FEVER IN THE MAURITIUS. The Globe has, from a private source, intelligence from the Mauritius to the 6th April, to the effect that a malignant fever was raging there, paralysing commerce, impeding agriculture, and resulting in a mortality exceeding that of 1854, which carried off 7,650 inhabi- tants.- In the last six weeks the deaths in the whole colony had numbered 7,494. The fever has not been confined to the lower classes, but has penetrated the merchants' offices, the Govern- ment department, shops, &c. Nearly all the troops that were in Port Louis have been sent to Flat Island. Owing to the precautions taken, there has been but very little fever among the military. The fever, however, is of a nature that with proper precautions, and prompt and judicious remedies, does not preclude the chance of recovery. The official statement of the mortality to the 31st March showed that in Port Louis 3,025 persons had died Of fever Pamplemousses, 1,078 Riviere du Rempart, 318 Flacy, 77; Grand Port, 60; Savanna, 44; Black River, 665 Plaines Wilhems, 202 Moka, 172.
