SPREAD OF FEVER
Fever and dysentery contineu to make fearful ravages among all classes. The last accounts from Sligo, Belfast, Moy and Charlemont, in the county of Armagh, speak f the rapid spread of the contagion in those localities, and the great want of a properly organized system of medical charities, which, if judiciously carried out, might have been the means of saving many of those who have fallen victims to the prevailing diseases.
The number of deaths in the Cork workhouse for the last week is stated to have been 104.
