—According to the latest advices from Pensacola, no cases of yellow fever had occurred in that city, and notwithstanding some reports to the contrary, a careful inspection from house to house has detected none in the villages, outside of the grounds belonging to the Naval Station. But few new cases have occurred within the Naval Station during the past week, and it is thought that the disease is on the decline there. No cases are known to exist in any other places in our country outside of quarantine stations to which they may have been taken from infected ships.

It is said that an epidemic form of dysentery of considerable severity is prevailing at Bybalia, in the northern part of Mississippi, from which over sixty deaths have already occurred.
