Lancashire. Lancaster.—Additions are called for here, and it is intended to build blocks for nurses, for attendants, for working patients, and an isolation hospital. With regard to the latter the Commissioners in their Report express a hope that it will be of no large size, as the object is the immediate isolation of those first attacked, and not to deal with an epidemic. The admissions tell the same tale of hopelessness in a great proportion. The general paralytics only account for about 6 per cent., and intemperance for about 12 per cent. Dr. Cassidy does not approve of large transfers of patients from one asylum to another, as they upset a place for a time, and give no solid advantage. Three patients were discharged, their orders having lapsed. He justly stigmatises the arrangements under which this occurred as silly and childish.
