To ths Kilters of the Appeal i Gkntlkmkn -in reference to the cause of the proHered resignation ot Mr. John Johnson from the Tennessee State board of health. I find In the Asso ciated Pres dispatches the following statement: "Ii Is Intimated that It was brought about by a quarrel between doctors, possibly by Dr. Cochrane's assumptions, in which some undeserved lehecUon was cast upon him." It is utterly untrue that there was any disagree ment of any sort between Mr. JobDson and myel. Ou the contrary, be stood sboulder to should' r with me In everything that I attempted to do la Memphis; and when I lear ed that be bad forwarded his reslg nation. I promptiy telegraphed to Dr. Plunkttt to tbe following effect "Mr. Johnson's resignation must not be accepted. He is by far the most useful man in Memphl ." Ana I added to this a statement that made tbe subseq, .ent accommodation possible, but which it Is not proper to reDroduoe now. It Is strange that my plans for the management of toe epiaem.c in juempms nave rieen visited witn such sharp criticism of myself and mr motives. when every measure proposed by me has been In dorsed by every oOlclal body and personage that had anything to do In the premises, namelv: 1. By Mr JohDoa, as the Memphis represt nta tlve of the State bo ird ot health. 2. By Dr. Thornton, as the president ot the Mem- pmsDoiraoi neann. 8. By Dr. Porter, as president of the Taxing-Dis trict, a position corresponding to that of mayor In oiuer ciues. 4. By Mr. Langtaff, president of the Howards. 5. By a meeting of prominent citizens. 0.

By tbe National board of health In the dispatch ui w. .oiiiui&s, ami in tue m A.enzie conieret.ee. The papers Indeed are strangely full of miscon ceptions and misstatement, of which I will mention one more instance. In tbe special to the St Louis Gloiie-lMmocral republished by you in jour paper oi iae eigoieenin, occurs tne following: "In reaard to matters in the eltr.

Because there Is uct a panicle ot truth. in it. aosurd, because a house cannot be thoroughly OlMuftc'.ed while the sick Datieut Is sUll In it And false, because no such visitations were made by dls- miecung squaus to tne miected nouses much less to adjoining buildings. As I have already stated, no uipiiiieciKju ul anjr kiiiu was attempted except in houses where the sickness resulted in death; and these attempted disinfections have been formally reported to Dr. Mitchell by one of the medical in spectors on amy in Memphis under bis orders, as having been done In such wav as to havo hmn nf nn value.

This leaves one officer on the river, and one on each road, except the Short-line, where no one is no, required.

This evening he telegraphed home that his worst fears bad been realized, as the body ot bis unfor tunate brother bad been found In tbe woods, where na nan commuted suicide by shootmg nimseit through the bead.
