All theories of the orign of cholera nssign it to
India. In the district of Jessore, in the province
of Bengal, it appears to be indigenous and perma
nent. In 1 iti 1 over thirty thousand ot the natives
of Jlindoslan peiirhed from its ravages. In 1H20
it scourged tho presidency of Kombnv, carrying
olT ono hundred and filly thousand persons. The
next year fifty thousand fell Victims to it at Has
sura, it had now set oiit on its travels to tiie
countries- of the 'Mediterranean, following by the
onmmcrcla throughtares. lb 1830 it devastated
In CVftilier, 131, it reached tho north of Fog-
land. The atmoRiherc nt. tho time wns singnlari'y
stngnnnt, close and hot, for many weeks afterward.
In lwiroc nil great epidemics nave occurred in
periods of prolonged drought; -violent and copious
rains-ehecking, nhd gentle rains diffusing them.
Cholera jtpjienrcd at 1 IJantzic on the 2flth of
May, 1031; nnd on the 10th -of June, Field-Marshal
Diebitx, commanding (he Russian army in
Poland; Ml a victim. ; The Grand 'Duke Cbtieutnr
tine also died on the 27lh. ., In Austria 87,770
H'i-Uhcd, nnd 150,000 in Hungary.' The mortality
in Paris w as 1,402; and in England over 30,000.
In 1832 it crossed (he Atlantic, hurrying, from city
to riv, mud sweeping down the Gulf of Mexico to
Yuentnn and Canipcnehy. '"
The rale of its mortality" was uniform in every
part of the world. The jierlod of the epidemic
seems to' hare controlled it. At the first outset
nilic-tenlhs of nil attacked Wamo victims; then
seven-eights; five-sixth,'' three-fourth. ' one-half,
one-third, c: The feeble, tho sick, nnd convales
cent were surest to die.
' In 1848 the cholera tendency 'again prevailed;
and in 18l!, the scoumge of tho East again visited
this country. It seems to haro been somewhat
more controllable byVcmedial agents but, never
theless, maintained its general severity. '

Tho followine remarkable letter front Bishop
Elliot, of Georgia, touchlng the possible reuaion of
the Episcopal Church, appcap in this Week' Church
Journal, to a letter from the editor, of which it is a
rejoinder. The letter is dated Angusta, Aug. 1,
185: .. 51. .f. , ' , T
"I m Tery clad tlmt yon have cone so much at
largo into the question of the r?nAionot UieUMtrch,
as it eives me an opportunity of 'iliuing before you
my views in regard to the matter, which differ
somewhat In regard to your own, as expressed In
your letter to me, and also from the action ol
tbeCaurch in the Uiocese oi .lexas. . 1 -i
My objection to the action of the Diocese of
Texia is not so much as to what she has done, as to
her manner of, doing it. The reunion will hike
i!.ice, and that, very soou, I have no doubt) but.
I ought to take place in such wise as to preserve
onr good faith to onr brethren and to each other.
Texns seems to have forgotten that ns tho t'ro
testant Fpiscopal Church in the Confederate States
we performed certain acts which need recogni
tion and confirmation,' and' wliich should not be
left, in justice to others, without settlement in
the very act of reunion. - ...-;' , '
Of these, the consecration of Bishop v aura is
the most important, not only on his own Account,
but because it involves all Ins -oluuial acta since
his entrance upon hi Episcopate. Besides this
we. have admitted Arkansas as a diocese, and
have elected Bishop Lay as the Diocesan Bishop.
These acta do not, indeed, involve such momen
tous consequences as the ' other, but they are,
nevertheless, of importance" enough to demnnd
recognition. i.:; ', "
'Besides, I think that it is our duty to guard
the memory of deetased Bishops, Mkapx, Otxy,
and especially ur' beloved Poj.K. ' Not that we
should expeci any:tndnTSQnient'from the General
Com-emion m their views and 'actions, bnf thai
we should feel assured that no reproach, cither
dnecl .or .implied, will be cast npoa tboir grsves.
About ourselves, .the living, we core but little j
we are here ami can defend ourselves: but the
reputation of tin) dead is" in our keeping, nnd we
can fratornise with nobody who would "willingly1
dlst nib their ashes. They hare Iired nnd died
for us, and liowevcs wrong others mny. think
theni, we revere their memory and weep over
their graves. .-. -, - (. ..." c ....... ,
Kor, I fiadcly sny it, do I anticipate when re
calling the .worthy, high-toned, .men who once
formed our General Convention, any action, that
wouUl be dMiiarnging to, them : or painful to us;
but ytt I feef iit to he the duty of the. church
over which I have been called temporarily to pre

