Yesterday atternoon the Brooklyn Board of llealth held a special meeting at their rooms, cor ner of Court and Livingston streets, lor the purpose of taking immediate steps to allay the lears which many may have entertained tn regard to the reported presence of yellow fever in Brooklyn. The Health Commissioners, having made a thorough examination of the cases reported, say that they do not And any positive symptoms of yellow fever among them. Dr. C mkling said he thought it was ncccssar.v, un der the circumstances, to call the meeting, In order to correct an erroneous impression. Dr. Segur then submitted the following report:? Sir? Within tho past ten days four cases of fever, two of them fatal, have occurred, the first, two at 13 State street and Hie last two at 17 state street. One death re sulted in each houre. The two surviving patients, a boy s xtt en yean of age and a woman about twenty-five have been siclt. the former since Wednesday, the l(<th Init, 8Vd the latter since the iMth inst., and at the present time present po peculiar or unfavorable symptoms, but would bo generally considered by physicians as levers of a tnalarialiypd. The first d.ise, a Nov axed eighteen, tell sick on tne 13th and died on the 17th inst. He was treated by his physicians lor remittent lever and a death certificate given accordingly. 1 did not see the patient; the phvs'.cinn reported his death to me, and the fai t that his confidence in the correctness of his diagnosis lia<l been disturbed at the last by tl.e appear ance of the vomited matier, especially its black color I thought better to act on the mere suspicion of a deaih from yellow fever in a crowded tenement house ana neighborhood. 1 have been informed by physicians who have practised rnanv years in this Ideality that it has always been unhealthy, and that those wno sicken there are apt to tile. Accordingly I caused the prompt removal of the body, clothing, and the rumination and disinfection of tne premises. Sauitary Inspector Oolton, who has had long experience as a public health officer and has watched all developments In these cases and made care ful inquiry into their origin, does not find suffi cient ground for the opinion that yellow fever has occurred in Brooklyn. Ob the morning of the 21st No*. 3 and 4 ol these cases wore reported to me, and, with Dr Colton, I visited them. One was reported to have black vomit it, but on careful examl examinntlon I found that this was tncorrect. 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 atternoon. to conclude The three cases seen present a uni form type of (ever, and bear sufficient re-emhlance to the description of the first as to justify the opinion that it was not yellow lever. Dr. A. M. Bell, of this city, late Commissioner of Quarantine, and familiar with yellow fever from experience in the United States .Navy, does not And in many visits to these cases 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 or fellow fever have recently occurred in our city has obtained a wide circulation, It has been deemed proper to conveno this extraordinary session of this Hoard, and in order to allay the anxiety such reports must occasion, it is Resolved, That from repeated personal visits upon the patients by the medical members of this Board, and t'rom consultations with medical gentlemen whose familiarity with the r! Isease renders tbfir opinions of great value, it is declared as the judgment of this Board that no casrt of yellow lever now exists or has occurred in our city during the present season. Adopted. General Jocrdan remarked that he was rather surprised at reading that the Health officers were reticent in regard to these cases. Commissioner Hutchinson did not believe It was Judicious to suppress anything. It was reported that there were several stagnant pools on Columbia, Furman and state streets, and it was decided that General Jounlan should call on the Board of City Works to-day ana have them tilled np.

Mkmi'uih, Jane 22, 1873. This was t tic hottest (lay or tlic season, the ther mometer being at 04, but the day wait bright and clear. There lias been a marked decrease In the deaths from cholera. The whole number of Inter ments were nineteen, of which nine were cholera cases. It is the general belier that the disease has run Its course bere, and will probably disappear. Reports Irom the surrounding country along the lines of railroads are still very gloomy. Nahuviu.k, June 22. 1873. The mortality to-day from cholera was flfty-two, against lllty-ntne yesterday. Tho weather has been clear and apparently Healthy all day. In Loativtllr. Louisvii.i.k, June 22, 1873. The reports of cholera in this city are entirely groundless.

