Yellow fever. --There was only one new case of yellow fever at Wilmington last Friday. A letter from Newbern, North Carolina, says that there have occurred there in one day--twenty-four hours--one hundred and nineteen deaths from yellow fever. This is not, of course, the average; but, even as a single instance, shows a terrible mortality. The Yankee troops have all been carried into the woods. A correspondent of the Macon Confederacy, writing from Charleston under date of October 8th, says: "The yellow fever is on the increase. The mortality among children is very large. Some neighborhoods seem to be more affected than others — especially is this the case around the arsenal. Its introduction, I am told, has been owing to the want of proper precaution in allowing blockade runners too free access to the city on arriving from Nassau and other infected ports. Captain E. A. Rabb, post commissary of Charleston, has died of the fever. "
