MdPHAIL SANITAEY CONDITION (To the Editor Peak Sill Express.) ? . Sir,— I notice by your issue of the 6th inst., a person 'signing himself ' Havoc,' has been pleased to impute that two cases of typhoid fever existed at Tomingley.

No Sir, there no typhoid cases here, and I can truth fully say none have existed since my arrival) — Yours etc.j J. W. LEES, Tomingley.
