Tho National Hotol Sickness.
Tho following letter from Dr. 0. T.
Jackson, taken in connection with tlio
mctlical testimony ct Washington, would
seem Boom to establish tho theory that tho
National Hotel sickness was not tho roault
1 nin surprised to bco paragraphs giing
tho rounds of tho newspapers, in which
tho pcculinr disorder which affeded ihc
inmates of the iNatioiml Hotel, at Wash
it gton, is attiibutcd to no alleged ndmK
turo of ursonic, or s iiuo other poison, uith
tuo lontl or water usctl in that hotel.
An intelligent medical committee made
due inquiry into the origin of the disease,
at tho lime it occurred, and (rare us tho
result of their investigations tho opinion
that it was caused by gaseous emanations
from tho common sowor, which had a free
opening into tho cellar of that hotel, while
tho gases were prevented from escaping
inio the avenues and streets by air-tight
stoppers or trap3. This opinion all the
facts in tho caso fully corroborate, aud it
will undoubtedly bo sustained by a legal
invesliga ion, which I uudcrstnnd is to take
placo at Washington.
It h very easy to provo that tho disorder
in question did not originate from any
poiscn contained in tho fo'id or water of
tho hotel j for ii has boon shown that per
sons who did not eat or drink in tho hotel
woro as severely affected as those who did
cat and drink there.
Ono suoh case camo under my spocial
and daily observation, during stay at
Washington, in tho month of March last.
It was thar of a legal gctlcman, who w.ts
employed in taking depositions on tho
nubjcct of iho National llotcl disease, who
spent but sis hours in tho tNational Hotel,
aud who had occasion tn csnmioo tho cel
lar aud dinins of the house, lie perceived
a very disagrcoablo odor in tho room in
which ho was wiring, and found it camo
from au old rogi-tor which opened in o the
cellar, flo went down into tho cellar, anil
found tho odor much stronger, and on
arriving at tho opening of tho drain, tho
blast of foul air was so strong as to extin
guish iho lamp ho held in his hand j and
tho smell that uroso fn m tho drain was
very offensive nnd almost intolerable.
this gontloman did not cat or drink
anything in that hotol, and yet ho was
attacked with tho same disordor as others
who had boon inmates of tho hotel, and
ho suffered moro than thrco weeks from it,
