The Hoard of American Commissioners
for Foreign Missions opened its annual session
at Utica on Wednesday the venerable Presi
dent, Theodore Frelinghuysen, occupying the
chair. We are not vet notified of the pro

ceedings, but there are indications ot that
apple of discord, slavery, being introduced
into the proceedings, insinuations having
beeu thrown out in certain quarters against
Gen. John II. Cocke, of \ irgii.ia. who was
expected to be present at the meeting, on the
grouud that he was the owner of slaves. The
General will tind some warm defenders it he
ia attacked on this ground.

The Philadelphia Board of Health abated i
a nuisance in a summary way, by removing
the contents of several buildings in New ,
Market street, and burning about titty of j
what were termed beds, by the proprietors
and the inmates. The condition of these
houses, with their tilthv, debauched and
sickened inmates, was represented to the
Board by the police of the ward, and de- .
dared by that body, after an examination, to
be a nuisance that could not be tolerated an- j
other hour, and for which, so tar as tho bed
ding was concerned, there was no other
remedy but extermination.

Sewr* Drought.
The Boston Transcript says:—
“The present drought in this immediate
vicinity is now rivalling that of last year, :
though its effects upon the crops generally (
an not so diastrous, as it occurs later in the
46*800. The last rain which fell sufficient to
dust was on Thursday, August Uth, ,
and there are no present signs of the ‘spell j
of dry weather being soon broken. The ver- j
dare of the country is rapidly changing to a
withered aspect; the. streams are getting ,
very low, and clouds ol dust are tree*} rai>ed j
both by locomotion and the avion ot the |
wind. It is ft singular fact that some wells
in the country which did not tail during tin*
remarkable drought of lust veal aw n<>\\
completely dried up. One of the oldest in
habitants’ of Newtown says he cannot re

FortreM Monroe*
Washington, D. C., Sept. 12, 1855.
To the IhUtor of the iniou:
Sir: In justice to all the parties concern
ed, L enclose you herewith, for publication, a
letter addressed to me by my friend, L>r. -J. J.
Simkins, of Norfolk.
There seems in be a singular misapprehen
sion of the facts relative tu the refusal of Fort
Monroe by the President t > the citizens of
Norfolk and Portsmouth, and a consequent
disposition in some quarters to censure the
Executive therefor.
The manly and truthful exposition of the
facts connected with this nratter set forth by
hr. S., who was himself a member of the
committee sent up to wait upon the Presi
dent, must, l think, effectually put a quietus
t<» all future carping and cavilling upon this
sul'i cot.
Very respectfully, vour obedient servant,
ALEX. V. P. HARNETT.
Stkamkr Louisiana, Sept. 7.
1H \K IWtor: It seems that some little ’
popular discontent is likely to grow out of
the late refusal of President Pierce to evacu
ate Old Point Comfort tor the benefit ot the
Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers. I was a
member of the delegation who called upon
him for that purpose, and feel constrained, so
far as my humble name will go, to correct
auv false interpretations in regard to the
matter. True, we did not accomplish all the
objects of our sad mission to \N asbington:
imt nint h ir»is titno . Our every demand was |
Hint with in if'L' il courtesy, and the most mi*
mistakeable manifestations ol deep sympathy
and kindness. The desire to serve us—both
on the part of the President and those ol
his cabinet with whom we conferred—was j
apparent to us all. At the Navy Popart- :
mont not a single requisition was denied.— !
An advance of pay to laborers at the “Hos
poit yard,” who were heads oi I ami lies and ;
ucsired to leave, was promptly promised,

