PrrrsBfRoii seems to bo a little disgusted
with the rowing business. Possibly
her ill luck in getting her oarsmen near
the front in recent regattas has sharpened
her moral sense on the subject. Anyhow
the TtUgraph thinks rowing is fast going
the way of base ball.
The suspicions that the gamblers plan
the results and select the winners has
liken such a strong hold upon the public
mind that the interest in this so-called
sport is rapidly decreasing. Hence the
pmall attendance at the regatta yesterday.
The plea for the oarsmen that thev cannot
help betting on the result is well "enough,
if that were all; but thev, and they alone,
are responsible for the belief that has now
become universal, that these affairs are
generally managed wholly in the interest
of the gamblers.
In the Intelligencer of Thursday of
last week was a letter written from this
place slandering several parties in town,
the writer stating what he knew was not
true. A demand was mado upon A. W.
Campbell for the name of the author,
whicn was refused. The parties interested
will now take legal process against the
Intelligencer, and endeavor to show Mr.
Campbell that he does not own the pubtic
and private character of our people.?
Ckrbburg Telegram.
The letter referred to in the above, received
in Mr. Campbell's absonce, was
furnished by a responsible citizen ol
Clarksburg, and had reference to the alleged
short-comings of public officials ol
that town. It was entitled to a place in
the Intelligencer, and it got it.
As to the balance of the Telegram'* article,
we believe its editor labors under the
impression that he has a quarrel with Mr.
Campbell, of this paper, for the reason
that the latter declined to assist him in
some receut efforts to capture the Claiksburg
postotllce. What his reasons for such
declination were we are not apprised, but,
in his absence, we feel called upon to say
now,that his action in that particular, manifested
rattling discrimination and massivo
judgment.
Dispatches of yesterday announce the
sale of the White Sulphur Springs property
to Capt. Alex. T. Mathews, of Greenbrier
county, this State, for the sum ol
$300,000. This is a considerable reduction
from the $1,000,000 which Jim Fisk is said
to have offered for it at tho close of the
war, but.it is probable the court will confirm
the sale now made. There has been
considerable litigation attending the ef
f'irtg of thn oroditora to secure their
chvinxs, ami the case has given rise to t
goo.1 deal of scandal and unpleasant dis
cussion. As we nnderstand it, the com
pany formerly owning the property en
cumbered it with various classes of liens
giving to several classes of creditors pre
ferred claims over others. oWhen all ob
ligations had matured and were not mot
it was found that tho property could noi
In) sold for enough to pay its debts
and a contest began among those
who held prior claims likely t<
bo provided for in any sale, and those win
were likely to bo left out in tho cold. Thi
sort of thing has being going on for sever
al years with injunctions, petitions, Ac.
and the Commissioners were finally order
ed to make a detlnite sale at the bestprici
obtainable, either selling in*parcels or as i
whole. It appears from the dispatchei
that the property was oflerod both wayi
aud tlnaily knocked down eutiro at tlv
figures named.
While the amount nppoars inconsider
able in comparison with prices heretofori
offered for it, it is likely, as things now go
that full value has been gotten. Taste
vary from year to year in tho matter of sc
lecting summer reports, and while thi
one will always have a particular patron
ag6, it has no better guarantee than othei
of successful seasons.

8 day were opened with prayor by I to v. J).
II. K. Dix, of the M. E. church. The
^ first exercise was a very interesting class
" drill in reading, which was followed by
equally interesting class drills In English
s grammar, natural philosophy, history,
algebra and arithmetic, all conducted by
Prof. Hervey. Prof. Little, of whom I
have before* spoken in a previous article,
' gave oue ol his interesting lessons iu in*
j dustrial drawing. The Professor leaves

Marshall County Institute, where we
trust ho will be well received. The Pro1

To-morrow, the 8th, will close the Insti*
tute. Professor Ilorvey has worked untiringly
to accomplish the greatest amount
, of good possible during the five days, and
I am sure many of the teachers will find
' that the week has not been spent in vain

