Al this is my first opportunity, per mit me to congratulate the nutuorous readers of your excellent paper upon the enhanced ability, snrichtlinoss and worth which have resulted from , tho re cent change in your editorial room. Tho LinaEB, and pardon me for address ing tho compliment so directly to your selves, is now in tha regard of all with whom I have conversed, the newspaper of your city, containing as it daily dews the latest news, sensible and well con sidered editorials and an amount of gossipy paragraphing which cannot fail to address itself to the laslce and judgment of every intelligent class. But to give you some ac count of myself, since my exodus from tho dust, the heat and busy din of your thrifty metropolis. I am still upon the wine, here to-dav and away to-morrow, though I have just perched in a spot sufficiently attractive to induce a longer star than I have vet made anywhere. Here I can quaff the rejuvenating, spark ling carbonic acid, and bisulphuretted bvdrocen, combined with magnesia, potassa and alum, which gush up through husius of granite in the bosom of these classio hills, where Iaka and his dusky tribe held forest carnival ere they went to the happy hunting ground of their futhcrs. Six hours of a delightful ride brought me to the magnificent hotel of the Iuka Springs Hotel Company, into which I stepped with my party of ladies, eniuved a delicious bath, a sumptuous dinner, attended by the most polite of waiters, and was cared for at every turn by landlords of extreme hospitality, enterprise and liberality, who have lav ished expense, labor, taste and skill to offer every comfort and luxury which the fastidious can desire. I reached here just in time to attcud and witness the third grand masquerade and fancy dress ball of the season, and a delichtful occasion it was, be assured, Amonsr others who were upon the crowded floor during the evening, I was pleased to see some twenty couples from Memphis.

To nn article, prepared by Dr. Harris, T.cgistrsr ; of Vital Statistics of New York city for the tiso of tho Uoard ot Health, our attention has been called by a friend. We quote as follows : MSlSFICCTAVrS, AND HOW TO VSK THSSI. 1. Quicklime to absorb mointuro and putrid fluids. Use fresh stone lime, finely broken; sprinkle it on the placo to be dried, and in damp rooms place a number of plnts or pans, filled with lime powder. Whitewash with pure lime, not with calcimine. 2. Charcoal ruwder tu absorb putrid gases. The coal must be dry and fresh, and should bo combined wilh lime. This compoiiiid is the "calx powder," as sold in the shops. X Chloride of Lime'.n give off chlo rine, to absorb putrid effluvia, and to stop putrefaction. Us it a.i lime is used", and, if in cellars, or close rooms, th chlorine gas ia wonted, pour strong vin egar, or diluted sulphuric acid, upon your plates of chloride of lime occasion ally, and add more nf the cloride. 4 Sulphate of Iron (Copperas) and Carbolic Jcidlo disinleot the dis charges from cholera patients nnJ to pnrifv privies end drains. Dissolve H ot 10 pounds of the copperas in a common pailful of water, anj pour this strong solution into the privy, water c osut, or drain, every hour, if cholera discharges bsve been thrown in those places. For ordinary use, to keep pr vies and water closets from becomiDg olTt-nsive. pour a pint of this solution into every water closet pan, or 3'iy seat, eve.-y night and morning. If there ia cholera in the house, or district, let carbolic acid be added to this iron solution b-.lf a pint of the fluid acid to five gallous of ihe solution. Bed pans and chamber vessels are best disinfected with this mixed so lution, a gill at a time j.

To disinfoct a privy, or a quantity of earth that is contaminated by cholera excrement, or liable to be infected, UBe the mixed carbolic and copperas solu tion, saturated strength as follows : To every cubic foot of soil or filth give from one to three pints of the strong 'solution. To every privy and water closet, allow nt the rate of one pint, to be poured in daily at evening, for every four persons on the premises; this practice to be kept np while the cholera is in the country. The best sanitary chemists advise that tho estimated quantity of these privy and sewer disinfectants required for each person daily, in the presence of cholera, should be -half an ounce of sulphate of iron, and hslf a drachm or half a tea spoonful of carbolic ocid.

When you receivo a bouquet sprinkle it with fresh wator, then put it in a vessol containing soap suds ; this will nntrify the Btem and keep the flowers as bright tis new. Tako the bouquet out of the smls every mnruing and lay it sidcwayB (the stock entering first) into clean water. Keep it there n minute nr two, then take it out and sprinkle tho flowers lightly by hand with water ; replace it in the soap suds, and it will bloom as fresh as when first gathered. The soap suds need changing every three or four days. By observing these rules a bouquet may be kept bright and beautiful for at least a month, and will last still longerin a very passable state, but attention of the fair creatures, as directed above, must be ob ferved, or all will perish. , Elephantine Gam: ols. It is reported from Bucharest lht a Frenchman, named Poltin, had arrived in that city to exhibit two elephants, a male and female, the same which wen shown in Paris a few years since. Those ntiimals have killed their keeper in a singular manner. Tho male seized him with his trunk and threw him into the air, tho female caught him as he fell and threw him bark again, and this game at ball continued for a quarter of an hour. When asistance arrived it was too late every bone in tho poor fellow's body was broken.
