LOCAL. ITEMS.
The Weather.—The cool and bracing
weather of last week has given way to a hot
! and oppressive spell, and all efforts to keep
cool for the past two or three days have
i proved signal failures. We had indulged
| the hope, that after the intense heat of the
summer, we would be blessed with an ear
ly frost and cool weather, but like sun
dry other hopes indulged in, we are doom
ed to disappointment; and yesterday wo
again saw, to our discomfort, the mercury in
: the thermometer gradually ascend to 90,
; where as if tired of keeping up so high it
stopped: but the living thermometer indica
ted a much greater degree of heat than the
mercury, aud we heard more complaint oi
the “warm weather” than we did in mid
summer. Our climate is a very changeable
one, however, and though yesterday was lit
terally uud truly a ‘‘hot day,” and people
w to busy, trying to keep cool, yet to
morrow may be cold. e have not the
slightest objection.
Alheknlv Cattle,&o.—Mr.Geo. P. howle,
of this city, has receutlv imported at consid
j erablc cost, a beautiful herd ot Alderney
prize Cattle from the Island of Jersey, near
the coast of France, and has them at Burgun
dy, his farm, uear this city. This breed of
j Cattle is justly celebrated for its milkiug
1 qualities; the quantity ot milk given by
j each eow being very great, and the quality
| exceedingly rich. Butter has been known to
I be made from this milk in a very short time
iifrnr bnirm taken from the cow. 1 he battle
; —-- n
are ot small sizo but of beautiful form, re
minding ouo of Peer. We congratulate our
j farmers of this section oi country, on the
introduction of this valuable stock, and trust
it may be the means ot improving to a great
degree, the native stock.
We were yesterday shown a bunch of Cab.
ba<*cs grown on the farm ot Mr. 1 in Prince
William County. The stalk had eleven sep
arate heads of medium fcize on and was
one of the greatest horticultural curiosities
we have ever seen.
Si eei\—W'e know of nothing more pleas
ant than after the business and toils of the
j day are over, to he able to enjoy a good
; night’s rot; but for the last few nights such
a thing has been next to an impossibility- -
very little comfortable sleeping can l*e done
with the thermometer at 10»»\ (wo suppose
it must have been in that neighborhood,
though we did not look.) and a villainous mos
quito discoursing his horrid music around
! your head. The imprecations on these in
sects yesterday were deep and loud, Irum all
quarters of the city, and many who would, no
doubt, have slept soundly, notwithstanding
! the heat, were deprived of tired nature’s sweet
restorer, on account of the mosquitoes. This
^tate of affairs canuot last much longer
however, as the loudly anticipated cool
I weather will soon he here.
Mketinu.—A meeting of the citizens was
held on Tuesday evening, in the Second
Presbyterian Church, for the purpose of
adopting measures for procuring additional
aid to the Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers.
William Hregory was called to the Chair,
and William C. Veaton appointed Secretary.

held this evening at the Lyceum Hall, at • £•
o’clock. Let there be a full attendance.

| Yellow Fever.—The Richmond W hig
: says, the faint gleam of doubtful hope which
dawned upon us yesterday, is now totally
obscured, and everything is again shrouded
in gloom. The intelligence received last
evening from the afflicted cities of Norfolk
and Portsmouth, is of a peculiarly distressing
nature. We learn that there were 37 deaths
in Norfolk city on Monday, and in the hos
pital, making45 in all. In Portsmouth, we
aro informed, there were 23 deaths on Mon
day. The undertaker at the Howard Hos
pital, Norfolk, buried 22 of those who died.
Mr. Henry Myers, of Richmond, the efficient
head nurse and steward of the Howard Hos
pital, is down with the fever.
Hr. P. C. Gooch, of Richmond, was buried
with appropriate funeral ceremonies. Also,
Mr. Jackson, druggist, from Washington.
Dr. Whitehead, acting Mayor of Norfolk,
was very low at last accounts, and has, pro
bably, ere this, follow his noble predeces
sor, Wood is, to the grave. Mr. 0. W. Ed
wards, it is supposed, will recuver. Mr.
Ambrose Dornev. a member of the Howard
Association, is dead.
It is stated that six physicians died in
Norfolk on Monday: but the probability is
that some of them died in Portsmouth, as
several have been sick there.
Eight patients were admitted into the How
ard Hospital on Monday.
We could hear nothing \t%h regard to the
existence of the small pox in Norfolk, and
have reason to hope that the report was with
out foundation.
Our citizens will perceive the necessity of
redoubling their exertions on behalf of the i
sufferers. It is an awful state of things, the
recital of which sickens the heart.
The Hampton correspondent of the Dis
patch savs: Information from Norfolk, via
Suffolk has just at this moment reached us,
which is stiil more alarming and heart ren
ding than anv yet. 1
Six physicians have dicu in hours, and .
also many of tho prominent citizens. Con
sternation and despair seems to rest on
those remaining. They know not what to
do. Through tho kindness ot Baltimore
friends, tents, about 70 in all, have beer, er
eeted on Mr. Segar's farm near here, and arc
now ready for tho acceptance of any who
might bo willing to go there.
There are multitudes of widows and cr- ;
phans, and the number is hourly increasing, ,
who are left homeless and destitute, and in
view of the fearful uews daily reaching us,
of the distress and suffering of those two
stricken cities. A standing committee has
been formed to devise ways ot assistance
and relief.
Mr. Wool in an, proprietor of tbe Mount
Vernon Hotel, at Cape May, has offered that
spacious and elegant building for tlm reeep- i
tion of the orphan children of Norfolk and
Portsmouth. He places it at their disposal
as lung as it may be necessary.
Byway of teiegraph from Petersburg, we
aro informed of tho death of six physicians
in Norfolk, who were from tho North. 1 here
were «»7 deaths in Norfolk, and 1 < in Ports- j
mouth, Monday. In the latter place Robert j
T. Scott, member of tbe Common Council,;
died Sunday night; and Avery W illiums
breathed his last on Monday night. Rev.
Vernon Eskridge was very ill on Monday
night.
No new cases have occurred in tho town of
Suffolk.
A later dispatch from Petersburg says that
Miss Sarah Catharine Manning. Richard
Eskridge, aged 18, and John Pullen, are
among the dead in Portsmouth.
Rev. Vernon Eskridge. Chaplain V. S. j
Navy, was not expected to live through Mon
day. Rev. Mr. Chisholm was very low. Coo.
F. Cuy, a prominent citizen, was down with
the fever.
Mr. J. II. Finch was buried in Blandford,
near Petersburg, yesterday evening.
