Abatement of the Plugne An Enconr- Aging Outlook Onlj Eighty-fire Sew Cases Reported 1 ester day by the Howard Physicians. Forty-nine Deaths Reported, only Thirty Four or Which are Chargeable to Yesterday anies of the Phy sk-ians Sow on Duty, who are Sick and who Iiare Died in the Service of the Howard Asso ciationReports from Societies Interesting Incidents The Condition or the Sick and Convalescent. Tho fever is rapidly abating, and we may now look forward with hope, born of cer tainty, that two weeks more will find us, if not entirely free of it, so near to that long wished for condition aa to enable us to breathe freer than we have since the first of August last. The new cases reported yester day were only eighty-five, figures that prove how weak is the hold the plague has upon us compared with a week a ago. The deaths, though reported forty-nine, will not militate -igainst this when it is understood that of that number thirty-four only were of yester day, the remainder being of the twenty-sixth and twenty-seventh. The daily average of deaths since the twenty-fifth has fallen from fifty-three, at which it stood for the preceding seven days, to forty, a decline, that all things considered, is very rapid. Within the next S3ven days it ought to decline below thirty, aud after that the falling off should be still more rapid. DEATHS SATURDAY. The following is the official list of deaths reported to the Board of Health, for the twenty-tour hours, ending at six o clock: last evening: WHITES. M E Firth. 29 Echols.

Wendall, from Lima; Peiu but recently of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been here the past eight-or ten days quietly but dill gently Investigating the character of the malady that has been so dreadful. The doctor has great ex perience In epidemics and is capable of giving valu able Information to the medical fraternity, and withal Is a clever, genial gentleman with whom It Is a pleasure to converse. The Flynn family, living in the northern part of I he city, near the Louisville railway, have suffered fearfully. The father died several days ago. A daughter has oeen down tnineen nays, and nas had oue spell of black vomit, but yesterday her con dition gave some hopeful symptoms. Another daughter, aged fifteen, was strlckea yesterday. They have an attentive and experienced nurse In Mr. Henry Green, of Charleston. Captain Tom Johnston has, at last, had to succumb to the prevailing. No man has come nearer doing his duty to his fellow-men than Cap tain Johnston, and no one will be more missed. He was one of tbe Odd-Fellows relief committee, but did not confine himself alone to his stricken breth ren. Heeave relief wherever It was needed, we look with anxiety to the result of his attack, hoping, earnestly praying for his early recovery. Still they sutler, and still the heart is rent with woe. But yet the nobuity of the land works and labors In the great cause of suffering hu manity. Captain James Cleary, of the fire depart ment, has been bled to the core ot his heart by the loss of two children; and yet be stoutly stands, with shrunken heart, but head erect, to serve the poor and and destitute, as cf yore he stood on the battle- rounds oi norm ueorgia. may uoa oiess Jim ileiry. Tom Taylor, a colored man, who has made himself conspicuous as a religious enthusiast. w.ts arrested a lew aays ago ior aisorueny conduct, but nothing could be made out of his case, and he was discharged. The poor old man seemed to get It into his head mat ne naa oeen arrestea ior two mucn praying, and as soon as discharged he began a tirade of abuse and cursing Jesus Christ, for which he was again arrested and imprisoned on a warrant for lunacy. We publish elsewhere a list of the vol unteer physicians that have been on duty with the Howard medtcal board since me organization of that most effictent department. The list embraces those who have died, are now sick, and those on duty. It Is an Interesting paper, kindly furnished us by Colonel w. s. neKeii, secretary oi tne iiowara medical boaid, who has shown himself In all par ticulars most obliging and thoroughly sociable. His final report will 1) one ot the most Interesting docu ments of the epidemic. The crackinjr of small arms in the vicin ity of Madison and Second streets, at an early hour last nlgnt, created cocsiaeraoie excitement, ana drew together a crowd of three or four curious peo ple. It proved to be from Louis Ponlta's little pis tol, who was trying to overhaul a couple of negroes whom he caugnt trying to steal some sneep meat from his butcher shop at the comer of Madison and Third streets. The neeroe ) got away, but Louis went to the statlonhouse to answer to me charge of shoot ing in the corporate limits. E. E. Furbish died last evening, at the Peabody. He was formerly In the employ of B. Low- ensteln & Co.. but has recently officiated In a cler ical capacity at the Howard association neaduuar ters. He had been ailing for several days, but re fused to acknowledge tne presence or tne prevailing fever. On jesterday morning, while walking In the hall of the hotel, he fainted and fell prostrate to the floor. He was conveyed to his room and meas ures undertaken to produce a reaction, wnuoui avail. however, for he steadily sank and finally died as stated. His family are absent In Louisville, and have been communicated wltn. Among the heroesof this epidemic whose names will go down to posterity with honors, none are mom deservlns than Captain Henry B. Fontaine. who has stood like a stone wall In the office of the treasurer of the Citizens' relief committee. Nearly all his comrades have fallen sick about him: some have paid the last debt of nature; others have re covered, but Captain Fontaine has stood like a hero. closely scrutinizing 'ana iaitnruiiy perioriiuug u duties or that office. Through his diligence and courage alone has the Intricate business of that re sponsible position been iaimiuiiy kept. There are a couple of laree trunks at the statlonhouse evidently packed with valuRbles, about whirh t,hrin will develon an interesting nisiory at tne trial of the drayman Monday morning, In whose possession they were aiscovereu. iuo urayuittn s umrv la that. th ladv who owned the trunks died leaving express orders that they be burned; but he thought he would take t he chances of keeping the trunks rather than burn them. Others say thai the lsuii Mm i his drnrman money to pay her funeral ex pense.-, but he converted It to his own use, stole the trunks, and Invented the burning story to cover his meanness.

Besides these, n t a case has been In our county, unless Mrs. Parker, who came from Grenada, to her slater's, four miles south of this nlnce. bad It: but It la doubtful.

He was stricken with tbe fever several weeks ago. and iumi ihmioii tho irt stages under most favorable circumstances, without nurse or pnysicau. ae would not have them.

No doubt my attention has been raised by the repeated affirmations of the excellency of Mrs. Carl BockiDg's remedy, and it is with a desire to thoroughly lnvesti oai tha siibiect that I yesterday pent Mr. Bougarel, my auxiliary, to Mrs. Bocking s room, in the Peabody hotel, with a letter, which did approximately run as follows: Mkmpbis, September 26, 1878.

Reed, druggist, of St. Louis, eldest son of Irvln Reed, is now In Memphis, rendering valua ble assistance in caring ior yenow-iever sunrera under the direction of the Howard association of that place. Mr. Reed was a druggist in New Orleans six years, during which time there were several visi tations irom yellow-fever, consequently understands the nature of the disease and Its proper treatment. When the call for help was made by the Howard as sociation of Memphis, he felt It his duty to leave his imslnesn and home and g.ve the sufferers the bene fit of his experience. His father received a postal card from him last evening, announcing that he was having marked success In his tieatment of the dis ease. He says the newspapers convey but a slight Idea of the suffering and distress prevailing in Mem phis. "Death" literally "rides on every passing breeze." We will add to the above that since A. F. Reed has been with us for the past month, he has made himself generally useful aa physician, nurse and visitor; and many peo ple, white and black, rich and poor, in the neighborhood of the Brinkley place are in debted to him for valuable assistance in the nick of time.
