A TALE OF TWO CITIES.
When the yellow pestilence made its ap
pearance in New Orleans and Memphis and
Grenada, and the terror-stricken inhabitants
led from their homes in haste to save their
lives, and the doors of Cincinnati were closed
against them by a rigid quarantine, Louis
ville, with a courage which must forever re
feet credit upon her heroic people, made
every refugee welcome, and, with a spirit of
self-sacrifice so noble as to win the applause
of all who have hearts to feel for the suffer
ing of others, invited them to remain within
her limits. Nor did her charity stop here.
A hospital was erected and placed in charge
of competent physicians, who, with a full
corps of nurses, continued, so long as there
was a single case of yellow fever brought to
the city, to receive and care for their South
ern guests. Relief societies were formed,
who visited the hospital daily, carrying deli
cacies to the sick, seeking by every means that
the most enlarged philanthropy could sug
gest to relieve the suffering of the strangers
that the terrible scourge had thrown upon her
bounty. Meanwhile subscriptions to the fund
for the relief of the sick in other cities and
towns throughout the South were made, and
the money contributed sent to the Howard
Association, to be used according to its judg
Other cities gave full credit to the humane
conduct of the authorities of Louisville, and
there was not a dissenting voice raised in the
city to protest against it. No cowardly fear
of an epidemic in Louisville prevented her
citizens from extending a friendly greeting to
those whom the calamity of an epidemic at
home had compelled to seek the hospitality of
a sister city. The warm tide of Southern
sympathy flows freely in the veins of Ken
tuckians, and they were thankful to stand at
the threshold of the epidemic and accompany
their sympathy with material aid to the
plsgue-stricken cities of the South. For this
action she claimed no reward, and asked for
no credit from people of the North or South.
She simply did her duty, and in doing so it
probably never occurred to one of her gener
ous citisens to ask what effect it would have
upon her Southers trade. The epmergency
came upon her suddenly, and with character
istic impulsiveness she grasped the oppor
tunity to render much-needed aid, and de
elared there should be no quarantine against
their Southern brethren who were flying for
It was reserved for the mercenary spirit of
the Cincinnati Enqgirer and Commercial to
turn the chivalric conduct of Louisville to
the advantage of Cincinnati by publishing to
the world a lie so flagrant as to arouse the in
dignation of a portion of her own press, and
wring frbm it a reluctant tribute to the heroic
conduct of Louisville. Dr. Minor, Health
Officer of Cincinnati, visited Louisville to in
quire into the truth of rumors which had
been spread either by emissaries of Cincin
nati or by one of half a dozen families who
had fled from their homes, and was taken
through every portion of the city in which
-the wildest exaggeration had located yellow
fever. The result of his visit was that he
found three persons who were sick of malig
nant malarial fever. Only this and nothing
more. An agent of the Associated Press
-amed Gordon, actuated by a devilish spirit
of perverseness, sent out a dispatch in which
he gave a graphic picture of the epidemic in
Louisville, founded entirely in his imagina
tion. Reporters for the Cincinnati Enquirer,
who only ask for a grain of truth to a whole
bushel of falsehood in the manufactare of a
sensation, interviewed Dr. Minor and a few
panic-stricken people, and obtaining the nee
essary quantity of information, gave under
startling headlines the most heartrending de
scription of the scourge which had visited
Louisville. It was nothing to those itemizers
that Dr. Minor could only report the exist
ence of a few cases of fever; the necessity of
robbing Louisville of any credit, which they
feared she had gained in the eyes of Southern
people, was too great to allow the opportunity
to slip, and in this way the news of an epi
demic at Louisville was given to the world,
creating no more surprise anywhere than in
Loauisville itself. A temporary excitement.
followed, which was at once silenced by Dr.
Bell, who declared that yellow fever as an
epidemic never had existed, and could not
this year exist, in Louieville. The event
proved the truth of his prediction. But
thirty-four deaths from yellow fever occurred
in Louisville during the entire existence of
the scourge in Southern cities, all of which
were imported cases. During this period
about one dozen deaths took place within a
radius of four hundred feet from an alley
which had been built between Tenth and
Eleventh streets, near the Nashville depot.
IR making excavations for it, several old
Pity vaults were uncovered, the effluvia
from was the cause of a malignant
malIa1 which would have proved

in Memphis or Ne eans.
The people living o adway, near the
depot, who were daily wit f the arrivals
of yellow fever patients from tl th, natu
rally referred the deaths which lace
near their residences to yellow fever, in
Dpinion they were in a few cases borne out
their family physicians, who advised them to
chaunge their place of residence for a short
*time. Acting upon this advice, Breadway,
betweem Tenth and Twelfth, was almost en
tirely deserted. A few families left the city
in a state bordering upon panie. As in all
similar ees, they magnified the danger from
which they led, and poured into the willing
ears of inneinnatl reporters a tale which
those eaterprisrig jornalists lost no time in
working up into a sensation of the most am
ple diaesions, the large eirculation of the
two mispaper, whleh vied with eoah other

