THE FEVER AT NEW ORLEANS.
Whence it Came and What it Cost. Reports of Drs. Chopin and Aus tin, read before the American Public Health Association. [Richmond Dispatch.] Dr. Chopin, president of the Board of Health of New Orleans, read a paper on tire yellow fever at New Or leans, which, lie said, was this year brought from Havana by the steam ship Emily B. Souder, on May 23. The history of the spread of the disease was given ire detail, and the sanitary condition of the city ably described. In summing up, the Doctor said ; "The expecrience of the present year with regard to the efficacy of a strict quarantine goes to sustain the theory of importation and portability of yell w fever. Witness Galves too, which has not developed a single case. Witness Shreveport, Monroe, La., and Natchez, Miss., with their shot-gun quarantines turning away pestilence; and witness, again, Mi bile, which has certainly escaped rn epidemic. "From the statement and facts given in the accompanying papers [which be submitted to the associa tion] it is an irresistible conclusion that yellow yever is not an indige nous disease of Louisiana or any other part of the United States, bnut that the many years whec it made its appearance in this country it could be traced, either directly or indirectly, to a foreign source. "We, in Louisi ir a operating under a quarantine law not absolute in its restrictions, after an earnest effort in executing it, conducted with all the honesty and energy at our command, assisted by incorruptible quarantine officials, have utterly failed in pre venting the importation of the pesti lence, which has thrtwo gloom ac:d sorrow over our whole Southwestern valley. No condlitional qunarantine can ever be niade effective because- first, of the laxity with which laws are unfortunately executed in this cor 'ry; nd csecondly, because of '1 ipidity of commercial interests wake, which will always move lim-avon and earth to evade success fully all quarantine laws and reguila tionus. "Thegreat object to be aimed at is to prevent the germs or fonites of this dreaded piestilence from having access to our ICpeople, and thie only certain and sure lprtventive of yelh.w fever, in miy humble ophiiioin, is abso lute non-intercourse with ports wiheme yellow fever is indigenous fromn rthlie slet of April to the 1st of Novemiber of each year. "Once eludicate this disease from the land, as it must necessarily be by our cold winters, and, gentlenen, mark my word, w, well never again be visited by r hI terrible scourge un less introduced from abroad." Dr. Choppin estimates the c:st of the yellow fever in New Orleans in 1878 as follows: Estimated number of cases. 25,000 Cost of ten days' sickness of each one at $3.......... $750,000 Cost of 4500 funerals at $25 each.................... 112,500 About two-fifths of4500 vic time represent each a capli tal value of *1000, amotnt log to................1,r800,000 Remaining three-fifths at $.00-----..-...... ...... 810,000 Loss of time of half the in dostrial. population-asy 28,000 people.-for ninety3 days, at $2 per day.. .... 3,600,000 Values destroyed by the epi demic..-.....--......... 7,072,500 Commercial losses by inter ruption of intercourse with the surrounding country and diversion of trade to other cities.--.-......... 5,000,000 Total losses...........$12,072,500 Estimated profits of the summer trade with ports where yellow fever neu ally prevails........$. $1,500,000 The difference between these two sums-say $10,572,500 - represents the actual cost of the epidemic to the material resources of New Orleans. These figures, made upon a basis deemed modernte in all particulars, show that a trade during half the year with certain tropical ports, and worth to our city a million and a half dol Ihn, 1s held at a risk of more than '" ylve millions-the actual losses frs1m yellow fever. An estimate of liiie total losses to our country fromm this epidemic has been made by Mr. A. B. Farquhar, in a letter to Sir geon-General Woodwoitlh, in which be places them at the enormous sum of S1JT,000,000. IrPJDsm IN NEW ORLEANS IN 1839. Dr. W. G. Austin, member of the Board of Health of New Orleans, fol lowed Dr. Choppin, and read a valu able paper. It was devoted in con siderable part to the epidemic of 1839, eomparlug it with that ofl878, which it was much like, and which, he thoaght, clearly proved was imported, sad not of local origin. In thirty fve years' experience in Louisiana and Mississippi, he was satisfied there has never been a stngle case origina ted there. The fever is indigenous to the climate of the West India Islands, the coast of Mexico and South America, within the tropices. It is brought to us in ships in fomities. Thei t spreuds notll: it reaches the air of a cold climate, when the germs hit and become harmless, for one of two reasons: that the germ has lost Its foree, or there is not an adapta tion of the atsimosphere calculated to absorb the poison. It is not ende-· mic in any of the Southern Statee. Dr. Austin proposes that 1878 shall be last year of yellow fever in New. Orean, "if we haill declares -onin Woeuresbetween all the ports where yellow fever is eonemic and New Or" leasr from the frst day of May natil the drat of November. Both Dr. Choipjpin and Dr. Austin spoke in handsome terms of the lib. eraliy of the people of the country t toa aellieted of New Orleans. That Pap Sacker, bnishigton P4t.
