THE EXODDS. social Dispatch to The Tribune, Memphis, Tenn., July 26.—'The Taxing District has withinjthc past two weeks made rapid strides toward the very novel condition of a deserted city, and every day the number of its Inhabit ants is being rapidly diminished. Public opin ion has almost arrived at the conviction that the prevailing disease has been kept within certain limits by general depopulation, and those who are pecuniarily able to do so do not hesitate to getaway. Yet there are thousands hero who know not how or where to go, and the beat means of disposing of that class is the absorbing theme of discussion among the authorities. A citizens’ meeting was held to-day, attended by our best people. Bow to make provision for the poor discussed at length,* but no definite con clusion was reached beyond the unanimity of sentiment that ail must GO BEYOND THE CITT LIMITS. Tents for camoing purposes have been nrocured, and rations s promised, but no place has been agreed upon for sites for camps, the difficulty be ing the opposition among the.country people to having the qampslocated in their respective vicin ities. President Porter has determined upon a plan to be developed to-morrow, but it has not yet been made public, which will result in the establishment of camps of ample capacity for all. The colored clement, which largely predomi nates, exhibits a disposition pbe troublesome on the.camp question this* morning, declaring ■positively that they would not be driven .into military camp's. Leading citizens assured them that the military would,have nothing to wßh ■ tiio^ cSpi of peace and They were told that they would be allowed to; form colonies composed of fifty or 100 famlies, to whom tents and rations would ho issued. This HAD A PACIFYING EFFECT, and It Is now believed that no trouble will occur in the camn mvoeraent. _ The weather last night and to-day has not been favorable. Cloudy, close, rainy, and hot. Up to noon to-day it has served to augument the list of new cases, which up to 6 o’clock this evening numbered'thirteen, as follows: Willie Haskins, 3 years, South street. D. L. Stewart, 23, Orleans street. Carrie Ashbrook, S, Bradford street J. M. Ashbrook, 33, Bradford street Mary Burns, 45, Hernando street Mary Mulbrandon, 8, DcSoto street Han Crudor, 5, South street Fritz Wehone, 15, Clay street \ Lee Weherum, 9 months. Hernando street Michael Hally, 6 years, Rosa avenue. Mack White, 18, Bradford street George White, 30, Bradford street M. Ward, colored female, 27, Ruth street The latter - case, reported by Dr. Purnall, has been iu band about a week, and is now , OUT or PASGEB. • but was not reported as a yellow-fever case un- til tbls afternoon. Since the office of the Board of Health was closed, I learn that another one of the Meath family was stricken with fever this evening. The list of interments showed five deaths, three of which were from yellow-fever: Lizzie Meath, aged 16, Desoto street. Ed F. Caty, aged 35, Webster street. Joe Adams, aged 8, Clay street. Celia Trice, colored. F. Months, death caused by Injuries from a fa”- . . . Joe Medlng died of the fever to-nleht since the above report was made out. The rumored stoppage of mail facilities has caused uneasiness. The officials of the Memphis& Charleston Railroad announced that they would endeavor to keep up the regular mail trans portation with an engine. The last train went out on that road to-night, and on Friday trains on the'Memphis & Louisville Road will cease running south of Clarksville. Trains will be kept ready on each of these roads to be used in emergencies. . The Hester family are now pronounced out of danger, and the Ancient Order of United Work ingmen’s Relief Committee have now but one case on their hands, Mr. Parthesius, who is re ported pulling-through favorably. it the citizens’ meeting to-day the following COMMITTEE OP PUBLIC.

IS THE DISEASE EPIDEMIC? The rumor was current on the street all day that the disease would be declared epidemic, but Dr. G. B. Thornton, President of the Board of Health, informed your correspondent that, according to the rules precedent that the num ber of deaths from yellow-fever during the week must exceed that from all other causes, he was not authorized to declare yellow-fever epidemic in this city. ... This week’s death roll shows thirtv-fonr from vellow-fevcr and thirty-seven all othercauses. He declared It n&w doubtful it an epidemic could be declared here this season, as all that will re gain in the city after the camps have been es tablished are considered yellow-fever proof. The authorities have employed twenty men to take the census of the city, so as to ascertain the exact number of citizens present upon which to base future relief operations. Col.

