New Ori.kans, August 33,—New
cases 123, deaths 40.
Granada, August 23.—General
W. J. Smith, vice-president of the
Howard Association of Memphis,
is stricken down with fever. The
negroes are demoralized and stores
are being robbed. Five deaths in
the past twenty-four hours, with a
few new cases, principally women
and children. Eighteen New Or-
leans nurses have arrived. The
secretary of war has ordered two
hundred tents here. Not over twen-
ty active men are in town. The
agony and suffering is beyond de-
New Orleans, August 22.—
Yellow fever has appeared at New
Iberia and elsewhere on the Teche,
inciting the usual alarm. In neither
Algiers nor Gretna, immediately op-
posite New Orleans, has there been
a single case reported.
Vicksburg, August 23.—The
deaths lrom yellow fever from noon
yesterday to 3 p. m. to-day aggregate
twenty. Total deaths to date, sixty-
nine. The disease is steadily on tht
increase. Fully fifty new cases to-
day. Among them Dr. D. W.

Physicians and nurses are coming
from Galveston, New Orleans,
Shreveport and Delhi. Drs. Bal-
four and Robins continue improv-

cases, with increased deaths. Among
the dead is ex-representative John

and Isaac Isaacs. The board of
health have declared the fever epi-
demic and ordered all who could do

transportation to refugees.
New York, Aug. 23.—Mayor

suoscriptions in aid of the southern
sufferers, William Schulz, of Brook-
lyn, a yellow fever patient, who was
removed to the quarantine hospital,
died last night. The chamber ol

twenty-five to collect contributions
for the yellow fever sufferers.

ant for our safety.

Secretary of state board of health.
Washington, D. C.
To Wirt Johnston, M. D.—It is
not deemed advisable to direct the
exclusion of any class of matter
from the mails because of the preva-
lence of yellow fever. This depart-
ment will not, however, attempt to
disregard any reasonable order of le-
gally constituted boards of health is-
sued to prevent the spread of the di-
sease, but on the contrary desire its
officers to co-operate in extending

Temperance in Europe.
The Rev. Dr. Prime, editor of the
New York Observer, has been
spending some months on the conti-
nent of Europe, and making special
inquiry into the drinking habits of
the people. In ten months, during
which he visited the chief cities of
France, Germany and Italy, where
the universal tipple is light wine or
beei, he saw just one person drunk.
In one city of 55.000 inhabitants,
there was but a single arrest for
drunkenness during forty days.
The Rev. Dr. reaches the conclu-
sion that drunkenness is the exeep*
tion in the wine-drinking countries
of southern Europe.

The Alleged Ravisher of Little
Rhoda Parsons met by her Fa-
ther in the Streets and Badly
Beaten—Mr. Parsons Arrested.
A good deal of excitement was
created nearly opposite the Lamar
House yesterday evening, occasined
by Bob Parsons, the father of the
little girl ravished some time since,
meeting Francis Fasco, the alleged
ravisher, who was turned loose on
Tnursday by the grand jury, they
not finding him guilty of the crime.
A fight ensued between the two
in which no weapons were brought
to use. They fought for some time,
but the Italian at last broke and ran
away, having his head so badly
gashed and beaten up that those who
saw him thought a weapon of some
sort had been used on him. His
face was covered with blood and
there was a large gash behind his
left ear, though those who witnessed
the fight said it was simply a fistic
encounter. Parsons ran off and hid
for a while, but soon afterwaads
came and gave himself up to the of-
ficers, giving bond for his appear-
Origin of Yellow Fever in Grenada-
One Mrs. Field was the first per-
son to die of yellow fever in Grena-
da. Afterward it was learned that
Mrs. Field had ordered a dress from
New Orleans, and it is believed that
the infection was introduced by
bringing this garment to the place.
This information it obtained from
refugees from Grenada at Louisville,
Ky.; by ?. Courier-Journs! reporter.
When Mrs. Field's death occured no
fear of yellow fever was entertained
by the physicians, who considered
the case one of bilious fever.
Next following this case a robust
young man named Robert L. Young,
died with the vomit; yet the physi-
cians still clung to the belief that the
disease was not yellow fever. Both
funerals were public. A large num-
ber of cases appeared suddenly on
Friday and Saturday, and on Sunday
the physicians, who had held their
faces against admitting the disease to
be yellow fever, yeided their ground,
and declared that the pestilence was
beyond doubt yellow fever of the
most violent type.— Galveston News.
Dr. Shaw, the celebrated traveler,
records the fact that in traveling by-
night, in the beginning of April,
through the valleys of Mt. Ephraim,
he was attended for more than an
hour, by an ignis fatuusy that dis-
played itself in a variety of extraor-
dinary appearances. It was some-
times globular, and sometimes point-
ed, like the flame of a caudle ; then
it spread itself so as to involve the
whole company within its pale, in-
offensive light; after which it con-
tracted and suddenly disappeared.
But, in less than a minute it would
again exert itself as at other times,
running along from one place to an-
other with great swiftness, like a
train of gunpowder set on fire; or
else it would expand itself over more
than two or three acres of the adja-
cent mountains, discovering every
shrub and tree that grew upon them.
The atmosphere, from the beginning
of the evening, had been remarkably
thick and hazy, and the dew, at it
fell on the bridlet, was unusally
clammy and unctuous.
In such weather, similar luminout
bodies are observed skipping about
the masts and yards of ships, and
called by the mariners corpusanse, a
corruption of cuerpo santo.
New Jersey Law.
They have peculiar ideas about
camp-meetings down in Southern
New Jersey. Three young men
were recently arrested on the charge
of disturbing the exercises of the
Primitive Camp Meeting at Pamra-
po. The complaintant, who was the
minister in charge, said that the
young men had interupted the ser-
vices with unseasonable shouting and
singing. Their counsel raised the
point that all camp meeting cxhort-
ers, being without visible means of
support, are vagrants in the eyes of
the law, and unentitled to protection.
The court held that the point was
well taken, and discharged the
Long Branch, August 23.—
Henry O'Neil, a well known tele-
grapher of the Continental Hotel,
from Philadelphia, was found dead
in the hotel last night, having acci-
dently fallen on a wash bowl in his
chamber. The bowl broke and cut
his throat, causing him to bleed to
death before assistance airived.
The crop prospects for the present
are just now unusually bright. We
hear of some fields of cotton in
Grayson county that it is said will
yield nearly one and a half bales
per acre. This is aboye the aver-
ge, but our farmer friends will be
fortunate if they gather all they pro-
duce this season. Corn will be sold
at fifteen to twenty-five cents per
bushel. Potatoes are excellent, and
we have had the finest fruit ard