It is said that six similar cases were reported last night by the Hoard of Health, and that ihejr are in the most tilthy localities. CHOLERA PREVENTIVES. Circular from the American Public Health Asportation? What 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 of the country, the American l'ublle 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 CLEANSING. The local conditions that chiefly promote the out breaks and propagation oi cholera are:? 1. Nuglectud privies. 2. Plltn-sodden grounds. 3. Foul cellars una tllthy or badly-drained surroundings Ol dwelling. 4. Koul unci obstructed house drains. 8. Decay nn? und putrescent materials, whether animal or voKetuldc. 6. Un ventilated, damp and unclcanscd dwellings and apartments. These localizing causes of cholera should be promptly and very thoroughly removed before a case of the disease appears in the town or ulstrict, and If any sonrt.es ot putrescence or oi excessive moisture remain these should be controlled by the proper cleansing, drying aud disinfection. Thorough scavenging and surface drainage, with the application at the siiue time oi quicklime aud ami coal tur or crude carbolic acid; whitewashing with Ircsh quick lime; the cleansing aud thorough drying and veutiiation of cellars, basements, cham bers and closets, aud daily carc to cleanse, flush, ventilate and purity the sources of defilement about all 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 aud bathing ol' the body. DISINFECTION AND DISINFECTANTS. The prluciplcs relating to disinfection as a means of destroying the propagating or infectious cause of cholera and arresting putreiaction are readily understood, and may be so explained to any family that the household may iusure its own immunity against the introduction an4 spread ?f the disease. For jKipular use we append a brief statement of these principles at the end oi this circular, and we respectluiiy recommend that the statement and !Uc following schedule of rules and methods be given fo the press and to all. principals ol schools, supeiinteiidents ol places of public resort, railroad depots, terries, hotels aud public institutions and to the masters of ships and steamboats aud the conductors of passenger trains throughout this Continent, believing, as we do, that by the timely aud contiuued application of these measures the prevalence of cholera may be prevented. Hut let tho iact be remembered that there can be uo sub stitutes <or thorough cleansing and trcsli air. RULES AND METUODs OK DISINFECTION. For Privies, Wati'r Closets, Drains and sewers.? fclght or ten pounds ol sulphate ol iron (copperas) dissolved m five or six gallons of water, with half a piut of crudc carbolic add added to the solution ami briskly stirred, makes tho cheapest and best disinfecting fluid lor common use. it can be pro cured lu every town and by any family, aud if the carbolic acid is not at hand the solution of copperas may be used without it. To prevent privies and water closets from be coming lnlected or oilcnslve, pour a pint ol this stroug solution iuto every water closet pan or privy seat, once or twice a day. To disinlect masses of filth, privy vaults, sewers and drains, gradually pour in this solution uutil it reaches and disinfects all the foul material. For the chamber vessels used by the sick and for the disinfection ol wound .upon which any excre uiental matter has been cast away, use the solution of 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 "deaaoil" ("heavy oil") or coal-tar or coal-tar Itsjlf; coal-tar may be used as a paint upon the walls of cellars, stables and open drains. uther disinfectants, such as the solutions of ses qulclilonde of Iron or chloride or zinc, are effectual in privies and drains and upon loul surfaces aud offensive materials. quicklime is useful as an absorbent aud dryer upon foul walls and In damp places, aud whlte wasuing with It should be practised in common tenements, factories, basements, closcts and gar rets. To disinfect the clothing or bedding defiled in any manner by excrcmental matters from the sick, throw them into a solution made as follows:? One pound of sulphate ol zinc to six or eight gal lons of water, to which add twe or three ounces of pure and strong carbolic acid? such articles to remain therein at least hall an hour; theu imme diately place tnem in boiling water, and continue boiling If the acid is not at hand, then use the solution of zinc in water. The sauie disinfecting solutioe is excellent lor bedpans and chamber vessels, and lor soiled floors or dellled surfaces. Apartments, bedding and upholstery that have been used by the sick with cholera or diarrhoea should be thoroughly cleansed and disinfected. PRINCIPLES AND DUTIES TO BE OBSERVED. 