They are all shaking.

--It is said that 470 of the ragamuffins that ‘"Ole Dabe"’ sent to Cairo, have been sent to the hospital in a very shaky condition, having the ‘"fever-in agne"’ most awfully. Whether the filthy condition of that filthy city or the fear of the Southern rebels caused their shaking is not reported. They have been not unaptly styled the ‘"Shaking Quakers."’
