Yesterday alternoon the Brooklyn Board of llcalth held a special meeting at their rooms, cor ner of Court and Livingston stroets, lor the purpose of taking Immediate steps to allay the lears which many may havo entertained tn regard to the reported presence of yellow fever in Brooklyn. The Health Commissioners, having made a thorough examination of tho cases reported, say that they do not And any positive symptoms of yellow fever among them. Dr. Cnikliug said he thought it was ncccssary, un der the circumstances, to call the meeting, in order to correct an erroneous impression. Dr. Segur then submitted tho following report:? Sir? Witliln tho past ten clays four eases offerer, two of them fatal, have occurred, the first two at IS State street and the last two at 17 State street, one death re sulted in each house. The two surviving patient*, u boy g xti on yeiirsof ugo anil a woman about twenty-five have been sick, the former since Wednesday, the lf<th init, 8yd the latter since the 20th inst., and at tho present time present J>o peculiar or unfavorable symptoms, but would bo generally considered by physicians as levers of a lnalariftlivp^. Xl!? first C.im", n boy aged eighteen, lull sick on tne 13th and died on tho 17th inst. He was treated bv his physicians lor remittent fever and a death certificate given accordingly. I did not see the patient; the |ihvs;cian reported hi* death to nie, and the fart that his confidence in the correctness of his diagnosis had been disturbed at the last by tl.e appear ance of the vomited matter, especially its iilack color. I thought better to act on the mere suspicion of'a death from yellow lever in a crowded tenement house and neighborhood. 1 have been informed by physioisns who have practised many years in this locality that It has always been unhealthy, and that tin se who sicken there are apt to die. Accordingly I caused the prompt removal of the body, clothing, and the Itimigatlon and disinfection of tne premise*. Sanitary Inspector Colton, who has had lung experience as a public health officer and has watched all developments in these cases and made carc tui inquiry Into tiieir origin, does not find suffi cient ground for the opinion that yellow fever has occurred in Brooklyn. Un the morning of the 21st Nos. 3 and 4 of these cases wore reported to me. and, with Or Colton, I visited them One was reported to have black vomit it, but on careful cxami examlnatlon I found that this was incorrect. This woman had miscarried, and her case was so much like what I have seen of puerperal fever that I expect ed her death, which occurred in the alternoon. to conclude The three cases seen present a uni form type of fever, and bear suMrient resemblance to the description of the first us to lustily the opinion that It was not yellow lever. Or. A. M. Bell, of this city, late Commissioner of Quarantine, and fumillar with yellow fever from experience in the United States Navy, does not find in many visits to these coses and examinations before and after death any appearance resembling yellow fever. B. A. SEGUK, Sanitary Superintendent. Dr. conklino offered the following:? Whereas the statement that several cases of fellow fever have recently occurrc.l in our city has obtained a wide circulation. It has been deemed proper to convene this extraordinary session ol' tnis Board, and in order to allay the anxiety such reports must occasion, it is Resolved, That iroin repeated personal visits upon the patients by the medical members of this Bosrd, and from consultations with medical gentlemen whose familiarity with the diseafe renders their opinions of great value, it Is declared as tho judgment of this Board that no casii of yellow fever now exists or has occurred in our city during the prcscntseason. Adopted. General JontDAN remarked that he was rather surprised at reading that the Health officers were reticent In regard to these cases.

Mkmi'iiis, Jane 22, 1873. Thin was the hottest day or tho season, the ther mometer being at 04, but the day was bright and clear. There has been a marked decrease in the deaths from cholera. The whole number of inter ments were ntnetecn, ol which nine were cholera cases. It la the general holier that the disease has run Its course here, and will probably disappear. Reports Irom tho surrounding country along tho lines of railroads are still very gloomy. Nasuville, June 22. 1R73. Tho mortality to-day from cholera was fifty-two, against titty-nine yesterday. Tho weather has been clear and apparently healthy all day. In Louisville. Louisville, June 22, 1873. The reports of cholera in this city are entirely groundless. Although there is anxiety there is no apprehension of cholera, the city up to this time having been absolutely exempt from the disease. The Hoard of Health announce that the health of the i ity is better than during June for several years, and its sanitary condition is better than ever before known. In Cincinnati.

