It contains some nlvaluable information on the proper treatment of yellow fever and should be carefully studied and preserved for referenoe by all readers of the STAR. A die tinguished pbysloian of tb is city whose opinion we solioited, told the writer that he was sat. lufied nearly all doctore here would endorse the euggestions made by Dr. Holeombe, ex cepting, perbhaps, the one oonoerning food, in reference t3 whioh It is thought no general rule can be laid down : I have a few earnest words to say to the friends, nurses and physieliane of yellow fever patients. There are three great anoses of the large mortality in this disesee. 1. Special intensity of the poison soting upon the individual case. This cannot be foreseen or prevented. This casoe le irremediable. Fortunately these malignants ases are rare. 2 Irjudloleus or lnefolont medical treat moet. This subject, belonging espeioally to the medical profession, cannot be discuased In a newspaper. 3. Bad general management, and here, nnr ae espeoially, the publio generally, end even some professional men, need a word of oaution and advice. The yellow fever patient should be put to bed after taking a warm foot-bath, not a scald tog mustard bath, and covered with one sheet and one btaket or quilt. The room should be well ventilated, without letting a direct our rent of air fall upon the patient, and he should be allowed to drink freqoently, but moderate ly. of cool or cold water. Now, instead of this simple and seneible me thod, based upon sound phyeiological and by. gieoio prinoiples, what do we often see Tue attendants are all in a perfect panio of haste to get the patient into a profoseeweet as soon as possible. He is scalded in bis bath, covered almost to suffoaootion with blankets and quilte, orammed with hot drinks, and denied a drop of oold water, whilst the corridors and doors are shat, and the atmosphere of the room made noeearable and unhealthy. I was called to a man lately who had been wrapped or rolled over in blankets until he looked like a roll of oarpeting. The room was as hot as a close kitohen in esummer. He had been dosed with hot teas, denied water and air, suffocated, held down by the force of four women for twelve or fourteen boors. He was furiosnely delirious, and died in two hourn afterwards with congestion of the brain. This horrible oase of bad management, with the kindest intentioeson the part of the friends, is only an exaggerated picture of what ooeors in every eick room, where the siek man is de nied God's greatest bleioage-air, light and water. The fact is yellow fever Oe stand more fresh air and cold water than any other disease. A great deal of the mortality has seen aosoed by overheating and overeweating in the frst stage. It maset have been espeoial. ly fatal to young children. Another point of bad management is the ef fort t) keep up a perspiration daring the wconed stage of the diasee, which is a stage of great debility and sometimes of atter prostra tios. It any bad symptoms occur, nrses. doo tre and all seem to thlok that if the patient can only be made to perspire, all will be right sometimes the same violent measures used at frst are resorted t aget aond with almost in variably fati result, so that a fne perspira tion one day, sa black vomit and death the dtsa . a a- oest zds a Ue k u s f at effeot. It reminds one of the newsboy cry of "Confederate victory," whloh nearly always meunt Confederate defeat Yellow fever patien, in my opinion, are very often ndr-fd. They are dealed abso l y everythg fo two or three days and by thattime, wth purging, sweating ad starvation, they slok nloto a state of frihtful nervousness and debility. The dietreaing symptoms which then arien are coneldered still fartber indioations for extreme abetla ense, and the blood-making apparatus is left perfectly idle at a time the blood most needs itt reonperative supplies. I have allowed a mood cup of tea with plenty of milk in tt, thre tames a day, to my patients, with a craker or piece of toast added, if they desired It, during the febrile stage. As the fever eubsides an the eeoond etage approohebs, live chieken or beef tea regulaly every two ouars all day one or two tableepoonsrfl at a doe. At nig give milk punch mide with brandy, in tha eame doses. Id champagne, a teaspoonfal or two every bour, is very aceptable and use fnl to some cases. More food, gentlemen, and less medicine. Meany yellow fever patients are over.ruued. This may seem strange but it is true. Incessant and intelligent vigilanoe is required of therel low fever nurse, but if the nuns considers it his or her prlnoipal duty to keep the patient under cover at all basarde-tbe poor peutent in the esond stage continnally watebed, and "tooked in," and scolded and hectored is made more and more nervous and wakefl, sad if starved and phystoked at the same time, is sure to die. A stok man may be as meus wor rted by the overdone attentions of narses and friends a Jefferson Davis was by the setiel eternally gesing at him from the window. The yellow fever sick room is bannted by many old and absurd traditions and sepsest tione. It is the business of the medieal pro fession to dissipate this darkness and letin the light of solsbce. Let us always ooslt naeture, and be sore that the sensations and lastinets of our patients are frequently better guides than our own theories of the disease. We sometimes yield too complacently to prejdiess and unfounded opinions. Beformesr most be ready to sonfront error, mtlrepresentation and abuse. Let us feel sure we are right, and then, like Gen. Jackson. asume the responsibility. Wa. H. HoLcoMen, M. D. BUTLER AND FELLOW FEVER. N. O. IDmcort. Botler, in his proclamation on his retire meet from his proconsulahip of thie State, among other equally false and absurd ben e8te of his beneficent reign, asserted that he had demonstrated that the pestilence I (referring to the yellow fever) can be kept from the borders of the State and eity. This preposterous aseertion has reenty been revived in many Northern Journals. It is repeated by some ignorant and parti san residents of our city who, when asked as to the method employed to effect this result, refer to the measures directed by Butter for cleaning and sweeping the streets, opening ditches and drains; that by an utterly lawless exaction of a mil lion of