with loss of appetite, great thirst and in
a very few cases cramps
A copious rash appeared in a gouty patient.
There were few. if any, cased of bloody or
mucous stools.
The best results generally followed tho use
of absorbents and antiacids. such as charcoal
and magnesia.
The best diet seemod to be rice, farina starch
and the like.
Quiet and confinement were less bcneficial
than courageously keeping out and about.
Relapses most frequently occurred from im
prudence in eating. e'pecUlly meat.
The stomach was only secondarily affected
and sometimes not at all.
One man would eat a single meal in the
house, leave it. be taken sick aud remain so for
weeks; another would eat and live in the house
for days and weeks and escape altogether.
Several persons who remained in the house
and procured their uwq food and water did not
cscape an attack.
Many parts of the house were filled with a
most offensive odor, some parts were compara
tively exempt
No practical chemist has Critically examined
a body dead from the National Hotel disease
and declared under his own name that there
was any trace of a mineral poison. Examina
tions of the dead body have been critically
made without the discovery of arsenic or of
any other mineral poison, a* in the case of Mr.
Petriken. of Harrisburg. Pa. In epidemics
from bad air. this bad air including miasma,
that is decaying vegetation, as well as malaria
in geueral. such as chill and fever, fever aud
ague, diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera, yellow
fever and the like, half the people escape alto
gether. If mineral poison is in the food on the
table in sufficient quantities to aflect a single
persou decidedly, such effects will be observed
within a very tew hours, and not one in ten
can possibly escape altogether.
In large doses arsenic kills in five or six
hours, beiore inflammation take? place
In moderate doses there is inflammation and
irritation of the bowels, and death occurs in
three or four days.
In a third class of cases there is a nervous
irritation causing a kind of palsv or lockjaw,
hysterics, mania and the like. If death does
not take place in a few hours from arsenic,
there is inflammation of the stomach, as well
when it is applied to a fresh wound as when in
the stomach.
For a hundred persons to sit down to a table
and partake of food poisoned with arsenic,
oauting death in some instances or severo sick
ness wubin a few hours, and yet the greater
number to escape, is a chemical aud physiolo^i
eal impossibility.
Heat destroys the effects of malaria as to the
human body by rarifying it, and carrying it
above the breathing |?int. Cold brings it near
er the floor or earth, and in a more condensed
and virulent form Hence women sitting in
in warmer rooms with the larger supplies of air
from without through window crevices, suffered
less than men who were in colder rooms with a
supply of new air from frequently opening doors
trom the passages in the hotel, the outer doors
bein? kept closed
Mineral poisons affect the stomach almost in
stautly if in large do-?es, causing fearful vomit
ing" or excessive burning or pains in throat,
stomach or bowels.
A person entering a house in a tired and
wearied Condition, and breathing a concentrated
malaria while eating a single meal and then
leaving the hou-e. may very eisily imbibe a
fatal disease in that short time lrom the oj?era
tion of two causes?bis debilitated state and
the empty stomach drinking in the poison from
every swallow of saliva, until he eats, and then
the vigor of the svstein being expended on th??
digestion of the food in the st >tna h. leave*
other parts of the system projiurtionably weak
against disease engendering agencies.
Anomalous secondary symptoms and pheno
mena would attend the disease, from the fact of
the extraordinary combination of simple mias
ma with the more general malaria, and the ex
traordinary concentration of the gases from
sewers, ces-pu^ls kitchen offal, noisome cellar',
and the heat of cooking, washing and ironing
in the vicinity of the lower rooms of the build
ing. not very accessible to the out-d<?r air.
It is believed that not a single statement ha
been made in the preceding article that cannot
be literally substantiate I in a court of justice
by the tejtimony of personal observers of the
tacts of the case?the testimony of scientific
men favorably known to fame. The aim h:.s
been to write a reliable paper hoping that com
petent minds abroad, as weii as at home, may
vj able to deduce therefrom conclusions that
will shield the National from an unwarrantable
suspicion that there could exist, in the whole
extent, a sinzle heart so base as to attempt tho
death of the President elect, all regardless. to? ,
of the certain fatal consequences to hundred
of helpless women aud innocent children und
unattending fellow citizens.

