Memphis. Tenn., Aug. 15. Thirty-three
new case ot' fever and six deaths reported
by the board of health from nine o'clirk
last night to same hour to-night. All these
cases are in the district where the disease
made its appearance it few day ago. The
thorough undi'Munding between physicians,
committees of benevolent societies and ex
perienced nurses, it is believed, will pre
vent the rapid spread of the disease and
cause a comparatively light death rate.
Thousands of people have left the city, and
the board of health are contemplating the
removal of those, in the Infected district
who have no phteo to go. They wilt
be furnished tents a few miles from the
The fi ver seems to be abating slightly at
(trcnuda, probably because there are but
few people there imw to have it.
Memphis, Aug. 15. The following tele
gram was s'.nt this morning:
To Hon. W. N. McCrearv, Secretary of War. Wah-
IllL'tOII. D. C.
Death i making rapid strides through our
strcels. Towns have (iiarantined against
us. Can you not ordrr one thousand tents
into which to remove the poor!
Signed R. F. Pati ep.son,
Collector Internal Revenue.
R. A. Thompson. Postmaster.
Since the above wis sent Postmaster
Thompson sent another telegram asking for
rations with a view of supplying and get
ting all the poor people out of town. '
Thirty-three new cases of fever and six
deaths reported from D o'clock last night to
0 o'clock to-night. The Memphis and Oren
ada and Memphis and Little Rock railroads
have stopped running their trains. Nearly
all the town in all directions are quarantin
ed against us. Several of the largest I nisi,
ness houses in the city will close to-morrow
and remain closed until after the frost.
Gaston's and the Commercial hotel closed
to-day, The Howards have organized and
sent out twenty nurses, and the Odd Fel
lows have gone to work nndare doing much
g'xul. Considerable, excitement prevails.
Thousands have left the city, and every
train is loaded down. Nothing reliable
from Grenada to-night.
A KAVOHAIII.K UI'.SPONSK.
Washington, Aug. 15. The secretary
of war has mad.1 a favorable response to
tiie petition f'om Memphis fur a supply of
tellt. to shelter poor people in the country,
although, as he states, there is no law for
such proceeding other than the. law of hu
manity. The telegram of Postmaster
Thompson of Memphis gives great satisfac
tion. new oui.eans.
New Oiu.eans. August 15. New cases
of yellow fever reported to-day, !IS: deaths,
17. Of the deaths, seven were children un
der 0 year old; one was y, one was 14. and
another child whose age was not given.
The Tillies editorially says: "Some reinark
alile features that characterized the fever in
it incipieney continue to characterize it
now, in what may In' regarded a its ma
tured and developed form. Fully lit) per
cent of the death are of foreigners or tin
acclimated people, and fully 75 per cent,
of the remainder are of children. It is very
rarely that we notice the death of an adult
born here or who had lived here any length
of time and of whom it can be said that
he or tihe received even moderate atten
tion. Instances of this sort constitute ex
ception to a very marked general rule. In
deed, leaving out ctrangcrs and those per
nors whose habit of life render them es
pecially liable to malarial inlluences, the
sickncH seniH to be devoting it "If especi
ally to children, and the fact that as time
goes on thi feature becomes more conspic
uous justifies the theory that the fever may
be looked upon as having di'clnred itself.
It is triti) that a great many nativo adults
have been infected, but tho attack in nearly

LETTER FROM POSTMASTER FILLEY
TO THE WASHINGTON AUTHORI
TIES. HE DEFENDS THE ADMINISTRATION OK III
OFFICE A PROMINENT TUEASl'KY OFFICIAL
'ID HE REMOVED.
WAsnis.iTox, Aug. 15. The postmaster
general has received a private letter from
Postmaster Filley relative to the charges
against the management of hi office, and
more particularly the removal of a clerk,
which have recently been published. Mr.
Filley says that the clerk who was removed
was negligent in his official duties, and was
discharged for that reason only. He further
says that there have been no Hilitical con
ventions or caucuses to which lie could have
been ordered to do political work. Conver
sation with officials at the postotliee de
partment elicit the fact that Mr. Filley is
held in as high regard at the department as
a pRDspKcrivE ( Hanoi:.
It is understood that Kenneth Raynt-r.
solicitor of the treasury, w ill be retired at
once, and assistant solicitor Robinson ap
pointed in his place. Rayner is an old
man, being over si'veiity. but is vigorous
und a hard, faithful worker. Hut he has
written some opinions recently that have
shown him to be a dangerous man with his
pen. One of them which caused much
ridicule was to the elfeet that the notorious
female, Dr. Mary Walker, was entitled to
one year's pay as a clerk of the treasury
department on the ground that she had
been promised an appointment by a former
secretary of the treasury. Another of
much more serious character was in favor
of restoring to bank in the South gold
captured during the war, and still another
which would have taken million of dollars
out of the treasury had it not been reversed
by Secretary Sherman was to the effect that
confederate railroad were entitled to pay
ment for the transportation of troops and
supplies during the war. Secretary Sher
man could not stand any such opinion a
thes,., and promptly reversed them all, and
Rayner thinks his services have not been
appreciated. Hut the last and most absurd
thing Rayner has done was to write two
long and labored opinions within three
weeks ot each other taking different sides
of the same question.. This was on an ex
ceedingly important matter fixing tho re
sponibility of tho late Metropolis disaster
on the North Carolina coast. The first one
fix 'd the r"SKnsibility on tlei owners of
the vessjl, but before this was promulgated
NEW SEMES-NO. 91-
Rajner wrote another opinion, tiixing tho
rcspousumity on tne government inspectors
of steaml)oats aud acquitting the owners of
all blame. This let the owners collect their
insurance. This seems to have settled Ray
ner's case, nnd it is now stated on good au
thority that his removal will take place
w hen Secretary Sherman returns.
