Ill the present emergency, when tho Asiatic cholera is adtancing, for the second time, toward llurope the tollowing fact, related in tho (liizrile ilm .winViKj-, seems to us worthy the attention of the medical faculty : Dr. I'riino Tarou', surgeon in the Ottoman armv ex-inspcc.lor of health in llulgaiia, Syiia, &c. was. in 18X7. tiiactising medicine at .Mar '"i seilles at the lime the cholera made its second j appearance in that city.

My sleep had been perfectly calm during six hours; when I awoke, I ( xperieuced great weakness m all my body. I had, lincon-ciously, perspired during the whole night. I recoveied my stieng'h gradually, and was perfectly restmed to my usual health. Dr. T.iron" terminates his'letter, by confessinjr tlrilheing unacquainted with the action which exetci.-es upon tho nervous centres, he did not ai-aibo his cine to that agent, hot to one of those capricious vvhitiis of iiatuie which it is, im - po--ible to explain.
