ATTENDANTS UPON YELLOW FIVER PATIENTS LIVING OUTBID! QUARANTINE. There wu no Increase yesterday in Um number of ymmtm ol yellow fever under treatment At the hoepital il Quarantine. Some excitement wu caused yesterday by r statement that two of the cases of yellow fever, lately brought to the hospital from on board the Architect, had the black vomit nbtn they were landed at Quarantine, and that notwithstanding this the persons were landed at the steamboat wharf, and brought up through the village to the hospital entrance. Some of those present at the wharf at the time of the landing of these parties begin to be fearfully apprehensive of attack ol the fever from the danger ol Infection to which they were exposed. Ihe first mate of the same vessel from which the above persona were brought, it has been slaco stated, com plained the other day of feeling a little unwell while at the hospital, and he was positively assured by Dr. Harris that he showed tho premonitory symptoms of yellow fever, be Insisted that be bad not, and was permitted to leave and come to New York. On that very night ho was taken sick in the city, and next morning sent to the bos 'pital, where be now liee. A disposition to get out of the hospital enclosure seems to possess a number of the tu mates just at present. Yes terday two men managed to eilect their escape, not withstanding the double vigilance of the olUclala on the inside, and me watch ol the Castielou sentinels on the outside. It soems the escaping parties crowded around the edge of tho wall where it reaches tho water, and not hiving been obBervod by the outside sentinels, made their way to the ferr) boat wnarf, and thus succ<ed <ad In getting away. An attempt of a similar character on the part or these in -lvldimls, made on Monday, was ?not to successful. They were all caught by the guard outside and reconducted within. Warrants for the arrest of the two who cscaped have been issued by Justice fream, oi Castleton. Added to the two caws of black vomit to who3e Infec tious influences a number of the villagers of Csaileton were exposed, a new cause of agitation b\s got afloat in learning the fact that the hospital authorities permit parties living In the village to atteud upon casos or yellow fever Inside the hospital during the day time, while they sleep At their bouses In the village. It Is said that a man name d <jlass, ha', ing the yellow lever in the hospital, U attended ?toy his wite aud mother alternately, one of whom sleeps In the village at night. It is said there are other cases? ouch is the outside rumor. Many of the vessels at present anchored olT Quarantine are said to be wholly unprotected In case ol" a ?torm. More than hair are represented aa having lull cargoes on txjard, but by their authors beiug foul imperilling both ohipa and cargoes, should anything like a severe storm arise. Yesterday a brig just arriving at Quarantine, ran into a schooner and carried away tho schooner 'a jibboom. For tunately uo other Injury was sustained. s of th?

Yesterday ws had another cf the Ion rain storms with which we have best lately larored. ?hort time ago we had a ?' heated term," in which w could get no rain, now we have a " wet term," which I all rain. It happens, however, to come at a remarkabl opportune moment the yellow fever can make no pn tress with the thermometer at 71, and the industrioi rain Is doing the work of thousands of men In the street: nod ridding the city ef all kinds of pollutlin It is, t doubt, owing to the liw temperature and this proration < moisture, that the city has been spared the ravages ot th most terrible disease, and therefore, tn spite of ot local li conveniences, and the long faces or dry goods clerks, t "wINs dasfc'' and patent leathers, we say all hail to tb rahTthe beeTthfu! rain.

The first session of the Thirty fourth Congress U num bered with the things or the pest, It ceased to exist to daj at 12 o'clock. The extent of its labors, for good or rot bad, is, from this moment, a part or tbe history or the country. Both houses remained In session from 3 star day until nearly daylight on Sunday, disposing, in thai time, of a vast amount of business. The Ksnsaa riders to the Appropriation bills have bee: withdrawn, save in the case of tUe Army bill, by thi Hoose; and everything has gone on as harmonio^ly as could be desired.

The Senate haa pat a veto on the Ntapi iitan extradition treaty, by refusing to ratify a rsnewi of it. Hence the citizens of that oppressed govermeat, i tins couutry. will bo tree for th? future, from thd dc?i> . tisai sway of their once kingly tyrant. Itu justice Intended to have been done to the desceo' ants of tbe revolutionary officers of the army, has agal been denied tbem, from the discovery that Kio greste amount of the ten miil.ooa wh.cb would have been give by the bill would fail into the hands of speculators, wh bad in a majority of instances, bought up the claims frot the legitimate persons and heirs. The next Congree will pr-ren a b'.il on this subject, by walcfa these abuse will ho provided for. Such a bill was tn coniemp'.auo this session, but it was then too late to bring It forwar with hope or HurcM*.
