REPORT OF DISEASES. The autumn, though on the whole healthy, has been more sickly than for sonie years past. The diseases, however, have been mild. Dysenteries and diarrhæas, if not met, in their early stage, with antiphlogistic remedies, according to their severity, have proved extremely tedious, and, in a very few instances, fatal. The typhus fever, in its true form, has been chiefly confined to the poor Irish, and those who have associated with them. Fever, however, has been sporadic among all classes. In those whose mode of life has been more generous, the early symptoms have been severe, and not relieved without the lancet and other antiphlogistic remedies. If these have been omitted, the disease has proved fatal at an early period, or convalescence has proved extremely tedious. There has been less delirium than usually attends that form of fever, but the senses have been much impaired, and the conceptions greatly weakened.

A case of phthiriasis, or morbus pediculosus, has occurred in an elderly woman, the wife of a man in a decent employment. Though they sleep together, the husband has no difficulty in keeping bimself clean; but it is the constant employment of the wife to destroy the vermin, yet they multiply faster than all her endeavours can prevent, They are the common body-louse; so that it is at least probable this disease is nothing more than a peculiar aptitude in the skin and juices of the subject to prove a nidus and food for this insect.

We are much obliged to our correspondent for the favour concerning Nilrous Acid; but, under the present mode of conducting the Journal, we cannot admit histories of venereal sores, without a more minute description of their appearance. We must therefore wait for his further communication.

PROPHYLAX, and several others, will appear, if possible, in our next.Does our correspondent at Berwick wish his name to be added to his favour?

We feel professionally for our Bristol correspondent; but, as the cause is scarcely known, excepling in his own neighbourhood, we would advise him to print the affiduvit, either in the Bristol papers, or to circulate it among those who are likely to interest themselves in the question.
