RaiCMATic Theory. 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.'

I Coomty-. AfrAiRS. 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 . ' -