The tlrst case of supposed Asiatic cholera? that of a colored woman? terminated laUlly yesterday. It is said that six similar cases were reported last night by the Hoard of Health, and that they are in tho most tllthy localities. CHOLERA PREVENTIVES. Circular from the American Public Health Association? Witat Should Be Done to Prevent the Spread of the Disease. In view of tho appearance and progress of cholera in the South and Its by no means Improb able advance into other parts ol the country, the American Public Health Association have prepared a circular concerning the means ol combating the dread destroyer and have issued it for publication. The following are the principal points iu this timely and useful document,:? SANITARY CI.KANStNIJ. The local conditions that, chiefly promote the out breaks and propagation oi cholera are:? 1. Neglected privies. 2. Filth-sodden grounds. 3. Koui cellars auu tllthy or badly-drained surroundings ol dwelling*. 4. Foul und obstructed house drains. 5. Decaying and pulri-sccui materials, whether animal or vegetable. 6. Ij n ventilated, damp and uncleaused dwellings and apartments. These localizing causes of cholcra should be promptly and very thoiougliiy removed before a case ol the disease appears iu the town or uistrict, and ir any sources oi putrescence or oi excessive moisture remain these should be controlled by the proper cleansing, drying and uisiufcctiou. Thorough scavenging and surface drainage, with tho application at the stme tune or quicklime and and coal tar or crude carbolic acid; whitewashing with iresit quick lime ; the cleansing and thorough drying and ventilation ol cellars, basements, cham bers and closets, and daily care to cleanse, flush, ventilate and purity the sources of detllenientubout ail inhabited premises, will afford almost complete protection if suitable care is taken of personal health. The security of personal health requires pure drinking water, iresh and substantial food, tem perance and the needed rest and batlilug ol the pody. disinfection and disinfectants. The principles relating to disinfection as a means of destroying the propagating or Infectious cause of cholera and arresting putreinction are readily understood, and may be so explained to any futility that the Uousenold may insure its own immunity against the introduction an4 spread ot the disease. For i>opiilar use we append a brief statement of these principles at the end oi this circular, and we respectiuily recomii)<>nd that the statement and thv following schedule of rules and methods be given <o tlie press anil to all. principals ot schools, .supeiinteudents ol pluccs of public resort, railroad depots, terries, hotels and public institutions and to the masters ol ships and steamboats aud the conductors of passenger trains throughout this Continent, believing, as we do, that by the timely aud couuuued application of these measures the prevalence ol cholera, may be prevented. Hut let the tact be remembered that tnere can be no sub stitutes >or thorough cleansing and ircsli air. RI LES AND METIlODa OK DISINFECTION. For PrlvU'S, water closet#, Drains a nt .snnrt.? higlit or ten pounds ol sulphate ol iron (copperas) dissolved in five or six feallons of water, with half a pint id crude carbolic add added to the solution and briskly stirred, makes tho cheapest and best disinlecting fluid tor common use. it can be pro cured In every town and by any faintly, und if the carbolic acid is not at hand the solution of copperas may be used without it. To prevent privies ami water closets from be coming luiected or oiionslvo, pour a pint ol this strong solution tuto every water closet pan or prtvy seat, once or twice a day. To ilisintect masses oi tilth, privy vaults, sewers and drains, gradually pour in tins solution until it reaches and disinfects all the toul material. For the chamber vessels used by the sick and for the disinfection of ground .upon which any excre mental matter has been cast away, use the solution ol copperas aud carbolic acid, and lor disinfecting extensive masses or surfaces of putrescent mate rials. and for drains, sewers aud ditches, this disin fecting fluid mav be used, or the "dean oil" ("heavy oil") of coal-tur or coal-tar itsolf; coal-tar muy be used as a paint upon the walls of cellars, siables and open drains. other dislii/rctants, such as the solutions of ses qulchlonde of Iron or chloride orzinc, are effectual in privies and drains and upou loul surfaces and offensive materials. Quicklime is useful as an absorbent and dryer upon foul walls ana in damp places, and white was. ling with it should be practised in common tenements, factories, basements, oloscts and gar rets. To disinfect the clothing or bedding detllcd in any manner by excremtntal matters from the sick, thro* them into a solution made as follows:? One pound or sulphate ol zinc to six or eight gal lons or water, to which add two or three ounces of pure and strong caroolic acid? such articles to remain therein at least hall un hour ; then Imme diately place them In tailing water, and continue boiling If the acid is not at hand, then use the solution or zinc in water. Tiie same disinfecting solutioe Is excellent lor bedpans aud chamber vessels, and lor soiled tloors or duilled surfaces. Apartments, bedding und upholstery that have been used by the sick with cholera or diarrhoea should be thoroughly cleiwised and disinfected. PRINCIPLES AND DUTIES TO BE OBSERVED. 