Thea genflsMSn all slated that beoaUM of <hi'smbllpox soare it seemed at preMSi:^ one long Snndnr In their townti-fpid that very great oohMm WM felt throughout their communities on aooonnt^of the epidemic. Acting-Mayor. Bartel, of Broadway, stated'JhS Town Council of his place had'hold a meeting that morning and that they were wriously contemplating! posting guards about tne town tft'prevent the entrance of any ono who approached from any of the infected Iw^itiM. He desired advice in regard to the bMt course to pursue. Mayor Buhl, of Timberrille, represented tJiiat perwns daily come into his town from Meohaniosville, where the dlMMO exists, after having exposed themselvM to smallpox and that the dani^ to his people wm in consequence oOS'eat tliat it oonld no longer bo tolerated if any means could* ,fa(tl. fOisiid to prevent it. He stated they daily,warn people to keep out of town, but that they come in neverthelea, and the authorities feel pcwerlcM to prevent this sort of thing. If they plaoe those under arrest who come into the corporation after having been in contact with tlie diseaM they simply have an elephant on their hands, for they have- iio plaoe to lock them-up. They don't want to place them in the town lookup and are at a standstU for a method of dispMlnig of them. Timberviile is like Broadway, it favors establishing a strict quarantine against Meohaniosville and the territory in Shenandoah in which the disease exists. Mr. Buhlstated that while the pablio generally are arouwd in regard to the situation the"danger larks in tlte reoklsssnsM of those who refuse to reoogolM the fact that the prevailing diseaM is smallpox. The public school at Mechaniosville has been closed and the mayors of Timber-villa and Broadway thought it wm, perhopi. best for their schools to saspsndi Timberviile had already prohibited ' all church services Dr, JonM. of the Board of Health, stated that the greatest dlfibmlty to be over oome in niMting the situation is the faot lliat beoause the disease prevails in a very mild form many people de-ollna 0^ifloept the foot tliat it is smallpiKt, imd they are, therefore, reollMinBd bard, to control, Timber- viile and Broadway have tlin rigitt to quarantine if they ohoose, bnt ho thought it would nmoant to bnt little, for people can slip into town and out again In splto of guards if tliny are Inollncd to do so. In liis opinion tho proper way to meet tho sitnation is to place a oompetont guard at ovory house in which smallpox exists, and a allow none to go from or come to tlio house. In addition to that* all tlioM) who complain of any of the symptoms of the diseaso should bo promptly reported to tho anthoritios, and plat^od nnder gnard. Ho thonght that with a local physician tn charge and thomi precautious adopted, togotlior with general vaccination, there slionld be no tronblo in couflning tlio diiieaso to a very fow.and in a short time wiping it out. Ho boliovod tho schoolH in nearby towns could go on m nonat, provided of conrHO, the pupils wore vaooinated. Ho reported tlint only ouo now case had dovolo()�d wltliln tho past few days, thereby refuting tho many rnniors to tho efToot that tho epidemic was spreading rapidly. Mr. Minuiok statod that many people demanded that a guard bo plnocd aboat Meohaniosville to prevont anyone from ontoriug or coming out of that village. This Dr. Jones regard-e#M prnctically nseloss. It was IiIh opinion smallpox oaaes conld bo snc-oessfully guarded, bnt that a village could not bo piokotod so that people could not steal in or oat, and that of thoM who have the disease nro properly excluded from contact with tlie healthy that that is all that is noccs-Mry. ' The Board adjoarned after instraot-ing Mr. Minnick that he should employ at the county's expemw sufficient trustworthy watchmen to guard all JjnfMted houMS and contract with a to take charge of all oxist-and such as may develope vicinity in the near future, i further instructed to have ajl vaooinated at the county's ex-are unable to pay for tho Fl^i|My� who is one of ""''""''ikjslolans.vlntho 'jliiiiitof ibable he win be en'gsged 1to~gTvo bis entire time to the matter. It'WM-'stated during the meeting lart evening tliat Dr. Vaugh had vaooinated 70 persons Saturday and that Dr. Fahmey had Vaccinated an almost equal number.. That the instructions of the Board of Health will be carried out explicitly there can be but little doubt, particularly since tliere oian bo no donbt after the supervisors' meeting yesterday that they will back np that body in all necoHary steps, that it may take. Meohanicsville is now, therefore, practically in the hands of the Board of Health, and, whether smallpox exists there or not, the Board will use its authority. For thoM who place tlieir judgement against that of mediqal ex-iwrts by declaring tlto disease not to be^roallpox we wish t8 emphasize the fact that the Board of Health is at present supremo and the rcguUk-tions they establish had best be observed. The State law on the sab-jeot says tho Oonnty Board of Health shall have control of the prevention and eradication of contagions and infections diseases, the removal and quarantine of saspeots; may provide for compulsory vaooiuation, tho prevention, restriction and care of smallpox and other contagious or lufoc-tions disease, and shall, with tiie consent of the Board of Supervisors of the county fix the compensations for the officers or agents employed in discharging such duties, and shall see to the abatement of nuisances. Tlicy shall likewise have power to adopt and enforce such reasonable rules and regalations as they may doom necessary to attain these ends. Severe penalties are prescribed as a punishment for those who willfully ignor the authority of the Board of Health. Notice to the Public.

