DESCENT ON THE AMAZONS.-On Tuesday

of colored girls assembled on King street, and,

Good Move and an Excellent Appoint,

The sluggish progress ol the yellow fever
that it has been our duty to chronicle lor seve?
ral days past, continues without perceptible
acceleration, there being but slight variation
from day to day In the number of cases,
under treatment. The exodus o? the unaccll
mated steadily goes on. The most striking
proof that can be given of the absurdity of the
alarm of some of our sister communities, may
be found in the official bill of mortality for the
past week, which we subjoin. It will be Been
that the total number of deaths from all causes
(including six by yellow fever) was but twenty
seven; while for the corresponding week of
last year the deaths were forty-seven ! These
figures, certainly, hardly argue the existence

In the absence of our model city Inspector
much confusion and inconvenience have been
occasioned by the uncertainty of who should
be called upon to discharge the duties which,
through his negligence, have of late become
so grave and onerous. In view of this state
of affairs, and o? the necessity of prompt ac?
tion for the purpose oi preparing the city to
resist, and ll possible prevent, the further
spread of the fever, Messrs. William Ravenel,
Henry Gourdin, George A. Treuholm, H. H.
DeLeon, L. D. DeSauBsure, and other promi?
nent gentlemen "o? the Board of Health and
Chamber o? Commerce, callad upon the Mayor
yesterday, and after Impressing upon him the
Importance of haying the sanitary regu?
lations of the city ?nt In competent hands,
requested him to appoint some person
who could see ibero properly carried out.
The Mayor, alter some conversation, sug- ]
geste d the nantf o? his volunteer assistant,
Major E. Willis, end upon the, assurance that
he would be accept-: .e to all, the. appointment
was made.-' Major Willis has accepted the ap?
pointment from the Mayor on the condition
that he shall have full control of all sanitary
matters. The appointment is unsought by
bim," his services are voluntary, arid he will re?
ceive no recompense bat the well-done .ot ids
fell?, citizens. The, Judgment and energy
he has exhibited in bis late successful effort to
clear the city of waler, show: him .to. tts the
right man in the right placer with'such an
executive officer, the citizens feel assured that
every meas ure which, care tad foresight may
dictate will be taken to place Charleston la
proper sanitary condition.

way.with the facilities lor transportation from
and to this port. The steamship Georgia, of
the iron line, (Messrs. Wagner, Huger A Co.,
and W. A. Courtenay, agents,) sailed yester?
day with the following large cargo: 357 bales
cotton, 1000 barrels rosin, 60 bales domestics,
100 barrels flour, 20 cedar logs, 30 bags and 24
Oerrels, dried, fruit, SO empty barrels and 60
packages sundries. ' '
This Georgia, will sail as usual from New
fork on the return trip. We have also seen
a. dispatch from the agents In New York
(Messrs. borgan & Co.) to the Charleston
agents, stating that the Sooth Carolina, of the
Iron Line, will sail from New York for Charles?
ton on Saturday next. The passengers by .the
South Carolina arrived safely In New York
without any long detention.
The steamers of the Adger line will also run
with their usual regularity, and shippers may
rest assured that there will be no delay in for?
warding goods to or from the North by the
Arrangements for the Sick.
The president of the Hebrew Benevolent
Society has made arrangements with the chief
of the health department, BO that all Israelites
who may be attacked by fever will se provided
with separate apartments in the City Hospital.
They will also be attended by proper nurses,
and by a visiting committee of the society.
The German Relief Movement.
Meetings were held last evening hy the Ger?
man Steam Fire Engine Company, the Germa?
nia and Bruderllcberbund, the German Artil?
lery, and other German societies, at which
committees were appointed to minister and to
relieve the sufferings of the sick, more partic?
ularly the Germans, in the various portions of
the city. The committee will probably meet
this alternoon, and take such steps as are
deemed advisable under the circumstances.
Bleep the Premises Clean.
The attention of the community is invited
to the third section of an ordinance "to pro?
vide ior keeping the Btreets and lots in the
City of Charleston clean," published In another
column. Every occupant and owner o? a lot
ls by it required to have the same, with all the
outbuildings, carefully swept and cleaned, and
the rubbish deposited before 7 oJclock In the
morning on the pavement, a short distance
from the sidewalk. They are also required to
sweep the sidewalks and keep the gutters clear
in iront of their houses. The time has come
when these ordinances, so long a dead letter,
are to be rigidly, enforced. Unless every man
does his share, the labor of the willing few
will be thrown away, and the authorities have
been instructed to see that the provisions of
the ordinance are strictly carried out by every

Activity la Ward 4.
The committee of Ward 4, yesterday, com?
menced their work of examining the prem?
ises ol residents In that portion of the city.
These examinations are as rigid as the situa?
tion demands, and will be continued dally. As
the the object is the good of all and no tax
gatherers or constables accompany the com?
mittee, the residents are requested to throw
no obstacle in the way, and the way to begin
this is to chain up the doge. These faithful
animals have not yet realized the importance
of the committee and their work, and one of
them yesterday came near iaetenlng upon the
leg of a prominent committee-man. Tie np

Action of Ward 8.
The gentlemen appointed by the board of
health to act as city volunteer assistants in
this ward, assembled last evening at the resi?
dence of Mr. W. P. Dowling, to arrange a plan
of action, the chairman, James H. Johnson,
presiding, E. L. Boche, secretary. The ward
was divided out among the committee as fol?
I First Division-J. B. Bhirer, T. A. John?
Second Division-A. L. Tobias, William
Third Division-Dr. Graman, John A. Bow
Fourth Division-M. Powers, L. Seal, Daniel
Fifth Division-F. W. Pieper, Dr. Dowling.
Sixth Division-Captain C. B. SIgwald, M.
Seventh Division-H. Hoffmann, H. Hasted,
Eighth Division-James H. Johnson, E. L.
R?solutions were then adopted similar to
those passed at the late meeting In Ward 4,
and the secretary was directed to forward a
copy of the same to the Mayor, and inform,
him o? the action of the meeting. The duties
of the committee are similar to those of the
committee in Ward 4. They will inspect their
varlouB sections, and take prompt action to
place the ward in the most cleanly condition
possible. Portions of this ward, like Spring
street, are sadly in need o? the committee, and
a sudden and notable change In Its aspe ct
may be relied upon.
The Fever Scare In Aagasta.
The Augusta Chronicle, of yesterday, says :
Under the authority granted them on Mon
day by the health committee and board of
health. Alderman Meyer, acting mayor, and |
Alderman Ford, chairman of the board, have
been consulting with Major Hull, agent ol the
South Carolina Railroad In this city, relative
to raliway communication between Augusta
and Charleston. On yesterday evening we
learned that an arrangement had almost been
concluded between the parties which will pre- j
vent any cars entering this city from Charles?
ton. It is proposed to have trains from this
city to meet all trains from Charleston at
Branchville, and at that place change all the
freight, passengers and baggage.

We learn that the authorities st George?
town have established a rigid system of quar?

In limbo for thirty days.
