Mr. JAMES H. HANBURY, brother of T. E. Hanbury, and J. W. McCAULEY, brother of Mrs. Rosa A. Hanbury, died recently in Memphis of yellow fever [an article on page 1 states that yellow fever had killed 10,000 throughout the country].  The former was a gallant soldier in Mahood’s division of the army of Northern Virginia, and it is enough for us to say that he died like a man, at his post of duty.  Of the latter the Memphis Appeal says:

It gives us much pain to announce the death of Mr. J. W. M’Cauley, who was one of the most intelligent, experienced and attentive of all the Howard nurses.  Mr. M’Cauley came to the bedside of the writer of this paragraph when we were first taken with the fever.  He administered such remedies as his own intelligence suggested, holding the fever in subjection until the arrival of our physician, the good Dr. D. D. Saunders.  He remained with us through the critical hours until the fever was entirely subdued, when he received intelligence that one of his own household had been stricken down.  We advised him to go to his family, which he did, but too late to save his dear little boy.  Another of his children was stricken down, and the father remained with it until it had convalesced, and was himself attacked with the malady.  He was physically exhausted; so much so that the best medical attention failed to arrest the deadly work of the disease, which steadily invaded his system until death ensued yesterday.  He leaves a wife and two children, to whom we extend our heartfelt sympathies in the loss of the dear husband and devoted father.
