Memphis, Tcnn., August 19, 1878.
Prior to the 8th inst. the chills and fever,
bilious, congestive and malarial fever pre
vailed throughout the city, and Indeed
throughout thu Mississippi and Arkansas
river bottom countries between hero and
Vicksburg. Thu tendency of these fevers
was toward the malignant point, nnd the
cases were diHieult to overcome, not yield
ing readily to medical treatment. The yel
low fever, malarial fever, or pernicious fe
ver hud iilrendy broke out in New Orleans,
nnd suspicious cases of sickness were dis
covered on board steamboat!) running from
New Orleans up the Mississippi to St. Louis
and other points north. About the 5th inst.,
a white man, sick, landed here from the
steamer John B. Maude, a boat belonging
to the Memplis and St. Louis Anchor Line
THE KIItT CASKS.
This man was conveyed to the city hos
pital nnd next morning was reported to the
board of health by the hospital physician,
Dr. J. B. Thornton, as a suspicious case
with symptoms of yellow fever. That day
he was removed to the quarantine yellow
fever hospital, which bad been established
at the foot of President's island, which is
four miles below the city, the hospital be
ing at the southern part of the island, ten
miles south of the city. In a day or two
the case was pronounced yellow fever by
Dr. Lawrence, the .otHcer in charge of the
quarantine hospital and grounds. Two or
three days thereafter a white man got off the
steamer Golden Crown, from New Orleans,
breaking thu blockade which had been estab
lished, nnd managed to enter the city. He
was taken sick ami was discovered by the
health officer, Dr. Erskine, ut bis boarding
house (Charleston house) near the Charles
ton railroad depot, near the center of the
city. This man was at once summoned to
the quarantine hospital, his bedding was
taken out nnd burned, and the room, build
ing and locality thoroughly disinfected
with carbolic acid. A strict quarantine
had then been established against persons
and goods coming "from New Orleans,
Vicksburg and the entire infected district
South. The lever had by this tinio broken
out at Grenada, Miss., 100 miles south of
this point at the junction of the old Missis
sippi Central (New Orleans, St. Lmiis and
Chicago railroad) with the Mississippi and
HOW GRENADA WAS ATTACKED.
At Grenada quit-' a number of people
from New Orleans were travcl-lxmnd, owing
to the quarantine established here. These
New Orleans people became sick utj Gre
nada, and soon that city, numbering about
SiOO Inhabitants, whites and blacks, be
came infected und the fever raged there at
once. The quarantine established at Mem
phis became inefcctual. People could slip
into town from the infected districts south
by way of the Mississippi and Tennesv.-e
Hailroad, by way of the New Orleans, St.
Louis and Chicago Hailroad, which form
a junction with the Charleston Hailroad at
Grand Junction, and again by wav of the
Louisville Hailroad, which forms ujunction
with the southern roads at Humholt und
Tlilon. From New Orleans lsmts pnsscn-
enu'ers got off ten and twenty miles above
this jsiint, and, employing lishcrmcn, ran
the blockade at night in skiffs, the fisher
men using mumVd oars and landing their
passengers in the southern portion of the
city. 1 he numerous uirt roails lending
from the city w ere impossible to guard, and
over them cople from the infected dis
tricts south came to Memphis. This at
once proved that quarantining an inland
city was somewhat of a humbug. The
only advantage that resulted was the feel
ing of security which the quarantine estab
lished in the minds of the citizens of our
EKKOltTS AT DISINFECTION.
On Monday morning, the 12th inst., Mrs.
B. Hlonda, keeper of an Italian snack and
eating house at No. 212 Front street, died
of yellow fever. The house and locality
were nt once taken in charge by Health
Officer Dr. Erskine, the dead woman was
interred within a few hours, the bedding
was burned, thu building, sidewalk.s alleys
nnd streets adjacent were drenched with
carbolic acid and a barricade was erected
around the bit ck so us to isolate the locali
ty tit) much ns Hssible. Mrs. lilonda's
snack house 's located on Front street, one
hundred yard from the upper steamboat
landing and in the center of tin; city, lbr
snack house was frequented by steamboat
men, roustabouts from the lauding, etc.
On the Tuesday following the fever broke
out on Alabama street, half a mile uortheas:
of this point and near the Itayou Gayoso.
TIIH INFECTED DISTItlt'T.
To understand the latter locality the fol
lowing brief description is necessary.
Memphis extends some two miles along the
Mississippi river, from the mouth of (old
Nenluba) Wolf river to Fort Piekerina,
and extends back cnstwardly one
mile, Wolf river, a sluggish stream,
forms the northern boundary l
the city. Itayou Gayoso runs through the
center of the city from soutll to north, con
necting with Wolf river some three hun
dred yards from iu mouth. Hayou Gayoso
and tributary bayousextend to and through
South Memphis. During heavy rains it
rises ten and fifteen feet and pours a rush
ing ll'Mid into Wolf river, but in dry weath
er, like the present, It has no current; it is
full of ilimy, stinking pools of water from
its source to its mouth. It is the receptacle
of all the water, filth, surface drainage,
sinks, etc., of the city, from the water sheds
in either sides of its banks. It is the nat
ural drain of the city, a disease breeding
source upon all occasions. It must be re
membered that Memphis has no deep
drainage or sewcrago system, the natural
surface drainage into Bayou Gayoso only ex
isting. INFESTED UY HEFUOKES.
But to return tj the appearance of the
fever on Alabama street, which, as stated,
was near the Bayou Guyoso, not many
squares frnn the mouth. Prof. Decker, or
ganist at St. Mary's Catholic church, re
sided in one-half of a double residence, the
other half being occupied by Mr. P. M.
Winters and family. Prof. Decker died,
and within 24 hours 11 dozen cases of fever
appeared in that locality. It was discover
ed that two relatives of Mr. Winters had
come up tho river on the infected steamer
Golden Crown, and had succeeded in run
ning the blockade. They remained at Mr.
Winters' residence several days until dis
covered and compelled , to leave the city;
but before they left tho vicinity became
infected, Prof. Decker being the first case
ami some members of Mr. Winters' imme
diate family next. , On Wednesday nnd
Thursday, the 14th and 15th inst. (hist
week) cases of fever were (Kseov
cred all along Alabama street, for many
squares on Poplar street, near the same
bayou; on Washington, the next street
south of Poplar; in Exchange, north of
Poplar, nnd in Jefferson street, still further
south. This locality ut once became what
is now known as the "infected district,"
ami is located in the First, Second, Third
and Eighth wards of the city. There wers
17 cases reported on Wednesday, 'M on
Thursday 20 in Friday, 22 on Saturday, 10
on Sunday last and six up to noon ti'day,
Monday. These were the cases reported by
physicians to the board of heu.th daiy, but
there was muny cases unreported, tic doe-
tors differing as to the disease or ciuse of j
death. Even now physicians call tie dis
ease by different names -bilious feier, ma
lignant bilious, congestive fever, perni
cious fever, malariul fever, yellow fever,
malarial yellow fever, etc. The ony fact
or tiling they all agree uioiis tlat the
disease is of the same type its that w hich
desolated Memphis in 187:1.
The number of cases that have a'pcar.'d
since its commencement up tonoci; to-dy
is correctly estimated at from on? iiundrcd
to one hundred and fifty. The number of
deaths reported by the unde-'takirs and
officially announced by the Brd of Health
for the week ending at six .Vchx k Satur
day, August 17, is 74, or vhites, M, col
ored, 20: Chinese, 1: fro 11 hospital, 1;
stilllsim, 1. Number of tenths from yel
low fever, 20; congestive (ever, 10; malarial
fever, 9. These reports may be ndied upon
as almost strictly accurate. Your corres
pondent has had amp! opportunities to
know this. No secrecy is obs.-rved on the
subject of yellow fever Other by the Board
of Health or the city press. In fact, it
h is been the object to ,'ive ns much pub
licity as possible to :he facts, and not 1
ing else. All rumors or statements, heard
or made, not in accordance with the above I
report, are unreliable and untrue.
FI.YINO FIUM THE CITY.
The population of Memphis, according to
the last census, 1878, was ns follows:
Whites, :!2,:K(!; colored, l.),02; total, 4,
008. Since Monday, the 12th; inst., from
twelve to fifteen thousand whit people have I
left the city, thereby rcduciitg our white
population to some sixteen thousand in
round numbers. The stamfde nnd panic
was frightful, a thing unheird of in our
city. People left by rail, river and dirt
roads, fleeing terror stricken from not what
was present but from some imaginary ci
lamity in the future. It w:s the dread f
the plague or scourge of 187:) that frighten
ed them out of their wits they beiievi ig
that another like epidemic was rapidly ap
proaching. It was well, biwever, that tle'V
left even as they did, because it has taken
away food for the demon of disease to prey
upon. They are still leaving,
but with more decorum, nnd not
in such hot haste. The prophets of
evil were abroad predicting disease nnd
death, und saying to all, "Stand not on the
order of your going, but go ut once,"' and
the prophets were utnong the first to fly.
The board of health on Friday last raised
the quarantine which had been established
against New Orleans, Vicksburg nnd all
other points smith, ami now trade and travel
to Memphis are unrestricted, but travel to
Memphis is us limited us unrestricted.
Nearly all the interior towns along the
lines of railway und rivers in Mississippi,
Tennessee and Arkansas have established
quarantine against Memphis, prohibiting
travel and trade. The authorities of many
of these towns quarantine drugs, ami nt one
town Hollandgin ami embolic ucid shipped
from Memphis were, ordered to be disinfect
ed before being permitted to enter the
town. So much for temporary iiunuitv

