No more sweet drops 'twould hold.

When baby eyes grow dim in death,

How long till griefs augels take wing?

The news girea below is of a hope-inspiring
character. It serves to assure us that

A Memphis special ia yesterday's St
Louis Republican says :
Memphis Is quiet at last. Faces whoso '
emotions yesterday wero expressed ia sor- ,
rowful perpendicular lines arc to-day
wreathed iu snule of huge horizontal dimen-
sions. No new cases have been reported,
and the prevailing impression now is that'
none will occur. Thero was never a more
COMPLETE CHANGE OF SENTIMENT
Than has taken place in the past twelvo
Lours. Phyiicians who have not yet had :,
much to say in the matter, but who ' have
been quietly and thoroughly investigating ,
the rumored cases, have to-day given pub
lic expression to their opinion, the essence ;
of which is that the cases reported arc only
sporadic, and thero beiug no spread of the
disease under the excessively hot tempera
ture is prima facia evidence thatthe disease
shows no disposition to become epidemic. '
TWELVE HOCUS LATEE.
Major Smith, of the City National Bank,
now ia Memphis, telegraphed to Capt. W.
P. Hallway, at 10 :55 a. m., yesterday, as .
A thorough investigation shows
that there has been only six cases, '
confined to three familias; three
deaths, these one mile from railroad ,
depot and river landing. .There has been
no spreading from theso cases. No new
cases for last 58 hours. Do not consider '
the city dangerously infected. Excitement -subsided.
Business very good. Rules
prescribed by .National Board of Health
will be enforced, if ia opinion of National
uoara ci ueaun aangerous miection snouia
occur. No danger to persons coming into
or going from Memphis at this time.
