ITS DEADLY GRIP RELAXING
KKW8 FBOM THE INFECTED DISTRICTS.
New Orleans, Nov. 1. Weather clear
and cool. Deaths, 8; cases reported, 80;
total deaths, 3,937; total cases, 13,163.
Ali-aainU -day services took place in the
Catholic and Episcopal churches. The
decoration of tombs in cemeteries was gen
eral and elaborate and visitors were more
numerous than usual. Of the eighty cases
of fever reported to the board of health to
day, only four are classed as new cases.
Physicians who have not reported cases be
fore are now reporting them, some dating
back several weeks.
Vicksbcbo, Nov. 1. Another day has
passed with but one death in our city. Miss
Hennette Jones died ot consumption. One
yellow fever death is reported for the coun
try. Two . new cases are repotted iu this
city Tom Phelan and Jacob Hertzel. We
had a good freeze last night. Quite a num
ber of requests have been received from
refugees asking permission to return, but
all have been warned against such a move,
for nine-tenths of the cases during the past
week or two have been returned refugees.
The quarantine restrictions on the Yicks-
bnrg, shreveport and Texas railroad have
been removed, and travel is unobstructed
between this city and Monroe, La.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. I. One
deatn to-day t. v. tuny, a promising
young druggist from Nashville, clerking in
Eastmans. No new cases. Much to'the
gratification of citizens generally, wc had a
heavy frost and good freeze this morning.
Cold and clear all day. Another frost is
expected to night. The thermometer at 9 p.
it. stood at 40.
- ' HOLLY SPRINGS.
Hour Sprtkos, Miss., Nov. 1. Six new
evses and one death yesterday ; four new
cases to-day, no death. Heavy frost fell
last night; prospects of another to-night.
The hospital closed to-day, and many busi
ness houses are opened.
Jackscw, Miss., Nov. 1. Five new cases
but no deaths for three days. Total cases,
416 ; deaths, 00. . Population the past
month estimated at 3,900. Henry E. Sing
er, an old citizen, will probably die to-night.
Ice last right.
' .; GREENVILLE, MisS.
Greenville, Miss., Nov. 1. No new
cases of fever here. - Tlicie was a decided
freeze last night, after a fine frost the pre
ceding day. The board of health deem it
safe for refugees to return.
Memphis, Nov. 1. Business is fairly re
sumed, and nothing is heard about the re
cent pestilence except occasionally some en
thusiastic hero is heard relating what he
saw and did during the epidemic. To those
who suffered the loss of family and friends,
and who havn summoned sufilcient courage
to return to business, the scenes and trials
are laid away iu the heart among the un
pleasant archives ot the past. Those who
passed through and survived are disposed to
speak of the terrible past in a flippant man
ner. The tide of returning absentees con
tinues to flow into the city, taxing railroad
companies to their utmost for transportation
facilities. The streets have been thronged
all day with people, a goodly number being
the first instalments of merchants from the
interior, come in to replenish their depicted
stocks of goods and to sell cotton. The lat
ter article Is arriving daily in immense
quantities. Business is itself again so to
speak, and Memphis can again lift her head
above the fearful tide that nearly swept her
from the face of the earth.

Norwich (Conn.) Bulletin. '
A Norwich teacher was practicing her
youtlilu.1 clas3 in original composition yes
terday, and gave one pupil the subject
"Boy" to write upon,; The subject was to
be treated on in thre parts first, what is
it? second, what is its use? and third, what
is it mado ol ? The lad wrestled hard tor a
few minutes in desperate perplexity, and
then wandered up to the teacher's desk

WAS HLNGTON LETTER. V
Washington, October 31, 1878.
Hon. Frank Ilurd, hardest of hard-money
Democrats, elected to Congress from the
Toledo district of Ohio, has just been "in
terviewed"' iu New "York. Of the Demo
cratic presidential nomination for 1880 Mr.
Hurd said : "I believe Mr. Thurman to bo
the proper man for the Democrats to nomi
nate. Ue is, in fact, the only man who can
carry the state of Ohio against a popular
Republican candidate, and ' if the party
thiuks the electoral vote of that state neces
sary to elect its presidential candidate it will
That Mr. Ilurd speaks the opinion of
Ohio Democrats generally, and of a vast
number of Eastern and well a9 Western
Democrats, is certain. Mr. Thurman
certainly without regard to politics, the
most influential member of the present Sen
ate. At the last session of Congress, espec
ially, was this perceptible in a great deal of
the legislation. In the Presidency or else
where he would reflect credit upon the
If there be any truth in the rumor now
current that Mr. Tilden will refuse to allow
the use of his name in connection with
nomination for any office, his determination
was probably reached before what is spok
en of as the cipher telegram exposure. Mr,
T. is not the man to withdraw in the face
of slander. One version of the story of
withdrawal Is that he communicated his in
tention to Mr. Hendricks, a year or so ago.
when the two met at Saratoga. But, how
ever vnrious the versions, it may bo sately
said that it is current belief here that Mr
T. has written the letter, and that he can
not be considered as in the way of any oth
er gentleman who desires or whoso friends
him to be a candidate.
Those who read the Radical bluster
about the congressional and other gains iu
the November states, should remember that
most of it originates with Eugene Hale,
chairman of the Republican Congressional
Committee. They should olso remember
that,- a few days before his 8,000 majority
was turned into 8,000 minority. In the Sep
tember election, he boasted that he should
be elected by a larger majority than before.
That is the kind of prophet he is. Another
significant fact is that much was expected,
lately, from.tho changed attitude of the ad
ministration as to Southern aflaits, and from
stories of outrages in the South. Bnt iu
both these things it is becoming plain that
the hope was a delusion, as it should be.
If the Democrats lose a congressman here
and there through local dissensions in
strong Democratic districts, the loss will be
more than made up in the steady and irre
sistable tendency of people all over the
country to quit the Radical party.
Mr. Schurz made his second speech of
the campaign in Boston on Monday even
ing. As in his Cincinnati speech, he seems
not to have advanced any new idea on the
finances, the subject on which he talked,
but ho grouped together skillfully the
points mado by others, and this, with' his
attractive manner of speech, seems to have
pleased the Bostonians. Mr. Schurz should
devote his time to making speeches.
No man not born to our language aid
habits has ever been more popular than he.
Besides that, it is his nature to talk, and it
is impossible for him to help thinking about
talking, whether ho talks or not. And
while he talks and thiuks about talking,
Ins subordinates manage the Interior De
partment. To be sure little carruption has
been discovered during his term as Secre
tary, but there wero never before so many
delays and contradictions, or so much va
cillation in the conduct of business. With
its present head, or, perhaps, lack of head,
the perpetration and discovery of unprece
dented f -auds in the Interior Department is
only a question of time.
