Death of Eb. Westbrook.
Tuesday morning the news
reached this city that Eb West
brook, who lives on Flint river,
near Lee county, had died the
night before, nt 8 o'clock, of Lee
county yellow fever. His death
was very suddeu, as he had only
been ill a few days. Eb was a
bright young fellow ol about 20
years, and managed his father’s
plantation on tho river.
To Meet in Debate.
We are informed that Maj. J. N.
Hudson and Hon. W. 0. Murray
will bavo a joint debate at the
Opera House to-morrow (Thurs
day) night, when they will present
their claims to tbe people of Sum-
ter county. They will also speak
in Macon county before tbe elec
tion, but the time and place has
not been decided upon. Every
body is cordially invited to attend

limn the ponds themselves. Tho marsh
along the traot of those branches should !
be dried, ufl that als", in our judgment, is j
productivecf disease. Marshy bind iu front |
ol Milch oils dwelling, nful uot far from j
Mrs. Hare’s door, wo think objectionable, j
Then tho mill pond of Mr. B. C. Mitchell
from the dam to above the railroad at the j
old butcher pen, (just below Elbert .
Head’s pond), und on tbe north side all
the way up to where the street runs uu» j
der the railroad, above which point the j
water is stagnant, or nearly so, all day j
and all night. This pond and its sur- j
roundings wo deem very detrimental to j
the health of the neighborhood, from !
whom daily we get the complaint that j
“thoso ponds are killing u»," and “we j
will bo compelled to sell out and leave.” |
Next, but not least, is tho fish ponds of
Elbert Head, which,iu our judgment, aro
absolute nuisances and should he |
abated at once. Tho little pond at the j
old hath house, and tho one opposite, |
emits an itHnvia that is calculated to t
make all sick that comes iu contact with j
them. The largest poud we think is j
equally productive of sickness, as the
water is almost entirely stagnant—tho
water escape is very diminutive indeed.
As wo before stated, tho hacked water
from Mr. Mitchell's pond and just below
the large pond of Elbert Head’s, with
tho decayed and decaying vegetable mat
ter that is there, will make it fearfully
sickly. It is not onr province to suggest
to the City Council what is best to do with
these nuisances, but simply to say that
in our judgment they do exist, greatly to
the detriment of the health of the city.
We would respectfully say that a thor
ough system of drainage is the only rem
edy, and that that cun only be done by a
competent engineer, so that when these
cess pools are abated it will be lasting.
Now tho ponds of Dr. Black and Col.
Davenport per re are not so prolific of
disease ns the others, but their marsh
and mud surroundings render them very
obnoxious and unhealthy, much less so,
however, than the ponds ef Mitchell and