M.
August 9th, 1879.
The session of tho Ohio County Teachera'
Institute, held at this place, closed
1 yesterday. The exercises of the day wero
interesting as usual, perhaps more so, as
besides the usual class drills, a very interesting
and instructive lecture was given
by Prof. Hervey, on the art of teaching
and school government. Short remarks
were made by others present (serious and
otherwise) and closed by singing some of
the gospel hymns, in which all joined
, heartily. A decidc.1 interest was manifested
by the teachers present throughout
tho entire session. Many were sorry that
the session did not continue longer. Besides
the benefit to be derived from the
regular exercises of the inHtitute, the bene,
fitsofsocial intercourse with intelligent
men and women of the same profession
were not small, and I presume many go
away cheered and strengthened to begin
the arduous labors of another school year.
The thanks of the teachers who were
J>resent are certainly due to Prof, llervev I
or the ability and tact with which he conducted
the exercises, as well as for tho un-j
varyingpleasantness and courtesy forwbich
the Frofessor is so distinguished. The entire
enrollment for the whole time was
forty-two. The average daily attendance
between twenty-live and twenty-six.
Many of our resident teachers were not
? resent, some unavoidably detained away, I
presume, and some, because there was
do compulsion in the case, and because |
they had not interest enough in their pro-!
fession to attend voluntarily. The loss is
, their own.
There is a good deal of anxiety among!
teachers, as to the probability of obtainiug
schools for the coming year. Petitions
i are being circulated in different quarters, I
, by different teachers, or their friends. I
: do not think those are safe guides, and
may not always express the real wish of j
the people. I imagine the duty of the dif,
ferent Boards of Education will bo to
weigh well the qualifications and renuta,
tions of the different applicants anu do
what they believe for the best interests of
the schools. In no cast, when a teacher
has labored faithfully and successfully,
should there be a change made, unless
the former teacher is not an applicant
But oxcuse me for running this letter to
such a length. Yours truly, M.

Memi'his, August 9.?Up to noon to-day
fifteen cases, ten white and five colored,
have been reported to the Board of Health.
Among the number are Mrs. M. A. Taylor
and daughter, and Rev. J. H. Ridley (col
ored). Three deaths have occurred since
last night: Mrs. Absolora Boyd, Mrs.
Francis Getz, and Lizzie Getzell.
The weather continues cool. This morning
at daylight the thermometer dropped
to 04?. It is now 75?. Kd. Moon is considered
out of danger.
Six more cases were reported to the
Hoard of Health this afternoon, all of
whom were colored. In addition, eighteen
cases were reported after the usual hour
for closing, which will be included in tomorrow's
list. Two deaths have occurred
since noon, KdwardTabler and L. Itoberts,
both at the city hospital.
Following is the otlicial announcement
of the Board of Health, declaring yellow
fever epidemic:
The Board of Health, being informed
that there is a disposition manifested on
the part of some absentees from Memphis
to return sooner than it would be advisable,
and as this disposition may be increased,
it deems best to submit tho following
statement in regard to the prevalence and
spread of yellow fever in this city.
Though the death rate up to August 2d,
the date of the last regular weekly report,
exceeded deaths from all other causes by
a few, and being less than that of the week
previous, the Board of Health was encouraged
to believe that it would not exceed
this numbeffor any week during the
prevalence of tho disease, and as no practical
good was thought would result from
tho formal announcement of epidemic, it
declined to make such an announcement
at the time. To August 2d, it prevailed
mostly m the neighborhood where the
first cases occurred in July, in the southern
portion of the city, in the Fifth and in
a portion of the Seventh and Tenth Wards,
and in the northwestern portion of the
city, in the Eighth Ward, and could not
bo considered epidemic bevond those
limits, where it was hoped to be confined,
and cases have been reported and deaths
occurred in so many different localities of
the city that it is now impossible to say
what portion is not infected. Therefore
the Board of Health makes formal declaration
of a general epidemic. The death rate
is small in proportion to the number of
cases reported, and there are good reasons
to hope that it will not exceed, if it again
leuulico lliu pieaful VQOk a luutlality UUl"
the prevalence of the disease.
These reasons are that somo escape in
every epidemic, not being liable to disease,
from what cause wo do not know. Many
of those who remain are protected by a
previous attack, and it is reasonable to assume
that many who contract the disease
will recover. A large portion of our population
who are liable to the diseaso have
left the city, and tho work of depopulation
is atili in progress, which should be,
and no doubt will be continued, unless
free subsistence is supplied in the city,
which would not only have the effect to
prevent some from going into camns
where such provision is made, but would
induce others to como into the city, thereby
become tho means of spreading disease
to localities now freo from infection. Therefore,
in view of these facts, we aro iuduced
to believe, although the disease is liable
to bo here until after frost, that the rate of
uiuriumy wm iiuv extueu, u u eijuaia iuj
firesont number for any one week in the
mure. Every practicable means of disinfection
and local sanitation calculated
to arrest the disease has been and is still
being practiced. In this work the Board
of Health has tho active co-operation of
both the National and Stato Boards of
Health-through their respective representatives,
Dr. K. W. Mitchell, of the former,
and Hon. John Johnson, of the latter.
The following is the number of deaths
from yellow fever aiuco its appearance, as
reported to this office:

