NEW YORK , Sept. 7 To-day was
brighter , frostier and every way more
bracing1 than any day since the first
cholera ship appeared. This evidence
that the weather is aiding the
authorities in combatting the invading
scourge has sent New York's spirits
up , though it is reported that a. few
more cases of sickness have been dis
covered at quarantine.
The main question , outside of actual
combat with the scourge , seems to be
the disposition to be made of the Nor-
mannia's many saloon passengers , in
whose favor the tide of popular sympa
thy now appears to be turning , The
passengers have petitioned the people
of New \ork to take some action which
will deliver them from their floating
prison , and there seems to be little
doubt that their prayers will be an
swered , zts the secretary of the navy
has indiiectly offered the use of the
naval reserve training ship New Hamp
shire and of the proving grounds at
Scndy Hook , and the Ilambui'g-Ameri-
can steamship company is negotiating
for one of the Sound steamers.
There is no truth in the stories of
panic among the detained passengers ,
in spite of reports to the contrary.
Late last night Captain Hebich report
ed that passengers were all very well
and enjoying themselves as much as
poj-bible under the circumstances. In
fact there was a hop on board the ves
sel and the sound of merry music was
wafted across the bay to the watchers
who patrolled the witters.
The steamer Wyoming , which ar
rived ut quarantine at ! > :3U : last riight ,
was boarded. She had 278 cabin and
303 steerage passengers aboard.
Among the latter the doctor found
during his inspection fifty Russians.
The immigrants are liable to be de
tained some time. .
The Western Union steamer left
here at 9 a m. to-day to lay a cable to
Swinburne island , which will be con-
nected'with the doctors.
The City of New York arrived at
quarantine this morning , but will be
detained five days in all probability.
Secretary Seguine went to the lower
quarantine witn a large number 01
tents and bedding to provide extra ac
commodations on Hoffman and Swin
burne islands. He will endeavor
to make an accurate list
of all cases of cholera and
deaths that have occurred thus far
on the ships and islands.
Xo Fears in llerlin.
BEKLIN , Sept. 8. Dr. Guttman , at a
meeting of the sanitary commission
yesterday , announced that there was
not the slightest ground for fear of an
epidemic in this city. Cholerine was
steadily diminishing and only ten
suspicious cases were taken to the
hospitals during Monday night and
the forenoon of yesterday.
The newspapers of this city make
grave charges against the Hamburg-
American steamship company in re
gard to allowing its vessels to go to
New York Avith cases of cholera on
board. The company refuses to talk
about the matter.
The Hamburger Fremdenblatt main
tains that 4,600 persons have died from

passengers ; the freighter Kate Faw-
cett from Hamburg , August 18 , and

LONDON , Sept 3. Consul General
New said yesterday that he had re

was on Wright the old man called for
his daughter to knock Judah off with

time she struck him a terrible blow on
the back of the head , killing him in
stantly. Wright died soon afterward.

Good Rains in Missouri.
COLUMBIA , Mo.Sept 8. The weather
crop bulletin for the past week says
that the serious drouth in the state ,
which had begun to affect corn and
endanger the preparations for fall
sowing , was broken by a general rain
Sunday. Correspondents generally
agree that this rain is the last needed
by late corn and , barring an early
frost , insures at least a fair crop.

Worried Over West India Banks.
NEW YOUK , Sept 8. West India
merchants in this city are very much
excited over the rumored suspension
of the Martinique banks. No one be
lieves that the banks have failed. The
great hurricane of a few months ago
was followed by a disastrous fire and
all the crops are ruined. Hence there
is nothing to draw against , and , it is
arjued , the banks have simply decided
to make no more bills of exchange.

