Senator Miller introduced a bill hist week to
provide for the sanitary inspection in Egypt of
rags designed for shipment to the United States.
If the provisions of such a measure could be
fully earned out, tne danger or importing germs
of Asiatic cholera into this country would be
greatly reduced. Dr Parkes and other writers
mention facts going to show that cholera is oc
casionally carried from one place to another by
soiled clothes. Dr Pettcnkofer of Munich, cer
tainly a very high authority on the subject, for
cibly argues that cholera is transportable in
clothing, but not because the clothing comes
from a cholera patient, but because it comes
from a cholera locality.

the tariff on wool. It decided at least one point
in favor of tlie Morrison tariff bill namelv,
that it will be "considered" by the house. If
toe opponent of the bill intended to stifle it
without debate it was a capital blunder in them
to allow Mr Converse to bring up his wool re
