the existence of yellow fever at Grenada

telegrams received by citizens this morning
all bear testimony to the place having been
struck by a fearful malady of tto'me charac
ter that is battling the medical talent. Thou
sands of refugees from New Orleans tied to
Grenada, some of whom have been stricken
down, and the natural supposition is that it
is yellow fever of some new form caused by
climatic difference. The news conies this
morning that within a radiusof a few hun
dred feet lifty or more citizens of Grenada
have been suddenly seized of the malady
and the physicians arc unable to cope with
it. The mayor of Grenada telegraphed the
chief of police of Memphis this morning to
send such disinfectants as are used in Mem
phis. The chief immediately sent per ex
press a ((tiantity of carljolic acid and cop
peras. A telegram was also received by the
board of health requesting that a skilled
physician be sent immediately to diagnose
the disease, in response to which Dr. Drown,
tho secretary of the Memphis board of
health, has just left for Grenada. Dispatch

to aid the health authorities in preventing
the spread of the disease from one point to

A LOST COLONY.
ROM ANTIC STORY OK THREE CENTURIES AUO.
The discovery of a mound in North Caro
lina with a number of web -preserved corpses
of unknown nationality has revived a hope
of Sir Walter Raleigh that some trace
might yet be found of the famous Roanoke
colony. The remains and contents of the
mound are undergoing careful examination,
ami it if is possible to decide that they are
tho Roanoke colony lost found no doubt
it will bo done. Tho human mind dis
likes im unsolvHble mystery, especially one
three centuries old. h was in LIST that
the famous lost colony, tho subject of so
much search, speculation and romance,
landed ut Roanoke und formed a
friendship with Manteo, who was mailt) a
Christian, a feudal baron, as tho lord of
Roanoke, the first gentleman in America.
It was that colony that gave birth to Vir
ginia Dare, the first Isirn of English par
ents on United States soil a female, by the
way, who would have entitled woman to
some rights of priority if she had not lusen
unfortunately lost, without perpetuating
herself in jsisterity. It was three years, on
account bf war, Spanish Armada and homer
troubles, before a ship .with supplies
and the governor of the col
ony, Virginia Dare's grandfather, re
turned to Roanoke. All that remained of
the colony, or Manteo and tho friendly Iu
tlians, to tell of its fate was the inscription,
"Croatan" on the bark of a tree. No seart li
was madt! then. Afterwards Kaleigh sent
live times to seek his colonists, but no signs
or trace of them ever appeared. Tint Iti
dians at a later day claimed to have adopt
ed the colonists, aud their physical eharuc
teristics give some color to the theory of
adoption and amalgamation. The lost
colony has been the theme of many a story
and a great deal of discussion, which the
curious delver in the old and half-forgotten
will tim I attractive.

The true story of the aff.iir, as related by