Fun and Jn?tice Combined.
We find in the St. Louis Democrat, the fol
lowing amusing account of a little " Lynch
law affair that occurred on the steamer Minne
haha on her trip up the Missouri, in which the
public will he apt to recognize rather more ius
tice than in most case? thut have been tried by
that formidable judiciary.
Among our respectable passengers, was found
a verdant-looking youth running away with
another man's wire.
The melancholy fact having leaked out. it
was forthwith resolved that Judge Lynch should
call a special session of his august and sum
mary court.
Arrangements were soon made, sheriff and
judges hastily put on authority and dignity,
and the following writ was immediately issued :
In the name of the )
People, > Court of Judge Lynch.
Special. s*. )
Steamer Minnehaha?To any sheriff or officer
of the steamer Minnehaha, greeting :
We command you. in the name of our supe
rior court, now holding a special session on
board the steamer aforesaid, that you arrest
and bring forthwith into our august presence.
Don Juan C , if found in your Dailwick.
charged with grand larceny and the further
crime of adultery upon the high sens, against
the peace and dignity of the giant Republic,
and within the immediato cognizance of this
high court.
And in this fail not upon your peril.
Given under our hand and seal of the Court,
this 29ih of Flora, and in the year of our court
the fifty-seventh.
Judge Lv.xch, Chief Justice.
Judge Chastity, ) Associates
Judge Purity, I Associates.
As usual, the sheriff of Judge Lynch's court
acted with astonishing promptitude and vigor,
and in twenty minutes from the issuin' of the
warrant, the guiltv Mr. C 1 stood in the
august presence of Ihc supreme terrestrial jus
tice. Having been regularly indicted, a petit
j jury was empannclled. and the public prose
cutor appearing against him. the Chief Justice
appointed counsel for the defense, and the trial
at once began.
The Court room?gent's cabin?was crowded,
and all eyes were fixed Opon the physiognomy
of the accused, while the aforesaid countenance
grew white and red by turns, as either fear or
shame took possession of its possessor.
Witnesses for the prosecution were examined
one after another, and all testimony went
straight to show that the lady was put on board
the Minnehaha at Council Bluffs, by her own
leige lord, and that the prisoner came on board
at the next landing and took possession of her
as his own wedded wife, and that as rucu, they
had roomed together since. Parties fr?.m the
Bluffs, who knew the injured husband, testified
! to his marriage with the frail lady passenger,
, which transpired only some two months since.
The case looked dark. There was no testi
mony in contradiction to the above. The prose
I cuting attorney looked triumphant. The jury
j grew solemnly dignified. The chief justice and
hi* associates waxed still sterner and looked
more morosely grave. The counsel for the de
fence took the prisoner to one side?a few mo
ment's conversation ensued, and again they
appeared in court. The counsel and nis unfor
tunate client seemed like men in desperate
circumstances. Hope and fear alternated on
their expressive but diabolically sedate coun
tenances. At length, however, the counsel rose
! and put in the following document ns ooaclu
' sive and sufficient evidence of the innocence
and purity of his client. Amidst mingled
hisses and murmurings of wrath, it was admitted
as evidence in court:

Be itTinown that I. Simeon Shoemaker, jus
tice of the peacc of said city and State. reusing
special confidence in the statement that an un
Jleasant row has existed for some time between
ob Q and his wife Betsey, do hereby dis
solve the bonds of matrimony heretofore exist
ing between them, very much to their mutual
di.?gust. And furthermore bo it known that I,
having been duly elected to this position by the
Mormon vote. do. in harmony with the sublime
(?olygamic doctrines of Saint Brigham Young,
lereoy seal and deliver over the said Betsey to
C , Esq., to have, to use, and to hold in any
manner that to him may seem good. Witness

D. 1 Sji. Simeon Shoemaker. J. P.,
andex-officio marriage breaker and maker.
This record, from the authenticated docket of
Esquire Shoemaker, was introduced with ap
parent confidence on the part of the defence;
and the prisoner being put on the stand, testi
fied in substance the same thing, assuring the
jury that he was the husband of Mrs. Q?ley.
The court, however, ruled that Shoemaker had
no authority in law. and did not amouut to
much as a man. and that the prisoner was an
unmitigated liar. The Chief Justice then launch
ed out into a moral dissertation, distinguished
alike for its purity and beauty of thought, and
its elegance and chastity of expression.
The jury retired, and in just one hour and
twenty-live minutes, returned with the following
verdict :
We. the jurors, of this august court, after
solemn and deliberate deliberation, and reflec
tive consideration in the momentous case sub
mitted to us, do find?

pired on the first of April. 1857.

to grant a divorce in the case of Q. r?. Q.

We recommend that C. be put upon a log and
sent down the river rolling. That Mrs. Q. be
locked up in the state room and kept securely
until she arrives at her place of destination,
and when she shall be delivered over to her
friends; and that sentence be executed forthwith.

While the judge was preparing to pass sen
