Ho .has won his title to the highest consideration of our people as r brave and reliable citizen in time of distret and sickness. Hon. Casey Yokno. our member of Cor ffresi, bas been assiduous in his attention t' his duties as a member of the citizens' reli- committee until yesterday, when he was com pelled to takeo his bed with a case of chilK He is under the care of Dr. Thornton, wLc will do all that ho can to prevent an attack of fever, which just now is greatly to I ' feared. Colonel lonng has done his duly nobly. He has stood by his people jr their hour of distress. We hope to see him on his feet again in a few days. Dr. A vest, ore of our best and oldett physicians, has paid the penalty of his devo tion to duty. He died at his residence, 3C!) Vance street, yes'erday. A modest, onassum ing gentleman, his worth was best known I those who knw how rare a thing real scien tific skill is. He was highly esteemed by the faculty, not only of Memphis, but of tb State and the surrounding States, and f.tooi' high with the people as an upright citizer During the late civil war he held very hiph rank on the medical staff of the Confederal army, and in that position made for himsel' an enviable reputation ns a medical expert. Judge RonrnT IlL"r$nrxsoj, who recent ly was a candidate on the Democratic ticbf t for circuit court judge, died yesterday of th fever, at the residence of Judge Halsey, on the Poplar street Coulevard. One of tbe most modest and unassuming cf men, he was als3 one of the ablest members of the bar During the war he served as a private sol dier, carrying his musket with unfaltering steadiness throughout the struggle between the States. A good husband and father, he was a model citizen, whose loss men of all parties and of all grades of life will deeply mourn. Dr. John Euskine, who has been work ing an average of sixteen hours a day since the epidemic set in, as Ilealth Officer and physician, was taken with the fever yester day. Everybody will hope and pray for his recovery. We cannot spare so tireless and indefatigable an officer and a physician of se much experience and ability. He has worked in the ioteiet of the city faithfully and well, employing every medium for disinfect ing and warJing off the epidemic that his own or the experience of others could sug gett. Besidt s which be has been a faithfu! physician to hundreds whose confidence in him bas grown with the yiars during which, iu and out of tbe army, he has practised among this peoi!e. No one that knows the Rev. Dr. Landrum, pastor of the Central Baptist church, whether he be Baptist, Jew or Catholic, but will praj for his recovery. From the outset of tb dreadful plague he has been on his feet night and day, a nurse here and an advisor there, but always the man of God carrying the blessed consolations of the gospel to those who were waiting the new birth. How many sick rooms his pleasant face has lighted np, and to bow many he has been a light, lighting a way otherwise dark and dreary no one but himself and those he succored can tel). He was every hour ot day and night at his post, doing his duty, taking no account of his own safety, but leaving that to the Great Disposer of Soulf. The loss of his talented son and the sickness of his wife will, no doubt, be an aggravation of his disease. But with it all we pray that he may recover, and find many moro years of usefulness, such as he has found in the past of a life well sppnt. Captain A. T. Lacky, at one time the most opulent merchant of Memphis, and al ways a well-to-do business man, died of yel low fever yesterday morning at his residence in Chelsea. He caine to this city in 1SG2 from St. Loui, where he was for many years engaged in the steamboat business and gen eral merchandising. Here for five years hf did a very large business as a grocery and cotton merchant, but the collapse of 1S6" caught him, and he went down for a large amount, which we believe he since full) liquidated. He was, when he died, a partner of General A. J. Vuughan, recently elected criminal court cit-rk, the firm being agent for the Grangers of this and counties in th adjoining States. Captain Lacey served evetal terms in the Missouri Legislature, and once in that of this State, being elected presi dent of our State Senate. He was a candi date for Corgrpss before two successive Dem ocratic Conventions, and was regarded one of the shrewile-t and mcst astute politicians in the SUte. Messrs.