1. That thorough cleanliness, domestic and civic, and an abundant, supply or pure water arc esseii'ial wans ot preveuttng cholera iu any household when the disease is near. 2. That general cleaning, scavenging and dis infection should be attended to In every city and town before cholera makes Its appearance; and that wherever It does appear, that house ami the exposed premises should be kept constantly dis- | infected. 3. That, whatever differences of opinion there mav be respecting the epidemic phenomena ol different periods, the paramount importance of thorough cleanliness and dislniectlou is to be kept In mltid: and that, in the words of the Chlel Medical Officer of Great Hrltain, "It appears to bo characteristic ot cholera, not only of the disease In its developed and alarming tnrm, but equally of the slightest diarrhoea whlcti the epi demic can produce, that ail matters which the pa tient discharges from his stomach and bowels are Infective; that the patients power of infecting other persons is represented almost or quite ex clusively by those discharges; that they are com paratively non-mlectlve at the moment they arc discharged, but afterwards, when undergoing de composition, acquire their maximum lniective power; and that It they be cast away without pre vious disinfection, they impart their own infective ! quality to the excreinental matters with which they mingle In tilth-sodden earth, or in de- j positories and conduits of tilth, and to the effluvia which those excremental matters evolve; that If the infective material, by leakage or soak age from drains or cesspools or otherwise, gets access, even In the smallest quantity, directly or through porous soil, to wells or other sources of drinking water. It can Infect, in the most danger ous manner, very large volumes of the water; that the infective Influence of the cholcralc dis charges attaches to whatever bertdlrw, clothing and like things have been imbued with them, and renders these things, If not disinfected, capable of spreading the dleeaee." 4. Cleansing and purity, skilful disinfection, tem perate habits, and wholesome diet, with pure water and fresh air, are the tmsted and sure means of health and security in all places und for all classes of people when exposed to the rauses or cholera. The watchword against this destructive enemy should l?e? Remove t tie local causcs that tavor the propagation of cholera, and wherever It appears let its germs be quickly stamped out by powerful disinfectants and special cleansing. PRINT OLOTH MARKET.

The Montana War Clalmt? Serloni Charge Against a Clerk. Much excitement has been caused by the recent action of J. W. Butterfleld, clerk In the Seconif Comptroller's office, In connection with the adjustment of certain Montana claims, lor the settlement of which Congress at the last session appropriated something over live hundred thousand dollars. These claims grow out of supplies furnished to the volunteer forces operating against the fndiaus in 1887 by citizens of that territory. Originally they amounted to $1,100,000, but were scaled down by General James A. Hurdle, Inspector General of the Army to the amout above mentioned. These claims have been In course oi settlement since the adjournment of Congress, and over three hundred thousand dol lars have already been paid. The partlculrr cause of complaint against Butterfleld has its origin

in the fact as alleged by various parties that Leander M. Black, of the Territory o Moutana, and A. J. Insley, of Kansas, had glvou to Alexander Cummings, Adjutant General of Mon tana, $25,ooo lu vouchers, In consideration of services rendered in Issuing to them the quota of the voueliers claimed by Black ami Insley. when the vouchers were presented here lor pay ment by P. Largey, of Montana, about three months ago, they having been hypothecated by Cuuimlngs to Largey for money advanced, Black and Insley entered a protest before Butterfleld against the payment of the vouchers, claiming them as their property. Chief Clerk Curtis, acting as ftecoud Comptroller In the absenco of Or. l'roadhead, sugRCsted to I.angey to have the dispute between the two parties interest ed adjusted in Court. Lungey accordingly called on Butterfleld, when Butterfleld gave him uutll Wednesday of last week to procure an injunction against their payment until tho matter could be brought to a Judicial termination. Tho money had, however, on tho preceding Friday, unknown to Largey, been paid on tho vouchers to Black and Insley. The amount was something over $18,000. It is alleged that Black and Insley bad given to a certain