the onlyde atm ioh.whlh d a lve equa
circulation with the statement would have
been through the identical journals that had
first given publicity to it. This these papers
persistently refused to do, although the Cin
cinnati Gazette promptly contradicted the
statement that yellow fever existed in Louis
ville as an epidemic.
In consideration of the fact that Cincinnati
had established a rigid quarantine against
persons suffering from yellow fever, and Lou
isville had not done so, but had met them
with open-handed hospitality, the conclusion
is inevitable that the attempt to locate an
epidemic in the latter city was actuated by a
mean spirit of business rivalry.
A temporary lull in business followed.
Southern merchants, on their way to Louis
ville to purchase goods, were deterred from
visiting the city, and were obliged, in many
cases against their will, to make purchases in
other cities, but the effect was transient. In
the latter part of October business revived,
and by the first of November the volume of
business transacted on Main street was larger
than it had been for five years before.
THE INEFFECTIVENESS OF QUARANTINES.
If any fact has been more fully demonstrated
than another during the period of the plague,
it is the ineffectiveness of inland quarantines.
Aside from the migratory habits of people in
general, and the determination of the average
American citizen to exercise his God-given I
right to go where he pleases, the tramp nuis- I
ance offers an insuperable barrier to the ef
fective organization of a quarantine in a city
surrounded by land. It is possible that a
single individual might establish a quarantine
against all the world, if he could exclude the
atmosphere and inflate his lungs through dis
During two months in which the Yellow
Fever Hospital was in operation in Louisville
seventy-six patients were admitted to it. Vis
itors were in daily attendagce-not only
physicians, but ministers of the Gospel and
other citizens. The ladies of the Flower
Mission visited it regularly every Thursday,
and yet not a single person who visited the
hospital contracted the disease. This would
appear to be proof positive that something
else besides contact with the disease is requis
ite to import it from one person to another.
Certain atmospheric conditions are favors
ble to the spread of the disease, and when
these phenomena exist quarantines against
people or goods from infected districts, even
if they could be enforced, are utterly inef
fective in preventing the disease. But the
quarantine can not be enforced. Notwith
standing the most rigid examination of pas
sengers arriving upon the railroad trains and
steamboats outside the limits of Cincinnati,
the pest-house in that city had more yellow
fever patients than the hospital at Louisville.
Numerous places in the Southern States
quarantined against the whole outside world,
and allowed no communication with it, but
the fever came upon them all the same, either
through the atmosphere or by being carried
in the systems of refugees, as in Cincinnati.
In the former places the disease spread, and
in the latter it did not. The Bell theory has
been fully vindicated by the result in many
places, both North and South, and has proved
the necessity of a thorough system of drain
age and disinfecting those districts in large
towns which are liable to produce disease.
Aside, then, from the unchristian and in
human character of quarantine, the result of
which is a constant cause of reproach against
those cities which instituted them, the use
lessness of attempting to bar out a pestilence
which defies all human barricades has been
proven to be so apparent that we doubt if it
is ever again attempted in the Mississippi
AT HOLLY SPRINGS.
[From the Courier-Journal.j
No MORE unwelcome news has been brought
to us during the entire course of the pesti

men with a faithfulneuss and heroisma unsur
paessed, and his death, occurring as it has in
the last days of the great calamity, when
there was yet hope that so valuab!e a life
might be spared, illustrates most impressively
the relentless character of the pestilence.
Indiscriminate havoc has marked its course
throughout, and the brave and generous peo
ple of Holly Springs have drunk their bitter
cup to its dregs. The tone of Col. Holland's
dispatches have indicated that he did not ex
pect to escape the fate of scores of his neigh
bore, but he never flinched before the de
stroyer. The following telegram is the last
one sent by him to this paper:
" HOLLY SPRINGs, Mss., Oct. 19.-To-day
there have been six new cases and one death.
Your correspondent happens to be among the
new cases, after having struggled with Yellow
Jack since the beginning of the epidemic.
He desires, through you and in the name of

our friends in every part of the Union, who
have so generously and nobly contributed to

JACK FRosT having begui work upon the
outside of the yellow fever districts, a speedy
and entire cessation of the epidemic will of
course shortly occur. Then will come the
dread summing up of losses, and the melan
choly greeting that will meet the refugees
homeward bound. While the wheels of busi
ness will again begib to move, and the latent
vigor of social and commercial life reassert
itself, still sadness will long reign over hearth
stones, and tears will long be shed for those
whose places " will know them no more for
ever." And hard upon Azraels flight will
come the doctors trooping up with their ex
periences and conclusions. A devoted band
of humanitarians they formed during the
reign of death, but it is to be feared their
notions will be as conflcting as their lotions
were, and but little of practical good in the
way of suggesting preventives will be crys
talized out of the mass of evidence to be sub
mitted, It is to be earnestly hoped, however,
that some will earn a position on the pinnacle
'' where Fame's proud temple stands afar," by
giving the world a decided and rational disg

and cure.-[Courier-Journal, Oct. 30.
