Bishop Co?, of Kew? York, on Re?
union or the Episcopal Church.
Having given the Bishop of Geor?
gia's views, we give the following ex?
tract from Bishop Coxe's Diocesan
The question arises as to the resto?
ration of legislative unity with our
brethren the South. Essential
unity has nBr been for a minute sus?
pended; andwbow, it seems to me,
that nearly all questions between us
and them will be settled by the calling
of the roll of the Convention, and by
their appearing and answering to their
names. The case of the Bishop of
Alabama, elected and consecrated dur?
ing the war, admits of no doubt and
presents no great difficulty. The va?
lidity of his consecration is acknow?
ledged; but certain measures will be
necessary, as in the case of Bishop
Seabury, who was consecrated in Scot?
land, to give the new Bishop a canon?
ical position. In due time, we cannot
doubt our Southern brethren will all
be found again in their places, and
how shall they be received? Can there
be any question ? How was it in tho day
when a? Israel was restored to David?
4 'Shall there be any man put to death
this day in Israel?" If our brethren
have erred, surely they have suffered;
if any punishment is to be meted out
t J them, let us rejoice that the State,
and not the Church, is the minister of
wrath. It is our blessed privilege to
forgive, and as Christians, at least, to
remember no more what we commit?
ted to God's arbitration, and what, in
his Providence, is settled and gone
by. On the great national questions
that divided us, no man felt more
deeply, nobody acted more conscien?
tiously, than myself. I felt that there
could be but one issue to the war, con?
sistent, with truth and justice, the
cause of humanity and of our holy re?
ligion. But, I trust such convictions
were not polluted by resentful im?
pulses, nor by worse instincts of re?
venge, hatred and malice. And now,
when all is over, what can a Christian
find within him but a warm revival of
old affections and friendships, and a
longing for the old fraternal counsels
.and communing. Let the power of
our religion be seen and felt by allour
-countryMen. Let us address our
.selves to the new and trying emergen?
cies created by tho new condition of
things in the Southern States. Let
ns feel that such is the highest service
-we can now render to our country,
?and that it is in our power, as a
.Church, to do more, perhaps, than
.others in this way. Andas nature has
begun already to cover over the red
fields of war with her peaceful harvests
and her refreshing verdure, so let
grace mantle the past with charity,
and mi?ke lin infirmities of men give
place to the fruits of the Spirits.
Carl Shurz, whilst traveling through
the South upon a special mission from
the Government, is writing letters to
n Northern paper, the tone of which
letters, it is believed, is calculated to
do more injury than the Shurz mission
is likely to do good. The intention
of the Government when Shurz was
sent to the South was to have him
quietly perform his mission and make
an official report to the War Depart?

Progrews of th? Cholera.?
The London News, of the 18th ult.,
has the following relative to the pro?
gress of the cholera:
The cholera is at Marseilles. Al?
ready ten deaths are reported in one
day from the disease. It would be
idle to pretend that this intelligence
has not an alarming significance for
us who dwell within thirty-six hours
distance from that city. There has
been a very steady Westward progress
of this terrible disorder since it broke
out in a very fatal form, in 1861,
among the North-western Provincas of
India. The little cloud, no bigger
than a man's hand, observed by the
prophet's servant, was followed by the
heavens becoming black with cloud,
and wind, and a great rain. So the dis?
ease, at first described in the distance,
has gathered at last over Southern
Europe, and its most Westward Pro?
vinces are threatened with the pesti?
lence which is even now raging on the
shores of the Mediterranean.
Since its outbreak at Alexandria in
May, the cholera has spread with a
rapidity which is almost unusual to a
large number of places. Cairo, Roset?
ta, Zaga zig, and Mecca, have been in
tum invaded. In less than a month
Cairo lost no less than five thous .nd
two hundred and forty-nine of its in?
habitants. Damietta suffered still
more severely, one thousand four
hundred and eighty-five persons hav?
ing been reported as victims out of a
population of abo?t forty thousand.
Smyrna and Constantinople then re?
ceived the infection, and, as far as
known, are still suffering extensively
from the disorder. Many of the
islands in the ?Egean have been at?
tacked. Malta has suffered, though
not as yet very severely, if the pub?
lished accounts can be relied upon.
Cholera has appeared also in Sicily,
and Italy has not escaped.
Ancona is very seriously affected. ?
On the 7th inst., two hundred and '
seven new cases were reported, of ,
which one hundred and two proved I
fatal. A panic is described as exist- :
ing in the city, and about eight thou?
sand of the inhabitants are said to
have quitted the place. In such a
crisis it is satisfactory to read that the
Italian medical men remain true to
their vocation. Upon being appealed
to by the Government authorities at
Florence to furnish assistance to the
sick at Ancona, there was a cordial
and unanimous response. "All were
ready to go," was the answer.
It is a fact of no little importance in
reference to the probability of an out?
break of cholera in England, that
during the present year diarrhoea has
been more than usually prevalent.