1. That thorough cleanliness, domestic and civic, aud an abundant supply of pure water are essential weans ot preventing cholera in auy household when the disease is near. 2. That general cleansing, scavenging and dis infection should be attended to In every cltjr and I town before cholera makes its appearance; and that wherever it does appear, that house aud the | exposed premises should be kept constantly dls- j lnlected. 3. That, whatever dlflerences of opinion there may be respecting the epidemic phenomena ol dlilercnt periods, the paramount importance of thorough cleanliness and dislniecttou is to be kept in mind; and that, In the words of the Chlel Medical Officer of Great Hrltain, "It appears to be characteristic of cholera, not only of tho disease In its developed and alarming form, but equally of the slightest dlarrtnea whlcu 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 iniecttng other persons is represented almost or quite ex clusively by those discharges ; that they are com paratively non-inlective at the moment they are discharged, but afterwards, when undergoing de composition, acquire their maximum tniectlve power; and that It they be cast away without pre vious disinfection, they impart their own infective quality to the excreinemal matters with which they mingle In tilth-sodden earth, or In de positories and conduits of filth, and to the eflluvla 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 soli, to wolls or other sources of drinking water, It can infect, m the most danger ous manner, very large volumes of the water; that the infective Influence of the choleraic dis charges attaches to whatever bedding, clothing and like things have been imbued wlin them, and renders these things, if not disinfected, capable of spreading the disease." 4. Cleansing and purity, skilful disinfection, tem perate habits, and wholesome diet, witli pure water and fresh ulr, are the trnsted and sure means of health and security in all places and for all classes of people when exposed to the causes of cholera. The watchword against this destructive enemy should b? ? Remove the local causes that favor the propagation of cholera, and wherever It appears let its germs be quickly stamped out by powerful disinfectants and special cleansing. PRINT CLOTH MABKET.

The Montana War Clalmi? Serious Charge Agalmt a Clerk. Much excitement lias been caused by the recent action of J. w. Butterfleld, clerk In the Second Comptroller's ofllco, In connection with the adjustment of certain Montana claim*, for the settlement of which Congress at the last session appropriated something over Ave hundred thousand dollars. These claims grew out of supplies furnished to the volunteer 1 forces operating against the rnrtiaus In 1887 by citizens of that territory. Originally they amounted to $l.ico,i)()o, but were scaled down by General James A. Hardle, Inspector General of the Army to the amout above mentioned. These claims have been in course oi settlement since the adjournment or Congress, und over three hundred thousand dol lars have already been paid. The particulrr cause of complaint against Butterfleld has its origin in the fact as alleged by various parties that I,eander M. Black, of the Territory o Montana, and A. J. Insley, of Kunsas, had given to Alexander Cummings, Adjutant General of Mon tana, $-.3,000 In vouchers, in consideration of services rendered In issuing to them the quota of the vouchers claimed by mack and Insley. when the vouchers were presented here lor pay ment by p. I.argey, of Montana, about three months ago, they having been hypothecated by Cummings to Urgcy for money advanced, Black and Insley entered a protest before Rutterfleld against the payment of tho vouchers, claiming them as their property. Chief Clerk Curtis, acting as Second Comptroller In the absonco of Dr. Ilroadhead, suggested to I.angey to have the disputo between the two parties Interest ed adjusted in Court. Ungey accordingly called on Butterfleld, when Rutterfleld gave him uiitil Wednesday of last week to procure an injunction against their payment, until the matter could be brought to a Judicial termination. Tho money had, however, on the preceding Friday, unknown to Largoy, been paid on the vouchers to Black and Insley. Tho amount was something over $lfi,ooo. It is alleged that Black and Insley had given to a certain party in Washington