Tiik Marion Monitor is reckless in its
charges against Judge Allen. It is entirely
lost to truth if not to forgiving grace.
Among its charges is one that Judge Allen
was elected to congress in 1802 by the
Knights of the Golden Circle. The truth is,
Judge Allen never had anything to do with
the Knights. He never belonged to the
organization, nnd took every occasion to
condemn it as an unwise as well as unpatri
Have you heard .lie news from Maine f
No? "Why, really, it is wonderful. The
power of Republicanism is bioken. The
Democrats und Nationals, nctingin combin
ation, have almost sponged out the Repub
lican majority. It is probable neither of
the candidates for governor is elected, and
that the selection of the executive officer of
the State will devolve upon the legislature,
which is anti-Republican. It is also prob
able that Eugene Hale is defeated for con
gress. Carry the news to Dlaine. The
handwriting is on the wall !
The Chicago Railway Review says tiiat
notwithstanding the great present calami
ty overhanging the South, New Orleans does
not giveup the work of endeavoring to build
up its commerce. Invitations arc issued for
delegates from the different commercial bo
dies of tha West to attend the Coninvrcbil
Convention to be held there Ifcc. :id. The
svvere affliction which that portion of
the South is undergoing, presses hard
upon its business interests. Sympathy
should be tor the con
dition in which trade will be left, even after
the frost has killed the fever. Tie subjects
to be discussed at the convention are: The
improvement of the Mississippi river and its
tributaries; the necessity of a Southern Pa
cific railway and the promotion of our com
merce with West India Islands, Mexico ami
South America. We heartily join in the
hope of the committee itsuing the call, that
the railway, steamljout and shipping inter
ests may all be fully represented.
The deaths from yellow fever at Mem
phis Tuesday were 208, an increase over the
proceeding day of nearly 100. While con
sidering this fact, the curious may find food
for speculation in the condition of the
weather tit that place day before yesterday.
The daily bulletin ol the signal service
contains reports from eighteen places. On
Tuesday at 3 :4i o'clock p. m. the thermom
eter stood at 02 degrees at Memphis, t-5 at
Cairo, 88 at New Orleans, 80 at Vieksburg,
07 at St. Louis, and (JO at St. Paul and
Yankton. The weather was cooler at Mem
phis than ut any other place in the whole
country, excepting at La Crosse, Wisconsin,
w here the thermometer stood nt '!?; Omaha,
Nebraska, where it stood ut 01, and St. Paul
and Yankton. The change in the tempera
ture was a fall of 2:1 degrees at Memphis, u
greater change than occurred at any other
place. At Cairo the change was 10 degrees
of u fall; at New Orleans 1 degree of it rise,
and at Vieksburg only S degrees of a full.
The relative tier cent, of humidity was .'J
at Cairo, 74 at Vieksburg, 50 at New Or
leans and 04 at Memphis. A study of these
facts must lead to the conclusion that the
alarming fatality of the fever at Memphis
is attributable to a condition of the atmos
phere peculiar to that place.
In a letter to n commercial house of
Louisville, Kentucky, a prominent citizen
of Memphis, writing from a yellow fever
camp, says: "We have hud a trying and
desperate tight with the fever at this camp,
but 1 begin to feel we have conquered.
You can form m idea of the distress.
Women in child-birth, surrounded by little
ones, quartered in tents, see one by one pass
from their sight on to the hospital, thence
to the grave. Soon the babe isborn. yellow
ns gold; the mother lingers a few days, and
then she, the last of the household, is tmt
under the ground. We save no women w ho
are attacked. Such as are pregnant, mis
carry ; others, when attacked, have prema
ture hemorrhage liclore the regular
monthly period, mid there is no cure
for such. Yesterday a woman and two
pretty daughters of 12 and 10 ye ns walked
from tin! train to my tent, and reported for
assignment toqitavti is, 1'roiii my fi.iniliar
iiy with tin' disi:its.', I at once remarked:
"Why, woman, your two girls have the fe
vr."' The eldest one said: ".No, sir, in
deed ; I never felt better in my life: 1 had
u little ( hill yesterday, but 1 am well now."
Her piilsesh iwcd 12."i, Mupi rat tire 104, ryts
glassy, skin pulled and tile whole emmteti
mice a beautiful pink. In order to quiet
.t;id gratify the mother, I put up a tent near
me for the night. Next morning I hud
tie in examined, nnd both wire sent to the
hospital. I ws down there this noon. The
mother is pr istr.ite w ith n. rv.ow prostration
and thechildren lie in the Potter's tMd." He
describes the first symptoms us "heaviness
and a slight chill, then suppression of the
urine, pulled faced, glas-y eye, beautiful
Hushed skin, pink eyelids, pulse 120, tem
perature Hi:) to 100. Soon vomito begins,
which is simply a hawking sound and spit
ting of a coffee-ground substance from the
stomach, w hich to the bottom of the
vessel. The patient, after each emission
feels well, and would get up if allowed.
No pain; no evidence of concern, either by
look or at tion. The pulse begins to run
down to HO, 80, 70, 50, 40; then conies to
the pinched nostril and mechanical breath
ing. They sit up; want to get i:p; are
induced to lie down, and quietly pass
Thk yellow fever epidemic of 1S73 in
Memphis, dreadful as it was, becomes n

The Appeal pertinently remarks that this
statement shows how much more rapid and
fatal the fever has been this year than in
Two Noi'Kit (litAVK RomiKtis. Our
readers will remember the account given in
these columns of the robbing of the grave
of the Hon. Seott Harrison, in Ohio, last
May. the body being found in the dissect
ing room of the Ohio Medical College.
Public indignation justly brands any man
us n scoundrel who will rob the grave of
the dead, lint there are two noted grave
robbers in the country, so far from being
ine sunjects ot tins pen
pie's wrath, are universally lauded
for their virtues. The reason is plain.
While the former class steal the dead bodies
of our loved ones to uhmit them to the (lis
seeling knife, these only roh the graves to
restore the living victims toour hearts uml
