In answer to a card which appeared in thft Aralanche of yei-terJay, Mr. J. M. Keating, cf the Ari'KAU Irishman, full of t-j m-p.Uhy for Lu race, fearing only to do wroutf and &Iv.aj s dt-sirous of dointf rij lit, refuse to bo responsible for what Air. jihn Lilly ahi-ume4 is an insult to tie Irish people. -Always prompt to rt'Hcnt a slur, slight or in-Bult to them, Mr. Keating is incapable ot either, personally or professionally. Taken in, he regrets the publication of the communication in question. We Lave reached the end of the tl ird week of the epidemic and confront a sad Array of fig-urea attesting the severity with which the fevT lias prevailed with u- The new cases yefcteruay numbered 1"2, ol which 12 are white and 2-i are colored, the deaths being TO, of which 54 are white and tr coloreil. This brings the total number ol canes to date to 1 14- and the deaths to 4 IS, which is Oo more than was recorded for the same number cf weeks of the epidemic of 173. These are the Cgurec, but the facts cf the dreadful tcourge no tongue can tell or pen paint. The living cf one hour are the dead of the next, und it may be (aid of all of us who are lit rc that we literally lire on the very brink of the grave. From what we Leurof the inability of the undertakers to bury the dead, we fear it will become the duty of the Citizens' relief committee to orguuiz-.' a poise for that purpose. At the Whit auore house three bodies wt re allowed to remain unburicd for twecty-fi ur hour, and Fcveral iuttaucts have reached us where the bodies of men have been found locked up in rooms which apparently lad been deserted for some hours, if not dajs. If this is permitted to go on, and the most liberal system f uiMnlectiDg is not maintained, it will be impossible by-acd-by to Ead a well man in ti.e place. The sanitary fcice arejdoing whatis possible to so limited a police. Tney need recrituts, and we therefore iep; at our suggestion that a post? be appointed for the express purrxipe of seeing that the deed are as promptly buried as tho law provides for, aud that a thorough system of disinfecting is maintained privately as well as publicly. Sulphur m alcohol should be burned in all infected Loav.s, and chloride of lime aud cotpras as weil as carbolic acid should hi used to disinfect the excreta of the sick, and the clothes ind bed-clothes, of the der.d, as atjpresenl, should be burned. Notuino that ws have yet published gives o striking a masura of the extent and effect of the present epidemic as the fact that th'-re are seven of the Dominican Sisters sick of the fever, contracted in llu performance of their duties as; that three of them one a young and beauif jl woman, consecrated to a nobl.s life hav.! died, and that four of the Catholic clergy L.ivj been carried to tb-ir graves, victims of duties piously performed so long as they could attend to them. Fattiers Walsh and Mahcr, of St. Bridget's, aud Fathers Dokel und M '(J airy, of St. Peter's, after throe weeks of untiring efforts in .behalf of their parishioners, and while in the niidit of great useful-' ness, were stricken down, and have raid the penalty of nature. Father Walsh wa the first priest of St. liridget'; ia fact.he built the parish up to what it is, being assisted lor the past four or five years by Father Maher. Fathers M'Uairy and Bokel bad been for the pat few years laboring iu St. Peter's parish, under the pastoral direction of Father Kelly, who, we are glad to record, is still at his post, like many other veterans of 1S7J, doing his duty as fully and as nobly as in that year of sorrow. Is our is.ue of the twenty-ninth we published a comtuuaication signed "Irish and Xegroea," which threatened the city in caae there was not a fair distribution of the rations provided by the government. We published this ai a prouounced expression of threats that tad been made and ju-t as it came to us, without any idea of reflecting upon our Irish felloe-citizens, who have suffered so severely by the present and past epidemics. We have no idea that an Irishman bad anything to do with it or would countenance the carrying into effect of the threat therein contained. Law-abiding, the Iri'sh people of Memphis . have always been, and they can be relied upon in any emergency to protect the property and secure tho safety of the c.ty. Tnis much h u'mi from ourselves to our Irish fellow citizens. Thfy oujzht to know the Al'J'KAl. well enough to have full faith iu it and to know that it is now, as it always has b-en their frieud end their out-kpoken champion. And so it will always be. We deeply regret to learn that Fathers Uiordan and M'Nauura, of St. Patrick's church, have been taken down with the fever. Both have been reidtnfs cf Memphis lor mme years, and to the untiring ttertions of ihe, ve believe; the eisteni.e and growth of St. Patrick's pariah is largely due. Father Kiordan, Lfsides being pastor of fcit. Patrick', is vicar-general of the diocese. Bi en. iks for the volunteer doctors are very much needed. I! "ing strangers, who are uu-aciuaiuU-d with the city, if supplied with baggies they could take boys with them who know the streets, who could drive for them, and thu save a great deal of time now consumed by tii.'iu iu hunting up and walking to luid froji their ca!lJ. Who will supply them f Wt are glad to bj able to iitate that both General W. J. Smith and Colonel Butler P. Anderson, the foremost heroes of the terrib'e epidemic, are doing well and bid fare to recover. We sympathise with (leneral Smith ia the loss of Lis son, a bereavement which aJ Is ti hi-i trials end inake; his burden heavy indeed. We publish to-day a synopsis of the business of the year which ended yesterday. It is as much as our present space will permit or the condition of tha community will justify, and is a tu jst gratifying exhibit, one that justified the predictions for tho coming year, rO ruthlessly upset by trie prevailing epidemic: a We suggest to the citizens' relief commit- iee tha nroorietv of ODenintr a retreat for the N-vivor who have had their clothing and Ut,'8WUJOe4 UV, WUSTUCUWJfi vibome to go to, Thr are tevftral a ci4Aii ot that a1"" iicr,-' - , . now a d-1 THE FEVER A1JHOAI). 231 -w fa- and 4S Deaths In w Orleans Yefterday 204 w Case and 10 Deal lis In Yiekuburg 350 Cases and 4S Deaths In Port fiibson, Miss.