Memphis, Teen., July'2o.—'Thirteen cases in all were reported to the Board o£ Health to-day. One additional death occurred this afternoon: Joe Adams, at 73 Clay street. It was thought thc'Board of Health this after noon would declare)! the feycr epidemic, but, after a careful revision of the reports from all the undertakers, the results showed, out of scTcntv-oue deaths repotted for the week, but thirty-four had died of yellow-fever. The city authorities have perfected all arrange ments for well-established camps early next week. The Executive Committee have issued the following address to all citizens of Memphis, absent as well as present The undersigned beg leave to inform yon that they have been appointed ah Executive Committee from the General Committee ol Safety, to co-oper ate with tne authorities of theTaxingDistrict in the maintenance ol order and. protection of life and. property during the prevalence of the yellow fever. Warned by past experience of the evils developed in all communities by public excitement and suffering, we are resolved to concert such measures as may meet all emergencies and give all needed help to the Taxing District Government. In carrying out these purposes, we call upon our fellow-citizens for moral and material support. We propose that, as far as ■ possible, all contribu tions bo sent to President Porter, so that, by unify ing our efforts, the greatest good may oe done to the greatest number with the least waste of means. We call upon Memphians to unite in'shouldering the heavy burden onco ; more laid upon us. We implore one and all to protect the good name of the city from the possible imputation of being a community of beggars on the world at large, sitting idly down and expecting others to take care of our Interests and feed our poor. Let the good men of Memphis do their whole duty, and, with economy, honesty, :and thorough; .system In our man agement, we earnestly; hope not .to be compelled to ask the charity of the world. Let Kit be i understood. that all moneys or supplies sent ns will be used for these purposes, feeding sick and helpless tn camps carefully selected for health, giving employment to able-, bodied men thrown out of work by the fever." guarding property, public and private, and in such public work as will promote the health and business of our city when the fever abates. \Vc shall keep a careful record of all receipts and dis bursements. publishing the same in such form as will be a sufficient guarantee to all contributors that their donations have been properly and economically applied, jf. ■ ■ D.[T.

Louisville, Ky., July 26.—There were fifty deaths in this city during the wees, the great est number—ten—occurring from consumption. There were two deaths from yellow-fever, both imported cases from Memphis. Last evening Charles Hunter was sent to the City Hospital suffering with a slight fever and was admitted. Hunter arrived in town day before yesterday from a point on the Mississippi fifty miles below Memphis. As he passed through the latter city on his way here, the doctors looted upon his case with sus picion, and placed him'apart from other pa tients. This mornlngHealth-Offlcer West ex amined him. . Although no distinguishing symptoms of yellow-fever were found, the phy sician thought best to be on the sate side, and had the sick man taken to the yellow-fever hospital. There are now four cases, all from Memphis, at the yellow-fever hospital. Sir. Poradese, a Memohis contractor, the first case, is getting well. Mrs. Pomeroy and her daughter, who were taken sick at Mrs. Hunt’s boarding-house on Preston street, and were sent out yesterday, and the case of Charles Hunter constitute, with Parodese, the entire list. As there are but few Memphis people arriving now with the prospect of fever, still.it is not likely that any more cases among refugees will develop here. The following explains Itself: Guthrie, Ky., July 2G.—Quarantine in accord ance with the rules and regulations of the National Board of Health will oe enforced at Guthrie from this date. By order of tbe State Board of Health of Kentucky. K. C. Thomas, Pinckney Thompson, Commission of the State Board. NOT X CASE OP CONTAGIOUS DISEASE IN THE New Obleans, July 26.— Careful scrutiny of the records of the Board of Health fails to dis close a single case of infectious or contagious disease in the city. AU doctors are by law re quired to jeport such to the Board within twenty four hours. Monday morning the Auxiliary Sanitary Association will begin a thorough house-to-house disinfection. An army of men will be employed, with a large number of carts and imnlements, and the work will be done thoroughly and quickly. Gutters are constantly flushed, the streets kept clean, a3B the condition of the city is better than ever known before. All of this is done by the Citizens’ Sanitary ciation, without the aid or encouragement of the Board of Health, whose main work is to tax tonnage at the river quarantine. A suspicious case is reported to-night in the Jiouse adluiniiig that where the Creel girl lived with the Stout family before she went to Mississippi City. The case has not yet advanced far enough to be diagnosed successfully,'but the ablest doctors are watching it with great care. ' St. Louis, July 20.—1 t appears likely that the first case of fever among the refugees has de veloped here to-day. William Budding, one of the first arrivals from Memphis, was taken sick at his stopping-place on Washington avenue, and h!s case proved so bad that ho was trans ferred to the City Hospital. To-night a report comes from the City Hospital that his symptoms appear so like those of yellow-fever that he must go to quarantine. Dr. Rauch, of the Illinois State Board of Health, held anptber conference with the St. Louis Board this morning. The main subject considered was bow to agree upon a system ot quarantine between the two States that should interpose a safe barrier to the spread ot disease without absolutely Interrupting trade on the river. . It >is to devise the means of securing- the ends ot quarantine without entailing its present evils that the ~ St. Louis and Illinois authorities are now putting their beads, together- At the COMMITTEE OP SAFETY.