party lu Washington vouchers to the amount of $15,ooo for influence with the Indian Bureau In fur therance of Indian contracts several years ago. These vouchers were transfened to a gen tleman in liquidation of a claim which he held ag&lnst the party receiving the vouchers from Black A Insley, and these vouchers were next placed In tho hands of Mlddleton A Co., blinkers, of this city, for collection. They presented them to Mr, Butterfleld, when Black A Insley again protested against their payment to the other party, and Butter fleld then paid to Black k Insley the amount found due according to the award of General Hur dle. The amount of money paid o;. both transac tions is $22,000. No censure Is cast on Mr. Curtis, though he did not particularly examine the Montana papers presented to him by Butterfleld among others at the same time lor his signature, not doubting his suggestion us to judicial determination in the dis puted case would be observed. Yesterday tho attention of the Secretary of the Treasury Vas called to this matter bv Messrs. Wilson and Stan ton, attorneys lor Largey, Mlddleton A Co., bank, ers, and by Largey in person. The Secretary In formed those gentlemen ho would give tho mutter his immediate attention anil cause thor ough inquiry into all the facta. It is due to Mr Butterfleld to state, ou Ills own representation, that he can satisfactorily explain his action in the premises, and Is prepared to meet all charges, against his integrity. The New Uold Dollar and Affairs of the Mint. A telegram was yesterday received by Dr. Lin derman, Director of the Mint, I run the Superin tendent of the San Francisco Mint, saying there are numerous inquiries lor the uew trade dollar, largo quantities being wanted tor shipment to China oil the 15th July. The Director has replied that the dies cannot be sent to San Francisco be fore the Cth or loth of July, and therefore the de mand for the dollars cannot be immediately sup plied. He expresses his regret that the prepara tion of the <llcs has been delayed, notwithstanding Ills efforts In that direction. The jrold coinage at the San Franctsco Mint for the mouths of July and August will, according to I the information lrom the Superintendent, be j $0,000,000, or $a, ooo, ooo cacii month. Three or four millions of double dairies will be recolned during tills month at tho Philadelphia Mint. They will be sent to tho New York Sub-Treasury to be paid out as interest on government bonds. The yield of the Crown Point and Belcher mines continues at the rate of $3,000,000 a month in equal part of gold and sliver. These mctais are ! Bent to San Francisco, where the ?old is coined into double eagles and the silver shipped to Kng land In bars. This year there will be coined at the three mints about forty million dollars of gold in dependent of rccolnaite. The recoinage Is for the purpose of making the coin conform to the reccut law of Congress. Where there is an abrasion of more than one-half of one per cent there must be a recolnajre. Tho export ofirold coin is very trifling? not more tliau $200,000 this month. The Director of the Mint has received replies to the circular Bent to all our Jorelgn Ministers for the purpose of ascertaining the standard of coinage In the re spective countries to which 6hf?y are accredited. These replies contain valuable Information not hitherto possessed by the Mint. They relate to coinage generally, Including tno limit of abrasion and values In money and of account.

Alter the preliminary services, the main feature ot which was the antliem, by a choir of male voice*, written by a graduate of I860 and sot to music bv Dr. Stoockcl, the instructor In music, President Porter announced his text to be found in the First Epistle of John, the filth chapter and fifth verse? "Who Is ne that overcometh the world bnt he that bellcveth that Jesus Is the Son ol Qua f" TUK SKKMON. John kucw Jesus lutimutcly while on earth, lie had witnessed the power of fulth in Una over others, and, whatever men think of this faith, none can deny its power. Mcu tell us now that tho spiritual 'Christ must give way to a his toric Christ ; that for miracles must be substituted laitb in Christ's sell-denying charac ter. We hold the opposite. In the future, as in past, tho necessity of this faith will not be out grown, but mado moro manifest. First, to over come the world has been the Ideal labor of thought lul men in all ages. To do t his Is to understand the laws of tbe universe. Man must also overcome self, ami this Is the hardest task. If John had known Kpictctus and Plutarch ho would havo said that all they taught was good us Jar as it went. The difficulty is, that we bellevo In a person who helps us to do good. In the second place, occasion for help has iu no sense been re moved. To overcome the world is as difficult as ever. Science, arts nnil letters to the contrary, life is still a conillct in every individual man. The strong man fails in the high noon of his strength and honor. Culture enlarges our sensibilities. Our enlarged seusltillltlea enlarge our capacftlcs for sin. Science must be reminded that its know ledge is limited by Infinitude. The substitutes for our old faith are insufficient. Civil ization, education, elevation of tastes by letters and arts, are efficient, If they are so at all, as they teach and train. If education is to train and in spire, it must bring soino personal force to attract, by example, to captivate by law. without living persons, science and culture can accomplish very Utile. WE AKK MOVKn BY IDEAS, but most of all we want men, otherwise Ideals be oqme I'!