Ramsey, one of the physicians who went to Memphis, ha; returned. le says: Before reaching Memphis, even when five miles out, the air was laden with yellow fever poison, and as we approached the city the stench was absolutely sickening. Dr. Pease and myself went to the Peabody Hotel, the only one now open, and were shown into a room from which a dead body had just been ri'r),oved. Vessels of black vomit were shaz7ding around in the room, and the bed clothes had not been changed. The hotel itself is a perfect pest house, and victims of the disease are in two-thirds of the rooms. Suilphur pans were kept burning in the halls, anud the clothes and bedding are being con-. stantly disinfected, but they cannot get enough help in the hotel to do what ought to be done. All commerce has ceased and business is suspended. People have no heart to attempt any regular business and could not if they would. Even liquor sa loons, for the most part, are closed, and provision stores as a rule are empty. The ;reatest need is provisions, clothing, phys icians, money, nurses and medicines. The best thing that can be done now is to send plenty of provisions, and clothing. Negroes and many poor whites for a section of 150 miles around Memphis have flocked in there hearing that they could get something to eat, and as for clothes, hundreds of poor people, mostly colored women, are going about the streets with hardly anything on at all. The sights in this respect are dis tressing. So far no serious outbreak has occurred, but the better class are in constant terror of a riot. The city is in the hands of the colored police altogether, and while they behave very well there is still a lurk ing fear on the part of the whites of some additional evil. ST.
