Intermittent fevers.

--A medical gentleman requests us to suggest to our officers and soldiers in camp who may be exposed to intermittent fevers, that one of the best prophylactics against the complaint is the daily use of horse-radish with their food. As a condiment it is very agreeable, and if it will have any effect as a prophylactic against camp fevers, it should certainly be daily used. We believe it is found in abundance about the markets in almost all the towns of the country. The people of the country will doubtless supply our soldiers with it if requested to.-- New Orleans Bulletin, Sept. 16.
