The sad duty is imposed upon us of announcing to our readers, says the Martinsburg Gazette, of the 25th inst, that this dreadful disease again made its appearance among us on Tuesday of last week. Why is it that our hitherto remarkably healthy town should be thus visited, no mortal can tell.
There may have been imprudence in diet— the change in the weather may have had an effect— but these things always exist. The fact is, the cause of this disease seems to be “past finding out”— great caution, however, should be exercised in diet— its first symptoms watched and carefully attended to.
We have every reason to hope that the disease has ceased its ravages, and that good health of our town will be speedily and permanently restored. There have been no new cases this week.
The following is a list of all who have died since its re-appearance on the 17th instant:
Tuesday, Oct. 17 — Andrew Hagerman’s child; Jane, a colored woman of P. C. Pendleton, at S. Alburtis’s. Wednesday, Oct. 18— Washington Kroesen; Mrs. Anna C. Hoge, consort of John B. Hoge, Esq.; Mrs. Eliza Baker, consort of Mr. Samuel Baker; and Mr. Charles Bowman. Thursday, Oct. 19— Wm Floyd. Friday, Oct. 20— Charles D. Stewart, aged about 76 years; Mr. Stetson’s child; Isaac Waters’ child, not cholera; Miss Rebecca Hutchinson; Maria Lyle, colored. Saturday, Oct. 21— John Snowdeal’s child. Sunday, Oct. 22— Mrs. Maria Cooper. Monday, Oct. 23— Mr. R. H. Fletcher’s child, not cholera; Mr. Henry Crim’s child, not cholera. Tuesday, Oct. 24— Miss Sallie Turner.
