I have the same databases in three cities which each database have three tables:

1- tbl_worker
and cities are:city1,city2,city3

city2 and city3 insert informations in their databases.

The city1 database should be updated every 1 hour from data inserted in city1 and city2 databases.

For example, the data inserted in tbl_kargah in city1 and city2 databases should be merged and inserted into tbl_kargah of city1 database every 1 hour.

Will using replication cover my requirement and which replication?

As I read in MSDN the publisher distribute data in subscribers, but I have different publishers and 1 subscriber.

Yes it is possible to have many publishers and only one subscriber. You can also have one publisher and many subscribers. So in your case you will be able to publish from City1 and City2 and subscribe only City1 on those publishers. You can use this link to have an overview of the replication engine and how to setup it. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms151198.aspx

Yes this can be done. You'll want to make sure you set the publication properties for the object correctly to ensure that you don't wipe the table if you reinit the subscriptions.
