fifth ef the month,to use the language of an eye
witness, the city suddenly seemed like a•town
' besieged with shells and red hot allot.' Re
ports of fever were now beard in every direr-'
den. In the morning numerous cases were I
reported in John street and New Slip, before!
noon several were taken down in Cliff street,
and ere night the pestilence was raging with
violence in Rider street and Eden's Alley. A
universal panic now seized the people; limbs
trembled, countenances turnedpale, and'hearts l i
fainted. - The general impulse Was to flee at
once from'the city, and thousands simultane

prepared for removal: .
1 On the twenty-sixth, says the eye-witness
already_ quoted, ' every vehicle, from the hum
cart to the gilded carriage, was put in re-

Early the following niorniug Mr. Steel was

Vie progress ofltbe foyer, and passing near 1
Peek Slip, he obseryed a woman with a child I
in her arms hastening toward a Connecticut I
; .Sloop, which seemed about ready to leave the
1 - dock., On a nearer approach be perceived with
i surprise that it was Mrs. LUdlow, a neighbor
who kept a threaa.and needle -anatanoy store
ncaliy opposite his residenee.on Liberty street.
Why, Mrs. Ludlow,' said Steel, 'are you
going Out of the city?'
Oh, lord a rnas.iy, yes. Mr. Steel,' said the
woman, ' as fast as this vessel can carry me ;
but there' s so little wind, Pm afraid we Shall
.-ro dreadful slow. I wish it . blowed harder.
But where is Mr. Ludlow? said Steel,
I dues he go with you ?'
' Lord a massy, Mr. Steel my man is took
! down with the fever, and t hat's what makes
me in sich a hurry ko get away, before the ba
' by and I ketches it.'
' ' Why, Mrs. Ludlow, is it . possible your bus
! band has got the fever
' Yes, he's keeled up with it very bad,' said
Mrs. Ludlow . he was,reported this morning,
and the doctor says. he's very malignant.'
Is it possible Mrs. Ludlow,' said Steel
very Earnestly, that you are going away to
leave your husband in such a situation ?
• Oh, I couldn't stay for all the world . , Mr.
Steel; I couldn't stay if you'd give me this
whole city ;. I should ketch the feVer and die,
I know I should, and the baby too.'
' nut, Mrs.. Ludlow, isn't it your duty to
stayand take ear of your husband in 'such
an awful hour? ,Who is to nurse him and
talc care of him ?';.
' The Lord kohws; said tae fancy-goods
dealer ; ' it's no use for me to star, a nd for-us
all to die tdgether,: I'Ve done the best I could
for him. I've only locked up to store, and left
everything - there Was 'in the house for him to
use, except a few:nice things that - be wouldn't
want., and them I put into the store. And
then I spoke to the negro woman in the meat
door basement to go in and carry him water,
and, band him things, if begot so he couldn't
get about. I dint see what more I yould do,
Mr. Steel. And if he should die, Mr, Steel. I
wish you would lOck the house up and write
the word tb Stonington '
With that she hastened on board the sloop,
which was already casting off from the pier
and making sail, and Mr. Steel turned his•steps
homeward with increased anxiety, since the
disease had broken out in his own immediate
neighborhood. The news of Ludlow's sickness
bad spread like a flash through the street; and
on Steels reaching borne, he found. the neigh
borhood filled with consternation and tenor.
Many had suddenly made up their minds to
leave the city, and were huruir'
pale countenances, making
hasty- departure.. Among the
resolved to leave the city t}l
were Thornton and Burdett.

family to Greenwich.

' Well, hadn't 'we better se:

This, proposition was. ass(
Steel' and the little boy was di,.
dingly. In less than an hrax the two families
were on their way to G enwicb yillake, and
Steel was by the bed-ode Of Ltalow, mtnister
ing to the sick m: s Wants. He found. him
violently attack i by the disease in its worst
form. The ,ysician, who had been in to see
him, thou there was but very little chance
fir his recovery. But Steel was unremitting
in his attentions to him; he visited him three
or four times a day, and procured a nurse to
tike constant care of him.. In a few, days he
had the satisfaction to perceive that-Ludlow's
f6verhad passed the crisis, and that he was
beginning to recover. Thinking ; now, that.
Mrs. Ludlow might be induced to return and,
'lake care of her husband during his weakness,
he sat down and wrote her a line, that her
husband bad ao far recovered that them was ,
little:danger of anyone tatting the fever of him,
and it being very difficult ;to obtain a nurse to I
stay with him, desiring he to return and tend l i
to Min. • In
_order that she might be more sure
to get `the letter, he directed it to the Post
Master at Stonington, who by 'the - next lAA
returned' him an answer, that Mrs. Ludlow was
dead ; and buried, having been taken down with
the fever on the same.dayishe arrived at Sten—
ingtun, which. terminated fatally in a very few
days 4 ,
