We do not know how many farmers were present, or who they were, but the meeting passed an exceedingly eulogistic resolution of the Jiural Sun, and requested the Chronicle to publish it.

As I was walking on the streets this afternoon I saw aa old gentle man very excited and busily filling pre scriptions lo a crowd anxiously awaiting their turn. I asked him what the facts were about the cholera, lie aswered, "It is epi demic and getting worse. There is no use denying the facts." I can not say that the disease is "Asiatic," it seems to me to be "domestic." Every case, without an ex ception bo far as I can hear, is attributable to the imprudence lu eating or drinking.