These were cardinal points of our pilgrimage
to the federal capital, and they were granted |
without grudging or hesitancy. 1 he ditli- j
cutties iu the way of an immediate evaeun- \
tioii of Fortress .Monroe were doubtless im- ;
perative and insurmountable in the estima
tion of the President ami the Secretary of j
War. They were freelv discussed before us;
and 1, with several other members of the
committee, was staggered by the force ol
them at our very first interview.
There was no lack of humanity in the fail
ure of our scheme. Had this beautiful for- |
tress been tin* private property of Franklin \
Pierce, in the overflowings of a generous na- j
tnre, be would have transferred it to us with- (
out a selfish struggle.
I am led to make this hurried statement
by no partisan nor courtier like spirit.— :
Mv object is simply to correct misapprehen
sion on a subject which has awakened the
most intense excitement throughout this re
gion of country, not to win notoriety for
mvself by the defence of those in power.
You very well know, rny dear sir, that, j
apart from the assent of my political faith,
which has been freely and unhesitatingly
accorded to all its leading measures, l have
tittle reason to eulogize the present adminis
tration. It has no personal claims upon me.
Although my occasional business interviews
with the President and a few of his cabinet
have always" been characterized by the most }
respectful urbanity and apparent kindness on
their part, l have never preferred a claim
before them—either for mvself or another—
that was not promptly or ultimately rejected.
Put at no time have 1 felt this want of sue- j
cess half so keenly as on the late occasion ot
mv voluntary interference in behalf of the
plague-smitten people of my newly-adopted
home.
The partial failure of our errand was a
source of sad mortification to me; and that it
failed fur reasons legitimate and conscientious
with those on whom the resposibility rested .
I do not f»»r a moment doubt.
Very truly, yours, #1. J. SIM KINS.