Below will be found a petition from four han
drcd and tixtcen lidict of Holly Springs, Miss, to
President Johnson, praying Executive clemency for
Mr. Davis. n The petition throughout is a benHiiful
collection of trntlis and focU that can be denied by
none, aud the names of those Indies, the first of all
the Soif.h . to step forward and pray for clemency
fbr hira who six months ago was popular find freely
sustained, should b embalmed In verse of Homeric
grandeur ai.d wreathed with flowers that will never j
fade. - They have, true, to their sex, demonstrated
that when they admire or love, they uo so us well
in adversity as pro.iicrity. ' : ' 1
But when they nyi: "Mr." Davis e tlie repre
sentntive of the defcittcd ;p&rty, and railed, , as he
wu.., by, the almost united voice uf .tht Southern .
people, to preside ovt their rouueils and guide

had .bo fore represented their views in timet of

denied by none, even though they .bp bis enemies
and enemies ns; bitter ns gall and poisonous as
black hellebore. He vat the choice of the pvple,
and had the move been successful the loud acclaim
thai would have arose from the people of the
South in his praisa.nnd honor, would hnve shook
! the pillars of earth nnd startled tho inhabitants of
the world. '., i. 'i ' . .! - .-.
, Thcro were many in the South during the wo.,
who were opposed to tho administration of Mr.
Davis and to his stubbornness, but there were few
who opposed the cause be wot leading and reprt
sentingi - This is a fact plain, undoninble, stub
born fact and to deny it with truth and reason is
an impossibility, " .
But for fear of helnj' rrrlsnnderslood or miscon
stmed, we will explain. ' Just previous to the sur
render the people wero heartily- tired of the, war
and anxious for peace, but had they been convinced,
by tome supernatural power, that a prolongation of
the war for ono or even two years would hare given
the South her independence, they" would have said,
In the language of ,pne- of Georgia's distinguished
tons, "On with the revolution,"., But they taw, by
the diiily decrease of our power and resources, that
the contest wns a hopeless nnd useless one, And,
seoing , this, they wanted to dam up wilu peace
the streams of blood that were running like rivulets
over the land. , . . ... . , . , . , .
Had the desire for peace nnd a sufficiency of sup
porters and advocates the war rould have bieiv ter
minated in Sixty-two, Sixty-three, or nny time'.
The- people in (heir might could have arose and
declared to the- Itichinoud authorities, "thus far
and no father 'shall thou go ;" end iu this event
what could nave neen done r othlng nt nil ; and
this every hi in in the North, of ordinary penetra
tion, knows. .,- , .
The neglwt and silence in regard to. Mr, Davis
future, on the' part of the people of the South,
does not contribute In the lenrt in forcing Upon the
North the belief that we in future intond to remain
loyal to and support the Government of the United
Stntet. They would believe, this just . as quick
and willingly, even though every town and city
sent forward an njiplkntlon fordemfcney In the es?e
of Mf. Deris. -:: i r- t-.,Si.i. i--.rS re
it this be true, aud we suppose none will deny
it, why are the people remaining silunt and uttering
no word in favor of him who brought misfortune
nod danger' upon himself for their sake and at
their bidding? ; At w: bave : previously said, ,-Mr.
Davis, were, he pardoned and permitted to return
to bis home, would in future live ns loyal and ren
der as hearty support to the United States Govern

land and in solitude spend the remainder of his
days. lit ran be of no danger abi-oad anil ai men

It is well known to your rfxrellcncy, thai for

fostered by extremists both North and Month, which
led to n general couflict of arms, and tUu-sheddiug

sword to sucnumb; to the vletort and their success,
the plaudits uf the 4ortu has be n given bounti

Mr, Davis was but the rrm esentatire of the de

over their councils, and guide them through the
terniilc storms of war, he was but doing their bid

