Yellow Fever at Rio tie Janeiro.

The Tainui, which arrived at Plymouth on March 18 from New Zealand, on calling at Rio de Janeiro found the yellow fever raging there with great virulence. The deaths from the disease were averaging 100 per day. A panic existed among the inhabitants. There was groat difficulty in procuring shore labor to work the ships. The city residents who had the means had fled to the adjacent hills. The Royal Mail Company’s steamship Atrato, due at Southampton to-day, was denied entrance to the ports of Montevideo and Buenos Ayres on arriving there from Rio. An Argentine] man-of-war was sent out to meet the Atrato to prevent her approaching the capital of the Republic. What cargo the Atrato had for Montevideo and Buenos Ayres she was obliged to take hack to Rio. Her passengers to Buenos Ayres were allowed to proceed under quarantine to a lazaretto at that port. They were at first ordered to be detained for twelve days under quarantine. An order was afterwards sent from the Argentine Government to detain them under quarantine ten days longer. When last heard from they were undergoing their twenty-two days’ quarantine, Yellow fever broke out on board the Atrato during her passage from Rio to Buenos Ayres, and she had two deaths among her passengers from the disease. — ‘ Press.’