AND WAS CURED.
Delaware, O, Feb., 16, 1877.
Mk. H. R. Stevens:—
Dear Sir,—I wish to give you this tes-
timony, that you mar know, and let oth-
ers know, what Vegitine has done for me.
About two years ago a small sore came
on my leg: it soon became a laige Ulcer,
so troublesome that I consulted the doctor
but I got no relief, growing worse from
day to day. I suffered terribly ; I could
not rest day or night; I was so reduced
my friends thought I would never recov-
er ; I consulted a doctor at Columbus. I
followed his advice: it did no good. I
can truly say I was discouraged. At this
time I was looking over my newspaper;
I 6aw your advertisement of Vegetine,
the "Great Blood Purifier" for cleansing
the blood from all impurities, curing hu-
mors, ulcers, &c. I said to my family. I
will tiy some of the Vegetine. Before I
had used the fcrst bottle I began to feel
better. I made up my mind I had got the
right medicine at last. I could now sleep
wcli mshin. I continued taking the Veg-
etine. I took thirteen bottles. My health
is good; the ulcer is gone, and I am able
to attend to my business. I paid about
four hundred dollars for medicine to the
doctors before I bought the Vegetine. I
have recommended Vegetine to others
with good success. I always keep a bot-
tle of it in the house now. It is a most
excellent medicine. Yery respectfully
yours. F. ANTHONL
Mr. Anthoni is one of the pioneers ef

He is a wealthy gentleman of the firm of

Germans. He is well known in Cincin-
nati. He is respected by all.
Impure Blood.—In morbid conditions
of the blood are many diseases; such.as.
salt-rheum, ring-worm, boils, carbuncles,,
sores, ulcers and pimples. In this condi-
tion of the blood try the Vegetine, and
cure these affections. As a blood purifier
it has no equal. Its effects are wonderful.

Mr. H. R. Stevens :—
Dear Sir,—I feel it my duty to say one
word in regard to the great benefit I, have
received from the use of one of the great-
est wonders of the world r it is your Veg-
etine . I have been one of the greatest
sufferers for the last eight yeans that ever
could be living. I do sincerely thank
God and your Vegetine for the relief I
have got. The Rheumatism has pained
me *" such an extent, that my feet broke
out in sotes. For the last three years I
have not been abte to walknow I can
Walk aid sleep, and do my work as well
as ever I did, and I must say I owe ft all
to your blood purifier, Vegetine.
Vegetine.—The great success of the

the blood is shown beyond a doubt by the
great numbers who have taken it, and re-
ceived immediate reKef, with soch re-
Is Better than Any
Henderson, Kv., Dec., 1877.