Persons who have Books, Newspapers, etc., Containing Information Requested to Oontribnto. To tl\o People of tho aoath: Mnving dnterminod to attempt the history of the Hccoiwtruntlon In tho Boutli, I duHlro to npptMkl inoHt cnrn-ONtly for tho aid ntui co-oporation of all poraons having aconrani Itnowlodgo of any facts tliat wontd shod light npon that period, or who can tell nio 'wlioro or how snoli knowledge can bo obtained. Many jxirsonH possess books, pam-phlots, nowspaiiers, or letters giving contemporary acconut of ovnnts from the tlmo of Llonoln's reconatructlou experiinonta down to tho withdrawal of Fodiiral troopH from tho South by llayos. Sncli hlHtorlcal matorial, though comparativoly usolofts in many C08C8 to its owners, ^md lying upon dnsty shelves or garret floors, would be of inoHtiniablo valOe to theliia-torloal investigation. Much of it, however, now in danger of being lost or destroyed, would be preserved to posterity, if deposited in tho absolutely flro-proof library of the University of Virginia. Lack of means anfortunatoly prevents the University, em well as myself, from purchasing much of tho matorial,although I should bo glad to know tho prico of newspaper flies, or anything else with which tho owners are willing to part except for money. Bat I appeal, earnestly to tho patriotism of our' people, either to give books, pam-:i*i�tp. .POMSr*|��*�� old Iflttors, otc.j.: to the library orifie "Uiirvo'rsfty of Virginia, or at any rate to lend them to me personally for a time. Many persons who actually lived through the days of Rocoutruction, have knowledge of interesting and important incidents that occnrrod under their own eyes. These incidents, if anrooordod, slioald be recorded now; and I strongly urge every ono who wishes the history of tho South to bo based upon facts, rather than hearsay, to give me m many snoh facts as possible. Opinions concerning the sigufflcance of facts will also be welcome; bat those wtio have no time for writing dis-sensation can none tho less aid the cause of truth by making concise statements of concrete foots. Such btate^ents are desired from m�n of all political parties, und from natives of all sections of tho country; from Unionists as well as Socesaionists, and from those who approve as well as those who disapprove of the Rccoustruotiou Act of Oongress. It is impoBsiblo to enumerate all tho kinds of facts desired; but it may bo stated as a general guide to cor-respondonts, that any information will be appreciated that will throw light, for example, upon the economic condition of tho South in 1805; upon tho attitude of different social classes t6ward each other; upon tho extent to which antebellum jiartisan political feulijjgs revived; upon tho feeling of Southornors toward the North and C'onttuiied on toiirtli lui^tu \ The Yoong People, i lluw is it with tlio ynuntr people of your household? Are they saving money? iiuvo they learned to up-preeiate tho value of a dollar? Would ,vou like a plain Hiiggeetion? If no, here it is: Hend tho young folks to our bank with tho flrst dollar that comes Into their hands. The next dollar should be treated In like manner, and so on.