For this we are truly grateful, and are indebted to Mr. Sj'iouiod Friedman, who is a member of the exrc-itive otutnittee, and who, unce the fe ver first broke out here and in Grenada, has bi-en constantly engaged in collf cticff fund?. o the entire neglect of his private business, He has the tbaaks of our entire community. Mk. Herbert Landrl-m, local editor cf the Avalanche, died yesterday morning of the evnratthe residence of his parent. Like his father, the reverend pastor of tbe Central Lt.iptist church, he knew no fear where duty was to be performed. He stood to his pot and braved all the terrors of the epidemic, not only performing hi own accustomed labors but taking on cheerfully the load that others dropped as they died or fled from the ulague. How tenderly and with what watch fulness he nursed the late Mr. Tnompson, to whom he was very much attached, all who knew him are cognizant of. Falling from exhaustion when his brother editor died he recuperate J, and agaiu took his place as the only one of the Avalanche staff left. There be staid, doing double duty until the fever rook him. After a comparitively brief bittle he succumbed, and is now numbered with those who fell with their faces to the foe fhe most promising man in the profession, his triumphs were only limited by the de mands which each day made upon him. Quick, witty.nparkling and bright, he bade fair to outshine all bis contemporaries as a par agraphist and chronicler of city affairs. He never knew a dull moment, and grasped as eagerly the points of others as he spontace Oualy made those of his own. Cut off in the bud and promise of a useful career in a pro fession to which he seemed to be born, it will be difficult to replace him. To the mental qualities and readinesss of pen which d.stin guished him, he added diligence and sobriety. No man could be more earnest or mora in dustrious. He knew what was valuable as news by instinct and grasped it without de lay. To the members of the profession, he was always courteous, kind and affable. They recipocrocated fully his good feeling, and promptly as he won it, recognized his place in the profession. We deeply mourn his death, and earnestly condole with his parents upon tne loss ot a son wno gave promise or a most useful and honorable career. THE FEVER ABROAD. Urand Junction. Tenn.

His condition now, 9 o'clock, is favorable for his recovery. Messrs. Chanes, Frank and Mrs. Otto are here. Mrs. Otto and Charles had the fever before they left Memphis, and are now all right. This place numbers about 6,500 people, and the mortuary report for the month of August shows only seven deaths, one adult, who came from Memphis, and died with fevi-r, and six children; some of them were still born.

We trust he is on duty, al though his communication is dated Memphis. Still free Irom Yellow Jack here. Koreat Hill, Tenn. From an Appeal Correspondent - Fokest Hill, Shelby Co , Tenn., Sept. 10. Considerable sickness ot a malarial na ture has recently developed iu this conimuity. Some deaths have lately occurred, and many of the citizens are much alarmed farii.g that the yellow fever will be general throughout this section of country. Contiguous to tl e line of the Memphis and Ch.irlet.tou railroad, there was last year about this season, much sickness of tbe same character as now exiots, ut tnen called malarial fever. This country lies between two bottoms, (Wolf river and Xononnah creek), and thy may render it subject to, and account for malaria! influeccts. Now that the citizens of C ilHemlle have stampeded and tld to the cjur.try, mnny persurs about Centre Hill. Olive Branch and other small places, suspiciously uread every case ot ague heard of, and are anxious about preventives, etc. Some of the doctors seem about as bally or worse scared than others, and are in a measure responsible for the present fright. Some concern is felt regard ing supplies, bagging, etc , as cotton is now fast ! eing picked, and the usual Memphis market is virtually cut off. " V here will we sell our cotton and obtain suppli t," is the question. I presume our Memphis cotton bujers will tffect some arrangtinent by which tbe cotton crop of this vicinity can be mar keted, and cheap freight secured from St. louis and Louisville via GmdcI Junction or Corinth until their return t ) '- ir now devas tated city, and resumption c Y-'wa"- la this neighborhood are Judge ' V.

He extinguished it before damage occurred. Had it not been for his timely ar rival, the hotel with twenty odd patients would have been destroyed.

Paxe Mulkey, an em ploye of the Bulletin, is very low with the sum complaint. The Bulletin, of this morn ing, reported Aally recovering trom bilious fever, and until noon this was believed to be the fact. The announcement of these two cases as yellow-fever has caused quite an ex citement, and many are leaving the city to night. Proper precautions have been taken to prevent a spread of the infection. The publication of the Bulletin has been tempo rarily suspended. No other cases are yet re ported. Yiekebnrar. Vicksblug, Sept. 12. Cloudy and very cold, with strong north wind since yesterday.

Potts and Bichfeldt, of Chattanooga, who came here to aid the suf ferers Two doctors, Bichfeldt and Norris, with ten nurses, camo hero from Chattanooga, and both doctors are dead, and nine nurses are sick. It is best for physicians and nurses tbat bave not had the fever to kvi c - y from Vicksbarg. They are almost c i t .in to be attacked y the fever, and as in the case case ot Drs. Bichfeldt and Norris, may prove fat i!. The fever in this section is far more malignant than tbat of 1853. The deaths yesterday wer f 42. to-day 31. The new cases are unknown, but it is generally thought by the drugu'ibts the fever is decreasing in new cases for want of material. The fever is spreading throughout Warren county.
