We are pained to note th fact that Recorder W T MONGER, of

Chattanooga, was taken down with yellow fever last Friday. His

case is reported as hopeless. Mr. MONGER has stood by his post

like a hero during the epdemic and it would be a sever loss

to Chattanooga in case he should die.Mayor CARLISLE is reported

yesterday as being down. He has "stood the storm like a brave

man, but the fever pays no respect to no one" The death rate

there during the past week has adveraged 4 per day, while new

cases adverage 10 per day. Refugees are advised not to return,

as it is thought nothing but a freeze will end the scourage.

Amoung the many deaths at Chattanooga since last reported, was

that of W T MONGER, which occured on Friday last. Mr. MONGER

was serving his second term as city recorder, and stood firmly

by his post of duty during the epdemic till last it struck him

down. Mr. MONGER was well known in this community - having went

to school here five months to Prof. BLUNT - He was a promising

young man - with extra ability - and was highly esteemed by

all that knew him. He was only 29 years of age at his death.

The Chattanooga Commercial says of him:

 It is with great sorrow we announce the death of this young

man, which took place Friday night at 7:oo O'clock from yellow

fever. Mr. MONGER, when he was between 14 -15 years of age

enlisted in the 3rd Tennessee calvary, and served with credit

during the war. He came to this place in 1872 and commenced

in the study of law under Judge TREWHITT, was in due time

admitted to the bar, and practiced his profession untill his

death. He was once appointed a cadet at West Point., but

preferred his profession. He was twice Republcian canidate for

representatives from Hamilton county, and was twice elected

city recorder. We extend our sympathies to his sorrow stricken

family and friends.
