AX AFFXICTED VILLI.AGE.
The Ravages -of tlie Cholera in
Mount Veron, Southern TfirH&-a,
The Mount. Vernon, Ind., corres
pondent of the Louisville Journal July
16th, furnishes this:
To'give you some idea of the ruin that
has followed close upon the heels of this
" Demon of the Ganges." I will cite a few
of the more prominent families that it has
vibited. In a family named Bell, two are
left alive out of seven persons; in one
named Hovey, relations of General Ho vey,
two died; in that of Shelden, four deaths
in that of the "Woodeys, proprietors of the
foundry, the utmost havoc was made.
One of the proprietors died with it; in his
brother's family, a wife and two children
"were buried, and so great was the excite
ment and fright that I- am told the hus
band had to prepare the "bodies for the
tomb. In their father's family all but two
were buried. These are individual cases.
But I failed to find a single person who
had not had cholera symptoms more or
less violent in their effects. Every house
is pervaded with the odors of disinfectants;
every person smells of asafoetida and
camphor; cherub-looking children give
out this nauseating smell from their gar
ments. Certainly it wojAld seem that
everything possible has been done to stay
the disease. 'Bosin, pine tar and coal
were burned by order of the board of
Health, so that one could feel the heat all
over the place, but in spite of all prevent
atives and science, for ten days the plague
carried off its victims. Prom my room
at midnight, I could hear the noise of fun
erals. Tou cannot understand to what
extremities the citizens and families have
been driven. Medical aid was insufficient.
The doctors could not be at all places at
all times, and many have died who might
have been saved had it been possible to
have treated them the instant the dis
ease came upon them. Yet the phyi
cianshave alf acted heroically, with a sin
gle exception, whose leaving with his fam
ily has excited a storm of indignation.
But up till to-day he had "worked hard.
For ten days the doctor had scarcely any
rest, and been busy in going from house
to house, for every dwelling almost had its
cholera patients. Scarcely a business
house was open to-day; the streets were
deserted, the banks closed, and the depot
thronged with citizens fleeing for their
lives from the city. I think at least 700
persons have left to-day alone. People
living in the lower land, or flats, and who
have been unable to leave, have removed
to store rooms and warehouses,where they
are living, and hoping to escape the
disease. New cases were reported to-day
but the general belief is that the disease
has reached its height; at least the symp
toms of the new patients are reported as
less violent and much milder than those
of two days ago.
One single fact remains o be cited, and
that is, there is seemingly no reason for
this infliction of the pestilence. The town
has had the reputation of being as healthy
as Evans ville, and one of the most healthy
in Southern Indiana. The adjoining
tracts are not awampy, and the bluff on
-which a part of tho city is built is the
highest between Evansville and Cairo.
Some attribute it to the use of well-water;
but every house has a cistern, from "which
the water for cooking and drinking is ob
tained; and the water of wells was prob
ably used less even than in other places.
The trial of the Chinese conspira
tors Hip Yee Tong Co. who are ar
raigned on a charge of extorting $S50
as the price of a Chinese "woman
from another Chinaman, is exciting
very considerable attention in San
Pran cisco. Ir. Lobshi, of 'the Chi
nese mission school was called upon
to interpret the records of the Chi
nese company before the jury. The
dispatch says: "He translated several,
but when he came to the record of
sales of women and punishment in
flicted on themfor disobedience to
their owners anolthe edicts of the so
ciety he got frightened and refused
to proceed. The court told him he
must translate all or h2 would be
punished for contempt, and gave him
till Monday to consider the matter.
Mr. Loomis is to aid him in the trans
lation. All records have on the hack
the words, "United hands of justice.'
The Chinaman against whom he
conspiracy was raised still fears the
vengeance of Hip Yee Tong, and will
not go out of the Mission House alone.
He says he fears that the same so
ciety failing to harm him here, will,
unless he pays their demand, wreak
vengence on his .relatives in China,
lle.testified. that when brought be
fore the tribuimlr boutthirty men
were present, xwiuHone'gcooa xu me
