The Aialancht ttates that a prominent doctor, of tb:s city, propounds an original theory rela tive "to rheutnatirm. He says it is caused by a poison, which collects in a littje bag J.st under the hearts of some persons, and when tbe bag bursts or overflowl, the poisea causes rheumatism jn the part thai it is carried to, and trha it je transferred, as ia some Ca.es, by the LloU 10 different parts of ths fj.tem, the rheumatism cLaages its seat The doctor claims that he has foens this poisoa bag in some tboss.nds of bodies that he has dissected.' Tb UicEti.'The' tices were' well at tended yesterday. 1 be first r.ce was ior a purse of ftfOO, a da.b of one and a quarter miles, open to thre. year olds. E.

We mentioned the fact, a day or two" since, that the Board of' County Commissioners refused to pass some resolutions of inquiry inte the administration of county affairs du ring the past few years, which were in. troduced bv Dr. W. H. White. This was certainly a very singular and unaccount able action on the part of those to whose care is intrusted the public interestsof the county, and will doubtless strike the public mind as an open defiance of an imperative-, public demand. It Is", we think, very generally conceded by every tax-payer in the county that such an in vestigation and exhibit as was contam plated by these resolutions, is urgently required, not only that proper informa tion in relation' to our county affairs may be laid before the people, but that those that are charged with administering them may have an opportunity of giving an account ef their stewardship. We do not know which members of. the Board voted id the negative when these resolu tions were before them, nor do we know the reasons which induced them so to vote"; but we th'" t legitimate subject of inquiry, and w should like te be en lightened. Dr. White, W8 think, will be sustained by the honest men of all par ties in this effort to have additional safe guards thrown arouad the public inter ests, and we trust he will continue to press the matter and bring to light any hidden "official" iniquity which may exist .
