moro healthy communities. On Tuesday it was
announced that -

Clay street, In tho Boutlicrn part of tbe city.
Yesterday they began to bo talked about aa
suspicious cases. Tbo Board of Health was
notified, and Dr. Sanders, Acting-President,
went last nlgbt to personally diagnose the
cases, and, at a late hour, ho reported that
nothing definite could be said, but by noon to
day developments would enable him to make
official definite roporte. The result Is the fire

Dr; Sandora Is still confident that these cases, os

announcement'cf these as suspicious cases yes

were rumored. Prompt visits by tbo Health

they must stay there until it closes. The peo

whenever they please, drive out through tho
country, and altogether have a very pleasant

the Lazaretto spread through Chester City like

1 alarmed, for, os one of the men at tho Lozaretto
soy#, whoso family all had the disease some
years ago, “Yellow-fever is nothing to olar
with." The peoplo ol Chester have for some
years past talked of petitioning the Legislature
to move the quarantine further down the river,
say to Port Delaware. The Shasta, the brlgnow
in quarantine, was bound for Chester from

vessels arrive here almost dally, there Is con

Washington, D. C., July 17.— Wilson, the
Union soldier who has lost both legs, who bos
recently been removed from the employ of the
Senate, was removed by
Bright, and nob b/ Durcb, Secretary of the
Senate. Wilson was not within the jurisdiction
of the latter officer. Wilson’s friends hero
say that the excuse which Bright telctrrapQcd
from Indiana yesterday, ns to his removal, is a
)muo one. They assert that Wilson has always
proved himself an efficient and obliging officer,
mid'the fact that he Is legless added to his
efficiency as the Doorkeeper, because his phys
ical disability made It painfully Inconvenient for
him to move about, and In consequence he was
alvravs found at his post of duty. Those who
