"Bronse John."

--A New Orleans paper thus discourseth:

‘ Talking about Bronze John, yellow fever and vomit, we are reminded of the last intelligence from Havana, being up to the 4th inst., bringing accounts of a French man-of-war steamer arriving from Vera Cruz with twenty-seven cases of yellow fever or vomit on board. There were advices of the arrival at the Balize a few days since of a French vessel-of-war, but we are not informed whether she had any vomit on board.--However, the season of the year is near at hand for yellow fever at Vera Cruz, Tampico, Havana, and other places. If Mr. Bronze John should be introduced to the Yankee squadron below the forts, we trust the old fellow will have a good harvest. Mississippi water will help him along. In the ever memorable year of 1853, the first cases of yellow fever in our city were previous to the middle of the month of May, occurring on board of a vessel from St. Thomas. Everything augurs well for our old crony, Mr. Bronse John. A very mild winter, warm spring, with the expectation of about 100,000 fresh Northerners and Northwesterners, anxious to make their first visit to the sunny South.