At a meeting of prominent citizens, heli
this afternoon, )>r. Jerome Cochrane, rep
resentative of the National Board o
Health, submitted a letter which hai
been written to Dr. 8. J. Turner, Secre
tary ot the >ational Board, in which h
a recommends: First, that the work of re
e moving the unaccllmated population b
, continued until no (uel is left here to fe?
, the epidemic; second, the removal ol th

) pntside the city limits; third, the isolatioi
o as far w possible, of injected persons an
it places within the plty-i fourth, the disli
taction, as far M oar erliting knowledj
mikes it possible. of infected clotliinj
bedding and dwellings.
The letter urges the National Board I
i at least mako an effort, and exhaust ever
possible device to check the spread of th
pestilence further. It says:
"The Board is on trial before the bar <
public opinion, and has already beconi
& an object of assault for the public press,
appeal to tho National Board of Health,th
legal guardian of the country's welfare
and think the Board would act wisely t

N*w Orleans, August 9.?A careful sui

not only the city of New Orleans and it

with the single exception of Memphis, wa
very rarely at this season of tho year in t
healthier condition. Dr. Uemiss, of tin
National Board of Health, whose instrtic
tions to all sanitary inspectors under hi
jurisdiction aro to notify him at once o
any outbreak of yellow fever, has heari
i nothing from them for several days, am
, is satisfied from this that neither on tin
line of the Mobile road nor on the Chica
go, St. Louis and New Orleans has then
been a solitary case of yellow fever. Ir
this city there has not been a case for thir
teen days. Should the interval extend t<
twenty-one days, in the opinion of physi
cians it will dissipato the slightest apnre
hension of any spread of the disease. Tin
issuance of healtli certificates is restricted
to sanitary* inspectors appointed by tht
National Board. One of these inspector!
visits and inspects every train and steamer
leaving, and Is instructed by Dr. Bemisi
to furnish gratuitously to all passengers ic
good health certificates to that effect
These certificates are strictly personal, and

Chicago, August 9.?In answer to a telegraphic
request of the Daily AYw* of this
city, A. I). LangstatF, President of the
Howard Association at Memphis, has sent
a telegram giving particulars of the condition
of that city, containing the following
points:
I he total number of cases of yellow
fever to this hour within the city limits,
officially recorded, is 330. Of this number
IK) died. In addition, there have been
about 20 cases and 5 deaths of Memphis
refugees located within six miles of the
city. The disease lias not communicated
to any of the stirroundiug towns, on account
of the rigid quarantine. The lever
has increased in Memphis very perceptibly
in the past ten days, and is spreading
from its original centres. We cannot hope
for a discontinuance until frost.
At least 30,000 persons have left, o?
which 12,000 ate located in Camps Path"
Matbew and Marks, situated four ai?
seven miles respectively from Memphis.
There have been three cases in Camp
Marks and one death. There are at least
12,000 negroe3 in this city, only 100 having
gone to camp. They have declined to
leave the citv. lioninc to rocuiva rntinna
here, which is in opposition to all views of
parties who are laboring hero to attend to
such as may be taken sick.
Our only safety is depopulation. In
consequence of the feverspreading among
the negroes for the past live days, there is
a growing disposition to go to the camps.
.Should their appeal to the people of the
United States lor rations not meet with a
favorable answer the negroes will no
doubfmove as soon as they get hungry.
No 0110 but a Howard visitor or physician
knows of tho filthy hovels that these people
live in, and in which they are taken
sick and too frequently do. Wo have six
physicians on uutv, and have had under
our charge -150 patients, sick with various
diseases. To these sick people wo furnish
nurses, medicines, stimulants and
food. About 200 have been discharged.
Our oxnenweq aro now $500 per dav. and
will probably increase. Wo have on hand
$18,000. Tho amount would have been
sufficient if the negroes had followed the
example of the white people and loft the
city. Wo hoped not to be forced to ask
assistance, but fear this non-action of the
negroes will compel us to do so. The
sanitary condition of our city is excellent.

