there is really very little cause for fear that
the scourge will ravage any northern city.
The climate is greatly iu our favor, and still
more nrc the habits of th people. It is true
that New York and Philadelphia have both
once been swept by yellow fever, in years
long past; but they were then undrained,
filthy towns, with a weight of helpless misery
and want which wu lit material for any
plague to feed upon. Norfolk, at the
time of its most terriblo visitation,
was in a similar foul condition. The
cities of the north hnve made
great progress in the art of cleanliness
since those early days. The majority of
decent houses here and in Philadelphia are
drained and ventilated, if not by the best
method, still more effectually than they
were twenty or even ten years ago. The ma
jority, too, of citizens who can read have
learned the first principles of hygiene, and
are apt to apply at least some of them
promply in a time like the present. Iu
many southern towns and villages, however,
there litis been no such advance;
there is in them an all-alxiunding
luxury of filth, such as Northern
ers who do not travel can hardly
imagine. There is usually no pretence at any
underground drainage; tbe houses, set on
piles above the ground, are surrounded by
luxuriant roses and magnolias, with the
scent of which mingle odors of the aggre
gated abominations of generations, reeking
barn-ynrds, green stagnant pools festering
in the tropical sunshine; pigs, fleas, and
black beetles are the only scavengers.
There is too much in the habits of many
Southerners to render them an easy prey to
this espveial form of disease. Even delicate
children are fed on fried meats, corn
bread, and black coffee; and a sluggish,
inactive life promotes the undue access of
bile into the system. It is stated, we have
no means of knowing w ith what truth, that
the present epidemic originated in Grenada,
and was caitK'd by an attempt to stir up a
filthy sewer. The genus of the disease
were probably brought from elsewhere,
but such a condition of affairs as
we have described would account for the
wholesale slaughter which has ensued.
Scientific "men for many years have at
tributed the prevalence of this disease in
New Orleans to the peculiar mmle of dis
osing of the dead, as well as to the mala
rious swamp on which much of the city is
Afteh services, c.'llduct.'d by Rev. Mr.
George yesterday morxing, the remains of
the late .Mr. John Oberly were followed to
Beech Grove by relatives and a large
number of those who enjoyed his friend
s!iaT while living An earnest and impress
ive prayer was delivered at the grave by
Bev. Mr. George, aud the earth closed for
ever upon a good man. LKiking at the
matter with the lights before us, we think
there is hardly any doubt but Mr. 0., if he
had taken the precautions usual to persons
of his years, would be living to-day. He
was u man of superb physique, and during
all his long life of toil and exertion, he
neither shunned nor feared the elements.
He belonged to that rugged and sterling
type of manhood familiarly known as
"Pennsylvania Dutchmen," whose descend
ants can be found to-day iu every state ami
territory of our country. Inured to the
hard and nmli work of the farm from
childhood; rising with the sun and retiring
only after all the chores of the day had
leen perform 'd ; repeating this through
all seasons for years, the old gentleman
grew to manhixxl as near weather
proof us it is jxissible for human nature to
attain. In his later days he cherished u
pity bordering ujon contempt for the man
who would r.'sort to umbrellas or arctic
ho;'H as protection against the elements and
pronounced a effeminate and unworthy of
manhood the fashion tlu.t arrayed men in
heavy underwear and many coats. Indeed,
his feeling of the invincibility of his pow
ers of endurance undoubtedly hastened his
leath. Although seventy-one, his frame
was massive and his muscles sinewy and
strong. The machinery of life in him was
unimpaired. No vital organ was seriously
affected and with prudence and care he
promised to be a centenarian. He was u
Christian in the broad sense of that
word. He could see good in all creeds,
but became wedded to no particular one,
although in late years he often expressed an
admiration lor the faith of the ltoman
church. For the Uev. Mr. George, the
Presbyterian minister of this city, he had
a high personal regard, and iu his dying
hours asked that he bo summoned to his
b'dside. He was very fond of children,
and this love whs reciprocated by those
around him. They left nothing undone- to
make his later years comfortable ami
pleasant to lihn. He commanded many
kind hearts and ready and willing hands to
execute his slightest wishes. His wife, who
survives him, is in her scventy-t ighth year.

We should feel grateful to Cairo for the
int. rest she takes in the matter of prevent
ing the introduction of so virulent a dis
ease to her Uirders; and should the dire
calamity of its appearance there befall that
city, it will be our privilege as well as duty
to enforce a stiict qtiarantiuo against her.
Wahuinoto 1). C. Aug, 31 1878. If
Gen. Sherman has gonens the National
Republican thinks, to the Texas border, the
act probably "means business." It is to be
regretted that Conkling's Senate Committee
appointed specially to take charge of our
relations with Mexico at a time when, as
now, the Administration threatened war, did
not make at least u partial report before
Congress adjourned. The fact that war'with
a weak and demoralized people like the
Mexicans can have but one result is not an
argument for such a war. There is, prae
tically, no limit to our resources in men and
money. Of the latter Mexico has none what
ever. If war is declared wo shall add an
immense strip of valuable territory to our
present domain, assume several millions of
dollars of doubtful claims against Mexico,
add also to our debt the cost of the war,
and still have the same border troubles we
now have. If there is any honorable means
of avoiding the contest we should avoid it,
and Congress, if it assembles in time, should
take such action as will compel the Admin
istration to be cautious.
Various charges, which seem to have some
foundation, and which will certainly be in
vestigated, are made in connection with the
bill, passed at the last scasion of Congress,
by which the United States general govern
ment is made to guarantee the payment of
principal and interest of the District three-sixty-f.T;
bonds. A New York bank held
several millions of them and made an enor
mous amount by the use in value of the
Ikiu.Is consequent upon the act of Con
gress. It is charged that ready money
was paid to some members and
that others were guaranteed the profits on
certain amounts of the lionds. Two mem
bers of the senate committee on t ie Dis
trict of Columbia lioth Radicals are
mentioned as having prolitted in the last
mentioned way. On the part of the House
Committee the names of men of both parties
are mentioned. The subject is one of great
interest, as these Kinds have been largely
purchased iu the en.-t and north.
If we arc to believe that Kearney ever had
any commanding position among working-
men, we must admit that he seems to have
lost it. Whether his own coarseness and
1 ick of method have injured him, or, his
advocacy of Butler, will be a mterv for
a long time. Whether Kearney injured
Butler o r not. is another. That each in
jured the other is likely. Keairvy may in
sjm'.' things lie worse than Butler, and in
others Butler worse than Kearney. You

wiien her husband and the War were fight
ing. It is easy for most of us to refrain
from shedding tears when we see Kearney
lose Ids influence with the deluded laboring
man, or when it becomes plain that Butler
has lost all hopes f preferment.
The health officer says Washington will

"THE SIDE OF THE PEOPLE."
Johnson County Yeoman.
We know Oberly's speeches in Johnson
county will make hundreds of voters think
seriously as to how the finances of the
government has been run during the last
sixteen years. He gave the
figures and votes to prove his
assertions, and showed that the Democratic
party always voted on the right side the
side of the people and not in favor of the
capitalist and he did it in such a plain,
simple, unimpiissiaued manner, Unit every
man could comprehend it.
