Apropos to the remarks of The Journal in its issues of April 13th and 20th, on the " Preferable Climate for Phthisis," brought out by the paper of Dr. Denison, it now extends its consideration of climate so as to include its modifying and typifying influences on diseases generally, and on some of the more prevalent diseases of given localities particularly.
