special cases.
Two Houses in Grosvenor-street.—In the Quarterly Summary,
No. XXX., was mentioned the case of two contiguous
houses, each formerly infested with smells through neglect in
the construction of the drains, which had been in great
measure remedied. Each house contains a central watercloset
on the second floor, drained by a pipe running down
in the substance of the party-wall. Last year, the occupant
of No. x made fresh complaint of effluvia in his drawingroom,
which he believed to enter it at the place where the
water-closet pipe of No. y runs down imbedded in the wall.
