THE YELLOW FEVER SCARE.
The Health Officer's opinion that the cases of alleged yellow fever, upon the Schooner Julius Walsh, now lying at the Union Stores, were cases of intermittent fever, is fully sustained. There were three men sick with the disease upon the vessel, but the one who died upon the schooner was not taken sick until after her arrival to port. The other two cases were taken off at Quarantine.
