The doctors still maintain that the disease is of a mild type of yellow fever, while others contend it is something else. Dr. riliuou, an old resi dent physician of thirty-five years* standing, says he has some live or six patients under treoemeut, but ho docs not discover any yellow fever in the sickness, which would he reported by other doctors as yellow (ever. Gen. Bmith, connected with Um Howards, says ho has neighbors within two blocks of his residence who are sick, and ho cannot detect in ail of them yellow (over, although ho believes TIIBUB IS YELLOW FUVfcll in the city, lie especially declares that tho Wchrum family has not yellow fever, and, when oiked bow be could account for oil the family being taken sick at once, he said It was natural for uuy bodv of persons to bccume sick at once with bilious or malarial fever, or other disease, wheu their systems wore lull of local poison. Tlic General mentioned other cairs within his knowledge that had not yet been reported, and said, although they were very sick on the Urst attack, they are walking about lu their yards or uu Die streets to-day. Which proves that they could not have hud yellow fever, (or that disease dued uo( relax lu hold so cosy as to allow pa' TUESDAY. JULY 23, I87S)-TWELVE PAGES. Gents lo move around Insldo of Are days. The General also said Urn Howard* trill bold no meet ing, NOli OIIOAN'IZR ron ANT PURPOSE, until the situation Is such that tint Howards must bo brought Into the ilcld. The City Gov* ernmont Id the meantime trill do all in Its power with Urn means it possesses to assist nf llletcd humanity, or, at least, those unable lo belt) themselves. The General was very sanguine we would have no epidemic compared as with last year, and such Is the feeling entertained by our most prominent physicians. Dr. Colllus says, good-humoredly, no expects to leave la about thirty days for soma outer (>oiut, because there will bo nothing to do. When asked If THIRTY-SIX CASES like those of to-day could occur, why was It ho could not Had something to do, he answered Uiat the disease in thirty days would be checked as suddenly as it began, and that no material would b« left for it to feed upon. Messrs. Menken Bros., prominent dry-goods merchants; Kremcr, Herzog* Co.; ?. S. Hop kins, leading milliners; Byrd & Co., Jewelers; Loweniteln Bros, and Johnston & Vance, clothiers, have nailed up and left the city for other points.

Capt. George IT. Mitchell, of the United States Service, Is in the city, the service having been discontinued between here ami Vicksburg, lie Is left outln the cold for the time being. Among the incidents occurring In the panic of to-day are those of a prominent lawyer who had heretofore declared himself not afraid of Bronze John, nor in believing there was a ease at present in the city. To day he was going to the depot In a hurried banner, and was accosted by a friend: “HELLO, judge, who’rc you going!” “To Louisville,” was the reply. “Why, 1 thought you wasn’t afraid of the fever,” says the Interrogator. “Well, I’m not, by G—<ll I don’t believe there Is a case. Yet lam d—<l badly demoral ized, uml I am going to Louisville to rally. Will bo back In ton days. Good-by.” Hut the Judge will not bo back for three months. The other Is that of a poor old colored woman who had been standing In front of her late resi dence over since Sunday evening, her trunk on the steps, awaiting some vehicle to pass by and carry her off. TIME AFTER TIME she balled dray-earl, express-wagon, and In every Instance was answered, “Go to II 1 Carry Uoa your shoulders. Too much money among white folks to fool with niggers,” The Evenmg llera'd suspeuded Its issue to-day, and ISSUED A SMALL EXTRA, In which It soya: “The sudden suspension of business on the part of the Southern Newspa per Union, a printing establishment with which wo had contracted to do the press-work for the tuning forces us cither to purchase, under the existing unsettled condition of af fairs, a steam engine and presses with which to do our own press-work, or else to suspend the publication of the Evening llera'd until such time as wb can resume Its publication with both pleasure and profit. Wo hive decided u|tou the latter course.” The JCvtnintf reduced Its size to a half sheet, mm has only six printers at work. All the papers have suspended their carriers' routes till further notice.