<?ih, a figment or tue Imagination. Matthew Arnold and followers believe in the study of man hood, in the idealization or virtue. This they sub stitute lor a beliei in Obriit. For the personality of God they substitute a dream of moral tendency. They have no Christ, but an ideal Christian, as if one could be religious by studying religion, we now reach tbe positive conclusion, a personal God is the only agency by which man can ovor ciuii" the world. It this be not 80. what means the faith of scientists in a mighty despot who can compel conformity with tho laws of the universe f What means tho belief of the devotees ol literature in a inodely The story oi the cross is the old, old siory, but always new to him who makes it so. We have heard it a thousand times, but when a man learns his need by soui" experience ot ids me, it is as though glad tidings ot great joy were heard and heralded as on the plaius of Uethlehem. CHRISTIANITY WITH CHKIST at the head shall never be outgrown as long as ?luiul EOUll shall crave tor sympathy. No mail and no generation or men can outgrow occasion tor a iaitli in God unless they outgrow the problems of lite. The factitious differences in the wav of faith promise to be removed by the growth of cultuie. While there never was a time in which It was so oasv to deny Christ, it is yet true that nuver was faitli in the Sou of God so simple as now. lie came to teach us to overcome the world. Tills conquest gained, <all else is gained. FAREWELL OF THE I'UKSIDKNT. At this point the senior class arose in their places and received the larewell of the President, lie referred to their peculiarly sunshiny and bright career iu college. Death was comparatively a stranger to them, having but twice visited th?lr circle, once in the early and once in i he latter pa' t of their coarse. Vet they knew what sorrow and trouble was and what was Its end In this Hie namely, the discipline of tho?e who bear it for a lietter life, lie wished that they might all be henceforth Christians; but if they did not all ac cept Christ In their early life his highest wish con cerning ins beloved people was that tbey might at least inherit eternal life. Alter prayer and the singing of the 12lst Psalm, the I'resnl nt came out of his pulpit, and, walking out through the centre aisle oi the chapel for the last time, he received as he passed tue grateful homage of the class of 1873.

Pol'GU KKEI'SIK, June S2, 1873. ' For over five weeks this section of country has heen without rain, If we may except a slight, shower several days ago. For many days tha heat has been intense, the! mercury In the ttieiv jnometor ranging among the nineties. For three or lour nights past no dew has fallen and the country Is suffering terribly. That hay crop on uplands Is entirely destroyed, but that en lowlands Is safe yet for ?? week, if rain comes within that time. In some sections farmers are plowing In tha meadows and sowing fodder corn, fearing they will have nothing lor thtMr stock If the drought continues, oats on rocky, dry lands are corn* pletelv gone. Rocky and gravelly land has turned as reel us a fox. And the monntaln Urea have commenced. In the high lands on the Uudson, on St. Anthony's Nose, across to Fort Mongomery and In the vicinity oi Crow's Nest hundreds of tree* have been destroyed by the (lames. Friday night Are caught In the underbrush on tlie FlshXlll Mountains, live miles Irom .sliver Lake, and ia less than three hours It had ran nearly ftva miles, destroying one thousand cords of wood belonging to Mr. George H. Brown, and clearing Its pathway ot trues. Tlie scene at night was magnificent, the crests of the mountains being lined with flame, and the whole valley beneath was the next morning enveloped In smoke. Gang* of men were hurried to the spot, aud they fought the tiro with dirt and fallows, but It Is burn ing yet, ami up the Hudson a smoky atmosphere prevails nay and night, and the smell ol are front burning forests and underbrush Is everywhere. The CatskUl Mountains are almost entirely shut from view, aa also la the Ulster range of the snu watigtmks. There have open westerly winds fot many days, and as a consequence the water in tho Hudson is extremely low, and navigation north of Hudson is very dltllcult. As I close there are proa pcccs of rain. . Karli This ' 'l'lie Cough that Might produce Tubercle* on the I uncs to morrow run bo cured to day by HALE'S HONEY or lloREHOCND AND TAB.