vouchers to the amount of $15,009 for influence with the Indian Bureau In fur therance of Indian contracts several years ago. These vouchers wcro transferred to a gen tleman in liquidation of a claim which he held ag&inst the party receiving the vouchers ironi Black ft Insley, and these vouchers were next placed In tho hands of Mlddleton ft Co., bankers, of this city, for collection. They presented them to Mr. Butterfleld, when Black ft Insley again protested against their payment to the other party, and Butter fleld then paid to Black ft Insley the amount found due according to the award of General Ilar 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 susgeslion as to judicial determination in the dis puted case would be observed. Yesterday the attention of the Secretary of the Treasury Vas called to this matter by Messrs. Wilson and Stan: ton, attorneys lor Urgcy, Mlddleton ft Co., bank ers, and by Largcy in person. The Secretary in formed those gentlemen ho would give tho matter his immediate attention and cause thor ough Inquiry into all the facts. It Is due to Mr Butterfleld to state, on his own representation, that he can satisfactorily explain his action in the premises, and is prepared to meet all charges against his integrity. The New Gold Dollar and Affairs of the Mint. A telegram was yesterday received by Dr. Lln derman, Director of the Mint, fr< ui the Superin tendent of the San Frunclsco Mint, saying there are numerous inquiries for the new trade dollar, large quantities beiug wanted lor shipment to China on the 16th July. The Director has replied that tho dies cannot bo sent to San Francisco be fore the Cth or loth of July, and therefore the de mand for the dollars cannot be immediately sup piled. lie expresses his regret that the prepara tion ol the dies has been delayed, notwithstanding his efforts in that direction. The gold coinage at the San Francisco Mint for the mouths of July and August will, according to the inloruiation from the Superintendent, be 1 $0,000,000, or $3,uoo,ooo each month. Three or four ' millions of double eagles will be recoined during this month at the 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 silver. These mctais are sent to San Francisco, where the gold is coined Into double eagles and the silver shipped to Kng 'and In bars. This year there will be coined at the three mints about forty million dollars of gold in dependent of recoinage. The recoinage is tor the purpose of making the coin conform to the recent law of Congress. v\here there is an abrasion of more than one-half or one per cent there must be a recoinage. Tho export of iroli coin is very trifling? not more than $200,000 this month. The Director of the Mint has received replies to the circular sent to all our foreign Ministers for the purpose of ascertaining the staudanl of coinage In the re spective countries to which fehoy 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 of which waa the anthem, by a choir of male voices, written by a graduate of 1800 and set to music by Dr. Stoeckel, tho instructor in music, President Porter announced his text to be found in the First. Kpistle of John, the filth chapter and tlfth verse? "Who is ne that overcometh the world bnt he that beileveth that Jesus la the Son or Gou r" TUK SBUMON. John knew Jesus iutimatcly while on earth, lie had witnessed the power of faith m Una over others, and, whatever raen think of this faith, none cau deny its power. Men tell us now that tho spiritual 'Christ must give way to a his toric Christ; that for miracles must be substituted laith in Christ's sell-denying charac ter. We hold the opposite. In the future, as In past, the necessity of this faith will not be out grown, but made moro manifest. First, to over come me world has been tho Ideal labor of thought ful men in all ages. To do i his Is to understand the laws of the universe. Man must also overcome self, and this Is the hardest task. If John had kuown Kplctetus and Plutarch he would have said that all they taught was good as Jar as it went. The difficulty Is, that we believe In a person who helps us to do good. In the second place, occasion for help has in no sense been re moved. To overcome tho world is as difficult as ever. Science, ai ts and letters to the contrary, life Is still a conflict in every individual mail. The strong mau talis In the high noon of his strength and honor. Culture enlarges onr sensibilities. Our enlarged seuFlbilitles enlarge our capacities for sin. Science must be reminded that its know ledge is limited by Infinitude. The substitutes for our old laith are insufficient. Civil ization, education, elevation of tastes by letters and arts, are elllcient, If they are so at all, us I hey teach and train. If education is to train and in spire, it must bring some personal force to attract by example, to canttvate by law. Without living persons, science and culture can accomplish very Utile. WE A KB MOVKI) BY IDEAS, but most of all we want men. otherwise ideals bc cqme idols, a tlgmcnt of the imagination. Matthew Arnold and followers believe in the study of man hood, lu the idealization of virtue. This ttiey sub stitute lor a belief in Christ. 