The same circumstance was observed
before the epidemics of 1831 and 1848.
It is usual, too, for such visitations to
be preceded by disorder among the
lower animals. The cattle plague ex?
isting at the present hour will have its
importance terribly increased if it
prove the precursor of cholera. More?
over, in the last report but one of the
Registrar-General, 23 deaths were
registered as occurring from cholera.
Last week this number was reduced to
nineteen. Of these latter, six wore
those of adults. It would appear,
then, that the disease is already among
There is no doubt, indeed, that
since the great epidemic of 1831 chol?
era has become more or loss indigen?
ous to this country. Not a summer
passes without the occurrence of some
cases of the disease. They are, how?
ever, scattered-"sporadic" is the
technical term-and it is only at cer
tair times that the malady becomes
epidemic. It would seem, indeed,
that the seeds of cholera nra always
present, but that some peculiar at?
mospheric condition is necessary to
develop the disorder. Such a condi?
tion, there is no reason to doubt, is
now present in Europe. It remains
to be seen whether its force will be
exerted in England.
THE TOOTH OF TIME.-"When Nine?
vah has departed, and Palmyra is in
ruins; when imperial Rome has fallen,
and the Pyramids themselves are sink?
ing into decay, it is no wonder,"
sighed a French humorist, "that my
old black coat should be getting seedy
at the elbows."
The Assault on Ex-Gcneral Wheeler?
The recent attack upon Mr. "Wheeler,
late a General in the Confederate'
army, by two Federal officers, at Nash?
ville, has elicited the following severe
order from Gen. Thomas:
HEADQ'I?S M. 'jr;"?Y DIV. TENN.,
NASHVILLE, TENN., Aug. 26, 1865.
Brevet Brigadier-General E. C. Mason,
Commanding Post of Nashville.
GENEEAIJ: I have the honor to ac?
knowledge the receipt of your report
of the investigation ordered by the
Major-General commanding, into the
causes for the assault upon Mr. Jo?
seph Wheeler, late Major-General in
the so-called Confederate States, at
the City Hotel, in this city. Your re?
port has been carefully and impar?
tially considered by the Major-Gene?
ral commanding, and the facts therein
elicited and brought out, with other
facts in the same connection which,
have been brought to his notice, show
tin* attack on Mr. Wheeler By Lieuts
nant-Col< >nel Blackburn and Captain
Quinn, Fourth Tennessee Cavalry,
wholly unprovoked and unjustifiable,
and unbecoming an officer in the ser?
vice of the United States.
Mr. Wheeler, as a paroled prisoner,
is justly entitled to protection, in?
stead of being exposed to assaults,
his position, by virtue of his pnrole,
an unarmed man, and hence without
means of defence, should have been,
and must in future be, respected, and
not only in his case, but in thc case of
all other persons occupying a similar
You xi ??I convey to Lieu tenant-Col?
onel Blackburn and Captain Quinn,
of the Fourth Tennessee Cava'ry, the
notification of the displeasure and re?
primand of Major-General Thomas for
their unoflieex-Jhkfl and highly repre?
hensible conduct, and say to them
that tho muster out of the service of
their regiment luis been the only rea?
son for their not being subjected to
arrest and trial by court-martial.
Their conduct at the time of the as?
sault, as. well as subsequently, has
been an insult and disgrace to the
uniform they wore, and it is justly
discountenanced and frowned down
upon by every honorable and high
minded officer ond enlisted man in the
The Major-General commanding
directs that you will further require
of Lieutenant-Colonel Blackburn and
Captain Quinn positive and satisfac?
tory assurance for their future good
conduct, and the strict compliance
with all orders and regulations for
the preservation and maintenance of
public peace, and at the same time
advise them that they will be held to
a strict accountability for any future
breach of the same. I am, very re?
spectfully, your ohedient servant,

Dr. Roscoe, who dressed the wounds
of Gen. Wheeler, furnishes the follow?
ing statement as given him by Gen.
Wheeler: "I went to Gen. Wheeler's
room after the difficulty, and found
him lying on a bed, bleeding pro?
fusely. I asked him how it occurred,
to which he replied, 'I was lying on
my bed and heard a rap on the door.
I got up and opened the door, and
was confronted by Colonel Blackburn
and a captain whom I did not know.
I asked them to come in and be seat?
ed, after which I extended my hand
to Colonel Blackburn, when it was
taken. by the captain, who imme?
diately grasped my arms, and Colonel
Blackburn struck me with his cane
about ten or twelve times. I strug?
gled and escaped, running to the other
side of the house, followed by Colonel
Blackburn, who struck me a number
of licks after I got on the other side
of the gallery. The crowd who had
rushed up stairs stopped the attack,
aud I returned to my room." Dr.
Roscoe, in examining the wounds of
Gen. Wheeler, found one cut on his
forehead one inch a half in length,
several contusive wounds on his head
and on the right ear, and several on
his right arm, which he received while
warding off the blows.
