Great cities will rise along the Golf of Mexico, with docks filled with ahips from all the ports of the earth, and these will sail away through the waters of the great Southern basin, with argos- ies richer, by far, than Venice and Genoa, in their proudest mo- ments, sent oat from their throng- ed and busy quays.

The total mortality daring that time amouats to fire interments—three children and tro adults, and none of these resulted from fever. ^ s The germ of the fever has no food in our city. Its sanitary con- dition, if not as satisfactory as it might be. is far ahead of most Southern cities. We kbow of no danger, except perhaps from the City Hospital. This, we think, should at once be inspected by a committee of citizens—not care- lessly looked'into,- and then re- ported upon.
