OVERCROWDING OF FOREIGN VESSELS. The half-yearly report of Dr. Coilingridge, medical officer for the Purr, of London, again serves to show the great variety of duties which fall upon him, and the importance of the sanitaiy work which is being carried out on the river, not only in protecting London from the importation of infectious disease, but in maintaining the health of that large popula- tion which depends on the river for its livelihood. ve 1 '00 Among the many points dealt with (says the hospital), there is one to which especial atten- tion may be drawn namely, the amount of overcrowding which is sometimes found in foreign vessels arriving in the port. The steamship Jyden. at Randers, arrived in London from Libau with 39 passengers, all of whom were berthed in the port alleyway, the dimensions of this space being 20ft. by 6ft. 9iri. The Danish steamer Magnus, from Libau, arrived with 176 foreign emigrants, 169 of whom were, carried in No. 3 'tween deck, in a space which allowed only 6'15 square feet per head. Men, women, and children were all berthed together, and it was found that one death and one birth had oc- curred among these people on the voyage, the dead body remaining until it could. be removed in London.
