Probably Fatal Illness of Secretary Floyd.
A Washington Correspondent of the St. Louis Republican says:
“I regret to report the continued ill health of Secretary Floyd, who is now sojourning at the Military Asylum, near this city. His late trip to Virginia seems to have had but little effect upon his disease, and his friends are seriously apprehensive he will not recover. A member of the Cabinet, who visited Gov. Floyd yesterday, in the country, expresses the opinion that his disease will probably terminate fatally. His family are anxious for him to retire from the Cabinet, and he may do so at an early day should his residence in the country not produce a change for the better.”
