The quantity of rain fallen in the month of July is 1 inch and 85-100ths,


The town has been free from any serious epidemic for a long while. The latter end of the month has, however, been visited with an autumnal diarrhea, wbich, in a few instances, has shown a tendency to dysentery, and, in one case, with such marks of inflammation as to require the lancet.

Three old subjects have gone through all the stages of febris lenta nervosa, with slight delirium and symptoms somewhat formi. dable, bad they been accompanied by others to encrease the alarm. Two had singultus for three days with very little intermission, and it continued after the delirium had ceased and the tongue had become clean. The third had apthæ so alarming as to prevent deglutition for several days, and to produce a fætor which seemed to indicate deeper mischief. They all recovered; but, in the last case, the fever was protracted to twenty-one days. The season has been less favourable to children, whether affected with the exanthemate dentition or hooping-cough.