His collln had been ordered of the undertaker. The refugees from Memphis and the neigh boring yellow-fever district began to arrive in full force last evening. The evening train on the Illinois Central Railroad, which was about two hours late, brought many in this city, and raaur more were dropped at places along the line. A largo party secured .quarters ut the Palmer House, ladles and children preponder ating. Most of those who arrived last evening were too tired to submit to the interviewing process to any great extent, but, from general conversations: «h a number, it was learned that hmj telegraphic dispatches have not In any wav exaggerated the condition of affairs lu the stricken city, but that, on tin* contrary," there are nil tho indica tions of a scene of panic fully equal to that of last summer. The refugees are exceedingly un smntltlc In their discourses on the reasons for the recurrence of the fever, but simply say that It was there ami they thought It tune to take their summer vacations. The advance guard of the refugees us being the llm to leave are naturally the most gloomy In their predictions for the future, but claim, however, that the exodus will be universal, and Umt all Uic inhabitants of Memphis realize the fact that it is death to remain. Those seen lait nltrnt say Umt the sanitary regulations tire being well enforced and that Uio inspection u severe; but lu spite of all tills the disease Is to Die manner born, and so long ns material icmaius yellow fever will flourish. At,tho lime these parties left Memphis the disease had uot assumed such a pronounced form as au epidemic as it did Yesterday and the day before. Tliov report, however, that ult the popula tion who cau alTonl It arc preparing to move. Business bouses arc being ciosjd. and, as one of Uio party expressed it, “It does mo good to see a whole newspaper.” Many will spend tho summer hero In Chicago, and others will wander off to the various coo! places of the North, fullv resolved not to return to Memphis until the frost comes.. It Is n lung exile, but better than the block-vomit. Among the arrivals, from Memphis at Uio Palmer ore James 8. Wilkins, Judge T. J. Latham, 6. Montgomery, W. 1). Beard and fain ; lly, Mrs. Julia M. Dovlu, Mrs. Montgomery, Mrs. it. Simpson and family, J. T. Frost, J. F. Peters, Miss MeCauly, Miss Kerr, .Mrs. Wilcox, Mrs. Bartholomew and family, and Mrs. Allen and family.

T,-ui*ellle V'iurt*r*Jourmit, Juiu’i l. On the 3:25 train which arrived ut the Nash ville Depot, LoulbtllW,’ about 10 o’clock last night, was Col. J. A. h orrent, of Memphis, who took rooms nt Alexander’s Hotel. Hero u Courier-Journal reporter found him last night at 11 o’clock, and questioned him In regard to that all-abmrblng topic, the yellow lover lu Memphis. Reporter—How many refugees were on the troln with you! , , , Col. Forrest—'There were probably a hundred booked for this placu and a hundred for Cincin nati. Many people were waiting around the depot when we iuU, evidently ready for flight. Reporter—How mouy eases do you think there arc In the city! Col. F.—Dr. Saunders told, mo that bo alone had twenty eases, few of which, however, have resulted in death. The chief undertaker In Memphis told mo a few days ago that he had so few orders Umt he thought it must he u scare. Since then he has taken tiie measure for four fever victims. 1 think it would be safe to say Umt Uicro are 100 eases In Memphis. H.—ls the sanitary condition ol the city good or bad I Col. F.—The sanitary condition Is (rood. The city nutlioritlcfl, under die energetic leadership ot Dr. I'orter, have done all that could possibly be done. To nil appearances, tho city is iu ex cellent condition. It—How ore the people olt for food? Col. F.—l'licro are nut provisions enough in town to last over a week, as they have been or dered out by the planters. There is more need of food than money. It—The pcu.ilu arc really panic-stricken t Col. F.—'There Is u terrible panic. Poorer people arc begging help and trying to get out of town on wagons, curls, aiai even on foot Their ease is really pitiable. 1 think that in a day or two the lover will be declared epidemic in Mem phis. Thu outbreak means destruction to Mem phis and her commerce, as well as a serious blow at Southern trade. H.—Do the colored people sharo tho general fright? Col. K.—So far there has not been to my knowledge a single case among them. They do not fear 11 at all. i.ast year about ouu negro died to every live whites. IC—Dues tho fever seek filthy localities? Cot. F.— Strange to nay, it has not. It has at tacked the best citizens. There are in the city many laborers, with their families, who occupy IHthy hovels and tenement houses, and who have hoes and goats around them to Increase their filth. These hove not been touched. Thu houses ot the better citizens have been entered without mercy. Judge Hay, who fell a victim, lived In u nice, clean home, which you would have thought would havu been tho lust place fur the fever to obtain a foothold. Qua would sup pose that tile foul places would bo thu most fatal, but It Is not so. U.—ls Uui fever confined to one locality) Col. K.—lt is nut. New cases pup up all over (he town, uud with a suddenness that strikes terror lino all hearts. 1 was told bv some of the health ollkers that 1 bad better leave, as there was a great deal moro danger than must people supposed. Ih—Some people report It as bad as last year. Col. F.—'That Is exaggerated. You cannot see the hearses plying thu streets os you could last year, mul It Is encouraging to ootu llml tliure have been but few deaths. The pci** pie slum; our route were so Inglituueu Uml they refused to let us stop at their towns. Col. Forrest gives a very calm, clear-headed view ut the statu ol affairs lu plague-stricken Memphis. .Many ol those who uiu lu lowu uru so Irigblened that they think there are 4<KJ cases, but Col. Forrest's estimate probably Is nearer die truth. ST. LOUIS. QUAIUNTINU IIBOIfI.ATIONS. St. Louis, July i!l.—TTic following are tho quurautlnc regulations put In force here to-day: Writ— That no freight of any kind shall bo allowed to bo bronchi from wlml was lately known ns tho City of Memphis, and what Is now known as ” The Taxing District.” to any point within thu limits of the City of St. LouU.