JOHN lONOVAK H13 hEASONS FOR NOT JOINING HIS FAMILY We copy the following card from the Nashville American, ot yesterday: My attention has been directed to several extracts from the Memphis press (more especially the .4 n-liiru ftt) which has appeared in your columns for the past few days. It is with extreme reluctance and pain that I appear in print at this time, but at the reouest or many friends here I am Induced to lay before the public a few facts that may show and account for my conduct. I have, at this date, addressed a few lines to tho Memphis press simply reqirestlug a suspension of opinion until the passion, prejudice and excitement of the present shall have passed away, and when the terrible malady, now so dreadfully affecting Memi.hls, sha'.l have subsided, I will then fully; aud In detail, lay before them facts Justifying my course. I am Informed that it has been charged that I was not in Memphis during the present sickness and that I had abandoned my family. Now to the facts. I left Memphis two weeks ago hist Tuesday, In company with gentlemen some of whom are now In Niushville to attend the gubernatlonal convention. After the labors of same I left tor Memphis on Sunday, the eighteenth Instant, arriving in Memphis early on Monday morning, finding my family all well. I remained with them until the Wednesday evening following. I had no intention then of leaving my home or family un-fl the morning of Wednesday, when 1 received information that Colonel W. W. Vaughan, president of the Brownsville narrnw-guage railroad was dead. I communicated the fact to my wife, she having a very large stock interest in this railroad, amounting to more than thirty thousand dollars, aud the largest Individual stockholder. With her concent and advice I left Memphis on V.Vdnesuay evening, the twenty-urt Instant, lor the purpose and with the understanding that 1 was to ti'ke charge of the road nnd secure a home lor my family in Brownsville. The fact of my belny In Memphis at me time stated can be corroborated by Mayor Fllppln, Chief .Athy and Mr. Tom O'siilllvan, liijuor dealer, on Main street, and 1 have no doubt many others I do not remember. I arrived In Brownsville on Wednesday night, put up at the Exchange hotel, kept by Mr. Whltemore. Next day 1 met Dr. Watklns, Mr. Slur-ley and Mr. H. W. Bond, officers of tne narrow-gauge rallrotd We 'i Lid noi get a fjuorum of our dlrocioi-s, owing to the f tit that lionie were absent, others living lilleen or twenty miles In the country. We concluded to call a meeting for the following Monday. They urged u;on me to remain, saying It was scarcely wo t;i w'lile to go to Memphis for a tew days. I consented to remain. I staved to these gen-Uemen that tn pui vose of my visit was to take charge of the road ar-i secure a home for my family These tacts can l-e corroborated by reference to f l'.ber of the well J.-nown gentlemen On the twenty foiuth Instant i reee.ed Information oi my wife's belnrf taken s-ck. It w is physically impossible for me to go dowa to Memphis on this day, and the ntvt day being Sunday, there v;;s no train down, until evening, mine meantime-, a telegram announced my wile's and child's death, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. AI the Whltemore House it w;ls well known I was uuUe unwell with violent headache, tever and Irritation of IU6 3loua-H- -" tjlnmry sympu...- - j --- ireeiy and applying Ice night and day. These facts are well-known to Mr WLlUmore and his hmiseke"!-, Mrs Lilloit. While llng In this condition l wrote and telegraphed to many of my friends that my family were In distress, and to aid them. Feeling assured of the charity, liberality and resources of tne Howards, I knew the surviving members of my family would receive proper caie and attention, and situated as 1 was without means I could accompll-h no more for my children. My affairs were in a very complicated condition, and in the event of my contracting the disease and death, all would have been lost to any surviving members of my family. These anl other reasons were the actuating motives of rrly conduct. In my onl and conscience I feel I have committed no -rlme, and to the irreat Searcher of the secret of all hearts 1 commit myseir when I shall be judged Ly a higher tribunal than all earthly. I would like to close here and be siKired a painful and humllat-Ing duty, but the question has l)een so often asked me that I am forced to answer In this public manner. I am asked why did 1 not move my family out or the Infected district sooner? My answer is simply this: I had not, nor could I g-t sufficient means to do so. and provide for them for thirty or sixty days. The outside world may have thought dillere-cL I have lived in Memphis twenty years. I have occupied positions of wealth. and altluenee. but my more Intimate trie-ids. some here to-day. know that 1 havi ten in great pecuniary embarrassment and distress for a law years. Whan I left Nash-virie for home on the eighteenth Instant, weio It not for the liberality of thi.t true, noble and charitable citizen, Mike Bums, Esq. of your city, who advanced me fifty dollars on my note for sixty days, I would not have had means to pay my expenses home, nor a dollar to buy necessaries for my LuulUj. May God bless him. If others of means of my own Xellow-townsinen had been aa litttrnl, I might be in adlftefoot poUI'7i to-day. And now I have already occupied too much jour valu-nble paos. 1 hoie I may be spared the i .Onfut u.t of again addressing you on a painful suOject. Any coiiimuuicaUou d-tressed to ilie car of Mentis.

