have been heard of in one locality whose
names do not appear in the list. Among

dean of St. Mary's Episcopal cathedral. Dr.
Win. I lodges, alsosuicken down last night,
is a similar case. A negro woman called
at the rcsidence'of Dr. Hodges to get him
to visit u case at her house, und on opening
the door founij the doctor lying on the floor
in a senseless condition, his family being
absent from the city. Ho was there alone
and would have died without attention but
for the alarm given by tho woman. Ho is
now very low. The name of Mrs. W. A.

AMOSO THE NEW CASES
Reported to-day. Two cases of fever have
broken out at the Father Matthew aid
camp, six miles northeast of the city, one of
the healthiest localities in the vicinity
of Memphis. A number of cases are also
reported from Fort Pickering, the southern
suburb which lias been exempt from epi
demic of any character since 1,957, when it
was almost depopulated by yellow fever.
It is spreading rapidly in Chelsea, and
in the southeastern part of town new cases

By this it is seen that tli" di.-easc lias

THE DEAD BODY
Of a man so far decomposed as to defy
identification could not tell whether
white or black. Persons living in the
building say they saw a white man go into
that room drunk several days ago, but
have not seen him since.
Saw-mills and lumber dealers having
closed, tho county undertakers announce
their inability to bury the dead. It is
thought the mayor will order all tiie lum
ber to be tound converted into cotlins for
the pauper (load.
Chief of Police Athy and Father McNa
mara are both reported very low, with little
hope for the hitter's recovery. Thompson
and Iaudrum of the Avalanche are tiding
well, us is also Fred Rrumansof the Appeal.
The number of dead reported at the hoard

Tho weather was cloudy and warm to
day, with a light shower this afternoon.
Two hundred and llfty-thrce applications
for relief were made to tho Howards to
day. Members of the visiting committee
report a more general spread of tho fever
and state that they find it encroaching upon
localities heretofore measurably exempt.
Mr. C. E. Whitney, one of tho committee,
reported twenty -three, new cases in Ids dis
trict ami related an incident that occurred
at tho corner of Race and St. Thomas
streets, in tho upoer part of tho First dis
trict, which serves to show the rapid spread
of the lever in that locality. As ho ap
proached the corner he saw six or eight lit
tle children standing there. They ap
peared to recognize him as one of tho
Howards and each appealed to him to1 go
with them to their respective homes to see
the sick. He went to tho nearest house
pointed out, followed by tho little ones,
then to the next, the procession getting ouo
less at each house visited until every appeal
hud been answered.
Though the present situation is sad tho
general impression seems to bo that tho
worst has yet to come. The Ancient Order
of Hibernians make nn appeal to similar
organizations throughout tho United States
for assistance. They state that the yellow
fever is thinning their ranks; tho distress is
pitiful and their resources exhausted, and
appeal in God's name- for assistance to
alleviate tho sufferings of their alllieted
brethren. The Lotiisianian Portugese Ben
evolent association and the German Benev
olent association each make similar appeals
to their respective organizations throughout
the Union for assistance.
Tho Howard association had sent 10
nurses w ith Dr. Baldwin to Canton. A dis
patch from Dr. Stono nt Grenada reports
the condition of affairs unchanged. Ho
acknowledges daily receipts of fresh beef
and other supplies sent by the Howards.

ON A RAILROAD.
EFFECTS OF THE ANTICIPATED COMPLETION
OF A BAII.ItOAD ON TIIK MIND OF A
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS EDITOR.
When the morning stars sang together.
Ronton had no railroad. When that old
sarpent, the devil, squat like a toad at the
ear of our mother Eve and whispered
naughty things to her, Benton was without
a railroad. When Joseph tied from Mrs.
Potipltar. when Cleopatra sunned herself
on tho Nile, when Molly Hoses slept with
the bull rushing all around him, when
Sampson fired the tails of the foxes, when
Joseph explored tho vast profundity of
the whales inner recesses, Benton was
without a railroad. When Columbus
discovered a new world, when John A.
Logan was a pulling hinfant, Benton had
no railroad. The shining bands of com
merce were spread all over tho meek bosom
of mother Illinois, and the great tides of
trade flowing back and forth over them left
their golden settlings at every prominent
city in the state, save at Benton. Cairo has
her railroads. Shawneetown also knows
what a bonded debt on an iron horse signi
fies. Du Quoin, Carhondale, Marion, liar
risburg, St. Louis, Springfield and West
End, can sit open-eyed ami "hear the engine
holler." Benton, until now, has never folt
the beating of that great iron artery
through which flows the tratlic of a wide
awake world. No little Benton boy has
had the delicious pleasure of a stolen ride
on a cow-catcher, or had hot water squirted
on his bare shins by a facetious engineer.
Our undertakers have sold no cotlins for
people helped homo by a '"callusion."
These joys have all skipped us. But
now, like a boy on a bridge, with his
teeth set and his hands almve his head, wo
are about to take tho plunge, and tho an
ticipated delights awaiting us make us
shiver with bliss. The road is in sight.
The grading is going on right inside tho
corporation. In ten days Johu A. IOgau
and others will be sorry they ever left Ben
ton. But then they knew they had nr
chance here. They could not build rail
roads. We can, and have done so. In
spite of Bismarck and Bouconstield, the czar
and the yellow fever, Kearney, Ben Butler
and hard times in spite of several things,
we have just gone on, split our own raila
and built our road, and now we legin t(
feel scrumptious. We will soon be able to
elect a mayor and organize a tire company.
Circusses won't skip us any more.
Lecturers on phrenology will come,
in, and we can laugh over the explanation.
given of the bumps on our heads. Times
will be brisk. Taxes will be high, and
thunder generally will bo to pay. What
was the use of being an editor in Benton
with a railroad pass and no road to uso it
on. It was worse than a bachelor with a
hoopskirt, or a boy with the measles and
no brother to give them to. Oh, well, tho
whirlegiggle of time brings in his revenge.
We have the road, and now will do as the.
man did who married on tho lovo at first
sight principle. We will try to form the
acquaintance of the critter. For tho pres
ent "hallelujer;" for tho hearafter, if we
step on n red-hot cinder, somelwdy's foot
will get burned!
