Major Connolly telegraphed Friday night the substance of a letter received from the Ameer, who confirms the news of the re volt, and adds that the regiments which have mutinied were joined by the populace.

' - t . r The following appeal is made by the Oddl Fellows of Memphis, under date of Sept. 6. The Odd Fellows special relief committee of Memphis are again forced to the necessi ty of appealing to the brotherhood at large for material aid. All the available funds of the five lodges and two encampments have been expended in sending many of their brethren and families to places of safety, in nursing and providing for the sick and burying the dead. Business is suspended, wages stopped, and sickness and death are making sad havoc in their midst. This ap peal is made with great reluctance in view of the generous outpouring of the substan tial aid which met similar appeals in 1873 and 1878, but with sickness and diotress up on every hand, with the wails of sorrow and cries for help coming up continually, their treasury exhausted, and the sad prospect of a continuance of the dreaded scourge of yellow fever for a period of at least two months to come, their only resource is an appeal for help from our more fortunate brethren who are spared such a calamity as n6W scourges their stricken city.