Yellow Fever in Norfolk.
From the forlhcomiuj number of Dr, Reese's
American Medical Gazette.
Seldom has “the pestilence that walkoth in
darkness,” so fearfully and fatally raged in
•mV portion of our country, as in the visita
tion >f the yellow fever this summer at Nor
folk, Yii., and its immediate vicinity. And
ne\er Indore has the public sympathy been
called forth to such an extent in hehah of
the suiferers, alike in the North as in the
South, illustrating the strength of the ties of
brotherhood which indissolubly unite our
common country, and presenting examples of
public benevolence, and personal self-sacri
fice. highly honorable to the humanity of
our profession especially, and to tlie Ameri
can people.
Among the numerous victims of mortality
during this epidemic we cannot forbear al
luding to the noble band of medical men,
resident in the infected places, on whr*m the
toils and hazards of the onset of the disease
fell with tremendous weight, for they were
obliged to expose themselves to the poisonous
atmosphere from which their patients could
not be, or had uot been, removed: while their
daily and nightly labors predisposed them,
bv exhausting their own vitality, to become
ea*v victims to disease and death, but they
did not shrink from their duty, and several
of them have perished, and among them a
near relative of our own, lb*. Thomas Con
stable, of Norfolk, who fell at bis post, as a
member ol the board of Health, w Inch aug
mented both his labors and his danger.
Honor to his memory ami that of his asso
ciate martyrs to professional heroism and
fidelity!
Nothing is more worthy of record and
commemoration, than the promptness of the
response to the call lor physicians, which the
illness and death of their own medical men,
and the extent of the epidemic, rendered ne
cessary. Volunteers, physicians and medi
cal students, hastened from the Southern and
Northern cities to the hell* of their brethren.
ready to take the place of the dying and
dead, if hapily they might rescue the swrvi
vors, and aid in staying the plague l>y their
professional skill. And among these Volun
teers, without stipulating tor any !<*e or to
ward, were found men ot the very front
rank among their compeers both in know
ledge and experience, some of whom were
familiar with yellow fever in all its phases,
and who had themselves suffered from attacks
of the disease. The services of such accli
mated and experienced men, at such a crisis,
no money could purchase and n»> pecuniary
recompense could adequately reward.
Nor should we fail to honor the true no
bility of soul which has prompted so many
young physicians to hasten on from Balti
more, Philadelphia, New York, Richmond,
Charleston, New Orleans, for all these places
have one or more representatives there, and
some of these we learn are already number
ed with the dead, having fallen in the labori
ous duties to which they had devoted them
selves in the cause of science and humanity.
A full history of this pestilence in Virgin
ia will doub tless be forthcoming from some
of the medical mon who may survive, until
which time it does not become those at a dis
tance to speak authoritatively as to its cau
ses, the sources of its extension and fatality,
its peculiar phases, or the comparative mer
its of the variety of treatment to which a
resort has been had during the panic. In
deed there is good ground of apprehension
that no good, but rather much evil, has re
sulted from much that has been published in
the newspapers already on all these topics. —
The speculations which allege importation as
its only source, and contagion as the means
of its propagation, are much to he deplored,
as diverting attention from the local sources
of malarious emanations, which may be
traced, discovered, and removed, before
another “heated term” of Summer shall en
danger the public health. Moreover they
tend to engender a false confidence in quar
antine regulations, which history and expe
rience as well as science all prove, are not
reliable. The temperature of the atmos
phere in New Y ork, Philadelphia, and Balti
more, during the past summer, has not been
high enough continuously to develop the
poison, ami to this our exemption is due, far
more than to the vigilance of health officers:
and so of many other places, which else
might have been visited.
In Richmond, a largo number of eases
have appeared, every one of whom were re
cently from the infected places; but not a
single instance lias occurred in that city in
which the fever was contracted from these
cases. One has occurred in the New ^ ork
hospital, and another in Williamsburg, both
from Norfolk, having received infection
there, and reached here before* the disease ex
hibited itself. But no one received it from
these, or had cause to fear it. For no fact
is better established than that the sick with
yellow fever, when removed to a healthy at
mosphere, cannot propagate the malady.—
The attempt to create a panic, therefore, be
cause of the development of the disease in
persons who have been exposed to tho epi
demic. alter their removal to other and dis
tant places, deserves the severest reprehen
sion.
(Quarantine, therefore, against the persons
hailing from iufooted places, whether sick or
well, is a barbarous as well as useless impo
sition, f«»r which ignorance is the basis: and
any pecuniary forfeiture or tee extorted from
such persons, by officials or otherwise, merits
the penalties against obtaining money under
false pretences. Such legal restrictions
against vessels coming from infected places,
on which yellow fever has appeared, or from
tht* holds of w hich, when opened, the poi
soicus malaria may escape, and contaminate
our atmosphere, are very proper; for all such
voxels should be subjected to ijuarantine:
un i tiii" alone affi rds the onlv rational l re
text for the continuance of tin* system.
No less to be deplored have been the in
cidental efforts, made through the public
press, to create the impression that the mal
ady so fatal in Norfolk, Ac., is not the yel
low fever, but some other and more fatal
pestilence, as the African fever, the plague,
Ac. From reliable sources we take it upon
ourselves to say that the epidemic in
Virginiais neither more nor less than t/rl/t otr
/Iivr. and differs in no respect in its phases
‘or mortality, from that fever as it prevails
in New Orleans and other cities at the South,
during tbe summer months. The tardy re
moval of the inhabitants from the infected
districts may have augmented its mortality,
especially among the physicians and public
officers whose duties kept them nightly ex
posed to the poison; but we fear from the tone
of certain publications we have seen, that
the want of success in treating tbe malady
mar have partly arisen from the “expectant
treatment** or tin* do-nothing system of medi
cal practice, so highly eulogized by certain
letter writers for the press.
We speak as a witness, rather then as a
disputant, when we say, that familiarity with
the yellow fever many years since in a South
ern city, authorizes our conviction that n > form
of “expectant treatment” ever designed can
adequately meet the inflammatory and con
gestive pathological stute, which quickly
supervenes in well characterized yellow fe
ver. When the epidemic is over, and the
truth comes out from reliable sources as it
assuredly will, this “expectant treatment’
will have its epitaph written by the records
of the dead. Not that rash or violent remedies
are called for, but active medication, propor
tioned to the urgency of each individual
cose, will be found to Lave been successful,
when early employed and judiciously admin
istered.
We cannot close this desultory article
I without expressing our dissent from the
prognostications of certain alarmists, who
: have sought to credit a public panic, by
vague and unwarranted surmises that the
| yellow fever having reached Norfolk tins
year is travelling North, and may ho expect
ed to become epidemic in Baltimore, Phila
delphia and New York, possibly on the ap
proach of warm weather next year. Jf the
contagionists of the profession were reliable
oracles, or if importation were the source of
i vellow fever, such panic makers would doubt
, jess see their prophecies verified. But the mean
! temperature of our atmosphere the past Sum
, mer, and for very many years past, at New
York, leaves us no just ground for apprehen
1 sion that our “heated term” of each season
i will he sufficiently protracted to generate the
1 yellow fever in this climate, now that our
sewerage is so extensive, and our Croton wa
(ter is ever flowing in upon us with its sani
. tary fruits as preventive of disease.
I Our health officer will see to it that no
■ vessel from infected ports passes his station,
' which is six miles oil; ami our Board of Health,
: if they do their duty, will allow no source of
malaria or other nuisance to remain unabated.
And with these precautions, so far as second
ary causes are concerned, and the blessing
uf Providence, we have no reason to anticipate
the visitation*of yeMow fever, or any other
epidemn, in this latitude. For tho law of
; epidemic is as immutable as any other law
, uf nature, and without continuous and
: protracted heat, ami the criminal neglect ot
i sanatory measures, tho occurrence ol yellow
t fever in New York is, in our opinion, a
' physical impossibility. M e say nothing in
reference to the theory ot those who regard
! such calamities as the judical visitation of
j Heaven, for the wickedness of cities, fait we
doubt whether Norfolk and its vicinity contain
j greater sinners than some other cities we wot
1 of. But we speak only of second causes,
because our science knows nothing ot hidden
things, which belong to (lod alone. At the
last meeting of the N. \. Academy <*i
j Medicine, very great iuterest was expressed

