THE YELLOW FEVER
   NEW ORLEANS, September 24. - The interments from fever to six o'clock this morning were 82.
     Letters from LaGrange, Texas, to be laid before the Howard Association here, state the number of citizens remaining in the town are only about five hundred.  Yet the interments reached twenty four in two days.  The average mortality per day is eight.  Those attacked are almost sure to die, the disease proving fatal in nine cases out of ten.  Every house is filled with sickness and death, whose families have been swept away.  In some cases there is no one to bury the dead.  The disease is spreading into the country, and there are no provisions in the town.  Country people will not venture into town with their produce, and on the 9th there was not even meat to be had to make gruel for the sick.   Business has stopped entirely.  Stores are closed, and newspapers have ceased publication.  The jail is emptied of inmates, who fled in terror from the scene of desolation.

Equity Court - Judge Wylie
     Suit for alimony, Julia A. Joslyn vs. John C. Joslyn.   Swann and Miller for complainant, F. P. Stanton for defendant. 
     The petition in this case sets forth alleged marriage, subsequent neglect and desertion, and recites charges of infidelity against the defendant.
     The answer admits the alleged marriage, but denies the desertion, and charges desertion on the part of the complainant.  It also denies the allegation of infidelity.  Claims a prior divorce in Henrico county, Ohio, and claims that the complainant is not the wife of the defendant by reason of thereof.  It also denies the jurisdiction of a court of equity to grant the relief prayed for by the complainant.
     The counsel base their claim for alimony on the following grounds:
     That it is the duty of the husband to support the wife, that alimony is not confined to the divorce law; that a court of equity has jurisdiction to grant alimony and costs of suit, even to grant counsel fees, that after a suit of divorce so granted the wife can bring suit for alimony as an Independent right; that although the Ohio divorce is set up by the defendant, yet this court can look into the proceedings and examine as to the jurisdiction of the Ohio court; and that the courts of the District of Columbia have ample jurisdiction, and the Ohio court has not, therefore the alimony is prayed.

Destructive Fire in Petersburg, Va.
     About 1-1/2 o'clock last night the large tobacco factory of Mr. Reuben Ragland, situated at the corner of Halifax and Byrne streets, near the New Market, was discovered to be on fire, and notwithstanding the strenuous exertions of the firemen, the entire establishment, including a very large stock of tobacco, and a great quantity of the best machinery and fixtures, was totally destroyed.
     A large quantity of tobacco box lumber being in the factory yard, estimated to be worth $5,000, was also consumed.  The loss of the factory alone will probably exceed $100,000, which is, we learn, covered by insurance to the extent of upwards of $80,000.
     The wooden storehouse on the opposite corner of the street, occupied by L. E. Heath, and a brick dwelling in the rear, occupied by some colored people, also took fire, and were partially consumed.  The drug store of Messrs. J. W. Goodwyn & Co., and the South Ward engine-house, were saved by the firemen, though they were in imminent danger - Petersburg Index, Tuesday.