Memphis has fully organized for the
tampnign against yellow fever. The board
of health Is indefatigable in its efforts to
disinfect every locality w hen? thu fever ap
pears, Tho Howard association keep 1111
office open and supplies nurses und medi
cine to all who apply or w herever n case of
fever can be found by the members of tho
committees. The city has been divided off
in districts and these nre regularly put rolled
; and watched. The citizens have organized
a relief committee and nro issuing out raj
tion daily to the poor. The bravo men are
standing their ground "holding the fort,"
determined to do or din in the breach.
There is n.) fright or fear among such men.
They attend to their business as usual nnd
nre as cheerful ns ever; nnd they are in
numbers sufficient to attend to everything
necessary. They nre the veterans of the
epidemic of 187:). All hot 0: to them.
THU FEVEIt AIIATINll.
The physicians almost unanimously
agree in stating that the fever is yielding
to treatment and is abating somewhat.
These results are attributable to the fine
dry weather during the day, pleasant nights
and the absence of so many people not only
from the infected districts but from all
other portions of the city. The colored
people do not take the disease, are not
alarmed and but few of them have left the
city. Dr. Paul H. Otey, one of our leading
physicians, conceived thu idea of establish
ing camps some miles out in the country fcr
the poor people of the infected district.
The suggestion was at once adopted, nnd
the secretary of war immediately responded
to a telegram by ordering one thousand
tents shipped to Memphis from Evansville,
Ind. The tents hare arrived and are being
pitched on high ground, five miles south of
the city, on the line of the Mississippi and
Tennessee railroad. They nre pitched in
military style and the camp is under com
mand of ("apt. Cameron, with his company,
the Bluff City Grays, ami Ciipt. Mat. Glass'
colored company the McClelean guards, hug
been stationed there to keep order nnd
take charge of the police duty. Dr. Otey,
with a corps of physicians, has general su
pervision of the camps. The well people of
the infected district and who ure unable to
move away, are sent down to this camp
where they are furnished with tents und
rations. The sick are not permitted to be
removed from .the infected district. Al
ready several hundred people have availed
themselves of the shelter in camp, and it is
expected tdat by this means the disinfected
district can be almost depopulated and
thereby prevent the spread of the disease
and probably stamp it out altogether.
A few stray cases have appeared in other
lirtions of the city in the healthier por-Iter's
tions, but such cases have caused no general ' he
alarm outside the immediate localities, i"--"-'-Fully
one-third of the white people who arop on
now here leave the city nt sundown,!
sleep in the suburbs and return to business ster
next morninir. The women and children.-om-have
nearly all left the city, with the ex-j of
ceptiou of those whr.su poverty compelsving
them to remain. After dark mir streets arejsel',
as deserted usa grave vurd; even the s iloonsleles
are closes. You meet none but the police
man on his beat, the physici.m on his way
to see some patient ami the newspaper re
porters 111 serch of news. NuinU-rsof bus
iness houses are closed t'ir the yellow fever
season and a general stagnation in trade
pievuils. This is the condition of our peo
ple at the present time und with no favor- 8.
able outlook until frost, which appcareth
not until October.

