Health Suggestions No. 1. "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty !" So it is the price of health. Spanish bullets may kill some in war; disease will kill more at home. Are you anxious for loved ones who have gone or may go to war ? Then be more careful for those interested to you at home, and see that your premises are kept in a healthy condition. Pig-pens and privies should be looked after carefully and thor oughly, and regularly disinfectec with lime or other disinfectant. Un derdrains leading from wells o pumps to barrels hidden .in the ground should be abolished, as they furnish a fertile source for typhoic fever and kindred diseases. "On of sight, out of mind" is an old ad age very applicable to this case Surface drainage is by far the best We can then see the exact condition of things and .apply the remedy This is not intended as a note o alarm, but of warning.

Tho Secretary oC War has author- ted that n i g h t navigation in the Baltimore harbor bo resumed. This elieE has been urgently sought for omo time, by the Queen Anne's line nd the .33. C. A. Company, the Vheeler line and many merchants nd b u s i n e s s m e n . It was pointed ut, by the petitioners, that the lined channel need not bo used at 11 by any of the bay steamers. ?ho petitioners also noted t h a t "the istaucofrom Baltimore to the capes f tho Chesapeake is ISO miles, and lie approach to Baltimore is by a redged channel, eighteen t o t w e n t y - liles long, and 300 to 400 feet wide, us that a hostile ship vould have to run by steam many ours at least, after passing tho apeb, before she could get to Ba'ti- iore, and thou would only arrive t the mouth of the narrow dredged liaunel. With the Capes bping horoughly watched and guarded, s wo understand is a fact, the en- ranoe of such a ship into the bay vould bo known man j hours before he could possibly reach the entrance o the channel, twenty miles from lie city and ten or twelve miles be- ow the forts. We are, therefore, in inland poit, differently situated lorn any other port to which the general order of the department is ipplicabte. The business of this port is in m a n y respects different rom (others. Baltimore is on tho ipper part ot tho bay, winch divides he State of Maryland into two mrls. The counties bordering on h e . bay are the most fertile and roductivc in the State of Maryland n which a huge a m o u n t oE perish- vblo f r e i g h t is raised, which is usual- y shipped to Baltimore and from :here distributed all over tho country. Quick dispatch is absolutely iccessary to the conduct of this msiness. Tho steamers receiving his freight during tho day along the bay shores must reach Baltimore long before daylight the next m o r n i n g , in order to enable the shift' to be forwarded quickly enough to reach its destination in market- iblo condition. This cannot be douo C nil boats are forbidden to conic in or leave the port except by day- ight. Tliis Week's Wnr News. This week has been one of activity in army circles.
