Clipped From The Wilmington Morning Star
From IllempbU. I We saw a letter yesterday, received by Mr. J. H. Allen, of this city, from Mr. Jno. C. Bauman, which, after alluding to the condition of affairs in the plague-stricken city, says: "McCollum is well. I saw him yesterday at the Howard headquarters; he was nursing out of the city, Poppe has proved himself a good nurse, and a steady one,' and has gained the good opinion of the several physicians under whom he has been nursing. He left this morning for McKeczie's, a station, on the Memphis & Ohio Railroad." This is the first positive information, re ceived in reference to Mr. McCollum since the receipt of a telegram from Memphis, some weeks since, announcing his death, the correctness of the report being doubted by some at the time. .