Special Dispatch to The Tribune. conference yesterday morning it was argued that THE FIRST ESSENTIAL would be a fully-equipped station, with hospital accommodation for the treatment of the sick. This is to be supplemented by a separate estab lishment wherein to house the healthy passen gers until the period of incubation of the dis ease should expire. There must also be a wharf for the unloading and disinfection of freight, or else freighting most be discontinued, which means a cessation of trade. Cairo will be presently provided with such an outfit, the accommodations for the uninfected being simply a temporary camp on Island No. 1, below the city. The difficulty which immediately arises, however. Is.the maintenance of the large num ber .of passengers liable to arrive and be de tained at quarantine. It can readily be seen that it the Cairo authorities will act for the State of Illinois and STOP EVERY BOAT, take off the sick and send them to the hospital, take off the well and move them to the Island for five or six days, disinfect boat and bagirage thoroughly, and then send along those who have not developed the disease, the problem for towns further uo the river would be pretty well solved. Passengers could reasonably be allowed to land at audi points as they might desire. As this service of inspection would be quite os much for the benefit of .Missouri or St. Louis and other towns on this side of the Ohio River country as it would for Illinois, a division of expense might seem fair, but it is not practica ble. Dr. Rauch is therefore very anxious to have a complete service of the kind mentioned equipped in bt. Louis. It would then be easy to PREVENT THE BOATS FROM LANDING between here and Cairo, and the work, respon sibility, and expense of quarantining boats thor oughly could be shitted to this point, and the State ol Illinois still protected. One strong reason why Cairo is not a good point for the quarantine station for the upper river, is that Cairo itself 'is rather prone to become an infect ed point. The latest proposition under consid eration is for the National Board of Health to undertake the expense for a sta tion for the accommodation ol well passengers under observation, the place to be located near and operated with the St. Louis Quarantine Hospital, which would afford ample and excellent ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THE SICK. Dr. Eauch thinks this can be done. Mayor Overstolz, when the Idea was first suggested, telegraphed the National Board of Health to know if tents and rations could be forwarded for such purpose. The Secretary of the Board recommended him to apply to the Secretary of War. A dispatch was sent to that officer, and the following reply received: ■ Washington, D. C., July 20 .—T0 Henry Over state, Mayor of St. Louis; Tents can only be fur nished in case of a great emergency, which cannot be possibly relieved in any other way. and even in such case I act entirely without authority of law, ■■ [Signed] G. W. McCiiarv, Secretary of War. Mayor Overstolz stated yesterday that he did not understand that there was any such emer gency in the case as would warrant the Secretary o£ War in sending the supplies. ■WASHINGTON. A BRITISH GRIEVANCE. Special Dispatch to The Tribune, Washington, D. C., July 26.—The British Minister has been endeavoring' to induce the Treasury Department to interfere in the matter of the New Orleans quarantine so far as to rellove vessels from different ports belonging to British owners from the necessity of spending so long a time in quarantine. The matter has been the subject of a great deal of correspondence be tween the State Department" and the Treas ury. Finally, to-day, Acting Secretary of the Treasury Hawley decided that under the laws of Congress the Treasury had no authority to interfere; that on the contrary all Customs and Government officers are specially directed to assist in the execution of all State quarantine laws. In view of the fears of a yel low-fever epidemic throughout tbc entire Mississippi Valley, the Government officials are not likely to be ordered to relax their vigilance in the interest of British commerce. TO BE SEST ABBOAP. The National Board of Health has deter mined to send some naval