The New York “Times” asks:

this part will not soon be forgotten.
MOVING AND AFTERWARD.
We rapidly forget evils that have
passed, in the first intensity, and
therefore the many persons who
have been obliged to change their
quarters recently are presumably
happier this day than they were on
1 “blue Tuesday.” Moving in Au-
J gusta is not quite so serious a thing
( after all as it is in large cities, w’here
, pushing and scrambling cause very
often serious difficulties. But, un
der the best of circumstances, unless
indeed it be a transfer from squalor
to elegance, from a rookery to a
palace, it is a sore trial to body and
mind, not to speak of furniture and
glass ware. Our sympathies go out
more particularly to the female
members of the household. To them
it is no joke. Pater familias is gen
erally satisfied with the reflection
that he has to pay the money for the
move, and so has business up town
that day. He dines at a restaurant
or hotel, and contrives to get to his
new habitation as late as possible.
But the poor little mater fa
milias has stood like a Trojan
from early morn till after noon
directing the draymen, watching
jealously every disarranged article,
and vowing audibly or secretly that
“ this is positively the last time she
will ever undertake such a job.”
She has forgotten how often that
oath has been previously made and
broken. But “ this time” she means
it or thinks she does. She has to
play nurse perhaps—nurses always
get sick on moving day—and be
tween one anxiety and another her
distraction is almost complete. She
has provided a cold lunch for the
children but eats nothing herself
until every article has been safely
transferred. Then she abandons va
cant premises to commence a battle
royal with the newly occupied domi
cile. What a chaos there is to bring
into order I And yet how bravely
that little woman tackles it! Here
she is helping put up a bed or put
down a carpet; washing this thing
or arranging that. The work to
complished is enormous, but her en
ergy is imparted to her assistants,
and pretty soon matters get into
something like ship-shape. Then our
little lady sinks down half exhausted
but comparatively happy, and the
“thank God it is almost done !” as
sumes proportions at once intense
and devotional. Then, about supper
time, the lord of creation stalks in
and assumes an air of supreme im
portance as ifhehad himself achieved
all these wonders.
Well, the worst is over for a year
anyhow, so far as moving is concern
ed, and we hope all of our readers
who had experience in this matter
are pleased with their change of base.
The Hot Wave Recedes.
The fever, although abating
in cases, is not as malignant as it
was several days ago. It gradually,
as the cool North winds greet us, be
comes milder, and one can judge
from the death rate, if correctly re
ported, that persons who take it
from this time on, have at lest two
chances out of three of getting over
it. Good nursing, with a firm de
termination not to give up, in addition
to simple remedies, is two thirds of
the game. Our people have lost all
the appearance of panic, and are
now cooly awaiting “their turn,” as
it were, like the soldier who goes out
on picket knowing not whether he
will ever meet his comrades again.
Citizens, who have gone to the country,
expecting to avoid the scourge, are
returning, knowing it is useless to
remain where there are no phy
sicians, no medicines, and, in fact,
nothing to alleviate the suffering of
the distressed humanity being out
of the reach of succor. The death
rate and new cases, consequently,
may be increased thereby, but our
hopes lie in the early appearance of
of frost, which undoubtedly will be
here by sth or 10th of October. The
extremely early Spring and the ex
cessively hot Summer, give excellent
indications of this fact. At least,
we all fervently pray for White Jack,
who will be the annihilator of the