We have received files of the “Deseret
News” to July 25. The “News” hoists the
name of Hon. J. M. Bernhisel for re-elect ion
as delegate to Congress. The general elec
tion would be held on the first Monday of
August. The emigration to California had
commenced to pass through Great Sait Lake
City, but the “News” thinks it will be very
i light this year. The weather since the latter
part of May had been very warm, making
the ground dry and hot and the streams very
low, thus causing the loss of much ot the
small portion of grain and vegetables left by
the grasshoppers. The coping-stone is laid
upon three-eighths of the wall around Tem
ple Block, and a large dwelling-house for
; President Brigham Young was progressing
rapidly.
The Fouithof -July was celebrated in Great
Salt Lake City with great parade, firing of
• cannon, and making of speeches. ’I ho fol
lowing are some of the sentiments proposed:
“President Franklin Pierce: May he live
till his popularity is equal to his virtues; ami
• may no future President of tlie l . States do
i any more harm or less good.
The Governor of I * tali: lie is as he was,
and as he is, so may ho ever be.
The Territory of Utah: The hub of the
great wheel of creation; “spin awav, gals,”
and clothe the heralds of holiness in home
i spun.
Deseret forever: Her own Governor, her
own religion, her own legion, and her own
“peculiar institutions,” instead of office-hop
' pers, elod hoppers, or grass-hoppers.
• Liberty of conscience: The bulwark c*f
' every Government. Woo to the nation that
, muzzles it.”
Notwithstanding the iinprosperous state ol
affairs, the “Twelve Apostles” are stirring in
the saints to pay their tubings, that the wol f
of building “the Temple of the Lord” ma\
not hr* hindered. The “Saints” evidently
are rather backward, and wish to putotl tin
“Apostles” with promises of what they wil
! do when times improve: but they are toe
l that their excuses will not be taken.

