NEW ORLEANS, September 2.-Au of?

the Board of Health, states that there is
not a case of yellow fe.vor in New Or?
Tho Picayune, ou tho sanitary condi?
tion of the streets, says a Providential
interposition, perhaps, has kept sickness
from oar doors. Tho health of the city
has been prosorved in the face of a most
utter disregard of bauitary pr?cautions.
The canals are stagnant with impurity,
and vegetation, groan and rank, covers
tbeir "urfaoe, aud decay and festor be?
neath the hot rays of the sun. Pools of
fetid water, the receptuoles of dead ani?
mals and the sweepings of the levee, ure
scattered over tho batture property, reek?
ing with pestilential disease and filling
tho air with sickening odors. In many
localities oitizons are compelled to close
their doors and windows and endure a
want of ventilation and the excessive
heat of the summer nights, that the noi?
some smells from the streets may be ex?
Branches of the city, ns well as of the
State government, seem characterized
by imbecility, corruption, fraud or vio?
The grand jury, reporting the condi?
tion of tho Boys' House of Refuge, state
that the treatment of the inmates by
Henry, Superintendent, und Schwind,
assistant, deserve to he stigmatized as
brutal and ruffianly in tbe extreme, and
the sooner a jail wall is placed between
society and Messrs. Henry and Swiod,
tho better it will he for society.
Judge Abell, of the First District
Court, calla the attention uf the grand
jury to the notion of the State Treasurer,
Dubuolet, in refining to pay the orjgi
nal creditors of the State, compelling
them to sell tbeir claim? to bis friends.
Abel says: "The State Treasury, onoe
the pride of tho State and the ? nanci si
agent of her creditors, has been literally
turned over to tax gatherers, brokers,
shavers and bangers on. I have presided
long in this court, and have some idea of
the depredation and plunder of burglars,
thieves, ?co., and am satisfied that the
officials of the State have, in two years,
plundered the State of more than all the
thieves, etc, for tho last quarter of a
contury. Fraud, speculation, extortion,
and hluok-moiling, are resorted to in a
most unscrupulous manner. Tho mil?
lions raised by the two per eent. tax and
the vast amount of licenses will be ab?
sorbed-at least ono-half of it being
consumed by corrupt officials and mer?
ciless brokers, and those official econo?
mists who manage oat of a salary of less
than $10,000 to save $250,000." He re?
gards the laws inadequate, with the pre?
sent jury system, to oheok or punish
these officials, and advises tho wiso men
of the State to counsel together for its
redemption, and in conclusion says:
"Tho darkest pago in tho history of tho
State is now being made up in dorkuoss,
which, I repeat, when deciphered, will
show present hitnkruptoy and perhaps
jj ?j ?
future repudiation. The great orimin da
who are destroying tho future of this
Slate may, for the present, bo too strong
for tho imperfect Jaws upon the subject.
Too corrupt to fear a jury, over naif of
whom CHU neither read nor write, but
they may yet meet the frowns and indig?
nation of an injured peoplo, and be
f >roed to enjoy their ill-gotten gains be?
yond their sight."

I learn that tho New York Herald, of

yellow fever in Havannah. Tho state?
ment is wholly Without foundation.
There is not now, nor hus there been
auy yellow fever iu Savannah tho pre?

of any kind and healthier thuu in auy
previous year. A retraction of tho state?
ment of the Herald, so fur as Havannah

Tho London Lancet, replying to at?

aud ou her brief resideuce in Loudon,
muk?s tho statement that the Queen is
not physically capable of bearing the
effects ol crowded or over-heated rooms,
or of prolonged residence in Loudon.
Tho Lancet suys that the effort of enter?
taining in the evening produces upon
tho Queen great and immediate discom?
fort, followed by sleeplessness or dis?
turbed rest aud severe headache, and
that the Queon rarely visits Buckingham
Palace, her London resideuce, without
suffering iu a similar manner. Tho
Lancet reminds tho public that the
Queen is a Judy, nearly fifty-three years
old, and does not possess tho remarka?
ble physical vigor and nervo power BIIO
exhibited twenty years ago.
