Tho moment the bill fl r,nsspd there was a rush of volun teers, and tho serviced of three white There is no lack of yellow fever im- munes in the United States army. The only trouble is that, instead of being concentrated in legiincnta. thev have been scattered anion a score or more. The Second Louisiana volunteers is far moro immuno than either of the two bo called immune leuimeuts. It comes wholly from New Orleans, where yel low lever epidemics havo made most of tho population immune. Fully 99 per cent of its officers and men havo had yellow fever cr nursed it, and it could bo stationed anywhere in Cuba without danger. Nearly half the men of the First Louisiana are immune. Tho Sec ond Mississippi and the First Alabama contain many immuneH. So does the Fifth United States volunteers, while tho Ninth United States volunteers (col ored) contains moro than 90 per cent of immuncs, 11 of the 12 companies being from New Orleans. Tho war fever has raged perhaps more violently in isew urieans tuan in any other part of tho country, and tho city has contributed more than ten times its quota and has filled up the scanty regi ments of Alabama and Mississippi. The rural districts of tho southwest have fallen far behind their quotas, and their deficiencies have been made good main ly by New Orleans. This is all the more remarkable because in tne civil war theso districts furnished far more than their proportion to tho Confederate army. Alabama has fallen short of its quota and had to furnish as its third regiment a negro organization. Missis sippi has had to open recruiting offices in New Orleans. When the original call was made by the president, Louisiana was asked to furnish two regiments of infantry.

I men t a of lmmunes the Second, Flf Hi and Ninth. The Second was intended for Louisiana, but more than half the regiment came from New Orleans; the Ninth (colored) contains 11 city com panies out of 12; the Fifth (white) has its headquarters at Columbus, Miss. It was intended to include volunteers from Alabama and Mississippi, but as it was found impossible to get enough recruits from these states recruiting offices were pened in New Orleans. Entire compa nies have gone from here, as, for in stance, Whitaker's and Underwood's, to fill out the: Alabama and Mississippi quota. Theso three regiments contain 2, 400 men from New Orleans. Finding what an excellent field New Orleans was for recruiting, the Eight eenth and Twenty-third- United States regular infantry and the Fifth cavalry while here opened recruiting offices and picked up 450 men without difficulty, and now Mississippi, finding it impos sible to raiso its third regiment, has opened recruiting offices in New Or leans and will fill its quota here. These last recuits will bring the total of New Orleans volunteers up to 5, 700 or 5, 900, including the navy enlistments. This may not seem largo for Greater New York, but it is actually 12 times the quota that the city was called onto fur nish and is equivalent to an enlistment of from 75,000 to 77,000 men in New York city. If so many men were taken out of Manhattan just now, the city could not but miss them, and New Or leans is missing its volunteers in many ways. Tho explanation of the large number of enlistments here, aside from any pa triotic ardor, is the very 6trong love of adventure,' for which the city has al ways been noted, and tho fact that sum mer is a dull season here, when a l&rge proportion of the population has little if any work. The disposition to regard the war as likely to be a short one has tempted hundreds of young men to en list in the belief that it will bo over and thev will be back at work in tho fall, when business is brisk. Moreover, the climate of Cuba and yellow fever have less terror for tho avcrago New Orleans man than for tho resident of any other citv in tho United States. The withdrawal of tho large number of young men is having a very marked effect in many ways in New Orleans. There is a great scarcity of young men. Nor is tho fact to to overlooked that it has had its effect on the police news. The police force feels tho effect of the war very perceptibly," said the super intendent oi tho New Orleans police tne other day, and he pointed to the list of arrests as proof of it." The chief did not mean to reflect in any way on tne ijoui siana soldiers, who probably include as large a proportion of men of high social rank as any war has seen called forth, but only to point to the fact that tne withdrawal of some 0,000 of the most activo young men of New Orleans had made tho city a great deal quieter ana arrests far fewer. "Tho arrests are far fewer," continued thochief. "TheLiOU isiaua regiments took with thorn many men who gave us a great deal of trou ble, and they will matce gooa soiaiers, I have no doubt. The officers of ten refer to So-and-so and wonder how he is get ting on in camp and w hether he likes his now quarters better than the police station. The army discipline will act as a genuine reformatory for many of tho wild young fellows who have gone out with the Louisiana troops. , ine train ing, the military life, the strict obedi ence to orders, will make men out of them. I, for one, will watch the career and record of many a member of these Louisiana regiments who is known to us quite intimately, and I expect to see them come back more, orderly and law ahidinf?." The police record proves tne trutn oi rhipf Gaster's statement, 'inero nas been no police news in New Orleans of anv moment since tho war began.

The First immune regiment was assigned to Texas, and when it was organized the immune provision was altogether ig nored. This was done on the ground that the law said nothing about yellow fever, and, secondly, because of the diffi culty of determining whether or not an enlisted man was immune. The doctor does not usually give a patient a certifi cate that ho has had yellow fever, and the only proof of immunity and that is by no means an absolute ono is the fact that one has been in a city where an epidemic of yellow fever has prevail ed. As the last Texas epidemic occurred In 18G7 and tho fever then appoared in only a fow coast towns it will bo seen that tho chances of a recruit from Texas being an immune aro very small. The First immune regiment is therefore so only in name. The fact that it comes from a southern 6tato may make it Blightly more proof against tropical dis eases, but the differences in this respect between it and any ordinary regular regiment of tho United States army is small. Tho Second immune regiment was assigned to Louisiana and is a little more nearly immuno than the First. Colonel Ilood lost both his father (Gen eral J. B. Hood of Confederate fame) and his mother of yellow fever in the epidemio of 1879 and is himself an im mune. The New Orleans part of bis regiment is also immune. The fact that the regiment was recrultod at Coving ton, near New Orleans, attracted to it a number of recruits from that city and renders it relatively more nearly inv fiwne than the Firat. share would- have been a tattaUon, or 400 men. Governor Foster found that the city would furnish more volunteers iL. rrv nnA nsslened one oi u ,im0nt tn New Orleans that is, three times its quota, and the other to the country.
