GOOD-BYE TO TBE FEVER.
It is agreed on all sides that the yellow fever
in Charleston ls on its last legs. The coo), bracing
weather ls lining the germs of disease, no new
cases are heard of, and the whole city ls growing
cheerfully bright. Some leading physicians, have
advised their parents that they may safely come
back to Charleston, and, every day, a large num?
ber of refugees return thankfully to their homes.
During the last two days not even one death
from yellow fever has been reported.
lt will be noticed that the City Council have or?
dered a day of prayer and thanksgiving on ac?
count of the abatement of the fever, in this we
can all Join with hearty good-will. But Scott's
impudent proclama-ion will find few ob ervers
outside of the Ring, who seem to think it a pious
aa J patriotic duty to plunder the people.
Tbe First Frost.
Trfcrapid change in the weather on Frilay eve?
ning, fol owed by the brisk coll on thc following
day, has no doubt prepared o-r readers for the
annouLcement that the first fr st of the season
appeared in our city yesterday morning. Even
the moat incorrigib'e unbelievers on the subject
admitted, with blue noses, that a few d.grees
lower would brlcg the frost, but those In the up?
per part or the city were convinced by an actual
sight of the long wlshed-for visitor. On the sheds
?and in the yard of the south Carolina Railroad.
freight depot a good frost was visible at an early
bour Sunday morning, ard men from up the road
report lt th.cker and heavier ct a distance from
the city. Heavy frosts are repotted in
Chester and Columbia, and sever 1 "re.iable
witnesses,'' according to a Savannah journal,
vouch that their city was visited by
a frost on Friday night. These reports
are not unexpected, as any close observer of the
thermometer for the past three days will admit.
On Thursday night or rather Friday morning, the
minimum point to which the thermometer fell
was 63. Ou Saturday lt tonched 47, and on Sun?
day 46. The h'ghest point reached by the quick?
silver at Dr. Blackman's store on those daya
were (at 2 o'clock P. M) Friday 72, saturday
62, and Sunday 60 degrees. The difference be?
tween the temperature on Friday and saturday
averaged ten degrees, and this sudden fall shows
how quickly the cold ls coming when lt ls read.-.
As cold as it was on Saturday night ten o'clock,
the thermometer was three de. rees lower lau
night at the same hour, with every prospect if
reaching a much lower point this morning than
any lt has hitherto touched. A good frost ia in
store'for this morning. The people are pre?
pared, for the worst. Let lt come.

PEAR SIR-The failure of many Insurance com?
panies by the Chicago fire, after assurances had
been given that they were able to pay all de?
mands, and to pursue their business, has Justified
an apprehension In the public mind, and perhaps
In your own, which lt ls Important should ba al?
We, therefore, so far as thia Company ia con?
cerned, request you, at your earliest convenience,
to Investigate its affairs, and to ascertain its po?
tt lon and ability to fulfil existing obligations aad
all that may arise in the ordinary course of busi?
We wish, alBO, to call your attention to onr In?
crease of capital, already largely oversubscribed,
and desire to know when we can close the sub?
scription books and call tn the money, under your
construe: 1 :n or the statute.
Your prompt attention will be regarded as a
ravor. Very respectfully,
GEO. T. HOPE, President.

At the request or the Continental Insurance
Company, or the City of New York, I have taken
the earliest opportunity, since the adjournment
of the National Convention or Insurance Commis?
sioners, to invest gate the affairs or the Company,
and I find Its condition to be as follows :
Its assets, amounting to $2,847,307 64, are Judi?
ciously and rarely Invested.
I s capital of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars is
unimpaired, and lt ha* a surplus of net assets
larg~iy in excess of the amount required to rein*
sure its on*standing risks, after providing for all
other liabilities, Inducing Colcago lo-ses.
lu losses sustained at Chicago are in course of
rapid adjustment, and leave the Company with
abundant ability to afford Indemnity to ita cus?
tomers and to respond promptly to all customary
The subscriptions to lt i voluntary addlttoa of
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars to Its capital are
much greater than double the amount to which
the st ckbolders are entitled, and the subscrip?
tion books must yet remain open until the 20th
Inst, at which t.me the subscriptions may be
