CHEEKING FUOSPfclT.
While the mortality report is still a
thing to -weep over, still tells a st'-ry
that sjJeaka'fearfully of the power of the,
fever to destroy, we yet have the grati
fying assurance to convey to-day
of a rapid abatement of the disease, to
be accelerated, no doubt, by the very
cold weather prevailing. Tho. number
of ew cases yesterday was very
smalt so small as to encourage
tiie belief that, perhaps. thisl
"waek.oVd weather continuing, will see
thektstof.theyellow-fever. The deaths
imported yesterday number twenty
eight eighteen from yellow-fever and
tea from other causes. Two of the cases
reported were thrown ont by the health
officer, tot informality, but wo count
them in to avoid any possible misappre
hension abroaj. Those ofourcitizensout
of the eity will be advised, when they
way return by an otlioial notification.
Until that is published, let them con
teat themselves in patience. Only a
few days more and we will be together
again.

Graut hi a negro, who at present lives
:n Johnson county, about two iles
f tuth west of Oak Grove church, but who
.ve lelied did live in this neighbor
innl. He had had same difiicultv with
lilt deceased, and threats had" been
ausd o both sides. Grant cauio into
town about four o'clock Weil need ay
evening and was arrested by Deputy
ConteW"(;. V. Prince. He said that
he had jt heanl of the killing, and
ore up well for one accused of
s aaave an offense. He was searched
ana a revolver vas found upon his
iemon which did not suit the bli
which did the d adly work. Constable
Grille went to Grant's house as soon as
' he verdict was rendered, to arrest him,
and found there in the pos&essiou of
i.uoJier negro a pistol which carried a
i -all of exactly the same size as that
which did the killiuz. and we under
stand that a warrant has been issued for
his apprehension.
There are many circumstances which
render it improbable thut the killing
was itone by negroes. The wife of the
dr censed says that their voices did not
'uih! like negroes, and the deceased
vould have known if it had been ne
Sroeu, ami would have at once suspected
designs upon himself, and would not
have gone out to them. It is known
that the deceased had been a bard
character, and had done a creat many
-ad things, but since his return to this
part of the country two years ago, he
had behavod very well. There are
other th ugs which may turn up which
will change the aspect of affairs, and
we ouiy hope that justice may bo dealt
out to the soiity parties.
