BIRTHS AND DEATHS IN CARDIFF. Another Increase in the Mortality. The return of the Registrar-General for the week ending Saturday last (3rd J anuary) shows that in twenty-eight of the largest towns that in twenty-eight of the largest towns in England and Wales, each containing 70,000 persons or more, and of which Cardiff is one, there were registered 6,887 births and 4,195 deaths. The deaths were equal to an annual ate of 25'0. The rates of mortality in the several towns, arranged in order from thelowest, were as foliov/s Huddersfield 20.0 Plymouth 20.0 Portsmouth 21'2 Derby 21*4 Bristol 21'8 Halifax 21-8 Sunderland 22-0 Bolton 22-0 Hull 22-2 Sheffield 22'4 Birmingham 22-8 Bradford 22-9 Leeds. 23-9 Leicester 24-8 I London 21-9 Brighton 24'9 Nottingham 25'2 Manchester 264 I Blackburn 26'4 Birkenhead 26.4 Wolverhampton 26"6 Liverpool 28 1 Salford 2§'8 Newcastle on- Tyne 29 3 Prsston 32 5 Norwich 32 9 Tardiff 34*6 Prsston 32'5 Norwich 32 9 Tardiff 34*6 To the principal zymotic diseases 375 deaths were referred in the towns, equal to a rate of 2'2, the towns with the highest being: Cardiff 11'2, and Newcastle-on-Tyne 4-1 and those with the lowest Portsmouth 0-4, and Brighton 0'5. The highest, death-rate per 1.000 from scarlet fever were, Halifax 1-4, and Newcastle-on-Tyne 1'4 from measles,Cardiff 8'9, and Leicester 2'8. In the borough of Cardiff there were registered last week 106 births, as compared with 57 and 82 in the two preceding. That was the largest weekly number in the past 53 weeks, whilst the smallest m that time was 53, or just half. The 106 were equal to an annual rate of 59'1 per 1,000 of the population, estimated to have been in the middle of last year 93,468. There was again another increase in the mortahty of the borough, for the deaths amounted to 62, and in the three previous weeks the numbers were 4,652, and 58. These 62 deaths comprised 29 males and 33 females, and corresponded to a rate of 34'6. That is a very extraordinary high death- rate, and it is but seldom exceeded. It- was as much as 9'6 above that of the 28 great towns, aud our borough occupied in the last week the unen- viable position of having the greatest death- rate among them. This is to some extent due to the fact that it suffered so very severely from the principal zymotics. These were fatal in 20 cases, and included 16 of measles, and one each of diphtheria, whooping cough, fever, and diarrhoea. These 20 yielded a rate of 11'2, which was the highest zymotic rate. Measles in the I' three previous weeks were credited with 4, 10, and 4, and during its present outbreak there have already been 97 victims to it. Of the 62 deaths, 20 of them were those of infants under one year, and five referred to adults who had attained 60 years and upwards. There were three deaths due to violence, five were registered on coroner', certificates after inquests, and five persons died in the public institutions of CsrdifF.