Bales, as Compared with .'is4.:ss For the Year Previous Stock on Hand Only i54 Bales Total Crop for the Year Estimated al 4,-G!:j,(MK Bales. The cotton season of lb77 73 opened under uafavorable auspices, the previous August having been one of declines and foreign ad vices predicting low prices tor tha mooniing yearowintfto bud trado there. The prediction proved correct, for while the lowest price of middling in Memphis during the sear-on of 176-77 was lOi'c, curing the season just passed it was lOe. The season opened with the depression caused by railway strikes, mobs and interrupted transit; war was Koinr on in Turkey, and it wa3 feared England would become involved; in Manchester the depression was extreme; at O.d-baoi some of the niilLt were running only four days a week; India was weighted down with an over supply of goods. A Liverpool August circular said: "We do not remember to have seen trade in a more helpless state." At the opening of the season cotton came in so slowly that fears of a deficient crop were expressed, but this did net help prices, aud on the second of April cotton in Memphis was down to 9Jc for middling', while it was never lower than lOJc the season before. SEPTEMBER. Light receipts and unfavorable ciop reports, with damage from worms, and wltn eautlous buying, some advance occurreil. In the Memphis market September opened with mldulliig at 1chc; closed at IOVhc; against ilUr?10Vac a year betore. Lowest price during the month, IOSmc; highest, 11c; total sales. HOO bales; total recelpis, 20 1 5 bales, against 12.HU5 in 187H-V, and oW4 In 1875-0. Total te ceipts at the ports from September 1 to the end of the last olllclal week, 8:i,773 bales; a decrease of 137,473 bales from the year previous. OCTOBER. The backward state of the crop awakened surprise, and exporters boqght more freely. The weather was excellent for picking, the quality of the cotton go M, and the staple excellent Intense dullness of trade caused prices to decline during the month, aided by more liberal receipts toward the close.

