THE YELLOW FEVER!
THE EXCITEMENT AND PANIC AT
MEMPHIS ALMOST GONE.
NO NEW CASES REPORTED TO THE HEALTH
Memphis, Tenn., July 13. Up to the
present writing no new case3 of yellow fe
ver has been reported, and no case of sick
ness ia anyway resembling the dreaded dis
ease has been seen by the physicians as
far as heard from. The probability of an
epidemic is dispelled and ha3 cea-ed to be
a theme of conversation. The inttnse heat
is the absorbing subject ot discount Many
of the panic stricken who got awsy early
in the action are returning Lome sadder but
wiser trotu the fearful experience ?f anx
Washington, July 11th, 1970.
The unprecedented heat of the hit four
days, following so suddenly the cool wave
that came after the 4th, has had tho effect
to hasten the departure from town of all who
have L'een.Iiugerioar upon tho hnpe Pf a
coo! summer. The few senators and mem
bers who remained to attend to private busi
ness, have closed their affairs or are closing
them, and getting ready to go away, yester
pay was cue of the hottest days ever
here and to the south of us In Virginia, and
but for a cooling breeze in the early
evening would have been almost intolerable.
Iu connection with the enervating heat, a
scare was attempted touching the yellow
tever based upon its appearance at Mem
phis, but this was not even successful as a
passing sensation. The truth is that Wash
ington never was in so good a sanitary con
ilition as now. Everything that is possible
to be done is done to prevent disease engen'
dered by filth and malarial surroundings,
and improvements are going on constantly.
Shortly wo may bo able to boast that Wash
ington is one of the healthiest cities in the
country summer as well as winter.
New efforts of the speculators have been
brought to light to invade the Indian terri
tory under the pretense that certain lands
there purchased of the Indians by the
United States are open to settlement, but
in reality to enrich a graceless ring at the
expense of emigrants. The president and
secretary of the Interior gave notice long
ago that those lauds were not open for
settlers, and that ho emigration to the
Indian territory would be tolerated. Who
ever goes there and "squats" is liable to bo
ousted at any time, nud will lose all his
improvements. Nobody should be de
ceived by this effort to torco emigration
where it can not legally go, and the news
papers ought i ventilate the fraud that is
attempted in tins affair.

of the channel is nioro than
was contracted for, and many scientific and
practical men have endorsed the perma

applied on a larger scale to tho upper Mis

constituted, of which Capt. Eads is a mem

Although all the accounts have not'been
made up, it Is easy to estimate pretty closely ;
the relations of tho government receipts and
expenditures for the last fiscal year. Tho
total receipts for the year were 1274,034,916
against 237,703,879 for tho preceding
year, an iccreaso of $10,271,039 made up
Internal Revenuo 2,332,154
The receipts exceed the aggregate esti
mates presented to' congress ia December
last by the secretary of tho treasury by
$9,500,000. Tho ordinary expenses for tho
last fiscal year wero $101,089,232 against
$134,463,432 during tho preceding year .
an increase of $20,624,800. This includes
$3,500,000 paid on account of the fisheries
award, $3,500,000 paid on account of pen
sion arrearages, and $1,900,000 paid Capt.
Eads for improvemonts at the mouth of tho
Mississippi river. Deducting those threo
extraordinary items, the excess of ordinary '
expenses for the last fiscal, year, compared
with the year ending June 30, 1978, was
about $13,000,000. The net surplus of rcv
nues over expenditures is $7,040,000.
HYPOCRITICAL PROFESSIONS OF
LOVE FOR THE SOLDIER.
As the season for political conventions
has again arrived, we find the same old
sterotyped resolution passed in the Repub
lican conventions as were passed years ago,
lauding the "soldiers and sailors for their
sacrifices durina: the war," but tho conven