But what “riles” Brigham more than al
else is the ungrateful conduct of the soldier
in playing the deuce with the hearts ot th
Mormon women ami girls. 1 he order h

President Pierce.
Coming events cast their shadows, while
the signs of the times arc pregnant with
emergencies profoundly interesting and im
portant to the people «»f this mighty republic.
I l»ehold the sail spectacle—the mortifying
i spectacle, on the part of your former friends
! and devoted advocates, of seeing enemies to
j tue principles which brought you into pow
| cr>_enemies to the enlightened and liberal
* institutions of the country,—enemies to our
' glorious Union, honored and rewarded, while
| those who manfully and triumphantly de
fended them, have been treated by your ad
f ministration with cold inditlerence it not
• with personal di>rcspeet. fi this bo true,
i where is to be found the manifestation o!
v.Mtr friendship and sympathy tor the South.
If this be true, where shall we find the ‘'sil
ver link, the silken tie, which heart to heart,
! and mind to mind, in body and soul, coni
; bined?” If it be true, that knowledge, and
! power, arc correlative terms, equally true is
i it. that office, public honors, and emoluments
j never fail to exercise a decided and power
fill intlueuee upon the body politic. If it hi
; true, that you aided in bringing free toiler:
into power at the North, have you not, tlieio
bv, strengthened their cause, acknowledged
! their moral weight and consequence, and the
/ov/mw of their dangerous heresies? These
arc plain questions, bv no means intended t<

| May l presume, to refer your Excellency
to the instructive Fable ol the Husbanduiar
i and the Adder? These brief and no dotib
| I crude remarks, are not the littul expression!
j of momentary excitement, but the painfu
convictions of apprehended, fearlul uni
alarming national evils, -and in thus calm
l 1 y, and l trust, respectfully addressing you'
Excellency, if 1 state the truth and nothin;
hut the truth, I thereby state tai ls;—Tut i

! am here forcibly reminded of the soliloquy
‘ of the dth Henry, wherein he says, (or n
I made to say,)4* Then happy, low lie down, un
i easy is the head that wears a Crown.’
That the elements of political strife anionp

1 selves, is an undoubted truism, and he win
\ fur a moment, imagines that he cun cause ii

1 The 1 ;ite President Polk, came into power
. not unlike yourself, but he went out not unit
without the slightest effort to re elect him, bn
with the entire approbation Vi his own party
’ . and w hy? Simply because he vainly endeav
i ored to make converts—to reconcile discord
ant principles—rewarding enemies,—over
I looking well tried friends, reckless of tin
feelings and just rights of the hitter. II
; then, we estimate the future by the past, i
i we look at men and things as they really ex
' ist, in u state of society, we must conclude
’ that no man, however exalted, however wi«e
1 however learned, however talented lie mav
he. can retain power, unless he steadily re
grtrds tin* moral and legitimate rights ol
those who brought him into it. ^ oil will not
and cannot deny this.
In the Presidential canvass, your political
friends were numerous, firm and united, tc
1 i a high degree:—they fought your battles—
, defended your fair mum*, and fame, at all
times, at all seasons, and at all places, and
I triumphantly elected you President of tin]
l uite i States, (ireaf wa*-your popularity;
but have you not hist its favor? It is be
lieved that popularity (as a general remark
i is not less fleeting than the Ephemera which
we are told live* hut a day t<» glitter in the

It is evident that our surplus cannot afford
it, an 1 as l..ng as a war lasts costing tj(k)

human footl must command high [trices. In

i harvest has been a lull one, but in other pla

There is an immense growth of stalk, but
small ears, and not many et them, and I am
inform* I it is mj throughout the West, and
the fertile \ alley. Expectations of a super
abumiant crop, will not, I believe, be realized.
Anticipating high prices the millers made
.large contracts before harvest. The mills
arc now full of wheat to overflowing, and
money all out. They do not care to buy,
' but fisk their own prices. Iri consequence ot
heavy stocks already purchased, there is not
i enough iimney on Commerce street, l reder
! ieksbtirg, at present to buy a cargo, or make
! a cash advance, hence there is no cumpeti
: tion now between that place and Alexandria
and Georgetown. Under the e circumstances
there is nothing to depress or dishearten the
farmers, but everything to make them san
guine and eontideut, and to follow the ad