Weather continued good for picking. On the third the first killing frost of the season. Buying active; on the sevenlh filOO bales was sold. Watts's Liverpool circular said: "We have rarely known such a collapse in cotton, such a sudden change from conlidence to want of confidence." Thurkish war causing anxiety.

DECEMBER. Prices opened and closed at the same figure this mouth, with only slight tlactuaUons between. The war and other dilllcultles were iacietised by the effect of the trouble in Frar.ce, President MacMahon provoking public feeling by attempts at reaction against the republic The fall of Plevna had a good effect as pointing toward the closa of the war, but England, summoning parliament to meet, hnd a contrary ellect Watts & t'o.'s Liverpool circular reported distress and expected bankruptcy among the cotton manufacturers.

JANUARY. During January the price of cotton was downward; the mouth opened with ba t weather and cotton-picking ceased. The decreasing price of sliver ait-ded to the heavy Manchester difficulties, but trade was bad In every portion or the mercantile world. Thefts and defalcations and Increasing bankruptcies at home added to the business embarrassments. Increased cotton manufacturing in India was against the English markets. The month opened with middling lu Memphis at 105ac; closed at HlLic, against 1 2c and 12l-jc a year Defore; lowest price during the month, K1I4C; highest, IIW4C; total sales, 51,000 bales; total receipts, 52.U07 bales; total receipts from September 1. 287.1P5 bates, against :UO,430 In 1870-7 and :.."(, 820 bales In 1875-0; total receipts at United States ports from September 1, 3,10t,:i54 bales a decrease of 31,788 bales from 1870-7. aa FEBRUARY. During all F'ebruary prices fluctuated only lc. Russian approaches toward Constantinople caused increased expectation of English interference, and the latter nation sent a Meet up the Dardanelles. There were complaitits In Liverpool of losses from American cotton this year being unusually damp, making the real price higher than the quoted. Indian, Egyptian and Brazil receipts were light, and American cotton was becoming the main reliance as before the war. The ptissage of the sliver bill caused some disturbance In commerce on this side, and the low price of silver, and its ellect on Indian exchange, continued to affect Manchester. The month closed amid gloomy influences. The opening Memphis price of middling for the month was lu'c, closed at loSuc, against 12c. and ilSc the year before; total month's sales! 54,150 bales; total receipts, 37.H83 bales; total receipts since September 1st. 2:12,071 bales, against 350.028 In 1870-7. and 405,181 In 1875-0; total receipts at United States ports since September 1, 3,557,304 bales, an increase of 1233 bales over the previous year, being the first month In which receipts had equalled those of the year before. klAECH. QThe month opened with an advancing tendency, until in two weeks middling quoted llitjc, then declined to 10c Ht toe close; the advance was the consequence of peace bjttween Russia and Turkey, then succeeded feas ot a new war from the dissatisfaction of England and Austria wltu the terms of peace. Watts & Co.'s Liverpool circular stated: "Our market Is governed more by war news than by supply and demand." The New Orleans I'vuiune remarked: "Everything favors cottou but trade and polities, and until these improve the staple is bound to drag." The New York Hulvtin said: "There is, t be sure, .1 deficiency in the world's visible supply, but it is a question with many whether the shrinkage In consumption be not as great or greater." The month closed with cotton in Memphis down to l()c for middling, and gloom and depression was universal In the world's cotton centers. At the opening of the month middling in Memphis quoted JCUc; at the close, 10c, against 1 lic and 11c the year previous; lowest price daring the month, 10c: highest, 10V-e; total month's sales, 48,550 bales; total recelpts"of the month, 3'.,427 ba'es; total receipts since beo tember 1st, 372, 140 bales, against 308,175 bales In 1870-77, and 452,387 iu 18 (5-70; total receipts at United Stales ports from September 1 st, 3.875, 1 1 o bales, an Increase of 120,!3 over the preceding year. APRIL. This month saw cotton down to the Invest point for yers. On the tecond iuidddng n Memuhls quoted '.iThc. The support given to the English policy with Russia by other nations levlved confidence, but increasing receipts prevented any materlul ri6 in price. In our market, up to this mouth, exporters had been the largest purchasers; now spinners became the largest At no time of the season was much done by our home speculators: the lnlluences were unfavorable to them.

