NO YELLOW FEVER
Dr. A. Mercier, stepped into the office of The Board Of Health on Saturday morning, and stated that he had been invited by another physician to look at a case of yellow fever, that of a child born in new Orleans, and which had never left the city. He had seen the child and found that it was suffering from a severe case of malarial fever, although it was reported at the office of the Board Of Health as a yellow fever case.
Dr. Mercier states that he has practiced here since 1841. In 1853, while in charge of the New Orleans Infirmary, he had 350 cases at one time in that institution, therefore he thinks he has some experience, but he declares most emphatically that he has never yet seen a child, born here and residing here all the time, attacked by yellow fever.
CHARITY HOSPITAL
Eleven new cases since last report and two deaths.
Amongst the 466 cases reported up to date at the office a the Board Of Health are 121 of children under 10 years of age and 17 colored persons. In No17 St, Louis Street where a death from yellow fever occurred, the sanitary officers who were sent by Dr. Landry, sanitary inspector, to disinfect the premises, met with such resistance. om the part of the occupants they were forced to retire.
He reported the fact to Dr. Choppin, president of the Board Of Health, who ordered that an affidavit be made against the parties.

INCREASE IN THE FEVER EXPLAINED
The ostensible increase of new cases of yellow fever at 134 on Wednesday, at 12 m. is not considered by the health authorities a real increase of the proportion, but is ascribed to the fact that a number of physicians reported the accumulated cases of several days. One physician on Tuesday afternoon, presented a report of 21 cases, extending over a period of nearly a week. On Thursday morning but 22 cases had been reported at the office of the Board Of Health.
