THE CHOLERA. Dr Thome Thorne reporta that the returns re- ceived to September 12th show from Hull three noti- fications of choleraic diarrhoea, one fata. attack, and two deaths, together with one suspicious case on board a vessel in dock; and from Cieethorpes no fre,;¡h attack. A further death has taken place at Kotherham, where very active measures have been adopted. The cares at Fulham, Kensington, Mans- field, and Retford are, so far as bacteriology is con- cerned, not distinguishable from true cholera. Cer- tain other attacks judged in the same way prove to have no affinity with cholera. A medical inspector has gone to Aahbourne to confer with the local sani- tary authorities and medical officers of health. The Lantti, in La weekly statement on the progress If cnolera, calls attention to the di-tr.butiuf. or Lb i -ease a. the present lime, and to the occurence t' r al and alleged cases of cholera and ch ;i rai. die,rthcea i,i numerous places, which it regards as very significant. The late period of the year and th. iryuesa and comparative co-dneno ai thi.- reason arc factors unf-ivourab e to its epidemic ^xtenfion anc development at the present limy, and thinks we may reasonably hone and believe that the disease will no. manifest itself in any epidemic intensify in t: is joun try during this, whatever it may d) next year. Our main reliance must be placed ou situation in its broadest as well as its restricted aspects. It is prtttty weil recognised that life afanranee office-s ax* but little affected by cholera.

Thnrsdav's official report stated that a faial case had occurred at Hurst, a suburb ot AsLton- uder-Lyne, the patient having recen-ly returned form Cieethorpes, and also one at Mansfield, Nc .t, iJlg- hamBhire.

On June 25th ihe onward movement to the holy city began. Thu mount was like a battlefield strewed with dead and dyir g. So frightfully (lid the cholera rage that it wan possible for any living creature to approich tie 1) ace. At length a battalion of Turkish troops was .enli to bmy the The battalioa was 70Ostrong.