MAY. This month saw some lecuperatlon, and prices advanced; war i.iaiters kept extK)rtersquiet, but spinners bought more freely, although reductions and stiikes were troubling thetu. The low visible supply and diminishing stocks strengthened cotton, but the consumption was diminished also. Weather and planting news continued to u-oo.i.

JUNE. During June the price fluctuated only a cent In our market receipts fell ofT, and the stock was reduced from 10,000 to 50OO bales. An agreement for the European powers to meet In congress re moved anxiety about war. Favorable crop reixirts continued to be received, and an expectation f rom their forwardness, grew up that receipts would be liberal In August, an expectation that subsequently worked against prices. June 7th the first cotton-bloom arrived from Concordia, Mississippi. Strikes having decreased stocks, Manchester showed some lmpiovement. The supply of cotton lu Memphis was far below the demand; 100,000 bales more than received could have been sold during the season. During the whole of this month exporters took only 1 00 bales from the Memphis mai ket. At the opening of the p onth luiddlii.g In Memphis quoted at 1 lc, closed at the same; lowest price during June lie, highest ill, against Io-'-kc and lli-tc the year before; toul sales ot month, 4075 bales; total receipts, SWKrt bales; total recetp s since September 1st, 407,408 bales against 3M0,Pi8 bales in 1870-7. and 481.845 bales In 1875-0; total receipts at UHlted States ports from September 1st. 4,407 ,468 bales, an lncreae of 243,205 bales over the same time the preceding year.

On tie last day of the month he first new sale of Mississippi valley cotton arrives in New Orleans. Iu Liverpool the price advanced i wthaa slnoe the previous December. In our market holdings for sae were reduced to 2000 bales, and holders were very stiff. The New York VinrUt reported the world's visible supply n85.nOO bales less trn a rear ago, and oon.

During this mo"th tb bale of Memphis cotton at the Paris exposition received the first and the New Orleans bale the second prize.

AUGUST ' ; 1 opened with a new Influence bearing on the cotton market yellow-fever. We have mentioned that the fcrncardnesof the crop bad led to exp elation that new cotton would arrive In the market at an unusu ally early time. This would prevent cotton from advancing ou account of low stocks to the extent that had been anticipated. The appearance of yellow-fev-r, by restricting shipments from the effect of quarantine, prevents cotton reaching tne market lively, and thus the advantage of a forward market Is neutralized. The fever raging in our city, and shipping being almost impostdble. August was necessarily a month of only few and small transac tions, as is usual lu August, there were aeood many croaking accounts of the crop started In the market, but they exercised but little Influence. Sides during the month were everywhere to spin ners. Diu a certain amount or speculation was believed to be Included. The bulls had the general control of the markets, but trade In Manchester caused some weakness In Llverr 00L The end of the month, and of the season of 1877-8 with It, comes In gloom and r"lef on no-count of the learful ravages of the avenger of dirt the yellow-fever.

The value of the receipts of this yea r was obtained by reckoning the cotton on a basis of low middling at 10.4ac a pound. In comparing present quotations for upland cotton with those of ante-war times, it must be remembered that later changes in grade have made the present middling to correspond to the "low middling" of 1800. The average weight of this year's cotton bales Is 488 pounos per bale, which Is four pounds above the average of last year. Average value per bale, Sol. ine total reported sales of the season amounted to 400,100 bales, of which 218,575 bales were taken for foreign exports. Memphis Annual Cotton Statement.
