The Edinburgh Board of Health having ma turely considered, wlmt steps should lie taken for checking tho Epidemic Cholera, if it should ap pear in this city, are of opinion that .the proper tilde has now arrived for mnking public the fol lowing directions for the guidance of the inhabit ants. I. The ’L-ard arc satisfied, that tliedisensc may arise spontaneously from hidden causes; and that it may also become contagious in circumstances not yet ascertained. But they arc fully warrant ed in declaring, that, when it does hccomo conta gious Ihe risk of its spreading in that maimer is very much diminished if duo attention lie paid to cleanliness and sobriety. And they therefore in- treM the inhabitants of Edinburgh, in tho event of die disease appearing here, mil to he misled by exaggerated notions of its contagious nature,— the inevitable tendency of which would be to leave the sick helpless, and without that attendance from friends and others, which is more pressing- ly required m this disease than in any other. II. Experience has show ii, that the most essen tial precaution for escaping the disease is sobrie ty— that jutoxication during the prevalence of tho epidemic is almost sure to ho followed by nn at tack—and that those addicted to drinkiug are the most subject to take cholera, aud the most likely to sink under it. In liko manner, strict attention to personal cleanliness—to cleanliness and vcntil- latiou of dwelling houses—to warm clothing—to regularity of hours for sloep—to keeping as much as possible within doors at night—and to taking food heforegoingoutin the morning—may he ro lled on as important means of security. III. The Board are providing, thntshould the dis ease appear, several hospitals shall Ira opened o- •ver the city;—also that stations shall bo establish ed, where, as well ns at the hospitals, medicines and heating apparatus may be procured at all hours of the day and night; and likewise, that if necessary, all night watchmen shall lie supplied with medicines for the immediate use of any who need them. By these means it will lie in tho pow er of every ouc to procure instant aid. Notice of the situations of hospitals and stations for medicines will be given the instant tho disease mnv appear. IV. But to prevent the possibility of delay espe cially nt the nend of night, when the disease is ve ry apt to begin, the Board recnuiincud families to provido the following articles: 1. Mixture—Take sulphuric ether nnd aromat ic spirits of hartshorn, of each half an oiiuce, compound tincture of ciuimiuou, oue ouce: mix and cork up carefully. 2. Laudanum—An ounce to Jjo kept in readi ness. 3. Pills—Take opium twenty-fourgrains, cam phor one drachm, spirits of wine and conserve of roses enough to make a mass of proper consis tence. Divide into twenty-four pills. 4. Clysters—Take of Laudanum nn ounce, tincture of assnfmtidn two ounce*: mix for keep ing. Before using, mix three tcaspoonfiils with a wine glassful of thin starch; and retain it, when iujeeted, liv pressure below with a warm cloth, as long as possible. 5. Mustard Poultices—Have always at hand four ounces of powdered mustard. A fourth part of this, spread over porridge poultices, will be suf ficient for one patient. 6. Hot-air Bath—The Board hare approved of a hot-air hath of a simple construction, which maybe seen at tho Blind Asylum, nnd made hy any carpenter, price about ten shillings. Every family who <• •• afford it ought to havo one. V. No ti-.-.e should lie lost in sending for medi cal aid. But when tho disease commences sud denly in a violent form, it is dangerous to loso c- ven the time which must pass before such aid can be had. This form is at once known by sudden weakness, a contracted ghastly countenance, blueness of tho lips, and general coldness, nc- companyingor proceeding vomiting, purging and cramps. In such cases, the friends will, without delay, give n table spoonful of the Mixtures, No. 1. with fit) drops of laudanum, in half a wine glassful! of cold water. Follow tills with a table spoonful occasionally of warm spirits and water, or strong ly spiced wine. Repeal two spoonfuls of the Mixture, with 30 drops of landamtm, every half hour if the first dose fail toreliove.—If die mix ture ho vomited, then give two Pills, No. 3, and repeat oue every half hour if tho first two fail to relieve or he vomited. But after tho vomiting and cramps cease, the Mixture or Piils must not be repeated without medical advice.—Tho Clys ter, No. 4, should he resorted to also from the first, nnd repeated once if not retained.—[N. B. The doses nf the Mixture, Laudanum, Pills nnd Clyster must not he exceeded. For children of fourteen half tho doses mentioned, nnd for chil dren of seven one-fourtli is sufficient.]—The Hot air Bath—nr, if it is not at hand, dry neat over the whole body in any shape, such a* hy hot blankets and hot bricks, sand, salt orbottlos of hot water, together with constant rubbing of the whole body, should likewiso ho resorted to from the first.