The fever in Wilmington.

--There were seven deaths in Wilmington, N. C., of fever on the 6th, and three new cases. The Journal says:

‘ We have the authority of the best doctors — those longest familiar with the fever — for saying that persons cannot return here with safety until after the occurrence of black frost--such frost as will form ice, and the actual formation of ice within the limits of town will be the only satisfactory and conclusive test. Whenever such a state of things is present we shall promptly notify the public and our absent citizens, and heartily invite them back; but as things now stand we earnestly request them to stay away yet a few weeks longer. They cannot return with safety.