At Iluniside, Tuesday, there was a very
large audience who listened to liilii. The
crowd was estimated to liilllib'r from 11
titou-iund to fifteen hundred. Mr. Oberly
held his audience four hours, and up to the
(ins of his speech the crowd eagerly
li.-tetiecl, Mark Whittnker, who during
tii,, tii iv.i t , ,c li,,. ,,ii ...... ,-,,.i .,tr u.i,.. .
ing that he would not listen, stooiicd ut thcrf1'

ami near toe ripenser, unn seeioeti 10 oe
deeply interested in the speech to its close,
after which he admitted that it was the best
Democratic speech he ever heard. It is
possible that Oberly proved his words good
when he said to Wh'ttaker, "Hold on, hold
011, mv friend, listen to inc. and I will make
a Dene Hint out of you before I am through."
Can thk Tiit TH Ovkhtakk a Lik. In

reported 111 tin! Associated Dress dispatches,
about Aug. Kith, to have died in Chicago
after two weeks' use of some reputed reme
dy for corpulency, had not taken Allans
Anti-fat, but had used u preparation put up
by u regular physiciun in Luzerne, I'a.
Allan's Anti-fat is manufactured in Iiuffalo,
X. Y., by the undersigned. We have al
ready sold 1(10,01)0 bottles of it. It has
therefore been taken by thousands, ami
we challenge proof that it has
ever harmed anybody, unless the reduction
of obese persons from 20 to (10 pounds
leaving them healthy and strong, is consid
ered a misfortune. Furthermore, we here
by offer $."1,000 reward for evidence showing
that it contains poisonous or injurious
ingredients. We also offer $.1,000 if
we cannot prove that it bus reduced
numbers of persons as stated herein, and
always without injury. It is snid thut 11

we trust that those newspapers that have
misled the public by saying that physicians
have attributed the lady's death to the use
of Anti-Fut (which is only put up by us,
the term "Anti-Put" being our trade-mark 1,
will correct the false impression they have