He can now take sick persons and transport them from any place in the city to another place, If lu his opinion Uio health of the city de mands. Six new wards have been built at quarantine, which is on a high bluff fourteen miles south of the city. Accommodations have been provided for a colony of several hundred persons. CAIRO. MEETINGS.

Our authorities and people are terribly in earnest in their efforts to protect the city, and will, if necessary, resort to extreme measures to accomplish that end.

Louis, Mo., July 21.—N0 small degree of alarm was owauened to-day among merchants here ami all classes of cltlzcas in Cast SU Louts by the discovery that tho platform-men and yardmen of the various railroads having freight-' houses In Uie litter city were making arrange ments for a general and determined strike. The prevailing price for the class of work which these men do is $1 oerday. and they hare, la their consultations, which have been numerous during the post week, determined to demand 31.25, and to bo satisfied with nothing less. They number about 000 men altogether, and, should they succeed in making their sirbte effective, they can do very much toward pauai.vzino tub uosiness op all tub lines converging at U>e bridge, as the bulk of the freight lias to be handled In the yards of East at. Lout*. The Indianapolis & St. Louis msn struck to-day, and stubbornly refused to go to work without an Increase. Word was sent to the chief officers of the road, who responded with an offer ot $1.15 per day, which was peremptorily rejected by the men, so nothing happened at the freight-houses this afternoon, and- the condition Is unchanged to-nicht. Tlie Vandalia men at noou ihado a demand lor the Increase, with a notification that If it be not acceded to to-morrow morning they will turu out. They have received NO ANSWER ns yet. ' The Toledo & Wabash grain-ahovori struck this morning, and aro still out. Theotber laborers of that road will turn out with the rest In the morning. Tlie Ohio & Mlnsls slppl men struck at noon, bftt the freight-agent, F. M. Davldfon, told them to go to work, and guaranteed the wages then demanded for the time being, until they should hear from the managers o! tlie road, to whom he has telegraphed. lie has not heard, am! may have to carry out his contract at the expense of his own pocket. The officer* of tlie Chicago & Alton Road say their men are satlsUcd, but your correspondent Interviewed them and fouud that they INTEND TO TURN OUT with the crowd to-morrow morning. In fact, there Is to be a general demonstration In the morning, In which all tlie men will join, unless their respective roads come to terms. This is the opening of u very busy season, uud the men recognize It as their opportunity. It Is feared here that the movement means more than. it apparent on Its face, for It is argued that thus' 000 men ' WOULD HARDLY EMBARK in such an undertaking If they did not liavo i quiet guarantee that the other classes of rail* road men are at their back. In fact, the tnoro' panicky of our citizens rocognlzo.ln this the be ginning of another railroad strike, and in partial proof thereof point to the fact that arrange ments are making for n big demonstration to morrow morning at Buckner’s Station, on tho St. hauls & Southeastern Hoad. The events of to-morrow will be watched with great Interest. ADDITIONAL TELEGRAMS. To the imtcrn Anocluldl iV(Ji St. Louis, Mo., Juiy2l.— Between 800 and 300 railroad laborers employed as warehousemen and freight-handlers at the yards lu Host St, Louis struck to-day for au Increase of wages.