surgeons to Havana to study the yellow-fever. Application having been made to the President and Secretary of the Navy to order soma surgeons to proceed there, both the President and the Secretary de clined on the ground that it was not ■just to order any officer to any such hazardous service. It was decided to call for volunteers, and to day offers to volunteer for this service have been received from Naval-Surgeon Thomas Hiland, stationed at Stamford, Conn., and Naval-Surgeon Schofield, of this city. They will go to Havana and ilatanzas as Sanitary In spectors of vesrels clearing for the United' States. Calls will be issued for volunteers from the army and the marine hospital service to act under the suggestions of the National Board in similar capacities at other places. NEW YORK. the imported cases. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. New York, duly 20.—Since the removal of the Memphis refugees from the Harlem tene ment-house no further cause for alarm or ex citement has developed. The health authorities have no fears that the yellow-fever will have more victims in Harlem. Sanitary physicians have been assigned to the district to make sure there shall be no concealed cases, owing to the aversion to being carried off to the Quarantine Hospital. There are eight cases under treat ment at the Hospital without further deaths. Of the eleven persons from Memphis, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzgibbons alone have the fever. Mr. Corbett made his escape after the burial of Mrs. Brennan, whose bodv he was allowed to accomnany to the cemetery, and his where abouts are unknown. The question of fumigation of mail matter has been discussed, and as extra precaution it was decided to subject all mail matter from af fected localities to a sulphur vapor, and after ward to a freezing mixture. To the Western associated Press. New York, July 20.—The Board of Health says there is no yellow-fever in tne city to-dav. Robert R.

A Horrible Accident on the North western Railroad. A Construction Train Buns Oyer a Cow and Is Completely Wrecked. Five Men Killed and Twelve Se- riously Injured. Orest Destruction of Property by Floods in Pennsylvania Soma Thirty Houses and Stores Swept Away in One Locality. TERRIBLE ACCIDENT. ! Special Dispatch to The Tribune. | Waukegan, HI., July 26,—One of the moat terrible accidents which has occurred on the Chicago & Northwestern Railway ifor years took place just below here this evening, a few minutes after 6 o’clock- For several weeks past gangs of men have been engaged in filling in about the track, and the work had bean comp plcted nearly to Waukegan.' A gravel train hail been engaged unloading dirt from north of Lake Forest, and ran close to the time of the Milwaukee passenger, which leaves Chica go at 5 o’clock. The conductor of the train, Thomas Halligan, waited until the last minute, and* then ordered the train to Waukegan. On the way to this place, on the curve perhaps a half-mile south; the engineer saw a cow lying directly across the track, but only too late, and as the ten flat cars which preceded the engine struck the obstacle they were thrown from the track and piled into a huge confusion of debris on both sides of the track. The engineer, Frank Brew, had reversed the engine and jumped for his life. There were nineteen men on the train. Some were thrown in one direction and some in another. Those who sought to save them* selves by clinging to the cars were only to be crushed and mangled by being thrown under neath the wheels or cars. Bire confusion reigned. Right there beneath the beantiful bluff overlooking the track were the mangled remains of the unfortunate men. Thb Tbib- U2ns representative arrived soon after the acid-' dent, even before the.wounded and dying men had been removed from their pools of blood, and the helpless cries were pitiable. TKe man gled remains of some lay underneath the huge pile, and * could only be removed from their resting place by the use of huge jacks. Soon after the terrible aeddent the news had spread throughout the city, and the banks were lined with people hurrying to the place of death, anxious to do whatever was in their power.for the poor injured men, some of whom were as well as dead.