" '-"' ' 1 ' LQOK tP. -:
Truly the shadows of a great Itloom bath fallen
upon us. But shall wti therefor tread lift's rugged
path with the bend bowed down like a bniruxit T
Look up. Above ns ate the heavens mdinut with '
worlds of brightness kntl traity, whow llgM rtmlt
yrt scatter the rifted cloiuls and shed it bright
sheen upon our future inlhwny. ,
It is true, surrounded by difflcnltirS on every '
hand, w9 are now passing through a political crisis '
without a precedent or a parallel.
,Yct we have touch to encourage onr hopes of the
future. The President is fiobly breasting the storm
of Opposition, find rising like political Plbralter '
above a sea oi troubles, cchoct back over the proud
wave of fanaticism, wlncli furgo around, "thnt
fir thalt thou go,-and no farther." He ecemt de
termined to Ruanrthr right of the Southern States, '
and afford them every facility for assuming agaia
their prnprr position In the groat sisterhood of '
Stales,, clothed with equal dignity and rights.
And, no doubt, in a few months our Slate Govern
ment will bo re-organl.ed under the administration
of wtsa and just Iowa, appropriate to the present
crisis, and we than tee tout Ueorgia has the recaps- t
rative. energy to rise superiur to all changes and .
maintain her proud title as the Umpire State of the
South. ' ' '
Then took np ; ' for a brighter day w ill toon dawn
upon our political horixon with healing i it
wing3. It is true slavery It dead, buried, and not ,
even its most sanguine votary would presume ti
prophc-ry the hflpe of its resurrection. ' By its' end '
den abolition tho South hat been ImpovtrMied-"--
iti whole industrial economy deranged, and for a
time at least, coufusion and disorder ( pcrvadet ,
erery department of ialair and business. But even
thl, by wise nnd salutary legislation, may lie Tea- 1
dered only a teniporary embarrassinent. For nure- ;
ly we do not mean to sit down supinely under tint
kiss leave the land lo become a sterile waste the, ,
homo of desolation nnd famine, under the homilia
tmg acknowledgment that slavery It Indispensably '
nocrtsarr. to the life of tho South that we anno i
live and prosper .wituout;t at othcrt have done.
No. , We aro Americans .heirs of the hluod and t
muscle, the brains, the bounding pulse and nil tho
activities of the great old Saxon heart descend- '
anU ot the men who have made a wildemoM-ooa-tiucnt
to bloom as a garden, nnd planted thereon a -government
which, ns (hp model of (be niuiups, is
tho political hope nnd heritage of tho world. '
That blood still flows In our' veins; lot it m
stagnate around drooping heart, hut set brain and
muscle to work, and demonstrate to tho, world .
that the energy aud intelligence of the South ran
suliordinate all changes to her Interests, control her '
industrial resources to the best advantage 'of all iti
her midst, and oome forth from the proseut crisis .
with that dignity and prosperity which becomes , '
her character and. her history. Look upi the
greeh grain Will again ware richly o'er your foi'tile '
fields, and the tower and the reaper shall rejoice to.-:
getlier. i, Your hills and valleys, again whitened i
with the teeming crops, shall demonstrate that.,
though cotton it not king, yot it it tho unfailing,
wealth of the South, and the commissary general
of the world. ' i.-..r .; -.i ; t " 1
True to herself, and obudieut to every instinct of t
her nature, the Sonth will accommodate herself,,
triumphantly to the, conclusion which has been
forcccd upon her by the? inexorable logic of lata
events. ' Though the cannot control the turbid'
waters whose surging billows have swept away her '
prosperity nd her wealth, yet tho can rise above,
the highest wave, siirvivo the wrecks of the storm,
and rebuild again her fallen fortunes upon a rdoro
prosperous and pcrmnncntfbdndntion.
Look np; yon are poof we are all poor; but
groaning and growling tigliiug fur sympathy and
puling round with sickly, rain regret for the un, ,
ciiungcablo p st, mingled with timid murmuring,
against men and measures, will not mend your
fortunes. Let -"the dead past bury its dead,'' and'
leave it to solitude and silence, nnd waiuler not in.
its graveyard, like one of obi, who dwelt among,
the tombs wounded nnd bleeding. ' But, with God

'an example must be mode. It wilt not no t6 per

hang the leaders.' t To what end ? Is not the South
already sufliciently devastated and impoverished?
Hat not their bravest and best blood been milted
in vain, and has not an' ignominious defeat burst
into their very souls like hot Iron? Is not their
