DREADFUL. trIDEMIU.—ACCOUntS from Nor
folk, Portsmouth, and Gosport, Virginia, give
a melancholy picture of the condition of those
cities, occasioned by the ravages of the yellow
fever. From 25 to 50 deaths,occur daily at
Norfolk and fron 10 to 15' at Portsmouth, and
this, too, though all who can possibly get
away have left the infected district's. The
greatest suffering prevails—many of the sick
having no persons to take care of them in
consequence of the panic. The , • streets are
deserted and business for the most part sus
pended. Large amounts of money have boon
collected in various parts.of tho Union to ad

from the disease of the same name f iteretolore

GREAT OUTRAGE.-WO learn from the cor
respondence of the Philadelphia, Ledger that
a man named Patterson, twenty-one years of.
age, was brought to Chester county prison on
Wednesday night. last, upon n charge of com
mitting one of the most fiendish outrages ever
perpetrated, in attempting first to violate the
person of ayoung female acquaintance, and
then.to murder her. The man resides in West
Whiteland township, near the West Chester
Railroad, and resides with .a farmer named
Thomas Hoskins. The outrage was perpetra
ted on the evening of Wednesday, in a lonely
spot, and the female was left in a condition
which he doubtless supposed to be lifeless—
the murder being designed to destroy all
evidence of his guilt. The female in question
and who at present is lying in a most precari
ous position, also resides with Mr. Hoskins,
as does Patterson.
It appears that on Wednesday afternoon, a
female acquaintance of Miss Workman resid
ing at the Steamboat Station, called to make
a visit and remained until evening, Ithen she
returned home. Miss Workman accompanied
her for some distance, and they were escorted
by Patterson. After separating from her
friend, Patterson and Atiss Workman return
ed homewards. The path leads diagonally
across the field east of the Steamboat and
then across two or three other fields to the
West Chester Railroad. Half way between
the two roads, and but a short distando from
a house, Patterson attempted to take liber ! .
ties, but meeting resistance, he resorted to
force; afior a struggle he threw her 'to the
ground, beat, her on the head, bruised her
neck, and whether his purpose was anon
plit•hed or not, left her in almost a lifeless
condition. Patterson went back to the Steam
boat Hotel on the Columbia Railroad, rind
there stated that as he and Miss Workrimn
were going along, they met two men, one' of
whom seized him and held him while the
other seized the young woman, Miss Work
man; and that notwithstanding his efforts a
wanton outrage was comiiiitted on Miss W.,
and that she was beat and murdered. Mr.
Whitohill, in company with two others, went
to the place described by Patterson,•and there
they found the young woman 'in a most de-,
plumbic) condition: She was barely conscious
of her condition and able to describe the out
rageous conduct of Patterson, who will proba
bly meet with his deserts. Her case was con
sidered very critical- from fracture of the
skull and other injuries.
