THE GREAT HEAT WORSE THAN THE
Special to the Republican.
JlEJirnis. July 14. While our heads
hare been running wild over the rumors of
yellow fever the unprecedented numbrof
fatal cases of sunstroke have almost been
lost. Figuratively speaking we have
knocked the staves out to get a piece with
which to plug the bung hole. Not a day
passed last week that did not furnish one
or more cases of sunstroke, nearly all of
which resulted fatally. There occurred four
cases Saturday, but not tatal; one Sun
day, which died to-day, and three to-day,
one of which died three liotrr""nfter tT?M-'
tack. The latter victim was .John C.
Spaulding, one of the telegraph operators
who burvived the yellow fever .. epidemic of
last year. Mr. Chas. Gascon, receiviug-
clerk of the telegraph office, had also, a
slight attack of sunstroke and on being
carried home and promptly attended is out
of danger. Many of the citizens who fled
on the first outbreak of tho fever scare am
returning and tho streets again present a
lively appearance. Yellow fever ceases to
be of absorbing interest and is seldom
mentioned in conversation.
Associated Press Report .
Memphis, July 14. No new cases have
been reported. Mrs. Tobiu, residing on
Bradford street, died this morning at sis
o'clock and was buried at dirht. This
leaves but one person in tho entire city
(Judge Ray's son) who is sick with fever,
and be is reported as dying. Local stations
along tho Memphis and Little Rock rail
road have notified tho Memphis authorities
that if no new cases devtlope by to-morrow
quarantine would be raised between Mem
phis and Lonoke, Ark., which is twenty-
seven miles this side of Little Rock.
Weather continues very warm.
The following was telegraphed to-day to
every station along the lines of the four
railroads leading from the city.
No new cases since the morning of tho
10th inst. Fever is confined to the six
sporadic cases. Memphiuns arc returning.
Persons from adjacent towns are coming in.

COMPLETION OF THE JETTIES.
A GREAT ENGI.NEEIU.NO FEAT BUCCESSECLLr
From tho Now Orleans Times.
Tho completlou of tho jetties' work as
announced In our telegraphic colums this
morning, certainly marks an eventful era
In tho commercial history of this city, and
n tho development ot the tuturo great trade
of tho Mississippi valley, as woll as in tho
remarkable life and successes of that indo
mitable man and great unrivalled cngineor,
who has brought this work to such a speedy
and surprising culmination.
It startles ono s ruinel to attempt to real-
ze that lending from the Gulf of Mexico
uto tho Mississippi rivor, over and thronirh
aa immense and apparently unyielding bar,
whew but four rears since a maximum
depth of but eight feet could be obtained,
tuera u this day a navigato cuaanei ot
thirty feet depth, and that thin colossal un
dertaking has been consummated by what
are now so familiarly kuown as Capt. EadV
jetties, and that this fact records the com
pletion of Capt. Bads' darinsr. and extraor
dinary contract, and solves tho greatest
engineering feat ever attempted under pri
vate auspices and at private risk.
The work is done. But a few hours, and,
wherever the telegraph extends, will be lier
alded its triumphant conclusion. Where
but four years ago thero was hardly water
sufficient to float an oyster lugger, tho
Great Eastern can to-day rido in perfect
Whereas, four years ago, it was some
times hazardous and always an uncertain
experiment for vessels drawing more than
sixteen feet to attempt to enter our port
New Orleans is to-day open to the fleet
ana tne navies ot the world.
So far as our prosperity and development
are Involved in commercial facilties, they
are henceforward assured. So far as that
city's destiny depended upon her harbor
being made accessible and convenient that -consummation
is now within our reach.
The work is done. Human patience and
courage ond Industry, Lacked by an iudom
itable and untirinar will, and informed ntl
directed by human skill, have applied the
forces of nature to tho accomplishment of
an cud to vast for merely artificial agen
cies, and tho tremendous river which, un
controlled, has been its own oppressor and
imprisoner, has now become its own libera
tor and savior.
There is no achievement of mechanical
genius which compares with it in the splen- .
dor of its economies or in the magnitude of
its results. There is no parallel instance of
man's employment of the prodigious ener-
rrl.ia nf natlira in fhft wnAK.Atinn rC I . . .
aims. It stands alone in these respects aa
it does in almost incalculable possibilities
which it has brought within our reach.
It is at once pathetic and astounding to
look back four 6hort years aud recall not
only the formidable, the seemingly hope
less difficulties of tho task assumed by
Capt. Eads, but the sneers, tho discourage
ments, the open hostility of an almost un
broken front of public opinion.
Never was the advocate of a great idea
made the focus of more misrepresentation,
eletraction, malice, enmity and official
jealousy. Never was there a more deter
mined and gystemotric effort to crush a
man with the very magnitude and original
ity of his conceptions. Wc can afford tu
forget, or rather to forgive, all that to-day,
however, in view of the superb victory he
has achieved. Not alone has he crushed
into uttcrsilence the voice of envy and dis
paragement, but has subjugated and con
verted into servitors of man tho forces of
the everlasting elements. His triumph is
celebrated in no glittering aud gorgeous
structure boautifufto the eye and' impres
sive to the imagination; it is uot written in
marble nor perpetuated in storied urn or
sculptured stone, but so long as commerce
swarm into this port and nature's unfriend
ly action is held in check by his masterful
and inflexible veto, so long will New Or
leans nnd tho Mississippi valley in their
power accumulatft-.lho majestic tribute tu".t,
hunian progress to' the genim, courage" and
indomitable energy ot Capt. Jas.'Eacts.

"Whithek are you bound?" asked John
Moor, as he stood in tha door-way of his es

Rodgers walking slowly past. The latter,
with sunken eyes and palid visage, bearing
evidenco of disease, hastened to reply:
"I have long suffered all the horrors arising
from an inactive liver, aud am going to the
office of Dr. Slow to seek relief." "Do no
such thing," said his friend, "wheu you
