The greatest height of the thermometer was on the 10th ani 18th of July, when it rose to 790; the lowest 320, on the 27th of June. The prevailing winds have beca from the N.E., E., and S. E. On the 21st and this day, we had thunder, with heavy showers. The hygrometer, during this interval, has indicated considerable dryness in the atmosphere, The season allogether has been cool.

None of the diseases in the present Report, appear to have been influenced by the state of the weather. The district under iny immediate notice is very healthy. Measles, smallpox, and hooping cough, have appeared, but have not spread. The rheumatic affections, with one exception, were slight; and coughs and catarrhs have nearly di appeared.

The case of colic was interesting, from the signal success of the remedy employed. The patient, a young man, had worked among lead, was usually of a constipated habit, and had been affected with the complaint before. The symptoms were those of colica pictonum, or Devonshire colic, which is an improper term, because the disease is neither peculiar to Desonshire, nor confined to painters. In the present instance, the young man had been ill some days before I saw hin; had taken large quantities of aperient medicines without effect, and, at the time of my visit, was writhing with agony." His stomach retained noibing, and the case seemed ainiost hopeless. I chiefly relied upon blood-leteing, as inflam. mation of the bowels threatened. He fainted upon losing twelve ounces of blood, but soon recovered from the syncope. A blister was applied upon the abdomen ; enemata were administered; saline mixture, with small doses of opium, and pills of calomel, and cathartic extract, which before could not remain in the stomach, soon produced the desired effect; and the following day he appeared much recovered, at least free from any danger. But the day after, he was stized with an alarming attack of cholera. This probably might have been induced by the drastic purgatives he has taken when the bowels were under the influence of the lead, which, while it excites pain, and even inflammation, in the intestinal Canal, renders it very insensible to the action of cathartics. Before the torpor is induced, several attacks of pain are experienced; the lead, in the first instance, stimulates, had thea produses corpor and paralysis.