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 the positive conclusion. A personal (Jod is the only agency by which man can over come the world. II tnls be not so, what means the faith of scientists in a mighty despot who can compel conformity with the laws of the universe ? What means tho belief of the devotees of literature in a inodelr The story oi the cross Is the old, old story, but always new to him who makes It so. We have heard it a thousand times, but when a man learns his need by some experience of his lite, It is as though glad tidings of great joy were heard and heralded as on the plains of Uethlehem. CHRISTIANITY WITH C1IKIST at the head shall never be outgrown as long as slnlul koiiIs shall crave lor sympathy. No man and no generation Of men can outgrow occasion for a laith lu cod unless they outgrow the problems of lite. The factitious differences in the way of faith promise to be removed by the growth of cultuie. While there nnver was a time in which it was so easy to deny Christ, it is yet true that never was laiih in the Sou or God so simple as now. He came to teach us to overcome the world. This conquest gained, ?ali else is gained. FAKEWKM. OF THE PIIKSIDKNT. At this point the senior class arose in their places and received the tare well of the President, lie referred to their peculiarly sunshiny and bright career in college. Death waa comparatively a stranger to them, having but, twice visited their circle, once in the early and once in the latter pai t of their course. Yet they knew what sorrow and trouble was and what was its end In this lite ? namely, the discipline of those who bear it for a better life. He wished that they might all be henceforth Christians; but If tliey did not all ac cept Christ In their early life his highest wish con cerning his beloved people was that they might at least iuherlt eternal life. Alter prayer and the singing of the 121st Psalm, the I'resld nt came out oi his pulpit, and, walking out through the centre nlsle of the chapel for the last time, lie received as he passed the grateful homage of the class of 1873.

' For over flvo weeks this section of country haa been without rain, IT we may except a slight shower several days ago. For many days Uie heat has been inteu.se, the,mercury in the Mie*> uiooictcr ranging among the nineties. For three or tour nights past no dew has fallen and the country Is suffering terribly. The hay crop on uplands Is entirely destroyed, but that en lowlands is safe yet for el week, If rain conies within that time. In some sections farmers are plowing In the meadows and sowing fodder corn, fearing tbejr will have nothing lor their stock If this drought continues, oats on rocky, dry lands are com pletely gone. Itocky and gravelly land lias turnedk as red as a fox. And the mountain tires have commenced. In the high lands on the Uudson, on St. Anthony's Nose, across to Fort Mongomery and In the vicinity of Crow's Nest hundreds of tree* have been destroyed by the flames. Friday night Are caught In the underbrush on the FIsIiaIU Mountains, five miles Iroui .silver Lake, and in less thau three hours it had run nearly Ave miles, destroying one thousand cords of wood belonging to Mr. George H. Brown, and clearing its pathway ot trees. Tho scene at night was magnificent, the crests of the mountains being lined with flame, and the whole valley beneata was tho next morning enveloped In smoke. (laiiga of men were hurried to the spot, and they fought the flro with dirt and fallows, but It is burn ing yet, and up the Hudson a smoky atmosphere prevails day and night, and the smell ol lire front burning forests and underbrush is everywhere. The catskill Mountains are almost entirely shut from view, as also Is the Ulster range of the Shu waugtinks. There have been westerly winds for many days, and as a consequence the water in tho llmison is extremely low, and navigation north of Hudson is very dlilicult.