"Your advico in the Associated Press di*

and this it has done. When more meane
are needed by tne State Board it will, nc

PitoviDEXCE, U. I., August 0.?A scandal
in which the names of Senators Conkling
and Spraguo were freely used, was circulated
through the city to-day, as well as at
XarragauBctt Tier and vicinity. It was
rumored that the .Senators had engaged
in a bitter quarrel, resulting in the uso of
a shot-Bun bv Senator Snratmo. who was
. enraged by reason of bis belief that Conkling
and Mrs. Sprague had been intimate.
I Careful inquiry and investigation has
, exploded the malicious rumor, at least ed
far as Senator Conkling is concerned, who
unfortunately happened to be the guest of
.Senator Sprague. It appears that Senator
Sprague, maddened by jealous goadingsas
' to the imagined intimacy of the German
instructor of his children?Prof. Lineke,
. of Now York?with his fascinating wife,
confronted him in the house and ordered
him to leave instantly, emphasizing his
, threat by tho pointing of a loaded shotgun.
Lincke retreated, and Senator Conkling,
who had been attracted to the room
' by the screams of the lady guests, sought to
calm the enraged Senator, assisted by other
friends. Conkling's presence at the house
was occasioned bv tho settling of legal
business connected with tho suit to recover
taxes on tho estate of Mrs. Sprague, in R
Urchinm.:?f 7
Justice Chase, in whicfi Senator Conkling
was employed as her counsel,and won the a
case. Unfortunately for the .Senator and s
his fair client, gossip has not scrupled to p
accuse them of very friendly relations,and y
the natural supposition was that the diffi- t|
culty at tho 1'ier arose from this matter, o
but the Senators are on the best of terms, J
so far as is known. Senator Conkling left t[
for New York to-night. ,

Pimucaan, August t>.?The final am
great day of the tingle aculleia' regatta 01
tlie Hulton course was in all respect* i
success, anil terminated what was probabl;
one of the finest exhibitions ever witness
ed on Western waters. Tin air waa coo
and bracing and the course was In magnltt
cent condition. The pools were lively al
day long, although they had been light li
the previous forenoon. In the profession
al sale, Biley, who had the call last night
was a big favorite to-day, Fronchy John<
son selling for second choice. The aver
ago pools wore about $15 for Riley, $8 foi
Johnson and 15 for the Held.
Uy four o'clock, the hour set for the
start of the amateur race, it is estimated
that fully ten thousand people lined the
two shores of the Alleghany at and about
Hulton. There were, of course, the usual
accompanying scenes and incidents. (Jamblera's
lay-outs of all kinds, from the seductive
and gaudily painted wheel of fortuno
to the primitive chuck-aluck, turned
uii at every corner, and their owners
plied a lively trade with the innocents. It
was five o'clock beforo the amateurs were
called out In drawing for position they
were assigned places aa follows: No. 1,
Brennan: No. 12, Babbitt, No. !l, Morris;
No. 4, Handy?the first jmsitiun being
nearest the south shore.
At 5:10 o'clock the word "Go!" waa
liven, and, after souie trouble In getting
nto position, thev all got oil" well together.
Uronnon took tlio lead at the start, but
Uorris put on full steam, and at the boatloufio
led the race, with Handy close belinil.
Babbitt worked vigorously, but
villi the evident intention of staying. At
lie buoy Brennan had again raptured the
cad, and Babbitt had come up to second
ilaco. They turned with Brennan about
hrce-fourtlis of a longb in advance. Alnostimmediately
after gettingaround the
juoy, Bronnan ceased rowing and his
icaa (ell forward, while the otlTera in suction
went to tbo fore. On the return
Babbitt was in tho lead, with Morris some
listance behind, while the other two were
lardly in the raco. At Hulton Lane Morris
seemed to be laboring hard, while Hahjitt
was rowing with a full, steady stroke,
ind passed thestako-boat fully livolengths
ihead. Morris came in second, and Ilanly
third, thus respectively winning the
lire? prizes of $100, $75 and $25. Time,
4:21.
As for Brennan, the game Southsider
vho failed to show up at the end, ho hud
'ainted in his boat from a sudden attack
if sickness. A horseman who followed
be contestants rodo out through tho shalow
water to his assistance and took him
o shore, lie soon recovered sufficiently
o assure his friends that he was in no
langer.
Meantime tho starting point for the proessional
was moved up about the paper
iiill, and while the amateurs were on the
lorae stretch the contestants for tho race
if the day were moving up the river, in
irder that tho least po;sible delay might
le experienced. When the amateurs cr ue
n sight it was discovered that but four of
he professionals wero in readiness. People
began to wonder what was the matter,
rtien Fred Plaisted shot out in his handoine
paper shell from Eph Morris* boatlouse,
tnrec-quartors o? a tnile away, puling
a heavy stroke,thus doing double duty,

jari, dark and tanned so that he might
aaily have passed for a mulatto, pulled
long, hugging the shore and almost touchng
the bushes, ho received such words
f encouragement as "Go in, Frenchy;
ou want to whip him, you black beauator,"
and the like. ttiley maintained the
jad he had got throughout. He turned
ho buoy with at least two boat lengths of
lear daylight between him and Keunedy,
nd at the finish without the least trouble
y two lengths. The race on the return,
owever, for second place, between Keniedy,
the little giant of Pawtucket, and
do, the dark-skinned Newark man, was
ne of the prettiest contests ever witnessd.
All the way down tho mile and a half