— The Mustard Poultices should, as soon ns possi ble, he applied over the belly and on ihe soles and calves, nnd kept nn till the pullout complains of the smarting. By the time these measure* have been put in force, opportunity will havo been given for procu ring medical advice; which is indispensable for the treatment afterward*. The Board think it necessary to Apprise the public, that where this disersc H.4Y prevailed, bloodletting, W hen resort ed to witliiu the first, second or third hour from tho eonimmiceniimt of tho attack, lias been very generally found useful along with the other reme dies. notwithstanding the appearance of sudden wcakucti and excessive sinking already mention ed. VI. By following three rules, and taking prompt advantage of the provisions made at the station- points, the Board are convinced that in many ea se* it will he checked nf the oe'sot. Jlna, fit the same time, they strongly exhort the Inhoring class es to convey their sick friends with nil speed to the hospitals, rather than try to core them at home, where they can seldom have the proper means at command; The hospitals will, it 11 hop ed, ho so numerous, ’hat one shall lie near every man’s habitation: nnd carriages, to serve at the snmo time as dry-heat hatha, may ho found al ways ready at tho hospitals and station*, for the instant removal of putleift* nt all hours nf the day and night. The Board feel assured, that by quickly’ availing themielve* of these provisions, working people Will get tlieir sick friends hronght sooner and far more effectually under treatment than in nay nthor wav: that they must uot forget, that every minute’* delay it highly dangerous. VII. The moment the disease is suspected to have appeared, information must bo given to William G. Cunningham, Esq. Clerk to the Board, at the city Chambers. .* *id should it es tablish itself in the town, medical men nre ex- prrled tu scad to the same quarter, every morn ing before halt' past nine, a report of each m..v case, death or recovery, specifying the name, age, employment, date of seizure", nnd date of thee- vent. The Board anxiously look for punctuality in this respect from every medical person. Hperimcii* of the labels are here annexed, for tho information of medical prrsoris mul others in tile cuuutry wliojnay he applied tutor the article* rccouiuTtbdcd by the Board, No. 1. CHOLERA MIXTURE. A table spoonful with 00 drops*of laudanum, in half a wine glassful of eold water. If this fail to relieve, repent two spoonfuls, with thirty drop* bf laudanum overj half hour. Half these doses of mixture add laudanum, foe children of fourteen. One-fourth for chUdrob of ijvon. No. 3. CHOLERA PILLS. ( _ To be used if the mixture No. 1 be vomited.—* Two pills nt first, nnd then one every half hour; if the first fail tu relieve. Half these doses for children of 14; one-fourth for children of 7. Do uot exceed the doses prescribed; nnd stop when the vomiting mid cramps cease, unless you bar* medical advice. No. 4. CHOLERA CLYSTERS. Inject three tea spoonfuls in a wine glassful of of thin warm gruel; aud retain as long as possible by pressure below with a warm cloth. If uot retained, repoat immediately, but otherwise uoti Half the dose for children of 14; oue fourth for children of 7. No. 5. MUSTARD FOR POULTICES. A fourth part is enough for one person. Dust it thickly over porridge poultices, of which apply a large ouo on the belly, and other* bu the sole* nnd calves. Remove whou the patient complains much of the smarting; Extract from the popular instructions at to the Cholera Morhus. Observe the strictest cleanliness both in person and dwellings. Avoid all chances of being chilled, and keop iho body warm, particularly the stomach, bowels and feet. Avoid placing the feet upon the cold floor. Workmen obliged to work io cold or damp pla ces, would do well to Wear wooden shots or dog*, Abstain from sleeping with tho windows open, Return home nt an early hour, iu order to avoid the cold nnd damp of the night nip. Avoid at much as possible excessive fatigue, Whatever may he the weather ortha season do not go too lightly clad. Sobriety cannot he too strongly recommended; consequently avoid all excesses of eating and drinking, for it has been observed that drunkard* and debauchees have been most exposed to the at tacks* of tho cholera. Let your food ba principally meat and meat soups; eat as little as possible of chareuterie and salt meats, and "ahstaiu entirely from heavy pas try. Abstain from undressed food of every descrip-* tion. All eold drinks taken when a person is heated; nro at all times dangerous. Tho water used a* a beverage ought to be clonr. Filtered water is better than any other. Instead ofdrinking it pure it would ho better to mix it with two teaspoonsfitl of brandy nr ahsinthe to a pint. YVator lightly mixed with wiuo is equally good. Tile excessive use of strong liquors it very per nicious, nnd taking unmixrd hrnudy when fasting is equally so. i’ersont wlto have contracted the habit of doing so, should at least, first cat a piece of bread. The snmo objections apply to drinking white wine fasting. All boor and cider of bad quality ought to be avoided. Every person who feels himself suddenly affect ed by dull pains in tho limbs, heaviness or giddi ness of tho head, a fooling of oppression, nneasi- itcss of the chest, heartburn, chnlie, should imme diately apply to a physician, or the next Bureatf ile Sccmtrs. FersniMthus affected should immediately go to bed, ami take, quite hot, an infusion of pepper mint nud flowocs of the lime tree, and heat him self l>y every possible means. Prepared chloric solutions being universally re commended as a useful precaution against infec tion of any kind, it may be desirable to give the) following receipt for mnking them.
