Small-pox which, according to the report of the Commissioner of Health, came to us at the beginning of 1874, seems about to leave us at its close. The number and violence of the cases have very much diminished, and there seems a fair prospect that we will be rid of the pestilence in a very short time. We hope we are not premature in offering our congratulations to the community, but in any case there is much to be thankful for, in the progress that has already been made in a return of the usual state of health in the city. Only measles at present gives much trouble and concern. This is still on the increase, and though not ordinarily fatal, is yet, sufficiently dangerous to excite alarm. We have not learned the exact number of cases in Kingston, but at Stony Hill there are more than sixty.