dollars from the capitalists and merobhant of the city and the expenditure of the same on thousands of laborers, to the great enrichment of his pete to whom be gave the contracts, he made the city so clean a to exclude the pestilence. To demonstrate this assertion it would be necessary to assume and prove that the epidemic originated in the uncleanly con dition, and the lack of such drainage and Instration as Butler claims to have origi nated, and to justify bis assertion that the city was never Po thoroughly cleaned and drained as under his adminlstratioo, and that its former visitatious occurred when it was in such condition of uncleanliness I and incomplete drainage. These premises . are notorionsly falee and in conflict with I past experience. . Firfsly-It is denied that the scavenger ing and draining done under Butler was as thorough and effective as in previous years when the yellow fever appeared and pre- I vailed with great violence, as in 185l3-54-58. Secenady-The health statistics of the two years previous to that in which Butler held sway in this city, to-wit, in 1860 61, t exhibited a better sanitary condition than those of 1862. Thirdly-That the year 1862 was a por tion of the period of three and not unfre quently of five and six years' intermission of the epidemical visitation. The present epidemic comes after an intermission of eleven years; that of 1853 was preceded by six years of entire exemption; so of that f of 18:1. Fourthly-The epidemic of 1824, which e was a very destructive one, and which i occurred during a very rigorous quarano tine was followed by five years of ezemp tion, when, too, the quarantine had bees abolished. During these years the oity, or that portion abshove Canal street, was one huge quagmire. Dr. McFarland, who was then a prominent physician of thecity, thus de scribes its coudition at that time : Daring the eventful year of 1825 the year in I which Lsf'ette visited the Uoitsd Etteý, N here were wen not twenty days is which it dd aot rain iolently. Th "egiasl l " wam s disturbed to snob an extent that caveras opened In the prtinopi strel of tihe ~S District. I front fo the Camp Stree° uo d o an ltipeseble goll of med opeed, early the whole lenth of Compi e some place our and e- ee deep I es seen horses prib in the etreet oppoto e In yett Square, from maigs so deep tht Sot could not be extrioated. Wheo La a splendid ohariot drown by foes ea bonse, prooeeded to make a visit to the lte William Brand, on Magazine, ner Po yds, , the time he arrived at the pmresent site of Sb Arcade (now St. James Rotel), hi oes sad carriage besame ouglphed .to noh n m t that be was with ngo. dlfejelt extrloated, ae performed the remander of hi Journey on the flat guenwales which then formed theal ride wales of the city, for there was not at tat time a psh oflav stone a pattledel slated modol f m Oarnal sreot to the e Churob. As the orner of Commoaa ea Tohoupitoolas streeto there exinted a sl so deep ad dangreous that the eltY tb tie deemed it noesry to plant peat. s oeet a eanc ael mound it HidrL of horses perisbd In the stre , euntil at all attempts at treportation by vehlss hore power wore abandoned; plank were along the sides of the street, sad asttea tobasoo wore onaveed to the whareebosem a res by human labor at 61 per bhale ad Booh was the condition of Now Orleans he the fall and winter of 1825, the very year bS. quarantine was abollahed. And then the doctor concludes, as a de molition of both the quarantine and drals log and clean street theories, with a chal lenage of denial of the asseraion that wlT an extended intercourse with the whole tropical region and yellow fever sone, these did not occur a case of yellow fever is New Orleans and for sin years afsrrward The doctor might have added otb* -.. fleatrationsof hisbl aeestiom that this - was entirely independent of or diaonnae ad from and in no manner affeted by th . condition of the streets and of tlie----rilt ago of the city. He could have pointed Ia the facts, strikingly developed by Me present indiestions of this mysterious m al ady, which show that the epidemic bas limited ts sphere of reeistance and destre tion to those quarters of the city which aw as well paved, as cleanly and free from all * the imagined sources of terrene and male ratl infection and procreation as thosed a any other city in the world. And in these parts of the city whioh are filthlest sad tO woret drained, in the hovels sad shantisa along our draining canale and on teb borders and even within the swampe, the disease is a rare visitant. Where do you And the-hecatombe of the victims of this disease If not in Magazine, Camp, Care. delet, Euterpe, Jackson and other of our best built up and paved streets. He might, too, have Inteneed the re markable year of 1848 when three-fonrths of the present area of the city was over- ' flowed by the Sauve crevas, sad emehrgg from that condition in mid-summer, asnd the whole overflowed surface was covered with a deep deposit of debris, and all drainage stopped, not asingle ease of yellow fever occurred in that whole year. Baut why multiply proofs on one of the questions relating to the source of this disease, upon whiho there exists a enoer approach to unanimity than any other, to wit : that its introduction and spread art entirely independent of any such conbdl ions as defective drainage, bad scaveog erig and the provalence of filth sad us cleanliness. These conditions may prodase remittent and malarial fevers, and of these the statistics of Butler's army will exhibit a large prevalence. From yellow fever it may be admitted that the city was comparatively though rot completely e empt in 18&2, but not more so than is many previous years when Bitler and his army were not here, and that seek exemption occurred in years when the elty was in its worst condition in respect to drainage, pavement and cleanliness; ead tbet its severest visitations have ocegolred when the drainage and ecavengerlag wae far more thorough and complete thea thas which Butler boasts of having eN eet1 the application of the large stm of whiJc he robbed our citisens. The pretension, therefore, set up by blm and his followers of demonstrating the method by which pestilence could be kept from our borders is as false as any other utterance of this great American Maa chansen, charlatan and demagogue.