The death of the venerable poet ,
Whittier , Avill be widely mourned ,
for he had endeared himself by his
verse and his gentle life to a great
er number of people thnn any other
American poet , with the possible
exception of Longfellow. Though
not a great poet , Whittier's muse
had a grace and delicacy , a tender
ness and sweetness , that charmed
the enr and touched the heart as
few others can. He did not reach
the loftier heights of song , but all
that he did hud its prompting in
an earuest purpose.
Mr. Whittier's pen was a potent
force in the anti-slavery period ,
and it is perhaps not too much to
say of him that no other man not
even Garrison or Wendell Phillips
exerted n greater influence upon
the public mind or did more to
mold popular sentiment. His
poems were read where the ring
ing editorials of Garrison and the
splendid orations of Phillips did'
not reach , and the } * produced an
impression which the others could
not make. Much of this work lost
its interest with the passing away
of the conditions that evoked it ,
but the fame of the poet does not
rest wholly upon his lyrics of free
Whittier's life was of ideal gen
tleness and we recall no more
beautiful character in all literature.
He loved humanity and his talents
were employed for its improve
ments and elevation. He set an
example of gracious and gentle
living which all men would do wel
to imitate and died with an unques
tioning faith in an immortal life
beyond the grave. Bee.
THE decision of the president to
establish a quarantine of twentj
days on all vessels from infectec
ports is understood to be the besi
substitute that his powers enable
him to give the country withoul
delay , for absolute non-intercourse
with cholera stricken communities.
If a strict quarantine was al ]
that the president wished to estab
lish , ten days would doubtless be
as good as twenty. But the inten
tion is to put a summary stop
to immigration from foreign ports
whence the germs of the disease
might be conveyed uiid a quaran
tine of twenty days would accom
plish that end , for the reason thai
the loss of time and money to the
ships engaged in the passengei
business through such a regula
tion will be prohibitive. We may
rest assured that the order of the
president will stop the immigra
tion from such ports at once.
Most of the passenger compan
ies have already decided to ship
no second class or steerage passen
gers from any European port to
this country. Now , if the Canad
ian government will follow suit , it
is possible that we may escape a
visitation this fall. Journal.
"WE are handicapped , " says the
veteran leader of the Boston dem
ocracy , "by the general prosperity
of the country. " It is startling ,
but it is true that the politics of
the United States has come to that
pass that no one , not a republican ,
dares to pray for the prosperity of
the country because of its dampen
ing effect on the voice of the cal
amity hawkers and the republican
is the only fellow who dares to let
himself loose and hurrah for pros
perity when it comes , if it happens
to be a presidential year. Jour
SECRETARY PIUSK says that on
his recent visit to Wisconsin he
did not meet a single former re
publican who is not now a republi
can. There has not been a time
in many years when there was less
reason for a republican to with
hold his support from his party ,
nor has there been a campaign in
recent years in which such impor
tant issues -\\ere involved. Any
man who has ever been a republi
can should consider it a privilege
to support Harrison and Reid and
the vital principles which they re
present in this contest.

Fill the Air and Poison the Drinking
Each season of the year has its spec
ial liability to disease. The months of
August , September and October always
bring with them more or less malaria ,
according to the locality. Malaria is
due to a little organism which is gener
ated in water , producing millions of
spores , or eggs , with which the water is
filled. People drinking such water
liave malaria. Or , again , if such water
dries up under ground , the spores are
, eft to dry , and they are carried from
place to place by the wind , which are
inhaled by the people , causing malaria.
Every one is liable to have malaria at
this season of the year. Malaria does
not always produce a distinct chill and
sweating , but far oftener manifests it
self by the following symptoms : Slight
chilliness and flashes of heat , furred
; ongue and loss of appetite , continuous
dull headache and slceplessn ess , bilious
ness and dyspepsia.
For malaria in all its forms there is
no remedy the equal of Pe-ru-na. This
remedy cleanses the system of the mal
arial poison and arouses each function
of the b"dy to a healthy action. No
matter how many failures one may have
lad to get relief from other remedies ,

o health. The beneficial effects of
his remedy are felt at once , although it
may have to be continued some time to
id the system of the malarial poison.