Correspondence of the Intelligencer.
Moruantown, August Oth, 1879.
Just one week ago to-day I wrote you
an account of tho closing of my work at
Kingwood, and of my arrival at tho
"Athens," but could say but little concerning
cither tho place or people, from
tho fact that I had enjoyed no opportunity
of judging of either; but now after
a sojourn of a week amid the culture and
tho refinement of which the good citizens
of Morgantown boast so much, I am prepared
to sav that a very pleasant and 1
trust profitable week has been spent The
Institute has been a grand success from
first to last.
Tho teachers of Monongalia are fully
abreast of the times, and aro both anxious
and willing to improve themselves in everything
that pertains to perfecting themselves
for their labors. One hundred and
eleven teachers were enrolled. But vory
few of the teachers of tho county were absent,
and the best part is, that the members
were present all the time. I am under
obligations to County Superintendent A.
L. Wade, Prof. D. B. Purinton, Prof. Morgan
of the Morgantown Graded School,
Capt. B. S. Keenan, County Superintendent
elect, aud others, for valuable assistance
rendered. Revs. Snodgrass, Lowther
and Marsh gave interesting talks at the
evening sessions, as also did Prof. Purlnton
of the Marshall College Normal School.
Ex-United States Sonator W. T. Willey
gave a very interesting address to the
teachers on Thursday. It was spoken
with iiiur.h of tho fervor and eloquence fer
which the speaker is famous, and; was
loudly applauded.
This closes my institute work. Daring
the three weeks 1 have had the honor and
the pleasure of f? > ><?
115 at Fairmont, 40 at Kingwood and 111
at Morgantown. What county or Bet of
counties will show a better record?
My stay here has been extremely pleasant.
1 find the city much improved since
my last visit in June, 1872. Main street >
has now all theappcarance of a city, while
tho line private residences all around tho
suburbs, add much to the beauty of the
place.
On yesterday hfternoon the members of
tho institute visited tho University buildings
jn a body. Professors Purinton and
Lyon did all in their power to make the visit
pleasant and profitable. The buildings
are very fine, especially the one lately
I erected, ami my impression is that West
| Virginia boys can do no better than to attend
our own West Virginia University.
President Thompson left yesterday fur
I Chttutaqua, forZthe benefit of Jliis health.
I lie was not able to be present at any of
1 tho sessions of the institute. This was rr
I gretted by nil, and by none more than the
I President himself.
I Tho Morgantown Female Seminary, unI
der the charge ol Airs. J. It. Moore, has an
euviahlc reputation and young ladies can
(here have the privilege of receiving a
| thorough education. The young people of
Morgantown and vicinity are surely blesscd
with good facilities "educationally, in
short, all that could ho asked, were tho
I doois of the University open to ladies as
i well as gentlemen.
1 Prof. T, C. Miller, of Fnirmount, has
been with us a goodly part of tho week.
That old veteran in the service, Albert
G. Davis, was present at every session of
the Institute, and took an active part in
the proceedings.
It was my privilege and pleasure to form
we acquaintance of Prof; Cox, long the
leading educator, perhaps, in Monongalia
county. Ho has retired from actual educational
work at present, and is passing
his time pleasantly at his beautiful country
residence near town. As a proof that
his heart is still in the work, ho was present
at nearly all the sessions of the Institute.
lie is a ploasant gentleman and a
fine scholar.
But 1 had almost forgotten to mention
Hon. J. M. Hagans, ex-member of Congress
and preient member of the House
of Delegate*. He is nourishing finely, and
was busily engaged during the week with
business pertaining to the County Court,
which institution was holding its levy
term.
This County Court system, bad aa it is,
must havu a strong hold upon the affecI
lions of the noonln of Wmi Vt*?twU ??
we just now hoar that Marshall, Wetzel
and Marion have refused to change it, an
has also the county of Preston. How do
tlione legislators now feel who labored ho
hard for the passage of the bills? Man in
a strange creature when he comes to the
polls to vote. 1
The crop and fruit prospect is most
excellent in Monongalia county, especially
will the corn crop bo good. "
I have tarried all week at the Wallav
Uoufe, and my verd:c; is, that our city
hotels wonlddo well to copy after it. ^
